Hello everyone; yes, once again it is I, Chess the purebred border collie, here to bring you the latest and most exciting news from our garden. You may remember me from such posts as “Making A List” (where the guy I live with made me wear a red bandana), and “Season’s Greetings”, my last post, where I had to wear antlers and look like a fool.
There really isn’t anything much to say about today, as usual, because hardly anything happened. The guy I live with spent a lot of time out on the patio, sawing and nailing. He made a box.It took him an awfully long time to make this box, but he said that the particle board was really old and something else (I stopped listening right about then), but what this is, in case you were wondering, is a mold for troughs. He gave away the one that my mommy made for him (he’s not sure why he did that, but he’s done a lot of things he’s not sure why he did), and so today he made another one.
He says he still has to make the inner mold, and maybe he’ll do that tomorrow. That will be exciting, I’m sure. We definitely are right on the cutting edge, if you’ll pardon the pun, of excitement here.
In fact, just look at what he got as a Christmas present.If you’re thinking this is a bucket, you would be exactly right. He got a bucket for Christmas. He said maybe we shouldn’t show this, because so many people would be jealous, but somehow I think it’ll be okay. It’s true that not everyone has a bucket, but then, not everyone gets to live with a purebred border collie, either.
Oh, there is one thing that he said was pretty interesting. Out of curiosity he went into the shade garden (on the north side of the house) to look at things, the way he does sometimes, and lo and behold, there were snowdrops coming up.It isn’t like winter is over or anything, but at least now the guy I live with has something to talk about. So long as he doesn’t talk to me about it, things will be fine.
That’s really all for today. The main thing, here, was to show me without antlers. I did that, and so now I’ll say goodbye.
Until next time, then.
