George and Alan plead their case

George: Mom, don't you think it's about time you bought us a new Jolly Ball?



Alan: Please? We're giving you our most pathetic looks here. Work with us.



George: Imagine how much nicer your pictures would look if we had a shiny new ball to play with.
Me: But a new ball – one that you had yet to break and deflate – would be much harder to pick up.



George: Hrrmph. She's got a point.

  21. That last shot is sweet. Tell me, don't YOU end up having to retrieve the ball a lot when it sneaks under the fence?

  22. Oh dear. Is there a jolly ball fund?

  23. Geez! the condition of that jolly ball looks quite familiar. I'm pretty sure I have at least a dozen of them around here in pretty much the same shape. Sometimes I take the time to blow them back up and they're deflated again in less than a day. I swear the horses really like them better that way.
