Scooby’s Outlaws in “The Great Train Robbery”

The Great Train Robbery

Built in Buffalo in ’98
A steam loco made fur pullin’ freight,
Passengers, mail–I will not quibble–
Car loads full of golden kibble!
The word leaked out that fateful day
Scooby’s Outlaws arrived to play
At the gamblin’ wheel, I’d say.
Calamity Opie grabbed the nail
And spun that wheel ’round with her tail!
She had a tight ferocious grip,
And used her tail just like a whip.
30 Red–she’d not be beaten!
Some folks thinkin’ she be cheatin’.
“Best be moving on now girl.
Don’t give that wheel another twirl.”
Zeke the Kid glared at the crowd
While Opie started growlin’ loud!
Zeke’s long claws began a flexin’
Like an old gunfightin’ Texan.
They all moved slowly to the door
Until they’d gone and seen no more.
Men loaded great big kibble sacks
Into the freight car on the tracks.
The Scooby Gang on silent paws
Climbed up the car’s sides with their claws.
Resting finally on the roof,
They groomed their fur–remained aloof.
Twenty mile they held on tight,
‘Specially when the train turned right!
Scoob decided time for action
When the engine lost it’s traction,
Brakin’ for a paid-off Moose!
“It’s time to cut the caboose loose!”
Brewing coffee warm inside
Was old conductor One-Eyed Clyde.
“Sorry, Clyde! Have a nice ride!”
Opie grinned coquettishly
When the coupler pin pulled free.
“In another mile or so,
We’ll cut the freight car loose and go,
Packing out these bulging sacks
Of golden kibble on our backs.”
The loot was never seen again,
And that is all I know, my friends.

Note from the Editor in Chief: Wednesday March 20th, 2019, by popular demand, there will be a new ‘tail’ of the old West starring Scooby, Calamity Opie, and Zeke the Kid. Due to copyright issues, the “Scooby Gang” will now be referred to as “Scooby’s Outlaws”. If you have another name suggestion, add it below.

Cat Condo with Scooby

This post is about the cat condo with Scooby.  The cat condo goes back to 2011 I think.  It has had periods of popularity and periods of total neglect.

2016 Can I please come in? asked Marigold. No room for you Marigold. We need a basement apartment!

You know how cats are.  A popular sleeping place for Scooby is a cardboard box.  He often is hard to find when he is sleeping under it.  I decided to upgrade his box and put the condo on top of it.  Could use some “decoration.” Maybe I could put an even bigger box under it! It was not long before Scooby moved in!  A change in position can often revitalize an unused item.

Christine’s Calendar Cat for March 2019

Scooby is my Love Christine’s Calendar Cat pick for March 2019. The calendar was a present made by Christine and Spike, and sent late last year for use this year. Scooby is an internet favourite. That is a new jar of catnip on the table on the right. Christine has been sending calendars to me for many years now.  I hope she never stops making them for me.

Is the Scooby Gang back in Town?

Rumours have been going around, and people are asking is the Scooby Gang back in Town? There have been unconfirmed stories of members of the gang being sighted in the area. The last we heard, they had escaped to Bolivia to join up with the Hole in the Wall Gang. From unnamed sources, we have obtained these exclusive photos. They have been identified as the notorious and dangerous “Zeke the Kid”. The public is asked to not approach, but alert authorities if Zeke is spotted. This is a public service announcement.
