No Post Today

“Why not?” Admin says.

“Pressures of work, plus a short day due to circumstances.”

“Maybe I could just post some of my political opinions.”

“Rain check.”

Note: Still working on a fix for the Friends gallery. No uploading possible at this time.

    No you do not, Zeus!

    Good morning everyone! It is a beee-autiful Fall morning here. Unfortunately, we were kept awake all night while Pop was on a call (or several calls because the phone kept ringing) for work. Somewhere in the wee hours, he had to dress and go in to work. We are all zonked.

    Good morning, OH and everyone! We missed the moon and the lunar eclipse but boy did we have a light extravaganza last night. We made sure to keep the peeps safe anr soundly tucked into bed. Coudds broke about 10 minutes ago so currently blue and sunny. More boomers expected tonight and tomorrow :(
    Been having issues posting and our wifi keeps blinking off :( GAH!
    Have a wonderfully, willful Wednesday.

    Congratulations to Wolfie on last night’s game. We will definitely root for the Giants over the Cardinals, but our heart now belongs to Baltimore for the World Series.

    And in honor of the lunar eclipse, a little serenade, compliments of Cat Stevens:

    Oh, I’m bein’ followed by a moonshadow, moon shadow, moonshadow—
    Leapin and hoppin’ on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow—

    And if I ever lose my hands, lose my plough, lose my land,
    Oh if I ever lose my hands, Oh if I won’t have to work no more.

    And if I ever lose my eyes, if my colours all run dry,
    Yes if I ever lose my eyes, Oh if I won’t have to cry no more.

    [Chorus]

    And if I ever lose my legs, I won’t moan, and I won’t beg,
    Yes if I ever lose my legs, Oh if I won’t have to walk no more.

    And if I ever lose my mouth, all my teeth, north and south,
    Yes if I ever lose my mouth, Oh if I won’t have to talk…

    Did it take long to find me? I asked the faithful light.
    Did it take long to find me? And are you gonna stay the night?

    [Chorus]
    Moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow.

    Our mama, Annabelle crossed the Bridge early this morning. The Giant and our Lady were with her. They thanked her, told her she is loved, and stayed with her until her last breath. Annabelle is credited with several things in the kennel: teaching most of our lead dogs everything they know, stealing most things that can’t be found, and last but not least, begatting us.

    She is loved. She is missed.

    Yawn! A way past my bedtime night last night, but it was fun! (See yesterday’s blog)

    A beautiful day here in Westchester! I might have to take a walk.

    Thank you W&T Dad, for that old Cat Stevens song. I think I read that he is doing a come back tour after an absence of about 25 years. I saw him once in concert back in the day, before he changed his name and disappeared.

    Barb — We had seen him too, back in the day. Great performer! But probably the best live performer we ever saw (multiple times too) was Harry Chapin. He could really put on a terrific live concert. And James Taylor and Carole King, who we saw a couple of years ago, put on a pretty terrific concert too.

    The booty fund has received a 25 dollar donation in Annabelle’s honor. That means 50.00 more for the fund as it was matched by an additional 25. I am on the wrong computer so I can’t give you details but they will come before the end of the day. And I know there are still matching funds available.

    Hint hint hint.

    I am curious about “circumstances” and Admin’s political opinions, however, after remembering what it did to the cat, I will stifle my curiosity.

    So sad to say so long to Annabelle, one of the sweetest and also no nonsense doggies of the Snowhook Kennels. She was a great leader and teacher and she took care of our favorite musher on the Iditarod Trail. She was my official escort when I visited Snowhook Kennels and will always have a place in my heart.

    I remember singing Cat Stevens, “Miles from Nowhere” at the top of my lungs (think Basil and Sage) 20 years ago when I was driving from Alaska home to Montana. I truly was miles from anywhere.

    I have received some significant donations to checkpoints while I’ve been on the road. There will be an update after I get home Thursday afternoon. I will reply to any SDD’s that have been sent to the snowhookcheckpoints account at that time. Sorry for the delay.

    Go Giants!

    Speaking of Chet, Mom wanted us to tell youse about a “Chet Twin” she saw while biking with Pop. He was in a car, with. 3 humans. One of the humans was driving, and the other two were in the backseat. The deserving Member of the Nation Within was riding shotgun. Take that, Susie!

    Update: re sealing the crawlspace….so no one else arrived to help the guy with the broken hand in a cast and he just left for the day to go to the dentist (3:30 AK time). So he started to work foaming all the electrical outlets and putting in gaskets. Supposedly a crew of 6 will arrive tomorrow to do everything that originally was booked as a 2-day job: the crawlspace and the attic. He only got the electrical outlets downstairs done before leaving which leaves the main living space upstairs to do. (He was supposed to get it all done today). Of course, I pulled everything out from the walls to give him access so I can’t put back any of the upstairs furniture back. I can’t believe that I am paying big bucks for this.

    Also: IT SNOWED FOR AN HOUR IN ANCHORAGE!

  65. Herd of Hounds
    7:54 pm on October 8th, 2014

    Snow? Perhaps this is good considering this a southern route year. It will also make for good training. Annabelle, you keep an eye on our kennel and all y’all Snowhook dogs over the bridge, help them out!

    I thought Annabelle was the first Snowhook doggie to touch the burled arch but I on Snowhook’s blog and T & G’s Mama is right. It was Whitey-Lance.

    CHobbit: Gah! I can relate. Our carpenter says he is going to get our deck built before winter but as each day passes and he hasn’t started, I am losing hope. Then again, he is not getting paid the big bucks. He is a friend of a friend. If I were you I would complain long and loud to the boss of this company.

    Snowbella has set up a dedicated SDD for donating to the bootie fund. This is to enable more people than just the plunderers to donate to snowhook.

    So from now on Donation notices should be sent to snowhookshakeyourbootie@gmail.com
    NOTE: that is bootie with an I and an E.

    I will check the new addy occasionally and especailly if someone reminds me. Today we did get another donation and it was promptly matched making 50.00 more in the bootie fund. Now we are up to 425.00 dollars in the bootie fund. AND there is 140 left in matching funds! That means that before that 140. matches future donations we will have another prize winner…

    Whoo

    Hooo

    Git is British slang.

    Yowser. Another 25 dollars has been stolen from someones treatie fund and given over to the bootie bandit. Heh heh heh The Bootie Bonanza is now at 475.00. It is painfully close to 1/3 funded! That is frickin AMAZING!

    We are getting really really close to the next prize. Do you remember the butterfly pin? I hope you do because I can’t find the dratted picture on this computer. I have too many computers. grump.

    We love that word “git”. It is a mild British insult, coming from the old English ” get” referring to illegitimate offspring. So calling someone a bit is like calling them a b@st@rd. But it is usually said in a light way as a cuss, such as “you grumpy old git”, or ” you silly git”.

    (Can’t help it – we watch a lot of British TV)
