    Sounds like fun!

    Good morning all.

    Good morning, everyone!
    Welcome to Thursday. Have a trusting one. We trust that Nana and Rebecca get home safely.

    Good morning! I’m back at the airport for another day of travel. Yawn…

    Head bumps to all youse.

    Rebecca: I hope that travel is better for you today.

    Good morning all. Today Barb is preparing for her day of travel tomorrow. Lots to do, since Barb is not a pro at this travel thing.

    B&M: If you’re not a pro at traveling, here are some helpful hints: Go to the bathroom before you board, keep the wiggling to a minimum especially if you’re in a middle seat, and bring snacks—the pretzel and croutons provided by the airline only go so far. Those seem a lot like Luna’s rules for blurring—Mama knows best.

  7. Barb & Maggie
    9:29 am on November 14th, 2013

    Thank you SnowBella for the good advice. Barb is sort of a white knuckle flyer so she got a vanax from our neighbor to take before the flight. She has never taken one before, so she isn’t sure she should take it or not. It is a small dose, so it will probably be OK. Has anyone taken it?

  8. Macy's mom
    9:46 am on November 14th, 2013

    Barb and Karen, you have our number, right? What time is good for you two? We were thinking 10 or 10:30. I am going to look again at the selection of eating establishments that offer brunch. It is supposed to be warm on Saturday. I will get back with you in a bit.

    Good morning to all.

  9. Macy's mom
    9:47 am on November 14th, 2013

    Barb, is it a xanax? I take one every night to relax my brain for sleep. If you haven’t taken it before, it might make you a little drowsy, but that is a good thing on the plane.

  10. Macy's mom
    9:51 am on November 14th, 2013

    grrrrrr, comment in moderation. Take 2

    Barb, is it a x-anax? I take one every night to relax my brain for sleep. If you haven’t taken it before, it might make you a little drowsy, but that is a good thing on the plane.

  11. Barb & Maggie
    10:02 am on November 14th, 2013

    Macy’s Mom, Yes that is what it is. Didn’t know how to spell it.
    And yes, we have the number you emailed. 10-10:30 is good. Doesn’t have to be anywhere fancy – Barb will be eating a big meal Friday night and then again at the reception, so just a nice coffee shop type place is fine. Are there places close enough to walk to?

  12. Macy's mom
    10:31 am on November 14th, 2013

    Good morning all. We are so envious of the Texas Plunder Party. Isn’t this so cool that a series of books and a blog have created such friendships and bonds? We love it, and are looking forward to our own Plunder Party in the spring.

    We talked to Melanie last night – of course she and Zoe were sad, but they knew they were doing the right thing for their girl, and they were at peace with their decision. We hope she will feel up to being back here today, but its ok if she needs more time.

    Barb – if you have flying concerns, by all means take the pill. With the adrenalin rush you have going on, it may not even make you drowsy, but there really is no down side to it.
    (tomorrow night on the national news – “Airplane traffic to Texas was delayed today while flight attendants tried to slow down a woman who was dancing in the aisles and singing ‘Dog On It, I knew too much, and fetched a thief carrying a fistful of collars, and there hangs the tail of sound and furry’. Film at 11)
    tee hee

    Greetings!

    How exciting, another Plunderer Meet and Greet. Take lots of pictures!
    Barb, I would take some ear plugs if you can. I am very sorry I did not take them on my travels last year. Grizz and I use a brand by Flents called Quiet Please. It will help muffle the sounds of all the rude people who are texting and talking when the shouldn’t be. Have a great time. Oh, and Mama Luna and the Pixie’s advice is spot on.

  15. Wose
    10:48 am on November 14th, 2013

    Safe travels to all going to the Texas Plunderer party.

    Rebecca, you are about to give this woman of a certain a major heart attack!!! Please, Please travel safely. Are you sure you couldn’t mush yourself there with the team?

    More advice for the two of you flying commercially today (Barb may be flying even higher) take Airborn as soon as you get off the plane. Have Fun! gah I wish I could go with Rebecca.

    Very good article about the hotel and e-books and a nice photo of Spence, OFA.

    Good morning! We did not yet check outChet’s link.

    Barb! None of us take a pill before flying. Mom just does the white knuckle thing.
    We can’t wait to hear about the Great Texas Plunderer Two-step!

    T&G! You’re killing us!!!!! We will be watching the news for that story!!!

  19. Herd of Hounds
    11:30 am on November 14th, 2013

    White knuckle or not, flying is an adrenaline rush.
    T&G’s Mama: You are cracking us up!

    With apologies to CHobbit, (who doesn’t know good singing when she hears it)
    Sung to the tune of “She’ll Be Comin Round The Mountain”

    Nana’s coming home from rehab, here she comes-purr purr
    Nana’s coming home from rehab, here she comes – meow meow
    Masquers playing a jazzy tune
    Bear is leaping o’re the moon
    Nana’s coming home from rehab, here she comes – purr purr

    Second verse anyone?

  21. Macy's mom

    This will be an exciting weekend. I look forward to hearing from the lucky Plunderer’s who get to meet each other.

    Basil&Sage: Great song. Being tone deaf, I’m sure the kats won’t mind if I sing along.

    Oh we’ll greet her on the blog when she comes arf, arf.

    I’m the one who sent the Hobbit Hotel sign to the Hobbit Hotel. I wasn’t keeping this a secret. I have to give credit to Tyb and Jay for their excellent help in picking out the sign. It came from the shop in Ellicottville where Tyb works called A Touch of Ellicottville. They have signs galore. It’s quite an interesting place.

  28. dawson
    1:26 pm on November 14th, 2013

    Mollypop’s Mom: That sign could not be more perfect. It is a real “score”.

  29. Barb & Maggie
    1:27 pm on November 14th, 2013

    Love the songs. Such talent on this here blog. Also love the Hobbit sign, MPM. We did not know that you were the gift giver.

    Barb and Maggie! Wait! We forgot to tell you about The Girls!

    This week, Helen, the Welsummer, does not want to come out of the coop when we open the door in the morning. We figured that was because of the frigid cold that has arrived here. But this morning, when Pop opened the mandoor to see what she was doing, there was an egg on the floor in the middle of the coop!!!!!

    Turns out it was a wooden egg. We had one fake egg in each of their 6 nest boxes for quite a few weeks. Mom’s theory is that someone removed one today, in order to prepare that nest for an imminent egg!!!!! Hope she is right.

    Hooray for the end of Dima’s treatments and for his healthy appetite.

    Hooray for O’Howler’s imminent egg.

    Hip hip Hooray for Barb’s Big Breakout come Monday.

    NANA IS BUSTING OUT OF REHAB ON MONDAY! I am so thrilled , I may splort!

    AND DIMA! WooooooooHooooooo

  37. Barb & Maggie
    4:06 pm on November 14th, 2013

    Yay for Nana. We are so proud of her!

    And Dima, you go Dude! Keep eating that chow. It will keep you staying strong.

    Oleys, I think your theory on the egg laying is correct. They are definitely checking out the nests. You will probably find that the girls will pick a favorite nest and lay in there most of the time. They also like to lay their egg in a nest that has other eggs in it. Sometimes two will pile into a nest at the same time rather than having their own spot.

    Staff went to see her regular (not kidney) doctor today for her yearly checkup. He came in and said “Who gave blood in your name?” Evidently her bloodwork is so good he thought it was a fake.
    YAY!
    And she doesn’t have to do her blood sugar test everyday from now on. She can do it once a month “or so”.
    YAY!
    We are due a happy day on the blog after our troubles lately and I am happy happy happy to contribute to the cheerfulness.

    Congrats to Dima, Nana and the Plunderers who are meeting and greeting soon. You reminded me to bring my Passport and stamp and ink to Minneapolis so I will have it ready to go to Alaska in February!

    Melanie, Barb and Maggie and Beau. Seed packages went out to you today. Keep them in a dry place till spring.

  39. Dima

    7:45 pm on November 14th, 2013

    AliceMJohnson: Tell Staff that her bloodwork news is wonderful.

    Been getting my rear end kicked at cribbage all afternoon so my losing streak continues. Then went outside and it was pouring rain on top of the 4 inches of snow we got the other day. Very, very carefully walked home.

    BooBear!….What a great idea….snort!…My friend says she is going to take her Whitey Lance mouse pad in to her new busy place…chuffle!….At her old office she did not need a mouse pad, but at the new one she does. What a great reason to look at Whitey all day long…chorkel!

  54. Herd of Hounds

    Rio: what a lovely idea, to welcome Nana home but, are you sure she will be up for it?

  55. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:21 pm on November 14th, 2013

    HOHO!…sniff!…I’m sure she will probably not be up for all of it, but we can all express our thoughts and thankfulness at her coming home…grunt!….Once she is stronger she can read all about the party to Welcome Her Home…chuffle!

  64. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:57 pm on November 14th, 2013

    Macy!…Staff reminded me that I am supposed to ask if there is a way around paying by PayPal if we here order stuff from Rick’s Knife Shop?…snort!…Such as sending a check instead of giving someone’s credit card info…grunt!

  65. Barb & Maggie
    10:24 pm on November 14th, 2013

    Ok – last chorus for today:

    Staff had normal bloodwork, yes she did – boof boof
    Staff had normal bloodwork, yes she did – ruff ruff
    She no longer pricks her finger
    And the germs no longer linger
    Staff had normal bloodwork, yes she did – boof twirl.

    Yup, it’s been a good day around here.

    There was a dinner at the University tonight as a gathering of the Native American students. Mama was invited as an alum, and the Stortlyteller was doing grace. Dinner was excellent, and then there was entertainment by a group called 1491s. They do Indian humor videos and sketch comedy. There was a lot of laughter – some bittersweet – but it was a fun night. 1491s have a LOT of videos on YouTube if you want to check it out.

    And now – yaaaaaawwwwnnn- oh, excuse us, but it has been a long day.
    G’night everyone

  68. Riö - The Evil Pug

    CHobbit!…How is Sadie, Krazy Lady, doing tonight?…sniff!…Is she taking her pills…gah!…I hate pills unless they are well disguised and I do not smell them or taste them…grump!

  69. c.hobbit
    10:55 pm on November 14th, 2013

    Rio: Sadie’s urinalysis showed a lot of bacteria. Pills are always a challenge but cut in half and wrapped in chicken seems to do the trick. She has been sleeping a lot today but we did go for one long walk.

    I went to the ear doctor today. My ear infection is cleared up but I have fluid behind one ear drum which is still affecting my hearing. Also he commented that both ear drums were scarred. I am to continue my medicine and will have a hearing test on Dec 9th.

  70. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:59 pm on November 14th, 2013

    CHOBBIT!….I ASSUMED YOU COULD HEAR AGAIN AS I NEVER READ ANY UPDATES…sniff!…I might have missed her updates…grunt!…I wonder how she scarred both eardrums?…wheeze!

  71. Tupper and Gilly
    11:09 pm on November 14th, 2013

    CHobbit – last check in and we wanted to tell you the Storytelker had exactly the same problem a couple of years ago. Even after the infection was gone, it took a couple of months for all the fluid to be gone. At least it didn’t hurt anymore. So fear not, all will be well in a little while.
    Glad to know Sadie is on the right meds. Good call.
    And now good night. Really.

  72. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:18 pm on November 14th, 2013

    Deaf!…My friend said she works with a young gal who is deaf and reads lips….snort!…She is a beautiful, happy, very smart lady who is a joy to be around…grunt!…My friend says she has to be mindful of looking her in the face when she talks to her though…heh!heh!… Someone says she finds herself using her hands more when she talks to this gal, and she hates that she does that…grunt!

  73. BooBear
    11:26 pm on November 14th, 2013

    Rio, Mom works with several guys who don’t speak English very well. She finds herself talking louder to them than normal. Does she think they will understand her English if it is louder than normal? No, but she still finds herself doing that. How embarrassing for her. No telling what those poor guys are thinking.

  74. BooBear
    11:30 pm on November 14th, 2013

    Mom has her plunderer passport ready to go! She put my picture in it (picture is a little larger than it should be, but it fit on the page)and a picture of Gus is in there too. It just wouldn’t feel right not to include him. She has my stamp, too so I guess she is a ready-Freddy!

  75. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:35 pm on November 14th, 2013

    Texas!…Where Plunderers go to Meet n’ Greet!….Woooo!…We do want photos, you know…heh!…And a complete menu of what you ‘all had to eat for Brunch…snort!…And of course if you say anything about me I want to know about it…sniff!…Oh and please convince Barb to go Up North To Alaska!….wooooo!
