Many of you have said really nice things about our deck - thank you so much for the compliments! Our little Sibe buddy Marley was confused by a comment he heard his mom make! He told us, "My Mom thinks that your deck is the 'cat's pajamas'. What?!?!?!" Oooh, yeah. I've heard this expression! And the cat's meow or cat's whiskers! VERY confusing, this biped language! The cat's pajamas is an American expression that came about in the 1920s - in the jazz-age, flapper era. It was used to describe a wonderful or stylish person or thing. They used a lot of "different" expressions in the '20s! Some guy named Stuart Flexner, in I Hear America Talking, wrote about similar expressions, "...just about any combination of an animal, fish, or fowl with a part of the body or article of clothing that was inappropriate for it: the bee's knees, the snake's hips, the clam's garter, the eel's ankle, the elephant's instep, the tiger's spots, the leopard's stripes, the sardine's whiskers, the pig's wings." I can only begin to think about how this is going to make Marvin's and Amber's heads spin. Ha roo roo roo! Marley, apparently your mom's comment really has nothing to do with felines in PJs - but was a lovely compliment! Please tell her thank roo for us!

Maybe your mom could look for the special elixir my mom gives me? It really helps me out.
I hope that clears up the confusion, Marley and China! And Lola ... maybe Tubey will be elected president. If he is, he is going to ban thunder and lightening!
Keep those cards and letters coming, pups!
