Friend of the Month Reminder!

Time for the friend of the month reminder! See Milwaukee Millie over there on the right? She’s Chet’s Friends of the Month for June. All her human companion did was send in a photo to the gallery. The random number generator (see below) did the rest, and HC qualified for a signed and paw-printed copy of The Sound and the Furry. This could be you! Just send in a photo.

    Good morning! Mom is here having a vacation. This is seriously distracting us from our normal workaday lives.
    Last night, they came home late, from a grand old time at the Brit pub where the Manatawny Ramblers were playing, and the outdoor patio, deck, lower deck, and big lawn were filled to the brim with happy 2-leggeds celebrating a beautiful summer night. Pop had wings, Mom had quesadilla. Beer was plentiful. This place is well-known for their ever-changing large variety of beer. They don’t even advertise, yet business booms.
    Nana, we did not remember when your trip to Diluth (not east!) is. Do you leave today? Fare thee well!
    Macy, if we are not too late, we want to weigh in on the flea spot-on stuff. We get that stuff once a month, but we get it from the v-e-t. Once upon a time, Mom used Biospot, which you can buy cheap from pet places. Moonman had a severe reaction and ended up in emergency for the weekend. Do NOT use that stuff.

    Good morning, OH on vacation and everyone! FOTM? So soon? Boomers and rain all night made it a 4 dawg night around here. A large, warm pile of 2 and 4 leggers 🙂 WE did a good job, yes we did.
    Have a summer Monday be it warm, wet, wild or westful (or in Nana’s case, “eastful”)

    Good morning all. Got up this morning and saw a tornado warning on our Smart phone for 2:00 a.m. Glad it didn’t happen as we were sleeping thru it!

    Howlers, have a great, relaxing and productive vaca.

    OMD! It’s Monday already? Then that means
    Tomorrow Chet will be announcing the new FOTM.
    Dudes in flannel shirts…Lol.

    Hounds: Eastful. snicker. It Could be a Muggy Monday too.

    O’Howlers: Nana is leaving on the Red Eye tomorrow night (actually Wednesday morning in the wee small hours)
    Paws crossed for clear weather. Yeep.

    Barb&Magpie: Yowzer! Apparently your Smarty Phone didn’t feel the need to Wake-You-Up.

    Bear, Will RioMas be tracking Nana’s flight?

    Not much going on at WosenGrizz’s. Job hunting, head shrinking (for me), eating, and on-line tutoring for the Prof.

    Good day to all!

    Siber-H was returned to his desert home in the wee small hours of the morning. I wouldn’t want to upset his Mom by returning him late…heh.

    Mission accomplished. I think if you google a certain part of Alaska and look at the ‘street view’ you will see a huge red ‘oil spill’. snicker. Good aiming Mr.Husky. And good intel from some 4 leggeds in AK as to where to aim.

    She’s the Cowgirl in the family.

    Alice & Siber-H: WoooHooo!! Mission Accomplished!

    Wose: Due to the Late Hour RioMas may or may not be up and running. We shall see…..

    Dear Plunderers: An e-mail has been circulating that has many of us confused. On last night’s blog, Rebecca mentioned that she posted a letter on Dishlickers.
    Please read this letter.

  19. Siber-H
    10:54 am on June 30th, 2014

    Stover, About the “dudes in flannel shirts”…

    Spence must be referring to the Seattle music scene. In the early nineties a subculture of rock bands emerged in Seattle called grunge rock. They wore flannel shirts and got started playing in their garages.

  21. Siber-H
    11:02 am on June 30th, 2014

    Wose, Thank you for the info.

    A very successful mission last night….thanks to Alice, the Thieves and Wyatt. I am sure the Navy Seals will be trying to sign us up.

    It is suppose to get up to 101 here today. I have closed up my construction business until the heat wave breaks.

  22. B.Stover
    11:03 am on June 30th, 2014

    Thank you Siber-H. Now I understand.

    For some reason I can’t get on Dishlickers.

  23. Siber-H
    11:13 am on June 30th, 2014

    I can’t get on dishlickers either.
    Would it be possible to email us what is on dishlickers?

    Plunderers, If you don’t use Yahoo often you may have missed the announcement about Windows 8 (non)support. That might be one reason you are not able to get into dishlickers. There is also an undersea cable that was cut that is affecting some users. Here is a link to more info. sent out by Yahoo

  30. O'Howlers

  39. Barb & Maggie
    1:43 pm on June 30th, 2014

    Bear, The reason the Smart phone didn’t wake us up is that a not-so-smart person turns her phone off at night so she will not be disturbed. Especially by those pesky little things like tornadoes!
    Very lucky here, touchdown was in neighboring town and another about 6-7 miles from here. Neighbors and Josh and Jess were up for hours, Kelly and her family went to the basement. The bike shop alarm went off at 3:00 from the storm. And us, we had a good night’s sleep!

    Sadie and I spent the day yesterday playing and sleeping together. She seems less lost. In the meantime I am still trying to find one missing shoe that Ikette drug somewhere. I’ve covered the house so I guess I will check outside. 🙂

    2:20 pm on June 30th, 2014

    SiberH’s Maw: I may have been over zealous with my dainty licks last night. I hope I didn’t leave a mark. Thanks again for the Slim Jims and belly rubs. It was my favorite covert operation to date.

  42. Tupper and Gilly
    2:30 pm on June 30th, 2014

    Wyatt – you silly, naughty dawg.

    tee hee

  43. Wyatt, the Bad Ass
    2:51 pm on June 30th, 2014

    Silly? Naughty? Are youse talking to me? I hope so. My silliness and naughtiness worked like a charm. SiberH was able to complete his mission, and I got Slim Jims out of the deal. Plus, I learnt a lot about disguises and how they are necessary. In fact, I left a note for the Giant requesting he draw a moosetash and surprised eyebrows on me for my next disguise.

  44. Siber-H
    3:28 pm on June 30th, 2014

    Wyatt, There is not much a dog can do that will piss mom off. She enjoyed visiting with you. And, the mission was a huge success.

    Zeus, Sand! You can practice for when you come visit me. if you decide you like digging in sand, I can show you Paradise.

    4:14 pm on June 30th, 2014

    Teddy and Zeta had a grand time on Saturday, having clearly missed each other considerably while Teddy was in Vermont and celebrating by frolicking in Seneca Creek. A couple of photos follow (SiberH, you may want to shield your eyes). Although I will note that while Zeta did get into the water with Teddy, she was very careful to ensure that her mascara did not run, not one little bit.

  46. Wookie's & Teddy's Dad
    4:15 pm on June 30th, 2014

    And this is Teddy swimming. He is quite the swimmer.

  47. Wookie's & Teddy's Dad
    4:16 pm on June 30th, 2014

    And the last one is Teddy shaking off the water after getting out of the creek. Shake, Teddy, shake!

  48. Wose-the small and meek
    4:23 pm on June 30th, 2014

    Love the pictures! I am sure that Zeta missed Teddy very much!

    Siber-H: Not even dipping your paw in water?

  49. dawson
    4:29 pm on June 30th, 2014

    Wookie’s & Teddy’s Dad: I never get tired of looking at pictures of Teddy Ruff Rider and Zeta. Teddy looks like he has passed his “A” levels at swimming…and what fun to shake that water off!

  50. Mollypop's Mom
    4:32 pm on June 30th, 2014

    Teddy, I love those pictures! Particularly the one of you swimming.

  51. Tupper and Gilly
    4:52 pm on June 30th, 2014

    Wonderful pictures.
    Teddy – it’s ok that you have gone back to your true love. We knew your fling with Gilly was just a vacation thing.

    Wyatt – we think the Giant should draw a moosetache and surprised eyebrows on your Lady while she is asleep. Then the two of you can go out on a mission together.

  52. Siber-H
    4:53 pm on June 30th, 2014

    WOW! Teddy is a good swimmer! He seems to really like it.
    Good for Zeta! I wonder what the two of them are talking about in that picture.

    Wose, Not one paw. Not one toenail.

  53. Mollypop's Mom
    4:56 pm on June 30th, 2014

    I made a delicious dinner. Spaghetti squash with tomatoes, feta cheese, basil and black olives. Now comes the cleanup. When I put the spaghetti squash in the microwave I couldn’t remember if it was six minutes or eight minutes so I did it for eight. It exploded and even blew the door open which probably saved some damage. Now it’s cleanup time.

  54. Tupper and Gilly
    5:15 pm on June 30th, 2014

    MPM – the squash should be either cut in half and cleaned out before cooking, face down, or you can cut deep slits in it to let the steam out.
    That could have been a baaaad accident. Yeeep!

  55. BearSpiritDog
    5:26 pm on June 30th, 2014

    Thieves! Heh. Quick Draw McGraw.

    Teddy&Zeta Photos. Love Them All! Like MollyPop’s Mom we especially love seeing the Ruff Rider doing the Dog Paddle.

  56. BooBear

    I love seeing the Teddy and Zeta pictures too. It’s amazing what a close bond they have.

    Teddy is the true Johnny Weissmuller of the nation withi-in! And Zeta is his Jane.

  58. Mollypop's Mom
    5:34 pm on June 30th, 2014

    T&G, i’ve never been strong enough to cut a spaghetti squash in half. Instead I have used the microwave for years, piercing the squash with a fork. From now on I will use your suggestion of deep slits. The explosion sounded like an atomic bomb.

  59. dawson
    5:40 pm on June 30th, 2014

    Mollypop’s & Loulou’s Mom: Ummm…dinner sounds delish?

    Dog Bless All You Plunderers!

    Speaking of tornadoes…looks as if one has hit this house. I wish I could wiggle my nose and clean it up like Samantha on I Dream of Jeannie.

  60. BearSpiritDog
    5:56 pm on June 30th, 2014

    We Remember That Show! Err, shows…one was I Dream of Jeannie and the other BeWitched. Sam was the one who wiggled her nose.
    Jeannie had the first (scandalous) bare midriff.

  61. Staff
    6:10 pm on June 30th, 2014

    Mollypop’s Mom, Our Mom, Maggie, did that once also. It was a fairly large spaghetti squash and when the microwave blew open the squash splattered into the open shelving on the other side of the nook.

    Oh man was that a lot of clean up- according to Maggie. Luckily I wasn’t there. heh. I am always very careful to make sure I make enough stabs into the squash now. Good luck on the cleanup.

    OK guys, here is a confession. In trying to sound like I knew what I was talking about concerning the yahoo problem, I called Internet Explorer 8 Windows 8. It is IE 8 that is not supported. Internet Explorer 8 is one of the browsers that Microsoft uses to access the web Windows 8 is the upgrade after Windows 7 that we all love to hate. Have I confused you completely yet? I had to go look it up to see if I meant what I am trying to say.

    And if you use Chrome or Firefox you should have no problems.

    AHHH MPM dear, Can you explain it better?

  62. dawson
    6:12 pm on June 30th, 2014

    BearSpiritDog: Yes, it was Bewitched.

  63. Barb & Maggie
    6:18 pm on June 30th, 2014

    Sam was definitely on Bewitched, staring Elizabeth Montgomery. BarbarA Eden played Jeannie and she did have a bare midriff, but she was not allowed to show her belly button. Has tv changed a little since those days? And remember married couples always had twin beds!

    Mollypop’s Mom, Sharon tells me you had an exploding spaghetti squash. Know they are hard to open or stab for you of the fairer sex so try stabbing the heck out of it with a chopstick. This lets out lots of steam.

  75. Tupper and Gilly
    6:55 pm on June 30th, 2014

    MPM – there is a trick to cut it in half

    Lay the squash in its side. Insert the POINT of a large sharp knife deep into the squash. Then use the inserted blade to create a “seam”. Easy peasy.

  76. Barb & Maggie
    7:12 pm on June 30th, 2014

    BIG storms coming in here. Electric already sputtered a couple of times. Tornado warning for the next hour, and then another wave comes in around 9-10:00.

  78. Thieves!
    7:15 pm on June 30th, 2014

    We blink and wrinkle our noses all the time and nothing fancy ever happens. We must be doing something wrong. As far as mid drifts showing, well we show ours all the time. We find that it easier to get belly rubs and who wouldn’t wan their belly rubbed.

    Thieves! Roly Poly chairs. Heh! The National Geographic show about dogs Grizz and I watched had dogs that were taught to drive cars. That’s the ticket.

    We also found out on that show that Rio and Beau are royalty.

    BSD: Devil! The devil is in the details! Although it might be good for us to do a dress rehearsal what with being temps for the first time.

    Not sure about flight tracking but if I can be of assistance, why the heck not?

    BSD, Barb went to a Gallagher show once in Milwaukee and sat in the “wet seats”. The better seats up front came with a disposable plastic pancho so your clothes didn’t get wet when he smashed things. And he was funny.

    I can see where this is heading. I am going to send Savannah along with the Thieves to RioMas headquarters for flight tracking. She can be trusted. She’s also good with details.

    Mom said she is glad that Luna has a calm head and is prevailing. If the DDD gets out of line, Savannah can just grab his pant leg.

    It is true, the Big Ole Auction Machine, BOAM for short—it was either that or taking to calling it Nameless—was purchased at a garage sale. It didn’t come with instructions and required some modifications for tracking bids. Between the handymannes of AJ, Mick the person, not the puppy’s mechanical genius, and a lot of guess work and swearing, chances are it will be up and running come auction time. The Thieves should be able to hot wire it, too but you didn’t hear that from me. Since the explosion of the Bid-o-matic 3000 and the subsequent demise of Auction Central, the lean-to that served as AC during the last auction has been expanded. To honor our Heartfriend, the new and improved AC will be painted with purple trim. My mama is also contemplating painting the door to the auction house purple.

    Now I am really in a time warp. Last night it was Bob Dylan from 1978, and he was great, by the way. Now Megan Kelly FOXNews has an interview with Bill Ayers from the weathermen. She is really confronting him about the bombings, even though they were way back when. You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows – Dylan.

    Walk!…Wheeze!…I go on a long walk and when I come back I don’t understand anything…grunt!…Am I getting Pug-zimers?…sniff!

    BOAM!…Somehow we need to come up with a name for the new Auction Central(machine) that equates to BOOM! because that is what always happens sooner or later…heh!heh!

    Our Lady says the default name for pups is Poopsie-McPoopsalot. Is this the same practice for nameless bidding machines we wonder out loud.

    Cows, ducks and bears, oh my! Tonight while our Lady was doing chores, we wouldn’t settle down. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw a black shape move through the trees just yards away? Was it a black bear? We can’t be certain, but we do know that our Lady made quick work of the chores tonight. We will be on the look out all night long.

    I have been folding fabric. Turns out there is a right way to fold it so you can see it better when you put it on the shelf. And it is sorta fun. Maybe only to a quilter. I use the fold it around a 6×24 inch ruler method. I learned it tonight. I guess I better go to bed now. More folding tomorrow!

    Goodnight you plunderers. Plunder on and on. Tuck under the quilt and stay warm and be well. Please
