Good morning AZ time, friends. Had to get a bit of work out of the way, so am sipping my high-octane double cappuccino. Pucci and I are delighted you're enjoying this venue. Charles - always a delight to see you. I hope you enjoyed your early Earl Grey tea and now that you're back from church, can sit back, read the paper (between furbaby scritches) and enjoy more leisurely cups of Earl Grey. Pucci's tail began wagging with the mention of Cousin Horhei possibly stopping by. Yonnie - here's your ice water. Relax and enjoy - and please let Pucci or me know if/when you're ready for Grey Goose. Linda & Jim - Pucci ran to greet Hunter, escort him to Charles and give him his bowl of water and treats. They're now romping on the beach. Here are Mimosas for the two of you. Relax and enjoy - plenty more available if/when you might want a refill. Corky - gee...I guess you like this place, eh? Good. Enjoy your triple shot cappuccino with Bailey's on the side. Will Den be joining us? Jeanie - thanks for joining us. Just let me know if you'd care for a refreshment. Donna - so happy you like today's choice of spots. Bringing out the Bloody Mary's - I keep the Tabasco on the side so they can be spiced to taste (I'm one of those wimps who doesn't like it spicy. :whistle: ) Relax and enjoy. My dear Paeasana and Mark - it's GREAT to see you relax. Sit back - Pucci's bringing you double cappuccinos to start off with. And I'm about ready for a refill on mine. Connie - it's always a pleasure to have you join us. We've brought you a tall glass of iced tea with a slice of lemon. Please let us know when you're ready for a refill. Enjoy! Tobyn - Pucci ran to greet Timber...and yes, we've noted that Timber has really mellowed out nicely. Pucci brought him to Charles for some scritches, gave him his bowl of water, and thanks Timber for his own special snack and for that Alaskan Thunderstruck catnip. We hope some of our kitty regulars will join us today. And here are cuppas for you and Bread. Sit back, relax and enjoy. How are the "kids" and Rylee? Seamom - the day is young. We'll see how frisky Erik is today (but I can mellow him out with his special Sunday drink! ) Take your floating deck chair while Pucci and I get you your Mimosa. Enjoy! Audrey - please tell Blue that all his Open House buddies are waiting for him in sunshine! Here is your cup of green tea (more under the cozy). Please enjoy. Marie - I'm so happy you like our locale today. Pucci ran to greet ZsaZsa, escort her to Charles and then gave her a bowl of fresh water and treats. They're off playing on the beach. Go choose your floating lounger while I get you your pineapple juice and Malibu rum. Enjoy. Erik - Pucci is delighted to see Molle - usual routine, brought him to Charles for scritches, then gave him his bowl of water and treats. Molle, too, is on the beach romping with the other furbabies. Well, there are two ladies on floating loungers keeping a close eye out for you today :whistle:, so I shall let you decide if you prefer to swim, float or sit today. But while you make up your mind, Pucci and I have brought you your two Silja Specials. Enjoy. Am I correct in observing that the facial hair has disappeared? Denise - Pucci is so happy to see Georgie and Louie. It has been a long time. He escorted them to Charles, gave them their bowls of water and treats...and they, too, have joined the other furbabies on the beach. Here is your lemonade - please enjoy. msbuster - welcome to our weekend Open House. So glad you could join us. Enjoy your swim, and we'll have a Mimosa ready for you afterwards. Glo - Pucci ran to Cousin Kieffer. Hmmm...I see Kieffer is mooching scritches from everyone, not only Charles! Pucci has his bowl of water and treats ready before they join the furbabies on the beach. Good point about no safety issues with our e-sun. Enjoy getting that tan! Here's your Bloody Mary, and I'll let you add Tabasco to taste. Claire - it's a delight to see you here. We missed Jim at the "late bar" last night! Cream cheese pound cake? OH, YUM!!!!! And thank you in advance. Two tall iced teas coming right up. Relax and enjoy!
