It’s been HOT in Portland, so off to the beach we went. Only to get there to find it was so cold and foggy we couldn’t even see the ocean!
‘What’s up with that’ I say?
Not to be deterred, the intrepid duo (that would be Mr. N and me) took off anyway–running, of course. After all, adventures can be made in any kind of weather.
Of course, that heated me up (who said it was cold??) and was I ever happy to find a streamlet flowing down to the ocean. Mr. N said I was nuts… But, after I found a ball. I said ‘who’s nuts now?’ After all, balls are next best to just about anything!
Mr. N thought it was HIS precious. WHAT??
I told Mom we had to write a B..A..D poem.
Why, she said.
Well…because Oz said so.
I banged out something on Mom’s puter and here it is–in all it’s badness.
(And I know you’re not.)
There is that sun
Shining down where I run.
Where is the water?
I continue to run.
My tongue hangs out
My nose seeks out…
I lap from the bowl
But know I need more.
I can sense
The river is near.
I look to my Mom
She says to go on
The river is near.
My tummy is wet
The river is cool.
I am NO FOOL.
And now I’m not hot!
That’s it, folks. What can I say???
And we had fun!
Mr. N and I had quite a conversation about where he’d sleep while here, so I took him on a tour. The first stop was the hammock in the back yard.While comfy (or so Mom says), I vetoed it. Even with his blankie supporting him, it wasn’t a good place to sleep. Who knows what night critters are around–I know I’d be skeered!
Continuing on, we moved inside. Mr. N likes to cuddle so I had to consider the options. Certainly the kitchen and living room were out. No one slept there. The kitties were in hiding, so they weren’t any help. They don’t even cuddle with me (as if…).
Mr. N checked out the bathroom, but I told him in no uncertain terms he couldn’t sleep in my special spot. So we moved on to the bedroom where Mom and Dad sleep. Mr. N thought this was it! I’ll take it, he said. Your ol’ tub is too hard for me anyway, Sage.
So, that was settled. Mr. N had a good night and so did I!And, yes, I sleep in there every night. For now…
