Like A Tall Drink Of Water

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle.  Here we are. In the desert.  Somewhere in Texas.

And we found an oasis of sorts.  No, not the springs here in Balmorhea.

But me.  Me.  I am an oasis.  And Texas?  You. Are. Welcome. You ordered a tall drink of water.  And I am exactly what you ordered.

When you are in the middle of the desert, and you see all the beautiful things there, you also see how hot it can be in Texas.  We thought we knew hot.  Oh, we did not know it very well.  You look around and wonder how all of the wildlife can survive and how harsh it can be on them.  But then you realize that they were meant to live here and they love it.  Doesn’t mean they don’t get thirsty though. And that is why I am here.  A sight for sore eyes?  It is part of what I do.

Now. You may not think of me as tall when you first look at me.  But let me tell ya.  I am as tall as I am long and I do not accentuate both at the same time.  Because you would pass out from the oasis that I am providing you and that would not serve a purpose.  Like a tall drink of water, I am what ya need.  And Texas?  You. Are. Welcome.

When I saunter by the campers here in Texas, I hear “look at that tall drink of water”. And I am happy that I could do a good job here in Texas of looking good.  But like any tall drink of water, it eventually runs dry.  And we have been here in this Texas place so long, that the people in New Mexico are getting thirsty too.  And so on we must go today.  Another road trip thru the desert is calling our name.

So are you going to come along?  We will get to our first New Mexico location today if all goes well.  And then we will be there until Friday when we head to the Santa Fe area.  Next week will be our rescue visit, and I hear they are thirsty too.  They need to put in their order now though.  There is only so much water to go around. Wait. Who am I fooling?  I am enough handsome for everyone.

Beep Beep!

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. Well, I hate to break it to you. But we are still in this Texas place. You heard me. This Texas place is bigger than Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle’s attitude. And that is big. But it is not bigger than the stack of pancakes I could eat right now.  Nothing is that big.

Yesterday, we had a few hiccups before we got on the road. The Big Blue Treat Wagon is apparently getting a bit tired of moving the last week. And so it refused to. Boy Person also refused to give up and talked it into cooperating. At least for now. So although we were a bit late, we were able to start on our way. Until we we got stopped by a traffic jam in this Texas place.  The traffic jam didn’t know we were late.  And it didn’t care.  Either did the Texas roadrunner that ran past us.  You heard me.  The roadrunner. Beep beep!

Now.  I have seen a lot of things in my day and in my years in fact.  But I have never, and I repeat, I have never seen a bird run past a line of cars on two legs.  Girl Person said that it could fly, but it chose to run which I find ridiculous.  If I could fly to a stack of pancakes instead of running, that would seem like the logical decision.  But Girl Person says that it was not running to a stack of pancakes, but to catch bugs to eat.  To each his own I suppose.  Just leaves more pancakes for me.  Beep Beep!

Now.  I think we can all learn a lesson from the roadrunner. First.  To say Beep Beep all day is fun.  And unless you are getting chased by a hungry coyote like me, it would be fab to be a roadrunner.

You could run past traffic all day and everything that you didn’t like, you could say Beep Beep and go right by it!  What would I choose to Beep Beep to if I was a roadrunner?  I would definitely say Beep Beep to getting arrested all the time by the Sheriff.  I would also say Beep Beep to being woke up from my naps of pancake dreams at odd hours of the day to eat dinner when I would just like to sleep while eating and eat while sleeping.  Is that too much to ask?

I would also say Beep Beep to the the animals in the shelters and rescues we have visited.  I would Beep Beep them all into forever homes faster than even the roadrunner.  What would YOU Beep Beep in your day?  I would like to know.  Because there are so many roadrunners here and if they can Beep Beep all day, then you can too!

You think people may look at you weird if you Beep Beep all day today past things you don’t like?  Well, they are probably looking at you weird anyway and that is the least of your problems.  Beep Beep past the line at the grocery store with the person that has 11 items instead of 10.  Beep Beep past the doctor who keeps you waiting for like 2 hours in that room when you have things to do like Beep Beep at more things.  Beep Beep past the IHop when there is a wait for a table.  No, actually, don’t Beep Beep past the IHop.  I am rethinking that.  You can wait a little.

So today Texas, we are going to Beep Beep past our tiredness, our Big Blue Treat Wagon problems and our travel weary selves.  We are going to kick back and relax at the desert springs of Balmorhea State Park today because tomorrow we are back on the road yet again.

 

I think though that a roadrunner may get us to New Mexico faster.

New Mexico place?  You need to Beep Beep your way closer to us.  This is getting ridiculous.
