Beatrix Potter Scene From A Cat Was Involved

Something about a wife? I didn’t quite grasp it. My attention was elsewhere, specifically on this rabbit at the bottom of the bowl, his image growing clearer as the water level went down. I’d never caught a rabbit, as I might have mentioned, and how they hop so quickly away is very bothersome. Plus this particular rabbit at the bottom of the bowl seemed to be wearing a human-type jacket, and somehow that was bothersome, too. Both bothersomes came together and the next thing I knew I was sort of giving the bowl a nudge, somewhat like the nudges Butch and I’d exchanged earlier in the day, but not as hard. I certainly didn’t mean it to be as hard; still, there was no denying that the bowl was airborne. It flipped over once or twice, landed on the floor and shattered into many, many pieces.

Uh-oh. I looked at Bernie. He gazed at all those pieces. My tail drooped. I’d been bad, messed up, done wrong. And on top of it I’d also washed out of K-9 school. I wanted to go lie down under something in a dark place. Bernie turned slowly toward me, the hardness in his face harder than ever, although still not mean. His mouth started to open. I got ready for shouting and screaming. But no shouting or screaming happened. Instead Bernie laughed. He laughed and laughed, shaking with laughter, tears rolling from his eyes.

Welcome Brutus.

    Good morning. I’m glad Spence and Admin. posted early, as Barb is getting ready to take off for Freeport. Has a quick stop, then closing at 9:00. Yea!!

    We love Beatrix Potter’s characters. Much better than Winnie the Pooh. Still have the Potter baby china that Josh had 30 years ago.

    Raining here, but no horrible winds, thank Dog. BBL

    Greeting All!

    Beautiful day here in Westchester County!

    CHH: Is there a possibility that we will meet for the 2013 Iditarod? That would be way cool!

    Rio, I will make sure the Prof takes many pictures of Rio, Jr., and I’ll send you a postcard.

    Masquers, how are you holding up to the wildfires? You and Bear stay safe my friends.

    Good morning, All! Happy Closing to Barb and Maggie, just in case they missed it on the end of yesterday’s blog.

    Our ‘rents are going off with their bikes today…something about a canal and lunch at a Landings place, whatever that means. We will be alone til our friend Kara comes by later.

    We had a power failure and so now there’s no wifi. I’d be lost without my iPhone. Nice weather here but pea soup fog. Fog doesn’t cause power failures.

    Today I have to make a 120 mile round trip to see a lung specialist in Amherst. Usually I stay over with Sam for these things but I have to come back here to finish getting ready to go to SAMs on Saturday.

    Interview!…Just when I was ready to listen to the interview the sound is gone…grump!…I will have to wait till my friend gets home I guess…gruffle!…Does he say anything “new”? Did he mention ME!ME!ME!?…heh!heh!

    Rebecca, February 26th is our arrival day. I will e-mail you the details. I hope Luna doesn’t run herself ragged cleaning up splort. I’m very excited!!!!!!

    We love this excerpt from ACWI, but then loved the entire story so much it is hard to pick and choose.

    Wose: The Taylor Bridge fire is burning east of the mountains. We are okay here in Puget Sound. It is still not under control and the hot temperatures are not helping. Yesterday it was 25% contained.
    Exciting news about your trip next February! Our Wose Iditarod bound. Wooo Hooo!

    Happy closing day on your house, Barb!!! The new house will be tomorrow? This is so exciting!

    Good Morning to All. Preparing for another hot one.

    Trigger and Rio up top here in NoDak. We had some rain 4 days ago and now our burned meadow no longer looks black. It is green green green. (At least from the kitchen window) Much nicer looking.

    I was curious and looked up Peter Rabbit bowls on Ebay completed listings. 24.95 seems to be a usual price.

  15. dawson
    11:27 am on August 16th, 2012

    Spence: Thanks for the emotion charged excerpt from one who still has not figured out how to download the story. I bet the ex bought that bowl.
    Barb and Maggie: Closing day, hurray, hurray.
    Snowhook Bella: Thanks for telling the unobservant moi where to find the interview. Nice.

  16. Masquers
    11:46 am on August 16th, 2012

    Dawson/Riö: How did you finally get to Spence’s interview? When I go to the next page there isn’t a link for the playback. Although, from what you’ve said about the “voice”, Riö, maybe it’s just as well…..

  17. Masquers
    11:56 am on August 16th, 2012

    Mlaiuppa & Ramses: If you are lurking…I forgot to say thank you for the link you posted the other day of John Unger and Shoep. It was nice to see them in a video.
    Any photos of you, Ramses, for the blog?

  18. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:56 am on August 16th, 2012

    Maskers!…I had to Allow an Add-On to run to see the link to the interview…sniff!…Today there is no audio…grump!

  19. Masquers

    Mlaiuppa too!

  20. Masquers
    12:05 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Thanks, Riö, but still no luck. A link is mentioned, but it does not appear. Do I have to register with Authorlink first?
    Is anyone else having this problem?

  21. Barb & Maggie
    12:10 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Howdy Folks! Back from the closing, which went without a hitch. Barb can finally relax. New owner, Shirley, is so excited about moving in here. She is as excited as Barb is to be going! Me, I sorta like the goaties and the chickens and the big yard.

    Bear, Yes, tomorrow at 11:00 will be closing on the Woodstock house. The final move is next Friday, but all the hard stuff is done. Easy Peasy for the next week.

    Printing!…Does anyone know if I could connect my Kindle to my laptop and then print the E-Story for those in need like, Beau and Dawson??…snort!

  23. B.Stover
    12:26 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Mollypop’s Mom: That is a good question–What did cause the moderation?

    I enjoyed the interview with Spence. One thing that had me laughing was his explaining how he got the idea for writing the Chet and Bernie series. He said that six months’ worth of work can happen in thirty seconds…and the opposite is true too.

  24. Barb & Maggie
    12:34 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Rio, Add us to those in need of the E-Story. Thank you.

    Almost lunch time then a much needed nap. BBL

    Whew, back from down the hill for errands and then to the great JonnyG’s for acupuncture.

    Hmmm, the only difference i saw was that Sam’s name was in capital letters.

    Have no idea what youse guys are talking about for an interview. When I’ve rested I’ll have to take the DeLorean back to yesterday.

    YSAS is at that series he’s worked but not worked for 2 days. He is working today. The promo is getting close to done!

    I won’t be posting a link on here. i will email youse guys if you want to see it, but it will be after the 24th.

  26. B.Stover
    12:44 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Rio: If you go to Amazon’s Kindle Store, click “manage Kindle” and it gives you a list of orders with an “action” button. When you click it you can get a “deliver to my…” link. If your computer is one of the devices on your Amazon account (mine is not) I think that you can download the story to your computer. Here is what it says (this is for a download from computer to Kindle but I’m assuming you can upload as well):

    “Transfer Tip: After downloading, use your USB cable to connect your computer and Kindle. Your Kindle will appear as a drive on your computer. Copy your downloaded file from your computer to your Kindle’s documents folder.”

    Sorry in advance if this doesn’t help.

  27. B.Stover
    12:46 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Melanie: The interview is on Chet’s Facebook page.

  28. Siber-H
    1:02 pm on August 16th, 2012

    We are going to read the short story again this weeknd.

    Stover, Your advice sounds doable for Rio. I hope the plunderers that don’t have ACWI can get it soon. I would like to help, but, well, the cheapskate doesn’t even have a printer.
    There is no point in mentioning that the technical ability to fetch the story is beyond me.

    Melanie, I really, really, want to see the promo.

    Barb, The hard parts of the move are all behind you now!!! We are excited for you.

  29. dawson
    1:02 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Masquers: The audio started on its own a half a minute after I clicked on the link, or so I thought. I may have accidentally clicked somewhere…dumb luck happens.

  30. Rose
    1:06 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Bear, I am relieved to hear that you are safe from the fires. Whew!

    B&M, Congratulations!

    Rio, if I could, I would. I don’t have a stopover in Denver. Only Chicago, and Seattle. I know the Prof would love to meet you…I’ve told him alot about you.

  31. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:14 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Stover!…That is very helpful information indeed!…snort!…Tonight I will attempt to download the E-Story from my Kindle to my computer and then I will email it to Dawson, Barb and Beau – wait, he doesn’t have an email account! He will still be SOL!…heh!heh!heh!…snorkel!

  32. dawson
    1:29 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Aw shucks y’all.
    Thanks for thinking of those of us who can’t get ACWI yet.

    1:48 pm on August 16th, 2012

    We had trouble getting the book from Amazon, but we have a book shelf thingy in the iPaw, clicked on that, searched, found it, clicked, paid, read it. Easier that peasy.

  34. Barb & Maggie
    2:32 pm on August 16th, 2012

    We are not going to preorder the new book. Since we are planning to go to the signing we will just have to wait a few extra days.

    Rio, Thank you for thinking of us. Really appreciate your help. How long is the story?

  35. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:35 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Dawson!….There is another way if you are up to it…snort!…Download the free Kindle application and I can “loan” you my book…sniff!…Here is the link *i hope* to the download button…grunt!

  36. Masquers
    2:46 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Rose: A Seattle stopover you say? Hmm…..

  37. mlaiuppa
    2:47 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Yeah, I picked upon the Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit bowl right away.

    Kinda sad. I like Peter Rabbit and those Wedgewood bowls are not cheap.

    Being the frugal person I am if Bernie didn’t like anything, a garage sale can both free you of annoying ex-person annoyances plus bring in a little extra cash. Which we all know Bernie is in a constant state of needing.

    R.I.P. little Peter Rabbit bowl that never did anyone any harm.

    I wonder if Charlie liked that bowl? Probably his baby bowl. *sniff*

  38. dawson
    2:47 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Uh Rio: Gee, you are warming the cockles of my heart but I don’t have an Amazon account.

  39. B.Stover
    2:52 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Yes, a friend can “borrow” a Kindle book for two weeks. During that time the person who lent the book cannot read it.

  40. dawson
    2:52 pm on August 16th, 2012

    I’m going to try to open an account. Please hold on.

  41. B.Stover
    2:59 pm on August 16th, 2012

    I just downloaded all my Kindle books to my computer. Thanks Rio!

  42. mlaiuppa
    3:01 pm on August 16th, 2012

    I really hate to be a wet blanket here but you guys really need to take this conversation somewhere else.

    You are conspiring to violate copyright by “sharing” this story. The story is copyrighted by Spencer Quinn who has been gracious enough to provide you with this blog space which you are using to steal his intellectual property. That is kinda impolite.

    A dollar isn’t really very much money to ask for this story. I paid $2 since I couldn’t open the version from the apple store on my macbook and had to buy it again as any ePub.

    I’m sorry if someone cannot afford a dollar to read this story but providing copies of the one you bought is technically against the law. Even if Spencer Quinn only loses a penny for every story that is shared instead of purchased, they add up.

    Please, either buy your friend the story, or buy it again for every time you share it, or just have your friend buy it. That way Spencer Quinn gets his royalties and everyone gets to read the story and everyone is happy.

    Authors live off of their royalties. So no matter how small, every time you share without paying, you are taking money from authors they use to feed their families. If it happens enough and they can’t support themselves, then they go get day jobs and don’t write any more and we have no more stories to enjoy.

    Or they take away their blogs so we don’t enjoy their news and have no place to comment and share.

    This applies to music too.

    And yes I know what I’m talking about. I’m a certified teacher librarian, national board certified and have a masters in library and information science. In other words, I teach copyright compliance for a living.

  43. mlaiuppa
    3:03 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Loaning through Kindle is perfectly fine and legal.

    Some of the other methods described here are not.

    Some e-readers have methods for you to legally “loan” books and some do not. Please check your reader’s operating instructions to see if they allow loaning or not.

  44. B.Stover
    3:05 pm on August 16th, 2012

    The pages sync automatically. How cool!

  45. B.Stover
    3:09 pm on August 16th, 2012

    A friend loaned a book to me through the Kindle once and I ended up buying it anyway because I hadn’t finished it in the two-week time limit. I would have purchased it regardless because I liked the book and wanted it. Rather clever of Amazon I think.

  46. dawson
    3:12 pm on August 16th, 2012

    I have to go take a nap. I’m not trying to cheat anyone out of a dollar, really. I am just someone who doesn’t have an e reader and is technologically challenged. I think I’ll wait until it comes out in paperback. Heh!

  47. Siber-H
    3:20 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Why can’t Dawson and Barb open an Amazon account and read ACWI on their computer?
    Can it possibly be so simple to work this way?

  48. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:24 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Dawson!…Its perfectly legal-eagle for me to loan you the book through the free Kindle Application…snort!… After you create an Amazon account, download the app and I will figure out how to send it to youse….sniff!…Don’t let the stranger behind the curtain scare you!…heh!

  49. dawson
    3:26 pm on August 16th, 2012

    SiberH: You have become so computer wise! I believe it does work that way because now that I have downloaded the Kindle thingee Rio posted and gotten an Amazon account I think I can order the book right to my Kindle thingee. I will try it after my nap. All this techno activity has tired me out. Zzzzzzzsnort!zzzzzz.

  50. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:33 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Dawson!…YIPPPEEEE!…Be sure to tell Barb how to do it after you are done…heh!

  51. mlaiuppa
    3:37 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Here’s a direct link to the interview.

    Very nice interview.

  52. mlaiuppa
    3:42 pm on August 16th, 2012

    I don’t have any e-readers so getting the ebook was a challenge as I had to get a version I could read on a laptop.

    I bought mine through What you’re looking for is an “epub” format. You can then download for free Adobe ePub reader and that will open the book and allow you to read it on your laptop. It’s sorta like Adobe Reader for PDFs. They have versions for both Mac and PC.

    I think Barnes & Noble has a laptop reader for their Nook versions of books. I don’t know if amazon has a laptop reader for the Kindle books.

    Maybe someday all the different proprietary formats will condense to one universal format that both readers and laptops (if they’ll still exist) can all access, but I’m not holding my breath.

    Lending books through the built in permissions of an e-reader is perfectly legal. Printing out hard copies and passing them out is not. Nor just sending the book as an attachment to someone.

    It’s just a dollar.

  53. Rose
    3:51 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Masquers, yes I do have a Seattle stopover…It is very brief, only an hour. I also have a stopover in Chicago….any Plunderers out that way? 🙂

  54. BearSpiritDog
    4:06 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Mlaiuppa: I’m sure you are right about copyright infringement, but we really aren’t trying to cheat anyone (especially OFA) out of a buck…swear to Dog!

    Barb&Magpie: The download from Amazon is easy…just go to Kindle and where it says “don’t have a Kindle?” there is a link to download to your computer.

  55. SnowBella
    4:49 pm on August 16th, 2012

    OFA! It took me a second before I realized it is Our Favorite Author. And, to answer Rio’s question from last night—SQPA is awesome and as cool in person as you would expect. I also found him to be very funny (no surprise), gracious and humble.

  56. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:14 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Voice!…Because of our Author’s nice Voice I might even obey him if he told me to Sit! or Stay! but I would never Roll Over!…snort!…I don’t roll-over for no one. That is if I ever get to meet him before that damned chicken does….sniff!

  57. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:27 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Moderation!..Hey! Mollys Mom’s post from this morning finally showed up…snort!snort!

  58. Barb & Maggie
    5:30 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Just so you know, I have spent hundreds on OFA’s books, and I sure as hell am not too cheap to spend $.99. I have purchased every book in the series for myself, and have bought the books as gifts for half a dozen relatives and friends. I also have purchased a number of PA’s books.

    I don’t have a kindle or nook or a laptop, so I didn’t think there was a way to read the story. I was not trying to cheat anyone and I am sure everyone knows that.

  59. Masquers
    5:39 pm on August 16th, 2012

    It’s no use. The connecting link works, but from there it’s all downhill. A button to the actual interview does not appear (although it was on screen for a micro second).
    Alas, it is not meant to be.

  60. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:43 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Maskers!…Maybe I can download Spencer to my laptop and then send him to you via email…snort!….Whoops! Probably another violation of The Human Copy-Right law….huffle!

  61. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:46 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Barb!…I think all of us have spent a hot-diggity-dawg amount on Spencer and PA’s books over the years…snort!…Did you hear that I get the latest one for FREE!FREE!FREE!??…wheeze!…I’m skipping! I’m twirling!.. Now I’m skipping and twirling!….Woooooo!

  62. Masquers
    5:51 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Riö: That would be kool. Spence IS coming this way soon. I can hardly believe it! (I hope he likes kats!)

  63. Barb & Maggie
    5:54 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Rio, My comments were directed to someone else who insulted me by saying I was too cheap to spend a dollar. I know all of us on the blog are quick to open our wallets or checkbooks when a new book appears on the scene.

  64. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:56 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Maskers!….Are you going to travel to the big city of Seattle to see him?…snort!…You might as well catch a baseball game while you are in town buddy!..heh!

  65. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:59 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Barb!..I know!…heh!…I don’t think they were pointing fingers at specific people, like Dawson, they were just pointing out the law….snort!…But I say if you can’t break the law once in awhile life isn’t worth living…chuffle!

  66. Melanie
    6:12 pm on August 16th, 2012

    I finally got to hear the interview. Very good!

    Tomorrow is a looonnnggg day. Having my Kat scan. I was hoping that Basil or Sage would be able to do it, but they are booked up. I have to drink 15 oz of something before bed. What? I’ll be up ALL night! And then I have to drink another 15 oz of something at 8 am and then DRIVE. Dog, hope I make it to the test!

    Here’s hoping for good news or at least not worse news. snicker.

    Just talked to YSAS again. He did some actual work today for this series. wow. They can’t use him tomorrow because he’s going to be a real bartender.

    B.Stover, still haven’t figured out what the book series was. Liked it though.

    Time to watch another Foyle’s War.

  67. Melanie
    6:14 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Forgot. OTAS and GLAD are thinking of another dog, but smaller than Papi and not quite as adventurous. I told them they needed one with a large head so it wouldn’t get caught in their fence!

    I’m such a help.

  68. BearSpiritDog
    6:26 pm on August 16th, 2012

    We’ll be thinking good thoughts for you tomorrow, Melanie.

    Just had a hamburgler now signing off way early because it is hot, hot, hot! and I am off to find a kool place to nap.
    See youse tomorrow – Bear

  69. Princess Sam
    6:44 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Dawson is not trying to get something for free. She is a huge$$$ supporter of everything on ChettheDog!

  70. Masquers
    6:58 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Riö: It would be “criminal” not to make the trip down to Seattle since he is coming all this way to see Me, Me, Me!!!

  71. dawson
    7:01 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Mlaiuppa is just trying to make sure our favorite author gets his due…as well as other starving (or not) artists…and I’m all for that but what I want to know is why is Amazon trying to charge me $2.32 to download this ebook to my new Kindle thingee? Is it because I gave them a Canadian address? I still do not have that book.
    And I didn’t get a nap because suddenly I heard loud drums coming from the front yard and lo! here came 10 or so young folks with all manner of drums, marching down the street and banging away. They went round and round the block, practicing their drumming and marching skills.
    Now Turtleman is here to play some cards…He made dinner for the old folks and now he is cleaning the kitchen as well. That’s because as soon as he came in the door, I went out saying, “Get mom up at 5”, so he knew I needed a break.

  72. Wose
    7:01 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Masquers, how exciting! You will be meeting our favorite author!

  73. Siber-H

    Dawson, I don’t know how long it will be until you see Mr. Staff again, but you will get to read ACWI then because he has it on his Kindle.
    Amazon is being unfair.

    Unfair!…heh!…I’d pay way more than 2.32 for the Pre-Quill to Dog On It by golly!…snort!….99 cents out of my treat budget always hurts but not nearly as much as some other Dud Books I’ve bought over the years…grunt!…This ones a Keeper!

    We are going to sign off early too, because Barb is heading out at 7:30 in the morning. She is picking up a beef order at the locker and will deliver to Josh and Jess before her closing at 11:00.

    Night all and sweet dreams.

    Forgot to wish Melanie good luck tomorrow and to tell Dawson to take a deep breath and try to relax. Also – beat Turtleman at cards!

    B-a-d!…The latest episode of Breaking Bad is making us all sit on pins and needles….gasp!…I can’t believe NONE of you watch this show…wheeze!gasp!cough!

    That episode was good. “Foyle’s War” has great acting and I like the way they intertwine “everyday” murders with the war.

    Yawning here. Going to bed so I can get up. Masquers, BlueKat, Gus and BooBear, Alice or Abbie, any of you free tomorrow to do my Kat scan?

    TTFN (I’m reading a Dana Stabenow book. Some how I got two behind on that list)

    AAAAAAWWWWWWW!…Oh no. oh no…That show breaks our hearts into pieces…sniffle!…We have to go on our walk now – this show will all end very very very badly….Wolfie knows that. Wolfie has always known first-paw…sob!sob!sob!

    I won at cards and now will watch the Dakota Wars. The estory will have to wait…but not so long as waiting for Mr. Staff to come over here with it on his machine…not that long.
    Melanie: I hope you have good news after your kat scan tomorrow.

    We saw an interview with Brian Cranston and the guy asked if there might be a movie once the series ended. Cranston’s reply was that there might not be enough characters left alive to make a movie with. Does not bode well!

    Macy!….Awwwwwwww! sob!sob!sob!….I can’t believe he was allowed to say that in an interview, but that is what we have thought all along….wheeze!…He will be all alone at the end of it. He will have destroyed his whole family with this thing in order to save himself…gasp!…This is a guess at the future, mind you…sniffle!

    Interview!….Speaking of interviews!…snort!…I am going to see if my friend can get the latest one with Spencer up an running right now…wheeze!

    I had dinner with a friend and we saw Woody Allen’s new movie To Rome With Love. There were a few good lines but neither of us liked the movie–not much story.

  85. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:53 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Woody!…I might be the only pug who didn’t like his other movie either. The one about a night in Paris…grunt!…I seriously did not get the whole thing and the actor combinations made my back crawl…wheeze!…He used to do such good work.

  86. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:56 pm on August 16th, 2012

    Interview!…We finally listened to the interview with Spencer and it was really good despite the interveiweeees voice. …snort!…She actually asked a lot of good questions and I found myself really liking her by the end of it …heh!…One cannot and should not judge someone by the tone of their vocals…sniff!….Lesson learned for now…yeep!

    SiberH!…Are you watching the game?…snort!…What are they doing with the slow motion camera thing?….grunt!…JUST show me the baseball game…dammit!…Who cares about the fellow with jello being thrown at him…wheeze!

    I liked Midnight in Paris because of the main character’s trips back in time especially to the Paris of the Lost Generation (Hemingway and Fitzgerald).

    Stover!…I’m glad you are still up! Did you download the free kindle app to see your books on your PC??…snort!…I am having trouble viewing the books in my Kindle directory when I have hte USP connection..grump!

    Free!…Well, I downloaded the free app and I am able to view AKWI on my laptop…snort!… I think this is the way to go for Barb, Dawson and Beau….heh!…The key word being FREE…chorkel!

    In defense of us Plunderers, I’d like to mention that we are Spence’s most devoted fans. All of us have bought every single book. Some of us have bought books in more than one format.

    We would never dream of violating any copyright laws, it’s just we have been anxiously waiting for this story, and we all want to read it now, now, now.

    Please do not be quick to judge or scold us. Our intentions are good.

    Rio: Yes, I downloaded all the books on my Kindle to my computer using the link you gave. I mentioned that earlier and said thank you. It worked easily.

    B: That will be the day…I bet Rio’s tail would straighten.

    It has been a rough day. I’m going to bed in hopes tomorrow is better. Night all.

    Before I go, congrats again on the closing to Barb!

    Night youse.

    Oh oh.

    A rough day for SnowBella? That is not good news. That makes my whining about not being able to read the one buck book fade into nothing. Hope today is a better day for you and AJ and that the doggies are alright.

    I am not happy to hear that SnowBella had a rough day. Sending hugs to you and the Giant, and the all the doggies too.
