Congratulations Eleanor! And Happy New Year!

“The random number generator has spoken,” Admin says.

“Sort of,” says Spence.

“And here is Eleanor, Chet’s Friend of the Month for January 2012. Her picture will be over in the special spot on the right for the whole month. Also, Eleanor’s human companion: please email spence.quinn@gmail.com with a postal address, and a signed copy of The Dog Who Knew Too Much will be winging its way to you.”

“Should we explain the rules again?” says Spence. “About all you have to do is upload a photo to the Friends of Chey gallery?”

“Some other time,” Admin says. “Right now let’s wish everyone a very happy new year.”

“Happy new year, everybody – to all those who come to the blog sometimes or regularly, and of course to the wondefrul Plunderers!”

Welcome Carly, Kami, Wyatt, Morgan, and the Pig.

    Good morning and a cheerful welcome to Eleanor. Happy 2012!

    I have to admit that Eleanor is very cute. Sorry you didn’t make FOM, Rio. Maybe next time.

    It is so windy here that you could get blown over. Good day to stay in, I think. We have to go give the goaties some hay, because they won’t venture out of the barn today.

    Another Happy New Year wish to everyone. Congratulations Eleanor. You’re an advance guarantee of at least one bright spot for each day in January. Just looking at your picture is fun. Hope you’re next Rio.

    I’m late checking in for the New Year’s Celebration, but here’s what happened to me. Yesterday I was at Sam’s where I stayed after the party Friday night. I was planning to come back to ski country for the big torch parade down a ski trail, after which the torches all make a big bonfire, followed by midnight fireworks. Right before I was leaving Sam’s, I got a shooting pain in my hip and I couldn’t walk. I took Aleve and sat with two heating pads for the next two hours. At that point I could walk so I came back to ski country. Parties galore here and the wine certainly helped, but the pain still got worse and I missed the torch parade. I was in bed with the heating pad and I’m still on the heating pad right now.

    Beau: Please try and be a better dog this year. You have a good friend in Rio. He will teach you everything you need to know about pugness. And Rio’s friend is A-1. You have found a nice forever home there. Please, please try harder. The Plunderers are rooting for you!

    MollyPop’s Mom: No way to start out the new year! I hope you are feeling tip top very soon.

    What a Joyful representative to greet 2012 – Eleanor welcome! (Rio, your time will come)

    Macy: Those were beautiful pictures of the girls your mom posted last night…and that dessert…scrumptious!

    Eleanor – who says dogs can’t smile?!?

    To start the new year in the right way
    Mama is off to play with clay
    What better way to spend the day
    Than with dirty hands – hooray hooray!

    Happy New Year all – do what makes you happy!

    Wishing that 2012 will be a great year for all of you!

    Yes, Beau, please listen to what Rose said. She said it very well. All of us are in your corner and praying for you.

    Mollypop’s Mom, Hope you start feeling better soon. Keep it up with the heating pad and rest.

    Macy, Thanks for the photos of the your very pretty girls.

    That Eleanor does make one smile. She has crisma for sure. Do you think she is a terrier cross? She looks a little like a Wheaton, but not sure.

    Beau, Hope you mellow out with Rio’s help. Rose said it very well.

    Eleanor: A member of the Nation Within living in the moment! Wow, what a joyful picture. (Zoë says that old Eleanor [ours] thinks that new Eleanor is worthy of the honorable name of Eleanor!)

    Loved all the comments, pictures and links last night. Made me feel like I had actually stayed up!

    YSAS said the countdown showed just how old some of those folks were getting. He mentioned Dick Clark for one. Dog, I remember Dick Clark as middle aged when I was a pre-teen!

    Walk / run was great. A beautiful morning to start the year. Soon i’ll be leaving to see Dan. Patsy is a tad wet! (And very happy) I wonder if I can put her in a full body bib?

  17. Masquers

    Wondering how Rio & friend are doing this morning. Paws crossed Beau has taken Rose’s advice.

    Now for a report on the play that we read at the party last Friday.

    My friend spent three years writing a play and this was its first reading. I thought this was just going to be a fun thing to do with a dumb play. I was right about the fun part, wrong about the dumb part. The play was very good considering this was the first airing.

    What a topic! Not at all what I expected. The play title is ‘Double Ligature’ and is about the Bike Path Killer who terrorized the Buffalo area for 20 years. I had two parts – a detective and a TV reporter.

    We could have used YSAS for this, but a good time was had by all. At the end, there was great applause and a champagne toast to the author.

    Awesome MollyPop’s mom! Now just get that hip better (speaks the woman who’s been using the heating pad on her back for two days!)

    FOTAS has her dress (gorgeous) now it’s shoes. She was asking for help on wedding shoes. She doesn’t have to worry about height, but can’t wear spikes because it will be outside in a forest glade. We compared wedges and such. Last night after I went to bed someone asked her what she wanted to wear and she said her Berks (Birkenstock sandals).

    I googled Birkenstock wedding sandals and there’s a company that adds bling to the sandals! Cool. She loves them.

    Here’s the link. http://www.crystalsparks.com/product_detail.php?prd=55

    Greetings Plunderers and happy new year to all. My mom lives in her Birkenstocks and walks me all the time, yes even in the winter, in her Birks. She can think of no better way to be comfortable on a wedding day than wearing blingy Birks.

    The weather here in the middle of the mitten has been unseasonably warm. Mom took the trash out yesterday with no coat! However, it’s all changing today, with a winter storm watch, big wind gusts and a couple inches of snow.

    Mom will be taking down the Christmas tree, purging some decorations and tidying the house after doing nothing for two days. We like days of doing nothing, and that’s how we celebrated 2012…by doing exactly nothing.

    Eleanor is a lovely lady and a worthy FOM. (Sorry Rio)

    Hope that hip feels better soon, MPM.

  27. Snowhook Bella
    12:58 pm on January 1st, 2012

    Yes! The race is just two months away. AJ and the team trained on a eighty mile run yesterday. He said the dogs did really well. He will be taking it easy in his race this weekend; he’ll be taking some young dogs with him so they can gain race experience. He said he’ll appreciate te Plunderers rooting for him even if he’s purposefully going slow.

  28. Masquers
    1:39 pm on January 1st, 2012

    Eleanor reminds me of a quote from The Guardians of Being: True Happiness is found in simple, seemingly unremarkable things.

    Two months away. Wolfie: just saying it makes us smile. Rio & friend will soon be packing for their much anticipated trip to the northern-most state. I know they can’t wait.
    Siber: We’ll need your advice as the time draws near…on GPS and all things Iditarod.
    Bella: The Plunderers will be cheering AJ on in the upcoming race. (btw – what happened to your ride from the airport?)

  29. Siber-H
    2:01 pm on January 1st, 2012

    We’ll be rooting for AJ and the dogs next weekend! Sounds like this will be a race for the youngsters to just have fun and learn what it is all about. I’m really happy we will have Live Tracking.

    Melanie, Love the sandals! She will be more comfortable in a pair of Berks.

    Mollypop’s Mom, That play does sound interesting…more interesting than a lot of subjects that are made into plays. I guess we live too far away to have ever heard of the Bike Path Killer.

    Crap!…Lost again!…dammit!

    2012!…snort!…We’ve been busy upstairs all morning and now it’s afternoon already..sniff!… Shes still working on that quilling order. Beau and I needed to be right under foot…heh!…So far Mr.B has been behaving very well today. Paws crossed that he wakes up and figures out what he can and cannot do. Or at least how to get away with it without being caught…grunt!

    Football!…We have to go upstairs again, but will be back to watch the Broncos play Kansas City. This is an important game because the Broncs will go to the play-offs if they win…wuffle!

  33. Melanie
    3:10 pm on January 1st, 2012

    BearSpiritDog, is that you howling in the clouds? What a grand picture.

    Took me and Patsy forever to just get down the hall at Rehab! Everyone wanted to see the Bear. Even though I introduced her as “Patsy” and she was wearing a bib that said “Mama” everyone wanted to know how big “he” was. . . Patsy took it in stride. She loves adoration.

    Patsy has her CGC (Canine Good Citizenhip) certificate and showed what a good member of the Nation Within she is. Of course, having a pocket of cheese treats helped.

    I read Dan some of his emails. We watched YSAS split wood on a video. Watched some of the Patriots game. (they were losing when I left)

    Dan is a tad depressed. Told me he didn’t want to eat in the dining room because everyone was too old and they never talked. Just after that a woman came up and talked to us for 10 minutes all about her cat, how lucky Dan was to have dogs.

    You will be proud that I held my tongue!

    Will tell FOTAS that you guys love the Berk bling sandals though I keep smiling at the thought of AJ the giant in Berk’s with bling on them!

  34. BearSpiritDog
    4:01 pm on January 1st, 2012

    Melanie: That could be me. I love to howl!
    Checked out the link – didn’t know they had Birkies for Brides!
    About Dan: We think he is just getting bored with that place. The thought of staying there even longer than anticipated has to be depressing for him. The visit from you and Patsy was sure to have lifted his spirits.
    We watched the video of YSAS chopping wood. Very neatly done. Definitely a multi-talented guy!

  35. Gus & BooBear
    4:26 pm on January 1st, 2012

    Melanie, when Mom’s Dad was living in an assisted living apartment after Mom’s Mom passed, he LOVED the dining room. the aides used to tell Mom that Mr. John loved to eat. He would circle just about everything on the menue. But, like Dan said, there wasn’t much conversation going on. He had a regular spot at a table with 3 other gentlemen, but other that “hello” nothing much was said. Mom and our Aunt Pam made sure that he had a visit everyday from one of them. Dan is healing and will get to go home. We know he often forgets that, but it’s something to look forward to. You have our email address…please send us Dan’s and we will certainly send him hello and hi!

    Rio, please be patient with Beau. We know you and your friend are trying hard to give him a good home, but it sometimes takes a very long time for bad behavior to go away. He just needs to know that he has a home and people who care (as well as a good pug brother).

    Happy New Year to each and all on this blog. May 2012 be a wonderful year for all.

    4:55 pm on January 1st, 2012

    5:38 pm on January 1st, 2012

    Patient!….No way!…snort!… If that guy gets in my way I let him have it…heh!…I wouldn’t worry about Beau going anywhere too soon…sniff!….Those two softies make all kinds of threats but when it comes down to it, they don’t have it in them to haul his ass off to the pound….grunt!….I’m probably stuck with him. She keeps saying he will be a different guy in 6 months time….grump!

    Not a good start to 2012. I hope you feel tip-top soon!

  40. Melanie
    6:15 pm on January 1st, 2012

    Riö, I think your friend is correct. It does take time. Once she gets Beau going on the brutal walks I believe that he “see the light”.

    Turns out Dan was sick today. Yesterday he took Martha and Zoe around waved at everyone said hello and knew their first names. Today he was down.

    I’m trying Agatha Christie’s “Tommy & Tuppence” series (Netflex streaming) I haven’t decided whether I like it or not. 1980’s acting is a bit dated. But it’s the first one, so I’m going to keep trying it.

    6:25 pm on January 1st, 2012

    Melanie, We would like Dan’s email too, when you have time.

    We are having a heck of a day here. So far the shingles are still on the roof, thank Dog. Just went out for our evening chores, so we are in for the nite. Have watched a couple of the Once Upon A Time shows that we had missed. They had a OUAT marathon today. That show is addictive!

    Barb made Mexican Fiesta chicken soup today. Yum!

  43. B.Stover
    6:27 pm on January 1st, 2012

    All of our decorations are down, except for lights on an outside tree and light posts and big wreath on the barn. It started to rain before we got to those. And we had some visitors too..nice way to start off the year. We just now finished our New Years Day traditional dinner. Do any of youse have the same tradition as we in Pennsylvania Dutch country? We all eat pork and sauer kraut on New Years…oh and mashed potatoes too. It’s the best meal of the year!

  48. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:17 pm on January 1st, 2012

    Losers!….Hmmmphf! The Broncos lost today, but now we are watching the Raiders game hoping they will lose….snort!…Cause if they lose their game, the Broncos will win the Division title….Woooooo! ….It has been a very long time since our team has been close to something like this!..chuffle!

  49. B.Stover

  50. Masquers
    7:49 pm on January 1st, 2012

    Barb: I think it was you who advised reading Water for Elephants before watching the movie. Last night mom’s friend said the same. So…..signing off early to do just that.

  51. B.Stover

    What a great time to sign on. Patsy Ketchum in the snow on the top of the page!
    It was a wonderful day with clay under her fingernails, and then a very nice dinner with family (beef tenderloin – it cut like butter – yum!)

    Tomorrow won’t be quite so wonderful – back to CLL. Yup, on the holiday. Of course CL herself won’t be there – as she said, “Of course I won’t be here. I want to have the holiday with my family!”

    Our wish for the new year – winning lottery tickets for EVERYONE!

  53. Melanie
    8:23 pm on January 1st, 2012

    At this point any meal I don’t have to cook sounds good. .
    Can I come over OleyHowlers?

    B.Stover Saw the conclusion of DA the first time round. It was a “Hey, no you can’t stop there!” moment.

    Headed off to do the dishes and then go to bed. Hoping that Dan and Zoë will both feel better tomorrow.

    Full!….It has been a full day of rough-housing in and outside of the house…heh!….Her mothers nerves are just about fried…snort! …Now Beau is barking for no reason whatsoever….chorkel!… My friend has hid herself away from all the chaos downstairs. She is working on her little projects and finally seeing the end of the tunnel….wheeze!….Maybe she will let me post some photos tomorrow of some things she’s been working on while we’ve been tearing up the house…chuffle!

  55. OleyHowlers
    8:42 pm on January 1st, 2012

    Everyone is invited! Pork just falling off the bone after cooking on low in the crock pot with sauer kraut all day long. And then Mom’s mashed potatoes and homemade loaf of bread freshly baked by our friend. There is plenty of food to go around. Pork and sauer kraut on New Years Day brings good luck.

  56. Siber-H
    9:03 pm on January 1st, 2012

    It is ham and blackeyed peas in the South that brings good luck on New Year’s Day.
    I should have asked Wolfie to help me blur all over the USA today.

  57. OleyHowlers

    Siber, we always add blackeye peas to our New Years meal, but Mom forgot to soak them yesterday. Those are our favorite legume.

  58. Tyb
    9:24 pm on January 1st, 2012

    Howlers,
    For as long as I can remember, pork and sauerkraut has been the New Year’s Day dinner in my family. That’s what we had today. Since tomorrow is the “legal” New Years, I suppose we’ll have left overs for dinner to keep the tradition.

  59. Barb & Maggie
    9:28 pm on January 1st, 2012

    Pork, kraut and mashed potatoes sounds wonderful. Blackeyed peas too.

    Barb had Fiesta chicken soup for lunch and shrimp caesar salad for dinner. Nothing traditional about any of that.

    Hope Dan, Zoe and MPM feel better tomorrow.

    Going to watch some tv and keep paws crossed that the electric doesn’t go out in this wind. Night all.

  60. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Relax!… My friend finished the quilling part now she says she can relax and breath tonight. Tomorrow is a big clothes shopping day and organizing paperwork day. Always lots to do around here…snuffle!

    Beau!….That guy has been unusually well behaved today…snort!….Even when we were tearing through the house, he was well mannered and didn’t fart once….grunt!…I hope all of you keep praying for him, it seems to be working. At least for now…wuffle!

  61. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:30 pm on January 1st, 2012

    9:41 pm on January 1st, 2012

    We just stumbled upon a free sample of “bejeweled”. It was kind of fun, but we don’t think we understand it completely. Does anyone here play it? Is it worth buying? And are we missing some part of it?

  63. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:43 pm on January 1st, 2012

    Wind!….Barb, it sounds like you are getting the wind that we had here yesterday….grunt!…If you sniff carefully I’m sure you can smell my breath on that wind…heh!heh!

    Dear Tupper and GillyMonster. I love bejeweled, but I play the free version from Yahoo. I have to play it on Internet Explorer though. I have never bought it though I am often tempted.

    I like to play the ‘action’ game. Haven’t played it much lately. Maybe…BBL

    Tupper!….Do you know who Lou Diamond Phillips is?….snort!….Would he be one of your choices for the role of Tonto?…sniff!….I’m not sure if he is a Native actor or not. I’ve always been under the impression that he was for some reason…wuffle!…Anyways, I think he needs a real acting job because I just saw him on a Food Network Celebrity Cook-Off thing…chorkel!…Apparently, his ribs are to die for…slurp!

    Mom and dad have to work tomorrow also. Even though it is a holiday, the phone company is open. The good news is that we get a floating holiday that we can take anytime, but it is too early in the year to even think about using up vacation time.

    Bejeweled is pretty much straight forward. Just another time waster, but then, I like time wasters! My ipad is full of them, because a couple of times a year Big Fish Games puts their mobile games on for $.99.

    Inner Peace:
    If you can start the day without caffeine,
    If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
    If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
    If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
    If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
    If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
    If you can conquer tension without medical help,
    If you can relax without a glass of wine,
    If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
    Then you are probably …

    The Family Dog!

    Macy – hahahahahahahahha!!!!

    Ok – so we bought bejeweled 2 cuz it was on sale and we don’t have any other games but solitaire and marbles and a bunch that we have NO idea how to play.

    We did get hooked – planned to go to bed an hour ago, and here we sit. But we got up to level 8 – for first times, that should be pretty good, right?

    And now we are going to bed. Night all.

    Level EIGHT???? I get a sniff of level 7 every once in a while. I have gotten as high as 750,000 once or twice but never ever to level 8.

    sob sob sob….

    Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp a lot about this, such as you wrote the book in it or something. I believe that you simply could do with a few percent to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, that is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.
