The Magical Water Fountain

This is Deputy Digby Pancake.  Have you ever been walking along during the day, doing the same things that you always do, and all of a sudden you see something that you have walked past a million times?

Well, maybe not a million times, but you get it.  You see something that you might have missed.  Because, well, you’re not looking.  We have been back in this Florida place for a little while now.  And there’s no secret that we haven’t been traveling too much.  Seems like we are trying to rest a little bit, think a little bit and just “bee” a little bit.

We have a good thing going at this camping spot.  It has lots of trails, lots of fields and lots of grass to roll in.

It has a pretty river and swamp which is pretty with all the dirt.  Because that’s what this particular river and the swamp has in them.

Along with dirt, the river and swamp has alligators and frogs and many birds who like it dirty.  It’s in our Florida place and we like the dirty water.  But we sure aren’t going to drink from it.

But the park also has a magical water fountain that no one else knows about except everyone who comes to this park, but I don’t know if they see it.  Certainly, the alligators and the birds and frogs prefer the river vintage of water.

And many people would just pass by this water fountain…except us.  They may just see a water fountain.  But to us, thirsty after a long hike and not able to drink from the river, well, it seems magical to us for sure. Also.  We have never got to drink from a water fountain that tasted so good.

Many may wonder.  Why does the water taste so good from this particular water fountain?  What makes it special? Does it have ice? No.

Does it have Kool-Aid in it?  No.

Does it have..gasp..maple syrup in it?  Unfortunately no.

No.  This magical water fountain makes Girl Person stop and smile as she pulls our favorite cup out of her backpack.  She fills it up all the way.  It takes a little bit of time, but even Sheriff Brickle has to stop and wait and wonder every time…is it going to taste just as good as the last time?  And it always does.

Some persons may think that doing the same thing over and over, or enjoying something over and over will lose its magic.  So they keep searching, they keep trying to find something new.  But what if that something magical is lost because you kept walking? What if we would have never found that magical water fountain?

It’s ok to travel like we do.  It’s ok to have adventures.  But never walk by something magical just to find something else.  You may never know how good it will taste.

What Happens At 10:01?

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle.  Persons are obsessed with time.  Time to get up, time to go to work, time for lunch break, time for a doctor appointment…time, time time.

For Girl Person, when she wakes up and shakes off that Depression Monster in the morning, she gets that mud in a cup she calls coffee.  And we know the clock is ticking.  Towards 10:00 a.m.

Have you ever wished that time would stand still? Sometimes we do.  You see, Girl Person gets her happy on after the mud and then we see the happy Girl Person, the Girl Person with so much energy and optimism.  Almost as much as Digby Pancake.

She hikes with us, makes us breakfast, works and whistles while she is doing it.  Oh, what a lady she is until 10:00 a.m.

But at 10:01 a.m. it is like she turns into an expired coupon at a grocery store with a too diligent cashier.  The wheels stop turning, she starts getting slower and her happy starts to turn into a work mode, get things done kinda thing. She remembers the time and that there isn’t enough of it for the day and she starts to panic.  And I have about had it with this.  I am calling her out.  Girl Person. Is. Arrested. I said it.

Why am I arresting Girl Person? Sooner or later, every clock goes to 10:01 a.m.  And sooner or later, she is going to have to realize that time may march on.  But we have to make the most of every minute.  Making the most of every minute though does not mean rushing or trying to get more done than you can.  Because guess what? No one can ever get everything done they want to.  News flash.  It doesn’t matter.

On Mondays especially, it may seem like the world is on your shoulders.  But only carry what you can.  And remember that good feeling you had after that mud, after that hike or after a good nap.  You deserve to be happy. No matter what the time is.
