Day 2 of my journey

Hello Bloggerland,

I am still on my journey to the Stain Mecca. I received a few messages from my pals to join them until my mother comes to her senses. I also received a message from Jake and JH to look for that wayward egret. So, I thought... Why not kill 2 birds with one stone, so to speak. I know if I were an egret, I would go somewhere warm, and since many of my friends live in Texas, I would head that way.

Just as I was leaving Iowa, I spied the old egret. It was flying toward the Corn Palace!!! Why this egret would continue to fly north, is beyond me, but nevertheless, I was going to get that egret and return him to Florida!!

I followed him to South Dakota, then Lincoln Nebraska, then Dodge City, Kansas. Then, that dirty old bird headed straight for Oklahoma. I knew that Good Old Tell, Glynn and Cap would help me get that old bird. I mean, they have chickens! Certainly they could catch an egret? We tried to catch that egret, but we couldn't. I even looked in the flower pot. I sort of got stuck, as you can see by the photo.

THEN, that bird flew straight up in the air and headed South. So, I bid my pals adieu and jumped in the VW. The journey as is follows.

I finally caught up to that old bird in Houston, TX. I tricked him with more fish. I put a bow around his mouth and sent him back to Florida with strict instructions. I hope he doesn't get lost in shipping?

After all that, I need to take a rest. Currently, I am hanging out with Cricket, Sparky and Ginger in the back of their dad's truck. Maybe they can help me find the Stain Mecca. I think I am getting closer?

It's a good thing we stopped by your blog to see the news about E.C. Bird!!! We'll be on the lookout for him.

You are one heck of a clever terrier!!!

We never thought we'd see that bird again. But if he's willing, we may see if he'd like to pay off his debt by flying us to the Super Bowl bash that Gussie is having in February. Flying over the Grand Canyon should be a pretty cool incentive for an egret.

Thank you, thank you, COL. Sam ASTA-fari Joe H. Pinkerton Peabody, Esq. You are the best!!!

Mom and Dogdad will be so impressed.

Jake and Just Harry
