Final Friday Feature

Mama to me the story that happened way back in 2007. She said we had a loveseat, and two dog beds by our bed for 3 dogs.
At times this is how they slept.

When Cooper became an angel, we dragged the sofa to the curb, and she paid 40 dollars each for two of the chairs above.
Mama uses the chairs to hold pillows and to read in or sit down so she can reach her feet.
Big boy and me tried the chair once and never got in them again.

Last week,Mama sat down in the chair to take polish off her toenails, and it sunk so low, she got up, got the measuring tape and the chair is 15 inches to the sit surface and goes to 11 inches when she sits down and she swore to me, it is not her weight, but the fault of the cushions.

the mystery of the Big Dogs not using the chairs, is solved, Big was Big and I am Bigger, but our weight mashes and moves the cushion down too far.


As Mama sat in the chair, she saw the stuff hanging on the wall. 
She told me the story of the hanger thingy on the wall.
The wall hanger was added 30 years ago to keep Daddy from hanging stuff on doorknobs.
Mama says he hangs whatever wherever he is when he decides to hang it.
Hanging there now is...
A gown that she uses for exercising her legs while lying on the bed because she can't get off the floor.
A swatter, that will kill any flying/crawling/creeping bug. I have heard her scream for Daddy if it is a spider. She doesn't swat spiders!
There is an emergency leash in case of fire or home invasion, and we have to go out the window,
At one time there were 3 leashes there, but Cooper, Baby and Jake are angels now and don't need leashes or windows to flee from fire/home invaders.
She said they can fly through walls now.
She whispered in my ear that Daddy has NEVER hung anything on the hanger thingy. He prefers chairs and doorknobs.
She also said that Daddy was asked to get the whistle for her to blow so he could come help her when she was in bed from a pulled muscle, and he said What Whistle? Where is it?
She screamed said in a soft voice, on the wall where you never hang anything.
I don't know what the point of this post is, but this is the stories she told me to write for 
Final Friday Fiction.

It is nice of your Daddy to hang up anything, I don't want to say where I find things. The sleeping pups photo is just adorable, love it. HUGS, have a happy day!

Gail says a house can never have too many places to hang things.

Sounds like that chair is in need of some serious stuffing! We enjoyed reading about the knobs. #1 tends to hang stuff on doorknobs and at the bottom of the bannister.

Hangers are a FEATURE in the Hutch, too, Beau boy! To hang things is for easy access, tidiness - and to avoid damage to those things. Thank you for repawting all those things to us for FFF, and thank you, too, for joining in the fun! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

Tigger said...

Beau your Dad sounds like mine. Hanging on chairs and the floor is the usual form. F installed a set of wall hooks like yours - they do occasionally get used. I sleep on things hung on the floor and doses of my fur discourage further such hangings. paw smacks Mr T

Those three pups sure made a cute puppy pile when they were sleeping together. We like your story of the hanging thing. Our parents have hooks in their closet to hang stuff as well as space with actual hangers.

Chatty Crone said...

Very interesting and filled with some good ideas to copy.
I love the three pups in the chairs though - so cute and sweet.

Beau this is 100000% a love of K9 story. I'm smiling

The only place our girls like to sleep is my bed -- one on either side, trying to be one with my hip.
I'm convinced Bob and Tom are brothers from other mothers. Wish I could just ignore those items not in the laundry basket or trash, but it would hurt my OCD more than that would bother him. Oh, and just the other day he asked me where I kept the towels. (Duh! 5 years now in the same place at the end of the hall!)

What a great FFF Beau! We like the idea of having emergency leashes in the bedroom!

The chairs are beautiful, and I love them. I am amazed that you could actually get UP. I cannot sit anywhere low, have not been able to in years. I cannot get up, and people have to help me. When we went to a theater to see Jazz perform, I plunked down and it was way too low. I worried all through the program that I would not be able to get up, and would be so embarrassed. Plus I was stuck in between rows. Afterward, Phil had to pry me, lifting my butt, holding me up, everything he could think of. When I go in anyone's house, the first thing I do is scan all the furniture. If it all looks too low, I have to drag a kitchen chair out to sit in. Then that hurts my butt...

Brian said...

Those pups sure were cute sleeping a curled up and close. Our dogs, when they were still with us, loved to lay on the couch with the Dad, there was hardly room for the Dad!

Love the dogs sleeping on the couch. So do you still like the chair? I can't believe Bob never likes to hang things up. So does he have anything hanging in the closet?
