    Pop Quiz! Shudder . . As soon as my brain would hear THAT, any knowledge in my head froze and refused to appear. Hmmm . . Maybe that was why I enjoyed giving them when I was a teacher. Payback time!

    Good morning All. The cold front is trying to move through. Thunderstorms and showers for today. In between those times, I will be vacuuming the pool. About time to close it.

    Congratulations to the person who won the Pop Qiuz. You look very happy.

    I’m enjoying “Sound” (and I’m still reading it slowly).

    Wonder what the quiz question was.

    Good morning all.

    Gooood morning, everyone! Guess Annie was right, “The sun will come up, tomorrow”. Looks like a good time was had in KY. Congrats. We here are going to put one paw in front of the other today and continue. We will probably climb under the quilt for a bit and lurk. We’ll keep Darah off the ipaw until later. Looking for boomers and showers here, too, but close to 90 ๐Ÿ™

    Have a Tummy Rubber Thursday ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yesterday’s temperatures broke all records here in Seattle. What a glorious summer we’ve had! Can autumn be far behind? Who said that? I want the balminess to continue right through October.
    Heading due south later today…returning much later on Friday after meeting someone very special…get that passport out. WhoooHooo!!!

    Good morning all. Maybe that was Mary. Nice-looking bookstore.

    HOH, thinking of you. Someone’s red tail is flying above the clouds now.

    CHobbit, thinking closing paper thoughts for you.

    Newbies, I’m a cross-eyed Siamese bluepoint cat who is better at lurking than posting. Welcome all and thanks to everyone who supported Snowhook’s auction. Let’s keep doing it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Safe journeys, Spence.

    We are hot,hot,hot here again, but expect fall-like temperatures for the weekend.

    Masquers, I forgot to mention I loved your photo of the Space Needle. I have the Lego model on my desk.

    Worrit about Siber-H, Rio, and Pepper with all that rain. Stay safe youse guys.

    Thinking about Beau and his friend too.

    Lovely sentiments, Blukat. Adding our positive thoughts to all you expressed.
    B: Nicely quoted. The hope of an early spring amidst winter’s flurries.

    An Ode? Naw, a lymrick . .

    As I sit in my house in the Hills
    Fog rises up from long ago stills
    Though now it is hot
    Cold is not forgot
    We’ll need a dram to ward off the chills.

    . . snicker

    Morning all and

    BIG thunderstorms last night. Lightening on the ocean is incredible. More storms later on, but for now, it’s time to hit the beach

  15. Barb & Maggie
    9:34 am on September 12th, 2013

    Thank you for the birthday wishes for Barb, both here and on F.B. Started celebrating with Josh, Jess and the kids last night at a little Italian restaurant in town. Sort of non-descript from the outside, but what a wonderful surprise inside. All pastas were homemade and the food was outstanding.

    Now Kelly is coming for lunch, and bringing our houseguest, LuLu. Another lunch or dinner this weekend with Kelly’s family and Shannon. Might as well make the most of turning even older!

  16. Rose
    9:35 am on September 12th, 2013

    Happiest of birthdays to you Barb! May your day be filled with love and every good thing!

    10:24 am on September 12th, 2013

    Happy B-day Barb, here too.

    Somebody look as mom’s post from late last night to see if you have any advice.

    Grrrr the yard guys came again today. They were only supposed to come once, last week. I REALLY hope that check doesn’t bounce before dad can transfer the funds. It has just been too dam hot for him to mow. I barked and barked to tell mom to get up and stop them, but all I got for my trouble was yelled at. Right now everybody but me and Holly are barking their heads off at the weed wackers. Mom is considering dog stew for dinner.

  18. BooBear
    10:30 am on September 12th, 2013

    Happy Birthday, Barb!! Enjoy the extra days celebrating.

    Oooh, Macy’s Mom!!! Come north to Alaska with the rest of us!!! Mom doesn’t know how to redeem miles, but I’m sure others can help you out. Mom and Dad just had to pay, pay, pay!!!

    Newbies, I am a small, rotund yellow tabby who until just a few weeks ago posted with my brother, Gus, who recently crossed the rainbow bridge. We have been on the blog almost from the beginning (but after Staff and Debbie LM and possibly Prof B.) Mom is not as creative or as knowledgeable as many on this blog, but no one holds it against her. She and Dad are part of the Plunderer group going North to Alaska to see the Snowhook team start the Iditarod.

    Mom has not had the great fortune of retiring yet, so she often won’t let me on the computer until late at night. Sometimes, I don’t post, but I always read and love to find out what is going on with everyone else. We live in the Houston area of Texas where we have 2 seasons—Summer and Christmas!! It is always hot.

    Oh, and Mom is involved in cat rescue so I have a lot of 4 legged brothers and sisters. She really wants a dog, too, but Dad says no.

    Fingers and paws crossed for C. Hobbit on her offer. One thing we learned after a LONG time on the market, is it is better to try to work with an existing offer if at all possible.

    Macy, don’t know much about redeeming miles, but believe you have to use them with the airling where they have accumulated. Is that right? Barb has some friends in Kentucky who are offering her a free airline ticket to come visit them. She has to use Southwest Airlines, since that is where the guy has accumulated his miles.

  20. Herd of Hounds
    11:08 am on September 12th, 2013

    B&M: This is for Barb…la, la, la…Whoo hoo, yodel, howl, squak! Whoo hoo, yodel, howl, squak! Whoo hoo to Barb. Whoo hoo, yodel , howl, squak! The HOH and POP have been practicing.
    Bluekat: TY for that image of Jocko. He could never fly in this world. He had a genetic something which caused his feather shafts to grow in square sometimes…very painful and he’d pluck them ๐Ÿ™

  21. Staff
    11:12 am on September 12th, 2013

    Good good good luck CHobbit. Finger toes and eyes crossed here.

  22. SnowBella
    11:15 am on September 12th, 2013

    HOH: I have no doubt those square feathers are helping him fly free on the other side of the Bridge. Tenzing is waiting for you under the quilt. He has snacks. Today’s menu is Slim Jims.

    Macy: I only know how to use my frequent flyer miles. I log into my account and then when I book a flight it gives me the option to pay wiht a credit card or use miles. I don’t know if this helps much or not, but what I do know is Yeep! A Min-Pin coming north to Alaska!

    I’m waiting to board the plane for my third stop this week. It will be another very long day. AJ hit the road yesterday to pick up the rest of the dogs who have been working summer jobs. We should return home around the same time. I can’t wait. In the mean time a stray two-legged who quite literally showed up on our door step last winter—a story for another time—is helping us with the dogs. I call him Dog Driver Nick.

  23. Staff
    11:17 am on September 12th, 2013

    Melanie, Mr.Staff brought in the mail. I got the book. ๐Ÿ™‚ It looks fascinating. It is next on the reading list.

  24. O'Howlers
    11:35 am on September 12th, 2013

    Howdy, Chet, Spence, Admin, Plunderers, Newbies, and Lurkers!

    Barb’s Birthday! Have a great day and celebrate it all week. As for getting older, it sure beats the alternative!

    Macy’s Miles: We can’t help here as our ‘rents never fly anywhere, except for that one trip to Seattle in May, and another to Denver 5 years ago. And we second Bella’s YEEP!!!!! You are maybe going to Alaska which will be the ‘rents third time flying together!

    Hobbit’s House: good news, and we will send pawsitive vibes your way for a good deal to be worked out.

    How was that for alliteration? Is that the correct term, Prof Bee?

  25. SnowBella
    11:35 am on September 12th, 2013

    B&M: Happy birthday!

    CHH: We here are hoping for the best and sendin postive thoughts. We can wait to be almost neighbors. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. Siber-H
    11:41 am on September 12th, 2013

    Nice bookstore and good photo of Spence.

    Happy Birthday, Barb!

    C.Hobbit, All paws crossed. I hope this is it!!!

    Rose, I am on high ground and my dog park is on even higher ground. I don’t know about Rio and the farm where he is vacationing. We have been watching the news about the flooding in Colorado. I don’t have anything to worry about except getting wet when I go outside. Mom told me to stop griping about that. I will not.
    We don’t even have to deal with mud because the topsoil is mostly sand.
    Thank you for your concern.

  27. Herd of Hounds
    11:48 am on September 12th, 2013

    CHH: We will even cross our eyes if it will help.
    Snow Bella: TY and we will probably climb back under the quilt again. Oh, think mom has some turkey pepperoni hidden,shall we bring that?
    Melanie: We need to apologize for Darah the Dozer’s pushiness last night. We are trying to teach her moderation. HA, with a goofy newfie?
    Here’s hoping the Denver area storms allow OFA to arrive in good time and safely. AND remember the BofA commercial with the newf? Saw it on the weather channel day before yesterday.

  28. Rose
    12:19 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Siber-H, We both have something in common…when it rains, I hate getting wet! I am very happy to know that you are safe.

    Rebecca, Would this be Hnadler Nick, who taught Grizz how to mush?

    CHobbit, Sending pawsitive thoughts and keeping our fingers crossed here.

  29. Rose
    12:20 pm on September 12th, 2013

    RIO! Check in when you can. I’m worrit about youse.

  30. B. Stover
    12:24 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Howlers: Yes, “alliteration” is the term.

  31. Herd of Hounds
    12:37 pm on September 12th, 2013

    HRH B: Several successive similar terms. OK?

  32. B. Stover
    12:46 pm on September 12th, 2013

    HOH: Okay. Actually there’s an example of alliteration that I love from one of the Harry Potter films, Goblet of Fire. Two other schools are visiting Hogwarts and Prof. McGonagall tells the Hogwarts students that she doesn’t want them “behaving like a babbling, bumbling, band of baboons.” Fred and George try saying it five times faster.

  33. Herd of Hounds
    12:50 pm on September 12th, 2013

    HRH B: For that I almost…ALMOST wish I were still teaching. TY ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. Herd of Hounds
    12:55 pm on September 12th, 2013

    HRHB: Know you haven’t read Potter….BUT as a middle school schlepp….er teacher…it was the best thing to get 12-16 year olds to READ!!! Watched some carry a book for months and want to discuss it! TY for justifying my career.

  35. Buddy and Leno
    1:02 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Hey, the quiz brings something to mind that’s bugging me as a continuity geek.

    OK, in all the books, Chet seems to know a lot about “the Leda days”, implying that he was around before the divorce, when Charlie was even younger than he is now. But! In “A Cat Was Involved”, Leda was already gone, and taken all her stuff with her.

    So was there a reconciliation? Did Chet just hear about “the Leda days”? Did Spence make a continuity booboo? Or should I just kinda not worry about it?

  36. BearSpiritDog
    1:07 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Buddy&Leno: Good Question! Maybe Chet can clear this up?

  37. B. Stover
    1:07 pm on September 12th, 2013

    HOH: I’ve read ALL of the Potter books and loved them. (I got two of my degrees from Eastern Mich. U and they have a course in the English Dept. on Harry Potter! That makes me want to teach again! Not really but I think it’s great that they created the course.)

  38. Staff
    1:08 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Buddy, I don’t know about you but I decided that it was one of those things you just let slide. Snicker. But it would make a great question at one of the signings….hint hint

  39. BearSpiritDog
    1:13 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Staff: Good Idea. Don’t trust me to Remember all the details, but If I Do…I Will…Heh.

  40. Herd of Hounds
    1:34 pm on September 12th, 2013

    HRH B: Yes have read all Potters 5-6 times. Mom’s idea was that it empowered children. They are some of the best literature for youngsters ever!. Thought we saw you say you hadn’t read ’em sorry. Great literature endures through the ages…Shakespeare…Lewis Carroll…Wizard of Oz…C.S. Lewis…

  41. B. Stover
    1:37 pm on September 12th, 2013

    HOH: I have never read Lord of the Rings. I may…at some point….

  42. Buddy and Leno
    1:47 pm on September 12th, 2013

    We love the Potter books! I have them all in multiple formats (audio, Jim Dale is fantastic, braille, and the first four in print, even though I can’t read those…)

    Book signing? Yeah, the chances that there would be one of those in beautiful and hysterical Erie, PA are pretty slim I reckon. Someone will have to ask on my behalf. Of course, the other issue is…how old is Chet, exactly? I choose to believe he has been blessed with unusually long life. There ya go.

  43. O'Howlers
    1:50 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Buddy and Leno, We caught that too, and we are hoping a future book or e-story will clear it up.

  44. Herd of Hounds
    1:54 pm on September 12th, 2013

    We of the HOH are willing to suspend for artistic license Chet’s age.

  45. B. Stover
    1:57 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Buddy and Leno: At one point I wanted to study Latin again so I bought The Chamber of Secrets in Latin (Harrius Potter et Camera Secretorum). I haven’t read that version yet!

  46. Herd of Hounds
    2:13 pm on September 12th, 2013

    B: What a neat idea. Since 28 of my 33 years of teaching was theatre and 28 was Spanish..perhaps I should get the series in Spanish ๐Ÿ™‚ TY for a great idea.
    Buddy: Mom had always thought she’d be a good continuity editor…..?

  47. Siber-H
    2:18 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Buddy and Leno, That is a good question and maybe Spence will deal with it someday. I choose to believe Chet is ageless and hope Spence will keep him that way.

    It is raining again…sob, sob, sob

    Rio, check in with us if you can and let us know you are not underwater.
    The Rockies are losing while Rio is away.

  48. B. Stover
    2:23 pm on September 12th, 2013

    HOH: Let me know how you like the Spanish translations.

  49. Herd of Hounds
    2:34 pm on September 12th, 2013

    OK…will do

  50. O'Howlers
    2:46 pm on September 12th, 2013

    We here don’t worry at all about Chet’s age. Just because we must wait a year to read his next adventure does not mean that time has elapsed between adventures.
    We just are catching up on the news of the flooding in Colorado, and we are worried about Rio.

  51. BearSpiritDog
    3:10 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Rio! Gurgle. Check in!

  52. Buddy and Leno
    3:13 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Yeah, I heard about that this morning. Hope they’re OK. A bit of dark irony: the news this morning said the roads are closed, businesses are closed, emergency shelters are open but no one can get to those.

  53. Melanie
    3:23 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Whew, back from the non flooding, but increasing humid, would you please just come through FRONT, errands.

    Love Harry Potter. I will not be reading him in any other of language. I actually took five years of French. After my children and dealing with the dyslexia, ADD and ADHD, I speak three languages; American English, Dyslexian English, ADD English and Hyperactive English.

    And no, they are not the same, at all, at all.

    We keep hoping that grocery stores will deliver in our area. Yeah, right.

  54. Herd of Hounds
    3:24 pm on September 12th, 2013

    HRH B: Got the books in Sp… on order. will let you know………

  55. Melanie
    3:26 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Hmm, just looked at the radar. Not sure if I’ll be back any time soon. Hopefully, the internet will not vanish again.

    I feel like I live on an island like BearSpiritDog and Masquers.

  56. B. Stover
    4:19 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Bear: I keep forgetting to say–you’ll do fine with the quiz questions.

  57. O'Howlers
    5:53 pm on September 12th, 2013

    It’s Christmas in September!
    Mom and Pop just received more Auction winnings: these are from the Newf Pack…Mom’s cool Alaska Husky pins to wear at Iditarod 2014, and Pop’s Howling Husky Sled Dog Team photo. Now we’re all twirling (or maybe that’s the wind blowing us around. We are having a hellacious storm right now).

  58. Barb & Maggie
    6:06 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Chet is sort of like Tara in the Andy Carpenter books, who will never age beyone 7. Artistic license.

    Well, Barb has a training question for you. LuLu has been here several hours. She is sweet and a love, but she has periods of puppy craziness. She zoooms in circles and leaps at me and gets totally out of control. Also was running laps in the house – living room – dining room, then leaping on the ottoman on to the sofa and back to the living room.. I was getting a little stressed after awhile and Barb grabbed her and made her settle down. Now she is conked out on the sofa, sleeping like a baby.

    We can deal with all that, but when Jack and Lyla came over to see her, she jumped at their faces and nipped. Excited play, but upset the kids, of course. How do we handle this and stop it before it gets out of hand? She probably has not had much training, and this behavior might be why she got dumped.

  59. O'Howlers
    6:13 pm on September 12th, 2013

    We think LuLu is just exhibiting normal puppy behavior that she was not able to exhibit prior to this. If the kids are scared of her, can you put her in a crate just while they are there? We don’t think she should have stern reprimands just yet, while she is trying to get over the horrer she went thru. If you can calm her down, or hold her for Jack and Lyla to pet, that would be good.
    Then again, what do we know? We completely spoiled Kat! ๐Ÿ™‚

  60. Melanie

    Thunder comes
    on big Newfie feet.

    It sits sounding
    over the hills and valleys
    with drooling jowls
    and then moves on.

    P.S. Has OFA gotten safely to Denver?

  63. Melanie
    7:03 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Barb and MagPie, she’s young. Go for the distraction. Does she like toys? If so call her, when she comes, praise her and give her the toy.

    Big computer is off. Internet iffy.

    Going to read Sound.

  64. Herd of Hounds
    7:15 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Yo,Frank cute little Darah is still waiting…am I too pushy?

    LOUD thunder, and electrical lightning crackling. Time to hide in the bathtub.

  67. Herd of Hounds
    7:45 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Wose 2 r with u. Hiding in the tub is a good thing.

  68. Melanie
    7:56 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Franklin will get back to Darah when he comes out from under the bed.
    He does NOT like storms.

    BooBear! Package arrived and all is safe. Zoรซ says thank you and she loves those Funky Chickens!

    Staff and O’Howlers, enjoy!

    Looks like another band of bad weather. Could be what has Rose in the bathtub is moving Northeast.

  69. Tupper's Mama
    8:15 pm on September 12th, 2013

    We are between thunderstorms here at the beach. But the thunder is long low rumbles instead of loud “crrrrraacccks!”, so none of us are hiding under beds.

    We are concerned about Rio and the weather in Colorado.

    And have you all heard about the boardwalk on the Jersey shore? Sheesh, do you think the earth is just saying “no more boardwalks here!”

  70. Riรถ - The Evil Pug
    8:16 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Flood!…Wouldn’t you know it. The one time Spencer decides to come to my state, we have a “100 Year Flood”. I bet he won’t soon forget this soggy trip..sniff!…Only happens once every 100 years, they say….grunt!…Pepper and I have been watching the news and it is bad. But we are not in the flood zone out here on the farm…sniff!…It has been raining and wet, but nothing like on the front range….wheeze!

    Beau-Update…Meanwhile Beau is High and Dry in Iowa. That state is Brown. It is usually very green….grunt!… He sent me a note saying it is a little cooler and more bearable – but he cannot wait to get home. He has no idea when that will be, but my guess is tomorrow or the next day, or the next day because someone said she had to go back to the busy-place on Monday….whuffle!

  71. Melanie
    8:41 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Riรถ, good to hear you and Pepper are safe.

    Hi T&G! Tell your mum and da hello!

    I have to say it . . I have finished Sound. ๐Ÿ™

    But, a great deal of Chet-isfacion going on here!

    Thunder is starting again.

  72. Siber-H
    8:43 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Rio, Glad you could check in with us. All of us were worrying about you. The rain in Colorado is amazing.

    Rebecca and Rose, Received the poster today! Thank you both very much. It arrived in good shape. I love it!

  73. Riรถ - The Evil Pug
    8:55 pm on September 12th, 2013

    Connectivity!…grump!…It is touch-and-gone here at Peppers…sniff!…So I will be here as long as I can till I can’t…heh!… I have lots of stuff to complain about, but seeing as other guys are getting flooded out and even disappearing, I will hold my big long tongue about my gruffles….sniff!…They say a whole nuther round of big-time rain could happen over-night and make this a Katastrophic Katastrophe….wheeze!…No rain all summer long and now this…wheeze!

  74. Barb & Maggie
    9:09 pm on September 12th, 2013

    So glad to hear that you are safe and on high ground, Rio.

    Busy day here, and Barb is tuckered out. Got a beautiful mum plant from Jamie next door and a beautiful rose arrangement from Jim and Judy for taking care of LuLu. Had a yummy fillet for dinner. Barb feels very blessed this birthday.

    LuLu is curled up on the couch, so we are going to join her. Night all. Thanks for all the b day wishes.

    Barb — belated (at least in the day) Happy Birthday wishes. As to LuLu, your description sounds all too familiar re Teddy when he is in his devil dog mode. Two thoughts. First, the more exercise the better, just tire them out. Second, we taught Teddy to sit very early on to sit (rewarded with a treat, of course), and when he gets in devil dog mode, making him sit can often distract him and calm him down.

    Tour!…Sob!Sob!Sob!….I looked at the clock and Spencer is probably telling his old stories and making up new ones (not) right now….sniff!…Hopefully, a lot of fans made it to the talk. I do not believe the Tattered Cover in Highlands Ranch is being flooded out – I could be wrong, but I think it is safe there…wuffle!…Surely, Spencer brought his rain gear just in case of a 100 Year Flood…Sob!Sob!Sob!

    Wookie and Teddy’s Dad: Come to think of it, Mom always made me stop and sit just when I was getting wound up for some wild fun. Then I would forget what it was I was going to do.
    Rio, We are so very happy to hear that you and Pepper are safe. How about your house?

    Wha a day, what a day. I just boarded my flight to Anchorage. Tomorrow is another village and then I plan on staying put at home for Saturday.

    AJ made the trip to get the dogs. Tenzing was copilot. They have probably started their journey home. He made good time there. Paws crossed that the dog truck keeps working. It’s been in the shop four our five times since the race.

    Stay safe all youse. Night nutter butters.

    Another 370-mile trip to North Pole. I drive with headlights on anyway but we are losing so much light everyday I actually needed them the last couple of hours of the trip.

    Potential buyer made a counter offer; I’ll make a counter offer tomorrow. Hopefully that will be that. We will see.

    Barb: glad you had a great b-day.

    Oh happy day! Guess what I found late late last night? I guess I just didn’t wait long enough before. I now have the audiobook! So I can listen to the masterful Jim Frangione as the Voice Of Chet, instead of iPhone Karen. (While Karen, the Australian voice, is a vast improvement over grumpy Samantha, the American one, it’s still not Jim Frangione.) So, yeah, guess what I’ll be doing this weekend?! You got it Toyota! See y’all on today’s post ๐Ÿ™‚
