    Ooo…first. Has that happened before? Maybe I do have jet lag since I woke up at 3:30 am Alaska time.

    Looking forward to a Bernie & Chet summer.

    Good morning, Hobbit and everyone! Hobbit, you are still on eastern time with a soupçon of exhaustion 🙂 Divorce, American style? No bloodshed, we hope…except for those kosher chickens. Safe trip Golinka and good luck with your 3rd tablet.
    Have a thunderstruck (or thunderous in the midwest) Tuesday.

    Good morning all.

    We agree, a Chet and Bernie summer sounds wonderful to us.

    Last cool day, and then 80s tomorrow. Wow! Summer all at once!

    Barb is getting ready for a work day. Later gators.

    As Big Fans of Chet the Jet we couldn’t ask for a more thrilling summer (all preordered of course).

    Have a Very Good Day Everyone.

    Spence and Admin are making me laugh.

    C.Harris: You DO have jet lag. It will just take a day or so to get back to normal.

    Good morning all.

    Chet and Bernie have redefined a good beach read!!

    Belle Starr, I am always happy to share stuff with you! I can’t wait to play with Mr. Carrot with you!

    CHobbit, what was the time difference in Turkey? 3:30 you say, that is about the third time I have woken up from trying to get a good night’s sleep.

    RIO! Who on Earth is the guy on the Rockies who has a Duck Dynasty beard?

    Thinking on Zoe, Truman, Karen, and BooBear, Wolfie, Macy’s Mom, the Pixie,
    Gramps and the Storyteller, and hoping the Royal Mum gets a Tablet that works!

    Masquers and Rio, we LOVE Jack Bauer but have not watched last nights show yet. Hopefully, tonight Mom will get to watch it. She had to watch Dancing with the Stars last night. Is Mom the only one on the blog who watches it? This season has some awesome dancers.

    Wose, it seems there are several Rockies with beards.

    10:00 am on May 6th, 2014

    Morning all. We have to laugh when Spence and Admin get after each other. Must be tough for them living together.

    Setting up a crock pot for the guys for tonight. Still very worried about how they will handle meals. But the cupboard is well stock with peanut butter and ritz crackers, so….

    10:10 am on May 6th, 2014

    Golinka, the survival instinct will kick in and “the boys” won’t starve. At least you know the house will be clean 🙂
    Wose, think your Duck Dynasty player is Charlie Blackmon #19 center field.

    Hello All–Large scary machines are doing something to the paving infront of my house, which a) kind of ruined the mood for this morning’s walk (Conan just stared at the giant trucks); and b) is unsettling the entire day (and possibly week)–I may be trapped inside and the kids won’t get their hair done!
    The prospect of a Chet and Bernie summer is one of the few things going well today.
    Hobbit–It will all get caught up shortly and you will wind down. If you have any visions or anything, please be sure to take notes.
    (Ah Geez the truck is back making that repeated beeping sound…)

    1) Leave it to Rio!
    2) DianeC., Put on soothing white noise to block the trucks…yeep!
    3) Dawson, Patrick Kane has been voted top forward of the week in the Stanley Cup finals 🙂
    4) (shhh…hope Golinka is in the air for this) Why did the Indians get here first? They had reservations. (sorry couldn’t help ourselves)

  17. Masquers

    HOH: She doesn’t leave for another 2 hrs. 42 min. Busted!

    12:53 pm on May 6th, 2014

    RIO! You are the all things Rockies expert! That beard is really scary even during the day time!

    Safe travels to the Royal Mum! I hope there are no disasters waiting in the kitchen for you when you get back! : )

    Hmmmm…..Seems the Howlers havent’t checked in. I wonder if Zeusikov is spending his solitary confinement in Siberia.

  20. Herd of Hounds

    Rose: Fortunately for him, Zeusiköv has the Borzoi and Kat in his cornor. If he’s in Siberia he will soon be rescued and off on a grand adventure.
    Wonder what Mama Meash’s thoughts are on this.

    tI worked on two sewing machines this a.m. One from 1877 (the new Model 12). The other is from the early 1900’s. I put a hand crank on it and am supposed to check the stitch quality but instead I am writing to you.
    I saw the first Rose Breasted Grosbeak of the season this morning. I saw a Say’s Phoebe yesterday. That is the one that is rare in this part of North Dakota. The spring migrants are starting to appear.

    OK off to the sewing machine again and then…quilting! Yippee!
    BBL – way later

    The new issue of Travel & Leisure magazine lists your balloon ride over the what they call fairy chimneys in Cappadocia, Turkey as one of the 10 best balloon rides in the world. Albuquerque, New Mexico is also on the list.

  34. Masquers
    3:20 pm on May 6th, 2014

    Tyb: We have heard about the famous balloon rides in Albuquerque. Wonder if Siber’s mom has ever been on one.

    Almost time for take-off…5 minutes and counting!

  47. BearSpiritDog
    5:00 pm on May 6th, 2014

    Food. All she will get will be those little itsy bitsy Bags of Peanuts. Maybe she thought to Pack a Snack.
    Speaking of which…that’s where I am going now……..

  49. Masquers
    5:08 pm on May 6th, 2014

    Golinka will be arriving in Atlanta at the B Concourse, where I happen to know a Starbucks Coffee can be found. And no need to leave the area, as her next flight leaves from gate B32.

  50. Masquers
    5:21 pm on May 6th, 2014

    Touchdown in 14 minutes!

    A brief hour for chow then off she goes again. Maybe we’ll hear from her.

    Flight-Plan!….The next leg of her flight will be quite long at alost 3 hours ….snort!…I may or may not be able to provide photoz of the journey…snuffle!…Here are all the states she will be flying over…grunt!

  58. Tupper's Mama
    6:04 pm on May 6th, 2014

    Holy Kats – do you know how far gate B32 is from gate B12. Talk about your brutal walks!
    No Starbucks for this girl til she gets to ABQ – the flight is over 3 hours and the plane is PACKED. They are BEGGING people to switch flights. The plane here was delightful- half empty, no squealing children, no bumps. This next flight is going to be tuff.

  59. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:08 pm on May 6th, 2014

    Uh-Oh!…Golinka might be in for a bumpy ride…snort!…If not bumpy then Noisy and Messy and she can kiss her bathroom time goodbye…heh!

  60. Masquers
    6:10 pm on May 6th, 2014

    Too bad you don’t have more flexibility…you could be getting a free ticket out of this.

  61. Tupper's Mama
    6:12 pm on May 6th, 2014

    On the way home we will offer to be bumped. But right now, they are only offering a $100 voucher and only for their airline.

    We can’t go ANYWHERE for $100.


  62. B.Stover
    6:15 pm on May 6th, 2014

    I always think Atlanta is one of the worst airports because of the distance between gates. Have a good remaining trip A.

  63. Tupper's Mama
    6:15 pm on May 6th, 2014

    They have no takers – they are now offering $400.

  64. Masquers
    6:23 pm on May 6th, 2014

    $400! Yeep! That’s serious cash. But then again, your hotel room, nice hot meal and shower awaits.

  65. Siber-H
    6:32 pm on May 6th, 2014

    The weather in Albuquerque for touchdown this evening will be warm with some wind…all in all a nice evening. The plane might hit a bit of CAT coming in over the mountains, but nothing to worry about.

    I am glad I made it home in time to watch Golinka wing her way to NM.

  66. Masquers
    6:33 pm on May 6th, 2014

    Siber! Wooo! Welcome back!

  67. Herd of Hounds

  69. Herd of Hounds

    Golinka, when mom flies she always acts poor and old so the cart people take her from gate to gate 🙂

  72. Barb & Maggie
    7:47 pm on May 6th, 2014

    Amalia, How long did you live in New Mexico? And how long will you be out there?

    Masquers, I think it was you that asked about Amalia doing any balloon rides. I believe she shares Barb’s fear of heights, so probably not.

  73. B.Stover

  75. Masquers
    8:14 pm on May 6th, 2014

  76. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:37 pm on May 6th, 2014

    State!….Golinka is on her way. I am not sure which state she is going over right now. Can someone help me out?….chuffle!

  77. Siber-H
    8:40 pm on May 6th, 2014

    Rio, Arkansas…Oklahoma will be next, and then the Texas panhandle.

  78. B.Stover
    8:43 pm on May 6th, 2014

    I think she’s over Arkansas Rio.

  79. Siber-H
    8:46 pm on May 6th, 2014

    Her plane could come over my house. It depends upon which runway the plane lands on. I could call Air Traffic Control and ask but they might call Homeland Security on me.

    Stover, Thank You

    Rio? Masquers? Do you guys know what kind of plane she is flying on? Maybe a 737?

  80. Kat
    8:52 pm on May 6th, 2014

  84. Thieves!
    9:23 pm on May 6th, 2014

    SiberH: Welcome back, pal! While you were away we discovered that according to Rio’s map, youse guys live only a couple of inches apart. You are practically neighbors.

  85. Siber-H
    9:26 pm on May 6th, 2014

    Thank you Bear

    Masquers, CAT…clear air turbulence

    Kat, Campfire smell does sink into Husky fur. They are not giving me a bath, however.

    🙁 Mom is making us go to bed early because she is tired from giving Pookey her summer trim 🙁 Just because Pookey is afraid of water, mom won’t let a groomer touch her. She (Pook, not mom) now looks like a miniature lion 🙂
    Golinka, “happy landing on a chocolate bar”. What song was that from? Maybe High Hopes? Nighty night

  92. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:02 pm on May 6th, 2014

  93. Thieves!
    10:03 pm on May 6th, 2014

    SiberH is back! Now Rio has someone with whom to watch Rockies baseball. Does that sentence even make sense?
    Golinka should be landing in New Mexico any minute. Lucky woman. She gets to pat SiberH.
    My brain has shut down for the night but I’m staying up to watch a little hockey.

  100. Riö – The Evil Pug

    Riö: No worries the coffers will be replenished by next Sunday. Bear and the Thieves have gone for supplies.
    Just remembered…Fargo is on tonight…time to settle in for the night. See y’all tomorrow.

    We know one Plunderer who is grateful to be back on Terra Firma.
    Sweet dreams, Amalia.

    A burrito! Some day I want to go to New Mexico and eat a burrito. I’m curious about the “hatch” chilies also.
    The man who lives in this house was not happy with the score of the hockey game. Minnesota Wild shut out Chicago.

    Ooo Hatch chili’s are the best. But its too early in the season for them. We are usually here in August, just when they are harvesting and roasting them. Yummmmm

    Happy New Mexico, Golinka. We know how much you love that place. Some day, we hope to get there. We think we would like it too.
    Sorry we couldn’t post much at all yesterday. Mom stole our iPaw, and we have trouble logging onto the big computer in her office.

    Welcome back, SiberH! I think Zeusilov needed some mentoring while you were gone. And someone decided you didn’t need a Mr Carrot…just because you “enjoy” your stuffed toys.
