No Post Today

Why not? Spence is airborne, on his way to Houston. He’ll be at Murder By The Book – a great store – tonight at 6:30. Maybe he’ll read the boxing scene from A Fistful of Collars.

Welcome Truffles and family, Roxy & Spencer.

    Rio! That was a very tragic story last night. Please make sure your friend is very careful on the roads.

    Good morning, y’all! Mom finally brought FOC home last night, so now I actually know what the boxing scene is! Still reading, though…

    5 mored days till our book signing. We are all excited! Baye is going to bring one of her Ingrid books to be signed.

    We have to go back and read Rio’s post from last night.

    Just read Rio’s sad story from last night. How awful for his family. You never know when something freakish like that will happen, so a reminder to enjoy each day to the fullest.

    I still haven’t read last night’s Riö story. Hope I can get to it before I go to the eye doc.

    Barb: This is from my cousin Barb! Labradoodle? The Labradoodle dog breed has a personality and temperament that is intelligent, level-headed, intelligent, and cheerful. This combination of traits makes Labradoodles outstanding service and therapy dogs, as well as terrific family companions. Yeah, I just threw that out there right off the top of my head. Hehehe. Sounds like a sweet curly-furred newf.

    So far all the Newf people say, I’d want another Newf. Hopeless, that’s what we are.

    Riö, what a terrible senseless accident.

    Drive, Fly, Walk, Run SAFE everyone.

    Melanie, Thanks for the additional info. Kelly and her family love the Newfs too. They are considering getting another. Only problems are shorter life span and in addition, they travel back and forth to their lake house about 3 weekends per month. With 3 kids, a bunny and two giant dogs, it makes for a very crowded SUV.

    Good morning all.
    We had a grand day yesterday. Walking the beach, finding some great shells, laughing at seagulls waddling along in their Chaplinesque way, totally unaware of the comical image they project.
    Late night sitting on the screen porch, replete with lobsters and frozen pudding ice cream, listening to the waves on the shore.
    Sleeping a calm and restful night.

    When I travel for work, AJ is under the mistaken impression that I stay in fancy hotels and eat five star meals, but it’s not true. Usually. When I was in the interior village earlier this week I stayed at a B&B with a wonderful local woman that I usually stay with when I travel there. I was invited to someone’s home for lunch one of my days there and had moose stew. It was wonderful. I was then invites back for dinner where we snacked on dried moose and even muktuk for dinner. I liked both much better than I anticipated. Dinner was salmon caught from their own camp; they gave me a jar of salmon to take home. Yum!

    Ond Wednesday night I stayed in a hotel room in anchorage that had a jetted bathtub with a deep end. Talk about heaven. Yesterday, I checked into where I’m staying in homer to find it has a hot run that has an ocean view. I didn’t get back until almost ten last night, but I got up this morning and am writing on this here blog from that there hot tub. A little relaxing before a long day of work and then travel never hurt anyone, did it?

    Hi Boone!

    I read Rio’s story this morning. How very, very sad. I worry about Rio’s friend driving to work and back. I hope she can eventually find a better job close to home. She is a smart lady and a company would be wise to hire her. We could all give her references.

    Or, Rio’s plan B would work. He could come stay with me whenever they are filming the last episodes of Breaking Bad. Mom would drive us to the location.

  14. B.Stover
    11:07 am on September 14th, 2012

    The hot tub sounds wonderful Rebecca.

  15. Siber-H
    11:08 am on September 14th, 2012

    Gus&BooBear are going to see Spence in Houston, right?

  16. SnowBella
    11:11 am on September 14th, 2012

    B: I can’t force myself to get out of it. Looking at the ocean from a safe distance—I think I might be related to SiberH—is wonderful. I wish I didn’t have to work so late last night so I could have enjoyed the hot tub more.

    Maybe Rio’s friend could be a dog handler. The pay is nonexistent—I’ve yet to see a check—and our dental plan is not to get cavities.

  17. Siber-H
    11:16 am on September 14th, 2012

    Labradoodles: Sometimes on Friday mornings I do a half day of doggie day care instead of the dog park. Mom says it give me a change of scenery. There is a one year old Labradoodle, Penny, there that has a crush on me. I like her and am nice to her but that is a far as it goes. At only one year old she is nuts but loveable. I am sure she will be a fine lady someday, but right now she is a goofy teenager.

    11:40 am on September 14th, 2012

    Rio: We just read your post of last night. A terrible tragedy made even more disturbing by striking so very close to home.
    Like Barb says, it is a solemn reminder to treasure each day and always hold our loved ones close.

    Howdy, Folks! Happy Friday!

    We are only on Chapter 3 of AFOC. Taking our time with it, because it is such a looooong time until the next one.

    Wose, we are very sorry to hear about the Prof’s wrist. ouch. At least he doesn’t have to walk on his, like we do!

    Barb and Maggie, we are sorry to hear about Joey. Mom and Pop say they feel especially sad about that news, as well as Stella’s news, nowadays. Why? We don’t know, altho we have a funny feeling…

    Bella, STAY IN THAT TUB with the ocean view !

    Rio, the news of that awful accident is horrible. We always worry about that kind of thing when Mom and Pop leave for their offices. Mom has an especially long commute, but she tells us she doesn’t take highways, as if that makes us feel any better. How awful for your neighbor’s wife and little boys. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them.

  20. OleyHowlers
    12:01 pm on September 14th, 2012

    We are getting ready to mail Wose’s book back to her, but before we do, does anyone else want to read it? Most of the story takes place in Northampton, MASS !!! The very place that Kat got to meet so many Plunderers!

  21. Masquers
    12:39 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Howlers: We are on chapter three also. Making it last…mak’n it last.
    Bella: Love hearing about your travels. A hot tub on the beach. What a treat for you!
    Are you returning home tonight?
    It’s a very nice day. The last of the evening chill is slowly disappearing with the rays of the morning sun.
    The plan is to take care of all items on the 2Do list today. So…with that in mind…..

  22. SnowBella
    12:41 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Masquers: I head home tonight after a week on the road. I will get to see AJ for a couple of days before he heads to southeast to pick up the team and bring them home!

  23. OleyHowlers
    12:45 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Book is mailed.

    The Team returns!!! Yay!

  24. SnowBella
    12:50 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Howlers: sometimes the thought comes to mind out of nowhere about how lucky I am to have met your mom, Kat, the Royal household, the Newf pack and SQPA this summer. Plus I got to meet CHH!

  25. Siber-H
    12:51 pm on September 14th, 2012

    If only those Snowhook dogs could talk and tell us about their adventures on the glacier with the tourists.
    hmmm Idea for a book, Rebecca?

  26. BearSpiritDog
    1:41 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Whitey-Lance and the Gang are coming home!

  27. OleyHowlers
    1:46 pm on September 14th, 2012

    And Aunt MollysMom, Bela! We cannot for the life of us figure out how we are related, but Kat swears that she is our aunt.

    Lets not count on ole W-L til he is sighted !

    spence is in Houston! My book (Staff’s also) will be signed tonight and soon, very soon I will finally have it in my paws hands.

  30. Masquers
    3:57 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Murder By The Book…A very kool name for a bookstore!

  31. Rose
    4:25 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Masquers, and Awesome Dawson: I am getting my signed, and pawtographed copy from that very same place! 🙂

  32. Kirby T. Penworthy
    4:27 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Hey, Rebecca, don’t forget you met my mom this summer, too!

  33. B.Stover
    5:04 pm on September 14th, 2012

    I was wondering where Kirby T. was.

  34. SnowBella
    5:23 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Yes! Two important Plunderers! KirbyTs mom and MPM. I am so very lucky. KirbyT, I’m jealous of your mom’s skin and MPM’a hair. Oh, how I wish I had both.

    Time served! I finished with my work early and was able to get on an earlier flight heading home! I am exhausted!

  35. Barb & Maggie
    5:26 pm on September 14th, 2012

    We had last year’s book signed at Murder By The Book. Great name.

    Barb must get ready to go out to dinner with Kelly’s clan tonight. They are meeting at Crandalls, a place know far and wide for their wonderful broasted chicken. Like grandma used to make, with biscuits, mashed potatoes, gravy and slaw. Not low calorie, but highly delish!

  36. SnowBella
    5:32 pm on September 14th, 2012

    B&M: What is this low calorie notion of which you speak? (Kromer tip to Professor B).

    Oh dear, I’m upset that KirbyT or MPM might think I didn’t enjoy meeting them or that it isn’t high on my favorite moments list, but both times are very special to me. Can I blame it on being exhausted?

  37. OleyHowlers
    5:39 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Exhaustion is for sure the reason. Plus, it is always dangerous to name names, because if you are anything like us, you are sure to forget a name or two. Or how about when making introductions? Mom could be introducing a bunch of people and go blank on someone’s name who she’s lnown all her life! Whats up with that?

  38. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:39 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Barb!…Did you ever get that birthday card that Beau picked out for you?…snort!

    SiberH!…We need to Talk!…snort!…You say your maw would drive us to the film location of Breaking Bad when they are shooting the last episodes?…wheeze!…I can hardly imagine anything more exciting as that!….Woooooo!!!

  39. BearSpiritDog
    5:53 pm on September 14th, 2012

    SnowBella: Good to hear you will be home soon…sleeping in your own warm soft bed.

    Barb&Magpie: Tonight’s dinner sounds delish. Who cares about calories when you can enjoy such a feast! After all…Birthday week celebrations only come once a year.

  40. Tupper and Gilly
    5:56 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Rio – would lasagna and garlic bread by the sea sound as exciting? If it does, blur on over. We have friends coming for dinner, and it will be finished off with a giant birthday cake.

  41. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:59 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Tupper!…I wish I could do tnat…sniff!…My friend just sent me a text on my little Go-Phone and said she was stopping on the way home to have a margarita with a friend from the busy-damned-place…grunt!…Unbelievable. She never takes me anymore…grumble!

    T&G, in which state is your beach?

  43. Melanie

    Hello All, First a picture from T&G!

    Viewing from a safe place.

  44. B.Stover
    6:19 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Besides the fact that it’s grammatically correct, I like the rhythm of “of which you speak.”

  45. OleyHowlers
    6:21 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Must impress the professor.

  46. Melanie
    6:22 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Rebecca, your travels and stays sound terrific. Moose yes, not sure about the mukluk. Quite sure the salmon would be a no.

    The next news is fixable, but sort of ends a poopy week in a poopy manner.
    The eye doc did the all the tests, and then started repeating the one where the BRIGHT light drills into your brain. This went on for about 20 minutes. I then had no sight because of the pupils being dilated and bright lights drilled into my brain. Talk about a headache.

    Upshot is I have to go back for more tests. It appears (and she’s not certain) that I have the beginning of glaucoma. Great (written in sarcastic font)

    She asked me if there was any in the family and the only one I could think of is someone who is family but not by blood. I figured that wouldn’t count. snicker.

    Turns out that my Aunt had it and a Cousin has it. Luckily, it is easily fixed with eye drops. But in November I go back for more drilling lights.

    I have spent the rest of the day in a darkened room. I am now just able to tolerate light.

    Glad this week is over.

  47. Barb & Maggie
    6:35 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Melanie, Take it easy girl!

    Rio, We had tried to load the card previously, but were not successful. Went back and tried it again and on the second try we got it. It is so cute, and perfect for Barb, who we all know is not a spring chicken! Thank you from the boat of us.

  48. Mollypop's Mom
    6:45 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Rebecca – since you like my hair, let’s trade. I was so envious of your beautiful curls.

    You’re going to look funny with gray hair.

  49. B.Stover
    6:53 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Mollypop’s Mom is making me laugh.

    My mom had glaucoma a was fine after using the eye drops.

  50. Kirby T. Penworthy
    6:54 pm on September 14th, 2012

    MPM: Not sure that Rebecca would want to give up her hair — Mom says that Rebecca plays with it alot (sorry B!) because it helps her focus. She has so much going on in her life that I’m not sure we want an unfocused Rebecca! But Mom’s not too fond of her own hair, so she’d be more than happy to trade with you!!!

  51. Melanie
    7:18 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Oh Dog, I am going upstairs. Patsy will be pleased.

    Anyway I can take my eyeballs out and wash them?

    Here is the end of Mr. Staffs terrible horrible no good week.

    “Got the (cholesterol)pill appt done. Said my gluclose was too high so he said to cut out potatoes, bread, and Mr. Goodbars, lose some weight, and check again in 6 months.”

    Back to my TOGA. See you later guys.

  54. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:38 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Dark!…My friend says she would love to spend her days in a dark room rather than go back to that busy-damned-place….snort!….It isn’t getting any better. The whole software conversion is a freakin’ nightmare and there is no way to go back to the old system….grump!… she says she hasn’t seen any heads rolling yet, but they will. Once the blame-game starts, the heads will roll!….gah!

  55. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:40 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Staff!…heh!snort!heh!…Cut out the Mr. Goodbars….snort!…As if!

  56. Princess Sam

    AbbieKat, does Mr. Staff consume mass quantities of that stuff? Does he hang out with the Coneheads?

  57. BearSpiritDog
    9:00 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Mr Staff: Our condolences as to the Mr Good(bye)bars. Sniff.

  58. Masquers
    9:08 pm on September 14th, 2012

    My dear Riö. Your friend has truly entered the Twilight Zone at the Busy Place. Any chance of a early retirement? Probably not. I fear she is much too young.
    And Mr Staff: Bread? They want you to cut out BREAD? The staff of Life? Well! I never!

  59. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:34 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Retirement!…No Maskers, she says she has a lot more years than two to work yet…grump!…”The Staff of Life”…heh!snort!heh!

    LizF: Cricket snoozing up top. I never saw that picture before, did I? So cute with his legs up in the air.
    Snowhook Bella: Considering you live in Alaska it is surprising how many Plunderers you’ve met…all that travelling can make you a tad forgetful but only because you have so much on your mind, not because those Plunderers are not memorable. We know they are.
    By the by…if one was to come up there for the Iditarod, would it be advisable to stay in Anchorage or Willow?
    Poor, poor Mr. Staff.

  61. Princess Sam
    9:39 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Dawson? Iditarod? That would be wow wowie.

  62. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:43 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Houston!….So if my timetables are right, Spencer should be giving his talk in Houston right now…snort!….Was Puss N’ Boots going to be there? Or their Maw??…heh!…Maybe we will get some photos of this big event..chuffle!

  63. Masquers
    9:44 pm on September 14th, 2012

    We will return tomorrow. Something about catching up on past shows and reading books…..
    g’Night all.

  64. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:45 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Time!…Oh wait! Houston is one hour ahead of Me and SiberH…grunt!…I bet Spencer has wrapped up his talk and book signing gig already…sniff!

  65. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:04 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Game!….SiberH will you be staying up watching the game with me tonight?…snort!…It should be starting here any minute now…sniff!….These west coast games are ruff! ruff!

  66. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:14 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Farm!…Guess what!?…snort!…Or did I tell youse guys this already? Beau is going to get to go out to the farm for the first time tomorrow…heh!…He will finally meet my pal Pepper. He better be on his best behavior, or else…grunt!…Beau doesn’t like riding in the car and this will be the longest ride he has ever taken with us before…sniff!…I most definitely will be in the shot-gun seat and he will be in the back seat all by himself…heh!heh!

  67. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:16 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Zowie!…The Rockies already have 4 runs on the Padres…heh!heh!…Wooooooooo!

  68. dawson
    10:16 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Princess Sam: I can’t really go to Alaska, I’m just dreaming. Even though I am 2nd closest to Snowhook, I would have to fly to Seattle first then back North. I looked for bus routes but Greyhound doesn’t go to Alaska. I could drive but that would be much much worse than even Rio’s friends commute to work. Sigh. So close and yet so far.

  69. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:21 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Dawson!….That would be purrrfect!…heh!…You could pick up Maskers in Seattle and then the two of youse could fly North To Alaska together….snort!snort!…. You just have to keep him away from the liquor on the long flight. Those Jazz musicians can get out of paw real quick….heh!

  70. Siber-H
    10:25 pm on September 14th, 2012

    EEK, Rio, I didn’t know there was a game tonight…probably a deliberate mental block on my part. It is a west coast game.

  71. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:27 pm on September 14th, 2012

    EEK?….heh!snort!…Easy SiberH, easy boy. The game is going great so far….Woooooo!… It is 5 ta Nuthing, Rockies are winning…chuffle!

  72. Siber-H
    10:27 pm on September 14th, 2012

    OMD The Rockies lead by 5 runs in the first inning. GO ROCKIES!!!

  73. Siber-H
    10:29 pm on September 14th, 2012

    We posted at the same time on the same subject.

  74. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:35 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Gasp!…Now the score is 5 ta 4…grunt!…This isn’t going exactly how I was planning it…wuffle!

  75. Siber-H
    10:46 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Double Gasp

  76. Siber-H
    11:13 pm on September 14th, 2012

    The Rockies lead by 2 runs now which is an improvement over the last time I posted. They can win this game.

    We are turning in.
    Night Everyone

  77. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:16 pm on September 14th, 2012

    Wimp!…He is leaving me all alone to watch this game…grunt!… It is only the 4th inning and yes, the Rockies are up by 2 runs…heh!heh!… Actually, I am not totally alone. My friend is still here, but she is really tired so who knows how long we will be up…sniff!

    Report!…I want to stay up and see if Puss N’ Boots reports on the Spencer sighting and signing…heh!…I hope they check in tonight…wuffle!
