Where is Widget?
So, Google was happily playing atop some of the wooden CD birdhouses. They are multi-purpose - the birds can chew on them because they are untreated wood, and they hold CD's. Nothing in my office, it seems, is off-limits to the birds. Google recently chewed through my computer monitor cable. He has this thing about power cords. I've lost several sets of cheap headphones to this guy. I don't know what it is about these types of cords, but to Google they are irresistable. We've been through two different telephone sets. We finally found a better place for the unit where he can't get at them. He's clever, you see, and somehow finds a way. Dedicated little stinker. Even more scary is the fact that he could be seriously hurt. So, we are constantly troubleshooting and finding ways to keep dangerous objects from him. Toys? He'd rather chew my latest paperback, magazine, or headphone cord. The magazines, eh, I recycle them anyway. The books, well, I try my best to put them away, but I pay the price if I forget. Good thing I buy most of my books used on Amazon.
Anyway, I digress. Google was playing atop one of the wooden CD birdhouses, cheerfully singing along, when he noticed that Widget was on the windowsill behind the curtain. One of Widget's favorite places to play. So, for several minutes Google kept peeking behind the curtain and chatting to Widget. Not a lot goes on here, but it's cute just the same.
And to think, just last week Widget was chasing Google and he was having none of it.
Never a dull moment with the flock...
