Random Amazon Review We Like

5.0 out of 5 stars – Terrific, as always! – April 28, 2014

Roger D. Galloway on A Fistful of Collars:
All humans should read this book.
I gave it five stars because there weren’t ten.
Chet is the Jet right to the tip of his mismatched ears.
(“Kind of haiku-like,” says Admin. “Maybe all reviews – of everything – should be in haiku form.”)

    Good morning, everyone! A really wild night here. Had tornado watches here, in fact still under one. Something touched the ground about 3 miles as the crow flies from here but the HOH and POP and sushi and peeps are fine, if tired, after the most exciting storm night they have ever had. Macy’s Mom, I keep missing you ’cause you are on after our bedtime (Mom is getting lazier and lazier).
    Have a tip top Tuesday 🙂

    Different review, but is the syllable count correct for haiku? Thought it was 5-7-5.

    Good morning! We here like that review. Pretty cool, if we do say so ourselves.
    HOH!!! Yikes! Stay close to your maw, so she you can protect youse her.

    Like the review!

    HOH, Yikes! Three miles is just a bit too close. Please stay safe today.

    Staff, What a beautiful sewing machine! And what a lovely photo of Alice M. Last night. She is a beautiful kitty.

    The lovely Maggie is up top!

    Oh, well. Another day of watching the seconds tick by on the clock, and sitting on the couch wasting my life away.

    Sorry. Don’t want to bum youse out.

    Hope youse all have a good Tuesday.

    I agree with Admin: “haiku-like” meaning brief.

    “Heavy rain” here. There were two mallard ducks on the front drive earlier.

    Good morning all.

    Masquers: It isn’t a haiku (but I like the review). A haiku is a Japanese form of poem of seventeen syllables (5, 7, 5) and juxtaposes an element and phrase usually suggesting a season.

    P.S. I’m bringing a journal to begin writing that book we talked about earlier (BSD always says it helps to put pen to paper) In my opinion a guitar with kool jazz accompaniment works too…and Belle Starr is reminding me of another sure-fire solution to everything…online shopping.

    Thank you, B.

    “Happy Tuesday, friend!
    May today’s coffee be strong
    And the day inspired.”

    Here’s a haiku I found online.

  11. BearSpiritDog
    10:34 am on April 29th, 2014

    B: Now THAT’s a Haiku to get the day going!
    Speaking of which…where’s my Bowl of Cawfee?

    We like that review too. Says it all without droning on and on (and making Bee crazy with incorrect grammar).

    Well, the word is Official. Gramp will be home tomorrow. He is pretty close to being back where he was before all this surgery and side effects and illness etc.

    Mama says tonight is steak and salad dinner night. After that, it will all need to be soft, gentle foods for a while. It will be good to have him home, but there are going to be challenges ahead. We think maybe driving is not going to be a good thing for Gramp anymore. But Mama is concerned about how he may react to that idea.

    Yup, challenges ahead.

    We are so happy Gramps is coming home home home, which is ALWAYS the best place to be. T&G, quick! Hide his car keys.

    Gramps!…Back to his normal routine!…snort!snort!

    WIND!…The wind is even more fierce today than it was yesterday…groan!

    Good News from the Royals…Gramp is coming Home!!!

    Yay! Gramps is coming home! I know he and Callie will be so happy to see each other.

    My dearest Masquers, and my VBFF, Please be careful blurring. Lots of strong winds out there!

  18. Herd of Hounds
    12:28 pm on April 29th, 2014

    Go Gramps 🙂
    Rio, wind isn’t fun. it’s fractious.
    Apparently not a tornado here but lots of wind damage (sheer & straight line and not quite a tornado). No injuries, no serious building damage, lots of trees down.

    Hello All–I’m still catching up and about to leave for ballet, but I did want to make sure the O’Howlers household had recovered from yesterday’s exciting afternoon (the cool license plat photo suggests so).
    HOH–Yes, it’s almost exactly like “whirled peas” but not as good.
    Teddy–loved the pix of you and Zeta–such a handsome couple and you are such a gentleman!
    Billy’s Buddy and all Sherlock Holmes fans–Forgive me if you’re already familiar with this, but I had long been aware of (but never read) an article called “The Great Man’s Great Son” which asserts that P.G. Wodehouse’s Jeeves is SH’s natural son by Mrs. Hudson. Yesterday’s comments moved me to try one last Google and I found a some additional references to it, but not the article itself. However, there IS a book available called “In Bed with Sherlock Holmes” that I must have or be in a very bad mood…
    Be well and safe, all…

    Wow – we just went back to see what we had missed out on last night.
    Howlers – Love the license plate. But tell your mom not to rob any banks in that vehicle – someone is sure to remember the plate number.

    Macy and ML – we are glad to know that the medical stuff wasn’t all bad news. We know it is very hard right now, but never fear – your Plunder Companions are always here to talk to you and support you and listen to you. Of course your hearts are heavy, and noting feels like it will ever be right again – but it will. You are lots tougher than you give yourself credit for, and you will get your feet back under you and Plunder On.

    Staff – that machine is a beauty – and we don’t even know diddly squat about old sewing machines.

    Rio – we hereby promise, paws crossing hearts, that we will never click on a link in an email unless we are SURE that it is legit. And maybe not even then.

    Off to go visit Gramp – see ya later

    Rose: I will be checking the forecast carefully (remembering a time when Wolfie was blurring to a plunderer partee and miscalculated coordinates) – WeatherKat.
    Wolfie! Where is that guy anyways?

    Nice haiku, B. Stover! – Admin

    Hi DianeC! The young girl that lives here (now in an older body) loved the Sherlock Holmes Books. She was always fascinated by the way Sherlock solved the Mystery, in part by following a subject’s train of thought, leading him to the clues.

    Tupper&Gilly: Please tell Callie to say Hi to Gramp for us.

  25. Masquers
    1:54 pm on April 29th, 2014

    Nice! A tip of the hat from Admin for B and a kool cave-like foto from CHobbiti.

    Oh sure – when there is a monkey wrench to throw in, WE are the ones designated to pass the news along. Maybe because things are a KAT-tastrophy.

    Well, not a catastrophy, but a plot twist, anyway. Mama wanted to have Gramps bedroom, den and office professionally cleaned before he got home. She contacted the cleaner when Gramp first went to rehab, but his schedule was booked solid for weeks. She kind of forgot about it, since it couldn’t happen for a while.
    Then, this morning the cleaner guy stopped by to say that he had finished one job way ahead of schedule, and could do our job tomorrow. But, but, but….Gramp was coming home tomorrow, and the rooms have to be empty for 24 hours.
    So, Mama went to the rehab, and had to tell Gramp about the surprise. They talked to the Powers That Be, and it has been decided that Gramp will come home Thursday afternoon instead – so he can come in to a sparking clean bedroom, and have a fresh, spotless den to hang out.
    Now Mama is trying to tell herself that she does NOT have time to throw a coat of pain on the den walls……Somebody stop her!

    C. Hobbit–I love the photo. Have you reported back on the food there yet? (If yes, how far back do I read; if no–How’s the food?)
    B and S–Tell your Mama to sit and rest and get ready to meet those challenges. Sit on her if you have to.
    HOH–I’m glad I went back and re-read your first post. I had thought you were talking about “tomato watches” and had been reflecting on how different the rest of the country is–I’m sorry but sort of relieved that it’s really about tornadoes–but I hope you stay well out of their way.

    Zeus – are you loose? Mom snorted when she read that you met your mom at the back door yesterday.

    Speaking of journeys, this is for Wose or anyone on a life’s journey, from Winnie the Pooh:

    ~ Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day. ~

    C.Hobbit – very nice photo of what looks like an ancient, sacred place. Thanks. Keep enjoying the adventure.

    T&G – maybe the doc can tell Gramp he needs to give up driving. That’s what happened with my grandma and it worked without too many tears. Just sayin’.

  33. Masquers

    Blukat: Nice Pooh quote.

    CHobbit: A fantastic picture of the tunnel!

    Good advice from Pooh (he is so wise) to all of us and from Bluecat to T&G: Get the doctor to tell Gramps!

    Zeus! Zeus! Zeusikov!

    Thanks for the break…now I have to go back outside because it is like the first day of Spring here! WhooooHoooooo!

    Love the Howlers plate.

    Stay safe HOH.

    Lucky gramps. I wish I could go off somewhere and come back to clean.

    I got Rick’s old phone, now mine, a cool new case. I feel so hip, heh.

    Nearly gave Angie a fit when I told her I was getting ready for a date. She calmed down when I told her it was girls night out, heh.
    Speaking of which, I really DO need to go throw on something else. Later taters.

    CHobbit, your fotos are a joy.
    BSD, looks like it will be near 80 for y’all tomorrow. We are going down to 70 and one more night of boomers:( We be on guard again.
    Bluecat, Pooh always hits the spot.
    Dawson, start enjoying spring after this winter that wouldn’t end.
    T&G, B&S and Callie, if Golinka gets close to a paint can, brush or roller, grab her pant leg, sit on her and hold her feet down!
    The DDD went to the movies tonight so we are going to watch NCIS with mom.

    Pop spent the afternoon at home with us us us! Zeusikov had the poohs last night. A couple of pills later, and all is well. Must have been that fortune. Heh!
    He was in his crate when Pop arrived home at noon. We put him back in so he wouldn’t get caught.

    Rio, neither Spence or Admin ever give us kudos either.

    Zeus: Good Dog! (or maybe Kat & Meashka are the ones to thank?)

    Rio: SnowBella usually tells us before she goes flying off.
    We have been thinking about her here too.

    Poor Biddy. Her dew claw is turned around backerds after her pit bull event last night.

    When I got home from California Pizza Kitchen girls night out including margarita, Annie was nowhere to be found. She got shut in my closet and tried to dig her way out. One corner of the carpet pad is completely shredded. Way to harsh my buzz, Annie.

    Shenanigans are some of our favorite things along with thieving, ne’redowelling and living up to the description of lovable miscreants that Melanie bestowed up on us. Our Lady doesn’t have travel scheduled for work right now which is good. It means she can help up prepare our study guide for Wyatt’s Intro to being an Outlaw. The first lesson is about one of our core valued: Don’t get caught.

    Nighty nutter butters.

    Wyatt seems to have picked up some Fans along the way.

    Rio I know you went to bed but Mr.Staff and I were out in the muddy garden today pulling out all the old zinnia stalks. I leave everything in the garden overwinter for the birds. But now I am back and have started feeding the birds so we can clean out the mess.

    Journey North says the Ruby Throated Hummingbirds are up at my part of the US so I will put out my sugar water tomorrow.

    Hey HOH have you found any butterflies at your new feeder? I don’t have any out yet. It is still too cold.

    We were supposed to get snow last night but didn’t. They said the same about tonight but then backed off to occasional flurries but mostly rain. It is very windy here. If we lived on the coast they would say gale force winds but since we don’t it is just darn windy.

    ML: It’s true. I am an Outlaw through and through. Pancho, Lefty and the rest of my brothers wondered from time to time if I was adopted because you know, I’m a natural dainty licker with heretofore unseen Outlaw tendencies. But, just a few weeks ago when I tried to make off with a slice of cheesecake when the Giant wasn’t looking we discovered I’m not adopted, I’m just a late bloomer. Not to worry—even though I’m an Outlaw with a checkered past, I will continue to be a dainty licker. I am at your service.

    We are going to take a break from planning Wyatt’s study guide to help Gramps break out when Golinka gives the go ahead. We’ve baked a Slim Jim into a cake—standard issue for any good escape. So he doesn’t fall behind, we’ve give Wyatt some homework. He is to memorize the lyrics for this little tune.
