Hunting For Mistletoe

So mom dussn't has to go to werk any more until NEXT YEAR!  So we went hiking today.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, joke's on the tickies coz I alreddy has Lyme disease and I now has anti-bionic powahs!
So this park be in the Pine Barrens down south in New Joisey and yes, they has tickies furry bad there so we dussn't go there in the summertime but even in the wintertime the tickies can still be there, just not as many.

I readed this furry interesting article yesterday about mistletoe so I wanted to go find some and this looked like a good place.  So in a skwerrel's nutshell, burds nom the mistletoe seeds then send them out their poo shooters into the tops of trees and that be where the mistletoe grows way up high.
Looking in the treetops fur mistletoe.
No mistletoe here.
Where is you mistletoe?
So there be lots of boardwalks in this park like I is walking on above.  They can be furry slickery.  Just call me Surepawed Shawnee coz I did not fall.  Mom did.  On her hiney.  So I made her walk next to the boardwalks.
Still no mistletoe but I found Oyster Creek.
And I found gooses.
And I found holly.
But still no mistletoe.  No worries, I be gibbing out smoochies anyways.

Mom says she would give you lots of smoochies, mistletoe or not - and yes, she knows you are a girl, but she just thinks you are such a sweetie she just wants to give you lots of snooter smoochies.

Happy Holidays to you and Mom - enjoy that time off - it goes by all too quickly.

Shawnee, Mom said that when she was a teenager, she was visiting her grandma in Alabama one year at Thanksgiving time. Her mom wanted to take some mistletoe home in a big way, so they went out in the woods and shot some out of a tree. Then they put it in a big bag and started driving towards home. Mom and Crazy Aunt J were dying because that mistletoe smelled like cat pee! Not just a little odor, either, but eye-watering, gag-inducing stinky cat pee stink! They made Grandma stop part way home and throw it out. I think it might be for the best that you didn't find that mistletoe!

You were in the Pine Barrens so I think the Jersey Devil probably took all the mistletoe.

We did not know how mistletoe got high up in the trees! We learn lots of cool stuff on your hikes Shawnee!
