Mom and dad took me to the bark park twice over Thanksgiving. Once on the day after Thanksgiving and then our regular run on Sunday. I managed to chase their butts up and down that park for 4 round trips on Sunday. I was so tired at one point that I was almost foaming. Mom realized I needed some water and got out my new red folding bowl she got from Butchy & Snickers' mom's web site. It was perfect. I drank quite a bit so I was able to leave even more peemail. It was a little chilly last Sunday. Tonight it is supposed to get down to 20 degrees and tomorrow it will get up to about 37 degrees. It's a good thing mom has a new winter jacket and gloves. She has arfritis in her hands and they hurt badly when they get cold. Mom said that despite the cold tomorrow, we are planning on going to the bark park. She was at one of her doctor's last week and droped another 2 pounds. Man am I good or what! Maybe I should bill myself as a personal trainer? Even dad thinks he has lost some weight.
Now for the question. This is probably better answered by Meeshka but maybe someone else knows. Does your mom wear funny hats and gloves? Mom and Dad went to REI which specializes in outdoor clothings, camping gear, etc. She got 4 fleece hats with a Mountain Hardgear logo on the front. She started wearing that brand hat when her hair fell out during chemotherapy and has worn them ever since (she now has hair but keeps it short). She got them in slate, black, lite blue and orange. She is sitting with the blue one on her head right now and is wearing her green sleepy pants and yellow t-shirt (no fashion sense found in this house!). Dad is wearing an orange fleecy cap too (2nd fashion loser). Mom also got regular woolen gloves with funny grippers on the palms for wearing out doors. Is she planning on flinging herself to a tree to keep from falling down? She got a pair of woolen gloves with the fingertips cut off. The gloves weren't bloody so I have to assume that someone wasn't actually wearing the gloves when the tips were removed. She said she will take those to work as it sometimes get very cold in the building where she works, even with the little heater under her desk. She has one of the bigger offices where she works althou the building has no windows and is made of concrete blocks. The reason she has one of the bigger offices is a series of pipes runs thru her office. Everytime anyone flushes a toilet, uses the kitchen sink or waters the yard outside, a great sighing of the pipes in her office occurs. She keeps a radio on so she won't notice the flushing part.
Good Dog- I just hope no one actually SEES my parents with these things on! That would be sooo embarrasing.
