It is often wiser to just keep your mouth shut.
Debbie Adams painted the giant wombat cake Twink baked for the Wombat Day 2012 celebration on October 22. Debbie’s original painting of the Wombat Day cake can be seen on her art blog.
running is good !
It works for me!!
Maybe Winky can slow him down, with wine gum under the shoe.
That might work. Next time someone is going to chase me I’ll try it.
This is such a great painting deb,
and is one of my many favourites
of yours 🙂 It’s brilliant 🙂
That wombat cake of Deb’s almost looks too good to eat. Almost.
Never too good to eat, Winky. Are you feverish?
No, it was just a little spell. It’s okay, I’m over it!
I agree with Red do you need to sit down and rest, you sound a bit off balance to me Winky, I do hope that you are not coming down with a fever 🙁
No, after eating Deb’s wombat cake, I’m feeling fine again!
I’m glad to hear that, because I was just wondering what end we had to take you temperature at.
What?? Stay away from Nurse Debbie!
Tell you what, we’ll just have you drink this extra tall chocolate milkshake, which is sure to bring down any possible fever…Phew, glad that’s settled.
Cici!…Go potty and go to bed.
You don’t have to tell me twice to drink a milkshake! No matter who tells me!
How about three times?…Brought one made special just for you, Winky!
A Thanksgiving milkshake!
You guys polished it off in a hurry though. 🙂
Good cake never goes to waste around here.
What should we bake next? I know…brownies!
I’ll be glad to make brownies, but you won’t be able to have any Cici. I have to make you special choco treats.
Poor Cici, no chocolate! I’m glad I’m not a dog!
I know, its not fair that I can’t have any.
I guess you have to settle for things like Milkbones and stuff.
Yes, that what she gets…little pieces because she is so small. But she does get doggie ice cream.
Doggie ice cream sounds good!
Thanks Andro. It was a hoot to paint. 🙂
The Lethal Arts of Wombania, that sounds a lot like one of my drawings but I think the wine gum method works well too 🙂
Are you saying your arts are lethal?
Only if you get a paper cut.
I didn’t know a paper cut could kill you.
They are lethal if you
don’t wear a blindfold 🙁
But then you can’t see them!
He who turns and runs away will live to run another day!
That’s for sure!
and I love The cake 🙂 🙂 🙂
have a great week you guys 🙂
🙂 🙂 🙂
Hi Cat, it is great
to see you here again 🙂
It’s always wiser to keep your mouth shut and isn’t it interesting it usually is someone else that gets you in trouble.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
I’ve been told to keep my mouth shut lots of time!
So, you are just passing on the wisdom…
Seemed like a good way to stay alive!
You are so full of it today, I mean so full of logic today Winky 🙂
I always try to be!
Yes and nine times out of
ten you pass the bench mark 🙂
I don’t usually pass the kitchen, though. Not without stopping.
Get him right in the eye Winky. You only have one try so make it count…
I’ll try for the eye!
Wastes the fewest wine gums.
If you’re a good shot. Otherwise it’s scatter and run!
I will ask Binky to fashion you a wine gum shooter, it works a bit like a pea shooter only you have to blow harder 🙂
I’m be more tempted to inhale the wine gums!
Yes well you only fire the icky one’s 🙂
Like broccoli flavored ones?
Run…Run like the wind! 🙂
Kind of a slow wind, but I’ll run!
Run is circles, that always messes up the bigger guys….I know because I do it.
I’ll try that next time. I hope I don’t get dizzy and fall down though!
You don’t want to stand in one spot and run in circles…that will make you dizzy. Run is circles all around them, but you got to go really really fast like me….then you’ll get extra hungry too.
Oh, okay. I’m already extra hungry just thinking about it!
It really works when they trip over you. Then, you can get away.
I just hope I don’t trip over me first!
There is a lot of tripping going on around here is it still the holidays? 🙂 if so have a pancake and a few milkshakes on everyone here 🙂
Holiday eating season has officially begun!
I’ll take those pancakes and milkshake!
Pancakes for everyone!
And double for me!
How about triple for you, Winky?
I’ll have to think about that. . . No I don’t!
I hope that there is enough turkey lef overt for me, oh and don’t forget to give me your helping of sprouts 🙂
Don’t worry, I won’t forget to give you all my brussel sprouts! And Fraz’s, too!
I ate some today smothered with cheese…they were good that way. But don’t worry, Winky, I won’t offer you any. But will leave here, leaving you with a chocolate pie topped with chocolate whipped cream…chilled too.
That chocolate pie was way better than any sprouts could ever be! Even topped with cheese. I wonder what brussel sprouts topped with chocolate and whipped cream might taste like?
That’s it, tell him the other guy can fight and run. 😆
Well he was too big for me to fight!
I’m sure he was…so running away is the smart thing to do. 🙂
Yeah, and the wine gums distracted him!
Yes, that is a good idea. They’d probably stop to eat them so you can get further away too. 🙂
I know I would! Then I’d probably forget about chasing them.
Why would you want to chase them when you can stand still and eat wine gums?
Exactly! Eating wine gums is a lot better than running.
I’m with you one that one! 😉
Come to think of it, I have some with me that I’m happy to share with you, Winky. I’m passing them to you now…enjoy it with this chocolate milkshake.
Cici, I’m getting a bit tire of leaving a comment and finding out you never logged out….naughty, naughty.
And drinking your chocolate shake to boot!
It’s an identity confusion! And I’m all confused! But I’ll take the wine gums and milkshake, no matter who’s offering them.
Sorry about all the confusion Winky. I just didn’t know that Cici was still logged in when I’d leave a comment. But she would want you to have anything I offer you to eat or drink.
That’s okay. I’m usually confused anyway. And I’m sure Cici would give me milkshakes, too. If she could.
Winky’s eyes are priceless in the second panel.
Thanks, Deb. Winky was a bit surprised to hear Fraz’s defense.
You certainly pulled the look for that off well.
I had a good model.
I hope it is not a self-portrait…
No, he used me as the model. I’m usually a bit surprised.
and hungry! 🙂
A half sucked winegum is even better. Especially if it lands in the hair 😉
Or maybe even a wine gum machine gun!
YES Winky. Do you know where I could get one? Awesome!!!!
Andro could grab you one. I gave him a machine gun…
Do you think Andro could make it shoot wine gums instead? We need one for me, one for Loon, one for Fraz. . .
I have machine guns for everyone, and the telescopic sights means that we will never miss the targets 🙂 As a bonus we all get some choco fudge cake and a triple lime and lemon milkshake 🙂 And curdling is not an option so drink it down in one hefty gulp 🙂
Okay! I think we might need to have some target practice just to make sure, though.
This is going to be AWESOME!!!!!
Yeah, and dessert afterwards, too!
If we made a dessert gun we could shoot it into each other’s mouths. Or better still a cake grenade!!!!
You’re just full of great ideas! We could also have a silly-string gun that shoots chocolate string instead! And a whipped cream cannon!
OMG, a whipped cream cannon!!!!!! Yummy
Fighting has never been so tasty!
Those whipped cream cannons can be dangerous in the wrong hands Loon so be careful 🙁
I’m certain there’s nothing but crumbs left from that lovely baked Wombanian treat!!!
You are very very right! It was delicious, though!
You, Fraz, Dink and Andro did a really good job at polishing that off too. 🙂
That’s one thing we’re really really good at!
I’d say, I had to ask Twink if the she washed the oven is was so clean.
I don’t let anything go to waste!
I’ll have to remember to invite you over whenever I bake. 😉
That was my comment too….Yes, Cici again.
I thought maybe Cici was into baking now. That would be a very good dog!
No, she into sniffing the air during the baking process. She can almost tell me when the baking is done. 🙂
Doggies have good noses! Cici could be your baker’s assistant.
Cici can you bite those Zombies ankles they are trying to raid our pancake supplies 🙂
Yes, Uncle Andro, I’d be glad to do that. We don’t want the Zombies eating any of the pancakes.
Can I have a choco-bone, please?
Winky, Dink and Fraz always help me to polish off the goodies 🙂 All for one and one for all is our motto 🙂
And we’re pretty good at polishing off treats, too!
And you all do a good job of it too!
Thanks! I work at it!
Great exercise isn’t it?
Eating is definitely my kind of exercise!
It keeps the jaw in great shape for chewing wine gums.
And it helps stretch the stomach, too!
Room for more goodies!
This exercise works out great!
Yep! My stomach is in pretty good shape!
Glad to hear it, because I got a ton of leftovers I want eaten up.
I’m your Wombie! I’ll have those leftovers taken care of in no time!
Woah, and for a minute there I thought Wombania was gonna go all fight scene!
I’d rather eat and run than fight!
Sometimes I wish my family would eat and run. 😉 🙂
I’ll come over and eat and run if you’d like.
You’re just in time for dinner too. Come on over and fix yourself a plate and you don’t have to stick around for small talk either. 😉
Sounds like the perfect dinner to me!
Me too. I never was one for talking much after dinner, or during dinner.
Cici!!! This is the last time I’m going to tell you to log out when your done.
I’m all for eating at dinner time. No sense wasting time talking!
Cici was really naughty tonight!
Kind of hard to talk when your mouth is full.
Yes, she was, but I forgive her. 🙂
Better to eat than to talk, that’s for sure!
And there less chance of choking on the food.
Or choking on your words!
I’d rather choke on my food…lol
I’d rather not choke on anything!
Run, Winky, Run! 🙂
I’m running, I’m running!
I wasn’t! I’ll try running in big circles.
Now you got it, and bark violently too….that makes them nervous.
People would probably run away from me if I started barking!
I bark at them if they try to go out the door.
Don’t remind me.
Do they leave you all alone in the house? Well I guess you aren’t alone with Casie and the cat, though.
Sometimes they do, but not very often. The cat lives outside all of the time because she wants to eat me…no way will Mom and Dad allow that to happen.
Sometimes Dad has do go outside to work on the truck or in the yard, so I bark when he tries to leave.
When we are at the camper in the summer there is a big fridge outside in a building on the deck cos the one is the camper is not so big. When mom goes out there to get something out of the freezer I bark at her too, but not as loud or as long as when Daddy does out the door. But sometime I get shot with a squirt gun so I’m not doing it as much as I use to.
Maybe you’re worried that mommy and daddy are going to leave you for ever? They wouldn’t do that. When I get worried, I like to eat. It makes me feel better.
I think that might be my trouble. They’re never gone for long, but I never know about the next time.
Maybe chewing on a squeaky toy or something might help you to not think about it.
I doubt the bully will give chase after being distracted with delicious wine gums!
That’s what I’m hoping for! I know it would distract me.
I would stop fighting someone for some wine gum. I can be bribed.
I’ll give you some wine gums now just to be safe, then.
A well aimed wine gum can be pretty lethal
To me it can be pretty tasty!
If you can train them to sit still while you throw them, you may be able to convince them to lie down whilst you run away.
That would be a good idea, but I’m not sure if I could train bullies to do that. Maybe Bully dogs.
Maybe if the wine gums have a very high alcohol content & Winky can throw them into the bully’s mouth he may get too drunk to chase you.
Next time I’ll soak my wine gums in wine first. That might do it!
Running is the better part of valor.
And the quicker part of it, too!
Good run is not bad 😉
I could probably use the exercise!
Okay, you convinced me!
I knew I would. 🙂
Deb i loved that painting, you are super fun 🙂
love n hugs 🙂
Welcome back, Soma! We missed you!
Hi Aunty Soma!. I’ve missed you!
Woof, woof, woof!!
Thanks Soma, it was fun to paint. Welcome back, you’ve been sorely missed!
That was hilarious Peter. 🙂
I am enjoying it too 🙂
But one in the eye is all it takes.
I’ll try for the eye next time!
Who are you talking to Fraz?
A big mean bully!
Fraz call me next time i will try some kick boxing on the bully..i am not good at it at all and may be will sprain my muscles but will try no matter what
You’re a good friend, Soma!
Thanks for the education. I’ve never heard it called wine gum and now I know what it’s really used for!
Wine gums are the best candy! I normally just eat them. But in an emergency, they can be used for defence!
That should work. 🙂
It usually does!
Loved the lethal weapon! Hate to run into Winky meandering down a dark alley.
nom nom nom Wombie cake! Now if I could only find wine gums here in Nevada it could cut down on the lawsuits.
Funny, the neighbors are not amused when I try running from their kids. While throwing water balloons. Filled with boiling water.
Some people have no sense of humor.
Some people don’t know what fun is. Maybe if you filled the balloons with chocolate syrup instead. No, I guess that’d just attract them. I know it’d attract me.
that would be the problem. Only a sociopathic whack job wouldn’t follow the rich fabulousness of chocolate.
Yeah, you need to fill the balloons with something that’s the anti-chocolate. I know, brussel sprouts!
omg 😯 how ridiculous are people how can they not love it when you throw water balloons at their kids and run !!
boiling water.. that makes it super fun
So true. My middle name is fun! Well it would be if I had it legally changed.
Then you’d be Miss FunR!
Hey throwing wine gums and running is one of the best survival tactics ..while others ponder over why wine gums we can be miles away
Exactly! And once they taste the wine gums, they’ll be so overcome by their greatness that they’ll forget to chase us!
What’s a wine gum?
The most incredibly delicious candy ever invented! It’s sort of like a ju jube. But chewier and better tasting. And more fruity.
Fraz talking smack to the good ol’ US again I see 😉 I’m from the US but not living there currently. Could you please throw some wine gums my way? 🙂
Only if you threaten us!
All you have to do is to come to one of our parties and you can have all the wine gums you can eat!
Wine gum in the face! That’s the worst!
But wine gums in the mouth isn’t so bad!
Runnin is safer…after you throw the wine gums at them!!
That’s what I think, too!
You can just invite him to Thanksgivin’ dinner and that will win him over.
Happy Thanksgivin’ Y’all.
I hope you can have a great Thanksgiving at home, Bo. All the Wombies here are sending you good wishes.
Good idea to not make them mad in the first place. And I used to use clear plastic balls out of hackysacs, that way they can’t see it once it hits the floor so no evidence, not that they can see at least.
I’ll have to remember that trick!
