Well I am very excited to show you the latest leg of Pip's World Bucket Tour.
Pip is not feeling so well and he is an older guy. But rather that just sit around Pip, with his nurse Puddles is going on a word, blog tour. Places he has always wanted to see. So today he has stopped by my neck of the woods and I could not be more honored. You can click on the photos to make them bigger to really experience the tour in your face.
Pip arrived in Puddles fashion. Even though I had MOM clear the drive way of the snow, Puddles managed to end up in a snow bank.
While Puddles and I dug the World Tour car out of the snow bank my MOM took Pip to the hospital to do rounds with my buddy Bert and his Vickie. Pip brought much joy and comfort to many at the hospital, both patients and staff. Everyone loved Mr. Pip.
Next stop, me and MOM's church. I think Bert was a little embarrassed that that Pip and Puddles would actually sit on the altar. I said, "At least they are not swinging from the chandlers."
I spoke to soon. Bawhahhahaa
I know I could have taken Pip to see the capital and famous land marks here in Utah. But to be honest I wanted to show Mr. Pip my world here. And that really does not include capitals and the tabernacle choir, as great as they are. So our next stops were places I love to go, the Fort and the Pond.
We hooked up with a few of my friends. Puddles had a few to many "beverages" and just could not stay on the log. She kept falling off. But Pip was a pro and rode the log like a snowboard.
Bert gave Pip a ride he would never forget. I think he might have a future in being a jockey.
Of course Puddles wanted to give it a try. Bert said she was all mine. hehehhe
We stopped on the bride that crosses the river. I was pointing out some ducks swimming when all of the sudden Pip took a header off the bridge!!! My heart stopped.
But never fear, Bert of course was down below in the water and caught Pip.
I thought I'd show Pip and Puddles how to catch fish. Just so happens that Pip brought his fishing hat and who knew Puddles owned a fishing vest.
But then again Puddles fell down, AGAIN. Good thing my buddy Bert taught me how to swim. I jumped right in without a second thought. I mean Pip cannot lose his nurse and driver.
By now we all were getting pretty hungry. Good thing lunch was roaming around. Puddles got to deaded herself a buffalo. More on that later.
We tried once again to sit on a tree. And friends miracles do happen. Puddles actually stayed on the tree. (We ran out of beer so she was sobering up).
We romped up and down snow covered hills.
While MOM was cooking up her world famous Buffalo Burgers from the deaded buffalo Puddles caught, we hung out in the back yard and had some beer and appetizers. And you see that beer there chillin' in the snow? My MOM has had that beer for over 20 years. But because this was a very special occasion she let me break it out and share it with my friends.
This is my MOM's famous Buffalo Cheese burger. We each had three. Oh yum yum!
After dinner we had some bubble fun. Pip was a pro. He was flying through the air, chasing bubbles and laughing. He has the best laugh.
Then we settled in and played poker with some of my neighborhood friends all night long.
Mr. Pip thank you for coming by my place on your tour. I hope you had a good time and were able to cross a few things off your bucket list. You make me see beautiful. You make me laugh. You can really hold your beer for a little guy. You are simply are the best Mr. Pip. And I am honored to be your friend.
