Thankful For Unexpected Sunshiney

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. Do you wake up each day and look out the window to see what the weather is like outside? Deputy Digby Pancake does. It is the first thing on his agenda.

If it’s raining, he goes back to sleep. If it’s sunshiney, he tries to get up a little faster. After he stretches. Yawns. Stretches some more. Changes positions. And gets one paw out of bed slowly and not so surely.

For me, I want to go outside in the morning no matter what is happening out there. After I look at myself in the mirror.

I don’t pay attention to the weather forecast. But persons sure seem to. And they also think they know it all, can predict it all and keep one step ahead of the weather game.

The funny thing is, no matter how many times that they get the weather wrong, they still trust in their abilities anyways. It’s like trusting that the Deputy won’t steal that plate of pancakes off the counter. You know what’s gonna happen.

Yesterday, the persons had planned for the worst. Weather reports indicated we were going to get hit with a terrible storm. All night. All day and night again. They pushed the slideouts in. They covered the bikes. They put away our outside beds and chair. You would have thought a hurricane was surely on the way in this Florida place.

Even though it rained a little, when we woke up, they were more than surprised to see the sunshiney trying to come out. The sky was blue. And even though there were a few clouds, we were able to take our walk and sit outside and smell the breeze instead of being inside the Big Blue Treat Wagon all day. Yes. It was surely something to be thankful for. Unexpected sunshiney.

But as the day went on at the farm, I began to wonder. When would the rain come? How long did I have to be outside? My memory had surely been short.

Just like persons do, I had forgot that I should be thankful for the unexpected sunshiney we did have. In fact, I was already depressed about the fact that the rain would eventually come.

Are you like that in your life? Does something good happen to you and instead of being thankful, you worry about when it will end?

Not being thankful can make us selfish, in fact. Never forget to count your blessings. Especially unexpected sunshiney.

It will last longer in our hearts if we are truly thankful.

You Put What On Your Pizza?

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. Some things go together. Like peanut butter and cookies.

Like pancakes and maple syrup.

Like Peanut Butter Brickle and Digby Pancake.

But some things are not meant to be together. And don’t mess with Girl Person’s pizza.

One of Girl Person’s favorite things to do is cook. And especially on Sundays when she can make something a little more special. And this past Sunday, she was excited to make a recipe called Scachatta. It’s a special kind of pizza, she told us.

It combines flavors of Cuban cuisine and Italian cuisine that goes way back in history near the Tampa, Florida place. And she said yep. For this pizza, it definitely goes together.

But the problem was is that she didn’t have any of the ingredients to make this pizza. In fact, she said it was a spur of the moment craving. Kind of like when I decide I want pancakes. All day every day.

So as Boy Person often does, he saves the day. And he said he would go get tbe ingredients. Also tortilla chips. And you don’t run out of those in this RV.

So off he went to save the day. Fighting traffic. Horns. The real world. And he had a list. San Marzano tomatoes. All purpose flour. And newsflash. The persons are vegan. Which Brickle and I are not. So instead of meat, she told Boy Person to get spicy tofu. Don’t judge. To each their own.

Girl Person was very appreciative of the grocery run. And as she was unpacking all the goodies and getting ready to make her pizza, she asked Boy Person where the spicy tofu was. And he said, in the bag. And she said, where? I only see curry tofu. Which. Never mind. And he said, that’s it. And she said no. No. You don’t put curry on pizza. He said, it’s spicy, why not? An argument ensued over which cuisines use which spices.

And I have to tell you, this was the most boring argument I have ever listened to.Boy Person stood by his opinion. And he also didn’t want to go back to the store. Girl Person stood her opinion and started her sauce on the stove. But as she stirred her San Marazano tomatoes, she wondered something.

What would be the worst that could happen if she just used the curry tofu? Sure. It might taste horrible. But maybe the point of loving someone is compromising. Even if you are sure you are right.

So she decided right then to tell Boy Person he could have his curry pizza. And maybe. Just maybe…it would be the best pizza ever.

Later that night, as they prepared for the battle of pizza flavors, it was the moment of truth. Tofu. Curry. Pizza. The world tour of pizzas.

And the truth was, well, it was pretty good. A bit spicy in all the right places. A bit sweet too. And as they chowed down, it was agreed that this just might be a new thing. Curry pizza.

You see, we may know we are right. But are we? If someone’s opinion differs from our own, and it won’t hurt us, what’s the harm in compromising? Sometimes it may not be the outcome we expected.

We can all make the world a better place by trying to understand each other better.

But I’ll take pepperoni. Thanks.
