BEAR GOES LONG...
Good morning, gentle readers. We are calming down about having to move and feeling a bit more peaceful inside. Bear made a generous effort to cheer us up by doing his best imitation of a dromedary camel! He is unusually long for a guinea pig. He also has the ability to lie upon his flannel-covered platform while holding his big head up so HIGH that Edwin once remarked how much he resembled a sea-lion! Having been accidentally bitten by Bear, mom thinks he looks more like a walrus with long tusks. (She really means "vampire fangs" because I can read her mind but she never says things like that out loud for fear of hurting our feelings...Bear can be sensitive at times.)
Either way, we are all doing our best to cheer mom up about the move and make her laugh!
YumYum just announced that he is changing his name to "Ziggy Stardust" and instructed mom to refer to the rest of us as "The Spiders from Mars." She gave him a big piece of fresh, organic yellow pepper (we all got some) then asked if he felt he was getting enough Vitamin C. Guinea pigs cannot produce vitamin C so our slaves have to supplement our diets to keep us healthy.
We have fresh snow again this morning dusting the hills just beyond The Outback and heavy snow in the mountains.
But we are not "Spiders from Mars" so YumYum can have his pepper and EAT IT!
Yeah, Ziggy, I'm blogging about you again!
Sigh...that YumYum...such imagination! Am I right? Of course I am!
