I Blame the Heat!!!

This is us all happy last week, before our electricity went out...

We are all happy, dad is looking quite handsome, Annie has a big smile on her face, and Snickers is being scratched on his butt - he loves that.

Then the electricity went out...

Then it got hot...


It went on for EIGHT HOURS!!! It was 108 degrees in our backyard and it was at least 90 degrees in the house. It made for very grumpy parents and pooches.

After eight hours the electricity came back on and we could hear the angels sing. We all breathed a sigh of relief, we would sleep in air conditioning - hooray.

Then the next day, the electricity went out again...

and it got hot Hot HOT!!! 108 on the back porch again! Grumpy pooches and parents AGAIN!

Nine hours later the electricity came back on and the angels sang. Annie howled for joy, Snickers barked, and I went to give the air conditioning gods my hedgie and squishy as thanks.

I said, "Oh air conditioning gods. You know I love my hedgie and squishy ball, but I love air conditioning more. I give to you, my babies, a part of myself. I give to you hedgie and squishy. They have given me much joy and I want you, oh air conditioning gods, to enjoy them. I lift my paws to you in thanks".

Yes, yes I did say that.

So now things are back to normal around here and we couldn't be happier. So now I can carry on with telling you about our favorite foods here at the headquarters of Boomfreakah...

River my pal you wanted to know what my five favorite foods are - here you go.

Pumpkin (really, it's like an addiction)
Breakfast burritos!

I should explain that once a week mom and dad get breakfast burritos for dinner and mom can't eat a whole one so once a week we get the leftovers. Imagine, cheese, bacon, potatoes, all wrapped up in tortilla goodness.

Now mom has very high cholesterol so she can't eat from her list of favorite foods, but if she could, this is what she should have every freakin day!!!!

Chocolate cake
Strawberry Pop Tarts
Cheetos Puffs
Oreo Cookies
Starbucks Mocha Frappachinos

She shouldn't be having breakfast burritos either but it's just once a week and she's good the rest of the time so I will cut her some slack. For now.
