Chetspeak on Sunday

We came back much more slowly, Shooter and I side by side, our tongues possibly hanging out the slightest bit. It’s also possible we had thorns of some sort in our coats – I was pretty sure I did – and Shooter had learned a hard lesson or two involving javelinas and those pesky tusks of theirs. But most of all we were filled with the feeling you get from a job well done, although what the actual job had been wasn’t super clear to me. Something about a Slim Jim? That seemed right. As we climbed over the crest of the last rise and came to our back gate – mine and Bernie’s – I wondered about the chances of another Slim Jim real soon. Pretty good, right? I could think of no reason why not.

    Hey…I want the rest of the mission that was posted last night. As is, it is a cliffhanger just like that blasted tv program, Rubicon, that was cancelled in the middle of the story. Grump….

    We wish all mothers lots of love, snuggles and devotion. Pay no attention to any fur that is shed. Its all about the love.

    And even though we always show Mama how much we adore her, she is leaving us. Yes, that’s right. She is abandoning us, deserting us, leaving us to the terrible evils of the world. We will be alone, all alone (except for The Storyteller and Gramp) with no one to feed us (except the Storyteller and Gramp) and no one to cuddle us, and tuck us into bed at night (except the Storyteller and Gramp). Something about her needing to see the desert and the mesas and eat green chili, morning, noon and night.
    Really? She would pick all that over two adorable Corgis? harumph!

    A perfect Mother’s Day gift, Royal Mum!
    We enjoyed four generations yesterday when Rachel and Hazel came to visit yesterday. Eleven months old. She is on the verge of walking and talking. She is her mother’s daughter, which means once she starts, she will never stop!

    That is a sweet purse. I am glad it was such a hit.

    I am still recovering from the visit from my friend. She was called in for an intervention in my quilt room. Once again all flat surfaces were covered. I think it is a Drew curse. We went through my flat surfaces with vengence.
    “Where does this belong? Do you have a spot for this? Will you ever use this? Did you ever use this?”
    OH my Dog!
    All the flat surfaces (including lots of the floor) were cleared. The only part not cleared was my quilt table. But it was left with only a few items and anyway my knees and feet were so exhausted that I had to force her to leave. (With frozen rhubarb, rhubarb sauce made fresh today and Chicken pasta salad for dinner)
    I have now had a nap and can stand up once more.

    dA friend who will do that for you is a wonderful true friend.

    Rio, Almost every day Mr.Fireslippers comes to tell me the sad tale of the Twinkies. He is very pessimistic. It is annoying to hear him droning on and on about the sad state of Twinkiedom. grump.
