Out and About
Karen Jo: I need to keep up with the little mats before they become big mats. I got one out of your chest fur today, but it took me three tries. You keep squirming away from me. Tomorrow I will go after the one on your foreleg. It beats me how you can get a mat in the short fur on your foreleg.
I am just talented that way. Mom deserted me for the first time since she got sick.
Karen Jo: I had to go to the store. I was going to go out again, but decided that it was too cold.
What was that yummy stuff you were making in the kitchen after you got back?
Karen Jo: I am going to a Christmas party tomorrow and needed to make a snack. I made a Braunschweiger ball and boy, were you interested.
It all smelled so good that I just had to have some.
Karen Jo: I let you have a few licks of the Braunschweiger/Neufchatel mix before I added the seasonings.
It was really good. I want some more.
Karen Jo: Sorry, Herman, but it's for the party. If there is some left over, I will bring it home, but you still won't be able to have any more.
Karen Jo: I added onion and horseradish and bourbon to it. None of that is any good for you.
Rats. If you eat any of it in front of me, you better be prepared for lots of begging. Not much else happened today. I curled up on the couch with Mom while she read after her chores were done. I love the way she pets me while she reads. She even put the book down and just petted me for a while. Then she found the mat on my foreleg and I left when she reached for the little scissors.
