In The News

“Mindy McCready shot herself,” Spence says.

“Sad news,” says Admin. “I liked her music.”

“She took her dog with her.”

“Why?”

“And the dog’s name doesn’t appear in any of the news reports I’ve seen.”

“Why not?”

    Yes, as they said, another level of sadness to the story. It was her boyfriend’s dog. We looked but couldn’t find a name or picture.

    Good(?) Morning, Barb & Maggie and All. Mom is sick again, so she is staying home. We got caught up this morning. The idea of a Plunderer group with its own name is a good one. What about The Waiting Ones? Because we all promised to wait for each other until our family is reunited at the bridge. Not to say we won’t be having plenty of fun while waiting…

    Good morning! Sad day yesterday. Not sure of a name for those who have crossed the bridge. Nothing yet has fit. Maybe we just prefer to think of them individually. Or the “just right” name hasn’t been thought of yet.

    Rio, mom has been watching “The Following”. Excellent show but very scary. She has watched the 1st 3 episodes and the suspense doesn’t let up. Some very surprising twists and turns. She has the next 2 episodes DVR’d. Tell your friend to keep watching.

    It’s Copernicus’ birthday today. The Google doodle is really neat.

    It’s also Jasper’s mom’s birthday.

    Body of Proof is back, tonight at 10PM. It’s also on On Demand.

    Why was Body of Proff off the air for awhile? Was it just a seasonal break?

    Yes, Wolfie, Mindy M. left behind two boys. The younger one who is less than a year old will not even remember her. She evidently fought a lot of deamons. They should never have let her out of rehab after just a few hours.

    Never heard of Mindy Mc. May she rest in peace. She had big problems to murder the dog and leave her children orphans. Sheesh, Spence, can’t you find some happy news?

    Happy Birthday going out to the middle of the mitten.

    Rose: One week? How exciting! Time to pack. You are such a luck, as we used to say when I was young.

    Hacking: A couple days ago I was having a real bad hair day so I took the scissors and hacked off the offending stick-er out-ers. They were all on the right side. Yesterday the left side did the sticking out all over thing and they got hacked too. Also, I stopped at the library and got a book on how to cut your own hair. Heh. Lucky it’s hat season.

    It is a good thing the authorities took Mindy Mc’s children away from her and put them in foster care. Otherwise, they might be dead along with the dog. We never cared for the two songs she had that were hits on the charts.

    On a much happier note…Happy Birthday to Jasper’s Mom!

    Wose, The first item you should pack is the camera.

    Good day to stay in and read a book. Just got The Secret Keeper from the library. This is Kate Morton’s fourth book, I believe. Seemds to be starting off better the The House at Riverton. Did enjoy that one but it was slow going.

    Wonder how Melanie and Zoe are doing this morning.

  23. Barb & Maggie
    12:21 pm on February 19th, 2013

    BSD, Mindy M. shot her boyfriend’s dog, we think, because she didn’t want it to be left behind. The boyfriend killed himself on her front prock a couple of weeks ago. She shot herself in the exact same spot. They are still investigating his death, but it is a supposed suicide.

  24. Masquers

    Jasper – tell your Mom HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

    We are looking forward to Body of Proof too. We just watched the season closer from the last time it was on. We hope they are not going to have a recurring “monster under the bed” character like so many of the other shows do. We stopped watching The Mentalist because we got sick and tired of Red John. We know its a device used to get viewers involved, but we find it boring, unrealistic and hackneyed. So there!

    And Spence – for goodness sakes – this is CHETS BLOG – not an obituary column. There has to be other (happier)stuff to talk about.

    Barb&Magpie: It is a Very Sad Story all around.

    We have not read any of Kate Morton’s books. When you mentioned her it reminded us of Kate Atkinson the English writer we love.

  28. Barb & Maggie
    12:38 pm on February 19th, 2013

    We love Kate Atkinson’s books. I think we have read 2. Has she written a new one lately?

    Agree on the Red John issue. We thought it would be over after the big shoot-out scene in the food court, but then in the next season he was back. We no longer watch the Mentalist either.

  29. OleyHowlers

    Mom got her hair cut on Friday. The hairdresser spun mom around in the chair, handed her a mirror, and said, in a VERY stern voice:

    “YOU HAVE A BUTT CRACK IN THE BACK OF YOUR HEAD. NOBODY SHOULD EVER BE ALLOWED TO GO THE WORK WEARING A BUTT CRACK!”

    Mom looked, and sure enough, there was sort of a part on her head. The lady grabbed a pair of scissors, trimmed about two hairs, and ‘back combed’ the rest.

    The cost? Including a can of hairspray was $55!

    Double Dawson has the right idea. Sheesh.

    Since we are commenting on this, I don’t mind the obits. I am happy with whatever Spence wants to post. I especially like him remembering the baseball greats. Today’s obit was more about the dog than Mindy Mc.
    I don’t know about Spence, but I certainly could not be clever and entertaining every day with words of wisdom from Chet.

    Fellow Sibers, I am sorry your mom is sick, but am glad she is staying home today.

    Barb&Magpie; Kate Atkinson has a new book that will be out in April called Life After Life.
    Right now we are totally immersed in the wonderful Andy Carpenter Mystery Series by David Rosenfelt. There is a lot of catching up to do before the next book, Unleashed, comes out in July.

    Looks like there will be some cushion-chewing going on at Rio’s house until the little packages are all accounted for.

    1:18 pm on February 19th, 2013

    Kate Atkinson’s next novel, Life After Life, is due out this April.

    I’ve always cut my own hair. The secret is to make sure each section is cut straight.

    Rio: I bet incarcerated people would really appreciate the beauty of your friend’s quilling.

    Spence: I apologise for getting on your case about posting these sad stories. It is not your fault that I cry at the drop of a hat. It seems to be part of my grieving process that I can’t control. I appreciate the forum you give us. I do love it when Chet posts.

  45. Barb & Maggie
    2:09 pm on February 19th, 2013

    We agree with Siber. The obits of famous or almost famous people are fine with us. We are just grateful that Spence has created this forum for us. It is a big commitment. We don’t all like the same things, but we are free to go off in our own directions each day.

    Bear, We have read all 10 Andy Carpenter books and love them.

    I’ve been sick with a sinus infection for a few weeks now. What’s interesting about this is that I didn’t know I was sick. Being gluten-free has made everything different, so after two weeks of this infection that I didn’t know I had, it finally turned into a bacterial infection. Last week I started on an antibiotic but now there’s only minor improvement. I will know better next time what to look for when I might have some minor symptoms.

    Bear Spirit, to answer your question about Alice and Abbie watching the masseuse. I think they were hoping for a massage for themselves and not trying to learn her technique.

    Rio, A package for Dawson came here today. It is from Colorado. It looks to be in perfect condition but you understand I can not open it without permission. Dawson??????

    Mollypop’s Mom: Years ago I lost my voice completely (not good for a teacher!) and my doctor told me about the steam cure. It worked. I suggested it to help you clear up the congestion. I wonder if you need steroids.

    I think that Alice and Abbey should have been given a massage.

  62. dawson
    5:28 pm on February 19th, 2013

    B.Stover: When you say each section should be cut straight, do you mean that each handful of hair should be cut an equal distance from the head?

  68. B. Stover
    6:21 pm on February 19th, 2013

    Dawson: Yes.

  69. B. Stover
    6:24 pm on February 19th, 2013

    Dawson: And the way to do that is to hold each section between two fingers straight up or out and cut in a “straight line.” Does this make sense?

  70. dawson
    6:33 pm on February 19th, 2013

    B.Stover: Got it! The book shows a drawing of a head with all the hair sticking straight out…all the some length. It says to comb, put the comb down and with the same hand, cut the hair. Sounds easy peasy, right?

  71. B. Stover
    6:38 pm on February 19th, 2013

    Dawson: It is easy really. The hair should be wet by the way.

    Also wanted to report a weird weather event here. Early this evening as we were coming back from taking my dad out for a hotdog (one of his favorite treats), it was overcast with extremely dark clouds of a truly ominous nature. But by the time we got home, it had miraculously cleared, with an eerie golden glow in the sky and a spectacular rainbow overhead. Hopefully that will portend some better things to come; we certainly could use it.

    The winter sculptor-snow is astonishing ‘my’ eyes.

    Wow this is amazing. You two do great work together. The only thing is neither the poetry or the art work is signed. Sob. Never mind, Rio’s friend put that information on the back.

  77. Staff
    7:17 pm on February 19th, 2013

    Rose: I think I already sent you the photo that the poem in the quilling project was based on….yes?

    Thick hair doesn’t really matter. Just cut top level, middle level and then bottom level making sure that each is the same length. (I don’t know if that makes any sense either??)

    Dear Wose. One of my favorite things about living in the country is that in West Fargo North Dakota every few years there is a Pyrotechnics Guild International Convention. Firework addicts from all over the world come and spend the week and EVERY night there is a spectacular fireworks show.
    I get tickets for the entire week. I take tons of photos. One night I got there and the digital camera batteries died after about 10 minutes. Ever since I have had a well charged spare along.

    I came home to the south bound end of a north bound Tenzing sticking out from under the bed. He mentioned something about Staff, fireworks and loving her anyway.

    10:59 pm on February 19th, 2013

    Gah!…Everytime they search a house I have to cover my pug-eyes with my paws….wheeze!….And its a good thing I did too!..yeep!

    Rio: Tenzing says there is room under the bed with him if you need a good hidey-hole. I don’t have the heart to tell him that just because his head is under the bed doesn’t mean all of him is hidden.

  109. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:14 pm on February 19th, 2013

    Hidey!…Hole! Here I come!…snort!…Move your big butt over Tenzing….grunt!

    Dear Tenzig, I expect about 4 hours of loud banging for a week would annoy you. heh. There are some people in North Fargo that it annoys too. That and the fact that there is a traffic jam every night around that area of town. Sheesh. It takes us about 1/2 hour just to get out of the parking lot.

    Staff: I love you, but I don’t love the pow, poppity-pop, pop, pop of the fireworks. Could you ask them to turn the volume down? Maybe then, they wouldn’t bother me so much.

    Re: the mention of Mindy shooting her boyfriend’s dog before killing herself (a fact that is odd enough to be newsworthy):
    “Dr. John Draper, the Director of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, agrees that such an act had nothing to do with the pet’s behavior.
    “One thing is for sure is that she was obviously feeling very close to her pet and that this wasn’t an act of hostility with her pet,” …It was probably more a statement of her close identification with her pet… I think what is often seen in these kinds of murder suicides is not just so much taking them with me as wanting to end the suffering for anybody or anything that you love that might suffer.” Dr. Draper explains that while there’s no data as to how frequently people who commit suicide kill their pets along with them, he often hears that pets are actually a reason many choose to keep living.”

    Happy B-day, Jazzy’s mom!

    Royals, mom used to have two Lhasas,, but the only place that their hair got really long was on their pantaloons. Mom was always trying to trim them up. Dad would yell “run for it, doggies” when mom got out the scissors. Later, dad would tell them that they looked like they were attacked by a weed wacker.

    Rio! It came today and there were no goat teeth anywhere to be see!

    It is a work of beauty and so is the poem. Sigh. Bliss.
