Well, my day just got better and better. After I got the package in the mail from our Great and Wonderful Aunt Gwila, Murphy and Paulette came over and we all got into the travel van and headed up in the mountains.
I knew it was for a demonstration,but I had no idea that it was for a whole group of pretty girls who had been camping since Monday. When we got there, Me and Murphy headed into their big meeting house up on the hill and "oh Boy" it was GREAT.
While My Vickie and Paulette talked for, about forever, Me and Murhpy got to go and sit with the girls. After that we all went out side and Murphy and I got to play hide and seek from with the girls. Of course you can't hide too long from a search dog so we always won.....eventually.
After that, much to Murphys emberassment, all the girls started braiding his hair. You heard me right.....Braided His Hair......
Now I would be mortified, but Murphy, being the "Cool Dude" he is, just laid right down and made the most of it. I mean the guy, just laid there in a sleepy daze and let them BRAID his hair.
After the demo and as we were heading back down the mountain, we came to the most beautiful place I think I have ever seen. I mean, there were all these beautiful flowers, which isn't that unusual out here, but then we came to fields of big orangish red poppies. Hundreds of them, thousands of them.
And of course, Murphy and I HAD to Pose for the camera.
Which of course, we did.....Happily.....
It was so lovely that My Vickie got home and imediately called her mom and they planned a trip out the very next day. This is My Vickies mom in the middle of one of the fields. It shows how really big the blossoms were on the flowers to.....I didn't get to go but My Vickie did take some pictures for me to look at with you.
My Vickie and her mom said, they had never seen such a beautiful site. It was kind of a spiritual thing for them. You know what I mean.....just one of those times when there is no explanation for the joy you feel in your heart.
So I am wishing a field of poppies and all their beauty for all of you this week.
