Today began as just an ordinary day.
At 6:30 AM I was, as usual, unceremoniously hustled from my bed and lead out the door for a walk. Did I mention that I don’t do mornings? Did I mention that I am not allowed to run freely in the yard during turtle season? Anyway, I did the “obligatory emission” (boy what we dogs have to do to please our people) and then raced back up the stairs to get in bed with Mom. The next thing I knew she was up an at ‘em and I just said “Sheesh” and rolled over to catch a few more Zzzzzzzzz.
I was napping and happier than a clam at high tide, until I once again was unceremoniously removed from the bed for “Sheet Day”. I tried to continue my nap on the floor on top of the old sheets, but once the fresh sheets were put on the bed, I thought it best to move on, for fear of ending up in the washer! It seems that the scuttlebutt is that all of the rushing around was because everyone was getting ready for the long holiday weekend. It may be the beginning of a holiday for some, but I have work to do! I always check my Classic Kippers account first, well once I am fully awake- about noon- then process necessary orders, after that, I respond to my fan mail and then check my blog stats. Some days are busier than others and some days are record setting – like today! My blog stats show that I have a new readers from three new countries!
and Oman is the 61st country from where my blog is being read!
Truthfully, if you include our great country, the good ol’ USA, from where most of my readers hail, that makes 62! That’s right, people from- SIXTY TWO countries are reading Classic Kippers!
Below is a map which shows my reader coverage and a list of countries.
But, the highlight of my day was a successful day of turtling. The pièce de résistance was nabbing box turtle number THIRTY THREE,
I AM turtleman!
Happy Labor Day all and be safe!
Love, licks and woof, woof AROOS!!!!
