Washing Dirty Mud

Micah:  Does anyone have something special you're thankful for this week?

Marcus:  I do.

Micah:  What's that?

Marcus:  Dirt.  I'm thankful for dirt.

Micah:  We sure have enough of that in your dog pen.  But everyone already knows you love dirt.

Marcus:  They haven't seen the hole I dug.

Micah:  Speaking of the hole you dug, why did you dig it?

Marcus:  Because it feels so good to be one with the dirt.  I could live here if Jan would serve my meals outside.

Micah:  But the dog pen has been mud for a while now.

Marcus:  So?  What's a little mud between friends?

Micah:  I don't think Jan feels very friendly when you wipe off the mud on the furniture.

Marcus: Rolling in a mud puddle is pure bliss.

Micah:  I've seen the look on Jan's face when she plays ball with you and you kick mud at her.

Marcus:  I've heard humans love a good mud pack.

Micah: I don't think they use dirty mud in a mud pack.

Marcus:  Humans are so strange.  Washing the dirt out of mud would be like washing vegetables before eating.

Micah:  Then don't look now 'cause Jan is washing lettuce.

 We're joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop at Brian's Home.

    Among the things I am grateful for, Marcus, is having connected with you and the other farmers and Jan... you bring a smile to my face and that is a great service!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. Made momma smile! Marcus, that is some wisdom there!

  3. I am thankful for muddy Marcus!

  4. Marcu, you need to make Jan a mud pie! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  5. don't think you really addressed Micah's comment about WIPING MUD ON JAN'S FURNITURE!!! You skirted that really well. Have you ever thought that maybe you were related to a pig?

  6. We think we may need a little more mud in our lives!!!

  7. We hear mud is good for the skin

  8. Hmmm... Purrseidon and Saphera love digging and mud, too... Don't tell Marcus that their hole is big enough for them both to disappear in.

  9. There is nothing better than a dirt bath. At least that's what Odin and Domino say 😻

  10. We bet a nice hole would be a great place to stay cool in the summer.
    That looks like a very well dug hole. Hugs and nose kisses

  11. I like to roll in the sand, Marcus...and bring it in too😹Pawkisses for a wonderful Thankful Day☺❤

  14. No problem with a little mud.

  15. That looks like a comfy hole in the ground. It probably keeps your belly nice and cool. I can never understand why my humans get so upset about me tracking a little dirt in the house on my feet.

  16. Awwww Marcus that's wonderfully muddy mud!

  17. Marcus, we must be brothers,
    I love the mud too.
