Psst! Wanna Do Something Dangerous, Kid?

It’s Thankful Thursday at Brian’s Home and here too.  Me’s was thinkin while lying out on the deck, how comfortable I’s feel here, when Shokos called me from the fence.                                                         

Hey, Tyebe do you wanna see something different and spooky?

You’re not going to chase me’s and snap you’s teeth at me, are you Shokos?  You’s done that before and me’s don’t like it.  You’s have big teeth, Shokos.                                                                                                                  This is the Lane, Tyebe.  Mom will guide you along but stick close to me.  All sorts of vermin and wild cats can be hiding behind the bushes.  Seriously Shokos?  This is really scary!

Tyebe, you gotta come here and sniff. Terrible introoders have been here.

You’s right Shokos, it stinks! It must be them wild cats you were talking about. Me’s wanna go home, me’s scared. Ok, we can head home. Now, you know where I go everyday, Tyebe. Everyday Shokos? You’s must be so brave.

What an exciting day! Me’s very happy to be home though. I’s thankful for my family this Thursday. No matter what I’s do, they stick with me and try to help.

Have a thankful day friends.                                                                    

Tuesday with Tyebe

So what did you do today, Tyebe?                                                       
Well, me’s was busy as a butt. Do you mean busy as a bee? That’s it!

Mom and dad didn’t want me sneaking out under the screen on the sliding screen door so dad built a fortress at the front of the screen and I tried to get out but I couldn’t. No more running around on the front lawn trying to catch bugs. Poopie!  Yuck! That is a horrible word, Tyebe.  It’s supposed to be cause I’s annoyed.

Then I was let out in the backyard so me’s tried me’s balancing on the ledge of the raised garden.


How’d you do kid?  I’s was great.  The ledge had nothing on me’s. Did you fall off?  Ya, a few times and right into the garden but the peas and beans will come back, me’s just jumped on them a few times.

Me’s was pretty tired after a bug hunt and went inside for a nap.                                                            

When me’s woke, me’s tried the screen door again and was running after bugs on the front lawn. Dad caught me and brought me in. Then he fixed more wood in front of the screen door and a cookie sheet.                                                                         

Well, jump on my rump!! I see no way out.                                                             

Good job dad. Youse got me’s. Peeps won’t feel very welcome when they come for a visit though. mol *hic*

In the afternoon mom and me’s played bubbles.  I’s don’t care for this game cause the bubbles burst when me’s whiskers touched them.                                                              

  Mom laughed a lot though.  The bubbles smelled sorta nice like a soapy catnip. 

Shoko bet me’s 5 greenies I’s couldn’t climb the arbor.  Me’s had to show her I’s a big girl, I am, and the arbor is easy as nip.                                                                            See, me’s got up no problem but me’s tell you the coming down was hairy!  I mewed out, ” Stuff me full of feathers and float me to the ground!”

Me’s getting tired so am going to head inside for a wee nap.                                                                  Shoko bring my pillow…you know the one with “Who’s the Boss?” on it.”  mol *hic*                                                                     

Thankful Thursday (Maybe)

 

What’d you call me Tyebe?                                                                 

Me’s called you the blackhead of Fort Meezer.  How rude!  I’m not a blackhead, you alien you.  I’s no alien hiss breath.  You is…I mean are too.  You look like a furry Mr. Spock.                                                                

Seriously?…you hurt me’s feelings Shokos. Me’s don’t look odd. Geez, Tyebe don’t be so sensitive.

Shopping Around The World in July

Aww…tis time for our recipe for a sandwich.  A tasty sandwich says Bacon of Piglove and Shopping Around the World.                                            

We decided on her open-faced bagel sandwich. Mom says it’s tasty and fast.

Alright, here is the recipe.

OPEN-FACED BAGEL SANDWICH

INGREDIENTS:

2 thin slices of mild onion..cupboard
2 small kale leaves……..in garden
dab of mayo…………….fridge
dab of butter…………….cupboard
dab of mustard………….cupboard
1 bagel………………….from Superstore $1.98

4 cheese slices………….. $4.48 for 16 slices                                       

75 grams Black Forest Ham, shaved…$2.97

2 Slices of one tomato, vine-ripened …approximately $1.39

2 tablespoons cream cheese on top of the sandwich.

$3.18

DIRECTIONS:

Cut bagel in half for 2 slices.  Spread butter, mayo and mustard on each side of the bagel.  Then put the small kale leaf and 2 cheese slices on each bagel half.  The hole is covered so nothing will fall through.  Divide your meat between the bagel halves, topping with a slice of tomato each and thin slice of mild sweet onion and finally a very generous tablespoon of cream cheese.                                                                 

There you have it. The perfect meal for a hot day.

Me’s would like Fancy feast beef with a tad of nip on the side.

Remember my friends, stay hydrated as much as possible. We try our best to be full of water here, in fact, Shoko and me’s call mom Mrs. Peealot. mol *hic*

3. The best advice I’ve ever been given is….IF ME’S DON’T WANT TO EAT THEN JUMP ON SHOKO SO SHE CAN’T EAT EITHER……I’S FORGET WHO TOLD ME’S THIS.  IT COULD’VE BEEN MY INNER VOICE. MOL *HIC*                                                4.

Thankful Thursday I say

Today Brian’s Home has Thankful Thursday and I’s thankful for several things.  Just click on the green blog host name and see what the other anipals are thankful for.                                                                 

#1 on me’s list today would be the ability to fly around the backyard and study the bugs with Shokos.  Me’s so lucky to have a backyard with a garden.

Shokos was telling me’s all about worms. They dig and dig with their wee shovels in the ground to make the perfect home and then in October they sprout wings and fly away till next summer.  Imagine!!

 

Shokos story about the worms was so descriptive me’s can picture them.                                                          

Shokos so smart!
