The Reasons

Another day, another envelope and missive from Kyla. OK, let’s see this one.

To all-

I suppose all of you are wondering about my selection of Kismet. Blogville not only needs a bird blogger, but no pirate story is complete without a parrot. Let’s examine the options:

Kaci- She’s a sweetheart The problem is that she doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. We need a certain edge to this blog.

Kali- She is all play and no work. The blog would be ignored while Kali was outside trying to snatch moths out of the air with her mouth.

Kismet- That feisty bird certainly has an edge. She’s also industrious.  I’ve given her my personal copy of “The Curmudgeon’s Handbook”. I’ve also been training her for the last three months for the job. It will be like “Kyla II”. Who better to parrot me than a parrot? Kismet has a bird-eye view from her crow’s nest (I’m on a roll here) and will chronicle your doings. Both of you will be able to ask to make a post and Kismet is supposed to let you do it occasionally. Kali, you’ll have to spare everyone by failing to post your boring hunting stories.

Kismet will start soon and I’ve even taught her how to AROOOO, although it took me a while to break her of the squawking habit.

SAM_1606Hey Kismet, wipe that smirk off your beak. You’re a sore winner.

  1. Well there you have it. I think this is an awesome idea. Fits the bill very well.

    Have a perfect Aroooo day. 🙂

  2. Well then…. there it is…
    Let us make this OFFICIAL then…
    WELCOME TO BLOGVILLE KISMET… We are sure that the other two couldn’t hold a FEATHER to YOUR words of WISDOM and your Take Over of the Blog has been well planned for… We will ENJOY HAVING you around town and… taking us under you wing.

  3. Alrighty then! Kismet – this will be the beginning of a beautiful friendship between CAT and BIRD. At least I hope so! Welcome to blogville officially.

    Hugs, Sammy

  4. KISMET you’re the BIRD of the hour.
    Sweet William The Scot

  5. Yeah Kismet, I’m looking forward to your perspective on things….so to speak! Aroooooooo

  6. Makes perfect sense and Sam & I are looking forward to your stamp on things. Welcome to Blogville, can’t wait to see how high you soar!

  7. yes, Kismet is Kylas parrot and I so agree for the pirate thingy. I just thought my mom could be a stand in, but she is just an ole hen, not a parrot. I guessed it that the wise scottie lady made a reallly smart decision. Chapeau!

  8. Welcome Kismet! We are looking forward to your first Aroooo.

  9. We accept the decision of Kyla. She was within her rights to name a predecessor and we will happily learn from Kismet. Our knowledge of birds is very small and we look forward to having a learning experience.

    • I’ll be an unbiased reporter about what the two pups are doing. If they had control, you would have heard how one cured cancer and the other brought about world peace.

  10. Hehehe A Pawsome Legacy from Kyla,And I can see the need for a parrot pirate in Blogville being a Pirate Bunny and all that!Can’t wait to see what you get up to Kismet,xx Speedy

  11. Hello there Kismet! It’s good to meet you, Kali and Kaci. We are also reading through the post of Kyla. We are excited to read about your adventures, Kismet. Welcome to blogville!

  12. Me and Nellie think Kayla made a good choice. Long may her legacy live on.

  13. We know that parrot squawk around here….all the parrots we have. Kyla certainly thought long and hard. We think she did well! So welcome aboard Kismet.

    • Not only did Kyla think about it-she did something about it. She was afraid that I might be too feisty. She taught me that my birditide was similar to a TerrierTude.

  14. There’s talk that Kismet prints out some blogs and uses them to line the floor of her cage. We need to get to the, uh, bottom of that before we can be comfortable with an avian joining the noble order of canine bloggers. /curmudgeon

  15. I’s gonna accept Kyla’s decishun, I’s just curious if she wuz on da pain meds when she made it.

    BOL! Just kiddin Kismet, and welcome to Blogville. I usually bark at burdz, but I’s never seen one like you before, so I’s not sure what to do. Ya are a purty color.

  16. Hmmmm…. I thinks dat da burd wuz usin’ sum kinda burd voodoo on Kyla to git control of da blog… evfur seen da movie “The Birds”??? Pawsonally, it seems kinda burd-brained to me…
    That said, welcome to Blogville, Kismet…why not a burd? We gots pigs writin’ blogs (instead of bein’ yummy bacon), bunnies, crabs, all kinds of food items writin’ blogs and not evfun includin’ recipes!! Why not an inedible burd? Although I’m sure some of da kitties would try to finds out how inedible you is… bol, bol!!

  17. A Birdie Blog, yeah! That’s gonna be great funs!
    Hello Mr Birdie, I is very pleased to meet you
    Loves and licky kisses

    • I’m definitely a female. If I were a male I would have had a destiictive black ring around my neck. It doesn’t really matter, Kyla taught me how to be a curdmugeon.

  18. Perfect. It’s all perfect. In fact, I’d love to see if Kismet can ride on the back of one of the dogs, like Gertrude rode on Winn-Dixie in the book/movie. That’d be awesome.

  19. I think it’s perfect, and it’s going to be great fun! I look forward to what 2015 brings!!

  20. Pawfect!!! Wait…that doesn’t quite work for you…hmmmm…wells, I’ll have to work on that one..☺
    Anyhu, Kismet, you are gonna do a FABulous job, I just knows it. And the Pirate thingie..yups, we GOTS to have a parrot for the Pirate stories! And since you likes the margaritas…nothin’ could be betters! Sounds like you’re gonna need a few watchin’ overs Kaci and Kali! BOL

  21. This should be a fun adventure!

  22. Wooooooooweeeeeeeee! I’m all about Kismet taking over. Kyla’s no dummy. And neither are Kali and Kaci. Why should they do all the work? Smart move.

  23. Just catching up now, glad to hear the spirit and the tradition lives on – bird puns and all!
