R.I.P.: Marvin Miller

“Maybe,” Spence says, “the most important non-player in baseball history.”

“Got the players off the plantation,” Admin says.

    Does Admin and Spencer get a pie today?

    Hmm, the union is not working so well with the hockey players . .

    Good morning OleyHowlers and all.

    (whispering) YSAS says he can’t afford to take the time to go see his fan. sigh. Guess we’ll have to work on Sam.

    So the average salary in the 1960s was $16,000 and in the 1980s it was $240,000. What is it today? Don’t answer that. (Should we compare the average salary of the college professor….)

    Howlers: My lips are sealed.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning all. Have to admit we haven’t heard of Marvin. May he RIP anyway.

    Countertop guy was here and gone. New top will be installed 12/10. Yea!

    Kelly is coming tomorrow to paint (hopefully), so Barb is cutting in edges today. Very time consuming, but then Kelly will do the roller work tomorrow.

  10. Tupper and Gilly
    10:34 am on November 28th, 2012

    Morning all.
    We don’t care about baseball. Can we still have pie?
    Today is last minute errands before we leave.
    First – off to the post office to ship the last long overdue package to a very patiant person. And to ship boutique items.

    Then its off to the grocery with Gramp to find things that he can prepare by himself. Gramp is not exactly a world class cook on his best days – with poor eyesight, this is going to realy be a challenge. And he doesn’t like PBJ. sigh.

    Of course when he knew we were going to the grocery, he started making his list of other places he would like to go. double sigh. Please, oh please let his new glasses come in and be RIGHT!

    So…it’s Marvin’s fault there is no hockey right now?

    I have a dentist appointment, otherwise I would still be sleeping.

    B: Yum!

    There was an interesting interview about Marvin Miller yesterday on NPR.

    We are bummed about the hockey because the Minnesota Wild got the two best players ever to both be on their team this year and now there are no games. I think everyone else is scared of Minnesota. sniff, ‘just sayin’.

    Staff, was that interview on Fresh Air? Every time someone dies, no matter how obscure to most of us, Terry Gross has interviewed him/her. She is amazing.

  16. BearSpiritDog
    11:05 am on November 28th, 2012

    Tupper&Gilly: To your folks…
    a Very Successful Shew.
    May their set-up be Easy
    and the pack-up be Light.
    After customers have bought
    most everything in sight!!!

    And…may Gramp get his glasses very soon.

    Barb&Magpie: We are looking forward to seeing those photos when the kitchen is finished.

    B: Baseball! (warm with a dollop of whipped cream on top, please)

    Mom’s car radio is set to NPR at all times. She enjoys Jazzset, Car Talk (reruns) and Fresh Air to name but a few.

    Dawson & Staff: What’s the deal with the hockey?

    11:24 am on November 28th, 2012

    Good luck at the shew. BSD said it so well.

    Rose, We are going to wait and do a couple of pics when the countertop is in, painting is done and the do-dads placed on top of the cabinets.

    Trying to stay motivated to do holiday stuff. Most of the shopping is done, but cards need to be addressed and gifts wrapped. Too lazy to get started!

    Tried to figure out how to get our new address on to dishlickers, couldn’t quite get there. Rebecca said something about fish and mice, but that made no sense to Barb. Could probably email the address to dishlickers, but then at a loss as how to put it in the folder.

  20. Staff
    11:30 am on November 28th, 2012

    Olay Howlers, I couldn’t remember if it was Terry Gross, but I was listening to her yesterday.

    Barb, You mail it to dishlickers and I will put it in the correct file. Let me know once you did your part.

    Got poked this a.m. so that is behind me. Now I am looking forward to Friday. The turtleman is giving me the whole dern tootin day off. I warned him I wasn’t coming back until the supper was over. Snicker. It is amazing how little it takes to make you feel free. I think I will look online to see if there are any estate sales with sewing machines in them….heh.

    Oh yeah, and A Catty Librarian is coming on Sunday to see Maggie and me me me too. Elliot will be staying home.

    Masquers,
    The hockey team owners have locked the players out in an attempt to break the union. So far all that has happened is they have cancelled a whole bunch of games. I did hear the other day that the Wild team owners are putting their office staff on reduced hours but so far no one is being let go.

    Here is why I was finally looking forward to a hockey season here in Minnesota…

    11:54 am on November 28th, 2012

    B&M: Fish and mice! All I have to say is damn ipaw! I went back and reread what I sent you. No wonder you were confused. Yes, just email Dish your new address for your personal email and it can then be moved to the appropriate folder in Dishlickers.

    Rio: If you’re out there, please check your SDD.

    12:43 pm on November 28th, 2012

    Belle Starr, how could your two-legged mama be warm without you next to her in bed. How will AJ be able to go to the post office, if he is strapped to the Most Top Secret Auction Gift? Maybe he will leave the briefcase to go to the post office, and you can tell me what is in there…..

    BearSpiritDog – your prayer poem WORKED!!! Gramp’s glasses have come in. We are on the way to go get them. Woooo hooooo!!!!!

    12:57 pm on November 28th, 2012

    Ohhhhhhhhh.

    They are so beautiful. Sniff. Thank you Rio.

    I bought the forget me not flowers. Those are the first flowers I learned. When we lived on the thumb in Michigan there was a little wild area near our house and it had Forget me Not growing there. I think it was Bruce that I asked what they were. He was always a smarty pants. We moved there when I was four and moved away when I was nine so sometime in that time I learned about the Forget me Not flower. I did not know they were the Alaska state flower till now.

    There is also a tiny frame with beautiful roses around an oval porcelain thingy. It says Friendship, a special kind of love.

    Thank you again, Rio.

    1:56 pm on November 28th, 2012

    Staff, my concern is how to keep from opening the can. Those candies looked good. I am awaiting . .

    T&G, good luck. AND both Staff, and T&G I do know how it feels to be free! It can be such a little thing that makes you feel that way.

    Back from down the hills the other way from the Royals. We now have more food and THREE WREATHS! Very pretty.

    On the other paw, both Zoe and I are zonked so the wreaths are not going up today!

  45. Melanie
    2:02 pm on November 28th, 2012

    Oh, before I rest. I do not understand the attraction of s*h*o*e*s. I know there are some people who love those things, but to me? Those things are put on your lowest limbs to be comfortable, to make your back stop hurting and so you can run if you need to . . fast.

    Zoe is aware of my philosophy on this subject. We were standing in line and she said, “Melanie, I’m getting those (things) for you for a gift”.

    A woman was standing in the grocery line in a pair of ratty jeans and a sweatshirt wearing spiked heels! ARGGGG.

    2:12 pm on November 28th, 2012

    Rio, Everything came through perfectly. I think they were packed so well that nothing could move or shake off. I am amazed at the roses. They stick out so far but they are not even wrinkled or crushed.

    Melanie. I am with you on the shows. I can’t understand it myself. I would not be able to walk a step in those other types of (things). Now about socks. heh heh heh. I guess that is where my foot fetish shows up. Today I am wearing grey and black wool socks with snowflakes knit into them. :-) Well it is cold outside and I did have to go out. snicker. Anyway they make me happy.

    Heh, heh. The way Rio’s friend packed the first quilling I ordered, I didn’t have to buy packing materials for a year! Oh hay! Are there any quillings left at the store? Heh, heh.

  50. OleyHowlers
    2:34 pm on November 28th, 2012

    T&G, we think this shew will be a really good one, as it is timed perfectly for holiday shopping.
    Melanie and Staff, our mom feels exactly the same about those items. She hates them, and is completely clueless on why so many women have a fetish for the most painful kind. She only wears completely flat ones, and those are either sneakers or clogs or flip flops or riding boots. She actually wears riding boots to her office almost every day in winter.
    Staff, she can never get enough sox. She loves those. Her current favs are the “Smart wool” ones that she buys at the health store.

    Barb is the same way about foot thingy. Kelly and Jessica both wear those spikes that make them about 4-5″ taller (and Kelly is already 5’10”)! We love socks too. Just bought sister-in-law some really nice ones at NorthFace. They are designed to wear out in cold weather all day.

    Got about a doz cards addressed with notes, then we quit.

    Melanie, We here love crab. Fresh Market had a special yesterday for half price on crab legs, so Barb splurged and bought some. They were good, but not great, due to being previously frozen.
    They also had some crab spread which was yummers!

    Okay, totally inappropriate conversation. Zoe was handing out chewies for the Pack’s before our dinner treat. She mentioned she should just talk to the Farmer up the road who does his own butchering about getting the hide of one of his cattle. Then she said, “Of course, I don’t know how I would get it cooked for the dogs.”

    Then I had an image, then a song hit. OHD

    Rawhide? What the heck? Is THAT what the song is about? They are talking about cattle being RAW HIDE???

    Zoe said there was no way. That isn’t the word they use in the song.

    Guess what? I’m a little grossed out.

    Rio!!!!! I just got home to find the blue duck of happiness. I love it, and the frog. The colors are even richer than in the picture and the sun’s eyes sparkle. It’s on an easel on the computer desk so every time I’m reading Chet’s blog, you’ll be with me. Your friend is very talented and I second Wose’s motion that quilling should be her regular job.

    Yay for Gramp’s glasses and best wishes for the show this weekend.

    Barb – we here really like Fresh Market crab dip. Have you checked out their deli and/or dessert case? Yum.

    Goodness I wonder what Melanie was trying to say. It is 7:00 blog time and her posts still have not appeared.

    Computers!…bah!…If it takes that damned busy-place to fold because of crap software, so be it. She will finally get the Turkey-Guts to open an Etsy Shop and see what happens…grunt!…She said she has never been let go early because of networking or software issues in all the busy-places she’s been before…sniff!…Although, she has been predicting a Huge Meltdown ever since the software conversion…grunt!

    Melanie we checked the US Geological Service and they show seismic activity in your area. Perhaps the Newfs should take turns dancing.

    Baseballs hit way in the sky,
    We just want some Stover pie. (do we get two pieces since we also rhymed?)

    Staff, you must have a magic wish, getting a sale with just what you wanted!

    Yea Gramps, now just don’t get into any mischief while the cats are away. Oh, wait, the cats are not going anywhere.

    Rio, Got the package! The quilling is beautiful. We are very happy with it. The photograph doesn’t do it justice.
    The package arrived in perfect condition. Your friend knows how to outsmart the post office.

    SiberH!….Someone here is glad the box made it in one piece and the project too of course!…heh!…It was the box she had that the project fit into, but it was pretty beat up…heh!

    Michigan!…That is the only state that has not delivered on time as it promised…grump!

    Siber-H – Rio’s friend knows how to outsmart the Marauding Goats, too.

    Yes, Rio. The pink tongue is all rolled up and the fly is still there. Poor fly.

    We just talked to Melanie. She has been trying to post something about the song “R a w h i d e” and didn’t understand why it was being moderated. We gently explained to her that there is a famous naughty web site with that same name. Oh, she said. Then she snorted and laughed

    (yelling with an echo) HOLD ON . . HOLD on . . HOLd on . . HOld on . . Hold on . .
    (crashing and banging sounds) Snigglefritz, Carpola, hold still Franklin . . No, don’t help . . NOW ALL OF YOU PULL.

    Whew. I didn’t notice that the Newfs had created a hole in the floor with their dancing. I’ve been stuck in the basement for hours.

  95. Melanie
    8:21 pm on November 28th, 2012

    Everyone is getting their boutique items! Hurrah!

    Macy, I have no doubt that the dancing showed seismic activity up here. They have finally stopped. I’m not sure who caused the hole, but Mac and Mattie are looking sheepish. (dogish?)

    It is time . . Zoë and I had a good day, she’s already to sleep, and I’m headed that way.

    Heh,
    I didn’t know about any raw sites either. Amazing what is out there that you don’t want to know about. snicker. I am glad Melanie is out of the basement.

    By the way I sent Melanie’s package parcel post and it got there today, all the way to MA. However according to Stover, who is much nearer in MI the box I sent to her PRIORITY MAIL, was not delivered today. HUMPH! However it says it was delivered on the USPS website. BStover have you looked????

    Whew! I am glad that BStover got her package. Now I come to think of it she did say that she loved the inner wrapping. Heh. Yup I remember it now. I used my favorite star holographic silver paper. Yummy stuff.

    I have a card here that the Turtleman brought for me to give to Dawson. heh. It is funny. (Background, the Turtleman buys and restores old letterpresses and other printing equipment, see http://www.drewpress.blogspot.com/) He was visiting a friend with an old letterpress (Think 1890’s treadle machines) and got this great card. On wonderful heavy stock paper it shows a Canadian Mounty framed in front of an orange maple leaf and under it it says. CANADA, protecting the U.S. from Alaska tee hee.
    Then you can write anything you want on the inside.

    Staff, does everyone in your family have a pet obsolete machine? Heh-heh

    Barb, have you placed your order for Schwetty Balls? Oops mom said I can’t ask that but what she doesn’t know won’t hurt her (much). I sure hope Bee doesn’t ask for an explanation.

    Royals, mom has some buttons that seem very familiar. Are they related to a bear?
