We do have a lot of prairie dogs here, and one we hear from every year is named Prairie Dog Pete. We’ll hear if he sees his shadow today.

Color Your World – Fuzzy Wuzzy Brown

This Week’s Challenges: January 7 – 13 (OWPC, WW & CYW)

The fuzzy wuzzy gopher is a battery operated toy, that moves and sings the Kenny Loggins song, “I’m Alright”, from the movie “Caddyshack”.

The horses are Clydesdales. My daughter took this photo when they visited the Warm Springs Ranch, in Missouri. This is where they breed and train the Clydesdales for the Budweiser beer commercials. She said the horses were massively huge. 🙂

Well, hello there. I am Gopher, pronounced ‘Go – ferrr’, if you please. I am quite famous. Let me tell you why.

I had a starting role in the golfing movie, “Caddyshack”. Maybe you saw that one? It also had a lot of human stars who appeared in the movie. Now, before you get all snooty, and say how can you be the original famous Gopher, if you don’t live in Hollywood? Let me explain… it’s true, I am not the original, but a very good copy. I live with the nice lady and her mister. I’ve been here many years, and they took me into their family, because they really liked the movie, and the mister is a golfer.

Me…singing and dancing

Me…in my dirt pile (see my smile?)

I do sing and dance on request. I sing the song chosen for me by Kenny Loggins, called “I’m All Right”. Here’s a still shot of me in action.

I’ve also been on my very own adventures. I took a safari out into the back yard,where I was given an actual dirt pile to climb around in. That was fun! It was supposed to trick the cats into thinking I was a real live gopher…haha, it worked, too.

Another time, I was taken in a clandestine night time case of trickery. The nice lady’s daughter took me to her friend’s house, had me sit in their front yard, and pretend to be a mole. They were so confused by the trick, but then thought it was hilarious.  Of course I was the star of the whole thing, again!

I spend time now, entertaining the grand-daughter with my singing and dancing. Thank you nice lady and family for all the fun times! 🙂
