By the sea by the sea by the beautiful sea

Well,Pl1+2 are having new windows put in the back of the house and they started today and will be here for 2 more days. PL2 had to work so PL1 was here with us ....and the workers.Now the guys do alot of banging....aLOT of banging......so guess what we did(maybe Archie a little more than me but I did my fair share) And they were here from 8am until 5 pm...and we barked that whole time.....This will be another post....but PL2 is frantically trying to think of what to do with us tomorrow.....Pl1 is banging his head against the wall for some reason saying....I have to get out of here...so...we will take you back a few days to Sunday....pre window instillation.... a lovely lovely day..... Archie was trying really hard to think of something to do......




And he came up with this....The harbor Walk which is behind the JFK Library...(PL2 is still a little sniffly after seeing Senator Kennedy give a speech at the Democratic Convention last evening,in the middle of his cancer treatment,but that is also another post...)



It is beautiful and it was a PERFECT day for it!!!! This is the back of the museum..and this is President Kennedy's sailboat............
Here is the ocean and it smelled soooooo good........

We took a quick walk onto the dock...and peeked out at the ocean....


Isn't it nice??
Archie is deciding which way we should go(well it was his idea after all.....)
Way over there on the other side is Boston.......
Here it is again....
Just a pretty shot during our walk....



This is the back of the museum/library......

While we were walking we met a black lab....and her owner told us that up ahead there was a little beach where we could swim!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!!!!!!!!!You know me and water!!!!(but I really have not actually been in the ocean yet..)
Here is a short feature presentation of my brother and I at the beach.......

I gotta tell you there were some RIPE smells there!! FABULOUS!!!! Like fish and clams and snails,,,it made a girl(but funny not a boy) want to ROACH RIGHT IN THEM!!!!) Note how quickly my neck is SNAPPED back by PL2 as I try to roach in the delicious fragrance..



video

I am trying to figure out the waves here...


video



I am looking across the ocean thinking of Jackson,and Eric and Molly and Taffy and Blue on the other side.....






SO they DRAGGED us out of there and we continued our walk and found this lovey gazebo...




We were getting a little pooped..all that walking and swimming and fish roaching... so we sat for awhile.....





Archie I said..look out across the ocean and send a telepathic message to all of our friends.....
(HELLOOOOOO you are looking the wrong way???)



PL2 found this shell so we will have a memory of our walk....... Archie thought it smelled great..like the sea....



I sort of tried to eat it.....

While we were walking back to the car PL2 looked around and noticed that it was like being at the Cape(Cape Cod )with all the plants and then she realized that it was done on purpose because that was President Kennedy's favorite place......








So that is the tale of our wonderful day adventure on Sunday....before the guys came to the windows....before we barked for eight hours straight...but that is another story......

WHY DO I ALWAYS GET BLAMED by archie

So it was PL1+2's turn to pick up the vegetables for their Community Supported Farm Group (CSA))and there would be no room in the car for us and all the vegetables so we had to stay home.....When they came home they walked into the living room and saw THIS...............




A roll of paper towel a little shredded..........It kind of wasn't originally in that position and it wasn't shredded like that.......
So they immediately came into the kitchen TO MY BED....LOOK HERE I AM SLEEPING.......




And here SHE is appearing to be asleep right......an innocent little face.......




What's that PL?Did I WHAT?????????????






Now I have been watching PL2 when she takes pictures and I learned how to use the camera.............








DOES THAT LOOK LIKE ME??? DO I HAVE A DOT IN THE MIDDLE OF MY HEAD???AND MOST IMPORTANTLY DO I HAVE A RED SOX COLLAR???NO NO NO A THOUSAND TIMES NO......






Ladies and gentleman of the jury... I rest my case.....


PS PL2 said to tell you that the kitchen floor was just pre mopping......

Just Archie being Archie

SO you know PL1+2 watch TV in the living room in the evening and they often have a cup of tea and a little something(DOES FIG NEWTONS RING A BELL???) So they went in there last night and PL2 found this(on her side of the couch...).........

Oh brother,he doesn't even know to put the whole bag in water!!!!!!(note the little spring that had been in her Elvis Presley pen that someone had given her is NOT IN THE PEN ANYMORE!!!. At first she saw the pen and nearly fainted because she thought this was pen........ON THE SOFA!!!! (he would have been in serious trouble....)

And then this morning PL1 remembered this toy that is so dear to my brother and here is a repeat of his last performance with it. I want you all to remember it really is not easy at all........We thought( the 3 of us) that maybe he would play with it a little differently ............

HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our new koi pals and Chapter 2 of PL2's new book for bored dogs

Well we have had the great honor to have 2 of Butchy and Snickers kois named after us!!!! We are thrilled and Archie is a bit besides himself.He wants to put in the paper and try to get on the news and tell everyone. I keep telling him that there is a lot going on in the world right now and perhaps people might not be as excited as we are.....so he has agreed to hold off on contacting channels 2,4,6,7 and is just going to get a GIANT billboard put up on the Massachusetts Turnpike...Thankyou pals!!



For those who asked here is chapter 2 of the book for bored dogs.........

Look what we got,something for Petey and our pal Jax

Well we sort of stayed in and rested today..We are tired from all our zen transfer to Jax and we need to continue to help his healing,so we are just resting for a little before we start up again.Look what we got in the mail today!! Well PL1+2 really got it but it is cool!!!

And PL1+2 went to Kittery Maine today because they have a MILLION outlet stores and they wanted to see if they could get some stuff...They got some stuff alright......ABOUT A THOUSAND POUNDS OF CANDY.There is a store there called Yummy's(you can shop online there also) and it is all candy, and they have candy from a million years ago(see the Charms??Remember them??) and now PL2 says she is sick because she has eaten about 1200 pieces of chocolate licorice and bulls eyes...THEY ARE SUCH PIGS.........

We forgot to show you this bar of soap we got..We think it is just right for Petey..can the read what it says?????

It says underneath...Soap to promote moisturized skin,soft shiny coat,and a spicy clean scent that will drive the girls wild!!!!!!!

Don't forget tomorrow is Jackson's birthday and we are going to have Air Ruby fly around the Dogstar and we will wave(because he is recuperating and we have to be quiet) so make your reservations now, and then we are going to go to Eric's house only we don't think his mother knows this yet!!!!!!!!

WooHoo for Jax and how we let off steam(AT THE ARBORETUM!!)

Well,we have been like crazy people all day( hard to imagine I know) We kept bugging PL2 to go on the computer to see if there was an update on Jackson and PL2would say to PL1 I wonder if he is out of the intensive care and we were all driving each other crazy worrying about him. We are THRILLED to say that Jax IS OUT OF INTENSIVE CARE!!! WOOOOOOOOT!! Well we were so anxious before we heard this news we will show you how we all spent the day........



There is something called shopping therapy......Being dogs of PL1and2 we have become very good at it,so we all decided to go to our favorite place THE GIRLS!!!!!! and shop.........

We were TOTALLY OUT OF EVERYTHING so we got a HUGE HAUL........(please note the sweet potato bag please,need we say more?)Also check out the biodegradable doody bags......PSYCHEDELIC COLOURS!!!!! We will be the hit of the block!!!!!



This is one of the kids who OWNS THE STORE..OMG WOULDN"T YOU LOVE TO BE HER?????

I really didn't know how much longer I could just sit here BY THE BONE CAFETERIA.......


So we shopped till we dropped and then we decided that we HAD to drag PL2 back to the Arboretum(yep she hasn't been back since we saw Wiley Coyote) SO WE TOOK HER THERE!!!




We feel funny going without any of our DWB pals now!!!!We did ask them to put up a sign saying that the famed Lenny and Sophie had been here but we didn't see it yet... We went in the back entrance because we were going to do the woods part and the part where we could swim.........




I may not have my "E" but I can dig a mean tree.........





video
Even Archie got into the act...We had to get rid of this extra energy we had worrying about Jax....

video




video


Then we decided to go for a double dig.Now this often does not work because then we want each others holes and you will notice that the film got cut short because we were about to ahem GO AT IT..(his hole was better than mine.....)

video
Ha Ha!!! Look at Archie!!!! He snorted up so much dirt he was sputtering.....



This is the woods part.We have to say that PL1+2's heads looked like they were going to snap off because they kept looking to the left and right for WILEY the COYOTE....PL2 said she wished she had her suit of armor on but then she would have had trouble going on the trails.....(and I think she would have been hot too)



After all that hiking and all that digging we were ready for the next(and my favorite)part. swimming.This was like doing a little triathlons....shopping,hiking ,digging and swimming....




video


And then PL1 said he wanted to show Pl2 WHERE WE SAW THE COYOTE!! PL2 said she didn't really have to, and didn't we have to leave and go do something....BUT WE DRAGGED HER UP.....



When PL1 saw him he came out from the right....RIGHT HERE..........






And then he darted over to THIS SIDE WITH THE GOODS(a raccoon in his mouth)EWWWWWWWWWW(that was PL2)



Archie DID NOT have on the right attire(his cowboy boots,hat and 6 shooter) so he was standing there saying Come on out Mr Coyote,if you dare...MR COYOTE????oh he is going to come running now I AM SURE......Needless to say we did not see him( which we think is a good thing or she really would never come back)





SO now we are POOPED ,and we came home and read the wonderful news about our dear pal over the seas.....So before we crash ......raise your glasses in a champagne toast to our dear pal,the leader of the wirey clan,(and head of the substantial wires club also and KING of destuffing a stuffy)JACKSON!!!! PIP PIP HOORAY!! PIP PIP HOORAY!!!!! WE LOVE YA MAN!!!!!(and everyone keep on doing what you were doing to help speed up his healing time...)

Love,A very very happy A+A
