Don't Believe Everything You Hear

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. I'm here with my little brother, just hanging out, being very good puppies while our mom does a couple things.

"Us?  No, we were here the whole time."
"Dang, that was fun, Mags!"

If you hear anything about a "wilding spree" while she was in the shower, don't believe it. 

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

PS:  One of us needs to work on his poker face.

New Project

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. I'm here in the Studio helping my mom start a new project.

"The fabs have penguins and pines and narwhals and polar bears and snow and ... it needs something ..."

"Shouldn't there be Siberian Huskies or at least wolfies in there, Mom?!?"

I mean I AM there to help and advise, aren't I?!?  Seems like a good idea to me.

Sköl!

Front Garden Pix

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Mags did a great job showing you some of the blooms in the front garden last week, so I thought I'd post an update! Ready to take a look around? Let's go!

"This smells nice!"
"It's a Peony, Ragnar!"

At first, I thought it was called a "Pee-On-Me", but Mom straightened me out on that.  Who knew?

"What's this one, Mom?"
"Another kind of Peony!"

We have several different kinds, apparently!  Maggie showed you yet another variety; you can see it at this link.

The transplanted Iris are doing really well! Here they are:

"They're the purple things over -- wait!  The neighbors are out!"
"Ragnar?!?"

After that, Mom decided we should go take a look at some of our potted flowers.  I like these Petunias best:

"Mmmm!  Smells nice!"

That's it for this garden tour - I hope you enjoyed taking a look around.  Remember to stop and smell the roses!  ... and if you don't have roses, Peonies and Petunias will do fine!

Sköl!

Serene Scenery Sunday

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. We had a GREAT walk this morning! For starters, it was 42℉ when we headed out -- perfect walking weather! Then, Mom and Dad kept coming up with all these new-to-us roads to go down! It was so exciting! We ended up going about 6.85 miles and enjoyed every bit of it! When we were about at the halfway point ...

"Look!  It's the K-State football stadium!  I didn't know we were going to come out here!"
"Me, neither, Mags!"

Mom and Dad allegedly knew -- my money was on Dad knowing, but maybe not Mom. She's a bit ... directionally challenged.  Anyway, the skies were gorgeous, so ...

IMG_8349MagsRagnarKSUStadium
"Hey, Mom!  Look at that sky!  You should get us posing with that as the backdrop!"
"Yeah.  Let's sit and smile, Mags!"

I was thinking maybe more of our Serious Look, so Raggi and I went with that.

IMG_8355MagsRagnarCollegeAve
"Where did those smiles go?"
"We're going with the Serious Look, Mom."
"Yeah, Mom.  Don't we look cool?!?"

What a beautiful day!  We hope you're having a great one as well!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

Armed Forces Day - and Birthday Treats!

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags! Before Ragnar tells you all about some of his birthday treats from yesterday, I wanted to thank all those who served or who are serving in our military and wish them a very happy Armed Forces Day!!! OK ... over to Raggi:

Thanks, Mags -- and hi everybody!  It's me, Ragnar.  I had a great birthday yesterday, full of wonderful surprises! After our walk, Mom had me and Mags pose for a treat on the stairs:

"How's this, Mom?  Sort of my casual, relaxed look!"
"Say ... is this when I get to give Ragnar his present?!?"

IMG_8297RagnarMags
"Umm .... I'm just going to slip on down the stairs ..."
"Don't let him leave, Mom!"

I thought she was going to BOOM! me right then and there!  I was wrong, though.  She had something incredible for me!!!

IMG_8308RagnarMagsApple
"An APPLE?!?!?"
"I know how much you love them, Raggi!  Happy birthday, little brother!"

We each got to have a slice.  It was SO GOOD!  Mags really surprised me with that!  We celebrated with some snooter jousting and zoomies.

After a bit, Mom said she had a special birthday treat for me.

IMG_8336RagnarMagsBirthdayTreats
"Oh, great Balto!  Special COOKIES?!?!?"
"And he can share, right, Mom?"
"If he wants to, Mags."

IMG_8304RagnarMagsBirthdayCookies
"Carob with peanut butter filling?!?"
"You ARE going to share, right, Raggi?!?"

Of COURSE I shared with Mags -- we like to share everything!  Those cookies are aMAZing!  I'm hoping we can each have another one this afternoon!

Thanks for all the happy wishes on the day -- and happy Armed Forces to members of our military, past and present!!!

Sköl!

It's My Birthday!

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar! Guess what?!?! I am SIX today!!!

Polargold's Einherjar, Ragnar

So far for my birthday, Mom and Dad have sung the Birthday Song to me, Mags and I did zoomies, I had some cookies, AND we had a wonderful cold front move through! That meant a SUPER nice walk this morning -- which is exactly what this six year old wanted!!!

... although I heard through the grapevine that Mom bought some special cookies for later AND there's an apple in the fridge with my name on it. I certainly won't say "no" to either of those!

So far, being 6 is super fun!!!

Sköl!
Ragnar
