Mom's Back

Yeah - Mom' s back from her birding trip to the Outer Banks so we can get back to the computer now. Dad bought us a new computer while she was gone so we're pretty darn excited about that. Dad and I got along just fine while it was just the two of us guys - every day he told Mom that I was being a good boy other than squeezing through the tiniest opening to get under the deck and get dirty.

Today was great because I got to go swimming and ride in the boat for the very first time. I like the boat better than the car. Dad threw me in the lake at the end of a long rope so I started swimming for the other side. Dad reeled me in and then he did it a couple more times. After I got up to the side I smelled something tasty under the dock and just couldn't stop obsessing over it so we pushed off the boat and kept on exploring. Some fishermen asked if I was going skiing since I'm at the end of this long rope! Maybe next time.

Swimming was great but I got really tired so I've spent the rest of the day napping which is quite unusual for me. Mom only has to work four-day weeks in the summer time so we'll get to be together more than ever.

I'll close on a meloncholy note, we lost Great-Grandma yesterday. She was 87 years old and was just too tired to live any more. Mom and Dad and Aunt Barb and everyone are very sad but are glad she's in Heaven with Great-Grandpa, now. I only got to go to the nursing home once to see her but she gave Mom and Dad some good advice about me, like usual. She said as long as they kept taking me outside during the night I would keep wanting to get up. So they ignored me and we all slept through the night. She was a very, very smart lady.

Love, Bogie
