Friend of the Month Reminder

“Last day of the month, meaning last day to become eligible for the Friend of the Month prize,” Spence says. “Which is having your picture over on the right for the whole month, where Eleanor is now. Plus the human companion gets a signed copy of the latest Chet and Bernie mystery – in this case, The Dog Who Knew Too Much.”

“And all you have to do,” Admin says, “is upload a photo in the Friends of Chet gallery. If you’re already there you’re already eligible. The random number generator does the rest.”

“Speaking of the RNG, have you got it up and running?”

“Just about – I’m bidding for a part on eBay.”

Welcome Louis & Benson, Sierra.

    Well, this can’t be right. It’s after 10 and our computer says there are NO responses yet. Must be a glitch.
    We will miss seeing Eleanor’s smiling face up there. Hope the next friend picked is as happy….or has a Regal presence.

    Hi T & G! Just got back from picking up Jesse. RIGHT NOW, on Planet Green they are showing documentary mini series thing on the Iditarod. It’s either 2007 or 2008.

    Good Morning T&G and Melanie:

    Seems like a long time before today’s posting came up.

    I have never seen a happier dog than Eleanor, and I will miss her smiling face!

    Rio: The Rose Bouquet check is in the mail.

    Rebecca: Snail mail coming to you from me.

    Sooooo, Bella, are you going out to eat tonight? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Hi Rose!

    Zoë is doing better today. Going to visit Dan, then come home and collapse.

    Today it’s supposed to be in the 40’s and tomorrow in the 50’s. THIS is NUTS.

    T & G, this is a very special day for your mama! We are thinking of her today especially, and know that she will have mixed feelings about leaving. Hope she and your dad have a wonderful dinner celebration tonight.

    We have really enjoyed looking at Eleanor this month. She has certainly brightened up the gloomy month of January. Maybe Rio will finally make it as Febreuary’s FOM. Or even better, maybe it will be moi!

    10:42 am on January 31st, 2012

    T&G? Did your mom get that tutu that Franklin blurred over?

    Rose wanted her to have it for today.

    I’ve never gone on eBay.

    It’s sunny and going to 52 here today…..strange.

    Good morning all.

    Getting warmer here too. -27 this am and the rest of the week is supposed to be -6 to +12. Of course the weatherman said that last Saturday it was supposed to be -1 and he was 49 degrees off. I think he gives us false hope on purpose. Off to work.

    Staff: I just spent 11:58 seconds putting Abbie together. Whew …

    I taught Geometry. I understand square feet. But once I’ve put the sides together, I just KNOW that there are extra pieces in there!

    Turned out there wasn’t.

    B.Stover: I have bought from ebay. Interesting. Most of the things I have gotten have been unusual and charming. I have had only one time where I got into a dispute with someone. It was taken care of!

  10. Siber-H
    11:09 am on January 31st, 2012

    Eleanor is adorable. I will miss her.

    ha ha Me being allowed to go to eBay, no way

  11. B.Stover
    11:15 am on January 31st, 2012

    How do you get on eBay? (I’m being lazy since I haven’t even tried to figure it out.)

    SH cannot go on eBay!

  12. Rose
    11:15 am on January 31st, 2012

    T&G: I hope the Royal Family has a special celebration dinner this evening. Will the wearing of tiaras be involved?

  13. Masquers
    11:17 am on January 31st, 2012

    I will be sorry to bid Eleanor adieu.
    She helped to keep our spirits up
    the whole month through.

  14. Tupper and Gilly
    11:46 am on January 31st, 2012

    Melanie and Rose. Mama would be willing to wear vitual tiaras and tutus, but the restaurant we are going to is run by a first generation Japanese family who probably already find Americans to be a bit odd.
    So, since we do not wish to be mistaken for the CL we may go with a little more conservative wardrobe for the evening.
    It will be enough that she will be twirling all the way across the parking lot.

    O Howlers – That 12-week Will Clowder program your folks are on is excellent. A couple of years ago I read Michael Pollan’s book, In Defense of Food. He was talking about Real Food also. I liked his terminology about the ‘manufactured food-like substances’ that fill most of our super markets.

  16. OleyHowlers
    11:51 am on January 31st, 2012

    Good Morning, All
    We are torn on FOM this time around. On the one hand, we absolutely cannot imagine a more happy-go-lucky, cheerful member of the Nation than Eleanor and we will miss her terribly.
    On the other hand, we want the opportunity for one of the Howlers to win!!!

    It is supposed to go up to 60 degrees today. That is hard to believe for the last day of January.

    T&G, we are so excited for your mama today! We can’t wait to read her update.

  17. OleyHowlers
    11:55 am on January 31st, 2012

    MollysMom, we are loving everything about Will Clower and this book so far. We start the 12-week program next Tuesday, but we have already begun incorporating his ideas. They have upended all of the diet facts that we knew in the past. Real Food…what a great concept.

  18. Masquers
    12:05 pm on January 31st, 2012

    Strange weather indeed. Mom’s friend in Nebraska said it was 70 degrees yesterday!!! Seventy in January…unheard of for the Midwest.
    T&G: We are looking forward to hearing about the Big Night Out. Mama and Papa not only celebrating her Freedom from CLL, but the postponed birthday dinner too.
    Sage the Mage was relaxing at the top…a good omen for her.

  19. Rose
    12:09 pm on January 31st, 2012

    T&G: Please take pictures of the eventful occasion!

    I will certainly miss Eleanor! Perhaps the random number generator will select a kat this time.
    (Whispering) I nominate you, Masquers, for the first kat FOM.

  20. Buddy
    12:15 pm on January 31st, 2012

    Sorry Rose (and Masquers), but the first cat FOM was moi!!!!

    I wonder if there will be one last story from CCL.

  22. Snowhook Bella
    12:44 pm on January 31st, 2012

    Melanie: Yes, yes we will. It is part of the race rules that mushers have to go to the banquet unless they are formally excused. We were nervous becuase AJ didn’t think he’d be available this evening because of work, but he found out yesterday that his work meeting schedule had been shortened. Whew!

    Stinky Mama: Congrats on your last day! Enjoy your celebration tonight.

  23. Belle Starr
    1:11 pm on January 31st, 2012

    I was finally able to catch up on the blog. Howlers and Siber-H, I can teach you how to run in a dog sled team. Did my two-legged mama tell you that I’m an expert sled dog? She probably didn’t. She forgets how wonderful I am all the time. I have to remind her over and over again that Belle Starr, that’s me, is wonderful.

  24. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:23 pm on January 31st, 2012

    Team!….What’s this?…grunt!…. I just read that Alice and AbbieTheKat have a Team and they are raising a ton of money for Snowhook Booties….snort!….Alice and AbbieTheKat, what you don’t know is I have a Team too and we are going to gather our pennies together and, and, and… well I’ll let you know later what we are going to do! ….grunt!… Team Feed The Giant, please check your SDD’s immediately…,wheeze!

    Still, Masquers will be q wonderful successor!

    Belle: I KNOW how wonderful you are!!!!

  28. Rose
    2:21 pm on January 31st, 2012

    Wow! Now we have three great teams to root for:
    Team Snowhook
    Team Booties
    Team Feed the Giant.

    Who needs the Super Bowl with GREAT teams like this?

    And the best part is that we can all go along for the ride of our lives!
    We are really proud of each and every one of youse guys.

    Interview!…Have you guys listened to the Interview with AJ yet? There is a link on the Snowhook Blog…snort!….He has such a nice voice…snorkel!…I would even obey some of his commands, maybe…heh!

  36. Siber-H
    2:51 pm on January 31st, 2012

    Fellow Sibers, I think Belle will want to ride in the sled with all her girly stuff. We might want to think about asking Whitey-Lance to join our team.

  37. BearSpiritDog
    2:58 pm on January 31st, 2012

    Any kat or dawg wanting to join Team Bootie please notify Alice.

    Bear!…Don’t you have to go Eat something or Watch some TV somewhere and then go to bed?…snort! … Did Alice use her hypnotic eyes to force you and Maskers on her team?…sniff!

  39. BearSpiritDog
    3:17 pm on January 31st, 2012

    Alice does have some unusual methods of “friendly persuasion”

    Food! As a matter of fact, now that you mention it, I see that it is lunch-time…..BBL

  40. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:20 pm on January 31st, 2012

    4:15 pm on January 31st, 2012

    This was one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen on the TODAY Show.

  44. Belle Starr's Two-legged Mama
    4:25 pm on January 31st, 2012

    Did Belle Starr happen to mention that she’s only run with the team twice in her life and one of those times was by accident? I think she will best serve your team as sled ornament.

    I can’t believe what the two teams have done in two short days! In those two short days, four checkpoints have been sponsored: Rainy Pass by Siber H, White Mountain by B, McGrath by the Howlers and the starting line by CHarris.

    Rio: I’ve already been contacted by Natasha the Nefarious. She is sponsoring the kennel in her own way with rubies or was it rubles?—I forget.

  45. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:50 pm on January 31st, 2012

    Update!… I have an important update!…snort!…Team Feed The Giant has now committed to $860.00!…wheeze!…We are ahead of Alice and The Shake Her Bootie Team!…WaaaaaYooooo!

  46. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:18 pm on January 31st, 2012

  47. Barb & Maggie
    5:30 pm on January 31st, 2012

    T & G, Your mama is probably at the end of the final day. We are so happy for her!

    At the Japanese restaurant where they are going, do they cook at table side? Barb loves those and so do the Grands. It is really fun to watch them cook and some of the chefs are extremely talented and entertaining.

    Today has been a big day for fund raising!

    The Royal Mum has less than ONE HOUR to go!!!!

    I’m going to look out to the East to see the fireworks. I believe that Rose stuck some fireworks in that tiara so Golinka would leave with lights flaring.

    Hmmmm, think I might blur Franklin and Mac down with some fire extinguishers.

  61. Melanie
    8:28 pm on January 31st, 2012

    Good luck to all and to all good luck.

    I have to get up early tomorrow to have my blood taken. (Routine)
    Then I’m meeting the Royal Mum and Dad for breakfast!
    THEN The Royal Mum and I are going shopping for wedding clothes in her closet!

    Cool. She called me today and asked what colors I couldn’t wear. Hmmm, my feeling is that would be light clothes because it doesn’t show dog hair or drool. So I said I didn’t know. That if I do rarely look at something on the web Zoë will say, “You can’t wear that color.” So I don’t get that one.

    So turns out I’m a winter. Blues, greens and gem colors. Who knew?

    Off to bed!


  62. Melanie
    8:29 pm on January 31st, 2012

    Good Dog, I even edited that one. “… because it SHOWS dog hair …”

    Hey, y’all! Mom just got home from handbell practice and we’ve just caught up on the blog. Right now she’s busy doing the accounting on my treat budget to see if we can up our contribution!

    About ebay — Mom has a really good ebay story. Dad is a Civil War buff, so one day a few years ago Mom was looking for Civil War stuff from Iowa, cuz some of Dad’s great-greats fought in the war. Mom found a letter being sold and was reading it. When she got to the bottom she did a double-take — it was signed by Dad’s great-great-grandfather! So Mom bid on it (without telling Dad!) and spent some anxious days waiting for the auction to be over. She won! So she put it in Dad’s Easter basket. He read it, and when he got to the bottom he said, “Does this say what I think it says?!” That’s still the best present Mom ever got Dad!

    Rio- proud to be members of the Feed the Giant Team.
    We are cooking up sumpthin special just to keep him upright during the race.

    Thanks for the tiara and the fireworks. Good thing that plane was in the area with the fire suppresant. Mama was jumping up and down so high the trees overhead started smoking.

    She twirled and danced her way out of CLL after officially handing her keys to the CL – in front of witnesses!

    Celebration breakfast tomorrow with The Leader of the Pack! Vroom vroom!

    Kirby, That is a wonderful ebay story. It was just meant to be that you have that letter. What are the chances!

    Hope we hear from T & G with an updated report on the final minutes at CLL.

    Rio’s friend: The recording you request of AJ giving commands in hopes that Rio will obey something, sometime is on its way. 🙂

    T&G: Congratulations to your mom!!! I hope she has lots of fun (and makes lots of money) playing with her clay. Mom really likes her job so she doesn’t plan to quit clay anytime soon, but she does like to think about what she wants to do after she retires — although playing with clay isn’t real high on her list! There’s lots of stuff she’d like to do, but my thought is that she’s going to end up sitting around a lot with her nose in a book! In any case, she’s NOT going to be one of those people who just can’t bring themselves to retire so they’re still at work when they’re 105! Much as she admires those people, she says she needs to rest!!!

    If anyone else wants to join the team will are still accepting donations. I am sure Rebecca will be able to find something that needs spending on or for.

    Sorry I was at the busy place today and couldn’t help the team out, but it looks like Bear and Dawson and Wolfie were working well for the team.

    Hey Golinka, happy Freedom Day.

    Dear Team Shake your Booties

    We have met our goal of 1000 booties at 1$ each. If you will each send your donation to Rebecca (see her snail addy here…)
    that will be wonderful. Notate that it is a Team Bootie donation if you will. You are the best team ever. Who would have thunk it?

    Thanks a thousand!
    Alice M. Johnson, AbbietheKitty and Staff

    For all those who sponsored check points,
    And all those who made their teams a success,
    This is how the Plunderers roll
    Together, as one.

    Good night my friends

    We are enclosing a check with our photo but would rather not disclose the paltry amount. We would like to be on a team though.

    Good on ya, Royal Mum, happy mudding!

  120. Gus & BooBear

    Macy, we all give as we can and we’re sure Rebecca and AJ appreciate each and every donation. We can’t give as much as we would like, but we are really happy that some on the blog are able to give alot. Us Texas critters are going North to Alaska (even if it’s in picture only)!!

    I want to thank each of the teams that banded together to help the kennel, those of you who are still being drafted to teams, those who sponsored checkpoints, those of you who support in any way you can no matter the amount or the means. Please know that your support and friendship amaze me everyday and that I am sincerely grateful for each and every one of youse. You have lifted the burden from my shoulders and replaced it with the comfort of the quilt—thank you.

    Rio: AJ did have to speak at the mushers banquet. He shared a story of how the team followed him up to one of the house that served as a checkpoint. Suddenly, he found he was not alone on the deck, but had 14 of his closest four-leggeds with him. The purse paid out enough to cover the expense of running the race which we desperately needed. I’m very proud of AJ and the dogs, very proud indeed.

    We are very impressed and amazed by the wealth of love and generosity by the Plunderers, one and all! What a great group you are!
