Blue fingers are not food.

Taylor came to visit me today.  I don’t know what happened to her, but the tips of all her fingers turned a very shiny blue color.  I have never seen that.  I couldn’t stop looking at them.  I waited until she was very still and then it put my tongue on one of them.  They are not food!  Weird.

One thing about Taylor.  She is very comfortable to sit on.  Her hair is very golden.  Next time she comes over, I’m going to taste it.  Maybe it’s food.

Guard’n the Garden – again!

Today was probably my busiest day ever!  I started running amok from the time I got up until my nap.  After my nap I still had a lot to do.  A dragon’s work is never done.

Mommy ran amok with me.  She logged out of work this morning and we started right on the garden.  When it got too hot, we came in and started doing the floors.  Then I had a nap, and got right up and had oodles of dust bunnies to chase.  I got most of them.  We went back outside and finished gardening.  Actually, I mostly ate everything that was over 4 inches high.

Busy, busy, busy.
Busy, busy, busy.

 

Buffet means food

Mommy told me that on Saturday I could have a buffet.  I didn’t have a clue what a buffet was and I worried about it for 4 days.  I wondered if it was a trip, or a pet or if it hurt.

So today, Mommy said it was buffet time and she picked me up and took me outside.  I was so nervous I tried to claw my way back to the sofa.  She put me down in the middle of all the weasel dirt that we made a month ago.  Except, it wasn’t just weasel dirt.  There was food coming out of it, all over the place!!!

I ate and ate and ran to the next one and ate some more.  My tummy was full and everything tasted so good.  When I couldn’t eat another bite, I got good and comfortable on the rocks and almost fell asleep.  Mommy woke me up and told me that my buffet was over for the day, she took me inside and gave me a bath.  So, a buffet is food with oodles of choices.  I like buffets.  So, basically, the difference between buffet and dinner is that dinner comes on a plate and with a buffet you get to eat it while it comes out of the ground.  I need a dictionary.

Pterodactyl in my dining room!!!

There is a great big Pterodactyl in my house!  I want to eat it!  And I will.

Mommy said it is a dragonfly and she is trying to get it to go outside.

Pterodactyl Watch

I know for a fact that it is not a dragonfly.  I am a dragon and I can’t fly.  If any dragon in the whole wide world could fly it would be me because I am extraordinary and I work very hard at doing everything.  I tried to fly about a year ago and I had to go to the Exotic Animal Hospital in Tempe, AZ not once but twice.  That is why I have a hard time with one of my legs.  So dragons not only don’t fly, but we don’t even have wings.

I looked in Google to make sure I identified this tasty (I hope) creature.  I typed in flying, long thin body, very long wings and delicious.  It came up with Pterodactyl, so that is what it is.

We need to catch it right away before I become friends with it.  I can’t eat my friends.  It has been living in our dining room ceiling fan for almost 2 days.  I stay really still and it comes out of the ceiling fan and start flying around, but I can’t seem to get near it.  If nothing else – it is 93% fascinating and 7% annoying.

 

Trying to catch this Pterodactyl requires more patience than I thought.  It better be delicious.

Earth-shattering Revelation!

I just learned where food comes from.  Brace yourself:  It comes out of the dirt!  I’m not joking! Mommy took me outside to see the long skinny buckets that she filled with dirt last month.  There were green things coming out of them!  Can you believe it???

Then she picked me up and put me in the dirt bucket and let me eat as much as I wanted.  It is so yummy.  There were white flowers all over the place and I ate them all!!!!!   No matter how much I ate, there was more everywhere I looked.  Buckets and buckets of food.  After I eat all the tops off one bucket, I go to the next one and eat more.

I wonder if everyone knows that food comes right out of a dirt bucket.  And Mommy makes such a big deal about turning on the oven during the summer.
