I am not afraid. Not of mops or brooms or vaccuums. Mom insists on using them, but I don't like them...I want to bite them. I also like to bite those little electric foam whisks, their big brothers the hand-held blenders and I have even been known to take on a giant whisk thingy that the macon uses! I have no fear...all you noise making machines and cleaning devices beware...Ellwood takes no prisoners!! Everyone is now free to spend a weekend without work...I have vowed to take on the entire world and free it of the devices I fear not!! Enjoy!
