Beyond This Point

        Replace all the pillows!

      Everything has to be a major project in this place. All of a sudden, Neil tells Sally, “replace all the pillows.” I wondered if someone had a pillow fight with the feathers flying all around.  In a house this size, that is a morning project. Since it included the pillow sheets, I had an idea. I sorted through the newest ones and washed them. Then, I took them to the lab and dressed them up as ghosts for my robot vacuums. Abby, one of the maids saw what I was doing and jumped in to help. We made some great ghost covers for the vacuums and I covered every robot in the house – even the robot housekeeper and bellboy. Thurston ran into one early in the morning and jumped out of his slippers. Fortunately, this wonderful man is a kid at heart and laughed at our idea. I set the vacuum timers to come out early and run most of the night. I even put a ghastly sounding recording on a few to meet Mr. Drogash’s return to his bedroom late at night. We can’t miss the opportunity for him to jump out of his slippers either.

Kingston doesn’t like the ghost robots however. I watched him growl at one and try to bite off its sheet with scary eyes and teeth. I don’t know if he thinks they are intruders or just trying to retrieve his bone I put on several robots. I place tasty doggy snacks on some of the robots for him because he likes to chase them around the room at night and when he comes up to my room to sleep, he’s nice and tired. Abby made a ghost mask for Kingston and I put a sensor on it for several robots to chase him! It’s so funny to watch him hide, go around chairs and play. He’s the smartest dog I’ve ever known. I was only ten when I met Jim and Kingston; Jim caught me playing one night -

I wondered why Kingston was wearing an oversized vest. “What’s that vest on Kingston?” I asked.

“That’s his spy vest. I keep my tools in the pockets.”

The poor dog was overloaded. One of the pockets must have had a dozen golf balls in it. Davia wanted to show off her stash, and opened one of the pockets too fast, some crystals falling out. “Whoops,” she said, packing them in too quickly and trying to block my view. 

Here it is, six years later and I still love to play with him. Rikky the robot follows Mr. Drogash to bed late at night. If Drogash stops, Rikky stops, if he turns left, Rikky does also. Tonight, he’s dressed up as Frankenstein. I hope poor Mr. Drogash doesn’t jump too far out of his slippers.
