Special Announcement

Hi Everyone,

Since our last posting on the news of Brind’Amour, we have received so many comments, notes, and emails, and just wanted to thank all of you who sent them. It was greatly appreciated. A special thank you to The Kool~Kittie~Krew, Khyra’s Khorner, and Tessa the Maltese for posting the news of Brind’Amour’s passing on their blogs, and also a special thank you to Louie Magooey and Cocorue for being so supportive.

Orielle and the twins—Benny and Aimee, have mentioned to me that they either might like to continue with this blog, to keep the spirit of Brind’Amour alive, or to start a new blog of their own. They don’t know if, or when, but you will be the first to find out here. They will post a note once they decide. So please don’t forget about us just yet. We miss all of you and will hopefully, be back soon.

Brind’Amour’s Mom

Message From Brind'Amour's Mom

This is extremely hard for me to say, but I feel that you, Brind'Amour's faithful followers, should know that Brind'Amour suddenly got very ill and has passed. We will forever miss his smiling face and his huge personality. Nothing will ever be the same without him.

Happy's Birthday

This is Happy. And today, August 28th, is her Birthday. You might be asking, who the heck is Happy? Well, I'll tell ya. Happy was my Mom's first quadruped. Her real name was Happy but her nickname was Boogie. Don't ask. I'm hoping it had something to do with her dancing a jig all the time but you never know. Anyway, my Mom loved Happy so much that every year on her birthday Mom would have a party and serve Coffee Cake Jr.'s. Happy even got one of her own!

Now, if Happy was still with us, she'd be... how old?... um... can't really count that high. But as you can tell from these old photos, she'd be pretty darn old by now.

Today's mission is to convince Mom to let us celebrate Happy's birthday by having Coffee Cake Jr.'s tonight! Think she'll go for it?

How Now Brown Brow?

My Mom just got us new wall-to-wall carpeting for our living room and the most awesome thing about it is that it totally complements my eyebrows!
Don't ya think?

Broadway News

Awesome news everybody!! My agent just called to let me know I got the lead in the new Broadway production of Little Orphan Brinny! Sweet! I knew I had a chance when they called me back for a second audition. It must have been my incredible singing voice. At least that's what my mom says. Rehearsals start Tuesday and I'll let you all know when opening night is.

Now, I can't say I'm all that thrilled with the costume design, especially the wig, but you know, show biz is show biz. But it is the costume design that I'm hoping will give a chuckle to my good friend Tessa and her mom, who hasn't been feeling all that well lately. I sure hope she's feeling better! Tessa's Mom: This one's for you!...

The sun'll come out tomorrow
Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow
There'll be sun!
Just thinkin' about tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs, and the sorrow
'Til there's none!
When I'm stuck with a day that's gray, and lonely,
I just stick out my chin and grin, and say,
Oh, the sun'll come out tomorrow
So ya gotta hang on tïll tomorrow, come what may
Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I love ya tomorrow!
You're always a day a way! WOO WOO!

Playing Games

So, listen to this. I woke from a power nap yesterday and noticed something pink under the couch. I reached under and pulled it out and wouldn’t you know, it was Aimee’s missing Nintendo DS. It’s been missing since my birthday party. So I figured, since Orielle took Aimee and Benny shopping, I was left all alone to enjoy a quick game or two before they returned. But when I turned on the DS unit, the game inside was Fashion Designer World Tour. I mean, what’s up with that? The girl doesn’t even wear fashionable clothes! I then went in search of her DS game case and found a slew of games. But, at closer inspection, found nothing I’d wanna play. I found, Zhu Zhu Pets with Hamster Baby, Hello Kitty Party, Hamsterz Life, Style Savvy, Build-A-Bear Workshop, and Petz Hamsterz Superstars. What is up with all the hamster games??? I know she thinks hamsters are cute but COME ON!!! Where’s all the good games like Super Mario Brothers, Monster Truck, Speed Racer, Major League Baseball, Space Invaders, and Cooking Mama. Okay, okay, so I like to cook!!!! Geez… a guy can’t get a break. All alone, and there’s nothing to play but furry little hamster games. Geez, Pa-Leeze!

Celebration Squared

So, like, today was my best day ever! And I'm sure you know why... It's my 11th Birthday!!!! Woo hoo!!!!
My day started with birthday kisses from Aimee. She's so cute.

Waiting patiently for my special breakfast.

Then, mom made me homemade peanut butter cookies. I love how she makes them into little bone shapes. Heck, I'd eat them in any shape!

After resting a bit, we went shopping at my favorite store.

Hmmmm. What should I get?

Oooh, oooh, that one! I want that one! It's perfect! Heck, they're all perfect. Get me one of each, mom!

After making a pig of myself in the store, we walked it off in my favorite park. That's my favorite oak tree in the back.

Catching a few rays. A perfect day.
I'd also like to mention here, that not only is it my big 11 birthday, but it's also my 100th blog post!!!! Woo Hoo squared.

Comb Over Conundrum

I got tagged by Amy and the House of Cats to play this little photo game. The rules are that you go to your first picture folder, post the 10th picture, and tell the story behind it. Then you tag 5 other blogs to play too. So, I opened the folder, went to the 10th picture, and I'll be gosh darned if I can't figure out who the heck this is! I mean, all four of us have the ability to sport a comb over of that magnitude. There really is no story behind this photo, a comb over is a comb over no matter how you look at it.

I tag: The Kool Kittie Krew, Tessa, Abby, Khyra, and my new friends Riley and Star.

CLumber Jack

If you remember, this was the bad tree that fell on our house.

The township didn't want to take the tree down so I took control.
Just call me CLumber Jack Brin!

Fort Stix

This is my new fort.

This is how it happened.
Let's just say Mom is not as happy as I am.

The terrible storm on Saturday brought high winds, torrential rain, power outages for over 10 hours, and the uprooting of one large pine tree on a collision course with our house. It also brought me one heck of a new fort! Why don't humans get that!?

Snow What?

This is my cousin Orielle. She thinks that snow is stupendous. She never gets cold or thirsty. I wonder how she does that?

Mini Brinny

Can you believe this is me?
Feeling nostalgic, I was looking through some photo albums and came across this picture of me at four months old.
According to Punxsutawney Phil, it looks like we're going to have six more weeks of winter. Does that mean that sprinkler time is going to have to wait? Phooey.

It's as Easy as 1-2-3!

First, you pick up Ball #1...

Then, ya squeeze it over to the side, and pick up Ball #2...

The tricky part is squeezing Ball #2 over to the other side without popping it out. Then, pick up Ball #3!

That's all there is to it! It's easy!!

No Weigh!

Since the posting of the "hand-holding incident" with Benny, I thought it appropriate to secretly follow him around to see if I might get even, if you will. In keeping my eyes and ears open, it became apparent to me that he's a bit sensitive to the fact that we call him Benny-The-Big-Head on frequent occasions. It's just a term of affection! Really! Now, how I know that he's so sensitive is quite funny actually. I caught him, on numerous occasions sneaking into the bedroom and weighing his head on the scale. I kid you not! That white thing under his chin is an official Health o Meter scale. One minute he's holding my hand, the next, he's insecure about the size of his head. That boy sure needs therapy.

I Wanna Hold Your Hand

So, I wake up from this awesome power nap, I peek over to my right, and what do I see? Freakin' Benny holding my hand! "Dude! What the heck is going on?" Somebody PLEASE tell me this is a dream!

Super Sci-Fi Saturday

Oooooooh! It's Super Sci-Fi Saturday!!!! Okay, so I dug out all my faves and narrowed it down to the top three -- Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes (a personal favorite), and Flash Gordon. What a conundrum! I just couldn't decide. So, I just went with the most awesome super-duper sci-fi flick ever made -- Godzilla in 3-D!!!!

Shhhhhhh! The previews started! Let's eat!!!!
