Watercolor Wednesday – Waiting for the Fat Man

waiting for mail

What time is it????? IT’S WEDNESDAY! TIME FOR SOME ART! Greetings to my daily friends. And, if you’re just joining Us, you need to know that Wednesdays are Watercolor days here at The Scottie Chronicles.

It’s the time of year when the fat man comes to visit. Yep. That’s right! The mailman! I keep a keen watch for him every day. He’s been bringing me things. The peeps won’t let me see them until Christmas. Drats.

What You Learned Today:

  • We Scotties are tenacious when it comes to the mailman.
  • We wait. And we wait.
  • We watch. And we watch.
  • Until he walks up the sidewalk and sticks things in the tiny slot next to the door.
  • Ooooooh!
  • I love it when that happens.

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

  1. Our mailman is a lady, and she stuffs things in the box at the end of the yard. She usually does it while I’m in the back room too, so I can’t see her and alert the house. Phooey!

    I can smell the mailperson when they are two houses away. No matter where I am at, in the yard or the house, I just know it’s my duty to let everyone know the MAIL is here!!

    Arrrroooo, Toby

    Stuart know you know that the fat man is bringing you lots of stuff!!! AND they are probably just trying to figure out where they are going to keep it all!!! No way you can’t snoot it out!!! I mean when they go for a walk or something or to the store can’t you just poke a peek? I mean Monster Shane already found hers and ripped it open like it was Christmas morning!! So I hope he brings you ton of stuff and I hope you get to sleep in late and get treats and belly rubs galore!!!!! Merry Christmas to my friend!!!

  12. Dougall says:

    I’m waiting too, for my new harness!

  13. So exciting! Hope you get lots of lovely things!
