Mom has been dogtoring the bump on Penny's back some more. It's a sebaceous cyst and it won't go away by itself, so Dr. Mom has been using Icthammol on it. It's very yucky! It's black stuff that smells like tar and it's supposed to draw the nasty stuff out of the cyst. Patches and I are staying waaaaaay away from her until that cyst finally 'splodes!
Patches is standing guard by one of our mom's bear poles! She has heard that our mom and dad are selling lots of stuffs and she wants to be the first to know if any bears are up for grabs! Actually, Mom has tried to sell some bears, already, but no one seems to want them (or anything else, for that matter)! This economy has put a big halt to anyone buying on Ebay or in our mom's booth at the antique mall.
Some of you may know that our dad has some health issues. Well, he can no longer do much woodworking, so our pawrents are selling a lot of his tools and fishing tackle. That's what is keeping our mom so busy. She has to go to the basement with Dad so he can tell her what he wants to sell. Then they bring the stuffs upstairs, take pictures and list it on that Ebay place. They keep saying that it is all very time consuming. Whatever THAT means! All WE know is that we aren't allowed to go to the basement with them because one of us (Patches) likes to open the door to the outside and escape into the neighborhood. The first time she did it, no one could figure out how she got out. They finally decided that she knows how to open the latch on the screen door. What a doofus! Doesn't she know that we have it way too good here to be running off? Hello...there is no aire-conditioning out in the neighborhood and it's much easier to find treats right here in our own house!
Well, everybuddy, I'm going to lay on top of one of the aire-conditioning vents for a while!
Poppy (and Penny & Patches too)
