Chocolate Chip barks in agreement. We set off down the dirt path.
He races up to the base of a tree. “Whatdya see, boy?”
“Is there a squirrel up there?” I ask him.
Suddenly, Chocolate takes off down the path. I race to catch up with him.
He leads me to the base of a ginormous tree.
I sit down. Chocolate Chip tries to jump up on my lap. I look up at the tree. It’s perfect for climbing.
“I’m going to climb this tree!” I tell Chocolate.
I grip the base of the tree tightly. One, two, three!
I hoist myself up onto the branch above the base. Whoa!
I glance around for the next branch to climb up on.
I clamber upwards, not daring to look down.
Suddenly, I lose my footing on the branch. “Ahhhhh! Chocolate, heeeeeeelp!”
I tumble down onto the ground. “Owwwwwww.” Chocolate Chip comes over to sniff me and make sure I’m all right.
I stand up, checking for broken bones. I appear to be all right. “Let’s get back to camp, boy.”
Chocolate and I set off down the path. I’m not going to try tree-climbing again any time soon!
Did ya like it? Huh? Huh? HUH?
Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.
This is my last post with pictures I took using an iPad. I actually took these pictures back in late August, so there was no snow on the ground. Did you catch that?
There’s someone else who caught something in blog that shouldn’t have been there . . . Dimond, from worldofagdolls.blogspot.com! In my last photostory, Crystal’s hair was braided when she “woke up,” but not when she woke up for real. That’s because I did not plan those pictures very well. Anyway, congratulations, Dimond! Everyone, please check out her blog!
Also, kinda-sorta big announcement. I am leaving for vacation tomorrow morning (well, if 1 AM is morning). I will still be replying to comments and stuff, just not as often. I am so excited! Wish me luck!
