When mom and dad were in Barkerville they got their picture taken. Prepare yourself…..this is unique my friends.
Mom in a bonnet and dad looking like he’d beat the cwap outta anybody interfering with his family. MOL
Today is also Collect Rocks Day so Bashful and Chip went out to the Lane to chat with the local stoners and rockers. I see them headed for home now. They have some pebble with them.
Hey Shoko I would like to introduce you to my new friend. She is very shy.
What is her name Chip? Gee, I don’t know. She grabbed a ride with us when we left Barkerville. Really? Where did she hide? She climbed into the bag with the other flats. She must be hungry….what does she eat Chip? The same as you and Bashful? Yeah, let’s get your mom to give her some of the good stuff, sifted sand. Is she alone or did someone come with her from Barkerville? Another stone came with her. This little pebble is quite young. How old is she Chip? I don’t know for sure but she is around my age. Bashful is talking with her friend and thinks he may stay with her as she is very upset about leaving Barkerville. OK, I’m sure Bashful will help her. You make her comfy Chip and try to find out her name.
Mom is very happy with her canning from the other day. The end is now in sight.
Kali is delighted with our Yeowwy Green Fish mom got from the opening of Pet Smart.
I wonder if Bashful will bring the upset stone home? Guess I’ll find out soon.
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.
