Herb’s blog, Herbdate 16319-008:
Well, the adventure is pretty much over now, thanks to Margaret’s cleaning prowess. She had everyone doing a year’s worth of Saturday chores yesterday. We threw out Snoopy’s pillow and cleaned, bleached, washed, scrubbed, (did I say cleaned?) everything. Cleaning the carpets a couple of times, anywhere the dog might have been and everywhere else. Wow! What a time. Our house is usually pretty clean and Saturday is the day when the deep cleaning is done, but Margaret had a mission and we are all glad we had to work so hard. There is not a surface in this house that has not been touched by some kind of cleaning something or the other.
Even the writing board on my desk was cleared off! Unbelievable that any part of my desk would get cleaned, but it really did happen that way. Now, I plan to clean it off one of these days, but it is so hard to know where to start. Different people have nagged me about it at different times and I really will get it done. Ashley had come over once to help me, but she didn’t take the 3 or 4 days necessary. I’m not messy, just organizationally challenged.
Snoopy’s 2-can tomato juice bath was a success so we have a normal smelling house again.
Another exciting thing to me was that when I sent out an e-mail to everyone about my ‘blog, I heard back from people I hadn’t heard from in a long time.
Well, ‘tis Sunday School today and I think that the honorable and knowledgeable Professor Fritz Von Googleheimer will explain the difference between clean and unclean animals in preparation for the story of Cornelius. I love the professor; he is one of my favorite characters. I like them all, really. Anyway, I have to get going, folks, so long and thanks for all the fish, er, thanks for reading.
