We’ve got so much to tell you about all the things we’ve been doing over this past week, and Grammy just can’t seem to get off her duff and help us get the pics, etc. put together to get goin. She’s looking at all the stuff she’s got to do around here before Christmas and getting tired before she even starts! PEOPLE! They are just so strange sometimes!
First, Grammy got a call saying that her son, Little Bear, and his Mom were coming out for a visit for the WHOLE day!!!! She was so excited she started working on the house and got out that nasty, noisy sucking machine again, which ticked off Grandma OC, Uncle BG AND Mama Dott. We just decided to beat a quick retreat and headed outside.
Things got changed, and she only got to see Little Bear for a few hours when they came out so that he could ride his Quad in the pastures and dirt roads around here with his dad. She was happy that she got to see him, but disappointed that they couldn’t stay longer.
WE, in the meantime, had to stay in the yard! Talk about DISAPPOINTED!!!
She was afraid that we might end up under the quad or that motorcycle that her son was running around really fast on. Little Bear is just learning how to handle the quad, she said, and might not stop on time.
The motorcycle was new and her son was having fun racing it down the hill in the side pasture, down into the ditch and jumping it out of the ditch. Grammy told us that he is one of the ones that used to “fly” down that hill when it was a VERY windy day, using a homemade “parachute.”
When the two “riders” went out to ride around for a little bit on the dirt roads, Gimli got to go out of the fence on his leash to play for a little bit with their Chihuahua dog, Cassy. Oh, did I tell you we are starting to go to school and learn about leashes and stuff? That will have to be another story, I guess! I told you we have a BUNCH of them!
Grammy was pretty bummed that they had to leave early, so we went out so that GrandPaw could show her some of our agilities obstacles that we’ve been playing on and try to raise her spirits. We saw a hummingbird on the fence for a little bit when we went into the side yard so she could see our A-Frame. Grammy said it was a "God Smile" for her.
Here I am on the A- Frame… Then Mama Dott showed Gimli how to do it…
Finally he got the hang of it and we both did it together. Grammy was proud!
It took that GIRL, our sister, Mercy, a whole nother day to get the hang of it… snicker…
