Raking With Mom

Mom asked me if I would hang out with her while she raked behind the lumber barn.   Sure, of course, mom!
 Dad put a new stone foot bridge across the brook for us so we could cross without getting our feets wet.  The metal one that we had before broke. This one is nice and solid, dad!
 Aren't the daffies pretty in front of the lumber barn?
There's Buster!  Do you see him in between the trees?
He's doing okay.  He spends time in the water with the other birds and he spends time on the shore, not far from the water. Thank you so much for all of your love and support.  We miss Gussie every single day. 
The Flintstone Barnacles and one of the Grey Lag geese.  We have 5 Grey Lag geese now. 
Margaret and Penny and one of the fatassloudmouths.   You never see Margaret without this fatbutt goose swimming right alongside her.  She adores Margaret!
Enough of the waterfowl.
Can you see that I have a leaf in my beard?  I'm resting on a wonderfully cool pile of leaves that mom raked just for me. 
I found lots of sticks to chew on.
And I discovered that skunk cabbage stinks and I like it.  Mom missed the picture but I roughed up the skunk cabbage and threw myself on top of it and rolled around on top of it like it was poo and I continued to lay there like a hussy with my Airelegs spread for all the world to see!  Skunk cabbage is really cool stuff!
Time for some playbows and tuckbuttruns!

Here I come, mom, ready or not!
I'll help you rake anytime, mom! I sure had fun!

So until next time.......

Love ya lots,


  1. Fatassloudmouths, huh. What a cool species name!

    We're glad Buster seems to be getting along. What would happen if you brought him a new pal??

    Wirey love,

    Jake and Just Harry

  2. You sure do know how to have fun miss Molly and we must say you have turned into one of the prettiest young ladies. Our dad says you remind him go his aire girl lala.

  3. Skunk cabbage sounds great. Were you all nice and stinky after your Pawsome roll about? Looks great at your pad with all the Spring plants and flowers. Have a marvelous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Me and Teka toy have found that Goose Poo, which is available at the lake at the U of R, is great to roll in.

    Problem is, sometimes muzzer is able to round up a gardener or mtc guy and we get squirted down before we are allowed in the car! But it is fun while it lasts right?

    Leaves are fun to play in, especially when they crackle!

  7. What a good girl you are, Molly! Your mom must be so happy to have such a happy girl with her while she was raking.

    So glad to hear that Buster is doing well; we hope he gets more friends soon.

  8. Glad to see that BUster is doing ok! Looks like you had a nice time snoopervising the raking!

    You rolled in SKUNK CABBAGE?? That would be Heavenly.

  11. You look so pretty with the daffodils. It will be a while before we can rake, things need to dry up a bit.

  12. We are sure mom really enjoys all your help with those leaves

  25. I was sadden to read about Gussie. Poor Buster.
    Your dillys are pretty. I have a couple of bulbs that have mutated, they no long have a cup but just crazy stumped ruffles in the center. They are not pretty at all.
    Thanks for being a friend

  27. Wow, Molly, you are quite helpful in the garden! I got to help trim some things the other day and it was very fun. Sadly, I didn't find anything stinky to roll in - but maybe next time!
    Zim said he just loves your birdie friends. So does Mom.
    I'd love to play bow with you!

  28. What fun you two had helping your Mom-we're sure she's grateful for your help!

  29. We have never encountered skunk cabbage before, but it sounds like totally awesome stuff! Abby knows all about rolling around like a shameless hussy however, so you two would be perfect together! :-)
