not the bird flu

not the bird flu

...it's me - mo's cousin jo - the pretty one...probably the more talented one too but you wouldn't know that since i don't feel the need to show off on the worldwideweb daily. i like showin off in person myself...but i didn't come here to yakityak about myself this time - altho i know you wish i had! i tell mo all the time she should have let me be the figurehead of the mo monarchy but she says i need to get more doo dads under my belt before mouthin off like i am the better doo dad dispenser... i think when i finally am able to share my talents with the worldwideweb i'll have ta call em jo's jewels so they won't get confused with mo's doo dads...altho if they are as fabulous as those roses i made outta my squirrel eaten pink sponge rollers there will be no way they'll get mistaken for anything but mine!

oops...sorry...i get so excited when i take over the steerin wheel of the blog that i forget why i came in the first place. i'll try to stick to the point...which is...mo is sick. the sort of sick where the house could be taken over by aliens or ME and she could care less cause she feels too bad to open her eyes to rescue mini, gigi, tink or mini's daddy. i am not sure what the ailment that has taken hold of her is but i have an idea. and it's not cause she works all the time doin doo dads and dealin with mini's doins and keepin mini's daddy from drivin us dottie and if not any of those, doin good deeds for anyone who deserves em ( i didn't add myself to that list cause i only enhance her daily life and am in no way a drain on her energy)...all that could probably make someone develop a deadly disease but not mo. no...i do believe she is debilitated due to some dire flu.

i don't think it's that bird flu. i don't even think i believe in the bird flu just yet. i mean....it seems the only time we hear alot about that bird flu is when that o junior who has been misplaced in the white house finds himself in hot water and thinks he can divert our t.v. watchin minds from the misdeed du jour and the best way he knows to do it is to make us think there is a deadly disease flappin it's way to a sky near us any minute. i mean....thanks to junior's direct underling, dickie, we KNOW the crazy group runnin the country HATES birds. in fact, i'm of the mind that the reason, while tryin to kill some of the dangerous flyin creatures, he turned and shot his shootin partner is that the shootin partner discovered this bird flu plot and threatened to expose the whole thing and in a panic he just shot him before givin the whole thing much thought.

plus, we have seen over and over again that neither junior or dickie can be trusted to tell the truth....so...why wouldn't they lie about cute feathery creatures turnin into deadly flu carryin vehicles? i am not sure how this bird badmouthin ties into all their other schemes but it'll come out sooner or later...unfortunately most all their dumb deeds come out LATER. i do believe, though, i read somewhere once that when junior was a lil boy he was almost scared to death stayin up late, watchin t.v., and endin up watchin hitchcock's 'the birds' on the midnight matinee. maybe that's the simple answer to his hatred of birds but whatever it is, mo doesn't have the bird flu.

now...she may have some form of squirrel sickness though. we have had quite a time lately with that tracy squirrel livin above the doo dad den. tracy squirrel now has a batch of mean lil toddler squirrels that she sends out scurryin all over the property to gather things for her. they plum ate my pink sponge rollers to bits and ran off with my bright red cover girl lipstick. then one o the housekeepers told us that when she walks up the driveway toward the house to come to work, at least one of those squirrels jumps up on her and hangs on for dear life and won't let go til she gives it all her change. she has since said she will not be doin any duties that require her to leave the house and makes someone drive her up and down to the street each day. i made her walk up one more time just to prove this unbelievable story to me and was able to snap a shot of it. i had to donate the change to give the squirrel for her to do it though.

but the worst incident so far happened right when i was takin this picture of mo and is when i think mo mighta caught some sorta squirrel sickness. we were gonna take some pictures of the bisque eggs for includin in the directions to make em - the ones mo posted the other day - so we took em outside to lay em in the grass for a more realistic montage. and right when i was shootin the shot here of mo doin the egg placin, outta nowhere one of those tracy squirrel toddlers came barrelin toward mo, grabbed the bisque egg and took off. in all the melee seems he made a little scratch on mo's hand.

don't get me wrong - i am not tryin to follow junior and dickie's seemingly diabolical deed in disaster creatin by makin it seem all squirrels are bad or will make you sick. but just so happens that change payin housekeeper called in sick the last couple o days - says she has some sort of flu. maybe it is just a co-inka-dink that she and mo are both sick and were both victims of the squirrelly antics here in moland but it's worth considerin!

anyway...that's it. just wanted you to know mo hadn't abandoned this here blog or any of ya'll who have written her...she'll be back as soon as she feels better. until then i may just hafta keep doin the blog steerin myself. maybe tomorrow i'll hafta show you the eggs i have been paintin up for the kids while mo is out flat. she would never ask me to of course but i thought i'd help where i can. i must admit i'm pretty good at the egg paintin thing and think you'll wanna do some like mine too. so unless i get lots of comments left here askin me to stay away, i'll do just that.

thanks for stoppin by to see what's up here in moland...hope you aren't too disappointed at findin me, jo - the pretty one - here 'stead of mo!

Jo, I'm never disappointed to find you at the steerin' wheel, posting layouts in the gallery, or haulin' the airstream down the doo dad superhighway. Show us those eggs! --Pam (wings)

Well jo, you are obviously a steadfast help to mo...and talking about those squirrels..I'm watching them chase each other through my woods right now...obviously one stole an acorn from the other and the hype is on!

I hope that mo can get this ick out of her in the most healthy of fashions and get her mo-jo (LOL) back up and running! I wish you all the happiest thoughts for the upcoming weekend festivities hope your egg hunting is a blast.

Thanks jo for taking over for mo and keeping us in the loop! The best to you all...

I am a happy camper that you took the time to tell us how Mo is doing. I was getting pretty worried about her... just seems gettin' sick is happenin' too often for our sweet doodad keeper and designer.
You tell her to have a sweet Easter and hopin' she gets well real soon and thank you Jo for bloggin' for her as this is our community in moland and you are a big part of it, with that silver stream and all. now, let's see what you can do with the eggs...

Awww... poor MO! We've had the yucky stuff around our paytonplace, so I sympathize :)

PS - Cool that you made www.birdflubreakingnews.com, JO! Another great blog to your credit :)

Jo, we are always happy to hear from you. I hope Mo gets better soon. It seems she always has too many eggs in her busket. Hope she gets a little RR while recovering.

best to you both,

It's always great to hear from you Jo. I hope Mo is feeling better - if she isn't get her to a doctor.

Squirrels "are" rodents - and probably carry all sorts of nasty germs.

Michelle said...

I am a regular reader of Mo's blog but won't be any more. I know I will get flack and all of Mo's sycophants will talk about how evil I am but this used to be an entertaining place where one could come to avoid all of the ugliness in the world until it became a 'political statement' blog.

If you really think that bird flu is a 'conspiracy' by the White House, then this country has more to be afraid of than I had previously believed.

Maybe the blog-writing should have been left to Mo.

Kpbrutcher of A Digi Memory said...

Dearest JO, always glad to hear from you. I see from the photo above that Mo was a squirrel sympathizer as a child and that is probably why she has such a hard time dealing with that crazy Tracy squirrel and her little crumb snatchers. You got to get her straight. I can't wait to see your eggs....I am sure they really are the jewels of the egg hunt. ;)

michelle said...

in response to the comment left by the now to be referred to as the 'missin michelle'...i am sorry you have been so offended at jo's attempt to bring a little levity to 'the ugliness in the world'...but i guess the end result is for the better. anyone who would actually let themselves be upset by the humor included here on mo's blog, believe that jo really believes there is a conspiracy and most importantly, would use the word sycophants to refer to me or any of mo's friends doesn't belong here anyway! but then, you are entitled to your opinion and the mean spirit in which you choose to express it. us sycophants will be happy for you to do so elsewhere from now on and i will be happy to be possibly the only michelle!

Jan said...

Wow...that squirrel sickness certainly sounds like some form of dreaded scourge...and squirrel solicitation (panhandling)?? where, oh, where are they spending their scratch?? and are we going to see a set of specialized squirrelly salvaged scrap from Mo (when she recovers from the squirrelly scratch)?

Jo, your bloggin has left more questions than answers. :-) Fine work! I'm expecting another installment soon, though! Do put Dirk on the case!

Jan said...

oh, and let's just send that whole lot of squirrels to washington -- I think the White House has earned 'em, don't you? :-D

ejj said...

I'm so sorry to hear about the flu but impressed that Mo's blog has been picked up by bird flu experts. Also, I'm amazed that Jo's blog could have been taken seriously enough to offend anyone--but some people are just humorless these days, espec when they hear that politicians sometimes TELL LIES....

homeschooler said...

I'm sorry you are sick Mo. I am also sorry, saddened, kinda sick at heart really, that my fave ever ever all time artist speaks publicly so disrespectfully of my favorite ever ever all time President of the United States of America. I'm just kinda sad and a little let down. The first time or two I kinda ignored it, but by now I'm really just pretty blue. Still, I wish you well and health and happiness...

Get well soonest, Mo! xoxo

Hi jo/ mo,
thanks for keeping the home fires burning while our dearest mo is recuperating from her dreaded lurgi. Seems there is lot of it about.

Can't believe the antics of that pesky Tracey and her mischeivious offspring....I think you need to lock up everything in sight....before you know it Tracey will be off with your knickers and parading them round the the town! HOw on earth would you explain that to Dirk....could be a great story in the making!
I enjoy your humerous blogs enormously and am delighted that you are keeping us entertained ...... thanks Jo.

Keep an eye on those pesky varmits while mo is resting up.....don't want them running off with the oh so precious doodads while she has her peepers closed. heaps hugs ....keep those blogs coming!

Great to hear from you Jo -- looking forward to seeing your egg work! Get well dear Mo. I can tell you from experience that this is one nasty flu (or squirrel sepsis) that is going around. I only hope that you are feeling better soon before Jo turns the place into a 24 hour Bingo Parlor and Trailer Park. In the mean time, I'd suggest that everyone carry some pepper spray in their holsters to keep those 'Tracy Squirrels' at bay. Good luck!

Tammy (drewsmama) said...

WOOHOO! Jo's blogging now! I was sorry to see that squirrel get into your rollers and aquanet, but she (has to be a she with that do she's sporting!) has also absconded with my red hair dye. What are we going to do. And I too am impressed that you got picked up by the birdflu syndicate! We're in high cotton now!

Pamela said...

Great blog entry! Thanks for injecting some humor in a frequently humorless world. Just ignore those that don't get it. They have been watching too much Fox news. Wait a minute -- a fox looks an awful lot like a squirrel. Coincidence? I don't think so! Maybe we need to look into a possible fox/squirrel conspiricy???

Missy Brenda said...

Hi Jo,I hope Mo gets back to being herself sometime soon,And I can't wait to see your egg painting.

Jo - of course we love you too! I thought I signed up for the instructions for the egg and can paintin, but I haven't gotten anything yet. Can you PLEASE send them to me. Noelle

Sheila said...

Thanks for the chuckles Jo. Get well soon Mo! XOXOXO

Robin said...

bring on the jegg-centric eggs!
hope you are well soon mo. tracy has been usin' the excuse of bein' "sick with this nasty flu" for about 2 weeks now in order to shirk her daily responsibilities. so i figure you have about 10 more days comin' before we are on to the ploy of fakin' squirrel sepsis. in the meantime wring as much as you can outa the experience as far as acceptin' pretty gifts, food treats brought to the house and jo offerin' to take over the blog to entertain us for a spell. good luck with killin' off those itty bitty baby tracy squirrels.

Ruthann said...

New-kid here...I have been SO entertained by the site, the blog,and the members! I love the personalities,the intelligent and funny blog-postings, (no matter who posts,lol!)and the creative,friendly, spirit that prevails here...we have some rather insane and tame squirels here at the ranch and I'm lovin' that they get "air-time" in Moland!Sure hope the "cooties" will leave everyone alone soon and all will be feelin' well!

Hey Jo,
I love your humor. You and Mo are making my day. I think I missed the "Conspiracy theory" but I heard it was a good movie. I think my new pup may have that bird flu, he is making sounds that sound like a chicken.
I hope Mo gets well pretty quick.
Congradulations on you blog entry. I enjoyed reading it.
Huggers,

Christine Fiddlette said...

Dear Jo...

Your blog writing is fun to read too...maybe you should do your own blog!! We could read it right alongside Mos!! Tee hee!

Please tell Missy Mo that I am so sorry to hear she is still sick.. This thing that is going around in the LA area is AWFUL...and I've got it, now, too...I hope she is gettin plenty of rest, and plenty of help!! Hugs!!

(And you should pay no heed to the wierd girl up above who freaked out over a little joke!! some people just have no sense of humor!!)

Hello from england, I'm just catching up on this blog and I love it!

I just had to comment here, I wouldnt be surprsied at anything junior and dickie got up to, and especially so when they have little 'tone' to aid and abet.

Cant believe those people who took offence at this and I agree with michelle-who-is-not-missing that those sort of people dont belong here - in fact I'm not sure where they do belong!!

forgive me for mentionnig this, but isn't there something in the american constitution about freedom of speech??

I also had to laugh that the bird flu site found your comments controversial!! as compared to what????? I spose these people dont spend much time on the internet or they would maybe see what controversial really is!
