Jumpin’ JJ

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Sorry again for the late post, Mom had a busy day at the Farmer’s Market.

This morning, during our constitutional, Mom told JJ and I about how this week, jelly beans hold a prominent spot for humans.  She explained the colors, flavors, and sizes making JJ and I do this thingie called salivate. (Vocabulary builder…)  That got Mom thinking about Mexican Jumping Beans.

Mom never really knew what a Mexican Jumping Bean was, grownups used the term when kids had lots of energy and bounced around a lot.  Mom’s mind then segued to March Madness. She watched a portion of the Kentucky/Louisville game yesterday on a break.  You know I think I must face the fact I’m becoming a basketball fan by default.  The players sure can jump.  Mom explained they jump to shoot the ball for points as well as jump to fetch the ball, which they call rebounding.

Mom’s mind jumped next to JJ and me during the last few days.  She told us that we were acting like jumping beans, especially JJ, who she said could probably help rebound basketballs, too!  Mom said this music group called the Rolling Stones sang a song called Jumpin’ Jack Flash.  That’s when it hit her… Jumpin’ JJ!

Another great jumpin’ day!

  1. Hi sweet Jetty – Hey for Jumpin!! So glad mom;s crazy busy week is over and she can relax a bit.

    I was jumpin for joy this weekend also – because my sis and bil (the ones who visisted) adopted a lab mix puppy from their local shelter in MA yesterday. They had been planning it for several weeks as the puppy came from a rescue in TN. So we all were skyping and watching the sweet puppy, named Abby, play, nap, eat, run etc. I think we must have a had 50 phone calls between her and I this weekend!! I;m so happy for them they have been very sad since their 17 year old dog passed a few months ago.

    Another jumping for joy day!!!

    sending lotsa hugs and kisses to you, JJ, MOM, Rachel, Puffy and Fluffy xoxoxo
