Going to Gussieland, in Mayemphis Tennessee

With apologies to Paul Simon:

"We're going to Gussieland

Gussieland

In Mayemphis Tennessee

We're going to Gussieland ... And

We've reason to believe

We both will be received

In Gussieland..."


The big question: how to get there?


Run all the way the way we did before? Too hot right now.


Heron-cam? Not sure he can carry two wires across the water.


Train? Poor connections from our end of the Florida peninsula.


Air? Aire Ruby is busy celebrating and there's no way we'll fly on any other carrier.


What's left?


Stay home? Noooooooo.


I know!!! Water!!!


Why don't we just zip down to our local port, hop on a cruise ship to Noo Owlins, then cruise right up the river to Mayemphis. Mayemphis, Tennessee? What a cool idea!!! Just look at the map -- it makes poifekt sense, Ollie!!


Ready Just Harry? Ready. Bro.

Gussie!!! Muzzer!!! We are on our way!!!


Just in case your dad has some time while we're there, I wore my Cardinals hat, and brought the ball Asta-Marie gave me.

Stay brave, pal!!! You'll be out of the Anti Setic in no time flat -- and the nursies will be there to take care of you while we bark with muzzer and distract her as best we can!!!


Wirey love,


Jake

That's a great way to get to Gussieland, but don't you think that boat is a little big for 2 wirey guys? Too bad that river doesn't go through Georgia...then you could pick us up too!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Heya Bakalots,
Thanks for you encouragement and you are right on the money, Paw-Lympics was alot of fun and we sure did get to meet lots of new buddies like y'all. Penny and Rusty went to Graceland but now they're over the Bridge with L-vas. Max and Shiloh got to go to Kissemmee last May; they said FL is hot even in May. Let's all think good stuff about Gussie. He should be awake by now.
