A Queen’s Command

Do you know how to respond to a Queen’s command? You obey it, of course. Especially when it comes from Queen Natasha the Evil.

rainy day

What a rainy, dreary, foggy, cold day.

Our temperatures yesterday hovered just above freezing. It rained steadily. And waves of fog rolled across the mountain. All in all, just one of those really dreary days. We were all going stir crazy when the Queen suddenly issued her edict.

RV Weekend

I demand an S-RV weekend!

Hmmmm. An S-RV (Siberian Recreational Vehicle) weekend. What an excellent idea. Bags packed. Dog food loaded. S-RV ready for launch.

no grumbling

I didn’t even have to grumble to get my way.

    THE QUEEN HAS SPOKEN! Thankfully it was a great suggestion…I mean command. I’m sure those S-RV trips are the best!

    We all say: Okay, we promise not to post another reminder about the food bowls! Once again, hope you can escape from the dull, dreary, gloomy weather, and find some blue skies and sunshine for the weekend. Wish we could, but it seems to be all around us in the Peace Country right now. —- Enjoy!

    Just because they’re so important and three’s the charm, here’s a third reminder about those bowls! (laughing)

    Bowls?! Did you pack the dog bowls? Probably ought to get a set to keep in the S-RV 🙂

      Want to know the bad part? We have a set of bowls just for the S-RV. Hu-dad took them home to wash them thoroughly and forgot to put them back in the S-RV. We do have to watch him closely.

    Hope you all have a wonderful time! We eagerly await details and pics!

    Queen Natasha, you don’t look at all evil! You are far too beautiful and endearing.

    Don’t forget the bowls!!

      Excellent point! We have to manage the Hu-dad very carefully.

      I was thinking the sme thing lol and make sure the S-RV doesn’t head north, it just gets worse. Have fun Your Royal Highness and all your subjects; both 2 and 4 leggers.

November 28, 2021

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.
