I know you're not going to believe this, but I missed the first half of Sausagefest. The People had the party at the neighborhood park this year, and Woman said I would be "too much trouble" to take. Me? Too much trouble? How much trouble is too much exactly? I hold to the statement that I am just the right amount of trouble!
The People had 15 lbs of bratwurst! Woman made pasta salad, cucumber and tomato salad, baked beans, deviled eggs and banana pudding for sides. The food looked and smelled really good, and I'm pleased to say that I did get me some of that brat. Yummy!
Ian manned the grill. I'm not sure what Kevin is looking at there. Maybe this was his first time cooking up sausage. He's Canadian, so who knows what's going through that head of his. LOL!
Everyone ate a whole lot of food, but did take a moment or two to pose for some photos.
This new baby was not a threat to me, because she's not big enough to eat sausage yet.
This baby was certainly no threat to me, because she's not even born yet. Silly fetus gets no sausage!
This baby was a threat to me, because she has all kinds of teeth and eats just about anything you put in front of her face. Luckily she's short and weak, so I could steal things from her hand pretty easily!
After Woman came back to the house and picked me up, I wasted no time getting some lady action. Hey Hillary!
The dudes played some rootball and other games.
I sniffed some dog butts.
Hello the People! Thanks for finally coming and getting me.
So, Sausagefest was a success. The keg of Pisgah Endless Summer was floated, there were lots of left overs, and everyone went home nice and full.
Everyone, including Gizmo.
He was snagging sausage all night long! Go Gizzy!!
I know you're all looking forward to today's big post on Sausagefest, but I need a little tit for my tat first. Once everyone surfs on over to threadless and votes for Ian's latest submission, I'll post the party pics.
The Second Annual Sausagefest is scheduled for this weekend, hosted by My People! There will be bratwurst from Hickory Nut Gap, an icy keg of Endless Summer from Pisgah Brewing, and some other sides and desserts made by yours truly. OK, actually Woman is making the food, but I am in the kitchen supervising and cleaning up anything she drops.
Our friend Doug is bringing some sound system equipment so we can have music, and we're going to hold a friendly little open mic night so people can showcase their talents. I haven't decided what I'm going to sing yet. Your suggestions are welcome!
Hey all you bloggers! The annual East Coast Blogger Meet Up is scheduled for early October in Williamsburg, VA. We got a great rate on a sweet condo, so if you're interested, shoot Girville an email. I won't be there, so don't get too excited, but Woman will be there.
When Woman is up working in the garden, I get real excited, because I know I'm going to get a treat. I like to stare at her and give her a couple "warning barks" across her bow. If she doesn't respond, I start to bark like a maniac until she can't take it any more!
This morning I was treated to a yummy tomato. Woman says it's a bribe to keep me quiet, but I still think it's a treat for being such a good boy. LOL!
That was one yummy tomato!
Once Woman gives me a treat, she has to get out of the garden fast or I start barking more and more, demanding another treat. I got that Woman trained up real good!
I'm back people! I had a good time playing with Junebug and Pugsley. Junebug and I actually became good friends. Pugsley and Junebug are kind of feral Pugs. When I first saw Woman again, I had forgotten who she is! Isn't that funny? My first inclination was to hunt her down and possibly eat her. I didn't though. Aren't you glad? Otherwise, I wouldn't be blogging right now!
Thanks for all your sweet words about our Granny. She passed away peacefully last Tuesday around 8am. We will miss her greatly, but we're happy to know she has finally made her way to be with Jesus.
