On Sunday my son informed me Big M stinks.

I agreed. The only way to resolve this situation was to brush him. You have seen my dog right?

In case you have not:

Brushing him is hard work. It takes forever and you are never done. It takes strength. Patience. Unfortunately the dog has strength and I have patience. It would be better if that was reversed. And Little J, well he has neither.

But to my surprise he suggested we go and brush the dog. Probably because his bedtime was approaching. Not that I minded.

We pinned Big M down on the back porch and each holding a detangler brush we tackled opposite sides of dog.

A while later we had two bags full of hair, three doggy treats less and a dog on the run.

Little J: Mommy I think we should do something with this hair.

Me: Not sure you can recycle dog hair.

Little J: No, we should use it to make a sweater.

Me: ?!??

Little J: You know, like llama hair.

Me: I know. But we don’t know how to spin it into yarn.

Little J: Maybe we can find someone who can. Then sell them the hair.

Me: Where would we go about looking for someone like that?

Little J: Your computer.

Me: And then?

Little J: We keep making our dog fancy. Then we sell the hair and they make sweaters. People are warm, I get new toys and my dog smells nice.

Guess that is what you call a win-win situation.

Disclaimer: I have absolutely no idea how my son knew about hair, yarn and sweater making. But I found this:

Anyone needs some fur?!

Monday Listicles

Happy Monday!

I am in total shock that it is end of May already. Are you all looking forward to summer? I know Jen is!

Last week you all warmed my heart. Even my husband was amazed that no bashing occurred in your lists about 10 things that husbands should. I just hope all the men out here understood that this does not mean we will quit nagging; but only cause we love you.

Before I call the next weeks topic I just wanted to say thank you. For being my friends, inspiring writers and great list makers. I am so excited to have you join me each week with your wonderful stories and fun comments. So naturally next weeks topic…has nothing to do with all this. I say make: LIST OF 10 SUMMER MEMORIES.

First thing is first though. Here comes this week’s listicle. Home edition.

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!
