You Say Tomato, I Say Mom...


Mom and Dad came back from their road trip relaxed and happy, and had a wonderful time. There were six motorcycles in the group, and they rode hard for three days without stop except to refuel. Dad looked pretty much the same when he got home, but Mom was a bit pinker than usual. Apparently she does not weather well, though no one else in the group had a problem. Then Tuesday, her eyes puffed, she turned red as a beet, and her lips swelled up like a sea lion blowing kisses. It seems some of her meds are not compatible with that much fun in the sun, and she had a photosensitive reaction. She missed work a few days so as not to scare small children and pregnant ladies, she was that uber ugly. Have you ever heard someone with balloon lips try to say something? "Hubby, I bhink bhere's somebing wronb wibb be..."

Here they are riding their motorcycle onto a ferry. In spite of Mom swelling up like a ripe tomato, they had such a great time that they can't wait for the next ride. Cap, Glynn and I are looking into one of those little trailers that go behind the motorcycles. Maybe one that makes a pop-up tent. Then we can go cruising and camping with the gang in style. Feel the wind in our beards. Get a little bug crunch in our teeth. Maybe a tattoo, but we won't say where!

Hey there William!!!

I'm thinking that if you gave your mom a bunch of kisses on those super swollen lips, well they would have de-swelled...a lot! Our dog spit is like magic you know!

Slurp!

Hi Tell! We hope your mom's swelling has gone down by now. Our mom found out, a long time ago, that when a prescription bottle says to stay out of the sun, they aren't kidding! We hope all you doggies get to go next time!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Wow, our mom's lips swell up like that, too. We look at her funny when that happens, and she looks pretty bad then.

Let us know if you find one of those little trailers. We sure would like one for ourselves!

Hey William, Paw Mom comig over all hot and bothered but big lips are all the rage - so she must have looked pawsome.

And the trailer idea sounds WICKED and a tattoo too? Utterly, doubly WICKED. Will you have a dog and cross bones? He,he!!
