A Great Dane Stole My Heart
Y’all, I just had to recycle this post. Yesterday was my 50th birthday. I’m reminiscing. You’ll see, at the bottom of this post. And today I’ll be driving all over the outlying towns of Tulsa, looking for a house. So we’re not homeless come November. So while you’re reading about the Great Dane which stole my heart, I’m going to be frantically searching for our next home. Paws crossed!
A Great Dane stole my heart last night. Blue is gorgeous. Lookit.
This is a This’n’That Thursday blog hop, sponsored by 2 Brown Dawgs, and I had to lead with Blue, the Great Dane.
Hunny and I were visiting friends last night, when one of their neighbors stepped out of the garage with this handsome Great Dane on a leash. I made Hunny stop the car so I could jump out and pet him. His owner tells me he’s a year and a half old. The entire time I was petting him, Blue was trying to put his paws on me and was mouthing me the way Great Danes do, with their giant soft mouths. I melted all over the sidewalk. Then Hunny called me away. Before I had time to pull Chicken Taffy out of my purse. 🙁
Weird Things are Afoot at the Circle Cinema
In other news, my boy, Squatch, and I went to a book signing on Tuesday. Weird Al was in town for the day, signing copies of his children’s book (which is adorable). And because his movie, UHF, was filmed here 25 years ago, Tulsa was the only city where he ALSO had a film showing, then Q&A. We had tickets.
We hung out at the Circle Cinema downtown for half the day, which means we were starving. Fortunately they were serving food. I use the word food rather loosely.
Al, or George, makes this Twinkie Wiener Sandwich for his best friend in the beginning of the movie. We had to try one. The wiener was hot. I took photos of my boy’s face as he was eating it.
Yeah. It tastes exactly like it sounds. The Cheez Whiz was the perfect topping. Please don’t ask me to eat another one.
The Man, the Legend, The Genius of Weird Al
But we weren’t there for the Twinkie Wiener Sandwich. We were there to meet Al and have things signed. Squatch wanted his top hat signed, the one he and Hunny made. Here he is with Al.
And do you know what my boy did? He had Al sign the hat to ME!!
I have the best boy in the world.
Okay, so I have to prep you for my photo with Al. I went fan girl, in that I froze up and said maybe three words. And I looked up at the guy taking the photo, not at the camera. And I wore a weird Hawaiian shirt instead of something I knew I looked good in. And I pulled my hair up because I was playing with it the entire time I was in line. Oh, it was horrid. Until this moment.
Yeah. That. My entire bucket list in a moment’s time.
One more thing –
And I don’t care …
Spreading the good chews …
