Congratulations, Babe!

The random number generator (now going back to the shop) has spoken (and the fire extinguisher worked, a lucky break here at HQ) and here’s Babe, Chet’s Friend of the Month for June. Babe’s picture will soon appear in the special place over on the right where DJ and Spencer are now. And as soon as Babe’s human companion emails a postal address to a signed copy of The Dog Who Knew Too Much will be enroute.

You too could be a winner next month! Just upload a photo to the Friends gallery. The r#g does the rest! (knock on w.)

Welcome Miles, Foster and Aspen, Moose & Willie, motoring dude, Patch, Baxter and Mick, “James” Papi, Oliver from Philly, Teddy & Patches, two friends, Porsche-ready dude, Libby & Rascal, two fishing buddies (living the dream).

And here’s Babe!

    Good Morning Melanie, Kirby, Everyone.

    Congrats, Babe! Oh my, Rio will not be happy to hear that he didn’t win again this month.

    Melanie, please upload some gardening pics. And I keep forgetting to send an email to your SDD. I want to see the wedding pictures too.

    Some out of state people pulled up in front last night, then drove into the driveway, then got out of the car, so Barb finally went out and talked to them. They had seen the house on line and were just transferred here. They apologized for being rude, but Barb showed them around outside. She is trying to sell, so she doesn’t mind people stopping. Paws crossed once again!

    Dad just pulled a joke — if you can call it that! — on me. He kept calling me and I couldn’t find him anywhere. Finally I looked in the hole in the laundry room floor, and he was underneath the house. He thought he was pretty funny. I won’t tell you what I thought!

    Rio: In case your question is real, it stands for random number generator.

    I’m chuckling over two posts from last night: “Noswad’s” of 9:44 and Rebecca’s of 9:45.

    Interesting derivation of “foxglove” Wookie. Thanks.

    Melanie, Got your SDD. Thank You!

    Barb, Paws crossed. We think it is a good sign the people apologized for stopping unannounced.

    Adios DJ and Spencer.
    Hola and Congrats, Babe!
    Lo siento, Rio.
    Barb, sounds hopeful to us.

    And here is our latest pic. Notice Sasha playing the part of Chet.

    Good late morning all.

    Congratulations Babe. You are a beauty.

    The parental units are back home. There were two tropical storms where they were in SC but they still took long walks by the angry-looking ocean and enjoyed being away. I was lonely and missed you guys on this here blog! We’re not caught up on blog-speak, either, but Mom shopped at the Mushers store last night.

    Hope Everybody is well. Have a good week.

  19. Siber-H
    10:44 am on June 1st, 2012

    I just ordred mom a hoodie. She HAS to have one with their logo on it, but she never wears black because of dog hair. I explained to her there is no difference in a blue hoodie or a black hoodie covered with dog hair. Dog hair is everywhere here.
    Rebecca, no hurry because she won’t be able to wear it until October.

    There are only 4 tubs of pretzels left. Buy them before they are gone!!

    Linda, Thank you for your donations! Shipping those containers of pretzels to the four corners of this country will be a job. Thanks again.

  20. Tupper and Gilly

    Yay! BlueCat is home. Glad you had a good time by the ocean. Mama is sooooo jealous.

    Welcome back, Bluecat!

    Fellow Sibers, Cute photo of you guys.

    10:55 am on June 1st, 2012

    Good Morning, All,
    I’m not sure I’ve been on since May 1st because I’ve been so busy I haven’t had time even to lurk. It being June 1st, I have to come up for air long enough to do the June page of the calendar. Hope all is well with you and that things settle somewhat for me soon so that I can keep in better touch.

    Congrats to Babe!

    Last night was the retirement dinner for beloved superintendent of the school district. My employer bought tickets for employees wanting to attend. Carol was also our Iditarider in the 2011 race. Her VIP seat in the sled was purchased by an oil company. She was so nice as fun to have on the trail. As I looked through the program last night I was surprised at the back page. A color photo of Carol, AJ and I from the ceremonial start stared back. It was a thank you ad from the oil company.

    SiberH: Because we can’t afford to have an inventory on had, we will place an order for the hoodies and tshirts on Monday. Once they are made up we will ship them out. The screen printer is a local shop who loves mushers. We received a call a couple of months ago, the owner called and asked if we wanted some fish for the dogs. Yes!

  24. OleyHowlers
    11:06 am on June 1st, 2012

    Here is a better pic, but Sasha is not in it. She really hates her picture taken.

  25. Barb & Maggie
    11:09 am on June 1st, 2012

    Oley, How do they get all of you to lay still like that?

    TYB, Tell your dad he is supposed to be retired!

    Barb is busy busy at work. BBL

  26. Snowhook Bella
    11:13 am on June 1st, 2012

    Tyb: It is good to see you!

    June 1st! That means AJ and I have been married for ten years.

    B&M: fingers crossed that the folks are interested in your property.

  27. OleyHowlers
    11:16 am on June 1st, 2012

    Maggie, lying still is our very favorite activity. Besides, we had not yet received our morning cookies, so we were going to go along with anything they asked. :0

    Tyb, thanks for the calendar and great to hear from you!

    Rebecca, Congratulations on your anniversary! Will you and The Giant be celebrating with a special date?

  28. Siber-H
    11:18 am on June 1st, 2012

    Okay, Plundereers, If you want a Snowhook hoodie or t-shirt, place your order before Monday! Woo Woo

    Woo Woo again. The Hot One is looking very good, indeed.

    TYB Welcome back!

    Whew, I’ll get back to you on that link Barb and MagPie.

    Ummm, right now I’m transferring soil from a pile from when the pool was put up to a load of rocks from when the pool was put up. I think that’s right. .

    Anyhoo, 1/2 of the rock pile has dirt in it. I will fill it up 3/4 of the way, then compost/soil mix. That is where I am planting the squash and pumpkin. If I can remember where in the heck I put those seeds!

    I am also missing the peas, beans and cucumber seeds. sigh

    Zoe is about home. We haven’t been to a store for a big shopping in quite some time. She did it today because Jesse would be here to help unload. But, Jesse is not here because his back feels like knives are going into it.

    Anyone ever plant Bachelor Buttons? Anything I should know?

    OleyHowlers, I see only three beds. You have more than three dogs. Does this cause a problem?

    Kirby T. have a story for you sort of like the story you told, but Zoe is putting up now so BBL.

    One of my friends has this on her Facebook page: “It doesn’t matter if the glass is half empty or half full. There is clearly room for more wine.”

  33. OleyHowlers
    12:15 pm on June 1st, 2012

    B: We LOVE that one! We will remember to use that in the future.

    Melanie, Sasha does not feel she can navigate onto one of those there lounge chairs, so she just gives orders to her captive audience from out in front.

    Rio, We are clearly not rich! We wish! Mom is just real good with a credit card. heh heh

  34. Mollypop's Mom
    12:27 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Oley’s – I wondered why there were three chairs for four dogs. Where does Sasha sleep outdoors?

    Does the hoodie have a zipper front?

    Kirby T, when YSAS was very young, his dad had to renovate the downstairs bathroom before it fell into the crawlspace. He had taken the toilet out and was down strengthen beams when YSAS walked in. His Dad said “HI!” Well, if YSAS didn’t think that was the bees’ knees! He had long conversations with his dad. Didn’t matter if his dad was in the crawlspace or not!

    After the toilet was put back in YSAS still had conversations with his dad, he just lifted the toilet seat!

    Franklin is on a special mission. Will let you know if it works out.

    Decade!…A decade of being married to a Giant…snort!…I bet that has been interesting…heh!…Congratulations Rebecca and AJ…snorkel!

  37. Tupper and Gilly
    12:52 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Howlers – we want to come live with you! We love stone houses,with horses in the pasture and Corgi height type lounge chairs.

    They are getting ready to go to a show in Boston tomorrow – thats about 2 1/2 hours away and they have to be there by 6:30 am to set up. At least it is only a one day show – and it is outdoors and the weather report is for rain. Could we maybe get some Plunderprayers for a positive change in the forecast?

    Bella – HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! 10 down and we wish you at least 70 more to go!

  38. Barb & Maggie
    12:53 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Happy Anniversary to Rebecca and AJ. What is the symbol for # 10?

    We agree with Rio. Oley’s folks have a mighty fine place.

  39. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:36 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Rebecca!…Quit celebrating your anniversary and check your SDD…snuffle!

  40. Kirby T. Penworthy
    1:37 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Melanie: LOL! Luckily, I didn’t have to talk to Dad through the toilet — only the hole in the floor!

    Rebecca: Happy Anniversary! Mom and Dad celebrated their 33rd anniversary last Saturday. Only I don’t think it was much of a celebration. Mom went out of town to a wedding. Dad stayed home with me. They were supposed to celebrate with a trip this week, but the laundry room is taking precedence. Sigh! Maybe later this summer?

  41. OleyHowlers
    2:26 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Happy Anniversary to Kirby’s mom and dad.

    Melanie, that story about YSAS talking to his dad in the toilet is hysterical! Thanks for that laugh!

  42. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:39 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Busy!…My freind just text’d me from the incredibly-busy-place and said that everyone has lost their minds…heh!…She seems a bit frazzled today…sniff!…I bet she takes it out on me and Beau with some really long walks tonight…grunt!…Beau got a brand new halter and now he thinks he is hot stuff when he trots along down the street…wheeze!…What a poser.

  43. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:41 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Hot-stuff!…Speaking of hot-stuff, I hope Rose is cooling down and feeling okay…sniff!…Hopefully they put out the sparks in her hair….grunt!

  44. OleyHowlers
    2:53 pm on June 1st, 2012

    MollysMom, the answer to “Where does Sasha sleep” is so obvious….wait for it….
    ANYWHERE SHE WANTS !!! heh heh !

    Actually she mostly sleeps on the grass.

  45. BearSpiritDog
    2:59 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Rio: We are anxiously waiting to hear from Rose and the Smoochers, here also.

    Happy Anniversary to SnowBella and the Giant and a happy belated anniversary to Kirby’s mom and dad.

    O.Howlers; @ great photos of youse guys and gals. Kat! You are growing up fast. Nana says that patio furniture looks familiar.

    Melanie: I tried to get Mission details out of Franklin, but he isn’t talking. Damit!

    MollyPop’s Mom: The hoodie is a pullover.

    Hi to BlueCat, Dawson and Siber-H.

    Royals: The Best in Sales to your mum and dad tomorrow!

    TYB: Thank Dog! Our June calendar has arrived!

    B: That is an expression worth remembering!

    Paws crossed for Barb&Magpie.

  46. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:18 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Bear!…Why are your paws crossed for Barb? …grunt!…Did I miss something? Or are you just bored?…sniff!

  47. B.Stover
    3:20 pm on June 1st, 2012

    I was wondering where Bear was. Paws are crossed in hopes that Barb sells her house…I think….Rio.

  48. Barb & Maggie
    3:28 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Amalia, Good luck at the show tomorrow. And hopefully you won’t run into many of those Darwin rejects.

    Melanie, How is the garden planting going?

    Remember our neighbor who thinks Barb is crazy for being organic? Yeah, the one who sprayed Roundup all over her garden before planting, and even killed the grass 1-foot all around the outside of the bed. Well, now she is complaining that nothing is growing very well in her garden. Tomato plants look ok, but seeds are sprouting sporadically. Go figure!

  49. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:33 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Roundup!…Isn’t Roundup a ground killer?…sniff!

  50. BearSpiritDog
    3:49 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Rio: As B says, paws crossed for sale of Barb’s house.

    Barb: Your Kindred Spirit Farm deserves the very best of owners.
    We know your realtor, the CL, freaked when she thought you were considering changing agents. Does that mean you will be renewing her contract when it expires in June? The other agent wanted you to drop the price considerably and we think that is just crazy talk. You have showings by appointment only and now looky loos are just dropping by – what’s up with that?
    Is your neighbor’s property the one where heavy spraying was done recently that affected some of your plants?

    Kirby: The problem goes deeper by the day. Is that hysterical laughing I hear from deep in that hole?

    O.Howlers: The Talisman was a favorite of ours too. Didn’t the main character have a best friend called Wolf? As I recall he had a certain problem come each full moon.

  51. BearSpiritDog
    3:59 pm on June 1st, 2012

    We are all set to go gardening…having bought some annuals for the flower bed and lettuce and carrot seeds to plant. Looked for tomato plants, but didn’t see any. Our plan is to look for a plant already seeded…perhaps from a nursery.

    B: Can you send Nana the link from facebookie?

    Where in dog’s name is Rose?

  52. dawson
    4:10 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Mosquitoes are here. Carpola…I’m not used to these southern mosquitoes. I’ve got welts!

  53. Barb & Maggie
    4:26 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Rio, Yes it Roundup is a “contact killer” but my neighbor believes the hype that it is safe to plant after two weeks. We have read that residue will remain in soil for up to a year or more.

    Bear, No this neighbor is at the far end of our pasture. They have about 3 acres along side of our property. Spray came from across the road. Our property is wedged between 2 big farmers so we are at their mercy. When Barb moved here she thought she was moving to an area populated by nature loving farm people. In truth they spray chemicals all over God’s green earth, and shoot any creature that moves. Suburban people actually have more respect for the earth and animals.

    The lady that stopped was a little nervy, but Barb doesn’t mind – at this point she is happy to have anyone stop by.

    Barb is going to renew with the CL. She is in the process of having an expensive (several hundred $$) sign made to advertise Barb’s place. It will be put up 3 miles away at the main highway. Since she is doing this, we feel that we should stick with her, crazy that she is. She does spend more on advertising than any of the other realtors in the county and is the only realtor in our town.

  54. Melanie
    4:49 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Will catch up later. Franklin just back. He found Snowhood’s Giant and Bella’s top of their wedding cake that they have kept frozen for TEN years!

    Sorry about the slice missing. The Pack and I got hungry.

    It is now defrosted and headed back for a special date! Too bad the Giant and Bella can’t be together tonight!

  55. Rose
    4:51 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Hey youse guys!

    Whew! What a day! Not only did I get the lightning bolts, but there was a little trouble putting the fire out in my hair. After I was fiinally sprung from the hospital, the Prof and I had a quick Starbucks run, and then off to my therapist appointment. The Prof took me out for lunch after that, and now the Smoochers are looking after me.

    Congratulations, Babe!

    OHs, what great pictures! You are a great looking bunch, and the lovely Kat is growing up. Seems you have some hidden talents….ustedes hablan Espanol my bien!

    T&G, wishing the Royal Mum and Dad good luck with the show and dry weather for tomorrow!

    Kirby T, wish your mom and pop a happy anniversary from me!

    Rebecca, wishing you and AJ the happiest of anniversaries now and forever!

    SiberH and Rio: I always read the blog early in the morning before I leave for the lightning bolts. I left youse guys a special message….

    Tyb! Nice to see you! Love your calendar page!

  56. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:56 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Rose!…I got the Rockies Kicking Butt message…Wooooo!…They have won FOUR in a ROW now…heh!heh!…The Dodgers come to town tonight – and my friend is going to the game on Sunday afternoon….sniff!

  57. Melanie
    4:57 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Have a minute or two . . Zoe is talking to the pool guy.

    Whewee, I bought a Verbanian (?) hanging plant to go with the two fuchsias that I have hanging outside in a tree. They are supposed to attract hummingbirds and I though Dan would like that when he comes home.

    Hmmm, Cucumbers, zuiccini, pumpkins, peas and beans all planted. I forgot to get yellow squash. I’ll get that the next time I go out. The peas and pumpkins are seeds.

    Now someone has giving me 3 snapdragons and some zinnias. Not sure where to put them.

    Lettuce (seeds) are all planted in the gutter.

    Mulch down, going to rain tonight and than as The Royals’ Mum has asked for IT WILL BE SUNNY!

    YTAS and Hamlet are coming up for a quick visit tomorrow until Monday morning. That will be nice.

  58. Melanie
    5:01 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Kirby T, I must be back to reading every other word, because I didn’t see that it was your parents’ anniversary too. I bet it’s more than 10 years.

    And BlueKat, the beach . . . want to be at the beach . . . with Patsy!

    Whoops, Zoe’s coming back. We’re just about to start “Winnie the Pooh” a MMMS special from BearSpiritDog.

    I got it for her birthday, but we needed some fun. I gave it to her today.

  59. Barb & Maggie
    5:16 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Bear, You definitely want to buy tomato plants and not seeds. All garden centers and nurseries, even many grocery stores and big box stores will have them. More likely to find some heirlooms at garden centers, but our little grocery actually had 6 or 8 varieties of heirlooms.

    Melanie, sounds like you had a productive day. Enjoy some leisure time now.

  60. T.C.
    5:27 pm on June 1st, 2012

    I just received the cat coin purse I bought for my mommy. She loves it!!! She said it looks just like her first cat, Martha!

  61. Siber-H
    5:35 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Rose, Got your message and glad you are back with us.
    Maybe the Rockies can kick some Dodger butt.

  62. B.Stover
    5:42 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Bear: What link on Facebook are you referring to?

  63. B.Stover
    5:48 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Good to hear from you Rose.

  64. BearSpiritDog
    6:08 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Rose: The Smoochers were very concerned about the fire and have reported no bolts scheduled for next weekend. Thank Dog!

    Barb: You were mentioning the Chipotle Back to the Start video to the Howlers last night. We love that video too! Here it is again:

    B: I was referring to the glass half full quote your friend posted on F/b…probably not a link.

  65. Rose
    6:36 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Rio and SiberH: Hey, now! Checking today’s newspaper, the Rockies are now 11 1/2 games out…wooohooo! (Bet you didn’t think that even a Yankee fan would root for your team, did ya? I always root for the underdog, and hope your guys kick some Dodger butt, too!!!) Rio, hope your friend has a great time at the game.

    Bear, BelleStar has a plan to shed some hair and and weave it into mine. 🙂 Right now, the Smoochers are gathered at my feet (well, Masquers is on my lap) watching me catch up on some work, and nibbling on Swedish Fish.

  66. Rose
    6:39 pm on June 1st, 2012

    It is nice to see you back as well, BlueCat!

    TC, the kitty coin purse sure is cute!

    Abbie the Kitty up top.

  67. Rose
    6:47 pm on June 1st, 2012

    SiberH, I am very distressed to hear about the NM fire. It was just reported on the news that the fire is the size of New York City, and the smell reaches Alburquerque.

  68. Mollypop's Mom
    6:48 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Rose – I see no harm in rooting for the Rockies. In fact, Natasha makes this quite desirable. Go Rockies!

  69. BearSpiritDog
    6:51 pm on June 1st, 2012

    AaaROOoooooo! Soooo very rare – my Wolf/Husky pillowcase has arrived in the mail! Thank you, Staff 🙂

    Barb&Magpie: Thanks for the tip about the tomato plants. Nana says she needs and appreciates all the help you can give her.

    Melanie: The anniversary cake (what’s left of it) looks yummy.

    Rose: Thanks for the updates. I see M is relaxing in the lap of luxury and can’t be bothered to text. Hrumph. I thought the trio was on a mission, not a vacation for dog’s sake.

    Siber-H: I am sorry to hear about the huge fire in NM.

  70. Siber-H
    7:00 pm on June 1st, 2012

    WOW Thanks Rose and Mollypop’s Mom. The Rockies will need all the help they can get with the Dodgers coming to town. I have been known to cheer for the Yankees at times. That comes from Mom being a BIG Yankees fan when she was growing up.

    Rose, We haven’t had the smell from the fire here since last Saturday…a totally horrible day. I live at a higher elevation than Albuquerque. Albuq. is in a valley like the one Chet and Bernie live in. We can see the smoke that settles in the valley over Albuquerque, so, yes, they may be smelling it.
    They are saying they may have this fire out by July.
    If we start getting the smoke from the fire once again, I will start complaining.

    Beeeeeearrrrrr, you bought the Husky pillowcase???? We thought Siber must have bought that. We were holding out for a matching 2nd.

    We didn’t watch the Chipotle video yet, but are assuming it is the Superbowl commercial. That commercial is what got us investigating and falling in love with Chipotle.

    I tried for the husky-wolf pillowcase, but it had already sold.
    If staff were to make 2 or 4 more for the next sale, she knows now they would sell. The Howlers have a good idea. A matching pair would sell.

    Bear,about the NM fire, thank you .

    I must admit pouncing on that pillowcase as soon as it went on sale. We all know all quickly Husky items are snapped up around here. As there is a large Wolf Dreamcatcher hanging on the wall over the bed, we couldn’t resist adding the pillowcase.

    Melanie: Let me know how you and Zoe liked the movie.

    Oley and Bear, Yes it is the Super Bowl commercial. DIL Jessica called us that night and said “you have to watch this!” We can’t watch it without getting a little teary. It might be partly the Willie song that goes with it.

    Bear, you can email us too, if you want any detailed info on the gardening. We are happy to help.

    Siber, we have been watching the news about the wildfires, and our hearts goes out to all those affected out west.

    Hmmm, if it wasn’t for Chipotle YSAS would starve to death.

    “Winnie the Pooh” was a big hit! I’m not telling her what else I got for her birthday. She’s just going to have to wait until October!

    For some reason I’m very tired tonight . . . pondering. It’s a good tired though. Not exhaustion.

    Siber-H, I’ve been watching reports about NM’s fire and others by this web site.

    I’m going to try to stay awake a little longer but I can’t make any promises!

    Thanks Melanie. That is a good website. A portion of NM they are showing as having extreme fire danger is desert land that has been overgrazed to the max. Little danger of it burning. The forests have not been permitted to burn for decades. They are overgrown and ready to burn like the Gila fire. Where the Gila fire burns on the ground, the fire is good for the forest. In the places where the Gila fire is burning too hot that makes it very difficult for the forest to recover and be a part of the natural, healthy cycle of fire in a forest.

    SiberH, I can’t imagine what it must be like to breathe in smoky air like that. Cough! Cool that your mom was/is a Yankee fan.

    Molly’sMom: It’s not that I want to see Siber lose his bachelorhhood to Nattie (sorry Kat). I just don’t want to see the boys suffer like the Mets fans have been doing for years. 🙂

    The smoke actually smells good…like a campfire, but it causes sore throats, sneezing, coughing, allergies, asthma attacks…all sorts of nasty things.

    Now that we are done with our “friendly” duties (our paws are sore from all the “pawtographs” we’ve had to sign and all that flash photography – please no pictures!), we will concentrate on keeping Mom busy until the ebook comes out!
    Thanks again for the honour of being friends of the month – R#G, we couldn’t have done it without you!

    Melanie: The wildfiretoday link appears to be a good source of information about the fires. The congressional budget cuts are definitely not helping matters for the firefighting agencies.

    You and Zoe are going to have a fun weekend with YSAS and Hamlet visiting.

    Rose: A certain kat I know is sure to be a diehard Yankees fan soon. How are they doing this afternoon…are they winning?

    I only had enough fabric for one owl pillowcase and one husky/wolf pillowcase. I bought the fabric about 4 or 5 years ago at a quilt shop near Duluth. I expect that fabric is long gone. If I see any more I will snap it up.
    I am glad to hear the gifts are arriving. I expect the Market Square book has also arrived. It went to someone in Texas, but I didn’t recognize the name. Maybe she is a lurker?

    DJ and Spencer, what a gracious note. You guys certainly are cute.

    Bear, Yankees are leading 6-3 in the fourth, but CC has been pitching horribly. GAH!

    Siber, I like the campire smell, too. I feel badly for those people who the fire has a bad effect on.

    Just got a call from YSAS. His first words were, “I’m all right.” Yup, that means he’s had problems . .

    This time? No lunch, no supper just worked straight through as a demolition guy. He got a large splinter in his arm. One of his roommates was going to take it out, when he fainted on her. Remember, no lunch, no supper, no giving his body what it needs after strenuous work. (rolling eyes here)

    So he called while he was eating. They had surgery, hydrogen peroxide, soap (several times) and triple antibiotic cream.

    Sigh. This is so like our whole family. He didn’t faint again. Grace, his roommate, not the dog, slapped him to wake him up. Maybe it put some sense into him?

    Well, maybe. We will ply him with antibiotics when he gets here. Hamlet is an EMT should YSAS should be fine.

    On that light note, I’m hitting the bed. Storms coming this way.

  95. Siber-H
    9:26 pm on June 1st, 2012

    The Rockies just scored 2 runs on a very wild throw by the Dodger’s catcher. We’ll take the runs any way we can get them.

  96. Riö –The Evil Pug
    9:27 pm on June 1st, 2012

    SiberH!..Why are our announcers sitting in the sun?…heh!heh!….Those guys crack us all up…sniff!…Uh-oh, she is making moves like we might have to go walk…wheeze!crap!

    9:31 pm on June 1st, 2012

    I am here! It has been a busy day so I haven’t been able to celebrate much of anything. AJ and Tenzing will be home for the night very late, but at least I will be able to see the giant for a short while. Do I have to share the cake with AJ?

  98. Barb & Maggie
    9:34 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Tired here too, but at least we have no storms coming our way.

    Be safe everyone. Rio, tell you friend to take it easy tonight. Is this the night you are having tacos?

    Sweet dreams!

  99. Siber-H
    9:38 pm on June 1st, 2012

    I think they are setting in the sun because they get to eat, eat, eat up there. Mom and I are getting sick watching the one announcer eat.

    Joking aside, it must be for promotional purposes they are setting up there. They want to show the fans all the great places you can set at Coors Field to watch the Rockies play and EAT while watching the game.

    Turtleman and “e” were here. They ate pretzels. They are getting ready for the 24 hour race tomorrow. She will run in it and he will be volunteering.

  101. Siber-H
    9:45 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Rio, You may be walking now, but I don’t understand why they took the Rockies starting pitcher out. He wasn’t in trouble and he didn’t get injured. Maybe I missed something. He did better than their other starting pitchers.

  102. dawson
    9:49 pm on June 1st, 2012

    YSAS doing demolition without eating proper meals! I suppose this means he wasn’t wearing safety goggles either. Those young folks think they are bullet proof. On the other hand…if he gets a scar out of the deal, that could be a good thing because I imagine all those Irish bootleggers have scars. But, please, YSAS, not on that handsome face!

  103. Gus & BooBear
    10:07 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Staff, we are the ones who bought the Market Square book. You just didn’t recognize Mom’s name. But it hasn’t arrived yet. Maybe tomorrow?

    Our items that have sold are being paid by check so we are waiting on the okay from Rebecca to mail them. She can go ahead and send the addresses to us now since we know who bought them and the checks are in route.

    Did any of you guys notice that Babe’s picture is just on Friends of Chet? He is a newbie and has won already!! Bet Rio won’t be too happy about that, but congrats to him…he’s a handsome fellow or could be a pretty girl (don’t know why we assumed it is a boy.)

    Rio, how wonderful that Beau is excited about his walks now. He has come a long way!

    Rose, sorry about the bad dream! Don’t need that to go along with the lightning bolts. Feel better,okay?

    10:37 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Yes, THE Pretzels. They are 1/2 gone already and it hasn’t even been a whole day. I don’t understand it because no one here really likes pretzels, or so I’ve been told.
    Rose: That’s Detroit the Yankees are beating up on and they are underdogs.

  109. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:43 pm on June 1st, 2012

    Check!…She paid by check for the first tub of pretzels, so she is still waiting for them to arrive….snort!…I guess she figures she will have the first tub eaten by the time the second tub arrives…wheeze!…Do you guys know how many walks these pretzels mean for me and Beau?…gasp!wheeze!
