Pokey Faints


Pokey just got off the phone with his stock broker and accountant and in light of the economy... he fainted dead away! He is worried that with his finances he just won't be able to eat as well as he thought he would this year, prices of hay, corn and oats are going up and his portfolio is going down!!! Poor little guy, I had to throw some cold water on him to revive him!

Not to worry, I won't let him read the paper, talk to his broker or accountant any more!!

Glad you like it Lisa! Someone asked me if Pokey was going to be on a magazine cover so I was trying to think of something and this is what my tired mind came up with. (for some reason couldn't sleep last night, tired as all get out but still have my sense of humor! Baha)

Great idea with the mag cover! We can all use a little humor right now! :)

Tell Pokey I can relate!!!

I know it's not really a laughing matter, the economy, but sometimes a little humor doesn't hurt!

So happy Pokey got his cover. I was the one that asked if he would. He is such a cute little critter. You gave me a much needed giggle today. Jan

Jan, I was going to try and find something about donkey's to put little Pokey's picture on but then saw the Riches one and the funny bug hit me and well, this is what I cam up with. Thanks for asking if Pokey was going to get his cover or I may not have done it! :-)
