70 DEGREES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



It's official!! Spring has arrived!! We celebrated by going to THE ARBORETUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOHOO!! Let's see,we dug ,walked,dug,ROACHED!!! the first official roach of the season(for us anyway) Agatha aka Esther Williams WENT SMIMMING!!!!!!! in the stream,which was muddy.....Arch preferred to just dip his feet,WE SAW A DEAD RAT!!!!!(PL2 didn't seem as excited about that as we were) AND WE MET A WIRE FOX TERRIER !!!!! She was named Snowy and we got along fine(sort of...she snipped a little but honestly don't we all??!!) Her PL had the same kind of situation with Snowy that we had with Archie (remember when he was an outlaw??? and Ms Sophie was going to smuggle him in over the border as Jean Claude just because we got into a spat????)So PL2 and Snowy's PL agreed that this was just crazy...... So all in all a GREAT day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(PS Archie walked a bit more this time and did well!!! YIPPEE!!!!)

It's finally spring time here too! It's been in the mid 60s all week. Bring on Summer.

Esther & Jean Claude, That offer stands any time you need to take me up on it. And I've got a list started of the critter you can take a chomp out of on my behalf, starting with the psycho orange cat down the street.

Wasn't it a glorious day! My mom took my brother and I for a long walk along the water. We even got to have a picnic lunch with dad 2b outside a fancy schmancy hotel. Pet Cabaret is my favorite store too! My mom takes a special route to work so we can drive by and look at our picture in the window. The picture was taken for my mom & dad2b as well as our grandparents for Christmas. People think that my brother is "smiling" in the picture but really I think he's panting! My mom says she's going to buy the picture from her friends L&L when it is time to come down (which is soon because it has a winter theme). Okay I digress...have a lovely evening.

omdog I sure am glad you had such a wonderful day!! Spring is springing!

Patience-please said...

What a FANTASTIC day!!! So happy for you - we've been blowing ourselves blue to try and get this warm weather to you. It worked! (We'll stop now, because all this blowing twisted things up and put us under tornado warnings.)

Would it be okay if I borrowed your "aristocratic title" widget idea thingy for my blog?

Oooooo. I'm gonna call you guys Esther & Jean Claude too (like Sophie). Sounds like a fab day in fab Boston with some fab wires!

I'd like to see Esther in action.

We're really happy for you. Spring is a great time of year. It's Autumn here so we're in for the big chill soon. Mind you it will never get as cold here as where you live.

Toffee said...

Aaaahhhh! The Yankees won. boo. Thank you for letting me use the aristocratic widget thingy. I need to get my dad2b to put that up cause when my mom tried it got "cut off" in the sidebar. I don't want to bug my dad2b with computer stuff again today cuz he just fixed my guestbook issue and now he's reading "the Sports Guy".

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh Agatha...judgin' from the exclamation points, Boston has had a long hard winter!!! Wow...were we ever glad to hit 70 this week too. Babystan (wusshead) had to come in the garage and lay on the cold floor cuz he was too HOT.

Of course Mumsie HAD to take him and get his fur shortened so Baby wouldn't overheat by a degree...and of course she dragged Scruffy and me too...grrrrrrrr.

Um...Archie didn't kiss that other foxie, did he? I'm gonna get a complex if he does.

We all went swimmin' in a river last weekend...it was freezin'! Stan loved it the big lughead!!!

Hugs and kissies,
Lacie
