….the dog pooped outside this morning.
I sat close to this chair and applauded him all the way.
He looked at me and circled once.
I stood in my pajamas and cheered loudly in encouragement.

He circled one more time, got ready and then the heavens opened up and the angels sang the hallelujah chorus and sprinkles fell from the sky.
Houston, we have completed our mission. 🙂
