    Good Morning All!

    Rio, I am so loving the pictures you are posting of your friend’s Lil Bouquet project in progress. It’s amazing how much intricate work goes into each little flower.

    T&G: I was beside myself last night when I got home!!!! A package from the Royal Mum herself was at my door….and inside my very own Dreamcatcher!!!! It is beautiful!!! Thanks youse guys for packing the precious cargo so well.

    Kirstie lost 100 lbs last year, so think she is still in the skinny range.

    Thanks Oleys, we appreciate the moon info, but Siber says they are all The Wolf Moon.

  7. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:44 am on June 7th, 2012

    Pounds!…Wow!…Thats a lot of fat!…grunt!…I wonder how she did it. Is that what her new book is about?…wheeze!

    Live Streaming.
    Someone has to tell Spence/PA that he should go to the end of Row 2200/2300 across the room from the autograph booth. Lets see that is near the Easy Pub booth and then he should jump up and down and wave.


  9. Staff
    10:47 am on June 7th, 2012

    Ooops, upon checking further I see that booth is called the EasyEPub.

    Get on that right away. OK, Spence?

    Rose – you are welcome for the packing job. We want you to know that Mama used the packing supplies she confiscated from us last time we were trying to send the Corgis on “vacation”

    What the heck is Malbec?

    Mama says the only way she could lose 100 pounds would be to go to a casino in England. (give it a minute)

    Thanks Barb, that is what I was thinking when I looked at the Howlers moon list…Wolf Moons!!

    Kristie Alley, huh? Oh well
    Her book will sell whatever it is about. All the books by B grade “stars” end up on the bestseller lists.

  14. OleyHowlers
    10:57 am on June 7th, 2012

    Rio, this morning, we looked at the pictures you posted last evening. We are amazed at your friend’s patience and dexterity. And did we tell you how much we are loving our Old Dog quilling? Both the quilling itself, and the lovely frame/box that it is in.

    Yes, Siber does call all of the full moons the Wolf Moon. But apparently these wolves do not!

    If Kirsty’s book is about her weight loss, we’ll skip it. No matter what diet she follows, she seems to put the weight back on.

  15. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:58 am on June 7th, 2012

    Kats!…heh!snort!heh!…100 pounds…heh!

    Alley!…We here love Kristie Alley. She was hilarious on Cheers…snort!…What else has she done? Oh, yea that Look Whos Talking movie…sniff!

    11:04 am on June 7th, 2012

    Oley!…Glad you like someones quilling. Don’t get me started on those frames. She had a lot of trouble getting enough of them on time…heh!…And don’t let that lil’ Kat near it!…grunt!

    Basil and Sage: Malbec is a red grape used to make Cahors wine. Here’s an article.

  21. Basil and Sage
    11:27 am on June 7th, 2012

    Thanks Bee. We’ll stick to cream.

  22. BearSpiritDog
    11:29 am on June 7th, 2012

    B: A question here about the difference between Red wine and Cabernet or Merlot.
    Rio: Looking forward to another class in the Art of Quilling this evening. What a lot of work! Your friend must have the patience of Job.
    BTW: Thanks for the live stream link to the Expo. We didn’t see Spence either.
    Kristie Alley has had quite a struggle with her weight. Wasn’t she doing an ad for Jennie Craig at one time and became intimidated by another actress. Valerie Bertinelli, doing the same type ads?
    O.Howlers: The list you posted of the Full (Wolf for Siber-H) Moon dates is appreciated.

  23. Siber-H
    11:46 am on June 7th, 2012

    If the wolves at that Sanctuary could vote, all the moons would be Wolf Moons.

    Rio, we are really enjoying the qulling photos you are showing us. It makes it easier for a dense brain like mine to picture how it is done.

  24. Melanie
    11:52 am on June 7th, 2012

    I can see that I need to catch up on yesterday’s comments.
    Staff, If PSQA does jump up and down please do a screen grab!

    Been busy this morning. First thing? Hot cocoa and the heating pad.
    Then off to the walk/run. Patsy is doing sooooooooooooo much better since she’s been sheered. All that hotness and panting was using up her energy.
    After that to the nursery where I seem to be keeping him in business. This time some 18 to 24 inch flower.

    Ih a bit I will go out for more gardening.

    Sunny right now. Showers are popping up.

    Good morrow all!

  25. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:52 am on June 7th, 2012

    SiberH!…Wait till you get a look at how the stems are made…snort!…That will really blow your mind!…heh!

  26. Siber-H
    12:01 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Stems! Coming up tonight!

  27. Melanie
    12:06 pm on June 7th, 2012

    GLAD’s newest picture she working on with just the first layer of paint down.
    Sigh . . . Riö’s friend’s quilling, the Royals’ Mum’s pottery, wish I could do those things.

  28. Staff
    12:15 pm on June 7th, 2012

    It sounds like you are in for more icky weather tonight. Be safe there.
    I have to go get ready for Quilt club tonight. Make sure the Root beer is cold and the ice cream vanilla.

  29. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:43 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Club!…I’ve over-heard my friend say she wishes there was a Quilling Club in town…grunt!…Then she could get together with all the other strange people who like to do this paper thing. They could have root-beer floats and talk about their slotted tools…heh!heh!wuffle!

  30. Siber-H
    12:57 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Melanie, We will have none of that “wish I could do those things” You make great videos and photos…THE SNOWHOOK VIDEO!!!

  31. OleyHowlers
    1:25 pm on June 7th, 2012

    We agree with our Sibe friend that Melanie is very very talented. Mom is not.
    Mom loves the painting of the halter. That is very good! If something like that were to appear in a MMS one day, she would jump on it. (hint)

  32. Buddy
    1:27 pm on June 7th, 2012

    STOP! Mom and Pop have so many gosh-darn horse-related photos and paintings in this house which belongs to T.C. and me me me … it makes us sick. Cat paintings? Only in her bathroom!

  33. B.Stover
    1:39 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Bear: Malbec, Cabernet, and Merlot are different varieties of red grapes all used to make wine. This is similar to different varieties of apple, for example. (Does this answer the question?)

  34. BearSpiritDog
    2:12 pm on June 7th, 2012

    B: I understand the different varieties, but wondered about the differences in taste. We usually drink Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, but don’t have much experience with those that are labeled simply, Red wine.

  35. Melanie
    2:15 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Okay, I will be happy with what I have.

    Tony, the Mac doc, is coming now. So we’ll be off the internet for awhile.


  36. BearSpiritDog
    2:18 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Melanie: You are our Master Magician of Photography and Video – a very Special Talent indeed.
    Glad’s painting looks so real I feel I could reach out and remove the halter from the hook.

  37. B.Stover
    2:19 pm on June 7th, 2012

    “Red wine” would be made of a variety of grapes, none being a higher percentage than the other. Anything labeled “Cahors” must have a certain percentage of the Malbec grape in order to have that name. There is a difference in taste also. Cahors, for example, is very dark red and “rich and smooth.” Merlot is a bit lighter in color and “texture.” Zinfendel is the only American red wine that is closest to Cahors I think.

  38. B.Stover
    2:30 pm on June 7th, 2012

    That should be Zinfandel.

  39. Barb & Maggie
    2:32 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Bee, don’t a lot of the Malbec grapes come for Australia?

    Also, we always thought anything labeled “red table wine” was a lighter tasting wine, and not as full bodied as a cab or merlot.

  40. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:36 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Video!…Does anyone on this here blog know who would copy old VCR Video Cassettes to DVD’s?…snort!… Beau and I found every single episode of All Creatures Great And Small on these video tapes but we can’t watch them on her TV…grunt!…It only plays DVDs…wuffle!

  41. Barb & Maggie
    2:40 pm on June 7th, 2012

    That reminds me, we ordered The Market Square Dog, also by Herriot. Should be here in a few days. May have to read it before gifting to one of the grands.

  42. B.Stover
    3:08 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Malbec is grown in Australia (also in Washington state) but I don’t think it originated in Australia.

  43. Barb & Maggie
    3:27 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Barb’s bro is a wine (and coffee) aficionado, and he loves, loves, loves Washington state wines.

    Weird, Barb & her bro both like good wine and coffee and are big dog lovers. Their sister, who is half way between them in age, likes tea, beer and is not an animal lover. She is also a PIA, but that’s beside the point.

  44. B.Stover
    3:34 pm on June 7th, 2012

    What does PIA mean?

  45. OleyHowlers
    3:35 pm on June 7th, 2012

    PIA is professional insurance agent?

    Mom and her bro both love good wine, good beer, and French food. Mom also likes coffee but her bro does not. Her sis did not like any of those.

  46. OleyHowlers
    3:36 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Oh but Mom and her sister were both dog lovers, as are all 4 of her sister’s kids. Her bro is not an animal lover.

  47. Siber-H
    3:40 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Rio, Google “How to transfer video cassettes to dvds” and a bunch of returns will come up. Some of them will tell you how to do it and others will do it for you.

  48. Siber-H
    3:42 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Could PIA mean pain in the ass?

  49. OleyHowlers
    3:56 pm on June 7th, 2012

    LOL! Siber, we think you’re right!

  50. dawson
    3:57 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Oh my dog! Did Siber H say that. Or does Rio have Siber H’s avatar?

    Rio: I sent some kat coasters to you (or your friend) yesterday or the day before. I hope they get there okay because I am not a wonderful wrapper like some of youse. Plus, I’m frugal so no tracking. On the bright side there is a thank you gift from the kats.
    I am fascinated by your quilling how-to.

    Blast! The bell is ringing.

    Contrary to popular opinion the Market Square Dog was not put into the MMS by me. It was Staff.

  51. Barb & Maggie
    3:59 pm on June 7th, 2012

    She is definitely not a professional insurance agent!

  52. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:01 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Kat!…Koasters!…gah!…Who the hell ordered those things?…grunt!

  53. B.Stover
    4:06 pm on June 7th, 2012

    SH’s explanation is correct!! LOL!

  54. Barb & Maggie
    4:12 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Yes Dawson, we thought it was you that put Market Square Dog in the MMS. Regardless, it looked good and we missed it. Sob.

    Re: The PIA. She has come to visit one time since 2005, and when she did she would not step off the patio into the yard. No trip to view the barn, chickens or the beautiful veggie gardens. When Barb asked her to take a tour of the grounds she replied “Maybe later”. Gah! Can’t believe we have the same dna. Maybe we could trade her for some of Rio’s friends relatives.

  55. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:26 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Swap!…A straight swap for my friends sisters husband…heh!…She says a PIA is way better than being dumb and mean….grunt!

  56. dawson
    4:27 pm on June 7th, 2012

    It really is Pain in the Ass?

    The bell is a PIA.

    Yes Rio, someone from your address ordered those Kat Koasters, unless it is the Marauding Goats messing with me. I was afraid it was you and you were going to use them as dartboards.

  57. Masquers

    4:46 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Dawson, Now I feel sorry I got Mom that bell. But you did tell me you wanted one. Is it really loud? Whispering…(I bet it is.)

    I expect I will be sorrier when you are back in Canada for your mini vacation. Heh.

  63. Masquers

    Staff: No no, you did good. It is annoying but it does the job. Mom is cold! It’s 95 degrees out there and the air conditioners are NOT on. Her internal heating mechanism does not seem to be working today.
    I’m trying to make a quilled flower…now, is there any glue around here? Oh yeah…in Staff’s closet.

  65. Riö – The Evil Pug

    Dawson!…Good on ya!…heh!

  66. dawson
    5:28 pm on June 7th, 2012

    I had to use wood glue. I will let it dry while I look for a rolling tool. If only I had a can of Spam…I know the little key they give you to open the can would work perfectly.

  67. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:49 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Dawson!…How’s it look?…snort!…You and my friend could start a Quilling Club and drink rootbeer floats…heh!

  68. dawson
    5:49 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Rolling is harder than one would think…

    Now hold on just one blinkin’ minute here! Who says they aren’t talented? Bah humbug! different talents for different people.
    Melanie has done remarkable photography, editing and writing. Plus she has raised two remarkable, honorable young men. Now that takes talent!
    The Howlers’ Mom takes in Sibers, and kittens and forlorn horses and makes them happy, healthy and content. That is talent!
    Barb grows the best veggies, and shares her inowledge, and her seeds. (and information about tin shares)And that takes talent!
    Some Plunderers excel at making us all laugh, some keep us in line, some are the best organizers, some have a wealth of information to share.
    There is not one among us who is not talented in a special way. And we want you all to know that we appreciate each and every one of you for the unique talent that you bring to our community!
    So there!

    I wouldn’t mind a rootbeer float though.

    6:54 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Youse guys got me laughing here!

    Now have an airport on the desk. It is white with a green light. It looks happy. Whew. Tony also thinks he has figured out the DVD problem. Now if I can just get to a store.

    Sooooo, Rosalyn wasn’t looking too great and I told Zoë. Zoë made it downstairs just as Ros gorked over everything. Hmmm. Kept an eye on her for an hour while I was working with Tony.

    Skipping to the end . . . Ros and I have just come back from the vet’s. She will be going back tomorrow. She has had TWO HUGE things for fluids, a shot for pain in her tummy and a shot to make her brain from sending the signals to throw up.

    Whew, I’m zonked. She’s zonked. Zoë’s zonked. She does NOT, I repeat does NOT, have bloat. She ate something that is making her a sick puppy.

    Tomorrow more x-rays, more fluids and decisions.

    I’m stuffing that sick puppy under the quilt!

  74. Melanie
    7:02 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Hey, a guy named Terry wrote on yesterday’s blog today! He put a picture up our favorite author! Cool! Hi Terry!

    Riö, just saw your quilled pictures. Wow, that is awesome. For a minute there I thought you had made some sushi.

  75. Rose
    7:03 pm on June 7th, 2012

    T&G: Thank you for that!

    Bob Welch has died by a self-inflicted gunshot wound. RIP.

  76. Rose
    7:10 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Terry also mentioned he read all “five”. What does he mean by that? Are there some C&B books I don’t know about?

  77. Rose
    7:12 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Melanie: Hope Ros is feeling tip-top soon!

  78. Kirby T. Penworthy
    7:25 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Hey, y’all! Mom’s home, and this house stinks! Not that those two things are connected — Mom is home, so now I can get on the computer, but the house stinks because Dad was putting Danish oil on the ceiling in the laundry room. Peeyoo!!!

  79. Melanie
    7:29 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Kirby T. With all the work your Mom and Dad have been doing in that room, they should put a sofa in there and use it as a parlor!

  80. Kirby T. Penworthy
    7:35 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Melanie: Not only that, but they found a perfectly good light to put on the ceiling, but the one they really liked was twice as expensive. So guess which one they bought? Who the heck is even going to see the thing? Are they going to give guided tours of the laundry room? And do they still have money left for my treats? That’s the most important question of all!!!

  81. BearSpiritDog
    7:35 pm on June 7th, 2012

    Melanie: Terry has mentioned reading all five books before. Perhaps he got his paws on an ARC.
    Terry: Is this true?

    An Arc of Fistful of Collars

    A dream . . . sigh

  83. dawson

    Kirsti Alley has a web site that sells a weight loss program. And now a book. She’d better not get so fat again or nobody will buy her stuff.

  85. Melanie
    7:57 pm on June 7th, 2012

    No Dawson, that was my dream.

    I can not handle any more. Need to go to bed. Someday I will stay up late once again!

    Fat! Chance! Rio!
    Remember I come from the SiberH school of technological idiots. Don’t worry…we are talented in oh so many other ways.

    Although if the photo is already in the computer, I can post it on the blog 50% (approx) of the time.

    Besides, I’m not finished yet. I’m waiting for instructions on how to make (and hopefully attach) the stem.

  89. Barb & Maggie

    Ten!….Cut twelve 2 inch pieces of thin wire. Cut twelve 6 inch “stems”. She bought this wire for stems at a hobby shop….snort!….Take one of those little buds that we made the other night and very carefully put the 2 inch thin wire through the little bitty hole in the middle of the bottom of the bud. Then bend the end of the wire so it cannot slip back out of the buds bottom….heh!….Like this.

    Eleven!….Pull the wire to the bottom of the bud and put a dollup of glue on it….snort!…This will secure the wire and hold the bud in its shape…sniff!

    Twelve!… Now wrap the wire at the bottom of the bud around one of the Stems….sniff!….Glue the point where the bottom meets the top of the stem…snort!

    Thirteen!….Wrap the whole stem starting at the base of the bud with plant tape….sniff!…Not sure what it is really called, but it is used to make flower stems because it is sticky but not too sticky…grunt!…Whatever that means.

    Fourteen!….Now take the flower and glue it to the bud. …snort!….The size should match so the bud and the base of the flower go together perfectly…heh!heh!…In Dawsons case this might be tricky…snorkel!

    Hey – there is a picture of baby Ishmael in Chet’s Friends. What a cute baby he was – wonder how he is these days.

    Rebecca – checked, responded and twirling

    Rio – your friend should think about STARTING a quilling club…or teaching a class.

    Rio’s friend’s work is so beautiful. Hard to believe she finds it relaxing, it is so intricate. I am glad I got those cards and kept them last Christmas. I will never part with them now!

    We had a long day at CLL, so will be turning in. Sweet dreams everyone.

    Rio – just think- two members of the club, two Pugs that like laps….how good can it get?

    But really – doesn’t your friend get her pretty paper supplies from a craft store? The Michaels we have out here has classes – and if someone asks about a certain type of class, they find a way to have one. Tell your friend to ask about a quilling class and if they don’t have one, she could teach one. And YES, she IS expert enough!

    Tupper!…She says she doesn’t want to….snorkel!…She only allowed me to post the how-to fotos for youse guys so you know how much work goes into one of her creations…grunt!…I’m betting its because she wants to charge more for them at the Store…heh!heh!heh!heh!

    We kinda knew how much work goes into them – not the exact how to – but we figured there was quite a bit of time involved.

    Did ya hear about the guy in Oregon who called the police to come protect him from the cougar that was in his backyard? Turned out it was a Maine Coon Kat.
    Sheesh – how embarrasing must that have been?

    When Mama lived in Pennsylvania, some friends from New York City came out to visit. One of them went out the car in the evening, and came running back in the house, screaming about the “biggest dam rat” she had ever seen. It was just the local opossum, wandering through. Oh well – city folks, ya know.
