Lulu’s Life Tip: You Can Learn A Lot By Smelling The Wind

Hello friendlies! Lulu here! Last month, we had a pretty big wind storm here in San Diego County. While Mama and Dada were mostly concerned with the damage the wind was doing—for instance, it destroyed Mama’s plumeria shelter that Dada made, which, to be honest, was not exactly the sturdiest thing in the world—I was mostly interested in all the fascinating smells is brought in from far away. Have a look, not to mention a listen!

Rave Review

Emcee: “Thank you, Glitter Dogs tribute band the Rhinestone Rhodesians! And now put your hands together for Squeekles tribute band the Mopp Topps!”
Mr. Nibbles: “All right, you’re on. Now just remember, don’t be nervous, even though there’s going to be hundreds of people staring at you.”
Chaplin: “Pffft. We can ignore hundreds of people just as easily as we ignore one.”
Lulu: “Oh boy! People? I love people! Will they give me belly rubs?”
Cybersqueekle: “It will be fine. My emotional circuitry is disabled in firmware.”
Producer Smurf: “What a smurfy crowd! This could finally be my big break as a producer! I need to get some merchandise made up to sell!”
Mouse: “Excuse me, I think I see someone I know out there.”

Throw Way, Way Back (Pooh Bear & Trouble) Thursday: Mutual Appreciation Society (with Afghan)

Picture probably taken in 1991 or 1992

Dada’s Note: This one is for the folks who noted the afghan in last week’s Caturday Matinee ― as I mentioned in response to a comment, the afghan was likely knitted crocheted by my Nana some untold numbers of years ago. This week’s Throwback Thursday shows Pooh Bear and Trouble engaging in a little grooming session on it when they were both quite young, making the picture in this scan probably close to 30 years old.

No Treble

Producer Smurf: “All right, I’ve smurfed you a spot on a battle of the tribute bands type thing.”
Cybersqueekle: “I do not remember hiring you to be our manager.”
Producer Smurf: “Oh, see, I already manage the others, so by majoritarian rule I’m smurfo facto the manager of the entire band.”
Charlee: “Why do we have to be the Squeekles tribute band and wear these ridiculous wigs?”
Chaplin: “Yes, why didn’t you tell him you would be in the band?”
Mr. Nibbles: “Because I can’t sing.”
Lulu: “I feel like a sheepdog.”

Mallcats

Cybersqueekle: “The costume shop is this way.”
Lulu: “Everyone keep an eye out. I’m pretty sure this is the same mall where that Paul Blart guy stole my car.”
Producer Smurf (into phone): “No, I didn’t smurf the band played heavy metal, I smurfed that one of the members is metal.”

See I Told You

Lulu: “See? I told you they were nice! Well, one of them, anyway.”
Mr. Nibbles: “See? I told you we could get out of that situation by working together.”
Charlee: “See? I told you sending Lulu to bark at the door was a bad idea.”
Chaplin: “All right, all right, I get it.”
Lulu: “Thank you for carrying us out of there, Mr. Cyber Authority Man!”
Cybersqueekle: “You are welcome. Now we must go to the costume store before the other cyber authorities emerge from your domicile and discover that the mouse has freed you.”

Cyberman #1: “We have apprehended a small group of furry hackers. Awaiting further instructions.”
Chaplin: “They’re ‘ever so nice’, eh, Lulu?”
Lulu: “Well in my defense, they did tell me I was pretty.”
Spicoli: “Psst. You metal dudes didn’t happen to bring any Doritos, did you?”
Cyberman #2: “No. Go away.”
