Oh, What A Tangled Web We Weave

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle.  If a week could be longer than the one before it, I would think that this week was one for the record books. Actually, this past month has been a steady rush of work, play, family and fixing stuff.  A TV appearance, rescue work and hiking also kept us busy. And we got caught up in it all like a giant spider web.

When you’re so busy, sometimes, you don’t take the time to see that you are too busy.  It wasn’t until Memaw Macaw asked Girl Person yesterday how she did so much and wasn’t she exhausted? Girl Person told her that in fact she was exhausted, but had been too busy to notice.  So we decided to put everything down, including our tiredness, and take a little stroll to where Boy Person’s old house used to sit.


And that’s when we saw it.  A spider web that stretched all the way from the top of a telephone pole to the ground below.  And we stopped.  And we looked.


And we thought how easy it is to get caught up in every day and not see all of the things you are weaving yourself into that you may not get out of.

“Never hurry and never worry!”-Charlotte’s Web

In fact, as we stared up at that spider web, Girl Person thought some more.  It had been a very long time since she had seen a banana spider.  They used to be around when she was a kid.  Big and menacing looking, in fact, they are harmless here.  Yet, she never sees them anymore.  At all.  It seems many of the creatures that used to be around have disappeared due to everyone affecting the earth, affecting their lives, and rushing around…not caring.  If everyone stopped for a moment to think about this…would they care? I wonder.

“In good time he was to discover that he was mistaken about Charlotte. Underneath her rather bold and cruel exterior, she had a kind heart, and she was to prove loyal and true to the very end.”-Charlotte’s Web

Sure, some may think that being on TV would be the highlight of our week.  But how was that more important than looking up and seeing that spider web?  It wasn’t.


Take a look at the web you have weaved…just this week.  What is in it?  I really would like to know.  Is it full of positive things and happy thoughts, or did you fill it with worry and fret and stress?  We all have our own webs, and sometimes, we even run into them.  What sticks to us is important.

Not only can we run into our own webs, but what if someone else does? Whoever we come in contact with is affected by us.  It is true.  People…the animals…the earth.  Build your web strong.  Be an example.  Weave that web!

Like A Tall Drink Of Water

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle.  Here we are. In the desert.  Somewhere in Texas.


And we found an oasis of sorts.  No, not the springs here in Balmorhea.

But me.  Me.  I am an oasis.  And Texas?  You. Are. Welcome. You ordered a tall drink of water.  And I am exactly what you ordered.



When you are in the middle of the desert, and you see all the beautiful things there, you also see how hot it can be in Texas.  We thought we knew hot.  Oh, we did not know it very well.  You look around and wonder how all of the wildlife can survive and how harsh it can be on them.  But then you realize that they were meant to live here and they love it.  Doesn’t mean they don’t get thirsty though. And that is why I am here.  A sight for sore eyes?  It is part of what I do.

Now. You may not think of me as tall when you first look at me.  But let me tell ya.  I am as tall as I am long and I do not accentuate both at the same time.  Because you would pass out from the oasis that I am providing you and that would not serve a purpose.  Like a tall drink of water, I am what ya need.  And Texas?  You. Are. Welcome.

When I saunter by the campers here in Texas, I hear “look at that tall drink of water”. And I am happy that I could do a good job here in Texas of looking good.  But like any tall drink of water, it eventually runs dry.  And we have been here in this Texas place so long, that the people in New Mexico are getting thirsty too.  And so on we must go today.  Another road trip thru the desert is calling our name.

So are you going to come along?  We will get to our first New Mexico location today if all goes well.  And then we will be there until Friday when we head to the Santa Fe area.  Next week will be our rescue visit, and I hear they are thirsty too.  They need to put in their order now though.  There is only so much water to go around. Wait. Who am I fooling?  I am enough handsome for everyone.
