Otis and Gus-Gus Show – 24 March 2019

Hello people, Gus-Gus here again finally. Mom got this new toy called a cricut and she has not been sharing her computer with us. So I had to explain to her the importance of what I was doing here. I’m trying to keep people informed on what we have going on, and we got a lot going on. To start with there is the Book club and what book we chose to go with.  Then there is the changes to the third room of the book store. Oh and the Murder mystery dinners that mom and dad are starting.

The Book Club

Well the book club did not have as many people show up as I had hoped. We had one person so mom and I sat and discussed different books with her.  Then we picked The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. Dad says this is classic Sci-fi, I don’t care I’m enjoying mom reading it to me. We are just getting into and it’s very exciting and interesting.  I’m not sure what some of the creatures are, mom says they are just different aliens, I still don’t know what that is. But what they say is still very funny. I’m hoping more people come to the next book club meeting I want to hear what they thought of the book.

The third room of the bookstore

We are moving things around in the house. The couch that has been with us for a very long time and was sitting in the third room of the bookstore has been moved out. Dad says he can now pull out the last of the overstocked books he has on hand.  He also says once the book sale this month is over they are going to change that room into a consignment shop. It will have a lot of moms crafts that she has been working on with that cricut thing.

There will also be some of dad’s re-purposed wood signs. I know there were other things they mentioned but so many people come in the bookstore these days I have trouble listening and greeting people.

Murder Mystery Dinner

Okay so this is super cool.  Mom and dad did a dry run with some close friends to help figure out cost, flow of events, and meal options.  All the people came dressed up and had a character to play with a book that told them things about the character.  There was 4 rounds of food. I know I got some chips from the first round, mom says she is going to change that round.

I did not get any of the green stuff from the second round. But some of the rice from the third round made it to me. And mom dropped some raisin she tried to get to before me but I’m super fast. They was all laughing and having a good time.  Mom says she will start selling tickets on Wednesday for the next one which will be April 13th. I can’t wait to see the new costume’s and the food changes.

Well that’s all the new stuff we got going on here.  Next week I’ll let you know if dad made his goal to sale 1,000 books in March, he is almost to 800 so it’s getting close. I’m also going to get mom’s grapefruit cake recipe. Until next week I hope to see you in the book shop.
