My Aging Pawrents

Since moving to Mayemphis, my pawrents have developed something of a social life! The last three weekends, they have abandoned us in favor of a WIDE variety of activities. They are nothing if not eclectic.

OK, Robin and Linda Williams I kind of understand. They live in VA, near Buena Vista (say Beoona Vista) which is near Lexington(big points in their favor) and they are on Prairie Home Companion a lot of Saturdays. And muzzer is a bit of an old Folkie. (not fogie!)

And last weekend was the big Mardi Gras Dinner, and while dogs were not allowed to attend, muzzer brought home a crawfish and some beads for me.

But Last Night!

Oh, the hoomiliation.

Oh, how embarrassed I was!

You will NEVER Guess where they went.

Mr. and Mrs. Brooks Brothers went to a Doo Wop Concert.

And by all reports, a fine time was had by all.

Ya know Doo Wop, right? I kinda think they were trying to channel Clear Lake, IA or somethin. But since that is close to Miss S, I guess that is OK. We even had a snowfall to add to the ambiance. They got these tickets when they donated to PBS here in Mayemphis. That was my bone money, and I didn't get to go.
Two rows from the front, right on the aisle. No wonder there are no doggie treats here!
But..they saw the DRIFTERS, the CHIFFONS, the FLAMINGOS, the CRYSTALS, and the CLASSICS! Many of the people doo wopping on stage were as old as my hoomans. Pretty incredible, if ya ask me.
Anyway. They are home and all is forgiven. They recommend it to anyone who wants a bit of nostalgia.
Have a great Sunday.

Mom's Dad loved the doowop too, and the motown. I don't even know wtf that means, but if bones were lost I am against it 100%

Maggie and Mitch said...

Our mom and dad are such poops! They rarely go out because it will cut into their 9PM bedtime! Mom says those groooops are before her time, but just a little bit!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Agatha and Archie said...

How much fun...FOR MUZZER NOT YOU..geesh what is up with these humans...Maybe it is time for all of us to have another big party....Love A+A

Eric said...

Ooo seats right on the aisle...I bet Gus Muzzer and Dad did plenty of that Du Wop dancing in the aisle when the Drifters started crooning.....rocking and a rolling in their bobby socks!! Can you imagine???!!

But Gussie you need to make a stand (or a sit) cos it's not really on for them to develop a social life that doesn't revolve round you.

Wiry wags, Eric xx

(he,he, I loved your comments about WFT behaviour Teka on steroids!!)

Awwh, too bad you didn't get to go Gussie. Sounds like it was a fun thing to go to though. Can you believe Mama & Papa & their friends went to Clear Lake, Iowa today?? Yep, antiquing. They also saw the Surf Ballroom, and the big lake with lots of goosies & an eagle. It was cold, but fun.
Then when they got home they saw the terribly sad news about Klaus. We are so bummed for Lulu & Bogart & their kitties. Our eyes keep leaking.
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby

It sounds like they had a very good time. Maybe they will teach you some of those fancy dance steps.

Our dad is an old fogie (not folkie) and he watches the Doo Wop concerts on PBS too. He has never gone to one though. Mom isn't as old as him so she gives him grief when she catches him watches groups that are too old for her to remeber (i.e. anything before the Fab Four). We live so far out in the boonies that social life is going to a movie up in fredericksburg or down in Ashland. WOW!.

What's doo-wop? Is that some kind of new raw food?
Chiffons are a kind of pie, I think. Flamingos are like chicken, only bigger. Classics could be anything. I'm thinking a nice steak. And Drifters are something that floats down the river, like fish. Doo-Wop sounds pretty good if you ask me!

I'm so hungry.....

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
