No Post Today

“Because you’re going to the dentist?” says Spence.

“I hate going to the dentist,” Admin says.

“But all they’re doing is taking an impression.”

“How am I supposed to breathe while that’s happening?”

“Through your nose.”

“I do breathe through my nose,” Admin says. “But I like to have the option.”

What’s this? Something about human teeth? They make such a fuss about pretty much nothing.

    LOL! It’s even worse when you have a chatty dentist.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning, Bee! I hope you’re having a good morning, anyway. Here it’s a little gray and dreary. But the good new is that the clouds are supposed to burn off and this afternoon will be sunny and 76. Maybe I’ll go back outside and find my ball…hmmmm, now where did I bury that thing?

    Hi Kirby. The sky is a slate white here and it looks very misty out there. It’s supposed to get to 64 with sunshine but it doesn’t look like it now. We had really bad thunderstorms last night…the thunder woke me up and the lightning seemed to spread across the entire sky. Strum and stir….

    Hope CHarris finally got some sleep.

    Hey! Dad is getting impressions at the dentist today also! He isn’t posting either.

    And… found her tomato seeds last night. She had put them in a basket in her sewing room so that she wouldn’t lose them. Sigh.

    Good morning Bee (Supreme Commander) and Kirby.

    Wonder if Lois will be working on Admin?

    Hope all goes well with Zoe and her doc. appointment today.

  6. Wolfie
    9:31 am on March 21st, 2011

    I really liked Lois but I think we scared her off.

    So, Bee, will your students address you as such? Dr. Supreme Commander?
    It does have a nice ring to it.

    Wolfie, Tell Mary that Barb was just getting ready to send her an email to get your address, so we could mail another package to you. Glad you found them. Are you starting plants inside?

    We had total succes with our seeds. All 27 of the pots containing our seeds have sprouted. The other 9 have not. There were 3 peppers, which take longer, and 6 pots planted with old tomatoe seeds that we had purchased.

    Natasha – There was an omission in your report (that I intercepted). You failed to mention that I am very fierce. Just ask the fuzzbutts. I also have a poufy tail and Mom says poufy means fierce.

    About the intelligence operation, I deny everything.

  9. Wolfie
    9:45 am on March 21st, 2011

    Yes I am, Barb. What kind if soil should I use?

  10. Barb & Maggie
    10:03 am on March 21st, 2011

    Wolfie, We use the Jiffy 3″ peat pots and Jiffy Organic seed-starting mix. You can leave the plants in those pots when planted outside. Fill the pot about 2/3 full, so you can later add more mix as the plant grows. Dampen soil, put 2 or 3 seeds in each pot, and poke seed in a little bit. We put all the pots on a tray and cover with plastic wrap, or a plastic dome if you have one. That keeps soil moist. After plants sprout (about a week) remove plastic, put in a south facing window. I use florescent lights too. Later, keep just one plant per pot. When plants are 8-9 weeks old, plant deep, at least up to first leaves. That delevopes a better root system. You will need to stake them or use tall cages, as heirlooms tend to grow really tall. Good luck!

    Blast! I wish I had room around here to plant tomatoes. Sigh.

    Wolfie: My students call me “Professor Stover.” We have some very excellent students.

    I found this good weather site in an article in the NYTimes:

  12. C. Harris
    10:36 am on March 21st, 2011

    B. Stover: it was the end of spring break. I always have insomnia the last night before school starts again. Good morning all. This will be a day I have breakfast at school instead of at home.

    Dentist!… Ugh!…Impression!…gag!… Someone here says that’s the worst and the X-rays, and the cleaning and everything is the worst!….grunt! … It seems like Admin has a lot of trouble with his chompers. I wonder if he is getting a bridge? Maybe he should have them all pulled and get false teeth….yeep! ….All this talk of dentists makes my jumbly teeth hurt now….sniff!

  14. dawson
    10:56 am on March 21st, 2011

    B.Stover: That is a nice weather site. It is 5 degrees (F) and sunny skies. Well…the sun is not up yet because of daylight saving time but it will be a sunny sky soon. (Whew…avoided that comma splice.)

    Wolfie.I’m glad you found your seeds. Whenever I put things in a “safe place”, that item has the distinct possibility of never being found again. At least not until it is well past it’s “best by” date. (Money excepted.)I think I will start a “safe place” journal so I can find any future items I put in a “safe place”.

    Lois: Lois is the best researcher ever! If she could get all that data about teeth she would kick-ass (Sorry Stover – just a test to see if this gets moderated) on an interesting subject like Natasha the Hilarious Borzoi.

    Rio: Tell your friend that the single most important thing for me to do to hold Depression at bay is to tire myself out physically. That’s why I do the long walks and the bike rides.

    All this talk of Spring and plants starting to burst forth from the earth has me longing for it. I’ve been longing for it for over a month already. Another month or so…

  15. Kirby T. Penworthy
    11:18 am on March 21st, 2011

    Hey, y’all! Mom’s getting ready to leave so I’ll have to sign off for now. I hope y’all have a really great day!

    CHarris: Sorry you have to go back to school today. Dad dreads that, too. The first day of any break he’s already moaning that he only has x-days left! His spring break isn’t until the first week of April, though. Then after that he’ll have the whole summer off! (He used to teach summer school, then he figured out that he REALLY needs the summer off to recharge before he faces the little angels again in fall!)

    It is probably too late for this to help today, but a dental tech once told mom to wiggle her foot when impressions were being taken. It stops the gag reflex. One may feel slightly stupid doing it, but it works.

    I hope the Dr. can help Zoe today and all goes well at the appointment.

  17. BearSpiritDog
    11:37 am on March 21st, 2011

    Good Morning! Overcast here too.

    B. Nice link! Yes, those chatty dentists are the worst – telling jokes and asking questions there is no way to answer. Arrrgh.

    Dawson: I like the idea of a “safe place” journal – providing we can find the journal when we need it…

    Looks like everyone is in the planting mode. A sure sign of spring. B&M: Nana usually uses beginner plants – never tried seeds (although that’s the way Gram used to plant) She says omatoes are the best fruit, that is known as a vegetable, there is!

  18. B.Stover
    11:40 am on March 21st, 2011

    CHarris: I usually have back-to-school dreams and they usually involve not being able to find the room which is ridiculous since I almost always have the same room. (Now that is a compound sentence….but grammatically correct!)

  19. dawson
    12:21 pm on March 21st, 2011

    BearSpiritDog: Good point. Whatever you do, DO NOT put your “safe place” journal in a “safe place”!

  20. Barb & Maggie
    12:47 pm on March 21st, 2011

    Bear, Barb would buy the tomotoes already started if she didn’t favor the rare heirlooms. Most of the plants on the market are the F-1 Hybrids, which she doesn’t think taste as good. Lately, some of the more common heirlooms have become available, like Brandywine annd a few others. Some you just have to start from seed if you want them. Barb is obsessive about her tomatoes, as everyone knows.

  21. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:47 pm on March 21st, 2011

    Impression!… Maybe Admin is getting braces…snort! … When my friend was young she had to get those gagging impressions so they could put braces on all her teeth….gah! ….This was one of the really low points in her life. Every month there was that excruciating pain when the Ortho tightened them up….grunt!

  22. Barb & Maggie
    1:14 pm on March 21st, 2011

    One of Barb’s English Shepherd breeder friends has a dog who’s formal name is Latte something-or-other. “Latte” segwayed into a nick name of Tater (which we are not fond of). Anyway, Tater became a mom yesterday, and her puppies are being called Tater Tots. Isn’t that sooo cute?

  23. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:14 pm on March 21st, 2011

    Barb!… You said you have 27 tomato plants. That will produce a ton of tomatoes won’t it?…snort!…Do you sell them or can them? I don’t think anyone could eat that many in one season….yeep!

    1:57 pm on March 21st, 2011

    Rio, We only plant 9. The rest we give away. We have 4 raised beds, so space is limited. One 8 x 8 bed is enough room for 3 rows of 3 plants. Barb used to can and she said it made her feel like a pioneer woman, but it is a lot of work to do by yourself.

    We have been watching a live camera at an eagle nest in Decorah, IA. It soulds like the eggs are hatching, as we heard lots of chirping. Here is the link: You will have to type it in, because we don’t know how to create a link.

  26. BearSpiritDog
    2:12 pm on March 21st, 2011

    Barb! You do know how to create a link – it worked! Thanks for the info on different kinds of tomatoes. We are very particular about taste ourselves. The name Tater Tots so cute!

    That is a good point, Dawson! We will remember to remember (I hope)

    Hey! What’s this? Something about Prime Rib? A great celebration at:

    Hi, everybody! We’ve been reading daily, but usually too late to converse with y’all. Spring has sprung here (highs in low 80’s) and we LOVE daylight savings time!! It gives Mom and Dad time to be outdoors after work in sunlight. Who cares if they have to drive to work in the semi dark?

    We have been having good laughs with Natasha’s reports to the Home Office. She must really be a super spy to have figured out what she has so far!

    Keep writing, y’all, so we can keep reading!

    Iditarod Banquet: All the mushers were off the trail and at the banquet. What a feast. Congratulations to all. The story of the last two mushers (further down BearSpiritDogs link) was very moving.
    I’m going to put my Safe Place Journal with my Chet and Bernie books. 🙂 I will never lose it.

    Soooooo, Zoë’s doctor was not in today and someone told Zoë she wasn’t taking appointments until after the 29th. I went to PT during a snow storm. 4 1/2 inches so far. It’s supposed to turn to rain. Waiting for that.

    After PT I talked to the Royal’s mum about the doctor, but turns out she was seeing that doctor on Wednesday. . . Hmmm. I tried calling home to tell them I was going to be making an appointment for Zoë tomorrow, but the phone was either in use or off the hook.

    Came home to find Dan’s PT person having to help Zoë out of the bathtub. How she got it in is a mystery to me. Dan had left the phone off the hook for 2 1/2 hours. I called her doctor and EXPLAINED that she was going to have an appointment tomorrow.

    Then I started supper, did the dog dishes, and burst into tears. Doing better now, but I’ve got to have some catharsis sometime or I would spontaneously burst into flame and have to have the X-Files come in.

    Good to read all the normal things . . .

    Melanie!… I wish my friend would just have a good cry, maybe she would feel better too…snuffle! … I ‘ll show her your post when she gets home from the terribly -uninteresting –place tonight…grunt!

  32. B.Stover
    4:03 pm on March 21st, 2011

    Melanie: You need to get regular help I think for Dan and Zoe. (I know Jesse does things around the house but you need someone familiar with nursing it seems to me.) Does anyone here have any ideas?

    Rio: Tell your friend that The Event is on tonight. I still have two episodes to catch up on. (Even better, Castle is on also.) I’ve been thinking of ways to get rid of depression. In the past I’ve done creative work which seems to do the trick for me. Physical exertion doesn’t do it. How about writing a story. In other words, write it all out.

    Bear: To heck with prime rib….king crab was on the menu!! Thank you for the link.

    G&BB: Good to hear from you.

    4:05 pm on March 21st, 2011

    Melanie, You poor dear. If we lived closer, Barb would zip over and help you out. Maybe Wolfie could blur her over to your house.

    Rio, Did your friend come to that important decision that you mentioned the other day? Is it a secret, or did we miss something by just reading every other word?

  34. Wölfie
    4:06 pm on March 21st, 2011

    We had a big snowstorm here last night and power is out. So, the banks are closed, as is the post office and all the stores. We have a generator here so we are plugging away.

    Melanie, you have had a lot to deal with and it just never ends. Not to mention your own health issues. I am pulling for you. And for Rio’s friends also.

  35. B.Stover

  36. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:11 pm on March 21st, 2011

    Melanie!….I think Mel has a lot more to deal with than my friend does…sniff!… I think she should just buck-up and take a good look at what Melanie is dealing with and count her lucky stars…grunt!… I mean she has me, right?….gruff!

  37. Melanie
    4:12 pm on March 21st, 2011

    Thanks all.
    I’m going in with Zoë tomorrow. We need to figure something out. I can’t keep doing this and not get sick.

    The Eagle cam is REALLY cool. Three eggs, though one looks smaller than the others.

    4:15 pm on March 21st, 2011

    Melanie, On a more serious note, Bee is right, you are trying to do too much, and you are still not 100% yourself. It would be hard enough without 9 humongo dogs.

    Would Medicare cover any at-home care? Do either of them have a Long Term Care policy? Many of those pay a $$ amount for home services to cover some of the ADLs (Activities of Daily Living). There are also small private health care services that will send in a person to help out, on an hourly basis. They usually run about $20 per hour with a 3 or 4 hour min. You probably don’t need a skilled nurse, just someone to take some of your work load. Worth checking out your options.

  39. dawson
    4:18 pm on March 21st, 2011

    Melanie: You are all just plain worn out! You need a “go to” person that lives in. You have too many responsibilities and not enough healthy hands. Things are never “normal” long enough for you guys to heal properly.
    Rio: I’m very good at crying. I recommend it as long as you don’t get carried away.

  40. Siber-H
    4:30 pm on March 21st, 2011

    Melanie, my idea is the same as Stover’s…you could use some help with Dan and Zoe…maybe only part time. You just cannot do it all yourself. Mom speaks from experience and knows what you are going through.
    Mom also has experienced the phone being accidentally left off the hook with senior citizens…her own parents included. She had to drive 60 miles one-way once to find out why the phone line was busy for hours.
    We wish some of us were closer to you to help out.

    4:42 pm on March 21st, 2011

    The eagle cam had almost 9700 live viewers when we looked at it a few minutes ago. We thought they were hatching around the 1st, but it sounds like chirping. Maybe there is another bird making some noise near the speaker.
    Melanie, You commented on the smaller egg. We read that the female eaglettes are bigger, and that if a female hatches out first, she will often kill her brother. The parents do nothing to stop the fraticide. We do NOT want to watch that!

  42. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:07 pm on March 21st, 2011

    MagPie!….Do they wait for their little brother to hatch before they kill him?….snort!… Or do they peck the shell off him and then kill him….yeep!….Those are some mean little peckers!…sniff!

    5:28 pm on March 21st, 2011

    Rio, From what we read, the eaglettes sometimes hatch a couple of days apart. Generally there will be 3 eggs, with 2 hatching. If the first one out is a female, and the 2nd is a male, she sometimes kills the smaller hatchling after he hatches. Not very nice. Wonder why? Since eagles take one mate, it is not a question of needing fewer males and more females. For instance, with chickens, 1 rooster can “service” 10 hens, without even getting out of breath!

  44. Melanie
    5:50 pm on March 21st, 2011

    Goodness, I hope no younguns are watching that!

  45. Melanie
    5:51 pm on March 21st, 2011

    Either one actually, the eagles or the chickens.
    Though our side yard occasionally acts as the eduation channel.

    5:57 pm on March 21st, 2011

    We learned about the eagle cam thru the local grade school, where all the kids are watching it. Hope they don’t witness that either! Yikes!

    B. Stover and Kirby: I have been teaching so many years that I don’t know why I get stressed about it. I, too, have those back-to-school nightmares that usually start the last three weeks of summer. This year I developed stomach problems that lasted until almost November. I spent $600 out-of-pocket on tests and never did find the cause. It was probably stress about work but w-h-y ? People like me, the principal likes me, I’m best friends with the Adm. Secretary–I should not be stressed.

    P.S. I remember that one year a teacher came in and within the first week she had alienated the secretary, the librarian and the janitor. You can’t do that and survive in a school environment–they hold key positions and can save your fanny many times over!

  48. Melanie
    7:20 pm on March 21st, 2011

    I remember one of my anxiety dreams I had when I taught.
    All the students had boom-boxes (yes, that dates me) and they wouldn’t turn them off, just up. I got so angry that I started throwing them (not the students) out the window. Old school, large windows.
    Then I woke up.
    Had that for years.
    Occasionally still have the one where I find out I was taking a class, was having a final and I hadn’t been in the class the whole year.

He has come so far since then, although, we have never and probably will never experience his Kill Bill series….snuff!

    Dawson, We are half watching Chicago Code, then going to watch Harry’s Law. We like Kathy Bates.

    Rio, we logged on to the eagle link and could see the eagle resting with her/his head under the wing. There won’t be any activity, I wouldn’t think, till tomorrow morning. I don’t think the eggs are ready to hatch yet. I think the chirping we heard might have been other birds. You may have to wait a few days to see if murder occurs.

    Hi Rio,
    I have been napping in one of the fabric recycling bags that Staff uses when they go on trips. It is lovely and warm in there and Alice M. Johnson can’t see me. Staff left the computer on and went to another room so I get some typing time. I am rattling on because I don’t want you to accuse me of a one word post.

    What did you have for dinner tonight? Staff had soup. We get ‘hot lunch’ which is our dry food with a tiny bit of hot water on it to make gravy. We love it.

    Oops she is coming back.
    (Hi to all the other kats on the blog)

    Goodnight all. I have to take some pills and get ready for tomorrow. You all take care now. Eat your iron! (you know as a quilter that is a strange thing to see written.)
    See you tomorrow.

    We are probably goin to shut down for the night. We are getting some pretty bad lightening, so Barb thinks she should turn the computer off for now. Be back tomorrow bright and early. Sweet dreams!

    Hey, y’all! I’m here now, Rio! This is Mom’s late night at the library, and then she finally got the email with the “Amazing Grace” song, so my boy is helping Mom figure out how to post it on here. It involves a bunch of downloading and uploading and other stuff I’m not quite sure about. Anyway, it’s almost — but not quite — ready. Hopefully it’ll be good to go in a few mintues.

    I’ll listen to it tomorrow Kirby. Thank you for posting it.

    Good night all.

    Movies!…Cuz On Demand doesn’t seem to be updating weekly tv shows we are watching “Free Movies”…heh!…Did any of you guys ever see The Sting…snort!…So far so good. Robert Redford and Paul Newman and a lot of other really good actors too!…snorkel!…We will have to jump ship to our beds in about 30 minutes or so though…hmmphf!

    Rio: I’ve never seen it, but Mom says “The Sting” is a great movie — lots of twists and turns. She especially likes the music. All those Scott Joplin songs — quite catchy!

    Hi gang – it has indeed been the long day that we thought. Left home this morning in sunshine and came home two hours later through a slashing snowstorm on the highway that goes over the top of a mini-mountain. Gave a whole new meaning to the old song”she’ll be comin round the mountain” when we started doing 360’s down the side of the mountain road.
    Then it was time for staff meeting with Crazy Lady – we have to say, this woman is proof positive that Darwin was WRONG! Brings to mind all those old sayings we had as kids – dumb as a box of rocks, stupid as a screen door in a submarine, looney as a tune…anyone got any more?
    And then after closing the place down, MAma had to race to the phone store to get her new (ta da) iphone. Now if only she can figure out all the stuff that she needs to know for it. She is terrified that she is in danger of loosing her luddite status.
    And she is really worried about Melanie and company. She hopes that they will get some assistance, but understands that it is a really hard decision to come to. So, we are all saying our best prayers for all of them.
    We have an idea that we are playing with and we want to get all the details in line before we fill you all in. But tomorrow is going to be a long, late day too, so if may be a few days before we get a chance.
    So until then,
    Staff – eat your iron.
    Macy – keep making jokes
    Wookie – stay strong and get all completely well
    Abbie – box Alice’s ears if she bothers you in your bag
    Rio – we have heard that pugs sometimes express rather indelicate noises from their nether regions. Maybe if you could do that near your friend it would help cuz it for sure would make her eyes water. Then she could have that good healing cry and blame it on Rio.
    G’night all – hoping for a good day for everyone tomorrow!

    I loved The Sting, but then, I love anything with Paul Newman in it.
    Kirby T. I can’t wait to hear the handbell Amazing Grace. But like Stover, I will have to wait to hear it until tomorrow.
    B.Stover: Why do you want Beckett to cut her hair?
    Good night All

    Kirby!…The Sting – First time for me. She says it’s another classic….grunt!.., That last ‘classic’ we just watched wasn’t my cup of tea…snuff!…We will have to finish this one tomorrow night some time….grunt!…Up for a while yet but she’s determined to go to bed early to be able to do nothing important all day long tomorrow ….((sigh)).

    OK, here it is…I think! My boy went to bed — guess he got tired of waiting for all the uploads/downloads to get finished — so Mom and I had to guess at the last part. If this doesn’t work, we’ll try again in the morning when my boy gets up!

    Oh, and if it does work, go easy on the handbell/chime players — they’re just a bunch of amateurs! The two flutes are ringers — friends of the church’s music director — and they’re really good!!122&authkey=gwCGRTpptHo%24

    11:53 pm on March 21st, 2011

    OK, so that doesn’t seem to have worked — at least I can’t get to it from there. I guess Mom isn’t as technologically savvy as I thought she was. Sorry, we’ll try again in the morning with my boy’s help!

    OK, try this one. My boy isn’t up yet, but Mom figured this one out all by herself! Once you get to the site click on “download” and “open.” WARNING: If your computer is as slow as mine (see: molasses), go take a shower or something! It took me about 10 minutes for it to open up — the song itself is about five mintues long.!122&authkey=gwCGRTpptHo%24

    Still not working. We’ll have to wait for my boy after all!

    OK. My boy says the url was too long, whatever that means. So he made it shorter. So this time it should work. Boy, I sure hope all this was worth it!!!

  85. Kirby T. Penworthy
    7:09 am on March 22nd, 2011

    OK, so now it looks like you have to have an MSN account to do this. If you can’t get into it let me know, and my boy said he could try something else later. Sheesh! What’s that word Melanie uses? Knifflebits?!
