“I hate shopping,” Admin says. “But I need a new suit for these weddings coming up.”

“Then you’ll have to actually enter a store or two,” says Spence. “Have you thought of colors? Fabric? Style?”

“I’m going back to bed.”

    Good Sunday Morning!

    Admin, I love to shop, especially with my BFF, Belle Starr. We are the queens of on line shopping. I do like shopping in the mall too! Maybe we can help…

    Kirby, sorry about your dad, happy about the Yankees!

    Maggie is up top.

    Rebecca: Hope that you are home, safe and sound, in the arms of AJ and the four-leggeds!

    I’m with Admin (and Riö’s friend). Just ask Golinka. snicker

    Morning Rose!

    I don’t think Chet would like “The Birds”.

    Okay, two lakes . . I am now functioning. I had 11 hours of sleep. NICE . .

    Good Sunday Morning! We had our Eggs Oley breakfast. We are now lying on the porch, planning our day, while Mom and Pop read the newspaper.

    Admin doesn’t like to shop either. Heh!

  9. Siber-H
    10:21 am on July 15th, 2012

    Maybe a suit could be purchased online and then Admin. wouldn’t have to go shopping. Mom would try online shopping first. She has retail store shopping phobia.

    Good Morning Everyone!

    12:31 pm on July 15th, 2012

    It is funny how many of our 2-leggeds hate retail shopping. We like it, but they hardly ever take us.
    Next week is the annual Pints for Pups Party at the stadium. It is a Humane Society event, and there will be lots of our kind there. Can’t wait, because we Howlers are Party Animals!

    Mom used to love to shop when she wasn’t so “fluffy”. Now she just looks at things and wishes (but not hard enough to do something about it like CHobbit did.)

    Gus seemed to be a little better this morning. He ate a pretty good breakfast and was more vocal than he has been lately (he used to talk all the time). He is getting a little irritated about having to take so many meds but he’ll adjust. He took his little heart pill like a real champ for all these years. Hopefully, he will stabilize for a little while but we will just have to see what happens. Thank you again for all the positive thoughts, vibes and prayers. We just know they help.

    BooBear: yeah, I must admit, I now love to shop. Too bad that the store options are so few where live and also that I really don’t have places and events to wear fashionable clothing. I can’t buy online because sizes are so varied depending on brands. However, I might go to Anchorage for a day next week to see my sister (who hasn’t seen me at -85 pounds) so I might squeeze in some shopping there–either that or climb a mountain. Five more pounds to go to reach my final goal.

    Sending good thoughts to Gus–give him a pat and snuggle from me. I miss my cat but don’t know if I want to commit to another one. Off to walk my dogs on the flood plain. BBL

    It has been a cool summer and heating oil was delivered last week (there goes $1,000). Usually I don’t get a summer delivery {{{sigh}}}

    Hmmm – Mama is going to be in Admin’s home town next week. Should she drag him, kicking and screaming, into the suit store?

    Weddings!…Shopping!…Don’t get me started…grump!

    Busy!…Busy, busy morning and now everyone is taking a little rest before Beau gets carted off to the groomer…heh!heh!…I love it when he leaves the house and doesn’t come back with her…chorkel!…I can just imagine him sitting in the dryer cage after hes been wonderfluffed…chuffle!

    Movie!…She has put in one of those old movies she likes, its called, My Sister Eileen…grunt! …I think a very young Jack Lemmon is in it…snort!

    Father!…Of the Bride?…snort!…Rosie isn’t getting married, is she?…grunt!…Maybe one of his sons that we never hear about is tying the knot…heh!…For him to have to get a new suit, it must be some close relative…chorkel!

    2:46 pm on July 15th, 2012

    I think Spencer’s getting married . . NOT!

    Just in from Golinka . .
    It’s a gorgeous day here at the art show. The weather is lovely and there are plenty of people around. And LOOK who blurred in to check on us!

    Gah!…We’ve been looking all over for Beau! His beauty bath is coming up at 1:30…snort!…How the heck did he manage to get all the way to the East Coast?…grunt! …He better get his black butt back here ASAP!

    Zoe was going to take Rose (the dog not the human) over to the Groomer’s this morning for her first ever shaving of the fleece. Then Zoe got sick. I took her over. I stayed at her head plying her with treats and got fur, drool, fur and drool all over me.

    Rose was a good girl! But it took 3 hours! I have now had a long shower and I’m going to rest because I’m going out to dinner with my sis! India House where we come. Well, we’re leaving her at 4:30.

  20. Melanie
    2:50 pm on July 15th, 2012

    See this? With any luck it won’t part and we’ll get some rain. Not holding my breath though.

  21. Mollypop's Mom
    3:21 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Melanie – That’s us at the far left in the yellow and red blobs. We got totally dumped on with much-needed rain.

    3:33 pm on July 15th, 2012

    I’m not much of a shopper — got my everyday collar and my special Iowa collar and my jacket for when it’s cold out. Good enough! Mom’s not much of a clothes shopper, either. She likes to do it in one fell swoop — a couple years ago she got summer clothes. This year she got spring clothes. She says she’s good to go for awhile. She’s not much for trying stuff on. But craft and office supply stores — watch out for the charge card!!!

  23. OleyHowlers
    3:34 pm on July 15th, 2012

    It got really dark here and we could hear thunder and the sky was really scary. BUT NO RAIN! Mom drove to the village for groceries and she said the streets were soaked. That is only 1 or 1-1/2 mile away from here…to the south!

    Boo, the news on Gus sounds hopeful. Mom says when she is fluffless, she does like to shop for clothing too. She hopes to get that way again. She has made lots of progress but still has a ways to go. Meantime, she goes to the attic and brings down her next clothing size. She long ago stopped getting rid of clothes that were too big or too small depending on her weight gains/losses. So she has clothes in every size. She even has those size dividers between them just like the clothing stores have! LOL.

    3:36 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Hi MollyPop’s Mom, Nothing yet. That mass that hit you? I hope it makes it this far. The small bit of green went north and south of us again.

  25. OleyHowlers
    3:36 pm on July 15th, 2012

    It is very easy to buy clothes online from places like L.L.Bean, because there are lots of details from other people as to how true to size each item is.

  26. Riö –The Evil Pug
    3:56 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Bath!…Well, Beau is at the Groomers…heh!heh!heh!heh!heh!…The good news is she only charges 15.00 now because he behaves himself…snorkel!…That Groomer can pick him right up and toss him in a kennel with no problem…sniff!…My friend still can’t pick him up, comfortably anyways….grunt!

  27. Riö –The Evil Pug
    3:57 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Gah!…Because of Beau we are missing some of the game…dammit!

    4:02 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Fellow Sibers, Buying clothes from LL Bean is another thing our moms have in common. Mom says it is so easy to shop with them online. Too bad they don’t carry suits for Admin.

    Boo, Thanks for the update on Gus. It does sound hopeful. Please keep getting better, Gus.

    I hate it! Unless it is at estate sales, then I love it! Or used book stores…or office supply stores…or hardware stores. Hmmm. Just don’t make me try on clothes.
    Today I bought some Limoges soup bowls, a food mill, a baguette bread pan, several books, 2 bean pots and much, much more. Whoo Hoo! A good shopping day.
    I see that Detroit acquired Prince Fielder. I will occasionally watch a ball game and I check the standings once every two weeks or so.

  39. Barb & Maggie
    4:59 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Hi everyone, we have been busy here. This morning Barb had to catch 4 chickens and take them to a breeder who wanted them. If you google Mille Fleur, the images that show up look exactly like 2 of them, one hen on the far left, and the rooster on the far right. They are actually called Mille Fleur d’uccle, and are one of the showiest and nicest chickens. Barb was relieved that someone wanted them who would take good care of them and who had a nice clean and safe facility for them. The Millies are Peaches mom and dad.

    Three weeks ago Barb found a nest of 8 eggs that the little hen had layed out in the tall grass. She set them in our incubator for our friend in Wisconsin who has Sedar (sigh). Last night they started hatching, and so far we have 6 little bitty Millie chicks and 3 regular chicks. One is ivory like Peaches. It is fun, and is probably our last time to do a hatch. (Sob, sob.)

    All this is a little bitter sweet for someone who has chickenlady as part of her email address!

    And we are wondering who is getting married. He said weddings, so maybe more than one of his kids is getting hitched.

  40. Rose
    5:02 pm on July 15th, 2012

    MollyPop’s Mom, there’s the right attitude! The Yankees just blew a come from behind, but I still love those guys!

    Gus, please get better soon. We all love you!

    Rio, don’t you ever go to the groomer’s, or are you stinky pug?

  41. BooBear
    5:04 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Barb, will Peaches be lonely in her new Hen House or will she have other chickens to play with?

  42. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:07 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Home!…Boy, was Beau happy to see us…heh!heh!…He was sitting in the dryer when we arrived. I bet that is hot as hell on a hot day like today…snort!…He is really happy to be home now…chuffle!

  43. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:09 pm on July 15th, 2012

  46. Barb & Maggie
    5:26 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Barb is going to try to do a fancy coop at Josh and Jess’s new house. They think they can get away with having chickens as they are outside the city limits and have 2 acres. We are going to keep 6 – Peaches and 5 girlfriends.

  47. Barb & Maggie
    5:30 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Peaches mom and dad look like these 2.

  48. dawson

  49. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:39 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Chickens!….My friends chickens, Agnus and Helen, never looked like that…snort!… These guys look like they are dressed up for a Halloween party or sumthing….heh!

  50. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:40 pm on July 15th, 2012

  51. Barb & Maggie
    5:41 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Rio, I think you can stop looking for your big plant!

    BTW, these chickens are little – 1 1/2 lbs. for the hen and almost 2 lb. for the rooster.

  52. Barb & Maggie
    5:43 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Rio, They have such heavily feather legs and feet that they walk funny, sort of a strut.

    5:45 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Over!…Game over! Rockies lose again!…grump!…They win one game and then lose two…sniff!…I’m not sure, but I don’t think that is the way a team goes to the World Series of Base of Balls…grumble!spit!

    6:14 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Well Mr. Pug, we’ll just have to see if I’m still a loyal fan when the Yankees are in a slump, if that ever happens. Hee hee.

  56. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:17 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Mom!…Yeah well, its easy to be a fan of a wealthy, talent ridden team who hardly ever loses two in a row…grunt!…The true test comes when you are stuck being a Twins or Rockies fan…heh!

    6:24 pm on July 15th, 2012

    See!…Boots really has it tough, but he is still a fan…heh!…Now, the Pirates used to be a very bad team, but they have turned around and are coming here next…gulp!…Clint Hurdle has really done something with that down and out team….snort!… This gives me hope that my team will one day be The Team to be worried about…chuffle!

    I have been a Yankees fan since I was in the fourth grade. My parents were Dodger’s fans. I watched the game on TV when Don Larson pitched his no-hitter. Boring!

    I’m not a fair-weather fan, evidence being I’m a big Sabres fan and our hockey team Bisons before 1970 when we were in the American league.

  61. Mollypop's Mom
    6:56 pm on July 15th, 2012

    okay, Rio reads their post the same way I do. This is great news!

  65. Tupper and Gilly
    7:17 pm on July 15th, 2012

    yes – it was a very good show. Yesterday with the heat it was very slow. But today was lovely and people were in the mood to SHOP!
    The producer came through about an hour before closing time and said there were warnings of a HUGE storm coming in, so they wanted everyone to close up early and get on the road. Everyone was helping each other pack and load so they got out in less than two hours! So, instead of getting home at midnight, they will be home by a decent time to give us tummies!
    Woo hoo

  66. Riö –The Evil Pug

  68. Rose
    7:27 pm on July 15th, 2012

    T&G, I so excited that your mum had an excellent show! May the whole world someday know what a talented artist she is.

    I haven’t been a Yankees fan as long as MPM, but I was there in the 60’s and 70’s when they were were a very bad team. I will always remain true to the Yankees…my pop was the biggest Yankee fan.

    Hi everyone. Some really bad thunder here, so I definitely had to comfort mom and dad a lot.

    And regarding Admin and a new suit — I have a really good idea for him and he can then be a real trend setter. How about Hawaiian pants? I know where he can get a really good deal on them too.


  71. Tupper and Gilly
    7:36 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Mama is taking Dad to Golden Corral for dinner, only he doesn’t know it. He loves that place, especially their fried chicken. But there aren’t any near us. There is one between the show and home, so she plugged the address into the GPS and told Dad just to go where he us directed.
    He’s gonna be SO happy.

    7:45 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Rose, have you seen the movie, “61” about the Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris home run summer of 1961?
    It is one of our favorite baseball movies.

    We have a Golden Corral here. Love it!

    8:05 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Yum, yum, yum, yum. Just got back from the restaurant. Am I full or what?

    I had “Malabri Scallops and Shrimp: The enticing pair is delicately napped in a lavish sauce of carmelized garlic, tomato and light cream tempered with fresh curry leaves and scented with sweet cardamom.”

    YOWZERS! It was good.

    And we have RAIN!

  76. Tupper and Gilly
    8:07 pm on July 15th, 2012

    Molten chocolate cascading from the top of a fountain. And they have skewers and banana slices and marshmellows and strawberries and all kinds of things that you hold under the flow of the chocolate.
    Mama is not much for sugary stuff, but Dad? Well, Dad has the metabolism of an overcaffinated chipmunk, so he loves his sweets!

    One of my estate sale books was Audubon’s Animals. He drew all manner of squirrels and chipmunks but the overcaffinated chipmunk is nowhere to be found.

    People ask me “Do you root for the Diamondbacks since you’re from Phoenix?” Since they came into being years after we left, the short answer is no. We root for both the Yankees and the Mets. We pretty much root for any team with an NY on their caps, even the Jets. Now we have to find some love in our hearts for the Nets, but really baseball is our game. Our greatest baseball moment, indeed one of the best days of our lives, was seeing David Cone’s perfect game on Yogi Berra day 1999.

    T&G, we are thrilled to hear of your great show!!! And dinner (especially the chocolat fountain) sound scumpdillyitious.

    Hi Terry, YSAS always feels he takes his life in his hands when he goes out into NYC with his Red Sox cap on.

    Had a great time. Now for bed. Patsy went upstairs even before I got home. I bet she is taking up the whole bed.

    Wookie, I think your idea of the Hawaiian pants is excellent.

    Rose: We can help Admin shop for his suit. Do you think he’d prefer pink sparkles or silver sparkles? Why does my two-legged roll her eyes all the time?

    Bluecat: My two-legged says thank you for the surprise. Jericho is no Jamie, but he is exciting just the same.

    T&G: Congrats on the reelly big shew!

    Melanie: My two-legged says now selling the idea to the model begins…

    CHarris: $1000. is quite a steep heating oil bill in July but your “cool summer” sounds wonderful. It will get above 100 degrees here tomorrow and cool down overnight to 80. Swelter!

    New York fans! I also got a little book called, The Subway Series thinking one of you New Yorkers would enjoy it. Anyone?

    T&G: Hoorah! Your folks had a really good shew and will be well fed, happy and hopefully carrying doggie bags when they get home.

    Admin: Yes! Hawaiian pants!

    Oh my I am glad youse guys are getting rain. We got some this morning also.

    But Dawson, oh NO, her weather is supposed to get up to 100 tomorrow and no rain. Maggie will be very happy as she is often cold, but that usually means that Dawson can’t put on the air conditioning as much as she would like.
    There is a 30% chance of rain on Tuesday. I think that means a 70% chance of no rain so I am not hopeful..

    Poor Dawson.

    The AC is off, Mom is bundled up in her shawl, I am near nekkid and damp with sweat, good thing everyone here is blind!
    I’m going up to Staff’s AC’d room to finish reading Playing for Pizza by Grisham. Any one want to read it next?

    We are over the moon to hear that Amalia and Leonard had a good show. Happy, happy!

    Night all, we are crawling to bed.

    Turtleman came by today and said he was on strike as far as watering the plants because Staff and I complained of how he did it. I tried to blame Staff but he said I had agreed with her. He was oblivious to my begging and told me I better water the flower seedlings that Staff had planted because they were parched.

    Staff!…Seals and Croft made everyone feel better after being out in the still hot air watering tomater plants…snort!…They are Loaded with little tomatoes right now…wooooo!…And the peppers are starting to go-to-town producing…snort!snort!…Our garden is growing despite the drought and Beaus attempt to recitfy it…heh!

    Ah, Staff, that was nice…watching those dogs run free with their two-leggeds on the beach. That’s what summer’s all about.

    Dawson: Grishom is always good. You can put us on the list.

    See all of youse tomorrow.

    Unending!…Work. And then there is always stuff that needs done, and repaired and watered and trimmed and taken out and swept and mopped and vaccuumed and laundered and dusted and re-stocked…ugh!…This huge place is just too much for my friend to take care of all by herself (practically)…sniff!…What she wouldn’t give to be able to talk her mother into selling it all and moving into a duplex sort of thing where they could each have their own space with a lot less work….grunt!wheeze!

    BearSpiritDog: You got it! On my latest trip I saw a sign for Camano Island. I really wanted to go there but…time was short.

    Mom agrees that shopping-for-fluffies is not that much fun. She discovered this a.m. that there are 3 tops currently fit for church. One pair of pants, plus her “dressy” jeans which she wore today. Her class was to be the choir today, she had fun.

    I find that even if I am a little fluffy, my collar still fits just fine.

    Yea for the Royals folks on a really good shew. Chewy bones for the house!

    Fluffy!…Admin isn’t fluffy and he hates shopping…grunt!…So I don’t think the hatred of shopping can be narrowed down to ones waist size…sniff!…The whole experience of trying to find what you want and need while having no luck. Then paying too much for something that isn’t quite right is what always irks my friend…snort!

    Well, they got home, and they did NOT like the surprize Gilly had left for them…all over the couch. Being the Lady that I am, I will not go into detail, but will say that it was brown, and watery and smelly, and Mama and Dad were not pleased at all – not one little bit. But thank goodness for a leather couch. Its is all cleaned up, and good as new. Welcome home folks! That will teach you to leave us behind! Especiallly when there is thunder and lightening!
    (Thank goodness Dad was in a really good mood after all that chocolate stuff)

    Barb – we do not envy you all the work of moving. We have done it a few times, but we are much more settled in here than we have ever been anywhere else – it would be a nightmate to move!
    (And your chickens are just adorable!)

    The rain has stopped now and it is hot and humid – even at 11 pm. Sounds like an AC night to us.

    Bella – when selling it to the model, just remember to bat your eyes, tilt your head just so, and don’t forget the sassy walk.

    Yawn!…Well, everyone is dead-tired around here tonight…sniff!…So we are all headed off to our cool soft beds now. Mine has my baseball toys just where I left them so I can snuggle right in after turning around 3 or 4 or 5 times…snorkel!…Beau just sort of flops into his hard cold bed. He has no finesse at all…grunt!

    AbbietheKitty is in the room complaining that she wants her supper. So I better go serve her.
