Costco And Us

“Good news,” Spence says. “Dog On It is the July Pennie’s Pick at Costco. And all the other books in the series will be there too.”

“Very nice,” says Admin. “And you can pick up a bottle of wine at the same time – Costco’s one of the biggest wine sellers in the world.”

“Cahors, do you think?”

“Nothing would surprise me.”

“What about if spiders started speaking?”

“Now you’re scaring me.”

    Heh, Heh You guys are cracking me up!
    Good Sunday Morning Everyone.
    It’s going to be a Good Day.

    Barking spiders? Oops.

    Spiders . . Talking . . . Costco is actually where Charlotte lives?
    I can just see it. A web over SQ’s books . . “Some Author!”

    I see the Herbs are out of the bag! (Why would you want to put Kats in a bag anyway?)

    The Pink Bulldozer strikes again! Cool. The last thing I knew was Bella was going to try to come up here after the conference and before she went to see her parents.

    Videoing . . . I’ll have to get my flip back from those that are married and took it on their honeymoon. Sounds good to me.

    I think it would be great if YSAS could come up then too. But I believe he is filming things.

    AUCTION! I have three things for the AUCTION! One of a kind things! One is from GLAD and the other is from OTAS. The other is a surprise.

    I’m trying to think of something from YSAS but my brain is tired. My garden push has done tuckered me out!

    Good Beautiful Morning from here in Western MA!

    Melanie beat me to it with her Charlotte’s Web reference. I was going to say, of course spiders speak! Ny very favorite story as a kid.

    Now to the cat out of the bag reference. Goes back to medieval England. Venders would sell a “pig in a polk” which was a small piglet in a sack. Sometimes they would substitute a cat which was about the same size (and umm, sorry to say, not considered of equal value). If the buyer didn’t look until he got home, he was taken. Thus started the saying Never buy a pig in a polk, and Don’t let the cat out of the bag. Just call me Bee!

    Definitely no Cahors at Costco.

    Good morning all.

    Hey Barb, that’s really interesting!

    Rio: You’da thunk the M’s would have won it just ’cause we were there, but NOooooo.
    Royals & Herbs: Still thinking about the exciting news from yesterday. Your mama is a force to be reckoned with, and, as Rio says, some sort of magician.
    B&M: Interesting how those old expressions come about.

    Excellent SQ. This is a weekend filled with good news. There is always a crowd around the book table when we’re at Costco. Chet will have a huge group of new friends.

    Melanie – waiting not so patiently for BE season 3 and YSAS.

    Happy Sunday all.

    10:26 am on June 10th, 2012

    Thanks Barb and MagPie!

    Rosalyn’s temperature is normal, but she is NOT eating. Finally remembered we had high protein gel for mamas during whelping. So we’re giving her that in very small portions. A little dab will do ya.

    I also took her down to the river for a dip. I wasn’t sure if she was going to come out.
    We were taking her to the groomers to get her sheered, but she is not well enough for that this week. So it’s Mac (or as the groomer calls him, the Macster) and Grace.

    Time to water things. Must find my cocoa though. I know it’s somewhere around here.

  10. Barb & Maggie
    10:30 am on June 10th, 2012

    Melanie, How old is Ros?

  11. B.Stover
    10:31 am on June 10th, 2012

    I just finished watering the garden. (Melanie–your garden is lovely!) It was 91 here yesterday and looks like it will be that again today. Yuck! I’ll be staying in the AC.

  12. Melanie
    10:38 am on June 10th, 2012

    Rosalyn is seven. Her bloodwork is okay. No infection, no nasty diseases. Probably a virus.

  13. Siber-H
    10:41 am on June 10th, 2012

    This is very good news about Costco. All people have to do is read the first book, Dog On It, and they are fans for life.

  14. Tupper and Gilly
    10:45 am on June 10th, 2012

    Good morning all – Mama is starting an I V with coffee – something about needing to get 3 months work into 3 weeks. So? Thats kind of how her life goes all the time.

    Melanie – glad to hear Ros’;s temp is ok. Still doing prayers for her to get back to feeling tip top.

    Hey – how come OUR Costco doesn’t sell wine? (said in a whining voice)

    Barb – I always wondered about that. Thanks for the info. And how hunky is the hunk?

  15. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    10:51 am on June 10th, 2012

    The dinner was last night, wasn’t it? We want all the details!

  16. Siber-H
    10:56 am on June 10th, 2012

    Wolfie, We have to wait. It isn’t till the end of June.
    A live stream from it would be great, but I know I am wishing for too much.

  17. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    11:18 am on June 10th, 2012

    I have some good news regarding my boy Cody! He has taken a 180* turn. And Cody, being Cody, has gone way, way over in the opposite direction. He has become a bible thumping, soap box standing, TV denouncing nutcase. Gotta love him. He has all the answers from the Internet and knows everything. I’ll be glad when this stage passes. I am grateful that he is sober, I really am.

  18. Melanie
    11:22 am on June 10th, 2012

    I FORGOT! The hunk and the VET Aide. HOW’D IT GO?

    Oh, Wölife, I’m glad? Well, about the sober part for sure.

  19. Rose
    11:30 am on June 10th, 2012

    Good Sunday Morning All!

    Wolfie, that is such good news about Cody’s sobriety! As always, you know my prayers and strong thoughts for his good health are with you and yours!

    Charlotte’s Web, (sigh) is one among my many favorite childhood books!

    Let’s go Yankees!

  20. Rose
    11:32 am on June 10th, 2012

    Oh, and Rio, please don’t make us worry about you again today…
    My poor little heart can’t take it!

  21. Siber-H
    11:32 am on June 10th, 2012

    Wolfie, I am grateful also and this new stage will smooth itself out. It is helping him stay sober and that is what is important right now.

    Barb? I have the same question as Melanie…how did it go?

  22. OleyHowlers
    11:43 am on June 10th, 2012

    Happy Sunday everyone! We just weeded the garden. Whew that was a job!
    Wolfie, we agree with Siber. Good that Cody is sober, and if the bible stuff is helping him with that now, thats a good thing. It will smooth over in the future.
    Prayers and hugs here for Ros.
    Very interesting about Pig in a Polk, and letting the Cat out of the Bag. But Buddy and T.C. are in a snit about not being as valuable as a pig.
    Melanie, good news about auction items from Glad. We are in love with her halter painting here…pondering.

  23. Basil and Sage
    11:51 am on June 10th, 2012

    Howlers – its not that we’re not as valuable as a silly pig – its that we don’t make as good a Sunday roast.

  24. Barb & Maggie
    11:53 am on June 10th, 2012

    Well, it was an interesting and fun evening, but not a big connection for the young couple. I think the biggest thing they had in common was that they each have 3 cats.

    He is an extremely nice, intelligent, polite young man. He is a glass blower by profession, and he brought Barb a little bud vase that he had made as a gift for staying here. Very thoughtful. He is sort of a hippie, with dreads that are wrapped up to look like shorter hair. He is a health food advocate (don’t want to say nut), a vegetarian, grows a garden and cooks. Avid cyclist, races almost every weekend in the summer, has gone to Durango, Co. to ride, has world traveled. Cool guy. Barb had a lot to talk to him about.
    Jordan is very cute, but I don’t think she cooks or is particularly interested in gardening. Not sure about sports, but I would say she is not super active. Two nice people, but I don’t see a love connection.

    Wolfie, Good news about Cody, at least the sober part. Sometimes when people are missing something and give up an addiction, they go off the deep end over something. Maybe religion will be his answer and fill whatever void he needs to fill.

  25. Buddy
    12:00 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Thanks for clearing that up Basil and Sage. I’m feeling much better now. Lets not let T.C. in on this though…it is so much fun to watch her pout.

  26. BearSpiritDog
    12:09 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: The Dog Who Danced will be heading your way tomorrow. We are finishing the last pages tonight. Like Wolfie said yesterday, it is one of those books you can read in one sitting. Barb is going to love it!
    About your favorite son’s bike ride yesterday…how did it go?

    Wolfie: We are praying Chad will be following in Cody’s footsteps with the sobriety and that your mom will be back in his good graces very soon.

    Melanie: Prayers, too, for Ros to be feeling tip top. Glad you found the protein to use until she gets her appetite back.
    An item from YSAS? A pawtographed photo would do nicely!

  27. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    12:10 pm on June 10th, 2012

    I know that things will even out and I am relieved. But I finally told Cody that I have my own beliefs, and that there is absolutely no way that he will EVER convince me that the twin towers were bombed by the US government to create a new world order, or that Obama is an agent of the devil, or the Illuminati is taking over the world. His beliefs are radical and off putting.

  28. Basil and Sage
    12:23 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Wolfie – it would almost be tempting to tell him that you have found your spiritual connection by worshipping trees, or rocks or butterflies or somesuch.
    Oh well – as long as he is sober. This could just be a new “addiction” that fills a void for a while.

  29. Barb & Maggie
    12:23 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Wolfie, You are right, that is a little off putting and scary!

    T & G, We went back and read all the posts about your big meeting end of June. That is totally exciting. This blog and its members never cease to amaze me.

    Barb agrees with Amalia, never could do public speaking. Her worst nighmares are where she dreams that she is about to go on stage. Yikes!

    Brian just called after his morning race. He is stopping back by here to shower, get some eggs and have a grilled cheese before heading back. There were about 2,000 racers this weekend at the Tour de Galena. 50 in his group this morning, and he finished 7th. Not bad.

    Josh did a 30 mile ride yesterday. He and Brian may tackle the 90 mile ride out here sometime this summer. That’s a big maybe.

    12:26 pm on June 10th, 2012

    BSD, We were never actually on the list to receive that book, but we will be happy to receive it. Are you sure, tho, that it is not supposed to go somewhere else?

  31. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    12:32 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Barb, yes, someone else spoke for the book, and I thought it was you. Maybe it was the Howlers?

  32. Melanie
    12:48 pm on June 10th, 2012

    I’m still waiting to find out where to send “Winterdance” and “Ice Palace Murders”.

    Putter, putter, putter . . what a great way to spend a Sunday.

  33. Barb & Maggie
    1:14 pm on June 10th, 2012

    I would like Ic Palace Murders back when everyone else who wants to, has read it. I think Bee got it on Kindle, not sure if anyone else spoke up. It’s a great Sherlock Holmes novel.

  34. Gus & BooBear
    1:22 pm on June 10th, 2012

    We are goin to try to upload a picture of Rio’s friends quilling that we bought now that we have it hung. Hope Mom doesn’t mess this up.

  35. Gus & BooBear
    1:25 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Mom said it was hard to get a good picture without getting a glare from the glass on the frames .

    Melanie, Mom is sending you a couple of pics for you to do your magic with. Couple more donations for Snowhook.

  36. Melanie
    1:36 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Riö’s Friend’s picture is beautiful.

    Gus and BooBear, check your SDD.

    Must shut eyes just for a tad.

  37. Riö –The Evil Pug
    1:40 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Yeep!….I didn’t think i would ever make to the computer today…grunt!…Someone has been way too busy this morning and I had to wait at the door with Beau till she got back…snort!

    Rebecca!…I have a feeling Rebecca is a very experienced public speaker and she will wow!wow!wow! the big!big!big! crowd of wealthy people that Golinka rounds up for the event…snorkel!…I don’t foresee any Splorting going on before the big Do!…heh!

    Puss N’ Boots!… I hope the hook you are hanging that quilling with will not come out…yeep!…It wasn’t the best part of that frame thats for sure…grunt!

  38. Riö –The Evil Pug
    1:42 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Upstairs!..Now we have to run upstairs and finish some awesome spaghetti sauce…heh!…then we have to get the laundry out of the dryer and finish that…sniff!…Then she has to do something else that involves an hour of walking….yeep!

  39. Siber-H
    1:57 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Gus&BooBear, The quilling looks perfect there. I enlarged the photo and the detail in the quilling shows up good.

    I agree with Rio. Rebecca will not have any problems and will not splort.

  40. Gus & BooBear
    2:07 pm on June 10th, 2012

    SiberH, wish we could get a picture that shows how perfect the colors in the quilling goes with the sepia flowers in the other two prints. Mom thinks it is just perfect.

  41. Gus & BooBear
    2:08 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Well, that was an overload of the word “perfect.” But that is what it is.

  42. BearSpiritDog
    2:28 pm on June 10th, 2012

    G&BooBear: Great photo of the quilling. I love the colors.

    Barb: Oh no! I thought it was you. If not you then who? You would enjoy the book and if no one speaks up in a day or so, we’ll send it your way. In the meantime will do some digging.

  43. Kirby T. Penworthy
    2:44 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Good afternoon, y’all! Grandma goes to Costco all the time — she’s always telling Mom about these great bargains she gets there. Unfortunately, there aren’t any Costcos around here. 🙁 The closest one is about 60 miles away — to far to drive even for a bargain! Oh, well.

  44. BearSpiritDog
    3:04 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Costco is a great place to shop in bulk.

    Maggie: Please tell Barb to check her SDD.

  45. Riö –The Evil Pug
    3:06 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Ooooo-hhhhh!…Melanie! Check your SDD for some new stuff….snort!snort!

  46. Riö –The Evil Pug
    3:09 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Pictures!…How ever does Puss N’ Boots hang their photos so evenly and straight??…snort!…I think every single one of her mother’s frames hanging up is crooked…heh!heh!…Drives someone here crazy…sniff!

  47. Rose
    3:12 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Gus & BooBear: The quilling is lovely, and looks right at home with the other pictures on the wall!

  48. Gus & BooBear
    3:15 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Rio, just don’t look behind the pictures to see the many tiny nail holes in the wall!! Drives Dad crazy, but Mom wants them hung just so. And she is a Trial and Error kind of person so if its not right the first time, she just puts another hole in the wall. Nobody sees that anyway…it’s hidden behind the pic!

  49. Melanie
    3:20 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Rio, got them! Will get to them tonight. There is not enough chocolate in the world right now to wake me up.

    Here’s one of the staged readings YSAS is doing this week. A staged reading is a reading of the play on a blank stage with the actors acting but using scripts.

    Hmmm. well that didn’t work. So here’s the wording from the flyer . . .

    a full length play
    Terri Campion*
    Directed by Elowyn Castle**
    When Jimmy Davish returns home from a twelve month tour in Iraq a day early, he finds a stranger in a smoking jacket much too comfortable in his living room. Fortunately his mother Bea, a hair salon owner, arrives shortly thereafter, and he learns that this odd person with a flair for domestic and assorted arts is her fiancé. War Wounds takes place over the first thirty six hours of Jimmy’s homecoming in small town America, October 2005.

    Bear, do we have any patches, magnets or bumper stickers left?

    If so, perhaps we can send them to the Royal’s mum the big talk. They can go on the back table at the big talk.

  52. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    3:40 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Bella, this is totally random, but does Snowhook have any business cards? I am thinking that I can make some organic doggie biskits, attach a card, and sell those at the big talk also.

    What do youse guys think?

  53. Snowhook Bella
    3:43 pm on June 10th, 2012

    I keep telling myself that have to do better than Bernie and channel that great YSAS. Gulp.

    Golinka: I was thinking this was going to be a small room that seats 20 or 30 people. Not 200. Double gulp.

    How about it not get filmed and then I bribe the Plunderers in attendance to tell all youse how wonderful the event was?

    The quilling looks wonderful on G&B’s wall.

  54. OleyHowlers
    4:01 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Rebecca, Mom says that when you are speaking about something with which you are familiar and which you love, it is easy to speak, no matter the size of your crowd. And, if you take questions early on, that helps break the ice also. Maybe get a friendly participant to plan a question or two.

  55. Snowhook Bella
    4:07 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Garcia told me if I was nervous, imagine everyone without their collars. Belle Starr then started giggling.

  56. BearSpiritDog
    4:09 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Wolfie: Great minds think alike! We are in the process of sending off a SDD to Golinka as we speak.

  57. Riö –The Evil Pug
    4:14 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Speech!…Seems to me Stinky Mama will have to make a short speech too because she will have to introduce Rebecca to the huge crowd….snort!…Unless of course they can get Wookie to MC the whole affair….chuffle!

  58. Riö –The Evil Pug
    4:16 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Time!….Too bad this thing is only a few weeks away…sniff!…My friend said if she had more time she could make some quilling projects to sell at the Big Talk Table…snort!…Not enough time each weekend to get all she wants made, made…wheeze!

  59. Rose
    4:21 pm on June 10th, 2012

    The lovely Maggie is up top!

    Rebecca, with all the Plunderers channeling good thoughts to you, you are going to hit it out of the ballpark!!

  60. Masquers
    4:26 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Bella: That Garcia is a wise one. His remark about the collars was very helpful 🙂

  61. Melanie
    4:28 pm on June 10th, 2012

    I love the idea of Wöökie MCing.

    Back from the groomers. Grace and Mac look years younger . . snicker

    The groomer also gave me thyme and chives to plant. The question is where?

  62. Riö –The Evil Pug
    4:35 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Walk!….My friend says she is going for a long walk without me and Beau….WoooooHooooo!…She says she needs a break from all of us. Beau is in trouble because he chewed the nose off of one of his best toys…sniff!

  63. Riö –The Evil Pug
    4:37 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Repair!…She had to repair it using Duck-Tape…chorkel!

  64. Gus & BooBear
    4:40 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Well, if it is his toy……

  65. BearSpiritDog
    4:40 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Awww, it doesn’t look so bad. Toys are meant to be chewed…right, Beau?
    MC Wookie…has a nice ring to it.

  66. Melanie
    4:56 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Laughing here!

  67. Snowhook Bella
    5:14 pm on June 10th, 2012

    It looks as if Beau’s toy is being held for ransom.

  68. Barb & Maggie
    5:54 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Rio, Tell your friend that I remove eyes and noses from every stuffed toy the minute it arrives here. I don’t want anything staring at me when I decide to rip out all its insides.

  69. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:55 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Toys!…You should see his bear – the one he loves – its eyes and the tip of its nose are missing…sniff!…Then theres the mouse his neck is taped up. I think you guys saw that one….grunt!… All of my toys are in tip-top shape and he will never get his pearly whites on them…grufff!

  70. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:03 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Casserole!….Someone has to go and make a casserole now…grunt!…I will have to watch the end of this great game on the little bitty tv up stairs…wuffle!

  71. Rose
    6:16 pm on June 10th, 2012

    I’m laughing out loud here. I had the same thought as Rebecca….All Beau’s toy needs now is a ransom note. I can’t stop laughing at Maggie’s comment. It makes for a very funny visual.

    Oh, and what a sweep by the Yankees!

  72. Melanie
    6:19 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Riö, what happened to the spaghetti sauce?

  73. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:38 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Sauced!…The spaghetti sauce is for tomorrow…sniff!…Someone here hurt her back because she couldn’t wait for my friend to help her so someone else is making food ahead or they would both be eating cottage cheese all week…heh!heh!

  74. BearSpiritDog
    6:40 pm on June 10th, 2012

    We are going to watch a movie (The Note) before supper.

  75. Melanie
    6:47 pm on June 10th, 2012

    That would be cottage cheese with green onions. Well, your friend would love that!

    All the chores done. Whew.

    Rosalyn is eating and drinking water again. Double whew.

    Dawson, check your SDD!

  76. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:57 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Jipped!… Well the Rockies were jipped out of that game…grunt!…I really believe they could have won it in those last few minutes…sniff!…Damned Umpire was not paying attention and gave the game to the Angels…grumble!grrrrroooowl!

  77. Alice M. Johnson
    7:01 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Laughing out loud at Beau’s ‘pet’.
    I have a little stuffed fish that is made of pink and yellow fabric. When I feel lonely I take it upstairs while making a growly sound deep in my throat. Sort of an “Oh me oh my I am so sad and lonely” sound.
    Sometimes I do it at night. Sometimes I do it if ‘they’ have gone away or if I think they have gone away.

    It always makes Staff call to me and tell me they are here. (Unless of course, they aren’t.)

    I think the idea’s of stuff to sell in the back of the room is a good idea.

    Going off to look at the mushers mercantile…

  78. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:07 pm on June 10th, 2012

    Painting! I painted the hallway last night and have been working all day to paint the kitchen. The stairway is next on my list. AJ and I are trying to fix up the house before Coach arrives.

    Rio: Do you think we could ask Wookie to pick you up and drive you to a certain event at the end of the month?

    Our goal is to no look like we still live college students to Coach. Word has a way of getting back to a certain mother. Said mother tends to worry.

    Wow! Let me try that again: Our goal is to not look like we still live like college students in the eyes of Coach.

    Coach has only visited us in the winter right before the race.

    Gotta to love that iPaw!

    Okay, headed to bed. Tomorrow starts early. Won’t be back until afternoon. Pool guys and then Dan. Maybe even go out to eat lunch!

    Bella, did you get your homework from me this morning. If you have all ready told me you have, ignore this.

    Riö, check your SDD!

    Hi everybody, just checking in here. So much exciting news having been reported, one doesn’t know where to begin. I think I will just say, wow, wow and wow!
    Mom and dad, with my capable assistance, had a relatively quiet but very enjoyable celebration of their 34th anniversary today.
    My toys tend to be in pretty good shape. My friend Casey, however, would really shred toys whenever he had a chance. I lost a few good toys that way too, but I didn’t mind too much. He always just had a lot of nervous energy.
    We actually had our first zucchini (it’s the round type, not sure what they are called). This is the earliest ever. And tomatoes are actually starting to set on the Bloody Butcher plant. It will still be a while I’m sure before they mature into real ripe tomatoes, but they are definitely off to a good start.
    I love the idea of being the MC, but I may have to settle for honorary MC. The Wookiemobile is still under repair and I am just not sure when it will be ready.

    Wookie!…Don’t tell me the Hot Wing cooker blew the Wookiemobiles electrical system….wheeze!…I knew we shouldn’t have cooked that last batch with the extra Hot Hot Sauce…sneeze!

    Wookie: Happy 34th Anniversary to your folks! You don’t think the wookiemobile was mechanically compromised at the last party when it was taken for a bit of off-roading?

    Good evening ladies and gentlemen.
    (We are practicing for the emcee role – Mama says no way in h e double toothpicks is she getting up in front of two hundred thousand people and talk. It WAS two hundred thousand, right? We have kind of a hard time with numbers past the two part)

    Bella – if you are still talking to us – we just sent some things to the store. Once they are received and inventoried, you can put them on the shelves.

    Mama says she hopes we aren’t building up too much expectations for the big night. She is going to do a lot of advertising, and the room does hold 200, but who knows how many will come. We think there will be lots, and we really want them to buy every single thing on the back of the room tables.

    Bear and Wolfie – SDD received – thank you and bless you both.

    Sleepy Melanie – Thank Dog that Ros is starting to feel better. Poor puppy has been through a ruff time.

    Siber and Rio – you have our condolences on the fate of the Rockies. Maybe you should become fans of something that is less of a gamble – like a knitting competition.

    Oh well – the time has come to do paperwork and pay bills. We have put it off as long as possible. Maybe we will finish up at a reassonable time and be back.

    Yeah sure – and maybe a handsome stranger will come knock on our door and hand us a winning lottery ticket.

    We are checking in quickly and then saying good night.

    We got a call that an agent wanted to show the house this evening. Sunday evening is unusual, but didn’t want to turn it down. We were told 30-40 min. would be sufficient, so we picked up a pizza and came back after 1 hour. They were just leaving at 7:30. Hopefully that was a good sign. Paws crossed, but we have said that so many times we hate to say it again!

    Sweet dreams everyone.

    Barb – we are more than happy to cross our paws for you. Maybe the giant sign is already working.

    Patio!…We’ve been outside on the patio enjoying the cool breeze and snuffling the grass…snort!…Beau’s new thing is to piss on the peppers. This really annoys someone….grunt!…Luckily there are no peppers on the pepper plants and he can only “reach” one of them on the corner…heh!heh!
