Yes, Elvis is still kinda stinky. I did give him a bath yesterday in some potent soap Uncle D. uses on his coon dogs. It helped a little bit. I think maybe another scrubbing with it today(if it doesnt rain here) might damn near knock the skunk smell out. Then stinky Elvis will need another high dollar dose of his Advantage flea/tick monthly application. That is some great stuff. He NEVER has ticks or fleas and he runs all over the countryside.
When I was outside feeding The Old Guy last nite, hubby and Wee One were out on the front porch until the skeeters got to be too much. Elvis snatched Wee One’s little stuffed horsey that whinneys when you squeeze its belly. Elvis snatched it and ran.
Here he is with his catch. Wee One wanted it back but it was stinky and wet from dog slobber. Also Elvis hid it inside his doghouse for about 5 seconds until he wanted to play with it again. The Old Guy has a thing for this whinneying toy too. He tried to snatch it from Wee One last weekend when we were in the barn!
I’ll be glad when Elvis gets unstinky, Wee One is well behaved when Elvis goes in the car with us.
The Old Guy after I fly sprayed him. Guess he had an itch. He really needs another grooming-badly!!
The Old Guy sticking his tongue out. I went outside yesterday afternoon while Toddler Terror was taking his nap. I did a few things around the yard, picking up sticks and raking some gravel along the edge of the yard. I also gave Scooter a good fly spraying and some cut up carrots to snack on. I took my camera outside to get some good pics of The Old Guy but Wee One woke up from his nap, so no time for good pictures….
But….I did catch a few pictures of this chopper that flew all around my area, for a long time too. All of these pictures are without my zoom.
It was weird because I was out in the front yard raking and I thought I kept hearing a chopper. At first I thought maybe it was LIFEFLIGHT flying to Tulsa but it never went away. Finally they flew right over my house, pretty low. I was watching them and they circled back around a few times. I kept thinking maybe I knew them or our tiny town is getting an important visitor. They never did land anywhere that I know of. I also couldnt see any distinguishing characteristics on the chopper to see who it might belong too. I watched them fly around and could hear them off in the distance for quite awhile.
Hubby had a brainstorm this morning. He said we should rent an RV for our trip instead of driving his new truck. It would probably be the same gas mileage and a lot comfyer(is that a word?comfy?) Anyhow, I am not too thrilled about the idea. I havent watched the new movie out last spring called “RV” but I am sure our trip might resemble something similar to it if we drove an RV. OMG, I cannot imagine! Instead of 19-20 hours one-way on the road, it would be 30 hours one-way. But, just to keep his bitching at bay, Ill call the places in Tulsa and the surrounding areas, get price quotes and hope to hell they are so HIGH DOLLAR that hubby will think his idea is not so great…….
I do not want to drive my car, I want to save miles on it. It already has 16,000 miles on it!
