Hello Friends. I hope everyone has had a good week.

We have been having great summer like weather. I have been hanging outside every evening until bedtime. Mom says it is going to be a very buggy summer since we have had no winter this year. She said she is going to get some nematoads. She heard that they eat 10,000 bugs a day. (I heard that they eat pineapple houses under the sea).

On Friday, I went to get a drink from the bathroom. The best water in the house, but the water in the toilet was dirty. Mom and dad are usually good at flushing and we hadn't had any kids visiting lately, so we thought it might be a plumbing problem. Mom looked for leaks but everything looked ok. But the water pressure was low, like everyone was taking a shower at the same time in an overbooked hotel. Plus all the water was dirty.

On Saturday we found out that there was a MAJOR, MAJOR water leak in the next town other. It was soo major that the water company had to shut off the water to several surrounding towns, including ours. We still had some water, but we have to boil it before we use it. Now, Sunday evening, we seem to have our water back to normal, but they still haven't removed the boil water order. So mom is not washing the dishes. Even though we have a dish washer. I hope they let us drink water soon, because boiled water tastes flat.

We had another surprise this week. Some boys came to the door. They were selling Girl Scout Cookies. Mom said they did not look like girl scouts. The boys explained that they were selling for their little sister who is not allowed to go off of their street. We live the next street over. Well of course mom bought Girl Scout Cookies. She herself was a girl scout and had a great time being a scout. Plus, it's thin mints!

Then today I had another great surprise. Mom went out this afternoon. She said she had a lunch date so she couldn't take me, but she promised to bring me back a surprise. I was expecting a to go box but guess what she brought me instead. BIG AND LITTLE! Yes that is who her lunch date was with. So Big and Little came over to play. Of course we went for a walk. Big and Little brought their scooters so I got to run around chasing the scooters. And of course we got the FireBand back together. Mom is going to start to give Little piano lessons. He has a real natural talent. Big is not that interested, but he said he would come and listen. Then Big and Little and Mom played wii. They had a lot of fun but all too soon they had to go. They have baseball practice. I hope I get to go to a game soon.

So you can see I have had a fun week. I hope all my pals have had fun, too. Oh and thank you all for the St. Patrick's Day wishes. I hope you all were as lucky as I am.
