“Here’s a cool new site,” Spence says.

“How about we post a link?” says Admin. “Then if we still have that comment bug today, commenters can comment over there!”

“Not quite following you,” says Spence.


Welcome Ginger, the Snow Babies, Scout.

    Good morning. That is a great review! And the website looks mighty promising.

    Mom had to take an emergency day off today. As she was leaving for work, she stopped in the barn to check on horses, and our Shiek is not feeling so well. She had to get the vet here, and now she said she wants to stick around to keep her eye on Shiek today.

    We have the box, and we can post. But when we hit the Submit button, the screen goes white, and we have to reenter the website.

    I will have to leave the review for later. Woke up and I am behind my times.

    Sorry to hear about Sheik. Would you like the Newf Pack to come over and help?

    9:27 am on August 16th, 2011

    Oley: Hope that Shiek is feeling tip-top soon!

    Hi Melanie!

    Hi Mollypop!

    Good Morning to All!

    @#$%! NNB!

    Same thing is happening to me too, Oley! GRUMP!

  8. OleyHowlers
    9:50 am on August 16th, 2011

    Was missing the box there for awhile. Grump.

    Thanks for the good wishes. Our 30-year-old Shiek is the strongest, toughest guy you ever want to meet. We just know he will pull himself together. We are all going back to the barn now to see if he can eat yet. bbl

    I don’t want to comment on the LitStack site but on Chet’s blog. Not a good idea Admin.

    I’m sorry to hear about Shiek, Oley Howlers. That is a grand age for a horse. Hope things go well.

    Good morning all.

  10. Rose
    10:08 am on August 16th, 2011

    I agree, B. Admin should work on getting Chet’s blog back in order.

  11. OleyHowlers
    10:11 am on August 16th, 2011

    We think a comment on LitStack is very good PR for the C&B books. The review was very good in our opinion so we said so over there.

    Mom gave Shiek’s food back to him, but he is not interested in eating yet. We told her he is tired and just needs to rest a bit.

    10:15 am on August 16th, 2011

    LitStack!….I don’t think they would like me very much out on Litstack!…heh!… Plus, my friend told me I couldn’t or else…snort!…Here is what I would post if I could though….heh!

    Weeks!…Weeks and weeks of fun! They are going to review all of Spencers books and even ask the guy some questions. I hope they ask some different questions and not the same old questions. Like, “Where did you get the idea to write about Chet?”….snort!….How many times do we have to hear that story…grunt! …So hopefully, this guy Sam Spokony will ask some other in-depth questions, like “How tall are you anyways?” or “Has your head always been like that?” …snort!

  13. OleyHowlers
    10:22 am on August 16th, 2011

    Rio! Post it over there!

  14. Masquers
    10:25 am on August 16th, 2011

    Sticking my paw in to check the temperature…nope! still not right. Hope Mike Baker gets back from vacation soonest.

    The review! Still too lengthy for our taste, but at least the reviewer knows Chet.

    Howlers: Hope your Shiek is feeling better very soon. Please keep us posted.

    10:32 am on August 16th, 2011

    Ollie!…No…snort!…I dare not. It would make Spencer mad…sniff!…He might kick me off Chet’s blog….wuffle!

    10:35 am on August 16th, 2011

    Melanie, did you know that the prez was in Decorah yesterday? Wonder if he wanted to visit those Eagles, who we think must be long gone.

  17. Melanie
    10:38 am on August 16th, 2011

    I think there’s a steady BB in which you can not post pictures. And a rolling BB . . .
    I have seen folks post when I wasn’t able to and then I can post and folks say at that time they couldn’t. Sort of like rolling black outs.

    I have an idea . . . IF YSAS is not working on September 8th, I’m going to try to get him to go see Spencer in Brooklyn.

    Staff? Could you make me a Plunderer’s Badge but says something about him YSAS?

    Back to work. . .

  18. Barb & Maggie
    10:49 am on August 16th, 2011

    We are not having good luck with the blog this morning. The box was missing a few minutes ago. But we want to sy hi, and we will keep reading, just maybe not posting.

  19. Siber-H
    11:10 am on August 16th, 2011

    I couldn’t post last night so I couldn’t say:

    Fellow Siberians, Welcome back from vacation and our hearts are with Sheik and you guys. We hope he feels better soon.

    Rebecca, That sounds very promising about the dogumentary. We hope we get to see the new video. Ah Humm I thought Wolfie’s idea of mentioning us is a good one. How many mushers have a famous, talented author cheering for them.

    Mom says that if Rio is not allowed to go over to that place on the link, I’m not either. For crying out loud.

    Rio, Great ending to the Rockies game last night! WOO WOO

  20. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:15 am on August 16th, 2011

    Wha!?….snort!….The Rockies won? We gave up on them when the bases were loaded and it was 3 to 4 Fishies ahead ….grunt!….Woooooo!…I can’t believe they pulled that one out of their butts caps…heh!

    Melanie!…What’s this about Spencer being in Brooklyn?…grunt!….Where did you find this out anyways?…sniff!

  21. Mollypop
    11:20 am on August 16th, 2011

    Rio – It’s in the facebookie box at the top of this page.

  22. OleyHowlers
    11:22 am on August 16th, 2011

    Rio, look up near the top on the left, where the Facebook posts show up here. “Reading and Doggy Drive” with Spencer Quinn.

    We sure hope he comes to our area where our great Humane Society is looking forward to combining forces with him for the good of the homeless pets and for the great PR it would be for C&B.

    Its very windy here and only 72. Mom just put on her sweats! We think it is starting to feel like Husky weather.

    We echo what Wolfie and Siber say about the dogumentary. Try to work in Spencer Quinn, Chet the Dog, and us Plunderers, Rebecca. That could make for some unique and interesting tidbits, if we say so ourselves.

    11:24 am on August 16th, 2011

    Good morning!
    This morning I saw no comment box and no comments.

    Welcome back to the Howlers and here’s hoping Sheik feels better soon.

    Rio and friend gave up on the Rockies!? That never happens.

  24. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:27 am on August 16th, 2011

    Brooklyn!….dammit!…. I wish he would post the details on this here buggy blog…sniff!… I’m not allowed to go out on facebookie…wuffle! … There is a Brooklyn, Iowa and that is where my friend and I will be on Sept. 8th…woooo!….Maybe we will finally get to meet up with ole pointy headed Spencer….snorkel!

  25. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:33 am on August 16th, 2011

    Dawson!… I saw your comment out on LitStack!…snort!…Maybe we should all post a comment out there and blow Sam Spokony’s mind…heh!…Besides, he did not mention Chets Blog…grunt!…Although, with this NBB maybe now is not the right time to introduce it too new guys…heh!

  26. Masquers
    11:35 am on August 16th, 2011

    Vacation! This one seems to have all the ingredients of a National Lampoon Family type – what with the brother, mother and sister in one car. It is always a Close Encounter traveling with others on road trips. Rio, thankfully you will be along to keep things from getting out of control. But, pay me no mind. I’m sure it will turn out to be a wonderful get-away. Heh, heh.

    Bella: Good news about that request for additional footage! We agree to mentioning the Plunderers. It definitely would give you the added advantage of a devoted fan base and set your kennel apart from the others.

  27. OleyHowlers
    11:41 am on August 16th, 2011

    Hey! More comments on LitStack! One from a “Friend of a pug”…hmmm. That one was so well-written it brought tears to Mom’s eyes.

    Whenever Chet speaks of Bernie as the smartest human in the room, it makes us wonder if Bernie could possibly be as smart as our Mom & Pop, who are very very smart and fun and funny and brave and wise…yada yada yada. Do any of you know of smart humans? In our experience, they are few and far between.

  28. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:56 am on August 16th, 2011

    Comments!….LitStack is set-up kind of cool…heh!… One can comment on others comments if one is so inclined….snorkel! ….Stover really needs to put her two cents worth out there….wuffle!

  29. OleyHowlers
    12:16 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Rio, Stover already commented on Dawson’s.

    Hey, here is a link to a story in the New Yorker detailing Bin Laden’s “defeat”. It mentions the dog, Cairo, a lot too.

  30. Siber-H
    12:58 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Mom had to do errands so while she was gone I looked at the LitStack website. That is a nice website. Maybe I can sneak back over there later and say something.

    Interesting article, fellow Sibers. Mom just read Seal Team Six…she liked it. There was a special forces dog on that chopper that was blown out of the sky. It is so sad that all those lives were lost.

  31. Masquers
    1:05 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Drat! My last comment just flew off into siberspace!

    As I was saying: Howlers and anyone else who missed it, a while back Staff gave us information to order autographed copies of The Dog Who from Wellesley Books in Wellesley, MA. Contract Rebecca at 1-781-431-1160 prior to September 14th.

    This was great news for those of us who are not FOTM can have our books personally autographed by Spencer Quinn himself. I also pre-ordered from Amazon to receive a copy by priority mail by the 8th of September.

    Thanks for the link to the New Yorker – Cairo article.

    Blog is fixed! Thanks, Mike!

  35. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:20 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Spence!….He finally got wise and has his own name on his comment instead of piggy-backing on Chet’s all the time….heh!….Spencer, you would be proud of your plunderers over on LitStack. The comments are already up to 10 and counting…..snorkel!

  36. Barb & Maggie
    2:35 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Glad it is fixed, has been a stressful morning.

    We are reading Hiss of Dweath by Rita Mae Brown. 1st book of hers that we are reading. Any one else read her books?

    Also, have coming tomorrow from Netflix – Ameereka. One of the same actresses as was in The Visitor. Anyone see it or have comments?

  37. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:39 pm on August 16th, 2011

    LitStack!…I’m just glad it’s not me out there making a complete fool of myself this time…heh!snort! …I’m going to go hide now….sniff!

  38. Melanie
    2:53 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Thanks Mike! Cool, the BB is fixed and so is my internet from the upstairs computer!!

    Riö, your friend did not make a fool of herself. Her comment was well written and from the heart! She even said something nice about you.

  39. OleyHowlers
    3:05 pm on August 16th, 2011

    She said something nice about Rio??? You mean his sense of humor? heh heh

    Why doesn’t Spence have an avatar?

    I like the idea of including the Plunderers and CandB in the additional footage—in fact, it is something I already thought of doing. The casting director emailed me a couple of weeks ago and said they might want more footage and to stay tuned as they were still making decisions.

    The email we recieved a couple of days ago asked for a re-enactment of me following AJ’s race. This will require cheesecake and fleece which is no problem, but I lack acting skills—I’m no YSAS.

    The casting director called me this morning to give some further direction on the additional footage.

    Are we adopting Lipstick—that’s was I first read when I saw today’s post. I don’t know that I’ll be able to keep up and pass Porfessor Stover’s class.

  42. Masquers
    3:17 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Yeh, Spence, why don’t you have an avatar for the blog?

  43. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:23 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Avatar!…Guys, he may not want an Avatar because of.. um…well, because of his head…snort!

  44. Rose
    3:27 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Is it safe?

  45. Rose
    3:29 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Rio: You certainly have a head obsession. Is it just Spence’s head, or do you obsess over all heads equally? Just wondering.

  46. Rose
    3:31 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Rio: Does your friend have a nice head? What about her mom?

  47. Masquers
    3:33 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Hi Rose! It may be an inside joke.

  48. OleyHowlers
    3:39 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Update on Shiek: He has now finished his breakfast (!!!) and is proceeding to eat his supper.

    T&G: We never did post a picture of Watching Eyes hanging next to the hearth in the Summer Kitchen Tavern. To the right of the Eyes is the cabinet where the beer and wine are kept. So its appropriate, isn’t it, to have those eyes watching all of our friends helping themselves?

  49. Masquers
    3:51 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Howlers (and Buddy&TC too!) Purrrfect!

  50. Masquers
    3:53 pm on August 16th, 2011

    What did the vet say about Shiek? Just a bug? So happy to hear he’s okay!

  51. Rose
    4:03 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Thanks, Masquers. So many things go over my head!

    Oley: It is nice to hear that Shiek is on the mend. BTW: The Watching Eyes look beautiful hanging in their very appropriate spot.

  52. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:07 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Rose!…Is your head flat?….snuffle!

  53. B.Stover
    4:16 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Thank you for fixing Chet’s Blog Mike Baker.

    I’ve been working on class prep. I’ll only have two classes in the fall but they’re different classes so two preps. I’ve been working on which Victorian texts to include in the Vic/Modern lit class.

    I have a question regarding the cookbook: If we have the pdf put on the dishlicker site, the Plunderers can download it and print it as each prefers. Rebecca can put the pdf on Snowhook’s site also and they can sell it and keep any profits. Does this sound like a good plan?

  54. Rose
    4:30 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Rio: My avatar is right above yours. Does it look flat to you?

  55. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:38 pm on August 16th, 2011


  56. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    4:45 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Stover — I think that is an excellent suggestion. I presume in regards to the Snowhook web page what Rebecca would do would be to place a description of the cookbook (with pictures of the cover and perhaps a couple sample pages) in the Musher’s Mercantile Shop and then send the PDF to anyone who orders it. Wookie

  57. Buddy & T.C.
    4:51 pm on August 16th, 2011

    The vet thinks that most likely Shiek ate a weed in the pasture that made him salivate profusely. He was concerned because he was not eating though, so he tubed him because that fluid drip can also be a sign of Choke. He got the tube to the stomach and drained nothing but liquid…no food appeared to be stuck there. He said that he gets lots of calls about horses dripping lots of fluid from their mouths this time of year, because of the weeds that come up in all the dry weather. Last night, Mom put the horses out on a pasture that they hadn’t been on for 30 days, so it had grown quite well. During the dry weather, only weeds were growing though. We aren’t sure if she should put Shiek out in that pasture again this evening. Pondering…

  58. OleyHowlers
    5:01 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Rio is killing us. LOL. Big city blog indeed…he won’t even go on FB !

  59. Masquers
    5:18 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Rose: It went over our head also. Rio: Out of kat kuriousity what is the story behind this?
    B: Sounds good to me. Also plan to turn the pdf into a hardbound copy, pursuant your suggestion, using Sharedbooks.

  60. dawson
    5:18 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Watching Eyes looks very alert at his post.
    I’m glad Sheik is feeling better.
    R & R: Rio’s head looks much flatter than Rose’s.

  61. Mollypop
    5:25 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Rose and Masquers – Rio has described Spence’s physical features many times and they all mention a very pointy head.

  62. Mollypop
    5:32 pm on August 16th, 2011

    I need to add that is why Rio is not allowed on facebookie, or anywhere other than right here, because Rio is, well er, Rio is Rio.

  63. Masquers
    5:35 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Mollypop: True. But when/why did he first come up this idea?

  64. Barb & Maggie
    5:47 pm on August 16th, 2011

    No one commented if they have read any of the Rita Mae Brown/Sneaky Pie Brown series. Not sure if I like the way her 4 leggeds talk to each other, compared to the way Chet communicates with his readers. Haven’t gotten too far into the book, but it is pretty good so far.

  65. B.Stover
    6:05 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Barb: I know that I read a few of the Brown books but I don’t remember which. They were good.

    Masquers: At some point Spence himself said something about having a pointed head and that is where Rio picked it up. I don’t remember when.

  66. B.Stover
    6:12 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Masquers: This is the first sentences from Chet’s blog post of February 3, 2010:

    Spence and Admin are still kicking the biopsy question around, whatever that might mean. Bernie says that sometimes he wants to crack their pointy heads together.

  67. Melanie
    6:16 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Pointed head and big hands. I don’t remember when but Riö’s been talking about them for some time!

    YSAS, Hamlet and Ophelia are all coming up at the end of August. They were going to go camping, but trying to find a site got very difficult. They are spending the time here and we told them if they want to camp there is always the orchard!

    Our payment? Moving some rocks from the pool and making us a dinner.

    While they are here the town Country Fair is going on, they are looking forward to that.

    Plus hiking and taking the kayaks out. They should have a great time and Ophelia likes the idea of bathrooms being very close!

  68. Barb & Maggie
    6:16 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Bee, Wikapedia refers to Rita Mae Brown’s series as cozies, which I know you don’t like. Donna Andrew’s books were called cozies as well. Melanie had sent me one of those and I really liked it.

  69. Tupper and Gilly
    7:01 pm on August 16th, 2011

    wahoo!!!! We are in the land of Internet access AND the dreaded BB is fixed!
    Sitting in the anthill hubbub of Chicago O’Hare airport waiting for the flight to Hartford. Actually, we are praying like mad that we get bumped off the flight for a couple of reasons. First- that would give us first class tickets on the next flight, plus free tickets for next year, and they would put us in a nice hotel for the night. whispering-the second reason is that Leonard isn’t feeling too well-bit if a stomach bug, which is NOT convenient on an airplane. And did you know that you can’t buy imodium ANYWHERE in ANY airport?!?! Sheesh)
    So cross paws, everyone, that they have oversold our flight…..

  70. Melanie
    7:09 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Good luck with all of that, Royals’ Mum!

  71. Gus and BooBear
    7:10 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Maggie, tell Barb that our Mom has read all the Sneaky Pie Brown books and really liked the series. Very different from CandB, but the main characters love of animals is a very important element in the stories. They made a movie of one of them that was AWFUL. Mom has not read any other books by Rita Mae Brown but does recommend the Sneaky Pie series.

  72. Barb & Maggie
    7:20 pm on August 16th, 2011

    G & B The one Barb is reading, Hiss of Death is the most recent book in the series. Should she go back and start with the first one, or are they stand-alones?

  73. Tupper and Gilly
    7:21 pm on August 16th, 2011

    So we “deplaned” at C8 and had to get to C19, which is MUCH further than it sounds. Just got settled in when they announced a gate change to C9….
    Oh well, at least it’s not Atlanta….
    Howlers- very relieved to hear that the Mighty Sheik is well, may his mane grow ever longer.
    Barb and Maggie- Tup and Gilly highly recommend the Sneaky Pie series. Basil and Sage are partial to them too. They like Murphy’s Kattitude
    Melanie- get ready for a marathon phone call. We need lots of updates Nd details.

  74. Rose
    7:46 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Rio, I have a lovely, perfectly shaped head.
    Let’s see what your head looks like when I donate my charcoal drawing of you for the pre-holiday Snowhook auction. I’m sure your portrait will create a bidding frenzy. Then again, maybe not…is there anyone out there except your friend who would want the portrait? Maybe your friend’s mom. (Heh, heh)

  75. dawson
    7:57 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Rose: I need a new face on my dart board. I’d be bidding on a charcoal drawing of the pug! 😉

    Joke, it’s a joke!

  76. Mollypop
    8:02 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Rose – Did you do the portrait of Rio asleep sitting up?

    8:05 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Today is the anniversary of Elvis’ death. Dead? I didn’t know he was dead. I just saw him in Walmart last week.

  78. Masquers
    8:10 pm on August 16th, 2011

    B: Thanks for the explanation. It has been on my mind for s while now.

    Royals’ Mum: Sounds like you’ll be taking that flight after all. We only get bumped when it’s a huge inconvenience.

    Barb: Haven’t read those books yet, or seen the movie you mentioned. The Visitor is in our Netflix queue. Now reading Started Early, Took My Dog by Kate Atkinson. I like her style of writing.

  79. Redbone Hound
    8:16 pm on August 16th, 2011

    to quote a great movie – Elvis is NOT dead-he just went home

    Today is a day of mourning down here. It’s got me All Shook Up.
    Cuz I Ain’t Nuthin But a Hound Dog

  80. Tupper and Gilly
    8:19 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Well, it will be good to get home. The Plane is boarding, so we are on our way.
    Talk to you all tomorrow.
    We’re gonna go fly the friendly skies….

  81. Kirby T. Penworthy

    Hey, y’all! Loooong day at work for Mom today. A new middle school in town opened yesterday and they’re not giving the kids any books. Instead, they all have been issued i-paws. And they’re telling all the kids to go to the library to do stuff with their i-paws because the library has wi-fi. And they’re also telling the kids that the librarians can solve all of their problems, only they’re still learning about i-paws themselves! Plus, some of the stuff requires downloading software, but the library’s public computers don’t allow that. Like the kid who set up his i-paw, then promptly forgot his password. The school told him to go to the library to reboot — so his mom and dad are desperately trying to figure out how to do that. Mom didn’t think they could, but she called downtown just in case. She was right — no rebooting allowed. What a mess!!!

    I am sitting in the airport waiting to fly home. I didn’t get puggraded ar free tickets either just like the Royals’ mum.

    Oley Howlers: It’s good to hear that Sheik ate his dinner, and even better that you ‘listened’ to him when he told you he wasn’t feeling well.

    I will send the cookbook to Dishlickers when I get home tonight if it’s not too late.

    Maggie, we would definitely recommend reading the series in order. Although each has a mystery to solve, the characters are developed throughout and there is a storyline involving the main character, Harry and her vet Fair that starts in book 1 and continues. Mom actually didn’t know a new book was out and will have to get it. Like we said earlier, different that Chet and Bernie, but very good reading. You get used to the animals “talking” to each other and the line is never crossed where they talk to the humans.

    Mollypop: I am at work of the picture of him asleep, but I may have to reconsider. That picture of him sleep sitting is pretty funny.

    Dawson: A Rio dartboard…You always make me laugh!

    Pointy!… My head is not pointy because Pugs heads are not meant to be pointy…sniff!…It was just a month or so after I showed up here when Spencer and Admin had a bout of quarreling and all Spencer’s disabilities came spewing out….heh!…His pointy head, how short he is and what a bad typist he is – the large hands are from some photos posted one time when a couple of Plunderers met him in Houston…wheeze!… His paws are huge! How the heck does he type at all is what I want to know …grunt! .…Tippity…tap ….tippity… tap… No wander it takes a whole year for a new book to come out…sneeze! …Remember when he was going to be on a Twitter interview and Admin said Spencer was worried because he couldn’t type very fast?…heh! …I think a few were able to follow the Twitter interview and report back here to us…snort!… We learned maybe two or three things in about 2 hours. What fun that was!

    Elvis!…At Walmart!…heh!snort!heh!….That was a good one Molly…chorkel!

    That is a really, really flat head.

    9:47 pm on August 16th, 2011

    Rio: That explains the pointy head remarks about Spence. He’ll no doubt never live it down.

    B&M: While waiting for Started Early I read When Will There Be Good News. I believe the first book she wrote was Case Histories.

    Mom will never learn. She left the room for a minute and returned to find her supper had disappeared! Need I say more? A certain canine is also nowhere to be found.

    Medical update: Meashka has been put in charge of caring for and looking after Shiek (hey thats how he spells his name). Mom was so impressed with her studious medical aptitude when the vet was here, she said Meashka could handle things. Meashka is eying up the garden hose in case more tubing is required.

    Good nite to all.

    So glad Shiek is headed back to good health. His nurse should take very good care of him.

    Masquers, is Trigger at the home you are house-sitting or does he live with you full time?

    Hi, I am still alive! Even after an unauthorized walkabout in the dark last night. Mom was freaking out, since dad was not here to help her find me. Find me? I was not lost. I could see her all the time, heh heh, black dog in the dark.

    HOME HOME HOME! Mama is home and giving us lots of hugs and kisses. And next time they go away, we get to go too! But now she’s HOME. YIPPEEE!

    Hey- now that Mama is home will someone please explain to us what the hell-oops, we mean what the heck is going on? We are just catching up and first Nasty Nattie stole our avatar and then SNOWHOOK is using it!!! That’s OUR avatar!! We have been trying to post for days to tell you what trouble….ummmm…interesting things we were doing while she was away, but nothing would post. Now we can post and see everyone using OUR picture! The NERVE!!!!

    Home at last, at last. I had to meet AJ to drive the dog truck to the mechanics tonight…what a long day it has been.

    Basil & Sage: Wait, wait, wait a mukluk minute—I don’t even know how to do my own avatar let alone steal an avatar. You are right though; I went back and read my earlier post, and sure enough Basil and Sage are where my pretty little anonymous outline should be on display.

    I just emailed Dishlickers to Dishlickers. According the fancy lingo Liz used, it is in a low res format but seems just fine by my untrained eyed.

    Welcome home to you too Miss Rebecca. Traveling does tire you out, doesn’t it?
    Now, about our avatar. We don’t understand it a bit either – maybe tomorrow MollyPop can figure it out.
    Meanwhile it is 2 am here – Mama says we gotta go to bed.
    Talk to you later.

    Thanks Rebecca! I haven’t been able to catch up lately, too busy at work. If anyone has any questions about the format of the cookbook, let me know – maybe via my SDD. It should be fine for everyone to grab and take to a printer.
