Brunhilda and Borris Wander Wisconsin


Welcome to our little world! Today, April Fools Day 2011, Miss Keetha is linking this little 'ole post up to the No Linky Party that Miss Anna sponsors over at Wit Behind the Ears.

We can BEARLY contain our excitement. And we ain't just FOOLIN' neither!!!

You may remember us from Miss Keetha's post yesterday. We are Brunhilda and Borris Bearsaltandpepper but you may call us Brunhilda and Borris Bearsaltandpepper.

First we have a bit of business from yesterday's post to take care of. Someone LAUGHED at us for our blatant and obvious use of scotch tape. To that we say, IT WORKS. Let he who has never imbibed in scotch (tape) be the only one to laugh.

Now, on with the story of our adventure.

Once we had our knapsacks all packed, we waited until Miss Keetha wasn't looking and slipped them in with her "stuff." Pretty clever that, or at least WE thought so.

She has so much stuff she'll never even see our tiny bit.

Then we went out onto the driveway for a few practice spins in our brand new wheels. Wow - - - they go FAST. Ma loved the breeze ruffling her fur. Sure beats standing around on a kitchen table waiting to "shake your booty."

At 2 AM we set out on our adventure FOR REAL.

First thing we had to learn to do was gas up our 4X4.

We don't quite "get" all the grumbling we hear from folks about the price of gas - - - it only cost us ten cents and we were good to go - - -

Until we saw FIRST PAW what it means to "play with the big boys."

Everything out there was SCARY. So - - -

We made a deal with fisherhubby that we would clean his windshield at each stop in exchange for the priviledge of riding - - - WITH OUR WHEELS - - - in his ridiculously oversized rig.

I think we got the short end of the stick - - - just look how dirty his truck is!!!

After that we hopped in fisherhubby's back seat and slept away the miles and the dark.

We awoke to a Wisconsin welcome - - - a very WET Wisconsin welcome.

We had to nix our idea of an al fresco breakfast.

Good thing WE aren't pets!!!

We tried our claws at a little jungle exploration.

Then it was off for a slide on the playground.

Kind of a "slip and slide" in the rain.

Then we read the morning paper.

Just what is it with these Wisconsin people and their pets????

We checked out the weather forecast.

Whew - - - looks like Miss Keetha and fisherhubby are going to drive us right out of the rain soon.

Next we read the vacation brochures.
There are A LOT of things to do and see in Wisconsin!!!

Back on the road again - - -
Every mile is bringing us closer to our Northwoods roots.

But Miss Keetha had OTHER plans - - -

She hijacked us
And the next thing we knew, we were at Lake Wazeecha on Red Sand Beach

We dipped our hind paws in the water.
It tickled.

Then we basked in the sun to warm up.

Somehow we felt very insignificant
In a sunny and sandy world.

We needed a drink of water before
We could head up north
To our day's hotel destination.

Adam helped us check into the Grand Stay in Eau Claire.
The Grand Stay is - - - - well - - - - GRAND!

We hurried up to our deluxe room

And burrowed our road weary bodies
Into our large and comfy bed.

We had sweet dreams of tomorrow
When we will arrive in our very own corner of the NORTHWOODS.

ahhhh! I agree with Gwen, I kept imagining people pulling up to get gas, but having to wait in line...

Your husband must be an awesome guy, y'all have fun together, I can tell.

My favorite thing, their pillows! Oh my!
