King Ember and Princess Lil Belle got a John Deere Cap from Grandma and Grandpa for their birthday...

41487

...and of course the Royal Siblings decreed that everyone who wanted to could try it on.

First the King:

41488

Then his sister, the Princess:

The Esquire had a go:

41491

Grace wanted to try it on....

41492
...but Brier told her she was too little.

"It won't fit, Grace! Your head is too dinky!"

Sheriff Cole tried it on.

41493 41494
"It's a little snug," he snickered, "but I think I look smashing in it!"

Ms Macie took her turn next.

41495 41496

"Let me try it on, please!" whined Grace. But the Princess-Queen tried it next.

As Grace watched disconsolately, Princess-Queen Cass donned Cap.

41499

Cass liked Cap so much that she wore it for a while as she finished up some yard-work, much to the dismay of Grace.

41497 41498

When the grass was mowed and the tractor put away, Cass passed Cap on to Lady (in Waiting) Ridge.

"Your Majesty!" yapped Grace. "Can't I have a turn at wearing Birthday Cap?"

"It's too big, Grace," sighed the Princess-Queen. "It would fall off and get lost!"

September 13th, 2008, 09:04 PM
Grace sighed and watched Lady (in Waiting) Ridge model Cap.

41500 41501

"Is it as awesome to wear as it looks, Lady?" whispered Grace.

41503
"Why, yes, Grace, it is really quite the cool Cap!" replied Ridge.

"Oh please, please, please, can't I try it on?!" Grace yodeled.

"Okay," laughed Lady (in Waiting) Ridge, "I'll help you try it on, but it's gonna be too big."

"No it isn't!" yapped Grace.

Ridge passed Cap to Grace and Grace slipped it on. She lifted her head and smiled...

...and Cap slid around under her right ear.

41502
"Oh, fudge!" sighed Grace.

Grace is only about 33 pounds. Our biggest, Cole, comes in at about 60 pounds. Cass and Macie are about 43 pounds; Ridge and Belle are about 45 pounds; and Ember and Brier, about 55.

Awwwww, poor Grace! After waiting all that time so patiently too!! :sad:

September 13th, 2008, 11:16 PM
Don't let them fool you! They weren't so very tolerant of Cap...I was snapping furiously between their bouts of trying to scrape Cap off! :laughing:

Grace is the epitome of sweetness, though, Chase_Mom. :cloud9:

The dogs crack me up all the time, rainbow! When I'm lucky, I have the camera ready when they're in their best form! :D

To be perfectly honest, growler, none of them were especially thrilled about the fashion show...well...until Cass realized she was gonna be able to drive the tractor! :dog: Then she got excited! :laughing: Ridge sort of looks glowering in that one shot, but of all of them, she was actually the most tolerant of it.

:thankyou: chico!

Great story!

hubby does his best swearing when he's trying to change out the mower deck or the snowblower or even change the inconveniently placed filters, but boy he smiles big when he's finally riding his tractor! :rolleyes: Cuz, as you know, nothing runs like a Deere! :laughing: Cass apparently feels the same! :dog:

I was trying to get into your last picture thread, erykah, but my connection isn't fast enough. :sad: How is your menagerie doing? :goodvibes:

Everyone is doing great!:thumbs up

We're big Deere folk here as well, Kita and Bailey are both sporting John Deere collars complete with leashes ( although I can not find Kitas bright yellow one)

hazelrunpack
September 14th, 2008, 09:56 AM
Good for Kita and Bailey! :highfive:

I wanna get 7 more caps (one of them small for Grace :D) and get a group shot! Plus a few of Cass giving them trailer rides behind the tractor. :laughing:

But it's gonna hafta wait till we pay off the vet bills. :rolleyes:

Glad to hear that your crew is healthy and also John Deere fans!! Is Fay getting close to letting you ride yet?

How about a short-term swap...or better yet, you send Nelly here first and when she comes home she'll bring Cass along for a visit! :thumbs up No...no ulterior motive for having Nelly come here first...and I'm sure she and Cass would get back to your house...eventually :whistle:

You're welcome! And I won't tell Grace that you said she had a weeny-head! :laughing: :p

September 15th, 2008, 10:35 AM
It's a hat marketed especially for dogs, TeriM! There is actually an entire store at the mall that sells only John Deere stuff--everything from green salt-shakers to dog apparel to jigsaw puzzles! :eek: Blew me away when I saw it! :laughing: And it's always busy!!!! :shrug: Go figure.

Thanks, L4H--glad I could make you smile. :D

And Chris, I'm glad you were able to download the pics! :highfive: I can't get into page one of my own thread this morning. :rolleyes:

Hazel - John Deere anything is a great collector item. We have a customer who is actually opening his own small museum with tractors. He owns about 50 or so of them. He also has one bedroom of his house jammed packed full of shelving units with every little JD thing you can think of. That will all be going into the museum. Over the years he has spent probably close to half a mil on this stuff. He calls it his kids inheritance. Yeah, the man is loaded!

hazelrunpack
September 15th, 2008, 10:55 AM
Think your friend wants to buy some pics of dogs modeling John Deere apparel and equipment? I know where he can find some cheap! :laugh:

That whole collecting phenomenon is beyond me, but I guess seeing the smile on hubby's face when he's on his tractor mowing the lawn sort of gives me an inkling... I can tell he's enjoying himself...I just can't fathom why!!! :laughing:

Yessss , right :rolleyes: :laughing:

So am I Hazel, because right now it is being a pig, I'm trying to look at pic threads now and it's ajoke, 'cept I'm not laughing :frustrated:
