July 4th progressive blog

12:00 noon
Hope everyone is happy and comfortable today. This is going to be a very lazy day for us. My mom is spending the day at home and she thought she would update this blog entry as the day goes on.

When my mom sleeps in she really sleeps in. We didn't get up until 11 am! It's sunny right now, in the 80s, low humidity. Some of us are running around outside. Mom is drinking coffee and watching MUSIC MAN (it takes place on July 4th). Pretty soon, knowing her, she will get up and jump around singing all the songs. She is a nut. There she goes--76 trombooooones...!! Did she say BONES???

Beagle trivia: did you know that the white tip on our tails is called a FLAG?? We wave our FLAGS everyday!

Georgia & I have our butts to the camera. The others are Davoo, Baby, Perry, Beau & Bitey. Mom threw some food out for us like we were a bunch of chickens! Still waiting on the hot dogs.

1:30pm Wallymelon for ME!! Yuuuuuh---uuum!

4:00pm -- Sun is brilliant and hot!
Mom finally got the grill put together. Don't worry things are further away than they look!
My mom has YANKEE DOODLE DANDY on now. She turned off our air-conditioning because it's acting funny. Probably froze during those cool nights last week. Nice breeze though.

Belle is comfortable lying in the sun.
Baby is enjoying a good roaching in the grass that needs cutting again.

6:30 pm
Sky is getting cloudy. It's probably going to rain soon.
Meat is grilling now. Hickory is smoking.

But WAIT!! There's MORE!!
And MORE!! We need doggie friends to come help us eat all this!
And, at LAST! I get my hotdog. I'm a hot Yankee Doodle Dandy Dog!
Oh, YUM!Thunder is starting now. We'll stay in and watch the Boston Pops like my mom does every year.

It was a good day. Thank you for visiting with us!

Mom was a bit nervous traveling back along the Charles after it was over...but seriously, she says, it was UNBELIEVABLE and totally worth it being as close as one could legally get to the barge. Truth be told Riley and I did not get to go...shhh...

Mango said...

What did your mom do with all that food? Hope she didn't try to eat it herself or she could splode.


River said...

My mom wrapped it all up in foil and put it in the freezer out of our reach--even Summer's (dalmatian) reach and she's tall on her hind legs. We will be able to enjoy a bite though because we can all gather around her chair and look so sad and starving that she gives in everytime!

love & wags,
