A New Friend

This just in! Fred and Bessie are leaving upstate New York and the ever hospitable home of Dlyn, headed to Connecticut! Check out their' departure!

*achoo*
Excuse me while I mouth-breathe for a bit.

Since I'm still sick, and still scanning pictures (thanks for the heads up, Mom. Two years - really?), I'm simply going to introduce you all to our new family friend, Pete. Bloggy internets, say hello to Pete.


Isn't he handsome? And you single ladies, he's available. He also gets along well with kids, you single moms.


Oop! But he doesn't like to share his chips. Here's a better example of his tolerance for children

See? Little Guy is torturing him and he handles it beautifully.


See how chummy they are? They even have the same smile. I love Pirate Pete.

A big thank you to Grandma, who so kindly provided today's entertainment. She works for Frito and brought Pete home for us. Little Guy finished blowing him up this morning at breakfast then left him by the front door. I wish I'd had the camera ready when the Hunny came in from his morning walk and jumped two feet. And again when he came home for lunch and jumped. But especially when Maybelline came in from school and started screaming at him. Dang. That's what I get for being sick. Not prepared.

Y'all, thanks for your well wishes. I'm feeling better today. It should be reduced to a mere sniffle tomorrow.

Until I write again ...

Can Pete come on a tour of Mayberry?

Law Student Hot Mama said...

He's HAWT!

I just want to know why he only has one shoe . . or maybe I don't want to know.

I miss your cows.
About the apple trees, I guess you just eat the apples , unless you are one of those people who make apple pies and/or applesauce. :)
Feel better soon.

Tanya Brown said...

LOL! Fun all around.

Um, I hate to ask this indiscreet question, but where is Pete's air valve? Anywhere interesting?

LaskiGal said...

Glad to hear you are feeling better.

I want one of my very own Frito Pete. So, he's available, eh?

Mental P Mama said...

Pete looks like he could spare an eyebrow or two. Just sayin'. Cannot wait for my company to arrive!

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

Hope you are feeling 100% by now!

Marguerite said...

Aw man! I would have loved to see those pics!

Mom is awesome. :D

Get well soon.

What would have been funnier is if you had VIDEOTAPED them coming through the door and being scared out of their pants by creepy looking Pete!!

April said...

Oh, and I too was wondering why he only had on one shoe?

Coffee Bean said...

Awwwww... get better soon little Flea!

That pirate is creepy. I don't care if he eats potato chips.

Trisha said...

Too funny! I can imagine that Pete startled a few people hanging out in your entryway!

Way to go Grandma for the present!

dlyn said...

Well, he is just lovely! You can make him your "inspiration piece" for a re-decoration project in the dining room!

Candace said...

LOL So how did the dogs react? I'm sure he would make quite the impression here too. So sad that you were not up to par and ready for pictures. Our puppy (1 year old puppy, but 100% puppy all the same) would think he was her newest extra large size chew toy.

Both my husband and MIL work in the medical field and we get all sorts of things from them. But I can honestly say we've never had an inflatable doll.

Poltzie said...

Heh, I like him - too fun!!
ps. I think I got your cold :(
