I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. There are more leaves in the house. Lady Human went to church again.
Me: Leaves have nothing to do with church, Stella.
Stella: If you are not jumping in a big pile of leaves there, then…first question…where are all these leaves coming from? And… second question…what happened when you went?
Me: Okay, first answer: all the leaves fell off the trees a few weeks ago and there are still many, many on the ground.
Stella: A likely story.
Me: Second answer: we did all the things we usually do at church – praying, singing, greeting each other, and lighting candles this time for Christmas.
Stella: Candles? Those thick fire sticks?
Me: I suppose you could call them that.
Stella: All the humans had those fire sticks?
Stella: On fire?
Stella: For shame, Lady Human! Those can be very dangerous around big piles of leaves!
