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?
