Getting Closew to Gussie

I was soo excited that I couldn't  stand still fow Mommi to take my pictoowe
My Dawling Gussie's Muzzew and Dad(aka the pwofessow)  as well as Flat Gussie and Flat Teka awe coming to visit me
(I was vewy disappointed that I didn't get to have the wound vewsions , but I'm hoping that next time they'll come)

I helped Mommi make a typical summew Hungawian meal.....it stawts wif a cold chewwy soop...mmmmmmmm, wefweshing

ummmm, Mommi should I test that?

awe you suwe you don't need help??????

I hope they like this..it's a little spicy, but I heawd that they like cajun food (specially the pwofessow) and this hungawian stuff is sowt of close in heat at least

I have to tell you all that Muzzew is the most genewoos hooman I have evew sat next to at dinnew..the yummie bites wewe coming constantly my way..and wif a sweet smile and a lovely scwitchie too
I gave Flat Gussie lots of smoochie kisses hoping that he would take them back to my weal Gussiekins

Flat Teka immediately came and guzzled a glass of pwosecco   (I'm hoping Muzzew has a photogwaph of that, cause I looked high and low, but couldn't find it)

Then muzzew gave me  amost faboolous pwessie..it looks like a Lei, but is ackshooly a squeecky/tug/thwow toy and it's mostly OWANGE!!!!!! (the blue bits awe the squeeckies)
Thank you so much Gussie and Teka..I LOOOOVE it!!!!!!

we all decided to go fow a walk along the wivew..it wained, and then the sun came out, then the wind, then wain again, but we had a gweat time anyway

Daddi, me ,Muzzew, and the pwofessow(Gussie'nTeka's Dad)

see, thewe was momentawily no wain, so Mommi quick took a photo

all too soon, the fiwst day was ovew

 The next day Muzzew and Mommi walked and walked and talked and talked and had a wondewful time.....this is a pictoowe in Washington Pawk..I'm suwpwised theiw feets didn't fall off by the time they got back to ouw apawtment

 they put theiw feet up fow a little while and then the Hoomans went out  fow a vewy special dinnew to have Vietnamese foods at a place called Indochine 
(it was Muzzew and Pwofessow's aminevewsawawy).

I stayed home wif Flat Gussie and Flat Teka..(we owdewed pizza...I just love that delivewy is so easy in NewYAwk...it's a good thing, because they didn't bwing anything home to shawe fwom the westauwant)

They loved the food and had a gweat time

Thank you fow visiting me ..We all loved having you hewe  and spending a little time togethew

(I hope Muzzew doesn't tell Gussie how awful I looked..my head was mostly tilted and my eaws all gweasy looking fwom medicin fow yet anothew eaw infection..I am getting vewy tiwed of having these)

I will tweasoowe my pwessie and dweam of next time when maybe Gussiekins will be hewe in his wound  and cuwly self

smoochie kisses

Mommi's menu made MY momma yearn for her grandmother's cooking! It was fabulous to see such pleasurable memories being made and friendships being burnished to a glistening shine. And dear friend, you would NEVER look awful! Even with an earache and medicine head, your joie de vie makes you radiate like the warm sun!

Teddy Westlife said...

Asta you look gorgeous, even with an ear infection! Souds like you have had a great time.

WFT Nobby said...

Hi Asta
What a lovely time you all had, and Gail and I are still salivating over that spicy sausage and rice dish. And that truly is a fabulous and totally fitting present from Gussie and family. You look so beautiful with it round your neck, I never noticed anything amiss with you ears, but I am sorry if they have been hurting (Gail tells me that Hamish was forever getting ear infections, so she understands exactly about the greasy problem.) I hope they are feeling better by now.
Toodle pip!
Bertie (who is still waiting for his morning trip to the park, 'cos it is raining so hard here that even Gail doesn't seem to want to go out.)

Molly the Airedale said...

Cherry soup? yummmmmmm
What a fun time you had with flat Gussie and flat Teka and Muzzer and Gussie's dad, Asta. Your lei looks lovely on you!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Wow, you were so lucky, Asta, to get to meet Muzzer and Professor and help them celebrate their anniversary. We agree that round Gussie and Teka would have been better than the flat versions, but even that was so special. Mom thinks that soup looks delish (and very pretty too).

We sure hope your ear gets better soon, but we still think you look very beautiful.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Gus said...

Wow...next time I gotta smuggle my round self into the luggage or something. The way muzzer packs, they will never know.

We are looking for the camera! Secure in the knowledge that it will show up somewhere, but not sure where.

We are so glad you are feeling better, and I am glad that Muzzer followed instructions and shared her dinner with you.


Gus said...

psssst....you could never be anything but beautiful to me.


tula monstah said...

Thanks for sharing your wonderful time with us, Asta! We love New Yawk, and love seeing the delicious and very special food your mom prepares.

P.S. I get those ear infections, too:-)

PP SS: Your package is going out today and should arrive sometime next week. PU took the cheap route for mailing and chose Pony Express. Who knew we still had that?

Barbara said...

I don't know what that rice dish was, but I think I could eat many bowls of it.

You sure looked like you had a great time with Flat Gussie! And I love your new toy!

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

Asta...that dinner looked to die for...oh it looked so yummy and are there anymore leftovers and I could just pop up there on my Broom and then we could maybe go to a market and buy some more fresh ingredients for smoothies...

That Muzzer looks like she's about 29 years old? She must of had the girls at like 12 or something...

Congrats to her and Dogdad on their anniversary!!

Kisses, Miss Lacie Cakes
