Gotta get a bigger BOX

New pup, Gus, is getting bigger every day. He’s almost outgrown his “computer box” as he bangs around in it every time he rolls over during the night.

We looked at Sam’s Club, the HEB and even stopped at the Office Depot to see what they have; all for naught. None of them had anything to offer any larger than we currently possessed. The best we could find was the box (attached to a pallet) at the Sam’s Club that was holding dog beds; they wouldn’t take us up on our offer.

I got to thinkin’ as we were driving home. Monday morning, I’m gonna call FedEx and see what they will contract for to pick up Gus every evening, fly him to Memphis overnight and return him each morning? This sounds like my best bet; depending on their offer.


  1. There's a really simple solution that you have clearly overlooked. Take one of your grandchildren to the Toys-R-Us store. Avoid ping pong ball and meteor showers along the way. Buy age- and sex-appropriate toy. Toy-to-child, box-to-Gus. Receipt-to-Patsy.

  2. I try my best to stay as far away from that Toys-R-Us store as possible. Besides, with my grandkids, another toy would mean that their parents would have to sell their house and move into a bigger one.

  3. It would have to be a pretty big toy. Have not seen a picture of Gus yet but it sounds like he is getting large.

  4. Anonymous, ya need to get a real name!

  5. I wonder if "Anonymous" is my better half? :-)

  6. I'm pretty sure that Anonymous is your better half's brother!
