Friend of the Month Reminder

Whoa! Sept. 1 and we haven’t even had the friend of the month reminder? Descent into chaos! Is it because we have no strategy? Forget that. The point is – see Ozzie over there on the right? He’s Chet’s Friend of the Month for August. All his human companion did was send in a photo to the gallery (as 3-legged warrior, Maisie Teckel on a big day, and Elliot the massage kat did today). The random number generator did the rest, and HC qualified for a signed and paw-printed copy of PAW AND ORDER. This could be you! Just send in a photo.

Meanwhile, from the Decatur Book Festival, one of our younger readers:

    Greetings!

    Happy Labor Day!

    LouLou: Please call the ASPCA. I can’t bear the thought of you and Sammie going through such abuse! The horror!

    Alice M: Good one last night about Rio causing the earthquake. I am still laughing!!

    Yeah, where are the pictures from Alaska? Is Hobbit hear boring fugitives?

    Hey, even though Ozzie is a cutie, we need a new friend of the month. I really love the picture of Elliot , the massage cat. He would make a worthy FOC.

    That is the cutest baby up top!

    Good morning HOH, and everyone. Happy Labor Day, and also Happy Birthday to Lyla who is 8 today.

    Read the early morning post from C Hobbit. Sounds like a good time was had by all. And a near altercation with a moose! Good thing Rio’s friend was alert or they might have had moose stew.

    Good luck to the new FOM, whoever it might be!

    Ahem……my post from 9:13 should have read, “is Hobbit harboring fugitives”?
    GAH!

  9. Tupper and Gilly
    10:05 am on September 1st, 2014

    Wose – we had to laugh at your corking otter. To think that Hobbit could “hear boring” fugitives. Could anyone be LESS boring than the current guests at the Hobbit Hotel?
    tee hee

    Good morning! Have a good Labor Day, and remember to thank your union friends for the 3-day weekend.

    Happy Birthday to Lyla!!!

    Chet, Pick me! Pick me! Pick me!

    btw, I hid in the cornfield with Kat, all the way down by the road when the ‘rents rode off on their bikes. When they got home, I greeted them, and got treats for being such a good boy. But Mom told Kat thanks for keeping me in. wth!

  14. Barb & Maggie
    11:14 am on September 1st, 2014

    I wondered what Wose was trying to say. Thanks for clearing that up!

    Zeus, sounds like you had a little excitement this morning. Why didn’t you keep following them? Were you inside a fence?
    Jack is here for a few hours and he brought his bike, but no walkies for the time being, due to rainy skies.

  15. Zeus
    11:27 am on September 1st, 2014

    No egg-citement, Maggie. I was calm, cool, and collected. They keep testing me, and I keep passing these tests.

    Zeus, whose a good dog?
    BB, we are with you and hope we hear/see something from those “boring fugitives” soon.

    September sneaked in slyly skipping, smelling of smoke, sandalwood and a soupcon of sauerkraut, sauntering past savvy sleuths. (Thanks to the letter “s” and the Thesaurus.)

    Happy Labor Day! Like O’Howlers I thank my union ancestors for this holiday.

    Happy Birthday Lyla!
    Welcome to Elliot the Massage Cat, the 3 legged pug and cute puppy on her first day home. I second the vote for Elliot to be FOM for September.

    It is almost 9 o clock Alaska time. I wonder how much “apple pie” (shine) was imbibed last night?

  20. C.hobbiti
    12:57 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Stay tuned. Instead of having breakfast, Rio’s friend is downloading fotos onto the editing software. It turns out that Nana and I are on par with MPM with taking fotos

  22. C.hobbiti
    1:12 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Heh, heh. Nana and I are all thumbs meaning our thumbs blocked half the lens. Either we will learn or our thumbs will have to be amputated. In my defense I was using Nana’s kamera and was unfamiliar with it

  23. Siber-H
    1:15 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Whew, I was afraid Masquers was still up a tree in Alaska, and Rio had landed somewhere in the Arctic Circle

  24. c.hobbit
    1:20 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Grump!…I’m pretty sure there will be absolutely no photos of me and my friend together on this special trip….grumble!…Those two others will have to learn how to take their paws away from the front of the kamera lens – what the HELL!!!….snort!

    Maskers!….Here is one from yesterday!…grunt!…I can’t keep this Kat off my flat-head!…wheeze!

  25. Rio - The Evil Pug

    Rio: Did you finally sleep the shine off from last night?

  28. Thieves!
    1:53 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Rio: Check your SDD and your go-phone quick like a little pug filled to yor flat head with Mick’s shine and looking for a tree.

    Happy Birthday to the awesomest 29-year old we know.

  45. Tupper and Gilly
    4:12 pm on September 1st, 2014

    That little café/bakery is lovely with all the flowers. But we have a question – they look like summer flowers, but folks are wearing jackets. What is the weather like in AK this time of year?

  46. Tupper and Gilly
    4:13 pm on September 1st, 2014

    And HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOST AWESOME ONE! We were very surprised – you don’t look a day over 28!

  47. Wose- the small and meek
    4:19 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Happy Birthday, Awesome! You will always be forever young!

    Happy Birthday, Awesome Dawson!

    Happy Birthday Dawson! Husky birthday hugs!

    I like the picture of Friend and Nana and the beautiful flowers.

  51. Mollypop's Mom
    4:41 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Siber-H, that’s CHobbit and Nana.

  52. Wose- the small and meek
    4:42 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Doesn’t Rio’s friend look so happy! I am very glad she went north to Alaska!

  53. Wose- the small and meek
    4:44 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Oooops! It appears I have been mistaken as well.

  54. dawson
    4:46 pm on September 1st, 2014

    SiberH: That is Hobbit and Nana with the beautiful flowers. That must be “friend” with the dreamiest man (after she’s had a sip or two of shine). Is she trying to braid his golden locks? Hands off!

    I try to ignore birthdays (except for the birthday check from Dad) but my sister always spills the beans. With thanks to y’all, I bequeath all my birthday greetings to Lyla.

    Nana: Alert, upright, professional. Burp!

    Thanks Rio for giving us pictures!

  55. B.Stover
    4:53 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Baby!
    I keep forgetting to say…that is a beautiful baby with excellent taste in books. Wait! Paw and Order is not a teething toy!

  57. Herd of Hounds
    4:56 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Hs anyone else noticed that the Friend, Nana and CHobbit are twins?

  58. Siber-H
    5:18 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Oh Dawg, My bad

    They are kinda triplets in pictures but probably not in real life.

  59. C.hobbiti
    5:49 pm on September 1st, 2014

    At lunch comparing fotos we took in the mountains overlooking Anchorage. Rio’s friend has given up on me and Nana. Between the thumb shots and my stellar foto of the gravel ground (which she has threatened to post as the “winner”), I am surprised she hasn’t snatched our kameras from our paws. Nana took a long distance foto of Shelley and then was asking if it was her. Mind you there were only 3 of us at the lookout and it definitely wasn’t me or Nana. That eliminates 2 of the possibilities.

    Awesome Dawson: we toasted you at lunch. Rio’s friend and Nana with wine and me with Diet Pepsi. Happy day to youse

  60. Barb & Maggie
    5:50 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Love the pictures. Especially like the one of Hobbit and Nana with then flowers. Whoever took the one of Rio’s Friend and AJ must have been focusing on AJ and didn’t realize she was cutting off the top part of someone’s head! Still a cute picture tho.

    Happy Birthday Dawson. Enjoy your day.

  61. Mollypop's Mom
    5:57 pm on September 1st, 2014

    These Alaskan photographers did not, I repeat did not, attend my School of Photography. They are rank amateurs obviously.

  65. Wolfie
    6:28 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Yay! And we’re still here on Eagle Drive! Hopefully it won’t be moose head stew or anything along those lines.

  66. Wolfie
    6:29 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Especially if it won’t get here for a few years. Splort!

  67. Herd of Hounds
    6:37 pm on September 1st, 2014

    No fair to post the quiz question during the dinner hour. mom has a rule about blogging and eating at the same time.
    Hey, mom was wearing the dredded owl hat that we want to rip apart (and AJ, does too).

  68. Herd of Hounds
    6:39 pm on September 1st, 2014

    WE are good sports (or is that splorts?) so congratulations to Wolfie W.

  69. dawson
    7:02 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Wolfie: I’m sure I would be stopped at the border if I tried to import some moose head stew!

    HOH: As you are the 3rd person, I will send you a “prize” also.

    I am going to lounge around reading Paw and Order for the rest of the day.

  70. Billy's Buddy
    7:11 pm on September 1st, 2014

    HOH, we here in Wisconsin noticed that Friend of Rio, Nana, and CHobbit look like twins! Very beautiful twins!

  71. Herd of Hounds
    7:12 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Dawson, no prize necessary but mom thanks you. You Idea of reading is a great one and we are about to dive back into PAO and maybe finish it tonight. Paws crossed.

  72. Herd of Hounds
    7:15 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Looks like the last foto posted was taken at the ceremonial start last March out in front of the quilt shop which Staff will go batty over!

  73. Herd of Hounds
    7:17 pm on September 1st, 2014

    BB, you’ve really got it but we think one twin is missing…MPM.

  74. Billy's Buddy

    RIO! MASQUERS! Will there be kool jazz tonight?
    This picture must have been taken by Rio’s friend…no thumbs or cut off heads.

  78. Tupper and Gilly
    7:48 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Masquers – so glad you got to go to Alaska, but we question your judgment in companionship. Or is there a harmonica/sax concert in the making?

  79. Thieves!
    7:51 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Rio: If Masquers is riding atop your flat head, it seems to us you are doing a lot of the work, but we know Masquers brings other things to the table like jazz.

    Happy Bithday Dear Jennnnnnnie…..

    I am pretty sure that the Mick in the picture has two legs. Any prize for that? heh-heh.

    Whoever took the picture of AJ cannot be blamed. as someone once or maybe more, said, dreeeeeeeeamy.

    More pictures, more adventures, more, more, more. (and another slug ‘o apple pie.)

  84. ML
    10:22 pm on September 1st, 2014

    Last night my mom called and said that she felt terrible, so I took her to the ER. Her heartrate was all over the place, topping out at 178 (and she had not even seen the picture of AJ), so they admitted her. I have been hanging out at the hospital all day, and I know you are all jealous of the cafeteria BarBQ and Mac and Cheese that made up my holiday fare. She seems to be doing fine heart-wise now, she has a UTI, so they kept her over tonight. Hopefully tomorrow will be the end of that place. It is also my last day of day camp, so we will have to do some figurin on how to be in two places at once.

    And as Macy already said, Happy BD AWESOME one. Here’s a ticket for the Whittier tunnel.

  85. Tupper and Gilly
    11:04 pm on September 1st, 2014

    ML – sheesh, girl. We are doing our best to throw you a break. Try your best to catch it.
    Believe it or not, that nasty UTI could be responsible for the heart rate and the lousy feeling. All paws crossed that tomorrow is a better day.

    We are having a good laugh here. There is a new female stringer reporter on the local news. Someone apparently told her to make sure her eyes were wide open when she is on camera. She looks like someone is twisting her knickers REALLY tight behind her. Her eyes look like tennis balls.

    No storms around here, but there was another tornado in Massachusetts. What? Dorothy, are we in Kansas??
