Thursday – A Little Personal – Lucy and Twiggy in the Yard

“What are you doing little one?”

“I thought this leaf was a caterpillar, but it’s not.”

“I can vouch for that. It’s not.”

“Why don’t we have any caterpillars?”

“For one it is the wrong time of year. We normally have them in late spring.”

“I just have my mind set on being able to play with a furry one.”

“I think you are just going to be forced to put your mind on something else.”

“Boy life is hard for us isn’t it?”

“Come on. You have everything you want. Think of those poor dogs who have nothing.”

“Yeah I should be a little more grateful I suppose.”

“Now you’re talking. Let’s do a game of tag. You’re it.”

“Wait I think I see a caterpillar.”

“I guess it wasn’t. Oh by the way the Boss is having more cataract surgery today.”

“Geeze. How many is that?” Excuse me gotta run.”

“It’s his other eye. The left one.”

“I can’t hear you.”

He’s going to take a blogging break until Sunday.”

“Okay. I know from the last eye everything goes well. Hey mom. Let us in.”

“Yes, it did go well.”

“I wonder if it is dinner time yet?”

“Not yet, Little one.”

“I guess we should give dad some lovin’ then.”

“I think he would like that.”

  1. Good to hear the surgery went well, John! Maybe you should buy them some caterpillars at the animal food store. I think they will have some for feeding other animals. 😉 Best wishes, Michael

    1. Not a bad idea except for one thing. The caterpillars love plants.

  32. I love…hey mom, let us in. They have this Little Rascals quality, just with tails. I also love your yard. The expanse of it, how it looks as if it goes on forever. So nice for them to have all that space for their ongoing research. I mean, catapillers are very special, and imagine if Twiggy and Lucy saw one turn into a butterfly. That would be big.
