It’s the least I can do

I’m sorry it’s been so long since I’ve been here, but I’ve been sick, and just when I started getting better my secretary got sick so it’s been really hard to coordinate. 

Sick how? you ask. Well, let’s see… Don’t ask me how but I got what the boss calls an eye infection. Because of that they had to put some ointment in my right eye three times a day – just dropping it in a long, greasy strip right on my eyeball! I didn’t like it much, but after a couple of days I figured out that it was easier to just sit still and let them do it. They got a little grouchy if I fussed a lot.

Well, that ointment didn’t work all that well and the infection stuck around, so they said I had to have some pills too, and I guess the pills aggravated my tummy a bit so I started with the pooky-pooky again. It took a few days before they figured out it was the pills, but at the same time my eye felt better so they took me off of everything at once and here I am now, nearly back to my regular diet. 

Anyway, I’m pretty happy with how the oldsters look after me when I’m sick, so when I hear that one of them has sore shoulders, well, I step right up and try to correct the problem. 

It’s the least I can do

By the way, my executive secretary caught what is called a ‘cold’. Silly person. I figured out pretty early that all you have to do to get cold is go outside. 



Here’s Nellie. She’s not scruffy – she’s pretty.
