Noll's Tale of Whoa Turns to Woe!


Whilst I was walking My Own around last night, we happened upon the catnip patch. "Whoa" I commanded. And, she obeyed. In control, I took my leisure. I nibbled around the edges. Sniffed for foreign smells. Got tangled in last year's growth. Unfortunately, I took a little too long. Whilst I lingered, the wheels in her head had been turning.

Without missing a beat, she pulled clippers from her pocket. Standing in front of the patch (my catnip patch), she declared, "No time like the present."

So quickly I went from "WHOA" to "WOE!"

I dare say, My Own is cleverly fast. I watched in shock and awe as leaves, grass and catnip stalks all ended up in the same unceremonious heap!

A thunderclap exploded in my brain as I realized
it was all going into the compost pile.

Whatever happened to waste not want nip?

When we read clippers, we thought you were going to get your nails clipped. Nip or nails...both should be left alone!

Not to worry! New nip is emerging in the main bed. I can see it now that the old stalks are gone. Once again, I overreacted...it is my nature and, some say, part of my charm ;)
