ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

Today, Tippy got to do one of her favorite things…..go for a ride in the truck.  We haven’t done this since Christmas of 2015, when the truck hesitated as I started across a 4 lane highway with a car coming.  That incident scared me, so I parked the truck until I could get it worked on.  I still haven’t had it serviced, but decided I needed to see how it was running so I could take it to the shop, eventually.  I charged the battery, and off we went, with my dad by the phone in case we had problems.  It ran like a charm and Tippy was very happy!

Mom, Stop taking pictures and let’s get this show on the road!

She likes to ride in the car, but loves riding in the truck.  I decided today it is because I relegate her to the back seat in the car, but she gets to sit “up front” in the truck, where she can see everything better.

I wasn’t able to get a picture of her which showed how truly happy she was.  She showed it, but, as I was driving, I couldn’t get that perfect picture.  We drove down by the river and back home.  No need to stop anywhere.  Riding is what she likes the best.  I imagine, for her, it is like watching a 3-D movie with smell-a-vision.

The title of this post is from The Sound of Music, of course, so here is what I think Tippy’s version of “My Favorite Things” would sound like :

Truck rides in summer and car rides in winter
Gravy on kibble and walks by the river
Chasing a squirrel up an oak tree in spring
These are a few of my favorite things.

Cuddles with mommy and soft, fuzzy blankets
Pumpkin and winter and treats in big baskets
Running around in big circles like rings
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the cat bites, when the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad.

I hope you all get to do some of your favorite things today!
