And I've written other posts about how strange he is in general.
But today last night I feel in love with my weiner dog, Oskar, all over again.
And it is because of this!
I saw this really cool wreath recently here and I became enamored of making one.
I showed my husband.
He did not share my enthusiasm.
"What books are you going to cut up to make this?" he said.
"Don't worry, it won't be any of yours," I replied.
So I dug through some paperbacks languishing in the back of the bookshelves and I put two on the table along with my wreath form and hot glue gun. Oddly, the books disappeared.
"Where are my paperbacks?" I asked him.
"Oh, I might want to read those someday!" he replied.
"You want to read some books about lustful maidens falling in love with their gardeners/and or stablemen?" I asked sarcastically.
"Well, you never know...I just might," he said, and then he added, "that wreath looks dumb anyway!"
So I dug further and found another book and put it on the table. Apparently he might want to read a book someday about exercising your face followed by a book about eliminating boll weavils in the cotton fields.
He is dumb like that.
But last night my weiner dog, Oskar, made me love him.
We had taken our granddaughters out to a little picnic at the playground and got home quite a bit later then usual.
Poor Oskar must have been famished because on the living room floor was a ripped up book. Pages, strewn everywhere! (I took this picture today so you can see how absolutely darling this sweet, little angel is!)
And now, my friends, I can make my wreath!
I just love that dog!
And if you want to make this wreath and run into the same problem...you may or may not want to try rubbing some meat juice (ewwww) on a book you don't want.
Not that I did.
