Aquifers and Us

We crossed the Arroyo Seco Bridge, not even a trickle of water underneath. “How many aquifers have we got, big guy? One and one alone.” And soon we were in Pottsdale, one of the nicest parts of the Valley, with big houses, fancy stores, and lots of golf courses. “So goddamn green,” Bernie said. “Green comes from blue, and we’re running out of blue. How simple can it be?”

Green comes from blue? That’s what Bernie called simple? Just another example of his amazing brainpower.

    Morning, everyone! OH, WE are with y’all in spirit, thoughts and pawrayers today. Abby over the bridge cantering freely is a beautiful picture but misty for us here.
    “Green comes from blue”, wowser, that Bernie isn’t only smart, he’s a philosopher.
    Have a philosophical Phriday 🙂

    Oh, and A.J., thanks for your comments last evening/this morning about our trails together. Dog bless us, everyone.

    Good morning HOH and everyone.

    We thought A.J.’s comparison was excellent. And so true.

    Barb is off soon to meet up with Shannon for her birthday lunch. She was so impressed with Barb’s car after the detailing that she requested that for her birthday. So we are doing that today too.

    Beautiful day here, storms coming this weekend. Boo.

    We expressed our sadness over Howler’s loss at the end of yesterday’s posts.

    Philosophy from Bernie, Pure Love & Admiration from Chet.
    Encouragement from AJ in the Wee Small Hours of the Morning.
    Sad News from the O’Howlers. Abby Run Fast & Free over the Bridge.

    Thank You Herd of Hounds for your Morning Blessing.
    Hugs to All in Our Plunderer Pack. With a Wag of Our Tails we are off to Greet a Brand New Day.

    O’Howlers, so sorry about Abby. I know you gave her a good life.

    AJ, thank you.

    But water isn’t blue. Bernie should move to Michigan. We have lots of water.

    Good morning all.

    B! Look…Harper Lee’s Pulitzer prize-winning masterwork, “To Kill A Mockingbird” available now for the 1st time as an e-book:

  8. Wose-the small and meek
    9:37 am on July 11th, 2014


    O’Howlers: I am very sad upon reading the news about Abby. She will now run free as she did in her younger days, mane and tai flying in the wind.

    Thank you, A.J.for your encouraging words. I still believe you have a book in you. You write with such feeling and insight. (whispering) don’t forget you have friends in NY who proofread and edit. : )

    Sammie: Please take the road to good health. I can’t bear to know you have a heart murmur.

    Yesterday I found out My psych is giving up her private practice. sniff
    Change is sometimes a very hard thing for me.

    I don’t believe I am giving away any spoilers here. Question to all four and two-leggeds on this here blog~ Bacon; crispy or chewy. Wosengrizz love ours chewy!!

  9. Wose-the small and meek
    9:39 am on July 11th, 2014

    Bear, Isn’t that exciting? We here have been waiting for the e-book ever since we got our nook 4 years ago. It is one of my favorite books ever! And the movie! What more can I say about a perfect film?!

  10. Herd of Hounds
    9:49 am on July 11th, 2014

    Wose, mom likes her bacon turkey. WE aren’t picky, as long as it’s bacon 🙂

  11. Zoe
    9:49 am on July 11th, 2014

    And another thing…I just found out that one, or maybe it is two, of my lower front teeth is or are infected. It didn’t hurt, said the dentist, because they are draining and just go down into my digestive system. Isn’t that a lovely thought? Two of them will come out today,,and then in a month I will get some more lower teeth.

    So, for the celebration, I will probably drool, sip liquids and look really weird. Golden age my foot.

  12. B.Stover
    9:50 am on July 11th, 2014

    Bear: Thank you. I’ll have to check it out on Amazon. Scout is one of my favorite characters.

    Rose: I like the movie version as well.

  13. BearSpiritDog
    9:58 am on July 11th, 2014

    Wose: Yes! And one of Our Favorite Actors…Gregory Peck.
    Love the Book but must say…our Preference is the 50 Year Anniversary Edition.
    Sorry about your doctor giving up her private practice. These changes are never easy.
    About the Bacon…Crispy is My Choice. In Fact…You just reminded me…It’s Breakfast Time!

    MollyPop’s Mom: Paws crossed Sammy will agree to a Healthy Doggy Diet. We here on the Blog will do our best to encourage her.

    Zoe: Yep. And I love how you expressed it once before…this age isn’t Golden it’s Puce. Just read too that only classy females get that color right.

  14. Wose-the small and meek
    10:03 am on July 11th, 2014

    Zoe, Heh! I lost most of my teeth before I was in my twenties, and helped put my dentist’s daughters through college. That’s a lot of teeth!

  15. Herd of Hounds
    10:08 am on July 11th, 2014

    Zoe, drooling and sipping are acceptable, just don’t gum the guests 🙂

    Today is Fryday, which reminds me of delicious tuna meals and salmon ball snacks, leisurely naps in the summer sun and looking forward to a reflective weekend by the water – ZenKat

    10:39 am on July 11th, 2014

    Sounds wonderful, Masquers!

    I have a small and meek question. Why isn’t Bernie shown on the cover of TOV?

  19. Wose-the small and meek
    10:41 am on July 11th, 2014

    Bear, I love that picture!! Whenever I went on vacation at work, I taped that picture to my computer screen.

  20. Tupper and Gilly
    10:43 am on July 11th, 2014

    Howlers – Mama cried upon reading your post this morning. Seems she was dreaming of riding her beloved horse last night and there was another horse running alongside. (((Sniff)))

    AJ – thanks for your post. Lots to ponder.

    Staff – the Storyteller says he feels your stapled pain. And Gramp is SO relieved that your surgery didn’t mimic his. Glad you are home and able to laugh.

    Zoe – oh my my my. Puce indeed.

    Howlers, so sorry to hear about your loss. Never easy.

  23. O'Howlers
    11:53 am on July 11th, 2014

    That Bernie. Always the smartest guy in the room.
    We love the cover of TOV, especially the Wagon Wheel. Heh!

    Good morning. New beginnings here. We are getting used to new beginnings, which in itself is getting old. Huh. Let’s get Bernie’s take on that!

  24. O'Howlers
    11:59 am on July 11th, 2014

    And we too are thinking on ML. Hope all goes well for her mom. Dear Dog, that girl has been put thru the ringer this year. She deserves a break. Oh yes she does.

  25. Herd of Hounds
    12:10 pm on July 11th, 2014

    OH, WE agree with y’all about ML deserving a break. She has had more drama in her life than “Peyton Place”. Time fro a change, maybe “Looney Tunes” for her or even “Laugh In” reruns. All kidding aside, You know you are in our pawrayers.

  26. Staff
    12:16 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Thanks for the thoughts AJ. It seems easier, somehow, to look at life as our own personal Iditarod. And the plunderers are our team. Yay TEAM! I feel like I am on a hill right now. I wonder if ML feels like she is doing a freefall down the steps? Maybe Rose feels like the Dalzell Gorge right now.

    Hang on Rose! Take it easy now…

  27. Siber-H
    12:16 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Chet’s post this morning can also be said about the greater Albuquerque area.

    Fellow Sibers and family, We are sorry you lost Abby but very thankful you gave her a good home.

    AJ, Thank you for your post. We always enjoy reading what you write.

  28. Siber-H
    12:22 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Wose, Crispy.
    We hate that you will be having to change doctors now. That is always hard but sometimes it can work out really well.

    Zoe, Mom has had the same thing happen to her teeth and has always been thankful they never hurt. In a few days, you will fell a whole lot better when the infection has cleared your body.

  29. BearSpiritDog
    12:23 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Hounds: Peyton Place? Long Time Ago…VERY Scandalous at the time.

  30. Masquers
    12:34 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Staff: On a hill…is that good?
    Rose: eeek!
    We here agree…AJ’s simile to the Iditarod somehow makes it seem more bearable somehow.

  31. BearSpiritDog
    12:46 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Staff: Yark! Noticing the Aliy Cam was from 2012 NOT this last year. A 2014 Video would be showing a barren trail with Rocks & Dirt…little to no snow.

    Through all the Trials & Tribulations we know there is Nome at the end of the trail, and the Pleasure of our Fellow Travelers along the way.

  32. Herd of Hounds
    1:15 pm on July 11th, 2014

    WE think that Aily Cam pix were really scary, even with snow. If we ate lunch, we’d have lost it 🙁
    A.J. and the other mushers are brave beyond beliefe.

    2:17 pm on July 11th, 2014

    AJ!…sob!sob!sob!…His thoughts brought tears to my pug-eyes. What a great analogy about our team of Plunderers..sniffle!…And dibs on riding in the sled…heh!

  35. BearSpiritDog
    2:51 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Tupper&Gilly: How Right You Are!
    Thought of Youse yesterday afternoon…Our Beautiful White Butterfly (my how he has grown in these past 5 years!), a Hummingbird and several Honeybees partaking of the sweet Nectar of the Gods at the Lavender bed.
    What a nice picture it would have made! As it is, it’s only a Picture filed away Under Wonderful in our Memory.

  36. Masquers
    2:59 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Riö: Rider on the sled? I don’t know about that. But then this kat is not nearly as (foolhardy) brave as you are.
    I much purrfer to read AJ’s thrilling narratives after the fact.

  37. Riö -The Evil Pug
    3:06 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Maskers!…Riding in the Sled beats pulling the sled up and down those mountains any day…snort!

  38. c.hobbit
    3:44 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Rio: you should ask MPM about riding in the sled. Heh.

  39. Staff
    4:34 pm on July 11th, 2014

    I will gladly let you ride the sled when it is my turn Rio. Especially right now.

    Masquers, about the hill, it is just a little tough right now. It gets better every day. Soon I will be at the top and hopefully there will be a nice smooth snow filled ride down the other side. WhooOOOOooooOOoo

  40. Masquers
    4:37 pm on July 11th, 2014

    “Green comes from blue?” The fricking frackers are in our neighborhood and they are using our blue to make greenbacks. But that’s a story for another time.

    O’Howlers: Peace to Abby. I’m glad Abby and you guys found each other and had lovin’ good times together. I bet life at the O’Howlers was paradise for Abby.

    AJ: Sniff, honk!

    4:54 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Awesome, I would like to kick those fricking frackers where the sun don’t shine.

    And for all of youse friends, here is a picture of our Abby Gal with me me me. We were very good gal pals, she and I. And yes, she did have a lovely, peaceful, easy end of her life here at Howling Arabians these past 8 years, though she was only half-Arab (the half you couldn’t see! Heh heh!)

  44. Riö -The Evil Pug
    4:55 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Fracked!…Dawson, my town is over-run with freakin’ frackers…grunt!…We’ve had two earthquakes within one month. Coincidence? You tell me….sniff!sniff!

  45. Attorney Meashka
    4:58 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Rio, no coincidence, believe you me. It is amazing that this is permitted when none of us We the People want it.
    And Rio, Spencer is coming to Denver, you lucky pug you!!!

  46. Siber-H
    5:49 pm on July 11th, 2014

  52. Wose-the small and meek
    6:11 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Attorney Meash, That is a wonderful photo of you and Abby. You are both so beautiful. sniff

    And that is a beautiful photo of the lovely Nana in front of that really kool looking library.

    6:11 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Attorney Meashka: Whose water is it anyways! Every one wants to be the first fricking fracker to be able to ship all this gas to China, never mind our water. The government subsidizes the frackers and …wait!…(climbing off the soap box). Don’t get me started. Let me just say to our governments, there are many many opportunities to be had in the renewable and solar energy fields and it would be nice to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem.
    I love the picture of Abby and you!

  54. Herd of Hounds

    Zoe, beautiful picture – makes me cry.

  57. Mollypop's Mom
    6:25 pm on July 11th, 2014

    We visited Fat-Sam-I-am and were feeling sorry for her. She had only one half cup of kibble for breakfast and was going to have another half cup at 4 PM for dinner. She seemed so hungry constantly sniffing the treat drawer. But ha ha. When she got her 4 PM dinner she sniffed it and walked away. She wasn’t wanting kibble, she was wanting all that other stuff that she got all the time.

  58. Barb & Maggie
    6:27 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Love the library photo. What a quaint inviting looking place. The lady standing in front of it looks pretty good too.

    You are right about Abby, Howlers. She was a good looking old mare, but not Araby looking at all.

  59. Wose-the small and meek

    BearSpiritDog: Love the local library and the path leading to it.

    Princess Sammie: You have been found out!

    Zoe: I had to go around for awhile with several teeth missing. They were in Vancouver and I was here. I did not smile at all for several days but then I said the heck with it. The looks I got!

    Some of you old timers will remember the “teeth lady”. I can’t remember her name but she itemized each time Chet spoke about teeth in his books and Chet posted it. Yawn! I’m feeling sleepy.

    Oh Ho, from the annals of history! Leave it to Dawson!
    Daddy Dawg on the road to Chi-town to get the oldest g-son (mom’s favorite but don’t tell anyone). He should be here on Monday and OH!, what fun we will have!

  64. Masquers
    7:39 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Love that foto of Zoe in her Iditarod bib with Mac & Mattie.
    Look at the adoring look she is getting from Mac.
    Rose: That was a very loving thing you did. sniff.

  65. BooBear
    7:40 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Poor Princess Sammie! Dieting is no fun and it isn’t her fault that she packed on a few pounds. Mom likes all of us with a few extra pounds so we get to eat like piggies.

  66. Herd of Hounds
    7:45 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Mom wants to know how her butt won’t fit in her pants but her rings slide off her fingers. NO FAIR!

  67. BearSpiritDog
    7:50 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Princess Sammy: What do YOU have to say about all this Die-t Business? Let’s hear YOUR Side of the Story.

  68. Tupper and Gilly
    7:55 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Poor Sammie. Just so you know, we get a half cup of kibble twice a day too – and we are way bigger than you.
    We get snacks of green beans and raw carrots. We also love apples, melon and parsnips, but we don’t get them as often.

    Hey, we have a question for discussion. Why does “the exception prove the rule”? Doesn’t the exception mean the rule is wrong?

  69. Mollypop's Mom
    7:58 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Barb, you and the group met Sammy in March. This is only four months later and she has ballooned up, for a small dog.

  70. Barb & Maggie
    8:03 pm on July 11th, 2014

    MPM, She was not underweight back in March.

    Was Lois the tooth lady’s name?

  71. Mollypop's Mom
    8:05 pm on July 11th, 2014

    T&G, the exception, no parking on Sunday, shows the rule to be that parking is allowed the other days.

  72. Masquers
    8:07 pm on July 11th, 2014

    T&G: My guess is..the exception to the rule proves that the rule exists.

  73. Tupper and Gilly
    8:12 pm on July 11th, 2014

    MPM -we have been fascinated with bats lately, watching them in the back yard every night. In a discussion today, someone mentioned that bats are the only flying mammal and the comment was made about the exception proving the rule of mammals. As do platypuses as the only egg laying mammal.
    It just made us stop and think about the phrase.

  74. Masquers
    8:17 pm on July 11th, 2014

    Save Sam! Bear is very concerned about Sammie and her weight gain. He doesn’t want one of his favorite little blog-mates to have health issues because of overeating.
    Let us hope the little post-it notes on the cupboard & fridge will do the trick.
    How about walking. Is the hawk still a problem?

    Will have to go back and read AJ’s post.

    My thoughts are with Abby. Hope you and Liz-Beth become best buddies.

    Howlers: We got your girl. She is happy and restored to prime. She thanks you for a wonderful life. Because of the kindness you showed her, she arrived on this side of the Bridge with more happy memories than not. Dawson, the pup not the person is happy to meet the second biggest dog she has ever seen. She and Liz-Beth have been paling around with Abby along with the Howlers that have gone on before.

    Draco Malfoy is a bully in the HP movies. From what I’ve seen of the Blunt character, he seems to be the victim. Hope it’s On Demand.

    By the way, ABCFamily is showing all eight HP movies this weekend beginning with Chamber of Secrets which is on now.

This makes a huge difference, let me tell youse…wheeze!…There is plenty of time for the Rockies to choke and gag and spit this game right down the crapper…weep!weep!…But we will try and have faith they will hold on to the lead…gurgle!

    I haven’t read the entire day yet, so please forgive any errors.
    First, I stole this from Nana and believe it with all my heart.

    Mom’s surgery went well. Now we wait. Again. Shades of Melanie. Over a month since diagnosis and no treatment. Then home and one aggravation after another, til I went off on my niece, who lives with mother and can’t be bothered to come out of her room to sit with her grandmother while I go for prescriptions. And food which her brother, who also lives with mother, could not be bothered to take his grandmother to get before running off to spend the weekend with his boyfriend. Does NO ONE get that grandmother a) doesn’t drive b) has cancer c) has had two surgeries this month d)is not a spring chicken e)…… somebody stop me pleeeease.

    Sorry, you might notice that I am a little stressed. Maybe more than a little. Or more than that. I think I should just put myself to bed now. Tomorrow has got to be better. (Please?)

    ML: Quilt. Now. As Luna would say. Wyatt is waiting to be your pillow. In fact, we all are. It seems being a great pillow comes naturally for us. Head bumps and prayers.

    We need to turn in early tonight. We have a big day planned tomorrow that includes cahoots, antics and going rogue.

I really do…sniff!…My friend knows how “it is all up to ME” because the rest of the family sucks and sponges off of, but never really helps or cares…sniff!…Boy, do we know first paw about that crap. Just remember, you are there for a reason and the reason is your mother right now. If not for you, Who?…wuffle! …Beau will say pug prayers to give you strength to endure this time in your life…sniffle!

    Thanks for the heads up Wolfie. That moon is humongous!

    Has anyone else read the Mrs. Pollifax books? Not Rio’s style I am sure. I have always liked Dorothy Gilman’s characters. They are so full of love and caring for others. Anyway those books are taking me through this painful time. I am on the 4th one right now. I read the 5th one 4th so am a little out of order. No matters, they are all fun.

The Books
