Andy the Armadillo: Still doing Texas

Last week, we left Andy to recover after what should have been an epic sugar hangover. This week, as promised, we get to hear about Andy’s visit to the country, and his encounter with a gator.

Please remember to check out the blog of the woman behind Andy’s Texas adventure, Georgette. She has countless tales to tell, even without an armadillo: Georgette Sullins’ Blog.


Driving out into the country, we played ‘I Spy’ looking for one of Andy’s cousins.

Driving out to the country in Rick’s truck, he let me drive shot gun, as they say in these parts.

We stopped to nestle among the bluebonnets.

Ahhhh…lovely bed. Can I take a nap now?

Mama LD gave permission for Andy to play in the mud. I knew he would be happy here while there’s plenty to drink right now.

Real Texas mud!

♫Home, home by the pond where the deer and the armadillos play♫
Don’t worry, we’re in a drought. It’s not deep.

Rick let me drive the Gator…

the John Deere Gator…wo-oop!

Rick hired me to patrol. Thanks to my paid gig, my passage to New Zealand is paid for.

I’m working my way to see you soon, Judith.

We sang “Deep in the Heart of Texas” with Ray Charles on the way home.  Do you have a favorite car song?


Thank you, Georgette. Based on the last phone call I had from Andy, he is having such a wonderful time. That Andy sure is a talker. I appreciate all the time and energy you and Rick put in to showing Andy an awesome adventure! Again, thank you!

Andy Armadillo :: A Texan Tale

When we last talked about Andy, he traveled to Florida to spend time with his Aunt K8. Now, we are turning our attention to the Lone Star State and Ms. Georgette Sullins, hostess extraordinaire.

From a chair that swivels and rocks, Georgette shares wonderful stories of her family, past and present. The adventures her grandparents, cousins, parents, etc. experienced are beautifully told by Georgette. I am amazed at the history of her family, and I am certain she’ll share her rich family history with Andy. Something tells me, she’ll enlighten Andy to his own history, too.

Andy’s time in Texas will be told throughout the month. Once he departs Texas, he is heading overseas to New Zealand. Let me know if you are interested in showing Andy around your area of town. In the meantime, please enjoy the tale this week. Continue reading “Andy Armadillo :: A Texan Tale”
