I wrote a piece about tails a few years back for a group of us seniors who like to reflect on really heavy stuff...
I think my favorite tail is a rabbit tail. My favorite character when I was a kid was Bugs... what a tail.
Then take Tweety Bird's tail.... bird tails are really fascinating. Those fantailed geckel guys... duck tails... oh, boy, I think my second favorite tail is a duck's. When Donald got reeealy upset with Chip and Dale? his tail feathers would get quite a work out.
Then take a wart hog's tail... HAHAaaaa... I love going to the zoo just to see the wart hog some days. - I'm a member and just go hang sometimes... pick a particular animal and just watch. Ever since Pumba and Timon... wart hogs have gotten really cuter ...
|This was an internet sensation! A real Pumba and Timon! haaaa - whatta tail|
Cat and dog tails are very familiar tails. I get tickled watching a cat's tail... you can tell what's going on watching it. I don't like to see a dog's tail go between his legs... I don't like to see a dog beg... hate that commercial - begging strips... I have never thought that was cute.
|Can you find Hyacinth Hippo's tail? HAhaaaaa|
A HUGE animal like a bear or a hippopotamus having a little tiny tail is hilarious to me. Look at the elephant's tail... goooood bug swatters though. reckon that's their purpose as is a cow's tail. I grew up on a farm until I was 8 and while I never milked a cow, I saw Daddy do it a zillion times and the cow's tail would be swatting flies.
You realize we drink that stuff? I loved our cow, Jersey. She had beautiful eyes. We also had a bull -- his name was Wart --- he was very mean. He was kept in the back pasture and we weren't to go near him. Of course, my closest to me older brother and I would run to the fence and quickly climb over and say hey to Wart and quickly run back. In retrospect, I think Wart enjoyed our visits.... gave him a fun reason to snort and threaten.
Chickens were a favorite animal. They were hilarious. smelly though. cute little tails... Of course Foghorn Leghorn was also a favorite... and Miss Prissy.. HAHAhaaaaaa
Didn't like snake tails... they were all tail.... I had a dog - Dusty - he loved me - a lot. If I wanted to go walking down the road or go into my woods... Mother would always say... get Dusty. I didn't have to really fetch him... he was always with me. He was just a mixture of whatever dog. A big dog... if he jumped up on me... he would be taller than I by a head! he was gentle and m'pal.
I was playing along the side of our house one day and saw a snake... DUSTYYYYY! he came running... he looked up at me... I said SNAKE... he got the snake and put it in his mouth --- then put it back down... I said.. nono no Dusty ... get it away... Dusty kept picking up the snake -- he even did a going back and forth with his head kinda growling thing.... then put the snake back down.
Daddy came up and said... he's trying to tell you that that snake is a good snake... it's a garden snake - he won't hurt you. I swear to you ... Dusty heard what he said.... he did a up and down panting thing and got the snake and put it in the garden.
unbelievable.... God! I love animals. I remember telling my Mother that when I grew up, I wanted my own zoo.
hey! have I remembered a passion!? Why won't I go to the zoo and be a docent... seriously. I can't work with abandoned anmals... I'm too much of a bleeding heart....
I want a goat. Talk about a tail!
AND a little g'baby's bottom is due any minute! .... I spend a good deal of time when she first gets here showering her with G'ma hugs and kisses.... c'mon! waiting waiting waiting... ;)
