And I’m talkin’ Capital T … R-O-U-B-L-E…
Yep, unfortunately ye olde casa which is Spanish for house seems to be in need of repairs and Help Is On The Way this week. Naturally the old woman Slow has Peep Cousins who can handle the situation since she has cousins everywhere in the state of Texas and they can do ANYTHING. If you don’t believe it, just ask her or, better yet, you probably won’t even have to if you hang around her for any length of time. She’s forever talking about her cousin so-and-so from such-and-such-a-place. Ad nauseum. Whatever.
At any rate the thing is she’s gone and IMPORTED these two cousins from Navasota and they loaded up the Dodge Dakota with a truckload of machines and tools and extension cords and two sawhorses named Jack and Jill and drills and paintbrushes and a whole conglomeration of God knows what all and here she comes driving them right up in the driveway yesterday. The plan seems to be they’re MOVING in with us while they work on the house. That’s right. You heard me. TWO MEN are moving in with Slow and me and Spike and we think it might be for a couple of weeks. Yessiree, this is Plan A and I wasn’t even consulted before it was implemented. Personally, I’m worried and hope we have a Plan B figured out because I think Plan A has DISASTER written all over it. I don’t like to be a Negative Nellie, though, until we reach the Point of No Return and it’s too late to steer the ship away from the iceberg. Remember how Everybody thought the Titanic movie was a Love Story? The Red Man knew all along it was about a shipwreck.
Well, things are off to somewhat of a rocky start because it turns out Spike doesn’t like the Visitors. Nope. Doesn’t like them at all. As a matter of fact, every time Cousin JPeep makes a move, Spike growls at him and his hackles go up. Spike’s, that is. I’m embarrassed for us and tried to make up for it by being Mr. Nice Guy which is not the easiest role for moi. We are tiptoeing perilously close to the edge here on the very first day, if you catch my drift.
Of course, Timing is Everything and the Peep Cousins caught Spike on an off week.
Yeah, the Big Guy took a trip to the Santa Claus Vet and came back home missing a few parts. Actually two parts. Heh, heh. Welcome to Club Nutless, Spikester Man. Entertainment courtesy of Dr. Feel Good.
Get me outta here, Percy…it’s the weekend and my Sports Fans have their own Plans and The Red Man hopes they all get to stick with their Plan As…
