Happy Birthday Basil ~ Wing Commander Basil's 18th Birthday & 2nd Birthday at The Bridge Plus Smooch's 9th Birthday And Epic Give-Away

It's Pawty Time  @BionicBasil® 2019


Dudes and dudettes, IRL [in real life] it would have been my 18th birthday here in the earth realm today and so that makes it my 2nd Birthday at The Rainbow Bridge, and there have been quite a few tears shed again offur whether we should have a pawty or not but I said, "it's my fluffing birthday and I want a pawty with my furiends!" So it was decided, then as we were all really sad about Uncle John's passing, Smooch's pawty got put on hold, so today we're having a joint pawty, are mew ready?


Earlier in the day...

We got all paws on deck decorating the garden, which was snoopervised by our lovely Pandora...

Then Smooch decided to join me under the gazebo... where we had a deep and meaningful discussion on whether we needed any more red balloons or more blue balloons, which thoroughly wore us out and then we needed to another take a quick nap!

Though a short while later, it all started to come together...

Then we got a couple of vintage vehicles out of storage from level 12 in the bunker, and next to arrive was the atlas crane sent by the P.A.'s brother fur bungee jumping.  It hadn't been parked fur more than a minute when Smooch just had to get all offur it, what a total heathen and Fudge couldn't wait fur his turn! [OMC, I can see this is going to get rapidly out of control! MOL]

Pandora really loved the vintage car and got dressed appropriately fur a sedate drive around Mewton-Clawson with our guests when they arrive shortly.  So anypurrdy that wants to go 'Driving with Miss Dora'  do shout up, as I think she'll be quite in demand this evening!

Plus, fantastic news; Angels Humphrey, Snowie and Posie turned up just as we'd got set up on the lawn, ready to pawty hard and get their wilds on.

The lights came on as it got darker just as our fab furiends began to arrive from all offur the wurld...

Doesn't it look purretty?

So pawesome pals grab a hat, we've already got ours! MOL

Get some cake!
The Nip Bar is OPEN!
Have a drink! 
Who wants to go Tank Driving?


Don't panic guys, I've not touched a drop of Smooch's lethal Mindbender nip cocktail, so I'll be your designated tank driver tonight, all-a-board fur oodles and oodles of fun, and don't tell the P.A. but we might go blow some stuff up, just because we can! MOL 

Also we're offuring a supurr tour of our secret bunker, though we did start pawtying in there earlier aftur our epic angel fursibs arrived, sorry about the mess - OOPS - if mew're feeling a bit peckish Humphrey can whip mew something up in his lab, yes, it doubles up as his purrsonal kitchen when he pops in to visit and he invented an A.I. replicator that can make anything mew want.

 So fur all those guests who would like oodles of bacon with their bacon butties, bacon pies and bacon burgers mew are definitely in the right place, just put your paw in the air so he can fulfil that bacon, with bacon, with extra bacon on the side with bacon sprinkles on top order just fur mew!

Oh just a quick warning during the tour, if mew feel an uncontrollable urge to push any RED BUTTONS that are clearly marked DO NOT PUSH - purrlease heed the warning as we don't want the dragon to escape again, or anything else fur that matter! MOL

And don't wurry about the Kraken either, K.D. aka Kraken-Dude is on level 8 with Horice and all the creatures from the alternate dimension in the Bio-sphere, so unfortunately we'll be missing out on that level due to health and safety protocols as K.D.'s lessons in 'A Krakens Guide To Adapting To The 21st Century' are still going a wee bit sloooooooow and he hasn't quite grasped that he can't just randomly eat whateffur and wheneffur he feels like it. 
Help yourselves to nibbles!
Get some pudding!

Well, as all our pawesome regulars know, our giveaways are epically epic and we like to surprise mew with a goodie bag filled with delightful things fur mew and your hooman, so it's a win win fur effuryone. 

[**Unless mew're in one of those countries that aren't allowed to join in. Mew know who mew are!]

Luffs mew all loads

  25. And just for good measure...those red button things are a thiung at this least theyt were whgen the unfurbor's were wee ones...the older one esp. Her saw a red button on a big metal box, like the size of a washing machine, and re tugged hims self off from petcretary's hand and said 'look mommy what's that?'~ and pushed the cheerful red button before *she* could get there to stop him...and he had just turned off the computer system to the whole business (A car dealership and repair shop), OMC! (Guess what he does for a living...he's a computer engineer!! LOL!)

    Pawrty on Angel Basil! Such fun here, I, Pipo, just had to come back to see how it was going:)
