Hello Everyone--it's me Wimsey letting you know that this week there will no proper blog post. Owing to some fall friskiness I have pulled a rear hind leg and the vet has ordered strict couch and furniture rest. My human Maria with whom I live up 5 exciting flights of stairs (generally she's the one with the pulled limbs as I do tend to get enthusiastic on the 5 exciting flights down) has sent me over to her friend Elizabeth to recuperate. Elizabeth lives up 14 boring flights in an elevator building but there is always the compensatory possibility of sliming the elevator's interior and occupants. Elizabeth's neighbors think she hangs onto my flews because I might bite somebody (which enhances my macho reputation around the building), but the elevator attendants, who have had a first hand taste of the extensive drool that I hoard in my flews, know better.
Sadly, I am not a very good patient as in spite of having a gamy leg I still tow furiously in the opposite direction to the one in which Elizabeth wants to go and object strenuously to the vet mandated truncated nature of the proceedings--one hour is a short walk for me and anything that is even less than that is a heinous travesty to which I quite naturally object.
And I once again have induced sleep deprivation psychosis in Elizabeth via the traditional houndly routes of loud ear flapping in the middle of the night, regular bed checks and vigorous rearrangment of my bedding, all of which has been very satisfying (and excellent for the gin companies). But better yet, it turns out that Maria can't sleep either--apparently the unnatural silence unnerves her. It is the true essence of the Hound to take any situation and turn it to one's advantage by being maximally disruptive to the lives of one's humans.
Anyway, before I leave you for this evening's invalid loungings I do want to say that anyone who lives in the Washington D.C. area should make note of the following: (and check out their new logo--www.baying-hound.com--look like anyone you know?)
What's Brewing at Baying Hound Aleworks?
Baying Hound will be attending the Takoma Park Beer Festival.Join your friends and neighbors for Takoma Park’s unique “Nuclear Free Beerfest.” The Beerfest will feature the best beer from local microbreweries, great food from area restaurants, and fantastic local music. The Beerfest will take place on Saturday, October 16, 4–7 p.m. at the Historic Cady Lee Mansion at 7064 Eastern Ave, NW, D.C. [the corner of Piney Branch Road and Eastern Avenue] only two blocks from the Takoma Metro station. Tickets are $35 (of which $25 is a tax deductible contribution to the Foundation to support the Community Grants Program). Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance at Now and Then (6927 Laurel Ave., Takoma Park) or at Olive Lounge (7006 Carroll Ave. Takoma Park).
Probably right about now my humans could use a case of Baying Hound IPA.
Until next week (hopefully)
Wimsey, even more annoying when injured!
