Friend of the Month Reminder

“Oh em gee,” Spence says.

“Huh?” says Admin.

“Last day of the month! Almost forgot!”

“You mean it’s already time for the July Friend of the Month reminder?  Check the right of the screen. See Beppe? He’s Chet’s June Friend of the Month. And just below him, by the way, are two friends who rotate through every time the screen is refreshed. But that’s a side issue. And speaking of sides, I’m really looking forward to your grilled corn on the cob tonight.”

“But the point is Beppe’s human companion sent in a photo to the Friends of Chet gallery. The random number generator – “

“East German Army surplus, circa 1956 – “

” – does the rest. Winner stays over there for the month and the winner’s human companion gets a signed and paw-printed – “

“And gilded – “

” – copy of the latest Chet and Bernie novel, in this case A Fistful of Collars.”

“This could be you! Just send in a photo!”

*All 100% true, except for the gilded part.

    Guess I had better get WonderFluffed in preparation for my big day.

    Grilled corn on the cob sounds good!

    Good morning all.

    Gooood morning, everyone! Phewww! Hasn’t been that busy here with the mother dog, heck no. Been to the IPaw store 3 times in 2 days or would have said’ “Hey” more. After third visit, they replaced the NEW IPaw, so have paws crossed this one is ok. The Daddy Dawg will go back to the Volunteer State on Tuesday.

    Hope everyone has either a sunny or a scintillating Sunday (depends on what you need).

    Grilled Corn on the Cob . . . The Pack is drooling.

    Good morning to Princess Sam, B.Stover, Herd of Hounds, and everyone!

    Herd of Hounds, Mother Dogs are very busy, and tired, and sleepy, and hungry, and loving.

    Humidity and Allergies Abound! (and it’s only 10:43 am)

    Greetings!

    Ah, grilled corn on th cob.Yum!

    Sammy, your picture is up top. Maybe in preparation for the random number generator.

    OTAS, The most of the best on your birthday!,

    Tomorrow, Grizz and I are going to see the 3D version of a Hitchcock classic “Dial M for Murder” on the big screen. Can’t wait. Last night we had a WItte Home Theatre” run of the original ” That Taking of Pelham 1 2 3″. Fun film.

    Corn on the cob??? Save some for us!

    We were hoping for the gilded copy, even if it isn’t 100% gilded,

    (whispering) we know they love us…may take mom till Tues, but we have the boarder, the boys AND sitters watching us do silly things.

    Dawson: I forgot to put a description of your prize in my note. If there is any confusion let me know.

    Happy Egg Day! Those chickies are now living fulltime out in OUR yard! We are continuing our plan though…remaining calm and cool and acting like we don’t notice them. Kat went up to check them out, so we had to pull her aside to remind her that patience will pay off. Oh No! Mom is walking this way, and we can’t let her read this!

  10. Wookie's Dad
    11:03 am on June 30th, 2013

    One legal question of a due process nature. Since Beppe’s photo was hijacked for a few days, is he entitled to any extra time into early July to make up for this grievous miscarriage of justice? Inquiring legal minds want to know.

  11. Herd of Hounds
    11:09 am on June 30th, 2013

    Whoo hoo, boarder left laptop pos unattended, so…
    GO SNOWHOOK!
    Congrats, Dawson.
    What egg day? We get scratched and played with, but no egg day when mom is gone :(
    Neew to go, boarder returning.

  12. Tupper and Gilly
    11:13 am on June 30th, 2013

    Wookie’s Dad – the answer to your legal question is conditional. If WE are chosen as FOM, as we SHOULD be then; no- Beppe is SOL. If however the Wrotten Kats are chosen, then Beppe should get an extra two or three weeks into July.
    If anyone else is chosen, we don’t care.

    And thanks to today’s post, Mama is realizing that she only has three weeks to get ready for FOUR back to back shows, including the week long one. AWWWWWWKKKKKK!!!

  13. FinnDogsMom
    11:23 am on June 30th, 2013

    Happy Day everyone!

    I should probably put a picture of Abi in for a Friend of Chet, but I’ll do it after the FOM is chosen. Good luck to everyone!

  14. B. Stover
    11:23 am on June 30th, 2013

    Wookie’s Dad: However, if Beppe is given time into July, then July’s pick would have to be given time into August and that pick into September…. Seems like a problem of entropy.

  15. O'Howlers
    11:29 am on June 30th, 2013

    Finn’s Mom: You should submit it now, because it always seems like recent entries win.
    Wookie’s Dad: If Beppe gets more time, can we sue on behalf of Buddy whose FOM time was cut short? We seem to remember Bear’s was cut short as well. Legal counseling is needed.
    Bee, we don’t know that word.
    Happy Birthday to OTAS!
    Go Snowhook!

  16. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    11:36 am on June 30th, 2013

    Good morning, everyone. We need to keep our fingers crossed that Snowhook will win the next drawing. It seems to me that a lucky musher will get his entry fee returned? Is that right?

    Go Snowhook!

  17. FinnDogsMom
    11:58 am on June 30th, 2013

    O’Howlers: I’ll wait, not a big deal. I want to give everyone a fair shake, especially those who have been here longer, to get FOM. Besides, we’re not having the best of days. I am preparing for my senior dog to cross the bridge. He’s with my parents as he hates cats and I have two, but my parents love him to bits and I see him often when they come to visit and I send the cats to board for a few days.

    He’s had reoccurring ear infections for the last year and this one is very, very bad and meds aren’t stopping it. The vet and my parents are making him comfortable, but unless the new antibiotics fix it, we’ll have to make that decision.

    “Entropy” is used in different fields. In thermodynamics it is the measure of the energy that a system loses or can’t use. In information theory it is “the measure of uncertainty in a random variable.” My definition would be that entropy is the measurement of the instability of the haphazard. In other words, we would have DISORDER in our system and that is banned.

    52 Mushers have already signed up for the Iditarod. They are expecting a total of between 65 snd 70 teams to enter the race. I found AJ’s name on the list.

    Wolfie, They have always had that drawing in the past. I am sure they will have it again this year. We will keep all paws crossed for Snowhook.

    Wookie’s Dad can be the Legal Council for Bebbe, who was robbed of some days.
    O’Howlers: It is true. Both Buddy and me lost some time as King of the Hill.

    FinnDog: Paws crossed the antibiotics will work this time for Senior Dog. In the meantime he is receiving an Abundance of Love and that’s not bad.

    Awww, B, you know all the really Cool Words.

    Happy Birthday OTAS! Melanie let us know what gifts you sent him.

    Tupper&Gilly: The Royal Mum has a Busy Schedule. Thank Dog she can do what she needs to do before the Really Big Shews.

    Siber-H & Wolfie: We remember this drawing also. May Snowhook be the Winner this year!

    Wose, Sammie and Hounds: Good Day to y’all and Everyone else too.

    Despite the nocturnal antics of the guys in this here house, we were all up to greet the dawning of a fabulous day.
    The sky is clear blue and the day promises to be a good one.

    We are late arriving on the blog today. We agree with Wookie’s Dad that Beppe did indeed get short changed. Maybe since July is a long month, he could stay till the 2nd or 3rd. I am sure the new FOM wouldn’t mind.

    Finn, sorry to hear about your old friend’s problem. Hope he is peaceful and pain free. These times are never easy.

    Lovely day here, lots of sunshine and mild temps. Barb cut the grass in the back and now we will sit out on the patio for a bit.

    A chipmunk (13 stripped ground squirrel), with a death wish, has made a burrow within leaping distance from said patio. Yesterday I stuck my nose down in it as far as it would go, then I decided to dig the little sucker out of there. Barb said I could not do that. She is a Debbie Downer!

    Thank you for the correction Bear. (Now I’m pondering communication entropy.)

    Riö: You wanted to know who is watching our house while we are watching the houses of others. Our neighbor dog across the way is keeping an eye out for Marauding Goats and the Lawn Guys come weekly to water the plants and cut the grass.
    Trying to jam with Fergie, Koha and Sam, but so far haven’t got past the howling/yowling. We are working on it.

    2:39 pm on June 30th, 2013

    B — Any system that is predicated on the inherent reliability of an East German Army Surplus Random Number Generator is already synonymous with DISORDER, with instability of the haphazard out the ying-yang (as Chet would say). Just saying. . .

  35. O'Howlers
    2:52 pm on June 30th, 2013

    We are having very scary weather here. Thunder was loud a while ago. The town next to us is flooded!!! Meashka is doing her best to protect Mom, while Dima is keeping Pop safe.

  36. B. Stover
    2:54 pm on June 30th, 2013

    Wookie’s Dad: LOL. (I think that I may suggest that acronyms are an example of communication entropy.) However, we all know that the choice is not made randomly. Just saying….

    I hate to disappoint, but they did the drawing for the entrance fee yesterday. We did not win, but it was nice to be able to have the entrance fee paid with earnings from the MMSB, individual sponsorships, the tips that AJ saved from his job and the savings I started stashing the moment we returned home from Nome. Thank youse all for making this possible.

    Finn: Please see your mom and the old dog to the quilt. There they will find comfort and most likely snacks.

    Rio: Did you get the hot wings I left for you?

    I am packing today for my travel north to the tip-top of Alaska. Wheeze.

  38. Tupper and Gilly
    2:56 pm on June 30th, 2013

    Between Wookie’s Dad and Bee, we have a surplus of $10 words. Maybe we could sell some of them at the next auction.

    We are pleased to say that OTAS is a member of our family. Back when Mama first met Melanie and the Pack, the Storyteller and YSAS made a real connection – they kind of adopted each other. OTAS and Mama both being artists created a bond there. So both boys have not only the best mother in the world and a wonderful grandmother, they have “spiritual parents” to give them a hard time(and love) too.
    Happy Birthday Dear OTAS – have we mentioned lately how proud of you we are?

  39. SnowBella
    3:03 pm on June 30th, 2013

    OTAS! I wished the wrong son a happy birthday last night. Happy birthday to OTAS!

  40. SnowBella
    3:07 pm on June 30th, 2013

    T&G: These $10 words are too rich for my budget. I could have swung it, but last night sprung for an order of hot wings for Rio and Beau.

    Rebecca!…After all that negotiating last night, I did NOT get any hot wings…grump!….Beau got up early and wiped them out…sniff!…He is out back pooping red hot stuff right now….gruffle!snort!

  45. Melanie
    3:23 pm on June 30th, 2013

    I will let OTAS know of your good wishes. I texted him last night. It was about the same time – 30 odd (in more ways than one) years ago – that my brother convinced my x and me that I was having false labor. Why might you ask since I was two days from my due date? Because my brother had never heard of BACK labor. Jeeze Louise.

    OTAS thought that was funny. Just wait until OTAS and GLAD have children. Heh, heh, heh

    B.Stover, I wish your interpretation of entropy didn’t resemble my life. Snort!

  46. SnowBella
    3:25 pm on June 30th, 2013

    Rio: I feared this might happen which is why I had a contigency plan. Go check by the chili peppers outside. There you should find an order of hot wings with both ranch and blue cheese dressing. There should also be an six pack of Alaska Amber for you.

  47. Tupper and Gilly
    3:37 pm on June 30th, 2013

    We keep hearing about all kinds of “summer” beers. There is a Red Apple Ale, and a Summer Shandy that is a lemonade beer. We don’t have a chance to try some, as neither Mama or the Storyteller ever touches the stuff. But we are intrigued. Has anyone tried them?

  48. BearSpiritDog
    3:41 pm on June 30th, 2013

    O’Howlers: Yeep! Take care of your Mom and Pop. Where is Kat? When Thunder Rumbles we all gather close and wait out the storm. The Circle of Protection always keeps everyone safe.
    The only sounds we hear around here of late are those of Fire Crackers. These folks just Can’t Wait to Celebrate.

    SnowBella: How long will you be gone? Will you be Communicado?

    Rio: Will you be sharing your Hot Wings and Alaskan Amber? I could use a cold brew about now.

    Tupper&Gilly: The Red Apple Ale has an advertisement similar to V-8…a guy saying: Hey, I could have had one of those!

    4:22 pm on June 30th, 2013

    Bella – have a good trip, and despite what Siber suggested, we don’t think it’s a good idea to dip your tootsies in the water up there – you could get a bad case of popsicle toes.

    Sigh – it’s raining here again. There was a knock on the backdoor a little while ago. The resident garter snake that Gilly tries to herd? He was at the door asking if we had some snake-sized water wings he could borrow.

    Barb is not a big beer drinker, but she has tried Blue Moon with a big slice of orange in it and that is excellent. Also SIL loves Summer Shandys and drinks them all summer long. There is another one that is popular called Shock Top that Barb tried and liked.

    Barb finished Blessing already, after checking it out Thurs after noon. It was excellent, and had every kind of critter that Barb had at the farm, except chickens. She even gave a very accurate description of a little miniature donkey giving birth. Author is definitely a horse person. We are going to check on more of Kittle’s books.

    I’m not a beer drinker either, but I figured a certain pug wouldn’t turn up his snorter at some beer.

    Back from the day’s activities here in Michiana. All went well, no one made a complete fool of themselves, good turn-out, impressive service.

    The Oxford English Dictionary defines the basic meaning of the term paradigm as “a typical example or pattern of something; a pattern or model”….snort!

  77. Tupper and Gilly
    8:00 pm on June 30th, 2013

    HOH – as we understand it, paradigm is the perfect example of something, or the standard by which all others are judged.

    We are the paradigm of Royal Corgis.
    Basil and Sage are the paradigm of Wrotten Kats.
    Rio is the paradigm of Hot-Wing Eating, Snorting, Burping, Baseball-Loving, Curly Tailed, Beau Bothering Pug.

  78. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:03 pm on June 30th, 2013

    Tupper!…I just told Sharon all that but in a more succinct way as only a hot-wing eating, snorting, burping, farting, baseball-loving, curly-tailed, non-sharing, Beau bothering pug can do…heh!

    8:10 pm on June 30th, 2013

    We have the most incredible sky here right now. There are thunderclouds in the twilight, moving across the sky like a slow moving herd of cows, grazing their way out to pasture. But off in the distance is one billowing cloud bank, picked out by the last of the sun’s rays, turning it a soft glowing apricot color against the purpley grey of the horizon.

  82. Melanie
    8:11 pm on June 30th, 2013

    I think I like a pair of dimes better.

    Riö, just discovered your SDD. Will get on it tomorrow.

    OTAS and GLAD just Facetimed me. Wonderful to see them, AND I’ll be seeing them in person towards the end of July. Woo Hoo!

    Any woof, he liked his presents. One was a dish from a Zimbabwe artist Golinka and Storyteller know. This guy also does the Cultural Survival shows. The gift was a stained soapstone dish. A picture is etched out of the stain. OTAS loved it. He especially loved it when I explained that one of the rhinos was scratching his rear on the tree. snicker . . Do I know my son or what?

    The other present was a Golinka Pot! Done in earth tones and leather. Both OTAS and GLAD loved that!

    Before I head upstairs . .

    One of the storms that came through today thundered in the correct spot for echoing through the hills. When I realized that it was echoing, I started counting. FIFTEEN seconds, and that wasn’t including when I didn’t count!

    All the storms seem to be over here, although they are calling for more in the wee hours. We don’t believe them, so we helped put horses out for the night.
    The storm we had was not so bad, although the thunder got loud, and it blew the rain against the house so heavy that we couldn’t see anything out those windows. The funny part was that it hardly rained in the back of the house. Friends of ours, who live closeby, had their whole driveway washed out. Talk about hit or miss!

    Bear, Kat does not worry about storms, nor does she feel the need to protect our people. She slept right through it.

    Game!…As far as I can tell, and I am a mere pug, this Whodunnit Game is split into two groups of people…grunt!…There is the group who actually thinks and puts two and two together to figure out the clues, and then there is the group who expects the people in the first group to tell them what happened…heh!heh!…So the real mystery is how the dumb ones will be kilt off during the show…snort!
