Afternoon Fun

Dad suggested dindin at Lenny and Joe's yesterday afternoon and we got to go too! whooohoooooo
Mitch couldn't wait to get in the truck!
I no longer jump in on my own. Dad lifts me in because I can't jump that high anymore and to get out, I jump into mom's arms and she catches me on the way down to soften my landing.
We had one stop to make before we got to Lenny and Joe's. Dad wanted to get our truck washed! We're not allowed to stay in the truck while it's going through the wash so we wait on the patio in front of the car wash building.
Notice dad's outfit - Indian motorcycle top, Carhartt's and Dansko's!
Our truck is nice and clean!
Next stop - Lenny and Joe's!
Mitch gets the last of dad's clam chowder!
Shrimp roll and tartar sauce, fries and cole slaw! yummmmmm
OMG, how embarrassing, mom! Yes, I want that piece of fish but do I really have to stick my head under Mitch's undercarriage to get it?! What will my friends think?
When we got back home, there was a box sitting on our back porch. Guess what was inside?
Dad's new Indian motorcycle jacket! OMG, NOT ANOTHER ONE!
Yes, we do owe you all a HUGE picture of his Indian motorcycle jacket collection! We haven't forgotten.
The front~
And the back of the jacket. Yes, dad. It is very, very nice!
His reasoning is that the jacket is black and tan - like us!
Okay - sure dad -whatever you say!
So that was our Friday afternoon!
We sure did have fun!

So until next time.................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Dear Maggie, poor you having to try to get your food like that! What an indignity for such a classy Lady as you!!

Carhartt's! We know about that now. And we didn't just a couple of weeks ago! Our Girl came home from the mountains with a borrowed Carharrt's hat (a knit cap with a bill) and Moma fell in love with it. Now we've got four! (The guy in the mountains let our Girl keep his and Moma bought three more - plenty to pass around!) And the would perfectly coordinate with your dad's very cool looking Indian motorcycle jacket. Or with YOU! Tan. And dark charcoal. Now all we need is a Lenny and Joe's (yummmmmm)

Love ya
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Pee esS Francesca looks stunning! Big Brady has some spiffing up to do!

Gus said... far is it from Mayemphis to Lenny and Joe's?

gussie n teka

Niamh said...

Glad to see that your dad is color coordinating his jacket with your fur! That meal looked delish and I'm glad you got to taste some even if you had to crawl under Mitch to get it.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

First we have to say we adore your new header picture. Our Mom needs to contact your Mom about how to do this.

We'd love to see your Dad's Indian jackets - does he have a motorcycle to go with each one.

PS - our Mom wears Carhartt overalls - had to do some looking to find a pair that weren't too long for her short legs.

Koobuss said...

Hi Guys!

You sure did have a great day yesterday! You went for a ride in the truck and then got to eat some super supper at Lenny and Joe's. (What's Lenny and Joe's? We don't have any of those around here. Wish we did though.) And to top it off, all your snow is gone!!! How lucky can you get!! We still have between one and two feet and it's been melting for a week!!! Yikes!!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Sue said...

Tell your dad that we understand. Mom has quite a jacket collection.She loves to buy jackets for herself and as gifts for others, too.

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Dindin outside with the humans! That's super! I think I need to persuade Mom to do that with us too! heh! Mom thinks the jacket on your Dad looks AWESOME! The colors do kind of look like your fur you can say you all match! *grins*

Hope you have a great weekend!


The Army of Four said...

Wowzers! Cool jacket, Dad-o-M&M!!!!!
A ride in the truck - that sounds like tons of fun! And going somewhere to eat!!? It's even better!
Play bows,
PS: Maggie, you look like a lamb-ikins being picked up like that! VERY sweet!!!

McGillicutty said...

MMMMMM........ I am drooling!!! That food looks yummy, and what a Friday afternoon!!! And, Maggie, no worries! Your friends don't rightly care about HOW you get food or even what position you have to get in to get it. As long as you are successful, we do not care! (I'd be scared to go under me fur mom's undercarriage...yikes!--she's quite heavy, you know!)

Irish Love,

Sara Diana said...

Anonymous said...

I wish we lived closer so's I could get to know Lenny & Joe. They MUST be nice peoples if they make good food like that. YUM! I was drooling just looking at those Most Delicious pictures.

And your dad looks Most Snazzy in his new jacket. It was very thoughtful of him to get one that matches the two of you!

Wiggles & Wags,

the many Bs said...

hi M&M! that's a very pretty jacket that your dad has. and it does match you! we're glad that your dad is as stylish as you two are.

we're glad you aren't jumping into the truck, Maggie. that can be too difficult for a 'mature' lady like you are. sometimes Baxter wants our mom to lift him too. he's just being lazy, silly boy.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie and Mitch!
Sure you all had a great friday afternoon!
That food looks delicious!
Your Dad's new jacket is pawesome!
I am sure he loves it!
Kisses and hugs

Misadventures of Widowhood said...

Me don't know why you aren't allow in the car wash. It's SO much fun to go in that water and wind tunnel. Me loves it! Beg next time, maybe they will let you go!

Sherry said...

We have to agree--black and tan is always spiffy! (But chowder, fish and chips are better.)

The Oceanside Animals said...

There are worse ways to spend Friday. Working until 6:30pm comes to mind! (Not that that's what I was doing ...)

Oskar said...

It sounds like a great place to go, yummers!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch
I wante to tell you that you bloggie pictures are always awsome.
I see changes and I love them all.
I would love some of that din din that you were "eyeing" up too, it looked so yummy. I have a very fast mouth!
Your truck must look so spiffy now getting all clean in the car wash. We should do that too.
And we love your dads Indian jacket. It is so beautiful.

Kess And Her Mama said...

What an awesome day! Truck ride, clam chowder, fish and chips. Way cool on the "dog"ometer!.

The Indian jacket is super cool. No wonder, your dad is modelling it proudly.

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

You are so lucky. We have never attended an automated car wash. Not even to sit outside. The folks had us in the TerrierMobile last week while some kids washed the outside of it though. We were all(folks included) panting heavily by the time we could roll down the windows! That Lenny & Joe place sounds good.Maggie you do what you gotta do for treats.It's okay girl! Your pop looks very cool in his cycle jacket.Does the mama get a matching one??Have a good week.
BRD & Hootie

Teddy Bear said...

What a fun way to enjoy your day. Clam chowder, shrimp, and fries sound YUMMY! Your Dad's new jacket is pretty pawesome too. I wonder if they make motorcycle jackets for pups?:)

Teddy Bear

Roan said...

Looks like a fun afternoon! That clam chowder makes me hungry for some. We don't get really good chowder in landlocked, Illinois. ;) The jacket is a beauty. Would love to see the collection. My uncle had an Indian motorcycle when I was a youngster. He used to take me rides through the pasture. It was fun!

Golden Samantha said...

I am furry late, but what a pawsome Fri. afternoon. I have to say... the truck looks super after its wash, Dad awesome in his sharp duds and the food so yummy in a nor-eastern way - wish we had that kind of take out foodables here!!! But that black and tan Indian jacket is amazing! And it looks super great on your dad M and M!!!! Have a good Sunday!
Hugs xo

Martha said...

What a great afternoon! We think it is good that you get lifted into the truck.
Bailey could do with a lift but growls instead!
Always yummy food wherever Maggie and Mitch are!
Your Dad's new jacket is very cool and the colours match the two of you perfectly.
We have found humans are easily pleased........
love you lots
Martha & Bailey xxx

Unknown said...

Maggie you sure gave "leg up" a new meaning. What a lovely arrangement to have somebody lift you up like a baby. My Linguini has something similar set up. I loved all the food you guys ate and the jacket!

The only thing better than an Indian motorcycle jacket would be one with YOUR pictures on it, Mitch and Maggie!

kishiko said...

Stardust said...

Kids, I'm loving the purple touch up there!
Yes Maggie, please let yourself be carried and don't try any dangee stunts, you're too precious.

Now dad is cool! Good looking, sexy, and I'm longing to see his beautiful partner. Everybody loves a complete picture! =D

parlance said...

That jacket is just gorgeous, especially the back.

Clam chowder sounds delicious.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Maggie girl, don't you worry. I'll stick my head anywhere to get myself a share of good food!! The shrimp roll pic had me (and mom) drooling...

Maggie, your dad looks very cool in his jacket! Can you please tell him he reminds us of George Clooney??

How Sam Sees It said...

You are aging gracefully, dear Maggie! I love the jacket!


Amber and Nala said...

Don't worry Maggie, I the pursuit of yummy food whatever must be done, MUST be done! ;)


Puggle Preston said...

oh that is a big truck your dad has. I wouldn't be able to jump that high either.
Don't be embarrassed, maggie. I would have done anything to get a bite of that fish too. yum!
Cool motorcycle jacket. Your dad looks very handsome in it.
