Kermit Ruffins (More)

“Any favorite moment with Kermit Ruffins?” says Admin.

“I liked,” says Spence,  “when after a number he’d take one step back, down some more beer – a good year for Bud, as he said – then step up to the microphone and say, ‘And we’re back.’ Like a TV host just returning from a commercial break.”

“Guess you had to be there.”

“But we were.”

Welcome Joey, Lucy and dialogue-loving Ian.

    Hmmmmm.
    I’m a tad bit jealous of those who laze around listening to great live music in intimate bar settings. Only because it’s my weekend to work.

    Dawson: Sorry about that. This is actually Mom’s weekend off, but Dad has a lacrosse tournament in Savannah today. He left early this morning and won’t be home until midnight or so — long day for him riding herd on a bunch of delinquents lacrosse players. This is Dad’s first year coaching lacrosse, luckily he’s only the assistant. He never played the sport, just watched a few games last year. He asked Mom if the library had Lacrosse for Dummies!

    I think I’m with Admin on this one also.

    Kirby: What is Lacrosse?

    Good morning all.

    Lacrosse is just starting to make an appearance around our neck of the woods. For a long time, that foreign sport, soccer, took up all the young families time. Then hockey showed up, Sunday school teachers were late because of an early game for Sonny. Now Lacrosse. Eh, I think I will take a good brisk nap.

    Good one Kirby’s dad.

    About Bejeweled: there are three basic games and one that you can play against someone on the Internet. So Classic you play until there are no more moves. Action plays against a timer that restarts with each new level. Endless just never ends. The scoring is different in each game. They are all relaxing and addicting.

    Dawson, mom only has one eye open, she thought you were saying in your post that lazing around in bars was your weekend work. heh heh

    Bee: I’ve never actually been to a lacrosse game. Maybe if they have a home game Mom will take me. All I know is it involves 10 players on each team running around with sticks with nets on the end. They carry the ball in the net — Dad says it’s a hard ball a little bigger than a baseball. Then they flick the stick toward another player and the ball flies out and the other player catches it in his net. The players all run around madly flinging the ball to each other — without letting someone on the other team get it! — until someone gets to the other side and flings it into the goal. I think. Mom and Dad say they never played that game when they were growing up in Iowa!!!

    My Mom played varsity Lacrosse in college so many years ago. It was a new sport then. Now we have a professional team, the Buffalo Bandits. Where have you guys been?

  9. Kirby T. Penworthy
    10:17 am on February 26th, 2011

    Sam: I’ve been right here, but they don’t let dogs play lacrosse! And when Mom and Dad lived in New York my boy and girl were too young to play, so Mom and Dad have never had any exposure to it, until Dad’s friend started coaching the lacrosse team at his school and Dad started staying after school to watch the games sometimes. Mom still hasn’t seen one. She thought about going with Dad today, but in the end riding on a school bus more than 3 hours each way, plus hanging around a bug-infested field all day, then stopping at McDonald’s on the way home just didn’t sound so appealing! She says she’s going to wait for the home game!

  10. B.Stover
    10:27 am on February 26th, 2011

    Thanks for the explanation Kirby. I hope they don’t start broadcasting Lacrosse. (Sorry.)

    Mollypop: I forgot to say yesterday that I think the 11 million Bookworm score might be a record.

    10:29 am on February 26th, 2011

    Lacross is Canada’s national sport. That’s all I know on the subject.
    Now I’m gonna be late. It’s the dog’s fault.

  12. Kirby T. Penworthy
    10:32 am on February 26th, 2011

    Bee: Actually, they do! You just haven’t been watching the right channel. I’ve come across it a time or two when I’ve been able to get ahold of the remote (when Dad’s out of the room, in other words) so that’s why I know what little I know about the sport. But it’s such a confusing game if you don’t know the rules, so I’ve never watched more than a few minutes of it!

  13. Kirby T. Penworthy
    10:32 am on February 26th, 2011

    Dawson: Do we need to write you an excuse for work?

    For all of you who are new to this sport.

  15. Kirby T. Penworthy
    10:51 am on February 26th, 2011

    Sam: How different is that from the high school game my Dad’s team plays? I know Dad said there are 10 players on the team. Is that nine players plus the goalie? (Is that the right term?) Your website said five players plus the goalie — is that because it’s an indoor game?

  16. Kirby T. Penworthy
    10:52 am on February 26th, 2011

    I know there are 10 players because the head coach had warm-up shirts made for the team that say, “10>1” and the boys didn’t get it. The coaches has to explain what it meant. Way for those math lessons to stick guys!

  17. Sam
    11:00 am on February 26th, 2011

    Kirby, yes that is one of the differences between indoor and outdoor games. Indoor is way too rough for me!

    THIS is what it means to get all poodled up!

  19. Kirby T. Penworthy
    11:06 am on February 26th, 2011

    OMG!

  20. Kirby T. Penworthy
    11:07 am on February 26th, 2011

    And you guys think I look funny!

  21. Mollie (a black poodle)
    11:36 am on February 26th, 2011

    Kirby is right…OMG, that is embrassing for poodles everywhere. It is not a happy dog. Not the dog’s fault you know.

  22. Melanie
    11:41 am on February 26th, 2011

    I’m sorry, but that is NOT what it means to get “poodled up”. That is what people do to totally embarrass their poodles.

    I stay with our definition of “poodled up” as fierce.

  23. Melanie
    11:46 am on February 26th, 2011

    We have had visitors today. Human ones this time. First was Bill, our painter and plaster “guy”.

    We are having the Master bedroom, the hallway and my workroom ceilings redone. After 199 years they are beginning to sag. I’m not THAT old and I’m sagging already.
    He’s starting that next week. This means I will be out of the house and will be commenting late in the day. Plaster dust and paint fumes!

    Now the Nephews are here. They are protecting the trees! More fencing is going up.

    Busy, busy day!

  24. Melanie
    11:52 am on February 26th, 2011

    Also about the phone tree. You guys know how to get in touch with me by email. I can also reach T & G’s mom by phone and she can get in touch with me.

    I do have some emails and addresses and some of you guys have mine. Let me know what you want to do.

  25. Kirby T. Penworthy
    11:56 am on February 26th, 2011

    Melanie: I wish we lived closer so you could send your plaster guy here! Our ceilings are fine — remember the beaded board stuff — but our dining room walls are still destroyed where Dad pulled the wallpaper off. Mom would love to get a plaster guy in to take care of it, but Dad keeps insisting that he can do it. Mom’s starting to think they need to set a deadline — if it’s not done 10 years from now she’s getting a plaster guy. Period. (My girl was in middle school when he started the project, and now she’s in her seventh year of college! I’m afraid my humans aren’t real good about doing things in a timely manner!!!)

  26. Melanie
    12:11 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Laughing here Kirby!

    Siber-H: This is what I thought you were doing . . . http://www.furrondy.net

  27. Macy the Min-Pin
    12:14 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Melanie, yes you have our e-mail address, so can we count on you to be our contact?
    I always thought that getting poodled up mean getting in a tizzy. That is how we have been using it around here. Some gets upset about something we say “Don’t go getting all poodled up over it”. We really like the phrase, and we know that “our” poodles ARE fierce. Sorry if we embarrassed you guys.

  28. Barb & Maggie
    12:15 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Kirby, Tell your mom to hire a plaster guy as a “gift” for Father’s Day! How can he say no to such a lovey gesture?

    BTW that poodle does NOT look happy. Wow, and I complain about getting my nails cut!

  29. Melanie
    12:51 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Oh, Dog, I’m in moderation since 12:11 and didn’t notice. Let me try again.

    Kirby T: Laughing here.

    Macy: I would be Min-Pin Proud to be your contact.

    Siber-H: This is what I thought you were doing . . .

  30. Melanie
    12:55 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Okay, I’m in moderation for a website. I can sort of see why. But it’s for a sled dog race. Let me try to out wit it.

    First you’d do that world wide web thing then a period. Next you would put in lower case the word for the coats on dogs then with no space the word rondy. Then another period with the word “net” after that.

    Jeez, I’m not sure I could figure that one out, but anything for Siber-H!

  31. B.Stover
    1:08 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Men in uniform; incomprehensible rules; hours with too much roughing about…..Lacrosse. And they have to call themselfes “Bandits” just because it alliterates with Buffalo. I hope the sport doesn’t become popular on this blog.

    Kirby: B&M’s idea is excellent. Get a plaster guy.

  32. B.Stover
    1:11 pm on February 26th, 2011

    At first glance I thought that poodle was a stuffed animal. There should be a law.

    I thought emergency contact meant giving someone on the blog an email address of relative or friend to find out what is up if someone disappears without notice.

  33. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:20 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Lacross!… We have a pro team here called The Mammoth….snort!…Lacross has always been around as long as she and I have been alive…..grunt!…She used to play in highschool. It involved a lot of running and flinging….chorkel!

    Book!… We finished another one of the Charming Mr. Abrahams books this morning….snort!snort!….What a guy, what a writer!….golly!… Next we are starting on some kids books for a break in the action….sniff!

  34. Melanie
    1:31 pm on February 26th, 2011

    B.Stover that might be a good idea.

    I was wondering where Riö was.

    Lacross is big in the private schools up here in the North East. My guys were not in private schools. One of our neighbors guys does all the sports available. He is going to college next year on a Lacross scholarship.

    I was not one for sports. My high school women’s basketball team was excited about my height when we moved south. Then the coach realized that my hand / eye corodination is nil. Snicker. Softball? Furgetaboutit. I ended up teaching my guys how to throw (or not throw) the basketball, baseball and football.

    If I could get my brain out of the way, I could do it. Focusing on the guys, I was great. Then my brain would say “No, do it this way.” and the ball would go backwards over my head.

    I was good at horseback riding though.

  35. Barb & Maggie
    1:38 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Bee is right. We need to give an alternate phone # or email address for emergencies. If something happened to us and you just emailed, you still wouldn’t know if there was a problem. We would be happy to send a phone # to Melanie if she wants. Problably would send # of Kelly, the Newfie girl, that way she could chat her up about her dogs at the same time!

  36. Siber-H
    1:58 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Just reporting in…I told mom that I must. She is slowly getting better, but she is not a happy camper over being sick.

    That is what I wish I were doing Melanie, instead I’ve been enlisted to be a nursemaid. I’m being a good boy.

    What they did to that poodle is terrible, and I bet that is the groomer than did it standing right beside the poor dog. He should be demoted to picking up dog poop.

  37. B.Stover
    2:26 pm on February 26th, 2011

    SH: LOL! I agree with the demotion. Hope your mom starts perking up.

  38. B.Stover
    2:27 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Melanie: What kind of horseback riding did you do? I did both English and Western. Fun! (No one will believe this but I was very athletic…besides swimming…when younger. Waaaaaayyyy younger.)

  39. Melanie
    2:41 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Yes, I understand that younger bit . . .

    English was my thing, or bareback. I had a horse for two years (he was an Appaloosa). A sweet natured guy especially with children. But put an adult on his back, that didn’t know how to ride, and he went straight to the barn!

  40. Barb & Maggie
    2:42 pm on February 26th, 2011

    We were watching a movie, on Hallmark I think, and it was supposd to be in Texas. Everyone was dressed in Western garb, with cowboy hats, Quarter horses, the whole 9 yards. Then they showed of scene of everyone riding and the female lead was using an English saddle. We didn’t think that would happen. Why don’t these people pay attention to detail?

  41. Barb & Maggie
    2:44 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Melanie, We called that “barn sour”.

    Hello everyone – finally after a crazy morning Mama is home.
    As far as the emergency contact stuff, Melanie does indeed have our Mama’s number – she always has….

    Now, for the really, really important stuff. Lacrosse is a Native American game in origin. And the Tuscarora Indians of upper New York state still make the very best Lacrosse sticks – and can beat the tar out of almost any team.
    The original Native name for lacrosse was “little brother of war” among some of the Northeastern Nations. The game was actually used to settle territorial disputes or other “legal” issues between tribes.
    It is still a very active part of Iroquois culture, and players are prepared for matches by holy men, and adhere to strict cultural guidlines.
    One of the Iroquois Federation teams is ranked 4th in the world, although a dispute about their tribally issued passports almost kept them out of the games.

    http://www.nativelegalupdate.com/2010/07/articles/us-rules-may-keep-iroquois-team-out-of-world-lacrosse-championship/

    Thats all for today’s lesson – maybe next time we can talk about another Native American game called FireBall – still played annually by the Wampanoags and other east coast tribes.

  43. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:34 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Emergency!…. Yes, what I meant about the Emergency Contact Tree thing would be something like this…snort!….We each pick 2 plunderers to hold onto our emergency contact name/number/email address. This would be in case someone drops out of sight for over a week or so with no warning at all…grunt!… Just giving each other our email address would do nothing as we all learned from the SiberH X-File episode….wheeze!…So if you pick someone that you want to have this info and you do not have their email address, please contact Melanie. I’m pretty sure she has everyone’s email address because of Dan’s gift to us….snort!…I think having two plunderers with your info is good because what if you both go missing at the same time. Chances are 3 plunderers won’t all be sucked up by aliens in the same week….gruffle!

  44. Melanie
    3:48 pm on February 26th, 2011

    I don’t have LizF’s.

    I can’t wait for Fireball. I can see that what ever it is my guys will want to play it.

  45. B.Stover
    4:29 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Melanie: What is fireball?

    Okay…I have the email addresses of Melanie, Mollypop and Rio. I don’t want Melanie to get overwhelmed since she has most of our contact info. So, Rio and Mollypop could I send my emergency contact to each of you? Just remembered that I have Wolfie’s email also.

  46. B.Stover
    4:31 pm on February 26th, 2011

    I believe that Liz’s email is on her blog. Mine probably is also.

  47. Basil and Sage
    4:54 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Macy MinPin – we know that in an emergency Melanie and Zoe and the Raven can always find us cuz of Mama and those blasted corgis.
    But we want to be on someone’s emergency contact list by ourselves. You, dear, funny and sassy little Macy are our favorite co-conspirator in the Harrassment of Pugs department. Wanna be an emergency team?

  48. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:02 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Stover!…Yes, that would be fine. I’ll give it to someone here who will know what to do with it….heh!

  49. Barb & Maggie
    5:04 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Melanie and Staff already have Barb’s name, email and street address. I will send them each, via the secret decoder thingy, Kelly’s phone # and email. If I/we every disappear for more than 3 days withou notice, please check on us!

  50. Barb & Maggie
    5:07 pm on February 26th, 2011

    T & G, We loved hearing all about Lacrosse and the Native American background. That was very interesting, and Bee, that post is where Fireballl is mentioned.

  51. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:01 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Gone!…Someones got to go get her head examined!…snort!.. And get a haircut…sniff!

  52. Melanie
    6:03 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Perhaps at the end of this, someone could write it down?

    Dan’s home made pizza tonight!

  53. B.Stover
    6:05 pm on February 26th, 2011

    T&G: That was interesting. And thank you B&M. I forgot about the fireball reference.

    6:14 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Rio: I emailed my emergency contact info to you.

    Herbs, I would be honored to harrass a pug be on your emergentree. Send your info to fullofspam@hotmail.com. Mom never uses this mail except for things that she doesn’t want to mess with, so she doesn’t care who has it. She will check it for news from you however. It seems to me that she should just let me have it if she is not going to use it.

    Since everyone “loved” the poodle so much, equal opportunity humiliation, with apologies to Mr. h.

  61. Siber-H
    6:57 pm on February 26th, 2011

    I have my own X-Files episode now. I like Rio’s description. As long as all of you know it was not my fault. I didn’t get my emails from all my friends here on the blog nor two from the Iditarod because SHE did not turn on the computer. I hope she learned a leson from all this.

  62. Macy the Min-Pin

    7:12 pm on February 26th, 2011

    I agree. Mom left this afternoon to do errands, so I had to wait for her to come back and turn on the computer. Where’s one of those “easy” buttons when you need it???

  64. Melanie
    7:39 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Okay, so right now I’m expecting information from Barb and MagPie. Right?
    T & G & B & S’s mom has my number. Snicker

    I’m I sending things to people? What’s happening? I have no brain . . .

    The scarecrow . . .

    Oh, and here’s the Nephews and Zoë looking at the moat around the remaining small maple. Beaver protection!

  65. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:45 pm on February 26th, 2011

    SiberH!…We don’t blame you or your sick gal…snort!… But maybe just a quick email to someone if you don’t want to do the blog thing…grunt!…Just so we don’t worry so…sniff!

    Bad!…Someone was bad and went out for Mexican food with her mother at lunch….snort!…Now her legs are killing her and she is mad at herself for being a weakling. Oh, but how she loves good Mexican food….deerrrrrr!

    Legs-Up!….Kirby we are watching the episode of Worst Cooks where there are only 2 on each team left….snort!… I can’t even guess which two will win this week. They all seem as bad as each other…heh! …(better than someone here though)..snorkel!

  66. Melanie
    7:50 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Whoa, Riö . . . hmmm . . . that definitely sounds like an allergy to me, be it salt or some sort of food or spice.

  67. Macy the Min-Pin
    7:51 pm on February 26th, 2011

    and…..another one. we are bored

  68. Melanie
    8:15 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Those are great Macy. I told Zoë about the beavers down there in Texas. She said she didn’t send them, BUT it gives her a great idea. I sure wouldn’t want to be on her SOL list right now!

    Siber-H: I know I want to do the Iditarod Insider program this year. But now they have two different types. Either the Video on Demand or the GPS tracker. Which are you considering? I know you did the videos last year.

    Hope your mom continues to feel better.

  69. B.Stover
    8:26 pm on February 26th, 2011

  70. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:38 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Party!….Those Pugs look out of control!…heh!… I never get that way. I’m always calm, collected and very patient…sniff!

    Melanie!…She does have a lot of allergies, but food has never been a big part of that…snort!…Except for Iceburg Lettuce and Watermelon, she knows of nothing else that “used to” not bother her….grunt!….She’s feeling very depressed tonight because she thinks she will never get to eat food with a savory taste again….snuffle!

  71. Mollypop
    8:47 pm on February 26th, 2011

  73. Barb & Maggie
    8:57 pm on February 26th, 2011

    We will send Staff and Melanie the contact info tomorrow a.m.

    Watching a movie right now, rental from Netflix called Flipped. Cute. Multigeneral family thing, starting in the 1950’s, so Barb is enjoying the nostalgia.

  74. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:00 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Mollie!…. Hey! Good news! Our Disk One of Justified showed up today so we are finally watching the first episodes of season one!…heh!…We never really knew why Raylan was sent back to Kentucky…snort!…We never knew how he met Boyd Croyder…chorkel!…So that’s what we are catching up on tonight…sniff!

    Stover!…Yes, she can taste things even better since the huge cutback on salt….cough!…She says this is a really good thing all in all….gruffle!…Can you still not taste things, like Staff??….gasp!

  75. B.Stover
    9:06 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Right, I still can’t taste anything. Very irritating.

    OMG!….That is really terrible….sniff!…So you could eat stuff like liver, and Brussels sprouts and cows tongue and it wouldn’t really affect you at all, would it?… gah!…Or all that foreign food that poor Karl is having to endure on his Wonders of the World tour….heh!

    Melanie, I have subscribed to both the Iditarod Insider and the
    GPS tracker for several years now. You know, you “get a deal” by taking both of them. I really feel like I get my money’s worth, but not much else in life gets done during the race. With the gps tracker, watching those little green flags move across the map of Alaska is addictive.

    Everyone!….It’s up to you to pick your Emergency contact trustee…snort!…No one can force you to give out this info. So only do so with the ones you trust…grunt!…C.Harris and Liz will have to decide for themselves if they want or need to participate….sneeze!…It’s Optional.

    Raylan!… Wow! What a guy!…gruff!

    Rio: I wouldn’t eat those things even though I can’t taste them.

    We haven’t heard from CHarris for a while.

    Good night all.

    10:20 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Food!…I know! Just the thought or the texture of some foods is enough to gag me up….grunt!….We are now watching Episode 2 of Justified! We missed that one too, and probably episode 3…heh!…We are finally seeing the beginning of Boyd and his Hillbilly Church. Although, he is in the hospital recovering from Raylan shooting him in the chest and narrowly missing his heart…wheeze!…Raylan still likes Boyd as a friend, hell they grew up together mining coal!…Kentucky!…I know I am talking to myself tonight for some reason. I hope Mollie is awake, she will know what I am blathering on about. Weekends!…gruff!

    B. Stover & Rio: I am here. Another snow storm. Lots of road closures (odd, since we don’t have that many roads to close). Power outages. Cold weather on its way. I am feeling ok…so many “bugs” going around the school I might resort to wearing garlic around my neck for added protection. :)

    Melanie has my email address. My cell sometimes works/sometimes not. I will talk to a friend about communicating with the blog if something unforeseen happens to me. Everyone take care.

    Love and extra pats to Wookie.

    Rio: Justified: Did you miss all of season one or just the first episode? Boyd and his vigilantes was a good episode. I think it was episode 11, season one. Let me know what you think of the ending of next Wed. show as you are one episode behind me.

  86. Macy the Min-Pin
    10:38 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Yes, we forgot to send our daily dose of min-pin lovin’ to Mr. Wookie. Shhllurrrpppp.

  87. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:42 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Mollie!….We missed Ep 1, 2 and probably some others inbetween….snort!…We weren’t true blue fans until Boyd had his Hillbilly church going in the woods…heh!…I think we will watch all of season 1 again because it seems like it;s been forever since we saw the shows…heh!…Plus, she likes looking at Raylan, if I haven’t mentioned that before…sniff!….I myself am more of a Boyd fan…heh!heh!….Fire in the Hole!….Woooo!

    CHarris!…Glad you checked in and please stay warm and safe. You have had it so bad this winter. We here cannot even imagine…grunt!

  88. Barb & Maggie
    10:44 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Macy, we second that. Lots of love and healing to Wookie.

    Good night, sorry to leave you, Rio.

    Rio: Here is a little preview of next Wed. show…Dewey goes into a store and asks for a ski mask, or any kind of mask…very funny…

    We were out listening to live music tonight so I have to go back and read the blog. Macy, I agree Mannie.
    We went to a show of movie music from the 40’s. It was just great. There were a few we hadn’t heard but most were old favorites. Arnie Fogel and two female vocalists and a piano and bass. The piano player didn’t use music. He is obviously a jazz accompanist of great caliber. Loved the music.

    This is a you tube of Arnie from a couple of years ago. It has good audio and tonight sounded like this for 1-1/2 hours. I wore my mask just to be safe.

    MagPie!….I’m fine! Go to bed. Don’t worry bout me. I’ve got Boyd Crowder to watch over…heh!

    Staff!…You listened to that slow music for 1 ½ hours?….cough!… I listened for 3 minutes and I was almost hypnotized into a deep sleep…grunt!…Back to our good show where there’s always something happening …heh!

  94. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:07 pm on February 26th, 2011

    MOLLIE!…Some of those scenes I have seen for the first time tonight and some we have not seen at all…heh!…Is the band the same one they use for their opening theme song?…grunt!….Hillbilly music at its best. Even the Charming Mr. Abrahams would like this music…maybe…snorkel!

  95. AbbietheKitty
    11:17 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Rio,
    I can never ever watch that show. I am a Quaker and that much violence would scar me for years.

  96. AbbietheKitty
    11:18 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Just watching that video was bad enough. Are the other shows you watch this violent?
    Yuck.

  97. Basil and Sage
    11:19 pm on February 26th, 2011

    Well, its about time Mama got around to turning the computer on for us. She’be been in the kitchen making cookies for those dang dawgs all night!

    Macy – love the photos – betcha pugbutt doesn’t even that shot from the Supper Bowl party…giggle
    And to think that Siber is going to try to pretend that isn’t a picture of him getting in touch with his Kitty side…

    Mama said she sent you an email. She thinks she likes Emergentrees even better that Family Trees.
    We sure hope Liz sets up an emergentree contact – it would be pretty hard for someone to make the trip to check in on her if there was a big storm Down Under.
    We just really like hearing about everyone’s home area – we are quite the diverse group, aren’t we?

  98. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:31 pm on February 26th, 2011

    AbbieTheKat!….That video condensed down many shows to show all that seemingly blatant shooting….snort!….There is actually a lot of good story and dialog in-between the time that Raylan has no choice but to kill the bad guy…sniff!…His is always Justified in his shootings (hence the name)….heh! … It’s not as violent as you might think. There is hardly any foul language at all, which we love about this show. It’s about a US Marshall doing his job….snuff! ….But as a Quaker, I’m sure it would be unsettling to you to watch, so go back to your Romance novels…gah!

  99. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:42 pm on February 26th, 2011

    AbbieTheKat!…I mean seriously, do you think Mollie, that black poodle with the whispery voice is all about watching violence?…snort!…Yet she is a big fan of the show. Raylan waits till the very last nano second to act and I worry about him in this way..heh!… Just like the show Breaking Bad some at first glance would say it glorifies drug use, but if you watch the show every week, you would know that is it showing in detail all the pain and suffering that comes from every aspect of drug use and abuse….snort!…This show will be starting its 3rd or 4th season soon….sniff!…Excellent writing, directing and acting all around…woof! …Don’t judge me by a damned video…grunt!

    Wha? ….No response Quaker Kitty?…snort!

  101. AbbietheKitty
    12:12 am on February 27th, 2011

    OK Rio,
    Sheesh, this wasn’t about you being a lover of (limited and selectively justified) violence it was about me, me, me being a weenie about violence. I don’t mind if anyone else watches it. Us kats are just dainty and fastidious kreatures. Right B and S? Delicate and easily injured. That’s us.

    teehee.

  102. Basil and Sage
    12:18 am on February 27th, 2011

    Hey Pug Face – quit pickin on our delicate and fastidious friend!

    Ok Abbie – are you alright little one, after that big ole mean pug yelled at you? Poor dainty kitty.

    Now, lets go shred his baseball toys
    giggle

  103. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:23 am on February 27th, 2011

    Hmmmphf!…Well, you really didn’t write well enough to convey that feeling. It came across as a very judgmental statement not only against me, but Mollie too…grunt!….I will stop promoting the show just so it doesn’t offend you…grunt!

  104. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:27 am on February 27th, 2011

    CRAP!…The dark side again….ugh!…The worst place to be. Luckily we are going to bed very very soon…sniff!

  105. AbbietheKitty
    12:41 am on February 27th, 2011

    OOOooooOOOO
    Now that would be mean. Let me call Alice. She is way better at mean than I.

    (I think B&S scared the puglet away) I have to remember to call on them more often.)

  106. Basil and Sage
    12:46 am on February 27th, 2011

    Abbie – won’t he be surprised when he goes to bed and finds shreds and fluff and thread…
    Maybe the poor little grump needs more fiber in his diet.

  107. AbbietheKitty
    12:49 am on February 27th, 2011

    Dear Rio,
    I did not feel judgmental and am sorry my poor writing came across that way. I would NOT want you to stop telling us about anything you enjoy. After all we are careful not to talk politics so I think we are all muzzled enough. Promote away dear Pug.

    Staff was starting to get interested in Justified because you were talking about the setting in Kentucky. When staff was a little tiny girl they lived in Southern Indiana, across from Louisville, for two years. She still just loves the accent from that area. Dawson still has a little AH (instead of EYE) for the word I. Of course part of that might be from the two years in the state of Virginia also, just before Indiana.
    Maybe.
    We had a friend named Boy. And a neighbor named Virgil which we thought was a very funny name.

  108. Basil and Sage
    12:49 am on February 27th, 2011

    and speaking of beds….yawwwwnnn…it kinda sounds like a good idea to us too.
    Good night all.
    Good night Sweet Rio…you are awfully cute when you get your tail in a twist…but that’s why we all love you
    giggle

  109. AbbietheKitty
    12:50 am on February 27th, 2011

    Mr Staff says Staff has to go to bed so she is shutting down the computer.
    Bye all.
