Buzzing Back In!

Well howdy there! I haven't done a Fly post since April of 2016! A lot has happened since then. I don't live in Kentucky anymore! In July 2016, the family and I moved from our small town in Kentucky to a suburb of Tampa, Florida! We absolutely love it here! We've gone on so many adventures, seen so many awesome things and met so many amazing people.

My plan for this post was to take you on a ride through my life since my last fly post to now but it would be the longest post in the history of the world. So, I'm going to share some of what we've done in the past few months. These are in no particular order, but I'll caption them. Buckle might be fun!

Family fun day at Clearwater Beach
Cheering on the Tampa Bay Lightening in the Stanley Cup playoffs
98 Rock Fest was AWESOME!
Let's go Tampa Bay! Time to Ray's up!
I'm SOOO close to finishing school! Class of 2018!
Nothing says "Happy Father's Day" like celebrating at Hamburger Mary's!
WWE show for Christmas?! Happy kiddos!
Ringing in the New Year watching the Outback Bowl! Michigan vs. S. Carolina.
Everyone, meet Lola! No more minivans for us!
We're going on a cruise!!! Just kidding, we were at the aquarium.
Tampa Pride Parade! Kids had so much fun!
Lil Bit is so excited to see drag queens.
Meet Boomer, the best hound dog ever!
Meet Maui, the grumpiest cat in the world!
Celebrated 9 years with this guy (in the red) in September 2017. Got to meet was awesome!

I don't normally like to share the kids' names, but this is too cool to not share. Boy and Girl Child got to work on a MOVIE! It's the coolest thing to see their names on IMDb like this. Girl Child worked with the sound department while Boy Child did random production stuff and was an extra in the film. Can't wait to see the final product!

Okay, I think that's enough...see what my friends have for you?

The Steak Napper

It started out like a typical day. I was lounging around, soaking up the sun and just enjoying being lazy. A delicious smell started wafting toward me so I drifted over to where it came from. 

There they were, just as pretty as can be...steaks on the grill.
Thick, juicy steaks just sitting on the fire, getting that nice light char to them. They looked so good and I was so hungry, so I waited. I waited for the person cooking to leave. Then I snuck over the flowers and bushes, did a ninja roll to the side of the fence and waited.

He walked away, leaving those beautiful steaks to cook. I was worried they were gonna burn. I don't like mine burnt. So I crawled on my belly over to the grill, lifted the lid and took a steak.

It's okay, I was hungry.

In doing this, I knocked over the grill, setting the grass and picnic table on fire. I panicked, unsure what to do. I covered my face to hide my embarrassment. I'd caused a fire. This wasn't good.

The guy came out, yelling at his wife to call the fire department, frantically trying to put out the fire himself. He looked around, trying to figure out how the grill fell over. It was pretty sturdy. That's when he saw me.

Me, with part of the steak sitting in front of me, face covered.

He stomped over to me, his face red in anger. He lifted his hand, pointed a finger at me and yelled.

"Bad dog!! Very bad dog!!"

I think I might be in the dog house....

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words were "grill ~ flowers ~ burn ~ fire department ~ embarrassment"  and they were submitted by CognitiveScript.
