Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and welcome to Thursday, January 12th, 2012.

How are you this morning?

I am great ….. (Alvin decided to wake me up at 4:10 this morning to go outside to pee).

So definitely more wide awake now at 6:20 a.m.

I just received a phone call from my daughter …. it was a call that I believe to be unique ….

It definitely was a call that I never thought about receiving in a million years.

She might call me to say that they are going to be a bit late or perhaps to bring a piece of jewelry or something.

But this was an odd request and even more odd was the reason why.

You see my dog Alvin (her little brother) has this thing ….. he likes to get his teeth wrapped around these ….

He has damaged beyond use ….. some of mine …..

Amanda had told me that he had done the same to some of hers….

Can you guess what she requested to borrow this morning?

Well here it is….

A PAIR OF SOCKS.

It would seem that her brother while visiting has put holes in most of her socks.

So while you are holding your tummy’s rolling around the floor laughing …. I am just smiling.

Alvin has this thing for socks.

He will attempt when given the slightest of opportunities to pull socks out of the laundry basket.

You see mine is one of the tall ones that has “holes” in it (I guess to keep the dirty laundry smell permeating your closet) LOL ….

It is cute to watch him but unfortunately the socks do not last long in the grip of his long canine teeth ….

So I grabbed some “unholy” socks for Amanda to borrow…… she will buy some new ones today.

Have a great day everyone …… always good to have a giggle before starting your work day or any day ….

Special Hello:  to Amanda, my daughter who has patience and a great sense of humour.

Always, Carol

    Hello to you too mom. Yes, I was surprised to find that I had no socks left without holes this morning! Thanks for the loan, I bought some lovely new one’s at Winner’s today and I will try to keep them away from my brother.
