Next up ...
THE THREE SCHIPETEERS: and
that odd man out, D'Artagnan, PUMA, our Schipperke-friendly cat.
You know you've heard it...Crosby Stills Nash and sometimes YOUNG.
There are days lately when I can't help thinking about my
recent references here at Skippertown to THE THREE.
Our black and often magical cat, PUMA is a true sometimes YOUNG
to the SUPER GROUP THREE...
So here's to C S N and sometimes Y as well as to J S M and sometimes P!!
Jordan, Skipper, Mel, and sometimes PUMA!! that is!!
The latest about about Melanie involves
a little sveral days episode revolving around:
FECES. Nice and dry feces, but nevertheless,
FECESwake up in the morning glory.
This along with...delicately intricate pools of pee.
At first I thought Miss Melanie was mad at me...
but after several uninterrupted days of
waking up to discover
FECES and delicately intricate pools of pee...
on the grey rug of the pet room,
I began to wonder
and to take it a bit personally.
Deciding on an action plan,
I tossed the Pet-Area-Walmart-Sale grey
colored rug into the great rug beyond;
and sprung the big bucks for a new one.
This time in light green to match the nearby
tile floor of the bathroom.
The early morning pattern of FECES
and delicately intricate pools of pee...
So it was a color scheme thing.

We hope your Holiday was truly a
MERRY SCHIPPERMAS filled with Biscuits
Chewies and NASCARS-A-PLENTY.
Here at SKIPPERTOWN,
THE THREE had a blast !
They played out their individual roles for
Dickens' THREE GHOSTS:
SKIPPER always the wise sage, appreciative of the past's many blessings and passings;
MELANIE ever crying out in the moment for
MORE petting...don't stop...BE HERE (petting me) NOW!!
JORDAN naturally LEAPING HIGH toward the ever present FUTURE.
And let us not forget the great and powerful,
PUMA and AIR JORDAN shared a moment of glory as each had matching green ribbons on all day long.
After all they are the only two members of SKIPPERTOWN
who actively and openly practice INTER-SPECIES-DATING.
It was only natural that they be bedecked with ribbons.

Happy Winter Solstice
from the makers of SKIPPERTOWN.com...
Together we move through the end of
a tumultuously chaotic year toward 2002, THE YEAR OF THE HORSE.
Must mean a good year is-a-comin' for the very-horse-like-gaiter-dog AIR JORDAN.
There is a movie out called, Tortilla Soup.
It was showing on our long plane flight from the islands last week.
I refused to pay five dollars for earphones but took a few free
glances at it between cat naps . It occurs to me
that SKIPPERTOWN's sister site,
BunnytownUSA offers a tortilla story of it's own.
The bunnies LOVE bread. It is often just as cheap to buy
wholesome corn tortillas here in New Mexico than it is to buy
a loaf of chemicalized white bread.
Bottom line for is that one of THE THREE
also has a fondness for all-things-bread.
That would be...hmmm...who can leap over
the wall into BUNNYTOWN without breaking a milisweat?
AIR JORDAN that's who...
If it suddenly grows quiet in the backyard when THE THREE
are having a 'walk about', I can guess that
Jordan is having a snack...not succulent rabbit...just good old tortilla soup!!

Not into Lords and Rings nor the sweet Ms. Liv Tyler?
You might be after reading this article in the SF Chronicle.
Thanks to superfan lucyorivendell for sending this in.
Lord of the Rings
THE THREE are holding a place in line for us at the theater.

"The Greeks told the story of the Minotaur,
the bull-headed fleash eating man who lived
in the center of the labyrinth.
He was a threatening beast and yet
his name was Asterion--"Star."
I often think of this paradox as I sit
with someone with tears in their eyes,
searching for some way to deal with a death,
a divorce, or a depression.
It is a beast, this thing that stirs in the core of our being,
but it is also the star of our innermost nature.
We have to care for this suffering with extreme reverence
so that, in our fear and anger at the beast,
we do not lose the star."
From "Care of the Soul" by Thomas Moore

Just gave THE THREE a post vacation bath.
Each has a different reaction to this ordeal.
Miss Mellie LOVES the entire process.
Skipper is nervous whenever water is
turned on anywhere on the entire property.
Terrified when the bath itself is unleashed.
Once he is immersed in the warmth of the bath though,
he actually likes it but doesn't let on that he does.
Jordan loves it when the other dogs are
getting bathed and dried off. He loves to come over
and lick and say Ha Ha...He is less enthusuastic
while in the bath himself, however. And he is a bit
unsure the purpose behind the ordeal of drying off
with a towel vs. just running outside or around the
house to dry himself off. He is after all a
manly man sort of Schip!

We are back and the three schips are a welcome home
that is much needed after a GLORIOUS Hawaiin-offline-from-the-world-Break.
Hawaii is a tough place to leave behind.
The wondrous tail wags and leaps of joy
and the news that all went well in our
absence though, makes coming back to winter
a more bearable thing.
More soon...Keep coming back ...it wags.
