WINNIE-THE-POOH HAS A NEW FRIEND AND SO DO I

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

I'm sorry I haven't been around lately. I even missed the Battle of the Bands.

I poked myself in the eye. In bed. That's all you need to know.

Yes, it hurts. Quit asking.

Anypooh, I read online today that the deciders of all things regarding my favorite British bear have decisioned that a new Pooh book will be published, not written by Christopher Robin's father because A. A. Milne is dead, as is Christopher Robin.

Winnie-the-Pooh's new friend is a


little guy wearing a tuxedo.

My new friend hangs around my backdoor at night. His name is


Mr. Toad.

Damn! I'm creative.

Sometimes a dog notices him and attempts to sniff his butt. Unable to find a toad's butt, the dog runs to the yard to sniff its own butt. Mr. Toad hops deeper into the darkness.

He's not pretty, but he's mine and I love him.

I'll try to visit and blog more. I promise. It will help when I can see out of my left eye.

I know inquiring minds want to know, but bugger off.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

  1. You know, you are quite the humorist. I found you through Robyn Engel's blog. Even though she thinks I don't give a damn about her book and writing, I real admire her. And now, you. Seriously, though, how did you poke your eye out in bed? I've done that a few times, but I have a . . . oh, I think I get the picture.

    Love,
    Steve

    1. Steve! I hoped to hear from you. Buy Robyn's book so you can get another autographed copy. It's a shame that yours was stolen. I didn't poke my eye OUT, Steve. It's not rolling around in the bed.

  2. You should get that frog a stool and buy him a beer. We have toads in our yard that drink from our doggy watering pan outside.
    If you have one of those pans outside for your pups, you should put a half brick or rock inside the pan. One of our toads hopped in our pan and couldn't get out.
    Our great nephew Jordan found him the next day. He loves critters as much as we do. It was not a happy time.

    1. I don't keep a water bowl outside because of the rats and because the dogs don't spend much time outside. They drink out of a silver bowl on a velvet pillow. Poor Jordan.

  3. Hi Janie - I hope that eye improves ...soon! Winnie the Pooh - I hadn't realised a new book was coming out ... I've just read the hows and the whys via a newspaper article ... and it sounds like they've done it really well ... I shall enjoy at some stage. Good luck and take care in bed in future! Cheers Hilary

  4. All the toads who lived on our deck were named Tod. Fortunately there was only one a year. They can live for several years.

  5. Oh, I love toads! I think they're so cute. Hope your eye is better soon. (Won't ask--don't want to know--lol!)

  6. Sorry about your eye, and no, I won't ask.

    For some reason this post never showed up on my blogroll. Good thing I checked your blog for new posts, since that's happened before.

    1. Various bloggers' posts do not show up in my blogroll at various times. Verily.

  7. Oh My Goodness !Life with one eye is kind of strange ?
    I do appreciate the added knowledge of toad butts !
    Feel better soon.

    cheers, parsnip

  8. It doesn't sound like you want any sympathy, so I'll refrain from offering any.

  9. My imagination and gutter mind are both going into overdrive. Not about the penguin, of course. About your mysterious poke in the eye. Feel better soon!

    Oooooo, are you maybe wearing an eye patch now, like a pirate? That would be cool.

    1. I don't need an eye patch, but I could get one and wear it for fun.

    1. Keep wondering. Let your imagination run wild.

  11. No inquiries here since I managed to give myself a black eye one night while sleeping

  12. Dear Blinky: I've been married 61+ years, so my bed is no longer a dangerous place; apparently yours is!!

  13. I can relate to the blogging absence, but not the eye-poking. I do hope your eye gets better soon! I enjoyed your story of Mr. Toad :)

    1. Mr. Toad was in his spot last night. I always bend down to greet him. He doesn't answer, but it's okay. He's quiet and shy.

  14. Wait a sec...Winnie The Pooh is British? This has never occurred to me...and I never knew that Christopher Robin was dead either. His new friend looks like a cute little guy though. Is that a penguin, or a penguin suit? Anypooh...Hope your eye is better. Take care of yourself (and Mr. Toad!)

    1. A. A. Milne was British. He and his wife, who was his first cousin, had one child--Christopher Robin. He detested all the attention he received, and died . . . I can't remember when, but it's been quite a while.

  15. I self-damage too. I understand without explanations. Might I throw out there to say-its a kinky sex sort of thing.

    1. Not much kinkiness goes on with Willy Dunne Wooters. I'm clumsy.

  16. I think Mr. Toad is cute, but I like weird animals. Maybe you can work your way up to a penguin visitor. Don't try for the bear, though. They aren't like Pooh in real life.

    1. My mom made a Winnie-the-Pooh for me when I was little. He's falling apart and now resides in my ceder chest. I would welcome a penguin, but I think it's a bit warm here for them.

  17. Oh, I love Pooh's new friend, I wonder if his tears turn to ice cubes:) I hope your eye is better. I think the toad's name should be Percy...Percy the grumpy toad. His skin reminds me of a horrible dress Anna Chlumsky's Emmy dress

  18. I love toads. Your toad is beautiful. I'm not sure about this noo Pooh stuff, but I loved your "Anypooh." =D
