When I started this feature it was very easy; I would simply take a few shots of Red Mr. Peanut Bank and Gallito Mescalito in strange places about the house or garden or office or church or neighborhood. Somewhere along the line dialogue was introduced, and then stories, and then EPIC SAGAS. Well, dang, it's hard to keep that kinda stuff up, especially for free. At least people who write for television or whatever get paid. I do it for love and because, as Matty Boy and anyone else who ever shared a stage with me knows, I pander to the audience.
You've all noticed the quality of this Friday Feature slowly disintegrating over the past few weeks; I've been so uninspired that I have been just a step above elephant jokes. I think I may have even stooped to "knock-knock" jokes.
Today I had a funeral for the husband of a women we buried ten weeks ago. Plus, I've been thinking about the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. today, and I'm just not feeling very funny (yes, I realize some will say "You're never very funny!"). However, as a chronic panderer, I simply can't ignore Friday Red Mr. Peanut Bank and Gallito Mescalito Blogging, so tonight we Go Behind The Scenes. Where does the cast hang out during the week? Well, the Top Stars hang out in my Study, whilst the Second String hang out in the Family Room with the Entertainment Equipment. And, of course, four of our stars are Real Live Doggy Toys, and thus, live on the floor throughout the house. I wanted to take photos of the cast in their resting places. Señorita Chompita Wiggletail is actually quite possessive of the Doggy Toys, and when she sees me wandering about the house on Fridays, looking for the cat, the gorilla, the bull, and Bunrab, the Filthiest Toy in the House, she tries to beat me to them and gather them together on her chair, where she exhibits her property rights by gnawing on them.
Maybe I'll be inspired next week.
