    Good morning, All!
    We did not like those pictures. No we did not. But you will notice that none of our kind are included? #1: We wouldn’t allow you to get us that wet. #2: If you did manage to get us that wet, you would never manage to keep us there long enough for a photograph.

    Greetings!

    I hope my Alaskan family made it through the night safe and sound, and that there was not too much hogging for space under the bed!

    DEREK JETER!

    ML: Keep hanging in there! We are sisters, and we will do this together!

    RIO! I hope your friend’s pug-eye is better.

    Belle STARR: I have a confession about those sparkles….

    WHO’S A BIRTHDAY GIRL TODAY!?! OUR MOST BELOVED PIXIE!!!! Sparkle, sparkle, sparkle, sparkle!

    Good morning all. Those were cute and funny pictures. Nothing bad today.

    Glad all are safe up north. Happy job hunting to ML and Rose.

    Banking situation is all straightened out. Jewel Foods did exactly what Howlers said they would do, and my account is once again in balance. No tom-foolery was involved.

    Perfect fall day here. These days are to be cherished.

    9:57 am on September 26th, 2014

    DDD, Happy you are Home. Sorry for the Ouchies. :(

    Barb&Magpie: We thought your Question of yesterday had been Answered…but maybe not.
    The Sudden Trip to the Orient was precipitated by a last minute invitation by Nanasan’s Dil. Two family members were unable to join her in HK so she asked Nanasan if she would like to go. The suite was already reserved and paid for, costs would be minimal, what was to stop her?
    Besides Getting back Home you mean? Why Nothing, nothing at all.

    Rose: A most fitting exit for one of the most beloved players in the game.
    Now excusez-moi…off to get ready for an early morning wonderfluffing appointment…and soon to be looking brand new ^..^

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SNOWBELLA! Will cake be involved?
    Maybe you can meet up with another (Hobbit-sized) Alaskan who will gracefully enter a new year tomorrow.

    Ok everyone – today is going to be calm, peaceful and without misadventure, right? Right!

  21. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Hobbit!….Tomorrow is the Hobbits birthday?…wow!

    10:41 am on September 26th, 2014

    Tupper&Gilly: Is there any Pie left from last night? If so, it’s always Good for Breakfast too you know (plaintive whimpering sounds).

  23. Billy's Buddy
    10:42 am on September 26th, 2014

    Rio: You choose the best cards!

  24. Barb & Maggie
    10:54 am on September 26th, 2014

    Happy Birthday to Rebecca today and C Hobbit tomorrow.

    BSD, Thanks for the explanation re the trip. Maybe you mentioned it and we were reading every other word.

    Now off to the grocery store, Menards and the post office.

  25. T.C.
    10:55 am on September 26th, 2014

    HEY!!! I failed to find the fun in that card for Rebecca. I was o.k. up until that taxi pulled up.
    wtf, Rio!

  26. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:57 am on September 26th, 2014

    Good-Riddance!…heh!snort!

  27. Tupper and Gilly
    11:07 am on September 26th, 2014

    BSD – funny thing about that pie. By the time it was cool enough to cut, everyone was ready for bed.
    So the whole pie is still on the counter….whoa! Wait a minute. What was that blur? And WHERE DID THE PIE GO????

  28. B.Stover
    11:07 am on September 26th, 2014

    That is a great card. (I’ll be humming Ode to Joy all day.)

    I’m not going to click on the link today…”wet,dogs” says it all.
    Spence needs to start finding videos and articles of dogs in the snow. There are more sled dogs on this blog than any other tribe.

    Speaking of sled dogs; HAPPY BIRTHDAY REBECCA!!!

    HOH, I am sure DDD is going to be hurting today but tomorrow should be better. We are glad he is home.

    11:21 am on September 26th, 2014

    I have advice for DDD: Benedryl! It will help the swelling PLUS you won’t fight with other dogs. It’s a two-for!

    11:40 am on September 26th, 2014

    TC – don’t worry about that card. The story is that the nice doggie paid for a taxi and a vacation so that kitty could come and visit with us. We have extra catnip, fuzzy mice and maybe, just maybe a plate full of melted ice cream.

  32. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:44 am on September 26th, 2014

    Taxi!…That Kat is on a one-way ticket out of town…snort!

    Whew! Thank dog Rio is not giving me the boot.

    Here is a nice story about Canines for Warriors:

    (Howlers, we happen to like your Siber Kat – she was fun to play with when she was here)

    Rio – phhhhhbbbbbtttttttt

    1:17 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Now, mom is the only 2 legger in the house without yellow jacket stings/bites :(
    We are sure that is a blessing as she is ‘lergic to the formic acid. Don’t think she should offer to help.

  38. Herd of Hounds
    1:18 pm on September 26th, 2014

    And the rest of the family is 2 doors down getting rid of the neighbors BUGS! Dog help us.

  39. T.C.

    Herbs, I wish you knew Meashka. She is my favorite. I love snuggling her.

  40. Herd of Hounds
    1:50 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Meashka, you are the princess/queen. Such a lady!

  41. Mama Meash
    2:00 pm on September 26th, 2014

    I take responsibility for my pack seriously, HOH. All 4-leggeds and 2-leggeds alike.

  42. dawson
    3:02 pm on September 26th, 2014

    HOH: You are making me buggy! Are the neighbors bugs the biting kind?
    DDD: You are absolutely NOT going near those yellow jackets nests again, are you? Or any other biting bugs!

    Happy Birthday to Rebecca! and tomorrow to CHobbit! Our two Northern friends. May you both have a joyful day. And many more!

    Hoping Rio’s friend’s eye is better today.

  43. O'Howlers
    3:07 pm on September 26th, 2014

    We are having the worst day ever. After weeks of problems with our water pump running when it shouldn’t run, Pop decided that today would be an excellent day to call them. He told Mom just as she was ready to go for a bike ride on her lunch hour, that someone was on his way. Now the guy can’t get the pump to prime. He has a water truck coming, but he is not sure that will work. The ‘rents thought they were going away for the weekend (for their 30th), but we are guessing that that is not gonna happen. So much for the money for the B&B and the Horse Ride tour. That will go down the same drain as all the water trying to prime a pump that will have to be replaced. We can’t win for trying here.

  44. O'Howlers
    3:08 pm on September 26th, 2014

    And as if all that were not bad enough, we can’t find T.C. who is likely hiding in that cellar where they guy now has the door opened. Mom’s head is splitting open.

  45. Basil and Sage
    3:20 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Aw geez louise – we thought this was going to be a not-troublesome day.
    T.C. – here, kitty, kitty, kitty……

  46. Wose-The Small and Meek
    3:25 pm on September 26th, 2014

    RIO! This is why I love you….I almost sent that card to Rebecca. Instead, I sent her a fun snail mail card.

    Hobbit’s birthday tomorrow? I must write this down on the Witte home calendar!

    Kat, there is still time for you to visit me in the deli. I have 3 more days, and then I will be switched to another department.

    Howlers: That sucks about the water pump, and the ‘rents missing out on their romantic 30th getaway. they will just have to postpone their 30th, and make a romantic getaway to the Iditarod.

    Please don’t lose T.C.

  47. Wose-The Small and Meek
    3:28 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Oh, I forgot. I got my first paycheck today. I can’t believe I made as much money this week as I did when I was 17. snort!

  48. Wookie's and Teddy's Dad
    3:28 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Happy Double Birthday to the Alaskans — today and tomorrow. And I bet the earthquake was just Mother Nature’s way of sending her very own early birthday greeting to the birthday girls.

  49. BearSpiritDog
    3:33 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Wookie&Teddy’s Dad: LOL.

    Wose: Heh, heh. Kudos to You!

  50. Masquers
    3:56 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Interesting…your recent paycheck resembling that of your teenage years? What does this say about the economy…I ask youse.

  51. Barb & Maggie
    3:57 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Wose, so you really didn’t quit your job, you just changed departments. The deli department has to be one of the more difficult departments at a grocery store. I know I couldn’t do it at my age.

  52. O'Howlers
    4:00 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Wose, The 2014 Iditarod was supposed to be their romantic getaway for their 30th. There was fun, but no romance.
    This weekend was already paid for, so if it ends up cancelled, they are that much more in debt for nothing. Oh, and even more in debt for this water pump thing. There will not be a reschedule. Every time they plan a trip, bad things happen.

  53. Wose-The Small and Meek
    4:53 pm on September 26th, 2014

    B&M, I was going to quit, but the manager asked me to hang in, so I agreed. I may be trained as a cashier, which was the position I originally applied for.

    Masquers, Yes, it is pretty embarrassing, isn’t it?

    I am wondering how LouLou and Sammie are.

    Also, I am wondering how Wolfie, BooBear, and Karen are.

  54. T.C.
    5:06 pm on September 26th, 2014

    I am here! I am an excellent hider!!

    We finally have water, but we were strongly advised to have a new weel dug. Gasp! Mommy says we can’t afford that no way.

  55. Wose-The Small and Meek
    5:14 pm on September 26th, 2014

    T.C., I am glad you are there!

  56. Basil and Sage
    5:14 pm on September 26th, 2014

    T.C. – see, we tried to tell everyone that you were just over visiting with us while the commotion was going on, but they wouldn’t listen.
    Hey, thanks for the great game of Fuzzy Mouse – it’s always more fun with extra paws.

    Howlers’ Mom – we feel your pain. Really, we do….

  57. T.C.
    5:21 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Well, not weel.

  58. Masquers
    5:39 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Dear TC: Paws crossed for your ‘rents that all plans go as planned.

  59. Barb & Maggie
    6:03 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Glad they found you T.C. Hope the folks can now go on their planned trip this weekend.

  65. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:52 pm on September 26th, 2014

    (((sigh!)))…Friday nights can be the loneliest on the blog….grunt!…My friend no longer has her friday nights out after work because of her new-ish job being in a new location…sniff!…This really makes her grumpy sometimes…sniff!…Like tonight.

  66. Masquers
    10:15 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Sorry, Riö. I fell asleep at the controls.

  67. Masquers

    Baseball! Tomorrow night we go to a game! There will be beer and hotdogs for sure.

    Rio – how is your Friend’s pug-eye?

  71. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:49 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Tupper!…Her eye is fine today…snort!…She thinks something she is terribly allergic too got into it right before she left the busy-place yesterday…grunt!…Her eyes are her weakest link. So they are very susceptible to things….gah!

  72. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:55 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Book!..My Dear Friend Stover, we know you are busy with your brother right now, but we have to say to you me and my friend are totally obsessed with Karen Joy Fowler at this moment – her book is undefinable. Her writing style is amazing. Please. Please. Do no read anything about the book before you start the Story. Not even the back of the actual book cover jacket…snort!…Knowing nothing is the best experience you can have during this story….heh!..We of course are not nearly finished. Someone cannot focus at all tonight. What is wrong with her eyesight?..sniff!grunt!

  73. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:59 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Game!…Well, we will give up on reading and watch baseball instead, even though we are DYING to KNOW what will happen next in the book we are reading and Stover also has in her possession…snuffle!…I look forward to Stover’s perspective on the family story…wheeze!

  74. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:23 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Book!…I have to share this because it is something my friend knows first-paw…heh!…This is taken from “We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves”…snort!…Great writing!

    “My mother always said it’s very rude when people who can’t sleep wake up people who can. My father had a different perspective. “You can’t imagine,” he’d told her once over a bleary breakfast when he’d poured his orange juice into his coffee and then salted it as well. “You can’t imagine the white-hot fury someone who can’t sleep feels toward the beautiful dreamer beside him.”

  75. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:46 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Game!…Back to baseball…heh!…The Rockies are winning so far…chuffle!….3 ta something less right now over San Diego. Another West Coast late night series. Totally unfair to me and SiberH – this being the last month of baseball for our team…snort!grumble!

  76. Staff
    11:54 pm on September 26th, 2014

    Staff!….I think you can read this book as so far and we are more than half way through it, there is no violence but I suspect I do not know all yet..no, it can go anywhere from here, but i think it is a very wonderful story so far…snort!..I love her writing style…i cannot see. good night.

    12:42 am on September 27th, 2014

    Thanks Rio,
    I might have to try it. I have been reading books I do not care for lately. They may be free on Bookbub but that does not mean I have to finish them

    Night all… We are much better here after our day under the quilt. We will be even better tomorrow I know.

    Here is what I was doing today

    Playing in my quilt room. I gave up on organizing the mess in the spare bedroom and decided to have some fun. Now all I have to do is quilt it.

    While I have your attention I’d like to send you a special pre-birthday wish for the best day ever.
    Tomorrow is a day to have your cake and eat it too. Maybe a birthday brunch with mimosas is in the cards for you.
    Whatever comes your way I hope it is WONDERFUL!
