Yes, This is Freckles' Diary...
Today was yet another beautiful Indian summer day. Wow!
For growlmy to be outside in an short sleeved shirt, while she did yard work, in November, that is something. It makes me feel confused about what season this actually is supposed to be! BOL!
On my morning stroll, I didn't see anypup or peep, to chat/romp with...only a few squirrel dudes, who seem to never want to stop and chat with me...
The places where the tree dudes had done their savagery looked very bare. GRR! Some of those trees were my own private communication boards...so I will have to find new places to do that! A pup could get confused with that kind of upsetting event! Those dudes stole my pole! GRR!
Since it was still a nice day, in the afternoon, growlmy put on her yard working clothes. I always pay attention to what she does in the bathroom, because a change of clothing to yard clothes, means fun things for me. I have no idea why I don't care to be back there when I am alone. But when growlmy is out back there, I have so much fun...sniffing and digging...climbing on the yard waste piles, and digging tunnels into them.
Well, today, growlmy put some little red boxes into her pockets, grabbed the pitchfork, and leaf rake, and the BBQ lighter fluid. OMD! Was I confused. That isn't how she pulls out weeds, or cleans up tree branches!
Well, soon I heard a bunch of crackling noises, and I could smell burning...Oh, she made a big bonfire. But no marshmallows to roast, nor sausages on a stick, or potatoes in foil wrappings to bake in it...But was that fire HOT! Just from old sticks and leaves. Even growlmy was surpawsed at the heat and height! She stayed with it till it died down...
Then she lit up the second, bigger pile. OMD! That one became like a furnace! Then I remembered that last fall, I snagged a rabbit who bounded out of the burning log and leaf pile. So I waited patiently nearby to see what this conflagration would cast out for me to chase...Nothing! Can you believe it? So I was confused and befuddled. Why didn't anyone come out of there. Don't all wood piles have resident critters in them? Evidently not!I guess growlmy's activities to make that pile ready to burn spooked anything out of it before she put the flame to it!
But now my huge pile of logs is gone! Where will I climb and make tunnels. Growlmy, your cleanup efforts have left me confused as to how to have fun!
Not to worry, she said...the winter storms will send a new 'crop' of branches and limbs to the ground...ready for making a new pile! OK, growlmy, sounds good, I believe and trust you. But now you have to make sure you do it,(make a new pile), or I will get confused again! BOL!
Then it was time for her to go inside and get supper ready, cause pawppy had come home from work!
You have such adventuresome days! Enjoy the nice weather while it lasts!
It was warm here today, rain, then sun, then rain, then sun, then cloudy and a sudden drop in temperature! Brrr....
Happy Birthday, Mrs. Jack Freckles!! Momma has never known anybody who shared her birthday!! That you share her birthday has made her have a BIG smile on her face....
This is for your Momma, Freckles....
Happy Birthday Cupcake

Happy Birthday smiley
Why, Thanks, Finley and your momma!
I shall go and give this to my growlmy...but first I need to have a little taste...
Here is something else of interest...Growlmy was a birthday present for her own Mom....she arrived 2 weeks early while Gramma was getting ready for her own party! Hee-hee! They were able to share the day together almost all of growlmy's life until Gramma passed away...only missing a few! It always made her sister and brother annoyed that she got a real party, but they only got presents and cake, because Gramma always had lots of friends over!
Then we had a dentist who had that same birthday, and there were also some hockey players on the teams growlmy rooted for in her younger years!
Growlmy also has an Aunt who had her birthday last Sunday, and her Oma had a birthday on Nov 10, and another aunt had a birthday on Nov 11! My Great Oma must have been a busy lady!!
A fire and no food being cooked??? What a waste of a fire!
