Gus taking a well deserved swim.
Just do not stand too close when he gets out.
A little worm story
The other day while picking snap peas in my garden.
I had a bit of a problem.
I was wearing my Crocs (without socks..of course) and just having the best time standing there
eating and picking peas...when I felt a little coolness on the side of my foot.
I thought...just a piece of grass or a weed...(you see I was standing on straw..about 4 inches of it).
It never occurred to me what it actually was.
A WORM the size of Kansas!!!!!
Before I could register what was happening...
It shot into my Croc like a rocket and went under the arch of my foot!!!!!
Squirming around like the evil little slimy thing that it was.
I was jumping around...peas were flying...along with a scream or two....
and maybe a few other words...
I finally flung my Croc...along with the giant worm across the yard.
It took me a Yuengling and two hours of therapy to get over it.
You see...I have a worm phobia.
For some reason...I don't know why those little critters jump out of the ground at me.
I do not know why they torment me so.
My onion crop.
Or part of it anyway.
My Walla Wallas are really nice this year.
I knew that old Charleston Forge bakers rack
would come in handy some day.
A pretty classy onion dryer...if you ask me.
We are the only folks around with a Parkway tag on our Gator.
(Don't tell LTM or he will have to get one too.)
Zippy and I took a walk up to my neighbor's property the other day. I needed a break after the (shudder)...
It is almost a mile walk one way.
Guess who followed me??
She had a great time and took a long cat nap afterwards.
This is Oracle.
He is a "special" horse.
We got him from a very special family member and he means a lot to us.
He is a wild man.
Almost to the point of being a little crazy.
I really just think he is a genius.
He is a lot like Zippy.
Even the others think he is a bit nuts.
Always entertaining and always perfect when we ride.
His wildness is really more of a playfulness.
A personality the size of Earth.
All in one small little Paso Fino package.
He and Zippy are two animals that share a certain....how shall I say this...
Always into something.
The funny thing is that they seem to have a kindred spirit.
They like each other, but they also are a little scared of each other.
"They" played this little game the other day.
Zippy rolled the ball under the fence.
Oracle chased it.
Then I retrieved it........Somehow I became involved.
Then I had to throw the ball for Zippy....
Then it all started again.
This photo shows Oracle's true spirit.
I just liked this shot.
Zippy says......No Pupdate
we are picking her up tomorrow!!!!!!
Stay tuned for a cuteness extravaganza.
Thank you Lee Ann for the fantastic bag of goodies for little Smudge!!!
Also a note about my friend in the hospital...She is still there and still fighting hard. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
