George and I were lucky enough to get to spend the day with our good friends, Angie and Garry.
We (of course) took along the dogs who adore our friends as much as we do.
We shared a lunch of grilled hamburgers, home made potato salad, Jerusalem salad and baked beans. NO ONE cooks baked beans the way Angie does! I brought home a large container of them for later.
The highlight for me was cooking alongside my best friend, and just spending time with her and the dogs.
I think, for George, the best part was getting to eat whatever he wanted, watching a baseball game and rushing outside to see an antique plane flying over the house.
Turns out that a “tri-motor” is in Enid this weekend and giving out rides for the paltry sum of $75.00 per 15 minutes in the air!
No, I did NOT give George a blank check to go for a ride. I did however drive him to the airport so he could get up close and personal with a plane from 1929.
Finally back home again with two sleepy puppies and the happy hubster and found a dead squirrel in the middle of the living room floor.
Pyewacket has been hunting again.
Two nights ago our insane murderer of a cat brought in a baby horned owl…….George thought it was dead..I grabbed the cat by his scruff and held on for dear life. George ran for gloves but the owl popped up and flew……………all over the house! With the cat in hot pursuit!
I finally snagged the cat and held him while George chased that poor little bird……..finally the baby flew outside (yes, one of us found their brains and opened both the screen and front door, then turned off the lights…I’ll leave you to guess which one).
I totaled up the weeks kills and have decided I need to rent Pyewacket out to people in need of vermin removal. We have four less squirrels, three less moles, one less mouse, seven less birds, two less bats and one less snake so far.
I just hope that when Pye runs out of wild creatures he doesn’t decide to go for the pit bulls across the street. I’d feel sorry for the dogs when they lose a fight against my 5 pound cat!
