    Good morning, everyone! Sometimes we forget just how special Plunderer quilts are then we look at one again and memories flood in 🙂
    Have a sure-fire Saturday.

    Thank you, Spence, for making our Plunderer world possible. You help us smile through our tears.

    Good morning, Everybody, and take good care 🙂

    Good morning, and thank you for posting the Quilt picture. So many of those on it are gone from the blog, or just gone.

    We are a special group for sure.

    Sunny and spring like here. We will take it when we can get it!

    Didn’t sleep well last night. Thinking of the heart of the blog and Macy’s Dad, then onto my Mom and M i l and brother and soon I had to get up for kleenex.
    Might as well check the blog…and there is the quilt!
    Thank you Spence for making it possible and thank you fellow plunderers for being here.

    Oh, Spence! The FIRST Favorite Thing!
    You must have told me but I cannot remember!

    The Quilt is Lovely…a Masterpiece actually…always love seeing it.

    Thank you, ALR, for the explanation of your mysterious initials.

    Hope Everyone’s Day is a Good One.

    Wonder Fluff is a real product. I used it on Mollypop. Her groomer recommended it.

  9. Masquers
    8:42 am on April 5th, 2014

    Thank you, MPM. This extra adding and subtracting of hours has someone here in a spin.
    We were amazed to learn Wonder Fluff is REAL. A real product.
    B&M: BSD said to tell you 12 Years a Slave was very good, but he is not liking The Wolf of Wall Street so much. And it is long, long…almost 3 hours.
    Riö: Still working on The Good Wife here, but we have heard rumors….Yeep.

    Good morning. We love that there quilt, and Spence’s words, but we sure do wish we could build a quild annex. 🙁
    Happy Saturday. The ‘rents are scurrying around with a big chore list in their hands. It is time to start the garden (finally).
    ❤️ for ML if it works.

  12. dawson
    8:55 am on April 5th, 2014

    I’d better go read last night’s late posts to find out what the ALR initials stand for. My vote is for Anonymous Lurker Revealed.

  13. Fern
    8:56 am on April 5th, 2014

    The first thing on that chore list better be my housewarming.

  14. Tupper's Mama
    9:08 am on April 5th, 2014

    Good morning, my assorted patchwork of a crazy quilt family. Sure am glad you are all part of our lives.
    And it’s nice to officially “meet” you ALR. Who knows- Yellowstone could become a Chet meet and greet spot.

  15. Barb & Maggie
    9:16 am on April 5th, 2014

    BSD, Thank you. I don’t think we have Wolf of Wall Street is one we are interested in seeing either.

    As far as Spence’s first best memory in his career, it had something to do with a comment a young reader made to him. He was speaking to a class or third graders ( I think) that had read a young adult book, probably an Ingrid book. Foggy on details, but the kid gave him an under-whelming compliment, like the book was OK, or just not too bad. Something along those lines.

    Fern! Your House Warming! What should I bring?
    er…I Was Invited…Right?

    I love that quilt! This must have been when the Plunderers were a small group. I see Rio in many different places.

    Who knew Wonderfluff was real?

  18. Mollypop's Mom
    9:28 am on April 5th, 2014

    Long ago, when I mentioned Molly was going to the groomer to get Wonderfluffed, the name stuck. It became one of our blog-isms. Another one came about when Rio and Molly were fighting about something and he told her not to get all poodled up.

  19. Staff
    9:35 am on April 5th, 2014

    The quilt was delivered in August or September of 2010. Four years ago! Like many things on this here blog it was the brainchild of Rio TEP. It kept me busy during the down time after my transplant. Wookie’s Ma, Debbie was heavily into making blocks for plunderers also and helped with the design.

    We kept it a secret…sort of.

    Good memories

  20. Staff
    9:36 am on April 5th, 2014

    One of my favorite blogisms is carpola. Because of Dawson misspelling crapola. It stuck too. 🙂

  21. Herd of Hounds
    9:46 am on April 5th, 2014

    Also thanks to Rio, the HOH has become Hoho. Thanks, we think.

  22. Barb & Maggie
    10:01 am on April 5th, 2014

    There are so many of them: Double DDs, HerbKats, OFA, BDHW, YSAS, OTAS, Golinka. The list goes on and on, just ask a newbie like Diane.

  23. Diane C.
    10:26 am on April 5th, 2014

    MPM–thanks for the info and the picture of Wonerfluff. I’d buy it just for the name, but maybe I can get the kids to hold still for a beauty treatment.
    B and M–And while we’re on the subject, the only things I “get” on that list are OFA, HerbKats and Golinka (I’ve never even seen Double DDs, which sounds suspicious). Would you like to take this opportunity to provide a glossary?
    Fern–what can I bring? I was thinking Indian cauliflower with red potatoes and peas (I’m invited, right?)

  24. Tupper's Mama
    10:31 am on April 5th, 2014

    Fern – we suppose hot wings for your housewarming would be in poor taste?

  25. Wose-the small and meek
    10:42 am on April 5th, 2014

    Diane, let’s see…

    Double Ds happen when the Awesome Dawson’s post appears twice, usually in succession.
    HerbKats, are Basil and Sage who live with The Storyteller and the Royal Mum. The Royal Mum aka Golinka, Stinky Mama. She is the lovely Amalia.
    Basil and Sage are called the Wrotten Kats by Tupper and Gilly.
    BDHW, is our lovely Pixie, Rebecca who is the best damn handler’s wife.
    YSAS, is Melanie’s actor son, McKey, aka Clarkson.
    OTAS, hmmmm, even I am not sure of this acronym , but that is Melanie’s son Rob.
    Grizz or the Prof is my husband.
    HRH, B isHer Royal Higness Bee (Stover), the ruler of Stovernia .
    OFM or the Giant, is the most handsome AJ, husband of Rebecca , and musher extraordinaire, so he is our favorite musher.

    Will think on this some more.

  26. Fern
    10:43 am on April 5th, 2014

    My housewarming begins at 1:00. Please bring mealworms, raisins, and cranberries. My drink of choice is water.
    See ya all then!

    P.s. No wings please.

  27. Wose-the small and meek
    10:43 am on April 5th, 2014

    Fern, I suppose pot holders with a chicken design might not be an appropriate gift either?

  28. Fern
    10:46 am on April 5th, 2014

    Wose, those potholders would look very nice in my house. Nice gift! And Mom has not yet made my nest box curtains. Staff??

  29. Siber-H
    10:48 am on April 5th, 2014

    Thank you Spence for all the wonderful books and for the blog.

    The quilt was the only time mom has been in a fabric store in her life.

    Barb? I don’t know what BDHW stands for.

  30. Tupper's Mama
    10:49 am on April 5th, 2014

    OTAS = OlderTattoo Artist Son.

    Blurring is the ability to move across time and space at will. Smoochers are care givers who have first passed the blurring course given by Wolfie Wigglebutt, then go for an advanced degree in healing snuggles.

    Sandra!…snort!….I knew some speculating would get her to reveal her first name identity….heh!heh!…My friend has been to Yellowstone several times, but it’s been a very, very long time ago….grunt!…I wonder if Old Faithful is still faithful. After a few earthquakes it sort of lost i’ts faithful timing way back when…sniff!

  32. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:57 am on April 5th, 2014

    Quilt!…Isn’t it a lovely thing – chalk full of good memories too!…heh!heh!

    The only way Mom will let me go to Fern’s house warming is on a short leash.

  34. ALR
    10:59 am on April 5th, 2014

    Thank you all for the warm welcome regarding my ALR story. Anonymous Lurker Revealed indeed! But who can ignore Rio’s need for details!

    C.Hobbit, yes, we here have two dogs. Schnauzers both, Murphy and Zoe. They keep us walking, walking, walking…..even in the rain, rain, rain here in Vancouver, Washington. I have been hoping your Sadie’s problem was UTI type. Zoe had a lot of that in her early years and I found a tiny bit of dried cranberry powder from a capsule to be very helpful. That may not be the case for Sadie, but let me know if you want more details.

    I love the Plunder On quilt and all the blogisms. Keep it going!

    Here I am, in my Tenement on Wheels!

  37. Herd of Hounds
    11:18 am on April 5th, 2014

    OK, Fern We want to know when the PT video is coming out? After all, a new homeowner’s gotta keep up with the payments.
    Another silly thing here is when our big paws hit the wrong keys and words get other meanings…like when Staff was Stagg for a few days 🙂

  38. Wose-the small and meek
    11:37 am on April 5th, 2014

    Siber-H, BDHW is our lovely Rebecca , best damn handler’s wife.

    I love saying the word damn!

  39. Wose-the small and meek

    RIO! That is a nice picture of staff with the quilt. Abbie the Kitty is well disguised as she lounges with Staff.

    Rose: You are right! Abbie is in camouflage mode.

  41. B. Stover
    12:08 pm on April 5th, 2014

    On the “One Just Plunders On” square, Staff sewed dog bones with cream-colored thread. I really like that. Close-ups of the squares can be viewed on Dishlickers.

  42. Masquers

    A lot of talent on this here blog. Someone here just wishes they had a bit of it.

  43. Herd of Hounds
    12:44 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Fern, after seeing your nice, new, non-poopy coopy, we want to sent you something to put on the wall. The chicken went to the middle of the road. She was going to lay it on the line.

  44. Peck of Parrots
    12:47 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Hey wait! We’ve been quite for a long time and since Fern is feathered (albeit not a pretty as us), we wish to contribute to her decor. The farmer gave his chickens a bushel of feed, but they only took a peck! (What else would a peck of parrots contribute?)

  45. O'Howlers
    12:54 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Silly Hoho. Fern pays her room and board with eggs. Don’t your POPs do that???

    DianeC: Indian cauliflower? I think I need that recipe.
    YSAS – Young Starving Actor Son (early)

    Fern: Your new wheeled digs are cool. I’m making pizza. Do chickens like pizza?

  47. O'Howlers
    12:57 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Dawson, pizza is an excellent housewarming food. You bring it, and we will be sure to give it to Fern. Heh!

    Macy’s Maw: I want to try my paw at dainty licks. Hold still.

  49. dawson
    1:16 pm on April 5th, 2014

    ALR: I lived 20 years in Montana and never made it to Yellowstone so, yes, I’d love to have the tour. Not this year, though. I need some home time.

    SiberH: I’m glad you asked about BDHW because I was wondering what those initials meant also.

  50. Staff
    1:18 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Curtains? Fern wants curtains? Really? Well, I could make a simple curtain I guess. What are the measurements?

    Abbie the Kitty was testing the quilt. She is a certified quilt tester you know.

  51. Staff
    1:19 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Oh Wyatt. I love the picture of you with your tongue out just waiting to try a dainty lick. I think you will have to do some dainty lick training with Macy the Min-Pin. snicker

  52. Siber-H
    1:20 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Wyatt, You are cute!

    Mom has been to Yellowstone several times but just like Rio’s friend, it was a long, long, time ago.

  53. Wyatt
    1:27 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Dainty lick training with our favorite min-pin! I would never do anything to cross Mr. Redbone Hound.

    Best-damn-handler-wife—-BDHW for short—is my Lady’s official title at the kennel. She even has business cards and a blog-in-progress to prove it.

  54. Herd of HoundsWyatt
    1:32 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Wyatt, mom told us how handsome you are, but your foto is gorgeous! Any one of the HOH would love to escort you anywhere! Lucy is a great blurer and Darah is getting better at it 🙂 (I, Pookey am my Dirty Daddy Dawg’s girl and try not to lower myself to the ebony canadians’ standards)

    (Lucy Lou here, my turn) Mom went to Yellowstone back when the quakes and slides were happening (when dirt was new in the 60’s). She’d love to go again.

    New Interest in Yellowstone of Late as Buffalo are seen Running From Park. It turns out they just Love to Run in the spring.
    Montana bil is very Knowledgeable About all things History and takes visitors on trips to Yellowstone.

    Fern: Your Condo is Lovely, But a tad Small. My tail takes up the whole living room.

  56. O'Howlers
    2:14 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Wyatt looks like quite the dainty licker,but we know he is a gentleman turned outlaw. No worries here. We like bad boys.

  57. Herd of Hounds
    2:18 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Fern, Lucy and I just noticed that the ruff on your new house is just like the one on our dog cabin!

  58. Herd of Hounds
    2:28 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Fern, Pookey found this foto to share with you (since she wouldn’t share puns). This is the Dog Cabin with its Fern house matching roof.

  59. dawson
    2:50 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Wyatt: A dainty lick by any other name would be as wet. Maybe even more wet. That is a great picture of you.

    For DianeC: BDHW = Snowbella = the Pixie = Rebecca.
    OFM = Our favorite musher = the Giant = AJ = Justin

    YSAS and OTAS are Melanie’s sons (Zoe’s grandsons)

    Double Dawsons came about when my computer mouse was malfunctioning and would double post (and occasionally triple post) my comments.

  60. O'Howlers
    3:07 pm on April 5th, 2014

    What a fantabulous dog cabin, HOH! Youse guys are not only twins with Fern, but also with the other hens and the horses, and with us us! We have that same ruf on our barn, house, and big chicken coop. Also, the shed, pump house, bake oven, and summer kitchen. Heh heh! We like that ruf. A lot.

  61. Herd of Hounds
    3:32 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Best part was the cost! The Dirty Daddy Dawg got is free from leftovers on a job 🙂

    I like the picture of the log house. How big is it? It reminds me of the Lincoln Logs we used to play with when we were kids. Many decades ago. Any one else remember them?

  64. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:52 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Weekends!…sniff!…Go very fast. The original deal was my friend would cook on weekends…grunt!…But this is not always panning out. Just like tonight, her mother is starting supper really early again much to my friends chagrin…sniff!…Ok by my and Beau we like to eat early and then again late…heh!heh!…But someone else says eating early cause her to wake up a 3:00am starvin’ marvin…grunt!…It’s a no win situation in the kitchen these days…wuffle!

  65. Barb & Maggie
    5:52 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Barb remembers Lincoln logs. Similar to legos that are popular with kids today.

  66. Tupper's Mama
    5:58 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Oh how we wish we still had our Lincoln logs.

    Rio – tell your friend that if she is yearning to do some cooking, our kitchen door is always open.

    WIDE open.

    Speaking of which, we are cooking a duck for the guys tomorrow. Anyone have any advice?

  67. Herd of Hounds
    6:01 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Mom remembers Lincoln Logs and even played with them even though they were “boy” toys (different meaning).
    The Dog Cabin is 8×10, perfect for a Herd of Hounds (and mom) on a hot summer day 🙂

  68. Herd of Hounds
    6:02 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Tupper’s Mama: advise for the duck??? Duck sauce!

  69. Barb & Maggie
    6:47 pm on April 5th, 2014

    T & G’s Mom, Barb has not made duck for years, but a simple roasting might be easiest. Baste with some butter and cook about an hour or till internal temp of about 180. Duck has more fat than turkey so it is usually moist and not dried out as turkey breast can be. Seems to pair well with fruit sauces – apple, orange or cherries. Also stuffing works well with it. And of course your wonderful Brussels sprouts! What time is dinner, we will be there.

  70. Diane C.
    7:12 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Everyone–Thanks for the information (OFAS and YSAS really had me confused).
    Wyatt–Great picture. How do you feel about older women (I’m asking for a friend)?
    Dawson–I got my starting recipe from a Madhur Jaffrey cookbook (which may now be out of print) but this captures the basic idea: (you may have to copy and paste)

    I’d ignore the ginger paste part–what’s important is the veg., turmeric, cumin and tomatoes–you can just sautee some garlic with the cumin at the start. You’ll enjoy.

  71. Fern
    7:27 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Now I fly to my roost to sleep
    I pray the Lord my soul to keep
    If I decide to eat when I awake
    I will lay an egg for heaven’s sake.

    Good night all. Thanks for coming to my housewarming. My new home is Grrrrreat!

  72. Measka
    7:30 pm on April 5th, 2014

    After Fern’s big day with her sisters, she climbed up her ramp and flew to her roost, where the ‘rents found her and locked her up safe and sound.

    I kinda miss her.

  73. Barb & Maggie
    7:32 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Fern, Did you make up that prayer? It is a good one, yes it is!

    We are doing our first grilling of the season. Steak coming right up.

  74. dawson
    7:48 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Thanks DianeC: I will try that yummy sounding recipe.

    Fern: Sleep tight in your new digs.

  75. Mollypop's Mom
    7:53 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Fern, What a beautiful new home! Maybe you’ll lay a great big egg tomorrow morning.

    Home!…We are all home now…heh!…I’ve been over to my other house and it is all empty now…sniff!…I sniffed and sniffed and that is all, I swear….wheeze!… My friend says now a few things need to be patched and fixed, but nothing major. It looks really good after all this time…chuffle!…My friend is very pleased and appreciative of the guys who were in there after I left…snuffle!

  78. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:09 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Quilt!….A bit of trivia for those who were not around at the time…snort!…There are little baseballs sewn onto the Quilt, which Spencer got quite a kick out of at the time….heh!….Little does he know those are listening devices I had Staff plant so we could keep tabs on him and the new book he is writing…snort!

  84. Riö – The Evil Pug

    Rio, Also remember the camera’s that you had me install. Although we have had some problems with them and once had to infiltrate the writing room and make some changes. Or something. It was a long time ago.

    My laryngitis is better. Now I can speak louder than a whisper. Now I sound like a frog whose voice is changing. Mostly. Other times it is still a whisper. Yeep. But I got a new (old)sewing
    machine today. From 1906!

  87. Barb & Maggie
    9:40 pm on April 5th, 2014

    Staff, Will this new beauty go on display in your home? Hard to believe it is over 100 years old. It looks brand new!

    Night all. Bed time here.

    Hope MaryLou is doing OK tonight.

  88. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:47 pm on April 5th, 2014

    GO ROCKIES!! You can win this one!

    I don’t watch basketball, but, hey, the Huskies won!!!

    Where does Staff keep all the sewing machines? Anything from 1906 is cool. They cared about making sewing machines pretty back then.

    night all

    Just popping in for a minute to tell staff that you can get a wooden cremation urn/box with an antique sewing machine replica on top. Who knew?

    Macy’s Maw: Maybe I’m a natural dainty licker, or maybe you are natural dainty lickee. My vote is for both. Dainty licks to you.

    Wyatt–I put your question to my friend, and she licked my face (daintily) so I think she’s OK with it. (On the other hand, her legs are pretty short compared to yours, so “running with” might be a relative term here…)
    Staff–That really is a beautiful machine–is it powered by hand (you turn the wheel at the side manually)?
    Macy’s Mom–I actually like the urn/box. (And I’m assuming this is one of an entire line of customizable)(sp) containers. And wondering what I’d choose for myself…)
    Fern–what a beautiful prayer. I hope you’re sleeping soundly and happily as I type this.
    BSD–I wasn’t quite following all of that last post, but I DID see the picture of bison running in Yellowstone. I hope to visit after they reach their destination and are comfortable again.
    And now I get to say “Good Night” to all.

    Heh, there is a style of cover for the old machines called a coffin box cover. You can guess it’s shape. I have a few.

    The machine is electric right now but it is scheduled for a motorectomy soon. I have to find a hand crank for it. I don’t remember if I brought one down to the cities in my box of necessary sewing machine parts or not.

    Since it was made in 1906 I expect it wasn’t originally electric. And the motor is not a Singer motor and the light is an add- on light. Many of the older machines were retrofitted for electricity after the 20’s when electricity became more common.
