Random Amazon Review We Like

Very lightening. Good for the soul. Thank you Spencer Quinn for your stories. I have several of his recordings and relisten to them when I need some “happy.” – Beep52 on Dog On It.

Welcome Kate the Great.

    Gooood morning, everyone. Sounds like Beep52 likes OFA. Just peeking out from under the quilt to say that yesterday felt like an Arlo Guthrie day (for those of you who might have a bit more life experience). I was inspected, injected, detected and neglected. BBL 🙂

    Good morning all.

    HRH B: HOH asked that same question. Thank you for the clarification.

    Sharon: I hope that you start feeling better.

    Good morning. Stay under the quilt as long as needed, HOH.
    We here are afraid of lightning.

    G’Day to Some of Youse & G’night to others, namely LizF in Oz.
    Also Hello to Kate the Great in FOC and Beep52 Thanks for the Lightening Review.
    O’Howlers: We are afraid too.

    Nice Sunny Day here. Looking forward to it.

    Hounds Mom, Feel Better Soon.

    BStover: You know, like lightening or heavyening.

    HOH: Peeking only. Stay where you are.

    Sunflowers and tomatoes report. Out of the zillion sunflower seeds I planted only two survived the bunnies. The largest and most magnificent of the two succumbed to the storm. The stem was broke off about a meter below the flower head.(sob) I have brought in inside and into water in hopes the flower may actually bloom. The miniature sunflowers that I bought at the farmer’s market were excellent because they got multiple blooms. But they only lasted about a day before the flower petals were picked off and eaten, the middles also eaten or the whole flower plucked and carried away by birds, squirrels and maybe bunnies.
    The tomatoes are prolific. My favorites (the Paul Robesons are not quite ready yet) are the little yellow cherry tomatoes called “sungold”. Yummy.

    Good morning. We didn’t quite get the lightening either.

    Hope you are felling better today Sharon.

    Dawson, the Paul R tomatoes will always have green shoulders, even when they are ripe. We check the bottoms for color and softness. The very top just gets cut off and discarded.

    Sorry to hear about your wind damage. Is the fallen tree getting cleaned up?

  9. Masquers
    9:55 am on August 8th, 2013

    Speaking of reviews…there’s a good one over on the right.
    Dawson: Sunflowers are the most magnificent of flowers. Sorry to hear of the demise of your best. That must have been some storm!
    Tomatoes plants here are bent over like old crones with fruit tiny and green, but we have high hopes.
    Now…off to get wonderfluffed…BBL

    10:12 am on August 8th, 2013

    I’ll agree with “”, but I am not sure about “lightening”.

    Sharon, Hope you get to feeling better soon.

    Bear, Welcome back. We missed you.

    Good Morning All

    10:19 am on August 8th, 2013

    Dawson is making me laugh. Try saying “heavyening” three times fast.

  13. dawson
    10:43 am on August 8th, 2013

    BStover: I had trouble saying it once.

    B&M: No tree clean up has been done yet except for the tree top pruning I did in order to be able to use the front door.

    I’m going to do some yard work.

    Buffalo had a storm in 2006 that brought all the trees down. I sobbed when I saw my smashed Japanese tree peony.

    I have been tracking the garden this year. This is May.

  16. Staff
    11:09 am on August 8th, 2013

    I have been tracking the garden this year. This is July 2nd.
    About 5 weeks after the first one. The first one was May 26th.

  17. Staff
    11:14 am on August 8th, 2013

    And this one is today. I took it because of the talk of sunflowers. Mr.Staff planted some and the squirrels planted others.

    The Squirrel planted ones are taller and ugly. They are known as ‘oilers’ around here. The shorter ones have multiple heads with a pretty dark center and are only supposed to get 2 feet tall. They are about 3 feet really. They are a floral variety that seduced Mr.Staff with the picture on the cover of the seed packet. He likes flowers with big blooms. He is trying to talk me into Dahlia’s. I will stick to the Zinnia’s.

  18. dawson
    11:15 am on August 8th, 2013

    Mollypop’s Mom: That is a lovely peony.

    My Mom’s Rhododendron Tree is under the big Maple that is down in our front yard. I don’t see how it can survive. Turtleman is looking for a friend with a chain saw so something might be done today.

    It has started sprinkling so I decided to wait on yard work.

    Staff: Your garden is beautiful!

  20. Melanie
    11:22 am on August 8th, 2013

    I am wishing my garden looked as beautiful as Staff’s and Mr. Staff’s.

    Humidity level today is 95%. We’re moving slow today.

    Here are two pictures of some of our flowers.

  21. Melanie
    11:23 am on August 8th, 2013

    Dawson, we have a neighbor who heats by wood. He is taking the limbs and trunk of the old Maple tree.

    And a link for Alaskans in the summer . . (though, we could use them here too!)


  25. Kat
    11:51 am on August 8th, 2013

    Aunt M, I am crying for your smashed peonies.

    Also: I know you would want me to go to Alaska with Mom, so I plan on removing her big, fat, cold-weather gear from her suitcase, and climb on in. When she gets to Alaska and finds me instead of all that gear, she won’t mind a bit. You see, I am very good at keeping her warm without any help from her gear.

  26. Barb & Maggie
    11:52 am on August 8th, 2013

    Great posts, Melanie. Love the flowers, and Here Spot is funny!

    Since we are doing flowers today, here is a picture of the front flower bed that Barb did this summer. Had old bushes torn out of the front and planted a combo of perennials and annuals. We added the petunias for an extra punch of color. One of the petunias has about 50 flowers on it!

  27. Kat

    You guys all have beeeeautiful flowers. Mom tries, but something always happens…

    Your gardens are beautiful!
    Kat: I’m with you…”something always happens”.
    Siber: What about moi? Did you miss me, me, me too?

  29. B. Stover
    12:53 pm on August 8th, 2013

    Beautiful pictures of gardens and flowers.

    Melanie: “Spot” made me laugh. Many Greek words were changed into Latin. The first one I think of is Odysseus turning into Ulysses.

    Please ignore the commode in the background.
    The “photographer” is obviously clueless.

    Today I got 4 more envelopes back in the mail. Two from Barb & Maggie (one with a forward stamp), one from Steve (Go Tigers!), and one from Mollypop’s Mom (with Mollypop stamps with her fierce poufy tail!!). Thank you. It is so interesting to see all the different postmark stamps. Even the ones which I sent out all at the same time have different postmark stamps, some of them quite lousy. I also received an envelope from Spencer Quinn but he was given too much advice on what and how to send the envelope back that he got confused and sent me a business card instead. Heh, heh. I love it. Thank you SQ. See you in Alaska? I’ll go if you go.

  32. dawson
    1:20 pm on August 8th, 2013

    Hi Sam.
    As long as the “clueless” one takes good care of you, the commode is not an issue.

  33. Siber-H
    1:41 pm on August 8th, 2013

    Masquers, Of course I missed you.

    Kat? Aren’t you what happened to the flowers?

    Sam is a pretty kat. I’ll only say this once.

  34. BearSpiritDog

    Awesome One: Are we supposed to Return Our Envelopes to youse?

  35. dawson
    1:54 pm on August 8th, 2013

    BearSpiritDog: Yes. By the way, I mailed your padfolio a few days ago.

  36. BearSpiritDog
    1:59 pm on August 8th, 2013

    Dawson: Thank Dog I saved the envelope! Looking forward to receiving the package.

    Dawson: However…Please Repeat the Instructions……….My Memory is short.

    Sam is very regal.

  39. Barb & Maggie
    2:06 pm on August 8th, 2013

    Dawson, That is quite a promise. If Spence goes, you will go? We are going to hold you to that!

    Rosenfelt’s book is really good. It is partially about making their move from California to Maine with 25 dogs, 3 RV’s and 11 volunteers, but he also writes about some of the 300 dogs they have had as pets in the last 20 years. They have rescued and placed about 4,000 dogs, but many were not considered highly adoptable, so they simply kept them. I think I see some of David in Andy Carpenter, and some of his wife Debbie in Andy’s long term girlfirend, Laurie. The book is written in typical Rosenfelt style, which is to say very comical at times.

    Back from errands . .

    I hate errands
    Errands aren’t for me
    I hate errands
    They are as dumb as dumb can be.

    Sam is looking good! You don’t even notice the background.
    I will catch up with everything later. Need a rest.

    I will say that I had four of my auction items arrive today! It’s like Christmas. Too bad I won’t be keeping any of them.

    Well…So far today I have lost (misplaced) part of my lunch and a garment.
    How in Dog’s name could this have happened?
    It Boggles the Mind.

    Love Kate the Great, and Maya is adorable. RIO’s friend will probably have to quill something in Rio’s likeness.

    I am peeking from under the quilt too. Mama Luna and I convinced Belle Starr my VBFF, to blur back home. I do believe that a certain Giant will be having ice cream cake next week! Sparkles are needed on the cake.

  60. Melanie
    6:33 pm on August 8th, 2013

    BearSpiritDog, I will look at those links tomorrow.

    Ummm, easily on the losing stuff. I lost my cane two days ago. I decided I would see if I really needed it in the house. You know, like having a crutch. Snicker.

    2 days later? I’m not using the cane! My muscles are not happy with going back the way they are supposed to go. I do use the walking poles when I go for my walk.

    I am not foolhardy.

    Peek-a-boo, just peeking out from under the quilt for an update. doing a bit better each day but a “clear, liquid diet”???? GAH 🙁 Get to eat again on Sunday and I live to eat, not eat to live. going under the quilt again.

    Greetings from show land.
    First day is always a little slow, but we still ended up with a pretty good day. We are feeling blessed for a couple of reasons:
    1.Our booth is the first one as one enters the show, and the sunlight coming in the glass ceiling makes our booth just glow,
    2. This is an Native American museum, so many of the customers coming to the museum are already predisposed to Indian items- no sales pitch needed,
    3. The gift shop at the museum has not been very successful, and therefore is not well stocked. And we are. Viola! Customers shop with US after visiting the museum.

    The Hawaiian group is wonderful. The is songs are lovely and their two dancers move as gracefully as water rippling into shore.

    And tomorrow – the museum cafe is featuring antelope burgers. Can’t wait to try them.

    We enjoyed all the pics. Maya is very cute as is Sam. Gardens are lovely and Facebook photos and such are funny.
    Going to bed now to be ready for another big day tomorrow.

    HOH, no eating? Gah!

  72. Barb & Maggie
    9:17 pm on August 8th, 2013

    Antelope burgers! We would try those. I wonder if they taste like deer meat. Let us know.

    Now time to say nighty noodles. See you tomorrow. Sweet dreams everyone.

  103. Staff
    11:07 pm on August 8th, 2013

    Rio, You mean that is NOT what he is supposed to do. I told him that mailing kats is what Dawson wanted. I think Macy told me that.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
