Hey, Mom, you brought me some great little mousies and some more balls home tonight, but you didn't play with me like you always do.
Karen Jo: I'm sorry, Herman, but I just didn't have the energy tonight. I'll make it up to you tomorrow.
But you just play with me for a little while and then you leave.
Karen Jo: I have three days off for Thanksgiving, Herman, so I will have lots of time to play with you.
Yay! That sounds great to me. Will we be having something yummy for Thanksgiving?
Karen Jo: I'll be having roast beef and baked potato and salad and you will be having chicken with broth.
I have decided that roast beef is yucky, so I'm glad that you have chicken for me.
Karen Jo: I know. You didn't eat any of it the last time I gave you some. It's too bad you didn't think to teleport it over to Roxy before it got all dried up.
I am glad that you brought me some more balls to play with. Most of the ones I had disappeared.
Karen Jo: I noticed that. Only the purple one with pink spots was left. Is that because it is your favorite?
Sheesh, Mom, that one was left because I only play with it when I can't find the others. What happened to the other ones?
Karen Jo: I don't know, Herman. I suspect that you chased them under the dishwasher or the refrigerator. I will look for them sometime soon.
Will you get me some mousies like the ones that Gracie likes?
Karen Jo: Yes, Herman. I have seen them at the store, but I am staying in for the next three days, so it will be a while before you get any more new toys.
Aw, shoot. I love getting new toys, even the lame ones like you brought home last night. I didn't even play with them much.
Karen Jo: But this morning you discovered that the fuzzy weasel has a rattle inside and then you liked it.
Yeah, I guess it's not so lame after all. Hey, I like the snuggle you put in the chair. It was just right for my nap this afternoon.
Karen Jo: That makes me happy, Herman. I got that snuggle in an auction. I think DKM made it to help raise money for Lilly Lu, Iris and MuShue after the fire. I know that it is called The Lilly Lu. I was hoping even then that I would have a kitty some day who would enjoy it. I hope that you will nap on it again when I have time to take a picture.
You know I don't pose for the camera, but maybe it will happen.
