    Good morning, everyone! Glad OFA is coming along. Those typos will heal themselves when the dancing giraffes go away. Last night’s list of funded Snowhook dogs was impressive! We hope the Anchorage weather does indeed bring snow. Willow seems to be a bit colder.
    Have a trusty Thursday.

    Okay…I’m laughing. I wonder what would happen if we had “typo check” in addition to “spell check.” Chaos!

    I hope you’re feeling better Admin. Take care.

    Good morning all.

    I never could get the hang of Thursdays.

    So, OK…first, been wondering for ages, but what exactly are we plundering?

    Thanks for the good wishes for Melanie. She had her dialysis yesterday (third round), and she tells me they got six pounds of fluid off her (!!!!) “No wonder I can’t breathe,” she says. Yeah, we agree.

    ML: No, Leno isn’t in any danger of imminent retirement. In fact, he’s tip top. Being tip top, and four years in, I figured it would be a goo time to get #4 started. I mean from total scratch. So new pups got themselves born on Isaac Asimov’s birthday, January 2, and I’ll get to meet them on the 31st, and one will come home with me at the end of February/beginning of March. I figure by the time new pup is 18 months to two years, I hope to have training of new pup well on its way. By then, Leno will have been working for six years and some, which is about when my last two retired. If he wants to keep working, he can, nothing says I can’t have two guides and take one or the other when one or the other feels like going and the other can kick backk for a trip. Anyway, my plan is for Leno to teach new pup everything he knows. Or at least help with that. New picture got posted…I guess maybe they’re starting to become less of a pile of puppies now maybe.

    Good morning y’all!

    Good morning, all. We are laughing, too, over the post today.

    Buddy, are you going to do all the training yourself? Or will the pup get some training for a professional group like Guiding Eyes?

    OK, here is a question for some of you football types. What is the advantage to an under inflated ball? I understand that the Pats are being accused of cheating because 11 of 12 footballs were under inflated, but what is the advantage?

  5. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:10 am on January 22nd, 2015

    The typo problem must be catching. That should be from a professional group.

  6. Wose-the small and meek
    9:36 am on January 22nd, 2015


    B,M, and L: Having an underinflated football gives the quarterback, receivers, and anyone else who touches the ball a better grip, particularly in the extreme cold weather. If that football had been inflated properly, the Pats may have won, but maybe the score might have been 21-7, instead of 45-7.

    Not that I am a football fan, but in my humble opinion, knowing that the Pats have cheated on more than one occasion, I think the win should go to the Colts by default. Sorry, Spence.

    Admin, hope you are tip-top soon!

  7. MTMP
    9:54 am on January 22nd, 2015

    Why would they trust one team with the responsibility of inflating the balls? Can’t one of those zebra guys be in charge? There are certainly enough of them.

    Mom is off to try to play “42” at the senior center again this a.m. She would rather crawl back in bed on this dreary morning but the doc said that is a no-no. I don’t know why. I am going to wrap myself back up in my new blankie until she gets home.

    Mom is so excited! The first picture of Gus mom sent to GLAD for the pencil drawing she won at the Snowhook auction was not in focus, so GLAD asked for a better copy to be sent. Mom found another picture of him (in focus) that GLAD really likes and she is going to do that one. Mom can’t wait to see the finished product!!

    10:25 am on January 22nd, 2015

    Thanks for the explanation Wose. They did a survey this morning on The Today Show,and I think 81% thought they should be baned from the Super Bowl. What is your opinion?

  10. Masquers
    10:28 am on January 22nd, 2015

    Heh, heh. Admin has met “our friend”, the otter.
    Dawson: Sorry, missed your post…by the time you were crawling out of bed, I was crawling in.
    New/last season (sob, sob) of Justified premiered on Tuesday, but I just got around to watching it last night. Looks like a humdinger of a final season…Raylan, Boyd and the others are going out with a bang.
    There are so few well written shows these days…we will surely miss this one. sniff.
    Morning everyone!

    10:32 am on January 22nd, 2015

    Boobear, that is exciting news.

    ML, what is 42? Is that a card game?

    Barb 42 is the state game of Texas. It is played with dominoes. Can’t tell you much more than that, because mom in a dunce at it, but she keeps showing up, hoping to get the hang of it. There are 42 possible points in a hand, hence the name.

  14. Wose-the small and meek
    10:38 am on January 22nd, 2015

    MTMP: I know of what your mom speaks. It is very hard to find the motivation to get out of bed, showered, and dressed. But if I didn’t do that, I guess I would smell like a skunk. Big hugs to your mom, and add some dainty licks from me.

    BooBear: I can’t wait to see the pencil drawing of Gus! I am looking forward to the May page of the calendar, since youse are on it, and I love the picture of Gus that your mom sent.

    B,M, and L: I agree with that 81%.

    Oh, last night the Prof and I watched “A Place in the Sun” with a young and gorgeous Elizabeth Taylor, and a most handsome Montgomery Clift. One of our faves.

    10:40 am on January 22nd, 2015

    Dawson–I’m so happy you’re back and recovering. Just keep repeating “Sleep is healing” and go with it.
    Meashka, Masquers and others–As Sharon indicated, quake was far from me and your questions were, indeed, the first I heard of it. (However, since I do hold some Tehachapi bonds, I am now a little worried about cash flow.
    I would also like to know what 42 is (besides being the ultimate answer to life, the universe, and everything).

  16. Diane C.
    10:41 am on January 22nd, 2015

    Oops–Answer to the 42 question went up as I was typing. so now I know.

    Under inflation

    Anyone who lives in cold weather can tell you that your car tires that are perfectly inflated in average weather will be less inflated when it is cold and more inflated when it is hot.

    That is the affect temperature has on air/water.

    So I am of the opinion that the balls were inflated inside, perfectly, and then when they got outside in the cold they uninflated because that is just the way it is.

    And if it is going to be that much of a deal then the league, those bird hating ba*tards, should just be the ones who judge the footballs worthiness. grump

    Did y’all know that the NFL is Non Profit and doesn’t pay any taxes?? double grump

  18. Staff
    10:59 am on January 22nd, 2015

    And did not both teams play with the same balls so they had an equal chance to benefit? The few times I watch it seems one of the officials takes the football in between plays and doesn’t let the players have it till the next play.

    Maybe someone interested in the outcome of the game bribed all the officials.

    Bunch of hooey anyway…

    11:04 am on January 22nd, 2015

    hmmmm. I seem to bee in a grumpy mood this morning. Sorry to take it out on all the football lovers.

    Buddy, The Plunderers are our nickname because of Professor Queen B’s amazing literary knowledge. She is a PHD in something like English Literature. Anyway she is retired from teaching, except us, and she explained that an alternate, or perhaps correct, meaning of plunder is to keep on working toward a goal through all problems and with all effort. So we Plunder On.

    IF IF IF the Patriots cheated, yes they should be banned. But it has to be proven. The prior video tape cheating WAS proven.
    And an under inflated ball is an advantage to the offense – if said ball can be put into play when the team is throwing and catching it, it gives better grip potential.

    Buddy – continuing prayers for your Melanie. And we just want to go on record as saying your whole family has such positive outlook and attitude, no matter what. You are inspiring.

    Dawson – sigh. It will get better.

    ML – when you get the hang of 42, we want a lesson.

    MTMP. Mom’s mom was from a farm in Nebraska. Therefore, the game played by the family at holidays with a lot of gusto is canasta! Everyone learns at an early age. The spouses that married into the family not interested go to the shop and drink beer (Dad started that tradition. He tried to learn once, but said we kept changing the rules…NOT true, just a lot to know!)

    We got around 3 inches of snow last night and now a high wind is starting. I am going to pretend I am in the Arctic, and mom is going to hibernate.

    I don’t like football well enough to have an opinion on under-inflated footballs, but Staff’s explanations make sense to me.

    Hi Darah!

  27. Siber-H
    11:51 am on January 22nd, 2015

    Barb! I am glad Miss Maggie went down the stairs. I don’t know what to suggest now except to keep on practicing. You might try giving her a high-value treat immediately upon reaching the bottom of the stairs.
    Mom taught me to get in the back of our truck and on the scales at the vets office that way. In the beginning, I refused to get on the scales at the vets office (don’t ask) so mom tried the walking and running me up on them, and it only took a few times of that before I agreed to forget I didn’t want to get up on the scales.

    12:12 pm on January 22nd, 2015

    I’ll be doing all the training myself. The professional orgs have their own dogs and use those and don’t train one you bring in. Which, I totally understand. Anyway, we’ll have lots of time to work on it. If it doesn’t work out (either because pup doesn’t wanna, or I’m a rotten trainer), it’s all right, I’ll have had the experience and I can go back to school. Regardless, new pup will always have a home here, because that’s just how we roll. Thanks Staff for explaining the plundering, that’s definitely something I can get behind! Also…I don’t know nothing of football. Or 42, for that matter. Grew up in Texas and managed to never have heard of it.

    Hey Kat, thanks for the shoutout! Yes I did pretty good at only my 3rd race! I haven’t mastered the concept that I am supposed to catch everybody in front of me and not let anybody past, especially another dog right at the end! I am still a youngster so I have plenty of more races ahead of me to beat dogs in!
    Yes my poor Mom is still beat up from that race, she’s not a young pup like me anymore!
    It was good seeing you and Mama Meash although Z wasn’t too happy to see me!!!

    Admin: Typots are one of the side-effects of hip replacement surgery about which they do not tell you.

    Football: My real opinion about football is that it should be banned because of all the traumatic brain injuries involved.

    SiberH: Enjoy the Arctic weather but don’t get in any trouble while your mum is hibernating.
    I had planned on enjoying the Arctic weather this winter by cross country skiing or snow bike riding. The skis are still somewhere in the garage gathering dust and I would have to shovel a path to get to the bike. Ain’t gonna happen.

    I ran out of books to read while I was mid-route on the bus. I picked up 3 books from the free bookshelf in Dawson Creek. Two romances published about 40 years ago and one that is a science fiction romance that had a picture of an incredibly well built man on the front. Heh! Did I mention that I am on d r u g s?

    I am going to try quitting the codeine painkillers today and moving to regular painkillers. I’m afraid I am starting to love the codeine. I remember when you could get codeine cough medicine over the counter.

    I misplaced one of my medications yesterday and after searching high and low finally found it in the dishes cupboard.

    Those wanting to email me about sponsoring dogs can do so and I will reply by tomorrow, I think.

    Meashka, I can’t find the email that you sent on Monday. I have four email accounts that all come into one account. I looked at all of them to see it your email had slipped into a spam folder.

    Please send the next email directly to my top account that all my other accounts forward to. j2reneau at gmail dot com

    TeddyRR: I loved the “Where’s Teddy” video. I could look at pictures of you and Zeta all day long. Way to catch that quick kiss with her. You are at the top of your game!

    Tundra: Nice picture of 4 Sibers and 2 worn out racers…or was this taken before the race? Heh! I see Rays head is cut off in the photo. The photographer evidently went to Mollypop’s Mom’s School of Photography. Rio will notice that!

    I really like Staff’s explanation of “plunderer.” The word is from the German and it means baggage (or junk). I always told my students to plunder their minds (go through the baggage there) to find answers and solutions. In other words, they had the ability to use their minds to solve problems. At some point Spence asked what we would do when computers/technology took over the world and I answered that we should just plunder on. Thereafter he started to call us the Plunderers.

    Don’t you love the expression, “until the cows come home”! I used to know its origin. I’ll have to check.

    Been a couple of minutes since we said anything. Oops, half of the HOH were naughty girls this a.m. Blondie excavated under the fence with a bit of help by LLtheL. Mom had no clue. Darling Darah tattled on us, honked and honked at the fence till mom came out to see Darah staring down the driveway. I (Pookey) gave mom a clue but she is a dense 2 legger. She found the hole blondie made with LL’s help and they were OFF!. Mom jumped in the car and did the neighborhood, the 63 acres and quarry and the big road twice. Talked to several folks but no one had seen our miscreants. Just as mom was about to give up and come home to make “Lost Dog” flyers, she decided to look at the big road one more time. Blondie crossed the street in front of her. Yowser! No LLtheL so she headed home but in the rear view saw a black shadow with a curled tail. Voila! Herd intact. and considering fence/perimeter options.

    (Pant, pant, pant) Wow, Mr. Siber H I am sure you will be on my side of today’s great escape. Lots of excavation, lots of running, lots of barking. Oh, what fun we had. Don’t know why mom was so perturbed. The only thing missing was my favorite guy. If you get more snow, let me know. Mom said it might could snow next week but not to count on it. I don’t count much anyway.

    RIO! Is there room for me in the grumpy corner? Everything seems to be irritating me lately. I have some stout in the frig I can bring over.

    Dawson, I love when the doctors gives me d*r*u*g*s. Love having anesthesia too. It is the only time I sleep well. Tuck yourself good and tight under the quilt. Hope you are feeling tip-top soon!

    Home from the shelf! Mom still likes her new work arrangement! And she still likes her new boss. What does this mean? Why of course I am pawsitive it means that her job will soon be “right-sourced”.
    Zoe, got your email and responded. Thanks much!

    The sponsorship of Melanie the pup not the person is proceeding nicely. In the meantime I keep begging Mom to let me sponsor Clyde, Quigley, Louisa Mae, and Amalia. She says no way I have enough treatsie money for that. HRMPH. In the meantime, someone is waiting patiently in the wings to put some money toward Josephine. So, if you are thinking of putting in some more dollars (and who among us doesn’t need to cut down on treats to watch our girlish and manly figures?), please send me what you can give toward Melanie and Doc.

    Teddy! Great videos! In the first one, you are a camouflage expert. Oh yes you are. And in the second, we clearly saw THE KISS. Woo Hoo!!!! We love kisses! Giving and getting.

    Mom has never heard of a game named 42, but she does (did) know canasta. That was a favorite Of her aunt and cousin and Mom too, although not as much as pinochle and hearts and “Oh Hell”. Those were the favorites of the entire family, including aunta and uncles.

    Revving up the Bulldozer here. We have exposed a scandal of gigantic proportions here in our part of the state. Seriously – not kidding. Thousands of people are affected, and don’t even know it yet.
    We are contacting an investigative reporter we know – other people are contacting lawyers and administrators.
    It is a very long story, but the short end of it is that in recent health care coverage, one agency omitted a VERY important fact – that if you had their coverage, you could have your Baystate doctor and you could go to the (only) local hospital. However – you were NOT covered for the doctors IN that hospital. And if you had the coverage for the doctors in the hospital, you could no longer see your Baystate doctor. Why is this important – because in this town alone, Baystate doctors have 8000 patients. And not one of us can go to the only local hospital and be cared for by a doctor.
    And no one knew this.

    Until the Bulldozer started up.

  65. c.hobbit
    7:10 pm on January 22nd, 2015

    Supposed to start snowing in Willow in a couple of hours and continue for the next 2 days. Same level of accumulation expected. This is more of a crystaline snow rather than fat, wet flakes so hopefully will stick around. Temps are to be above zero and into the 20s for at least a week so no melting expected.

    Rio, your friend wants to fund you, but I think she means she will be funding your trip to Timbuktu. Heh!

  82. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:41 pm on January 22nd, 2015

    Kat!…I think you must be mistaken…sniff!…My friend would never fund me….grunt!

    Staff!…I wonder if Staffie is still Grumpy…sniff!…How would she feel if she was always grumpy most of the time, like me?…gah!…Could she live with herself? Probably, because her grumpiness is not truly deep grumpiness. She has things, like hobbies and friends and even Mr.FireSlippers to cheer her up on grumpy days….grunt!…I venture to say that she is quite happy tonight doing something she likes…heh!

    Parenthood!…Every episode so far has ripped my heart out. I am talking years of heart ripping here…sniffle!…I don’t know if I can bear to watch the true ending of an amazing, remarkable, funny, smart, incredibly sensitive and knowing series…sniffle!sneeze!

    That mess with the hospital and docs sounds like my snafu of a couple of days ago. Go get ’em Amalia!

    I toured a senior living facility today which was very nice, but if just don’t know if I am ready to live with people my mom’s age exclusively. Must sleep and ponder now. Night framily!

    Emmys?…And yet? Have they won any awards?…sniff!…Has Justified won any awards?…..NOPE!…To me this means Awards really have very little meaning at all…wuffle!

    Go Pink Bulldozer! Sounds like you have the routine down about calling out just the right kind of troops. The agency that let this happen ……is it an HMO? When you sign on with most HMO’s you KNOW up front you must use their Dr.’s….key words UP FRONT. I will be waiting to hear the outcome.

    11:18 pm on January 22nd, 2015

    ML!…That is a hefty decision to make…snort!…Why not just down-size to a smaller house or even a townhome or condo…sniff!…Why do live in a senior living facility when you still have your good health? You do still have your good health, right?…grunt!

    Rio, I cheered up! I went over to the fabric store where I work and helped out. Then just before I had to leave another teacher came in and had to teach 3 eight year olds how to sew pajama pants. Better her than me! I was really happy to leave! Although I did help her getting all the bobbins filled and the machines threaded up.

    Tomorrow pizza with the Turtleman and his wife and my Jim. And cards I bet.

    Rio, Rio Jr’s name was first on the list so I don’t know why you keep asking if he is funded. Was it an incorrect list?

    I think I will have another piece of candy.

    Mr.Fireslippers is taking the little (but growing bigger every day) kittens a fleece blankie. He thinks that a nice flannel quilt is not warm enough for the little rascals. They already got out of their room once tonight. That Henry is getting big and strong.

    ML, We are curious too. Just like Rio TEP. It doesn’t hurt to keep your options open though. Not all the people in those facilities are really old. (Well since I am 66 I think that is not too really old)

    Woo Hoo: now they are saying that 14″ are to fall in the next 24 hours! Not snowing at the moment …

    ML: look at different senior places. There are not only good ones out there but cool ones also. Most larger cities have senior living condos and apartments that aren’t for “old” people. You could probably even be a complementary guest for a day or two to check things out. Of all the places my parents were at, only one had great food, two places had inedible food and two had adequate meals. I always thought that was odd given how important food and meal times are and given how much the residents were paying.

    ML, We ditto what others have said about a senior living facility. Around here, we have “55 and better” communities. You buy a house, and they take care of grounds, lawn, snow removal, etc. they sometimes have social halls, dining rooms, walking trails, golf courses, etc, but NO KIDS. Maybe you can find something like that instead?

    new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject however I simply
    had to ask. Appreciate it!
