Instead of doing something fun like going on another walk or playing with toys or something, Mom asked us to sit on the front porch and look at the camera. This is what we gave her:
I'm doing neither. Zim is only sitting because he went on a much longer first walk of the day than I did and he was a bit tired.
That's a Purple Fountain Grass ( in the pot, if anyone is wondering. It's an annual here, or Mom would have ten thousand of them.
So then, Mom reminded us that it's the 237th birthday of the US Army!!! We decided to get a bit more cooperative, given the big day!
Mom said it was OK if I stood, since I was looking at the camera and smiling! We got a treat out of the deal. I'm sure the treat had nothing to do with us being a tad more focused on our mission at hand. Really. Happy birthday, US Army!!!
The soldiers in the poster above aren't smiling at the camera; I hope they got a treat anyway! (Mom said there's a good chance they'll get cake.)
It's also Flag Day here in the US, the anniversary of us adopting our flag back in 1777!!! Zim and I also posed by our flag:
Zim and I look like we're defending the colors, don't we!!??!! Nobody messes with our flag! Nobody!
Oh. Yeah. We aren't sitting or looking at Mom. In totally unrelated news, she had run out of treats by the time she took that photo.
Happy birthday to the US Army! And happy Flag Day! Fly those colors high!!!
