FRANKLIN FRIDAY: SOME BUDDY HAS BOOTIFUL ROCKS IN HER HEAD

HI! Hi! Hi! Hi! Hi, every buddy! It's me me me me me me, Franklin the Bordernese, and I wanna show you some pretties that will please.


Me and Mom know a very cool blogger named Low Rainy Day, and she . . .

What?

Oh.

Her name is Lorraine, says The Queen of Grammar who always has to get stuff just right.

Now let's see if I can continue without more interruptors.

Lorraine blogs at We are:Clamco. Me and Mom have liked Lorraine for a pretty long time, but we got even more interested in her when she started painting pretty things on rocks. Yes! Fur real rocks, like you find outside.

Lorraine even sells the pretty painted rocks, and we gots some. I can't show you pitchers of them because they're going to be Kissmas presents. You know how I love Kissmas.

But Lorraine said we can use some of her pitchers to show you her rocks.

Looky here:







Lorraine's rocks are so bootiful that she has sold most of them, but if you wanna see what she has left so you can buy me a Kissmas present, you can look at her Facebook page. She has a photo album there with lots of rocks she's painted. You can ask her which ones are still left and how much they cost.

Some of them are sins of omission, which means . . .

What now?

Oh.

They're commissions, which means that people ask for them and Lorraine paints what they want on the rock.

But if you don't wanna buy rocks, it's okay. Me and Mom hope you will visit Lorraine because we think you will like the pitchers on her blog of her painting and then she shows us how the rocks turn out.

Mom actually said something pretty smart about the bootiful rocks. She said, Franklin, sometimes people say "dumb as a rock" or "stone deaf." Suck phrases suggest that a rock is as dead as anything can be. But when Lorraine turns a rock into art, then it lives because art is alive forever.

Don't you think Mom is rotund?

Oh.

Mom says she's not rotund and that the word I should use is profound. snicker snort

Mom is kinda rotund. snicker snort snicker snort

I wonder if I can hold a paintbrush in my paw.

Penlapee! Do you wanna take a nap?


Here she comes.

Okay I love you bye-bye.

  1. I follow Lorraine's blog and have seen her incredible artwork. Her whole family are artistically talented.
    I don't play FB though.
    Wouldn't you and Penlapee look wonderful if she was to paint you?

  2. Hi Franklin - I think the patience in painting on rock must be wonderful ... sadly I'm not artistic, nor am I that patient ...I try - not really a good word. Take care and if you get a chance give painting a try! Cheers Hilary

  3. Hi Franklin, This is Zoey, Lorraine's dog. Yeah, my mom spends so much time painting rocks lately that she hardly plays with me anymore, so I hang out with dad. She has this big pile of rocks on the floor of her office. It's so weird. I tried playing with them, but they're so heavy and they don't taste very good. I've noticed that she keeps painting other peoples' dogs, but she never paints me. I don't get it. Anyway, she was looking over my shoulder while I was reading your blog and she was smiling a lot. She told me to tell you that she really liked your post. Oh yeah, and you can hold a paintbrush in your mouth. I tried it and so did the cat.

  8. OK, Franklin, you know you mustn't ever chew on one of those pretty rocks, right? Better make sure your sister knows this too. I have a sister named Faith, she always acts like she's so well behaved, but she's sneaky. Girls are like that. Bye, your Samson

  9. An interesting post, in that I found a painted rock just yesterday. It had a pretty bird painted on it with the word "dream" and on the reverse side it said to hide it somewhere so someone else could find it.

  20. Oh Franklin, have you been painted on a rock yet?

    Those are beautiful, and may keep me from using my paint pens to decorate rocks for a bit longer now (until I find a 5 year old nearby who I can say did them) ;)

    1. No, I'm not painted on a rock. You can paint on rocks and say I did them.

  21. Wow, that is so cool! When you said painted rocks, I was hardly expecting something that detailed.

    I just put googly eyes on mine. It makes it seem like my garden is watching you.

  22. Thanks, Franklin. Those are some nice rocks. Did you know that some people make pets out of their rocks? Give your mom a big doggy kiss for me.

  24. She paints pretty rocks. My son, Bubba paints rocks, too. He puts google eyes on his.

  25. I love her rocks.
    Wait. That sounded horrible.

  26. How does she get so much detail in such a small, rocky space? It's really impressive, Franklin. Those are rocks you might otherwise poop on, right? Don't do it.

    Love to you and mommy.

    1. I don't poop on rocks and I don't wanna talk about my poop anyway because it's personal.

  28. Some people are so talented! The Tom Petty portrait on a rock was awesome. I like Lorraine's portraits of dogs on rocks. I hope all is well with you!

  29. Those rocks are really pretty and are MUCH better than those old pet rocks used to be. (Or maybe they're still around? I dunno...) Anyhow, Lorraine is one talented gal.
