Get Off My Lawn!

This is Peanut Butter Brickle. How often do you feel irritable? How often do you feel bothered…or judgy? I know it’s hard to believe. But I feel that way a lot.

Ever since I was a little pup, I’ve wondered why others have to be so loud. I’ve wondered what all the commotion is about everywhere and every day. Sometimes, and I mean all the time, I just need a little peace and quiet.

That’s why I was really excited when we came to this campground and we had our own deck and table and it was right on the creek.

Oh, the tranquility. I knew I was finally going to get some rest from noise and anything bothersome, which is most everything.

But my dream was not to be fulfilled completely. It wasn’t meant to be. Because others had the same idea. Especially little others who wanted to scream and yell and play and raise the noise level in this whole Georgia place to the highest levels of my nerves.

Day after day, they inched closer and closer to my deck. Sure. I knew technically that the creek wasn’t mine. But who is for details all the time? So as they inched closer, I growled louder, Digby howled louder, and no one paid any attention. Until Girl Person told them that it would be better that they didn’t come in our campsite. But all I wanted to say was get off my lawn!

So I said it loud and clear.

That’s when one of the noise makers asked Girl Person why…why to everything she said.

And I heard my inner dialogue urging my outer irritability to express what we all knew. My badder mood was coming. Have you ever felt like that? Like you just couldn’t handle the nonsense?

Sure. I know it’s not nice to be irritable. Sure. I know it’s better to be sweet and kind and go with the flow like Digby. Although I’m not like that naturally, I also know I have to try. There’s no excuse not to try. Even when the word why makes you want to jump in that creek.

It’s easier for me to yell get off my lawn then to explain why I’d appreciate it if they didn’t get so close. Are you that way? Do you have to consciously make an effort to be nice?

If so, you’re not alone. We all have stress and pressures, especially lately. And when we feel like things can’t get any worse, we often take it out on others. But put yourself in another’s place.

If I can try, you can. But until then…little noise maker persons? I’d greatly appreciate it if you get off my lawn. Please.

A Narrowboat

This is Digby Pancake. To say that we are a little wet in this Georgia place is like saying we are a little hungry. We are real wet. And I am always real hungry.

The last week has been nonstop rain and mud and more rain and more mud. Girl Person got sick, the miniature horses got loose, and it seems like the mountain of self pity in this Georgia place is pretty high for us.

They say if you can’t beat em, join em. Well, if you want to join us in the leaky Big Blue Treat Wagon RV, you are more than welcome to. But you can’t even share my window seat, because the odds are the slide-outs will have to be closed so that this RV doesn’t turn into a boat.

Although I’m pretty sure at this point, we might as well get on a boat. I heard there are some things called narrowboats in that England place. I know a lot about England. I’m an English Foxhound, after all!

Since we already live in a narrowboat of sorts in the leaking Big Blue Treat Wagon, I wondered where we could go if we had one of those narrowboats!

I think since the narrowboats go so slow, we could stop off at a lot of places to eat. And the persons could go to some pubs.

And we could simply park our boat on the water. We wouldn’t even have to find a parking space.

I can dream. Can you? Sometimes I like to imagine how life would be in someone else’s boat.

Sometimes I like to imagine what they are having for dinner. But that’s a different blog for a different day! I could go on and on.

Ways to travel are many. You can take a plane or a boat or an RV or even a narrowboat!

But ways to learn about other individuals are endless. The worst thing to do is to have a narrow mind.

If you’ve never heard of a narrowboat, imagine what else you don’t know, or who you don’t know.

The more we know about others and the way they live, the more we become more open minded.

The more we learn about others, the more appreciative we are of who they are. More appreciative of who we can be.
