    Good morning, everyone! Fun video,but what about the dogs that seem to just bite at water? Hey, one movie we didn’t see mentioned that w think is fun is Polar Express. Mom is getting ready to lope to the library for toddler Tuesday.
    HHave a tumultuous Tuesday.

    Good morning all. Checking in before heading off to the office.

    The study is interesting, but sometimes we wonder who pays for these things and what is the purpose. We know dogs lap up their water, some daintily, and some with exuberance. Picture LouLou or Macy or Darah or Mac. See where I’m going with this?

    8-G water power? Being a 1-G type kat, I was impressed too.
    Good morning to HOH, B, BML and everyone.

    Morning all.
    Ivey, sleety and icky here. We have told Mama that we don’t care about water studies – we are NOT going out in it.

    B&M&L, we really liked your drining comparisons. We do NOT think Darah has learned to lap (8g’s not withstanding). She just bites and schlurps and get everything soaking wet within a 15 foot radius. :)

    Goats!…Over to the right! I will have to watch that video!…wheeze!

    Classic!…Here is a list of lesser known Christmas movies – someone will have to check Netflix and see if they are available anymore…chuffle!…I sure hope so!

    Good morning, all. Water? Zeus slaps his tongue in and then purs it on the floor. Heh!
    Mom got her permanent crown in this morning, she is one happy girl.
    Also, her ribs are finally all healed up from that fall she did ages ago.
    Speaking of happy, ahem! She is wearing her size 6 jeans today!!!!

    I drink very, very, carefully. A drop of water is never splashed out of the dish or, heaven forbid, on me.

    I agree with Barb. What’s up with these studies, anyway.

    Me too, I am worried about Rose.

    O’Howler’s Mom: Size 6! There is nothing left of you!

    I am leaving for the first leg of my flight home today. I won’t see Nana this time because I got a flight all the way to Bellingham for cheaper than it usually costs me to fly to Seattle.

    Hoping all the Plunderers are well in body and spirit.

    Regarding Christmas movies: I don’t know if Holiday Inn has been mentioned. It included the song “White Christmas” sung by Bing Crosby.

    Safe trip, Dawson!
    Holiday Inn is another favorite here.

    Rio – we love Fitzwilly. We love almost all the old Dick Ban Dyke movies.

    Howlers mom – congratulations. And Mana says she is no longer speaking to your skinny little self. 😉

    We are gonna check out AMC and TCM for holiday classics.

    Otter cork changed “van” to “ban”? Really?

  27. Masquers
    3:25 pm on December 9th, 2014

    Just heard from our friend…no worries…she’s taking a short break and will be back soon. ^..^

    T&G: That stupid otter cork is incorrigible!

  28. BearSpiritDog
    3:29 pm on December 9th, 2014

    B: The oldie but goodies are the Best! We like Holiday Inn too.

  29. Masquers
    3:45 pm on December 9th, 2014

    Outwitting the otter cork is very challenging and tricky…sometimes you have to “meld” two words together and then quickly go back and separate them while the automan’s attention is on something else.

    Howlers, your mom went from 8 to 6. My mom went from 8 to 10!!!

    Mom still wants to lose 8 more pounds. And hopefully, it will be in her waist and belly.
    BooBear, (whispering) Mom went from 14 to 6 !
    T&G, Our mom says your mom is kidding. She hopes. (gulp)

    OH’s mom, What are you foing to do for winter insulation?

  34. Tupper and Gilly
    4:46 pm on December 9th, 2014

    Howlers – our Mama says she could take your old size and add your new little itty bitty size, and still not be able to fit. Grump.
    But never fear – she still loves her.
    And youse guys too

  35. BARB, MAGGIE AND LUCY
    5:02 pm on December 9th, 2014

    Howlers, we are very impressed with your mom’s new dress size. We know it came with a lot of hard work and sacrifice (are we allowed to say pumpkin ale?)

    Closing up at the office and heading home. BBL

    Christmas with the Kranks – movie with Tim Allen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Dan Aykroyd, Cheech Marin, Tom Poston in a cameo.
    It’s tradition here.

    Howlers Mom – good for you!

    A peaceful evening to all.

    Size!…Beau and I have a size of our own, it’s called Barrel Chested…snort!…Makes it hard for anyone to comfortably hold on to us while standing up…chorkel!

    Well, home from the office, doggies let out and now fed. It’s off to a short (thankfully) music program for Lyla’s 3rd grade. Then back to the office tomorrow morning to fill in due to illness. No rest for the wicked, as they say.

  39. O'Howlers
    6:30 pm on December 9th, 2014

    Barb, speaking of pumpkin, Mom is making butternut squash soup for the first time. There was a lot of swearing going on while she was trying to cut up that squash.
    Bluecat, we never saw Christmas with the Kranks, but it sounds like our kind of movie. We’ll look for it. Thanks!

  40. Tupper's Mama
    7:23 pm on December 9th, 2014

    Howlers – tell your mom that if she has a apple hanging around, she should throw it in to the soup to simmer with the squash – really adds a mellow tone.

  41. O'Howlers
    7:30 pm on December 9th, 2014

    Mom made a super delish soup. She used an Emerill recipe, which includes garlic, onion, carrot, jalapeno pepper. And we topped it with a shrimp salsa. Yumm yumm yumm.

    This was especially good in this awful weather day. We are in the middle of a noreaster, and it has been raining heavy, with winds and a raw cold all day. They expect it to change to ice and snow just in time for the morning commute.

  42. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    7:46 pm on December 9th, 2014

    Howlers, You are becoming quite trendy and upscale with your cooking! This CSA is bring out your creative side!

    We are going old school with meatloaf, noodles and green beans.

  43. Tupper's Mama
    7:49 pm on December 9th, 2014

    We had homemade soup too.
    With fresh bread, cheddar cheese and chocolate bon bons for dessert.
    No size 6’s for me….

    Mom always talls us that she was born a size six, then grew :) (but not up)

    Speaking of Christmas movies – has anyone mentioned the “Home Alone” ones. We still laugh at those.

    I made Turkey ‘soup’ yesterday. The italics are because in order to please Dad it is broth and a tiny little bit of turkey. But that is OK because when we eat it there are lots of veggies added to the broth. Yum Yum

    Dawson left today and it was sad. I went out to play with my vintage sewing machine group for a late lunch and when I came back there was a box on the porch for Dawson. She missed it by a few hours. It is from Lucini Italia and she said I could open it because half of it is for Me me me. I can’t wait.

    I am supposing she is busy with the grandchild tonight and might not blog to us but… DAWSON, it came!

    Movies!…Well our Netflix queue is over-flowing with Christmas movies. Some we see every year and some we have never seen at all….Woooo!….Now if someone could just stop working for the rest of the month it would be grand!…chortel!

    I thought I could go out today and pick up a few things I need as I’m unpacking from my move. I took Loulou to Sammie’s house so they could be together while I went shopping. My first stop was Bed Bath and Beyond and it became my only stop. It was a mob scene and a woman cut me off at the register. I won’t be back until after Christmas.

  50. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:29 pm on December 9th, 2014

    Nightmare!…My friend says shopping on the weekends is even worse…sniff!…She has to get her shopping done this weekend or else…gah!…It’s like she’s not even in the mood to buy for people who always buy her the worst gifts ever…sniff! …She says Beau and I are not getting anything as we have depleted our treatie fund over and over again this year…heh!heh!

    One of our favorite Christmas movies is Christmas in Connecicut, with Barbara Stanwyck. We watch it every year, along with White Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, and of course It’s A Wonderful Life, and Scrooge on Christmas Eve. BTW, the theme for our Christmas Party this year is It’s A Wonderful Life.

    Beau! Wake-Up, It’s Rudolph, You Can’t Miss This One!

    MollyPop’s Mom: Hope at least you were able to pay for your purchases. Crowds give us Claustrophobia big time.

  55. O'Howlers
    9:40 pm on December 9th, 2014

    We are sorry we missed Rudolf. It is a favorite.
    Sounds like a lot of us had soup tonight.
    Off to bed we go. Nighty night.
    By the way, Mom owes a lot of youse guys for the motivation to lose weight, diet, and excercise even in bad weather. What a great family you are.

  56. BearSpiritDog

    I am admiring all the cooks on the blog.

    So…I had agreed to temporarily foster a mama cat with 3 kittens. Imagine my surprise when I got a mama cat with 6 kittens. Big difference and I am a bit unhappy about it. However the nice part is there are 3 calico kittens and I am a sucker for calicos. From experience I know it is going to be hard to keep them in the room when I go in to check on them or feed them. The mama is semi-feral so she will be wanting to escape also. (The small litter ended up with someone else.) I have to be careful in the future about agreeing to things.

  58. Tupper's Mama
    10:03 pm on December 9th, 2014

    We won’t be doing much around here for Christmas. But we did talk to a certain artist who has a beautiful baby boy named River. Said artist has done an incredible painting of Callie for Gramp. Its gonna knock his socks off!

  59. dawson
    10:04 pm on December 9th, 2014

    Carpola!
    I can’t believe the package came just after I left. Not that I could’ve fit it in my luggage without rearranging everything. The airline checkout person was impressed with the weight of my suitcases. Exactly 50 pounds! Well, 50.3 by their scales which were obviously off by .3. They even checked my wheeled carry on bag for free.
    I won’t get to my destination until most of you are fast asleep as it looks like I have enough time to have supper before I catch the little plane to Bellingham. I will be dog tired by then.
    Staff: I miss y’all and love y’all. Give Dad a hug for me.

    10:10 pm on December 9th, 2014

    CHobbit: The cat rescue place seems to be taking advantage of your good nature. I love calicos too. And cats with thumbs. And two little kitties named Henry and Cupcake. And the 3 old cats who think they own my house.

  63. Tupper's Mama
    10:16 pm on December 9th, 2014

    Hobbit – it is beautiful, isn’t it?
    And listen to Dawson – rescue/foster places tend to lean on people they know can’t say no. A friend of ours is now fostering 7 – count em 7- Pyrs and Pyr mixes just because she can’t say no.

  64. dawson
    10:16 pm on December 9th, 2014

    Callie! You great big beautiful love dog! Andrea captured you perfectly.

  65. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    10:45 pm on December 9th, 2014

    Before we say good night, we have to say what a beautiful picture of Callie.

  66. Staff
    10:57 pm on December 9th, 2014

    Callie you are beautiful. Gramps will be flabbergasted! (What a great word)! Andrea has a special talent!

    Henry grew again today. Every morning when we open the door behind which the kittens sleep he seems to be bigger. He bopped Abbie on the nose tonight TWICE. All she was doing was sitting on Mr.Staff’s lap. Poor Abbie. She is bummed out. (Alice is still in the closet.)

    Dad will be hugged by me for you Dawson.

  67. BearSpiritDog
    10:59 pm on December 9th, 2014

    We clicked on the Drawing of Callie and it enlarged nicely! All we can say is WOW! Gramp is going to be Over the Moon about this!

    Dawson: It’s a lovely night for flying.
    Glad to see you are Almost to Your Destination.

    The blog, or my computer, seem to be acting up. I had to post that last post about 6 times before it took.

    IMPORTANT BOOTIE NEWS

    There has been no bootie news for so long that I had to relearn how to figure out the matching funds etc.

    There has been a 25.00 donation to the bootie fund by another wonderful Plunderer. With that donation and the match we moved up to a total of 1095 Bootie bucks! WONDERFUL!

    We are getting very close to the next prize which I bet you don’t remember…heh. This is it, the beautiful Raven keychain.

    AND we still have 25.00 of matching funds to work with. So think about it if you have time between fighting the crowds at your former favoriet stores. That keychain could be a nice gift for someone. Maybe even yourself!

    BOOTIE BOOTIE BOOTIE!

  69. BearSpiritDog
    11:05 pm on December 9th, 2014

    Staff: We must have been sending our posts through Siberspace Simultaneously…that’s why I got that strange message.
    Dawson mentioned Henry and Cupcake…did her name get Changed From Keiko?
