Our humans went over to our hu-grandparents again Saturday night which meant they got to see Ruby and Tartok, our cousins of The Thundering Herd Annex. Notice how you can’t actually see our hu-dad’s feet because of the smart camouflage socks that he is wearing. What an incredible fashion sense he has. But this post is not about his style, but about our cousin Ruby.
During the last week, she has put her counter surfing skills to great use by scoring a half loaf of bread (discovered by our hu-grandmother when she went to make sandwiches) and then three hamburger buns (what was used to make sandwiches when bread disappeared). With bread becoming an endangered species at The Annex, our humans – Siberian experienced that they are – played really, really dirty. They bought our hu-grandmother a present.
A Bread Box! The Horror!
Doesn’t the eye cut from Miss Ruby say it all
Dreaming of ways to beat the box
P.S. – For anyone traveling in the area, note that I-40 is closed due to a massive rock slide near the Tennessee / North Carolina border and probably will be closed for quite some time. The last time we had one of these slides, the road was closed for months. For all of the motel and tourist venues, this is particularly bad news because our area loses its Western route. Considering all of the struggles due to the economic challenges, we really feel for the small business owners who rely on the tourist trade. For those of you to the east side of us, a tremendous opportunity for you to visit with far less crowds and probably some bargains in the coming months.
Since we travel this stretch of interstate regularly, we are just thankful that we were not there at the time of the slide. Not at all unusual to see the evidence of slides along this particular stretch of road and there are few exits – most of which don’t go anywhere anyway. Well, us hikers like them, but anywhere ELSE.
You can read a newspaper article about the slide here .
