Snowhook (More)

“You had a conversation with Rebecca of Snowhook Kennel?” says Spence.

“In a manner of speaking,” says Admin. “She’s extended a very nice invitation to the Plunderers.”

“And that is?”

“They can each send her a 4×6 photograph. She’ll vacuum-seal the photos and AJ will carry them with him on the Iditarod trail. So you’ll sort of be on the trail, too, if you get the idea.”

“I do. What kind of photo are you thinking of?”

“Hmm,” Admin says. “The one from New Year’s Eve?”

“Maybe not.”

Welcome Buddy and Oreo.

    Now I want to see the photo from New Year’s Eve. (The photo with Spence and Audrey on the porch is a good one.)

    Now to get a photo of me… my Stormy Kromer? What a nice gesture AJ and Rebecca.

    Good morning all.

    Good Morning B!

    I think I want to see the picture of Admin dancing on the table with a lampshade on his head. 🙂

    Reading back from last night…

    B&M: Yes, I too was born at Lenox Hill Hospital. But I’m pretty sure my parents didn’t have $1.3 million to seal off a whole floor.

    T&G: Make sure your mum keeps strong and carries on! Don’t let CL make any last minute appeals. Royal Mum, You are woman, let your roar be heard!!!!!!

    Rebecca: Ill send a picture (and I hate being photographed!!) only if Belle Starr send one of hers to me. She has to wear something sparkly though!

    Oh goodness, can you just see that photo? Audrey and Pearl upside down snoring away. The eggnog bowl tipped over and completely licked clean. Admin snoring in a chair tipped against the wall, with Spence trying to balance an empty champagne bottle on his head . . . Yes, that was quite a night!

    Morning B! Zoë is taking Gracie to the V*E*T today to get her rabies shot. I am going to try to get my *&%#%&() upstairs monitor working.

    ZoĂ« feels good today and is GOING because she wants to get out of the house. Can’t blame her for that. Looks like hazardous weather tomorrow.

    Went and looked at the Race info for 1/27. Going to be a long weekend for Rebecca and her Plunderers!

    Safe Travels to Bella!

    Hi Rose! Have to figure out what picture to send. . . It will be of the Newfs but trying to get all of them in one picture can be quite a problem.

  5. B.Stover
    9:39 am on January 10th, 2012

    Hi Rose and Melanie. I think I’m going to send a picture of my Doberman, Brandy. He would have loved the race!

  6. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    9:47 am on January 10th, 2012

    Bee, I would love to see a picture of Brandy!

    What a nice gesture! Rebecca and AJ are so thoughtful!

  7. Barb & Maggie
    9:48 am on January 10th, 2012

    Good morning all! Another lovely day today, in the mid 50’s.

    Sounds like Admin and Spence had a wilder New Year’s Eve celebration than we did!

  8. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    9:52 am on January 10th, 2012

    Has anyone read the Hunger Games? Mom and Dad are listening to the talking book and wow, what a great read! (That is for Bee)

  9. Rose
    10:04 am on January 10th, 2012

    Melanie: I can’t imagine what getting all the Newfs in one picture will be like. Does your camera have a wide-angle lense??

    B: I would love to see Brandy!

    I think Rio’s picture should have the honor of being on top, since he and his friend aren’t able to go in person….just sayin’

  10. Sam
    10:11 am on January 10th, 2012

    Wolfie, Audible calls their talking books a great “listen.”. B won’t like that either.

  11. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:15 am on January 10th, 2012

    Photo!… OH Crap! …snort!… Now she will try to take my damned picture again with that damned camera….sniff! … I don’t think being on “top” of the pile should really matter, but if it does I think Melanie and her gang of Newfs should be there….snort!….All of those Newfies could pull that sled when the A-Team needs a rest…heh!

  12. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:16 am on January 10th, 2012

    Audrey!….I definitely think Audrey and Wookie should be together during the trip…snorkel!

  13. Melanie

    Pearl needs a picture of her own.

    Why does the world insist on using verbs as nouns? Sigh!

  15. Tupper and Gilly
    10:44 am on January 10th, 2012

    Good morning all –
    Wow, Rebecca, what a lovely offer. We are going to try to trick Mama into standing in front of the camera, and then have Basil use his delicate little paw to hit the shutter button. So, it may be a little blurry….

    And now – the insanity is beginning already. Got a panicky call from CLL – the midday person can’t be there, and they want Mama to come in for a double shift. She is supposed to be there for the evening shift and had plans to play with clay all day until its time to go.

    So Mama said, so sorry, but with appointments already scheduled for the day, she can’t possible get there that far ahead of time.
    (Mama calls is lying through her teeth – we don’t understand – she was smiling when she was talking…no gritted teeth that we could see)

  16. Melanie
    11:06 am on January 10th, 2012

    Great for Golinka! That’s the way to stick up for your clay. Or stick to your clay or something like that.

    Calling for Sunny skies today. Then why am I seeing Lake effect snow?

  17. Snowhook Bella
    11:14 am on January 10th, 2012

    I’m glad you like the surprise! Thank you to Spence for agreeing to announce it.

    I’m heading to the airport. I will be home this evening. I can’t wait to see the giant and the dogs.

    Rose: I’m sure I can work something out with Belle Starr. She loves the camera.

  18. dawson
    11:22 am on January 10th, 2012

    Hey Buddy and Oreo: I love Oreo’s brown eyebrow. That’s going to be hard to resist when he raises it while asking politely.

    I’ll send a photo. I want to see the Iditarod trail with Mollypop.

    Wolfie: Hunger Games! That’s the book that A Catty Librarian was reading when I saw her. She raved about it. “Oh, it’s at the library”, she said confidently, when I said I was going to check if they had it. Thanks for the reminder.

    T&G: Wow! CL has started already. She will be begging soon.

  19. BearSpiritDog
    11:27 am on January 10th, 2012

    Plunders on the trail with AJ and the team? What an honor to be running (virtually) alongside Whitey-Lance and the rest. Thank you Rebecca & AJ this is going to be the best race ever!!!

  20. dawson
    11:31 am on January 10th, 2012

    Let me revise that:
    I want to see the Iditarod trail with Mollypop and the rest of the Plunderers! WhooooHoooo!

  21. Melanie
    11:32 am on January 10th, 2012

    Hey, if he gets snowbound, he can use us for kindling!

  22. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:44 am on January 10th, 2012

    Employment!….There’s like a zillion people looking for jobs….grunt!…Why doesn’t that %&^%&% Crazy &^&^@#@^& Lady hire someone else?….sniff! …Geeze I’m in a bad mood today!….grump!

  23. Mollypop's Mom
    11:47 am on January 10th, 2012

    I’ve decided against sending Mollypop’s collar for the Iditarod, but will send the tag from her dress collar. That collar got very little use. I won’t mind if the tag gets lost along the trail either, since that’s very special too.

  24. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:51 am on January 10th, 2012

    Riddance!…. Can I vacuum-seal Beau and send him along too….grump!…He’s been walking on thin ice anyways, so the trail will be just the place for him…grumble!

  25. Mollypop's Mom
    12:12 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Golinka – Hooray for you! You have your family’s support and encouragement to follow your passion. Go for it.

    As for that Crazy Lady, you gave her more than the standard two weeks’ notice. She has to face reality for once and the sooner the better. Was she planning to run you right into the ground?

  26. OleyHowlers
    12:34 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Hello everybody. What a fabulous offer from Rebecca and AJ. We are twirling, just thinking about joining AJ, Whitey-Lance, and the team on that sled! We are hoping that one of the Christmas photos our aunt took of all of us turns out, so there would just be one picture. Mom & Pop were in those too, and Mom says she doesn’t want her picture sent, but those are the only pictures taken of all 4 of us.

    Pop read all of The Hunger Games books, and really loved them. They were recommended to him by our 12-yr old friend. She and Pop are now looking forward to the movie.

    Bee, we would also love to see Brandy’s picture.

  27. Tupper and Gilly
    12:37 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Well, that is kinda why we call her the Crazy Lady….

    Hey – did you all hear about the dog rescued off the Florida Keys? Another story that proves how the Nation Within will find a way to survive!

  28. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    12:38 pm on January 10th, 2012

    We didn’t havea chance last night to offer our congratulations to Golinka for standing up for what’s right. Sanity will prevail!!!

    Mollypop’s mom — re your comment from Sunday about David Rosenfelt. Glad that you are enjoying him so much; he is definitely one of our favoritemost authors (after PA/SQ of course). In addition to about eight Andy Carpenter/Tara books, he has also written three stand-alone thrillers that are quite good as well. And his personal story is quite interesting too. He and his wife basically run a rescue operation in their home for golden retrievers, with up to 25 goldens living with them at any one time. He also set up a foundation called the Tara Foundation (named after Tara, their first golden, who also happense to be the co-protagonist in the Andy Carpenter series) which is dedicated to golden retriever rescue.

  29. Tupper and Gilly
    12:47 pm on January 10th, 2012

    We need to start writing all these books down. Always looking for good mysteries, but not gory/slasher type. So we need to find the beginning of the Jack Reacher series, and now Wookie’s recommendation of the Andy Carpenter/Tara series. After all, how can a book featuring Golden Retrievers be gory?

  30. Barb & Maggie
    12:51 pm on January 10th, 2012

    We also think AJ’s and Rebecca’s offer is wonderful. And Bee, we want to see a picture of Brandy too. Was he black & tan or red? We have been picturing hin as black & tan.

    Guess what I just did! Barb went to the store and bought a sirloin tip roast and had it ground by the butcher. She is trying to eat more lean and healthy. Well, bet you know what is coming next….she made two little patties and then came to the computer to catch up on the blog before making lunch. I can’t help it if she is a slow learner and leaves stuff on the counter. So why am I on her s**t list?

  31. OleyHowlers
    12:59 pm on January 10th, 2012

    High 4, Magster! You go girl!

  32. Mollypop's Mom
    1:00 pm on January 10th, 2012

    MagPie – It looks you are eating lean and healthy. Ha ha.

  33. Snowhook Bella
    1:03 pm on January 10th, 2012

    B&M: what could be more lean than eating nothing at all?

  34. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:08 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Diet!…heh!snort!…I too enjoy helping others diet but I have to rely on them leaving something on the cawfee table…chuffle!

  35. Mollypop's Mom
    1:09 pm on January 10th, 2012

    I’m off to Sam’s now. I have a doctor’s appointment there tomorrow morning at – get this – 6:15 a.m. I will be grumpy tomorrow.

  36. Barb & Maggie
    1:25 pm on January 10th, 2012

    MPM, Why so early? I didn’t even know doctors had office hours that early!

    Lucky for me I didn’t eat ALL the ground sirloin, just those two little bitty patties. Otherwise I might be banished to the front porch for the afternoon!

    Melanie asked about the new bicycle shop. With this mild weather, it is doing quite well for January. They took in $2,000 on Saturday which was amazing. If anyone is interested, you can Google The Bike Haven, McHenry Il, and it will give you their website. They both have great personalities which helps business, and Josh’s ADHD is finally paying off!

    Before Christmas, mom went to a craft fair and bought a loaf of pumpkin bread. Gus Puppy loved every single crumb. He ate the whole darn thing. Not to be deterred, mom bought herself another loaf a week later. Gus said that it was even better than the first. To this day, mom still hasn’t figured out how he was able to reach the breads. They were put way up high, but apparently not high enough. Mom finally started hiding things in the microwave.

  38. Melanie
    1:32 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Way to go MagPie!

    I also understand about finding the best fit for ADHD personalities. snicker

    Must go see those sites.

  39. Melanie
    1:41 pm on January 10th, 2012

    What a sweetheart dog and the guy in the kayak was a sweetheart too.

    MagPie, tell your mom that the bike website looks fantastic. Love how they also rent.

  40. B.Stover
    1:52 pm on January 10th, 2012

    This is my favorite picture of Brandy. He’s looking at a chew-ezz that I’m holding and waiting for me to say he can have it. He hated having his picture taken.

  41. B.Stover
    1:53 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Here is Brandy in action.

  42. C.Harris

    I’ve been cold ever since I returned from Kentucky and it is supposed to hit -55 this weekend. Right now we are “warm” but the temperature is to start droping on Thursday. Here is a cool photo of an Alaskan glacier.

  43. dawson
    2:29 pm on January 10th, 2012

    C.Harris: I wonder what you mean by “warm”. I got a chill reading your post and looking at that huge glacier.

  44. Tupper and Gilly
    2:58 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Bee- what a glorious dog! We always thought the look of Dobies was more regal than menacing.
    Isn’t if funny how some dogs love to have their picture taken and pose at the sight of a camera (Tupper) and others go into hiding (Gilly).

    and now…sigh…time to get ready for CLL.

    Hope to talk to you all tonight.

  45. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    3:11 pm on January 10th, 2012

    T&G — I think you will really like the Rosenfelt books a lot. The first one in the Andy Carpenter series (nine altogether with a tenth one due out this summer) is called Open and Shut (not absolutely necessary to read them in sequence, but it can help a bit), and they are all terrific. I will warn you, while very good, his stand-alone thrillers are a bit grittier, so you may not necessarily want to read them, but the Andy Carpenter series is really great.

  46. Melanie
    3:11 pm on January 10th, 2012

    B.Stover: Brandy was (and is) a beauty. Menacing . . . Grace did very well at the V*E*Ts today and when she came out a smaller dog decided that she was a threat. Grace wagged her tail. Owners and dogs can see size and muscular beauty and grace as a threat. sigh

    C.Harris: I thought that was small until I noticed the plane. Cool . . . -55 degrees, Burr.

  47. Rose
    4:38 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Oh, B, Brandy is beautiful. Very regal and majestic. You can just see the intelligence in his eyes.

  48. C.Harris
    4:50 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Dawson: warm is -3. It has been in the -20s, -30s and -40s for a while but we have a two-day break. The cold weather comes just in time for a 3-day weekend. Darn.

  49. BearSpiritDog
    5:54 pm on January 10th, 2012

    B: Brandy is a very Handsome & Regal looking member of the Nation Within. We have been looking forward to seeing him for a long time. Will you be posting his picture to FOC also?

    Wookie: The Rosenfelt books have been on our wish list at Amazon for some time now. Never thought of requesting them from the library…a good idea.

    C.Harris: Nana says when she was growing up -20 temps were not uncommon at this time of year. She remembers snow crunching underfoot and feeling the bitter cold even without a wind chill. We cannot even begin to imagine temperatures in the range you are describing.
    You just reminded us…Monday is a holiday…no mail delivery or banking.

  50. Rose
    5:55 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Signing off… The Prof and I are on our way to see TIN-TIN in 3D! 🙂

  51. B.Stover
    6:05 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Thank you. Brandy was a gem and my best friend. I still miss him.

  52. Barb & Maggie
    6:10 pm on January 10th, 2012

    We are going to put the Rosenfelt books on our list at the library. Have not read any of them.

    Brandy is beautiful He looks big! Kelly got a Dobie when she was a teenager and had her for about 12-13 years. She was a big softy.

  53. Melanie
    6:17 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Two things: YSAS has an extra role in P of I. He’s going to be riding a bike in the park. Thursday an audition for a commercial. Friday he’s either bar tending (for real) or filming in the Indie that was postponed in November.

    The second thing. Anyone out there have experience with asparagus beds? Thinking of putting one in. If so please SDD me.

  54. Masquers
    6:27 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Rose: Mom heard from her friend, who just took the grands, that TIN-TIN is very good in 3-D.
    Golinka: Good for you – sticking to your decision to leave the CL and her constant DRAMA behind. That song from long ago keeps running through my mind: “you just keep on using me til you’ve used me up”…used in a different context, but the words seem a description of CLL.
    Wolfie: The Hunger Games in also on The List. Is the movie already out, or due to come out soon?

  55. Melanie
    6:31 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Here’s a good article on the Knik200. Talks about the problems with the trackers, but doesn’t mention the giant by name.

  56. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    6:37 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Melanie — Check your SDD for some tips on asparagus (no pun intended) from my dad. Wookie

  57. Melanie
    6:40 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Here’s a picture taken by Robin Simms of the Knik200 finish.

  58. B.Stover
    6:49 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Bear: Excellent suggestion. I will put Brandy in FOC.

    Barb and Maggie: As you can see, Brandy was red and tan and he was big. He loved running with horses. He had a bit of white on his neck which disqualified him for showing or breeding. But I didn’t care about that. I took him from a horse groomer who was abusing him. He was about six months old when I took him.

  59. B.Stover
    6:55 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Wookie: I think you intended the pun which was very funny! I love puns.

  60. Melanie
    7:08 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Thanks Wöökie! Asparagus bed and dogs don’t mix. Got it!

  61. dawson
    7:43 pm on January 10th, 2012

    B.Stover: Brandy is a wonderful looking dog. Looks like he could run like the wind.
    Melanie: What is P of I? Good wishes to YSAS.
    Thanks for the updates and also…Staff has asparagus.

  62. Melanie
    7:46 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Person of Interest. Never seen it, have no idea what it’s about. It pays union.

    Snickering. You make it sound like she has some disease.

    Just made and ordered two calendars from Shutterfly. Was looking for a Newfoundland calendar, but as someone told me. My work was good use it. So I did!

  63. Melanie
    8:07 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Whew, I am out for the count. The Wolf Moon is beautiful again. Clouds drifting across it . . . HOOOOOOOWWWWLLLL.

    Wow, that felt good.


  64. Tupper and Gilly
    8:24 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Woooo Hoooooo – 0nly 11 more days to go!

    Bee – O Great Love of Puns – does your Sunday paper run the comic strip “Pearls Before Swine”? The writer is an inveterate punster who sets up a whole strip just for the last block holding the “pun”ch-line.

    CL’s memorable comment of the day: upon overhearing a member thank Mama for her help, CL said, “See – you’ll never leave – you would miss this too much.” This is after Mama had just reminded her that a February meeting was irrelevant asa she would no longer work there.

    We are taking bets that CL won’t even start to look for a new employee until the manure hits the air circulation devive (take that Mr.Moderator!). Anyone wanna take odds on that bet?

  65. Tupper and Gilly
    8:47 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Thanks again Wookie – we will look for those books!

  66. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:51 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Dawson!….I don’t believe Brandy can run like the wind anymore….sniff!…I’m guessing that guy is long gone…wuffle!…Long time ago my friend says she had a Doberman mix, mostly Doberman. She says Sasha was the best dog in the world right up there with Cassie the Butt Sniffing Dog….grunt!…Funny she never includes me in her list of Best Dawgs….grunt!…Beau will never make that list even if he does live to be 6 years old…heh!

    Mystery!…Solved. The Firm is a new show on TV…sniff!…We are watching the Premier of it On Demand…heh!…Thank goodness Tom Cruise is not anywhere to be seen…wheeze!

  67. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:55 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Alaska!….We heard on the news tonight that Alaska is getting hammered with snow…snort!….Isn’t Rebecca flying home today? I sure hope she doesn’t have any long lay-overs and AJ can pick her up at Anchorage okay….wuffle!…Why oh why does she insist on flying in snowstorms….wuffle!

  68. Barb & Maggie
    9:07 pm on January 10th, 2012

    We think CL has a bad case of denial. No, she won’t look till she has to and then she will cry and carry on and try to get you to stay longer.

  69. B.Stover
    9:10 pm on January 10th, 2012

    T&G: I usually read the NYTimes online but I’ll see if I can find that comic strip.

    Rio: Please let us know if the Firm is good. I may watch it On Demand also though not tonight.

  70. Sam
    9:14 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Golinka, I fear you will have many, too too many phone calls from CL well into February. She might actually have to work.

  71. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:17 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Firm!….So far so good…sniff!… Good dialog. Good acting…sniff!….Clarkson should get a part on this show if it continues to be good.….snuffle! …The weak link so far is the secretary…grunt!

  72. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:26 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Quitting!….I almost believe that Stinky Mama is really going to give Crazy Lady up Cold Turkey starting Feb. 1st…heh!….Almost! That bad habit might still have a hold on her past her quitting date. She might buckle during the extreme chaos because she feels “sorry” for the customers….chuffle!

  73. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:44 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Addicted! …. I do have to say for the blog record that her and I are addicted to Downton Abbey….snort!….Love the characters, love the English countryside and estate, love Maggie Smith, always!…heh! …That little lady is amazing. She just never stops! Thank dawg!…snorkel! …The character who plays Thomas is chilling, to say the least…wheeze!

  74. Masquers
    9:51 pm on January 10th, 2012

    Rio: We will try to watch the 2 hour premiere of the Firm. It does look like it would be very good as a series.

    T&G: That CL will wait until after you are gone to start looking for your replacement is a given. You must harden your heart and not give in to her ridiculous demands. Your wonderful family supports you as do the Plunderers. Go in peace and never look back.

    We all will be relieved to hear Rebecca check in this evening with the good news she is safe at home with AJ and the Pack.

  75. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Maskers!….Hey pal, is it just you and me tonight?…snort!….I’m trying to stay up and wait for Rebecca to check in, but I doubt I will make it that long …grunt! … Beau has been making bedtime a fiasco lately and we’ve been having to go up earlier than usual to sort things out…grump!…. So I hope you have your saxophone and are ready to serenade all the late-night posters at least till we know Rebecca is home safe and sound …heh! …She’s coming home to all that snow and cold….brrrrr!shudder! …And 40 plus guys who have missed her terribly!….Wooooo!

    Yeah, Rio, we agree, Golinka might have a hard time sticking to her Feb. 1st date. She is too nice.

    Barb wants to watch Parenthood, so will be back tomorrow morning.

    Night all.

    Rio: Just back from watching someone here trying to put together a kitchen utility cart. She was waiting for help, but has decided she can do it faster herself. We’ll see. It’s rather amusing to watch I must say. Why she has picked this time of night to start this project is beyond me.

    That’s a good suggestion, Rio. Maybe I will play a couple of tunes to take our minds off the iPaw looking for updates. Hopefully, Bella will check in soon.

    Trouble!…Beau decided he wanted to come downstairs and sit in the Easy!Down!Boy! chair with my friend….grunt!…. Well once he was up there he got all pissy and had that weird look in his bugged out eyes that says, “I’m Pissed and I’m Not Gonna take it Anymore!!!”….grunt!…All this while she is petting and scratching him…dammit! … Tonight it was a “Bite Me” show-down and my friend seemed to Winnit because he is still in her lap and sleeping soundly…grump! ….This whole thing with him pisses me off to no end, let me tell you what!!! …grumble! …She thinks patience and much time, and understanding will make him a better guy…sniff!…I think a good chomp right in the throat in the main artery will do the same thing quicker.…grump! …If he hurts her, I’m all over him. Just a warning and he knows it…heh!heh!

    Isn’t he usually in his cold hard bed snoring away by now?

    I’m still up because the race has got me all discombobulated. I’ve been sleeping in and staying up past my usual early bedtime. I’m going to watch Parenthood also.

    Time!….Just for the record it has been 1 day short of 2 months since Beau was dropped off here in my house with all his stuff…sniff!… It feels like a life-time ago…grumble!

    Barb and Maggie – Tupper and Gilly read your comment that Mama is “too nice” and they are still rolling around on the floor laughing their tail-less little butts off.
    The Pink BullDozer NICE???
    Well, she tries to be nice to those who are nice to her, but woe betide the ones who truly piss her off.
    (We think our Dad is rather saintly – you should see what HE puts up with. giggle)

    Critique!….The Firm is definitely worth watching…snort!… We have to go upstairs to bed now because of You-Know-Who!…grunt!…If he doesn’t straighten out by Baseball Season he will be history big-time…heh!heh!….I can’t wait!

    Rebecca!…I sure hope you make it home safely…sniff!….I will be saying Pug Prayers for you tonight…wuffle!…Please check-in with Maskers when you can. He will be up serenading all the late-night posters and taking donations in that little can beside his saxophone case…sniffle!

    Same here Dawson…discombobulated…heh, I love that work!

    Herbs: The Plunderers know your mama to be a kind, loving, caring person. It is good to know she can also kick some A– if she needs to. We have every confidence she will not fall for any shenanigans from the CL.

    My sister, A Catty Librarian, says her daughter turned her on to the Hunger Games. She says they are good books. I am interested in reading it also now that they have talked about it.

    T&G. Can’t take that bet. That IS what is going to happen. Denial is not just a river.

    Dawson, I have a picture of us three from your eldest’s wedding. Should I send in one picture for all of us?

    Staff: That would be good. Unless all the cats want to go.
    Rio: Sounds like your friend is making some headway with Beau and the biting.

    Melanie, Person of Interest is absolutely the best new show this season. Mom and Dad have been watching it from the beginning and it it GREAT!! So glad YSAS will be on it!

    Get home safe, Rebecca!

    You go girl, Golinka !! Bye, Bye CLL!!!

    Dawson, I am just thinking about how much weight all the pictures will add. Every ounce, every gram counts in that sled. I am worried we will slip AJ (the giant) over the limit and it will slow him and the dogs down.

    Anyway Alice and Abbie said no way are they letting those dogs see their pictures. Heh. Something about not being lunch. I don’t know for sure.

    Staff – we just wish Denial was full of de crocodiles.
    (hope your doc appointment went well)

    Bella – after you finish smooching all those adorable furry faces (AJ’s included) – be sure to stop by the blog and let us know you are home.

    And thanks for all the support Plunderers. One reason Mama let us announce her “retirement” was so she wouldn’t be tempted to go back and say ok to CL. Are you kidding? Can you imagine what Rio would say?? Our poor little ears…..giggle

    Good night all.
