The Best Laid Plans.........


Well.....hello ta all.....


We thought we were gonna stay at the cottage fer a week until election day 'n get a roof up over the front deck.........


Boy, were we wrong........ Pap went ta Tidioute on Tuesday ta buy some wood and we figured that we would get started on the roof by Thursday cause they were callin' fer some snow Tuesday night and Wednesday....... But nice weather on Thursday and Friday.



Well, we got snow all right...between 6 and 8 inches and it was wet 'n heavy and it brought down a ton of trees and the electric lines with 'em. Our power went out thru the night Tuesday and Wednesday it was still off and Thursday mornin' we decided ta empty the refrigerator before everythin' spoiled and head home. The power never came on until sometime Friday morning.



'N Toby was enjoyin' himself at the cottage too cause he gets ta run around like a nut there. Here he is lookin' like he owns the place.

Our Halloween Visitor


This is Parker's first Halloween and even though he didn't really know what Halloween was all about, he got dressed up anyway and stopped over ta show us what he looked like.

He was a turtle and ain't he a cute one ????? We would never look that cute all dressed up.



Aw, the age of innocence.....



Parker the turtle....our big bruver's little boy.......

Action Heroes Fer Hire



But now before we left the cottage, me 'n Toby got ta tuggin' and Gram got ta videoin'..... Actually we were practicin' our growlin' just in case they ever need any action heroes that make growl noises real well. Tell us what ya think........





Bet ya were scared weren't ya ????? Now tell the truth...... those growl noises were perfect...... weren't they ?????? Gonna scare the pants off anyone who ventures by fer sure....yes siree.....
Yep, 'n my Mom had ta come over ta make sure her little boy child didn't need any help or rescued either. A stare from her put the brakes on any further growlin' 'n tuggin' too.......

Well, we're headed back ta the cottage after the election so we hope this tides ya all over til we get back.
