What’s On Your BLT?

July 20, 2013 at 2:12 pm 8 comments

Charlie Bear here with a surprising twist on an old favorite.

Mom Peep eats BLTs every once in a while–that wonderfully crunchy sandwich of toasted bread filled with crispy bacon, ripe red tomatoes, and green leafy lettuce. Sometimes, she’ll pluck out a tiny piece of bacon and give it to me. Yummy!


But today, we’re going to talk about something different. Mom and Dad Peep just got back from a BLT. And it goes like this:

The B stands for Bucket.

The L stands for List.

The T stands for Trip.

They went all the way up to Canada to visit a place that has always been on their bucket list for trips. They wanted to see Banff and Lake Louise (you know that gorgeous picture you see on TV of a lake behind a big hotel? that place).

Then they rounded out the trip with an overnight stay in Calgary and the biggest outdoor rodeo: the Calgary Stampede. They ate and walked and ate and walked some more around the entire Stampede grounds and then they came back at night for the awesome Chuck Wagon Races, the Grandstand Show, and fireworks. KISS performed…which was unexpected. And Dad got a picture of Mom Peep between two of the KISS guys. She looked like a drowned rat (like me when I go swimming) ’cause it was raining but they were very happy.

They had a blast on their once-in-a-lifetime vacation. Do you have any BLTs on your list?

Wiggles and Woofs to you,

      A road trip! That would be awesome on Route 66. Isn’t that here in California somewhere? Maybe you could stop in and say “howdy.”

    B.J. & Charlie Bear, As the song goes; “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore”, so no I have not been on no BLT, but did go to a place near where your mom & pop peeps went, I went back in 1998, we left out from Seattle, WA. and drove to a place and got on a large boat and went in to Canada. We went shopping for a piece but was afraid to venture too far for fear of getting lost. It was fun but I have never been so cold in the summertime before nor since. I had to stay holed up in a place that was a little bit warmer but not much. If I ever go that way again I will be better prepared, but it was fun though. Yes I like those other BLT’s also.. You guys ‘Take Care’ and enjoy the rest of the summer. Summer is about over for School starts in 15 more days here. Am thinking of sending Beaugie to School, he would not cotton to that at all, do you think?

    Woofs & Barks;
    Alice & Beaugie.

      No, I don’t think you’d cotton to going back to school. Me either, though Mom Peep tries to keep me educated in her own way. Traveling is good…being in my own home is better…and Mom and Dad Peep say coming back to their own bed is heaven!

    Hi B.J. What a fun trip! Yes, we just completed a bucket list trip of our own! If you’ve seen my Facebook posts lately, you’ve seen our pics from our volunteer caretaker stint at the Little River Lighthouse in Maine the past two weeks. It was awesome!

      Mom Peep did see those awesome pics of your time in Maine. Incredibly beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
