Looks innocent, doesn’t he?
Morrie’s New Adventure–Epilogue, Continued.
(To see earlier episodes of the adventures of Morrie, go HERE and HERE.) When last we saw our furry fiend, uh, friend, there were three mysteries left unresolved: why were the curtains tied up in a knot, why was the sewing machine now out in the hall, and what was in his mouth? I just need to add three more elements to the mystery.
Why are the handmade dolls formerly hanging from the curtain rod now lying in a heap on an upper shelf?
Why is the CD player/radio Yolanda listens to while ironing
in the (former) guest bedroom now in the bathroom?
and just what is this in the waste paper basket?
My old style phone that I use when the electricity goes out? What is it doing there? All of these mysteries will be solved as you get a look at the scene that faced me when I opened Morrie’s door last night. (For those of you who haven’t seen earlier episodes, Morrie needed to be put in seclusion following surgery of a delicate nature that we won’t go into here. Suffice it to say that the doctor suggested I keep him quiet and away from the other dogs, so I cleared out the guest room [more or less] and had an extra gate put up on the side of this room to afford him a small exercise area and since he easily fits through the security bars, I left the door and screen cracked to let him in and out.)
Okay, back to our story. The time is early yesterday evening and yes, I was blogging. I heard a very loud BANG and surprise! It was coming from the direction of Morrie’s room.
This is the scene that greeted me when I opened the door.
The curtains were down.
As was the very heavy copper rod that held them up.
The dolls formerly hanging from the rod were in a heap on the floor
As was the telephone,
Which, thanks to Morrie, I have now retired.
(You’ve already seen the final resting place for the phone.)
Eyeing the cord to the sewing machine and Yolanda’s radio/CD player, I knew they could only be next, so the boom box was relegated to the bathroom and as you know, the sewing machine was relegated to the hall. And this is how the room’s contents shrunk by yet another third.
Are you sorry for this, Morrie? Morrie?
Morrie seems to be heading for something, but I’m not sure what. Okay, Morrie, time out. Want to come to bed with your mom for awhile and KEEP OUT OF TROUBLE?
Okay, I know you didn’t mean to do it, so let’s have a little loving and then Mom needs to get back to work on her blog, okay? You just stay down there and no more licking, okay? You already licked all the lotion off my face and neck and hands..but I’m kind of squeamish, so no more licking? okay? We’ll play again after I get the blog posted! Uh, Morrie? I can’t see the computer with your head there, okay? Can you watch me from just a little further away? Okay, just one more rub and then . . . Go lie a little further away, okay? And stay there okay? Are you okay with that, Morrie? Feeling happy to be in bed with Mom? Isn’t that enough, Morrie? Okay, boy, you’re getting a little too close for comfort again, and ooops! There goes my computer, let me just grab it here, and. . .
Okay, fine. Lick my feet for awhile. Just don’t come up here
and drool on my computer again, okay?
And–here he is again! Do you have any hint about why it is taking me two days to post this post?
Okay, Morrie, let’s go find you a toy! How about my rubber duck with a cowboy hat, Morrie? What do you think about him? Your toys all seem to be gone!
Ah, you like him, huh, Morrie? That’s right. Lick the duck!!!!
But, don’t eat him, okay, Morrie?
Did you hear what I said, Morrie? Do what my mother used to tell us to do with gum, and just hold him in your mouth!!
Morrie! Look what you’ve done!
You’ve not only bitten off cowboy duck’s cowboy hat, you’ve chewed off his whole head! Where is it, Morrie? Oh my God! Did you eat it?
Okay, Morrie, you’re looking kind of crazy, now. Calm down and give it here! Morrie! Morrie! Don’t snap at your mother!!! Give it here!!!
Oh, poor rubber duckie. Nothing left but his kerchief and vest!
So you feed bad about what, Morrie? Because you killed the rubber duck
or because you didn’t get to finish him off?
Definitely, not innocent!!!
I’m hoping these pictures are odd enough to qualify for Cee’s oddball challenge this week. See her own and other oddballs HERE.
