Friend of the Month Reminder

Last day of the month already? That means it’s time for the reminder. You can be Chet’s Friend of the Month over here – Just upload a photo! Human companion gets a signed and paw-printed copy of the latest C&B, and the Friend is up there for the whole month. Is this more fun than a barrel of monkeys? Possibly, if we really imagine what a barrel of monkeys would be like. (Although didn’t a monkey play a fun walk-on role in TO FETCH A THIEF?)

    Already? It’s almost July and we are so cold here.

    Oh well. Good morning all

    Good morning all.

    T & G, Are those lovely plants going in the ground today? Pictures will be needed.

    Barb – the landscaping guys should be here any time now. We already have the “before” pics. Can’t wait to take the “afters”.
    Gramp is already talking about going back to the nursery for more.

    My dog, we have created a monster!

    Good morning, Tupper’s Mama and everyone! We are trying to figure why monkeys would be fun in a barrel. We just say, “Not my circus, Not my monkeys”.
    (Thanks to this here blog.) Wish we could be FOMs, but alas, poor Yorick (I knew him Horatio).
    Last of June, FOM and the boarder in the basement’s b-day.
    A truly tumultuous Tuesday. (8:36)

    B&M&L, didn’t mean to omit y’all. Good morning too!

    Golinka: Please look away while we encourage Gramps to embrace his inner monster…ahem…Good going, Gramps! We knew you had it in you. Who’s a good monster?

    We are confused…the sun is shining and we hear boomers. Heading under the bed with mom!

    Well, Mom is getting ready to leave me again. She keeps smiling and saying “Hazel”. I have smelled the little thing on mom when she gets home, and so far I sense no competition.

    9:26 am on June 30th, 2015

    Thieves – who do you think you are kidding? We know why you want even more bushes in the yard.
    You have been hanging out with that Natasha character too long! She is a very bad influence.

    Good morning everybody.
    This is the last day of our Iditarod Insider 2015 subscription and there just happens to be an interview with OFM. If you want to see the Giant sans locks, this is your chance.
    Hope this link works for youse. ^..^

  11. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:44 am on June 30th, 2015

    Masquers, It doesn’t work. The link takes us to the site, but then when you click on his name it just brings up a dog team.

    You have to get into your own account on Iditarod to see the interview with AJ.

    I’m trying to remember a monkey in TFAT.

    Good morning all.

  14. Wookies and Teddy's Dad
    10:34 am on June 30th, 2015

    Thanks Masquers for the tip and to B for the additional explanation — nice interview and he does look a lot different with his locks shorn.

    Barb — glad you are enjoying the Hank Phillippi Ryan books. The Other Woman is a good start for the Jane Ryland series, but it really picks up steam in the second and third books (both of which won the Agatha for best contemporary mystery two years running). She is also a terrifically nice person in person and, as we know from an earlier posting, a big fan of OFA, so what could be better than that.

    Teddy is in heaven these days (here on earth, not above). His girl’s maw and paw are having some work done on their house, so instead of going into doggy day care or something like that, Zeta is spending her days here. The two of them are just having great fun together, and surviving the heat the best they can.

  15. Masquers
    10:45 am on June 30th, 2015

    TeddyRR and Zeta: Moi too…trying to stay kool in the early morning temps before it soars to near 90…which is very hot for the Pacific NW.
    B: I thought some of the Plunderers without benefit of the Insider could share my subscription, but sadly it is not possible.
    Youse know where I’ll be for a while.

  16. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    11:06 am on June 30th, 2015

    W & T’s Dad, We were wondering if the Charlie McNally series is somewhat autobiographical. Hank (born Harriett Ann) is also an investigative reporter for tv, lives near Boston, and married her husband later in life.

  17. Thieves!
    11:14 am on June 30th, 2015

    Shorn like a sheep! We think the Giant’s haircut had clouded his judgment. He seems to be of the opinion that has a say whether or not we should get a Bella Rossa of our very own.

  18. Ms. Pretty
    11:16 am on June 30th, 2015

    I wonder who’ll be chosen FOM?

  19. BearSpiritDog
    11:31 am on June 30th, 2015

    Hi, Ms. Pretty. Who knows? It just Could Be You, you, you!!

  20. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    11:35 am on June 30th, 2015

    Ms. Pretty, You can be our FOD right here! Who’s a cute girl?

  21. Zeus
    11:36 am on June 30th, 2015

    As if I didn’t already do the yeoman’s work on this here farm, what with herding those horses from the barn to the pasture, and back toe barn, as well as accompanying Mom to muck stalls and collect eggs…now I have to play Nanny to Meashka’s mini-me’s mini-me.
    I do what I must.

    Kat, Bella, you look like your daddy dog…quite striking!

  24. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    11:46 am on June 30th, 2015

    Zeus looks relaxed, Kat does not look happy.

  25. Ms. Pretty
    11:55 am on June 30th, 2015

    BSD,BM and L–You are tooo kind, really, (but thank you).

  26. BearSpiritDog
    11:56 am on June 30th, 2015

    OMD! Those Photos are Priceless!!
    Zeus and Bella Rossa Mirroring each other and Meashka actually SCOWLING. LOL.

  27. Diane C.
    11:58 am on June 30th, 2015

    Zeus–You are one dependable guy, and I for one really appreciate your contribution(s). (This is the problem with being one of nature’s noblemen–everyone expects you to do everything. sympathetic sigh.)

  28. Herd of Hounds
    12:51 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Zeus and Meash with Bella, where”s Kat?

  29. B.Stover
    12:56 pm on June 30th, 2015

    That is Kat–looking grumpy.

  30. Tupper's Mama
    12:58 pm on June 30th, 2015

    What a precious baby!

    Unfortunately, the Wrotten Kats and the Rotals have bred a resounding “NO!” for here. Callie was all in, but she has been overridden.

    So, we will just have to puppy cuddle vicariously.

  31. BooBear
    1:10 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Kat does not look happy at all. She be happier when the baby starts to play with her.

  32. Kat
    1:25 pm on June 30th, 2015

    I am not happy. Oh no I am not. That imposter is usurping my #1 Cuteness place. Double-grump

    1:28 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Ms. Pretty! You were quite aptly named! Yes indeedy.

  34. BearSpiritDog
    1:29 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Kat! We should have known. Mama Meash would Never Scowl.

  35. Masquers
    1:34 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Bella Rossa is welcomed to the home of the Oley Howlers…Not.
    Zeusikõv: It’s up to you.

    2:42 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Last day of June already? Waaaah! That means summer is over! Mr. Fireslippers is right! I’d better go enjoy it while I can.
    The weather forecast for today was thunderstorms but instead we had a thunder shower last night. The lightning many fires in the dry bush around town and we were under prepare to evacuate orders. Not that me or my neighbour knew anything about that until this morning when out-of-towners called because they’d seen it on the news. All is well today with no discernible (to me) smoke in the air.

    Tupper’s Mama: What fun! I can’t wait to see the end product. I’ve been wishing lately that I had Gramps’ expertise with landscaping. He’s a kid in a candy store.

    Masquers: Thanks for the link to the insider video.

    W’s&T’s Dad: It’s great that Zeta can stay with you while her parents are gone. A win-win.

    Miss Pretty: Friend of the Day and Month. Irresistible!

    AJ in short hair: looks both older and younger at the same time.

    O’Howlers: I love the pictures of the Howlers’ reactions to Bella Rossa.

    Green Chili Update: I slept way in this morning because I was up late stirring, stirring, stirring. So I did not make huevos. (Sorry Bear Spirit Dog) I will make a bean burrito (same thing, really, without the egg) later tonight.

    I froze two ziplocks of the sauce for the future and kept 1/3 for use now. It makes my ears open up a bit. Very yummy with some Monterey jack cheese.

  37. BearSpiritDog
    2:47 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Dawson: Congratulations on your Successful Green Chili Sauce.
    I will be Blurring Over later this afternoon for the Promised Burrito.

  38. Meashka
    3:09 pm on June 30th, 2015

    The mini me’s mini me just tried to beat up my Kat!!!!!
    I’d better get this thing turned around, and quick.

    One, two, three,
    too red to see,
    3 Sibes in a row
    Too red to know!

  41. BearSpiritDog
    4:09 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Meashka: Looks like the little one is trying to Get Your Attention. I wonder if Kat Said Something Mean.

    Oh my Dear Niece Kat, what to do, what to do!

  43. Kat
    5:00 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Auntie MP&LL’s Mom, I need to come live with you you you.

  44. Junior
    5:22 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Kat: Luna says you can come live with us, but she wants to see eight paws above the straw at all times. It was then that the Thieves made themselves scarce. They mentioned something about flip charts as they ran away.

  45. Masquers
    6:05 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Severe storm watch for eastern states…that means you, Howlers.

  46. Masquers

    TeddyRR too.

  47. Tupper's Mama
    6:42 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Oh my – every picture of the Baby Bella gets cuter and cuter. All she needs are some sparkles.

    So….the landscapers have come and gone. Here is the front of the house this morning.

  48. Tupper's Mama
    6:43 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Here is the front of the house now

  49. Tupper's Mama
    6:44 pm on June 30th, 2015

    The new fence this morning

  50. Tupper's Mama
    6:45 pm on June 30th, 2015

    And now

  51. Tupper's Mama
    6:48 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Plus we made an “emergency” run to the nursery to get another rose, another Quick Fire hydrangea, another wegelia, and a Everlasting Summer pink hydrangea
    The landscaper approved of our choices. He did a marvelous job.

  52. BooBear
    7:18 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Beautiful, Amalia! Mom loves pretty landscaping, but has no talent for putting plants together. She is very proud that she has kept quite a few of the plants from Dad’s service alive and doing well.

  53. Thieves!
    7:22 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Golinka: We will be right over to christen the plants. Beau–if you want to baptize a few plants, let us know and we will blurr by to get you.

  54. Mpop's and Loulou's Mom
    7:28 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Royal Mum, that is beautiful!

  55. Kat
    7:44 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Lovely, T&G. Maybe I could move up there with youse? I am very good with flowers, particularly red ones.

  56. Mpop's and Loulou's Mom
    8:01 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Kat, I would love to have you here but you wouldn’t like downtown living, no big yard to run in, just mostly sidewalks. We go in an elevator to go outside. Let me know if you still want to come, I’d be happy to have you.

  57. Kat
    8:03 pm on June 30th, 2015

    I am packing my bags, Auntie M. The lure of the big city is strong.

  58. Kat
    8:14 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Ms. Pretty, I am voting for you for FOM; however, I must tell you that Bella got Mom to send in her photo. She takes everything, so don’t be surprised if she steals FOM too.

  59. Queen Tupper and Court Jester Gilly
    8:24 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Dear Princess Kat – we would be happy to have you move in with us. However, you will not be the #1 Cutie Pie here either.
    One of us holds that title – we are still debating which one of us it is.

    But, maybe you want to stick around there after all. You do have Mama Meash, and Pints for Pups, and lots of gophers and such to chase. Really – is having a puppy all that bad?

  60. dawson
    8:30 pm on June 30th, 2015

    I meant to tell you all a week ago. Send in a picture with an Independence Day theme and you will win FOM! My new theory.

    T’s & G’s Mom: The landscaper did an excellent job. I need a landscaper of my very own. Your fence is beautiful as well.

  61. dawson
    8:32 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Dinner time.

  62. Herd of Hounds
    8:38 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Princess Kat, I, Lady Lucy Lou, am willing to share my yard with you but it isn’t nearly as big as yours. Also, I occasionally allow sparkles when the Bellie Button has a mission. There is a boat that you might enjoy but you’d have to share with Darah the dozer. All in all, about the same ups and downs as your ‘rents place.

  63. Herd of Hounds
    8:41 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Whoa, just noticed…1) T&G ‘s landscaping is GREAT! 2) Dawson’s dinner looks delish!

  64. Mpop's and Loulou's Mom
    8:42 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Kat, we’ll take long walks after Loulou gets dropped off. Lots of people out at lunch time. Lots of small green parks with big fountains. Be sure to bring your leash.

  65. Tupper's Mama
    8:44 pm on June 30th, 2015

    I wanna move in with Dawson!!!

  66. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    8:46 pm on June 30th, 2015

    We just finished dinner here and are still drooling over Dawson’s! Sure looks better than ours.

    Howlers, looks like the pack is very accepting. Usually puppies fit in fairly seamlessly.

    T & G, your yard looks fabulous. What is the ornamental tree towards the back of the yard? You told us, but I don’t remember. Will you have to trim it to keep it in that shape?

  67. Queen Tupper and Court Jester Gilly
    9:09 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Barb – the tree in back is a Japanese Willow. It is a grafted tree, so it will keep its shape. There are no flowers – as the leaves mature, the ends of them turn pink.
    We are so happy with all the pretty plants!

  68. Martha
    9:26 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Beautiful yard! Amazing dinner!

  69. Herd of Hounds
    9:28 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Queenie and Jestie, you are so lucky to have so much talent in your 2 leggers!

  70. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:41 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Blog!…I am catching up!up!up!…yeeep!….First question: Did Wookie leave his cooling space suit behind for Teddy? One way to beat the heat and look like a complete nerd while doing it…heh!heh!

  71. dawson
    9:56 pm on June 30th, 2015

    I don’t know if you can tell from the picture but that is Rio’s friends green chili on top of some homemade beans. I left the sauce quite thick. It is really delish! I think the chili peppers were just about perfect, heatwise, for me, although I would like to make this recipe with the infamous “hatch” chilies someday.

  72. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:11 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Kat!…Grump! Indeed!…snort!…That is the same expression I had on my face when Beau Landed…grump!

  73. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    10:25 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Great pictures today. Heading off to bed. Nighty noodles!

  74. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:11 pm on June 30th, 2015

    Dawson!…At this moment I could not be more proud of you if I tried…snorkel!…I am so happy you now have another recipe to make and add to various dishes that before may have been bland…heheh!…So very proud of youse!..sniff!

  75. Staff
    12:18 am on July 1st, 2015

    Wow, Great pictures on the blog. I love the flowers that T& G’s Gramp has chosen. They will love the Hydrangea’s. They are one of my favorites. Probably because they are not hardy enough for our Zone3/4 area.

    Nighty noodle all.
