MY KIND OF BATH


Winter, the long winter has come and gone and not soon enough!
My "lady parts" issues kept me from dipping myself
in every pond, lake or puddle for a few weeks/months now.


But I'm feeling almost 100%,
so the canal was such a welcome surprise
for me and Mr. Orangie.


Clean , fresh, flowing lake water 
is the 'sweetest feeling' water
as it rinses over me
over and over again!


Automatically eliciting my massive DOODLE SHAKES ~~


while nibbling copious amounts of salad as I drip dry, sort of 


I'm ready for another dive into the water guys!
I'm ready!


Spring has arrived!
I've had my first bath 'au naturel' as
Jim covers up from the bugs 
that unfortunately for him
LOVE HIM
and 
NOT RON SO MUCH!!

  8. Well, Sophie, it seems this post was especially good at taking me along with you. I felt the water and enjoyed the shake and trotted down the road afterwards, only thinking how cool it would be to go right back in the water. Your dad sure takes amazing photos of you and your beloved environment!

    1. Some time I going to shove Ron & Jim into that water so they can really feel how I feel about swimming in lake water.

      I know they love it but them bugs are so annoying most times that Jim has to be covered up, Ron not so much!

      Glad you happened along this day, Carol!!

  9. Bugs love me, too. Trouble with lady parts and only men to dance attendance on you? I'm sorry. I guess it's all in the family, though. They are your dads. It's okay that they're men. Don't be embarrassed.

    Love,
    Janie

  11. Hi Y'all!

    Here at the shore we may have gators and snakes, but we have so many birds that bugs aren't much of a problem. In the mountains though, it's another story. The bugs drive my Human wild. They get Papa too, but not as much. I have three words to say to those who the bugs "drive crazy"..."Deep Woods Off". My Humans aren't wild about chemical repellents, but when it comes to bugs all rules go "out the window".

    Y'all hurry back now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

    1. When you are running for cover because the bugs have driven you stir-crazy ~~ well ~~ I completely understand ~~~ we use Muskol on our hats and it helps a lot! We have been very fortunate this year because of the cool weather ~~ bugs do not like cool weather ~~ YAY!!
