Can you buhlieve August is already halfway over???? Whut have y'all been up to? Well, I've had a few adventures this summer an' I wanna share 'em with ya.
First off, I got the chance tuh meet a real live PIG! Yep, I said pig, not pug. An' yer not gonna buhlieve this but the ol' boy's name was HANK!
Now my mom an' Aunt Laura thought that me an' Hank the pig was a lot alike. I want you tuh check out these pitchers an' see whut YOU think.
Nope, I just don't see the resemblunce.
Anyhoo.....me an' mom duhcided tuh make a trip out tuh St. Louie an' Oklahomer tuh meet some o' our blog friends! Check it out!
Look whut we come acrosst in Illinois!
I was all set tuh whip out the checkbook but mom said her tree-huggin' hippy car couldn't tow it back tuh Indiana. Shoot.
At least she'd stocked up on snacks fer me. Yep, these are pork rhinds an' I tore up the bag an' ate 'em all bufore the ol' gal could stop me! WINGO!!!
Buhfore I knew it, we was in St. Louis, Missouri.
An' just WHO's doorstep did we land on? Gina, Vito an' Colonel Vinny!
Well, hey there, Gina, honey!!!
Now Vito an' Colonel Vinny are perty nice kids BUTT......they duhcided tuh test my wrasstlin' abiluhty an' they tag-teamed me!
Thank gawd I still have my combat skills (that I learned in 'Nam), so I hopped up on the highest perch I could find, an' gave 'em whut fer!
"Listen here, kid.....I may be old but I'm wirey I tell ya what!!!"
Hail, I even put Vito in the brig!
(I think I mighta had a flashback fer a second 'cause I felt the need tuh take cover under a tree!)
"Aw, hail, guys.....no harm done. Now let's go back inside an' relax an' I'll tell ya 'bout my tour o' duty in Da Nang."
Yep, Colonel Vinny......I killed fitty men in 'Nam.
Next thing we knew the doorbell rang an' this cute little gal an' her mom an' gramma joined the party. This here is Payton!
We like this little gal. She kinda reminds me an' mom of a younger O'Mally! An' her mom an' gramma are real nice, too. They brought treats fer us fellas!
Vito an' Colonel Vinny were up all in Payton's craw, each one wantin' tuh be her boyfriend. I'm perty sure I heard her whisper to her mom "Mommy, please make these boys leave me alone!!!"
So all in all, it was a real good visit an' we finished up with a group pitcher.
So that was day one o' the trip. I'm all wore out from all this bloggin'! I'll start up again with the rest o' the trip in my next post, so be lookin' fer it!
Butt buhfore I go, check out this fancy worsh cloth foldin' they did at the hotel! An' they even pervide ya with soap!!! Yep, me an' mom only stay at the fanciest places I tell ya what.
