    Gooood morning, everyone! Condolences to OFA. “Cute,little” Darah thought mom was getting impatient waiting for today’s post, so she showed her a new game…water-bowl hockey on the kitchen floor 🙁 Have a transendental Thursday (ah, vocabulary)

    B&M: When Barb has a sec, ask her what time and temp she cooked that chicken, eggplant dish at.

    Good morning. We have not read anything by Vince Flynn. Anyone familiar with his works? Sorry to hear of his passing,

    We were looking at an email from B & N this morning advertising big bargins. Any recommendations? We saw a series that looked interesting – the Fresh Baked Mystery Series by L. Washburn. Has anyone read any of those?

    We saw The Dog Who in paperback on sale, and read a great review by Wookie. It was extremely well written, of course, Wookie being a gentleman and a scholar.

    HOH, I believe it was 350 degrees. If you want to follow the recipe exactly, you can google Rachel Ray’s chicken-eggplant parm. It was rather labor intenseive, but well worth it.

    Sorry. (I haven’t read Flynn or the Fresh Baked Series.)

    Good morning all.

    It sounded soooo delish that mom and her son are teaming up to fix it for a late-lunch party today.

    There are a couple different recipes on her wed site, so if you have difficulty finding it, let us know. When we mixed the bread crumb mix we used fresh basil, but dried thyme as we didn’t have fresh. It was fine. Also she has a recipe for a simple red sauce, but we just used a bottled organic basil pasta sauce. It is delish!

    When we were reading info on The Dog Who at B & N, we noticed that OFA has a birthday coming up on the 28th. Party time!

    Grizz’s brother was a Vince Flynn fan. His central character was Mitch Rapp, a CIA agent. How sad that he was only 47.

    9:56 am on June 20th, 2013

    Mmm? OFA, b-day? Who is going to buy all those candles…of bring the fire extinguisher?

    B&M; Found the recipe, really close to the ingredients they planned and mom always tinkers with recipes. Tanks!

    Partay! We still need to celebrate HOHs good news. Maybe we can have a good-news-take-that-cancer-happy-birthday party this weekend. We can bring hot wings and nutter butters.

  10. Herd of Hounds
    10:15 am on June 20th, 2013

    Par-tay! We are all over it. Sign the HOH up for our faves, homemade liver treats and cheese and crackers (we love both, mom gets iffy when the liver goes into the blender. Why?

    10:17 am on June 20th, 2013

    OH — Sorry about no sweep of the Nationals, but we needed the win more than you did. An 11th inning grand slam is a pretty dramatic way to win (especially after tieing the game in the 9th on a two-out single). The Phillies still did pretty good against my Nats though.

    And Rio, what is up with Canada?

  12. Rose
    10:24 am on June 20th, 2013

    I’ll bring the Swedish Fish!

    Vince Flynn was so young. Mom may have read one of his books, but she doesn’t remember. This says more about my mom than it does the quality of Flynn’s writing. Our condolences to Spence.

    About tonight’s game, Rio said it all…oh woe is me.

    That is a good one up on Chet’s facebookie page.

    Who is bringing the salmon bon bons?

  20. Rose
    11:35 am on June 20th, 2013

    R.I.P. also to James Gandolfini. A fine actor.

    Happy birthday, Brian Wilson, a wonderful musician and songwriter.

    Mama says we can all come to the partay this weekend. The Corgis are coming too, so we have someone to terrorize….ummmm, make that socialize with….giggle.

    The Corgis are bringing gluten free lasagna. The Storyteller is sending bearclaw pastries. We will bring the catnip mousies. Wahoooo!

  23. Tupper and Gilly
    12:06 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Melanie – Melanie – guess what? Dunkin Donuts has just announced that they are coming out with a GLUTEN FREE line of donuts! Wooo hooooo – we will see if we gan get some free samples to bring to the party.

  24. Wookie's dad
    12:12 pm on June 20th, 2013

    That’s right Rio and SiberH. And remember, it is this Sunday that I will be at the Nats Rockies game in person, cheering the Nats to victory (I hope), with Wookie looking over my shoulder as well.

    And definitely a sad farewell to Gandolfini as well. I don’t think I have ever read any of VInce Flynn’s books, but I am familiar with the name. Just something else to add to the “to read” list (please note, infinitive as adjective, not noun).

    Rose: love the tattoo. When I was in college, a my small group of friends nicknamed me “Woodstock.” I had had a lot of speech problems growing up so was pretty quiet. They said that I was like Woodstock–I didn’t speak much and but when I did, they paid attention.

  27. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:43 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Interview!…So my friend says they are going to interview a new guy to work in her busy-damned-screwed-up place…heh!….She was trying to come up with questions to ask the guy because apparently the new boss wants everyone to talk to this poor fella….snort!

    Do you like being kept in the dark about all aspects of your job?
    Do you prefer to be happy or depressed all day long?
    What is your favorite thing about really crappy software?
    Do you like having your head chewed off at any given moment?
    How do you cope with the feeling of hopelessness?
    When you are backed into a corner do you prefer to fight or fly?

    Note!…She’s thinking of writing “R-U-N-O-F-T” on a piece of paper and slipping it to him….chorkel!

  28. Melanie
    1:25 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Ahhh, good questions (?) Riö.

    Rose, I am not allowed to have any tattoos. This is from OTAS. He said that he is the only person who is allowed to put ink on me, and he’s not going to do it.

    Since I have no wish to have a tattoo, I let him think it’s his decision. Snicker

    Here’s one he did the other day . .

  29. Melanie
    1:30 pm on June 20th, 2013

    I have been down the hills one way. My regular doc is pleased with me. Blood pressure good. “Melanie, you are in good health for someone who is sick.” Come August and September I have to do both docs again.

    Resting a bit now. YSAS is at the place, might call me before everything happens. Hoping for no panic attacks.

    After that I go pick up Franklin. He was not pleased about NO breakfast.

    When do I have just a normal day?

  30. Melanie
    1:31 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Gluten free DD donuts? Pondering . .

  31. O'Howlers
    1:42 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Wookie’s Dad: when we went to bed, the game was tied in the 11th. When we checked the score this morning, we see 2-6 !!!!! Jeez! We shouldn’t have jinxed them with the “sweep” word, but we just couldn’t resist ribbing you. 🙂

  32. B. Stover
    1:50 pm on June 20th, 2013

    “To read” is fine. I downloaded one of the Fresh Baked novels onto my Kindle.

  33. Melanie
    2:05 pm on June 20th, 2013

    YSAS says the only thing he can eat (if he doesn’t have another pqnic attack) for forty-eight hours is ice cream.

    Sounds good to me . . If there is any left I’ll bring it the party.

    Pondering what kinds . .

  34. O'Howlers
    2:09 pm on June 20th, 2013

    We are bringing Brats, beer, and yummy chummies.

    Clarkson!…Melanie, what time does Clarkson go under the knife?…gasp!

  36. Rose
    2:35 pm on June 20th, 2013

    RIO! Yep, Brian Wilson did kind of leave the universe for a while, but he is better now, giving concerts, and making music again. I always thought he would be the first brother to die, but he has outlived both his younger brothers.

  37. Rose
    2:39 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Wookie’s Dad, Hope you and Wookie enjoy the game on Sunday! Youse guys will definitely be the Nats good luck charm!

  38. Rose
    2:41 pm on June 20th, 2013

    CHobbit: I like the nickname Woodstock for you. I think Woodstock is so cool. I’ve always like the relationship between Woodstock and Snoopy.

  39. Rose
    2:43 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Melanie, I would be honored to have a tattoo done by OTAS. I even know what I want. I will have to get it done without Grizz knowing. He would not be pleased.

  40. Melanie
    2:52 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Fnigglefritz, carpola and all sorts of nasty words!

    YSAS was all looped up, got to the dentist, THEN was told no one available because people were GRADUATING!


    Riö, tomorrow at 9 am is the NEW time.

    Rose, I like your Snoopy and Woodstock. I would not like to start Grizz being grizzly.

    Now to bang head agains desktop for a loooonnnngggg time.

    3:29 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Melanie: So Franklin saw that everyone else got to eat but him? Wow, I can’t imagine an unhappy, hungry Newf. Someday you will have a “normal” day that you will find very unique and interesting. In the meantime, we enjoy reading your days filled with interesting happenings and mishappenings. Can we expect you to bring one of your special cakes to the party? One for OFA b-day and one for HOH’s cancer-to-the-curb event.

  43. Macy
    4:08 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Howlers, could you leave the brats at home? I do not like having my tail pulled.

  44. Tupper and Gilly
    4:52 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Hey Gang – Melanie just called from having picked up Franklin at the v e t. The surgery was 100% successful – the lump on his ear as an encapsulated fatty blob – NOT cancer. Frank was awake and wagging when Melanie got there, and he is now on his way home to his beloved Zoe, who has been a nervous wreck all day.
    So all is well with Frank, and he should be up and dancing in time for the Par-Tay.

  45. Tupper and Gilly
    4:54 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Macy – tee hee. Maybe we can use that line to convince Mama to leave the Wrotten Kats home too. No “brats” allowed.

  46. B. Stover
    5:12 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Good news about Franklin.

  47. Siber-H
    5:57 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Excellent news about Franklin!! I’m sure Zoe was worried.

    Poor YSAS…I wish I could get him into my dentist.

  48. Belle Starr
    6:09 pm on June 20th, 2013

    I can bring the glue gun and glitter to the party if you can bring Grizz. We will make him sparkly in no time and he will forget all about the tattoo. I still have my tattoo that the Giant drew on my forehead. My Four-legged has licked it several times but it is still there. Now it looks like a smudge of Rio hugging Beau.

  49. c.hobbit
    6:18 pm on June 20th, 2013

    “Now it looks like a smudge of Rio hugging Beau.” Funniest thing I’ve read on this blog! And that’s saying a lot.

    Went to a the vet with Sadie today for a checkup and saw a new vet. When I mentioned that I really didn’t think she was a lab mix as stated in her shelter papers, the vet examined her and said she was thinking she is a Border Collie-Chow mix. So now I am looking up those breeds for insights (particularly on how come she is so good at ignoring me).

  50. Wose
    6:36 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Rio hugging Beau! Now I would pay to see that!!

    Belle Starr: It might be hard to catch Grizz to give him a tattoo. But it would be fun if you made Snoopy and Woodstock sparkly.

  51. Wose
    6:39 pm on June 20th, 2013

    CHobbit: That is certainly an interesting mix. Sadie must be a beautiful girl.

  52. Pancho & Lefty
    6:47 pm on June 20th, 2013

    WoodHobbitStock: Maybe is a thief-lab mix. We’ve been known to do a fair bit of ignoring usually when we are told things like: stop, gentle, and give it back.

  53. c.hobbit
    6:49 pm on June 20th, 2013

    The vet had said that Chows aren’t very nice dogs but when they are in a mix, they are lovely dogs. Looking up their personality it seems to be true that they aren’t good dogs. Sadie’s fur is very fuzzy and soft which does fit the Chow part; however, they are supposed to have a very unusual trait of a blue/purple tongue and/or lips even in mixes and Sadie lacks that. She has some physical characteristics of a Border Collie but is not that energetic–and I’ve noticed no herding tendencies. The vet didn’t seem to think much of having a DNA test done.

    Re: the shedding season…I am trying to turn Sadie from a fuzzy wuzzy to a
    fuz wuz (“was” fuzzy but no more).

  54. c.hobbit
    6:52 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Yes, I think I will go with the thief-lab mix. That makes the most sense. She has been known to carry books, purses, Christmas gifts out the dog door into the yard. Said items are quickly covered with snow and not found until spring.

    I am so determined that she can’t be a lab since she hates water but perhaps there is an occasional deviant lab who doesn’t like water either.

  55. Barb & Maggie
    6:58 pm on June 20th, 2013

    We are back. Barb agreed to a little babysitting job for Lyla and Jack, which turned into 5 hours. Now she is ready to sit and relax on the patio and grill some chicken.

  56. Herd of Hounds
    7:19 pm on June 20th, 2013

    CHobbit: My mama was an Australian Shepherd and my daddy was a chow. I love to “guard” doooors, have one blue eye, purple spots on my tongue, a double coat, curly tail and 3 paws. At times I am Princess Grumpy-pants but most of the time I am a love bucket. I am my daddy dawg’s girl because he always wanted a Pookey. Oh, I HATE water except as a drink.

    B&M: Mom & her “boy” did the chicken/eggplant a real hit! Thanks.

  57. O'Howlers
    7:27 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Hurray for Franklin! Boo to YSAS’ dentist.
    Hurray to Snoopy and Woodstock!
    Brats are coming. No ands ifs or ors about it.
    We used to have a cousin who was a Chow and was very nice in our opinion. Poor guy had to do a lot of moving about thru military relocations, divorce, and home relocations. We aren’t sure if he stayed with his family as we lost touch with them back then.

  58. O'Howlers
    7:31 pm on June 20th, 2013

    A hummingbird is sitting on a feeder directly in front of Mom, and so close she could touch her. This makes Mom cry for some reason.

    Belle Star, picture of tattoo please.

    C.Hobbit . . A long, long, time ago . . some idiot person in the Nova Scotia and Labrador/Newfoundland government decided that all dogs had to go. That really did harm to the Newfoundland breed. Luckily, people in England loved the breed, but had to do some mixing to make sure of not over breeding. One of the breeds they were bred to was Chows. One of our old Fair Ladies had purple spots on her tongue! She was the sweetest of the bunch of nuts.

    Franklin is with his beloved Zoë. Saying that Zoë was worried is like saying Mount Fuji is a mole hill.

    The Pack and I are still bringing ice cream. Haven’t decided which flavors. The fish flavor got eaten by the Pack when I was picking up Frank, and Zoë was outside.

    I am about to put on some Mozart and read. Thank Dog.

    However, I looked up “normal” under the site Dictionary dot com.

    The only definition that applied to my life?

    The definition in topological space . .
    Normal: “having the property that corresponding to every pair of disjoint closed sets are two disjoint open sets, each containing one of the closed sets.”

    Howlers -what a lovely moment with the hummer. MAma knows exactly how your mom feels. She gets the same when butterflies or hummers come to the window next to her computer. She didn’t get all bleary eyed when the bear came to the same window – two leggeds – go figure.

  72. Tupper and Gilly
    9:09 pm on June 20th, 2013

    Oh – we have to tell you – Gramp was walking Callie in the park and met a really pretty long, low dog. The holder of the leash said it was half Great Pyrenees and half Basset Hound.
    Betcha the mom was the Basset.

  73. O'Howlers
    9:11 pm on June 20th, 2013

    T&G, so you think our mom was happy when she was crying? We can never understand the 2-leggeds. Every time we think we got a handle on it, they do something to confuse us. Oh well. Time for t.v. And some pasta.

    By the way, Pop just got done installing 2 programmable touch-screen deadbolts so now youse guys wouldn’t be able to sneak in our tavern room when you want a brew. heh heh

    Oley Howlers, I haven’t seen a hummer (bird not car) this year. We can’t have feeders here. Or to rephrase that, it would not be smart to have feeders here.
    The bee balm is getting some buds. I hope to see some hummers soon.

    Dawson – we are ever so sorry for teasing you about your bat. Karma came and bit us on the behind. Mama was just locking up the house a little bit ago when she heard someone on the back deck, trying to get in the back door. She ran to the den and called 911. While she was on the phone with the dispatcher, whoever was at the door came and tried it again.
    The guys in blue came roaring up the street, and the footsteps ran back down the deck.
    The police guys were here for quite a while, going though the whole back yard. We now have all the doors and windows locked, the back yard flood light on, and curtains drawn.
    Mama says she is very glad she has a good book to read tonight because she doesn’t think she is going to be sleeping much.

    Gup!?…heh!…New one on me…snort!…I have no idea what Melanie is talking about. We just got back from our walk and all are huffing and puffing.. wheeze!…Beau and I laid on the cool bricks of the patio while my friend finished watering her flowers and such….guffle!gag!sneeze!….Now we are finally back downstairs in the coolness of the basement watching The Next Food Network Star…heh!….Wot a Hoot!

    We would like it to be noted that those dam Corgis slept right through all the excitement – even when the cops showed up.

    We on the other hand were the alarm system. We were on the breezeway when this all happened, and it was US, the Brilliant and Brave Wonder Kats who alerted Mama by FLYING into the house with our tails the size of goodyear blimps. That’s when she heard the perp.

    We didn’t come in the house cuz we were scared, mind you. We were just being helpful.

    Corgis are woosies.

    B & S: oh boy. “Wonder Kats”–will we ever hear the end of it {{{{sigh}}}} There will be no living with you. I bet you will be insufferable at the party. [So what else is new?] As long as you don’t end up writing a folk ballad about what happened and want to sing it at the party.

    Locked-Up!…My friend makes sure everything is locked up before we go to our warm soft beds….snort!…But during the day her mother sits around here with the house wide open inviting all the perverts to visit…sniff!…Someone has decided to take all her valubles and important papers to the bank and open a safety deposit box this weekend….grunt!

    Alice and Abbie always tell me when someone is coming to the door before they arrive. Well, Abbie does. Abbie gets up from her endless nap and leaves the room in a flurry. It is very noticeable.

    RIP Vince Flynn, a highly regarded Minnesotan author.

    T&G: Oh yeah, blame the bat. It’s all his fault. I’m sure your teasing had nothing to do with the rest of that scary story but if it did there are several other Plunderers who better make sure their doors are locked up tight! Bwaaahaa haa.

    Hmmm – the Ballad of the Wonder Kats…..got a nice ring to it.
    Let’s see –
    Noble Sage and Basil the Brave
    With slashing claws and fearsome fangs
    Defend their home,
    Defend their Mama
    And saved the lives of the dam Corgis…..


    We’ll keep working on it.

    WOLFIE!! How the heck are you, buddy? What’s this ugly rumor we heard about you auctioning off kitties? We said, no way. Not our Wolfie.
    Now if they were Corgis, well, ya…get rid of them any way you can. But baby kitties? Who would ever want to get rid of wonderful, cuddly, magnificent baby kitties?

    The Herbs were brave
    And could have clawed that knave
    Waking the corgis from their snooze
    And all would have made some ankle tattoo.

    Glad you heard the footsteps leaving to the street.
    Otherwise it might have been Mr. V. Bat.

    Golinka: Yeep! We are glad you head the perp at the door, before said perp opened the door. Please stay safe! It wasn’t too long ago that Agent Wookie 007 protected his family from a would be perp. Our Lady has two shotguns with her and the doors deadbolted for the night. We are locked and loaded. Twice.

    Mama says since we don’t live in the wilds of Alaska, we can’t have a shotgun. But tomorrow she is going out to buy a SuperSoaker water gun. Bet that would discourage most perps – being drenched from head to toe. We think she should load it with hot sauce!

  109. Pancho & Lefty
    12:41 am on June 21st, 2013

    B&S: Good idea. Maybe we’ll sneak some hot sauce in the shot gun. You can never be too safe. Mace wouldn’t hurt either. Maybe sometime our Lady will tell the tale about the time the Giant gave her a can of mace when she went on a dog sledding expedition. Nothing says love like a defense spray.

    Night nutter butters and attack kats!

    You really need to know the entire program in order to achieve this.
    At the same time, you should be doing exercises that specifically target the abdomen. Since it does not mean much, it can be used as a sales gimmick,
    but often this term is better than conventional in another way they may
