Creative Solutions

Woo, everypup and everycat.  It's me - Dave.  As you might have heard by now, our dad was out of town for a while - I'm here to let you know that my kid brother Zim and I took really, really good care of Mom while he was on his trip.  I thought I'd share how we worked together to keep things on an even, happy keel.  Ready to take a look?

Saturday night, we settled in to watch our Kansas State Wildcat football team take on West Virginia!  I helped Mom turn the TV on and we settled in to watch what would be quite the decisive victory!

"Woo!  Go 'Cats!  And ... how 'bout a tummy rub?"

I got up to get a beverage and when I got back ...

"Hey, Dave.  The 'Cats scored again!"

Wait a minute!

"That's my mom ... and my quilt ... and my kid brother?!?"

Haven't we already been down this road?  

Then I realized Zim was just making sure Mom wasn't lonely, since Dad wasn't there and I was out getting my liquid refreshment ... for all of 2 minutes.  But now ... what to do?

"Wait a minute!  I have an idea!"

Being the creative guy that I am, I came up with an idea that worked out great:

I think we were all happy with that one!

  6. MOL! It's a good thing that moms turn into pretzels to please us! We watched that game too!

  7. Hi Dave, You guys take such good care of your mom-really and I'm sure your dad is happy that he doesn't have to worry while he is gone. Have a great evening; it is sunny here now and most of the snow has melted, so it should stop soon for you too.

  11. Good work Dave to come up with such a great solution to your problem. I wish I had you here with me that night to comfort me as my beloved Mountaineers went down in flames. I had to stop watching in the third quarter. I guess that makes us rivals now.

  13. There is always room for one more!
