Last week we had a huge ice storm, then Mom and Dad LEFT!!!
Mom talked to both of us and told us they were going on a little trip, they would be gone three days and two nights, but they WOULD BE BACK!!!
Then she petted us and gave us kisses on the nose and really nice back scratches and asked us to do a good job of taking care of everything while they were gone.
We gave Mom lots of kisses on her hand and arm and said we would.
It was a LONG TIME UNTIL THEY GOT BACK!
Three days is FOREVER!!!!!
Yes, Shannon came up and took us for walks with the our dog cousins, and Misty and the little kids came over and checked on us….
BUT IT JUST WASN’T THE BEST…………..
We needed Mom and Dad!
Then they were here! Yippee! Boomer laid all over Dad’s feet and I laid right by Mom’s chair until bedtime, then we both slept in the bedroom with OUR PEOPLE!
While they were gone we had another ‘gully-washer’ so none of us could go out and start putting the farm to bed.
Gradually the days dried out and then on the warmest day ever (and I do mean HOT) Mom and Boomer and I and DAD all went out to gather in the siphon tubes
and the roll-out ditches and to pick up all the orange dams. Then we got the metal dams and stored them also.
Dad checked the corn out…still to moist, maybe by Halloween the harvest will start.
Boomer checked out all the raccoon poop and foot prints.
I stayed with Mom. I always stay right with Mom wherever she is ALWAYS!
That’s my job!
Taking care of Mom!
It sure was HOT! Whew! After all the cold we’ve been having to have a normal temperature day was rather, well…WARM!
Coming back home we all trouped into the house—first Mom, then Boomer and then me.
Monkey at her normal spot
Then Dad came in and made lots of noise, he dropped something I don’t know what….and
Tee Hee …we all laughed out-loud!
She didn’t think it was funny!
BUT WE DID!!!
Sure was a good day!
