Howdy Ho Ranger Joe!
As promised, here is my blog on last weekend’s visit to MOG’s house (aka my other grandparents, aka the farm). I was soooo excited when we arrived at the farm on Saturday. I knew exactly where I was! I ran inside the house anticipating a big celebration. To my surprise, NO ONE WAS THERE!!! Egad!
Nada. Nunca. Nilch. Nothing.
Nobody was home! How could this be?! Did MOG forget I was coming over? I checked every nook and cranny in case everyone was hiding for my surprise party and accidentally fell asleep. I was really sad and I whined. 😦
Mommy and Poppa Josh took me outside to play while we waited for MOG to come home. Being outdoors always makes me happy so I quickly forgot I was sad. First, I posed for my “Blue Steel” shot with the pumpkins and got bored. I was uninspired. The lighting wasn’t right! What I wanted to do was pull down the cornstalks.
I stopped pulling on the cornstalks because I was distracted by the turkey, peacocks and chickens saying hello to me. So I ran over to say, “Greetings and salutations!”
I had to stop my conversation short when I saw a tree that was laying on the ground. I was fascinated by such a simple concept. Trees usually stand upright. Why was this one laying down? Was it tired? It turns out grandpa had to cut down some sick trees.
If a tree falls down in MOG’s backyard and no one hears it, does it make a sound? Here’s a better question. Does a sick tree cough?
I don’t know the answer. However, this is where I discovered a new sport…log rolling. Yep. You heard me correctly. I will enter the next log rolling competition. What do you mean you compete on water?! Are you sure it’s not on land? Never mind. I’ll have to find a new hobby. One that doesn’t involve water until I’m ready to take my first swim.
Just when my ADD was about to kick in, I heard a car. MOG’s home!!!!! Grandma was so happy to see me! She left her car with the engine running at the bottom of the long driveway, ran over to me and squeezed me silly.
I spent the night at MOG’s and stayed there until Sunday night. I had a wonderful time! Grandma and Josh’s sister both agreed that I grew really big but I still acted like a puppy. More importantly, they said I’m still Luke. Fame hasn’t corrupted me yet! 😉
I can’t wait until I see them again…which will be tonight! I’m spending the weekend at MOG’s. Yeah! ~Luke
