King of Wrote and Role

Not this king – although he thinks he is. (Elvis Presley/King Creole/USPD/

King of the world.

I know. It’s you.

Secretly, anyway. Won’t tell of your delusions aspirations.

Toddlers, teenagers who weren’t where they were supposed to be, and those high profiles, they know.

Say anything with enough confidence, loudly enough, and often enough, it becomes fact.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have an army behind you: fan club, paparazzi, mean girls, marchers, the petition oriented, mom….

All armed with whatever works. Ready to rule.

Although there are those who need not the followers.

Secure by their own grasp.

Sustained on what appears at their feet.

On top of the world

Having a lot more fun without the rabble babble.

If in doubt, venture on without.

    a lemon can be a kingdom too… specially when it fits so perfectly to your robe :o)

    Love the lizard. We don’t have them here. Guess they don’t like harsh winters. Oh wait! Neither do I!

      This is one of 3 varieties that are living around here now. We’re glad as they consume mosquitoes.
      Of course many of them are now tail free as Molly loves to chase them and her big paws tend to try and hold them down. Law of the Wild – only the fast survive – and it’s a raceway around here. Thanks for climbing over to chat

    “The stuff of mists and legends.” Nice. I can’t wait until the campaign season (years) are over. 🙂

      Ti’s so difficult to get away from the noise. Brigadoon mists/ Bali Hai where are you when we need you?
      Thanks for wafting a comment this way

    Gracious! I knew about the Black Moon but not that it signaled the end times. The “rabble babble” are certainly falling down on the job, not giving me much time to panic. Perhaps they’ve been too focused on the Tangerine Tornado! 😉

    I did have to laugh, the first time I heard of this Black Moon was a meme saying, ‘cops, don’t shoot it!’ Sad that that could be funny. Sad-funny. Well shit, I’m just a ball of joy. Sorry!

      Hey – people need to lighten up. Sick and tired of the Justice Warriors finding fault with every little thing.
      It used to be said that the thing that separated humans from beasts was the ability to laugh and tell jokes…so if that skill is disappearing, it looks like de-evolution has begun
      (Molly grinned and said cats and dogs have taken notice of the potential for species social climbing and are quietly working on their comedy acts as humans get glum….worrisome that both cat and dog here seem to be making exceptional progress in that direction.)
      Thanks for adding some real smiles

    Hi! Pickles asked me to ask you what input Bob had here, and why he isn’t in a picture.

    What can I say? She’s still smitten, nothing to do about it.

    Where is Bob? Bob! BOB!!! Are you there? Are you sick? Are you injured? Did someone bite off your tail? We are worrying! Our Human is inept. She should have asked those questions. Now that We are here We will add: You are most handsome, more handsome BY FAR than that Human with the pompadour and hips that need no more catnip, thank you very much.
    We’re leaving now. Account for yourself; We are distraught.

    We salute your Suzerain, RC Cat.

    Signed and Sealed, Princess 👑 Pickles.
