Hey ya’ll, GOODe Ole Boy here!
School is out and Summer is upon us! It sure feels GOODe to know that that darn polar vortex is long gone, along with all the snow and ice! That weather made workin’ on the railroad
all the live-long day every daggone night a little unbearable! Truth be told I have been on a different shift for a little over a month which means I get to be home every night now. Lemme tell you, Momma is H-A-P-P-Y!!! Miss Add is pretty excited to see her old man more often too 🙂
The other day I was havin’ one of them not-so-fun days at work and wasn’t in the best of moods because of it. Then I get an instagram pic from Cris that Miss Add had her take. Here’s what she sent me:
I gotta admit, it made me giggle in the middle of a pretty ugly day at work. I knew that I was in for a battle when I got home. I even got intel from her momma that the little booger was waiting to ambush me when I got home.
I pulled int the driveway and snuck up to the door where I saw my gun with its cute little note on the front porch. What Miss Add didn’t know was that I had a HUGE bottle of ice cold water with me.
I snuck onto the porch and reached for my pocket knife (the kid didn’t even take mine out of the box for me!) and went to cut the straps loose from my water cannon then load the ammo I had from my water bottle. I hid in the shadows of the porch, peering through the front door to see if she heard me coming, but while I was digging for my knife she was laying in wait just around the corner. That stinker KNEW what I was doing and had snuck out the side door hiding in her own set of shadows!!! I never heard her coming until she had already pulled the trigger and started cackling! I let out a yelp that woke the neighbors I tell ya! She chased me around the yard and laughed and laughed like never before. It took all of about three minutes to forget about the last 8 hours that had previously ruined my day.
She got me GOODe on the first battle:
But I let her have it the next day. I chased her all around the yard soaking her from head to toe!
Well, today after church we decided to have it out. One last battle to take the war, winner take all…Platoon style!
Thanks for the fun, Miss Add. Here’s to many more water wars this summer and much, much more!!!
