Plush or Not??? by Skeeter
Dragon was recently talking about his little buddy Smokey. Smokey can get away with such things as tucking himself into dancing girl’s thongs and schmoozing with the Hooters girls amongst other wild rides! If not for Farland, I would think that Dragon has gone over the deep end. Well, he might have gone over the deep end, but my Big Daddy will be there to keep him company!
Farland is a Plush (don’t tell daddy) Plump Pig that belongs to my dad. Farland has such great adventures! Smokey and Farland must meet one day. They were to have that first meeting at the VFW this past Friday night but once finding out that catfish was not on the menu, dad backed out on the meeting. Farland and his trusty friend Spider were waiting for me at my purse with keys in hand but without their chaperone to keep them out of trouble, I was not going to take them with me. I would not be responsible for any trouble those two caused while in my care!
Farland has been to places some only dream about. He has been to Las Vegas, Texas, Georgia, Louisiana and many other States. He has even been to Germany twice to see me! That pig tagged along with visits all over Europe! He has wandered the halls of castles and he loves to climb on the cannons at Ft. Donaldson! So he and Dragon, ops, I mean Smokey have lots to talk about some day.
Farland was recently in Gatlinburg where just as Smokey, he had to get on top of the car for a top side cruise while looking for bears! He has a girlfriend and her name is Barbara Bear. She went with them to Gatlinburg to keep Farland and Spider out of trouble and away from other bears. She is a bit of a jealous bear! Farland does indeed get into trouble. I saw him get thrown out of a bar in Gatlinburg during the Tennessee-Alabama game last October!
Farland has a wardrobe of goodies that I will share from time to time. He has a bathing suit for his beach and pool trips. He has pajamas for overnight stays. He has German clothes for Oktoberfest fun, he sports a Santa hat at Christmas and of course his favorite is his Vol Game Day garb which he refuses to take off after football season!
Farland started out as a simple gift from a family member but somehow that pig has taken a life of his own! Some may say that Farland is only a Plush animal but I know that he has a place in our family and would be missed if not at a Family event! From weddings to graduations, he has been there for them all…
Maybe Dragon and Big Daddy explore their worlds through their Alter Ego’s of Smokey and Farland! Is that such a bad thing??? Na, I dont think so. Farland has put many smiles on strangers faces!
Anyone else here have a special stuffed animal--from childhood or even today? For most of us, they were our first pet!
