C’mon Uber-Froggy! Let’s blow this joint! The injustice of it all!!!



Hi there everyone, CJ here….

Mousie is upset. He has had enough of the bad treatment and apparent deprivation he feels he is forced to exist under.

So, Morguie has ‘walked off the job.’  He says he is officially on strike until conditions improve.


The problem started when I caught him binge-watching animal videos on the YouTube. Remember, earlier this month, he tried to run away, attempting to get ‘across the pond’ to stay with our loyal follower, David , in Wales?

Yeah, well that was an ‘epic fail’ as they like to say…he and the Uber-froggy ended up in a Mexican immigration cell for sneaking over the border without visas. Suddenly he wanted to come home. Hmmm.

He might have made it to Wales, if only they’d had a map…

Morguie demands similar living conditions, special perks, and the basic comforts he found one of his distant cousins enjoying …in the really short clips below:




Really now???  

Sorry folks, Mousie might be gone for a little while, as near as I can estimate…the ‘Pizza’ is NOT going to happen. Period!

We  thank you so much for coming in to see us,  ME today. I apologize for Morguie’s bad behavior, too.

Now I am going to need every ‘like’ vote I can get if I am to hope to manage this show solo…

SO, pretty, pretty please…won’t you tap that “Like” button on your way out….and leave any thoughts you have about this strike Mousie is on, too?

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,500 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 58 trips to carry that many people.

Musing With Mousie

Recently, the Mouse received a piece of ‘fan mail.’

This is pretty exciting since both of us are very flattered to have so many nice people

“following” us here on our blog. We are very humbled indeed that we are able to help even 

ONE person here, let alone several, as they come to read about things we talk about. But first,

we want to say that we are so relieved, at least for this moment, that the big

political fight in Washington D.C. is over and everything is calm again.

Recently, we wrote a few posts expressing our disgust and outrage at the nation’s 

leadership for denying our military families their death benefits, etc. 

It made us so upset!  WE pay the bills. We should not suffer because THEY 

cannot get their act together. WE will do our best next time,

to select more qualified, competent people

to run things when elections come around again.

WE obviously made some very poor selections

judging from what we all bore witness to in the past weeks. 

 We will hop down off of our soapbox, and stay down, now. We don’t 

like getting up there—frankly, it makes us both a little dizzy up there.

Besides, it cuts into the time and energy we use for the real important

stuff this blog was intended for.

Eastern Lightning

Eastern Lightning, the Church of Almighty God was created because of the appearance and work of Almighty God, the second coming of the Lord Jesus, Christ of the last days. It is made up of all those who accept Almighty God’s work in the last days and are conquered and saved by His words. It was entirely founded by Almighty God personally and is led by Him as the Shepherd. It was definitely not created by a person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. God’s sheep hear God’s voice. As long as you read the words of Almighty God, you will see God has appeared.
