More Constructions

I was in the middle of my post breakfast meditations when Master's crew showed up and started making unacceptable banging and crashing sounds outside of the dog cave again!

Master claims to be building a new front porch on my estate, but I believe he is really just running some sort of tool time amusements park.

To investigate further, I re-enabled the spy cameras previously installed for just such an occasion.

Look! Here he is explaining the alleged plans to Jarrod. Those do not look like plans to the Mango, just seems to be some lines on paper. Yuh, I am not so easily fooled.

Then he put Jarrod to work doing most curious activities which do not seem even remotely related to a new porch.

At least somebody is having fun...

See what I mean? There are no constructions going on here.

Looks to me like they are just moving the manly tools about the interior of the barn.

Aha! I knew it! Look at Jay! Obviously a ride on the big machine was his sole purpose in being here.

Whilst others need to learn how to wait their turn. Humph.

At least they can entertain themselves.

Another long day is in store for the Mango. I can tell.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. I think I am cured of my ouchies! I only have one more day of antibiotics and am not taking the pain meds anymore (but still take the anti in flame stories for a bit). Thanks for all your good thoughts! I KNOW it made a relentlessly huge difference.

Why are you letting these wacky guys on your estate? They seem to be very confused. Glad to hear that you are feeling much better though.

Looks like an undisputed cases of "boys with their toys" to us...

Glad the ouchies are gone.

♥Mona + Prissy + Angel Weenie♥ said...

Oh Mango,

So glad to hear your ouchie is better. Why come them boys are always makiing noice when we are trying to sleep but Mommy says we sleep al the time. She's just jealous cause she can't lay around like me.


The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

boys will be boys huh? well Mango, it seems that here where I live a lot of people keep cats in their shops. when we walk by them at night i know exactly the windows where the kitties are. i am not sure what the purpose of this is, perhaps they are the new watchdogs?

the magic sleigh said...

Wooos Mango Man!
I think those boys are just rrying to be as manly as woo, They have so much Mango to look at everyday and it makes hem feel inferior, so they play with there big toys to compensate and desturbs my poor Mango from getting good naps.

I am glad you are starting to feel better, I will continue the sibe-vibes and
~puppy kisses!~

What a fun post. Say, is that a moose beside your stuffie????

Gus said...

Hey...We are familiar with "contractor" humor, but yours has reached new highs....and be careful not to get too strenuous with your recently cured ouchies...we need ya there for the long haul.

Ready to come help with the digging


Achieve1dream said...

Yay Mango! Glad you're getting better but how the heck are you getting any rest around there?? Sheesh!

Murphy Dogg said...

Sorry you gotta deal with those guys, Mango. It must really be testing your meditation powers.
My dad says that a power tool amusement park would be awesome. Mama says he's a dork.

Mango Man, they are so fortunate to have a great snoopervisor like you. Where's PeeWee?

Gracie=^o.o^= said...

Thank you for stopping by today. It is always nice to visit with you. Your words were so kind, made the mom have a little tear in her eye. She still misses the Sassy and I know I have my job cut out for me filling those paws. I am an inside kitty, while Sas was not. This way I have more time to work my magic and help her to heal.
I would be more than happy to be your friend. In fact I considered you to be one of the first I met when I started out with the blogging so that would make us old friends. My mom is working on making a new link thingie and your name is going to be there as soon as the mom gets to it. She is an old secretary so she has to start with the A names and work the way down. My old like is still up and you are for sure on it.
Yes, I think you are going to have many many days I am sorry to say where you will not get too much rest. Where on earth did your folks find this crew? I am not sure, based on their comments, that they are the best. Please keep an eye on them and let the folks know if you see any problems going on out there.

Mack said...

All you need know is Lilly to come over and supervise the guys!

So glad your ouchies are healing nicely

Smushie Ranch said...

Thanks for the wonderful post Mango! We're so sorry to hear your napping and routine was interrupted by the pesky humans.

Glad to hear you're feeling better!

Scout and Freyja said...

Mango, we hope that you don't nap too long. It looks like that crew of yours might need some snooper-vision!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Good question, what ARE the Dunkin Donuts? The humans here are all in a tizzy because there is finally a DD opening here in OP, and it is only about five minutes from home.

Glad to hear you are doing better, Mango. Hope things quiet down around there so you can get back to your meditating.

Woos, the OP Pack

Kelly said...

Oh Mango, it's clear that all of those guys just came to the estate to get a glimpse of your relentlessly huge & famous self. It's all a bluff!

I am so glad that you are almost ouch-less. Take it easy on your leggies, ok?

Stella said...

Maybe, Mango, they are building you a nice new deck, like Huffle's pawrents made for him. And he IS enjoying!

So keep your ears open and tell us what you are hearing from these, uhh, worker boys.


Tobi said...

Glad you are feeling better Mango. Hopefully the constructions and the motley crew will be done soon so you and get back to full days of R&R in quiet.

Sam said...

Glad you're feeling better! Now, if only you could relax in peace without all of that banging!

Martha said...

Oh Mango, is there no peace! The noise on the video - how is a dog supposed to sleep.
We think you should get your Master to take up knitting - it would be much quieter.

Golden Samantha said...

Dear Mango, Sorry its taken so long to catch up - I see that indeed, there is a lot of noise going on over there - from lousy carpenter jokes to stone moving machines. Sheeesh, can a pup get any sleep? I do believe they are there to catch sight of your bootiful large self. So glad you are feeling better finally though and look forward to more news of the constructions! Funnyfunny!!!
Hugs xo

Anonymous said...

OMG love this post, sooooo funny!!

Gracie=^o.o^= said...

It's me again, clearing up the confusion of the mom here. She thought you were Mango the Maltise, which if she would just look, that isn't the case.
I am sorry but I cannot get good help these days. She didn't know that I had two Mango friends. So ignore the confusion and let's just not bother with my mom and we will continue to visit and get to know each other better.
What is a kitty to do?

OM dawgs, Mango Man... how are you going to get your handsome rest with all that noise? I tell you, those carpenters better pay you BIG time...

The Army of Four said...

First off - I'm really glad you're feeling better!!! YEA!
Secondly - last year about this time, some guys showed up at Ao4 HQs and did a bunch of digging and stuff. I thought we were finally getting a moat, but they filled it in with concrete. What a waste!
Thirdly, this is from Amber:

Two blonde carpenters were working on a house. The one who was nailing down siding would reach into his nail pouch, pull out a nail and either toss it over his shoulder or nail it in.
The other, figuring this was worth looking into, asked, "Why are you throwing those nails away?"
The first explained, "If I pull a nail out of my pouch and it's pointed toward me, I throw it away 'cause it's defective. If it's pointed toward the house, then I nail it in!"
The second blonde got completely upset and yelled, "You moron! The nails pointed toward you aren't defective! They're for the other side of the house!"

See what I have to put up with around here?

brooke said...

How are you supposed to get your beauty sleep with all that noise? Not that you need to get any more beautiful, you're studly as is!
How long is that construction going to take?!

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Poor Mango, I would not like to have workmen around here like that!!
You have done a real cute post tho.
I laughed out loud! Good job!!
Glad your ouch is better!
Men and their toys! They are all a like!
Hope you get some rest Mango, Bambi and her MOm

JulieandCaleb said...

Linda and her corgi crew mentioned you had an owie, so we thought we'd come over and send good thoughts your way, even though it sounds like you're well on the way to recovery!

Mollie Jo and Bobo said...

Glad to hear you are better! Can't wait to see the new "Porch".

Oskar said...

Hmm, the whole building stuff story does seem quite suspect. I'm glad none of that is happening here as I am busy in my yard chewing on an antler that my friend sent me. Can you guess who, BOL!

Marjie said...

Those worker guys just want tool amusement parks and rides on big machines. My porch is concrete. Daddy cannot make excuses of constructioning it. And Mommy does not like those snow plow guys, so she has a "4WD" truck (whatever that means) and says she'll bully her way through snow drifts. I think 4WD means my brothers get to dig her out while I chase snowballs. It also means big machines cannot disturb me.

You sooooo know your Master Mango!!! Hope the day goes fast for you!!!

YAY for you feeling better, Mango! I have to agree with Khyra... too much testosterone in one spot... Though I think you topped all the guys with your humongously huge testosterone levels!


Asta said...

Brillant post Mango - we really enjoyed it.

Delighted to hear that you are feeling much better too.

take care of yourself with all that work going on .....

Mango you need to go out and drive that tractor.. Why should they have all the fun?

1000 Goldens said...

Mango Man, I cannot believe Master was creating a ruckus, when you were in the final stages of your recovery. Men folk are like that when it comes to the utilization of power tools. It is one of the great mysteries of life.

tula monstah said...

Tool time.. on a new porch? but umm.. tell master my room above the tool time planning room isn't done yet! would it come with those handsome tool boys too?

where's the pee wee? at tutoring?:0 heh heh heh..

Moose said...

Glad your bottom is better Mango Man! Are your teeth sore or something? I can't figure what other explanation there could be for that Moose stuffie still being intact! Speaking of intact... I hear my labrapal pee wee is slated for his tutoring tomorrow? Take it easy on him and tell him not to worry he won't even miss them!
P.S. There will be no snuggling from my fluffy pal. Sometimes I try to share my stuffy with her and she gets a bit grumbly about it. Hmph!
P.P.S. Momma thinks the tool time amusement park is pretty funny!

Eric said...

Haa, those boyz are pretty funny Mango. Xpect their Mom's were glad to get them out from under their feetsies and leave them in the big boys playground. Did they figure out how many men to fit the light bulb? I think I know - is it one to hold the light bulb and 3 to turn his ladder?

Wiry loves and kisses Eric xxx

Linda said...

Hey Mango,
Glad to hear you are feeling better. Snickers had to take antibiotics for a sinus infection, yuck! We can hardly wait to see the new porch. Mama would have been cringing when they tore away those bricks. She hates messes too.

Did you really pee in his coffee...twice? Yeesch...

BTW...I'm assuming that Peewee er Dexter is on his way for an EXTENDED visit here...

We'll be expecting him around midnight....

Kisses, Darling...


Agatha and Archie said...

Hee hee you have to admit that it is better than watching TV....We are SOOOO glad you are feeling better!! Listen tell your brother that we will be waiting here for when he comes and will AHEN take him to his tutoring..Your Mom will NEVER know that he didn't go to get tutored....Love A+A

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
Your Master has a very interesting crew working for him!
Glad to know you are feeling better!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Maxmom said...

On a serious note...hope you survive all the changes there - Im sure it will look awesome in the end. AND the best news...our bud Mango is on the mend! Yippee!
Lotsalicks and love

Ziggy Stardust said...

Mango, I think you should guard your cave until they are gone. If you leave they might use some of those tools and take it away. Be on guard please.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

ocmist said...

Goodness, a watchdog's work is NEVER done! At least your Mom can trust you to keep an eye on things!

Silly 2-leggers don't make sense a lot of the time! BG

BRUTUS said...

Wow - the Masters' work is never done I guess. Hope that in spite of disturbing your huge self they can at least be entertaining with their human antics! I always get a laugh out of watching them figure things out! HA!

BTW, we did our Paw it Forward post today, and showcased your fabulous pressies! Already have one taker, and we can't wait to go shopping. Thanks for including us!!

Brutus the Frenchie
P.S. our word verification was "coment". Ironic, huh?

Cinnamon and Mint said...

Glad that your injury is now healed and you are back in action!

Oskar said...

Mango, I just posted a relentlessly huge blog post about your pressies and the Paw It Forward, so come check it out.

Biggie-Z said...

Hilarious! I like to walk around and check out what the guys are doing too. If it involves tools, and manly things, I like to be a part of it even if I don't know what's going on. Because, you know, sometimes you just have to hang with the big guys. None of that sissy cuddling stuff with Momma.

You should totally go out there and hang with them.


TwoSpecialWires said...

Mango, these posts are better'n the Sunday comics! Makes the peeps laugh right out loud, which directly relates to the speed and velocity of our tail wags. Keep 'em comin'.

Oh, yeah. The other thing. We are way glad you are getting over your ouchies. Take it easy. Let those guys do the lifting.
