Opus to the Rescue!

Thank you to all of my friends who were worried about my "shark situation". A special thanks to my bestest friends, Karl and Ruis, who came to save me (again) in their helicopter. It turned out that the whole shark thing was a big a misunderstanding; she wasn't trying to eat me after all.

Since my human was going to be gone over the weekend, I decided to take a fishing trip. However I left my cell phone at home by accident. Sassy had been trying to call me as her Mom of the house (who happens to by my Grandma) is having an operation today. Sassy didn't want to leave her human's life in the hands of other humans and thought we had better be there to help. But since I didn't have my cell phone, she wasn't able to reach me.

So she sent her friend Fluffy, the great white shark, to give me the message. At first I thought Fluffy was going to eat me, but I soon realized that she needed to tell me to get to America. Normally I would have rushed to the States in my magic flying van, but it is in the shop for regularly scheduled maintenance (getting it ready for the big Halloween weekend). Fluffy was kind enough to give me lift.


We swam all across the Atlantic, arriving in New York city just this morning.



Fluffy dropped me off in the harbor, where we said our good byes and I thanked her for her help. Then I jumped on a greyhound bus and headed to Indiana.



Arriving just in time to scrub in with Sassy!

I will be spending a few days in Indiana, just to sure that the Mom of the house is well cared for as she recovers from her surgery. Do stop by Sassy's and leave her a kind message if you feel like doing so.

And thanks again for trying to save me! I love you all!

Hahahahahahaha - I can't believe it! First the MFV, now a great white shark. I shudder to imagine what kind of transport you might come up with next! That was brave, to ride in the mouth of a shark all across the Atlantic! But even braver to then take a greyhound bus, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHAHAHAHA

Well, we are sure glad to know you are safe. We would never have guessed Sassy is friends with a shark, but then Sassy is friends with everyone.

You and Sassy did a good job looking after her MotH in surgery. Let's hope Karl and his siblings take as good a care of her as she recuperates. They are very likely to make her laugh and pop her stitches.

Phew!!! A friendly shark - that's a relief! Let's all head to Indiana to visit the MOTH!

Sassy and Frank said...

The MOTH is doing pretty good considering, it think it all due to our overseeing all that is being done for her health care.

I am glad you met Fluffy and had an enjoyable trip across the big pond that seperates.
