Day 807: A Busy Saturday

Fanks to my insistent belly, we got up really early and got our day started wif the tasty breakfast foods!
And then as soon as daylight came... Me and the Bleu took the Mom out for a walk frew our not so scenic but shnoofy filled neighborhood. And inspired by the Miss Khyra and her the Mom and their wonderful Walkin Wednesdays, we did our best to video a small portion of our walk... but it took four takes! [The Phyllis is gooooooood!!!!! She make it look effortless, and I am hear to tell you... it ain't!!!!!]

When we got home, me and the Bleu drained the water bowl a few times, panted a lot and then began to nap. The Mom started cleanin out drawers, dustin, vacuumin, moppin and airin up bicycle tires. And the squirrels launched an air strike of unripened pecan bombs onto the roof of the house, until....

I convinced the Mom to let me go outside! A minute or so later, she saw me in a catatonic state, staring at the oak tree trunk. She called my name, and a squirrel 180 degrees around the trunk scurried up the tree. The Mom began filming as quickly as she could.
 Those tenacious squirrels kept the assault up all afternoon, and here I am workin the pecan tree!
I know they're up there. If only I could climb this tree...!
I did not catch a squirrel today, and that failure didn't bother me nearly as much as my inability to negotiate the obstacle course banishment from the kitchen, as the floors were bein deep cleaned!

All in all, it's been a great day. We may not have done spectacular fings, but we did mildly adventurous fings... TOGETHER. And that's what's important!

I agree, the most important part is being together! I was really hoping that you were going to catch a squirrel, though! Darned tree rats!

Hi Luke! Again, it's been waaaaay too long since we've visited and I am soooo sorry you didn't nail that furry varmint! I can't get 'em either, but I sure try hard - pesky things, aren't they? I love the expectant look on your bootiful face as you stare at the object of your disaffection heheh! Mom was quick to catch you in action - Brava, Mom! And Mom, if you want to hit our place with all the mops and stuff like that, please come on over!!!! Have a good weekend and hugs to the Bleu too!
Sammie, Avalon and Mom

Yes, Miss Khyra does make easy looking walks. We want the ones where a squirrel runs in ring of them. And speaking of the tree rats, excellent work.

When we lived in a subdivision there were squirrels everywhere--They were even in our attic, and one day 1 even fell out of a tree right in front of us--Our pups were so shocked they didn't know what to do and just stood there--I'll bet YOU wouldn't have that problem! :-))
