Coming Jan. 19: Robbie Forester and the Outlaws of Sherwood Street

This city was full of dogs cooped up all day who couldn’t wait to get outside. Pendleton wasn’t like that. He preferred the indoors, only wanting to go out when he was desperate, and he was capable of holding on for amazing amounts of time. I took the leash off the door, hooked it to his collar.


Pendleton didn’t move, just lay there on his side, tongue hanging out a bit, eyes vacant. I tugged on the leash, couldn’t budge him. “All right, all right—you can have a treat.”

He bounced up—maybe not bounced, but he did rise of his own accord—and hurried into the kitchen, stopping in front of the broom closet, where his treats were kept. Pendleton had proved over and over that he knew some words—outside, walk, come, no, and bad, forexample—but treat was the word he knew best. I took a box of biscuits, giant size, from the cupboard, and rattled it in front of his face. Now he was mine. I stuck a biscuit, just one, in my jacket pocket, collected a baggie and the scooper. He trotted after me to the door—his trot was clumsy and shambling, with a lot of side-to-side motion—down the stairs to the outside door and onto the street.

    Good morning, Everybody. Rio – sorry about the game. The Pats have been known to mess with the Indy Colts, too.

    Dad’s surgery went well and his recovery appears to be on schedule. We’re official Lurkers for now, but please know our hearts are with each of you.

    I promise you’ll really enjoy reading about Robbie – soon! 🙂

    Thank you BlueCat…we most certainly did!
    Time for Sunday Brunch
    Good Morning All

    HELLLOOOOO BlueKate! Glad to hear that your Dad’s surgery went well! Good.

    Riö, sorry about the game (snicker) and I’m glad you went outside to piss.
    Siber-H, how many holes were dug last night?
    Wölfie, Dan the man, was a ‘hurry up and wait” guy. Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go and then he’d get into a conversation with someone and it would be 30 to 45 minutes later that we’d leave.

    I didn’t get frozen out last night, but only because I decided to not do the Puppy Pee and Poo Parade. TOO COLD! The Pack was on their own!

    Last night -5 degrees. Now? -4 degrees windchill factor of -20. Zoë got frozen out again. She did everything right. One of the Pack knocked the door just right and it shut on her.

    Today? Working for YSAS, keeping warm, watching the Pack try to figure out why we won’t go out in this wonderful weather.

    Bluecat: Very happy to hear all is okay with your dad. Thank you for letting us know.
    A very light dusting of…could that be snow? Now much, but that’s okay. I prefer to be able to walk, not plow my way up the driveway.
    Sorry about the game last night Broncos fans, but the Pats certainly deserved to win. Some mighty fine plays by the Patriots.
    Melanie: Sounds pretty darn Brrrry your way. Stay warm!

    Pendleton shambles!

    Bluecat: Hoorah! for a successful surgery and recovery.

    Welcome back to Kirby and G’day to Liz.

    Melanie: I’ll be thinking positive thoughts for our trio of soon-to-be-extremely-successful actors.

    I almost called in sick, but the kink in my hip joint seems to have worked it’s way out. (whine)(sigh)

    Dawson- anyone who works 12 hour shifts (and is forced to watch football in the bargain) is entitled to whine!

    BlueCat – great news. Your dad remains in all our prayers.

    Melanie – you need a vacation down south. It is a balmy, sunwashed 20 degrees here. Come on down tee hee

    We are celebrating our Dad’s birthday today since Mama has to work late at CLL on Tuesday, the real date. (whispering – but we are taking him out for sushi later that night). In our house the birthday person gets to pick the menu or the restaurant. Dad is having escargot, followed by grilled lamb chops, asparagus polonaise, baked taters and salad. His birthday cake is a tiramisu torte (purchased).

    So, until it’s time to cook, we are off to play with clay for the day.

    Good morning all. Cold here but no wind which is nice.

    Watched about 10 minutes of the game last night, but caught that horrific fight. Wow, those guys really got into it!

    Read Alice’s post last night, and no I did not remember giving Staff our #. Now she has it and so does Bee. That should be good ’nuff.

    Bluecat, glad surgery went well.

    Dawson, take it easy today.

    Still need to get a mailing address from G & B.

    We here have read Robbie, but plan to buy a copy so Baye, 12 1/2, can read it. Bro and wife sent 11-22-63 to Barb for Christmas, but she had already read it. The darn thing weighs 4-5 lbs, which was probably half of the $27.30 of postage SIL spent to mail gifts. They were not happy that she had already read it, but what can we do! Barb is going to take it to B & N and exchange it. Robbie wil be one of the books she buys.

    A chilly good morning to all,
    We had practically no winter until this week. I think it’s playing catch up. When I went out for my first walk this morning, I stepped into about 5 inches of fresh snow and the temperature was a minus 5. I think I like this weather a lot more than my dad. We didn’t walk any farther than was necessary for me to take care of things and then it was back into the house. We’ll spend a couple of hours doing the two big crossword puzzles from the Sunday paper before we get into anything more serious. The big project for today will be printing cards to restock the rack at Blou’s store in Ellicottville.
    It’s time for Valentine and all occasion cards. We did well with the holiday cards, but
    it’s time to yank them now.

    11:17 am on January 15th, 2012

    I pre-ordered the book!

    Bluecat, Thanks for letting us know that all is well with your dad…very good news!

    Melanie…Too many holes were dug last night and too many chew strips gone through, but it is onward for the Patriots.

    TYB is having nice weather now.

  11. B.Stover
    11:21 am on January 15th, 2012

    I’ll be sending Bluecat’s copy of Robbie to Wolfie this week. (It’s lots of fun! I already have my copy ordered through Amazon.)

    Barb: I received your email and info.

    It’s bright and sunny here but is only 21, 14 wind chill. We have about two inches of snow from yesterday.

    Good morning all.

    Tupper & GillyMonster – I know you meant to invite me to your Dad’s birthday dinner so I’ll be right over. Yum. I can’t wait.

    11:45 am on January 15th, 2012

    T & G: don’t lose time when you are playing with clay!

    Zoë has taken Mac to the groomer! His coat gets to the level of explosion and it’s time to do something!

    Just updated my iPhoto to iPhoto 11. Nice. It will be easier for Zoe to post photos on Facebook.

    Listening to “Nearer My God to Me” by the Piano Guys. Doing a lot of there videos as I work.

  14. Tyb

    I’ve pre-ordered the book.

    11:48 am on January 15th, 2012

    Happy Sunday! It is finally winter here as well. It was snowing heavy when Pop left for work at 3:00 a.m., but we only ended up with a beautiful dusting. But it was 13 this morning, with a wind chill of 0. Even now, the wind chill is ~10. That’s our kind of weather, but crazy Mom still doesn’t want us outside all day. She says the Pipsqueak doesn’t yet have her winter coat. Go figure.

    Bluecat, we are ecstatic that your Dad’s surgery went well and we will continue to keep him in our thoughts as he recovers.

    This morning, Mom baked bread AND made rasberry crepes! The cold weather does nice things for her domestic endeavers.

  16. Barb & Maggie
    11:51 am on January 15th, 2012

    T & G, that menu sound fabulous! The sushi not so much. Could do some as an appey, but for the most part like fish better cooked.

    Barb was going to go to the store, but decided to put if off till tomorrow when she has to be out any way. She is working half day tomorrow, so that won’t bee too bad on the stress level.

    Tonight we have Golden Globes and Downton Abbey. Good night for tv!

    Greetings All!

    Sorry about the game, Rio. I really did want the Pats to get Tebowed, but in all fairness the Pats are a good team. Loved the photo of your friend’s new project in progess.

    Bluecat, I am so happy to hear about your pop! I continue to send good wishes for a speedy recovery!

    T&G: Early happy birthday to your dad!

    OH: Any raspberry crepes left???

  18. Barb & Maggie
    12:34 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Oley, Are you cooking your chicken today? If so, what are your plans for it?

  19. Gus & BooBear
    12:41 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Maggie, tell your mom to check her email in just a little while and mom will send her the address. Since our emergency info isn’t on anyone’s list, she will include her phone # so someone has it. Can’t wait to get the book. Mom has to hurry up and finish her current read.

    Rio, We were hoping the Bronco’s would pull through. Brady just had an amazing night. But Tebow’s time is coming. He’s already proved alot of the critics wrong and he can play in the pro’s. It’s a shame that he is ridiculed for standing strong in his religious beliefs. Don’t believe he deserves that. He is just being true to himself.

    Today is our turn. 1st time the Texans have ever been in the playoffs…and with a 3rd string quarterback! It really is fun. Being the underdog every week helps, we think. At least we don’t get overconfident.

    Bluecat, yea for your Dad!! Keep lurking, but also keep up updated on his project. Lots of us have either been there or had close loved ones who went through it.

    Go Texans!!!!!!!!!!

    12:56 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Good afternoon, y’all! Mom’s home from church, but now Mom and Dad and my girl are getting ready to go to a women’s basketball game at USC. My girl’s not real happy about seeing her rival’s team, but Mom and Dad told her she can wear blue and root for the other guys! It should be a good game since both teams are ranked.

    I’ve been reading about all of youse complaining about your weather. Where we live it’s real, real cold out today. The high is only supposed to be 52 degrees! That makes it hard for me to go out to do my thing, if you get my drift. Luckily it’s supposed to be back up to 74 degrees next Sunday!

  22. Kirby T. Penworthy
    12:57 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Rebecca: Speaking of weather, at Christmas Mom gave Dad the extra booties you sent when we won the Iditarod booties auction. How the heck do your dogs wear those things?! Dad put them on me and I had a fit! Dad finally put them on Maggie (one of Those Girls). She was willing to wear them, but they sure made her walk funny. I even felt a little sorry for her because everyone was laughing!

  23. B.Stover
    1:04 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Bluecat: Are you able to be with your dad?

    Happy birthday to T&G’s dad.

    So…dinner at T&G’s and then to the Howlers for crepes?

  24. BearSpiritDog
    1:17 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Kirby: My pal Koha, the black lab, and Buddy, the dachshund used to wear those little botties. Somehow Koha’s always seemed to come off. After this happened for the umpteenth time, his mom finally gave up.

    O.Howlers: I’ve had brunch, but I could find room for those yummy raspberry crepes. Save some for me, I’ll be right over.

    Tupper&Gilly: Your dad’s B-Day dinner choices sound interesting. He’s a gourmet all the way.

    We missed the fight last night. What was that all about?

  25. BearSpiritDog
    1:53 pm on January 15th, 2012

    B: That chicken dinner with the mashed potatoes and gravy you described last night had some of us drooling with just the thought of it.
    Liz: We usually roast our chicken like you do, with butter only.
    Once when Nana had had a particularly delicious chicken at a Chinese Restaurant, she asked them how it had been prepared. Amazingly, baked with only salt and pepper.
    Wonder what wonderful smells are coming from Jasper’s kitchen today. Food on my mind as usual. Good thing we can’t gain weight just by thinking about it.

  26. OleyHowlers
    2:04 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Sorry, Guys. Mom made enough rasberry crepes for 4, then proceeded to eat half while Pop ate the other half! Did we tell you those rasberries were bought from a nearby family-run organic farm during the summer, and then vaccium-sealed and frozen? Delich.

    Happy Birthday to T&G’s dad. His dinner sounds wonderful, and now Mom is feeling doubly bad for eating all those crepes.

    Kirby, we are very glad you’re back but we think your weather is way too warm and boring for us huskies.

    We just watched the pilot episode for The Firm. Youse were so right. We LOVE that show. Now we have to look for the 2nd episode somewhere.

    Time for homemade frozen tomato soup! BBL

    Bluecat; great hearing from you especially since you had good news.

    Went to store again today. It is a bad sign watching the temperature reading in the car drop and then when it hit -40 it started flickering and finally just read dashes (–) rather than a temperature reading. Perhaps too cold to register? If so, I don’t want to know. It hurt to breathe which was another bag sign. I left the car running when I went inside the store and I never do that.

    2:39 pm on January 15th, 2012

    BSD: You mean that maybe I shouldn’t have done that thing to her bunny boots to show my upset feelings? Uh, oh. I need to make find some duct tape quick. Carpola! Wait. What am I worried about?—I’m adorable. She can’t stay mad at me.

  31. Snowhook Bella
    2:43 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Charris: I have a layer of my mushing gear on inside the house and a fire blazing. AJ put on all his mushing layers to do dog chores this morning. Last night was a “Little House on the Prarie” night—we slept with our winter hats on.

    Bluecat: I’m sending thoughts of health and healing to your family. Lurk away.

    I wonder if I can download Robbie to my fancy IPaw?

  32. Masquers
    2:57 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Howlers: The newest episode of The Firm aired last Thursday night, Jan. 12th. You can find info by going to:
    It is also on facebookie.
    Today it’s Rodgers vs Manning as the Green Bay Packers tackle the New York Giants. Game-time here on the West Coast…1:30 pm.
    Still sorry to hear some of youse missed that most memorable Saints/49ers game last night. Better than watching our poor Broncos get trounced.

  33. OleyHowlers
    3:34 pm on January 15th, 2012

    We found it on Amazon. Tried NBC but for some reason our laptop sound wasn’t working.

    The Copper Basin 300 was cancelled 75 miles into the race due to heavy snow and high winds. We are very glad A.J. Wasn’t doing that one.

  34. Gus & BooBear
    3:53 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Not looking good for the Texans right now

  35. Snowhook Bella
    4:03 pm on January 15th, 2012

    KirbyT: There may have been a bit of laughter the first time I put booties on Tenzing, my first sled dog. Once they become accustomed to them, the humor is lost.

    Howlers: We were just saying that we were glad we hadn’t decided to run the CB300. Two weeks until AJ’s next race. He is giving the dogs a rest today, but will hit the trail again tomorrow.

  36. Masquers
    4:07 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Howlers: How did you get The Firm on Amazon? I don’t see it.

    Robbie!…. Pendleton sounds like my kind of guy!…heh!heh!…I truly can’t wait to read more about him and Robbie. I know someone here has pre-ordered the book…snorkel!

    Round-Two!….Now that everyone is home and sort of recovered from last nights tromping ((((sigh)))) we are downstairs getting ready to watch The Packers vs The Jets!….Woooooo!… Just so youse guys know, we are rooting for The Packers today. Some good friends of ours are Cheese-heads so we are sticking with them…heh!heh!….And besides, I think cheese is Beau’s favorite food in the whole wide world…grunt!…That guy can smell cheese still in the wrapper even when he’s down here with us…snort!….You should see him make a bee-line for that stuff…chorkel!

    Game!….Is getting ready to start!….Wooooooo!

    4:40 pm on January 15th, 2012

    G & B We got your mailing info and Barb is recording your phone # for emergency purposes.

    All that talk about food, that is what cold weather weekends are about. Barb made a beef brisket last night and has some left for tonight and then sandwiches. Slow cooked, cooled and sliced. Yum!

    4:45 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Hey all! How’s youse guise doin’? I’m tip top! Mom’s almost feeling tip top too (bark that three times fast). We’re just hangin’ out here in the middle of the mitten, takin’ naps and layin’ low.

    Heard that Rio was up to some shenanegans, and you know that my mom knows all about shenanegans. She got photo proof of that evil pug up to no good. You can run, but you can’t hide. Explain yourself bub.

    Things start out all sweet and innocent…

  41. Jasper the Poodle
    4:47 pm on January 15th, 2012

    But then (hide your pups eyes) the truth emerges.

  42. Jasper the Poodle

    Shocking! I know, just horrifcally shocking!

    But wait, there’s more…

  43. Jasper the Poodle
    4:50 pm on January 15th, 2012

    So heartbreaking! So demeaning.

  44. Jasper the Poodle

    Bluecat. That is great news about your dad. Good wishes for his continued successful recovery.
    We are rooting for the Giants here. It was mom’s father’s favorite team and we know that he is rooting hard for his Giants in heaven. I never knew him because he died before I was born, but I know we would have gotten along terrifically well.
    Rio, sorry about last night, I was rooting for the Broncos also. However, they did have a terrific year, much better than anyone had expected. And there is always next year.

  46. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:54 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Masquers, The Firm is available on Amazon HD T.V. Series, but we had to pay for the episode. Once again, we found Prime to be useless.

  49. Alice M. Johnson
    5:04 pm on January 15th, 2012

    I went and got my hairs cut on Friday and the hairdresser told me that she saw this great show called Person of Interest on TV. I told her I was a ‘friend’ of the mother of an actor on the show and then proceeded to say she had to watch for a guy going by on a bicycle.

    Gee I think she was not as impressed as I hoped.

    5:29 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Gymnastics!….Wow! One of the Packers just did a somersault over a Jet for a touchdown…heh!heh!…Then he dove into the fans in the stands who happen to be Cheese heads…wooooo! ….They patted him all over and gave him some good tummies…snorkel!

  54. dawson
    5:44 pm on January 15th, 2012

    That pug looks anorexic compared to Rio’s manly bulk. Or is that what pugs are supposed to look like?

  55. Masquers
    5:44 pm on January 15th, 2012

    T.C. I know just what you mean. Amazon has vowed to upgrade their Prime shows, but so far nada. They are actually “treating” us to the very first episode of 24 for FREE! There are some good ones, like Season One of Downton Abbey, but we think Netflix Streaming offers a greater variety. We saw 2 seasons of Damages, 3 of Mad Men and 3 of Breaking Bad there.

    G&BB: Things are not looking good down your way…game-wise.

    Hmm…that does look an awful lot like Abbie, Rio.

  56. Masquers

  59. B.Stover
    6:29 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Is anyone watching Downton Abbey tonight? I saw season one but didn’t watch last week so I’m catching up tonight. They are showing the first episode before the new one.

  60. B.Stover
    6:37 pm on January 15th, 2012

    I can get The Firm pilot episode on amazon for $1.99 which is what they always charge. Of course, I have it On Demand so will watch it there.

  61. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    6:41 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Stover. We did watch it last week and it was excellent. You will really enjoy it. And tonight’s episode looks to be even better. Wookie

  62. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:42 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Globes!….We here will be watching the Golden Globes to see if our favorite shows and actors win more fame and glory…sniff!… Although, she does have disc 3 of Downton Abbie fired up and ready to watch in the DVD player…heh!

    Packers!…I sure hope these Packers do not go the way of The Broncos…yeep!

  63. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    6:45 pm on January 15th, 2012

    You can borrow (certain) books for free with Amazon Prime but only if you own a kindle. I have a kindle ap on my ipaw so I may cancel. Rats!

  64. Masquers
    6:47 pm on January 15th, 2012

    B: No cable here, thus no On Demand, so will continue to watch The Firm online. I have not had a chance to catch up on Downton Abbey.
    Wonder if the new show Alcatraz will be any good.

    Rio: Great touchdown, unfortunately made by the wrong team.

  65. Melanie
    7:06 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Bella, Dan has the Kindle app on his iPaw. So he can read Spencer and Peter’s books that way. i don’t know if it works because Zoë has a Kindle and it’s on her account or what.

    Got a lot done today. Trying to keep my eyes open. I can see the TV from here but It’s too far way for me to see how is ahead.

    What fight last night? Did Riö get into trouble (again)?

    (Abbie, you have good taste.)

  66. Rose
    7:25 pm on January 15th, 2012

    Dog, I’m headed up. This is ridiculous. C.Harris and Bella, how do you keep up your energy in the cold?????

    Unlike a certain two Corgis 25 miles away, down the hill, it never got above 8 degrees today. It’s 5 now and the wind is blowing. Or that could be the Pack snoring hard to tell.

    Mac looks great, like a giant fuzz ball. The groomer came with Mac to put him in the Element and Patsy wouldn’t even LOOK at her. Now I know where Franklin gets his ability to disappear. She only became visible when I said treat.

    FOTAS dragged OTAS to the store and they BOUGHT a SUIT! Wedding attire taken care of for the groom and his men! Three piece black pin stripe.

    YSAS goes up to CT tomorrow to film in that movie that was postponed back in November.

    Alice, you should have showed her YSAS picture! lol

    Well, nite all. It’s cold and I have to make my bed up. Which means I have to convince Patsy to get off the bed so I can put the clean sheets and cover on it, then cover it up with my old car blanket so she can go back to sleep.

    goodnight Rio,
    We don’t watch TV much so we don’t watch any award shows. At least Staff and the kats don’t. Mr.Staff is watching but so far he has not made any reports.

    I have been playing Bejeweled for a while and now I am going to sew a little. Or iron. something quilting related at any rate. This is what I am working on now.

    Abbie is wondering how she can test a vertical quilt…

    Back from watching the latest episode of The Firm and some highlights of the Golden Globes.
    Staff: Seems to me Abbie is admiring your handy-work, as we all are.
    Turning in here to catch up on some reading.

    We agree with Rio (if he is still out there). Ricky does seem a little toned down this year, but we find him more entertaining. Also liked the Bieber jokes. Got to go watch the end of it.

    Sweet dreams for now.

    Burr! AJ needs to head to town to get some supplies for the dogs but the car won’t start even thought it was plugged in.

    I’ve been doing my equivalent of playing with clay today. Writing—not expert Spencer Quinn writing, but amateur writing. In November, I connected wihth a former co-worker who I hadn’t seen in quite some time. Through the course of catching up, I mentioned my somewhat secret goal of writing. He shared with me that he had started writing short stories and poetry. At the end of our conversation, we decided to email each other some of our writing and meet periodically to provide feedback. We had our second meeting on Friday and I came away with ideas swimming in my head. He said to kill my inner editor—AJ rolled his eyes and said, “I believe I said that long ago.”

    I need to bring more firewood in for the night…
