    Good morning, everyone! Mmm, isn’t having kids and animals fun? So many responsibilities, so many myths.
    Have a tenacious Thursday.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning!

    Mom has been in lurk mode. Why? Who knows. But it is time to get serious about toffee. Estimated shipping date is Monday, December 16. If you would like more than one box, please email us at aller@sti.net, and make a donation to Snowhook.

    And guess what? My boy Cody has (finally) agreed to get help! And Chad is doing great! He is living in Oregon and has a good job.

    News from Wolfie!

    Wolfie, great news 🙂 Your tenacity has paid off.

    Wolfie, Great to hear from you. You must feel relieved that Cody is getting help. How is Jace?
    Your toffee is the best! If we want to order extra, what do you suggest for a $$ amount?

    Nice article posted by Spence. I bet Loulou’s mom would agree about the doggy day care facilities.

    HOH: Tenacious…good choice of words for this Thursday…lots to do on a tight schedule.
    Staff: Interesting that not all liquids are helpful for dehydration. But now we are more worrit about our Bella. Wish she were home with her pack, not flying off to the top of the world every other week.
    Dima: Callie loves the jacket. You will too. Don’t be embarrassed. Soon you sisters will be asking for one.
    My computer is acting weird. sniff.

    It is nice to hear your good news, Wolfie!

    Dima, I am glad you are feeling tip-top. Maybe the ‘rents will find you a technicolor dream coat.

    I had my appendix out, and I still filter pretty well.

    Very worrit about our Pixie. Mama Luna, please put your paw down, and get your mama to a good doctor.

  9. Herd of Hounds
    10:53 am on December 12th, 2013

    Morning, Wose. Good to hear from you. Mom’s worry in the filter dept. is that she is missing several filters (along with her marbles). Tonsils, adenoids, appendix, spleen. This all throws more at the liver, just don’t want it to quiver!

  10. Wose
    10:54 am on December 12th, 2013

    Masquers, I love when our avatars are together. : )

    RIO! Maybe I can help out at AC next time. That is of course, if you want to train me. Did your friend open the package she got the other day? If it is not from Yankee Stadium, she may open it and open the card only.

  11. Wose
    10:57 am on December 12th, 2013

    HOH! How are youse? My appendix is the only missing filter. I have a bunch of teeth that aren’t mine, and I am struggling to try to hold on to the last of my marbles….

    Hey, I like the new FOC , RolyPoly. It looks like he is missing an eye…

    Good morning all.

    Mama says she still has most of her parts – and apparently even has some extras, which is why she is so fluffy.

    Gramp has been told (over and over and over again) that Mama can’t have carbohydrates, which is why she doesn’t eat the bread, potatoes or pasta etc that she cooks for the rest of the family. So today, Gramp came home with a box of donuts to thank her for all her help with Callie. He is so proud of himself, because they aren’t carbohydrates – they aren’t made of potatoes after all.


    Its pack up day, ready to head off for the show.

  14. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    11:09 am on December 12th, 2013

    For additional boxes of toffee, I was thinking of a Snowhook donation in the area of $8~$10 dollars?

    By the way, I am reading a fabulously funny book, Hyberbole and a Half. I would recommend it to anyone!

  15. Belle Starr
    11:11 am on December 12th, 2013

    Tail wags for Wolfie and his good news!

    I am certain my pixie mama stole my glitter and is using it as fairy dust in the far north. This makes me very grumpy, you understand.

    Wose: Next week my pixie mama is going to take ten days off from work. Using the miles she’s racked up she was able to get a ticket to visit Coach and Bev. Coach knows she is coming, but it is a surprise for Bev. That damn pixie who stole my glitter (uh, did I say that out loud) will relax and rest then.

  16. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    11:15 am on December 12th, 2013

    Good. I am glad that Bella is taking a break. We here are also worrit about her health. (Whispering). If the pixie sends me an address, I can ship them a box of toffee also.

    I went back to read the last of the blog from last night and noticed that I had put wrong numbers in for tracking. grrrr.
    I guess my finger stayed down on the number four too long.
    Here are the corrected numbers:

    Hixson TN your tracking number is 9114901159818652833507

    Oley PA your tracking number is 9114901159818652833538

    Woodstock IL your tracking number is 9114901159818652833521

    I spent a lot of time playing with an address and email and phone list for the members of the blog. There are some that I can’t remember/find but I have an awful lot of them.

    If you DO NOT want your information on a list like this let me know.

    I will wait a week or so for people to tell me their wishes and then put it up on dishlickers. I expect there will be corrections once I have it up. It is a work in progress.

  19. Tupper and Gilly
    11:29 am on December 12th, 2013

    Staff – thank you very much for your work on this project. And would you like a donut?

  20. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    11:39 am on December 12th, 2013

    Donuts? Yay, I love donuts! So does Gus puppy! And we love carbs!

    Wait a minute. What the heck ARE carbs?


    Well, who cares what they are. We love them no matter what!

    Good Morning for the Land of Quivering Liver.

    Wölfie, Good to hear from you, and Good News too. How wonderful.

    I have found that my body is being weird about many foods now. I just wish it would give me a warning that a new food will not be tolerated.

    The big computer is back! The Mac Doc cleaned the screen. I do clean the screen, but whatever he uses has this thing shining like new.

    Having a tired and hurting day. Plan on resting a great deal.

    Oh, one more thing that made me laugh . .

    11:55 am on December 12th, 2013

    SiberH: You would love it up here lately. Everyday 4 or more new inches of snow. Today it’s minus 6 F (- 21 C). Needing a day of sun.

    HOH: Yeep! You are missing many parts! I have an extra 1/2 a vertebrae. At least that’s how I remember it from years ago when I went to a chiropractor. “Otherwise you’d be really short.” (As opposed to short, plain and simple.)
    Oh well, yes…I’m missing a few teeth and marbles…isn’t everyone?

    I had to call the bakery early today and ask that the order I made for pickup today be rescheduled for tomorrow because, duh, that is when the party happens. I was a day early!

    Wolfie: Excellent news!

    T&G: I think I need a doughnut before I go shoveling.

    Hope all you dogs and kats and your 4 legged friends are healthy.

  26. Barb & Maggie
    12:03 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Wolfie, we will be emailing you because we want 2 extra packages of toffee. No, not for us (Barb wishes!)

    We have 2 hard to buy for people on our gift list who will be getting the toffee. But, we will be keeping some back for Barb. No chocolate for moi.

  27. Dima
    12:09 pm on December 12th, 2013

    We are getting a “significant snowstorm” on Saturday. And here I am with a bald belly. sigh
    Wolfie, Howdy! I am always glad to hear from you, but even happier when you share some wonderful news.

  28. Siber-H
    12:09 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Wolfie, Good to hear from you and we are thankful for your good news.

    Dima, My mom supports your mom is getting you a jacket. Callie looks sharp in hers.

    The only filter mom is missing is her appendix. It ruptured when she was 22 yearts old.

    Dawson is living in Paradise, sigh. It is boring here but at least it is cold…cold for this country.

    Rebecca, Good Girl!! You are taking 10 days off.

  29. Dima
    12:15 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Siber, will you go try it on for me?

    So, your mom had her appendix out last year? 🙂

  30. Siber-H
    12:24 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Dima, Actually, I would try it on for you. Mom thinks I might be agreeable to wearing a jacket if I needed it. Mom is guesing that you are a fairly mellow Siber guy.

    Dima, Mom says it was 3 years ago, but hugs for coming so close.

    That is a good article Spence posted. We have seen it all at doggie day care places and dog parks.

  31. Melanie
    12:55 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Been on phone to the doc and the store that sells “ladies’ things”. I might be able to get some “ladies’ things” through my health insurance.

    The store has just called back and everything is for a go. Not sure if it will get covered but it doesn’t hurt to try.

    Anyway, I have proved to myself that I am not in my twenties when I was free and unbounded!

    Dima, Mattie has a lot of hair. You sure you don’t want your coat stuffed? I could send you some.

    Luna, make sure SnowBella does AIRBORNE on her flight. The Smooches should go with her to make sure she drinks and drinks and drinks. (water, of course!)

  32. Masquers
    12:56 pm on December 12th, 2013

    T&G: Yay! Your mama & mine are twins.
    Wolfie: We would be most happy to send a donation to Snowhook.
    Your toffee is the best!
    Bella: Very relieved to hear you are taking 10 days off. A vacation is just what is needed right now. Especially a surprise visit to see your mama…the best medicine in the world.

    Dawson good to hear from you 🙂
    T&G’s Mama: No carb donuts with the calories removed.
    Dima: With a nakkid tummy, a jacket is a good idea. Pookey has a duffle coat for days like today. We still haven’t gotten above 32 🙁 Brrrrr.
    Melanie, rest, check the inside of your eyelids for a bit, too.

    1:24 pm on December 12th, 2013

    1:38 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Mattie hair sounds like just the ticket!

  37. Wose
    1:40 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Belle Starr, I am glad the Pixie is taking 10 days off. Maybe Mama Luna’s look wasn’t stern enough. I am sure that Coach and especially Bev will take very good care of their baby girl.
    In the meantime, maybe you can blur me over to your house, and I can help you find where all your pixie dust is hidden.

    Melanie: Love the book tree! Very cool.

    STAFF: You can certainly add my name to the list!

    Wolfie: I would love an extra package of toffee. It is goody, good, GOOD! I will send a check to Snowhook.

    Siber-H: my appendix ruptured at home when I was 3. How the heck could that happen?

    SMOOCHERS: You should be blurring over to Coach and Bev’s house next week to make sure the Pixie is wrapped gently under the quilt, drinks her water, smooch her up (Kat you are the smoochiest of Smoochers), and provide whatever her heart desires so she can feel tip-top immediately!

  38. Barb & Maggie
    1:44 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Howlers, We are scheduled to get the major snow storm this weekend too. Ours may start late Friday. Wonder if it is the same storm?

  39. Dima
    1:49 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Maggie, we are having 2 storms converge on us. The one is from the west, so that must be yours. The other one is coming up the coast. What does this mean? HUSKY FUN !!!!!!

  40. Kat
    1:53 pm on December 12th, 2013

    I will blur to Coach and Bev’s just as soon as I can dig out from all of my SNOW! Do you think Bella will be able to give belly rubs? They don’t call her TBDBR for nothing.

  41. Princess Sam
    1:55 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Siber-H, we have just a dusting of snow here in a northern suburb of Buffalo, but the southern suburbs got 2 feet! They’re 10 miles away, but close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.

    Oh my dawg…mom has been loosing hair since her surgery and it is so thin it wouldn’t even stay in a clip so she chopped it off really short. We think she looks like a baby vulture but the Old Fart likes it (so he says).

  47. Mollypop's Mom
    2:50 pm on December 12th, 2013

    I’m so excited I could just splort! Loulou and I went down the residents elevator to get our mail and Pat LaFontaine was in the elevator. Be still my heart. The Sabres just brought him back to Buffalo and now he lives here in my hotel. I’m in Unit 5J and he’s in 5A right around the corner from me! Oh joy oh joy.

  48. Melanie
    2:51 pm on December 12th, 2013

    I chopped my hair off once. My guys stopped talking to me! When it was really short, the docs decided to try me on meds that ended up not working, but made me like a zombie,

    My hair came back curly!

  49. Melanie
    2:53 pm on December 12th, 2013

    MollyPop’s Mom, I am happy for you. I have no idea what you are talking about, but you are twirling, twirling, twirling, and that’s enough for me to be happy!

  50. Siber-H
    3:02 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Princess Sam, Hang in there. Your chances of snow this winter are better than mine. We have gotten a dusting 4 different times this year. Our ski areas are reporting good snow totals.
    All I really need to do is live at a higher elevation in this state. One would think that the elevatin of almost 6,000 feet that I live at would be high enough, but it isn’t. gah

    Mollypop’s Mom, This is exciting! I’m happy for you. You will run into him often.

  51. Masquers
    3:03 pm on December 12th, 2013

  52. Mollypop's Mom
    3:31 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Back when Pat LaFontaine was playing for the Buffalo Sabres, I had the biggest crush on him. His kids went to the same preschool as Sam’s girl, who is now 20. I would go to pick her up from school in hopes of running into Pat, but I never did. What a stalker! Now, hee hee, I have him right at my doorstep.

  53. B. Stover
    4:14 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Who’s Pat Lafontaine?

  54. BooBear
    4:14 pm on December 12th, 2013

    How very cool, MPM! Be sure to use little LouLou to your advantage in conversation starts!

    Wolfie, we definitely want 3 orders of the toffee and will be happy to send a donation to Snowhook.

    Put us on the address list on Dishlickers.

    I just LOVE this blog!!

    I have extra parts! Extra teeth and an extra kidney and a whole extra vertebrae according to my Chiropractor. That is why I am the tall sister. (Although I am shrinking.)

    Another thing I discovered I have extra is a hernia. sniff. It doesn’t hurt and it gives when it is pushed so we are just ‘watching’ it right now. Do you know how much I can safely lift while protecting my hernia? Neither did I. It is less than a vintage sewing machine that is for sure. I got the doctor to go up to 15 pounds so I can carry my Singer Featherweight.
    Mr. Staff has been ‘on call’ since I learned of this ‘extra’ thing. grrrr

    Wolfie I will email you. I am hoping to get two packages/servings.

  56. Siber-H

    Mom just looked at some pictures of him when he was younger. He was a pretty hot dude. Mollypop’s mom can tell us if he still is.

    STAFF: Most of the addresses are in the contact section of Dish already. We are fine with it, cause we like getting surprises.

    Pug: The explanation of the spleen is the very, very end of the video. Perhaps you were just watching every other second.

    Wolfie, great news, just in time for Christmas! Do you get to see Jace?

    Royal Mum: perhaps you can go into the shirt for the hairless business too.

  59. Macy the min-pin
    5:05 pm on December 12th, 2013

    We might want to go easy on Wolfie’s ma. Making and shipping all that toffee must cost a fortune. Or maybe it is just that mom is such a tightwad that she worries about things like that.

    Loulou, look your very cutest when sharing the elevator with the celeb neighbor. Maybe you can carry him a little bag of toffee around your neck. Ring the doorbell (well get your mom to do it for you) then just sit there looking adorable. He will invite you and your mom in for some hot cocoa and…

  60. Tupper and Gilly
    5:18 pm on December 12th, 2013

    We admit it – we have never heard of Pat LaFountain either. So we looked him up. Yes, he is quite good looking.

    The Little Lost Lulu ploy sounds like the best bet.

  61. O'Howlers
    5:23 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Woo Hoo, Auntie MPM!!! Mom knows who LaFontaine is and how much you love him. Tell us what he looks like now.

  62. Siber-H
    5:32 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Macy, You are right about the toffee costing Wolfie’s mom a lot of money.

    Yes, Mollypop’s mom, We want to learn more.

    Use Bing as your search engine and a lot of pictures of Pat will come up. I love Bing for that reason.

  63. BooBear
    5:38 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Wolfie’s Mom, I will send you a check to offset the cost of mailing some of the toffee as well as make the donation to Snowhook! Mom insists!!

    Mom was just out at the mailbox and met one of our guys named Tully. He is golden Corgi. Looks kind of like somebody chopped the legs off Teddy. He was very friendly, especially since mom just finished eating chicken livers with her fingers!

    Rose, Barb and Siber-H, thanks.

  66. Siber-H
    5:51 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Dima, Oh Dawg, You do look mortified. It isn’t that bad and mom says it is for the best.

  67. Barb & Maggie
    5:51 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Boobear, Your mom has a good point about postage (in addition to the fact that Mary covers the cost of ingredients too). We will also send her some moola.

    We don’t object to our address being on Dishlickers. Barb is not in Witness Protection, so we aren’t worried about someone looking for her. Snicker

  71. Barb & Maggie
    5:56 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Macy, Barb LOVES chicken livers! Brown’s Chicken sells orders of livers or gizzards. Wonder why Popeye’s and KFC don’t offer them? The local Browns closed so now there is no where to get carry out.

  72. Barb & Maggie
    6:06 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Guess it was in bad taste for the chicken liver comments to come in right below those beautiful hens!

    Did anyone see the article about the family out east that has some backyard hens they got to help their autistic son. He has made tremendous strides in treatment due to his interaction with the chickens. But now the local town council says they can’t keep them in the city limits. You can keep them in NYC, but not in this little hamlet. Very sad.

  73. Princess Sam
    6:23 pm on December 12th, 2013

    The snowstorm that dumped 2 feet of snow in the southern suburbs has now come to the north. It’s a lake effect storm not a general snowfall and those kind oscillate north and south and north and south and dump their snow. Driving is bad here right now but the storm is supposed to move to south of the city and the ski country overnight. No big deal here.

  74. Macy the min-pin
    6:39 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Barb, can’t they be service chickens? Get little vests for them?

    Dima, I think you need some short to go with that, heh-heh. Does it cover your shaved area? I’m not laughing at you, really,(he-he-har-har, lol, roflcmu, oh, oww, I think I pulled something, snort)

    We are ROFL at all the insensitive, oops, silly chicken comments.

  79. Siber-H

    Rio, Does Beau know that the Broncos are playing tonight?

    8:57 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Dima, I am trying hard not to laugh at the expression on your face. I’d that one of Bernie’s Hawaiin shirts.

  97. Wose
    8:58 pm on December 12th, 2013

    RIO! I hope your friend can figure out the photo problem. Would love to see your little Christmas tree.

    Masquers, I do believe we are indeed twins!!

    Four to eight inches of snow predicted for my area Saturday into Sunday. Whoooooohooooo!

  100. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:04 pm on December 12th, 2013

    PHOTOES!…It’s not up to my friend to figure this problem out – it is up to the IT Tech-Guy who runs this blog to figure it out…grump!…His name is Mike Baker, I do believe….sniff!

    Jace is absolutely the most wonderful boy ever! The kids have gotten much better about sharing, but at five months, mom doesn’t want him out of her sight. Mom isn’t good with babies. For example, we all went shopping today and mom sorta misplaced Jace for about five minutes. We were in the checkout line we noticed that his cart was nowhere to be found. It was pretty amazing to see how fast the doors were locked and employees started racing around. We found him safe and sound, right where mom had accidentally left him!

  102. Wose
    9:06 pm on December 12th, 2013

    RIO! Did you see the card? I picked it out just for you….

    I hope Mr. Baker gets this photo problem corrected. Then, maybe your friend can post video of you and Beau opening your gifts. heh.

  103. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    9:07 pm on December 12th, 2013

    To clarify, Jace’s mom doesn’t want him out of her sight. My mom is glad that she doesn’t have to change diapers! Litter boxes are bad enough!

  104. Dima's Pop
    9:08 pm on December 12th, 2013

    If we could please stop picking on my boy!

  105. Dima
    9:10 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Glad you found him, Wolfie.
    I’m going to get lost too, if she puts that silly fleece thing on me again.

    Barb, Mom wants to know if you always opened up your coop door, even if it was a super frigid day.

  106. Wose
    9:13 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Dima, in my family we tease the ones we love. You are loved, and I hope you rest comfortably and are feeling tip-top!

    Getting ready to snuggle under my Wizard of Oz quilt.
    Grizz is going to have something scooped off of his forehead tomorrow at the doctor’s office.

    May everyone sleep well.

    Only halfway through, didn’t have time to read yesterday, and, umm, hi y’all!

    Toffee? What’s this about toffee? Toffee is wonderful stuff. What’s the story? Someone can feel free to tell me on Email and not clutter up the blog since everyone else already knows. I’m still pretty clueless, but maybe I’ll get better.

    Staff. Directory. A staff directory. Sure, I’ll play, too. Not like I’m hard to find or I’ve got any secrets. buddy@brannan.name is my Email, other particulars can be had.

    We have snow. Maybe we’ll have more snow. And it’s pretty cold. Fiona wears a sweater. Who knew a long-haired dog like Fiona would get so shivery cold? Leno is too cool for a sweater.

  109. Melanie
    9:25 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Oh, I thought of many comments as I caught up on Chet’s Blog.

    But, my mind and eyes are weary.

    Thanks for making me laugh!

    Best to Grizz on his forehead scraping. I know it will go well.

    Oh *tail between legs* I have been called on the carpet by Dima’s dad. “sorry”

    I believe that the pug is cursed since he is the only one having picture problems.

    Cursed!…There are others who cannot post a photo, they aren’t as loud and angry as I am…grump!

  113. Barb & Maggie
    9:43 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Macy, have you not read our many, many complaints about not being able to upload photos? For several months we have had to ask for help from T & G and Melanie to get our photos on the blog. One other blogger mentioned not being able to upload.

    Howlers, If the weather was just cold Barb opened the little coop door which faced west. If it was windy or snowing hard and blowing towards the coop door, then she didn’t open it. If there was a lot of snow, they usually wouldn’t go out, but at least if gave them fresh air.

  114. Buddy and Leno
    9:49 pm on December 12th, 2013

    There’s some irony in the blind guy being able to post photos. … I’d’ve taken some of my trip to New York, except they would have probably been things like the sides of buildings, or empty space, or floating heads or something like that. Probably best I didn’t.

  115. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:08 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Versions!…I am pretty darn sure it is the advanced version of Internet Explorer 11 that is causing the problem…sniff!…But I am not going to attempt to uninstall IE 11 and reinstall IE 8 until this weekend…grump!…Someone here wants to read more info on the “process”. As it is not an obvious process in Windows 7…growl!grump!….Baker get yer act together…sniff!…Keep UP!

  116. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:09 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Buddy!…What version of IE are you using? Or are you even using IE…sniff!

    Macy, I have been consulting your nicely cleaned Dish links while I make the list.
    What is Fred feeding those chickens? It looks like a golden pine cone.

    Poor poor Dima…snicker. You could buy him matching Hawaiian pants.

    Sneeze!….What da heck is going on down here?…sniff!sneeze!….My Broncos are losing 24 ta 10 somehow, someway…wheeze!…What da heck is going on?…wuffle!

  119. Staff
    10:33 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Rio, I checked and although I have Internet Explorer I do not use it. I am running Chrome as my browser. Windows 7 – 64 bit Home edition

  120. Buddy and Leno
    10:35 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Sorry Rio. I’m using a Mac at the moment, but I’ve got both a Windows 7 and Windows 8 machines with IE11 on them, and will try posting a photo from one of those. Oh, and I posted using Google Chrome on the Mac, so you might try installing Chrome. I wouldn’t advise rolling back to IE8, as you’ll leave yourself open to more security vulnerabilities than by staying current. Just try a different browser, like Chrome or Firefox. Heck, they’re free, it’ll just cost you a bit of hard drive space.

    Checkpoint Update will happen tomorrow. New matching funds will be instigated because there is zip, nada, nothing to report.

  124. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:49 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Awwww!….Dawson, I hate that you have nothing to report…sniffle!…That is not what I wanted to hear here….gruffle!

    Sneeeze!….Now dats what I’m talkin’ about!….snort!…Dose Broncos just scored a touchdown….sneeze!…I really do think they need for me to be watching dem every game…eh!heh!heh!…They need me!…sneeze!

  126. Barb & Maggie
    10:54 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Rio, How do we figure out these things? We have Windows 8, but how do we know what browser we are using? And what is IE8 and IE11? We sign on to yahoo, does that mean anything?

  127. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:57 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Barb!….heh!heh!….I will SDD you later, maybe tomorrow and walk you through how to figure out what version you are using…snort!…I am too tired tonight and I am also watching a very exciting football game…Woooooo!

    Sneeze!… Dose broncos are behind by one touchdown but right now dey have the ball…heh!…I am expecting incredible edible things ta happen in da next few minutes….snuffle!


  129. Barb & Maggie
    11:15 pm on December 12th, 2013

    Rio, thank you, we will check our SDD tomorrow. You can even wait for the weekend, because Barb has to be gone almost all day tomorrow. She will be helping out a friend who needs a ride after some minor surgery tomorrow at noon.

    Nighty night.

    Dima we all think you look very dashing in your sweater. Kind of a cross between Bernie and Magnum PI. Callie has to wear a sweater since her whole side and chest are shaved. Today, we dug out a bizarre shawl that someone gave us years ago. IT is crocheted out of brown “eyelash” yarn, and if you hold one side, it “grows”, and if you turn it around and hold the end, it grows that way. It is truly hideous, but we never had the heart to throw it away since it was a handmade gift, given by a lovely woman with a generous heart (and no taste). Today, that brown, furry shawl was a wonderful way to wrap Callie up for her perambulations. She looked like a brown and white Newf.

    Macy – you are a (very funny) bad puppy.

    Wolfie – we are so glad to hear from you. Your Mom and Jace have been in our prayers.

    Off to bed, ready to hit the road in the morning. Be good you all.
