Monday Musings ~ July 10, 2023

Greetings fellow Monday warriors. Here’s hoping your weekend was full of tasty things and sans the racket from  ongoing Fourth of July revelers. Sheesh, with all the complaining about the economy, you’d think fireworks wouldn’t have been so prevalent this year. If you can explain it, I’d be interested to know since I certainly don’t get it.

Anyway, here’s a smile to start out your day. Hopefully the four-legged sect were beneficiaries of bungled flips over the weekend. Sure beats cowering in the back of a closet, doesn’t it?

Happy Monday. We’re hoping you have a ‘wagnificent’ week.

Monday Musings

Live, love, bark!  🐾

  1. I’m so grateful none of our pets mind the fireworks, especially since they go off over Hershey Park which is just a couple miles from us. Very loud!!! We had a dog who minded them a few dogs ago, and it was a bit of a blessing when she got pretty deaf.

    1. Ooh, excellent tip, Bean. Thanks for sharing. Doggos all over Blogville are cheering now.

      Your fur-iend,
      Elsa 🐾

    1. It’s gonna be a hot week in Denver. Summer has (unfortunately) arrived. I’m starting the countdown to autumn. Only 74 to go. Sigh. Hope your daughter remains safe. I heard about the record breaking storms in New England.

          1. Things have returned to relative normalcy but after going through the lower parts of the state yesterday on my way home, wow! They really got hit hard. Daughter and cats are doing great, thank you muchly for the wishes.

            1. Glad things are back to relative normal. Trying to adjust the current situation from what was can be quite the adjustment. Stay safe and keep smiling.

    1. Good point. Yeah the 5-second rule is pretty much non-existent at the Ranch, unless it’s a blueberry for some weird reason. None of my guys have ever liked blueberries. Strawberries or cantaloupe on the other hand are fair game.

  2. Unfortunately for the dogs there were no bungled flips, LOL! My husband is pretty conservative in his grilling techniques However, when food does hit the floor, we also invoke the 5 second rule and then wash off the dog hair.

  3. Ha-ha!!
    We think Dalton & Benji hope that kind of thing happens in our kitchen, as we are both a bit clumsy…sometimes!

    Years ago, MJF made off with a good sized hunk of Turkey when the Thanksgiving bird fell apart as we were taking it out of the roasting pan…oops…of course that was not the best thing for him…bu thankfully we had no ill effects! MJF learned fast, and after that he was always underfoot when food was being prepared, even salads!!LOL!

    1. These little Hoovers are such planners snd opportunists, aren’t they? 😁

    2. OLh gosh, that must have been one exciting Thanksgiving! Since my guys have realized I’ve been a vegetarian for probably close to 30 years, they are fixated on any cheese that hits the floor. No shred is every missed!

    1. You have a great week as well. Yeah, my dogs have always been shameless Hoovers.

    1. Funny how our pets don’t mind if something falls on the ground. They’re happy to ‘clean’ any spills up. 🤣

    1. They always manage to be in the worst spot possible. I think it’s deliberate on their part. Talk about schemers. 🥰

  4. You made me chuckle. I hope the flip gets bungled.

    I linked this post to Awww Mondays.

    Have a fabulous day and week. Scritches to Elsa and a hug to you. ♥

    1. That’s when the best scores happen. If nothing else. I often give them a taste just to get them out of the way of my tiny kitchen. LOL

  6. we were EXTREMELY lucky. Our fireworks were MUCH less this year. I think all of the jerks who set them off last year moved away. We only had them the night of the 4th and they weren’t bad. Roary and Levi aren’t bothered by them in the least anyway which is good!

    1. So glad you didn’t endure day after day and night like so many places (mine included). Elsa was mildly upset but a couple of boomers really made me jump. Fireworks trigger a PTSD response from a horrible fireworks accident when I was in my 30’s. Getting hit by a bottle rocket by a neighbor as a teen didn’t help either. I hate fireworks and pray we’re transition to drones and lasers sooner than later. 🤞🏼

    1. And they’re always single mindedly focused on scoring an errant treat. 😉

    1. Haha! Yeah, I can tell you from years of practice, ‘flipping’ veggie burgers never ends well. Luckily the 5 second rule gets invoked frequently. 😆

  7. We had some flipping on Saturday but no bungles (and no little beasties to capture them, if they had occured!)
    Happy Monday!
