    First!…heh!snort!heh!…I’m first again!… Where in the world is Spencer going now? Is he combining a vacation with the conference or vice versa?….sniff!

    Riö, you are something! It’s 2:46 in the morning and I am up. Not awake. But up. You see I heard a chirping. Not a sweet bird or Chippie, the chipmunk, but of a smoke and CO2 detector. I thought about going to bed. I knew it meant that the batteries were low. I realized though if I didn’t get it, Zoe would try to in the morning. It’s very high and you have to stand on the 3rd step and reach back over to reach it. So I took it down. Got the batteries out. Put it down and heard chirping.

    There is no other detector in that part of the house. I have wandered around for 15 minutes trying to locate here that snigglefritz noise was located. Chirp, chirp, chirp.
    I didn’t have my glasses on because I KNEW where it was, being blind as a bat . . . a bat! I echo located it! It was one from the basement! It has been on the kitchen counted for two weeks after I changed the battery in that one. Turns out it’s plumb broke. Got the batteries out of it again. Sure hope I’m going to back to sleep.

    The Pack appreciates me taking the batteries out. Seems to chirp on a wavelength they hate. they are back asleep. I think the only one still awake would be LizF.

    Hi LizF!

    Good morning, Melanie! Are you still up? Those smoke alarms are lifesavers, but sometimes they’re downright irritating! When Mom and Dad used to go to “their” cabin at the beach — the one where they didn’t take me! — they used to take steaks for supper on Dad’s birthday. They would broil them, but just around the corner from the oven was the smoke alarm, and it would go off every year! So they’d end up with the cabin door open trying to shoo all the smoke out and hoping the park rangers wouldn’t rush in with their fire extinguishers!!!

    Good Sunday, All! We had eggs with our kibble as we do every Sunday.

    Our smoke detectors are all wired together since our house was renovated a few years ago. Something about Code. So when one has a problem, like a battery gone bad, they all go off. It is impossible for Pop to tell which one is causing it, and in the meantime, we are frantic because that noise really hurts our ears.

    Wonder where Spence is…hope he didn’t head in the direction of that fire.

    We like Dawson’s idea of a non-wedding present to Snowhook!

    Good Morning Spence and All.

    Kirby! Although Rio claims to be first, you are first Today!
    Hey, didn’t you say the other day the Gamecocks are in the Finals?

    Melanie: We here know of your trials with the chirping smoke detector. Annoyance to the nth degree. And Dog, Why do they always fail at the most inconvenient times?

    Speaking of Liz…You, Dear Liz, have been MIA for far too long. It’s winter Down Under. Do drop in at Chet’s for a How Do.

    BBL. Off to catch up on yesterday’s posts……

    8:56 am on June 24th, 2012

    Morning Kirby T. and OleyHowlers and all!
    I managed to get back to sleep though Patsy had decided to use the lower two thirds of the bed while I was gone . . . OleyHowlers I am SOOOOO glad all of our detectors are NOT hooked together!
    Kirby T. That is funny about your dad’s steaks. What they needed was you there. You could have helped in someway.

    Water day today. The hot weather has now gone. Got down to 47 this morning. When it warms up I’ll be taking some dogs to the river and some dogs in the pool.

    Hmm. Early to bed..Late to rise..that can’t be right.
    Still no sun. We may have to wait until next weekend when Riö finally shares a tiny bit of the abundance he is presently enjoying.

    Hi up top to Jai Ram, Spence’s pal from Blogpaws.
    Spence, wherever you are enjoy the day.
    All the rest of youse Plunderers too.

    Now going to watch that movie from Netflix that I fell asleep watching last night.

  8. B.Stover
    9:41 am on June 24th, 2012

    Wonder when Spence is getting back.

    Good morning all.

  9. B.Stover

    By the way, the recipe for the chocolate cream pie is in the Dishlicker cookbook.

    Thank you B. Yum!

    Spence mentioned that he was do a little side trip after the conference. I’m still twirling about meeting SQPA.

  12. BearSpiritDog
    10:06 am on June 24th, 2012

    SnowBella: How is the weather in Atlanta? How long does your conference last? Are you completely turned around Time-wise, or what?

  13. Rose
    10:12 am on June 24th, 2012

    Greetings All!

    Melanie, I feel your pain! I too have difficulty sleeping, and I take prescription medicine, and melatonin! Hopefully, you will sleep well soon, and all chirping has stopped!

    Hey, I like the idea of sending donations to Snowhook instead of to Dawson’s wedding, non- wedding.

    Rio, stay cool! Do you have a pug pool to cool off in?

    Rebecca: I’m still tingly about your visit with Spence. You are definitely a super- star now. Can I have your autograph? : )

  14. Rose
    10:15 am on June 24th, 2012

    Rebecca: Hmmmm, pondering here. Could Spence’s side trip involve a visit to a certain musher’s wife’s talk in Florence?…

  15. Rose
    10:17 am on June 24th, 2012

    Rio and Pepper up top! What a nice picture of them!
    Rio, have you visited Pepper lately?

  16. Siber-H
    10:23 am on June 24th, 2012

    Good Morning All!

    Rose, As Wookie mentioned, mom read Scent of the Missing and liked it a lot.

    I like Dawson’s suggestion that we send donations to Snowhook instead of wedding gifts to her.

  17. Tupper and Gilly
    10:24 am on June 24th, 2012

    Morning all.
    Oh the stories we could tell about smoke detectors. Especially with all the spiders we have around here. Spiders like the “clubhouse” feel of the inside casing of the detectors. Detectors do NOT like having spiders inside.

    According to Spence’s online calendar of appearances, he will be back home for an event next Sunday. Hope he is having a nice birthday vacation till then.

    10:25 am on June 24th, 2012

    We’re getting another wire walker. This one will be on the Canadian side of the Falls going between the CNN tower and a tall hotel – 50 stories up with no net or harness. This guy is going to walk every day throughout the summer. If he goes splat, I hope there will be no people or cars below.

  19. Siber-H
    10:44 am on June 24th, 2012

    Princess Sam, You have about as much sympathy as I do for such stupidity.

  20. BearSpiritDog
    10:54 am on June 24th, 2012

    Wait! Have I missed something? Gifts to Snowhook for Dawson’s Non-Wedding? Going back to yesterday to check on this…..

  21. Alice M. Johnson
    11:12 am on June 24th, 2012

    Well the darn raccoon CAN get up on the new birdfeeder pole. Drat it all.

  22. Siber-H
    11:16 am on June 24th, 2012

    Alice, Grease the pole.

  23. Alice M. Johnson
    11:19 am on June 24th, 2012

    Staff got an email from you this morning saying you were attaching a pic of you that you use as an avatar.


    Didn’t I already do that? (Also no pic was attached)

    Now Staff is confused.

  24. Alice M. Johnson
    11:21 am on June 24th, 2012

    Mr Husky,
    Yes, She will spray it with Olive Oil Pam tonight and we shall see. Heh heh heh

  25. Melanie
    11:22 am on June 24th, 2012

    Balancing the pool,
    Balancing the pool,
    Here we go rejoicing
    Adding stuff to the pool!

    Okay, Patsy had a good time in the river. Other dogs got to use the pool while I ate breakfast. Rosalyn, she’s feeling great, and Katie are at the groomers.

    We have added calcium and some other natural thingy to get the pool in balance. The Pack must not go in for 2 hours.

    Princess Sam, How many people do you think will go see the guy just to see if he falls?

    Dear Royals, you are welcome to come up and sniff for spiders. I’m not doing that.

    Bad news. My computer does not make DVD’s any more. Our guru thought it was one thing but it isn’t. I am getting one DVD made for Rebecca (expensive), my guru is doing this. She will have it for Friday’s talk. PLUS, any other talks she just might get booked for!!!!!

  26. Melanie
    11:30 am on June 24th, 2012

    Snort! as a certain pug would say. Went on OTAS’s Facebook and found that he had written this . .

    Whenever I see someone taking themselves too seriously I have the sudden urge to bring them back down. I’m like some kind of superhero lol . . . Captain Humility or something

    Love this guy!

  27. BearSpiritDog
    11:30 am on June 24th, 2012

    Alice: Those darn raccoons are crafty critters. The fuzzbutts also like to mess with the bird’s food. Best to keep ladders and such away from the bird feeders.

    Finally found the reference to Donations in lieu of Non-Wedding Gifts. Apparently Someone didn’t read last night’s posts very carefully.

  28. Barb & Maggie
    11:45 am on June 24th, 2012

    Masquers, What is the movie that you are watching from Netflix? Larry Crowne was so-so. We love Tom Hanks, but this movie was not one of our favorites.

    Melanie, Can you repost GLAD’s link for us? Can’t remember which day you had it on here.

    Didn’t get the rain we so desparately needed. No chances now for almost a week. Damn!

    We had loud music outside last night and this morning. It was so annoying that we got in the car and drove down to where the music was coming from, just to see what was going on. They were having a party 3/4 mile away, with people parked all over the field, and tents everywhere. Music was almost as loud on our patio as it was at their place! Thank Dog it has stopped.

  29. Barb & Maggie
    11:51 am on June 24th, 2012

    Melanie, Would it be possible to email the link to me, so I can email it to someone? Also, on her animal pictures that she is doing at the special price, can you please explain to me in more detail how they are done.

  30. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    11:51 am on June 24th, 2012

    I have a story about smoke detectors. Ours went off about a year ago. It was really loud and it hurt our ears. Mom and dad couldn’t figure out how to turn it off, so finally they turned off the power to the house and the racket didn’t stop.


    It was awful. They finally figured out the noise was coming from a battery operated mat that they used to keep us (harumph!) off the couch. They felt really dumb.

  31. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    11:56 am on June 24th, 2012

    We have a zillion ants stealing sugar water from the hummers. Any suggestions?

  32. Barb & Maggie
    11:58 am on June 24th, 2012

    Wolfie, The ants are the reason we stopped putting out grape jelly and oranges for the Baltimore Orioles. All we attracted was ants!

  33. BearSpiritDog
    12:00 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Wolfie: Funny story!
    Melanie: Good one by OTAS – Captain Humility. lol
    Barb & Alice: M will get back to you after the movie (and maybe a nap)

  34. Riö –The Evil Pug
    12:02 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Pasta!…I was going to type something but now we have to rush upstairs and make some pasta salad…grunt!gurgle!….Today is not turning out to be the leisurely day I had hoped for…grumble!

  35. Melanie
    12:27 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Wölfie, That was funny. And so something that would happen here.

    Barb&MagPie, Not sure what link I put up. Facebook? Her website? Need more info.

    Took both Zoe and I to do the math for the pool additions this morning. We got them done though.

  36. Barb & Maggie
    12:31 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Melanie, I think it was her website, not FB. Also if we had the spelling of her last name we could probably get there by googling.

    BSD’s suggestion of a nap sounds good. Lunch first.

  37. Gus & BooBear
    12:39 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Barb, Maggie and Melanie, the other day Andrea posted on the blog herself and mentioned a special she was doing on pastels. We are pretty sure it was last week sometime.


  38. Tupper and Gilly
    12:44 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Barb – the spelling of Andrea’s last name is almost as mysterious as the staircases at Hogwarts School of Magic. Every time we think we have it down pat – it changes. Or so it seems.

  39. Barb & Maggie
    12:49 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Melanie, We just found her mysterious last name from an old google search that we did. That might be enough.

  40. Riö –The Evil Pug
    12:50 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Tired!…Someone here has checked the garden, got groceries, made pasta salad and is doing laundry…sniff!…Good thing it is only a little before 11:00am….heh!…Plenty of time to do all the other stuff she actually enjoys…wuffle!

  41. Riö –The Evil Pug
    12:56 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Golinka!…How long is Rebecca’s One-Women Play going to be this coming Friday night….snort!snort!….Did Melanie ever say if she was going to video-tape it for the ones who can’t make it to the Big Big and getting Bigger Event?…wheeze!

  42. Tupper and Gilly
    1:08 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Rio – we kind of figure about an hour for Rebecca to spin her magic, followed by a playing of the Fabulous DVD that Mekanie did, followed by questions and answers and prying as much money as possible out of people’s pockets.
    Not sure about the video taping part if it. We are still working on that side of things.

  43. OleyHowlers
    1:12 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Pop had to go back to work. Next time he is home, we are giving Kat the assignment of eating his pager. Heh heh.
    Fortunately, we got to accompany them on a trail ride before the pager went off. Unfortunately breakfast was not yet made when that wrotten pager went off. Mom just had bacon, eggs, French bread and peach jam. Pop will have to eat at his cafeteria.

  44. Gus & BooBear
    1:49 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Maggie, go back to June 19th. Andrea posted herself then and had the link.

  45. Gus & BooBear
    1:53 pm on June 24th, 2012

    AND there is an awesome painting of Alice M Johnson on the home page of the link!

  46. Masquers
    1:59 pm on June 24th, 2012

    We are back from watching the DVD. Mom says War Horse is an excellent movie. If she liked it so much, why is she crying?

  47. Masquers
    2:44 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Alice: Tell Staff the SDD from this morning was a belated thank you for making my badge. It was supposed to have been an attachment, in which case it would have made sense.

    Barb&Magpie: We are in agreement. In spite of starring Tom Hanks, whom we love, Larry Crowne wasn’t that great. Part of the problem being his pairing with Ms Roberts. In our opinion.

  48. Melanie
    2:53 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Glad you found GLAD, snicker.

    Rosalyn and Katie are back with their summer haircuts. Their coats are even shorter than Princess Sam’s!

    OTAS has sent to Flip back to me. Will not be able to videotape the whole thing, but will get as much as possible.

  49. Barb & Maggie
    3:37 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Masquers, We agree with your assessment. Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks didn’t have much chemistry. And wasn’t that Tom Hank’s wife that played the part of the blonde banker? They always have Roberts do that trademark laught in the movies, of which we here are not overly fond.

    G & B, Thanks for the help. We will now be able to find it.

  50. Barb & Maggie
    3:43 pm on June 24th, 2012

    We are currenly reading a new book by Jodi Picoult, Lone Wolf. We are not big fans of all her books, but this one has a lot of interesting info about wolves intertwined in the storyline. Good so far.

  51. Riö –The Evil Pug
    3:53 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Video!..Well, surely Stinky Mama knows a professional who will lend their talents to video-taping the whole thing…snort!…Surely she does!…snuffle!

  52. BearSpiritDog
    3:57 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: Lone Wolf. Darn. Because it was about wolves is the reason we wanted to read it in first place, but had to send it back to the library because we were going out of town. One or two Plunderers have mentioned reading it. Rose, (I think) liked it, someone else not so much. We will put it back on the list.

    Melanie: We’ve seen the River Bears with their summer hairdos. They look very “cool”.
    That is disappointing about the DVD. Fooey.
    That reminds me about a cute bedtime story for the very young:

  54. Rose
    4:57 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Bear: I am a big fan of Jodi Picoult’s, but I have not read it yet. Recommender remains a mystery!

  55. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:08 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Fairy!..My friend and I are watching a Clint Eastwood movie and she is trying to make a paper-fairy….heh!…She’s having a helluva time with that…snort!

  56. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:38 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Supper!…She just put her kick-ass-hot-green-chili meatloaf in the outside oven….sniff!sniff!…That stuff will turn your fur black from the heat…grunt!…Its 100 degrees outside so this should taste real good…chuffle!

  57. Siber-H
    5:42 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Rio? What time is supper served?

  58. Alice M. Johnson
    5:52 pm on June 24th, 2012

    We still have meatballs left.

    Staff has been trying to avoid packing, but woke up from her nap and started assembling clothes. YAWN. Abbie and I will stay and guard the house till Mr.Staff returns.

  59. BearSpiritDog
    6:08 pm on June 24th, 2012

    O.Howlers: Thank you for the warning. We knew to have the box of tissues at paw. Sob.
    Has your mom decided yet who will be the Lucky Dog getting to ride Shotgun?

    Rose: Hmm…if not you, then who?

  60. Rose
    6:10 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Bear: A job for Chet and Bernie? Your wise and wonderful face is up top!

  61. Rose
    6:20 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Rio: Watching the news here, and they were talking about more fires in Colorado. Worried about youse guys. Hope you all are okay.

  62. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:26 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Fires!…The fires are far enough away to not be threats to our safefty…sniff!sniff!…Although, breathing the smoke can’t be good for anyone…gasp!….Its been a very hot weekend and hard on the firefighters….wuffle!

  63. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:27 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Rose!…Do you like Fairies?…heh!heh!

  64. OleyHowlers
    6:38 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Has anyone heard from Tyb? We were hoping maybe he would come to the Big Event.

  65. BearSpiritDog
    6:43 pm on June 24th, 2012

    O.Howlers: The last time TYB was on this here blog was to post the June calendar for us. It would be great if TYB’s dad and MollyPop’s Mom could go together to the Big Event. They are both in NY.

  66. Melanie
    6:46 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Zoë got a little bit of a break today. She sat outside reading while the Pack played in the pool.

    I gardened. Today was better energy wise. Jesse was able to mow the lawn. Turns out he has a ruptured disk. Yuck!

    I ran a thumb drive over to the Mac Doc’s house. He and his wife were gardening. He’s going to burn the DVD probably tomorrow.

    Getting the west wing safe for Dan Monday and Tuesday. Then a good cleaning on Wednesday.

    Hoping to rest a some point so I have the energy for FRIDAY!

  67. OleyHowlers
    6:53 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Bear, that is what were thinking. It would be great company for Mollys Mom if Tyb’s Dad could share the drive. As for us, we are all scheduled for a wonderfluffung (actually a defurminating) this week. Mom won’t decide who is going until after that? Remember how she thinks each of us is the one she loves best? Well, she finds it difficult to part with any one of us. Humans…they all think too much.

  68. Masquers
    7:05 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Purrs from the Pacific NW. Woke up from my katnap to SUNSHINE. Someone send some rays our way. It’s a Sunday after all.

  69. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:17 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Paging!…I love how you can be on Page 1 and see my face first and then got to page 2 and see my face first….heh!…I am going to try and make it to the top of all 3 pages if we get there that is…woooooo!

    Game!….On! Still hot as hell in Texas and hot as hell here too…sniff!…Only we do not have any humidity…wuffle!

  70. Barb & Maggie
    7:17 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Masquers, Did you ever tell us what movie you were watching?

    Barb is preparing some baked fish ahd various garden goodies tonight. Back later.

  71. Rose
    7:19 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Rio: Why do you ask? Could this mean a new quilling project?

  72. Mollypop's Mom
    7:29 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Tyb and his Dad won’t be coming to the Big Event with me, but Tyb said he wants me to say hello to everyone from him.

    The store Tyb works at here in Ellicottville has been under construction so he is staying put for now in Bradford, Pa. where he lives. I miss seeing them.

  73. Masquers
    7:31 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Melanie: So much to do! Glad to hear Zoë got a break. Now it’s your turn.
    Maggie: It was War Horse. Mom loved it. She recommends it to anyone who loves horses as much as she does. If Barb decides to watch it tell her to have a box of kleenix nearby. She can use the same one from the last video the Howlers put up.

  74. Masquers
    7:36 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Molly’s Mom: Sorry that isn’t going to work out for you. It would have been the purrfect solution.
    Hi to Tyb! We miss you.

  75. Rose
    7:50 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Molly’sMom: Is Sammy really going to Rebecca’s stage debut with you?

    Hello, Masquers!

    Hi, Tyb!

  76. Snowhook Bella
    8:04 pm on June 24th, 2012

    What a day! I feel like I’m wilting. I got lost—very lost—found my way, sweated, attended the conference, sweated and just made it back to the hotel. I’m beat.

  77. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:06 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Sammie!…She better be going to the Big Big Event because I have emptied out my little knapsack for her…grunt!…That was no easy task, what do I do with all this stuff while my knapsack is in MA?…grumble!

  78. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:10 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Rebecca!…I wondered if the conference had started already…grunt!…My friend remembers having to give up her weekends for software conferences – that really pissed her off at the time, although not nearly as much as giving up her vacation for some other poncey software…grumble!sneeze!

    Atlanta!…So how is the conference and most importantly, how is your hotel room??…wuffle!

  79. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:13 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Foggy!….Why is it so foggy in Arlington?…grunt!…I can hardly see the players through the fog …sniff!…Texas is ahead by the way. I have woken up from my good dream…heh!

    Rose!…I mentioned earlier that she was trying to make a little paper Fairy….sniff!… At first it was not very promising, but now it is starting to look like an actual Fairy, if this is what Fairies do actually look like…gruffle! …I’ve never seen a fairy with my own eyes so I couldn’t tell you if this project is for real or not…huffle!

    Mommy says I have give the little knapsack back to Rio. I told her Molly’s Mom said if someone wanted to ride from Buffalo to hop in. Mommy said I’m not going anywhere so again you all see how mean she is.

    Our iPaw is just about out of juice but we can’t remember if we have told youse this. Kat started getting a dirt ring around her neck a couple of weeks ago. Mom kept trying to rub the dirt off. Then she got more dirt down her back. Mom said “Kat, why aren’t you cleaning yourself like good huskies do?” Now it turns out she is molting. As her puppy fur is coming out, the “dirt” underneath is the deepest, darkest red. She is going to be a stunner! (once she is done molting that is).

    Riö: Let’s hope it’s only fog. Hear tell there’s a hurricane brewing in the Gulf.
    Your friend’s new project sounds very kool. Can we look forward to a glimpse perhaps?
    Hi, Rose! Did you say you and the Prof will be in Philly on the 4th? Your forecast will be ready. Is this a 4 day weekend for you?
    Howlers: Molting?
    Siber: Do you know anything about this?

    Awwww – Sammie – we’re sorry your family is so terribly cruel to you. You need to do what we did and have the SPCA on speed dial. Maybe Rio can program it into his little go-phone.

    Rio – Mama says she does’t know any video taping type people. She isn’t really much of a networker – she’s not really even all that sociable. Even when she goes up to the clay place – she tends to sit by herself and just work. Most of the other folks up there sit and chat and waste class time that they are paying for.
    If it wasn’t for Melanie and the blog, she wouldn’t talk to anyone except family for days and weeks on end.

    Masquers, Yes, The Howlers are telling it like it is.
    BTW Kat can’t be a flower girl if is she is molting.

    Rio: My bosses say that I consider any hotel that has hot water on demand a five star hotel. You live without a reliable water source for several months and that is all anyone knows about you…sheesh.

    Rebecca: Whenever Nana visits #2 son on the East Coast she is up until all hours. Then the next morning finds it difficult to wake up at a normal hour. Thursday is coming up fast. Hope your internal clock adjusts by then.
    We’ll bet you are enjoying that wonderful hotel air conditioning. If only the Giant were with you – it would be perfect.

    Time!….It’s all relevant…snort!…Pug Standard Time…snort!heh!snort!

    Rio, we take it that those of you in the know already have auction items lined up? Really special donations that were held back from the spring boutique? Mom made several donations to the boutique, but doesn’t really have anything special enough for an auction item.

  104. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:17 pm on June 24th, 2012

    Dammit!…How many damned ways can the Rockies screw theirselves out of Wins?…grump!….Now we have to go for a Hot Walk to Cool Down…grumbe!sniff!

    Well dang! First Mom and Dad went off and left me home alone all day — except for those stinkin’ kats! — then the Gamecocks went and lost the first game of the finals agains Arizona, 5-1. Rats, rats and double rats!!!
