Big White Reveals His Story on Roy G. Biv

Hello Fans,

Please, call me Big White – the handsome white bird among my colorful cast mates. We are famous show bird celebrities. Danny, my trainer, paid a hundred dollars, and then brought me home to live with the Fine Feathered Friend Bird Company.

I remember the ride; gripping tight to the side of my cage, riding up front in the old beat up Ford Ranger pickup truck. No kidding. The ride was so bumpy, I began to think maybe I should have been more grateful living the dull life over at Pets R Us store.

Too late. I am here.

The next morning, and all mornings after, I realized something very profound, thanks to the Rainbow Dance Team.

rainbow, daily prompt, writing challenge

Hey, I am one lucky bird!

Look at all these lovely bird gal-pals…and they all love me!

Well, listen, you picked the worst time to visit. Morning. Lousy stale bread crumbs. However, of course, no complaints. It is far better than the moldy birdseed my ex-owner tried to pass off as gourmet exotic bird food. Really, Pets R Us staff? They should know us better…heck we birds are smart. Our heads may look walnut size but the brain cells are sharp.

Razor sharp!

These large pieces of breadcrumbs make it easy to snatch up from the ladies, the size being too hard for there delicate small beaks to handle. Some mornings I admit my gluttony. You cannot blame me. When some gal bird has a feather or two to pick because someone stole her moment on stage, well, it is the perfect breakfast moment.

Bread crumbs a-flying, my friends! Oh, the chaos, bickering and noise! Carry on girls…

Fortunately, my girlfriend, the cute one standing off to the side…do you see her? She handles all situations with grace and style. You never see her partaking in any silly ruckus.

We met on set last year. I admit it was love on the spot for me. My rainbow beauty…her bright red and orange feathers on her beautiful chest, yellow and green highlights shimmering in the sunlight, and oh, the prettiest blue head seen in show business.

Well, enough color talk, if you are ever in town, let me, Big White, and the rainbow babes entertain you. When you see my girlfriend’s indigo and violet sequined costume shake and sparkle on stage, you definitely will say you saw a beautiful rainbow dancing.

I adore you all…

Love, Big White

Write about anything you’d like, but make sure that all seven colors of the rainbow — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet — make an appearance in the post, either through word or image via Daily Prompt: Roy G. Biv.

Guest Writer: Chuckles Wraps Up August

Sunshine Award

Good day, Folks. Chuckles here to give the award shout out, or better, bark out. Ruff!

Wait. So rude of me to forget. How has your August been? Did you get everything done as planned?


Oh, so kind you asked. I must say, this month has been terrific as weather goes. I think there have been about four or five days that the temperature rose close to one hundred.

Life is good, although; I sure wish Rommel from The Sophomore Slump had invited me to Japan.

Maybe next time.

blog dog

i feel so pretty…

As you can see, I have my favorite spot under the flowering bush. Do not ask what kind of flower it is. I am clueless.

Hey, maybe Kozo or Island Traveler may know. Both are super family men and smart. I bet one will know the answer.

To get on with business.  Back in May, I must have spent too much time playing around with Little Binky and Simba, Sagittarius dog ☺. I missed featuring Musings and Rants awards.

Go ahead.

Be brutal.

I deserve it.

Just let me do one thing first:

dog hole

let me dig a big hole…

Ahh, now, where were we.

Right. Awards. 

Shazza’s  7 Wonderful Encouragements and the new awards.

Liebster Share the Love Blog Award

thanks, Shazza ☺

Dragon's Loyalty Award

i’m not scared of this dragon…thanks again, Shazza

Meet blogger Shazza as, in her words, rants about God, life, movies and randomness.

As my way of thanking all of you readers and loyal followers, a video (shh, I stole borrowed it from aFrankAngle) gift. It is my favorite.

Oh, I cannot stop myself from laughing over this video!

What is this? Excitement! We just met Morgan not too long ago and she honored us with  A Plethora of Awards from her BooknVolume blog. Why, thank you. This is perfect timing and we are grateful.

These are her awards:

Thank you, Morgan from BooknVolume

Thanks again, Morgan.

Well, time to go for my mid-morning snack, get a bit of Reading Pleasure, fill up on Philosopher Mouse of the Hedge, then off for a snooze day of patrol.

Take care until next time!

Guest Writer: Chuckles on Loyalty, Liebster and Very Inspiring Mentions…

Hello Everyone,
As you know, on occasion, my good fur-buddy, Chuckles, comes around to help say thank you to the blog friends who took a good chunk of their precious time to write-up an award or tag game post.

During the summer months, with the intense heat, Chuckles, sorry to say, becomes irresponsible in his writing duties. Not to worry though, I usually send my secret snitch, Mr. Rooster to badger the old boy to get the beep up!


A snitch at work…shh!

Here, finally, the Simply Charming thank-you post, paw-typed by Chuckles, (he looks filthy dirty because he really is!) to our thoughtful friends:

Dear Blog Humans and Blog Animals,
I am awake and yes, dirty only because someone, I will not tell you who, refuses to let me inside the air-conditioned house.

What else am I to do? I have to make the dirt my natural cooling agent.

Let me make this quick since I am perspiring and panting and must go lay down soon. I learned me some haiku while dozing in the heat…

Three mentions given
Hugs and kisses sent their way
Please visit them soon

Angelswhisper and Little Binky : a WONDERFUL post, full of kind words and the Loyal Reader Award.

Little Binky (shhh, do not tell my other feline girlfriends) is my number one kitty love of all times.

Big thanks to our sweet friends from Granny and Little Binky

Now that my dog heart is pounding like crazy in love, let me say thank you to:  Johann is Thinking | Liebster Blog Award.

Johann blogs from the United States, a retired teacher who, at one time, taught with the Missionary Sisters of our Lady of Africa.

COOL huh?

thank YOU, Johann!

Wait, one more award and we can all go and take our naps…Maria’s RandomlyAbstract kindly brought us the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

Please visit our Awards page for more details on this award.

That is it…signing off dear friends in deep gratitude…many thanks!

Your adorable blog dog,

Chuckles…a.k.a guest blog dog writer.

Totally Grateful For All The Flowers!

I am happy, you happy?

Come on, “The month of May was come, when every lusty heart beginneth to blossom, and to bring forth fruit,” so writes Thomas Malory.

In case you do not know, my name is Chuckles, aka blog award writer extraordinaire.

Do you dig my new spring look?

I feel so flowery and photo shopped to death.

But wait, flowers reminds me of blog awards.

It is time.

Chuckles on Gratitude

Listen, I have three, no, four life goals. Eat, sleep, bark and write well.

Eating, sleeping and barking all night is my forte. Writing? Eh. I need to practice so, unbelievably, I write thank-you posts for any awards that come this way.

Since I do not, and will not ever attend a dog obedience class, I feel rules need to be revised and updated. 🙂 Blog awards are no exceptions and the MAIN rule one should NEVER tamper with is GRATITUDE. SO,

“Mystic is cracked,” bellowed a jealous filly, Brownie, to the rest of the herd as they walked closer to the fence to observe the white horse.

Jewels gracefully shook her mane to scare off the horseflies. “Nah, I love how Mystic’s perspicacious mind operates. How I wish I thought about lifting up the water hose just to be funny. Observe who gets more apples and more daily brushes. It is Mystic because she expands her thinking away from the ordinary. We should be more like her,” said Jewels.

Suddenly, Mystic mumbled through the hose between her lips, “Hey, guys, want water?”
