Chetspeak on Sunday

Bernie approached a boarded-up window by the back door, ripped off the boards like nobody’s business, which made no sense to me, this sort of thing being our business exactly. Next came the window. This particular window was pretty much our favorite kind, just one pane. First Bernie tried to open it: locked. Locked was always my preference – it meant I got to see Bernie breaking the glass. Bernie was a great glass breaker – I’d seen him do it with his head! And more than once! But not tonight. Tonight we were trying to keep the noise level down. I knew that as soon as Bernie took off his shirt and wrapped it around the .38 Special. After that came a quick tap tap at the window, practically silent, and the glass broke into two pieces which fell inside and landed on something soft, making the gentlest shattering sounds I’d heard in my career so far.

Bernie glanced around – just an old habit of his, I’d have let him know if anyone was coming – then put on his shirt, picked a few shards out of the frame, and raised one foot as though to step inside. That led to a brief moment of confusion ending with us both safely through the window, me first.

Welcome fellow ear non-matchers, enthusiastic dude.

    Good morning, and Happy Egg Day, though only one of us got an egg, and that was given grudgingly. Mom and Pop are upset with us. It seems they do not like our hunting nature. Hmmm whoda thunk it.
    They tell us they had a most delish brisket dinner last night, along with good conversation, and for-real ghost stories about the very house they were in!
    Hope Nana is continuing improvement, and Melanie slept. Is Bella feeling better now that her Giant is home with her? Hugs to all under the quilt, which does not include Dima.

    Gooood morning, everyone! Ah life, Chetspeak, Egg Day and ditto OH’s to Nana, Melanie, Bella and the Giant, those under the quilt AND Dima. Oh, and tell your ‘rents that it is ok to hunt, as long as you share, like we do. We met a husky named Sasha yesterday who was swimming in the Sequatchie River!

    Hope all have a serene, serendipitous sunny Sunday!

    Happy egg day to all!!

    Wonder how Spence did yesterday ?
    Wonder if our Nana is getting better?
    The Giant and the Pixie together at the same time!
    Belle Starr, make sure you are getting your share of tummies!
    I hope our Liz from Oz is not in any danger of those fires.

    Hope all those under th quilt are gaining strength and will soon be feeling tip-top!
    TEDDY! You are back from your vacation! You have to tell all about it, and your mommy and daddy need to post some pictures. You are now 3 weeks older than when I met you!

    RIO! Hello! Who won the game!
    Siber-H, what prediction did Spence make for the WS!

    Sammie, I know you and LouLou will become thick as thieves!

    Signing off for now….

    Good morning everyone. Barb is back home where she belongs, and all is right in my world.

    Doesn’t Bernie know that Chet always goes first?

    Have not had a chance to read all the posts yet, but we are aware of what happened to Nana. Hope she is continuing to improve this morning. Our thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.

    Barb had a great time on her country get-a-way. Her friends have lived all over the place during his 20 years in the Navy. Steve is now retired from the military, but still works p.t. for Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. They bought a 100 acre place in Kentucky, and it is a little piece of heaven. They have Red Angus cows and a big scary looking Black Angus bull named Ace. They also have about 40 Kahtadian sheep. All the animals graze in big grassy fields and it was wonderful to see. Their two dogs, Katie and Pippa, live the life that dogs were meant to live.

    B&M: Tell Barb we all missed her but are glad she had a good time. We are even gladder that you, Maggie, have everything (everyone) in the right place 🙂

    O’Howlers, tell me more about your hunting activities.

  9. Melanie, Improving
    10:29 am on October 20th, 2013

    Ditto to all the good thoughts, except to me, because I know that I slept!

    I have been on my walk. Only two miles this week. People that say “No Side Effects” are lying.

    Has any one tried Acorn TV?

    Chet, the Pack is with you on going first. Though it is a bit more of a scramble, because five are trying to go first!

    Zoë is having a rest day.

  10. Melanie, Improving
    10:30 am on October 20th, 2013

    MagPie I looked up Kahtadian sheep. Cute and don’t resemble MGs.

  11. Melanie, Improving
    10:36 am on October 20th, 2013

    One more thing. I always have trouble with my scarves. Either they don’t stayed tied or they strangle me.

    I found this and I can do far this morning I have not strangled myself and my neck is warm.

  12. Melanie, Improving
    10:37 am on October 20th, 2013

    All I need is a longer scarf!

  13. Barb & Maggie
    10:45 am on October 20th, 2013

    Melanie, Kahtadian sheep are called hair sheep. They don’t grow a usable wool, but instead have a short hair that mats and falls off once a year. They are from a desert climate, so they do well in the south.

    Steve is very softhearted. He had to send his young ram lambs to market last Thursday, and he was really struggling with his attachment to one young male that he had bottle fed. As he was rounding them up and putting them in the trailer, he decided he needed a “flock whether” that would make it easier to call the sheep in. Since this little guy comes when he calls him, he is taking him to the vet to get him neutered, and then he can keep him with the ewes.

  14. O'Howlers
    11:01 am on October 20th, 2013

    Melanie, Mom never wears scarves, because she doesn’t have a clue how to tie them, so she is very grateful for that picture. Now she needs to find a scarf.

    Barb, We would love your friend’s farm. It sounds wonderful. We still don’t have eggs-layers here. Our chicks are exactly 4 1/2 months old today, so probably another couple of weeks. Then again, maybe by then it will be too cold and dark?
    Now Pop is talking about goats. Seriously????

    Sam, You really don’t want to hear…and mom will get mad at us if we brag.

    Around here, we Howlers always go thru doors first! Two-leggers know enough to get out of our way.

  15. Barb & Maggie
    11:03 am on October 20th, 2013

    Just read the prayer for Barb. Thank you Amalia and Leonard, and Amen.

  16. Herd of Hounds
    11:13 am on October 20th, 2013

    We are enjoying the farm and animal descriptions. Of course we of the nation within go first! Silly 2 leggers to think otherwise. Our mom learned that the hard way, maybe more than once. She wound up with a torn meniscus so now she stands aside.

  17. Barb & Maggie
    11:21 am on October 20th, 2013

    Melanie, Thank you for the scarf step-by-step. Barb is definitely going to try that. She has scarves but never knows what to do with them.

    Oleys, Cold weather doesn’t seem to affect the egg laying, but shorter hours of daylight does. The Americauna doesn’t lay as much in the winter, but the others still lay. You can put a light in the coop to give you 14-16 hours of daylight, but we never did that. We just went with their natural cycle. Barb’s 6 years old hens are still laying, just not as much. Barb thinks they wear out sooner if they lay year round.

    11:23 am on October 20th, 2013

    Wose, lol I was going to ask the same question on the blog today. What teams did Spence pick to get to the World Series? I told myself at the time he made those picks that I would remember, but, duh, I don’t remember.
    That was some baseball game last night with the Grand Slam home run. Spence’s Red Sox are going to the World Series!!

    Melanie, people don’t wear scarves in this part of the country. If they did, mom wouldn’t have a clue how to tie them.
    We have never heard of Acorn TV. Is it tv for squirrels?

  19. Siber-H
    11:32 am on October 20th, 2013

    Barb, Welcome back to the blog and glad you had a good time.

    Mom talked to two friends of hers about the Anne Hillerman book. These are the same friends that got her started on Tony’s books years ago. They have both read Anne’s book and say it measures up to Tony’s. They liked the book.

  20. Wolfie Wigglebutt

    Spence picked the Nats over the Rays.

    We are home, home, home. Mom hasn’t had a chance to download the photos yet (and Dad is clueless in that regard) but hopefully later today we can post some. I am getting good at long car rides and didn’t raise even a little fuss. Vermont was just great though, and I will miss it, even though I am now ready for some longer walks here in Chevy Chase (took one this monring in Rock Creek Park). I’m also working on some small construction projects in the back yard (channeling my inner SiberH). Simillarly, my mom and dad think my puppy food is good for me although it does give me a fair amount of gas (which they describe as channeling my inner Commander Rio). Also, to reward me for my good behavior, Mom and Dad got me some Yummy Chummies which are absolutely delish.

  23. Barb & Maggie
    12:32 pm on October 20th, 2013

    Siber, The library called and they have the new Hillerman book on hold for us. Right now Barb is reading the ne Donna Andrews book, The Hen of the Baskervilles. Melanie introduced Barb to the Meg Langslow series a couple of years ago and they are fun to read.

    Oleys, you will get a chuckle from this – She mentions Russian Orloff banties and Lemon Millefleur Sablepoots in the book. Barb thought she was just making up those names for breeds of chickens, but, by golly, they are real. The Sablepoot looks very similar to the Millefleurs that we had, but apparently, they are an English breed.

    12:34 pm on October 20th, 2013

    SiberH: FOFL (fall on floor laughing)…acorn tv for squirrels! tried to post 30 min. ago but it said I was posting too fast (as if that were possible!)

  25. Herd of Hounds
    12:37 pm on October 20th, 2013

    B&M: A Sablepoot sounds scary. Does that mean it released a dark cloud when it channels its inner Rio?

  26. Barb & Maggie
    12:46 pm on October 20th, 2013

    HOH, A Sablepoot does not look very scary to us, more like small, cute and friendly.

    We were accused of posting too fast too. Must be a problem. That has happened before, maybe once or twice that we remember.

    In this new Andrews book she is also talking about heritage animals and heirloom seeds. Barb can relate!

  27. Siber-H
    12:51 pm on October 20th, 2013

    HOH Over the years, the blog has occassionaly told me I was posting too fast or I posted a duplicate comment. The blog did let me go ahead and post my comment after it told me these things.

    The blog may be having some problems this morning…for about 30 minutes it wouldn’t refresh or open for me. Problems always happen on Sundays or holidays.

  28. BooBear
    12:56 pm on October 20th, 2013

    O’Howlers, please tell us that your hunting did Not involve a cat!

  29. Herd of Hounds
    1:02 pm on October 20th, 2013

    Siber H and B&M: Thanks ya’ll. For a while we felt like the Lone Stranger and his 4 trusty side kicks (Huey, Louie, Dewey and Gooey).
    BooBear: We are certain the OH only hunt rodents, wild yucky things and wild birds! That’s what we do (heh, heh).

    This is Barbara’s son Scott. She has been slowly getting better. She started off with a blood sugar level of over 1000 and now it is under control at 100. Last night Wes (my brother) asked her to lift her arms and she lifted them high like victory. Although she is still on life support she responds well. Thank you for your prayers.

  31. Herd of Hounds
    1:11 pm on October 20th, 2013

    Wow, wow, wow! Barb’s son Scott posted on the blog! Great news 🙂 You go girl, keep up the hard work.

    Hooray for Chetspeak! When will Bernie learn that Chet goes first through doorways and windows?

    I tried to get on the blog earlier but the little circle kept going around and around with nothing happening.

    Welcome back Barb! What a nice getaway.

    Melanie slept and Dima is eating, both good news.

    Rio: I could not post last night because I was recording the baseball game and didn’t want to read any spoilers. The grand slam (another one!) spoiled everything but I learned who Papi (OTAS’s dog) is named after (Ortiz – the one that hit the first grand slam) and I will be rooting for the Red Sox over the Red Birds.

    I am still worried about Snowbella because I haven’t heard that she is tip-top.

    Masquers: Hope you are safe and your lady finds something to smile about today.

    TeddyRR: I’m not sure you have picked the best role models to channel but hopefully you will grow out of any bad habits.

    One more sunny warm(ish) day so I will be outside enjoying the fine weather.

    BearSpiritDog: Wonderful news and thanks to Scott for keeping us posted. Not everyone would talk to a bunch of dogs and kats. Nana, you keep getting better. We are all with you, praying recovery prayers.

  37. Herd of Hounds
    1:23 pm on October 20th, 2013

    B&M: Mom looked up the L.M.Sablepoot chickies. You are right, they don’t look scary. We think they look like walking pillows. Pardon us for a short while we go twirl with the news about Nana. P.S. Thank you, Scott (see, we can be ladies).

  38. SnowBella
    1:26 pm on October 20th, 2013

  39. Siber-H
    1:36 pm on October 20th, 2013

    3:20 pm on October 20th, 2013

    Reporting in, but nothing to report. My MRI brain scan is tomorrow and then the results maybe on Tuesday.

    Loulou and I just got back from playing with Sam.

    Here’s Loulou looking all innocent because I caught her chewing on the chair leg. My Louis XV chairs are 25 years old and the legs have been chewed on by other dogs too. A few teeth marks give the chairs character, so I don’t fuss when it happens.

  49. Wolfie Wigglebutt

    3:57 pm on October 20th, 2013

    Wolfie” A great idea but we cannot stretch our paws far enough into that blasted box to reach and we are all a bit to big to wiggle through (something about getting stuck). Mom says not to worry, if it comes back here, she’ll put it in another envelope and try, try again!

    I think that LizF. lives in or near Brisbane, which would be on the other side of the island from where the fires are. I could be wrong.

    Thank you Scott, for the update. We here on the blog love her very much.

    Siber-H, Acorn TV. You made me laugh so hard I snorted diet soda through my nose.

    Melanie, I wear scarves right about this time of year. Thanks for that picture. Now I can tie my scarves 2 ways. Two is a good number!

    Teddy, those are some great photos! I will try and send the ones Grizz took back to you.

    MPM, LouLou is adorable!

    Pancho & Lefty, I was thinking about youse guys early this morning. You have been labeled as Snowhook’s resident thieves. I would call you “procurement specialists.”

    I just saw on the News people in Salt Lake City took to the water in giant pumpkins fashioned into kayaks. Yeep!

  72. O'Howlers
    7:12 pm on October 20th, 2013

    Teddy – thanks for the pics.

    Did you all notice Mama’s Golden Retriever colored pants? She usually wears black pants when she visits the Pack, but somehow, they still somehow show their “I love dogs who drool” attitude.

    Oh dear – we have many rabid Red Sox fans in the area. This means WAY too much information about them in the days to come.

    T&G More bad news. I think most of us here on the blog will be cheering for the Red Sox in the World Series.

    You two Corgies and the Herbs need to give in and get with the program and cheer for the Red Sox. You live in the same state as Boston and I am way out here in no man’s land cheering for the Red Sox.

    Beau, The Kansas City Chiefs won their football game this afternoon against the Texans, but only by one point. The Texans did good.

    The Broncos do need to win their game tonight.

  77. Barb & Maggie
    7:45 pm on October 20th, 2013

    Love all the photos. Teddy is growing up so fast! Grizz and Rose and A & L look great too.

    Barb is going to try to put some trip pics on the blog tomorrow. Too tired to attempt it tonight. This afternoon Barb painted half the fence that is on the one side of our yard. Hopefully we will have one more nice day so she can finish.

  78. Tupper and Gilly
    7:47 pm on October 20th, 2013

    Siber – they were talking on the news tonight about the millions of dollars worth of Red Sox t-shirts, hats, pennants, etc were sold today.
    We will make a deal with you – when those silly boys playing a child’s game decide to donate every penny of the proceeds of those sales to charity – then we will be in the stands cheering our hearts out for them.

    Until then, we continue to say “Baseball?..bah, humbug!”

  79. Melanie: chuckling
    7:59 pm on October 20th, 2013

    My guys are very excited about the World Series for some reason. snicker

    Teddy RR. You are a handsome dude.

    Barb and MagPie. I do love that series. With that book and all its mentions of the heritage breeds of all sorts of animals, I enjoyed reading it on my iPaw. I would highlight one of the breeds and then hit “google”. Poof, there on the iPaw would be pictures of the breed. Awesome. I love the birds, can’t remember what they were called, but they looked like black and white stained glass and the shiny black ones.

    Also about Acorn TV. It’s streaming on demand, commercial-free, and (they say) The Best of British TV. I will be trying the 30 day free trial tomorrow. When I can think.

    Headed up the stairs.

    I had problems posting this morning also. I had something very important to post which I have now forgotten completely. sigh.

    I had to drive up to Grand Forks through the first snowfall of the season this morning. It was pretty much rain by the time I got started. I had to pick up the Plunder Quilt so I can mail it to Dawson (who has been waiting patiently).

    It got an award! They had people in the community choose their favorite quilt in the show. The person who chose ours was a Leukemia survivor, animal lover and Larimore (North Dakota) Elementary School fifth grader. I will send the paper to Dawson with the quilt so she can be extra proud of it.

    Nana is getting better. Oh My Dog that is great news. Thanks so much to Scott for posting that news.

    Teddy is getting big. And his portrait is wonderful! He is just a big ol’ cutie. And it is wonderful to see pictures of his Plunder friends also.

    Our lady is back out on the road again and will be away all week. She did not put us in charge. We are just as surprised as all youse are.

    We wonder if Scott reads our comments to Nana so she knows how much we care.

    10:41 pm on October 20th, 2013

    Rio: We threatened to grab her by the pant leg, but she insisted she is feeling well enough to travel. She isn’t tip-top, this much we know but she was able to catch up on some sleep this weekend. She did find out some exciting news on Friday. Her boss announced she has the most billable hours in fiscal year 2014. That has been one of her goals. Wheeze!

  103. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:51 pm on October 20th, 2013

    Billable!…Yeah, but this is still 2013, so what’s up with that?…grunt!

  104. Pancho & Lefty
    10:54 pm on October 20th, 2013

    Rio: Their fiscal year starts in June. What does all this mean?—we have no idea. What we do know is we love our Lady and she loves us. That is good enough for us. We have no fiscal year.

  105. Riö - The Evil Pug

    I don’t understand how the Broncos can just fall apart like they are doing tonight. This game gets worser and worser.

    Ok – now we are really lost. We thought it was the end of &(;}€<~} baseball season with the World Series. But then people are cheering for the Broncos, who we KNOW are football players. And Rebecca is out on the ice scoring goals. So what's with the tidal wave? Are we surfing?

    Oh well,
