Mr. And Mrs. Potato Head

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. Have you ever felt something so much…so intense…that it overwhelms you? Like when you see my beauty?

Well, imagine that feeling made even more intense with the heat. Yeah. It’s cooking up the emotions.

When it’s so hot outside, sometimes you lose your mind…if you are Girl Person. She gets a bit irritable. A bit overwhelmed. It’s like whatever feeling she has gets cooked up and served up with a heaping side of hot, mashed potatoes.

It’s hot in this Florida place quite often. But this takes the cake and bakes it right up. It seems to serve up the feelings with a piece of cake too.

We can’t walk very far or very long. We are worried about our air conditioning quitting. We like to be outside, but can’t be for long. And everyone is mad about it. Except Digby. Of course.

Yesterday, Girl Person took us for a short walk. Then remembered she asked Boy Person to vacuum. Boy Person forgot.

And Girl Person forgot her mind was all heated up. She got mad. Boy Person had no sleep from being hot all night. And they turned into Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head with no sour cream. No butter. Just hot potatoes were there in this RV.

Yes. They pulled it together. They realized that the heat was in fact making whatever they felt more intense. And I suppose that is how some days go. Something makes you upset. Something makes you more upset. And you take it out on strangers, or even someone you love. The biggest part of you shouldn’t be what’s wrong, though. It should be what’s right.

A potato can be many things.

French fries, mashed, scalloped or sweet! They can be a main dish or a side dish. They can even be a cold potato salad. That sure sounds good.

But remember that nothing happening to you gives you the right to be anything but nice to others…who may not even know how hot you are. Step back. Step inside if you have to, and cool off. Be refreshing. Not depressing.

And make me some potato salad while you’re at it, but make sure you vacuum first.

Hot Fun In The Summertime In November

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle.  I am not immune to the fact that we have went from temperatures as low as 30 degrees Fahrenheit this week to 87 degrees Fahrenheit here in this Florida place.

Deputy Digby Pancake says that it is hot enough to melt his butter.  Well, it melted Girl Person’s butter for sure, even though she is something called vegan.  You see, she kind of gets a little crankier in the heat.  I get a little slower.  Deputy Digby smiles more.  And Boy Person? He leaves off his socks when wearing flip flops.

But if you know me, you know that I always try to see the bright side of things after I take care of arresting the not so bright.  And even though this Florida place didn’t get the memo that is is November, I decided to embrace it and take advantage of the excuse to lay around while the persons are getting ready to go to Italy on Saturday.

Seems to me that people complain about the weather when they feel that they need to complain about something.  If it’s hot, it’s too hot. If it’s cold, it’s too cold.  If it’s hot you wish for the cold.  If it’s cold you wish for the hot.  And this is alot of time wasted when you could simply do your best to enjoy the moment.

Boy Person asked Digby today why he has to stick his nose in everything to smell it.  He asked him why, if he is a foxhound, can’t he smell whatever it is enough in the air.  And I know the answer to that.  Deputy Digby embraces the moment and he has no restraint in that moment.  He takes that moment and enjoys it to the fullest.  And I wish that I could be more like that.  But we need individuals like Digby to remind us.  We need individuals like Digby to show us the good things in life by making the most out of them.

And so, Florida place?  I know that it is hot.  But I know that I have missed you.  So whatever you are, and whatever the temperature is here, I am going to try and love you.  We are going to be missing the persons when they leave on Saturday for Italy. Oh, the clock is counting down.

As Digby and I head to our Aunt’s house on Friday and the RV goes to its vacation spot, I can guarantee that it’s not the heat that we are going to be remembering about these last few days together.

Summertime or winter time, make the most of your time.  And when the ones you love are in your day, you will be warm in your heart no matter the temperature.  But if you are in that Florida place, bring your bathing suit in November.
