October 20th, 2017

Hello everyone! How are you? Mom and I are going to work on my blog entry and her family tree until her headache goes away.
2017-10-18 12.47.31
Things have been pretty quite around here. The weather has been nice, so we have been spending a lot of time sitting outside on the porch with Oliver and Graham. It was almost 70 degrees Fahrenheit today! It’s supposed to get a little colder next week though. There won’t be as much wandering around outside for Graham and Mom when it’s only 50 degrees.
Are you looking forward to Halloween? I love all the colors! I also like the black cats! I don’t think they’re scary at all. Are you going to dress up for Halloween? This year maybe Graham will go trick-or-treating and I can go with!
I hope you have a great week!

October 13th, 2017

Hello, everyone! How are you? I am writing this on Thursday—and I totally forgot that it was going to be Friday the 13th today! I wish we had something superstitious to talk about! (Sometimes, Mom is not a lot of fun—she thinks superstitions are silly. I think they’re harmless!)
We are watching Bob Ross now. Mom’s a bit obsessed, and I’m all for making Mom happy. She found magnets at Five Below on Wednesday. Who would’ve thought there would be Bob Ross magnets?!

I’m currently trying to convince Mom that since she’s watched all these Bob Ross shows that she ought to try to paint. She says that she probably won’t be any good at it—and I say that if Bob Ross says you can, you ought to try! What do you all think?
Talk to you next week!

Hello everyone! How are you? I’m okay. Mom is pretty tired, so I’m afraid this will be kind of short this week. She’s the typist—I don’t want to be up all night typing this letter by letter! (I can type, but it’s definitely a long process!)
2017-10-02 15.50.52
Mom recently signed up for a genealogy website called Geni. It’s a world family tree. You can figure out how you’re related to famous and historical people. Mom is distantly related to Charles Darwin, David Bowie, and a gentleman who served in King Henry the VIII’s court (he got beheaded!). Mom and I would love to know if any of you were on Geni, and we could be connected!
I hope you’re all having a great day! Talk to you soon!

Hello everyone! How are you? I am okay. Things have been pretty quiet around here, but that’s a good thing, I think.
Fall has arrived in Wisconsin. All the trees are changing colors!
2017-09-27 14.06.00
Mom took the nephew out to walk around yesterday. He loves the leaves! (He also loves making a mess!)
2017-09-27 14.05.49
I like fall. It’s a lot cooler! I also like the colors that the leaves change to. Mom says that they change to colors that match me!
I’m tired, so I think I’m going to convince Mom and Oliver to go to bed. I hope you all have a great week!

September 22nd, 2017

Hello everyone! How are you? I’m okay. Mom got transferred back to the embroidery department on Monday at the not-retail job, so that’s some new stuff for her to deal with.
2017-09-17 15.20.36
The weather has been nice for the past few days. Yesterday, Milton, Foster, and I spent some time on the porch with Mom. She took pictures of some of her new miniatures, and we took in the scenery! It’s a very comfy bench!
2017-09-13 13.29.44
Oliver says hello. He likes this weather too. He helped Mom with her picture taking. He is very good at supervising!
I hope you’re all having a great week!

Hello, everyone! How are you? I’m okay. It’s been pretty quiet around here. The most interesting thing that has happened this week is that Mom bought some rement from her retail job. (Mom loves tiny things!) These new sets are Rilakkuma themed. He is a teddy bear!
2017-09-12 17.16.50
There are eight different sets. Mom bought two. She wants to buy more, but she has to wait for them to come back in.
2017-09-12 17.12.10
Do any of you collect tiny things? We aren’t too picky around here—Mom has lots of tiny things! Talk to you next week!

September 8th, 2017

Hello! How is everyone!? My mom went to Goodwill on Wednesday and found something for our tiny family! It’s a new dollhouse. There’s a long story about the other one, so this is a great thing! It’s very tiny—Mom says that her big adult hands don’t exactly fit, but the BJD family thinks it’s pretty cool anyways! It only cost $25!
2017-09-06 16.00.30
Here it is. Mom says that it has a definite 1970s flair. It came with a bunch of furniture. We had some of our own too.
2017-09-06 19.36.16
Mom and the BJD family have decided that it is a cabin. Cabins can be small. (Although Mom says she would hope that they have windows, but alas!)
2017-09-06 19.39.51
Mom said that she has to get them some more kitchen stuff (Mostly a sink!)! I’m sure we’ll post more pictures soon. (I wonder if they make a house that’s my size? Maybe AG sized? Hm.) Talk to you next week!

September 1st, 2017

Hello everyone! How are you? We’re okay here. I’m very glad to be living in Wisconsin where there aren’t any hurricanes or rain from hurricanes. It rains plenty here, but not that much! (We get tornados and blizzards, although not at the same time.)
Mom discovered yesterday that one of her favorite internet dogs passed away. His name was Chet Baker, and he was the reason that Mom fell in love with Boston terriers.
So in order to make her feel a bit better, I thought we would post some pictures of Oliver. He’s Mom’s buddy like I am.
2017-06-30 15.09.18
He’s a lot louder then me though. Mom says that Oliver likes to make his opinion known. Loudly. Often.
2017-08-28 18.22.13
But he’s a pretty good dog, and doesn’t hurt my friends and I. I know there are a lot of dogs who will hurt any plushie—Oliver somehow realizes which ones are Mom’s and which ones are his.
I hope you all have a good day. I’m going to work on cheering Mom up!

Good afternoon, everybody! How are you? I’m okay. On Wednesday (the day that we are writing this) Mom went out to supper with her mom for Grandma’s birthday. She says she ate way too much food and is ready for a nap. But she works Thursday night at the bookstore, so we have to write our entry tonight!
For you of my readers who live in the US, did any of you see the eclipse? Mom’s work let her out for ten minutes when it was happening. She mostly just saw clouds.
2017-08-21 13.13.57
She told me that she did see it for brief second when she looked up to find it, but when she put her eclipse glasses on to see it again, the clouds had moved. I wish she could’ve gotten a better picture!
I hope you all have a great week! I’ll talk to you later!

Hello everyone! How are things? I am okay. Mom, Oliver, Graham, and I went for a walk today! We walked down the road on a walking path. Graham liked it a lot, but Oliver got too hot. 2017-08-16 12.16.38
Graham likes these walks. He just seems to like to watch.
2017-08-16 12.16.41
I get to sit in the bottom of the stroller. Mom said I didn’t look very happy in this picture, but I told her that I was perfectly fine! I could see all sorts of things! Mom stopped to take pictures of wildflowers.
2017-08-16 11.58.49
Do any of you go for walks? I was really excited when Mom said I could go with!
Talk to you next week!

Hello everyone! How are you? I’m okay. Mom had a long day at work, so we’re going to keep this pretty short.
2017-08-07 17.29.55
Mom has found a new little thing to collect. They’re called MiniMixieQs. I think they look like tiny Funko Pop! Mom can buy them at her retail job! We also got a lot on ebay. Each of them have a name. I like them because they’re so tiny!

It turns out that this is my 400th post! Who would have thought! Four hundred posts!

Mom says it is time to go to bed. I will get her to write our post a little earlier next week. I hope you all have a good day!

A few days ago, Mom discovered that the owie on one of my paws got a lot worse. She’s decided that he has to take care of it herself. We spent a little time browsing the internet for some new corduroy for my paw pads, and we were wondering if anyone knew if there’s any way to look up corduroy fabric by the space between the lines, or the thickness of the lines.
This is Foster’s paw. This is the kind of corduroy we would need to match mine. Mine is injured near the top.
Mom doesn’t want to replace my whole paw pad though. She says that I could have just a patch, and it could really be any color I wanted. It would sort of be like a band aid! What do you all think? Should it be brown like my paw pads? Purple? Blue?
I hope everyone is having a good day! Talk to you soon!

Hello everyone! How are you? Things have been pretty quiet around here. The weather has been all right, so we have spent some time outside on the porch.
tn_2017-06-20 Oliver
Oliver, the dog, really likes sitting outside on the porch. He likes to look around and guard his territory.
2017-07-26 18.19.53
I like to sit on the porch and watch the birds. Sometimes I see blue jays. They’re one of my favorite birds. They are very smart. Do you like any birds? We get all sorts of birds around our house. Mom’s parents really like feeding the birds, so it encourages them to come and eat!
2017-07-19 06.30.11-2
Mom bought me a new shirt. The old BAB one got too old looking for her tastes! You really can’t tell, but this one has dinosaurs on it!
I hope you’re all having a great day! Talk to you later!

Mom and I spent the afternoon and evening after she got done with work bringing her sister and nephew home. We are very tired, and Mom still has to go to work in the morning.
On Facebook, Mom noticed that one of our favorite dollhouse/miniature websites had all sorts of tiny glass animals! So Mom picked out some and ordered them.
Blogo seems to only let us share one of them. I will share more next week! I have to convince Mom to go to bed earlier so she can stay awake when we need to post!
This one is a pink flamingo. Mom and I decided it is more of a mauve flamingo.

Mom says that she is too tired and cranky to go downstairs to get the computer and post this via our usual blogging platform. I did a little googling, and found an app called Blogo. I hope this turns out to be a good app for the ipad. (It doesn't have spell check though?!)
Mom took this picture last night. Isn't kind of foreboding? It's actaully just the sun setting behind some clouds. I like clouds. Have any of you flown through clouds? It is definitely one of my wishes! I wonder if you could touch a cloud? Obviously, you probably would need a space suit or something or you would not be able to breathe! What do you think?

Hallo! How is everybody? I had a pretty quiet week! I thought I would share some more pictures from the zoo.
2017-06-26 19.16.52
This is a screech owl. It turns out that there are a lot of different kinds of screech owls. I like looking up Wikipedia articles on the things I post, and it turns out that there’s over twenty different kinds! Mom said she didn’t know if he or she was angry that she took the picture or just surprised.
2017-06-26 10.37.10
These are two giant Flemish rabbits. Mom thought that maybe some times you could pet them. (There weren’t any employees in the children’s zoo area when they were there.) Mom and Grandma have decided that they need to bring Graham to the zoo at the end of the road so he can pet animals!
It’s time to work on Mom’s daily stuff, so I have to stop here. I hope you’re all having a great day!

Hallo! How is everyone!? Things are all right around here. This past week was Mom’s birthday. She took her nephew and some of her friends to the zoo in Green Bay. It’s called the NEW Zoo. She decided to do something called a wild encounter with the giraffes.
2017-06-26 10.13.38
These are the giraffes. They were very friendly.
2017-06-26 10.15.02
Even Graham fed them! Aren’t they huge! Mom was impressed how big they were when you were up close! Look how big his head is!
2017-06-26 10.02.18
They were very friendly, and it made Mom a happy camper!
2017-06-26 11.04.10
They also walked around the zoo. It was kind of cold and windy.
2017-06-26 11.45.44
One of the peacocks was still willing to show off his fancy feathers.
Mom had a lot of fun, which is important for a birthday! Do any of you go to a zoo? We like going to zoos?

Mom and Caleb went to a park in Oshkosh for one of Mom’s work things. It had a little zoo!
2017-06-22 14.16.34
Mom’s sister works for the same company, so they wandered around together! It was sort of raining, but not too bad. I think some of the animals didn’t like the rain.
2017-06-22 14.29.34
Look at this fine fellow. He talked to the little kids that were in the park. They gobbled right back at him.
2017-06-22 14.29.24
Mom’s brother-in-law brought Graham. (He had to pick Sam up anyways!) He didn’t really seem to be interested in the animals, just walking around and playing in the mud!
2017-06-22 14.35.53
Mom was hoping for a petting zoo, but there wasn’t one. The corn feeding dispensers were empty near the animals too.
We love animals, so this was kind of fun. Mom even got paid to hang out! She says that she’ll take the rest of us someday! I would like to look at the lake.
Have any of you been to a zoo? I think I would like to go!
