Our Mother Is Working On A Blog Entry, Heaven Help Us All…

Heaven Help Us All… 
Our mother is working on a blog entry. Let me put this another way. She started it three times, chucked it, started over. God help her she gets in these “deep thinking” moods. I told her that she has writer’s block. She said she had no such thing and if I said that I wouldn’t get a treat. It’s hard enough to get treats around here. I wasn’t about to tempt fate.
You see, the thing is, she is wrestling with a book, staying up until all hours and reading and making notes and moaning and wailing — it’s pitiful really — and we can’t go to bed until she does so I’m crowded in the chair with her while she fidgets and I’m trying to sleep but really, the way she talks to herself and talks at the book she is reading and gets up — we’re hopeful at this point she’s getting up so we can all go to bed — she just goes in and makes tea and she’s back at it. 
She’s a pretty good mother but she’s driving us batty. She said she’ll get the new blog entry up over the weekend. Harvey mumbled something like, “Actions speak louder than words,” and she told him his treats were in peril too. It doesn’t do to try to be helpful around here. 
So I just thought I’d let you know that she hasn’t fallen off the planet and there is a blog entry on the horizon, and I hope to God she gets up long enough to feed us, if she remembers us at all. 

Sampson, long-suffering pug…
