How was my day, you ask?

Oh, let's see. Mostly fine. I saw a lot of clients today and got tons of belly rubs. I sat in oodles of laps, and one lady and I got into a kissing contest. I won. Hee hee. I got my tongue all the way in her mouth.
"Ohhhhhhhhhh! Ick!", she said.
"What happened?", asked my mom.
"She TONGUED me!", exclaimed our client, laughing, but I think she was pretty impressed that I was fast enough to do it. Game over. I hopped into her hubby's lap and snuggled in for a nap.

Things went pretty well. We got home when it was still daylight and I went into the back yard to check for intruders. It was still light when Mom called me in for dinner. You know how I love this game. I ignore her, she yells! I squiggle down into the grass so only my eyeballs show (like an alligator in a swamp, sort of!), and she yells.

She yells louder and I really flatten myself. She comes outside in her bare feet and approaches my hiding place. Uh oh...I've been spotted. I make a mad dash for the hillside and she shouts, "STOP!!". Yeah, yeah. The magic word. I freeze in mid-air and next thing you know, I'm being carried into the house.

After supper (which included some of her New York steak but not as much as I wanted, which I made a point of telling her, too!), I dove through my doggy door and "SPLAT", found out that MY MOTHER PUT THE HARD DOOR IN SO I REALLY SQUISHED MY NOSE and made a really loud "BONK" when I hit it. OW OW OW!!
"Poor Mary-Margaret!", she says, and she removes the door.
Uh uh, I say in my head. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. So I did NOT go out. I probably should have, but my nose hurt and I had a headache. I have to be more cautious and really watch that woman carefully. She's sneaky like that.

Tomorrow is probably going to be a very busy day, a lot like today. It's good when we have a lot of people, but we're just not used to having a line out the door. Maybe we should buy some more chairs or something. We feel badly to see them huddled on the stairs outside our window while they fill out the Request for Service. On the other hand, it's always nice when people start talking to each other and exchanging business cards. Every cloud has a silver lining, they say.

Love and kisses...
