Here is our attempt at getting in the spirit.
|Scout really needs an Eeyore costume.|
|Oh, a squirrel!|
Deccy, asked if I cried like a girl yesterday. No, I did not, I screamed like a boy. It was not a girly scream at all. Deccy, it hurt! I had to have a bandage and it was blue. BOL! Bunny asked if we visited the magic food window after our vet visit. No, we did not. Our window on the Jeep is still broke, so there is no magic food window for us. Mama really misses the magic food window.

|Waiting for the vet. This is before we got stuck with needles.|
Scout had to get her distemper shot. She didn't care. She just laid on the floor and after she got her shot, she just laid on her side. It was like they took the life out of her.
We were so happy to get out of there. I swear, if all rides were to the vet, I would just stay home.
We have been watching all the coverage about Sandy. Our hearts go out to all of those who were/are in her path.

Mama thought the decor was really cute. There are pictures of Wimpy on the wall.
|The table is covered in Popeye comic strips.|
|Wimpy photos are on the wall as well as articles and photos of the place throughout the years.|
|There are three booths and the rest of the seating is around the counter.|
|Yes, this is the LARGE cheeseburger. The cheese is hidden on the bottom. They wondered what a small burger looked like.|
When they left, Aunt Pam and Grandma talked about the grease smell. Mama hadn't noticed it. Well, once she reached the car, she smelled it. They all smelled like grease. I guess that is what you call a greasy spoon! BOL, BOL, BOL! Mama said she probably will not go back, but she was glad she had tried it. She has now marked it off her bucketlist.

|We think it looks better in person than in photos.|
The birds and squirrels have been quite active here since the temperatures have turned cooler.

Mama decided to stop at Merb's Candy to buy the Grandfolks and herself Bionic Apples. These are big apples with caramel and nuts. These are not your normal caramel apples though. The caramel is really rich. Mama ate one last night and said it was the best she has ever had. We didn't get any of it.

Mama then headed to the hospital to visit Grandpa. He wasn't feeling well yesterday. He said he felt fine after the surgery and the next day, but yesterday he was in pain and very sore. He may be allowed to come home today.
That was Mama's big day out. Scout and I just laid around all day.

|Some of the treasures.|
|This is one of the ornaments we told you about. It belonged to her Grandparents on her Dad's side. Notice the hook. it is made of a wire and rope.|
|We have five of these. One broke several years ago.|
|This nativity ornament has always been on Mama's family Christmas tree. She is not sure how old it is, but it is old. The angel was bought when Mama was in first grade, so it's OLD, too.|
|This dress was Mama's. It was crocheted by Mama's Grandma, her Dad's Mom.|
|This was given to Mama's brother on his first Christmas. He didn't want it, so Mama has it. It is 52 years old. It used to be a brass color, but Mama repainted it about 30 years ago.|
|A hat made by Mama's grandma.|
Two more huge trips were made to Goodwill yesterday. The guys there give Mama a big wave when they see her coming. She told them that we are going to be living in our RV full-time. Their eyes got HUGE. I guess they have never heard of that before. BOL Mama made a lot of trips up and down the steps yesterday, so she was really tired last night. She still needs to go through a box that has diplomas and other personal items. The basement is about 75% done. The next room is the garage and Mama is more than scared to open boxes out there. When we came home from our trip, there was a very long snake skin in the garage. Where is the rest of the snake? Yeah, so Mama is putting the garage off for as long as she can.

Dad is fine after encountering Hurricane Sandy. He emailed us yesterday to say it was mainly just windy. He called us just before 9 p.m. to say that all was well and it was over. He said the other part of the island got hit harder than they did.
|Scout's nose looks really long. BOL|
Yesterday, Mama finished clearing out the junk/sewing room. The kitchen is about as done as it can be for now. She made what seems to be a daily trip to Goodwill. They gave her more boxes to fill. LOL (If you need boxes, check with your local Goodwill. They are happy to give them away.) Today, Mama is tackling the basement which has all the Christmas stuff. She is going to keep her Grandparents ornaments that she was told came from Germany. She is not sure if that is true, but they are definitely very old. She will take a photo to show you tomorrow. She also wants to keep a little nativity ornament that is really old and an angel ornament that she has had since first grade. The rest will be donated.
|I Look cute in hats, but I don't like them.|
The Greyhound Who Is Itching To Hit The Road Again

|Papers that needed to be shredded.|
Today is a day of worry. 1) Grandpa is having surgery. We are sure he will be fine, but still having surgery is scary. 2) Dad is in Jamaica and they are having a hurricane. He said no one is concerned there. They didn't board up any of the windows. We hope we hear from him tonight and he says everything is okay.
On the bright side, today is Mama's only niece's 16th birthday! We hope she has a very happy day.

Bunny reported yesterday on our meeting on Saturday. Mama loves the photo of me and Bunny also the one of me and Scout. If you haven't checked it out yet, you should. BOL
Dad's trip is about half over. We are just taking a day at a time and not thinking about how much longer it is. He said they are having a tropical storm today and we didn't even know about it until he told us. We've been too busy to pay attention to much on the news.
This morning, I have been watching the squirrels. It's a rainy morning and I can just watch them from my bed. However, I got up to get a drink and Scout took my bed. She is not even watching the squirrels. She is wasting the bed.

Finally, it was time to go to The American Kennel Club/Museum of the Dog. Sounds classy, doesn't it? That is why Mama was nervous. She kept telling me not to mark anything. Well, when someone tells you not to do something, that's what you want to do. I am happy to say that I DID NOT MARK anything. The only thing I did to embarrass Mama was whine. It's what I do though. She would rather have me do that than mark.
A nice table was set up for Bunny and Blueberry's appearance with cookies for all the dog visitors. Yum! Bunny and her folks had visited in June and Bunny was asked if she wanted to be the dog of the day or maybe it was the breed of the day and today was the day.
Mama wanted to get a photo of all four of us. It wasn't easy.
|Close, but Blueberry is too far back.|
|Scout looks like she is throwing up.|
|Leaning too far to the right.|
|I think we need to give up.|
|WE DID IT!|
|Okay, we are done. You can see the professional models in this photo. We didn't know treats were involved or we would have worked a little harder.|
|Blueberry and Bunny are princesses.|
|Mama said that we are rednecks. We stick our tongues on the floor.|
|It was a tiring day.|
We had a lot of fun. We met several people who enjoyed petting all of us. Two ladies came back several times and petted us. They liked my kisses.
Mama had never been to the museum and still hasn't seen it because she was scared I would do something bad. She is going to go back and tour it without us. She thought about going tomorrow, but they are having a huge pug event and it sounds like it will be too crowded. They don't even charge admission tomorrow because it is too hard to keep track of people. They said there will be 300 pugs! She said she will go back on a quieter day.
We sure enjoyed meeting Bunny and Blueberry. They are definitely dignified greyhounds. We liked their folks, too!
Be sure to be watching Bunny's blog for her view of our day together.
