Friday Red Mr. Peanut Bank and Gallito Mescalito Blogging


Red Mr. Peanut Bank Well, Gallito Mescalito, it's that time of year again!
Gallito Mescalito ¡Shriek! ¿Shriek? ¡Shriek!
Red Mr. Peanut BankYes, I can understand that, the smell of roasting turkey makes you nervous, but it's only once or twice a year.
Gallito Mescalito ¡Shriek!
Red Mr. Peanut Bank Well, I don't like it that much either; all that cooking really heats up the house, and with Summer almost here it's hot enough around here!



Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love Hi boys! Up to no good, I suppose!
Red Mr. Peanut Bank Good evening, Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love. You look marvelous, as always!
Gallito Mescalito ¡Shriek!
Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love Thank you, boys; you're so sweet! Well, it's that time of year, isn't it? The days are shorter, the nights longer, the smell of burning leaves in the air, and in some places it's snowing like all get out!
Gallito Mescalito ¿Shriek?
Red Mr. Peanut Bank Yes, I agree with my loving partner; what on EARTH are you talking about?
Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love Well, not HERE, of course, but back in the ol' U.S.A. I kinda miss all that.
Gallito Mescalito ¡Shriek!
Red Mr. Peanut Bank He's right again; when we lived in the U.S. we lived in the S.F. Bay Area, where it rarely snows! But I guess the other stuff did happen. But you're from Egypt originally; I doubt you had snowy winters there!
Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love I just miss seasons! All we have here is "rainy season" and "not-quite-as-rainy season" or verano. I miss the cold.



Mr. Chompy's Chewed-up Squeaky Kitty Toy Hey dere, fellas! An' a very good evenin' ta you, Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love!
Gallito Mescalito ¡Shriek!
Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love Hello, Mr. Squeaky Cat!
Red Mr. Peanut Bank Hello, Mr. Chompy's Chewed-up Squeaky Kitty Toy!
Mr. Chompy's Chewed-up Squeaky Kitty Toy 'sup wit eveybuddy?
Red Mr. Peanut Bank We're discussing the season and the holidays.
Mr. Chompy's Chewed-up Squeaky Kitty Toy Yeah! I luvs dis tima yeah! In fact, we gots a nudder nashunal holiday next Friday! Independence from Spain Day! ¡Viva Panamá! ¡Viva Libertad!
Gallito Mescalito ¡Shriek!
Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love Well, I'm thinking of a different holiday.



Mighty Moose of Vermont, Fuzzy Southern Mountain Moose, and ¡El Penguino! Hello everybody!
The others Hello, Mighty Moose of Vermont, Fuzzy Southern Mountain Moose, and ¡El Penguino!
Red Mr. Peanut Bank Fuzzy Southern Mountain Moose, you don't look very happy? What's wrong?
Fuzzy Southern Mountain Moose Wayul, Ahm jus' feelin' a bit homesick.
¡El Penguino! She's worried about Thanksgiving. I told her it's the only estadoünidense holiday Padre and the Lovely Mona still celebrate, but she's worried it won't happen.
Mighty Moose of Vermont Come on, ¡El Penguino! You were just as worried last year. We told her it would happen but she's still worried.
Fuzzy Southern Mountain Moose Wayul, Ah've nevah been away foh such impohtant holidaze befoh.
Mr. Chompy's Chewed-up Squeaky Kitty Toy Why is dis holiday so importint' ta you guys? 'Sup wid dis?



Diablito Sucio y Wooden Kuna Doll Si. ¿Es este fiesta más importante qué la Día de Independencia de España? ¿Por qué?
Mr. Chompy's Chewed-up Squeaky Kitty Toy Yeah, I'm wunderin' 'bout dis, too. Is dis anuver one of yer Gringo "weah betteah dan you" tings?
Gallito Mescalito ¡Shriek!
Los Juegetes de los estados unidos No! It's just different!!!
Red Mr. Peanut Bank No, no, no! It's not more important than Panamanian holidays; it's just different. It is an important holiday to the Lovely Mona and Padre and their extended family and the estadoünidense toys and knick-knacks because they like the idea of taking one specific day to thank God for their many blessings, and because it is an important part of the mythology of the U.S.A., not that Padre and the Lovely Mona buy the myth (although they both have family members who are participants in the story!).
Las Jugetes Panamañas What is the myth? Tell us, TELL US!!!



Red Mr. Peanut Bank Well, it all started with the Puritans Pilgrims and their search for a land in which they could oppress others find religious freedom. . .

TO BE CONTINUED NEXT FRIDAY
Read Padre Mickey's version of the Story of the First Thanksgiving!!

I love to watch you, all of you and one of you, thinking...it´s so much fun to see where you go and what you do with things...things like the lovely Puritans and Spaniards who aledgedly had different pumpkin recipes but everything began tasting the same...Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday...my favorite of all and we´ll be entertaining quite a huge group here at wherever it is we think we are...I´m going to order a Turkey to be murdered on Monday...I try not to think about all that I/we do, but there you have it! Dear friends are brining a murdered pig...it´s going to be quite the din-din said Baby Jane Hudson as she was carving.

Egads, what have I said?

I think playing pretend with the Friday Night Dance Party Players is less tense.

Tenga un feliz Dia de Acion de Gracias!

Really, there is no way to get the Turkey gravy without the you-know-what...it´s expected.

Fa, la, la (that´s shortly afterward).

Life is good, Gracias a Dios!

Oh, my. Next week is going to be interesting, to say the least.

El Diablito Sucio is my favorite "minor" character. (There are no small roles, only small toys and action figures.) I have no control over the Friday festivities, but I think he would be great as the chief of the Native Americans.

it's margaret said...

Padre --you know the FIRST Thanksgiving was done by Drake in California decades before Jamestown or those renegades in Massachusetts....

golly.

Padre Mickey said...

It's Margaret, here in Panamá we call him "The Pirate Drake."

David |Dah • veed| said...

All former Spanish colonies know him as El Pirata Drake!

Have you seen the latest Palin video fiasco on You Tube? I will not link. They be murdering t-birds!

Jane R said...

Ooooh, this be good.

Hey, tell Fuzzy Southern Mountain Moose that her friends in the estadounidense South say "hiiyyyaaa'll!" to her.

Kirkepiscatoid said...

When do we get to the part where the Spaniards brought...um..."The French Disease"????

(oh, my little confirmation word is "mulac"--that sounds like a French food made of cows and laxative...)

Grandmère Mimi said...

Humph! To be continued. I was counting on finding out the end of the story tonight. I didn't know this was going to be a series.

Göran Koch-Swahne said...

Will be looking for the continuation!

Anonymous said...

Hmm... if the Thanksgiving story is still in development; any chance you could work in the Alice's Restaurant Massacree in somehow?

cheers from Boston - Joan (first time poster, but long-time reader)

Padre,

when yaz is tellin myths, remember to use John Ford's "Print the legend." as a rule o thumb. "Reality" is much too slippery to count on.

Happy celebrating to all youse.

I See You!
