Eric's Day Flashback - The Big Adventure

This week the flashback comes from August 2008 and is called:
An Adventure.

Dad had left the door open to the implement shed so we went in for a look around.
Flynn: Come over here Eric and smell the hay baler. It's very interesting.
Eric: I can't right now. I've found something much more interesting than that.

Eric: Look Flynn, see what I've found. It's a toad but you don't want to pick them up or taste them because they make your mouth froth.

We managed to drag ourselves away from watching Mr. Toad and went into the field.
Eric: I think I hear something down there.

What was it, where did it go?

We walked further into the field but something was wrong. It smelled the same as usual, but something had definitely changed. Can anycat see what is different?

Eric: I don't know about you Flynn but I don't like this one bit.

Flynn: I agree, I'm worried. Something has been going on here without us knowing about it.

Eric: It's no good, I can't relax.

Flynn: Me neither.

Flynn: That's it, I've had enough. I'm going to bush my tail up to scare off any intruders and I'm going back to the garden.

Eric: Okay but wait while I have a drink. All this worry has made me thirsty.

Did anycat see what was different in our fields?

Dad had been working with his tractor and he had made all the grass go flat. It didn't look right, and it didn't feel right to walk on. It made us very nervous. We didn't like it at all.

How naughty of your Dad to flatten the grass - how will you be able to catch mice if they can see you coming.

I am trying hard to see what is different but don't see anything! Was it a kitty? Love, Cody

John Bellen said...

When something is different and you don't know what it is, it can make a cat a bit anxious. I don't blame you boys for moving on from there.

Colehaus Cats said...

Oh, the grass is flat! No slinking through the tall stalks, no swishing grass sounds. That's not right. Good to know! Purrs....

Austin Towers said...

There's nothing worse than flat grass! I would floof my tail too!! Love the flashback xx

Layla Morgan Wilde ( Cat Wisdom 101) said...

Flattened grass is not natural but easier to spot prey? Love the reflective water pic.

Cathy Keisha said...

Whew! I was afraid he’d actually cut the grass. Guess what? TW bought some airmail stamps so I can send you a Christmas cards with a surprise in it.

Katnip Lounge said...

WOW! we think we might have bushed out at that, too.

Flynn, Miss Pea is all excited that she got a card addressed JUST to her...we can hardly live with her nowadays! Thank you!

Deb Barnes - Zee and Zoey said...

Always enjoy the flashbacks and your blog looks so pretty for the holidays!

Kari said...

Flat grass! Evil toads! Goodness gracious!
We'd think that the flattened grass would feel delightful on the feeties. But then we've never lived in an area with grass. Looks heavenly .....sigh.....

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Flynn you and Eric always had such grand adventures. I bet everytime you are in those fields you feel Eric still right beside you still sharing your adventures.

Shaggy and Scout said...

Do they really make your mouth froth??

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

Mowzers, Flynn,that was an adventure for you for you guys!

Clooney said...

You both are so cute in this post, we didn't realize that flat grass would be so bothersome...

Kitties Blue said...

Do toads really make your mouth froth? Icky! We had no idea what was wrong out in the field...we figured there just weren't any mousies that day. Ho, ho, ho, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
