Pooches, the SUNSHINE is out in force today! It’s a bit on the chilly side but with the all-to-rare SUNSHINE so far in 2013, the cool temperature was ignored for our excursion.
My manservant neglected to go for his walk/run this morning citing a heavy workload in our library. He did stop that work in time to make it to his cardio/weight class. Upon his return, he headed straight back to our library and continued paper shuffling and keyboard activity. Starlight and I kept looking at the clock, waiting for his activity to move to the kitchen to make us some lunch for our excursion. I finally asked him when we were going and what we were going to eat. He looked at the clock in surprise and picked up the telly to place a call, mumbled something into the receiver, got up and retrieved Starlight from the kitchen and off we went.
It wasn’t long before Starlight and I realized we were headed to my Mardi Gras resturant! “To go” boxes in hand, we headed to my Saturday park, a spot we have woefully neglected during this frequent inclement weather. When we arrived at the park, Starlight and I scurried around while my manservant prepared the table. The strong wind precluded the use of our tablecloth, so Starlight and I were limited to the bench instead of the tabletop. When my manservant opened the boxes we saw the treasure: GUMBO AND CRAB LEGS! Starlight wanted to know if it was Mardi Gras again. I quickly took her aside and sternly reminded her that it was Lent and she’d better put on a long face and not mention Mardi Gras or my manservant might change his mind and take us back home. She spent the rest of our excursion trying to make a long face…mostly by the use of her tongue!
The meal, as the weather, was delightful (I vote for crab claws every day). Afterwards, Starlight and I galloped about the park, barked at several suspicious geese, and generally had a good time playing with sticks and gumballs. It was a grand time!
We’re home now and my manservant is working on a fence outside. I think it is naptime.
