Well Fer Cryin’ Out Loud, Mom Fell In The Fiber Again…

Do you see this? She’s got me shoved under
the table while she works on that blasted
“It’s NOT a snake, it’s a Rainbow Serpent
of the Dreamtime, a mythical creature,
part of an Aboriginal Creation Myth…”
Well, I don’t care what the heck it is, it wears
me out just thinkin’ about it. Last time you
made me help and we worked so hard we fell
asleep. Slave labor. A pug isn’t supposed to
have to work so hard for his treats…
And then the blasted spindles are all over the place and she’s a-spinnin’ like a crazy woman and we could break a leg around here trippin’ over them and she’d never stop spinnin’…

She said she was going to make me help wind
it all up in those weird shapes after it dries.
Have you seen the crazy mess she makes of
that yarn. I’ve got a bad heart. I’m on drugs.
Can’t she get the parrot to help? Just look at
this stuff. It scares me…

I’m gonna act sick…

Me too…

“Oh Sampson, Harvey, it’s time to sort the yarn. Let’s get moving. I’ve got a lot of work to do…”


I HEARD that!!! 

Harvey, let’s pretend we’re asleep. This might
work. Shut your eyes and be still….
I know you two aren’t asleep. Up and at ’em. We’ve got batts to make, and yarn to soak and I’ve got to get to work on Mellisandra, the serpent…

Sam? Harvey? We’ve only got 8 finished. Where are you? Boys? Sheesh, good labor is so hard to find. I’m going to go look for them. I’m sure they’re here somewhere…
… determined to find those pugs…

I think we’re doomed…

Make this the year your resolutions come true!
