Barbie, but not squirrels?

WM Just hanging out

I’m not terribly happy about the bias I see regarding Barbie the doll and squirrels.

First of all, Barbie isn’t real and yet there are chairs made for her…kitchen sets, beds, briefcases, purses, earrings, clothes, cars, bikes, shoes, houses, you see what I’m getting at.

There is a huge market that the folks fixated on Barbie are ignoring, which leaves a HUUGGE opportunity for someone who wants to make a fortune in the squirrel market.

Squirrels are REAL and they could actually use furniture. They can bend their knees to pedal those bikes they make for Barbie.I’m sure with just a few lessons they could drive a car. Look at the poor squirrel in the picture above, I’m sure it would be so happy to have a sofa to lounge on. 

A lot of muscular squirrels could start a moving company, some squirrels seem kind of scrawny and I don’t think they’d have the strength to get a chair or a piano up into a tree.

So there’s my pitch for better living for squirrels. They’re more than just a pretty face and long legs.

 

WHAT YOUR GARDEN IS REALLY TALKING ABOUT…

(I know this little story is all kinds of a mess grammatically speaking, along with all kinds of other improper treatment of the english language…but you know me…when the mood strikes, watch out…I’ll write anything. Apologizing in advance…)

I WAS QUITE PLEASED WITH MY JOB IN MY NEW GARDEN HOME, THE GARDENER CALLED ME IMPORTANT, BUT HER VOICE HELD A “TONE”.

SETTLED IN, I DISCOVERED A POT WITH A SQUIRREL CLINGING TO IT…I DECIDED TO ASK IF THE POT EVEN KNEW IT.

“HEY-HO LITTLE CLAY, WHO’S THE FRIEND ON YOUR HEAD?”

“A COMPLETE STRANGER TO ME,” THE LITTLE POT SAID.

“DO YOU CARE THAT IT’S FEET MIGHT BE DIRTY AND YUCKY?” 

“NOT A BIT,” SAID THE POT. “I COUNT MYSELF LUCKY.”

“I DON’T UNDERSTAND,” I QUESTIONED AGAIN. “YOU NEVER KNOW WHERE THOSE FEET MIGHT HAVE BEEN.”

“SQUIRREL FEET ARE NOTHING COMPARED TO A FLOWER…WITH THEM COME DEMANDS, AT LEAST ONE AN HOUR.”

THE POT WASN’T FINISHED, IT WAS JUST GETTING STARTED…THE CHAT I’D ENJOYED WAS NO LONGER LIGHT-HEARTED.

“A FLOWER COMPLAINS, ‘I’M TOO DRY, I’M TOO WET…WHY HASN’T SOMEONE THROWN MULCH ON ME YET? TO TOP IT ALL OFF, IT GROWS ROOTS THAT ARE FICKLE AND AFTER A WHILE THOSE ROOTS START TO TICKLE.

STILL…I’D STILL RATHER BE ME, I’M SO GLAD I’M NOT YOU,” THE POT SAID WITH CONVICTION THAT REALLY RANG TRUE.

“I’M OFFENDED!” I CHALLENGED. THE POT JUST LOOKED WISER.

“YOU DO KNOW OF COURSE, THAT YOU’RE FERTILIZER?

HE FREAKED ME OUT FIRST…

Who's freaking who out? (1 of 1)

 

 

AFTER OLIVER GOT DONE WRESTLING WITH THE PRACTICE TIGER AND THE MOUSE AND THE DOG, HE WAS KIND OF TIRED. HE WAS GETTING READY FOR  A SNOOZE IN THE SUN WHEN I NOTICED THE EYES BEHIND  HIM…AND THEN I NOTICED HIS EYES…AND THEN I JUST FREAKED OUT!

IT WAS A WHOLE LOT LESS STRESSFUL UP ON THE  SPACESHIP TAKING ALL THOSE TESTS…YOU HAVE TO READ A FEW POSTS BACK TO KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT.

THEY TOLD ME THAT I SCORED 1,700 OUT OF 2 ON MY TESTS.  I GUESS THAT’S A GOOD SCORE BECAUSE THEY GAVE ME THIS REALLY COOL TATTOO. 

I DON’T READ ALIEN WORDS REAL WELL…BUT IT LOOKS LIKE A STRING OF LETTERS….

THESE ARE THE LETTERS….M…O…R…O…N…      I KNOW THAT’S SHORT FOR SOMETHING.

MAYBE “MOST ORIGINAL ROUTE OF NEURONS”…

MAYBE “MAGNIFICENT ORATOR ,..RADIANT NARCISSIST.”

SORRY, I STARTED OUT TALKING ABOUT OLIVER, I DIDN’T MEAN TO MAKE IT ALL ABOUT ME.

HE MADE THE TEAM!

We just COULDN’T be happier…all of those minutes driving Oliver to basketball practice have paid off! He made it onto the team at F.E.L.I.N.E. University!!!

Of course he doesn’t attend the University, but they made a special exception because he is such an amazing player…This picture shows him mid-leap as he goes in for the winning shot…I need to find a F.E.L.I.N.E. University sticker to put on my car window!

By the way…I didn’t photoshop this except to rotate the image..he likes to lay on his back for some “cat” reason.

 

REMEMBER THE DAY???

Do you remember when I used to post images of the bald-headed little squirrel? Well…I miss those days…The bald-headed
squirrel grew his hair back and I’m glad for him…

Here’s a little bit of nostalgia….I posted this back in the glory days of the bald headed squirrel… I hope you enjoy it..
