How sweet. Percy received a card from our pals at Love is being owned by a husky. Thank you, Mika, Lexus and Koda.
Cyndi: Marcus, why are you dancing from one foot to the other? You got ants in your .... um, you aren't wearing any pants. Why are you dancing?
Marcus; "Cause I have to pee. I really have to pee.
Micah: So wake up Jan and ask her to let you outside.
Sam: No, we can't do that. Not after yesterday.
Cameron: I must have missed something. What happened yesterday?
|4" chunk of garden hose cut /missing.|
Percy: How could you forget yesterday? Jan was running from one thing to anoher like a chicken with no head trying to get things done.
Rusty: How would you know anything about a chicken with no head. Have you ever actually seen a headless chicken?
Percy: Well, no, but that's the expression and Jan sure acted like she'd forgotten to put on her head yesterday.
Merci: She went outside to rinse out some vacuum parts and wanted to use the hose. Someone disconnected and wadded it up it a few weeks ago and she hadn't had the time to take care of it.. She wanted to give all the dogs a bath today before she took a shower. But now she can't.
Sam: Oh, what a relief! I don't need a bath. I'm with Marcus. I look good in dirt too. But ... wait, why can't she give us a bath today?
Buddy: Because someone helping Jan ran over the hose with a lawn mower, cut out a 4" chunk of hose, and then hid it by knotting the hose together. Jan was upset because there's no way he didn't know this happened but he never mentioned it.
Rusty: But what does that have to do with Marcus not wanting to wake Jan so he can go outside to pee? Marcus didn't cut the hose.
Cyndi: But that wasn't the only thing that happened. Jan has fixed the leg on the kitchen table a number of times. When she wanted to put new legs on it several months ago, Mr. Doug said, no, need, we'll just rig this and it will hold.
Micah: Yesterday Jan bumped the table and the table did the hula so heartily it scared her. That is one HEAVY sucker! She didn't want to deal with it again, but she had no choice. It was a danger to all of us.
Merci: So she removed the middle leaf and struggled to turn it on it's side. The leg popped right off, the screw and "fix" Mr. Doug had used were gone, and the brace was bent.
Marcus: There was virtually no way to walk around the kitchen, the table things were piled on the washer where Jan fixes our meals and there was nowhere else to set our bowls down. That was totally unacceptable! We have to eat.

Cameron: Oh, so that's why the kitchen was such a mess when I got up from my nap. I assumed she was bored and needed something to do.
Buddy: No, bored is not a word I would use for yesterday. She didn't know what else to do so she used some liquid nail and some duct tape, propped the sagging leg on a stool and some books for a few hours, and hoped for the best.
Percy: The scream you heard was her trying to lift that table back on its feet. Even without the middle leaf, it was too heavy and she hurt her back.
Cameron: Okay, I get it now. We don't want to disturb Jan if we value our lives today.
Buddy: Correct. Tiptoe, lap water quietly - no slurping, cross your legs if you have to go and -
Marcus: I'm sorry, guys, you better hide. I can't hold it any longer. JAAAAAAAAN, HURRRRRRRY, I GOTTTTA GOOOOOOO!!!!!
