Your Check Is In The Mail

MERCI:  I thought we were going to post on what has been going on around here this week.

BUDDY:  Make up your mind, Marcus.  Are you going to play ball or help us post?

MARCUS:  Oh, sorry.  You know how I forget everything when I have a ball or two.

MERCI:  It's been a busy week around here.  Noisy, too.

MARCUS:  Yes, Tuesday morning Jan set down our dog food bowls and there was a knock at the front door.  I left my breakfast unattended to escort Jan in case she got lost on the way.  The nice man who came by last year to patch a leak said, "Hi, I'm your roofer.  We want to start in the back.  Could you unlock the gate for us?"   

BUDDY:  Our landlord forgot to let us know when to expect the roofer, but we were finally on the schedule.

MARCUS: You can afford to be happy about it.  When I, the working guard dog, returned to the kitchen, you were licking the crumbs from my breakfast dish.  Faint from hunger, I staggered through the rest of the day.

BUDDY:  You mean you whined about it until dinner.

MERCI:  The men were on the roof until sundown, then back the next two mornings at 7:15.  Wednesday they worked a 12 hour day.  

MARCUS: Jan said I was good because I soon stopped barking at the noise.

BUDDY:  No, Jan said we were good.  You don't get all the credit.

MARCUS:  Well, I'm going to get all the paycheck.

BUDDY:  What paycheck?

MARCUS:  The guy in charge said I did such a great job of snoopervising that I deserved a raise.

MERCI:  I doubt that, but if he did, he was pulling your leg.  A raise from zero is still zero.

BUDDY:  Let's get back on track.  Here are a few pictures of the roofing project from the past three days.

MERCI:  And, finally, our new roof.  We thought the guys would leave a mess of nails in the yard - and you know how accident -prone Jan is - but the guys did a good job of cleaning up after themselves.

MARCUS:  That's because I did an excellent job of snoopervising.

BUDDY:  *rolls eyes*  I'm sure your check is in the mail.

We are joining the Pet Parade blog hop with hosts Rascal and RoccoBionic Basil, Barking From the Bayou and Owned by a Husky.
