R.I.P. Sammy...



...Sammy was a little beach mouse who would usually be chewing on paper and other beach trash everytime I went out to check the surf at the pier. Watching his simple life allowed me to lose myself in the moment and forget about life's trials and tribulations. Such a groovy little man, and he was way more mellow than those wretched Cardiff ground squirrels that actually attack people. I gonna miss you Sammy...

...and I didn't really kill him either.

I've been attacked by those sick Cardiff ground squirrels. They got no soul like you have portrayed Sammy to have.

Ian... said...

My best Sammy memory is that time Grumpy grabbed Sammy and tried to wrap him in electrical tape and, well, you know the rest. We couldn't get that smell off him for weeks.

I heard Sammy's demise was the result of an errant shot from a rabid Folly Raccoon drive-by. The E.2nd St set was out looking for a member of the W Hudson set that had dissed a female raccoon from E. 2nd. Sadly the shot missed and hit Sammy....it's sad. When oh when will Folly Public Safety address this growing problem with our rabid raccoon gangs???

(I have a picture of the suspect, but apparently the HTML won't jive with this blog, just know he's wearing a black mask and has sharp little teeth....be on the lookout)

....as a side note, I'm pretty sure the roof of my house is a safe haven for beach mice, though. As I am certain I have some of Samnmy's relatives currently residing there.

grumpy local said...

That wasn't me with the tape. Everyone knows the duct tape keeps them from squirmin.....I like the squirmin... squirmin vermin...

Hey, is that a fly in the DOA picture of poor Sammy...

djjahd said...

it seems as if you took those groovy little flip flops(you know the ones you posted about) with you on your trip.... the first pic looks a little foggy. See your friend was just ....

Ian... said...

good deduction...but it was actually taken with my camera phone that has resin smeared over part of the lens.

Well then someone needs to take a trip to the library or bookstore and get to reading, 'cause if this is the gayest thing you've ever read, then it's a sad illiterate life.

Maybe you could enlighten us all on gay literature old kook.

djjahd said...

dude.... how did my name get wrapped up in the gay thing.... im not into duct tapped beach mice... or literature in general....

Ian... said...

Do I need to put a sarcasm warning before every post?

Old Kook said...

You could put the sarcasm warning up, but I doubt it would make a difference to those that can't differentiate between sarcasm and serious.

Long live anonymous!
