Deflation, Footballs, Us

“What’s the big issue?” Admin says. “Chet deflates all kinds of balls as a matter of normal procedure, footballs included. Lighten up, everybody!”

    Good morning, Amigos! I’m with Admin and Chet on this one. What good is a ball if I can’t deflate it?

    Good morning Zeus and everyone! Admin is getting better. 3 sentences with no typots. We are particularly of tennis balls but our cousin, Lucky, love footballs. We bet he is quicker than Chet in the deflate dept.
    Friday? So soon? Soggy here but, have a fab Friday, all!

    We agree. And we liked Sraff’s theory yesterday that the cold air caused the change.

    Quiet day here with a high of 38, with snow arriving Sunday.

    ML – Mama is willing to move in with you. Let’s find a place for all of us. We would love to play with Macy.

    Thanks for all your encouragement re Bulldozering. The local paper is jumping on this and will be calling for more info later today. Meanwhile, contacting our state senators (one of whom is Elizabeth Warren) to continue the battle.

    Deflate – gate, phooey. It’s a GAME. There are no ramifications, there are no consequences. It’s a GAME. World peace, global warming, the depleted aquifer and the health care crisis will not be affected. Nothing is affected. Move on….

    Mama Meash, Mom needs to paypal Snowhook for sponsoring Squishy. Does she do it the normal way or is there a special link set up for that funding? Mom thought you posted one the other day, but of course, can’t find it now!

    There is a special link.

  19. BooBear
    11:32 am on January 23rd, 2015

    Good morning youse guys. I came out of the closet this morning and got on the bed. Then that Henry got on the bed too. I ignored him. Then that Keiko got on the bed and tried to sniff me. Really! I was indignant and tried to bop her, about 6 times, while hissing. She decided not to sniff me.

    I told staff all about it and she was so sorry for my troubles and said I was a brave cat!

    So There!

    Good morning everyone–I apparently missed out on a number of momentous happenings yesterday and am waiting excitedly for further new of Tupper’s Mama’s crusade.
    Alice M.–I know exactly how you feel. Some days it seems like it’s not worth the effort to leave the closet (but we must–our public needs us).
    Loved the Tundra pictures, hope everyone in the cold part of the country is keeping warm and all are travelling safely.
    HOH–Words fail me. They just fail me.
    So I’M off to the library. Later, y’all…

    I agree with Spence on deflategate. The news channels are covering this story as if it were the end of the world. To quote T&G who are not sports fans…”It’s a GAME”.

    Alice, I’m proud of you. Good Girl!

    ML, I agree with everyone’s suggestions abut moving into a senior living facility. You are too young. There are other good options.

    Looks like a BC or an Aussie. Could be an English Shepherd, but we are rare.

    Must go back and read last night’s later posts. What is this about ML moving into an assisted living? ML, aren’t you in your mid 50s? What are you thinking girl? Everyone is going to be 20+ years older than you.

  31. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    1:45 pm on January 23rd, 2015

    OK, back after reading the assisted living posts. We agree with several who mentioned a senior community where you have to be 55 or over. Sun City is a big one here. Mostly individual homes, but outside work is done for you. They have pools, tennis courts and activity centers. You can have pets, but no live-in kids.

    That might be a good way to go, but you would still have to do your own meals. When I had surgery I went to a place that sold prepared meals. They were like homemade and better than grocery store frozen meals. Reasonably priced – about $4.00 per meal. I know you do not like to cook, so that could be an option. Do you have Seattle Sutton there? They will prepare all your meals and deliver twice a week.

  32. Herd of Hounds
    1:53 pm on January 23rd, 2015

    B&M&L thank you for the Sun City reference DEL WEBB Sun City we believe is the developer. 55+ Houes, condos, real life but with a support system and activities. (games, bikes, hikes, walks, folks)

    If there is anyone in position of power that doesn’t know about the health care scandal in this state by tonight, it will be because they don’t want to know about it.

    ML, BSD is correct but life costs, too. WE think it is too soon for you to make any BIG or major life changes. When ever you think about a change, start a list. Write down “Pros” and “Cons” and “$$$” (for capital outlay). Then put it in a drawer for 2-3 weeks. Review it, and if it is still appealing, put it with other appealing ones until you are sick to death of them or one climbs to the top. Just sayin’. You know we only say this because we love you and you are still in a vulnerable place.

  39. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    2:41 pm on January 23rd, 2015

    BSD, You are right – $3-5,000 per month I believe, for nursing homes. Lower level assisted living would be less.

    And yes, it is Del Webb who is the developer of Sun City. We have one in Huntley, which is a few miles south of Woodstock. It is really nice, and people love it there. I know you can have pets, but there may be fence restrictions.

    Must agree with HOH. T & G’s mama would be a formidable opponent!

  40. Tupper's Mama
    2:42 pm on January 23rd, 2015

    HOH – awww, shucks.
    We should also mention that we also channel Tupper and Gilly.

    wait for it…..

    On an Insurance Related Subject…Someone Here recently had a very Unpleasant Surprise at her local F A R M A C Y. When she went in to pick up a RX she was told there is now a $100 Deductible due upfront, which brought the total to over $200.
    YEEP. At that Exorbitant Price it is no longer in the budget. She says she will now have to go to Plan 2, whatever that is.
    Insurance Plan has also increased by $55 a month in 2015. Of course this means our Treatie Budget is taking a pounding.

  54. O'Howlers
    3:51 pm on January 23rd, 2015

    What is with these insurance companies? We don’t trust any of them.

  55. Herd of Hound
    3:51 pm on January 23rd, 2015

    Mom went to horsepistol for a procedure and was told she hadn’t met her deductible. Being her tactful self, she replied at the top of her voice, ” I DON”T HAVE A FREEKING DEDUCTABLE!, Please give me my card back and I will go home.” The hosp people claimed they had a new computer system and errors were being made. 3 months later, she got a check for $90.00 overpayment. She thinks medical insurance is a racket! Mom just wishes she could think things out like the pink bulldozer instead of being a short female dog!

    Hi everyone. Good luck to all those doing battles.
    It did snow another 2-3″ last night and “snow showers” are predicted for the next couple of days with a little “light rain” in the mix. Doesn’t sound like there will be the huge dump of snow they were predicting last night.

  60. Herd of Hound
    4:30 pm on January 23rd, 2015

    CHobbit, here the ‘puter is saying snow in your neck of the woods tomorrow and next Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon. Hope it is correct.

  61. Tenzing
    4:33 pm on January 23rd, 2015

    Buddy and Leno: I took up permanent residence under the Quilt some time ago. I would be happy to host your Melanie under the Quilt for what I hope will be a short stay for her. I keep the Quilt stocked in snacks. Have I mentioned I make a great pillow with the right balance of support, softness and gentle breathing? I pride myself on doing a good job. Head bumps, to your girl.

  62. Herd of Hound
    4:40 pm on January 23rd, 2015

    Buddy, tell your Melanie to take Tenzing up on his proposition. Darah here is a good pillow BUT Tenzing is a superlative pillow, one of a kind! Understanding, warm, soft and with a supply of fantastic nacks!

  63. Herd of Hound
    4:41 pm on January 23rd, 2015

    GAH! Damned missing “s” again. Not nacks…Snacks!

  64. Buddy and Leno
    4:44 pm on January 23rd, 2015

    Yes, I do believe I remember Tenzing mentioning being a good pillow. I’m sure Melanie would love some temporary space under the quilt. Also….herd of hound? What happened to the rest of them?

  65. Herd of Hounds
    4:57 pm on January 23rd, 2015

    Buddy, not to worry, we mentioned earlier that our “s” was sticking! Hounds intact, TY for asking.

  66. Thieves!
    5:08 pm on January 23rd, 2015

    Buddy and Leno: Tenzing may be our paw, but we have no pillow related talent. That’s not to say we are not helpful when one of our own is sick or injured. Wheelchair races around the nurses stations are where we shine. We will visit Melanie to rev up the wheelchair. The division of duties is simple. We’ll do the pulling, she is in charge of getting better.

    My Kindle bit the dust today. It won’t hold a charge for long so it was time to say adieu. I went out on Amazon to see when I bought that Kindle and it was Feb. 8, 2009! Six years! I guess I got my money’s worth. I ordered the Kindle Voyage and was pleased to see I could take it on 5 payments of $39 with no added interest charges. I’ll get it Feb. 11th.

    MPM, was yours a regular Kindle, like we have? Ours is only used for reading, and it is old too. But so far so good.

    We are doing a Pizza (and wine) Friday. Talk to youse tomorrow.

  71. Buddy and Leno
    5:53 pm on January 23rd, 2015

    Whew…glad that the hounds are all OK. Also, I haven’t kept up with the new Kindle models. I bought a Kindle Fire HDX at the end of 2013, mostly to check out its new accessibility features. Best I can say for that is…I don’t hate it. Perhaps not a ringing endorsement. I like my iThingy a lot better. Is no matter; best time ever to be a blind guy…we’ve got an embarrassment of riches where books are concerned. Well, at least, if you’re in a wealthy country, anyway. It’s a start. I can’t tell you how exciting it is to be able to get books at the same time (and same price) as everyone else gets them.

  72. Mollypop's Mom
    5:58 pm on January 23rd, 2015

    O’Howlers, my Kindle was the second one. The first had keys that were on a slant. Then came mine and the keys lined up straight.

  73. Mollypop's Mom
    6:22 pm on January 23rd, 2015

    If I remember correctly, way back, B had the Kindle with the keys on a slant.

    ML: Before you make any big decision about where to move, might I offer my place up north? Outside, I have a nice house with fresh straw, and I also have the run of the front porch. Inside, my dog pillow is in prime location—near enough to the woodstove and front and center views of the TV. I’ve also been making a play for Doc’s loveseat. I should have this premise secured by the time you make your way here.

We offer our puppy-sitting services. We can probably get character references to vouch for our expertise, skill, and high morale fiber from Teddy the Ruff Rider, Henry and Keiko, and BooBear’s Pancho and Lefty.

    More to Martha: Belle Starr is packing up her ribbons and things to help you will increasing your inventory of pink.

    I usually send my checks to Snowhook rather than using PayPal but I don’t begrudge them taking a bit (that is how they make money). When you use your credit card at a store, it is the store that pays a bit to the credit card company. But if you want the full 100% to go to the dogs, send a check. 🙂

    Go Amalia!

    I’ve opened the door in preparation to broiling a flank steak. Trying not to set of smoke alarms. So a question for you cooks: I always end up with a broiling pan that is hard to clean. I can usually clean the base pan but the upper pan ends up with half the finish scrubbed off (ugh). Am I doing something wrong or is there a better broiling pan out there that I don’t know about?

    Oh NO!…CHobbit is going to try and burn down her house again with that delish flank steak!…Heh!heh!…Maskers and I were lost in a haze of smoke last time this happened. Or was it a haze of red wine?….sniff!…Now I cannot be sure. I just remember CHobbit running around trying to get the smoke out of the house…chorkel!

    My head is trying to explode. Del Web communities are nice, but you still own your home, which I am trying to get away from. I want someone else to be responsible when the slab leaks, or the plumbing backs up, or the bricks fall off or any other number of kat-tastrophes that could happen. The cottages I looked at yesterday were very nice, a $3490 a month! In all fairness, that does include a meal, housekeeping,utilities, maintenance and other amenities, but it is a little hard to wrap my head around. It was so cute though. I would have to get rid of a lot of furniture, but that would be fine. I think I must sleep now and not think. Oh wait. I have not had dinner!

    Thanks for letting me process. Expect more to come.
    Love y’all

    We sent a check to Snowhook today. Don’t do Paypal.

    ML, $42,000 is a pretty big chunk, and you still have all the other expenses – car, insurance, medical, clothing, entertainment, etc. I myself would not do it. If you want to avoid the pitfalls of home ownership, you might still be better off renting a home or condo. Do you have a financial planner or accountant you trust?

    ML – at least you don’t have to make a voice right away. You are just in the thinking process.

    Thieves and MPM – I have NO idea what you could be referring to. Alas, the neat, high power car we had when you were here has been traded in for the current vehicle. This one has a piddly little 4 cylinders. Poo

    Hobbit – spray your broiler pan with Pam. If that doesn’t work, instead of scrubbing it, just spray it with oven cleaner and slip it into a plastic garbage bag overnight. Next morning, rinse it off and viola- no scrubbing. Also works on the old crud that gets stuck on pans.

    Golinka!…That stuff about spraying the broiler pan with Pam is all well and good, but what about all the smoke alarms CHobbit is surly going to set-off while actually broiling the flank steak?…snort!…That is the real problem at paw…sniff!cough!cough!

    If you put your exhaust fan on and crack a door or window for draft BEFORE you start the broiler, you have less chance of setting off the smoke alarm.

    If you order take-out you have an even lesser chance of setting off the smoke alarm. Heh.

    I ate smoke free. So did Sadie but I had to forgive her first for getting into the garbage while I was out. I am guessing that she doesn’t approve of the half rations she is on.

    Thank you Amalia

    I agree with the Thieves. I never use the broiler. If I do whatever I cook is burned. I have a short attention span.

    HOH’s sticky s key is funny.

    I had a keyboard problem today. All of a sudden the attached type cover (which is what Microsoft calls the detachable keyboard) would not type. I had to use the onscreen keyboard and it covers up half the screen and is on the wrong slant and just plain annoys me.

    But tech support fixed me right up. I had to download all available updates and then, thank dog, I can type again like normal. That is one of the reasons I did NOT get a tablet. I want to type like I used to type. Not hunt and peck.

    Rio: I hope you and Masquers were in a wine haze that particular night. I was so embarrassed running around the house with alarms blaring. However I do know what circuit breaker to turn off now.

    CHobbit!…If you remember Maskers and I were happily eating our flank steak and that pasta which cooked in a magical 4 minutes…snort!…While you were frantically dashing around fanning smoke alarms….heh!heh!…We could have helped, but you seemed to have it all in paw…chuffle!…Plus, after all that wine we were very hungry indeed!

    Just got in from shoveling 6″ of fresh snow off my deck and driveway. It is still snowing but I thought I wouldn’t wait until morning when I might have 10+” to shovel. So yesterday I shoveled, this morning I shoveled and tonight I shoveled = hopefully this means good things for the Iditarod trail.

    Ooodles of noodles.

    We have snow too!!! 6-1/2 inches as of now, with more to come they say. Woo Hoo! We do wish Alaska had it, but whatthe heck…if it’s here, we PLAY!!!!

    Fargo is trying to break a more than 70 year record for the least snow. I hope it will all go up to AK instead.

    And now, for your listening pleasure, Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers, a band that rides in the back of Hot Rize’s bus and sometimes plays when Hot Rize takes a break.
