Greyhound Humor: Tucson Drama Queen

Fans, it’s been awhile. Mama Karyn doesn’t let me near the computer. Now she’s on FaceBook and wastes more time than usual. Is that possible?

Last week I counter surfed and scored a delicious treat – span-a-ko-pita, but more about that later.

It’s been a long hot summer. Did I say hot, hot, hot? I had to wear my Storm Defender cape a lot because it lightened and thundered but that did not always bring rain.

Mama Karyn is nuts. I always thought so but now it’s confirmed.

One night when it was raining really hard, mama Karyn went outside on the patio wearing only a t-shirt and panties and danced around…by herself.

She wanted me to come too but no way. She was laughing and yelling, “RAIN BABY RAIN.” What will the neighbors think? She came back in the house soaking wet, wrapped herself in a towel, and drank a beer. I just looked on in disgust. Is that any way for an aging baby boomer to act? Where’s the AARP police when you need them?

But back to moi – Once a month, I go to see Dr. Janet at Sunrise Pet Clinic  for my acupuncture and cold laser therapy treatment. I am happy to report that my beautiful back legs have not splayed for two months.

In July, mama Karyn went on a vacation…without me. Marilyn my dog sitter stays with me when mama Karyn leaves. Marilyn is truly my love slave. She massages me twice a day and continually grooms me and adores me unlike Karyn who mostly just ignores me. We sit outside a lot because Marilyn smokes like a chimney.

One day Marilyn came over and I panicked. I thought mama Karyn was leaving but I didn’t see her packing. I thought she was trying to trick me but Marilyn just visited. Phew!

Lots of stuff has been happening to the house. Karyn’s messy office is now in another room – it’s still messy. She told me I might not like the changes but we’ll have to wait and see. Lots of strangers have been here to fix or alter this or that.

Now back to counter surfing which is a hobby of mine. Last week, one of Karyn’s many friends – Ditte Lokon — came over and brought homemade span-a-ko-pita. Can you believe they sat there in front of me and ate them? Even though I SAT there politely and watched, nobody offered me a taste? How rude!

Then they rushed out. When Karyn rushes, she forgets stuff. She left a span-a-ko-pita in a Ziploc bag on the counter. I couldn’t open the bag so I chewed through it. Yum………..it was layers of buttery goodness.

The next day Karyn wanted to eat it for breakfast and she looked all over the refrigerator. She found remnants of the plastic bag on my dog bed and just shook her head. She’s not the only gourmand in the family.

Ta Ta for now

Love you, mean it

  2. In the almost 10 years that Lily has lived with me, she has only gained 4 pounds. I wish I could say the same for myself. 🙂

    Here is a secret. Lilly is one step ahead of Karyn.

  4. Love it — the rain dance, the spanikopita stealing… what a cast of characters! Frankie’s too short to counter surf so maybe I’ll invite Ditte over and hint heavily about how a gift of spanikopita would be welcome….
