Pip and Puddles Come to Visit!


Mr. Pip and Ms. Puddles continued their world Bucket List tour today and arrived in style on the steam locomotive, Western Maryland's famous tourist attraction, as it chugged into town with the two celebrities onboard.  



Not since Jeopardy's host Alex Trebek visited a few years back has there been such a stir in the Western Maryland mountains.


After a celebrity greet and meet at the station, Puddles car was delivered to her there and before you could say 'It's Groundhog Day' Puddles and Pip were at our door!


I told Gracie, no partying at our house!  (I've heard stories).  So the group took the party to Rocky Gap State Park Resort several miles east of us, where they rented a cabin, a Cheeto bubble machine, and a keg of Bud Light.  Gracie invited some friends to meet the famous P & P.


Wanting to cram as much into the day as possible, the next stop was Deep Creek Lake where the two put on skis and joined others at the Wisp ski resort.  Within seconds, Pip lost one of his ski's and then decided he'd rather be eating cheeseburgers, so the pair of party-ers shot out to Gracie's place for some late day partying antics before the paw-rents got home.


Since there were no chandeliers to hang from, Puddles did some ear-aerobics while Pip watched for the po-po.



Being just a hop a skip and a jump away from WV seemed to bring out the redneck in the team as they partied hardy into the night...  Leaving just minutes before the humans returned home.


Dear Diary,

What a day!  I never knew what I'd been missing until Pip and Puddles came to visit! They taught me some pretty important stuff... like, according to Pip you can never eat too many cheeseburgers and Puddles showed me how to catch vermin. I have been coddled, protected and smothered all of my life.  And now...  I can only dream of someday when I can spend time once again with 2 of the funn-est, funniest, craziest friends I know.  I miss them already.  Gracie.

Alex Trebeck ain't got nothing on us! That train sure was fun and what a greeting! Yes, we will be signing paw-tographs, just wait your turn in line. Thanks!

Mr. Pip said...

Uh Puddles, that's no ordinary vermin ...he's kind of famous, almost as famous as us, but not because he's on America's Most Wanted but because he actually has an important job.

Oh my, he does like burgers and beer doesn't he. Sure, Phil, I will give you my special recipe. Don't worry Puddles is all talk about hunting ...well, she's not really all talk, but I'll keep her away from you.

Happy Groundhogs Day. Our local predictor say we'll have an early Spring. Good news I think!

Lovable Lily said...

Gracie, we are so stinkin' proud of you! You survived the visit with Pip and Puddles. It's a miracle you all didnt end up in the po-po.

We could hardly believe that Phil didn't want to run right home. After all, today is his BIG day. Now we'll just never know if winter has been extended or not.

We really enjoyed your adventures with those goofballs! Sorry, I mean Pip and Puddles. We bet you're gonna need a long, long nap to recover from all the excitement.

Thanks for helping Pip fulfill some of his life long dreams.

Hugs,
Lily Belle & Muffin

Mr. Pip said...

OK, I have an idea how about we use the couch cushions (that we just happen to have in the car) to prop Phil up so he can still do his job ...

Oops, he is still falling over ...the guy just can't hold his beer, I guess.

3 doxies said...

No, I has a betters idea...let's put him on da grill...COME BACK PHIIIIIL!

Puddles

Mr. Pip said...

Cover your ears Phil ...wait do you have ears? Oh, never mind ..

Psst Puddles ...I think we might be going up the river (as in jail) permanently if we let anything happen to this guy. He's kind of a big deal, not your average rodent.

GOOSE said...

Blessings,
Goose

Bobbi and Gracie said...

Oh My mom is rolling in her chair laughing so hard at you 2! BOL!!!!

Marg said...

You two are just entertaining everyone and it is just terrific. Did you put Phil back or is he being barbecued. Hope you make it to your next destination and not in jail. Gracie, we sure are glad you survived the most famous visitors. They are such fun. Take care.

Molly The Wally said...

Brilliant Gracie you survived a day with Blogvilles' answer to Thelma and Louise and you managed to avoid being knicked by the po-po. Epic fun! Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly

Inger said...

Oh, what a day you all had, I'm kind of glad I was too preoccupied to invite you to California! Lot's of vermin around here, but no big ears and no Phil. Isn't he supposed to be on TV today or soon sometime soon? We need to know if winter will come back, go on, or go away, so you better let him get to work, Puddles.
I must say that Mr. Pip looks sooo happy being able to fulfill this part of his bucket list. You are a good friend, Puddles.
Gracie and Bobbi, I left a reply to your wedding comment on my blog. Bobbi, you really are acting like the mother of the bride already....

Madi and Mom said...

MOL MOL MOL Gracie!!
Western Maryland will never, ever no never be the same again. Once P&P have visited any normalcy ceases.

I wish it would rain Cheetos here.
I hope the PoPo were satisfied that all was ok with Mr. GH Phil!!

Thanks for the mol and lol Hugs madi and Mom
