The Jailbird

Oh Peeps. I was minding my own business this morning when there was a knock at the door.
Yes, someone from the POA sent a warrant for the arrest of my precious Pumpkin Topiary Beachy.

She had not done ANYTHING wrong. She was just sitting pretty on the porch minding her own business.

We looked across the street and found the culprits!

Those EVIL JEALOUS BOOITCHES had turned her in!!

The Beachy Porch was devastated. Those ugly girls
were laughing.

NNNOOOOO! Beachy Mimi screamed. Don't take Pumpkin Topiary Beachy! You'll have to drag me, too!

Pumpkin Topiary cried, Beachy Mimi cried, but the bad guys showed no mercy.

In a precious show of solidarity, the rest of the porch followed as she was led away in handcuffs.
The tears were just pitiful.
But Topiary Beachy got her purse, necklace, earrings and tissue and was bravely led away...friends following.
Spider Beachy made one last valiant attempt to stop this injustice to no avail.
On they trudged, down the street.
It broke my heart to see such suffering.
It was a long long slow walk.
They finally came to their destination.
The parting was so painful but finally they were separated by the bars of jail.

My Precious Pumpkin Topiary Beachy. May you Rest In Peace. October 1, 2008-November 2, 2008 Gone Forever.

LOL. You are a riot. I can't imagine what the neighbors thought of you as they watched. Can you be my neighbor? Please?
That one photo of you on the ground really made my day!!

Only you, Beachy Mimi... only you.

Dawn said...

Oh, my, my, my...

What? Had the neighbors stopped talking? They sure will be now! Wish I could have been a fly on the wall as those "ladies" stood peeking from behind their drapes.

Is she really gone forever, or just until 2009?

Maybe I should go check on my scarecrow out on my front porch...

Karen said...

OK, now I feel bad that my pumpkin got fed to the deer at the stroke of midnight Friday. It was that or throw it at the last group of trick or treaters...

RR Mama said...

That was so funny! I bet you are the talk of the street. I can't wait to see what happens at Christmas! Those stinkin' neighbors.

kristen@nosmallthing said...

Um, Okay, so if the neighbors thought you were crazy before, just IMAGINE what they're thinking now!

You are a hoot!

Tammy said...

Well, I almost inhaled my Milk Dud straight into my lungs here. That is SO freakin' hilarious.

If times get tough here I am moving to your neighborhood!

The Bayou Belles and Their Beau said...

You have lost your mind and made me laugh in the process.

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

The time and effort you put into entertaining it! Only you could dream up a scenario like this.

3cookieday said...

That was so funny! Love it!

Loving Our Homeschool said...

That was too, too funny!! I'm sure you gave the nosey neighbors something to talk about all winter long!! LOL


Ann said...

You made my day.
This is hillarious!!!
Should keep the neighbors busy talking for weeks to come.

Amy said...

Could PeepOne have been your sidekick?

peeptwo said...

Oooooooh, "Pumpkin Jail" is so bad. I hope they let sweet Miss Pumpkin keep her gorgeous earrings once they processed her. (You know they put things like that in a manilla envelope when you go to jail).
I hope you didn't scuff your elbows too bad while trying to save her.
Call me if you need bail money. I'll be there.

Susan said...

Hilarious! I can't believe you staged all of those pictures. I am sure you managed to receive at least a few "look at that crazy woman" looks. If only they knew the depths of your creativity!

PeepOne said...

PeepOne here. Yep, sad sad day
at The Beachy House. I don't
think THE NEIGHBOR realizes just
who she is messin with!
Christmas could really be BIG!!!
heh heh!

Jen said...

I'm not sure what's funnier -- you laying on the ground or the sad little parade behind the topiary!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for a laugh-out-loud this morning. You are hysterical.

love you!

Janel@Dandelion Dayz said...

Oh my - you are just hysterical. I soooo needed this laugh this morning!

Audra Krell said...

Hi Mimi,
I hadn't been by in awhile -shame on me! What a treat this was! I am laughing out loud, especially with you trying desperately to save it...thanks for the fun, I could really use it on this post election day.
