The Salad

This is Digby Pancake. If there is one thing I know, it’s food. Food is always love at first bite. Because it’s the only bite. I’m a pretty fast eater. Dogs are good at that.

For most of us lately, we may feel like we’ve been doing the same things. We may forget what day it is. And it’s not that there aren’t things to do. To be bored is to consider yourself boring. That’s what Sheriff Brickle always says.

He says there is always someone to arrest.

So Girl Person thought about it. She was bored. So she must be boring. But here we were at a farm.

Yes, the produce market was the same produce market everyday.

But what was inside changed. The possibilities were endless. Just like my appetite.

So Girl Person got on her real shoes which don’t flip or flop and walked to the market.

She really was wishing as much as she liked it, that she would like to be in Italy that day. Making some food and listening to some music.

As she walked around the produce, she saw oranges and tomatoes. She knew what she could make. A Sicilian salad. Yes. But what was that? She looked it up on her phone, and just like everything she does, she made her own version.

Now, I’m not one for salad unless it’s a pancake salad.

But I still had fun watching Girl Person mix up her day but mixing up ingredients. She sang Italian songs and drank Italian wine.

And she said although it took all her energy to not be down and make an effort, she was glad she did.

She said life is so uncertain right now that we only know what this minute brings while we are living it. So we need to live it.

We need to exercise our minds. Our creativity. And we need to value what ideas we have!

You see, only we can mix it up.

We may not get to be or to do exactly what we want to now. But in this time comes ways to make ourselves better. To find out and remember who we are. Live it up today. Mix it up! Where do you want to go? Make it happen even if it’s only make believe.

If a salad can change our day, imagine what other things are possible.

Buffalo Gals, Won’t You Come Out Tonight?

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. There’s never a dull moment when you are camped at a farm. Well. Sometimes there are a few dull moments here and there. I guess.

And during those dull moments, if they are interrupted by a really exciting one, you wake up out of a deep sleep. Unless you’re Girl Person and you sleep thru a herd of water buffalo traveling thru your campsite.

Yes. Yes. You heard me. A herd of water buffalo. You may remember earlier in the week when the bison escaped. He was arrested.

However, his cell mates, the water buffalos. decided that if he could take a walk, it was only fair that they did too.

So another jailbreak occurred.

In the middle of the night, the water buffalos decided they would also take a walk. A real long walk thru the farm and you heard me. In our campsite.

Now. As usual, I was on high alert. As usual, Digby was asleep. Our windows were open. And that’s when I smelled them. I smelled them real loud.

I tried to climb out the window, Deputy Diggy howled at the top of his lungs, and generally we sounded the alarms. All of the alarms we had.

As Girl Person slept thru everything, Boy Person looked out the window and all he saw was a shadow. A very large shadow.

Now, figuring that the bison had explored a few nights ago, Boy Person thought maybe he had escaped again.

But, right before bed, he had been watching and reading all the reports about aliens. About UFO’s. And he thought that perhaps, the shadow may just have something to do with that.

So Boy Person decided the best plan of action was no action. And that’s what he did. Until the next morning when Girl Person saw the tracks.

She exclaimed that something had paid us a visit. Boy Person said yep. Apparently that’s what we were barking at. And Girl Person had no idea what he was talking about. And she had no idea who had been in our campsite.

Then, all of a sudden, there they were. A whole lot of water buffalo running and running and farm people chasing and chasing.

Seemed a little like this had happened before. Because it had happened before.

I had a lot of arrests to make once they were captured and safely escorted home.

But I also had to find out why. Why. Why were so many large animals being apprehended?

I interviewed the accused. And I found out a bit of jealousy was going on here between the bison and the water buffalo. Apparently, a good looking lady is the cause of all this fighting. Bickering. Escaping. It’s drama, y’all. You see, jealousy can be a dangerous thing.

Even when you are a bison. Even when you are a buffalo. Strong feelings and jealousy can hurt you. You can hurt others. And no one may get what they wanted in the long run.

Sometimes you have to be the best you can be for you. If others decide they want to be with you, they will.

And if not, I bet spending time with yourself won’t be that bad. It wouldn’t be for me. I love my company.

Not all emotions are healthy ones. Sure, we all have our not so good days. But instead of trying to escape our emotions, replace them with love. Kindness. Contentment. And only then will you attract what’s meant to be.
