Ode to a Bean Bag

Bean bag bean bag,
What are you to me?

A little Bouncer-sized island
In this big open sea.

My lady found you
At a neighbor's garbage sale

and I love you with my heart
even if you smell sort of stale.

Bean bag bean bag,
I hope that you love me.

Tell me that you do,
love me more than Miss Emily.

Babies part deux

"Hi my name is Bouncer.  Will you be my baby friend?" I asked.

"Yes.  I would like to be your baby friend," the baby replied.
"So let's kiss and be baby friends forever," the baby said.
"Ok, I can do this," I said.

"Open up," I said.

"I love babies."  the end.

It's a baby thing

I had one at my house this weekend.  She is 3 months old and is waiting to get adopted at HSSV.  What you're about to see is a true story.  Of my weekend with a baby.

Water bowl

I think that I love water.

Mostly any kind of water.  From a hose or a fountain.  If it's drip-drip dripping or puddling after the lady waters her planties.  It could also be from the faucet and I look real high and stretch my head until I can just see a little trickle.  But especially the water bowl in the backyard.  This is my favorite because there is so much of it and it never goes away.

All of its splishes and splashes and grumbly noises.  I like to watch it because its very jumpy and there are so many secret surprises in there.

And sometimes the lady and the Man are in the water bowl and they make it do flip flops right near my face.  I think this is the best.

Water water you are the best.
I think I could love you forever.

Hair shirt

Did you want to know where I've been all this time?  Just around.  But I haven't been able to type up my thoughts because the lady is always following me around.

I'm going to the kitchen, lady.  Oh, no, wait Bouncer!  I need to go get my camera!  Now, I am walking to the hallway because the floor is oh-so-cool on my belly.  Oh, Bouncer, hold on!  I'm not ready yet.

I think that I am a ce-le-brity.  Here is my bew-ty shot.

I am like one of those famous people that wherever they go, they leave something behind for their fans to talk about.  And the fans have so much to say because they are "in awe" of the ce-le-brity and the fanci-ness and just can't understand how the famous person does so many great things.  Some famous people are famous because they make things for other people, like my neighbor who makes sweets that fall from his trees right when I'm waiting for them.  Other people are famous (like my lady) because they bring me places - to the mountains where there are many squirrels and birds and my head becomes so full with all of the places I could explore and all of the things I could eat.  And then there are people, like the people at the Barn, who build things for other people, like how they built me a family, and they also built Robin and Winnie a family, and it makes people so happy and grate-ful because they didn't have one before.

For me, I am a ce-le-brity because I make hair shirts for the lady and the Man and Miss Emily.  Before my bath, after my bath, in the living room, in the bathroom, under the chairs and in all the crevices of my new house.  And the best part about it, is that I don't even have to think about it.  I just do it.  And the lady is "in awe" of how I could produce so many hair shirts in just one day.  "You are a hair shirt powerhouse," she says.  So she follows me around and takes my pictures and brooms my hair shirts up so that there's more room for all the hair shirts I will make before I go to bed.

2 hair shirts in process
The lady wants to put me in a wet suit for one day just to see how many hair shirts there will be underneath it.  She is very excited by this idea.  And she is also making plans to teach me how to use the vacuum hose all by myself!

I never once thought I would be so famous that people would talk about me so much and even when I leave the room.  I guess I'll have to get used to being a ce-le-brity.
