You Have GOT to Be Kidding Me!!!

Remember Jasper's adventures with the cereal box? Well, it turns out he likes large envelopes, too. I had it sitting by the trash can to be taken out, and he apparently decided to adopt it. First he explored the inside thoroughly, then he rolled around the floor in it. After quite a lengthy stretch of play, the poor fellow was tuckered out and settled down for a nap next to his new "friend."

Later, Jasper entertained me by putting his bone on on the envelope and pushing it around the floor with his nose!

No comments:

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
