A GUY IN NEED

Sometimes, after a full weekend of hanging out at ball fields...translated into three games each day, with hurricane force winds, a guy needs a break. Or in the case of Grandma J's main squeeze, JJ, a bath.

Sunday night, when I took my hot shower, I could actually see all the gritty red dirt from the ball field coming out of my hair and off my skin. the wind had coated me from head to toe with grit. On top of the wind, it was cold, and my bones felt like they were frozen. That hot shower felt soooo good!

Yesterday, after lounging around all morning vacuuming and washing my floors, I headed on over to give JJ a bath. He had been at the ball fields with us all weekend, and he needed a bath more than ever.


When I got to my daughter's, A-Ron was fixing himself a pizza. Evidently he was so sore, and had muscle spasms from pitching and playing so many games in the weekend hurricane, that he got a "rest day".

I had to hunt JJ down to give him his bath. Why is it dogs hate baths so much? How do they know what your intentions are? I haven't given JJ a bath in at least a year. He usually goes to the groomer, or my granddaughter gives him a bath. But he knew, and I had to trick him by laying on the couch and pretend to sleep, just to nab him. Ser.i.ous.ly.


After his bath he ran in to share the pizza climb under the covers with A-Ron. just don't let your mommy know you were up on her bed all wet...



But A-Ron must have kicked him out, so now JJ was telling me I owed him, big time! just don't let your mommy know you were on her couch all wet....

It was a warm day, so I took him for a ride in the car to help him dry off.


He loved it, and once again, all was well and good in JJ's kingdom.

I like your little green convertible!

Poor mistreated JJ! My dog actually loves the tub...when he was a pup I would have to close the door when the kids took a bath because the dog would jump in too!

Baseball season rocks!

Even in cartoon land, Grandma J. has the men coming after her, even if it is on a cow. Or is that a bull?

Love the personalized car and really love that dog.

Aww! LUV JJ's pic on the couch!
You're such a FANTASTIC G-Ma!

I'm glad all is well in JJ's world again. It is uncanny how they can figure out what we're up to when it comes time for the "water massage". And your poor grandson, I can feel his pain as well as yours.

That is a serious post-bath sneer on that dog's mug! I am particularly interested in that cowboy chasing after you;) You have a little package on the way....

I dread giving my 2 big babies a bath...they quiver and shake like the water hurts or something. I imagine lil JJ would be muche easier.
You are too sweet...taking him for a ride? Did he get an icecream cone for being a good wet boy? :)

There really are far worse things in life than being JJ.

You and that dog, like two peas in a pod. Do you sneak him into stores in your purse?

CLARIFICATION: A-Ron did not stay home from school for sore muscles!!!! I think he forgot to mention the headache and fever he woke up with at 5:ooAM....
I think we solved the mystery why my allergies bother me at night only... JJ!!!!!

Grandma J said...

OOPS! Someone is working too many hours.

I can only take A-Ron at his word.

And poor JJ not only gets blamed for poop in the livingroom, but alergies too. He's being framed!!
