Wow. Sorry I didn't write anything yesterday. I guess I've been partying pretty hard. It was my last night in Oregon and it got kind of bananas. I don't remember everything that happened but I do know I ended up naked in a hot tub with two girls and a terrier. I don't know what it means but my mom called me Hef all the way home.
I also have a new road dog, his name is Baby Daniels. He's real cool. The kind of guy you can get crazy with.
My mom and Lisa laughed a lot talking about how much trouble they got into when they were teenagers and everything else that happened since they became best friends 25 years ago. She is happy that they live close enough to visit now. Shout out to the Kimballs...my white blond posse...thank you for taking care of us!

My mom and I drove to Oregon to visit her best friend Lisa's family. I played with all these girls, the girls of Lisa, Emily and Greta Bug and the other girl is the neighbor Elizabeth. They all did cheers for me and kicks and splits and I could not believe my eyes. I have never felt these feelings inside. They are so pretty.

This is Bilbo. He's Mamam's friend Linda's dog and they are visiting and I am FREAKING OUT!!! He's the same size as me and he plays with my ball because I am good at sharing and he runs past me and I shout "doddie"!Its like if a giant polor bear came to visit your house and ran up next to you all the time. Excitement. Today I grabbed his lip in between my fingers when I thought no one was looking. Danger.

I never really showed you guys the inside of the house here, My World.
First and most important --- MY TUBBY! This is where it all goes down.
And there's my cupboard. Its got only wooden and plastic stuff that I can't break but I try and try all day. All the other cupboards have twistie ties on them. Daddy tried to put on latches with the drill to keep me out but he couldn't do it without bad words and his loud voice so he gave up. This was before he went to Tahoe to learn how to be a fix it man.
That's my bed in my bedroom. I can play where I sleep...can you?
And there's the big living room with the big fireplace ("hob!" = hot) and the big deck outside looking down on clover. That's Mamam there, who you already know.
I am a little King.

Dad left today to go work with Grandpoop in Lake Tahoe. They are building a house, outside while it is snowing. My mom had a lot of advice for my dad on what to wear to stay warm but he didn't even take a jacket. We dropped him off at the airport and then me and mom met a giant black man named Cole on the ferry. He said he was a super hero, Super Cole, who protects kids from molestings. He sure was big and he sure talked about molesting kids a lot. I kept touching his shoulder, I just didn't care. Now its just me, Mom and Mamam at the house here. Its like Cold Mountain.

The Branch deWittians
This is the main house on the deWittian compound. This is where we live now. We are looking for a house for me and my parents on another island nearby. We drive around in the afternoons looking at little towns that sit by the water saying oooh and wow and look at that one. Everywhere we go my parents say things like "amazing investment opportunity" and "flip this mf'ers". When we find the right house the man at the mortgage company says its a GO. For now, we stay here and make fires and they play Scrabble and I play with toys and chairs. Last night was Margarita Night and my dad made two pitchers. He stood up after dinner and said it was the first time he's been drunk since he left Los Angeles. Yay Daddy! Today Mamam and Mom and I walked down the road while my dad road his bicycle back and forth.
We are getting in shapes.

From the beginning...
A few weeks back my Dad and Uncle the Chief drove our stuff up from LA to Washington. They had some fun, my Dad ate oysters somewhere and somewhere else got a tick stuck in him and it tried to drain him of his blood. He's okay now. My mom and I flew up a few days later. She was sad to leave her friends and her Echo Park lake and we stopped and flapped our arms at the ducks one last time before we left. There are no brown people here like at the lake, except my mom. My dad says to be quiet about all that cuz they hang people for race trading out here.
We've been here two weeks now and my dad is "a new man". He does lots of chores outside with gloves on, he whistles a lot and grabs at my mom. We watch him chop wood from the warm house and mom says he is so manly and then when he comes inside they whisper to each other and giggle.
My mom is in a transitional phase. It is very different here but real real pretty and she says we are very lucky and should not complain about anything. I am very happy here. The cold air makes me hyper and screamy.
