The incredible life of my sister, Lucky and me, Roxy Dragon Pebbles, otherwise known as The Devil Dog. I have no idea what I did to deserve that name! Honest! Just because I'm a black dog doesn't mean I'm naughty dog.
We never lost power, though the lights did flicker once or twice and we had no basement water so mom figures we got off really easy. Apparently we were on the "right" side of the hurricane/tropical storm, which means that we got more wind and less rain.
This photo is from west and north of us. Boy, am I thankful we are not there!
Thanks for all the concern and thoughts. Like I said, we were lucky and I can honestly say I don't mind being lucky this time.
There really isn't much we can do today. Watch it rain, hope our roof doesn't get blown off, or Mom's sunflowers get flattened, hope we don't lose power, or have a flooded cellar. Still, we really can't complain. There are people MUCH worse off than we are. We hope they are safe and sound and get their power back on real soon!
Mom says Irene is coming and we have to prepare (like taking in all the yard furniture). She also said that if Irene smooshes any of her green bean plants or sunflowers, it's not going to be pretty. All I know is that Irene should stay away from my mom if she's smart, and all of my blogger buddies as well. Getting mom upset is NOT what you want to do. (Of course, that's why I do it all the time, lol)
Mom's coworker, Angel, is in need of prayers and good thoughts for her daughter (young teacher). Mom would appreciate it if you could send a prayer and thoughts of recovery to Young Teacher. She is in real need of them and mom totally believes in the power of prayer and the blogosphere.
When PlusOne is coming home. He's been with Pepere since Tuesday morning, being a "bachelor" and sleeping over. I want to know when he's coming back as well, as Lucky is being a bed hog and I am tired of sharing mom and dad with her.
You know what I think? I think this pug, Otis, is NUTS! Absolutely stark raving BONKERS.
Dora (who belongs to our late friend Fat Eric's mum and dad) sent us this link to the story about Otis and I gotta tell you, I love climbing, but I do NOT think I would like falling. Mom's opinion of skydiving is "why jump out of a perfectly good airplane?"
Anyway, go and take a look at this skydiving pug. (And then thank goodness that your parent is not INSANE!!!)
I have decided that if mom doesn't give me green beans tonight, I am going to eat them right off the plant, just like I do the broccoli. This is her last chance. (Of course, she didn't eat any last night, so that's probably why I didn't get any. But just the same, she ought to be sharing with me, don't you think?
Mom went out and picked herself a whole bunch of green beans yesterday. She cooked them up, nice and tender, and then ATE THEM ALL HERSELF! (Well, she did share with dad and PlusOne.) But NOT ME! I gave her my best begging look too! See....
I am going to have to unleash my secret weapon. This look!
Who can resist that look? Huh, huh. Who, I ask, who? No one, that's for sure. Mom is sure to cave when she sees that look. And besides, Dad's on vacation this week and he ALWAYS slips me wheat thins and pieces of cheese. Who needs mom and her silly old green beans. (me, yup, that's right, me! I want it ALL!!)
