No Post Today

“Have a nice drive on 95 on a Friday afternoon,” Admin says on the phone.

“It’ll be all right,” says Spence.

“Heh heh.”

Welcome Cubby, Izzy, Tigger. Lindy – please retry.

    Be safe Spence.

    Good morning all.

    Good Morning, Bee.

    Spence, what she said.

    Gah!…I hate to think of Spencer driving in heavy traffic…snort!…The guy can hardly see over the steering wheel as it is…sniff!

    Good morning, y’all! Lots to do today! I have to supervise Mom and Dad working on the laundry room. Dad’s in there scraping and getting ready to paint. Mom pulled the window all apart and now is going to try to put it together again. It’s one of those old windows in this old house — 1888, remember — and it has weights in the window frame to keep the window open. Only the cords that go on the weights were both broken, so they had to use a can of spray paint to hold the window open! Mom had to pull the frame apart to get to the weights. And then she had to call and drive all around to find something to replace the cord with. She couldn’t find any of the cord, but she finally found the special window sash chain, so she’s using that instead. And then she has to scrape the layers of paint off the frame to see if she can get it to move better. And then she’s going to insulate the whole thing to keep the cold air out. Paws crossed everyone! If this works, she’s going to tackle the windows in the rest of the house.

    Oh Boy, Kirby.
    That sounds like a Project!

    Oh sure – a nice, leisurely drive out of New York City to the land of beaches and summer vacations on a Friday afternoon- sure, there won’t be ANY traffic problems there. Hope he is planning to bring some survival gear, and not just three books.

    sob – we may never hear from him again!

    Good Morning All,

    Spence, please be careful! Been there, done that. On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

    Zoe is with Rosalyn at the vets. She looks better today, but still not tip-top.

    Kirby, we know those windows well. We have original 1850ish windows here. Fortunately for us, the guy who lived here for one year before us spent that entire year rebuilding the frames and chains and all that stuff. So they work well. He also made wooden storm windows for them. They are the old-fashioned kind that you have to hook on at the top and then screw in the bottom. That is a major hassle for Pop every Spring and every Fall.

    From last night’s blog which we read this morning:
    Melanie, keep Ros under the quilt. It sounds like her tummy is going thru what Kat’s did way back in January. That was the night she had to be at the Emergency Vet place and all our money disappeared.
    T&G: Thank you for what you said about our mom last night. She got teary-eyed reading that. We don’t know what is the big deal. We were happy to come live here and make her life so much better.
    Terry, well do you or don’t you have an ARC of AFOC?

  12. Siber-H
    10:36 am on June 8th, 2012

    Be careful Spence! Drives are the most fun on the roads Chet and Bernie travel. 95 is not one of those drives.

    Kirby, your folks aren’t having a fun summer so far, but it will be really nice when the work is finished. We love the idea your house was built in 1888.

    Whew, Rio made it through the night!

  13. Kirby T. Penworthy
    10:49 am on June 8th, 2012

    OH: Wow! Your house is even older than ours! Too bad the work on your windows was already done when you moved in — I’m sure Mom could use some tips!

  14. Barb & Maggie
    10:53 am on June 8th, 2012

    Kirby, ALL the windows in the house? That is a project!

    Safe driving Spence.

    They are fixing our roof today, from the storm damage 2 weeks ago.

    Big (think humongo) sign is up on main hwy, pointing towards our house. Major weekend traffic starts this afternoon. Paws crossed.

    Hey youse guys….Happy Friday!

    Spence be safe on 95!

    Rio: I am glad that you are safe from that nasty weather, and once again, thanks for posting the stem making process of my Lil Bouquet. I am so excited to receive it!!!!!!

    Text from M advises I’ll Have Another has been scratched from The Belmont(!) Press conference at 1 pm EDT.

    Bear, For crying out loud! What the?

  19. OleyHowlers
    11:49 am on June 8th, 2012

    Mom just posted that on your FB picture of I’ll Have Another.
    We’ll bite…who is M that is texting you?

    Rose!…I hope those are the colors you were expecting…sniff!…She said she is going to put 4 red, 3 yellow, 3 blue and 2 violet in the bouquet…wheeze!…Is this to your specs?

  22. BearSpiritDog
    11:57 am on June 8th, 2012

    Siber-H: This is a Big deal. I’ll Have Another was top contender for the coveted Triple Crown.
    O.Howlers: Masquers from the East Coast.

  23. OleyHowlers

    His trainer said he has a leg injury. Little wonder … they run those horses way too young.

  24. Siber-H
    12:02 pm on June 8th, 2012

    I know Bear, We were planning on watching the race tomorrow. My comment was more along the lines of why, why, why? I confuse myself sometimes.
    One hour till we learn why. This is sad.

  25. Siber-H
    12:04 pm on June 8th, 2012

    My fellow Sibers just found out the reason!

  26. Rose
    12:04 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Rio, tell your friend that sounds purrfect!

  27. Barb & Maggie
    12:28 pm on June 8th, 2012

    I hope it is not a life threatening injury. And Oley is right, they run them too young, before their bones are fully developed. TBs like to run, just like huskies, but a horse is still a baby at 2.

    Did we tell you we have a man spending the night tomorrow night who Barb has never met?

  28. Tupper and Gilly
    12:32 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Ok Barb – we’ll bite . WHAT?????

  29. OleyHowlers
    12:39 pm on June 8th, 2012

    oooohhh this sounds very exciting! Tell us more, Maggie…what is Barb up to?

  30. Melanie
    12:50 pm on June 8th, 2012

    A rooster? A dog? A goat?

    Inquiring minds want to know!

    Beau?

    B&M, DO TELL!

  33. Kirby T. Penworthy
    1:38 pm on June 8th, 2012

    B&M: Mom’s not doing all the windows at once! She’ll do them as she can. The big thing is insulating the well where the weights are — they’re supposed to let lots of cold air in during the winter. This house is very leaky, so the more stuff we can seal, the better.

    Oh, and that’s some blind date Barb has!!!

  34. BearSpiritDog
    1:41 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Maggie! Don’t keep us in suspense.

  35. Barb & Maggie
    1:44 pm on June 8th, 2012

    No Melanie, it is a 2-legged with no feathers.

    I knew that would get a response youse!!

    Favorite son Josh called the other day and asked Barb if this guy, Brian, could spend the night at our house. He is reping the bike shop at races this summer, and could not find a place to stay in Galena where the races are being held Sat. & Sunday. He has his own business, is 40, divorced, has long hair and a six-pack. (Do you know what that is Bee?) Barb’s first question to Josh was “Does he like animals?”

    That may seem like a strange question, but we knew if Josh and Jess could vouch for him, he would be ok. Barb’s first thought was Jordan, our super-cute vet-tech, who is single and looking for an animal lover type guy. When Josh said he has 5 cats, we knew he could stay and we were calling Jordy to see if she could join us for dinner tomorrow. Jordy has 2 cats. Umm, could love be far behind?

    Barb: You sneaky little match-maker you.

  37. Siber-H
    1:55 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Keep us posted, Barb. He sounds like a nice guy with good references.

  38. Rose
    1:55 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Match-maker, match-maker, make me a match…. :)

  39. B.Stover
    2:04 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Barb: It means he’s in good shape.

  40. Tupper and Gilly
    2:08 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Bee – either that or he has 6 bottles of Cahors…

  41. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:10 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Barb!…Lets hope the lady likes beer…snort!

  42. OleyHowlers
    2:11 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Rats! We want a man with a sixpack of some very good beer. heh heh

  43. Barb & Maggie
    2:12 pm on June 8th, 2012

    I’m afraid Bee is right, the six pack refers to his stomach muscles, but I wish it were 6 bottles of Cahors. That would be more fun!

  44. OleyHowlers
    2:16 pm on June 8th, 2012

    I’ll Have Another has a swollen left-front tendon. He is fine but they scratched him as a precaution. Thats cool. They said he will be back next year.

    O.Howlers: Too bad about the Triple Crown, but Thank Dog he will be okay.

  46. Tupper and Gilly
    2:26 pm on June 8th, 2012

    And Thank Dog they didn’t try to run him on an injured leg. We coulnd’t stand another Ruffian. We would never be able to watch a race again.

  47. OleyHowlers
    2:28 pm on June 8th, 2012

    T&G, we already can’t watch a race since Barbaro, local hometown hero.

  48. Buddy
    2:30 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Mommy is so excited to do another horse event tomorrow “Ride and Seek”. But now Daddy’s dumb job might make him work and they wouldn’t get to go. She will cry cry cry. She even talked two others into joining their team.

  49. BearSpiritDog
    2:34 pm on June 8th, 2012

    O.Howlers: Barbaro one of our favorites. Another very sad story in the World of Horse Racing.

  50. BearSpiritDog
    2:36 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Ride and Seek – a very clever play on words. O.Howlers, paws crossed your mom and dad will be able to attend.

  51. Barb & Maggie
    2:42 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Glad I’ll Have Another is OK, we were worried. At least he wasn’t kept in the race.

    And on the subject of horses, Lily is heading to her first horse back riding lesson this afternoon. Much better to have your own horse to ride, but she is still excited. Her own mom was a skilled rider by her age (10). We have pictures of Kelly sitting on a horse, bareback, no bridle, just using her legs and the horse mane to guide her horse around the pasture. Awesome!

  52. Barb & Maggie
    2:48 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Buddy, Can your mom still go on the ride with the friends if dad has to work?

  53. Gus and BooBear
    2:54 pm on June 8th, 2012

    We just saw a blurb on MSN that I’ll Have Another is retired and not coming back next year. If that’s true, must be a bad injury.

  54. Tupper and Gilly
    3:01 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Buddy – your Dad looks a little feverish to us. Was that a sneeze we just heard. Its probably one of those 24 hour things, and he may be fine by tomorrow, but he better call in sick just to be sure. Wouldn’t want to spread those germs around….

  55. BearSpiritDog
    3:01 pm on June 8th, 2012

    G&BooBear: I know. We read the bit about retiring, but then the article also mentioned something about “another day”…very confusing.

  56. Masquers
    3:13 pm on June 8th, 2012
  57. Buddy
    3:16 pm on June 8th, 2012

    That is completely different than the link the Howlers posted earlier…wonder why the confusion?

    Maggie, Mommie is a weenie and would probably not drive alone with Annie in the trailer. So if Daddy can’t go she will likely stay home. Altho her friend is trying to convince her otherwise.

  58. Tupper and Gilly
    3:30 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Buddy (whispering) – our Mama is a weenie too, but there have been times that she had to do something by herself. It scared the bejeebers out of her, but she did it. And she was happy she did.
    We hope that both your folks get to go, cuz it sounds like fun, but if your Dad can’t go, we hope your Mom does.

  59. Barb & Maggie
    3:51 pm on June 8th, 2012

    What T & G said. It won’t be as much fun without dad, but still go.

  60. Buddy
    3:52 pm on June 8th, 2012

    T&G: If our mommy had to drive Annie somewhere for an emergency, you can be sure she could/would do it. But for a completely fun event, it doesn’t sound like too much fun. Annie and Ned are a team now.

  61. BearSpiritDog
    3:54 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Buddy: Can your mom’s friend help with the trailer?

  62. Buddy
    4:02 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Mommy’s friend will be driving her own trailer with her and her horse and her daughter’s pony.

    Did we ever post a picture of Annie? I know the Howlers posted pictures of Shiek, but I don’t think you ever saw Psy Ann (“Annie”).

  63. Buddy
    4:03 pm on June 8th, 2012

    oops … didn’t mean to hit enter.

  64. BearSpiritDog
    4:14 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Annie is a Beauty!

  65. Barb & Maggie
    4:17 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Is she called PsyAnn because she is Arab? She is beautiful! How old is she?

  66. Melanie
    4:32 pm on June 8th, 2012

    If only the guest was 15 to 20 years older . . sigh.

    Beautiful Annie!

    I came home from the store, honked the horn, put the groceries on the West Wing steps. Usually Zoë hears this and starts taking them into the house. I had gotten some plants that I needed to put in back so started doing that. By the time I was coming around the house near the orchard THERE WAS A GROWN UP BLACK BEAR walking through our orchard.

    I backed up to the living room window and whispered for Zoe to help me because she hadn’t heard me honk the horn. Nobody but dogs. I started with the raw roasting chicken making sure that I never turned my back on the bear and got the groceries in the house. By the time the dogs got around to the stockade and puppy play yard they could smell it, but it was across the street and in the neighbors yard. Whew. Lots of barking.

    Adrenalin rush for me!

  67. B.Stover
    4:55 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Annie is a chestnut, my favorite. Beautiful.

  68. OleyHowlers
    5:01 pm on June 8th, 2012

    OMD !!! Melanie, stay safe and keep the pack inside! WOW Holy Jeepers! A BEAR !!!
    Annie’s registered name is Psy Ann becuae her daddy is All Psyched Upp whose sire is Arabian Nationals Reserve Champion Padron’s Psyche. Her dam (mom) is Shai Ann whose sire is National Champion (same year) Simeon Shai. Her name is a combnation of the two. She was bred to the 9s as they say. And she thinks she is people. That picture is when she was 6. She is now 13. We need to find a more current one. We have lots of them hanging around the house, that were taken by equine photographers on various Paper Chases, but they are not digitized.

  69. OleyHowlers
    5:10 pm on June 8th, 2012

    O.K. we found one of the pictures taken on a Paper Chase. It was a very cold day, and Annie already had a start on her winter fur. But it is a recent one. Mom is on Annie and Pop is on Chato. His horse, GT Chato was named for some Western movie. We didn’t name him, but Mom and Pop did name Annie Psy Ann. She named herself “Annie”.

  72. Barb & Maggie
    5:28 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Double Gulp!

    Hope I didn’t insult you when I asked if she was named that because she is Arab. Had Arabs for many years, so obviously love them.

    Here is Lily at her riding lesson, sent from Kelly’s iphone.

  73. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:45 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Gah!…Not only do I have to worry about Spencer getting creamed on I-95, but now I have to worry about Melanie getting eaten by a Bear…gasp!

  74. Gus and BooBear
    5:47 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Bear, Mom sent an email to several folks on the blog (ones she had addresses for) that had some cool pics. Wasn’t spam.

  75. Tupper and Gilly
    5:49 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Ok Lily – heels down! Relax your arms a little and you will be fine.

    Annie is very pretty, and Chato looks like a fine horse too. Its very nice that Annie and Ned are buddies. Our Mama’s best ponyboy had a girlfriend – they were inseparable, and ignored all the other horses in the pasture.

    Melanie – so what’s the big deal? 9 bears INSIDE the house – 1 outside. tee hee

  76. Barb & Maggie
    5:57 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Yea, you are right – her heels are not down!

    We got the email from G & B, and the pictures were way cool. Not spam.

    Melanie, are the bears afraid of the pack? Didn’t take that guy long to smell the chicken, did it?

  77. Barb & Maggie
    5:57 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Yea, you are right – her heels are not down!

    Oops, a Double D!

  79. B.Stover
    6:17 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Gus and BooBear: I received the pictures and they are cool.

    Melanie: What did the vet say about Rosalyn?

  80. Melanie
    6:22 pm on June 8th, 2012

    I liked the picture of the cat with no legs. Just floating in space.

    I have to say with the first glance I thought one of the Pack was loose. Second thing I did was reach for the cell phone to take a picture. It wasn’t in my pocket I had put in my purse something I never do, drat.

    I’m not sure how long I’m staying awake. Last two days gardening have been great. Today I put in the Bachelor Buttons, beets, bunching onions (thanks Barb) and spinach seeds. I planted two white Echinacea, two Black-eyed Susans, two Bee Balm, three snapdragons and 3 zinnias. When they start bushing out they should be very pretty.

    My plan for Dan’s sitting area is working. I have three hanging baskets under the tree and I saw a hummingbird there today!

  81. Melanie
    6:23 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Whatever we saw in Rosalyn’s intestine has moved down along the bowel. So things are going well. So to speak. snicker

    Time to clean the kitchen!

  82. Melanie
    6:50 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Here is a pic from the email sent out by Gus and BooBear. It’s my favorite because it made me laugh. There were some beautiful ones of horses too.

  83. BearSpiritDog

    Barb&Magpie: Riding is a good pastime. Something Lily can enjoy always.

    Now what was I going to say?…Oh, yes…Wolfie, The Dog Who Danced arrived today. It was perfect timing, as we just closed the cover on the last book.

  85. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:16 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Neighbors!…Tonight my friend is going to a neighborhood BBQ…sniff!…She says she will have to talk to all the people Beau and I embarrass her in front of every single night…heh!heh!…Her mother isn’t going because she shampooed the whole living room carpet and now her back is killing her…grunt!…My friend is seriously mad at her because they were going to do this shampooing thing together tomorrow morning so her mother wouldn’t hurt her back…wheeze!…Well thats that I guess…snort!

  86. Barb & Maggie
    7:27 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Tell your friend to have fun, Rio.

    I loved that cat picture too, but seriously, I could not figure it out. Where are the legs? Also on the one where the goose is chasing the fox, does the fox have something in its mouth? I hope it was not a gosling.

  87. Melanie
    7:36 pm on June 8th, 2012

    BLOCK PARTY! We used to have those when I was growing up. Great fun.

    Here’s another one of my favorites.

    I am now going to sleep in my bed. I just woke up with my head on the keyboard!

    Sorry…we were busy supervising the lawn mowing. (whispering) we were actually trying to elude those tractors.
    We love the picture of Lily having her first lesson! There is something about girs and horses that is simply wonderful to us.
    Love the pics Melanie posted too…the cat suspended and those beautiful horses!
    Barb, why would you think we’d be offended? We sort of wish Annie had a more obvious Arab name. But she sure has the Arab look, doesn’t she?

  89. Barb & Maggie
    9:03 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Oley, We were thinking you might be insulted because Psy reminded us of Psycho, which some Arabs have been accused of being. We know what you mean about the Arab sounding names. We had a mare named Fadra.

    Lily had so much fun on her first lesson, that now all 3 kids are trying to talk Kelly and Chad into selling their house and getting something in the country so they could have horses. We told Lily we could build an apartment in the barn. Snicker.

  90. BearSpiritDog
    9:12 pm on June 8th, 2012

    We peeked at Wolfie’s book and it’s looking good.
    Time to say Good Night – Bear

    9:13 pm on June 8th, 2012

    Bsrb – it would be great if Kelly’s family came out your way and had a farm. Lily seems to be a natural with animals and gardening etc. Hmmmm. Maybe that’s why your pretty little farm isn’t selling….

    That was a picture of Lily’s FIRST time on a horse? Wow – in that case, she was doing GREAT! Is she a natural athletic type of kid?

    T & G, Yes that was her first lesson. She has probably been on a pony or horse before, but this was first serious time on board. She loves animals (it’s in her dna) and she likes sports but I am not sure you would call her a natural athlete.

    As far as them moving this direction, that is not going to happen. All the grands are involved in school and social activities, and both SIL and son have businesses established back there. It will definitely be us moving. No if or ands.

    We are heading to bed shortly. Got a busy day tomorrow with the hunk arriving late afternoon. Tee hee.

    Mom and Pop are heading out to Ride and Seek but she asked us to tell Barb this (about Arabs and psycho):
    One year when she went to Arabian Nationals there she fell head over heels over a stallion named Eternety. He ended up winning National Champion that year, but Mom followed him from qualifying round to qualifying round. After he won the final, she was the first one to pet him when he left the ring, and his handler/trainer took his Eternety pin off of his lapel and gave it to her. She still has it hanging in her office. She was even drinking champagne with all of the Eternety folks! ha ha her one brush with fame. She still has an entire wall of the tack room covered with Eternety pictures.
    Anyway, she had tried talking Pop out of buying a horse and letting her breed Annie to Eternety. She thought she could name the baby “Eternally Psycho”. Pop thought that sounded pretty scary! heh heh
