When mom and dad were in Barkerville they got their picture taken. Prepare yourself…..this is unique my friends.
Today is also Collect Rocks Day so Bashful and Chip went out to the Lane to chat with the local stoners and rockers. I see them headed for home now. They have some pebble with them.
Hey Shoko I would like to introduce you to my new friend. She is very shy.
What is her name Chip? Gee, I don’t know. She grabbed a ride with us when we left Barkerville. Really? Where did she hide? She climbed into the bag with the other flats. She must be hungry….what does she eat Chip? The same as you and Bashful? Yeah, let’s get your mom to give her some of the good stuff, sifted sand. Is she alone or did someone come with her from Barkerville? Another stone came with her. This little pebble is quite young. How old is she Chip? I don’t know for sure but she is around my age. Bashful is talking with her friend and thinks he may stay with her as she is very upset about leaving Barkerville. OK, I’m sure Bashful will help her. You make her comfy Chip and try to find out her name.
Mom is very happy with her canning from the other day. The end is now in sight.
I wonder if Bashful will bring the upset stone home? Guess I’ll find out soon.
You will remember a couple of weeks ago we had a furry visitor. He hung around here for three days…much to Kali and my disgust. He was in great shape and friendly. Dad was getting ready to call him George, so mom knew it was time George was taken to a shelter. George suffered the indignity of getting neutered but that was for the best best to keep the number of kittens in check. He was also given a check up and found to be in excellent health. Mom called today to see how George was doing. Well, yesterday a really nice family adopted him. Mom and dad were so happy! Mom had a cup of tea on Oak St( the name given him by the shelter). Dad, well dad had a beer to celebrate Oak St. getting a forever home.
We like him much better now that there is no chance he’s going to live with us.
Earlier today I got a surprise! Beatrice called to wish me a Happy Gotcha Day. I was delighted to speak with Beatrice and chat away about what she was doing and where she was. She was no longer in the Yukon and had spent weeks at headquarters in Winnipeg learning the camera angles and so on. She was calling from Argentina. It was very hot and she didn’t much care for it. Her work in Argentina would be done in a week so she was happy about that. She wasn’t sure when she would have the time to come home but she wanted to take advantage of the demand for her modelling. We told her we loved her and she gave us many verbal hugs. She’ll call again when she gets the extra time.
