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.

    Ah! Mystery resolved. Make sure that when Grandmother visits, no pancakes fall off the table. If someone stops getting pancakes from Grandmother, perhaps the chain of breakages will come to an end?

  3. I sure hope that everything comes together for y’all so you can get to the Mississippi place. Sorry that the Jeep and Big Blue Treat Wagon need fixed. I hope that during that time that Sheriff Brickle gets that needed rest.
