Three Things...

Three things on dis Monday:

Number One - VIVA ESPANA!!! Mom was sooooo happy when they won the World Cup! It was Spain's first time ever being in the final. You could see how much it meant to them. Mom was all choked up seeing her beloved Iker crying for joy when it was over, and the emotion on his face as he held the gold trophy over his head. What a moment! What a game! What a team!

Some highlight shots. Flying Iker:

Iker makes a huge save:

The winning goal by Iniesta!

Mom has watched dis video of Iker kissing his reporter girlfriend about 100 times dis morning. She keeps saying "awwwww..."

Congrats to the Dutch for their spectacular tournament as well.

And congrats to South Africa, for sharing your beautiful country wiff the world and being such incredible hosts!

The other two things are, the baffroom remodel is going well, but with an older house you always run into problems you didn't expect. But it's coming along and is a little over half way done. Some of you have asked if my pawrents were using the outside fur their baffroom like I do, but no. There is a small baffroom in the basement.

The Third thing is, I don't think Tank's plan to mail all the squirrels to the Squirrel Cage Jail here in town will work. The people in my town are completely crazy. They love their squirrels and the town is somewhat famous for them because a lot of them are black. A black squirrel is the town mascot. It's even against the law to harm or harass a black squirrel here. They would never agree to lock them up, even if the jail clearly says SQUIRREL on it! I'll write a separate post about it soon. From a dogs point of view, it's truly messed up.

Well, that's it fur now. Mom needs the computer back.

Cloud, you have my condolences. I did not know that you have to live in a town where a SQUIRREL is a mascot. I cannot believe the craziness! My squirrels are all gray. Maybe they won't mind locking those up?

Oh no! A squirrel mascot?! There's a town in Illionis that has white squirrels and they have the same rules. What is this world coming to?

Hi Cloud,
My mum can see why your mom spent so much time watching Spain defend it's goal area! She said what a sight to see when Spain won, and kept looking at the Spainish team celebrating long after the game was over!!!!! She also told me she liked watching the fireworks, and thought that South Africa did really well hosting the World Cup.

As for those pesky squirrel things - we don't have them in New Zealand, but if I lived where you are I'd be barking at them too.

Hmmm... this is quite the conundrum now, isn't it? So CB protects its squirrels. Gosh Cloud, I don't know what to say to you except why do you live in such a place?

Unfortunately, I shipped off a box with about a half dozen prisoners just this morning. Maybe you could put them (and the one Puddles sent) in your mom's car. Tell her to roll her window down next time she's driving I-80 and throw the boxes out. That should take care of the problem. Maybe she should do it in NE though.

We are not much into soccer, but you can see all the excitement in the photos. Congrats!

There is a town near us that has white squirrels. And they are most protective of the little tree rats too. (At the house, we only have the flying kind. They are not fair).

Handsome photo of you Cloud!
Congrats to Mom for backing the winning team. I hope she put a lot of Money on it!

We had one handsome black squirrel in our neighborhood but he has flown the coop, never shows up anymore. Just the gray guys is all that is left.

JacksDad said...

I'm very happy for your mom. We were out eating when Spain won and everyone seemed very happy!

Maxmom said...

What a wonderful time was had by all! I can't believe it is all over and our friends have gone home.
I watched the game too...and Iker...with interest! (Yep..I was supporting Spain!) I couldn't stop thinking about your mom and how happy she obviously was when that goal met its mark. Very cute video too.
Sending lotsaluv

Too bad about the girl friend - he is a cool-looking dude.

We don't know what will work for those pesky squirrels, they are almost indestructible.
