The Many Modes Of Piglet

From Cuteporter Abby S.: “My hedgehog, Piglet, has been extra well-behaved with the camera lately and I had to share! And of course he had to show off his 12th Man Seattle Seahawks support with his best Beast Mode face!”

It’s the Most Pun-derful Time of the Year

With the kits jingle belling,

And everyone telling you, “Be of goofy cheer.”
It’s the most pun-derful time of the year.

It’s the ham- hammiest season of all.

With those hedgehoggeh-day greetings,

And guinea peeg meetings,

When felines have a ball,

It’s the hat-hattiest season of all.

Flashback Friday

Ladies, I always pass the white glove test when I use my Mr. Scrubbalot multi-surface scrubber with fresh pinecone scent. You should too.

Benson Hedges, Private Eye! in: The Case of the Crafty Craftsman

In this racket, a roscoe and good looks only get you so far — sometimes you need a disguise. So when I staked out the shipyards, I posed as an ice cream vendor. It was a sweet deal: clear view of the wharf and all the tutti-frutti I could eat.

My client, the shipyard owner, was frantic. Told me someone was stealing his tools and putting his crew behind schedule. But when I snuck into the tool shed, the goods were all there. Somebody was toying with me — and I had to find out who.

I stowed away on a dump truck heading to the quarry. It was a soft ride, but something told me things were about to get rocky.

I was right — it was Rocky Turtullo, my old nemesis. He flippered me off, so I flattened him with a right hook. “Cut the shell games, wiseguy!” I growled.

Will Hedges crack the case? Tune in for the next chapter at, um, some point.

It’s Barnaby again, from Christine L.!

On Halloween, Watch Out for the Boogey-man
