The Item for Day8: Eight Maids a’Milking
The Person all caught up and Ready to Go: Me
Mrs. Baxter called her eight maids to the foyer to discuss the pending visitor.
“Dylan will be here soon. He will show you how to properly use the new steamer on the curtains. Please listen to him and pay close attention.”
Just as Mrs. Baxter finished talking, the doorbell chimed. Mrs. Baxter opened the door and greeted Dylan.
Immediately upon seeing the hunk of man, one of the maids gasped, while the other maids giggled like school girls. Mrs. Baxter failed to mention that Dylan was attractive – very attractive.
After demonstrating how to use the steamer, Dylan asked the maids if they had any questions. To his surprise, eight hands were raised. Dylan ended up showing each maid – individually – how to use the steamer.
Watching from kitchen, Mrs. Baxter smiled and thought to herself, “I think those maids are a’milking it, just a little.”

Send Dylan over. I’d like to check out his steamer.
Thank you, Lindsey! Glad you paid a visit.
Oh that Dylan, he sure has the life.
If I didn’t have a Rob, I’d want a Dylan.
Mrs. Baxter has 8 maids? I’d like to see her little hovel.
Very clever, as usual!
Mrs. Baxter is very high maintenance, Pegoleg.
Thank you for the compliment.
Lenore now you please write something based on fantasy. I am sure you can write something wonderful in that genre. You are doing a great job with this challenge.
I hope your next item will be ‘Ladies Dancing’, Best of luck for that.
Oh Arindam, I’m not big into fantasy. I appreciate your encouragement, though. Who knows. I guess I should never say never.
Oh – hey…
did you ever see that episode of Beverly Hills 90210 (yeah, the OLD one)
where Brenda gets all mad at Dylan because he is spending more time with the steamer than he is with her?! No?!
Hahahahahaha! SIG, you got me. Seriously. Though Dylan was not ‘built’ like most ‘hot’ guys are portrayed, he was the guy I had in mind. I had such a crush on Dylan. You made me blush by calling me out.
Oh, those saucy maids! Dylan has his hands full.
He did – and I don’t think he was complaining.
The third story today (including mine) that used a-milking in that way. And no one was killed!
Thanks, Random. Too bad your maidens didn’t fair as well. (smile)
Yeah, too bad. 😀
As I am Mrs Baxter, could you please send Dylan this way? Oh and I could do with just one or two of the maids around here. Promise to keep them away from Dylan.
Patti, I sent an email to Judith. She really was the inspiration behind Mrs. Baxter. I have Dylan scheduled to head to her place early next week.
Imagine being the inspiration and getting Dylan as a prize. I promise to look after him well girls.
I know he’ll be in good hands, Judith!
I was going to ask if you were hiring any more maids, Judith. Have to see this Dylan fella for myself!
You were looking for a reason to travel to New Zealand, right Patti? 🙂
Come on over Patti. I can always do with an extra maid. And I might just introduce you to Dylan.
Now that’s the kind of work that defines “working it.” 🙂
I was about to ask if Judith Baxter (my sister) had seen your post, then I saw your comment that she’s the inspiration. Oh yes!! that’s our girl.
God bless, Christine
Welcome, Christne. I’m honored to have Judith’s sister stop by for a visit. Glad you noticed the name. I’ve never met your sister, but something told me she was a woman of good taste. (smile) Blessing to you, too. ~ Lenore
Hi Big Sister. Glad you have met my blogging buddy Lenore Diane. Welcome to our blogging club.
