This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. Do you ever just stop and wonder sometimes…how did I get here? Deputy Digby does nothing BUT wonder. He always seems to have a lot of questions, forgets the questions and then forgets he wants answers. That is fine with me. Little less talk, a lot more action. For Digby, a lot more sleep. And always a lot more pancakes.
Well, let me be the first to welcome you to the place that made me wonder how I got here. Arizona! Yes, we finally made it out of that New Mexico place. The aliens tried to get us one more time…but alas, they decided that my handsome was too much for them.
When we finally got into Arizona, I stopped. I looked around. And it seemed like we were still in the desert. Because we were I guess. The first place we stopped was somewhere called a Petrified Forest, and that is enough to scare the pants off of you if you had pants on, which I do not. But Girl Person said it wasn’t petrified meaning scared, it was old wood that had turned into stone.
Well. I do know this. If you stay in the dern desert long enough, it will make you turn into a stone. Can anyone turn the heat down out here?
Sometimes you just have to wonder. How in the world did I get here? I mean, really? What led me up to this point in my life and did I enjoy the journey to get here? It may not be a place you envisioned being when you were young. Or maybe it wasn’t a place you thought you would be even yesterday.
But who is to know what tomorrow will bring? Wherever you have found yourself today, it was probably hard work to get there. It was probably full of memories, good and bad. But the journey made you who you are. And are you happy with that? If you aren’t it’s time to move on. Even if you are standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona.
For today, we DO find ourselves standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona. Now, I am serious. We are really on a corner. In Winslow, Arizona.
Well I’m a runnin’ down the road try’n to loosen my load
I’ve got seven women on my mind
Four that want to own me, two that want to stone me
One says she’s a friend of mine
That’s just rude.
Take it easy, take it easy
Don’t let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy
The Big Blue Treat Wagon RV sound will drive anyone crazy.
Lighten up while you still can
Don’t even try to understand
Just find a place to make your stand, and take it easy
That’s what I said! If you don’t like where you have landed, move on, but appreciate the journey that brought you to where you are right at this moment. Appreciating doesn’t mean you have to stay though. Is it time?
Well, I’m a standin’ on a corner in Winslow, Arizona
Such a fine sight to see
It’s a girl my Lord in a flat-bed Ford
Slowin’ down to take a look at me
Step back ladies. Girl Person saved me. Although I think she looks better in her drug store shoes.
And so today. We are leaving this corner in Winslow, Arizona. Our journey will take us this week to Sedona, Arizona where we will be visiting with the people who run a very special rescue, Golden Bone Rescue Rehab! We can’t wait to share their adoptables on our page. And then next week, we will be headed to the Grand Canyon. If Girl Person can get some shoes. So until then, whatever corner you are on today, stop and think. Do I want to be here? Did I enjoy the journey? Is it time to move on? Now is the time, because a journey has to start and end somewhere.
We may lose and we may win, though we will never be here again
So open up I’m climbin’ in, so take it easy

Sheriff, not only your handsome, but also your wisdom is what makes you a champ!!! Super crazy, I had a huge conversation with one of my besties yesterday about wanting to make the leap. It’s like you were telepathically in my head! Were you?? It might be residuals from New Mexico!!! 😛
Hmmmmmm…..and Girl Person, looking beautiful, as always!!! I love you all, have a safe trip today, and please, Sheriff, stop reading my mind!!!! 😉 xoxoxoxoxoxox <3
