A Very Long Paragraph: From The Dog Who Knew Too Much (In Progress)

A guy named Guy? That rang a faint bell. I waited for it to ring louder, and while I was waiting, the guy named Guy – one of those very blond dudes, hair almost white, but with dark eyes that really stood out in all that paleness – said something like, “You giving the orders now, babe?” And if not exactly that, then pretty close, but what came through the clearest was the tone. One thing about human speech – and sometimes I think there’s a bit too much of it, no offense, and besides that wasn’t the one thing I was heading toward, which was about the fact that human speech has two parts happening at the same time. One is the words, often hard to understand – maybe even by humans, but that’s just a thought I once had, back when Bernie and Leda were going through the divorce. That was the only time I saw Bernie cry, not when Charlie’s stuff was getting packed up, but after, when it was just me and Bernie alone in the house. Never mind that; what I was getting to was that other part of human speech, the part that’s always a snap to understand: the tone. The tone’s a dead giveaway, dead giveaway being one of Bernie expressions I really like. He has a bunch, which maybe I can go into later. But right now it was all about the tone of speech of the guy named Guy: nasty. I like just about every human I’ve ever rubbed up against – even the perps and gangbangers – except for the nasty-sounding types. This Guy guy was showing signs of being the nasty-sounding type.

    Chet, I think you are right about the “guy named Guy”. It’s hard getting the tone of human speech through the written word, but you through this long paragraph have showed us perfectly what Guy, the guy, is like. Good dog!

    Wow!….Brilliant!! 🙂 Now that’s a long paragraph!….snort!…I wonder if Chet is hiding from the guy named Guy? My friend said she thinks this is when Chet is separated from Bernie at least that’s what she read on Facebookie…..grunt!

    I think you should watch out for the guy named Guy. Chet, you are probably more
    perspicacious that most people I know. Keep an eye on Bernie.

    Guy is no good.
    We are traveling back to Mpls today and it is supposed to be sunny and not too cold.
    It is snowing.

    Hoping Zoe, Dan and Melanie all had good nights.


    Got to get moving.

    Chet, thanks for another peak at the Dog Who…a book that I am really looking forward to. I agree with Chet…dogs notice tone of voice more than anything else humans use when communicating.

    Staff, glad you reported in last night and that all is well with you.

    Yesterday Staff mentioned that C.Harris was fairly new to the blog. If my memory is correct, and who knows about that, C. Harris is indeed new in her comeback, but was one of the first to be on the blog when it started.

    Staff, Did all go well with you meetings with the docs yesterday? When do you start your winter job?

    Melanie, Let us know how Zoe is doing today.

    We agree, Guy is not a good guy.

    Barb is off for a hair cut. BBL

    That snow storm ignored my pleas to come this way. Our weather guys on TV are still trying to hype the 3-5 inches.

    Buffalo’s snow total so far is 44.9 inches. Here in ski country it is 119 inches. We needed that snow – not Melanie.

  12. Melanie
    11:33 am on January 12th, 2011

    We’ve had 20 inches and it looks like 3 or more during the day. Our neighbor down the street has plowed out around the cars, and when the storm lessens, Jesse is going to do the walks and doorways.

    It is not a heavy snow. Boston had trees down with the weight of the snow. And that was IN the city. Hope the Cape is okay.

    Zoë is undergoing the procedure and I’m going to call in around 15 minutes to see what is up with that. I know she was in at 10:30 but not sure when they started.

    Dan’s pneumonia is better! He has to have a blood transfusion for anemia, but that is not unusual for what he is going through.

    Would have love to send some of this your way, MollyPop, but my sister wanted a snow day. I’ve told her she’s not allowed to wish for another one this year.

    11:47 am on January 12th, 2011

    Oooo, I hate the auto update on this computer. I typed an entire paragraph and was just about to send when, poof everything was gone…grumble.

    I said that we were anxiously awaiting news from Melanie/Zoe and Bee. Hopefully there will be good news all around.

    It did not get down to 14 last night, only 22. I have no idea what those numbers mean, but mom said it was plenty cold enough for her. Dad turn the heat to 60 and there are some pupsicles here. If I could just get a little help with this sweater..hmmphhh…ok, head in, now where is that leg hole…ahhhh, much better. I do not have the luxurious fur of Mr. Husky, or even the poodles.

    The attached picture is of Belle and Holly on one of their regular trips to The Big Orange Box. I went latter that day, but I guess pops didn’t think to take MY picture.

  14. Siber-H
    11:56 am on January 12th, 2011

    Thanks for the update, Melanie. Dan is getting better!

    Macy, How is your mom feeling? She is another one of our not well plunderers.

    I wanna do that. I wanna go to the Big Orange Box and ride around in a basket…an orange basket, no less.

  15. Sam
    11:57 am on January 12th, 2011

    Melanie, your sister might want to trim down her wishing in the future. Is it possible to over-wish?

  16. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:16 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Belle! …La bella! I would ride around in an orange cart with her anyday!…snort!snort!

  17. Mollypop
    12:31 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Macy – one of our chairlifts was an old two-seater that was orange. When Sam’s girl was little, she always said she was riding on the Home Depot Chair.

  18. Mollie (a black poodle)
    12:35 pm on January 12th, 2011

    I remember C. Harris was one of the first to post. Another was Diane B. I wonder what happened to Diane B.
    Good news that Dan is better.

  19. Melanie
    12:37 pm on January 12th, 2011

    I think the big orange box will be missing a cart or two or three. I can just see Siber-H saying “Faster, faster, faster . . .” And Riö “go here, no there, no here . .”

    Update on Zoë: She has Takot-subo syndrome. http://www.takotsubo.com

    About 70-80% of cases of Tako-tsubo Syndrome (TTS) occur in post-menopausal women under some form of extreme, exceptional and prolonged mental stress,… with no good way out, no relief and often feeling deep resentment (such as the loss of a dear one…)

    She asked me to read that to Dan. I did AND made sure he understood that he was NOT going to add to her stress!

    Good thing! 95% of the women who have this have a complete recovery within a month or so.

    Whew . . .

  20. Melanie
    12:42 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Sam, as far as I am concerned, yes, she over wished!

    Can Princesses over wish?

  21. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:00 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Zoe!… Poor thing. She is suffering from stress, anger and heart ache over Dan’s situation most likely….snort!… My friend’s mother makes herself sick by stressing and worrying, it usually affects her stomach though….sniff!…My friend used to be this way, but now she is a lot better about not dwelling and worrying about things she cannot control….snuffle!

  22. Tupper & Gilly
    1:07 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Hi Gang – Tupper the happy dancing Corgi with the wiggle butt here. So very happy about Zoe. So happy about Dan. But as to the weather…well, not so much. We are always so ready to go out in the morning, we jump on the door and bark and run in circles til the door is open, then we RUUUUNNNN around the back yard. This morning, the magic door opened, and Gilly made a dash for it… and plowed headfirst into 18″ of snowbank. Boooof! The snow is powder and she just disappeared right up to her little butt. But she bounced back out and looked back at Mama with snow piled on her head. Then she started leaping like a jackrabbit thru the drifts. Mama and I were laughing so hard – seems little southern belle Gilly from Dixie wasn’t quite sure what to do with this stuff. But she sure had fun for a while. Being much more dignified, I made my way along the house where the snow wasn’t so deep. Siber and Mollypop- wanna come play here? You can make a path for us.

  23. Barb & Maggie
    1:14 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Glad Zoe is better and that they know what she has. Now just find a way to make her de-stress!

    Molly, How much snow doe you have, it says up above 119 inches. Is that right, or is it supposed to be 11.9?

  24. Mollypop
    1:36 pm on January 12th, 2011

    MagPie! The snow numbers are for this whole winter season. Buffalo snow of 44.9 inches is measured at the Buffalo Niagara Airport, so that big dump of 42 inches a month ago was in a swath 12 miles wide and not far from the airport. The rest of the Buffalo area got 2 inches from that one. These things make our weather bureau guys crazy.

    I’m 50 miles to the south of Buffalo at a ski area which is conveniently located in the snow belt. Here we have had 119 inches so far this season. That is all natural snow – then there is snowmaking also.

  25. Siber-H
    1:36 pm on January 12th, 2011

    I’m glad that they figured out what was wrong with Zoe so quickly. I read that article, and I think Zoe will make a full recovery. The Newfs are going to have to set on Zoe to get her to slow down and take it easy. Zoe has been through so much as have Melanie and Dan.

  26. Siber-H
    1:51 pm on January 12th, 2011

    T&G, I’d come help you ladies out with your snow problem if mom would let me. She won’t loan me her truck or her credit card. She doesn’t trust me. I have no idea why.

    Mollypop, You have had 112 more inches of snow than I have had.

    To add insult to injury, I get an email from Barnes and Noble today that starts out with “Snowed In?” NO, I am not snowed in.

  27. Debbie LM
    1:57 pm on January 12th, 2011

    What wonderful news about Zoe – while nothing at all would be best but we’ll take a full recovery expected! We should all remind ourselves to do as Goldens do – seize the day, slowly!

    Has anyone heard anything from B. Stover about her tests?

  28. Melanie
    2:22 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Haven’t heard from b. Stover yet.

    Talk about de-stressing. It would be better when Zoë has a new nurse. This one was rude and didn’t come when Zoë asked her too.

    Zoë needed to eat, and her gown needed changing. I get a call with her in tears. Saying she wants out of there by tomorrow morning! Sooooooo, I called the nurse and asked what was happening and she said that Zoë couldn’t eat because she might choke and she had to be at 30 degree angle and couldn’t get higher. I asked her to let me talk to Zoë. Turns out that right after the procedure she ate at a 30 degree angle, didn’t choke and was really hungry. (She eats frequent small meals during the day.) So her blood sugar was getting low and this woman wanted her to wait until 4 to eat. I asked if the nurse was listening to her. And she said yes.

    I get the nurse again and said, You are going to get something for Zoë to eat and change her gown. She said yes.

    I called her doctor and she will be hooking Zoë up to get out of there tomorrow morning.

    I called Zoë back, she was eating and had her gown changed. I then read the blog to her and she started calming down.

    Jeez. Usually the nurses are wonderful!

    2:40 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Melanie!…Everyone has a bad day, even nurses…snort!… I have bad days quite often but I try to hide it from all of you…heh!….Zoe seems to be getting the correct care now. If she can just get through today and tonight she will be heading home. Weather permitting…. grunt!

  30. Melanie
    3:07 pm on January 12th, 2011

    One of her grandchildren is picking her up tomorrow at 9 am.
    She leaving then. Hope the hospital is aware of it. 🙂

    Clarkson!…Speaking of Grandchildren!…snort!… Has Clarkson heard anything yet about his audition?….gruff!

  32. Melanie
    3:28 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Nope. It always takes a while. But he is sick. I told him that he had a 24 hour bug. He said that would be fine with him.

  33. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:40 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Sick!… Oh no. I wish I could slobber in his ears. That would make him feel better…heh!…A little nip here and there wouldn’t hurt either…snort!…Well, maybe a little….sniff!

  34. Melanie
    3:53 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Getting together some relaxing and fun videos for Zoë to watch when she starts feeling stressed. Here’s a dog after Siber-H’s heart!

  35. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:56 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Floods!….I’ve been reading about the flooding in Australia and here is an exerpt from the story out on NPS….wheeze!… “In Ipswich, video showed horses swimming through the brown waters, pausing to rest their heads on the roof of a house — the only dry spot they could reach.”…grunt! …Gives one an idea about how bad it is in certain parts….sniff! …Stay dry Lizzie!

  36. B.Stover
    4:09 pm on January 12th, 2011

    The paragraph seems “tense” to me. Have to think about it more.

    The lung specialist thinks I have either a fungus infection in both my sinuses and lungs (I’m allergic to mold) or it could be a bad case of pneumonia. She’s doing more blood work and I’m going to have a bronchoscopy next week or the week after.

    I haven’t read all of the posts yet so I’ll do that now.

  37. B.Stover
    4:24 pm on January 12th, 2011

    I’m being moderated f…ing again!

    Glad to hear about Zoe.

    Doctor thinks I have allergic fungus infection or a bad case of pneumonia.

  38. B.Stover
    4:27 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Continuing: I have the other test (naming it may be causing the moderation…it’s with a scope into my lungs) either next week or the next. I feel relieved.

  39. B.Stover
    4:28 pm on January 12th, 2011

    The paragraph in today’s post seems “tense” to me. I have to think about this some more.

  40. B.Stover
    4:35 pm on January 12th, 2011

    C.Harris was one of the first bloggers here. Diane B. and her daughter Rebecca Rice were also but neither of them have posted for a long time.

  41. Siber-H
    4:50 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Melanie, that dog in that video is funny!! He is having a blast, and look at all that snow!

    Stover, We are relieved, also. They are narrowing down what the problem is and will get you cured. We want you to feel better.

    I agree that the long paragraph seems “tense”. Good writing by Spence, because I felt that while I was reading it.

  42. Melanie
    4:51 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Hi B.Stover: I’m glad the options are getting smaller.

    Though allergic fungus infection sounds really yucky.

    Still snowing a little, but won’t amount to much more. Total? 24 inches.

    5:10 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Bee, glad to hear from you. Fungus does sound sort of icky, but curable.

    Glad Zoe is getting out of there tomorrow. Is Dan still scheduled to come home next Monday?

  44. LizF
    5:14 pm on January 12th, 2011

    B, you still have that pneumonia? For some reason, that sounds better than allergic fungus infection but i bet it doesn’t feel better. Get well – you, Zoe, Dan, Macy’s mum. Everyone!

    Hey Rio, I saw those horses on the news, poor things. Also a man carrying a young kangaroo in waist-deep water, i hope they’re both okay. Meanwhile the floods are starting to recede, which is good, but your big Eastern snowstorm was on the news here, that looked amaaaazing.

    BTW Rio, did you know there’s an animated movie coming out this year called “Rio” – you’re so famous! (except it’s about a macaw, i think, or a toucan).

  45. B.Stover
    5:15 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Thanks all. Fungus invections can cause a collapsed lung.

    We have about three inches of snow. It was really beautiful when the sun was out…like diamond flakes. It’s really cold and windy though.

    Mollypop: I failed the breathing tests but I honestly don’t thik anyone could pass them.

  46. Mollypop
    5:51 pm on January 12th, 2011

    B – If your breathing tests were a Pulmonary Function Test, Mom has them. In fact, next Monday is her test.

  47. B.Stover
    5:57 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Mollypop: Yes…a glass cubicle connected to a computer that graphs your breathing. Deep breath in and blow it out and keep on…but I couldn’t.

  48. Mollypop
    6:00 pm on January 12th, 2011

    B – Mom gets scared when they close the glass door on the cubicle and the only air comes from that thing in her mouth.

  49. B.Stover
    6:26 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Mollypop: And there isn’t enough leg room. There must be a better way.

    7:18 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Hey y’all! Is there a fungus among us?? (Sorry, Bee, I couldn’t resist!) I’m glad they’re narrowing things down. Hopefully they’ll have an answer — and a solution! — soon.

    Mom just got home from the library — she said it was white-knuckle driving most of the way. It’s a good thing she learned to drive up north, because if she was somebody who learned how to drive around here, she’d probably be sitting in a ditch right now. At one point she fishtailed on the ice, and the car tried to go in the ditch, but Mom wouldn’t let it! There are two ways for her to get to work — this morning she took the interstate to work (which takes longer), but tonight she went her usual route. Big mistake! It’s the interstate tomorrow for sure — the library is opening an hour late in the morning, but she doesn’t think that will help the roads enough to go her usual way tomorrow — and maybe not ’til summer!

  53. Tupper & Gilly
    7:22 pm on January 12th, 2011

    B.Stover – this does sound like good, albeit icky news. Those fungus infections can do some really nasty things to all kinds of parts of your body. Even if you have to do a course of prednasone, its one way to get over this stuff.
    Melanie – if you want, our Mama can go to the hospital and get after anyone who isn’t being nice to Zoe. When Mama gets upset, rude people tend to end up under their desks, rocking and sucking their thumbs.

  54. Melanie
    7:31 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Thanks Bluecat.

    B.Stover and MollyPop: What an terrible sounding test!

    Kirby T.: Tell your mom to be careful. She may have learned to drive up North, but there are plenty of people who THINK they know how to drive in the snow down South.

    T&G: Hmm, tell your mom that sounds familiar! Zoë’s hospitalist turned out to be one she liked and she is all set to come home tomorrow at 9 am. (Actually I think she’d be ready at 5 but hey) The nurse has gone off shift and she likes this one.

    I’ll be back. I’m going to watch a “Bones” episode.

  55. Kirby T. Penworthy
    7:34 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Melanie: She’s lived down South long enough to know about those people — like the idiot tonight who was right on her tail with his brights on! He finally backed off when they hit a patch of ice — maybe he discovered he didn’t drive so good on the ice afterall!!!

  56. Tupper & Gilly
    7:37 pm on January 12th, 2011

    oooo-Bones – our Favorite thing!! Wait a minute…its a tv show?

  57. Mollypop
    7:58 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Nobody rides on my Mom’s tail. She has a BMW SUV that has headlight washers that work when the headlights are on and you wash the windshield. Well, as physics would have it, when the car is moving, the headlight washers go right around the car and soak the windshield of the guy tailing.

    They back right off and besides it’s a hoot.

    Liz!…I have not heard about the movie named after my name…grunt!….What’s it about again?..sniff!

    Kirby!…A fungus among us …heh!snort!heh!….Good one!… Sorry Stover, glad you survived the test even if you didn’t pass it…sniffle!

    Tupper!… heh!snort!heh!…Bones! I never get real bones anymore. She is afraid I will choke to death because of that incident out on the farm last summer involving a steak bone…grump! ….Your mama sounds a lot like someone I know around here…snort!

    Losers!….We are watching The Biggest Loser and she is eating raw almonds…snort!… I know this almond thing will eventually turn into peanut brittle as the year progresses…grunt!…Hey, I’ve seen this year after year, it never changes….cough!

  59. Kirby T. Penworthy
    8:08 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Mom gave me a rawhide bone for Christmas — it’s so big I’m still working on it! She also got some for my girl’s dogs, and for the other dog she brought home at Christmas. Molly is my girl’s boyfriend’s roommate’s dog — did you get all that? Anyway, someone else was taking care of the dog, but her grandma went into the hospital, so my girl volunteered to take care of Molly instead. So my girl texted my mom yesterday to say that Molly refuses to chew on that bone. Instead she carries it with her everywhere she goes, and even sleeps with it! She’s a really nice dog — a big yellow lab — but doesn’t she know what a bone is for???

  60. B.Stover
    8:11 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Yes, steroids are given for a fungus infection along with anti-fungal medicine. I’m allergic to mold.

    I’m watching Bones also.

    8:22 pm on January 12th, 2011

    Bee – glad you will be feeling better soon.
    Melanie – glad that the shift schange nurse is nice
    Plunderers – glad you are all home safe and sound in this nasty weather.
    And us – we’re glad that Mama washed our blankies today – -yawwwwn. We’re gong to be now. G’night.

    Mom’s mother in law was medivaced (is that a word?) to the hospital twice with “Broken Heart Syndrome.” She is doing fine now but it was scary at the time.

    Boy, long paragraphs take a lot of focused reading but Spence/Chet did a good job.

    I am trying to remember how I discovered this blog. I had picked up the 1st book in a bookstore in Kentucky. I kept putting it down and picking it up, reading the blurb and then the first page. That was all it took and I bought it in hardback which I *never* do. Of course, I loved the book and couldn’t wait for more. I think I was on Amazon looking for more and reading the customer reviews and got directed to the blog. Early, early days. I try and read the post daily but sometimes I get behind on the comments.

    Rio, we are supposed to get colder up here so I think that means your weather will improve. Take heart.

    I think once everyone is home from their various hospitals and medical appointments we will all feel better.

    Kirby: Class started on Monday and I had the department chair give my classes to someone else. I wouldn’t be able to teach now because I can’t speak long enough yet.

    T&G: Thank you.

    Hi Wolfie.

    Rio: Of course you can come to Florida with me. We have a screened-in porch surrounded by commons that you’d like. And in March it’s a nice temperature.

    Can’t keep my eyes open any longer. Good night all.

    Ooooooh!… I want to go to Florida with Stover so badly I could howl!…WoooWoooooYEEEEEEP… sob!sob!sob!… I know someone won’t let me. Probably a good thing because the pat down and the full body scan would divulge stuff I’ve eaten and should not have….grunt!… Sob!Sob!Sob!…I hate winter…sniff!… I miss Baseball so much. She said after we finish the Laura R King novel we will be starting The Fan by the Charming Mr. Abrahams…snuffle!…I can’t wait!!!! At least he gets the baseball right in the story. Hmmm. Where did I hear that phrase before?…whiffle! …Sibero-H liked the book so we know it is up to snuff in quirkiness….heh! … I don’t think any Kats are harmed either…snorkel!

    Good night Bee and Melanie. We like the Bones series too, but right now we are trying to get thru Eat,Pray Love, the movie. Can’t imagine reading the book. Got thru about 3 pages of that. The movie is 1 hour 45 min, so may do that much. TTFN.

    Mom says thanks for asking about her. She just can’t seem to get well. Today she got really dizzy and hot and sick feeling, then her head felt like it was splitting down the middle. She called dad and told him to check on her later in case she hit the floor. I do not know how (or why) someone would hit the floor. There doesn’t seem to be much point to it.

    Mr. Husky, come on over to our big orange box and we can have buggy races. Rio, Belle says “come on big boy, I have a basket with your name on it”.

    MinPin!…Tell your gal she needs to see her doctor again before something really bad happens…snort!…She may need more antibiotics or steroids or a Genies Lamp to rub! …grunt!….She has been sick way to long….drat! snort!

    Macy, I hope your mom is seeing a doctor. I worry about that pneumonia stuff.
    You and I could leave Belle and Rio in the dust at the buggy races at the big orange box.

    Rio, you will like The Fan. PA does get his baseball right. I think we will read it again soon.

    On the news this morning, it was reported that the only state without snow today was Florida.
    Zoe continues the family tradition of NOT staying too long in hospital. Glad they know what ails you, Zoe. Rest is needed.
    B.Stover: They are slowly narrowing in on what ails you. But your lung…do they just leave it partially collapsed? Please be careful.
    Macy MinPin: I agree with Rio…you’re mum’s been sick too long. Give her some extra hugs and licks so she knows you care. Tell her we all want her to feel better.
    Chet: Thanks for that really long paragraph.

    Well another exciting day on ChettheDog.com. Staff and MrStaff turned up here around 6 pm and moved a ton of stuff into the house. Jeez there wasn’t room for the stuff they brought down the first two times!
    It was nice to see them though. I made staff pet me on the wool rug immediately. Alice wanted them to go downstairs and change the litter, but TurtlemanFred did it this morning so she was just faking it. It is good to have them back. I will have someone to sleep with tonight. Alice won’t sleep with me. Snooty kat that she is.

    It is so good to hear Zoe and B. are diagnosed and hopefully on their way to being healthy. We are still worried about Macy’s mom though. She has got to respect that illness and not just keep working cause ‘someone has to be there’. It is not your problem Macy’s Mom. It is your bosses problem. Let him solve it and you get some rest.

    I think I will go take a pre-bed nap myself.

    MrStaff says that soybeans went up 60 cents today. Just so you know. teehee. He has no soybeans so I don’t know why he cares.

    Good night guys.
    All that travel makes me tired. I don’t know why, I napped and MrStaff drove. Be safe out there.
    Zoe, Dan, BStover, Macy the Min-Pin’s Mom, Melanie and C.Harris who was on the blog before me and went away so I thought she was new. Oh heck, even Rio the evil Pug.

    Love you all. Stay warm and dry.

    Umm!… No Liz, I don’t get out much…snort!…But I’m sure Jeff was good. He usually is. Not a movie star type at all. I really love that about him… gruff! ….Well, we are both equally tired after her hard day at work…heh!…So off to bed we go, and I get to sleep on the big bed because it is so damned cold again tonight…heh!heh!…Up, up I go…snorkel!…Then deep down under the covers where I snuggle in and snore a bit all night long…gruffle! …Night all!
