Nightmare in the Fens

“I had a terrible nightmare last night,” Spence says. “Want to hear it?”

“Describe a dream, lose a reader,” says Admin. “But go ahead.”

“Okay. I dreamed Fenway Park was getting bulldozed. The infield looked like an open-pit mine.”

“Did they find the rest of Ted Williams?”

“That’s not funny. What do you think the dream means?”

“Bet the ranch on the Red Sox. Dreams run counterclockwise.”

Welcome Miss Pretty & Edgar.

    Good morning! Sox won big last night, but we aren’t betting our ranch. Lots of pies today, though!

    Thank you Hobbit and AJ for the Nana news. We were hoping she was off theventilator, but it does sound like good improvements. Miss her so much.

    Where does one rent a bulldozer?

    Good morning all.

    Morning all.

    Beautiful fall morning here in Westchester.

    Red Sox-Wow!
    Carlos Beltran-Wow!

    Still sending strong prayers to Nana…I miss her very much.

    Praying that Liz in Oz stays safe.

    HRH,B: My favorite pie is cherry! :^)

    We didn’t watch the game, but are still cheering for the Cards. We are doing that in honor of Barb’s mom, who was a huge fan.

    Hope to hear more good news from Scott today. Thanks for the hospital address.

    Good morning, everyone! HRH B and Tupper’s Mama, you are cracking us up. Not to brag but cold here by our standards (40*F @ 9 a.m.) Only in the high 50’s today and possible freeze tonight. Melanie, we can see the Pack acting that way because when we, the HOH, bark at anything (real or imagined) baby Darah runs behind mom to be protected, scheech! Ah baseball and pie, whadda day!

    BTW, have a thorough Thursday.

    It was 31 at our place this morning. We love it, but the chickens? Not so sure…it was 35 in their coop!

  8. Barb & Maggie
    10:05 am on October 24th, 2013

    Oleys, One of our city visitors to our farm asked “When do the chickens get their winter feathers?”

  9. Herd of Hounds
    10:21 am on October 24th, 2013

    The POP has been molting for about 2 weeks. Mom told them to grow more feathers ’cause she wasn’t turning up the heater just for nekkid birds.

    We are having Pancakes and bacon this morning. I need my strength if I am going to be at camp till Sunday. Only problem is I halved all of the recipe except the milk. So Mr.Staff says we are having crepes. Oh well I expect they will taste OK.

    (I almost wrote “eat OK” as a sort of joke but decided B would not like to read that.)

    HEY – SHUT THE DOOR! I’m (un)dressing here!

  12. Herd of Hounds
    11:08 am on October 24th, 2013

    (wolf whistle) Whoo hoo! That is one nekkid bird.

  13. Barb & Maggie
    11:29 am on October 24th, 2013

    What is wrong with that parrot?

  14. Herd of Hounds
    11:31 am on October 24th, 2013

    Just exactly what is going on here? Yesterday was pug porn, today is parrot porn. What’s next? Pigs, pandas, porcupines?

  15. O'Howlers
    11:33 am on October 24th, 2013

    Now we will never get that image out of our minds. Argh!

  16. Herd of Hounds
    11:33 am on October 24th, 2013

    Barb: My guess would be either a genetic problem or a disease. That is because there are only feathers on top of it (the crest). If it were a self-mutilator the feathers on the head (cheeks, around the eyes, back of head) would still be there.

  17. Herd of Hounds
    11:34 am on October 24th, 2013

    OH: Check that capon in your freezer.

  18. Tupper and Gilly
    11:39 am on October 24th, 2013

    Ummm – we hate to be judgmental, but that is one ugly bird.

    Think maybe that is a Cardinal after what the Sox did to them last night?

  19. Herd of Hounds
    11:47 am on October 24th, 2013

    Knew someone would get this here blog back to beisbol (heh, heh). Just didn’t think it would be the royal mama.

    Do any of you eastern Plunderers ever get near Springfield MA?

    There is The Fiber Festival of New England, being held at the Eastern States Exposition, in W. Springfield, MA. on November 2nd and 3rd. A sewing machine collector who has an 1877 Singer head I want will be visiting there.

    I was wondering if a plunderer would be able to meet her and pick up the head and hold it for me until I can visit and pick it up from her, or send another sewing machine collector to pick it up? You might have to hold it till next summer.

    Someone with a newly clean basement it on my ‘hope for’ list, but she is often away on weekends…

    T&G are trying to suck up to Admin. Heh!

    11:48 am on October 24th, 2013

    Fenway Park bulldozed! Yark!!! That is a nightmare.
    I do not want Fenway Park to share the same fate as the old Yankee Stadium. sniff

    AJ and C.Hobbit, Thanks for the update on Nana. We miss her so much but know she will return to the blog. Prayers for her are continuing.

    Stover and Golinka, I’m laughing at your first two posts.

  23. Barb & Maggie
    12:04 pm on October 24th, 2013

    A self-mutilating parrot, Oh My Dawg! I would guess that would be from stress or boredom.

    Barb is going over to the school to pick up Jack. The library just contacted us and they have Silent Night (Raine Stockton #5) in on a hold for Barb. Now we have 3 books from the library that need to be read and returned in two weeks. Better get crackin!

    1:00 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Staff – really? Do you know someone with a newly cleaned basement who lives a mere half hour from West Springfield?
    Hmmm. Bet she is a really wonderful person who could be talked into it.

  26. Terry Ballard

    Beautiful morning in Westchester Cty? I’ll second that.

    Terry, that is such a great picture! Where in Westchester was it taken?

  28. dawson
    2:18 pm on October 24th, 2013

    If anything could “jinx” the Red Sox winning the Series, it would be if Spence or Bernie “bet the ranch”.

    Rent a bulldozer at the Cat rental store.

    O’Howlers: Most of those obsessive behaviors seem normal to me.

  29. Herd of Hounds
    2:41 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Dawson: Mom agrees with the obsessive behaviors being normal and so do we. Cut tell us why on dog’s earth someone would want to rent a cat?

    2:52 pm on October 24th, 2013

    HOH: Mice?

    I see from last night’s late posts that both CHobbit and AJ sent us updates via facebookie and Scott. Thank you both. Go Nana!

    2:54 pm on October 24th, 2013


    Hmmm, our Pumpkin Getting Ride turned into doing errands and not a single Pumpkin was bought. Jeeze Louise! Too expensive!

    We are now home and tired.

    Lovely picture Terry.
    I know where B. Stover can get a backhoe, but not a bulldozer. (T&G, where did we park that last?)
    That is one sorry looking bird.
    Staff, Springfield is close, but don’t know what I’ll be doing then.
    Chickens getting their winter feathers . . snicker. They could just wear a duck and call it their down jackets.
    Can’t remember anything else . . The brain grows weary.
    Oh, Hi Dawson!

    Also, Widdershins is a totally cool word and appropriate.

  32. staff
    3:14 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Dear Tupper & Gilly,
    Well if you are willing I will talk again to my contact and see what day and when and all that there stuff. And then I will have an excuse to visit. A 136 year old excuse. Heh heh heh.

    Melanie, you are off the hook on this one. I have hit my target and am locked and loaded. I hope. However if I get over that way you will be on my list. ;-D

    Now I am off to my Quilting retreat. I am only taking 3 machines. Did I already tell you that? A Singer featherweight from 1938, A young 99K handcrank from the 50’s and my 1973 Bernina 830. snicker. Yes, I am showing off.

  33. Barb & Maggie
    3:26 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Down jacket? Wish we had thought of that as a comeback. Good one Melanie.

    We were also asked one time if the ducks were going to be geese when they grew up. Oh my, some people are clueless.

    Found an interesting video on life in Whttier, AK.

  35. Melanie
    4:09 pm on October 24th, 2013

    And here is where the town is located. Back to snoozing

  36. Wose
    4:24 pm on October 24th, 2013

    OHs: Have you heard any news about Nana?

  37. Herd of Hounds
    4:30 pm on October 24th, 2013

    A very novel way to organize a town. Thanks for the video, Melanie. Wonder if there are any other communities with a main residence?

  38. Macy's mom
    4:35 pm on October 24th, 2013

    And after watching the video that Melanie shared (you all live in the same building?) I found this rather heartbreaking one from a fellow in Willow.

    Picture taken on campus at the College of New Rochelle.

  40. Macy's mom
    5:03 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Am I the only one who did not know that Masquers is with Bear Spirit dog?

  41. Barb & Maggie
    5:23 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Macy, What do you mean? Do you mean they live in the same household, or do you mean Masquers is a spirit cat? If that is what you mean, then we did not know that either.

    Do you think Barb could order two of the large antler chews from Rick and have you bring them when you do your meet and greet? That way he wouldn’t have to ship them. They are processed in the USA, correct?

  42. Macy's mom
    5:41 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Barb, yes all USA antlers. Two large, being ordered as we speak.

    Yes, apparently Masquers is a spirit cat as well.

  43. Siber-H
    6:05 pm on October 24th, 2013

    What leads you guys to believe Masquers is a spirit kat?
    If this is true, I didn’t know it either.

  44. Melanie
    6:13 pm on October 24th, 2013

    BearSpiritDog is a dog that liveson a different reality plane.

    Masquers is a jazz playing, weather, flight controller Kat.

    That is my stance and I ain’t budging.

  46. BooBear
    6:35 pm on October 24th, 2013

    I did not know that about Masquers!!! Why are we assuming that? I am a little distressed about that! I remember when I figured out BSD crossed the bridge at will, but did not know that about Masquers. Macy, what makes you say that?

  47. BooBear
    6:37 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Macy, Mom wants to order a couple of knives and pick them up when she meets up with your Mom and Barb in Dallas. She will let you know either tonight or tomorrow which ones. Would you prefer a paypal payment or cash on delivery?

  48. Tupper and Gilly
    6:49 pm on October 24th, 2013

    If anyone needs a cool Christmas present, check out the monocular from Rick’s web site. Gramp still has very poor vision after his eye surgery, and he loves this gadget. (yes, we gave in to temptation and gave it to him early).

    And by the way, we just went to the blog’s secret email and noticed a failed message. Not sure who posted it but it was recent. It you sent a message to that email, remember, it is plural dishlickers.

  49. Tupper and Gilly
    6:51 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Have we heard anything more today about Nana? Was the info about Masquers on the facebookie thingie?

  50. O'Howlers
    7:06 pm on October 24th, 2013

    The Whittier video was very interesting. We started watching the one about the team in Willow, but we were afraid.
    The Masquers info was posted by Scott in a reply to macy’s mom on facebook. We sort of suspected as much, but didn’t want it to be so. It makes us sad.
    We miss Nana so so much.

  51. c.hobbit
    7:12 pm on October 24th, 2013

    I visited Whittier when I was a child. At that time is was a decommissioned military base and a couple was in charge of all the empty buildings. I remember a bowling alley, base housing, etc. I had understood as an adult that the housing was converted into condos which must be what is now the single main residence but I recall a lot more buildings.

  52. Barb & Maggie
    7:15 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Macy, the large were the ones that were around $10, right? I think there were 2 more larger sizes after that. We are being lazy and asking rather than going back to the website. And we want to know how to pay also. Can we mail a check or give credit card info?

  53. Barb & Maggie
    7:16 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Oh, and we thought Bear had crossed over, but that Masquers was still on this side of the Bridge.

  60. Wose
    8:33 pm on October 24th, 2013

    No, no, no, no! I do not want to believe my dear friend Masquers is a spirit kat.
    He is one kool kat with many talents. sniff

    This latest goat does have a slight pumpkin-y tinge.

    Rio’s friend here: Whoever sent this beautiful Topiary, I want you to know I absolutely love it! What a huge surprise! I have no idea what I have done to deserve such a lovely gift. Thank you so very much whoever you are! Oh, and the card was quite clever too. Ha! Thank you! Thank you!

    Rio’s friend: That is a beautiful topiary. What was so clever about the card?

  69. Pancho & Lefty
    9:06 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Could the card be clever because it is signed by us? No, couldn’t be. We don’t remember anything lately except for a pledge to behave ourselves.

  70. Melanie
    9:08 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Dawson and Staff, last night’s goat was a wagging tale.

    When I was in my Earth Mother stage, i had goats, chickens, dogs and Kats. My first goat was grand. Very much a friend. She could open doors, climb stairs and loved to dance with the chickens on top of my VW Bug. I did find her on the dining room table eating napkins.

    I made the mistake of getting a male. He was actually quite nice. A lap goat. He also smelled to high heaven and was “enthusiastic” when the ladies would come into heat.

    I still can not eat goats cheese because of the slight, but to me-overwhelming, smell.

  71. Tenzing
    9:13 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Melanie: I’ve been known to be enthusiastic with the ladies. I see nothing wrong with that.

  72. c.hobbit
    9:18 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Wooo Hooo….I just got word from my realtor that the closing documents on my North Pole house were signed yesterday and recorded today. It is official: my house is sold and I own just one house now. Can you spell ‘relieved?’

  73. Herd of Hounds
    9:21 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Tenzing, Melanie and Pancho & Lefty, you are cracking the HOH up.

  77. Pancho & Lefty
    9:26 pm on October 24th, 2013

    We here refuse to believe our friend Masquers is a spirit Smoocher. Sniff.

  78. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:28 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Broke!…My question is: Is CHobbit broke now?…snuff!

  79. BooBear

    I wonder if NanaBarb got the ventilator out today.

  80. c.hobbit
    9:35 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Sadie and I checked out a house-run doggie day care/boarding home today and next Tuesday Sadie gives it a try to see if she “fits in.” Lots of happy dogs with amazing owners and employees. Expensive but it will be worth every cent if it works. I can give Sadie a play day once or twice a week and board her if I have an out-of-state trip.

    Plan B: sneak her into Snowhook Kennel. With all those dogs, what is one more? AJ told me on a visit that the dogs are eating 6,000 calories a day which Sadie will love. heh

  81. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:36 pm on October 24th, 2013

    NANA!…I’m not allowed to go out on facebookie. My friend is afraid of all the trouble I would cause out there…sniff!…But I do know I have been thinking about Nana all day and hoping she is strong enough to breath on her own without that damned ole ventilation machine…snuffle!

  82. Pancho & Lefty

    Sadie: We like being you back up plan. We are masters of sneakiness. So is our Lady. She snuck Howard into the kennel. It was about twenty-four hours before the Giant figures out we had a new dog. It was too late. Our Lady and Howard were already in love with each other.

    We are so happy for you, C.H. It is stressful having two houses.

    We see that the RIGHT team is ahead so far in the 6th. Good pitching they say. There are some good looking dudes on the St. Louis team. Hard to tell about the other team with those Amish beards.

    Saying good night. Parenthood is on a few minutes, so will do some flipping.

  89. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:52 pm on October 24th, 2013

    Amish!….That’s the word I’ve been looking for to describe those Beards!…snort!snort!…Some of those beards have really become an entity unto themselves…heh!heh!

    I haven’t read all the blog yet, but I want to apologize for spilling the beans about Masquers. I really thought that I was really the only one who didn’t know. Pretend I said nothing. Rewind, start over, don’t read.

    Regarding payments for those coming to Fort Worth. Once you get here, cash or credit card either is fine. He has a CC gadget on his phone, and we still know how to make change. We are getting excited now that it is less than a month till we get together. The Man is trying to figure out the best place to meet/eat. There are several choices near the Worthington that are reasonably priced.

    Ok I am going back to read the rest of the blog. mea culpa

    And Rick is thrilled than Father Golinka likes his gadget.

    Tenzing, the male Newfs have also been “enthusastic” at certain times. I remember why we put up a very heavy gage wire between two of the areas. Mac ate through the smaller gage wire. Franklin just charged through doors.

    That was when they were three. We then got a very strong kennel.

    They were nothing compared to the male goat. There is a reason for the term “H***y as an Old Goat.”

    I am goin to try to sleep tonight. Last night was a bust.

    When James Taylor got up to sing the Star Spangled Banner, he started off with Oh, beautiful for spacious skies, then smoothly transitioned to the right song. It was so seamless that some people are wondering if he did it on purpose. I am sure we will hear more about it.

    10:27 pm on October 24th, 2013
