It Takes Two

This is Deputy Digby. No one has ever confused me with a rocket scientist.

No one has ever confused me with a scholar. That makes me want to holler.

But also,no one has ever said I don’t see the bright side of things. Even if my house disappears before my eyes. Or from my favorite campsite.

Yesterday, it was time to move two spaces over at camp. It wasn’t that we were mad about it. But it is tiring trying to move everything and keep me and Brickle cool and calm in this Florida place heat. Two spaces might as well have been two hundred miles. You have to do the same things anyway!

The persons were tired and it was hot. And they were getting irritable while Brickle and I just cooled off inside.

And during this time, I began to think about something. Was it particularly a big deal to move? Sure. It seemed kinda ridiculous. And maybe so. Maybe that’s why I stood in site 166 and looked for a house that wasn’t there anymore. Where was the door? Rocket scientist I am not. But insightful I am.

Everyone thinks of what inconveniences them. We have to move campsites. It’s a pain in the booty. But what about who booked our old campsite? What if they’ve been looking forward to it for a long time? What if the site means a lot to them too? What if they like the Scarlet Pimpernel pecking their mirrors all day? Maybe it’s the highlight of their year. It should be. Actually.

Life is hard sometimes. But never feel so important that you forget what others feel like. Put yourself in their paws. And don’t make everything about you. Even Brickle doesn’t do that on Tuesday’s.

It takes two people to move our Big Blue Treat Wagon RV two campsites down. It takes two dogs to put things into perspective. And it takes two seconds to stop making everything about you. Try it.

Take It On The Run

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. Not often do I think about where peanut butter comes from. Because it appears. It’s there. It’s yummy. It’s all it can be. Girl Person says in order to have peanut butter though, you have to have peanuts first. And that’s neat. I love peanuts too.

But as Girl Person was driving to get our weekly groceries yesterday, she started complaining. You see, she goes out once a week to get food. She cooks a lot for me and for Digby. And we need a lot of food. But she doesn’t like going. In fact, she says it’s becoming too hard. The heat, the traffic. The rushing around. The money. It’s a lot.

Girl Person says she feels like she is leaving an island when she leaves the campground. An oasis of sorts.

Because the real world? It doesn’t seem real. In fact, it seems as fake as it can be. And we all play the game.

We take it for granted that there is food for us to buy. We take it for granted that it was grown, or made or shipped far distances. We take, take, take. We go thru life fast. We consume fast.

Almost as fast as Digby. But not quite.

When did all this start? When did persons stop giving back anything and only taking anything and everything? And why do they have to do it so fast? Is there a way we can all slow down and think about what we are doing? Even if everyone is doing the same thing? That doesn’t make it right.

Not one of us can change the world. But we can change how we play a part in the world. Taking is not all it’s cracked up to be. Living in an RV, we have no room for most anything. And we notice how much we have. We notice how much we could reuse. And it’s our goal to do better. Even if we have to move somewhere where it’s not such a fight.

If you notice you are taking everything on the run, can you walk today? Maybe think about planting some herbs. Maybe think about making a bird feeder and helping out some birds. And that brings me to a special announcement. Boy Person will be teaching you how to make a bird feeder out of trash! You heard it first! Watch our Facebook page for details.

And remember. When you take everything, eventually there will be nothing left. It’s up to you.
