    Give Bella some slightly smaller ears, and change the audio to “Mr. Max, time to get out of the water”, and you’ve got half my childhood on video right there. I feel your pain, Bella, I feel your pain.

      Heh. I’m told that when I was very young, I hated to get into the bathtub and once in, hated to get out again.

        I hear you! My parents had to battle to get me INTO the tub, then battle even harder to get me OUT of it! I was too busy running tactical maneuvers with the soap/battleship and the sponge/aircraft carrier to leave, even if my lips were blue and the water was cold.

          I resemble that statement. My Mom’s rule was when my lips were blue, out of the water.

            Mine, too!

            Having a dog is like having a kid who never outgrows the Terrible Twos. Worth it though—they’re never too old to cuddle. 🙂

    Well, I can see it’s time for one o’me favorite clips from one o’me favorite fab gear films, then:

      Rule Britannia! One o’ me favorites, too! They were so incredibly fab. There was nothing like them and there hasn’t been since.

      Genius. Bizarre, but genius nonetheless.

      One thing that’s nice to see is how many people I see under the age of 17 who LOVE the Beatles. One girl I saw at the store recently let out a shriek at the magazine stand. ‘I LOOOVE RINGO STAR!” she said and grabbed the magazine and showed it to her giggling friends. I looked at the lady beside me and said “Wow! SO glad she wasn’t talking about Justin Bieber!”

      As long as people appreciate the Beatles, there maybe hope for the world yet.

    I remember being at the lake when I was little — it was late summer evening. My mom wanted me to get out of the water so we could go home. I told her that I was FINALLY having fun and didn’t want to get out. I remember thinking that was a pretty compelling argument — that my day had been just so-so until that moment and therefore I should be allowed to steep a little longer in the lake.

    I like the way the chorus says, “BELL-uh” in that pretty pleading way.

      Seems like a perfectly reasonable lawyer-tot argument to me.

      That’s how I feel about retirement: I’m finally having fun!!

    I’m betting those women were praying Bella got out of the water so they didn’t have to invoke the dreaded:

    Don’t make me come in there after you!

    • Not That Mike The Other Mike January 10, 2016 / 7:02 pm

      I suspect that Bella has figured out that ain’t gonna happen, so the longer she stays in the water, the more she wins.

      • Kar January 11, 2016 / 4:00 am

        You can practically hear Bella’s yelping, “You’re not my real mom!”

    I swear that dog is speaking English! I swear I hear her say “No I won’t!”☺️

      I heard “I don’t wanna.”
