Long Distance Eating

Leave it to mom/dad to go out on their own unattended to find trouble.  It is the weekend, right?  They might as well have been wearing matching shirts that say, “Here comes Trouble 1 and Trouble 2.”  I’m just sayin’.

So mom/dad pulled themselves out of bed yesterday morning to go to our local Cracker Barrel restaurant – you know for a cozy breakfast.  This trip was anything but cozy mom found out.  They had gotten these new tables not too long ago.  Do you see anything wrong with the tables?  They look fine – all in perfect condition, no scratches or uneven legs.  But, look closer.  Mom said it felt like dad was sitting in another zip code away from her.  You see it now, right?

Mom told dad that it was hard for her to talk to him because she felt like she had to speak up volumes for him to hear.  Dad of course with his witless humor told mom to get some cups with string…. shakes my piggy head.  That’s my daddy always ready for a joke or three.

Have you ever been to a restaurant that the tables were this far out from one side to another?  And it was a four top – not a huge table for a big group.  But boy did mom say it felt like that for sure.

Mom’s Food Adventure

  I have to tell you my friends that I just ❤ it when mom/dad go out and bring back glorious pictures of the eating adventures.  What do I like even more than that?  When they bring me a piggy back which they DID NOT in this case – snorts.

Mom/dad went out recently and go dessert which they normally don’t order.  I asked mom why they did this time.  She said it was because their favorite Mexican restaurant has the best fried ice cream.  Yep, I said FRIED ICE CREAM.  Have you ever seen such a delectable creation in this picture?

Now, of course I had to ask mommy.  How does one make fried ice cream?  She says that this restaurant rolls frozen ice cream into cornflakes and then quick fries the creation for just a couple of minutes to brown the cornflakes.  Then it is garnished into this beautiful creation.  Have you ever tried fried ice cream?

Mom Did Something Unforgivable Yesterday!

Yesterday on Labor Day, mom proclaimed it a no electronic gadget kind of day.  That meant no iPhones, no IPads, no laptops and no computers.  We actually had to converse with each other face to face.

Have you tried to live life without any of those glorious gadgets for one day?!  It’s the pits!  We couldn’t check the television guide because it’s on mom’s iPhone.  She allowed me 15 minutes to post my Happy Labor Day post yesterday and that was it.  I was cut off after that.  I couldn’t talk to any of my cyber friends.  Do you know how hard that was?!  I was shaking with withdrawals by noon.  And poor daddy.  He couldn’t play any of his Angry Bird games on the iPad.  It was not good.  We were all wanting to reach out for these devices.  Even the purr things with whatever they have been up to lately were wanting to get on the laptop.  They couldn’t and they were complaining big time to mom but she wouldn’t cave.

At 1:00pm, mom went into the kitchen and started pulling things out of the big ice box.  I followed her because well you know there wasn’t anything else to do.  The next thing you knew, dad was in there too.  Mommy said we were going to cook out as in the great outdoors in my magical backyard.  What?!  Go outside and eat… with nature?  Mom, you’re taking this way too far!

So we all went outside in my magical backyard.  Mom and dad worked with the grill and after a while some amazing smells starting happening.  I walked around the back yard – my hooves even touched the grass and it was okay.  Okay because the grass had just been cut.  Even mom’s hooves were touching the grass when she was playing with me.  It was kind of… cool.  And you know what?  It was kind of fun rooting around with my snout.  Let’s not go crazy and say I want to do it everyday but it was kind of fun.  It wasn’t too hot and it smelled good out in nature…. of course the smell coming from the grill helped a lot.  We all even ate on the deck.  That’s right.  I said all.  Mom and dad were slipping me bites here/there of chips and little pieces of steak.  I even had some potato salad. Afterwards, me and mom played tag in the yard.  I would chase her and then she would chase me.  She said that she needed the exercise after eating.

After a withdrawal kind of morning from electronics, the day didn’t end all too bad.  We actually had a wonderful time together face to face without gadgets and emails or texts.  I would highly recommend it every once in a while – just don’t tell mom I said that.  I can’t let her know she’s right all of the time, right?

But there was ONE down side to being off of the computer yesterday.  I missed a very important date – my friend Easy had a birthday and turned four!  How many times do you turn four and I missed it?  I know mom turns 30 every year but it just seems different with us anipals you know.  So Easy, I hope you can forgive this little oinker and his blunder.  This is from the deepest parts of my piggy heart – HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY FRIEND!
