    Good Morning and Happy Saturday all! Mom and Dad have been to dances where Ray Price was performing (in his later years, though). He always had good dancing music.

    Good morning. We checked out the link with all the great Anchorage restaurants. They sound great! Now we are wondering if Mom would have been wiser staying right in Anchorage? She does love to eat. Hmmm
    Pop thinks being midway between Anchorage and Willow is still going to be the best.
    So Dawson and Barb? You know there is still room at the Hobbit Hotel. Please come Way Up North to Alaska!!!!!

    Good morning all. We always like Ray Price too. Never got to see any live performances though.

    Howlers, we are opting out of the trip way up north. After Barb’s last trip by plane, she is declining to attempt another trip out of Chicago. She has concerns about winter travel and feels really bad about it, especially with all the Plunderers going and getting to stay at the Hobbit Hotel.

    She would like to go east by train in April or May. Are there others who would join her on Amtrak? I know several have expressed interest in a meet and greet in MA.

    Good morning, everyone! Ray Price, always a smooth voice. Maybe a book, “Eating A Way Through Anchorage” by I. M. Phatt. Hobbit: The Simpson house, mom thinks she had seen it before but even though she isn’t afraid of most colors, thinks that would be a bit manic to have lived in. Hope BDS, Masquers and Nana get hot water soon (not get in hot water).
    Have a saturating Saturday :) (Wrapping, shopping, entertaining, raining, white shitake, resting or whatever).

    Good morning from the Prudential Mall in Boston. 15 minutes til the show opens and the hoards of customers charge in waving fistfuls of cash and credit cards.

    And 80% of them NEED Native American jewelry.

    We are nothing if not positive.

    Good luck T & G’s maw. Lots of buyers are coming your way.

    What is it with the hot water heaters. Looks like ours might have gone out too. It was put in in 2004 or 2005, which makes it 8 or 9 years old. Is that all the longer they last? Ours has not had heavy use, so it is a bit surprising.

    Barb (and Maggie) Dawson and I are still talking about it but (so far) it would be early in the spring. About the second week of March right after we get home from AK. This is to suit Dawson’s itinerary and Dad’s birthday. It would certainly make for a busy time in Plunderland.
    So far it is all talk, no action. I have talked with Mollypop’s Mom who suggests a side trip to Niagara Falls (and to the Canadian side-get your passport renewed) And after that a trip by car to Melanie’s and Amalia’s. Then back by van to MPM’s and back on the train.

    So now you know where our thoughts are.

    Amalia, Did you remember the new batch of bears this weekend?

  10. Herd of Hounds
    10:17 am on December 21st, 2013

    Mom didn’t mean to start a hot water heater trend :( Hers was 25 years old and put in when the house was built. Was “rode hard and put away wet”.

  11. Masquers
    10:30 am on December 21st, 2013

    HOH: Haven’t gotten in any hot water yet, but not for lack of trying. New heater is in place just needs one more connector part and then we are good to go.
    Ours also was installed when the house was built in ’91. It has been a trooper lasting these past 22 plus years.
    B&M: Believe the life expectancy is 15 years for most appliances (or as someone said…about 10 minutes past the warranty).

    Staff – last week’s show was SOOOOO bad, we were able to take the time between the shows to actually do Christmas shopping and wrapping etc. No need to bring any new inventory this week. We were well stocked. And we don’t even unpack the van between shows – everything but the suitcases, laundry and cooler stays right in the van so we CAN’T forget it.

    With age comes wisdom.

    The next door neighbor just came over and it appears that the pilot light was off. He restarted it, so let’s see what happens from here. Fingers and paws crossed.

    Staff, that would be workable for Barb too so keep us posted.

    HOH, your expression is one we have used here. Refers, of course, to a horse who wasn’t cooled down properly. Years ago a guy Barb knew who was trying to be cool, said “He was rode wet and put up dry”. LOL

    BTW, How is Fern?

  16. Buddy and Leno
    10:42 am on December 21st, 2013

    Why does anyone need to heat up hot water anyway, if it’s already hot?

    Anyway. … A gathering sounds like fun. We all need to renew passports here, mine’s just expired. ‘and Melanie’s and Alena’s have also expired. But Melanie’s aid has been talking about all of us going to Niagara Falls. I haven’t been since the one time Melanie took me in 1999. Wow, what an amazing place! While we’re not all that far, it takes some planning and forethought to get Melanie going for travel these days. I mean, outside of the passport issue.

    And…Ray Price. I’ve always like Ray Price. I expect Melanie thinks he’s far too old school for her liking, but I’ve always been kind of on the same page as Bernie when it comes to my country music. This modern crap is mostly garbage if you ask me. Which, of course, yu did not. This about sums it up for me:

    Good morning, everyone!

    My boys are satisfied with their appearance on the Tricia show. I haven’t heard all the details, but “Chad is not the father Jace, and Breena has been faithful”.
    Yikes, imagine airing your private affairs on TV for a lousy $350.
    Unbelievable. At any rate, it will air sometime during the second week of January.
    I’ll let you know.

    Tupper&Gilly: This would seem to be the Best Weekend for Last Minute Shoppers. May they all gather ’round your booth with ooohs and aahs and wallets full of cash.

    Thinking of Ros, Sadie, Fern and those under the Quilt. Sending Powerful Positive Healing thoughts to all.

    Our Beautiful Winter Snow has mostly melted overnight with the rain and warmer temperatures. Perhaps it will not be a White Christmas after all.

  19. Buddy and Leno
    10:51 am on December 21st, 2013

    Wolfie…wow…unbelievable. Only $350? Well, $350 and I suppose spiffy hotel accommodations. And a trip to New York. Or somewhere. But still. Couldn’t pay me enough.

  20. Masquers
    11:04 am on December 21st, 2013

    Thanks, Wolfie. The show will be fun to watch.
    Buddy&Leno: Opry style was never Mom’s thang but these days it is sounding better & better.
    B&M: Sounds like it may be a simple solution to your water heater problem. We had thought of replacing only the elements in ours but, considering its remaining life expectancy, (a few days, hours?) opted to get a new heater instead.

  21. Siber-H
    11:32 am on December 21st, 2013

    Buddy, Mom agrees with you about country music. The new stuff mostly sucks. We listen to the classic country music station.
    I am also a Texan, but mom is not.

    Ray Price was one of the country music greats. sniff

  22. Siber-H
    11:37 am on December 21st, 2013

    English is a foreign language to me but it isn’t because I am from Texas. It is because I am a Siber.

    Royals, best of luck at the show this weekend. Paws crossed that these shoppers realize that time is running out for them and they need to spend, spend, spend.

  23. Buddy and Leno
    11:38 am on December 21st, 2013

    Wow! We just got a box from Wolfie! Thanks Wolfie! Delish!

  24. Buddy and Leno
    11:40 am on December 21st, 2013

    I should clarify that it was not the box which was delish. It was rather the contents of said box. I expect that the box is not very tasty at all.

  25. Herd of Hounds
    11:41 am on December 21st, 2013

    Hey, know what you get if you play country music backward? You get your truck back, your girl back, your dawg back. Ok, done being a smart donkey for a while.
    B&M, hope your hot water is fixed.
    Mom is with Buddy on the baring one’s dirty linens for all to see. (We are all strange enough no need to let everyone else know.

  26. Barb & Maggie
    12:00 pm on December 21st, 2013

    Wolfie, Isn’t Cody Jace’s father? We are confused, and did they go on the show saying Breena was faithful or unfaithful? Inquiring minds want to know.

  27. Pancho & Lefty
    12:01 pm on December 21st, 2013

    Wolfie: Are we reading this correctly?—Baby Jace is not Chad’s?

    T&G: Is this the same show that your folks met the Stormy Kromer lurker last year? We wonder if he still lurks.

    B&M: Was it something we stole or didn’t steal that made you change your mind about coming north to Alaska? Now, we have these manners tha we’ve, er, borrowed from someone and we have no idea what to do with them.

  28. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    12:35 pm on December 21st, 2013

    Cody is Jace’s father, but for some reason he decided that Breena had been unfaithful with Chad. I guess he needed proof. This is the reason why Cody has (finally) decided to get professional help.

  29. Barb & Maggie
    12:41 pm on December 21st, 2013

    OK, think we got it – Chad is not Jace’s father, because Cody is. Maybe they were saying that Chad could be the father and then disproved it by the DNA testing. Oh boy, oh boy, Wolfie!

    P & L, you didn’t do anything wrong. Barb realized last month how much she does not like to fly, and generally isn’t big on leaving home at all. Thinking about all the things that can go wrong with winter travel sort of freaked her out. And especially having to cope with it alone, at least till she makes it as far as Seattle, did a number on her confidence.

  30. O'Howlers
    12:44 pm on December 21st, 2013

    Barb, We were afraid that was going to happen when you had to fly in the bad weather. Carpola!
    Wolfie, The show does sound interesting, in a funny sort of way.

    12:55 pm on December 21st, 2013

    Did anyone notice all the bling and sparkle on Ray’s suit?

    Yes, funny in a Jerry Springer sort of way. We still want to watch it, even though we turned in on yesterday and got a little taste of it. A very bad taste if you ask me.

    Barb is in the kitchen doing some prep work for later. She is taking a salad and a cheesy potato dish to Jess and Josh’s this afternoon. She is taking a copy of The Sound and the Furry for Jessica’s mom for the gift exchange. She loves the books and has read all but the last one. Jessica is making a turkey and a standing rib roast. Yum. Maybe Barb will bring a doggy bag for moi.

    Hmmm. RIP Ray Price.

    Our furnace is out. Amazingly, the man who lives in this house is here to take charge. I’m going into the bedroom where we have a heater. The last time this happened (of course on a weekend) the man who lives in this house was gone and I had trouble finding a heater man. They were all out in the bush working for oil and gas companies. Grump!

    Barb!…Someone here feels the same way about Winter flying….grunt!…Also Spring, Summer and Fall flying,…wheeze!

    Postal!…Someone has finally come back from her very last visit to the Postal Office…wheeze!…It was not too bad because they had 3 people working the front desk. Usually there is one poor soul trying to take care of a room full of grumpy people….gurgle!…But today, everyone was in a good mood because the line moved along merrily…snort!

    Dawson, get your mucklucks, hats, mittens, down jacket and blankts and get to that bedroom until the HOUSE is heated. You will turn into a Dawsoncicle otherwise.

  50. BearSpiritDog
    2:28 pm on December 21st, 2013

    Royal Mum: What’s this…Now a bomb scare? What Sicko would do such a thing?
    When Nana worked in the Ahmanson Towers on Wilshire Blvd in L.A. bomb threats were the norm. The British Consulate was in the building and they were constantly being targeted. Employees were promptly ordered to the parking lot across the street until the bomb squad had determined it was a false alarm.
    Hopefully this situation will be cleared up quickly as well.

    2:34 pm on December 21st, 2013

    What’s this? We just got home, and read that T&G’s folks had to evacuate the show? Oh my! Hope they can come back in soon.
    Blubber blubber gulashes!

  53. Barb & Maggie
    2:54 pm on December 21st, 2013

    What next! It is probably a false alarm, but better to be safe.
    Certainly won’t help the sales though.

    Potato casserole is in the oven. As soon as it is done Barb is heading out. Hopefully she will be able to drive home later. If not Josh will have to drive her home. So far snow is holding off and mail roads are salted.

  54. Siber-H
    3:02 pm on December 21st, 2013

    Macy, That cake looks good….don’t care what it does or does not say. “Have a nice day” is one of mom’s big pet peeves in this country.

    Buddy, That is funny!

    I’m almost sure there is no bomb, but it takes law enforcement forever to clear a scene like that. GAH

    I’m happy because winter is officially here. Mom and Dawson are happy because the sun is on its way back North.
    Dawson has reason to celebrate. Mom does not….not living here where the darkness isn’t that long.

    The Winter Solstice has arrived! Thank you for that video, CHobbit, and Buddy&Leno your link with all the delicious words made me laugh.

    3:29 pm on December 21st, 2013

    HOH, these potatoes are always requested, but contain almost nothing good for you. Potatoes, mayo, sour cream, Velveta cheese, green onions, baked and then topped with crumbled bacon.

    Forgot to mention that we loved MPM’s stamp. Thanks for reminding us Bear.

    Rio, We are trying to picture all the gifts connected by a long ribbon. How do people open the packages?

  63. Pancho & Lefty
    3:33 pm on December 21st, 2013

    B&M: Maybe we could act out and then you’d have to come north to Alaska to tell us the straighten up an thieve right. If that plan b won’t work, we need to figure out how to wrap manners. We’re going to give Thomas a Christmas gift to Belle Starr.

    We want the Royal’s folks to be safe. This is the most important thing, but We are upset that the Royal’s folks are going to miss out on making sells. This is their livelihood that is being played with if it is a false alarm.

    No bomb( of course). Just a shoplifter, trying to get away with stealing during the evacuation. But of course, a lot of people wnt home.
    …..sigh…..

    Rio – lift your sad little Pug heart in joy. It is NOT Christmas that is bad. It is the commercialism and greed and snarking that is bad. Oh sure, we would love to have a shopping season that would make life comfortable until spring, but if it isn’t meant to be, we will cope.
    But Christmas is lovely and wonderful and joyous and happy. It is a time to remember loved ones and smiles and it is a time to do annonymous and fun good deeds.
    In other words, don’t let the Scrooges get you down. It’s YOUR Christmas and we wish you a Merry one, you grumpy old pug, you

    No b o m b ( of course). Just a shop lifter, trying to get away with stealing during the evac u a tion. But of course, a lot of people went home.
    …..sigh…..

    Rio – lift your sad little Pug heart in joy. It is NOT Christmas that is bad. It is the commercialism and greed and snarking that is bad. Oh sure, we would love to have a season that would make life comfortable until spring, but if it isn’t meant to be, we will cope.
    But Christmas is lovely and wonderful and joyous and happy. It is a time to remember loved ones and smiles and it is a time to do annonymous and fun good deeds.
    In other words, don’t let the Scrooges get you down. It’s YOUR Christmas and we wish you a Merry one, you grumpy old pug, you

    Ummmm….. Just heard from Melanie. Their beloved Ros felt the need to cross the bridge today. Not sure that Melanie will be around this evening. She has suffered so many losses in such a short time.

    I asking all of you to send my best friend your support, even if it is just with a prayer in your heart. We need to lift her with our love.

    Thanks

    Holy Moly! A bomb scare at the Pru? Hope there is still an opportunity for people to spend cash at the Royal booth.

    Thanks, youse guys who I have received cards from! The HOH card was funny, and I, too, loved the stamp on MPM’s card.

    Dawson and Masquers, hope you get your heat back soon!

    Wolfie, Thanks. I received Wolfie’s Best Toffee today! Yipeee!

    My heart fell to my knees when I read about Ros. So much loss and uncertainty. Love to Melanie, Zoe, and YSAS.

    Our girl Angie took Holly to the V E T this morning and she had biopsies. The Dr. didn’t think there were any C cells in there, but they have to go back in two weeks. Prayers for our little Holly.

    Holly loves her babies.

    Melanie and Zoe — Words do not begin the express the sadness that this latest news brings. It has been such a difficult few months for the two of you in so many respects. But please know that whatever comfort can be offered up, you need to look no further than to your Plunderer friends here at Chet’s Blog.

  92. Buddy and Leno
    5:42 pm on December 21st, 2013

    Melanie, I’m so sorry to hear this news. Prayers and positie vibes to you. We lost Chet at the beginning of this year…it was a very rapid decline. Never easy to see them go.

    Oh, my heart. My heart hurts for Melanie and Zoe.

    But it’s true, what Wookie said. There was a huge celebration today, with games and happy romping and cheese that grows on trees. I know this because Teddy told me so.

    Still, our hearts are heavy on this side of the bridge.

    So much sadness. This latest is just too much. Oh melanie and Zoe, our hearts hurt for you. How can you be expected to go thru so much hurt? And yet, you both are so strong, i know you will cling to each other and you will endure. Know that we are with you in spirit.

    Macy, why did Holly get biopsies? Please forgive us our memory loss. It is just that there is so much, so much.

    Holly has several lumps on various parts of her body. Angie had them looked at last year, but that V E T said they were nothing. This year the new V E T said she wanted to biopsy them.

    Holly is a chug, chiwawa pug, and is the reason we got Belle, who is nowhere near as cute as Holly. Too much pug, and not enough wawa, just my opinion.

    The Buffalo Bills are all coming in now. They stay here the night before a home game. They have a big dinner in a conference room and then a big breakfast the next day. My neighbors tell me there are usually about 40 or 50 fans waiting for them in the lobby in the morning. Not me – I’m looking for Pat LaFontaine.

    Just got back from the party and heard the news about Ros. Our hearts are heavy thinking about all Melanie and Zoe endured this year. It is just too much. Wookie’s report did make us feel a little better, just knowing that Ros is romping with the rest of her pack and feeling like a playful puppy again.

    Keeping good thoughts for Holly, who is more Wawa and less Pug, according to Macy.

    We need something silly right now, and “baby” Darah is it. She has always been a mama’s girl and not adventurous. Tonight we’ve had lots of wind, so she hid under the POP cages and barked…er, honked. Mom took her to the bedroom to try to calm her. Lying on bed when the darling dozer jumped up and HONKED. On looking, mom saw a cobweb from the ceiling was frightening her.Mmm chicken dog or bad housekeeping (mom knows the answer).

  106. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Sammie!…snort!heh!heh!…Tell me, is Molly’s Maw mad at me?..sniff!….She never talks to me and dismisses all my questions. It’s not like I have that many burning questions for her either …grunt!…But she ignores me completely…wuffle!…Although, the truth is I am used to being ignored…chorkel!

  109. Herd of Hounds
    9:43 pm on December 21st, 2013

    Rio, I’m sorry, I didn’t think your question if I was living in a sports hotel was a real question. I will say it’s a hotel that has apartments on the top floors. They made a deal with the Bills for two years to have them stay here before home games.

    Having Pat LaFontaine live here is not really a sports thing. Pat probably thought like I did that this was a nice place to live. He has a big three-bedroom apartment with all the amenities. We have a swimming pool and a restaurant with room service. Housekeeping is available. Indoor parking. All he has to do is watch out for me!

  112. Staff
    9:57 pm on December 21st, 2013

    I have been thinking about Roz and decided that there were so many of the Plunderers friends up ‘there’ that we can probably have a second branch ‘over the rainbow’
    I know Roz was welcomed with open paws by her many friends. Although it is hard to say goodbye down here we will never forget those who have gone before.
    I am glad Roz didn’t suffer too long down here and know she is running and leaping like a young puppy in her new playground. Hugs to Melanie and Clarkson for their loss.

    Weekend!…I have to say this weekend has been argument free so far…sniff!…Everyone is being nice to each other and avoiding those “buttons” that when pushed things go awry very quickly…sniff!…Speaking of which, I wonder how ole Fern is doing tonight….snort! …She has not posted today. This could be a concern….whiffle!cluck!

    Hey- look on the bright side. You could have a bunch of hot wings and beer, and then do a Pugish “emination” into the box, seal it up and send it to someone special to open up.

    Tee hee

    So, about the cards. Yup, problems big time. I sent out cards in the packages of those who won my auction items. Then I forgot who got them and just started at the top of my list. Then I got stalled and never got past the B’s. However the list is in wonderful alphabetical order.

    Yesterday someone posted that it was the last day to mail before the holiday and I just lost it completely. Soooo. Oh well.

    I did get a few cards here. One from Nana which made me very happy. Maybe I will send out Valentines Day holiday cards.

    Whilst they do not completely block the light, they allow you to soften it during the day so that you can still enjoy the sunlight without it being too bright or harsh.
