Greetings, everyone, it is I, Chess the purebred border collie. You may remember me from such enjoyable posts as “Dogs” and “No One Cares But Me”. I’ll be your host for tonight’s program. (I’ve wanted to say that for a while now.)
(That thing behind me is the ramp my mommy built for my grandpa Flurry when he was old and creaky, and it’s been here ever since.) Anyway it was hot.
The guy I live with left me at home again today, supposedly to get me some food he forgot to buy yesterday, but for some reason he also came home with a whole bunch of little bluestem plants. So some genuine gardening did take place today. I was inside because it was so hot.
The guy I live with got a new cord for his iPod, so now he wanders around with the iPod, waving his arms, and not paying much attention to anything. Funny story about the iPod. My mommy got it as a Christmas present a long time ago, and she didn’t know what to do with it, and neither did the guy I live with, and he knows about computers. The thing sat there kind of like the black slab in the movie 2001 (he rented that movie just a few months ago and said that he saw it when it first came out but now it’s a total yawn), with both of them just looking at it wondering what to do.
Eventually the guy I live with remembered the First Law of Computers, which is, if you didn’t know, when in doubt, plug the thing in, and all of a sudden he had a working iPod.
So, that’s probably why it came as a complete surprise that there was a nest of blue jays in the yard. This afternoon, he went onto the patio and there were two baby blue jays, which he claimed were cute, and took their pictures. I’ve been instructed to show them. They aren’t as cute as I was when I was little, but, after all, I set new standards for total cuteness. Anyway, here they are.
I guess they’re cute. That’s it for today.
