Dogs, Drinks, Dining

“It looks like Chicago’s about to make it easier to take your dog to certain kinds of restaurants,” Spence says.

“Don’t see why not,” Admin says. “You see it in other countries.”

“Stovernia?”

“Hard to say. Stovernia’s a dictatorship.”

“Kind of like Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago?”

    Dogs are allowed anywhere in Stovernia.

    Good morning all.

    I’ve always thought Gerard Butler would make an excellent Bernie. He can put on a very convincing American accent. Isn’t Jeff Daniels too old?

    I’ve seen Norton Graham advertised on BBC America but I’ve never watched the program.

    (Whispering): Spence, it’s “kinds” not “kids” in the first sentence.

    Except that Stovernia is a benevolent dictatorship. Rahm’s Chicago…not so much.
    Hoorah for Stovernia!

    Dawson — You took the words right out of my mouth; sort of a risky thing to do when dealing with a golden retriever, but you did it nicely nonetheless. Wookie

    Melanie, how is YSAS doing? That was one funny story.

    Where is Macy?

    9:26 am on May 4th, 2012

    Aw shucks Wookie: You made my day.

    I have to get out in the yard before it gets too hot or the thunderstorms hit, or both.

    Thinking of Rose…

    Speaking of Thunderstorms, it looks like one is heading in on the farm. Mr.Staff has put the ancient van in the quonset. We don’t want it to get anymore hail on it.
    So far it is just rain.

    A Catty Librarian and Elliot will be visiting overnight on Sunday and we must get the spare bedroom spiffed up. Elliot will stay in there or Alice will have a gigantic tantrum.

    On Sunday, which Mom said is soon, I’m going to my girl’s college. We’re bringing back lots of her stuff and I get to go into her room again and sniff everything.

  10. Barb & Maggie
    10:19 am on May 4th, 2012

    Have fun Sam. I bet she will be coming home soon, right?

    We here in northwest Illinois think Rahm is doing OK. At least he is not another Daley! What did we have, about 50 years of those guys? I know he had a long reign, but personally we don’t think the 2nd Mayor Daley would have been in office if it weren’t for his daddy. The man could barely put a sentence together!

    Dogs would be allowed anywhere in Stovernia. As it should be!

    They keep harping about thunderstorms here, but so far they have been missing us totally.

    Greetings everyone.
    Melanie asked us to update you all. The nursing home had Dan taken to the hospital last night. He has developed some kind of as yet undiagnosed malady of the stomach, but it has created some internal bleeding.
    The doctors have said it may be an illness that can be treated. They will be doing tests and scopes and trying to figure it out. Melanie and Zoe are at the hospital now, and we will update you whenever we have more information.

    Meanwhile, we are also keeping Rose in our thoughts.

    We are so grateful to have this wonderful support system.

    The usual rainy morning here, but Weatherkat is forecasting a sunny weekend and warmer temps.
    Not a minute too soon! Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo and the Big Howl Fest.
    B: Good notice on Spence’s flub up top. We have gotten so accustomed to the iPaw typos that I read right over it.
    Rio: All is well…the Chase website was in working order last night.
    Wolfie: Is your mom packed and ready to go? Sounds like a fun trip!

    Tupper&Gilly: Just read your update on Dan. Prayers and Good Thoughts going out to our Dear Friends.

  13. Barb & Maggie
    10:54 am on May 4th, 2012

    Kids, dogs, very close.

    We will be hoping for the best outcome for Dan. Hope it gets resolved soon, before the countdown to the wedding.

  14. Siber-H
    11:06 am on May 4th, 2012

    We’d vote for Stover anyday over Rahm.

    Barb, kids, dogs, close…no

    Wolfie, Thank dog, Macy said one word to us last night. I was getting worried about her, but I am not exactly reassured by that one word.

    Hope all goes well with Dan today. The family is in our prayers
    You too, Rose

    Hello all. We were busy all last evening, so only just got caught up now. Best wishes are with Rose and Dan. The reason we were busy is that we were providing assistance to the v-e-t who was here again for Shiek. He seemed to be colicing (mild). Mom reluctantly went to work today and horror of horrors! Pop locked us up indoors so we can’t even watch over Shiek for Mom. Said something about severe thunder storms, but we don’t hear any thunder. We think Pop is losing it. And Mom took Kat with her…she says Kat will spend the day at Kamp. Why does she get to have all the fun?
    Before Mom even knew that Shiek is sick, she was grumpy yesterday because she learned that her office is being relocated to a terrible place with a worse commute. We are wondering if there is enough room under the quilt for Mom and Shiek?

  16. Siber-H
    11:40 am on May 4th, 2012

    There is always room under the quilt. The quilt has many magical features and unlimited room is just one of them.

  17. Barb & Maggie
    11:43 am on May 4th, 2012

    Good thing that is a big quilt, now we have Rose, Dan and Shiek, plus Oley’s mom. Anyone else? Macy maybe?

  18. BearSpiritDog
    11:45 am on May 4th, 2012

    O.Howlers: Always enough room under the Quilt! It is all encompassing. Come on under Shiek, and Mom: Too bad you can’t work from home to avoid that long drive to the busy place.
    Prayers from all for Dan to have the best of care and to be out of the hospital very soon.
    Rest assured everyone – Rose is being waited on hand and paw by the Prof and the Smoochers.

    Here’s my update on my facebookie password getting hacked by someone in India: have no concern as long as you don’t have personal information there that you don’t want these guys to have.

    I don’t have any personal information there other than my city, in case some old, handsome and rich male friend is looking for me. I had to change my password on another account that used my email address and that same password. I know, lazy on my part, but now it’s fixed.

    There are a lot of sites on the Internet that sell software to hack into facebookie and get passwords. That seems to be an industry all in itself. People put lots of personal info out there, particularly birth dates. The hackers can get in and out in one try like they did with my account and then FB notified me but if I had data it would have been too late.

  20. Barb & Maggie
    12:07 pm on May 4th, 2012

    I mentioned the other day that someone tried to charge hotel expenses in Mexico on a MC card. Son Josh said he just had the same problem, only location was Georgia. What is going on? Lots of hacking. Hard to keep up with the crooks.

  21. BearSpiritDog
    12:17 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Thank Dog the credit card companies call us when something seems off!
    Barb&Magpie: Was the credit card Favorite Son was using issued by the same company?

  22. Barb & Maggie
    12:24 pm on May 4th, 2012

    BSD, I don’t know but can find out. Our MC was issued by Sears, but can be used anywhere. Does it make a difference who issued it?

  23. Siber-H
    12:31 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Barb, I don’t think it makes a difference who issued it because a bank will be behind a credit card like Sears or Amazon. I have a Defenders of Wildlife card but a major bank is really in control of it.

    Bee- what is the Statius of Kats in Stovernia?

    It could all be in our imagination, but didn’t Macy say recently that her family was going somewhere for a few days?

    Melanie called – Dan has colitis and will be in the hospital for a couple of days until they can get the bleeding stopped. Then he will go back to the nursing home. Melanie and Zoe are on their way home. We are sure she will fill you in more later.

    All our best to Sheik. We love horses, especially magnificent, elegant ones like him

  25. Basil and Sage
    12:41 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Hiss, spit…..dam ipaw.

    Status … Not Statius

  26. Rose
    12:52 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Good Afternoon All!

    I am back home after the lightning bolts. The Prof and the Smoochers are here with me snuggling under my Wizard of Oz quilt. I am receiving soothing paw message from my good friend Masquers, gentle mothering from Luna, and Belle Starr has her favorite place on my lap.

    My prayers to Dan for a speedy recovery. Melanie and Zoe, my thoughts are with you.

    Sammie, I am so happy that you will get to see your girl this weekend!

    I am missing Macy…

    Rebecca, please check your SDD. The possibility is getting a little stronger…

    B, did you have Swedish Fish for breakfast? :)

    OH: Sorry to hear about Shiek. Prayers that he is back to good health soon.

    Again, thank youse guys for all your support!

  27. B.Stover
    12:54 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Basil and Sage: All cats are welcome in Stovernia and are also allowed anywhere.

  28. B.Stover
    12:56 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Rose: Glad everything went well. I’m having Swedish Fish for lunch.

  29. BearSpiritDog
    1:00 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Barb: Probably makes no difference who issued the card…just wondering if it was the same bank.

    HerbKats: Error? What error. It always reads correctly to us.

    Just received an email from B&N: “Spoil Mom With Surprises…Riveting New Reads She’ll Love” Gasp! WWBS say?

    We just received an emailed invitation to BlogPaws in SLC. Wonder if we could practice our new blurring skills (thanks Wolfie!) and attend! We’ll show him some unruly followers. Wail til he gets a load of Katzilla!

  36. Melanie
    1:39 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Love Chet’s Avatar!

    Rose, feel better soon. Sam, I’m glad your girl will be coming home soon. Mechanical Engineer Nephew feels the same way about his girl. She’s coming home soon too.

    Later I will remember to put a website up that you can see about internet crimes.

    I have always thought of our quilt as being like the tent in HP4 that the Weasleys and Harry take to the World Quiddish Cup. Looks small but when you are under it there is room and more for all.

    Dan is doing as well as can be expected. The nurses have fallen in love with him. Even though he is bleeding his vital signs are all normal. No fever!

    Need to rest.

  37. Rose
    1:52 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Love the avatar, Chet!

    B, I hope there will be Swedish Fish in Stovernia. Enjoy your lunch! :)

    Masquers, thank you and the rest of the Smoochers for the post…I love it!

  38. Barb & Maggie
    2:07 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Melanie, Glad to hear that it is something correctable with Dan.

    Rose, rest and relax under the quilt.

    Sunny and hot here, still wondering where the thunder storms are that they keep talking about. They had our whole state in red – high risk – on the morning news. We are not wishing for it, just wondering.

  39. BearSpiritDog
    2:07 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Rose: I am sensing a tend here. Swedish Fish to be the official snack in Slovernia?
    What say you, Empress B?

    Melanie & Zoe: Get some rest!

  40. Rose
    2:30 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Bear, I am laughing here at your Swedish Fish comment. :)

  41. B.Stover
    2:40 pm on May 4th, 2012

    The official snack of Stovernia is chocolate! Swedish Fish is the official appetizer.

    We had thunderstorms here last night and it’s been hot, muggy and overcast most of the day. Everything is damp.

    Melanie: Love the HP4 comparison. (I always love that tent.)

    2:45 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Labor!….My friend has been breaking rocks in the hot sun…snort!…Or is that called gardening? Anyways, she’s been doing all the hard labor of unloading stuff from the trunk and digging out dirt and placing heavy stones in a walkway, filling a raised bed with top soil and crap. Sheep and peat crap to be exact…grunt!…Smells amazing. Beau and I have been helping in many ways, by being right there under-foot at all times…chuffle!..Early this morning those two had to leave and go get all the heavy gardening stuff. Then they had to go get some more. Later they have to get even more..sniff!…But for now everyone is inside cooling off and contemplating lunch…gurgle!

  43. Barb & Maggie
    2:52 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Let’s see some pictures, Rio!

    We don’t have sheep crap, just chicken crap and goat crap, but I think it works pretty much the same. I much prefer old crap (compost) to Roundup. We love the feel and texture of good compost, but then we are easily entertained.

  44. Riö –The Evil Pug
    2:53 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Years!…Well,well,well…sniff!…Chet finally got his Avatar…heh!…That only took a couple of years, not bad!…chorkel!

  45. Riö –The Evil Pug
    2:54 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Dan!…The Man!…snort!…That guy just can’t catch a break, can he…sniffle!…I hope they are taking good care of him. Get well Dan…wuffle!

  46. Riö –The Evil Pug
    2:57 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Lunch!…Woooooo!Wheeeee!…snort!

  47. Melanie
    3:07 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Riö, it sounds like you’ve been very busy. I wish the Newf Pack was as helpful with the gardening.

    So my brother works for something in the gov’ment and one of his dudes sent around the following. I think that it is useful for all.

    I’ve included an important link for any of you who have been, or think you might have been the victim of an online crime.
    You can report the incident to the Internet Crime Complaint Center at this link –

    http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx

    I hope you never have to use it.

    Be safe out there!

    3:10 pm on May 4th, 2012

    We had said Jeff Daniels would make a good Bernie, and someone said he would be too old. I guess he is older than he looks – 57, as compared to Gerald Butler at 45. He played the father in Winn Dixie about 5 years ago, and he looked like he was in his 40’s.

  50. BearSpiritDog
    3:44 pm on May 4th, 2012

    B: Chocolate a Good Choice…except I can’t have any. Same with the little fishes. Grump.

    Arrrgggghhhh! Mama has been on the phone arguing with people. Her health care insurance company switched her to another provider with a lower premium. Only problem – the other provider doesn’t have any doctors in this area. The closest network doctor is 98 miles away.
    The original provider admits it was a mistake – they mixed up someone else’s request with Mama’s – there is only ONE group provider in our rural area, so we never made a request to transfer. So she is being transfered back in to her original provider BUT NOT UNTIL JUNE 1!!! The provider swears they can only make changes on the first of every month – they switched her off on May 1st, and the only way she knew that was when she went ot get a script refil yesterday and they wanted to charge her almost $100 for it when it should be free. So until June she is just SOL on seeing her doctors or getting her prescriptions. We repeat – ARRRRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!!

    Sorry – we just had to vent……………

  52. Barb & Maggie
    3:54 pm on May 4th, 2012

    T & G, It could be normal that switches are done the 1st of the month. However, this was a mistake, and not something you requested, so it should be retroactive back to May 1s, with no break in coverage.

  53. Riö –The Evil Pug
    4:19 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Dawg-Daze!…Lunch flew by fast and then those two were out the door again…sniff!… Beau and I took the opportunity to watch our favorite soap while they were gone…heh!….Then they came back with more dirt and crap…sniff!sniff!….After my friend unloaded everything again, she said that was it for the day. Beau and I were especially helpful until he got his toe stepped on and left the party mad…heh!heh!…Maybe tonight when it is cooler she will finish spreading the crap and dirt out there…wheeze!…Maybe not.

    Projects!…Now! We are finally downstairs and she is going to start working on some special projects for the Spring Boutique…snort!

    Just finished New Tricks by Rosenfelt, so now will be dropping it off at the library and ordering the next one. This one was very good too. Love the Andy character, since he is a total dog person. He is a Petter for sure. Waggy, the Bernese Mountain dog puppy character is a hoot.

    Chocolate! I want to go to Stovernia too. I just hope the Professor doesn’t bring in the Electoral College.

  61. B.Stover
    5:41 pm on May 4th, 2012

    I’m cracking up! Since Stovernia is a dictatorship, there is no Electoral College.

    6:57 pm on May 4th, 2012

    I know! I know! I know! I am betting that Riö’s friend is making “Riö’s and Beau’s Sweet Compost”. It will be in bags with quilling on them!

    Barb and MagPie, Dan is being great, but he does not like being in the hospital. He is looking forward to going to the rehab place tomorrow.

    We just finished “Men in Black”. Riö’s first acting role . . . (swoon)

  70. BearSpiritDog
    7:20 pm on May 4th, 2012

    Will Dan be returning to his Executive Suite?

    Hmmm, I think I sort of know that because someone close to me was an extra ..

    YSAS has landed in NJ! He says “Have no fear! The Best Man is here!”

    Snort!

    Well, he was moved from the Executive Suite and feels he has a better view at the Rehab.

  73. Barb & Maggie
    7:41 pm on May 4th, 2012

    We will be ordering Dog Tags next from the library. Does it bother anyone else when there are mistakes in books or is it just us? In this one, New Tricks, which was very goood by the way, Andy goes to a dog show and is shown around by a handler. She says these are all working dogs. Then they go over to her booth, where she has an Australian Shepherd that she is preparing to show. Now we all know an Aussie is in the Herding Group not the Working Group. I know, it isn’t a biggie, but still!

    Barb: Wrong things in books bugs Mom lots! She just finished reading a book about a scrapbooking group that solves a murder. One of the things — and there were many — that bothered Mom about the book was this: The day of the “suicide,” which was later found to be murder, the group found the victims’s scrapbooking stuff on the curb waiting for trash pickup. So they decided to take the stuff and finish the scrapbooks for the victim’s four children. The police found out they had it and wanted to check everything. One of the scrapbookers asked if they could have everything back after the police were finished with it so they could complete the scrapbooks. So the police made copies of everything — including letters from one of the victim’s lovers and a photo showing the victim and another lover in a compromising position — and then they gave the originals back to the scrapbookers. Say what? What police detective in his right mind would give evidence away?! It was the first book of a series — needless to say, Mom won’t be reading the rest!!!

    OK, I’m in moderation. I’ll try again — I hope I’ve figured out the bad word!

    I’m being moderated for my last comment — and a second try at it! So here’s another version. We’ll see if it works.

    Barb: Mom hates it when there are obvious errors in books. The one she just finished has a scrapbooking group finding a victim’s scrapbooking stuff being trashed, so they decide to finish her books for her children. When the police find out they have her letters and photos, the women give everything to the police, but ask to get it back so they can finish the scrapbooks. So the police make copies of the evidence and then give the originals back to the scrapbookers. Huh?! It’s the first book in a series, but Mom will absolutely not be reading any others!!!

    Howlers: tell your mom and Sheik to check out the blanket fort (aka the executive suite) under the quilt. It really is something.

    I received a compliment today. A gentleman external to my organization that I work closely with on a project called. He said that my name came up as a possibility for a director level position in a very large company that we also work with on the same project. He said he would talk with me about it, but already knew my response. He told them I am very loyal to my current employer an they would be hard pressed to offer the intrinsic elements I have now. He nailed my response. I told him I was flattered that my name even came up. As Coach would say: it is always nice to be invited to the party even if you don’t want to dance.

    That’s right Rio. You were the one who had to lick the World Series trophy last fall, I seem to recall.
    Rio’s suggestion to contact Rosenfelt is a good one. He does respond to emails (my dad had sent him one once and his response was very gracious).
    By the way, Swedish Fish have been a big favorite at Casa Wookie for a long time. Dad often gives mom a big bag of them on special occasions like Valentine’s Day, their Anniversary and her Birthday.

    Heading off to bed shortly. Tomorrow morning we are going to make a rhubarb pie, with rhubarb from the garden. Then Barb is taking off for Lake Geneva. Birthdays for Ben 6, and Jackson age 3. Adults will eat some pie, but there will be cake for the wee ones.

    Barb is leaving me home, and Jordan, the v e t tech and my buddy, is coming for a sleep over. We will have fun. She has been reading C & B and loves them.

    G&B: I almost snorted the chocolate shake I bought as a reward for doing well in a big meeting today through my nose. Had! Ha! Belle Starr is certain to think that the picture was also meant for her. If she’s having trouble wrapping her brain around her friend, Kat-dog Masquers, I don’t want to try an explain that she is more like 1/10 siber and 9/10 not siber.

    Kirby: Somehow I missed your clever Happy Star Wars Day comment. Good one! (better late than never, right?)

    Barb, have a great weekend. Maggie will take good care of things at home.
    Rhubarb pie is a big favorite that has not been on the menu for a while now…have to do something about that…and soon.

    We are winding down here too. Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo brunch with the DIL.

    Barb and Maggie – have a good time at the birthday party. Did a certain package arrive in time?

    Bella – good on ya – that is a nice compliment.

    Belle Starr’s identity crisis reminded us of one of our favorite jokes –

    The little polar bear asked his mother “Am I a for real, honest to goodness Polar Bear?”
    “Of course you are dear”, his mother said. “See your beautiful white fur?”
    “Are YOU a for real, honest to goodness Polar Bear, Mama?”
    “Of course dear – see my white fur and big giant paws?”
    “Is Daddy a for real, honest to goodness Polar Bear?”
    “Of course dear – why are you asking?”
    “Cuz I’m freezing my a s s off!”

    Rio. I am getting too sleepy to explain the joke…maybe T&G will.
    Yes, the Rockies have better fan support than some of the other teams. They said Sunday’s game may be a sell out.
    I was watching some of the fans and a few of them seem to be eating through the entire ballgame.

    Ugh!…Game is tied, 7 ta 7 and someone here, not me! is so tired she can hardly keep her eyes open…sniff!…So we should probably say Goodnight!…whuffle!

    Renters!…She has to go over there tomorrow morning, Early!, to turn on, program, and adjust the sprinkler system…sniff!…That ole system is on its last legs, but she refuses to see the truth…grunt!
