Gypsy Jabbers: You Just Don't Get It

Gypsy didn't like the utility pole near our campsite at Fort Clinch.


Every time we passed the pole, she would bark,
using her sharp, "let me at 'em" bark.
At first, Dreaming found it a bit amusing.
However, other campers probably didn't think so!


Here is Gypsy's point of view:

What Dreaming Hears:
Bark! Bark! Bark!

What I'm Saying:
Watch out! Don't you see it?
There's a Koala clinging to that pole!

What Dreaming Hears:
Bark! Bark! Bark!

What I'm Saying:
Look out! 
That giant caterpillar might
drop down on us!


What Dreaming Hears:
Bark! Bark! Bark!

What I'm Saying:
Yikes! It is a huge termite.
It's going to eat the pole and
the wires will fall on us!

What Dreaming Hears:
Bark! Bark! Bark!

What I'm Saying:
Hey!
Aren't you going to help that
smoke jumper who  got hung up on the pole?
What Dreaming Hears:
Bark! Bark! Bark!

What I'm Saying:
Geesh!
You just don't get it.
You are no fun at all!

  1. Good creative thinking on your part. Gypsy on the other hand was completely serious!

    1. You are correct. She was very serious. It actually began when a vulture was perched on top.... but after that, I guess she just saw the transformer and all of the wires and decided that big bird was still there!

  2. Funny how they sense something is there...but it is serious to Gypsy. She has to keep you safe:)
