Chicken Pox & "Icky Yucky Goo"

Hi All--
Here's a fun post for a rainy Sunday.

   We went to visit The Cousins on Friday, and brought Buddy (our new dog) with us.  They live in the hills of northwestern CT-- it is beautiful up there.  Buddy got along splendidly with my sister's dogs.  They cavorted in the woods, and Buddy emerged looking like he had a case of the [green] chicken pox!

No fears, though-- he's made a speedy recovery!
Thankfully, the little burrs brushed out easily.

   My daughter stayed on for an overnight with The Cousins, and I spent some time weeding and pruning in the garden, while Sammy worked hard at creating mud puddles, which then evolved into "Icky, Yucky Goo".  He firmly instructed me that I was NOT allowed to use the hose until it got dark. 

I hope you all are enjoying the end of summer as much as we are!

oops, too many spelling mistakes... this is what it should look like -
Do you know what we called those burrs when I was wee? Sticky Willys! lol I used to gather them up on walks then use them to write cheeky notes and smiley faces on peoples backs :-)

When I read the title I thought someone had actually gotten the chicken pox... that would've really sucked especially during the summer! I'm glad it was just green dog pox!
