Scents And Sensibility

“Whew, that’s over,” says Spence.

“All I can think of is that Chuck Berry line,” Admin says: “‘Campaign shoutin’ like a southern diplomat.'”

Here are 2 more links to SCENTS AND SENSIBILITY, the new C&B, coming July 28:

    Good morning, everyone! Yep, we like the new title, very clever.
    Wednesday already? Have a wild and Wooly one.
    P.S. Love the sparkles on the dog box 🙂

    I don’t really understand the Chuck Berry lyrics.

    Good morning all.

    First link only shows a blank page here 🙁 Second link opens with the info but no artwork or color.

    We had the same problem HOH.

    Glad the elections are over. Next two years should be interesting.

    Good morning! The ‘rents were MIA most of yesterday. They tell us life will now return to normal for our little family.
    We will be pre-ordering S&S for our kindle.

    The apple link did not work for me either.

    Up early as A Catty and I are doing daily walks for health. Too bad we don’t have a dog to accompany us Elliot the Massage Cat does have dog-like qualities and she does not mind going out in the rain, however we will leave him behind to guard the house.

    We voted absentee ballots and without a tv, were not bothered by any election nonsense. I have no idea who won what.

    Another busy day meeting old friends.

    Hi everybody. It’s a wet Wednesday. We do not know what or who won.

  8. Tupper and Gilly
    10:04 am on November 5th, 2014

    We don’t much care who won what. It’s all the same. Until Eleanor Roosevelt comes back and runs, we don’t see much possibility for change.

    Ok – so who is going to post our Friend of the Day? Don’t make us come down there and do it!

  9. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    10:06 am on November 5th, 2014

    Dawson, Does A Catty not have a tv? We were pretty much glued to ours from 5:00 till someone fell asleep on the sofa late last night. There was just one County Board candidate that we really liked, and she lost to a Republican landslide. We didn’t like either person who was running for Gov. so we chose the devil we knew instead of the devil we didn’t. Some call this the Seinfeld election, saying it’s about nothing, but we don’t believe that. Now that the Republicans have control of both the House and the Senate things will change. Not sure if it will be more productive or if there will be more gridlock.

    T & G, We would love to have Eleanor around today. She was an amazing woman way before her time.

    We aren’t trying to steal Zoe’s thunder, but she may still be thunderstruck. Seems that not only does she have a one week old great grandson, but in June, she will have another great grand. Martha’s daughter(Scout’s girl) is adding to the family.

    Safe!…Is it safe to plug the phone back in?…wheeze!…A two year reprieve from political polls and surveys….yeeep!

  14. A. Catty Librarian
    11:39 am on November 5th, 2014

    Nope, no TV at A. Catty’s but there is a computer screen to be glued to. We’re trying to be healthy but it’s difficult when at the end of the walk we stop at Polebridge Bakery for a Huckleberry Bear claw.
    Wish Staff was here.

  15. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:51 am on November 5th, 2014

    Cable!…It just keeps going up!Up!UP! and my friend is threatening to do away with it….yeeeep!…I do not think I could survive without a TV. No, I do not. And how would be watch the baseball games if we do not have cable?…gah!

  16. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    11:56 am on November 5th, 2014

    We would have a hard time saying no to a huckleberry bear claw. That sounds wonderful.

    Made some very simple chicken chili – chopped up chicken breast browned in butter with onion and garlic. Then added a can of navy beans, Ro-tel tomatoes and chicken broth. Simmered for 30 minutes, cooled a bit and then at the last minute added some half and half. Can’t boil it with the cream in it or it will curdle. Served with corn bread.

    Witch!…Did everyone see Staff in her witches costume? Those black Kats always have to get in the act…grunt!

    Herbs, That picture is actually cute.

    Love the one of staff and the two kats. Those new kats seem to have a forever home.

    sob, sob, sob, These are tears of relief. The phone calls have stopped. Those phone calls make me hate each and every last one of the politicians.

  21. Riö -The Evil Pug
    1:01 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Wait!…Doesn’t Staffie and her black Kats qualify as Friend of The Day?…grunt!

  22. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    1:06 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Did Staffy take the kittens to the quilt shop?

    Herbs, that is a really nice picture of the two of youse.
    How is Amalia’s brother?

    Glad little River is home. And another new baby on the way. They will be 2nd cousins, right?

  23. Tupper and Gilly
    1:06 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Oops – sorry Rio.. .those Wrotten Kats, you know. They steal the ipaw whenever they can.

    And YES – Staff and her kitties can be our Friends of any day!

  24. Dawson
    1:11 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Four cat friends of the day is okay by me, as long as we are making the rules, which as any cat knows, are made to be broken.

    I’m off to meet the couple who have been renting my house for the last 10 years.

    BDS, the Herb cats taught our mom our names by association…Basil has a BLACK spot on his nose. Sage’s nosse is simple!

  30. Herd of Hounds
    3:09 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Rio, if the item(s) are for the boutique should we put the PRICE instead of opening bid and QUANTITY AVAILABLE on the minimum bid increment lines?

  31. Riö -The Evil Pug
    3:26 pm on November 5th, 2014

    HoHo!…Good point! And YES, that would be very helpful for Luna…snort!

  32. Riö -The Evil Pug
    3:50 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Question!…I have a question…snort!…Does anyone here like Molasses Cookies?…wheeze!

  33. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    4:02 pm on November 5th, 2014

    I think we had molasses cookies years ago. Are they hard and crunchy like ginger snaps? I bet T & G’s mama has a good recipe.

  34. Tupper and Gilly
    4:11 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Barb – actually, Mama used to love making cookies, but hasn’t done it for years and years. She doesn’t remember making molasses cookies, but just realized a short while ago that she LOVES them. Of course, being a super-sweet type of person, she doesn’t indulge in them but once in a blue moon.

    BSD – HOH has it exactly right – Black nose Basil, Simple nose Sage. They really have two distinct appearances – Basil is a much larger cat, and is far more “type-y” as a Norwegian Forest Cat. Sage’s coat is a little sleeker, and he is of a more athletic build. And as we have mentioned before, we have one smart cat, and one beautiful cat. And Sage is highly intelligent.

  35. B.Stover
    4:12 pm on November 5th, 2014

    I caught up with How To Get Away With Murder but it’s so convoluted that I’m not sure what’s going on.

  36. Basil
    4:12 pm on November 5th, 2014

    That means I am the Beautiful Kat, right?

    Wait a minute…..

  37. Basil
    4:14 pm on November 5th, 2014

    I know when I’ve been insulted. I think.
    They’ll miss me when I’m gone.

  38. Riö -The Evil Pug
    4:32 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Simple!…If I caught all that, I’m thinking Simple-Nose Sage is the one who should be in the box…heh!heh!heh!

  39. Riö -The Evil Pug
    4:33 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Cookies!…My friend makes the most scrumptous molasses cookies and she is wondering if they would be a good Boutique Item….grunt!

  40. Buddy and Leno
    4:37 pm on November 5th, 2014

    I really need to not wait so long between visits. Busy with more of the same, and things plan to get busier. New puppy should be coming at the end of February/beginning of March. No, Leno isn’t retiring yet. He can’t, he needs to help me train the next one, and she’ll take a couple years, probably. Then later, I plan to start veterinary assistant school. Been doing technology for too long and it’s time for a change. Should keep me out of trouble. Going to observe a class next week. Tomorrowwe’re off to a convention for the weekend. ‘s about it. Ni all the kitties! Since we’re posting photos, here’s a retro one of me and Karl when I first got Karl more than 18 years ago…helluva dog, Karl.

  41. Billy's Buddy
    4:43 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Rio: Please tell your friend that those cookies would be a great Boutique item!

  42. Tupper's Mama
    4:57 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Bee – we understand your feelings. We like to watch tv for entertainment, not enslavement. Don’t want to watch shows where we have to have seen the one previous to know what is going on; can’t live our lives scheduled by tv guide.

    And so many shows now are either waaaaayyyy too violent, torrid or low class for us. We like Bones, and just turn away during the “ick” scenes. But how we long for the old days of “Mission: Impossible” and “The Avengers” and even the far fetched “Wild, Wild West”.

    Nowadays, we have “TV’s Stupidest Criminals” and “Naked Real Estate”. Honestly. Turn the tv off, and read a book.

  45. BearSpiritDog
    5:11 pm on November 5th, 2014

    B: We Stopped Watching after the first couple of shows. Even Viola Davis can’t make the show interesting enough to endure the twisty plot with its countless flashbacks. As we said a while back…Damages used flashback scenes with a much better result> IMHO

  46. Buddy and Leno
    5:18 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Ga…TV….so much of it is garbage anymore, putting aside for the moment that a lot of it is hard to follow for me. I mean, Melanie watches all of those shows on Discovery/TLC/whatever. I’m still waiting for The Bridezilla Little Person Hoarder Who Didn’t Know She Was Pregnant With Quintuplets.

  47. Riö -The Evil Pug
    5:21 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Stover!…Also, the leading character is really losing my respect quickly…gasp!…What a volcano of emotion!…gah!

  48. Tupper's Mama
    5:24 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Buddy -… Pregnant with Quintuplets Who Will Be Beauty Pageant Babies, Before They Marry Older Men Who Hunt Ducks and Bigfoot.

    So far I do like the tv show Scorpion. Also, Forever seems good.

  55. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    6:47 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Rio has such a way with the glass half empty method.

    And Rio, we would buy molasses cookies.

    T & G, We here LOVE Bones. Also like Graceland, Parenthood (which is winding down to its last 8 or 9 shows), Blue Bloods, and the 3 NCIS shows. Most of the “reality” shows are not work viewing.

  56. c.hobbit
    7:14 pm on November 5th, 2014

    B&S: no more cats! Doctor suggests I try a different allergy medicine …or I can get shots (gasp).

  57. Masquers
    7:22 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Too bad, Basil. CHobbiti won’t be opening that packing box anytime soon.

    Missed so much while mom made Chicken/vegetable/cheese soup for dinner. The maccaroni and kidney beans were just right in it. In fact, the 12 cups of soup in the big pot disappeared! Help, we are being eaten out of house and home 🙁
    Rio, Like the molasses cookie idea.
    Mom loves Bones and NCIS and NCIS NOLA. She only watches NCIS LA so she can see familiar scenery from where she grew up. And now with the TV app on the ipaw, she can actually watch tv some evenings, but we like it better when she reads to us, Us, US.
    Buddy and Leno, good to hear from y’all. Enjoy the new carreer.

  59. Tupper and Gilly
    8:14 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Mama is just turning onto a cranky old lady. She will watch the NCIS shows if she is in the room, but she would not stop doing anything else just to watch the shows.
    She was interested in seeing “Forever” but never got around to it. And during campaign season, she could barely stand to watch network TV long enough to see “Jeopardy”.
    Thank dog for Roku, Netflix and Acorn TV.

  60. Herd of Hounds
    8:55 pm on November 5th, 2014

    T&G, Forever sounded interesting but never saw it. Perhaps it will show again.

  61. Riö -The Evil Pug
    8:58 pm on November 5th, 2014

    CHobbit!… You are suffering from Kat-Overload…wheeze!….They take my friend’s breath away too. Thank dawg!…heh!

  62. Tupper and Gilly
    9:36 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Rio. We suffer from Kat overload too. We think we should ship ours off to Bakura.
    Or Timbuktu.
    Whaddya think?

  63. Herd of Hounds
    9:48 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Isn’t there some international rule that won’t allow the shipping of cats unless they are proven mousers (just to be sure they will be productive)?

  64. Herd of Hounds
    9:50 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Wait…label the box as “squeaky toys”.

  65. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:50 pm on November 5th, 2014

    We think we have to say Good Night. Night all. Sweet dreams.

  66. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:51 pm on November 5th, 2014

    HoHo!…Well, damn! That is a big loop hole those two herbals can jumped through…crap!

  67. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:53 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Verdict!…Okay, the verdict is in. If all goes well time-wise my friend will be offering up some of those cookies in the Boutique. Move over Pretzels!…heh!heh!

  68. Herd of Hounds
    9:54 pm on November 5th, 2014

    We here think it must be time for nighty night, too, since tomorrow is Darah Thea’s class day and she didn’t like this week’s homework.

  69. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:02 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Easterners!….You all get up too early and then go to bed too early…grunt!…Not enough of us Wild Wild Westerners out here…sniff!

    Tupper!…I think Alice runs an underground railroad that ships Kats who are on the run from one secret place to another…snort!

  71. Staff
    10:12 pm on November 5th, 2014

    I like molasses cookies.

    Yes I took the kittens to the quilt store for our Halloween party. They got to stay 10 minutes and then Mr.Staff took them home.

    I wish I was in Whitefish with the sisters too! SOB.

    T&G Alice and Abbie are smart and beautiful. Although Alice got the brains. Abbie doesn’t know it though.

    I am almost done with all my thingys for the boutique/auction. I only have one thingy to finish. I must write up the words…sigh.

    Mr.Staff had a colonoscopy today and liked it so much he asked if he could have one again next week. (He really did) I think it was the extreme relaxation caused by the anesthesia. they told him “No”

  72. Basil
    10:12 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Rio – what does a ticket cost on Alice’s railroad? And how did she build it underground?

  73. Riö -The Evil Pug

    Basil!….You are the pretty one, right?…grunt!

  74. Herd of Hounds
    10:16 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Stop, stop, y’all are making us ROFL and mom says it is time to settle down for nighty night since we get her up at 5:30, whatever that is.

  75. Masquers

    Answer: a certain Siber whose last name is H.

  76. Basil
    10:31 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Does Alice have a restaurant too? I hear you can get anything you want there.

  77. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:54 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Alice!…Why Yes! She does have a restaurant but you can only get there on her Underground Railroad System which she charges a paw and a tail for…snort!…Alice is part Mogul and Mongrel…guffel!!

  78. Basil
    11:00 pm on November 5th, 2014

    We heard she has a four paw hotel too. Calls it Alice’s Kathouse. It’s about a half a mile from the railroad tracks.

  79. mlaiuppa
    11:14 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Love the title.

    Hate that I have to wait until July.

    I’ve been re-reading a Cat was Involved, Tail of Vengeance and The Iggy Chronicles. I notice that last one says vol. 1. Does that mean there will be more Iggy Chronicles?

  80. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:28 pm on November 5th, 2014

    Mlauipppaaaaa!…We can all hope that Vol. 1 means more Iggy Chronicles to come!….snort!

    Forever!…We watched a wonderful episode of “Forever”…heh!…This show is getting better and better. It was the episode about a wealthy old woman who dies at her art gallery….snort!…We have some catching up to do on this series. I liked the episode because it did not involve the main character dying in any fashion. Just his memories…snuffle!

  81. BearSpiritDog
    12:10 am on November 6th, 2014

    Catching Up On Forever here too. Love that Show!

    Yes, to More Iggy Chronicles…even though, as I pointed out to Chet on Twitter, this title sounds VERY familiar.
