A Short Post

For his 200th blog post Mr Whirly ran an 'undulatory' competition. I entered and my name was first out of his hat so I won a prize!!!!!
.

It may look like a short post but it's so much more and I am very pleased with it.

Other news: At my request Z has named a cow after me! And you can see her here. I am extremely chuffed. No field or farmyard is complete without a Scarlet.
Further news: Mrs P is back and is taking requests.
More news: Monty Python is 40 and I think this Youtube ties this short post together quite nicely...



I am no longer sulking.

Oh, I want to win a prize! Do you think I should hold a contest for myself, in which I am the sole entrant?

Your cow is very beautiful, by the way.

Leah said...

And apparently I am first, as I'm up at the unholiest hour of all!

eroswings said...

Congratulations Scarlet!!! On both winning a prize and having the loveliest, prettiest cow named after you!

That definitely puts a smile on a face!

Scarlet-Blue said...

Leah: Good Morning! I'm also getting into this contest malarky and I'm thinking of running a contest myself.
She is a beautiful cow isn't she?!

Whirlochre said...

Nice to see you've somewhere tastefully appointed to display your new trinket.

Honk often, Mistress of Smut...

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Swings: I know! It all stopped me sulking and brightened me up no end.
The short post is actually rather groovy and makes a very interesting noise when you blow it.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Whirly: Oh don't you worry, I've been honking like a creature possessed.

Scarlet-Blue said...

I've now got to do a bit of running around and will be back later.

Ah, safe to come back? Being a man I had hidden because you were sulking. I naturally assumed it was my fault (I've been trained that way). Now you're back the sun has come out and is making the autumnal trees around my office beautiful in your honour

mago said...

Cows are (mostly) friendly, have wounderful eyes and they smell good. But what did you win?

Clyde said...

But Miss Scarlet, you are always a winner.
Your bovine has lovely eyes
See, it's even a pretty cow

The Unbearable Banishment said...

Here's an excellent article on Monty Python that ran in the New York Times this past Sunday. Lots of interesting insider tidbits.

lovely, sugar! absolutely lovely! xoxo

Chairman Bill said...

Looks like the bucket we used to hang over the ship's side with a thermometer in it to get the sea temperature.

fairyhedgehog said...

There, and I thought it was a kaleidoscope.

Have fun with your tube, Scarlet. That's two competitions that you've one (that I know of).

xl said...

Wonderful news all around!

I hope you've met Scarlet or have plans to do so. Photo op!

Dave said...

I am just back home having been to visit Scarlet. She attempted to lick me all over, but I asked her to refrain as it is unseemly.

Then I went to see Z's cow.


The last sentence is true. She was eating hay, whilst I was building a wall.

underOvr (aka The U) said...

Congratulations Scarlet!

I must say that I've enjoyed the humor of Monty Python.

KAZ said...

So is your short post a sort of musical instrument? It's an awesome prize - and a cow too.
Is there anything more a girl could ask for?

MJ said...

A cow walks into a bar

Z said...

Just to clarify Dave's misleading comment, Scarlet the cow was eating hay. I like hay, but I'd just finished breakfast.

Pat said...

Is that the prize? What is it- I'm flummoxed.

Lulu LaBonne said...

What will you be doing with this post, will you carry it around all the time and be known as the 'Log Lady'?

Kerrie said...

Hi hun, that short post is a bit like a long weight I once had.
P.S David says he had a great time xx

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Jekand: It is safe to come out from behind the curtains! Just about.
And flattery will get you everywhere.

Mr Mags: It is a duck quacker. You blow into it and it attracts ducks. And chickens. And it's also had an interesting affect on my next door neighbours.

Mr clyde: She is a pretty cow isn't she?
And a cow has never stood on me, which is good.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr banish: I've been watching the documentaries. The cartoon bits used to frighten me when I was a child.
It's funny how we grow into what we used to ridicule isn't it? I'm trying hard not to.

Savvy: Thank you!

Mr Chairman: It may have more then one use. I'm looking forward to trying it on the seagulls next time I'm at the coast.

Fairyhedgehog: I'm doing very well this year... I didn't have time to photograph the chocolate - it was gone to quickly.

Mr XL: Now there's a thought and a very good reason to visit Norfolk.

Dave: Goodness me Dave, but you have a vivid imagination!!
Just make sure you keep her udders warm.

Mr U: Yep, I was brought up on a diet of Monty Python, Ripping Yarns and Spike Milligan... although I was sooooo young that a lot of it went over my head.

Kaz: It's a quacker for attracting ducks. But I've only managed to get it to fart so far...

BEAST said...

Well congratulations
Scarlet will look lovly with a few roasties and a yorkshire....yum yum

Scarlet-Blue said...

MJ: So I even have a new bar to frequent! I won't hog all the space.

Z: Thank you for the clarification! Dave can be so sloppy sometimes...

Pat: It's a quacker Pat. You blow into it and it makes duck noises... well that's what I'm using it for...?!

Lulu: I think you have psychic ability. I swear it! But I think I will be using it as a key ring... and instead of whistling like Lauren Bacall I will quack like Daffy Duck...

Kerrie: Ha ha... I'm not giving David back!

Mr Beastie: How could you?!!! *Slaps Mr Beastie*

chimesey said...

Hey

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Chimney: What?????

mago said...

Now you'll never walk alone anymore. But be careful with the seagulls.

Gadjo Dilo said...

Your cow is indeed very beautiful - such a pretty face. What is that prize (standing on the table) though?

Dave said...

'Dave can be so sloppy sometimes...'

Nothing a tissue can't clean up though.

Donn w/2nz said...

You deserve to win and being bovinated is a huge honour, especially amongst the Masai.

There is a theatrical release celebrating Monty on Oct 22..this is the kind of important stuff that you'd know if you were on Facebook my Dear.

Mrs P..oh how I wish that she'd "get" me. She is so smart and funny...I mean erudite and sartorial...but I always turn into a tongue-tied schoolboy in her presence and forget my place.

Pouncer, sind Sie immer in meinem herzen...your unrequited acknowledgement makes me want to be a better blogger.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Mags: Seagulls and slugs, along with word verification code, are the bane of my life.

Gadj: It's a quacker! You blow into it and it quacks... but so far I've only got it to fart. You'd be surprised at how many times a day that the ability to make this noise comes in handy.

Dave: You should also wear a bib.

Mr Coppens: Mrs P is on Facebook! Give her a poke and see what happens, I'm sure she'll appreciate it.
I can't do Facebook, for loads of reasons!

xl said...

"Are my comments working?"

Yes. I always find them informative and useful.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr XL: Ha! You caught me!
Mr Jimmy is having a problem leaving a comment here so I was just checking!

Jimmy Bastard said...

At first I thought it was some sort of Pagan marital aid, but then I succumbed to the fact that it was obviously just your weekend bong.

One can never be too sure when it comes to the delightful wee Scarlet woman.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Jimmy: Welcome back! You have been sorely missed.
I think you're filling my head with some good ideas!

omchelsea said...

I would like a prize cow, please.
