Doesn’t everyone like an umbrella hat?

Why just sit around the house when you can sit around outside under a parasol?

Trudith isn’t just an old fuddy duddy who sits around her house in the sitting room all day long.  She and her cat enjoy a good outing at the park.

P.S.  I totally had one of those umbrella hats that I recall buying on vacation in Florida….and it was awesome.  Well, awesome when I wore it outside for 3 hours straight when I first bought it in Florida and the few minutes I wore it in the house later when I found it while cleaning my room.

Imagine never brushing your dog ever again…that’s this dog.

This is seriously one scrappy dog.

My one best friend Emily (you may remember her baby almost eaten by a chihuahua) has a brother who has a dog.  When I went over to say hi to her parents, John and his dog Teagan were there.  Now I’m obviously not a dog person but they can be ok sometimes.  However, I don’t really like when they’re up in my business.

When Teagan came to say hi I’ll admit I had an eh-get-away-from-me-moment because she was all up in my business and looked so scruffy.  When I declared this, John shared that he got her because he wanted a scrappy looking dog.  I think he won.

Anyway, this is the true story of a guy coming up to John asking him about the scrappiest dog he’d ever seen.  I don’t know if the other guy had a mustache or not but I like to imagine him like that.

It was just us, a bee, and a lady sunbathing below us.

This was on all the newstands...and yes, I realize this really does make me look like a crazy cat lady, regardless of anything else on this website.

This weekend 2 years ago, Adam and I got engaged.  He surprised me with a visit to Cleveland when I was in town and we walked to my favorite park, which, if you recall is the same one I loved to bury fish in.  It was all sweet and lovely and everything, but it was nearly spoiled when a certain someone, and I’m not gonna name names here, freaked out upon encountering a bee.  And it wasn’t me.

But anyway, we got married and junk and so I did say yes when he asked me, if you were wondering.

 

Hamsters love to travel.

Yes, this really happened...

When I was in middle school, I had a friend who was pretty awesome.  She was smart, had a hamster, was creative, liked fairies like I did, and was strange enough to be my friend.  We were like two peas in a pod during that short time when we were friends.

Once we even set up a hamster play date at the park by her house.  I got my little hammy Daisy all ready to go in his/her (read the previous link and you’ll understand…) carrying case, hooked that over my handle bars, and off I went the mile or so to my friend’s house.

I feel it pretty unnecessary to mention, yet I will, that my bike was lacking in the shock absorbing department so as I carefully navigated over bumps and cracks, my poor hamster may have suffered a concussion.

Regardless, the playdate was a smashing success and I think our hamsters had a great time.

I also feel it pretty unnecessary to mention, yet I will, that this was not the only time I took Daisy for a trip anywhere and I can recall at least 1 or 2 more times where we went to my favorite park.  Daisy was not made to bury any fish when we were there, though.
