Denials And Detours

This is Fruitycake The Raccoon. If there’s one thing I’m used to, it’s told no. Don’t eat a whole jar of pickles. “No, Fruity.”

Don’t bark at the gang of huskies that walk by every day. “No, Fruity.”

Don’t chase turtles. “No, Fruity.”

But now, it’s the persons turn to be told no. “No, persons. Your paperwork is denied.”

“No, persons, you don’t have have a lot of time to figure this out.”

“No, persons. It’s not going to be easy to make it to that Italy place.”

It’s easy to get down when things don’t work out on your timetable. You may do your best to make something happen.

You may think you have everything figured out. And then you have a detour.

You can either choose to turn around and give up. Or you can follow the detour to get to the same place.

It may take a little longer. You may not plan on it. You may get lost. Those are your options. But do you give up? That’s up to you. That’s up to our persons.

When my persons have their minds set on something, it’s not easy to talk them out of it. But it is easy for this to get discouraged and depressed.

Yes. Their paperwork was denied. The paperwork we filed when we went to Miami. And now our time is short to figure it all out. The boat will leave with us or without us.

Do I have an answer as to what we are going to do? No. That’s another no.

But I do know that it’s going to be a lot of trying this week to find our way. Even if its another path.

So get ready. We have a lot of nos to overcome. I’m going to need extra pickles for this.
