The Visitor Arrives

Dressed all in black? That was Foster, Albie Rose’s bodyguard, tough guy, muscle dude. He walked up to our door, passing out of where I could see from the window. I barked. That got Iggy going next door. Yip-yip-yip. Iggy was my pal, but I didn’t have time for him at the moment. I barked louder. So did Iggy. Meanwhile Foster knocked on the door, but it was hard to hear on account of all the barking going on. I barked louder still, trying to get Iggy to knock it off. Iggy barked louder still, too, that high-pitched yip-yip-yip hitting new heights. Did Foster knock again? I wasn’t sure. Iggy! Knock it off! But he wouldn’t. Old man Heydrich, our neighbor on the other side, started yelling. He was no favorite of mine so I gave him a quick series of angry barks to let him know. Iggy picked up on that, too. And so did other members of the nation within the nation, some nearby, some farther away.

“Chet!” Bernie called from the kitchen. “What the hell is going on?”

    Chet! Iggy! Knock it off. I already know it's Pet Awareness Week.

    Foster must be coming to spill some beans.

    Rats. I thought it was Ray Jason. It will be interesting to see if my suspicions about the murder of Astrid/Ethel/T3 are on target.

    B.Stover or anyone else with Kindle experience – looking for advice on buying a Kindle. Where, how much, and what is a Kindle 2?

    Foster! I'm not going to speculate…but….but….If I could bark along with you, Chet, I would.

    Barb&Maggie: I bought the first generation Kindle when it first came out and it cost $500. They are much cheaper now. My sister-in-law has a Kindle 2 and loves it. The difference as far as I can see is that the K2 is easier to hold without touching the page turning buttons by mistake. They are sold at amazon.com which is were I ordered mine. They have all of the info you would need at that site. The Kindle has a search engine (type in a word and press "search" and everything on the K that contains that word/phrase is listed). If you have gmail you can go to it on the K; you can also get to Wikipedia and Google. It's easy to navigate and has bookmarks; you can make notes and highlight (I've never done that). The feature that I love is that it has a built-in dictionary–the New Oxford American–that gives thorough definitions just by clicking on a line of print and then clicking "look up." It has a Kindle Store (I usually order books from amazon.com on the computer) and Whispernet delivers your order in one minute. One thing I would prefer is page numbers as in a printed book but I don't suppose that's possible. You can also get newspapers and journals, either by subscription or one at a time. It holds many, many books but I've forgotten the number.

    I think Mollypop and Sam also have Kindles. I do recommend it.

    Rio, I can hear you barking here. To answer your question from yesterday, yes, I watched Foyles War last night. I really enjoy that series. As I understand it, "they" cancelled the show in 2007 (probably tells us a great deal about tv executives), but now have three new episodes. Last night's was the first. I wish it were longer. Michael Kitchen is very good as are all the other actors and the writing is insightful.

    5:27 am on May 3rd, 2010

    Foyle’d … Wow, that’s great news about Foyles War!… snort!… Unfortunately, I fell asleep in the chair with my friend and hardly remember any of last nights episode…. Drat!… I will definitely look for the next two.

    Oh, Rio: The host on Masterpieces Mystery is, I think, Alan Cumming. He was in Emma with Gwyneth Paltrow and Jeremy Northam. He plays the minister whom Emma is trying to match with her friend Harriet, but he really wants Emma…for her wealth. He ends up marrying the Juliet Stevenson character.

    Hmmmmm

    We have been debating the merits of Kindle vs ibook on the ipad.

    The actual look of the ibook looks like a book, plus you have all the other benefits. The 3g version is out now, but maybe it might be prudent to wait until the next version is released??

    Any thoughts

    Wolfies mom

    …who finally got the computer away from the wolfers.

    (He has had a tendency to hog ever since he joined the blog! At least we can now watch other things on tv besides animal planet.)

    Rio – I read Nerve Damage and also had some discussion of it on Facebook.

    MagPie! Sam and I love our Kindles. My Mom first bought the Sony reader. That would have been at the time B.Stover bought her Kindle. Then Sony couldn't support the 64-bit Vista operating system and Mom had a hissy fit. When Kindle 2.0 came out she bought that.

    Of course she bought the iPad – for playing games and reading newspapers – but wanted to try reading a book on it. The iPad does show page numbers if you don't change the font, that's nice, but there is so much screen glare it can't be read outside. So Down the Rabbit Hole will take a long time to read since it can only be read indoors.

    Also important, Mom walks and carries her reader for when she stops for coffee and reads for an hour before coming back. Kindle is the perfect size to pop into a bag.

    Mollypop: When reading a newspaper on the ipad, can you click on the slide shows, or read excerpts from books, or listen to podcasts? (I read the NYTimes on my laptop and can, of course, do those things.)

  13. Barb & Maggie
    5:55 am on May 3rd, 2010

    Bee and Mollypop, Thanks for all the good info. We will go with the Kindle for sure. Amazon has it for $260, so price has come down a lot.

  14. Möllypöp
    6:11 am on May 3rd, 2010

    B. – You can do all of those things. The iPad is the same as your computer screen; it works the same way. The only difference in usage is that you touch the screen with your finger instead of point-and-click. The part we like the best is that you hold it like a book and is much easier to use for reading than sitting in front of a computer.

    To type in the name of a website, a keyboard comes up on the screen. You tap on the letters and then you bookmark it.

    Mom reads the New York Times every morning on the iPad now.

    Mom wanted me to add about the free books for the Kindle. On your computer, go to amazon's Bestsellers in Kindle Store. You'll see many books for free. This is because many authors want to be at the top of the Kindle bestseller list when their book is first published. It may be free for only a couple of days just to kick it off.

    We check this every day to make sure we don't miss a book we would like to invest our time to read.

    Greetings from Vermont. Doing quilt stores today. And the Lake Champlain Chocolates factory outlet in Waterbury, which happens to be next to the Ben & Jerrys factory outlet. Yum. It's actually somewhat warmer here than we had hoped, but still started the day with a five mile hike up Mount Tom. Actually that reminds me, I feel a nap coming on. Wookie

    P.S.- Rio. It was my dad who had read Nerve Damage. Sorry you didn't think much of Mesquite Road Irregulars; I'll keep thinking of other possibilities. W

    Siber H. – Did lots of Huskies get adopted yesterday?

    Mollypop: Good information about free Kindle books. I don't have a Kindle…yet. For you…an excerpt from my dog book.

    Standard Poodle also called King Poodle

    History: A very old hunting dog whose origin is still not well known. In any case, the Poodle was an outstanding hunting dog especially for waterfowling. It was the basis for many hunting and guard dogs. It is bred in four size categories. The poodle is one of the most beloved companion dogs of our time, despite its particular clipping, which is intended mainly for dog shows.

    Character: Poodles can learn anything. They are easy to train, sociable, receptive, and merry playmates with well-mannered children. They are watchful but not vicious.

    Living Conditions: This is a robust dog that loves to run and always wants to be part of things. It needs close bonding with the family and is well suited for dog sports (dog competitions and agility). Poodles don't shed.

    Appropriate for: Beginners

    Oops!

    Two inches of snow up where I live. 70 degrees last week. I'm still down south, thank goodness.

    Barb and Maggie: I've always enjoyed watching the K.Derby but even though the horses may be well-cared for (protect your investments, if nothing else) I hear about so many injuries, some fatal, that I have to think you are right about racing these youngsters.

  24. Mollypop

    Dawson, thanks for that. I just can't get into the waterfowling part though.

    Sooo, another thing about water. Youngest (struggling actor) son was in Boston doing an audition. (Also visiting SO)

    Somewhere a sewer line broke and got into the drinking water lines for Boston and the North Shore! They are running out of bottled water and having to boil water now.

    Infrastructure is so important, yet so not sexy, so not funded!

    and another water story–it rained hard yesterday,our flat roof that was suppose to be fixed, leaked again. The roofing people are back. I am biting my toenails..I COULD GET WET!

    Dawson, Thanks for asking. The adoption event went very well. Lots of dogs and cats were adopted. Husky Rescue also did good. We still have to do some home checks and follow ups to know for sure how well we did. Once in awhile, we will get these phone calls from people that just adopted a husky from us. "Come get this dog. I can't do this." We don't want the dog in the home if they don't want him/her, so we immediately go get the dog.

    Best Friends drove all the way from Utah to bring cats and puppies to adopt out.

    I don't bark, but I will do it for Chet and Iggy. They need our help!

  36. Siberian Husky
    10:43 am on May 3rd, 2010

    I have mixed feelings about Foster. Chet doesn't like him, nor do I, but I sense there is something semi redeemable about him. I wonder what he has to say about Astrid? I'm certain the news will not be good.

    Chet's Jet Set?

    Yes!!

    We can be the CJ's, perhaps?

    We love standard poodles. One time, mom stopped by an land managemet office at 5:00. There were two standards, standing by the door, carrying purses in their mouths. Apparently they knew when it was time to go to work, and they would up-end the house looking for their purses. They carried the purses to work, dropped them, and then at 5:00, they would find the purses and wait by the door so they could go home.

    Then again, they don't have a Mollypop song.

    Cyber Husky – The folks at Best Friends are angels.

    There was a cat and kitten adoption at the feed store where Teddy got groomed. Mom and dad were tempted, but with 5 cats and 2.5 dogs and two boys and full time jobs, they don't feel as if they could take on any more ressponsiblity. They sure were cute. Some of the kittens were 2 weeks old and were being bottle fed. Yikes!

    Chet! The Newf Pack understands about the neighborhood bark! Across the street is a deaf Chow. He likes to sit on the front porch and bark because all our dogs come out to bark back at him. He gets something to watch at that point. Then the 3 Bearded Collies come out and bark which gets the 4 French Bulldogs at the end of the street going. Then the black lab starts if he’s home for the weekend which starts off his best friend across the street the Golden Retriever.

    If I’m out for a walk I can hear the neighborhood bark a mile away!

    Foster, I hope he’s quit or ratting something out on Albie. Don’t like that Albie.

    Hope Foster doesn’t turn around and run. He didn’t come out on the best paw when they last met.

    Zoë is considering the Kindle. We are Mac people, but not sure about the iPad. Are thinking about the iPhone after the Verizon one comes out in July.

    The book has not come in but . . .

    I bought Zoë and Patsy a present and it came.

    Zoë calls Patsy the Trumpeter of the Pack.

    Patsy likes to announce everything, breakfast, going outside, dinner, snacks . . .

    She doesn't want any of the Pack to miss anything.

    So the following dog tag came in the mail.

    Patsy is going to love it and a picture of Bess would be welcome.

    If a person isn't too traditional about Christmas, we think

    that photo you put up of the Newfs in the snow while we were on our northern adventure, would make a great Christmas card.

    The cards we sent out last Christmas had Huskies pulling a sled on the front of it. Mom can be a little weird at times.

    Rio – No wine on my face, it's stain from my tears. Jacqueline from the Dog Salon said it's because my family is feeding me too much people food. It's all fine with me. Jacqueline is on my side about this short haircut. She says a Maltese should have longer hair.

    I like Chet's Jet Setters! I like using Setter because it is a dog name. Otherwise maybe just Chet's Jets. Anyway we are getting closer to the name.

    Sam, You are too cute!

    Patsy that is a perfect tag for the trumpeter of the pack. You will be looking good.

    Dawson, I will be seeing you Friday night.

    It has been cloudy and rainy for 4 days now. I am looking for some sun!

    Mollypop Interesting info about the IPAD. What did that cost? My hubby would like that but I don't want to spend lots of money on it in case he doesn't like it. He too reads the NY Times online. And the Wall St Journal and a few local papers too. Can you get books just like the Kindle?

    The problem with Chet's Jet Setters is that not all dogs are setters and there are cats among the agents.

    The "Set" in Chet's Jet Set could mean more than a group with similar interests. "Set" also means a group "adapted for special use in a particular operation," which, of course, fits the agents.

  61. ÄbbietheKitty
    2:46 pm on May 3rd, 2010

    Dear BStover,

    I know about those cats..heh heh. I just love the word play with setters.

    Call me shallow.

    I see your point about using 'Set' though.

  62. B. Stover
    3:05 pm on May 3rd, 2010

    Hi Alice. Actually, the definition of "set" should state, a group, each member of which is "adapted for special use in a particular operation." (As a set of silverware has different utensils used for different things.)

  63. B. Stover
    3:25 pm on May 3rd, 2010

    Stover!… Here’s another alliteration, “Rio’s Ruff Riders”…. Heh!….. I like alliteration, but not for the team name… snort! … “Chet’s Cheerful Chumps”…. “Bernies Brave Buddies”, “Spencer Says Stop!”… heh! …okay, paws down!… no more typing…. Snort!

    Sam: I was gonna ask what kind of dog you were so I could look you up. Excuse the wait, please. You are way cuter than the picture in the book

    History: This breed existed as early as ancient Rome and Greece, and it is among the very oldest of dog breeds. Later on in the French royal court these dogs delighted noble ladies and gentlemen as lap-and bed dogs. The Maltese is the best known and the most beloved of the Bichons.

    Character: Malteses are intelligent, lively, and quick to learn, and they follow their owner like a shadow. They are alert, but they don't bark endlessly.

    Living Conditions: The Maltese likes to go for walks, and generally is no problem in public. Its beautiful, very long, and very heavy coat requires extremely time-consuming care.

    Appropriate for: Beginners

    Mollypop: I wondered about the waterfowl hunting on your description since you are not into fuzzbutt skinning. This book is not entirely reliable as a certain pug knows.

    Speaking of pugs…I saw two pugs walking around the lake today. A rare siting. One Rio colored and the other black…they looked young and energetic…very good looking.

    Siber H: I think Huskies pulling a sled would make fantastic Christmas cards. You mom isn't wierd. So would the Newfs photo.

    I'm not a traditional Christmas card person.

    Now the snowfall back home has reached 8 inches. Yikes!

    Abbies Staff: Yippee! Will be nice to see you.

    Sam: Your country of origin is Italy. Very romantic. You are definitely Princess material in every way.

    Stover!… Real quick, before I forget (heh)… thank you so much for the info on Alan Cumming!… gruff!… He can do an amazingly perfect American accent (The Good Wife)….snort!…. Remarkable since he has such a strong Scottish accent… wow!

    Dawson – uh oh, my very heavy long coat would require extremely time-consuming care. I guess there's a lot of Jacqueline's Dog Salon in my future.

    Puss N’ Boots!… whoa! He’s got the evidence now, but I was surprised Jack did what he did right at the end….sob!… Seems harsh and yet she had herself in such a tight corner… It just shocked me that’s all… grunt!.. That handsome D.B. Sweeney didn’t last long on that show. He is one of our most favorite actors! … Dead in a little over 1 episode… damn!… (my friend has been secretly in love with him all her life I think!) …

    Cole!… We here think Cole is the perfect partner for Jack finally!… snort!… It’s only taken forever to find one… grunt! … There are only have a few more episodes to go. Do you think it will be back next year or is this the final season? … wheeze!

    Rio, this is supposed to be the final season for 24! We are really going to miss it. We were not surprised by what Jack did…actually, that is more like the Jack in the early seasons and face it, Dana was not a good person. She killed that banker real quick. We just wonder what is going to happen when all the dirt comes out about what the president has done and that evil Logan!!

    We are also DB Sweeney fans…Fell for him from watching The Cutting Edge years ago.

    Are you fans of The Good Wife? Another really good show! Love the duel story lines…new case each week and the ongoing story of the husband.

    BUT, most importantly….Chet, make sure Bernie knows that Foster is at the door. We have a feeling that he's fixing to rat out on Albie…at least confirm the identity of the wife in question.

    Well!… as much as we want to stay Up All Night!… snort!.. We just can not… sigh!… things to do tomorrow, early and and all day long… grunt!… Rockies are ahead 3-1 right now… sniff!…I think I can rest easily… heh!

    Good night all!…Talk to you sometime tomorrow then…. Take care.. .. yawn!

    Wow!… Puss N’ Boots show up just when I gave up on seeing you guys tonight! ….wow!… Yes.., yes!… The early Jack! … I am afraid for him now though, totally afraid… gasp!… I so do not want it to end. Sob!

    The Good Wife, that strange skinny dark hair’d man who is ‘helping’ Peters defense… this is the guy that Stover and I have been talking about.. I think he is an excellent actor…I hate him in this show for some reason (right now).. snort!… But I admire him from afar… heh!… He is Scottish and well, we love the Scottish!

    so tired… going to my warm soft bed now…sigh!
