    Wonderful! I hope Woof receives the award.

    Good morning all.

    Morning all.
    Congrats on the Bluebonnet nomination! Paws crossed.
    We have a Bluebonnet Diner here – we took SnowBella there for breakfast when she came to visit, and we forced…, nominated her to be on an early morning radio broadcast.
    Poor SnowBella. She must have been exhausted by that trip.

    Good morning you 3 early birds and everyone else! Go WOOF! That would be quite a kudo. We will keep our ears, paws and tails crossed. We are still saying our pawrayers for Lily and Mr. Magoo.
    MP&LL’s Mom, did you get snow? Betcha that Buddy and Leno and their gal got snow. Hope all with that white shiitake are safe.
    Have a moderate and mild Monday.

    Doing my best Karnak the Magician imitation (for those of you ancient enough to know/remember who that is), I predict this is just the first of many award nominations for Woof. How about that.

    Strong prayers going out again for Lily’s speedy and complete recovery, and belated happy birthdays to the celebrants from yesterday.

    Lastly, I did receive a message from the other side of the bridge last night, from Wookie, telling me he is sitting in on all of Rio’s classes with him and doing everything he can for his best bud and loyal commander to help speed his return to this here blog.

    Great recognition Spence. We are happy for you.

    Wasn’t Karnak Johnny Carson? And I am definitely old enough.

    Lily is going to her doctor today and back to the concussion specialist tomorrow. Didn’t even know there was such a thing!
    Kay, my SIL from N.C. is a physical therapist. She has worked with people with TBIs and she said it will probably be months before Lily is back 100%. She said (and I didn’t tell Kelly this) they may end up homeschooling for part of this school year.

    Macy, does your mom have a new job? What is she doing, and does she like it?

    I am being moderated. I reread my post, and I used a word our moderator doesn’t like! Oops! Hope he lets it go through.

    Mollypop joined Wookie at Rio’s classes, just to make sure those two weren’t up to something.

    With those three in cahors — I mean cohoots — we can’t go wrong, can we?

    Congrats to OFA and WOOF!

    Good morning all.

    A Great Big Woof for WOOF!

    Very Encouraging News from 00Wookie and MollyPop. If anyones can get things rolling it is those two. This here Blog just is not the same without our Commander.

    Ongoing Prayers for Brave Lily and her family. May each day bring some small Improvement in her condition.

    Hoping for Good News from C.Hobbit about Mr. Magoo.

    DOG, insurance companies can be SO annoying!

    With all the extra help Rio is getting from his buds, he should pass his classes with flying colors, and hopefully he will be here on this blog, snorting, wheezing, chuffling, and wuffling.
    I still hope Beau will be a steady contributor on the blog…Dog knows we all could use some extra prayers.

    Still sending out strong WosenGrizz prayers to Lily. Hope she will be tip-top very soon.

    Healing prayers to Magoo. Hang in there!

    OOO-RAH* to Spence and “Woof”.
    OOO-RAH* to the Mets!

    * I have been watching a lot of NCIS reruns… :^)

  12. Linda
    12:35 pm on October 19th, 2015

    And I meant to say — thinking of Lily and Mr. Magoo, hoping both heal quickly.

    Wose, my favorite Met is Michael Cuddyer. He used to be a Twin and was great fun to watch. Then he went to the Rockies. I know that in both places he was very involved with doing good things in his community.

    12:41 pm on October 19th, 2015

    Wose, we have been too! Are we twins? Mom just came up for air…she has been doing the house inventory for the insurance. Hey, want an exercise in futility ?
    Pick one room in your house, try to list everything in it, find out how much it would be to replace each think and how old is it (oh, and if it is not too much trouble, give model numbers and the store where it came from). FUN! ????

  15. Herd of Hounds
    12:42 pm on October 19th, 2015

    GAH! THING, not think.

  16. Masquers

    Those insurance companies do not make things easy. No they do not.

  17. Wose-the small and meek
    1:14 pm on October 19th, 2015

    Linda: I don’t follow the Mets regularly, but the few interviews I have seen Cuddyer give, he seems like a very good guy. I think he is being platooned by the Mets at the moment.

    HOH: The insurance I am talking about is the medical kind. Grizz is trying to have a prescription refilled, and CVS is saying is does not have coverage. HEH! He just picked up a prescription on Saturday, for Pete’s sake.

  18. Wose-the small and meek
    1:15 pm on October 19th, 2015

    My dearest Masquers…together again at 1:14PM!

  19. Tupper's Mama
    1:48 pm on October 19th, 2015

    Don’t even get us started on insurance. We say it is nothing more than legalized gambling. We have paid for car insurance for well over 35 years, and never ever filed any kind of claim. But we still have to pay for it, by law in this state. sigh…

    We are still sending up prayers for Darling Lily, for Mr. Magoo, and for Rio to ace the course.

    Packing is now complete and official. We leave for the airport after dinner in order to be on an early flight tomorrow. Going home to New Mexico to see family and friends and eat green chili til the cows come home. The Storyteller has turned me loose to go on my own. He knows I will be running around from touchdown to return takeoff, so he sends me off to have a good time with “the girls”, my beloved friends, cousins and partners in crime.
    Flight info will be emailed to Masquers who we are sure is most competently manning (katting?) RioMas AirTravel Info.

    1:56 pm on October 19th, 2015

    Rose: Heh. ^..^

    T&G: Flying solo at RioMas until our partner returns.

    Thinking of Dawson slaving away at the polls today.

    Wose- very well done, my friend, especially the tribute to our friend and her family.

    Yay, Woof! May you win big.

    Tupper’s Mama – partners in crime? Sounds like some Snowhook four-leggeds are involved. Just sayin’…

  22. Barb, Maggie and Lucy

    T & G, You do have to carry liability insurance in most states but you don’t have to purchase coverage to repair your own car, unless you have a loan and then your lien holder requires it.

    I have a dumb question. My post from 10:53 still says it is awaiting moderation. I can see the whole post but am wondering if all of you can see it.

  23. BearSpiritDog
    4:48 pm on October 19th, 2015

    Barb,Magpie,Lucy: Your post of 10:53 is still Hidden From View.

    5:10 pm on October 19th, 2015

    Well, what the hell! Just because I called a doctor that word he doesn’t like. And how long does it take him to read it?

  25. Wose-the small and meek
    5:32 pm on October 19th, 2015

    B,M,&L: Only your post at 10:54 saying you are being moderated is showing. What bad word did you use? :^)

    Bluecat: Thank you. With Zoe’s kind permission, I was able to dedicate a page to our Heart Friend.

  26. Tupper's Mama
    5:40 pm on October 19th, 2015

    Oh Wose, thank you! You are the best.
    Off to the airport. RioMas is in charge.

  27. Wose-the small and meek
    5:58 pm on October 19th, 2015

    Not the best, just Wose.

    Wose, I watched all of NCIS this summer. I needed to exercise frequently and found that watching/listening to tv helped.

  29. Wose-the small and meek
    6:38 pm on October 19th, 2015

    Martha: I became an NCIS fan last year. I am busy watching the reruns on the USA Network. Exercising while watching/listening to it sounds like a plan….OOO-RAH!

    6:50 pm on October 19th, 2015

    Hey all. BML, can you just change that word and re-post? We are hoping it is a Lily update.
    Dawson must be bushed by now.
    For the Prof:

    So many wonderful family members with wicked humor on this here blog. The family is almost whole. Waiting for the missing to return.

  33. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    7:03 pm on October 19th, 2015

    Well, let’s see. I said I thought Johnny Carson was Karnack.

    Then I gave a Lily update. She was going to the doctor and I mentioned that she was seeing another doctor tomorrow. I said he was a special guy that only looks at concussions. That was really a bad word wasn’t it? I don’t get it. What is the reason again that we can’t say that?

    My SIL in N.C.,who is a physical therapist, said that if Lily is having trouble walking it might take months before she is 100%. She said they might have to consider homeschooling for at least part of this school year. I have not told Kelly any of this.

    That was pretty much it. Except that I told Spencer that I was happy for the honor he received for Woof.

    Barb, the blog software is looking for the words used by the spammers – footwear, special docs, drug stores, and gamboling – and kicks out the post until a human admin takes a look. Maybe our admin went out gamboling.

  35. Masquers
    7:22 pm on October 19th, 2015

    BML: We haven’t a clue why that particular word ticks off the moderator. Some of the others at least are suspicious.
    Looks like dear Lily has a long way to go before her life returns to normal. But it will be worth the wait when it does.
    Are they still investigating the cause?

    Masquers, I don’t think so. It was probably just a case of the horse getting spooked and she went flying off. We will probably never know for sure. When you think of the things that could have happened I feel blessed that she will be ok eventually.

  39. Tupper and Gilly
    7:43 pm on October 19th, 2015

    Barb – our Mama was taught by her horsewoman mentor that a horse is just an accident waiting to happen.

    Hope the special doc has some encouraging words.

    Just to make Mama feel guilty about abandoning us, I Tupper, came back from out postprandial outing with a pronounced limp in a hind leg. Mama checked my leg, paw and hip, and I didn’t say a word or whimper a bit. But I won’t walk on that leg. So, now she is in a hotel far, far away, feeling awful about leaving us.

    There! That’ll teach her.

    Bluekat: We like being partners in crime with an evil pug and the Wookster. We also plan on involving Beau in future capers. He is a good pug to have around should things go south.

  41. Martha
    7:50 pm on October 19th, 2015

    If Lily is to be homeschooled, please meet with the school’s Special Education department. They are obligated to school Lily and would probably set up a tutor to come and teach her at home. The tutor is responsible for keeping in touch with her teachers. I think that sometimes parents do not know that this is available and withdraw their child from the school.

  42. Wose-the small and meek
    8:28 pm on October 19th, 2015

    Just saw this on the Westchester news. It concerns the origin of dogs.

    Howlers: The Prof had a good laugh at your post.

  43. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    8:45 pm on October 19th, 2015

    Thank you Martha, I will keep that in mind and will mention it if it comes to that. Not sure Kelly is ready to talk about that sort of possibility yet.
    At this point, they don’t even want Lily to attempt to read, let alone do school work.
    I agree about horses being an accident waiting to happen. Yesterday when I was helping Kelly let the 5 horses out of their stalls, they would have run me over if I had been in their way.

    Sneeze!…AHEM!…Before Rio was forced into da car and driven to his evening Angry As Hell Management class, he made me promise ta tell all youse good guys who are helping him (wink! wink!) get good grades a very big THANK YOU….snuffle!cough!…And he also wanted me to thank all of dose guys who are wishing him well in deez classes. Managing his Angry As Hell stuff does not come naturally to him like a lot of other stuff does. I used to have issues with this very thing myselves. So I knows what he is going thru…sneeze!spit!

    Managing his mad as hell anger may not come naturally to our pal, Rio. He brings other things to the table…like gas. Heh.

  50. Thieves! The pure! The moral! The loveable! The miscreants!
    9:53 pm on October 19th, 2015

    Beau: You must mean mad as hell anger, because your problems with gas are alive and well. Our Lady says you cleared Auction Central last time you stopped by the bless the new-to-us Bid-o-matic.

    10:08 pm on October 19th, 2015

    No, I was not making fun Beau, I was totally serious. And Thieves, you are a close second on the pure-o-meter.

    And now we say good night.

    BML: Luna says we were brought up right whatever that means.

    11:51 pm on October 19th, 2015

    Beau, I am sure those Thieves are just jealous because you got the vat o’ beer and the slim jims. They will be a little better once they steal find some of their own slim jims.

    Give Rio a pat on the back from Alice M. Johnson and AbbietheKitty. Alice understands anger management. Abbie doesn’t need to but she wishes Rio the best anyway.

    This morning I checked and my original comment is still awaiting. That guy is falling down on the job!

    I also asked Macy if her mom had a new job and if she liked it.
