Wowee Wow Wow

Hey It’s Jet Here.

What a week we’ve had.  It started a little rocky with Monday’s Mischievous remote control, however, by midweek, Ish’s eggs were in the fridge, we found that cool swimming elephant picture and received The Sunshine Award from Savannah and the Liebster Award from my adopted, Little Sister, Poppy.  We absolutely LOVE sharing and passing the awards forward.

Mom’s week went well, too.  After six, yes SIX visits to the Division of Motor Vehicles, she finally received her new driver’s license yesterday.  (the issues were all paper and eyesight related, not driving test related, in case you were worried!)  She caught up on this stuff called bank reconciliations which made her face turn purplish on Monday.  She had three unexpected good things happen in Kitchen Counselor world. And… despite last night’s Heat/Celtic game results (congratulations Celtics, well played), so far, our Heaters are up 2-1 in the series.

JJ, Mom, and I had a few good things happen together.  We made three constitutional walks, two at night and one in the morning before or in between bands of horrendous downpours.  You know how um… uh… ok PETRIFIED I am about storms, so, we consider any time we can get out during this type of weather pattern a victory.

During our Tuesday evening constitutional, we noticed a beige, waterlogged little cutie running across a yard into the street.  Mom cajoled (vocabulary builder) it (him after further investigation) to join us.  Mom checked his tag and learned his name was Gizmo.  He looked like a pug wrapped in apricot poodle fur!  The tag only had a phone number and we left our phone home. He kind of looked like this except he had much curlier, poodle fur and he was missing an eye.

Mom rang the first bell and a nice lady (mortified of K9s) agreed to dial the number and then pass the phone to Mom.  We left a vm.  Mom, JJ, Gizmo and I rang 2 more bells until we learned from Miss Kitty at the 3rd house she thought Gizmo belonged diagonally across the street.  We trekked over there and rang the bell.  A lady answered and confirmed Gizmo was hers.  She had looked and looked and needed a shower before looking more.

Mom told us how proud she was that we helped return a K9 to his loving family, creating a happy ending.

Another great week!

Tasty Tuesday – We LOVE When Ish Visits

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Thanks to Sugar and Kol for initiating Tasty Tuesdays, today is our eighth  participating post!

This will almost be a Wordless Wednesday type post…

Besides giving us lots of attention in a short amount of time, the BEST part of Ish’s visit is this:

Mom has the AUDACITY (vocabulary builder) to deliver all but 1 dozen.  Mom, what about ‘ol Jetty boy?  Don’t I deserve a dozen myself?  I will even concede and share half with Little Miss I’ll Have What He’s Having!

Another great EGG day.



Mischief Monday – She Started It!

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Thanks to Alfie’s BlogSnoopy’s Dog BlogMy Brown Newfies and Luna, A Dog’s Life…for sponsoring the hop!  Click on any of the sponsors to join the hop.  (Unfortunately, WordPress does not accept the coding.)

Ok, let’s get this straight from the beginning.  SHE STARTED IT!  To review:

Mom put three of Ish’s eggs in a pot to boil, set the timer and then began the 6:08 a.m. morning feeding ritual for Puffy, Fluffy, JJ and I.  Because of the inclement weather, she knew that we might need a little more time to digest and gear up for a rainy walk.

I happily jumped on my part of the couch to watch Mom get breakfast ready for herself… until I heard the unmistakable sound of cracking eggshells.  Like a bullet, I zoomed off the couch to Mom’s side.  JJ joined me after Mom signaled her off the counter.  (You know how JJ loves to get up close to watch.)  Two eggs went into a small bowl on the part of the counter across from the ovens, on the way to the table.  (Jetty, I intended to cut the third and share the halves with you and JJ.) Mom needed something from the pantry at the other end of the kitchen (crackers, Jetty).  Next thing you know, the bowl was on the floor with two glorious eggs staring JJ and I in the face.

Since you know I, Jetty the Gentleman, do NOT countersurf, I did NOT relocate the bowl.  However, no one could expect me to withstand the temptation of an egg.  When Mom rushed over to retrieve the bowl, this is what she found.

Oh boy, she was NOT pleased.  She ate the remaining egg with a glass of water after she gave JJ and I the “Naughty” speech.

Another mischievous, but, oh so yummy day.

Two Step Back, One Step Forward

Hey It’s Jet Here.

So yesterday I caught you up on Tuesday night.  Well, I thought Mom was this thing called rehabilitated and understood that she acted stingy with all the food in the house.  Nope, here’s what happened next.

Wednesday – Auntie Liz arrived in the afternoon because my human sister, Rachel, invited her to go to the school play, Hello Dolly.  Since Auntie Liz drove a long ways in traffic she told Mom either they could go for an early dinner or she would eat a banana.  BANANA??? JJ and I had to watch as she meticulously (vocabulary builder) peeled the yellow fruit and broke off chunks to eat.  Unlike Mom, Auntie Liz feels we need LOTS of treats and shared the last chunk of banana with JJ and me.  She teased Mom that she would give us the Kit Kat bar stashed in her backpack if Mom didn’t promise to give us fun treats.  Mom reminded Auntie Liz about the NO CHOCOLATE rule.  Auntie Liz gave JJ and I a little wink.

Thursday – After dropping Rachel at school, Mom hit the grocery store by 7:30.  She had four different groups to shop for:  UMiami class, Rachel’s play (Rachel volunteered Mom to cook for the restaurant scene), Rachel’s friends after school/before the play, and our house.   She returned with armfuls of bags filled with FOOD.  She quickly assembled the tomato mozzarella salad and cut the carrots for the play and headed out to the Asian market for her UMiami class (1/2 Saudi Arabian dishes – ½ Chinese dishes).

Within ten minutes of returning home, she had chicken on the grill, potatoes boiling and the carrots in the pan awaiting their honey/mustard sauce.  Did we get:

  • Carrots?  YES!
  • Chicken? NO!
  • Mashed potatoes? NO!
  • Tomatoes? NO!
  • Mozzarella? YES!

2 for 5 – You make the call.

A few hours later, Mom reloaded the majority of the groceries back into the car and whisked them off to UMiami.  Did she bring any stir-fried beef home for old Jetty boy?  UH UH… What am I, chopped liver???

On Friday, Mom’s schedule finally calmed down.  We kept our usual evening rhythm; dinner, walk, dental treat.  Mom surprised us with meaty bones.  She made salads and gave us tidbits of pepper and cucumber, while she boiled two eggs for herself and two for JJ and I to eat today.  Mom did all this as she spoke to my Nana.

Mom made one big mistake.  She left the eggs, egg slicer, and crackers on the table and returned to the fridge to get her water.  JJ inhaled 1 1/3 eggs in a nanosecond.  To stay fair, she gave me the remainder of the egg and she peeled and ate our eggs.

Conclusion:  Mom needs further treat giving rehab.

Another great and somewhat yummy day.

Farmcation

Hey, It’s Jet Here.

While aggregating (vocabulary expansion) articles for her Kitchen Counselor newsletter, Mom learned about this thing called farmcations (farm + vacation).  Humans can choose to visit for a day or stay for a while on different types of farms.  They can help the human farmer work their land, help with the animals, or just take in the atmosphere.  After Mom described her visit to Ish’s In The Genes Farm two days ago, this K9 wants in!

Ish used to work for Dr. Schaffer, Koko loved him.  Ish left Dr. Schaffer’s office to pursue a degree in Animal Sciences at this place called University of Florida in Gainesville.  Plus, he became a dog trainer.  (In my view, he visits us K9s while really training the humans!)  Now he lives with his human family, five K9s, chickens and goats.

I heard Mom tell Auntie Liz that two of Ish’s K9s are distant relatives of mine, called Anatolian Shepherds.  They help protect the animals from these nasty things called predators like: raccoons, opossums, and HAWKS!  One Anatolian weighs 178 lbs, that’s one mighty K9!  Mom took a few pictures of the shepherds at work… and at rest.

Mom?  Yes Jetty.  Can I visit Ish?  Can I? Can I?  I can exercise those things called instinctive talents Mom, Can I?  I’m part herder Mom, I’m part bird dog, Mom.  (ooh, guess I shouldn’t mention that part, huh?)  Jetty, I can totally understand the appeal, plus, Ish has delicious bananas from his banana trees and the most beautifully colored eggs which you would love.  In fact, I brought some eggs home for us.  Hmmm… we’ll see, Jetty, we’ll see.  Thanks Mom.

Another great day in the burbs and on the farm.
