An Up or Down Vote

Mouse: “I strongly suggest just heading up to the mountains instead of going all the way to Death Valley.”
Lulu: “What do you think? Mountains, or Death Valley?”
Java Bean: “Well, I mean, the mouse is supposed to be el inteligente, so …”

Low and How About No?

Mouse: “So how did it go with the playing in the snow in the back yard?”
Lulu: “You were right. No snow there.”
Mouse: “Well that’s a shame. Maybe you can get your Mama and Dada to take you up to the mountai—”
Lulu: “I think maybe our elevation is too high. I need to go somewhere lower than sea level.”

After doing a little research …

Lulu: “Anybody up for a road trip to Death Valley?”
Charlee: “We like to avoid places that have ‘Death’ in the name.”
Java Bean: “I’ll go!”

Low and Snow?

Lulu: “Oh boy! Snow at low elevations!”
Mouse: “I’m pretty sure they aren’t referring to sea level.”
Lulu: “Of course they are. Elevations don’t get much lower than this. I’m going to go outside and play in it!”

Momentarily …

Lulu: “Well this is disappointing.”
Java Bean: “¡Oye, Lulu! Come check out this bug I just peed on!”

Trollty Towers


Spicoli: “Dude. Seriously. This is not the time to be rolling around in the snow.”
Lulu: “So this stuff is called ‘snow’? I like it!”
Producer Smurf: “Will you quit smurfing around and smurf back on the Magic Flying Coaster? You’re smurfing up my troll tour.”
Chaplin: “Wheee! I’m way up high! Charlee has never been this high up! I win!”
Troll: “Har jeg fått noe på hodet?”*

The Envelope, Please

On the “Best … Tag … Ever” post, TwoBarkingDogs mentioned an envelope for eliminating the “tag jinglies” associated with a dog’s rabies, identification, and license tags, and then I mentioned that Tucker used to have such an envelope.  I was pretty sure I had a picture of him wearing it, and lo and behold, I had already uploaded it a while back, for use in the Snow Puppy post.

Note the blue nylon pouch — that’s where his tags lived when he was a young pup.  It definitely eliminated the jingles!  Plus, he could use it to carry his cigarettes.
