Pussy Willows And Blue Balls

Hello again Internet People!  I was kinda surprised that I didn't have anybody bitch about the title on yesterday's Blog Post, I guess I will have to try harder.

I did spend about 10 hours playing with my pussy ... willows yesterday, nope, still not even close to done.  I have about 50 of them sewn together, about 20 of those have been clipped and turned through, and a whole 8 of them are now done! Yes, 8.  Out of 90+.  This is definitely going to take a while. I took pictures this morning for you, here they are:


The close-up gives you an idea of the scale I am working in here.  These little suckers are a pain in the ass to turn through!  It actually takes longer to clip and turn them than all of the other steps combined!  And stuffing them is no picnic either!

Now, onto a completely different subject.  I have talked to you all before about the weird little critters that share our home.  You may remember Jack, our sweet little dog who tries to tear me limb from limb at least twice a day.  I think I mentioned before that he is a freakin smart little shit, and I was not kidding.  I remember being taught when I was younger that dogs were color blind.  Apparently new research has proven that to be untrue, but my dog proves it to be untrue every damn day.  

Jack has dozens of toys in his bucket (he is as spoiled as the other kids), and he knows everyone of them by name.  Tell him to go get the "Crazy Chicken Lady" or the "Pink Poodle" and he will immediately set about searching until he finds the correct one.  Which is pretty impressive on its own, but what really impresses me is his ability to tell the difference between colors.  These are Jack's favorite toys:
They are actually sold as Racquetballs, not dog toys, but they are the only balls we have been able to find that he doesn't annihilate within 5 minutes.  He absolutely adores his balls!  And he knows which color is which.  If I tell him to find me the "Blue Ball", he will find the Blue one, and he will totally ignore all the other colors until he does find the right one.  Of course once he finds the blue one he then has to go around the house and collect all the other ones and herd them all into one spot where he can guard them.  He can get 3 in his mouth at one time (I can't get him to hold still long enough for me to snap a picture of that), and he will use his paws to hold the other ones.  Once he has them all together either my husband or I (or both) will start with this "Bwahahaha" laughter and the dog will absolutely freak out trying to protect all the balls thinking we are going to take one.  He is funny as shit.

Here he is with just two of the balls, he has one in his mouth and another between his paws.


Well, if I am ever gonna get these damn pussy willows done I guess I better get away from the computer and start sewing again.  I will be back again next time with lots more of nothing to say.  Until then ...
