Da Tabbies Flaky Flounder

Rusty:  Well, here we are again.  What's on the agenda for today?

Micah:  Flounder.

Rusty:  Do you mean we're floundering or we're fishing?

Micah:  Fishing.  But first we want to update a post from last Thursday. (Buddy and Merci Trees )

Rusty:  Jan and the dogs checked out the trees after last Saturday's frightening storm.

Micah:  The Merci tree shed small branches around a pretty good sized area of the ground but despite standing alone without cover, it still stands tall. 

Rusty:  The Buddy tree also made a big mess, mainly in the road, but it too endured.

Micah:  Just like our two older siblings, one of these days those trees will fall or be cut down.  Meanwhile, they endure.

Rusty:  Da Tabbies O Trout Towne left a request to be compared to a tree.  "dood....we think yur ann nal ogeez iz awesum....we wood likez ta bee compared ta one oh yur treez!!"

Micah:  We asked Jan if she could find us a tree for Da Tabbies and she said they are well-known for their grilled fish.  In fact, their favorite foods are  ----


Did we really expect her to find a tree that reminded her of fish?

Rusty:  Of course we did!  Then she walked the dogs and the first thing she noticed was a flounder tree.

Micah:  We think she needs glasses for more than reading but she insists it's a flounder tree.  

Rusty:  She hasn't had flounder in centuries -

Micah:  Decades, Rusty.  Don't say "centuries" around Jan.

Rusty:  In decades.  It was flaky and -

Micah:  Are you calling Da Tabbies "flaky"?

Rusty:  A little.  Dipped in batter and fried with fresh lemon and tartar sauce, flounder was the only item on the restaurant menu she would order.  She loved it!

Micah:  Oh, you mean our friends Da Tabbies have to be a bit flaky - as in unconventional - to be who they are and that's what we all love about them?

Rusty:  Exactly!  When Jan ate at a particular restaurant, she knew flounder would be on the menu.

Micah:  And when anything is going on around the pet blogs, we all know Da Tabbies will be there to leave a kind word, or make us smile, or lend a helping paw.

Rusty:  You know they would be a lot happier if Jan had seen a trout tree.

Micah:  I know, but flounder is fish so I don't think they'll mind.

We are joining the Pet Parade hosted by Rascal and Rocco, Basil the Bionic Cat, Barking from the Bayou and Owned by a husky.

  3. All dat talk bout flounder made me hungry!

  4. Guess what I got to eat today? A piece of teriyaki salmon that ghostwriter had for lunch! Yummmmmmmy!

  5. We hate to disagree with you.. butt this time we agree that Miss Jan did a good job of finding a FISH tree... that one DOES look like a Flounder..

  6. Purrseidon would rather have a fish than a tree-fish, though she does wonder if it might be good for climbing.

  8. Trees are amazing things; do you know that they communicate with each other, and work together to repel insect invasions? It would be nice if fish grew on trees!

  9. OH, mama hasn't had flounder in LOVES flounder and that tree IS a flounder tree, no question. Who are Da Tabbys? Did I miss something?

  10. Well it's good dat all da trees still stand. We quite furankly would be happy ifin a few less 'round here stood. We have a yard full of oaks and dat means we have a porch full of dead leaves and scorpion hidin' spots. Mommy can't stand either. MOL Hope ya'll have a great weekend. Big hugs

    Luv ya'

    Dezi and Raena

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  14. Holy carp! A flounder tree! I didn't think I'd ever see another one of those. Thank you!

  15. I love the Flounder tree! I hope that your weather is much better this weekend. Thanks for Pet Parading. ☺

  16. And I thought only cats see fish in everything they see ')

  17. I've never thought about looking for a tree that looks like a fish but if I ever find one I'll be sure to let everyone know!!

  18. Hooray that those trees endured yet another weather battering. We had some high wnds here...and after all the rain we have been endurng...well, that wind pushed one tree in our woodsy part of the yard right over. Sheesh! At least it fell in the an area not where there are fences or the shed. Then petcrtary found another huge branch that came down as well, but once again only in the woodsy area...not near the fence or the shed. Just a big mess, and a chain saw shoul help clear it away so dog-guy can run freely back there later int he springtieme.

    You for sure have a delicious Flounder Tree!
