Say hello to my friend!

I had a visitor today!

Now let me explain. I have a friend on a bulletin board who, for a long time, would take pictures of Gumby having adventures while she took her morning walks (it helped make her walks tolerable and she entertained us a LOT.)

Anyway, several folks started picking up toys which would take "adventures" too. One such friend was a pink plastic "Mr. Bubbles." He has taken some lengthy trips, even going to Hawaii, Vegas and the Philippines.

Somewhere along the line, Gumby went missing. Now we know why he hasn't been taking walks with my friend in Maryland lately -- he's been doing a cross-country trek! To see ME!

Say hello to my little friend ... Gumby!!

He was very hungry by the time he got here, so he started helping me stir the glaze for the pork roast I was fixing.

He took a good look at the roast after it had been cooking for a while.

Needs some more glaze, he says.

Let's put it back in the oven, OK? Gumby is concerned for safety, so he put on his protective gear first.

OK, we can relax for a little while. How about a beverage?

Maybe a snack? How about some grapes?

Or perhaps cherries, since we're having a cherry glaze on the roast?

Let's see... what shall we have as a side dish? Gumby's checking out potato recipes. There's one he likes!

Gumby's auditioning to be my spokesmodel when I open my business this week, selling knives. Here's a fine knife for helping prepare dinner. Be very careful of the sharp edge!

Gumby has dishes to wash now, and then I think he'll probably be heading to bed after a long day of traveling and cooking. I hope you enjoyed today's visit!

Wow, it's nice to see him turn up again. We'll have to make sure Maresy knows where to visit him at now.

You are SUCH a hoot. ... Um, just how busy are you gonna be peddlin' knives? (Gulp).

Fear not, thepress. There's no conflict, at least not at this time!

Yeah, fladnag, Maresy actually got to meet up with Bas this weekend! So I thought it was time for Gumby to have another adventure since she's jilted him! LOL!

Perhaps Gumby would like a trip to sunny California? How is he at unpacking? ;)

Trixie said...

Well, you can see that his physical abilities are pretty limited, but if you don't mind him moving one straw at a time for you, I'm sure he would LOVE to help!

ANY help would be fine! :)
