Will Bark for Bread

“Martha! Martha! MARTHA!!! MARTHA!!! MARTHA!!!!!”

“Just stop, you guys. I barely finally got to sleep.” It’s been rough. As soon as my head hits the pillow, I go to sleep for three hours and then I wake up and THINK for three more… This is partly a summer thing, but mostly it’s the fucking state of the world…

“But MARTHA!!!! This is really serious!!!!!!! There’s a GUY doing stuff on OUR PORCH!!!! OUR porch!!! MARTHA!!!!”

I get up after another almost sleepless night. I open the front door and check the box (a Barkbox with the word “bread” written on it in red colored pencil) I left out the night before. Inside is a loaf of cinnamon raisin bread. In a waxed paper bag is little cinnamon roll from Tumbleweed Bread (which is literally next door).

  1. Martha Martha Martha MARTHA….a good little read and how wondrous to have a bread delivery for breakfast. I’ll have a couple of slices πŸ™‚ thanks for joining in

  2. I love a good raisin bread but alas Sparky refuses to consume raisins, or grapes for that matter. Hope you can enjoy the bread and the roll and pause for just a bit in the worry… It is nice that you have a built in intruder alert system. Ranger was good for that until about 13 yrs of age. Then he would sleep through almost anything!

    • Oh, poor Ranger! Missing out on a dog’s great joy. Now that I know that a lot of us are not sleeping I think I might relax a bit. If it’s just how things are now, then, OK. What strange times…
