Yeah, But I Made Mom Laugh!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  So, yeah.  Cam showed you how her portrait sitting went yesterday -- is she a supermodel or WHAT?!?  Awesome talent.  But we all bring gifts to the party, right?  They're just ... different gifts!  Anyway ...

I had a photoshoot, too.  I gave Mom this great pose:

"I don't think you really HAVE treats, Mom."

... but she wanted more. Come ON! It was perfect! I sat. I looked at the camera. What more could she want?!?  She said I had that "skeptical look" on my face.  Ha.  "Skeptical"?!?  I'll give her "skeptical"!

"Oh, reeeeeeally?"

That was perfect, wasn't it?  Seriously.  I've been watching Homicide Hunter: Lt. Joe Kenda, and I think I've got his skeptical look down-pat!

So apparently that wasn't the look Mom was after, so we moved over to another area of the yard.  Fine with me.

"Mmm... that breeze!  I smell ... pancakes!"

That's kind of supermodel-ish, isn't it?  Gazing off into the distance?  Right?  Mom kept shooting.

"Or wait!  Could be waffles..."

Mom said we weren't getting anywhere out front and thought we should try out back on the deck.  She mentioned the lighting might be better out there.

"Does this sunbeam make my snooter look big?"

Yeah.  Once Mom stopped laughing, she said maybe we'd have better luck if Cam got in the shot and showed me how it was done.  Great idea!

"You don't have any treats left, do you?"
"Yeah, this was a great idea.  Here's my imitation of Cam."

I mean - I did my best to study Cam and mimic her look.  That's what Mom wanted, right?  And then the breeze kicked back up and ...

"No, wait.  It IS pancakes!"

That's pretty much how my session ended. After that, Cam and I decided to get in a little Crazed River Otter action. That was WAY better than posing for portraits! So maybe I'm not a supermodel like Cam ... but I did make my mom laugh.  A lot!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
