Budd, Shoko and Tyebe I have something to tell you. Ya, is it about our food. I know you’re going to give us more. I can run all over the counters NOW. Is that it? These two will have to stay away from me when I’m sleeping? It’d be hard to enforce though. No, everybody’s wrong. What? I’m going to have to go for a pit stop so I won’t be home for a day or so. OMC!! Who will feed me….I mean us? I’ll starve. I’m not used to fending for myself anymore. Besides eating garbage is awful. Dad is going to make sure you’re all fed. Oh my, he doesn’t add gravy like you do and he doesn’t tell us what we’re eating. He doesn’t know how! Yes, he does. He’ll start feeding you now so he can ask questions. Well, I don’t know about this idea.
Not bad! What is it, dad? It’s liver and chicken. Really? Hmmm… lots of gravy. Not bad dad. Gee, thanks Shoko.
Hey mom what’s this pit stop for? Well, seems I need retreading as the left tire is getting worn out. Ya, you do walk rather slowly. Is this why you aren’t outside building a snowman this year, mom? Your bang on, Shoko. Can’t you just get another tire? It’s even more work and time in the hospital if I get a new tire/ankle replacement. What’s that place called a Ho spit all? Doesn’t sound like a very nice place. You heard of it, Budd? No, but I wouldn’t want to go anywhere if they’re going to spit on me. We’d rather have you here, mom. Just think in about 6 weeks I’ll be able to walk with the best of them. THAT LONG! That’s like a year from now! I’ll be old. No, Tyebe it’s only a month and a half.
How long will you be in this horrible ho! spit all? Will you forget us? I could never forget you three and dad. I hope to be there overnight and then home. That’s not bad so then you’ll be feeding us again? No, I’ll have to stay in bed for a wee while and then I’m not supposed to walk about very much while my foot heals. Well, I don’t care for this lying around a bit. Will you play with us like you usually do? Of course I will, but you’ll have to come to me on the bed and play. We can do that.
I’m going to take your Christmas gift with me to the Ho! spite all….I mean hospital, Tyebe. Wow!! Really. So you really like the seagulls. I sure do, my passion is seagulls after cats of course. Those seagulls have Tyebe written all over them. When I hear them I’ll think of you immediately.
Can we visit you, mom? Really, I don’t think you’d like it there Tyebe. They frown upon playing and biting cords and hoses. Budd, they don’t share food either. Shoko you dislike people you don’t know so none of you would care for it. Sounds like a disgusting place. When do you go? Tuesday morning. That’s pretty quick so Wednesday afternoon you should be home with us again. Yep and believe me I’ll be delighted to come home.
Friends I won’t be around much but when I can again get to the computer, I’ll be anxious to read your posts and have a good ole yak with you.
