Spongebob Addiction

Saying for the day:“Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence. Day after day he invents machines and devices that increase noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation..

.”Your child hates that rectal thermometer ( don’t we all) but loves Spongebob Squarepants. Then Nickelodeon merchandising has come to your rescue. It is now selling a musical Spongebob rectal thermometer. It not only looks like Spongebob ( upper part of course) but it plays the Spongebob theme. Now your child doesn’t have to be scared any more . In fact the entire episode can be rather enjoyable.
I do see one little problem, Spongebob Addiction. I can imagine a parent child conversation that goes like this.

Child– Mom I feel hot. I think you need to take my temperature.
Mother– You don’t feel hot to me. We took your temperature a half hour ago.
Child– But I might have gotten a bug since then.
Mother – I don’t think so.
Child– But it’s better to be safe and Spongebob is lonely.

Just think of it. Little Spongebob addicts springing up all across the country.
The development of Spongebob parental support groups.

Books will be written on how to help your child cease Spongebobing.

Thank you! Nickelodean

#### News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal. Tommy UK is going to visit his uncle in Iron Mountain for the weekend . His father is letting him go as an award for saving the town from Fudd. His uncle is rather eccentric and Tommy’s father tries to limit the visits. Tommy UK always come back with new weird ideas to try.
Our dragons were here again last night. Somebody remarked if he had a rifle he could pick off a little one like shooting ducks on the pond. People gave him a dirty look and he shut up. One would hate to get the mother dragon angry or she might accomplish what Fudd failed to do.
Bonnie McGregor went in for a check up today and she is doing fine.
Mrs. Petrovich hasn’t been seen for a few days. People think that is because you can now tell she is pregnant. According to the usual sources she is carrying any where from onre to four children. Over at the Fly Inn they are betting on how many and when they will be born.

Today's Link-Some Place to Put my Pictures- Another Alphabet Picture Blog.
A very nice day. My oxygen he4ld at the same as yesterday, not as high as I would like but better than last week. I printed out the March blogs to send to Dawn. Betty worked on the back lawn. I began to work on tomorrow's elf tale. First I told it to the dragons on my computer who were clearly not impressed. Then I told it to a stuffed monkey that Louisiana gave me a long time ago. It seemed to like it. Then I told it to Maggie , our dog. Maggie loved it. She is such a good audience. She licked my hand as if to say thank you. Then I told it to Betty who sort of liked it. Now I will dream on it and tomorrow write it down. It is a tale and changes with each telling. Once I write it down it is frozen , forever. I also visited some blogs, watched an episode of Crossing Jordan and took a nap. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Poor Mrs. Petrovich... neighbors can be cruel. I wonder if everyone will buy her Sponge Bob rectal thermometers at her baby shower?

Is Norway Falls anywhere NEAR Pigeon Falls? It's LOVELY!

Wow, you're working hard on these pictures!

I've been to Crystal Falls. My neighbor moved there. And we have friends that moved here from there. Beautiful area.

when I was little, Mum used to take my temperature by placing the thermometer in my armpit, wasnt' as terrible as the other place. Once I could use an oral thermometer the other one disappeared. Interesting story, sometimes you are just a "Fount" of knowledge Dr John.

A Blessed day is wished for you and Betty.

I thought they took the temperature in the ear nowadays. Why do mothers insist on having a thermometer anyways? They obsess over numbers when temperature is just one indication of illness requiring medical attention. Most of us brought up our children never owning such a thing.

Wow. Do you have a link for that? My freakish-weirdo senses are tingling.

My kids love Spongebob and I am SO BURNT OUT from it.

Somehow that job doesn't seem like one Sponge Bob would have chosen for himself!

You are still doing great on the Alphabet Challenge Dr. John -- I am impressed with the size of your family.

JUST TOO CUTE. I'm still wondering if the dragons will have a "pupulation" explosion?
