Fifth Mention of the Teitelbaum Divorce

“It didn’t sound kosher from the get-go,” Bernie said, and then he added something I missed, on account of: kosher! That took me back in a flash to the Teitelbaum divorce and the chicken at the celebration dinner, best I’ve ever tasted, although the celebration might have been a little premature, coming just before Mrs. Teitelbaum drove the earthmover into the garage where Mr. Teitelbaum kept his antique car collection. He had a bunch of Porsches, all of them way nicer than ours, and then not.

“ … ulterior motive,” Anya was saying, “none whatsoever. I told you the truth.”

“Some of it, maybe,” Bernie said. “What was Guy’s motive for wanting to get back with you?”

“Is it so hard to imagine he might still be interested?” Anya said.

Bernie got this expression I hadn’t seen on his face since the Leda days.

From The Dog Who Knew Too Much.

    I’d love to know what Bernie’s expression looks like. And who knew there were so many references to that divorce.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning Bee and all. Got a little dusting of snow yesterday, but less than 1/2 inch.

    Going to drag some Christmas stuff to the basement after another cuppa. That is what they say in Kate Morton’s books. “How about a nice hot cuppa?”

    Good Morning B and B&M!

    Just catching up on last night’s blog….

    KIRBY! I thought you were lost to the blog forever! It is good to have you back. Sounds like you had a big adventure . Happy New Year!

    Belle Starr: I think the Smoochers are needed again. You must make sure the Giant and your two-legged are not splorting all over the place. Has then Giant been eating soup lately. How did the Giant learn French!

    Kat, you are a spa girl! It is nice to soak your paws in Epsom salts, and get some pawflexology !

    CHH: I’m the one who really doesn’t want to go to France. There are so many things to see in this wonderful country before I start going overseas. Next year’s anniversary trip could be France. I just couldn’t resist the chance to meet Rebecca, AJ, Belle Starr, Luna, and all the rest of the guys at Snoohook.

    I just talked to Zoë. I have agreed to call her every morning after I have finished poop patrol. She worries that I will fall and “can’t get up!”. Of course, I’ve also promised YSAS that I will always carry the phone with me. He worries that I will fall and “can’t get up!” Hmm. My eye is twitching again.

    Anywoof, reading last night’s blog (HI KIRBY T PENWORTHY!) I noticed a great deal about flu and the Giant.

    Snort. Zoë had a night nurse who decided that EVERYONE on the ward needed a suppository and milk of magnesia. Been a VERY busy morning there!

    What an idiot. So I’ll be back at some point from the land of the distressed (nurses included). Should be an interesting odor. I wonder if I have a gas mask.

    Kosher, whatever it is, sounds delish.

    My Lady fell asleep last night waiting for AJ and the team to return. At about 1230, she woke to Luna giving the top of her head kisses. She had been using Luna as a pillow. I don’t make a bad pillow either, if I do say so myself.

    Good morning and Happy Egg Day, Plunderers and Lurkers!
    Tonight is the return of Downton Abbey. YAY. Unfortunately, it is also Golden Globes, hosted by Tina Fey AND Amy Poehler. Why do all the good shows have to be on at the same time?

  8. OleyHowlers
    10:33 am on January 6th, 2013

    oops. We posted that before we saw Sammie’s. we didn’t mean to rub salt into the wound, Princess.

  9. Barb & Maggie
    10:44 am on January 6th, 2013

    I know Oleys, we are torn too. We love Downton, but we love those two gals, so we may have to watch the Golden Globes instead. Just checked the tv guide and Downton is on from 8:00 to 10:00, but we can’t find the Golden Globes. What channel are they on?

  10. Basil and Sage

    All we want is some catnip and some of that there kosher chicken.

    Teitelbaum divorce =s kosher chicken memories for Chet, who always manages to find the good in everything.

    Went to bed early and woke up late…during which time we missed…Kirby T. Penworthy!!!
    Kirby: So Good to see you back on the blog. Please don’t ever stay away that long again! The Pack just isn’t the same without you.

    Time to say Good Morning before it becomes afternoon.

    11:28 am on January 6th, 2013

    Do you think Spence modeled the Teitelbaums after some real life characters?

    We are sooo confused. NBC is advertising the Goldens as if they are on tonight, but they don’t show up on our Guide. Plus Google search says next Sunday. Does anyone know?

  15. B. Stover
    12:02 pm on January 6th, 2013

    Barb: According to the TV Guide online, the Golden Globe Awards are next Sunday, January 13 beginning at 8PM EST on NBC.

    12:04 pm on January 6th, 2013

    Yes, Bee is right. We just searched Direct TV app, and they are on next Sunday. Sorry it took so long for us to answer; we were having our Sunday banana/walnut pancakes and Caw Caw breakfast sausages.
    Now we need to correct Mom’s FB friend who told us GG is on tonight.

    Plunderers: Charlie is almost but not quite 80% sponsored. What does that mean? His 4 feet will be at the starting line, but his tail must stay back in the kennel? The sponsorship office is open for business, accepting whatever pocket change and treats money youse can afford. Just email our mom and we will record it on Charlie’s tab.

    Hey, y’all! Mom just got back from church so I’m here! Thanks for all the welcome backs — I may have to leave more often! But now I’m on my way to the kitchen. Dad just made some chili — great idea for a cold, gray, dreary day like today. Only problem is that I’m not sure he’ll let me have any. He was complaining about some emmissions I had last night — and you know what they say about beans! But he sprinkles cheese and crackers on top, so maybe if I give him The Look…. I’ll be back later!

    Moi tres. Excellent idea, Riö.

  26. Macy the min-pin
    2:38 pm on January 6th, 2013

    We need a memorial garden. Mollypop, many Snowhook residents, agent Wookie, and more. Maybe a section in Dishlickers with a little “obituary” or “this was your life section”. Just thinking out loud.

    We are overstimulated by the large number of fuzzbutts that have come out on this warm sunny day. It must be grocery day for them, they are really busy and Annie and Biddy are running their legs off chasing them. They work hard, so I don’t have to, heh-heh.

  27. Macy the min-pin
    2:40 pm on January 6th, 2013

    Ah, the most grievous of grammar errors, in my grandma’s opinion. If someone asked where something was at, she would say, “look between the A and the T.

  28. Barb & Maggie
    3:14 pm on January 6th, 2013

    Thanks for clearing up the confusion about the Globes.

    We like the idea of a memory garden for ones no longer here.

  32. Macy the min-pin
    4:00 pm on January 6th, 2013

    Does anyone else have the problem of putting away all the decorations and then finding one little thing that got missed. Never fail. We sat down and there is a candy cane ornament on the fireplace. It will have to bunk with the nativity that is now homeless due to the ants that took over the manger.

  33. dawson
    4:14 pm on January 6th, 2013

    Ants! In the manger! That sounds so un-Christmasy. I’ve never spent a winter where there were ants. Hmmmm.

    Charlie needs his tail. I sure hope the other 20% gets funded.

    KirbyT: I’m happy you are back. I though you got blown away by Hurricane Sandy.

    Hope Melanie and Zoe are doing okay today. Me? I’m for a nap before Downton Abbey starts. Oh yeah! I won one of the card games last night, came home lop-sided with quarters in one pocket! That was fun.

    Oley Howlers: Thanks for mentioning pancakes. I made them for lunch. Delish!

  34. Macy the min-pin

    4:43 pm on January 6th, 2013

    Macy, the same thing happens at our place. This tine it was the Christmas tablecloth still folded in the cupboard for “in case”. Pop spotted it while getti g placemats they use for pizza at the living room table.

  41. OleyHowlers
    4:47 pm on January 6th, 2013

    We’re all in the Sibaru on our way home from a great hike in Nolde Forest. Today has been very mild with no wind. After the hike, we went back to Godfreys for a “Sibe treat jar”. We’ll post a picture after we get home and unwrap it. Mom had them order it after seeing one in the shop with a Spaniel-type.

  42. Melanie
    5:03 pm on January 6th, 2013

    Back again. Dear Occupant, I would like to have no crises in the next few days. No YSAS splorting, no dogs splorting, and (as OTAS put it) no serial “make everyone have the runs” nurse. Thank you, Melanie

    Riö, The gate is a work in progress. Yes, they got the soup on the floor, but it was harder to do . . and more of a mess. They found the one weak spot (our floors in this 200 year old house are not even) and decided to push.

    Need to think. Must have brain to think. I will think tomorrow.

    Zoë is okay except for this idiot nurse. She was able to sit up in a chair for four hours! That’s hard work with 7 broken ribs.

  43. Masquers

    Yeep! Yark! Yowl! I’m quite attached to my tail. I think I will tuck it in so all of me reaches the starting line.

    My Lady wants to tell you all thank you for your generosity and helping us, my four paws included, get to the starting line. She sniffs a lot when she thinks about your support. And, her eyes get leaky. What is that about? My eyes never leak. I drool from time to time, but my eyes never leak.

    5:09 pm on January 6th, 2013

    ummmm – Rio – we don’t like to say too much, but Mama is currently at level 45 in fishdom. We think she is spending WAAAAAYYYY too much time in the water.

  46. Masquers

    Oh, Melanie…soup on the floor (again!) and the night nurse from hell…you could write a book.

    5:19 pm on January 6th, 2013

  48. Melanie
    5:36 pm on January 6th, 2013

    Masquers, I would like to READ a book without falling asleep.

  49. Tupper and Gilly
    5:37 pm on January 6th, 2013

    We are doing the full blown game. And now we are up to level 49.

    Come on, Pugilito – get to serious fishin’ here, or no beer for you!

  50. Masquers

I am on level 7 lickety split!…grunt!…All I want to do is get past that level 8…dammit!

    Rio, I see. It does help to know the rules…

    I didn’t get very good at it till I decided to enable hints. Then I saw I could manipulate the bombs and the lightning. I just love the lightning. I don’t need the hints anymore.

  57. Buddy

    We liked the lightning, but we aren’t sure we understood what to do with the bomb or rocket.

    The series was originally produced by Seth Mac – Farlane
    and was initially aired in January 1999. Should have gone
    with my gut, hope they provide it up easily. Finally, the dhad, dafli, dholki, and damru are instruments that produce more drum beats,
    but with a lot less bass compared to the dhol drum.
