Delivery Time

The delivery man in the brown truck came today-we were expecting a package. The expected package contained an internet order and was extremely disappointing. Out of 14 items orders, it contained only one of them and 13 were on back order. I didn’t know I was ordering from squirrels. The other was completely unexpected-outta the blue! It was from my buddy, Ranger, that beach bum from North Carolina. At least he seems to live at the beach.

We opened the package and I couldn’t believe it. Dreams do come true! I didn’t know that these were for real. Yes they do have


You mean to tell me that I’ve been on this planet for over 12 years and didn’t know that there were green bean chips? I have totally wasted my life. But, as they say, today is the first day of the rest of your life and I’m going to make up for lost time. What’s that, peep? Whaddya mean I can’t have more than one a day? To hell with my low-fat diet. Oh, OK. I remember the pancreatitis pain. So, evidently this is a treat to be doled out carefully. I’ll just have it for dessert after I get the frozen beans. But as they say in the info-mercials, “but wait, there’s more”! There’s a Kong frog. Kong stuff is hard to destroy-it takes me some time. It has minimal stuffing AND a replacement squeaker.


Whoa, what’s that?


Kali-get away from that-it’s MINE. The package was addressed to ME, not you. Kaci (“little miss toy-in-mouth”) is trying to stake a claim on the frog.

SAM_1474Well, maybe if I gave them a green bean chip (and one for moi, of course), they might back down.


Kaci (as usual) ran to the back of the house so nobody could grab her treat. With the selfishness of these two, I’m just going to have to guard my new stuff.


There was a note from Ranger. “Thinking of you, Kyla”. I’m speechless. However, in my best Scottish Carolina accent,

AROOOOO-Thank y’all, sir.

  1. OMD OMD OMD We have never heard of Green Bean Chips EITHER…. we get ours fresh from the plants in the garden… not in CHIP Packages… OMD KYLA that was super grrrreat… and Ranger also sent you a Green Bean Colored FROG??? What a guy.

    PeeS… Using the Word Squirrel would NEVER be offensive… unless you said somethingy like… SQUIRRELS are WONDERFUL… Ack spit patoooooie…. we hated even having THAT come from our mouths as an EXAMPLE. Just Sayin.

  2. How did you know it was me? It was supposed to be a mystery gift.
    Pees…. Da frog is one of Karma’s southern cousins.

  3. See not all packages are created equal. What a great gift from the beach bum Ranger. That rocks.

    Have a woof woof day. 🙂

  4. It’s nice when a friend sees something and thinks of you. What a special place blogville is with all types of furfriends. Who would of know that Green Beans are Chips.

  5. You lucky girl. Trader Joe has a Inner Peas- crunchy baked green bean snack for people. if we are really good, mom gives us a few.

  6. Green Bean Chips well I never! That is definitely a box of treasurers. Got to love Ranger for that one.

  7. Ranger rocks and beats the other dumb order sabotaged by squirrels. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  8. Green bean treats! Who woulda thought. Bet when Ranger saw those he saw your name written on them! What a great guy.

  9. A Kong Frog and green bean chips! Holy Moley, you are one lucky pup. Defend your gifts, Kyla!

  10. That’s so sweet of Ranger 🙂

  11. You have a friend with a dehydrator just down the road! 100g of fresh green beans has a fat content of 0.2g. I think the fat your [dad} is worried about is from the canola – easy enough to avoid. It would be my honor to make you a batch of fresh green bean chips for you if you’ll have them! I will personally select the freshest pods from the organic section of the produce department on my next hunting and gathering expedition!

    • That was his idea also. He was going to dehydrate some sweet potato chips this weekend and he was going to experiment with the beans. Yes, the canola oil scared Him into it. I can’t hate another way to enjoy my beans.

  12. WHAT….Green Bean Chips, how in the world was this not know like a bazillion years ago, and really during the Olympic Zoomies, you could have sold like 87 million bags of that stuff….it could have been a geen bean chip covered running track!

  13. HOLY GREEN LANTERN!!! I didn’t know abouts these either!! Wowsa, that Ranger sure is a good HUNTER! And, that was pawsome of you to share with the pack, even if it was to gets them off your back! High Paw Ranger!!
    You need a margarita to go with those? ☺
    Ruby ♥

  14. You got the Mother lode! Too bad about that tree rat packing order. They do everything wrong! I bet that Kong froggie is going to feel a lot of love!

  15. Green bean chips? Dose sound tasty!

  16. wow! green beans and a frog, that’s cool. Now you have your own Karma what you can take in your mouth without foaming! my mom placed an order at a squirrel store too… and she had to buy some useless trashures as well to hit the minimum order value for free shipping. guess what? the useless stuff came but the thingy she really wanted was no longer available… and as a highlight she had to pay the shipping fees …. uhoh!

    • That’s ridiculous. You should mention the name of that squirrel store so we can avoid it. I’ll see if my back ordered stuff arrives somewhat soon. At least these squirrels haven’t dinged me for shipping; The item that actually arrived was enough by itself to qualify for free shipping. They’ll lean that there’s nothing like barks between customers and potential customers.

  17. Green Bean Chips rock! We must get some too! Love the frog 🙂 Hope you got some squeeker killer time in before it got stolen. Those tree rats are evil!

  18. What a wonderful gift from a furiend! Hope you’re getting to enjoy those green bean chips!
    Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy

  19. That was so nice of Ranger! Kyla, how are you doing sweetie? Sorry we can’t stop by as often as we used to. Things are so very busy! Much love, The Scottie Mom.

  20. I never had a green bean chip! Can I move over to you house? Haha!
