Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. It’s been a hard few weeks, hasn’t it?

I can tell by the look on persons’ faces that things are stressful. There are many things to worry about. There are many, many people to worry about.

Sometimes it’s easy to hear numbers and news and have all of the bad run together. You hear how many are sick or have passed away lately due to the Virus Monster. And you hear the numbers. Maybe they sound like just numbers. It’s easy to let that happen. To not realize that each number, every single number is a person gone.

A person who was someone’s daughter. Son. Mother. Father. Grandparent. Dog parent. Each number is a ray of sunshine not shining anymore. Yes. Those numbers are real people. And not just people from one country. But our whole world.

It’s hard to grasp when we will be able to go back to seeing ones we love again. Just yesterday, we dropped off food at Gandma and Gamdpa’s house. And we waved.

We couldn’t stay. We could only wave from afar. Digby and I had a hard time understanding why. Because sometimes, we forget. And maybe, just maybe, that’s a good thing.

Everyone wants to forget. But we can’t right now. We have to follow directions. Something that Digby and I normally don’t like to do. But we are.

We don’t want you to dwell on sadness when you hear the numbers. But we do want to give recognition. Recognition that every life lost, no matter the cause, is someone who was loved. None of us know what tomorrow brings. In fact, we may not want to. Girl Person told us right now, it’s one day at a time. One life at a time fades away each day, no matter how many they total. Every life counts. No matter how many times it has happened.

Think about it this way. Even though we get many meals throughout our lifetime, do you notice when you miss one? You sure do. Now is the time to let everyone know you love them and value them. Say what you need to. Be kind.

And know we love you. Very much. We want your rays of sunshiney with us for a long time. Be safe.

What’s Your Ice Cream Flavor?

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. You know what? Sometimes, you have to just talk about something that has nothing to do with anything. Because the anything is depressing. And so today, let’s talk about ice cream. That’s what I picked for today’s blog. Because I like it. Because it’s good. Because it’s cold.

Because it’s a happy, happy thing in life to be licking an ice cream cone.

Since everyone is at home making all kinds of good things to eat, I thought we should each make what would be our perfect flavor of ice cream! You know, if you could make any kind of ice cream with your favorites, what would be in your ice cream? What would you call your special flavor?

It may come as a shock to you that my flavor of ice cream would be called Digby Pancake’s Tall Stack Of Pancakes With Extra Mapley Syrup And Bacon.

Yes. That may be a shock. But it’s true. I love the pancakes. I love the mapley syrup. I love the bacon. Combine all of those ingredients and, freeze and check it out. You have breakfast in your ice cream.

Or an ice cream breakfast. Yes. Its perfect.

Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle says since he was named after an ice cream anyway, his is a no brainer. His flavor would be ripples of carob (because dogs can’t have chocolate), buttery goodness and toffee all rolled into a frozen delight to match his frozen attitude.

He says its perfection in flavor. Quite delightful like himself.

So the question for today is…what is your ice cream flavor? What would you put in an ice cream only you could create?

Do you know that just like you can create the most delicious, perfect flavor of ice cream, you can create how each day tastes? Your day can burst with goodness!

There may be things going on that are out of our control. I can’t say that they are good things, like that Virus Monster. They are not. But if we only feed our minds with sour and distasteful news and information, the whole day will taste bad.

So consider how the ingredients in your day make up for the most perfect flavor of ice cream. Is it sweet like hope, or bitter like our attitudes?

It’s time to make some ice cream today.

Put away everything else for a little while and enjoy the sweet side of life.
