Sundays With Ingrid (Father’s Day Selection)

In the morning when Ingrid went downstairs, Mom and Ty were already gone. Echo Falls High started half an hour before Ferrand Middle, and Mom went right by it on her way to work. That meant Ingrid and Dad ate a lot of breakfasts together, Dad never going in before his nine-o’clock meeting with Mr. Ferrand. Dad would read her little snippets from The Wall Street Journal, and Ingrid would eat the kind of things she ate when no one was paying attention. But today The Wall Street Journal was still in its plastic wrapper and Dad was already packing his briefcase, tie knotted, suit jacket on.

“Morning, Dad.”

“Morning,” he said, barely looking up. “Going in a little early today.”

“Something special happening?”

“Probably be going in a little early for the foreseeable future.”

“How come?”

“Globalization, if you want to put it in one word.”

A word that was in the air, even if Ingrid didn’t really understand it. “What does it mean, anyway?”

“Means we’re all going to have to work harder,” Dad said. “Including you.”


“Not just you,” said Dad. “Kids in general.”

“Kids have to work harder?”

“That’s the future. Big forces are on the move.”

“What kind of forces?”

“History will judge.”

Dad poured coffee into a thermos—he never did that, always enjoyed his second cup at home—and headed for the door that led from the kitchen to the garage.

“I like your shirt, Dad.” A beautiful deep blue with white collar and cuffs, but Dad, already out the door, didn’t hear. For the first time in her life, Ingrid felt a little nostalgic. History would judge how hard she was working? The future sounded grim.

From Behind the Curtain. Happy Father’s Day.

    I found when I read this excerpt from "Behind The Curtain" that I just wanted to kick Ingrid's dad's butt. "Hey, look at the wonderful daughter you've got!!"

    He comes through though.

    : ) Sorry I missed all the fun last night. Hope this works.

    Pups continue to nurse as long as they possibly can. Their mothers get a little tired of it when they start having teeth.

    In fact Franklin and Mac love puppies until they get tall enough to nurse standing up!


    Grace had a nice walk and she's eating. I will mention the roast chicken to her Wookie.

    Still no TV!!!! I can't stand this. Time Warner will arrive between 12 and 4 p.m. They giveth and they taketh away.

    6:59 am on June 20th, 2010

    Sam, so sorry about no TV. How does a Princess handle that? With grace or biting the pant's leg of the TV guy?

    Hi there everyone. Gee Sam is without TV, Rio is going to a farm and I just left a farm. Seems like an exciting day.

    ~ I just want everyone to note that the Twins 'pulled one out' yesterday. They were behind 4 to 9 going into the 9th inning and ended up winning the game 13 to 10 in the 11th inning.

    Whhooooo Hooooo twinkies!

    Sorry Dawson! Detroit is still not number 1.

    Melanie, first I need the guy to show up! Hopefully before 4 p.m. Then if he doesn't fix it, I will have to severely nip his ankles!

    *Yawn* Good morning, all to are here. Happy Father's Day!! 🙂 I wonder if there are Dog Days. Are there? Huh. Well, that'd be cool. We'd get treats and belly rubs…and…and treats…ah.

    Well, I'm feeling pretty good today. I had a nice time last night in my dream. I was at the park, chasing a ball that wouldn't stop bouncing, and then all of a sudden, everybody was there. Including you, Chet. And Bernie. (I only caught glimpses of Bernie, but I know he was there) He would throw the ball really far and then we'd all go running after it. I would almost lways get it, because I was running really fast in my dream. It was awesome! I wish I could go back…

    Ah, well. Whatever. Mommy's making some smoothies for some reason. At first, we couldn't find the blender thingy, and we searched all over the house for it. And when we found it, Mommy started kissing it. It looked fun, so I joined her. Now it's making the really loud noise, and all of the fruit is going round and round in it. It's fun to watch, but my neck is starting to hurt.

    I think I found out a new one of the 🙂 😛 and 🙁 things. Maybe :O works. I'm not sure. These things are so cute. You know what? Lets name them. This 🙂 one can be Bob. This 😛 one can be Bob #2. This 🙁 one can be Bob #3. And if this :O one works, this :O one can be Bob #4. Wo! Go Bobs!

  11. Lexi
    7:19 am on June 20th, 2010

    Aw, the :O didn't work. Sob. 🙁 Yeah, Bob #3!! 🙂 Bob #1!

    Happy Father's Day all. I have a sinus infection so I'm a bit out of it today.

    I'm glad Grace is eating. (Poor Franklin–my favorite–and Mac.) Sorry about no tv Sam. Sorry Staff, but I suppose I should be loyal and cheer on the Tigers.

  13. Lexi
    7:28 am on June 20th, 2010

    Aww Bee! It' okay! Hope you and your sinus infection gets better.

    …I don't think I worded that right…

    I'm just a puppy!

    Here's to you!!

    🙂 😛 🙂 😛 🙂 😛 🙂 😛 Have fun with your Bobs I sent you! 🙂

    That last Bob was my Bob.

    Tailwags and licks. Lexi-an energetic pup.

  14. B. Stover
    7:59 am on June 20th, 2010

    Thank you Lexi. Your Bobs make me feel much better!

  15. Lexi

    Your welcome, Bee! Have all the Bobs that you want! 🙂 😛 🙂 😛

    I'm sharing some of the smoothies that Mommy made a little while ago. These things are REALLY good! I wish you guys can have some, but, you can't eat them through the computer. And, these things are too good to share. I'm surprised Megan is sharing them with me. Well, I first went to Mommy, and when she said that that was enough, I went to Daddy and he gave me some. And when he said that that was enough, I went to Megan. Humans are so clueless. 🙂

    Melanie!…Are you out here all alone talking to yourself? I know what that’s like…grunt!…Well, we are off to the farm. Wooo!…snort!… I love the farm. I can run all over and cause havoc wherever I go and set it up so my best friend Pepper takes the blame…heh! … bye for now! 😛

  18. Sam
    11:25 am on June 20th, 2010

    I got my TV. Yeah! I hope you can see my big smile. <:o)

    Or not.

    11:28 am on June 20th, 2010

    B. Stover, Yuck, I hate sinus infections. Get well soon.

    Lexi: It looks like you are having a great day 🙂

    Gracie is eating on her own and the vet wants us to give her pepto bismol.

    Zoë decided to wait for me before she handled that!

    Have the air conditioning on, not really for heat, but for humidity.

  21. Barb & Maggie
    11:39 am on June 20th, 2010

    Hope Rio had fun at the farm today.

    Bee, Hope you feel better soon.

    So glad to hear that Gracie is eating and feeling better. Is it harder for them to recovery from the birthing when they have to have a c-section? It is with humans, so would think it would take dogs longer to bounce back, too.

    We are supposed to have more storms late toinght and into tomorrow. Flash flooding, due to saturated ground. Water has no place to go.

  22. Lexi
    11:44 am on June 20th, 2010

    I'm a sad puppy right now. 🙁 Mommy went out for a drive in her big car thing a while ago and never came back yet, and we can't reach her on her phone thing. I want my Mommy! 🙁 🙁 🙁

  23. Lexi
    11:45 am on June 20th, 2010

    Bob isn't happy either. 🙁

    The Librarian and I had fun going to a Good-Will store today. Then we went to a second hand furniture store. Then we went to an ice cream store. YUM.

    At the Good-Will I bought some stuff that will make a nice bird bath for the farm.

    I was looking for vintage sewing machines but the only one I found was in ratty condition and with parts missing and they wanted 289.00 dollars for it (at the furniture store).

    ((loud laughter))

    I have one the same type that is in perfect condition that I got for 20.00 at an auction. People are really clueless about the value of most of the old machines. Singer literally made millions of them. They are not rare unless they are in perfect condition. I really enjoy working on them and making them look good and work well.

    The one I brought for my little sister is a model 66, one of 50,000 commissioned on July 8, 1926. Between April and October of 1926, 150,000 Model 66's were commissioned. And that is only that particular model of Singer. On July 8th alone of that year 110,000 singers were 'allotted' Serial numbers. Model 99's, 127's and 128's were also allotted numbers that day.

    The machines were made after the serial numbers were allotted so that isn't the particular day that machine was made, but it is as close as you can get to the correct day.

    I am sure this is not interesting to all you doggies out there, but I find it fascinating. Maybe Wookie and WWWWWW find old sewing machines interesting too?

    ~I am looking forward to seeing the quilts that Wookie tested out and sent to the pups. I am glad Gracie is eating better and that the pups look to be enjoying their 'solid' food too.

    ~Rio, hope you and the family are having fun at the farm. Good luck at the Casino. Sounds like a good idea to me!

    Howdy, this is Rio’s friend. Can anyone help me? I secretly filmed Rio this morning and I want to share it with you, but I do not know if I can just attach the file as you do other .jpg files. Does anyone have a clue? It would be funny if you guys could see how he begs for cookies! Right now he is outside. I have to do this while he is gone!

  26. Siberian Husky
    12:21 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Whoops..the wrong dog found Rio's friends post first. Maybe the cats' staff can help. Help, staff, if you are there!

  27. Lexi
    12:21 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Friend of Rio! I do not know. Maybe you could try to post it, when under the INSERT COMMENT box, where it says Select File, try to post it under there. I wanna see Rio beg for a cookie! 🙂

    And Mommy came home! Oh, happy day!

  28. Lexi
    12:22 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Siber-H!! We posted at the same time! 🙂 Here's to you. 😛

    Oh no! He wants back in. I will have to attempt this later when he is outside again. Thanks!

    I would try saving the video to your desktop and then putting it on just as you would a photo. If this works expect it to be moderated.

    The only way I got it to work for me was to put it up on You-tube and then link to it.

    Good luck, I would LOVE to see Rio begging.

    Rocks!… Oh no!…6 – 1 Brewers, top of the 9th!….snort! …We missed some of it because we were over at Pepper’s farm…grunt!….Here is a picture of me out in Pepper’s yard… snicker!…She still can’t take a decent photo!…heh!

    Stover, I hope you feel better soon.

    I'm glad Gracie is eating. Mom and I have been concerned about her. She is probably going to hate the pepto bismol. YUK!

    Sam got her tv fixed!

    Lexi's mom came home!

    You-tube sounds like a winner to me.

  34. Mollypop
    12:55 pm on June 20th, 2010

    I've never done a video but I think the video has to be in some public place like youtube. Then you just list the url in your post, like I did a few days ago for the squirrel flipper.

  35. Siberian Husky
    12:58 pm on June 20th, 2010

    That's a good photo, Rio. You know, it seems like mom and I are seeing more tan pugs lately. We don't know if there are really more tan pugs than before or if we are just noticing them more because of you. We always think of you when we see one.

    Baaaad baseball game

  36. Riö - The Evil
    1:07 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Crap!…Rockies lost today….grunt!… I know it is because I was not here to clap for them at the key moments… grumble!…Pepper could care less about baseball. She likes to make me miss games…drat! … Here is a photo of Pepper being Pepper… heh!

    Gee, sorry about the Rockies, Rio. The Twins won today…ahem. They had the 'big mo' after yesterdays win.



  39. Lexi
    1:49 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Ha! Rio's going to be REALLY mad for the rest of the day, now that the Rockies lost. And we can't find the camera, so, I'm going to post another updated picture up another time.

    Uh-oh. I just heard from Megan that tonight, they're going to take me into the pool and FORCE me to learn how to swim! Help me! Aahh! Rio! Melanie! MollyPop! Siber-H! SOMEBODY! AAH! 🙁

  40. Siberian Husky
    1:58 pm on June 20th, 2010

    We need a Newf to come to Lexi's rescue!! Or, you could just bite them, Lexi. Considering the circumstances, I might bite.

  41. B. Stover
    2:06 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Lexi: It's easy to swim. You just need to stay calm. And, if you swim and show that you enjoy it, Megan could no longer use that as a threat against you.

  42. Riö - The Evil
    2:09 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Heh!… I bet Lexi will look like a drowned rat in that pool… snicker! 🙂

  43. Lexi
    2:12 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Bee: The thing is….I SUCK AT ACTING!!! And at swimming. I'm going to drown, I'm going to drown, I'm going to drown, I'm going to drown-HELP ME GOD-I'm going to drown, I'm going to drown…:( 🙁 🙁 🙁

  44. Lexi
    2:13 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Exactly, Rio!! Please help me, Newfs!! Rio! Time to send in the Newfs!!

  45. Riö - The Evil
    2:17 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Cookies!… My friends friend baked a bunch of cookies and NO ONE would give me any!… grumble!… I can’t believe they would not give me just one bite… crap!…Here I am being totally pissed off and disgusted at those two for not sharing… growl!

    [img ][/img]

  46. Lexi
    2:24 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Aw, Rio! It's okay! Don't be sad. Don't worry, be happy! You'' get your cookies in time. This Bob is for you: 🙂 and this one, too: 😛

    2:24 pm on June 20th, 2010

    2:25 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Rio, I'll tell you something to cheer you up…this was in my morning newspaper…They have renewed Breaking Bad for a fourth season. It is the most popular show on AMC.

  49. Riö - The Evil
    2:26 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Lexi!… You should have called those things “Bud”….snort!…Then you could say, “This Buds for you!”… heh!

  50. Sam
    2:32 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Rio, you look very angry in that picture. It's not just the expression on your face, it's your ears. I would be very afraid.

  51. Riö - The Evil
    2:34 pm on June 20th, 2010

    SiberH!…Do I have good taste or what?… heh!… Of course Breaking Bad is the best show on TV right now… snort!

  52. Riö - The Evil
    2:37 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Sammie!… I was so mad! I tried everything to get a cookie, but NO!… snort!… I started growling at one point and then they got mad at me and the cookies were put away… grunt! …I’m so hungry I could die…sniff!

  53. B. Stover
    3:06 pm on June 20th, 2010

    "This bud's for you" is good but Lexi doesn't drink beer.

    Lexi: Are you okay?

  54. Riö - The Evil
    3:21 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Stover!…Lexi is probably drinking the pool right now!….heh!

  55. Melanie
    3:36 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Lexi, do not be afraid. If it helps, they actually make life jackets for dogs. Some Newfs have to wear them at first. Though I think it's really to make their friends feel better. Franklin took awhile to learn to swim and now he does the rapids. We could see if he can make it over there.

    Riö, you look like you were having more fun at the farm than waiting for cookies. AND, Pepper really looks like pepper!

    Barb & Magpie: No, c-sections don't usually cause what Gracie is going through. She is getting better, but we had to force feed her again, to make sure enough food is getting in her. The vet called today and also suggested pepto bismol. That is interesting paint when it goes everywhere.

    We put to whelping boxes together and now all 12 pups are together. We are only separating them when it's feeding time. Grace likes it when all the pups are together.

    Happy Father's Day to all out there to whom it applies. ?

    Send Franklin to rescue Lexi!!!

  58. Riö - The Evil
    3:59 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Yeep!… Crap! Major thunder right over our house!… snort!… But the sun is out! What the hell?… gasp! growl!… My friend really hates thunder. Its scares her every time… yeep!…She should really take us down to the basement right now!… growl!

  59. Melanie
    4:01 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Now wait Siber-H, we know that you are NOT fond of any sort of water, but Lexi might just be nervous. Not paranoid . . . whoops, umm, suspicious of water like you.

    If Lexi needs a big strong Newfoundland who can brave the pool, Franklin will be there. He can do that disappearing thing and perhaps just appear in Lexi's pool. She could ride on this back or grab on to his tail and get pulled around.

    So Lexi, just yell if you really need him and Franklin will get there. It will be while I'm asleep, so I look forward to see what happens when I read about it in the morning.

    Tenses are interesting when it comes to Chet's blog.

  60. Melanie
    4:02 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Rio – That's one of the fierce looks I've been working on. Looking good, buddy!

    I practice in front of the mirror when Mom's not looking. And I still work on that 'poor me' look that MagPie showed us a while back.

  62. Siberian Husky
    4:16 pm on June 20th, 2010

    I think Lexi is also in New England. Franklin can warp on over there in no time.

    Molly!… I have an even fiercer look that I used on those two today to no avail… snort!…Do you want to see it?… heh!… Its pretty scary looking…snicker!

    Swim!… Oh look Lexi survived her Poolside ordeal!…heh!… I thought at one time she said she lived in Conneticut….snort!… Way to beat the heat Lexi!… grunt!

    Ooooer!… Miss Marple, eh?…snort!… Our favorite is Hercule, but we also like to watch Miss Marple….wheeze!… I just wish Masterpiece Theater did not come on so late….grunt!…We have to get up early again tomorrow and help her mother run around town doing this and that… ugh! 🙁

  73. Mollypop
    4:55 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Rio – Yes, yes, I want to see your even fiercer look. Do you have a picture?

  74. Lexi
    6:01 pm on June 20th, 2010

    It’s a good photo, Rio! I am taking a new photo right now, and then I’m going to post it up here. I need a new, updated picture.
    Tailwags and licks. Lexi-a pup who’s a model now. Oh yeah! 🙂 😛

  75. Riö - The Evil
    5:08 pm on June 20th, 2010

    Molly!… Yes I have a photo. She was laughing when she took this one and that made me even more furious… grunt!… It is the fiercest look I can muster… snort!

  77. Siberian Husky
    5:17 pm on June 20th, 2010

    That's a good one, Rio. I wish we could send it to BP, telling them exactly what we think of them. They would get the idea.

    Rio, We love all the pictures of you and Pepper. Is she Blue Heeler or Blue Heeler/Australian Shepherd mix? You look like you were having fun, sort of. G;ad you and you friend had a good day.

    Wow guys! We just learned that a tornado went through Billings a dozen blocks from where we were standing in the front door watching quarter sized hail pound the Librarian's flowers.

    She was quite concerned about the Gerbera Daisy's.
    Jeez talk about unaware. If I had the cats with me I would have known. Alice knows about bad weather and doesn't like it at all.

    Sad…My friend can’t seem to focus on mysteries or anything really, I think she is still going through stages of morning for her dad… grunt!… I can only guess, because I have no idea…sniff!… But even at her friends house she was not really there. Except to take some photos of me because I was off guard…grumble!…When I am at the farm I am too distracted by all the new smells and stuff to be looking for hiding places…grunt!… So she gets photos when we are out there…crap! … Thank gawd she has not figured out the video part of that damned camera… heh!heh!

    Bed!…I am off to bed. Pepper wore me out and I will not be Up All Night tonight!…yawn!cough!sneeze!…My bed is soooo very soft, I just love it…heh!…and all my soft baseball toys are there in the exact place I want them to be…snorkel!.. G’night all!

    Rio, I just love your pictures. You are such a stout little pug. I am very sorry that your friend has not figured out the videos.

    However you better watch out. Friends have a way of learning things every once in a while.

    Alice would tell you the same thing.

    BStover, I hope you are feeling better.

    I’m back! Sorry! I would have told you guys that I was leaving, but, Megan just grabbed me and BANG! OUT THE DOOR! She had me in her arms while she walked around the pool, just letting me touch the water. And when she accused me of gripping onto her sunburn ‘like an annoying twit’, she made me swim by myself for punishment. And then when she accused me of ‘not being able to swim like an idiot and drowning like an idiot,’ she picked me back up again and started to sooth me. And when I was ‘gripping onto her sunburn again,’ we continued the routine.
    But that doesn’t matter,
    This call for a special Bob occasion.
    🙂 😛 🙂 😛 🙂 😛 🙂 😛 🙂 😛 🙂 😛 🙂 😛 🙂 😛 🙂 😛 🙂 😛
    Not the sad Bob. This is a happy occasion. 🙂
