The river clean up continues...The company responsible says that they are making considerable progress, but others would negate that. We are sure it will take months or maybe even years to be normal again. And what of all the dead wildlife. Now the whole balance of nature will be upset, even though things may be cleaned up. Are they going to 'restock' the animals? When you see the horrible pics of those poor pathetic creatures, you want to cry and rage all at the same time.
When you drive over the bridge there are booms all along the water's edge, and also many more stretched across it. A stark reminder of what is going on.
Many peeps and pets are evacuated, and the ERs are getting cases of peeps being ill from the fumes. We have not had much rain, which, even though the ground could use it, keeps the clean up efforts a bit simpler.
Thanks to all you pup pals of mine who are putting their mighty stamp of dogproval upon my page, past couple of days...Imagine if it was steak! BOL!
I have been reading and barking in and at Izzy's diary. She is Ernie George's sisfur. (#812092)
Well she was naughty and stole some of her Mama's treats...you all ought to go there and have a good laugh!
This reminded my growlmy of something I did a few years ago...long before I knew about Dogster...
Growlmy was getting food ready to take to a picnic. A potluck. She had to make a main dish and a dessert. Well this was long before I had doggy doors...
Growlmy had almost evfurry thing ready, and all that was left to do was get organized and get me outside to 'be a big boy'.
So out I went, and she put the casserole in a box on top of some other stuff, thought since there was a clung wrap on it, under a foil cover...that I wouldn't bother it...and she also had the stupid thought that I would be a good boy and not try and jump up to the shelf where she had put the food...
She went back in the kitchen, and when she came back...there was licking my chops me...looking as pleased with myself as could be! Look What I found, Growlmy! What's for dessert?
Growlmy had forgotten that the back porch door was ajar, so that I could get back inside...and stretch my self really far so that my long torpedo snoot was able to get into the box and gobble up about 1/3 of that food, after I ripped through the plastic wrap, and foil. It was a curried chicken and rice dish...fresh chopped cooked chicken, on top of fluffy rice and topped with a creamy curry sauce topped with a layer of cheese and croutons... One of my furmily's faves! But this one wasn't going to the picnic...
That was one of the few times in my adult life that growlmy was stunned by my craftiness and clever devious abilities! I thought she was going to explode!
Growlmy doesn't remember what she ended up taking to that picnic...maybe some KFC! BOL!
But she doesn't put edible stuff untended in our back porch anymore, either...the marauding Mighty Hungry Jack might devour it!!!
Stolen chicken - I am drooling just from reading about it! Yum yum!!
oh, if I only could have stolen the chicken with ya!!!
Oh dear! We're so sorry for the river mess you all are dealing with, but thanks fur sharing the funny story!
How'd that chicken curry agree with you, Jack? BOL!!!!
You are Mighty crafty, dude.
