My Job Interview/Proposal

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim.  As I mentioned yesterday, I came up with a great idea for a Summer job.  For the past few weeks, I've seen this really cool trolley parked over by the Giant's Castle.  I was curious about it so I did a little research and learned that you can rent it out by the hour.  Hmm...  I asked Mom to take me over to where it is so I could see if the trolley would fit into my Summer job plans.

Here I am, checking it out:

"Easy enough to climb aboard!"

Let me back up a bit and tell you my plan...

My idea is to rent out the trolley and give tours of the Kansas Ocean!!!  Seriously!!!  It's becoming quite the hot spot these days, so can't you just picture me going over the transoceanic bridge on the trolley, then cruising along the boardwalk?  The tourists would go crazy for something like that, don't you think?

We could have a postcard made ...

Your Kansas Ocean Tour Guide - Zim!

...made using that shot (like we did with another one!) and sell it in the gift shops lining the boardwalk!

I really think I'm on to something here!

"All aboard for the Kansas Ocean!"

Hmm.  No takers yet.

"Ha roo?"

OK.  I can wait.  The tourists will be lining up in no time.

I sure hope this pans out!  It could be a REALLY fun Summer!

Play bows,


  1. I just knew your summer job had something to do with a motorized vehicle. I think that sounds like a great plan and I hope you get some takers soon.

    Maybe they know woo don't have a driver's permit... woo!

  3. it is an inspired plan. This heat is swallowing everybody's energy and the beach will be a great relief for everyone:)

  4. We are packing up and heading your way - hopefully we will make it for your first tour!


  5. That does sound like fun! Momma and I will make a trip out to see you soon, 'kay?

  6. You're perfect for the job, Zim! Sign us up for the Kansas Ocean Tour! Do you serve ice cream on the trolley?

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  7. Zim, that's a brilliant idea! You're going to sell out those tours fast! We wish we could go on one of your tours to the Kansas Ocean!

  8. we love your idea, Zim! we'd sure enjoy a tour! maybe if we leave now, we can make it there before the end of summer...

  9. Zim, that is an incredible idea. How much are you going to charge, how often will you run a day, have you thought about serving snacks or even a dinner menue ride.

    I think converting it to a dinner car and chargine $50 bucks a person is a real money maker.

    Hey, I could be one of your servers, or when you get to the ocean, you could offer pick nicking.

    OK Bert, enough......

  10. Once the tourists line up, you are going to make some green papers. Looks like a great summer job

  11. Zim... I think this is a very VERY exciting Venture. Memorial Day kicks off the big summer season and you are right there READY TO MAKE some MAJOR Green Papers!! BRILLIANT Idea.

  12. I would like one ticket please. Are humans allowed?


  13. Hi Zimmy! Mom and I wanted to stop by and say hi. We have been missing you guys A LOT!!!! Things are kinda crazy here for us right now and we aren't able to do any blogging but we've been missing our furiends so much we thought we'd take a few minutes to drop by and visit. I think that is the perfect job for you!

    Love and hugs,

  14. Ummm.....can we bring Maui? She wears a harness and is such a good kitkat. Mom and Dad want to come along too and then there are the treasures so I guess we'll need 9 tickets. Can you fit all of us? We LUV the ocean!

  15. Wow Zim, that looks like a pawesome job! We just know you will do a GREAT job!


  16. Zim!
    You had a super duper idea!
    Those tours will be grrreat!
    Kisses and hugs

  17. That's a great idea. I would buy a ticket.

  18. Maybe you need to rename it the ZIM Trolley? That's a zippier name that should be easier to market. Is Dave going to drive while you do the tour talking? Do you have a local paper or tv station that might do a feature piece on your new enterprise, for some free publicity? If we didn't live 1500 miles away, we'd be there in a flash. Oh! How about letting the trolley double as a pet party bus? You could sponsor pet birthday parties at the Kansas Ocean.

  19. Wow!! That's really awesome Zimmie!!
    Wish i could be there to witness it!


  20. My mum says she is buying her plane ticket today to come on the trolley with you!
