My [Finking] Skool Night

"Thinking is the hardest work there is,
which is probably the reason so few engage it in."
Yeur Little Reufus in April 2011... Naught Yet Ready Habbing Engaged in Hard Work
Thiss is the words ob the great Henry Ford
what inbented a ole fashion trolley
similar butt naught identical teu MY the trolley...

Ole Henry was a pretty good finker,
butt naught much ob a speller.

Now... if Yeu whir teu ask my the Mom,
she wood tell Yeu that I am natchew-rully more ob a Acktor
than a Finker...

And that iss why I find myself
wunts a week in
The Business Yard
And ass Yeu know...
this here is lass week
Blurry pickshers deu teu dreary weaffer.
what whee are joining in progress...
and ah oh...
There are some soldiers down
deu teu this awful hot weaffer
(and ok... storms)
on the odder side ob the fence.

Whee are running a bit short on time
on a counta a bariety ob reasons
just one ob witch is
that darn blinking traffick light a gain...
So I pose fur one sweet picksher
And in side whee go.
Here is me sitting ass whee prepare fur
Finking Class...
and down yonder iss my friend Cooper
wheu is a berry large (standard) and all so hamsum peudle.

It whas a berry busy night
and whee did naught haff time
teu take many pickshers.

I am showing Yeu my Habbies.

Whee did work on our
FigYeur 8s

and whee did deu so wif
a nodder Steudent and Trainer
working obbosit ob us on the 8...
and meeting us in the middle...

I whas a Champ at it.
I ignored what I whas posed teu ignore.
And I paid a ttention teu what
I whas posed teu pay a ttention...
and my the Trainer whas proud!!!

Whee all so did learn:
Call teu Close wif Trainer sitting
[come and sit on the lebt side ob the Trainer]
Call teu Front wif Trainer sitting 
[come and sit in front ob the Trainer 
abter cookie toss]

Whee all so did workings on our
Flat Work
what is turns and halts and pibbots.

And whee did work on our
Call Teu Front
and maintaining a moobing front
[what means facing the Trainer,
staying straight in front ob her,
as she moobs in any direckshun]

Mose Steudents moobed a long wif their Trainer's hands,

butt I habbed a hard time under standing,
so my the Trainer whas teu point teu her mouf
teu main tain my a ttention.

I fought this meant 
Jumb ub and gibbs her a

Closing the books on a berry success full ebening.

I mean, she had string chees 
in her mouf...
What wood Yeu fink teu deu?

Be fore I close,
I whill share wif Yeu

Words from My Instrucktor teu my Trainer... "I really enjoy you and Reufus... I was glad to see that you and Reufus did so well with so much of what we worked on!!! He was trying really hard last night and you were doing a wonderful job channeling his attention and energy!"

More Words from Ole Henry Ford... "Whether you think you can, or you think you can't... you're right."

Words from Me... "I fink I can learn teu fink!"


  1. Oh I just think you can! Your teacher's quote to your humans must have meant a lot!

  2. Reufus you are so good. Have a happy 4th July.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Dude... our mentals are exhausted just reading about all the thinking you had to do! Don't know how you can manage all that! We're off to have a nap now so that we'll be refreshed when mom comes home from work.

  4. Reuf,

    You have accomplished so much and what you instructor said ""I really enjoy you and Reufus... I was glad to see that you and Reufus did so well with so much of what we worked on!!! He was trying really hard" about sums it up. You are a terrific Golden ambassador, and you and The Mom make a great team.
    Have a safe 4th, we will be staying inside with the AC blasting.

    Love you,

    Hamish & Sophie
    Auntie Sheila & Uncle Bob

  12. You are a very good thinker, Mr. Reufus! We hope you and your Mom have a great 4th of July!


  13. My darling boy, you are a thinker and a mover and a shaker all rolled up into one. I don't think there will be any obstacle that you and your the Mom/Trainer will not master. Why? Because the love you have for each other will serve you well.
