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.
