The Johnson Holiday newsletter

In the spirit of the season, I thought I'd catch anyone who is interested up on the goings on at our house.

Our little Miss  has become quite the little actress. She's been in a couple of different plays this year, including a stellar performance this week at the Douglas County Humane Society. Oh, wait, I mean the Douglas County Historical Society. The stellar performance at the Humane Society was a whole different sort of drama. She continues to work with her 2nd grade teacher on her behavior management plan, and has had many good days this fall.

Dave continues to be a workaholic. We do see him a few times a week for an hour or two before bedtime, and Sheri has discovered that a home-cooked meal will bring him home right quick and at supper time, even. Unfortunately Sheri hates cooking, and only does it a few times a month, because, ultimately, she's too busy making up stories and lies to do the whole domestic goddess thing.

Jazz the dog continuously amazes us with her ability to regurgitate things she should not have eaten in the first place. This skill has saved her life at least twice this year, once when she ate a large bag of chocolate, and again when she snacked on some liquid drain cleaner. And it also seems that no matter where we hide the butter, she always finds it. Such a nose she has!

We have a new addition to the family this year. His name is Colby and he is an orange tabby cat. Colby came with a regurgitation feature similar to that of the dog, only his system is a lot  more sensitive, because he regurgitates just about everything he eats. Thank goodness he just plays with the mice and doesn't eat them. He also came to us with a very sensitive bladder, and has spent some expensive days in the hospital.

So that's the news from here. We've had no unexpected  pregnancies, root canals, or major animal surgeries this year, and we have not yet received the gift of lice from the elementry school. We count our blessings.

PS. Should anyone think about dropping by unannounced, I urge you to call ahead. I have recently been suffering from these weird hot flashes that have me stripping off my clothes without advance warning.

Peace homies.
