Every Day is Bunday for Jake

Oh wait. Jake would like to clarify that. Every day is not just Bunday, every day is Snugglebunday.

Odor to a Skunk

Skunkalette, no more than a budding flower
Sweet and dewey, too sleepy to bloom
Blissfully unaware of its ultimate power
Sparing us from skunkalette perfume
Allowing for a cuddle and a sniff.
Tie-tie skunkalettes need forty-winks
And the world’s noses breathe happy
No worries about getting a whiff
Of skunkalette’s stinky-stinks
When a skunkalette takes a little nappy.

Susan R. found this on PUTube and says, “Wait for :55 for ultimate leg wiggling action. I love how he immediately falls asleep at the end!”

Flashback Friday

“He’d fly through the air with the greatest of ease,

That daring young ham on the flying trapeze!”

Tobermory Batwinghands

And now everyone, for your Peg, the-kind-hearted-Mom-who-helps-Edward-Scissorhands, moment!

Fave, “My, those are your hands? Those are your hands! What happened to you? Where are your parents? Um… Your mother? Your father? Are you alone? Do you live up here all by yourself?” Frame:

“Each year vaccinated wildlife rescuers hand rear baby flying foxes. At the end of the hand rearing process, (usually at about 13 weeks of age) the weaned babies are sent to baby bat crèche where they learn appropriate battie socialization skills. Tobermory had wing tip injuries sustained on rescue and shared the hospital aviary with several others, including 2 little guys who still required a morning bottle feed. As I searched in the bedding materials for the recipients, (weaned) Tobermory snuck over and made off with one of the bottles. I was impressed with his stealth and ingenuity and the fact he knew the bottle needed to be upended for the milk to flow. He afterwards got a bowl of warm milk for his trouble. Tobermorey is a grey headed flying fox and after his injuries were resolved, he was released back into the wild with his 60 crèche companions.”

Tee Tee Wa Dee!

Just for once could we try NOT going with the flow?

No.

Why?

TTWWADI! That’s The Way We’ve Always Done It!
