Practice Makes Perfect

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  This morning, we all had a great walk together -- not only did we wait until it actually got somewhat light out, but it was chilly AND we ran into my bff Chelsea the Border Collie!  What fun!  I was just relaxing back at Ao4 Headquarters when I heard my mom ask, "Does anyone know why the bed is all messed up?!?"

"What exactly do you mean by 'all messed up', Mom?"
"Why don't you and I go take a look?"

She went into the bedroom and I could hear her starting to re-make the bed.  I was sure she could use some help, so ...

"Wait for me!!!"
"Mags!  Were you doing aircraft carrier landings?!?"

"That's entirely possible."

Since she brought up aircraft carrier landings, I figured she'd want me to get some "touch and goes" practice in.  I left the room, then zoomed back in:

"Coming in for a quick landing!!!"
IMG_1150MagsTouchAndGo
"YEAH!  How was that?!?"
"I think your brakes are off, Maggie."

"'Brakes'?  Do you mean my tailhook?  We don't use those for 'touch and goes'."

I thought I should try again - maybe try a lighter landing and quicker take-off.

"I'm taking another run, Mom!  Look out!"
"Maggie, I'm trying to make the bed!!!"

Me, slamming on the brakes!  ... I mean, engaging the tailhook.

You know, I could get a lot more practice in if someone didn't keep messing with my runway!  No worries, though - I'll keep at it!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
