Chet and Bernie #5: Last Day of Revision (KOW)

“Then can we get the Christmas tree?” says Admin.

“Why don’t you go and get it yourself?” says Spence. “They’ll help you strap it on the roof. Take the bungee cords.”

Admin produces the chain saw. “This year,” he says, “I was kind of thinking we’d mosey down under the power lines and grab us a wild one.”

Uh-oh.

Welcome CuChulainn and Lily.

    Uh-oh is right!

    Good morning all.

    Good morning.

    What is KOW?

    Mollypop’s Mom: I’m wondering the same thing. Is there enough snow yet?

    I watched one hour of Bag of Bones but then gave up. There didn’t seem to be much “story” and there were far too many facial gyrations by the Bronson character.

    Good Morning B & MollyPop’s Mom & All.
    Bag of Bones got bad reviews. The book is good.
    I voted!
    KOW?

    Title of Book #5?

    Good Morning.
    After you vote, check this out. If it doesn’t arrive clickable, it’s worth the effort it takes to copy and paste it.

    Greetings All!

    I voted very early this morning!
    KOW?????

    I read “Bag of Bones” a lot of years ago, and remember liking it very much. “THe Firm” is being turned into a TV movie as well. I think it’s on this week.

    Thoughts going out to Dan and Mary’s mom!!! Get well soon!

    KOW: Knock on Wood?

  9. Sam
    9:10 am on December 12th, 2011

    Tyb, that video could be me with long hair. I have been pleading with my family to let my hair grow so I can play Princess when Chet’s book becomes a movie. Now I have to make sure my girl doesn’t see that video. She would do that to me for sure.

  10. Melanie
    9:30 am on December 12th, 2011

    Rose, I like the “knock on wood” much better than my brain was coming up with “Kanine on Wool”. Don’t ask . . .

    So Bag of Bones was just a dry rattling of empty facial gestures. Bummer. The book was good.

    Today after the audition YSAS is coming up to meet his LVD (Las Vegas Dealer) cousin at the train station. Then they will visit Dan come here for the night and then leave in the morning. Visit Dan on the way to boston where LVDN will hoop on a plain and YSAS will hop on the bus.

    Oh, energy. I remember the concept.

    Good Morning Chet. Don’t grab Admin by the leg if he gets tangled up in the power lines.

  11. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    9:31 am on December 12th, 2011

    TYB, that was very vote.

    Mom suffered a heart attack and is sedated and in critical condition. She cannot breathe on her own, but is expected to live. She has congestive heart failure and COPD. My sister Barb is with her now.

  12. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    9:33 am on December 12th, 2011

    Hugh pooh! I said cute, not vote!

  13. Melanie
    9:33 am on December 12th, 2011

    Sam, you would be perfect as Princess even if someone did that to you! Just hope no one tries to do that to the Newfs. That would be scary.

    BTW, LVDN will be hopping on a plane not hooping. Though one can not ever count that out with him!

  14. Melanie
    9:34 am on December 12th, 2011

    That is sad and good news about your mom’s mom Wolfie.

    Praying that all continues to improve.

  15. Rose
    9:45 am on December 12th, 2011

    Wolfie: I am very sorry to hear this news. Strong prayers are coming from Westchester….

    Chainsaw!….Is it just me or does Admin seem a little out of touch with reality some days?…heh!…..Spencer must have taken typing lessons or sumthing. He really wrote this last book fast! He’s already making revisions…sniff!… Soon they will all be jetting off for their Christmas vacation…(((sigh)))….What a life.

    Ouch!…I’m glad I don’t have long hair…snort! … It’s bad enough when someone touches the tip of my nose and shocks me…yeep!

  17. Kirby T. Penworthy
    10:19 am on December 12th, 2011

    Good morning, y’all!

    I haven’t been on in a few days — Mom just needs to learn how to say, “No!” Too, too busy even to think about letting me on the computer. She does try to keep up at work — when she has time there — so she lets me know what’s happening, but she hasn’t even done that the past few days. Her Christmas play is next weekend, so maybe she’ll have more time to let me on the computer after that.

    Mary: We’ll keep your mom in our thoughts and prayers. The news sounds serious, but hopeful!

  18. Masquers
    10:20 am on December 12th, 2011

    Rose: Didn’t Tom Cruise star in The Firm a few years back? Pretty good movie as I recall.

    Melanie: The Newfs all fluffed up? Scary x nine.
    Paws crossed and Good Thoughts sent for YSuccessfulActorS at the Audition today.

    Wolfie’s Mom: Sending prayers every day for your mom’s complete recovery. Remember to take care of yourself too.

    10:48 am on December 12th, 2011

    Poor Sammie. I did pass Tyb’s Static Maltese video on to her girl at college.

    B. – Our snow is piling up very nicely. We just need the cold temperatures to stay. I’ll take another picture of the ever-bigger snow piles tomorrow.

  20. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:49 am on December 12th, 2011

    Kirby!… I was thinking about you this morning pal, wondering how that Christmas play went…snort!…I guess it hasn’t gone yet…sniff!

    Photo’s!….Wasn’t Wookie going to post some Martha Stewart type photos of the place settings for the big blow-out dinner party?….snort!….Did I miss them?

  21. Masquers
    11:23 am on December 12th, 2011

    No photos yet. Wookie?

  22. Mollypop's Mom

    We’re still anxiously awaiting the Wookster’s photos.

    Sorry about the delay on the photo. While the table setting was spectacular again (my mom really gets into it), it was somewhat harder to photograph this year than last year (and my dad is all thumbs when it comes to cameras and photography as well). While it may be hard to see in the photo below, hanging from the ceiling were three sets of branches, in a coppery metalic color, with crystal-like icicles hanging off of them. The table had a wonderful array of greens, including magnolia leaves with gold glitter on them. All in all, very festive and very evocative of New Orleans. Wookie

    Wöökie, thanks for filling the take out bags under the Packs’ chins. I just wished SOME of the food had gotten here. by the time they blurred home, Mac had his fur caught in the velcro on Mattie’s bag and she was leading him around. Franklin was sitting on top of upside down dogs, Grace and Rose, eating out of their bags. rolling eyes here

    Lots of complaining . . .

    Plunderer Prayers are hardy! YSAS ended up with two auditions today! Both for good parts. Keep those vibes coming!

    12:06 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Mary, More prayers coming your way!

    Wookie, Beautiful. Tried to enlarge to see in more detail, but that didn’t happen.

    Glad you guys agreed with Barb. Tried watching Bag of Bones, but as posted last night, we gave up after about 45 minutes. Just too wierd. We were interested until after she got hit by the bus, then it went down hill from there.

    Barb got a package mailed, and may work on more cookies, plus some gift wrapping. Not feeling high energy today.

    Watched a quirky little film yesterday. Think it was called The Answer Man, with Jeff Daniels and Laura Graham. It was cute and better than B of B!

  34. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:12 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Mail!…. Oh NO!…snort!….Barb just reminded me that today is when all the little boxes within boxes are supposed to arrive on peoples doorsteps all across this country …wheeze!…. Someone I know is very worried about them getting lost or devoured along the way….wiffle! ….So if youse all would be so kind as to report to me when (and if) they arrive? I’m keeping an official tally for my friend…sniff!

  35. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:54 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Tracking!…. OH NO!….snort!….MollysMom must not have been home when the little box arrived….grunt!… The Tracking tool says “Notice Left”…..sob!

  36. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:55 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Oley!….The Tracker says Oley Howlers mailman is on his way to deliver the little box within the box!…yippee!….I sure hope someone is home there….grunt!

  37. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:57 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Barb!….The Tracker says your mailman is on his way to deliver the little box within the box too!…yippee!….You are home, aren’t you?…..sniff!

    Melanie: The River Bears – Miles of Smiles.

    MollyPop’s Mom: Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!!!

    Off to the Post Office to mail 2 packages. Will be back in a few.

  39. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:00 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Canada!…..Dawg knows where the little boxes are in Canada….grunt!….The other two guys, and you know who you are, your little boxes are still being processed…sniff!….They are in your State though….whew!

  40. Siber-H
    1:25 pm on December 12th, 2011

    In my state? This is where the little boxes journey gets very scary.

    Mollypop’s mom, We have another storm coming in so that is probably why your weather is turning “nice.” It seems to work that way. Paws crossed for you that the magnificent snow guns can keep working. Our mountains are getting lots of natural snow.

    Mary, prayers going out for you, your mom, and your family.

    Go! Clarkson! Go!

  41. Rose
    1:29 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Masquers: You are right about “The Firm.” This movie apparently picks up ten years after the original.

  42. Snowhook Bella
    1:39 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Work was cancelled on account of weather and bad roads today. Which means, I’ll still work, just from home whilst wearing my fleece long underwear, but I won’t have the ugly commute to battle.

    Three of my first thoughts this morning were for Mary’s mom, Dan the man, and YSAS.

    Rio: I recieved and email from a friend of your friend about the fishing vest. Paws crossed that it can make it in time for Christmas.

  43. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:49 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Delivered!….MollysMom must have picked up the box with the other little box inside it….snort!…Its probably on its way home with her right now!….Yeep!

  44. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:51 pm on December 12th, 2011

    SiberH!…Yours is still being “Processed…”….grunt! …That is scary!

    Oley!….Your little box is with your mailman right now on its way to be delivered….snort!

    Someone had asked about Pierre Roux Cake, which was one of the deserts mom made for last Saturday night. The recipe is actually from John Besh’s cookbook, My New Orleans (he is getting a lot of airtime on the Top Chef Texas series on right now, as one of the judges). Slight typo in the name on my part; it is actually Pere Roux Cake, named for Father Roux, a New Orleans priest and cook who is one of chef John Besh’s friends. Besh fashioned this recipe after one that Père Roux bakes for himself every year on his birthday, with layers of white cake and a buttery banana filling with plenty of rum, all topped with a cream cheese frosting. The filling is a lot like Bananas Foster, another New Orleans delight. If anyone would like to see the recipe, here is a link to it from Food & Wine Magazine. It was yummy, too. Wookie

    Score!… 1 ta Nuthing – the Goats are losing so far!…heh!heh!

  47. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:01 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Wiley!…. Although, those Marauding Goats are pretty cunning…sniff!… One of them may have slipped into the post office wearing a MollysMom Mask….grunt!…Oh no! I won’t really know if the package was successfully delivered until M&M says something ….gulp!

  48. Mollypop's Mom
    2:02 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Rio – I got it, but just barely. There are teeth marks on the box! Those stupid goats.

    The contents of the beautiful little red box are lovely, lovely, lovely. None of the pictures have done them justice. You have to actually see the gift cards. Oh, and of course, the autographed picture from Curly Tail Quilling.

  49. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:06 pm on December 12th, 2011

    MollysMom!…I knew you would love the pawtographed foto of me the best!…yippeee!…Goats 0 – Mailmen 1…snort!

  50. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:11 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Maskers!….Your little box has successfully been sorted….snort!….You are beating SiberH’s little box by hours and hours….sniff! ….His is still being “Processed…”….grunt!

  51. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:42 pm on December 12th, 2011

    SiberH!….The date on the “Processing…” comment is Dec. 10th!….wheeze!….That package has been sitting around and no one has done anything with it since Saturday…..grump! ….What the hell!

  52. Masquers
    2:55 pm on December 12th, 2011

    I am waiting patiently (as only a kat can do).

  53. Siber-H
    2:56 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Rio, They will get it processed, I know they will. NM is not the land of “hurry and get it done”.
    Even if it should arrive at my house today, it won’t be till after dark. It is Monday, it is the busy season, and it is SNOWING! All the above slow down mail delivery.

  54. Snowhook Bella

    3:46 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Rio,
    The vest is here in Minneapolis so as soon as I get the address from Rebecca I will send it off. Dawson left it in her room, or my sewing room whichever you want to call it. I wondered what was in that bag and peeked. So I can send it.
    Rebecca, you better send me the address also as Dawson is a little slow with that SDD….snicker.

    yay YSAS

    Prayers for all the ill ones and their ill mothers.

    I wish I was getting little cards, however I did get a quad card so I must not be greedy.

  56. Staff
    3:51 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Ohhhh and all their ill fathers too.

    Here is a video Mr.Staff sent me. He remembers it from a Prairie Companion Show.

    BBL lots to do.

  57. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:52 pm on December 12th, 2011

  58. Snowhook Bella
    3:54 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Staff: I’m waiting for the shipping address from the buyer of the vest. Once I have it, I will send it along to you via SDD. Thanks!

  59. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:55 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Staff! …As an added precaution, I will have my friend ask her friend to send you her address…snort!…Oh, I am so glad the fishing vest is in the US of A….woooooo!

    3:59 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Don’t forget to vote! Have some Newfoundland dog buddies (remember they are working dogs too) voting for AJ now!

    YSAS auditions: The first one went great. Indie film. People liked him. It was only after he gave his resume when they called him back and said, “Hey, YSAS, you’re Union.” His agent had sent him in on a non-Union film. sign

    Next was the other one for TV. everyone had one line to read and some action. They were looking for a certain look. Hopefully, and we won’t know for a while, YSAS will have that look!

    I LOVE Pearl’s glamour shot! She is almost the color of the sand, and I love the reflection of the sun on the water.

  63. BearSpiritDog
    4:08 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Staff: Thank you for the trip back in time. Sometimes memories of the past can be so vivid we can see, hear, taste, smell, and feel like we are right there. This is true Time Travel.

    Pearl is a little cutie for sure.

  64. Snowhook Bella
    4:10 pm on December 12th, 2011

    That first audition was to warm YSAS up for the second audition.

    Delivered!…..Barb should now have her little box within a box!….snort!snort!…. Goats 0 – Mailmen 3….yippeeee!

  66. Barb & Maggie
    4:24 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Rio, We have our beautiful box in hand, and there is no goat damage. Maybe our goatie girls scared the MGs away! Anyway, they are truly a work of art. Each one is different and so beautiful. We will NOT be giving them away. There are enough that we could decorate our little table top tree with them. How cool would that be?

  67. Snowhook Bella
    4:26 pm on December 12th, 2011

    B&M: Would you be willing to share a photo of the quilled card tree so we can see the lovely cards?

  68. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:36 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Barb!…Did you find the photo of moi?…heh!

  69. Barb & Maggie
    4:51 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Oh Rio, We forgot to mention the most important part – your signed photo. That will have to go up there with our signed SQ books and our Little Detective Agency business cards.

    Rebecca, Actually we already have our little tree decorated with bird ornaments for this year. We were thinking next year. However, there is a chance we could get out our other table top tree and set it up in the sunroom, if we have time. Let us work on that project!

  70. Masquers
    4:52 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Rio! We are twirling, twirling!!! The Little box of Gift Cards has arrived! MollyPop’s Mom is so right – the pictures do not describe the true beauty of each little card. As Barb says, they are all different. They came in a beautiful little box – a gift in itself. We will be hanging the cards on our tree also, where they can be enjoyed and admired throughout the holidays. I feel very fortunate to have this unique item and will treasure it always. Love the bonus – a pawtographed picture of you, my friend.

  71. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:01 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Yippeee!….So all that is left is SiberH (((sigh)))…snort!….And then of course Dawson. This one is expected to take longer what with Royal Canadian Reindeer sorting the mail up there…grunt!

    He needs to be in NYC at 3:00 pm tomorrow.
    Hip Hip Hurrah!

  73. Snowhook Bella
    5:04 pm on December 12th, 2011

    B&M: Please don’t go to any trouble to fullfil my request. I misunderstood and thought you were going to decorate your tree this year with the cards.

    Staff and Dawson: The shipping address has been received. Please check your SDD.

  74. Snowhook Bella
    5:06 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Melanie: Of course he got a call back. You don’t get the word ‘successful’ in your nickname and not get call backs. Oh, this is great news!

  75. Melanie
    5:07 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Thanks all!
    I am glad the boxes within boxes are getting to where they belong.
    I just discovered that one of Fs presents is coming from Canada !
    You MGs better keep away from it!

    5:14 pm on December 12th, 2011

    You know, It is a sorry state of affairs when I live the closest to Rio and my gift cards are arriving last. (except for Dawson)

    Pictures of Pearl are always appreciated. What a cutie!

    Ditto on the Hip Hip Hurrah for YSAS!

  80. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:26 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Sorted!….Check it out SiberH!…snort!… The status of your little box finally changed and it has now been Sorted….heh!….Maybe you will get it late tonight after-all….sniff!

  81. Masquers
    5:29 pm on December 12th, 2011

    5:44 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Melanie, We are so happy for YSAS. We can say we kenw him when!

    Have located extra tree, now just need to get it out and set up. Time, we need more time!

  83. B.Stover
    5:53 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Aren’t Rio’s friend’s cards beautiful. I’m glad everyone is getting theirs safely.

    Well done YSAS!

    Law enforcement officials have been on the lookout for a troop of Marauding Goats, last seen heading for the main post office. The unusual amounts of snow falling on the city have made it easy to follow their movements. One Goat was captured in nearby Rio Rancho after falling into a large hole in a backyard.
    “We have a hole digging expert here, so we know how to avoid those ‘pitfalls’. But they are great door to door salesman and burglar deterants” the homeowner said.
    The captured Goat is not talking, so officials have no idea why they are being attracted to the post office. CSI’s are being called in to examine some curled, colorful bits of paper hanging from the Goat’s beard.
    If spotted, do not approach the Goats. They are considered legged and dangerous. However, if they are all one color, they could have just wandered down from Lena, IL.
    More news to come – film at 11.

    LOL! Those are not my goats! Just checked the barn and they are all safely locked away for the night. And none have any quilled paper on horns or beards. Maggie, Detective in Charge, Illinois Division.

    Rio!!!! Mom and Pop just got home and guess what? They found the box with the little box inside!!! It was on a chair in the barn…that’s where the mailman leaves packages to make sure they are safe. OMD Those cards are the prettiest little cards one can imagine. They looked great online, but nothing like they do in person!!! WOW !!! We love them…and there seem to be so many of them, and all different designs. Every time we find one we love best, there is another we love best. Now we are having second thoughts about using them for the SILs’ presents. Mom thinks it would be terrible to even write a name on them.
    Also, thanks for the pawtographed card!

    Siber-H: Your hole digging talents made the paper! I wonder if the MG that is in custody is still being questioned. I bet he’ll talk in time.

    As I walked in to the Post Office, I heard laughing from around back. It was like the way the pigs laugh in the game Angry Birds. A nasty evil laugh. And then I had teeth marks on the box!

    Nice trees Barb. Are any of those plates in the second picture, flow blue china? I collect flow blue.

    We had moonlight, sunlight, frost,
    fog, ice and cold. But no snow.
    Thank kat for that!

    Bee, I don’t think there is any flow blue. There are a couple of pieces of colbalt, and I think 2 of the plates are blue willow. Does that sound right?

    News Flash!

    WOO WOO I got the gift cards!! They are beautiful! Love all the different colors!! We think Rio’s friend should start going to art shows. Her work is so original and the detailed work on them is amazing. We aren’t sharing them with anyone. They have a forever home right here with us.
    Thanks for the pawtographed card, Rio. You are a great pal.

    BTW There is one less goat in the gang. I got him. He is
    10-7 (cop speak for done in)

    Don’t mean to burst any bubbles, but aren’t all of the people up for the vote finalists. Our job is to make AJ the winner among the finalists.

    Our ex-governor has bought a vacation home on Cape Cod. I will say no more.

    Maggie, Nice Trees!

    Thanks Barb. That sounds right. They looked like willow but I had to check.

    I thought the “finalist” mention on Facebook meant that the number is narrowing down. They did not mention any of the others. Here is their blurb from an hour ago:

    “Justin “AJ” Savidis, finalist for Stormy Kromer Living Legend 2012, finished the Iditarod race in Alaska this year and chose the Alaska Children’s Trust as his charity. The organization works to prevent child abuse and neglect, with a goal to make sure kids are healthy, safe, and secure. Support AJ and the Alaska Children’s Trust by voting for him.”

    Pitfalls!….heh!…. Hole digging expert!….chorkel!…I’m laughing and I never laugh…snort! …So everyone but Dawson has their little cards and their little boxes and a damned nice photo of me!…chuffle! …Look Barb even decorated her tree with my friends cards. This day is turning out okay after all….heh!…Film at 11!

    Stover!…The fact that they did not mention any other “finalists” is really encouraging….Woooo!….Everybody keep voting! We can do this for AJ the Giant!…Wow!

    A couple of days ago, I read a short blurb about another finalist. I think they are
    doing these mentions to call attention to the contest and to get people interested in the competition so that they will read the listings and vote. I hope that I’ve misinterpreted what is happening and that AJ is, indeed, pulling ahead of the pack. Everyone who votes is an email address in their database to be used later for recruiting customers.

    I read on an earlier posts on Stormy Kromer’s facebookie that they had over 6500 votes cast already with only one week left of voting! Wow! That’s a lot of votes. My guess is that they probably highlight the different finalists here and there; I’m only concerned with one finalist. :)

    Siber, At least your Gov goes to the Cape. Ours goes to jail..There is one there now, and Blo-go is heading that way after the first of the year. Think he got 14 years, which he sooo deserved! He isn’t quite so cocky now.

    9:20 pm on December 12th, 2011

    Finalist!….I wish all those people in Costa Rica would gather round and vote for AJ …..snort! … I can’t believe we are coming up on the last weekend to vote…wuffle!

    Mr. Tibbs!…How right you are!…snort!…I’ve already gotten an advertisement from them in my email in-box….grunt!….Thats okay though, because they are a classy company…sniff!

    Lampoon!….We three are watching National Lampoons Christmas Vacation…heh!…Well Beau isn’t, he is asleep on her lap!…grrr!… Haven’t seen this one from the beginning in a really long time…chuffle!…They just turned all the lights on…heh!

    Barb, A Grand Jury is investigating this ex-governor. He had to drop out of the last presidental race because of hints of corruption. Notice how far away from NM he chose to have his vacation home.

    Lampoon!….That is still a funny movie!…heh!heh!…We all enjoyed it, except for Beau, he slept through it….snorkel!….Now we are watching A White Christmas although we both know even we hard-core-staying-up-late guys cannot possibly stay up to see the end of this movie….wuffle!… We will get to see the Sisters act though…heh!…Love it!

    Siber, Is this guy good looking and named Bill? I think I remember him in the news a few years back.

    We are signing off for the night. Sweet dreams.

    Greetings from day 2 of “the big walk”. We put untold miles on our poor feet. My bad knee is looking more like a basketball every day, but we are having a lot of fun. We visited the St. Louis cemetery which was really interesting to see, especially the crypt of the voodoo queen with all the offerings left to her, mostly makeup, plus a week’s worth of birth control pills! No idea! Also there is Nicholas Cage’s pre-need crypt, in the shape of pyramid.

    We also visited the cathedral, where I lit a candle for all Plunderers in distress. I hope it is ok for Methodists to light candles in the Catholic church. I am pretty sure that the Recipient of the prayer doesn’t care what brand you are.

    NiteyNite tomorrow is lunch at Emeril’s. BAM y’all!

    Hi, guys. Just caught up on the blog postings since last Thursday night. Mom and Dad had a really busy weekend and Mom still has more decorating to do. Thank goodness that the outside of the house is finished and about 1/2 of the inside is done. Mom really LOVES Christmas and making the house special.

    Wolfie, we are sending cat and people prayers for your Mom’s Mom. It looks like the worst is over. Hopefully her recovery will be easier than Dan’s has been. Melanie, super glad that the leg is healing and hopefully, Dan will be home soon.

    Wookie, beautiful table. Mom decorates her table for both the Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Sometimes we think that is becoming a lost art. Mom was showing her niece how to place the silver JUST SO in the placesetting. Actually, that niece likes to have fancy dinner parties so she was loving helping.

    Mom is super tired so is making us turn off the computer for the night. Prayers for all in this blog family in need.

    Mom is awake and doing better. The problem is with her heart. She is having a stress test tomorrow and if necessary, an angiogram and an angioplasty. The Plunderers Prayers worked again! Thanks one and all!
