Photo Finish Friday - Old Friends!

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim, and it is great to be back blogging!  We really missed all of you - but one of the cool things about this whole kitchen re-do was seeing some of my old friends!  I had no idea they knew the guys working on our kitchen, but they made QUITE the team!  I thought I'd take Photo Finish Friday to show you some of those old friends!

The first guy I caught up with was Adrill!

"Adrill!!??!!  Is that you up there on the counter?!!?"

It was great to see him!  And to hear him again!  He had a lot to say - he got right to work the first day and really didn't rest until the whole thing was over and done with.  What a great work ethic.  He must be a Working Breed like me.

He had lots of other guys with him -- check this out!

I had such fun snoofing them!  I saw lots of familiar friends in there! Asaw... Ahammer... it was great!

"Oh, don't worry!  I know to be careful around all these guys!"

One of the bipeds from the crew was standing right there, so I assured him I'd be real careful with everything.  Safety first! as we say around Ao4 Headquarters!

"Oooh, anything interesting in here?!?"

Not that I'd get into the trash.  Puh-lease.  I was just ... checking it out.  Really.  Moving right along...

Outside, I saw yet another friend also named Asaw!!!

I didn't know Asaw worked outside!  Mom said he was helping with the tile work and there was lots of water involved; it was warm out, so it's nice that he got to splash around a bit!

I thought it was pretty cool seeing two old friends both named Asaw, don't you?

Dave and I got to eat lunch out on the deck while everyone was here.  It was pretty nice.  Mom said we were dining alfresco, but I never saw anyone named Al so I have no idea what she was talking about.  Anyway, right after lunch one day, Dave looked into the kitchen ...

"What the ... Asaw?!?  Zim!  You aren't going to believe who else is in there!!!"

Can you imagine THREE friends with the same name?!?  And all of them showing up to help with the remodel!?!  How crazy is that!??!

More pix of the remodel to come, as Mom downloads and processes them!  I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my old friends!

Play bows,


  1. WOAH! You know a lot of guys with the same name!!!

    I'm really proud of all your snoopervising efforts. Can't wait to see the finished product.


  2. Holy cow, that's a lot of friends with the same name! Do they all know each other, or did they meet for the first time at your renovation? Hey, maybe they're friends for life now thanks to you! What a great legacy to leave. :)

  3. Looks like the kitchen is coming along nice. I'm glad you "saw" so many old friends.


  4. wow - you guys seemed to take that whole project in stride (must be a working dog thing). we had some work done around here by our grandpa and the noise was VERY scary (but that asaw guy was here too....weird)

  5. Oh my gosh....we have those guys here all the time. They LIVE here in my Dad's van! Bryn doesn't like them cause they make noise and that makes her nervous but anything my Dad does, he does it with me nearby. Love that Dad....

    Can't wait to see what the Asaws did to your Mom's kitchen!


  6. kinda wondered how Re Model was doing in all this..............? okay I hope. After all it all seems to have been "all about him".... ;0D

  7. and I am so so looking forward to Re Model's pics.........

  8. How cool that all your friends came over to help get your kitchen done! We hope they worked fast so your mom can make you more treats in her new kitchen!

  9. I only have one asaw friend and I only see him in the summer after the wind blows down a tree or if we are getting firewood.

    I don't really care for asaw but at least now, thanks to you, I know what his name is.

  10. You have a lot of cool friends, AND with the same name! WOW. I like ASAW, we have a couple around here. And you know what? ASAW helps me with sticks and lumber tid bits. Just cuts them off and they fall and I carry them away.

  11. Zim... you will not believe this, butt it is TRUE fur REAL... ADRILL's TWIN BROTHER was at my house just a few days ago.

    Wow.. you REALLY got to have some super fun with all your new furends and BOY HOWDY did they ever do some super stuffs at your house.

    My mom used to play around with ASAW... butt NOW she is not allowed to. My Dad says so!!!

  12. Hey, those same friends live in our workshop! What a small world, huh!
    Stay on top of things, Dave and Zim!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  13. yoW! that is pretty cool Zim, that your remodel project was also a reunion of friends! our mom has been needing to hang some stuff on the wall...no wonder she couldn't find Adrill or Ahammer ;)

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

  14. We can't wait to see the finished kitchen.

    The silvers and more

  15. Hi, Zim!
    Sure it was great to see your old friends there, right?
    Lots of Asaws!
    I can see you are doing a super duper supervising job!
    Kisses and hugs

  16. What nifty friends! We would bark hello at them - over and over again! Heehee!

    *kissey face*
    -Fiona and Abby the Hippobottomus

  17. wow! There's a LOT going on at your place! You must be so busy supervising… Can't wait to see the results! :-)

    Honey the Great Dane

  18. Wow! You guys are great snoopervisors!!
    Here's hoping all goes well and superb!


  19. So many old friends! What fun times. I am sure that you are helping things go smoothly. Can't wait to see the finish.


  20. Maybe they should be named Asaw, Bsaw and Csaw to avoid any confusion.
