Bacons Show and Tell

Hi evfurry…Bacon has asked us this month about the treat you loved the most when you were a wee sprat..

bacons-show-and-tell

So we are here to tell mumz story of her treat from when she waz not a mum..or B.U. before us MOL..so here we go…

Mum did not get lotz of treatz when she waz little..she waz a good little girl but seemed to ask too many quest-shunz an waz always lookin fur something to do..digging in the ground..climbin treez..wandering the streetz.. ..mum probably needed a leash MOL…anywho..she waz the oldest an a Virgo..so she sayz it waz just the wayz it waz..
But evfurry now an then she waz given a little money fur a treat..espeshully when the ice creamz man Mr Whippy would comez down the street wif his Gold sleeves music playin..MOL..remember mum iz so old that the milk came to the house with a milkman on a horse an cart…clip clop..
So her little earz would prick up when she heard the van…

The most exciting sight to mum
The most exciting sight to mum

Her mum or dad would be annoyed enough sometimez by her beggin that they would gives her little chubby hand 20 cents…

Looks the same now az it did then..
Looks the same now az it did then..

Now mum would haz enough for the basicz ice creamz..

Sometimes we see these in the litter tray ..MOL
Sometimes we see these in the litter tray ..MOL

But the variety waz very impurresive..

Yumm

Anywho mum can remember the LAST time she had a ice cream az a little sprat from the Mr Whippy..

She had lost her 20centz in the garden..she was playing an waitin fur him and she lost it..she could not find it anywhere.she crawled in all the bushes on handz an kneez..nothing..she went an told her mum an it waz too bad..all this over 20 centz..mum waz furry upset..she went and hid in the bushes to sulk az the vanz went sailin by..

But…she hid in this bush..

Oleander

Well one of the leafz cut mumz ear..wiffin a week she waz a furry sick girl..she got a sore on her ear..which gotz a blister..which burst..then another came up..the Dr came out an took a samplez to send to the CSIRO science peeps..mum got sicker..the Dr came back again..he gave her some anti-peeoticz..mum swelled up like Veruca Salt in Willy Wonkas story..

Thiz time the Dr was scared..her pawrentz wanted her in hospital..but the Dr didn’t coz he had let it go too long…so mum ended up with sores that formed a whole mask on her face and through her hair..even her own mum would not come in an check in the morning in case she waz dead…crikey..mum could not smilez her face would split and weep..her eyes were glued shut evfurry morning..it waz terrible..she eventually got better after a furry furry long timez…today even she still getz weepy and sore behind that same ear..in fact she haz had a sore eaz for two weekz nasty plant that onez!…so that waz mumz last memory of Mr Whippy…she maybe wishes he would melt..but she sayz the ice-creamz were delish!!

Melt Mr Whippy......
Melt Mr Whippy……

Paw pats and thanks Bacon fur a great bloggie hop..Cleo ..and I forgotz to say…When is Savvy goin to share her secretz!!

  1. My goodness what a tale that is! The oleander is a very BAD and SCARY plant even if it is pretty to look at. So glad your Mum EVENTUALLY got alright…..My Mom remembers the ice cream truck coming through the neighborhood ringing a bell – these days they have electronic music playing – NOT QUITE the same “mood” !!

    Hugs, Sammy

  2. That started out as a lovely story and turned into a very scary one!!! What a dreadful plant that appears to be so pretty. I think I would not longer be able to eat ice cream because of the association. Well maybe πŸ™‚

  3. how sad that your mom was so sick from that darned plant… and I’m so sorry that she lost the 20 cents…. even when she would get an ice cream today (if you have one in your litter box) it wouldn’t be the same…as the one she missed as a little girl. btw: my mom is the same pitch bird, she gave the 50 cent (the price of ice cream is inflationary, huh?) to the girl with the two geese what stands on a well, because that poor statue was so alone the whole time …

  5. Wow, that is so scary, and kind of takes away the good memories of the ice cream truck! I hope your Mom still likes ice cream after all that. I have heard of that flower, and it is so pretty, but I didn’t know it was so poisonous. I used to have allergic reactions to poison ivy when I was a child, I would be covered in it, but it never got quite that bad, luckily for me.

  9. We called the ice cream man the “ding ding” man because he had a bell he rang. They still come around here in our town with the same bell ringing and my favorite is the “bombpop” which is frozen ice in 3 flavors on one stick. So glad your Mum survived the Oleander poisoning!
