Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
At last the time has come for The Mantel Gang to share what they did over the holidays. First, they moved to their holiday headquarters––a secret location known as Top Shelf of Bookcase. They took the time to attend some public events, however, starting with their attendance at a Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Following the parade, they buckled down and got to work, but someone new joined them to monitor their health. It's Dr. Fauci!
He's so diligent that even in retirement he doesn't want his friends to get sick.
Their next public event was The National Tree Lighting Ceremony.
After working very hard throughout most of December, everyone took a break just before Christmas so they could enjoy the holidays.
They gathered in a new location––Top of Armoire––where they went walking in a winter wonderland.
Then President Biden wanted to attend church. He invited them all to join him. Suddenly everyone was busy. They claimed they had plans with their families or had already accepted other invitations.
Don't tell Joe, but they actually gathered around the Christmas tree to play some drinking games, led by Justice Ginsburg and Nancy Pelosi, who raised their gavels in unison.
Hillary imbibed a little too much and started to sing, which almost broke up the party.
Here you can see she holds out a glass of liquid refreshment for Barack, but he preferred to smoke his holidays away.
The action figures haven't decided where they'll gather next. Do they want to move back to The Mantel, where they're on display all the time, or would they prefer a more secluded spot? I can tell you they've done a lot of whispering about classified documents. Shhhhhh!
Infinities of love,
Woot woot to you too!Delete
Love this post! Love those videos! Hilarious!ReplyDelete
Even though I made the videos, I snorted when I watched them.Delete
HAHA! Love this post, Janie! It put a smile on my face. I would really enjoy getting together with this bunch.ReplyDelete
I'm glad you're back, Martha!Delete
Big smiles. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Keep smiling, EC.Delete
So funny!!! :) :)ReplyDelete
Glad you liked it.Delete
You are hilarious and it looks like Janie Junebug and Wrangling Rebekah had a really good time.ReplyDelete
We did! And we weren't even drunk.Delete
I will snorting at the parade video all day!ReplyDelete
It makes me snort.Delete
You've taken art to the next level!ReplyDelete
To the next level of silliness maybe.Delete
I think you need to add a spy balloon. Just sayin'ReplyDelete
That's an excellent idea!Delete
mmmmmmm, are you washing the fruit off before you're eating it Janie?!?!?! LMAO!!!!!! I was laughing so hard, my side hurt!!!!!!ReplyDelete
I'll take that as a compliment.Delete
I liked that and enjoyed it.ReplyDelete
I'm glad you did, Joanne.Delete
I think you have too much time on your hands!!ReplyDelete
I have to make time for fun!Delete
I giggled all the way through this. Love your 'take' on everything. Have a great week, Janie. xo DianaReplyDelete
I'm always happy when someone laughs at my silliness.Delete
Where did you get your figurines? Those are great. I love that Hilary is in a pants suit;)ReplyDelete
They're sold online at https://shop.fctry.com. When I wanted Hillary, she was sold out, so I bought her on ebay. I think she's available now.Delete
I love the adventures they have. I think a window sill where they can keep an eye on the comings and goings. Although they probably have cameras set up for that.ReplyDelete
Maybe they need to visit a window sill to monitor a Chinese spy balloon.Delete
I'm enjoying your Mantel Gang:) Have a great one.ReplyDelete
Plastic politicians are clearly more interesting than real onesReplyDelete
That is SOME COLLECTION of action figures. Personally, I'd add some villains (we know who) for some interesting action and reactionReplyDelete
The company made a figure of you-know-who. He had removable hair and the middle finger of one hand was up. He sold out. Some people have him for sale on ebay, but he's too expensive for me. It would be nice for my heroes to have the chance to beat him up.Delete
Happy Valentine's Day, Janie. Sandra sandracox.blogspot.comReplyDelete
The mantel gang!!!! Outstanding! I suppose they have to keep their travels on the up and up away from the canine crew (Thats is not to suggest that Franklin or Peneope would ever EVER do anything naughty, just that they might not want to swim in any bowls)ReplyDelete
If the gang were in a spot where doggies could grab them, Franklin would not be interested. Penelope, however, is a thief/kidnapper. She might attack them, which makes me wonder if Penelope is a secret Republican.Delete
Love the mantel gang! I bet you can have a lot of fun coming up with stories for them to act out.ReplyDelete
I like to move them around so they can get up to all sorts of things. Previously, Barack got mad at Joe for holding his hand.Delete
