Chetspeak on Sunday

Iggy escaped? At last! Another breeze sprang up, much stronger than the one that was ruffling Mr. Parsons’s hair, and coming from the other direction, meaning behind me. Kind of strange, the inside of our house on Mesquite Road not usually being a windy place. I sat down to think about it and the wind died down just like that. A puzzling moment, but not important in the grand scheme, whatever that might mean. The important thing was Iggy, on the loose. Iggy’s my best pal: the fun we’ve shared! I can hardly remember. But all that was way back when, before the electric fence dude came around and made a sale to Mr. and Mrs. Parsons. Then came a mixed-up time where they couldn’t get it working right even though Bernie went over and straightened everything out more than once, and after that you never saw Iggy outside anymore, only spotted him at the window in their front hall, peering out. His constant high-pitched yip-yip-yip; his stubby sideways tail wag whenever he saw me, the fastest wag I knew, just a blur; and somehow Iggy could keep drooling at the same time! Did I miss him or what? So this was great news, unless I wasn’t getting something.

    Good morning. Happy Chetspeak Sunday and Happy Easter to those who celebrate it.

    Anyone hear from Rio? Wasn’t the house closing on the 10th?

    I am going to Kelly’s for Easter brunch and Lily’s 15th B-Day celebration.

    Rio et al are off on an adventure. All moves are adventurous.

    Re: Rio: I’ve heard zip, nada, zero. All is speculation.

    The town 300 miles south got 18 inches of wet snow last night. We got none. Still, snow is forecast for the next 2 nights.

    BMALS: Is your lettuce growing yet?

    Dawson, Onions are about 3″ tall, and lettuce, spinach, carrots, cilantro, and dill have all sprouted. Too cold to plant anything else till around May 1st, when the beans go in. Then tomatoes, peppers and squash later in May.

    Happy Easter to all! Mom has had a very busy holiday weekend, but she does feel like she got some things accomplished. Next weekend is the neighborhood yard sale and Mom is selling stuff with her neighbor. They are hoping that by combining it will attract more customers. Mom never does yard sales because her stuff isn’t what most customers are looking for. But who knows? Maybe the right buyer will come by.
