Nice Job!

Ha roo, pups and kit-cats!  It's me, Zim.  Wowzers, was yesterday a busy day!  As Dave told you, we scheduled a truck to dump a big pile of mulch in the driveway for Mom and Dad to spread in the garden.  Sure enough, the nice man showed up right on time, "first thing" in the morning.  (Not "first thing" as far as my schedule goes, but in biped work hours terms.)  Dave and I went out to inspect the mulch and to offer Mom and Dad a few words of encouragement.

"Wowzers, Dave!  That's a lot of mulch!"
"Does this mean Mom will be out here all day instead of with me?" 

Dave was obviously concerned about Mom doing too much hard work.  He thought maybe he could help out.

"I can dig it!"

Mom didn't want Dave to do too much, though, so ... what can I say? Rather than supervise, I thought I'd get a little more involved.

"OK... so if we take some of this and ..."

"... put it in here ... about 7.2 million times ..."

Sounded like a good idea!  So ... having shared that advice with Dad ...

"Alrighty then!  I'll be in the house if you need anything else!"

My advice worked so well, in fact, that when Mom came in to get lunch for me and Dave, Dad called the nursery place and asked them to send another truck full of mulch over.  That's right - another full load!  Dave and I had lunch, a short walk, then got right back to work - supervising from inside the air-conditioned house.  It was exhausting ... but when Mom came in a few hours later and announced that they were done, I owed it to her and Dad to go out and inspect.

"Oh... nice!  Nice and fluffy and cooling!"

It's important to praise and encourage your bipeds when they've done a good job.  Of course ...

"Ha roo!"

...we all know they couldn't have done it without Dave and me!

Play bows,
Zim

  18. Wow that's lots of mulching done in one day. My Grandma gets those mulch piles and hires men to move it around, though it takes them several days. Your Mom and Dad did a great job! Thanks to your supervision of course :)

  20. In my humble Marvin opinion, Bi-peds need lots of praise and regular rewards so that their work is up to scratch. Training them is real hard, but you both seem to be doing an excellent job!!
