Bussing It

Gas prices... crazy, huh? Mama has been complaining a lot about how much it costs to get back and forth to her work. My answer - beautiful in it's simplicity - was that she just shouldn't go to work anymore, and spend her entire days entertaining me. Alas, from what I understand no one will pay her unless she goes in to work, so as I do like to eat I suppose she has to go.

So she's made some changes. Rather than taking her car to work everyday she is taking the bus. Being a good boy, I wanted to walk her to the bus stop in the morning, in case there are any hooligans or ruffians - Nobody messes with my mama!!! - so we all walked to the bus stop... and we waited.

And waited.

Uh wait... what's that? Is that the bus, huh mama?

I think I see it coming... aw shucks, it's going to take mama away for the day again. Ah well, I know she's out bringing home the bacon (literally and figuratively) so it's ok with me.

Very different from the Bogie-mobile.

BYE MAMA - have as good of a day as you can without me!!!

We walk D to the train station and wave her off. We've been to the bus stop too. It's fun isn't it Bogie.

That is so wonderful that you get to walk your mum to the bus stop! Your the greatest. Your mum looks all pretty and professional going to work..she must really love you to work for the bacon. My mum is having to carpool with a friend cuz of the gas prices.

Bogart, what a gentleman you are escorting your Mum to the bus stop.

Have a good weekend.

Man! I've missed you, buddy!

I think it's great you walk your mama to the bus stop. You guys are getting greener by the day living in Portland. I hope your mama is able to rest or get some good reading or people watching in while riding to work.

My girl, sadly, has to drive herself. Since GooberStan is close to NOWHERE, she has the dreaded commute. Maybe we could find her a job in Portland and transplant GooberStan to the Oregon coast. Whatdya think?

We're going to catch up on all you've been doing. Can't wait to see what you've been getting into.

Goober love,

I bet everybody on the bus was envious to see what a handsome devil your mama has. She coordinated her outfit to match you! You two look so nice together.

Do you think they will let you on the bus? You can be the live entertainment for the hoomans!!!
Seriously, I think you need to put a "working dog" vest on and head to work with your momma. I just don't know how she get's through her days without YOU!!!
