Da Tabbies Flaky Flounder
Rusty: Well, here we are again. What's on the agenda for today?
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 ----
"TROUT, SALMON, PERCH, SEA BASS, FLOUNDER, BURGERS, FRIEZ, HAM, BACON, WHITEFISH, TUNIE, SOLE, SGHETTI, PORK CHOPS, DONUTS, PIE, CAKE, TROUT, COD, ROAST, PIZZA, CHEEZE, COCONUT OIL, AND TROUT;"
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.
