Freaky Friday: DownUnder visitors


Last Tuesday Dad came in from the mail box with a huge gray box we cut away the gray to find......
 It was clear to us that someone had ordered a box Crocs  BUT why!? 
FYI I'm not sharing my food with them!! 
After they sat in the box for 24 hours.....I told Dad
Lo and behold we discovered......
Surely there was a mistake and they must be returned...
Mom finally told us after the 15.5" of rain we rec'd in 12 days, she discovered her ankle high rain shoes to be useless.
The Farmer's Almanac said this was gonna be a very wet winter 
so in a lickety split nanosecond she went on line to 
order knee high boots....(along with every other female  in the world)...Mom was heart broken to discover there were no 
RED boots big enough to fit her BIG FOOT...but at least she didn't have to order WHITE...'cause WHITE is her least favorite color.
THE END

  1. I am sorry they weren't the right color, but I hope they keep her footies nice and dry and warm. I was scared for a minute when I saw you got a croc in your house. Whew I am glad it was boots.

  7. Gosh, how disappointing. I was thinking someone had delivered a real live crocodile to your mailbox. Wouldn't that have been exciting?

    PS Blue is the favourite colour in our household. Gail says if she decided to buy some blue wellies, she'd probably find they only had red..

  8. I'm glad it weren't real crocs in that box, they are always hungry :o) maybe your mom ordered that crocs at the same store like my daddy ordered our not-black-butt-white chairs? Blue is cool too and with wearing blue no one will step on your mommas blue (suede) shoes :o)

  9. We are expecting an El Nino season here, which means lots of rain - my human needs to invest in some rain boots! She saw some that had a paisley pattern - she is probably going to buy those.

    When it comes to keeping the footsie dry, fashion is the last thing on my mind! No leaks... that's the important bit. Pawhaps now they're bought, the rain will stay away!!! Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  13. Love your Mom's BOOTS! Wish she could have gotten her favorite color RED. But these will do the trick!

  14. WE think that your mom's new HIGH WATER Boots are a GRRRRREAT color... butt we know that your mom LOVES her some RED... Maybe you could PAINT them... or get some Red DUCK Tape and put Racing Stripes
    on them. THAT would be FUN.

  18. It's still a very nice color. It was wise of you to stand guard though. You never know....

  19. Well, blue is the Momster's favorite color, but she can't find boots to fit her BIG and SKINNY foot properly. We think your Mom will like the blue very much as long as they keep her feet dry:)

  20. Very stylish. Navy is one of my favourite colours for shoes or clothes. Sorry you couldn't get your red ones.
    Yes, white would have been like working in a morgue.

  21. OMD, BOOTS!!! Ma has been on the hunt to try and find some waterproof shoes to fit her freaky feet too! So far she has ordered 10 pairs, and sent all of them back! (thank you Zappos! ☺), so the hunt continues! BOL
    She hopes she won't need boots, butts you knows it's gonna rain like cats and doggies this winter, so she might have to order some croc boots too!!
    Kisses,

  25. Those remind us of the boots that dad bought mom when they lived in the other house and had to irrigate. Mom never did do it, even though she had the boots. We are glad that a real live crocodile did not come and try to eat you up!

    Your Pals,

  26. Now that Mom has her new rain boots, it will probably be a drier winter! Just sayin' : Murphy's Law!
    Not the Golden Doodle! Although Molly would love to romp with Murphy and Stanley! :)
