Daily Kindle Deal Post Mortem

“How did yesterday’s Daily Kindle Deal for DOG ON IT do?” says Admin.

“In what way?” says Spence.

“Hmm. Got me there.”

“And anyway I really had nothing to do with it.”

“You did write the book, though, unless I’m missing something.”

“And now I’m writing another one.”

“The new C&B? What’s it called?”

“It’s called – oops, better take this phone call.”

Still sorting out Friends uploading issues.

    Good morning all. I did remember the password for dishlickers and was able to read Amalia’s message. I am so sorry to hears the news and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. I am glad you can be there for him.

    Getting ready for a work day here. Yesterday was a perfect fall day. Today temps will be dropping about 20 degrees. Brrrr.

    Staff, I LOVE your work(play) room. That quilt looks marvelous.

    Good news about the newest little Plunderer about to enter the world.

    Good morning to all. Sunny, windy, 42 degree day (so far) in Wisconsin.

    Good luck to GLAD and OTAS with their birthing and this exciting new chapter in their lives.

    Thank you Rose. I like the Google Doodle. (I remember polio shots also.)

    I wonder if the baby has been born. And what a wonderful quilt Staff.

    9:40 am on October 28th, 2014

    No news on the baby front – it could actually be a couple of days yet, but GLAD is at the hospital being pampered and cared for, with OTAS at her side.

    And today is Jodi’s (the person, not the pup)Birthday! Happy Birthday Jodi!!!

    Me too!
    I want to know the title of the next book.

    Tupper’s Mama: It will not be an easy job to be there for your brother as he comes to the end of his journey. You are there for him and we will be right there with you. We will supply shoulders to cry on and pillows upon which to rest your weary head at the end of the day. Some will supply laughter and hugs and all will supply love, lots of love to you and your family.

    We are going to be blog grandparents!
    Staff: Your new quilting room is already being put to good use!

    Serious packing going on here. I still have to get an absentee ballot for the municipal election that will happen in November, go to the bank, charge my camera, and many other little details, some of which I will forget.

    Happy birthday to Jodi!

    Staff: The Indie Film is a Wonderful Tribute to Chris. I wish we were in Chicago to see it. Hopefully it will be available later for viewing.
    What a Wonderful & Thoughtful Gift for OTAS & GLAD’S baby (and our newest Plunderer).

    Yes, Dawson. You had better Get Packing, Amigo.

    The Awesome One has reminded us we have not completed and mailed in our absentee ballot.
    Important measures to be considered regarding gun control this time around.
    Question: Why do the powers that be have to make these things so difficult? It can’t be a simple either/or response, but always has something added on, confusing the issue.

    I would like to know the title of the new Chet and Bernie book, but Spence will tease us for awhile. I hope Dog On It sold well yesterday (I bet it did) because readers cannot stop at one book in that series.

    Happy Birthday to Jodi!!!

    Tupper’s Mama–Just got caught up and heard. My thoughts and good prayers join all those others seeking to comfort and help sustain you and all those you love.
    Happy Birthday Jodi.
    Staff–Stunned and impressed by the quilt (and the whole quilting setup–you are so organized!)
    Everyone–Now teaching 3x as much as I was this time last year and fatigued a little over halfway through the term. Thanks to y’all and the comfort of this blog, not completely crazy and distraught, so this is a good time for me to take a page from Wose/Rose’s book and mention my gratitude.
    Kind of desperate for a pun or two at this point, and I’m not sure I get the whole pug/Poe thing. (Just sayin’…)

  25. Tupper's Mama
    3:53 pm on October 28th, 2014

    Diane – Poe was dark, mysterious, haunted and brilliant. Rio is….well…..Rio is a mystery.

    3:55 pm on October 28th, 2014

    Oh wait–just found the Poe homage…kind of cute. Will HOH add some more? This could be a group project…

    Deep into the puddle, peering, long I sat there, not quite hearing snuffles, chuffles, farts and gurgles low in my proximity…

    Rose, My mail comes mid afternoon. I checked it when I got home at 5:00 and the calendar was not there. It will probably be here tomorrow.
    It took over a week for you to get my check, so I am not worried.

    Behold the grand, majestic pug
    Lying there just like a slug.
    He loves the middle of the rug
    Where he is always nice and snug.
    Some say he looks just like a thug
    But we just think he needs a hug
    Or his face printed on a mug.
    The pug is like an antidrug
    His tongue and looks are oh, so smug.
    At meals he may go glug, gllug,
    And if so you just need to shrug,
    Unless our nose you need to plug.

    I have to be patient because it is still a couple weeks before I get the calendar, but I can hardly wait!

    O’Howlers: Hooray for bicycles! Only the very hearty are out on their bikes these day.
    The temperatures have dipped below freezing and probably won’t come back up until March. I’m out of here tomorrow! Will spend one night in Vancouver then across the border heading for a wet Halloween if the reports are right. Nana is going to pick me up in Bellingham! We’ll have lunch somewhere between there and the Seattle airport. Yippee!

    I wonder if our blog grandchild is being born yet, if the 5 buck truck is still going and, if there is a baseball game on tv tonight and if I should pack 90% of my stuffed animals to give to the grandkids.

    Is the 5 Buck Truck still going

    O’Howlers: 75 degrees! I have been looking at the temperatures in Celsius which seems much colder than Fahrenheit. I am packing for 40’s to 60’s but by the time I return in December it could easily be -30 C which is -20 F. so I will have to bring some heavy clothing.

    Rio: I leave tomorrow but only get as far as Vancouver. The next day I will go to Bellingham, missing the youngest son who is up in Alaska working (or not working because it’s too warm). I’ll visit d i l, Bijou (5 years) and Dresdon (almost 16) for a couple days, then to Seattle via Nanabus to Missoula Montana where I see A Catty Librarian and Elliot the Massage Cat, and my oldest son, d i l and Ruby Josephine, the youngest of the family.
    It goes on from there and I do end up in Minneapolis in the middle of the month, staying until Staff shows up and we have a nice Thanksgiving together with Dad, Turtleman and little “e”.
    Then back to Bellingham where hopefully I get to see youngest son and back home to Canada.

  92. dawson

    The Kats have a good point. Shouldn’t we mark the old truck/new truck as fully funded if the 5 buck truck reaches its goal?

    Aaaaargh! Ten to zip!

  93. Basil and Sage
    10:00 pm on October 28th, 2014

    Only $125 to go on the goal of the 5 buck truck!

    And we would like to share a warning with you – do NOT, under ANY circumstances, open a giant bag of new peanut butter M&M’s. Just back away, and no one gets chubby. Ummm, chubbier…..

I do not see how there will be any left for the actual trickie treaters…sniff!…My friend has advised her to not turn her light on or answer the door that night as Beau will go Beau-listic each and every time and blow out his knobby knees…grump!…I hate halloweenie.

    Mmmmm. M&Ms!

    I am going to bed early tonight. I don’t need to see the end of this game.

    Night all y’all.

    I predict Kansas City will win this game, and soon, very soon, the Dog Truck Fund will reach its goal of $5000

    When will this game 7 be played? I might actually watch it.

    I got a surprise calendar today. Mighty nice. Thanks to those involved.

    Now to bed, forsure to sleep. Nighty night, y’all.

    Yikes! I can’t leave you guys alone for very long at all–so much happens. I enjoyed all the pug material (No one tried “The _____ comes in on little pug feet” but can’t think of anything along those lines either).
    HOH–Loved it and would love to hear more.
    Just had a student paper that, to put it delicately, seems to have been heavily influenced by someone else’s (uncredited) writing. Sigh.
    I wandered lonely as a pug…

    How about this: The Bacon comes in on little pug feet.
    Hm. Better put A. Catty to bed so she can wake up in the morning and cook bacon because now I want some, on pug feet or no.
