    What is gone too soon…baseball perhaps?

    Good morning all.

    I think that is what he means, Bee. Not too soon for me!

    Good morning all. Off to work now.

    Good morning, HRH B and BM&L! Baseball would be our guess. Chilly here this morning (for here), in the low 40’s.
    Have a therapeutic Thursday 🙂

    I don’t think it’s baseball.

    The tag is for “mystery”.

    Good morning everyone.

    I managed to see the last two innings of the baseball game in the hotel last night. Congratulations to the Giants. It was a wild, up and down series.

    I’ll be catching a bus across the border into Bellingham this morning. This ia the first time I’ve tried this service. Supposedly they have wifi.

    I was going to say “the end of the month” until Wolfie pointed out the mystery tag.
    Dawson: Have a comfortable bus trip across the border.
    See ya soon!

    Rio: do you remember the sparkly collar you got from Belle Starr that you left behind at the Hobbit Hotel? It is the kitties favorite toy! I know you said you were leaving it for “safekeeping” until your next visit but it might be in shreds by the time the kittens leave for their furever homes.

    Good morning all. Reporting in from my mom’s laptop. So nice to have a keyboard with all working keys. Mom is feeling puny, so I am hanging out over here for day 2. This is a Kat house and I feel sneezy already.

    Hoping your mom will be feeling better soon.

    ML, slurp, lick, lick, bark! Hope you are feeling better soon 🙂 If not…Lucy Lou can get the crash cart disguise out, Darah does a great bear rug, Blondie, well, she is still a pup. Get better!

    Rose, Yes the names of Thing One and Thing Two have been changed. Although Mr.Staff likes to read he did not appreciate the names taken from Dr.Suess. grump. So the girl, Thing One, is now Keiko. She has a little tiny face with slanty eyes and I thought a Japanese name fit her well.

    I tried to find a Japanese name for Thing Two, the boy, but I couldn’t find one that I liked. So he is Henry after one of the main characters in Henry and Ribsy by Beverly Cleary. I really liked those books.

    I hope this name change is acceptable to you. Especially since Henry is already coming to his name. I think it is more the tone of voice but he does come. Keiko only comes to food.

    Both kittens are eating like little pigs and Henry has grown noticably in the last week. They are much more active and still friendly but not as clingy as they were at first. Alice still hisses whenever she goes by the door to thier room but Abbie is starting to worry less. Change is hard on old stubborn cats. Alice is the oldest and the most stubborn.

    I have started to wonder if making the quilt for River K Carpenter may have caused me to summon these two little cats. Here is the main fabric I used.

    And here is a picture of Keiko taken the second day she was with us.

    ML I hope these pictures didn’t make you feel even more sneezy.

    There is a great picture of Rob changing diapers on my Facebook and I can’t seem to move it. Can any of you get it on on the blog?

    There’s a new kid’s book – “Woof.” A Bowser and Bernie book.

    Correction – There’s a new kid’s book – “Woof.” A Bowser and Birdie book.

    Spence has said that these are the new ones he’ll be doing since there were contract problems with the “Through the Rabbit Hole” (Down?) series. Look like fun middle grade books 🙂

    There you go Zoe, He looks sort of worried to me. Happy, worried and a little bit of OMD!

    Love the Blankie, Staff!
    Back in the Day (Many Moons Ago) Nana had two kitties named Holly & Woody, which were very apt names at the time.

  30. Mollypop's Mom
    1:43 pm on October 30th, 2014

    HOH, Woof sounds like my kind of book. Instead of Chet and Bernie it has Bowser and Birdie and should not have the scary stuff.

  31. Wose-the Small and Meek
    1:44 pm on October 30th, 2014

    Staff: I am still proud to be godmother to Keiko and Henry. I like the name Henry. A strong name.

    Look at proud poppa Rob!

    Masquers: Keiko does have very green eyes, doesn’t she?

    Macy: Hope your mom is feeling tip-top soon!

    Wose, Wose, Wose, Wose, Wose! It came, came came! YOu are brilliant and the claendar is So professional! It is actually better than the one the TVA here puts out to warn about nuclear disasters. We only have to worry about March and pug poot disasters 🙂

  33. Wose-the Small and Meek
    1:46 pm on October 30th, 2014

    HOH’s: I hope you like the calendar….it was a fun project!

    Upon closer inspection of River’s diaper, I think I know why Poppa Rob has that expression…… :^)

  34. Wose-the Small and Meek
    1:50 pm on October 30th, 2014

    Plans for the 2016 calendar are already taking shape in my pointy head. That is, of course, if youse all want a 2016 calendar.

  35. Wose-the Small and Meek
    1:51 pm on October 30th, 2014

    Wondering if SQ/PA received his calendar….

  36. Wose-the Small and Meek
    1:59 pm on October 30th, 2014

    Staff: I love, love, LOVE, the kitty quilt, too!

  38. Riö -The Evil Pug

    River!…He is pooping up a storm!…snort!

  39. Masquers
    2:28 pm on October 30th, 2014

    My dear Rose, there is no doubt a 2016 Plunderer calendar is wanted by all.
    I must say…you have quite an amazing natural talent for this and anything to do with art.
    About Rob’s expression, I agree that is what is most likely behind it.
    Like Staff said too…it’s a little bit of everything combined in one revealing look.

  40. Riö -The Evil Pug
    2:42 pm on October 30th, 2014

    Diaper!…Now imagine the smell…gah!

  41. Wose-the Small and Meek
    3:16 pm on October 30th, 2014

    GONE TOO SOON…..I wonder if Spence is referring to Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, who passed away today.

  42. Wose-the Small and Meek
    3:18 pm on October 30th, 2014

    Dearest Masquers: Thank you for your compliments. With new kitties and new Plunderers joining us, it will be my great pleasure to continue the PLUNDER ON! calendar tradition.

  43. Wose-the Small and Meek
    3:20 pm on October 30th, 2014

    RIO! I guess young River is taking after his pug namesake when it comes to poop! snort

  44. Riö -The Evil Pug
    4:08 pm on October 30th, 2014

    Rose!…I sent you something from my little Go-Phoney…snort!

  45. Wose-the Small and Meek

    RIO! I sent you something back from my little Go-Phoney. chuffle!

    The Prof is back teaching at the Big House beginning this evening. Guess I will watch a movie….

  47. Riö -The Evil Pug
    5:03 pm on October 30th, 2014

    Rose!…Watch “The Glenn Miller Story” with Jimmy Stewart…snort!…That is a really good movie and well worth watching…chuffle!

    Back home from the office, but have to fill in tomorrow. Soooo, Chinese food is being ordered. House Lo Mien Noodles (shrimp, chicken, pork and scallops) and an egg roll. Orders are generous, so there will be enough for lunch tomorrow. Unless Bear wants to swing by?

    I could not get wifi on the bus but I had a book to read and snacks to eat so I was happy.

    Wose: I haven’t yet seen the 2015 calendar but I can safely say, yes, I will want one in 2016 too!

    Excellent picture of River’s dad!

  55. Wose-the Small and Meek
    7:21 pm on October 30th, 2014

    Awesome, I can’t wait for you to see the calendar. I hope you will like it! Happy trails to you!

    RIO! I have never seen “The Glenn Miller Story”, but based on your recommendation, I will definitely watch for it. I love Jimmy Stewart. I watched “Strike Up the Band” with Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland. They were so good together.

    Greetings, family

    Another fun day, lost in the morass of bureaucratic silliness. Most recent example – Brother needs to be in hospice care. Hospice care can only come in at the request of brother’s primary care doc. But brother’s primary care doc retired while brother was in the hospital. No new doctor will take brother on unless brother goes to doctor’s office for exam and preliminaries. But brother is too sick to be able to leave rehab with us, and can only get to the doc’s office if he has hospice to transport him. But he can’t get hospice unless he has a primary care doctor…..
    Does anyone else find this to be remarkably cyclical and preposterous?

    Anyway, we now know what Mama will be for Halloween. She was getting her Pink Bulldozer outfit out today, dusting it off, adding some sparkles and sharpening the blade.

    (whispering – p.s. – Brother now has a primary care doc, and will be in hospice care as of tomorrow. Or else)

  59. Wose-the Small and Meek
    7:41 pm on October 30th, 2014

    T&G: Sounds like several pant legs need to be grabbed.
    I feel very sorry for those in the path of the Pink Bulldozer…..VROOOM! VROOOM!

    Heh! Alex Rodriguez is no longer on suspension. It is reported that he will be back with the Yankees, possibly at first base.

  61. Herd of Hounds
    8:24 pm on October 30th, 2014

    T&G, “morass” is a great word..we love it! So much going on now. Just hope we can keep up! Love seeing Rob with the diaper this a.m.
    Got all of our schiitake in line for March 2015. We just hope and pray that 2016 will work, too.

  62. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    8:25 pm on October 30th, 2014

    One would think that the doctor could take the time to request hospice even if he is retired. Would that be too much to ask?

  63. Herd of Hounds
    8:26 pm on October 30th, 2014

    Blog should catch up to real time this Sat to Sun, yes?

  64. Tupper and Gilly
    8:29 pm on October 30th, 2014

    Barb – the doctor would, but insurance regs won’t recognize her as she is now “retired” and “out of system”.
    Sheesh – makes her sound like an uncirculated library book.

  65. Herd of Hounds
    8:29 pm on October 30th, 2014

    B&M&L, hope it isn’t too much but for y’all, WE would do anythang! Just let us know…pant leg, Porsche shelf, another yard…just let us know

  66. Herd of Hounds
    8:31 pm on October 30th, 2014

    Now, must let mom sleep since we awakened her at 5:45 🙁 OOps, our bad!

  67. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    8:52 pm on October 30th, 2014

    We also loved the picture of Rob with the poopy first diaper.

    T & G, well, that makes more sense. At least the doctor was wiling to help. And we should have said he/she, rather than he.

    Night all.

  68. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:00 pm on October 30th, 2014

    Poop!…I doubt that was the first or the last poopie diaper photo we will get to see….gurgle!

  69. Tupper and Gilly
    9:19 pm on October 30th, 2014

    Rio – we know how you just love the poopie diaper shots. tee hee

    If you are one of the facebookie types, you have to go read Phillip Walters story of his training run. Without being a spoiler, we will say that Rose (the puppy, not the person) is quite a little character.

    We are saying good night from out east. Day is done. Gone the sun…..sing along, you all know the rest….

    G’night, Family

  70. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:22 pm on October 30th, 2014

    OK, Rio, you asked for it! The first poops are called meconium,
    and are a result of the amniotic fluid swallowed by the baby before birth. They are sort of black or tarry.

    Now, night all.

  71. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:27 pm on October 30th, 2014

    Phillip!…No, I don’t follow Philly Walters…sniff!…But my friend knows first paw that Rose the dog is quite a character…snort!…Rose was the only one to get a little bit of disciple from AJ when my friend was on a training run with them…heh!heh!…Character indeed!

  72. Elliot the Massage Kat
    10:52 pm on October 30th, 2014

    From experience, A. Catty says those poopy diapers will get worse…but to cheer you up, check this out, you doogs (that’s what they call your nation over at Staff’s niece’s house,”the doogs.”

  73. Masquers
    12:14 am on October 31st, 2014

  74. Wose-the Small and Meek
    5:30 am on October 31st, 2014

    Elliot: That was a funny video!

    Ahem. Rose, the pup, not the person is definitely not meek, like the person.

    Know it is still dark thirty but LOVE the Cooper and Daisy ice cream video. Now putting the DDD’s b-day calendar out and sneaking back to bed 🙂
