How Not To Spend a Holiday Weekend

Want to know how not to spend a holiday weekend? Let us tell you because it happened to us!

perfect weather

Sigh. The weather was perfect all weekend long – sunny and cool for July.

not much better

It doesn’t get much better than this in July!

not one single Jeep ride

So why did we hang out at the house all weekend and not go for a single Jeep ride?

new fire wood shed

The humans were busy building a new fire wood shed.

more wood

They still have a lot of wood to load (and more on its way).

late dinner

But the worst part? Our dinner Sunday night was not served until 6:30 pm!!!! I almost starved.

    Our weekend was awful too, cause hurricane Arthur swung by & dumped over 3 ” of rain on us in one day! And some yucky peeps on the next block kept shooting off scary firecrackers on the nights it wasn’t raining. Geesh! At least we got our dinner on time!

    Humans just have strange ideas of fun sometimes, don’t they!

    I suggest ruining what the humans call…movie night in retaliation! Instead of some boring old tv they should be forced to sit and watch you play with each other and perhaps destroy things 🙂

    Those pesky chores – they get in the way of a good time every time!

    Looks like the hoomans are stocking up for the winter! Too bad you did not get to go anywhere…seems cruel and unusual…like not feeding you until 6:30! Hmmp! What a horror!
