    Good morning, everyone! Concise review but we wonder if the author knows that in Yiddish, schmaltz means chicken fat?
    Have a good Thursday.

    I bet he does know that HOH. Nice review.

    I didn’t have to sign on, so maybe our problem is fixed.

    Afternoon y’all. Finally got a bit of shopping today. I feel like a big ol’ pot of chili. Anyway, latest word, subject to change, barring complcations and so forth, is Melanie comes home tomorrow. Given that this is not how our lives generally work, I’m waiting for another delay. Maybe I’ll be wrong though, we’ll see.

    I asked these questions yesterday, but did not get an answer.

    When did Beau cross over? Had he been ill?

    Is there any way to look at posts older than the last week?

    Positive thoughts, Buddy.

    ML, Friend had to have Beau put down either Friday or Monday. He has had several medical problems that were getting worse and made it hard to doctor. I think Friend had to balance his quality of life with everything she was having to doctor.

    Regarding older posts, just keep clicking previous page and it will continue to take you back to posts from previous days. When you find the date you want to look at, click on comments just like on the current day and it should show you the posts for that day. (that is how it used to work…haven’t tried it in a while or since the blog problems this week.)

    Review!…”The Right Side illuminates our present moment in a way that only the best fiction can.”…snort!…We here are still reading The Right Side, not half-way done yet as this is a very difficult book for my friend to read. And she reads every single word, so that doesn’t help the time line…sniff!…This woman, LeAnne breaks my friends heart. Breaks it into so many pieces and then spits them out and stomps on them…weep!sob!

    Baker!…I had to enter my Name and Email to post this…grump!…What the HELLLLL!…growl!

    BooBear!…Thanks for the Beau re-cap…sniffle!…There was no way I was going to be able to go thru that sorrowful history again. No not for anyone…sniffle!…Anyone can go backwards on the blog and you explained it very well…snuff!

    I have to type my name and address into the fields every single time I post.

    Yesterday I threw my back out – something that used to happen all the time when I was working but not so much now that I’m retired. It is spasm-ing no matter what position I’m in. Then I got a wicked sore throat and now my nose is running. To top things off, the weather report says it’s going to get down to 1 degree tonight and I don’t trust it not to freeze, so I am trying to harvest the garden. Groan and ouch, cough and sniffle.

    Dawson!…NO! No!NO! Harvesting while your back is having spasms…gasp!…Don’t do it! You have another person there to do this work. Kick his Ass and get him out there to do all this Harvesting…grump!

    Sorry to hear about your physical woes, Dawson. Weather is so goofy. Today and tomorrow around 93-94* here, way higher than average for end of Sept. And with the weather conditions going on in the rest of the world, it is really scary. Of course, there are still some who say climate change is a hoax.

    I had to add my info on before posting, AGAIN!

    Noswad: We are going to blur you to the Quilt. We have made special arrangements for Wyatt to serve as the pillow for your head and Tenzing to be the pillow under your knees. Tenz is also going to bring snacks.

    I had to re-type name and address before posting.

    The man who lives in this house says it is not going to freeze. So there! I did what I could before my back told me NO MORE! I’ve got lots of tomatoes.

    And now I’m crawling to the quilt, smelling of liniment.

    Still naming and mailing here, too. Night Awesome one, glad you are covered in liniment. Take care of that back, you only have one.
    Still mid 80’s for days and mid 60’s for nights. Birdies are eating like crazy. They know migration is coming.
    We have many in special pawrayers tonight besides everyone on this here blog.
    Sweet dreams from TN.

    Beau!….Our friend whom we loved dearly. November 2006 – September 2017…snuffle!sob!

    We believe that the angels sung about in this song are Beau and Friend. They were a gift to each other.

    For Beau, for Friend. Love youse, Thieves!

    Thieves!…Knowing Beau as I did, he would say his Halo was not broken, but mine was shattered….heh!…Even as he placed bets on his favorite ponies his Halo was intact. But that is how we all see ourselves, isn’t it?…snuffle!

    Rio: we don’t mean anything against Beau or his halo. We believe he was guided to Friend (and you). As far as how we see our own halos—we’ll, we are just glad to have halos. Stolen they might be, tarnished they are, but they are ours until the rightful owner comes forth and maybe not even then. We have grown fond of our halos.
