I had a not so good day here Thursday.
Apparently it is frowned upon, in this family, to cross one’s underground fence (in the back of the property, people, not in the front!) and tree a raccoon. And then get so wrapped up in the situation as to not be able to listen when your dad is very sternly calling you away.
Apparently it is frowned upon, in this family, to eat out of the kitty litter box (especially if they’re still upset about the raccoon thing). I don’t know how they find out. They always say, “Duke! You have gray gravel on your nose!” What does gray gravel have to do with anything?
Anyhow, now my mom tells me that I’m taking a blog break in April. She said that it had nothing to do with Thursday’s incident, but I’m not so sure. She says that she’s doing the April A to Z Challenge. What the heck is that? She says that she’s writing about Laura Ingalls Wilder. Well, I’ve heard that name around here. A lot. As long as I’ve been alive. If my mom and dad go away and it doesn’t have anything to do with their work then it has to do with Laura Ingalls Wilder. Now she’s going to take away my blogging privileges so she can write about her.
I guess I should accept it. I mean I’m not going anywhere and Laura Ingalls Wilder isn’t going anywhere. My mom keeps talking about going away this summer to LauraPalooza. She gets pretty excited sometimes too. My mom spends a lot of time on some website that is all about Laura Ingalls Wilder…some days too much time for my liking. I think it’s time for me to see what all the hype is about.

at the very end of this book, so I’ll keep reading.
My mom told me that there’s a read-along of this very book over at Beyond Little House (that place where she spends a lot of time). I thought maybe I could cover a chapter, but my mom said that they’re all taken. Darn. This book is pretty good!
