It Wasn’t Pretty.

As much as I hate the indignity of this photo, this is how I spent my Fourth of July holiday weekend. If I wasn’t hiding beside the toilet, I was hiding behind the bathroom door. OR, the best place is on my little sofa upstairs with my nose hidden behind Her side. So the thunder and lightening can’t find me. (Or those darned fireworks.)

You know, I’ve gotten better about the fireworks, really I have, it’s that darned thunder and lightening.

His car got smashed by some old tree limbs over the weekend. A storm just blew through here like crazy taking tree limbs down with it.

It wasn’t very pretty.

On a lighter note, I want to thank everybody for giving Edgar some advice about his skin problems. Y’all are the best.

What You Learned Today:

  • Thunder and lightening make me crazy.
  • Lately, We’ve been having thunder and lightening storms AND fireworks. Tonight and tomorrow night, too.
  • YIKES! What a combination.
  • It’s funny how the storms know to call it quits so people can still enjoy fireworks.

    Oh my what a terrible way to spend your holiday in the lavatory, chamber pot, commode, urinal, latrine, privy! Get a brave heart, courage, some muster. Go visit the Wizard of Oz for courage ~ maybe that nasty wind storm was trying to take you there!!

    PeeS ~ So sorry about the car

  2. I know, I know…I know. Who’s ever heard of a scared Scottie? I need to speak with my analyst about this. Perhaps it has something to do with my breeders. The ones who hated me. Guess I’ll spend my lifetime trying to figure it all out.

    Arroooo! Roodles, Stuart

      Stuart ~ you know what I did for the 4th ~ I got a cowbell tied to my collar and went two communities over to be a part of Madeira Ohio … World’s Largest Cowbell Band for Guinness. Bet you would not like to hear all that ringing! I got a real fast glimpse of myself on T.V. this morning.

    Believe it or not, the bathroom is a very safe place to be in a storm. Weather it be mother nature mixing it up outside or humans that have no better sense then to play with fireworks.
    We’re right there with you, Stuart.

    Sid spent the whole evening in an interior closet. Shelbythought that it was fun to have me all to herself.

  5. Daisy says:

    We don’t blame you ONE BIT, mate. Anyone would have retreated under those conditions.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  6. You and I both like the same side of the toilet, Stuart! I spent too many hours in the bathroom hiding from the fireworks this weekend.

    Love ya lots

    Poor thing, I hung out with my peeps on the roof of their truck.


  8. Jazzi says:

    Oh no Stuart!! I hung out with Mom and I hate the booms too. I stayed right be her feet where ever she went!! Hope you are ok now.

    Hey Stuart – I know I am late – but I am with you on that thunder and lightning stuff – besides the firecrackers they set off behind our house – I was behind the computer, under the bed and following my dad around for ‘protection’ most of the day. My sisters & Mom do not seem to react the same way – but it is defintely not for me…Even hid under the porch when “she” made me go outside!! – Right with you – Tobias…

    Stuart! We and our she peep have been reading your blog for a long time – we think “lurking” is the correct blogger term, but Scotties don’t lurk, as you well know. When we are somewhere, EVERYONE knows it!! We live near Disneyland (<10 miles as the **crow flies), where they do those fireworks just about every night of the year. Duffy – the older, more dignified of the two of us – doesn't much like them, but after several years I've gotten nearly used to them. Occasionally, I still like to hide under Their bed. Findlay – the younger, more foolhardy of us – is oblivious to the ruckus. We balance each other out. We think you are beautiful, Stuart, and are glad we were finally able to convince Her to leave a message here to let you know. Aroooo to you!! –D&F

    **PS: speaking of crows, I nearly caught one once, then She yelled "Drop It!" and I did. I don't know what came over me – following directions?!! So sad, the one that got away. -Duffy

    Oh poor Stuart! We don’t have 4th July ‘down under’ where I’m currently living, but I do sympathise! I’m not sure why two legged ones enjoy those noisy things so much anyway! I’d prefer to run around on a beach to celebrate – far less noisy and far more fun!

    Woof for now. Groucho the Wonder Westie

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
