Preparing for the Big Party

So I am very excited to be going to the big Mega Barkday Party being held in honor of Koobuss, Amber-Mae, Lorenza, Lola, Dewey and Precious. I haven't even met half these guys, but I love making new friends!

So Scruffy and Lacie asked if I was bringing cheesesteaks. Hmm, Dad and me like them - but Dad eats them plain, I like all the toppings. Mom can't even look at a cheesesteak. She must be nuts...I mean would you turn away from one? And cheese fried, hmmmmm!

I don't turn away from any food except these potato chips Mom brought from South Africa called Tomato Fritos. You get Fritos here, but not the yukky tomato flavor! Anyway, other than tomato fritos, I love South African food, and I'm bringing some to the pawty! I am bringing boerewors - that is delicious beef sausage that you put on the braai (BBQ) and then slip between a fresh footlong bun. Yum. They aren't much to look at...Mom said they look a bit like something I'd poop out (gross Mom), but I can tell you, they are delicious. Or as they say in South Africa - baie lekker!

Mom also insists that I take a bottle of her favorite spread - Marmite! Dad won't go near the stuff and from informal testing, Mom says she has yet to find any American who likes the stuff. But Mom grew up eating it and can eat it ten times a day on toast or cheddar cheese. I like it too. So I will pack a jar just in case we sleep over and need breakfast fare.

So the party is October 27 and it's in Massachewsits - I wonder if it is anywhere near where my old girlfriend Gracie lives? I think I'll invite her too! I'm planning on hitching a ride with Koobus in her cute red convertible... I'll probably fall asleep, driving makes me sleepy.

Dad left town today for a few days on a job...boy will I miss him. Hopefully he will keep in touch by reading my blog every day. I miss you Dad!

You and Koobus look perfect in that little red convertible! I'm sure you'll have a great ride up there.

Axel...ah Man...we are now officially starved! Blogging is the best. We never woulda known bout those fab foods from S. Africa if you hadn't told us! I might pass on that sauce, but Lacie eats anything...Bring those huge sausages...we're gonna BBQ out in the back yard at the scary house. Regarding Penn in a moral dillema...the Ohio State Penn State game is at the same time as the pawty. We might make it a field trip that some of the dawgs mite wanna go to. We could stop in and see ur Dad. Does he like beer??? Gotta go play bitey face with Lac. That girl is inexhaustible.

looking forward to the pawty. The sausage looks good, and Muzzer says Marmite is OK. But muzzer eats anchovies too.

That sausage looks a lot like kielbasa. You cook it on the grill, cut it up, and eat it on a hoagie roll or with rye bread. It's really good!

I can't wait for this pawty. it's going to be the best ever! We'll pick you up in the morning. We have a lot of stops to make.

Koobuss Kisses,
