You think I’m kidding, but I’m not. We had a couple of REALLY COLD days and nights – it even got into the thirties a time or two. But, not to worry. We’re now in the 70’s again, and I have to say it’s pretty darn perfect weather right now!
On Mackinac it’s 29 today, and for the next two weeks it looks as though 35 or 36 may be the high temp. All the photos below are compliments of Clark Bloswick except for two.
BODIE’S FIRST WRITING ASSIGNMENT
Hey! It’s me – Bodie. Mom said I could try and write a very short blog today.
So. Mom tried to explain it to me. She said a blog is where you tell someone out in space about something that is interesting to you or about something you like doing.
I got this. I like food – dog food (dry and canned), people food (when I can steal it), trash can food (dry and wet), street food (little pieces of paper, bugs, smashed water bottles, lizards (after Maddie kills them), rocks, twigs, dried up chewing gum, bird seed. You get the picture. Oh, and poop – but Mom says I don’t like it as much as Bear did – not yet anyway. I’ll have to work on that.
What else do I like?
What else. I LOVE dryer sheets! I stand in front of the dryer when Mom gets the clothes out, and we have a race to see who can spot the dryer sheet first. Mom usually wins because she can see INSIDE the dryer. I have to wait and see if mom doesn’t spot it. In that case it just falls out of the dryer on the floor, and I’m on it like a wolf. I’ve only managed to swallow two so far – because Mom is pretty good at prying my jaws apart. She was worried after I swallowed the first one, but something called “Google” told her they weren’t very dangerous if they’d already been through the dryer. And – like most things I swallow – it all came out ok in the end.
Mom is saying “that’s enough for the first time, Bodie”, so I will end for now. Mom just read what I wrote and said it looked like I was going to do pretty good as a blog writer – especially for a kid! I didn’t know she was serious though until she hugged me and said I was a good boy. I really, really, really like when she calls me “a good boy” – because that is usually followed by a treat, which is the BEST kind of dog food EVER!
Did I mention I like food?
Ok, ok, Mom. I’m stopping now!
Mom also says I’m a little too chatty at times.
Personal Note: I received the following notification from Feedspot Blog last week:
I hope some of you out there will know more about this than I do! When I opened the link, I learned that Bree’s Mackinac Island Blog was listed as the 14th most popular ISLAND blog among the thousands of island blogs Feedspot holds in their index. The rankings change by the week and are based on Google reputation and Google search ranking, influence and popularity on Facebook, twitter, and other social media sites, quality and consistency of posts, and Feedspot’s editorial team and expert review.
As I said, I don’t really know what any of that means, but I say a very big “Thank You” for the designation! And a huge thank you to all my readers who encourage me daily to keep writing!
Love you all, and God bless.
