The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Mom Did This to Me, Friday, January 20, 2023

Because we sometimes have weather like this

Mom thought I had better have a coat

A COAT!!!?

What does a girl do with a COAT?

I showed Mom.

I just stood there and would NOT move.

Finally, Mom took it off so I could walk around.

(She isn’t going to trap ME in a coat!)

The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Getting Closer, Friday, December 23, 2022

It’s been super cold here.

Like almost Zero cold

We don’t like going outside.

But we do. (Business to take care of, you do understand)

Sometimes we go with Mom

Sometimes we run out the door with Dad


Mostly we stay inside by the fire

Just say’n.

Oh! Yes!  It’s almost Christmas!

Merry Christmas from Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai

The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-A Cat’s Purpose, Well, at Least Mine, Friday, December 09, 2022

You might think a cat’s purpose

Is to sit on your lap and purr.


Not my purpose.

I only sit on Mom’s lap WHEN I WANT TOO

If she picks me up

I jump right back down.

Now if I JUMP up,

then YES,

I will sit there and let her pet me and I will purr.

For me

My Purpose

Is to protect the farm

And I take it very seriously

I travel here

And there

And all over.

After all—

The dog just stays in the house

Unless she is with Mom.

Just Say’n,

TLC Cai-Cai

The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-COWS!!!! COWS!!!!, Friday, December 2, 2022

Traalalalla—“Let’s go do the chickens with Mom, Boo Berry.”

“Okay, doaky.”

“Bye—I’ve got stuff to do.”

“Not me, I stick to Mom like glue.” Boo Berry Betty replied.

“Works for me.” TLC Cai-Cai hollered as he took off to do whatever it is he liked to do.

“Come on Boo Berry, we’ve got stuff to do.  This is a big day.”

Mom scooped me up, put me in the pick-up with Dad and we headed down to —I don’t know where.  I can’t see out, and I don’t like to look out.

Then we were there.

And so was a big truck and a HUGE truck Mom called a semi.





Shudder and shake

“You stay in here, Girly Girl”, Mom said, as she gave me a kiss on the nose.  “The cows have come!”

Wow! Those are HUGE ANIMALS!


It wasn’t long before we were heading back to the house.

There I met TLC — “HUGE ANIMALS HAVE ARRIVED ON THE FARM!”  I barked at him.

“I know,” he replied.  “Cows, they come this time every year.  We have to be careful around them and not get kicked.”

“I don’t plan on ever being around them,” I expounded to TLC Cai-Cai.  “Those feet are bigger than the both of us!”

“Yep, you are right.  Hey, race ya to the house.  Whoever gets there first gets to get in first!”  TLC took off in a mad dash.

“You can’t beat me!” Boo Berry Betty ran equal to TLC Cai-Cai arriving at the back door at the same time.

“You silly little creatures,” Mom reached down and petted us. “You can’t go in until I open the door.”

As soon as the door was open, TLC ducked under and flew right into the kitchen—Boo Berry right behind him

“What would I do if I didn’t have you crazy cute animals to liven up the day?” Mom laughed as we all tumbled into the kitchen.

“Whew, Boo Berry…thankfully there are no cows in the house!”

“Yes! What a terrible thought that is.  But we are safe in here.”

The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-WOW! Really WOW!, Friday November 25, 2022

The corn harvest has started!

Mom says, “We are on our way!”


I can handle it when I am with Mom.  That is about all.

(Oh, By the way—

the cat hides in the house.  At least I’m with Mom!)

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai and Boo Berry —SCATTER— Chapter 10, Friday, September 30, 2022

I was out and about just enjoying myself

Doing this and that

The dog, our dog—Boo Berry Betty—had come out

Then had gone back in.

I was getting a tad bored


So, I headed to the dirt pile

This is a big pile of dirt Dad keeps for

Repairing the roads, and ditch banks

And stuff like that

So anyway, Out I went

It was warm and sunny

I decided Mouse would taste good

Right about now.




The only thing left for me to do

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai and Boo Berry —SCATTER— Chapter 9, Friday, September 23, 2022


“Who?” TLC Cai- Cai asked as he lazily walked toward me.


Black Beauty,

and Kia!”

“Oh, I like Black Beauty”

TLC Cai Cai exclaimed!

“I don’t think I like ANYONE!

If Mom stays,

I will be okay— I can handle the company.

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai and Boo Berry —SCATTER— Chapter Eight, Friday, September 16, 2022

“Gosh, Boo Berry Betty.  Mom and Dad have been B.U.S.Y!”

“I see that.  They are going here and there and everywhere on the farm, in the yard, just everywhere.”

“Yes, and you have to FAST if you want to get inside and eat something.”

“Or just get inside, it’s HOT out here.”

“Aren’t you glad we are NOT people?  Their work seems so HARD, Boo Berry Betty, we just get to do fun things all the time.”

“Yeh, but—we can’t go in when we want to.”

Why do you worry, you only come outside when you are with Mom?”

“Well, outside is so BIG!  I just like inside better.” Boo Berry Betty replied.

“What are Mom and Dad doing now, TLC Cai-Cai?”

“Gosh, Boo Berry Betty, they SCATTERED!”

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai and Boo Berry —SCATTER— Chapter Six, Friday, September 2, 2022

Okay, dokay, Mom and I were at the Upper End where Mom was busy taking photographs of ever so much,

and I was sniffing the air

from the safety of my little blue seat.

Blue for me. Boo Berry Betty.  Boo Berry cereal is blue, so therefore Mom buys me lots of BLUE stuff.  Besides, Mom told me blue is her first favorite color with lavender her second. So, my name being Boo Berry Betty told Mom she and I were perfect for each other.

Anyway, I got sidetracked.

Mom and I were out on the farm taking photos and smelling all the cool smells on the farm.

Mom saw the little chipmunk, who lives somewhere in the thicket behind the equipment. This little animal likes to run around on the header for the grain combine.  Mom likes to hoover close by to see if she can get any photos of critters who want to run around on the grain header.

Yep, she got a good one! (after Mom put out a small handful of treats 😊)  Chippy has a fun smell too.

Then Mom and I drove to the pond between the Upper End and the Back Forty where Mom SAW A BUTTERFLY!

(I smelled a Giant wild, HUGE wild, Doglike thing; I wonder if that is what Mom calls a coyote?  I just smelled it; the scent was very faint.)

Mom very carefully tried to get a photo of the BIG white butterfly with black trim on its wings.  Mom was hoping to get a really good photo because she thought it might be a Snow Apollos or Rocky Mountain Parnassian, or something like that.

Just as Mom snapped another bazillion shots of the butterfly it lifted up and flew away.

Mom reached out to give me a pat when


Every which, where, and even Up!


Is just what Mom and I did (after a few more photos)

and I was getting nervous.

Mom started the four-wheeler, flipped it into gear and we were GONE!
