    Good morning Bee. We tried to watch the livestream, but when we clicked on the arrow all we got was a black screen.

    Beautiful fall day here in Woodstock, IL.

    Good morning. The walk/run was beautiful. Clover, field daisies and Newfs. What’s better than that?

    The Pack is all asleep. They run about 4 miles while we walk 1/2 mile. It’s great.

    Had some problems here this morning. Luckily my sister was able to come and sit with Dan while we got out. Things are better now.

    MARK THE CALENDAR! October 4th. The second episode of “Elementary” on CBS. The episode is called, “While You Were Sleeping”.

    YSAS is the dead body!!

    He saw a trailer for it, but I haven’t been able to find it. He said it was weird to see himself on TV as a dead body and everyone staring at him.

    Melanie: I’d say to tell YSAS to knock ’em dead, but I think that exactly what he got paid for in his role. How exciting! I feel a big break coming on!

    I’ve been working in the garden.

    Good afternoon all.

    I am actually going to stay awake that night! Watch it when everyone else watches it!

    Watching PSQA, he’s doing a good job. Has anyone read any books from the other dude? William Kent Kruger?

  8. Melanie
    12:55 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Whoops, that should be “Krueger”.

    12:57 pm on September 16th, 2012

    I lost patience and stopped watching the Atria video because the woman is going on and on. There’s no way to fast forward. I’ve never read the other author.

    1:01 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Hmmm, I just mute it and do something else on the computer and then un-mute it when Spencer is on.

    In other words, I cheat.

  11. B.Stover

    I try that Melanie.

    Melanie: A television debut party sounds like a wonderful plan! I will bring the chips. 😉

  13. Melanie
    1:18 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Need a good dip for those chips! I must needs do some sort of work around here.

    1:34 pm on September 16th, 2012

    We weren’t able to watch the entire interview because the computer, for reasons unknown, went into overload.
    B: I agree. From what we saw of it, the hostess monopolized the interview. Spence and the other author were purrfectly capable of explaining story lines and techniques without her constant intervention.
    Melanie! This is exciting news! YSAS will actually be the subject of attention, not merely an extra. He’s moving up, moving up. A party sounds great!

  15. bluecat
    2:00 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Hi all. Spence does a good job in the interview, but we lost it partway through also.

    We like William Kent Krueger’s books. Try the first one in the Cork O’Connor series; the characters develop as does concern for the environment. You’ll enjoy the cultural tension – Cork is part Irish, part Anishinaabe Indian.

    Oh, Staff. Dad has a motto:
    when in doubt – cut it out, which leads to:
    don’t worry – it’ll leaf out again (!)

    Melanie – BE returns this evening. Can you tell me if YSAS is any of the episodes? We’ll DVR it as well as Elementary. Cool beans.

    With wishes for a successful tour for Spence and safe travel for all on the road.

    Siber-H – your comment about page 80 is right on 🙂

    2:11 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Gah!…We are watching the interview but that woman is driving me nuts!…grump!…She interrupted Spencer for dawgs sake and told her own stupid story…grrrrrr!

  18. Barb & Maggie
    2:13 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Sounds like we didn’t miss much.

    Rio, Loved the pictures of you and Beau.

    DIL printed out the badges that Staff emailed but she said they are about 2 or 3 times bigger than a normal badge. Is that how they normally come out or is there something else she should do?

    Barb has been out spending more money and now she needs a nap. BBL

    Bluecat, It was Macy that discovered page 80. I was zoned out watching the Rockies lose another baseball game.

    I marked Oct. 4 on the Calendar! Did someone mention a party?

  20. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:21 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Chair!…Is that other author’s chair higher than Spencer’s or – oh wait! Spencer is sitting a lot lower because he is so short to begin with!…heh!heh!

  21. Melanie
    2:22 pm on September 16th, 2012

    So titles that might fit Chet and Bernie in the Bayou . .

    Do they have Hush Puppies down there? Not the s*h*o*e but the biscuits?

    If so, I start with “Hush Puppy.”

  22. SnowBella
    2:23 pm on September 16th, 2012

    SiberH: I might be talked into sharing the salmon that was given to me—caught directly from the Yukon River—to the party if you’re interested. The team loves fish although they usually eat a whole fish. Jackson likes rancid fish heads the best. To each their own.

  23. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:23 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Boring!….That other author combined with that awful woman is BORING!…grump!…Get back to Spencer and his interesting stuff…sniff!

  24. bluecat
    2:25 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Oops. Sorry, Macy. You were on top of it and by the time I caught up on the blog, my eyes were even more crossed.

  25. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:30 pm on September 16th, 2012

    GAH!…SHUT-UP! for dawgs sake….grumble!

  26. Siber-H
    2:30 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Yummy, Thanks Rebecca! I am very interested. WOW! Sslmon caught from the Yukon! I woulds share with Alice because she always shares her salmon bonbons with me.

  27. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:31 pm on September 16th, 2012

    BluKat!…I’m not talking about YOU…snort!…I’m talking about the lady who is “interviewing” Peter and Kurt….grump!

  28. Siber-H
    2:31 pm on September 16th, 2012

    You guys are talking me out of watching that video.

  29. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:46 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Video!…Watch it SiberH, because eventually she does let Spencer speak…hmmmphf!…And of course that is very worth while…snorkel!

  30. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:50 pm on September 16th, 2012

  34. Tupper and Gilly
    3:06 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Gilly here – cuz Tupper is in disgrace. The folks came home late last night, all peaceful and stress free. They took us for our last walk of the night. I was on a leash cuz I do get just a little crazy, and the Siber side of me won’t come when called. Little Miss Prissy Butt….ummm… I mean Tupper doesn’t have to be on leash, cuz she “can be trusted”.
    Well, last night , she trusted herself right off into the bushes where a skunk was lurking. She did come when Mama called, so she didn’t get the full blast, but she did get a snootful; just her face, but that’s bad enough!
    So she has now had two baths, and the folks are at the laundromat washing her blanket and the towels they used to dry her and the rug she was on etc.
    For once- I was the good doggie!
    Tupper’s in truuuu-bbblle
    Tee hee

  35. Siber-H
    3:23 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Good Girl, Tupper
    oops, Mom just gave me a dirty look.
    Mom says to tell you that the smell will all fade in time. It really does.

  36. OleyHowlers
    3:29 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Tupper, tell your mama that there are good recipes on the web for getting rid of skunk smell. Here is one:

    What is page 80? We are reading on the Kindle and it gives location, rather than page.

  37. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:35 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Interview!….We just finished watching the full video and it was truly worth the time you have to listen to that lady speak and interupt…sniff!…Eventually the authors did get to say their piece and they gave away books at the end!…heh!…They never called my number so I didn’t win anything…grunt!

    Spencer!…He just couldn’t help himself he had to relate the puke story in A Fistfull Of Collars…gah!…My friend had to close the book after reading that part. She was green and getting greener….heh!heh!….Spencer brought all that back up again….wheeze!

  38. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:40 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Skunked!….Awwwww Tupper!….heh!snort!heh!….That is pretty funny. Now you have to live with yourself forever and ever and ever till that smell goes away…sniff!sniff!

    High winds so it is raining leaves up here. As soon as it calms down, I need to start raking. Bare trees without snow are so depressing–not that I want snow right now.

    On today’s walk, hunters were out and about. I kept whistling and talking because I was afraid that my brown fleece jacket was too moose-colored for comfort. And Sadie is so much lower to the ground than most dogs I thought she’d be mistaken for a spruce hen. Fortunately gunfire makes the dogs nervous so they stuck close to me instead of exploring far afield. Recently two people in the state were killed in hunting accidents so I need to do more planning as to where and when to walk. It is hard to give up hiking because all too soon there will be a good 3-4 months that we can’t. There must not be skunks up here as I and the dogs have never encountered one. Another reason to live up here (along with no snakes and no ticks).

    3:48 pm on September 16th, 2012

    SiberH!…Towards the front of the video they mention one of our favorites, In Our Wildest Dreams….heh!…Funny how that story lead to the setting of the Chet n’ Bernie mysteries…snort!snort!

  41. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:49 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Wrong!…The title is Their Wildest Dreams not the other one I mentioned…grunt!

    Next from The Royals’ Mum and Da,
    We walked outside this morning and were surrounded by dozens of butterflies. I couldn’t get pictures as they were flying and twirling, but then we walked by this tree, and realized that there were literally hundreds of them hanging in the leaves. We counted about 20 just on this one branch. Tried to get as many in as possible.

  48. Tupper and Gilly
    4:18 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Howlers – thanks for the link. Unfortunately – that remedy can’t be used on the dog’s face, and that’s just where Tup got hit.
    The orange box place has a “all natural skunk smell remover that is safe to apply directly to the dog’s coat” and “doesn’t leave a sticky residue”. The problem? It is only available by ordering ONLINE and will be delivered in a week to 10 days.
    A WEEK? To TEN DAYS???
    I ask you….

  49. Melanie
    4:18 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Last for C.Hobbit . . Just don’t let Chet see you.

    C Hobbit – how about a bright lime green vest with orange stripes?

    Howlers – page 80 is in chapter 8 and 26% on my Kindle. I don’t know if percentages change with font size. Mom was surprised when she opened the box from Amazon and discovered AFOC in hard back. She forgot she ordered both HB and Kindle. She has memory like a sieve.

    Nice picture and thanks, Melanie.

    4:23 pm on September 16th, 2012

    BlueKat, I believe YSAS was in two episodes this season.
    He was a bootlegger in both.
    One you can see his face but it’s dark.
    Second you see the group he is with is unloading kegs from a boat. You can’t see his face in that. He wasn’t sure when they are because BE never really says.

    Barb&MagPie, harvested, cleaned, cut up and froze the onions. Thank you so much.

  53. c.hobbit
    4:24 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Bluecat: lime green with orange stripes would be perfect. Now to find one. I had been wearing my neon orange vest but I blended in too much with the autumn trees. Neon pink would work too if I wasn’t to embarrassed to wear it.

  54. Melanie
    4:25 pm on September 16th, 2012

    “Midnight in the Garden of Dogs and Kats”

  55. Siber-H
    4:31 pm on September 16th, 2012

    T&G Since it is just on Tupper’s face. I would just use some soap and water like you have done. Mom has used all sorts of different products and home remedies, and they all work about the same. They don’t work very well.
    Mom has had freshly skunked dogs in both her house and vehicles.
    The smell will fade completely in time and it doesn’t take that long.

  56. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    4:37 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Tupper, don’t worry you pretty little head. You will survive; I have first paw (or should I say full face) experience with that particular subject matter myself. Although I have learned to stay away from the squirrels with the striped tails.

    Regarding the other author (Krueger); my dad has one of his books but it is unfortunately buried in his every growing “to read” pile. The guy has a pretty good reputation and my dad thinks he won at least one (and maybe two) Edgars.

    Melanie, A star is born!!!

    Tupper, yuck skunk! Sorry you have the stink on you.

    Bear, hello back at you from your early morning post!

    C.Harris, a pink vest would look lovely with a pink SK!

    Rio! I loved your pictures! You looked like a true big brother to Beau.
    Oh, please check your SDD when able.

    5:10 pm on September 16th, 2012

  59. Barb & Maggie
    5:32 pm on September 16th, 2012

    When Kelly was little she eat hush puppies at a restaurant and really liked them. However, she couldn’t remember their name so she would call the Shush Doggies. Makes sense to a 3 year old.

    Barb is making a pot roast dinner with turnips, potatoes, carrots and onions. It smells wonderful but she is taking it over to Josh and Jessica’s as they worked all day. I hope she brings me some leftovers!

    First Tupper was the bad doggie getting skunked. NOW look what she is up to. I TOLD her that smoking would stunt her growth….

  66. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:46 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Title!…Those are hard unless you know something about the story…sniff!…This is where we always fall short, but not as short as Spencer…heh!heh!

  67. Melanie
    6:51 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Riö, Spencer did mention that sometime the title doesn’t really go with the story. AND if we come up with something maybe we’ll help him through a writer’s block. SNICKER

    Also it’s just fun.

    When I came up with “Blue Howlou” I decided to listen to Linda Ronstadt’s Blue Bayou. Now I’ve just been playing her on youtube. Right now, it’s Tracks of my Tears.

  68. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:54 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Seriously!…I think all of the titles so far have made sense to the story…grunt!…I do not remember him saying that in the interview, actually…sniff! …So the story is actually going to be set in the swamplands?…shuddddddder!

  69. Wose
    6:58 pm on September 16th, 2012

My friend will not have to be at the busy-screwed-up-damned-place on Oct. 4th…heh!…She says she will actually have “time-off” that day and then next…Woooo!…So we will definitely be sitting in front of the TV waiting to see Clarkson play dead…snorkel!…I can’t wait! For more than one reason…heh1

    We’ve battened down the corgis, but perhaps we should set to building an ark. CHH, I don’t know about you, but we have higher winds than normal and is hasn’t stopped raining since yesterday. Our corner of the world is soaked through and blustery. We have our phones charged and water stored for the dogs; I wouldn’t be surprised if we lose power.

    Wose: I have been on the road all week for work so I tried to take photos of Belle Starr last night, but she is soaking wet, and (she’ll hate me for saying this) doesn’t look as cute as she normally does. I’ll have to wait until she dries and fluffs out a bit.

    SiberH: We can share with everyone. It is a real treat.

  82. Melanie

    Before I forget, I want to thank Golinka for sending our prayers, hopes, concern and cares to sea with reverance. Thank you. I also want to thank Dawson for including Snowhook in the prayers; our hopes and prayers are the same.

    I would have pegged Gilly to have a wild side over Tupper, but I’ve been wrong before. I do think we need to invest in a couple of nicotine patches for Tupper, though.

    The Rockies almost won.

    Now for Wookie’s team. They will win for sure with us cheeering them on.

    Rebecca, I don’t know if I am into that much sharing.

    Nicotine!…Patches!…heh!snort!heh!…Good one Rebecca.

    Walk!…Well we went on our long walk and then her mother wanted to sit out on the patio and recount everything she had already told us about what she found out about the mourning neighbors…sniff!…My friend made us all stay out and listen once again to the gossip…grunt!

    Nationals!…Uh oh! Looks like the Braves are ahead of Wookie’s team so far…sniff!…But only by 2 and it is early innings…heh!

    Broadway!…Or Bust is on again tonight!…snort!…The second show of a documentary following highschool “stars” who want to land in a Broadway show one day…snort!…Boy are these guys talented for teens. This is on our public tv channel…chuffle!

    Rio, we thought they were really cool. We’re thinking about offering a set on the next Snowhook boutique or auction. They come in 3 different sizes and can be personalized with whatever the buyer wanted. Also color choice is available.

    Rio. Thanks, just remember to root hard for the Nationals; they have lost two in a row.

    Also, on our walk today, we met the cutest little black pug puppy; her name was Lucy. Could have been Beau’s little baby sister.

    Puppy!…Pug puppies are really cute and then something happens after that…sniff!… Suddenly they are not so cute…heh!…Except for me. My friend still thinks I am cute, but she thinks Beau is cute too, so I don’t think she is the best one to ask…gruffle!

    SiberH: Perhaps we should make up a code word for the party that means ‘meet me out back for a bite of salmon.’

    G&BB: The blocks are great! I am so glad you got to see Spence again. He really is such a nice man.

  94. Macy the Min-Pin
    9:47 pm on September 16th, 2012

    We too love the blocks.

    Tupper, dont let them take away your seegars, I happen to be fond of that kind myself, if I’m seeing them right. Would love to have one right about now. We just finished FOC, sigh. When y’all get the book don’t forget to check out page 80.

    Masquers I guess we are even, Seahawks 1 Rangers 1.

    Mom still has Bronchitis so I better get her to go take her fistful of pills and go to bed. Niters!

    Wookie!..What a great night for us to be able to watch your team play…snort!.. It is Bark In The Park Night at the ole ball park…chorkel!…All us guys are allowed in to watch the game…wooooooo!

    Macy: Take two cookies and call me in the morning. Hope you’re feeling tip top in no time.

    Eighty!…I don’t get the whole page 80 thing as a tribute to Golinka…grunt!…One day someone will have to explain that to me…sniff!

  100. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:53 pm on September 16th, 2012

    One-seventy-nine!…On this page someone is mentioned who drinks too much beer, is this a tribute to me!me!me!?…heh!heh!…I think not.

  101. Tupper and Gilly
    9:53 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Good evening all. Tupper the Mortified here. Dont know what got into me. First, chasing some (black and white striped) tail off into the bushes, then hanging around the house, buck nekkid with my (bully stick) stogey.

    But, the wild side is back undercover, and the dignified Royal side is back.
    Now, if Gilly would just stop snickering. She better not tell those Wrotten Kats when we get home….

  102. Macy the Min-Pin
    9:55 pm on September 16th, 2012

    But everyone know that after AFOC comes For A Few Collars More.

  103. SnowBella
    9:57 pm on September 16th, 2012

    G&BB: Checked and thank you for sharing.

  104. Gus & BooBear
    9:59 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Macy, you are absolutely right!! What were we thinking?

  105. Macy the Min-Pin
    10:00 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Perhaps tribute isn’t the right word, maybe hat tip is more like it.

    Oh, my, no Tupper, I was not thinking bully stick, more like Pupperoni, which I only get for holidays.

  106. Tupper and Gilly
    10:04 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Dont worry Macy – we’ll send you another lobstah. But this year, don’t tell the other girls, and you can eat the whole thing yourself!

    Puss N’ Boots!…If you get a second, check Dishlickers…grunt!

    10:12 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Pouring!….It is pouring down rain in Atlanta…snort!…I wonder if they are going to call the game anytime soon?…grunt!…So much for Bark In The Park…wuffle!

  109. Gus & BooBear
    10:17 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Rio, checked and responded.

  110. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:21 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Puss N’ Boots!…Very interesting and I have definite opinions about the whole thing but will keep them to myself…grunt!

  111. Siber-H
    10:25 pm on September 16th, 2012

    I’m glad I am not at that ballgame…Rain.

    Macy, That is perfect: For A Few Collars More

    Tupper, Hold your head up and be proud.

  112. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:27 pm on September 16th, 2012

    SiberH!…Did you see the guy with the hat on sitting in the rain?…heh!heh!…That would be me if I were there…chuffle!

  113. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:29 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Title!…I love For A Few Collars More but I bet old Clint would start getting cranky if Chet uses that title …heh!…It’s pretty funny though..chuffle!

    Tupper: is there room in the proverbial doghouse for my dog Lady? I was painting KILZ on a concrete floor in the bedroom in preparation for carpet tomorrow. As I was in the tiny closet painting, I came out to discover that Lady had walked across the newly painted floor and laid down. When I softly said
    “L- a – d – y,” she got up, left the room and laid down on the carpet in the living room. Before you asked why I didn’t close the bedroom door, I had taken it off to move the furniture out.

    Rebecca: power on and off all afternoon. One tree has fallen and I am watching the one closest to my house.

  115. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:38 pm on September 16th, 2012

    CHobbit!…I do not see the problem…sniff!… Except that your closet sounds like it is way too small…wuffle!.. Please be careful tonight with all that horrible weather swirling around you…yeeep!…Now I will worry about you all night long…wuffle!

  116. SnowBella
    10:38 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Oh, Lady, what have you done?

    CHH: AJ was out in the wind and the rain today cutting down a large tree that threatened the kennel should it fall. Stay safe and warm.

  117. Tenzing
    10:41 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Lady: My harness off to you for a job well done. One side of me has been dark green since AJ painted all the dog houses a couple of weeks ago. He had to paint over Tenzing shaped areas on the roofs of each of the freshly painted dog houses. Fuss? What fuss? I didn’t bother me. Good work.

  118. c.hobbit
    10:45 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Rio: I have discovered that closets are like purses: when you get a bigger one, you just fill it with more stuff and still can’t find anything.

  119. SnowBella
    10:45 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Rio: I just posted some photos of the little cabin in the woods on our Facebookie if you’re friend will let you go have a look.

  120. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:46 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Tenzing!…Did you lean against all 70 plus houses?…snort!…That would really be impressive if you did…chuffle!

  121. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:48 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Grump!…No we will not go out to facebookie tonight or most other nights, except she did promise to print a photo for her mother off of facebookie…sniff!…So maybe while she is doing that I can take a peek…maybe.

  122. c.hobbit
    10:50 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Tenzing: yes, Lady will just have to live with white paint on her footpads and belly. I am too tired to take her to the lake and swim (bathe). She will walk it off in the woods in a few days.

  123. Tenzing
    10:51 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Rio: I was able to lay on several of the houses, but not all. AJ got wise and put a stop to my efforts. Wouldn’t it have been something if I could have got to all 50+ dog houses—one for the records books, I’m sure.

  124. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:02 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Tenzing!…I expect nothing less of you pal!…heh!…Fifty plus! Does this mean some of youse have to double-bunk?…grunt!

  125. Tenzing
    11:06 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Rio: There are only 51 of us and each of us have our own house. I do have to share my humans and house with Luna and Belle Starr every night. Sometimes that nutter, Belle Starr has the gumption to lay on my pillow—-the best in the house—when I’m not looking. While the majority of the team is away, there are a lot of empty dog houses. Annabelle has her choice of any of them, but if you can’t find her, the best place to check is Leonard’s house, the dog not the Storyteller. Those two became fast friends.

    11:13 pm on September 16th, 2012

    This has nothing to do with anything:

    An Armadillo is going to be the mascott for the 2014 Soccer World Cup.
    IMHO This sucks big time.

    We are signing off.
    night all
    Rio, Maybe we shouldn’t have cheered for Wookie’s team.

  127. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:17 pm on September 16th, 2012

    SiberH!…I’m sitting here thinking the same damned thing…grump!

    Tenzing!…I thought there were over 70 guys at Snowhook these days?…sniff!…My mistake in counting.

  128. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:39 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Bed!…My friend does not want to go to bed because if she does that means when she wakes up she will have to get ready to go to the busy-screwed-up-damned-place….wheeze!…She doesn’t look like she wants to face that future…wiffle!…What to do, what to do???…snuffle!

  129. Tenzing
    11:48 pm on September 16th, 2012

    Night, Rio.

    Wose: Below is the image that I woke up to yesterday morning. I’ll give you one guess who was laying on top and stayed sound asleep through the picture.

  130. Wose
    6:07 am on September 17th, 2012

    Tenzing…..ummm that’s a tough one……might that be the kid, Belle Starr?

  131. Wose
    6:08 am on September 17th, 2012

    Macy: For a Few Collars More……Brilliant!

  132. Masquers
    10:24 am on September 17th, 2012

    Rose: We would recognize that face anywhere!
    Youse guys have come up with some great names for the new book. What other writer has such talent at paw.

  133. OleyHowlers
    10:40 am on September 17th, 2012

    Thanks to Bluecat, for giving us a way to find the hat-tip to The Royal Mum on our kindle. We are guessing it is because Bernie is upset about lack of authenticity, but at least Johnny Depp was not in the cast. (or was he??? We have not yet finished the book!)

    Also, thanks to Gus and Boo Bear for your Dishlickers email. We were most happy to read that.
