Sunday Drive.


                                                          Do your parents ever take Sunday Drives to nowhere?
                                                       Mom & Dad like to do this just to have a getaway day.
                                                       No chores and no tv or internet, just the open hwy.

                                                        We headed toward the mountains this time.

                                                                          Hwy 2 going East.




                                                                        Wenatchee River. 

                                                Leavenworth is a Bavarian-styled village in the Cascade Mountains, in central Washington State. Alpine-style buildings with restaurants serving German beer and food line Front Street. The Nutcracker Museum displays thousands of nutcrackers, some dating back centuries. On the Wenatchee River, Waterfront Park is a habitat for ospreys and eagles. The village is a gateway to nearby ski areas and wineries.   


                                                                                   Lot's of Beer and Brat's

                                                                                It's this busy in winter too.
                                                                          We didn't stop this time, it was 89F.
                                                                               Mitzie and I don't know how to
                                                                          walk nicely on a leash without tripping dad.
                                                                             Mom said we are to friendly and greet everyone.
                                                                          I think she knows we would want a Brat and Beer.


                                                                        Mitzie, wanted to be a back seat driver. BOL
                                                                        Mom didn't take my picture, because I was
                                                                        sleeping in the backseat.

                                                                    Time to go back home I 90 West.

We are fixed.

                                        OMD Pals we are finally fixed.
                           Who knew that getting a New Header for our Blog
                       could cause such a disaster. My Mom is on a roll with
                      this thingies. First the refrigerator, then the dog treats,
                      yeah we all know that fiasco. Then google wouldn't let
                      Ann at Zoolatry help us. They thought she was a spammer.

                        After many hours of e mails Ann had things under control.
                     Thank goodness, our mom was so lost she doesn't know computer
                      language. Have you seen that stuff !#|+@&"Http&=? oh make no
                      mistakes either, trust my mom she knows this is true.

                        I know many of you have headers designed by Ann.
                      We are so happy with the design she created just for us.
                      Mitzie and Astro  appreciate her making them look good.
                      Normally Ann charges for her work, can you imagine
                      she did all of design and placement on our blog at no charge.
                      Ann, also added all the badges on the right side bar too.
                      Having friends like Ann is what Blogville is all about.

                       Come back and see The Adventures of Astro and Mitzie.
                 We never know what's going to happen, but we promise it will be good.

       Here is Ann's e mail in case you need it.

Mommy cant bake or blog

                                  PLEASE EXCUSE OUR NEW HEADER.

                                  OUR SWEET FRIEND ANN AT ZOOLARTY 
                                       MADE US A PAWSOME NEW PHOTO.


                                         MOMMY MESSED IT ALL UP!

                                         HOPE TO GET IT FIXED SOON.

                                            ASTRO AND MITZIE

                                          Keep scrolling to see our treats mom messed them up too!

Old Mother Hubbard

                               Does anyone remember Old Mother Hubbard?


 Old Mother Hubbard. Millicent Sowerby.  Cardinal Thomas Wolsey refused to facilitate a divorce from Queen Katherine of Aragon for King Henry VIII. The King wanted a divorce so that he could marry Anne Boleyn. The doggie and the bone in the rhyme refer to the divorce, the cupboard is a reference to the Catholic Church and Wolsey is Old Mother Hubbard. The divorce was later arranged by Thomas Cramner and resulted in the break with Rome and the formation of the English Protestant church.

                                               She went to the cupboard to get her poor dog a bone.
                                       Our mom is always looking for easy recipes for dog treats.
                                         Even though she has never made dog treats before.  
                          Yesterday she found one for Pupkin Biscuits, it looked simple enough.
                                      She gathered up all the ingredients and started the process.
                                                         You can find the recipe here.

                                                     Not too bad looking for a first time.
                                                  Oh we need to give a shout out to Aunt Cathy,
                                                  she gave mom a rolling pin. Thanks Aunt Cathy!

                                                Mom is not sure if this is where she went wrong.
                                           The dough was really hard to roll. She sprinkled it 
                                            with some flour and kept rolling it out.

                                      We found the little dog bone "cookie cutters" at wal-mart for a $1.00


                                       The recipe said makes 36.. Ooooopppsss  
                                       We only see 11 too late now shit   darn it.

                                                  Scroll down for epic fail.

                                  Mommy threw them out in the back patio and they didn't even crack.
                                 We may need doggie dentures. 
                                 Mommy said she thinks they were to thick and she should 
                                 have rolled the dough out thinner.???????

                                Mitzie and I keep thinking she needs to order from Chewy dot Com.
                             We'll try this again another day and see if we can get better results.

The Big Monster.


                      Hi furpals.................

                                                The refrigerator came finally.

                   The man came and delivered the monster, first he took it off the truck.
         Then the men had to take it out of the crate. No not the dog crate, the shipping crate.

                                     Mom made them bring it in through the garage.

It's so big it would not fit through the front gate.

Mom also said NO you are not going to
bring a beast on the hardwood floors!
She's the boss dad said!!!!!!!

Yep, Mitzie put a smudge on the freezer door. She drinks toilet water too.

Did you ever wounder what my Mom has in the frig?
No? Okay we will show you anyway.
The freezer is on the bottom.
You knew that already right?

Be sure & come back tomorrow.
Mommy made us treats.
We are still alive but the treats,
we'll tell you tomorrow.

Love you pals 
Astro and Mitzie.

Dogs can't read can they?

                                Astro, Astro,  come quick brother, look at that sign!!       

Astro, it says CHASE.
I think it means we can chase each other and not get in trouble.

                                        Mitzie move over so I can see out the window.


Mitzie, that's Chase bank where dad goes inside
and when he comes back to moms car 
he gives her all the green papers.
Then tomorrow mom goes shopping for our food.
So, move over this is my side of the backseat.
Mitzie can't read. Silly Girl.

                                            Mommy is busy this week.
               Did Mitzie tell you, our refrigerator  went to the rainbow bridge?
        I think it pee peed all over the floor before it left, but that could have been water.

             So mom's shopping and comparing and measuring and deep breathing,
         she said something about just to keep stuff cold cost more than her first car.

             Dads worried he is going to have to move the pantry over 3 inches.
             Just as long as there is room for our food and treats who cares.

            We'll be back next week if my ma don't melt first.
              It's 81 here today and that is HOT for Seattle.

                                         Mitzie is busy too, sleeping with the fan on.

                                                 See ya next week.
