Random Amazon Review We Like

A great read!
February 04, 2015

Avid Reader on PAW AND ORDER:
This is another fabulous Chet and Bernie book. I love these two characters and the fact that Chet is narrating their  adventures is something that I find quite appealing. I’ve sampled other books where an animal is “talking”, but they didn’t grab me the way Quinn’s books do. I’ve bought and read all of his book so I’m a big fan. There’s just the right amount of humor and danger.

    I agree with the Avid Reader, totally. Nice review.

    Good morning all. Bitter cold here, but no snow right now, maybe later.

    Preparing for a work day and a busy, busy week. Working for Nicole tomorrow, and then heading straight to Kelly’s after work for a weekend of hanging out with the 3 Grands (can’t really call it babysitting). Lisa, my go-to dog sitter will be around here quite a bit and the girls love her. Then next week I work Mon. Tues, Thurs. Plus an all day trip on Wed. to accompany Kelly and Sam, her young Newfie to Madison to the Vet School at UW to have Sammy’s knees examined. Pretty dam busy for an old retired lady!

    Don’t be concerned if I am missing from the blog from Fri. afternoon till Sunday night or sometime Monday.

    How did February become the busiest month ever? I had to start using a second calendar that I carry in my purse. I need to sync home and purse calendars daily! I am reading the blog daily. I just am not posting much.
    Please take care of yourselves.

    Good morning, B&M&L, O’H Martha and everyone else! Quite a nice review and we are sure our HRH will mostly like it, too. (Love the pink underlining!)
    Today may be Thursday but to us it faals like a weekend…why?
    In honor of the Outlaws, have a thirsday full of thievery (but non of it illegal)

    Where are our paws??? FEELS THURSDAY Gah!

    We noticed the top line, but didn’t mention it. We were hoping maybe Bee might not see it. LOL

    HOH, Do you type on a tiny device? We type on a full sized desk top, which makes it easier to type and proof before we submit. Brings to mind the carpenter’s motto: measure twice, cut once! hehee

    Right you are but mom only has an iapw. She likes it, and it is convenient, except for the “typots”.

  8. B.Stover
    9:17 am on February 5th, 2015

    “Read” is derived from the Old English “raedan” meaning to advise. In other words, it began “life” as a verb. In the dictionary there is an informal use of the verb as a noun. (I wonder how and when that started.) However, I am considering which circle in Dante’s Inferno to place ANYONE who uses it as a noun.

    The wind chill here is minus 8 and the dew point is minus 3; the sun is shining and the snow is crunchy. I have to go out in it today…as long as my car starts. Sigh.

    Good morning all.

  9. Herd of Hounds
    9:23 am on February 5th, 2015

    HRH B, maybe the 6th circle…for heresy?

  10. BearSpiritDog
    9:33 am on February 5th, 2015

    Oh, oh…Someones Are in Trouble Now…Snicker.

    Have a Good One, Everyone.

  11. BooBear
    9:59 am on February 5th, 2015

    Mom hates to confess this but she used read as a noun all the time. She thinks is sounds kinda cool. Nice to see the dictionary backing her up. Can I pick which of Dante’s circles you will send her to, B.?

  12. BooBear
    9:59 am on February 5th, 2015

    She can’t wait for daylight savings time, either!!

  13. BearSpiritDog
    10:04 am on February 5th, 2015

    BooBear: Our State is Voting on Whether or Not to Continue Daylight Savings Time. Can You Imagine?..Not Having to Spring Forward or Fall Back?

  14. BooBear
    10:06 am on February 5th, 2015

    They should leave it on permanent daylight savings time. Mom hates it already being dark when she gets home from work.

  15. Masquers
    10:08 am on February 5th, 2015

    and waking up in the morning.

  16. Herd of Hounds
    10:14 am on February 5th, 2015

    And Daylight Saving Time begins the day after the re-start of the Iditarod this year!

  17. Staff
    10:22 am on February 5th, 2015

    I think daylight savings time is silly too. And da*ned annoying.

  18. B.Stover
    10:23 am on February 5th, 2015

    Let’s see….The furies guard Circle Six: “…three hellish and inhuman Furies…bloodstained and wild. Their limbs and gestures hinted they were women. Belts of greenest hydras wound and wound about their waists, and snakes and horned serpents grew from their heads…” (Ciardi translation). Sounds good.

  19. Diane C.
    10:28 am on February 5th, 2015

    Hello All–
    B. Stover and HOH–you could put them in the fifth circle (the slothful, being too lazy to do anything, just kind of hang out submerged under the Styx while the angry fight among themselves above them) since this is a sin of linguistic sloth.
    An article I happened on recently mentioned that ALL of Hell in Dante is characterized by misused language in that there is so much cacophonous noise, growling, gutterals, etc…
    So Hey–what a good start to a crispy 68 degree day here!
    BSD–Oh dear–I hope they make the right decision (I LOVE DST)

  20. B.Stover
    10:29 am on February 5th, 2015

    I agree with Staff about daylight savings time.

    BooBear: If your mom is in Dante’s Inferno, who will feed you?

  21. Diane C.
    10:33 am on February 5th, 2015

    BooBear–Yes, yes, yes! I quite agree.
    Abrupt transition: A recent look through P. Mayle’s “A Dog’s Life” reinforced my appreciation of SQ’s ability to caputr the nature of “dog-ness” in Chet’s voice. The aforementioned books (which I cannot recommend, no matter how you felt about A Year in Provence) features a canine narrator who sounds like a human pretending to be a dog. the only saving grace is the line “To err is human, to forgive, canine.” (Cute, but not cute enough, Amigo…)

  22. Diane C.
    10:34 am on February 5th, 2015

    BooBear–NOT agreeing about your Mom in the Inferno.

  23. Diane C.
    10:36 am on February 5th, 2015

    …also, that mystery word above was supposed to be “capture”…

  24. Masquers
    10:39 am on February 5th, 2015

    DianeC: I quite agree. No Inferno for BooBear’s mom!

  25. BearSpiritDog
    10:42 am on February 5th, 2015

    Diane: No Problemo. When it comes to the Antics of the Otter-Cork, it is always read as You Meant, Not as You Wrote.

  26. B.Stover
    10:45 am on February 5th, 2015

    DianeC: I’ve always thought of Dante’s Inferno as a revenge poem. It seems to me that he had a lot of fun placing people, some of whom were still alive when he wrote it, in various Circles.

  27. Herd of Hounds
    10:46 am on February 5th, 2015

    Since BooBear’s mom did find evidence of her transgretion being justified. We should be more canine and forgive 🙂

  28. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:47 am on February 5th, 2015

    Hell!….I wonder which Circle(s) I’ve been placed in over the years…heh!cough!

  29. Tupper's Mama
    11:00 am on February 5th, 2015

    Rio – it would have to be the circle with the most sulfurous atmosphere.

    Morning everyone. We are chauffeuring Gramps around in the Chili Pepper. So far we have only been tempted to leave him behind once. But the day is young….

    We read a study last year that proved DST is actually causing more energy usage in modern times when people arise and go to bed by the clock instead of by the sun. We find it amusing that some humans attempt to “control” time.

  30. BooBear
    11:14 am on February 5th, 2015

    B, I absolutely HAVE to be fed so you best think of another punishment. Those circles of hell don’t sound like any fun.

  31. dawson
    11:18 am on February 5th, 2015

    Good morning all.

    Barb, Maggie&Lucy: Enjoy the grands!

    Our town voted on the Daylight Savings Time issue in our last election. We are moving our clocks ahead this Spring and then staying there. No more spring ahead, fall back for us.

    ML: Congratulations on your first day of training. We had Fred Meyer in Montana and in Bellingham. They are an excellent store to shop in (good prices, quality, selection) and hopefully a good place to work as well.

    DianeC: Thanks for the warning about P. Mayles, A Dog’s Life. I did like A Year in Provence.

    The library has Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind but I will have to order Sarah Canary from the next town over. I’m looking forward to some chuckles.

  32. BearSpiritDog
    11:31 am on February 5th, 2015

    Rio: Don’t You Know…ALL Dogs Go to Heaven. 🙂

    Dawson: That was the Best News about Your Shoulder being On the Mend, albeit slowly.

  33. Staff
    11:38 am on February 5th, 2015

    I am about 2/3 through Miss Julia speaks her mind. Wow, what a lot of plot twists. Heh. She is not afraid of anything. Yet.

  34. Diane C.
    11:54 am on February 5th, 2015

    B. Stover–Yes! Plus when it first came out, so many of his neighbors would have to read about members of their families ending up in Hell–(I always thought it was kind of uncool that he put so amny of his wife’s (Gemma Donati) family in Hell, but I note that some are also reputed to be in Paradise, so maybe he was trying to be fair.)
    Can you imagine writing something like this about your/one’s own circle of acquaintance, or figures of the time? (Sadly, this is another thing I’d kind of like to see…”…and Michael Vick, to endless combat doomed/Baited by gamblers’ lusts to watch him fight/Finds his limbs torn, and all his flesh consumed…”)

  35. O''Howlers
    12:11 pm on February 5th, 2015

    We agree with BooBear’s mom on DST, and we wish it would be permanent. We think anyone who has to be away from home all day for their jobs would feel the same way. Darkness prevents any of us from doing stuff like walks, hikes, trail rides, etc.
    Our friends who are English majors and work in journalism tell Mom she was wrong to criticize using “read” as a noun, and found sources who prove their way of thinking. Mom has learned to stop criticizing it, and now we all just like to giggle about it (if huskies can giggle).

  36. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:39 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Read!….As a noun rubs my fur the wrong way…grunt!

    12:43 pm on February 5th, 2015

    I think that fate is quit fitting for Michael Vick.

    Dawson, Glad you are not facing surgery and that you are self-mending.

    Not happy about my weekend. Just found out Lily is home sick with the flu, which Kelly and Ben had last weekend. It lasts for 2-3 days with nausea and fever. Puts you down and out. I have no choice but to go, no options. However, I am not looking forward to possibly getting sick by next week, when I have a full schedule. Grrrr.

  38. Thieves!

    Rio: We think we will meet up with you in an inferno somewhere. Not to worry, we always bring snacks with us.

  39. ALR
    12:54 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Barb, I have a sister who cannot get the flu shots (not that the flu shot covered everything this year!) and she swears taking Oregano Oil keeps her healthy. I looked up the health benefits of Oregano Oil and it seems like it might be something that could ward off germs! Of course I would also carry a container of anti-bacterial wipes fr every door knob, light switch and anything else touched often by anyone….like the phone. I have not tried Oregano Oil but it is now on my list. My favorites are D3, zinc and Emergen-C packets. Take care!

  40. ALR
    12:57 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Staff, that Miss Julia is just getting started!

  41. BearSpiritDog
    1:11 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Barb,Magpie,Lucy: One Word…Airborne
    (and ALR’s advice isn’t bad either!)

  42. O''Howlers
    1:12 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Barb, we do not thiink your daughter or grandchildren would want you to be exposed to the flu. Plans can be changed. Mom would never even consider spending time in a home where anyone with the flu is. And she does not know any friends or family who would expect her (to). Sorry Bee.

  43. Staff
    1:29 pm on February 5th, 2015

    I am with the O’Howlers. Any plans I make have a illness contingency plan. Good luck Barb.

    Also buy some masks. Walgreen’s has some very comfortable ones that I wear often. (Walgreen’s earloop style Face Mask) Make Lily wear them too. Dawson wore them when she came down here with a cold and I never caught it and we played cards together!

  44. Zoe
    1:35 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Our Public Radio station ended its fund drive today. Melanie and I always turned up the celebratory music at the end..God Bless America, sung by Kate Smith, America the Beautiful and other songs we would sing along really loud. Mac and I held her picture and we sang too. Mac doesn’t really get the tune, but he barks and slobbers all over me.

    Lots of good times with Melanie

    1:46 pm on February 5th, 2015

    I think I will have to go with the Air Borne and mask options, because these plans are pretty set in stone. Chad is already in Vegas for their annual contractor’s convention. Kelly is flying out tomorrow to join him, so it’s not like they can reschedule for next weekend.

    Hopefully, Lily will be better tomorrow and Baye will remain healthy.

  46. B.Stover
    1:56 pm on February 5th, 2015

    I like Diane’s version. LOL!

    Dante wrote the entire Divine Comedy in terza rima. Here’s a link to an explanation with examples. (Love Shelley’s Ode to the West Wind.)


  47. B.Stover
    2:05 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Zoe: I’m glad that you and Mac sang the song.

    Tupper’s Mama should be making jewelry and Rio’s friend should start quilling again. Melanie would want the good times to continue.

  48. Siber-H
    2:13 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Zoe, Us too. We remember so many good times with Melanie.
    Mom’s grandma watched a Kate Smith program on tv long time ago.

    Barb, I am with all of the others that are saying for you to keep away from illness. My mom, who is not afraid of snakes, rats, spiders, whatever, would be running in the opposite direction.

  49. BooBear
    2:27 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Zoe, good for you for remembering the good times. Mom is struggling with that. She finds herself dwelling on the last year when Dad was struggling and the disease was taking its toll. She is usually fine at work and at home taking care of all of us as well as that dog, but the drive home from work has her thinking sad thoughts. I have told her to buy Dog On It in the audio version to play and occupy her mind. I think Chet will help.

  50. MTMP
    2:33 pm on February 5th, 2015

    We have our mama back today, thank dog. Yesterday she left us from 9:15 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. Bless Angie for coming by on her way home from work to let us out and feed us. We pampered puppies could not put up with that type of mistreatment. We are all headed to our favorite snuggly place for a nap. It is quite Texas chilly here, and a nap is called for.

  51. Herd of Hounds
    2:51 pm on February 5th, 2015

    HRH B, We are some of the most fortunate people on the earth to have had our friend and to have had her invite so many others on to this here blog (DianeC, us, ALR to name a few). She welcomed all with an open heart and gladness. (and an occasional warning)
    ZOE,so great to hear about the singing…a joyful noise with a newf! We here sing along to the air raid (nuclear alert) siren each month. Mom and Lucy and Blondie howl along, Darah Thea rumbles and HONKs and Pookey watches us all as though we had lost our collective minds.
    MTHP, y’all will soon adjust to your mom ML’s new schedule, then y’all can guilt trip her to get more lovers.
    BooBear, You and your mom are such troopers! Keep up the good work. You ARE loved!

  52. Herd of Hounds
    2:54 pm on February 5th, 2015

    (Pookey here) Um, excuse us, the slobbery, smelly Pug kiss is only for #101, right? Not for innocent 3 leggers like me? Oh please tell me a 51 kiss ain’t so!

  53. ALR
    2:55 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Boo Bear, totally good idea to keep an audio story going in the car. Keeps me from hating the drive to and from my Mom’s Assisted Living three times a week. However….those audio books are spendy! I get mine through the library. It was a hoot when I came upon A Cat Was Involved! Also, I so relate to drive time often being disolve time when it comes to grief. I have a harsh grief of 17 years that can still pop to the surface during drive times especially, but driving and tears not a safe therapy.

  54. Tupper and Gilly
    2:55 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Macy – we feel your pain, little MinPin. Mama deserts us so often that we have the SPCA on speed dial. For some reason, they never take us seriously.

    Zoe – thank you. And Mac. We love you.

    BooBear – Mama gets too thoughtful in the car too. So now, we encourage her to put on one of the XM radio stations that need to be sung along with or that make her laugh- Margaritaville (Jimmy Buffet) or the disco station (my dawg, she used to DANCE to that stuff…tee hee).

    Barb – just say NO! Please. we don’t need you to come down with that ugly flu.

  55. O''Howlers
    3:08 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Zoe. Thanks so much for sharing that. We are smiling thru the tears.

    BooBear’s mom, driving is the worst. Mom agrees. Not a drive home goes by without Mom ready to dial her sis for company while she drives. Maybe it is good to use the drive time to quietly reflect, but it sure affects the vision badly.

    Macy, Be patient; your mom needs to do this.

  56. BearSpiritDog
    3:09 pm on February 5th, 2015

    BooBear: Excellent Idea! An Audio Version for the ride home. Chet Would Approve.

    Zoe: We All Miss Her. So Much.

    MTMP: I will now join youse in that Nap.

  57. Herd of Hounds
    3:31 pm on February 5th, 2015

    We Y A W N, er second the nap idea!

  58. Diane C.
    5:05 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Barb–What ALR, BSD, and Siber said, but if you MUST, please also consider lots of fluids and frequent hand-washing. Also avoiding stress (which may not be possible)…
    B. Stover–Terza rima has great charm and is kind of easy to do (as long as quality isn’t an issue and you don’t have to keep it up for more than about six lines). Right now I’m wondering what could be written about people who use “reach out” for “email”,”telephone”, “contact”, “get in touch”, etc., people who overuse “iconic”—aaah–this could be quite therapeutic.
    MTMP–I’m so happy you have your Mom back and are headed napward. I’ll be library-bound in an hour or so and looking forward to it.

  59. Herd of Hounds
    5:08 pm on February 5th, 2015

    DianeC, Off to the library and looking forward to it, obviously not toddler Thursday.

  60. Diane C.
    5:13 pm on February 5th, 2015

    BooBear–Please let your Mom know that if long drives are a fairly frequent occurrence (WHY does that word NEVER look right however it’s spelled?) audiobooks are a wonderful way to tackle all those books you’ve meant to read but can’t seem to under your own power (e.g. Don Quixote, most of Dickens, Anthony Trollop, Capital in the 21st Century). B. Tuchman’s “A Distant Mirror” really made drivetime almost pleasant during much of one school term…

  61. Diane C.
    5:16 pm on February 5th, 2015

    HOH–Haha! They tend to keep me away from the Children’s department so I’m fairly serene even during Homework Club (this may change once we switch to a single point service desk next month).

  62. Diane C.
    5:17 pm on February 5th, 2015

    For anyone who isn’t napping–do you have a favorite line (or two, or more) from a book? Today I was thinking about something Bertie Wooster says about (I think) oysters: “Life for these poor bivalves must be one da#*ed thing after another.”

  63. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:07 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Staff!…Once when my friend was getting groceries she was behind a gal who was wearing a Mask. This gal was trying to order from the deli and it was taking forever as the guy behind the counter could not understand what she was saying….grunt!…Finally she took the damned mask off and ordered her coldcuts…sniff! …I hope you don’t do this sort of thing out in public…chorkel!

  64. Staff
    6:14 pm on February 5th, 2015

    I do it in public all the time Rio. So far I haven’t had problems. I guess I will stay out of Colorado! heh.

    Some people are embarrassed by it but I figure it could be a matter of life and death for me so they can go fly a kite. I was almost a little rude about it there. snicker the HOH and I are hand in hand on this one I think.

  65. Staff
    6:19 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Diane, My favorite last line is from Mark Harris’ book Band The Drum Slowly.

    “From here on in I rag nobody”

    It doesn’t sound like much now, but when you have read the book it makes a great impact. Maybe it was thinking of Melanie and BooBear’s Mom at the same time but I am tearing up here.


  66. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:20 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Staff!…I am not begrudging you the protection of a face mask. I am just asking that if you are ordering at the deli and my friend is behind you, to speak up and pronunciate. Non of that mumbling stuff…grunt!

    Heh heh. OK Rio. I actually am very precise and speak loud and clearly. The legacy of a hard of hearing mother. Probably why I have never had a problem with it. Even on the phone.

    6:28 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Rio, I am about half way thru Sarah Canary now and will take it with me this weekend. Should have lots of down time and plan to finish it. It is very interesting, but I don’t have a clue what is up with Sarah.

    Yes, I am going. There is just NO WAY I could tell my daughter to find someone else at this point. I am committed, and I guess I wouldn’t even consider saying I can’t do it. If I were just going over for dinner I would reschedule, but not in this case. It has been scheduled for a month so I am stuck. The house is big, so I will try to keep my distance if Lily is not better.

    You guys might get a chance to say I told you so next week!

  70. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:28 pm on February 5th, 2015

    Staff!…Did I tell you that we actually saw you at one of my friends family functions a couple of weeks ago??…snort! …Yes! We were in a very small town in the community center celebrating a second cousins 90th birthday, when all of a sudden there you were!…wheeze!…Or maybe it was your Doppleganger, who knows. But my friend went over to talk to you and make sure it really was you…heh!heh!

  71. Tupper and Gilly

    We may have mentioned at one time or another that one of Mama’s favorite books is Dickens “A Christmas Carol”. And one line that has always stayed with her is when Scrooge is confronted by the gentlemen collecting for charity – Scrooge asks, “Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?”. His unmitigated selfishness and lack of empathy for his fellow humans touched a very deep part of Mama’s heart. To this day, when she hears of prejudice, or even perceives in herself a lack of connection to the people of the world, she remembers that line.
    Its one of the reasons she always feels grateful for all she has.

    Staff, we are with you in public and crowded places, especially this time of year.
    Unfortunately it is awkward ar the library with the toddlesr so I have explained to the library staff that I will work on the other side of the building when the rug rats are there (about a half hour before their story time in another room).
    Barb, Airborne, disinfectant wipes,and lysol spray (it now comes in “flavors”, we are partial to lavendar).P.S. Mom even wears gloves and mask when cleaning parrot cages any more, jus don’t want to pass or catch anything.

    I don’t know if I am going to allow mom to nap any more. We started to bark to let her know that it was time to get up and feed us, but she ignored us for nearly an hour. She says time got away from her. Huh, likely story. When the hounds bark, they are trying to tell you something, woman.

    Ok, belly full, yard visited all is wellish, even if late. Oh, wait, Belle is not in the yard. How is she getting out? She was sitting on the front porch waiting to be let in. D@mn dog (mom’s word).

    Last autumn when Nana first arrived in the Hong Kong Airport she was startled to see some People Wearing Masks. Her first thought was that there was an Outbreak she had not heard about.

    Does any of youse know what a Group of Pugs is called? Ready?? It is called a Grumble. You can’t make these things up.

    MP&LL’s Mom, Thank you for that wonderful trip into the beginning of the blog. AS Arte Johnson used to say on Laugh In, “Veeeery interrrresting.”
    ML, When you find Belle out of bounds, put her right back into the back yard and watch her. She should gladly show you “from whence” she escaped. It is trick an old horse doc and farmer told our mom and it works!

    On July 5, 2009 The post was about Chet watching a tennis match and waiting for the tennis ball to pop out of the screen. Melanie said, “our Bess does not approve of zebras. She’s certain those things with the stripes are just bad news. She starts barking. Unfortunately, all the other dogs think she’s barking at something outside and go out to save the world. She looks around and wonders where everybody went.”

    Rio, your friend should receive a letter stating that and giving her a year of free credit monitoring. In the meantime, check credit reports for new accounts opened. Have them issue a fraud alert.

    SO, I have been looking for that one favorite line from one of my favorite keeper books. I can’t do it! I can tell you one of my very favorite titles of recent times……How the Light Gets In by Louise Penny. Read in order is still my mantra, especially with this series! Would you all mind hearing of my five favorite books from long ago? Got to feed and walk Zoe and Murphy the Schnauzers right now. So later!

    This does bring back good memories.

    Melanie had such a great sense of humor!

    Thanks Zoe and Melanie. I found out how to get the man who lives in this house to give me some time alone. Put on Kate Smith and sing along at the top of my lungs to God Bless America.

    I can relate to those who grieve while commuting. After my older brother died, I had to start bringing kleenex on my morning bike ride around the lake. I could not make it around without crying for the whole summer. He used to go to the lake to fish in the early mornings.

    DianeC: I love the Bertie Wooster quote!

    MTMP: I can’t believe your Mum left you alone for that long period of time even if she did send someone over to feed you and let you out. You poor put upon dog!

    I tried reading The Divine Comedy but I didn’t get too far into it before I gave up.

    I got Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind and ordered in Sarah Canary today at the library. They have all the Miss Julia books.

    Rio, How far are you in the book? We may finish before you.

    Must head off to bed. Does anyone else just love crawling in bed at night? I turn the heat down, so it is especially nice to pull up the covers.

    Lily seems to be feeling better and going back to school tomorrow. Kelly says she wiped everything down with bleach and lysol, so I am hoping for the best.

    Night all, sweet dreams.

    Barb, crawling into bed is the best part of my day. It is all I think about once I get up from my nap. Once I get up in the morning I just think about how long until nap time, and so it goes. I hope that getting to work will take some of the emphasis off sleep, glorious sleep, but for now, zzzzz

    Love y’all

    Sleep!….The best part of my day is when I am sleeping…heh!…I think my friend is starting to feel that way to lately…gurgle!

    Barb!…I can’t tell you where we are in the book. It is farther along than you are and I would be giving away vital information if I did tell you anything…snort!…You say Sarah Canary does not make sense, well believe me, KFJ has left little bread crumb clues along the way to make sense of her, but I have not been able to pick up enough crumbs to know the full story yet…chuffle!

    Dawson!….Do you feel the need to twirl round and round a few times before settling in???…sniff!…This is what I absolutely have to do before really committing to all those toys being in just the right places…heh!heh!…A twirl times two usually caps off the evening and everything falls into place …heh!

    Both Dawson and I have lots of pillows and they must be in the right places. I am going to get ready for bed now.

    We have our “winter bed” of fleece sheets and a faux sheepskin quilt. It is absolute bliss to snuggle down in there.
