FF: The Canine Perspective

My name is Pepper and I am a valued member of the Flag family.  I've been with them for two years and know them better than they think.  To prove how knowledgeable I am, I'll take you through a quick tour of their week.

First stop:

Their mailbox is frequently open after the mail has been delivered, but the neighbors' mailboxes aren't.  The bills are still in there.  The catelogues are still there.  So it remains a mystery.

Second stop:

This is Checkered's favorite after-work place.  He will eventually nod off for a few minutes and awake completely refreshed.  I would show you Caution's favorite after-work place, but it involves far fewer clothes and much more ice cream.  Don't get any ideas here that might embarrass me.

Third stop:

This is their itenary for their vacation.  Checkered is exceptionally organized.  The trip is a gazillion miles over two weeks.  Have you made your lunch date with Caution yet when she speeds through your city? Caution canNOT wait to sleep in that pop-up all those nights, but she'll survive.  Maybe.

Fourth stop:

These are the school supplies Caution's son bought yesterday.  Michigan schools don't begin until September 7, but we all know that if the kids wait until after the vacation, the supplies will be well picked-over.

Fifth stop:

This is the linen closet that Caution conquered yesterday.  She has been living in horror at the memory of her MIL dying and some relatives coming by the house and criticizing the condition of the MIL's linen closet.  Caution was shocked to find crib sheets in the back of her closet.  Yes, her baby is 8 years old now.

Sixth stop:

This is the el cheapo corn hole game they picked up at Walmart.  Some day they will get a serious tournament corn hole set like they played in Kentucky.  I'm getting sick of those bean bags flying around here, but Caution is absolutely addicted to the game.

Now, please excuse me.  I had a bath today and am absolutely exhausted from the emotional trauma of it all.
Mommy's Idea

P.S. Caution is just about out of blogging ideas and thinks she may just blog through all Mrs. 4444's clever memes.

I just heard about cornhole this week! Yes we will be playing at Blogfest!

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Cannot believe how cornhole has taken off here.

Also cannot believe anyone can say "cornhole" without snickering.

Enjoy the vacation - sure you can't head east this week?

Mental P Mama said...

We are going to do that cornhole thing at blogfest. Can't you just pop over there?

I laughed all the way through this Pepper. Thanks for the tour.
Now I have to go clean out my linen closet in case this is my last chance to do so.
have a great weekend.

I Am Woody said...

Seriously? Someone commented on the state of someone's closet?!?!

Betty W said...

That´s about how I look, after work too... :)
Loved this FF. Where do you get the ideas from?!

Nancy C said...

That's it. I can never die in fear of my closets being discussed rudely. Time to go on a run...

What an itinerary! Are you going around the world, that looks like one very complex tour you have planned there! Great post Pepper!

Cranberry Morning said...

CUTE POST!! Loved the anxiety over the linen closet. We've all been there! :-)

Just jot down blog ideas as they come to you and later put them in Draft. You can flesh them out when the time comes. Good luck!

Angie said...

Wow! What a clever dog you are, Pepper! Found you through the blog hops. have a Chessie you might like to hang out with, but he's lazy and doesn't help me with my blog. I should have a talk with him...

Cute post. My mailbox is always open too. I have not been able to figure it out. I wish someone would take my bills away.

Keep us posted on your vacation exploits. A gazillion miles in a pop-up? Wow. I'm going to start calling you Annie Oakley . . . or Mrs. Ingalls or something.

Haha, I love it. We often try to 'think' what our dogs must be thinking about us!

Too funny! I have heard a lot about 'Cornhole' but have never seen it before. I will have to check it out. Oh, and I will definitely have to check out my linen closet. I have no idea what all is in there! :0)

Pepper, will you get a break from this insane woman, or will you have to go along?!

Is it just mean, or does the name "corn hole" make you laugh?

CAN'T WAIT to meet you IRL!!!!

I have to say that I had never ever heard of the bean bag game called "cornhole" until this week, on another blog. It is just so freaky how that happens. I bet I'll hear it again next week.
