A Busy Week…Part 1 By BG

This has been a very busy week for Grammy and a kind of boring one for us. Grammy and Papa’s oldest son had driven from Florida to CA for his 20 year Class Reunion and to be here for Kody Bear’s baby sister’s Dedication up in their town

He spent the rest of the week up there visiting, but Grammy had gotten so behind with all the other stuff she’s been doing, that she had to spend the week cleaning… and do THAT without water, cause our waterline broke again!

We DID get to go out on a few Squirrel Patrols, and those were a LOT of fun. Even Grandma OC got to come out and go with us one time.

We got a chance to see that new “Train Thing” that Grammy had been talking about. It is REALLY BIG!!! It would make a great Mango Cave!

A big truck had brought it in a few weeks ago, and put it in the back of our side pasture. 

That is where they had been putting all the stuff they’d brought from Papa’s Auntie’s house.

It is our opinion that it is NOT a good thing. It looks like it was specifically MADE to become a Squirrel and/or rabbit condo!!!

Mama Dott and little Pippin CAN get under one end of it, but Grammy and GrandPaw don’t like that because they are afraid of spiders and snakes under there, so, after these pictures, they decided they would put a piece of board there to keep them out. THAT will leave holes that are just right for rabbits and squirrels and leave US no way to get to them.

THIS IS HORRIBLE!!! Can you just imagine those nasty things sitting right there just out of reach and TEASING US?!?! 

It is bad enough that they try that under that old “Dart” car of Grammy’s other son. At least we can usually manage to spook them out from under THERE with enough circling and digging…

The inside of that thing is like a huge room and it is really stuffy.

There are all sorts of smells in there, too, but we can only go in when Papa or someone else is going in. Other than that, they close the door and it is dirt and water tight.

It was a lot more fun this weekend, because Little Kody Bear got to come on Friday and he stayed until today (Monday.) We’ll have to fill you in on how our weekend went the next time.

you guys do sound like you are busy, Linda! but I'm glad the corgis had a chance to at least do a few squirrel partrols :)


Kari in WeHo said...

Oh my I sure hope the squirrels dont move in there!


Chatty Crone said...

Linda so good to hear from you.

May I say that blue crate (?) is the biggest thing of it's type I have ever seen in my life. Is that a railroad car?

Is that all filled out with stuff?

What ever in the world are you going to do with all that stuff.

Bless your heart.

I was happy to see Miss Sadie and that Grammy kept that mean OC from bugging her. I caught OC's little wipe out by the storage house. Whoops. Seems like there is a lot going on there.

Cute video; Squirrel patrol sounds like a lot of fun. Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for visiting my blog and your gracious comment. Hope you are having a great week.

Maybe Mango RH would like THAT to be The Beastie's new place and not his purple house of love!

Thanks fur sharing your great adventures!


Slamdunk said...

Peanut said...

Well, that didn't sound like a boring weekend at all. In fact we thought you all had great fun.
Well except Grammy - cleaning with no water is no fun!
That container is the biggest scariest container we ever did see.
Is there a monster inside?
