“Hurry up, Boom! We’ve got things we need to be doing!” Mom patted her leg and took off at a good clip of a walk.
Huh?! Hurry! UP!? That only means one thing… we are going somewhere!
Yep, Mom lifted my up on the back of the four-wheeler, waited a spell. Dad was moving the tractor with the loader out of its shed, which is right behind where Mom and Dad park their four-wheelers.
Then Dad took off going one direction and Mom and I headed to the Back Forty!
Soon as we were up where we were going mom gave me the talk: (I get the talk EVERYTIME, okay…Mom go ahead, get it over with so I can go do my stuff) “Don’t roll in anything stinky or nasty, Boomer. Or you won’t get to sleep inside tonight! Also, come when I call or you hear my four-wheeler start…there will be a treat for you when we get back home.”
TREAT! I love TREATS, so I really, really, really, try hard to remember to come when mom calls or the four-wheeler starts. I really do TRY hard!!!!
So anyway, Mom started doing whatever it was she wanted to do up there and I took OFF! There so many things to sniff and smell!
Fun things to look upon and interesting animals….sniff, sniff….badger… porcupine—hum, don’t go that way…once quilled is enough for me. Let’s see the swamp is full of Red-winged blackbirds…Pheasants, doves, quails…ah so much to learn ab…..
HUH!!! Do I hear Mom calling? Maybe…I’ll go in a minute or so…sniff, sniff… OH! The four-wheeler is starting up…HURRY! I got to hurry or I won’t get a treat….HURRY!!!
WAIT MOM!! I’M COMING!!! WAIT!!!!
Humm, mom is back outside and has her purse… “Come on, Boom! Let’s go to town.”
TOWN! Oh, boy! TOWN!
Gosh, this has been a great day…and it isn’t even noon yet!
Wonder what the afternoon is going to bring!
