Today, Akemi had some friends over to the house. I’d like to say “We entertained” but, in truth, the dogs did most of the entertaining.
We enjoyed a leisurely home cooked lunch.
I didn’t have time to make ice cream, so I picked up some desserts from that always-busy cake and pastry place in the Granville Island Market. I counted on two pastries each, ten in all, but decided to go for an even dozen. Somehow, I ended up with an extra.
Later, we hung around, played with the dogs. Jelly took a backwards tumble down the short front steps when she backed up without looking, but I’m pleased to report her extra padding saved her from any serious injury.
I’m off to Vegas tomorrow. I’ll get in around 6:00 p.m. and have a couple of hours to get settled in before dinner at Scarpetta’s. Marty G. will be getting in late and I look forward to catching up with him over drinks.
Thanks for all the great advice re: getting my dogs cross-country. I’m not up for the six day drive and, while I do appreciate the offers, I couldn’t trust anyone but myself to get them there. Unless, as someone pointed out, I could hire The Transporter. Familiar with the movie? You should check it out. I hear there’s a television series in the works. What an awesome installment that would be: Frank Martin is hired to deliver three pugs and a french bulldog to Toronto. Hmmmm.
Check out tomorrow’s blog for behind the scenes pics and vids of that super-secret new set from the back of Stargate: Universe’s second season!
I leave you with another video of our resident clown, Lulu –
