    Good morning all. Hope you all have as good a day as this little guy.

    This little bird loves our butterfly bush.

    OOOO Tupper and Gilly, Your Mom took a great picture! Love it!

    Good morning, T&G’s Mama and Staff and everyone. We listened to the interview, all 22 min. of it and enjoyed it almost as much as seeing OFA in person.
    What a wonderful foto of the Ruby Throated hummer. Mom felt lucky to get the butterfly. She’d probably splort if she could get a hummer with the iphone.
    Glad OFA is near home base and hope he is resting up for the last 3 visits.
    Rio’s friend, what a memorable evening you had 🙂
    Let’s have a something else Thursday.

    Tupper&Gilly: What a Great Photo! Those little guys are difficult to capture on film. We Here are jealous.

    Listening to the Interview with Spence as we speak!

    Rio, It was fun listening to Spence at the interview and you could hear him choke up when he talked about people giving him ‘little gifts.’ heh heh heh. That is your fault Rio! Aren’t you proud of yourself?

    That is an interesting interview. For me the best thing about the Chet and Bernie books is Chet’s honesty (a characteristic of dogs that I especially like…who could not).

    SPOILER ALERT: At the very end of Paw when Chet doesn’t feel like it’s a “wrap,” he grabs a pant leg. It’s so funny!

    Good morning all.

    DianeC. we know you are okay and just lurking, but know you are missed.
    ML, hope to heard from you a bit earlier today so we don’t hear it tomorrow when you go to your work. Hoping CHobbit is good and that AJ and the pixie enjoyed his b-day.

    Enjoyed the interview…thanks, Spence!
    DianeC: ditto to what HOH said.

  10. B.Stover
    11:29 am on August 14th, 2014

    SPOILER ALERT: Chet’s pawing at the seat-back is extremely funny also…. I wish it had worked.

    We thought it was great that Spencer said Chet’s thought process is the closest to his own.
    We know about that. But that’s a story for another time.

  12. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:30 am on August 14th, 2014

    Staff!…I don’t think he got all choked up, he just had a frog in his throat…snort!…Although, I may have to re-listen to that part just to be sure…heh!

  13. Siber-H
    11:34 am on August 14th, 2014

    Thanks for the link and the interview, Spence. Good interview!

    We only have white butterflies here in the desert.

    Diane, ditto to what HOH said.

    I wonder how the hawk is doing this morning.

  14. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:40 am on August 14th, 2014

    Hawk!…Lil Lester was so pissed off this morning…heh!heh!…He was standing at the door to the cage with his little wings spread. The minute her mother opened the door he hopped out into the back garden – hippity-hop!…sniff!…Someone thinks he will be safe there because his folks were circling around screeching…yeeep!…So he will be taken care of..grunt!

  15. BearSpiritDog
    11:41 am on August 14th, 2014

    Siber-H: Wooo!
    We are Twins! White Butterflies here too!

    Rio: Same question here: How is the Little Fledgling Hawk this morning?

  16. BearSpiritDog
    11:43 am on August 14th, 2014

    Rio: Thanks for Answering the Question. Did Your Friend’s Mother ever call the Help Line?

    11:52 am on August 14th, 2014

    Bear!…What do you think?…snort!

  18. Staff
    12:15 pm on August 14th, 2014

    We think “no”….

  19. Diane C.
    12:18 pm on August 14th, 2014

    HOH, Masquers, SiberH et al–Still lurking, but vastly relieved to see Lester (LESTER???) is OK.
    Massive v e t bills, medication given in peanut butter stuck to upper lip mustache (Conan), otherwise back to lurking.
    Your kind words most appreciated. Did not mean to sound like telegram.

    Hey, Diane! Good to Hear from You.

    Rio: We Guess Not.

    Always remember…to each his/her own. Can’t blame others for following their own path…right/wrong/good or bad.

  23. Riö -The Evil Pug
    2:36 pm on August 14th, 2014

    HoHo!…What nonsense. There would be chaos and total corruption if everyone did what they wanted when they wanted…grunt!…Oh wait, that’s the stinkin’ society we live in now…grumble!

    Hellllloooooooooo – anyone out there

    I’ve got a photo of a hummer too. Taken by me and his head was not cut off.

  26. Herd of Hounds
    5:17 pm on August 14th, 2014

    T&G, that’s what we were thinking but we thought we were overreacting. Glad to know someone else in still in the galaxy!

  27. Herd of Hounds
    5:17 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Hummers, elusive little critters.

  28. Riö -The Evil Pug
    5:45 pm on August 14th, 2014

    MollysMaw!…Too bad you did not make the hummer the center of focus. He is barely visible with all that foliage…heh!heh!…But he does indeed have his head upon him…snort!

  29. Riö -The Evil Pug
    5:50 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Look!…There’s your little hummer…snort!…This is where extremely good focusing ablility comes into play…heh!

  30. Barb & Maggie

    Back from work and time to relax on the patio.

    Nice pictures of the hummers. I wonder if someone at Rio’s house is going to try to recapture Lester tonight? BTW, who named him?

    Baby sitting tomorrow since Josh and Jess lost their sitter as of yesterday. She went back to college. They are without a sitter next week till school starts, but or so sad, I am working Mon-Thursday. Would you believe working is easier than babysitting?

  31. Riö -The Evil Pug
    6:29 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Name!…Come now, you must have heard of Lester Hawkeye…snort!… I’m pretty sure these were Lil Lesters sentiments this morning when he was still in the cage…chorkel!

  32. Mollypop's Mom
    6:33 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Rio, the good focusing comes from my good Sony camera and a telephoto lens.

  33. Barb & Maggie
    6:53 pm on August 14th, 2014

    OK, I’m going to do a B. Stover and say “Who is Lester Hawkeye?” I did look him up and see that he is a comic character, but no, I had never heard of him. Am I the only one?

    Now the name makes sense.

  34. Herd of Hounds
    7:05 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Here we were thinking more of Chester the ^*lester and couldn’t see how it fit.

  35. Siber-H
    7:09 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Barb, You are not the only one.
    I do like the name Lester for the little guy.

  36. Thieves!
    7:28 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Luna tells that even if Lester’s folks don’t claim him, we are not to step up and adopt him as our own. Something about fangs vs. feathers and lack of restraint—Lester’s or ours, we don’t know.

  37. Staff
    7:35 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Lester. Fly away and hide from Maw! It is your only hope. Fly baby fly.

  38. Staff
    7:36 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Gee Barb, too bad about that work stuff. Heh heh heh.

  39. Staff
    7:36 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Lester Hawkeye is not on my radar either. The only Lester I know plays music with Earl Scruggs.

  40. B.Stover
    7:40 pm on August 14th, 2014

    I had never heard of Lester Hawkeye.

    I hope the baby hawk will be okay.

    Love the hummingbird pictures.

  41. Barb & Maggie
    7:45 pm on August 14th, 2014

    OK, now I am not feeling so out of it!

    I know, Staff, I am feeling terrible about my prior commitment. Hahahaha.

    Groundhog day is on right now. It is fun looking at all the familiar buildings in Woodstock. They haven’t changed much in 20 years.

  42. Herd of Hounds
    7:46 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Staff, your Lester may have played music, but was rarely flatt.

  43. Staff
    7:52 pm on August 14th, 2014

    I am going to watch the cat video’s on Animal Planet web streaming. It is live from the Walker Art Center….

    Be there or be square.

  44. Staff
    7:53 pm on August 14th, 2014

    HOH…heh heh heh…

    Snigglefritz I am an hour off. No matter there are a few more hours left! Wahoooooooo!

  45. Masquers

    Krazy kat videos!

  46. Riö -The Evil Pug
    8:31 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Unreal!…So her mother puts lil Lester in the back garden and says his folks have been feeding him today…snuffle!…Now she has the water turned on back there…grunt!…Poor lil Lester. I hope he can swim….sniff!

  47. Riö -The Evil Pug
    8:32 pm on August 14th, 2014

    New-Name!…Lester “Hard Luck” Hawk…gruffle!

  48. Staff
    9:05 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Oh jeez. Poor Lester! On the other hand, is it hot out there? Is he in the shade? Maybe Lester is thirsty?


    Well, if he lives through this he will be a strong bird!

    Good Night, Lester
    Good Night, All

    Bear!….How far are youse guys anyways?…snort!

  51. Barb & Maggie
    9:21 pm on August 14th, 2014

    To paraphrase Staff, Lester will be lucky if he makes it with all the help from Maw.

    We also are going to head off to bed early tonight. Reading a little PAO before it is lights out. Rio was right about the beginning of Chapter 4 being lol funny. That’s where we left off last night.

  52. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:39 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Chapter 4!….Oh my dawg! Don’t get me started again…snort!HA!snort!

    10:18 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Our Lady hasn’t been able to start Paw, yet. She is trying to avoid any comments about OFA’s latest and greatest book. Yeep! Time to put our heads back in the snow to avoid seeing spoilers.

  56. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:38 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Six!…I believe we are only on chapter 6 right now in PAW…snort!…She had an incredible experience today during a break reading “Pressure Drop” about the main character giving birth…YEEEEP!…In only the way Thee Charming Mr. Abrahams can express it. It’s like he actually knows, but how is that possible?…snuff!…Well, being an observer over 4 of his own children’s births I guess he picked up on how painful it must be…gah! and gah!

  57. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:16 pm on August 14th, 2014

    Uncle!…I call Uncle. No one around to banter with so I am outta here…sniff!…Oh, just so youse know the Rockies are ahead by 7 ta 4 in the 8th inning…snort!…The Reds must be really bad this year…sniff!…My poor bedraggled team. What will become of them?…wheeze!
