Pet's Garden

Today, we're thrilled to be joined by Pet Campbell from Pet's Garden...

The panel is ready with their questions...

First question...

What was your first pet?

It was a pinto pony named Major. He was blond and white pinto pony. I was 4 when he was given to me.

What was the name of your very first pet?

Major, a pinto pony

What do you plant in your garden? (Not your pets!?)

No.. but I am tempted to plant BlackJack at times.. I grow roses, exotic ferns, miniature roses, hibiscus, Mandeville's, peace lilies, lantana, blueberries and I keep trying to coax some asters to be happy.

Is there a message or theme you would hope your readers would discover at Pet's Garden? (In other words, why do you blog and what is your blog mission?)

Ummmm.. Critters are a pain in the rear? Or Ill take door number 4 for 500.00

I'll assume someone else already asked why. So...How?

How what?

Tigger is very photogenic, and probably the most beautiful cat on the planet. Now that I've said it, will you please make him untie me?

Being restrained can be good for critters...even Yaks Ummmm' Tigger was talking about some funds that went missing.. In bribes err compensation... perhaps we should review those?

How many moonbats does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

None they see in the dark. Just like every one of our critters

What kind of camera are you using to take the photos that appear on your blog?

It's called digital magic. Push the button ..Presto!

What makes you really, really angry?

When people go out of their way to hurt critters or each other.. or When people disrespect my Lord Jesus Christ

What makes you happy?

The muzzle of Tigger under my chin, both dogs at my side, and TheMasterOfTheUniverse humming happily.

What makes you want to run off and eat ten bowls of ice cream?

10 bought we do 2 bowls for 70?

It's hot and I'm over hungry or didn't made any dinner

If you ate ten bowls of ice cream, what kind(s) of ice cream would they be?

I am pretty sure HaganDaz only makes raspberry ice cream.. I have never actually checked.

What goes on a cheeseburger?

How wide can you open? Pickles, tomatoes, lettuce, purple onion, ketchup

Is Pet your real first name? Never mind, I found the answer on your blog

. . .

Bouncin Bengal in the TTLB Ecosystem? Cincinnati? Um, never mind again, I see you are in Florida. Wait, I still want to know why "Bouncin' Bengal"

If you knew Bengal's you would know why... they stalk, they pounce, Bengal's bounce up and down, making the most awful sounds.. Usually at 3am... This is also why Tigger is an accomplished Flyer.

I've seen a lot of cat blogs around, what is that all about?

Is there anything more wonderful than an animal that loves you Absolutely? That looks to you for all their needs? Get a dog, cause Cat's own you. We are forced to blog about our Felines.. Its in a contract somewhere..

What is your line of work?

I support our critters

Where were you during 9/11?

On top of a mountain gathering heifers

Have you ever served in the military?

no, but my hubby TheMasterOfTheUniverse was M.I. and did 3 tours in Viet Nam

Gardening? I've heard it can be therapeutic, is that true? I do NOT have a green thumb at all and know nothing about flowers or anything related to gardening. But say I wanted to get started, what would be a good small inexpensive project? Keep in mind I don't like to get my hands dirty. Can I get away with wearing those fancy gardening gloves?

Go to Lowes and buy a patio plant.. Exhausted yet? Your done.. Those Gloves still look nice and clean.

Plus I live in Alabama where there is a lot of limestone, what can I do about that? Would I have to build up a bed? That sounds like too much work. I also don't like to get sweaty or perform physical labor. Perhaps gardening is not for me?

See above...

Do you have children? Can I make my children do the gardening for me?

Umm yes I have a child.. He's 29, No they cannot garden for you.. They pull plants and plant weeds

Will you enter any more blog contests?

With Tigger reading over my shoulder, how can I avoid it?

why Florida?

Can you say ten months of winter (Montana has serious winter) and two months of company, yes they flock to the mountains while the weather is decent.........

What can you grow in Florida that doesn't die in the summer heat with lack of water (or too much water after a hurricane)?

oh gosh Kadzu, Virginia creeper, roses, Mandeville, hibiscus.

After Cats and Dogs, what is the best 'pet' to have?

A husband you adore.

What was your worst day blogging?

I have to pick?

What is your favourite book?

Time Enough For Love, by Robert A. Heinlein

What's the most Redneck / White Trash thing you've ever done?

I danced on the bar at the saddle tramp saloon the night before it Closed, there were several cowboys, with spurs and chaps as we had just ridden in from range. It was 3 miles from the ranch, there may have been some tequila involved. Actually there was quite a bit of it.

Describe a perfect day.

The best day would be...

4am the alarm in my head does not go off.. The dogs do not do their its time get up dance, while howling. Tigger does not bite me to see if I'm up. Clients do not start calling till 9 am I make time for some Bible Study, and some lunch I get the house cleaned, and dinner made by 8 pm.. I have time to cuddle in the tub with TheMasterOfTheUniverse

Describe a perfect meal.

The best meal..


Top sirloin steak, marinated, then grilled..
Twice baked potatoes, fresh steamed asparagus,
A salad with fresh vegetables, and a raspberry vinaigrette dressing..
Fresh from the oven sweet dinner rolls..
Homemade angel food cake with raspberry or blueberry drizzle..
The company of TheMasterOfTheUniverse..
And something like Clannad or Enya on the cd player..

Thanks, Pet, for being here today. We really enjoyed it. Thanks.

Next weekend, we'll be interviewing The Ugly American (The Real Ugly American) and Tammi (Tammi's World). That should be fun.
