Sunday's drive up your blog… with Ramblin' Rooster

The official blog of

Goodbye, So Long, Farewell

with 16 comments

Last night I was eating watermelon and lying under the picnic table watching the television that I mounted under there so I could lay under the picnic table and eat watermelon. A commercial came on telling me how much money I could get for simply sending them my unwanted gold, “Watches, chains, rings, broken jewelry and dental scrapes.”


This commercial really toyed with my emotions. I felt pulled in two completely different directions.


One – I’ve been smacking around the elderly for years to get their dental scrapes. Now, finally I have a way to get money for what I just kept in a jar on my mantle. People would come by the roost and say, “Wow, what’s this?” To which I’d happily reply, “That’s a jar full of dental scrap that I’ve been collecting over the years. You remember Mrs. Isley down the street? That’s her back molar right there.”


Two – My heart started to hurt. I know people talk about the grass being greener on the other side and how it’s bad to always want what you haven’t got, but seriously, somewhere out there is a woman with a solid gold mouth. I for one want her!


I’m not kidding, what is dental scrap?


Tonight was my 300th blog. Whoopee! It seemed like a good place to stop.


I want to thank all the wonderful people that stopped by and chatted with me, who left awesome comments and/or their point of view. I enjoyed reading your blogs as well and I am truly grateful to have been added to someone’s blogroll. It’s soooo 2000, but making it on someone’s blogroll is like winning a mini-Oscar, (more like a Tony) but it’s still awesome.


Everyone who was a regular and was constantly witty and incorrigible has made a permanent impression in my life. I had a wonderful time!


Thank you, thank you, thank you for EVERYTHING!


I will come and visit again, (OK Claire?).


Egg Off,

Ramblin’ Rooster

    Ok Rooster.
    I guess so…

    Not like I have a lot of choice.

    You’re still my favorite Rooster.

      • And I’m glad to see you stopping back in. We could keep the comment threads going forever even if you never blog. I have 300 of your posts to catch up on. If I start responding to them one a day just like they were new, then you’d come respond to me every night.

        I’m in favor of that…

  2. Just one a week, that’s all we ask.
    A Saturday suprise
    A Sunday funday
    Fish Friday?
    Anything? Well if you are really done then you will be sorely missed. You have a uniquely intelligent mind. I sometimes walk around my house, looking at random objects and wandering what you will find to make interesting and funny the next day.
    I’ll never be able to look at a deliciously cold beverage and not think, “Why won’t my wife just fill her breasts with that iced tea, is she that selfish and lazy?”
    I’ll never be able to attend a company picnic without poisoning my coworkers with LSD. –In all fairness, that’s probably not all your fault.
    I’ll never be able to pimp smack one of my ho’s without shedding a tear.
    I’ll never be funny without consulting your handbook.
    I could go on and on, but my point is this, don’t kill the magic, baby. It is weird considering someone a friend who you’ve never met, but I do think we are. So if you’re done for real, at least join facebook or something.

    Just do us the honor of one a week. Please?!?!

    • Scott Oglesby, if ever there was a debate as to whether or not roosters could cry or not, you’ve just won the argument for the “yes they can” side. Golly gee… that’s too much feel good. I’m honored by your words and I will accept your cyberfriendship ring.

  3. So, you’re just another of Tannerleah’s alter egos? Or seriously, what the hell? That’s two great blogs in 10 days that have bitten the dust.

    Hopefully, we’ll still see you around. I always enjoyed your casual strutting through the comment threads whether at my place or others.

    I know I arrived rather late to the 300 posts, but I’ve enjoyed every one I’ve read. Including the riddles, despite myself.

    Thanks for the entertainment, Rooster.

    • Capitalist Lion Tamer, how dare you, I am my own alter ego! What the hell is right! Thanks for the kind words, right back at you. I find you to be incredibly talented blogger, (if that’s not an insult, would writer be more flattering?). To quote thousands of my homies, “I think your shit is da bomb”.

  5. Well, it’s a real shame, RR. This was one of my favourite haunts to visit. But I understand, of course.

    If you change your mind, you know where to find us.

    All the best,

  6. I for one Rooster hope you’ll hang around in some capacity. Tip of the cap to you RR.

    Thanks, FJ
