    Happy New Year! Mom is so far behind on reading the blog to me that I am at a loss! I will hopefully catch up sometime today and have something important or interesting to add!

    Good morning B, BooBear and everyone!
    We are LOL at OFA’s resolution.

    I think the New Year’s resolution is a good one. At 85, I find I clench what teeth I still have and hold my breath too much. So Thank you! I will breathe.

    I hope 2018 is a wonderful year for all of you on the Blog. Many of you sent me cards this year reminding me of how much You and Melanie meant to each other. I miss Dan and Melanie. Dan and I would have had our 67th Anniversary this January. I miss my wonderful big, drooly Newfs, too. Vesper is a great companion with a sense of humor that reminds me of Eleanor’s. She, however, being a Newf lady from Virginia, does not care for the zero degree weather we are having. She goes out in the yard, runs in and upstairs and gets on what used to be my, but is now our, bed. She says she’ll come out when the ice melts.

    I know Melanie would want a fine 2018 for all of you, as do I. Zoe

    Zoe, wonderful to hear from you and Vesper. Our Newfie, Darah Thea, is a South Carolina gal from near where the Howlers are now. Darah loves the icy weather we’ve been having. She lays on the cold cement and “honks” at the neighborhood
    for a long time. She jumps on the ice in the wading pool. She’s our goofy Newfie.
    Happy New Year to you and yours.

    Zoe: Melanie’s voice was a blessing to the blog. Intelligent, wise and funny. She is fondly remembered and sorely missed (as are other voices who have retired from the blog.)

    I awoke to hurricane force winds battering the house. Did the weatherman mention wind in his forecast last night? No, he did not. This is a strong, warm Chinook wind that will probably melt what little snow we have. I am glad OFM doesn’t have to worry about training in these conditions.

    I am laughing at the New Year resolutions of Sadie, Denali, Mr. Big, and C.Hobbitz.

    Zoe: It is wonderful to hear from you! What C.Hobbitz said about Melanie and those who no longer post on the blog.

    Still cold in this neck of the woods. Some snow may be in the future…

    Good day to all!

    Wow. We are experiencing an incredible super full moon here in Chevy Chase. It will be the biggest of 2018 by far.

    Experiencing!…Very cold temps. The electrical at the Library went out on Sunday so the big ole building was without heat for 2 days….wheeze!…Electricians fixed the problem, but the building was still very cold today when my friend was there. The books were like blocks of ice…yeeep!

  15. Riõ - The Evil Pug
    9:25 pm on January 2nd, 2018

    After!…The library coldness my friend had to go to the postal office. Usually there is almost no one there…sniff!…Today the whole town was at the postal office. Lines to the door, even the drop box outside was full…yeeep!…My friend had an appointment for an oil change to my Subaru and was watching the clock as the line moved very slowly….gurgle!

  16. Riõ - The Evil Pug
    9:36 pm on January 2nd, 2018

    Then!…She had to wait for 2 hours for my Subaru to get an oil change even though she had an appointment because the garage was so backed up because of all the people who had dead batteries or bad experiences on the highway because of the frigid weather….grump!…The garage waiting room was not very warm so my friend was still freezing. She made the best of it by reading a good book called “Outlander”….snuffle!…It is a very thick book and she has read and read and read and hardly made a dent innit…grunt!…But it is an amazing story as we here have never seen the TV show…snuffle!….So the whole day was not a loss…heh!heh!

    According to the chart, I am to eat fewer postmen on Sundays. They don’t deliver mail to our property in our neck of the woods. Resolution?—-nailed it!

    My Lady says, ‘Not so fast!’ It seems I’ve taken to eating mail last week as a new vice. Personally, I cannot recall at this time….

    Mail!…Ole Doc, I’m not sure but I think “I cannot recall” is a totally legit legal term used in court…snort!

    Ole Doc!…Are you getting enough fiber in yer diet?…sniff!…Maybe this is the reason you are craving paper bills and such…wheeze!

    Rio: The Thieves told me the same thing. They can be trusted when it comes to the law. Just ask Beau.

    More to Rio: Is Beau getting his credentials? I got a pmail from the Thieves this morning that said they were helping Beau take a test. Whatever test it is, good for Beau!

  23. Riõ - The Evil Pug
    10:04 pm on January 2nd, 2018

    Test!…All I know is he is being “Tested”…sniff!…And to the Maximum Pug Requirements…grunt!

    10:07 pm on January 2nd, 2018

    WOW! He is really rising through the ranks if he is sitting for a high level exam. I hope there’s a pay raise in it for him. I’m sure he will pass. He couldn’t be in better paws than with the Thieves!

    Beau: I apologize now for any test prep the Thieves have done or may do in the near future. I’d blame their upbringing, but I’m not allowed to anymore so says Luna. So therefore…I cannot recall at this time.

    More to Beau: Good luck on the test! Snorkel!

    Sticks!…And a sharp knife please…sneeze!grunt!

    Apologizes!…Are accepted an I take dis apologize as a sign-off on any activities which may or may-not happen during da testing period…snuffle!

    Tonight the sisters and I played cards but now we have to go to bed because I have to get on the early train tomorrow. If anyone wants to track the train you can go to:

    Then you can go up to the top of the U.S. map and follow train 8. All you have to do it touch the little arrow pointing east and it will tell you where it is and when if it is on time. I will be getting on at Whitefish Wednesday morning and off at Fargo in the early early morning on Thursday.
