Kitchens and Us

I’d seen worse. The kitchen, which was where we ended up, was kind of nice. It had one of those old stoves you sometimes see that stand on little feet, with space underneath, and in that space, would you believe it? Practically a whole strip of bacon, presently – but not for long, amigo – getting gnawed on by a nervous-eyed mouse. The little guy split in a hurry – and tried to abscond with the goods, abscond with the goods being cop talk for making off with the bacon. In the end, he barely absconded with himself. As for the bacon? Delish, and not really that old at all. Still plenty of crunch left, which is how we like our bacon, me and Bernie. This case, whatever it was about exactly, couldn’t have been going more smoothly.

    Wow! Liz was here a few hours ago and we missed her. G’day Liz.

    Barb is making tuna salad for lunch today for Jamie and her. She adds chopped hard boiled eggs and a little sweet pickle relish. Does anyone else make it that way?

    Bacon! Another thing I have in common with Chet. And hey, with maggie too, are we triplets?

    Good morning! We are all on vacation here! Mom says that for some reason, we always have hurdles to jump over to get to vacation. We must have cleared those hurdles easily, because I didn’t even see them.

    We wish we could be with melanie. We will visit with her virtually. heh!

    Good morning y’all.

    MPM, I used to have a friend who had a certified service dog, because of balance issues. LLL ( little looloo since I can’t keep straight on which loo is who) may be a tad small for the purpose.

    I am off for a renal study ie. sonogram in just a bit. Yesterday was just a wonderland of medicalness. First, PCP, who gave me nice new drug that knocked the migraine on its donkey, plus referral to Rheumatologist for connective tissue issue,(heh-heh, it sounds funny when you say it out loud), one to the Cardiologist for blood pressure dropsies, an x-ray series on my back, and the above mentioned sonogram. Sheesh. I may be having a fundraiser of my own soon.

    So, I went for the x-ray, but it took to long to get in, had to leave to get to the NEXT new doc, who gives the meds that hopefully keep me from flinging myself off a bridge.
    Back to the radiologist, got the back photoed. Now I have to go drink a big glass of water and stay out of the WC until the sonogram is finished. After that I hope to avoid any medical personnel until Monday with Mom.

    I know…more info than anybody wanted, but you guys are my outlet for getting this outta my head, so feel free to read every third word.

    Later taters!

    That is an interesting Google Doodle.

    Rio: I’m still reading only one chapter per day. I’m not sure what chapter I’m on.

  11. Macy's mom
    9:47 am on September 27th, 2013

    One more thing…

    After he went up in flames last October, Big Tex has undergone major surgery and it back better than ever.

  12. Dima
    9:49 am on September 27th, 2013

    Macy’s Mom, Wow you sure had to do a lot of medical visits…even more than me. I had to go get my vampire stab last evening. Hope just called and said “all normal”. Heh! Little do they know…
    Mom just gave me a brand new pill, and get this: She wore those smelly gloves when she gave it to me. But, it was cleverly wrapped in my wonderful Greenies pocket, so what the heck. All’s good.

  13. Barb & Maggie
    9:50 am on September 27th, 2013

    Can’t do it here, Bee. We are up to chapter 4, and just started yesterday. We are loving it!

  14. Barb & Maggie
    9:53 am on September 27th, 2013

    Macy’s Mom, You are really getting a work-over. Hang in there and feel better. Barb wants to meet you soon.

    Chet, Mom was thinking of you and Bernie driving to work today. Listening to (and singing with..bad, bad, bad) Marty Robbins Cowboy ballads. Love some of those old ones!

    Last!…Day at the damned-if-you-do-and-damned-if-you-don’t busy place for my friend today…snort!snort!…They are having a big ole potluck party for her and then later a Going Away Party at the local bar where many rounds will be had …grunt!

    Good Morning All! Remember the commercial about the dog who loved bacon and floated in the air?

    Out for my walk. I have to stay healthy and sick at the same time. Huh?


    (Hi LizF!)

    What a Nice Surprise! Liz popped by to say cheerio & wish SnowBella a Happy Birthday last night.
    G’night Liz! Good Morning to the rest of youse.

    Macy: Oh, Dear, not your mom too! Positive Thoughts and Prayers coming her way. She will joining Melanie & MollyPop’s Mom under the Quilt.
    Good News: Big Tex is back and he’s Bigger than ever!

    10:57 am on September 27th, 2013

    Rio, Is your friend working for the same company, but just at a different location? We didn’t think she was actually going to a new company.

  21. Basil and Sage
    11:01 am on September 27th, 2013

    Liz – it was so good to hear from you! We miss you.

    Macy – gah! Sounds like your Mom belongs in the book of Medical Weirdosities with Melanie and Mama, and maybe with HOH’ s pack leader too. All paws crossed for ANSWERS! ( that’s the most frustrating part – hurting or being sick with no answers)

    And now back to the cellar cleaning. Did we mention that we are being a BIG help? At least that’s what Mama keeps thanking us for: being a BIG help.

  22. Rose
    11:04 am on September 27th, 2013

    RIO! I bet your friend is very excited about her new job! Maybe she will do so much after partying, she’ll bring you home a pug-sized keg o beer!

    Big Tex, looking good!

    Mariano Riviera! sniff sniff

    B&M: Very kool here too…same temp as you…also another rainy morning.
    Summer is gone, gone, gone. Sob.
    We are savoring TSATF like a fine wine.
    Mom sits reading…alternating between chuckles, gasps and a goofy grin on her face.
    Riö: Wooo. It will be so nice for your friend to work in the same town where she lives. Commute time can really get on one’s nerves, especially in the winter months with icy roads.
    Rose: Mariano Riviera…what happened?

  24. Masquers
    11:34 am on September 27th, 2013

    Herbs: With your katable assistance your mama will be finished in no time! But keep a close eye out for those incorrigible Corgis with their boxes and packing tape.

    Macy”s Mom, Jeeze Louise! I’m tired just listening to all the docs you have been to.

    T&G, would love to send Ros down to help with any kleenex issues.

    Zoë and I went on our walk. Beautiful muted colors this fall. Of our six houses for sale in town, one is being closed on this next week. Yoo Woo! One less for sale sign.

    I will be receiving my fall plants this week. Here’s a picture of what I am getting. .

    Masquers, Mariano Riviera retired. It was an emotional last time on the mound. sniff, sniff

    BooBear, Those Marty Robbins Western songs are at the top of our list for all time favorites.

    12:04 pm on September 27th, 2013

    Macy’s Mom, Melanie, and MPM’s mom, Thinking of you, and hoping all of this medical stuff is behind you soon and you will be back to feeling tip-top.

    They did a good job on Big Tex.

    Rio: your friend and I are twinsies today! Two people celebrating special days. My friends are hosting a potluck this evening for my b-day. Usually I just go out to dinner with my two best friends but I guess in honor of my leaving, we are actually having a party. My first since I don’t know how long. So…feeling happy today.

    [My sister a few years ago announced that she was done with b-day and Christmas presents or any presents except for the grandchildren. Another way we are so different: I love buying gifts for people.]

    C.Hobbit! I knew it! Knew it was the day of your Birth this month, but didn’t know which Day.
    So now we can wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

    Melanie: Our Favorite of your Flowers is the Cheyenne Spirit Coneflower.

    Happy Birthday, C.Hobbit!! is the party in North Pole or in Anchorage?

  36. Masquers
    12:57 pm on September 27th, 2013

    Cool! Teddy is already a famous (extra) actor.
    Thanks, Siber, for the info and Rose for the link re Mariano Riviera. He seems too young to retire, but I guess 44 for an athlete is considered to be old age.

  37. c.hobbit
    12:59 pm on September 27th, 2013

    BooBear: party in Fairbanks! And it is supposed to be nice today. A bonus because I am working on sorting my garage and shed so a nice day helps.

    HRH, B: Google is celebrating their anniversary today.

  42. Rose

    BooBear: Are your mom and pop going to the Iditarod? If I had blurring powers, I would love to cat sit for you.

  44. Macy's mom
    2:03 pm on September 27th, 2013

    Happy B-day to C. Harris too. Funsies, sorting!!

    Thanks for all the good wishes. Most of the reason for all the rush is that my insurance deductible starts over on Tues and the difference between 20% and 100% is….uh…math.

    To Rio’s friend. Happy Nasty Busy Place in the Rearview Mirror Day!

    Melanie pretty flowers.

    Barb, can’t wait.

    Everybody else, consider it commented on, must nap, in three, two,onezzz

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHOBBIT!!! And many more returns of the day.

    This is certainly a festive week with anniversaries, birthdays, new apartment leases etc. Happy days to all.

    AND the new furnace man just came to do the pre-inspection and said we only have to move half the things in the cellar that we thought. Woo hoooooo!

  46. BooBear
    2:17 pm on September 27th, 2013

    Wose, Mom and Dad are going North to Alaska and leaving us home alone. But no worries, we have a fantastic cat sitter who will often spend the night with us so we won’t be lonely. Taking care of all of us is quite a chore so Mom is really happy to have such great friends. HOWEVER, they are going to retire soon and move to Bisbee, Arizona! Maybe we can work out a frequent flyer plan with Wolfie to blur you down to take care of us then! We really are very good kitties!

  47. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:59 pm on September 27th, 2013

    I do remember The Age Before Computers.

    Happy last Day at the way Too Busy Place to Rio’s friend.

    Happy happy birthday to C.Hobbit! We finally got that package mailed this morning. Sorry it took us a bit; mom has a lot on her plate. (We could share anything on anyone’s plate. Just sayin’).

    Macy, Melanie, MPM, stay under the quilt.

    Mom’s company still uses Lotus Notes for email, Rose.

    We just harvested more potatoes than should be legal!!!

    B: How did we Ever survive without instant access to the World of Syberspace? Now, to be without a Smartphone or iPaw can be likened to being stranded on a desert island.

    Bear: LOL!

  54. c.hobbit
    3:57 pm on September 27th, 2013

    Speaking of packages…I am mailing 3 more auction packages out today!

    I also remember The Age Before Computers but mostly I remember the intervening years of slow, crashing computers, the lack of adequate training on them and being expected to also be a computer repairperson. One could always blame mistakes on computers and people would nod their heads and understand. Now when I leave my iPhone at home, it is like leaving my brain behind.

    Happy Birthday to CHobbit!

    MacyMinPin’s Mom: Yikes! You have a ton of doctor’s and my extreme sympathy.

    It is sunny today so I’m going out into the weed patch garden to get rid of weed seed heads before the snow falls.

  56. Masquers
    4:50 pm on September 27th, 2013

    CHobbit: Like leaving our brains behind…sad but true.

    Dawson: The garden. You are making me feel guilty!

  57. Tupper's Mama
    7:16 pm on September 27th, 2013

    Whew – we finally are getting to sit down after working in the cellar all afternoon. Please understand that this cellar is our combination laundry room/daily clothes closet/seasonal clothes storage/cedar closet/pantry/rarely used but necessary on occasion kitchen apparatus and pans/ mud room/ cat litter and feeding room etc. it is a very large area that is well used, and now we have to find a place to put everything.
    The Kats are not amused.

  58. Barb & Maggie
    7:17 pm on September 27th, 2013

    C Hobbit, Glad you are almost at the end of your move and house sale. It is such a relief when it is all wrapped up.

    Interesting that you and your sister are very different. Same here. Barb’s only sister came to visit her one time in the 6 years she lived in her place in the country. She was soooo excited to see Barb’s place that she sat in the driveway for 30 minutes and yaked on her cell phone when she first arrived. In the 3 days she was there she never ventured past the patio. Would not walk out to look at the gardens, chicken coop or barn. Barb asked her to, and she said “Maybe later”! She also will NOT read a C & B book.

  59. B. Stover
    7:41 pm on September 27th, 2013

    I just watched the first episode of the second season of Elementary–the one set in London, England. It was very good.

  60. BearSpiritDog
    7:44 pm on September 27th, 2013

    (whispering) let’s all blurr over and (help him eat his birthday cake) wish Franklin a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Melanie and Zoe won’t mind.

  61. BearSpiritDog
    7:46 pm on September 27th, 2013

    B: Elementary was on last night? Can’t Wait to see it!

    B.Stover, my sister took a manual typewriter in to her class. Her students wanted to know if it was wireless. They couldn’t find a plug. Snort,

    I have been reading every third sentence. My rest day was postponed when I got the call that my computer glasses were in! The office is closed over the weekend. Monday is out. And I don’t know when I’ll be allowed to drive again.

    Grace went with me to keep me awake. She did a good job. Slim Jims might have been involved.

    It IS Franklin’s 9th Birthday.

  64. O'Howlers
    8:17 pm on September 27th, 2013

    Happy Birthday, Franklin! The ‘rents just got home from their anniversary dinner. The Bordeaux wine was white, and the tuna was overcooked. Wah!
    We are now going to the summer kitchen tavern for a fire and a beer. Good night.

  66. B. Stover
    8:27 pm on September 27th, 2013

    Melanie: That is funny about the typewriter.

    Bear: Yes, Elementary was on last night. I watched it On Demand.

  67. c.hobbit
    8:28 pm on September 27th, 2013

    Happy b-day Franklin! I am stopping for the day and cleaning up for my party. I have discovered that on the last trip to Anchorage I took my hair dryer, almost all of my makeup, my tweezers and my fingernail scissors. So I am going to look scraggly but my friends won’t mind.

    Latest dilemma: how to keep Sadie out of the back yard (which is the dog yard) until the re-inspection happens. One of the repairs was to fill in dog holes especially against the foundation. Siber-H: are you paying attention? I had to buy dirt and have it compacted. Gah!

    I may check in later….

  68. Wose
    8:30 pm on September 27th, 2013

    I remember before computers too. Remember dial up for computers? My first cell phone weighed about five pounds and had a very long retractable antenna .
    I can’t believe Lotus notes are still being used!!!

    HRH, B: I look younger than I am. When I was in elementary school! I had cursive writing class every day, and we had to write with a fountain pen.

  69. Wose
    8:32 pm on September 27th, 2013

    Wooooohoooo! Teddy is coming tomorrow !

  70. Melanie
    8:50 pm on September 27th, 2013

    Rose, remember dial up? When we lived in the Eastern part of the state, we had Broadband. We moved here and had DIAL UP! Arrrrg.

    C.Hobbit, Happy Birthday.
    Riö’s Friend, Thank Dog that part is over.

    We are not singing in this video. The Herbs came over and sang.

  71. Siber-H
    8:52 pm on September 27th, 2013

    C.Hobbitt, WOW Sadie can come to work for me.
    The holes up along side the house are the most difficult. I am impressed.

    One more thing then I’m headed upstairs. Luckily, LLL is a very good Attorney!

    These are from a book called “Disorder in the American Courts”
    People actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges were actually taking place.

    ATTORNEY: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?
    WITNESS: He said, ‘Where am I, Cathy?’
    ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you?
    WITNESS: My name is Susan!
    ATTORNEY: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?
    WITNESS: Yes.
    ATTORNEY: And in what ways does it affect your memory?
    WITNESS: I forget.
    ATTORNEY: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?
    ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn’t it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn’t know about it until the next morning?
    WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam?
    ATTORNEY: Were you present when your picture was taken?
    WITNESS: Are you kidding me?
    ATTORNEY: She had three children, right?
    WITNESS: Yes.
    ATTORNEY: How many were boys?
    WITNESS: None.
    ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?
    WITNESS: Your Honor, I think I need a different attorney. Can I get a new attorney?
    ATTORNEY: How was your first marriage terminated?
    WITNESS: By death.
    ATTORNEY: And by whose death was it terminated?
    WITNESS: Take a guess.
    ATTORNEY: Can you describe the individual?
    WITNESS: He was about medium height and had a beard
    ATTORNEY: Was this a male or a female?
    WITNESS: Unless the Circus was in town I’m going with male.
    ATTORNEY: Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition notice which I sent to your attorney?
    WITNESS: No, this is how I dress when I go to work.
    ATTORNEY: Doctor, how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people?
    WITNESS: All of them. The live ones put up too much of a fight.
    ATTORNEY: ALL your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to?
    WITNESS: Oral.
    ATTORNEY: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?
    WITNESS: The autopsy started around 8:30 PM
    ATTORNEY: And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?
    WITNESS: If not , he was by the time I finished.
    And last:

    ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
    WITNESS: No.
    ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
    WITNESS: No.
    ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
    WITNESS: No..
    ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
    WITNESS: No.
    ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
    WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
    ATTORNEY: I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
    WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.

  73. Barb & Maggie

    Franklin, We thought you were either 9 or 10.

    Think we are signing off, too. See you tomorrow. It has been a long day!

    Happy Birthday to my favorite Hobbit!

    Happy Birthday to Franklin!

    Happy anniversariy to the Howler’s maw and paw!

    Happy last day at the damned-if-you-do job for Rio’s friend.

    I’m so excited to meet the Ruff Rider and his maw and paw that I splorted twice in the middle of the night last night. I may do it again before too long. I always get excited when I visit Wose and Gwizz.

    Before we go we have to say that those reports by Melanie are hysterical. Are people that dumb? And most of the dumb comments were made by the attorney!

    Friend!…WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOO!…heh!heh!

    Hmmmphf!…Everyone is in bed…sniff!…My friend was telling us all about her big day. It was great apparently….snort!…First off a big dept meeting (this never happens) and they, those that are in charge, manager-types that is, all acknowledged her and all the work she has done at the busy-damned-place and gave her many heart-felt Thank-Youse and then they gave her a Really Gigantic Giant-Sized Card that everyone had signed….wheeze!…Most of the comments where “Congratulations on getting the hell outta here! Woooo!” …heh!heh!…Even her mother laughed over those comments on that big ole card…chorkel!

    FAC!…The get-together after leaving the busy-place was small with just her closest friends and because of the RAIN they cut it short….sniff!…But it was very nice and my friend seems super-duper happy tonight…heh!…This will be the first weekend in a very long time where she will not dread with all her heart going back to the busy-place on Monday morning…chuffle!

    Riö, That is so nice for your friend. Sniff. Sniff

    I am up against that wall again. I believe I will only do things in my room tomorrow.
    And, maybe take a gate off one of the fences using power tools. Wit any luck I can use the sawzall!

    Melanie!…heh!…What are you doing up at all hours of the night and day?…snort!…Get off the wall and into your nice warm bed…grunt!

    Barb!…My friend saw that you mentioned Tuna Salad and she makes the BEST-EVER Tuna salad. Even Beau and I like it and we hate everything…cough!….So here is her recipe:

    Chicken of the Sea Solid Albacore
    Celery chopped small
    Red Onion chopped small
    Dill Pickle relish or Dill Pickles chopped small
    Best Foods Mayo

    Drain the Tuna really well, so it is dry and then flake it up with a fork. Add celery, onion and lots of dill pickle and mayo to taste. It’s all good!…snort!

    Rio: I’m glad your friend is done with that job that is so dreadful and on to new and better things. Maybe she will give you and Beau a cookie to celebrate the occasion.
    Happy Birthday to Franklin and a fun-filled Anniversary weekend for the O’Howlers.
    Melanie: Those bloopers had me howling!
    Good morning LizF. (Now I will go read your comments from last night)(I keep getting distracted)

    We like tuna with pickles, egg and apple.

    This is getting ridiculous.
    While waiting to snooze (I am now trying a cup of warm milk) I thought of those turkeys I saw on the side of the road . . Turkey is supposed to make you sleep. Seems to me they would be way too noisy, but you never know.

    Heard from YSAS earlier. The moving company is booked and checked on twice. Almost everything is packed. The movers arrive on Sunday.

    OTAS and GLAD have made it to the B&B. I hope they have a wonderful time.

    Grace and I have planned our mission for tonight to get a turkey or two if the milk doesn’t help. Where did we see those birds?

    Hi Macy, wish I could eat tuna. For some reason I have lost the taste to eat a lot of protein. Of course, if I go to my favorite diner and they fix me a Feta cheese Omelet, I enjoy it. If I try doing it . . Half way through I look at it and lose my appetite. The dogs are happy though.

  87. Melanie and Grace on a Mission
    1:26 am on September 28th, 2013

    I have had it. I have left my warm, comfy bed and dressed in dark clothes. Grace and I have put dirt on our faces and are going out to catch us a TURKEY. Wish us luck.
