Sold Out Tickets

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle.  Some persons may be making super fun plans for the weekend.  I hear some persons like to go out for dinner to fancy schmancy restaurants.  Some persons like to go to hang out with other persons at places to drink some drinks.  I heard some persons even like to go out to the movies or plays or shows.  But around here, the tickets are sold out.  So don’t even try to get them.  You can’t order online or in person.  The shows around here are in such high demand that tickets aren’t even possible because I don’t know what they are about. They are that good.


You see, we have been watching a show at camp for the past few weeks.  Every morning and every night, all of the birds here fly around doing tricks for each other, they dive in the lake, and then they roost on the islands.  Every kind of bird is out there.  Even the pelicans show up, the buzzards and the the cardinals.  This show is THE show to watch.


But something suddenly occurred to me yesterday.  There we were on the banks of the lake watching them.  Deputy Digby was doing his usual rolling around in bird poop, which apparently they sell at the concession stand, and I was looking mighty fine. Too fine.

I’ve got two tickets to paradise,
Won’t you pack your bags, we’ll leave tonight

And all of a sudden I wondered.  Were the birds buying tickets to OUR show?  Who was watching who?!  Were we on broadway too?  Oh.  This was intriguing.  And it made the shows even better.  In demand.  I amped up my handsome, Deputy Digby howled. This was so dern good.  This show. We had to keep this a secret though, I could tell this right away. When you know you have magic, its a dangerous thing.

A pretty man came to me
Never seen eyes so blue
You know, I could not run away it seemed
We’d seen each other in a dream
Seemed like he knew me, he looked right through me, yeah

This was going to be the hit of the centuries, these shows across the lake.  But we couldn’t let the secret out.  It was TOO big. Like Digby’s butt. But I wondered.  Could birds keep secrets?  Or would they try to promote our show far and wide to all the other birds around here…in the ocean.  In the skies.


So across the lake, I made it clear in my show that the only tickets available were to the ones right here.  Right now.

Right now, hey
It’s your tomorrow
Right now,
C’mon, it’s everything
Right now,
Catch a magic moment, do it
Right here and now
It means everything

You see, after it was all said and done, both entertainers in the plays across the lake decided that our shows were too good to leak out.  And even though our lives to ourselves seemed pretty ordinary, to the other side of the lake, they were extraordinary.


Do you really appreciate how special the show of your life is? How do others see it?  I bet they would buy tickets to your show, because you have the only show like it.  Make it good.  But don’t try to buy tickets to our show.  Because they are sold out.  All I have for you is a ticket to ride, y’all.  But since the Big Blue Treat Wagon RV is pretty stationary right now, you may have to wait in line for that too.

We have been on the road for almost two years now.  And one of the ways we are able to keep up with Brickle and Digby’s health needs comes down to knowing WHAT they need!  Check out the scans from PetMedella and Balanced Health and listen to our “live video” below! #sponsored
