Here’s Spence last night with Rio’s friend Patty at the Tattered Cover, one of the very best indies in the country. Tonight at 7 he’ll be at the Douglas County Libraries (Philip S. Miller branch, 100 S. Wilcox) in Castle Rock.

    Thank you Patty. The tour seems to be going well.

    Good morning all.

    I wonder if Patty got all Rio’s questions answered, books signed and non-blurry photos taken.

    The sun is shining (I guess I should have put some free stuff out at the curb) so I’m off on a bike ride.

    Just catching up from yesterday here…and must say again that Hobbit’s guests are missing the boat big time as they travel! The gift of seeing everything around us can only enhance the memories one takes away from any journey. HOH is right to bring up not just seeing but all the senses. I admit to having to restrain my tactile senses around art! I want to touch, especially at quilt events where the little signs plead with us observers not to touch. And smell…my Schnauzers, Zoe and Murphy, thrive on smell! I am not nose to the ground like them, but I adore my lavender and chocolate mint plants and anything else that pops up at me while I water my garden. I do loathe the squirrel that is eating my young green beans and pattypan squash in spite of fencing, though. What to do? At least the squirrel seems to loathe cucumbers and tomatoes and never touches the chives or basil!

    ALR! Ga…there’s a good reason I don’t like museums, mostly. If it’s not behind glass, you still can’t touch it anyway. Except, I did get to climb over a barrier and get up close and personal with one of Amelia Earhart’s airplanes once. And…mystery solved, I thought Rio’s friend was named something different than Patty. … So it’s Rio’s friend’s friend. Which is still Rio’s friend, except a different one…any friend of Rio’s, etc. etc.

    A belated Happy Saturday to all–I’ve been trying to catch up.
    C. Hobbit, Zoe, Martha–Thank you for the information about upcoming nuptials. I loved the purple butterfly attire in the photo.
    I have been enjoying following along passively–saving my energy for the signing tomorow.

    Buddy!…Yes, I’ve been told that Patty is my friend’s oldest friend. Not old in years, but in the length of time they have known each other and called each other pals…snort!…They met when they were 12 years old and have never had a quarrel. Patty has a great sense of humor and is a Teacher. Those kids run her ragged. Look how skinny she is…heh!heh!…But tough as nails, oh yes, and she has always been an amazing athlete….chuffle!

    Fargo!…OHHHH My Dawg! That trailer has me hook, line and curly tail….snort!…All those amazing actors! Did you see the krazy-young blond guy from Breaking Bad? And Jeffery Donavon from Burn Notice?…Yeeeep!…Plus a whole bunch more…Zow!

    Good afternoon to everyone. Mom says the G son is running her ragged! She had him make a list of what he wants to do while here in the “greenest state in the land of the free”. Today has included lunch at Hardee’s (there are none of those in CA) and going to see Pixel. Mom said it was cute, lots of ’80’s memories and memorable music but too loud, Loud, LOUD for her taste. Buddy, we can see your point about museums (pun intended). Glad Rio’s friend’s friend got to meet with OFA. Hope She got Rio’s book pawtographed for her.

    Tired!…Someone here is dawg-tired and calling it quits on packing and de-cluttering for the day…whew!…She thinks she can actually see progress today unlike the last weekend of uncontrolled chaos…snuffle!

    Photo!…Patty sent us some other photos and I have the “OK” to post this one as well. Boo-Bear must not have taken any photos during her time with 2! count them 2! authors…grunt!…What’s up with that nonsense? Anyway, here is our fave author in our fave position at a book signing…snorkel!…Unless drinking a beer with me counts as a fave position…heh!heh!

    6:20 pm on July 25th, 2015

    Stance!…Doesn’t it look like Patty has that “I’m the teacher and you will do what I tell you to do” stance?….snort!…Arms apart, looking down on her victim…heh!heh!…(I sure hope she reads this…guffle)…sneeze!

    Sign!..“Sign your name 100 times in that book or you will not get to leave! And I will flunk you out of book signing class – summer school will be in your future pal!”…chorkel!…I can hear her say it!…buffle!

    Perhaps Spence being a southpaw has her miffed/baffled/confused?

    I can hear Patty saying, “No, Mr. Quinn! Make it out “To the benevolent Pug, from your most humble servant.”

    I took my puppy Bella to her first Pints for Pups today. I had to leave my dog Kat at home, which broke my heart, but you know I must make sure I giet this puppy acclimated properly.. Bella was a star. Everyone loved her and kept asking what she is. I thought it was fairly obvious that she is a puppy. Makes you wonder about people if they can’t figure that out.
    Bella’s sister Snow was there as well. I had my paws full, let me tell you.

    We have just two words to say about the show this weekend.

    And another day yet to come.
    Let the twirling commence

    Meashka – those babies are just too sweet.
    And lucky, lucky doggies in so many ways.

    Sounds like beers on Golinka!!! Woo and Hoo indeed!

    Rio, I had my fair share of pints. Oh yes indeedy.

    Rio – this is our favorite kind of crowd.
    “I can’t decide between this one and that one. I guess I better take both.”.

    Yes, m,am. I will get those wrapped up for you right away!

    Tupper’s Mama: That is my kind of shopping! Whoo and Hooo, indeed!

    Meashka: Excellent pictures of the puppy sisters being well-behaved.

    Barb, Maggie and Lucy: Not sure if you are watching the Pan Am games but they have horse jumping (not sure the real name of the sport). Wow. Beautiful horses!

    Dawson, go for it!
    Oh my dog! those AKK puppies are drop dead gawgeous. WE, the two black Canadiens of the HOH, think our color is far superior but mom tells us a balance of blonde and black is great.
    Is Spence still copying lines or is he winging off to Orange, CA for the last stop?

  31. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:27 pm on July 25th, 2015

    Diane, Please post some pictures tomorrow after the signing. We want to see what another Chetster looks like.
    Rio, great pictures of your friend’s friend, Patty with OFA.

    Golinka!…Someone here is hoping the big Yard/Estate Sale goes just that way…snort!…My friend worked and worked today against the Mother-Current and decluttered a big portion of the downstairs…chuffle!…Hard going, but it looks good especially when she imagines all the furniture that will be taken upstairs for the sale….wheeze!

  34. Tupper's Mama
    9:31 pm on July 25th, 2015

    Rio – your Friend certainly does work hard for the money. All that work and caring for Pugs too?!?
    Sounds like sainthood can’t be far behind.

  35. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:41 pm on July 25th, 2015

    Saint!…HA! HA!…She would never qualify for Saint Hood..snort!…Especially not tonight. She is extremely pissed off and royally mad…sniff! …I do not believe Saints are allowed emotional emotions, are they?…wheeze!

    9:55 pm on July 25th, 2015

    WE will never move again, our mom said so because the DDD said he could die in this house! WE like the 1 and 1/2 acre of yard 🙂 Lots of fun (rodents, birdies and, when mom isn’t lazy, sushi in the pond).

  38. Tupper's Mama
    9:59 pm on July 25th, 2015

    We used to move every two years or so. Now we have been settled in for so long the junque has just piled up.

    Next move- into a Winnebago with minimalist decor. And off into the sunset.

    Bedtime for these bonzos. Another show day to tackle tomorrow.

    G’night, family.
