My Sweet Gussie came ovew to my house this weekend fwom Viwgeena
we decided to catch the subway up to Moma(it's only five stops fwom my house) 
and see the new Gewman Expwessionist Exhibit

Gussie wan fastew than I did and I almost missed the twain,but held the doow like a gentledog fow me

Moma is wight acwoss the stweet fwom the subway stop so it's easy peasy to get thewe
It was cold and blustewy day wif hints of wain, so it's pawfect fow indoow activities

inside, we wewe astounded to see some vewy familiaw images in the paintings..I guess ouw ancestows wewe models

we sat in the sculptoow gawden and talked about what we had seen.. but could only stay a showt time cause of the thweatening wain

as we headed home it came pouwing down.  Luckily, I had my owange umbwella wif me to shield us

latew we got home and took off all ouw soggy clotheses and had a snack in fwont of the fiwe..
Gussie is staying all weekend, and it looks like we'll be mostly in fwont of the fiwe
Spwing is still not hewe even though it's Apwil

hope all of you have a gweat weekend too
smoochie kisses

That looks very romantic and cozy to me, Asta! I hope you and Gus have a great weekend together!


Gus said...

Well, it is good to know where my wandering brother is...I guess my plans to go to whippet nationals in Lexington are history.

Tell him to take it easy on the gussiemobile and muzzer's plastic card...pawticularly the black one he skipped out with.

Looks like you and Gus are going to have a very romantic weekend. We loved the painting of your ancestors.

Mommy was petting Artemisia. The camera did something weird, we have no clue how and gave her tan spots like Scylla.

Miss Asta, I had no idea that the German Expressionists incorporated doggies into their work. I guess I need to go back and read my art history books!

Your pal, Pip

What a lovely start to the weekend! It is always nice when in NYC to start things off with something cultural (so so momma says). Then some fabulous dining and time together with friends...good friends. Sounds perfect no matter what the season or the weather. Bask in the warm sunshiney glow of dear ones.

It looks like you had a great time together. Mom says the garden at MOMA brings back memories of visiting there with her Mom and Dad.

Darn Asta. You're still in Winter and we've skipped Spring in Arizona and gone straight to Summer! It was 99degress here today!! You and Gussie were so lucky to get to go to MOMA. Our mommy used to love to visit. The folks left us tonight and went to a Hero's Banquet at the Cardinal Stadium in Glendale. Kenneled up. Canyou imagine?

Ah, but Asta, if there is Spring in your heart and Spring in your steps, than SPRING is truly here, no matter what. (Hint: ask for a smooch for every raindrop!)
Happy Days, Asta!

Bocci said...

Oh, how we enjoy your adventures, Asta! This was a most delightful post! Glad you were able to see "familar figures" in those paintings at MOMA:-)

And we especially loved your cozy snack-Proscecco we presume? We (O.K. Parental Unit and her friends) can't get enough-and what a glorious spread to go with it-we're happy to join you anytime-hehehe

P.S. We'd love it if you'd enter our weekly "Timmy disaster" contest-we know you could come up with something hilarious!

Bobby said...

Asta how great for you to have Gus there with you, what a nice day I hope the rain did not spoil it for you both. What a gentledog he is to hold the door for you.
We like the picture, you must take after your ancesters.
Then to finish you day relaxing by the fire with a nice meal, just fab.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

PRIVACY???? I'm flyin' up on the Broom with the Boyz...keep the damper open on the fireplace...we're comin' in that way....maybe it'll be better than the dryer vent.

Is any of that food left??? Oh my, it all looks delicious....could you have my Coke Zero chilled please????)

Oh, Stan's feet stink and Scruffy's breath...well...I hope it doesn't kill the womance....

(Lacie's voice ends in a shriek to be heard over the Broom motor...)



Lacie, your BFF

We think OurGirl is gonna be VeryJelly when she sees this post. She's gonna remember going to MOMA with Daddi. What a VerySpecialDay that was. Just like your day with Gussie.

Now ... we'll leave you with some privacy.

But not before mentioning ... Winston took us ... or maybe we took Winston on an adventure this weekend. He says to say "Thank you very much for the suggestion."

Much love, ASTA sissie
Your bruvver Jake and sissie Fergi
