End Of The Season

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie. Yesterday, Cam and I had what might end up being the last pool party of the 2016 season.  Sad as it is, it means SNOW is right around the corner, so that's GREAT!!  Well, OK, maybe not snow, but we're heading into cooler weather. Anyway, we played Crazed River Otter Games (CROG), had a pool party, and Cam even took an outdoor shower!  I thought I'd show you some of the highlights today.

Here we are during a round of CROG:

"Say hi, Cam!"
"Hi, everybody!"

We were playing the Queen of the Landing version.

"I'm the Queen of the Landing!"
"No, I am!"


That round went to Cam, I must admit.  We moved on to the pool party.  I helped Mom fill it up.

"How's this, Mags?"
"Just about there, Mom!"

I'm pretty sure she wouldn't know how to do it without my supervision.

When we got it all set, I called Cam over.

"That's good, Mom.  Hey, Cam!  Are you coming?!?!"

She said to get started without her.  Here's a little video:

True to her word, Cam eventually came down and joined me.  She ended up getting so wet that Mom grabbed our shampoo, wet her down all the way, then soaped her up!  After a nice rinse, she jumped back into the pool!

"Don't get suds in the pool!"
"I'm all rinsed, Mags!"

We played more CROG to get dried off, then raced up the deck stairs.

"I win!"
"What's this?  A bug?  Oh, wait.  Did you already get it?"

Anyway, we had great fun! I wish all of you could have joined us. And who knows. With Kansas' weather as it is, we may well have more pool parties this season!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  5. Haroo or hello. What a great day you had-sunshine and water play, what could be better. We had rain this morning and it's been dreary all day; guess Autumn is here, which is o.k. if winter stays away.
