The Iggy Chronicles, Volume 1

“I understand there’s a new e-short story coming in August,” Admin says.

“The Iggy Chronicles, Volume 1,” says Spence.

“I’m assuming that Iggy, Chet’s best pal but a virtual prisoner in the Parsons’s house for just about the whole series, gets loose at last?”

“I’m not authorized to reveal any details.”

“Huh? Authorized by whom?”

“The IRS now has an Authorizing Division that governs the actions of authors. The accountant says not to upset them.”

Coming August 13 – the Iggy Chronicles, Volume 1.

    Gooood morning,everyone! Mmph…Infernal Revenue Service can’t govern itself, let alone anything else! ‘Nuff said.

    Hope all sibers are out of doghouse this a.m. (Imagine “come” being an issue?) T&G’s mom, feel better soon and watch out for smokey rabbits (he, he).

    Beautiful here in TN, hope it is for others as well 🙂

    Good morning, Everybody!
    My daddy does not like me anymore, so I’m shopping for a new one. Rio? Siber? Wookie’s Dad?
    The hay field was cut yesterday, which sent lots of mice and other critters scurrying. It is so much fun hunting out there!!! Iask you: Who would stop hunting just to come in to bed? So my X-Daddy came all the way out there with the “Meashka-Spotlight-Finder”. HewasHoppin Mad…at Moi! Can youse believe it?

    What is the IRS?

    Good morning, HOH! It is super hot at our place, finally. Mom loves it.
    Chet, please ask Spence to start getting stories out in the beginning of summer, because WE CAN’T WAIT! We want to read about Iggy Now Now Now.

    Greetings All!

    Kat, the Prof would love being your new dad!

    The IRS are bad people who take all the money you work for all year, away from you. heh

  6. Barb & Maggie
    8:55 am on May 30th, 2013

    We can’t wait either. We want more Iggy!

    Hot here too. Unfortunately dangerous storms may be coming later today and tomorrow.

    Sorry to hear you got in trouble, Kat. If I won’t come in Barb always plays the treat card. Works every time with me. How is your ‘rent’s garden doing? Is the coop all ready for the new babies?

  7. Kat
    9:13 am on May 30th, 2013

    Maggie, Mom plays that card too. Every time she said “treat”, I looked for another mouse! Tee hee!

    It will be fun to hear about Iggy. (I hope that Chet is still the narrator.)

    Good morning all.

    Good Mornimg Everybody!

    I R emember S pence thinking about writing about the Teitelbaum divorce. I wonder if Iggy is mixed in with THAT crew?

    Working on the salad wall today.

    Kat, we would offer to share the Old Fart for a new daddy but ours isn’t a dog whisperer, he’s a dog yeller (the louder, the better in his opinion), plus he pulls the treat card AND he has a Lucy Lou spotlight too. 2-leggers, sheesh, how predictable!

    The JST (that is code because I do not want to be audited by the JST) has been targeting Canadians who are also US citizens for a few years now. You do not want to get on their wrong side. I hope the sequestration gets them.

    In honor of BStover being back, Brandy is up top!

    Good morning all. I’m going out to see if there is any damage left by the storm. (Whew! I almost did a comma splice, but just in time, I remembered.)

  13. Tupper and Gilly
    10:25 am on May 30th, 2013

    Kat – you could come here. We can always use another redhead. Gramp keeps looking sideways at Mama, but he’s not about to say a word. tee hee.

    Today is show set up day. The show starts tomorrow(?) and goes through Sunday. Mama is doing it alone, but Gramp is going to bring the Storyteller over on Sat. afternoon so he can say hi to everyone.

  14. Barb & Maggie
    10:28 am on May 30th, 2013

    Barb just did her good deed for the day. She was out by the garden when a stray doggy came up to her, tail wagging. She got him on a leash and kept him in the yard till his owner came looking for him. Evidently he broke thru the screen on the front door and went on an unauthorized walk-about. He is on someone’s s**t list.

    Now time to get some yard work done.

  15. Macy the min-pin
    10:55 am on May 30th, 2013

    Good doggy. If I waited for someone to authorize a walk-about, I would never get one. Last week our Angie was leaving our house and called us to bring two leashes. There were two pretty black labs strolling down the street. When the folks got there in the truck, both doggies jumped up in in and made themselves at home. Turns out they were only a few houses from where THEY WERE ON A TRIAL RUN to see if the people wanted to adopt them. Seems that the dogs vetoed that and were looking elsewhere!

  16. Mollypop's Mom
    10:56 am on May 30th, 2013

    Dawson – I’m so happy that I will be able to watch our boy Pat Kane in the finals. Woo hoo. Then he’ll come back to Buffalo and his beautiful $3 mil house on Lake Erie. We here loved him when he was a West Side scrappy kid.

    Wose – Our poor Yankees – losing 3 in a row to the Mets! That hurts.

  17. Siber-H
    11:07 am on May 30th, 2013

    If we are well behaved, maybe there will be a Volume 2 of the Iggy Chronicles.

    Ditto to what Sharon said about the IRS.

    Kat, I will share my dad with you. He is a pushover when it comes to dogs. Mom, not so much, but all she will do is calmly come get me if I don’t come when called. It is good for her. She needs the exercise.

    Good Morning All

    Sob Sob. Jaxon went into heart failure. He is now hooked up to machines for 5 or 6 days. Then? Sob Sob

    11:15 am on May 30th, 2013

    I will try to upload the video I took of the storm last night. Didn’t work last night. I couldn’t do much of anything with my iPad except read.

  20. Melanie
    11:20 am on May 30th, 2013

    O’Howlers, I am so sorry. Head bumps, tail wags and virtual hugs going his way.

  21. Siber-H
    11:44 am on May 30th, 2013

    Howlers, We are very sorry about Jaxon and pray he will recover from this. Husky Hugs to all of you.

    12:08 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Good morning, all!

    O’Howlers; Prayers, good wishes, and puppy hugs and kisses being sent your way!

    Kat: Finn says you can come hang here. It’s been a bit of a crazy 24 hours since they bush hogged the other half of the yard and all the little critters are trying to find a new home. It’s a bit crazy with all the critters.

  23. Barb & Maggie
    12:25 pm on May 30th, 2013

    We are so so sorry to hear about this set back for little Jaxon. Strong prayers for him.

  24. dawson
    12:28 pm on May 30th, 2013

    O’Howlers: Many prayers being said for the sweet little Jaxon.

    MacyMinPin: That is funny. Will you keep the labs?

    T&G: Gramps is no dummy when it comes to keeping his mouth shut. I love mahogany red. Hope you have a really good shew.

    Just heard fro YSAS about his teeth. YIKES! comes to mind.

    Two teeth MUST be done. TWO days before his cousin’s wedding.
    Both require surgery, one is up against a nerve and there is a one in a thousand chance he could loss the ability to taste for some time.
    I wonder what I could sell on the bay thing?

    Well, there goes the credit card again.

  26. Herd of Hounds
    12:44 pm on May 30th, 2013

    OH: Our prayers to ya’ll (Jaxon, family, OH et al). Our strength to you, too.

  27. Tenzing
    12:45 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Howlers: Jaxon is swaddled in the quilt and prayers have begun.

  28. Rose
    1:12 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Oh, Howlers! I am sending my strongest prayers to Jaxson. sob

  29. O'Howlers
    1:26 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Thanks everyone, for your strong prayers and pawsitive thoughts. Don’t be sad for us, but we do feel sad for the baby’s parents and grandparents. We are sorry to bring sadness to the blog today, but after sharing the super news last night, we felt compelled to let you know of this latest.

    Mom is once again re-thinking our food. What do you all get to eat, or feed your four-leggeds? We are on this stuff called Infinia, but it is still chicken and rice, and we are pretty bored. Mom thinks neither chicken nor rice is best for us. This same brand has other formulas which do not have chicken or rice. But they have sweet potato and turkey or bison or salmon.

    1:32 pm on May 30th, 2013

    HOH eats either Canidae or Nutro’s Lamb and Rice. Began it years ago at v e t’s reccomendation for dog with hypothyroidism. They like. I like low stool, gooood digestion, easy pick-up. Probably TMI??

  31. Rose
    1:39 pm on May 30th, 2013

    MollyPop’sMom: I am completely horrified that the Yankees lost 3 in a row. I can’t help but think that the Mets broom is waiting at the Stadium for tonight’s game.

  32. Wookie's dad
    1:53 pm on May 30th, 2013

    OH — Thoughts and prayers for young Jaxon, but he does seem to be a fighter and hopefully he will win this battle too.
    Kat — Part of it may be a matter of the voice of authority. When Debbie would call Wookie, he always came, but when I called him, he considered it a suggestion rather than a command.
    Hot, hot, hot, here today, but at least the tomatoes seem to be thriving.

  33. FinnDogsMom
    2:10 pm on May 30th, 2013

    O’Howlers: Finn gets Blue Buffalo Wilderness Chicken or Duck recipe. High protein, no filler kind of food. He has been doing spectacular on it. Abi is on Nutro Natural Choice Beef recipe. Still another good food. They also get fed RAW twice a week.

  34. Siber-H
    2:15 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Fellow Sibers, You guys might like a food with salmon as the first ingredient. We once ate a lot of fish back in the old days.

  35. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:20 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Food!…Beau and I have to forage for ourselves…grunt!…No one around here feeds us what we are accustomed to eating every day…sniff!…It’s kibble this and kibble that…grump!

  36. Mollypop's Mom
    2:50 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Rio – When do you and Beau get ‘real’ food again – like when your friend’s Mother comes back?

  37. Mollypop's Mom
    3:00 pm on May 30th, 2013

    O’Howlers – Mollypop’s groomer raises Malamutes. She gets her food from Dr. Abady. I don’t know all of what she feeds them but Molly stayed with her once and got flaked fish. When she came home she wouldn’t eat what I was giving her.

  38. Melanie

    Hot and Sticky!

    The peppers got planted thanks to Deb. I have been working on the salad wall.

    Things I’ve learned . .
    Staples from staple guns don’t necessarily go through what you want them to go through.
    Pallets are heavy.
    Rubbing alcohol works as well as mineral spirits. (Frigging spray can)
    It is better not to run over the pallet with the Honda. sigh.
    Tomorrow I should be able to put dirt in! And maybe even plant! After I go get my blood sucked out and go to the grocery store.

    Story next . .

    3:12 pm on May 30th, 2013

    MollysMom!…I don’t think her mother is ever coming back. I think she is gone!gone!gone! for good…wuffle!…I miss her terribly and Beau still pines for those twinkies…sniffle!… My friend is very happy though, she says we look great…groan!…We walk in the morning before she leaves and then we walk even longer in the evening when it cools off…gasp!…All this walking is not good for me. I just know it…wheeze!

  40. Riö – The Evil Pug

    YSAS and his teeth . .

    He goes in for his appointment and a new student has been talking to the resident oral surgeon and told YSAS, whatever you were told last time has been thrown out the window.

    NOW, they want to cap two bottom teeth, which have a groove in them for some reason, and take out both of the impacted wisdom teeth on the bottom. This will cost much more because a student can not do the operation, because YSAS is weird.

    He said, “Look, I’m an actor with no money! I have Irish blood in me and I will stick with the pain if the amount doesn’t come down.” They go see the Resident Oral Surgeon who IS an Irishman, doing his residency over here. He goes through the same speech. YSAS said, “That’s nice, but I can’t afford that. I have people helping do this and we can’t do any more money than this . . ”

    Make a long story short, brogues were going back and forth, the teeth will not be capped, he will only do the bottom two. Then comes the jokes. You might be paralyzed a bit . . which freaked YSAS out! “I’m an actor! I have to talk!” (Actually, he would explode if he wasn’t able to talk, snicker) The oral surgeon explained that wouldn’t happen. Then he want on to say that in Ireland he was being sued because his patient said he had ruined his love life. He leans forward and tells YSAS to tell his partner. The student in back is shaking her head and motioning no.

    He goes back for his cleaning, and asks if he is put under for the surgery. She said they used Laughing Gas. He asked what it would cost. HE’S LEARNING! It’s free, but giving Laughing Gas to YSAS? Seems to me he would just do a stand up comedy routine.

    Snicker. So keep your fingers crossed on June 13th!

    Shower Time!

  42. Riö – The Evil Pug

    4:25 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Oh, Prayers for Jaxon,

    And for Clarkson’s teeth.

    And for Kat to find a nice Dad. (Maybe the x-dad will relent)

    Going for a nap…;-)

  44. Tupper and Gilly
    5:11 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Oh My Dog but it is hot. Two days ago, the high for the day was 47 degrees. Today it is 90. Sure hope it cools off tonight.

    Melanie – YSAS on LAUGHING GAS??? Is there going to be someone there with a video camera?

  45. c.hobbit
    5:22 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Thinking of Jaxon while painting.

    Everyone notice the new photo of OFA and his two dogs on the Facebook entry on the right of the blog. Great photo.

  46. B. Stover
    5:38 pm on May 30th, 2013

    It’s 90 degrees here and we’re having thunderstorms. A robin is taking shelter under by cypress.

  47. Siber-H
    5:52 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Thanks, C.Hobbit, That is a great photo of Spence and the dogs.

    Speaking of the dentist, mom is driving me into the big city tomorrow morning for a checkup with the doggie dentist. She is very nice but she isn’t funny like YSAS’s guy.

  48. O'Howlers
    6:09 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Hobbit, Thanks for pointing out that photo. It is excellent! Pearl is so big!

    Melanie, we are so worried about YSAS’ mouth! (But yeah, we would like to see video of him on laughing gas).

    Mom says we have to hang out while she cuts grass, grass, and more grass. Sigh

    Love the new picture of Spence, Audrey,and Pearl. My, but Pearl is getting to be a big girl!

    HOT! It is 95 here in the town of Croton on Hudson.
    RIO! Can I run under your sprinkler?

  51. Wose
    6:36 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Sammie, I bet you feel much better with your short haircut in this heat. I may go short when I get wonderfluffed on Saturday.

    6:50 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Okay . . Another lesson . .
    Empty pockets from gardening clothes before throwing them into the washer.
    Sigh . . I’m not planting any more cucumbers or pumpkins.
    Double sigh . .

    Do you guys in the NE have air conditioning?

  56. B. Stover

    I have air conditioning. It’s a pleasant 75 inside.

  57. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:48 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Conditioned!…My friend leaves the air on for us during the day when she is gone!gone!gone!…sniff!…We never get over 75 degrees.

    Walk!…It is really windy out tonight so we might get a break from all that walking….heh!…Someone here does not like the wind…snort!…Plus, there is a baseball game starting in about 40 minutes or so and some green chili on the stove top…sniff!sniff!…Life, can it get any better?…chuffle!

  58. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:49 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Yes!…But what does the real Sammie like her air set at?…heh!heh!

  61. Tupper and Gilly
    8:14 pm on May 30th, 2013

    We have just set up our portable ac so we have a chance to actually sleep tonight.
    And now, since the world is ending ( it must be, because Bee has a mistake in her post), we are going to hit the hay.
    Will try to check in from the show. But it is supposed to be 95 degrees and humid, so we may just melt into a puddle and puddles can’t type.

  62. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:16 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Golinka!…Good luck at the show and try not to get all Puddled-Up!…heh!snort!

  63. Melanie
    8:32 pm on May 30th, 2013

    I don’t see B’s mistake . .

    We have been wondering where the chipmunk had been hiding his sunflower seed storage bin. Last year it was the Asparagus bed.

    We finally noticed! All around and in a stump in the front yard!

  64. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:37 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Stash!…Melanie, don’t disturb the Stash…sniff!…We are not allowed to disturb Beau’s Stash behind the chair…grunt!…It is an unwritten law of nature.

  65. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:45 pm on May 30th, 2013

    SiberH!…ARe you watching this final game with the Asstros?…sniff!…I thought at the beginning of this we would have 4 wins and move up in the standings…grunt!…Now we will be lucky if we get 2 outta 4…grump!…What the HELL!?

  66. Barb & Maggie
    8:51 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Love the new pic. Thank you so much C Hobbit for telling us about it. Pearl is so big!

  67. B. Stover
    8:52 pm on May 30th, 2013

    I don’t see my mistake either.

    That is a smart chipmunk.

  68. Siber-H
    8:53 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Yes, Rio, I am watching. This series hasn’t turned out the way we planned. The Yankees and the Rangers have also had similar problems. Misery loves company. (a great old country song)

    I am glad you guys have air conditioning.

  69. dawson
    8:54 pm on May 30th, 2013

    Rio: I can certainly understand why your friend doesn’t like the wind. Between you and Beau alone the wind could drive her right out of the house.

    Me too! I want to see YSAS on laughing gas.

    And now – g’night for real.

    Well, according to my dictionary cypress (an evergreen) is spelled correctly.

    T&G, Tell your mama Good Luck at the Really Big Shew!

    We have air conditioning, but for some reason, we are always outside in the heat. The only ones who get to enjoy the A/C are Buddy and T,C,

    Those goats, certainly ready now to take over the world, what else could they possibly be up to?

  76. dawson

    It has cooled off here in the hills. We are at 72 degrees. The low tonight will be 61 degrees. Tomorrow it is supposed to be a high of 85 degrees, but we are usually a tad cooler than what they forecast.

    That goat was a baaaaaad goat.

    Time for sleep. Hi to Liz in Oz.
