    I just finished my egg! Molly’s Mom came here yesterday just so I could have my egg!

    She told me that was the reason she came here.

    Good morning, Ms. Princess! Oh, and all y’all, too! I don’t think Bernie’s had that watch more than about 5 minutes!!!

    Bernie bet on the Super Bowl. (Did both teams lose?)

    Sam: You need eggs to keep in shape for your big race.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning, all! The team crossed the finish line a few minutes ago! AJ was there to greet them and will head home this morning. It’s time for a bit of sleep before work. Zzzz….

    Regarding the power outage: I shall never tell.

    Rebecca: I’m glad the team crossed the finish line but…what took so long? (Or was that the plan?)

    Power Outage? Obviously, I need to go back and read last night’s comments.

    Supper Bowl? Do ravens count as twenty four blackbirds? Did they get baked? So far I haven’t heard a thing about it. (isn’t that nice)

    Snizzling here. Sun and snow drizzle. Very pretty. Also means it’s wicked cold. Zoë had her PT evaluation this morning (before I finished with my coco). No more knee brace! Going to see if YSAS wants it.

    Yesterday I spent asleep and I hate to say it, but that might continue for awhile.

    About to head out into the 1 degree and sweep the deck and pick up poop. Just wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS to the Snowhook Dogs and their two legged support team. It isn’t easy to have two full time jobs.


    Wonder if Riö has a tummy ache.

    BStover and Nattie were very naughty last night. We love it.

    So, how are the hot wing hangovers everyone?

    Natasha and I had dinner at Brennan’s Restaurant in New Orleans. We decided to stay for breakfast also.

    Amazing work last night, Natasha and Stover. I didn’t watch the game. I could not talk myself into caring very much except I was cheering for the team that lost. So what else is new.

    Good Morning All

    Here is a link to Brennan’s menu:

    Food!…Speaking of food. Has anyone sent real food to the Giant and not reported it to me?…hmmmm?…You can get credit for the cost of the food as a donation to Feed The Giant you know!…chuffle!

  18. Melanie
    12:47 pm on February 4th, 2013

    B.Stover: Yum, what did you and Nattie have? I did look at the recipe for Bananas Foster, but when it got to ignite the rum, I thought perhaps after a few months of rest.

    YSAS and SO went to Sons of Essex (lower East side) and had brunch. Here’s photos of their food.

  19. Melanie
    12:51 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Riö, You have my contributions. I am tracking the package.
    Mailed 1/31 from Cranford NJ.
    Went to Secaucus, NJ. Out of there on 2/1.
    Went to Baltimore, MD for a layover.
    Went to Lexington, KY 2/1. Out of there on 2/2.
    Went to Louisville, KY and it’s still there.

    When is the race?

  20. Siber-H
    12:53 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Melanie, The Iditarod begins the first weekend in March.

    Lance Mackey has dropped 4 dogs already in the Yukon Quest.

  21. B. Stover
    12:58 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Melanie: For dinner Natasha had Seafood Gumbo and Trout Pecan. I had Onion Soup and Crabs Bernaise. For breakfast we both had Eggs Benedict and we had Bananas Foster for desert for both meals. Delish!

  22. B. Stover
    1:01 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Natasha and I will have to go to Sons of Essex next.

    My former chair has asked where I got the quotation, “Open Doors Open Minds” for a project that I worked on when I was chair. I can’t find the source. (I may has just made it up.) Is anyone familiar with it?

  24. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:04 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Melanie!…Have food will travel!…snort!

    The Tustumena 200 site has Philip Walters unofficially in 20th place. Not bad at all and if it becomes official there is a $100. gas card prize! The main thing is that all the dogs are ok and the bonus is they got some more experience. (But who is the dropped dog and why?)

    Lance Mackey dropped 4 dogs! I’d say he is out of the top 10 for the Yukon Quest…then again…it is Lance Mackey.

  27. dawson
    2:54 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Melanie: Zoe gets to ditch the knee brace already! I’m sure she feels good about that but it scares me to think of her walking around being jostled by all the weight of the Pack wanting to get close to her.

  28. Macy the min-pin
    2:59 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Bee in 2001, the United Methodist Church started an ad campaign which included
    “Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors”. You did not dream it.

    Macy the answer dog.

  29. B. Stover
    3:36 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Macy: Thank you. I had in mind a quotation from an author. I may have changed it a bit. Blast I wish I could remember.

    I will be without a computer for awhile. The computer is fine, but I am having trouble with the security on it. I am taking it to the computer doctor to fix it. I’ll be back whenever they get it fixed. gah and sigh

    Be good dogs and kats in the meantime.

    Would a Fair Catch Kick have saved the day for the 49 Niners? The last successful attempt was over 36 years ago when San Diego Chargers Ray Wersching kicked a 45-yard fair catch kick against the Buffalo Bills.
    Close game thanks to the clever lights out diversion by Nattie and B.

    B: I found the quote: “open minds lead to open doors” – author unknown. Is that the one you were thinking of?

  37. B. Stover
    4:17 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Masquers: That is what the project label meant. Where did you find it?

    4:54 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Well, I am back. They fixed the problem immediately and sent mom on her way back home with my computer. The problem was they had given mom the wrong activation code for the security the last time the computer was in the shop for the dead battery.

    The team should be home shortly from the race. The Giant has been driving the team back on a trailer on icy roads so he is going slow. Quig, Twig and Marco were dropped for sore shoulders and Lefty was dropped because he developed a cough. Lefty doesn’t know it, but he has a trip to the VET in the near future.

    My Two-legged stayed home today because she is sick, sick, sick. She’s had a fever off and on all weekend and last night broke out in some sort of rash up and down her neck. Jodi, the person not the puppy thinks it might be a result of the fever. The rash has reduced today to only two bumps today.

    Rebecca, I hope you are on your way to recovery now. As Bear said, take care

    5:11 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Siber-H: Thank Dog your computer problemo was fixed quickly. Those viruses are nothing to fool around with hence Protection is Mandatory.

    Forgot to mention…the FOC are Super Cute.

  45. B. Stover
    5:22 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Rebecca: The rash may be from some medication that you’ve taken. I think that you should go to a doctor.

  46. OleyHowlers
    5:30 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Bella, To paraphrase The Bard: Get thee to a doctor.
    We need you and the Giant to be in tip top shape this month.

  47. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:39 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Team!…Our team is falling apart!…gasp!…Quig, Twig, Marco and Lefty are hurt…sniff!…The Giant is sleep deprived and driving on icey roads with the healthy part of the team. Rebecca has the flu!…groan!…Thank dawg Junior is okay…sniffle!

  48. Melanie
    5:43 pm on February 4th, 2013

    I have it on good authority (someone I knew who told his younger brother this old family secret and then got in trouble for telling him the recipe) that you slather peanut butter on the rash and then let it dry. I have never tried this, but I do remember that was the last time his mom ever had him babysit.

    I say go for it Bella.

  49. Belle Starr
    5:47 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Melanie: Crunchy or creamy? I’ll slap it on my two-legged when she’s not looking. Ha!

    Hey everybody, Barb here. Managed to get the blog up, but not sure how long it will last. Busy day here at rehab. So far, 4 hours on the knee machine, 2 hours of P.T. and 1/2 hour of O.T. Last night they put me back on the blasted CPM (knee) from 10-11:00 p.m. They are short staffed tonight, and won’t have any techs here from 9:00 till 11:30, so maybe I can stay under the radar. Enough is enough!
    Watched the game last night. Looked like it might be boring at the end of the first half, but sure didn’t turn out that way. Really enjoyed the half time entertainment too.
    I’ll see if I can post this and still stay on. May BBL.

  52. Wose
    6:09 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Belle Starr: Please take good care of your two-legged and the Giant. Both need to be tip- top for the big race. Hope the four-leggeds on the team recover quickly.

  53. B. Stover
    6:09 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Once I had a rash from medicine and the doctor told me to take Benadryl.

    6:12 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Hi Barb! We are so happy to hear from you. Can we send Mom your way? She doesn’t need the surgery, but she sure could use the excercise.

    Did youse guys see the Budweiser commercial from last night’s game? It was their best yet, and Mom was very teary-eyed. We tried to post the link our friend sent, but that post didn’t go thru.

  56. Wose
    6:12 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Belle Starr: Everyone at your house is sick, sick, sick. Can I still come and visit this month?

  57. OleyHowlers
    6:13 pm on February 4th, 2013

    The Baker Boy is not letting that link go thru. If anyone wants it, email Mom.

    6:29 pm on February 4th, 2013

    We didn’t get to watch the video of Rob Cooke’s team from yesterday. It won’t play on the iPaw and Mom didn’t let us on the big p.c. yet.

  63. Siber-H
    6:33 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Thanks for the invite, Rio. I never dreamed they would figure out the problem so quick and then fix it in a record amount of time.

  64. barb&maggie
    6:35 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Oley, I liked that commercial too. The one I didn’t like was the ad with the couple kissing. Sick!
    This will be our last post tonight. It took 25 minutes from the time I posted till it showed up. May try to lurk and see if that is faster so I may still be able to read for a bit.
    The tech just came in and said I am going back on the machine after dinner. Rats! I have to lie (?) flat while it is on, so will be shutting down by 6:30. See you soon! Can’t wait to bust out of this place and go see Maggie.

  65. Pancho & Lefty
    6:56 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Barb: Did you say, ‘bust out of this place?’ You’ve come to the right place. This happens to be our speciality. You just say when. We wonder if any of the other Plunderers want in on the action to Operation Free the Chicken Lady.

  66. BearSpiritDog
    7:29 pm on February 4th, 2013

    We here are in on Operation Free ChickenLady!

    Dateline: New Orleans, LA – Feb.4, 2013

    Today, even as the Super Bowl banners come down and the confetti is swept into piles, local police are scratching their heads over an usual crime wave that hit the city yesterday. Being dubbed “The Big Teasey” by local wags, police were kept on the run, following a spree of practical jokes and pranks.

    Although officially the reason for the stadium blackout is being listed as “unknown” sources inside the NOPD have hinted that someone was able to breach the high security levels of the stadium and get to the master control panel, flipping the breaker and removing the master fuse. The lights stayed out until police managed to find the one hardware store open in the city on Super Bowl Sunday, and purchased a new fuse. With sirens and lights flashing, they returned to the stadium, installed the fuse and got the game back in play moments before being called to the scene of a bayou bridge, where locals reported a late model red Porsche speeding down the side roads and “launching” over the bridge, landing well clear of the other side.

    During this investigation, officers were dispatched back to the stadium. There, post game players filed reports of missing underwear. Each team accused the other of the thefts, until detectives found a clear set of footprints in some talcum powder residue. Baffled police state that the prints are of stiletto style high heels, but the pattern of the prints lead police to believe that there were two perpetrators, walking in directly in front and back of each other. Based on the prints, both wore the same size heels, were the same height and weight, and had the same stride.

    Detectives at the scene were able to recover the missing underwear, however the players declined to use it for unspecified reasons.

    The only possible witness, a distinguished looking silver-haired woman who was walking her dog in the area did not wish to be identified, but stated that she had seen some “nefarious looking characters” in the area.

    Police were kept busy for the rest of the day, responding to calls about the American flags at the post office and city hall being replaced with pictures of bow-tied Pugs, and a large quilt with “Go Snowhook” embroidered across the front. There were numerous complaints from local restaurants about missing supplies of Bananas Foster, and bottles of Cahors wine.

    A red Porsche was seen late this morning, heading north out of town at a very high rate of speed. Powdery dust trailing from the car proved to be confectioners sugar, most likely from a stash of beignets reportedly pilfered from the French Quarter. Police declined to give chase. “Good riddance” they said. Hopefully everything will calm down now, and we can get back to being the Big EASY”.

  69. Pancho & Lefty
    8:00 pm on February 4th, 2013

    We better have a fund raiser for bail money for B and Natasha. If we start now, we should have enough saved up for next year’s super bowl.

  70. Melanie
    8:15 pm on February 4th, 2013

    Thank Dog I wouldn’t let them take my cane.

    Hi Barb! Stay with it. The more you do, the faster we can break you out of there.

    Now I have to go looking for tha Pack. Mattie read Macy’s comment, and they stormed out the front door barking, “Free chicken for all!” It seems they have gotten the four bulldogs, three beardies, an the golden involved in the chase. They have been going up and down the street and have managed to scare up some wild turkeys. The turkeys have flown up in the trees in the middle of our village and making a racket. Guess who has to calm everything down?

    Philip Walters came in 28th on the official race standings so, no gas card.
    Snowhook Bella: How are the doggies? Especially Twig, Quig, Lefty and Marco?
    The menus that were posted earlier sure made me want to go to New Orleans and New York.
    The latest Downton Abbey episode has me looking up recipes for Charlotte Russe.

  81. Masquers

    Masquers, I seemed to have caused a chicken run.

  85. Whitey-Lance
    10:58 pm on February 4th, 2013

    I am happy to report that all Snowhook dogs have returned home and were given a warm welcome. They got extra beef with thier meal and we all received frozen chicken skins. Marco, Quig and Twig should be fine in a couple of days. My brother, Lefty is going to the v-e-t. Poor chap. All race dogs are resting comfortable, and Junio came back with the right number of eyebrows.

    Puppies! My Lady has been spending time in the pupternity ward holding the little squeakers. Each of us are curious to have a sniff, but she says something about not gentle enough, not a chew toy, and careful.

  86. Staff
    11:48 pm on February 4th, 2013

    It sounds like B and Natasha had a good time. I am glad they escaped Nawlins with no problems. I think they should not return quickly or at least rent a different vehicle.

    I am in on the Chicken run too Macy. Just let us know when. The kats want to go.

    Nighty noodle everyone
