Mommy and Daddy are still slowly working on the remainder of the house repairs. They put up new house numbers on the Muffin Mailbox. The new numbers will reflect in the dark. Hope these last longer than 6 months. The Florida sun is a killer on these things. With Grandpa Bob getting older (88), it's impawtant for people to be able to find our house in case of an emergency.
Mommy made turkey noodle soup the other day and yum, yum, yum... We've been getting a little bit of turkey and some veggies in our dinners. It's a very hearty soup filled with all good things.
Muffin and I love going for our rides in the golf cart. Mommy took us out on it alone and we behaved ourselves. We both stayed in our bed on the front seat. Mommy harnessed us in so there was no chance of us either falling or jumping out.
Did you see that Squirrel?
The Sand Cranes still come by every day for some bird chow. Muffin and I see them and run outside and bark at them. They start to fly when we scare them. See his big wings flapping in the breeze?
On Sunday, Daddy took Grandpa Bob to the Tampa Bay Buc's football game. Tampa Bay lost by one point.
They both had a fantastic time ~ well, sort of. They ate some shhhhh.....(hot dog's) and drank some beer. It was just us girls home alone and we loved it! (That doesn't happen often.)
The sort of part is this ~ Daddy told Grandpa Bob to STAY PUT AND DON'T MOVE AN INCH so he could take the shuttle to the van then go back and pick up Grandpa Bob at the stadium exit. Well, Grandpa Bob got on a different shuttle and both got separated. Grandpa Bob called Mommy and was a bit in a panic when he couldn't find my Daddy. Then Daddy calls on the house phone and is ^%#))$Q(#$%)@#_@#$%$^&* at Mommy because Grandpa Bob didn't stay put. Like that's gonna help the situation!
So Daddy had to wait for the parking lot to clear in order to find him. Daddy was NOT happy (and we really can't blame him.) All we can say is "Hey, you offered to take him!" (It does upset Mommy because it's hard for her to see these changes in Grandpa Bob.) Pretty soon she's gonna have to pin his name and home phone number on his sweater. Plus he lost his eyeglasses somewhere at the stadium. (Oh, and did we mention he broke a tooth the day before?)
Sunday was also a very special day. Mommy's favorite Florida bird, the Painted Bunting arrived at our feeders this morning. They are in the process of migrating to the Carolina's. In years past, Mommy has attracted them to our yard and they have stayed here for the season. We're hoping that happens again.
These photo's are untouched. Now can you see why this is her favorite? This is the male, isn't be handsome!
We've been enjoying a lot of time outdoors in the beautiful Florida sun. It's been in the 70's here (I know, blah, blah, blah....) so it's not too hot for those of us with fur.
Daddy went and washed the van the other day at the car wash. He keeps saying "a Delta Sonic would be perfect for here." (Delta Sonic is our wonderful car wash where we live in NY. They do it all for you and for a very reasonable price.) We normally do it at home, but there are a lot of dead bugs on the van and we needed the power sprayer.
This is why we always check to see what Grandpa Bob is wearing before being let out of the house. Mommy took one look and said "really Dad?"
And who doesn't love a man who drinks his milk outta a Bud glass! (Sorry Puddles...)
Well that's it for now furends. On to our next adventure!
