    Good morning! We saw that story of Reckless a day or so ago. What a great ending, but it’s a shame it took so long.
    Zeus had a stellar day yesterday. Until he didn’t.

    Nice story. Apparently microchips are the way to go. It would be interesting if Reckless could tell us his adventures.

    The three newcomers certainly know how to post for the camera!

    Good morning all.

    Good morning, OH, HRH B and everyone! Great story with the kind of ending we like :) The 3 new Chet’s Friends are quite the hamlets. Mom wants to know how you get 3 members of the nation within to sit still..together? Ain’t happening here.
    In honor of Zeus’ day (sort of) yesterday, have a stellar Saturday!

    Morning everyone. Glad Reckless is back where he belongs. And the 3 hammy pups are cute.

    The tv has a bit about the new Broadway musical of “Rocky”.
    Really?

    Good morning. Beautiful day here. Finally the sun is out and temps are warm. Now if we could just get the grass cut.

    We here totally believe in microchips.

    Greetings!

    The story of Reckless was great! Such a good dog.

    Love the three Taco Bell dogs up top!

    RIO! I am glad the Rockies beat the crap out of the Mets. I do not care for the Mets.

    Sammie! I was wondering where you were. I bet you are so happy that your girl is coming to visit. Now, you will have to be gracious….I am thinking your girl will be playing with LouLou too.

    Zeus had a stellar day, until he didn’t….sounds ominous…..

    Belle Starr, why are you not in charge? You are small, but not meek!
    Glad to hear there was no Giant splorting!

    Hello All–

    I echo everyone’s comments from yesterday and to this point today–are the three chocolates all ladies, does anyone know?
    I’ll have to go back and catch up on the Zeus material (and possible updates about Angie).
    Be well, everyone–this will be a long. hot (90+) one here…

    Reckless: What a name!

    I love the expressions on the 3 chocolates.

    Princess Sammie: I’m so happy your girl is coming home forever!

    DianeC: Cold and sunny here (35 to 40’s F).

    Mom got some new hanging plants for the back porch. She has to take them down to water them. Last weekend, she took one down and noticed all kinds of stuff in there and started pulling it out. THEN she noticed it was a camoflauged bird’s nest. OOPS! She had seen a sparrow of some kind going in and out of the plant but thought it was using it as a perch before heading to the cat food bowl. So, she left the core of the nest in the plant and put it back up. She hasn’t seen the bird hanging around there any more, but has been at work all day during the week. Today, she went to check on the nest and we have an EGG!!! A tiny little bird egg!!! We are very excited about this and hope we get to see the bird hatch and grow. At our old house, we had purple martins every spring and could see them when they hatched and learned to fly. We have gobs of birds here, but none nesting close enough to observe. She would love, love, love to see baby hummingbirds.

    Happy Saturday!!

    BooBear: What does the bird look like?

  11. O'Howlers
    1:26 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    BooBear, that poor plant will die of thirst. That’s what we do to our hanging plants when a bird chooses to nest in it. Heh!

  12. Herd of Hounds
    1:49 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    Mom always waters the opposite side of the pot, just a little, until the birds grow up. Doves, mockers, hummers haven’t minded.

  13. BooBear
    2:08 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    B, it is some kind of small sparrow, nothing special but still exciting.
    Mom did carefully water the other side of the pot so both the plant and bird should be happy.

    2:16 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    BooBear, our mom once upon a time too ornithology classes at Cal State Long Beach. After 2 years she decided birds should be classified as: Birds that swim, Birds that kill and, Little brown birds. It makes it all so much easier. Needless to say, the prof didn’t agree :(

  15. B.Stover
    2:33 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    HOH: I don’t agree either.

    I pre-ordered the new e-story from Amazon and also told my brother about it.

    3:49 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    BooBear , how exciting about the bird nest and the little egg!
    Is it possible that your mom could take pictures?

    We need advice from all our Plunder experts – Mama is considering going to an office store to pick up an ipad mini for her trip and for future travels.
    She has never had a pad, but does use her iphone a lot. Is this a good idea, or should she forget about it?

  19. Wose-the small and meek
    4:19 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    Herbs, I have both an iPad and iPhone. I like the iPad because it makes it a lot easier to type. I do not have the data package installed, so it does limit me as to where I can take it. Also, if you have a nook or a Kindle you gan get the free app on either or both, and read as well.

  20. Wose-the small and meek
    4:20 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    Herbs, I hope Gramps is feeling well.

    Mom doesn’t want a phone smarter than her but she has an ipaw and loves it. Sha also got a keyboard/folio to hold it so she doesn’t have to type on the screen…nirvana.

  22. Basil and Sage
    4:39 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    Mama basically wants something easy to transport so she can:
    email from the road
    check the blog
    do internet searches
    pay bills and do her banking

    Granted she can do all these things on her phone, but it is a tiny tap screen, and with her aging eyes and big fingers, isn’t always as easy as it could be.
    (she doesn’t have a nook or a kindle – she likes real books)

  23. dawson
    4:41 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    Basil & Sage: I love the ipad air. It is so thin and light you barely notice it. (I’m not an expert.)

    BooBear: That is so exciting! A baby bird-to-be right before your eyes.
    I have yet to see a robin this year. I have seen cranes and ducks heading north.

    Herbs: I love my iPad mini. It is very light and fits into my small purse. I take it almost everywhere. My phone screen is too small

    So I spent $200 on a ticket to The Lion King on Broadway– 3rd seat from the aisle center section on the floor. Unfortunately, I sat beside a mother and her 4-year old who was afraid of the dark and of costumes and noise. He crawled into his mom’s lap and cried and screamed every time the lights darkened or something in a costume appeared. Talked non-stop. Mom alternately tried to comfort him and tell him to shut up. I asked her to move over to her son’s vacant seat to put space between us but she wouldn’t. Finally the son was begging to leave and they did leave for a bit. Son continued to talk non-stop the second act but did seem to like it more. He still was in his mom’s lap and would periodically kick me or fling his arm out and hit me. I now have a splitting headache.

    I know the play is appropriate for kids and it was a matinee but the child was too young/immature to see it. I regret spending the money.

    IPawMini!…My friend needs one of those things. Heck, I need one of those things…heh!heh!…Busy day at the ole ranch. Lots of dirt moved from here to there and still more to do by someone other than me…grunt!… Now someone is contemplating a very long walk, just to get away from you-know-who…sniff!…This is the walk she does without me and Beau. She says we slow her down…chuffle!….The Evil Plan is finally working…heh!heh!

  27. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:19 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    CHobbit!….I have no words for your sad experience except these, my friend does not like little kids but she always ends up beside some obnoxious brat whose parents let run wild when she is out eating or at the theater or ANYWHERE….grump!….Her dislike of kids has grown exponentially over the years….wheeze!…She has only met one or two she likes…sniff!

  28. O'Howlers
    5:51 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    We here love kids, but we’re pretty sure Mom would not like sitting next to one at the theatre.
    Speaking of kids, the ‘rents are going to Jaxon’s memorial/birthday in the cemetery tonight. They are not looking forward to this. There is even a cake!

  29. Riö – The Evil Pug
    6:03 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    kids!….Yea, you love kids but you do not look forward to being near them when you want to enjoy an event…sniff!…The Memorial sounds like a very sad occasion – the birthday part seems a little weird, but that’s just me….wheeze!

  30. Wose-the small and meek
    6:38 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    CHobbit! I am sorry that after all the money you spent, you had a bad experience.
    I, too, have an aversion toward kids, particularly when they are spoiled brats. I think this is because parents want to be their kids “friend”, and not parents. Nowadays, it seems there are no consequences for bad behavior in children.

    Back in the day, my mother would have said to me, “you want something to cry about, I’ll give you something to cry about.” My parents were strict, but we respected them. My parents always prided themselves on being able to take us kids anywhere. We knew how to behave.

  31. Wose-the small and meek
    6:40 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    RIO! That seems kind of weird to me, too.

  32. Herd of Hounds
    6:41 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    Mom says she loves kids…sautéed or fricasseed. People need to be more sensitive to their behavior in public places. Just because they are yours does not make them perfect! Sorry Hobbit, sounds like mom’s luck.

  33. BooBear
    6:45 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    OH, how sad. And Mom is sorry, she doesn’t remember reading that baby Jaxon had passed. We are very sorry to hear this.

    C.Hobbit, how awful that your experience seeing the Lion King was ruined. That is a fantastic show and the costumes and performances are awesome. And how very rude of that mother not to take her child out of the theater. I’m surprised that that the usher didn’t ask her to remove him. It may have been a matinee, but a crying child is much worse than a happy chatter box.

    I will try to take a picture of the tiny egg and post it.

  34. Tupper and Gilly
    6:58 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    Mama says she loves little kids.

    On toast. With gravy.

    She has abandoned us to go look at iPad minis. Bet she will be selfish and take it to New Mexico with her.
    Harrumph.

  35. Herd of Hounds
    7:00 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    Oh, toast With gravy sounds good! T&G and B&S…listen. When she takes the ipaw to NM, y’all just get on the ‘puter and let us know how abused y’all are.

  36. O'Howlers
    7:21 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    Jaxon’s parents just asked the family to be with them for a minor celebration. We know they need to acknowledge their firstborn. Mom and Pop would never refuse, thpugh it will be sad too.
    On a happier note, they are expecting again!

  37. BooBear

    It really is an egg, I promise! Mom is just a horrid photographer. But we haven’t seen the mom around at all. Wonder is she abandoned the nest and wee egg.

  41. Herd of Hounds
    7:42 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    BooBear, your foto is wonderful! That is a fantastic thing to have on camera!
    T&G, tell your mama she is a lucky lady to have an ipaw to take with her. :)

  42. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:11 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    Smell!…BooBear, if your Maw touched the nest the birds might now come back…sniff!…Just stay far far away for a long time, maybe they will venture back…grunt!

    Walk!….wheeze!..My friend just came back from her really long walk without us….heh!heh!….Now she is all hot and bothered but she made it back in time to see the first pitch of the game tonight!….WOOOOHooooOOO!

  43. Barb & Maggie
    8:15 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    Boobear, We doubt if the mother has abandoned the nest. She will lay an egg every day till she has laid 3 or 4. She will not start setting till they are all laid. Otherwise they would not all hatch at the same time.

    We here like kids, but only well behaved ones. We think you should have asked for your money back, or a ticket for another performance, if you have the time.

    Amalia, Are you driving or flying to New Mexico? If driving, come by here and stay for a few days.

    BooBear, what a teeny tiny little egg. I hope the mom comes back and that there will be more eggs.

  46. Wose-the small and meek
    8:20 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    Yes, you are Mama!

  47. Herd of Hounds
    8:24 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    Except for carrion birds, most birds have very little sense of smell. IT IS A MYTH that if you touch eggs the parent will abandon the eggs. The need to reproduce is strong in birds and they will return to a nest. B may disagree with my smart alec ideas but I am not a complete idiot about bird behavior.

  48. Barb & Maggie
    8:27 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    People have different traditions or beliefs, but I guess if it makes them feel better it is fine. We heard of someone here who had a birthday cake for their deceased child and we thought it was a bit morbid. A memorial service is one thing, but singing Happy Birthday when they are not having a birthday is morbid.

    Barb had a friend who didn’t have any children so she always got a Mother’s Day card from her kitty and dog. That seemed fine, but they continued to send her cards for years after they crossed the Bridge. That also seemed odd to us.

    Hi all. The parentals are at the beach with an ipaw air. T&G’s mama, go for it. My mom’s still learning how to work it.

    I, meanwhile, am at home, missing them but I like my kat sitter.

    Hope Everybody is well and staying out of trouble, Rio and Zeus.

    later, ‘gators

  50. BooBear
    8:39 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    Now Mom is all excited thinking there may be a nest of baby bird eggs. Mama bird had definitely added more stuff to the nest after Mom had messed with it and the egg is new so she has come back. Hopefully, she will continue to come back and Mom can watch this.

    Also the nest is way out of outdoor cat and raccoon reach!

  51. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:41 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    HoHo!…I hope it is a MYTH and that mama bird comes back to BooBears nest….sniff!sniff!….We shall see what happens I guess…grunt!

  52. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:42 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    You may find it hard to believe, but we’ve experienced Luna’s firm, but loving paw firstpaw. Even though she doesn’t run with the race team, the Giant and the Pixie have been known to put her in the team when young dogs are first starting to run. If the yearling (or sometimes full grown Thief) starts acting up and you get put next to Luna. Oh, the shame!—You and your dew claw get back in line really quick. Luna has a firm, but loving paw, but we’ve never questioned her love.

  54. Herd of Hounds
    8:52 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    Love Myth busters but KNOW about birds and their smell. It the nest was a good nest, the parental birds want to procreate… the nest will be successful.

  55. Barb & Maggie
    8:54 pm on May 3rd, 2014

    HOH is right about birds not having a great sense of smell. It is also a myth that you can’t put a baby bird back in the nest if it falls out.

    Barb walked outside this afternoon and there was a Kestrel Hawk in the neighbor’s yard with a bird it had just caught and killed. It saw Barb and took off with the little bird in its talons.

Anyways, I’m delighted I found it because your content is exactly what I’m searching for (writing a university paper) and I hope you don’t mind if I collect some material from here and I will of course credit you as the source. Appreciate it.
