The Question

Well here I am, off on an adventure
in the name of Love.
Allred has asked me to find his
love Nellie and ask her a
very important question.
I have been told NOT to come
back without a Yes.
Now on behalf of my "Buddy" (yes I said it)
Allred, I must tell those of you who have suggested
he should do this himself, that he still
suffers from knee injury that he got
while on his month long walk-a-bout
Last year (November and December)
So travel at this time is a little painful and he
is hoping to be all better by
Valentines Day.
So anyway, I am off to the far reaches of
Canada and boy is it cold.
I am not sure I can make this trip on
my own so have asked a friend to help me out.
Check it friend Vidock from
The Poupounette's has volunteered
to take me there.  He is the fastest horse
I have ever met.  We are almost flying over
the cold snowy countryside and should be arriving
in minutes.   I sure hope Nellie is home 
Ah, we are here Vidock.  I can't believe
how smooth the ride has been.   And if I say
so myself, we look pretty good together.
So Nellie, What say Ye?
Will ya go.
Please answer soon, Vidock and I
cannot return without a YES.
and I am allergic to roses
and the stem has three thorns
on it that have punctured my tongue.

We're happy you had help. You might have ended up with a sore knee as well.

We just see from Nellie's comment that the answer is YES, so go home, warm up and Allred owes you some treats.

Can I just say that if Nellie turns him down, I think KC would be more than a match for Allred?! Deccy x

Sarge said...

Hey Bert!
Wow, way to take one for the team! Allred owes you big-time, but I bet that horsey ride was fun. Chilly, but fun. I can't wait to see Nellie's answer and I assume you're taking your lovely Charlotte.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Ranger said...

Bert. Pop on over to see me today. I have something for you.

The Army of Four said...

Well, OUCH! Is your tongue ok? And beware of those allergies, dude! My mom had some whack-o allergic reaction over Christmas and was zoned out on Benedryl for over a week. Are you sure Allred isn't just tooling you into doing this for him?
I've never met Vidock; he sure looks like a nice guy!
Play bows,

Ruby said...

YEA ALLRED!! You gots a YES!! That was very cool of you Bert! You are the bestest brudder ever!

klahanie said...

Aha and an adventure in the name of love! True romance doth blossom, me thinks. And when I've sorted out Britain, I shall be visiting Canada, speaking of far reaches.

Peace and love be with thee all, Penny the Jack Russell dog and the next 'Paw Minister' of Britain! :)
