Guarding Jan's Feet

Percy:  Hey, Rusty, I totally forgot tomorrow is Monday.  I don't know what to post on.  Do you have any ideas?

Rusty:  Nope.  Not a clue.

Percy:  Do you think anyone would want to know that all the early fireworks this weekend have glued Marcus to Jan's feet?

Rusty:  Nope.  No interest. Wait.  What?

Percy:  You know how sensitive Marcus is.  He's always under Jan's feet anyway, but between the recent storms and the fireworks close to home, Marcus is being a big baby.

Marcus:  Hey, have any of you seen where I left my blue ball?

Rusty:  Nope.

Marcus:  Who were you discussing when I walked in?  I think I heard the words "big baby".   Were you talking about Merci?

Percy:  Yes, we were definitely discussing Merci.  You know if we were talking about you, we would have mentioned how brave you are.

Rusty:  So brave you have been guarding Jan's feet to make sure the fireworks don't cause her to panic and run away from home!

Percy:  I take it your strategy is if she panics and tries to run, she'll trip over you?

Marcus:  Uh ... yes.  Exactly.

Rusty:  Good plan.

Percy:  And how long did it take you to come up with that solution?

Marcus:  Not long.  You know I'm a quick thinker.

Rusty:  I think it was about the second !!!BOOM!!!  Marcus, where did you disappear to?

Percy:  He's on Jan's feet.

Rusty:  There's no room between Jan and the desk.

Percy:  There is if you're a big, brave, quick-thinker like Marcus.

Rusty:  There should be time for a quick nap before the emergency.

Percy:  What emergency?

Rusty:  The one Jan's going to have when she tries to leap to her feet.

    BOL MOL... oh you lot; have some sypawthee for jangled nerves...

    Marcus, does it help you to know that I, too, am not in the least fond of fireworks? I think they are one the great un-necessities of life, not to mention a great waste of money. I don't even like a balloon popping. Maybe we had shell-shock in a previous life??? Anyhoo, I hope that the next couple of days are not too hard on your....eefrrrrrr... Jan's nerves... hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. Well I think it was very nice of you to make out Jan was scared of the fireworks to save Marcus feeling bad. You really are very nice for CATS, aye??

  3. We had some loud fireworks yesterday (all the surrounding towns have fireworks on different days to celebrate) but it wasn't too bad. It's actually been rather quiet in the neighborhood because everyone's gone to the parks.

  4. Good to know Jan's feet is a safe spot ... tee..heh

  5. It's been very boomy and crackley for a while around here; poor Angel doesn't like it one bit! Happy Independence Day!

  6. It's okay, Marcus. Bentley is the exact same way. He is my brave warrior and foot warmer. BOL! Happy 4th of July ♥

  7. Protection from the foot monster is very important!

  8. LOL, in our extended family, 'cousin' Lucy is the one who panics over fireworks. Meds don't calm her. Neither does a 'thunder coat'. This isn't a good week for her. Oddly enough, Saphera, who can get startled by a bird's shadow, literally loves fireworks... we have never been able to figure that out.

  9. dood....we canna blame ewe....frank lee....

    N yeer a few bak... a coyoteez waz runnin thru de nayborhhod, him waz that feer full oh all de noize......we feeled
    veree sorree for him N hope he made it ta sum safe tee ~~~ ♥♥

  10. We hope the boomies are not too scary.

    The Florida Furkids

  11. Oh, what a picture! I hope someone had the camera ready when Jan decided to leap!

  12. How much does Marcus weigh anyway...?

  13. We so don't like the boomies!
    We will be under the bed for the duration...

    Noodle and crew

  14. Maybe Jan needs to make a sling and carry Marcus around . . .all 235 bazillion pounds of him! ;p P.S. Marcus , you only have one more day and then things should get much quieter!

    the critters in the cottage xo

  15. We're so glad you're protecting Jan, Marcus. :) Stay safe efurrybody!

  16. Stay calm and be happy, everyone!!

    Momo & Pinot xo

  17. Its noisy here too...but I, MJF am rather deaf now so they hardly get noticed. Pipo doesn't seem too perturbed by them. But petcretary thinks they should not be allowed to do these things except by the professionals. in designated parks, etc. Then its only once and done, phew!

    Marcus just hang in there a wee bit longer. Youa re a brave one to keep Miss Jan so safe from all that horrid booming.

  18. Oh, sweet Marcus how nice of you to be keeping your mom's feet safe from all those boomies. You all were sweet to not let sweet Marcus feel bad lots of us like to guard someone's feet when all those boomies are going off. Chancy has been guarding Mumsy's feet too. We hope you all are having a very nice, safe 4th of July and the boomies are not to loud and they all stop soon. Hugs and nose kisses
