Thanksgiving Auction!

Don’t forget the annual Snowhook Thanksgiving auction (“our” team in the Iditarod, world’s greatest sled dog race!) starting today at 8 AM Alaska time and ending Sunday at noon. Winter is coming! Meaning sled dog race time. Winter may have actually started in Alaska!

    Good morning, everyone! Only HOURS to wait until Auction Central opens. People always find the funnest stuff.
    Have a full of leftovers Friday, we will.
    (P. S.) don’t eat too much turkey and fall asleep, you might miss something 🙂

    Mom and Zeta’s mom have headed off to the outlets for some serious shopping, which means that Zeta and me get to babysit dad (or something like that). Happy day after Thanksgiving to everyone and looking forward to the auction beginning later today.

    Good morning! Today, I am thankful that my momma is staying home with me me me! Also, that she took airborne so she could eat turkey in a petri dish.
    In the last auction, Momma beat out jealous Plunderers for a beautiful scarf with 2 mushers and their teams on it. She wore that scarf yesterday. Bee would be proud of her for figuring out how to do a simple square knot. She also wore a skirt (she never wears skirts or dresses) and high boots. That got quite a lot of surprised looks from the inlaws! Heh!

    Good Morning all! Can’t wait for the auction. Mom is at work but I am allowed to peak at the auction items and place bids is as I see fit (I think Mom said “carefully considered bids” but I think that gives ME the carte blanche.)

    P.S.For anyone who hasn’t visited Snowhook’s website recntly, click on OFA’s link above. Neat, clean look, easy to navigate, nice videos and fotos. Someone (who?) put lots of time and effort into it.

    Belle Starr, I hope you added extra sparkles to my donated items!

    Turner Classics is running a morning of Alfred Hitchcock films. We here love his films!

    Films! Yesterday me and Grizz saw “Birdman”, the film with Michael Keaton. We have nothing good to say about it. We should have spent our money on the film “Whiplash” instead. Oh, well, you win some, you lose some…..

    Very excited to see all the sparkly items at Auction Central. Special hat tip to Mama Luna, and for Rio for doing such a great job!

    Create a good day!

    It has been a day of getting the look from Luna. She says she’s has never seen Rio’s eyes pug out that big. We can’t help it if we like keeping Rio on his dew claws.

    Some items were not initially included in the auction. It seems someone—and she knows who she is—accidentally covered the wonderful items from the Wrottens and Royals up with glitter and ribbons.

    All the items are wonderful! Thank you for making the auction possible.

  44. Riö -The Evil Pug
    3:31 pm on November 28th, 2014

    Popped!…I’m just now getting my eyeballs back in my flat head…snort!…That was a close call but I think we have every Item in its correct place now and numbered accordingly…wheeze!….Time for a SPLAASHHH!

    We hope mom looks the other way soon. Blondie is great at snaking her purse, Darah stands guard and honks warning, I (LLthe Labradoo) type the best and Pookey looks innocnt enough for all of us. So many great auction items.

    Many many great things at the auction. We haven’t bid yet, but are watching a few items. What is the hour, Central Time, that the auction ends? I know Rio, I should already know that.

    Feeling semi-human tonight. Hoping this bug is short lived, and not one of those coughs that hangs on for weeks.

  52. Herd of Hounds
    6:22 pm on November 28th, 2014

    As usual, we are confused. When does the auction close…Saturday, 11/29 or Sun 11/30 at 4 P.M. EST?

    Yes, bidding wizardry! Last time I got skunked at the last minute. I have a lot to learn.

  63. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:38 pm on November 28th, 2014

    Last-Minute!…Advice. Remember there is only one of me running the end of the Auction this time – so you will need to use One-Pug strategy. Whatever that is…heh!heh!

    CHobbit: How did you ever manage to get your smoke alarm to hush last night!

    BStover: Was that the first time you rode in a convertible with tops down?

    Just in case anyone thinks the Red Howling Husky is smaller than the black howling husky, here is a pic of them both together. Both are 18″ square.

  66. Tupper and Gilly
    10:20 pm on November 28th, 2014

    And both are simply gorgeous.
    Wonder if any Howling type dogs will bid on them.

    Sick!…Someone did not take her Airborne like Howlers maw did….grunt!…Gonna be round people, round kids, you need a shot of Ariborne before and maybe after….gruffle!…Or lay in bed for a few days and be miserable. Choice is yours to make.

  70. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:57 pm on November 28th, 2014

    Turkey!…Well someones day of making and brining a turkey has been a complete nightmare thanks to her mother trying to control the whole process….grump!…My friend had a time-line and a process, but had to fight tooth and nail to stick to that plan…wheeze!…She just got that damned turkey in the brine and is now thinking never ever again as long as someone else here is alive – which was questionable many times today…growl!…If that other woman gets up at 5am and pulls that damned turkey out of the brine early someone is going to take me and the Subaru on a very long trip…snort! …Maybe Beau too – although that is questionable in my way of thinking…huffle!

    Grump!…Alaska might be a stretch for the old Subaroo…sniff!…We may have to stop and buy a new car before we take off. All I know is I am already packing my little knapsack for the trip….gruffle!…I’m ready to blow this town and for good…wheeze!

  73. Thieves!
    11:40 pm on November 28th, 2014

    Rio: We will borrow the new-to-us truck and come and pick you up if the Subaroo can’t make he trip. Don’t forget to pack the turkey.

    11:40 pm on November 28th, 2014

    Rio: I just submitted my bids! I’m excited although I expect to be outbid on most things.

    Dawson: Yes, I shut off a breaker that shut off hallway and master bedroom and smoke alarms. At first when I reset the breaker, the alarm would start again. I left it off for a long time and then it was ok. I am going to visit the Fire Dept and ask for advice. I think you are to replace the smoke alarms on a wired system every few years. This house was built in 1993 and so they might be original alarms. I haven’t cooked since the having to deal with it.

  75. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:55 pm on November 28th, 2014
