E-Reader How-To

About TAIL OF VENGEANCE, the new e-short story (July 8), Ms. Publicist says: “We’ve had some questions about how non e-readers can read it, too. The answer is: many ways! If you have an iPhone, Android, or any other smartphone — download the Kindle, Kobo, Nook or Apple iBooks apps and you can buy it through the app. You can also download Adobe Digital Editions (for free!), then download the ePub version of the book (why not from S&S?) and read it on your computer. You can even print it from your computer!”

    Good morning.
    BB, so sorry to read about your mare. But we are very happy that you gave her a happy later life.

    Good morning B, Howlers & all.
    Have a good day everyone.

    Hey everyone – happy day to all.

    ML – thank you so much for that posting last night. Mama sat the Storyteller and Gramp down and read it to them. Gramp is really having a bad time with this – he wants to be a good dad to his son, but his son doesn’t want a dad. The circus and the monkeys made Gramp laugh, and it made things a little clearer to him.

    Meanwhile, Mama has been sitting at the ‘puter, cussing out a certain state’s “more user friendly” sales tax certificate application. She is just very glad she doesn’t live in that state. It is a state of confusion.

    Hot and muggy here – thunderstorms a’comin’

    Greetings Everyone

    Macy, The circus and the monkeys are so true. Thank you for posting that.

    Golinka, There is a wildfire in the Chuska Mountains…parts of Naschitti and Sheep Springs have been evacuated. More wind is forecast for today. We have had day after day of wind which is most unusual for this time of year.

    Hello Everyone–I was sorry to hear about the lady horse, but happy that there is good news about her restored state from the other side.
    T and G–Be the good supportive dogs that you are to your Mama and family, you’ve done so well so far.
    I have some library hours (finally!) so am happily about to go to work and hope to catch up later on yesterday’s entries.
    U.S. over Ghana in the World Cup! (Still excited, although also still clueless about the game…)
    In case anyone cares, I read e-stories from my PC with a Kindle app. Free and easy to install.

    T&G: Are youse among those that discover toys that have gone missing during those storms with thunder?
    More storms…prayers for the folks in northeast Nebraska where 2 tornadoes ripped through the tiny town of Pilger late yesterday, leveling homes and businesses.
    The town has been evacuated.
    Mom was very concerned when she first heard the news as she has a dear friend who lives in that part of the state and only about 70 miles from where this occurred.
    Siber: Yikes! Are you anywhere near the fire or affected by the smoke from the fire? Please be safe.
    DianeC: Yes to the U.S win yesterday!
    We here have also downloaded books onto our PC. This was before the Kindle.

    Good something, everyone! Mom just got home from her volunteer hours at the library. Can you say, “Straighten up kid’s books”? We loved the facebookie dog meets wolf…some people have way too mush time on their hands 🙂
    BB: You are in our thoughts more than you know! Thanks for sharing about the mare.
    T&G’s Mama: Our mom expected chemo or radiation last year but, no. Crazy business this “C” shiitake. One day at a time and kick it to the curb.
    We’ll try to get our lazy, good for only dinner mom to get a foto of the ‘mater garden later…and maybe the temperature. (We’re m e l t i n g!)

    Masquers, I am a long ways from the fire and no smoke yet, but smoke could happen.

    Diane, That is one of the joys of soccer…One doesn’t need to really understand the game in order to know what is happening in the game. The same cannot be said about baseball.

    Mom says if “we” get all our work done, we can watch the Russians play later today. Maybe I will see Natasha in the crowd.

    Diane – we are so glad YOU recognize our very valuable contribution to this here household. We are not sure that Mama or anyone else does, judging by the lack of cookies being handed out.
    Can we still come hang out by your pool with you?

    Siber – thanks for the heads up on the Chuska fire – we haven’t had news on or seen a paper for days, so didn’t know about it. But the good thing is that the authorities are evacuating the sheep camps out there in the wilds, and of course the Navajo radio station is broadcasting warnings. That station is heard so many places – even way out on the res where people don’t have electricity, they all have battery operated radios tuned to the Navajo station. You hear it at all the restaurants and stores patronized by the Indians out there too, so hopefully no one will wander into harm’s way while the fire is ranging.

    Mama is off in a corner, repeating “Not my monkeys…”

    Chet’s Facebookie post over on the right is definitely a Nail-Bitter.

    We really hate that C-Word.

    ML: As you can see, your timely advice was not only a big hit here on the blog, but a sanity saver as well.
    Someone here has printed it out and put it near the computer & phone.

    The Chuska Mountain fire has grown to 19 square miles and is threatening the heart of the Navajo Nation’s sheep industry. This is serious. Those people don’t have much of anything. It is not like when wildfires burn expensive summer homes.

    Here is today’s groaner with HRH B, Barb, mom and???
    What did the grape say when it got stepped on?
    Nothing, but it gave out a little whine 🙂

    It’s 92 degrees here and the humidity is 52%. I had to go grocery shopping and now I’m too tired to do anything.

    HOH: That was funny!

    It is hot as he-ll here in New York! I do not like this weather. grrrr

    BB, I am sorry to hear of your loss. Liz-Beth will always be in your heart.

    Macy, I LOVE your post from last night.

    Day “crazy” camp was good.

    6:02 pm on June 17th, 2014

    We three spent the day indoors in the cool. The horses were not so fortunate. It is 88 here, but since our hygrometer is broken, no humidity!
    Zeus has to go leash-walking soon, in this heat. Gah!
    Macy, we believe in the not my monkeys philosophy. We mostly don’t bother with one side of the family for that reason. However, there is a surprise birthday party planned for November for one of them. Already they are bothering us for an RSVP! Mom does not want to go. Pop feels that he should. The wife of this family memeber tried to get Pop fired from his job years ago!!! Mom says she is nothing but trouble and has completely disassociated herself from them.

    We are worrit about that fire in the Navajo Nation’s land. We are also worrit about the people in Pilger, Nebraska. Prayers are being sent up for both, as well as for T&G’s mom and uncle, Staff, ML, BooBear’s family, Wose, and all of our friends.

    I’m with you B. It’s 87° here with 64% humidity. I went shopping too. I am so pooped out.

    6:35 pm on June 17th, 2014

    Hi everyone/ We too love that saying ML.

    Sorry to hear about Liz-Beth, but glad her last days were peaceful.
    Barb had a hot ride home from her office job today. It is around 90 degrees and her air conditioning went out. Have an appointment tomorrow morning, but that was not a help today. May go over to Josh’s for a cook out, but may just stay home and cool off.

    The tornado that went thru Nebraska also touched down in Barb’s old town of Lena, IL. Guess some streets and highways were closed down this morning. Not major damage, but the tornado did touch down a few miles from Lean, and then again in the center of town. We heard that a 100 year old Maple went down in our old yard, but fortunately it fell east and went across the road. If it had fallen to the west, it would have destroyed the house.

    BearSpiritDog: You can’t blame him for succumbing to tummies! I’ve never heard of CBarsotti. I will google him.

    Billy’sBuddy: I’m sorry to hear of your loss but glad that Liz-Beth eventually found a loving home where friends would bring her cookies!

    O’Howlers, unfortunately, sometimes the monkey try to get you to join their circus. If you want to completely confuse them, just reply back “Sorry, not my circus”. Do people really plan that far ahead?

    Y’all feel free to drop by Saturday and pick up some one of a kind treasures at out garage sale. I don’t where mom will put the car after she sells the garage.

    B, I feel great now I was able to open up the sliding glass door and windows and turn off the air conditioning. Thunderstorms are rumbling nearby so there’s a breeze. I had Pinot Noir with dinner so now it’s a glass of vodka. I feel great.

    9:06 pm on June 17th, 2014

    Maskers!…I cannot watch it tonight. Must wait till tomorrow because we just watched the latest “24” and WOW!…snort!…Did not really expect that to happen…snuffle!…Now it is walking time and then eventually we will be back to watch the Rockies vs Those Dorty Dodgers…grunt!… Off to walk walk walk,,,grumble!

    Macy, not only are they planning this way early, but they are hassling us to rsvp, even though the invitation has a date of October something to rsvp.
    We love the pup cartoons.
    We are wrung out. Going to sit and try to chill now. Hasta la siber.

  46. O'Howlers

    A couple of thunder bumpers came by and lowered our temperature now to a delightful 74°. I have doors and windows open and enjoying it very much. And I will leave a window open and no air conditioning overnight. So far I haven’t had to use the air conditioning overnight.

  48. Masquers
    9:29 pm on June 17th, 2014

    Howlers: Like Riö, we will not be watching it tonight..too late and too long..it will be recorded and enjoyed tomorrow.
    B & MPM: You both sound kool & happy. Wonder how HOH is doing in the heat.

  49. Herd of Hounds
    9:41 pm on June 17th, 2014

    Wilting! Nights here don’t “cool” off till 4:30 or 5 AM, just in time for the sun to come up and start again. No such thing as sleeping weather 🙁 Thank Dog for the AC.

  50. Herd of Hounds
    10:05 pm on June 17th, 2014

    And on that warm note, we’re going to air conditioned bed! Nighty night.

  51. BearSpiritDog

    We are watching The Book Thief.

    10:18 pm on June 17th, 2014

    No thunder bumpers here yet, but the pack of coyotes is on the prowl. They often get very vocal when they are hunting and that us what scares poor little Gilly to bits.

    Howlers – just say no! Try to tell your dad that there will be LOTS of wild monkeys there, and there is sure to be lots of drama. He can avoid getting involved AND avoid the guilt by not going, but sending a very nice gift. Even go overboard on the gift, since there won’t be the expense of travel.
    No one at the gathering will be able to backstab in light of a nice gift and a carefully worded, polite negative RSVP.

  53. Barb & Maggie
    10:24 pm on June 17th, 2014

    We did go to Josh’s for a cook out. Besides the marinated pork tenderloin, we had kale, romaine lettuce, onions and snow peas from the garden. It was delish!

    Barb talked to an insurance adjuster from her company, and they had over 100 claims called in from the Lena area before noon, all storm damage!

  54. Barb & Maggie
    10:40 pm on June 17th, 2014

    Bear, We recently watched The Book Thief and really liked it. Just watched Enough Said. Would give it a B- probably. Now have Capote on order. Did you see that one?

  55. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:46 pm on June 17th, 2014

    Game!…wheeze!…We are finally all downstairs where it is cool cooling off and watching the Rockies vs Those Dirty Dodgers…snort!….What a day!

  56. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:12 pm on June 17th, 2014

    Howlers!…I just read about your family dilemma …grunt!…Just say NO. My friend has monkeys in her family, luckily they all live in Iowa…sneeze!…She says NO all the damn time and is much happier about a lot of things…heh!

    the last two nights mom has had Dinner from the Great Beyond. She finally got up the courage to dig through the freezer and found food that Dad had packaged up for the future. It was a little salty what with the tears and all, but very much appreciated.

    After all our torture last week, mom is going to her v-e-t tomorrow to get stuck with needles and all. I wish I could be there when she gets that thing stuck in HER butt.

    hasta la pasta, y’all

    Nighty noodle back at you all. It turns out having a 13 year old visiting is constant attention to her. Will be back if I can otherwise next Tuesday for sure! (I don’t mean it, I will be back)

    O”Howlers Tell them No oh oh oh.

    Thank youse for the good advice. Unfortunately, Pop is adamant about this party. It is a birthday party for his oldest brother (so what), and it is being given, at least partly, by his oldest son who is coming up from Arizona with his wife. The ‘rents really like those guys and Pop doesn’t want to hurt their feelings. This is the dad of the goddaughter who got married in Seattle last year.
    Rule #1: There will be absolutely no alcohol intake by the ‘rents, because Mom sees that as a trap where the horrible one would call the cops and have them stopped. They are trying to think of any other evil things that the horrible one could do to ruin their lives.
