Mom went NUTS...

OMD    All day Wednesday...   when we were having a Record Breaking 78 Degree F. Day...  WE were all outside...    
   Dad and Sarge's Dad Cleaned the leaves outta the rain spoutering gutters...  and Sarge Raced all around our Yard...   with US...  and   MOM... Went NUTS...

YEP... NUTTIER than NORMAL...  She sat on the Front Porch and   THWAPPED  Black Walnuts with a HAMMER... and then Picked out the nut meats..
    Two weeks ago she GATHERED the nuts... from the Library Parking Lot... where the Cars had driven over them about 87 times... which took the Green HULLS off them...   She brought home about 87 Bazillion NUTS...  and spread them in three Boxes to DRY...  every day she SHOOK them Around so they would dry Evenly...  
   THEN she Let Fly with the THWAPPING.... and Picking...  
    Now when she Finally FINISHED...making a racket like a woodpecker on on steroids picking the nut meat out... she put the pan full... in the Garage to FINISH Drying... THEN she will Freeze them to use in Cakes and Cookies and Pies and quick Breads...  

Butt I Digress.....

WE checked out the pawcedure....


 and decided that NUT WHACKING is NOT a fun activity fur a Beautiful day...

 Cussin Sarge agreed with us...
 Come ON Cussin....   let's go dig HOLES and other Fun  stuffs...  
And leave THIS to the NUT JOB MOM.    
     Pee S...  TODAY is mom's day/evening out...  Furst she goes to the Library fur COLORING fur the ANCIENTS .... and then after Supper she goes BACK to the Library fur her Write Away Writers... Group...  of  Kidlets that want to become better at Writing Thingys...       SOOOOO we won't be around much... If at all.....    WE have to take care of DAD while she is gone...  Just sayin.

OK, so we did understand that your mom is nuts right? And now she was nuts in a box. We think this election must be getting to her. We hope she gets some sanity at her coloring and writing groups. Did you tell her than me and Stanley are published authors? The magazine is out so we might get it framed with our pawprints on it.

Your Pals,

Murphy & Stanley

Our gram and her mom used to do that kind of stuffs and their fingers looked like they had been playing in the dirt all day but those black walnuts are sure good and well worth the effort!
