And here she is dancing to “Alexander’s Ragtime Band” by Irving Berlin. This 78 was made in 1911. I’m sure this isn’t the only Mabel who enjoyed this song.
Head banging practice. Not recommended while eating, but we work it in where we can.
Hanging at the front steps. I think she was using the sign for milk instead of saying hello. She’ll live.
And here as some Thanksgiving weekend pics. This will probably get up in 2 or 3 parts.
This monkey got suited up and ran straight to her swing. And didn’t stop running. I think this is the only non-blurry picture of her as a monkey.
She went to a raging party at her friend Amelie’s house, where she refueled on cheese puffs.
Only out of costume did she slow down enough to play.
And try and start a band with some of the older cool kids.
She told us she really wanted to go trick or treating by trying to eat her way out of the house.
Not bad for six houses. But I clearly have some things to teach her.
The next morning we went for a walk of course, but she was still filled with sugary energy. So she got a few practice swings with her hammer. It’s the same one I would use as a kid putting nails into boards at my grandpas house.
