BLAST FROM THE PAST – BACON’S SHOW AN TELL
This time the little oinker asked for a toy that you really loved as a child and absolutely could not live without that you had hours and hours of entertainment playing with. Or furver and ever and ever like the Overlook-Twins would say.
otwins
Thanks girls, your 5 seconds of fame are over, back to room 237… Shoo!
For my mom this toy was FREDDY. He still lives in my crib but in a box in the attic (like the haunted monkey-thingy of Mr. King).
 IMG_0040
My mom was a fan of the ole serial DAKTARI and her greatest wish was a monkey, like the poor animal what acted in the serial named Judy. Yes, they really were poor creatures, one of the lions was tortured with a stick by his owner and all in all the ones who should been hit with a stick are the guys from MGM for creating such a mendacious trash on the back of animals.

Butt my mom was a child at her first year in school and she loved  to see the animals and specially Judy the chimp. So she asked for a plush monkey every day and tortured her pawrents with nervkilling whining. One day as her granny was there for a visit and she was in the town with her mom and the granny the wish flared up again. While they were in a street cafe. Her mom would show the granny her fabulous educational methods and said: NO!
And that was the moment where my mom screamed like an air raid siren that the people in the cafe were frozen in shock. After 2 minutes and a collective hearing loss of all the people around the granny said: Ok, I see you have a super good grip on all things, butt please go and buy that darned monkey beast now, before they start to evacuate the whole town…
The mom of my mom entered the next toy store, grabbed any monkey thingy and brought it to her spoilt brat beloved daughter wo stopped the screaming immediately.
 IMG_0037
I admit there are some differences between Judy of Daktari and the thingy named Freddy, butt for my mom Freddy was her soulmate and BFF immediately. Because of the fact that my mom couldn’t write, Freddy was like a diary and my mom told him all her secrets and woes.
dakt2
Butt she not whispered her secrets in Freddy’s ear, naaah that wouldn’t be too cheap… they had phonecalls together. Unfortunately in ole times they  had no cordless phones with 87 hand sets , they only had ONE phone, what was the service telephon for my grampy that he is available every time. Butt Mom and Freddy gave a monkeys fart on that fact, mom took the real phone, Freddy got the shower hose of the bathtub and VIOLA! their own samarite line was invented. They had endless phonecalls together and if Freddy could talk, he could fill books with endless wisdom.
 IMG_0036
The idea only had two flaws, first: it isn’t smart to confess all your sins through the whole house while your parents are at home. Butt that was conditioned by the non wireless phone and the non wireless showerhose and second: it was a service phone for my grampy and if you are not available when your lord calls you, you will be overlooked at the next promotion….just saying…
 IMG_0038
… oh and Freddy has a chewed ear from the long phone calls…. therefore mom sends him sms now…
IMG_0039
For any grief and any sorrow call Dr. Freddy today or tomorrow! … or send a sms :o)
 .
…aaaand because today is  FRACTURED FRYDAY HAIRY TAILS, hosted by MURPHY&STANLEY I can continue the story. The phrase for today is:
 .
fryday0
.
I can’t believe I ate …
Yes, you know me and you will guess what comes…
 .
a
.
Ok, here it is… I can’t believe I ate…
FREDDY!
 .
c
.
Yeah. Freddy landed at the ER where mom fixed his head and the silvermistygrey monkey slayer had to beg for asylum at dad’s….. because dad’s side of the bed is something like Burkina Faso  and has no extradition treaty… with no one…

Tough  Toenails, Mom, huh?

  1. Did Mom do that screaming thing again when she first discovered you’d eaten a part of Freddy. Do tell us.
    Toodle pip!
    Bertie.

  2. Aw how cute! Your mom sounds like my little human. She sure does know how to scream to get what she wants!

    Oh no poor mum and Fearless Freddy 🙂 goodness I loved Daktari too..as children we had no idea of the suffering…I loved all animal shows..and sadly I had no clue either as a youngster…I loved Lancelot Link and lordie knows what they wee treated like..hope the movie peeps are in room 237 with the Overlook twins..i am glad mum saved Freddy…that was a close call..on a phone of grampy’s 🙂 🙂 hugs and loves Fozziemum xxxx

    • I was speechless as I read the truth behind Daktari or Lassie ( I felt anyway sorry for this dog who had to safe silly humans in every episode). But as a child you just enjoy to see this animals and you think the people around are good, because they always did good things :o)

      • fozziemum says:

        I know…at least now us as adults are aware and then teach our children..animal actors have some more protection now..not much but a bit…urghhh part of growing up is realising adults are fallible …:(

      • yes. like mom’s friend Liz said once: life is flawless till you turn 10, then it goes downhill :o)

      • fozziemum says:

        Your mum’s friend Liz is wise indeed….as my kids grew up they were like all children in a hurry to grow up..i kept saying especially when they were in High School..”This is the easiest your life will ever be…slow down..all you have to do is learn…that’s it..” sure enough now they say they remember my wise words..and regret not embracing youth :)..they only say this because I am no longer doing their washing cooking cleaning driving handing over money..hahahhaah 🙂

      • I agree with you! and I could kick myself that I wished once to be adult and “free”<— haaahaa!

      • fozziemum says:

        Hahaahah no freedom with age is there hahaaaha 🙂 xx

  4. OMD Easy that was a blast from the past and we did not know they were mean to the animals. Grrrr we loved that series too. We so too would have tried to have a chomp on Freddy. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Julie says:

    Oh no, you ate Freddy !!!!
    I ate my Dd’s favourite guitar plectrum, couldn’t be saved by ER though so I’m still in disgrace
    Loves and licky kisses
    Princess Leah xxx

    • oh Leah that’s bad… that means no rock concerts in your house now?… sometimes lost things come back the “natural” way… maybe it needs a while till the plectrum comes back? hope it wasn’t a special one, used by Carlos Santana or Keith Richards…

  6. Easy! How could you eat your Mom’s beloved Freddy from her days of youth when Grandmoms saved little girls from screaming their brains out because they wanted a monkey?! No doubt she’s forgiven you by now for the little accident and that your Dad granted you asylum on his side of the bed. As for Mr. Monkey – I think your Mom is going to need to buy him a hearing aid – maybe from the trashure store? That ear of his looks like it will never “work” properly again!

    Hugs, Sammy

  7. Old toys like Freddie look so much better with loving stitches 😉

  8. DailyMusings says:

    I remember Judy, and Daktari- but never would have until you wrote it. Screaming like an air raid siren was something I was good at too, but you are lucky they gave in… usually I was sent to bed. 🙂 I will say I am glad Freddy was rescued in time. Such wonderful secrets he allowed Mom to share. 🙂

    • fortunately for my mom it happened in public, so her mom could do not much :o) I’m glad too that the monkey survived…. otherwise I would land in the dog house and sadly my mom hasn’t learnt something from her mom…she only rarely gives in :ol)

  9. fredrieka says:

    Oh my momwithoutpaws says “LEAVE IT” way to often, I look at her put my ears back and wait till she is not looking and try again. I think she has eyes in the back of her head

  10. kolytyi says:

    What a fantastic girl your mom has been!! She was able to choose ONE monkey from a whole herd! And what a relief that her fantasy wasn’t even more vivid so that she didn’t try to use water as a communication channel via phone! 🙂

  11. WalkToRio says:

    Freddy looks like a voodoo doll, but back then all toys looked scary. I imagine in a couple of years current toys will look scary too.
    I had a huge bear (I thought it looked like a bear anyway), my brother and I would use it like a carriage, tied it to our 2 dogs and make them pull us. The dogs seemed to love it because it was their only chance to play inside the house. Dogs were only allowed in the kitchen. Those were my parents’ rules, but once they were gone dogs would come in and use the house as their own.
    Bear is still alive, missing an eye and the nose and half of an arm is gone, the tail is missing too. But alive.
    Have a nice weekend!

  12. Everyone needs a friend to share their secrets with. I don’t think I had a favorite toy – I probably did, I just don’t have a good memory.

  13. YAM says:

    Hari OM
    Oh this was a wonderfully captivating monkey tail…er tale…. which became frightful when it turned to the chomp chomp….eeeeeekkkk. Oh well… Easy done I s’pose… Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  14. PigLove says:

    Oh dear sweet piggy heavens. I.can’t.breathe. Mom says that Freddy is the ultimate man – you can tell him all your secrets and he will never look at you any different – snorts. LOVE Freddy and the phone source. Awesome post brother ❤ it . XOXO – Bacon

  15. Goose says:

    My MOM thought and thought and she could not come up with a favorite toy. She grew up on a farm and said that all the animals were her best friend. But her pup Rosie was her bestest friend whom she shared everything with. Oh and Roger her rabbit, but one day they ate Roger, which my MOM was very sad and screamed like your MOM. Have a happy day brother.
    Blessings,
    Goose

    • Oh how sad…. it happened to my mom too, her grampy accidentally butchered mom’s rabbits Andy&Mike and couldn’t find stand ins what looked the same. Fortunately her granny was a good liar and said that the wintercoat looks always totally different on rabbits :o(

  16. Oh Mom remembers watching Daktari as a kid too – Clarence the crossed eyes lion was her favorite 🙂

  17. Midwestern Plant Girl says:

    Ha ha! Such imagination to make a phone out of the shower. Where did that all go when I grew up? So sad! Thanks for writing about mom’s story, it made me laugh a butt load.

  18. cecilia07 says:

    Hey Easy…
    My mom had a sock monkey she loved.
    OMDs you gutted Freddy…whatever were you thinking. mOL MOL MOL
    Hugs madi your bfff

  19. stella rose says:

    We had to go back and reread this twice cos we enjoyed it so much!!! Our momma remembers that show also, and remembers those big chimps you could by for all your lottery winnings. her favorite was a stuffed pillow dog called polly. She had polly until she was married ,which she eventually disinagrated due to all the teenage tears soaking her body.
    stella rose

    • That can be Stella Rose, teenage tears are very salty, probably Polly got salted with all the sorrows such teenage girls have. But now your mom has you and always when she is sad you are there to smiley all sorrows away :o)

  20. Kyla says:

    Monkey see, monkey do. Monkey hear, Monkey tell everyone.

  21. Emmadog says:

    Oh no, not Freddy! My mom would have been in tears over it. Humans can be so sentimental.

    • yes… I remember the pony I ate once. she got it as she was born…. I only tried to remove the head of Freddy that he can’t tell her secrets, but she wasn’t grateful… now she has to bear the consequences when Freddy starts to twitter…

  22. Brian says:

    Oh my, those screams get us running to hide under the bed!

  23. our Mom’s favorite toy was a blue hippopatomus. Slept with him everynight.
    hugs
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Greta

  24. dezizworld says:

    Oh Easy yous awe so cute!!! 🙂 Dat’s a gweat story. Sumhow meez mommy members a Judy da munkey to, but not da name of da show. Maybe they named it sumfin’ els when it aired here in da US. 🙂

    Luv ya’

    Dezi

  25. Easy, you made sure that monkey will spill its guts but no secrets. Now it can safely be stored or maybe buried for a time capsule. Imagine a dog digging it up in 2064!

  26. The OP Pack says:

    Oh no, poor Freddy – hope he heals well from his surgery. We think you should add Freddy to your class of students – maybe he would share some of those phone conversations he had with your Mom:)

    Woos – Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  27. You ATE Freddy??????????? We hope his hearing comes back!!

    The Florida Furkids

  28. Wow! I haven’t thought of Daktari in eons! I LOVED that show and Judy! ♥ It is strange how as kids we just assumed the animals were happy. Thanks for the flashback and so sorry about Freddy. ☺

  29. Frankie and Ernie says:

    OMD you tried to KILL/EAT your mum’s beloved FREDDIE??? You are lucky that you didn’t end up in DOGGIE Jail over this one.

  32. fernerose says:

    Easy when I was a young young child we lived in a little trailer only 12 long and 5 ft wide. No room for any toys.for a child!!

  33. bichonpawz says:

    You are an excellent story teller Easy!! When Chloe was a puppy she used to love to chew on computer wires!! NOT GOOD!! At least yours can be repaired! BOL!!

  34. Poor Freddy BUT he had your Mom still to fix him up. Friends forever!

  35. You didn’t have to beg for mercy! Lol poor dude!

  36. Sage says:

    OMD, Easy. You ate the monkey??? Good thing it was only a teeny bite….

    • I totally agree with your mom, I felt sorry for Flipper and for “free” Willy and we decided to skip such shows… because they always had bad aftereffects for the animals…. This week was really afast one… seems the time was running like that Paavo Nurmy guy once…

  38. Well Easy, Monkeys aren’t on our favorite NOMS list so……. in your Mom’s honor we will say “how could you?” (*whisper* good job Easy, monkeys are scary)
