Sneaking off to the Main House at Skylands

Posted by Sharkey

The other day, I told you about how G.K. and I had to stay in the six-car garage apartment with Uncle Carlos up at Skylands.  Where I didn’t mind it all that much, it is a little hard getting used to that place when you are accustomed to staying in the splendor of the main house.  G.K. and I wandered over there to check things out.

You know, gals, we're staying in the six-car garage apartment, which is where Uncle Carlos stays when he comes to Skylands.   But, we would much rather stay here in the main house.

On second thought, things don't seem too inviting here.

What's with all the white sheets?

Do you really cover everything over when Martha is gone?

I guess the sheets help to protect the upholstery from the sun's fading rays and also keep any dust from settling.

You ladies do a great job taking care of Skylands and I guess the garage apartment will do for now.

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., I was getting a little worried because I didn't see your blog post until right now today-so glad you finally posted! I am sure you love going to Skylands anytime, but especially with Martha so you can stay in the beautiful house with her. Sure is fun to see Cheryl, Clair and Gretchen who keep the house in such ship shape while Martha is away. Love your beautiful photos again! Hope everyone has a delightful weekend! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+ PS-Hey Kirby, your mom is sure terrific to take such special care of that baby squirrel! Kudos to her! DDR

  • Doesn't look too shabby to me ;) ...hope all is well with you Francesca and the rest of the gang...have a great weekend everyone!

  • Hi Sharkey and GK, better late than never. I knew you two couldn't resist making your way over to the main house. Love how you two are buttering up the Skyland staff to let you two stay in main house. No fair, how could anyone resist such adorable pups? Have a great rest of the weekend. :smile:

  • You are all the sweetest pups :) Your posts re too cute!

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Now we know why you don’t stay in the main house; it looks spooky there. While our trail is parked, Daddy and Mommy puts black foam board on the windows to keep the sun light out. The inside looks almost new after five years. I don’t like the springtime. It has been raining for the past two days and it’s starting again today. I can’t even go outside to, well you know, without hearing thunder. You all know how I hate those storms. This morning I was outside settling down and kerr-pow, lighting struck about two miles away. I made it back to the house in record time. I’ll try again later today; don’t have to go now. And some people say that the thunder scares the **** out of them. I don’t see how.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hello All,
    Sharkey and G.K. you look marvelous at Skylands. It would seem everyone looks forward to your visits. Mom and I had a great weekend. Dad went ice fishing and is due back today. A bit of a wet snow falling this morning so I best get back to napping. Have a great Monday.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • I noticed that the author here is listed as Francesca...yet, Franny is not on this trip. It's Sharkey! Oops!! I wish all my stuff was covered with white sheets so that it wouldn't get dusty! LOL
    Love the adorable pics of all of you puppers!
