Auction (More)(Revised)

“Wow,” says Spence, “I think we have to say how impressed we are.”

“Absolutely,” says Admin. “If the Plunderers were running the country … “

“That could only happen in right-side-up world.”

“I’m ready! Plunderers rule!”

And here’s the link to the auction site. Still open for bidding!

“Hey,” says Spence, “you got enough sleep, huh?”

    Plunderers running the country…now there’s an idea! Who wants to be president?

    Good Morning!
    I’ll have mine

    Good Morning B. and Stover!

    Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

    The Plunderer Party…How interesting!

    I know it’s a long weekend and all, but it’s time for Bear to be on the Friend of the Month picture!

    Rose: Perhaps it was just a dream…..

  7. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    9:20 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Yes, indeed, we are a force to be reckoned with!

    I am proud to be one of us!

  8. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    9:24 am on July 3rd, 2011

    (whispering) I wonder if Admin could add a daily link to the auction site?

  9. dawson
    9:25 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Even Admin is impressed with the auction. Success!!
    Time to go home.
    New Bids…
    I think I was sleepwalking last night. Did I email newbids?

  10. Melanie
    9:36 am on July 3rd, 2011

    A sleep walking Dawson . . . hmmmm. . .

    Yes! The Plunderer Party! We certainly know how to party. snicker.

    I’m top bid on one thing so far. Not telling ANYONE which one it is!

    One of the PR pics came out for Hamlet.

  11. dawson
    9:38 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Dang it!
    I had the Arc…for less than an hour.
    Good news is…I still have the hotdog hot pads!
    Whooo Hoooo!

  12. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:51 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Fan!… How come nobody wants my friends Fan?…sniff!snort!…She worked so hard on it. Do you need to see another photo that shows the bling better??? Is that it?…grunt!

    War!….Everybody better check on the Items they thought they had because Dawson just upped a ton of bids this morning. Including two of mine….grump!

  13. Rose
    9:53 am on July 3rd, 2011

    I guess I hadn’t been totally awake yet. I said good morning to B. Stover twice. I meant to say good morning to B. AND Bear.

    Melanie: Great pic!

    Bear: It was not a dream! You are the FOTM, and your wise, handsome face needs to take its proper place on the blog. GRUMP!
    (I’m starting to sound a little like our grumpy friend, Rio)

  14. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:55 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Clarkson!…IS MINE!…heh!heh!..snort! (after the bid is updated that is)

  15. Tupper and Gilly
    10:06 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Good morning all.
    We are with Wolfie the Wise and Wonderful – please, Spence and Admin – would you include a daily link to the auction site on the blog?
    (we’ll share the toffee that we ARE going to win!)

    Rio – it’s ok – you can have the picture of the handsome and talented YSAS – we get the real thing (when he comes to town)

  16. BearSpiritDog
    10:10 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Melanie: That is a great picture!

    The ARC is up to $250! We are predicting it will go to $500!

    Our Auction is a HUGE Success. Only problem here is we are quickly being outbid and the “auction allotment fund” is running low. sob (Dawson, about those potholders…)

  17. dawson
    10:14 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Gee Whiz!
    I thought I could sneak in there and get the Spanish Fan cheap. And then there’s Rio shooting his mouth off about it. Now somebodies going out bid me. Dang it! Just for that I’m upping my bid on Clarkson. Hmmmm… smoooooch, you are mine baby! I’m checking on those hot dog hot pads (potholders). I better still have them!

  18. dawson
    10:17 am on July 3rd, 2011

    I’m going to be a little late for work today…

  19. Snowhook Bella
    10:26 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Dawson: I can imagine your bid on YSAS’ photo somehow getting lost by one of the Bid Keepers…

  20. dawson
    10:32 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Snowhook Bella: Good point…I will double check my bid.

  21. Melanie
    10:49 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Dawson, you have to get what you are bidding quiet!!

    laughing here about Bidkeepers!

    Update at the top. The link is up.

  22. Barb & Maggie
    10:50 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Dawson, STOP BIDDING on the hot pads! That’s your sister, for dawg’s sake. She will give a set for Christmas. Those are mine!

    Oh, and a friendly Sunday good morning to eveyone else!

  23. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    10:53 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Good morning everybody. We just zoomed past $1500. We are now at $1501.30!!! (yes, someone is placing bids down to the last 30 cents). And as Bear Spirit Dog already noted, the ARC is up to $250.00. And almost every item now has received multiple bids. Just keep them coming, fast and furious. Wookie

  24. Siber-H
    11:16 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Chet, Thank you for donating the ARC to the auction and for letting us use the blog to discuss it and for your support for Snowhook.

    From last night: I didn’t know we could bid against ourselves. That is cool, but the way the auction is going, that may not be necessary.

    It is time for our Bear to be up there as this month’s Friend of Chet winner.

  25. Melanie
    11:23 am on July 3rd, 2011

    We’re waiting around for the storms to come through. Franklin does NOT like thunder.
    After that it should clear up and into the Pool!

  26. B.Stover
    11:26 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Since there are several bids on my story, “The Deserter,” I’m going to have it “published” by SharedBooks so that it will have a proper cover. What fun!

  27. Mollypop
    11:29 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Yesterday’s Pet Parade was great fun! Here’s Tyb The Patriot getting ready to march.

  28. Mollypop
    11:33 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Here’s Tyb proudly marching along the parade route. I wish Mom could take better pictures. Where’s Melanie when we need her.

  29. Mollypop
    11:42 am on July 3rd, 2011

    And finally – the Marauding Goats!

  30. Staff
    11:43 am on July 3rd, 2011

    Gosh TYB looks so handsome in those pictures. Even if Mollypop cut off his nose. It is almost enough to make a kat lover turn to dogs!

    Don’t tell Alice or Abbie

  31. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:01 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Staff!… So the photo’s of me didn’t do it for you?…snort!

    Clarkson!….So far I am the owner of Clarkson!….Wooooo!Wheeeee!…honk!

  32. Melanie
    12:10 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    What a handsome dog!! (so are you, Riö, in your own unique way)

    (strike) The goats are cute!

    Pouring rain here. MollyPop, did this come down from you and Sam?

  33. Melanie
    12:11 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Sugarfritz!! I forgot to do the first strike correctly!

    Cough, cough, I didn’t really write that sentence about goats. Really . .

  34. dawson
    12:15 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Barb and Maggie: As if! Staff always holds a grudge at Christmas because I always forget her birthday which is 2 days prior.
    Carpola! I got distracted by work and forgot to bid on Clarkson.

  35. Melanie
    12:20 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    At this rate Clarkson’s going to go for $12! snicker

    Okay, I just put the link up again on my Facebook page. This time I chose Wölfie’s toffee for the picture! Also said it was the best we’ve ever tasted. Which is true.

  36. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    12:22 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Wow! The bids are still coming in, faster than marauding goats. The most incredible bidding contest seems to be those hot dog hot mats. It’s a veritable hot dog war out there. Way to go, Staff! Wookie

  37. Barb & Maggie
    12:24 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Dawson, Let’s strike a deal here. I will send Staff a card on December 23rd and sign your name, and you STOP BIDDING on the hot pads!

  38. Melanie
    12:28 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Is Dawson bidding against herself again?

    I just did some more PR work. When you attach the link to Facebook, you can choose which picture you want to go with it. So I went to YSAS’s page and put his picture up and a note that I was using him shamelessly to raise money for a good cause. I then went to Chet’s and did the link using the ARC.

  39. Barb & Maggie
    12:33 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    BTW, The cute little goaties are Boer Goats, which is the same breed as the daddy of our goats. Most often they are white with a brown head. Those are young ones – you can tell because their horns are still small. I bet everyone will be excited to learn that!

    Bad Dawson, mine, not yours, mine. (That is what Melanie says to the pack)

  40. OleyHowlers
    12:34 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Good Sunday everyone!

    Whats with Admin and Spence keeping Buddy-Boy up there way past his time? We want to see “Our Buddy” BearSpiritDog already.

    DRAT! When we went to bed, we were high bidders on many items. As of now, we are not…time to sneak into Mom’s wallet again.

  41. Kirby T. Penworthy
    12:37 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Hey, y’all! I just placed my first bid!!!! I’m so excited! (Whispering)But I’m not going to say what it’s for because I don’t want anyone getting ideas of outbidding me.

    I want to say thanks to whoever’s bidding on my book. Hey, Bee, maybe I should have my book published, too. ‘Cuz there’s nothing “proper” about my cover. It’s just something Mom stitched together.

  42. Gus & BooBear
    12:46 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    We posted a “Good Morning” hours ago and off that post went to the ethernet. Even risked a double dawson hoping it would show up, but noooooooooooooooo….

    Anyhoo, barely good morning, all and isn’t the auction fun??!!
    We have found that if you click on comments and leave that page with the comments showing, then click older/newer posts, it shows the next/former item with bids already showing. Just in case some of you not-so-techies wanted to know. Earlier, Mom had been outbid on a couple of the things she was winning last night. Time to go back and up the ante.

    Rebecca, Rio and Wookie, we were wondering if, on some of the items that could be duplicated (such as pictures, B’s book, the ARC, maybe)that, if the person who donated it was willing, others could purchase that item at the winning bid amount. That way if someone keeps outbidding Mom on the Newf picture or Cardinal picture, she could send the winning amount to Snowhook and get a duplicate picture? Does that make sense or is that getting too complicated?

  43. Gus & BooBear
    12:49 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Oh, and great picture of YSAS, Melanie!!

  44. Mollypop
    12:49 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Melanie – We sent the rain on to you. We got it overnight which was very convenient.

  45. Gus & BooBear
    12:50 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    And great pics of TYB, too. Looks like he has honarary leash holders in the picture of him marching.

  46. dawson
    1:04 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Mollypop: Wonderful pictures of Tyb. I can see why you cut off his nose…you wanted to make sure you got the left half of that headless boy in the blue shirt. The goats seem awfully well groomed to be Marauders.

    Barb and Maggie: Okay…but you better not forget to send that card!

  47. Siber-H
    1:05 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Love the pictures of TYB, Mollypop. He is such a pretty color.

    If anyone knows how to round up some Border Collie people, like on Facebookie, try to get them over to the auction site to look at TYB’s Border Collie.

  48. OleyHowlers
    1:27 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Our blue husky eyes are watching closely those who are outbidding us on those other Watching Eyes. Knock it off already!

  49. C. Harris
    1:35 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Hmmm…I bid on 9 items yesterday and have been outbid on 8 of them this morning. Friendships could end over this.

    Thanks for all your kind comments yesterday. Is Natasha still around and infiltrating the world of the Plunderers?

  50. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    1:37 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    It’s stll real exciting here at Auction Central. After the ARC, the item that has garnered the most bids so far is the picture of Franklin in the snow (item no. 20). Way to go Franklin, on your way to being a real rock star. And I’m sure if the Herbs had thought it through, they would have put up T & G for auction, not a photo, mind you, but T & G themselves. I think the packing box is already set to go. Wookie

  51. BearSpiritDog
    1:37 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    MollyPop: Great photos of TYB and the Marauding Goats!

    Siber-H: How is the rain situation? Are the monsoons here at last?

    GusBooBear: An interesting idea, if it can be done, and more money for Snowhook. What say you, oh Auctioneers & Bid-Keepers?

  52. Siber-H
    1:44 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Hey! I like that! Franklin as a Rock Star!!

    Bear, I think there is a slow beginning to them, which is the way it usually happens. I just learned this morning that the weather experts say that our dew point needs to be 47 or above for three days for the monsoon to officially begin. That hasn’t happened yet, but for crying out loud, the weather people are being picky.

  53. Siber-H
    1:53 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    CHarris, The Borzoi is still around, but sometimes she is busy on important spy missions. (whispering) She doesn’t know that the Cold War is over with.

  54. B.Stover
    1:55 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    What a doughty dog Tyb is! Excellent pictures Mollypop. Thank you.

    And thank you for the info on the goats Barb. I was wondering what kind they are since I’ve never seen brown and white goats like that. They are beautiful!

    I’m being outbid on several items. Grump!

  55. B.Stover
    1:58 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Kirby: I think your book cover is wonderful!

  56. Gus & BooBear
    2:01 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Speaking of T&G, Mom watched a really bad movie last night “102 Dalmations” with Glenn Close. There was 1 quick scene with 2 corgi puppies in it. There were so cute!!!

  57. Gus & BooBear
    2:02 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Meant to say “they were so cute”

  58. Masquers
    2:09 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Tyb: You are a Handsome Dog! And, so Patriotic.

    Siber: Bear might disagree with you about the coolness of bidding against yourself. I notice he has bid against me on occasion and that’s almost the same thing. I had to lend him mom’s credit card since his bank loan hasn’t come through yet.

    Melanie: Talent seems to run in the family. Go, Franklin, Go!

  59. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    2:14 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    CHarris: Yes, Nattie is still around! She took some of us to the Royal Wedding and she and SiberH seem to have some kind of “thing” going. Even though I really think she’s hot.

  60. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    2:17 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Mom says to tell everyone that Wolfie’s Best Toffee will be boxed in 3- 4 decorative boxes and can be shipped separately. It is not too early to consider Christmas presents!

  61. BearSpiritDog
    2:37 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Wolfie! Your mom’s toffee is going for top dollar!

  62. Melanie
    3:03 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    I am cooking gluten free chocolate brownies.

    I am in my 10 minutes over the cooking time. I think our oven has a lower temperature than what it says.

    I told Franklin about being a rock star. He drooled.

  63. BearSpiritDog
    3:54 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Wolfie: You make a good argument to present to the Facebookie types – early Christmas shopping. If my calculations are correct (& their bids are coming through as Fan of Chet) we haven’t seen a lot of bidding on their part. Wookie & Rio what are you seeing at your end?

  64. Barb & Maggie
    4:19 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Just having a good time with you Dawson. There are 2 sets so we can each have one. But we can still send Staff a card.
    Maybe she will take G & B’s advise and make somemore. What do you think?

    Barb says time for some reading and then a wonderful Sunday nap.

  65. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:21 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Bids!… I’ve seen some dumb bunnies post directly on the Auction Page….Grump!… I think Wookie let one go, but the others were deleted….snort!… If you can’t read and follow rules you should not be out there bidding…gruffle! ….I have a feeling these odd posts are not from our group at all. Probably facebookie types trying to be smart asses…grunt!

  66. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:22 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Clarkson!…He has snuck out of my paws, but I will get him back…snort!…Staff’s Quilt has gone way beyond my new and very low budget…grump!

  67. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    4:40 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Kirby, I want a copy of your book. Will you be selling more?

  68. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    4:43 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Rio, those direct bids are from me. I’m not sure why it is happening, but it is not intentional.

  69. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:48 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Puss N’ Boots!….At this stage of the Auction Game, I don’t think it would be wise to through more options and rules into the mix….snort!…Things are rolling along quite nicely now as is….sniff!… Plus, it would take a lot of coordination to make sure the Donors would be willing to offer more items. You have to factor in the cost to them to make and ship those extra Items….grunt!… It’s a nice idea, but not one we want to attempt this go-around….snorkel!

  70. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:51 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Wolfie!… grump!… I should have known it was You!…grunt!….Quit posting your bids directly on the Item!….dammit!…. Send an email like everyone else. Do you go out of your way to annoy me, or is it just second nature for you?….grumble!

  71. Gus & BooBear
    4:56 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    You’re right, Rio. We are very happy the auction is going as well as it is. Everybody keep bidding. It will probably slow down during the week then pick up again on the final weekend.

  72. Gus & BooBear
    5:07 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Mom just checked for us and we are winning the 4 items we are actively bidding on. We started out with more, but are having to narrow down the items as the prices keep going up. Getting close to the budget total, so if certain items keep going up, we’ll have re-negotiate our allowance. Seriously thinking about jumping in on the toffee bidding, too.

    Hope everyone is having as much fun as we are.

  73. Buddy and T.C.
    5:08 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Finally we got the huskies off the p.c. so that we can post. They are obsessed with auction bidding.

    Mollypop, thanks for posting the pictures of Tyb and the Marauding Goats. Tyb is one of the greatest-looking doggies ever, and the goats are very cute.

    We have been begging Mom for $$ to bid on Staff’s quilt, but she said the Howlers have already bankrupted her. Franklin is so popular…thats a wonderful photo, Melanie.

    Now about the Plunderers running the government. We hope you all mean to put a cat in the top position. If its a dog, he/she will just lie around and worry that someone is trying to take his cookie. A cat, on the other hand, never gets distracted, and can be merciless when necessary. Yes, we definitely think one of us plundering cats would make a splendid emperor president.

  74. Melanie
    5:26 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Buddy and T.C.: There is some disagreement with your idea around here. The Pack is saying NO KATS at the top slot. They all agree that the Alpha B**** should be a female dog. Not Kat. Kats are not group players.

    That is their opinion not mine. I say that which ever species ends up at the top will have my full support.

  75. Siber-H
    5:26 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Oh dawg…

  76. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi
    5:43 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    CHarris – yes, Natasha is still here. But ve have had very bad cold – even though Siber is thinking that Cold Var is over – is not. Ve still sneeze and have red nose. Is very embarrasing for most beautiful undercover spy.
    But vorry not – Natasha vill be here to vatch over Plunderers…and to outbid all of you on favorite auctions. HA!
    Ve kind of have itchy, vatering eye on picture of most beautiful YSAS…hmmm. Ve have never considered interspecies dating, but is possible ve could consider this)
    Rio – you be nice to Volfie! Volfie is keeper of toffee. Do NOT piss off the Volf!

  77. Mollypop
    5:51 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    This is our last day of big doings here for the Fourth of July. Music music everywhere. Last Friday was Rusted Root, last night the Buffalo Philharmonic, and tonight is KC and the Sunshine Band. The Buffalo Philharmonic ended with the 1812 Overture and the Stars and Stripes Forever musically coordinated with the fireworks display. Wow! There’s more music in town, this is just what’s here on the ski slope.

  78. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:04 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Buddy-Kat!… I know what you mean about not having the funds to bid on what you want!…huffle!…She says we can only bid on important stuff that she wants…sniff!… I keep sneaking in bids on Clarkson without her knowing it though…heh!

    Celebrate!… I think we should have an After-Auction-Blow-Out Party!…Woooo!… I know Wookie, Debbie, my Friend and I will most definitely want to celebrate after this is over!…snort!snort!…Maybe AJ and Rebeccer will show up and make a Speech!…snort! …At the party I mean, not today…sniff!

  79. Melanie
    6:16 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    The brownies turned out nicely. Even though I did my usual and forgot they were in there. I was working on two birthday cakes! Luckily the oven is so slow the brownies were just done when I remembered to check them.

    Natasha, If you want to date YSAS you best get over your cold. A beautiful spy with a red nose? I just can’t see it.

  80. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi
    6:25 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Melanie – Is ok – Ve will hat vith veil.

  81. Kirby T. Penworthy
    6:39 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Hey, y’all! Mom and Dad just got back from their movie to let me onto the computer. They said the movie was funny but raunchy — very raunchy, whatever that means. (Raunch — isn’t that a place that has lots of horses and cows and stuff? Not sure what a teacher’s doing there.) Anyway, the main character showed movies every day — Dad said he recognized that tactic! Not him, though. He’s not a “Bad Teacher”!

    By the way, I’m still winning on the one thing I’ve bid on so far. This is fun! I think I’ll have to go find something else to bid on. Rio and Wookie say I should find the green stuff in Mom’s purse and send it to them. I hope Mom and Dad didn’t spend all their green stuff on that movie. What? And dinner afterwards?! Oooh…I see some candy in that purse! Mmmmmm…Twizzlers! Wait! What was I supposed to be looking for???

    Keep looking KirbyT!

    Snickering here. I’m finished with cakes and brownies, now I’m working on “Newfs in the Pool”. In one portion I’m calling Rose to come into the pool. So right now she came over and said, “Hey, whatcha want? Why do you keep calling me? I’m right here!”

    Melanie: Dad tells a story about a time when he was stupid — I mean when he was in high school — and he and his best friend taped themselves calling his friend’s dog several times. Then they turned the tape recorder up as high as it would go and put it in the barn. They turned the tape recorder on and the dog would run to the barn. Then they would call him back. Then their taped call would make him run back to the barn. Over and over. They thought they were pretty funny. Then again, they used to make bets on what color sweater Mr. Rogers would pull from the closet every day, so just how much did it take to entertain those two???

    Wolfie: Maybe when the auction is over, I could put the book on the blog so everyone can read it. It’s only 8 pages. I’m not sure how long that it, but I don’t think it would take as long to read as one of Chet and Bernie’s books.

    Oops! I’m not sure how long that is, not it!

    Oh Buddy Boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
    From glen to glen and down the mountain side
    The month is gone and it is time, tis time
    That you, my friend, were going home.

    KirbT, you had us laughing here! Oh the times before the internet! snicker

    I have finished editing the video. Now I have to up load it onto youtube. That takes awhile.

    Oh Riö, I left in the part where Rose’s drool goes into the pool just for you!

    Kirby! You couldn’t even remember what you were supposed to be looking for in your Mom’s purse. See that proves what we say about the attention span of a dog. Don’t misunderstand; we love love love our huskies, but not so much for President.

    Masquers, love that song. It is, indeed, time for that other Buddy to leave the page.

    I love those swimming bears, I mean Newfs…

    AJ has been taking the dogs to a nearby lake while I’ve been away. Luna is part fish and loves swimming. Belle Starr has never swam before but won’t leave Luna’s side. AJ said the first time at the lake, Belle Starr followed out in the water Luna and then realized she couldn’t swim AJ waded out and brought the little girl back to shore. Now we have two fish…

    B. Love those Poirot Mysteries! AND Alan Cumming.

    SnowBella: I can just picture the dogs in that lake. Seems Belle Starr forgot to “dog paddle”. snicker

    Having a late snack then turning in for the night. See you all tomorrow. Have a good rest of the evening.

    Phooey! EVERYONE knows that there should be a KAT for President.
    Kats are clean: we wash ourselves, we never smell, we even clean up after our personal necessities.
    Dawgs love to roll in smelly stuff: therefore they are very good at politics, but not so much actually being in charge.

    Kats are focused: we will sit outside a mousehole for hours waiting for the critter to stick his head out – then WHAM! No more mousie. In other words, it wouldn’t have taken a herd of KATS 11 years and a team of seals to get the bad guy.
    Dawgs can be distracted by little things like fuzzbutts, baseballs, frisbees and Twizlers

    Kats are dignified: one never knows what a Kat is thinking, hence we are very good at politics, diplomacy and Texas Hold’Em.
    Dawgs can’t help it – if they’re happy, their tails wag. If they’re scared their tails tuck down, and if they are happy they act in the most egegriously undignified manner. NOT suitable for any situation.

    Therefore, I Sage, state that the next leader of this country needs to be a Kat!

    And, me Basil, state that there should be catnip for EVERYBODY!

    10:55 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Oh – there goes my advantage with the toffee. Dang.

    Re the auction items, in the end i couldn’t afford to donate an artwork AND do the cookbook AND bid on items in the auction as well. Sorry, i should have explained earlier but I felt crummy about dipping out like that.

    Next time.

    Auction site working fine for me too, by the way.

    Status report from Sunday night. We are up to $1658.50 and Franklin still rocks. We think he should autograph his picture, or at least drool on it. Wookie

    T&G, you might be underestimating my sweet tooth there!

    11:21 pm on July 3rd, 2011

    Liz – a friend of ours from your fair land used to say “Never underestimate an Aussie – they come at you like a shark; from Down Under!”

    So we will never underestimate anything about you – but we will over bid you! So there! (tee hee)

    I’m hoping those sharks aren’t swimming anywhere near Charleston, because that’s where Mom and Dad and my girl are going to spend the Fourth of July. The fireworks go up over the harbor, and I sure wouldn’t want any sharks eating them before they go off!

    Goodnight, y’all!
