Last night I think the people behind my house were having a party in their yard.
And they didn’t invite me.
It didn’t sound like a big party – just a few people.
But they were playing musical instruments and I really thought I should be part of that.
I heard the sound of a guitar every once in awhile.
That didn’t really bother me.
My person has a guitar.
It’s kind of collecting dust right now but I guess if I really wanted to play it I could tear open the case and see what kind of sounds I could make.
But there was another instrument that really attracted my attention.
It’s not one that my person has – well, she sort of has it, but not really.
And it’s something I’ve always wanted to play.
I mean, who wouldn’t want to play an instrument that was named after them.
Maybe my neighbors will hear something and invite me over next time they play the bongos.

Now, if I had a party, I would love to have Bongo play the bongos and would give him lots of fish too for it!!!

Marina, I’ll play the bongos for you anytime.
November 19, 2013 at 11:55 am
Play Bongo Play!

I’m on it Ku. Maybe I could beat the bongos to one of your haikus.

Come on let’s Pawty, Bongo…shall I dance, or meowwww? Pawkiss 🙂

Little Binky, since I’m playing the bongos I think dancing would be appropriate. Woo woo!

They better invite you next time. You would fit right in
November 19, 2013 at 5:10 pm
Lily, I might have to invite myself. Maybe I could enlarge the hole in the fence between our yards.

Four paws’ four bongo drums – Make this happen, B. You can do a concert!
Love and licks,
November 19, 2013 at 5:12 pm
Cupcake, I could have my own party – and you’re invited!
November 19, 2013 at 6:48 pm

November 20, 2013 at 1:20 am
ah that was only a practise party. with the riff-raff…next time they will invite the really important people like you and me…then you can take you very own Bongo drums bonged at by a really Bongo
November 20, 2013 at 11:51 am
Patrecia, if they don’t invite me I’ll have my own Bongo party – and you’re definitely invited.
November 20, 2013 at 4:44 am
OO you so should!!
November 20, 2013 at 11:52 am
Dalton, it wouldn’t be a party if they didn’t have Bongo playing the bongos.

What a lovely instrument it is, Bongo! The instrument is mostly for latin music, isn’t it? How cheerful! 🙂 *humming to myself*
November 20, 2013 at 11:56 am
Kevin, you made my person curious so she looked up some information on bongo drums and found out they originated in Cuba – so yes, they are mostly for latin music. I think I’ll go work on my latin drumming now.

Since you have four paws, you could make up a whole orchestra with a guitar and a bongo!!
November 20, 2013 at 11:57 am
Kolytyi, what an idea! I can do more music than people can. Woo woo!
November 21, 2013 at 12:22 pm
I just assumed you got your name because you were a world renown bongo beater.
November 21, 2013 at 2:52 pm
Lola, I think those drums were named after me. I mean, who wouldn’t want to name their drums after me.
November 21, 2013 at 11:45 pm
We are sure you would be great at that instrument 🙂
November 22, 2013 at 8:31 pm
Lexie and Mica, I’ve got to be a natural at it. Bring the bongos on!
November 25, 2013 at 9:40 am
That is cool! They named Bongo DRums after you! They named Ginger Snap cookies after me! We are two lucky dogs! However, nothing will make me happy till I have that thousand foot statue of me when I am world Dictator!

Ginger, anyone who can get a cookie named after her is definitely in line for a thousand foot statue.
