Hey It’s Jet Here.
Wordless won’t exactly work today…
While Mom and Rachel slid the shutters open at dusk last night, we knew that the Gulf faced the onslaught of Isaac. Miss Beverly’s daughter and husband evacuated their New Orlean’s home after preparaing 3 houses (family) for Isaac. Grandma Caz’s, niece-in-law and 120 lb K9 hopefully left their New Orleans houseboat (nephew was out of town). Sending Jetty kisses, JJ hugs and positive energy from the bipeds to all those affected.
On Monday evening, we met Miss Beverly and Neve outside their garage as we began our evening constitutional. Miss Beverly invited us into the backyard, since she had just returned from work and wasn’t up to a walk. Mom had “geared us up” with our raincoats (remember, red for me, purple for JJ and duck yellow for Mom?). Mom figured she would leave them on, since we exited our garage with modest rain and who knew what Isaac band would arrive next.
Well, Miss Beverly’s yard was a veritable (vocab building project VBP) wonderland. Her arica palm privacy hedge, which lines the full back of the yard stood in belly deep standing water (picture is an example, not Miss Beverly’s). Oh the joy of splashing, sniffing, pawing! Since Mom did not want to venture there (the standing water extended about 6 feet before the palms, I ran the fence line and often disappeared into the palms so that all you could see was my tail imitating a palm frond!
Of course, I had to quench (VBP) my thirst in the best water dish of all, every now and then, raincoat and all! (Mom did remove it eventually.) Miss Beverly caught me drinking and swimming!
Mom hosed JJ and I down before leaving Miss Beverly’s wonderland. As we entered Casa Jet, Rachel announced, “what smells like a skunk?” Uh oh, ol’ Jetty boy got busted… remember the dead possum situation? I might have investigated that general area… A LOT! So, at 9:00 p.m., Mom and I had an unplanned spa night. Hmpf… I thought I smelled interesting! (Jetty, you smelled RANK (VBP). I was not going to sleep beside a skunk, I needed my green tea rosemary Jetty boy back!)
Another great wonderland day.
