Percy: We know Jan would rather we not tell this story, but it's too good to keep to ourselves. We've told you a number of times how klutzy Jan is. She just keeps getting better and better at it.
Cyndi: We have all been playing musical beds quite a bit since it got cold and Jan was taking pictures of us yet again when ....
Rusty: ... she tripped over a surge protector strip and ...
Micah: ... you don't want to know.
Cameron: What do you mean they don't want to know? Of course they do!
Buddy: If they don't, we'll tell them anyway. Jan tripped ...
Merci: ... and her arm flew out and the camera flew across the room and ...
Sam: ... it hit the wood over the fireplace and fell onto the concrete with a ...
Cameron: What was that? I nearly jumped out of my fur.
Rusty: Oh, that was just Sam's tail knocking the decorative tin off the table again.
Percy: But that's what happened. The camera crashed to the floor and ...
Cyndi: ... scared the crap out of us, is what it did!
Micah: Jan just stood there staring at the fireplace, then walked over and picked up the camera ...
Merci: ... aimed it at Buddy, stared at the strange colors floating around the viewfinder, and clicked the shutter.
Buddy: Surprisingly it still takes pictures, sort of. Not bad for a camera that flew 4 feet across the room and crashed 3 1/2 feet to the hard floor.
Sam: Yes, Jan measured the distances. She still can't believe the camera is even in one piece, let alone trying to continue on nonchalantly..
Percy: Jan says she hopes it will take half-decent photos until we figure out how to steal ... um, I mean get a new camera.
Micah: We wish we could share a picture of Jan's face when she realized what had happened, but you'll have to use your imagination. Or you could try tripping your human while she's carrying a cup of hot coffee.
Kjelle Bus A.K.A. Charlie Rascals is entered in a photo contest and can use your help. There's no need to sign up, give your email or name, or do anything except to go to this link -
Look for this photo of the handsome Kjelle. All you have to do is to click on ROSTA. That's it. You've voted. Wasn't that easy!
It will seem like nothing happened but the number on the bottom left will have changed and if you click twice, it will tell you you've already voted. Of course, you won't know what it's telling you unless you speak Swedish, but the first time we thought it didn't work and we clicked twice, then ran the popup text through Google Translate. It said we'd already voted. Oh, well good thing we don't speak the language or that would have been embarrassing. :)
We hope you will save the link and vote daily. The contest ends December 31st. We vote daily.
You can read more about the book on the blog 5 Acres & A Dream. Leigh is giving away a copy of her book and it's easy to enter. The link to entry information is in her post. Good luck on winning.
