Another new friend

There was a big sale. Betty stocked up.

I don’t want to talk about it

Because it was terrible.

I know – I know – there was a friend in the backyard last night wanting to play with me. We all knew. I begged and cried and pleaded with Betty to let me out. She refused (she’s stone cold). So I went to Poppy to make my case; he just kept snoring. I never got to play with what I’m sure would have been a wonderful new friend, based on the noise in the yard.

I’m just so disappointed.

Again?

At some point we’re going to have to make the bed.

Nesting

In a blanket-and-pillow fort of her own making.

New friend

It doesn’t matter how old you get – new toys are always exciting.

Meet Pinky the Flamingo.

She said, she said

How it all went down, according to Pickles:

Jessica Rabbit escaped! Thank goodness she didn’t get far before I was able to retrieve her and bring her back into the house, right at Betty’s feet. Everyone was very relieved.

When’s lunch?

Now for Betty’s take:

When Pickles doesn’t think she’s receiving enough attention, she tries to entice us by running into the backyard with inside toys, expecting a lively chase. But today, there was no choice. Piks got tired of waiting, so she brought Jessica back inside on her own.

Can you really be a hero if you were also the bunny-napper?

Undeterred

There is a universal truth – that there is a particular order to things. When that order is broken – violated, even – one must quickly decide how to react.

One can embrace the change.

Or, one can plow through and restore the order to its original state.

Poppy is sitting in Pickles’ daytime chair, thereby forcing her to make a decision.

Order will be restored.
