Well it's A-L-O-H-A!!!My favorite beach in the world is calling!
North Shore, Oahu, Hawaii
And for all us map lovers ...
Map of the Hawaiian Islands
Island of Oahu
(We'll be staying near Shark's Cove
just above Waimea Bay.)
This time tomorrow the E-P
(yes he's back!)
and I will be in Las Vegas,
probably playing blackjack
downtown on East Freemont
at the one and only El Cortez:
single deck, $5 table with
the best rules in Las Vegas.
(I'm still ticked at the Bonanza
changing its table rules!)
Then it's off for Honolulu and the North Shore!
Waikiki, Honolulu, at Sunset
It's been an exciting lead-up to liftoff tomorrow morning.
Anonymous Grumpy Cat is long gone.
Terry started morphing back into the E-P
two days after the mail drop-off box debacle.
He was hanging out beside the fire,
grumping because he was cold,
and having an animated conversation with his iPad,
when he suddenly discovered
that I was no longer washing dishes.
I was taking pictures!
AGC: What are you doing?
MLB: Taking pictures of my Grumpy Cat.
AGC: I don't want you taking pictures of me!
I don't want to be in your blog!
I want to be anonymous!
MLB: No problem! I'll call you Anonymous Grumpy Cat!
And then we were both cracking up
and Anonymous Grumpy Cat was now the E-P!
(His picture is blurry because I was laughing.)
By Sunday the E-P was up for a two mile loop.
I was stomping along the sidewalk
having a Rick-Santelli-style rant about something
when suddenly I heard a growly-snarl behind me.
MLB: What are you doing?
E-P: It seems we have more than one Grumpy Cat in the family.
In fact, I think you are the True Grumpy Cat.
I have created a monster!
Now, if I grumble or rant,
the E-P just gives a little growly-snarl,
and I get the message.
The TGC c'est moi!
The E-P now mocks me!
I caught his shadow in action
as he snarly-growled at me
on our two mile walk:
If you look closely you can see the AGC's claws out;
but don't ask me what's going on with the shadow of his head,
I have no idea ~ probably something Woo Woo!
Teasing the E-P is always a two-edged sword.
Bottom line is ...
I'll be taking a break from blogging.
I have learned that it is important
to inform my blogging friends
if I am taking a break.
I have learned that if I don't,
a certain Labradoodle
who carries an orange ball in her mouth
will hunt me down!
Take care everyone!
