Hahaha 🤣 Definitely not a good idea 🐝🤣🙈
So true, it can really hurt!😳🙄🐝
I’ll write this down 😲😲😳😳
Good thinking, don’t want to forget!
Especially that!! Barefoot??😬😬😬😳😳
Yep, it hurts.
I don’t want to find out😳😬
Such intelligent intelligence is hard to comprehend.🤯
Sometimes it’s better to watch and listen to others wisdom than to try and use your own!!😉😊😁
I shall try to do that.😌
Well, you told me to do so.🤨
Ohhh… 😲 so I did…😁 that’s good advice!
Thank you so much!😁😁🥳🥳😄😄
Yes you are!😂😂
Did you go get the feeders in?
They don’t use feeders.🙄
What do you xall the boxes you put their peanuts in??🤨🤨🤔🤔
I don’t put them in boxes. I just put them on the step. Unless I’m sitting out there, then I keep them in a cup on my lap.🤔🙄🙄
Ummmm…… That’s not how I read the chases… they go on and grab a peanut and leave before slim see’s them…🤔🤔
Right, they grab a peanut off the step and run into one of the boxes to get away from Slim and usually out the other side and into the raspberry patch with Slim hot on their tail screaming all the way down one of those prickly raspberry canes with all those prickles dragging against his stomach.
Okay… now I understand..😂😂 Serves Slim right!! Now he’s got a racing stripe down his belly!!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
That’s why he always comes back up scratching himself. The chipmunks are smart enough to run down.😄😄😄
Speed Razer!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Yep. Thar’s raindrops coming down and that can only mean one thing!
Good guess! What was the clue that gave it away?🤔
Drops of rain..😏😏 ya gave it away…😛
More than drops right now, it’s buckets.
That’s good!! Maybe put out a few of the fires and clean the air of smoke!
Unfortunately thunderstorms don’t do much good for the fires, they hit such a small area, plus they always start more fires. The storm is gone and the sky is clearing now.
That was quick!!
Started to rain again.
I can’t keep up with the rain…. it’s raini g it’s not raining!! Wow
Oh my goodness!🥵🥵
Yep, real dark clouds comin.
Think they’re missing us. But that wind! Those trees, back and forth, back and forth, back and forth!😳🤯 Oh, oh, thunder again.
Kinda spooky 👻🤪
Getting hard to breathe in here with the windows closed. I’m going to stuffocate.🤯🤪
No!! don’t do that!!!😬😲
I’ll try not to, really.🤯🤪
I would appreciate that!!😂😂😂
I see you didn’t like my Funtastical Smiles post.😟
BRB need to go get an Icecream drumstick
Sure, eat it right in front of my face while I can’t see you.😒
I can do it too!!😛😛😛😂😂😂
What you can do?
🤫🤫🤫 it’s a secret!🤭🤭🤭🤭
I think so😏😏 I don’t have many😔 but the ones I do have are really really great ones!😁😁😁😁
That’s what they all say. But who are “all”?🤔 Very deep thought for this time of night.🙄🤯 Now I won’t sleep.😬 Oh, it’s raining.😳
What?? It just started! What kinda clouds you got up there??
New style, drip dry.
Ahahahah🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 now that I believe!! lol
Thought you might like that one.😂 Time for bed. Good night Dusty, talk again tomorrow!😁🌙😴😴
I’ll be around waiting😁😁 Good Night 😴 Sleep Good
Actually that’s 3, but who’s counting?
Good Morning!😁 I am officially on my new cell phone network! Let me know if anything strange goes on.😁
Good morning Dusty! Anything strange…😐😐😐
Likeong wait times between replies things like that.
Oh, that kind of strange. I’ll let you know.😁😁
You’re welcome. Is it working better than the old one?
Still the same phone.. just different carrier
You said that, memory going?🤔🙄
It left a while ago!!😂😂😂
What? Not reply on that?? I left the door wide open!😂😂😂
You shouldn’t do that, bees might come in.😬🐝🐝
That’d bee okay!😁😁
Don’t forget the honey.😂🍯
That’s the best part!!😋😋😁😊
Actually that’s the bees part!😃🐝🐝
It sure is!!😉😊😋
That’s what I just said.🤔🙄
I know…. I just had to say it again!😊😊😁😂😂😉
Great thoughts are worth repeating.😁😁
Yes they are!!😂😂😁😁
That is so kind of you.😁
It makes me smile just saying it!😁😁
That is so kind of you.😁
You’re sooooo…… Welcome!😁😁😊
I am way tooooo nice to you!😛😛😂😂😂😂
Oh, I wouldn’t say that. Just right I would say.😄😄😄😄😄😄
Yes you would!!🤣🤣🤣😍
Yes you would!!🤣🤣🤣
Now you’re repeating yourself. Did you notice that?🤔😛😛😛
I’m not even sure I’m writing this??😳
That makes two of us.😳
Busy day today??
Phone is certainly busy, more phone calls this morning than I usually get all week.
At least you’re not lonely 😁😁😉😊
Yep, those scam phone calls are so comforting.🙄🙄
Glad I’m not the only one who gets them!😂😂😂😂
I haven’t had any for a while, guess they were making up for lost time.🤔🙄😳
Yep the come in bunches!!
That’s true, they need to get together and spread them out a bit.
Or not at all!!😂😂
But think of the massive unemployment! Then people couldn’t buy cars and all the car dealers would shut down, then people couldn’t buy furniture so the furniture stores would close, then people couldn’t buy housewares so all those factories would close, then people couldn’t build houses so all the lumber stores would close, then people couldn’t buy pizzas and all the pizza places would close, then people couldn’t buy food and all the grocery stores would close, then there would be no COFFEE which would be catastrophic!!!!
You’re right!!!😲 They should call you all the time!!😂😂😂
Okay, I’ll let them know next time that they should call you all the time!!😂😂😂
Nice try😏😏 I don’t think so!!😂😂
You told me to do it, so I will.😁
I’m not winning am I?🙄🙄
Don’t seem to be.😂😂
I knew it! Oh well 😒😒
Can’t win them all.🙄
One now and then would nice!!🙄🙄🙄
Okay, “then” it is.🤔🙄
When is then??🤔🤔🙄🙄
Since then is past tense then it has already been.🤣🤣
Yeahhh…. of course😏😏😏 I’m not winning again am I?😒😒
That depends on how you look at it.🤔🙄🙄
I look at it from my perspective! HA!😛😂😂
Perspective, that’s why I gave the squirrels equal time tonight with the chipmunks.🤔🙄🙄 Okay, maybe that’s a bit different. But it’s the best comeback I got.🤣🤣
I think you’re doing just fine!!😂😂😂😂
But what about the squirrels?🤔😳
They’re doing fine too😂😂😂😂
How do you know, you didn’t read their post?
You’re right of course!! But I didn’t think you’d post while chatting with me!!😂😂😂😂 I will read it before bed!!😂😂😂😛
It was all ready to go beforehand, just needed to press publish.😁
On my way to church, back later!
Okay c u then
You’re eyesight is getting good!😂😹
Don’t tell me what it is!😳🤔
Are you still sleeping 😴🙃
Someone else talking about me sleeping in the middle of the day. Not a bad idea though. But I think I’m awake.😁🤔😛😛
That was way back early this morning!!😂😂😂
I think your clock is slow or something.🤔🙄⏰⏲🕰⏱⌚⏳⌛
Maybe the network clock is slow or something😂😂😂 ⏰🕑🕙🕚🕖🕘
Seems to me I just heard something like this already.🤔🙄🙄⏳⌚
That was a long time ago! Where have you been??
Living in the future I think.🤔😳😂
Left without me huh?🤨🤪🤪🤪🤪😂😂😂
Couldn’t help it, your clock was slow.😛😛😛
Happens when I forget to wind it!! ⌚⏱
They have wind up clocks now? Guess they’ll likely replace the good ol standby…⏳
That’s what happened!! I forgot to turn the hour glass over!🤪🤪🤪
Hey, you’re back!
Kinda 😔 kids stopped by for my birthday.
Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to yououououououououou!!!!!!!!!!🥳🥳🥳🥳🎈🎈🎇🎆🧨💣💥🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂 Muffin and I are washing dishes at the moment, won’t take more than a few months.😂😹
That’s a lot of dishes!!🤯😳
Well, um, we haven’t done them for a day or 4.
Okay, maybe it was 5, but no more!🙄🙄🙀🙀
That’s getting g into my range there!🙄🙄🙄🙄😂😂
Good, next time you can wash them.🤪🤪
No way!!! You eat more than me!!😛
Hey, there’s two of us here don’t forget!
Thats true… but shes smaller than you 😂😂
What’s that prove?🤔
That you eat more than she does!😛😛😂😂😂
Are you sure about that?
🤭🤭🤭whew that was close🙄🙄🙄
Yep, if Muffin had seen that, you would have been in BIG trouble.🤔😳
You know me…. too dumb to know better..
I am sorry I made a joke about eating… 😔 it was thoughtless of me. Good Night 😴
Muffin forgives you.😸
But not you…. I guess I’ll have to be satisfied with 50%
Well, it was her eating habits you were talking about. Right?🤔 Right?🤔 You were talking about mine too, weren’t you??🤨 You know what that means don’t you?😒 We’ll both forgive you. hehehehehehehe!😂😹
But not you…. I guess I’ll have to be satisfied with 50% Thank you🙂
Have you noticed that you’re repeating yourself lately?🤔🙄😂
Yeah, yeah I have…. I am beginning to believe people aren’t hearing me.🙂
What was that? hehehehehe! Have to finish my dishes, but I’ll be back in a log’s toss.😁
You still here? Told you I would, didn’t I?😛😛
Did you? I must have missed that part🤔🤔🙄🙄
I said I would be back in a log’s toss and I was, right to the minute!
Takes me a lot longer than that to toss a log.. how big is it and how is it done?
It’s 8 ft long and 8 inches across for beginners, 12 inches across for more advanced types. It’s a 100ft long course and you have to toss the log to the end with as few tosses as possible. Another one is just tossing it and the farthest toss is the winner.
Why would anyone want to do that 🤔
It’s a contest, you know, during fair times, like a fall fair with rides and pies and games and stuff. You get a nice ribbon if you win plus a slice of the log with a number 1 carved on it. If your first, a 2 if you’re second, a 3 if you’re third.😁
Huh! Go figure🤔
Never seen or heard of it. I’ve seen log rolling never tossing..
Log rolling is another good one. Another one is loading a small logging truck. Two guys work on that one, one tosses the logs up while the guy on top loads them properly on the truck. That one is a timed event.😁
I like pie throwing.. much more fun and tastes better
But there’s nothing like a good log tossing competition. The energy of the crowd going wild yelling “log, log, log”
Yeah… crazy stuff I’m sure!!
Yep, then there’s the log sawing and wood chopping!
Say…. that’s exciting stuff.. I’m partial to demolition derbies and tractor pulls
Guys actually pull tractors??
Only the big ones!
Wow, with the brakes on?
No they wear shoes! What kinda farmers do you have up there?
We don’t have farmers around here, this is forest country. You know, trees, rocks, lakes, rivers. No farms.🤔🙄
No tree farms huh? Odd! We have all kinds of them around here.🤔
Trees grow naturally here, why would we need a tree farm? So strange.🙄
Worlds apart…. in less than 400 miles! Humpf strange world
Did you just call me strange? Well, okay, you’re right, I am.🙄🤪 I keep trying to tell people that too and, most believe me!!😂😂 Did you read the first chapter of my new story yet?🤔
Yeah… it’s starting out very exciting… good thing they weren’t very good shots. Better be careful on this one. They seem to be serious about hurting people.
It sounds like it must be someone who knows me, but who? Why else would they want to get rid of me and the cats? And how does this new case tie in? Or does it? Starting off with lots of questions.
Yes indeed! It should be a good case to follow!
I want to know the secret identities of the man and woman on the phone.🤔
Yeah, that was an interesting conversation 🤔 seems like she was right there amid the action..
Yes, that is so true, and scary. How could that woman know what had happened so fast unless she was watching it?🤔😬
It’s like she was tight upstairs watching it all🤔
Most very exactly what my thoughts were too. But how is that possible?
I guess we’ll need to wait and read it as it unfolds…😬
Yep, but that little bit of suspense is killing me! I want to know now!😲🤯
Better start writing it now then…
I already know, but that’s the worst part!
Comes along with knowing it all… heavy load! But you’re up to it! Not sure what “IT” is though!🙂
Yep, that’s it for sure. Well, good night Dusty, talk tomorrow!😁🌙😴😴
Good Night 😴
Did you forget to wake up today?
No I’ve been awake all of today and a good portion Of last night .. Busy beating myself up for doing something…
Sorry to hear that. We’re kind of in the same position today.
Yeah? I am sorry to hear that also… Some days are just that way I guess..
Yep, it happens. Interesting it happened to both of us like that.
Birds of a feather I guess? Gooney Birds!😉😁
Hey, up here we’re loonies not goonies!😁🙄
One letter! Can’t ya give me that one? Besides the loons might take exception to us appropriating their species!🤣🤣🤣🤣
That’s okay, they laugh at us all the time!😂😂
That’s true!! I wish they would do it during the day instead of at night! Hard to sleep wondering who they’re laughing at the most!😂
I figure they’re telling human jokes which is why they laugh so much at night.😂😹
Maybe they’re watching me walk to the bathroom on my underwear??🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 now that would make anyone laugh8
Can’t argue with that one.😂😂
Nope me either!!😂😂
That makes 3 of us!
Hi Muffin! How was your cat nap?
Shhhh. She’s having her pre bedtime nap.🤫
It’s okay, she didn’t wake up.
Good deal! How’s the smoke up that way? Pretty hazy here again today!
Very smoky again, but it may not be so bad tomorrow. We have less fires now though.
I read thar in your post today. They’re combining into larger ones.
Yep, getting more over the 100,000 acre size all the time.
That’s a bit scary when they start getting that large! All that can be done is let them burn out.😬
So true, they are just too big to fight, very dangerous when they get big like that. The largest is now 474,840 acres. Unless there is substantial rain fires like that will burn a long time, perhaps right up to winter.
Wow! 1/2 million acres! That’s huge!
Yep, they’re just letting it burn, can’t do anything with it. It’s in one of our provincial parks.
Ooòoohhh… that’s too bad!! Poor wildlife… tough for them to escape something like that
Yes, larger animals not so bad, smaller animals don’t have a chance. A lot of times though the smoke wears them down quickly so even the larger animals can’t make it.
So sad 😞
Sorry dozed off there😬😬😴😴 Better get to bed 🛌😴
Everyone has gone home… so now I can focus on chatting if you still want to..🙄🙄
Just sent a reply. Back shortly after Muffin and I are finished washing dishes.
I would have been here sooner, but my partner quit washing. She said her tongue was getting tired.
I can understand that! I hate when that happens!!🙄🙄🤭🤭
I offered to let her dry for a while, but she doesn’t like drying, her tail gets wet.
I can only imagine what a wet tail would feel like!!😲😳😂😂😂
Apparently she doesn’t like it too much.😾
I know I don’t like wearing g wet swim trunks!!😂😂
What??🙄🙄 I don’t like wet drawers!!🤭🤭
Must be hard swimming.🙄
Not really… just leave the trunks in the boat! Nice and dry when I get back in the boat!!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
Now I know where Sir George gets his nice collection.😂😂🤣🤣
So that’s who’s taking g them??🤨🤨🤨🤨🤨🤨
Tell him I want them back!!😂😂😂
He has the best collection, the envy of all the other gulls!😂😹
Did something happen to you?
Yep kinda!😂😂 I’m back now though!!
Are you sure?
Not completely! But that’s me! 😂😂
Are you there now? Or did I miss you?
Be back in a few minutes, got side tracked!
Boy, do they hurt ! Do not try it ! Lovely pic ! ☕️☕️🙂😻☕️☕️🐝🌼🐝😟😢
Yep, I know it!😂😹😳🐝
