So . . . Then . . . What's Going to Happen to Us?

Ever heard of a darling 1963 Disney movie called, "The Son of Flubber" starring Fred MacMurray and Keenan Wynn? (And DO NOT get this hilarious movie confused with that horrid remake starring Mr. Annoying Robin Williams. Blasphemy! Go wash your mouth out with soap if you say that you have watched that yuckity-yuck. And while you're at it, go wash your eyes out with soap too. And your ears. There ought to be a law against that sort of thing.)

Anyway, in the movie, the town's produce is bombarded with "flubbergas" causing everything from carrots to cabbage to grow to ginormous proportions. From our very own yard, Dave harvested our version of the result of vegetation being hit by flubbergas. Notice that it stretches from Dave's toes to well above his well-coiffed head. This, my friend, is the stock of a DANDELION. And unless Dave has suddenly turned into the Incredible Shrinking Man while I wasn't paying attention, this dandelion is one wickedly freaky bit of nature, and I'm not touching it with a ten-foot pole.

Wow, that thing is huge! Speaking of smelly Disney remakes, I have been telling Jordan forever that Swiss Family Robinson just screams remake to me. Not that it would be a good remake, just that it is such a good story and I couldn't believe Disney hadn't already done it with their desperate lack of quality films. Well, Jordan googled SFR, and guess what--a Disney remake is slated for 2012. What have I been saying? Not that I'm glad to be right. Arg.

It looks like Daffy Dandelionseed had been planting in your garden when you weren't looking! Or maybe it was Jack and Dave picked it before it made it's way to the kingdom overhead!

Haha! I agree with Beth. That must be Jack's beanstalk and you just ruined his happily ever after by ripping that sucker out! LOL
