Malls And Us

We spent yesterday in malls. Here’s a mall visit from Dog On It:

We drove to the North Valley Mall. Bernie circled round and round a huge lot, finally found a spot. He was muttering to himself. Bernie hated malls, hated shopping of any kind. We got out, walked toward the entrance. Bernie stopped in front of a sign. I couldn’t read the words, but there was also a picture of one of my guys with a thick line drawn through him.

“Uh-oh,” said Bernie.

We went back to the car. Bernie drove around again until he found just about the only space in the whole lot that lay in the shade of a tree.

“Stay here,” he said, giving me a pat. “Be back as soon as I can.”

I was steaming, but what could I do? It wasn’t Bernie’s fault. I growled a bit, then leaned down and gnawed at my paw for awhile, felt a little better. Outside people went back and forth.

“Hey, Mom. Look at the cute dog.”

“Don’t go too close.”

“But can’t I pat him?”

“Don’t be ridiculous. I’m allergic.”

A word I hated.

“And see the way he yawned like that? Means he’s aggressive. Hurry up.”

First of all, I wasn’t yawning, just stretching my mouth, always nice and relaxing. Second, I wasn’t feeling aggressive: she must have been confusing me with hippos, ugly brutes I’d seen on the Discovery channel and wanted no part of. I watched the distant doors of the mall. Bernie didn’t come out. I lay down. A nap? Why not? I closed my eyes.

    Good Morning to All,
    Just a quick post for C. Harris. The message you missed was sent at 6:00 PM on Monday the 19th. If I don’t hear from you within a day or two, I’ll assume that you, like most of us, were too busy to catch it again today and will get back to you. Enjoy your day.

    Here’s a shot of me doing my last minute shopping on Friday.

    Good morning, all.

    Macy – whatever were you doing up so late last night, or was that up early this morning?

    TYB you are such a beauty.

    The first thing mom did this morning was step in wet kat barf. Yay, me.

    So she’s thinking about toffee for breakfast.

    xoxoxo

    Malls . . yuck.
    Wet Kat Barf . . . double yuck.

    Riö, I will read your comment from last night to YSAS when he gets up today. Probably sometime today . . . maybe . .

    Videos that will be on today . . . Claymation Christmas, Earnest Saves Christmas, Scrooged . . . going for laughter.

    Tomorrow morning will be the video of fireplace!

    Tyb: You are one handsome fellow—-handsome as Rio is evil. :)

    Merry Christmas Eve!

    Tyb, you’re looking good as always. I see the Knitwit hats behind you. I’m famous with my frog hat. I’m a star!

    Yes, it’s all about moi.

    We’re really to gather the gifts & go Due South.
    Good Morning All.

    Happy Christmas eve to All!

    Tyb: Please contact me at rwdelgado1959@gmail.com. Love your last minute shopping picture too.

    Masquers: The Artist is playing in a very few theatres in Westchester where I live. We actually saw it in a multiplex,although it is playing in a couple of art houses up here as well.

    Sam, you’re a star without your frog hat! I think the pictures you took with your sweater at your girl’s college were definitely star making material. How is your girl , by the way!

  10. Melanie
    9:53 am on December 24th, 2011

    I was so taken by TYB that I didn’t notice the hats! All are very good looking. Especially Sam with or without the hat.

    YSAS is up! We weren’t expecting that for hours. He is now out getting coffee. It’s some NYC thing. He can’t make his own coffee, he must go OUT to get coffee. Weird.

    Anyhoo, we are figuring out the next few days with all to get over to see Dan. This is so he’ll have plenty company during the weekend.

    I might be able to go see him today. lMy sister is going and if she drives I won’t be so tired and unable to do anything else today.

    Right now I’m printing Christmas cards. I made one for Jesse (our go-to guy) and Zoe saw it. I’m now making 10 more.

    OHHHH, almost forgot. Unable to burn CD’s from audible that can be heard in the car (have no idea why MollyPop’s mom) Zoë did an Ebay and the only set out there, made it yesterday!!! OTAS will have the CDS of The Dog Who!!!!!

    Christmas Eve for some and the fifth Night of Hanukkah for Wookie and others.
    It is a very comfortable 49 degrees this morning. Unusual temperatures this year.
    Tyb: You do your dad proud. As you do your last minute shopping, Blou greets us at the top.

  13. Rose
    10:42 am on December 24th, 2011

    Whitey-Lance is up top!!!!

    Masquers, you remind me to wish Wookie, and others Happy Hanukkah as well. Wishing the best regards to everyone.

    Rio: Are the gifts under the tree for you and Beau large???

    In sympathy of those who have stepped in wet kat barf this morning, I can remember the many, many times Kelly, my awesome kat left barf all over my first apartment.

    Melanie, we thought about your tail situation last night when we went out to see the most amazing synchronized light display ever. Oh, back to where I was. In one of the shop windows there was an electric menorah with pretty little blue “flames”.

    I was up so late because after the lights and dropping off the girls so they could eat their rabbit food and text their boyfriends (again and again) Hubs, Mother and I went to IHOP for a very satisfying pancake breakfast at 11:30. Then I started wandering around the internets and presto! It was past dark-thirty. Mr. is still sleeping and he went to bed a good two hours before me.

    S’ok, since all that is left to do is pick up 2 more gift cards and head to his family party. That is a mad house. Around 40 people including >6 kids, depending on who shows up. Mr.’s mom and dad live next door to the party, so we take turns going over with goodies for Dad. He won’t leave Mom for a minute to come to the party. She is in late stage Alzheimer’s, but has been doing pretty well lately. Our Angie is bringing her BF, so FINALLY we will get to meet him. Tomorrow we meet our Niki’s BF. Woohoo!

    REALLY sorry about the ad before this, but it is worth it. These guys are even more confused than me, lol.

    Hey Everybody! Lots of cooking going on. And when the fridge was open, we think we spied individual plates of mutloaf, orange-looking chips, and a pie. Has to be from Joe Paws Bakery…and has to be for us!!!!!! Hoping….

    Melanie – I don’t know what to say about the CD’s. I downloaded from Audible into iTunes and from there I made a copy on my iPhone and another on a usb drive. My MacAir doesn’t have a CD drive but that’s the only difference in the process.

  20. Mollypop's Mom
    11:20 am on December 24th, 2011

    Melanie – Also, the Audible FAQ’s say you can make a CD. Next time I suggest that you do a Live Chat on Audible. They’re very helpful.

    Mom doesn’t “do” malls and no dogs allowed in them. Mom might go in them if dogs were allowed.

    Ten degrees at the dog park this morning with wind and just perfect. We had two Siber girls visiting. They are from Austin TX and only here for the Holidays. With the cold and the snow, the Texas girls thought they were in Siber Heaven. I told them I was also a Texan.

    Rio, I am not watching the Broncos game today because of you know why.

    gah Macy’s link won’t open for me.

    Cute photo TYB

    Mom says she doesn’t know which is worse, stepping in cat barf when you get up or the fact that I got her up at 4 am because I had to go outside and poop. I came in and went back to sleep but mom stayed up.

  24. Rose
    12:02 pm on December 24th, 2011

    Rio: Thanks for the 12 Days of Christmas. You kept me laughing every day!!!

    SiberH: Lucky you. You have snow to play in! Today is cold in New York, but it is back to the 50’s tomorrow.

    Another early Christmas present for me. The signed copy of TFAT I won in the contest arrived!!!

    I just showed Bev (Mabella, I think she was coined by the Royals’ mum) the pictures from Friends of Chet. I pointed out all the Plunderers including quilt squares.

    I spoke with AJ last night. Word on the trail is that Belle Starr is insisting two things: 1) that WWBD stands for What Would Belle Do?, and 2) that it is a peice of jewelry only to be worn by her. Boy, is she in for a surprise when I get home and claim it for my own.

    Yes, I have forgotten to wish a Happy Hanukah along with my holiday wishes.

    Good morning…oh no…wait…its afternoon already! Yikes!!!!
    So much to do – so little time. But Mama wanted to make sure to put this up for all of you. She says that this past year has been so much better for the support of the Plunderers. She has put up with the Crazy Lady, bad art shows, illness and sad times because of you. She has laughed out loud and been lifted into a better mood because of you. She has amazing dishes to serve for Christmas dinner because of you. She feels part of a wonderful, loving and giving community because of you.
    And as this year passes into next, she counts each and everyone of you as her Christmas gifts this year.
    Blessings to you all………..
    oops, the cookies are scorching….gotta run.

    Pepper!…. Yippppee!!….snort!….I just found out that I get to go to the farm and see Pepper today!…woooo!….And the very best thing is that Beau does not get to go. She thinks it would be too over-whelming for him out there in the wide open spaces with Pepper stepping all over him…heh!….Pepper and I have an understanding. She does what I say and that’s that…chuffle!

    Project!….First someone has to finish cleaning the basement and organizing her work area…wuffle!….Looking good so far! Hurry the hell up, would ja?!…grunt!

    Woooo Wooooo Wookie!!! The ARC arrived yesterday by special delivery. Thank you for the nice letter and for making certain we received it in time for Christmas. We can’t wait to read it. Two more in queue now. Next is B…then Barb & Maggie.

    12:36 pm on December 24th, 2011

    To the Royal Family: That was such a lovely video!

    Rio: Will your frined take any more video of you and Pepper out at the farm. Have a good time!!!!

    Rebecca: You know how fond of sparkly things Belle and I are. I hope this doesn’t turn into a wrestling match when you get home…

  31. Snowhook Bella
    12:36 pm on December 24th, 2011

    T&G: I agree with you—this year has been made better, fuller, and easier because of the Plunderers.

  32. Snowhook Bella
    12:38 pm on December 24th, 2011

    Rose: Normally, I’d say that I’d win, but Belle Starr doesn’t play fair. I can’t even imagine the wrestling match if someone like the Professor, for example tried to make the Golden Paw his own. I don’t know the Professor, but my money would be on you.

  33. Rose
    12:40 pm on December 24th, 2011

    Rio: That would be your FRIEND. OOO, do you think you could send us a picture of your little Christmas tree so we can see all the ornaments, especially the one sent by that nasty Yankee Fan???

  34. B.Stover
    12:41 pm on December 24th, 2011

    Thank you for the lovely card T&G.

    Rio: All of the cards were great. (I still like the back stroke with flippers the best.)

  35. Rose
    12:43 pm on December 24th, 2011

    Rebecca: I win ALL of the wrestling matches around here. Soemtimes, I don’t even have to wrestle, since Belle schooled me in the fine art of batting my eyelashes……

  36. BearSpiritDog
    12:50 pm on December 24th, 2011

    Tupper&Gilly: That was a Beautiful Card, sniff.

    It is comforting to know that during this Holiday Season and throughout the New Year, we too, have joined the Plunderers under the Quilt of Many Colors.

    Now we must bid adieu
    But only for a while
    Wishing the best of the
    Season to each of you.

    To Plunderers Near and Far:

    May every one enjoy the love and warmth of family and friends this weekend.

    Prof and I will see “Hugo,” partake in roast loin of pork, asparagus, broiled brussels sprouts,cheesecake and creme anglaise (SP?) for dinner (with leftovers for tomorrow!). We will each open one gift tonight (our tradition), have a long and snuggly sleep, and see what else Santa has left under our tree.

    Safe travels, Merry Christmas and Happy Hanuakah to all!

    Thank you to all of you for your warm wishes. Tupper & Gilly, your card was beautiful. And Rio, we loved all 12 Dogs of Christmas, and we just can’t make up our minds which is our favorite. Every time we have a fav, the next one strikes us even funnier.
    We hope each of you have a great, fantastic, fun Christmas or Hanukkah or any other holiday you celebrate during Solstice time. We have enjoyed your comraderie greatly. Now we are signing off, because it’s getting late and we still have a bunch to do to get ready for our big big crowd here tomorrow, and Mom and Pop will be leaving soon for family Christmas Eve party tonight. We’ll check back in next week. ENJOY!

    Greetings Plunderers from the west side of the mitten. Mom and I are hanging out with my BFFs, my grandma, Aunt Mimi, 2 nephews, my 2-legged brother and the pom and weiner doggie. I spent my morning at the spa being wonderfluffed, and I am beat! I have a wonderful spot next to my mom (who was also wonderfluffed this morning) and half my body is on her leg and I am catching a wonderful afternoon snooze. We have a local radio station on that is playing Christmas songs (with NO commercials!) which is very pleasant. Just a dusting of snow on the ground and bright sunshine outside. Wishing all of you and yours a wonderful Christmas and holiday season. It’s a blessed gift to know you all.

    From Our Pack to Yours!
    River Bear

    On the Twelfth day of Christmas,
    the Newf Pack gave to me
    Twelve headless dog toys,
    Eleven drooled on toy heads,
    Ten broken squeakers,
    Nine yards of stuffing,
    Eight tail-cleared tables,
    Seven holes to China,
    Six old gross gnawed bones,
    Five Howling Newfs,
    Four times nine paws,
    Three mud holes,
    Two minutes only,
    Give a home just the love that it needs.

    Jazz, that is not what I meant, and you know it silly boy! I want to see you wonderfluffed. I don’t believe the boy in the picture has been wonderfluffed.

    Awww, Melanie, it sounds very festive at your house. Who was the antler model?

    (we just added wonderfluffed to our spell check dictionary. I wonder if anyone else in the world has it?!)

  53. Siber-H
    3:51 pm on December 24th, 2011

    Macy, Wonderfluffed is a word that needs to be removed from the English language. GAH

    T&G Thank you for the beautiful card. The dog and cat in it are beyond cute.

    Jasper, Thank you for sharing some of your family with us this Christmas Eve.

    Melanie, Your poem made us laugh and I can relate to some of it although there is only one of me. (and I’m smaller)

    TYB, I have a special request. Can you please tell at least part of the story about how Blou brought you and your dad together?

    Puleeze?

    Maybe not today, but sometime soon?

    In this season of magic, what could be better than a story of magic?

    I’m tracking Santa on the internet. Sure hope he has my snow gun onboard that sleigh.

    Natasha,
    That is a delightful card. Spaciba. I can say it, but I can’t spell it. My Borzoi, Czar,
    taught me that word.

    Wolfie,
    I’ll share the story one day soon.

My friend’s friend was baking a ham and already had a turkey cooked. It smelled great in that kitchen!…Woooooo!….I begged and begged but got nothing but a little cheese and some cracker…grunt!… Still all in all a great time was had by All!…heh!

    Eve!…It is Christmas Eve. I love love love Christmas Eve….snort!… The possibility of presents is still possible…snorkel!…The joy of smelling dinner cooking tomorrow is yet to come…heh! …Her mother on the other paw is a tad miffed because her cable went out just a little bit ago…heh!… Ours is fine so far. We are all snuggled downstairs, which I must say is neat as a pin, watching Charlie Brown’s Christmas….wheeze!….She is going to put in A Wonderful Life as soon as this show is over. I have to say we have not watched A Wonderful Life in years!!!…snort! ….This will be a real treat tonight…snuffle!

    YSAS and I cook a great dinner and have been playing “Shut the Box” and a 3D puzzle called Perplexus. ME nephew has joined us and is loving both games.

    The Pack’s stocking is chock full of gifts!

    Natasha, a great card! I just wish that decorating and un-decorating were that easy. sigh . . .

    We’ve been listening to Loreena McKennitt and watching a fake fire on the computer. . .

    Merry Merry All . . .

    ps. that’s Patsy on comment 50!

    Somehow didn’t get Bella’s comment until I put mine up.

    I hope AJ’s bug is a very short one. Zoë’s lasted around 18 hours but she is still tired.

    Oh no. Not the dreaded stomach flu. We had it here at the house last April and the old folks were miserable. I hope AJ gets over it soon. Tell him to wash his hands LOTS!

    Happy Holidays to all my Plundering friends. You are the best.

    Love the picture of Patsy. I’ve been wondering which one of the pack had been posted.

    Oh Look! Rio’s tail is decorated for Christmas. I hope BStover doesn’t see that. She will not be able to resist that curly green ribbon. Snicker.

    Sniff. Well I guess everone has gone to bed. Even Mr.Staff is in there. I think I better get Staff on her way too. He might be cold and need us all in the bed with him.

    See you in the morning everyone….Hugs to you all. I wonder if Liz has already had her Christmas? 14 hours difference and I think she is ahead of us but I am not sure if I remember right.
