Happy First Anniversary Aire Ruby!

We noticed on Ruby's blog that it is the first Anniversary of Aire Ruby coming up very soon! She and that plane have logged lots of air time taking dogs to pawties, ferrying nursies to sick doggies, taking us all to events like the stooper bowl and baseball games.
And now, Ruby and her mom are planning a special anniversary trip, with stops all over the place. I am trying to convince her to let the whole gang stop by Mayemphis. After we rest a bit at my new digs (less than fifteen minutes from the airport, where we can make arrangements for Ruby to use the Fed Ex runways) we can pile into the gussimobile and go to visit


Where we will park the gussiemobile Very Carefully

And get in the LOOOONG line of people waiting to be admitted.

I am sure that some of the girl dogs will want to see Elvis' memorial stone, and the jungle room and all kinds of other stuff, including cars and airplanes! Sort of boring to see planes if you are Ruby and doing all that flying, but we know that the accommodations on Aire Ruby are far superior to what Mr. Presley enjoyed.

Then, I thought we would wander on down to Beale Street around seven pm or so, and see the people who are just starting to enjoy their evening! They have live bands on almost every corner, these AWESOME acrobats who do back flips down the street, and lots of other stuff to see and try. Like...deep fried dill pickles, and barbecue, and lots and lots of blues.
There is almost always a crowd on the street, and there are lots of souvenir shops and places you can buy funny hats and T-shirts, and food to go or food to eat in, and ice cream and.....no kibble!
The only problem is that they let all kinds of people come down to Beale Street. Look at this couple in the foreground. Hardened criminals for sure! If we see them while we are there, we will have to run in the opposite direction! Man they are scary.

Anyway, I know that Miss Snickers will be here, I am hoping that she just hangs around after my recovery period so we can have some quality time together. And I figure if we have a plug for the blender, the nursies will either hang in there or come right back. And Teka is on the phone now calling the whippets to see if Swede William and the gang want to meet us here, or if they want Aire Ruby to stop and pick them up.

Looking forward to seeing all of you! Everybody bring gold cards so we can buy a lot of tacky souvenirs.

Just wonderin', have you seen Elvis yet?

I've given you an award, Gus, for having such an entertaining and informative blog. We love checking it out! See my blog for details.

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Gussie,
We're there for sure! And yes, I plan on staying as long as you need me there to help you recover. Hehehehe, you're right, if there is a blender, the other nursies will be back. I can help you stock up on the groceries. I should arrive Monday evening. So watch for my pink 4 wheeler on the road.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Miss Snickers & Butchy

Look at that riff-raff roaming in Memphis!

How does Aire Ruby afford the gas, I wonder? Perhaps she's found a way to convert cats into energy?

the 4 Bs said...

hi Gus, your town doesn't look like a dog park at all. it looks more like a human kind of place. that's okay, as long as we can run and play somewhere.

we heard you were having an operation on your rodney. we know Snickers will take excellent care of you. she is a professional nurse, you know, and has a pink hat to prove it. we just wanted to say good luck and all that. we're pawing for you and sending you the power of the Bs for a speedy recovery.


Stanley said...

Aw, Gussie!

Have you said all of your good-byes to Rodney? Is he prepared for the next step of his journey? We here in GooberStan have been thinking of you both, and hoping that your last weekend together was a BLAST!

I'm totally up for the post surgery party! Stella suggested we do a pre surgery party too, but I reminded her that you wouldn't be able to imbibe and that it would be just plain cruel to do so in front of you. So, we're going to have the preparty in your backyard.

That couple looks suspiciously like relatives of yours. Either way you slice it, though, they look a little TOO tough for my tastes.

Get some rest, man! You're gonna need it (and I'm not talking about your surger either)!

Goober love & healing goob smooches,
