Another Busy Day Working

Let me tell you - this work stuff is not so easy - I have to get up and have my breakfast - and I have to eat it when mom puts it down because if I don't I'm stuck all day with nothing to eat!!!! Now this morning I got a break because mom had to be at the city courthouse this morning because she is heading a group trying to get a man to donate the ALEXANDER INN - aka THE GUEST HOUSE to this revitalization program she's working on...the man who owns it Merrill Boatman has let the property run into the ground - it's a really important piece of history as it housed many of the scientists who built that AWFUL big bomb - aka the Atom Bomb - even Albert Einstein stayed there - anyway - whatever your feelings are about the bomb the building is important. The people from the Heritage Association got the city to fine him and stuff - so he had to go to court this morning and there were a whole bunch of people there in support of preservation - The man told the judge he was meeting with a potential buyer this afternoon - nobody really believes that - mainly because he's wanting over a million dollars for it and the thing is FALLING DOWN.........but next week mom and a few people who are interested in the property's salvation are going to met next - Mom has a plan that she's trying to sell everyone on - now they're trying to figure out how to buy it if the man won't donate it to the effort - Mom's been writing Op-Ed pieces in the newspaper - if you want to read them - she's done 2 so far - First one here - second one here - as you can see she's been really busy lately!!!!

Okay now - back to ME - I didn't get to go to court with her - BOO - but, I spent the rest of the day with her - when she got home she was mostly on the phone - I don't like it when she is on the phone - I really bug her a lot when she's on the phone - I bite her ankles as she walks around and I jump all over her to get her off. I don't know why I don't like her on the phone - but I don't. Then she and daddy went to the Soup Kitchen for lunch - they specialize in the MOST delicious soups and are known for their signature chili [which mom says isn't as good as here] They also make really great cheese bread - huge pieces. Mom had Hungarian Pork Goulash - she said they should have just called it Cabbage soup with pork - but it was gtood. It was raining so I didn't get to sit with them outside - I had to stay in the car. - BOO -

Then we went back home and mom did more phone calls and a lot of paperwork stuff - but I sat right next to her the whole entire time. This is me checking out our business card and making sure the info is correct - if you biggify you can see that my picture is on there with mom's!

That's about it - it's now Friday night and I am so tired from a hard week at work - Mom is bored because the only thing on TV is Teddy Kennedy's wake - while mom might agree that he was a powerful Senator and did many good things for women and minorities - she was not a fan - she met him back in 1978-79 when he was planning his run for the presidency at a fund raiser - he was a mysognistic pig according to mom - then Chappaquidich happened and that ended that dream - she doesn't want to speak ill of the dead - but she was no fan!-

Have a great weekend.


  1. Thanks for the links to those two articles - they're very good. What an interesting person your mom is. Sorry you had so many Boos ... but oh, well. You look cute snoozing next to your insurance card.

  2. OMDness! Your mom is amazing - so many causes and such heartwarming attention to things needing attention. Very, very difficult these days... Thank you Checker's ma and blogging too. (And so well done) We loves you!
    Huggers xo

  3. Talk about activists! You could run circles around most of us. You and mom must have found your stride... working long hours, writing for the newspaper, heading up committees, saving your town and even blogging too. I'm tired just reading about it... yawn. Go Checkers, go!

  6. Hi Checkers,

    I don't know where your mom gets all her energy! I am wore out just reading about your day. I hope you get a vacation soon. You know what they say. All work and no play makes for a sad day. Or something like that!

    Wags & wiggles,

  7. Hi Checkers
    For some crazy reason I have a hard time leaving you comments.
    But my mom just says
    Another day, another pennny earned.
    Shes gone for 10 hours so I can't bite her heels. I wish i could.
    Its time for bed after your busy day.

  8. Checkers, you and your Mom have a very busy life, WOW. That is so cool that she does all that stuff. I don't like when my Mom is on the phone either, I try to bite her feet and she gets mad and sprays me with water and sometimes she even says bad words. I hope your Mom gets a chance to relax and you need your rest also. I love seeing a picture of you.

    licks and sniffs, Sasha

  9. You don't want to go to the court anyway - it's mighty boring most of the time!

  10. Checkers, you sure are busy helping your mom. Be careful not to overdo this work thing - we have seen what that does to humans!!!
    Lots of good work going on there for sure - thank you for such an interesting post.
    Have fun this weekend.
    Remember All Work and No Play .......
    love and kisses

  12. Wonder why they wouldn't let you go to court? Probably afraid you'd show everyone up with your superior intellect.
    Tail wags,
