Another one of those pleasant experiences with my sweet son . . hurry up and take the darned picture . . I have things to do . . places to go . . people to see! I’m so proud of Chad! He loves politics . . no, that doesn’t make me so proud. But, he decided to work at the polls for our election today. He gets paid but, because I’m a proud mom, I choose to think he’s doing it because he thinks it’s a good thing to do.. civil service he says. In my heart, I know that he’s doing it because he gets to wear a dress shirt and his new cuff links that he found recently while he and Vince were checking out all the flea markets in SW MO. YES! Chad . . go shopping with Vince while I stay home!
For Chad to be up and dressed by 5:15 a.m., there may also be a cute girl involved but he hasn’t mentioned that . . yet!
And, this poor, spoiled dog! The only thing all this scurrying around at 5 a.m. could possibly mean to Speck . . he thinks I’m going out of town so he immediately began shaking and has thrown up three times. Looks like he’s calmed down a bit now but he won’t dare let me out of his sight. It’s so nice to be loved! (not really — I hate that he makes himself sick when he thinks I’m leaving him.) Too bad Vince doesn’t feel that way or I’d never have to go shopping again! 🙂
If you’re wondering why his pillow has no pillow case . . he gets inside the pillow case and then when he hears something he needs to investigate, he can’t get out of the pillowcase quickly enough. It isn’t real safe to have a dachshund blindly running up the stairs while inside the pillowcase with the pillow.
Vince will be out of town most of the day which means . . as soon as he leaves, Speck and I are headed back to bed!
And . . there he goes!
