Second Mention of the Teitelbaum Divorce in the Chet and Bernie Series

“Even if the letter’s kosher,” Bernie said, “there’s no way DeLeath did it alone.”

Kosher? I knew all about kosher, a kind of chicken, in fact the best chicken I’d ever tasted, at the celebration dinner after the final stake-out in the Teitelbaum divorce. The Teitelbaum divorce: a nightmare. Mrs. Teitelbaum riding a bulldozer straight through the wall of the garage where Mr. Teitelbaum kept his antique car collection – hard to forget a sight like that. My mind stayed with the memory a little too long, and if Bernie mentioned how chickens were coming into the case I missed it, looking up only in time to see him handing over the plastic bag with the bandanna.

    Am I the first?

    Macy, with an 85 mph speed limit, that means they’re driving over 90 for sure. Scary!

    9:44 am on December 10th, 2012

    I am the first.

    Macy, We didn’t get any moisture from that storm here, but parts of the state did. It sure did get colder, which is an improvement.

    Macy? Do you know yet what Josh Hamilton is going to do? I hope he stays with the Rangers.

    Hello Belle

    Good Morning All

    ‘Morning, Little Sam and Siber-H and all.

    Bella, the calendar arrived and it’s beautiful. You and AJ and puppies, oh my!!!

    Happy two weeks till Christmas Eve, Everybody and Happy Hanukkah to Wookie and family.

    I wonder why we’re getting posts on the Teitelbaum divorce and if that is somehow going to be in another e-story.

    Good morning all.

  7. Siber-H
    10:08 am on December 10th, 2012

    Stover, I wondered the same thing. There must be a reason for the Teitelbaum divorce posts.

  8. OleyHowlers
    10:18 am on December 10th, 2012

    Good morning, all. Wondering about the Teitelbaum Divorce posts here too.

  9. SnowBella
    10:30 am on December 10th, 2012

    Bluecat: I am glad you like it.

    It snowed all through the night so AJ got up early to clear the driveway. He takes it personally each time it snows because our driveway is so long.

    Wishing all youse a wonderful day.

  10. Rose
    10:53 am on December 10th, 2012

    Greetings All!

    Siber-H: I am waiting for snow too. Something tells me I will have my fill in February.

    Rio! You and your friend did a marvelous job on your Christmas tree! Even the presents are wrapped beautifully!

    Rebecca: I received my Snowhook package on Friday. I love everything in it! The color calendar is very cool, and now the Prof can’t wait to meet Wyatt! BTW: My round head measurement is 7 3/8 according to the SK sizing instructions.

    Maybe you should be Ramblin’ SnowBella instead of me being Ramblin’ Rose. Be safe in your travels and feel better!

  11. Siber-H
    10:58 am on December 10th, 2012

    Rebecca? Does AJ have a blade in the front of the truck to plow snow?

  12. Tupper and Gilly
    11:11 am on December 10th, 2012

    Hi everyone. Mama got a kick out of the facebookie thing over on the right. We get all the antlers we want to chew – at least we get the parts they cut off when they make something with the antler. Hey – they haven’ty done that in a while. We may have to get after them about that – as OFA mentions – it IS that time of year.

  13. SnowBella
    11:18 am on December 10th, 2012

    Wose: Wyatt is Tenzing’s son and he, like his pop, is a love.

    SiberH: we have a plow on the four-wheeler. Mick, the person not the puppy, beefed up the blow to withstand all the plowing AJ does.

  14. Siber-H
    11:29 am on December 10th, 2012

    Rebecca, Good. AJ doesn’t have to use Dawson’s method of removing snow. I believe what you Alaskans call a four-wheeler is what we call an ATV here in the lower 48.

  15. SnowBella
    11:35 am on December 10th, 2012

    SiberH: You are correct, it is the same thing. In the past when the plow has broken, AJ has had to get creative.

  16. Barb & Maggie
    11:37 am on December 10th, 2012

    Snow, I wish we would get some here. They said we have gone 280 days w/o snow which ties a 1994 record.

    Good morning, all!

  17. OleyHowlers
    11:47 am on December 10th, 2012

    Siber, we in the east call them 4-wheelers as well. We have a lot of wreckless kids driving those 4-wheelers, and each year there are horrific accidents. We know AJ would not risk his machine like these kids do.
    We are prisoners in our house dtoday, so we can’t tell if there have been any deliveries from Snowhook. 🙁

  18. Macy the min-pin
    11:51 am on December 10th, 2012

    We have gone 0 days without snow! I didn’t stick to the ground but it was still on the roofs? when we got up. Annie wanted to go play on the roof, but was sad to hear that she would have to wait for ground snow.

    Siber-H, we were all sad to see Michael Young go, as he has never been with any other team but the Rangers. Josh Hamilton’s star is falling around here and consensus is that it is time for him to move on. Time will tell.

    Royals, what do antlers taste like? Do they last longer than bones? Mom wants something for us to chew on that lasts awhile.

    Sammie, you are correct, 85 mph translates to 95-100. It is like the autobahn. There are not that many cars on it yet, parts have only been open for a couple of months. Interstate 35, which the toll road parallels is torn up much of the way between Fort Worth and Austin, so the toll road should be getting more traffic soon.

  19. OleyHowlers
    11:59 am on December 10th, 2012

    (Whispering) Macy, we just used Mom’s Amazon app to order moose antlers. We’ll let you know how they are. Mums the word.

  20. Tupper and Gilly
    12:09 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Macy – antlers are GREAT! Have you ever managed to be around when a blacksmith was trimming horse hooves? Antlers are kinda like that only harder, depending on how dried out they are. We really like the freshest ones, but those are harder to come by. And since antlers are really only compacted hair, they don’t splinter like some bones.

    And we are still without snow here, which is JUST FINE with us! How about snow on Christmas eve, and then have it gone by January 2?

  21. Tupper and Gilly
    12:10 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Hey – have we missed something? Has there been a revelation about the title of the new book, as OFA was hinting?

  22. Siber-H
    12:10 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Macy, The Rangers fans that live where you do get a whole lot more Rangers’ news than I do, so I will respect their opinions about Josh Hamilton. Me too, I am sad to see Michael Young go, and I didn’t know about his leaving.

    Ah, What I could do with a Porshe 911 on that new road in Texas.

  23. Barb & Maggie
    12:20 pm on December 10th, 2012

    On Yahoo trending news was a headline: “Kim Kardashian’s cat dies”. Had to look at it. Seems Kim’s current boy friend gave her the kitten 2 months ago, but after a few days she realized she was allergic. She gave the cute little white Persian to her “personal assistant”. Now the kitty gets sick and has some sort of fatal virus, so they have it euthanized. Kim tweeted that she was heartbroken and devastated, but at least the kitty was loved during its short life. Gag and Gah! And this is BIG news? Pleeaaasee!

  30. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    2:12 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Greetings from here in Chevy Chase. Busy few days. On Friday, I got to visit grandpa again. He is doing better, but it will still probably take quite a bit more time before he has completed the rehab program in order to be able to come back home to live.

    And then on Saturday, we had our annual Christmas party. A slightly smaller group than in past years, but a great time was had by all. The theme this year was Christmas and Chanukah, and the party fell on the first night of Chanukah. Dad even gave an explanation about Chanukah and what it symbolizes when we sat down for appetizers.

    The full menu is below (mom outdid herself again, IMHO):

    Holiday Party 2012 Menu:

    Maple Carmelized Spicy Cashews

    Chopped Chicken Livers
    Horseradish & Dill Cured Salmon

    Leek and Ginger Matzo Balls in
    Lemongrass Consomme

    Traditional Brisket
    ‘Modern’ Brisket

    Classic Latkes

    Rose Lamb Cole Slaw
    Golden & Ruby Beet and Tangerine Salad with Cranberry Dressing

    “Hostess Cupcake 2.0”
    Marscarpone Lemon Curd 4 Layer Cake

    Oak Ridge Reserve Old Vine Zinfandel 2007

    A bit of explanation on a couple of the items. Traditional brisket is made in a red wine sauce with onions. Modern brisket is made with a cocoa-coffee mole sauce. Both were yum. And the “Hostess Cupcake 2.0” was a rich chocolate cupcake with a white chocolate mousse filling and bittersweet dark chocolate ganache on top, and with curlecue white icing on top just like they do at the soon to be departed Hostess bakeies.

    Dear Computer Doctor – yes, we know the keyboard is full of drool. Sorry. We couldn’t help it. You see, a friend of ours posted a holiday feast menu, and well, there you have it.

    This is the table setting for the party; the table runner down the middle (hard to see clearly in the photo) was quilted by mom.

    Wow!…Most of that food I’ve never tasted before…wheeze!

  34. B.Stover

    Wookie: That certainly sounds delish! How was the Zinfandel?

    And since others have posted too, this is a picture of our Christmas tree. (A angel on top is a Madame Alexander doll that my mom’s best friend gave her several years ago.)

    2:23 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Wookie! Do you have any leftovers for us?
    Please, Please say YES.

    I second what T & G just said. Could I see the recipe for the beet salad, please?

    I am here at the computer by myself. The countertop guys installed the top this morning, and now Eric is here hooking up the sink and hanging the last 3 cabinet doors. Maggie is back in the bath tub, behind the curtain. She will be there till Eric leaves.

    Wookie, Thanks for the menu and photos. I know your guest appreciated and enjoyed the Christmas dinner.

    Mom has to go for her annual eye exam now. She may not be good for much when she returns because she won’t be able to see. I am glad she can fix my dinner without needing good vision. She assures me that she can.

    O’Howlers, I was going to post that link also. Heh. It is sure cute.

    Wookie, your tree is beautiful, and your dinner menu tres bien!

  45. Barb & Maggie
    2:54 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Maggie would face down a charging bull or a snarling raccoon (or a herd of sneering rats), but Eric with his power drill is too much for her!

    Josh and Jess decorated their 10 foot Christmas tree, which is 3 times bigger than ours, and then it fell over during the night. Several ornaments were broken and some of the lights didn’t work. Jessica cried and Josh swore.

  46. Barb & Maggie

    Rose, You speak French AND Spanish?

    That dinner menu made us drool too. We are dying to try both briskets.

    3:14 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Rio: I’ve responded. Stop sobbing.

    Wookie: Beautiful table setting and tree. Too bad you couldn’t try the wine.

    Maggie: It’s okay. Brandy used to run from the vaccum cleaner (can’t remember how to spell it). Some noises are just too dreadful.

  50. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:19 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Wookie!…If I remember correctly, and I usually do, Wookie is more of a Martini connoisseur….chuffle!

  51. B.Stover
    3:25 pm on December 10th, 2012

    That’s right–Wookie does like martinis. I’m going to have a lovely glass of Chateau Vermont Bordeaux later.

  52. Rose
    3:36 pm on December 10th, 2012

    B&M: I do speak Spanish, and know 1 or 2 phrases in French. When I want to be impressive with French, I use the Google transaltor. ;^)

  53. Rose
    3:36 pm on December 10th, 2012

    I myself love a nice Cosmopolitan.

  54. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:40 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Beer!…I like cold beer and hot wings…snort!snort!…Now you’ve all done it! I’m hungry again…grunt!

  55. Melanie
    3:40 pm on December 10th, 2012

    It takes forever to have a Honda dealer to make two keys. We only fit through half of our errand list.

    Rio and B.Stover, as soon as I can move off the heating pad, I’ll check the mail. The iPaw is connected ti YSAS’s email account.

    Trying not to fall asleep,but losing the battle. Wookie? That is an amazing dinner!

    Macy, no snow here.

  56. B.Stover
    3:45 pm on December 10th, 2012

    I haven’t had a Cosmopolitan in a long time.

  57. Rose
    3:57 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Rio! I enjoy a cold beer every now and then myself.

  58. Rose
    4:21 pm on December 10th, 2012

    B: We are having our dept. holiday luncheon tomorrow. I may just have a Cosmopolitan tomorrow. I also like mojitos. That will fufill my two drink limit.

  59. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:36 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Mojitos!…I’ve heard of those only because I watch Burn Notice and one of the characters always drinks them…heh!heh!…What the heck is in one of those things? Is there any beer in them?…snort!

  60. B.Stover
    4:54 pm on December 10th, 2012

    I’ve never heard of mojitos. How is it pronounced.

  61. Barb & Maggie
    5:04 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Bee, I would think it is Mo-heat-o.

  62. Tupper and Gilly
    5:15 pm on December 10th, 2012

    We are twirling and spinning and twirling some more. Mama ordered a special made Christmas gift for Gramp and it is here and even more beautiful than we had ever hoped.

    Barb – good phonetic spelling of mojitos.

    And we do believe our eyebrows have lifted – Professor Bee cant remember how to spell “vacuum”? We can only do it because of a memnomic – we say “I see you, you mud”. Ok, not great grammar, but we bet you will remember it the next time. tee hee

  63. OleyHowlers
    5:30 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Twirling here! It feels like Christmas. We received a package from Snowhook: our Iditarod DVD, our Snowhook neck gaiter, sans fleece liner, our magnets, and our calendar. Wow! Is it time for the Iditarod yet? Sasha, who loves attention, especially loved that this package was addressed to her attention. heh heh

    Rio, is it Sam who drinks mojitos? We remember them talking about them on Burn Notice too.

    Wose, Mom’s department picnic is tomorrow too. She is not planning any drinks because her drive is way too long. By the way, is your address on dishlickers?

  64. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:36 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Mo-heat-toes!…snort!…Yes, Sam on Burn Notice, drinks many a mojito…heh!

  65. B.Stover
    5:40 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Thank you for the pronounciation Barb.

    I don’t get the “I” from “va” part T&G.

    5:46 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Last week we posted a picture of our little tree with the beautiful quilling cards on it. Here is our b-i-g tree.

  67. Terry Ballard
    5:58 pm on December 10th, 2012

    A mojito is a mint julep with white rum instead of bourbon. Either drink is fine with me.

  68. Barb & Maggie
    6:12 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Beautiful tree Oleys! Is your’s a real tree?

    I am out – out of the closet, umm, I mean bathtub. Eric the Evil is gone, gone, gone. Kitchen is done. Barb is so glad, she may have a mojito!

  69. Melanie
    6:13 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Hi Terry, I guess that is why YSAS can drink Mojitos.

    The trees (though some are sideways) look great. We got our tree today. Perhaps tomorrow it will get put up. Not sure when we’re going to decorated it. We ended up not going out sawing one down. Too tired.

    Riö, seen and answered.

    Time to rest again.

  70. Tupper and Gilly
    6:27 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Bee – no, there is no “I” in vacuum. But it is an easier way to remember one c and two u’s.
    we use lots of memnonics since we can’t spell worth beans. As you may have noticed.

  71. B.Stover
    6:28 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Thank you Melanie. I sent the link to my friend.

    Thank you Terry.

  72. B.Stover
    6:30 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Sorry but I have to say this: “Yours” is a possessive pronoun like “his” and doesn’t require an apostrophe.

  73. OleyHowlers
    6:38 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Was our tree sideways? No, it is not a live tree. Mom and Pop broke down 2 years ago and bought this fake one. They thought it would make life simpler, and it has. But they still struggle getting this tree down from the attic, and then back up there after the hollidays.

    For all of our Plunderer friends who are grieving this year, we saw this on fb and we like the quote. Mom says this her experience. Sorry it is a picture.

  74. Melanie
    7:01 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Thanks OH.

    Dawson, sent some stuff your way.

    Still waiting to hear about B.Stover and Wookie.

  75. Melanie
    7:05 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Wöökie, I believe you won Dan’s book. Still trying to stay awake.

    7:05 pm on December 10th, 2012

    I enjoy seeing the trees of the Plunderers. They are all very nice. I haven’t had a tree for 20 years. When the boys were young in Montana we would go out in the woods with our saw and cut a tree. It was always a Charlie Brown tree with mostly homemade decorations, many of them edible.

    Wookie: Would love to have a taste of that delish sounding supper. There is only one thing I have had and that is the latkes. Oh dog, they are yummy.

    Stover! Vacuum. Heh!

  77. Wose
    7:08 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Oleys: I love the quote. This is definitely a spot on quote about grieving.
    Your tree looks great!

    I think my address is on Dishlickers.

    Greetings plunderers from the middle of the mitten. Big to-do’s going on at the capital building today. Hullabaloo regarding right to work, expecting “thousands” to descent on the capital building tomorrow. Michigan State Police (MSP) at every entrance to the cap bldg, all streets surrounding the cap blocked off, downtown hotels are booked at 100% capacity. Mom walked to the post office and stopped to get her morning kawfee around 10A and saw a Greyhound bus full of MSP. You dont’ see that every day.

    Mom says there is only one entrance and exit that will be open for parking and access into her busy place, which happens to be the first bldg directly west of the capital. Good luck with that, I say. I’m going to be snuggled down on the couch taking a nap.

    Rose: quilt mailed today
    SiberH: ditto

    Dear Royals,
    Please tell your Mom and Pop that Dawson and I received the precious package safely. We read Mom your letter, well, I read it cause Dawson got all sniffy and her throat didn’t work so well. Mom is tickled that all this came from a person we ‘met’ on the blog.
    Her special dream catcher is hanging on the window right next to the chair where she sits all day so we think she is extra safe and protected.
    Thank you thank you thank you.
    Alice and Abbie are very happy with their new treats also. Alice is laying on the catnip pkg right now.

    B. Stover, I hadn’t heard from Bella. I bet she’s been swamped with everything. I’ll send it tomorrow. I’ll also send Wookies.

    I must sleep now. TTFN

    This time of year I look forward to a Bailey’s on the rocks as a holiday drink. Spicey hot apple cider works for me too. Not keen on egg nog.

  92. B.Stover
    8:37 pm on December 10th, 2012

    I saw Miracle on 34th Street last night. It was made in 1947.

    Baileys!…My friend bought her brother a bottle of baileys…sniff!…Its all wrapped and in his basket along with some Irish whiskey. He is hard to buy for so she decided a basket of booze, cheese, crackers, summer sausage and chocolate would do the trick…heh!heh!

  94. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:52 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Stover!…Thats the one we are watching right now. It is the colorized version. Me and my friend love this movie so much…wheeze!

    Shopping!…So someone finally got smart. She’s been looking all over town for a toaster cover for her mother….snort!…Not to cover her mother, but for her mother’s toaster (which doesn’t work well but dawg forbid we replace it)…sniff!…Anyways, after trudging up and down the mall, Bed bath and Way Beyond, and a bunch of other places….grunt!…she finally looked on Amazon. Low and behold they had one (one!) nice light blue toaster cover for hardly anything at all….wheeze!…She also ordered something for her sis-inlaw and used up a gift certificate she forgot she had loaded into her account. How about that for smarts? Finally!…chorkel!

    “Miracle” was in color last night also.

    Alice laying on her new package of catnip. She is looking at my suspiciously because I am getting too close to her catnip. AbbietheKitty doesn’t know it is here yet.

    We also received a lovely 2013 calendar from Snowhook and a card with an amazing book mark enclosed from CHobbit. Thanks C!

  98. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:34 pm on December 10th, 2012

    CHobbit!…If I didn’t mention it before I am mentioning it tonight…snort!…Thanks for the card and the SiberH bookmark…chuffle!…I just love it. I imagine my pal SiberH leading the team when I look at it…snort!

  99. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:35 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Alice!…She looks like a real drug addict in that photo…grunt!

    9:43 pm on December 10th, 2012

    She is wishing that I would open the package. She doesn’t need it open to get high evidently.

    9:50 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Nip!…How come there is no Dawg-Nip for us guys anyways?…sniff!…Maybe that’s what slim jims are for…heh!heh!

    Plunderers got different enclosures in the Christmas cards I sent as I couldn’t find enough of one bookmark to send to everyone. And Rose’s card came back to me needing extra postage. Why would her card need more postage when the others didn’t? Going to the Post Office tomorrow to figure it out. My last Christmas package goes into the mail tomorrow!

    It has been around zero the last two days and will be this warm all week. I did 4 hours of errands in Fairbanks even though the air quality is listed as “unhealthy.” Snowed all day but since it is still snowing, I decided to put off shoveling until tomorrow. I am going to take a nap and then do some house cleaning.

  103. SnowBella
    9:55 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Maybe Alica had mo-he-toes that Staff doesn’t know about, yet.

    Howlers: I’m glad you received on package today. I sent the book via media post because it is so big. One thing you may not know is that there is a case of mistaken identity in the both the DVD and the Book. In the DVD, Jeff King is given credit for picking up Ramey rather than AJ. Belle Starr thinks facts would be checked before producing the DVD and I tend to agree. In the book, the dog listed as Annabelle—our girl—is actually Orion. Belle Starr is equally upset about the mistaken identity, but I told her it is lucky for us neither Annabelle or Orion are literate.

    CHobbit!…Why don’t you just relaz a little bit…snort!…Seems you are always on the go!go!go!…sniff!…You wear me out just reading your posts…wheeze!

    All these cat photos on the blog the last few days make me want to get a cat. These last 6 months have been the first time in my long life without a cat. I figure that I need to move and get sorted about my future before I add to my animal family.

    9:59 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Rebecca!…Those are some major screw-ups by golly. I’m mad right along with Bellie…sniff!

  107. Pancho & Lefty
    10:04 pm on December 10th, 2012

    CHH: Meow.

    Rio: We agree with you. We were pretty upset when we saw both. Our Lady said that Ramey nominating AJ for the Sportsmanship award meant a lot because it showed he appreciated AJ’s actions, but we think the world should know how amazing AJ is—of course, we might be partial.

    Orion and Annabelle are both suspicious of the dog they see in the mirror upstairs. We had no idea we had more dogs on the team, but they say it is true.

  108. Pancho & Lefty
    10:16 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Ha! Our Lady went out to get firewood for the fire she is trying—operative word—to get going, and she fell off the deck into a up-to-her-waist-pile-of-snow! She is still in her dressy work clothes! Oh, that is a laugh that goes all the way to the tip of our tails!

  109. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:23 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Fell!…She fell off the Deck?…snort!…Now you tell me who’s been drinking Mo-heat-toes…heh!heh!…Luckily the snow was there to catch her and her high-heels…chorkel!

  110. Pancho & Lefty
    10:26 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Rio: Our Lady doesn’t drink, but you have it about right with her high-heels sticking up out of the snow and that’s about it. Oh, our sides hurt from laughing! Hoo! Hah! Hee!

  111. Pancho & Lefty
    10:28 pm on December 10th, 2012

    You may not know this about Our Lady, but she has little coordination. AJ prefers her to stay put, and we suspect, if he had his way he would wrap her and all surrounding sharp objects in bubble wrap. Wouldn’t help…

  112. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:29 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Buried!…Did you tw,o help her out of the snow drift?…sniff!…Or did you rummage through her purse while she was stuck?…grunt!

  113. Pancho & Lefty
    10:30 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Rio: Give you one guess, and only one guess.

  114. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:32 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Guess!…Youse rummaged through her purse and her coat pockets…heh!heh!

  115. dawson
    10:35 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Luckily Pancho and Lefty didn’t have the video camera. Hope the only injury is to her pride…and that she gets the fire going!

    T&G: Did Mrs Teitelbaum borrow the bulldozer from your mom?
    Thank her for the lizard bag (beautiful and heavy duty), the blue-eyed Husky pin (looks great on my purple shirt) and especially for the dream catcher you made for mom. I am extremely touched by that gift.

    It is great to be here with my sister. This caregiving is much easier when there are two. We both had a nap today.

  116. SnowBella
    10:35 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Well, I see Pancho and Lefty have been giving the play by play of my uncoordinated evening. Oh, well. Maybe someday I will share about the one and only time I took a Zoomba exercise class.

    Pancho and Lefty are off to train tonight, but if you must know, they riffled through my backpack and pockets. There goes my favorite chapstick…

  117. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:36 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Quiet!…Tupper and Gilly sure have been quiet this evening…sniff!…I wonder whats up with those guys. They usually have a quick remark when someone slides off of a deck in high-heels…heh!heh!

  118. SnowBella
    10:39 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Maybe they are waiting for more of a challenge to flex they funny comeback muscles.

  119. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:42 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Muscle!…I’ve never known them to pass up an opportunity like this before…sniff!…They must not be home tonight…grunt!

  120. SnowBella
    10:45 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Rio: I hate to admit, but this isn’t the first time and likely won’t be the last that my evening has taken a, er, downward slide. It’s pretty par for the course. The only difference is that Pancho and Lefty had the laptop at the time.

  121. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:54 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Rebecca!…Do youse guys put up a Christmas tree?…snort!…It might help get you in that Christmas spirit. At least it helped me and my friend once our little tree was up…sniff!

  122. SnowBella
    11:01 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Rio: We have a tiny, artificial tree I bought for $12 when I was 19. I love the sitting by the lights of my little tree.

  123. SnowBella
    11:05 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Jodi, the person not the puppy, makes a Christmas village every year. She goes all out with her decorations. Here is a picture of this year’s village. It is kind of difficult to see with the sunlight through the window, but she does a wonderful job of making it feel like the holidays!

  124. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:06 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Tannenbaum!…Oh Tannenbaum!…snort!…I love your little Christmas tree Rebecca!…chuffle!…I bet Mother Bogar would look very nice sitting beside it in her pink 60’s outfit…heh!

  125. Tupper and Gilly
    11:09 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Rio – we had to stop laughing before we could post. High heels! Snort, giggle, tee heeheehee. Back in the day, Mama used to have to play dress up for work too. Only she called them “high h e l l s”.

    Rose – you may be wondering where your package is. We had planned to go to the post office today, but with one thing and another plus being exhausted from the &$):$&; show (oops – did we say that outloud?) we didn’t get there in time. Just wanted you to know it is coming and it is not being held for ransom by those rotten goats.

    Staff and Dawson – it was our honor. We’re glad it made Miss Maggie smile.

  126. SnowBella
    11:09 pm on December 10th, 2012

    I’ve always had white lights on the tree until last year, when they finally no longer worked. I tried red lights this year, but I’m not sure I like it as well. Our star is carved from a burl of a birch tree.

  127. SnowBella
    11:11 pm on December 10th, 2012

    T&G: Last week an earthquake was reported in Alaska. It wasn’t a quake. I merely fell off my office chair again.

  128. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:12 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Rebecca!…How tall is that tiny tree? I am imagining it on a small table, but now i think it is bigger than I first imagined…grunt!

  129. SnowBella
    11:14 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Rio: Our tiny tree is about three feet tall. I have it on a hat box on the floor. I placed some red and white patterned fabric as a tree skirt.

  130. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:18 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Awww!…So your tree is just about as high as my tree…sniff!…I was thinking Barbie Doll size at first…heh!…Sorry about that. My tree is 4.5 Newf Paws high, but it is wide. This is only the second time in 6 years that we have been able to put it up for Christmas….chuffle!

  131. Annabelle
    11:20 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Rio: My Lady says good things come in small packages. I’m a small package. You’re a small package. Our trees are small. My Lady wouldn’t lie.

  132. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:46 pm on December 10th, 2012

    Goodnight!…To all the small packages out there and the big ones too…heh!…We are one day closer to Christmas dinner!….wooooo!burp!

  133. Annabelle
