I've been on a trip. Hey man, look at me.Way cool, I'm trippin....Tee, he! That's just my little joke, not that sort of trip. No, the day out sort. Week before last when the sun was actually shining. The 2 leggededs and me, we went to see the sea! I'll tell you about it.

The sea. It was almost blue.(so Mom said) Funny that. Looked sort of grey to me. Was big. And wet. On my paws. Kept moving. All the time. Made me jump. Didn't venture into it after that. To be pawfectly honest I didn't like the sea too much. But the beach, that was a different story. Sniffy pawfect. Beachy. Smelly. Salty. Pebbly. Feety. Fishy. Foodie. Mmmmmmmm. Head on down once I discovered the poochie pleasures of the pleasure beach.

The best part of the day was to come. Boy,oh boy! Did the day get better? Indeedy. I had my first one EVER. Dog-a-licking-licious. Bloggies, it inspired me to change the Seaside Song into my own little Ditty. You know the Seaside Song? Yeah, you must do. I sang my Ditty all the way home. Been singing it ever since. Let me teach it to you.

Now sort of h-o-w-l the first and last word on every line for extra emphasis. Wow, EMPHASIS, big word from Eric Square. Impressed myself with that one. But I DIGRESS. Oh, hee ,he! Another big word! The fresh sea air has cleared the cobwebs from the corners of my Square Brain. Back to my Ditty. Here it is.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside
I do like to be beside the sea
the doggies play
- om - pom - pom
I do like to be beside the seaside
I do like to be beside the sea
what I likes the best
when I takes a rest
has an ice cream for my tea!

Yep. Dog-a-licking lovely. We all scream for Ice Cream. Dogs. Kitties. And Hammies. Sing along with me in the chorus? I'll give you the ear for when you're to join in.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside
I do like to beside the sea
the doggies play
Piddleee -
om - pom - pom . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
. . . .

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

Oh I do like to be beside the sea

But what I likes the best

Is when I takes a rest

And has an ice cream for my tea!

Good evening eric.
Poet's Eric is an expression that shows the sea.
It is a sound of Pon Pon and the wave there.
Booming of the sea returned when coming.
The wind is talked and comes.
In the end of a wonderful stroll of the coast, there is time of a delicious ice cream. :)

from loved ume tyan

Deetz said...

I just love the picture of you eating your ice cream......
Did you revive your mum??? Gosh I am sorry she fainted. My daddy almost fainted when he saw it. Mum could care less about snakes cuz they eat the mice...She doesn't like mice, they freak her out.
Give her an extra kissy from me

Deetz said...

Oh and guess what? I didn't get a bath last night cuz it was way too windy outside and I slip too much in the human tub....mum said she may just "Febreeze" me
I think it smells better then her perfume

Jake of Florida said...

What fun you are having by the sea. No leash? How cool!!!

While in San Francisco, our Mom is not wearing flowers in her hair -- but she definitely has felt a very 60's spirit in the air (Note the rhyme!!)

In answer to your question: If a wire fox terrier barks in the middle of the night, after the lights go out, and no one hears him, has he really barked???

Petey said...

Hi Eric!

I really liked your song -- and your ice cream! Yum! Did you go swimming in the sea? I like to flop down in the shallow part and let the waves tickle my tummy.

Plus the salt water makes my hair look crazy!

Your pal,


Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Eric,
We're still playing catch up on posts, tee hee. We just love to go by the water & beach, well, we don't exactly have a beach like you do. We go to lakes & trout streams, etc. and they have lots of sand. And yes, the ice cream is the BEST PART!!! Mama just loves that picture of your face full of ice cream, hehehehehe!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Deetz said...

I got febrezed instead of a bath....its too muddy and wet here right now for a bath...mum says it would be a waste of time...
Happy Friday Eric
