by Rondo, Friend to Frodo
Good morning, FRIENDS. Isn't today FANTASTIC?
Not sure I can do as FABULOUSLY as Etude in his last blog but I shall put my best FOOT FORWARD and FORGE ahead. Well, actually I'll be putting my paw FORWARD since we cats have paws, which gives me pause. Why are our FEETSIES called paws but FOLKS have FEET? Can anyone explain? And while I'm at it, why do people have two hands and two FEET but we have FOUR paws - two FOREPAWS and two hindpaws but they are all FOUR paws? Or better yet, why aren't peoples' hands called FOREFEET or their FEET called hind hands? I'm FLUMMOXED!
Well that'll give us all something to FOCUS on other than FOOD.. although just as Eating is Etude's passion FOOD is mine. I bet you are surprised to FIND that out. Of course you are. And while I'm on this topic let me correct Etude's statement that I sing for my FEAST in the key of E FLAT. I sing in the key of F natural when I'm FAMISHED and F sharp when I'm near to FAINTING FROM FOOD deprivation. These are very distinct sounds. Of course, Etude, not being musical would be less than knowledgeable about the distinction between E FLAT and F Flat so we must FORGIVE him FOR being FOGGY minded on that topic. (Just for a little extra FUN - go to a piano keyboard and check out E sharp and F natural. *giggles*)
Okay, now on to other FAVOURED F words. How about FOUNTAIN, FIRESIDE and FEATHERBED or FABRICATE, FICTION and FIASCO? Well, I think I'll begin with FOUNTAIN, FIRESIDE and FEATHERBED... all of which are FOUND in our home. We have two FOUNTAINS FROM which to quench our thirst and multiple FEATHERBEDS to FLOP on while being mesmerized by the FIRE crackling in the FIREPLACE on our television. Now that is FABULOUS, don't you think? The other three words I'll address near the end... so stay FOCUSED.
While we're at it... two more of my FAVOURITES are FRIENDS and FAMILY. Well, FROM our list of FRIENDS of whom there are many, a FEW of those of the F crowd are FRODO and FAMILY of Many Claws in St. Croix and Da FLUFFAROONIEZ - the whole crew. These two groups have been our FRIENDS FOR it seems like FOREVER. FRODO is our buddy who FLITS around the Virgin Islands on his Hoverboard FORAGING FOR FRANKLINS to pay for FUEL to FLY his plane on our adventures to FARAWAY places. OKAY, he and his FAMILY are our FRIENDS and he hoverboards and FLIES a plane but the part about FRANKLINS was stuff and nonesense... aka FOOLISHNESS. Suffice it to know that he and his family are our dear FRIENDS and we love their FLUFFINESSES into FOREVER.
Da FLUFFAROONIEZ the aforementioned crew, FORM a chorus and FOR many years have been FOUND visiting FACEBOOK pages and singing their FAVOURITE song of the week and greeting each of us with a descriptive adjective similar to 'hope your week is FABULOUS or FANTASTIC or FANTASMAGORICAL or even FENOMENAL (**Teehee**) I had to throw that in there but of course the correct spelling is phenomenal. FOOLED you! While I'm here I'd like to say, we miss the Da FLUFFS as we called them and their weekly visits... but we understand the situation and are just happy they continue to post though it may be in a different FORMAT. Oh, we have it on good authority they'll be back in May. FANTABULOUS!
Okay, let's stop and go back a little here. You remember I mentioned FRODO FORAGED FOR FRANKLINS? Well, for those who live outside of the USA FRANKLINS are $100 bills - the currency with Benjamin FRANKLIN on them. AND who is this FRANKLIN fellow? Well, he was a FOUNDING FATHER and a statesman amongst other things in the newly FORMED United States of America. He invented the FRANKLIN stove, the lightning rod, bi-FOCAL glasses and wrote articles on many subjects.
Our FAVOURITE would be his essay FART PROUDLY, about FLATULENCE which he penned while Ambassador to FRANCE. Now that is FUNNY! The FRENCH might say FORMIDABLE! Please forgive me if I've made a FAUX PAW here. I'm a Canadian kitty and am not overly FAMILIAR with American history or FRENCH etiquette. And on that note I'd better move on before Grammy has a conniption FIT. This subject hits a little too close to home. FLATULENCE, that is!
So, dear FRIENDS the good news is that I didn't FABRICATE the above discussion on FRANKLIN. It is not a piece of FICTION but is somewhat FARCICAL or rather, his essay is.
Oops FIASCO! Grammy has cottoned onto my windy topic and is FORMIDABLE when she's putout and I'm about to be too, literally.
Comments are welcomed. Keep them FUNNY, FRIENDS.
