    Good morning, everyone! With that snippet of TX trivia it makes us wonder why the architect designed it that way?

    Good Morning!! Mom just saw the pics of Melanie posted last night. What wonderful pictures and memories of a very special, talented person. And she would love the picture of River and Dan the dog!

    We plan to blur a cake and balloons to Rio’s house so they are there when Friend returns home from work. First, we have to, er, procure said items.

    Happy Birthday, Friend!!!!

    Yes, HOH, they are skiing and snowboarding in several inches of powder snow today on Mt. Hood, and undoubtedly thinking that life is GOOD!

    Also, when I checked the web cams for my favorite place, Yellowstone National Park, they are in the midst of an almost blizzard! They say if you haven’t been snowed on in Yellowstone every month of the year you are not really trying. But they really needed it this year.

    Blessings to all Chet’s friends today and happy birthday to Rio’s friend!

    Thieves! Can you possibly also pick up the case of Korbel Natural sitting on my porch and blur that over as well? Conan, Edgar and Pretty will be arriving later when they’re out of “sampling” range (and should not have tastes, no matter what they say I said).
    Happy Birthday to Rio’s friend.
    RIP Percy Sledge.

    Sigh. I should have known the reference was to “that” music. Thank you Abbie.

    Wose! No dark holes! No! How about a facial and a strengtheing glass (or seven) of champagne? I can blur the champagne over (with some aspirin for later)…
    How about an economics joke to cheer you? (OK this may take a while to think up…)

  26. Diane C.
    12:34 pm on April 15th, 2015

    Wose! What do you call a thousand economists locked in a room together and away from access to all media? (Answer–An excellent start!)

    I just found out that the BBC is producing a brief series titled, “Living in Squares,” about the Bloomsbury Group. Fun!

    Happy Birthday to Rio’s Friend! The Rockies need to win the game for her tonight. Timmy is pitching for the Giants. Unless his pitching improves, he is no longer to be feared.

    Tupper, Thank you for the lovely pictures of our friend. I always thought she looked so beautiful in that purple dress.

    Abbie, I like the song. There is also a video there of Glen Campbell playing the William Tell Overture on acoustic guitar…amazing.

    Bear, Cute pug cakes.

    B your music comment is cracking me up.
    The Chattanooga Lookout have their opening home game tonight. Let’s see if being owned by the twins helps them any. That comment is for Mr. fire slippers.

    An economics joke –
    A man walking in the countryside comes across a shepherd and a huge flock of sheep. He says to the shepherd, “I will bet you $100 against one of your sheep that I can tell you the exact number of animals you have here.” The shepherd thinks it over; it’s a big flock so he takes the bet. “973,” says the man. The shepherd is astonished, because that is exactly right. Says “OK, I’m a man of my word, take a sheep.” Man picks one up and begins to walk away.

    “Wait,” cries the shepherd, “Let me have a chance to get even. Double or nothing that I can guess your exact occupation.”
    Feeling smug, the man agrees. “You are an economist for a government think tank,” says the shepherd. “Amazing!” responds the man, “You are exactly right! But tell me, how did you deduce that?”

    “Well,” says the shepherd, “first, put down my dog and I will tell you.”

    (ok, no one said economists were a laugh riot)

    Love the jokes, and also the music. Bee, doesn’t it just make you want’a get up and dance?

    Notice they spelled Glen Campbell’s name wrong!

    Tupper’s mama, we are rolling on the floor laughing triple chocolate turtle. Ha?
    Where did that come from?

  38. Diane C.
    3:22 pm on April 15th, 2015

    Tupper’s Mama–I actually heard that one in church, but it was a private economic consultant with the following modification.
    The farmer replies “First, you came without being summoned; second, you wanted to charge me for information I already had; and third, you know nothing whatsoever about my business, now will you please give my dog back?”
    Also, thanks for yesterday’s pictures which I only just now got around to viewing.

    Thank you Diane.

    I had the title wrong. It is “Life in Squares.” James Norton will play Duncan Grant and Al Weaver will play Leonard Woolf. They were both in Grantchester. It will be filmed in London and at Charleston Farmhouse. Here’s a link:

    I recieved a text from the Thieves that just contained two words: Mother Jail. It seems like the cake and food drop didn’t go as planned. I don’t doubt my negotiating skills will have them sprung by the time Friend gets home.

    Tupper’s Mama: I’ve always liked that song.

  50. Herd of Hounds

    Always liked “Slow Dancin’ “. Are We really our parent’s generation?

  51. Herd of Hounds
    7:05 pm on April 15th, 2015

    B-days and other things aside do others remember the VW Transporter? There is a new one. If you are a munchkin like our mom or some other friends of CHobbit and friends, this might be something t travel in for the next decade

  52. Tupper's Mama
    7:13 pm on April 15th, 2015

    HOH – yup.

    The Storyteller and I danced to that at our wedding.

  53. Herd of Hounds
    7:15 pm on April 15th, 2015

    Slow dancin’ plain’ to the music. Slow dancin’ just me and my girl. Slow dancin’, playin to the music, slow dancin, just me and my girl.

    Our mom is thinking that she could retire/sell the Suburban (and low gas mileage) and take the T5 or T6 and make it the travel vehicle for her and the dogs like back in the 60/70’s. Wow…lots of thoughts going into this travel van.

    For all those waiting with baity breath for the latest report:
    GF (gentleman friend) and I went to IHOP for brunch and then to the observation area at DFW airport to bask in the sun and watch the planes land. Then he took me to his apartment, which he shares with his 19 year old twin daughters. One was home and horrified at the mess, which is what he was hoping for. Then he brought me home, as it was time for him to get ready for work, walked me to the door, and..oops all out of time for today. Tune in next week for the latest adventures of Overage Teens

    DA DA DA DA…the continuing story of…ML and her guy….What will happen? Heck, Who Knows and I ain’t gonna guess.. ML, either keep us informed or to heck with it. You silly gal you. (You will let us know, …won’t you?)

  60. Tupper and Gilly

    He kissed her. He kissed her!! I just know it! (If not, I can kiss her).

    Zeus was a very bad boy today. Momma says he is in the doghouse. I don’t know where the doghouse is though.

  62. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:27 pm on April 15th, 2015

    ML, we are curious too. We think there might have been a kiss at the door. Tune in tomorrow or next week.

    Night all.

    It seems the Thieves landed them selves in Mother Jail—a term used for when they’ve been caught by Friend’s mother. I have negotiated their sentence each time. Is this the third or fourth time?—I lose count. It seems this time they were found out after a situation that involved a double-dog dare, a gassy pug and lit birthday candles. Had that not happened, Mother wouldn’t have even have known they blurred by the house.

    Stop! Please stop. I have been on this blog for six years and now I’m being driven away. If your intent is to monopolize the blog, you have. And with such drivel.

    Yeep. I’d like to wish Rio a very Happy Birthday before the day is over. I hope your team won and your favorite Idol contestant sings on tune.

    Rio -so, did your friend have a grand and glorious day? Were Thieves involved?

    Howlers – we are sure that it wasn’t Zeus’s fault. He has been led down the path of destruction by his buddy Tundra.

    C. Hobbit! How sweet of you! I don’t know how to get your email address, and I am digging through my scraps of paper to see if I have one for HOH Mom from our meet up at PDX. So far my eratic scrap of paper file system is not serving me well! So here is my email and if you email to me I will happily email back to you! sandramikew at aol dot com. I spread it out, but you will put it together I’m sure.

    Did Zeus have anything to do with the messy pictures on FB?

    ML: Cliffhanger! Did You learn how to do that from Spencer Quinn?

    BooBear: Those are beautiful pansies. Staff planted some just like that on either side of our sidewalk today.

    Good night all.

  72. Tupper and Gilly
    11:02 pm on April 15th, 2015

    ML – usually we see that kind of picture from Tundra’s mom. Today it happened at the Howlers’ house.
    Uh oh.
