Thanks, everybody, for your words of encouragement and good advice. One of my wise friends asked if I ever heard of respecting my elders so that got me thinking. If an elder is someone who is older, then that would be Fig. But if an elder is someone who is higher in rank, then that would be me because I am the aunt. See?
I think the best solution to this problem is to show respect to Fig so that she will show respect to me. That sounds fair, doesn't it?
With this in mind, I, Petra Pot Pie, solemnly swear to let Fig eat her bones without trying to "share" them. That's my first step in showing respect.
That should be easy because I spend most of my time playing alone, anyway. Motch found a new toy for me at a garage sale and I love it, but I can't figure out what it is. It's fun to chew, though, and it won't be long until it joins my other oldies but goodies.
Socks, a Santa hat, and a beetle (now in 3 pieces). I've got some leather shoes that I'm working on, too, and I think you'll like the new and improved look. They need just a little more chewing and then I will show them to you.
