Our walk started out like most of our early morning walks ...
|Cam and me - heading out!|
... only we were walking Mom this morning, not Dad. We're under a severe heat warning, so we made sure to get Mom out early and for a nice, long walk!
At about the half-way point, someone's lawn sprinklers were on. They were getting the sidewalk all wet and Mom let us walk right through them. As Siberians, we are normally averse to water but hey, it was sprinklers! Sprinklers are fun! Besides, Mom got wet, too. (Someone might have dilly-dallied a bit to make sure Mom was still in the line of fire when the sprinkler veered back toward the sidewalk ...) Anyway, those people live where the sidewalk ends and next to a vacant lot.
|"Look, Zimmie! Mud!"|
Yep. Wonderful, cooling, messy mud! But did Mom let us walk through it? Ha. I think we all know the answer to that one. What a kill-joy!
But anyway, we headed up the big hill on the new road (the one Cam showed you here) and that's when I saw the deer!!!
|"Cam-a-roo! Mom! Look - a deer!!!"|
Cammie was at my side in a flash!
"Ha roo roo roo! That one never gets old!"
Yeah, OK, so it was a Deere, not a deer - but it was STILL exciting!
|"What do we do with this thing, Zim?"|
"Why don't you get in the bucket and I'll fire it up!?!"
I assured Cammie I have tons of experience with these things.
|"OK, Zim - if you're sure!"|
"No problem. Let me do a little safety inspection first."
It was safe enough, but alas, I couldn't find the keys. Mom said it was time to head on back to the house and get some water anyway. It sure was a fun thing to see this morning!
I hope all of you have a great day -- stay cool, friends!
