No Post Today

Why not? Because we just found out Bernie’s mom is coming for Thanksgiving. Bernie’s mom is a piece of work. For one thing she’s bringing a new husband, name of Lenny. “How many husbands does that make?” Suzie said. Bernie didn’t know, so that means it must be a big number. Bernie’s real good with numbers, except when the numbers are about money.

Here’s another thing: She calls Bernie Kiddo! What’s up with that?

So now Bernie and I are searching the whole house for the pot that we deep fry the turkey in. “How can we have lost a big thing like that?” Bernie says. A good question, as humans say. But what does that mean, exactly? I’m not sure I like questions of any kind. But I do like Thanksgiving, my very favorite holiday. Is it tomorrow?

    Doesn't cooking in that turkey pot mean that the firemen come?

    We hope Bernie cooks that turkey outside, if he is going to use a deep fryer. They can be dangerous if used inside.

    We saw on the news this morning that special security is in force during the Obama's visit to India to protect them from MARAUDING MONKEYS!

    Since Thanksgiving is over two weeks away, I don't understand why Bernie is in a dither so soon.

    Good morning Mollypop and B&M and everyone.

    MollyPop: I think you are correct about the firemen.

    Barb & MagPie: Between Staff's coyotes and marauding monkeys, rampaging goats, and beaver attacks, do you think Nature is trying to tell us something?

    B.Stover: I think if Zoë were like Bernie's mom, I, also, would be in a dither.

    Good morning all, from the ice encased Western Hills of Massachusetts!

    Zoë needed to go out to get a new vacuum. For some reason they do not last too long here. So 20 minutes before she left I went out to start the car. I had to crawl in the passenger side and use my cane for the clutch! Yup, normal for up here.

    The furnace is FIXED!

    And I think that the No Post is so we don't get back to the Astrid case.

    Melanie, we saw the iced roads on TV this morning and hoped you had escaped some of that – that maybe you were more to the west. Guess not.

  7. Mollypop
    4:35 am on November 8th, 2010

    MagPie! Oh no – not marauding monkeys now!

    Melanie – Are the beavers marauding yet? Maybe they have to get their dams built before they attack.

    Thanksgiving!… Now I’m hungry again!… wooooo!… I didn’t realize it was tomorrow!…sniff!..This is great news!…slurp!… Thanks Chet!

    Lenny!….What do you guys bet Bernie’s mom makes an appearance in C&B 4 with ole Lenny?…. snort!snort!…I wonder if Lenny resembles the Lenny in Of Mice And Men… I can’t wait to find out!…heh!

    Good morning, y'all! I'm not sure what Thanksgiving will bring around here. My girl has to work the next day — there's a big interstate rivalry football game up there on Friday, so she's going to be busy! So Mom and Dad are wondering if she should make a quick trip back home for the holiday, or if they should go to Clemson for the day. But if they do that, there won't be any goodies for me! Yikes!!!

    P.S. I still think Thanksgiving is not much of an excuse for no post today. Unless Bernie's afraid it's going to take him two and a half weeks to find that pan!!! Maybe Spence just wants to string us along until Christmas so he can give us all a special present: the solution to Astrid's case!!!

  10. Kirby T. Penworthy
    4:53 am on November 8th, 2010

    Oops! That should be intrastate rivalry — between Clemson and the University of South Carolina. Inside the state, not between!

  11. Barb & Maggie
    5:14 am on November 8th, 2010

    Mollypop, Do you think Rio will freak out when he hears about the marauding monkeys?

    They said the monkeys bite children on their way to school, and one governor (I think) fell to his death when he was trying to fend off a monkey attack on his balcony. Evidently the monkeys are sacred, so they will not destroy them, only relocate the captured ones. Good grief!

  12. Barb & Maggie

    Mom has to leave, too, and shut off the computer. I would grumble about that, but one of the errands she's doing before work involves getting Buford and me some of our special dog food from the special dog food place!

    Oh, and I don't know if I'll be back tonight, because my boy's getting inducted into an honor society at his college. After all Mom and Dad have been through with him, they're pretty proud of it, and they want to be there to cheer for him! And then they're taking him out for a special dinner — Mom says not McDonald's!!!

  16. Gus and BooBear
    6:28 am on November 8th, 2010

    Congrats to your boy, KirbyT. Tell your Mom to bring you a doggie bag.

    Maybe it's too cold where SQ is and he can't get over to his office. Or maybe all Chet can think about is turkey!

    Mom forgot the map at home this morning so it won't get posted until tomorrow night. Not a good start for her impressing you guys with her blog savvy.

    The winter advisory will be over at noon. So all this dagblasted ice better be gone by then! The main road is fine. Our road is "interesting". Zoë had no trouble with the car. Though why people decide that ice is a good surface to speed in the cars is troubling.

    I'm having trouble with being awake. A Nor'Easter will do that to me and then there's the time change. I think my idea of 1/2 hour back would really work.

    I just don't see Congress agreeing to that.

    This blankety blank computer has me all upside down and backwards, but at least I'm here.

    SEX! That's the third thing you are not supposed to discuss at dinner parties. Sex, politics and religion. But that was the saying 30/40 years ago. Nowadays everybody talks about sex.

    B.Stover: The video/audio of the starlings was a great way to start the day. And: Rio was seeing double which was why he had so many toys – because he absorbed some of Staff's medication during the mauling he gave her.

    A special hello back to LizF – my Aussie friend.

    Congratulations to Kirby's boy being inducted into honor society. Wow.

    WolfieSadButt: Get that wiggle back! I can see your boys being inducted into an honor society as well. They just have some work to do first. Give them time and love.

    Melanie: You should write a book! Of all your funny stories with the Newfs. Loved the Rosie story about peanut butter and melatonin. Bess looks wonderful. Glad you got out for the walk with the dogs. Be careful of those beavers. And: A huge boom – the nasty smell of oil? Has BP set up shop in your basement? Glad you got it fixed so quickly.

    Chet: Tell Bernie that there was one really great speaker at the convention I went to on the way here: Maude Barlow. She talked about the world's supply of fresh water and how and why it is dwindling.

    Rio: Great list. I didn't realize how very many of us regulars there are. And I'm the bubble gum.

    It is absolutely a lovely day here so I am going on a bike ride.

    I'm back home…without my car. They dropped me off because they won't be able to get to it for "a while." Before Saturn closed I could walk to the dealership. Now….

    Melanie: It's sunny and 55 here but we will have our days of ice also. Keep warm.

    Wolfie: Hope you're okay.

    Which of the C&B novels mentioned Bernie deep frying a turkey?

    Hey!… Noswad is back!…snort!… It’s like the whole gang is gathering for Thanksgiving!!…wheeze!…. I can’t wait for turkey and gravy and potatoes and stuffing and PIE-PIE-PIE!…yeep!yeep!

  25. Melanie
    8:16 am on November 8th, 2010

    Riö: You and Chet better eat something before Thanksgiving, because, I hate to tell you, it is NOT tomorrow!

  26. B.Stover
    8:24 am on November 8th, 2010

    Rio: The thing that's loose on my car is a "plastic splash guard" which they will either fix or replace. It better not costs hundreds of thousands, or even hundreds.

    Thanksgiving is 17 days away.

  27. B.Stover
    8:26 am on November 8th, 2010

    I know that there was some kind of disaster when Bernie deep fried a turkey. On the blog on Dec. 2, 2009 ("Leftovers") Chet tells us about the deep fired turkey and that Bernie fried potatoes in the same oil. That isn't what I'm thinking of but can't find anything on a Kindle search.

  28. Siber-H
    8:38 am on November 8th, 2010

    What do you mean Thanksgiving isn't tomorrow!! How many days to I have to wait? It is my favorite holiday just like it is Chets.

    It is going to be 70 degress here today, also. I'm glad they got Melanie's furnace fixed so quickly, on a Sunday evening no less. We never have ice like that here. I hope they get Stover's car fixed quickly. As mom says, we are at their mercy.

    Bernie, every year at Thanksgiving on the news they show a house going up in flames because the people used a deep fat turkey fryer. Our neighbors on both sides of us use one of those turkey fryers. GASP!

    Oops!

    Dad is doing the laundry as he does each Monday. Went down to tell him I was going on my bike ride and there was water geysering from the lint trap on the discharge hose and all over the floor. An easy fix so I'm off to the hardware store for lint traps. I like the hardware store because they have a popcorn popper and give you free popcorn.

  31. noswad
    8:45 am on November 8th, 2010

    Yikes!

    SiberH: I hear from the North that all the snow that fell before I left has melted.

  32. B.Stover
    8:48 am on November 8th, 2010

    We're at the mercy of machines! Furnaces, lint traps, cars. Yikes! This makes me feel very insecure.

  33. Siber-H
    8:52 am on November 8th, 2010

    The snow will return, Noswad. I want free popcorn now since I have to wait so long till turkey day.

  34. B.Stover
    8:56 am on November 8th, 2010

    My car is ready! The splash guard doesn't have to be replaced because they fixed it "no charge." (They–Pontiac dealership which took over Saturn maintenance–want to make sure I go back there for service.) So oil and lube is all I pay for. Now I have to wait for them to pick me up.

  35. B.Stover
    8:59 am on November 8th, 2010

    Melanie: Computers don't make me insecure but I'm not sure why they don't.

    Mary!… Someone asked me about Mary, the girl who has the Alaska By Boot blog…snort!… Last month her mother was tragically killed in a car crash and Mary had to go back to Nebraska to be with her family….sniff!… I just heard today that she is back in Alaska teaching, but she is having a hard time up there….snuffle!… Her family wants her to find a teaching job down here somewhere…grunt!… Not sure what will happen at this point.

  37. Gus and BooBear
    9:04 am on November 8th, 2010

    Dad deep fries his turkeys every year but he's smart enough to do it outside. It can make a real mess sometimes. But it is soooooooo good! Of course down here it's usually pretty warm and no problem being outside.

  38. Barb & Maggie
    9:18 am on November 8th, 2010

    Barb's brother in N.C. usually deep frys their turkey, too. He also has the sense to cook it outside. He says it is very moist and nott greasy it all.

    That is really sad news about Mary's mother. I hope she comes back to the lower states, at least for now.

  39. A. Catty Librarian
    9:23 am on November 8th, 2010

    Poor Mary. I think fatal car crashes are the worst for everyone. It's a shocking numbing surprise. I worry when my loved ones are on the road.

    However I do not feel sorry for the turkeys. Yum! Wild rice dressing, giblet gravy, broccoli salad, cranberry sauce, and I hope Turtleman Fred makes pies. Hm. Maybe I don't care if there is any turkey with all the other wonderful stuff.

  40. B.Stover

    The following is a Rant. If you don't want to read the Rant, please skip.

    Soo, it's not enough today that we had an ice storm, and

    my knee will be doing fine and then all of a sudden send shooting, unbelievable awful pain, and

    the hospital lab lost ALL TEN of my vials of BLOOD and

    wanted me to go back to Springfield, that's one hour and 45 min. away, no that's not enough.

    I'm standing out side and a NASTY person in a mini van, aims for a puddle AND

    sprays slush all up my left side.

    There are times I wish I drank alcohol.

    My knee appointment is on Thursday.

    I'm only going to Northampton, 35 minutes away, to have my blood taken again.

    And if I see that mini van, I'm shooting it.

    11:46 am on November 8th, 2010

    Melanie what is it about your family that causes your blood to be so good at hiding? We second the motion that you should shoot the van.

    Mom says that they have a turkey fryer at The Big Orange Box that does not use oil. Uhh..doesn't frying by definition require frying? It says it cooks with infrared, but by me that makes it infraredding. Either way, I like turkey, turkey, turkey and would not mind a turduckin either.

    We would pay money to see the prez vs. monkey fight.

  52. B.Stover
    11:47 am on November 8th, 2010

    Good grief. I didn't have to pay anything for my car maintenance. I received a card from Saturn giving the Pontiac dealership as the place to take the car, for four "complimentary" maintenance services. I guess I hadn't believed that that meant no charge. I promised them that I'd bring it back for the 90,000 mile check-up. Well, Well.

  53. Macy the Min-Pin
    11:48 am on November 8th, 2010

    I think the monkeys are sacred because of the monkey god, Hanuman, a hindu deity. There's also a temple (perhaps more than one!) where the rats are sacred and they are EVERYwhere.

    Sorry to hear about ice storms! it's finally warming up here, although there are lots of thunderstorms and Cricket is terrified of them.

    Wolfie, if you care to talk about it, what is the update on your boys?

    Liz mentioned rats – this morning Barb saw something about rats being trained to find land mines in Tanzania. She said she thinks they take about 9 months to be trained, and then can be used for 5-6 years. Maybe we should start shipping ours over there!

    Well, Barb is about to start the evening of HELL. She has been on a liquid diet all day, and now has to drink this awful stuff to prep for a colonoscopy tomorrow morning. She has to drink 8 oz. of this stuff every 15 minutes till she has downed 12 glasses. Then up at 3:30 to try to drink more. Off to the hospital at 5:30 a.m. Her hospital seems to be more on top of things than Melanie's!

    Barb, the good thing is, at least in Mom's experience, is that when it is all over, they show you a picture of your squeaky clean colon from the inside, yikes. I am pretty sure that the nation does not get routine colonoscopies, at least not this girl. My insurance doesn't cover it.

    I don't think it was a goat driving the mini van, could have been a boor boar.

    You would think that I could be spotted in a bright blue and red coat!

    LizE: I'm glad Susie is back too. She was also at yesterday's party.

    Alice: love the Halloween pics. And do you notice how many people dress up their Pugs?

    Barb: Good luck tomorrow (and tonight) Been there done that, don't have to do it again for a long time!

    MagPie: Good luck rounding up all the rats.

    Riö: It was the same hospital lab that lost all of Dan's stuff.

    Whew. .

    AND Wölfie's back! How's the dude? Are you wiggling your butt yet? Will send you a message when I need you to blur over and pee on that van.

    I'm very sad. My Boy's dear friend was killed in Afganistan. His parents have gone to pick up his body.

    I don't want political comments – I just needed to say this and that Mom is writing a letter to President Obama.

    I'm sorry Sam. YSAS's best friend was killed there two years ago. He went to the funeral and said that it was very reaffirming the way his friend's unit and other people in the Army supported his family.

    His friend was also an actor but decided that he needed to follow his grandfather's footprints and joined up. He loved the Army.

    YSAS misses him.

    Stover!… I’m glad LizF pointed out the obvious and you will be able to communicate safely with her…heh!… I now have your email address in my pawssession…Yes!… We are watching a very interesting series from BBC On Demand called Luther!… grunt!… You should check it out before the 1st episode is gone…snort!…It is very good indeed!

    Between ice storms, labs and mini vans, I am exhausted.

    Off to bed, if I can get Patsy to move over!

    And I misspelled it – Afghanistan.

    Molly and Aunt Mollysmom came today and we all had dinner and talked and talked. I positioned myself just in case anything fell, but otherwise I was part of it too. Dad came home early and made dinner – stuffed pork chops.

    Sammie!…My friend thinks it must be very nice to have friends you can talk and talk to while someone else makes dinner…snort!…She is maybe a little jealous of that…sigh.

    Stover!…Because episode one was so good, we are going to watch episode two of Luther!…grunt! … No baseball or anything else happening tonight…sigh….

    My Girl made the creamed corn. That means she opened the can and stirred it on the stove. I think she opened the applesauce too.

    Sammie!…Your girl sounds very talented to me…snort!…Anyone who can open a can with food in it Rocks Big Time in my book!…heh!… Hang in there Sammie, this here Pug is all for you tonight…sniff!

    Stover!… Why didn’t you tell me specifically about Mr. Luther???… grunt!…That’s okay, we needed something decent to watch tonight, just glad we found him….snort!…When the HELL does Breaking Bad start again??….I am seriously having withdrawals from those two knit wits… heh!

  97. B.Stover
    4:03 pm on November 8th, 2010

    Rio: I thought that I did tell you about Luther. A new Lie To Me is on tonight. I was going to watch it but I'm falling asleep in the chair.

    The governor of New York just said flags will fly at half staff for Sam's Boy's friend. That doesn't change anything but can make people feel better about this.

    I'm back! Mom says it was a very nice ceremony, with candle lighting and everything. And then they went to Red Lobster for dinner. Mom brought home a doggie bag, but it went into the refrigerator instead of my tummy! What's that all about?

    Sam: I'm so sorry about your boy's friend. My Dad used to be in the Army, and post was a really sad place whenever something happened to one of the soldiers. Mom says that when Dad was in Somalia — twice! — she was really scared a lot of the time. She's glad he retired before this new business started.

    Kirby!…Your big guy is a Hero also!… snort!… We honor him and thank him so much for his service to this here country and blog… gruff!…Thanks Mr. Kirby… grunt!…What can I do for you pal?…sniff!

    Veterans Day is Thursday. I hope the whole country will remember, honor, and be thankful for all our Veterans and service members on that day.

    Thanksgiving! … I think during this Thanksgiving we should all say a very special Thanks with True Gratitude in our hearts to all of the men and women who have given so much for the most part of a decade now for our homeland safety from terrorism …..grunt!… Unbelievable, as that is…sigh!…So many lives lost or destroyed, so much grief and despair… sniff!…This is a world of sorrows….

    Hope!… We here still live in hope. The world is tough and very harsh for so many of us but there is still Hope…sniffle!… She has a heart for those in need….snort!…Main reason we NEVER go on extravagant vacations….grunt!…We here, she says, have so much compared to so many in the world…wheeze!… Having a home, enough food to eat, clean water to drink, a car! is WAY MORE than the majority of the people who live on this planet… sniff!.. That is a very amazing thought. We all should give more to those who do not have enough. …snuffle… World Vision is the main organization we give the most to…snort!…Help the kids.

    How eloquent you are Rio. That men and women are over there still is something to remember every day. I can't improve on what the Pug-Poet said so I won't try.

    Barb – hope every thing is over fast tomorrow.

    Rio: Thanks, I think Dad was a pretty big hero, too! I hope when you're remembering the veterans you give a little thanks to their families, too. They sacrifice a lot, moving every few years, saying goodbye to their loved ones and not knowing if or when they'll see them again. Especially these days — many of our military units are in their third or fourth deployment overseas — that's tough all around.

    Sam, we are sorry for the loss of your boy's friend. We are very glad there are young men heroic enough to stand and defend this country, but hate the loss of life. Words aren't enough.

    Our hearts go out to all who knew and loved the young man.

    Well, it's after midnight now, and Mom says 5:00 comes awfully early, especially when it's cold out! Not that our cold compares with the cold you Northerners are having, but Mom's still a California girl at heart! And my Southern bones aren't liking the morning chill too much either. I've gotta try talking Dad into putting my coat on when we go for our walk tomorrow! Luckily, they've been covering me up with a blanket when I go to bed at night — nothing better than a nice, warm bed to cuddle up in!

    Good night, y'all!

    P.S. If I figure right, Rio was the #100 post, so I guess that means he has to slobber himself!!!

    Thanks for saying what I wanted to but couldn't find the words.

    Good Pug.
