Mom is into Fall

Along with all of the RED that is here now there is ORANGE showing up.  Mom and I went to a store and bought these BIG flowers called Mums along with a whole bunch of these round orange things.  Mom bought three potted Mums and they filled up the back of the Ford.  There was hardly room for me.  I am proud to say I was able to keep my car sickness in check till we got home.  I was proud of myself but Mom still had to clean it up on the garage floor.  It was just a little bit though.   We went out two more times and once everything was fine but the other I left a deposit in the back of the Ford and this one was not so little.  Everyone keeps saying it will go away but so far it is still hanging on. 

Last weekend Mom, Ruthie and I put out decorations in the yard, then the house. She said we will have more to put our later this month for something called Halloween.   I think the flowers must be getting chilled with the temps getting low at night because I saw Dad putting blankets over them.  He is soooooo thoughtful  :)

Before it turned cool here in Nebraska Mom, Ruthie and I spent time down on the beach while Mom was cleaning the beach up for the winter.  Ruthie and I basically got to play because Mom said in a week or so we will be going to the hair stylist to get a GOOD wash down and hair trim.  After that no more swimming in the lake till next spring.   Mom said I will also start spending more time on those "Training Moments" since I won't have that wonderful lake smell anymore ?? 

After swimming Ruthie and I had to dry out on the deck so we got to have a picnic.  Dad fired up what he calls the Web and cooked steaks.  They sure smelled more appetizing then our Science Diet but it was still nice to have a picnic with Mom and Dad.   Mom said a thing called snow will be coming soon so we should enjoy our time outside.  I don't really remember snow but Mom said it is white and COLD. 

There has been more BIG RED FOOTBALL here at the house.   Lots and Lots of RED !!  Dad was really excited about one of the games and everything was good in Husker Land but this weekend Dad was a SAD camper.   Ruthie and I try to be supportive and stay at his feet but sometimes it is really hard because he is up and jumping and yelling at the TV.  After the game this weekend I had to comfort Dad :(  Dad will get a break this weekend since our Huskers don't play.

My grandpa Keuter had a Birthday so we had company over.  Ruthie and I got to see our cousins who live in Kansas City.  They have grown sooooo much but then they said I have grown.  We played with them out on the deck.  There were birthday balloons in the house and we played with them.  One of them is still up in the ceiling.   It is red so it goes with Husker Red. 

Mom has been kind of feeling under the weather the last couple of days.  She said something about having a cold/flu ??   It started on Friday and we all took long afternoon naps but Mom didn't feel a whole lot better on Game Day this Saturday.  Dad did talk Mom into walking around the lake but kept saying to her "hurry up" ??  I thought that was funny since I have never seen Mom "hurry up" outside before ??  I  thought Dad was talking to me and I did as he asked.   It was a private moment and Mom caught me in the act.

Mom and Dad watched the HUSKERS play on Saturday night but Mom started out watching the game in the bedroom with what she called her drink of choice.  Something called Ther-a flu.  I felt sorry for Mom so I spent time with her in the bedroom.   Dad kept coming in and out of the bedroom and finally talked Mom into coming in the living room.  There was HOT soup cooking in the crock pot for Mom - Dad said something like "feed a cold starve the flu" so I guess Mom had a cold.   It was also cold in the house.  Mom is waiting for the service guy to come and inspect the furnace before it is turned on. 

My sister Aunna hit a milestone this Sunday.  She turned what I heard was 210 years.  Now that is in doggie years so not sure what it is in human years.  Ruthie and I had to stay at home since they met my sister for brunch at a very fancy restaurant and Mom said it wasn't one of those "teaching moments"
