I hope you enjoy them and if you haven't seen the show, pleez go and watch it at Sassy's bloggie

As is tradition after a successful CCSI show we are having a cast and crew party! Here are the executives of Little Production, still on location at the Byrd Mansion, also known as Westover, in Virginia, trying to figure out where to have the party.

After a glass of that fabulous New Zealand wine that Momo brought along Ollie decides to climb up on a roof where she has an idea!

All agree that this might be the best idea - food is brought in, the famous house wine from The Cat Realm is added, and someone even put up some decoration. Here is the whole cast on the front lawn of the mansion.

The cast is eager to help with the preparing of the food (we wonder why?):
Fat Eric, Ayla and Luxor take care of the fish, while Miles, LC, Perfect Parker and Angus Mhor are grilling the chicken and beef.
Momo and Opus don't understand that Dr. Tweety and Sassy apparently already have eaten something.
Karl whispers something in Ruis's ear and Ollie has a conversation with Pearl while Titus and Asta try to keep an eye on all and everything to make sure the party doesn't go out of hand.
Not that that has EVER happened before....hehehehehehe

All of a sudden Asta is heard shouting from the garden:

And after everybody races over there, this is what we see. Our bridge animals appeared in the fountain!

We think this is the perfect moment to commemorate all the men and women who died while in military service as it is Memorial Day today.

Then Miles insists on re-enacting his famous corpse scene. Director Ruis is a good sport and goes along while Ollie and Asta try to figure out how to actually shoot the whole thing....

Meanwhile the others are attacking the buffet - Ayla fills the plates with food and Asta serves them around, Perfectly Parker serves herself, Luxor and Opus try to be regal on their respective cat sofas and Ruis and Karl still have something to whisper about.....

And then the entertainment arrives!!! Sassy has arranged for some Elvis impersonators to come and sing, hurray!!!!

Hi, Asta -

We like the cast party pictures - especially the one of you saying come here quick and the memorial picture. This is a good tribute for everyone who paid the ultimate price to keep the U.S. free.

Do you know that I (Hershey) live between Boston and New York? Maybe when you have more time you can visit me.

Love -


Kaci -

We hope you all have a pawsome weekend. Take lots of pictures.
