I'm BACK!!!

See... I have lots of nice cabbages and Tomatoes... and the hard rains haven't hurt them any... SO FAR... Yes, this cabbage will be ready to Pick in about a week... I make those impawtant decisions.

Now... fur the furst time ever... we are havin troubles with BIRDS and RABBITS in the garden soooooo I said to My CRAZY DAD I want you to make a Scarecrow thingy... and of course, he always does what I tell him to do..... BUTT who would EVER have thought that he would do THIS::::V









How in the world do you suppose THIS was supposed to scare ANYTHINGY???? It's

CAMO..... for crying out loud...

YEP.... CAMO... The man is NUTS!!

THIS is the BACK SIDE;..... guess WHAT??????????? It's CAMO TOO !!!!

Boy did we have a fun time... my (Deformed sister.. the one with no nose Short Ears and only two legs and NOT TAIL.. Lori/Sarge's mom) Sister Lori and her husband were here.. and we went to AMISH COUNTRY and I got to shop in some stores and stuffs... and it was a FUN day beclaws I made them stop at the CHEESE FACTORY.. and FILL the Cooler up. And we had a Super Duper Picnic in this really cool place... I will show you some pic of the Grrreat time we had there..

And then the Next day we went to see my Furend Alan Cottrill's Sculpture Studio and he was actually there Sculpting and we had a grrrreat visit with him.. I'll show you some pics of that in a day or so too.

I'll bet Sarge is glad to have his mom and dad back home.. I am sure he did a lot of impawtant police work and stuffs.. butt mostly I guess he missed THEM.

That is gonna make some mighty fine cole slaw! And I think the camo man is SCAWY myself!

Minna Krebs said...

A very most BEAUTIFUL garden Frankie! You and your dad have done a super job

Butt, I'm not sure bout that camo scarecrow.....since its camouflage....how do da birds and bunnies know that it is there?!?!?

Minna Krebs said...

PeeS.....sounds like a pawsome weekend you all had! Butt poor Sarge. I bet he was all filled with da jellinous since he had to stay home

♥Mona + Weenie + Mommy, too♥ said...

Hi Frankie,

Weenie here...Baby Girl went home Saturday and Mommy is already missing her but I think it's nice to have her lap all to myself again. Sissy is always so busy looking out the window on her chair so Mommy's is all mine now.

We just caught up on all your posts we've missed because Mommy has just been too tired, but that's just cause she'd old as dirt.

We have had lots of problems with blogger too. We couldn't load pictures a month or so ago. What really pisses Mommy off is she that we can't leave commnets on any blog that asked for a word verification. She could just pull what little bit of hair she has left out.

The garden looks fantastic. Mommy makes cabbage, radishes and sausage together in a skillet with a dixie cup of water. It is yummylicious but she can't find any cabbages as pretty as yours.

{{{huggies}}}....Mona & Weenie

We think he scarecrow is inspired! and the cabbage too, of course.


Sarge said...

Hey Frankie!
Wow, my peeps had an amazing visit with you, Mamaw and Papaw Pantslegs! I was working undercover again in the doggy slammer. Boy, I was glad to get back home. I heard you went to those cool places and I admit I got a small snack bite of that great cheese! I think maybe that scarecrow will work afterall...it looks a whole lot like a big, bad hunter! That should scare the critters!! BOL BWAR HAR HAR
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

STELLA from Down Under said...

Frankie, garden is looking so good. We actually have a good garden this year as well. No groundhogs eating it this year. Mom said she got one of those solor powered gadgets that sticks in the ground. It sends a sound off that keeps all them pesky critters away, and it really works good. We got ours at Tractor Supply and it was well worth the $20 to safe the garden. We are canning green beans this week. Yahoo. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! Wow your vegetables looking good ... Sure is ready to harvest. What do you plan to do. Its good thing no damaged from the storms we are having lately. We had one yesterday n we have no power ( Lots of trees fell on the power line.) We got our our handy portable compad to keep us updated on what,s going on. Enjoy, your day! Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar.

Julia Williams said...

What a fabulous garden you have!! Your tomatoes are three times the size of mine.

scotsmad said...

It might scare crows.....but what about rabbits and other birds!

Your garden looks terrific!

Thanks you soooooo much for the People Crackers. As soon as we saw them, we remembered when you got some. SHE's making us 'go easy' on them. We're getting TWO when we go to bed and SHE's going to save the packet. Thanks again.

mr. frankie!

your trip sounded totally awesome!! did you take any pics of the cooler full of cheeses?? mmmmmm! miss mayzie's gonna go nuts when she reads about that. teehee.
your cabbages are lookin' hooge 'n yummy yummers!! i know your daddy's scarecrow might be kinda hard to see, but he's still scary lookin' to me!! maybe it'll be even more scary for the birdies 'n bunnies cuz they won't see mr. scarecrow until they are like right on top of him, and then they will pee their pants cuz they'll be so scared, and they will nevarrr evarrr steal your veggies 'n fruits again!!

sprinkles said...

Wow, thats a LOT of cabbage! AND, that cabbage is bigger than you are!!!

I couldn't see your dad's scarecrow 'cause it's camo. If I can't see it, how will the birds? bol

The Amish fascinate me. I'd love to shop in their stores and stuffs. Can't wait for your pix for that.

Schnauzer Days said...

Hiya Frankie! What a great Scaredy Crow - it actually looks like a bird from a distance so the birds may think it is actually a giant crow!
Sounds like you had a great time with Sarge's Mom and Co - how fantastic to visit the Amish, we've just watched a series on tv with the Peeps all about them and loved it although Louis growled at the horses clip clopping.
Have a good week Frankie, Dex and Lou xxx

Three Dogs Long said...

Very cool garden pics....and that is rather a pathetic scarecrow....if we say so ourselves!

We have a "scare dachshund" in our garden.....stay tuned for pics on our blog!

Sagira said...

Sounds like you have been having a great time Frankie. Did the storms hit your area last night? We didn't have power from like 3 until 7 last night. It was crazy. Luckily the rain made it cooler with no ac for a few hours.

That garden sure is looking nice. That camo friend of yours is kind of funny.

I wish you lived a little closer. There is a Picnic with the Pups this Saturday evening from 4 until 8 at CHA Animal Shelter. It is fun we get to do tricks and costume contest and bands playing, etc.

Mr. Pip said...

Thank goodness you are back! THings just haven't been the same without you!

That's one heck of a garden. How does your mom manage that all by herself? I bet you are a big help!

Your pal, Pip

P.S.: Bawhahaha, just read Minna's comment abut the scarecrow.

Anonymous said...

Hi ya Frankie! Wow has your garden gone bonkers or what?! You could feed a family of giants with all that great stuff! :D And that is the strangest scarecrow I've ever seen. Made me think of a mutant screamer/bat dressed in camo thingy. Actually it's pretty spooky looking. Hope the bunnies and birds think so :)

Waggin at ya,
