Friends In Low Places

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. I’m a friendly sort of guy. In circumstances that I need to be. Like maybe, some days I have to get information out of a potential criminal. I need to be nice to get my questions answered for an arrest.

In some circumstances I have to be friendly in order to uphold my reputation. Part of being the most handsomest dog alive is a smile when appropriate. You gotta always be cool. Groovy. Put on the moves.

But these days, I’ve noticed maybe it’s becoming a bit harder to be friendly. These days, I’ve noticed that many are down. Scared. Tired. Unsure. My friends are in some low places.

Some of my friends are fortunate to not have their world turned upside down. My friend Jack The Kangaroo has no idea what a Virus Monster is. He hops around like normal being tall and able to ride any ride he wants to.

My goat friends are going about their day of being goats like normal. Stinking up the place and looking at me funny.

If I took the time to tell them what was really happening in the world, they would be worried about their food. Their routine. And so I find that not talking to them about such things is helpful. It doesn’t mean I don’t care. It means I care enough not to bring them down.

Limited Time Only

I’ve noticed that persons think that talking about bad news all day is required now. But what about all the good things that are still happening around us? Do we appreciate those things? Or do our conversations only center around negative things?

We are all feeling low. Why get lower? You can’t make a cookie taste better with salt. But you can make it better with peanut butter. Sweeten up someone’s day by bringing them to a higher perspective.

One of appreciation for the beautiful things in our world that haven’t stopped. I’ve got friends in low places. But my job is to take them higher. Let’s all try to do that.

Shower Drains And Barking Scorpions In Oklahoma

This is Deputy Digby Pancake.  Question for you on this Friday.  Have you ever been taking a shower in the Oklahoma place while naked and a scorpion come crawling up from the drain?  Just wondering.  Did it look like this, perhaps?

Here we are in Oklahoma.  OH, just a few days into our time here.  And this is how Oklahoma is treating us?  We hear one of your Oklahoma natives is a singer named Garth Brooks, and he even wrote about these friends in low places.  We should have known. But friends?  With these kind of biting friends, who needs enemies?

I have enough trouble dealing with a striped dog named Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle and don’t really need to deal with a striped Bark Scorpion from Oklahoma.

Oh, but you had different ideas as Boy Person was all naked in your campground prison shower with cold water.  You did. Scorpions in Oklahoma?  Oh, I guess that’s a surprise.

The last one to know, the last one to show
I was the last one you thought you’d see there
And I saw the surprise, and the fear in his eyes

 

I am all for one on respecting nature.  You know that.  I even respect dead things by rolling on them.  And Boy Person is even worse than me.  He will take an hour to capture a fly in the Big Blue Treat Wagon RV to set it free.  So when he was shampooing his hair in the prison shower, he thought he saw a shadow coming up from the drain.  He stopped.  He wondered.  Am I going to die now?

He thought of Girl Person’s bath experience in Hot Springs, Arkansas last week, and thought, well, maybe it was his time for an Oklahoma spa experience scorpion style.  After spending all day with the good people and animals at Paws N Ada rescue in Ada, Oklahoma, he was ready to call it a night.  But he soon realized this Bark Scorpion must need rescuing.  But first, he wondered.  Could he die from this?  All I wonder is why a scorpion called a Bark Scorpion doesn’t bark.  Seems like false advertising.  He didn’t make a sound.  Only the sound of terror was heard in the campground from Boy Person.

Apparently scorpions like to crawl out of shower drains when you are naked in Oklahoma. We did not know this before we came here.  If we had known this fact, we probably would have still came to help the animals here, but I tell ya what.  The persons would have thought twice about not showering in this RV to conserve water.  I have always said it, and I will say it again.  Showers are not a good thing. You will never convince me otherwise.  Throw in a barking scorpion coming out of a shower drain, and it makes my point for me.  I thought a striped barking Brickle was scary. This bites the butt out of his corndog attitude tail.

 

Bark Scorpion?  The next time you want to crawl up from a shower drain in a camp prison shower, I suggest you make sure who you are scaring.  No one else may take an hour to get you out of there as you are biting a napkin.  There is only room in this state for one of us.  And  well…

Well, I guess I was wrong, I just don’t belong
But then, I’ve been there before
Everything’s alright, I’ll just say goodnight
And I’ll show myself to the door

Oklahoma and false advertiser, Bark Scorpion? You have us here until next Tuesday at least.  So make room for another barking biter with an attitude, Sheriff Brickle and his Deputy.  And you better believe I can bark.

Cause I’ve got friends in low places
Where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases
My blues away
And I’ll be okay
I’m not big on social graces
Think I’ll slip on down to the Oasis
Oh, I’ve got friends
In low places
