Watercolor Wednesday – Here We Go Again.

thirdtrycroppedMe and my Thundershirt. It’s that time of year again: fireworks at the baseball diamond that’s just a hop, skip and jump away from my house.

Oh dear.

What You Learned Today:

  • I. Hate. Fireworks.
  • But as I’ve grown older and wiser, I must say I’m getting a bit better about them.
  • Maybe I won’t need my Thundershirt so much this season. Ya think?
  • It’s Wednesday. Time for some StuART!!!!!!!

Terrier Day

Earth Day? What Earth Day?

Earth Day? What Earth Day?

They say it’s Earth Day today. To me, that means Terrier Day. Right?

Terra = earth. Scottish Terrier. Okeydokey.

It’s so nice the whole world is celebrating ‘lil ‘ole me today.

What You Learned Today:

  • Yep, it’s terrier day.
  • So get out there and hug a terrier today. The next best thing would be to hug a dog of any kind. And the next best thing would be to be kind to any animal (but you should be doing that anyway, so it doesn’t count.) And, if you must, hug a cat. Yeah, that’s OK, too. Oh, and be kind to my big ‘ole living room that is Earth. Clean up after yourself, put your stuff away when you’re finished with it, keep things healthy and neat, and that’ll just about do it.
  • Celebrate me in all my glory! Woooot!

One last thing…yesterday I neglected to tell you where I was on Saturday.

Sorry about that: the Notting Hill Gate tube station in London!

A Little Roo for You. And More.

Apparently, I had a lot to say the other day. I was simply minding my own business when somebody walked by my house. Who knows. But, I wanted to say something. So, I did. Around :38 you’ll get a little Roooo. Just a little one. Gotta keep you on your toes.

You’ll also get some idea of what I sound like when a growl. And bark. And growl again. Not a vicious growl, mind you – cause I’m wagging my tail – but just enough growl so you know I’ve got my EYE ON YOU.

That’s what we Scotties do.

What You Learned Today:

  • It’s time for a little Monday Movie.
  • The peep should have shortened it for you.
  • But, I said, “it’s OK, just post it, We’re late today.”
  • Enjoy!
  • Get some popcorn. Throw me some, while you’re at it.

Peter Cotton Tail

easter bunny13I think I should concentrate less on eating the candy in my basket and find some carrots and green beans to enjoy. Otherwise, it’ll get ugly. A Scottie on a sugar high isn’t pretty.

Wait a minute. I don’t eat candy. Thank goodness.

Y’all have a nice day!

Now I’m off to be silent. Like I usually am on Sundays.

Where In The World?

Notting Hill StuartIf I’m not mistaken, this might be one of the first, if not the first, Where In The World? entry.

Kyla figured it out.

You will, too.

What You Learned Today:

  • It’s time to do some time travel.
  • Where I click my Scottish heels together and go somewhere.
  • I didn’t quite make it back to my homeland, but it’s close. Kind of.

Leave it to the Dutch

dutch toolLeave it to the Dutch to invent a wonderful gardening tool. Like this little thing that gets the weeds out between bricks in the patio. I’m glad to see the peep using this thing. It’s about time.

snap to itSee this wheelbarrow? Get to it peeps. You’ve got lots of work to do before the Garden Tour that’s only a month away. I’ll snoopervise.

You need to replace this dead gardenia that the freeze killed. It's a shame. It was so pretty. I liked to pee near it.

You also need to sandblast this little table. And repaint it. And, for heaven's sake, get some glass cut to put that puny plant on. Whatever it is.

See, you need to paint that little table like this nice chair. Hop to it. You've got lots of work to do.

Whatever you do... don't mess with this hole in the fence. It's how I travel back and forth from Sniglet's house. If you mess with it, I won't be happy. Even it does look like trailer trash.

dirty fenceSpeaking of the fence. It needs to be cleaned.

Remember: I’m watching you peeps. From right behind the fence. In the corner. From one of my sleeping spots. In the shade. Thank goodness I’ve got a white patch on my back. So you can find me.

Y’all get to work.

What You Learned Today:

  • My backyard is on a Garden Tour next month.
  • I promised the neighborhood I’d open it up for everybody to see.
  • There’s so much work to be done.
  • Good for the peeps that I’m on top of things.
  • Just as soon as I finish my nap…ZZzzzzz. ZZZZzzzzzz.
