Monday 9th July 2012 – Ssshhhh!

Do not talk to my Mistress today. She is not in a good mood and is very stressed about her keyboard exam this afternoon. It’s her own fault. When she got a distinction in grade one she set the bar a little higher than was likely to be attainable again. Let’s face it when you have a knuckle that needs replacing any sort of keyboard playing is bound to be more difficult, but she doesn’t cut herself any slack and some of the things she has to do are not going well. She is not happy. It would be far better if it were a morning exam, but it isn’t. It’s late afternoon so we have to suffer her being like this all day. I suggested she should just go out and I’d look after the others, but she doesn’t want to do that. Ah well. She’ll either pass or she’ll fail and either way we’ll love her just as much. Dogs don’t pay much heed to whether you have any certificates on the walls or not. We’re simple souls, just scratch us behind the ear and we’ll love you for life.

It’s surprising. The roof box is now fitted to the car and it doesn’t look nearly so big. We did prove that you get a person in the roof box as we had to send Andy up to complete the fitting as no one could quite reach inside at the back to finish the fitting. Fortunately he is very strong so my Mistress isn’t worried that it won’t be screwed on tightly enough. She is more concerned that it will be done so tightly that she will never be able to undo it. She did tell Andy that if he misbehaved he’d be travelling in the roof box, but fortunately I don’t think he believed her.

  1. Hey Alfie,

    Good luck to your Mistress in her keyboard exam – I’m sure she’ll do great….

    So I was wondering if you guys had to lay low today if she’s all stressed, but then I realized she’s probably so stressed she won’t even notice if you get up to some extra Mischief today? Huh? Just a thought….. Tee Hee

    Have fun everyone,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂
