Op Cit, Etc.

Spence is on the phone to Admin, back home by himself.

“How’s Santa Fe?” Admin says. “Always wanted to see it.”

“Really nice,” says Spence. “And yesterday I dropped into this very nice bookstore called Op Cit. It’s just a few doors from a witch store, so you can knock off a lot of your shopping needs at once.”

“You’re having fun.”

“Um, yes.”

“Guess I’ll go mow the lawn again.”

Welcome know-it-all dude.

    Welcome to NM Spence! Santa Fe is a unique place. They call it “The City Different” and it is.

    Rio, I didn’t know Santa Fe had a witch store but it doesn’t surprise me. Mom doesn’t recognize the name of the bookstore either, but it has been years since she has been to Santa Fe. When we go to Colorado, we drive around Santa Fe.

    We hope Spence has gotten the chance to visit the mountains in SW Colorado he wrote about in The Dog Who Knew Too Much. He also mentioned Durango, CO in that book. We love Durango, but we love the San Juan Mountains more.

    A bit of useless trivia…Molly the Husky’s mom once worked for Shirley Maclain in Santa Fe.

    Please start baking pies Stover:

    Rio, The Rockies have fired their pitching coach of 10 years, but they gave him another job in the organization.
    I’m still laughing about Rio’s use of the term, baseball sadists, last night.

    Having never been in a witch store, I am guessing on this one Stover. The witches need herbs, charms, potions, books, and so forth in order to practice their witchcraft. Yes, there are people claiming to be modern day witches in NM. We even see bumper stickers supporting witchcraft.

    I’m going to be leaving for the first leg of my Big Trip. I’m going to Sam’s house first and will stay overnight tonight. Tomorrow I will have an easy 6-hour drive taking the I-90 most of the way.

    Rio: I had a blast with KirbyTs mom, but I assure you she didn’t have any fun at all. She was polite enough to spend time with me and nod while I talked, but mostly we stared at each other and blinked.

    Don’t we have a couple of special birthdays this week?

    Bee. Mama says Spencer shouldn’t buy any witches. We already have enough.
    Oh wait….the ones we have start with “B”

    Anyway – Mama and Melanie are sitting at a Dunkin Donuts at the airport. Rebecca is still in Philadelphia. Seems her plane needed a new part and all the passengers have to chew enough bubble gum to stick it onto the plane.

    Hopefully she will be here soon.
    And there is a newspaper article about the Big Event on the FRONT PAGE of the Arts and Living section of today’s paper. It is listed as one of the “picks” for weekend entertainment. Woohooo

    Hello everyone! Barb’s brains are scrambled today, due to excitement over her offer. It is now accepted, and closing will be Aug 20th. Barb does not think the buyer wants the 2 goats. Bummer.

    Happy Birthday SQ/PA! Also isn’t Dan coming home today? How can Melanie be at the airport?

    Barb, I have been hoping you’d show up on the blog with that good news! We are happy for you! Natasha has done it again, hasn’t she.

    Rio, I had the same thought about Spence being so close. I could never find him in Santa Fe. I am not a bloodhound and the city is crawling with tourists this time of year. I told mom if she would just drive me up there and walk me around, if Spence saw me, he’s know it was me. I would be the only Siber in Santa Fe wearing an Iditarod tag.

    Golinka!….How is Melanie feeling today?…snort!

  34. Siber-H
    12:18 pm on June 28th, 2012

    Stover, I think Rio’s use of the term, baseball sadist, was directed at those, especially Wookie, who was rubbing in the fact that his team was slaughtering the Rockies.

    Stover again, I think most of our witches here would say they practice white witchcraft instead of the evil arts. They call white witchcraft, Wicca, I believe. It would be healing, falling in love, fortune telling, welcoming the summer solstice…all harmless stuff.

  35. Siber-H
    12:26 pm on June 28th, 2012

    Maybe white witchcraft is called Wiccan. I am not sure. Do you guys think I could get one of those white witches to cast a spell that would convince Natasha we are just the best of friends.
    Stover, that is an example of something a white witch would do, but I am serious about this.

    Siber, Hate to throw this out there but Barb’s daughter Shannon, who is the city dweller, is into Wicca. She says it is earth based, nature based, and has lots of good, environmentally friendly beliefs.

    Staff, Barb bought this property in the fall of 2004, when she was still working as an insurance agent. The property had been in the same family for about 50 years, and was very rundown. She worked on it and had people working on it till she moved in, in the spring of 2006. Here is a pic.

    Barb, you only added to what I said about Wicca. umm I would guarantee you we have more extremes in Northern New Mexico.
    Me, I don’t have a New Age bone in my canine body.

    We have always loved Barb’s house. She showed us a picture of it a long time ago.
    Barb? Do you know when the house was built?

  44. Barb & Maggie
    1:30 pm on June 28th, 2012

    Siber, It was built right after the turn of the century – last century. Guess would be 1905.

    Barb and Maggie — that is terrific news, although you are leaving a very beautiful house.

    SQ/PA — Happy, happy birthday. No better place to spend it than in the Land of Enchantment.

    For inquiring minds, the flight from Philadelphia to Western Massachusetts should be about an hour, give or take a few minutes.

    Rio, baseball sadists, hmmm. Anyways, the Rockies are still near and dear to my heart, whenever they play anyone other than the Nationals. And I still wear my Rockies cap whenever I can.

  51. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:32 pm on June 28th, 2012

    Wookie!…SiberH was completely wrong when he suggested that the new term I used last night, “Baseball Sadists”, was directed at you…snort!…At the time I was thinking of all those out there, and you know who you are, who love to see the Rockies and their fans suffer like we have been this Spring and Summer so far…grunt!…Not You Agent Wookie.

    3:19 pm on June 28th, 2012

    Youse guys are right, it is a very nice, charming old house, but it is time to move on. Getting to be a bit much to take care of all alone, and then there are all those grand kids. Barb says the only state she will always be in is the state of flux, whatever that means. I think that means she never gets too attached to her surroundings, only people and companions (like ME ME ME)and doesn’t look back too often when she moves on down the road of life.

  59. Basil and Sage

    Dawson, The goaties are most likely not going with us, but we are going to try to smuggle Peaches and a few of her closest friends into our new backyard, wherever that might be. Kim our go-to goat/chicken friend will take Sandy and Ingrid back if need be.

    Barb’s son Josh says for her to get ready for a busy life, because they want her to babysit 1 day per week for Lyla and Jack, and work at the bike shop 1 day per week. Lyla is smart and quiet at almost 6, and Jackson, at age 3 is a balls-out wild man.

    Barb and Maggie: Sure. I’ll take the blame for your Double Dawson. Why not? I can relate to the energy of the 3 year old two legged. Bijou Margaret does not stop talking from wake up time in the morning until bedtime.

  83. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    5:37 pm on June 28th, 2012

    Barb and Maggie: The Bloody Butchers are okay. They are a little smaller than we thought, with good flavor but perhaps a bit more acidic that we prefer. We would probably rate them about a 5 or 6 on a scale of 10. Although they are probably still a couple of weeks or more away from starting to ripen (although our 101 degree forecast for tomorrow may accelerate things), the two Cherokee Purple plants are really going gangbusters and have produced a lot of lucious-potential tomatoes already. Those were our favorite from last year and we are really looking forward to them this year as well.

    Rio — I see that Colorado just scored again so I think you are now up 10-9, but the way this game is going it could be a 21-20 nailbiter by the time it is done.

  84. Barb & Maggie
    5:50 pm on June 28th, 2012

    Wookie, We would agree with you, the Cherokee Purple was one of our favs too. Couldn’t get it this year, as they were sold out. Hoping the Black Krim will be close. Our opinion of the BB is the same. Was small, and had a good but not great taste.

    Paul Robeson plants are doing great, and has always been one of our top 3. Rich, earthy and smokey flavor.

    The Box Car Willie and Black Krim both have several good size tomatoes set, so we are anxious to sample those.

    Before I started staying with the parents I had a year where I grew the Cherokee Purple and the Brandywine. I liked them both, but the Cherokee Purple was a top 10. I would give the Brandywine an 8. One year we bought one called a Pineapple Tomato. I’d give that one a 4.

    Mr.Staff swears by the Super Fantastic. It grows well for us and the fruits are not too large (Brandywine) or too small. But it is not an heirloom. It is new.

    Hey, y’all! Mom’s back from her trip to the Big City! Sorry we didn’t let everyone know what was happening, but Mom wanted to make sure she could get vacation time at work and that she’d be able to get a room at Rebecca’s hotel. So we were going to reveal the big surprise on Tuesday night, but then The Royals told about their friend’s death, so Mom decided not to do it then. And then she was going to do it on Wednesday morning, but then she was running around like a chicken with her head cut off (sorry B&M!), and she just didn’t have time.

    Mom says getting together with Rebecca was great! She was a little worried that she would drive there — four-plus hours each way — and then they would just and stare at each other and wouldn’t be able to think of anything to say. But not to worry! They laughed and talked for about eight hours straight — stopping just long enough to watch a movie at the Coke tour and eat a few bites at the restaurant. In fact, they talked so long at the restaurant that they were astonished to see they were the only customers there, and the busboys were sweeping up! I just wish she would have smuggled me into the hotel in her suitcase like I asked her to!

    Rebecca: Mom says those tummies she gave me were actually from you — thanks! Just wish I could have been there to get them in person — or maybe I should say in dog!!! You saw the pictures of me standing next to the pugs — don’t you think I would have fit just right in her suitcase???

    Kirby, it sounds like your mom and Rebecca had a great time getting to know each other in person. Our mom is so excited to meet so many Plunderers but she had such a hectic week that she is afraid she will be falling asleep early and then youse will know her for the party pooper she is. But so what? She will have met some Plunderers! And the Amazing BDHW !

    OH: Your mom and Rebecca can probably both curl up in a corner someplace — Mom says they were talking until 12:30 or so, and Rebecca had to be at the airport at 4:30 — in the morning! Mom asked Rebecca if she would be able to sleep on the plane, and Rebecca said not a chance, so I’m sure she won’t be any peppier than your mom!

    Rio. The Rockies won in 11 innings, 11-10. That means the series was split 2-2 even Steven. That also means that both of our treat budgets are safe as well, at least for a while longer. Wookie

    Congrats to Wookie and Rio. I have no idea what the Twins did today. Mr.Staff keeps me up to date on them.

    He emailed me to let me know that AbbietheKitty was annoyed with him last night. She is a lap Kat, but she has issues with skin. If he is wearing shorts she will not get on his lap and risk touching naked skin. Last night he had shorts on and she refused to get on his lap. She stared at him and then she turned her back on him until he felt guilty. He says he had to go upstairs and put on his jeans. She was contented then and deigned to sit on his lap.

    SiberH!…That really stinks! I thought for sure you would have been able to listen to it on the computer…grunt! Bastards!

    Giggle! I think that is all I’ve done since the Royals’ mum and Melanie picked me up at the airport. What a wonderful day! I met the corgis, Sage of the herb kats, Leonard the person not the dog, Golinka’s father and his dog Calle, Zoe and Dan the Man, and the Pack. I have been Newfed! Wonderful! Wonderful, I tell you, wonderful!

    Leonard and Amalia dropped me off at the hotel and guess what Leonard said as they were leaving? Lock the doors!

    Rio: Would you like to see a photo or two from the past two days before I got to my cold, hard bed with no baseball toys?

    Below is a picture of KirbyT’s mom and I. We opted to take a photo from the ankle down.

    Patsy is a love and looks wonderful with her summer cut.

  114. Macy the Min-pin
    11:02 pm on June 28th, 2012

    We are guessing that the feet with less color belong to the Alaskan, unless her feet have been tanning while in the southern climes.

  115. Tupper and Gilly
    11:02 pm on June 28th, 2012

    Bella – GO TO BED!

    What a wonderful time we all had! Gilly fell in love with Rebecca and spent some time on her lap. Callie actually moved her big white butt into a trot to come and meet her. Sage, who usually hides until new people go away came and hung out and even gave her head butts.
    Our Gramp is totally charmed. It was such a fun time all day!

    And tomorrow will be even better! The radio guy postponed the interview until VERY early tomorrow morning. then Mama says they are going to go out for breakfast, and then bring Rebecca back to the hotel to SLEEP for a couple hours.
    Then, a Howler (as yet to be designated) will arrive, and MollyPop’s Mom will arrive (maybe with a stowaway) and then everyone will come here for dinner before the Big Event. And you know what THAT means! We get tummies from EVERYBODY!!

    Woo hooo

    Does it get any better than that? Well – it would be better if every Plunderer could be here – but you will be here with us in spirit!

  116. Macy the Min-pin
    11:03 pm on June 28th, 2012

    ACK, Patsy is posing for nudie pics now? lol, looking cool girl!
