It's Thursday meowning
and I've had two cups of coffee so far.
The little darling, Jodie,
is being very consistent on waking me up at four thirty.
Why can't she make it to five thirty or even better, six.
Oh, six would be so nice.
Anyway, I get up with her.
She looks at me with such excitement.
Seriously, you haven't lived til you see her face each meowning.
After they come in, Maddy Jean and Jodie,
back we go to bed.
Yes, I lift her up,
and with this old back that's not an easy task.
She settles in between my pillow and Mr. Boatman's.
Snug as can be.
Ashton or Al, depending on who's on the bed at the time,
do a mean look at her, cause they're old and do that.
And, before long we are all cozy for a while.
Then, Mr. Boatman gets up and we get up
and our meowning starts.
Thus, the need for lots and lots and lots of coffee.
As I mentioned, today is Thursday
and it's marked on my calender.
You guessed it, it's Puppy Class Day.
We tried to do our homework. Really we did.
Only it's hard to practice outside in the rain or snow.
So, I fear that we will not look good today at class.
Nope, not at all.
I think it's a certainty that we are flunking puppy class.
And, it's only the third class.
I need a stunt double.
So, as the meowning goes on and I look at the clock.
I am not happy to go to class.
Jodie did not learn to come or down.
Nope, she didn't.
I did though.
Enjoy your Thursday,
~ JC and Maddy Jean and Jodie and Riley ~
