Heard around the house Thursday -
BUDDY: It sure is quiet around here. Where is everyone? I thought we were going to work on tomorrow's post.
RUSTY: I'm just hanging out on the computer tower. The others are napping here and there. It's pretty boring when the biggest excitement of the day is Jan wandering around creaking and groaning.
TAYLOR: I hear it's going to be getting exciting. Thunderboomies are on the way. I don't like them.
BUDDY: Well, we did have a little excitement this morning. Remember the guy who said he would come save Jan from having to finish cutting the grass with shears? He showed up at 9 A.M. and kept his word.
RUSTY: Yes, this Knee High To Jan grass sure was thick and hard to cut. Jan says she feels like she's been hit by a truck and she didn't quite finish half the job.
TAYLOR: I guess she won't be getting paid for it then?
BUDDY: She doesn't get paid for it. She does things like that because she loves pain.
RUSTY: He's joking, Taylor. She does them because she has to so we can continue to live here.
TAYLOR: Well, it sure was nice of someone to help her. It looks a bit messy, though.
BUDDY: Don't worry, Jan is trying to work up the energy to go clean up the mess with a rake and a broom. That freshly mown grass will make good mulch for the dog pen.
RUSTY: Well, she'd better get a move on it if she wants to finish between rain storms.
BUDDY: She hitched us dogs up for a walk and discovered it was already raining. We might have to lock her out in order to get the job finished.
TAYLOR: I'm not sure that would be wise, Buddy. Not with the way you and Marcus like to eat. Remember, any one of us could rip open a kibble bag, but she is the only one of us who can pop the top on a food can.
