The color of milk

A plastic container full of green liquid

My milk

A Melanie’s Post:

In Skipper’s last post she said that I was going to cover why her milk is green. I’ll do that now, but first I want to apologize for taking so long to get this post up. I’d give you a couple of excuses but they would ring hollow since it’s mostly because I am lazy and distracted.

A Tasty Plastic Treat

Treat time!

Skippers Post:

Did you know I have cats? I do! Two of them. Most of you have met Driftwood. He is white and black and fluffy. Mamba is black and little and slinky.

The weather in Buda

I didn’t know storms could have names, but apparently they can. This storm was something called a “hurricane,” and it’s name was Harvey. (Not a great name, if you ask me. Which you didn’t but I’m telling you anyway.) MelT says the forecast was for rain with a chance of floating cars. Since MelT can’t drive, we didn’t get to see any floating cars. She seems to think they would be a bad thing. I’m not fond of cars, floating or not.
