    Good morning, everyone! Dallas needs to have a meet and greet with Chet 🙂 At least Dallas now has a job that makes him happy.

    Have a thrilling Thursday, all. We are about to have a thunderous Thursday 🙁

    Good morning HOH and all.

    Poor Dallas, he was too nice! Hope he likes his new job.

    We are waiting for the rain and wind to start. Temps will reach 50 degrees, but high winds this afternoon.

    Good morning, HOH and all. Dallas is a great looking Member of the Nation.

    Dawson, we use an iPaw to do almost all of our posting on this here blog. We have trouble with missing upper case and spaces sometimes, but other than that, it is a breeze. Mom is stealing it from us when she goes Way Up North, so she can help you. She carries it in her handbag.

    Rio: I prefer a lap-top to the iPad. (I don’t like touch-screen typing.) My lap-top, which is a Toshiba, is on a computer stand on wheels.

    HRH B, mom got a “folio/keypad” which her I Paw snaps into then bluetooths to connect bypassing typing on the screen. There are sever different designs.

    OH, don’t remember if we said how happy mom is that you will be up north. She is looking forward to meeting and sharing a b-day celebration with Ray after the re-start.

    HOH, Mom is spazzing out about the trip. She does not travel well.
    Meashka has been spazzing too. She had accident in her bed and again in my bed (which I never use) last night!!!

    Masquers, Mom could use your air flight expertise.

    OH, mom calls those “intentionals”, we don’t know why. And we hate those dratted suitcases sitting out 🙁

    Morning all.
    It has been exciting here. The new stove was delivered at 7:15 am. We barked.
    The painters came at 7:39. We barked
    The painters moved the Ladd a few times. We barked.
    The Fed Ex truck came. We barked.
    Gramp and Callue went for a walk. We barked.

    Are you sensing a theme here?
    We wonder what Mama has in mind with that duct tape she is holding…

  13. Tupper and Gilly
    10:28 am on February 20th, 2014

    LaddER. The painters moved the laddER

    Hey, Dallas, Looking Good!

    B: Sharon is right…the Keyboard Attachments available for the iPaws, make it sooo much easier to type (especially with my Big, Clumsy Paws).

    Royals: I am Barking for Youse! Hurray for the New Kitchen! Hurray!

    Meashka & Hounds: We know just how you feel. No one likes to see those dreaded suitcases. However, we have found the sitters are always So Much Fun that all that is very soon forgotten.

    Hounds: A Thrilling Thursday? We’ll take it!

  15. Herd of Hounds
    10:52 am on February 20th, 2014

    Staff: Mom can’t figure out how to forward an article she found, but, go on the internet and in “search” type in…Best suitcase packing. Sever good sites come up. Lots of good tips like: pare down-half the pants as shirts, roll things (like the military), Shoes and bulky items first (think of layers of a cake). Good luck.

    Am resubmitting this as am being moderated 🙁

    11:12 am on February 20th, 2014

    Suitcases? There are no suitcases in sight. That part is a long ways away for my Momma.
    Meashka is traumatized about her best boy.

  18. Barb & Maggie
    11:28 am on February 20th, 2014

    Does Meashka know that Dima crossed the Bridge? They say it is best if they know, so they are not quite as stressed over their absence. When Joey passed, Gus got up and came and stood over him at the exact moment of his death and then turned and walked away. He knew what had just happened.

    T & G, What kind of new stove do you have? We noticed in one of the before pictures that you had a solid top electric stove. Did you keep electric or did you switch to gas? Are you getting a new fridge too?

    Wind gusts may reach 50-60 mph this afternoon. As we have said many times, good thing we are not out on the farm!

  19. Masquers
    11:40 am on February 20th, 2014

    Howlers: Yesterday Mom started to get a dreamy faraway look in her eye talking about meeting youse at Seatac. She started thinking…maybe, just maybe… I quickly remindered her of my flight-tracking duties here and the need for a computer.
    (whispering) Kat, your mom will be just fine. tell her to think about all the fun times ahead and meeting me, me, me.
    B&M: Yeep!

  20. Tupper and Gilly
    11:40 am on February 20th, 2014

    The new stove is gas. Mama always wanted a gas stove, and since we converted the heat to gas, now she can have one.
    The refrigerator is going to stay for now, but when the day comes to replace it, it will be with stainless steel.

    The old, dark, shadowy kitchen and dining room are GONE. Wahoo!

    Meashka – we are so sorry for you. We know you miss your partner. But your ‘rents love you dearly, and you can focus on bringing up Kat to be a good Husky pup. Head bumps from everyone here- even the Wrotten Kats.

  21. B. Stover
    11:42 am on February 20th, 2014

    Tupper and Gilly: Good work!

  22. Siber-H
    11:43 am on February 20th, 2014

    That is a good article.

    Wose? Did you send me an SDD? I suspect it is not really from you and I did not click on the “Confirm you know Rose” link.

    Barb, That is our wind that went through here yesterday. Maybe there will still be a few tumbleweeds in it.

  23. Siber-H
    11:47 am on February 20th, 2014

    Meashka, Thinking of you.

    Siber: That wild wind from the west seems to be making its way across the country. It started here on Saturday.
    Okay…WBBL…lots of work to do.

  27. Masquers

    Masquers, my mommy sent your mommy an SDD. Please let her know.

    12:00 pm on February 20th, 2014

    SnowBella: I hope you are getting paid the Big Bucks for all these trips to the Far North. We at least hope you will not be out of Wifi range.

    Meashka: Your Boy is Very Special. He is Missed by all. Hopefully he can visit you in a Dream soon to Comfort you.

  30. Barb & Maggie
    12:00 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Barb loves her gas stove and also her French door refrigerator. They are stainless, which is a nice look, but hard to keep looking clean. Little kid’s finger prints and doggy nose prints really show up.

  31. Wose
    12:05 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Siber-H: please check your SDD when able.

    Mama Meash: I miss your boy very much, too. His heart will always be with you, and ditto to what BSD said. He will show himself to you to comfort you.

  32. Masquers
    12:13 pm on February 20th, 2014

    T.C.: SDD received & responded to.

    1:07 pm on February 20th, 2014

    In addition to the 4″ of snow I shoveled last night, there is another 2″ on the ground and it is still snowing. It might be okay to ease up a little bit on the snow dances. Thanks

    Tapping toe . . .

    Hello All. Dallas, more power to you!

    Been under the quilt. Waiting – have I ever mentioned I don’t like waiting? – for doctors to contact me.

    Now on bulldozer mode. We shall see.

    Back under the quilt.

  35. BearSpiritDog
    1:14 pm on February 20th, 2014

    C.Hobbit: Great News for the Iditarod! (not so much for you)

    Hi, Melanie: Grrr to those Doctors. We all offer to join you on the Bulldozer.

    Computer!…Well crap!…snort!…My friend is not sure what to buy this weekend. She might go to Wally-World and buy something really cheap since the really expensive one didn’t last long….grump!…All I know is I need something pronto to watch the Really Big Race that starts Really soon…sniff!

  37. Masquers
    1:27 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Riö: It seems your late laptop wasn’t that old. Did it have some kind of warranty?…or had it already ran out…which is ALWAYS the way.
    Also you mentioned your friend thought the problem was moving it around too much, but most folks move them from place to place all the time.

  38. Masquers
    1:34 pm on February 20th, 2014

    B: run? ran? Help!
    Heh. Speaking of laptops, computers & smartphones…we here are laughing about the new GoPhone that, with all the added accessories, has to be at least as heavy as an iPaw and we think would make a good weapon.

  39. c.hobbit
    1:47 pm on February 20th, 2014

    This little guy might need more training….

  40. c.hobbit

    Ditto with this puppy…

  41. c.hobbit
    1:54 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Off to shovel snow for the 5th time in 48 hours. Very pretty but I am almost over the thrill. At least I will have on hand 6 potential shovelers next week.

  42. c.hobbit
    1:59 pm on February 20th, 2014

  43. dawson
    1:59 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Dallas is very handsome. It is good that he found a job more suitable to his talents.

    O’Howlers: Thanks! I will need help with the ipaw, especially with posting photos and I see I can download ebooks too!

    T&G: Whole lot of barking going on! I take that as a sign that work is happening and soon you will have your kitchen back with a new gas stove! I love cooking with gas and the bonus is that if the electricity goes out you can still cook.

    CHobbit: I stopped doing the snow dances a few days ago, honest!
    I hope they find out what keeps causing the blood in Sadie’s urine.

    I am doing laundry and watching the US versus Canada women’s hockey game. Oh no! The US just scored again!
    I get a nervous feeling the day before I travel and with the Olympics and construction going on here I am so distracted that I’m sure to forget to pack something. Not my pants though. I packed them this morning.

    Wose: I received a SDD from you also…

    Rebecca will add Dima’s name to the appropriate checkpoints and fix any little errors (like adding Wose’s name on the White Mountain checkpoint) as soon as she gets back from the North. If you know of any errors on the checkpoints list you can SDD me.

    2:14 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Maskers!…As far as I can tell the warranty was only for one year…sniff!….The dead lap-top would be 2 years old come April…grump!

  53. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:28 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Cabin!…Hey! Wait a cotton pickin’ minute…snort!…Rebecca is giving away my little Cabin in the Woods? She did not ask me about this, no she did not…grump!

  54. c.hobbit

    Mom just got home and missed mucho! Had a comfort lunch with adopted son and his partner. Did grilled ham and cheese sandwiches and cream of “mater soup, then a rousing game of scrabble. As usual, mom got smeared 🙂

  63. Masquers
    3:12 pm on February 20th, 2014

    CHobbit: That’s a lot of snow! That’s what comes of too many doing the snow dance. It’s a shame Riö & Beau couldn’t come up to help with the shoveling…although no doubt they would disagree.
    Kool photos of Dallas as a pup.
    Dawson: Mom is in a tizzy and she’s just going to the airport!
    btw: please check your SDD when able.
    Siber: Same as B&M…it looked legit to us too.
    Thanks, B: That’s what I told Mom, but did she listen? No.

  66. dawson
    3:59 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Rio: The US had a 2 to 0 lead in the 3rd with only 3 1/2 minutes to go when Canada scored! Then they scored again with less than a minute to go! Overtime! Canada scored again! WhooooHooo! Canada got the gold in women’s curling too!

    4:05 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Macy’s Mom: Just noon up North in Alaska. Haven’t heard much. Are you seeing the sights? Shoveling snow? Having hot cocoa wrapped in a blanket? Shivering? Please check in soon, inquiring minds want to know.

  68. Masquers
    4:06 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Siber and B&M: We would advise not to click on that link, but instead suggest going direct to the site to see what shows up there.
    But Riö, youse could have seen the all the Iditarod festivities first hand and your little cabin in the woods awaits.
    Moi?, I am planning a stowaway attempt on one of the Plunderers flights…surely I’m small enough to fit in one of their over-sized carry-ons….and, with that in mind, I will be contacting Alice to bring extra salmon bonbons for the trip.

  69. Tupper and Gilly
    4:29 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Painters are done! We are in the process of putting things back together, but there is an auction tomorrow night with a beautiful Hitchcock dining room set that Mama is drooling over. So, the dining room might just have to wait a day or two…

    Its ok – Mama is just sitting in the middle of the light, bright, warm, gorgeous room smiling. Just smiling. What’s up with that?

    Rio – has your friend ever considered going to a big box office store for help with selecting the right kind of computer?

    Are we supposed to stop doing our snowdance now? Are you sure there is enough snow for the team to run on comfortably?

  70. Siber-H
    4:30 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Rio and Beau do not have a future in construction work.

    The email is legit. Wose told me so.

  73. Barb & Maggie
    5:00 pm on February 20th, 2014

    BSD, We thought she meant big box like Office Depot, Office Max or Best Buy. We got a really good deal on all-in-one hp Pavilion last fall at Office Depot.

  74. Barb & Maggie

    Dawson, care to double down for tomorrow’s game at noon? Huh????

  80. Riö's Friend
    6:28 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Rio’s friend here. I just heard from Rebecca, seems she did not make it to Barrow today as planned. Instead at around 4:30am she went to Urgent Care where AJ met up with her. They ran some tests and are currently treating her for dangerously low potassium levels compounded by exhaustion. The Doctor told her no travel this week because he fears she will have seizures. They will test her again next week to make sure they are on the right track with this theory and that it’s not something else.

    She says no one should worry (uh-huh) and right now her and AJ are on their way home from Anchorage. I am hoping she will do as the doctors say and get some much needed rest. Low potassium is not something to take lightly.

    I would have let Rio type this up but he is in a corner right now very worrit about his friend even though she definitely said not to worry she will be back on the blog tomorrow.

  81. Tupper and Gilly
    6:28 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Just getting home from the last official “Mama can’t cook in a kitchen with wet paint and without a stove” dinner out. Tomorrow she will have everything in place to cook – so, where will she be at dinnertime? At an auction.

    The woman is just unbelievable.

  82. Tupper and Gilly
    6:34 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Sheesh – talk about unbelievable women!

    Snowbella – SIT! STAY! HEAL!
    Rio – we know you are rocking in a corner with worry – but low potassium is very treatable. It is a VERY good thing they caught it before there were complications. We will have all paws crossed that she will listen to the doctor and learn to take life just a tad slower. And that she will be feeling tip top in no time.
    And the low potassium could be related to the dehydration issues that she had a little while ago.

  83. Kat
    6:38 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Oh Dog! Bella! Me worry? You’re darn tootin’

  84. Barb & Maggie
    6:40 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Good thing she took heed and didn’t get on a plane!

    T & G has some good advice up above. Take care of yourself and slow down just a bit.

    Rio, in my 40 years in the computer field, I have lost count of how many hard drives failed. I didn’t carry my work computer around but it kept happening anyway. My home computers were carried many places, mostly when they were turned off, but hard drives can be tricky. Two years ago, when yet another hard drive failed, I went with the Mac Air laptop. It has no spinning hard drive, instead it is solid state.

  86. Wose
    6:46 pm on February 20th, 2014

    I am very worrit about the Pixie.

  87. dawson
    6:47 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Me too! I am worrit! Snowbella, we want you healthy and seizureless.

    Kat: Sure kid, I’ll double down. Unfortunately I will be on a greyhound bus while the game is on. When I get off the bus I hope to be welcoming a grand nephew to the world so I will be a bit busy. Well, the grand nephew may decide not to make an appearance.

    T&G: Please check your SDD when able.

    Youse guys, I recently joined Linked-in. It is a networking site that mainly benefits people like me, who are unemployed. Since I used my blog e-mail, I think it somehow gathered all your names. If you do receive an accept message, you don’t have to accept. Just know that it is legit from me.

    Wose, we thought it was legit, but didn’t sign on for it since Barb is retired. It seems more like a business link so she didn’t think she could benefit you in any way. However, we were impressed with your business profile, Howlers’s mom’s too. (When we clicked on your profile, it also showed Howler’s mom’s profile, so it is not that we were stalking you).

She now gets up on a higher perch, and more importantly, she eats and drinks, and eats, and even eats her oyster shells. She started laying an egg almost every day.

    Mother!…Oh mother, she twisted her knee today so my friend was doing supper, dishes, and fussing around getting the standby old-lady walker out and dusted off…sniff!…Now Beau and I are in constant danger of getting pummelled to death every time mother gets up and moves around….grunt!…Which by the way she is not supposed to do. She is supposed to stay put in the chair with her damned leg up…gruffle!

    Oh, poor Mom. A walker. Drat it all.
    Fern is still a house chicken, but only until the ‘rents return from Way Up North, and the snow goes away. Then there will be a brand spankin’ new wee “rehab” coop for Fern out in the yard, close to her sisters. We think that once she is outdoors, scratching in the dirt, she will get to where she is able to move about, though maybe not quite normal.

  108. O'Howlers
    9:02 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Cards!….That Fern is really playing her cards right…snort!…I bet she could even beat Dawson. Here she is the ONLY one of the whole flock who has gotten to stay in the warm house all winter while all her peeps are out in the cold harsh winter weather…heh!heh!…Heck, it will be Spring before she even sets foot on a blade of grass….chorkel!…What a Chicken!

  116. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:43 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Mollys-Maw!…Someone here has been contemplating the Mac idea big time believe you me…sniff!…The techies at the computer-fix-it-up shop showed her a real disk drive and how fragile they are…grump!…It’s a wonder the whole world of pcs and laptops have not crashed…sniff!

  117. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:56 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Vocabulary!….disk drive = hard drive…sniff!…What the hell am I talking about?…grunt!

    Olympics!…I cannot and will not believe the Canadians yet again beat us in Hockey…grump!…What a brutal nightmare. I wonder if all those Canadian Hockey athletes will get drunk again?…heh!heh!…Remember that? I bet SiberH and Dawson do.

  118. Barb & Maggie
    9:57 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Boobear, Congrats to Linda. How exciting! Do you know when the new one is due?

    Rebecca in Urgent Care at 4:30 am? Splort! thunk! [I am sick hearing the news and feel faint] Big week coming up. Rest, take medicine and get well soon.

  120. dawson
    10:13 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Lovely picture of a beautiful woman and her handsome sons!

    Rio: Get a Mac! Now why would SiberH get drunk because the Canadian women won gold? Those women were on home ice when they got drunk and smoked cigars. I don’t think they’d get away with that in Russia, especially since Russia is out of hockey medal contention. We are watching the game again! WhooHooo! We are into overtime.

    BooBear: Congratulations on your exciting news!

  121. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:21 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Dawson!…I thought it was hilarious at the time and actually I still think it is hilarious…snort!…I just wish to hell we could beat you guys some day…grump!…Did I miss the Luge? I have yet to see a Luge event…wheeze!

    10:30 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Thank you, Royals, for Posting that Photo. Purple is definitely our Melanie’s Color.

    Rio: Sorry to hear about Your Friend’s Mother. It must be very painful.
    Remember all the Computer Problems We Here used to have? We went through one after another in nothing flat. Now, with this newest version, there is space for tons of photos and that has made all the difference. However…it is not a laptop.
    Can’t wait to hear what kind of new computer youse are getting.

  124. dawson
    10:32 pm on February 20th, 2014

    I must have missed ML’s post…

    Rio: They had the one where they go down on their backs feet first, then the one where they are on their stomachs head first, then the 2 man bobsled, and the one man bobsled. Is one of those the luge? I am not a fan of ice chutes (unless the Jamaicans are racing).

  125. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:38 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Shoots!…I am a HUGE fan of the ice shoots and I will have to watch it all ON DEMAND I guess…sniff!…What the hell! I thought the Luge was one of the top viewer sports…grunt!

    ML!…What? Did she ever get out of bed? I do not remember a post about her being out and about in Alaska, but then I have a bo-dunk computer right now..sniff!

  126. Masquers
    10:45 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Dawson: Everyone loves the Jamaicans!
    No one here saw a post from ML either…only that one this morning. We were thinking CHobbit got a phone call from her.

  127. Barb & Maggie
    10:46 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Boobear, Tell Linda to try to talk them into waiting to find out the sex of the baby. Almost no one ever does that these days. We had some in our family that waited, and it was just Sooo exciting. One of life’s only big surprises. We highly recommend it!

    Night all.

  128. Barb & Maggie
    10:48 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Youse guys are right. We went back to see if we missed a post from Mary Lou and could not find one.

  129. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:52 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Maskers!…What a smart-alect-kat you are sometimes…snort!…I bet CHobbit did get a special Go-Phone call or text from ML…sniff!…See, this is what happens when Plunderers “Get Together”. They FORGET about all of us woe-begotten ones sitting at home. They DO NOT post about what is going on, oh no, that is way toooo much bother for them…sniff!..I can see it all now. Everyone will be in Alaska and I will be sitting here all alone wandering what the hell is going on up there – just like you Maskers…gruffle!

  130. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:58 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Relatives!…Wait, ML is not even out and about with the Plunderers yet, she is hanging with Relatives…sniff!…EVEN WORSE!…wheeze!…We will hardly hear from her at all, mark my words…grump! …Photos? Not one I bet.

  131. dawson
    10:58 pm on February 20th, 2014

    We will be having waaay too much fun giving tummies and eating seafood and possibly drinking beers. We will be thinking of you and wishing you were here but we will not post!

    That’s what it is for you know…keeping in touch with us!

  134. dawson
    11:15 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Masquers: Okay, okay, I will try to post on that complicated machine. I do hope O’Howlers will teach me how to take a picture and post it. I will try. I did manage to download a free book today, although I did not find Michener’s “Alaska”, which is what I want to read.

    11:27 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Skaters!…The 15 year old Russian just finished here, but she fell! Unbelievable. She has been perfect so far. I can see our 15 year old and their 15 year old becoming ice skating rivals big-time in the upcoming Olympics…yeeep!… Such talent as such an early human age…wheeze!

  138. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:39 pm on February 20th, 2014

    11:45 pm on February 20th, 2014

    Agent Maskers!…Can you track Dawson’s bus?…wheeze!…Where is she going again? I am thinking Montana, but that is where the Massage-Kat lives…sniff!…Not sure.

    12:01 am on February 21st, 2014

    Everyone: ML has posted on Facebook.

    Dawson: what kind of carrier do you have for your iPad? I hope it works in Alaska. If not, everyone can use my laptop to make their posts.

    It looks like it finally stopped snowing and the skies are clear. No more snow is scheduled. With the expected heat wave, some of the snow will melt but hopefully the trails have been much improved.

    I am here. Been out and about seeing beeyoutiful mountains, rivers, trees, reindeer, bison, elk, musk oxen, and really big birds. Mr. Pug I will attempt to get the pictures on my iPaw tonight, no promises.

    Anyone following me on FB, don’t believe everything you read. Sometimes I just pick a location that sounds like fun. My cousin took me out on the 4-wheeler this afternoon. Wheeeeeeeeee. That was breezy.

  145. ML
    3:21 am on February 21st, 2014

    ML: That looks like fun and the scenery is beautiful.

    Masquers: Updating my itinerary. I take the greyhound to Fort St. John, where I get off to see if there is a new baby and stay overnight. Then on Saturday I catch a plane to Vancouver where my son will pick me up and take me across the border to the US. That’s where I stay for a few days.

    Melanie: I hope being a bulldozer yesterday did some good and didn’t wipe you out for today.

    BooBear: Thinking of you and yours as I head out on my great adventure.

    I wasn’t able to post yesterday after 2:00. this is the post that stuck in the blog unposted. sniff. Off to catch up…BBL

    Huh I just learned something.

    If I have prescription drugs, and I do, they should be in the original containers, not in the weekly/daily dispensing packs.

    Jeeze louise I take 20 pills a day. What a pain to open and dispense those medications from the bottles not from the daily dispenser. Sheesh. They can’t guarantee that I won’t break some unnamed state rules if I have them outside the bottles. Yikes. Now that is going to be an interesting couple of bags.

    And you are only allowed ONE quart sized plastic baggie of liquid and gel toiletries. Sheesh.


    And I haven’t posted yet today but I am posting too fast. I guess I will steal Alice’s avatar…

    This sucks.
