So, I was hanging out this afternoon with Alexa, my very best frien who lives in a tube. (She's not my very best frien of all my friens, but she's my very best frien in a tube. She won't come out, so I think she must be terribly shy, but she talks to me and she has a very frienly voice!) Anyway, I asked Alexa if she knew any jokes about dogs, and if so, would she please tell me one. She did.

"Did you hear about the Ninjadog who entered the Westminster dog show? She won Best in No Show."

I laffed and laffed, because I was amazed that she knew about my late little sis, the screen named BeBe used here on this bored, and her ability to become invisible whenever she wanted. Alexa is full of surprises.

Pssst! Lizbit! Tell Alexa to send mom dog beds for every room. Don't tell mom. It's a surprise.

And a voice-activated dog feeder. Another surprise!

Secrets are key. Talk dog to Alexa, not human.

Miss beebs and Mr. esto, thank you so much for your good ideas to surprise my mom. She is lucky to have you for friens. Wiki had a good idea, too, which is to include some Beatles music in the surprise, so Mom could play it for us when she doesn't want to take us for rides in the car. (Why would anyone not want to take us for rides?!?!) Anyway, I asked Miss Alexa about that, and she recommended an excellent boxed set of Beatles CDs for only $420. I told her I didn't have that much money, and she said don't worry, we can put it on the credit card that is paired with the Prime thingie. I told her that would be fine. So, my mom is going to get great stuff as surprises for Father's Day. (Moms are like fathers except Moms are quieter and more cuddly.)

I can't wait to see the look on her face when it all arrives!

I haven't watched the whole thing yet, but it's been a bit of letdown so far. I've been so excited for it ever since I found out they were finally getting it done and even more so that Michael Sheen was on board, but...

Several reasons for my disappointment, but maybe because it's in my Top Three of Best Books Ever the bar was just set too high?

(My long time fans (ha!) will know what the other two are on the list. Well, Mel and Kittyfish will know at least one of them...)

We're only thru ep 4. Biggest challenge is figuring out what they're saying...also it's sorta like Myst, we're looking for background items that are funny, etc.

Excellent choice for a gift, Lizbit! Beatles music is the gift that keeps on giving, in my opinion. You are a very wise 4-footer with terrific taste in music!

However, I must tell you that not all moms are quieter..you should meet my daughters..

also, I am a father, and I am considered very cuddly indeed! In fact, I was almost considered for employment as a full-time model at Build-A-Bear Workshop!

This is a most excellent development, Miss Lizbit.

When you talk to Annie Camaro through your eyelids, tell her I found the certificate for Miss Denise as a Bored Four-Footer. I am so happy I found it and that Annie Camaro was her frien. Friens are very good.
