Kickass, the doorstop dog, says that it appears the keeper is pregnant, again. Those of you with even modest memory capabilities might remember that some time ago the keeper won a baby-bump contest with three great daughters in law, and proceeded to lose 25 pounds—at least twins, as an act of contrition.
Since that time, three magnificent babies have joined the clan, and 5 pounds of the keeper’s 25 pound bump lose have mysteriously returned. He would like to think it is akin to the country girl who claimed she got pregnant from sitting on a toilet seat.
The truth is, of course, it is the season of sweet-corn, cold beer and brats that are doing him in. He can’t seem to do anything about it, and sympathizes with the country girl.
