Working in the Studio

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  The other day, Mom went downstairs to do some work in her Studio.  I decided I should go down and help - or at the very minimum, supervise.

Mom sat on the floor, with all of her equipment around her and got down to business.  I got busy, too.

Me.  With my pickle.  In the Studio.

I only get access to my pickle when Mom can be right beside me. You know the deal - something about "chunks", "teeth of steel", "don't swallow the pieces", blah, blah, and blah! Anyway, I got bored after a short while and gave Mom my pickle.

"Here's my pickle, Mom."

She said she was getting bored, too.  I asked her what she was doing, and she said she was ripping zippers out of stuff she was tossing so she could recycle them.  "Ripping"?!!?  That sounded like awesome fun to me, so I told Mom we should switch jobs.  She could play with my pickle and I could ...

"A seam ripper?  Can't I just use my teeth?"

I think we had both had enough by then.  We just sort of hung out together for a while.

"Hey, has anybody seen my glasses?"

That's my imitation of my mom.  Ha roo roo roo!

We hope to get back down there today.  I love working in the Studio!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. Oh, that's a good imitation of your mom. We bet you totally nailed it.

  2. you are such a good helper - what would your Mom do without you

  3. Have you ever tasted glasses before? Stanley loves them!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  4. Maggie your help and your pickle are priceless I'm sure. Now about the seam ripper...OMCs I'm not allowed in the same room with mom when she uses hers BECAUSE it normally means she has made a gigantic boo boo on a garment and she uses HBO words. Dad says they are not suitable for my delicate Diva ears.

  8. Bol. Ripping sounds like a great activity. Whenever we rip our toys, we get the NoNo words. Humans can be so perplexing.
