Sam: Remember this computer cart? (That's me in the photo.) Jan bought the cart a couple of months ago so she would have a pull out drawer for the keyboard,but she returned it after 3 days because it was rickety and already coming apart.
Crystal: Not only has Jan had to stretch to use the keyboard on the desk, but our Percy reeeeeeally had to stretch.
Cameron: Yes, he must be at least two inches longer by now.
Sam: Well, yesterday Jan got a surprise. She was talking to a neighbor who mentioned she was moving to help her elderly mom and had some furniture she wasn't taking with her because there wasn't enough room for it. And she gave Jan her computer desk.
Crystal: Jan locked the dogs in the bedroom so they wouldn't run out the door, but we kitties got to watch the move through the back screen door. It was hilarious.
Cameron: Yes, it was fun to watch two women lifting that heavy desk down the two steps at the neighbor's. And then Jan rolled it a couple feet, hit a snag in the walk, maneuvered, rolled another couple feet, hit a snag ...
Crystal: But the best part was when she tried to roll it across the lawn. No way! She had to bring it all the way around to the front. And then they had to lift the desk over that high step for our front walk. That took a while.
Cameron: And then they had to figure out how to get it on the front porch. The porch was too high to lift it so that meant they had to carry it up the steps.
Crystal: But they made it. And here it is.
Crystal: Of course, when they came in the door, I took the opportunity to trot out the door. But Jan caught me just over the sill. I only wanted to sit in the rocking chair on the porch. What's wrong with that?
Sam: Jan has to put in the shelves. She decided not to put the monitor shelf on. Something about fearing the cats would knock it off.
Cameron: Geeeeeeze, as if! And what's with the plywood panel Jan stuck behind it? Does she think we're going to dump the whole desk? Well, maybe, if she rescinds permission to use the computer.
Crystal: We tested the shelves last night but then Jan said she is going to fill them with comptuter-related junk, so we refused to pose on the desk this morning. The shelves should be filled with cats. Period!
Sam: So now Jan has her pull out keyboard drawer. And she's excited because this drawer has enough room on it for the mouse. Humans get excited over the strangest things. But offer one a bone ....
