    Good morning, Spencer. Welcome back (almost) home.
    We hope Melanie is going to Albany. Can’t wait for her pictures.

    Wonder what Bouchercon refers to. Have a good panel discussion.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning, everyone! According to Wikipedia, Bouchercon is an annual mystery writers convention with an award. it shares between Albany and (oops, we forgot). This year Sue Grafton is getting the award. Very soggy here, but we need it. How is the rose/Grizz/Teddy & family get together?
    Have a last Saturday of summer Saturday. (And happy b-day Lucy Lou the Labradoo)

    Greetings!

    Lovely prayer last night for those under the quilt. Amen!

    HOH: the Wose/Grizz/ Teddy and family meeting is next Saturday!

    Oops, we are lousy with dates, that’s why we have mom and a calendar :)

    BTW: I love the picture of Lucky Cat in FOC.
    He looks very much like Bob the Street Cat. I don’t know if any of youse have heard of the book, A Street Cat Named Bob. I recently read it and loved it. It is a very inspirational book. BooBear, I think your mom would love it!

    HOH: Today Grizz and I going to see my favorite film, The Wizard of Oz in IMAX 3D. I am soo excited!

    Good morning all. Cloudy here at the beach. Oh well, we have had a great run of lovely weather.

    All shout out a Happy Birthday to YSAS. He is spending the day in a shark cage. Under water. By choice. Mad, I tell ya, the boy is mad.

    And Happy Birthday to Lucy Lou. Tupper and Gilly send head bumps. (Ha! Gotcha, you evil otter corked!)

  10. Melanie
    10:13 am on September 21st, 2013

    Thank you all for having my back. This virtual place is totally real. Huh? But, it is.

    BooBear and Golinka, thank you for your special words. Sharon, please thank the Herd for posting the prayer.

    I would like to put the ocean video on a loop and just watch it for days. (By the way, yesterday was the Beach Two Legged’s Anniversary.) Congratulations!

    As for me, as OTAS put it, One Step At A Time. Next step is Tuesday to meet the doc that might do the procedure. He works at the same hospital where the techs didn’t use gloves. My doc, who is wonderful, likes this doc. We shall see.

    One of our puppy people works at a different place and she is checking out that place on Monday.

  11. Melanie
    10:21 am on September 21st, 2013

    Yes, I received a call from YSAS and LLL, and the shark diving went great. They still have all limbs and digits. Whew. I’ll post a picture of them later.

    We are not going to Albany. You had to buy tickets, $175 a piece! I asked about just day passes. They had them . . At $80 a piece and the only thing we would have been able to do is stand in line to get a paw print. YIKES!

    This thing is a big deal. Maybe next year . . ?

    Getting tired . . Will be back later. Thanks again for your support.

    Good Morning, Dear Melanie and All!!!
    Happy Birthday to YSAS!!! (Shark Cage…Shudder)
    Happy Belated Anniversary to Golinka & the Storyteller!!!

    Wose: Like the Hounds, we thought today was The Day too. BooHoo.
    Well…guess the Wizard in 3D and Imax is a pretty good close 2nd.

    Now going to play our very favorite Ocean Video.

  13. BearSpiritDog
    10:33 am on September 21st, 2013

    And….Happy B-Day to Lucy Lou the Labadoo!!!

    10:35 am on September 21st, 2013

    Rose: (from mom) I’ll get you my pretty, and your little dog, too. P.S. If you ever talk to her, ask her to do her munchkin voice.
    T&G’s folks: Happy Anniversary ( a bit tardy).
    HOH B: TY for posting the Wikipedia article. We don’t know how yet.
    Melanie: Good to hear you. Climb back under the quilt for a bit.

  15. Herd of Hounds

    Spence gets our award for best mystery writer of the year.

    T&G To answer your question about Natasha and the Porsche:
    Natasha has been very busy. The NSA offered her big bucks to work for them but since she is a loyal patriot to the Motherland, she turned down the job offer. Good girl.
    She deserves a new sports car and Putin should buy her one.

    Happy Birthday to YSAS!!

    Happy one day late anniversary best wishes to the Royals.

    Happy Birthday to Lucy Lou!

  18. Wose
    11:05 am on September 21st, 2013

    Birthday shouts!
    YSAS! Really a shark? Really?
    LucyLou!

    A most happy anniversary to the Royal Couple! May you celebrate many, many more!

  19. O'Howlers
    11:22 am on September 21st, 2013

    Us too: Happy Birthday to LucyLou and to YSAS! And we just know our favorite LOBSTA twosome are having a Great Anniversary Beach Week! Woo Hooo!!!

    Melanie, We had no idea that event required tickets, let alone EXPENSIVE tickets. Thank Dog Mom did not succeed in convincing Pop to go all the way up there!

    Today, Pop is going to a Victory Brewing Company Brew/Bluegrass Festival. One of the groups they got to see in that private barn concert, Mr. Fuzzy and the Barbarian, are even playing there. It sounds like lots of fun, but our mom is staying here with us us us! Well, OK, mostly with the Deemster.
    She will be spending the rest of the day, mostly parked on the patio or porch reading TSATF.

    11:26 am on September 21st, 2013

    OH: You mom is brilliant. That is what our mom planned. Are they twins?

  21. B. Stover
    12:14 pm on September 21st, 2013

    I think that having to pay $175 to attend a book signing is ridiculous.

  22. Herd of Hounds
    12:18 pm on September 21st, 2013

    HRH B: Mom says she is an old-fashioned cheapskate and thinks $175 for most things is ridikulus.

  23. Masquers
    12:27 pm on September 21st, 2013

    HRH B & HOH: Ridiculous, yes…and you don’t have to be a cheapskate to think so…Melanie, we are sorry you do not get to go.
    Off now to the library with a stop at the market. Hopefully before the raindrops fall.

    SiberH picked us up this morning. All we can say is that Porsche corners like it is on rails. Weeee!

    Melanie: yes, one day at a time. One is less than two so we know we can handle it. Sharks! Like our Lady said earlier this week even perfect characters have flaws. YSAS’ flaw is poor shark related decision making. We love him anyway.

    Happy birthdays and anniversaries abound!

    Rio and Friend must be having a ball at their Saturday Brunch!
    I may blurr over to sample the fare with Rio & Beau under the table. Heh.

  26. O'Howlers
    12:45 pm on September 21st, 2013

    We are only 40% thru TSATF and already it is our favorite C&B. But do youse believe Rio is a character in this? In all but name that is.

    Melanie, Dima wants you to think like a dog. We love you 4-leggeds, but you all seem to think too much. Simply enjoy the moment. That’s how we roll.

  27. Herd of Hounds
    12:55 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Ah, can autumn be far off? The local rodents are getting ready for the annual big sleep (and thieving from the birds).

  28. Herd of Hounds
    1:02 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Getting braver.

    HINT: Look on feeder. Ok, no more rodent fotos, we promise.

    I just received a lovely postcard from the beach with a beautiful boiled lobster on the front. Lobster pie…? The problem would be that while making the pie I’d eat the lobster.

  30. O'Howlers
    1:39 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Ditto, Bee.

  31. BearSpiritDog

    Lobsta!!! WoooHooo!!!

  32. Charlie
    2:15 pm on September 21st, 2013

    B: Maybe we could drag your easy chair to the beach and eat lobstah before it every makes it to the pie.

  33. B. Stover
    2:30 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Excellent idea Charlie!

  34. Melanie
    2:31 pm on September 21st, 2013

    A Non Lobsta Pie . .

    Trying my best to think like a member of The Nation Within.

    Went out in the garden to cut back the still flowering parts of the tomato plants. I found a beginning to ripen tomato! Yippee. Then I found three peppers that had been hiding from me. Wish I knew what peppers I had gotten.

    The race is on; freeze or ripen.

    2:32 pm on September 21st, 2013
  36. Charlie
    2:34 pm on September 21st, 2013

    B: When we’ve had our feel of never-made-it-to-the-pie lobster, we can curl up in your easy chair and read TSATF.

    Melanie: Thinking like a dog is easy. I do it all the time. Most of the time, I don’t even know I’m doing it. Woo!—Right there, I just did it again.

    A bit more on Boucheron. Boucheron is one of three major mystery writer awards events in the U.S., with the prizes there named the Anthony. It moves around the country to different venues from year to year. The other two are the Mystery Writers of America event, always held in NYC, and they award the Edgars (which OFA won a few years back for young adult fiction). The third one is sponsored by a group called Malice Domestic, and is always in the Washington, DC area. (I’ve never been but maybe next year.) The award they give is the Agatha. There may be some subtle differences between the Anthonys and Edgars, but I think the eligibility criteria is largely the same, where the Agatha are very much geared toward cozies.

    2:48 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Charlie. Thinking like a dog is actually pretty cool, although I am still in my learning phase. Thankfully, Pancho and Lefty have been very helpful though in my tutelage. For inspiration I do try to follow the quote from Rene Descartes’ dog, “I woof, therefore I am.”

  39. Pancho & Lefty
    2:52 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Ruff Rider: You are such a great student. The way you embraced the devil dog lesson makes us proud, so very proud. You are a natural. Next week’s lesson will be what we call Procurement 101. This lesson goes paw in paw with Not Getting Caught, A Student’s Guide. As cute as you are, mastering being forgiven will be a breeze.

    Teddy! Rene Descartes…you philosophical dog you!

  41. Herd of Hounds
    3:27 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Hey Teddy, Pancho and Lefty, if cute doesn’t work, I roll my big,brown eyes, look confused, put my head against the 2 legger and SLIME them. They forget everything. Works every time :) -Darah

  42. Pancho & Lefty
    3:29 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Darah: Cute comes in many varieties. For us cute means cocking our head to the side and then to the other. Then, we put a paw on our Lady’s shoulder and look at her as if to say, “It’s okay. Trust us, it could have been much worse.”

  43. O'Howlers
    3:35 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Dad, What are cozies?

  44. Tupper's Mama
    4:15 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Oh my, Teddy is growing up so fast.

    Well, we came, we saw, we ate lobstahs. And now it’s time to think about heading back home. We were going to wait til Monday, but it is supposed to be very rainy and cold tomorrow, so that makes home sound better. This cottage is very sweet and we love being here, but there is NO insulation and in rainy, cold weather it gets kind of chilly and damp.

    It has been a great vacation and we are ready to go home and tackle the world again. And my vision came true. Before his surgery, I “saw” him, walking down the beach, straight and pain free. And now I really did see that with my own eyes. Twirling. Twirling. And humbled by the great power of support and prayers.

    Thank you Plunderers.

    I’ve had some good news on the health front this week. Since the crime scene incident, the vet wants to do lab work every week. Each week, I get weighed and my blood gets drawn. My weight has been up and down and the results of my blood test have been heading in the wrong direction. The day of the crime scene my red blood cell count was at the very low end of acceptable and it’s dropped by 8% since then. But, this week, it increased by 2%. My Lady says it isn’t much, but we’ll take it heading in the right direction. The vet put me on another new medication this week. My energy is still low, but I’ve parlayed it into getting more attention and tummies.

  46. Herd of Hounds
    4:19 pm on September 21st, 2013

    T&G’s Mama: Fantastic :)

  47. Tenzing
    4:23 pm on September 21st, 2013

    T&G: My Lady says the Storyteller is a very special person. She says the same of you. We here are happy that your vision was realized.

    I wonder if Rio and Beau have eaten themselves silly at the floor buffet?

  48. Herd of Hounds
    4:31 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Tenzing: IF, your are asking IF of our 2 favorite puglets? Honey, it is a given. -Pookey

  49. Pancho & Lefty
    4:44 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Is this proof that Beau at himself silly? Youse tell us.

  50. Pancho & Lefty
    4:45 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Ate! not at himself silly.

    We snapped this photo right before SiberH hit the gas pedel in the, er, borrowed Porshe.

  51. Herd of Hounds
    4:50 pm on September 21st, 2013

    P&L: Well, that looks just like our little puglets, bless their hearts. -Darah

    B&M: Barb hasn’t put up a mouthwatering dinner menu is some days. Mom isn’t a great cook so ya’ll need to keep giving her ideas.

  52. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:51 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Food!..Oh my dawg! My friend was up at 6:30am and made food till 11:00am and then all kinds of people came…snort!…Beau was the official greeter. I was the official yeeep!yeeeper! and Beggar…heh!heh!…We both got a good share off of lots of plates…chuffle!burp!…Everyone thought we were handsome and well behaved. My friend just rolled her eyes and coughed…heh!…I’m exhausted…wheeze!

  53. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:54 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Resting!…We three are downstairs resting and watching “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”…snort!snort!…Someone remarked that I was ‘The Bad’, Beau was ‘The Ugly’ and of course she is ‘The Good’…grunt!

  54. Pancho & Lefty
    5:17 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Rio: Of course your Friend is the Good. We can’t all be evil masterminds.

  55. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:36 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Pancho!….So true…snort!

  56. Herd of Hounds
    5:39 pm on September 21st, 2013

    B&M: Mom suggested this for dinner. Will it pass muster? 1) Caesar salad with breadsticks, 2) Parmesan crusted chicken and 3) Angel hair pasta with primavera sauce. It it’s a bomb…too late, but mom will fix it for next time.

  57. Pancho & Lefty
    5:43 pm on September 21st, 2013

    HOH: In a pinch you can always have Slim Jims with a dash of kibble. Delish. It beats hoose mead stew. Speaking of which, our Lady was in a new village this week. As they pulled up to the building there was a moose head on the front steps. It was a fresh kill. Her stomach lurched as she wondered what was going to be served for lunch.

  58. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:47 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Moose!…It’s what’s for lunch!….gah!

  59. SnowBella
    5:52 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Rio: Luckily, something different was on the menu, but when I saw the bodiless moose head starting at me when I first arrived, I was nervous.

  60. Herd of Hounds
    5:58 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Poor Snow Bella, let us tell you, mom would have tossed her cookies everywhere, but why? Doesn’t everyone like cookies?

  61. Tupper's Mama
    6:10 pm on September 21st, 2013

    We will pass on the goose mead stew too, thanks very much.
    Guess what we are having for dinner on our last night at the beach?

    6:34 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Riddle me this—Why do we never hear, “Who’s a good boy?”

  65. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:44 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Pancho!…That’s a new one on me too..sniff!…No one around here ever says it…grunt!

  66. Melanie
    6:46 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Those pictures of Riö and Beau were perfect. Too much good food (The Pack is arguing that there is no such thing.).

    I was able to get up and get a bit done today. Snigglefritzing contrast dye.

    I was going to say something else, but hey, gone for now!

    Here are the two nuts . .

  67. Pancho & Lefty
    6:47 pm on September 21st, 2013

    At least we’re in good, on in this case, evil company.

  68. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:47 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Lobster!…I think Tupper’s Maw has finally eaten too many lobsters. She is talking non-sense. Unless it is an anagram…sniff!

  69. Riö - The Evil Pug

    7:07 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Rio: Could it have been “Wild Thing”. Very strange..oh, wait, maybe Kevin Bacon…bacon. bacon…we love bacon!

  71. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:17 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Hounds!…I do not understand what you are saying to me….grunt!

    Howlers!….WHAT? What is that you say about me being a character in the new book?? …wheeze!…WHAT? Are you pulling my tail?…sniff!…We here have not started the book yet, for some strange reason…grumble!

  72. Siber-H
    7:30 pm on September 21st, 2013

    T&G Thank you for the lobster postcard! That card is the closest I will ever get to a lobster.

    7:31 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Has anyone had any experience with kidney stones? Yip, yikes, ow, oof

  74. Herd of Hounds
    7:35 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Macy’s Mom: Kidney stones…Ow, wow, yelp, they hurt! It doesn’t matter what you do,, they hurt!… :( Sorry.

  75. O'Howlers
    7:38 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Pop has had kidney stone episodes quite a few times…way too many. He had that kidney iperated on years ago and has not had an episode since. He says they hurt worse than we can imagine. Most folks say it hurts more than giving birth. Macy, who has the kidney stone at your place? We feel much sympathy for anyone going through that.

  76. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:45 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Stones!…My friend said she saw a consultant at a busy-place years ago go down like a rock (or stone) in his office one time…sniff!…They hauled him to the hospital and found out he had those stones….gasp!

  79. Macy's mom
    8:01 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Thanks for all the “encouraging” words ; p. it is I who is dealing with intermittent jabs in the lower right side. Angie keeps checking to make sure I am drinking my water. I think the girl is trying to drown me.

  80. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:11 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Hounds!…That I understand…grunt!

    Rose: how was TWOZ in IMAX 3D?

  82. Herd of Hounds
    8:15 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Rio: Our mom has an adopted son…a philipino-american. He says mom is the most loving, caring woman in the world…in a caustic, ascerbic sort of way! So, now you can understand mom. We do :)

  83. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:19 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Personality!….That may be her personality, but her cryptic posts on this here blog is beyond me most days…grunt!

  84. O'Howlers
    8:29 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Macy, give your mom lots of love. We hope the stones pass, along with the pain. Does she have any pain pills?

  85. Melanie
    8:32 pm on September 21st, 2013

    I remembered a few things!

    The Mooses arrived! Thanks Pancho and Lefty. You got the package through the Maundering Goats.

    Dear Smoochers. I appreciate you guys coming by and please stop in any time. But, if you could leave behind the squirrel costumes next time? It was total chaos here last night.

    Sorry about the kidney stones, Macy. I do appreciate the dainty licks, but the screams of pain were a bit unnerving.

    Arch!…Stanton!…sniff!…Remember him? From the best Western Movie ever filmed?…heh!heh!…We here love this movie, but it is too darn long…grunt!…Gotta go for a walk before it gets dark and mosquitoey…grump!

  87. Melanie
    8:36 pm on September 21st, 2013

    One more thing . .

    HOH’s Mom. OTAS has always told me he was going to find me a nice home. In a deadpan, can’t tell if he’s joking voice.

    Quite a few times I have channeled Bill Cosby. “You know, I brought you in this world, and I can take you out.”

    Heh, heh, heh . .

  88. O'Howlers
    8:39 pm on September 21st, 2013

    Mooses! We almost forgot: Pop received his Mooseallaneous(?) package! He especially loves the hat…it is the warmest hat he’s ever had. He will be modeling it in Alaska in 2014. Mom loves the husky magnet the most.

    I had one kidney stone many, many years ago and it was exactly like being in labor. Only one episode and never repeated.

    Sadie has had intermittent devil-dog tendencies the last week. I don’t know if it is the colder weather or if certain dogs have been blurring in to entice her. The latest episode was after I discovered she had escaped from the *completely* enclosed fenced yard in Anchorage and was wandering the neighborhood. Fortunately, she came when called but then went tearing around the house, jumping up & off and up & off and up & off the master bed. Made me dizzy to watch her. Pillows and dog sheet cover went flying.

    I don’t know for sure if I HAVE stones, just unnerving pain jolts that have decreased a bit since Angie has been watering me. This has been going on for several days but today has been over the top. I have a appt on Monday with a new doc since my old one would not discuss the problem because it wasn’t what I came in for. It seems that chest pains trump kidney any day. Heart is fine. N- e-x-t

    Masquers, I thought UTD was supposed to end this year WTH? I was ready for the end but…I am anxious to hear your thoughts about some of the elements introduced. Maybe if I had read the book… I just don’t see how they can get another season out of it.

    The beach party’s over
    It’s time to call it a day
    The beach party’s over
    The Lobsters are all yelling “hooray”

    Well, we are all packed except for the last minute stuff. We went up to the beach to say goodnight to the waves and the moon. It was sad, but still awesome in its magnificence. But dreams came true here, so it was a great vacation. Really glad you all came along with us.

    Goodnight.

    Macy & Riö: I have not read the novel so can’t compare, but have heard tell the TV series is quite different from the book.
    An interview with Dean Norris had him revealing what a BB type character he will be playing in this series.
    Where will it go from here? There are some things that still need to be explained…but a whole seasons worth? Maybe SK will make it worth our while.

    Well, we have the new computer up and running, we think. Quite fast compared to the old one, but it will take some time to learn Windows 8.

    Hope all are doing well. Missed y’all. Haven’t had a chance to go back and see what we have missed. See you all tomorrow.

    Nighty noodles!

    Today, I went with my Lady and the Giant into town to get straw for us dogs. We stopped at the pet store to find my new favorite dog pillow on clearance. Someone who shall remain nameless—not me—had several accidents on my old favorite pillow. My Lady tried washing it to no avail. We didn’t find my new favorite pillow today. Luckily, I have three back up pillows I can use until my Lady makes my new favorite pillow. All is not lost. While we were at the pet store, I saw it—a squeaky toy in the shape of a pig. I couldn’t resist so helped myself. I grabbed it right off the display and I started to squeak the squeaker then and there. Until I realized my Giant and Lady were heading to the register to buy it, I stayed out of arms reach so they couldn’t take my pig away from me.

    The Giant and me walking to the dog truck. The Giant is carrying the squeaky pig for me. I had to keep an eye on his paws to make sure he didn’t claim it as his own. I am happy to say the Giant can be trusted.

    Sadie loves squeaky toys and is an expert de-squeaker which then renders the toys unusable. It is rare that I find something that can last.

    I was raking leaves in the front yard ahead of the expected snow and suddenly I saw Sadie. How did she get out of the enclosed fenced backyard? I was about to change her name to Houdini when I discovered that the house inspector had left a gate unlatched.

    The house inspection went fine–a repair list of mostly little things, nothing serious. Yay!

    That headset is while beautiful because within the visualize. That came quickly. I would recommend getting a towel through each and every coating as you hit things out w / your steam iron. It does not vapor away and merely a steamer. All iron ended up being required. It is very delicate, so if you don’t trust your self with all the towel furthermore vapor iron, next accept they up to a pro. Pretty sound.
