Who Is That Knocking On My Door?

Who Is That Knocking On My Door?

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

I was standing in my shower with my eyes closed... instant sunshine, vision of walking in a lush, green meadow of wildflowers... lavender, yellow, red flowers of all kinds, green grasses, leaves.  The breeze blowing my skirt making it flare out, I felt coolness on my legs, my feet... my arms, my face........ my hair blowing away from my face... I'm running ever so slowly in my daydream, shaking my hair slowly from side to side, my hands constantly fluffing it out... my hands touch my cheeks to... find a happy smile on my... lips!

Bam!  Bam!  Bam!  I'm shocked completely out of my daydream!  What is that loud noise!?  I stand there, my heart has begun to beat ...fast!  I'm ready to fight... to run the opposite way (but, where to?  I'm in the shower, I can't go down the drain!).  Bam!  Bam!  Bam!  Bam!  Bam!

Someone is hitting the bathroom door!  How can that be?  The house is locked up... I'm alone, with the exception of our Pups!  I don't hear them barking....

Bam!  Bam!  Bam!  I grab my big, fluffy, yellow towel... step out onto the plush, lavender rug in front of the shower/tub... I ease to the door when I'm startled backwards from the sound of 'bam!' once again.  This time I feel like I want to know what that sound is.... I have a feeling I 'know'......

I opened the door to see.... Kissy Fairchild looking up at me with his teddy bear face... 'Kissy!  It's you who is knocking on my door!'  I begin to talk 'baby talk; to him.... 'Kissy, why are you knocking on my door?'

He becomes happy because the bathroom door is no longer closed... he just nonchalantly 'plops' down in front of the opened door.  It was Kissy!  He was 'knocking on the door'... he doesn't like closed doors!

Normally, I leave the bathroom door open... I wasn't thinking when I closed it.  Kissy will not let anyone have a closed door around him... he has to know what is behind it... or maybe he worries if he can't see us... :)))

Kissy Fairchild does... not... like closed doors!


  1. I can just hear Kissy now!! No Kissy doesn't like closed doors! He couldn't see you and he wanted to know why. He didn't want you to leave him and he wanted to make sure that you were alright. Can't blame him for that! He loves you and Skip! Love, Ms Nancy

    1. Ha! Kissy loves to lay in the doorway to be sure... no one can close a door around him. He will move his body into the doorway just right... so, the door 'can't be closed'!

      Kissy and Chadwick are special Pups! :)))))))))))))))))))))))))

      Have a good day, Ms Nancy! Love, Gloria

  2. Jeeze that's right out of Psycho and ends with a Kissy!

    1. Hi Amy,

      Ha! That was so funny, your comment! I love how you said 'ends with a Kissy'! That was fun, precious.

      I hope you have a wonderful day! Love, Granny Gee/Gloria
