Boom and I have been DYING to get to go somewhere, besides just here on the farm….you know—a mini-vacation. By that I mean A RIDE IN THE BACK OF THE PICK-UP!
But it hasn’t been happening!
Yes, we’ve been to the upper end and to the back forty and over to bad burn and irrigating.
We have helped Mom in the yard and even road with Mom to deliver stuff to Uncle Evan’s (although we didn’t get to get out and see Zookie and Bella), but we have NOT got to go for a fun pick-up ride!
A pick-up ride to some place really cool with lots of new smells.
Mom did make her house-cat….Monkey…go outside and work with us in the yard a couple of days.
Boomer and Monkey like each other so they had fun until Monkey went back inside.
Sammy-Sam the outside cat doesn’t put up with Boomer and me very much so he’s no fun.
We just wanted to GO FOR A RIDE!!!!
We would beg and hop up (well, Boomer hopped up, I can’t hop anymore) and put on our happiest faces, even whapped the ground with our tails (well, Boomer whapped, I just wiggled mine).
Nothing was working!
THEN IT HAPPENED!
Mom came out and asked if we wanted to go for a ride!
Yippppeeee! Boy did We!
Dad and Mom gathered up a huge rope and a great big chain, put them in the back of the Dodge with us and headed down to the Canyon!
WEEEE! DOWN TO THE CANYON!
Couldn’t be a better place!
When we got there we saw why—Aunt Shannon had gotten her truck stuck in the spring river run off.
Dad got her right out. Just a quick hook-up and pull.
And we went back home.
Boomer and I loved every second of it.
I sure hope we get to go again soon.
Mom, said she hopes the next trip to the canyon is NOT for something like this!
