The Island Grove Press Big Foot Award.


We don't think you're so abominable.


At least that's what we planned for our award avatar when Josie said J.R. , one of our correspondents, deserved one.


Island Grove Press, though miniscule, is not an easy place to get awards from.


But here is what we're working on at present.


Well, it is Good Friday.


What a surprise when they roll the rock back.

Ivan, I love it! You're too funny. Sigh... that means I have to work.

Drat.

Watch out Ilker Yoldas, we're hot on your heels.

Huh? What's going on? Somebody ... PLEASE HELP ME!

islandgrovepress said...

That'll teach me to get into the bad beer when I run out of liquor on a good Friday!

I start doing a Jim Carrey too.

Ivan, JR's a little confused! Are we still having a party to celebrate your horsing around?

Donnetta Lee said...

Okay, now I'm confused. What kind of party are we having tonight? Horsing around? Or having a rock party? Yes, I know that was a terrible pun. Just hope somebody "got it." Poor JR. Do you think he's feeling picked on? I'd better run check out his blog!

I'm holding a drink between hoof and pastern, and a cigarette in my other foot.

Bring it on, Joe Camel!

Ivan

islandgrovepress said...

You can see the shape I'm in.

Look at the way I spelled Island Grove Press above!

Ivan

EAMonroe said...

Pretty soon JR will be handing out his own "awards!" I wonder who will be getting one of those??

islandgrovepress said...

Omigod.

We may well end up a captive audience at the presentations :)

Ivan

Donnetta Lee said...

Ivan, you are getting my "spelling" ways. "Captive?" Who said, "captive?" So just what does JR have planned for us anyway? Nothing with bars, I hope!
Donnetta

Islandgrovepress said...

As many bars as we can hop.

Ivan

EAMonroe said...

hahaha -- Islad grove press!

EAMonroe said...

PS -- no wonder you can't spell , Ivan. You were holding a drink between hoof and pastern, and a cigarette in your other foot!

islandgrovepress said...

Omigod.

I just realized I can't go anywhere.
My new shoes have just been nailed on.

Liz,

"Oh the horse stood around
With his foot on the ground."

...and he couldn't spell either.


The play Equus is back.
I wonder if Erik is going to
bring his succubus!

Ivan

Josie said...

Ivan, how did you do that?

isladgrovepress

LOL.

Are you drunk, or am I?

Josie

Josie,

I keep trying to outsmart beta,which doesn't seem to like when I sign just "Ivan".

Now Beta has rendered m me "dumb dweeb", I suppose.

Ivan

p.s.: My old Star friends, what's left of them, were absolutely thrilled when I showed them excerpts from your blog about the horse.
Said it was indeed an honour and congratulated me.
Good work, Josie, and of course, I'm honoured to have a high-profile horse named after me. Good ole Pam.

I.

Josie said...

Well, Ivan, you're now famous. Susan had this comment on my post:

Im sure Ivan will be most impressed. Such an honor to have a race horse be named after him. So now we change the old saying to hung like Ivan?

Too funny. I burst out laughing when I read it. Susan has a great sense of humor.

Josie

islandgrovepress said...

Ah well.

We could be Hung like William.

JR's Thumbprints said...

Good morning everyone. Rise and shine! It's a brand new sunshiney day. Get up, GET up, GET UP!!!

islandgrovepress said...

I can't get over the intelligence of you guys.

Like JR half-anticipating what I was composing this morning, addled as I am with the sunriser.

I was going to write about the weirdest assignment I ever got from the TORONTO SUN, a review of a transvestite comedy club called SHE-RADE.

This was some years back, long before the political correcness of today.

A portion of my story:

High-heeled MC to a front-row patron:

"And what do you do for a living, sir?"

"I drive a limo.

"You drive a homo?"

No, no. I drive a limo."

"No way. You drive a homo. I can tell. Something's eating away at you."

And so it went.

Moral of story: Never sit in the front row of a gay comedy club.

...Better still, don't go at all if you were once a straight limo driver like JR.

Ah well.
Ladies certainly enjoy reading your limo stories, JR.

Look what I've missed! Buggar world time zones.
You folk are so funny, Ilker and Big Foot...

Did you realise, "William" is Prokopchuk's brother..his older brother!

Everybody around (here), the district, is working through their syllables, Pro-kop-chuk, this is nice, a little bit of Ukrainian to rural Australia.

islandgrovepress said...

G,mornin' Pam and JR,

Hell, I'm still half lit from last night's party, and what do I get first thing in the morning?--JR banging on the door and commanding us all to rise and shine--bright-eyed and bushey-tailed!

Well damn. It's 7:30 a.m here, the beer stores don't open till ten, I've got a thirst screaming to god and I'm seriously eyeing the cough syrup.

Pam, I think you had said something about Prokopchuk's older brother winning something large.
I should also know the name of P's
famed prize-winning grandfather,but I don't.

You might also be pleased to know
that my pen-pal Antonia Zerbisias, Toronto Star,--was absolutely thrilled to hear a racehorse was named after me, and she offered speedy congratulations.

Don't know how long I'm going to stay on this high, but I'll probably start coming down once the beer store opens.

Good morning, Pam, and as usual,thanks for the
good news.

Ivan

Donnetta Lee said...

Morning everybody! Just had my oatmeal and coffee. Haven't opened the curtains yet. Is that JR hollering at us to get up?? I sure hope it doesn't snow again today. Better have one more cup before I get around.
Donnetta

islandgrovepress said...

I've already fed the chicken and done the chores.
Finally made the beer store. Close call. Only a few are open.
All tuckered out.
Going back to bed.
JR woke me up early.

Ivan

islandgrovepress said...

It is snowing like a madrechingador out there.

No wonder I'm going back to bed.
Gonna start this day all over again after I get my beauty sleep.

Ivan

Josie said...

Who's making all that racket?

islandgrovepress said...

People banging on cell doors.
Trouble in the ward!
