Yowza...that's a terrific oasis!! I'll bet knowing you, you'll have fireworks later to light up our party. Champagne fountain is flowing...I'm off to fill up and have some of that chocolate fountain nearby too!
Oh my goodness Mary Ann! Once again you have chosen a FANTABULOUS looking location. We are a bit late in arriving, but are ready for some social interaction and a nice cool soft drink. How about a Diet Pepsi? Timber is lounging around waiting to be waited on. He seems to be a tad lazy this morning . . . . .
Well...I must 'fess up. Mommy just got me out of bed! But first thing, I want to wish "Uncle Charles" a very Happy Birthday! WOOF!
Now, it's great to see so many furbabies...and we have new kitties today. MEOW - welcome.
I wag my tail in greetings to
Horhei (of course)
Kiefer (hope you get a new little sister soon)
Munster and Eskabar (welcome!)
Molle (I have your pancake cut into 4 pieces today - want some now?)
Ginny and Tanner
Hope I included everyone - Mommy got me out of bed so I'm still a bit sleeeeeeeeeeeeepy.
Have fun - we have lots of romping areas, and a lot of laps to curl up on!
Seamom - yes, we'll have fireworks later on. Several important celebrations to mark. In the meantime, the champagne fountain is the one center/lower screen and the chocolate fountain is in the club house. Enjoy!
HAPPYANNIVERSARY, Tobyn and Barbara. I'm so happy you could join us today. Pucci ran to greet Timber (another sleepy one?) and I have diet Pepsi's for the two of you. Please sit back, relax and enjoy the company of your fellow @ddicts.
Pucci has now made the rounds to be sure all the furbabies have their bowls of water and appropriate treats. Molle wanted pancakes, and we have more if any other furbabies are allowed to have some. Remember - no calories and nothing harmful at Open House!
Erik - I guess Molle can no longer be angry now that he has had his 4 pieces of pancake. Here are your two Silja Specials - and there are more should your legs need extra strength! :boogie: The "no calories" cake with strawberries is almost gone. Would it be convenient to bring another, please?
Yonnie - two double Grey Goose on the Rocks are being served. Enjoy!
Thank you, Mary Ann! I think I need two more Silja Specials as it has been a busy day here today... :whistle:
Of course - here are some more cakes, enjoy!
I also brought some leftover strawberries (there was no room on the cakes for more strawberries).
Whipped cream could be nice to the strawberries. Maybe there is some around here?
Erik - here are two more Silja Specials...and there are more, if needed.
Thank you for bringing the extra cake and the strawberries. I think I shall steal a couple of strawberries before showing them to others! Not what a hostess should do, though, eh? Mea culpa. Of course we have whipped cream (freshly made, of course) for those who wish some.
Always a joy to see you here, Joanne and Mark. I've opened a bottle of Martini & Rossi Asti Spumante and I'll join the two of you in raising our flutes of Asti to Charles, Tobyn and Barbara. I'm certain DD Julia was happy to have a meal prepared by her Mama. Pucci would like to know if Mariah got a little swipe of turkey. Happy to see you here, dear Paesana and Mark. BTW, do you have any suggestions on how to stop dill pickles from disappearing at lightning speed?:scratch:
It has become Monday here now, so I think it's time to get some sleep.
It will be an early morning tomorrow as I have to take the car to the mandatory vehicle inspection before I go to work.
Thank you for this weekend! :thankyou:
To keep dill pickles from disappearing at lightning speed, put them at the back of the refrigerator on the second rack. That way, nobody will be able to find them without a bit of effort. Bandit and Cocoa have headed for the water bowls and scritches, and Bird Joey just landed on your shoulder. He's ready for scritches and pat pats. In honor of Charles' birthday, Leon and I would like to have a flute of Asti, Martini and Rossi, of course as it's the best! Mary Ann, I brought another for you, and we'll have Chocolate Bananas a bit later.
Yonnie - swipe a few strawberries before you sign off for the night! :sunny:
Erik - thank you and Molle for having joined us today. Good luck with your vehicle inspection in the morning. How often must that be done?
Jacquie - the only trouble with those dill pickles, sent as a home made gift without garlic, is that I'm the thief! Pucci met up with Bandit and Cocoa for their bowls of water and treats, and they're making the rounds mooching scritches. Bird Joey (name noted) is sitting like a little gentleman on my shoulder, eyeing my pocket but allowing me to hand him his cashew nuts and corn chips. Of course, that also allows me to give him his pat-pats on his head and scritches behind the ears. Horhei told me privately that his Grandpa and family went out to dinner at an Italian restaurant, so I think the Martini & Rossi Asti will make the perfect toasts for the "birthday boy". We can always have Chocolate Bananas for "dessert". :cheer:
What a beautiful place to spend the evening. I would love to spend time relaxing in such a tranquil place. A glass of champagne is in order today in celebration of the birthday / anniversary of fellow addicts. Cheers to all of you!!!!
It has been a difficult day, so this is the perfect place to relax for a while. Mary Ann and Pucci, once again you have selected a stunning place. Charles may I add my wishes to the others for a Happy Birthday. I hope that this has been a special day for you. I have all three furbabies, and they are most anxious to see their friends. May I please have a glass of wine while I put my feet up and say hello to everyone.
