    Good morning! Wookie’s Paw, if you need assistance in your lawsuit on Rio’s behalf, Atty. Meash stands at the ready.
    Mr. Fireslippers strikes again! A carrot peeler! Heh heh! Priceless.
    As for Sierra, there are two lessons to be learned, and not by us Members of the Nation Within:
    #1. No rings or other jewelry are worth $23,000
    #2. F you have something very valuable, why on earth would you put it within reach of one of us youngsters?

    Good morning OH and everyone! Poor Sierra. We do agree with the Howlers, though.

    And in Snowhook news: Philip is in the Copper Basin 300 which starts at 10:00 am AKT !!!!

    OH, has he said what dogs are on his team?

  5. Herd of Hounds
    9:31 am on January 10th, 2015

    It looks like Copper Basin 300 has a fairly good live tracker site.

    The rings were (foolishly) left there for the taking. I’m glad Sierra will be okay.

    Thank you for the link Howlers.

    Good morning all.

    OH, how are you going to keep your mom calm until 2 EST?

    Rio: If there is salt in the ice dumped on your lawn, then yes there will be damage to the grass.

  12. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:56 am on January 10th, 2015

    We agree, there should be a safer place to leave one’s rings than on a coffee table. I bet she doesn’t make that mistake again.

    No diamonds would be swallowed around here.

    Rio, in our town the lawn area between the sidewalk and the street is considered city property. If there are trees planted in that space, the city can trim them or do whatever they want. If that is true in your suburb, there might not be much recourse.

    10:47 am on January 10th, 2015

    Morning all. That is a LOT of money for personal adornment. We have diamond collars from Amazon, and we are sure Mama didn’t pay that much.
    The Storyteller doesn’t understand what is so funny about Mr.Fireslippers. Have we mentioned that the Storyteller’s idea of cooking is boiling water for his instant oatmeal?
    Good to see three members of the Plunderer litter on the team! Last year, they were clinging to life….now they are running Copper Basin.
    (And Mama is sniffling a little at one of the pairs)

    T&G, the DDD got a real hoot over Mr. Fireslippers and the “cheese slicer”. Thank dog he can be of help in the kitchen,

  18. BearSpiritDog
    11:17 am on January 10th, 2015

    Diamond Rings…Not a Problemo around here either.

    Poor Mr. Fireslippers…Heh, heh…Another Foe Paw for the rest of us to chortle about.

    Quite an Impressive Line-up for Philip’s Team and Yes, that Last Pair had us sniffling too.

    O’Howlers: Youse are on Top of Things this morning. Thanks for the Link!

    11:19 am on January 10th, 2015

    Rio. I checked with my paw about this lawsuit thingie. My dad says he believes he has been admitted to a number of bars in Colorado but he is not sure whether he has been admitted to the Bar in Colorado, whatever that means. In any event, he said that he will look into that further, on both counts.

  20. O'Howlers
    11:33 am on January 10th, 2015

    We are also sniffling about the pup who is missing from that Plunderer litter. But that is then, and this is now. Onward Snowhook!

  21. dawson
    12:00 pm on January 10th, 2015

    $23,000 for rings! And they are left rolling around on the table? Poor Sierra. I’m glad she is okay and hopefully the ring owners have learned a lesson.

    Thanks O’Howlers for that link for the Copper Basin race.
    Go Plunder Pups!
    I don’t remember hearing the name Squishy before.
    Go Squishy!
    Go Philip!

    Mr. Fireslippers: Ya gotta love him!

    Koosie!…Someone busted out the good-Luck Koosie for the play-off games starting here at 2:30…snort!…I won this in a bet last year during the play-offs!…chuffle! ….It is a special Koosie as it has a unique design. Check it out!….burp!

    I agree with what the Howlers said about the jewelry.

    Howlers, Thanks for the link to the Copper Basin Race.

    Mr.Fireslippers demands I post this picture. I don’t see his point but I am obeying.

  29. Siber-H
    2:45 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Staff, I am laughing but I do kinda see Mr. Fireslipper’s point.

  30. Herd of Hounds

    Rio, nice pile of caca on your yard 🙂 Bet you and Beau couldn’t produce that much in a lifetime!

    2:46 pm on January 10th, 2015

    I think I will also post this one of Mr.Fireslippers and a fan. heh heh heh

    Yes, those kittens are not allowed on the table. You see how well that is working. About as well as the counter top rule.

    Staff, now we know who has the stronher personality. Is Mr. Fireslippers kitchenlexic? Foto looks fairly straight forward to us and we are K9s

  34. O'Howlers
    3:02 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Tell Mr. Fireslippers that the photo of the cheese slicer and the carrot peeler made us laugh that much harder. Heh! Heh! Heh!

    3:11 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Does Mr. Fireslippers see the difference now?

    Go kitten!

  37. B.Stover
    3:13 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Forgot: Even though I see the pictures, I don’t know what a “koosie” is.

  38. B.Stover
    3:14 pm on January 10th, 2015

    The dew point is minus 9 so there is no moisture in the air which makes it hard to breathe. I have two humidifiers going.

  39. O'Howlers
    3:16 pm on January 10th, 2015

    A koosie is a holder for a beer bottle, Bee. It is used in the summer to keep the beer cold, and in the winter to keep the paws warm.

    Philip is off!

  40. Masquers
    3:22 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Martha! I received the pattern for the knit catnip mousies today. Thank you so much. I haven’t done that “increase” business for a few years, so I will have to ponder for awhile. I really appreciate it. Thank you again.

    5:00 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Barb is back after picking up the meat order. There were 14 boxes and it took 2 cars to bring it back. It was then divided 7 ways, and tonight we are going to try a filet.

    Rio, enjoy your bear. We are going to join you for a strengthening cocktail shortly.

  56. Billy's Buddy
    5:09 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Ah, Barb. A strengthening cocktail. What a good idea.

  57. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:19 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Lurker!….Are youse guys watching the Ravens vs the Patriots right now?….sniff!…This is going to be a nail-biter I can just tell. Beau and I are rooting for the Patriots because I don’t think the Broncos could beat the Ravens…heh!heh!burp!

  58. O'Howlers
    5:23 pm on January 10th, 2015

    A Bud lite? Seriously? Who’da thunk it. Nobody drinks those around here.

    Barb, what meat? We must have missed something.

  59. Mollypop's Mom
    5:29 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Yes, a strengthening cocktail. Count me in.

  60. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    5:33 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Howlers, we ordered 3 beef halves a while ago. The meat is from a local farmer who has a small pastured herd of Angus cattle. He finishes them on grain, but he grows his own non-GMO corn. They are given no growth hormones or antibiotics. Five families took a quarter, and then we split the last quarter with another family. If we are going to eat meat, this is the way we want it raised. It worked out to about $4.50 to $5.00 per lb, which is extremely reasonable, we think.

  61. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:38 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Howlers!….Why not?…buuuurrrrp!

  62. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:49 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Tied!…The magical Koozie is working!…snort!…The game is tied right now. The Patriots have come from a 14 – 0 deficit…chuffle!…Go Koozie! Go!

  63. Mollypop's Mom
    5:50 pm on January 10th, 2015

    L the L, to increase a stitch, put the needle in to knit and pull it back down but don’t take the stitch off the left-hand needle. Then insert the needle again like you were going to purl and you will get a second stitch out of that one stitch on the left-hand side. I’m assuming you’re right-handed.

  64. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:57 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Knitting!….While drinking a strengthening cocktail will surely produce some unique results…snort!

  65. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    5:58 pm on January 10th, 2015

    There is a movie on tonight (for non-footballers) called Magic of Ordinary Days. It is on the Hallmark Movie channel and is one of our all time favorites.

  66. Tupper and Gilly
    5:59 pm on January 10th, 2015

    MPM – now you do computer-speak about knitting too? Sheesh, you are a woman of many talents.

    HOH – love the “Dogs are Not Allowed..” That is kind of how we introduced the Storyteller to living with us.

  67. Herd of Hounds
    6:02 pm on January 10th, 2015

    T&G, it surely is true around here but mom puts he little foot down about under the covers.

    6:06 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Tonight at 5:15 PST the Panthers play the Hawks in Seattle.
    Paws Crossed the Broncos will not have to play the Ravens tomorrow. Those Birds can be Formidable…We should know.

    On another front…tomorrow Dallas and Green Bay will be freezing their tushes off on the Frozen Tundras of Lambeau Field.

  69. Riö – The Evil Pug
    6:16 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Bear!…No, no, no…the Ravens are playing the Patriots right now…snort!…Those Broncos are scheduled to play Blu-Kat’s team, the Colts tomorrow…wheeze!

    6:17 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Seahawks!…Oh no. Now I’m sure we will have to watch the Seahawks game tonight just because Beau knows about it now…grunt!…There goes the evening…whiffle!

  72. Riö – The Evil Pug
    6:18 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Yeeep!….Half-time and the Patriots are behind again….groan!

    Mr. Fire Slippers: Snort!

    I’ve got 90 percent of my errands done and am ready to check out Philip and the Snowhook team.

    They had (6) poblano peppers at the grocery store. A rarity, so I bought half of them for chile rellenos. I love chile rellenos.

    Rio: Ask your friend what kind of chiles are in those frozen 2 pound bags? Are they the infamous “hatch” chiles of which I’ve heard speak? Or some other kind? Are they green? Are they red? Big or small?

  75. BearSpiritDog
    6:28 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Rio: We are NOT watching the Ravens vs the Pats…that would be Way Too Much Excitement for one day.
    Better we listen to your Play-by-Play.

  76. Mollypop's Mom
    6:28 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Bear, I wasn’t able to make it to the funeral or to the breakfast afterwards. It was snowing about 2 inches an hour and there was a travel advisory on. There were white outs and many of our major roads were closed. I was hoping to make it to Sammy’s house and ride with them but I wasn’t able to get that far.

  77. Riö – The Evil Pug
    6:34 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Chilies!….Hot Green Chilies…snort!…Any kind will do I suspect. My friend is honored because someone who is married to the hotshot and is from Mexico will be using her recipe to make the green chili tomorrow…chuffle!…Although this gal will be making her own chicken broth and fresh tomatoes with habaneros – not the canned stuff…heh!heh!…In return my friend is going to get some of her authentic Mexican food recipes….Yeeeeep!

    You are welcome for the directions. I am very impressed by anyone who can knit. I tried in Girl Scouts and was not good at it.
    Here is a survey: What is the strangest thing your dog did eat? For me, it was years ago when my St. Bernard ate one of my socks. It did require surgery!

    Go Patriots!

  79. Riö – The Evil Pug
    6:37 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Bear!…During play-off season there can never be too much excitement!…snort!snort!…I forego watching most of the regular season, but we, Beau, my friend and I, do enjoy the games leading up to the Supper-Bowl…chuffle!burp!

  80. Riö – The Evil Pug
    6:42 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Noooo!….The Koozie just fell off the table unprovoked!…sniff!….Could it be losing it’s magical powers?…yikes!…The Patriots are behind by 2 touchdowns now (again)…grump!

  81. BearSpiritDog
    6:44 pm on January 10th, 2015

    MollyPop’s Mom: We were worried about you having to Drive On the Icy Roads, so are relieved to hear you didn’t go.

    Dawson: We love Chili Rellenos too! And it has much too long since we’ve had them.

    Barb,Magpie,Lucy: Since the Big Game is on at the same time we won’t be able to watch that movie. Instead we will Record it to Watch Later.

  82. BearSpiritDog
    6:51 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Otherwise, come February 1st it could be a Battle of the Birds.

  83. Riö – The Evil Pug
    6:53 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Gronk!….The Koozie is back on the table and all of a sudden Gronk caught a catch for the touchdown!….WOOOOO!…Now the Pats are behind by only one touchdown…snort!snort!…Gronk was on Top Chef recently, so we know who he is first paw…chorkel!…He is a foodie! And he is a big Bugger…chuffle!

    Enough with the predictions. I personally would like to see a repeat of last year’s teams returning to the Superbowl.

  85. Mollypop's Mom
    6:55 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Bear, I might have tried to make a run for it, but I’ve had this rib pain that’s holding me back from doing crazy things like I used to do. Because of our friend going into hospice and dying and the wakes and now the funeral, I hadn’t mentioned to Sam’s mom about the problem yet.

    I fell back in October and I thought my sore rib was all healed up. I did something either the end of last week or early this week that brought all the pain back again. So I’ve just been lying low and healing. I don’t know what I did to make it come back.

  86. Riö – The Evil Pug
    6:56 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Snort!…Maskers! You may get your wish, but you have to be patient and live through January and the Play-offs…chorkel!…Secretly, my friend and I do not believe the Broncos will make it that far this year. But we would never tell Beau to his face as he is a True Believer!….snort!

  87. O'Howlers
    6:57 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Barb, that sounds like the kind of beef we get. Grass-fed but finished on grain. Small farm. Only a very few each year.

    Rio, these guys are beer snobs. Not us, mind you. We’d join you and drink whatever you are offering. But the ‘rents don’t do lite beers, and nothing mass-produced. They like microbrews. Pop sticks to pale ales and i.p.a’s (apostrophe catastrophe?). Mom likes those, but also stouts, porters, bitters…well, she hasn’t found a type she doesn’t like, as long as it’s the right type for the season.

  88. Riö – The Evil Pug
    6:59 pm on January 10th, 2015

    MollysMaw!…It is a good thing you chose wisely and stayed home. Please rest up AND no heavy lifting (as in Moving All Your Stuff from one place to another) during this winter…sneeze!…Back to the game!…yeeeep!

  89. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    7:03 pm on January 10th, 2015

    BSD, I think Nana will really like the movie. The book is great too.

    Martha, Barb says the most unusual thing one of her dogs ever ate was black thong underwear that belonged to her son’s girl friend. They came out in one piece, and Barb thought it would be funny to wash them and give them back to her, knowing where they had been. However, she did not.

  90. O'Howlers
    7:04 pm on January 10th, 2015

    What are Chili Rellenos?

    We are having Kat problems here. This week she began this new thing where she won’t come in at night, and when the ‘rents go to get her, she keeps running off and makes them chase her. Something is scaring her. But we have no idea what, or who.

  91. Riö – The Evil Pug
    7:04 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Breaks!…There are a LOT of commercial breaks in football…grump!…Anyways, back to the beer discussion. I am the beer drinker here and she buys me Bud Light. I have nothing really to compare it to…heh!heh!burp!… I am on a limited beer budget and so therefore….

  92. Riö – The Evil Pug
    7:06 pm on January 10th, 2015

    WOWSER!…The Patriots just scored again! Thank you magical Koozie!!…snort!…Now the game is tied once again!…ZOW!

    7:12 pm on January 10th, 2015

    MPM: I remember it now. Thank you!

    I, however, am watching Law and Order when Michael Moriarty was the Order. He was premier.

    I received a couple Christmas cards today. One from Barb, Maggie & Lucy that was sent on December 13th and one from CHobbit that was sent on December 16th!
    I received 2 others before Christmas, one from Wose and one from O’Howler’s. Both made it across the border using only a forever stamp which is not legal for international mail.
    Thank you for the cards!

    Rio: Real authentic recipes from Mexico! Let us know what the hot-shot says about your green chile recipe. I have to go south next week for a couple days and I’m hoping to find some chiles.

    BearSpiritDog: The man who lives in this house is not a fan of Mexican food so you are welcome to blur by and join me for some rellenos.

    We did not know we were breaking the law, Dawson. But now that we know, damn! It feels good!

    Authentic!…I hear she is a big fan of the blender to make her simple but wonderful sauces….slobber!…Someone here cannot wait to try out the recipes if she can wrangle control of the kitchen away from you-know-who!…snort!

    Rio: I am now on board.

    Our older son is a high school head football coach. Football has become a way of life at the Lurker household.

    We will be glued to the TV at noon tomorrow, also. Green Bay v. Dallas.

    Barb, Maggie & Lucy: The global forever stamp is $1.10. I think your stamp was a regular forever stamp too.

    Rio: Did your lost cookies ever arrive in Alaska?

    O’Howlers: A roasted poblano chile, filled with monterey jack cheese, dipped in stiffly beaten egg whites then deep fat fried.
    slathered with a tomato based sauce with onions, garlic, lime juice and spices.

    Thanks, Dawson. That sounds delish. Then again, anything sounds good at this point. After the chicken was in the oven for an hour, it was discovered that someone somehow had turned the oven off. We are still waiting to eat. Growl go the tummies.

    Dawson, you’ve got us drooling. WE can get more Mexican food here than a decade ago but it is east coast Mexican and slightly different than what mom grew up with. Chite cheeses here, yellow and white out west. Serrano peppers instead of poblanos. Just little differences.

  108. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    8:15 pm on January 10th, 2015

    We remember Dawson’s fondness for Mexican food on our trip last year.

    The steak we just had for dinner was amazing! Barb actually shared a few bites.

    Go Philip! I wonder if AJ is watching his protege on the Copper Basin tracking site.

    HOH: Dog Rules. I think that list of dog rules works for Staff’s new kitties too.

    This tracker on the Copper Basin race seems to be keeping track of Phillip and it refreshes easily. What a day…2 dead trees being cut down in our yard, a race start, and football out the ying yang. Oh and a double birthday celebration: Darah Thes 2 and Blondie 1. The HOH is a pack of pooped pups. Nighty night.

    OK…I’m way behind, as usual, but is it just me, or is $23K just stupid expensive?

    Martha, I got my knitted mousie recipe too. I do yarn-over increases because I am lazy. But it would make a hole in the mouse so I think I will have to do it Mollypop’s Mom’s way.

    I noticed that Phillips booties were green. I wonder if he bought with the Snowhook guys for a bigger order?

    Go Phillip, and Snowhook! Go Amalia and Melanie! And Maury and Little!

    Snort!…I am wondering why some of you are rooting for Phil and Snowhook at the same time? AJ the Giant is not in this race as far as I can tell…grunt!

    Damn!…Those Seahawks!…groan!

    10:58 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Oooops!…Beau’s logon was still up when I posted just now…grump!

    We are rooting for the Snowhook Dogs which Phillip is running. You know that Rio, but football has probably warped your brain.

    Interception and 89 yards for a touchdown! The Seahawks are a great team to watch but my eyelids are getting heavy…

    11:15 pm on January 10th, 2015

    Staff!…Yes! I an rooting for the Snowhook Dawgs – I have a soft spot for little Melanie. She is so little and so timid, but she sure can run!…heh!heh!…Truthfully, I think Phil is running the race for Phil and probably not necessarily for Snowhook’s Glory…grunt!…The dogs are a gift to him from Snowhook. I hope he takes very very good care of them. Or I will personally find my way up there and he will know the wrath of Rio…snort!

    Someone Here has not been able figure out the Tracking System for the Copper Basin 300 so we can’t tell What’s what and Who’s where.

    Seahawks!…Congratulations to Nana, Maskers and Bear! Their team is a big winner…snort!…So the Patriots and the Seahawks definitely have a shot at being in the Supper Bowl this season…chuffle!…Tomorrow two more teams will be in that category. Of course we are hoping the Broncos will beat the Colts – Beau is certain they will. We shall see…gruffle!

    Kitchen!..Oh and my friend is hoping to get up early and taking over the kitchen tomorrow – going to make Great Grama’s Case Noodle (recipe in Dishlickers)…heh!heh!…Everyone is happy when this happens!….wOOOooooOOO!

    Is anyone else up? Strangely depressed and anxious…
    (It is possible to bake rellenos–or casserole them–for a marginally “healthier” alternative.)
    Even food descriptions aren’t working for me…better go meditate.

    Hey, HOH–Did you see this from earlier in the year? It definitely improved my mental health.

    Diane, that is amazing since moose are bad tempered and dangerous, probably because they are very nearsighted. Score 1 for Bullwinkle 🙂
