South Meets North

The doorbell rang and I ran and hid……as usual.  There was a brief exchange of words and the door closed.  Whew!  No visitors, just the way I like it.  I came hot pawing it out from the bedroom.  The postman had given mom an envelope.  What is it….c’mon open it!

Hey, its from Bacon’s mom!  Sitting in the envelope looking cool and calm, sat Bashful and his son Chip.  The two pet rocks from Georgia.  Mom was delighted.  Kali and I smelled something else in the envelope.

  These are treats, yippee!  Hope ole cheap skate gives us lots.                                                      There’s a toy that looks like Bacon.  I claim it as mine!  Look at the little monster with arms and legs.  Shoko would just bite through the cotton and eat the legs.  So I claim the monster toy too.  Mom will share the treats between us so I’m ok there.

Meow with you later Kali.  Does everyone know the story of Bashful and Chip?  They have quite the story.  Here is Bashful’s tail :

In 2013, Bashful headed over to Australia for a visit with Fozziemum.  Bashful made a movie called Rockadile Dundee.  His co-star was Bimby.  They fell in love.  Bashful then returned  home.

Bashful returned to Australia in December of last year.  He was having an awesome time with Fozziemum and Fozziepa.  Then one day his life changed.  Bimby showed up at Fozziemum’s doorstep drunk, with Chip in tow.  Bimby was now an alcoholic.  She wanted to go into rehab and turn her life around.  She hated to admit it but she could no longer care for Chip and gave Bashful all parental rights.  Bashful had always wanted a pebble of his own, so was delighted that Chip would return to the Scold, rocktates with him.

Now, Bashful and chip are here in Canada for a wonderful visit.  Any words of wisdom Bashful?  “It’s cold up here.”  There you have it friends.  This seems to be the most outstanding feature of Canada to a rock, a special rock.

    Maybe your mom can knit a couple of tiny sweaters for the visitors. They can wear them on their adventures! Or maybe just wrap them in a napkin…..

    Love and licks,

      MOL…MOL…You haven’t seen mom’s knitting! A napkin would keep them warmer. Give them a few more days and they will be climatized. They are busy little guys….there just as nosy as I am.

      We’re having a great time Easy. Bimby couldn’t handle it up here. !ts too cold right now. I couldn’t handle the endless nip cocktails. There’d be no nip left for us. That’s a great way to tick Kali and I off. We don’t need the stink og burning nip around here..the inversions of the pulp mill are enough stink for us.

      Nellie what a great question. Mom was out quite late last week looking along the slough (Beatrice’s old stompin’ ground) for the proper food. They eat soft silt sand, Very fine sand….this is a treat. Mom loaded up and came home with 5 sandbags full. She said this outta do them for awhile. I’ll bet you didn’t know it but these little rock suckers eat like crazy! Especially Chip…..he is a growing pebble after all.

    Hi Fishy kits,

    We don’t talk much about Chip’s mom cause she still is in rehab. We mostly talk about Bashful and Chip together. The fun that is coming for them. MOL….a chip of the ole rock….MOL…good one!

    Dharth will get to know more of Bashful and Chips shenanigans over time. There are 3 Shokos, well 4 with the real one A big one over with Easy. We thought the small one would be stepped on quickly. A medium sized one that went to Barkerville with the guys and a very small one that is the same size as Einstein, Timmy and Buddy Budd. This one is making the rounds with those mancats….well Einstein and Timmy anyway.

        That’s easy…1/ with Easy 2/ sitting on dining table…heading to drawer 3/ little Shoko is with Einstein and bros….she is the one that will travel around the states because its cheaper to send a small flat cat. Bashful and Chip are mellowing today. Yesterdaym Bashful, Chip, mom and I went up the Lane. You should have heard Bashful talking to his Canadian kin! They had a great time. I was a little ticked as I wanted to go further to see the mouse nest but mom said I must wait for them cause they’re guests. So I waited impatiently. MOL

      Bashful and Chip are having a great time here mellowing out. I’m afraid Bashful is quite cold up here so has been wearing a coat lately. Chip likes the weather here and tomorrow it will warm up to 24C. Mom has put up most of the veggies now and has more time with us. So we’ve been chill’in in the backyard.
      Hugs….big ones too,
