Great Swampi Marcus 4

Marcus:  Hairy ohm to all.  I have returned -

Cyndi:  Stop right there!  Before you return, what's a hairy ohm?

Marcus:  That's Yam Aunty's greeting.   I just thought I'd borrow it today.

Cyndi:  And why would she be talking about a hairy unit of electrical resistance?

Marcus:  I have no idea, but everyone nods and smiles when she says it.

Cyndi:  Wait!  Wait!  I'm looking through her emails now.  It's not "hairy ohm".  It's "Hari om".

Marcus:  Oh, well, I was close.

Cyndi:  You weren't even close.

Marcus:  I am never wrong.  Except perhaps -  Never mind.  Frankie and Ernie asked me a very important question --  

"OH GRRRRREAAT Swampi... can you do anythingy to get this Horrid Snow Storm STELLA to stay FAR From our place? We are supposed to get 6 to 9 Inches of "IT" and we don't Want it." 

I have great news for you, Frankie and Ernie, I see that after only three long days of blowing snow and drifts, Stella will move on and will only leave you with about 7" of snow.  

Cyndi:  You call that good news?  Hold on!  You're cheating.  You got that information off of their mom's emails to Jan.

Marcus:  I said I see.  I didn't say where. And now to answer a question from our friend Loulou.

"Could you please tell me where you get those adorable turbans you wear...tres chic."

Of course.  This particular turban is one of a kind and was handmade in the magical land of stellaroselong. Despite comments about resembling a giraffe,
 when I first donned it, something magical happened.  I became The Great Swampi.

Cyndi:  I'm starting to wonder if Stella slipped a bottle of Wild Turkey in the box with it.

Marcus:  My newfound persona does not depend on intoxicants.  I possess a clear head, keen eyesight, and perfect hearing.

Cyndi:  I guess a sound mind is the only thing missing.

Marcus:  What did you say?

Cyndi:  Nothing important. 


  1. Hari OM

    Swamp-ji, your ability to lift the spirit of others is truly mag-sniffy-scent and the rest of the farmers oughtta appreciate you a little more!!! As there is an unposed query here; most folk know of 'namaste' (the divine in you is the divine in me) - 'Hari Om' goes a little deeper, the full greeting being Hari Om Tat Sat, declaring there is only that Higher Essence and there is no separation between us. Yesterday's post explores this a little differently. Pranaams Swamp-ji, hugs wags whiskeries to all in your 'ashram'!!! YAM-aunty xxx

  2. BOL you are to funny
    Lily & Edward

  3. Great Swapmi, you are very wise. Funny, but wise!

  4. Marcus, you make a very handsome Swampi! Perhaps you should charge for answering the great questions of our existence?

  5. I head that sound mind clear as a bell at my place!

  6. Oh Great Swampi, you truly know all and see all. LOL!

  7. Oh Grrrrreat Swampi.... guess WHAT... You are our HERO... the Snow is GONE... GONE .. we say... we have a Snow Free Yard... Thanks to YOU.

    BRAVO... WONDERFUL... and Just in time fur the Furst Day of Spring.
    THANK YOU Grrrrreat One.

  8. By any chance, did Stella sew catnip and/or dognip into it?

  9. Oh are a true clary-voiyant!!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  10. Can you predict lottery numbers?

  11. MOL! You certainly have a good imagination Marcus.

  12. Your prowess is swamping petcretary over with fits of giggles!!!

    We love your Swamp posts, Marcus!! Keep up the good work! You are become quite a sensation and furmouse too:)

  13. Hey, does this nice Stella person actually slip Jack Daniels into her knitting gifts? Hmmm....
    Oh, Great Swampi, soundness of mind was never really expected along with all the other attributes you appear to have. But I have another question: Can you see what THESE people find so interesting about LEAVING ME HERE for five days WITHOUT SNUGGLES FROM PAPA (mama, too, but I'm miffed at her) and what might they bring me from wherever it is they are.

  14. Great Swampi,
    We don't ever want you to retire as Mom and I both smile when we see your blog update listed in our emails.

    Thank you for all the smiles and giggles you provide.

    Molly and my Mom @The Fast and The Furriest
