“I hear there’s a contest coming up,” Spence says.

“I wouldn’t say contest,” says Admin.

“More like a fun thing involving readers, their dogs, video, and The Sound and the Furry?”

“You said it, not me.”


“Why this constant search for meaning?”

“More to come on this?”

“You said it, not me.”

Welcome Buckaroo Banzai, Bootsie Baby.

    Good morning! We are in jail again today. More thunderstorms in the forecast.

    Contest!!!! Oh no, will Mom or Pop have to figure out how to do a video and then how to send it? We are doomed.

    Gooood morning, everyone! OH: we are with you, doomed. Mom has learned to take fotos on the ipaw, but still no luck sending.

    Rocky night here as the storm RAGED till after midnight 🙁 Hope we get to dry out a little today. Have a trusting Thursday, ya’ll.

    Good morning. We here don’t do well with contests either. Not a lot of creative talent going on over here.

    Hey, remember the ground squirrel with a death wish who dug a hole right next to our patio? Well, he got his wish. Barb really couldn’t repremand me too much, cuz to me he looked like a stripped rat. All I can say is that it was over in a New York second.

    It sounds as though Admin didn’t do well in his tennis match and it’s left him grumpy.

    Good morning all.

    Whooo Hoooo! A Contest!
    I may have to draw stick figures in animation for the video but I’m in.
    Barb&Maggie: Another notch on the collar.

  9. Melanie
    9:52 am on July 11th, 2013

    Glup, that bear is huge! Hope SnowBella has a safe trip.
    Macy, I’m glad I saw that picture this morning instead of last night. At least I was being chased by a racoon instead of a Polar Bear.

    MagPie! Good for you!

    C.Hobbit, when we had “intact” dogs, things could get a bit wild around here. snicker . . We used melatonine to calm them down. It worked so we could get a break.

    9:57 am on July 11th, 2013

    B.Stover, last night I left you a comment about a book you might enjoy.

    Happy Trusting Thursday to all!

    A contest, hey? A video, eh? . .

    Today I dodge storms and vacuum out the pool. Not from the inside though, Zoë is gone until two pm. No human in the pool unless another human is there.

  11. Barb & Maggie
    10:02 am on July 11th, 2013

    Taking a bow here. Thank you, thank you.

    Barb is off for 3 hours of babysitting. BBL

    Melanie,mom is trying tech (ya right). When you can, check your SDD.

  13. B. Stover
    10:19 am on July 11th, 2013

    Melanie: Thank you. I just downloaded Life After Life to my Kindle.

    Trusting Thursday.
    I like it!

    Contest? Videos?

  16. Herd of Hounds
    10:47 am on July 11th, 2013

    Whoo hoo, look what mom just did. She’s almost into the 20th century. Can the 21st be far behind?

  17. Masquers
    10:52 am on July 11th, 2013

    HOH: Hurray! You did it.

  18. Tupper and Gilly
    10:55 am on July 11th, 2013

    Dawson- stick figures, tee hee
    Macy – polar bear? Can we feed Mr. Vick to him?
    HOH – wahoo! Good for you. Is that your baby Newf?
    Maggie – good job. We have tried and tried to get a fuzz butt with no luck. They cheat and use trees to escape.
    Melanie- raccoons?

  19. Herd of Hounds
    10:56 am on July 11th, 2013

    Mornin’ BSD. We love your comments.

    Masquers, Tanks 🙂

  20. Herd of Hounds
    10:59 am on July 11th, 2013

    FYI, the test foto is Darah Thea who is now 6 months and is convinced she is a baby bulldozer!

  21. Melanie
    11:13 am on July 11th, 2013

    HOH, Good for you!
    Darah, I see you have mastered the anti-gravity nap position. Congratulations.

    Sharon, was going to wait to tell you, but bulldozer is just the start.

    Mac and Ros liked to move the fur-niture. As in the heavy stuff. As in redecorate all the rooms.

    Good Luck!

  22. Herd of Hounds
    11:41 am on July 11th, 2013

    Melanie: Was going to use Darah the decorator at first because she moves god beds and throw rugs into a pile for her, her, her.

  23. Siber-H
    12:33 pm on July 11th, 2013

    HOH Good Job!!!

    We are just checking in to say everything is fine except the roof has developed a leak. The two-leggeds are trying to teporarily fix it until the professionals can fix it….6 to 8 weeks.
    I am supervising.


  24. Macy
    12:41 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Sharon, did you send that pic from your iPaw? We have never even tried that.

    Good CST morning y’all. Mom was going to take gmother to the laundry this morning, but someone else took her, so another day where we don’t leave the house. (well, some of us have to go out, out, out, but not for long, long, long) The heat index for today is 106. meh

    Some people are just too creative.

  25. Macy
    12:42 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Forgot to say that picture was for Lucy Loo.

  26. Tupper and Gilly
    12:47 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Macy – that picture is amazing. To think that someone has that much time on their hands….
    Your heat index is only two degrees higher that ours. Do you usually have very high humidity in the summer?

  27. FinnDogsMom
    12:47 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Happy Day, everyone!

    A contest! Sounds like fun.

  28. Melanie
    1:04 pm on July 11th, 2013

    HOH, be careful you do not get blamed for Darah’s redecorating. I’m talking sofas, chairs, tables . . not just rugs and dog beds.

    I have tried the new brushes for the pool. They work. It is now time for a heating pad. It is much easier doing the vacuuming in the pool.

    Macy, that is amazing.

  29. Melanie
    1:14 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Hi FinnDogsMom, Happy Trusting Thursday.

    HOH, please tell your mom to check her SDD.

  30. Macy
    1:36 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Royals, YES the humidity is high here, but it is even worse down at Gus & Boo Bear’s. They practically wear the ocean down there.

  31. dawson
    2:09 pm on July 11th, 2013

    MacyMP: I’m sitting right in front of the fan too. I’ve seen that KaffeKat watching fishes before – it is amazing.

    Speaking of amazing.
    HOH: Wow! You are a quick study. A definite threat to win the contest. (sob) But the smart money is still on Melanie.

  32. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:09 pm on July 11th, 2013

    SiberH!…How can your roof leak if you never get any rain?…grunt!

  33. Herd of Hounds
    2:31 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Melanie SDD checked & responded.

    Hey to FDM. Macy: Lucy Lou thanks you. Dawson, don’t worry about the contest, takes creativity, we’ll bet.

    Got a story but will tell it another time…when mom stops scratching from flea bites (and it ISN’T from us)

  34. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:59 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Contest!…We are betting that Melanie wins this contest. She is the Queen of making stylish videos…sniff!…Plus she has all the newfs to direct in the movie. She is a shoe-in to winnit…grunt!

  35. Herd of Hounds
    3:11 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Rio: a paw up on the competition, as it were.

    Another time is here! The Daddy Dawg has wanted a 5th wheel trailer forever (or since they moved out of the school bus they converted (another story) and mom’s 1965 silver bullet wasn’t cutting it 🙁 He found his heart’s desire in MI when they went up there. 27′, gently used, great layout. Dragged it back to the scenic city to discover there are FLEAS in the carpet and mom is allergic to bug bites, always has been. So now, the spleenless wonder is waiting for the Daddy Dawg to BOMB the “Dog House” so mom can clean it and get it road ready. Mmmm, maybe travel with an HOH and a peck of parrots is in the future. Goldfish are on their own 🙁

  37. Herd of Hounds

    Gah! is right! No more kitty cookies! Yetch, scary too.

  38. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:23 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Clampetts!….For some reason the HOHs family reminds me of the Clampetts…snort!

  39. Herd of Hounds
    3:30 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Righty-o Rio 🙂

  40. Belle Starr
    3:33 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Rio: You make it sound like it is your common practice to roll in such ickiness? Ick and spit…

    Macy: I’m to tell you that no bears joined my Two-legged on her flight this morning. No telling what her flight home will bring, but she’ll keep an eye out for passengers wearing a white fur coat.

    Clampetts! My Four-Legged tells me that when they moved north to Alaska they had a rocking chair strapped to the top of the trailer. My Four-legged says you think she would have been embarassed, but adds when she compares it to other things the Giant and my Two-legged have done, it rates low on the ‘pretend-I-don’t-know-them’ meter.

  41. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:38 pm on July 11th, 2013


    Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed
    A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed,
    Then one day he was shootin at some food,
    And up through the ground came a bubblin crude.

    Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea.

    Well the first thing you know ol Jed’s a millionaire,
    Kinfolk said “Jed move away from there”
    Said “Californy is the place you ought to be”
    So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly.

    Hills, that is. Swimmin pools, movie stars.

  42. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:39 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Rebecca!…Naw, I’ve given up that nasty habit for good…sniff!…Beau is always on Kat-Watch so there is nothing in my yard to roll on anymore…grunt!

  43. Barb & Maggie
    3:44 pm on July 11th, 2013

    T & G, I’m with you on the squirrels. Never have been able to catch one. They cheat – they run up into the crab apple trees and then hop on the roof. Not fair. Ground squirrels are another matter. They are more like a gopher or chipmunk. Do you have them out east?

    HOH, Years ago when the kids were little, Barb and her ex had a Winebago camper. Used it for horse shows and vacations. It was a nice way to travel. Slept 6 and had a kitchenette and a bath of sorts.

  44. Herd of Hounds
    3:46 pm on July 11th, 2013

    So we loaded up the truck and we moved to Tennessee!

    Hee, hee, hee.

  45. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:47 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Camper!…My friend has always wanted a camper…sniff!… Now I do too! I want to travel around in the mountains and sit by the campfire at night playing my harmonica…wheeze!…She says once she can sell my other house for a small profit, we are looking into a camper…heh!heh!..groovey!

  46. Herd of Hounds
    3:58 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Actually, the Daddy Dawg has always reminded us of (blast from the past) Walter Brennan in “The Real McCoys”. Either that of a fat ZZ Top.

  47. Belle Starr
    4:17 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Rio: It sounds like Beau is doing you a favor. The Giant is living in a camper this summer, but I don’t think he has a harmonica. Maybe I will get him a pink one.

  48. Herd of Hounds
    4:20 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Belle: Hope it is a giant camper, ya know?

  49. Belle Starr
    4:24 pm on July 11th, 2013

    HOH: Nope. It’s my size. My Two-legged says it is barely big enough for a Giant. It is a borrowed camper so we are thankful.

  50. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:35 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Bellie!…You should get someone to take a foto of The Giant beside the camper one day…snort!…I for one would love to see that…heh!

  51. B. Stover
    5:10 pm on July 11th, 2013

    I’m having a lovely glass of Cotes Du Rhone.

  52. Herd of Hounds
    5:14 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Whoo hoo, mom is thinking of joining you HRH B. Fleeing the fleas and itching has her thinking she earned one today.

  53. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:17 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Wine!….Coyotes Du Ruin!!…snort! ….Sounds like a great idea. Where is my beer bowl at anyways?..sniff!sniff!

  54. Siber-H
    5:29 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Rio, It did rain in the middle of the night and the water pooled on our roof. It is one of those flat roofed houses so popular in NM.

  55. Barb & Maggie
    5:29 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Speaking of beer, the Moose Drool was pretty good. I don’t think we remembered to report on it last week. It was a dark ale, almost looked like coke. The tase was fairly mild, not bitter or overpowering at all. Taasted more like beer than drool. Would give it a thumbs up.

  56. Belle Starr
    5:30 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Which is flatter?—SiberHs roof or Rio’s head? My money is on the pug.

  57. Mollypop's Mom
    5:31 pm on July 11th, 2013

    We are having fun here. It’s the annual HOG Rally! Woo hoo. HOG is for the Harley Owner’s Group and we have a million of them here right now and for all weekend.

  58. B. Stover
    5:31 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Let’s raise our glasses and bowls in a toast: To Chet and the Plunderers.

  59. Herd of Hounds
    5:36 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Le Chaim! (sp)

  60. Basil and Sage
    5:36 pm on July 11th, 2013

    What’s with all the derogatory comments about Kat poo? At least we have the courtesy to bury it – not like some dawgs we know.

    Mama used to have a camper that she just loved. They used to travel all over the country doing shows. At least 30 weekends a year, from New England to New Mexico. Sometimes she misses those days. Other times, she is awfully glad that they only do about 10 to 15 shows a year, and stay in hotels.

  61. Herd of Hounds
    5:52 pm on July 11th, 2013

    T&G: We understand. Mom’s friend did handmade soaps and lotions and the peeps would help with shows. Fun but exhausting. Aretha (mom’s first newf) used to lay around the booth and entice people in.

  62. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:53 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Wait!….My bowl is empty!…grunt!

  63. B. Stover
    5:59 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Get your bowl filled Rio.

  64. Riö – The Evil Pug
    6:06 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Gah!….I cannot till my friend gets home…sniff!…She says she is on her way…snort!

  65. Herd of Hounds
    6:07 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Like mom always says: the advantage of the opposing thumb. 🙁

  66. Wose
    6:23 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Has anyone watched the video posted on the right?

  67. B. Stover
    6:25 pm on July 11th, 2013

    We can wait Rio.

  68. Melanie
    6:30 pm on July 11th, 2013

    I am raising my bowl of cold sweet potato soup.

    To Chet and the Plunderers!

  69. Princess Sam
    6:31 pm on July 11th, 2013

    We don’t watch those sad things. We always end up crying and just being unhappy. We will skip it.

  70. B. Stover
    6:37 pm on July 11th, 2013

    I agree with Sam. I’m going to skip it.

    Melanie: I’ve never had sweet potato soup. Did you make it? (Potato soup is good. I use my grandmother’s recipe and it’s called Spudders.)

  71. Princess Sam
    6:45 pm on July 11th, 2013

    B., Isn’t that the potato soup recipe that you put into dishlickers?

  72. B. Stover
    6:48 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Sam: Yes it is. It’s really good.

  73. Barb & Maggie
    6:50 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Sam, we were just thinking the same thing, that it must be the recipe in Dishlickers.

  74. Tupper and Gilly
    6:57 pm on July 11th, 2013

    We are standing by to (figuratively) lift our glass of ice tea.

    Melanie – your soup sounds good, but we just never could wrap our heads around the idea of cold soup.

    Mama did make a tomato aspic the other day. It was pretty easy, and Gramp loved, loved, loved it.

    We are skipping the sad video too – you all know what a wuss Mama is.

  75. B. Stover
    7:08 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Vichyssoise (French potato soup) is usually served cold and it’s delish!

  76. Melanie
    7:22 pm on July 11th, 2013

    I cut 3 sweet potatoes in chunks. Added some chopped onion. (1/4 cup?).
    Cooked until soft. Then the peels came right off the sweet potatoes. That was cool.
    I put them in the refrigerator.
    While I was vacuuming the pool, Zoë boiled about 1 1/2 cups of stock. Put in refrigerator.
    After I finished vacuuming the pool, taking a shower and getting changed. I drained the sweet potatoes and the onions. Put them in the blender with some of the stock.
    VROOMMMM! I added some plain yogurt, more stock until it tasted right. VROOMMMM! Just before we sat down I added some feta cheese to the top.

    Very good.
    B.Stover, I remember your Spudders. We love it. Have you ever had it cold?

    Also the humidity level has DROPPED! No AC on. Windows open. Loverly.

  77. Melanie
    7:22 pm on July 11th, 2013

    I guess if you wanted to make this you wouldn’t have to vacuum a pool.

  78. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:28 pm on July 11th, 2013

    CHEERS!….My friend just filled my bowl and I am ready to toast Chet and the Plunderers!…snort!…The best damned group of online friends I’ve ever not met…chuffle!

  79. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:33 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Sniff!…Great, is everybody gone now?…snuffle!

    Hear, hear, Riö

  81. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:35 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Woooo!….Melanie is still here toasting…snort!

  82. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:36 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Gulp!…glug!glug!glug!…cough!…I did not want to toast alone…heh!

  83. B. Stover
    7:37 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Glasses raised!

    Thank you Melanie. I’ve never had Spudders cold but that’s an idea.

  84. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:40 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Ummmm!…I need a refill here and quick!…snort!

  85. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:46 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Ready!…I’m ready for another toast…snort!….But wait, suppers ready!….Woooooo!

  86. B. Stover
    7:51 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Rio: Will it be a toast or supper? Decisions, decisions….

  87. Barb & Maggie
    7:54 pm on July 11th, 2013

    We will join the toast too. Now off to dinner – grilled pork chop, fresh green beans and rosemary olive oil roasted potatoes.

  88. O'Howlers
    7:58 pm on July 11th, 2013

    We here are enjoying a lovely bottle of Sierra Nevada Torpedo (IPA). All that grass is finally mowed. Chorizo (sp?) sausage is on the grill.
    Here’s to the Plunderers! Clink!

  89. O'Howlers
    8:05 pm on July 11th, 2013

    So now that we are finally done all this farm work, you all left???

  90. B. Stover

    We watched that video Chet posted on the right. It isn’t sad, just teary in a good way.

  98. O'Howlers

    Right this very minute, our heat and humidity are packing their bags. A delightful breeze is taking their place.

  99. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:43 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Refill!….Can I have a refill?…sniff!…I might have something else to toast, or I might just want another slug o’ beer…heh!heh!

  100. O'Howlers

    Here you go, Rio…

  101. Barb & Maggie

    Night all, we are watching a movie then heading to bed.

  102. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Mom’s been flea free for several hours now. We always are thanks to mom taking care of us. On that note we are going nighty night.

    9:22 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Dawson!…I’m guessing you have to be invited to Wardynski’s barbeque…heh!heh!…And you have to behave yourself and beg nicely…sniff!

  114. Princess Sam
    9:38 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Dawson, daddy says that you’re on the wrong side of the country to be able to buy these wonderful things but you are welcome anytime to our house.

  115. dawson
    9:39 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Darn it! I wasn’t invited. I’ve had a very trying day dealing with Veterans Administration, Medicare nurses, and various bureaucrats. Capped off by a bee sting or two and so I decided that instead of going to the store for anchovies to make a Caesar salad, I would just order from the restaurant that makes really good ones. I rode the bike up in the dreadful heat and got the salads and when I got home there was no anchovies! Both Dad and I agree that Caesar salads must have anchovies. Grumpity, grump, grump, grump. I’m going to bed and hoping that tomorrow is a better day.

  116. dawson
    9:46 pm on July 11th, 2013

    But, but, but!
    Princess Sam: I’m not on any side. I’m smack dab in the middle!
    I’m neutral, I swear it!
    OleyHowlers, get me a chicken! Quick, I need some protein. Oh…forget it!

  117. Princess Sam
    9:47 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Dawson, you are so invited!

  118. dawson
    9:59 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Princess Sam: One of these days…

    Good Night All. G’day to Liz and Cricket from Down Under.

  119. Pancho & Lefty
    10:10 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Sorry we’re late. We, um, had to, uh, procure some bowls to fill and refill. Water—that’s our drink. And, beer—that’s the reason Rio gets up every afternoon. 😉

    We here are raising our dishes to all of youse for crossing us as your team, for making our dream possible, for joining us in the trail in spirit and being the loudest cheering section ever.

  120. Pancho & Lefty
    10:13 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Choosing not crossing. Damn Ipaw.

    We think Dawson needs the quilt draped over her shoulders. What a rough day and to end it with no anchovies. Unacceptable for our Noswad!

    10:50 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Wheeeeeze!…Hot walk tonight….gasp!…It got up to 100 degrees here and it is still hot out…choke!…But still we had to go walk after she watered and watered my garden…sniff!….She even picked some jalepenos, and other chili peppers….chuffle!…AND there are two new little bitty tomatoes on one of the potted tomato plants…heh!heh!…Now we can all quit worrying about that !

    Anchovies!….Any day would be a great day without anchovies…sniff!gurgle!…Those things are nasty …ewww!

  122. Pancho & Lefty
    10:51 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Where is everyone? Is it something we stole, er, said?

  123. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:54 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Pancho!…Don’t get yer panties in a ruffle…heh!…I am here now. All settled down for the evening in the basement with my friend and the Rockies vs Da Dodgers…snort!

  124. Pancho
    10:58 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Panties! I can’t speak for Lefty on the matter, but I’ve never been much for panties. Sans draws—thats my style.

  125. Melanie
    10:59 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Hi Pancho and Lefty, I see I missed Dawson by thattt much.

    I am trying to increase my intake of water.I don’t think I do as good a job of lapping it up like youse guys.

    I stay away from Riö’s beer.

    Dawson, at least I have never dealt with the VA. Heart surgeons on the other paw, think they are Dog. But that is a story for another day,


  126. Pancho
    11:01 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Oops! My Lady says I shouldn’t speak of such matters in polite company. Delicate sensibilities and all that. I say it’s not polite company—it’s Rio. What does she say?—“You got a point.”

  127. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:02 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Draws?…snort!…What are draws?…sniff!

  128. Pancho
    11:04 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Rio: When said and unmentionables.

    Melanie: My apologies. You ARE polite company.

  129. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:04 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Melanie!….You better stay away from my beer(s)…sniff!…Or else!…something.

  130. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:06 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Thread!…I think I’ve lost the thread to the panties and drawers…heh!heh!…Probably a good thing….burp!

  131. Pancho
    11:07 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Rio: It started when you told me not to get my panties in a ruffle.

    My Lady is getting ready to board the plane and then she will be home with us, us, us!

  132. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:09 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Rebecca!…Safe flight Home to all the renegades…snort!snort!…And the Littles…sniffle!…Awww the Littles…heh!

  133. Pancho & Lefty
    11:09 pm on July 11th, 2013

    I think we need to put a HTD (Hobbit Tracking Device) on CHH. We can’t keep up with her these days.

  134. Pancho & Lefty
    11:12 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Rio: Those Littles have been outsmarting her all week. With four of them against one, she doesn’t stand a chance.

  135. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:18 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Pancho!…And Lefty, youse guys stay away from the Littles…sniff!…Your talents are needed else where. Like procuring more tangled rope, or random pieces of wood…sniff!…The Littles are in good paws with Rebecca…grunt!

  136. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    11:45 pm on July 11th, 2013

    Clink. I’m a little late for the official toast but Who cares! To Snowhook! And to the Plunderers!

    And to baby Jace, who is on the way!

    Along with ‘plunder on’ I think our motto should be ‘dam iPaw!’

    Nitey nite, I have to get mom to bed, she is going to her vet in the a.m. So she has to get dressed before noon.

    12:58 am on July 12th, 2013

    I went to a quilt class in the huge metropolis of Glyndon MN tonight. Didn’t get home until 11:30 and then had to catch up.
    Bottoms up to all you toasters and toastettes.

    And goodnight to all.

  140. Pancho & Lefty
    1:22 am on July 12th, 2013

    Wolfie: We can help babysit since Rio has made the Littles off limits.

  141. Luna
    3:31 am on July 12th, 2013

    Wolfie: Mama Luna, here. No need to worry. I’ve already pulled out the big ‘DENIED’ stamp for the Thieves’ offer to babysit. Now, I on the other paw, can be trusted to babysit.

    Nighty noodles.
