He Had Been Busted!

First off—I hope that all of y'all and your loved ones are well and doing okay during this stressful time. Knock-on-wood Tony and I are fine.

I have just spent the past four days glued to my laptop getting my book The Cowgirl Sisterhood: The Terlingua Treasure Map ready to be published. So, I am pretty excited about this. I plan to launch a Kindle version first—then within a week I will release the paperback—all available on Amazon. So I hope you will wish me luck, because it has been a long time coming. In fact—too long.

This morning was eventful. Tony woke me up at 5:00, as I had requested, but when five o'clock rolled around I asked him to please give me fifteen more minutes. He replied, "No problem. I've already made a cup of coffee for you." Then I quickly fell back to sleep.

Fifteen minutes later, Tony woke me up, again. I was still half-asleep, as I went into the kitchen to get my first cup of coffee and I was looking forward to it.

Anyway, as Tony was filling up the bowls of dog food for our five four-leggers, I went to get my coffee. But when I looked inside my mug, there was only about 3 tablespoons of coffee in the bottom of the cup and there was some coffee spilled all around my mug. Huh?

So I said to Tony, "I thought you made me some coffee, but there is only a couple of spoonfuls of it in my mug. Did you mistakenly drink my coffee?"

"No, I didn't drink your coffee. Mine is right here. Let me look."

After Tony looked inside my empty mug and saw the spilled coffee (about six tablespoons)  on the countertop we looked at each other, and both said, "Henry did it." And we started laughing, because Henry is notorious for eating stuff off of our counter top and kitchen island.

"Henry Standing Bear did you drink my coffee?" I asked. Henry looked at us and then he raced out the front door, because he knew that he had been busted. Bottom    Line: Henry prefers Taster's Choice Decaf and so do we.

I have yet to decide if I am going to start drinking coffee with Henry every morning, but I might, because like me—he can be a little grumpy first thing in the morning. Because this morning Mr. H.S. Bear seemed to be real perky—even though it was decaf.

Y'all stay safe and healthy and I hope you find something to keep you laughing—like reading my new book!  ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿ˜‰
