I likes your smileboxes!!!! I paw tickle you lawly like the moosic. This was was great because of the gelato! And of course, the other foods. With you gone, I am focusing on my second most favorite thing in the world. FOOD! I could totally clean plates at the place you had lunch with your Unkle Mikki.

WE liked the smile box. That is a neat little gadget. Thanks so much for coming by and wishing our old lady Mom a Happy Birthday. Take care.

Jake of Florida said...

We loved seeing all the interesting photos -- you and your mommi and daddi look happy. It's spring and there's so much to do, it seems.

Funny though, when we opened the Smilebox and a loud voice sang "Gelato al limon..." we started to bark and bark as though he was right here with us.

And so of course are you all!!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harru

My assistant's mouth was just watering over that yummy chocolate coffee drink. I will take the gelato and she can have the coffee.

We both love lilacs! And the musicians look wonderful as does that neat apartment.

Your pal, Pip

What a wonderful and exciting week. I love your Easter blog header

Sounds like you had a wonderful Easter. Dad knows a little Magyar. He knows how to ask "Where is the beer" and "Where is the bathroom." That should take care of all the important things.

Skye, Anne (Dog Angel Snowball's Mom) and the Collies get together in the DWB 9 AM East Coast time on Sundays. You are welcome to join us.

Happy Easter!
I loved your Smilebox!
Your place is beautiful!
Kisses and hugs

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

Hmm...YOU HAVE LILACS ALREADY??? HOW? We've had waaaaaaay more spring...like summer and no lilacs yet and now it's supposed to snow tonight...sheesch...

Oh that food for the "light lunch" looked amazing!!! We didn't know your Uncle was there!!! And honestly, Asta, do you have JELLY OTTO every day????

It's funny...of all those bootiful pix, Mumsie's favorite one was the shadow of the tree on the building...not that she's artsy or anything.

I have a new invention to make some $$. Yep...a PORTABLE ES CA LATER for all those stoopid steps. I know George likes them, but frankly I'm getting tired of every time we go out for a Smoothie that we have to go up and down the stoopid things like yo yos....I know I have strong bum muscles but it does get tiresome.

Need to go and shed some more on the sofa...when we had our baths today the three of us had massives amounts of fur stuck in the drain...but the strippin' knives will be out tomorrow...

Grooooossss biscuits...

We think your Smile Box's are heavenly, Ms. Asta-we LOVE just sitting back for a relaxing few minutes and being transported to gorgeous Budapest!

P.S. Love your groovy new wallpaper!

Martha said...

Hi Asta, sorry your mom was feeling a little homesick. Your pictures are so beautiful and you all look so happy.
Still there must be times when you think of NY.
We so enjoy seeing the pictures of Budapest, George would be very happy indeed there.
What was Mango doing over there?
Your mom was looking very glam especially in her sunglasses, like a film star.
So glad you are getting your share of gelato, we can see how much you enjoy it.
The jazz venue looked amazing, bet that was a lot of fun.
Happy Easter to you all from us bassets over here in Scotland.

Cowspotdog said...

What a wonderful adventure you had and all those steps...but the gelato made up for them - gave you back some energy. And what was Mango doing there, that dude sure does get around. How lucky is your Mom to be able to sniff lilacs...I bet she wanted to take some home
