Straw Hat Cyndi
Cyndi: Thursday, May 15 - that's today - is Straw Hat Day 2014 and I offered to model a straw hat and represent all of us.
Buddy: I was going to join her but I couldn't make up my mind on a hat in time.
Cameron: We think Cyndi is lovely with or without a hat.
Rusty: Iza from Mark's Mews is this year's official mascot.
Micah: She's been having a hard time getting around or doing anything, including typing, since Marcus' Mother's Day eve present.
Rusty: Because of that she couldn't wear shoes, only soft slippers for several days. The tree over the dog pen is worse at reading the calendar than Jan is since it thinks it's the fall season and is shedding its leaves. Jan came down the steps into a pile of leaves with a rock underneath and badly bruised her arch.
Marcus: That wasn't my fault. It was NOT my fault!
Buddy: No one said it was.
Marcus: But I get blamed for everything that happens around here.
Sam: Only when you're responsible. And you were the one who nailed Jan's sandal to the floor and knocked her into the gate so she flew and crashed.
Marcus: So you're going to blame me that she broke the gate and knocked the tray with all those things on it into the litter box? I had nothing to do with any of that. She did those things totally on her own.
Percy: Marcus, it's the domino effect. I know you're young but you don't think about what you're doing, just about what you want. This was one of those times you started a chain reaction that nearly took out Jan and half the bedroom.
Marcus: That isn't a good thing?
Merci: No. We're lucky Jan has been able to do the basics to take care of us. You have to learn to be more careful or you'll terminate the Funny Farm.
Marcus: Okay, I'll try.
Percy: You'll try what? To terminate the Funny Farm or to be more careful?
Marcus: I'll be more careful. I promise.
Cyndi: *sigh* If he's anything like Buddy and Sam, he means he promises to be more careful until the next accident.
We are off to join Pepi Smart Dog for Thankful Thursday.
And Thoughtless Thursday co-hosted by Ruckus the Eskie and Love is being owned by a huskie.
