Yep, it's starting to get serious now that the weather is getting cooler. Much like peoples know it's fall when the leaves on the trees start turning colors, and it gets dark earlier, and lighter later, and waffles taste better in colder weather.
The Pretty Curly Tails don't put in too many miles during the warmer months because... it's warm. Since they don't put in a lot of miles, they don't need to be watered on the trail.
But when they start putting on the miles, that's when they need water, and sometimes water just doesn't appear where it needs to be (and if you are in Colorado, it appears where you really don't want it, and our hearts go out to those affected by those nasty waters), so we have to bring the water to the Pretty Curly Tails.
Now some of you are saying to yourself: "um, so do you carry a LOT of water with you?"
Oh heck no! That would be too much water to carry, and we're not Gunga Din.
The water gets there after the Musher makes her official proclamation: "Time to drag the water trough". That's when the fun begins!
We get out the trusty John Deere. Usually I have to back it out of the garage because frankly, the Musher is excellent with going forward, but backwards... let's just say everyone hides.
|Hehehe, it's fun to watch Bait and Tic flee into the house|
|Ok Musher, hook it up so I can do some wheelies|
|I am NOT sloshing all of it out, I can't help that the accelerator pedal is touchy|
|Um... you did clean that out before you put the water in, right?|
|Whew, I think we deserve some waffles, don't you?|
Good question. They don't! We spare no expense with the Pretty Curly Tails, and have purchased each of them these state of the art, very expensive... um... cut up milk jug water thingies.
