Holy Tearer (For Forgottenman, who requested another Zoe post)

Click on photos to enlarge.

You won’t recognize the object of the tug-of-war between Zoe and me in the first photo, but it is my shirt sleeve. You might, however, recognize the pillow made out of my childhood drapes material that a friend recently gave to me, minus the big chewed hole recently added. Guess how that got there? Zoe has turned into a holy tearer for sure. I guess it is the terrible twos!!!!

If you don’t remember the story of how I came to be gifted the swatch of material that is the exact copy of the drapes in the house I grew up in, click on this link:

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    We all had bark cloth drapes in our childhood houses, I think. In mine were giant cabbage roses. My Aunt Dickie had the same as your family. When Bear was a puppy (Zoe is about as big as Bear’s head) I named her “Shredder.” Her favorites were the cartons soda comes in and cardboard boxes. We subscribed to Barkbox and after she decimated the toys, she went for the boxes.

      Zoe loves toilet paper rolls and Kleenex. I was down in the hammock until after dark tonight and when I decided to go up to the house, she had stolen my shoes! I can’t even walk on smooth surfaces barefoot anymore because the bones protrude out of the bottom of my feet. It was excruciating walking up to the house on brick sidewalks in the dark. Poor me. I’ll have to look for my shoes tomorrow. They could be anywhere in the lawn or bushes. Martha, did you mean barkcloth drapes or is that a typo? These aren’t of bark cloth.
