Like many of my other blogosphere friends we are honoring Sammy, King of Baconia, from OneSpoiledCat, today. On his way to the Rainbow Bridge today Sammy made a whirlwind tour of many places where his many friends live. He visited me this morning in Virginia Beach, Va!
First, you stopped by mom’s work – I wasn’t even awake then!
Later in the morning I met you at Mount Trashmore. Weird name, right? Its really a mountain (well, hill really) made of trash. It’s the old city dump repurposed back during the 70’s. Mount Trashmore 2 is in the making but it won’t be ready for a few more years and will be twice as big as this one. That round thing on the side of the mountain is the city seal.
Then I took you to the beach – no trip to my city is complete without a trip to the ocean! I introduced you to King Neptune – but as you found out, he looks fierce but he bowed in humble gratitude that the Supreme King Sammy of Baconia would deign to visit him in his humble abode by the Atlantic Ocean. Remember he offered you the sea turtle he’s holding, but you wisely declined as you have a lot of other places to visit today and your balloon would hold the extra weight!
Well, our time together has drawn to a close. I’m so glad you came to visit my city and so glad you came into my life. Sammy, you brought joy and laughter and quite a few greenie badges to me and the Wrecking Crew. We will miss you so much but we know we will see you again. When you get to the Bridge, please tell Piper I miss her so much and tell LadyBird how much mom still misses her. We love you and fly free forever, beloved King Sammy.
Thank you to Dory, Madi, and Angle Easy for dreaming up this adventure and hosting it. To see more of Sammy’s whirlwind tour, please click on the badge.
