Some kind of help.....


by Shel Silverstein

Agatha Fry, she made a pie,
And Christopher John helped bake it.
Christopher John, he mowed the lawn,
And Agatha Fry helped rake it.
Zachary Zugg took out the rug,
And Jennifer Joy helped shake it.
And Jennifer Joy, she made a toy,
And Zachary Zugg helped break it.

And some kind of help
Is the kind of help
That helping’s all about.
And some kind of help
Is the kind of help
We all can do without.
What is it about cats and quilts? The top picture is of a giant cat, named Jarold, who temporarily lives with us. He's "helping" me measure my quilt for borders. The bottom picture is one that Kim sent to me of her cat, Spike. She's simply "helping" by showing how comfy it is to lay under such an amazing quilt. What great helpers!

  1. First of all, I thought, "Gee Mia's coloring has darkened as she's gotten older"! LOL! I forgot you had another furry helper! At least cat "assistants" are too cute to get too mad at, and the pay rate for the work they do is pretty low--a bowl of cat food and some occasional attention.
