Six Word Saturday: What do you think lives inside?

A slow rattling sound could be heard behind the green part of this rock wall. Whatever it was, I told them to step away. What if a snake poked his head out? No Thanks!
Still wondering about that sound. Ellis is not taking any chances…stands behind brother.

Thanks Debbie for hosting this challenge!

  1. I love how Ellis is standing looking over shoulder. ‘Dude you go first…..c’mon…..you are older it is your job to go first…..closer…..and then shriek in ear as something looks out. Or not. He he he he I had a younger brother torment went both ways. πŸ™‚ Have a great day.

    1. Sibling dynamics are interesting! Even if it’s nothing, she may scream and he will scream and wonder why they’re screaming in the first place. I can just imagine it. Then a few minutes later act like nothing happened and their best friends again. I grew up as an only child so observing these dynamics is eye opening to this “love/hate relationship.”
      Hahahah, how funny. Siblings challenge you to become stronger and develop thick skin.
      Hope you, Tember, and the kitty (was his name Thomas?) are having a good weekend!!
      Love it when you stop by and say hello.

      1. Yes Thomas is beginning to respond to the ear medication. And treat he receives. Has begun to eat again and is so unimpressed with the fact he only gets 3/4 cup of food for the day instead of a cup and a half

      2. Poor guy, getting better from an ear infection! How interesting that little kids get ear infections and so do little kitties. I have no idea if there even is a relationship but just an observation. lol.
        hahaha, he thinks you’re holding back on the food. πŸ™‚

    1. Agree. Not necessary to do a closer check of what’s making that sound and get hurt in the process. I wouldn’t know what to do and that’s terrible in those situations.
      In the great outdoors, the dry leaves rustling and shifting on the ground or around trees can be a big, maybe unwanted, surprise too.

      1. Caveman lingo … make it some type of secret lingo they communicated between one another. Maybe even a grocery list. πŸ™‚ That’s funny … well they can use those for paperweights for school work.

      2. That sounds like fun. We communicate sometimes through walrus sounds for entertainment. But I recently learned that walrus didn’t make the “wurp wurp” sounds we made.
        Great idea for reusing the hieroglyphics print!

      3. One day we will go to Jurassic Quest. It’s gotta happen before the kids get too old. They are still wide-eyed curious and oooh and ahhh over these things. Now I understand why parents drag their kids to cool places to see their reactions. lol.
        Thank you for sharing this link!

      4. You’re welcome – I wanted you to see exactly what it entailed and they extended it the extra week as it was such a hit. They take photos at the end – they didn’t elaborate if it was out of the car or not. I hope it shows up in your neck of the woods while the kids are still enamored with dinosaurs.

      5. They do. It’s subtle but you see the changes in their development. Happy they’re becoming more independent but wistful thinking how much they’ve grown and how much we’ve grown old. Process of life I guess!! It’s harder to be older than younger.

      6. Yes, as I get older I remember my parents saying to me when I was young “enjoy your youth now … as much as you want to be older, it is not all that it is cracked up to be!”

      7. Same here. My mom used to say that I would be very busy as an adult, so I should stick with my activities consistently and do well in them. I ignored her advice thinking that I’ll have more time as a grown up. Ack, she was totally right. I haven’t admitted it to her yet; maybe I will soon to make her day and say she was right. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Diane! Your comments make me feel so happy.
      I would love to read about the places you go on your nature walks, if you do go. It doesn’t have to be a far away place. Anywhere close with nature and you’ll be surprised with what you discover.
      Hope you have a great start to a new week and please say hello to Jerry for me!

      1. You’re welcome, Esther! I really enjoy talking to you. πŸ’™

        I’ll certainly post something about the last nature walk I was on… that was probably 2 months aback if I’m not mistaken.

        Thank you! It was a good week regardless of a few setbacks and I hope yours was great, too. He’s currently asleep. When he wakes, I’ll certainly hug him for you!

      2. That’s great to hear. Whether major or not, a setback is a setback.
        But when things improve, we’ll be able to look back and see how God was working. I just wish he’d work faster…hahaha, no, j/k/ His timing is perfect.
