Sundays With Ingrid (Dedicated To Sammie, In Memory)

Were people at school looking at her funny? Ingrid couldn’t tell. Ms. Groome was looking at her funny for sure, but nothing new there.  “And now, class,” said Ms. Groome, “we’ve got just enough time for a quick pop quiz. Pass these around.”

Ms. Groome had a thing for pop quizzes. This one – with the heading Algebra Two Pop Quiz #46 – had seven questions, which should have been a good omen, but Ingrid knew better. She scanned the first one: Two rafts are floating down the Mississippi River. The first raft travels at a speed of …

Floating down the Mississippi River. That sounded pretty good right now. Ingrid had never seen the Mississippi River. Never even seen it, and yet she’d spent whole years of her life inside this school building, Ferrand Middle, where the air got so stuffy and overheated on winter afternoons like this. Nothing to be done about it – that was the way things were. But why? Did it have anything to do with those huge economic forces Dad sometimes talked about? Like surfers on a wave – we can change our own direction a little bit but we can’t change the wave.

In the margin of Pop Quiz #46 Ingrid started sketching a surfer on a wave. Where to begin? How about the surfer’s legs? Surfing must be all about balance, so maybe an angling calf line like so, and then another one, narrowing down to –

“Class. Pencils down. Pass your papers forward.”

Yikes. Ingrid whipped through the answer boxes, filling in numbers willy-nilly.

“I see that ‘pencils down’ doesn’t apply to you, Bruce. Mind telling the class what makes you so special?”

Everyone waited in anticipation. This was going to be good. Thank God for Brucie. Ingrid erased the beginnings of the surfer on her wave and passed in her quiz.

From Into the Dark.

    Hey! I think I'm first! Sweet!

    For Sammie. Good morning Ingrid, Chet and everyone.

    Hi Lexi. Did you have a nice Thanksgiving?

  4. Lexi
    4:26 am on November 28th, 2010

    Hi Bee. Yes, I had a very nice Thanksgiving. Except for Maggie, of course(she ate ALL of our food!). Thank you. And thank God this is finally working.

    I'm a happy puppy.

    Liz: Regarding stuffing or dressing–Some think the distinction is geographical, some say it's the bread base used, some say stuffing is cooked inside the turkey and dressing is cooked outside the turkey. We always called it dressing so I knew exactly what you meant. Whatever, it's extremely yummy!

  6. Barb & Maggie
    4:39 am on November 28th, 2010

    Good Morning. We, too are sorry about Sammie. Hope all news is good today, including, or especially, about Dan.

    It is 8:33 here, and Barb's neighbor Ellen is coming over at 9:00 to drag out some Christmas decorations for her. Arms are not totally working yet.

    Ellen is a nice lady in many respects, but she doesn't like my kind, so I have to stay in the laundry room while she is here. Barb is also irratated with her, because she loaned her THAT about 3-4 months ago and she can't find it. Barb is about ready to order another one, as she has asked for it back about a dozen times.

    Also, everyone she talks to says "Oh Ellen told me about your problem". Even the lady who she bought some frozen chickens from last year sent her a card! Not that it's a big secret, but Barb would rather choose who she tells. Does anyone else have a problem with that, or is Barb being overly sensitive?

    Dedicated to Sammie and it's all about the love in that little life.

  8. B.Stover
    5:04 am on November 28th, 2010

    Barb: I think it's possible that by telling everyone about your "problem," Ellen is trying to prove to people that you and she are very good friends. She may be lonely.

    Hey there Barb,

    I brought Staff a mouse last night. I let it go on her bed! It was still alive. She was not amused. So I brought it to her two more times. Then she decided to read on the couch for a while.

    About the neighbor. One of Staff's most helpful friends was just like that. She even told the people at the local clinic (who then told staff) The lady at the clinic said, "She told everyone in the waiting room. Hasn't she ever heard of Hippa?" (I have heard of hippo, but not hippa).

    So maybe that is the price you pay for 'help'? I am not sure but it is no sense getting into a conniption fit. It won't make any difference to someone like that. Staff says that lady is the first one to complain when people talk about her.

    However I would make a fuss about the book. Tell her you have to order another one. I am not saying she should pay for it, but she should offer to pay for it. Oh, and NEVER EVER lend her another.

    Missing Missing Macy

    Where has our poet gone?

    Got put down by Mr. Riö

    I think he owes her a bone.

  11. Melanie
    5:35 am on November 28th, 2010

    Two pics. It was really cold and snowy yesterday on our walk.

    YSAS and GF were trying to make OTAS less self conscious and let me take this photo.

  12. Melanie
    5:38 am on November 28th, 2010

    Then for Riö a picture of Patsy in her vest with GF.

    I THOUGHT I had taken a great one of Patsy and Mac together, orange vests blazing in the snow. But I think the camera froze.

    Thank You again, Chet, for remembering the family members we have lost.

    Barb, NO, You are not being overly sensitive. My mom, also, would like to choose who learns a bit about her private life. The people who blab on and on and gossip just want to feel important because something is lacking in their emotional makeup.

    Macy, don't you dare leave us. We would miss you.

    BBL sigh

    Patsy!…Her big ole head looks so soft. Is that drool hanging off her face? …snort!…Great photos Melanie….hey!…I read Min Pin’s last (hopefully) rant last night. Seems she has suddenly realized that I am a bad guy with no manners, and I am pretty sure the universe does revolve around me….grunt!…It took her a long time but she finally has me figured out…heh!…Too bad someone took all this nonsense so seriously they had to cry about it…grunt!…That is never my intention. Melanie cried once, but I don’t recall anyone else crying over this here blog….snort!

    Busy!….We are busy wrapping a gift for a baby. One who isn’t born yet, but still needs stuff…grunt!… Also up and down the stairs doing laundry…yeep!…I’m tired so when she is gone I will be sleeping big time…snort!

  15. Sam
    6:44 am on November 28th, 2010

    Macy, I hope you were just teasing Rio about leaving us. Where else will I find such a good Princess-wannabee for me to pick on?

  16. Melanie
    7:18 am on November 28th, 2010

    Drool? Drool? The Pack does not drool.

    Mainly because they wipe their jaws on people's jeans.

  17. Riö - The Evil
    7:23 am on November 28th, 2010

    Melanie!…Gah!…That sounds disgusting! I think I will go outside and roll in something….grunt!

  18. Riö - The Evil
    8:07 am on November 28th, 2010

    Alice!…Did I read Alice’s post correctly?….snort!…She actually caught a mouse? This is utterly amazing. The faux furred one actually can hunt but not kill a mouse…heh!…I liked the part about dropping it on Staff’s bed. That was a nice twisted touch there Alice…heh! ….Was she sleeping at the time?…grunt!

  19. Wolfie
    8:12 am on November 28th, 2010

    Macy, please don't take anything Rio says personally. He has a good heart and he means well but sometimes he gets a little Grumpy.

    He made my mom cry the first time she posted but she quickly figured out that he has a heart of gold. Please don't go anywhere – you are one of Us and we need you.

  20. dawson
    8:20 am on November 28th, 2010

    Staff was in a foul mood this morning and the mouse was still running around. The cats are in my care for one week while Staff and Mr. Staff go tie up any loose ends in North Dakota. I am taking a cast iron frying pan to bed with me in case Alice has any ideas of bringing me a live mouse.

  21. Riö - The Evil
    8:28 am on November 28th, 2010

    Dawson!…I’ve heard tales of your frying pan skills!…heh!… That mouse is as good as dead!…grunt!…I bet Alice is just torturing that mouse. Letting it live another day just so she can clamp her sharp teeth into it again and again….snort!

  22. Riö - The Evil
    8:31 am on November 28th, 2010

    Wolfie!… How’s the puppy?…snicker!

  23. Mollypop
    9:10 am on November 28th, 2010

    From what we have seen previously of Dawson's skill wielding a frying pan, all the furniture will be destroyed and the mouse will still be alive.

  24. Barb & Maggie
    9:23 am on November 28th, 2010

    Alice and Abbie, If the frying pan fails, I can be at your service. Do you have any idea how quickly I take care of a mouse? Once Barb opened the bird seed container in the garage and I grabbed two in my mouth at the same time. Poor mousies!

    We just went back and reread Macy's final post last night. Please come back, MinPin. We love you, and you are taking that little Pug way too seriously. We thought your comment about the dressing was funny, and we added that we didn't know what it meant either. Please don't leave us, you are an important part of the blog.

    Barb's gabby friend just left after 4+ hours of decorating. The house looks festive and beautiful, so we will overlook her talk-too-much tendencies. Barb asked again about THAT, and she said she hasn't found it. Barb told her she is going to order a new copy and she did offer to pay for it, so that made us feel a little better. Bad thing is she never even read it ("dog stories are not her thing").

  25. B.Stover
    9:46 am on November 28th, 2010

    The first text I'm teaching next semester is the Epic of Gilgamesh. It's been a number of years since I taught it so I've been gathering research. Very interesting. Now I have to start reading and taking notes but I think I'll wait until tomorrow. I haven't finished researching Richard III yet either. The Odyssey and The Inferno fit in between those. There is also the Tao Te Ching and Moliere, either The Misanthrope or Tartuffe. Which should it be? (I'm looking at the new syllabus.)

    How is Dan doing Melanie?

  26. Melanie
    10:17 am on November 28th, 2010

    Hey Pug! Me Cry? What? Well, yes I did when Buford died and now little Sammy, but cry over you? Ha! I say, and again, HA!

    Dan might come home tomorrow. Which is great. It would be nice if they knew WHAT WAS WRONG! They have said, it isn't this, it isn't that. . Jeez.

    The hospitalist keeps checking his heart. Hmm. Let's see, the pain is under the RIGHT LUNG. Maybe they moved Dan's heart in one of those operations.

    He does sound better.

    B.Stover: Sounds fascinating what you are doing. I hope you give us some interesting tidbits to research for you.

    YSAS loved Looking for Richard with Al Pacino about "Richard III". It was an excellent documentary about Shakespeare, the modern world, the characters and the play itself.

  27. Melanie
    10:18 am on November 28th, 2010

    Hmmm. When I read the post I thought that Dawson meant that Alice should look out for flying frying pans. Then I realized it was the mouse.

  28. bluecat
    11:08 am on November 28th, 2010

    Macy – you are very amusing and talented and I hope the permanently out was a joke. We need every Plunderer to keep ahead of a certain pugness, especially a Plunderer with wit like yours.

    Bee – Tartuffe, if I remember correctly, is more "fun". What level is this course? Sounds like it would be way over my head.

  29. dawson
    11:39 am on November 28th, 2010

    Yes, of course it was the mouse I was planning on beaning with the frying pan but after reading you-alls posts I am re-thinking the cast iron. I could hit a knee-cap by mistake and end up permanently injured. The kats have been sleeping ever since Staff left so I am sure they are dreaming up mischief.

    Macy MinPin: I thought your remarks about dressing the headless turkey in leg-warmers were hilarious. They were meant to be, weren't they?

  30. B.Stover
    12:08 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Bluecat: Tartuffe is more fun. The course is the first semester of a year-long required World Masterpieces course and the students are usually sophomore level. One of my sections is the honors section. It is so much fun teaching honors students. I just have to ask a question or say something outrageous (snicker) and they take over the discussion. They always come up with brilliant ideas.

    Melanie: I saw the Looking for Richard and may watch it again. I'm interested in the idea that Shakespeare's Richard conforms to the Tutor version and doesn't portray the historical Richard. More research is required.

  31. B.Stover
    12:09 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Melanie: Do you remember if Looking for Richard discusses the Tutor version vs historical version?

  32. Melanie
    12:35 pm on November 28th, 2010

    B.Stover: I watched it about 3 years ago and I think it did. I'm thinking of reading the play and then watching it again.

  33. B.Stover
    12:44 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Melanie: Excellent. I'll do the same.

  34. Siber-H
    12:58 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Come back Macy!! I only have three friends in Texas…You and Gus&Boobear and one of them is MISSING! A Texas guy needs his Texas friends.

  35. Barb & Maggie
    1:07 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Ditto what Siber says, Macy!

  36. Riö - The Evil
    1:23 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Awake!… I’m awake…yawn!….What’s happening besides you guys begging for that pouting, spoilt Min Pin to come back?…grunt!… I kind of like it without her. Last night she said “Macy permanently out!” Then she posted 2 more times, so it won’t be long and she will be back telling dumb jokes, although I did like her poems. …heh!… My friend is glad to be back home because a storm is brewing outside…shudder!….It’s cold, cloudy and windy…sniff!

  37. Melanie
    1:58 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Just heard from YSAS and GF. They left here at 2 pm for a 3 1/2 hour trip. They are still on the road. 91 became a parking lot around Sturbridge, MA. They finally got through that and a tire went flat. A good Samaritan said he'd change if for the price of a cup of coffee.

    YSAS used his new DROID (still hearing the music when I write that) as a flashlight. Gave the guy $20 and are now around 60 minutes from GF home.


    Which reminds me: (forgive me for changing some of the lyrics)

    Creator who stills the restless foam,

    Protect the ones who travel home.

    Provide that they should always be

    By Thine own grace both safe and free.

    Creator hear us when we pray

    For those we love so far away.

    2:05 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Clarkson!…. Is he okay?…snort!…I loved the photo of him and his girlfriend, who is very lovely, by the way….grunt!… Nothing bad can happen to Clarkson, he has a destiny to fulfill!…wheeze!…Melanie, please let me know when he gets to NY safe and sound…snuffle!…Where does your older son live?…sniff!…Sorry if you already told us, I can't remember…snorkle!

  39. Melanie
    2:22 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Riö: YSAS and GF are on their way to just North of Boston. She lives there and teaches. He's staying there until Tuesday when he will go back to NYC. Then back to work!

    OTAS and OTAS'sF live in NJ around 4 hours away. Except when they came up Thanksgiving afternoon and the traffic gods where with them. They got here in 3 hours and 10 minutes. I try not to think how fast they went.

    B.Stover: Tomorrow I will go downstairs then upstairs and search YSAS's bookcase for Richard III. I'm also going to ask him if there any books up there that compare History to Shakespeare's plays.

    Surprise, surprise – the Buffalo Bills lost another game.

  41. Melanie
    2:40 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Riö! They are safe back at GF's house!

  42. Riö - The Evil
    2:40 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Melanie!…So did Dan miss Thanksgiving with his grandsons and their significant others?…snuffle!…That is so sad if he did. I just fret over that guy. Please tell him he needs to get better and be at home where he should be for the holidays….dammit!

  43. Riö - The Evil
    2:43 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Molly!…I'm pretty sure the Broncos did too…grunt!…We checked the score and it was dismal at the beginning of the 3rd quarter…snuff!… No Hope, No Glory at all this year…yeep!

  44. Riö - The Evil
    2:45 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Hooray!….Clarkson and his lovely girlfriend are safe and sound for the evening!…whew!…Thanks Melanie!…sniffle!

  45. Staff
    2:46 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Staff here,

    We are home and it is very strange not to have any Kats around. They should be OK because they now have 3 staff to take care of them instead of only 2. I called A Catty when we got home and they were near Jamestown ND then (about 1-1/2 hours ago) They might even be near Bismarck by now.

    We both have had good weather so far.

    Dawson!!! Don't hit my kitties! (I know you won't) Just close the door if you hear any galloping around. That is thier signal they have a mousie.

    Here is a previous mousie time with Alice. (2008) Last night was just the same except she brought the same dratted mouse up THREE TIMES!

    They were still hunting it this morning when we left. Maggie, I wish you were here because you don't play with them, you just kill them off. Much better idea.

  46. Riö - The Evil
    2:55 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Staff!….That is an Excellent story about Alice and her strange ways…heh!…Weird does not describe what I just read…grunt!….My friend would be out of her mind if 4 mice were released in her bed while she was sleeping…wheeze!… I would be a dead Pug if I pulled those kind of shenanigans…snort!

  47. dawson
    3:01 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Staff: Mom was asking what happened to the mouse. As far as I know it is alive and kicking. Kats are just starting to stir after a very lazy day.

  48. Melanie
    3:08 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Staff: That is hilarious! Reminds me of the time when I had Kats, chickens and goats. Ex was not fond of the Kats. One morning he woke up to a crunching noise. One of the Kats had caught a treat and was eating the treat right next to ex's head.

    I thought it was funny!

    Riö: It's okay! Dan was with us until Saturday morning! He had a great time with all the grandkids and SO's. I just wish the docs would figure out what's going on . .

  49. Riö - The Evil
    3:18 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Melanie!…What are Dan’s symptoms? Maybe we Plunderers can diagnose him…snort!…We are good at research, you know!…sniffle!… I just want him to be healthy, happy and back at home with Zoe…snuff!

    Oooer!…The Kats are waking up!…snort!…This could get interesting with that little mousie still running around…cough!…He may be hiding out and “dressing” his wounds, waiting for the best time to scamper around for Thanksgiving crumbs…heh!

  50. Barb & Maggie
    3:34 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Funny story and picture, Staff. Barb doesn't have to worry, I would never release a live mouse on her bed! Maybe I should pay the kats a visit and we could do a training session. I work for food and treats (live ones preferred).

    Loved the pictures, Melanie. You have handsome boys and darling SOs. Glad they are getting back home safely.

  51. Melanie
    3:34 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Riö: Did you ever watch Tom Hanks in "Joe VS the Volcano"? He was diagnosed with a brain cloud.

    We figure that's what the docs are going to say, "Dan has a lung cloud."

    He has a normal temperature, heart rate, blood pressure, blood work and his O2 levels are great.

    He also has a pain below his right lung that hurts when he breathes.

    They have ruled out:

    heart attack

    blood clot

    viral, bacterial pneumonia

    Of course, I had a pain there that made it hard to breath and I had an ulcer. I think they've checked for that?? Not sure though. The doc was the weekend doc, tomorrow we get the week doc. Wondering if that will make a difference.

    Oh, and YSAS would really like to have a career like Tom Hanks.

  52. LizF
    3:41 pm on November 28th, 2010

    I'm starting to feel very sorry for that poor little mouse. I've just finished TFAT (thanks to B) and found what was happening to all the animals very distressing! And Chet in a muzzle and cage?? – grrrrrrrr…

    Barb you are not being overly sensitive, Ellen has no right to be spreading your health information.

  53. Melanie
    3:47 pm on November 28th, 2010

    And just as LizF comes on, I must sleep.

    Hi LizF! Bye LizF!


  54. Riö - The Evil
    3:49 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Liz!…What did you think about Uncle Rio?…heh!…And the Goat?..sniff!…Although the marauding goats were during the time when you were missing…dammit!

  55. LizF
    4:04 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Bye Melanie! Dang. I was going to say have they checked out Dan's liver?

    Yeah, Uncle Rio, how cool is it to have a character named after you!!

  56. Riö - The Evil
    4:13 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Liz!… It is very cool! Although I have never gotten confirmation on high authority that that is actually what it is. A character named after me!….snort!… Wookie, on the other hand is very certain that is the case. I take Wookie’s word very seriously, so I have to believe Uncle Rio is named after me….heh!heh! …It makes me very happy whenever I think about it…snorkel!….heh!

  57. Riö - The Evil
    4:14 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Liz!…Is the Liver under the right lung?….grunt!…This is not good if it is his Liver….yeep!

  58. A. Catty Librarian
    4:17 pm on November 28th, 2010

    A. Catty here: we are safe in Bismarck. The storm coming east over the plains is just starting to blow here so we had no snow for the entire drive. We did stop at the computer store and a knitting store and for dinner on our way.

    So sorry to read about Buford and Sammie. I miss cuddling with the Fatty Kitty still. And hope Dan stops hurting soon too.

    Dawson – you're posting with your new little netbook, aren't you?

  59. LizF
    4:22 pm on November 28th, 2010

    I'm pretty certain too. That's what i'd be telling everyone if i were you, regardless of whether it's true or not!

    Well, the liver is there, but it's not like i'm a medical expert. I'm sure they would have looked into that… On the other hand i don't have much faith in doctors…

    Wolfie doesn't say much about that new puppy, huh?

  60. B.Stover
    4:26 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Perhaps Dan cracked a rib.

    I'm so glad that Dawson has a new notebook. And I'm glad ACL is home. Hi Liz.

    Night all.

  61. Riö - The Evil
    4:29 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Catty!…You are finally out of the kitchen and posting again!…snort!….Good to hear from you, glad you are safe and sound. What’s this? Dawson has a new netbook computer?….grunt!… How great is that? From Legacy to High Tech…heh!…Way to go Dawson!…snort!

    Liver!…I’m worried now, about the liver coming into the picture….snuffle!…Please Dan, get well and go home with your family…sniffle!

    Liz!…Puppies Rule….snort!…Poor Wolfie.

  62. Barb & Maggie
    4:29 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Wolfie, Liz is right. We have not heard much about the puppy, or your boys either. Can you share their status with us? Not trying to be a nosey parker here, but hope all is well.

    Sleep tight, Melanie.

  63. Riö - The Evil
    4:31 pm on November 28th, 2010

    Rib!…A cracked rib. I like that idea a lot better than something wrong with his liver…sniff!…Good idea Stover!.

    Dawson – I love new computer equipment. What did you get?

    We just finished watching the Hallmark Hall of Fame Christmas special this year, called November Christmas. The Hallmark specials are always very good and the Christmas ones are especially touching. My mom just loves them, they are her absolute favorite. Last year the special was called A Dog Named Christmas, how about that. This year's show was particularly mopsy, about a 15 kleenex type of show, but with a happy ending that made her smile and cry some more. My dad also enjoys them; he's very much a happy ending sort of guy too. I had a frosty paws to tide me over through the show, so all in all, it was a pretty terrific night. With that, good night to all and sweet dreams too. Wookie

    Not sure if I am doing this right but just wanted to see if anyone had watched the wonderful Hallmark Hall of Fame Movie. Lots of kleenex necessary but reminds us all that with a shared community we can see our way through many of life's troubles. Thank you to all of the plunderers for making each day a little brighter.

    Hey, I think the new comment system is in place. Not sure if I like it because all of the old comments seemed to have disappeared. That would definitely not be cool. If Mike Baker is around, see if you can fix it. It also thinks my name is too long. Wookie

    So how long does it take for a comment to be approved? Will we only be able to see one at a time instead of the whole days comments?
    Will my name be automatic like before or will I have to type it all in everytime?

    Hi Debbie LM, It seems we are the only two who are posting right now. No I did not see the Hallmark movie. They are usually very good.

    What the he**. Mike is a 15P poster. Heh. Hover over the little oval next to his name and see his posting 'reputation'. I wonder who will be grading our comments? Maybe BStover? She is used to grading.

    Do I have to click that I am not posting on facebook in order to get this posted. I don't like having to click twice to post. I am a lazy poster. (Probably a low score for that)
