Gus we aren't sure why folks like nascar, when Tanner and I run in circles real fast making lots of noise Mom says SHUT UP, she doesn't slap ads on our bums!

Scruffy & Lacie said...

Gussie, I know you worked really hard on all of those answers...but Billie Jean King??? Aren't we too young to remember her??

Hey, I have a feeling you know what this fix it surgery fixes. No one will tell me. I won't have to worry anymore about what????????? Give it up, Gus and spill the beans. I've asked Scruffy and he refers me to Mumsie. She says she's busy and we'll talk later. Does it have something to do with Stuffies??? Lacie

Gus said...

Joe: maybe your mom should think about the ads on your bums idea. I think it has some mass appeal. hehehe

Lacie: I'm too young to remember Billie Jean K, but muzzer is ageless! And ask you Mumsie to explain the surgery to you, cause I had to explain it to Teka, and she tried to run away the next day!

Wow Gussie,
You know lots of sports stuff. Mama doesn't know much & Papa likes football. Mama has always liked the Minnesota Vikings, Pittsburg Steelers & Chicago Bears. She doesn't really watch other sports besides football. Of course they try to watch the Iowa Hawkeye basketball games.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Pawsome comments, Gussie!

Our fan-atic preferences go to the St. Louis Cardinals, as you know, but Mom and Dogdad are so depressed about the last five games they made us take off our Cards bandanas.

Here in SFla, we have the Dolphins (pawball) and the Heat (basketball)and we cheer, but without Cards passion!

Dogdad likes some of the older golfers -- he's in Puerto Rico, so we can't ask him which ones.

Mom checks in on all her favorite former Florida Marlins players who now populate other teans: Jeff Conine (we call him Canine), now at the Mets; Mike Lowell and Josh Beckett, now with the Red Sox; Pudge Rodriguez, now with the Tigers --and she is a Pujols/Eckstein/Ankiel/Molina/Edmonds/Rolen/Taguchi/fan.

No one asked about coaches, but she loves Tony La Russa and Jim Leyland.

But we are too depressed to write more.

You're post gave me a sudden flashback. I remember back in third or fourth grade we had Stan Musial's daughter as a substitute teacher one day. That was a loooong time ago.

Wooo! Mini-Soda! Golden Gophers are a pretty awesome mascot, I must say!

And I'm with Joe on the NASCAR stuff.
