Catchin' Up

Hey, Y'all:

I wanna apologize fer my absence in the past month. There's been a HAIL of a lotta stuff goin' on but first an' foremost, I am sendin' my love up tuh my gal, Payton, who went tuh the Bridge. She was the pertiest, strongest gal I ever laid eyes on. Just wish I woulda had the chance tuh make 'er my own.

'Til we meet again, honey.

Now the last time I got on my blog machine, that Pebbles gal was about tuh meet some folks that might wanna adopt 'er. Well, fer whutever reason, they thought she was the bee's knees an' they took 'er home that very day! Here she is with 'er new folks an' brother, Tuck.

So not long after Pebbles hit the road, my mom up an' went tuh ENGLAND. (Can you buhlieve she din't take me with 'er??) Anyhoo, I spent the week with Ms. Liz an' JoeJack an' Ivan. It was all fine an' dandy 'til Ivan (the hot head German Shorthaired Pointer) got all hot in the butt 'cause I got a hold of his soup bone. Lousy way tuh treat a guest if ya ass ME. It went a little something like this:


Well, he got me in the eyeball. Yep. (Thank GAWD it was my BAD eye!) So Ms. Liz had tuh run me tuh the hospital an' they done surgery on it. An' if THAT wasn't bad enough my mom was acrosst the pond, drinkin' 'er tea, an' wanderin' the streets o' London - not with ME like she shoulda been.

Dad an' Ms. Liz duhcided not tuh tell 'er til she got home. I, fer one, wanted tuh guilt 'er intuh comin' home but Dad said some BS 'bout not wantin' tuh ruin 'er trip. PFFFFFT! Oh, well, I finally fergave the old gal an' I healed up real good. All's well that ends well I tell ya what.

Just as I'm gittin' back in my routine, Mom hauls another foster kid intuh the house!! This one's name is Rocky. It oughtta be STOCKY....kid could stand tuh lose a pound er' two.

Now this kid's not toooo bad but he's a lot bigger an' younger than me. I've had tuh chew 'im out a couple o' times fer gettin' too rough (an' threaten 'im with some o' the hand-tuh-hand combat I learned in 'Nam).

I think I'm gittin' 'im perty well under control. At least he's figgerin' out who gits the best seat in the house!

Yep. Mmhmm.

Oh Hanklin! It's good to have you back in bloggyland! You sure have been through a lot of changes! I'm sorry you had such trouble with your eye, but yeah, good thing it was your bad one anyway. And Rocky, well, yeah, he is a bit stocky now isn't he! Heehee! I guess that just means all the PBR are for you (well they are anyway now don't ya think?) since Stocky, erm, um, Rocky could use to drop a few pounds (the weight kind, not the kind your mom dropped in London). You're showing him the ropes pretty darn good there, Hank. After all, the Hanklin needs some respect!! I tell ya what!

Hi Hanky
oh its so good to hear from you!
I knew you would be so upset about Payton. All of blogville has been very sad about her leaving so soon.
But we know she has loving friends at the Bridge- and being an angel now, she must be very busy.
Gosh your eyes got all beat up and your momma was gone, and wow-- too much to even remember.
The main thing is that you are okay- your eye is okay and your mom is home, and we heard from you!
I missed you.

For God's sake Hank, don't let Stocky, er Rocky, sit on you! Your eye would be the least of your concerns then!

Sorry about that eye, buddy, but sounds to me your temp rents were looking out for you properly.

Payton will always be keeping an eye on you buddy and no doubt will be waiting at the bridge at the proper time, Hank. Nice to see you back in bloggerville, pal!

Whoa! There sure has been a lot going on in your life. Sorry to hear about your eyeball and that your mom was having a jolly old time in London WITHOUT you. Parents should NOT be allowed to go on vacation without us.

And boy, we hadn't realized you were in Nam?! Holy smokes! You're older than we thought!

Pug love from,

Hanklin, my goodness, that ol' Pointer gave you the business. Little hot under the collar if you ask me. Glad you healed up all nice anyway. Whew doggy, I bet your Mom was upset to hear about your eye. You can now use this whole eye incident excuse for years of guilt. Seems like you have Rocky pretty well under control. That feller could be a line-backer.

Wow, I can't believe your mom would just go away without you. It's really hard to train humans, they're slow.

My name is Oskar & I'd like to invite you to be featured on my blog at It's a great way to meet new blogging friends. If you're interested you can drop me a line at PBU at comcast dot net.

Nubbin wiggles,
