My Uncle Sam had polio as a child and was bedridden with it for several years. After several operations and lots of physical therapy he eventually walked, but it was probably during those years that he became such a proficient knitter – what could you do with a kid in bed in the thirties with no TV? – and all that reading paved the way for him becoming a distinguished and published English professor.
Putting on new sheets today reminded me of how adept Mama said Granny became at changing the bed with Uncle Sam still in it.
No doubt who calls the shots around your house.ReplyDelete
Ha ha. I totally get it. We make the bed around the cat every morning!ReplyDelete
I thought making your bed with your pet on it was a requirement. We've even mastered changing the sheets with the cat napping on it.ReplyDelete
Hahaha! Love it. :-)ReplyDelete
I've tried making the bed with Angel on it, but always ended up having hide and pounce games instead.ReplyDelete
Someone's got you wrapped around their little finger! (toe?) -JennReplyDelete
Heaven knows I did try to gain control - but there was a lot of off th bed, then right back on the bed. At least she doesn't snake down under the sheets the way our cats used to.Delete
my dad had polio as a child too. not so bad as your uncle but it did give him one leg shorter that the other and one foot two sizes smaller that the other. he always had to buy two pairs of shoes to get one pair that fit.ReplyDelete
That is so funny and delightful. She owns you.ReplyDelete
LOL -- I need to develop this talent as well!ReplyDelete
I learned to change sheet with people in beds when I worked in the nursing home in the late 1960's. Mamie seems to enjoy the bed:)ReplyDelete
