Last Night in NH

“Did anyone throw anything?” Admin says.
“Not only no to that,” says Spence, “but afterwards some of them bought me a beer.”
“Next time I’m coming too.”

Welcome Charlie from Toronto – any other members of the nation within from north of the border out there?

    Good morning all.
    Spence, hope you had an enjoyable and successful tour. Will always have wonderful memories of attending the Naperville signing. Rest and relax now, and wait for AFOC to reach the top 10! (As Wookie says, 1 more than # 11!)

    Good Morning B&M!

    Beautiful day here in Westchetser!

    Spence, hope the tour was successful, now you can have fun with Audrey and Pearl, and start on the next C&B book. :^)

    Greetings to All!

    What brand of beer?

    Good morning all.

    Good morning! Wonder if Spence was also drinking B.O.R.I.S. the Crusher?

    Welcome home, Spencer..we know how happy Audrey and Pearl are that you are home.

    Ah, Spence: It’s a slippery slope. By the bye; Minneapolis is the craft beer brewery capital of America. If you come here for a signing/reading, we will buy you two beers (or more)!
    Admin: I think you’d better go with if just to keep an eye on Spence.
    The bell, the bell! The old folks are wearing me out already. Something to do with spiders. Yikes!

    Now meet (coincidentally, really) Boris.

  7. Masquers
    10:32 am on September 25th, 2012

    Terry: Love your Kat photos. Kats rule!

  8. Siber-H
    10:56 am on September 25th, 2012

    Dogs Rule!

    Terry’s Boris does look like a Boris, though. That is a good looking kat.

  9. Staff
    10:59 am on September 25th, 2012

    Terry, Love your kat photo’s. The one yesterday had the world in his eyes. Such tired/defensive eyes. He could have been called Sam Spade. Boris is a cutie.

    Dawson. Yikes. Spiders? Maybe I should bring Alice M. after all. She is good with spiders. I am not. And I want to know how these blind people are seeing spiders anyhow???

    I am going to turn off the computer now and pack it up. Time to leave, almost. Hope to get on the road by 10:30 and that means I should be home around 4 or so. 6 hours is what we usually take.


  10. Rose
    11:14 am on September 25th, 2012

    Terry, I am lovin’ your cat pictures. I hope they all find forever homes.

  11. Rose
    11:16 am on September 25th, 2012

    SiberH: Lightning bolts on Wednesday almost never happen, but it was the only day I could fit into mine and the Prof’s schedule.

  12. Rose
    11:18 am on September 25th, 2012

    Rio, thanks for your concern about my hair. If the lightning bolts cause my hair to set itself on fire, I’m sure the Smoochers will be there with a fire extinguisher.

    I truly hope things get better for your friend.

  13. BearSpiritDog
    11:28 am on September 25th, 2012

    Staff: Safe and pleasant journey to MN. Our hope is no spiders will be encountered at your destination.
    Looking forward to the package. And thanks to Alic & Abbie for the puzzle of the other day.

    Wose: We are confident you are in good paws with the Smoochers Four.

    Siber-H: Indeed. Dogs rule!

  14. Barb & Maggie
    11:47 am on September 25th, 2012

    Back from shopping at a couple of wonderful grocery stores. Does anyone have a Fresh Market in their area? Barb goes crazy in that place!

    It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood! We are experiencing some perfect fall days.

  15. OleyHowlers
    11:55 am on September 25th, 2012

    Perfect weather here as well. Terry’s cat is beautiful, but he doesn’t look like the Boris we know.

  16. Siber-H
    12:01 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Wose, Thanks for answering my question. It is Wednesday then.
    We’ll be with you in spirit and the nutty but loveable girls and Masquers will be with you in person.

    Perfect weather here today. That is fine if you like that kind of weather.

  17. BearSpiritDog
    12:16 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: We love hearing about your home and your daily adventures in the new locale.
    Magpie: How are you doing? Are you making quick work of adjusting to the change?

  18. OleyHowlers
    12:30 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Maggie, we want pictures!

  19. Gus and BooBear
    12:31 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Safe trip, Staff! It’s wonderful how the sisters have worked out splitting time with the parents.

    Scary news here. Dad had a seizure yesterday evening. Pretty strong and long. EMTs had quite a time getting him to come out of it and into the ambulance. This has never happened before. So Mom & Dad are at the hospital waiting for test results. Y’all think good thoughts for Dad, ok?
    BTW, when he came out of it, he seems fine. No problems with speech or mobility.

  20. Barb & Maggie
    12:34 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Bear, I am being pretty good. I can now lay outside for awhile and not bark my head off. I did do one bad thing though. Jackson had these toys over here, and he had a little wooden man that he left out on the rug right next to my bone. Naturally I thought it was mine to chew on. Barb put it in this box in the living room with a bunch of other pieces, then closed the lid. I used my nose and open the box, then I just took that one little man out (wasn’t he mine?) and I proceeded to chew him into little tiny toothpick size pieces. Jackson said I am in BIG trouble and need a time out, what ever that is!

  21. BearSpiritDog
    12:37 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Gus&BooBear: Prayers and Good thoughts are coming your way. Thank Dog your dad is okay! Please keep us informed of his test results.

  22. BearSpiritDog
    12:39 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Magpie: It is understandable how you thought that little man was yours and took it for your own. I would have done the same.

  23. Siber-H
    12:42 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Prayers and good thoughts for your dad. As Bear said, please keep us informed. We know people that have had one seizure like that, then never had another one. We pray this will be true for your dad.

    Maggie, Possession is 9 points of canine law. The little man was yours.

  24. Barb & Maggie
    12:55 pm on September 25th, 2012

    G & B, All good thoughts coming your way for your dad. Keep us informed, ok?

    Siber and Bear, You guys are totally right about that little man being mine. Barb was a bit amazed that I could find that one piece in a big box with about 100 pieces in it. That’s because she doesn’t have my nose. Snicker.

    Safe travels, Staff. Does Dawson go home after you get there?

  25. SnowBella
    12:56 pm on September 25th, 2012

    G&BB: Prayers have been prayed and will continue.

  26. SnowBella
    12:58 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Maggie: I’m amazed Jackson got a hold of your toy in the first place.

    Where is our friend KirbyT?

  27. Barb & Maggie
    1:27 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Hope Melanie and Zoe are doing ok today.

  28. OleyHowlers
    1:37 pm on September 25th, 2012

    G&BB, prayers from PA too.

    We agree with Siber on Canine Law.

  29. Rose
    2:07 pm on September 25th, 2012

    G&BB, strong and loving prayers are coming at your dad from Westchester. Keep us up to date.

  30. Rose
    2:08 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Staff: Safe and happy trails to you.

  31. Rose
    2:14 pm on September 25th, 2012

    SiberH and Bear, thank you for your good wishes. The Smoochers are a powerful healing force, even if their methods are a little unorthodox.

    Right before the lights go out and the lighning bolts start, I always think of all youse guys, the best friends I could ever have.

  32. B.Stover
    2:44 pm on September 25th, 2012

    I’ll be thinking about you tomorrow Rose. Post when you can.

  33. Belle Starr
    2:45 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Wose: My four-legged says we will be waiting for you when you come home from work. We are going to blur this afternoon. Masquers and I will wait at your place while Luna picks up Kat. My mama said something about me staying with Masquers and untrustworthy. Not sure why because I think Masquers is very trustworthy.

  34. Kat
    3:05 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Wose, I was ready to leave, but the yummy chummies in my briefcase have magically disappeared. I gotta run out for more. Be back in a flash!

  35. Masquers
    3:05 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Text from BSD regarding computer freeze-ups and slow response. Advised him I have a call into Microsoft Tech Support and am waiting to hear back.
    Belle Starr: What’s this you say? I’m sure you misunderstood her meaning.

  36. Mollypop's Mom
    3:10 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Gus&Boo – I hope all goes well with your Dad.

    Here’s a picture of Sammie. The camera got stuck in her face and she put her ears back!

  37. Mollypop's Mom
    3:14 pm on September 25th, 2012

    This is at the end of the day where we’re driving Sam’s girl back to her dorm. Sam is filthy dirty and exhausted.

  38. Barb & Maggie
    3:28 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Aah, Sammie, you are so cute, and you don’t look dirty to me.

  39. B.Stover
    3:30 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Sam is a cutie even when she’s exhausted (and college can be very exhausting).

  40. Barb & Maggie
    4:33 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Some lucky girl has a Louis Vuitton bag!

  41. Mollypop's Mom
    4:45 pm on September 25th, 2012

    MagPie – Sam’s Girl works at Wegmans (they gave her a scholarship too) and saves her money. She was in Paris for spring break and bought the bag there with her own money.

  42. Daniellabelle
    4:58 pm on September 25th, 2012

    What a wonderful time we had last night at White Birch Books!

    I came home and started reading to my puppers. She showed her appreciation by smiling so much her lips caught on her teeth.

  43. Belle Starr
    5:09 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Masquers: The exact words my four-legged said while on the phone with my two-legged were, and I quote, “Yes, I agree. Untrustworthy indeed. I will make sure Belle stays with Masquers while I fetch Kat.” Masquers, I did not want you to find out about your not to be trusted and misbehaving ways like this, but you are still my favorite katdog. Ever.

  44. BearSpiritDog
    5:39 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Belle Starr: Your favorite katdog says something about the eye of the beholder or the ear of the listener or something like that…whatever it was has slipped my mind.

    Gah! Another beautiful photo. They all look wonderful except for ours. Even little Sammie, exhausted and on her way to college took a great picture. This is very sad.

  45. Wose
    5:40 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Oh, Sammie, you look so cute! I love your special college girl sweater

  46. Wose
    5:45 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Kat, I hope too many yummy chummies don’t put you over the weight limit for blurring.

  47. Wose
    5:48 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Masquers: (whispering) Surely, Belle Starr heard wrong. You, my dear friend, are a gentlekat and a scholar. And the most excellent sax player.

  48. Masquers
    6:04 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Rose: Sax. Oh, no! You just reminded me…the Prof will be unable to play the guitar this visit because of his hurt paw. We will think of something else to lift your spirits.

  49. Siber-H
    6:05 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Sam, Very cute photos. I like the closeups.

    Hi Daniellabelle, and thanks for the picture.

    Bear, I liked your photo.

  50. SnowBella
    6:14 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Masquers: Pay no attention to Belle Starr. She misunderstood. She is being left in your care so a watchful eye can be kept on her while Luna is getting Kat. Have you ever seen the results of an unattended Belle Starr?—it’s not always pretty.

  51. Wose
    6:53 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Masquers, your purrs, Kat’s smooches, Luna great mothering, and my VBFF will surely put a smile on my face.

    Nurse Lisa can’t wait to meet you all! She is very nice, and I’m sure youse guys will love her.

  52. Princess Sam
    6:58 pm on September 25th, 2012

    A funny thing happened on my college trip. Mommy fell and slid down a hill. Daddy was already videoing before she fell so it was all recorded. Mommy even did a sort of flip at the end. she wasn’t hurt. My girl played that video a million times and poor Mommy slid down that hill every time!

  53. Masquers
    7:05 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Bella: Belle Starr and I watch out for each other. However, she naturally assumes she is in charge.

  54. Masquers
    7:09 pm on September 25th, 2012

    And, being the kool kat I am, she will never hear differently from me.

  55. Wose
    7:32 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Early to bed, early to rise….I have a 7am appointment with some lightning bolts.
    The Smmochers are tucking me in. Party time for the Prof and the gang!

  56. Melanie
    7:43 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Hello All, Good licks and tail wags going to Gus and BooBear’s Dad.

    Take care Wose. Great pictures today.

    Safe travels Staff.

    Hello to Daniellealbelle! Isn’t OFA great?

    Things are still hard here. We all touch base everyday. Add to Random Acts of Crying . . Random Acts of Tearing Up.

    Through it all the Pack has been great.

  57. Barb & Maggie
    8:02 pm on September 25th, 2012

    MPM, Your girl is a hard worker, and LV bags are classic, so it was a good purchase. Barb’s best bag is Coach, which is pretty classic too.

    Barb is so excited. Her bedroom carpet is being installed tomorrow, so she can get her bedroom set up and actually sleep in her bed every night. I, of coures, will be cuddled up at her feet, or maybe sharing a pillow.

  58. Mollypop's Mom
    8:22 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Melanie – It’s good to hear from you. Please keep in contact because you know how we all worry.

  59. Tupper and Gilly
    8:24 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Guess what- guess what. Our whole kitchen smells of homemade dog cookies. We ran out FOUR DAYS ago and have had to make due with plain old milkbones since then. Someone call the SPCA!

    Gus and BooBear – your Dad will be in our prayer tonight. Do let us know how he is doing. And how your Mom is too. Bet she was some kind if scared.

    Wose – you will be in the prayer too.

    Greetings Daniellabelle. This here blog is a bunch if friendly voices. And the occasional grumpy pug. Hope you will jump in and join the conversation.

    Anyone else a NCIS fan? SPOILER ALERT –
    We were happy to see that Ducky is still part if the cast.

    Our best wishes to G&BB’s dad as well.

    Mom met with the big boss today and got unfired. She is still unemployed, but now not blacklisted. I am SO glad that I work from home.

    We enjoy reading about other people out and about doing interesting things. Hello to Daniellabelle.

  65. Princess Sam
    9:24 pm on September 25th, 2012

    That is a good photo of you, Rio.

    Thanks for checking in with us, Melanie.

    I hope we hear from Gus&BooBear soon.

  70. BearSpiritDog
    9:46 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Rio! Is that a photo or a painting of you? Excellent.

  71. Barb & Maggie
    9:49 pm on September 25th, 2012

    T & G, we like Ducky too. We thought he was a goner!
    Good thoughts for all who are under the quilt tonight. Good night all.

  72. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:50 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Bear!…Why don’t you convince those guys to break open their piggy-bank and buy a new computer for you and Maskers?…grunt!…It took a lot of pain and suffering before my friend finally broke down and did it. Now she is really happy about it…snort!

  73. Princess Sam
    9:53 pm on September 25th, 2012

  75. Staff
    9:55 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Gus and BooBear, Good wishes going to your Mom and Dad. We are sorry to hear about his seizure and hope he gets a good report from the Doctors.

    Melanie nice to hear from you.

    Daniellabelle great photo! Nice to meet you. I am glad someone remembered their camera while meeting Spence.

    Yes Dawson will leave soon. She is training me back in. Tomorrow I meet the NURSE!

    Sam I am I hope your Mom is OK after her historic tumble.

    Rose That is too early for lightning bolts. Can’t you do it after lunch? I always like my appts after lunch. I hate getting up early.

  76. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:55 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Sammie!…Long lost twins!…snorkel!…Wait, how old are you again?…heh!…Can twins be born years and years apart? I do not know….sniff!

  77. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:57 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Staff!…We here were just wondering if you made the journey okay…snort!…Since you are not complaining, you must have had an uneventful trip…grunt!

  78. Tenzing
    10:03 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Rio: I thought you were my long lost twin?

  79. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:06 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Lost!….Maybe we three, meaning Sammie, myself and Tenzing are triplets?…snort!…That would explain quite a lot and absolutely nothing at the same time….heh!

  80. Gus & BooBear
    10:06 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers. Dad is feeling much better but feels like he got run over by a pack of Newfs. Still in the hospital running tests. Mom is really pretty freaked. Please keep the good thoughts coming.

    Wose, we’ll be thinking about you in the morning. Glad the Smoochers are there to take care of you, but hate that you have to keep having this done.

    Macy, good for your Mom! Glad the big boss saw her side of the story was valid.

    Melanie and Zoe, hang tough. We’re happy to hear even a little from you.


  81. Tenzing
    10:15 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Rio: I agree. Everything makes sense and I’ve never been more confused.

    G&BB: the quilt is tucked over your mom’s shoulders and over your pop while he rests.

    I hope CHH knows she is not far from the thoughts of those on this here blog. CHH, check in when you can.

  82. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:21 pm on September 25th, 2012

    CHobbit!…She is so tiny I worry about her getting squished in that there Quilt…grunt!…Youse guys give her some room…sniff! …I’ve never been in that Quilt so I have no idea how big it is, but if it’s anything like my warm soft bed, it is just large enough to hold me and all my toyz…snorkel!

    Ravens: I’ve been feeding the ravens (actually crows) the last few days…bread soaked in bacon grease. Today on my bike ride I saw two of them synchronized flying, dipping and diving in tandem.

    Melanie: Thanks for checking in.

    Gus and Boobear: Hope the doctors find nothing wrong with your dad.

    Rose: Early morning lightning bolts! Hopefully you will still be half asleep.

    Hoorah: Staff is here. I must finish packing.

  84. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:34 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Tag-Team!….Sisters!…snort!….My friend wishes she had a tag-team partner, although now that her mother has recovered from shampooing the whole damned house by herself earlier this summer…grump!…She is feeling a lot better and is getting ready for a big long dreary bus ride to Iowa…gruffle!…Who in their right mind wants to do that? Her mother of course. Me, my friend and her brother never want to go back there again, so poor mother has to go alone on a big bus sometime next month. Someone tried to talk her out of it, but she bought the ticket (round trip dammit!) …..sniff!…I feel car-sick just thinking about it…urp!

  85. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:39 pm on September 25th, 2012

    Crap!…It’s only the 5th inning but someone says she is too exhausted to stay up any longer…wuffle!…So we are packing it in and plan to listen to some of the game on the radio, right before our heads hit the pillow….snuffle!….Goodnight!

  86. SnowBella
    12:56 am on September 26th, 2012

    Rio: I may have nudged the quilt towards your friend a time or two when she’s had an especially bad day at work.

    Rose: I’ll be thinking of you tomorrow. Take care of yourself. You’re in good paws.

    Night all.

  87. Wose
    6:15 am on September 26th, 2012

    G&B, thanks for the good wishes. Thinking of your dad, and sending prayers out to him!

    Bella: Smoochers and I are on the way.
