I’m a Pebble Pal and I’m OK

I sleep all night and I sit all day.
I’m the perfect pet, I never eat
You’ll have no allergies.
On Wednesdays I sit even more
Sprinklers wash over me


I knock down birds. I skip ‘cross ponds.
I like to press wild flowers.
Warm me in an oven
I’ll sit on your back for hours


I hold doors open, papers down,
I’m faithful as a clock
I’m pretty cute to look at, but
I’m dumb as a rock.


See many more Do-It-Yourself Painted Pebble Pals over at TrendSpotter Magazine. Totem-licious, Sender-Inner Tracy 😉

Let’s Give ’em Somethin’ to ‘Tock About

Turtles are tockin’, tockin’ ’bout turtles,
This one needs Shoehab, would you believe it?


And then these bunnies, doin’ one-eighty,
Try to ignore it but they keep singin’…


‘Tocks just a little too round,
‘Tocks just a little too close,


You stare just a little too long.
Maybe you’re seein’, same thin’ we do darlin’.


Let’s give ’em somethin’ to ‘tock about
(Somethin’ to ‘tock about) [stoats singing backup]
Let’s give ’em somethin’ to ‘tock about
(Somethin’ to ‘tock about) [hamsters singing backup]
Let’s give ’em somethin’ to ‘tock about
How ’bout buttoooocks?


I feel so foolish, I never noticed
Your ‘tocks are bulbous, could you be posin’ for me?
It took this website to make me wonder,
Now I’m convinced that I’m goin’ under.


Thinkin’ ’bout ’em every day,
Dreamin’ ’bout ’em every night.
I’m hopin’ that they feel the same way,
But that’s impossible—’tocks can’t have feelin’s darlin!


Let’s give ’em somethin’ to ‘tock about
(Somethin’ to ‘tock about) [frogs singing backup]
A little mystery to figure out
(Somethin’ to ‘tock about) [baby seals singing backup]
Let’s give ’em somethin’ to ‘tock about
How ’bout buttoooooooocks?


Let’s give ’em somethin’ to ‘tock about babe,
A little bee butt to figure out.
Let’s give ’em somethin’ to ‘tock about,
How ’bout buttooooooocks? Ooh…


Listen to ’em baby
(Somethin’ to ‘tock about) [frogs singing backup again]


A little tailio won’t hurt ’em
(Somethin’ to ‘tock about) [baboons singing backup]


Let’s give ’em somethin’ to ‘tock about
How about love, love, spots, and love


Whoowhoo mmmm hey oohh whoowhoo
About love, love, love, love

How about they ‘tock about it? uh huh
‘Tock about love……..


Apologies to Bonnie Raitt. Take a bow, ‘Tocktober! Excellent pic spotting, Chief Sister Officuh.

Twenty Questions

"Why can’t we fly? 

What do colors taste like? 

Where do babies come from? 

If I bite my nails, will a hand grow in my stomach? 

Why do we poop? 

Does water bounce? 

Can dogs look up? 

What would you do for a Klondike bar? 

Am I a dot?  Or am I a speck? 

When I’m underwater, do I get wet?  Or does the water get me instead? 

Did the computer invent itself? 

Where have all the flowers gone? 

Who framed Roger Rabbit? 

Where’s the beef? 

Does this look infected? 

Is there pinball in Heaven? 

Could Captain Kirk beat Han Solo in a bar fight? 

Are you now, or have you ever been …"

(Now *I* have a question: Where's the nearest orphanage?)

I donna know, Donna B.
