Royal Inspection

Yesterday, we told you how the hu-dad spent the day painting a room (and we helped by playing outside).  Hu-dad was painting the bonus room – the room over the garage – which is being turned into an upstairs den to go with our guest bedrooms.  (Since we moved in to this house two years ago, the room has been used as a storage room, but hu-dad decided that anything we didn’t need after two years just needed to be tossed).  With the painting complete, hu-dad began moving furniture into the room, but a royal inspection was demanded by Queen Natasha the Evil.  And, of course, what the Queen demands, the Queen gets.

    Ice sez: Ooooooweeeell, QNTE, I sure hope this passed your Royal Inspection, ’cause I think it’s beautiful. All those nice soft places to cuddle up for a nap. What more could a regal Sibe such as yourself ask for? Enjoy.
