Kickass and Phyllis’s new desk
Kickass, the doorstop dog, joins the keeper in congratulating Phyllis on the occasion of her “new” desk, which compliments her promotion to
Supreme Commander of all matters having to do with the keeper’s life, including the current book project of “Treeson: an APOLOGIA to trees,” that looks at the 35 years the keeper spent writing newspaper columns and stories.
That Phyllis deserves an imposing desk with the qualities of a queen’s throne pleases the keeper, and that he was instrumental in Phyllis finding the desk at the “Habitat” store pleases him even more. The $50 price for such a quality piece of furniture makes him almost giddy.
The keeper will be lobbying to double Phyllis’s salary from it’s current level of zero, and he vows to ease Phyllis’s responsibilities by at least learning how to answer his own phone.
