Chet And Bernie In Bayou Country

“Bayou country, big guy,” Bernie said. He sniffed the air. Whoa! How often did that happen? “I think I smell something.” Go on, Bernie, go on. But he did not. There was lots to smell, of course, way too much to go into now, but sometimes in life one certain smell dominates all the others – take that time all the trash haulers in the Valley went on strike – and that was the case here in bayou country. This was a rot domination zone, no question, rot falling down on and rising up through all the other smells out there. Quite pleasant: I liked it here!

    Sorry Chet but rot is not pleasant. Why are you guys in bayou country?

    Good morning all.

    Good morning plunderers. Reporting in from the middle of the mitten. Have you forgotten me? Sorry I haven’t been around much, but mom has been busy, busy, busy.

    I visited sissy yesterday; she had the expanders removed and implants placed last Wed, she only took a tylenol 3 for pain. Her hair is starting to grow back. She tires easily and has neuropathy in her hands and feet. She is concerned that if the neuropathy doesn’t go away she will be unable to work. Because she has no feeling in her fingers, it will be impossible for her to continue her work as a seamstress.

    Mom is dealing with a bunch of naughty people at her busy place. She has been traveling 1-2 days per week to the southeast corner of the mitten to deal with the mess. She’s traveling again tomorrow to talk with one of the people on suspension, and still has another interview to be scheduled with someone else on suspension. Naughty, naughty, naughty. I keep my nose super clean around here. Mom doesn’t need anyone else being naughty.

    Mom made two quilts and donated them to a fundraiser for a coworker who had a stroke at age 28. He is getting better, but it is slow going for him. He just got his driver license back, is back in his own home and independent. He walks pretty good, but his speach and reaction time is slow. He has to work hard to get his thoughts to come out in his speach in a way that can be understood.

    The weight loss continues for mom. She’s having to buy all new clothes because nothing fits her any more. She puts on a shirt and realizes she can’t wear it any more because it’s falling off her shoulders. This is a happy problem, and the Goodwill donation box is so big, the sides split. Mom is taking one less high blood pressure pill, and is hopeful in another month or two she can completely stop taking HBP meds alltoghether.

    I think of you all often, just don’t have a chance to get here much. Mom is still active on facebookie, just send her a note or message. Stay cool.

    Staying cool here Jasper! Sounds like your mom is doing great! Did you test those quilts for her?

    B.Stover, The Pack loves rot. The “rotter” the better. Not sure about Bayou Rot. That might have a completely different rot smell.

    Hi Jasper! We’ve missed you. So glad to hear that all is well. How is your mom losing her weight? (Besides the obvious?)

    Mom works with a crazy lady. She is late everyday, spends much of her time on facebookie and other social sites, and is just plain odd. Not sure why she is still around.

    Rot smell? I love it too. It is like an orchestra, with layers and layers of complexity.

    Good Sunday, All. Mom loves bayou country too. We love rot.

    We just now caught up on last night’s blog. Rio, your friend’s story is very well-written, and brought back a flood of memories for Mom. You see, she also has a brother she idolized, as well as a sister. She can easily relate to the way your friend’s moon-landing memories are all wrapped up with the thrill of watching it with her big brother. Well-done. Thanks for typing it and sharing it. By the way, it is on the blog…not in moderation.

    10:22 am on August 26th, 2012

    Morning all. It’s the last day of the Really Ling Shew (thank dog)

    We know why Bernie is in bayou country, but we can’t say.

    Jasper – good for your Mom. Between her and CHobbit, Melanie and some others, we have decided that belonging to the Plunderers contributes to weight loss. We are hoping that we catch it next.

    The WiFi Pirates are warming up in the bullpen, so we will be offline soon. And since we will be packing out tonight, we won’t be at the hotel until at least 1 am. Don’t think anyone( except Liz) will be around then. So we will be back when we are able. Until then – PlunderPrayers to all of you

    Good Morning Everyone!

    How did Chet and Bernie end up in Bayou Contry? I suppose it is Louisiana. Rot or no rot, give me the desert any day.

    Rio’s story did make it through moderation so it is on yesterday’s blog.

    Jasper, Very good to hear from you.

    10:25 am on August 26th, 2012

    Just saw Wolfie’s post. What’s going on???? First I got rid of my Crazy Lady, then Barb was finally able to get rid if HER Crazy Lady, but now Wolfie’s Mom has one? Contagious Crazy??

    10:36 am on August 26th, 2012

    Mom is dancing, twirling, and singing this morning. She just had a splendid ride on the best horse of all time. Old Shiek’s still got it. You shoulda’ seen that guy moving out. At first, we were folowing them, but then we got the message (from Shiek?) that this was a very special alone-time reunion of two very close friends, with tons of memories to rehash. So we kept an eye on them from afar.

  10. Siber-H
    10:47 am on August 26th, 2012

    Fellow Sibers, Glad to hear Shiek is doing well. I am sure he enjoyed the ride as much as your mom did.

    10:51 am on August 26th, 2012

    Good Morning All!

    Bear and Masquers were up top. Then Bear!

    Rio! Your friend’s story was beautiful, and it made me tear up!

    T&G, good luck to your mum and dad on this, the last day of the fair! Please check you SDD when able!

    Hey there, Jasper! Good to hear from you! Goods wishes to sissy, and as far as your mom, “You go, girl!”

    OH: Good news about Shiek!

    Chet and Bernie in the Bayou? Where was I when this happened?!

  12. dawson
    10:58 am on August 26th, 2012

    Chet: I’ve always wanted to visit the Bayou country but my feet keep going North.

    Jasper: Thanks for the update. I hope the feeling comes back to Missy’s hands and feet. Good on ya for continuing to make and donate quilts to good causes and for losing weight.

    Rio: I had an emotional reaction to your story…because it was about your brother and I am missing mine…

    Oops, there goes the bell.

    11:03 am on August 26th, 2012

    Brother!…No, I don’t think her brother has ever read that story, to answer Staff’s question from last night…snort!

  14. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:09 am on August 26th, 2012

    Errands!…My friend says she has to get some stuff out of the way before we can come back downstairs and relax. First off, the big walk, then the groceries then make some green chili with chilis from the garden, then laundry, then …..sniff!…Maybe then we can relax…grunt!

    Howlers – tears here. Been there. Done that. Special times, may they long continue.

    11:19 am on August 26th, 2012

    Rio, we saw your post after it cleared the moderation dogs, and we were really touched by it. It wasn’t necessarily what we were expecting, but in fact it was a whole lot more personal and even better than what we thought it might be. It was truly a memorable time for all who got to see it, and we think it will be even more memorable for us now having read your friend’s story.

  17. BearSpiritDog
    11:27 am on August 26th, 2012

    This must be a chapter from AFOC? Rolling around in it is my favorite thing to do and an excellent way to bring home all those enticing smells from the beach.

    Jasper: It’s great to hear from you and your mom. Sounds like you both have been very busy. Prayers for Sissy that the neuropathy is temporary and will slowly lessen over the coming months.

    O.Howlers: Howling with joy for your mom and Shiek’s special ride yesterday.

    Tupper&Gilly: Fingers crossed all those bulky items will be sold today so your mum and dad can return home with a very light load.

    Rio: Your Friend’s wonderful story had Someone here very emotional. IMHO she should have gotten an A+ with no deductions for length of story. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

    Good Morning to All! Off to have the most important meal of the day.

  18. B.Stover
    11:30 am on August 26th, 2012

    Howlers: I like the photo of Shiek and rider on Facebook.

    Rio: I enjoyed your friend’s story.

    SH: I thought you preferred Alaska….

    New Orleans has superb food.

    I can’t get sound on the Munchies video just as I still cannot get sound on YouTube. I don’t know what the problem is.

  19. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    11:36 am on August 26th, 2012

    Rio, we love, love, love your story. Well done! It brought back back a flood of memories of mom’s brother. He was younger, but was always the leader, and mom worshiped him. I hope your friend shows her brother the story someday.

  20. Siber-H
    12:03 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Stover, I do prefer Alaska, but I will choose the desert over the swamp. I really hate bugs.

  21. Kirby T. Penworthy
    12:08 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Rio: If you could see me right now, you’d know that I’m doing a standing ovation — and that’s not easy for a dog to do! That was a great story — and I agree with all those who say you should show it to your brother. Back then he probably would have punched you for writing something like that, but I think enough years have passed that he would be flattered to know how much he meant to you.

  22. Masquers
    12:10 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Riö: Ha! We knew it – the verboten word was mentioned in your friend’s most excellent story. But despite the foe paw the moderator finally allowed it to post. OFA must be so proud to see such talent from one of our own on this here blog.
    BTW: Although Siber assures me it is not my fault, I do take responsibility for the team’s recent loss. As we all know, these things are easily jinxed by the premature boasting of victory.
    B: Did you try signing up for YouTube? It would be a shame to miss out on this great video because of some glitch.
    Rose: No fried pickle at the fair?

  23. B.Stover
    12:20 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Masquers: I am signed up for YouTube. The sound just stopped working one day.

  24. bluecat
    12:20 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Rio – finally got to your friend’s story. What Wookie said is very true. The story ads another layer to the memories. Thanks for sharing.

  25. B.Stover
    12:22 pm on August 26th, 2012

    The sound on my computer works for everything else but not for YouTube.

  26. Masquers
    12:48 pm on August 26th, 2012

    B: Apparently you are not alone. This seems to be a common problem. The following links may help, but our resident computer geek may want to weight in also.

  27. Masquers
    12:55 pm on August 26th, 2012
    One suggestion was to reinstall the Adobe Flash Player. I would try this first. Are you using IE or Google Chrome? Mom has had similiar issues with NBC…the commercials playing but no sound or picture for the show she is trying to watch.
    I’m certainly not a technokat and hope Mollys Mom, who is much better informed than I, can offer some suggestions.

  28. Princess Sam
    1:08 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Molly’s Mom is coming! She has cataract surgery tomorrow and is staying until Thursday since my family will be gone for a couple of days. This means I have to get her up early so she can make my soft boiled egg. Jumping up and down on her works well for this. Then I can take a nap since I had to get up so early. Happy days!

  29. B.Stover
    1:08 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Thank you Masquers. I did try Microsoft support and Toshiba troubleshooting but to no avail. I’m going to wait for my computer wizard friend and see if he can fix it.

  30. OleyHowlers
    1:09 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Bee, could you read the rider’s tee shirt?

  31. BearSpiritDog
    1:25 pm on August 26th, 2012

    O.Howlers: What a wonderful picture of your mom and Shiek! And I like the t-shirt.

    B: You are wise to wait for your wizard friend.

  32. Melanie
    1:27 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Riö, wonderful writing by your friend. I printed it out for Dan.

    B.Stover, you’ve probably already done this. But, go to munchies and then in the bottom left part of the youtube screen, place the cursor over the volume control (looks like a megaphone?). It will then raise up and you will see if the sound is on or up high enough.

  33. Masquers
    1:27 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Howlers: Can you ask your mom to post the picture here on the blog?

  34. B.Stover
    1:28 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Howlers: I went back and zoomed in. LOL!

  35. B.Stover
    1:38 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Melanie is a genius! It worked!!

    I love the part in Munchies when McKey comes back inside and his heart is beating through his t-shirt. (I also love his voice.) How did they get all of those people to play zombies? (I would definitely not want to be the last woman on earth….)

  36. Siber-H
    1:43 pm on August 26th, 2012

    I love how Melanie took only what she needed from a youtube video to show Stover. That is precision borrowing.

  37. Masquers
    1:53 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Thank Kat someone on this here blog knows what they are talking about.

  38. Masquers
    1:54 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Yay, Melanie!

    September 30th Season premiere of Once Upon A Time! 2 other new shows that might prove interesting: Nashville and 666 Park Avenue.

    Rio: Just finished episode #4 of BB…featuring scene 2 of the Birthday Breakfast…slowly catching up while at the same time trying to make this final season last as long as possible.

    Masquers: Why do kats always make things so complicated? One thing dogs know is the simplest explanation is usually the best.

  40. OleyHowlers
    2:29 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Masquers, we will post that picture when/if Mom lets us get on her big computer. We can’t post pictures on this here blog from our iPaw.

  41. BearSpiritDog

    OMD! I just remembered! Today is National Dog Day.

  42. Siber-H

    WOO WOO Happy Dog Day to all us dogs!

  43. Kat
    2:41 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Siber, am I a Dog? I get confused.

  44. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:08 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Holy!…Moley!…Youse guys have been busy while I was upstairs supervising the unloading of groceries and then the making of green chile….sniff!…It already smells like a big ole pot of fire!….wheeze!…Then I had to watch her load the laundry. Now we are resting and waiting for the game to start. Whats up with this? Is it a rain delay or sumthing in Chicago?…grump!

    Story!…My friend really appreciates all your super nice comments about her story. There were so many other things she wanted to add to it at the time but that derned teacher had a length limitation…..grunt!….There was going to be a whole paragraph on the way her brother would devour the Estes Rockets magazine searching for the next best rocket kit to buy with his limited funds…snort!…She remembers him begging for more allowance. The answer was always NO…heh!heh!…Talk about pissed off!…snicker!…Oh and then there is the classic story of her brother and that boy Davey putting a large shotgun shell in a vice and pulling it apart for the gun powder…sneeze!…The whole firecracker thing always got out of control each year. He loved blowing things up and starting fires. The shed out there on the farm still has the charred wood beam where he set it on fire one day…chorkel!…I think that event was the end of his gun-powder days…heh!

  46. Siber-H
    3:20 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Kat, sigh, Yes, you are a Dog, but I see why you might be confused because of the way we spell kat (feline) here on the blog.
    It was Rio that taught us a long time ago how to spell kat correctly.
    Your name should always begin with a capital K and we don’t need to bother with the feline kats needing a capital letter because, well, they are kats.

  47. B.Stover
    3:23 pm on August 26th, 2012

    I think it’s beer Bear.

    Rio: Tell your friend that I think she should add to the story. As she’s writing she’ll probably think of more things to include.

  48. Siber-H
    3:30 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Rio, The internet says the game is delayed, but it doesn’t say why.

    Your friend’s brother reminds me of our neighbor. Mom has known him since he was 7 years old and he is 36 now. He came close to blowing a hole through their entire house when he was a teenager playing with a homemade cannon. The explosion shook our house.

  49. Melanie
    4:02 pm on August 26th, 2012

    It is not real beer. Non-alcoholic – Non carbonated. Has beef or chicken, malt barley and glucosamine.

  50. bluecat
    4:15 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Oh Siber-H – Kat should always be Kapitalized. T&G’s Wrotten Kats are always in Kaps.

    Howlers – please ask your mom to post the picture when she can. We really like horse/rider pictures of people we know.

    Rio – does your friend’s brother still play with science stuff? I keep thinking about his way with piggy banks. Kind of genius, actually, the way he got to your friend’s $$.

  51. Wose
    5:11 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Happy National Dog Day to all my dog pals on this here blog!

    Masquers, the Prof and I are not fans of pickles. At Rio’s request, the Prof did take a picture of this delicacy. Pictures to come….

  52. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:11 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Fake!….Thats not beer!…grunt!…Who in their right mind would drink that crap?….sniff!…I bet it smells like liver-snaps….cough!

    Gone!…I think Rose ran away in fright!…heh!heh!

    Project!…My friend is happy because she finally gets to work on her big!big!BIG! project this afternoon..sniff!… Because there is no deadline what-so-ever she says she can add tons more detail to the piece…wheeze!

    Perception!…Does anyone on this here blog watch the show called Perception? …grunt!…We are watching episode 4 right now. OnDemand has erased episodes 1 – 3 already..grumble!

  57. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:32 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Rain!…Not here, in Chicago. There was a 2 hour 23 minute rain delay for the game and now it looks like it is raining again…grump!… Why can’t it rain here? It has not rained all damned summer practically…wheeze!…My friend says Beau and I should get used to eating dust because she won’t be able to afford feeding us this winter and beyond…gasp!… Will it really come to that do you think?…sob!…I don’t want to eat dust, I really don’t…wuffle!

  58. Wose
    6:45 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Rio, I didn’t run away in fright, it was just time for dinner! Pretty kool that we posted at the same time!

    Prof and I may have to eat dust too. Went food shopping today and spent a bundle on a bunch of nothing. Plus, the Prof’s full-time contract was not renewed, so it is back to adjunct work, and an unreliable salary!

  59. Siber-H
    6:46 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Rio, I’ll send you and Beau some kibble.
    As far as eating dust goes, it is okay. I eat a lot of it in the spring here.

  60. Wose
    6:47 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Rio, maybe with a little hot sauce, dust wouldn’t be so bad.

  61. Wose
    6:48 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Rebecca, are you okay? How is your cold?

  62. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:51 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Rebecca!…I hope she hasn’t built herself into a closed off corner somewhere in that Cabin In The Woods…heh!…I bet she is fighting that darned cold….grunt!

  63. BearSpiritDog
    6:51 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Perception looks like it might be a good show, but we here can’t watch it because it’s on TNT.

    Wose: I knew it was time for dinner somewhere!

  64. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:53 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Gah!…Now Bear and I posted at the same time….yeep!

  65. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:56 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Supper!…We are having an even early supper here very soon because her mother cannot wait to eat some good green chili…snort!…That bunk she’s been making over the last year has not cut-it. Today my friend finally/i> got to make her version of smokin’ hot yet flavorful green chile…snort!…Beau and I get some burger mixed with our kibble…heh!heh!

  66. bluecat
    7:25 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Siber-H up top.

    Rose – I’m sorry about no full-time for the Prof. Mom’s good friend is in the same boat.

    We’re getting closer to AFOC send off. Yay.

  67. SnowBella
    7:32 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Im convinced AJ is the man of steel. We worked all day yesterday on the cabin and late into the night. I called it quits around 1230 this morning. Not. AJ. He worked until 3 am. We got up a few hours later and got back to work. I haven’t had time to think about or deal with my cold.

  68. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:51 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Rebecca!…This does not sound like a good way to take care of a cold…sniffle!… Please do not neglect it and it turns into something even nastier…wuffle!…AJ the Giant has practically a whole week left to finish the cabin, whats his hurry anyways?…snort!

  69. Melanie
    7:51 pm on August 26th, 2012

    That cabin will be a thing of beauty and comfort!

    Bed is calling early tonight.

    Rose!…These two here keep complaining about the cost of groceries every weekend after my friend goes and gets them…snuffle!…Seems they can’t keep their bill under a certain amount and that is ticking them off, by golly… gruffle!…Thats when she looks at us and blames us for the high price of food…grump!

  71. Beau - The Black Pug
    8:03 pm on August 26th, 2012

    Sneeze!… I jumped off of my girls lap today and hurt my back leg….snuffle!…I was trying to do a half twist with a full gainer…whatever that means … and then my leg became disjointed…gack!….It’s okay now – its back in place….sneeze!…Rio says I yelped like a big baby. I did not.

  72. Masquers

    Tonight, Tenzing was supervising our work as usual. AJ and I were in the loft are hanging drywall and snacking on beef jerky. One rung at a time,Tenzing climbed the ladder I built for his fair shar of jerky. Never would I expect to see a dog climb a ladder, but there you have it.

    Many years ago when I had Emily the Kat, or she had me, we had electricians rewiring the farm house. They had a ladder set up in the upstairs landing so they could get in the attic crawl space. They left it up when they went to lunch and when they came back Emily had climbed the ladder and was peering down at them from the crawl space. When they started up she hissed at them.
    They came down quickly and told me that a wild kat was up in the attic.
    Emily had jumped the two foot distance from the top of the ladder to the attic and then couldn’t jump down onto the tiny ladder top. I had to stand on the ladder and lift her down. Emily was not a tiny kat. Think Abbie the Kitty size. It was an adventure for both of us.

    There wasn’t even any food up there either.

    Distance!…I am really having a hard time imagining a Kat the size of AbbieTheFat jumping almost straight up 2 feet into an attic space where there is no food….wheeze!…This makes no sense at all…heh!… Tenzing at least had a goal in mind when he climbed the ladder. Kats, who knows what they are thinking?…grunt!

    AJ had to carry Tenzing down the ladder. That was an adventure for Tenzing, but didn’t phase the Giant.

    Down!…I was just thinking, “How did he get down?”…heh!…Jack and the Bean Stalk comes to mind…snort!

    I was so focused on the up that I forget to think through the down. No matter. I trust AJ with my life. He wouldn’t put me in harms way and I know it. I can be trusted to snack by his side and he knows it.

    Tenzing!…You are truly a Giants Guy and a Giant of a Guy…heh!…You are big, bigger than Beau and I stacked together…snort!…A big guy with a big heart. You are a guy only Giants could carry down a ladder, just wish there was a golden egg to go along with all that…snort!

    Tomorrow is the first day of school for Mom. I have been trying to get her to bed for hours, but I guess she will sleep when she gets good and ready.

    Nitey nite and Happy dog day to all (except Kats)
