The Charlie Bravo Story

Weekly update…

Things happen pretty quickly around here, and updates sometimes don’t get the attention they deserve, or any at all for that matter, so here’s a few quickies:

Miss Ellie was doing great, and we were taking her to get a car top carrier for future trips when she began bucking and surging on the interstate. Thankfully, we were within a short distance of Zach’s apartment, so we limped over there. After a night’s rest, dad and I rode the motorcycle back over there to determine the problem, only to find that there now is no problem, which is scarier than finding the problem. Stay tuned.

I got a new phone on which to update my posts, an S7 Active, and what a beast it is; waterproof, shockproof, an absolutely fantastic camera, the perfect rig for a traveling dog such as myself. Now all I need is a journey on which to properly test it.

Despite dad’s valiant efforts at eradication, the hummingbirds are still flooding in and making themselves a nuisance. The yellow jackets have thinned a bit as dad has worn two flyswatters down to their wire-handled nubs; watching him flail around on the back porch like some kind of porcine samurai is well worth the price of admission.

Speaking of admission, go see “Hell or High Water”; dad did, not once but twice, and rates it five headshots out of five. Personally, I don’t care, as I would rather be doing than watching, but he’s old so I humor him.

Ricky is now Clyde S. Dale, and somehow doesn’t seem to be growing at a pace equal to his feet, which is a good thing as he would now be the size of a Trojan horse. His demeanor is remarkably like Stevie’s, but based on the sheer numbers at the Casa, we desperately need to find him a home; can’t keep rescuing if you don’t have the resources.

Leigh Pevreal had a great Charlie Bravo tip for a fellow reader who keeps missing posts, and stated it much more succinctly than I can, so I will ask her to do it again in the comments below.

And in an effort to raise some much needed fundage and make room for an upcoming new logo line, all items in the Charlie Bravo store will have free shipping through Labor Day, so don’t miss out on this chance to stock up.

BIG changes coming in the next couple of weeks, another adventure, maybe? Hmm? I see dad making preparations for something, but he ain’t saying, probably doesn’t want to jinx anything…

I can’t wait!!!

    for the bees, take a paper sack, stuff it with plastic Walmart bags, and hang it up, it detours the bees away from the area 🙂

    Did Miss Ellie foul her fuel pump?? Sounds like something that happened to me on one of my subaru’s wayyyyyyyyy back when! Driving fine, all of a sudden bucking and sputtering then died. Wouldn’t start back up initially, after she sat for a bit, fired up again. Got the fuel pump fixed and she was right as rain!

    Yep, you now go to the top of my feed!

    We all have our days. Miss Ellie no different. Days here getting shorter to remind us of what’s coming. Hope the horse finds his new home.

    That pup is going to be a big sweetheart! Meaning is a smaller sweet heart now……just clarifying that!

  12. Jody Hess-Franey

    What a sweet face! Someone is going to be very lucky to get him!

    I would think the sight of a porcine samurai wielding a fly swatter would be enough to permanently scare off the yellow jackets 🙂

    I thought Clyde had a new home?
