    Hey Tyb and Joy! Good morning and Happy Holidays to you and to everyone else. Expecting another sunny day in the 70s here…

    Whoa–I just went back and read the “natural bird control” article–what a great idea!

    And what better dog for the job than a Border Collie. They are tireless and love to work. The article mentions some airports use fake coyotes and fake owls. We can testify to the fact that fake owls do not work, at least not in the garden.

    Diane, you must be a really early riser, since it is just now 5:46 in CA.

    I would like to apply for that job. I am an excellent bird chaser.
    Moving expenses must be paid for my mom and pop to come with me.

    Ready to leave for work. I work today and next Tuesday. Tough two week schedule!

    The sun is actually shinning today. First time we have seen the sun in a week or more. What a nice change!

    Have a Twirling Tuesday everyone!

    I am enjoying the greetings from Tyb, Jay, Teddy, and Zeta.

    It is grey and drizzly here. The ‘rents are thinking about upgrading their iPhones to 6. They are due for an upgrade, although their 4s phones are fine. A co-worker of Mom’s told her that we pay an extra in our monthly bill, for our provider subsidizing the cost of the phone. This guy did a purchase of his new iPhone 6 instead, and pays for it in installments that are about the same as that subsidy. When it is paid off, he will own it, and he won’t have that extra subsidy in his monthly bill. Can anyone of you confirm this theory?

    11:45 am on December 23rd, 2014

    I have the 5s, but don’t recall the cost. I think I paid for it up front.

    I am at the office and a client just told me that we have had no sunny days for almost 2 1/2 weeks, longest since 1954. I didn’t realize that it had been that long since I say any sunshine!

    My boss is coming in shortly, and I am hoping for a Christmas bonus today! I brought him some candy and a book he is interested in reading.

    O’Howlers, that is correct. The iPhone is paid for in your monthly bill after 20 months but if you keep paying, they’re happy to keep the money. Verizon has an upgrade that has a base price for the service and then the phone price is added to the basic bill for 20 months ONLY!

    12:49 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    We are glad Aero has such a fun (for a Border Collie) job and she is keeping the planes safe. She is pretty.
    My dear friend, Molly the Husky, would come up with a different solution for the bird problem.
    I’m not very interested in birds.

    Thanks for the cute pictures, TYB, Prince Teddy, and Princess Zeta.

    If my mom hadn’t seen the sun for 2 1/2 weeks, she would be packing the truck to leave.

    12:54 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    I meant to say saw sunshine, not say sunshine. Duh!

    It is very quiet here today. Not many people interested in talking about insurance this close to Christmas. Next week will be busy with people calling in about new cars and new jewelry.

  18. Tupper and Gilly
    12:55 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    We upgraded to a 6, and told the store manager that we did not want to pay an activation fee. Have been with Verizon forever and always pay on time. We danced around a little with the manager, but when we mentioned all the other companies offering deals and no activation fees, Verizon caved. We did buy the optional insurance for 10 a month because the new 6 is very fragile and has thin glass.

  19. O'Howlers
    1:13 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    MPM, Thanks. That is what Mom’s friend said. He bought his iPhone 6 outright, from AT&T we think. They had some special plan, which may no longer be available, to pay for it in installments.that sounds very similar to what you said about Verizon. We probably need to stick with AT&T, because they give us the best cell service in our remote area.

    Hey all! Mom just got home from toddler town at the library. Mostly quiet there today and she got lots of work done 🙂 B&M&L thenk you for giving us a Twirling Tuedsay, a great idea right before the big holidays. Tyb & Jay & Teddy & Zeta, great holiday greetings. Sun? What is that? We are getting used to grey, drizzle and fog.

    2:01 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    Mom just sat down with a “new” (smells like about a lot of other nation within and kats) library book and lots of boomers began so we are going to cuddle with her on the couch to keep her safe.

    Henry wants to be the F.O.O.D.

    He has lost his red collar and has to wear his old chewed up one.

    Mr.Fireslippers is taking me out to lunch for the you know what day. I am having a happy one.

    If it was our house, you would find that red collar in the litter box.

    Happy Day Staff. Thousands more to you – in Kat years, anyway.

    Great Cards.

    3:40 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    Haven’t heard anything about Howie lately. Is he doing OK? Hope we didn’t miss something.

    Happy, Happy Day to you Staff. Have a perfectly lovely day.

    We are getting the second disc for Broadchurch tomorrow. Yay!

  36. Scout
    3:44 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    Hmmm. I do a job like Aero’s already. I sit on mom’s lap, look out the window into the woods, and bark endlessly at anything that moves, even leaves. So far. So good. No leaves have snuck into the house.
    Mom seems very happy. Something about how school does not resume until January 5th.

  37. Tupper and Gilly
    4:15 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    Scout – good dog! We do a good job too. We even bark at butterfly burps. We think it is strange that no one else hears them.

    Hey Staff, we do not care how old you are. How many sunrises have you seen?
    T&G, we bark ar bullerfly farts, so between us we have “both ends” covered 🙂
    Scout, our leaves are really sneaky, they hitch rides in on our tails. Could you give us advise on that?

  40. Staff
    5:49 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    HOH, I have not seen nearly as many sunrises as I would like. I am a sunset kinda gal. Those sunrises I have seen have been beautiful.

    Here is a sunset about a mile from the farm.

  41. Herd of Hounds
    6:04 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    You are right, that is gawgeous! (P.S. mom pregers sunsets too)

  42. Diane C.
    6:37 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    Happy Birthday staff!
    Henry is stunning. I’m stunned. Really.
    Scout, you might enjoy working with Ms. Pretty as she also enjoys barking at anything that moves (including shadows) or even at things that aren’t there. Her brothers only bark at me, and only when they want something (like quicker service with the food bowls, or to be lifted onto the bed).
    Teddy RR–you did a great job on the gingerbread–who needs opposable thumbs?

  43. Herd of Hounds
    6:38 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    Pardon us, that should be “preFers” sunsets, too. Mom says that “good morning” is an oxymoron!

  44. Billy's Buddy
    6:56 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    HOH’s Mom: Many years ago “pregers” meant something else.

    Time for a strengthening cocktail.

    Teddy: Grizz and I love the cookies!

  47. Herd of Hounds
    7:09 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    We would say that we were “emberesada” , but that and preggers mean the same in Spanish. One cannot win for losing 🙁

    Loulou on patrol. The security guards know that she has it covered. The window is 9 feet tall.

    Happy birthday to Staff! And many more.

    Thanks Tyb and Jay for the lovely card;
    to Teddy and Zeta for the wonderful cookies;
    and to Mollypop’s Mom for the picture of Loulou on security duty. I think your new place looks great!

    Congratulations to the studly Henri for being FOOD!

    Ice skating on the old Erie Canal.

    I can hop on the Metro Rail to see Canal Side. HOH, I’m enjoying downtown.

  55. Mollypop's Mom
    7:59 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    Barb, there are two black chairs. They are 17 years old. I think Dawson was sitting on one. Mollypop destroyed them by wiping her long snoot on them after she ate dinner.

  56. Mollypop's Mom
    8:08 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    To go to Main Street from my apartment, I have to go through the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Loulou is learning how to go through a revolving door.

    MPM, I want to come to live with you.

  60. Mollypop's Mom
    8:57 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    I try to lure you guys to come here to visit by saying I’ll take you to Niagara Falls. Last March I succeeded and when you all arrived, we were hit with a snow storm and a driving ban. I’m not giving up.

    Canal Side is another reason to come. It was 10 years in the making. People wanted to open the original entrance to the Erie Canal, but the NYS engineers said we couldn’t, the rocks would explode, and a replica would be built. We all went ballistic. The original canal was opened, no exploding rocks, and now people are ice skating on it.

  61. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:23 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    MollysMaw!…What time of year in your estimation is the best time to visit for us guys who do not enjoy sitting in the snow?…grunt!

  62. MTMP
    9:31 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    Hi y’all. We are just sitting here waiting for our girl Niki to arrive. This is Tuesday, right? She said she would try to get here early, but it is just about too late to be early any more.

    For the second time, Belle got into the the chocolate meant for the girls. This year it was TWO giant bars. The wrapper for one was in the kennel that Belle never goes in. I’m not saying who does or does not have chocolate on her breath, but it is Belle’s fault for getting on the counter. Again. Mom was careful to put the bar that was wrapped out of reach. Oh Mom.

    Hi Tyb, looking good Teddy and Zeta, and happy Christmas Eve Eve to all.

    I still want to see Niagara Falls!

  65. Mollypop's Mom
    9:49 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    Rio, the best time to visit Niagara Falls is in the nice late spring weather before school gets out.

    Well,we now have iPhone 6 phones. The photos you guys have been posting are all great and so much clearer.
    We just watched Christmas Story. We love it when the Bumpuses dogs get the turkey! Heh Heh! Did we ever tell youse about the time when Misha and Sasha grabbed the turkey carcass out of the trash can, right in front of a houseful of people on Christmas Day?

  69. Tupper and Gilly

    Oops. Never mind. We thought the commercial was the end.

    O’Howlers: Misha and Sasha were the life of the party that year!
    Congrats on getting the new phones.

    T&G: Snort!

    Thieves: Is the baby Jesus still in the manger?

  71. Thieves!
    11:16 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    Dawson: Doc made his move for baby Jesus a couple of days ago, but was caught red-pawed by our Lady. He has not given up his plan. When you are stealing baby Jesus the stakes are high and planning is required. Doc now walks by it several times with the notion that if he moves slow enough our Lady cannot see him. It seems reasonable to us. We are cheering him on with all our thieving hearts.

  72. dawson
    11:27 pm on December 23rd, 2014

    Doc might be onto something! I remember that Franklin the RiverBearNewf could disappear simply by looking down at the floor. So anything’s possible.
    Tell your lady I sent her a sdd yesterday.
