a funny thing happened..

Gee, what's happening to me? I've got this cute new header, a great computer, super blog friends, enough free time... and I am NOT blogging much! Like a treasured long time friend whom you've lost touch with, It would pain me to just stop this relationship. So here I am tonight, getting together with this friend, Me with my raspberry cosmo on my coaster and my dog cosmo keeping my toes warm. My friend Mac with his freshly dusted screen wearing Sherries whimsical art work. So now what?
what's been new Mac? 'Not much.. feeling a bit sluggish lately.. maybe you need to clean out my cache or something. What's new with You, Lu?'
Well a funny thing happened the other day Mac, that keeps running through my head and making me giggle. It's not really funny, it's actually quite scary.. would you like me to tell you about it?
"Hey! it may be the ice breaker we need, go for it"
Okay... well, the other day I came home and listened to my messages.. One was from my neighbor who asked if I got the same flyer in MY mailbox that he got in his.. The flyer only said..
The Squirrels are coming.. So, he told me he was going to call the cops... I thought to myself? Why call the cops? Maybe we're getting an early spring and someone is warning us that there will be more troublesome squirrels than we normally have to deal with? I was more confused than I normally am so I gave him a call... I said.. No, I didn't get that flyer, but why are you calling the cops, just because someone's telling you that squirrels are coming? (this is the funny part).. He cracked up laughing and said.. I didn't say it said the SQUIRRELS are coming you wacko.. I said it said... the SKULLs are coming!
(here is the scary part) I said .. SKulls?? what the heck does that mean? He said the skulls are a gang and this was a threat!! (Holy Crap!) Pretty scary,no? I've never heard of them myself, but this neighbor is a bit more savvy about things like this, so I totally trust his instincts.
Well, since this has happened, I've been wanting to call him and leave a message saying... 'beware of the squirrels"!
I know I am the ONLY one laughing right now! It is just cracking me up, the way silly things sometimes do.. So here and there through the week, I've just burst into laughter, leaving my family confused. (join my club family) thinking about the misunderstanding and how funny it would have been if the flyer DID say Squirrels. Are u with me Mac? "yeah, and I am beginning to understand why our relationship has been stagnant." (sigh) Me too.

I saw on the news that there is a new gang in town called the skulls and they are letting a bunch of squirrels join to get revenge against Mr. petals for what he did to there squirrel pal.

The squirrels have already arrived at my redwood trree, and, what's more, they think it's spring as he chases her up and down and around. I think there will soon be an increase in my squirrel population.

Thank you for having a blog conscience! (i.e. glad to see you back!)

Hey Lucy! I have been feeling the same way! Strange! Maybe a bit of blogfatigue? I don't know.

As for squirrels? It is THE word in our house if you want to get a rise out of an old Golden Lab. Lily perks right up if you mention the name.

I will have to think about this week's SS........message........hmmmmm......

ps. your blog is so upbeat, friendly and colourfully welcoming. I love it.

Hi Lucy, I missed you! As I write this there is a pesky squirrel sitting on the birdtable outside my window eating their food and staring at me! At least I think it' a squirrel and not a scull!

Patois said...

Well, you know, as Doug said in the movie "Up" when he SQUIRREL!

A gang of squirrels.

Classic.

Lucy I thought I was the only one with a mind that wanders off and mishears things like that. Funny, I wonder if it is my ears of my brain at times. Grinning at you.
