BlogPaws (More)

Spence at the BlogPaws conference in Salt Lake City calls Admin back home:

“How did your very first powerpoint talk go?” Admin says.

“Guess who was there. Rebecca Savidis!”

“Of Snowhook Kennel? ‘Our’ team in the Iditarod race?”

“That’s the only Rebecca Savidis we know. What a treat to meet her! We’re now owners of a Snowhook t-shirt.”

“Mine, by any sort of fairness doctrine.”

“As for powerpoint, the clicker works better if you keep your finger off the little spot where the actual signal ray emerges.”

“How long did it take you to figure that out?”

“I just did. And also it was great to meet the other speakers, Dorothy Hearst and Penny Sansevieri. I learned a lot from both of them.”

“And today?”

“I’m going to listen to a presentation about promoting animal welfare. Lunch is also in the plans.”

    Learning!….I’m glad Spencer is learning new tricks. Thats always a good thing….heh!heh!

    Wheeze!…We just came in from watching someone work in the garden…sneeze!…Its already hot as hell outside. We are probably in for the day now.

    Somehow, I figured Admin would lay claim to the Snowhook shirt.

    Rio: I’m in Denver right now. I can prove it, but I thought I say Beau wave as I was landing.

    Still recovering from working yesterday. Whew, another power nap. We are giving up the dump!

    The town has decided to go to paying for the number of bags, explaining in excruciating detail the only kind of bags they will take, you then have to buy tags from the town office, during their 2 hours a week, or buy them at the recycling center for more money. They are also making you take your own trash and recycling out of your car.

    Zoe has been trying to expelling to the PTB that some of their townspeople are OLD. They don’t seem to care. Can’t lift the one bag that the youngsters can? Well, you just have to pay double.

    We took care of that! Today is the last dump run. Starting this coming week we will have a group who takes your garbage and recycling away. All we have to do is put it in the container and wheel the container out.

    It will be cheaper for us and easier on us.

    Anyhoo!! “Our” Snowhook team is da bomb!

    “expelling”? “expelling”? How the heck do you get “expelling” from “explaining”?

    11:52 am on June 23rd, 2012

    Sigh!! We just love SQ, Chet and Bernie, Rebeccca, AJ and Snowhook and all Plunderers! Great day yesterday! Tupper and Gilly, your Mom rocks! Wish we could fly east for the presentation. We have the best cyber-friends ever!

    I think Spence should have the t-shirt.

    Good morning….almost afternoon in the east….all.

    11:54 am on June 23rd, 2012

    Melanie, sometimes we just have to make allowances for being “of a certain age.” Dad has a lawn service come and would not have it any other way. It’s always a treat to come home on Thursday after work and have the house and yard look so good and know that Friday is the next day. Enjoy the trash service…it will be worth it.

    Quilt!…Our quilt is becoming famous!…Wooooo!

  11. Riö –The Evil Pug
    12:01 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Spencer!…He should have kept the Snowhook shirt on to present…heh!heh!…Probably the last time he would have gotten to wear it…snort!

  12. Riö –The Evil Pug
    12:03 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Rebecca!…My friend says she wishes she could have met you there at that huge airport, but its a good thing you two didn’t make plans…sniff!..Her mother over-did it yesterday and is not doing well today at all…grunt!….She couldn’t have left if she wanted to…((((sigh))))

    Good Afternoon All!
    We went on a couple of errands and when we got home, we looked in our mailbox. What should appear but our very own Finish Line photo of Annabelle and Twig, Lead Dogs of ‘our’ Iditarod Team!!!! Woo Hoo!
    Mom wants to dedicate a whole room to our Snowhok memorabilia.

  14. Melanie
    12:08 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Thanks Gus & BooBear. It will let us have more time on Wednesday and Saturday.

    I think Pearl should wear the shirt.

    Love the photo of the Plunderer Quilt and Snowhook Patch Spence showed in his PowerPoint presentation yesterday. Thanks, Rebecca.
    We were thinking Admin went with Spence to Blogpaws, but apparently he stayed home to hold down the fort.

    Melanie: That was rather Halloweenish, but we loved it!
    Great idea to handle the trash/recycle problem. Someone is making good $$$ helping folks out of a ridiculous situation…good for them, good for you.

    Rio: Sorry you couldn’t meet Rebecca at the airport. Bummer.

  17. Snowhook Bella
    12:33 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Did someone say something about another Plunderer possibly making it to Stinky Mama’s MC debut?

  18. Gus & BooBear
    12:44 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Guys, in all the excitement, we can’t forget the Thursday is SQ’s birthday!

  19. Gus & BooBear
    12:44 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    And we hope our picture of Annabelle and Twig comes soon! We are so excited!

  20. Masquers
    12:59 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Howlers: If you got your photo from Snowhook already ours should be on the way soon. I will be joining G&BB to watch the mailbox for its arrival.
    Kirby: That is great news about your Gamecocks. Fear the Fish!!!

  21. OleyHowlers
    1:08 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Thanks for reminding us, Masquers. We read Kirby’s post very early this morning. How exciting! Great fun, Kirby. Fear the Fish!

  22. Masquers
    1:15 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Our weather has been very un-summer-like since the official beginning of summer on the 20th. Local forecasters have promised warm sunny days, but so far it isn’t happening.

    G&BB: Thanks for the reminder about Thursday. I put it on the calendar.

  23. Siber-H
    1:20 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Thanks for more photos and fine reporting from Rebecca!

    There is a serious wildfire burning about 40 miles south of Salt Lake City. Spence and SLC are not in any danger, but I don’t know which direction the smoke will be moving.
    They already know this fire was accidentally started by target shooters.

  24. Masquers
    1:30 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Siber-H: Bad news about the SLC fire. Hope it is under control soon. Mom has friends that live in that area.

  25. Riö –The Evil Pug
    1:47 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Barb!…Are you home today or are you out driving around while people look in your cubboards?…snort!

  26. Macy the Min-pin
    2:00 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Royals, heh-heh, short joke. YES

    We are going to go try again to get into the Rosenfelt whose name we can’t remember, but dad is not feeling well and is sitting in OUR reading chair. humph

    Rangers play that pretty purple team again today. We love our Rangers, but the only way mom would go to a game in the summer is if she were invited to sit in a luxury box. She has done that twice and it really spoils you.

  27. Masquers
    2:12 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    WoooHooo! Annabelle & Twig are here! Every time I look at Annabelle’s smile it makes me want to smile too.
    Macy: Spoiled is right! Mom went to a Dodger game in LA years ago and enjoyed that luxury. They also served a fabulous gourmet meal before the game. Sigh. Those were the days.
    Like flying first class – Once you’ve done it, it’s difficult to go back to coach.

  28. Melanie
    2:47 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Dog, Annabelle and Twig sure get around.

    Looked at the radar. Heavy storms coming out way . .

  29. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    3:06 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    The weather here is perfect. 70*, with a light breeze. Mom is trying to find the motivation to finish some chairs she is painting.

    How wonderful it was that Rebecca and Spence finally met! So far, this season seems almost magical. It just gets better and better.

  30. Masquers
    3:18 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Er, thanks Wolfie – rub it in.

  31. Riö –The Evil Pug
    3:37 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Weather!…Kat! Has it reached 100 degrees here yet?..wheeze!..It sure feels like it…grunt!

  32. Tupper and Gilly
    3:59 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    We are about to get a thunderstorm, so we will be here and then gone.
    Mama just got back from her shopping trip. She got all kinds of ingredients for making lasagna – with gluten free noodles, and she checked every single ingredient to make sure it was ok.
    AND she went to the butcher and got BONES! Just for us and our company! So while Plunderers plow into lasagna, us Nation Within ones will get to gnaw on juicy bones!

    Are all the rest of you sure you don’t want to make the trip?

  33. Snowhook Bella
    4:03 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Annabelle is enjoying her retirement. So far, she seems convinced Elmer, Leonard and Florence are retirement gifts for her. Each time we near to feed, water, scoop or love she stops by to supervise our work. She has taken a shine to Leonard, the dog not the Storyteller. One evening AJ went out to check on the dogs. It had been raining all day. Leonard was standing outside. “What are you doing outside, bud?” We have a kennel rule that when it rains get in your house where it is warm and dry. Being new, maybe Leonard wasn’t aware of our kennel norms. As if he understood AJs question, Leonard looked to his house. AJ did as he was told and looked in the house where he found a sleeping Annabelle.

    4:06 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    WOW!…WOW!WOW!….The Rockies are up 5 to NUTHING against the Rangers right now!!!….WoOOOOOoooOOOOOoooooOO!…Boy oh Boy! If they can pull this off it will be so great!…snort!

  35. Riö –The Evil Pug
    4:51 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Dreaming!…I must be dreaming!..snort!…The Rockies are up 11 ta 1….heh!…Everybody is hitting like crazy!…yeeeep!yeeep!

  36. Siber-H
    4:53 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    The Pretty Purple team is hitting that baseball today and the pitching is holding the Rangers to one Run!!

    Rio, You have probably reached 100 degrees already today. It is hotter where you live than it is here…very strange weather.

  37. Siber-H
    4:54 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    We are both having the same dream, Rio.

  38. bluecat
    4:56 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    This has been a magical week. Today we received something very special in the mail. The Royals’ Mum is amazing and does amazing work…

  39. bluecat
    4:56 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    OMD. I can’t believe Mom figured out how to do that – truly magic!

  40. Siber-H
    4:59 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Bluecat, That is a very good photo and love the colors on that bear.

  41. Barb & Maggie
    5:05 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Hi everyone, we are back.

    Macy, We have now read almost all the Rosenfelts. Have the last Andy Carpenter still to read. That is Leader of the Pack. Think there will be another AC out this year. We read 1 of the 3 stand alones, Heart of A Killer and liked it. Would not say it was Twilight zone-ish.

    It is so dry here that farmers are getting very worried. Not enough timber in our area to worry about forest fires, but the ground is parched.

    Rio, we received your friends’ quilling project and it is beautiful. Received in perfect condition, and the colors will work great. Kelly has a birthday coming up July 27th, so will probably give it to her then.

    June 28th is Spences’ b-day and also the day Dan is scheduled to come hone. Hope everything is ready for him.

    Now, out to the garden to pick some green beans for dinner.

  42. Masquers
    5:21 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Bluecat: Your fetish bear is beautiful. Great photo!

    Riö: Wow! The Rockies are coming back with a vengeance. That’s the good news.
    Now…about your weather. Sorry pal, looks like temps in the 100 degree range through next week. Hmm…it’s 56 and raining here. Maybe we can work something out.

  43. Masquers
    5:26 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Actually, Riö, it’s 103 there.

  44. Rose
    5:44 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Bluecat: Your fetish bear is beautiful! It looks right at home in its place of honor.

    WooooHooooo Rio and SiberH: Youse guys are in the winner’s circle!

  45. Tupper and Gilly
    5:56 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    BlueCat – thank dog it finally arrived. It was shipped the same day as everything else and all other packages haf been delivered. We thought for sure the Goats had gotten it

    Siber and Rio – Natasha must be back on the Case of the Purple Rocks. Hopefully she has been successful in all her other missions

    Macy – short jokes??? Really???

    Barb – paws crossed for that perfect buyer to sign on the dotted line very soon.

  46. Melanie
    6:05 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    I agree with the above statements. Except I think Masquers is lying about it being 103.

    People might be ready for Spencer’s birthday. We are not quite ready for Dan. Had to take the day off again recovering from working like a dog.

  47. dawson
    6:14 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Yeehaw! Ride ’em cowgirl!
    This is Ruby Jo, my youngest grandchild, with her mother’s horse.
    Bluecat: Isn’t it fun to post a picture? I’m always amazed when it actually shows up. Love, love, your bear.
    Rio and Snowhook Bella: Thanks for those pictures.

  48. dawson
    6:17 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    I put an apostrophe in the wrong place. Does this mean I get pie, or do I have to mention the “b” word. No! Not that “b” word…the other “b” word.

  49. B.Stover
    6:25 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Dawson: Your apostrophe in “mother’s” is correct. (“Mother” is singular.)

  50. BearSpiritDog
    6:32 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Wolfie: You are right…it is truly Magical. We wouldn’t be the least surprised to hear Snowhook has attracted some Big Pocket sponsors after next week because of all the Royal Mum’s work.

    Barb&Magpie: Any Good News to report?

    Dawson: Love, love, love that photo of your granddaughter! Another prize winner.

  51. Gus & BooBear
    6:32 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Maggie, Leader of the Pack is the new Andy Carpenter book that will be released next month. You scared Mom…she thought she had missed one. She LOVED that series and is looking forward to the new one. We haven’t read any of the stand alone books by Rosenfelt. Do y’all recommend them?

    Rebecca, our picture of Twig and Annabelle came in todays mail. Bent but not folded (picture is okay…not creased at all). Guess postal workers in this area can’t read. Maybe that’s why we’re still waiting for the Market Dog Book!!

  52. Gus & BooBear
    6:34 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Dawson, what a cutie pie! Love the picture.

  53. dawson
    6:43 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    B.Stover: So…no pie?

  54. B.Stover
    6:46 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Dawson: LOL! Here’a a piece of chocolate cream pie…..

  55. Barb & Maggie
    6:49 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    We remember whe Ruby was born, and when you bought the book from Kirby for her. She has really grown, and is adorable!

    Thanks for the good wishes for the house sale. People today? Probably not – they were more horse people than house people. The gal who was here Friday is likely to make an offer. The inspection with her brother went fine. She told the agent she had to go back to the bank, and to call if another offer came in. She is a widow, and said something about talking to the trust dept, so maybe she life insurance money in an account there. It is promising.

    Now for dinner, a pork chop with potatoes, garlic and green beans from the magical garden. Maybe Wolfie could blur the gardens to a new place for us!

  56. Barb & Maggie
    6:55 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    We thought Leader of the Pack was already out, just getting ready to order it from the library. Guess we will have to wait on that one. The stand alone we read was Heart of A Killer, and also involved an attorney. It was good, but we like the Andy character better. Don’t Tell A Soul and On Borrowed Time are the 2 stand alones that we have not read.

    Harry Putter looks like a Westie. Barb’s mom had one for years and she was a darling dog.

    I’m back from Sam’s and now I’m making lists about what I need on my BIG trip. My first leg of the trip is to go back to Sam’s house which is in a northern suburb of Buffalo. If any of you can make it to Buffalo, hop in. Come with me.

    Barb!…I was tracking your package and someone here was very relieved that the package arrived and you were home to receive it…snort!

  62. Melanie
    7:22 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Riö, will work on the SDD tomorrow. Struggling to stay awake.

    Hi Dawson! Loverly Little One there in the pic.

    Just got an interesting robo call from the Fire Chief here in town. Turns out on Monday the Discovery Channel will be using one of our quarries to blow up an airplane’s wing. Has to do with the Bermuda Triangle and what happens if lightning hits a wing filled with fuel. We’ll be getting explosions through out the day. Muffled here because of Deer Hill but the Pack will probably enjoy themselves. No observers of any kind. Dang it!

  63. BearSpiritDog
    7:27 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Did someone mention Chocolate Cream Pie? Oh, boy!
    Rio or Siber-H, one of youse, let me know the final score from that “baseball” game today when you get a chance.

    Dawson: So that’s the lucky girl that ended up with Kirby’s wonderful little book…Travels With Scottie.

    Barb&Magpie: Trying to read Koontz’s new book – 77 Shadow Street, but so far having difficulty getting into the story. We love his books that have kids and dogs in them. Supposedly, the eBook, Moonlit Mind was a prelude to the former, but so far no connection between the two that we can see.

  64. BearSpiritDog
    7:36 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    We were going to wait to have supper later, but Barb with her pork chop, potato and green beans is making us hungry.
    And, B, don’t forget the Chocolate Cream Pie for dessert!
    Later – Bear

  65. Alice M. Johnson
    7:44 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    We had Swedish Meatballs from Joy of Cooking with 1/2 the salt. Plus smashed Potatoes and Corn. I am stuffed.

  66. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:50 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Hungry!…Now youse guys have me hungry….grunt!…And no one around here looks like they are making any moves to cook anything…wheeze!

  68. OleyHowlers
    7:57 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Dawson, both Ruby Jo and her mom’s horse are adorable. Great picture.
    Bluecat, the Royal Mum’s bear is beautiful and your picture of it is lovely.

    Pop has been getting paged all day along again. We aren’t having much fun. Mom and Pop were supposed to go to a party that is an annual event, only this year one of the couple passed away. So part of the party was to scatter his ashes and read some poems. Mom waited and waited for Pop to get finished with his work issue, and then gave up and went alone. But she missed the memorial part of the party. Drat. Pop got to the party much later, but his pager again went off in less than a half hour. So off he went to work again. Now we are waiting for Mom to come play with us.
    We are lonely huskies.

  69. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:58 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Rebecca!…I don’t think they have “Moose” on the menu in Atlanta…sniff!…You will have to eat normal food while you are there…heh!heh!

    8:14 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Molly’s Mom said I could hop in and ride with her to the big party. You all heard her, right? I’m going to pack up my dog toys and chew sticks right now. Rio, can I borrow your little knapsack?

  72. Siber-H
    8:16 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Bear, the final score was the the Rockies 11, the Rangers 7.

    Rebecca, Package me up some good southern cooking and send it to me…please…grits, hush puppies, chicken fried steak, sigh, I could go on and on.

  73. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:25 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Sammie!…I will have to empty it out first….grunt!….Lets see I have to take out my harmonica, my little Go-Phone, my Coat of Many Colors, hey thats where it was!…snort!…My radio, my little headset, my Mission Notes, all of Beau’s best chewies, and my baseball cap….wheeze!…Okay, lil’ Sammie, its all yours…sniff!…Just remember to give it back to me…wuffle!

  74. Masquers
    8:38 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Bella: That Atlanta airport is huge. It takes forever to get from one end to the other. Woe is you if you are trying to rush to catch a flight, which as Murphy’s Law would have it, is always miles from where you are.
    Siber: Good for the Rockies. WoooHoooo!
    Macy’s not too happy, but you can’t win ’em all.
    Bluecat: We really like the photo your mom took of the bear.

    Dawson, your granddaughter is absolutely adorable!

    I just finished a book callers Scent of the Missing, about a woman who works search and rescue, and how she gets and trains her first rescue dog. Very good read and interesting story.

    Masquers: Your “Woe is you” reminded me that among all the great books I got at a garage sale this weekend was a brand new never been read copy of Woe is I. I don’t know when I am going to find time to read all these books.
    Melanie: Get some good sleep while you can!

    Well Dawson you will have a little travel time this coming week so you can take a few books with you. Unless they put you over the weight limit…. always a possibility.

    B.Stover: I love chocolate cream pie. The bakery around the corner makes a killer one. I bought a piece a couple weeks ago and it was big enough to feed mom, dad and me. I was raving about it when Ruby Jo and her parents visited and they came home with a whole pie! Sure helps to have pie (or cheesecake) when you’re having a stressful day but it won’t help me fit into my wedding day dress one week from today! Could be a tight squeeze.

    Had a wonderful dinner, now falling asleep as we try to watch a movie, Larry Crowne. Not great so far. Night all.

    What is a girl to do without moose or caribou on the menu…?

    Sam: Are your really coming to the event next week or am I twirling for nothing?

    Hey! The phils won tonight, and are no longer in the cellar. The Marlins now have that honor. We hope this is the start of The Big Turnaround.

    Bee, we all love chocolate cream pie.

    Yeah, Dawson. What Rio said. Did we fall asleep and miss a large section of the blog or something?

    Are Dawson and Staff switching homes again and Dawon is going home to get married?

    Rebecca!…Are you all settled into your hotel room? Have you checked for BedBugs?…snort!…I can have Rockie and his Hillbilly pals over there in a jiffy if you need some kleaning up….sniff!…Just say the word. My friend loves being in a hotel room, I have no idea why. She just loves the freedome I guess…heh!….Last hotel room we were in was in Iowa. Not great but she still loved it…heh!sigh!…Someone here really needs a vacation away from this house…grunt!

    Just checked the forecast. Good grief. It’s 15 degrees warmer in Alaska. Our so called “summer” is a bust so far. Grump.

    Dawson: What’s going on…have you been keeping a secret from us? Fess up!

    Rio: I finally settled in late this evening and room service arrived a few minutes ago. I’m having Gouda Mac and cheese. Delish! Do you know where is away? Willow. I’m just sayin’.

    Regarding the Rangers, we don’t feel to bad, since the Purple Team doesn’t get that many opportunities to celebrate.

    Mom says that she does recommend the stand-alone Rosenfelts. They have a similar feel to the ACs, but no Taco Bell. On Borrowed Time was the one that we felt was a little Twilight Zone-y, but we really did get into it and liked it a lot. I think we have read them all now, so bring on the new one.

    Macy, What is your opinion of the numerous mentions of Taco Bell?

    We have not read On Borrowed Time or Don’t Tell A Soul.

    We just came back on to catch up, and now we are wondering too what is up with Dawson and the wedding day. May have to find out in the a.m.

    Greetings plunderers! Busy day here in the middle of the mitten. I was wonderfluffed today and mom drive all over Grand Rapids doing stuff. It’s been too hot for me to stay in the car, so when she stopped to pick up some mexican food to go, she took me out of the car and we waited for her lunch in the shade.

    Mom has finished her 2nd quilt project. I’ll remind her to take a picture of it tomorrow. She also is “sandwiching” her 3rd project. A quilt sandwich is the quilt top, the filler stuff, and the back. She will put in the yarn ties tomorrow to secure the sandwich together and then put on the binding. She’s got a lot of binding pointers and has continued to read instructions and she thinks that she finally gets it. Sissy helping with the binding on the 2nd project. Mom will do it on her own on this 3rd project. Third time’s the charm.

    Sissy is having chemo treatment #5 on Tuesday. Then just one more to go. So far, so good.

    Wishing much success to SQ/PA, Rebecca’s speechifying, Barb’s farm sale and Dan’s hopeful come-on-home date.

    Bluring some adult beverages in a bucket of ice west to Rio. Stay cool, dude.

    Jasper!…We all here are so impressed to read about your Maw’s ongoing learning how-to and creating Quilts…snort!…I don’t know if you know this story, but my friend was looking for a book on Quilting and she saw a book on Quilling….wheeze!…This paper thing looked a whole lot less expensive and “easier” to do…heh!…So she went home and ordered a starter kit…sniff!…So tell your Maw to keep on Quilting! Everyone here loves quilts the mostest!…chuffle!

    Rebecca: Remember to lock the door!

    Rose: My dad read Scent of the Missing a while back and really liked it a lot. Amazing book. He has recommended it to a lot of people. I think SiberH’s mom has read it too.

    Decided!…No walks at all…snort!…Too Hot yet. Beau won’t make it and someone is too tired to try it alone…heh!

  103. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:15 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Presents!…Dawson! Great idea. Whatever we would have spent on your wedding gift we should just send to Snowhook…heh!…I love it! Yes!

    11:24 pm on June 23rd, 2012

    Gah!…What a day! We are all ready to go to our beds…sniff!…Lots to do tomorrow, and it is supposed to be just as hot outside…wheeze!…We are going to be Big Winners though! The Rockies beat the almighty Texas Rangers today….WoooooHooooo!

    Ok – catching up –
    Dawson – did you get a beautiful dress for the wedding?

    Sammie – are you really coming too, are ya, huh? huh?

    Rio – just remember – you are one Cool Pug – no matter what the weather.

    Barb – would you like us to make a huge offer on your farm so that widow lady will increase her offer?

    Hey Jasper! Good to hear from you and good to know that Sissy is doing well.

    Hey Wookster – got everything under control in DC?

    Pie! Mama wants pie too. Except her summer shorts don’t fit – so no pie for her!

    Bella – get some sleep! Are you practicing your speech every free minute? When you get a minute, drop an SDD – Mama needs to ask you about your microphone preferences for the big event.

    And with that, we will say goodnight all.
