today is the dreaded start of Hurricane Season, Yikes, I was
in a good mood with a list of things to do!
First off, coffee on the screen porch.................
Get the wash out on the lines...................
Stroll the back and take pictures of the new blooms....
Like the Dinner Plate Hibiscus.........
My Rose Tree has 5 blooms opening...............
Then head to the front for a look..................
This Coral Bougainvillea is stunning !
Yea! The Zinnia's in the St. Francis bed are blooming!
A white Rose of Sharon full of blooms!
The Pink Hydrangea................
A lone Canna blooms..................
On the front porch one little baby left in the nest!
We thought there were 5 but discovered it was 6 !
The other 5 flew yesterday but this one is timid I guess!
I shooed him out and his Mommy who was scolding us both,
took over and away they flew!
I went in to fix up a package for a friend. I decided as the saying
goes, " to kill two birds with one stone". I would take the package
to the UPS Store and then take Sadie and Jake( dog-kids) to the vet.
They need their annual check-up and shots. We are going to board
them this weekend and they have to be current on shots.
BAD MISTAKE!! Here's where my good morning ended!
As I made my way down HWY 49 to the UPS store, A traffic jam!
Having grown up here, I knew a short cut, problem solved. I get
to the store, get out with package and wallet, crack windows and
assure Sadie and Jake, Mommy will be right back!
It took all of 5-8 minutes to mail package! I go back out and to
my horror, Jake has regurgitated all of his big breakfast all over
the back seat of Pearlie May,( my car) and in the front passenger
seat! I was aghast that not one bit was chewed up! I never knew
he ate his food without chewing it! He was standing in my seat
drooling down my window, wet face, chest and front feet foaming
at the mouth!! Of course when I go to move him, it gets on me!
Poor Sadie who was obviously disgusted, had hunkered down
in the back passenger side floor board! She's pregnant you know,
which means a weak stomach!
Poor Jake! I had never left him in the car and I guess he panicked!
Talk about stressed! When we got to the Vet, no way was he coming
out of that car! Needless to say....I had pure HELL trying to get two
little dogs into the Vet! I told the receptionist; I need to be at the
shelter dropping off instead of here spending money! AHWWWW
she says; you know you wouldn't take nothing for them babies!
Right now, I'd give Jake away, I said!
I got back home thinking the rest of my morning would be spent
shampooing the car seats. Instead, Hubby who by the way, begged
off from going with me to " help " with the kids, is out cleaning the car!
He felt bad for not going I guess ?? I'm picking them up in his truck! HA!
This is meant to give you a laugh at my expense! It probably was very
funny to an on looker. That is the part where the six pound dog is pulling
me backwards in the Vet parking lot!
