Brutus back here today, now that mom is done COMPLETELY embarrassing us and all... Although I have to say, being a villain is kind of fun - might have to channel Darth Brutus more often! Now, where was I before mom barged in...
Don't want you to think we missed out on Halloween just because we were waaaay down here in wilderness of Florida. Turns out that just because your house has wheels you don't have to skip the holiday decorating! Just take a look at the kind of crazy displays people put out even if they were only here for a few days. We want to know where the heck they store it all!!
|Mom said something about a striking resemblance here...|
We also don't want anyone to think we've not been glad to be along on this strangest Earlventure. We've never parked on one place so long before. Lots of nice walkies here at Fort Wilderness in the pine straw, and Carmen figured out that she can use her brindle furs for camouflage!
|They can't see me, so I'm gonna chew on this big stick...|
In the evenings mom & dad hang out with us in Big Earl, and there is plenty of time for some good bitey-face!
That being said, through it all we've been on the look-out for the reason that we've stayed here so long. Who are the brains behind this operation, and what is so great that the humans can be occupied all day away from us fabulous pups?? I'm happy to say I've finally figured it out!
|Eureka!! I've got it.|
Remember how we kept seeing this shape everywhere??
Well, mom finally showed a picture of the man (or should I say MOUSE) behind all the madness!
Somehow Mr. Mouse has managed to build an entire kingdom down here, apparently it's magic too! On our way out we saw definite evidence that it really exists. It's so popular that humans have to PAY to visit that mouse in his house! WTH??
Hmpf - must be nice. Wonder what we have to do to get our own magic kingdom?? Maybe it has something to do with the ears? Would humans flock in droves to "Frenchie World" like they do to see that silly mouse??
|Um, yes. I'd like my own Magic Kingdom now.|
|Not sure that having my own world is enough reward for letting mom put this on my head...|
Anyhoo, by the time you read this, we'll have long since packed up & turned Big Earl back towards Ohio. Why does the trip home always seem to take SO much longer??
Carmen got really bored in Georgia, apparently she thought that eating part of the state right off the map might shorten our route home. Nope. All it did was make mom mad (nice try though, little sis!!)...
|Nice texture, but it could use a little salt.|
Finally she just gave up and did what the rest of us (well, except dad) do while on the road:
So Big Earl is back home, and now needs to get ready for his winter hibernation. Thanks for sticking with me through the entire journey (mom says I can get a little wordy...). In case you are interested, here are our trip stats, straight from the on-board computer:
Thanks for letting me tell the story and hanging out with us. We can't wait for our next Earlventure, but that will have to wait 'till Spring. So, signing off from our own little Magic Kingdom back here in Ohio....
