    Goood morning, everyone! Will miss Barb and Maggie for the next few days. Safe trip to Barb. Not real sure about Rio’s plan with shackles, straightjackets, cholorform and ..what else? Hey, weren’t those dogs lots better looking than the hockey players? We think so!

    (OK, so this may be a repeat, but we ALL deserve it.) Have a terrific Thursday:)

    That will be an interesting calendar. I like some of the comments that were posted.

    Good morning all.

    O’cast and yucky here, was thinking about an early nap…before beginning to winterize gas log, fireplace, heater, hummer feeders…YAWN! Mom made herself tired just making the list (and it doesn’t include the mundane, regular chores she looooves sooo much!).

    Good Morning All. Not sure how I ended up sleeping, but I did. Cool.

    Supposed to rain here to HOH. Right now the sun is shinning. The Pack had a good time on their walk. They swam in the river and found windfall apples. They chowed down.

    I am in a weird space. I leave here about 12:30 to do errands, get to Golinka’s at 2:15, and the scan is scheduled for 3:30. It takes 2 hours because I have to be made to glow.

    Might check in later. I know you guys have my back AND all those who are having troubles? I have yours.

    Rio asked about “delegation” last night. It’s a noun. “Delegate” is another very interesting word. It’s both noun and verb. When it’s pronounced with a short “a,” it’s a noun (referring to a representative). When it’s pronounced with a long “a,” it’s a verb (give others tasks to perform). It’s derived from Latin “de” and “legare”–to send. (I’m so glad that I didn’t have to learn English as a second language.)

    Melanie: Thinking of you. I’m glad Amalia will be with you.

  7. Rose
    10:10 am on October 17th, 2013

    Melanie: Talk to Belle Starr. She will make you glow and sparkle.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. I am so glad to know you will have the Royal Mum there with you.

    Love you.

    Melanie: How dare you let the Pack eat apples then take off for the day…now poor Zoe has to put up with the apple poots 🙁

    I just saw this story on the news last night, and I thought if youse missed it, you might want to see it. Have Kleenix handy. sniff

    Nana’s son just put this up under her Facebook page.

    “This is Barbara’s son Scott. She is in critical care at Skagit Valley hospital and has been there since Sunday. I found her in critical condition at home a day after she was at our house. Please pray for her.”

    I know Masquers and BearSpiritDog are with her. I am praying.

  11. Rose
    10:36 am on October 17th, 2013

    Oh, no. I am praying hard for Nana.

  12. Tupper's Mama
    10:47 am on October 17th, 2013

    Oh no. Melanie – can you reach out to Scott and get more info? Praying hard here, and very worried.

  13. O'Howlers
    11:01 am on October 17th, 2013

    Oh my! melanie, thanks for catching that. We are very worried about Nana.

    Melanie, glad you are going to be with Amalia for your scan…you two together should cause some good trouble at the scan place. We will be thinking happy thoughts for you.

  14. Melanie
    11:10 am on October 17th, 2013

    Her son does not seem to be a FaceBook person.

    Not sure how to get in touch with him.

  15. Herd of Hounds
    11:41 am on October 17th, 2013

    WWE are pawraying for NANA too. If an SDD with name or age or area or phone comes electronically, we might could back track it to find out more about this. Mom is computer stupid but willing to help while Melanie & Amalia are tied up in Baaston.

  16. Siber-H
    11:47 am on October 17th, 2013

    Melanie, We are with you today and are so glad Amalia will be there in person.

    We are praying hard for Nana and are very worried. One of us could get in touch with that hospital but they would tell us nothing.

  17. Siber-H
    11:56 am on October 17th, 2013

    That hospital has a website and it is in Mount Vernon, WA.

  18. Herd of Hounds
    12:12 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Siber H: The problem is that there is soooo much privacy the hospital will not give the average joe the time of day about someone ( unless they can lie their donkey off). Again if mom gets electronic info, she is willing to try OR contact Nana’s son OR go Seattle and contact Nana’s son. Let’s hope we hear something pawsitive soon!

  19. dawson
    12:13 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Oh No!
    Big time prayers going out to Nana.

  20. O'Howlers' Mom
    12:15 pm on October 17th, 2013

    I know most of you have given emergency contact info to someone on this blog. Does someone have that for Nana?

  21. Rose
    12:17 pm on October 17th, 2013

    To All–

    I just got off the phone with Skagit Valley Hospital. I spoke with a very nice nurse named Maryann. Since she is not Nana’s nurse, she could only tell me that Nana is in the Critical Care Unit, Room 2013. I am going to try back later to see if I can speak directly to Nana’s nurse. No flowers, but balloons are acceptable.

  22. Macy the min-pin
    12:17 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Back when we were all collecting info for just such and emergency, did anyone get Nana’s?

    Masquers must be in a panic. At least Bear can be with her.

  23. Tupper's Mama
    12:20 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Ok, we have taken the bull by the horns – I know, BIG surprise.

    I called the hospital and got ahold of the Barb’s nurse in critical care. I explained that I knew she could not give me any information, but I have left a message for her family to please get in touch with me asap.

    I also sent an email to Barb’s business address, hoping that someone is checking those emails.

    And to back it up – I also sent an email to the hospital with the same request to pass it along to Barb’s family.

    Now, we just have to sit and wait. Have I mentioned that I HATE waiting?

  24. Siber-H
    12:23 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Rebecca might have Nana’s phone number. There is a small chance some family member is checking her phone messages

    Here is another not very good idea…someone would be getting Nana’s mail. This would be slow, and a note would have to be worded so that the person getting the mail would open it and read it.

  25. Siber-H
    12:25 pm on October 17th, 2013

    WOO WOO Rose and Amalia…You two have done GOOD!!
    Thank you

  26. Herd of Hounds
    12:28 pm on October 17th, 2013

    This is a start. We need to continue. Creature care???? Does anyone need help?
    Rose check SDD as mom is worrit!

  27. Macy the min-pin
    12:29 pm on October 17th, 2013

    I left a message on FB for I think it is a niece, asking her to get back to me also. Plunderers don’t give up!

  28. Rose
    12:36 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Sharon, checked and responded.

  29. Siber-H
    12:38 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Macy, Good girl. As you said, We won’t give up.

  30. Herd of Hounds
    12:39 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Rose, TY

  31. dawson
    12:40 pm on October 17th, 2013

    I have a phone number for Nana.
    I am too upset to talk right now.
    If someone wants to call I will email her number to you.

  32. Tupper's Mama
    12:42 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Dawson – we will be happy to call

  33. staff
    12:43 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Thank you to everyone who is trying to get in touch with someone who knows more about Nana. It is so hard not knowing. And waiting. I have gotten good at waiting. I had to wait 5 years once.

    And now for something completely different.

  34. dawson
    12:48 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Tupper’s Mama: I have sent the phone number to the firehawkstudio.

  35. SnowBella
    12:51 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Like Dawson, I am very upset, but suggest a prayer offering at PST (prayer standard time).

  36. Tupper's Mama
    12:54 pm on October 17th, 2013

    I have tried calling but the phone goes to voicemail. I will try again at various times.
    Prayers sound like a good thing.

  37. Herd of Hounds
    12:56 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Staff: Mom wants BED,BATHTUB,SLIDE,SOUTHERN BOOK NOOK. And with that she could be SOOOO content 🙂

    Dawson and T&G’s Mama: TY for your efforts. T&G’s Mama, Our mom is so new she doesn’t have much of this stuff. If you’d like back-up SDD her with anything you’s trust her with 🙂 🙁

  38. O'Howlers' Mom
    12:59 pm on October 17th, 2013

    I did FB message Scott as well.

  39. Rose
    1:05 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Okay. I just called the hospital back. The doctor and the critical care nurse are in with Nana now. I will try calling back in a few minutes.

    I know Bear is with her, but I’m worrit about my dear friend Masquers. sniff

  40. O'Howlers' Mom
    1:07 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Scott just called me. Nana is still on life support, but improving.
    They still do not know what happened, but they think it had to do with her diabetes meds, and her possibly not eating for one or two days. I told him we are all praying, and planning a group prayer tonight. He is appreciative.

  41. Herd of Hounds
    1:11 pm on October 17th, 2013

    OH MOM: Does he need anything one of us can come up with? (i.e. backup, a hand???) Since you have spoken with him let us know.

  42. Siber-H
    1:13 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Thank you Howler’s Mom. It is close to a miracle that we got a reply from Scott so soon. We pray Nana keeps improving and we will be here for the prayer tonight.

    Rose, I am sure Masquers is being looked after and thank you for the phone calls you are making.

  43. Herd of Hounds
    1:17 pm on October 17th, 2013

    HATE not being close by, even if we were we couldn’t do more. LOVE, PAWRAYERS, THOUGHTS heading for the northwest from TN. Wish we could do more!

  44. Rose
    1:22 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Siber-H: We on this blog are family. Caring about each other is what we do.

  45. Tupper's Mama
    1:29 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Howlers Mom – thank dog and thank you for letting us know. We knew she hadn’t been eating due to a stomach thing, and for diabetics, that is dangerous.

    Prayers will be at PST

  46. SnowBella
    1:32 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Nana told me last week that BSD always took care of Masquers so I have no doubt that the same is true now.

  47. O'Howlers' Mom
    1:34 pm on October 17th, 2013

    I am sorry that I didn’t probably ask as many questions as i should have. I too was very surprised he called so fast. He sounded very upset, so I didn’t push it. Importantly, he now has my number and promised to give updates. Also, i have his number, thank Dog.

  48. Herd of Hounds
    1:43 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Thank dog for a great network of friends 🙂 Ya’ll are better than family.

  49. Rose
    1:58 pm on October 17th, 2013

    O’Howlers Mom: Thank you, and thank you for updating us.

  50. Herd of Hounds
    2:09 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Now, other than prawrayer, what else can we do? Know the paw rayers will happen. What else can we do? Am open to ideas.

  51. BooBear's Mom
    2:11 pm on October 17th, 2013

    I just checked in for the first time today. Poor Nana! Thank goodness her son found her and got her to the hospital. Those who are able to, please keep checking on her and letting us know what is going on. Prayers going to Washington State from southeast Texas.

    Melanie, I am also thinking about you. Good thoughts and prayers coming your way too.

  52. BooBear's Mom
    2:25 pm on October 17th, 2013

    I’m going to order a balloon bouquet and put that it is from all of us. PLEASE no one send me money. I am happy to do this and happy to put that it is from the Plunderers! I’ll post when I get it ordered and hopefully sent!

  53. Wookie's and Teddy's Dad
    2:36 pm on October 17th, 2013

    We are praying very hard here for Barb/Nana as well from here in Vermont. Thanks to everyone who has gotten more information and to BooBear’s mom for her generosity.

  54. O'Howlers' Mom
    2:39 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Thank you, BooBear. I was toying with each of us sending a different balloon, so that they would just keep coming, but that seemed like a lot to ask of you all.

  55. BooBear's Mom
    2:53 pm on October 17th, 2013

    I just got off the phone with a very nice florist located 4 miles from the hospital. She is putting a nice mylar balloon arrangement together and will deliver it today. I put that it was from “her friends at Chet the Dog.” That seemed weird enough…I was afraid I would never get her to understand “Plunderers.” I wish I was as good with words as Amalia or Rebecca so that the card could have been super special, but this will have to do. I’m sure she can receive individual get well cards as well. The hospital website has the address posted.

  56. Rose
    2:57 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Thank you so much, BooBear’s Mom.

  57. Siber-H
    2:59 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Thank you BooBear’s mom. “Your Friend’s at Chet the Dog” is a good choice.

  58. Rose
    3:03 pm on October 17th, 2013

    I just called the hospital again. The woman Maryann is very nice. Nana’s nurse is in with Nana right now. I left my cell phone number with her, so if I hear anything further, I will post on the blog ASAP.

    I was wondering if it might be a good idea to make sure the emergency list is updated, and everyone knows who there emergency person is. I know I don’t remember mine.

  59. O'Howlers' Mom
    3:04 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Thank you very much, BooBear’s mom. The way you signed it is perfect, because that is how I referred to us to her son, Scott.

  60. O'Howlers' Mom
    3:05 pm on October 17th, 2013

    I do not think I have an emergency person.

  61. BooBear's Mom
    3:19 pm on October 17th, 2013

    I don’t have one either, OH’s Mom! We can be each others emergency contacts!

    The florist called me back. She was going to verify that the hospital would accept a large balloon arrangement (I ordered 10 balloons) and they said no. 3 at the most. So she is putting three balloons with a silk arrangement (this is hard for me since I am not a big fan of silk flowers.) However, she assured me that it is a high end quality of silk flowers and that the arrangement is very nice. Still will be delivered today

  62. dawson
    3:22 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Thank all youse doing the calling and posting and sending balloons. Thank dog for Scott, for finding her and for getting back to us so fast with news about Nana.

    Melanie: Smooth sailing on rough seas.

    I do not have an emergency person unless you count Staff and A CattyLibrarian or Turtleman Fred. I could be emergency contact for them

  63. B. Stover
    3:28 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Thank you BooBear’s Mom.

  64. Tupper's Mama
    3:28 pm on October 17th, 2013

    BooBear – there could not have been any more special words than the ones you chose. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.

    We are here at the PET scan place. They just told Melanie that she can’t talk after they inject the radioactive stuff.

    But they didn’t say she couldn’t laugh, so I am planning to tell her every silly story I can think of, just to make her snort.

    Tee hee

  65. Rose
    3:39 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Royal Mum, I am so happy to know you are with Melanie. Thank you.

  66. Herd of Hounds
    4:00 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Keep it up, T&G’s Mama. We need all the laughs we can get today.

  67. Pancho & Lefty
    4:04 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Golinka: Did you tell Melanie the one about the newf, the outlaws and the corgis that walked into an art show?

    BooBear: Thank you for your generosity.

    We here have had a constant prayer in our hearts for our dear Nana.

  68. Rose
    4:11 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Pancho and Lefty: Would love to hear that one!

  69. Pancho & Lefty
    4:21 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Wose: So would we. We forgot the punch line.

  70. Macy the min-pin
    4:30 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Melanie, you kind of got pushed to the back burner today, but we are all thinking good thoughts for you. No spitting radioactive snorts at Amalia.

  71. dawson
    4:31 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Outlaws: Now that’s funny!

  72. Herd of Hounds
    5:38 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Pancho & Lefty: Y a’ll crack us up! We wish we could get away with half the schtuff ya’ll do. Y a’ll are our heroes!

  73. staff
    6:09 pm on October 17th, 2013

    I have Barb&Maggie’s emergency contact info. I always figured Dawson and I would work for each other.

    BooBear thanks for doing the balloons.

    I bet HOH does not have an emergency contact person either because she is a more recent plunderer. I am willing to be that for her also.

  74. Tupper's Mama
    6:12 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Checking in to let you know that Melanie is all done. She said it wasn’t all that bad – not like being stuck in an MRI tube or having dye that makes you ill. She just has a faint (radioactive) glow about her.

    Kind of like her own personal Northern Lights.

    So, a Newf, some Outlaws and two Corgis walked into an art show.

    “Wait a minute! ART show, we thought they said ARF show”

  75. Wose
    6:14 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Pancho & Lefty: Youse guys always make me laugh so hard, I snort Diet Coke through my nose.

  76. Wose
    6:16 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Royal Mum, I have just snorted more Diet Coke through my nose. I am relieved to hear that Melanie did well.

  77. Wose
    6:18 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Sage is up top!

  78. Pancho & Lefty
    6:25 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Golinka: Now we remember the punch line. Arf! We are glad to hear Melanie is done with her scan. Belle Starr says if you can’t sparkle you should at least glow.

    HOH: We don’t get away with half the stuff we would like.

    Our lady is on the road for the next two days. She spoke with the Giant a bit ago. He said he will join in tonight’s prayer offering for Nana.

  79. O'Howlers

    The ‘rents are home, and we have eaten. Now Pop has discovered a busted pipe. In the immortal words of Roseanne Roseannadanna, “If it’s not one thing, it’s another. It’s always something.”

  80. Siber-H
    6:47 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Tupper’s Mom, Melanie has been in our thoughts so thanks for the update. It is good to hear that this wasn’t too hard on her.

    6:56 pm on October 17th, 2013

    We just now remembered to watch the video Rose posted. That is a tearjerker, but a nice one. Thanks, Rose.

  83. Herd of Hounds
    7:13 pm on October 17th, 2013

    OK here we go…May be a newbie but, Melanie has lots of my info, Stinky Mama has almost everything except my Social Security #. OH has some info for me AND Staff has my “Old Farts” Contact, share this. If anything happens here, I have trained the O.F to let ya’ll know.

  84. Herd of Hounds
    7:14 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Golinka: let us know when you get Melanie back home,

  85. Tupper's Mama
    7:45 pm on October 17th, 2013

    HOH – Melanie is back home.

    We have a proposal for all of you. We did set up an emergentree quite a while ago. However, some of our members have changed since then – Kirby and MollieABP and Jasper for example.

    How about if each one of us sends an email from your own email account to our joint dishlickers account. In that email simply list your name, your phone number and, most importantly, an emergency contact person from your own world and their phone number.
    This way, should someone fall off the grid, we don’t have to scramble to find out who their Chet contact person is, and is with the case of Nana, if something should happen to one of us, we would know who would be in that person’s circle of knowledge.

    If you all think this is a good idea, I would suggest that you title the email you send to dishlickers as “Emergency Contact for ****”. In a few days, someone can go into dishlickers and group all those emails into a folder titled “Emergency Contacts”.

    This was a very scary day, and thanks to Facebook, and a lot of poking and prying, we were able to find out about our Nana, but personally, I could do without having another frightening episode like this.

    Remember – we first came up with the emergentree idea after that terrible time Siber’s Mom fell ill, and we couldn’t find her. We realized that many of us could just disappear without a trace. We think it’s time to update our strategy. You are all too dear to us to lose contact.

  86. Wose
    7:48 pm on October 17th, 2013

    O’ Howlers: I used a bunch of Kleenix when I watched that video, but it really is a nice tribute.

    7:52 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Nana!….What the hell happened to Nana?…snort!sob!…Is she going to be okay? How come no one called me on my little Go-Phone? Oh wait, I had it turned off all day…grump!

    Contacts!….I think Golinka’s idea is “Ok”, but we have to be VERY VERY VERY careful about WHO we give out the dishlickers password to…sniff!…That would be a lot of personal information getting into the wrong paws if you gave some stranger the way into our email account…grunt!

  88. Wose
    7:53 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Royal Mum: Splendid idea!

  89. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:54 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Folder!…I don’t think the folder should be named anything like Contacts…sniff!…It should be obscure and only something we would know holds our info…grunt!

  90. Wose
    7:55 pm on October 17th, 2013

    RIO! I tried to contact you. I guess your little Go-phone was off, and you weren’t by your computer.

  91. Melanizzzzzzzzz
    7:55 pm on October 17th, 2013

    Hello all (and also to Nana Barbara)

    Happy to see you all are on top of things. I love the idea of the balloons.
    I will be back tommorrow. A tad tired today. snicker

    Pancho &Lefty: at least it wasn’t ‘a Newf, some Outlaws and two PUGS’ that walked into an art show.

    Thinking of everyone today and wishing them good health. Thanks for those who persevered to make contact. Nana will be so touched– and her son knows her blog friends care.

    we will be posting a prayer in just a minute, but we want to tell you that it comes from a beautiful moment we had years ago when my mother was very ill. We had asked people from around the country to join in prayer for her, and when she awoke from her coma, she told us that she had dreamed of being held aloft by many, many caring hands. They kept her safe, and guided her back to us. When it came time to write this prayer, that was the image that kept coming back to us.
    We think it is a message we were meant to share.

    Creator – We watch the evening come and as the sky grows dark, we think you for the gifts you have given us. We look into the night sky and understand how small each one of us is in your universe, and yet, we each know that love that connects us all.
    Creator – when we are alone or frightened, we reach out to touch another hand. When we seek to give or receive comfort, we reach for the hand near us. It doesn’t matter what kind of hand that is. In our circle, there are big and little hands, hands that grow seeds in the soil, hands that stitch, or teach, or paint or work. But in these times of worry, all those hands connect together in this family of friends.
    Tonight, we reach across the nighttime sky to give the strength of our hands to Barb. We link all of our hands together to hold her up, to support her and cradle her in our caring. Creator, we ask you to also hold Barb gently in your hands, and let her feel all of us with her, around her, encouraging her. Although she may be in a dreaming world, let her know that she is loved.
    Creator – this family has been joined together with a purpose. Let the power of the love we share be medicine to all who need it. We ask you to bring peace and healing to Barb, Melanie, Rebecca and Judith and all those whose bodies have been struggling. We ask you to bring lightness and support to Gracie and Dima and Tenzing and all the four legged ones who hold our hearts. Please let the stars of this sky sing good medicine songs to make bodies strong, to bring spirits up and banish the fears of the dark.
    Creator, let our hands reach out of the dark to hold each other, and open our hearts to hearing the love and concern that each one of us has for all the others. Please know that we all have a lighter load because of all the hands that are sharing it.
    Creator –Tonight as we watch the evening come and the sky grow dark, we think you for the gifts you have given us. We look into the night sky and understand how small each one of us is in your universe, and yet, we each know that love that connects us all.

    Oh boy, Oh boy, Oh boy! You’ll all never ever guess what I did today. I met some Icelandic ponies on Mt Tom. We had already walked a llong way so I was a little tired and maybe I was resting just a little bit. When suddenly there were 3 ginormous, huge, very,very, very large animals right in front of me. Was I scared? Not at all. The nice ladies on top of the animals said to Mommy that I could meet the ponies and I DID!!! They had really soft noses and they weren’t scared of me at all on account of I sat first like Mommy told me. And they could be my friends. But they didn’t want to jump and play but they were still real nice. We walked more than5 miles up to th very top of the mountain daddy says these arn’t real mountains like in his home state but Mommy says they are and I always believe Mommy. Yawn. Need to go nighty night now. Love to all my friends on the blog. Teddy RR
