“Why not?” says Spence.

“See this snow shovel in my hand?” says Admin. “That’s why not. Where is global warming when you need it, if I can ask that question without bringing universal internet wrath down on my head?”

    Good Morning Spence, Admin & Chet!
    Good Morning Fellow Plunderers & Lurkers too!!

    Oh, Admin. Tsk tsk tsk.

    Good morning, all. How is Rick? So glad he is home home home! Everything is better at home, in our opinion.

    Admin: You knew when you said it you were opening a can of worms. Heh.

    Agree with Howlers about home. It’s the best.

    Spence, we think it is more accurately Global Climate Change, rather than Global Warming.

    Barb opened her big mouth and offered to go in to work for a couple of hours this morning, so now she is stuck with it. After getting an overview yesterday, she realizes that she feels overwhelmed. Everything is totally different than when she left 8 years ago. She is too old to be earning all this new stuff.

    O’Howlers: We quite agree.
    Home is the Best Place to Be.
    It is Good to Know Rick is Home.

    Barb&Magpie: Old Dogs Learning New Tricks and other Challenges.
    There is an old dog here (older than you are) who knows just what you mean.
    She says to tell Barb she will do just fine.

    Thanks BSD. Barb will Plunder on. It is always most confusing in the beginning, so she says. BBL

    Morning all.
    Barb- there are some that are old when they are 25. Then there are some who are hot tickets when they are 100. Take a wild guess on where we put you?
    You will be just fine.

    Admin – we were concerned by the weather reports. We remember when snow was unusual on the Cape. What has happened?

    Sending healing thoughts to Rick and ML from Westchester.

    Thinking of all the Plunderers with love and healing thoughts for those who are under the quilt.

    Mama Luna, Please make sure the Pixie is under the quilt

    For the past several months I have been talking in my sleep. Sometimes I don’t hear myself doing it, but Grizz does, and sometimes I actually CAN here myself.
    Right before I turned off the alarm clock this morning, I heard myself ask the Grizz, ” Do you want to try these seasoned turkey burgers?” Yeep!

    B&M, There are two old dogs here in this house who say you can do it. In a few days, it will be old hat.

    Just want to remind those of you who have HBO, “THE UNIVERSITY OF SING SING” begins it run on HBO on March 31st. I am very proud of the Prof.

    Oh, and HRH, B: The Mets home opener is on March 31st. My mouth has been watering for a nice cherry pie. heh!

    Maggie, we know Mom can’t learn the new stuff any more. Or won’t. We hope Barb gets past overwhelm stage sooner rather than later. And did B&S just call Barb 100? LOL.

    Masquers, That is why it is my favorite movie.
    Egads, no HBO?

    9:03 am on March 26th, 2014

    I’d say Admin is having a bad morning.

    It snowed here yesterday…about one inch. It is, of course, still March so….global warming? I have to read Masquers’ article.

    The juncos are still here (winter birds in Michigan) but the robins, chickadees and seagulls are back.

    Good morning all.

  15. Basil and Sage
    9:17 am on March 26th, 2014

    The New England Weather Channel was just showing the Cape. They are calling it a “snowcane”. Yipe! 80 mile an hour winds. Admin – DUCK!

    We are getting not only spring birds, but the foxes and bobcats are being sighted regularly. The bears will be next.

  16. B. Stover
    9:20 am on March 26th, 2014

    From Masquers’ link: According to scientists, we have to distinguish “weather” and “climate.” Climate is the average weather over a thirty year period. Interesting.

  17. B. Stover
    9:22 am on March 26th, 2014

    Is baseball season coming soon? Sigh!

    One cherry pie coming up Rose.

    9:33 am on March 26th, 2014

    Admin: It’s not global warming. It is climate chaos!

    ML: Much nicer to have Rick at home but you must get some sleep!

    Wose: One week until The U of Sing Sing. I do want to see that documentary.
    I occasionally talk in my sleep and will wake myself up mid sentence. Seasoned turkey burgers! Heh, heh.

    Barb&Maggie:They say learning new things is very good for the brain (of any age). Plunder on!

    10:21 am on March 26th, 2014

    Riö: Last night you mentioned The Good Wife, which is one of our favs here too. We now have some catching up to do. It is fun to watch good shows as a marathon…no waiting a week for the next cliffhanger.

    10:24 am on March 26th, 2014

    Look who’s here, when the sun is up even!

    Long night of moving between couch and recliner. (not me) This includes 5 pillows (one under feet, one behind back, one under each arm, and one that I am not sure WHAT he is using it for), one neck pillow, one cotton blanket and one Mickey Mouse blanket, the water bottle, phone, and NO BELLE, because she hurts him. Not that I am complaining, just taking inventory.

    Hopefully, I did not kill any of the dogs. I gave them his leftover cereal, not even thinking about the raisin part of raisin bran. I think he had picked most of the out. This is what the sleep deprived brain does.

    Today is hopefully going to involve some getting organized. I still haven’t unpacked from Alaska, sigh.

    Wonderful Wednesday to all.

  24. Masquers
    10:45 am on March 26th, 2014

    Macy’s Mom: Don’t worry about the unpacking. It will get done.
    Sending hugs and positive thoughts to you and Rick.

    10:46 am on March 26th, 2014

    Dawson, it is nice to know I am not the only person who talks in their sleep. Grizz always teases me about being so chatty at night. I am not a sparkling conversationalist during the day.

    And speaking of sparkles, I have been missing my VBFF, Belle Starr.

    MacysMaw!…Would it be easier to have one of those Hospital type beds brought in for Rick?…sniff!…I know this happened for my friends paw when he needed it.

  28. Diane C.
    10:52 am on March 26th, 2014

    Macy’s Mom–Welcome home and take your time unpacking (and have a nap if you can manage it). Blessings and good thoughts on all your house.

    B and M–As you’ve already been told repeatedly here, there’s no such thing as “too old”.

    We’re having light rain!!! We need it!! Free water means I can turn off the sprinklers (for today at least). Everyone, be well warm, and safe. (And yeah, where IS Belle Starr?)

  29. O'Howlers
    11:10 am on March 26th, 2014

    “Beyond human endurance”! HAH!!!! We missed that tag. Thanks for pointing it out, Rio. That Admin…always the funniest guy in the room.

  31. Siber-H
    11:14 am on March 26th, 2014

    Stay safe, Spence. The Herbs already answered my question about the history of snow on Cape Cod.

    We are very happy Rick is home.
    Macy’s Mom, Rio has a very good suggestion about a hospital bed.
    Macy, Tell your mom she has to take very good care of herself.

    It isn’t snowing or raining here but we will have blowing sand this afternoon.

  32. Tupper and Gilly
    11:19 am on March 26th, 2014

    Bee – joining you in a universal sigh. Boys and their sports….

    Macy’s Mom – a hospital bed might indeed be just the ticket – there are a number of ways to arrange for that if you think it would help. If there is any way we can help with information, don’t hesitate to send us an SDD

    Add the Storyteller to the sleep talking contingent. Except most of the time he is giggling. Mama says she doesn’t even want to know what he is dreaming about.

    Hey! I talk in my sleep too, according to my mamas. What am I saying? If I had to guess, it would be “Take that, squirrel/mouse/mole/shrew/groundhog”. Heh heh! I do my best running when I am in bed sleeping.

    12:12 pm on March 26th, 2014

    We still root for both the Rockies and the Nationals, although with both in the National League, that could be tough at the end (although that would be a high-class problem to have to deal with). Make mine lemon meringue please.

    I’m going to have to go back to the grocery store to get the ingredients for all of these pies. Sigh…. (The “universal” sigh is for the start of baseball not for pie baking.)

    T&G: Remember my description of baseball: Men in uniform, incomprehensible rules, hours on end when nothing happens…except chewing, spitting and scratching. (Quoting Morse on cricket before the ellipsis; quoting me after the ellipsis.)

  50. Siber-H
    2:00 pm on March 26th, 2014

    lol, Stover, The thing is, I agree with your description.


  51. B. Stover

    Siber-H: What is it about baseball that you love?

  52. Barb & Maggie
    2:23 pm on March 26th, 2014

    Back from the work place. Not as bad as yesterday. Barb thinks an Agent is probably not the best person to train her (they are sales oriented, not so much detail). The district office manager, who Barb worked with before retirement has offered to have Barb come over and do some computer training with her. We think that is a great idea. She is going to go over next week for a few hours and see if that helps.

    Did T & G’s mom really say Barb was 100? We know she didn’t say she was 25. Ummm…time for a nap.

  53. Siber-H
    2:32 pm on March 26th, 2014

    humm Well, Baseball:

    The history, the tradition, the summer season, the art of it, the complicated rules.

    Mom grew up watching baseball games or listening to them on the radio with her grandpa. It was exciting times then in baseball with the New York Yankees…Mantle and Maris…Sandy Koufax with
    the Dodgers.

    B. Stover–Cherry cheese, please (if you’re making it anyway, if not, anything is fine).
    What’s happened to all the Rio photos? Is he only photographed when travelling? Is his stylist on vacation?
    Siber-H–Are you in New Mexico? (I ask about the blowing sand ref.)
    We had rain! I can now do laundry without feeling guilty! And now the Sun is out! Just when you think life can’t get any better, it does!

  55. Siber-H
    2:36 pm on March 26th, 2014

    I am off now to go to the vet to get a 6 month heartworm shot.
    I, who will eat most anything, am refusing to eat those monthly heartworm chewables. They are horrid. I would rather have the shot.

  56. Siber-H
    2:42 pm on March 26th, 2014

    DianeC. Yes, I am in NM. The Continental Divide is about 60 miles west of me and many systems that arrive here from CA lose their moisture over the Divide and we get none here. We may not get any of the your rain, but I know the drought in CA is really bad. I hate to say this, but it is like we are almost used to drought here.

  57. Wose-the small and meek
    2:54 pm on March 26th, 2014

    Rio and Siber-H: I have more hope for your team than the Yankees. Granderson is now a MET, Cano is now a MARINER, and JETER is retiring after the season. Heh!

    Siber-H, I would rather have a shot than eat something nasty.

  58. Riö -The Evil Pug
    2:58 pm on March 26th, 2014

    Cricket!…It’s strange how my friend loves Cricket and Baseball…heh!heh!…She used to know all the rules and even kept score for a real Cricket game once when she was in England…snorkel!…Since then she has forgotten almost all of the rules. But she says she will never forget how much fun she had sitting at 6+ hour long games….chorkel!

  59. B. Stover
    3:11 pm on March 26th, 2014

    Thank you Siber-H. I understand. I especially like your term, “the art of it.” There is an art about it, and skill of course. Pondering.

    Diane: Is that cherry cheesecake? I make excellent cheesecake–very thick and creamy. I’ll add cherry sauce. It’s been a while since I made it.

  60. Tupper and Gilly
    3:12 pm on March 26th, 2014

    Rio – your friend is indeed amused by the strangest things…including Pugs. tee hee

    Barb – oh no – now we are in trouble with Barb. Noooooo, we didn’t mean you were 100, oh jeeze, Mama is gonna kill us….no, no, no – Barb, honest to goodness, Mama just meant that you are a hot “shot”, and know stuff that the kids these days think is proprietary knowledge. So there!

  61. B. Stover

    3:49 pm on March 26th, 2014

    Baseball, we love it. I always want my Cubbies and Texas Rangers on top. Mom is a dyed in the wool California girl. She goes back to her childhood with the Angels and enjoys the Padres but she wont admit it.
    She had what she calls her 60000 mile girlie tune up today. Need to wait for test results but her doc said it looked good. I am really relieved.

  65. Barb & Maggie
    3:58 pm on March 26th, 2014

    T & G, Tell your mom we were just kidding her. Although now that I think about it, she might be closer to 100 than to 25!

    We missed the Herd’s mom this morning and didn’t quite know what kind of a day to have…that is until Macy’s Mom reminded us to have a Wonderful Wednesday.
    We can see there will be one more guy on this here blog ordering pie. Heh.

    B., when my ex and I would go to Bermuda to play golf, around 4 o’clock everything stopped and we came in and had tea before finishing the golf game.

  71. B. Stover
    4:25 pm on March 26th, 2014

    Dirty Daddy Dawg: Whenever baseball is discussed I make whatever pie is requested by the guilty party…I mean by the person discussing baseball.

    Rio: LOL! Leave it to the Brits.

  72. O'Howlers
    4:25 pm on March 26th, 2014

    Mom works with people who like to play cricket. Sometimes she goes and watches them, because it gets her out of the office. She does not understand that game at all, and these people do not drink tea during the game.

    Siber did a nice job explaining why he likes baseball, and we think those reasons are true for all (or at least most) baseball fans. It is the very slowness of the game, on warm summer nights, that makes it exciting. Mom thinks baseball lends itself to radio more than t.v. There is not much more exciting than listening to a great announcer (Harry Kalas was her favorite) report on what is happening, while you sit outdoors with a beer. It is much better when you listen and drink that beer with your dad right there with you. Sniff

  73. B. Stover

    Don’t know where the DDD got the idea that he had to blab about mom, but his baseball comments were true.
    Glad to be reading all y’alls comments this day. Mom is a little tuckered out but will try to stay awake a bit yet.

    Here is a picture Barb took last night of me and The Brat. I look bigger, but I was just closer to the camera. Sammy is actually bigger and a little naughty at times. This morning Barb had to chase him all over the backyard because he wouldn’t come in when it was time to go to work. Then he likes to jump and bite at her arms, and slime all over her clothes. Believe me, it is not like LouLou jumping on you!

    Maggie, we don’t get the egg joke either.

    Mom has always wanted to go to Bermuda. It is the only southern-type island she has ever wanted to see. It seems so “cultured” somehow. But we told her it is very expensive.

  84. O'Howlers

    Barb, anyone who can explain tin futures like you can will have no problem with this much simpler job. You will catch on to it very quickly I know.

    B. Stover–Cheesecake form is fine, also like any cream pie but with cherry filling (like banana cream, only cherry). (Uh-oh–now I’m REALLY thinking about desserts…
    SiberH–And speaking of deserts (with one “S”) I’m sorry we’re not sharing what H2O we get with you guys. Even with a bigger population (and far less sense about what kind of landscaping to do) I wish we were sharing.

    Job!…The “new” gal at the super-duper busy-place where my friend goes each day did not work for 10 years….snort!…Then the hot-shot misread her resume and did not notice the 10 year gap. Hired her on the spot…grunt!…We have all been paying for it ever since. He had to teach her how to use email for pete’s sake. She started 3 weeks after my friend started down there and she is still in training….gah!…Counting all my paws and toes its been 6 months now…wheeze!

    B. Stover, rio and anyone else–There are some Pakistani guys who play a sort of reduced-form cricket on my local high school’s blacktop area (which isn’t big enough) in spring. Haven’t seen them yet,but I’ll let you know if you feel like coming to the Big (drought-ridden) Orange…
    I’ve never seen them drinking tea, but I usually don’t stick around that long.

    I am guessing that the tag about chickens unionizing on the photo of empty egg shelves might refer to a work stoppage by chickens to get better working conditions (and they should!) 🙂

    Glad HOH checked in.
    T&G: you are mean to leave us guessing.

    Well Barb can at least send email and even attach docs or photos.

    When Barb left her job much more was done by paper rather than computer. 8 years is a long time when it comes to computer technology.

    Howlers, You are right, Bermuda was very beautiful and cultured compared to some of the other islands, and also expensive. When Barb and Kelly went in 92, most of their expenses were paid by the company. However they had to buy a few meals and all drinks. At that time beer was about $7. and mixed drinks around $10.
    The scariest part was when they rented a scooter and drove around sightseeing. Not only do you have to drive on the other side or the road, but they have those roundabout things which were awful. Barb let Kelly drive, and she rode on the back, with her eyes closed at times.

    B&M, sounds like an adventure and a half. Oh, oh, mom’s eyelids are reaching for each other.
    Pawsitive thoughts to all under the quilt or traveling or just being. Nighty night.

    OMDAWG!….MollysMaw, my friend is still over there in her chair laughing her head off after Harry Connick Jr ran onstage and stole Ryan’s shoe….chorkel!heh!heh!….That guy is a riot and a half…heh!heh!

    Sometimes riding with your eyes closed is the only way to go. Snicker.

    I am sure that egg joke is to subtle for me.

    Pawayers continuing for Rick and Macy’s Ma.

    I like baseball for the sense of timelessness I feel when I am watching a game. There is so much history in the game. I don’t get that feeling with any other sport.

    Barb, I understand. In Bermuda you have to take a motorcycle. Only the residents are allowed to drive cars. Next problem is you’re driving on the left side of the road and when you come to one of the dreaded roundabouts you enter on the left and automatically exit on the right. Big trouble.

    Baseball!….My friend would say Baseball is a beautifully complicated American Art Form that only a very few can master, but all can play…sniff!…I like the scratching, spitting, chewing and sliding in the dirt parts…heh!heh!

    We did not go to bed after all. We are watching the Iditarod documentaries on Sportsman Channel. It is good, but it is about the 2013 race, at least so far.

    Oh, and AJ is on, laughing about seeing Dazell Gorge in the daylight. Cool

    Barb, Bermuda on a motor scooter…that sounds like lots of fun, except for being on the wrong side of the road, and then going thru those dreaded roundabouts.

    I think C Hobbit might be right about the chickens going on strike for better conditions. Went right over my head.

    Now must say good night all.

    We had to up our package on DirectTV for one month to get that channel.

    Ooops – Sorry to leave you in suspense Siber. MAma and the Storyteller had a speaking gig tonight, and she left without turning the floor height computer on for us.

    So anyway, she is home now, and for your next hint about who is coming to town:
    They might be bringing bacon. Again.

    Uh oh – they just had a weather story from Cape Cod – massive power outages, and up to 10 inches of snow.
    They also said there was no sense in shoveling since the wind was still blowing so hard, it would blow the snow right back onto the path you shoveled.

    The egg joke was over no one’s head. It was a misfire in my synapses trying to think of something witty. It is actually just a vending machine for eggs. meh.

    We are now the proud owners of a walker (need tennis balls to be complete) and a hospital type adjustable table. Tomorrow I inquire about a bed. His belly is so swollen that he can’t lie on his side comfortably, and I can have him sleeping on the couch all day and all night.

    It is amazing how much easier it is to get up at 4a.m. when you go to bed before 1. He is all snuggled down in his ever growing pile of pillows. It can’t grow any more without him taking mine. Grrrrrr back off, mine, mine, mine, oK everybody back to sleep now. Wait, what? You didn’t all wake up to read this breaking news? Fine then. Carry on.

  117. O'Howlers

    One more day and MPM will be flying away to parts now known by many of youse Plunderers.
    Wonder if Spence and Admin are snowed in this am?
    Speaking of wonder, Mom is off to get fluffed and none too soon.
    She’s starting to look like a sheep-dog.
