What a busy week...furst I met with the doods campaign managers, my dear friends the pug kids from Idaho and we started to map out the best route to Caliyfornia....it is a long way over hills and mountains and deserts!!! I is from Iowa and nevers drove on these kinds of roads! Isa will just make sure I drink lots of Gatorade.
So the next morning the pug kids( isa always will call them that's) called me up and said, "Gussie we are hitting the road, pack your bags, and Sterlings potato chips....". When I toles my Momma hers got all teary eyed and Maggie started to pout in the corners, cos hers loves me and will miss me, and Stellie just shook her head. I gave them all a kiss and shook my Dad's hand, grabbed my Scooby Doo overnight bag and fired up the Big Ole Girl.
It took so much gas from our little local station that the pump went dry!!! After I figured out just where reverse was, and explained to Officer Dan why his police car had a small dent in it, I hit the road. He yelled that he would be contacting the Doods insurance company before the day was gone. Isa gotta remember and tell them that....oh well....
We loaded up the Big Ole Girl and headed down the road.
Momma Carol gave me a hug when she saw I was feeling a little over whelmed and that made me feel all the better. I turned up the tunes, and started singing, " Looking for adventure...headed down the highwayyyyyyyyy...."
My Doods came up front to relax and kick back and to sing wif me, cos they were surprised I could sing sooo good, and the next fing I heard was OMD and there in front of me was a stalled out vehicle! Whew good fing my reflexes work so well, and that Gatorade I had drank earlier had my adrenaline pumping cos I hit those brakes and we skidded to a perfect stop!!!!!!
I hollered, "everyone okay???? Momma Carol do you need to make a little bathroom break????" Nope...okay lets get this showboat back on the road!
Caliyfornia was just over the horizon with her big lights, and mountains, and oh so many highways, I drove through so much traffic out theres that I am now an expert driver and surely even Santa will not turn me down as his reindeer this year. I saw lots of beautiful rocks for my momma but Ms. Carol toles me we where on a tight schedule and the Doods had a special appearance on a television show in about 30 minutes.
So the rocks will haf to wait and I found out the DRIVER does not get to tag along on the show. I had to sit in the Ole Girl and check the brakes, air conditioning etc....I had to work, had to earn my keep, had to bite the bullet, had to WAIT! While the Doods got to do this...
Maybe I should have put it in my contract that I would be their bodyguard also!
