    Fractious? It must be Friday in Paris.

    Howlers, evidently 2 separate locations. One a print shop, second a kosher grocery.

    Everyone, Be careful on the icy roads.

    Um, OK, confused. This has something to do with the YA series?
    (Is the owl part of that? Good picture of the owl, anyway.)
    Also, Good Morning to All.

  13. Masquers
    10:36 am on January 9th, 2015

    DianeC: Yes, Woof is the first book in the new series. We are not sure about the owl either. Maybe someone else knows.

    MPM–Base 16? Aaagh! (Base 10 was once explained to me as quite logical, and it seemed so during the explanation, but then…yikes!) You have my admiration.
    Tupper’s Mama–Sequoyah/Sequoia rocks indeed–and his system is reportedly a more logical way to read and write, once you learn it. Good on him!
    HOH–As you note, I discovered a whole passel of Cherokee-themed places and artifacts in TN, including a carving of Seq. at a museum there. (And in case there’s anyone interested, the Cherokee Nation website offers an online course in learning the Cherokee language–along with specs for what kind of capabilities your computer needs to do so.)
    Awaiting news from France with the rest of you…

  15. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    10:59 am on January 9th, 2015

    What is the recommended age range for YA?

    Barb’s boss called and told her he saw about 50 cars in ditches this morning on his 1 1/2 hour drive.

    Mama says she just can’t seem to get away from those birds. Her people really don’t like them – so much so that they don’t even call them by name. Yet lately, they have been everywhere. FB posts, news shows, magazines. And the other night, one flew DIRECTLY over her windshield on the highway. Gave her a major case of the shudders.
    Now we find OFA’s new, greatly anticipated book has one of those birds.
    Sheesh, couldn’t it have been a pelican?

  17. dawson
    11:04 am on January 9th, 2015

    I guess there is an owl named Night Train in the book.

    Good morning everyone.

  18. B.Stover
    11:05 am on January 9th, 2015

    Night Train is Birdie’s good luck owl.

  19. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    11:07 am on January 9th, 2015

    We love owls. Why do you not like them?

    Gunfire and explosions at print shop.

  20. B.Stover
    11:09 am on January 9th, 2015

    But Tupper and Gilly, what about Hedwig?

  21. BearSpiritDog

    We Like Owls too.
    Royals, Please Explain.

  22. O'Howlers
    11:21 am on January 9th, 2015

    B,M,&L: YA means younger than 75.

  23. BearSpiritDog
    11:33 am on January 9th, 2015

    O’Howlers: We thought it meant Young Always.

  24. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:43 am on January 9th, 2015

    Young!…Adult Pug…snort!

    Stover!…Did you enjoy WOOF?…chuffle!…What a dumb question!

  25. B.Stover
    11:45 am on January 9th, 2015

    Barb: The American Library Association defines “young adult” as twelve to eighteen years of age.

  26. Tupper's Mama
    11:46 am on January 9th, 2015

    Charlie suspects killed in siege. Just on the internet, live report

  27. B.Stover
    11:50 am on January 9th, 2015

    Rio: Woof is excellent! Birdie says Night Train is her good luck owl which upsets Bowser. Then she says, “‘Of course, he belongs to nobody.’ Whew! I did not like the idea of Birdie having an owl, not one little bit. Me and Birdie: a team. Wasn’t that obvious? And there was no room for more. My mind was absolutely made up on that question, case closed” (216).

  28. Tupper's Mama
    11:54 am on January 9th, 2015

    Ok – now as to those birds:
    Native Americans tend to be on one side of that coin or the others. Many Nations revere and respect those birds. However, just as many other Nations see them as purveyors of bad luck, or even precursors of death.

    In the southwest, the Pueblo potters have created those birds for generations to sit on their windowsills with the idea that the stronger, more aggressive Nations (Navajo and Apache) who fear those birds would not raid their homes.

    The Storyteller comes from a Nation that also avoids that bird, but not to the extent that we do. It is just the way it is – why do people avoid black cats, broken mirrors and the number 13. None of those things bother us in the least. Nor do we knock on wood, gather 4 leaf clovers or cross ourselves.
    Its all how you are raised.

    12:02 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Stover!….Excellant!…wheeze!…The sad thing is I don’t think I will survive the winter to be able to read that book…sob!sob!sob!…sniffle!

  30. BearSpiritDog
    12:36 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Royal Mum: Thank you for the Familial Background on Owls.
    In Our Experience Owl can be a Spirit Guide and Crow can bring Messages of Impending Trouble. Even the gentler birds such as wrens and robins speak to Those Who Listen….as perhaps does All of Nature.

  31. BearSpiritDog
    12:37 pm on January 9th, 2015

    B: Woozer! We are going Love Woof!!

  32. B.Stover
    12:43 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Rio: You’ll survive the winter never fear. It just seems horrendous. We have about six inches of snow which is quite beautiful glistening in the sun.

    In Paris on the Arch of Triomphe, they have a lighted sign, “Paris Est Charlie.”

    Grammar: “Its” is a possessive pronoun. If you can use “his” then “its” is correct. If not, you mean “it is” and the apostrophe is needed in place of the missing letter: “it’s.” End of lesson.

  33. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    12:48 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Barb is mad at me because I just killed a squirrel. What does she expect, if he’s in my dam yard he is fair game. Little bugger couldn’t run fast enough in the deep snow. That makes Maggie 2, squirrels nuttin. Barb says her stomach is all queasy.

  34. Siber-H
    12:49 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Love the cover of Wolf!
    Night Train is a cool name for an owl. There was an owl that lived and hunted around my dog park for quite awhile.

    Rio, pal, you will make it through the winter. You really will. Just hang in there.

  35. Tupper's Mama
    12:51 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Bee – hanging our head in typo shame.

  36. Siber-H
    12:51 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Maggie, You Go Girl!
    (whispering) Barb will get over it.

  37. BearSpiritDog
    1:04 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Tupper’s Mama: We couldn’t find your Grammatical Error…Probably reading every other word again.

    Hey for Maggie! (apologies to Barb).

  38. Herd of Hounds
    1:10 pm on January 9th, 2015

    LL the L here for Maggie, Really, a squirrel? I keep trying but those little buggers can climb trees…Not fair! I get voles and moles and gophers and sushi…I want a squirrel! Maggie, who’s a good girl? YOU!

    On the unfortunate note in France, some of the hostages at the second site were killed 🙁 But the Bros that began it yeaterday are gone, thank dog. Don’t mess with the frogs!

  39. B.Stover
    1:11 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Sorry about the grammar lesson. I’ve been seeing “its” used incorrectly for a while now and it just irritates me. No big deal and I’ll get over it.

    I think Maggie should be ashamed of herself. I like squirrels.

  40. BearSpiritDog
    1:19 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Okay…Now we see it…in the Last Sentence…its instead of it’s.
    But in the Royal Mum’s defense we don’t think it was intentional…just the Otter Cork on the job.
    B: As for your irritation over Grammar Slips, as an English Professor how can you Not be?

  41. Herd of Hounds
    1:24 pm on January 9th, 2015

    T&G’s Mama, 50 lashes with a wet noodle for your grammatical oops!

  42. dawson
    1:27 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Heh, heh.
    BStover: I went back to check it wasn’t me that wrote its! It seems I wan’t the only one.

  43. B.Stover
    1:30 pm on January 9th, 2015

    It’s the “Arc” of Triomphe, not the “arch” which is English. And, of course, its “de” not “of.” I think I’d better stop now.

  44. Martha
    1:53 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Good Mid-Afternoon! I am taking a quick break while I have a prep period. Another 2 hour delay today. The roads and cold are deadly in the early morning, but those 2 hours do make a difference.
    I know that YA is targeted towards the 12 to 18 group, but I find that I enjoy many of the titles. Sometimes the students tell me about a new book that they are enjoying. The most recent one I read was “The Boy on the Wooden Box” by Leon Leyson. It is an autobiography of one of the youngest people on Schindler’s list. I find that I can easily finish YA books. During the winter when the standardized tests are looming on the horizon, a book that I can easily finish is the best book ever!
    Have a safe travel day.

  45. Tupper and Gilly
    2:03 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Bee – not excusing but our big computer always otter corks it’s to its. No idea why. Our tablet and phone don’t. We try to catch it but it does slip through.

    And we understand how it gets to you. Our bugaboo is when people modify “unique”.

  46. Masquers

    This is serious. B is now correcting herself.

  47. B.Stover
    2:18 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Tupper and Gilly: I have a friend who gets livid over the use of “literally” as in, “I literally froze to death.” I sometimes use it incorrectly just to annoy him.

  48. B.Stover
    2:19 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Masquers is making me laugh.

  49. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    3:05 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Barb here. I feel bad because the squirrels are attracted to the bird feeders that I put out. They are close to the patio, so in this snow the poor things just can’t run fast enough to get out of the yard. He almost made it. I didn’t mind when it was rats, and Maggie just thinks she is doing her job to rid the premises of all little furry things. It was still gruesome to watch.

    I have a funny one for you – saw a F B posting with a pic of someone’s kids. She said “They are really cute and there smart too. I oh so wanted to comment!

  50. dawson
    3:05 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Masquers: Perhaps B’s brain has frozen in “correct” mode. It will thaw out eventually.
    I do notice when someone uses “literally” unliterally.

  51. Herd of Hounds
    3:44 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Y’all are cracking our mom up! She is ROFL! It, It’s Its, there, their. they’re, hear, here, so, sew and sew on! Chortle, snuffle.

  52. Herd of Hounds
    3:48 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Martha, thank you for the book shout out. When mom taught literacy she tried to keep up with new “YA” books (6th grade and up). Now that she is retarded, she has to rely “on the company of strangers”.

    3:48 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Night Train, is that supposed to a ring a bell or something ?

  54. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    3:55 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Hello NASHWA. Maybe I should click on your link. Wait, I think I’ll go ask Rio first.

    Here’s one more. My DIL emailed the other day that she would let everyone know the amount do on our meat order.

  55. Masquers
    4:27 pm on January 9th, 2015

    B, Barb & Dawson: Their (heh, heh just kidding) There are so many mistakes on F/b and I have to believe most of these are intelligent people. Proper use of the English language has gone the way of the Dodo.

  56. Herd of Hounds

    We agree. Us it pisses off!

    It is very difficult to use the computer when a certain blond dog wants to lay across the keyboard and take over the mouse. I am miffed. And even though it is only 30 minutes early, mom refuses to make with the doggy dinner. Again, miffed.

    It is really gray and cold here, but at least we don’t have any of that wet stuff.

    Wish I had anything interesting to say, but sadly, that is not the case. Take care.

  60. dawson
    5:48 pm on January 9th, 2015

    If I wait until I had something interesting to share then my posts would be few and far apart. What is interesting to me right now is a nap.

  61. Herd of Hounds

    Barb, don’t feel guilty. Squirrels are just rats with fuzzy tails.
    We love Rob Lowe on Parks and Rec. We LITERALLY love him! Heh!
    Martha, thanks for the knotting/sewing/crocheting instructions. Not gonna’ happen here. T.C. would like it if we could purchase more of those mousies though. That was her very favorite Christmas present. It was the most unique. Heh!!

    6:45 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Saw where actor Rod Taylor passed today. Mom always thought he was a) good looking and b) talented. Never knew he was an Aussie. Are there any ugly guys down under? We should ask Liz.

  66. Masquers

  68. Diane C.
    6:58 pm on January 9th, 2015

    B. Stover–should I even ask how you feel about people who use what I think of as “pre-emptive” apostrophes for plurals? (I think they’re a pre-emptive decision for those who aren’t sure whether or not to use one, so just throw one in anyway, as in
    “With best regards from the Quinn’s”)
    I like owls, but wish they were vegetarian.
    HOH–“Don’t mess with the frogs” Yeah.

  69. Diane C.
    7:07 pm on January 9th, 2015

    HOH–RIP Rod Taylor–I had a crush on him as a child–he starred in a TV show called Hong Kong. As to your question, Barry Humphries (aka Dame Edna Everage–another role model of mine) is Australian.

  70. Herd of Hounds
    7:07 pm on January 9th, 2015

    “Pre-emptive” apostrophies? He, he, he, chortle,. gawfaw!

  73. Herd of Hounds
    7:22 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Lucy Lou here and want y’all to know that I am putting that rotten POP back into their cages. Silly critters!

  74. Herd of Hounds
    7:26 pm on January 9th, 2015

    DianeC. and Martha, our mom too likes YA books and finds it interesting that we are supposed to “grow out” of the era. Mom is kind of Peter Pan…”I won’t grow up”.

  75. Diane C.
    7:26 pm on January 9th, 2015

    And finally–Not that anyone asked, but “Night Train” has a special significance in these parts (I just googled and found what I wanted–[a beverege] “for the economical drunkard”

    I really am going to try and make it to the gym now…

  76. Herd of Hounds
    7:42 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Along that line there is a wine label called “Night Harvest”.

    Just had our friend Bill the Drummer over for dinner and laughter and great conversation.
    Last summer, he mentioned to us in passing that he had always wanted a (Mohawk, hand-made lacrosse) stick. We got him one for Christmas. But instead of wrapping it, we got a twig from the back yard, and wrapped that up with very fancy paper and bow and ribbons. He was so excited to get such a beautiful package. When he opened it, we proudly told him that we remembered he always wanted a “stick” – and here it was.

    Bill’s face was priceless. He is way too much of a gentleman to say anything outright, but he definitely should not ever play poker.
    The Storyteller broke up first – so then he went and got the lacrosse stick out of the closet. Too funny. And Bill the Drummer was so happy to finally get his own stick.

  85. BearSpiritDog

  94. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:36 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Upset!…So I have to tell you all something. It happened today and really upset someone’s mother…snuffle!…We were all lazing about this afternoon when the “City” decided it was time for someone to clean out the gutters which have been clogged with ice for the last three plus weeks…grunt!…So this guy comes along in his City Machine and starts shoving piles of ice from the corner to the front of my house…sniff!…We all thought there would be a truck coming along so he could use his machine to load it onto a truck and take it away….wheeze!….Oh no! He picked up load after load of this chemically treated, oil soaked snow and piled it up on mother’s carefully groomed lawn…yeeeep!…She blew a gasket! She got her coat on and went outside and told that City Guy to stop dumping that horrible ice on her beloved lawn and get the hell away from my house…snort!snort!…Beau and I cheered her on from behind the window…heh!heh!…When my friend came home she noticed 3 big piles of dirty ice piled on the lawn. Her mother lamented and lamented about it. As her lawn is really the only true thing she cares about. So it was a bit distressing….wuffle!…Do youse guys think the lawn will die where the big piles of dirty ice have been dumped?…gruffle!

  95. BearSpiritDog
    10:48 pm on January 9th, 2015

    Rio: Call the City and Tell Them to Get That Oily Snow Off Off Off your lawn and Pronto!!!

  97. Riö – The Evil Pug

    Bear!…My friend suggested this right off the bat but the trouble is, and they both agree, is that the “City” would do more damage taking the ice off the lawn by destroying the sidewalk and who knows what in the the process…snort!…They are a bunch of “Dumb Bastards” and no one has any regard for them…sniff! ….I could tell you another horror story about my friends drive into the busy-place yesterday due to City Workers, but this may have to wait for another time…grumble!

    Rio, Tell your friend to take pictures….pictures of it now and pictures of it as it melts.

    I agree with Bear. Call the city. I am sure the stupid jerk was not suppose to dump it on a lawn.

    In Minneapolis they pile it on the boulevard and when it gets piled too high on the corners they eventually come with trucks and take it away. They usually unload the trucks on frozen lakes or big parking lots. Not too good for the lakes I suppose.

    But mostly what happens is the streets just get narrower and narrower and eventually they decree ‘one side parking’ which can cause other problems but the fire trucks have to be able to get down the streets. A lot of times you have to wait on the streets if someone is coming from the other direction because both vehicles will not fit on the street at the same time.

    Winter is interesting.

    Oh and I was going to tell you about Mr.Fireslippers. Tonight the Turtleman and his wife and Mr.F and I were playing cards. Mr.F got hungry and got out some cheese and crackers. He was having a lot of trouble with the cheese cutter and grumbling about how bad it was. It was sort of shaving the cheese but only with a lot of effort.

    He was using a carrot peeler.

    The turtleman says he will deny this story if I put it up here, but you all know Mr.Fireslippers history. You will know the truth.

    Night all. Except Liz and Ruby in OZ. G’day Liz.

    If the lawn is damaged (remember, I know nothing about grass) do we have the slim hope the city will repair the damaged lawn?

    Yark. We know what you mean about inept workers making matters worse. If they were dumb enough to pile it on the lawn in the first place, it is doubtful they will be smart enough to take care of things without causing further damage.

    Rio – our solution would be to call the city but ask to be notified when the removal will happen so someone can be there to supervise.
    But do take pictures. Take them now, and at least once a week for the rest of the winter. Then when spring comes, keep taking pictures as the lawn grows in. If it is damaged, you have a photo record of why it is damaged.
    But we agree – the city worker should not have dumped city waste on private property.

    Growl. Sounds like a Code Violation to Me. Where’s Attorney Meash?

    Gasp, But will the city use a loophole by saying the gunk was dropped on their easement instead of private property, and they can do as they please on their easement. My city would claim that.

    Staff, the carrot peeler. That’s funny.

    Night All

    SiberH!…Taking Photoz is a good idea!….snort!…My friend might call the city on her own, but the nagging thing is they will cause yet more damage if they come back…gah!…We all spent 90 plus days almost trapped in the house as they, the City, re-laid the water pipelines last summer…I think I mentioned my friend losing it one morning and tossing orange cones off the street and yelling “U Frigging Assholes” …heh!heh!

    City!…Probably closed for the weekend…grump!…But my friend says she will call an place a formal complaint and document the ice piles and the grass dying so that Wookies Paw, our Lawyer, can sue the pants of the inept City Workers come Spring Time – but only If I survive this winter long enough to see justice served….grump!

    Having been named after a stick, I think Bill is a wise man to want a stick of his very own.

    Rio: My Lady still laughs at the cone incident. That is the stuff of which AJ moments are made.
