Dear Mommy, I love you and miss you ∀ lot and hope you get home soon. It has been fun here but I want to see you.
I have been trying black raspberries, they are good if you pick them black! The red ones are disgusting.
Outside is nice but a little wet, but they will not let me out without a leash. ∀lso ∀udrey (The shift key and the a key together keeps doing weird things) keeps leaving without me. ∀nd also they scolded me when I ate Thor’s food before he ate it and I snapped at him. Even though he eats my food after I eat it.
We played with chalk. It was super fun! I drew a butterfly, and Thor drew a note for Auntie Joyce that said I love you on it. Mine was better 🙂 .
I love you
Today was fun, Jonathan was happy and I was happy too but then he wanted to see the goats more then me 🙁 ! But when he came back he played with me a little.
Later Adrian gave a science lesson about animals, there are more then one million different kinds of animals! Then Megan read a Dick and Jane.
There also was a thunderstorm it was VERY scary, I was in Audrey’s arms and crying. Then the UPS came, Auntie Joyce would not let me bark and gave me detention (I had to sit quietly until he left), she also would not let me bark my opinion on TailBook.
I have been eating most of my food lately and Thor have been acting like a gentleman, when I am done eating, he cleans off my plate (he ate the rest of my food), then washes it out (licks it out). I try to act nice too, but his bowl is too big for me to clean.
I love you a lot,
I love you and miss you LOTS, but I am not sure if I want to go back and see you or stay here. I am learning a lot.
I am learning to add, subtract, multiply, divide and fractions. I am learning capitals too. Did you know the word fractions has the same first letter as my name? They look different though, fractions has a little f and my name has a big f like this; F.
Later they had me put paw prints on a piece of paper to send to Andrea, like Morris did with his hoof in Morris Goes to School (I read it today). He learned some of the same things I am learning! The book was fun.
I Love You A Lot Mommy,
We released butterflies at the park and in our backyard. Most of them flew off quickly but a few stayed on for a while.
Dear Mommy, I love you, and I miss you a lot! I was at Grandpas and Grandma’s house. But then they dropped me off at Auntie Joyce’s, now I have to stay at her house 🙁 . At least Jonathan is here. It makes it more like Grandpa’s.
Today I had to take a nap. It was not fair, even though I was tired. Every one else fell asleep and no one would play with me so I decided to take a nap on the couch. Auntie Joyce was too tired to notice me on it. When Adrian woke up he saw me, I had to get off the couch.
I have been having some fun, and I got to eat all my food!
I love you
Flopsy’s Diary: Page seven
Dear Mommy, I love you. I have been learning how to do a lot of things like making maple syrup. It is delicious, even though I only got a lick.
To make the sap they drill a hole in a maple tree. I wondered why, until Thor told me that you tap the tree so you can get the sap out. I wonder if there are any treat batter trees? Then Audrey would just have to bake them!
The sap is yummy but the syrup is yummyer. Thor told me that the Sugar maple tree uses about 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup. Other maple trees need a lot more. Why do they use so much!?
After that Adrian and “Daddy” made a little fire pit. Then they started a fire in the back yard. Don’t touch the fire or you might get burnt! I did not like the smoke in my eyes either! But it was fun watching the sap start to boil. Did you know it gets foam on top? It does not taste very good, I tried it when Adrian skimmed some off the top and threw it in the bushes.
Then Audrey and Megan scrubbed some large and deep pans very clean and got all of the soap out. They soaped the outsides of the pans. I’m not sure why but you do! Thor did not know either. He did say not to get the soap inside the pan or the syrup will taste a little soapy. Yuck 😛 !
They keep telling me that they have a surprise for me this week! Hopefully it is not like last time’s surprise; it was having to eat Thor’s food! My food ran out. Now Thor has to share with me. Audrey says it is the exactly the same but I do not believe her. It does not even come from a bag, they get it from the garage! It sometimes is cold! It doesn’t taste as good in my bowl as when I steal from Thor’s bowl.
Otherwise I have been guessing what my surprise is! Maybe a whole bag of treats just for me! Or a HUGE jar of maple syrup for us to share. Or a new toy! I am wondering what it is, because I hope when you get home you can share it with me.
- He might see his shadow, so there will be SIX MORE weeks of winter.
- He might not see his shadow, so it will be spring soon!
- He might NOT come out. (Would that be six more weeks of winter)?
- He might have done it in the hall with the revolver! (No, that’s Clue).
- There might be no more groundhogs 🙁 (That would be awful).
Those are the conditions, let’s look at the the first one: He might see his shadow. That means six more weeks of winter.
Now we need to prevent that so lets look at what makes shadows (Thor taught me that!). Light makes shadows because light cannot bend, and groundhogs and dogs are opaque (That means light cannot pass though us! Thor taught me that too). We just need to find something to block the sun from the groundhog! If we block the sun then that brings us to the next condition.
The next condition is that the groundhog might not see his shadow. That’s no problem, let’s go on to the third one!
This condition states that he might not come out. First we need to set up something like I said at the end of condition one. Then we need him to come out, let’s use groundhog (Or dog if you have none) treats. When he comes out we can see if it is still winter or not.
The fourth condition is that he is playing a game. When he puts away the game he might come out, if he does’t come out try the third condition again.
The last condition is that all the groundhogs are dead. They have been lying to us all this time!
I do not know what what the weather will be like on groundhog day but I hope the weather is nice but I hope it is cloudy enough so there are no shadows so the groundhog will not see his shadow.
It’s too cold. I want spring!
Flopsys story’s; Part five,
Dear Mommy, te amo. I am having LOTS and LOTS of fun here (Maybe to much fun)! And trying my best not to get into to much trouble.
I have been playing lots of games with Thor like Clue (It was Ms. Poodle in the room that has the bed and with the food dish!), Banana Grams (I made some hard words like KONG, Thor, Squirrels, Feeding, and Time!! Thor is pretty good at that one to but I won!!), Uno (We played with Adrian and Megan and I won even though I learned how to play yesterday!! Thor still had seven cards left!!!), Blokus (I won with Blue and Red!!! And Thor had -27 points!!),Guess who (Thor had the English Mastiff!!!!) and Who can Pick up the biggest toy (Thor won that one, He picked up his HUGE KONG 🙁).
I have been obeying much better now. I don’t get on the couches so much. I don’t have detention so often either. I am learning how to play a game where Audrey put a treat in one of her hands and I have to find it. When I find it, it is very yummy. I also have been studying Spanish. Uno means one!
There is not much snow. It is also very cold but not wet. It is not very sunny either. Maybe it will melt and warm up soon, it is freezing outside.
I have perfected how to steal food from Thor, but I still have not tried his water yet. It is still very deep! Thor does not eat my food so often now.
Thor is about siete años. I can’t remember how old I am. I just learned I am lighter then the neighbors’ barn gato. He must eat a lot of mice and birds and other things that sound awful (Like cat food).
I am glad you are coming home soon because I can nos vemos pronto!
