Part πŸŽ‰275πŸŽ‰ ~ The Adventures of King Ben & Zeus the Big Dumb Dog

If you missed the start of this series, you can find it here. A lot of things will be the same or very similar.

LOOK AT THAT… 275 CONSECUTIVE DAYS OF CASA CUCKOO MADNESS… Thank you for joining our mad, bad, lazy and crazy Adventures! The Adventures continue…

Last night I did as I wrote and opened the side door so I could observe the darkening of the sky as the Sun set, from the comfort of my bed. I went out and took a few pictures while Ben played with his chalk and Daughter watched her laptop and cooked a half pizza for Ben’s dinner.

In the last picture you can see the Moon in the upper left, and Jupiter with Saturn in the lower right. Only a few more days until they appear to be joined.

The rest of the night continued to be mellow. Ben ate, bathed and went to bed. Daughter went to her room. I did the Things and Stuff, nuked some food, ate the food, took drugs and actually READ an entire chapter and part of a second in Paula’s book “Ghosted” before the meds and Food Coma knocked me out… around 11:15pm.

I woke up a few times but went right back to sleep… until around 4:45am when I woke for good. Nature was calling and there was no denying or ignoring that call. And since I was awake, I took some pictures. Sunrise was just as Meh as sunset had been last night. Venus was pretty. I played around with the “Pro” setting vs the “Photo” setting, took some pictures through the screen in the bathroom window, through the kitchen window, and braved the 38Β°F (3Β°C) outside.

Ben didn’t wake up until 8am. He goofed in his room then made a run for the baΓ±o. He was Mr SpamaTaz until his meds kicked in. Daughter came and got him and took him to the living room at 8:30am. I stayed snuggled in my bed for a while, dozing and relaxing.

Ben came and Bounced me again at 10:45am to tell me he needed new chalk. He said it in that tone that always causes me to feel anxious. Like it’s an emergency. I don’t know how he does that, achieves that perfect tone that makes my nerves hum like a tuning fork, but DANG! I don’t like it. I got the last box of chalk for him. Then I had to clean up all the old chalk he’d dumped everywhere. Ugh!

Daughter ordered food from KFC and I gave it a pass. Wasn’t feeling the fried chicken vibe. Younger texted me about her dog. Apparently Partner made some kind of non-refundable plans for Younger’s birthday, which was the 18th. Neither of them are having symptoms, so even though they haven’t gotten their test results, Younger wants to go ahead and do whatever. I guess Partner didn’t make plans for their dog though. (headache inducing eye-roll)

The tentative plan is for them to drop the dog off at my house after Ben and Zeus are in bed. Their dog, Gigi, can stay in Older Daughter’s room (she’ll be working ) so Sophie Cat can come inside for the night. I’d have to take GiGi with me and Ben to pick Older up from work in the morning and it will probably be insanity with both dogs here, but I love both of my daughters and I do things to try to make them happy.

Younger texted me back when I was taking the Sciencey pictures… only three more days til Solstice… and said she would come around 6pm, wait in the car til we left, then bring Gigi in and introduce her to Zeus, then put her in Older’s room and hopefully getting Zeus to go to bedtime with Ben after we get home won’t be a problem. We’ll see.

It’s getting close to sunset time. Then it will be time to get Ben ready to Drive Miss Daisy. He’s been in a fairly good mood today so I don’t anticipate any problems. Daughter ordered him some popcorn chicken and fries from KFC so that’s what he’s eating. Easy peasy!

I’ve been hearing this on the radio and really liked it. I finally remembered to Goigle it and now I can share it. Hope you like it too.

Trampoline – SHAED

Thank you for sharing our Two hundred seventy-fifth Adventure! You all deserve awards or medals or something. I gotta be here, I live at Casa Cuckoo, but you all choose to come by, and I totally appreciate it! I’ll let you know how it goes with the granddog, Gigi tomorrow. It will be fine or it will be madness… but how is that different from any other day here? Β‘Hasta maΓ±ana!

HUGS!

    1. Yes, I already ordered more chalk. No idea when it will get here, but I did see the smallest boxes at the grocery store last time I was there, so I might grab 1 or 2 the next time I have to go. He goes through a lot of chalk, but he uses it, soooπŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

      The granddog is a good girl. She’s just needy like Zeus. She cries when she’s by herself. If I cant get her to settle, I may have to let her sleep with me. Sophie wont like it, but it wont be the first time she was outside most of the night☹ she’s just skittish πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ’•πŸ¦‹πŸ¦œπŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸ§ΈπŸŒˆ

    1. I cant believe I’ve written every single day for 275 days. I’m going to slow down after Solstice I think… maybeπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ its addicting. We’ll see.πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
      Gigi is a sweet girl, she’s just used to having a person with her all the time. She’ll be okay in Daughter’s room overnight. I’m sure Ben will be up bright and early and then the chaos will beginπŸ€ͺ I’m glad I have a big back yard!πŸ˜‰πŸ’•πŸ’πŸ€—πŸ₯°

  1. Wow, I can’t believe it – 275! That is remarkable! My fingers are crossed that all goes well with Gigi and Zeus, the big dumb dog. My pug totally has my lab trained. All food that lands on the floor is Penny the pug’s food. Any attempt Molly makes to get food on the floor will be met with a face clamp. Molly doesn’t even try anymore even though she is four times the size of Penny. She just looks to the sky. Our dog dynamics crack me up and I hope that having your two dogs together is smooth, and maybe a little enjoyable too!

    Here’s hoping for a great night and a great day ahead!!

    1. Gigi is a sweet pit mix. She smaller than Zeus and just as needyπŸ™„πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ I put her in Daughter’s room so Sophie Cat could come in and eat, and she cried and whined like she was out in the rain & snowπŸ™„πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I don’t think she’d hurt the cats, but they dont know her.
      She and Zeus had fun chasing each other. Maybe they will run around the yard are wear each other out. That would be great!🀞 Especially if Ben gets up in the wee hours.πŸ™„πŸ€ͺ
      Have a great Sunday, GLYSB eveπŸ˜‰πŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸ’•πŸ₯°

    1. Awww… thank you!πŸ€—πŸ₯° I don’t think I wrote 275 posts in the years before this combined.πŸ˜‚ I always wrote more in comments than my own posts, but I’m having fun. I might, maybe slow down a bit after the Sciencey Stuff Project is over. I’ll still be reading and commenting… even if I dont do Adventures every day.πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ I donno… πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I guess like everything else, we’ll seeπŸ˜‰πŸ’ŒπŸ’ŒπŸ’Œ

  2. Well done for making it to 275 posts! Who would have thought this virus would be with us for so long? Hope it went well with the dogs – doggy madness can either be fun or drive you crazy! πŸ˜‚ πŸ• 🐾

    1. It was fun AND it drove me crazy!πŸ˜‚ The dogs got on great and wore each other out. The crazy part was both of them wanting to be with me, in my lap. Zeus you know is a moose, and Gigi is a pit mix… not a small pup.
      The both slept well after the visit!πŸ˜‚πŸ’

  3. Congrats on the milestone! In one sense, it feels like time has flown by, because it doesn’t seem that long ago when the journey started. On the other hand, once I reflect back on all hour crazy adventures, I guess it HAS been a hot minute or two… πŸ˜‰
