Fleece Hat Book Review

This post has absolutely nothing to do with walruses, but ‘everybody loves a good book review’. These are some pictures of a basset hound hat I made:

Note the cute basset hound.

It is a pattern from in the book Fleece Hat Friends(though we did the eyes differently). I think it was a good book, though some parts were kind of hard to understand(that’s why we did the eyes differently). We also used red felt instead of light brown fleece. The basic hat part was easy to understand.

The Walrus Government

Have you ever wondered how the walrus government works? Well now you can find out!

The walruses vote on most everything. If there is a tie then they have something like what we call the ‘Supreme Court’, which is consisted of three walruses. However, they also have a president, which, unlike our government, decides on certain things, such as: to commerce with foreign nations, to decide what ‘people’ have to do to become a citizen, and other stuff like that, the president is elected by the people. And that is basically how the walrus government works.

Walruses vs. Narwhals (a Walrus story)

As every body should know, Walruses

and Narwhals

narwhals

(If there really are narwhals, some people believe that narwhals are just unicorns in disguise) are enemies. Walruses own U-Haul and Narwhals own Budget. They used to be friends, almost one company. But then, something happened. The something was (drum roll please) the narwhals were having walrus slaves.

Of course the walruses did NOT like this.So, they made speeches and protests. When the narwhals heard of this they said “We’re such good friends that we should be one company, and if we are one company we should have the same rules, and if we have the same rules than we should all have walrus slaves!”The walruses did not like this, so, they said they would break their friendship if they continued to have walrus slaves. Then the narwhals said “Okay! just! try!”. Thus the ‘Walrus Narwhal War’ began. One of the first battles of the war was the battle at the creak of otter run. It is so sad that the otters had to put up with all the fighting, anyway back to the story. Deutero made a speech.

This is the speech:

Zero score and 1 month ago, our brothers brought forth on this day a new club, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to proposition that all walruses are created wise. Now we are engaged in a great club war, testing whether that club, or any club so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on a great battle field of war. We have come to dedicate a portion of it, as a final resting place for those who died here(namely Joe’s Great grand mama and papa), that the nation might live. This we may, in all propriety do. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate—we can not consecrate—we can not hallow, this ground– The brave Joe’s Great grand mama and papa, and others living and dead, who struggled here, have hallowed it, far above our power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what I say here; while it can never forget what they did here. It is rather for us, the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the putrid task remaining before us – that from these honored dead we take increased devotion – that we here highly resolve that these dead here shall not have died in vain – and that this company, under Deutero-Isaiah King-Of-The-North, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that the friendship of the walruses, by the walruses, for the walruses, shall perish from the company.

and he called it the Rose Peddle Cottage Address because he spoke it at rose peddle cottage. By this time a lot more ‘people’ had joined the walruses, such as, Manitoba the snake,

Johnny the swordfish, because he thought the narwhals were big fat copycats,

and others.

Deutero’s speech made lots of ‘people’ go on the walruses side, even some narwhals! eventually the walruses won, and all the walrus slaves were set free.(HURRAH!)
