We didn't know corn cobs could be dangerous, we shall have to keep a close eye on them. The beans grilled some corn yesterday. They seemed to think it tasted pretty good. Now we know to watch them carefully in case the dangerous corn cobs hurt them.

Thank you for inviting us to your party all this food is delicious. It is pouring down rain at our house so we are very happy to get away. And it is always a pleasure to visit with you Asta.

We think your stamp is the prettiest stamp we ever saw.

Ooh la la Asta. We wish we could be with you for Bastille today. Georgie is really good at picking out French wine and I know how to spot good cheese. Many people think standard poodles are from France! Actually our breed originated in Germnay but we like to party whatever the holiday.

Unknown said...

Save some pate for me, Asta, I'm on my way over. Sure is no fun over here. Mommy's lousy at hitting tennis balls with her crutches.

Your pal in exile,

Yes, you definitely should be on the official French stamp. We rushed right over to Putter's when we read your post. We weren't aware corn cobs could be so dangerous.

Wasn't the food at Sassy's mom of the house's party fantastic?

Happy late Bastealy Day!

Sassy Kat said...

Happy Bastealy Day, we are sorry that you had to celebrate it alone but it looks like you had fun. You sure have beautiful photos of the celebration.
I know you miss your mom being home but she is helping Karen and that is a good thing.
We are ready and heading out on the safari on the 18th. Too excited!!!!!! I know a lot of adventures are awaiting us.

Eric said...

Wally Wheelie here. Gilbert my man,and your lovely Myrna, bride to be.

I've cranked my wheels over to apawlogiswe on belhalf or Eric. He's been in the naughty corner all night. He is truly contrite and knows he's been unacceptably rude. I'm sure he will make it up to you. (He has already been looking on all the best antique sites searching for a suitable wedding present for you both)

You know what teenage boys are like. Always getting fanciful ideas into their heads about something and nothing. I've seen a lot of it during my years.Dogs of nowadays need more disicpline don't you think? Wouldn't have got away with it in my day. The paw boy is just frustrated because we don't let him destuff us. He's got worse unfortunately. I can't begin to tell you what he suspects..... as his Mother has said she will hear no more said about it and he certainly won't be blogging any scaremongering stories like that ever again. Quite right too.

Please accept Eric's apologies, he's a sweetie really.

Tootle Pip old bean. Best wishes to you and your girl. Wally Wednesday.

Amber said...

Asta, Happy Bastille Day!!You make a pawsome stamp! Hope Auntie Karen a speedy recovery and able to go home soon~ :)

Deetz said...

Tell Auntie Kawen to get well soon and hope that everything went really well with her surgery. I wonder what her scar looks like? I bet pretty cool.
Hope you have a great weekend and are still celebrating!!!

Jans Funny Farm said...

Asta, We just stopped by to check on you and all your family, including your auntie Karen.
