No Post Today (Again!)

We’re still on the west coast. By the time we get up, everything has already happened. That’s our explanation for L.A.

Have a great weekend everybody!

Yesterday Spence dropped into Mysterious Galaxy, a great bookstore in Redondo Beach.

    Good Morning Everyone!

    I wonder how Spence is liking LA LA Land.

    I like that explanation for LA. Have fun Spence.

    Good morning SH and everyone.

    Why am I here ALL ALONE?

    How is Gilly today? We hope she is better.

    Hi Stover, Whew, I’m not alone any longer.

    I had Zoë out in the play yard with me and the dogs. We were reading and chatting. She had wanted to vacuum the pool and do this and that, but I said it was time to rest.

    It was great.

    Have not heard for YSAS. Hopefully he is still sleeping.

    GLAD was putting up screen shots of the video games she played as a child. She wrote something like I played this in middle school. I wrote on her post, I played jacks in middle school. Snicker

    Wöökie up top with his bow tie!

    The areas in drought have grown in the US.

    Hmmm . . the Pack was not reading and chatting. They were running and barking at cyclists. Our street is part of two different cycling routes through the area.

    You aren’t alone SH. When does your Kindle arrive?

    Melanie: I used to play jacks also using a golf ball rather than the rubber ball because it bounced better….fun.

    We had a lovely rain storm yesterday. Hope it rains more today.

    Wow, Jacks with a golf ball. I used a super ball if it was available. I think. That was long ago…

    Dawson used to sit on the front steps with the neighbor girl and play a card game called Spit. She was deadly at it. It involved speed and cunning. I never did get very good at it.

    Hope all the quilt dwellers feel better this a.m.

    I wonder if Spence in LaLa land has anything to do with movies? Do we know why he is out there? A book signing? Or….?

    Mr.Staff sent me that interactive map this last week. Scary!

    12:18 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Stover, The Kindle is suppose to arrive sometime during the second week in Aug.

    I am in severe drought. Gasp, Rio is in extreme drought.

    We are in severe drought also Mr.Husky.

    12:31 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Staff: I don’t think we know why Spence is in LA. Perhaps one of the weddings? If it had something to do with a movie that would be very interesting.

    I am cleaning out a very messy closet and came across a New Yorker article I saved from the March 27 1989 magazine. The great american Pie Expedition by Sue Hubbell. Fun to read. That was about one week after I married Mr.Staff and I must have thought I needed to know pies if I was going to live on a farm.

    Recipes are included. If you have a New Yorker subscription it is on their online archive.

    Must get back to the mess…

  15. Melanie
    1:28 pm on July 28th, 2012

    S.Stover, never thought to play jacks with a golf ball. I remember peeling golf balls to see what was inside.

    Staff, more power to you for even thinking of making pies. I will leave that to you and B.Stover.

    Good rain right now. A few rumbles but no lightning.

    Croatia put up a good fight in Women’s Basketball. USA did a good job there at the end.

    Hi everyone. We are checking in quickly between thunderstorms. The rain is perfect. There is enough so the ground is getting good and wet, but it isn’t coming in torrents so that it just runs off into the street.
    Little Gilly seems to be doing better. She has had two small meals of plain rice and does not seem to be in any distress.
    She is also high as a kite with the pain pills the v- e-t gave her. It’s very funny – if there is a noise outside she goes running to bark at it, but it is very half hearted- and then she plops over on her side and goes back to sleep. Sage still won’t let her out of his sight.
    And now – another thunderstorm cometh. Back under the bed we go!

    Drought!…No wonder we’ve been so hot!hot!hot! all spring and summer so far…sniff!…Although today seems rather cool in the high 90’s….wheeze!

    Swimming!…Someones been really busy all morning long and now its time to relax and watch some Olympic swimming…Woooooo!

  18. B.Stover
    2:44 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Thank you Staff. I used to get the New Yorker but don’t now. Think I’ll get a new subscription. I’ve made a note of the article.

    We are back. Left for Wisconsin to deliver chicks and hens. Nothing going on this morning on the blog, so we are now catching up.

    Glad Little Gilly is better today. We were worried.

    Barb says she remembers opening golf balls and using the little hard ball that was in the center as a jacks ball.

    Looks like we are getting an interest rate of 2.675 or better for our mortgage loan rate. Unbelievable!

    Really liked the opening ceremony last night. Loved seeing the parade of athletes. The giant baby was a bit strange tho.

    Our Gus has a sore on his side; he is on antibiotics to bring the swelling down and then surgery on Tuesday. He is an unhappy puppy.Claudie’s blood sugar is still high. They sent a blood test in to check for something.

    We are enjoying the Chinese teenagers. There are 8 girls staying with 4 families and so we all take turns ferrying them around. All the girls are in Fresno and mom is meeting them later for a movie. Ice Age in 3D!

    I am keeping the quilt dwellers in my prayers also!

  21. Tupper and Gilly
    3:33 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Gilly is up top! Thats got to be a good sign.
    The giant baby was indeed strange – and more than just a tad creepy.
    Seem to have circling thunderstorms here. It will all be quiet, then it all starts up again. Poor Callie is a nervous wreck. Tupper is being very clingy. Gilly is just looking up at the sky, going, ” wow man – look at the pretty colors” – then she goes back to sleep.

    Gilleee!…heh!snort!heh!…She’s been to the desert on a horse with no name….sneeze!

    Question!….My friend has a question for youse guys who buy stuff from the Snowhook Boutique….sniff!…Because she has a very hard time pricing her little twirled paper things, she is wondering how it would work if after the Items are put out on the shelves the person who wants the Item will email Rebecca and say I want the “Owl” and I will make a donation of $$$’s to Snowhook for it instead of paying a “set” price. Now if Rebecca gets 2 emails and one of them wants to donate 10.00 and the other one wants to donate 15.00, then Rebecca has the authority to decide who will get the twirled paper item…heh!heh!…Let me know what you think about this please…wuffle!

    Hey!…Who wants to see some penquins?…snort!…These little guys will be on the shelf of the Boutique one day soon…heh!…So keep checking the Store. Also, we are in desperate need of donated Items again. The shelves are bare and Rebecca will be laying off some of her staff soon as there is not enough work to keep everyone busy…grunt!…Please donate what you can!!…snort!

  23. c.hobbit-harris
    4:46 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Penguins are perfect. Pricing is hard but having to choose between “donations” is hard for the buyer. In an auction one knows how much to go up to get what you want but not if you are just to email what you are willing to pay and hope for the best outcome. Hmmmm….pondering.

  24. Masquers
    4:53 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Gillyflower is making good progress and, as soon as there is an all clear from Sage, we will all breathe a tad easier.
    Kool penguins, Riö.
    About your idea: it sounds like an auction without a starting bid, but I like it.
    Siber: Why is it taking so long for Amazon to send your Kindle? Don’t you have Prime?

  25. Mollypop's Mom
    4:55 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Talking about auctions – since my stuff didn’t make it in, I’m ready for the next auction. This is one side of a mug.

  26. Mollypop's Mom
    4:56 pm on July 28th, 2012

    This is the other side.

  27. Mollypop's Mom
    4:57 pm on July 28th, 2012

    These are measuring cups and spoons.

  28. B.Stover
    4:59 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Rio: I like the penguins. I don’t think that your friend charges enough for her creations. Why not put a “suggested price” for the boutique.

  29. Masquers
    5:02 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Molly’s Mom: Nice items!
    There will be another exchange of computers. This one struggles to come back on after shutting down.

  30. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:09 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Cone!….HA!..heh!snort!heh!….Oh, I love that mug. I am laughing so hard it hurts…chorkel!wheeze!

  31. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:12 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Idea!…I guess my friend is only suggesting this because it seems like more than one person usually wants some twirled paper, so having them “donate” or “bid” for the item seems to make sense….snort!…This may become too time intensive for Rebecca though. She is the one who would have to keep track of everything….grunt!…Unless someone comes up with another bright idea, we will just go back to trying to price her items…((((sigh))))

  32. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:14 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Stover!…Explain what you mean by “suggested price” regarding the Boutique…sniff!

  33. B.Stover
    5:33 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Rio: The suggested price would be similar to a starting bid. You could also give a deadline for “bidding” on the item…say one week. Perhaps Rebecca could put the buyer’s bid on the item in the boutique. If a new buyer wanted to pay more than the current “bid”, he/she would let Rebecca know. After the deadline is up Rebecca could let the highest bidder know.

  34. Princess Sam
    5:36 pm on July 28th, 2012

    B., i agree Rio’s friend’s art is priced too low. Also, it is beautifully framed!

  35. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:41 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Auction!…Hmmm, as part of Auction Central, I know how much work this becomes especially if there are several items (and there are) and many people are bidding (and there will be)….snort!…I won’t get into detail why, but Rebecca would need Auction Central to control this. Especially because she has two full-time jobs. The Kennel being one then the other thing she does all day, whatever that is…grunt!

    Maximise!… I am just trying to figure out a way to maximise the earnings that the Store can generate for the Kennel and the A-Team…sniff!…You guys have to help though. We need more donations. Those Items Mollys Mom put up are excellant examples of things that would sell quickly at the Store, or next Auction…heh!

    The computer technician is here…..

  37. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:43 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Penguins!…I like the penguins because it looks like the two on the right are going to get in to a scuffle and the one on the left looks like he is going to try and stop it…heh!heh!

  38. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:44 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Maskers!…heh!snort!heh!…You are in big trouble pal if that is your IT guy…chorkel!

  39. Melanie
    6:10 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Riö, love the penguins. I thought the two were going to do their march, but the other one was saying not that way.

    Dog, the Pack is in TROUBLE. Zoe was fixing their dinner and left the dog stew in the sink to do something for Dan. She got back and the pan was out of the sink. Stew everywhere. Rose was trying to get everyone in trouble, but Zoë saw that all of them downstairs had stew on their noses. Except Patsy. She and I were taking a nap.

  40. Barb & Maggie
    6:28 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Oh my, the Newfies can really make a mess. And just think, Barb was “miffed” cuz I stole a measly stick of butter off the counter and ate it. She said it was her last stick, plus she was worried about me greasing my insides, but never fear, it all worked out OK.

    We agree that Rio’s friend does not charge enough for her works. I like the idea of a starting price, or suggested price. Could someone then bid more if they wanted to?

  41. Siber-H
    6:31 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Rio, I am also in agreement that yur friend doesn’t charge enough for her art. Whatever you guys decide to do about putting the items in the Store up for sale is fine with me.

    Masquers, Yes, I have Amazon Prime, but I don’t know what is taking the Kindle so long to get here.

    The mug is funny.
    That Kat is scary. but not as acary as a two-legged technician.

  42. Siber-H
    6:40 pm on July 28th, 2012

    gah, very bad typing up there. My only excuse is someone was talking to me while I was typing.

  43. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:50 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Prices!…Are going UP!UP!UP!…heh!heh!

  44. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:51 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Melanie!…I see the March too! And the big guy stopping them…chorkel!…Penguins have many stories…sniff!

  45. Rose
    7:27 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Worse here!

    Rio! I absolutely love your friend’s penquins! She does not charge enough for her art. From your posts, we know she puts a lot of time, work, and effort into her projects. Every item is beautifully framed, and packed extremely well.

    Happy to here that Gilly is feeling better, even though she is a little high, high, high.

    BooBear: What is the latest on Gus?

    Rebecca, how is Tenz?

    Hopefully, everyone under the quilt will be tip-top soon.

    Watching the Yankee game here.

    Missed one of my favorite movies on Turner Classics this afternoon— The Best Year’s of Our Lives. Have any of youse guys seen it?

    Hello Everybody. None of us could post today, because Mom my and Daddy were off paintingtheir local office and believe it or not, Mommy had our iPaw in her big purse.
    It was a nice, relaxing day today for Buddy and me. All the Howlers except Sasha were outside waiting for Them to return. We spent all day watching out the window at a horse who got loose and kept wandering around insifpde the barn. Of course it was Annie (who else?).
    Now the storms have moved back in, so all of the Howlers plus Mommy and Daddy are indoors woth me me me.

  51. T.C.
    8:29 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Mommy did something to my iPaw to cause all those darn typos.

    8:57 pm on July 28th, 2012

    MagPie, very glad that everything “came out okay”. snort!

    T.C. Sounds like you had a great day. Not sure what “insifpde” is, but it sounds cool.

    Heard from YSAS around 5:30 or so. He had just gotten up. He went to work as a bootlegger unloading crates from boats. He started at 5:30 pm and ended at 6:30 am. He is taking Sunday and Monday off.

    Cool and still some showers. Chance of storms 60% tonight.


  53. T.C.
    9:13 pm on July 28th, 2012

    YSAS is alive???? OMC! Is he a zombie? A vampire?

    Insifpde is a special way that horses behave inside the barn, Melanie. Jeez! Don’t you know nothing about a horse farm?

  54. Riö –The Evil Pug
    9:37 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Sports!…I have so many sports options to watch it is boggling my flat head…heh!…Right not we are watching the Rockies game – they are losing…hmmmphf!…So now I can turn the channel and watch the Summer Olympics…heh!heh!…Is this great or what!…Wooooo!

    Dead!…I hope Clarkson made buckooo bucks playing dead the other day…snort!…If I could make some cash doing that I would give it a shot…sniff!….Otherwise, I don’t do tricks for anyone…grunt!

  56. Riö –The Evil Pug
    9:41 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Bah!…Beach volleyball…sniff!…We are going back to the Rockies vs Cincinnati…sneeze!…I think they will be showing Phelps swimming at some point. And don’t tell me who won – I covered my ears and eyes during the news so I would be surprised tonight….grunt!

    10:33 pm on July 28th, 2012

  59. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:38 pm on July 28th, 2012

    Rio: Poor guy should have retired while he was ahead.

    Since we can’t view the Olympics we are off to read here too.
