When Tons of Wicked Little Thoughts Merrily Appear

Tra la! It's May!
The lusty month of May!
That lovely month when ev'ryone goes
Blissfully astray.

"Big Boy, did she just say 'astray?' I think that's dog for 'you're free to run straight through these tulip beds!'"
"Sugar Plum, you sure got yourself all sorts of jack-rabbit blood."

Tra la! It's here!
That shocking time of year
When tons of wicked little thoughts
Merrily appear!

"Daddy-O, I think those two Frenchie poodles over there givin' us the eye are beggin' for a smack down. How about you lead me out?"
"Baby, I hear you 5 by 5. I get it. But I sure don't want it."

It's May! It's May!
That gorgeous holiday
When ev'ry maiden prays that her lad
Will be a cad!

"Who are you calling a cad? Knock me a kiss, Sweetlips!"

Tra la! It's May!
The lusty month of May!
That darling month when ev'ryone throws
Self-control away.
It's time to do
A wretched thing or two,
And try to make each precious day
One you'll always rue!

"Wretched thing or two? Now that's what I'm talkin' about.  It's as if May is International Siberian Husky Month!"

It's mad! It's gay!
A libelous display!
Those dreary vows that ev'ryone takes,
Ev'ryone breaks.
Ev'ryone makes divine mistakes
The lusty month of May!

"Daddy-O, obviously, May is our 'Get out of Jail Free' card. So let's go raid the sausage vendor then go chase some cat-tail."
"Cupcake, keep talkin'. I got a lot of room left in these ears."

And now if you'd like to cleanse your ears and head from that G-rated, Julie Andrews tune, check out this little ditty for an R-rated,  modern take on the Lusty Month of May.

I know. You just can't help but tap your foot to it.

  1. Phoenix sends malinois tooth-snaps to Juno. He'll take that get-out-of-jail-free card and head straight for the cat-tails, TUVM. Great, now he has permission to act like he tries to act the other 11 months of the year. Gorgeous pics, I want to rub Loki's ears.

  2. Oh – I'm so envious every year when you post the pictures of the beautiful spring flowers around you! I just LOVE that picture of lucky amongst the tulips – the colours are just amazing against his cult! I know it's cheesy but I do love dogs posing in flowers! 😛


  3. ARGH! ARGH! ARGH! I HATE this stupid Voice Recognition software thing sometimes!!! Am typing this the old way - that should have said "I just LOVE that picture of LOKI amongst the tulips – the colours are just amazing against his COAT!" - GRRR!!! Just want to bash my head against the keyboard...this is why I end up not using the stupid Dragon Speak most of the time and just suffer the pain of RSI!!!! 👿 Hsin-Yi

  4. If that was Steve, he would have peed on every single blossom. Mom does her best to prevent him from doing that on our walks but is not always successful.


  5. OH, your photos are just so gorgeous and the flowers are incredible. Mom is surprised you can take Juno and Loki anywhere near them. We know for sure that we could never go in those gardens at all.

    Simply beautiful.

  6. LOVE the 'cad' photo. Face it, Loki. You're a bounder and a cad. But that's why everyone loves you! However, Fi and Abby would have loved to see you put the smackdown on some poodles - those poodle thingys can be WAY tougher than you might imagine.

    -Dr. Liz, whose allergies are on alert just from looking at the pictures!

  7. Mama is still humming and will take Julie Andrews over that Coulton clod anytime. True wit and double entendre are dead to the Millennial generation, or whatever they're calling them these days. We shall rise above them and enjoy a vicarious tiptoe through the tulips with you guys. Thanks for the trip.
