Fun --

The three year old came to his mother crying.  “What’s the matter, sweetie?”
Still sobbing, “I stubbed my toe!”
“Which one?” she asks.
“The one that had roast beef!”

At first it was funny.  Whenever the wife played the piano, the family dog would enthusiastically sing along with an ear splitting howl.  But after a while the husband couldn’t stand it.  “For Pete sakes,” he begged, “play something he doesn’t know!”


  1. Rocks of ruck avoiding earthquakes on that one. Yikes!

  2. Funny timing because Pips whimpers a teeny bit when Emily is about to go out. But Emily's ride was late yesterday and Emily decided to mimic Pips--until the two of them sounded like two werewolves howling at a full moon. The fun never ends.

  3. When I lived in Nara, I was there during one of the years they open the ancient storage facilities and display the wooden sculptures that are thousands of years old. Amazing.
