What you see above is some of her latest handy work. The spigot came from the same type jug as seen in the second photo, but was from the jug I use for the shower. That jug has always doubled as a shower tank and in between showers as a source of water for dish washing, hand cleaning and any water that I don't use for drinking or cooking with. This latest act of sabotage pretty well dedicates that jug to showers only. :(
Anyway... My neighbor stopped by with some groceries yesterday to make Stuffed Bell peppers out of. He didn't know how to make them and neither did his wife, but he said he had had a hankering for some for weeks. He asked if I knew how and I told him yes so he asked if I would make them and then go to their place for supper and he'd have other grub made. Sounded good to me so I said yes.
Needless to say I decided it was time for another shower since I'd be around other humans besides myself so after the shower I forgot to remove the pump from the jug and put the spigot back in the jug. I left it laying on the battery that now runs the shower pump. Pepper must have watched me lay that spigot on the battery and between the time I got dressed and ready to leave she had to have done the damage because she was chained up from that time until I got back from the neighbors. That would have given her about 45 minutes to do her thing because when I got back it was that way and she hadn't had access to it before then.
Now... this gets me to thinking and now that I think about it about every time she has chewed up something I'd either moved it or handled it shortly prior to that. I assume she must watch what I do and then decide to chew on what I handle? I usually can't be outside without her being real close by. (outside the It'll Du and shower when I use both or just trailing along behind me.) I guess I'm going to have to start chaining her out of sight from me every time I do something?
And now back to the Supper. The stuffed peppers turned out great according to the neighbors. I thought they were very good to. (patting myself on the back) ;) He made some KILLER home fries with a number of different seasonings and had a fresh bottle of Black Jack to go along with it. After that he fired up the generator and we watched a movie called Cool World on their big screen TV / DVD. I have to admit that it was NOT my kind of movie and I'd never watch it again, but I did enjoy the company food and booze.
