Discovery of an Unknown Tribe…

Hullo Everyone!

Great News!
The discovery of an Unknown Tribe.

A very fascinating story by the beautiful
Boreal Princess of The North.

Who describes the discovery
as the “Invisible” Tribe of the year.

Let’s explore this a bit more before
Little Lion and I go on with our latest
story as told by the “Boreal Princess.”

We know there are many tribes in the world
visible to us, should we be so lucky meeting them.
We learn about these tribes at school
or through the internet and other media.

The “Boreal Princess” prefers to refer to
the new tribe as the Invisible Tribe.

In “Word of the Day” Merriam-Webster
explains this invisible Tribe  as follows:

live in the woods behind your house,
gathering berries at night
and sleeping by day under a child’s bed.”

From this statement we may assume that
the “Mugwumps” are living everywhere in
the world, but has anyone seen them
eye to eye???


We don’t think so and if they are
we mere mortals can’t see them.
Luckily for parents and children,
the “Mugwumps” seem less frightening
as the “Boogyman” hiding in the closet
or under the kids beds.

The “Mugwumps” remind Little Lion about
Sesame’s Blue Cookie Monster.
He is harmless, too.
He just loves to gobble up
freshly baked cookies!


Without further ado enjoy the story
as told by the “Boreal Princess”,
who tells us that the “Mugwumps” are
a merry and peaceful hardworking tribe.
While invisible to the rest of the world
they are vital to the berry fields.
They are silent, playful and gentle
and as sweet as a strawberry!


After their work is done, the “Mugwumps” 
scatter unseen by all,
and take their recluse in any home near
a wooded area, where they hide under
the beds of the children,
until the first droplets of glinstering
dew at dawn transform the surroundings
in an enchanted world.


like to be entertained by kids and jesters.
They do play pranks at times.
You may wonder if the
“Mugwumps” have anything to do
with the hoaxes on April Fool’s Day?”

Perhaps “yes” perhaps “no”.

Maybe the Museum of Hoaxes can tell you so.

There is one day during a special year
that the invisible “Mugwumps” can be seen
when they are in the woods or resting
under the children’s beds at night.
This happens only if you put a large
sign on your front garden very early
on the first of April,
when that date falls on a Saturday!

It should read:

Welcome Here TODAY All Day Long.


Paste or draw a strawberry or other
berry on it. It will please the “Mugwumps”.

Very Important!

The sign has to be put on your
front lawn and be visible
to all who pass by.

Good Luck!
This is your chance to meet the invisible
“Mugwumps” Tribe.
This chance will not come again soon.
So, please, pass this info on
to all your friends.

We thank the beautiful
“Boreal Princess” of The North
for this exciting “Mugwumps” news.
It may make April 1, 2017 for all a
Happy and Interesting Fool’s Day!

The “Blog Muse” aka “Mistress Mommy” says… gypsy_reading_palm

If the above is not enough foolishness,
here below are the best 100 Pranks.


Have a smiling April Fool’s Day everyone!

See you all again next Saturday!


Time to check the LOOK-OUT and then
the lad and I are going out
for another walk and we will scout
for the “Mugwumps” in the wet flurries.

“Mommy”… I need a Milk-bone snack,
please put some in the Lad’s back-pack.

“Okay, you poor hungry pooch!”

Gotcha Mommy!
April Fools!!!  “Fish!”


“I will get you for this”, Little rascal!

Here we go!
Catch us if you can!



Woof…Woof… Woof!

 Heartfelt thanks to everyone for the animations,
links and the artists and video makers.
