My 1st Birthday is getting close!!!! lets have some Fun

Lets start off the month with a bang yes that's right, today Flat me is going into outer space, on NASA'S mission STS-133. Launch time 4.40p.m. EDT, last time I checked it was still going ahead!

So lets have some fun and games, I'd like you all to join in.  I have three things that I will be doing, The first is where to go on on my Birthday, that's down to all of you, I will be putting up a post of 5 places that I could visit, along with a voting panel you just vote on the one place you would like me to go, easy, that's where and what I will be doing on my Birthday.
27th Nov 

The post for this will be put up tomorrow.

 Would you believe it, that day falls on a Saturday so I thought instead of a Birthday Party I would like you to all join me on Saturday Steps. By sending me photos of you on steps, I have to say I owe this idea to

 A Tail of Two Cardis

 who has joined me by posting a photo under  the title of Saturdays Steps click on there blog link to see the post with the steps photo on.

Plus this Saturday just gone  Darby's Daily did Saturday Steps to.

You don't have to go up and down the steps just sit at the top or bottom, or in the middle, I know some of you don't do steps or maybe can't find any well I count steps as anything you have to lift your front paws up, like to get into your home or out the back door they all count. It will be open to all not just dogs, that means, moms, dads, friends, pets.
Anybody that would like to join me on my Birthday
   We'll call it

 George's Birthday Steps  

Full Details of this with be posted tomorrow

The third thing I will be doing is a pass the parcel (a give away) in fact two. Any comments I get from now the 1st till 21st of November will go into a Birthday Bucket, you don't have to follow me and anyone can leave a comment, I will only take your names once, all names will go into a bucket which will be taken to my two local pubs where John Land lord of The Crown will draw one and Phil  the Land lord of The Station will draw the other.

The Birthday Bucket starts from Now

If you do not want to take part that's fine, just put on your comment "pass the parcel" and I will not put your name in, you only have to do this once

I'd also like to take this moment unaccustomed as I am to public speaking to thank you all for following me, be it though the ones that make themselves public, the ones that comment, to the ones that just follow behind the PC.
Thank You for making this an enjoyable seven months of blogging.
"what's that mom" Oh she says I'm getting a bit deep just what is the woman on about!!!

Come on lets have some fun

So remember to come back and see The Full details of the THREE posts tomorrow.

1 Birthday Steps
2 My Birthday Outing
3 The Birthday Bucket

Sorry to keep you waiting, I thought it was the best way so we don't all get mixed up and confused

One more thing, its not just my birthday that getting close, Christmas is just around the corner!!!
 The Fiesty Three and Frankly Speaking are organizing a
 Christmas Card X-change

A Great Idea, thanks goes to the two of them for getting this off the ground.

For the full details please go to

Frankly Speaking


The Fiesty Three   

If you don't know either of them go give them a visit

So if you would like to take part I do hope you will
See Yea Tomorrow George xxxx



Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Oh, pawfect for me, George. Most of my pictures are taken on my back steps. I just have to go through and pick something. I don't think I can do the Christmas Card thing, though. Blog Mom can't seem to get those cards out to the family and friends who already send them. I don't think we can count on her for that one.

lotsa licks, Lola

Patrice said...

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

OMD OMD George this is gonna be sooooo much fun. THREE thingys to help you Celebrate your Birfday with... and you are GIVING pressies instead of GETTING pressies. You are such an innovative chap. I LOVE that the names will be pulled in your two favorite PUBS. I suppose though, Puddles will win.. since beers be one of her favoritest thingys in the whole world. I have scary steps in my house. I think that is what I'll show you the picture of.
I can NOT stand the wait... I want to know the 5 choices for places that you might visit. You rascal.
Love this idea. I really do.

jen said...

Wow George, you have a lot of fun things planned!

How Fun! You Mom is very creative:)

TwoSpecialWires said...

We've been waiting near Moma's feet ... pestering her to find out what's up your sleeve or under your paw or tucked by your tail or wherever you hide things. Now we know. And we'll be back! And we already KNOW what steps we're headin' for ... prob'ly tomorrow. Wanna see? Go here: It's close to our home ... but we save it for special occasions. And never again will we go there without thinking of you, George!

Happy Almost First Birthday! (You could come here, ya know?!)

We'll be back!
Jake and Fergi
