October 17, 2009

White Dog watched as Steve pulled stuff out of his closet. She yielded space inch by inch as he piled things all over the chairs and floor space. "What is going on?" was the question as White Dog came and sat next to me in the living room. "You know I didn't have anything to do with making the mess," she added as Steve set an armful of shirts on White Dog's napping chair. "I know you are blameless. Dad is is cleaning out his closet and I do believe he has some method to this apparent madness." She hopped up on my shoulder and together we watched Steve scurry back and forth...sometimes carrying stuff...sometimes taking hangers or empty bags back to the closet. Finally, Steve came out and sprawled on the couch very pleased with himself. "I have a pile for laundering...a bag that needs to go to the dry cleaners...and bag of donatable materials...and I have already taken a bag to the trash! You should see how clean and orderly the closet is now!" White Dog jumped off the chair and went to see the miracle. Both returned and sat on the couch and stared at me. "Dad's closet is so clean that I can even lie down on the floor! When are you going to get to your closet?" White Dog challenged. I mumbled, "when I run out of meaningful things to do!"

You mean to say that there is a floor in a closet? and one that you can lie down on? hmmmm I think that is a myth, I have never seen such a thing...I should ask my mom about that. he he

Siku we fixed the stuff and added some things to a Questions and Answers page. Also, how should i explain your new category? We put it up- but we have a feeling some one will ask!

This is an open invitation to your dad, Siku! There are a few closets here, Steve, that would challenge even the best organizer, so please feel free to share your skill. It's time for a road-trip, isn't it???

The extra space could be for you Siku- A perfect hiding place for your stuffies!

Hmmm..my mom can be very messy too when she tries to "clean" her closet.

Love,
Charlie

Your Dad is impressive! How brave of him to clean out his closet. My Daddy is a pack rat and hates to part with things. He sometimes gets in trouble from Mommy because of it.

Love,
Teddy Bear

Maybe you should deliver the message next to our Girl. We haven't seen the floor of her closet in months, because of all the shoes. There's no telling how many of our stuffies might be mixed into that pile. So.... did your moma comply yet?

Wow, our Dad is never that ambitious. He waits for the MOmster to take care of things. Good job supervising, White Dog.
