Petition drive.

Sherman-01_profileHello, this is the General. Still no response from the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the Household Headquarters to my letter regarding relocating my troop basket to increase accessibility. I tried moving the basket this weekend – several times – and every morning my troops were back in their original location.

Sherman-01_profileHello, this is The General. With limited access to the computer this past week, I missed my chance at Wordless Wednesday. Carol told me I’d have to wait until next week, but I managed to commandeer the computer while she’s off being nosy – or as she calls it, “making observations.” Yes, it was technically Walter’s turn to host Wordless Wednesday, but, as you’ll see, I have more pressing matters to present – matters that cannot wait.

Do you see what I mean???
