Tickled Pink

Taylor:  When did Jan turn pink?

Micah:  What?

Taylor:  She's been wandering around since yesterday saying she is tickled pink. She doesn't look pink to me. 

Micah:  That's a human expression.  It means she is very happy about something.  And if you hadn't been in hiding from the two strangers in the house yesterday, you would know why she thinks she's pink.

Taylor:  But I thought bad things were happening to her.  Why would she be happy?

Micah:  Oh, you mean things like Thursday morning she was bitten on the back of the hand by something, possibly a spider, and the itching and burning has been driving her crazy?  And Sunday morning at 6 a.m. she rolled over and tried to sit up but she was on the very edge of the bed and fell off, scraping her forehead as she hit the corner of the bureau and slid down  And when her head hit the floor, the rest of her rolled off the bed twisting her back?

Taylor:  Exactly.  And then first thing Monday morning she was petting you, when you turned around, slipped on some papers, and left claw marks just below Jan's eye.  

 Micah:  That was an accident, just as the knob popping off the front door a week and a half ago was an accident.  She asked her landlord for help..  His nephew and another guy came over yesterday to replace it.  Such a change from the ugly old brown set.

Micah:  And while they were here, the outdoor bulb under the roof was replaced so she can see inside the dog pen when she has to go out at night, the toilet valve was replaced, the heaters were blown out with compressed air so they can be turned on when the weather gets colder - and a most welcome surprise.

Micah:  They built her a sturdy railing for the back steps.

Taylor:  Is that why Jan thinks she is pink?

Micah:  Yes!  Put on your rose colored glasses and let Jan be pink for the day.

Taylor: I don't have any rose colored glasses.

Micah:  That's okay.  A little pink nail polish on a pair of Jan's reading glasses will do the trick.

  1. I am glad the landlord's nephew and friend came round and fixed all those jobs for Jan. The handrail for the steps is a very good idea too knowing how accident prone Jan is.

  3. That's wonderful and sounds pinky purrfect to me!

  4. How fun and I so love being tickled pink too. It's a very good thing.

    Your poor mom sure has a lot of boo boos. I admit I chuckled when she fell out of bed. I've done that too.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Scritches to the furbabies. ♥

  5. This makes me so happy that I am tickled pink for you! It will be so nice to have a handrail for your steps this winter. ♥ Take care of yourself.

  6. If falling out of bed were an Olympic sport, Jan would get a score of 10 from the Russian judge!
    (Hope you feel better and all those aches and pains are going away, Jan!)
    The handrail is spectacular!

  7. Wonderful! we'd be really pink if you can send those dudes here to help with some of the fixup jobs here...pawppy seems too busy to attend to them and petcretary says she doesn't know how to fix some of them...MOL/BOL!

    Glad your household issues were taken care of...and now we do not want to have any tails of falling down the back steps, OK?!

  11. Taylor & Micah,

    I'm so glad that Jan's tickled pink! It's always great when odd chores get taken care of and you don't have to worry about them anymore. The hand rail looks furtastic! Thanks for sharing such meowvalous mews!

  12. This gave me the giggles. Not the parts about getting bit by a spider or getting banged up but the tickled pink parts

  13. Wow! It's wonderful that the LL sent some of his workers to get things done around there. A good landlord is a treasure.

  14. Poor Jan, she gets a lot of bumps and bruises. I am glad the landlord made some repairs. I like that door knob.

  15. I can relate as I'm always bumping into things, falling down, etc. Glad that bannister is up now.

    P.S.: You asked about where Ruby was in our photos. We were at a pumpkin stand at a nearby church. They had wagons for people to carry their pumpkins to the car. There was also a large dog who scared Ruby so she was riding in the wagon.

  16. Oh! WOW! I would be tickled pink too! Rock on Funny Farmers!

  17. You have a good landlord! I'm tickled pink that your household problems have been solved, but not so pink about your various little ailments!

  18. That's life - swings and roundabouts! I hope your bad back, scratches etc heal quickly.

  19. Jan, I hope you're okay! Falling out of bed is NOT FUN. Yes we are settled and I was "away from my desk", haha, for a couple of days. But my paws are back, tipping tapping away on my new computer. Such fun.
    I hope so much you are not in pain with all these happenings! I, personally, am tickled pink about your stair-support (!) and the heaters being checked for the cold that's coming and all the other things your landlord did.
    HEY, it's about time!!!!
    LOULOU and famille

  20. Isn't it great to have peeps to help you out!
    Have a wonderful Wednesday...

    Noodle and crew

  21. Maybe the landlord should put a railing on Jan's bed too? Goodness she sure has more than her share of mishaps. We hope she's feeling better.

    That railing looks great, and it's nice to know the heaters are ready for cold weather,..and all the other things are pawsome too. Yep, we understand why Jan is tickled pink!

  22. We can understand about Jan being tickled pink! That's a whole lot of awesome repairs at your house. :)

  23. That's so pawsum!!! We're happy that Jan has all these new safety features and that she's pink. MOL Big hugs

    Luv ya'
