Pablo Sandoval Day

“Kind of undermined your World Series pick,” Admin says.

“Ain’t over till it’s etc.,” says Spence.

“Where are you today?”

“Chicago. I’m on two panels: 1st stop at Lake Villa District Library at 1PM, then at 6 PM at The Cellar in conjunction with Orphans of the Storm Animal Shelter.”

    Good Morning Everyone!

    YES!! It is Panda day! I agree with Spence that it isn’t over yet.

    Chicago, Chicago, it’s my kind of town! Have a great time, Spence! Eat some pizza!

    When I was a little girl, Dan would take me in on the train and we’d go to lunch someplace where you could see the Chicago river. Not always a good view . . I bet it’s better now.

    The dogs were really cute after eating all that food. They were a mass of black, white, brown and gray in the middle of the barn. Most on their backs, tummies in the air, to cool off. The barn roof lifted about 2 inches with all the released gasses.

    I was the first!

    I just looked at the latest projected storm track of Sandy. It isn’t good. Spence, start preparing! They are saying that it will be worse than The Perfect Storm in 91. BTW, The Perfect Storm is a very good book.

    Good morning all.

    Chicago hint – best breakfast in town is Lou Mitchell’s – spinach and feta omelette to dir for. Donna says cheddar and apple. Just west of the Loop – http://www.loumitchellsrestaurant.com/

    Just ran across this webcam for 10 day old Great Dane puppies –
    no dog lover can resist! http://explore.org/#!/live-cams/player/great-dane-service-puppies-indoor-puppy-room

    If another hurricane is coming we’ll hunker down in Queens again. This is getting a bit old…..

    The dog is named Crazy Daisy, available for adoption from the Rescue Ink facility.

    Baseball – my teams are out of the hunt, and I like the Giants and the Tigers about equally well, so my version of rooting is to say “Let the best team win.”

    Lived through the Perfect Storm on the coast above Boston.

    Awe inspiring is the only way to describe it. I went out on a ocean rock ledge the day before the storm. The ocean was lead colored and sort of pressed down. Hard to explain.

    The night before the storm, Zoe and I were trying to get back from somewhere on the coast road. I needed to get back for the guys’ Halloween. In the town south of us we passed through 6 inches of ocean. It poured while the guys and I went around. I held a huge umbrella. Hardly any other kids were out, so my guys got a LOT of candy just going around the block.

    The day of the storm, which we called the Halloween storm for quite awhile, the crossway to the other part of town was closed. They parked an ambulance over there just to have some sort of medical support. We walked down to the harbor and the waves were crashing in the harbor 6 to 8 feet high. No one was allowed near the ocean.

    The next day? Well, the fishermen and lobstermen were no dummies and had pulled their boats in. The yachts were up against the causeway stranded. The causeway was completely filled up two to three feet high rocks and boulders. The small food shack (best fries ever) was completely gone.

    A few houses were flooded, but they were mostly newer houses, not the ones from the 1700’s.

    All the Smoochers have been returned to their respective homes. It is always hard to leave Wose. We had fun shopping for Halloween costumes online. Belle Starr and Wose picked out the former’s costume. It seems like Belle Starr will be dressed as a pug dressed as a pug.

    tee hee. Masquers, Once you are home from Wose’s check this out. If they stop bouncing you can give them a nudge. These kats love to bounce.

    Good morning all. If we had not seen Spence before in Naperville we would have to take a drive over to Lake Villa today. I bet Spence comes to Chicago more since Ben is living here. Orphans of the Storm rescue has been around for a long time and has a good rep.

    Good morning, All.
    Kat is back on the farm. She keeps singing
    “How Ya gonna keep her down on the farm
    Once she’s seen the Hudson”.

    Apparently she had a very good time, and was the envy of all the 4-leggeds because of her cologne. Wose? Not so much.

    Melanie: Do you have any idea why the new houses were flooded but not the old ones?

  16. OleyHowlers
    12:30 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Sandy is predicted to slam Cape May in So. Jersey on most of the models. From there, it hits S.E. Pennsylvania. Yikes! This weekend, we will be saying bye bye to our doggie lounge chairs, along with all of the other outdoor furniture. The rents are going to do a trial run with the new generator.

    Snow!…It snowed here last night…grump!…Someone was very unhappy when she had to scrap off her car and drive to the screwed-up-busy-place…sniff!…Beau and I watched her leave from the top of the chair in front of the window in the warm living room…wuffle!

    Pablo!….Woooooo!…Again tonight! How many homeruns will he hit?…snort!snort!

  20. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    1:13 pm on October 25th, 2012

    We are tracking the storm here in Chevy Chase as well, some models have it hitting further south. Hopefully our good friends at PEPCO are starting preparations now, just in case.

    Rio, you asked last night about who we are rooting for — definitely the Giants although we don’t dislike the Tigers. Mom’s dad was a big Giants fan and grandpa even rooted for the Giants back in the day when they were the NY Giants.

    SiberH — I agree with you that I would not want to have Alburquerque as a last night. Did you note that he spells it the traditional way, with the extra “r” in it. That is the way it is supposed to be spelled, but your home town (and my dad’s) dropped the extra “r” along the way and no one ever reported it as missing or seemed to care.

    Wookie

  21. OleyHowlers
    1:22 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Wookie, no matter where this storm makes actual landfall, they are saying it “has all the earmarks of a billion-dollar storm, because of the heavily populated areas that will be affected. Tell your folks to make those hotel reservations.

  22. Siber-H
    2:04 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Wookie, I did notice the different spelling and it reminded me that Albuquerque was once spelled that way.
    I’m like Wookie, I don’t hate the Tigers like I do the Dirty Birds. If the Tigers do win the World Series, I’ll live and probably not complain. (much)

    I’m glad that all of you that could be in Sandy’s path are preparing for it.

    Yikes! Did you say the Cape? Audrey and Pearl take care & prepare.
    O.Howlers, River Bears, Royals, Wookie…batten down the hatches! Paws crossed for the Best possible scenario.

    Melanie & Zoe were the hostesses with the mostesses, but for some reason we all ended up sleeping in the barn. Something about gas?
    Home now and ready for another nap.

    Terry: Were the dogs you mentioned wearing shows by any chance?

    Eau de skunk was the Parfum du jour on Wednesday. The lingering fragrance continues……

    B.Stover: The newer houses were built much closer to the water line.
    Also, Prof, because my guys continue to misplace commas or not use them in their texting to me . . I have begun to sign my emails and texts “Love Mom” instead of “Love, Mom”. They have not noticed yet.

    Staff: LOVE IT.

    Terry: Going to look at the link.

  39. B.Stover
    5:28 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Bear: You need the intransitive verb “lie” because the action refers to the subject of the sentence not a direct object. Two ways to rephrase it: The dog lies on the bed but never stays still. (Intransitive) I will lay the dog on the bed but he won’t stay still. (Transitive because the dog is the direct object.)

    Pork and apples tonight.

    Beginning to begin the start of getting ready for the maybe storm. Checking gas containers for the generator. Finding the board that bars the barn doors. Making sure the back door to the barn gets a latch.

    Terry, your post from this morning has now shown up. Crazy Daisy looks like a lot of fun! We have not yet had a chance to look at the video yet, but will try to do that later this evening.
    Youse guys know that Sasha is on a ton of meds: pain pills, senility pills, nerve damage pills, etc. she hates taking them, and the rents hate giving them, well, Mom has found these Greenies pill pockets. They come in different flavors, but Sasha’s are peanut butter flavor. Sasha loves them! And we 3 are jealous because it sure feels like we are being ripped off in the treats department. If any of you 4-leggeds have to take pills, you got to try these. They even make them for cats.

    6:44 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Hmmm, if as the Wikipedia has, that Subliminal stimuli is “any sensory stimuli below and individual’s threshold for conscious perception.” then I believe that my missing comma could be a subliminal stimulus. Thus a subliminal demand to “Love Mom”. This, of course, would be if my guys remember how to use a comma!

    Pill Pockets. If Abbie needs a pill that is what I have to use. She gets salmon flavor. Alice has figured them out so I just give pills to her plain. She is happy if she gets a treat after. And a treat before. And a treat anytime she gets up on the dresser where I give her the pills even if it isn’t pill time.

    You know I think the Turtleman has been sneaking them also because when I first got here in September I took one and this is only my second and the box is almost empty. It was mostly full when I took the first one. I don’t think he has found her stash of Chocolate though. Unless he is eating them and carefully putting back the empty wrappers.

    Slider!….Did you see how far Scootie slid?…heh!heh!

    He was sure going fast on his tummy. He looked like he was on a skateboard.

  86. Siber-H
    9:05 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Yes, I did. I like the name Scootie for him.
    Is he the one that was a Twinkie before he joined the Rockies?

    Melanie: We will be watching YSAS. POI comes on at nine here just before Elementary.

  90. Staff
    9:09 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Nope, Scootie was never a Twinky. Delmon Young with Detroit was a Twin.

  91. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:09 pm on October 25th, 2012

    SiberH!….All I know is he was on the Red Sox team for awhile. Not sure if he was a Twinkie…sniff!…Maybe Staff can answer that question once she swallows that nuttie roll…heh!

    Wow! Great defensive plays by the Giants in that inning.

  93. SnowBella

    I wish our east coast Plunderers could blur here to wait out the storm. Yeep!

  94. Riö - The Evil Pug

  96. Barb & Maggie
    9:28 pm on October 25th, 2012

    When is the storm actually going to hit?

    We will be going to bed soon. Been a long day.

    Still haven’t heard from G & B have we?

  97. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:29 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Staff!…We here were just wondering the same thing….snort!…thinking about Wookie and his family. Hoping Spencer can get home from Chicago in time to feed Audrey and Pearl….sniffle!…What will become of them all in this huge storm?..whiffle!

  98. Siber-H
    9:30 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Fielder can play first base better than I thought he could when I saw him just in the Home Run Derby. He is a big dude.

  99. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:30 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Pitts!….Brad Pitt is now doing cologne commercials…grunt!…How far has he fallen?…sniff!cough!

    Staff. I’ve got my bag already packed just in case. And mom will make sure that the IPaw is fully charged. And dad will make sure that the Wookiemobile is fully gassed up. All contingencies covered.

    9:35 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Snicker. Quite a commercial. I was wondering what it was about.

    I have never thought Brad was a hottie till now. I can see how he got that reputation.

    So Fister is the giant on Detroit’s team. 6’8″

  102. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:35 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Wookie!…Are youse guys all watching the game tonight?…snort!snort!…Even your Maw?…heh!

    9:38 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Staff: And, oh yeah, I mean I believe every word you are telling me about missing salted nut rolls! Sure I do.

    I am watching Person of Interest but I also am recording it so in case I miss YSAS (I may have already missed him) I can watch again.

  104. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:39 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Brad!…It pains me to watch Brad’s career – so I quit….sniff!…Twelve Monkeys is his best acting ever…grunt!

  105. Staff
    9:39 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Sounds like you are ready for anything Wookie. I know your Mom is a good organizer. Heh, They just showed a young girl with a pet Chicken. Too bad it is a Bank of America commercial.

  106. Siber-H
    9:39 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Wookie? How far will you have to go to get out of the way of the storm?

  107. Staff
    9:40 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Heh heh, Now Dawson, you know the Turtleman. What a candy hog. I swear I am innocent.

    9:44 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Dawson!…Besides you know Staff is not supposed to eat salty things….snort!…So you can’t blame her for all the salty nutty rolls missing…heh!

  113. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:09 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Defence!…The Giants defence is awesome tonight!…snort!…They need to get their offence in motion at some point because my friend is getting very tired and she might make me go up to my warm soft bed too soon for comfort, if that makes any sense…heh!

  114. Riö - The Evil Pug

  116. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:14 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Rebecca!…Do you mean steak, pork, chicken and Bacon??..heh!…Thats what I consider real food….sniff!…I’m so happy that you are happy that you do not have the flu anymore…wheeze!

  117. SnowBella
    10:16 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Rio: For tonight’s purposes, food is in the form of kibble. The meat, fish and even lard come later. Annabelle loves lard.

  118. Riö - The Evil Pug

  121. Staff
    10:25 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Lard. We buy lard all the time. And no, AbbietheKitty does not get lard. We use it to make suet cakes for the birds. Lard and Peanut butter, oatmeal, flour, sugar, corn meal and sunflower seed hearts and no salt peanuts.

    The birds love it. Even in the summer the Orioles, Red Breasted Grosebeaks and Catbirds love it.

  122. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:30 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Bases!…Loaded with Giants!….Woooooo!…Two outs but the Giants get one man home….snort!…Still a runner at third…heh!heh!…A Giant on third is worth two on the bench.

  123. Siber-H
    10:34 pm on October 25th, 2012

    Well, The Giants have a very small lead right now.
