Hi Everybody!!! We nursies are doin' everything we can to make Jackson comfortable and are busy preparin' his house for his homecomin' tomorrow!!!!!!! Check out our team of nurses! Asta, from Oz that Legend is also here with us. (She makes me really, really nervous...only today I dropped a full bedpan on her paw. I get the hand shakies and dropsies whenever she's around me! Oh, I hope I don't get a bad grade on this assignment. I even volunteered to skip Jackson's Pawty on Aire Ruby to put in an extra shift for extra credit after that pesky bedpan issue.)
Asta gave us the assignment of making the gallons of tea required for Jackson' s recovery. OK...SO...first I got the tea...Lipton, of course. What else is there??
Then I brought the water to a boil on the stove. And poured it into cups...let it sit for a while...VOILA....tea....right??? Hmm....THEN, I got this message from Eric....it's got me a tad worried.
Nurse Lacie. You are just what the doctore ordered!! and you look positively Matronly in your uniform. Jackson will soon be home, horray!! Make sure you have plumped up his pillows and he's a stickler for hospital corners on his freshly ironed egyptian cotton bedsheets on our mini-me's bed. Remember when you make the pots of tea in the Brown Betty teapot always warm the pot first and 1 teaspoon tea per dog should be adequate. I gave him some Jacksons Of Piccadilly tea bags so you can use those if you prefer.You did get a supply of digestive biscuits didn't you? They are the most pawfect for dunking. I'll be coming to visit you on Friday and when you nursies have a break later in the week I've arranged a special date for you, Asta and Agatha with ME!!!!And only ME!!! Oh I'm wigging my wag in anticipation!!! Be a good nursie. Wags, Eric x
Ok...I can do the square corners on the freshly ironed sheets...NO PROBLEM! BUT...this tea...preheat the pot?? I put the tea kettle (painted brown and named Betty) in the oven and caught it on fire...Oopsie...thankfully, the J's are understanding about fire in their kitchen.
One teaspoon of tea? HUH??? I threw a bag in the cup...teaspoon??? Am I supposed to cut the teabag? Hmm....Piccadilly teabags? I thought Lipton was everydog's favorite???
AND HE THINKS I LOOK MATRONLY??? GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!
I looked on the puter and this is what convinced me to use Lipton tea.
As for DIGESTIVE BISCUITS......that sounds like something Scruffy might utilize in some odd fashion. You dunk them????? IN WHAT?
So I'm thinkin' about Archie and his little issue with the Fig Newtons....those seem to be the most nootricous for Jackson to use (in smaller quanities!) for tea dunking. MMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!
Don't they look DELISH??
I admit I'm puzzled at Eric's instructions....thoughts, anyone?????
