Charlie, you will surely have many memories of my profound deafness according to the Whispering Coldeweys.
Or, as the old folks used to say, She’s deaf as a post!
This is one of the more amusing stories about it, at least for me.
I wandered around after midnight tonight feeding the nocturnal critters in the Legend Zoo, as I always do.
As I leaned over to fetch Koko’s dishes, I heard a soft rattling noise that sounded like a rattlesnake shaking his rattles.
I stood under the smoke alarm outside the door listening with my good ear toward the ceiling.
I’m thinking Rats In The Walls, escaped Giant Ninja Roaches…
When I didn’t hear the noise again, I concluded that it must be Bats in the Belfry come home to roost.
Chuckling to myself at my own cleverness, I went on about my chores.
Later, as I was leaning into Che’s house to fill the hay bins, I heard the rattle again.
Finally, I realized that the noise came from pills rolling around in a plastic pill bottle
In the leg pocket of my Casbah pants!
You might not recall the pants. They had wide legs, reached just above the ankle,
And had deep pockets at the calf level of both legs.
I was forever losing something in the pockets.
I’m sure Che thought I was nuts when I started laughing and explaining it to him!
I asked Big Lucy if he thought I ought to recount this story, but he wasn’t speaking to me.
He’s annoyed that I posted photos of his beauty peel…
I have to tell him that Miss Spellcheck thought it was a beautiful peel.
Perhaps, that would make him feel better!
