[Comments] (9) It's a Mess, I Tell You!: I had some patterns sitting on the dining room table, and this morning while I was still asleep, Sadie shredded them and spread the pieces throughout the house. When I got up, there she was happily bedded down in a nest of shredded pattern tissue. Arrrrrgh.

At Beverly's, where I went to buy more patterns, the lady said, "At least it wasn't money." What patterns cost nowadays, it might as well have been money.

I can't believe how expensive patterns are!! We sure got a good deal on the one for my wedding dress, wasn't it on sale for just a few dollars? That naughty puppy. You'll have to punish her by sending her to live with us!

Speaking of patterns, am I supposed to be making *something* for Leonard for Christmas?

Posted by Frances at Tue Aug 10 2004 14:27

I dunno. I'm making him some somethings. You could too.

Yet another reason I have a fish.

And not a piranha, either.

I have several fish. None of them have EVER pulled something like this.

Hehe. Fish are good (see "Cat in the Hat")

My former neighbor (who moved out of our four-plex a few weeks ago) gave me her beta fish, which we happily received. Sadly, Little Fishy-Big Fishy, as Atticus named him, recently died in the care of a friend (we're still on vacation). Little Fishy-Big Fishy has been provided with a proper burial, I hope.

Oh, sad. Poor fishy. Frances, Sadie has shredded our fair share of stuff too. To name a few...our beautiful marriage certificate, school pictures, and some coin collection money! I know how you feel.
