Buddy Got Mail

Buddy, the scooter, got mail. Can you believe that?  His accessories arrived.  He still doesn't have plates though.  BOL!

Buddy now has a cup holder and a little storage area. Mama forgot to take a before photo.  Basically there was just an open area that you could store stuff, but it didn't seem very practical or safe.

The cup holder can come out and then it will hold bigger drinks.  Above the drink holder is a cell phone charger.  Above the closed storage area is a bag holder.

The storage area is small, but it will hold a wallet, cell phone, camera or maybe a GPS.  Mama thinks she needs to have a GPS with her just in case she gets lost.

Buddy now has a snazzy cover instead of a blue tarp.
The campground owner told Mama that she is looking good on the scooter.  Mama asked if she looked scared and she told her no.  BOL!  Actually, Mama is gaining confidence and is ready to hit the streets, but it will probably be another week before the plates arrive.

Dad said he saw a lady older than Mama riding a scooter. She was stopped at a light.
Mama:  "Did she looked scared?"
Dad: "No"
Mama: "What color was her scooter?"
Dad: "White"
Mama: "Did she have both feet on the ground or just one?"
Dad:  "Both"
Mama: "Was she wearing a helmet?"
Dad:  "Yes, a full face helmet."
Mama:  "Hmmm, older than me?"
Dad:  "Yep"

Dad is not much of a talker, but he was excited to tell Mama about the lady on the scooter.

We are going to the Mutt Strut tomorrow. We are not "mutts" and we don't "strut", but we are still going.  BOL!

The Greyhound Who Used To Be Mama's "Buddy".


  1. Sounds like Buddy has been fully pimped out now, although maybe your mama would feel better if there were room for a first aid kit?

    And we highly recommend giving strutting a try, we both wiggle our bums as we walk and point our noses in the air like we own the place. Apparently we don't though, the paperwork must not be through yet! Enjoy your trip regardless of the target audience of strutting mutts.

  3. Ooooh, Buddy is being spoiled, hope your mom doesn't start to spoil him more than you two (We are sure she won't, lol).
    I can imagine how you must feel a little nervous because I would be the same. I'm sure you will soon get used to it and be speeding off to do your shopping. Lovely little scooter!

  4. The storage area on Buddy's " dash" looks very practical, and even charges your cell phone! Makes mine (now sold) seem primitive.
    Buddy, and Buddy you two make friends or I can see some doggy pee on your beautiful new tires!

  5. Hi Y'all,

    It's soundin' more and more like Scout has good reason to be jealous of Buddy!

    Y'all come by now,
