Why I Smell Like Ben Franklin

I know, I know. It’s hard to see me in this picture. But it’s important that you see part of the jungle in my backyard kingdom. See, there are lots of places for bugs to hide in my yard. They have a big time flying around and biting my peeps in the back of the neck while They do yard work. While I’m snoopervising.

It’s also important that you see how alone I am. No peep sitting next to me. No Sniglet sniffing my butt or biting off my eyebrow.

It’s because I smell so bad strong.

Y’all remember that I was looking for some natural flea stuff the other week. Some people talked about peppermint oil, so She went out to find some. She came back with this spray stuff. And now I smell like Ben Franklin. (The craft store that now goes by the name “A.C. Moore.”) A really strong Ben Franklin. Really. Strong.

Do y’all have Ben Franklin stores where y’all live?  Those stores smell. Like a hodgepodge of potpourri and holiday candles. Cinnamon. Clove. And more cinnamon. If a little is good, then a lot must be better. More cinnamon please! NOT.

That’s what I smell like. The spray stuff She bought has peppermint oil, lemongrass oil, clove oil, cinnamon oil and thyme oil. They’ve even stuffed some vanilla in that bottle.

I thought I would pass out. We’ll see if this stuff works. If I don’t pass out first.

What You Learned Today:

  • There are things you can use to keep fleas and ticks away that aren’t chemically based.
  • It’s better for you if you use natural things. Instead of chemicals. Even though I have to use a chemical to keep the whipworms and heartworms away. Better chemicals than worms.
  • We’ll see.
  • OH….and hop on over to Dougall’s blog to see what he’s up to. He’s now on my blogroll. Welcome to Blogville Dougall!

  1. Momma and I thought you were talking about Ben Franklin the inventor and were wondering how he smelled. My guess was like ozone, since he got hit by lighting with his kite!

  2. Oh, yah, know the smell…MSD’s fave Ben Franklin is in Grand Marais, MN, on the North Shore of Lake Superior. You could smell worse…heard some stories in Door County of a skunk and Scottie encounter!

    We don’t have any Ben Franklins here. I’m still looking for a store that smells like week-old dead rabbit. C’mon peeps, I’ll let you have that idea for free. You’ll make a million. I’ll even give you a name-Buggy Bunny. I want a Buggy Bunny in my neighborhood. It’s an idea whose time has come. Even Kenzie agrees.

    Hey Stuart!
    Wow, what a fun territory you have! Love the bench and little pond. I thought maybe you had rolled around in a big pile of money! BOL. My mom used to have a Ben Franklin store in her hometown. Well, I hope the smell works to keep the pesky critters away!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

    Oh I don’t know about having all those smells together Stuart, Sounds dangerous to me, like placing an incense stick in your butt and lighting it. Did I just say that!! I am sticking to the old slogan a little dab will do ya.

    I feel for you Stuart. Having to walk around smelling like a craft store and all. However, your peeps must be enjoying this wonderful smell. Plus, think of the advantages… you can, um, fart all you want and maybe nobody will notice?!
