No Post Today

“Pretty busy around here today,” Spence says.

“How about we just leave everybody with yesterday’s post?” Admin says. “It’s a long one.”

“Suits me,” says Spence. “Wonder what Chet thinks.”

What do I think? Is that the question? Right now I’m thinking about how I missed National Bacon Day. How did that happen? And why can’t we have National Slim Jim Day to make up for it? Is that how come we’re having this election everyone’s talking about?

    Busy or procrastinating?

    Chet: This occurred to me yesterday. Horses don't naturally have shoes.

    Kirby: I read Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie and enjoyed it. And, yes, Flavia reminds me of Ingrid. I also read Bradley's latest Flavia novel, The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag but didn't like it as well as the first.

    Hi Staff. How are you doing? I liked FK's idea about the image of the motto square on the name badges….if that's possible.

    Mom got up this morning, had her coffee, and opened up the bookworm game. She liked having zin in case zaffre didn't work.

    Zaffre worked!! So she's back to our company now. She just couldn't wait until Sunday. Too much suspense.

  7. B.Stover
    4:52 am on September 24th, 2010

    Mollypop: Yes!! Dawson saved the day. I was worried that your game wouldn't accept "zin" and you'd have the Z that much closer to the bottom. If you get a chance, see if your game does accept "zin."

    Chet: Take the day off. You deserve it.

    Mollypop: Almost six million points. Yikes. Very Impressive.

    Rio: The baseball game had me talking to myself and answering back.

    Staff: You have chapter two already. 🙂

    As I hope you can see I took the advice of Fatty Kitty and used the quilt block for the picture. That lets all know that you are a participant in the blog quilt. If that is too subtle we can add Blog Quilt Participant on the badge too, but I don't think it is necessary.

  15. Siber-H
    6:20 am on September 24th, 2010

    Dawson, thanks…Your posts last night gave me a better idea of what happened in the Rockies game than the "official" websites did. Maybe CarGo's injuries are healed now, but it was a Phoenix fiasco.

  16. Riö - The Evil
    6:20 am on September 24th, 2010

    Sigh…. I can only dream that one day my friend will get a badge of honor….sniffle.

  17. B.Stover
    6:28 am on September 24th, 2010

    Staff: I really like the badges.

    SH: I like the sound of "Phoenix fiasco" but I don't know what it means.

    Which picture would you choose for your badge Rio?

    I'm making applesauce.

  18. Siber-H
    6:30 am on September 24th, 2010

    YES, Chet, you missed National Bacon Day and we all know why. Your humans falling asleep on the job is how it happened. Honestly, I am still miffed about Chet missing National Bacon Day.

    Chet. we cannot depend on the politicans to declare National Slim Jim Day. We will have to do it ourselves.

    Staff, I really like the badges, and using the one for Macy from the quilt works fine. I am partial to the picture of Miss Macy in the snow.

    Rio, that photo is perfect for your badge…maybe Melanie or Molly's mom could add a little Rockies ball cap on your head.

  25. B.Stover
    6:56 am on September 24th, 2010

    You look extremely fierce in that picture Rio.

    Do the losses mean that the Rockies won't be able to be in the playoffs?

  26. Siber-H
    7:06 am on September 24th, 2010

    I have my doubts, Stover. Rio, what do you think? The Rockies are the "Boys of Autumn"

  27. dawson
    7:25 am on September 24th, 2010

    Staff: Nice work on the badges. Very official looking. They should allow Macy MinPin's mom and dad front row seats.

    Macy MinPin: Like SiberH., I am partial to the picture of you frolicking in the snow.

    Rio: I like that picture of you, too. (Lois) Notice the teeth. Now Rio, these baseball games can go both ways. You could sweep the Giants for instance. The Rockies are good at the come-back. There is still a slim jim chance, isn't there?

    Melanie: How's our Rehab case?

    8:05 am on September 24th, 2010

    We like the badges, too. Macy, Do you think your folks could do a little personal shout-out to SQ for us when they get to meet him? We have ordered our signed book from the Houston book store, so he should be signing and paw printing it while he is there. Maybe just a gentle reminder that we are big fans.

    We didn't want to be piggy about ordering signed copies, so we also ordered from B & N for gift copies. We got an email that they have been shipped. I wonder if Barb will take a peek at the gift copies or if she will have will power to wait for her copy.

    Rio, What nice teeth you have! Do they mesh nicely as mine do?

    8:07 am on September 24th, 2010

    Dawson, Did you have to alert Lois to the teeth issue?

  30. Melanie
    8:18 am on September 24th, 2010

    Dawson: The rehab dude is doing well.

    UPS came just a second ago, but unless T-FAT comes in a box 2 feet by 3 feet, I'm out of luck.

    I've just been looking at the MLB standings…This series that the Rockies play with the Giants this weekend is critical for the Rockies to win to get in the playoffs. It starts tonight!

    SiberH!… A very good friend of my friend has a cousin or niece who decided she would spend a year in Alaska teaching in a small village…. Snort!… Her blog is very entertaining and I thought you would probably enjoy reading her adventures in Alaska…. Wheeze!…. Here is the link to her blog if you want to check it out!

  43. B.Stover
    11:16 am on September 24th, 2010

    Why is punctuation being celebrated with a national day? To make people more aware? Does it help?

  44. Riö - The Evil

    Rio: I looked at Alaska blog. It's very good. The pilot laughed "in a French accent." I like that! She seems very energetic. Her students are lucky.

  46. B.Stover

    12:13 pm on September 24th, 2010

    Thanks Rio! Wow! She gets to live on the fabled Yukon River and eat moose stew. I am sooo jealous. One hundred bucks for medical evacuation insurance isn't bad. I wonder if they will let sled dogs take out that insurance.

    It will be interesting to see how she survives the loooong dark and the cold. I'm sure she will do just fine. She will get to ride around on snow machines once the snow comes. FUN!!!

    12:20 pm on September 24th, 2010

    Alaska!… I think it will be fun to follow her for the coming year… grunt!… My friend wants to introduce herself to her sometime since they know the same people… sneeze! … SiberH you should introduce yourself and maybe she will let you stay with her for the winter!….heh! ….You could pull her around town on the sled….cough!

    Good blog Rio,

    Very interesting. I really liked that she put a map there so we could get a better idea of where she was.

    So you want a ChettheDog ID as well as your business card? Heh heh heh You greedy puglet you. I think that can happen. I won't tell Alice. She does not have one yet. The one with the hat, right?

  52. Siber-H
    12:30 pm on September 24th, 2010

    I think, also, that it will be interesting to follow her for a year. She is below the Arctic Circle so she won't have total darkness this winter.

    I would, you know I would, pull her around the village on a sled or up and down the Yukon River. Woo Woo

    Melanie, surprise! I know where the pictures are of me. They are on the July 20 2010 blog titled "A Real Bad Racket" Mom wrote it down for me because she knew we'd never remember where they were.

    Bee, I posted earlier that B & N emailed that they shipped as well.

  60. B.Stover
    2:15 pm on September 24th, 2010

    B&M: I saw your post and that made me wonder why amazon had not shipped the book. I know I'll get the Kindle edition on Sept. 28 but I also want to feel the dust jacket with the special paper. You gave a Kindle to your nephew but did you get one for yourself?

  61. Barb & Maggie
    2:15 pm on September 24th, 2010

    Barb just told me that Lady Ga Ga's meat outfit consisted of about 40 lbs of flank steak and had to be refrigerated till she wore it. Now they are going to make jerky out of it and preserve it. FOR WHY? I think they should make it into chew strips for us guys!

  62. Barb & Maggie
    2:25 pm on September 24th, 2010

    Bee, Barb got a Kindle for her nephew when they were about $264 and now they are $139. That is upsetting! He is 22 and he loves it. She decided to stick with regular books for now. She thought seriously about getting one, but decided she likes the old fashioned comfort of holding the book in her hands, plus the added bonus of being able to loan out and add to her library.

  63. B.Stover
    2:56 pm on September 24th, 2010

    B&M: When I bought the Kindle they were $500. I think amazon should give me many books for free.

  64. Melanie
    2:58 pm on September 24th, 2010

    Hmm. So Lady Ga Ga's meat dress was because she's against eating meat or for eating meat? I'm confused. . .

    Riö: Love the site, to tired to read it tonight will read it tomorrow.

    Siber-H: I had to go with a vintage hat. Hope you like it!

  65. Barb & Maggie
    3:01 pm on September 24th, 2010

    Bee, Now we don't feel so bad!

    Melanie, It was evidently because she doesn't want people to think she is "just a piece of meat". Well, she certainly got enough publicity out of it!

    We are not one of those who have anything else to do on Friday nights, mom has been hogging the computer all day messing with her farm.

    We love the badges, dad is skipping, skipping. Rio, darling, I do not mind catch up reading except when it is a weeks worth. By the way..badges should not be worn indiscriminately. Only to official Chet-the-Dog events. We don't want to dilute the specialness of it. Of course, that is easy for us to say since WE HAVE A PLACE TO WEAR IT!!!

    Rio, your cap is very cute. As far as what it is sitting on…..

    SiberH…wrowr..sometimes I wish I could purr.

    Ladies don't wear caps, just a nice jersey.

    …mutter grunt…

    I have to admit that I think of the little puglet whenever I see a pug also…

    In fact there is a quilt book made just for one yard cuts of fabric and it has a Pug right on the front cover!

    I just noticed it at the quilt shop today.

    Hey everybody! I'm sure most everyone is probably going to bed by now — I haven't had time to catch up on what everyone has written — but Mom and Dad just got home from Dad's football game. What a nailbiter! Dad's team was behind 14 to 7, then we scored to make it 14-13, then missed the extra point. They scored again, then we scored to make it 21-19, so we went for two points to tie it up. But we didn't make it, so it was still 21-19. Then we got the ball back and drove it down the field, and with about a minute left tried for a field goal — missed! It looked like the game was a goner — and Dad's the special teams coach, so it was on his shoulders. So the other team ahd it back after the missed field goal, and all they had to do was hold onto the ball, but they fumbled and we recovered! We drove it down the field again, but didn't get the first down, so we were forced to try another field goal — and this time we made it!!! We won 22-21!!! The crowd — well, the 20 or so parents who made it to the game, which is the problem with a boarding school — went wild!!! Wow, I wish I had been there, such excitement!!!

    Kirby, the 2 of us are doing the wave in honor of your dad's team's win. Seems like they would take you to the game just to help fill in the "crowd".

    Macy out.
