Remember how My Vickie told you all about how she gets rid of flies. The copper wind twister with the crystal in it. Well those are not only good for keeping flies away but the one that hangs outside by our picture window is also our afternoon entertainment. Can you see what happens to my picture on the wall. Our room is full of these big colorful reflections that dance through the living room like little magical faeries.
It is way cool
We are still having tons of trouble with our internet. It takes about five minutes for each of your blogsites to come up and another five or six tries before we can leave a comment. So we wanted you to know, we are reading them as often as we can but it takes so long, we just give up on commenting until we get this fixed.
In the mean time I still get all that I want, swimming, playing with friends, walks and now I have a new friend who comes and takes me jogging. with her a couple of times a week. (Thanks Roselyn, plus we love it when your mom and you come visit, especially when you bring us treats)
My Buddy Goose is coming today to stay for a few days. I was not able to contact him and warn him before he came......so here is what happened.
You see Allred has found a new place to scope out his victims. He has figured out how to get onto the shade tarp just above the entry gate. Oh he is a sneaky one.
BTW Roo, My Vickie said that Allred got his name in a very boring way. When Allred moved in with us, She was reading a book by Garth Allred. She was on the phone talking to someone about this crazy cat who had taken possession of my world when they asked "What did you name the cat" She looked around trying to think of a fitting name and saw the cover of the book. Thus the name Allred was born. That's it, nothing special, just grabbing things out of the air. Who would have thunk.....
Anyway, I didn't warn Goose of where Allred was waiting and well, Well, all I can say is, "Poor Goose" He got the surprise of his life.
I bet he aged 2 years when Allred flew off his perch landing just inches from Goose who was waiting for Michelle to return snarled at him and ran into the house. Poor Goose. He is still out there looking up at the shade screen in fear, just in case the beast returns.
Truth is, we are all just a little afraid of that area of the play area now.
My Vickie and John went for a quick hike last night and boy did they strike it big. They have been hoping all season that the Moose would return to our area and guess what? They found 8 moose on their short three hour hike. And the guy in the picture above was the smallest of the bulls. I mean, My Vickie and John were like two little kids laughing and talking about their hike all day today.
They found two mommas with babies. Now normally we have twins about 90 % of the time but this year they all seem to just have one. But oh, my aren't they cute.
Here is a short video of this youngin as it wanders through the area about 30 feet from My Vickie.
He tried two times to come and play with her, but she told him, that it wasn't a good idea and that she didn't think his mom would be happy with that. So they just checked each other out from a distance. Anyway, check him out.
As the sun was setting they came across this momma, the dear and if you look to the left you can see her youngin heading to a bull who is up on the hill. That didn't go over well cause Momma came and chased the bull away about 40 seconds later.
The sunset was incredible for them too. It was like the perfect evening, except for the fact that I wasn't there. Oh well, I gotta let her go off on her own now and again. You know, so she can learn to be independent and all.
Back home, I got this bandanna in the mail from Osker a while back. I kept trying to figure out what you do with a bandanna
I felt like one of those Pioneer women who crossed the plains with it on my head. that can't be right....
Seriously, this just cant be right. Osker what do I do, what is this for, how do I wear it.
OH, I get it....this is for me to wear around my neck to let you know that I am a host to the Olympic games.
Now that is better, I look way better with it around my neck. So thanks to all of you who entered the Jumping Portion of the Olympics. My Vickie and I are excited to put together our post for this event.
So we are off to try and pull up a few posts before midnight. Crazy Internet.
See you all soon......I hope
