Keyhole full of lollipops?

I decided on the blog title from an old Uncle Wiggily story quote that I've loved since I read it. It goes something like:
"Oh, my goodness gracious sakes alive and a keyhole full of lollipops," said Nurse Jane Fuzzy Wuzzy to the rabbit gentleman.
Other than indicating surprise and dismay, coupled in equal parts, this sentence manages to slide in a bunch of funny sounding words that fascinate small children and elder fellers alike. Some of the stories are free from Project Gutenberg, so get them to explore for yourself or read to the youngsters in the house.
