Bacon’s Show and Tell


Hi (furry)friends,

Because Granny didn’t schedule

this post,

we almost forgot

Bacon’s Show and Tell

with this month’s theme:

What you always wanted

when you were a child…

but never got.


Well, Granny, this one is on you..

I’m to busy looking

for the only living toy

I ever wanted anyway…


When Granny was four years old,

she had to go to the hospital

for an operation

and when she came out of the hospital…

after ages a week or so…

she was allowed to pick out

a nice toy in the toy store…

And she did…


She was crazy about

this yellow halyard…

but there was only one problem…

she was allowed to pick out something…

but that didn’t meant that she’ll get it…



Instead of it she got something like this,

but in a white colour…

Granny is still in shock remembers

this day like it was yesterday.

She never was told

why she didn’t get the halyard,

but she felt sad

for a very long time.


Better I give her a headbutt now….

and a purr…

– P A W K I S S E S –

forย a

Wonderful Weekend

Have fun ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hello Binky Sherri-Ellen here. I can so relate to Granny! I wanted a train set but never got one. I always wondered if it was thought to be a ‘boys’ toy??? Mind you I had a pair of sixshooters & a holster belt….
    I think that halyard would ahve been alot of fun…better than a *shudders* dolly in a crib….LOL….

      Sherri-Ellen, Granny got a train, when she was about 9 years old. She didn’t took no for an answer anymore, when she got bigger. You and Granny could have played together cowboys with the shooters…hehehe..maybe entering a cowboy movie with indians and the train…that doll could have been the prisoner..she was in a kind of prison already anyway…and sweet Nylablue and me could have been your horses…What you said, Granny. No I’m not getting out of my mind, I only have a fantasy running ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for sharing your story with us, Sherri-Ellen and Nylablue. You get some extra Pawkisses for that ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

    All the other kids had a particular doll. Everyone played in dollhouses with them…I had to use a borrowed one or a “too small – not right” one. For my birthday I was promised a doll – and pointed to the one I wanted, but my mom bought the one she wanted – a one over a foot tall. She made dresses for it and complained she spent all that money and I didn’t appreciate it. Then she complained I didn’t play with the others kids – ignoring the fact that they wouldn’t let me play ’cause I didn’t have a doll. Sigh.
    So I just went out and rode my brother’s bike and caught tadpoles and frogs….and she got mad about that, too.
    Luckily, there’s RC Cat to make sure sure things are done properly here now. (giggles – paw waves!

      Oh, Philmouse, that’s heartbreaking! Granny and I have to shed a tear with you now. I’m so glad you have RC Cat to be with you and to love you just the way you are…just like Granny has me now ๐Ÿ™‚ Extra Pawkisses for telling your story โค

    As much as Mom L loved her dolls, she also enjoyed playing with her older brothers dump trucks and such. Bet’cha Granny can find one of those old vintage halyard’s on eBay!!!

    There were so much more emphasis on “gender appropriate” toys back in those days Little Binky. Hope that you found your mousie!

    It’s too bad your grannie didn’t get the toy she really wanted.

    A sign of the times – “No! That’s a boys toy!” Sigh…. When my daughter was about four years old she wanted a toy pistol. Her father said the above quote and I was horrified – a pistol! But eventually I got her one. She ran around practising her quick draw technique for a few weeks and shooting around corners like you saw in all the best cowboy movies of the time. Eventually it was put away and never played with again. Now she wouldn’t hurt a fly [literally!] and is a gentle souled pacifist ๐Ÿ™‚ I think she played that out of her system and I sometimes wonder what would have happened had we continued to deny her that opportunity?

      Granny had a toy pistol too, Pauline, but that was years later, when she didn’t took NO for an answer anymore..MOL… You’re so right, it’s not up to the pawrents to decide and it certainly doesn’t say anything about changing gender, of getting into trouble later, because of it. I think there’s no toy needed for that anyway ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for sympathizing with us. You’ll get an Extra Pawkiss for that ๐Ÿ™‚

    The toy Granny wanted looks like a great cat toy. You could bat those hanging things back and forth.

      Aug 02, 2014 @ 11:14:57

      Wow..we’ve got an expert over here…MOL…I haven’t thought of it yet, but you bring up some ideas for me, dear Bongo. Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend my furriend ๐Ÿ™‚ *Grannyyyy, I have a wish…*

    We are sorry that Granny never got her toy. You are sweet to give her head butts to help her feel better about it. Thank you for following Chancy’s blog. Hugs and nose kisses

      She needed it, Mumsy and Chancy, but she played with the halyard when my twofeet brother got one. That was 39 years later…well, better late than never, as I would say ๐Ÿ˜‰ Chancy, we thought we had subscribed on your bloggie weeks ago, but never got updates and yesterday Granny saw that we hadn’t. Granny can be so confused sometimes…she says hormones ๐Ÿ˜€ Pawkisses ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a beautifully framed picture! So unfair when stupid adults take it upon themselves to know better than the child what the child wants – or give something that THEY would have wanted.

      Aug 03, 2014 @ 10:03:48

      That’s right, Col, they always make choices for you…but Granny played with the halyard of my little twofeet brother, so she had a chance to play with her dreamtoy anyway…even it was 43 years later ๐Ÿ˜€ Pawkisses for a Happy Sunday ๐Ÿ™‚

      That’s to kind, Kitties. She had the chance to play with a halyard when my twofeet brother got one…only that was 43 years later…MOL ๐Ÿ˜€ Pawkisses for a Happy Sunday ๐Ÿ™‚

    aaww – my poor friend ((Hogs and Snout Kisses)). Perhaps we should all find these toys and have one HUGE slumber party? I bet that would be fun ๐Ÿ™‚ XOXO – Bacon
    P.S. Thanks for participating my sweet friend. I really appreciate that!
