Who trains who

having had two much loved dogs, I was somewhat amused to hear my
friend's version of training her beagle. Apparently her leash became
tangled in the dog's paws. Over she went, sprawled on the grass. Dog
was so embarrassed, he licked her foot. Then tried to run away. After
all, he had his following to consider. He woke her next morning by
tearing off the blankets and woofing loudly. "OK" she mumbled". You
want to eat". Down they padded to the refrigerator. She was kneeling. 
Beagle trying to push her out of the way. Over she
went...again......Dog looking at her with great disdain. Having been
fed, my friend decided she might as well get ready for the office. Big
day, big meeting. So what if it was only 5 a.m. No, by golly, another
two hours of sleep was needed. Back to bed. Beagle was spread al over
the asleep.....More training definitely needed. ....for

Today's kids

I was showing them how to weave, Native American "dream catchers". Mark
broke down in tears. "What"s the matter honey?" I asked him. "I don't
have any dreams" he said. "They fly away when I wake up".That's OK" I
said. We'll just have fun with the yarn and beads.". After a few
minutes, I looked over at him. He was tangled up with the yarn and
looking very unhappy."Hey Mark< need aome help"? " You know what, I
think I think I'll skip sleeping tonight". Hugs got us over that one.


OK its a custom I have become used to, after yea many years over here.
There I was this past Thursday.. struggling with this huge bird. I
finally wrestled him..or her..into the oven.  Good show.   What to do
with the rest of the stuff. Oven aint big enough. Time to do the math. 
One in and the other out. Reverse the process. quick... Do not slide on
your ...on the way as you do the turkey trot into the kitchen and out
again. hello guests. Lovely to see you. Make yourselves comfy. Oops,
excuse me, Have to do a changeover. All ended well. But we definitely
need a bigger oven. Wait a minute. How about eating out next year?

So Who Knew

I like an occasional glass of wine, especially after a day of teaching.
But..and I do mean not ask me the finer elements of contents.
There I elegant in my little black dress at a recent party. A
lovely tall man with dimples flashing..asked how i liked the fragrance
of the something Noir. Oy.I was in trouble.Hmm. "it certainly has last
year's lot beat by a mile" says I. "This is last year's lot" he says'
Well" I flash him my very best wine lover's grin. "How clever of you".
I'd like to say he fell over bedazzled by my wit...but he suddenly
found he had to make a phone call. Oh well.

Cats who tolerate us

There's no doubt in my mind...not one smidgen. Cats put up with us.  They would write out menus ..if possible, and dictate who could enter
each door. They would drive to to the market, throw inedible food on  the floor, and tell the manager what not to stock. If..mind you... I
said if.....they live with a owe them..... Shrieks, when  Goliath first appears. I was lucky.....My dog,Lizzie, conveyed she was
their mother. and proceeded to lick their faces each time she saw her "puppies".   The 2 cats decided to ignore her. Maybe she'll leave. She  stayed,, For years. She developed diabetes, blindness. But still ate, woofed, and loved her "puppies". She eventually told us it was her time
to leave us.....The cats are still mourning her................
