No Post Today

Why not? It looks like they’ve all gone to the beach. And at certain times of the year there are rules about me and my kind at the beach. Rules? Let’s not even go there. Bernie likes when Butch Cassidy says, “There are no rules in a knife fight.” Once Bernie even said it himself. The perp gave up right away. Bernie knows how to put things.

I feel a spell of gnawing coming on.

Welcome two pals, namely Cooper and Sparky.

    Try not to gnaw on too much while you’re there by yourself!

    I can’t believe my brain went dead just before W-L came on! *&%$%&*(())&

    I hope Barb and MagPie got some sleep.

    Good Morning Everyone!

    Well, I think they should take you to the beach with them Chet. It would be more fun with you there especially if you had an orange frisbee! Rules are for breaking.

    Good morning all.

    B.Stover! Amen. (to the rules are for breaking.)
    Good morning…and I’m off.
    I saved just a little bit of ARC to read after work. Bliss.

    Cover!… I wonder if Dawson can tell us all whether the cover makes sense after she has read the book…grunt!

    Beaches!… Since when does Bernie go to the beach?…sniff! …Sounds like a cover-up to me…snort!

    Hi Whitey-Lance!

    Can we talk privately?

    Excuse us, everyone.

    (whispering fiercely) Listen, Buddy, I’m just going to tell you straight up: I Heart Sam. I know, I know, You escorted her to the Wedding and not Me, because I was with Nattie, but that thing with Nattie was a passing fancy. Really. Well, not really, because she is so very Hot!

    Plus she likes Jack from the dog park.

    Okay, pal, glad we had this little talk and cleared the air.

    Abbie is unhappy this morning. She wants to be up on the ironing board but can’t jump that high. Life is a trial for a fluffy kat. Yesterday I put her up there but this morning I cleared off the stool that will get her half way.
    I wonder…well she figured that out fast. (To my surprise) Now she is testing my quilt fabric.

    I don’t suppose the Wookster lays on ironing boards?

    Nah, doubt it greatly.

    Setting up for the TOGA tomorrow and then the Fireworks Finale tonight.

    I’m going to see this tomorrow! My ME nephew bought tickets for my sister’s BD!

    “In this live interactive event, the baker and star of TLC’s Cake Boss will share the stories behind his hit TV series and his colorful Italian family, answer audience questions and give a live demonstration of the techniques that have made him one of the most successful and renowned cake artists in the nation. Buddy will even invite audience members to join the fun on stage. The whole family is invited for a night of “bakin’ with the boss” one will not soon forget.”

    Forgot to put up a picture of OTAS working at his computer.
    This is from my vacation.

    Princess Sam! What a popular girl you’ve become!

    B&M: That is a fine state of affairs! A snafu in the electrical system just before today’s showing. Not to mention the lack of sleep. Another example of Murphy’s Law in action.

    Melanie: I’ll post a pic of the infamous Trigger later today or early tomorrow.

    Memo to Staff (from Wookie’s dad): You are definitely right, Wooks does not perch on ironing boards. The thought of it almost boggles the mind though. However, when we first got him as a relatively young pup (9 months or so), he had this incredible vertical leap and on a couple of occasions basically jumped up on the dining room table from a standing position. Not looking for food or anything, but just because he could. Fortunately, the habit died quickly. We now refer to that as his table dancing phase.

  13. Barb & Maggie
    11:28 am on August 12th, 2011

    Good morning, gang, and a fine sleepy morning it is!

    SIL gave Barb some suggestions, but she is a dunce when it comes to electrical, soooo at 3:00 she finallg got up and disconnected several of those little bastards so we could get some sleep.

    7:30 this morning the electrician called, and told her to try this and that. She said to hell with it, get over here NOW, I don’t care about a service charge!

    Now it is blissfully, blessedly QUIET! And 2 hours to go before the showing.

    The Crazy Lady broker asked Barb if she was taking me away for the showing, and Barb said she might just take me out in the yard. There was a long pause, then she asked if I would be on leash. Barb said yes, then she asked if I would bark at the people. Barb told her I like MOST people. Think she missed the point. She is the only person I ever wanted to bite. That should tell you something! BBL

    Table-Dancing!….Little does the Wooster’s Dad know, but Wookie still has his incredible vertical leaping ability …snort!…It has saved his fur many a time when he’s been out on secret missions.….chorkel! …Remember that time he was hanging by his tail in Spencer’s office?….sniff!…How do you think he got up there anyways?…heh!

  15. Barb & Maggie
    11:30 am on August 12th, 2011

    Wookie, I used to do that vertical bounce too. Barb called it boinging. I could reach nose height on an adult! Now that I am 2 I am more refined.

    11:36 am on August 12th, 2011

    The no dogs allowed on the beach rule doesn’t hurt my feelings, but it isn’t fair to Chet and other dogs that like the beach.

    I’m looking forward to a picture of Trigger…what a guy!
    For what it is worth, mom thinks his name is “adorable”.

    Barb and Maggie, How are you?

  17. B.Stover
    11:36 am on August 12th, 2011

    Wolfie: I’m laughing also!

  18. Siber-H
    11:39 am on August 12th, 2011

    Barb, glad you got the problem solved. In two different houses my folks got sick of messing with the electrical alarms and replaced them with battery only ones.

  19. Melanie
    11:44 am on August 12th, 2011

    Yea! We get to see Trigger!

    When Gracie was 7 months (around 80 pounds) she decided to jump on the counter to get in the sink. She did not fit, but it was a valiant effort!

    She did fit all four feet in and balanced.

    Now she is like the others and just counter surfs.

    Wölfie! Yes, I’m looking forward to it!

  20. Melanie
    11:44 am on August 12th, 2011

    Barb and MagPie, did you get any sleep before 3 am?

  21. Barb & Maggie
    11:46 am on August 12th, 2011

    Siber, I would do that too, but then we would have those wires hanging from the ceilings.

    Barb is tired, but at least the problem is behind us. Gotta get ready for the showing. Keep fingers and paws crossed.

  22. Barb & Maggie
    11:48 am on August 12th, 2011

    Melanie, Batrb described her sleep as fitful. She has to work this afternoon, too. She will be falling asleep at her desk!

    Now, really gotta go.

  23. Melanie
    12:46 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Fingers, toes, tail, paws and claws all crossed!

    Melanie: I think that covers it!

    Beaches!… And another thing about those guys going to the beach that bugs me…grunt!…Why would they go on a day when Chet or Audrey would not be allowed?…sniff!…This does not make any sense to me. Although, I wouldn’t be caught dead on a beach. All that sand gets into places you really don’t want sand to get into…wheeze!

  26. Staff
    2:07 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Love all the stories of counter jumps! I think it is wise of Wookie to hide some of his abilities from his Dad. Then he won’t get blamed when S*** happens. 🙂

    Off to the quilt shop for a while and then fireworks tonight. The forecast is 60% chance of severe thunderstorms. I will cross my fingers and toes for Maggie and Barb if they will cross theirs for me.

  27. B.Stover
    2:07 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Rio: LOL! Of course, water would remove the sand….

  28. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:37 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Water!… There’s another reason not to go to the beach…grunt!

  29. Siber-H
    2:42 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Is someone going to make an announcement that they have come up with a new way to raise money for Snowhook?

  30. Mollypop
    2:44 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Liz – I just read in our local paper that some of the bowhunters here have come all the way from Australia!

    3:09 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Well, we are back for a second. Showing went well, but was rather quick. Story is, very nice lady, has 3 dogs, Chicago area teacher, boy friend is a cop, mid to late 30’s, probably no kids. Looking for a place for weekends and time off that would be relaxing and quiet. She took lots of pictures, and said she loved the decorating. Think she is doing the preliminary search, and then bringing the guy back to see the ones she likes. Good chance they will come back for another look-see.

  32. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:24 pm on August 12th, 2011

    SiberH!… Thanks for reminding me…grunt!… I was busy snuffling around outside and forgot all about that fund raising business…heh!… As you all know, we cannot and will not be having a Pre-Christmas Auction due to unforeseen pre-emptive actions on the part of TMG….grunt!… So some other ideas have surfaced that are not an Auction. Here they are. If you guys like the them please grunt once for “Yes”, twice for “No” or vice versa…sniff!

    1. Snowhook has a link on their page to the Musher Mercantile Store. I propose we use this Store to sell our donated Items. It will be like the Auction but not really. Rebecca already has a Pay Pal set up over there. More details will be hammered out if this idea is accepted by the Plunderers.

    2. Booties! We need volunteers to help Rebecca and AJ out with the sewing of millions of booties. Maybe a few less than that, but I don’t think by much… snort! … We need someone to volunteer to coordinate this big sewing circle. This volunteer will gather information from Rebecca regarding the booties in question. This volunteer will also be in charge of everyone on the sewing circle making sure they actually sew the amount of booties they say they will…heh! …or ELSE!

    3. Cookbook! If and when it is ever finished, should we put this up for sale at The Store? We would all get a free copy of course.

  33. Macy the Min-pin
    3:37 pm on August 12th, 2011

    I TOLD you it was hot here!

  34. B.Stover
    3:51 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Macy: That’s funny…but isn’t, if you see what I mean.

    Rio: I would agree to number 3–selling the cookbook.

  35. Masquers
    3:59 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Rio: I vote for number 1 (one meow)
    That is if we can only use one idea.
    They are all good. Unfortunately two
    is out for me. No sewing skills here.

  36. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:00 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Stover!…What about number 1 and 2?….sniff!

  37. Tyb
    4:00 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Thanks for the tip about the apostrophe last night. I got busy and didn’t get another chance to repost. Today I’m working and Mollypop’s mom stopped and mentioned the apostrophe also. So here goes; I’m trying again.

  38. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:01 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Maskers!…All three ideas can be used all at the same time…heh!…Or not.

  39. Masquers
    4:07 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Trigger checks out an early morning visitor

  40. Masquers
    4:09 pm on August 12th, 2011

    TYB: That is a very Kool bowl!

  41. B.Stover
    4:15 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Rio: I can’t do number 2 because school is starting and I have to do prep so I won’t have time; also, I hate sewing. Number 1 is okay but I don’t know if the two items I was going to put in an auction would be of interest to people on the Snowhook blog. The items are a bound copy of my blog and a book–The Complete Chronicles of Narnia with ilustrations by Pauline Baynes. That book is 8-l/2 x 11 inches with 524 pages.

  42. Rose
    4:17 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Rio: Grunting for # 1. Like Masquers, I too, have not sewing skills. I’ll also grunt for # 2.

  43. Masquers
    4:21 pm on August 12th, 2011

    For Barb & Magpie

  44. Masquers
    4:25 pm on August 12th, 2011

    B! The Illustrated Complete Chronicles of Narnia would be a winner, as would the bound copy of your blog. I say go for it!

  45. Siber-H
    4:33 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Rio, I can’t sew, mom can’t sew, but she said we could donate money toward the fabric and velcro needed to make the booties.

    We are all for all three of the suggestions. Whatever you guys think will work.

  46. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:40 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Booties!… Rebecca said they had 300 usable booties from last year…snort!…I’m not sure how many they go through during the Big Race…sniff!…I bet it is more than 300 though. Maybe she will let us know when she gets on the blog…grunt!

  47. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:45 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Items!… I don’t think the donated items for the Store have to necessarily do with sled dog racing or be of interest to just dog sled racers…heh!… I was thinking more along the line of things that would be great Christmas gifts for all sorts of different interests….grunt!

  48. Siber-H
    4:46 pm on August 12th, 2011

    I have read that one set of booties might be good for 100 miles. Rebecca will know more.

  49. Siber-H
    4:51 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Items for Christmas gifts is an excellent idea.

    Masquers, If Trigger had one white ear and they both stood up, he would look just like Chet on the cover of all the books up to now. He has the coloring more or less that we picture Chet having and the hair length.

  50. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    5:39 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Barb’s story reminds me of mom smoke detector story. A while back, our smoke detector went off.

    Lordy, was it loud!

    So mom and dad ran around the house, shutting off all the smoke detectors. First they poked them with the broom handle! And then dad got the ladder and took out all the batteries!


    I ran and hid my head but it was still loud!

    Dad said some unmentionable words.

    Then he went outside and turned off the main breaker to the house.


    Now what? Why didn’t the noise stop?

    And then they looked at the couch. They had this mat on the new couch that screamed whenever a kat or a dog sat on it. It had folded over on itself and that is what was making all that racket.

    Serves them right. Everyone knows that dogs and Kats need to be on the couch in order to get a proper rest.

  51. B.Stover
    5:58 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Okay. I can participate in numbers 1 and 3.

  52. Mollypop
    6:19 pm on August 12th, 2011

    I can participate in #1, I can’t in #2, and I think #3 in Snowhook’s Musher Store is a good idea.

    Siber-H – You are so right on about the back of Trigger’s head looking like Chet.

  53. Melanie
    6:52 pm on August 12th, 2011

    I will think on Riö’s ideas tomorrow. Because, yes it has, my brain has left again.
    I received pictures from the Royals’ Mum. And I’m going to put them up . . .

    This is the The Leather Dress.

    Oh, snigglefritz! MollyPop! Why are the pictures sideways when I’m loading them? How can I change that because they are correct on my computer?????

  54. Mollypop
    7:06 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Melanie – Does your computer software automatically straighten pictures? Can you copy a picture to your desktop to see what it really looks like?

  55. Melanie
    7:12 pm on August 12th, 2011

    MollyPop, please check SDD.

  56. Jasper the Poodle
    7:16 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Huh! Mom comes home with a smart phone. She’s still trying to figure it out.

  57. Mollypop
    7:38 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Leather dress – testing.

  58. dawson
    7:38 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Rio: I can participate in #1, no talent in #2, and yes to #3.
    Yes, the picture on the front of the book makes sense. Except that the dog on the cover should look more like Trigger or BearSpiritDog.

  59. Melanie
    7:40 pm on August 12th, 2011

    MollyPop, should I send you the others?

  60. Mollypop
    7:42 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Jasper – Be careful and keep an eye on Mom. She may load an app called Dog Toy Prank. Keep ear plugs handy just in case.

  61. Mollypop
    7:43 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Melanie – send away!

  62. Barb & Maggie
    7:47 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Masquers, Thanks for the pic. That is how one of us is going to look if we don’t get some sleep tonight! Barb said she kept nodding off today when she was at the office for 3 hours.

    When the 2 gals came to look at the house, the teacher asked if I waas friendly, then was petting me, but when I went up to the real estate lady she looked a little nervous and stepped back a little. When Barb asked if she was afraid of dogs she said no, so we think that rotten hag that Barb works for told her to watch out for me because I am vicious. I should have bitten her when I had the chance!

    Molly, what is the story on that beautiful dress? I know, we will be in trouble with Rio if we missed reading something. Also be careful wearing that around those crazy bow hunters.

  63. Melanie
    7:50 pm on August 12th, 2011

    MollyPop, now they are working . . . Must be a brain skip.

  64. Mollypop
    7:51 pm on August 12th, 2011

    MagPie! At 6:52, Melanie was having trouble loading the pictures from the Royals’ Mum. Melanie will send me more and she or the Royals’ Mum can give the descriptions.

    We have a special DOGS ONLY beach here in Maryland. Humans are allowed on only in the company of their fur kids! It is lots of fun and since it is on a tidal river there are not waves that can be a little frightening for Wookie. He used to love to go there for a romp on the dunes and a swim with his friends. A little too far to walk now but ah, those were the days!

  70. Debbie LM
    7:57 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Does anyone know where there is a pattern for the booties that we might see before committing to any sewing? Also, what materials are used to construct the booties?

  71. Melanie
    7:57 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Whew, that’s it folks, and I give up! Going to watch Inspector Lewis . . .

    Thank you Melanie and T&G’s mom for the photos They are beautiful!!
    They are true Artists.
    I hope that culture and art will live forever in our country. It must never be lost to history.

  73. Kirby T. Penworthy
    8:49 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Hey, y’all! Mom was up real late last night — or maybe I should say early this morning — so I’m not sure how long she’ll let me hang out here tonight. She says she’s no spring chicken, so she can’t keep this up. I’d say not! She has two legs, just like a chicken, but there the resemblance ends! No way would Maggie let her in the henhouse!!!

  74. Barb & Maggie
    8:56 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Melanie, Thank you for posting those. Absolutely breathtaking!

  75. Masquers
    9:06 pm on August 12th, 2011

    The art photos are wonderful!
    Thank you Royal Mum & Leonard
    Melanie and Mollypop! We are
    now calling it a day and
    hitting the hay!

  76. Kirby T. Penworthy
    9:16 pm on August 12th, 2011

    T&G: Mom and I thought your mom is the artist in the family, but obviously your dad is right up there with her. They both do really, really, really good work!

    Macy: One of Mom’s friends drives an ice cream truck, so she was worried at first that he had melted into the truck. But then we realized that that wasn’t his. Phew! Mom was afraid she wouldn’t be able to flag him down for ice cream anymore!

    Rio: Mom says we’ll go along with whatever shenanigans you come up with. We can figure out some kind of donation for No. 1. As for No. 2, she can sew, but it’s not her forte, whatever that is. And I’m all paws when it comes to that silly sewing contraption. But if Snowhook needs booties, we’ll give it our best! And when it comes to No. 3, I say sell the heck out of it! Mom says she’d be happy to buy one for Grandma for Christmas. I don’t much care about the cookbook, I just want someone to make me some of the food in there!!!

  77. Macy the Min-pin
    9:17 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Dad is in DC

    Mom is poodled up today

    I think we need hugs.

  78. Kirby T. Penworthy
    9:23 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Macy: Where’s Mr. Redbone when you need him? I’m sure he’d be happy to give you alot(!) of hugs!!! But in his absence, I’m happy to give you some hugs. Just platonic of course! I wouldn’t want to make Mr. Redbone jealous!!! Is your Mom poodled up because she’s sore or lonely — or both?! I think you need to share some of your hugs with her!!!

  79. Siber-H
    9:32 pm on August 12th, 2011

    Husky Hugs and non-slobbery kisses going out especially for Macy and her mom.
    Maybe Redbone will show up soon.

    Mom is poodled up because the women where she volunteers told her that she needed to help with the lifting, even though she has a doc note. Then one said that she wouldn’t bother to come if she could not do the job. This after 4 straight months of Fridays, and an hour and a half of sorting stuff that no one wanted to do.

    AND the O key has broken off our laptop and messed up the p as well, so our typing speed is way down.

    *sigh* only seven days ’till dad comes home.

    Hmmm!…So much for only speaking in Haiku!…grunt!…Sounds like someone is getting a bum-rap at the volunteer place!…snort!… I’d tell that “one” lady to shove her opinions where the sun doesn’t shine Ever and keep it there…heh!

    Cook!… Is off the mound….snort!…Maybe we still have a chance to win this game…grunt!… Aaron Cook S-U-C-K-S as a pitcher…sniff!…I’m sure he is an awfully nice guy though…wuffle!

    I keep thinking (hoping) that Cook will improve. sigh

    We looked up how many miles a 5k is. It is 3.107 miles.

    Macy, I’m with Rio on what to tell the volunteer ladies. Their treatment of your mom is really rude and juvenile and something must be sadly lacking in their lives.

    Why does all the Snowhook happenings happen when I’m not on the blog? Musher’s Mercantile, Fancy Footwear Force and the cookbook are all wonderful ideas and much appreciated. I really can’t thank the Plunderers enough for all the support, and especially after recently finishing the auction.

    We plan for approximately 2,000 to 2,500 booties per race season; last year was a little lean in the bootie department and AJ finished the race with just one more set of extra booties for each dog that crossed the finish line. Booties are made of specific material that I will have to special order; for those willing to help with the booties, I can mail you a bootie from last year as a reference for size and design.

    Wolfie: Oh, dear, oh, dear. I received a distressed call from Whitey today. He was worried that you are upset with him because of his affections for Sam. He is equally worried that the wonderfluffed Princess herself won’t know that he is sweet on her if he, umm, steps aside. A girl like Sam is bound to have many suitors—it’s just a fact, and such a girl might need the benefit of two escorts at future Plundering events.

    Melanie: I will let you know if it looks like the patch will fit on the Stormy Kromer hat once we receive the patches. A girl must have a good hat…

    Macy: I echo the ‘sun don’t shine’ sentiment so eloquently stated by Rio. I also throw hugs from Snowhook into the mix.

    (whispering) I am so excited. Tomorrow is AJ’s birthday and I was able to get him a birthday present that I know he will love. His MP3 player kicked the bucket—DEAD a couple of weeks ago; he didn’t come out and say it, yet I watched him look at those fancy MP3 players each time we were at the store. Enter my secret stash of leftover laundry money and gift cards I’ve been given over the course of the last several months—all that added together and I only had to dip into our checking account for a small amount. I can’t wait to surprise him!

    My dear Miz Macy
    I’m ahangin my head in shame for neglecting you so turrible bad. Ma Hound would jest be furious with me and would tell me that she raised me to be a southern gentleman, not some Yankee hooligan.
    So please ma’am- tell thIs ole hound you forgive him for bein too busy
    You can call on me for hugs, strictly NOT platonic, any time you want some.
    Now, don’t you fret that purty little head of yourn about them old nasty volunteers… You trust me when I say that they ain’t no ladies! (apologies Miz B- that’s jest the way we talk down here). Your mom is one fine lady to do all that she has done and she should tell them old warthogs to “kiss her grits”!
    Forever your own

    Why thank you kindly Miz Rebecca. Shure do hope Miz Macy will look kindly on it. She is jest the sweetest little ole gal I ever took to the submarine races, and I do adore her sassy little ways.
    Now on the other subjects of the day – fraid this old dog aint’ much with a sewing machine, but I would sure nuf be happy to donate something to that there Mercantile, and I will let all the kinfolk know that they should be supporting your efforts and buying up them cookbooks. Trust me, my Ant SallyLou could shure use a good cookin’ book. That woman could ruin the taste of a can of beans, jest by opening the lid! I shudder ever time she invites the fambly for Sunday dinner. The things she does to a roasting chicken should not be allowed by law. I do think I would rather have chicken the way Siber fixes it. And don’t get me started about her gravy….unless you have a road that needs paving. Those lumps could fill all the potholes in the AlCan highway and still have some leftover to fill in the glaciers that are meltin.
    This is the onliest woman I ever knew who could muck up a box of jello so bad that the company president hisself called her to ask her to please never tell anyone she used their product.
    That old rumor about every Southern woman being a great cook – well it jest ain’t so. You jest ask Uncle RayJim and their children – skinniest bunch of people you ever would see. Why, ifn’ you turn RayJim sideways, and tell him to stick out his tongue, he looks jest like a zipper!

    Oh, Redbone, it is good to see you on the blog tonight! To quote your Macy on those ocassions she takes to the dark side, “Giggle.”

    Wolfie: I love giving gifts and surprise gifts are my favorite! Last year I received a holiday bonus from work and went to a store that sold AJ his mushing parka straight away. I was able to put my bonus and another gift card I recieved and buy him the bibs he wore during the Iditarod. I was so excited for Christmas morning I couldn’t wait—I woke him up at 2am so he could open his gift.

    Mollypop, i’m horrified that (a) there are bowhunters here and (b) they’ve gone over there. My apologies for them…

    Rebecca, i’ll send you the cookbook PDF tonight (my time). I’ll post some pics on here tomorrow morning (your time) to shut Rio up.

    Well ladies, and Brother Wolfie,
    its time for this old hound to haul hisself off to the porch for a good nights snooze. Them chickens get up awful early.

    Hey, where is everyone. Oh, that’s right, it’s 3:30 am in the morning. So why am I up at this time, you ask? Inquiring minds want to know. Well, there is this quilt store in nearby (or not so nearby) LaPlata, Maryland, that is having a special sale, 30% off everything in the store, excepting you need to get there between 3:00 am and 4:00 am to qualify for the full 30% discount. (Staff will understand, even if no one else will.). So off mom goes, dragging me and dad in tow as well. It’s a great quilt store, but she really does need to get a life anyhow. Dad at least brought a lot of good treats and he is sitting off in the corner reading Their Wildest Dreams by you-know-who. And they got a great Eagles CD blasting away in the quilt store to keep things lively and awake. Over for now, Wookie.
