YAY! Friday is here! That means it’s time to fill in some blanks that we get every week from our co-hosts, Four-Legged Furballs and 15andMeowing. You can join in the fun yourself if you click the badge above and link up. It’s easy – Each of them give us two sentences full of holes – well – not holes really – blanks……and when we fill them in – you get to find out interesting stuff about US ! Coolio huh?
We have “AND MORE” in our title today because after fill-ins from ME today, we have an “EXTRA”………..it’s a little tale Mom created for a contest she’s entering. We have to publish it here on the blog as a requirement of entering so we tacked it onto the fill-ins.
Here’s the fill-in fun first…………………AND this Friday I decided that I – Teddy Bear Kimmell – would fill the blanks in ALLLLLLLL by myself with no help from Mom! My words are in GREEN.
So – what’s with the “MORE” in the title of today’s blog?
Well, Mom and I chuckle along with Evil Squirrel’s blog – those of you who are Teaser Tuesday fans know ES because he has guessed every single Teaser as being one of many quite creative and inventive prisons all around the world. Yep – his sense of humor has gotten us through some boring Teaser photos in the past AND has also cheered us up when we had NO IDEA where the Teaser photo was taken. We can always go away from Teaser Tuesday with a grin thanks to Monsieur Squirrel. ANYWAY, he’s having a contest – we’ve entered before and had an honorable mention (yay Mom). The contest is totally fun………………and if you’d like to find out what the deal is for this year’s contest, just CLICK HERE. Who knows – maybe YOU might want to enter.
At any rate, Mom (aka my Graphics Department) said she’d take a whack at it. Here’s her official entry into the SIXTH ANNUAL CONTEST OF WHATEVER on Evil Squirrel’s blog:
A Squirrel Walks Into A Bar…………
“Set ‘em up Joe!” said Freddy as he climbed aboard an empty barstool. “What a day – I’ve been thinking about this first acorn juice slammer since about lunchtime as I lugged the last leaf up to the nest”.
Joe put Freddy’s drink on the obligatory bar napkin and wiped the bar as was his habit just in case a drop had splashed. Then he watched Freddy gulp down his slammer with gusto and immediately grabbed the empty knowing another one would be needed.
“Yeah Freddy – you look beat…..this next one is on the house.”
Freddy’s nest had taken the brunt of the high winds moving through and his wife Wilma and their three kids had been complaining about the drafts from the holes in the walls. Even though there were two frosty feet of snow waiting for him at the bottom of their tree, he’d gone bravely out and gathered the more easily accessible leaves from a neighboring oak and brought them back to plug up the leaks. When he’d finished, Wilma and the kids gave him a hug of thanks and told him to enjoy seeing his buddies at the bar……but to hurry back home because it was so cold outside.
Just as Freddy picked up his “on the house” drink, the bar – which usually was humming with conversations and laughter among the patrons became quiet.
Freddy saw Joe’s mouth drop open and looked in the mirror behind Joe to see the reflection of the bar entrance wondering what had changed the atmosphere. Standing there just inside the door was a vision in silver. She was wrapped up in the luxurious fur of her long silver tail which looked warm and lush. Her almond shaped eyes scanned the room as if she was looking for a certain lucky someone.
She slowly unwrapped her tail from around her shoulders and sauntered over to the bar, sitting down right next to Freddy like she belonged there. She leaned close to Freddy and said “Hi handsome……how about buying a gal a drink??”
The bar visitors returned to their conversations and game of pool as they took sideways glances toward Freddy and his guest with envy.
Joe said, “What’ll you have Miss?” and she replied in her sultry voice, “Strawberry Squirrelarita please”…………
Joe put the Strawberry Squirrelarita down in front of the beautiful gray squirrel sitting next to Freddy and wiped the bar down before going to the next customer.
Freddy turned to his drinking companion, raised his glass and said “Wilma, thanks for making me the happiest squirrel in the forest….let’s go home to the kids.”
Ta Da……….the end
We’ll let you know how Mom does or doesn’t do in the contest………….meanwhile, we aren’t sure how many are entering or have entered so far this year. The entries are always fabulous and Mom never thinks hers are good but who knows…….this could be the year for Squirrelaritas to rule!!!! GO MOM!
Do Not Disturb……unless Mom wins of course………….
