Heron-Cam Picks Up Ms. Asta Marie for Date in Miami

Well, tonight's the night of my first date -- ever. And it's with Ms. Asta Marie. Since she's a sports-loving lady, I invited her to see the St. Louis Cardinals play the Florida Marlins here at the Dolphins Stadium in Miami.

Early this afternoon, I dispatched our heron-cam to pick her up. Here he is waiting outside our front door for my instructions.
He found the lovely lady at home, all decked out in a very becoming Pittsburgh Pirates cap -- which, since Pittsburgh is also in the National League, was quite appropriate attire.

While the Heron-cam was flying Ms. Asta Marie down to Florida Just Harry and I said a little pre-game prayer for our redbirds. They won the first game of the four-game series, but lost last night after a very long rain delay. It's a very important series if they are to be contenders for the October play offs.

And then, I donned what I hope will be a surprise -- a nice surprise -- for Asta Marie: my full Cardinal bobblehead regalia.

So stay tuned pals. I'll tell you more about the game and our date later, after we get to the ball park. But, like a gentleman should, I'll let Asta Marie decide how many "pawticulars" she wants to reveal.

Oh, and lest I forget, Just Harry is all excited because he and Princess Willow have connected; but he'll tell you more about that himself at another time.

A very trepidatious Jake



You have a date and we were checking out the Ekka.

Essex & Deacon

Cool-ness! Can't wait to hear about your date with Ms. Asta, Jake! You look really awesome with the whole baseball regalia...=)


Gus said...

Woohoo..hope you are enjoying the game, which the Cards are leading in the 9th inning.

Eat lots of hot dogs, drink lots of water, but stay away from those peanuts, the shells are hard to digest.

Hope you have a great time

Woohoo a date with Asta Marie! You are one lucky dude. Did it rain? Did you snuggle under the umbrella like she thought you would?
But most important....did you buy her ice cream????

Happy dating,

Pippa said...

Oooh, that is very impressive. Here I am with loads of girlfriends that I have sadly neglected of late, and here's you off out on a date. Trouble is if I asked one for a date all the others would be offended.

I have to think you fared better than I did on your date with Asta Marie, as you arranged it directly with her, rather than her scamp of a son, Dewey Dewster! She seemed quite giddy on her blog post!

Seems my search for romance has had a ripple effect all across dog-blogland!

Your pal in the pursuit of romance,

Hi Guys! Have you seen that TV commercial with all of the big birds lined up waiting for the turtles to cross their path? They look kinda like herons and I thought of you guys!

Peanut said...

Oh dating. How exciting.
