A News Story …

… of a kind we’ve seen before, but it gives us a chance to post this pic. Also, we like the name of the restaurant – Cochon Volant.

    The restaurant name translates to Flying Pig.

    Good morning all.

    Very nice article. Have never heard of that restaurant, but they obviously need to have more informed employees. The dog is very handsome.

    Regarding the vacuum discussion last night, I was also looking at the Dysum, but then I ran across a super sale on an Oreck. Couldn’t pass up buying one at the offered price, so that is what I use. I love it, except for one small problem. Long dog hair (Maggie) gets wrapped around the roller bar and has to be cut off with scissors periodically.

    Off for our morning walk. Have a great morning all.

    Good morning Bee and Barb and all to come. I am about to try a relaxation meditation I found on YouTube for the first time. Hopefully I don’t get so relaxed I miss day camp.

    Later taters

    MP & LLM – amen, wahoo and hallelujah! Well written, and certainly the truth. Thank you!
    As to that restaurant, bet they thought dogs would be allowed when pigs fly. Snort.
    Wose – we love your movie list. We could hang out for sure. We’ll bring the popcorn.

    Kat! Thanks for the book recommendation! The Cindy Ross book, Scraping Heaven, looks to be just the book to get my book group back on the trail! The name alone makes me want to start reading it right away! And I see the part about Yellowstone and the Tetons and I get just greedy! Must read.

    Let me know what you think, ALR.

    Spence: You are adding words to your French vocabulary list. Mine too, thanks for the translation, B.

    Crutches!
    Kat: What have you done?

    Can’t get Mpop’s and Loulou’s Mom’s link to open – will try later.

    Macy’s Mom: “You are getting verrry sleepy”. Wait! Not that tape!

    OH mom, get better soon! ALR, please keep track of these books for mom. She hasn’t read since the fire and misses the books and the time.

    Good Afternoon, All!! Mom was super busy and didn’t get on the computer at all this weekend. She just caught up during lunch.

    Loved the 911 story, MP&LL’s Mom. Cannot imagine how the people kept their cool climbing down all those stairs.

    Don’t know if I let y’all know or not, but Mom got the approval for the vacation time the FIRST WEEK IN MARCH! So she and her sister are heading North to Alaska for the start of the last great race. I keep telling her she needs to email C.Hobbit and find out if there are still accommodations at the Hobbit Hotel!
    She gives procrastination new meaning. She will have a cat sitter come in daily to take care of us, but what will she do with that dog??? He’s going to freak if she boards him. She is hoping the neighbor will keep him for the week. Howie really likes him and he can take him home for short stays if he gets stressed. I’m sure she will figure out something.

    Maggie, tell your Mom Happy Belated Birthday!! So sorry I missed it but I haven’t mastered turning on the ipad by myself.

    I am excited for your mom Boobear. And I am sure Hobbit always has an open home and open arms for her guests.

    Did some yard work, now a late lunch and then time to pick up Lyla and Jack.

    MPop’s & Loulou’s Mom: I finally opened the link at 10:28. Good stuff!

    The man who lives in this house has hired a young lad to come and move some dirt piles this afternoon. There go my arm exercises.

  15. BooBear
    2:47 pm on September 14th, 2015

    Dawson, Mom says holding a book and turning pages is good arm exercise.

    Boo Bear: I don’t know if anyone has told you, but the Hobbit Hotel is 5 star. You will not want to leave!

    Part I of moving Zoe to our compound here is complete! She has nearly everything that she wants out of the Cummington house. The movers were fantastic – strong, young, boundless energy. My older son’s girlfriend also was helping. She took care of all things electric and computer based. Zoe will be in my guest room until her place is ready. We are making room in the kitchen and bathroom for her “things”. Tomorrow I work. She will go get a few things she forgot from the old house. The movers will be there doing a house clean out. Everything left they take care of. Then tomorrow afternoon I take her to the lawyer for her to sign the papers for closing. Her dog and my dog have met. India is quite nice to Scout. Scout is pretending India does not exist.

    Martha, That sounds just about right. Our mom is jumping around like an idiot right now. Something about finding the things that are in the picture below.

    How cool that you have Snowhook and Chet the Dog items!!

  23. Tupper's Mama
    5:14 pm on September 14th, 2015

    Howlers – oh no! Crutches? What is the diagnosis?

    HOH – sniff. Little miracles make any day better.

    Dawson – could you send that strong young man to our house next. Gramps dirt pile is starting to resemble a meadow hillock.

    Martha – whew! Sounds like it is all good. Your family and its extensions are wonderful.

    Scout – you teach that big, black doggie who the boss is.

  24. Tupper's Mama

    BooBear’s Mom – WOOO HOOOOOO!!!!!

  25. dawson
    5:42 pm on September 14th, 2015

    HOH: I’m so glad you found those precious items.

    Gramps: You know it’s bad when you have to weed your dirt pile.

    BooBear: I see those Snowhook items in your future.

    Martha, Zoe and helpers: Tough job well done.

    I am so happy that BooBear’s momma is going North to Alaska. My momma wishes she could be there with her.
    Diagnosis of Momma’s hurt knee must wait until tomorrow.

    BooBear: Woooooohoooo for your mom. Ever since WosenGrizz went to the 2013 Iditarod we have never stopped talking about it! Wondering if anyone has an extra Tumi that I can fit in….

    Kat: I hope your momma is feeling tip-top soon!

    HOH: You don’t know how happy I am that your mom found those Iditarod mementos.

    HOH: happy for you to find those very special items. That is so cool! I hope you are finding other things to make your heart happy.

    Just had my post-energy rating after all my energy improvements. I went from a 3+ star house to a 5+ house which means I get a nice rebate from the state (about a third of what I actually spent but every bit helps).

    Howlers, tell your mom that Barb did many injuries to her left knee which resulted in the knee replacement. One of the injuries was being pulled off her feet by Xander, her male Airedale, about 16 years ago. In addition: dirt bike riding, horseback riding, white water rafting, tennis, and throw in a little arthritis.

  30. Herd of Hounds
    7:52 pm on September 14th, 2015

    Oh, Barb! The only thing missing is dog clipping at the knee:( You wild and crazy lady, you!

  31. Thieves!
    8:40 pm on September 14th, 2015

    BML: We are jealous of Xander. Our Lady has yet to let us ride a dirt bike.

    Royal Mum: Please check your SDD when able. I’ll be heading to my soft,cool bed soon, so I will check back tomorrow.

  33. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:43 pm on September 14th, 2015

    Thieves, sorry to disappoint you. Those are separate incidents. Barb was walking Xander on a leash when when he took off after a squirrel and yanked her off her feet. The dirt bike injury when she was about 30, the Xander incident was when she was about 55.

    Hot Ticket Barb on a dirt bike. We always knew there was a wild and crazy side to our favorite Chicken Lady.
