    Good morning! Poor MPM is probably wide awake, trying hard to sleep. That time zone difference takes a while to acclimate (to).

    Good morning all–
    I’m hoping there will be more updates of Rick’s (improving) progress as the day unfolds.
    Love the M. Vick as vick-tim photo and will be sharing it widely.
    Everyone have a splendid Saturday, catch up on sleep as needed (and don’t overdo on anything), and travel safely.
    Miss Pretty has more allergies, but is being VERY good about her eyedrops.
    Does anyone here recall a movie called Babette’s Feast? Caught it on TV yesterday and still loved (albeit with mixed feelings from the veg. end).

    Sorry to hear that Rick is back in the hospital, but maybe he will be more comfortable there for a few days. Hopefully ML can catch up on her sleep.

    Jill Rappaport just did a special segment on Today Show on the Black Dog Syndrome. She is a animal advocate and special correspondent for NBC. Emily Lou Harris also had a spot on the segment. She is a CW singer and has a animal rescue place in Tenn.(?) for dogs, especially black ones.

    Good morning, everyone! Mom gets misty with Bruno and Rick updates. Glad MPM did the flight OK and that the Hobbit Hotel concierge got her. Enjoy Alaska!
    Have a special Saturday, all.

    Good Morning y’all.

    I had to laugh at MPM saying it was past her bedtime. Heck, it was nearly morning EDT. A good reason to stay a week? It takes a couple of days just to figure out where the heck you are, time-wise.

    Thanks to all smoochers. I haven’t talked to the patient yet, but I am sure they were top notch. I think we are going to have issues with this room, so hopefully the stay will be extra short. The shower is a bathtub combo deal and I do not think he can raise his legs high enough to get in. BIG minus for me is no comfy chair. Can’t really complain though. Our girl Angie pulled some strings to get this oncology room. There was a non-cancer patient in it, so she was moved to the medical wing. At that point the only other room was in maternity. I am going to take my time getting there today and let the professionals deal with the pillow obsession.

    Love Spence’s Harry S Truman quote on his facebookie post :)
    Macy’s Mom, LOL (no little old ladies or laughing out loud) to you. Take a couple of hours off, you deserve it.
    MPM and Hobbit, have a ball. Is Gwennie’s in your future?
    BSD, we think you live on eastern time even though you are western.

    MPM, Glad to hear you safely landed and got something substantial to eat upon arrival.

    Barb had lunch with her friend Kim yesterday while in Freeport for her tax appointment. Kim’s elderly dad lives with them and has dementia. While traveling with him last week he thought they were in an airplane and kept worrying that the gas stations wouldn’t have enough jet fuel. Then he fell in the restaurant parking lot and had cuts and bruises all over his face and hands. At night we woke her up every few minutes, needing a glass of waa-waa or having to go potty, or to tell her that a stranger had just come in and stolen their refrigerator or turned the heat off. Made her realize taking care of Sammy for a week ain’t so bad!

    Barb, except for the wa-wa and potty, you got it hands down :)

    So far we have 2 quotes on wallpapering labor – $500 and $480. Getting one more this morning, but it is looking like Barb will be doing it herself. It is one a 1 day job for a professional hanger – 10 hours would be $50 per hour, 8 hours would be $62.50 per hour. Who knew they made that much money!

    Good morning. It’s 6 o’clock here in the hobbit hotel. I’m waiting to hear some stirring from other hotel customers. There is one other customer here along with me besides our wonderful manager.

    Many thanks to the RioMas airlines for their great tracking of my flight. Then came the hobbit hotel airport pick up and food delivery system. The delicious flank steak was quite a welcome surprise.

    Mom just said she is glad she likes the wallpaper that came with the house!

    MPM, glad you are in one piece and had a delish dinner upon your arrival. You will find the Hobbit Hotel exquisite. The lady of the manor is a joy and a treat.

  16. Barb & Maggie
    9:11 am on March 29th, 2014

    MPM, You are getting first class service from the hotel manager. Flank steak sound yummy! Definitely better than that soggy lump of peanut butter crackers.

  17. Barb & Maggie
    9:15 am on March 29th, 2014

    HOH, Barb has probably hung well over a thousand rolls of wallpaper in her life (who knew!), but she really didn’t want to be climbing on a ladder or worse yet, getting down on the floor, reaching behind the toilet. Looks like she will have to suck it up and do it, since she isn’t made of money.

  18. Herd of Hounds
    9:28 am on March 29th, 2014

    B&M, mom knows that feeling. Right now she is just re-gluing the bathrooms, hoping/praying she stays ahead of old paper peel. GAH! Gotta love interior design :)

  19. Macy's mom
    9:33 am on March 29th, 2014

    Everytime I sit on the “furniture” in a certain room, I notice the 80′s border peeling. I really want to remove it, but by the time I am finished with the little room I forget all about it.

  20. Wose-the small and meek
    9:46 am on March 29th, 2014

    MPM, Hurray, you made it to the Great White North on the best airline, RioMas, to the best hotel in Alaska, Hobbit Hotel, with the greatest hostess, our own Hobitt.

    Please give extra tummies to Mama Luna and Belle Starr from me. And make sure that our Pixie is resting, and eating enough.

    Have fun!

    ML and Rick, you are never far from my thoughts.

  22. Barb & Maggie
    9:49 am on March 29th, 2014

    ML, When Barb bought this house the 2 bathrooms had paper and border that is from 1999, when the house was built. It is supposed to look like faux painting with a pink, blue and white brush-stroke paint effect. Not attractive. The rest of the house is redone, except for the dreaded bathrooms. Same thing happens here, as at your house, when the “furniture” is sat upon.

    Hey, BStover, What do you call a dinosaur with an extensive vocabulary?

  24. Herd of Hounds
    10:44 am on March 29th, 2014

    A thesaurus. (heh, heh, heh)

  25. Tupper and Gilly
    10:57 am on March 29th, 2014

    HOH – can you think of another way to say that?

  26. Herd of Hounds
    11:03 am on March 29th, 2014

    Let me check my thesaurus! ….Again…

  27. Tupper and Gilly
    11:12 am on March 29th, 2014

    You use a book??? What a dinosaur

  28. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:15 am on March 29th, 2014

    Sirens!…There are Sirens going off in this here town but no one knows why….grunt!…I’m heading for beneath the bed just in case….yeeep!

  29. Tupper and Gilly
    11:24 am on March 29th, 2014

    Rio – yeep indeed! What kind of sirens? Tornado? Fire?

  30. Barb & Maggie

    There is just waaay too much creative talent on this here blog.

  31. SnowBella
    11:33 am on March 29th, 2014

    It is official. AJ is the best husband. Ever. He let me sleep in today and then brought me breakfast if orange juice, eggs and bacon in bed.

  32. O'Howlers
    11:35 am on March 29th, 2014

    So, Bella, did you decide to keep him?

  33. Barb & Maggie
    11:44 am on March 29th, 2014

    Better keep him, guys like that are very hard to find!

    Finally got a papering quote we can live with – $250, for the job as opposed to $500. This guy was recommended by the local paint and wallpaper store, so he probably decent. Now we have to get busy and strip the ugly stuff off and patch the walls.

  34. Herd of Hounds
    11:47 am on March 29th, 2014

    Send him to us. Mom can use a guy like that!

  35. SnowBella
    11:55 am on March 29th, 2014

    He has his flaws like eating an entire gallon of ice cream before I have a chance to have a taste and he refuses to sing, but I am not giving the Giant up for anything. Nope, not a chance.

  36. Herd of Hounds
    12:06 pm on March 29th, 2014

    Please?????

  37. SnowBella

    Not for all the Slim Jims in the world.

  38. Tupper's Mama

    I’ll see your Giant and raise you one Storyteller.

  39. Tupper's Mama
    12:52 pm on March 29th, 2014

    Rio? Are the sirens still going?

  40. SnowBella
    1:05 pm on March 29th, 2014

    T&G: Giggle. I think the Giant and the Storyteller would get along well.

    The Thieves are convinced they need to go on a search and rescue mission for Rio. Pancho just filled up a barrel on his collar with beer a la St. Bernard style.

  41. Masquers
    2:27 pm on March 29th, 2014

    Yes, Riö, we need a report on the source of the sirens.

  42. Herd of Hounds
    2:55 pm on March 29th, 2014

    Chortle, chortle, chortle. Youse guyses are funny.

  43. O'Howlers

    Bella and Tupper’s Mama: we will see you both the Giant and the Storyteller, and raise you one Pop.

    Hooray for Bruno! He’s recovering very well.

    MPM: Up at 6 in the morning after flying most of the night?! A double Dawson due to sleep deprivation.
    Have fun at the kennel. Those puppies will keep you awake, for sure.

    Snowbella: Bacon and eggs in bed. That guy is a keeper!

    Macy’s Mom: If you ask for one, maybe they can find a comfy chair to put in the room for you.

  45. Tupper's Mama
    3:24 pm on March 29th, 2014

    Howlers – sorry, but I am holding one Storyteller, one Gramp, two Corgis, two Wrotten Kats and a Great Pyrenees. In other words – a full house.

    tee hee

  46. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:33 pm on March 29th, 2014

    Sirens!….The consensus is they were probably Testing the sirens – getting ready for the wicked Spring Weather and all that baloney…snort!

    Outside!….We’ve all been outside watching my friend repair birdhouses. there was some major damage due to high winds and being blown off he patio…grunt!…Everything is glued together again and drying. Now its getting all windy and chilly out again…sniff!….Time to come in and find a good spot to rest.

    “Thesaurus” is from the Latin word meaning “treasury.” For some reason I really like that.

    ABCFamily seems to be having another Harry Potter marathon.

  48. Masquers

    Anxious to hear how MPM’s and Hobbit’s day has gone.

    Just watched the Captain Phillips movie. Was a nail biter. Of course, anything with Tom Hanks is good.

  54. c.hobbit
    7:30 pm on March 29th, 2014

    Still having a great day. Will post more later. Snowhook was great–meeting the dogs and having a sled dog mushing experience. I can report that the Plunderer litter looks great and seems to have recovered. Melanie is such a sweet puppy; Amalia seemed rather shy but of all the puppies she was affected more from being ill and having to have 6 pills twice a day. Yeep. I fell in love with Belle Starr and Luna is the alpba mama as Rebecca has said.

    CHobbit said Luna is the alpha. This explains a lot. We had no idea why we obey her every command. All this time we thought it was because we got all the manners in our litter.

    MPM rode in the sled. Our lady wanted to get a photo, but her phone ran out of juice. Gah!

  61. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:32 pm on March 29th, 2014

    Phewey!…No photo…grump!…What the hell.

  62. Riö – The Evil Pug

    9:19 pm on March 29th, 2014

    HA!…MollysMaw!…snort!…What happened?? Did AJ take you over The Steps?…sniff!sniff!

  67. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:21 pm on March 29th, 2014

    Easter!….We are watching a very old movie called “Easter Parade”. Amazingly we have never seen this before in our lives…heh!…Right off the bat in the beginning there is the star of the show. A Puppy Pug. YES!….snort!,,,,I wonder what ever happened to that guy….wheeze!

  68. Barb & Maggie
    9:36 pm on March 29th, 2014

    Too bad we don’t have a video of the sled ride with MPM! We need some photos, please.

    Nighty noodles all.

  69. Mollypop's Mom
    9:38 pm on March 29th, 2014

    Rio, yes, actually AJ did take me over the Steps. I was sitting in the front of the sled in the basket, and we came to two high hills and became airborne each time.

  70. Tupper's Mama
    9:54 pm on March 29th, 2014

    MPM – so glad you are having a grand time. Please give that wonderful Hobbit a hug from all of us here – especially the Singing Herbal Kats.

    I’m Baaack. I had two very busy days and had to catch up on everyone tonight. Did anyone else notice the Storytellers GREEN shoes in his wonderful news story? I thought they were fabulous!

    Mollypop’s Mom I am so glad you made it safely way up North and got to ride the runners at Snowhook. The video of CHobbit on the sled was great. She was hanging on for dear life I could tell. I bet it feels good to know AJ is right behind you ready to save your bacon if something ‘interesting’ happens.

    Dawson your glasses have been sent on their way home. Hope it doesn’t take forever for them to arrive. I did not send the pooting hippo book so you must tell me your wishes on it’s behalf.

    Macy I am sorry the cheapest hotel was not up to snuff but maybe you can get some rest with the pillow man over at the most expensive hotel.

    I wonder if Mollypop’s Mom is tired out after her day with the dogs?

    Day is done, gone the sun, from the hills, from the lakes, from the skies.

    anybody happen to know the the rest of this? I think the last line is God is nigh.

    Thank you all again and again and… for being such wonderful friends. It is so nice to know that if I wake up in the middle of the night and leave words they will be received warmly, even if they don’t make sense.

    Love, love, loved CHobbit on the runners. I had so much fun when I did even though I was begging AJ to stop!
