Here I am cozied up in the shack and Happy, so far today, has enjoyed:
Early morning treats with LB at 5:00
Sleeping in ’til 8:30
Running with me
Another treat (I spilled my shower on him, poor boy!)
A nice mid-morning nap
An outing to the PO and the OC
An early sup at 3
And a good rousing of the Titty Tat.
Now he’s whining at me and my response: “What do I look like? The Entertainment Committee?” At which point, I bust up. I think of M. I have just listened to M’s message on my phone (right before rousing of Titty)… “Hi Pol, um, I’m just calling because I’m thinking about next weekend. It’s the first day of hunting season and um, I was wondering if you maybe wanted to call AOK and Milk Made to go for a little thrift shop in Farmington or something. I was just thinking that would be fun, so give me a ring when you get a chance so we can chat about it. OK? Love you, bye.”
This makes me think about long summer days when Bro and I were just wee brats with trees to climb, a stream to paddle or fish or catch frogs in, holes to dig, pea shooters to shoot, gloves, bats, balls, bikes, Mario Bros., books, crafts, cookies to cook, and Friends, and still we whined, “MMMMMM, there’s nothing to doooooo.” To which, her response, “What do I look like? The Entertainment Committee?”
Hahahaha. So why do I write of this? Two reasons:
I don’t know if I’ve made this clear, BUT reading this blog would be more fun if more thrifters would ex-press themselves and just write a line or two. I can’t possibly get to all the thrift stores in the state (especially with an animal to entertain) in a decent amount of time as to have this blog be accurate and up to date. Comment, Ya’ll! I know you thrifters are out there!
My response to M was an obvious, “Yes!” and she still is, as evidenced by the phone message relayed above. She wants to go thrifting! Woop! So this is an all call to girls to get out and thrift on Saturday. I think we should all Orange Up (or should we choose our own color?) for the fun of it. Let us call it Shopping Season. Now, what’s Happy going to do on Saturday?
