Another Great Pop-Up Quiz Answer

Remember the pop-up quiz? If not, scroll down to the May 8 post. Kirby T. Penworthy won the prize but there were lots of great answers. Here’s one from Gina Bridgeman.

This is the kind of thing that makes baseball great (besides the way it tastes, Chet might say). I mean you don’t see Eli Manning kicking a field goal in the waning seconds of a game, do you? Darnell McDonald and Chris Davis are just the latest baseball players to become the main characters in a non-pitchers pitching duel. And Cobb and Sisler were among the first. In Boston on Sunday, McDonald, in as a pinch runner, and Davis, a designated hitter, became pitching rivals when their bullpens emptied out in what would end up a 17-inning, 9-6 Red Sox loss. Cobb and Sisler, with those great batting averages, apparently faced each other twice, and both of them fared pretty well. At least it would have been tough for the manager to walk out to the mound to take either one out of the game—both were also managers of their teams! Wouldn’t you love to be able to go back in time to see just one of those games?

    Good morning, y’all! I really like Gina’s answer alot! (Sorry, Bee. I just can’t help it!!!) I can see where it would have been a hard choice for Spence, because that answer was great. I especially like the part about how baseball tastes. I’m not sure I’ve ever tasted a baseball, but lacrosse balls are pretty good!

    Good morning Kirby and Congrats, Gina. Are you a Lurker? I don’t think I know that name.

    After morning coffee, we will be heading out for errands.

    This is the big wedding day. Can’t believe it is finally here. Best wishes to the bride and groom, and hope Melanie and Zoe have a great time today. Hope we get pictures and at least a glimpse of Leonard’s part of the ceremony.

    Another good answer to the pop quiz. Someone here was lucky to get it right, let alone embellish on it.

    Oh, Happy Wedding Day! A Joyous Occasion for All.
    Wishing the Bride & Groom a Lifetime of Happiness.

    I’m heading back to Sam’s today. After our Mother’s Day brunch I will return so I can hopefully read outdoors, if it doesn’t rain.

    I hope the Big Wedding is rain-free.

    Mom here again. Going home today, sob! I am looking forward to seeing the pooches though.

    Kirby my man, you take on me also with “alot”. Grrrr. (but I don’t really growl)

    Best to the wedding folks today. Later, from home, sigh.

    11:14 am on May 12th, 2012

    I would like to go back in time and see a lot of games.
    Gina, That is a good answer.

    Staff, I read the article on the Twins…”Wait until Next year” as so many of us baseball fans say. That keep us us going from season to season.

    ROSE, There is a brand new book, “Pinstripe Empire”, out on the history of the Yankees from even before Babe Ruth. All the customer reviews on Amazon are giving it five stars so far. We are going to order it soon.

    ok, I am through with baseball for right now. umm What time am I suppose to be at the wedding?

  10. BearSpiritDog
    11:34 am on May 12th, 2012

  11. Rose
    11:52 am on May 12th, 2012

    SiberH: Thanks for the heads up on the book! The Prof and I always go to B&N on the weekend, so I will keep an eye open (after I tango at the wedding with Masquers, and maybe just a dip from you!).

    Rio: sniff, sob, sniff. Your maw may not write you, but I’m sure there is a special place in her heart for you…..

  42. Snowhook Bella
    6:37 pm on May 12th, 2012

    I love the cake topper and the cake stands.

    It looks like SiberH and AJ are keeping busy at the dipping post. I’ve been through the line a couple of times already.

  47. Snowhook Bella
    7:14 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Rio: I was wondering when you would show up to the wedding. Did you get a ride with Wookie? You look great.

  48. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:20 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Chauffer!…I had my Chauffer drive me…snort!….Who knew Beau was moonlighting as a driver to replenish is wasteland of a treat budget?….heh!heh!

  49. Snowhook Bella
    7:26 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Driving Mister Wheezy.

    I suspect there is a lot about Beau we don’t know.

    Uh-oh. It looks as though Natasha is getting a bit jealous of all the dipping of others that SiberH is doing. I think she just made the slit a little higher in her dress. This could get good.

  50. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi
    7:31 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Oh – Natasha is STUFFED. The Mango Chicken vas vonderful and the tortellini vith peas… Yum.

    Rio: I’m tall enough to get you a bowl of beer, but I need to see your ID first.

    The Storyteller looks very handsome in his wedding finery. What a great reception—smiles all around and it looks like the Professor and cat-dog, Masquers are warming up. I’m going to rest my feet for at least the first song.

  56. BearSpiritDog

  58. Alice M. Johnson
    8:39 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Wow, I am impressed that Rose saw Sammy hiding under that table the way she is. Abbie and I are in there with her. It is dangerous out there on the dance floor with all those dippy people and dogs.

  59. Staff
    8:40 pm on May 12th, 2012

    We just sent Melanie 8 more Mercantile projects. Two from me and 6 from Dawson. Man she is going to be busy when she gets home exhausted from the part-ee.

  60. Rose
    8:48 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Rio: You look soooo handsome!

    Natasha: Of course you know my hat and purse were both picked out by the sparkly Belle Starr.

    SiberH: Thank you for the dog trot and the very sensuous dip.

    Masquers: You tango marvelously….I’m still blushing!

  61. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:53 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Natasha! Get away from Rose’s hat.
    Let’s go for a walk in the woods.

  65. Rose
    9:00 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Oh, I think it’s time for the limbo.

  66. Riö –The Evil Pug
    9:06 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Rose!…Can you pour me a drink??….heh!heh!…snort!

    9:20 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Wow, Rio. What a spectacular piece. Love the use of pearls. I too believe in dreams. In fact you friend might have just stated the plunderers ‘mission statement’

    Lovely work.

    So will this be on the mercantile?

  70. BearSpiritDog
    9:29 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Rio: It’s a doggone good thing your Friend is preoccupied with making her projects for the Spring Boutique. You and Beau were able to slip away unnoticed for the Big Celebration. Looks like this latest Fab Creation has caught the eye of someone we know. She loves the verse too.
    Buffet! This sure makes up for last night, doesn’t it.

  71. Riö –The Evil Pug
    9:33 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Bear!…The buffet was excellant, but I’m still waiting for a bowl of bear or a shot of shine…grunt!…Where are my pals Wookie and Brother Redbone when you really need them?…huffle!

  72. BearSpiritDog
    9:50 pm on May 12th, 2012

    If Macy can’t be here I doubt if Brother Redbone will show. Wookie is most likely supervising one of those Quilting affairs.
    I know everyone is hustling to get ready for the Spring Boutique. Melanie is going to be busy when she returns home…Rebecca too.

  73. Snowhook Bella
    9:50 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Rio: Because I’m in a festive mood, I put a curly crazy straw in the bowl of beer for you.

  74. Riö –The Evil Pug
    9:50 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Huh? … Bowl of Bear?…heh!…Should have been, Bowl of Beer…snort!

    Project!…My friend is working on another project, but she is having trouble with it and calling it quits tonight…heh!…What do I care? I am at a grand party scarfing up whatever food I see in sight….burp!…Where did that watering can go to? Oooooh Roooseee!..heh!

  75. Riö –The Evil Pug
    9:54 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Straw!…Rebecca, you have seen my mouth and my teeth, have you not?…snort!…Just get me a bowl of beer, forget the straw. I can hardly breath as it is without having to snuff up some liquid through a straw…heh!…Woooooo!…What a wedding party!…Wheres lil’ Sammie hiding out now?…sniff!

  76. Siber-H

    10:09 pm on May 12th, 2012

    hi everyone – just getting back to the hotel from the big wedding. It was wonderful from beginning to end. The location was lovely – a little clearing in the woods with chairs for the guests making two semi circles on either side of the aisle. There were butterflies flitting all over the place. A string quartet played lovely mimic to accompany the processional and celebratory recessional.
    The tent for the reception was lovely – there was not one thing that anyone could say “it should have been”.
    But we are exhausted. Been there, did the wedding, danced our feet off and partied with the best of them, but now we are throwing in the towel and crawling into bed.
    Hope the rest of you have a grand time at the party. Thanks for the dance Siber, and Belle Starr- you never looked lovlier. Rio – if you have that bowl of beer, you make sure Beau drives home.
    Good night all – we will talk tomorrow

  78. Princess Sam

Thanks for sending photos our way, it was wonderful!…Woooo!…Lil Sammie and I are under the tables on Floor Patrol…snort!… Lots of stuff still up top and we are hoping some lousy drunk drops his plate for us…heh!heh!…Watch out Sammie, don’t get hit…sniff!

    Beautiful wedding pics. Very handsome groom, best man and Royal’s dad. Bride is gorgeous as is her new MIL!! Way to go Melanie.

    Rebecca, we promise to get our items sent to you early next week. Waiting for the pics to come back from Melanie. Guess she had other things on her mind!!!!!

    Rio, I think there will be a rush of people trying to buy one of your friend’s items. Bet they are all gone the 1st day.

    Mr. Husky and O Howlers,
    Here is some info about this years litter of puppies at the Denali Park in Alaska. Should be fun to watch on the puppy cam.

  82. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:31 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Puss N’ Boots!… I have a feeling youse guys are fast enough shoppers that you will get some of my friends twirled paper…heh!heh!

  83. Gus & BooBear
    10:48 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Rio, we are certainly hoping that we will. Mom is quite the shopper and there’s no stopping her where Snowhook is concerned!

  84. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:53 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Bear!…I love to hear that!…Woooo!…That is why my friend will keep making projects all month long for shoppers like you who will buy anything to support Snowhook!…heh!…Even twirled paper and glue…snort!snort!

    10:54 pm on May 12th, 2012

    Silver, the dad of those puppies, is a legend in the Yukon Quest so watching the puppy cam wil be extra special for us.

    What a wedding, what a reception. My feet hurt from dancing and I’m sure Rose’s neck is feeling the strain of her hat. Luckily, I did manage to convince a certain Kat to give her a neck message.

  92. Snowhook Bella
    1:02 am on May 13th, 2012

    Rio: I was so distracted by the buffet, the dipping, the happy couple, the beautiful mother of the groom, Siber dancing with Natasha, the band, a certain hat and watering can, and all the wonderful wedding happenings that I forgot to mention how beautiful your friend’s latest creation is—the color is beatiful. I feel honored that you and your friend dedicate so much time and talent on behalf of Snowhook—that goes for all youse.

    Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic however ,
    I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My website covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you are interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!
