Have Fun Along The Way

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim.  Now that our roads are more or less clear, Mom and I went for a little drive yesterday.

"This is great, Mom!"

We just headed out - and eventually ended up at the Kansas Ocean.

"Looks mighty peaceful, huh, Mom?"

It was frozen solid still.

"None of my birdie friends can fish with the ocean frozen!"

We kept driving, rather than getting out for a stroll.  Something about foot-deep snow and a temperature of 6 ℉ (that's -14.4℃ for our international friends).  I don't know why Mom has a problem with that.  That was fine with me, since none of my birdie friends were there.

We drove around for a while longer, then headed home. It was great. Remember - it's not the destination that matters, it's just going and having fun along the way!

Play bows,


  1. We are so glad you got to get out of the house for a bit, and by yourself! We are all getting cabin fever pretty bad.

  2. Absolutely! Neeko loves to go for rides, it doesn't matter where we are going. Sometimes I take her with me when I have to run to the bank or to get gas, or to pick up Les's prescription. All places that have a drivethru or don't require me to leave the vicinity of the car.

  3. I think your ocean is frozen. In other words mom was chicken to get out of the car

  4. Too right Zim and nice to see you riding shotgun and having fun. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Ooh, car rides are fun!! I love going on car rides with Momma. I need to poke her to take me out again soon.

  6. Hi Zim, I wonder if you are getting snow today? Here it is not snowing but still very cold-well it has warmed up to 30F. Hope you get to play outside this afternoon. Hunter loves being in the snow-rolls in it and tries to eat all the ice.

  7. WE would totally AGREE with your mom on this... SCARY as that sounds...
    It got up to a WHOPPING 21 Here today... WE want SPRING.

  8. We love going for rides in the car too, Zim. It's fun just to get out!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  9. The journey is always the bestest part!! Thanks for taking us on your ride Zimmie!!

    Dory, Jakey, Bilbo & Arty

  10. We get a kick out of seeing you riding shotgun, Zim :) you may find this hard to believe, but we don't care so much for journeys! unless maybe if we can take them on our own paws...

  11. That's exactly right, Zim...it's the journey that matters more than the destination. Not much is better than climbing into the car with people we love and hitting the road...:)

  12. Where do all the birdies go when your ocean is frozen? Hopefully they go someplace with good fishing! BTW, our Mom is a wuss about cold weather, too. Snow she is fine with, but when it gets into the single digits, we get the 'Oh, it's so cold out there; we can't be out for long.' Talk about a kill-joy!

  13. Our pups love car rides - Harlow especially if we swing by Starbucks!

    You look like you really enjoyed your car ride Zim! Even though I has lots of fur like you I does not think I would like it that cold, minus 14, yikes!!
