Costco Update

“Dog On It is the Costco Pennie’s Pick for August,” Spence says.

“We know that already,” says Admin. “Ad nauseum.”

“What we haven’t mentioned is that Costco is now carrying all the books in the series,” Spence says.

“So when you’re picking up wine – Costco sells a lot of wine – you can also … ?”

“Exactly. You can also dot dot dot.”

Welcome Bindi, Sparky, Mindy, Bruno, Jericho.

    Good a.m. We don’t have a Costco nearby and, if we did, they couldn’t sell wine. 🙁

    Good morning all. Sitting here in my office 80 feet below ground in Tribeca, listening to the subways rumbling over my head. Just seven more commutes to the city, but who’s counting.

    Mom called. She is sitting in the allergist’s waiting room, and everybody is sneezing!

    Rio! I saw your post last night. I guess youse Rockies fans and Mets fans feel each other’s pain, being many games behind. The Yankees, on the other hand (dot,dot,dot)

    OHs: Keeping my fingers crossed for your mom that tomatoes are not the culprit. The Prof has so many allergies, I think he is allergic to life!

    Rose – since I grew up in Arizona and didn’t move east until 1990, I didn’t feel like I had to pick one team to the exclusion of the other. I root for both. Most days there’s something to feel good about.

    Dawson!….Did you get your media mail yet – huh? Did you?…sniff!

    10:17 am on August 21st, 2012

    Okay … There are two emails in our email account. Please read one before reading Dan’s Story.

    Terry, YSAS lives further down than Tribeca. Can’t remember what the area is called, but he can walk to Chinatown.

    10:21 am on August 21st, 2012

    Melanie!…When you say Email you mean dishlickers, don’t you? Not everyones personal email….grunt!…For those with memory problems, go to put “dishlickers” in as the username. If you can’t remember the password send an emergency SDD to someone you know and they will give it to you…wheeze!

    I don’t know what dot dot dot means and I don’t know what Dawson’s Ellipsis means.
    It is good that Costco is selling all the books.

    duh, Rio will you please SDD me the password.

    Good Morning Everyone!

    Hi Rio, my hunk of burning pug!

    Terry, my pop was a big-time Yankees fan, so his kids grew up that way. Honestly, I’m a native New Yorker, so I root for all the New York teams (even when they play in New Jersey!)

  23. B.Stover
    10:48 am on August 21st, 2012

    An ellipsis is usually used when quoting a source. It shows that you have left some words out. I sometimes use an ellipsis when I’m “pondering.” Spence is using it to mean “fill in the blank.”

  24. Masquers
    10:50 am on August 21st, 2012

    Last night we watched The Fan which was directed by the late Tony Scott and of course authored by our own PA. Excellent all-star cast lead by Robert De Niro.
    For those of you who have also read the book…what did you think of the movie interpretation?
    Alice: Thank you for the Phyllis Diller link. She was a pioneer in standup comedy.
    Riö: BB! You are all caught up. We here just finished episode #2.
    Going now to read Dan’s short story.

  25. Melanie
    10:51 am on August 21st, 2012

    Yes, I meant Dishlickers. Sorry a bit tired (again) today. I am seriously thinking of decaf coffee . . .

  26. B.Stover
    10:51 am on August 21st, 2012

    I was being facetious in using the ellipsis in my first comment (8:49 AM).

  27. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:52 am on August 21st, 2012

    Stover!…I thought dot!dot!dot! meant “Buy My Books”…heh!heh!

  28. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:53 am on August 21st, 2012

    Stover!…Not in your post, in Chet’s post…snort!…Which brings up a good question, does Chet ever really post anymore?…grunt!

  29. Melanie
    10:53 am on August 21st, 2012

    Just heard from Golinka and Storyteller. They are open and have made their first sale.

    May it be the first of all their art work . .

    I am using dot dot dot today because it’s fun.

  30. B.Stover
    10:57 am on August 21st, 2012

    Rio: As I mentioned, Spence is using it to mean “Fill in the blank.” You filled it in with “Buy my books.” (And Costco also sells beer.)

  31. B.Stover

    Does anyone morse code? …

  32. B.Stover
    11:00 am on August 21st, 2012

    Should be: Does anyone know morse code? …

  33. B.Stover
    11:03 am on August 21st, 2012

    Which reminds me…I ordered a case of different Merlots…not from Costco…. (The forth dot is a period ending the sentence.)

  34. Siber-H
    11:03 am on August 21st, 2012

    Thanks for the explanation Stover.

    Best of luck to the Royals!

    I only know how to do SOS in morse code. It is dot dot dot dash dash dash dot dot dot.

  37. B.Stover
    11:13 am on August 21st, 2012

    What did Melanie just write? (I don’t know morse code….)

  38. Melanie
    11:14 am on August 21st, 2012

    Snicker . . . I wrote “No I do not. But I found a translator.”

    B.Stover: Do you need a period after dot dot dot?

    SiberH: That’s all the morse code I know as well. SOS.

    Rio: No!

    Melanie: Oh boy! I have to go grocery shopping first but I am happily anticipating reading Dan’s short story this afternoon.

  42. Melanie
    11:20 am on August 21st, 2012

    And a tired looking Storyteller. I think they are glad that all they have to do is sit and sell!

  43. Melanie
    11:25 am on August 21st, 2012

    Snigglefritz, I can’t get Stover’s message to translate.

  44. B.Stover
    11:26 am on August 21st, 2012

    Dawson: I don’t believe that morse code uses punctuation though I’m not positive. (The ellipsis and forth dot ending a sentence is following MLA–Modern Language Association–documentation style.)

    The Wikipedia article gives the dots and dashes of morse code for letters and numbers:

  45. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:26 am on August 21st, 2012

    Blanks!….Awwww! So the Dot!Dot!Dot! could mean, “Buy Rio Beer”…snort!…I like this fill-in-the-blanks thing…heh!

  46. B.Stover
    11:27 am on August 21st, 2012

    Melanie: The translation is, “Who invented baseball?”

  47. Barb & Maggie
    11:29 am on August 21st, 2012

    It tires me out just thinking about all the set up for the show! Good luck to them at the reeelly big shew!

    I don’t think The Fan got good reviews. Tony Scott just jumped off a bridge last weekend and killed himself. Seems he had brain cancer. He and his brother Ridley Scott were well known directors.

  48. Tupper and Gilly

  50. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:33 am on August 21st, 2012

    Bears!…I love the Golinka Bears!…snort!…Especially the little black one with his little jacket on in the front right corner of the photo…snorkel!…I wonder how much he costs? Maybe I could buy that for someone for Christmas out of my treatie budget….hmmmm!

  51. Alice M. Johnson
    11:36 am on August 21st, 2012

    The name Abner Doubleday rings a bell. I don’t know if it is the right bell.

  52. Siber-H
    11:36 am on August 21st, 2012

    Thanks for the photos, Melanie. Mom would love to be there in person to look at all their art. We love the bears.
    The Royals need their own website.

  53. Masquers
    11:41 am on August 21st, 2012

    B&M: Thanks for the input. If y’all noticed, yesterday morning Spence & Admin gave a tip of the hat to Tony Scott.
    I know Wookie has mentioned how much he enjoyed reading The Fan…Riö too.

    Melanie: Dan has written an unforgettable short story. It brought a tear to our eyes. Thank you so much for posting it.

    According to this Wikipedia article, Alexander Cartwright is credited with inventing baseball. (And we’re on page two already…shows the power of the ellipsis.)

    OlyeHowlers, Peppers, Tomatoes, Feta Cheese? Looks great!

  57. Melanie
    11:53 am on August 21st, 2012

    Been a difficult time lately. Probably why I’m so tired. But I wanted to post this because to me it is so true. From Leonard Cohen.

    ‘Ring the bells that still can ring
    forget your perfect offering
    there’s a crack in everything
    that’s how the light gets in.’

  58. Siber-H
    11:53 am on August 21st, 2012

    Fellow Sibers, Does this mean your mom is not allergic to tomatoes?

    Masquers, The Fan is our second favorite PA book, but we have not seen the movie.

  59. Barb & Maggie
    11:56 am on August 21st, 2012

    Rio, We love the black bear too!

    Oley, We knew it would not be tomatoes. Does she know what culprit is?

    Back later, have to run into town for a bit.

  60. OleyHowlers
    11:58 am on August 21st, 2012

    Melanie, those are just 2 different kinds of tomatoes (Brandywines and Jubilee) with mozerella, basil, oil and balsamic. Woo hoo! Mom is NOT allergic to tomatoes, nor any other of the 39 foods they tested on her.

    We read Dan’s story. Amazingly poignant. He still has great humor and perspective, Melanie.

  61. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:00 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Howlers!…Its probably that fancy beer she drinks…snort!…She should stick to Bud Light…sniff!

  62. OleyHowlers
    12:02 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Ha ha Rio! Funny! Mom says that if she ever drank a Bud Lite, she is sure she would break out all over. Heh heh

  63. Siber-H
    12:03 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Rio, I am surprised you don’t drink Coors Light. I love their commercials during the Rockies games with the train and the snow.

  64. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:05 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Coors!…gah!…Not really my favorite…snort!…Her brother worked for Coors all his working life. He drinks all my Bud Light when he is at our house…grump!

  65. Wookie of Chevy Chase

    So much going on here, it’s hard to keep everything straight.

    Going back to yesterday, I can report that I have a tattoo myself. It was put on by GRREAT (the rescue organization that rescued me) as a form of identification; that was before microchips were popular for that purpose. While it wasn’t so great getting it, it still is very, very special, because that was the reason my foster mom had brought me to the GRREAT adoption day event where I found my forever mom and dad. If I hadn’t been brought in for the tattoo that day, I may never have have found them and they may never have found me.

    Dan’s story is just terrific and Melanie, thanks for the back story too. We still think White Wings is one the best novels we have ever read.

    My dad used to know Morse Code back in the day when he was in the boy scouts. But that was a long time ago; all he remembers now are about the first five or six letters and SOS of course.

    Good news from OH on the tomato front (is there any chance your mom just got a really bad case of poison ivy; my dad can swell up like that from poison ivy as well), and from Golinka and the Storyteller. Their setup looks first rate.

    As for favorite beers, that is easy. Our favorite (brewed in NH) is calyed Smuttynose Old Brown Dog Ale.


  66. Rose
    12:37 pm on August 21st, 2012

    OHs: Good news about your mom!

    Wookie, I love the story of your tattoo!

    Rio, I’ve got my eye on that green bear. Prof and I will be meeting the Royals on Saturday. You want that black bear?

  67. BearSpiritDog
    12:38 pm on August 21st, 2012

    O.Howlers: That dish got our attention. WooooHooooo! Excellent news…your mom is NOT allergic to tomatoes.

    Oooooo those Beautiful Bears!

    …this is the day of the ellipsis…

    12:51 pm on August 21st, 2012

    OMD Melanie,
    Dan brought alive the reality of old age. I have tears in my eyes. What a great story.

    For some reason I can no longer get sound on YouTube…and I don’t have it on mute.

  71. Melanie
    12:52 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Thanks BSD, I love that song.

    I am collecting your comments (here and on email) on to a document for Dan to read.

  72. Masquers
    12:53 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Melanie: Thank you for the beautiful words from Anthem. Leonard Cohen has long been a favorite here and is a big part of our DVD and CD collection.
    Wookie: I love your story of the tattoo and how it helped you to meet your forever family.
    Rose: You must be so excited about meeting Golinka & The Storyteller!
    Cabernet, Merlot, Dark Ale, Corona!

  73. Masquers

    Hi Masquers!

    I cannot wait to meet the Royal Mum and the Storyteller! I’m also very excited to be meeting SnowBella and the Giant, and all the members of the Snowhook Kennel. I think the Prof may have a hard time getting me back to New York!

  75. Melanie
    1:09 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Wöökie the Dude with the Tats! That is a cool way to meet your parents. Our dogs have microchips in them. I wonder if they make a GPS chip now for Nation within . . .

  76. Rose
    1:12 pm on August 21st, 2012


    I just read Dan’s story. Beautifully told. It brought a tear to my eye. Just beautiful.

  77. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:16 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Dan!… My friend says she has read it 4 times and she loves it as much as I do…snort!…This is one thing we truly do agree on. When is your next one coming out?…chuffle!

  78. OleyHowlers
    1:23 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Bass and Smuttynose are both great, as is Siera Nevada, Victory, Stone … 😉

    When Mom starts those rashes, she always assumes poison ivy (off one of us). But it doesn’t look like it. And it always starts at the same place (left forearm), then spreads to right forearm, then neck/chin, then legs. This is the first time her face and lips blew up. The allergist thinks maybe it is a viral infection; Mom now thinks it could be something else outdoors that causes her reaction.

    Great tattoo story! We here have microchips, except for The Hot One.

  79. B.Stover
    1:35 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Melanie: I sent Dan an email on Dishlickers.

    Masquers: Thank you. I’ll check it out.

  80. Macy the Min-pin
    1:41 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Love the Anthem. Mom is melon-colley today, so it fit right in. Our neighbor is a colley, but I am not sure if she is the melon kind. And the town just north of us is Colleyville. I have been there, yet never seen a single colley.

    We like the bear-in-jacket too. They are all lovely. It seems like a shame to break up the set.

    It has been raining here off and on for days, and the temp is not supposed to be out f the 80s today. Would someone please check the calendar.

  81. BearSpiritDog

    Dan the Man: Excellet story! You certainly painted a vivid picture. “Thanks for noticing!” has been repeating in my mind all day. It was a pleasure meeting you in June. I booked a flight on a small plane yesterday to travel to a small village and I thought of you!

    Wookie: Any chance your tattoo is a full scale version of the Hang in There kitten poster like AJ? 😉

  83. Siber-H
    2:59 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Melanie, Thank you and Dan for sharing the short story with us.
    We love it and hope Dan continues to write…beautiful writing and stories are always something to treasure.

    Before we know it, Chet will be saying Smuttynose, not water is his drink.

    Dear Dan – thanks for noticing that we needed to hear the words from your heart. Thanks for sharing yourself. You write beautifully.

    5:32 pm on August 21st, 2012

    My mind is kind of wandering here. Dan’s story made me think of the Dylan Thomas poem, Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night, which then makes me think of the Simon & Garfunkel song A Simple Desultory Philippic (Or How I Was Robert McNamara’d Into Submission). Kind of hard to stay focused.

    Ummm, that wasn’t a joke, Riö. It really happened . . .

    Movie catch up. “From Time to Time” was a good family flick. Of course, I think the world of Maggie Smith (who is one year younger than Zoë).

    Now on to another “Foyle’s War”.

    I bet—I hope—that Stinky Mama’s booth is sold out and all that remains are empty displays to be restocked (and sold out) again tomorrow. I also hope that Leonard, the Storyteller not the dog has enjoyed funnel cakes, things that normally aren’t friend and has a full belly.

    6:25 pm on August 21st, 2012

    We have been busy this afternoon and now Barb is heading out to dinner with neighbors. She promised to bring a doggie bag for me tonight.

    Barb is going to read Dan’s story in the morning with her coffee. TTFN

    I like Wookie’s comparison of Dan’s story to Dylan Thomas’s poem.

    Just caught up on episode 2 of Grimm. This season 2 is excellent!

    Hoping Amalia and Leonard had a very successful day.

    Barb&Magpie: You are going to LOVE Dan’s story!

    Someone here is going to prepare supper.
    I’ll be back tomorrow – Bear

    I hope the Royal Mum’s booth still has some stuff for me when I get there on Saturday!

    You have our exact approach to sports – if their cap says NY, we want them to do well. Even the Jets, however improbably that is.
    I will start my retirement with a Yankees game where my son’s alumni group sold tickets in a luxury box. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d be in a luxury box.

    Wolfie, if your mom ever looks at Facebookie, she has a friend request. Her name popped up on the side, so we zipped over to her page.

    Yes, rain is a very good thing, but now the folks only have 1 day left for the water walking, since mom has an in-service on Thursday. She better get well before then.

    I have a feeling that if the Royal Parents sell out, they will be high-tailing it out of there. I somehow doubt that they carry a storeroom with them!

    Wookie: I like the way your mind wanders. That Dylan Thomas poem and Dan’s story do go hand in hand. Now I have to listen to some Simon and Garfunkel.
    Leonard Cohen is another great Canadian.

    Wose, yeah! Dot dot dot.

    Gosh I’m so tired. First the day with my girl at school and now two days of taking care of Molly’s Mom. I’m going to take a pre-bedtime nap now.

    Fajitas!…Buuuurrrrppp!….snort!….Supper is over and it is now time to watch the Rockies tromp The NY Mets….heh!heh!

    8:02 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Admin!…Did youse guys read about Grandparens Day at Titcombs bookstore over to the right on the facebookie thingy….heh!heh!…”Admin will consider that.”…chorkel!

    Time for bed.

    But first, on Foyle’s War they were having a raffle. It was for an ONION! Somehow I never thought that onions would be rationed . . .

    Mom just got back home and already it is the fifth inning…strange.

  116. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:20 pm on August 21st, 2012

    SiberH!…Did you see Pancheco run down that Met and tag him?….heh!heh!

    Sam, how is Aunt MollysMom doing?

  118. Mollypop's Mom
    8:33 pm on August 21st, 2012

    I just got back to Ellicottville. Very tired.

    Terry – I’m taking your suggestion about trying the Paleo diet. I found a market near Sam’s that sells meat from our local farms. I never ate much meat because I couldn’t find good sources. I’m willing to give this diet a try.

  119. Terry Ballard
    8:43 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Mollypop’s Mom – after two years at this for both Donna and myself, I can tell you that you’ll never regret it.

  120. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:52 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Walk!…My friend is leaving us to go on “her” walk…heh!…Its still plenty hot out there so good luck with that…snorkel!yawn!

    Terry!…Rockies are beating the Mets 4 ta 1, just so you know!…snort!

  121. OleyHowlers
    8:55 pm on August 21st, 2012

    We missed Terry mention that diet, but The Paleo Diet sounds similar to Will Clower when we googled it. Is that true? Will Clower says to eat like our grandparents did, and don’t eat anything that was not grown in the earth or had a mom and dad.

    The Rockies can win this one!

    Rio – just for you – Buuuurrrrppp!

    ‘Night, all.

  124. Tupper and Gilly
    9:34 pm on August 21st, 2012

    And now – directly from Dutchess County Fair -to Rio et al…
    (translation – fried pickles, veggie tempura, and a slice of pizza)

    Rose – we promise to be better behaved when you get here.

  125. Siber-H
    10:00 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Rio! The Rockies Won!

  126. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:12 pm on August 21st, 2012

    WoOOoooOOooOOoo!…The Rockies win AGAIN!….WOOOOOOOO!…heh!heh!…Hi Rose!

    Walk!…wheeze!…We just got back right at the end of the game…gasp!

  127. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:14 pm on August 21st, 2012

    BluKat!…heh!heh!snort!…Golinka! That diet is not on Will Clowers list of things to eat!…heh!heh!

  128. Siber-H
    10:48 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Fried pickles shouldn’t be on anybody’s list of things to eat.

  129. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:52 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Pickles!…My friend loves kosher dill pickles, but she is not supposed to eat them…grunt!…I doubt she would ever try a fried pickle, it just doesn’t sound right…sniff!

    Kitchen!….We are watching Hells Kitchen…heh!…Seems Chef Ramsey is in a new show about Hotels…sniff!…Now that is one I really want Rockie and his HillBilly friends to watch. They can do some research on where the bedbugs still reside…chorkel!

  130. Tupper and Gilly
    11:03 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Rio and Siber – we agree. Fried pickles are just not right.
    Fried Oreos on the other hand….

    Actually, we are catching fits trying to find food that will not completly clog our arteries before the end of the show. These people fry absolutely EVERYTHING.

    And one can only eat so many hamburgs – we don’t even want to discuss what could be in a county fair hot dog. We had yogurt with us today, and some leftover rotisserie chicken. Leonard had to walk by the fried pickle booth and they were out there pushing samples. When I had to go by, I told them to back off and no one would get hurt.

    Fried pickles, indeed. GAH!

  131. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:08 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Gah!…My friend is making me watch Hotel Hell…sniff!…She always wanted to run a Bed & Breakfast so this is required TV…grump!

  132. Siber-H
    11:13 pm on August 21st, 2012

    The bedbugs are still everywhere. They just aren’t getting any publicity right now.
    The last time I saw Rocky he was at the Red Dog Saloon.

    Night All

    I can’t believe my ears—Bluecat burped.

    I’ve never had any fair food. Course, I went to my first state fair just a handful of years ago so I’m behind on all things fair.

  134. Tupper and Gilly
    11:34 pm on August 21st, 2012

    Bella – we have had our share of fair food. And our share of really bad food. But this is our first fairly bad food fest. As in bad for you, not bad tasting…well, except for the pickle part….

    But dawn comes early, and showers and sleep are needed. So good night all. And thanks for the good wishes.
    (The internet coverage at the Really Long Shew site is spotty at best, so if we don’t get to talk to you during the day, we will pop in at night when we get back to our hotel,tired and punchy, and full of fried whatnots)

  135. SnowBella
    11:42 pm on August 21st, 2012

    T&G: When in doubt, stay away from the fried whatnots stand.

    Well, I was at mine a few days ago and not one book. Nada. Had to find an alternative source for all four hardbacks for autographs in September. Bookstore is holding Fistful of Collars for me.

    Maybe the CostCos vary. Mine has greatly reduced it’s book section so maybe a larger one stocks more books and it’s there. But not at mine.

    Good morning! We missed a big day yesterday. Mom didn’t get on the computer at all!

    Dan, we will take some time later to savor the story. We are sure it is wonderful.

    Wookie, Dad will have to check out Smuttynose Brewery. He really likes all different kinds of beers, as well as his regular BudLight.

    Good Luck at the Really Big Shew, Amalia and Leonard. Although Mom has never tried them, several girls at her office say that fried pickles are great. Love the bears!

    Mom has to get ready for work now, but we will check in later.
