Franny Does Some Business
Posted by Francesca
As you may know, I am being confined to a crate for a total of 30 days. I must try to remain calm and inactive so that my bulging neck disc has a chance to heal. However, it would be helpful if I had a little more in the way of entertainment.
1 Excuse me, Laura! But I have to go, if you know what I mean.
2 But, before I'm allowed to go outside, Laura must first reach for the Bag Balm. This salve was developed in 1899 to soothe irritation on cows' udders after milking, but today, it's a favorite go-to for many ailments.
3 Including my dried-up little nose, which always gets this way when it's so cold outside.
4 Laura has Sharkey locked up in the hallway so we won't be tempted to play with one another. Oh, how I miss our playtime!
5 Laura so nicely carries me outside to the caged area in the courtyard. If she let me walk, I might be tempted to run after a squirrel, which is not what I'm supposed to be doing right now.
6 Could they have made this thing just a little bit bigger?
7 Honestly, can't a girl have a little privacy?
8 Well, that little trip outside made me feel a whole lot better.
9 Franny, would you like me to tell you a story?
10 That's nice of you Sharkey, but it looks like it's mealtime right now.
11 Yumm! This sure tastes good! Laura really knows how to mix it up.
12 Say, Sharkey! What about my story?
13 Francesca, it's only day 11 of 30! You need some better entertainment than snoring Sharkey. How about an iPad loaded with movies?
