MOMMY AND MARKIE WANTED TO SEE THE BOOK OF KELLS AT TRINITY COLLEGE.

MOMMY SAID IT’S HAND-DONE BOOK OF THE GOSPELS AND IT DATES BACK TO 800 AD…..ANDRE THINKS THATS OLD. MOMMY SAID TRINITY COLLEGE IS THE OLDEST UNIVERSITY IN DUBLIN.

MOMMY AND MARKIE WENT INTO THE LONG ROOM – IT HAS THE OLDEST HARP IN IRELAND AND 200,000 BOOKS. ANDRE THINKS THAT’S A LOT OF BOOKS.

THEN EVERYBODY HAD TO RACE BACK TO THE AIRPORT TO CATCH THE PLANE. MOMMY AND MARKIE SPLIT A CAB WITH ANOTHER DUBLIN GIRL. THE TAXI DRIVER TOLD ANDRE THAT WE PASSED A PUB WHERE THE IRELAND LEADER TOOK PRESIDENT CLINTON FOR HIS LAST PINT IN IRELAND.

WHY DOES MARKIE GET A PASSPORT AND NOT ANDRE?

dublin 161.jpg
ANDRE WANTS A PASSPORT. ANDRE PROBABLY HAS MORE TRAVELING STAMPS THAN OTHER BEARS BACK HOME. ANDRE THINKS IT’S NOT FAIR MARKIE HAS A PASSPORT.

    I’d say that Louie is a slow reader … but that’s not nice … oops! Andre should also carry a de-thorned rose tomorrow for good luck for the Bears back home. :)-Grrrah!

  2. RDV Says:

    Just wondering why Andre is always on the go and not Louie. It seems that Louie is smarter than the “other one’. Is he a bit spoiled and stubborn?

  3. kris Says:

    Louie just got back from Greenwich – he also went to Prague. It was about time Andre got to go on another plane ride.

    And Louie’s not a slow reader. He just likes to read the entire book. That’s just how he is – and Andre doesn’t have the patience to read a book on his own.

  4. Patri Says:

    Andre rarely goes on trips. I believe this is the first trip that Andre was allowed to accompany his mommy on since Italy. He might be spoiled, but that is ok my mommy spoils me too. Stuffed animals have hearts and feelings too. I need a drink, I miss Andre.

    XOXOXO,
    Patri

    Heh – ‘Andre doesn’t have the patience to read a book on his own.’ – Andre has ADD, I wonder where he gets *that from. Maybe he doesn’t want to read an entire book on his own because he likes spending quality time with his mom and having her do the reading. Golden Bears tend to be clever like that … I think he gets the stubborn and spoiled trait from his mom, too. Nothing against Louie though … ‘that’s just how he is’ hahaha -Hey, waitaminute – Louie still looks like he’s on the same page as when you left!

    Hello Kitty: !!! … #$@! !!!”

    Sara says: She’s a bit riled up right now. Not sure what she’s miming.

    Hello Kitty: !!!

    Sara says: But I think it has to do with calling Andre a Golden Bear and clever.

  7. Patri Says:

    Sara & Hello Kitty:

    The truth of the matter is that Andre is very adroit, but that doesn’t mean Louie is not. That just means that True Blue thought to speak his mind first. We all know that Golden Bears are clever and good looking. Andre can’t help but be the wonderful bear that he is, and just remember that Andre has stiff competition with the other Golden Bears surrounding him. *Andre’s Mommy, Markie, Jedi Wes, and Sugar Ray to name a few.*

    XOXOXO,
    Patri *Hello Kitty*

    GO CAL BEAT SOUTHERN MISS!!!

  8. True Blue Says:

    for Andre … He probably doesn’t understand how Cal got shafted by computers and a stupid formula. I, too, wave my paw in angry indignation and simmering frustration … 46 years and counting …

  9. RDV Says:

    Very sad, the Bears (not Louie/Andre of course) got seriously snubbed by the BCS. I can’t believe that football can be like figure skating, very subjective. No matter how many double axels or triple lutzes, you have, or if you are not very pretty, or if you are not well liked by the judges you are not any good. (Remember this? Andre’s mom ) I thought for a game like this, a Win is Win. BCS should make some changes, I guess this is happening every year.

  10. Faith Says:

    CAL WAS ROBBED!!! BCS equals as a friend tells me stands for Basic Computer S*)t, and that there is no other way to describe it. Totally jacked up, that computers count 33% of the vote. For one, 33, 33, and 33 don’t even equal 100. Two, computer chips and programs can’t see the players on the field. (COMPUTERS COULDN’T SEE THE BLIND ZEBRAS THAT DO NOT KNOW WHAT CLIPPING, ROUGHING THE PASSER, OFF-SIDES and many other things, and the computers definitely didn’t hear the one sided broadcast from ESPN about how wonderful Southern Miss is) You know Arrington gets no credit, nor does Rodgers. Read their stats, and tell me they don’t deserve respect. I can’t wait until they review the BCS next year, and maybe they will completely do away with the ancient and outdated system. This happens to someone every year, and it just sucks that it happened to Cal this year.
