    Good morning, everyone! Question about the article. Dog’s left and right or percieved left and right? We are confused.
    Monday…mid-autumn Monday!

    “Dexter”? I know that there is a tv show of that name that I’ve never watched but what does it refer to in today’s title?

    The article is interesting and some of the comments crack me up.

    HOH: One of the comments states that it’s the dog’s right or left not the watcher’s right or left.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning, what if the dog is a “lefty” ?

    Interesting article. Will require some more astute observation of the nation within.

    Yes, we need to hear from Rose and Wolfie. Barb says she will email Wolfie this morning. Not sure we have Rose’s email address.

    Barb says she is getting a building permit this morning. Not sure what it is all about, but she says my backyard is going to get bigger and I will like it.

    Morning all. Ice cold here today. Brrrr.
    At least the sun is out – Wrotten Kats are sunbathing in the window light.

  8. Wolfie
    9:21 am on November 4th, 2013

    Good morning everyone. We have been in lurk mode, and so quiet inside that our souls echo. But we are so glad to hear that Barb is recovering!

    OMD. I know this one. Dexter is right and sinister is left. I know this ’cause mom’s left handed and she’s always known left was thought to be sinister.

    Oh, Wolfie. May your soul be at peace again.

    Best wishes to Everybody for the week.

    B&M: Building? Exciting, keep us informed.
    Royals and Pack: Glad that y’all at least have sun.
    Wolfie: Good to hear from you. “So quiet inside that our souls echo”. Poignant. Lurk, get under the quilt, then come home.

    I learned a new word. (Thank you Spence.) “Dexter” is an adjective and means “located on the right side.” In heraldry it refers to the side of the shield on the wearer’s right. An obsolete definition is auspicious or favorable and it is derived from Latin “dexteritas” meaning skilled. We get “dexterity” from the same word.

    One meaning of “sinister” is on the left side. It’s derived from Latin “sinister” meaning on the left or unlucky. Somewhere along the way it got the meaning of threatening or evil. Interesting.

  12. B. Stover
    9:38 am on November 4th, 2013

    Bluecat: I just saw your comment.

  13. SnowBella

    Head bumps to Wolfie.

  14. Barb & Maggie
    9:46 am on November 4th, 2013

    Barb is a leftie too. Now we know that she is also threatening and evil. Wow, who knew!

    HOH, Barb says it is not exactly building, but more like fence moving. A building permit is still required by the city of Woodstock. More money for them!

  15. Tupper and Gilly
    9:47 am on November 4th, 2013

    Statistics say that globally only 12% of the world’s population is left handed, and that although population numbers have increased dramatically, the percentage of lefties has remained constant.

    Being left handed, Mama is always curious about the subject. For example, she likes to see if there is a higher leftie percentage per set population – for example, artists at a specific show, diners in a restaurant, etc.

    So, can we ask – how many Plunderers are lefties. So far we can count:
    Spencer Quinn
    BlueCat
    Tupper’s Mama

    And Wolfie – you are a Plunderer – now and forever. You needn’t ever feel so alone that your soul echoes. Plunderers don’t let Plunderers echo alone.

  16. Tupper and Gilly
    9:49 am on November 4th, 2013

    Correction: Lefties are now:
    Spencer Quinn
    BlueCat
    Tupper’s Mama
    Barb,, Maggie’s Mom

  17. B. Stover
    10:00 am on November 4th, 2013

    “Left” is derived from Old English “left” which meant idle, weak, useless.

    This is from Dictionary.com:

    “The L. word was used in augury in the sense of ‘unlucky, unfavorable’ (omens, especially bird flights, seen on the left hand were regarded as portending misfortune), and thus sinister acquired a sense of ‘harmful, unfavorable, adverse.’ This was from Gk. influence, reflecting the early Gk. practice of facing north when observing omens; in genuine Roman auspices, the left was favorable. Bend (not “bar”) sinister in heraldry indicates illegitimacy and preserves the lit. sense of ‘on the left side.'”

    That must be where the sense of “born on the left side of the blanket” comes from. (Note: I ended a sentence with a preposition.)

    Extended Plunderer family leftie: tha Daddy Dawg.

  19. Pancho
    10:05 am on November 4th, 2013

    Our Lady says Lefty was easy to name. He assures me it is because of the spot on his left ear and nothing to do with being sinister. I, of course, am an angel.

  20. B. Stover
    10:06 am on November 4th, 2013

    Anyway, “left/sinister” is, as T&G point out, due to the fact that the majority of people are right-handed, making that “normal.” This proves the human tendency of thinking that something “different” is “abnormal” and therefore suspicious.

    But language is fun!

  21. B. Stover
    10:07 am on November 4th, 2013

    Forgot: I’m right-handed but my brother is left-handed and I’ve never considered him sinister (in the negative sense).

  22. B. Stover
    10:09 am on November 4th, 2013

    Lefty: I have a portrait of you and I know that you are NOT sinister.

  23. Tupper and Gilly
    10:21 am on November 4th, 2013

    Pancho and Lefty may be sinners…but not sinister

    10:22 am on November 4th, 2013

    Staff is a righty, but AbbietheKitty is a lefty. Alice M. Johnson is a righty but Abbie does everything with her left paw first.

    Whenever I see that photo I think of an early 20th Century man dressed up in a suit and a vest with a watch chain across his tummy. I don’t know why.

  27. Tupper and Gilly
    10:40 am on November 4th, 2013

    We have been reading about lefthandedness all morning. While it appears that 8% of women are lefties, men comprise 12%.

    But in the four legged world, lefties and righties are just about 50/50.

    What does that say about the “superiority” of two leggeds?

  28. Melanie
    11:13 am on November 4th, 2013

    Hmmm, so if you are ambidextrous that means you are a saint?

    The Pack’s tails go in circles. The better to clear off tables. Must totally confuse dogs.

    YSAS is left eye dominate and right handed. No wonder he had trouble with some sports.

  29. Lefty
    11:19 am on November 4th, 2013

    B and Golinka: Thank you for the character reference. Is my face not the face of the innocent and wrongly accused?

  30. Lefty
    11:27 am on November 4th, 2013

    Oh, for the record, I found out yesterday that I can steal a glove off my Lady’s hand even when I’m lying down in my dog house. It is something I’ve wanted to try for a long time. The opportunity presented itself when I was taking a nap inside my house. My Lady thought she could give me a snuggle with hopes my sleepiness would cause me to have manners—rookie mistake. She had a glove on her hand when she put it inside my dog house, but not when she pulled it out of my dog house.

  31. Macy the min-pin
    11:28 am on November 4th, 2013

    You are correct, Lefty. Your face is not the face of the innocent and wrongly accused. heh-heh

    Macy,feeling contrary this a.m.

  32. B. Stover
    11:35 am on November 4th, 2013

    I thought of something else: In French, right is “droit” (direct) and left is “gauche” from which English derives the same word meaning awkward or tactless.

    I’ll stop now.

  33. Herd of Hounds
    11:49 am on November 4th, 2013

    Strange as this may seem, I do not wag my tail.

    Greetings!

    Grizz and I are both right-handed.

    In Spanish, if you are right-handed, “usa la mano derecha”
    If you are left-handed, “usa la mano izquierda”

    Wolfie: I feel your pain. I have had a painful fews days.

    FOR HIRE: Nice, responsible woman of a certain age, to work as a handler for OFM. Will give tummies, scritches, and scoop poop. Will always listen to my mama Luna, and will make sure my VBFF never runs out of sparkles. Will live in a little cabin in the woods, but might have to use the bathroom in the main house.

    Will also dog or cat sit for youse that are going to the Iditarod.

    Wose: You’re hired. Belle Starr is beside herself with excitement.

    Macy: you are a silly, little min-pin! We’d give you a head bump if we didnt think we’d knock you over.

    Our Lady just landed at her second to last stop before her destination. It is winter at the top of the world.

    Howlers, we watched the Kennedy show last night and found their theory to be the most plausible heard yet.

    Previous to my add: Will take care of birds and chickens, too,

  45. Barb & Maggie
    2:17 pm on November 4th, 2013

    Macy, We agree about the show last night. We mentioned that we recently saw someone on tv that said Oswald might have shot Kennedy by mistake when he was aiming at the governor. It was not a theory stated on last night’s show.

    Time to finish up our Hillerman book and then having a nap.

  46. Wose
    2:20 pm on November 4th, 2013

    Pancho and Lefty: is the little cabin in the woods ready for a tenant? I’m now in between jobs. I can book a flight leaving tomorrow. I will wear many extra sets of gloves…….

    Dexter and sinister.
    BlueCat& BStover: I hadn’t a clue what that meant and I never would’ve guessed right and left. Good information.

    My brother was a leftie and a redhead.

    Melanie: Do the Newfs tails twirl clockwise or counterclockwise? Or…does it depend on whether they have spotted Zoe or a big black bear.

    The computer is fine, was fine yesterday but I felt too blah to post. The weather was cold and grey. Same this morning but I forced myself outside and the grey separated into whites, blacks, silvers and all shades in between, surfaces covered with beautiful frozen dew drops. I have to pull out the full spectrum lights or I may try to hibernate.

    Thinking of Wolfie, Wose, Nana and Melanie, Dima, Tenzing and Grace.

    Get thee to the sunnery Dawson. What is your length of daytime right now? Sun up at 10 a.m. and down at 3 p.m.? I remember why you often came down to visit in between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Rose, In between jobs, eh? I bet they would love to have such a gentle dog handler in AK. I know a couple of 4 legged’s who will give you a high recommendation.

    Wolfie, Remember when you are empty to come here and let us fill you up. I don’t think the empty thing is good for you. Hugs from North Dakota for you, and Melanie, and Nana, and Dima and Tenzing and Grace and anyone else who needs some sunlight in their life.

    3:30 pm on November 4th, 2013

    Dawson: you are mom’s inspiration. You mentioned working in the not too scary basement and now she has dived into the basement closets to find vintage fur coats (2) of rabbit and a shearling lamb shawl. What other treasures lurk down there? Only the shadow knows!

  53. dawson
    3:41 pm on November 4th, 2013

    Staff: The sun set at 4:13 last night. It got light at 7:36.

    HOH: Cool! I believe those coats would be wearable in Alaska. (Thanks for reminding me that I’m not done in the basement.)

  54. Herd of Hounds
    3:47 pm on November 4th, 2013

    Dawson: Problem with the coats, one is a rabbit bolero style (butt freeze). The other is rabbit and merino wool, usable, BABY BLUE to go over dress (but I may bring it for “fancy” and use my Snow Lion mountaineering jacket for real time). Again, my stuff IS vintage!

  55. Wose

    Howlers: Yes, I am currently unemployed. My boss completely humiliated me last Thursday, and I have not gone back yet. Tomorrow, I have an appointment. In HR. Grizz is coming as my back-up. He was in HR, and knows the right things to say. We will be trying to negotiate a separation, but we will sue if we must.

    Dawson – take it from us – the Newfs tails spin clockwise here, but when they blur down to visit Liz the tails go counter clockwise.

    Rose – awww. Is this maybe possibly a good thing?

    Howlers – we have met your Mom. She is smart and funny, and we would not want to be on the bad side of her. But sinister? Really – your Mom is about as sinister as a chocolate chip cookie. And we mean that in a GOOD way.

    Meanwhile – Our Mama is abnormal, gauche and tactless, but not born on the left side of the blanket.

    I think that is all the things I have forgotten for the day. Unless there are one or two more. I’m off to finish an Alexander McCall Smith book, 44 Scotland Street series, excellent as usual.

    Once again – just catching up. It has been such a busy day and now we are in bed early. Mama works at the polls, morning shift, so they have to be up at 5, which in her book is just criminal.

    What? We can’t make up our own words on this here blog. We thought non-sequitureous was pretty good, even if the otter just about popped his cork over that one.

    Rio – cool tree.
    Staff – cool feather
    Pancho and Lefty – cool runnings
    And the rest of you – good night

    Mom likes scary and I can always put my paws over my eyes. We would like to know if the new Dracula show is any good. It is on too late for us but mom says she can always buy the dvds if the show lasts that long.

    What is this? My very, most special, best friend, Wose was treated badly. This makes me so mad! This also makes my Two-legged so made, I heard her upset, Rio words from the top of the world.

    Wose: I’m glad Grizz will be with you tomorrow. Head bumps.

    Wio: My Two-legged loves your Never Again tree!

    Bellie!…I can’t read what you just wrote because I have my paws over my pug-eyes…wheeze!….She did indeed turn on the first episode of Dracula and I can say that SiberH will also have his paws over his eyes if his Maw is brave enough to buy it…grunt!…It is very interesting (also) so far…sniff!

    Thanks for the review, Rio. Mom says it sounds promising. The network has not given it a good time slot so I hope it can make it for a full season. Someone in the house should buy a recorder.
    That would solve problems like this one.

    I think Rio’s friend’s tree would sell well if the public could see it. Maybe the tree would get easier to make if she made several of them.

    End!…Only at the very end did it get easier for her to work on the tree…sniff!…She totally abandoned the idea of trying to copy that artist’s work, so this tree does not look much like the tree CHobbit really wanted…grunt!…My friend is worrit over that part…sniff!…But CHobbit seems to want it or she would be selling it to the highest bidder right now….chuffle!

    Feet!…Do youse see the two little feet-stands at the bottom of the tree?…sniff!….This is the ONLY part that looks like the original tree…heh!heh!…My friend hates those little feet. She should rip them off…..gah!

    Feet or no feet, it is beautiful.

  109. Siber-H
    10:38 pm on November 4th, 2013

    Could the tree have a trunk like a real tree instead of the little feet? Your friend might be happier with that.

    10:39 pm on November 4th, 2013

    Rio, Duh, it could have been a big lavender leaf! We still love the tree.

    Night all, we are going beddy bye.

    10:41 pm on November 4th, 2013

    SiberH!….My friend would have rather put a thin trunk on the tree (and she still might do that)…sniff!…But that would be up to the commissioner herself, CHobbit…heh!

    Never ever again? sob sob sob. That CHarris is first again. sniff

    I really really like that tree.

    I am sure the next one will be much easier and you can put any damn trunk you want on it. Really.

    Dracula!…They advertise a lot on this new show…grump!…I recognize one of the actors, but cannot place him…sniff!…Lots of English actors – the main character (Dracula) is speaking with a put-on American accent which is odd…sniff!

    Good night Bellie, and all you others. I am going to get ready for bed also. Maybe this week my bedroom window will get finished and I can put the half of the bedroom that is making the quilt room impassible back in its proper place. I can’t breath in the quilt room right now.

    Melanie check your SDD when you get up.

    Dracula should not have an American accent…gah. Bram Stoker’s Dracula cannot be improved upon so I wish they would stop trying.
    Mom says she still might like the tv program.

    Rio, Your friend’s Christmas tree is a big hit on this blog.

    SiberH!…We finished the first ep of Dracula without too much trauma …gah!….Then Beau insisted we turn on Monday Night Football to check out the score. We saw the most hilarious thing…heh!heh!…It is Green Bay Packers (cheese heads) vs Da Chicago Bears. There are 3 guys from Chicago sitting in the stands with perfect renditions of Cheese Graters on their heads….hoooo!Haaa!….Beau got a huge guffaw out of that shot!…chorkel!…I have to admit, it was pretty darn funny…snort!

    Howdy! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed
    to ask. Does managing a well-established website like yours require a large amount of work?
    I’m completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary every day.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for
    brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
