The other day, Mom took the boys and I on an extra afternoon walk to enjoy the weather. We had a wonderful time and she had the iPhone with her and took some pictures. Why don't I show you how it went?!
Here's a collage of us on our way out - and stopping to pose at the water tower:
Everything was pretty ho-hum until Mom took that picture of Zimmie in the bottom-left corner. He said, "Hey, Mom cut my nose off! Ha roo roo roo!!!" and we started giggling (well... maybe especially I started giggling...) and one thing led to another and we were fooling around and Zim asked,
"Hey, Ammy! Heard any good jokes lately?"
Actually, I just heard a bunch from Zim's friend Mango the cat. (They go way back!) (OH! Not to be confused with Mango the Relentlessly Huge.)
"I have heard a few..."
So on the way home, I regaled them with some new (to me) jokes. Like I asked them if they had heard about the dogs named Timex and Rolex? They were watchdogs. Hee hee hee! They were really active and kept doing zoomies and were running in circles. I guess they were winding themselves up!
Since our temps are over 70, it was pretty hot for us - until we get used to it. See... take Dave, for example. He has really thick fur and in the winter he wears his winter coat. In the summer, he wears his coat and pants! Hee hee hee!
"Hee hee hee!"
"I didn't really get that last one, Am..."
"It's a joke, Dave. Coat and pants? And you're panting?!?"
Davy got it once Zimmie explained it to him! Then I thought I'd try one he could relate to a little better. "Hey Davy! Have you heard the one about the dog who boasted about running two miles to retrieve a stick? I think his story is a little far-fetched! Hee hee hee!"
"Oh... ha woo! Now that's a good one!"
And then there's the young Army dog who was forced to stand at attention a really, really, really long time. It ... made the pup tense!
"Hee hee hee!"
"Ha woo, Ammy! Those are some good jokes!"
"Ha roo roo roo - pup tents!!"
Then Zimmie couldn't stop laughing...
"Ha roo roo roo, oh, Ammy, you're killin' me!"
...so I left him with this zinger - "Just remember, Zimmie! To err is human... to make dog puns canine!" Hee hee hee!
"Oh....... AMMY!" [groannnnnn......]
Happy April Fools Day, everyreader! And thank you to Mango the kitty-cat for the wonderful jokes!
