The Morning After

Hmm. I’ve seen Bernie in worse shape than this, but not often. The good news is we won some money last night. I even saw it for a while. The bad news is how much got spent. It was probably nice of Bernie to buy a round for everyone at the Dry Gulch, but wouldn’t one have been enough? And then there was that little dude with an idea for a start-up for out-Madoffing the Madoffs of the world, whatever that might mean. Did some kind of paper get signed? I don’t want to think about it.

Great Super Bowl party down there! And thanks, Melanie,  for the flea-flicker diagram.

    No, no, Bernie! Say it isn’t so. At least get the watch out of hock from Mr. Singh first. Maybe tin futures weren’t so bad after all. And Spence is definitely right– great party last night. Wookie

    The party was great. The only thing that was boring was the actual game itself!

    Yawn. I’m going to take another snooze. All that blurring plumb wore me out.

    Thanks to whomever brought the Pack home last night. I thought I heard a helicopter so maybe it was Alice.

    Bernie . . . sigh . . .

    I have to say it was interesting using the iPad. (There’s no computer where the TV is.) I see that it changed some of Patsy and my words even when we didn’t want it too.

    The Mac doc is coming to explain ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE iPAD to Dan and Zoë tomorrow at 9:00am.

    I will be out of the house most of the day.

    I assume the Packers won.

    We loved all the party stuff. And the game was ok too. Favorite commercial – sorry to say it Melanie – was the beaver & Bridgestone spot. Pulled at the heartstrings. The pug breaking down the door for a Dorito was also excellent. Glad the Packers won!

    We hit a new all time high with number of posts yesterday. We brought down the web site a few times. Sometimes when we tried to post, it booted us out. A few times we got a wierd white screen with the posting on it. Did anyone else have problems?

    Barb and Maggie:I think a number of Plunderers encountered some blog weirdness from time to time last night — probably a combination of two factors. I think we may have stretched the site’s capabilities to an extent, particularly with so many people trying to post at roughly the same time from the Party. However, I suspect with more and more activity on the Internet in general associated with the Super Bowl event, there could have been some larger network issues affecting the entire Internet that could have created some problems as well. Wookie

    Melanie — same problem here with the iPAD. Steve Jobs thinks he is a better speller than we are (I think Bill Gates has a similar problem from time to time in Word). My name is really tough, as I think I have indicated previously, if I don’t pay close attention, I wind up posting as Wilkie or Skokie.

    B Stover — good presumption, the final score was 31-25, Packers. Although from Bernie’s perspective, easy come, easy go.

    Wookie (not Wilkie or Skokie)

    Game! ….What a great game last night!…Woooo!…. I am very glad to be back home though. Those Kats were getting on my nerves….sniff!…Uh-oh, it sounds like Bernie has gotten himself messed up with another shady scheme….snort!…For being the smartest guy in the room, he never really learns, does he? ….heh!

    Yaaaaawwwwnnnn – streeeettccchhhhhh – oh um sorry, didn’t know we were on the blog already.
    Gilly is still asleep -puppies do get worn out a lot faster. I just got up a little while ago. Mama was up having coffee and wanted to know just how bad the Kats were. We didn’t want to tattle tail (as Corgis, we don’t like to do ANYTHING that involves a tail), but we did let her know that they were pretty tipsy on butterbeer, and did some awfully mischevious stuff. We also told her that Mac and Alice were egging them on.
    So she has decided that the hangovers are probably punishment enough for the Kats – they are confined to the house, but with three feet of snow outside, they aren’t gonna care too much about that.
    Kats with hangovers – not a pretty sight.

    I got home in time to get to the dog park this morning. Mom doesn’t know about the Ipad I bought in Texas.
    I guess we had better send Chet some of our money. I should have known it was too good to last. We will make the check out in Chet’s name only.

    It was the best Superbowl party ever! Mom doesn’t like Superbowl parties in the real world. It’s something about not being able to stand hearing grown men scream at the top of their lungs.

    We didn’t have any technical problems with the blog yesterday and that is very surprising. The pages refreshed quicker than they usually do…go figure.

  14. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:13 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Sports!… Writer Peter King of Sports Illustrated now follows Chet on twitter….snort!…He is using his dog Bailey as his avatar. What a great face!….heh!

  15. Melanie
    1:29 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Riö, glad you made it home okay. The Pack is very apologetic today. Or, they have headaches. One or the other.

    Siber-H: I had fun with the iPad; it just thought I wanted to use different words.

    Snow tonight and tomorrow. Thought I’d sent all of it to MollyPop and Siber-H, but I guessed wrong.

    1:38 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Hmmm…we got to Macy’s early yesterday (thanks, Wolfie) but had too much nip and fell asleep and missed all the fun! Thank goodness the Packers won without our help. Sounds like it was a hell of a party! Mom read all about it and thinks maybe next year we should stay home! Not fair!! At least we have a year to convince her otherwise. Thanks, Macy!

    I think Riö, the Pack and the Herbs (plus Alice) put on the best show.

    2:08 pm on February 7th, 2011

    I didn’t see the halftime show, thank Dog. After reading that article, I know my time was well spent with the Ipad and catching up on the Yukon Quest.

    It is too bad about some of you guys and your hangovers…Chet and I don’t drink. We are feeling tip top.

    Mom found my Ipad in my pile of stuffed animals.

  20. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:20 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Show!… The half-time show was over the top to say the least, but isn’t that what a Super bowl half-time show is all about?….grunt!…At least their costumes stayed on the whole time…heh!

    The superbowl is over but we’re still talking about it.

  24. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:39 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Chet!…That’s Chet’s fault…snort!….He’s the one who put up the link to the article about the half-time show…heh!…Let’s change the subject. To what is the question?…snorkel!

    AMC did not renew Rubicon for a second season. Now I’m really angry. The total stupidity……

  26. Melanie
    3:44 pm on February 7th, 2011

    I have noticed time and again, that I just start getting involved in a TV series when it is canceled. I don’t know how they know I’m interested in it, but it happens a lot.

  27. B.Stover
    3:46 pm on February 7th, 2011

    I wish there was something we could do about it. TV could do so much but it does less than little.

  28. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:49 pm on February 7th, 2011

    What!….Are you sure Rubicon is not coming back?….sob!sob!sob!….I loved that show. They are taking it off because you actually have to have a working brain to watch it…grump!…This is very upsetting to say the least….growl!

    Too bad we weren’t successful in hijacking the mike for the SSB. We could have saved Cristina somebody a lot of embarrassment. That’s one nice thing about howling…you really don’t need a lot of words. W=

  31. Wölfie
    4:06 pm on February 7th, 2011

    OK. Bee’s right. It’s time to change the subject. I want to suggest something but it may not get past the vetting team.

    I think it’s time we have a Mike Baker Appreciation Day.

  32. Wölfie
    4:07 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Yes, you heard me correctly.

  33. Wölfie
    4:11 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Hear me out.

    Mom says that you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. I’m not not exactly sure what that means, but if we are really, really nice, maybe we can have our comments disappear once we send the message. Instead of having to refresh.

    Maybe we can put the sun back into the dark side.

    We were (not to mention any names, Melanie and Bee) perhaps a bit too handy with our canes.

    I’m just saying.

  34. B.Stover
    4:13 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Here is a link that gives addresses to send support to get Rubicon renewed for season 2.

  35. Melanie
    4:13 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Pondering here Wölife . . .

    YSAS called today. For that certain show he does extra work for???? He was put right in front of the camera! YES!

    But I can’t say anything more until the show is showing it’s second season.

  36. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:27 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Clarkson!….Yes! What good news. I wish he could be in a scene with the main character…snorkel!…Do you think I can get this show through Netflix?….gruff!

  37. bluecat
    4:31 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Melanie – can’t wait to watch for him. Mr. B did do a BE marathon when we were iced in last week. Then a Shogun marathon.
    Thank dog we didn’t lose power…

    Hope everybody is recovering from yesterday’s excitement.

  38. B.Stover
    4:41 pm on February 7th, 2011

    I sent a letter to AMC.

    Wolfie: I’m not really ignoring you but my belief is that it’s useless.

  39. B.Stover
    4:46 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Do you know what a group of elk is called?

    4:52 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Wouldn’t it be a herd of elk?

  41. Mollypop
    4:57 pm on February 7th, 2011

    A gang?

  42. B.Stover
    4:58 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Mollypop is correct.

  43. Mollypop
    5:03 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Wookie, or Wilkie, or Okie from Muskogee – The verdict just came in, finding the guy who beheaded his wife guilty. It’s murder 2 and Mom doesn’t understand why he didn’t get murder 1.

  44. Mollypop
    5:16 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Wooks – Nevermind. They just said on the news that was the only charge for the jury to decide.

  45. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:20 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Molly!… The answer I want to give for your murder 1 vs 2 question sounds so terrible, that I am refraining from posting it….grunt!…I just wanted you to know that sometimes I can refrain…heh!

  46. Melanie
    5:54 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Just finished watching The Maiden Heist on Netflix instant.

    Christopher Walken, Morgan Freeman and William H. Macy are the leads. Very funny.
    I don’t think I’ve ever seen Walken do slapstick. Wasn’t a lot of it, but I couldn’t stop laughing.

    5:56 pm on February 7th, 2011

    A gang of elk? Who woud have thunk it?

  48. Jasper the Poodle

    Correct Jasper, that is two words.

    Okay, MagPie, I liked the beaver commercial, BUT Zoë says the whole thing with the bridge going out was probably the beaver’s fault anyway. Snicker

  51. Siber-H
    7:06 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Wolfie, every time you are nice about something, I get this look from mom. She would rather I follow your example than someone elses.

    Jasper, are you ok?

  52. Siber-H
    7:12 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Stover, your letter to AMC might work. I sent an email to the History Channel telling them I would like to see Dawson’s program, Ice Pilots, and I now have Alaska Bush Pilots on some other channel.

    If anyone watches “Justified” on FX with Timothy Olyphant, it is coming back Feb. 9th.

  54. B.Stover
    7:23 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Mollie: What is Justified about?

    SH: I hope you’re right.

  55. Alice M. Johnson
    7:38 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Oh Chet. Next time Bernie gets some money you should steal it from him right away. Leave him 5 bucks. It is for his own good.

  56. Siber-H
    7:39 pm on February 7th, 2011

    That’s a good plan, Alice.

  57. Barb & Maggie
    7:50 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Is anyone going to watch the new show on Fox, Chicago Code, I think is the name? Shot here, supposedly is getting good reviews. Think we will give it a try.

  58. Melanie
    7:53 pm on February 7th, 2011

    I’m going to bed. l know it’s really early, but I’m up and out of here all day tomorrow. Appointments, appointments. jeez. Nothing wrong, just check ups.

    YSAS is still on set. OVERTIME! Yes!

    He also said that the money he made panhandling COULD go to Chet, if we can get it by Riö. He knows it was for the mission fund, but he wants Chet to be kept in chewies.

  59. Mollypop
    8:10 pm on February 7th, 2011

    This was great – Mom got her iPhone today and Sam just video called me. We could see each other and talk!

  60. Mollypop
    8:27 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Mollie ABP – I will give my iPhone review in a few days. Tomorrow is camera test day. Also, tech support at Verizon is working on why Mom can’t get her contacts into the new phone.

    MagPie! – You asked about why a jpeg wouldn’t load. I can’t tell from here, but when you go to Upload Files and browse, the picture will appear below the browse window. Did you see it?

  61. Mollie (a black poodle)
    8:29 pm on February 7th, 2011

    B. “Justified” is based on a book by Elmore Leonard. Timothy Olyphant plays a Deputy U.S. Mashall in the Kentucky hill counry.

  62. Mollypop
    8:31 pm on February 7th, 2011

    James Starks is a local boy from Niagara Falls and played at the University of Buffalo. In honor of the Packers victory, the lights on Niagara Falls tonight will be gold and green.

  63. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:34 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Justified!…. We here love love love Justified!….snort!…..She loves Timothy Olyphant and I love the quirky bible character…sneeze!…I am hoping he is on again this season….snorkel! …It’s about a US Marshall sent down south to the town he grew up in (lots of history). He becomes entangled with the quirky Crowder clan which is incredibly weird and totally dishonest…heh! ….It’s a great show no doubt about it! Boyde Crowder is one crazy dude, huh Mollie?…snort!

  64. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:35 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Mollie!…That’s right it is Kentucky hill country the show is set in…snort!… I love that accent too!…sniff!

  65. B.Stover
    8:43 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Night Melanie.

    Will someone remind me when Justified is on in Feb.

    I think I will watch Chicago Code. Of course, if I like it it will probably be cancelled next season. Grump.

  66. Sam
    9:01 pm on February 7th, 2011

    I was very tired from all the fun yesterday. It was good to see Molly and Aunt Mollysmom on the iPhone. I guess we all slept all day, then my girl said we should try the video phone. I could have a great time with that phone if no one is watching.

  67. B.Stover
    9:04 pm on February 7th, 2011

    What other show was the woman who is on Chicago Code in?

    I looked at iPhones today on Amazon but I’m afraid that I wouldn’t use half of the apps on it.

  68. B.Stover
    9:10 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Jennifer Beals was in Flashdance.

  69. Mollie (a black poodle)
    9:12 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Rio: Boyd Crowder will be back. That show is just riveting isn’t it? That Boyd is just scary!I just love Raylan (his name on the show) in his cowboy hat, & I love his accent. I read the premiere was the largest audience ever to watch on FX.

  70. Barb & Maggie
    9:14 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Bee, Her name is Jennifer Beals, but not sure what else she has been in.

    Mollypop, we uploaded 3 pictures – 1 from Facebook, 2 that Barb’s daughter emailed, saving all in My Pictures. 1 picture uploaded, 2 did not. They all said “JPeg” and were resized to fit. One uploaded, 2 showed a little box with a red x in it.

  71. Barb & Maggie
    9:17 pm on February 7th, 2011

    When did you say Justified will be back on? We want to watch it.

  72. Mollypop
    9:18 pm on February 7th, 2011

    MagPie! Did you see the 2 pictures that didn’t load appear beneath the Select File window after Barb selected them in Browse?

  73. Mollypop
    9:22 pm on February 7th, 2011

    MagPie! That would be before Barb hit Submit. You can see the picture before you submit it.

  74. Mollypop
    9:49 pm on February 7th, 2011

    B. – Guess what! Kindle will be having a software upgrade and the books will have PAGE NUMBERS. Woo hoo!

  75. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:56 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Mollie!…. We missed the first few episodes last year…dammit!…I hope they replay those one day…sniff!…The show is riveting and bizarrely funny at times….heh!….Oh I am so relieved to hear that Boyd will be back. Someone stupid told me he was not going to be in season two….grunt!

  76. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:58 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Stover!… Last year Justified was ON DEMAND. I am hoping it will be again this season because I think the show comes on late because of Boyd and his pa’s behaviour…heh!snort!

  77. B.Stover
    10:02 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Mollypop: How does one get the upgrade?

    Good night all.

  78. Barb & Maggie
    10:02 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Mollypop, No, no picture before hitting submit, just on the one that uploaded. The other 2 had the little box with the red x.

  79. Alice M. Johnson
    10:28 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Barb and Maggie,
    I only put one picture per submission or it moderates me. I don’t think this was your problem. I think your link was broken maybe because of the email.
    Did you save the pics to your desktop first and could you see them when you clicked on them?

  80. Mollie (a black poodle)
    10:29 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Rio:”JUSTIFIED” is on here in Ca. Feb. 9 at 10 PM. Sometimes I tape it. There are some great pictures of the cast (including Boyd) at their site …

    Your friend might want to look at a picture of “Raylan” that is there under “episodes” then under “Cast & Crew”. It’s a good one.

  81. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:37 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Mollie!…Thanks! She will check that link out tomorrow. She isn’t feeling tip-top tonight so we are going to try and stay up till Chicago Code is over and then it’s bedtime, I’m told…grunt!

    Storm!…The wind is picking up and the Big Storm is moving in. Snow starts later tonight and will be the worst at commute time. Mother Nature is a real bitch sometimes…grump!…My friend says she will call in sick-of-snow if it looks too bad tomorrow. …Wooo!…She has had it up to here with driving on icy highways with stupid assholes!…grunt!

  82. Mollie (a black poodle)
    10:40 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Rio: Notice the ring in the shape of a horseshoe that Raylan has on in the picture. Don’t know if he wears it for the show or if it is his.

  83. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:43 pm on February 7th, 2011

    Goodnight!…Stover! I hope you are breathing easier these days…snuffle!…Spring training starts soon! Happy Dreams…heh!heh!

  84. Barb & Maggie
    11:06 pm on February 7th, 2011

    AMJ, Maybe I will email the pictures to you and see if you have any luck. We got them in 2 separate emails, saved them both to My pictures file, then tried to upload both, 1 at a time, to the blog. Don’t know what we did wrong. Not a bid deal, but would like to figure it out for future.

    Will work on that tomorrow.

    Night all.
