Noddy

    WYNKEN, BLYNKEN and NOD

by Eugene Field

Greg Sheila and Noddy February

Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night
Sailed off in a wooden shoe,–
Sailed on a river of crystal light
Into a sea of dew.
“Where are you going, and what do you wish?”
The old moon asked the three.
“We have come to fish for the herring-fish
That live in this beautiful sea;
Nets of silver and gold have we,”
Said Wynken,
Blynken,
And Nod.
Noddy kitten

The old moon laughed and sang a song,
As they rocked in the wooden shoe;
And the wind that sped them all night long
Ruffled the waves of dew;
The little stars were the herring-fish
That lived in the beautiful sea.
“Now cast your nets wherever you wish,–
Never afraid are we!”
So cried the stars to the fishermen three,
Wynken,
Blynken,
And Nod.
Noddy February III

All night long their nets they threw
To the stars in the twinkling foam,–
Then down from the skies came the wooden shoe,
Bringing the fishermen home:
‘Twas all so pretty a sail, it seemed
As if it could not be;
And some folk thought ’twas a dream they’d dreamed
Of sailing that beautiful sea;
But I shall name you the fishermen three:
Wynken,
Blynken,
And Nod.

Noddy February

Wynken and Blynken are two little eyes,
And Nod is a little head,
And the wooden shoe that sailed the skies
Is a wee one’s trundle-bed;
So shut your eyes while Mother sings
Of wonderful sights that be,
And you shall see the beautiful things
As you rock in the misty sea
Where the old shoe rocked the fishermen three:–
Wynken,
Blynken,
And Nod. Joe and Noddy at the piano

Simon’s Cat in ‘Double Trouble’

There’s a new kitten in the house and Simon Tolbert’s cat has the typical response.

You can view it on his website by clicking on the image above or go here to watch it on youtube.

Piano cat

Up until recently, Benjamin Franklin would jump up on top of the piano whenever Joe sat down to play.

Cats are like that…just when one thinks that “he always does that”, then he doesn’t.

So we were surprised a couple of nights ago when he reclaimed his balcony seat.

Maybe it’s the selection.

Joe’s been playing a lot of show tunes and this time he was using his Heavenly Highways hymnal (old southern gospel).

Discriminating taste our cat has.
