    Good morning from show central. Last day of the “big”show. The art is wonderful, creative, inspiring and imaginative. Unfortunately, it is also mostly still here. We are praying for a great sales day for EVERYONE.
    And we are going to ask the show management to observe the 3 o’clock Moment of Silence that is observed around the country at major events. Even major league sports halt at 3.
    Hope you all have a glorious day in every way.

    Ooooo – bad karma for show organizers. We were told that an art show is no place to have a moment of silence since we “don’t want people to be sad; we want them to buy art”.
    Hmmm. Really makes us stop and think about the intentions and soul of these people.
    And we will hold our own moment of silence at 3.

    Greetings All!

    T&G, I don’t understand the problem with having a moment of silence. We should all be proud of our country, and give eternal thanks for all those who have served this country. Hope there are big sales for you today!

    T & G, they are so wrong. We will join you at 3:00 for a moment of silence.

    B&G: I think I owe you $5. I believe the price of the Dream Project is $5 more than Sing. Since you were so nice to trade with me, I don’t want to cheat you out of money.

    Good Morning Everyone!

    Deepest, heartfelt thanks to all our Veterans and those that are serving our country today.
    T&G, Glad you reminded us of the 3pm moment of silence.
    I’m keeping all paws crossed for big sales today at the art show.

    Tupper&Gilly: Yes, Bear agrees, bad karma for them. We will be joining your mama & dad in a moment of silence at 3 pm this afternoon.
    Wishing Golinka & the Storyteller a very Successful Day.

    On this Special Day we remember with Gratitude all those who serve and have served to protect our great country, both two-legged and four.

    Happy Memorial Day everyone. T&G, you are right, those conference folks seem fairly misguided in their approach to this very important holiday.

    B&M: We planted six tomato plants, five heirloom and one more standard. Mom ordered the heirlooms from White Flower Farm. Those are Cherokee Purple (two plants, because they were so yummy last year); Pierce’s Pride; Rose deBerne; and Bloody Butcher. We had planted Brandywines a lot in the past, but last year they did not turn out very well, so we tried some others this year. The non-heirloom is Sweet One Hundreds, which are yummy cherry-type tomatoes that mom just got from a local nursery. Because March was so hot here, we actually planted the heirlooms in mid-April, which was a lot earlier than in the past. The only one that was a bit slow at first was the Rose deBerne, but all are doing really good now. The Sweet one Hundreds was just planted last week, but it has a shorter gestation period anyway. Zuchinis have also been planted, some lettuces (yum Arugula and other stuff too), the standard crop of herbs, and voila! — some watermelon (this is just an experiment, so we will ser if they actually grow).

    That’s all for now, the folks are heading back to the porch for more cleaning.


  14. Barb & Maggie
    11:19 am on May 28th, 2012

    Wookie, We agree, Cherokee Purple is one of our favorites, but we couldn’t find it this year. Local place was sold out. So we got Black Krim and Black Sea Man to try instead. We grew some Bloody Butcher (can’t you just picture him?) last year, but it wasn’t our favorite for size or taste. Let us know what you think. A friend from Jefferson City, Mo. sent us seeds for German Giant and Pink Ponderosa which are both new for us. We got our plants in about a month after yours, so that excplains the size difference. We are going to Google those other two.

    That was a great story on the 11 animal heroes. Thank you for that.

    Rio! Thanks, pal…what a guy.

    Please take note: a kat is mentioned in that Amazing Animals story, along with horses, dolphins & others who have bravely served alongside our troops.

  16. Barb & Maggie
    11:37 am on May 28th, 2012

    Wookie, That Rose deBerne looks very interesting. Do you ever seed save? We would be interested in some of those if you do. When we Googled White Flower Farm we noticed that they also sell Paul Robeson. That is hands down our favorite tomato. Put it on your list to try next year, if you haven’t already grown it.

    Dawson, not sure if we commented last night, but the link for the onions that Staff put up is exactly the same as the onions we had. We eventually dug them out and started over because they were taking over!

  17. Staff
    12:11 pm on May 28th, 2012

    I placed my order. Rio will now have to make the final bouquet of flowers. Heh. I want them pink, teal, and cream. They will nicely go in the living room. I have the perfect vase.

    And I also ordered some of Linda the lurker’s pretzels. I am going to share them with my quilting buddies. I have had those pretzels before and they are yummy!

    And a hoodie! Zowwiieee. I hope it has a zipper down the front. Let me know Rebecca.

    I just had to refresh the hummingbird sugar water. I was ordering away on Snowhook and the hummer came to the door and hovered- staring in at me. I went out and checked the nectar and it was yucky. Had to clean and refill. Should be good to go now. Those hummers can be rather bossy. Snicker.

  18. Staff
    12:31 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Barb, Don’t dig them out and start over. Dig them out and eat them!

  19. BearSpiritDog
    12:46 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Staff & B&M: Wonder why that creepy type of onion was developed in the first place…seems one would require an entire patch for them to grow.
    Heh, heh. The little hummingbird has it made! A beautiful container for water and “Staff” to serve at its beck and call.

    With all this talk of tomatoes (which we Love) we may just try our hand at growing a few. Calling Wookie, Barb & all the gardeners out there, which variety do you recommend for a beginner?

  20. Barb & Maggie
    1:04 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Bear, We like the heirlooms better, but you need to stake them or use cages, as they get tall. They do not do well in patio pots. If you are going to grow one in a patio pot, the little cherry tomatoes do better as the plant is more compact. They need lots of sun, and a rich well drained soil. Another secret we have learned, plant them deep-several inches deeper than they are growing in their little pot. Makes for a sturdier plant.

    Barb just tried to use a credit card for an on line purchase and it was refused! She called Cap One and they said they put a hold on it due to “possible fraudlent activity”. This is the 2nd card in the last month. Small charges for a hotel in Kansas. Last one was a hotel in Mexico. Now she had to cancel the 2nd credit card and get a new one. How does this happen?

    Rio: Your friend’s quilling projects have officially sold out! I forgot to mention that a certain dog named after you is in the picture at the top of the MMSB. Snort!

    Golinka: Can you start charging the rude patrons for each rude comment? “That will be $20 for that comment, and another $5 for the eye roll. Tack on $50 for wasting out time and the total comes to $75. Thank you and have a nice day.”

    Thanks Rio. I didn’t even know what quilling was.

    3:07 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: Thanks for the tomato tips. It has only begun to warm up here so I guess it’s not too late to plant.

    Hi, Steve & Moe. How’s your Memorial Day going? No sun here in my neck of the woods, but I have high hopes for later this afternoon.

    Rio: What colors are being offered for the Bouquet? Five choices per dozen, right?
    Going through things looking for additional items for the MMSB.

    My silent thanks went forth.

    Finally back. Hmmm. Zoë had gotten her arrival time wrong. It was noon not 10:43 am. So I’ve been on the road all day. Passed several memorial services at local graveyards and two parades. Still managed to be on time for the wrong time.

    There is no Starbucks in Springfield. sigh.

    Had a book, read, texted GLAD. They had a great time camping. YSAS went to a birthday barbecue last night.

    Today? He’s going to an Italian BBQ at Hamlet’s mother’s house. I’m drooling.

    Zoe had a great time. She’s glad she doesn’t live in NYC. Missed the dogs.

    We stopped in to see Dan. He’s looking grand. Had his Navy Korea fight cap on. He looked go.

    It is now time to get a heating pad on my back and crash!

    Oh, got to find a link to something that Steve put on Facebook. Be back then I’ll crash.

    They had a moment of silence at the booth. They explained it to the two customers in the booth. The man removed his hat and all stood for a minute. Then the folks asked why the art show didn’t do the moment. And Mama told them….snicker.
    They have officially decided that this show is not for us. When people start asking Our Dad if the feathers on the bears are ones that HE wears when he is “in costume” – well, some people are too ignorant to even snap back at. But Mama was very, very bad. Another lady asked Dad why he wasn’t “in costume”. Mama gave her a full up and down look – (she wad wearing a very ugly, artsy fartsy outfit) and said she was very glad the lady had worn HER costume for the day. A couple people in the booth snickered, but Dad said Mama wasnt very nice. He’s right. She’s hot and tired and fed up.
    Especially since she didn’t get Rebecca’s suggestion til just now. She SHOULD have just said” that will be $75 please” and smiled.
    Oh well – theres always next time….oh wait….NO THERE ISN’T!
    we like all our other shows so much better.

    Hello Everybody!
    It is a very hot day again. Poor Ned and Annie had to go on a ride up in the hills, but they all enjoyed themselves. Then Mom and Pop’s riding friends came back here for a “Hunt Breakfast”. We wanted bacon…looked our cutest…really sucked up. But no go.
    We did a Moment of Silence with IAVA (Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America) at 12:01. Then we did a moment with youse guys at 3:00. Now we are back to chores. Then delicious pork chops from Caw Caw.
    Melanie, thanks for posting that inspiring video.
    Have a good day everyone!

    Melanie: Is this the one Steve shared on F/b? We started out here with sniffling, which then turned into full-out sobs. That was very inspiring. Loved his ninja outfit!

    Tupper&Gilly: Grrrrr! I cannot BELIEVE THE STUPIDITY OF SOME PEOPLE!!! Good thing the Plunderers weren’t around…we would have grabbed a pant leg or two and left some bite marks!

    Golinka!…Next time take me with you to the show and I will gnaw on the Rudes ankles with my jumbled teeth…heh!heh!

    Colors!…For youse guys who ordered the little bouquets you will have to send a SDD to my friend and let her know what colors you want….snort!…You can choose as many as 5 or as little as 1….heh!….But don’t tell her your colors out here on this blog because she will never remember what you want and then you will get all the colors she just wants to get rid of….chorkel!…Send the SDD’s to my email and she will eventually get them…heh!

  34. OleyHowlers
    3:41 pm on May 28th, 2012

    O.K., Bear. That picture definitely triggered some allergies around here.

  35. Barb & Maggie
    3:46 pm on May 28th, 2012

    We were not sure about the 3:00, so we did one at EST and will do one more at CST.

    Bear, We just planted out tomatoes 2 weeks ago and they are still selling them at the stores here. If you see any that you are thinking about ask us. Remember the ones with F behind the name are hybrids. The heirlooms are usually indiicated as such.

    Steve, glad to see you here today.

    Melanie, glad Zoe had a good time. Were there many in attendance?

  36. Barb & Maggie
    3:50 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Rio, Is is possible to special order the one about Love of an Old dog?

    Amalia, I bet you will be happy when your long weekend is over! Did you at least sell some pieces today” I loved the new mask that you did.

  37. Riö –The Evil Pug

    I, too, gave my silent thanks.

    Between the picture Bear posted, and the video Melanie posted, I have had a terrible allergy attack.

    4:48 pm on May 28th, 2012

    T&G My mouth dropped open when I read your post. GAH and for crying out loud. There are still people in this country that just arrived by alien spaceship yesterday. There is no other explanation.

    Bear, very nice photo. Melanie, thanks for the link to the video. sob, sob, sob

    Barb & Maggie: We have never seed saved for tomatoes before so we don’t really know how to do it. If you can tell us what to do, mom says we would be more than willing to give it a try.


  42. Barb & Maggie
    5:07 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Wookie, Thank you so much. It is a little bit of a process, takes a few steps to complete, but is Easy-Peasy. We will email you instructions later in the summer, because no one else is interested, I’m sure. We would be happy to exchange with you if you have any interest in trying your own. Although, unless you have a great spot is hard to grow plants as nice as the ones you can buy.

  43. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:38 pm on May 28th, 2012

    SiberH!…We’ve missed most of the game by being outside this afternoon…grunt!…then she had to whip up a meatloaf so it can bake in the outside oven…sniff!…I gave my silent thanks for that big ole meatloaf, let me tell ya!…Woooo!

  44. Melanie
    5:48 pm on May 28th, 2012

    I’m glad to see that I’m not the only one having allergy attacks. I told Steve how much that video meant to me.

    Just finished Masterpiece Theatre’s Agatha Christie “The Blue Geranium”. Neither Zoe nor I got the real murderer.

    Time for some dinner!

    Busy!…I told her everyone is busy this afternoon, but she wants me to ask if anyone has a favorite way of baking Cod…sniff!…She isn’t sure if she should try and put a crusty coating on it or not…snort!…Or just bake it plain and simple…wheeze!…Anyone?

  55. Snowhook Bella
    6:32 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Rio: I don’t think I’m the one to ask about how to make much of anything. SiberH, any cooking tips you want to offer?

  56. Siber-H
    6:33 pm on May 28th, 2012

    uh, Mom sometimes brushes it with butter and puts commercially made bread crumbs on it. Mom is not one to go to a lot of trouble.

    This is my second recipe ever on the blog. heh

  57. Siber-H
    6:34 pm on May 28th, 2012

    ha, Rebecca, see the above post.

  58. Snowhook Bella

  59. Melanie
    6:49 pm on May 28th, 2012

    I can’t eat fish so I don’t remember how to cook cod. I remember putting it into a fish chowdah once.

    Took Patsy down for a short swim to cool off. Franklin came with us. He acted just like a Puppy! The other dogs heard them and were really mad.

    The Pool should be opening soon(er or later)

  60. BearSpiritDog
    6:51 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Rio: Received your SDD. We’ll get back to you as soon as Someone here decides what colors she wants.
    If you want advice on cooking fish, best to ask a kat.

    Siber-H: Next thing we know you’ll be coming out with a cookbook. Snicker.
    (whispering) Great! Another victory, but we have a Catch 22. On one paw…the Rockies are winning, on the other paw..this is not good news for you. If you catch my drift.

  61. Siber-H
    6:53 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Or, for a healthier meal, brush the fish with olive oil and then put the bread crumbs on the top of it and bake it.
    My favorite way is this: Melt butter in the pan you are going to bake the fish in and then coat both sides of the fish in the melted butter. Place the fish in that pan with the remaining melted butter and coat the top of the fish with the bread crumbs and bake. Yum

  62. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:57 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Fishy!…I’ll pass along all these amazing tips…grunt!

  63. Barb & Maggie
    6:58 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Melanie, Wouldn’t fish be good for someone who is on a gluten free diet? Is it all fish? What about shrimp and lobster? You are missing some yummy stuff, girl.

    We don’t have any exception recipes for cod, sorry.

  64. Siber-H
    7:04 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Bear, The Rockies are still in next to last place. I’m not worried yet.

  65. B.Stover
    7:05 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Cod: Stir egg and dip the cod in the egg. Brush with cracker crumbs and fry in butter. Serve with lemon wedges.

    Hi Princess Sam! The beaver dam is gone! Hurricane Irene took it out when the river changed course. They are still around but I haven’t gone up the riverbank to find it yet.

    Hmm fish .. . well BSD, you see when they gave me a bunch of interferon I became allergic to a lot of things. Fish is one of them. It’s the oil. I can eat shellfish (thank Dog), but NOT fish.

    I’m going to say good night. Been a very long day . .

    This baseball game is just like this afternoon’s game. I cannot take this kind of stress.

    I hope Rio’s cod turned out delish.

    SiberH: Is there a couch cushion nearby you?

    Blou is up top right now. I hope Tyb and his pop are doing well. They seem to keep pretty busy.

    Rebecca, A chair cushion will do in a pinch.

    Rio? Are you watching this game?

    SiberH: I will keep that in mind for next race season.

    Rose, no need to worry about the $5.00 difference. It’s for Snowhook and I’m still getting a great item.

    Mom had to work today, but she snuck some time to look at OTAS and GLAD’s wedding pictures. She got about 2/3 of the way through then had to stop. What a beautiful, beautiful wedding. Glad she doesn’t have to chose which pics are the favorites! Thank you, Melanie, for sharing the link.

    Good idea, Rio. I’ll get on the phone to Putin tomorrow. He knows what a great spy Natasha is and he wouldn’t want her to marry some backwoods Husky.

    10:25 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Settled!….Good! Now we can get back to important stuff like watching the Rockies sweep the double-header…heh!heh!…I can feel it in my paws…oops!…I don’t want to jinx the game…wuffle!

    I like that commercial with some of the Rockies in it. They are not bad actors.

  93. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:47 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Acting!…They have done several commercials for this season….sniff!….Because it is Year of the Fan, they are using real Rockies die-hard fans in their commercials…heh!…Although, I did not get the letter requestion my presence at the filming…sniff!

    Rio: Speaking of films, I noticed a familiar looking face in the new MIB movie. YSAP!

    Home home – they are finally home. They are hot and tired and stinky and dirty, but they are home and we love them anyway.
    (Plus – Dad set up the air conditioner in the bedroom – we love that!)
    Mama wishes this art show was better for her. Being right in her own backyard, it would be so wonderful if it was a rip roaring success. We think its just not her crowd.
    But she got a real laugh out of all of your comments. We had a great time imagining Siber, Wookie, Alice, Rio, Maggie and the Pack running rampant thru the art show, grabbing folks by their pant legs. Thanks for helping cheer her up – it was a great help.
    You all would have enjoyed the fabulous art that was at the show. There is a guy who makes porcelain fish with wonderful faces – some funny, some scary. And a potter who creates his own glazes that are irridescent and look like oil on water. There is another guy who does sculptures out of scrap metal – our favorite this year was the one of a giant bird – it was titled “Egret – I have a few”. There were over 220 artists with their creations. What an experience – to be surrounded with so many talented creative people, each putting their heart out on display for the public. Wow.
    But we’re glad she’s home now. She wants to get back to playing with her clay just for the sheer fun of it. And we want to sleep on her feet under the table in the Mud Room.

    Rats, There are no Rockies games on the radio here. Mom remembers falling asleep to baseball games on the radio when she was growing up.

    Welcome back Stinky Mama! Annabelle is concerned that Leonard, the Storyteller not the dog’s lap will get cold if the Royals and Rio are hogging your lap. Now that she is retired and has extra time on her paws, she can make future shows to make sure he doesn’t feel ignored.

    Rio: I looked and looked for YSAS, but didn’t see him. I did see a wrinkly face with a curly tail a couple of times.

    We are givin up for the night. Maybe mom will let me turn the computer on in the middle of the night to see if the Rockies won.

    Welcome back Royal’s Mum.

    Once again, Where is Macy?

    night all

    YSAP!…I finally get it…grunt!…I was thinking you saw Clarkson there for a moment…sniff!…I wonder if the YSAP is related to the original Frank…heh!… I really can hardly wait to see that move…sniff!…But we won’t get it till its out on Netflix…grumble!

  104. Snowhook Bella
    11:23 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Rio: I have a long held belief that you played Frank. Our time at the movies was a splurge for our anniversary otherwise we would wait until it came out on DVD.

  105. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:23 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Extra!…Extra Innings…sniff!…Everyone at the game is waiting for the fireworks show…heh!heh!…SiberH is in bed snoring away, not me! Not yet!….grunt!…Someone here does not want the long weekend to end…wuffle!

  106. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:25 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Frank!…I have a poster of Frank on the wall of my warm soft bed….snorkel!…He has been my favorite actor for a really long time now…wuffle!…He is probably living at some Pug Retirement Home by now…..sneeze!

    Bella – tell Annabelle that she is welcome anytime, but Dad’s lap is a territorial battleground between Gilly and Sage. Its really pretty funny to watch. One of them will start with sleeping half in Dad’s lap, and half on the couch. Then the other one starts insinuating themselves very innocently into the other half of Dad’s lap. And then, starts to casually streeetttcchhhhhh out in “sleep” and start pushing the other one off. Little by little the original “lapper” get pushed very gradually onto the couch, and the encroacher settles very comfortably into the middle of the lap. Until the original lapper realizes that their position has been usurped,and that one starts the whole process in reverse. Sometimes the action is a better show than the reruns on tv.

    Rio: (whispering) Is now a good time to tell you that we’ve have 2/3 of the entrance fee as of this evening?

  109. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:31 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Yeep!…Two thirds is a helluva lot better than half!…heh!…How did this happen prey tell?…snort!

  110. Snowhook Bella
    11:32 pm on May 28th, 2012

    T&G: I will let Annabelle know that the Storyteller’s lap is covered. She was concerned that it was going to be a three way paw brawl between the Royals and Rio leaving Leonard, the person not the dog unattended. She said that was unacceptable. I think she’ll rest better knowing that his lap isn’t left unattended.

    We just refreshed to say good night and saw Bella’s good news. Now Mama is almost too excited to go to sleep – well, almost….

    Rio: Folks continued to shop today and we sold some t-shirts and hoodies—we don’t make much on those items, but every little bit helps.

    11:37 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Lap!…I will sit on Golinkas lap but not that other guys…sniff!…I don’t know him and I actually like ladies laps better than those man-guys laps…chorkel!…So the Kats do not have to worry about the quality of air they will be breathing…heh!heh!…If I ever get to visit that is…sniff!

    11:40 pm on May 28th, 2012

    Gasp!…So you mean the Store is continueing to generate more revenue??…wheeze!…This is my dream! That the store will continue to be re-stocked and continue to make money towards Entrance Fee!…sniff!…This is my dream…wheeze!

    Rio: We consider ourselves very fortunate for the hard work it took to make the MMSB a reality as well as the results those efforts yielded.
