Otis and Gus-Gus Show – February 18th 2019

Hello good people Gus-Gus here.  I’m sorry if you were hoping for Otis but he sleeps far too much to maintain any sort of communication, let alone a blog. As you can see he has gone 5 months without writing.  In his defense he has started several good ones but he stops foIMG_20190206_131508_746r a nap and when he goes to start again he could not remember where he was going with it.  Since Otis only talks about himself I think it’s important to share a little of the things I have been ease dropping from mom and dad. Like the things we got going here at the Tibbetts House such as the room rate changes, our big March sale (Shhh, the announcement is coming out on the 22nd), and the most recent version of dog food mom made us.

Room Rate Changes

First, I want to bring up the room rate changes, since our guests is my favorite part, well next to eating. After mom and dad had a big discussion it was decided that we need to have more options.  So we are putting a base rate that includes basic amenities and a Continental breakfast.  This allows guest the flexibility to try some of the awesome food in the local area like the Peacock bakery, dad always lets me taste their awesome weekly breads, and the 9th St Cafe.  If our guest would still like to enjoy a home cooked breakfast they can pay an additional $10 per person per night.  Now $10 is an amazing deal for the amount of food mom makes. We are talking french toast roll-ups, scrambled eggs, fruit (I like the apples), and sausage/bacon (I also love the bacon).  Either way we are hoping to get more guest to come visit and enjoy our fun little town.

Spring Cleaning Sale

IMG_20190211_154341Next, I would like to leak some info about dads “Spring Cleaning Sale.” I say leak cause mom has it on the calendar to post about it on the 22nd and they have not told more than 1 or 2 people that I know of.  So what’s the big deal with the sale? Well dad has accumulated so many books while mom was away that he needs to get some space made for some other things he would like to work on. So all used books will be 25 cents for the month of March.  Yep, he said the whole month of March.  So make some plans to come visit me and Otis next month and get some good reading books, or like mom is starting to do get some good books for some crafts.  She made this awesome box out of a book, just ask here about it.

Our Dog Food

Finally I must tell you about the new recipe of dog food mom has been making us.

Ingredients – 1 lbs beef chuck or lean beef, 1 lbs ground chicken, 4 eggs, 1 can pureed pumpkin, 1 12-oz  bag of mixed broccoli; cauliflower; and carrots,  1 Cup cottage cheese, 1/4 Cup peanut powder (PB2).

Mom mixes everything together in a large bowl, I can always smell it. She preheats the oven to 350. then once it’s good and mixed she pours it into a casserole dish and spreads it out evenly.  She then puts it in the oven for 45 – 50 min.  This is the longest 45 minutes of my life as it smells so good.  Then she takes it out and lets it cool which feels like forever and I try to give her hugs to let her know that I don’t mind it being hot and I’m also very grateful for it.  After it cools and it is determined to be dinner time she scoops 1/2 cup into me and Otis’s bowls.  It is super yummy.

Next week I’d like to tell you about our up coming book club that I’m super excited for cause that means you all come to visit. Then I will talk about me and Otis’ favorite walking path through Highland.  Finally since I love food so much I’m going to talk about some of my favorite breakfasts.  I hope you enjoy hearing from me.  If you have suggestions please let me know in the comments.  For now I hope you stay warm, I’m going to find a good blanket to curl up under.
