Hey It’s Jet Here.
Last Wednesday night, Mom intended to get started on her Kitchen Counselor Servings Newsletter. Instead, she spent 2 ½ hours on the phone with this person called Mr. AT&T. We heard everything because she had Mr. AT&T on speakerphone. This thingie called the internet connection wasn’t working. She followed all of pleasant Mr. AT&T’s instructions. He would ask Mom, “so, can you get online now?” Mom would reply, “unfortunately, no.”
- sat on the floor looking at the back of the thingie I try to melt into when it storms (CPU unit for you computer folks),
- played with lots of wiry thingies,
- asked Mr. AT&T to check with his superiors,
- she had lots of that patience stuff.
Many times during their conversation, it seemed like Mr. AT&T spoke French while Mom spoke Portuguese! (not really, you know what I mean!)
Anyway, somewhere during hour number two, Mr. AT&T asked Mom to check this modem thingie. Mom realized he meant gateway and told him she would need to go into another room.
JJ and I dutifully followed Mom to lend support. Mr. AT&T asked what color the lights were. Mom said
green. He asked her to unplug/plug which required Mom to figure out lots of wiry stuff again on the floor. She did and nothing changed. Then Mom had a technical epiphany. Look at what she saw.
She told Mr. AT&T, reconnected the wire, and poof, everything improved. She hung up with Mr. AT&T (after a bit more stuff that messed up other parts of her computer like this Outlook thingie).
Mom assumed her contemplative (vocabulary builder) face. She looked at me, then JJ, then Puffy, then Fluffy. This sizing up looking process took about 5 minutes. The hour chimed 11:30 p.m. and Mom told JJ and I that we were off the hook. She told chatterbox Fluffy that she knew he didn’t do it. She glared at Puffy and said, “How did you do it this time? Only you have the fine motor skills to fuss with that wire, Sir Puffy. Look what you caused.” He stared Mom down indifferently, feeling quite proud of his technical skills.
Another great wiry day.

Benny & Lily
Hey Benny, Hey Lily, Jet here.
Me too, can’t imagine the inability to watch basketball with Mom or Mr. Ceasar!
It seems your Mum is pretty good at working out who the Mischief Maker is buddy!! Glad you didn’t get framed…. 🙂 That was very impressive from Puffy though…. 🙂
Your pal Snoopy 🙂
Hey Snoopy, Jet here.
You are correct my friend. Shhh… besides being the Kitchen Counselor, she’s a lawyer by education, so, I think she is this thing called judicious before she accuses any of us of anything! 🙂
I know, but, Snoop, don’t give the Puffster too many accolades, he’s already quite full of himself!
Have a great day.
Good for you guys 😉
I wish all mommys can be like yours in accusing department
Hey Papoe, Hey Kroten,
I think most Moms are when they have time to reflect… sometimes, there is just too much going on at once!
Glad to chat with you Papoe… 🙂
Woof! Woof! Yah my mom can relate … Lots of Golden ALOHA n Woofs, Sugar
Hey Sugar, Jet here.
It must be bad… all the humans are sharing the same frustrations! Glad we don’t deal with that silly stuff, right? Aloha.

Hey Little Bro Poppi, Big Bro Jet here.
Wiry for sure! Poor Mom. She had so many other things to do… I compliment her on that patience stuff. 🙂
teehee. Big Bro Jet, yes your mom sure is awesome 🙂 She deserves a big giant hug as huge as Poppy can handle. =D and another giant hug from Poppy’s mommy, she says. 🙂

Hey Poppy, Jet here. Thanks Poppy… Mom said she loves the Lunchbox Gang! Great name… Oh, I’m so glad to learn you’re feeling comfortable, that makes a Big Bro happy. 🙂 To our busy Moms, we’re proud of you…
Sir Puffy, you are a master of mischief! Two hour later! Oh, boy…..nothing more frustrating than trying to figure out why your internet won’t work!
Hey Fred, Hey Gloria, Jet here. Hi Miss Janet.
Puffy, through Mom… Yes, I am the smartest, cleverest, creature in the house, 2 or 4 legged. I have more talent in one paw than the lot of them combined. I keep it under wraps most of the time, couldn’t resist this one!
Mom… So true, computer issues are the pits!
I need to learn this trick somehow.
I can show my sister a better mischief 😉
Hey Papoe, Jet here. Anytime you need a tutorial… 🙂
Snowin’ and blowin’ here so I thought I’d just hop by to say “hi” and see how y’all are doing.
Hope y’all had a great weekend and have a fantastic week! Sounds like it’s off to a good start now that you’re off the hook for the computer problems.
Y’all come by now,
Hawk aka BrownDog
Hey Hawk, Jet here.
Snowin’? Blowin’? We’ve had Pourin’ and Blowin’! Wow, isn’t that unusual for this time of year Hawk?
Our weekend was rough because of the boomin’… Yes, always appreciate not getting blamed for mischief!
Have a great week yourself…
My mom has little of the patience thing when it comes to wires or anything techy! At least you didn’t get blamed for this mischief!!!
Hey Higgins, Jet here.
Mom says she decided to practice that patience stuff for fear of getting an ulcer!!!
I know, she knows who the mischief maker in the house is!
oooh Puffy that was some mischief – computer troubles are the worst!!! no more shenanigans with the computer!
Hey it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Wendy,
I’m allowing Puffy to handle the dictaphone a bit today. Miss Wendy, first may I thank you for your hugs and kisses each day. I’m not a super soical guy, however, deep down, I really appreciate the love.
Miss Wendy, I am completely above so called shenanigans, I proclaim my innocence!
Isn’t technology great 🙂 Glad your mom got it figured out!
Hey it’s Jet here.
Mom asked me to share… it’s an amazing opportunity to which we have become so completely dependent!
Hey Puffy, it was circumstantial evidence…. don’t let her hang this on you!
Hey Rumpy, Jet here.
I’m giving Puffy the dictaphone… I completely agree, I would NEVER be so OBVIOUS as to leave tracks… I proclaim my INNOCENCE! Thanks for your support, especially since you are a K9.
sending goodnight hug and kisses to sweet Jetty, JJ, Mom, Rachel and Pluffy! xoxoxo
Hey it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Wendy.
Right back at ya… Mom got home late from a productive meeting. She has a super busy week.
Jetty kisses and JJ hugs to you, Mr. David, Jacob, Cassie, Rex and Barkley oxoxoxoxo
