Chucky Lives!

So there was mom/dad rolling down the street doing their errands one weekend.  They stop at a stoplight.  Mom looks over and says, “WTP”.  Dad of course is like what?  Mom says, “Give me the camera – Give me the camera – I gotta take a picture of this”.

Okay that kind of statement means Trouble with a capital T.  It can’t end well – I’m just telling you my friends.  I’ve been around mom long enough to know there will be a blog posting coming from those words.

So mom proceeds to click off a couple of pictures to dad’s continuous, “What’s going on?”  Mom told dad he wasn’t going to believe what she just witnessed – it was scarier than she could put into words – it was unfathomably – aliens surely had to have something to do with this – it was that BIG.

So for your visual understand, I blew the picture up.  What did I tell you?  Scary huh?  That is CHUCKY tied to the back of a pick up truck.  You know there’s a good story behind that!

Paw Time with Houdini


OMD!  You are not going to believe what I’m fixing to tell you my friends.  I’m so excited.  Really I am.  See me all stretched out there on my ottoman?  I’m watching television.  Not just any show though.  Mom couldn’t sleep one night – go figure – so she was surfing the channels on the television and came across something amazing.  How amazing you ask?!  Out of this world amazing.  You see there is a channel specifically for us pooches.  It’s called DogTV.  Have you heard of it?  OMD – it’s amazing!  It’s specifically for dogs who are left alone during the day/night so it can help with separation anxieties.  They have different shows – relaxation, stimulation, soothing music to help your dog sleep and all kinds of other videos.  Now you are probably laughing and wondering does it work though?

Mom tried it on me the other night.  I watched.  I mean I really watched.  The color of the videos are more towards dog vision and the music is so comforting.  I actually fell asleep.  It was awesome!  You don’t believe me though, do you?  Okay – I found a short video on You Tube so I can show you.  Check it out – this is relaxation.

What did you think my friends?  Wasn’t it soothing?  I admit it.  It actually put my dad to sleep.  Barks and rolls with puppy laughter.  But it works, right?  Show it to your pooch and see what happens.  Now, I leave you with Jokes with Dad.  Hope you have a great weekend!! ❤

Travels in the South

img_8522

Hello friends – welcome to another edition of Travels in the South.  This week mom/dad went back for what they know.  They went to a local steakhouse that offers an appetizer called “Wild, Wild Shrimp”.  Better yet, mom had a coupon for this appetizer so that makes it even better, right?

These shrimp are lightly battered and friend.  They are served with different kinds of spicy peppers with a blue cheese dip dressing.  If you are like daddy, you pick the shrimp out and leave the peppers – snorts with piggy laughter.  But if you are mom, you jump feet first in and eat your way out.  Of course, this always goes well accompanied by a glass of Chardonnay, which mom had.

Travels in the South

Have you been enjoying our Travels in the South my friends?  Today we continue our travels with Fozziemom and Fozziedad who visited with us all the way from Australia.  Now, the month previous was Fozziedad’s birthday so everyone agreed to celebrate his birthday when he came to the States.

On this date, they all ventured downtown Atlanta to hang out for a bit and then to go to lunch.  Since Fozziedad plays the guitar, mom researched and found a great shop close to the restaurant they would be going to for lunch.  They all went into the store where they got to hear Fozziedad play and were totally amazed and I do believe mom was star struck ❤  Fozziedad is amazing and trust us, he knows his way around a guitar.  Mom/dad said if they lived in Australia they would for sure have to go and hang out when he plays.

After the guitar store visit, they went to eat at one of my mom/dad’s favorite restaurants called Fogo de Chão.  This is an all you can eat type Brazilian Steakhouse.  Now don’t worry.  This place has everything – from the meat eaters to the vegetarians you will be happy here. You first start off with a huge salad bar that has everything that you can imagine.  You can work on that salad first or have it with your meat selections.  As you eat, they bring skewers of different varieties of meat to your table where they then carve it onto your plate.  You choose what you want and how much.  Now I have to tell you a secret.  My mom/dad love this restaurant, especially these little rolls they bring to your tables in baskets.  Mom says they mysterious and magically reappear in the basket every time you ask.  Isn’t that amazing?

Everyone was instructed not to eat breakfast and have to empty bellies for this adventure at the restaurant.  And I must admit, everyone got their fill – even dessert for the birthday boy.  It was an awesome time.  Sometimes when daddy puts me to bed, I ask him to tell me this story about the restaurant.  I can just imagine myself laying up under the table, hooves up in the air like I just don’t care and being hand fed the remarkable steak at this place.  Give me a moment….. okay let’s continue.

Afterwards, the group wanted to go on a further adventure.  You see a couple of years ago, downtown Atlanta installed SkyView Atlanta.  Skyview Atlanta is a Ferris Wheel that is over 20 stories above Centennial Park.  They have individual gondolas that are climate controlled.  Did you hear that?  Climate controlled as in the day everyone visited, it was an air conditioned gondola that they rode in.  Can you believe that?  Ferris Wheels have come a long ways baby.  When you are up in the gondola, mom said you could see all kinds of views of downtown.  It was totally awesome!  And of course no trip is complete without a picture of your memories.

Oh, are you asking where daddy was?  He was guarding the Jeep – snorts with piggy laughter.  Due to dad’s vision, he can’t go up that far so he sat this one out and partied in the Jeep until we got done.   Don’t fear – he had a great time rocking out to Queen.

Did You Know

Oh friends – Let’s talk about palindrome.  Do you know what palindrome means?  It means dates, letters and sequence of phrases that are the sames backwards and forwards.  This week we refer to it as palindrome week.  Why?  Look at the picture below with the dates this week.  They are the same – backwards or forwards.  Now, I tell you this so you can go and impress your friends.  ❤  I did that with mom/dad and they were highly amazed.

Do You Want to See Something that Will Make YOU Smile?

Oh friends.  I hope you had a fantastic weekend.  We did nothing really.  Well okay.  Mom and dad went on a little field trip that I will post about this afternoon but other than that – nada.  But, this morning I saw a video that will absolutely BLOW your mind.  It will make you oohh and aaww.  We have watched it here at the Hotel Thompson repeatedly.

It’s from my good friend Speedy.  You *have* to jump over to his page and watch the video.  He’s on a leash!  And he likes it!  And yeah, Bashful is in the video too but this time, it’s all about Speedy because he is simply AMAZING!  So, check him out here my friends.

AND while you are watching the video of the beautiful countryside – check out the horses in it too.  I want to live there!  I wonder if I can mail myself to Speedy?  A couple of air holes in the box should do it, you think?  Snorts
