Friday night there was a big storm here with lots of wind and stuff, and that made Barry and Mel really nervous. But we all survived the storm, and Barry did not rip any of his teeth out, like he did that one time when he was being boarded during a storm.
Mom told me that she and her friends who were driving to Des Moines had to drive through a really scary part of the storm, and it rained so hard that they almost couldn't see the road sometimes. Mom was glad that Aunt Judy was driving and not her. By the time they got to Des Moines, it had stopped raining, so they were glad about that.
Oh, and remember that I told you Mom would buy some plants? Well, sure enough, I was right! She bought 7 plants. But they were mostly small ones and not too expensive. Two of them were aloes, and two were hoyas, one was a haworthia, one was an echeveria, and one was a gasteria. Just in case you wanted to know.
But we did not see any basenjis. And I think this is because they were only showing wild animals, and also because basenjis live more in the middle and west parts of Africa, instead of in the east part.
Anyway, I'm glad we don't have any crocodiles around here, because they have big mouths with lots and lots of teeth, and they could eat up a little basenji in one big chomp!
