Scenettes (Little Scenes)

Domingo the gardener was watering one of the bushes as we came up the path, and Malcolm was supervising.

“Hi, there,” he said. “Hey, Domingo, make a rainbow for Charlie.”

Domingo moved the hose around until a rainbow appeared in the spray.

“See that?” Malcolm said.

“Yeah,” said Charlie.

“Okay,” Malcolm said, “now make the pot of gold.”

Domingo looked a little confused, but Malcolm laughed – not the best laugh I’d ever heard, maybe needing some oil, if that makes any sense – and Domingo started laughing, too.

“Pot of gold,” Domingo said. “That’s funny.”

    Rio: We can post your photos. We have become quite adept at altering photos to free them of any incriminating evidence. We’d be happy to do that for your photos. No charge…

    Good day everyone. Any snippets of writing from OFA is more than welcomed.

    I’ve been sitting by Sadie on the floor multiple times a day and stroking her flanks and massaging her back legs. She enjoys it and it seems to be helping her mobility. After observing this for a while, three days ago Mr. Big started plopping down on the other side of me expecting the same treatment. Sadie Bear is not happy about sharing her “Mommy and Me” time.

    Boo Bear: I don’t know how your mom does it with all her many and assorted pets. Her one heart may be big enough for everyone but she only has two hands!

    Below accounts the valor demonstrated by Rio and Mother during the storm:

    Here are the first four photoz of the Big 2020 Tree Slaughter in my neighborhood…snort!…I’ve heard it looks this way and worse throughout the whole town…gasp!

    Beginning!… It was a normal day, Mother and I were on the couch eating cheetos, those crunchy kind which are hard for both of us to eat because of our teeth…grunt!.. . It got really dark out and Mother turned the channel from our favorite Soap to the weather channel….gasp!…There was a big ball of RED and even REDDER coming toward us!…yeeep!…She yelled, “Closet!!!”

    Closet!…She threw everything out of the closet and we hurried in. My tail just made it…gah!…We heard the wind and then the very loud SNAPPING sound of the big tree out from whirling off and then we did not hear it land on the house….gulp!…Let me tell youse there were fireworks going off in that closet for at least a half hour. Mother becomes very gassy when she is stressed out. I endured by putting my nose to the floor boards and breathing in some fresh air…..wheeze!…She had the gall to say, “Rio! Quit farting!…As if!!!…yelp!

    OUT!….When the sound of breaking trees stopped we poured out of the closet in a big blue plume of bad air. Then we looked outside and saw my friend making her way up the street under all the fallen electric wires….yeeep!…After that came 7 days of hell with no electric and no hope of ever getting back to normal…wheeze!

    Bah!….I have bad memories of all of that!…grunt!…And then people started driving around the neighborhoods to check out the damage…Gawkers!…But my tree was hanging on those big wires by a nubbin and every time someone drove thru the carnage (even after the City put up cones!) we were worried the limb would snap off and cause more damage. Even pull more wires down..wheeze!

    Neighbor!…My neighbor across the street was standing outside yelling at people who were driving thru the cones and over the limbs. He was saying, “I Got yer license plate numbers you stupid SOB asshole!”…heh!…Worse language than that in reality. So while my friend and Mother were out back trying to clean up what they could I ran across the street to stand with my neighbor, who is my hero now…snort!….He would yell and curse and I would punch my paw in the air just to make the point stronger….grump!growl!
