If You Really Love Me, Won’t You Tell Me?

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. I am feeling wacky today! Probably because we are headed to somewhere called Waco in that Texas place. Wacky in Waco. Someone has probably used that job before. Well, good for them, I am the first pancake loving dog to use it. The joke is on them just like maple syrup is on my breath. Plus, Sheriff Brickle just told me my joke is bad. He had to get in one more arrest before we left Oklahoma today.

It is a strange feeling the day that we leave each state on the Adventure Of A Lifetime. Girl Person tends to overthink and I guess that is why her and Sheriff Brickle are so alike. On the day we leave, she has to say goodbye to everything she loved in the state and tell the state that in case we don’t ever see it again, we love it.

Life is short. For people and dogs. We never really know if we will see something or someone again. I feel that way every time I drive by a pancake restaurant or have a stack of pancakes, or smell pancakes. Or think about pancakes. I can’t bear to think I will never gaze upon them again, so I have to tell them how much I love them. Do you do that with things or people you love in your life too?

For this Oklahoma place, we are saying our goodbyes. Goodbye to the fresh air which tended to almost blow us away, but made us laugh at the same time. We say goodbye to the wonderful smelling wood we burned on the campfire. We thank the trees where that wood came from. And we thank the campground in Sulphur for giving us a peaceful place to just be. Just “being” is sure underrated. We also thank Oklahoma for their beautiful springs and introducing us to the Native American ways and food. And we also have to thank the animal rescuers we visited at Paws N Ada in Ada, Oklahoma. We had a wonderful week. (Catch the full video HERE)

We hope those that live in this Oklahoma place thank it every day. You have much to be proud except there could be more pancake places in my opinion. But that would go for every state so far. At least you have fry bread.  Ok, Oklahoma.  Fry bread is really pancakes in disguise for me.  I love you.  I’m telling you.  I really love you.

 

We don’t know if we will ever be back in this Oklahoma place. We don’t know if our travels will ever lead us here again. So in case this is the last time we see you Oklahoma, we thank you and tell you that we love you. Thank you for being here. I do not thank you for that man driving around in a surrey though that sings everything. If he decides to leave, call me. Sheriff Brickle does not like him either. They both think everyone is in love with them.  They pretty much don’t need anyone to tell them so.

 

We have a very long drive today. Very long. Texas is as big of a state as Brickle’s attitude, and we are splitting our time up in between Waco and Texas Hill Country and the wine region. The persons have also informed me that we will be taking a few days off to get us back on schedule and recoup a bit. So here we come, Texas! We have a visit planned with the Humane Society Of Central Texas and we can’t wait to meet them and their adoptables like Gingerbread here. share3.jpg

So here we go to Texas! I hear that the stars at night are big and bright.

I have a hat. I have some boots. And I am ready to go. Let’s do this!

You are saying baby
It’s time to go
First the feeling’s alright
Then it’s gone from sight
So I’m taking out this time to say
Oh if you really love me won’t you tell me
Oh if you really love me won’t you tell me
And if you really love me won’t you tell me

We love you, Oklahoma.

Everyone Is From Somewhere

This is Deputy Digby Pancake.  You may notice that we are still in this Oklahoma place.  Seems as though the bad weather a few weeks ago threw us off of our schedule when we were trying to leave that Louisiana place. But since we are in Oklahoma until Wednesday, we thought we would celebrate it before going to that Texas place.  Are you still with us?  Good.  Good.  I hear when you are in Oklahoma, you have to sing this song pretty much every day.

I had no idea what a surrey was, but Girl Person told me that it is kinda like what our Big Blue Treat Wagon RV is.  Like a car or a carriage or something. Well, unless the “fringe on top” is a pancake, this guy singing is not getting in.  Is he somewhere in Oklahoma?  I locked the doors, just in case he tries to take me in his surrey.  He frightens me because he sings everything.  Is that what you have to do in Oklahoma too? Please don’t tell Girl Person that.  If she starts singing, we may get kicked out of here before Wednesday.

I was thinking that it seems no matter what state we go to, or even town that we go to, someone is from there! We are so surprised at how much our fans love where they grew up.  They seems to remember the good things about their home, and we have been fortunate to jog some memories for people.  It’s the only jogging I will ever do in fact.  Especially since Girl Person made us some Oklahoma Baked “Fry Bread” For Dogs yesterday.  If you missed her cooking, you can still catch it here.  You will want to eat this whether you are in Oklahoma or anywhere. And you can also find the recipe here because Girl Person pretty much messed up filming.  The cold weather made her go cuckoo and she was looking out for that singing man in the bushes with a surrey.

Well, we have been on the road since May.  And although we are missing home, it warms our hearts to hear our fans excited about the places we visit when they say they grew up there, or that they were born there.  It somehow makes us feel a little less homesick knowing we can make others happy.  When we visited Ada, Oklahoma last week, we found out that some country singer was from there, even though it was a really small town.  We wonder if he misses his home too in Oklahoma. Is this the same man with the fringe on top?

Everyone is from somewhere.  No matter where we are, we try to remember that this “somewhere” is special to someone, including where we are now in Sulpur, Oklahoma.

We have been given the chance to not only see this country first hand, but to see it with love from your eyes.  Thank you for helping us see the “home” in every where we go.  We hope that you will remember your home with fondness or find that your new home is great because there is no man there with a surrey or fringe on top. Look out for him though, you never know how far that surrey could take him.

Thanks again to the people and animals at PAWS N Ada in Ada, Oklahoma.  The latest episode of Stop Hounding Me has them making ugly faces and acting out in silent movies.  Here it is in case you missed it!

So, here we are, ready to spend our two remaining days in this Oklahoma place, somewhere that is home to someone.  Wherever you may be today, help someone feel good about their home, and remember the good in yours.

I have some good news below too, because it’s Monday!
