Our Christmas ornaments are all stored in decorative tins, and in each tin is a paper upon which Mom has written everything that goes in there. (She's like that. And yes, for those of you who are wondering, the CDs and spices are alphabetized.) If an ornament was given by someone special, the person's name and the year are also recorded, to help Mom remember and smile when she thinks about a special friend or family member.
Here's one of the papers. Among other things, it mentions a paper window cut-out my daddy bought on REFORGER of '88. Umm... the scherenschnitte isn't in the tin anymore, though. Ummm...
Here I am, that first Christmas, posing with great-brother Booter and Stormy:
Umm... the paper cut-out thing?
My cute pose was so effective that Mom smiles every year when she reads that paper! Even though she knows I'm the pup who ate the paper thingy.
I keep a number of cute poses in my repertoire still. Just in case.
I'm a little angel!
So ... even if they do have the goods on you, as Zimmie said, keep a number of cute poses handy! Those capers will become sweet memories to your bipeds and will make them smile!
