Mischief Monday – Lord of the Peacocks

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Oh this guy earned the Monday Mischief title, yes he did. (Thanks to Miss Mary Ann and her I-Phone for all the pictures.)

Since Thursday, when Miss Mary Ann and Mom decided to take a new evening constitutional route which included part of our weekend morning route in reverse order, this guy required a lesson from the Jetster.

Here’s how the situation went down for three consecutive (vocab builder) nights.

At about ¾ through the route, Mom and Miss Mary Ann scout Mr. Peacock on the lawn at 2:00 (if you look at a dial watch.)  Dixie, JJ and I notice too and stand attentively, focusing on Mr. Fancy Feathers.


Mom readies her body for the upcoming lunges from JJ and me.  Mr. Peacock stands there indifferent to my demands (which I deliver with barking while lunging for emphasis.)  Instead of standing down or Mom allowing me to herd him to show my leadership, what does he do?  THIS!

Oh yeah, can you believe it?  He looks down on us like a President in a dictatorship (vocab builder)! Seriously? To make matters more infuriating (vocab builder) he proudly poses for photos.  Hmpf… supreme mischief maker I say!

Another great, except for Mr. Fancy Feathers, day.

Mother’s Day – I’m Thinking Slightly Less Ahead Pt. 2

Hey It’s Jet Here.

After yesterday’s post and in between playing, wrestling with JJ, napping, guarding the house, did I mention napping?, I found some time to continue thinking ahead for Mother’s Day.   The 4-legged family member meeting came up with the following brainstorming ideas:

  • Idea: Give her flowers from me, JJ, Fluffy and Puffy.
    • Issues:
      • She’s allergic to many varieties, what if I select the wrong kind.
      • If we pick, well really bite local neighborhood varieties, we could get in trouble and they would arrive, well, smooshed.
      • Puffy and Fluffy eat them and throw up everywhere for days.
  • Give her a gift card.
    • Issues:
      • We haven’t received a raise in our allowance (currently $0) in years.
      • No transportation
      • Too many choices for a Manly Man like me.
  • Take her to the park.
    • Issues:
      • JJ and I could not honestly focus on Mom.
      • Miami? What was I thinking?  Mom and I would sweat puddles. Little Miss “Cool as a Cucumber” would probably be fine!
      • Lotta unscooped you know what currently at the dog parks; not conducive to picnicking.
      • Uh, JJ and I might, by accident, consume all the provisions instead of sharing with Mom.
  • Best idea so far – contact Miss Mary Ann, Auntie Liz, or Madrina and beg for assistance with adoring eyes and my famous Jetty Boy whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
    • Issues:
      • Mom charges her cell phone a little too far back on the counter to reach.
      • I can only dictate emails.
      • Miss Mary Ann might or might not walk with us this evening.

By selecting Best Idea so far, we have more hope of implementing (vocabulary builder) any or all of the other ideas previously listed.  Hey, how to I print, email, or text these posts to Miss Mary Ann, Auntie Liz or Madrina… where’s that Siri person who is so smart??

Another great let’s see what we decide day.
