First off we want to say goodbye to our friend Cal who went to the Bridge yesterday. He's running free and full of all the energy of a kitten now.
I'm in trouble today. Well not really me as I was just doing what came natural but the Music Man's in trouble.
Yesterday the whole crew came home from town where they had spent the night working, swimming and going to the Library. It was suppertime and the PM went out to take some measurements around the yard. She is trying to decide what shrubs to order so she was out trudging through the snow mapping out some new beds. It was actually nice out and the wee ones and MM all went outside too. Then Shade and Goldie went out to lay in the front flower beds in the setting sun.
I was left inside. Staring at the fun outside.
The PM knows I will be going out sometime but she wants to try it when it is much nicer, there are no fear of foxes around and she and the wee ones are out doing yard work for hours so she can keep an eye on me. She tried to put the harness on me earlier and I practically strangled myself getting out of it so she knew that wasn't going to be of much help.
Well, the PM was by the pergola and the MM went to go get some gloves inside and he was holding the door open. She yelled, "Watch out, you are going to let Banshee out". He said that was the plan and that I needed to go out at some point. Then as I put a paw on the cool earth he let it slip that he had done this before this winter and that I always just ran back inside.
Well, my little MM, that was then and this is now! I sniffed at the doorway for two seconds then bolted off. The PM was livid and started running after me. I was too excited and ran over snow heading for the open field. The PM got a hold of me while I was smelling a pine cone and tried to take me in. She kept falling through the crust in the snow and twisted her knee, which was already sore from twisting it earlier in the week. I started doing my "hind-legs-pinwheel-move" and caught her twice on the wrist. She dropped me and I took off again. She finally wrangled me under one of the cars and got me when I came out to smell some ice. She yelled "Open the flippin' door!!!!" which the MM did and I was dumped back inside.
I have to say I loved it!!!! I ran around the house playing THoE for the next hour.
The PM's knee hurts quite a bit. She had wanted to get up early and help us blog but she tossed and turned all night and only really got to sleep early this morning. She only woke up at 7. She said we'll have to visit our friends through the weekend. They are going to the wee cousin's bowling birthday party today and the PM doubts she'll be able to bowl as her knee is so wretched.
The MM better be on his best behaviour this weekend.
I am making up for it by being cute and charming.
