My Humans are Strange

The humans around here absolutely boggle my wee Lego mind sometimes. A couple of days ago they celebrated Thanksgiving. That involved spending half of the day cooking, forty-five minutes or so eating and a good part of the rest of the day groaning about having eaten too much. Since then Mrs. J has refused to cook at all and is making the rest survive on leftovers. This morning the humans and the Golden Turd took me out on a hike. I got to ride along as they spent a couple of hours climbing up a mountain and then climbing back down again. The fresh air was pleasant and the view was superlative. I’m just glad I didn’t have to walk on my own two feet. 3.6 miles is a long way for my short little legs. Back at home, I spent the afternoon relaxing with my feet up. The humans, at least a couple of them, decided that they hadn’t yet had enough fresh air and spent the afternoon working in the yard. It’s evening now, an anyone sensible would be sitting with a good book or a fun movie. My humans? They’re playing a rousing game of Wii Golf. There is no fresh air involved, and judging by the scores and the occasional growl they aren’t very good. I gotta admit, though, they do sound like they are enjoying themselves. What are you doing to relax this evening?

@Platespinner A good friend brought her five grandkids to stay once for a couple of days and one of them we called the 'little turd'. Not in her hearing of course. She was quite a monster but is now the most delightful young girl. I'm sure Nessie will undergo a similar transformation in time - if she lives long enough!

Oh that poor golden turd, just be glad Mrs J doesn't let the turd get hold of you, what a mess you'd be if that were to happen. So, you were too embarrassed to face the camera? I mean the shot was really good but you shoulda been grinning at us.

I was enjoying the view. Getting me to sit securely on the branch was a bit of a challenge since the wind was rather gusty. The first attempt resulted in me going over the side of 10 foot rock face. Fortunately, I didn't bounce the rest of the way down the mountain.
