    Great story! “It was like a dog from heaven.”

    Good luck to T and G’s mom and dad for a great shew, and to ML for a successful sale.

    And to everyone else for a good day.

    Nana, I was in Duluth yesterday, and it was raining, 42 degrees, and wind gusting at 35 mph. Make sure you bring a sweater when you visit. Just sayin’.

    Good morning. Lady Bunny, who’s a good dog?

    Rio, we agree with you exactly about Fargo. Deadline.

    Youse are Up Early!
    Now who does this little dog story remind us of?

    Hounds: Waiting for you to turn up the Heat a little. It doesn’t get to 70 until the end of the day.

    Billy’sBuddy: Gah. 45 degrees…and Stormy…lot of storms back there. Not good flying weather.

    BluKat: So sorry about the damaged car, but Thank Dog your Dad is okay.

    The Best of Shows to Golinka & the Storyteller this weekend.
    (quite an adventure there with the unexpected shopping)

    On a very similar note: one year the ‘rents went to Hatteras for vacation. When they unpacked their suitcases, Mom discovered she didn’t pack her shorts. NO SHORTS. That was a similar, unplanned shopping adventure. Did we tell youse that Mom hates to shop?

  6. Herd of Hounds
    9:08 am on June 20th, 2014

    OH, our mom’s must be twins! Our mom hates to shop, too. If she really NEEDS something, she prefers to curl up with a good catalogue.

    Good morning everyone.
    Riö: A Fargo writer’s deadline. You are right. That is the only logical explanation…and the only reason the grand finale needed to run an extra 30 minutes was to get in some extra commercials.
    Howlers: Is this your go-to-work day?
    Not a fan of shopping here either. Katalogs are the only way to go.

    Good upbeat story to start the day. Roofer is here even tho it looks cloudy out there. Sears is coming to fix microwave this morning and two munchkins will be here from noon till 4:00. Busy, not-at-work day!

    Barb does not like to shop either. She never goes to malls and usually just power shops when she needs something, or uses the internet.

    Barb’s sister got totally different genes. Not into environmental issues or animals, but LOVES to shop. Her idea of entertainment is shop, lunch, shop, nap. Every time we have a family get together, Barb has to follow along while people shop, her idea of torture!

    I don’t like that Lady Bunny apparently runs around loose.

    MPM, You are right. In Alaska they may not have the traffic that you have in your location, but what about other predators?

  12. BearSpiritDog
    10:11 am on June 20th, 2014

    Alaska? How could we have Missed That? (reading between the lines again).

    Off to a Wonderfluffing appointment. Someone here will come back looking all spiffy instead of looking like a Shaggy Dog.

    Good job, Lady Bunny! It does sound as if Lady Bunny runs around loose. Bad job! An eagle’s brunch waiting to happen.

    Blue Kat: Hope your Dad is still feeling okay after the accident.

    T&G: Good luck to the Royal Mum and Storyteller (dressed to the nines) on the show this weekend.

    I am sort of glad it is an all-day-drizzle outside. I have so many bug bites I may have to take a bath in calamine lotion. Two no-see-ums got me – one on each eyelid. The left eye is bitten on the outside corner of eye and the right eye has a bite right in the middle of the lower eye lid, swollen and making vision a bit blurry. Not to mention right behind the ears, the neck, the arms the legs etc. Bumper crop of biting insects this year.

    Mom & Dad’s morning:

    ~ chiropractor for dad, just in case
    ~ insurance agent
    ~ body shop, car probably totaled
    ~ rental car, Porsche (kidding!)

    Macy – no thanks necessary. You and yours are in our hearts.

    Safe and Healthy weekend, Everybody. We appreciate the good wishes for dad.

    Barb picked up her car from the dealership last night. She is glad she bought the extended warranty when she got the car 3 years ago. Her plan was to have the car for a long time so she got top of the line 75,000 mile warranty. So her $4-500.00 air conditioner repair cost her $100. It also provided her with a rental car for the two days. She had her first time ever detailing on the car and it now looks like a brand new, just out of the showroom model! $110.00 for deluxe exterior wash and interior detailing, and it was well worth it. Barb is so cheap, I never thought I would hear her say that!

  18. dawson
    11:33 am on June 20th, 2014

    Barb&Maggie: Sounds like you got a couple good deals! What exactly is interior detailing?

  19. Barb & Maggie
    11:47 am on June 20th, 2014

    Dawson, Complete vacuuming, washing and waxing of all plastic, shampooing of upholstery, windows cleaned, etc. Car looks brand new inside, as compared to how Barb cleans it.

    Hello from show land. Kind of a slow start, but that’s OK. The weekend is coming.

    BlueKat – go for the Porsche. Natasha ( and Siber) would approve.

    Barb – glad you have your beautifully detailed car back, but admit it, you had fun dri ving that monster truck didn’t you?

  22. Herd of Hounds
    12:21 pm on June 20th, 2014

    Rio: NO SEE ‘UM, not mosquito. They are nasty little buggers!
    Barb: glad your car is in better shape than ours. Windows have nose art so it is hard to see out 🙂 You’re welcome.
    (Darah here) Hah! Someone says catching sushi is hard…no way Jose! I had a fish jump into my mouth yesterday, he is sushi 🙂 and I am the first Newfie huntress 🙂
    Sorry but the above story is true !

  23. Siber-H
    12:38 pm on June 20th, 2014

    That is a nice article, but that little doggie could be taken so easily by a predator.

    Bluecat, Glad your dad is okay but it is always such a hassle to take care of all the business afterwards. You deserve to drive around in a Porsche for all your trouble…bill it to the guilty party’s insurance.

  24. Barb & Maggie
    12:40 pm on June 20th, 2014

    Darah, Did you eat him, head (and eyeballs) and all?

    Amalia, Barb did have fun with the monster truck, but she should have had a little step stool to make it easier to get in and out.

    I did not know the had No See Ums in Canada. Thought they were a southern insect like chiggers. We only have mosquitoes here, and that is bad enough.

  25. Barb & Maggie
    12:43 pm on June 20th, 2014

    Siber, Unfortunately the rental coverage on insurance usually has a max. per date rate. $40.00 per day is typical. Luxury cars are usually more than that. I think Barb’s monster truck would have been $50.00 per day. Then rental company gives a special rate to the Ford dealership, so it was only $30.00 per day.

  26. Herd of Hounds
    12:49 pm on June 20th, 2014

    Have to admit I only swished the fish around my mouth. Sorta tasty, sorta not. Left it in the sushi pool for mom to feed to the feral kat 🙂 Maybe a different kind of fish would be more tasty…trout, salmon, bass????? (-Darah)

  27. dawson
    12:51 pm on June 20th, 2014

    Rio: I had my head bent down over a row of onions and my “bangs” were hanging over my eyes. When I lifted my head a cloud of no-see-ums scattered from around my head. These buggers take a real chunk out of you, not just blood like mosquitoes.

  28. dawson
    12:52 pm on June 20th, 2014

    Good morning everyone. Mr.Fireslippers is on his way out west to go to a weekend Bluegrass festival in Washburn North Dakota.

    We are hanging around the house making bird food and watching the monarchs change into chrysali. (Hmm that must be the correct plural because spell check left it alone) So far we have missed 3 changes. One left to go.

    HOH- I have had a butterfly at my butterfly feeders today. Mostly I have only had flies. Little sugar seeking flies. How are you butterfly feeders doing?

    Weeds. weeds galore…grump.

  30. Herd of Hounds
    1:16 pm on June 20th, 2014

    Staff, all the butterfly activity is sporadic 🙁 Mid July is Moth month, waiting for that. The Summer Phlox is about to bloom. Hope that brings in more than a few butterflies. Think we had more last summer when we weren’t trying for the winged critters 🙁

  31. Masquers
    3:31 pm on June 20th, 2014

    Dawson: Dam no-see-ums! Those little bug-gers are highly annoying…didn’t know they could bite though…yet another reason not to like them.
    Thieves! Hoping your lady had good flight. Sorry there were no trackers on duty at that (unkatly) early hour.
    Check your SDD when you can.

  32. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:48 pm on June 20th, 2014

    No-See-Um!…Never heard of them…grunt!

    Loose!…Mr.FireSlippers is on the Loose!…snort!…Watch for news out of North Dakota…heh!

    There was an accident very close to us this morning. It was on a little country road just across from our field. We used to ride our horses on that winding road before Pop got scarit. A woman was out for a morning walk, and hit and killed by a pickup truck. The woman was the CEO of the company which is 2nd largest employer in our county. Very sad.

    Zeusiköv: Nice foto! But, what’s with the “Dexter”?
    Howlers: It is very sad when one can’t go for a walk or a ride without fear of accident or worse. We are thankful your mom & pop no longer ride on that windy road.

    Masquers: I think every region has their own unique version of the no-see-um. Except some areas in Colorado. These darlings look like a small gnat…only they bite.

    O’Howlers: Sad news. Stay away from that dangerous road.

    Loulou and I took our usual walk down the Lehigh memorial trail. We walk on Main Street, busy busy busy, with her in the stroller and then when we get to the trail she gets out and walks. Today there was an older man at the start of the trail and we walked past him to the spot where I was taking Loulou out of the stroller. He came up and wanted to pet Loulou. Then he walked on ahead down the trail but stopped at the first bench and sat down. I was concerned that it looked like he was waiting for me. I was beginning to get uncomfortable. When we got to the bench he got up and he walked a little further down the trail and stood there off the edge of the path. There was a woman with a big dog ahead of me and also another man. Further ahead there was a truck with workers cutting grass. I felt safe continuing to walk ahead but knew I was going to have to come back, so I quickly picked up Loulou and put her back in the stroller. She couldn’t believe it because we had just gotten there. We high-tailed it back home. I’m still creeped out about the whole thing.

  43. BearSpiritDog
    5:09 pm on June 20th, 2014

    MollyPop’s Mom: A Scarey Situation! You were right to feel uncomfortable. Good thing the workers were there!

  44. O'Howlers
    5:13 pm on June 20th, 2014

    MPM, we are creeped out just reading that. Glad there were others on the trail, and double-glad you and Loulou skedaddled out of there. Will you be worried next time?

  45. Diane C.
    5:20 pm on June 20th, 2014

    Mollypop’s Mom–Gaah! I think you did the right thing, even if the guy was harmless (although that was odd behavior). Sad that we encounter stuff like this (and that Loulou missed her w a l k).
    Tupper’s Mum–I hope the weekend goes better and that you and the Storyteller get plenty of wear out of the new clothes.
    HOH–Don’t serve minors! Hah! (And I am forwarding to my three musical friends.)
    So does Zeus now go by Zeusdexter? Glad the goldfish/suchi was spared…
    We lost Gerry Goffin. Now who will love me tomorrow?

  46. Diane C.
    5:20 pm on June 20th, 2014

    And good dog Lady Bunny–maybe stick close to home, though. Your parents seem a little distracted…

  47. Mollypop's Mom
    5:32 pm on June 20th, 2014

    O’Howlers, I will definitely be alert the next time we walk there. I’m going to wait a few days before we do it again.

  48. Masquers
    5:36 pm on June 20th, 2014

    DianeC: Sorry to hear of Gerry Goffin’s passing.
    MPM: That was a creepy scenario. Is there someone else that can go with you? or better yet, somewhere else to walk.
    Many people do mall-walks for safety, but that wouldn’t work with LouLou.

  49. Luna
    6:13 pm on June 20th, 2014

    MPM: The Giant is overprotective of my mama. He gets that from me. He says he trusts my mama, but he doesn’t trust the rest of the world. It is best to listen to your gut.

  50. Herd of Hounds
    7:01 pm on June 20th, 2014

    WE always listen to mom’s gut…it talks all the time 🙂

  51. Tupper'sMama
    7:12 pm on June 20th, 2014

    Back at the hotel after day one of the three day show. Pretty quiet today – hoping for huge crowds this weekend. We’re ready for them.
    Everyone thought the Storyteller looked very nice today. grrrr

    MPM – cautious judgment is still better than risking a bad situation. Good call

    Staff – hearing about flash flooding in Minnesota – is all well with you and yours?

  52. Barb & Maggie
    7:41 pm on June 20th, 2014

    MPM, Might have been a harmless situation, but we think it is better to follow your gut instincts as HOH said. If something was making you uneasy, you were probably right. Can you carry a little spray of mace? Of course since you said he was older, maybe he was just in poor shape.

    Lyla, who is going to be 8 in September announced that she wants to be a vegetarian because she doesn’t like killing animals. Barb told her she admires her love of animals but she thinks she should be older before she makes that decision. She still need protein to grow, doesn’t she? Josh doesn’t think it is a good idea, but Jess said she supports her decision. What do you think? Should a 7 year old be allowed to make decisions like this? We say NO!

  53. Mollypop's Mom
    7:53 pm on June 20th, 2014

    I say YES, but it’s qualified. She can’t live and grow with the wrong foods. She has to make good choices to get adequate protein and adequate B12 vitamins. She can’t live on bread and cereal and cookies. It needs to be the good food like vegetables and salads and again some nice high-protein. If it’s done correctly it can be very healthy. At her age she can’t make the right diet decisions so she needs help.

  54. c.hobbit
    8:06 pm on June 20th, 2014

    I have friends whose young daughter said the same thing. She loves animals so much she didn’t want to kill or eat them. She has been vegetarian ever since. The family eats healthy and makes sure she gets protein from non-animal sources (the rest of the family eats meat). My niece as a teen wanted to go vegetarian and did for a while but felt better when she ate meat so it was just a phase she went through. I say give it a go and reassess in a couple of weeks or a month. If she is serious about this, see if mom and daughter can meet with a dietician or nutritionist to answer questions before starting on the new program.

    P.S. I also have a vegetarian friend who has raised her children vegetarian from birth. All are healthy and strong.

    Meat!…It’s whats for supper!…snort!…Her mother likes to eat meat!meat!meant! along with all her sugar. My friend could go a long time without eating any meat but probably not forever…sniff!…I know I like mine cut up into small bits so I can just swallow it without trying to chew it with my snaggley teeth…wheeze!

    8:48 pm on June 20th, 2014

    Nana’s family thinks Vegetarianism is a Good Thing.
    Her mother and two sisters followed/follow this practice. Nana, although she is becoming increasingly more conscious of our food sources does not.
    We think it will be difficult for Lyla to continue eating meat when she feels so strongly on the subject.

  58. O'Howlers
    8:55 pm on June 20th, 2014

    We agree with Nana and the others. We have a 15-year old friend who has been vegetarian for a couple of years. She and her mother make sure that she follows a healthy diet, with plenty of protein. If Lyla’s mother is willing to help her, vegetarian can be quite nourishing.

    Brewers!…Rockies are playing those Brewers tonight….sniff!….I used to like Ryan Braun a lot. Not so much now….spituuuweee!….on his drugging ways…grump!

  60. Barb & Maggie
    9:08 pm on June 20th, 2014

    Well, we agree a teenager is probably old enough to make that decision and make wise choices about alternate protein sources. A 7 year old, IMO, can’t do that without parental help. Mom is so busy that she probably won’t take the time to go to a nutritionist to chart a food plan for her. Josh might be more likely to do that. However, since he cooks paleo at home (Josh does more of the cooking) they have mostly meat, veggies, fruit and nuts. It’s easier to get complete proteins if you are mixing grains, beans, corn, and rice in your diet. I just thing she is going to have a lopsided diet. I still think a girl’s body has done most of its growing by the time they go thru puberty, and that would be a better time to go vegetarian. Of course, I am not the decision maker in this case.

  61. Barb & Maggie
    9:25 pm on June 20th, 2014

    One more comment, and I know this might be old fashioned. I think a 7 year old does not make the rules. She is a child and should eat what’s put on her plate. If she can tell her parents what she will and will not eat at 7, what is she going to be telling them when she is 16?

  62. O'Howlers
    9:33 pm on June 20th, 2014

    Barb, we do see your point. The mom who is encouraging the vegetarian diet would have to put a lot of work into it. Better if she waits a few years.

  63. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:46 pm on June 20th, 2014

    We think we are going to call it a night. Maybe a little reading. In Dog We Trust is pretty good. Definitely not up to C & B quality though.

    May be late but our mom was one of those weird kids that decided to be “vegetarian” whose family disagreed. It is a personal choice. Mom still eats no mammals. We think there is something in each of us that defines us. Go with it.

    Bear, That is why soccer is so easy to follow.

    Mom got me a soccer ball for the World Cup. It is the size of a regular soccer ball but soft and plush like a stuffed animal.

    We are turning in. I can’t even bring myself to say how far the Rockies are behind right now.

    After a night of travel, our lady has landed in Orlando. Is her hair curly or what? It is so humid she thought it was raining when she landed. Now, she needs to get to the hotel and get some sleep.

    Morning, noodles.
