Anyhoo... Jack's latest (alleged) crime is a case for which I cannot, with conscience, mount a defense. Though evidence is circumstantial, a jury of Helen Kellers, sitting in a court of Judge Tommy (deaf, dumb, and blind kid) the Pinball Wizard, would not let him off.
JACK ATE A SOLAR SIDEWALK LIGHT!
Well, technically, he only ATE about 1/3 of it, chewed 1/3,
and left the remaining 1/3 for evidence. It's not like the local mailbox-robber or house-breaker-inner dropped by for a tasty plastic snack. Copper Jack only eats paper plates, and my Sweet, Sweet Juno does not deign to chew things. She hoards them in her house, perhaps carries them from place to place, but never chews. Which leaves only my little Jack as the prime suspect.
It does not help his case that Jack chewed the nose off the fake resin dog that Hick has standing guard on the front porch.
I'm sure Jack was only trying to make friends with this pooch! He's not a BAD DOG! Look at this little guy... That's Jack, practicing his courtroom demeanor to elicit sympathy from the jury.
He DOES, however, like to lick and chew! For which he's well-equipped.
Jack seems to be shining a little brighter these days...
