Fake News?

This is Deputy Digby Pancake.  Well, it is Tuesday in this Florida place, and well, I suppose it must be Tuesday whatever place you are in too…although, well, Girl Person says that may not necessarily be true. I am already confused today and it doesn’t take much. Well, well.

Things haven’t been going as planned in this Florida place since we arrived for our “break”.  But, as the persons say, it is all part of this adventure.  They call it the Adventure Of A Lifetime.  Well, hopefully some of this stuff won’t happen in our lifetime again.  Like Sheriff Brickle getting hurt this week, my vet visits and scare a few weeks ago, and broken down Jeeps and Big Blue Treat Wagons.

As you know, we were supposed to leave tomorrow, Wednesday from this Florida place to start out on our journey to a Mississippi place.  If I told you that we were leaving tomorrow, well, that would be fake news.  Because folks, it probably ain’t happening, just like pancakes ain’t happening on this diet I’m on.

Ugh.  Fake news.  The persons keep talking about it, I get sick of hearing about it, and yet, I guess that we have been telling you fake news too.  We keep telling you that we are leaving and then we don’t.  We keep telling you that all is going to work out, and I hope that isn’t fake too.  Why aren’t we leaving tomorrow?  If I told you that the Jeep broke down again, would you believe me?  If I told you that we don’t think Sheriff Brickle is feeling well enough to leave yet, would you believe me?  That’s not fake.  You have to believe a Deputy. Would I lie to you?  Do you have pancakes?  Don’t lie to me.  I smell em’.

Boy Person says he has no time to fix the Jeep because our Big Blue Treat Wagon is leaking water and we can’t turn it on inside, the oven blew out, and the tires need changed.  Really, I see no reason that can’t all be taken care of by Super Boy Person, but alas, he is having someone else fix the car for once.  I have already offered up my services numerous times with maple syrup and pancake tires, but no one listened to me in the first place.  Oh well.

You know what we are gonna do today?  We are going to put on our sunshiney faces, our big girl pants on, except for Girl Person who doesn’t do that anymore since her shower episode, and we are going to get this stuff done.  We are going to fix it all, including Sheriff Brickle’s attitude.  That is fake news in case you were wondering. That is not possible.  If you ever hear of a report like that, dismiss it immediately.

So. What’s the plan? The mechanic person says he can have the Jeep fixed up in a few days, which hopefully will let us leave as soon as possible or when Sheriff Brickle is good and rested. We don’t know if the campground here will let us stay, so we have to see about that too. If we can’t stay here, we may just hook up the broken down Jeep and go and fix it somewhere else.  What can we do?  We gotta go with the flow!

We wish it was fake news too that we weren’t leaving.  Because we are so excited to go. Now.  For breakfast. I hear Gandma is coming to see us again, although we have already said goodbye to her two times!!  We can do this fans…please stick with us. It’s not fake news that we love ya.  That’s for sure.

Like A Horror Movie

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. Ok, first things first. I know you are wondering how I am, so I will let you know that I am still dealing with an on the job injury. Girl Person says that with age comes a few more aches and pains. I am attempting to arrest the injury, but in my past experience, I realize it may be a few more days until the sentence is handed down. I have been instructed to use my worker’s comp and rest up so that I am ready to continue our Adventure Of A Lifetime. Currently, our departure from this Florida place is set for Wednesday, but the persons have let me and the Deputy know that if we have to delay, we will, in order to make sure we are all feeling ok to continue. I will keep you up to date. Now. For the blog. Thank you for your patience. As Sheriff, business is first.

In our attempt to continue our rescue journey, we thought easing back into the camping lifestyle again would be a good idea for us all. It has been about five weeks that we have been on our break, and we have become a little, well, too clean perhaps. It was time to get dirty again and so on Saturday, we headed out in our Big Blue Treat Wagon to a campground near by.

Sometimes, you forget about things you want to forget about. Girl Person says it is like that with campground showers. Yes, our shower is finally fixed in the Big Blue Treat Wagon, but when you are in an RV, you can’t use as much water as you want to because that means you have to empty it out, which means you have to move your RV and it is a big pain in the butt. So the persons decided it would be easier to just go use the showers at camp. After all, there should be hot water and lots of it…and that was something to look forward to because this Florida place was having a cold snap.

As Girl Person got into the shower, the first thing she noticed was that she was in a horror movie. Yes, this was the first thing, there was no question. No nice movie would have a dirty diaper in the shower, or mud or a broken handle. This was not really a good thing in fact. So much so that she put her clothes back on, when in retrospect should have been done after the shower situation was surveyed. But as Sheriff, I am on worker’s comp and off duty so I could not intervene.

After gagging, she decided to try another shower, and it was not such a bad horror movie as there was no dirty diaper, but unfortunaately, you cannot have everything in life, and this shower had a lack of hot water. However, the choice was clear, this probably was the best choice in the situation. She wanted to scream as this was a horror movie, but decided just to be a big Girl Person with her big girl pants on, but she had none on, and so she got as clean as possible and waited for Boy Person to finish his shower. That did not take long either, because he had no hot water, although a lack of dirty diapers. He was the clear winner.

Now, when you camp for awhile, you learn to make adjustments. But you learn to try and find a solution as well. Girl Person decided to go see if all the other shower buildings in the campground were this much of a horror. She decided to try, because, well, what was there to lose? Well, she did not anticipate the long, dark walk to the shower in this Florida place swamp with many things in the woods. Although her imagination was running wild like a Girl Person with big girl pants not on, the anticipation of a good shower was all worth it.

You may be wondering.  Well, how was the shower?  Oh, let me tell ya.  This shower was hot and lovely and no dirty diapers and all was well in the world.  There were some more people in the showers in the next stalls, but Girl Person tuned them out and thanked her lucky Florida stars that she wasn’t freezing.  Then.  The lights went out.

When I say the lights went out, I mean…the lights went out y’all.  Everyone screamed, no one could see and no one offered to go find some lights.  Because no one had pants on probably.  Girl Person tried to lighten up the situation by saying that it was like a horror movie.  The naked person in the next stall said, well, she wasn’t getting out and finding lights and Girl Person said she would save the day.  She decided that since it was dark, no one could see she that had no pants on and ran for the lights which apparently were on a timer for environmental sake.  Not for horror movie sake. Not for Girl Person’s sake and or dignity.

Girl Person says welcome back to camping.  I say welcome back to living.  It’s this kinda stuff that makes me forget I have a hurt leg.  And when you are on mandatory rest, you need your entertainment.

Have a great day everyone.  I will be supervising and Deputy Digby is bringing me reports of what I don’t see, but if anyone has no pants on, I particularly don’t want to know as there is enough of that here. So don’t try and get away with anything.

The Wheels On The Bus Don’t Go Round And Round.

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle.  I have a shocker for you.  My looks?  Well, they can’t get me everywhere.  I know.  You probably had to have a seat, although I didn’t even tell you to.  The news is enough to warrant an arrest of myself for not warning you enough of shocking information in advance.  But I won’t arrest myself, because someone around here has to run the show.  And that’s me. That’s not a shocker at all.

We have spent all week getting ready to head out of this Florida place.  It seemed like the longer we sat in this spot in the woods, the more things went wrong.  But things going wrong are just part of the adventure I say.  And how do we know that the things happening are actually “wrong”?  Maybe it will all work out for the best.  But trying to get out of here has been a challenge.  Almost as challenging as Deputy Digby’s new diet.  And that my friends is a challenge.

Seems as though no one around here has the right tires for our Big Blue Treat Wagon. Boy Person spent days trying to find them, and well, we finally did.  But they can’t put them on until Tuesday.  And yet, we have to get out of the woods tomorrow.  So now…rest time is over.  Time to get out the woods tomorrow, head to a park in this Florida place still…if we can find a spot, then wait until Tuesday when tires can get put on this Big Blue Treat Wagon RV.  I can’t wait to get on the road again.  Literally.  Can we please get on the road again already?!

As Sheriff, it is part of my job to keep things moving. I have to keep everyone in line, but I can’t change tires on this gigantic bus.  Well, I can, but it seems as though it would be risking my handsome if grease got on me. So the only thing I can do is keep everyone focused for the trip ahead.  Progress may not be happening on our time schedule, but it is happening.  Safety is our utmost concern, and I hate to say it, but costing us a few extra days to be safe is worth it.  When we DO get on the road again, this is going to be the best time ever.  I feel it as much as I feel everyone staring at my handsome all the time.

Now.  This is our last night of rest, because somehow I feel this weekend is going to be eventful trying to find a camping spot.  But it is the start of this Adventure Of A Lifetime again. Are you ready?  Let’s go!

And I can’t wait to get on the road again
On the road again
Goin’ places that I’ve never been
Seein’ things that I may never see again
And I can’t wait to get on the road again
On the road again
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We’re the best of friends
Insisting that the world keep turning our way

This is Deputy Digby Pancake.  I have a question.  Do you love a good book?  Do you love reading a good book with a stack of pancakes?  I sure do.  But the book has to be AS GOOD as my stack of pancakes.  Our favorite book is called The Endless Path by Laurie Duperier and her dog Gunny. 

If you loved the book A Dog’s Purpose, you will love, love, love this book even more.  It changed our lives forever, and thru the month of February, if you order through this link, we will get $5 from every book to help fund our Adventure Of A Lifetime animal rescue mission.  So…get a stack of pancakes, some maple syrup, and a copy of The Endless Path today!

Order only at https://squareup.com/store/gunnys-rainbow-llc

I hope this [book] will inspire people. I like to think that this could be a start of the human race understanding the animal kingdom. I hope people will read this to their dogs and cats and horses so they know they have a voice. They can actually be heard. They can communicate their thoughts and feelings.

We are all of us alive and are all connected to the same consciousness. Life is life, souls are souls.

Wide Open Spaces

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle.  I have a question. Why is it so easy to say hello but so  hard to say goodbye?  Why is it so easy to think about home, but so hard to leave it?

 

We struck out on a trip that many thought we were crazy to do, and I guess we were…and crazy to finish it.  Here we are…at the safety of home.  Yet we are leaving again to finish our 14 remaining states and rescues.  And we thought twice about leaving.  Especially since we had to say goodbye to Gandma and Gandpa yesterday and Girl Person’s best friend person.

Wide open spaces seem to be calling us.  They seem to be calling our hearts and our help is needed for these rescues around the country…so we have to go.  But no one ever said it was easy.

There may be things about your home that you don’t particularly care for.  But what if you had to leave it forever?  Would you miss the signs with your home city’s name on it?  Would you miss the people you know?  Would you miss the familiarity?

IMG_3115.JPG

That is how we feel this week.  Adventure may be calling our names, but so are memories.  So are special people that care about us and wish the best for us.  We are no different than you.  So bear with us as we are a little melancholy.  Since I always look like this, you may not notice much of a difference.

IMG_3109.JPG

 

Home is a place many people try to leave. Home is a place many people try to go back to .  For us, we don’t know where we want to be yet after our adventure.  What we do know is that the people that call this Florida place home are people we love and that we will miss.  So packing up is such sweet sorrow.

IMG_3143.JPG

But we have to finish. We have to do this.  And we thank you for doing along with us.  Just a few more days and we are back on the road.  We can do this.  I think. Wide open spaces.  Here we come.

I Got To Keep On Movin’!

This is Deputy Digby Pancake.  Oh, what a glamorous life I lead.  Not really, but I seem to enjoy it.  I have gotten used to this traveling thing.  And when the persons started packing up the Big Blue Treat Wagon yesterday, well, I kinda got a little bit excited.  So excited that I decided to take another ride to get me motivated!

We know that our fans are ready to get on the road with us too, but we have had a good time in this Florida place the last few weeks. We feel kinda like my Granny Person felt.  She said that sometimes, you can see everything wrong with where you live and can’t wait to get away from it…like when you are on vacation.  But when you come back home, you wonder what you ever saw wrong with it in the first place because you missed it so bad.

We sure seemed to remember the good things here like the beach and the sunshiney.  And we will miss it when we pull out of here on the road.  BUT, we are real excited about the next few months left on our Adventure Of A Lifetime, because there are 14 more states and 14 more rescues that need us to visit!  And I feel like these are going to be the best weeks ever of this trip.  We have our groove on, we know what we are supposed to do, and we may never get this chance again.  So.  Although we are going to miss this Florida place, we got to keep on movin’!

Now for the housekeeping stuff.  We can’t find no dern tires to fit on this Big Blue Treat Wagon.  So we will keep you up to date.  Plan is to pull out of our camping spot here in the woods on Friday or Saturday morning.  Depends on which tire place Sheriff Brickle arrests first.

Have a great day everyone and keep on movin’!

While You See A Chance…Take It.

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. This Florida place is starting to pull on our heart strings again, because we know our time is running out here. When you know your time is limited, sometimes, you start to notice the little things, don’t you? Whether it’s a loved one that you are about to be separated from, a house, a place, or even your supply of peanut butter cookies, it makes you appreciate things that you may not have noticed before. Whatever it is that you will be missing, notice the little things. While you have a chance…while you see a chance…take it.

Yesterday, as we were on our hike, Girl Person remarked that the leaves were surely glistening extra shineily that morning in this Florida place. Shineily is a word. Look it up in our dictionary, because you won’t find it anywhere else probably.

IMG_3039.JPG

Then, as we continued on our hike, we all started thinking about all the little things we were going to miss at the end of this week when we leave. The palm trees, the pine trees, the green grass, the orange grove, the sunshiney and yes, more sunshiney.

Stand up in a clear blue morning
Until you see
What can be

IMG_3053.JPG

When you are in a place for a long time, you take for granted the good things about it because you see it every day.  That’s how it was for us in this Florida place.  We also miss  people and furkids that are no longer here and hope that we noticed the little things about them when they were here so that we never forget them.  And we won’t.

When some cold tomorrow finds you,
When some sad old dream reminds you
How the endless road unwinds you ?

So, for the next few days, we WILL be noticing…while we have a chance.  What can YOU notice in your life today? Even the gandparents are getting in on this.  They have to remember how handsome I am for when we leave.  Its a lot to take in.

IMG_2980.JPG

Try this for me. Pick up a leaf and see the beautiful ways that leaf adds to the world.  How did it get on the ground? What journey did it take?  Listen to the wind.  What is it carrying with it?  Memories of your childhood home or a relative long forgotten?  Memories of a furkid you had when you were a kid, or that special pie you crave sometimes when you think about your grandmother?  We all have something special to remember and notice today.  As Sheriff, that is my assignment to you.  And you know what will happen if you don’t do as you are told.  Appreciate that.

While you see a chance take it,
Find romance fake it
Because it’s all on you

IMG_2990.JPG

Some persons wait to appreciate life until it is too late.  Don’t do that.  We know that coming back to this Florida place on a break from our Adventure Of A Lifetime taught us many things.  Like how we missed it, how new memories can be made, and what we may bring back to it when we are finished exploring.  But for our remaining days here, we hope you will enjoy what we have to show you about the place we call home.  And wherever your home is, we hope you will take time this week to enjoy it too.  While you see a chance…take it.  We never know what tomorrow brings.  Except more handsome.

Stuff Will Make You Wonder Where That Bolt Even Went.

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. Why in life is there so much stuff? Stuff, stuff, stuff. Stuff that we go to the store and buy. Stuff that we live in. Stuff that we drive around in. And stuff that breaks…at least that is how it goes for us. And it seems like the more stuff you have, the more stuff you have that breaks and the more stuff that you have to take care of, pay for and worry about. I have no idea what worrying is.

Hello weekend. #2travelingdogs #hikingwithdogs #florida #campingwithdogs

A post shared by 2TravelingDogs (@2travelingdogs) on

The persons have tried to cut back on all the stuff in our life. But we have to have that car thing and of course a place to call home, the Big Blue Treat Wagon. This week, and weekend, both of these things decided that they wanted to remind us that we didn’t need to purchase more stuff in our life, because we didn’t want to get caught up in that again. This is enough to worry about for the persons.  After trying to fix them all week, we sure don’t want any more stuff except for pancakes. This diet is on my nerves.

Girl Person says it is a good and a bad thing that Boy Person knows how to fix stuff. Good thing is, he can fix stuff. Bad thing is, he never asks for any help. So he worked real hard this week, but it seemed like the harder he worked, the worse the stuff broke. As he was just about to finish fixing the car and the oil leak, he dropped a bolt. A bolt thing that was needed to put the car back together again. Well, when you park in a pile of rocks, finding a bolt is like finding a certain pancake in a pancake stack. It probably can’t be done. After hours of the persons on their stomachs in the rocks trying to find this bolt thing, they decided maybe they should get a metal detector. Genius idea. Why isn’t there a pancake detector by the way? Oh, there is. That’s me.

Well, I am gonna shorten a long boring story of people on their stomachs in a pile of dirt with Florida bugs, people going by honking their horns at person butts in the air in the pile of rocks and etc., etc. Now, I will add, the persons were supposed to have an appointment wth their friends at a certain time. And now Girl Person was getting upset. What would they do? I mentioned Boy Person can fix most stuff. But it isn’t always fixed right. He tied the car back together with a zip tie, they showered from being in the dirt in the rocks and off they went to dinner. Until they realized they had no gas in the car. Who was in this car last, they asked each other. Back and forth, back and forth, like looking in a pile of rocks.

Well, sometimes if you stop for gas, you have that chance that your car may not start again. Oh…other people don’t have that problem? Huh. Well yeah, they stopped for gas, already an hour late and the car said nope. The battery was now dead. If you have ever seen a Girl Person late for dinner after digging in a pile of rocks for a bolt, and using a metal detector with a dirty butt, you will know what I am talking about. She was not too happy. A nice man decided he would help them, and now, Boy Person was pushing the car down the road with Girl Person wondering where the nearest wine store was… and then, after a long, long time, the car started. They were off. They had their nice dinner and their friends helped them jump the car again. And they were tired. I was mad they didn’t bring me home a doggy bag.

Now. After a good night’s sleep after my midnight howl and scream, it was time for a new day.  Time to try and get the car battery fixed.  Oh.  I will mention that Boy Person apparently thought parking in a hole and a ditch was a good idea the night before and it took them an hour to push the car out to start it to go and try and find another battery.  Except. It wasn’t the battery.  How do I know this?  Boy Person had to walk miles and miles to find out he needed a new starter. That’s what happens when you have a car broke down and need parts.  You walk. I could have saved them all this trouble.  The car wouldn’t start.  Starter.  Duh.

I will make another long story short again and tell you that Boy Person was dirty after this day.  Boy Person was tired.  And Boy Person swore that we were gonna get out of this Florida place at the end of this week no matter what.  Seems like the longer we stay, the more things are breaking.  Might as well see what happens, I say.  Plus, they never found that bolt.  Makes you wonder where it went.  Should’ve just went with my original suggestion to fill the car with maple syrup. That’s good stuff.

The Midnight Scream.

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle.  And law enforcement must have backup to operate efficiently.  Even at all hours of the night, a Sheriff and Deputy must be on constant alert. We must be ready for danger.  And we must work as a team.

After being on the road for a few months on this Adventure Of A Lifetime, it became apparent that the persons did not want us to leave their sides.  Yes, I know you will think it is the other way around, but law enforcement does not show weakness.  So even though we are living in the Big Blue Treat Wagon, which in fact is not very big actually, we want to be with the persons at all times.  It is just the way it is.

Usually, Deputy Digby Pancake likes his own space at night.  There is not enough room in the person’s bed for all of us, so I sleep in the little space by the bed on my big bed and the Deputy sleeps about ten feet away from us in the kitchen/living room/whatever the only other room is called.  However, for the past week, he has decided that we are too far away from him.

I will say that a Sheriff needs his sleep, and the Deputy’s way of dealing with his loneliness is interrupting my beauty refreshment.  Now, just like clockwork, at midnight, the Deputy breaks into a howl of all howls. Which in turn makes the persons scream in terror.  Which in turn makes me jump up to arrest.  And then I realize every time that is just the Deputy trying to divert my attention away from my bed so he can steal it.  Who do I arrest first here?  If I arrest the Deputy, there is no one to be my backup when I sleep.  But actually, I am getting no sleep because he is causing terror anyway.  So Deputy Digby Pancake?  You.  Are.  Arrested.

Persons can drink that coffee thing in the morning to wake up.  What am I supposed to do after every night like this?  Hand me a cup of peanut butter cookies and let’s try that I suppose.  The persons take turns going out to sleep with the Deputy every time this happens on a table that folds into a bed. Boy Person says his neck feels like it is folded up too.

Girl Person says that while we are getting everything fixed up to get back on the road, we have got to remedy this midnight scream situation too.  Right now we are parked in the woods somewhere, but we are sure once we are at campgrounds again that campers won’t appreciate the interruption.

So for now, until we figure this out, I guess I have to arrest the Deputy for his midnight howl which makes for a midnight scream. Horror movies have nothing on this I tell you.

Have a good weekend everyone.  We will be trying to get some sleep.

A Pancake Mechanic And A Stalker Sheriff Looking For Work

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. I thought this Florida place break was supposed to be a break! But it seems like Boy Person is working more now than we were on the road. And that’s working very hard. I would think that the persons would ask me and Sheriff Brickle to help them. But they think they can get it all done by themselves!

Yesterday, all of the things we have that have wheels here seemed to break.  First, the Jeep decided that it would leak as much oil as syrup on a pancake.  Then, Boy Person saw that the Big Blue Treat Wagon tires were bad…worse than four burnt pancakes, and that my friends is bad.  I guess traveling to 34 states will do that to tires.

img_1976

My suggestion as a trained Pancake Mechanic was to replace those tires, but with pancakes.  You see, when they go bad, you can take them off, eat them, and then get four more new pancakes.  And you don’t even mind when you get a flat, because that is what pancakes are supposed to be anyway.  Why Boy Person had to call a million places to ask them about tires was beyond me.  Just go buy some flour and get to flipping!

Then, after he was done calling places to see how much money it would cost, he decided to take apart the Jeep and find out why oil was going everywhere.  Seems like we are wearing everything out on this trip.  So my suggestion was to replace the oil leaking with maple syrup, then I will get underneath and catch what drips.  Then, I can go check the RV tires which I am sure will be bad and change them too.  I went to school for many years to train as a Pancake Mechanic, but I have never been able to put my skills to good use.  Anyone need a good Pancake Mechanic? Send them my way.  I am sure you know what I charge.

Girl Person needed help yesterday too, but it was the Sheriff who was trying to assist her.  Girl Person was complaining about bills and reports and more reports and emails.  So the Sheriff decided that if he stared at her to remind her of the shortage of peanut butter cookies in this place since our diet started, that she would forget about her work.  Anyone in need of a stalker with a hankering for peanut butter cookies?  I am sure you know what he charges too, which includes an arrest report for free.

Feels like someone is watching me work. #2travelingdogs #stalker #sheriff #campingwithdogs

It feels like we have been back in this Florida place for awhile now because well, we have.  And we appreciate your patience.  I don’t know if we are gonna get out of here on time this week, but the good thing is, we are on no one’s schedule except our own, and the Sheirff’s.  So bear with us as we get everything in perfect order, including ourselves for the rest of our adventure.  We promise it will be worth the wait.  Oh, and if you need me or Brickle’s services, you know how to reach us.

Anne With An ‘E’ And Deviled Eggs

This is Deputy Digby Pancake.  What a great week so far! You can’t beat meeting a pretty rescue girl combined with a tray full of deviled eggs in the south and not be happy.  And let me say that when Girl Person is happy, we are all happy.  Actually, when Girl Person is happy, Sheriff Brickle is happy, which makes us all happy.  Nuff said.  Except there’s more.

IMG_2790.JPG

Have you ever met someone and right away you know you are meant to be friends forever? Me neither.  Except for pancakes and I knew we were besties.  Usually, when I meet someone, I don’t know we are friends until we greet each other in the usual ways.  But when I met Beasley Anne, a new rescue girl, and now our second cousin, I knew we would always love each other.

“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

I am a lover.  And so I dedicate this song to her.  I forgot she was my cousin for a minute.  What state are we in now? Is that legal?

And get enough of your love, baby. #2travelingdogs #drivingwithdigby #barrywhite

Anyway. Girl Person has been hanging out with family a lot on our visit. Trying to squeeze in all of our time into a few weeks has been hard.  Her family has also made it hard for her to squeeze into her shorts with all the food.  Ever heard of deviled eggs? If you are in the south, you probably have.  Well slap my butt and call me pancake.  They are good.

Our Gandma and our Aunt Person on the family farm decided that a good pawty would include dogs, pizza, deviled eggs, wine, more dogs and watching a movie called Anne of Green Gables, one of Girl Person’s favorites.  Can we visit this Florida place more often?

In all of the fun, we met our second cousin, Beasley Anne.  Beasley made sure to specify, that like Anne of Green Gables, her name is spelled with an ‘e’.  Well la de dah.  My name is spelled with a pancake.

“But if you call me Anne, please call me Anne with an ‘e’.”

Beasley Anne came from a city called Miami in this Florida place that doesn’t like pit bulls very much.  Their loss.  Our gain.  Because we have to say, she is one of the prettiest girls we have ever met.

“It wasn’t luck, it was providence. He knew we needed her.”― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Sheriff Brickle was a bit concerned because she is brindle colored too, and thought that their brindles would clash.  Oh no, it was like magic.  Kinda like butter melting on a pancake.  You gotta just look and look some more.

Girl Person says that it is not often you meet a “kindred spirit”.  I have no earthly idea what that means.  But what I do know is that when you find a friend, a true friend, you have to hold on tight.  No, I did not try to hump her in my usual Deputy way.  I’ll save that for later.  Again, is that legal in this state? But anyway.  We are going to miss Beasley Anne spelled with an ‘e’, because she is special.  She is beautiful.  And we wish we could fit her in our Big Blue Treat Wagon RV for our remaining tour.  But we know we will see her when we visit again…or move back.  Who knows?

There is a lot to be said, but not enough actually, for good food, family, wine, dogs and a good movie.  It is the little things in life that make it so special.  And it is going to be hard to leave next week.  My little pancake butt is going to sit right here with Girl Person now and watch one of her favorite movies, although there are no dogs in it. But she promised snacks. And that’s enough for me.  Because although we have a lot of work to do today, it can wait.  Do you have a favorite movie or food or miss your family today?  Make your heart happy.  Do something you love!

“It’s been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.”
