See how unhappy I am?..miffed weally, to tell the twoof. Guess what my pawents did wifout me?

They went to this place, (now I know how Joe and Tannew feel when theiw pawents go to the ball game)..(The Wowld Twade Centew used to be wight behind it, whewe the cwane is now)

This is the wintew Gawden at the Wowld Financial Centew in lowew Manhattan. It was vewy badly damaged on 9/11, but it has been westowed. Thewe awe lots of shops and this big centwal space whewe sometimes they have concewts...(Mommi and Daddi went to dance thewe on Valentine's day the yeaw it was sploded)

Anyway, one of theiw favowite pawfowmews gave a FWEE concewt the othew day
Mommi hopped on the subway and wan down thewe..it stawted at 1:00

Diana Krall!!!!!!!she is supew cool, I've heawd hew on ouw Ipoddy at home (plus she's mawwied to Elvis Costello- how cool is that?..we saw them going home one night not faw fwom us)

Auntie Kawen and Daddi snuck out of theiw offices at lunch times and met Mommi thewe(those awe auntie Kawen and Mommi's shoes- guess which is which?)

thewe wewe chaiws and benches , but They sat on the mawble steps that go awound

Miss Kwall had hew quawtet wif hew, and also a big band..(she plays a mean piano- much bettew than me)

Mommi took just some little bits of some songs to let you get an idea.(pleez fowgive the jiggly pictoowe and the sound quality).it was supew cool they said

aftewwawds they went out the othew side and looked at the Watew fow a while

and ate gelato WIFOUT ME!!!!!!!

but I love them so much, we made up. Mommi splained she would have taken me if she could, and we'we getting some Gealto just fow us soon.

That's so cool your Mom went to a FREE concert! We don't get all those cool concerts here...everything is seriously overpriced, especially concert tickets *pouts* But it's great to see that your parents had a great time, and they promised you Gelato too, so that is something! *grins*

Congrats on your awards too...you sure deserve them, sweet Asta! *grins* Hope you have a great weekend!


i said...

The concert sounds great! Hope your mommy would bring you next time, Asta. Congrats on your awards! Certainly well deserved!

Have a pawsome weekend now!

Martha said...

Hi Asta
That concert sounded like great fun - pity you didnt get to go along although perhaps you were better at home keeping an eye on your blog and collecting your Awards!
We thought your mum had on the black shoes/boots!
Congratulations on your Awards and thank you for passing on that lovely stylish lady Award to us!!
Well we think it is just fabulous and goes so well with our elegant, classy image that you created for us!
We are glad your mom is going to make it up to you today and we hope you enjoy your gelato.
Have the best weekend.
love and kisses
Martha & Bailey xx

Moco said...

A free concert and gelato. What is up with you being left at home? Oh, well someone must guard the old homestead and I guess that was you today.

Dughallmor Beagles said...

Oh Asta! Well done and congrats on all your lovely awards, you deserve them :D and thank you for thinking of us when you pass them on.
We think that the black shoes look like office shoes and that the lighter ones are your Mommy's feets, they look like artist shoes :o)
We hope you get your ice-cream soon!
Slobbers xx

Persephone and Buster said...

Hey Asta!!! Arug I can't believe they left you! Oh, we think your mom's feet are on the left in the black shoes.

Gus said...

Asta: Thank you for sharing the award, and thanks to your Mommi for sharing the concert. Looks like a great venue and I hope they had lots of fun. Hmmmm...are the yellow shoes Mommi's? If Aunt Karen was at her office, I think her shoes might be dressier than Mommi's?


pee ess...and my muzzer has a pair of mary janes kinda like that, only, of course...hers are black!


Clover said...

Hi Asta!
Congrats on your awards! I am sorry your parents went without you, but they took some pawesome pictures!
Love Clover xo
P.S. My blog is gone now, but I will be back soon, and I will let you know where to find me.

Mack said...

What a cool concert. Mom said she did not know that lady was married to Elvis Costello, whatever that means. Anyhoo I am glad you made up with Mommi (and don't let her forget about the gelato!)

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Hello sweet Asta,
First off, thanks for inviting us to Myrna's wedding. May all 3 of us attend Myrna's wedding? We'll e-mail our cutout pictures soon.
Ah, I saw your daddy in the concert, he looks very kind! I love music, my dad plays guitar and I can dance too when I beg for food.
Your mom wears black coat so...black shoes belongs to her, right?
Congrats on the Awards, you well deserve it. And please come to my blog to pick up your 2 Rose and Friendship Awards and to see me proposing to my dream girl.
Love ya lot

Daisy said...

What a beautiful place! I am so glad that it has been restored. How fun to listen to music surrounded by sunshine and palm trees!

Rosie said...

Hi Asta,
Thank you so much for the award. I know exactly how you feel about being left behind. My family took out the suitcases last night. I think they are plotting something!!
Loves from pugs,
Rosie Marie

Molly the Airedale said...

We can't believe that you didn't get to go to that fabulous concert too, Asta, and they are smiling while they're eating their gelato!
We think your mommi's shoes are the black ones!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

the many Bs said...

hi Asta, that is so sad that your mommi went to this concert without you and you had to stay home all alone. it's dog abuse. we know. our mom abuses us this way sometimes too. we're glad you are going to get some gelato to make up for it though. you will probably be okay now.


Koobuss said...

Kousin Asta,

That concert that your Mommi and Daddi went to sounds like a lot of fun. And at such a nice place. Life in the big city must be so interesting. There is always something going on.

Thank You for the lovely award. It was nice of you to think of me.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

I don't think I would have forgiven them that easily

William Tell said...

Sophie Brador said...

See Asta! That's why mommy needs to move to New York. So she can go to free concerts any time she feels like it. And hang out with you.

Hi Asta! What a neat place your parents went to for that concert! It's definitely not fair that you didn't get to go, but I'm glad you made up. Those gelatos look yummy!

See ya!

Eric said...

The winter garden looks beautiful. Great that it's been restored. And hooray for the free concerts! Way to go Daddie and Auntie Karen sneaking out of work for a concert and then having an Ice Cream too. Hope the work Police don't find out. Cool concert too. Maybe you could send little Asta next time?

Thanks for the award sweet Asta and well doe on yours.

Wiry lovies and kissies. Eric xx

Unknown said...

Not fair! Your right. What a beautiful place and fun time. And the gelato... yum yum. I bet mom will make it up to you. She probably thought you were still tired from that big weekend.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
Sure your Mom and Dad had an awesome time there at the concert! And they chose the best way to finish a lovely day... with gelato!!
Congratulations on your awards! You deserve them!

Joe Stains said...

Thanks for the award!! That is so so cool that your Mommi can just pop on over and meet your Aunti and Daddi for a concert! Mom likes that Elvis Costello dude, so she will totally check out his wife on that itunes thing. Thanks for introducing us to her!!

The Cat Realm said...

That was not nice! To go without you - but we are sure they didn't have a choice..... So it's probably o.k. to forgive your Mom.
And congratulations on all your so well deserved awards!

Agatha and Archie said...

We are catching up......DIANA KRALL! PL2's FAVORITE!!!!!! imagine the cheek not taking you....but we are glad you made up after..Love A+A(we are singing now)

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

D.Krall and ice cream and they left you out?! Wow, what did you do to deserve that? hmmmm. Our folks don't always take us with them either. Daddy is in Houston, Texas now and he left us to fend with Mommy, so we know how you felt. Lucky for us Mommy is a soft touch. he he. We got her pizza crust at lunch. yum.
Smooches,BabyRocketDog & Hootie
