It’s Friday, pooches! Because my manservant’s academic duties start this afternoon, he has been working furiously in the library for three straight days. My womanservant returned to the Big Easy yesterday afternoon on business, which left my manservant in a funk. He was no better this morning as he finished up a marathon session of writing. I knew that we would not be having an excursion today and in an effort to cheer him while he continued his duties I pulled a rib eye of boeuf from the icebox and dropped it in his lap. It did the trick, pooches. In no time, Starlight and I were on our patio grilling away while my manservant prepared potatoes and a salad. After cooking our cookout lunch, we gathered the goodies and paraded out to the backyard to enjoy our feast.
Anxious to get back to his duties, my manservant left us out to play while he returned inside and continued his work. He’ll be headed out-of-town about the same time my womanservant returns from the Big Easy. I guess she will have excursion responsibilities tomorrow.
