Buckled In and Ready to Roll

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim.  The other day, Mom needed to run an errand.  Being the ever-so-helpful guy that I am, I offered my services as a navigator and escort.  We can't have Mom running around town alone - right?

We got buckled in ...

Here's a good look at my seatbelt system, for those of you who were curious!

... and we were ready to roll.

We took care of what Mom needed to do, then wow!  What do you know?  We ended up driving by the Kansas Ocean!  Isn't that a coincidence  since I was navigating ?  I thought we should get out and stretch our legs, take in the sea breeze, enjoy the 15 degree (F) weather!

We walked right down to the shoreline - and I just couldn't believe it.

"Wowzers!"

The sea level should be up to the top of the rocks I'm standing on in the photo above; that's a pretty good illustration of how bad our drought is.

Some of the tributaries to the Kansas Ocean are frozen:

"Ooh!  Ice!"

The main body of water isn't frozen, though.  We're not sure why not, given what our temps have been like lately.  Must be because it's an ocean!  You can see it out there in this next picture:

Oh, I know.  You might wonder if I had stuck my snooter into all those dried  weeds  wildflowers and snoofed around, right?  And maybe you might think you can see some pieces of leaves and stuff stuck to my fur.  Come on!  How could you (or my mom who kept brushing my face off) accuse me of such behavior?!?  Look at the other side of my face.

See?  Clean as a whistle.  Nothing to see here.  Let's head up to the boardwalk.

"Sticking my snooter in the dried stuff!  Puh-lease!"

We had fun walking around for a while, enjoying all the sights, sounds, and smells.

"Anybody want to join me for a stroll along the boardwalk?"

It was a great way to cap off the afternoon!  I could have stayed there all day!

"Mmm!  One last whiff of those Kansas Ocean breezes, Mom!"

I love helping to run errands!  Especially when I get to navigate! 

Play bows,
Zim

  1. I'm going to say that you have better restraint that I. I would have stuck my whole face int he dried vegetation, followed by my whole body. I bet the Kansas Ocean does not freeze because it is salt water. I would love to talk a walk on the boardwalk. i would not be "bored" at all. It would be exciting. They should call it an excitewalk not boardwalk.

  2. I can't believe it is that cold and the ocean didn't freeze! Even with the cold it sure looked like a nice day for a walk. BTW Zim you look very handsome sitting in front of your sporty ride.

  8. You are the bestest navigator ever Zimmie! It was nice of you to take your mom to the Kansas Ocean and enjoy the sea breeze! We can't get over how brown it is there since it's so green here but our skies are gray and foggy and not blue. That we don't like. At all.

  9. Zimmie , woo are an awesome GPS.. as in Global Positionng Sibe. Ha-roo roo roo!

    wonderful walk with your mom, we have not been able to convince ours that we need to go on a walking adventuresince our temps have slid into the 20's and below range. Oh well, at least we have a nice big backyard, we can smell the Bay from here, and the gulls fly overhead to tell us how things are going on our ocean.

    BTW, that is one sweet ride & safety system, Zim!

    a-roos to yous,
    jack & moo
