    Good Morning Chet, Spence & Admin.
    We know they will be a big Comfort to everyone.

    Melanie: Give a Big Bear Hug to Zoe.
    er…maybe just some Love instead.

    First!…It’s going to be a good day after all…snort!

    Gah!

    OMD…Sorry, Rio…

    Greetings!

    I saw that story about the thearpy dogs in Newtown on the news last night. They were beautiful dogs, of Wookie’s breed.

    Shout out to early birds Bear and Rio!

  6. B. Stover
    9:48 am on December 18th, 2012

    Good morning all.

  7. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:51 am on December 18th, 2012

    Grump!…If I wouldn’t have gone back and put that apostrophe in “it’s” for Stover, I would have beat Bear out for first…grunt!

  8. Masquers
    9:56 am on December 18th, 2012

    Riö: It’s not easy to beat a hungry Bear when he’s up in the morning foraging for food.

  9. Princess Sam
    9:59 am on December 18th, 2012

    Good Morning!

  10. Barb & Maggie

    Too bad about being second Rio! sob

    We saw the Golden therapy dogs on the news too. They are from a Chicago suburb and travel to different disaster areas to lend a paw.

    Wonder how Zoe is doing this morning.

  11. B. Stover
    10:19 am on December 18th, 2012

    Technically Rose, Howlers, Melanie, Macy and Bear were first because they all posted this morning on yesterday’s blog. However, I really appreciate the apostrophe usage Rio. Thank you.

    (And I’ll be so glad when that blasted picture of steak tartare is no longer on here.)

    Hey everyone. Now we have seen the worst of the worst. Tori Spelling in the Scrooge role. GAAAAAHHHH!!!!

    That’s it. We are going out to do errands, and hopefully find some Christmas spirit.

  13. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:28 am on December 18th, 2012

    Tartare!…Steak?…snort!…I thought that was moose tartare…gurgle!

  14. Barb & Maggie
    10:31 am on December 18th, 2012

    Bee, Just pretend it is a red cookie with sprinkles on top.

    T & G, Tori Spelling can not act. If her dad was not Aaron Spelling she would have never made it to the movies, IMHO.
    Does seem like she is a good mom though.

    Two movies we like on Lifetime: Undercover Christmas and The Road to Christmas.

    10:38 am on December 18th, 2012

    Spence: The dogs do help a little.
    E-story: Yes, please. I’d like to know about Chet’s beginnings.

    Rio: Don’t bring up the M-word!

  16. B. Stover
    10:38 am on December 18th, 2012

    I usually have a good imagination but thinking of it as a red cookie is not possible. It’s worse than all the talk of moose whatever.

  17. Masquers
    10:43 am on December 18th, 2012

    B: We are thinking the same thing!
    B&M: You have the purrfect solution…imagine it is something else (no, not moose tartare, Riö).

  18. BearSpiritDog
    10:44 am on December 18th, 2012

    You mean…it’s NOT a red cookie with sprinkles on top?

  19. BearSpiritDog
    10:46 am on December 18th, 2012

    I really did think it was a Red Cookie…Sigh.

  20. Siber-H
    11:11 am on December 18th, 2012

    Goldens are so good at bringing comfort to people. I have never seen Sibers in that line of work, but I am sure some would be good at it. Mom says, “maybe”.

    The steak tartare sure looks delish.

    We are wondering how Zoe is doing. Melanie will know more after she visits her today.

  21. B. Stover
    11:14 am on December 18th, 2012

    Siber H: Then would you please eat it and get the picture off of here.

  22. Rose
    11:18 am on December 18th, 2012

    Siber-H: I know several of your kind who bring great comfort…Luna, Belle Starr, Kat. I think you would be wonderful at it.

  23. Barb & Maggie
    11:21 am on December 18th, 2012

    Laughing here, Bear. Barb also thought it was a red cookie for days. LOL

    Hate to admit this Bee, but Barb likes steak tartare. It has to be made with really good and fresh ground sirloin, and have some red onion, capers and salt and pepper on top. Yummers!

  24. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:24 am on December 18th, 2012

    Gross!…I sure hope Rebecca did not die of moose poisoning…gurgle!…She sounded rather ill last night…wheeze!

  25. Siber-H
    11:26 am on December 18th, 2012

    Wose, Mom would never let me try to be a dog who comforts people. I am one of those aloof Sibers, but I did like the Royals when I met them. I would like you. I know I would.

    Stover, lol I wish I could eat it.

  26. Masquers
    11:41 am on December 18th, 2012

    The steak tartare…So…when it is gone we will know where it went.

  27. Siber-H
    11:44 am on December 18th, 2012

    Perhaps moose head stew will be the next picture up there.

  28. B. Stover
    11:58 am on December 18th, 2012

    Is steak tartar eaten raw or cooked? (In the picture it’s raw.) Yuck.

  29. Siber-H
    12:06 pm on December 18th, 2012

    It is eaten raw. Mom also says yuck.

  30. B. Stover
    12:10 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Thank you Siber H’s mom.

  31. B. Stover
    12:11 pm on December 18th, 2012

    And Barb, raw food is not good for you.

  32. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:12 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Funny!…I over-heard the funniest thing this morning…snort!…Her mother said my friend can make Christmas dinner. She will just stay out of the kitchen….ho!ho!ho!…What a load of crap…heh!heh!

  33. dawson
    12:29 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Let me change the subject.
    Prime Rib! There is a large prime rib in the freezer just waiting for Christmas. Oh boy!

  34. Rose
    12:36 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Siber-H, that feeling is mutual.

  35. Rose
    12:37 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Prime Rib, medium rare, the dinner of my dreams!

  36. Barb & Maggie
    12:46 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Can’t beat Prime Rib! However, I think we are having turkey and all the trimmings.

    One more comment about tartare for Bee. That is why it has to be very fresh. Otherwise bacteria could form. Sometimes if Barb is making a burger with fresh lean beef, she will take a little hunk and put salt and pepper on it and eat it raw. Not ground turkey though, that has to be cooked.

  37. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:47 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Ham!…We are going to have Honey Baked Ham…snorkel!…Now maybe someone can figure out the rest of the menu. What would Debbie LM do?…wheeze!

  38. B. Stover
    12:50 pm on December 18th, 2012

    I’m eating a fresh Florida orange from my brother. Delish! (There is also grapefruit…yum….)

    tartar *faint-thunk*

  40. Mollypop's Mom
    1:02 pm on December 18th, 2012

    I had the most wonderful Steak Tartare in Paris at Café de Flore. I haven’t had it since because nothing else could measure up to that. Of course, the wine and the atmosphere helped too.

  41. BearSpiritDog
    1:02 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Prime Rib! Now you’re talk’n.

  42. Masquers
    1:04 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Heh! Mollys Mom, I am sure the wine helped immensely!

  43. B. Stover
    1:05 pm on December 18th, 2012

    I think I’ll become a vegetarian….

  44. B. Stover
    1:06 pm on December 18th, 2012

    …A vegetarian who drinks wine of course….

  45. OleyHowlers
    1:11 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Someone sitting next to Mom at her favorite restaurant let her taste her steak tartare. She says it was melt-in-your-mouth delish.
    She just returned from her massage, and is in an excellent mood.

  46. OleyHowlers
    1:19 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Siber and Rose, Mom thinks all of us Sibes are good comforters, but she says the very best one is Dima. Here we go again…Dima is “special”.

  47. Macy the min-pin
    2:03 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Darn Kats

  48. BearSpiritDog
    2:14 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Macy: Heh, heh. Funny photo.

  49. BearSpiritDog

    “Mom always loved you best…..”

  50. Melanie
    2:20 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Zoe is awake! Less morphine. Using an IV tylenol drug for bone pain. That is helping. Yesterday she was convinced that she was in a NJ v e t clinic. She was concerned that they wouldn’t understand about two footed pain. She is releived to know she is in this hospital. Well, here she comes back from another MRI. I’ll be back after I get home.

  51. Masquers
    2:36 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Melanie: Sounds like some Newf dreams got mixed in there somewhere. Anxious to hear Zoe’s update.

  52. OleyHowlers
    3:03 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Thank Dog Zöe is not in a v-e-t hospital. Nothing good comes from those places.

  53. Rose
    3:08 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Melanie, please keep us posted on Zoe.

    B: Look to the right…I guess Siber-H finally had the steak tartare.

  54. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:14 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Newfs!…Speaking of Newfs, I wonder how they are handling Zoe being away…snort!… Do you think they are taking advantage of Melanie because she is alone with them?…heh!

  55. BearSpiritDog
    3:28 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Wose! You are Right! Siber-H took care of the problem. B will “be” so happy.

    Rio: I think the River Bear Pack is taking turns visiting their Beloved Zoe at the hospital

  56. Barb & Maggie
    3:31 pm on December 18th, 2012

    It changed an hour ago. Someone must have been reading our blog today. We will miss our delish red cookie with the chocolate sprinkles on top!

    It is so dark here that it is almost like night. Gotta go…Barb needs to pick up Miss Lyla at school.

  57. Princess Sam
    3:37 pm on December 18th, 2012

    My girl is home! This time she’s not going back, ever. It’s time she came to her senses.

  58. Masquers
    3:39 pm on December 18th, 2012

    (whispering) do you mean she’s “graduating”?

  59. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:44 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Maskers!…Probably Christmas break…heh!heh!

  60. B. Stover
    3:48 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Oh, the relief! Thank you Rose…and Siber H….and Spence.

  61. B. Stover
    3:50 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Sam: I’m glad your girl is back. However….

  62. Siber-H
    4:18 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Sam has these flights of fantasy from time to time…just like I do. They make life more interesting.

  63. Wose
    4:19 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Sammie, I am so happy for you that your girl is home. Sometimes, good things come to an end…..

  64. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:26 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Sammie!…Your hair is sure short…grunt!…What the hell?

    Wookie!…Check your SDD when you get a free momento…snort!

  65. BearSpiritDog
    4:31 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Sammie: Shorter Do, but looking Good none the less.

  66. Jim Soden
    4:43 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Really does help. Thanks for reminding us Chet.

    …and why does my Grandad’s computer always put me sideways.

    Love,
    Igby and Cate (Igby’s big sister)

    Cate is a cutie, even sideways!

    Sammie: You are always the beautiful starlet in our eyes.

    B&M: Yeep! Is that snow coming your way on Thursday?

    Speaking of which…sure hope Bella was able to make it out of the little village this morning.

  72. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:32 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Shorn!…Sammie, I just hope that audition to play Princess doesn’t come up anytime soon…snort!

  73. Masquers
    5:33 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Staff: Kool!

  74. Melanie
    5:45 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Speaking for myself? I would rather have a less interesting life.

    I am listening to TURTLEMAN. “He’s everywhere, he’s everywhere!” (Taken from Chickenman”

    Cool.

    Turns out Zoë fell 15 feet onto the cement floor, dragged herself to the steps, up the stairs and opened the door while bleeding and in pain.

    Jeeze Louise. Tired. Need to eat.

    Oh wait, she said something about a redhead who kept coming in and out of focus, and very carefully giving her licks.

  75. Melanie
    5:46 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Oh, and Cate is a cutie.

  76. Princess Sam
    5:46 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Rio, Siber-H already figured that out for me. When audition time comes I’ll get hair extensions.

  77. Staff
    5:51 pm on December 18th, 2012

    I also had that teacher when I was in high school. He was great. I was in the first class that girls were ‘allowed’ to take printing. There were three of us. (1965/6) We seniors had to take it with the 9th grade boys. We whipped their tiny little butts! Heh. And then in a fit of madness I fell ‘in love’ with the senior adviser for the class. He was the only one my age. sniff. That didn’t last. snicker.

  78. Staff
    5:52 pm on December 18th, 2012

    OMD! Zoe! Dawson and I are amazed she is doing so well. goodness.

    I have to admit I kept thinking the steak tartar was some sort of red muffin with choc. chips. Ugly though. I am glad it is gone also.

  79. Siber-H
    5:53 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Hi Jim and Cate!

    Oh Dawg, Fifteen feet is difficult to even think about.
    Melanie? After you get some rest, let us know how you think Zoe is doing now.

    I am going to listen to Turtleman now.

  80. BearSpiritDog
    5:58 pm on December 18th, 2012

    15 feet…cement floor…And yet, Zoe Will Be Okay.
    To us it is nothing less than A Christmas Miracle.

  81. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:58 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Staff!….How come the article doesn’t mention his love of turtles too?…heh!heh!

  82. BearSpiritDog
    6:07 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Staff: An amazing story. We would love to see one of the printed Christmas Cards.

  83. Masquers
    6:09 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Kat! Your kisses helped! Told you so.

  84. Barb & Maggie
    6:23 pm on December 18th, 2012

    So he likes old printing presses and Staff likes old sewing machines? Interesting. What old things does Dawson like? And how about Catty Librarian?

    Remarkable story about Zoe! 15 feet and still able to crawl. Amazing woman. So what in the hell was she doing up there? Do you keep Christmas deco up there? Or hide gifts maybe?

  85. Staff
    6:41 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Rio, Turtleman told him about his turtles but said it was “a story for another time”. snicker.

  86. Wose
    6:41 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Oh my God! Fifteen feet onto cement, and still our dear Zoe managed to get herself to the steps! What a remarkable woman, but then of course, she is the Raven’s woman! God bless you, Zoe.

  87. Wose
    6:43 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Sammie, I actually like your short ‘do a lot!

  88. Melanie

    I don’t know if this is going to work, but it is very funny.

  89. Melanie
    6:43 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Nope, it didn’t. Snigglefritz.

  90. Tupper and Gilly
    6:44 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Hey everyone. Finally home from errands and catching up.

    Bee – we don’t think you are going to like being a vegetarian if you don’t like raw food. Nothing worse than an over cooked salad.

    Sammie – we hope your girl is home til your hair grows out.

    Rio – Mama understands. Around here, it is usually Grp throwing the monkey wrench in.
    Last week, during their 3 days home, there was a looooonnnngggg discussion about dinners for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. It was decided by all three that Christmas Eve would be Finnan Haddie, and Christmas Day would be Lobster Newburgh. All decided. All approved. All done.
    Then this morning as Mama was in her way out to do her errands in the very short time she has at home, Gramp started waffling. Did we really want fish two days in a row? Oh, it was fine with him, but were we sure it was ok?
    And was it too much work? And was it too expensive?

    Mama left before she ended up on Sant’s naughty list

  91. Wose
    6:44 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Hi there, Cate. You’re adorable!

  92. bluecat
    6:46 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Hi Jim and Cate, love your smile. :-)

    Dog, Melanie. Zoe’s adventure sounds like something out of a Stephen King novel.

    I thought the same thing, Maggie – Staff’s family’s respect for old machines surely is genetic. Nice.

    Little Sam – you are soooo cute, no matter how long your hair is. Mom has cute little dog envy.

  93. Masquers

    Have you noticed? Now they are naming winter storms.

    Staff: Way cool story about the Turtleman! So youse guys are collectors?

    Kat, your kisses are very soothing, that is why you are the smoochiest of Smoochers!

  95. Wose
    6:53 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Masquers, I worry about the Smoochers traveling in such weather.

    Speaking of travelers, Rebecca, I hope you are safe in your travels, and your tummy is feeling better.

  96. Barb & Maggie
    7:06 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Yes, we are expecting a storm on Thursday, but we are actually looking forward to it. We need moisture badly and snow would be nice. And now that we are not in the middle of nowhere, we can handle it.

  97. OleyHowlers
    7:07 pm on December 18th, 2012

    We just finished watching Hope Springs. B&M, did you watch that? We here really liked it, but then again, it is Meryl Streep after all. What’s not to love?

    Mom is beaming with pride over her baby Kat’s care-taking/kissing/smooching. She can ail whatever ails you. But 15 feet? Cement? Oh me oh my, poor Zoe.

    Hi Jim, Igby, and pretty Cate! Welcome to the blog.

  98. Kat
    7:11 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Cate, what is the water you’re boating on? I’ve been on the Chesapeake, and I’m a very good sailor too.

    Oh! Got to get back to Zoë’s room now.

  99. OleyHowlers
    7:23 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Masquers, you asked about our “storm” which did not end up being a big deal, because it went further inland than models were showing early last week. The EPAWA guys kept saying that it was iffy between rain and snow, and we got rain darn it. But they never did call it a storm of the century. They called it a possible KU storm, which is short for Kocin-Uccellini. Those are the 2 guys who compiled a book detailing the history of winter storms on the east coast, so when they call something a “K-U Storm”, it means one for the history books.

  100. Cate
    7:29 pm on December 18th, 2012

    That would be the South River in Annapolis. Igby the dog likes to go swimming there–when no one is looking.

    7:30 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Storm!…The big one is coming in tonight….grunt!…No one here is looking forward to it at all…wuffle!…Especially my friend. She has to drive in the damned stuff…grump!

  102. Princess Sam
    7:51 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Cate, do you have a picture of your sister Igby? And welcome to the blog.

  103. Masquers
    8:00 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Cate: Can you post a photo of Igby here on the blog? We would love to see one of the two of you together.

  104. Masquers
    8:08 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Riö: Tell your friend to stay home tomorrow. Temperatures are plunging into the teens. Winter storm Draco is on the way! WeatherKat over & out.

  105. Masquers
    8:17 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Rose: No worries about the S-Team blurring into New York tonight. At least two of us will be there! See you and the Prof in a bit.

  106. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:17 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Sniff!…You guys coddle these one-time posters like they are old friends…grunt!…Give me a break. Just like that Steve guy, he was here long enough to get one of my friend’s projects and then he disappears withought saying whether he received it or not. Or even if he liked it at all…gruffle!..One time posters are for the birds….grump!….Quit coddling them.

    So, staff, am I reading this correctly, that Turtleman’s story was on All Things Considered?

    There was much debate today whether or not planes would be flying out of the village. I had a secured a place to sleep for the night just in case, but it was not needed. As the plane I was catching was landing I was told by the coordinator at the village terminial to staying in the building until the plane opened the door and they lowered the steps. At that point I was told to run to the plane and get on as fast as possible. I did and they brought the steps up and closed the door right behind me. Whew!

    I am hungry which I guess is a good sign that I can stomach the thought of food. Last night each time I thought about food, my stomach flipped and flopped. (Insert Rio’s talk of moose here).

    Welcome, Cate!

    Dawson said the Raven’s Woman is a tough bird, and taking flight from a 15 foot perch is proof positive.

    Rebecca!…Did you catch a moving plane?…wheeze!…You are giving me several heart attacks on this trip you know…grunt!

    MacyMinPin: I heard my brother on All Things Considered twice today. He is famous! He recently sold one of those restored printing presses to someone down in Georgia. He has a customer up in the Yukon who wanted it but was too late.

    Hi Cate! Never mind the pug. Where’s Igby?

  113. Staff

    Macy, he was on Minnesota Public Radio but I don’t think it was specifically All Things Considered. I am not sure. He was on a show called…

    “MINNESOTA SOUNDS AND VOICES
    This ongoing series produced by MPR News’ Dan Olson serves to capture memorable sounds, voices and images that reflect the culture of Minnesota.”

    That quote was from the MPR website.

    Rio: The plane, to door opened, the stairs came down, I went up, then the stais were brought in and the door closed. The planes was on the ground for probably less than two minutes.

    Famous!…One day NPR will be interviewing Staff about all her old sewing machines…chorkel!….Then Dawson will be surrounded by fame…sniff!

    Whew, I have just finished putting together the new desk chair. Would have been done 30 minutes ago, but I put the handles on backwards. (Don’t ask.)

    I will have to tell Zoe about the 15 foot flight from her perch. snicker

    I’m going to bed now. Tomorrow I’m going to see Zoe again but a shorter period of time. The dogs will be on their own tomorrow.

    Cate, that is exactly where I embarked from on my very first boat trip. I went to St. Michaels, then from there, I took a much smaller boat to tour the harbor. Yessir I am an od salt. Heh heh.

    Gah! Old salt! Not od salt.

  123. SnowBella

    Cookies! Did someone say cookies?

    Dawson and Staff are only one degree of separation from fame. Wow!

  124. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:52 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Pissed!…I’m pissed off….grunt!…Now the cookies have been put away and we are watching Downton Abby…grunt!…I want to watch something with gunfire and explosives…sneeze!

    Snowbella, It is the Turtleman who is one degree of separation from fame.

    heh heh heh.

    Rio, I’ve seen the videos of you begging. Awesome! And it’s not working tonight?

  127. Siber-H
    8:55 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Masquers, Do you mean the storm that is suppose to hit Rio has a name and that name is Draco? This sounds like something out of a gothic horror novel.

    We are only suppose to get the southern tail of the storm…cold temps and wind…bring it on.

  128. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:56 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Sammie!…No!

    Rebecca!…Do you like molasses cookies or some call them ginger snap cookies?…wheeze!…These are the most coveted cookies around here…..grump!…No one wants to share.

  129. Masquers
    9:09 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Siber: The link I posted earlier shows the path of Draco. (yes, it is bizarre to be naming winter storms, especially a name with such connotations.)
    Bella: Are you home now?

  130. Kat
    9:11 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Rio, we have tins and tins of cookies here. Some are cute-loooking sugar cookies (angels, Santa, snowman, sleigh, star, yayda yada) and then we have the REAL THING: Chocolate Chip Cookies.
    Now, my mom wants to know how you are getting to watch Downton Abby. She says we here have to wait until January for that great show.
    Meantime: the rents are having Stone Smoked Porter tonight. They love love love it!

    Hey!…Charlie Brown’s Christmas is on and we only missed the first 10 minutes…wheeze!…I’m feeling better already…grunt!

  132. Masquers
    9:13 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Howlers: “one for the history books” somehow translated to “storm of the century” in our mind.

    9:13 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Kat!….Downton Abby the is being shown ON DEMAND…heh!…Good thing for us because we missed all the War episodes last year…sniff!

    Draco is Latin for large serpent.

  137. Kat

    Now Bee’s avatar is not showing. (Whispering) do youse think maybe she did not apostrophe?

  138. Siber-H
    9:19 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Thanks Masquers

    Some of our avatars are GONE!

  139. Barb & Maggie

  140. Princess Sam
    9:25 pm on December 18th, 2012

    I also have a lot of avatars gone. I’m on an ipad. Is that the problem?

  141. Masquers
    9:37 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Sammie: No, it’s not the iPaws. Many of the avatars are missing! What’s going on? Yeep!

  142. Princess Sam
    9:42 pm on December 18th, 2012

  145. Masquers

    Goodnight all.

    Smoochers: We blur at daybreak.

    My mama just landed. Now, she just needs to drive 75 miles to get home!

  149. Princess Sam
    10:19 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Masquers, come get me. I’ll wear my ski jacket.

  150. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:19 pm on December 18th, 2012

    Avatars!…Yes, they are all showing now. Just a short-time glitch in Baker Media Software….snort!

    Wrapping!…Well, my friend just finished wrapping a few gifts for our lovely neighbor…sniff!…She is a very nice southern lady who is always kind to me and Beau. Her only bad quality is that she thinks Beau is “just the cutest thing” because whenever she visits he sits in front of her and cocks his head back and forth – like he is trying to understand every word she is saying in that southern accent….grunt!…He is such a suck-up.

    Got home from work to find my furnace making a terrible racket–the pump is going out. Furnace guy prefers waiting until tomorrow to fix and I prefer not paying for an emergency call out. So praying for furnace to last through the night. If it doesn’t, it will take a while before the house is cold but I don’t want my water pipes to freeze -37 tonight.

  158. Luna

    CHH: do you at least have a space heater or a wood stove to keep you warm?

  159. c.hobbit
    2:24 am on December 19th, 2012

    I have a space heater and will plug it in to keep the water pump in the garage warm if I need to. Afterall, I have blankets and 2 dogs to keep me warm. 10 hours until the furnace office opens. Furnace still working at the moment.

  160. Wose
    6:32 am on December 19th, 2012

    Good Morning!

    The Smoochers and I will be leaving in about 1/2 an hour for lightning bolt time. I am very glad that they all arrived safely considering all this talk of nasty weather. Kat immediately calmed me down with kisses, and I received a wonderful massage from Masquers.

    Siber-H and Rio! Thanks for thinking of me. I love youse guys!

    Kat’s mom: I love that picture of sailor Kat!
