Pet People Party Planning!
Can you believe it's only a little over a week before Daisy Duke and Adrienne arrive in town for our gathering!!
Daisy is coming Wednesday and Adrienne Thursday night. As you may know, Adrienne will be staying at the Riverview Inn, where Daisy and I also will be staying Friday night for our night on the town.
So, we need to decide on an agenda! We will come to town in the afternoon Friday so we can show Adrienne around a bit. Then, if I am remembering this correctly, we will all meet for dinner somewhere. I still like the thought of schnitzel at the VFW, but we don't' have to go there. I like the cheap drinks there and the fact there are no squalling kids! Then Pam graciously invited us to her house for games and karaoke (I don't know how to spell that word and ain't looking it up). Skeeter must remember to bring the games she had last time. We had a hoot playing those games.
Since Pam lives in the Sango area, we can instead meet at the Mexican place by Wal-Mart first, then go to her house. What do you think? Of course, I will leave my car at the Riverview and will need someone to pick us up and bring us back after game time. I'm thinking the Dragon might be willing to do this for us, as long as Daisy sits in the front with him! Also, I thought those of us still awake can go to a club or two downtown before we go back to the hotel to crash.
As far as Saturday. I know Stacey has her Veterans Parade, but someone has to show Adrienne around. She said she wanted to go to Nashville. I don't hardly ever go to Nashville, so I wouldn't be a good tour guide there. Personally, I think there's enough to see and do around here, but you all can do what you like!
While Daisy is here I plan on having her help me introduce Tweety to Tarzan and Catfish inside of the fence. Yes, The Boss has weakened a bit. I am worried about this, as Tarzan is always meowing at her when he sees her. However, his meows have softened as he sees her more regularly. I sit with Tweety on the other side of the fence and pet her, then let Tarzan sniff my hand. Catfish is fine with her, but Tarzan has this stare going on. More on that later. My worries are this: Catfish and Tarzan are so close, I worry what a third wheel will do to that dynamic. Also, neither of them scratches on anything inside other than their carpeted cat tree. What if Tweety shreds everything? And we are not there as much to supervise, as they live in the apartment. While Daisy is here we can both stay over there to keep an eye out.
So, let's discuss plans for Nov. 9 and 10! And any Pet People readers who don't post who want to join us at whatever restaurant we start out at, you are more than welcome! The more the merrier.
Pictures above are of Brett and Jeremy's Hines and Lucy. I took the photos before the Humane Society dance. Hines is really coming along. He barked just a bit when I first arrived, but quieted down quickly. All their dogs love the new fenced-in yard!
