Super Bowl

Broncos versus Seahawks? Aren’t Broncos a kind of horse? And Seahawks a kind of bird? Uh-oh.


Welcome Fonzie.

    We cannot possibly choose between a horse and a bird. Mom would be mad at us either way. So therefore…

    Good morning everyone!

    Broncos vs Seahawks!

    I know Masquers, Rio, and Beau are happy! : )

    O’Howlers, Top of the morning to youse! A slim minute between our posts!

    Hmm, horses and birds. Poor Chet. He doesn’t like either one.

    And on his Blog, some people will be happy no matter who wins!

    Good morning all. Wish I could send this cold wave coming at us up to Alaska.

    Good morning, everyone! Mmm…wings, horses…does this mean a Pegasus will appear. Wow, definitely classier than most bowls. And to think, the Groundhog Bowl is less than 2 weeks away.
    Let’s throw caution to the wind and have a marauding Monday 🙂

    Another polar vortex is on the way!
    MLK Day.

    Mom says she has been in both Denver and Seattle, each for a very beautiful, momentous event.
    Mom loves Elway, and horses.
    Mom double-loves Nana.
    No matter which team, this super-pot-bowl is far out! heh heh! Sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves.

    Mom has been waxing silly here this a.m. She wanted to tell the Daddy Dawg that the yard was covered with “turdus migratorus” but thought he might think he had to clean something, so she settled for: Robins on the grass, alas!

    Good Morning all and Happy MLK Day–

    Melanie–You’re right–neither horses nor birds rate high on Chet’s list. I wonder who he’d bet against? (I’m guessing Broncos.)

    Mel, Macy (and family), and all facing challenges today–Courage.

    We’re off to the vet today to see if anything can be done about Conan’s unattended-for-13-years teeth. (And if anyone there has suggestions, we’d be delighted to hear them…)

  9. Herd of Hounds
    8:48 am on January 20th, 2014

    Gah! Cover your ears one and all, she just said the “v” word. 🙁

    Staff–Just catching up. Thanks for the link to the pronunciation page, but according to them, Gucci is “Goo-chee” (rather than “Gutti”) also, so who do we follow? Are Italians just inconsistent?

    Everyone–Are they allowed to have two teams from the same (western) part of the country?

  11. Herd of Hounds
    9:05 am on January 20th, 2014

    If it is set in an eastern venue, the Groundhog Bowl may proceed.

  12. B. Stover
    9:15 am on January 20th, 2014

    Who do you think would win, Chet, horses or birds? (I hope they both lose.)

    Good morning all.

  13. Diane C.
    9:25 am on January 20th, 2014

    B. Stover–Just had a mental image of Chet grabbbing a QB by the pant leg in medias res…

  14. O'Howlers
    9:44 am on January 20th, 2014

    Why is Chet calling the new FOC Fonzie?

  15. Barb & Maggie
    9:46 am on January 20th, 2014

    We think Chet dislikes horses more than birds. He usually comments that birds should be happier with being able to fly around the sky all day. And he doesn’t like their beady little eyes. Horses he has no use for.
    Diane, we always thought it would be Goo-chee. It was Wikepedia that showed Gutt{i}. That was confusing.

  16. B. Stover
    9:47 am on January 20th, 2014

    Diane: I think that image is perfect.

    Good Morning to All.

    Hmm…Wonder where Bernie will place his Bet in two weeks…Something tells us he may have lost interest yesterday. Must say…Tom Brady is a classy dude.

  18. Tupper and Gilly
    10:17 am on January 20th, 2014

    Good morning all.
    Only thing we will predict is that Bernie will bet on the losing team.

  19. Herd of Hounds
    10:49 am on January 20th, 2014

    That sounds like a winning bet. Poor Bernie, if it wasn’t for bad luck, he wouldn’t have “no” luck.

  20. Macy the min-pin
    10:52 am on January 20th, 2014

    Barb, here’s how we figure it. You start out calling the doggy POO’chini, so it sounds almost like Poochy, then you can start changing over to Poo CHI ni. Pup will never know what you did. Is mystery dog a girl or a boy? I know, I know, every other word…

    oh, good morning world. The countdown has begun.

  21. Macy the min-pin
    10:59 am on January 20th, 2014

    Quick, somebody get the packing tape.

    “If you can’t fly then run. If you can’t run then walk. If you can’t walk then crawl. But whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.” Quote by MLK – a Plunderer at heart.

  23. Herd of Hounds
    11:08 am on January 20th, 2014

    Dawson, that’s a good one for this MLK Day.

  24. Barb & Maggie
    11:10 am on January 20th, 2014

    Macy, Poochie is a girl. Why would you name a dog Poochie we ask?

    Happy MLK Day to all. Great quote Dawson.

  25. BooBear
    11:15 am on January 20th, 2014

    I still like Gucci!

  26. Diane C.
    11:19 am on January 20th, 2014

    B and M–I agree–chet said something along the lines of “It’s a miracle you can get them to do anything…” w/respect to getting them to drink once led to water. No disrespect to Hilton…

    T and G–Yeah–what’s with Bernie’s learning curve? Really sharp about most things, but that one tragic flaw…

    Dawson–I agree, an excellent quote. The keep-moving-forward-no-matter-what behavior endorsed seems to come naturally to non-human species…

  27. Barb & Maggie
    11:32 am on January 20th, 2014

    We are leaning towards Gucci. For some reason Puccini sounds more masculine, even though Gucci is a guy too.

  28. Masquers
    11:57 am on January 20th, 2014

    MLK Day it is! A kool quote, Dawson.
    B&M: Is the adoption a done deal?
    Thinking of Melanie, Macy’s mom & dad.
    Rose, I hope you are feeling better.

  29. Diane C.
    11:59 am on January 20th, 2014

    B and M–How about for Emilio Pucci? (Also a guy, though)…

  30. Barb & Maggie
    12:13 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Masquers, Arlene is coming by on Wednesday to meet Barb and make sure we really have a fenced yard, etc. She said our application and phone interview were great and the call to the V*E*T was excellent too. Last thing would be for me to have a meet and greet with Poochie to make sure we like each other. That should be a slam dunk, because I always like other dogs (well LuLu was a bit much, but hey).

    We are going to go look up Emillo Pucci. Don’t know who that is.

  31. Barb & Maggie
    12:19 pm on January 20th, 2014

    OK, we looked him up and needless to say, Barb does not have any of his items in her closet. Saw a silk scarf for $495, and a coat for $3,650. Little too pricey for our budget and lifestyle.
    So Diane, how do you pronounce Pucci? Is it like Pew-see?

  32. Melanie
    12:23 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Thank you for thinking of me . . and it’s tomorrow. snicker

    Thinking about taking a walk. That’s as far as it has gone.

    I do like Gucci. Great name.

    Snow flakes in the air. Sun is shining. Roof snow melting. Another winter day in Western MA.

    12:25 pm on January 20th, 2014

    That was weird. You guys might see 2 other posts by a sort of me. I misspelled my email. 🙂

    I’m making granola and it smells lovely.

    A robin is in my garden…in January! He’s eating sunflower seeds.

  35. BearSpiritDog
    12:54 pm on January 20th, 2014

    The Robin! He who Announces the Approach of Spring (One can only Hope).

  36. Macy the min-pin
    1:00 pm on January 20th, 2014

    With Pucci, you would have to go around telling everyone that your dog is not named Poochie, heh.

    Barb, you must have no style at all. Mom and I sit around the house every day in our Gucci silk scarves. I have a vast array of colors of Gucci diamond collars. *wake* Oh, my, that was a strange dream. My $350 Gucci collar has no diamonds.

  37. Herd of Hounds
    1:04 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Yep, call her Miss Gucci and add a collar with bling! There are a couple of girls on the blog with bling advice!

  38. O'Howlers
    1:08 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Our vote is for Gucci.
    Dawson, we love that quote. We had not heard that one before, but we are all big believers in the moving forward strategy. We know The Giant is too.
    Mom wants youse to know that it is much easier to train horses for anything than it is to train certain other 4-leggeds. Wonder who she means…T.C.?

  39. Masquers
    1:12 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Howlers: You’ve no doubt heard the expression “it’s like trying to herd kats”…I will say no more.

    I have a football hangover, but it is a happy hangover.
    What a great day in football yesterday!
    ok, I still do not love football but right now it is the only game in town.

    Greetings to all

  41. Barb & Maggie
    2:01 pm on January 20th, 2014

    We will probably watch the game and will probably cheer for Seattle, just cause Nana lives close by. Who is favored?

    Bee, We have read that some robins do not migrate, but stick around all year. Some of those do not survive. We haven’t seen a robin here, and hope we don’t till end of March.

    Macy, Have to say that we love that collar!

    The Storyteller is in the ER. He is having trouble breathing and has a high temperature.

    Golinka has asked for some Powerful Thoughts, Vibes, and Prayers.

  47. Belle Starr
    2:36 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Bling advice! Now, we speaking my language. The first rule of bling: you can never over do it. When you think you’re done, add more.

    That quote reminded that damn pixie who stole my sparkles of the Giant. To give up isn’t his way.

  48. SnowBella
    2:39 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Creator, Please cradle the Storyteller and his bride in your arms. Please help and heal Leonard. Please calm and comfort Golinka. Please guide and direct those who are treating Leonard. He is special to us. Amen.

  49. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:44 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Yeep!…The Storyteller is sick?….sniffle!…Did he eat something he is allergic to? How scary for Golinka…gasp!

  50. Herd of Hounds
    2:50 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Storyteller and Amalia, you are in our prayers. We hold you both surrounded with love and healing power.

    Prayers for our Storyteller.

    Oh Melanie,

    Prayers in our hearts for the Storyteller and Amalia.

  53. c.hobbit

    More prayers for Leonard and Amalia. In my heart and on my mind…

  54. Wose
    3:22 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Creator, Our friend The Storyteller, has taken ill. He is a man of passion; for life and it’s wonders, for his loving and beautiful bride, Amalia, and for your knowledge, understanding, and healing. Please guide him to health. Please embrace Amalia with your love, so that she may not be afraid. Please whisper in her ear all the prayers being said from her family, your humble servants who are her family through this blog. Please give those who are helping The Storyteller, your knowledge to heal him, and return him to health.

  55. Belle Starr
    3:27 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Wose: Amen. That sounds a lot better than the prayer I wanted to post which can be summed up as: Please heal the Storyteller or I am going to be in a very bad mood. Amen. The pixie told me we can’t make demands of the Creator. But, she said she understands it comes from love because she has the same thought in her head. She said if it worked that way, Melanie and Truman would be whole and Macy’s family would be at peace.

  56. Barb & Maggie
    3:28 pm on January 20th, 2014

    We always call on Amalia and Leonard when powerful prayers are needed. Now we will have to send up our prayers for them. Wose, you said it well, so we will just add our Amen to your words.

  57. Herd of Hounds
    3:31 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Us too. Others’ words are better, but our thoughts are there. Amen.

  58. Diane C.
    3:36 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Amen from me as well. May this plot twist prove minor.

    B and M–E. Pucci was quite the thing in the 1970s–big prints and big colors, and I confused him with Gucci all the time (and pronounced the names to rhyme with each other).

    Dawson and HOH–Curling is quite odd. I understand some local college folk play it in the middle of the night (at UCI). If you’re going to expend all that energy, couldn’t you just actually sweep something? You could do it in groups with Team names and drink if necessary…

  59. Belle Starr
    3:44 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Wose: I am so worrit about the StoryTeller do you think we could offer a prayer at our standard time?

  60. dawson
    3:47 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Pcool and calming prayers being sent from the North.

  61. BearSpiritDog
    4:01 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Oh No! We just heard the news about our Beloved Storyteller being rushed to the ER. Please add our Strongest Prayers to those of all the Plunderers. We are visualizing Leonard surrounded by Healing White Light. May Amalia be comforted by the Love of her Friends & Family here and may her dear husband be back home with those he loves very soon.

  62. Barb & Maggie
    4:02 pm on January 20th, 2014

    For those of you who watched the Seahawks play yesterday, what was your take of the dust up between Richard Sherman and Crabtree? From the interview that Sherman gave on the field right after the game, he wouldn’t get any Sportsmanship awards.

  63. BooBear
    4:06 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Maggie, ruined the game for us! And we wanted Seattle to win. Of course, we have no idea what had been going on between the two of them during the game.

  64. Pancho & Lefty
    4:09 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Maybe Crabtree stole Sherman’s Slim Jims. That would make us poodled up, too.

  65. Wose
    4:13 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Belle Starr, I am very worrit to. Prayers will be offered up at SPP.

    (whispering) I like you prayer, I have your two-legged’s same thoughts in my head. Does that mean we are twins?

  66. Belle Starr
    4:15 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Wose: Twins! Yes!

  67. Macy the min-pin

  68. Wookie's and Teddy's Dad
    4:19 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Melanie — Thanks for letting us know about Leonard. Powerful prayers coming their way from here in Chevy Chase for Leonard and Amalia both. Teddy adds his special puppy power prayers for two of his favoritemost Plunderers too.

  69. Luna
    4:20 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Calling all Smoochers! We will meet in the janitorial closet at the hospital to get out game plan so we can best Smooch the StoryTeller. Please bring your disguises—all of them. Macy, can you spare some dainty licks?

  70. Macy the min-pin
    4:34 pm on January 20th, 2014

    I just drank an entire bowl of water, so I have dainty licks to spare.

  71. Melanie
    4:41 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Golinka says thank you so much for the prayers.

    The Storyteller is suspected of having a weird pneumonia that doesn’t show on the X-rays. He will be staying overnight. He is having IVs and anti-biotics.

    He and I will be in the same hospital!

  72. Princess Sam
    4:44 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Mr. Golinka! It’s possible he could have the flu. Breathing problems and a high fever go along with the flu and other things too. The flu shot this year for the swine flu H1N1 has not been very effective. If that’s what he has they will help with his breathing and cool him off to bring the fever down.

  73. Macy the min-pin
    4:52 pm on January 20th, 2014

    If you are a Facebookie, take a look at Spencer’s page, not Chet’s.

    Melanie: We can do double smooching duty with you both in the same hospital. Wheeze!

  75. Herd of Hounds
    6:13 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Melanie and the Storyteller in the same hospital? They must be twins. Melanie, TY for the update on Leonard, it is as mom thought. Let’s hope it is not one of those weird antibiotic resistant strains…wait, we Plunderers already have that covered in white light, hugs, smooches and pawrayers.

  76. Herd of Hounds
    6:16 pm on January 20th, 2014

    (Lucy Lou here) I’m a bit bigger than the smoochers but I do dainty licks and am too small for a pillow soooo, Let me know which broom closet we are meeting in and I’ll be disguised as a crash cart!

  77. Diane C.
    6:56 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Melanie–I checked in to find out the latest–it sounds like the Storyteller is stabilized (Yes?) I don’t think my kids have blurring or smooching capabilities (although I guess i wouldn’t know, would I) but I combine my thoughts and prayers and streams of healing light and energy with the others. Thinking of you both now and through tomorrow (and always).

  78. Tupper and Gilly
    7:26 pm on January 20th, 2014

    Dear Plunder Family – thank you all for all the good wishes and prayers. We think Belle Starr’s prayer must have gotten through to the Powers That Be, because the Storyteller is now resting comfortably in the company of many multicolored and dancing giraffes. And talk about storytelling – tee hee – he doesn’t do meds well at all, and when he has to have them, look out.

    He will be staying overnight (at least) in the hospital, and they will do more chest xrays and tests tomorrow after he has had all the anitibiotic stuff.

    Mama said she knew he was really sick when she mentioned the word “hospital” and he didn’t say no. The nurses there were very good, and took care of him right away when he got there. Of course the fact that he was turning blue from not being able to breathe…well, that might have had something to do with it. At first he had a terrible dishrag of a doctor – but then a doctor that we knew stopped by, and next thing we know, the Storyteller was getting a lot better treatment.

    Mama finally came home about 5:30. First she had a good cry, then Gramp took her out to get something to eat, since she hadn’t had anything all day. Now she is home and calm, and knows that the Storyteller is safe and where he needs to be. So we are going to take her to the couch, and present both tummy sides up – we know that is exactly what she needs.

    And just by the way – we did hear on the local news that there has been a mysterious trail of glitter found wending its way around the local hospital. And there was a pile of scrubs in the laundry shoot covered in sparkles and dog hair. Anyone know anything about that? hmmmm?

  79. O'Howlers
    7:29 pm on January 20th, 2014

    OMD! We just read the news of the Storyteller! We had been busy cooking and feeding and you name it, and missed all of this. Melanie, thank you for letting us know, and your update.
    Creator, we love the Storyteller and we need his prayers of comfort on this blog. Please bring him home to Golinka and to us, swiftly and safely.
    Kat already blurred on out of here, faster than you can say Jimminy Cricket.

    Golinka! Glad you are feeling calm. It is good that Leonard is being taken good care of. We know he will be fine.

    This here blog has become a mighty scary place of late!

  81. Wose
    7:44 pm on January 20th, 2014

    T&G, thank you for sharing this good new about the Storyteller. He is very special and a wonderful man,

    A Plunderer prayer will be offered at the usual time.

    You mean the “Fonzarello”? Oh Rio , you can’t be that young.

  85. Masquers

    We don’t see The Fonz in the FOC either.

    Oh my, I was out all day teaching some more kids to quilt. (These were two great kids and repeat students. One finished her project and the other lost hers between classes and so she started another.) I was scared to hear of the Storyteller but then almost immediately heard that he is stable and Amalia is calm.

    I also thought of the flu. Yikes. I will still keep the calming peaceful happy healthy thoughts going their way. And to Melanie and Truman and all others under the quilt. I am out from under that quilt myself thank Dog.

  87. Masquers

    Spence said welcome Fonzie this morning, but we don’t see a dog by that name. I think that is the question asked by several of us.

    So glad Leonard is feeling better. That was scary!

    Sneeze!…I thought der was gonna be a prayer here tonight..sniff!snuff!…Am I early?

    Darling little mini donkey.

    Thank you for the prayer. Hope The Storyteller is resting peacefully tonight and can go home tomorrow. Maybe he can visit Melanie first. You are both in our thoughts tonight.

    Creator, we gather here this evening to give thanks for the gifts you give us each day. We are awed and humbled by these magnificent gifts—breath, life, the sun that wakes us each day, and allows us to clearly see the path we take in life. This glorious sun, that restores the vibrancy of our bodies, that stirs animals from their deep sleep, and the plants who turn their faces toward the sun. We are awed and humbled by the beauty of the stars that glitters in the dark velvet sky, a blanket of comfort and dreams.

    Creator, today our friend, Leonard, The Storyteller has fallen ill. Leonard is a man of great passion and respect—for life and all it’s wonders, for his loving and beautiful bride, Amalia, and for your knowledge, understanding, and the great power of your healing.

    Creator, today we come to you in a time of despair, our hearts heavy. We lift our tear-filled eyes and hands to you, with the hope that our collective whispered prayers will be heard, and that in return, we will receive your grace, your love, your guidance , your gift of healing.

    On this night, we, your humble servants lift our prayers to you, with the hope that you will lay your healing hands on our friend Leonard , and guide him to health. Please embrace Amalia with your love, so that she may not be afraid. Please light the path of knowledge of those who tend The Storyteller so that they may return him to health. Please whisper in Amalia’s ear all the prayers being said by her family, your humble servants, who she has come to know through this blog.

    Creator, you are generous with your gifts and love, and we are grateful. Tonight we ask even more of you. We ask that you also offer comfort to our friend Macy’s family during their own difficult and emotional time in their lives. We ask that you lay your healing hands on our friend Truman, to restore him to the good health he once enjoyed. Please keep Karen and BooBear in the warmth of your heart, comfort and reassure them until Truman comes back to them healthy and strong, so that they may be a complete family once again.

    And please, Creator, light clearly the path of those who are treating our friend Melanie, so that they may know the truth of her illness, bring her relief from pain, and restore strength to her body. Comfort Zoe with your loving embrace, and calm her fears. Please bless the Pack, who are loved by Melanie and Zoe.

    Creator, we are truly grateful for your daily gifts. We are grateful for our blood families, and the family we have become on the blog. We thank you for listening to our prayers, guidance, and love.

    Rose – thank you for the lovely words.

    All of you have helped so much today. This illness came on so very suddenly and so dramatically. It was scary, but we think the worst is behind us. But it was good to feel all the support today, it really was.

    And now on to another day….goodnight all.

    Oh – and Rio – that cabin in the woods is just as we thought too – except in our version, said cabin is on a beach, with warm waves washing up to the doorstep instead of cold snow.

  124. Masquers

    Checkpoints!…Only 815.00 needed to fully fund all the checkpoints….zow!…That is amazing stuff!! I wish we had a mini-Boutique, or mini-Auction to raise that last bit of Moolah…sniff!…But alas, Auction Central is locked up and the Boutique is closed for repairs…wuffle!…I am at a loss. Beau and I have forfeited all of our treaty money till the year 2019….gasp!cough!

    Wose: you might want to rethink your offer to share the cabin with a certain farting pug. Just saying… (think before you speak)

    (report from the Lucy Fur…er :Lou) As we thought, no one is looking for a smoocher disguised as a crash cart with an “Out of Order” sign on it. Lots of dainty kisses to Leonard and so many others in need. We are staying the night so that when Melanie arrives tomorrow, we will be in the corner to give her “kisses sweeter than wine”. Nighty night.

  129. Masquers
    10:04 pm on January 20th, 2014

    What a day this has been! And what beautiful prayers! I am so happy that the story teller is feeling better. I am worrit bout Melanie, and will be relieved when we get the results.

    Staff says she will update the Bootie fund in the a.m. We did get two more donations today and still have 40.00 available for a matching grant. If we get that 40 dollar matched we will be at 1000.00 and the donor who puts us at or over 1000.00 gets a wonderful custom set of dragonfly or butterfly earrings from Tupper and Gilly. Or a necklace of the same.

    oooooooo Sounds good to me… See you on the flip side.

    Here is a video for Rio. I know how much he LOVES my video’s
