She did it again. Went to the cool mountains without me. Miss Vickie went too, without Bert. Has my MOM lost her mind? What if she needs me? What if a bear jumps out from behind a tree, who will be there to protect her? What if she gets lost, who will help guide her home? What if she has a good time without me? Then when she got home, after it was dark, ( I was so worried. Bert kept telling me it would be OK and not to worry unless the sun comes up and she is not back.) she showed me pictures of what she did. There were A LOT of pictures. Let me just show you a few.
The torture, she took pictures of sticks I would like. REALLY?
Yes that one would be nice too.
I like this one alot, but it would be better if I saw for myself.
MOM says this is how sticks are made, by pregnant trees.
I couldn't look at any more photos of trees, ponds, wildlife, and especially sticks. But MOM said she saved the best for last. Take a look at these sticks.
Droooool. Oh that pile of sticks looks so good!
Why is MOM carrying those sticks? I should be carrying sticks.
Oh now she is taking them for a ride?!
I am not sure what "saving the best part for last" means, but I do not like it. First she goes to a great place without me, then she takes pictures of sticks, then she is gathering sticks, then she gives the sticks a ride. Best for who MOM? Not me.
While I sat on my bed sulking MOM went out to the Blazer and then called me to the patio. She had to call me twice. And what did my eyes see?
Glorious STICKS! She brought them home for me. She felt so bad for not having me with her, she had to bring me a present. OK, it's still not as good as gathering the sticks myself with her, BUT still it's pretty great.
These sticks came from a Beaver area. Yep a Beaver cut them down and removed the bark and, I would guess, was going to use them in building up a dam.
I do feel kind of bad that the Beaver lost some of his/her lumber but MOM said she left the Beaver a Home Depo gift card so they could get some supplies.
I think I will give the "smaller" one to my friends Murphy and Stanley. They are going to love it. The next few days I will have MOM show you more pictures of the beautiful place she went to and the wonderful things she saw. She even has pictures of a Moose (up close and personal). Can't wait until me and Bert get go with our MOM's. Then it will be perfect.
Gotta go and chew my Beaver sticks.
