A visit with My Sissie

Y'all remember my sissie E.Beth, right?
She is the one who brought Teka to our house. And she is younger than E.Rabbit, but taller than E.Rabbit.

She came to visit us in Mayemphis this weekend! We did not have much notice, because the trip wasn't planned very far in advance. But we moved a few boxes of books to make a place for her to sleep, and Muzzer drove the Gussiemobile to Nashville to pick her up, because she made her reservations too late to fly right into Mayemphis. (don't ask, don't tell!)

Well, I was glad to see her, and Teka was surely glad that she came back from visiting with Swede William in time to visit. And Muzzer and Dad pulled out all the stops and showed her around Mayemphis. They took her to visit Rhodes College, which is where Dad will be teaching in a couple of weeks

Muzzer even let her take a picture of Muzzer and Dad with the camera!
Then they took her out to dinner and to Beale Street to see the crowds and hear the moosic.

They even took her to the Peabody to watch the duck parade! And they drove by Graceland to see the lines, and they went to the Art Mooseum, which is very close to our house.

Why, you ask, are there no pictures of Gussie and Teka here?

Because we did not get to go! And we did not get to ride to Nashville last night to stay in a hotel so she could catch her flight this morning at 5:52 ayem. We are unhappy dogs. We feel this is unfair. But .. because we were glad to see her, we are not going on strike. We will extract revenge in other ways.

I really would have liked to see those ducks

Either your Dad is very tall or your Muzzer is VERY short ;) Looks like a fabulous time was had by all. Except you and Teka. Time to make a stain???

Did she spend any time with you two. It looks like she was quite busy.

Hey pals, the Js have been to the Peabody and seen the duck parade, about 18 years ago! Had forgotten all about it until seeing this post. Glad you had a nice weekend but seeing the ducks would have been pawsome! J x

Hey, GussMan!

I'm glad you got to see E. Beth over the weekend. I bet that meant lots of good booty scritches and belly rubs in between all of the wining and dining your parents did with her.

Bummer you didn't get to see the ducks. Maybe you can make that a special outing just for you and Muzzer sometime.

Goob love,

E.Beth, THANK YOU for bringing Teka to the home of Gussie and Muzzer. Thank you. Thank you. From the bottom of my sunny Swedish heart. Thank you.

P.S. What does the E stand for? Excellent (like my Teka)? Energetic (like my Teka)? Exotic (also like my Teka)?
