~A Picture Speaks 1000 Words~

Periodically when washing towels I will throw some of Ripley's toys in the washer and dryer. Last week he caught me as I was moving towels and toys from the washer to the dryer. I usually try not to let him see me washing his toys, but I didn't this time. The first picture shows

him looking in the dryer at a toy. The second picture shows him sticking his head in to try to get one of his toys. I don't think he realized if he would have put his paws up on the dryer, he probably could have reached at least one of his toys.

But the last picture, he is just staring in at his toys. It didn't matter that he has TONS of other toys to play with. After I started the dryer, he kept going back in the laundry room looking for his toys. He was thrilled the next morning when I pulled his three toys out of the dryer. It was really funny, but I guess you had to be there.

Friday/Saturday Janet had a garage sale. She very graciously allowed me to take my left over stuff from my garage sale to put in hers. I had a loaded my vehicle Thursday, and Ripley had to ride in my lap because his seat was full also. I know this is a "no-no," but he needed to get out of the house as well. Today, after church, I went and picked up the rest of my stuff. And, brought back a loaded vehicle. I made $137, but not really sure what they sold. I'm getting ready to go pull it all out of the vehicle and see what I can get rid of.

Have a great week!

Hi Cheryl..
Ripley is soo cute!! I want a furbaby *smile*. Those photos do tell the whole story. Talk about Garage sales, you are just reminding me of what I need to do. The sorting part is hard because it's hard for me to let go lol. But I know I need to. Thanks for sharing this post made me smile.

Ripley is so adorable! It sounds like you had quite a weekend too. Yard sales will wear a person out. Blessings to you this week!

Melanie said...

Oh, Cheryl.. I just chuckled as I looked at these pictures of Ripley. Our sweet four-legged friend would have been doing the exact same thing! :)

Angie said...

Ripley is adorable! He's just pining away over his toys, isn't he? I bet he was glad to have them back. Wilson would be mortified if I washed one of his three bears, which, sad to say, the time has come. Maybe I can get Steve to take him for a ride while I do so, hah hah!

How cute! Ripley is soo cute!

This was a beautiful weekend for a garage sale! We had one too on Saturday. We did really good! But, I did not want to do another one and I was NOT bringing that stuff back, it went to goodwill! :-)

Hey there!
Glad to hear you made some money with your garage sale! Helps make all the work getting everything ready worth it.

LOVED the photos of sweet Ripley trying to figure out why in the world you would have HIS toys in that big machine! Precious.

P.S. Love your new background!

WOW!!! First I saw the photos and nothing else and I wondered what happened? But when your little face & Ripley appeared I knew I was at the right place! God bless your day & the treasures others found from your sale!

I love that Ripley! He brings a smile to my face! The pictures are funny. I have never seen a dog so attached to his toys. You have him spoiled. I want to be Ripley! LOL
