Nature and Final Friday Fiction: Chippie

Chip D. Munk
As seen through My Mind's Eye

Chapter 1 is here
Chapter 2 is here

I know you are all waiting with baited fishy breath for Chapter 3

My phrases/words come from 
Sea Bound: A quilting Cozy by Carol Dean Jones.
There are 11 books in series I am on #7 EXCELLENT!!!
I didn't know exactly what Cozies were about
Cozies are about relationships with a simple mystery inside and they are about A hobby… Quilting

line 8:  checked in
line 12: Have you seen
line 16:chaotic right now

When last we met, Chippie's wife Cheri was day dreaming:

"Cheri loved Chippie with all her wee munk heart; however, she had a mental image of one day having a pantry in her burrow with a week's worth of food and no worries. That would indeed be a staycatioin for Chip D. Munk and his family of three...."

Chippie was an attentive husband.  He always had the best interest of
his family of three on his mind
As you can see from this video, things around Chippies burrow are
chaotic right now.

Chippie focus was to try very hard to fulfill Cheri's desire for her pantry to be full, so that her family of three could have a  staycation without any worries.  Lo and behold he went about town gathering and hoarding. He  struck petunia gold without even trying.
Chip D Munk and family thank Ms. Janice for this lovely photo

Cheri was so very proud of Chippie.  Every time her friends passed by
her burrow she scurried out asking each one
have you seen my pretty purple petunia garden.
Her itty bitty munk heart sang each time she thought about Chippie's devotion.
Chippie D. Munk was now working very hard to prepare for a week's
staycation with his family.  There was love in the air,
Edgar Eagle checked in on the Munk family
from his perch way at the top of the pine bough. He told Chippie not to
worry about him he was taking Mrs. Eagle and the Eaglets on a vacation that
very week.
Chippie and Cheri and baby makes three spent a lovely staycation running to and
fro inside their burrow sleeping and munching on pretty purple petunias.
Life was good.  Enjoying the simple pleasures makes for a Merry Munk family.

Happy Nature Friday too: hosted Arty, Jakey and Rosy
From Chip D. Munk and his family  of three
and Patsy Petunia
Janice is a former co-worker, at NCSU, and a very good friend of mine.
  She planted this gorgeous arrange of Purple Petunias
 at her Mother-in-law's home.  Janice calls her Mom and so do I.
Mom is in her mid 90's.
Janice and her hubby check on Mom several times a week.  On Saturday's
Janice washes and rolls Mom's hair.  While Mom's hair dries, Mom plays the
piano...mostly by ear.

    Hoorah for Chippie and his family! That petunia is amazing - not my favourite flower, I confess, but this variety with its plain-coloured blooms is gorgeous. YAM xx

  6. Janice's Mom sounds like an amazing lady. That's sweet of you to check on her. The petunias are outstanding.

    Happy weekend.

  7. Love your story and the beautiful purple petunias!

  8. i think these might be the prettiest petunias i have ever seen. they are perfect in that planter.. that said, i smiled all the way thought the tale of the Merry Munk Family and their quest for a staycation with lots of food. good job

  9. We love your story. It sounds like the chip monkeys are having a good time on their stay cation.

  10. Oh those flowers are amazing. Love the colors.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend, my friend. Big hug. ♥

  11. That was so good, we all are Chippie fans here! Hey, doesn't playing the piano like that hurt Mom's ears?

  12. Oh how nice it is to read some good news this week. So pleased that Chippie and family are enjoying their cosy staycation.
    Toodle pip!

  13. Whew! I am glad the eagle family left on vacation and left the Chippie family a worry free staycation! Those are gorgeous petunias. I always thought I could smell the purple ones better than the other colors and they always smelled best in the evening.

  14. Didn't know Chippie-munks ate flowers, but I suppose I've never thought about it. (Don't know that I'd trust the Eagle family....just sayin.)

  15. The petunias are lovely. Glad the Chippies could enjoy there staycation.

  16. Great story-happy chipmunks :) XO

  17. Wonderful story HiC...and a bonus of a beautiful and fun nature backdrop!

  18. Loving this story - I adore chippies! Also adore petunias and these are incredible.

    Love, Pam

  19. I love petunias. I have some wavy purple and white petunias in my front flower bed. What we don't have are chipmunks and they are SOOOOO cute!

  20. What a cute story and beautiful flowers! But I'm sure Chester is thinking: Gee, I wonder if that chippy I chased up the drain pipe yesterday is having fun in there? A perfect place for a staycation … until it rains!

  21. What a great story! and we love the beautiful flowers
