No Post Today

“Why not?” says Spence.

“Because I’m stuck in the HOV lane on the Southeast Expressway,” Admin says. “We haven’t moved for 25 minutes. I’m timing it.”

“How’s your blood pressure?”

“At the moment? Can’t be measured by current technology.”

Welcome Katie.

    Good morning, y’all! Sorry, Admin, sounds like you should have stayed on the Cape! That’s why Big City living just isn’t for Mom. In fact, that’s one of the reasons she wasn’t so sure she wanted to go to Atlanta to meet Rebecca. She’s a little terrified of the traffic there. Luckily, she decided to go, and managed to get there and back with only a few terrifying moments!

    Wonder where Admin is going. It is hot and humid.

    Good morning all.

    About to drive to Anchorage…7.5 hours. Should be highway speeds but with tourists’ rvs and tour buses, who knows? My trusty Subaru had been parked in the garage 6 months = dead battery and two flat tires. I charged the battery for 8 hours without success and my air compressor evidently was not powerful enough for the tires. So I will be taking my Toyota Prius: good gas mileage but room for only one dog kennel. #tryingnotstressandIhaven’tevenleft

    OOO CHobbit. Best wishes for you on your trip. I hope everything else goes lickety split.

    Best wishes, C.Hobbit, and thank you for doing this.

    Good morning, All.

    Zen Cat Masquers up top!

    C.Hobbit: Hope your trip goes smoothly and those big RV’s and tourists stay out of your way.

    Me too!
    Kirby: I am terrified of city traffic also but occasionally test my limits. I would test them for a Plunderer gathering.

    Oh yeah.
    Poor Admin!

    C. Hobbitt-Harris, good luck on your mission.

    Masquers, my dear friend. Rebecca tells me you had a rough landing on AJs head. Hope you are tip-top.

    Belle Starr, hope your tongue is still not scorched. More lightning bolts scheduled for Friday. I’m not sure it’s such a good idea to be a spectator……

    Gah. Returned home to a katastrophe of the dreaded computer variety. I asked what was being done about it. BSD said he had put in a call to someone who is fast becoming quite techno-savey: Siber-H. So, until help arrives (hopefully today) we may be incommunicato.

    Big news here in Chevy Chase. The Wookiemobile got upgraded to a new, 2012 Volvo Cross Country this past weekend. I did make sure that dad kept in all the secret antidetection devices and the combo hot wings griller/beer dispenser, but other than that, it is fully equipped with all new stuff. Woo! Woo!

    Also, question for B&M. My folks got a new heirloom tomato they had never heard off at a farm market this Saturday called Cherokee Green (I think it is a counsin of Cherokee Purple), and were wondering if you were familiar with it. It is a completely green tomato, with green insides. They thought it was quite yummy and may try to plant one next year, in addition to the Cherokee Purples, which are still doing terrific this year. (Unfortunately, the rest of our tomato plants this year are not doing that well.)

    Finally, we just got the latest Rosenfelt Andy Carpenter book, called Leader of the Pack (I think it was just published last Tuesday). So far, really good, but they are taking it slow to savor it.


  11. Rose
    11:56 am on July 23rd, 2012

    Wookie, you are stylin’ and profilin’ with that new Wookiemobile!

  12. B.Stover
    12:10 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    The upgrade sounds great Wookie.

  13. B.Stover
    12:21 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Love the color of the nasturtium this year.

  14. B.Stover
    12:22 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    And the lemon balm.

  15. Siber-H
    12:37 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    I don’t know what an HOV lane is so we must not have them here.

    Congratulations, Wookie! Volvos are great, safe, cars.

    Masquers, I hope you can get the computer fixed soon. We hate computer and internet problems.

    Stover, Beautifuil red flower.

    CHarris, I wish I could be there to help you. I’d wish that even if you were in the state of Georgia instead of Alaska.

  16. Rose
    12:48 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    B. I love the pretty red flowers. Like Kat, red flowers are my favorite. I try not to eat them, though.

  17. Rose
    12:50 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    SiberH: HOV stands for High Occupancy Vehicle. I think Admin is breaking the law if he is in the HOV lane, and the only person in the car. Tee hee

  18. Rose
    12:52 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Masquers, I hope you are not lost to us here at the blog. Darn computers!!!

  19. B.Stover
    1:16 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Rose: One is supposed to eat nasturtium flowers and leaves. They are delicious in a salad–peppery. (Help yourself Kat.)

  20. Siber-H
    1:24 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Thanks, Rose, Nope, we don’t have HOV lanes here. We just have a “do your own thing” on the interstate.

    I just ordered the Kindle One Touch, Gasp

    How will CHobbittHarris pick only one of the pregnant huskies to take home with her? She will have to leave one behind!!

    1:37 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Good morning. Been busy all morning. Finally a quick break, but I’ve really got to wash out the car.

    Congrats on the upgrade Wöökie! (Does it still drive upside down like the car in Men in Black?)

    Let’s see if Peter, Spence, Admin, Bernie and Chet were all in the car, it would definitely be a HO vehicle!


  23. Melanie
    1:38 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    CHarris, sorry about your car troubles. Hope you can get all your rescues in what ever vehicle you take.

    SH: Good for you!

  25. Rose
    2:16 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    B, in that case, I may have try nasturtiums sometime.

  26. B.Stover
    2:37 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Rose: It’s easy to grow either in a pot or in the ground. (It does spread.)

  27. Melanie
    2:53 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    B.Stover is right! Very tasty and spreads.

    Siber-H, (wiping tear away) I’m so proud of you.

  28. Siber-H
    3:05 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Thanks Stover and Melanie.

  29. Kat
    3:05 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    I will ask my mommy to plant nasturtiums. Thanks, Bee.

    3:09 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Hey y’all,

    Wookie has alerted me to a possible situation with sending my auction winnings to Canada. Canadian Customs! So, if you are sending me a package to my Canadian address you can ask Rebecca for my Mpls. address instead. It might be easier all around. Thanks.

  31. B.Stover
    3:13 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Kat: LOL!

  32. Rose
    3:16 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    B, is it too late for me to pick some up from a local nursery?

  33. dawson
    3:19 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Oh no!
    SiberH: How could you leave me down here in techno-idiocy all alone? (Although I remind you that I have managed to post a few photos, although baffled as to how I did it.)
    Seriously, congratulations and let me know if anything explodes when you turn that contraption on.
    B.Stover: I am sending a blanket apology for ending sentences in prepositions. It just keeps happening and so there!

  34. B.Stover
    3:29 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Rose: I don’t think it’s too late to plant nasturtium. It keeps growing through October.

  35. dawson
    3:29 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    New Friend of Chet!
    Katie the bossy Aussie: Your smile is huge!

  36. B.Stover
    3:31 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Dawson: That is something up with which I will not put. (Did Bedrnard Shaw say that? And isn’t it a ridiculous sentence…arranged so that it doesn’t end in a preposition.)

  37. Melanie
    3:39 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    I like Katie. I love Ramses’ ears.

  38. Siber-H
    3:45 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Dawson, We cannot assume that I will know how to use the e-reader. Ordering it was the easy part. I cheated because I ordered an adapter plug to go with it so I would not have to use my computer to charge it. That is too complicated.
    Rio is going to eat a couch if I can get a book downloaded from Amazon.

  39. B.Stover
    3:54 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    SH: I have a plug for my Kindle Fire also rather than charging it on my computer. All you have to do is order whatever books you want from Amazon and they automatically download it.

  40. B.Stover
    4:04 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Rose: I have grown nasturtium from seed but usually buy a plant already started which I did this year. I’d suggest that you do that since it may be too late to start with seed.

  41. Siber-H
    4:08 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Stover, but you have to register it and set up your one-click payments and all that good stuff. Once the Kindle is set up, the downloading books seems pretty easy…too easy.

  42. B.Stover
    4:13 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    SH: It was too long ago that I set up my Amazon account so I don’t remember how. However, I’m sure you just have to follow the directions. And, yes, one-click ordering is too easy! (And you can buy lots on things on Amazon, not just books……)

  43. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    4:33 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Just remember, and never forget, that a preposition is a bad thing to end a sentence with.

    Stopping in for a quick hello. Been busy today with many real estate calls trying to order things, schedule things, blah, blah.

    Just found 50 cds tucked away in a cabinet. Kids don’t want them so off to the thrift store they go.

    Wookie, We here have not heard of Cherokee Green, but it must be related. The partially green, yellow and orange tomatoes we have sampled in the past were just so-so on flavor. We had our first Black Krim the other day and it was excellent. The Box Car Willie will not be repeated nor will the Black Sea Man. It is not producing well at all. Plus it is determinate (all at once) so not a great producer. Several of the others have lots of large green tomatoes. How is that new pink variety doing that you got from White Flower Farm?

  45. B.Stover
    4:53 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Wookie: LOL!

    SH: If you have any trouble setting up your account, let me know and I’ll help if I can.

    I’ve always wanted to drive to Anchorage but it would take a lot more than 7.5 hours, even in light traffic. Going up the AlCan highway starting from Long Island, I’d be happy for 8 days.
    Yesterday we took the train and subway to the Bronx to see the Chelsea Football Club play Paris St. Germaine at the first soccer game every played at the New Yankee Stadium. Donna and I had time so we walked the perimeter of the baseball park they’ve created at the site of the old Yankee Stadium. Our seats at the park looked over at Monument Park. I pointed out to Donna that if you went by the size of the plaque Steinbrenner’s contribution to the Yankees was the equivalent of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Joe Dimaggio combined.

  47. Siber-H
    5:42 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Thank You Stover. I have had my account with Amazon for years, but I guess it has to be set up on the One Touch also. I’ll take you up on your offer of help if necessary.

    ummm They tore down History when they tore down the old Yankee Stadium, but I guess a new stadium was necessary. The new one is huge.

    I hope CHarris is doing okay and can check back in with us tonight.

    5:56 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Dad went upstairs so I have turned the air conditioners on full blast. And turned the one in his room from 80 degrees to 70. I have about 10 – 15 minutes and I will quick set everything back to the way it was when he went up there. Swelter!

    Me too!
    I love Ramses’ ears.

    SiberH: Just follow the instructions…I’m sure it will be a breeze…heh, heh, heh.

    Dawson: quilt went in the mail today to Canada. Wish I would have seen your note about your MN addy before my journey to the PO. Jeez Louise the forms and $$ to send to you. Regardless, hope you enjoy the warmth and comfort of the quilt.

    Mom’s next quilt project is a donation for a coworker who had a stroke at age 28. There is a fundraiser next month for him.

    Hot here in the middle of the mitten. Staying cool in my apartment and letting out an occasional growl or yip at the fools walking outside in this heat.

  50. Mollypop's Mom

    Siber-H – Since you already have an amazon account, your Kindle will already be in it.

  51. Mollypop's Mom
    6:04 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    And Siber-H – You are becoming so technical, but the day you post a picture, I’ll eat a couch cushion.

  52. Siber-H
    6:06 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Mollypop’s Mom? You mean I won’t have to do anything to set up the payments for the items I order from my Kindle?

    Did you guys ever see such drama (the drama is mine) over one little piece of technology. lol

  53. dawson
    6:39 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Jasper: Me too. I’m sorry I didn’t think of it until Wookie mentioned it. Sob.

  54. Melanie
    6:41 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Siber-H, yes, I have seen that much drama. YSAS was an drama king since before he was born.

    Dawson! Love that idea of turning up the AC when someone is not looking. Might have to try that.

    Dan asked me where I was going on my 3 week vacation. I just sort of looked at him. I said that I had put my vacation plans on hold for this summer. I have NEVER taken a 3 week vacation, had no plans to and how on earth would I pay for it???

    Oh well, when I told him I wasn’t taking a vacation this year, he said he must have dreamed it.

    Had my SQUASH tonight. Delish! We each got 2 green beans too.

  55. B.Stover
    6:45 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Yes, Mollypop’s Mom is correct. I didn’t have to set up a different Amazon account for my Kindle. Excellent!!

  56. Rose
    6:45 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Melanie, the post office was here, but we weren’t ‘t. If the Prof isn’t home tomorrow, I will insist that he go to the post office! Heh!

    Snigglefritz, I have to go jiggle wires in the phone box.

  59. Melanie
    6:59 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    V phone people are trying to tell me it’s my “devices” that are the problem. Since the last time I fixed this I jiggled THEIR wires. I doubt it.

  60. Siber-H
    7:02 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Stover, excellent!

    Rose, hmm, no, You are not computer illerate. You can post photos which I will never be able to do. Mollypop’s Mom can forget about ever having to eat that couch cushion.
    I do excel, if I do say so myself, at shopping online.

  61. Melanie
    7:21 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Fixed it for now. Set up an appointment. Now phone is working. sigh.

    it occurred to me that perhaps our box wasn’t correct.

    This is what the box is supposed to look like.

  62. Belle Starr
    7:21 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Wookie: Will you teach me how to drive? I would like to be able to drive Rose to the beach and on shopping excursions. If I had my license I could pick up Rio and his friend and drive them all the way to Alaska. My two-legged says I’m not responsible enought to have my license. She says I failed the test that involves taking care of a gold fish. I don’t know how she thinks I failed. The gold fish was delish! What say you? I will even supply the pillow so I can see over the steering wheel.

  63. Melanie
    7:22 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Siber-H, would you like to come over and fix our phone line?

    This is what our box looks like. Tad different.

  64. Melanie
    7:24 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Belle Starr, don’t tell your two legged, but I bet you already have a license!

    Is it safe to come out from under beds and behind chairs? What a racket has been going on here!!!! Very loud thunder, crackling lightening, haill, tons of rain (3/4″ inch), amd gale-force winds blowing it all sideways. They are outside picking up all the tree limbs and branches now. They say the weather is now quite nice. Should we trust it?

    Siber, we think you will love your Kindle. We do, but ours is not the touch one.

  66. Melanie
    7:31 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Bella, please check SDD.
    Riö, you should have received a SDD a while ago.

    Terry, great picture. YSAS lives in NYC but can not find it in his heart to cheer for the Yankees. He is considering the minor (?) league team that plays out near Coney Island? I think that’s what he said.

  67. dawson
    7:45 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Melanie: Lately mom has been fine with the air conditioner on as long as it is not blowing in her direction. She has not been getting the chills anymore. Dad, however, sets the air conditioner at 80! He is driving me bonkers today…I need another “day off”.

  68. Siber-H
    7:47 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Melanie, Oh good grief, Your phone box is in pitiful shape. I’m laughing at the two contrasting photos, but I know it isn’t funny. It looks like a bear attacked your phone box.

  69. Melanie
    8:00 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Siber-H, I wish it had been a bear, but it was a technician!

    Dawson, Where shall we meet for our day off?

  70. OleyHowlers

    8:12 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Now that some camera-shy people have their pictures here or on facebookie, I feel I can post a few more from the Big Event. No names, however.

  72. Belle Starr
    8:12 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Melanie: My two-legged says I have a license to drive her crazy, but that it doesn’t make me legal to be on the road. She also says she knows about the fake ID Pancho and Lefty made for me. According to my two-legged, no one will believe I’m a middle aged male who needs corrective lenses.

  73. Rose
    8:12 pm on July 23rd, 2012

    Melanie, Brooklyn’s minor league team is the Cyclonees. Rock land county has their own minor league team, the Boulders. He can always root for the Mets. Snort!

    SiberH, my BFF Belle Starr and I are excellent online shoppers! You should blur over sometime!

    It doesn’t look like the pregnant husky rescue will happen. I was told one dog was small (35 lbs) so I thought she would fit into a medium crate which would fit into my car. That information was incorrect. Also, both pregnant huskies are 2 hours away. The dog owner leaves the property at 3 am and doesn’t get back until 8 pm. Anchorage rescue would have to crate the dog, drive it to Anchorage, keep it overnight in the crate until I picked her up in the morning. Crate w/dog would be lifted into my car (if it would have fit) then I would drive 6.5 hours home without stopping. They were already worried about the stress of a 2-hour drive to the Anchorage rescue on a wildl, pregnant dog much less a 7 hour drive to back to my place. Plus I have no one at home to lift the crate with dog into my new dog run. Anyway, I think it would have been cruel to crate a pregnant dog for 19 hours without a break. The dogs are completely unsocialized/wild so they can’t be leashed. The have progressed enough that some have collars but even that is an ordeal.

    I’ve been on pins and needles about this for over a month (these are two dogs that they just discovered were pregnant–part of the 19 left with the owner out of 70 original dogs). Puppies could arrive anytime and I can’t transport a mom and pups as she would be stressed enough to harm the puppies either intentionally or unintentionally. It just wasn’t meant to be. I was willing to work hard to socialize the mother but taming a feral dog who then has essentially feral puppies is probably unrealistic. If I wasn’t working half-time, I would just bring the future puppies home if they could be gotten from the mother and feed them night and day. But that is risky too. I feel bad. Life is hard and sometimes there just isn’t a solution or a good ending.

    I want to try the Cherokee Green too.

    CHarris I hope you are safe in Anchorage now.

    Bear good luck with your computer and Mr.Husky with your Kindle and Melanie with your nasty old phone box. heh

    Dawson I used to put the temp down to 75 in Dad’s room in the daytime. Turn it up at night when Mom went to be. Dad never noticed. snicker.

    Love the red Nasturtiums, B.

    I have been slowly trying to integrate two years of quilting stuff back into my quilt room. When I go back to Minneapolis I will have to have a no buying quilt stuff rule. Sigh….

    Staff: Dad is onto my shenanigans now. Whenever I have turned it down he has turned it back up…sigh. I just leave it off rather than turned up to 80 degrees.

    CHarris, don’t feel bad. You have done everything you could. What you have just described is an impossible situation. We are proud of you for trying. Thank You

    I need some help with math. Anybody? I’m trying to figure out the ratio of how much I can get away with to how much AJ loves me. My heart is hurting for HawbitHookHarris and the poor dogs in this situation. Can I seriously be considering fostering them? AJ will kill me. Of course, it was almost 24 hours before he noticed Howard in the kennel. Carry the two…Gah! I hate math.

    CHobbitHarris: Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray!

    Snowhook Bella: No! SiberH: What say you?

    Oh goody! Mom has gone to bed early. Me too. Goodnight all. Hoping all is well in pugland. Prayers for Plunderers.

    Rebecca, I am going to say the same thing Dawson said, NO!
    I am going to tell you what you already know: The two adult females dogs are not adoptable and it is probably impossible to fix their behavior problems. You, or the rescue they came from, would have them for the rest of their lives.
    There is all the hope he world for the puppies, but that would be close to a full time job for someone. You and AJ already have more than enough to do.
    Rebecca, We love you for considering this, but mom says sometimes in life, we have to be realistic.

    Mr.Husky up top for me.

    Rio hasn’t posted since last night. His friend was really hot under her collar last night. I hope she is in her cool basement twirling paper and watching the Rockies win a game.

    I hope she is OK and didn’t blow a gasket.

    We are a little late in chiming in, but we are here at last. Mama and Dad spent the day traveling and unpacking and all thast, but now they are home home home – until the next Really Big Shew.

    CHobbit, and Rebecca – your hearts are obviously bigger than your common sense. We understand the heartache you are both feeling, but as Siber says – sometimes we do have to be realistic. Otherwise, each and every Plunderer’s home would be jam packed with puppies and kittens and oldsters and tripods and special need critters. Sometimes we have to let the universe take some of the burden off our shoulders.

    Mama said we can report that everyone was good for Grampa this time. No spots on carpets, no messes on couches.

    And now Mama is going to be buckling down and getting some of her past due orders completed and in the mail. Really.

    Hope all is well with Rio – sounds like things have been a little stressful there in PugVille.

    We may have to call out Search and Rescue tomorrow for Rio.
    I’m with Alice, I hope Rio’s friend is okay.

    Rebecca, Lock Your Doors!

    Night All

    Yo- Brother Rio – Ah heard tell that you bin havin a tough ole time of it. Whatcha say you and ole Redbone git together in yur backyard for some bluegrass an ‘shine? Mighten not fix things, but at least you won’t care as much.
    You cheer up now little Pug. Y’all got yur friends on this here blog to lean on. (sorry Miz Bee)

    The numbers just didn’t add up. It was too close to how much AJ loves me and how much I can get away with to ignore reality. I’m frustrated, because Dawson, SiberH and Golinka speak the truth—a truth that (they’re right) I already knew— and that makes it all the worse. Life isn’t fair and often seems to slide against those souls that need a break the most.

    I held the dogs a little longer as I did chores tonight, talked a little softer, nuzzled a closer and thanked the heavens for the newest rescues in the Kennel: Elmer, Leonard and Florence.

    I also thanked the heavens for CHobbitHarris, who committed herself to loving and caring for the dogs despite the difficulties the situation posed. CHawbitHookHarris—you are tops in my book!

    Oh, if AJ asks, can we all agree to tell him I came to the realistic and sensible conclusion on my own? It will help me for future dealings.

    Tops, CHobbit, tops!

    Your secret is safe with us, Bella. I know what you mean though. Sometimes I have to close my heart off or it will break. Not that I am weak, but so many sweet souls do not deserve the lives they are handed.
