If you were with me yesterday you know my MOM got into a bit of some mischief at my buddy Bert's expense. As I said yesterday, once a week we flood our yard. To answer a question some of you had about that: We do this once a week. Instead of sprinklers to water our yard we have flood irrigation. That means once every 7 1/2 days we get to open the ditch gate and flood our yard to water it for about 3 hours.
You may remember that my MOM thought it would be funny to through Bert's ball in one of the concrete pipes. He totally went nuts trying to get it out. So did he? Lets take a look.
There is me and Bert, and my MOM putting Bert's precious ball in the pipe.
Me guarding one end of the pipe in hopes that it will flow out. Bert losing his mind trying to get the ball from the other end.
Hahahaa. Does this not look like the beginnings of a watery football game?
Bert finally just laid down and just kept watch. It was a sad sight my friends. Sad sight indeed.
The sadness must have gotten to my MOM because she broke out the little rake and push the ball out to Bert.
And he's got it!! Butt now he is worried my MOM might try this little trick again.
So I stood guard over my buddy. "Don't worry Bert I won't let my MOM take your ball. I've got your back. Dude, seriously you do not have to hold your ball under water. You are not a fish, you need air."
Under that mighty paw is Bert's ball. He is not sure if he wants to give it up.
Butt he does. He just can't resist the........
It was a great day spent with my friends. Butt soon Miss Vickie, Bert, Willa, and Scrappy had to go home. Butt then some other friends dropped by for a swim.
Do you see my friends that stopped by for a swim?
This is Fred and Betty.
They fly on over when the yard gets all pond like. They love it.
They waddle around the yard. I love to watch them. Never chase them. My good friend Zim taught me that. I always think of Zim when Fred and Betty stop by.
They bring a smile to my MOM's face too. We just hang out for hours enjoying each others company.
And when they are tired from swimming they settle in under the big cherry tree.
Yep just another BEAUTIFUL day at my place.
