Who We Are

Monday, June 22, 2015

Hi, Dad!

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie!  Maggie and I took Mom on a really, really fun walk the other morning (except for the "it's stinkin' hot" part) and I thought I'd tell you about it today.  Get a drink of water and come walking with us, OK?

So ... Dad was out golfing, playing the course you can see from our deck here at home for a change, so it was just us girls.  The walk started out like most of our walks ...

"Get it, Mags!"
"Margaret THATCHER!"

It would seem that when Maggie does something especially noteworthy, Mom uses her full name! She must have been proud of Maggie's ability to catch that locust -- they're fast bugs! Tasty, too. ...But I digress.

When we got to the crest of the first big hill ...

"Hey, let's turn left for a change!"
"Yeah, can we, please?  Mom?"

To our surprise, Mom gave us the green light to turn left on the road. It was awesome - there are huge hills that way and lots of new smells! We were nearing the vicinity of the Kansas Ocean, when Mom started staring out at the hills. She started saying, "I think ... maybe ... wait, what color shirt was he wearing?" Then she started flailing her arms all around and said we should go walk up one of the new roads they cut in. That sounded fun!

We got to the end of a cul-de-sac when I understood what Mom was talking about!

"Hey!  I see Dad out there!!!  Hi, Dad!!!"  

Mom and I saw him, but Maggie didn't!

"Maggie!  Look!  It's Dad!"
"Ha!  Like I'm going to fall for that one!"

I told Maggie to look for the golf cart, then ... see the sort of black spot to the left of it?  Dad was wearing a black shirt when he left in the morning!  I remember sharing some of my furs with him!  It was Dad!!!  Here, take a closer look:

Hi, Dad!

Then Mom's iPhone rang and it was Dad; she had it on speaker, so we could hear him!  Then Maggie said since it was Dad, we should put on a show for him and his golf buddies!!!

"Hey, Cam.  BOOM!"

Dad just delighted in our show!  I know that because he and Mom decided to hang up so they could totally enjoy watching us.  In fact, Mom suggested we take our show on the road.

Did you know it's hard to make forward progress and play crazed river otter games at the same time? Not impossible, but difficult.  We eventually decided just to walk.

Here's Maggie, crossing the Trans-oceanic bridge at the Kansas Ocean:

"Only snow could make this walk better!"

And here I am, checking the water level from the bridge:

"There's finally water under the bridge - so to speak!"

That's certainly one of the good things about all the rain we've had - the Kansas Ocean is standing tall once again!

"I sure hope Dad enjoyed our show!"
"I just know he did, Mags!"

What a fun, fun walk!  Thanks for coming with us - we hope you had as much fun as we did!

Everyone to the water bowls - drinks are on me!

  5. Oh, using a full name, big oh-oh time! I remember as a child and being out playing with my friends, if my mom called my name and I did not reply, the next was always my full name...and I knew it was time to go home! The power of full names called by moms! Looks like you two had a lovely walk and such a nice surprise to see Dad. Hope he had a wonderful Father's Day!

  11. If Maggie likes crickets, too, she should come walking in our area...there's like 87 squillion of them...

    Nice walkie, Cammie! besides the river otter games, it looks like you and Maggie completed a nice leash macramé project :D How fun that you pups got to spy your dad, too!
