Happy Memorial Day Weekend, Everyone.
Well, this is it.
Here's my Entry for Peeps on Parade.
First Up: Dad
My dad was a law enforcement officer for 33 years! His human name is Stan. He's my inspiration as Blogville Chief of Police. He taught me everything I know. When he finished his career he was a Sergeant in the Sheriff's Department for my county! That's how I got my name! It's like calling me Junior. He's Big Sarge and I'm Little Sarge. Now, Dad is retired. He had to retire so he would have all day, every day for me.
Dad's biggest hobby/talent is hunting and fishing. He loves camping too. Especially if I go along!! He likes to hunt deer, turkey, bear, and mushrooms! YUMMY He's a great fisherman too.
Our favorite thing to do together is SWIM. We both love the water and he is pawesome to go swimmie with. He throws my water stick for me and we swim like fish!!
Something serious and special about Dad is that he once saved the life of a nine year old girl who got hurt on a playground. The dogtor said without him, she would have died.
Something funny and special about my dad is that he is an honest-to-goodness Cradle Robber! Pretty funny for a career law man! Yup, he stole Mom right from her cradle...well that's a slight exaggeration, but he is...are you ready for this...brace yourselves...are you sitting down...24 years older than her! BOL BWAR HAR HAR They have a lot of laughs about this! Another fascinating fact about Dad is that he breaks things. That's right, he breaks lots of things. Mostly tools...especially anything with a handle. Then he keeps them!! Our basement is full of shovel heads, rake handles, hoe pieces, etc.
So, there you go. That's my beloved DAD. He's the greatest peep ever!
Next up: Mom
My mom used to work in transporation doing things like dispatching trucks and being a safety manager. Her human name is Lori. She also worked in human resources, which I don't really pretend to understand. Now she works for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. My territory. She is a retirement counselor which means she helps people stop working so they have more time to devote to their pets! We can all appreciate that idea!! BOL
Her favorite hobby is reading, but she also loves to swim, camp and fish. She can play the flute, though she really hasn't done that too much since college. It hurts my ears something fierce, so I'm glad she sorta stopped! BOL BWAR HAR HAR
Our favorite thing to do together is walk. She likes to walk and I LOVE to walk...it's a twofer! She likes to walk really fast which is totally cool to me.
Something serious and special about Mom is that when she was really young, she was sort-of an apprentice to a veterinarian. She started in the 5th grade and spent many Saturdays and Summer days in the office and out in the field with a dogtor. She once saw him do mouth-to-mouth and save a baby lamb that was born not breathing.
Something funny and special about Mom is that she can whistle an olive. Yes, you read that right! She can take one of those big, black olives, put it up to her lips, blow, and make an actual whistle. I don't have the foggiest idea how she discovered this...or why. BOL It is kinda entertaining! She's also a closet Star Trek fan. Teeheeeheeee. Don't laugh. Some of your Peeps probably are too!
Anyway. There you go. The skinny on my Peeps. And to top it off, here are the pix:
