Please stay in your seats, we will not turn off the seatbelt signs for a year
Tears flow freely from Mr. Slug as he bids an emotional farewell to his holiday friend Ms. Eggnog, who is leaving sometime this week or next for a holiday of her own, which will last until next Thanksgiving in November. Most of Ms. Eggnog's associates have disappeared from the shelves of grocery stores and roadside markets, causing panic buying and hoarding of the popular dairy product. For this reason, Ms. Eggnog has hired a bodyguard and driver to make it to the airport without incident. Ms. Eggnog realizes the importance of teaching the youngsters all about the time honored traditions. She will be visiting a nutmeg farm to teach a group of raw eggs how to grow up right and become the most desired and upstanding members of the refrigerated community, standing tall with shoulders sqaure and proud while they await puchase from excited and happy customers! Lives lived to the fullest, and satisfied bellies full of 'nog!
Hello gentle readers! I am Mrs. Slug the wife of Mr. Slug, every morning I draw the cartoons on my husband's lunch napkin.
At 6:30am, I make a P B & J, a bag of chips, a can of mandarin oranges, Mr. Can Opener, who you shall meet if you follow this blog long enough... spoon, bag of peanuts, a bag of cut vegetables likely to return uneaten, and a Little Debbie Snack Cake, usually a Zebra Cake, plus a thermos of hot coffee. Before Mr. Lunchbox, I employed Mr. Lunchbag, who has been needed a few times when the lunchbox disappeared.
Mrs. Slug enjoys playing Big Band music on drums and vibraphone, she sings on demand, and sells real estate. Both Mr. and Mrs. Slug enjoy the literary works of Author Horatio Alger Jr. Mrs. Slug enjoys nights at home in front of the hearth with her sweetheart, reading aloud or solving a crossword.
Mr. and Mrs. Slug have successfully shot a potato from a cannon across the Yaquina River near their home at Slugs Rest in Toledo, Oregon.
The slugs are proud to be members of the Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce.
