Shower Songs: From To Fetch A Thief

We had a nice snack – salsa and chips for Bernie, king-sized biscuit for me – and then Bernie took a shower, hanging his bathrobe over the bathroom door. This was the robe Leda had always called Bernie’s ratty robe, although I didn’t know why, since the pattern didn’t have a single rat on it, was all about martini glasses with long-legged women in them. Bernie loved his robe, an old robe he’d had a long time, and that used to belong to a buddy from Army days named Tanner who Bernie never talked about except for one night when we were camping out in the desert and he’d been staring into the fire. “Poor Tanner.” That was all he said.

But now, in the shower, he was in a good mood. I could tell from his singing. He went through some of his favorites: “Lonesome 77203,” “Born To Lose,” “A Tear Fell,” “Sea Of Heartbreak;” yes, a very good mood. Steam came pouring through the doorway and I went closer; love the feel of steam. And what was this? Maybe Bernie didn’t have the shower curtain quite right, because water was pooling on the floor. I tasted it: a little too warm and soapy, but not bad, not bad at all.

    I had to copy and paste the youtube link. I am thinking of Bernie in the shower singing this. Ahem. Maybe I read too many romance novels.

    Love the music . . .

    I'm putting up a link for a song.

    In honor of my chasing a rainbow this morning to snap a picture.

    My second shower of the day. No steam in this one Chet!

    The dogs had fun.

    The camera is now drying out!

    Nice way to start the day!

    I couldn't open the link, but it's too early for singing…..

    Good morning all.

    (I really enjoyed your commentary for a change.)

    Hi Melanie! I just get an advertisement for a Chevy. But it's still too early for singing….

  10. Barb & Maggie
    5:17 am on October 16th, 2010

    Love that song! Barb is busy in the kitchen, cooking up a home made chicken pot pie. Son Josh, Jessica and the two wee ones are coming out to visit the farm today. Jessica, D-I-L, doesn't eat any "factory farm" raised poultry due to the unhealthy and inhumane way they are raised, so we start with a fresh organic chicken from a local farm. Simmer for several hours and go from there. Lots of work, but worth it when you take the first bite. And, of course, I get some yummy scraps. I might even share.

    Good Morning Bara&MagPie! Home Made Chicken Pot Pie. That needs all Caps!

    The Pack is drooling.

    We asked Dan what he wanted for his first night home and he said anything except canned peaches. The Rehab place must have gotten a deal on those!

    Sob!Sob!Sob!…dammit!…I'm in a Sea of Heartbreak right now…sob!sob!sob! …We'll get um this afternoon! by Golly!

    Wha!?…Ooooer! We are off to have breakfast at her mothers house…smack!

    Melanie, We can see the rainbow, and the picture is beautiful.

  16. B.Stover
    5:59 am on October 16th, 2010

    I clicked on Melanie's link and got it but I thought that that was a different song.

    Barb: I love chicken pot pie! I'm drooling also.

    Melanie: Your rainbow is beautiful. Were the storms bad?

    Poor Rio. Chicken pot pie would probably lessen the heartbreak.

    B.Stover: that song was in honor of my rainbow chasing and second shower.

  19. B.Stover
    6:49 am on October 16th, 2010

    Melanie: You caught the rainbow! The shower is just a temporary inconvenience.

    I'm going to the lake again to see how the various birds are doing. (It's still sunny and beautiful here.)

    Kirby: Hmmm, rabbits in Denver eating cars…Rio has a lot to deal with, goats, bedbugs, and now rabbits. He better give Rocky a call.

    Melanie: Beautiful rainbow. Love the song too. The Sea of Heartbreak one was good also,Chet.

    Macy: I don't blame you. Maybe the team needs more of those interesting necklaces. Maybe I need one.

    Poor Tanner.

    Good morning to all the heartbroken Rangers fans and to you Damn Yankee fans too.

    Barb and Maggie: Chicken Pot Pie sounds lovely.

    Melanie: The house is all ready for Dan to come home. The rainbow is showing the way. Tomorrow's the day!

    I can't hear the song because this computer is not working properly yet.

    A Plea to Chet and Spence from "down under".

    Ahem . .

    Oh where, oh where has Colonel Bob’s Astrid flown?

    Can Bernie and Chet bring her back home?

    The ones down under are hoping to hear,

    We’re stuck, don’t you know, in the blogosphere.

    Come on, Spence, we need to know;

    Who was the good guy and who was the foe. . .

  23. Gus & BooBear
    8:22 am on October 16th, 2010

    Good one, Melanie! SQ must think if he just waits long enough we will all forget what's her name and who did it stuff. Doesn't he know that readers aren't like that? Usually, even if the book isn't that good (not SQ/PA's—always good) readers are going to stay until the end…just to know.

    We just read all of yesterday's posts. Didn't know the outcome of the game and were very excited reading Rio and all's posts. Pardon our French, but—–Damn Yankees!! But like Macy said, it's a series so no kool-aide drinking yet. Mom & Dad went to a high school football game last night to see a good friend's daughter perform at half-time. Actually, they went for the game and she happened to be part of the dance team. Kirby T., your dad would have enjoyed the game. Our team won 55-42. Missed an extra point early in the game and were really afraid it was going to come back and bite us in the ___! But luckily, all worked out well.

    What time is the game today and does anyone know what channel is showing it?

  24. Gus & BooBear
    8:24 am on October 16th, 2010

    Oh, and Melanie, great picture!! Worth getting a little wet.

    Game 2!…Starts at 4:00 EST on TBS….grunt!… So that means we have 2 hours to do a few errands and try and read some of Dan’s wonderful book!…snort! ….I will be back in a little while… gruff!

  26. Siber-H
    9:25 am on October 16th, 2010

    Melanie's link worked for me. Chet's link did not work, and if his link is Sea of Heartbreak, we like that song. Mom has that song somewhere on a cd with George Strait and Jimmy Buffet doing it as a duet.

    Good poem and picture, Melanie. Dan is coming home tomorrow!

    Gus and BooBear, Congratulations on your team winning.

    Homemade chicken pot pie would make a dog feel better after last night's tragedy. I haven't recovered yet.

  27. B.Stover
    9:27 am on October 16th, 2010

    I've been wondering what the purpose of today's blog is. Since Bernie is in such a good mood, which team do you think he's for? Was Sea of Heartbreak a turn of the knife. (Snicker.) All I know is that with all those songs it's a very long shower. (I didn't think of that while reading TFAT.)

    Melanie: Great poem.

    Where are Mollypop and Sam? I'm being damned all alone today.

  28. Siber-H
    9:31 am on October 16th, 2010

    Dawson, I am finally remembering to post the answer to your and mom's question about my neighbors going squirrel hunting. Yes, they eat the squirrels. They seem to eat everything they kill, but these are not people who need to hunt to put food on the table. At least they eat it anyway.

    I wonder where the coyotes are that should be eating the rabbits that are eating the cars at the Denver airport.

  29. Siber-H
    9:34 am on October 16th, 2010

    Stover, I think Sam's girl has an interview at a college this weekend so Sam and Molly will be away from the blog.

  30. Riö - The Evil
    9:41 am on October 16th, 2010

    Plan B!… We decided to sit down and read some of Dan’s wonderful book…snuffle!… Now she is going to go order our favorite pizza from our favorite pizza place and then we will take a drive and pick it up!…snort!snort!….Very exciting stuff going on around here!…yeep!… I feel a few twirls building up but will control myself….grunt! …One hour and 15 minutes till the game starts!….Wooooo!

    SiberH!…They put up a fence out at the DIA parking lot so the rabbits are now very safe from the coyotes and free to eat all they want….heh!

  31. dawson
    9:48 am on October 16th, 2010

    Siber H: And you say you don't have a good memory! Wonder what squirrel tastes like.

    Someone had asked if moose tastes like beef. Moose tastes like it is distantly related to beef but with an extra flavor kick that is all it's own.

  32. Melanie
    9:56 am on October 16th, 2010

    Okay, if they let in the coyotes to eat the rabbits, what are they going to let in to eat the coyotes?

    Coyote is not at the top of the food chain. Which means they will have more pups if they get more to eat and nothing to hold their numbers down mean they will zoom. Wolves and catamounts (mountain lions for those of you out west) eat coyotes . . . This could get to be a very dangerous parking lot!

  33. Siber-H
    10:02 am on October 16th, 2010

    but interesting, Melanie…very interesting.

  34. Riö - The Evil
    10:22 am on October 16th, 2010

    Back!…We are back with the goods!….heh!… Pizza is being reheated in the oven and we have time to read some more of Dan’s wonderful book….snort!…. I love Saturdays!…sigh.

  35. B.Stover
    10:28 am on October 16th, 2010

    Good grief!! Rio sounds happy.

  36. Melanie
    10:53 am on October 16th, 2010

    Riö, the pizza sounds good. What kind did your friend get?

    I had liverwurst today. I know it is an acquired taste, but I was fighting to keep the Pack off the table!!

    I bet Chet would like liverwurst.

    The way to eat liverwurst is to NOT read the ingredients.

  37. B.Stover
    11:03 am on October 16th, 2010

    Melanie: You're funny! You don't want to read the ingredients of any sausage.

    11:05 am on October 16th, 2010

    Cap!….Everyone hold their paws and hands up to the Cap!…snort!…The game is just about to begin and this time For Real!…chorkel!!

    Stover!… If this is what happy is, then I am happy!…heh!… Pizza, and Baseball and my friend here with me…snuffle!… Now if the Rockies were playing, I would be in an entirely different frame of mind….gruff! …As I’m sure Min Pin knows what I mean…snort!

  39. Riö - The Evil
    11:07 am on October 16th, 2010

    Melanie..great poem and picture. Mom saw it on the Giant Screeen at the Big Orange Box and said it is super cool on a 21 inch screen.

    PSQA is definely for the Rangers. No true Red Sox fan would ever be for the Yankees. Ever.

    One time mom opened some liver that had gone bad. THAT was the worstliver.

    We won't be able to blog along with the game as we are going to watch it on DVR when mom gets home.

  42. Mollie (a black pood
    11:11 am on October 16th, 2010

    Go Rangers! And the Giants are playing right after the Rangers game. Go Giants!What a baseball day. I might have to have a couple of cosmos to help me through it.

  43. Riö - The Evil
    11:14 am on October 16th, 2010

    Interesting! ….. 3 up 3 down – exactly the way the game started last night. Even with the same batters!….grunt!

  44. Riö - The Evil
    11:15 am on October 16th, 2010

    Hey!…Dawson is here to help us root for the Rangers!…. snort!… Min Pin, I have to believe you are right about Spencer not wanting the Yankees to win this…heh!… I hope he is watching the game with us today!….wooooo!!!

  45. macy the min pin
    11:16 am on October 16th, 2010

    If the game is starting we must go, don't want to hear anything.


  46. Riö - The Evil
    11:28 am on October 16th, 2010

    Wow!….You don’t see home base stolen very often against the Yankees!….Woooo!….This is a very good sign!…snort!….Rangers score first!…woooooo!

  48. B.Stover
    11:37 am on October 16th, 2010

    Rangers scored first yesterday also.

    And I said Bernie not PA or SQ.

    What does cosmos mean? Also I don't understand the references to kool aid.

  49. Riö - The Evil
    11:45 am on October 16th, 2010

    Melanie!…Does Dan have any allergies?…snort!

    Cosmo!…Isn’t that a type of drink Mollie?…heh!

  50. Riö - The Evil
    11:49 am on October 16th, 2010

    Home Run!….Wooooo!…. Murphy scores!…Wooooo!… 2-0 Rangers!…heh! …So far so good!…clap!clap! – clap!clap!clap!!…snort!

  51. Siber-H
    11:52 am on October 16th, 2010

    Stover, remember that cult led by Jim Jones that drank kool aid with poison in it and killed themselves because Jones told them to do it. Wasn't it something like 600 or 900 of them that committed suicide…it was so long ago.

    I don't know what cosmos is either.

  52. Siber-H
    12:00 pm on October 16th, 2010

    3-o now. I hope the Yankees are rattled now, but they probably aren't.

  53. Mollie (a black pood
    12:16 pm on October 16th, 2010

    Here it is: Cosmopolitan (Cosmo)

    4 parts Vodka, 2 parts Triple Sec, 2 parts Cranberry juice, 1 part fresh lime juice. Put in shaker with ice & shake. Pour into martini glass. (Fresh lime is way better in this drink) Also you can use pomogranite juice instead of cranberry. My boy brought over the ingredients for this as he knew I would be watching games. He also brought over ingredients for guacomole dip, probably because he is making the same things while he watches the games…

  54. B.Stover
    12:33 pm on October 16th, 2010

    Yes…Cosmopolitan…Sex and the City. I like them. Thank you Mollie ABP. I use Cointreau rather than Triple Sec.

    SH: Thank you. I don't think I ever knew that Jones used kool aid.

    Rangers!….Are up to bat! Bottom of the 7th with the 8th inning looming ahead…gulp!…They need to get more runs this inning. It would be too easy for the Yankees to catch up and devour them…yelp!…Still 7-2.

    8th Inning!… Gulp! …They already have a man on base, but the Rangers pitcher has gotten one out already!… woooooo!….Come on Rangers!…grunt!

  72. Barb & Maggie
    2:25 pm on October 16th, 2010

    Melanie, We had a wonderful visit. Jackson, who is my age (my

    b-day is 5/7/09, and his is 5/4/09) never stops moving. I would have to be herding him all day! I had to go on a leash, because every time I went up to lick his face or ears, he fell over. Not sure why!

    Pot Pie was a big hit, they ate the whole thing. When Lyla was leaving she said "MiMi, I LOVED your Chicken Pot Pie! Barb said that made it all worth while.

  73. Siber-H
    2:26 pm on October 16th, 2010

    The Rangers have almost made it. GO RANGERS One more inning to live through.

  76. Riö - The Evil
    2:33 pm on October 16th, 2010

    Focus!… I see too many of the Rangers players smiling and laughing in the dug-out!…grunt!…They need to stay focused and not think they have this in the bag!…snuff!…The Yankees are making a pitching change and they still have one inning to bat ….shudder!…It could all go down in flames very quickly….yeep!

  77. Riö - The Evil
    2:44 pm on October 16th, 2010

    Gah!….They were not able to score in the 8th like they should have!….gasp!…Now we watch as the Yankees come up to bat….gurgle!snuff!

    Whooo Hoooo! Whew. The Rangers had a worse record against the Yankees than the Twins. But they won one at home. YeeeaaaaHoooo!

    It wasn'tplanned. I don't have the attention span to plan something like that.

    Hey everybody! I'm glad the Rangers won — sorry I wasn't here to see it, but Mom had to work again. Dagnabbit! The good news is that I got to see Iowa beat Michigan today — that's football, for all you baseball addicts!

    Gus and BooBear: Dad probably would rather have watched your game than his — our team lost 45-6. Even worse, we lost our center. Not to an injury on the field, though. During pre-game warm-ups the guys do a "jump and bump," and he came down wrong on his foot — they think he broke his ankle! (That move was not Dad's idea!!!)

    Melanie: Yum, liverwurst. Mom is the pickiest eater on the planet — although she doesn't like much of anything (except cake and cookies, which is why she's so fluffy!), she does like liverwurst. But she prefers to think of it as braunschweiger — a much less liver-y name!!!

    Black!….The Pitcher with the Really Black Beard is pitching now!…heh!… I marvel at his facial hair every time I see him… snort!

    Hey!…Kirby showed up!…snort!

  119. dawson
    5:32 pm on October 16th, 2010

    I hate liver but I really like liverwurst. I know, makes no sense.

    Giants just have to get 3 outs.

    They say Brian Wilson (the closer pitcher) dyes his beard and I guess it is true. It is very black…

  121. Riö - The Evil
    5:47 pm on October 16th, 2010

    Nooooo!…Crap!… Now we have to rely on Black Beard to strike those guys out as quick as possible with NO RUNS allowed!….gulp!

  122. Riö - The Evil
    6:01 pm on October 16th, 2010

    Yes!….Black Beard did it!…Wooooo!….Giants take the first game of the NL….heh!

    Hey Rio! I'm just sorry I missed the reward for the 100th post — NOT! Please tell me I would have been exempt, too!

  124. Mollie (a black pood

    Cody Ross, Brian Wilson, good for you. We won. Go Giants!!!

    Good Night for baseball. Even though I wasn't able to see the second game because someone thinks hockey should be watched instead. Congratulations to the Texas Rangers and San Francisco Giants.

    WOO WOO Giants Won!!! whew

    Black Beard's beard is a darker color than his hair and eyebrows. Maybe he hopes to intimidate the batters by looking that way.

    Good Night All!!

    Siber-H: Yes, that is his hope. He calls himself The Assasin.

    Assassin that is.

    I guess it was a good day for all — Rangers, Giants and Hawkeyes. What more could you want? Oh, and I almost forgot, Clemson won, too!!! What a great day!

    Oh rats! (Sorry Mollypop — just an expression!) I just remembered tomorrow is Sunday. Nothing against Sundays, it's just that it'll be "Sunday with Ingrid." Nothing against Ingrid, it's just that that makes at least one more day without any Astrid activity. When Mom was shelving today she noticed a book called Astrid and Veronika. She said she almost grabbed it just so she could read about Astrid again!!!

    Thanks to all of the Ranger supporters here today. We just now finished the game. Wooooooo Hooooooooo! Now we have to travel across the Mason-Dixon to go to the nasty place. Be safe, guys.

    I crack up every time I think about getting all poodled up.

    We had pizza tonight too. Mom didn't like it, but she wouldn't give me her share, sheeesh. And Mom is the pickiest eater on earth. She likes the cookies and cakes too. And she is fluffy too. heh heh

    Oops! Sorry — that should be Maggie with the rats, not Mollypop!!!

    Macy: I don't see how your mom could be any pickier than mine. My mom won't eat anything green except green beans — and mint, she loves anything mint, especially chocolate mint. But that means no lettuce or peas or any other veggies. And the people of Iowa almost didn't let her move there when they found out she doesn't like corn! She doesn't like nuts or coconut or fish or seafood. In fact, the list of things she doesn't eat is probably longer the the ones she will! Her doctor wants her to go to a dietitian, but Mom's afraid she'll get yelled at when her poor eating habits are discovered!!!

    6:40 pm on October 16th, 2010

    Oops, guess I shouldn't have written that last thing. Now Mom's making me shut off the computer. I can't help it if she hasn't developed her palate since first grade!!!

    Good night, y'all!
