    Good morning, friends. Today’s google doodle is fun!

    Wish I could go to the discussion.

    Good morning all.

    BooBear: I think today’s GOOGLE doodle is fun too! It is in keeping with Staff’s nature365 posts…

    HRH,B: What you said.

    Shaping up to be a busy summer for OFA. Noticed that Hank P. Ryan is on the panel. I love her books. Wonder if she has a new one out? Will have to check it out.

    I am starting to get over the shock of Monday. I have to realize that Lucy was past the average life expectancy for a Basset and that anything that took her down that fast was not going to be fixable. I am glad that she was able to spend her last day lying around, basking in the sun, as only an old dog could. Feel better that I was not at work that day.

    I think What You See is her new one. Fourth in the Jane Ryland series, I believe.

    One day at a time. You gave Angel Lucy the greatest gifts she could ever want—a forever home and unconditional love.

    Hugs to you.

    Barb – hugs. And more hugs.

    And chocolate.

  8. Barb, Maggie and Angel Lucy
    11:18 am on June 9th, 2016

    Chocolate with salted peanuts! Although I have to say that I have not had any ice cream for over a year. Chocolate sauce and salted red peanuts on a scoop of vanilla would be heavenly!

    11:29 am on June 9th, 2016

    BM&AL: we can make that happen. Hell, we will dip into the Giant’s personal ice cream stash.

  10. Barb, Maggie and Angel Lucy
    11:54 am on June 9th, 2016

    Oh Thieves, I don’t want to deprive The Giant! He needs it more than I do.

  11. Thieves!
    12:01 pm on June 9th, 2016

    The Giant must have radar for his ice cream. Not long after our last post we got a text from the Giant on the glacier saying to back away from his ice cream and no one gets in a very bad mood. Yeep!

    Luna gave our go-phone the hey-we-do-for-family-look. The Giant must have sensed the look because he followed up with another text: Tell Barb to enjoy. It’s a 2016 vintage—a very good year for frozen dairy.

    Today is day 2 at Barb’s busy place. Storyteller, make note—whiteout should not be used to get marshmallows unstuck from one’s braids or fur. On an unrelated note, sticky notes should not be used to get whiteout off of one’s braids or fur. There is so much to learn at the busy place. Barb must be a real pro. As far as we can tell, she doesn’t have any whiteout or sticky notes in thee hair.

    Whiteout is for mistakes, right? Have never used it…at least not that I can recall at this time.

  15. B.Stover
    12:21 pm on June 9th, 2016

    I used to use whiteout when I worked for an attorney but it could only be used on letters not on pleadings or wills or trusts.

  16. Thieves!
    12:22 pm on June 9th, 2016

    BM&AL: Whiteout is for mistakes? We will take your word for it. Belle Starr it is for painting dew claws. What say we clear some space in the office so we can have some office chair races?

  17. Thieves!
    12:23 pm on June 9th, 2016

    B: Did the attorney say how to get whiteout out of fur?

  18. Barb, Maggie and Angel Lucy
    12:34 pm on June 9th, 2016

    We do have a few office chairs here and a long hallway.

    Home will be busier for a few days. Shannon and her SO are bringing Sissy over tonight after work. Sissy is their almost 1 year old Cav. King Charles Spaniel. They are going to a wedding in St. Louis tomorrow and will be returning Sunday.

    Thieves – clippers may be involved. Just look what happened to Mr. Big.

    All dogs who get whiteout on their fur will have baths with foamy soap and then will be sprayed with hoses until clean….

    BMAL, How is Maggie doing?

    Rio, (from last night) I don’t usually play the blues, but would be wille to give it a try. ^..^

  22. Thieves!
    12:47 pm on June 9th, 2016

    BM&AL: Let the races begin!

    Storyteller: A word to the braided—don’t play around with whiteout unless you want a bath and to get sprayed with the hose. We have no reason not to believe B.

  23. Barb, Maggie and Angel Lucy
    12:48 pm on June 9th, 2016

    Maggie saw Lucy after she passed. She stood and looked at her and then looked at me for awhile, so she knew. She was very subdued yesterday, and didn’t even bark when I came home. Usually she is barking and bouncing all over the place. I think she is mourning, too.

    Kelly told me that when they had Joe put down at home, Gus got up the exact moment they gave him the shot, walked over and stood by him, then went back to his bed. It was like he knew when his spirit left his body.

    Bee, Is that a garden hose, or a fire hose? It makes a difference.

  25. B.Stover
    12:53 pm on June 9th, 2016

    I just looked up “white out.” They still sell the tape. I forgot about the tape. That was easy to use. You just put the tape on the mistake and typed the incorrect letter out. As I recall, IBM made “Selectric” typewriters that had white out tape “built” in. (And I’m now reminded of something I recently saw on Facebook: Children about six years of age were trying to figure out what a typewriter was. Sigh….)

    Bee – remind us to never get even just a little bit dirty around you. Not even a smidge.

  28. B.Stover
    12:57 pm on June 9th, 2016

    T&G are making me laugh.

    Barb: I had a garden hose in mind but now that you mention a fire hose….

    BM&AL: I try to be there when pups are born or rescued into the kennel, when they cross over and the many, many moments in between. But, it is those last moments that I consider sacred. I’ve held dogs in my arms as they cross and the kennel watched. When the spirit was gone, the kennel howled. They know, they know.

    When it was time to bury Rowdy—my dog of very little brain and one of my best friends—AJ came to get me. He already placed Rowdy in his grave before coming to get me. When we got to a Rowdy, Savannah, a born caregiver was standing at his graveside nosing dirt over him. We quietly joined her in her work with our hands. She wouldn’t leave his grave until her work was done. Dogs are very special creatures. Maggie will take care of you and you will take care of her. And—this is the good stuff—Lucy will continue to take care of both of you.

    White Out was invented by the mother of Michael Nesmith, the guitar player of the 60’s group “The Monkees.”

  35. B.Stover

    Good grief–The Monkees….

    Good Day All–I am seeing a great deal of talk about vats of stuff and Whiteout. IBM Selectrics used to come with black AND Whiteout ribbons. You flicked a switch on the typewriter to bring up the Whiteout ribbon, then backspaced and typed in white over any error, then retyped over the newly white surface. When I first saw this I thought it was the greatest thing ever invented.
    Here we come; walkin’ down the street…

    Diane C: Many, many moons ago, I worked for a company located in Rockefeller Center. Not only did I use an IBM Selectric, but a teletype machine as well.

    Hey, hey we’re the Monkees…

  39. dawson
    2:21 pm on June 9th, 2016

    DianeC: I had that Selectric typewriter. The ribbon had black, red and white-out selections on the ribbon. Very cool.

    Does anyone remember “shorthand”?

  43. Barb, Maggie and Angel Lucy
    3:27 pm on June 9th, 2016

    I took one year of it. Couldn’t remember any of it if I had to!

  44. Tupper and Gilly

    Court stenographers are going the way of manual typewriters, shorthand and (gasp) cursive writing.

    …opened bird’s egg on her hood . Mom did an extra library day to get the pre-reader books under control . At the moment, she is Absolutely crazy exhausted.

  46. B.Stover
    3:47 pm on June 9th, 2016

    T&G: Why are court stenographers doing that? I just read that musicians are using iPads and computers rather than sheet music.

  48. BearSpiritDog

    Nana tells us she regretted taking shorthand and wished she would have taken physics instead.

    Whiteout is still used in this house from time to time.

    Bee – technology is making stenographers’ jobs obsolete. There is a possibility of human error, bias, or downright dishonesty and the new machines are supposed to be incapable of error.

    This is why the Thieves will never get jobs as court stenographers. There is something just a little on the shifty side with those guys. Bribery by Slim Jim is only too real a possibility

    4:18 pm on June 9th, 2016

    T&G: Cursive writing! I went to school in Paterson, NJ from kindergarten through part of 5th grade. Cursive writing was a required class held every day. We learned to write script with a fountain pen, which was also required.

  54. SnowBella
    4:19 pm on June 9th, 2016

    We don’t think of Slim Jims as bribery. We think of them as a sufficient motivator.

  55. B.Stover
    4:19 pm on June 9th, 2016

    That is interesting about court reporters.

    I still use shorthand when I’m making notes or whatever…just habit…and it’s so much quicker.

    4:36 pm on June 9th, 2016

    Mama is leaving us AGAIN!
    Why does she even bother having Royal Corgis is she is going to abandon us all alone (except for Gramp) all the time.
    She says she does shows to support our treat budget, but we have our doubts. We have caught her paying bills with that money.
    Bills! Ones that have nothing to do with Slim Jims or kibble.

    Rose, Patterson is where all the Andy Carpenter books take place. Did you read them? If so, are they accurate?

    It is hard to believe Cursive Writing will soon be going the way of the dinosaur.

    Remembered words in Shorthand…in,to.the.

    Mom used an IBM selectric typewriter at her old job until the day she left. The young ones who would come into the office didn’t have a clue what she was using. Mom says her handwriting is so bad, she doesn’t like filling in forms. That’s why she would type. And she still uses whiteout (the tape kind).

    But….while searching youtube, we did watch for the first time a new video by our pottery mentor, Andy.
    It is 15 minutes long, but if you are interested in pottery, it is a wonderful way to watch a master at work.

    B,M&AL: I have read only one in the Andy Carpenter series, some time ago. I can not remember which one at the moment. I believe he may have mentioned East Side Park. That was a very affluent area, with very large homes. I am not sure if it remains the same to this day. I lived in Paterson from 1963 to 1969. I was 10 when my family moved back to New York. I can tell you where I lived in Paterson is now a very bad area. I lived on East 23rd Street between 12th and 13th Avenues.,_Paterson

    Jay just texted me:
    A former student of mine took that picture about a week ago. He told me today that it had 61,000 likes since he first posted it. My next-door neighbor came over to tell me that he saw it while he was in Honduras on his honeymoon.

    8:02 pm on June 9th, 2016

    Staff’s 5:03 mention of mosquitos reminded me of a sign I saw in front of a church last summer. It said, “I wish Noah had swatted those two mosquitos.”

    Wow, what a day on the blog. Thank you!
    The event on CApe Cod looks great. My brother’s son from Los Angeles will be visiting us that weekend, so it is a no for me. Maybe someday…
    I stayed late at school today. Grades are entered into the Almighty computer. I have one more quiz to give tomorrow. Last day for the kiddos is Wednesday, the 15th. Can’t wait. It has been a long year.

    The DDD showed us the picture of Tyb in the car. We thought it looked like him.
    Not only were the mosquitoes toast in the nature 365 it looks like the froggy’s were having all kinds of fun fun fun. No shorthand was ever taken by anyone in our family. We thought that we black Canadians are good looks alone! So far so good.

    And regarding cursive writing, mom didn’t get to have art in six grade because her teacher didn’t like her cursive. So, everyone else got the pictures and forth, got to practice her swirls and loops.

    Way to go, Tyb. You were born famous!

    I took shorthand and I wish I’d kept up on it but had no need except occasionally in meetings it came in handy. I would love to have my old Gregg shorthand book.
