Sir Poops and Hair Ball: Winner, Winner, Chocolate Dinner and BWFF

IMG_0256SPAL: Hi, nice people. Today, stupid and I are announcing the winner from the cover reveal, The Partners’ Progeny, while I snuggle in these luscious pillows. Mmmmm….

The Partner's Prodigy

HB: It will be out July 1, 2013. You’re a pansy, pansy.

SPAL: Anyway, we wanted to thank the following for helping do the reveal:

Alex J. Cavanaugh

Michelle Wallace

Donna K. Weaver

Julie Flanders

Norma Beishir

William Kendall

Eve Gaal

Lorelei Bell

Gary Pennick

Joyce Lansky

HB: We did a drawing, too, for a 10 dollar Amazon card. Norma Beishir won. Yay for Miss Norma!

The boys clap their paws together and jump up and down!

SPAL: Before we go, we have a story to tell you.

HB: Yeah. About the two-legged BWFF.IMG_0251

SPAL: It must’ve been a Thursday evening not long ago.

HB: Yeah. Mummsy took us out for out night-night poops and pees.

SPAL: It had to be 10 o’clock. It was before school let out for the summer.

HB: There were three little boys roaming our street. Mummsy said they couldn’t have been any older than seven.

SPAL: So Mummsy asked if their Mummsy knew where they were.

HB: Yeah. That’s all Mummsy said.

SPAL: The little boys said nothing and we went home to get ready for night-night.

HB: Yeah. And we got our bedtime chewy-chews and Mummsy sang to us, gave us some lovey-love, and closed our door.

SPAL: And everything was quiet until, kaplunk, bang, slam, kaplunk!

HB: Yeah. It had me very upset. I thought I was going to have to kill someone.

SPAL: Ha! Anyway, Mummsy came for our help and we all ran down stairs. Someone was kicking and punching our front door.

HB: Yeah.

SPAL: Mummsy opened the door to a very mad BWFF. One hand was balled in a fist and the other one held a beer. Behind this person stood a red headed chick-that’s what Mummsy called her.

And Munmmsy says, “Can I help you, ladies?”

BWFF says, “Who do you think you are asking my son if I know where he is? That’s none of you f&%$#@! business!”

Mummsy looks at them both, while stupid here goes outside to get a belly rub from the enemy. And Mummsy says, “It’s a bit late for little boys to be outside without their parents.”

HB: Nah-uh.

SPAL: Did, too. Anyway, the BWFF starts to yell at my Mummsy, and I stood firm beside her baring my teeth, growling. Nobody hurts my Mummsy. SO Mummsy says, “Why don’t you ladies go home and sleep off your beers.”

By that time, stupid ran back into the house, and Mummsy shut and locked the door. But that BWFF says, “I’m going to call the cops on you for harassment,” while she’s punching and kicking our door.

And Mummsy says, “You do that and have a blast while you do it,” through the door.

HB: Yeah. But that bad old BWFF moved out this weekend.

SPAL: Thank God. The whole street is glad she’s gone. That’s our story. Anybody out there have a crazy neighbor story?

Before we go, we’d like to tell you that Authors for Oklahoma have their first bundles up over at Writers for Mass Distraction. This is a giveaway. Make a 10 dollar donation to the Crowrise link, your name goes into a drawing, and pick which bundle you’d like. This will run from June 25th to July 15th.

Lots of licks!


  1. I don't think I can top that! Stupid parents. I feel sorry for the boys.

    1. I did, too. It seems that the mom needed looking after than the boys.

  2. Greetings Sir Poops and Hair Ball,

    What an amazing list of people involved in the cover reveal and a big yay to Miss Norma! :)

    That crazy neighbour was well out of line with your Mummsy! We've had some very nasty neighbours, but we sorted them out by confusing them with niceness.

    All good ruff, I mean, stuff, here and your links are duly noted. Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star has ordered me to share this, yep, even on 'Farcebark'!

    Penny's human,

    Gary :)

  3. Yea Norma ! Woo Hoo !

    I often wonder why people have children. You can tell they don't want them and have no use for them beyond their money worth.
    I feel so bad for the children. They haven't a chance.

    SR and HB are doing a great job keeping you safe and loved.

    cheers, parsnip

  4. Congrats to Norma and wow, the neighborhood will be nicer now!

    1. Its a lot more quiet now. I'm not the only one she's exploded on over her child.

  5. Congrats, Norma! yay!

    I've got too many nutty stories, and they're mostly about my family (yes, some were that bad!)

    Good for you for sticking to your guns, Shelly, and boys. What's that joke? There goes the neighborhood? Well, you might have got it back!

  6. Congrats to Norma!

    That's a rotten neighhbour!

  7. Lorelei: Its definitely quiet now.

    Sir Wills: Rotten, indeed. But she has now left.

  8. How awful! Glad you guys were there to protect your mummsy, though it sounds like she was doing a great job on her own by standing firm. Sad for those little boys. We had some real winners in a past neighborhood, but a friend has topped all my stories with tales of troubled (and troubling) neighbors. I hope hers all move away soon, too. They are terrible. :(

    1. The neighborhood is much quieter without her. She was always up against someone because she would her kids roam the late at night. Not to mention, they were left alone a lot.

  9. Congrats to Norma!
    Poor kids. What message is that parent sending out to her child?

  10. Thank you, boys! Collin teased me a bit, asking why he did the cover and I got the prize--so we compromised. We're using the gift certificate to add to our digital movie and TV library. Thank you for choosing my name. I guess rubbing a hamburger on the slip of paper with my name on it helped, huh?

  11. Congrats on the cover reveal and congrats to Norma.

    Holy cow, that's a scary neighbor. Glad she's gone!

    1. Thank you and yes, its great that she's gone.

  12. Hi Shelly,

    Your fur peeps are as adorable as ever. Congrats to the winner.

  13. Those fur peeps are so cute they make me want to get a puppy too! And that poor kid :(

    1. Thank you for stopping by. Yes. Those poor boys.


Let me know what you think.
