Going to the Fair

Now that summer is almost over, it's time for the Fair to come to town.  This year my Mommie painted a beautiful picture of a trout on a stool and she entered it into a contest at the Fair.  I sure do hope she wins! 

Here is the picture of the stool.  Do you like it?  You can see her other pretty paintings at her website at: http://www.troutpainter.com/.

She and Daddy are going to take me to the Fair next week.  I can't wait to see all the animals and ride some rides.

Another School Visit

I went to visit another school last week.  It was so much fun!  Sky the Western Pony went with me and Mommie read the story about how Sky came to live with us to the children.  They really liked the story and had a good time meeting Sky.

Mommie took the kids supplies so that they could make a hand fan with a picture of Sky and me on it.  They colored the picture, then pasted it onto a craft stick to make the fan.  You can make one too.  Just look on the Activity Page on my website at www.alvietheburro.com/activitypage.html to find the instructions.

Going to School

I have been having so much fun going to school this summer!  That's right - going to school this summer.  I have visited several Day Care Centers with Mommie.  She read my story "Alvie Finds a Home" to the children and gave them a sticker with my picture on it.  They also got a copy of my story to take home with them. 

The kids were so bright and funny.  They asked some fun questions too.  I really like going to school! 

You can find the story Mommie read to the children at www.alvietheburro.com/alviefirststory.html   There are seven Alvie stories in all.  I hope you read them and like them.

Mommie's Paintings

You may not know this but my Mommie is a really good painter.  She paints pictures of fish for my Daddy - he likes to go to the Great Smoky Mtns. and fish for trout.  So she paints pictures for him.  I think they are really pretty. 

She put them on a website so everybody can see them.  The website is www.troutpainter.com.  You can even buy one if you want to.

Oil in the Gulf

Last night Daddy and Mommie watched the news on TV.  There were sad pictures of birds, fish and turtles covered in oil in the Gulf of Mexico.  I don't really understand everything that happened, but I feel so sorry for those animals.  I'm sure they are confused about why their home is covered in oil and doesn't smell or taste the same anymore.

I am so glad that my home is still clean and nice.  I know that I want to do everything I can to keep it that way.  Here are some things I can do to protect the place I live:
- When I see trash on the ground I can pick it up and thow it away in a trash can.
- And never throw trash on the ground myself!
- I can remember to turn off the water and lights when I don't really need them.
- I can help Mommie plant pretty flowers to make our yard look nice.
- I can put out seeds and water for the birds.

Can you think of other things you can do to keep your home nice and clean?

It's HOT Already!

Whew! It sure is HOT and it's not even true summer yet.  (The first day of summer is June 21.)

Lots of the kids in my neighborhood are playing at the pool everyday...but I don't like water!!  Daddy always tries to get me into the water to take a bath, but I tell him that burros don't take baths.  I try to just LOOK at water, not get in it.  Anyway I think I smell sweet without taking a bath.

To cool off, I just get under a big shade tree and take a nap.  Naps are one of my favorite activities.  Well, technically speaking, a nap is not an "Activity", but you know what I mean, don't you?

Memorial Day

Mommie told me about a holiday that is happening this weekend called Memorial Day.  It is a special day set aside each year to honor the men and women who died in military service. 

One good way to to do this is to fly an American flag.  Some people go on family picnics and watch fireworks ( I'm kind of scared of fireworks - they make a really loud noise!).

If you know someone who has served, or is now serving, in the military, now would be a good time to thank them for all they have done to keep us free and safe.

Have a happy Memorial Day!

Hay Fever - Oh No!

A-Choo!  Excuse me, please.  Another big sneeze!  I have sneezed so much lately.  And my nose itches too.  When your nose is as big as mine, and it itches, then you have big trouble!  A-Choo!  Excuse me again.

Mommie says I must have hay fever.  I really like hay.  Next to oats and burritos, hay is my favorite food.  I sure do hope I'm not allergic to it!  But even if I am, I'll just have to get used to it.  I don't think I could ever stop eating hay - it's sooooo yummy!

Burrito Means "Little Burro"

Mommie and Daddy were watching TV last night.  They were watching a program on the Food Network called "Throw Down with Bobby Flay".  It is so funny.  Mr Flay challenges another cook to a contest to see who can make the best food.  Sometimes he wins, but sometimes the other cook wins.  They always make really yummy looking food, and all the people in the crowd get to eat it!  Yum Yum!

Last night the contest was for making Burritos.  And guess what?  I found out that the word "burrito" means Little Burro!  How about that?  Since I am a little burro, I guess my new favorite food will have to be burritos.

Playing in the Yard

Oh my!  Mommie's flower garden looks so nice!  It is very colorful.  She works in her garden for hours every Saturday, so I guess that's why it looks so pretty.  And Daddy mows the grass too.  It is so beautiful.  It looks like a green carpet!

I sure am glad that spring is finally here, aren't you?  I like the warm, sunny weather because I get to go outside and play in the yard. 

Sky and Valentina like to go out with me and we all have such fun!  Since we are all so small, we play Hide and Seek among the flowers.  Since Sky's legs don't work so well, he can't do the "seek" part very well.  He is good at hiding though.  It is so hard to find him when he hides.  He hides behind the leaves and gets real quiet.  Then he stretches his neck up and yells BOO! at Valentina.  It really makes her jump and she squeals too.  Ha Ha Ha!  But I don't think she is really scared, she just likes to pretend that she is.

What games do you play in the yard?

Think Positive

It's important to keep a positive attitude.  It's the best way to make good things happen in your life. 

Here is a saying by Henry Ford, the inventor of the automobile:
"Whether you think you can or think you can't, either way you are right."

Remember the Little Engine That could?

Sky the Western Pony

By now I hope you have read my latest story about how I met my new friend Sky the Western Pony.  You can read it for free on my website www.alvietheburro.com

Sky has a problem with his legs and can't walk or run like other ponies.  He doesn't feel sorry for himself though.  He tells funny jokes and makes Mommie, Daddy, Valentina and me laugh. 

Here is one of his horse jokes:

Q: What did the horse say when it fell?
A: I've fallen and I can't giddyup!

Ha Ha Ha!  Isn't Sky a funny Dude?  You can read more of Sky's jokes on the Activity Page at my website.

My New Friend - Sky the Western Pony

Guess what?  I have a new friend named Sky the Western Pony.  He is so fun and tells funny jokes.  Sky has something wrong with his legs, so he can't run and play like other ponies do, but we still find ways to have fun.

I hope you will read all about him in the new story on my website at www.alvietheburro.com

Here is a cute photo of Sky and me.

Brrrrrrrrrrr, It's Cold!

Oh my!  It is cold outside.  Little brown burros don't like cold weather.  Since we don't wear shoes, our hoofs get frozen.  We don't wear many clothes either, which is a problem in cold weather.  I think I'll stay inside near the fireplace.

Yesterday my Daddy made hot chocolate.  Yummy!  It made me feel warm and cozy.

Do you think all this cold weather is caused by "Global Warming"?
