Back in "Da Burg"....and a Caricature Story

Hi Bloggies.....

After 3 days of ridin' in the car with Gram, Pap, my Mom, 'n Toby.....we got back ta "da Burg". Gee, we thought that we would never get there.....ever.....

We made a friend while we were there...... 'n we wanted ta bring the little fellow home but Gram 'n Pap said we couldn't.....ain't he cute....he's a sandhill crane......he would have made a wonderful pal for Toby.....


The first thing that I did when we got back was grab one of my favorite toys. I see that no one stole it while we were gone....'n that's a good thing too.....

Can ya believe that we had NO TOYS while we were in Florida at all ????? None, I tell ya.....it was awful....but we were sure glad ta see ours once we got home again......


I just love this toy ta death..........

We missed a lot of the spring flowers bloomin' but we did get back in time ta see these........

Gram's dogwood was bloomin' it's little heart out.....

The pink azalea was openin' it's pretty flowers......

The lilac bush still had flowers on it.....

The Bridal Wreath were startin' ta bloom.....

'N the sweet shrub had the prettiest leaves 'n it's flowers out on display.......

Taday we got ta take a walk....'n I found a swell ball layin' in the street.......I had ta have it.....I just had ta........



Fer some strange reason, the ball lost all of it's air while I was playin' with it.....dumb ball................it wasn't nearly as much fun ta play with once it was flat but I tried ta have fun anyway.......

Tell the Story in the Caricature Contest at Mercury’s Blog!
.
'N now I have ta tell a story....

Why ???

Because Mercury, who is Oorvi's Mom and our friend, is a caricaturist besides bein' a really smart person with impeccable English.... 'n she asked people ta write a story about what's happenin' in the caricature below......

So I scratched my head fer awhile....grabbed Gram....'n told her what I think the story is behind this picture....

'N here it is....
*********************************

I tell ya Mercury….yer always givin’ guys big noses..... ‘n this guy isn’t any different….another whopper of a schnauzola…….looks like a divin’ board…yep…fer sure….why that mouse could take a high-dive off it and win the Olympics…..


So what’s the story behind it all……


Well, I tell ya that the story is in the mouse. See ‘em ???? He stands big ‘n tall….. ‘n he looks at that horrible creature that’s pointin’ at his watch….. right in the eye.... I tell ya…..right in the eye…..he’s not afraid of ‘em at all…no siree…..

Now anyone else would be afraid of that creature because he looks menacin’…..yep….why look at the braids in his beard and that horrible hairdo….ya could braid his eye brows too if ya tried…’n the hair on his arms too…..that’s a gent ta keep at a distance…..fer sure…..miles away…..

So he hired the mouse ta eliminate a few vermin that were getting’ in the way of his business….which was not anything in the personal improvement/hygiene department at all.

Why….Ya may ask…. would he hire a mouse ???? He hired ‘em because he’s small ‘n can sneak inta small places and then POP the bad guys when they least expect it. Now, there is a bit of a logistical problem with him scurrying around inta small holes with that gun and ammo he’s totin’ but he is a “Problem Solver”…. ‘n he has found a way ta get IN….’n then get OUT again without anyone knowin’ it was him that did the “DASTARDLY DEED”. Yep, they call ‘em “The Rodent Raider”….’n he’s ta be feared by all.

Now “Protruding Proboscis” is askin’ fer it if he persists in tryin’ ta put the fear of the god inta that mouse…..scoldin’ ‘em like he was a wayward child is sheer folly…..He most certainly was not late getting’ back from the assignment….he stopped fer a spot of peanut butter on the way back…that’s all.

Yep, if “Protruding Proboscis” knows what’s good fer ‘em….he’ll put that waggin’ finger of his back inta his pocket and tell the mouse what a good job he did on his last assignment and pay ‘em fer his services. I fear that otherwise he will lose that finger and a lot more in the scuffle as “The Rodent Raider” will work silently, eliminate the braided hairball and slip away through a hole in the wall. He will never be caught either..........

So that’s my story…..’n I’m stickin’ to it !!!!!!!

Welcome home, Dewey and family! You must've been REALLY glad to be reunited with those toys. (You've just prompted me to make a pile of toys to take with us with we drive three days TO Florida in another month or so. I couldn't survive without my toys. Nope. Huh uh.)

Your Pittsburgh colors sure are pretty! And your ball is the bomb. You've got great shaking style.

Rest up from your trip!

Your pals,
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Hi Dewey,

I am so happy to know that you are back and that you are having a wonderful time with your toys. I watched your video twice:)

Thanks for posting the story. You've got a way with words (or did Gram help you with those names and words?)
The contest closes on April 30, 2010:)

Love,
Shafali

Welcome back to our blggbg world. Before we say another word, however, please send us your telephone number in Sebring so we'll be able to reach you when you are so much nearer to us next winter. (You have our e-mail, right?)

We looked at Oorvi's mom's caricature contest and confess we're not all that clever when it comes to making up stories -- so we do admire your tale. The caricatures are amazing though.

So, we hope you're content to be back home and we look forward to hearing more about your adventures in da Burgh!!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Maggie and Mitch

Eric said...

Hey pals!Wagging to se you again and that you're safely back home. Neat that all the flowers came out to meet you and your toys were safe.

What's up with no toys on your trip to Florida? Sheese your leggeds forget? Better do your own packing and sneak a few in your suitcase next time.

Wiry love Eric xx

Hi, Dewey!
Hurray! Glad to see you all are back at home!
But... no toys for you in Florida??? Not fair, right??
I loved your shake-shake video! I do the same with my ball!
Great story for Oorvi's mom!
Good luck!
Kisses and hugs

Yikes! That sure is a scary looking guy to me. But little mouse can handle him.

Love the video of you, Dewey, with the "ball". That's a keeper.

Welcome home. It must have felt strange when you first walked in your house. Did it look different? Did it feel like home?


Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie

Hi Dewey,
Mom's Kodak Easy Share program did our current header pic but lots of them were done at www.befunky.com
It's cartoonized and it's really fun! Our mom is addicted! Does this mean it's a sickness?!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

We like your birdie friend but we can not understand how you had no toys while you were gone. That sounds just wrong!

Hi Dewey,

Where are you?
What's happening in Petsburg? We've been busy...all of us - and it seems that you've been busy too. Good. Is Gram's garden all dug up?

Mercury wants to know if she can write to Gram (I told her that I should run it through you first...)

Licks n wags,
Oorvi
