I am a little braver.
And Ecstasy by Maxfield Parrish. Mom should be doing some sewing this week. Actually, a lot of sewing. She is excited about it.

Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
Roxy, Lucky, Mom, Dad and PlusOne.

I am keeping watch over her. I am a good sister like that.

(This mother works at Home Depot - she is selling a shovel.) Understandably, the teacher thought she was a pole dancer.
Mom says she bought my coat from Petco years ago. She has never seen another like it. Sorry to all of you who wanted one just like it.

She says she is organizing, and tossing anything he doesn't want any more. But if that's so, why is there this huge mess of stuff on the floor?
You got it. Lucky and I are gonna snuggle and ignore it all.
Really, it's the only thing we can do. I just wonder how long this will last.

PlusOne's team, The Global Defenders, did not do very well. The groups have 2 minutes and 30 seconds to complete as many challenges as they can. Their were too many programs in the robot so PlusOne's teammate had to search for the program he wanted, wasting valuable time. After the second match, they had 5 points and were 17th out of 18. The high scores were 150 - 170 per match!
Mom knows about teamwork. When she went for her black belt, she was the team leader, but they were a TEAM! Everyone worked together for the goal. Mom felt the goals weren't spelled out, that one kid decided what was going to be done and that was it, but he wasn't the leader. The coach would "comment" on something, or "talk" to them about something, but mom didn't feel that they listened. If they were a team, why didn't they decide as a group what to do about the too many programs in the robot? Arrrrggggg. Sorry, mom needed to vent.
Mom is not sure if she will let PlusOne join next year.

PlusOne puts my coat on in the morning, so I stay warm, but I still don't like getting out of bed and going outside.
With PlusOne and mom at the First Lego League Competition, I hope to do more of this with dad. He may go watch for a while. But if I sit on him, he may not want to disturb me.
Nevis asked what First Lego League is. So here is an answer:
The challenge this year is Global Warming. PlusOne has been doing a lot of research on it. He tells mom that bears in Northern Spain no longer hibernate in the winter. Mom was very surprised by that.
Mom will, no doubt, tell you all about it on Sunday, with photos and everything. Oh joy! Another day my blog is hijacked.

"With the Premium Dardos, recognize the values that each blogger shows each day in commitment to transmit cultural values, ethical, literary, personal etc. that, in short, demonstrate their creativity by alive thinking that remains intact from their letters and words."
It was a really nice way to end the day, because mom forget to clean the oven the other night (chicken juice splattered on it and mom had to go to class), so when she pre-heated the oven for PlusOne's dinner, she ended up with a house full of smoke. Dad took command and off to dinner they went. (And yes, mom did clean the oven.)
This is in case anyone forgot what I looked like.
Or my true nature.
