    Good Morning All!

    Back to the busy place. 🙁

    I will look forward to re-reading AFOC!

    Rio! I want to hear the Mother Bogar story!!

    OHS: Michael Clarke Duncan had a heart atack in July, from which he never recovered.

    hmmm, I always thought that Admin would have also been the editor. Pondering his job . .

    Had our first Hospice volunteer. Nice guy. Used to write and now is in Divinity school. Sort of opposite of Dan! They had a good time. And Zoë and I got to breath.

    Getting both Kindle and the Hardcover of AFOC. When the audio comes out going to get it for OTAS.

    Morning Rose!

    Good Morning Melanie!

    I’m glad things went well with the hospice guy. Can you ask for him specifically, or does this work on a rotating basis?

    AFOC is waiting for me on my nook, and I’ll be buying the hardcopy too!

    Good morning! Mom says that she and Gus and Boo Bear’s mom have a Big Thing in common.

    We here do not like Blue Jays. Mom says they are bad, and when she sees them on her feeders, she scolds them until they leave. Not sure what thats about but something to do with her high school years and her beloved cardinals.

    Who is sending us a book? Was that Bear? Any idea when it will be arriving? Mom does not trust the Kat.

    Good morning everyone. We just wanted to thank everyone for the birthday greetings yesterday and especially, Rio, Beau (who knew what talent that guy has) and their friend for the very special birthday card. (I did think I detected a bit of harmonica in the background though.) Still lots of rain here expected today and likely for a few more days. But hopefully by the end of the week it will be gone.

    I’m looking forward to reading it also.

    Melanie: I’m glad the Hospice guy is working out.

    Good morning all.

    OHs: I think the book should be coming from Awesome Dawson, if I am not mistaken.

    Grump!…Well, my friend left for the busy-place this morning (again)…snort! …She said she might be home early because she might quit today…heh!heh!… I hope so!

    Good morning. Sammie asked me to put this picture in Friends of Chet. She thinks she’s a big college girl in this sweater.

  10. Melanie
    10:44 am on September 4th, 2012

    She is a Big College Girl! Big dogs also come in little packages.

    Having trouble with the electrical line the computer is on. Shucks.

    Bella, can around 10 of your Pack blur AJ down here to do some electrical work?

    Staff: Just went to last night’s link…John and Shoep are an amazing pair.

    Rio: Our thoughts on the Season 5 finale? We all know Hank is obsessed with this case and will open any “can” to solve it, even if it’s filled with worms. In addition…a couple of loose ends in the background…for instance Skyler’s former employer and friend, Ted. And…can Lydia really be trusted? In one scene a couple of weeks ago she was talking on the phone to someone…who? During the last scenes in the show we kept waiting for the other shoe to drop…and it kinda did. Now we have to wait until next summer for the last episodes.

    O.Howlers: As Wose said, the book is indeed coming from the Awesome One.

    Dawson: Did you get a Windows update? We are having the same problem with teeny tiny print on this “new” computer.

  12. Tupper and Gilly
    11:12 am on September 4th, 2012

    Morning all.
    Sammie – you are the perfect Sweater Girl.

    Wookie – we saw on the late news the story of the Great Rain in DC with flooded streets and cars buried underwater. We are hoping that you and your family are in a safe, higher place.

    11:24 am on September 4th, 2012

    Admin: You are a man of few words today.
    T&G: When do you head to the seashore? The lobster is calling your name…well…your mama and dad’s anyway.
    Melanie: Good to hear the Hospice people are working out so well.
    About your dinner last night…how do you prepare the fried green tomatoes?
    Sammie: Every time I see you in your college sweater, or running with your girl, it reminds me of Elle’s little dog in Legally Blonde.

    11:39 am on September 4th, 2012

    There’s a Zippy in the new Friends of Chet – a 100+ pounder. Me too.
    And a Bootchie that digs holes like SiberH. Have fun off the grid, Siber…oh…he can’t hear me. Heh.
    OHowlers: The book should get there yesterday!
    BearSpiritDog: I fixed the small print! Pressed the Control button and the + button several times and Voila!
    Princess Sam: You are even more irresistible than normal in you school sweater!
    Melanie: I’m glad you and Zoe got a chance to breathe. You were both starting to turn blue.

    Dawson and Bear: Regarding the size lettering on the screen–At the bottom of my computer screen on the right there is a small magnifying glass symbol and arrow. I press that and can make the print larger. You can keep it on the larger size also. (This may just be a feature on Toshiba…I’m not sure.)

    Sam the sweater girl. Love it!

    12:21 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Sammie you are just adorable in your college girl sweater!!!!

    12:41 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Abbie – gee, thanks! Just what the Hernbs need is ANOTHER way to be annoying!

    We all get to leave for the beach on MONDAY!!! Thats just 5 1/2 days away!

  20. Masquers
    12:45 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Heh, heh. Kool kat videos, Abbie.
    Well, our friend Siber is off to the mountains today.
    Hope he and his family have a great vacation.

    Dawson, Mom called and told Meash to tie down Kat. Meashka will not take that job on.

    B & Dawson: We were able to enlarge the text by going to the computer control panel to adjust the text size (which only seems to take care of part of the problem) then pressing ctrl and scrolling up with the mouse for the rest. Our big issue is with the AOL software which doesn’t work with our version of Windows 7 Ultimate. In addition, we discovered this computer is really low on memory, which also needs to be addressed.

    Spence: Admin? Hello? How is it possible you haven’t read A Fistful of Collars yet?

  24. Melanie
    1:24 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Sooo, Spence, What is Admin’s job anyway? It’s definitely not Editor!

  25. B.Stover
    1:33 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Spence: I think Admin is just pulling your leg.

  26. Barb & Maggie
    2:10 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Hello everyone. Remember when Barb said she was feeling a little under the weather yesterday? Well last night that turned into ALOT! This virus/cold/fever is going around the schools. Barb had to reschedule her babysitting for this afternoon, and crawl deep under the quilt. Only good thing is that it only last a couple of days. Can’t sit up any longer. BBL

  27. Masquers
    2:11 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Heh, heh. That is a good question, Chet.
    We think B is right. Do I see a “tongue in cheek”?

  28. BearSpiritDog
    2:35 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Magpie: Oh, no! First Macy’s mom, now Barb. She must be exhausted from making the Big Move and susceptible to catching any bug that comes around. Rest snug under the Quilt until you are feeling tip top once again.

    SnowBella: Yesterday was the deadline. Is The Cabin In The Woods complete? Sounds like Rio’s Friend is ready for a change.

    Yesterday we took a train to the city so we could walk Yuji in style. Headed to Madison Square Park, which has a nice dog run. When we got to the gate, we saw a bunch of people flocking around with cameras. Was some famous person there showing off their dog. No, just a totally lovable, sleepy-eyed bulldog puppy. Who needs movie stars?

  31. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:34 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Puppy!…My friend says Pug Puppies are the absolute cutest, but then suddenly they’re not…grunt!

  32. OleyHowlers
    6:01 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Awww, we love bulldog puppies (but not as much as husky puppies).

    I Thought You Were Dead…has arrived!!!! Meashka told the mailman to put it inside the mailbox, rather than leaving it in the barn, and like all men he did as she commanded. We can’t wait until Mom reads ir to us. (not that we can’t read…she just gets such a kick out of reading to us!). Now we must make her put aside The Civil War book she has been reading all summer, so we can read something exciting.

  33. Melanie
    6:08 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Puppies trump Famous people ALL THE TIME!

    Barb, feel better.

    Need some Plunderer good thoughts, vibes and prayers. OTAS has quit where he’s been for 6 years. The atmosphere at the place had become toxic.
    I don’t know what his next step will be, but he could use some good energy.

    Haven’t heard from him yet. Waiting.

    GLAD has a painting on the cover of a magazine!

  34. Mollypop's Mom

    Here’s Cousin Emma the Pug’s puppy picture. She was 8 weeks old.

  35. Mollypop's Mom
    6:10 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Then she got soooo tired.

  36. OleyHowlers
    6:14 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Barb, rest. Moves cause stress, leaving you susceptible to any bug that crosses your path.

  37. Wose
    6:35 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Awww, a cute bulldog puppy, and the little puglet is just adorable!

    Rio, does your friend have pictures of you when you were just a puglet?

    OHs: I hope youse guys and your mom enjoy the book!

    Barb, tuck yourself under the quilt, and get better soon!

    Macy’s Mom, I hope you are feeling better!

  38. Wose

    7:16 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Puglet!…There were no digital kameras around when I was a puglet…snort!…So sorry, Rose….heh!…My friend thinks lil’ Emma The Pug is the cutest thing ever!…gruffle!…Its a good thing pug-pups are very expensive or I would be up to my knees in youngsters…grumble!…Bad enough Beau is still around…wheeze!

  40. Beau - The Black Pug
    7:18 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Sneeze!… I was free. My family gave me away…sniffle!…But I’m okay with it now…sneeze!

  41. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:19 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Free!…I always say, you get what you pay for….grunt!

    7:32 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Good for OTAS to get out of that environment. There must be a place looking for someone with his considerable talents. And congratulations to GLAD on her cover. Better get your requests in soon because demand for her drawings is going up, up, up!
    They are sooo lovable, especially little Emma.

  43. Melanie
    7:42 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Yes, Dawson. Did you have a good bike trip? It’s finally raining here. We’ve been caught in a low cloud all day and finally RAIN!

    GLAD is on the cover the Journal of American Veterinary Medical Association

    8:02 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Baby pictures! Little Bulldawgs and Puglets!
    Emma is adorable!

    Melanie: Strong Positive Thoughts going out to OTAS for a quick turn-a-round on the job front. We know that good things are on the way. It was a good decision to leave that place. Working in a bad environment is absolutely draining to mind, body and spirit.
    GLAD’s painting on the cover of JAVMA. How exciting!

  46. BearSpiritDog
    8:05 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Melanie! We posted simultaneously and now you’re gone. sniff.

  47. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:12 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Draining!…That’s how my friend feels every day, drained…sniff!…She is so unhappy right now. But there is nothing else open that she can appy for in other depts…snort!…I’m glad Melanies older son is Free! Free At Last!…snuff!

  48. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:14 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Rain!…No Rain here…grunt!….It’s too hot to walk right now, so that is a blessing….burp!…Cus I just cleaned out my bowl…gurgle!

  49. Barb & Maggie
    8:24 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Barb is reading a Civil War book too, but it is taking her a long time. It is White Doves at Morning by James Lee Burke. He has won some Edgar awards for crime mystery. Never have read his fiction before. Any one else familair with his works?

    Have to go lay down again. We think things will be much better tomorrow. Night all.

  50. BearSpiritDog
    8:47 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Barb feel better.

    O.Howlers: Can’t wait to hear what you all think of the book!

    Me too. Now signing off for the day to eat din-din and watch the latest episode of Grimm – Bear

    (note to Rio) If you go to amc/breakingbad website there are some interesting videos and an interview with Jonathan Banks…don’t know if it is the same one B posted a while back… but check it out.)

  51. OleyHowlers
    8:53 pm on September 4th, 2012

    We wanted to let youse know that for the third Monday in a row, Shiek was sick. How wierd is that? He gives new meaning to “I hate Mondays”.

    We are busy watching t.v. now…talk to youse tomorrow.

  52. dawson
    8:55 pm on September 4th, 2012

    The eyes have it!
    GLAD’s cover art makes me want to give that doggie some ear scritches.
    Rio: Here is wishing for you a job that is just around the corner with an awesome boss. Hey! When you move up to the little cabin maybe you can get a job from Rebecca’s bosses. They are the best!
    Hope the sick ones feel better real soon.

  53. Princess Sam
    9:39 pm on September 4th, 2012

    OHowlers, does Shiek party hearty on weekends? A lot of horsing around?

  54. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:58 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Sammie!…I suspect thats what you will be doing while you are visiting that college…heh!heh!…Don’t spill beer on yer sweater…snort!

  55. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:59 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Wheeze!…We are home from our walk just in time to see the 8th and 9th innings…cough!…The Rockies are ahead 4 to Nuthing….Woooooo!….We are playing the Braves, right?…heh!

  56. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:01 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Pancheako!….Make that 5 ta Nuthing! Pancheako strikes again!….Woooooo!

  57. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:03 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Excuse!…Me!…Now it is 6 ta Nuthing….chorkel!

  58. SnowBella
    10:12 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Home! I just want to go home after a long day, no lunch and a migraine, but traffic is at a stand still. I pulled off the highway to tend to my stomach and pass the time.

    The cabin did not get finished last night, but we should finish it tomorrow. She said she is moving in on Thursday now. Whew! That gave us the extra time we need. I haven’t quite figured out how to tell her about the pugs that will be moving in with Friend in tow.

    Melanie: The quilt fits well over broad shoulders just fine. Tenzing wants to Leno if OTAS likes Slim Jims. Congrats to GLAD!

    B&M and Macy: Tenzing poses the same question to you—thumbs up on the slim Jims? He seems to have extra on paw and insists that all quilt dwellers want meat in stick form.

  59. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:18 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Rebecca!…What do you mean “She” is moving in?…grunt!…Whats this She business?….sniff!…I’m all packed and my little knapsack is waiting by the door for someone to put it in the Beaus-mobile….grunt!… Beau is not packed and neither is my friend…grumble! ….Do I have to do everything around here?…sniff!

  60. SnowBella
    10:21 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Rio: It must be a typo.

  61. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:22 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Highway!…Rebecca, do you think there are Moose on the highway holding up traffic?…grunt!…I can just picture a herd of them with pantyhose over their heads and guns in their paws yelling at the commuters, “Your Slim Jims or your life!”….heh!

  62. SnowBella
    10:27 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Rio: Your guess is good as mine as to why traffic is stopped. I inched to the exit which was a few yards away so I could stop and get something to eat. Sometimes I can delay a full migraine if I can get some food in my belly. We are expecting a big storm tonight with heavy rains and 80 mph winds in some places–not in Willow.

  63. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:31 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Food!…Why did you skip lunch Rebecca?…sniff!…You know it is the most important meal of the day, along with breakfast, snacks and of course supper…snort!

    WIN!…Rockies win at Atlanta!…heh!…That hasn’t happened in years and years…snort!snort!…A shut-out too! How awesome is that? SiberH will be kicking himself for missing this game…chuffle!…I wander if they made it to Colorado yet?…grunt!

  64. SnowBella
    10:34 pm on September 4th, 2012

    It was a busy day where my schedule was booked solid. Trust me, I couldn’t agree more with each of those meals you listed being the most important of the day. Tenzing and I have similar appetites.

  65. SnowBella
    10:36 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Rio: I am going to try and get back on he road now. Likely you will be asleep in your warm, soft bed with all your baseball toys by the time I get home. So, good night my pug friend. Snort!

  66. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:36 pm on September 4th, 2012

    Moving!…Rebecca, what kind of food did you buy at that Exit?…sniff!… I hope you are making wise choices….wuffle!

  67. Gus & BooBear
    12:02 am on September 5th, 2012

    Sammie, love the sweater look. Is your fur growing out? It didn’t look shorn in the pic. A very good look for you!

    Hope everyone feels better soon.

  68. Gus & BooBear
    12:04 am on September 5th, 2012

    And special good thoughts for OTAS! He’s too young to get stuck at a job that isn’t right for him. And congrats to GLAD…fantastic painting on the cover. She and OTAS are a very talented couple.

  69. AbbietheKitty
    12:40 am on September 5th, 2012

    Good luck going to OTAS. But he has started his good luck by leaving the bad place.

    Barb and Macy, hope you feel better soon.

    GLAD, Looking Good!

    Drive safe Rebecca, There was a deer car collision in a little town near us tonight. We had a traffic jam and I had to go the other way. At least there is another way!

    Night all.

    He died in 1985 but this very personal museum can be a lasting reminder
    of the very remarkable man. So far, reactions on the acquisition, as well as for the announcement from the new business model, happen to
    be mixed, but only time will tell whether or not a revamped
