Hallo Everyone, Young and Old!

Smell the flowers…

Hear Ya, Hear Ya!

The little rascal insists
“That the numbers  1, 3, 33 and 133
must be his lucky numbers.
Why?
’cause he is living in a house
numbered 133.”

We think we are very lucky that our
“Tuxedo”
Shi Poo with a forever wagging lion plume
feels lucky living under our roof.

He-He-He Mistress Mommy “Tuxedo”
tickles my funny bone.
Now I have to roll over the carpet!

Ha-Ha-Ha Little Lion that always tickles
my funny bone when you do that.
It makes me and your playmates
laugh
so much, that I almost fall off my chair.

Laughing is good for you.
I read somewhere
that children laugh 300 times a day
and adults perhaps 40 times or less.

A pity!

True or myth, I can’t tell.

But if it is true no wonder there are
a number of curmudgeons around us.

“Thus, if there is no toddler in the house
to keep you laughing
get a Shi Poo or any other pet that
makes you laugh and laugh and laugh.”

Good thinking Little Lion!

 Pets make you smile and laugh a lot!

Can you believe this folks…

My enthusiastic talk about pets
prompted Little Lion and his play mates
to demand a pet of their own.

Guess what…

The crew wants a Praying Mantis and
they know exactly were to find this
highly amusing and interesting pet
and how to catch a mantis!

http://www.wikihow.com/Take-Care-of-a-Praying-Mantis.

“That’s right fans and since
“Mistress Mommy” aka the “Blog Muse”
doesn’t like to catch bugs, I called
the “Young Mistress”
who is not squeamish about touching bugs.

We will keep you posted if a Praying Mantis
will be entering door number 133.
And keep on laughing and counting your laughs.

The link below can tell you all about it.

Give it a try!
Grin-Grin, Grr…Grr… Grin-Grin

Surprise!

It was Empress Zoe Labrador’s 7th birthday
on September the 5th but we will be
celebrating it with a big bang in the
near future when the Young Mistress
will be visiting us.

 That’s all for today!

With heartfelt thanks to everyone for
the links and animations, which bring
magic and joy to the written word and
enrich our knowledge and increase our laughs.

This link will bring a lot of laughs, too.

Grrr… Hurray!

Now I can learn to drive! Grrr…

Dear Fans, Family and Friends,

Hullo Everyone!
We hope you are having a great time
now school and Autumn are around the corner.
Autumn days are appearing quickly and
new fun is on the way starting today
with the Monday celebration of Labour Day
in Canada and the USA.

You may learn more about how this holiday
came into being at:

https://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/canada/labour-day

Without further ado let’s have a peek at

http://www.cp24.com/news/fairytale-tree-enchants-brampton-neighborhood-1.3546982

and the magic of the tree house we visited on
the birthday evening of the “Young Mistress”
who took a few magic photos
which we will show you in the near future.

“Woof… woof” barks Little Lion

“BE AWARE”

 The magic tree house may play a few
tricks on its own and bewitch this blog.

You are all warned and
if something spooky does happen, please
send us an e-mail right away
and tell us all about it.

We love to hear about spooky things!

Now, over to the Labour Holiday in Canada.
This holiday is celebrated just before
the new school year starts in Canada.
Summer holiday at the cottage is over
and learning at school begins.

A pity, but we can’t hold on to
lazy summer days forever.

Speaking about spooky things…

Little Lion feels that pets should
patrol the school yard
so as to keep spooky intruders
and school yard bullies away
and keep peace among all youngsters.

Perhaps we should ask former
USA President Barack Obama
to endorse Little Lion’s request.
The world can only “love”
this Peace Twitter
who on August 12, 2017 tweeted:

“People must learn to hate
and if they can learn to hate,
they can be taught to love…”

“For love comes more naturally to the
human heart than its opposite.”
~Nelson Mandella.~

Wise words from two famous Peacekeepers!

With this peaceful thought for the world
Little Lion and Gypsy Joy

 aka “Mistress Mommy” and the “Blog Muse”
wish you all a lovely weekend and a
happy new beginning of the school year.

Love, Luck and Laughter!

He-He-He “Mistress Mommy”,
last time we were in the three T-T-T’s
and today we are in the three
L-L-L’s
What 3 letters will you be thinking up next???

Ha-Ha-Ha Little Lion,
that may just be today’s question.

Any suggestions anyone?
Just keep in touch at
fairytalejoy@yahoo.ca

 With heartfelt thanks to everyone for
the links and animations, which bring
magic and joy to the written word and
enrich our knowledge.

O Little Lion run to your LOOK-OUT
there is
a commotion disturbing the peace!

Grr… Grrr… Grrr…
Hey you! Keep peace… Grrr….

Enjoy the beauty of the Dutch Town
“Giethoorn”
in The Netherlands
a small country with a very large population
were most of the world’s flowers are grown
and the land is won from the sea.

Celebrating Happy Milestones…

Shih Poo Tales

Today we have a feast for man and beast.
It’s a birthday feast
for the “young mistress”.
Hurrah… Hurrah!
She is coming over with Empress Zoe Labrador!

We are all excited, especially Mommy
who likes to add a bit of magic to
the young mistress birthday.

You see we just found out our Flower Town
has a fairy house downtown where an artist
tree carver and his spouse are living.

If we were rich Mistress Mommy would rent
a fairy carriage.

http://www.fairytalehorsencarriage.com/

 A pity that fairy thought cannot come true.
However, there is a magic tree house
in our city crafted by
Brampton`s tree artist
Billy Watterson.

The magic fairy tree art was recently
featured in the local Guardian newspaper,
delivered free of charge on August 18, 2017.
Just in time to add some magic to the
young mistress birthday.

 

The magic tree house artist has brought
a bit of fairy land to our Flower Town.

The way Billy Watterson and his spouse
are wielding their magic shield,
Flower Town Brampton may soon be known
around the world as the
Magic Fairy Tree Town.

What’s in a Name, you may ask?

Well, at times a lot! See for yourself…

https://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/nov/07/calvin-hobbes-bill-watterson-new-comic-strip-work

Another famous Watterson who carries on
the magic of a wordsmith.

Are they related?
Sorry, we don’t know.
If you do, send us an e-mail.  

To our beautiful birthday lady:

“We wish you a very Happy Birthday
and hope that all your wishes may come true!

 

Don’t forget to blow out the candles
“all in one blow!”

Last but not least…

We like to wish Dutch Cousin Anita
belated birthday wishes,
as well as Maya the daughter of a friend
of the “Lad Upstairs”
who both celebrated their birthday
on August 11, 2017.

Sorry, for the delay as the Gypsy  Joy site
was in maintenance at the time.

https://blog.udemy.com/wood-carving-for-beginners/

As a youngster Mistress Mommy has dabbled
a bit in carving by hand and
pyrography.
Her Dad and the “nuns” at school taught her.
Mistress Mommy says:

Try it! You may like it, too.

Well, that was my  TTT “Tall Tales Talk”
as Mistress Mommy is busy with the festivity.
I hope you liked it.

Enjoy artist May`s chain carving story
video and website.

The lady carver is a lot of fun.

http://maytree.me.uk/

To all a great weekend!
Tall Tales Talk will be back
on or around Labour Day.

Enjoy the carving fun!

Hullo Everyone today first a bit of
“Book News”.
by Gypsy Joy aka the “Blog Muse”
and
“Mistress Mommy”.

She loves the little garden folks!

garden_hound

“That’s true Little Lion”  🙂

Without further ado now over to “Book News”.

Some years ago I purchased a Canadian-Dutch heritage book:

“Brabanders in Canada” by J. Dortmans.

P1010472

This week I started re-reading it.
I never shun an occasion that brings
a smile and fine memories.

Find the book… (clue) close to Little Lion.

If you do send him an e-mail at

fairytalejoy@yahoo.ca

It brought me to other Dutch “follies”
that bring a painter’s smile and a vision
of large fresh Brabanter eggs
collected for a tasty breakfast,

http://www.sunexotics.com/brabanter.html

and a painter’s vision:

https://www.chickenlove.com/garden-flag-photos

Little Lion would like to herd
a Brabanter clan.

Dark_hen_eats

The little rascal also did his
Charlie Chaplin Dance
when I showed him a pair of Dutch clogs.

Now our sweet, happy companion Shi Poo
wants Dutch clogs from St. Nicholas!

Ethnic_shoe

Why? Because…
he wants to stay in touch with the Dutch!

The little rascal watched the video below
and now he has a fondness for
“Dutch Wooden Shoes.”
So he can fly like the sweet heroine
in the wooden shoe tale. LOL!

Dog_writes

The little bugger started a
Tall-Tall Woof-Woof conversation
to put “Dutch Fancy Clogs” on his
Santa list and to mail it right away,

sint_roof
so the Dutch St.Nicholas can drop by
on December 5th at Santa’s Toy Workshop at,

http://www.claus.com/toyworkshop/index.php

 to deliver that evening a set of
Dutch magic wooden shoes for him,
so they can be delivered by Santa Claus
in Canada on Christmas Eve.

Can you believe it!

Little Lion can be very strong willed!
But hey, he is the apple of my eye…
how can I refuse!

apple_girl

He is also a terrific guardian of our homestead,
and most of the times not demanding.
As well he is a good humored sweetheart.

AND…
A snappy photographer as you see here below when
he snapped his best friend Empress Zoe Labrador.

Little Lion wants the last word!
He is pawing at a quote by his favorite
“Sherlock Holmes.”

When in doubt, sweat it out.

Don’t fall from your chair laughing!

Dear Folks Young and Old 🙂

He-He-He the “Blog Muse” and Little me
like to introduce you to a
Shi Poo – Gypsy T T T.
It’s today’s clue to something new.

I call it a TTT charade. 🙂

The title of this tale tells it all
and not all “ALL”.

dog_popsup

A Shi Poo Clue is never blue
It’s like a rainbow
A kaleidoscope
Of many colours true
Shimmering on a field or forest
Chasing full of zest
Anxiety out of any clue.
*Gypsy Joy*

“BE AWARE”
Ferocious Canines big & small
Tell endless Tall Stories to all.

Interested in TUTU’s?

It starts with a T and ballet dancers
all act out beautiful Tutu Tall Tales. 🙂

You can buy tutu’s in the City of Brampton.
No not in England where some of the
original settlers arrived from in 1853,
but in Ontario, Canada.

Drop by at the Perpetual Bazaar Store at
111 Main Street North.
A hidden gem of handmade items made
and run by artisan seniors and volunteers.

You are welcome to check the store on Facebook.

As well as the City’s website. The city has many parks.

Like to hear or see more about the city
where Prince Charles was presented with a
mixture of his favorite royal “T” brew?

http://bramptonist.com/brampton-tea-shop-receives-royal-approval-from-prince-charles/

I cannot resist to put another “T” here. 🙂

gypsy_woman_caravan

If you can get your hands on a copy
of 1853-2003 “Celebrating 150- Years”
from the Brampton Guardian
you can read all about the settlement
of the Village of Brampton.
Today, The City of Brampton is known
to many in the world as
“The Multicultural Hub to be!”

I must admit Little Lion, I am intrigued
with your TTT’s
Your “Tall Tale Talks” are indeed
pretty Tall.

May I add to it another T?
For your TTT’s are pretty True.
With the Tutu and the royal T brew you
deserve a golden star!
