    Good morning, everyone! It is a shame those treats may be comtaminated but the recall is the responsible thing to do.
    Monday, Monday can it be trusted?

    I’m wondering what a springtime gift is also.

    Haven’t thought about the Mamas and the Papas for a long but I always liked that song.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning all. Warming trend here too, with lots of sunshine. Only upper 50s today but a glorious 70 by Friday.

    We are giving Woof for a springtime gift next week.

    Off to buy a few flowers.

    Good Morning All–I, too, am having a weird Monday–drove into work and arrived with a cramp in one hip, but at least I know I can get here at 8 if I need to.
    Weather is lovely here (although, as you are all undoubtedly tired of hearing, some rain would be nice), I left mt four-legged family resting comfortably, and as soon as I decide which kind of wisdom and knowledge to start with today, I’ll be off and running.
    after an odd start, I decide to trust this Monday.

    Hello everyone!
    We are hoping that our springtime gift is some warmer weather.
    AND a bug-free blog. We couldn’t get here at all in the later part of the day yesterday.
    We have found a very interesting TV show – it is called “America Unearthed” and it is an anthropological look at some aspects of this country’s history. The host is a forensic geologist.
    Much better than watching some of the junk carp on tv these days.

    T and G–Are “junk carp” the ones who get kicked out of the koi pond?

    Oh Diane you are so funny! Junk carp that’s what lives in my pond.

  12. Tupper and Gilly

    Diane – we wish the “junk carp” would get kicked out of the TV pond!

    12:25 pm on April 27th, 2015

    T&G: Same problem here of late…no afternoon or evening access to the blog.
    As for the carp on TV…not likely to happen anytime soon…or ever.

    What channel is that show on?

    Did some outside painting on the front porch. Now it is time for a little reading and a much deserved nap.

    So far we have not had trouble getting on the blog. Paws crossed.

  17. Staff
    1:32 pm on April 27th, 2015

    I wonder if I stay up late will Woof be on my kindle at Midnight?

    I will keep checking.

    It is a delightful Monday here. I am doing a little unpacking and then a little yard work. I call it cross training. Alice thinks it is nice outside also. She has left the building. Fireslippers is to blame. grump.

    CHobbiti: Please share your secret. The only thing getting done here is the contemplation of an afternoon katnap.

    Alice: Don’t go too far.

    Well, I’m putting the house up for sale. Two realtors tomorrow and one on Thursday and we will see what we have. I’ve lived here longer than any other place, and when it was full of people and dogs it was just wonderful. It is much too big for me and I can’t shovel or snow blow anymore and an old house (1812) takes a lot of work. Mac and I and Dan the dog’s replacement, India, will move to a cottage in Martha’s back yard. It means a lot of downsizing, but that is good. Where will I put all my pictures?

    Pouring rain this morning has turned into bright sunshine, weather that DianeC. would envy.

    Off to catch a bus shortly with a good book to read and plenty of snacks.

  22. BearSpiritDog

    Dawson: A Good Book and Snacks…Who could ask for more?
    Have a good trip home.

  23. BearSpiritDog
    3:12 pm on April 27th, 2015

    Zoe: We here like the Less is More Concept too, but are finding it is Easier Said than done. Hope the Downsizing goes Smoothly for you.
    The Cottage sounds lovely and just right for you, Mac and Indie.

    Zoe, The picture thing is a puzzle for me also. I have some wonderful cross stitch christmas samplers that Fireslipper’s Mom made for me. I had a Christmas decorated ‘sitting’ room at my father’s house because we usually went down there just before Christmas. There is no Christmas themed room here. There is a wall about 12″ wide next to a closet door that has a few holiday items. Somehow that doesn’t make the cut. Yeesh.

    Maybe I will have to start putting my holiday things out ONLY AT HOLIDAY TIME. What a concept.

    And I have too many sewing machines!

    Ack!

    A springtime gift could be a Mothers Day present.

    I couldn’t get on the blog either yesterday afternoon and evening.
    The Rockies game was rained out.
    Wose, I watched Pride of the Yankees.

    Zoe, I know moving will be a lot of work, but life will become so much simpler for you in a cottage with Martha nearby.

    3:54 pm on April 27th, 2015

    I never thought I’d hear Staff say that she has too many sewing machines. LOL!

    Zoe: You could have one or several walls filled with pictures–museum style.

  29. Tupper and Gilly
    4:01 pm on April 27th, 2015

    Zoe – we are happy for you AND Martha and of course the dogs too. We know you will miss that grand old house, but think of all the wonderful memories a new family will have there. We love that house too, with the wide plank floors, and the separate West Wing. But it is huge. And you deserve an easier time of it.
    The pictures? That is a good question. So many pictures. You may need revolving walls.

  30. Tupper and Gilly

    We spent the day at our surrogate daughter’s mini-farm. She just got her new pigs. This is Jenn, The Storyteller and Boss Hogg.
    Rio – don’t you dare ask who is which.

  31. Zoe
    4:10 pm on April 27th, 2015

    I already have a living room, dining room, and two bedrooms filled with the art work of Melanie and Rob and Andrea. Add in the downstairs of the West Wing, and boxes of pictures. ….All over. If the house sells for s decent price, Hank, who redid my basement will build another room on the cottage, which it could use.

    Another problem with my place here is that I have to drive a long way to anything.
    I don’t care much for driving anymore.

    Zoe, I loved being in your big old house with the back end of a newf on my lap. I stress big and old. You will be better off in Martha’s cottage and close to family.

    I downsized when I sold my house five years ago. It was hard to do and then felt wonderful when it was done.

    You have all of this art because you have a family full of artists – serves you right!

  34. Mpop's and Loulou's Mom
    4:30 pm on April 27th, 2015

    Wait! Staff has too many sewing machines? What?

  35. Herd of Hounds
    4:38 pm on April 27th, 2015

    Staff, are you feeling alright?

  36. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    4:45 pm on April 27th, 2015

    I almost fainted when I read Staff’s comment about too many sewing machines. Never, ever thought I would hear that from her!

    Zoe, I downsized 3 years ago from a big 2-story farmhouse on 5 acres to a sweet little 3-bedroom ranch with a little fenced yard. It is wonderful! You will always have those wonderful memories but life will be so much simpler and manageable. Plenty of room for you and two dogs. Making choices on the pictures and artwork will be hard, but maybe you can share with some of the other family members.

    SiberMom, I watched too. sniff
    I found out that Lou and Eleanor Gehrig owned a home in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, NY.

    Wose, Thanks for the picture. I like the house. I sobbed at the end of that Lou Gehrig biography I read. It’s a good book.

    5:41 pm on April 27th, 2015

    Apparently I shouldn’t have trusted this Monday. Waiting to hear if I need to make a second 3-hour round trip in another hour or so. Pray for me.

  41. Howlers
    6:40 pm on April 27th, 2015

    Zoe, The idea of downsizing sounds lovely to Mom; however, the actual packing/selling/giving of stuff sounds much more difficult.
    Mom and Kat loved your big old rambling house. It was a place that echoed with laughter. As Tupper and Gilly said, a new family will cherish it and make wonderful new memories. We only wish we could have come up for your party, so we could have seen that wonderful house one more time.

  42. Wose-the small and meek
    7:14 pm on April 27th, 2015

    SiberMom, I was checking out the Gehrig biographies on-line this morning. Do you recall which one you read?

  43. Staff
    7:28 pm on April 27th, 2015

    Leaving any place you have lived in for many years is very hard. I hate to admit it but I miss Dad’s house more than his cranky impolite person. Yes, I do!

    His sweet sentimental person is another matter. I wish that person was here more often.

  44. Staff
    7:30 pm on April 27th, 2015

    Tick season already. Looks like it is going to be a bad one.

  45. Siber's Mom
    7:45 pm on April 27th, 2015

    Wose, The Lou Gehrig book is “Luckiest Man” by Jonathan Eig

  46. Wose-the small and meek

    Thanks, SiberMom. I will have to read that.

    B: a statistical question is one that anticipates a variety of answers. Is today Monday? Not a statistical question. How many books did you read last month? A statistical question.

    Staff, tick season already and is Alice still outside?

  50. Tupper and Gilly
    8:14 pm on April 27th, 2015

    Alice is going to be ticked off…
    tee hee

  51. Tupper and Gilly

    Barb – sorry to take so long to answer your question. That TV show is on a cable channel called H2. Around here, we get it on #242

  52. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    8:48 pm on April 27th, 2015

    Thanks, will try to find it. Night all.

    WE think this is going to be a very buggy summer. Ticks, yes, fireflies already and of course the dreaded stink bugs :(
    The Fridge began acting up Sunday so the kitchen is in disarray while s son and DDD move it out so the new one can be delivered tomorrow (during the dinner hour). Kind of like camping with ice chests all over.

  54. Tupper and Gilly
    9:40 pm on April 27th, 2015

    Kinda quiet tonight. Wonder if some folks are having a hard time blogging-in like we did last night.

  55. Herd of Hounds
    9:55 pm on April 27th, 2015

    We wondered, too. Maybe the slow blog or maybe exhausted.

    Hi all, I am here, just nothing to say. I want to quit my job but then I would just sleep all day. Gary is helping to keep me sanish.

    I love reading about all your lives and just wish I could get up the gumption to follow suit, you are my heros. Love you my framily.

  58. Tupper and Gilly
    11:48 pm on April 27th, 2015

    ML – you always have something to say, if it is just to check in and let us know you are still out there in the wilds of Texas.
    Glad that Gary is good for you. You DO realize that you deserve good things, right? Believe it!

    We gave been hoping that Duane didn’t need to repeat the 3 hour trip. Let us know when you are safe at home.

  59. Tupper and Gilly
    11:49 pm on April 27th, 2015

    ML!…I do want you to know you have a life. And you have a real-life friend there helping you get on with it…heh!…I am indeed in need of a friend who is right here with me. I have lots of cyber friends but to have someone here with me???…Not happening.. This Gary-Guy sounds like he is exactly what you need right now for some support and good fortune for youse…heh!…The Lord is indeed looking over you my friend….Amen!

  61. Alice M. Johnson
    12:39 am on April 28th, 2015

    Nah I am not out. All the ticks were on Fireslippers who spent some quality time in the garden. Ticks don’t like my long fur. Abbie now, she is tick heaven.
    I suppose Staff will want to dose me with Frontline this year. She didn’t do it much last summer but it wasn’t a bad tick year.

    Night all…

  62. Howlers
    6:03 am on April 28th, 2015

    Love you ML. You too, Rio. Cyber friends are cool, but yes, it is wonderful that we have each other in the here and now. Mom says Pop is her bestest friend, but that we Howlers are the next best thing. We would be a big help to her. Oh yes we would.

    And guess what came in the mail yesterday! Our 3 copies of Woof. Love the cover!

  65. Howlers
    7:41 am on April 28th, 2015

    OMD! Woof is on our iPad! We could read it while Mom is at her big office, and she wouldn’t be the wiser.
