Today I Was Welcomed to the Children's Butterfly Site
Once about 10 years ago I got in an embarrassing situation.
The granddaughter and I took the huskies for a walk and, I let one of them run loose.
It's nice to volunteer for stuff, I heard so, that's what I was doing.
Helping out the feral cat control people, you might say.
If you turn two Siberian Huskies loose, at the same time, they'll be gone all day.
But, when you keep one on a leash, the one you let go will come back, after awhile.
Well, there must not have been any stray cats so, the dog found something else to do.
He got hooked up with a girlfriend somehow.
The granddaughter spotted them before I did and asked what they were doing.
Grandpas aren't supposed to get stuck teaching little girls stuff like that.
Where are the daughter and son-in-law when you really need them ?
When that girl asks her grandpa a question, she won't quit until she gets an answer.
She wanted to know what the dogs were doing, right now !
My face was probably turning red, under my beard.
The best way to respond, quickly, would be to use English, which she didn't understand.
So, I said, um, um, um, "That's how dogs fax each other."
If she asked me why, I probably would have said, "I don't know and, asked her.....
"What do I look like, some kind of veterinarian?"
Luckily, there were no more questions and, I figured I handled the problem correctly.
That was, until we got back to the house.
The little girl told grandma (in Japanese), she saw the dogs making love !
They had a look at my website and are interested in some images.
That's a nice website, they have and, it's a great way to teach children about nature.
But, I will only send them photos with one butterfly in the scene, at a time.
If they need images like this one, I don't want to be the one doing the explaining.
I think, even adults, will enjoy it.
