Thoughtless Thursday in or OUT? is it ravioli time?????

 It is going to be sunny and in the 80s. I say we go OUT.

I say... I saw ricotta, momma make ravioli! I have had ravioli on the brain ever since the Cosmo "steals the fake ravioli episode"... last week... You know....


Cosmo "stole" fair and square the raviolo spoon rest momma dropped.
It smelled delicious... it looked delicious...


 ALAS... it was impossible to eat...DUH
Now all JD talks about is RAVIOLI and how delicious they are... He is so suggestible...

Wendy Pohh has to ask: "JD, Are you out of your ever loving mind? After all that rain, and icky gray skies, we need to be OUT. I want a long long car ride, I want to go shopping and we go to visit the live sushi. I have cabin fever!"


JD: "You want to challenge me?  I am JD! You know they call me THE KING around here!  I say ravioli!"

The Wendy: "Like I am afraid of you, hahahahaha... I say out. Ravioli can wait. I would rather have grilled pork chops, anyway."


Silvieon4: "Wow both of those two fools are so deluded.  Momma is going to do what I want to do anyway!  1. We have to wait for the repair guy.  Let momma get busy making dinner while she waits. She has two thumbs, she can make the ravioli AND take us out! 
2. We are going OUT and we are going to visit the gerbils. BECAUSE I SAY SO.
3. Cosmo you don't get a vote because you have never done this and I want you to have that experience, get it? YOU have NOTHING TO THINK ABOUT!  I am making the decision for you."

    Max MAIL

    So, MAX 1in a billion, his momma calls him that... only child syndrome, don't get me started...celebrated Columbus Day by going to the United States National Arboretum (USNA) in Washington DC. 

    Hey momma, how come we did not go there? I have never been there!

    No. Stop. I do not want a list alphabetical chronological or otherwise of all the places we have been to. EEEEEK, she is in a mood. Anyway, this is some sort of fancy park, I think.

    Max, thank you for sharing the pics!


    Columns. Whoa, it would take a while to mark all of those! 

    Hey wait, 

    Who is that?  Boy or girl?  I can't sniff! Cute anyway,  specially considering the non Bichon part!
    And athletic?  Ball player??


    Back to the arboretum. Trees, grass, pollen, bees , butterflies...
    Wait momma, this reads more like your allergy list!
    Except for the butterflies.
    BTW, where exactly is the butter in the butterflies?
    What do you mean no butter??  Then why do you all call them butter flies???????

    Hooomans.
    They lack logic.

    I see the bee! Yea I know how you feel about bees momma.  
    Momma is allergic to bees. And just looking at the pics she itches and grabs her throat.  Remember when the bees invaded our gazebo?  I do! It took forever to get them to evacuate, Look: http://www.silvieon4.com/2009/04/time-to-say-goodbye-to-bees.html


    Adam took the pictures? He is not afraid of bees? Hm.  I need to go visit Adam, soon. Very soon.


    The pictures are pretty. I figure that they all had a great time, I mean...



    Roo looks wiped out... or he has sudden limp leg syndrome that attacks when you do not want to leave a place or walk back to a car.   I have suffered from that kind of "exhaustion"...



    In any case, Max, thank you for sharing your day with the "shut ins" here in Chesapeake.... Mommmmmmmmaaaaa let's talk  BUTTER flies....

    Thank you for hosting Ruckus the Eskie & Earl's World


    Roomer, LIES and MY PERFECT BUTT

    The roomer is a  LIE.

    Vicious, cold, calculated LIE.

    Yea I am mad.

    And I will get to the "bottom" of this. I will find the source and I will deal with it appropriately. I don't come from a family of lawyers for nothing you know...

    What am I woffing about?  Well, it came back to me that some vicious entity has been telling anyone with ears that my recent surgery was a butt lift! I know, right?! AS IF! [TMZ wanted confirmation!!!!!! Had to tell Harvey the "lawyer" that publication would be libel because it is a LIE. Hi Harvey.... sneer]

    My tush has never needed to be lifted because it never dropped! Boy -oh-boy-oh-boy, To kick a girl when she is down... how low can they sink?

    While I would have liked to keep the details of my procedure private, I feel compelled to clear the air if you will, before the lie makes it on any one of the gossip sites.  I don't want it to show up on D-Listed or Just Jared or on any one of those... sites... and have everyone believe it.

    While we are at it, I did not have a tail transplant, my original equipment is perfection and no replacement was ever needed.

    And furthermore, I did not receive liposuction, botox, or implants or fillers and no, there was no consultation with the Drs from "Botched" and certainly no plan has been made to fly to Brazil for a stay at the Ivo Pitanguy Clinica! 

    My butt was and is perfect! Ask  momma.  She always says that my butt is God's best expression of that body part! And it is!!!!

    What I had was a simple cyst excision, Period. End.

    I suppose this rumor was fueled by the green monster of jealousy. Obviously who ever started it has a bad butt. So... I am looking around. Looking for the ugliest saddest butt attached to a vicious little mouth... I am hoping they have assets because I will be seeking to recover for  my damages and this girl ain't cheap!



    The red leash is attached to moi. Does that look like a butt in need of plastic surgery???????

    Heck NO!

    Momma, is the Silvie OK?

    It's a new ritual. Every morning Cosmo sniffs the Silvieon4's stitches and then he goes over to the momma to express his unhappiness and concern with the blue things.




    He loves the Silvie. He clearly wants those things out.


    Just to make sure everyone understand his point he will walk back and forth sniffing the stitches and putting his paw on momma as to get some action out of her.Hearing that she is OK and that everything is OK and that the stitches will be out soon, Cosmo gets this look... 


    This is the "I hear hear you , but I don't believe you" look.

    Meanwhile, Silvieon4 loves the attention. no, LOVES THE ATTENTION... is more accurate. And she is doing very well, that tail wags at every opportunity and aside from the itches, everything is healing well.

    But Cosmo boy wants her de-stitched ASAP.
