    Really? I’m first??

    Melanie, how delightful and great to see the Australian covers there!

    Hi one and all, apologies as always for being absent. I wanted to let you know that my lovely Cricket crossed the bridge earlier this week. Here’s a picture taken just a few months ago. Eleven years old and so beautiful.

    LizF: Cricket…what a wonderful dog! Thanks for posting that picture. You’re right, the beauty still shines through. We will miss our little Cricket. RIP. (sob)

    Melanie: That is a very nice digital quilt frame for our favorite picture of OFA and his favorite dogs.

    Gooood morning, eeryone! Hey to Liz and sad news about Cricket, Melanie, your e-quilt is fantastic! Morning, Rose, stay cool. Here the workmen replacing soffits etc. showed up at 7:15 and WE let them know about it. We are currently guarding our peeps.

    Weather wise have a wicked Wednesday.

    Good morning! Hi Liz!!! We are so sorry to hear of you being left without beautiful Cricket, but we know Cricket is among many many friends up there on the other side of the Bridge.

    Nice digital quilt.

    We never got to post yesterday, because we were so busy busy busy. Mom wanted us to come with her on her evening ride, and after that, we all just collapsed under the fan on the front porch. So here is another name we are curious about from the C&B books: We liked everybody’s suggestions for next month’s Whats in a Name, and here is another: Janie, the kind and strong groomer.

    Liz: I did not look at your post carefully enough. I am deeply saddened to hear that your beloved Cricket has passed. Cricket has many friends waiting at the bridge gates. Remember, Cricket will forever be in your heart. What a beautiful picture. sob sob sob

    Hey LizF: I’m thinking of you and that beautiful Cricket of yours. That makes me think of my “Dorg” back home and that makes me think of you and Cricket. It’s a lovely circle. Peace on you.

    I wonder how Beau is doing. He has not been on this here blog since he got hurt.

    HRH, B: Where are you and Charlie off to today?

  12. B. Stover
    9:37 am on July 17th, 2013

    How cool! Good work Melanie. (Where did you find all of the covers?)

    I’m so sorry about Cricket Liz but it’s very good to hear from you.

    Charlie and I are off to the Alps today. Neither of us have ever been there before.

    Good morning all.

    Thank you all, lovely thoughts.

    Bedtime. Sleep well/have a good day. G’day Staff!

    G’Night!…Liz. Very sorry to hear about Cricket. She had a good life I bet…sniffle!

    9:43 am on July 17th, 2013

    Liz, so sorry to hear about your beloved Cricket. She was a lucky girl to get to spend her time on earth with you.
    We think about you everytime we pull out our Dishlicker cookbook. We could never have done it without you.

    Melanie, we love your digital quilt.

    Today we have a company coming to put custom window well covers on. Barb is afraid I will jump thru the cheap plastic ones if a ground squirrel lands in one. I don’t know why she thinks that, when I always exhibit complete self control.

    We already did our walk around the block at 7:30, due to the high temps today. Heat index is supposed to hit 105. Yikes!

  17. Macy
    9:44 am on July 17th, 2013

    Good morning all. Liz, please add our loving thoughts for you on your loss.

    Mom has been working on her cemetery project for a while now. She came across one named Bush Family Cemetery in Crawford. Turns out it is the resting place of Barney the dog and his various canine relatives.

    Our cool weather is starting to go away. By the end of the week we will be sweltering with the rest of you.

  18. Barb & Maggie
    9:47 am on July 17th, 2013

    Forgot to mention that David Rosenfelt has two books coming out this month. We already knew about Unleashed, the newest Andy Carpenter book. He has another one called Dogtripping, which cronicles his trip across the US to relocate in the northeast. He and his wife relocated with 25 Golden Retrievers and 11 human volunteers.

  19. Herd of Hounds
    9:48 am on July 17th, 2013

    Macy, the cemetery you mentioned is fascinating! Are there headstones? Do they allow rubbings?

  20. Barb & Maggie
    9:49 am on July 17th, 2013

    Macy, we have heard that in Alabama there are cemeteries just for coonhounds.

  21. Barb & Maggie
    9:55 am on July 17th, 2013

    Macy, Isn’t Former Pres. Bush from Crawford County? Does the Bush Family Cemetery have any connection to his family?

  22. Tupper and Gilly
    9:55 am on July 17th, 2013

    Morning all. Good evening Liz. Thank you for all you did for your lovely Cricket in this life. She was a happy girl, and will always be a part of your heart.

    Good to hear that Scout is being seen quite a bit. Bet she is trying to find home – come on Scout – you can do it.

    Melanie – yes, we are as impressed as ever with your technical skills. What a fun project.

    Bee and Charlie – please send boxes of snow from the Alps. We will just lay in it. hot hot hot hot hot.

    Would you believe Mama is heading back to her work table? Sheesh – will she ever stop?

    And just for those of you who didn’t go back and read last night’s late entries – shoe!

  23. Princess Sam
    9:55 am on July 17th, 2013

    Liz, so sorry about Cricket. Such a lovely picture.

  24. Herd of Hounds

    T&G: Mama won’t stop heading for the work table even if he-double hockey sticks freezes over,

    10:06 am on July 17th, 2013

    Liz — great to hear from you although the news about Cricket is very sad. I know that Cricket had a great life with you and is with good company now across the bridge.

    Melanie — just magnificent. What else can one say?

    As regards names, there is one other name, especially for the old timers on the blog, that could create great interest, although it may be treading on some sensitive ground — that name being Astrid. Remember her?

  26. Melanie
    10:15 am on July 17th, 2013

    LizF, G’Day Mate! Except it’s night now where you are. Cricket is beautiful. She will always be beautiful.

    I needed to have some fun. I started looking at the images for Chet and Bernie books and was surprised at how many there were of them. I went on a hunt! Took me three days (not all at once) to find them. Then I placed them in a “quilt”. Can’t sew quilts. Would drive me nuts. I can, on the other paw, have a great time photoshopping.

    Spence didn’t know I was doing this. I did it just to do it. What fun. Hazy, Hot, and Humid outside? Computer inside.

    Ummm, Riö? You did say that I had some extra time to get things done.

    Now I have to pick up some meds.

    Staff, I am glad there have been some Scout sightings. May she get home soon.

  27. B. Stover
    10:24 am on July 17th, 2013

    I remember Astrid. I still have the outline grid that someone posted on the blog.

  28. Gus & BooBear
    10:44 am on July 17th, 2013

    Liz, how sad about Cricket. We are so sorry to hear that. That is a wonderful picture of her. She looks so happy.

    Melanie, LOVE the virtual quilt! You really are a very talented family.

    Wookie’s Dad, No, please NOT Astrid! Never did like that short story and wasn’t sorry it faded away. (Sorry, SQ).

  29. Rose
    10:55 am on July 17th, 2013

    HRH, B: Will you send me some Swiss chocolates? I hope you both are prepared for the snow. Do you both have booties?

    Wookie’s Dad: Grizz and I just went to a multi-media lecture on the Beatles. Stu Sutcliff’s girlfriend was named Astrid. Maybe OFA is a fan?

  30. Herd of Hounds
    10:58 am on July 17th, 2013

    HRH B: just saw an alpine “bridge” one walks across over 1,000 feet up and with open work flooring. Not for the faint of heart…be careful!

  31. B. Stover
    11:09 am on July 17th, 2013

    I forgot to say that Charlie and I are, of course, reading Shelley’s poem, “Mont Blanc.”

  32. B. Stover
    11:12 am on July 17th, 2013

    Charlie and I chose Mont Blanc for the cold weather. We will be sending back snow and Swiss chocolates.

  33. O'Howlers
    11:14 am on July 17th, 2013

    Rose, there is no snow in the Alps this time of year. We happen to know that because we have watched The Sound of Music many many times. 🙂

  34. Mollypop's Mom
    11:27 am on July 17th, 2013

    Liz – Lovely picture of your dear Cricket. She will be in your heart forever. I also think of you every time I use our Dishlicker’s cookbook.

    Melanie – The newest quilt is a work of art! Too bad you got in trouble with Rio.

  35. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:29 am on July 17th, 2013


    Ohhh Melanie!… I may have said there was no rush only because I thought you were sick as a dawg…grunt!…Now I find out you’ve been playing around having a great time for the last 3 days with nary a thought towards my request…sniff!

    Just posted by our niece!

    After 5 long days and 5 long nights, Scouter is home safe and sound! She was spotted in a field along Mullan Rd. by Jani Zirbel from Animal Blessings Pet Hospital ! Thanks to Jani’s tip, we found little scouter laying down in a field, a little weary and timid after so many days on her own. She warmed up to her bestie Boots right away, and the rest is history! THANKS ALL FOR YOUR HELP! Especially Andrea, Scott, and Mary Drew for searching high and low with us! Also, thank you Finding Bella Dog for helping spread the word!”

    12:04 pm on July 17th, 2013

    Scout and Christy reunite…sniff sniff sniff.

    Dear Liz, I am so sorry to hear of your loss of Cricket. She was sure a sweet and good looking dog. I know all her pains are gone now and she is with a huge host of others from our group who have gone over the bridge. They will take care of her and get her all comfy there.

  38. O'Howlers
    12:07 pm on July 17th, 2013

    Oh Staff, we just knew Scout was going to have a good outcome! We are so happy happy happy…we can’t stop twirling!!!!!

    12:08 pm on July 17th, 2013

    Riö, check your SDD and stop with the Poor Pug . .

    I will be shutting off my work computer tonight. Tomorrow I get ready for my trip. Friday is drive day. Saturday is fun day. Sunday I come home. Needless to say, I will have my iPaw ready to update you, but not to do any work.

    (This includes being the Momager) ((BTW, YSAS is working his patootie off being a stand in for the bad guy in the movie. He’s the one who stands out in the heat – and NYC is brutal right now – while the star sits in his trailer. The camera angle shots and the lighting is fixed, YSAS steps out and star come in. We’re talking over 12 hour days here. Thank goodness for unions!))

    Now I need to go and see if I can fix the pool pump.

  42. Rose
    12:09 pm on July 17th, 2013

    Howlers, T&G wanted the snow. I wanted something much more important, chocolates. I thought perhaps booties would protect Charlie’s feet from rocks and such. HRH, B too.

    Scout Home!!! We were Very worried with the Hot temperatures. Thank Dog she is home where it is Cool.

    Liz: Cricket, who is always in your Heart, has been welcomed over the Bridge. She is running Pain Free with her many Friends.

    Melanie: Love the Digital Quilt!

    1:39 pm on July 17th, 2013

    Liz, We are so sorry to learn of Cricket’s passing. We know you miss her. Thank you for the beautiful picture.

    There is some sniffing going on here over the loss of Cricket and the finding of Scout. We are so thankful Scout has been returned to her family.

  53. Herd of Hounds
    1:51 pm on July 17th, 2013

    OFA posted “Something Lovely” and lovely things today include Cricket, Scout going home, Melanie’s quilt. How did he know?

  54. Siber-H
    1:52 pm on July 17th, 2013

    Melanie, Love all the book covers and the picture of Spence and his girls!!

    Stover, We didn’t know Shelly wrote a poem about Mont Blanc. We will look it up.
    In case you and Charlie want to climb to the top of it, the trail is nothing more than a long hard slog to the top. No technical skills are required, but it is often closed because the ice and snow are melting on it…climate change.
    Mont Blanc was the first of the famous Alps to be climbed.

  55. B. Stover
    2:10 pm on July 17th, 2013

    Here’s a link that has Shelley’s “Mont Blanc.” It also includes “Ode to the West Wind,” one of my favorites.

    Masquers: LOL!

    2:14 pm on July 17th, 2013

    Siber, I am so sorry to say I am flummuxed. Even I have to admit that those chickies are sort of cute. And it is so dang hot here that it just doesn’t seem worth the energy it would take to dig way way down below the wood that man put way down underground. Besides, I really hate to see my mom cry. Please do not think to badly of me. Maybe if you could come for a visit, you and I could put our heads together…

  57. Siber-H
    2:25 pm on July 17th, 2013

    Stover, Thank You!!

    Dima, It is okay. We are still buddies. I understand.
    (whispering) Mom has noticed I kinda like Roadrunners and some of them seem to like dogs.

    Moving!….I just got a very long text from my friend. She says they are making her move to a cubicle with a Pillar or Beam in it….grunt!…What? Three people have to move and she is one of them. But they are sticking her in the smallest spot with the big ole beam innit…grump!…The gal who sits there now gave her the following note….heh!

    Preparing For Your Move

    Noise!…It will be better than where she sits right now…grunt!…You wouldn’t believe the crap she has to put up with everyday…sniff!…No wonder she is so grumpy when she gets home at night…heh!heh!

    3:57 pm on July 17th, 2013

    Siber-Softies. Heh Heh !

    One of our horses has a post in his stall. We thought that would be the “bad” stall. Turns out whichever horse gets that stall loves the post! Rio, tell your friend to use that pillar as her scratching post. That’s what the horses do.

    Barb, Mom really loves Blessings.

    You guys are funny today.

    Whew. Heat index over 100.

    Pool pump now fixed. Some of the connections were corroded. I used cokecola and a toothbrush, waited til it dried, tried it again, AND IT WORKED!

    I thought I was grand. The universe decided to make me humble again. I have a wasp sting.

    Going to find some ice, and elevate my arm.

    That cokecola thing is more deep south I think. Around here we just say “y’all want a coke? What kind? Dr. Pepper? ok.”

    Oh, and cool quilt Melanie.

    I do not think the Bush family cemetery is open to the public, what with it being on their ranch. Not sure what kind of head stone Barney has.

    Whaaa? What is that post above me?

    Oleys, I am glad your mom likes Blessings. Barb loved it. The main character was one Barb totally identified with (sorry Bee).

    Barb just picked up the book Wookie’s Dad recommended – Smoky Mountain Tracks, a Raine Stockton mystery. This is the first in the series and she just started it, but already knows she wants to read the whole series. Anyone else read yhem? This one was written in 2006, so hopefully there are several more.

    Macy, Kelly’s BFF and college roomie was/is from Birmingham, Alabama. She used to say that coke thing. 7-Up, Dr. Pepper, Pepsi, they were all coke.

    Rio, hope your friend likes her new abode. The cologne bothers me a little. Isn’t she allergic to that kind of thing, or is that just Melanie?

    The yhem in the above post is supposed to be them.

    5:43 pm on July 17th, 2013

    HOH, Mom remembers when cokeacola was a word in use, and also “pop” for soda.

    Melanie, We are sorry you got stung by a wasp. Mom says, that hurts.

    Mollypop’s Mom, That is a puny mountain. I am looking out the window at one that is almost 11,000 feet. Rio’s Front Range is even higher.

    Melanie: Someone once told me that as soon as you get a sting, rub some Secret deodorant on it. I got a travel size Secret and tried it. It works. Lessens the pain and swelling considerably.

  81. Barb & Maggie
    6:30 pm on July 17th, 2013

    Wose, Same degree of hot here. It almost sucks the breath right out of you when you go outside. Barb was just watching the woman across the stret mowing her lawn in this heat. Barb would have a heat stroke or a heart attack if she did that! It will last one more day, tomorrow will be the worst, and then a cooling trend.

    Around here, the two leggeds are living on tossed salad and fruit salad. We are NOT amused. Kats do not eat tomatoes. Or melon. Bleck.
    Why can’t they make some steaks or fried chicken? Have they no decency?

    Thanks all for the remedies for wasp stings. The swelling has gone down, and it doesn’t itch. Not being able to take antihistimes can be a bummer.

    I lived in Tidewater rural VA for 22 years. I am still not considered a Southern gal. I did retain part of the accent, but the cokecola was me figuring Mike Baker woulddn’t let me say the first part. Snicker. . Over thought myself there.

    TTFN and G’Day Liz!

    Kats!…It’s not really a pole per say…sniff!…It is a very large square beam or pillar. She says she will take a photo at some point and post it….snort!…It is the ONLY cube in the whole office building that ended up this way as far as she knows….chorkel!…So it is very unique and everyone knows about it…heh!heh!….That is why the person who resides there now is a “celebrity” in her own mind…grunt!…She said my friend would appreciate the Pillar (privacy galore)…snort!

    Promotion!…So the short answer is “Yes”!…snort!…Compared to where she sits now, this will be great, except for the cologne spraying that goes on next door…sniff!…This will have to stop as she is allergic to perfumy stuff…grunt!

    Rio – Tell your friend congrats.

    And tell her to cover the pole with carpeting and it will make a great scratching post.

    G’night all.
    G’day Liz
