Since Mother Nature has given us a reprieve and let Mr. Sunshine out this weekend, on Saturday I made sure to get the old parents out for a drive. We spent the day antiquing at Downtown Pomona.
You can find a lot of great stuff here. The store's on this street were once all painted as the scene for Cat in the Hat (Dr Seuss). This is why this store is still bright green. although through the years the paint has worn off, it was pretty cool after the movie filmed to know this was "IT!"
In the picture above, look at the building. How many of your parents remember Kress? My mom does. She said she remembers going there as a kid!
It was a bit chilly out, but momma thinks of everything! I in my pink stroller with my favorite furry red blanket just kept me very warm! Not to say the least for her - she was cold - but then again, she is always complaining of being cold.
We went into the various stores looking at toy's. Dad bought mom another snoopy toy. It is sooo cute.I forgot to take a picture of it before mom took it to her office. I love it when the attention is focused on moi!!! I love it! At one of my favorite stores, the nice ladies there told mom to give me a teaspoon of olive oil each day to help my spine. She said she had neck surgery and saw on Dr. Oz (pooie) that a teaspoon a day helps even for the four legged hooman's such as us. Mom said she would do some research and google it Do any of your mom's know this? Perhaps if they do, they can share some info with my mom.
Dad found another Superman glass. He keeps buying them and mom keeps dropping them!
On Sunday, we woke up bright and early! Dad took mom to eat at one of their favorite breakfast establishments in our very own Old Town Orange. I was soo excited when they said I was going along! That meant another outting for me too!
Old town Orange is a nice cozy little town filled with the local's walking around (especially the young one's that go to Chapman University).
Our town is also tourist town. And because it is, we don't go there as often as we like. It's busy all year long, as we are a few miles from both Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm. Us local's call it "the circle" as it litterally goes in a round circle.
For a minute there, I was able to get out of my stroller to do my business (of course mom wouldn't forget that!)
I inspected the peemail along the way. Lot's of different mail all around.
I even managed to take a few picture's of other poofer's walking their human's as well. I couldn't find any other's in strollers.
Some of them chuckled as they saw me.... other's barked at me and told me I should be walking and not be a spoiled princess!
I just wanted to clobber him over the noggin - couldn't he see I am sick and unable to walk much - Doctor's orders! Duh!!!!!! If I had my way, I would be running all over the place! I feel great thanks to those little white things mom wraps inthe kraft cheese! Bol!
We even saw this really cool bike too! I thought mom's bike was the coolest, but this one is the bestest I ever saw! It is so girlie!!
I got out of the stroller again and walked a teensie bit more. I got to smell some new smells.
I was a bit upset because our outting was coming to an end. I wanted to stay out in the sun a bit longer. But mom had to go somewhere very important today and I couldn't go.
Oh well till the next outting.... Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!
On a sidenote:
Speaking of Kraft cheese, or umm is it just in my head (my thought only), I just have got to mention the Sunday posting over at Martha & Bailey's regarding the letter to MangoMonster 2010 - I must say Mom could not stop BOL!! She was practically rolling all over the floor! Hey! What's wrong with liking Kraft cheese anyway! I LOVE IT!!!!! She laughed so hard she was crying as she was watching me post a comment. I was a tad bit worried about her (as I rolled my paw in a circle closest to my head implying koo-koo!).
