Thursday – A Little Personal – Twiggy and Lucy Inside.

“Well, dad, it’s been real, but I have to go play. So a quick down dog and I’m outa here.”

“I understand. I’ll be here doing a post.”

“Ahhh. A quick upward-facing dog, and I’ll be ready for anything.”

“I thought you were gone already.”

“Had to get in my last poses. I’m out of here now.”

“I’ll come with you.”

“Whoa. Not very warm out here. Must be in the 60s.”

“Yes, the high today is only in the 70s.”

“That Northern wind is pretty brutal too.”

“Yes, it must be at least six miles per hour.”

Hey Lucy, I don’t think it will work out there.”

“What’s the problem?”

“Feels like it’s going to snow. That’s the problem. I’m just not good when it is below 80 degrees.”

“Well, then, let’s find something to do inside.”

“Okay, Dad. You heard Lucy. What should we do?”

“Have you checked out your toys today? Might be something there.”

“I’m looking but don’t see anything new here.”

“I didn’t say there was anything new. I just said something might be there, which I meant to play with.”

“Aw, come on. It sounded like there was going to be a new toy.”

“Sorry about that. I didn’t mean to mislead you.”

“That’s okay. I think I’ll just go bug Lucy. By the way. Playing isn’t your strong suit. So don’t give up writing.”

“Lucy. Take care of your sister.”

“Like in the Godfather, boss?”

  1. What a boring situation for them. Summer feelings in the heart and the bones. But too cold for sun bathing. Best wishes, John! xx Michael

  6. Twiggy’s mind is open twenty-four seven and you guys are the lucky recipients. And umm, I think maybe she needs a new toy. Just saying . . .

    1. She does. Of course, she would like a new toy every day. Her stand-by toys are always played with but she likes something new now and then. (like all of us)

    PS Tell Twiggy that Garfield does a downward facing cat and an upward facing cat.

  19. That formal stretching out before going out is probably something I’m going to have to adopt down the road, but not just yet. It sounds like the girls would like you to sharpen your playing skills? Maybe get them a new toy and they’ll cut you some slack, John!

    1. Thank you, Susannah. Sometimes Twiggy just wants to go do her own thing. Then she wants someone to play with. Then she wants everyone to play with her. You just don’t know. She does good stretches for sure. Thanks for the comment. Yes, it is good to see Lucy. I’m grateful for each day.

And that toy corner is pretty spectacular, even if there isn’t anything new for Twiggy to play with. 🙂 It’s funny, I love weather below 80 degrees. Any higher and I melt. And that last photo of Twiggy and her cuteness melted my heart too. 😀
