We wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day!
We remember our wonderful
men, women, and canines
serving in our military, past and present.
We're furry grateful for your service.
We salute woo!And I declare this as "Moomorial Day", too. I'd like to thank everyone for their good vibes & wishes for me during my little toofer-adventure. I'm feeling back to normal, I even dragged Jack around in the yard, just for the fun of it! All kidding aside, he really is a great brofur, and was furry caring & protective when I was feeling under the weather. What a guy!
The peeps have been busy. They moved a whole lotta stones out of the ground in our play area to a big circle by the trees, and then mom put lots and lots of dirt in the circle. Dad's been digging and taking dirt out of a whole lot of holes in the ground. Weird, huh? The peeps say it will all make sense. In the meanwhile, we're not allowed to do zoomies thru the holey part of the yard. *sigh* humans can be soooo confusing! and that's today's View from the Moo!
Have a good Moomorial Day, everyone! Remember to share your cook-out with your bestest canine pals!
We almost furgot - today is Sarge's
PEEPS ON PARADE!
We'll tell woo a bit about our peeps-
Dad loves numbers. He thinks about them ALL the time. He even teaches numbers & math to new Naval cadets who will soon be heading off to the Naval Academy just as soon as he teaches them about some really cool advanced number stuff like calculus during their preparatory school. When he's not teaching, he plays Sodoku, and he is really really good at it. He also likes to build stuff and that requires using a lot of numbers too. Pretty much, if there are numbers involved, Dad (whose people name is Joseph) likes it.
Dad also gives good hugs. Jack loves ear skritches & hugs from dad.
Now Moo knows how to work the camera while she gets her hugs.About our other peep, Mom….
Mom is an artist and draws lots of different stuff for a living. When she has time, she likes to draw & paint other things, like animals, too. She's usually chained to the computer and tablet, but we pry her loose once a day fur a walk, plus we let her out to cook meals and drive us around & things like that. We keep her busy so she doesn't wander off & get into trouble.
Mom loves to take pictures of us, but that means she isn't actually in many pictures with us. Since its Memorial Day, she thought it would be nice to tell woo about her special Memorial Day 2 years ago. At Battleship Cove, in Ma., they have a PT boat museum. The PT boats were made of wood and used during & after WWII, now only a hand full still survive. Mom's Dad was a Motor Machinist (engine mechanic) on a PT Boat, and when he passed away many years ago, he donated all his photos & memorabilia to the newly founded PT Boat Museum- but that was before they documented the names of donors.
Today, people are not allowed up on the boats… unless you are either a former Navy PT Boat Sailor or the descendant of one. and as a furry special favor, she was allowed to raise the flag on a PT Boat on Memorial Day. The director had arranged a little ceremony, several retired Navy men stopped by too. They even played a recording of TAPS, and saluted, while she raised the flag in memory of her father, John N. It was furry touching, a LES moment fur sure.
Mom was finally able to get copies of her dad's service records, so that he is entered into the proper museum records in honor of his service as a crew member on the famous PT Boats.
