Friend of the Month Reminder + Baseball!

Last day of the month? Funny how that keeps happening. But:  time for the Friend of the Month reminder. See Poochie over there on the right? He’s Chet’s Friend of the Month for March. All his human companion did was send in a photo to the gallery. The random number generator (see below) did the rest, and Poochie’s human companion qualified for a signed and paw-printed copy of The Sound and the Furry. This could be you! Just send in a photo – as Rocky & Percy, and Buster did today. Welcome!

As for baseball. Thank God! It means there’s such a thing as summer. Here’s Admin’s World Series forecast:

Head: Rays vs. Cards.

Heart: Red Sox vs. Dodgers (a bicoastal extravaganza!)

    Good morning, everyone! Spring, baseball, friends. Things just keep going round and round.
    Have a one-in-a-million Monday.

    I wonder what kind of pie Spencer likes.

    Off in 15 minutes to take MPM to the airport. It is 4:25 am here. Have I ever gotten up so early? (I don’t think so).

  3. Herd of Hounds

    MPM, safe trip home. Bet you will miss the Hobbit Hotel.

    Welcome spring and summer anyway….

    Good morning all.

    Who are the Rays? We know who the Cards are.

    Safe travels MPM. Hope you had lots of good adventures and remained gluten free. We think your photos were top notch.

    Hobbit, perhaps you will have time for a nap this afternoon.

    ML. Hopefully the doc can give you some good answers this morning. Don’t ever feel guilty about spending that time in Alaska. You had no idea that Rick was seriously ill, and if you had, we know you would have flown home in a second. You just celebrated your 38th anniversary in January, so remember all the truly wonderful moments you shared.

  6. c.hobbit
    8:36 am on March 31st, 2014

    ML: know that you and Rick are in my thoughts and prayers daily. One memory that I will treasure from your visit is that you and Rick talked on the phone daily and you always ended the calls “I love you.” I thought that was sweet.

    B&M: The Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

    MPM: Pay no attention to the evil pug, you took some wonderful pictures that we all enjoyed seeing! Have a safe flight!

    ML: Have no regrets about your trip. We here love you and Rick and are always here for you, day or night.

    Dawson: Thanks for the shout out for the Prof.

    Wyatt, I am sorry I called you Wade, instead of your proper name. You are a handsome dog as well. All the Snowhook dogs are beautiful.

    Will RioMas be tracking MPM flight?

  9. c.hobbit
    8:43 am on March 31st, 2014

    Was there a bit of sniffling when I dropped MPM off at the airport? That would be affirmative. I am already looking forward to both her return and my visit to her neck of the woods.

    When I got home, I looked on Flightaware and it seems that her plane will be delayed by 35 minutes. Perhaps she can grab a bit of breakfast. We did pack her a nice lunch for the plane trip so it should go better than her inbound flights although starting with a delayed flight might be a problem since her layover in Minneapolis is brief. Hopefully, some of that delay can be made up with tailwinds.

    8:45 am on March 31st, 2014

    Another ending to a fabulous trip. sniff.
    Setting up the trakker equipment for the 6 am (Alaska time) take-off.
    Riö: Hope you will be available to trak the MPM’s fight from your end too.
    Hmmm…looks like a delay is showing on the board.

  11. Barb & Maggie
    8:48 am on March 31st, 2014

    Thank you Wose. We will try to remember that all season.

    Dawson, we think the clean house was a mea culpa from the man who lives in your house, after the hotel reservation snafu.

    Staff, when you say May 21st is the start of your gardening season, is that your last average frost date? What do you think your neighbor did to your asparagus? Do you think she over-harvested late in the season and killed off the roots?

  12. Masquers
    8:53 am on March 31st, 2014

    and she’s off!

  13. Masquers
    8:59 am on March 31st, 2014

    what the hey….why did the ETD say DELAYED when actually the plane took off early???
    it may be too Early for this jazzkat, that’s for sure, to work this trakker system. yeep!.
    Riö! Help!

    9:07 am on March 31st, 2014

    Masquers, you were not confused. Hobbit reported a 35 minute delay too.

    Today Barb is off and it looks like this is the best day of the week. 65 and sunny. After today, back in the 40s and lots of rain for the next week. Spring was here for a brief visit.

  16. Masquers
    9:15 am on March 31st, 2014

    B&M: The reported delay may be in getting off the tarmack…the plane is still taxiing.
    It will be a nice day here also and tomorrow too…then back to the wet stuff. March has reportedly been the wettest in Seattle history.

    10:12 am on March 31st, 2014

    Happy Flight MPM! Glad you had such a wonderful time.

    ML – regrets are for those who did something wrong. You lived and loved and had wonderful children and precious puppies. You never talked to us without mentioning what a wonderful husband Rick is, and you ended every phone conversation with him with I Love You.
    You have no need for regrets.

  23. Staff
    10:18 am on March 31st, 2014

    Barb, and Maggie,
    Yes the asparagus was over harvested by the neighbor. Mr.Staff did not know that over-harvesting late in the season would have a bad effect on the plant. Now he does. He did mention at the time that he never got another asparagus spear out of the garden after she left. I never allowed that to happen when I was guarding the garden. snort. Amateurs! We had 5 prolific clumps two years ago and last year we had 3 barely growing clumps. Grrrrrr. I made him let all the spears grow in hopes that it would restore the plants. We shall see.

    10:21 am on March 31st, 2014

    Spence has had a hard winter.
    I need to write down his World Series predictions. I learned last season that I don’t remember them.

    I am looking forward to more Zeta and Teddy pictures.

    I am liking the pictures of Belle Starr. Don’t tell her I said this, but she is cute.

  25. O'Howlers
    10:23 am on March 31st, 2014

    Mornin’. ML, Hope you read our early morning post on the end of yesterday’s blog.
    It is supposed to be sunny and warmer here today, and Tuesday and Wednesday aswell. We are ready for Spring.

  26. Barb & Maggie
    10:31 am on March 31st, 2014

    Staff, That is too bad. Maybe you could buy a few crowns and replenish your bed. Do you think the neighbor just didn’t know better? We doubt if she knew she was damaging anything. What happens if the stalks are pulled, rather than cut off? Does that damage the roots also?

    We remember one year when a friend’s grown daughters told her they would go to the garden and pick beans for her. They pulled every plant out and then brought them up for her to pull the beans off. NEVER let an amateur loose in your garden!

  27. Siber-H
    10:31 am on March 31st, 2014

    Macy and Family, You guys are in our thoughts and prayers. I am glad you were able to make the trip to Alaska. Everyone on the blog has already expressed so well why you should not have regrets about going.

  28. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:00 am on March 31st, 2014

    Song!…this song keeps playing in my flat-head…sniffle!

    I’m so glad we had this time together, Just to have a laugh, or sing a song. Seems we just get started and before you Know it Comes the time we have to say, “So long”. There’s a time you wanna sigh for dreamin. And a time for things you have to do. The time I love the best is any evening I can spend a moment here with you. When the time comes and I’m feelin’ lonely And I’m feelin’ oh so blue. I just sit back and think of you only And the happiness still comes through. That’s why I’m glad we had this time together. Cause it makes me feel like I’m along.

    11:15 am on March 31st, 2014

    If baseball means summer, bring it on!

    ML: I’m very saddened to hear of the effects of the chemo on Rick. But Alaska…the Alaska trip was meant to be and you were meant to be there with the rest of us. If you hadn’t been there we may have never seen Whittier and the infamous tsunami sign that Spence later posted on the blog! The whole Alaska experience would have been so much less without your input. Please have no regrets. Know that we are here beside you in this difficult journey and hope that our love and caring can help you have the strength to endure until the real Rick comes back to you.

    BooBear: Also thinking of your Mom & Dad during this time and sending peaceful and healing prayers.

    Sad, sad tales of Amateurs in the Garden. Oh, Dawg.

    Rio: We are committing those Words to Memory. Sniff.

    O’Howlers! InCorgnito! Love It!

  35. Masquers
    11:56 am on March 31st, 2014

    T&G: Please do reconsider…youse would look so kool.

  36. Staff
    12:00 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Love the incorgnito’s.

    Staff’s garden. There are so many problems. Sigh. I went out the back door this morning and noticed the 2 foot high mound of snow had melted off of the garden area outside the back door. I also noticed that the Turtleman has ONCE AGAIN piled up yard debris on top of the plants that attempt to grow in that shady part of the yard. He did this two years ago and killed a Bleeding Heart plant that had lived there happily for many years. He was warned never to do that again. Hmmmm. Guess those warnings only have a shelf life of one year.



  37. Tenzing
    12:01 pm on March 31st, 2014

    T&G: Take note—a lot of things happen when you least expect them like the time I dozed off on New Year’s Eve and woke only to find someone put a crown on me. Blue is a good color on me.

  38. Wose-the small and meek
    12:10 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Tenzing: You look quite regal in your crown, and yes, blue is a good color for you!
    Perhaps the sparkly one crowned you while you were napping.

    O’Howlers: Snicker!

    Rio: What song is that? I can picture you sitting around a campfire with your little harmonica singing that song.

    Siber-H: My VBFF is very cute.

  39. Wose-the small and meek

    Wookie and Rio up top!

  40. Barb & Maggie
    12:12 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Love Bleeding Heart. Will have to get one for our front garden, which is shady. Tell Turtleman to put the debris somewhere else.

    Sure is quiet around here without Sammy. Guess poor little Joe is now the object of his affections back at home. No one is safe till he gets his snip-snip later this week.

  41. Belle Starr
    12:13 pm on March 31st, 2014

    SiberH: Not only am I cute, I’m also adorable.

    Rio: The life of Riley is not all it’s cracked up to be. I worry about whether or not I will get out of trouble. I stress over my sparkle supplies. I have to to keep an eye on that Damn Pixie and said sparkle supply. I have to campaign for tummies—this belly isn’t going to rub itself. Plus, I’ve never eaten a Zinger. This bothers me.

  42. Tenzing
    12:16 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Wose: My Lady took credit for the crown, but part of me suspects the Giant.

    ML: True words have been shared about your time in Alaska. Please know, you are in our hearts and prayers. We treasure the time we were able to have with you.

  43. Masquers
    12:19 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Flight update: John F Kennedy Intl (KJFK) is currently experiencing inbound flights delayed at their origin an average of 50 minutes due to wind.
    This will allow MPM extra time to get to her gate.
    Terry Ballard reported snow in his area of NYC this am.
    Rose: How about you?

  44. Wookie's and Teddy's Dad
    12:19 pm on March 31st, 2014

    So much going to comment on.

    First and foremost, you heard it hear first. World Series 2014 –the Nationals versus the Orioles (a Washington,DC/Baltimore World Series)

    I love Rio’s song — its the theme song from the Carol Burnett show (see below).

    Ah Asparagus — i think I had posted once in the past a long time ago the story of the unfortunate incident of Wookie and Casey in the asparagus patch. Suffice to say that two dogs wrestling in the asparagus patch does not make for long-lived asparagus plants. Oh well.

    Mail is off to Bedford, TX.

    And some photos to be posted shortly.

  45. Wookie's and Teddy's Dad
    12:21 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Photo number one: Puppies in the Mist. And this is a “G” rated photo — it really is just two puppies in the mist when we were out walking on Saturday (location being Blockhouse Point Park, outside of DC).

  46. Wookie's and Teddy's Dad
    12:23 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Photo number two: Stick, stick, who’s got the stick?

  47. Wyatt
    12:24 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Wose: I can’t hold a grudge for calling me Wade. Truth be told, I may have seemed like two dogs when MPM and CHobbit visited the kennel. When they arrived, I was first in line for attention. Belle Starr, Luna, Tenzing, and Annabelle also got in line for introductions and scritches. Once my turn was finished, I got back at the end of the line and went through again for more attention. I may have done this more than two times, but I shouldn’t be held accountable for anything more than two as such numbers two mean little to me.

  48. c.hobbit
    12:39 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Wose: another reason I can’t be a future musher….on the trail AJ told me to say Haw when we got to the markers in the distance. I knew we were on the home stretch and figured the dogs knew it too so it was a safe bet they would turn. So when the time came, I said Haw and the dogs went Gee. This left me saying Haw, Haw, Haw (I sounded like a crow). The cool part was that we were on the Iditarod trail in Willow–AJ said that the dogs went Gee because they remembered their race trail.

    Wyatt: you stuck by my side being petted almost the whole time the dogs were getting hooked up for mushing. You were the perfect height because my hand just rest naturally on your back–plus I couldn’t ignore you when you would come up and then bump against me with your rear wanting to be rubbed.

  49. Wose-the small and meek
    1:00 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Masquers, The day has turned sunny here, just in time for the Mets home opener. It is, however, very windy.

    Hobbit, I had trouble Hawing and Geeing as well. But the Giant was the passenger on my sled, so the dogs knew who was really in charge.

    Wyatt, you are a very clever dog to go to the back of the line for more scritches. Did you get tummies as well? I wonder if you remember when Grizz and I came to your house. Grizz spent a lot of time dog whispering to youse. I think you might have been the dog who bellied up for Grizz when we first got to your house.

    This is why Belle Starr is my VBFF. I have to worry about getting into trouble, and once I’m in it, I have to worry how I will get out of it. Batting my lashes doesn’t seem to be as effective for me.

    Belle Starr, The next time I get in trouble, and I know it will be soon, can I come live with you?

  50. Wose-the small and meek
    1:03 pm on March 31st, 2014

    There could be no truer romantic couple in the nation within than Teddy, and his girl Zeta. They are so cute! sniff

    1:14 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Thank you!
    Rio and Wookie & Teddy’s Dad for that wonderful Carol Burnett tune. I remember her singing it at the end of her shows. I must have something in my eyes today – they keep leaking.

    Teddy and Zeta: I cannot get enough pictures and news about you two. I vote you the most photogenic couple of the year! More, more, more!

    I am going for a walk in the bright sunshine to the library, among other places. I have had to resort to reading cookbooks the last couple days. Now I want to start fermenting some sourdough…

    Siber-H; You seem to flirt with every female Siber that you see a photo of. I bet you are making Natasha miffed. You may never get your paws on her Porshe again.

    I sent some of youse a long email but I think it got stuck in cyberspace. I am not sure I have the heart or time to recreate it so let’s hope for the best.

  77. Siber-H
    4:04 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Ok, you guys, C.Hobbit and HOH

    Belle Starr is cute and adorable, but she is too girly for me. I think of her like a kid sister. (whispering) I do not like bling.

    Natasha’s old, borrowed, Porsche is in my garage. I am a happy Siber.

    5:15 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Okay. I resent the email. I had to wait until my server brought it up again to “retry.” One recipient already got bounced back as undeliverable.

    Rio: I personally witnessed MPM drinking airbornne everyday.

    Siber: we are just teasing. It is perfectly alright to complement the ladies.

    Sunny, sunny day here and Sadie and I have taken an overdue walk. I should hear about her cancer test today.

  81. Barb & Maggie

    Hobbit, we got it. We see why you didn’t want to have to re-do it!

    I will try responding as I read comments.

    Howlers, thanks for that. We will always have Whittier! Heh-heh, some us have fonder memories of that than others!

    Thank you all for your kind comments. The quilt is very comfy.

    MPM should be arriving at JFK shortly and it looks like she will have a 2-hour layover before her final flight home.

    ML, mom says she has fond memories of looking at the inside of her hood, something about being out-voted.

    RioMas Airline Trakkers, you said run and I sure did. I was galloping, pulling my luggage, and hopping on and off the moving sidewalks. Feet don’t fail me now! I made it just in time. Sams mom will be following your tracking to see when to take Loulou home. Once I’m in the air she can do it.

    24 runs, 31 hits later, the Phils have won their Opener. WOOO HOOOO!!

    I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!
    Play ball!

    One source now says 8:07 and another 8:17…we shall see.

    SiberH is like another Outlaw to me. They are my brothers from another mother. They may tease me and I may blame for every misdeed, but we love each other.

    That Damn Pixie says we don’t have a SDD from our favorite Hobbit, and when I politely and sweetly asked if I could get my own SDD address she said no. I told her that Rio has his own SDD and if it is good enough for him, it is good enough for me. She smirked at this argument! Yes, smirked! I’m so upset I could SPLORT sparkles. Grump!

  93. Herd of Hounds
    7:14 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Belle Starr, don’t splort sparkles. Mean old mom makes us share with her and SHE stole the avatar 🙁

    These planes spend more time on the runway than they do boarding.

    Yay! MollysMom is on the way!

    Well the Mets opening day was like any other…..they choked in extra innings.
    I hope my Yankees will do better tomorrow.

    Kat, Your fierce self is up top.

    8:06 pm on March 31st, 2014

    But hey…who knows…with a tail wind it could even be at 9:32 it’s which ever way the wind blows (we are beginning to understand why air traffic controllers are prone to early retirement.

    Half-Way!….MollysMaw is exactly halfway home…snorkel!

    8:22 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Rio — are you sure? I think the Rockies are playing Miami tonight in Miami (and just between us, it is not looking good right now).

  109. Masquers
    8:23 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Tuesday, April 8th, the Mariners play ball!

    MPM is going to be tuckered out when she finally gets home. Loulou will be sooo glad to see her.

    Good luck to the new FOM tomorrow. Wish you all good luck. Maybe it will even be moi! Barb says we need to get Lucy on there too, so she has a chance.

  111. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:31 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Gulp!…I was wrong! The Rockies are playing Miami tonight, right NOW!…squeeek!…How the hell did I mess that up?…wheeze!…All this flight trakking has me discumbobbled…gasp!

    Yikes: The Eastern contingent has to run their own Iditarod to get to Alaska and back. Thank dog Molly’s Mom caught that last flight. Soon she will be home and snuggled up to Loulou. Thanks for the tracking Masquers and Rio.

    Two hours until the University of Sing Sing comes on.

    Today, the cost of mailing a letter in Canada went from 63 cents to 85 cents!

    One of Spencer’s picks for the World Series, the Rays, won their opening game 9 – 2 against Toronto.

  113. c.hobbit
    8:39 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Dawson: goodness! When the US raises rates, it seems like it is 5 cents at a time. That is a big jump in postage that was already high.

  114. Barb & Maggie
    8:40 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Dawson is right, both of you do a great job on tracking.

    Getting ready to wander off towards the bedroom. It is thundering and I don’t like that. Lucy doesn’t seem to be paying much attention, but who knows, maybe her hearing isn’t so good.

    Thinking of Marylou and Rick, and Karen and Truman tonight, Zoe too.

  115. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:42 pm on March 31st, 2014

    SiberH!…Did you see what I saw?…snort!…The Marlins have cheerleaders…gah!…On the field during the game actual cheerleaders…spit!

  116. Masquers
    8:48 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Cheerleaders in baseball? This is the beginning of the end for sure.

  117. Herd of Hounds
    8:52 pm on March 31st, 2014

    The Marlins were the first (to begin the end). Mom says we don’t need no stinking baseball cheerleaders! And on that note (a flat for sure) we are heading nighty night.

  118. Masquers
    8:53 pm on March 31st, 2014

    MPM has arrived in Buffalo and soon will be home with little LouLou.

    8:53 pm on March 31st, 2014

    OMDog! Cheerleaders in Baseball? What is the world coming to??? That is the silliest thing I have ever heard of. Grump. Sheesh.

  120. Siber-H
    8:56 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Rio, I am splorting…cheerleaders.

    Yes, Masquers…very well said, “The Beginning of the End”.
    sob, sob, sob

    There was a time when baseball was about the sport and not the money.

  122. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:27 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Splort!…I’m glad I missed most of that game…grunt!…Unfortunately the sight of those cheerleaders are burned into my brain. Just like CHobbit, every time I close my eyes I see them in their bright orange jumpsuits doing cartwheels….yeeeeep!

    Just watched the Ubiversity of Sing Sing. A terrific documentary. Rose, you should be very proud of the Grizz. We certainly are.

  124. Mollypop's Mom
    9:42 pm on March 31st, 2014

    I’m home, I’m home, I’m home! Thanks to the very good tracking done by the RioMas Aviation Corp. It was easy for Sam’s mom to deliver Loulou in time to greet me at the door.

    I’m exhausted. That was a very difficult travel day.

  125. dawson
    9:50 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Mollypop’s Mom: You made it! I bet Loulou is happy to have you back.

  126. Thieves!
    10:02 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Our collars are off to Katdog Masquers and Rio for tracking so much travel this winter and nary a plunderer was lost. Well done!

    We are sad to see MPM go and that we never had a great opportunity to dog into her purse for Chapstick and other savory items, but we are glad she is home safe and sound.

  127. c.hobbit
    10:12 pm on March 31st, 2014

    Welcome home MPM! Sorry you had a difficult day of flight but you plundered on and made it! Just like with your mushing experience. Tomorrow it might seem like an adventure.

    Greetings from the presidential suite of the Most Expensive Hotel in Bedford. I now have my own bed. It is a hospice suite with a pull out couch in an attached room I have “contacts” here. We are not quite to the hospice stage yet. But Rick gets anxious when he wakes up alone, so I get the first shift.

    We had a pizza party here tonight. Mr decided that he needed pizza from a place 30 minutes from here. Luckily, his sweet sister lives near there so she and her spouseman brought over a couple and the Pepsi that is not available in the hospital. My mom, SIL, BIL, me, Angie all crowded in, and then Niki popped in from Austin. It will be nice to have someone to take a day shift for me.

    ML: The Quilt is always here for you. Remember it is not just for those who are sick, but for hurting hearts and worrit minds as well. Tenzing upped the snack order. Help yourself.

  130. dawson
    10:23 pm on March 31st, 2014

    ML: Pizza party! Good to hear that you may get a day shift off. Perhaps you will have time to sleep! Hugs.
