Project of the Day

You will never guess how Jan spent our time today -- watching her put together a "mobile laptop cart." Pretty strange considering Jan and tools don't mix and we don't have a laptop. All our time wasted because she wants a tray for her keyboard. She says it is too hard to have to stretch across the desk and type.

Percy: I don't know what her problem is. Maybe she should try standing on the typing chair and then she won't have a problem stretching. I stand on the chair and you all know how well I type. But Jan ... well, she's a human.

Buddy: We would have rather visited some of our friends or watched a video or something fun. But no, we got to watch Ms FumbleFingers drop the tools, put pieces together, take pieces apart, switch pieces, take out the screws and turn the bars over to put the screws in the correct side. And this is all she ended up with after all that frustration.

Sam: I didn't realize the cart has so many legs.

Cotton: Sam, some of those legs are yours.

Sam: Oh, so they are. Wonder how they got in the picture?

Cyndi: Anyway, this is the finished cart. If you think this is weird looking, you should have seen the tiny tools that came with it. Jan dropped the allen key so many times, she should get an award. And either the cart is a little lopsided or the floor slopes. We hope she's happy now. She has a place to put her keyboard.

Merci: Sam, you're looking in the wrong direction. The pullout for the keyboard is on the cart. Under the desktop.

Buddy: Guess he'll find it when he hits his head on it.

Crystal: Now she has to rearrange the living room or she can't use the cart. Wonder if she's thought of that yet?

Cameron: I don't know. But wait till she finds out she forgot to add the CPU shelf. Who wants to tell her?

Rusty: Not me, but that should just pop on. She can't set her computer down near the floor anyway. Some of you guys shed quite a bit, you know.


  1. w00fs, heehee sounds kinda like here when mama and daddy iz puttin sumthing together...only they fuss at each other....

    b safe,

  2. My humans have done that several times... different types of stuff... I hate having to snoopervise.

  3. We think Jan did a pretty good job on her cart, considering all the handicaps you guys have pointed out! Good thing she has you guys around to offer advice!

  4. WOW!

    All that in one day?

    I bet she'll sleep well!

    PeeEssWoo: Mom is afraid to open up her laptop FUR some reason!

  5. Well she should have just let you guys do it....Then who knows what it would have looked like!!! Love A+A

  6. We bet you guys did an outstanding job snoopervising this project!
    It's never good when our mom tries to assemble things. There are good things that come from humans assembling stuff..... there are usually boxes involved and instructions to lay on.

  7. His mother did a good job ^^

    ps: You're invited to my birthday party this Sunday! Hugs =)
