The Merry Old Land Of Oz

Did Kali and I mention that Smokey was back?  We may not have even mentioned that he ever left.   He was gone for about three months while his mom (my daughter) was living somewhere else.  Smokey decided he missed Kali too much so he moved back in and brought my daughter with him.  Yes parents of adult children, you know how that one goes….  😉

Upon his arrival he gave Kali the once over and decided she was a mess and needed a little grooming which he would do himself.   It looked a bit like the scene in the Wizard of Oz when Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and the cowardly lion finally make it to the Emerald City.  Upon entering the city and stating their desire to meet with the great Wizard the residents decide Dorothy and crew first need to be spiffied up a bit.  They proceed to clean then up in grand fashion while singing,

Rub, rub here, Rub, rub there whether you’re tin or brass
That’s how we keep you in repair, In the Merry Old Land of Oz

– From The Merry Old Land Of Oz 

And this is pretty much what Smokey did when he re-entered his merry old land of Kali.

“Sniff sniff here, lick lick there, I’ll give the softest nibble
That’s how I keep you looking good and ready for your dinner kibble”

– From Smokey’s thought bubble

(Yes, very corny!  But don’t blame me; Smokey’s responsible for the contents of his thought bubbles.)
