This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. It’s Monday. I hate to break it to you folks. But I am a Sheriff and I always tell the truth. Nothin but the truth.
This weekend was a bit of a ruff one. My Deputy Digby Pancake has been having a bout of aching bones. His hips are a bit out of line, just like his attitude. So due to the bad weather and the Deputy’s sick time, we stayed around the beach house a bit. I’m not complaining. Actually, I am. I get bored not traveling so I decided to make better use of my time. I arrested all the fish in the sea, the dolphins in the Gulf Of Mexico, and the pelicans. That was just Saturday. When Sunday came along, I arrested the egrets, the rain again and the cold weather. If it’s snowing where you live, I apawlogize for that, but it’s not my jurisdiction.
All that arresting got me to thinking. I was forced to slow down a bit and gander at the ocean in our backyard. Although there was a bit of downtime for me as Sheriff, it gave me time to prepare my agenda for this week. Now it’s Monday. So sit down, listen up and let’s get some things straight.
First off, I saw what you did on Friday night and you are arrested. Second, I will let you off on probation today under one circumstance. That is that you recognize that your week is full of pawsibilities. You have a clean slate, a full week to work with here. Monday is not just a day back to work, but a day to start getting some stuff done! Do you need to clean out your refrigerator? Don’t call Digby, he is still on sick time. But get that fridge cleaned out! That ketchup is like 5 years old. Do you need to wash your car? How about you do that? Stop looking at it and wash it. Do you need to return those overdue library books? You know you aren’t going to read that book on boating around the world. You have no boat. Newsflash.
Actually, now that I am thinking about it, you ARE re-arrested. This is a new concept for me, but my downtime has left me refreshed with many pawsibilites on my horizon. Happy Monday to you. I haven’t forgot about Friday night either.
