Random Amazon Review We Like

Chet and Bernie mysteries are my new love… characters are well developed and the storylines are great. I’ve read three so far and can’t wait for more…

– Victoria Heckman on Dog On It.

Welcome Dirty Harry (and wasn’t there a Cool Paw Luke quite recently?) Here’s Dirty Harry:

    Good morning all. Dirty Harry is cute in a scruffy sort of way.

    We have tomatoes up the ying yang, as Chet would say.

    Yawn…good morning everyone. I’m at the airport waiting to board. My Internet access may be limited for the next few days. I’ll be thinking of all youse.

    Barb & B: Does it ever feel like you are the only one awake in the whole wide world (whirled)? Am I turning into another Rio?

    Good Morning, Good Morning!

    Dirty Harry, That’s quite the nose you have.

    Almost a Ripe Tomato here…Almost!

    HOunds: Good name for this Monday.

    SnowBella: Safe Travels!

    Good jet-lagged morning all.

    The trip was wonderful, literally, filled with wonder and a different view around every mountain. Alaska beauty is almost overpowering. One of our guides said it well: Alaska enters your heart and won’t let go. It tugs at you until you return…

    Mom will post pictures after she gets organized. That may take some time.

    Loved the e-story. I like getting to know Chet better with each new work. Good job, Spence.

    I missed you guys. Today will be laundry day and catch-up-with-the-blog day. Later, ‘gators.

    10:10 am on August 19th, 2013

    Sharon: I’ve never had the feeling of being the only one awake probably because I’m not a morning person and don’t get up early.

  11. Herd of Hounds
    10:39 am on August 19th, 2013

    Ah,B: you do not have a 7 month old alarm clock that awakens you at 6..hit her snooze, 6:30, hit her snooze again, 6:45. Guess she’s afraid we’ll miss the 8 a.m. “baby breakfast”. :/

  12. B. Stover
    10:42 am on August 19th, 2013

    I haven’t set the alarm since retiring. What is “baby breakfast”?

  13. Barb & Maggie
    10:54 am on August 19th, 2013

    To answer Rio’s question from yesterday, no I don’t think Chicken Pot Pie made the Dishlickers cookbook. I will tell you how Barbie makes it if you are interested.

  14. BearSpiritDog
    11:02 am on August 19th, 2013

    We continue to be Amazed that Under the Dome is available in HD and commercial free on Amazon Prime.

    Barb&Magpie: Chicken Pot Pie? Are we interested? Yes!!!

  15. Herd of Hounds
    11:15 am on August 19th, 2013

    HRH B: It is when we feed the “babies” (aka dogs).

    The Pack Alarm works later and later as they grow older. snicker.

    Howdy to Dirty Hairy Harry!

    This morning I have mailed DAWSON’S ENVELOPE! Yeaaaaaaaaaa . .

    We then struck out on our major areas to walk the dogs. Pool time for Pups later today. Us? Not so much. Cold.

    Time to be a Momager.

    Melanie: Haven’t laughed that hard in a while 🙂

  20. Siber-H
    11:59 am on August 19th, 2013

    Melanie, ditto to what HOH said. That is funny!! I am going to show it to dad. I’m still laughing.

    Bluecat, welcome back, looking forward to pictures soon.

    BSD, Chicken Pot Pie, a little labor insensive, but worth it.

    Put whole chicken in heavy cast iron pot, partially cover with organic chicken broth. We like to use a stewing hen if possible, as there is more fat and the meat is more tasty. If using a regular fryer, add a little butter on top of the chicken. Cook about 2-3 hours in 325 degree oven in covered pot. Less time required for fryer. Remove chicken, set aside and remove all meat from bones after chicken has cooled.

    Thicken liquid to make a gravy (flour or corn starch, your choice). Add veggies of your choice and the diced chicken meat. We use potatoes, carrots, beans and corn. You can also use the frozen mixed veggies and just add your own diced potatoes. Partially cook, 15-20 minutes, then put mixture into casserole dishes. Add pie crust or bisquick biscuits to the top and bake @ 350 till topping is done. One whole 3-4 lb chicken will make enough for 2 or 3 casserole dishes, serving 6-8.

    Wake-up Time here is 5:55. Why? Dog only knows. Actually the true wake-up time is 4-ish, but then we hit the mental snooze button for some added zzzs.

    Melanie: LOL! BTW: #2 son once worked for FED-X so these answers sound perfectly normal to us here.

    Thank You, Barb&Magpie. The Recipe will be copied and added to our Dishlickers Cookbook.

    G&BB: Love hearing that Gus is getting lots of loving. You are in our thoughts.
    B: I quite agree. Retirees don’t need no stinking alarm clocks.
    Welcome back Blukat! Can’t wait to see the photos.

  24. c.hobbit
    1:23 pm on August 19th, 2013

    Bluecat: Alaska’s beauty is almost indescribable. Glad you had a great adventure and are home safe and sound.

    HOH: yes, animals are the best alarm clocks with their wet littles noses. They even work when the power goes out in the middle of the night–they got me to work plenty of times without being late. However, the concept of weekends and sleeping in is hard for them to master.

  25. Masquers
    1:36 pm on August 19th, 2013

    If you want to hear an “alarm” just forget to feed moi breakfast on time. Heh. Staff knows what I’m talking about.

    Retirees that have a Husky that has to get to the dog park before the sun comes up in the summertime need an alarm clock. I keep telling mom to hang in there just a little bit longer. It will get cooler and she won’t have to get up quite so early.

    BlueKat, tthat sounds like a great vacation. Is that polite enough? Can I ask her about the pictures, NOW? Can’t wait to see your photos, when you are ready. what do you mean wait? Now, I want them NOW!

    HOH, will check as soon as I can move. Taken a bit of a restzzzzzzzz.

    3:11 pm on August 19th, 2013

    Masquers, about seeing the sun coming up…mom would rather not have to see it come up EVERY morning. Me, I come home from the dog park and take a nice nap.
    Mom does like the mornings when she can see the moon setting in the West

  40. B. Stover
    5:39 pm on August 19th, 2013

    Who/what is Miles and Sketches of Spain?

    Siber-H: Lobster rolls are lobster served in a kind of bread or roll. They are very good.

  41. Herd of Hounds
    6:14 pm on August 19th, 2013

    HRH B: Miles should be the jazz musician Miles Davis and Sketches of Spain is an album he cut in the early ’60’s. Really smooth.

  42. Masquers

    I love lobster, but have never had lobster rolls. Are they anything like salmon rolls? I would settle for some albacore tuna right now.

    Siber-H, the Pack would like to have them. We had to guard our dinners.

    Mattie is convinced there is something across the river on the island. I don’t see anything, but her nose is usually correct.

    Just finished supper. Now that it is really hot out I decided to make chicken soup with dumplings. I make the Polish dumplings. Soft and fluffy floating on top of the soup. Not the Norwegian ones that are hard and lumpy and sink. I also used potatoes, corn, carrots, onions and basil from our garden. The potatoes are HUGE this year. Must be the manure we put in the garden for the first time in about 15 years.

    It was yummy and my tummy is full full full.

    Mr.Staff makes Chicken potpie. But he uses boneless skinless chicken breasts. It would never ever get made if he had to go to all the work of roasting. It is good anyway it is made.

  61. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:37 pm on August 19th, 2013

    Buuurrp!….We just got done with eating our supper…snort!…Spicy chicken stir-fry from left-over fajitas…heh!heh!…Beau likes it spicy. He gobbled up the chicken and then licked his bowl clean. I had to gobble up my food too so he wouldn’t get any ideas about licking my bowl out…grunt!

    BluKat!…I do not resemble a Sea Lion…grunt!…You are making stuff up now….heh!

  62. Siber-H

    Bluekat, Thank you for the photos!

  63. Barb & Maggie
    8:47 pm on August 19th, 2013

    Staff, tell Mr. Staff that he should try some boneless thighs too. They are more tasty than breasts and less expensive. Still the whole chicken is even better.

    Love the pictures from Bluekat. Wonderful.

    Now, off to watch Major Crimes, season finale.

  64. Herd of Hounds
    8:48 pm on August 19th, 2013

    Cooler than usual here today, so mom made white chicken chili. Light color looks funny but she does it spicy.

    8:55 pm on August 19th, 2013

    Oh BlueCat – such lovely pictures. And we do agree with the sea lion/Pug correlation. Only thing is, sea lions don’t have curly tails. But they do snort, grump, and grumble. (and poot)

    We are all set up and loaded for bear – not BearSpiritDog, or the grizzlies that have been attacking everything in sight at Yellowstone, but ready for a super duper show.

    Must remember to take pictures of the booth tomorrow before the show starts. And now – time for bed. Show day starts early and ends late.

  66. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:56 pm on August 19th, 2013

    Alarm!….Me and Beau would not be good alarm clocks…heh!…We both can and will sleep till the cows come home and I’ve herd that is pretty late…snort!

    Barb!…Someone here says I should thank you for posting your chicken potted pie out here…sniff!…There is no way in hell she will do all that work to make it though, I can guarantee it!…snort!

    9:05 pm on August 19th, 2013

    Rose!…Has anyone seen my friend Rose?…snort!…She’s been missing for a few days now and this makes me a worry-pug…sniff!…Maybe she is hiding out in Golinka’s booth so she can have first dibs on all the really good stuff…chuffle!
