Thursday – A Little Personal – Twiggy and Lucy Run Ragged

“I don’t know, kid. I think the patio might be a bit hot.”

“It looks cool. The umbrella is up.”

“Well, okay, let’s give it a shot.”

“I like those lounges a lot. A girl can stretch out and be comfortable.”

“They look pretty inviting for sure.”

“That shade is going to feel good.”

“You are right, Little One. This feels good.”

“I’m telling you I have a sixth sense about what is good for goofing off.”

“Do you smell that?”

“I sure do. That scent screams puma for sure.”

“I don’t see anything around here.”

“I’m going back into the potting place. Maybe I’ll scare something up.”

“What is is, Little one?”

“Don’t wait around, Lucy. The thing is as big as a car.”

“What thing are you talking about.”

“A red-eyed puma zombie, that’s what.”

“Hey, wait for me. Little One. It’s tough outrunning a puma zombie.”

“I’m not worried about outrunning the puma zombie.”

“What are you trying to outrun then?”

“You.”

  5. More evidence that Twiggy has difficulty focusing – easily distracted. She was eyeing the loungers, but never made it. Then again, her Puma-sensitive sniffers guide her outdoor life.

  21. Too hot for heavy-duty running around, I think. Monkey would’ve already beat them to the shade … on the concrete under the umbrella. And not even a puma-zombie could make him get up if he didn’t want to. I always enjoy Lucy and Twiggy interacting, John!
