Bluebottle-Bugosi Children.....

Here we have some more of the Bluebottle clan - Berenice's little brothers, Bernard, Benjamin and Buzz.........
While Berenice was buzzing about the garden, trampling on flowers with her sticky shoes, the three brothers would be standing still, arms around one another in an inseparable embrace.......and in complete silence......
In fact, if there ever was a Bugosi less aptly named than the youngest of the three, then I have not heard of him/her.......For, despite his father's high expectations, Buzz uttered not a single 'buzz' during his entire lifetime - in fact, whenever he saw a bee he would remove his left boot and squash it.....while uttering the phrase "Be no more".........
When they grew up, the boys went into a business partnership.....selling pesticides.........their father
never spoke to them again.......

Pleasure it is iwis, to hear bugosis sing.
The deer in the dale, the sheep in the vale, the corn springing.
bzz bzz

patsquire

You call this a pleasure?

juneshone

certainly makes him look urbane and polished. Bet he shuddered when his relative found him again. If it was me I would change my address and leave jigidi, facebook or whatever online pleasures I have

lelabugosi

Quails eggs.....maybe.......possibly........
(This man makes Pee-Squat-Squirt look like an angel!)........

juneshone

could I get two boiled eggs in it? It looks very small

peterpantz

If you ever need a spare pan, you can use mine.......(it holds a lot more than it looks!).....

gemstone

I really really try NOT to look, juneeeee...especially after I've just had lunch!

juneshone

every time I look at this guy I want to shout "Get 'em on!"

lelabugosi

Oh noooooo!................

peterpantz

Hey there Patty!..............

Elfie

The stone - not David!!

Elfie

Thanks patsquire, I never knew about that one!!

patsquire

Yon Davyzip must have kissed the Blarney Stone!

david06520

Bee no more, bzzzz, bee no more;
Men were deceivers ever;
One foot in sea and one on shore,
To one thing constant never;
Then bee not so,
But let them go,
And bee you blithe and bonny;
Converting all your sounds of woah!
Into: Hey nonny nonny bzzzz.

Tatinha

Oh! Elfie. Is there an iRon? How amazing it could be. After all day long exposed to a 80 to 90 degrees sun and a lot of wind. It would be a relief that my clothes count on such technology!

juneshone

nope haven't got any of those things

pdevredis

LOL!

Elfie

Juneee, don't you know? - iPad, iPhone, iPod and iRon!! It's very modern really!!!

juneshone

don't possess an iron or an ironing board. If something needs that kind of attention I just don't buy it

lelabugosi

Tatty.......erm........yes........the shoulders and the armpits.....sort of........the jackets of course had lots of velcro in different places, just as june-was-shining said.........
juneee...........ironing is something that wimmen (and some men) used to do, long, long ago.......

Tatinha

Ok Lela, they were inseparable. One last question tough. Were their jackets joined by their shoulders or their armpits?

juneshone

maybe a lot of velcro or poppers involved. I think they are just getting into their stride for the day and mud stomping is the first of their activities. they will soon scruff up beautifully. What is this ironing?

lelabugosi

Heidi-half-human-half-?..........You have exposed yourself for what you truly are.......for you know nothing about HUMAN BEINGS!!........(And I imagine you know A LOT about fat old men on pink bicycles!)....
Mr.Squatty-Squirt......HMPH!!.....
Juneee-was-shining.......Thank you for a breath of logic and understanding in this cloud of misinformation......
Tatty-from-Brazil......Unclebluebottle always used to iron the children's clothes himself.......He had a triple-sized ironing board for the jackets of the co-joined twins + one, as the jackets were joined together at the shoulders, making one garment (The boys would all step into the 'jackets' at the same time)......

Tatinha

I've got your point June, but they look into uncomfortable clothes for a average kid's messy life. Let's ask Lela. Do people do ironing in Bugosiland?

juneshone

for a parcel of kids at play they all look suitably rumpled to me, if mine had come in looking tidy I would have got the thermometer out, and probably dosed them with castor oil or some other noxious medication

patsquire

Oh, Heidi-of-the-bendy-watches, you are so right! It's refreshing to see some true insight around Bugosiland these days. And you said it so well, so succinctly! I've nothing to add.

Surreal_Heidi

I know a LOT about collie puppies, and little calves, and baby birds, and newborn foals, but next to nothing about human crumb crushers. But I doubt that anything descended from Uncle Bluebottle or the Bugosis could truly be called ''human''.

lelabugosi

Yes, raincoat-infusion, they do take after my side of the family.....at least in the beautiful ear department........and moreover you are right too, also, as well about being rumpled - otherwise what would be the point of being outside?....I fear the surreal-collie knows little about little ones......

teamac

I have to ask something.....I have looked and looked at this photo...and I cant tell for sure the shape of the ears on these little fellers....but they remind me of our dear Lela. They do not seem to resemble Uncle BB at all.
And also too, as well, I would like to say that children always look a little rumpled after being outside. I do not think they look unkept.

lelabugosi

He would be very proud, I'm sure.......Hee-Hee!...........

gemstone

It's odd...your uncle Buzz looks much younger than you! :DDD

P.S. And he did all this just so you could ride around on little pink bikes?

patsquire

Yep, there he is, uncle Buzz. Notice how the pilot and co-pilot were tall guys, since they got to sit in the cockpit seats with plenty of head and leg room, while the other three, who sat further back in the fuselage were all short.

Here's another link with their names and ranks:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:DoolittleRaiders_Crew5_060217-F-1234P-113_1.jpg

As far as being the "gunner" went, they took out the twin-.50 tail guns and replaced them with broomsticks painted black, because weight was so critical and fuel so precious. Each plane carried only four 500-pound bombs (three high explosive and one incendiary), and they did NOT return to the aircraft carrier. Too far. They flew on past Japan to land in China (a few made it) or ditch along the coast. [The Japanese slaughtered 250,000 Chinese civilians in retaliation.]

lelabugosi

old-furniture-chomper-madam-not-chomping.......Did I forget to mention that they were Bonga-Bonga's only co-joined twins + one?............Well, they were.......
Hanne-with-pipe.......They simply stepped into their jackets and shirts........
Tatty-from-Brazil.......They were happy just to lean on one another....without bzzzzzzzzing........
precious-pebble.............please don't encourage him!!................

gemstone

Okay, psquirt, I even googled (which I seldom do)...is he the little guy on the right-hand side of the picture...too hard to read names on jackets and I couldn't see any stripes?

Tatinha

Never buzz, never be sounds to me they had/have a boring life.

Elfie

Do you really think so?? What a job to have them dressed then!!

lelabugosi

Heidi-of-the-surreal-half-dog.......You must understand that unclebluebottle was always very bizzy, what with learning to fly and inventing inventions of his own invention.........he can hardly be blamed if his children looked unkempt, and either buzzed or didn't buzz........
thousands-of-cakes.........Yes, "Buzz uttered not a single 'buzz' during his entire lifetime" - meaning that he never bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzed.......''while uttering the phrase 'Be no more' " means that he spoke, though without bzzzzzzzzzzzzzing............I hope I have made myself clear......
Mr.Squat-Squirt..........Whatever.............

grannygoatlady

Upon viewing and reviewing the picture of these 3 young lads, it appears they are connected at the shoulder....could this be the first documented photograph of Bonga-Bonga co-joined twins + one......

patsquire

Where do you get a bomber crew with names like these: Davy Jones, Rusty Wilder, Gene McGurl, Denver Truelove and Buzz Manske, eh? Talk about an all-American crew!

patsquire

Sorry Heidi-of-the-bendy-watches, I didn't mean to ignore your comment. Speaking as a man, and for ALL MEN EVERYWHERE, there's no such thing as spending "too much time" exploring the birds and the bees.

Gemmy, as a matter of fact, to be sure, he most certainly did! You can find him in the photos from the famous raid. Little short guy, ideally suited to those surprisingly little planes. His actual title was flight engineer/gunner. He was a sergeant then, and became an officer after the war.

Surreal_Heidi

I hope Uncle Bluebottle did a better job caring for his 3 sons better than he did caring for his daughter. I can't see in this shot if they're as unwashed and rumpled as Berenice. He probably was a lousy father, since the boys grew up killing bug(osi)s and bees for a living. There's a LOT of resentment there. Lela, I'm surprised that you even acknowledge him as a relative!

gemstone

And did he have a buzz cut?

patsquire

I had an uncle named Buzz. Buzz Manske. He went on the Jimmy Doolittle raid on Tokyo, crew chief on one of the B-25s. Buzz survived the war and retired as an Air Force colonel.

cakes1947

Lovely looking boys with that beautiful blonde hair!! But I need something explained.........if Buzz uttered not a single 'buzz' during his entire lifetime ........ what the heck is ''while uttering the phrase ''Be no more''????? Thanks for a fun puzzle Lela!! :)))
(time, 1:39)

Surreal_Heidi

No wonder their mother went nuts! Uncle Bluebottle spent too much time exploring the ''birds and bees''.

patsquire

Tsk, tsk, oy!

lelabugosi

Yes, that's what I called them also, as well, too.......

patsquire

Shinymonth, are you being a little naughty?

juneshone

Well, the little B's

lelabugosi

bookie-person........I believe they are bald......actually, standing in mud was one of their favourite pastimes, and this is them looking happy!...
precious-pebble......you appear to have an infatuation with knees.......
Mr.Le-Squat-Squirt, or whateveritis you are now called......Yes......sort of......I was whacked many a time with the left boot of the non-buzzing Buzz...............to the sound of "Be no more"......

patsquire

In silence, at least for Buzz.

patsquire

Sort of like the Pep Boys, Manny, Moe & Jack of the famous automotive maintenance and supply stores here in America. Except, of course, instead of keeping cars going, Bernie, Ben and Buzz nailed gnats, bashed bees, mangled mosquitos, whacked wasps, flakked flies and butchered bugs.

gemstone

I guess Berenice is what they call the Bee's Knees...ah, those cute little Bugosi knees again.

bookish

The threesome look so sad, standing in mud. BTW, are they blond or bald?
