The escapees are still on the loose from the grim-looking prison in Dannemora. That prison plays a role in END OF STORY, one of PA’s prison novels (LIGHTS OUT and DELUSION are the others).

    Good morning, everyone! End of Story sounds pretty final to us. Again, we loved that dance video, some real work went into that. Paws were tapping around here, amigo.
    Hump Day already so maybe watch out for marauding camels! (“Camelot!”, cried the salesman, “Used camels!”) Ah, ha, a silly Wednesday.

    National Tea Day, Books by OFA reflecting Currents Events
    and, of course, a Wacky Wednesday.
    So much to think about.
    A Very Good Morning to the Hounds and Everyone.

    Truth be told, as soon as I heard about the incident at Dannemora, I immediately thought of End of Story. Although the plot ultimately goes in a different direction, there are some eerie similarities between real world events and that book, one of OFA”s more grisly novels. But very prescient of IFA in any event, and for those of you who have not read End of Story, I would highly recommend it (but then I would offer that recommendation for all of OFA’s books).

    That should of course be “But very prescient of OFA. . .”; thanks otter correct.

    One of the escaped convict’s is from a Buffalo suburb. The news story is about an interview with his son.

    Good Morning! Someone mentioned cone head yesterday and I was wondering if any of you have seen the new insurance commercial where the husband is talking to the agent at 3 in the morning. The new version has the cone head husband on the phone and cone head wife comes down to find out who he is talking too. Actually makes that awful commercial funny!!

  11. BooBear
    11:01 am on June 10th, 2015

    And I think it had Dan Ackroid and Jane Curtain in it. If not, the actors were sure look-alikes

  12. Tupper's Mama
    11:05 am on June 10th, 2015

    BooBear – we did see that commercial the other day, and laughed our cones off!

    Good morning. We just now got caught up on last night’s posts.
    We have not read those prison stories, but we are putting them on our to-do list.
    Boo Bear, we want to see that commercial! It sounds like a hoot.
    Kat is playing nurse to her mama. Deja vú.

    Sam’s Mom, girl and I are going to the beach in Canada. Eh, Dawson. Sam will stay with Loulou and then over the Peace Bridge we go. We’re going to a sailing club that I used to belong to and they still do. I left after 9/11 made it so difficult to get over the bridge. I switched to the Buffalo Harbor Sailing Club and skipped all the bridge difficulty. I expect we will have a gorgeous day.

    When we come back, we’re having dinner at Claire’s downtown restaurant. You who came on Amtrak ate many meals at her Amherst restaurant, Brioso. This one is called Sweet and Savory.

    12:06 pm on June 10th, 2015

    MP&LLM: Sounds like a Lovely Day youse have planned…especially the part about Sweet and Savory. Heh.

    BooBear: Was that a Geico or Discover Card Commercial? Do you recall?

    DianeC: More Wonderfluffing! Photos por favor.

    Wishing her a quick recovery.

    BSD, you have a lovely day. Supposed to be 79 at your place today.

  19. Masquers
    12:21 pm on June 10th, 2015

    Found the commercial…very funny…and yes, I think the actors are Jane Curtin and Dan Aykroyd. This one is much better than the original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qztxrASEBtY

    HOH: BSD is already out lounging on the deck. I will join him shortly.

    12:21 pm on June 10th, 2015

    BSD, it was State Farm.

  21. O'Howlers
    1:25 pm on June 10th, 2015

    That is a great commercial.

    BSD, Meashka is on antibiotics because she has a fever and infection, likely from the puncture wound she got Dog knows how last week.

  22. Zoe
    1:31 pm on June 10th, 2015

    India has just come back from having her uterus which, was infected..removed. She survived the surgery very well and I think she will be fine, but she won’t eat. I plan to remove the pain patch tonight, and I have pain meds…in my experience, Newfs always eat.

    She stopped eating last weekend, altho she drinks water. I have bought chicken, hamburg, bacon and rice and hope to entice her with some of that later today. If any of you have any ideas about how to get my little (in comparison to Mac) one to start eating again, please let me know. Thanks.

  23. O'Howlers
    1:34 pm on June 10th, 2015

    Zoe, talk to your vet. They should have a canned food, which name escapes me, that dogs will eat when their appetite is off. It worked for Dima during all of the difficult time getting him to eat. We’ll check with some others who may remember the name.

  24. O'Howlers
    1:44 pm on June 10th, 2015

    We found it in Mom’s Quicken file. It is called A/D. It is available on Amazon, but the v e t may have a different, better version.


  25. Herd of Hounds
    2:26 pm on June 10th, 2015

    Zoe, a Newf not eating IS unusual. When the HOH gals get that way, we try egg…scrambled or raw!

  26. Herd of Hounds
    2:28 pm on June 10th, 2015

    Picky Pookey will sometimes take a bit of whole milk yogurt.

  27. Diane C.
    2:48 pm on June 10th, 2015

    Zoe–Scrambled eggs and/or baby food have proven to be favorites. (Strangely, so have string beans…)

    I just found this beautiful vipdeo, and I am sobbing. Be warned.

    3:51 pm on June 10th, 2015

    O’Howlers & O’Howlers’ Mom: Offensive and disturbing and a beautiful video that makes you sob. Not today, amigo.

    Zoe: I’m grateful to have all you knowledgable Plunderers ready and able to respond to Zoe’s request, lickety split!

    Zoe: Here’s hoping one or more of these suggestions work and the “little” Newf starts eating.

  32. Staff
    4:04 pm on June 10th, 2015

    I am with Dawson. Not watching anything that will make me sob today. Also anything that is offensive and disturbing will make me sob. I am sticking my head in the sand and staying there.

    Actually I am trying to update my replacement Surface computer. It came today and I have spent the last 2 hours loading 142 updates. It is finally done with that and now I have to go and load the 8.1 update as it only came with 8.0. grump!

  33. Tupper's Mama
    4:05 pm on June 10th, 2015

    Howlers – we love you, but we are going to stay with Dawson and not view the videos – thanks for the warnings.

    Zoe – here’s hoping that India is just still a little groggy from the anesthesia. Hope she will be back to eating normally by tonight. Very glad that she is drinking water – maybe put a little yogurt or broth in it to stir up her appetite?

  34. Herd of Hounds
    4:07 pm on June 10th, 2015

    OH, sobs, yes, but a beautiful expression of unconditional love!

  35. O'Howlers' Mom
    4:36 pm on June 10th, 2015

    HOH, right? I saved that and bookmarked it. I want to watch it over and over and over. Even though it makes me sob, it makes me happy and reminds me over and over of what is the important part of my life. I had to run out just now, and was only gone for 5 minutes, but yep! I was greeted like I’d been gone forever. Such love.

    And speaking of going out, the most amazing thing just happened. Do you guys remember the story of little Jessica who fell in love with these huskies when we’d walk past her house, and talked her mom into visiting, and then wrote such a lovely letter and visited again? Well, I had not seen her since, and she and her mom live in a different house that is close by, but not on our way anywhere. I’d been thinking about her a lot lately, and I’d been wanting to call her and have her visit and give her the extra copy of Woof that I purchased for the library, but like I said, I don’t see her, and we are never home and not busy these days.
    So, I logged off work early today and decided now’s as good a time as any to finally go see that new library and donate the book. On my way in there, who do I see? Jessica!!!! She was visiting her old home, where her dad lives. And she was so darn excited to see me, too. Does she like to read? YES! And I already knows she loves dogs. So therefore: she will be reading Woof and then she will be donating it to the library.

    btw, the offensive and disturbing one you do want to read. It is just about docs and v e t s saying our kind shouldn’t sleep in bed.

    4:48 pm on June 10th, 2015

    Masquers, It is indeed Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin in the ad. Evidently those Jake at State Farm ads are extremely popular.

    O’Howlers: A Very Beautiful Video. Sob. The Scenes on the Beach bring back so many memories.
    Nana vowed she would not cry, but 3 seconds into the Denali Video she was Sobbing Her Heart Out.

  39. Masquers
    5:33 pm on June 10th, 2015

    BML: It’s great to see Jane Curtin and Dan Aykroyd reunited as their Coneheads characters.

    We here will not be watching the offensive and disturbing video.

    Howlers: Great story about your little friend Jessica and Woof.

  40. O'Howlers' Mom
    6:32 pm on June 10th, 2015

    Masquers, that offensive and disturbing link is not a video, and is only offensive and disturbing to my huskies, and any Members of the Nation who believe their place is on our beds.

    6:51 pm on June 10th, 2015

    I read Lights Out and End of Story but not Delusion. There are several PA books that I have yet to read.

    I did not remember that Dannemora prison was mentioned in End of Story. I was wondering if it was close to Mpop’s and LL’s Mom, since they were talking about those inmates possible crossing into Canada.

    There is a hockey game tonight.

  42. Herd of Hounds
    7:16 pm on June 10th, 2015

    Mom loved the Denali video and is saving it with a few tear drops too. She has shared it with friends. She says she has “puppy proofed ” the house so we can get on couches and beds.
    PA’s books come from other library branches so tough to get but will keep trying!
    Hockey toinght? Go Blackhawks!!!

  43. Mpop's and Loulou's Mom
    7:40 pm on June 10th, 2015

    Dawson, Dannemora prison is way up the state near Watertown. If they were here, they’d never get across the Niagara River.

If she pushes it this loud EMERGENCY! EMERGENCY! EMERGENCY! voice thingy goes off…yeeep!…It hurts my ears. And then a person comes on over the box and YELLS, DO YOU NEED HELP!??…gasp!…Then my friend said No we are just testing the system…wheeze!…Then it all happened again when Mother accidentally pushed the Wall Button…Yeeeeep!

    Once dry, apply a laquer to protect the front surface of the mural,
    following manufacturers’ directions. It is highly recommended
    to install these tiles in an area where there is a high traffic of people.
    It can be nailed using a wall board hammer designed to countersink the

    Blog writing– promote your company.
    Several companies now make use of blogging pages as an informal way of getting in touch with their customers.
    For the smaller sized, or brand-new business owners, it’s an excellent means to publicize
    their products without costly advertising costs.
    Just by publishing a routine blog writing pillar, small firms can frequently reel
    in more company compared to by the much more
    traditional approaches.
    My dad would bring his pay home (in cash), and they would divvy
    it up into the appropriate envelopes: house payment, groceries, gas and so
    forth. s procedures, it is easy to afford to change your life around for the better.

    Unfortunately, there are circumstances where a procedure is
    needed for reconstruction purposes.
