September 28th, 2018

Hello everyone! How are you? I am okay! We have officially entered fall here in Wisconsin, so the weather is cooler. That makes for a much happier Mom, so I like it.

Mom found this insect at her not-retail job. It is a northern walking-stick. She is pretty far away from home—there aren’t a lot of trees around the building that she works. But isn’t cool? The Wikipedia article and another website Mom found mentioned that the bigger ones are probably the females. I like looking at insects—I don’t need to touch it! What do you all think?
Talk to you next week!

Hello everyone! How are you? I am okay, although Mom is kind of tired. There have been a lot of mosquitoes here in Wisconsin. Mom is getting bites all the time. For a while, they were even inside the house. (Mom thinks that she’s on their territory outside—but inside they ought to leave her alone!)

Mom went shopping the week before last and found something pretty cool! She found THREE of my brethren! She had just decided to stop at the thrift store just because, and it turned out to be a great decision! And they were only $2 a piece! These bears are more my size. Foster and the other bears Mom has found on ebay, are a bit bigger then me. Her mom told her that she had just worn me down enough that I was smaller than Foster, but it turns out that we came in two different sizes!

Mom says she doesn’t know what’s going to happen with the three new bears. She always wants backups in case something terrible happens to Foster or I, so they might go away. She doesn’t want to fall for another bear and worry about something happening to them. But they’re here, and that’s pretty cool.

Talk to you next week!

Hello everyone! How are you? I am okay. We have had a quiet week. On Monday, Mom, Caleb, and I went to Mom’s grandma’s funeral. She was 98 years old, so it wasn’t anything to be too sad about. I had to stay in the car when Mom and Caleb went inside the church for the service, but I helped her when she was in the car. Now we’re all going to have to help her write the thank you notes!

We did get some pretty flowers. Mom took pictures of them since they won’t last forever.

I think I like the lily the most. Mom went to a thrift store last week and found something that I want to share with you all! I’ll show you next week! I hope you have a great week!

September 7th, 2018

Hello everyone! How are you? I am okay. It was very humid for a while this past week, which made for an unhappy Mom. However, it seems like it’s over with for now, so everything is okay.

Adelaide and I got to sit outside on the porch with Mom and Oliver today. It was very nice. It was about 70 degrees and nice and sunny. We probably sat out there for two hours before we had to go in for supper. Do you like sitting outside? It’s certainly one of Oliver’s favorite things to do. What do you think?
Talk to you next week!
