Momma Said

When someone wants to get rid of something and in the advertisement they state “As Is” that means you take what you get. Well I have a six month old puppy that I will give away “As Is.” You can have her with all her quirks and smelly breath. I think I am about ready to give up on her. Her latest antic is that she chewed up my bedspread. It is a comforter with the batting inside, well it is all on the outside now.

I need Cesar Millan to come and give me and Gracie some help. I have never had a dog quite like this one. I just wanted a nice puppy to play with Amber and to enjoy myself. Could I get that? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I will just have to deal with her and hope she grows out of it. Momma Said, “Finish what you start, don’t be a quitter.”

I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July, with no injuries or illness. I babysat the nervous dog, Amber, and we made it through with not much drama. I don’t know if any of the organizations that usually put off the big fireworks got to do that this year. I know the City of Thomas usually generated most of their yearly revenue from their celebration but it was canceled this year.

2020 is going to be a year for the record books. Now I understand that those in the know are predicting we will surpass 100,000 new cases of COVID-19 every day. That is a lot of sick people. I hope it does not get to the point of however careful we are eventually we are going to get it. I don’t know anyone personally that has had it. In our area we are not as crowded as big cities. Momma Said, “I wish I had dug that bunker before this all happened.”
