Tomorrow Is Memorial Day

Which began after the Civil War.

With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan–to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves, and with all nations.

    When Mom was in Nashville, she visited Carnton Plantation. This was the site of one of the bloodiest battles in Civil War History: 10,000 casualties in 5 hours.
    It was a powerful experience because Mom is completely ignorant of the Civil War.

    To those who have fought for us, on these shores and others: thank you.

    Let’s remember that Memorial Day is not about picnics, or going to the beach,or BBQs . It is about remembering those who have fought for the freedoms we enjoy in this country, and those who continue to serve the country they love.

    Good Morning Wolfie, Rose and All.
    Our family traditionally visited the grave site on Memorial Day to tend to it and pay our respects, as Staff did yesterday. Following this there was a picnic in the park.

    What a Great Store Opening yesterday! Can you believe it? Already we must restock the shelves.
    We wish a Great Day of Sales to our Dear Golinka and the Storyteller (whispering) thank you for saving some bears for the MMSB!)

    I didn’t know that. Thank you Spence and Admin.

    Good morning all.

    good morning Wolfie, Rose, Bear and B. Checking in here to leave a message from Staff for Dawson.

    Hey Dawson, I sent you an email to print out for Dad. If you want, send it to the Turtleman and he or E will print it out nicely.

    hmmm He or E. I like the way that sounds.

    We had RAIN last night. At 2:30 and 4 a.m. Wowser! Lightning that wouldn’t quit. I had to get under the covers on top of Staff to be safe. It was quite scary!

    Thank you for reminding us of the true meaning of the holiday. Barb said she wished she could blur down to St. Louis to visit the graves of her mom and dad (a WWII vet), and of her wonderful step-father who is buried in the Veterans cemetary in St. Louis.

    Morning all. Have a wonderful Sunday.

    For my mother’s favorite uncle, my Great Uncle Arnold J. Isbell, thank you for your service. He died when the USSS Franklin was hit by bombs. He was being ported to his new command USS Yorktown.

    He is well known in Navy circles. In our family one of the best stories included a dog. He was home on leave and had brought a beautiful roast (meat being rationed) for my grandmother to cook. By all accounts it was a roast of perfection. Until they all looked away and Zoë’s cocker spaniel, Patsy, grabbed it and ran. AFter a chase, they washed what was left and ate it.

    Guess who my Patsy is named for??

    Barb & MagPie, I forgot to take a picture of the mound. It’s slightly smaller now. I also covered it up with a tarp seeing that later today we are “supposed” to get a thunderstorm.

    This morning. Ellie was concerned at 5:15 am and started barking. I came down and gave tummies and told them I was going back to sleep until at least six, they let me sleep until 7:15. amazing.

    After doing pills, feeding, cleaning the kitchen, I went out in the garage to get the flag. Forgot about the flag because I saw the wheelbarrow. Went out with the wheelbarrow and found the shovel. Got loads of dirt/compost and put shovelfuls around the strawberry plants that needed it. Then I noticed some other plants needed dirt. but then I noticed one flower plant was getting crowded out by the callie lily that is taking over. So I dug out part of the lily, but I hate to waste a pretty plant. So I dug another hole in an area that the lily can take over and found an old rusty bread knife (I think). Planted the lily, but more dirt around those other plants and then noticed my tire raised beds and the gutter garden needed plumping up. So I did that. Then I watered everything.

    During this whole time Patsy is in the car wit the hatch open and the doors watching me from the cool shade.

    Finally got back in. I still have poop patrol and I forgot the flag.


    After my cocoa.

    Thank you, Captain Isbell.

    Is Franklin named for Captain Isbell’s ship?

    Hoping that sales are most excellent today for the Royal Mum and Dad!

    Rose . . . That is another story . . .

    Our house is 200 years old this year. Eleanor Roosevelt gave a speech here and it is rumored that she spent the night in the house. We know she was here, but not if she actually spent the night.

    And so we named our first puppy Eleanor! Or Ellie for short. Since we kept one of her grandson’s what other name could he have but Frank??

    Here is a little cartoon for all you cat lovers out there. Made me laugh out loud.

  14. Masquers
    11:26 am on May 27th, 2012

    Thanks for the smile, Alice. That gave me a good chuckle.

  15. Rose
    11:31 am on May 27th, 2012

    Thanks for that, Alice. That brought a smile to my face and a crinkle to the corners of my eyes.

    Melanie, that is a very cool story!

  16. Melanie
    11:38 am on May 27th, 2012

    That was wonderful Alice. I could just picture you and Abbie. Well, maybe not. I had two like that Bowl and Chris.

    The Flag is now flying.

    Poop patrol next.

  17. Barb & Maggie
    11:52 am on May 27th, 2012

    Melanie, We will be anxious to find out how your gutter garden does. We are going to plant a few replacement beans – birds ate the tops off a few as they emerged from the ground. Grump! First blooms on the ‘matoes. Before June 1st is really early for us. Back later, after it gets too hot to be out there. Upper 90’s this afternoon. Thank Dog we finally got some rain.

  18. Rose
    11:56 am on May 27th, 2012

    Rio! Please check your SDD when able.

  19. Gus & BooBear
    11:59 am on May 27th, 2012

    Thank you, AliceM. That helped Mom decide on something. The lady who runs the shelter Mom volunteers at had asked Mom to foster a little kitten who is very scared and timid. Not adoptable material at all. Mom has been going back and forth about it since things are peaceful here. But she kept thinking about that poor little scared baby. So after watching that little video, littleMac will be coming here at least for a while….possibly his forever home.

    Thank you, veterans, current and previous, for all your service to our country. Flags are flying in your honor.


  20. Gus & BooBear
    12:03 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Rose, we are the ones who bought the Dare to Dream quilling on the MMSB. If you are really interested, you could buy the “Sing” one that is still available and we can have Rio’s friend ship the Dream one to you and the Sing one to us. It doesn’t really matter to us since we kept going back and forth between the 2! Let me know what you think.


  21. Mollypop's Mom
    12:10 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Gus&Boo – Bless your hearts for wanting to foster that scared baby kitty. Thanks to Alice M. for the video.

    I missed a lot yesterday with that tummy bug and today I’m just resting. I’ll get shopping tomorrow. I want a sweatshirt so I’m not worried about them selling out right now.

  22. Melanie
    12:13 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Dawson, please check SDD.

    Note to self: Now that it is hot please remember NOT to carry portable phone in top shirt pocket. Especially when hooking up the outside automatic dog watering thing so a dog can bump into you, while you are swearing at the hose, and the phone comes out of the pocket into the now filled bucket of water.

    Jeez Louise!

    All chores are DONE! Now I can finally take my shower.


  23. Masquers
    12:32 pm on May 27th, 2012

    We have a neighbor who put up the Flag after 9/11 and has been flying it ever since – 24/7 all year long.

    G&BB: What big hearts you have! First fostering the little one and now offering Rose a chance to have her “Dream”.

  24. Snowhook Bella
    12:46 pm on May 27th, 2012

    AJ went on our date last night and enjoyed the movie. Staff—did your see a certain pug here and there in the movie.

    Addresses! For those of you who paid via PayPal, I will be sending you addresses to the sellers today.

    Melanie: Please check your SDD.

    Wishing Golinka a wonderful and successful day at the show!

    Rose: I don’t know how it happened but Belle Starr seems to have commandeered Tenzing’s upstairs dog pillow. She makes no apologies.

  25. B.Stover
    12:47 pm on May 27th, 2012

    G&BB: Please let us know how little Mac does.

    Melanie: Does the phone still work?

  26. Melanie
    12:59 pm on May 27th, 2012

    B.Stover, Letting the phone dry out. Then I’ll try it.

    Gus & BooBear, please be nice to lilMac.

    Shower was great. Only two dogs on the tiles in the bathroom. I almost had room to get around.

  27. Masquers
    1:14 pm on May 27th, 2012

    MollysMom: Happy to hear you are feeling better. I’m sure Princess Sam will be taking the credit.
    Mom bought the Snowhook Hoodie during the race. She loves it…very comfortable and stylish.

    Melanie: This just doesn’t seem to be your day. Hope the phone still works after drying out.

  28. Melanie
    1:21 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Taking credit? I thought Princess Sam was the perfect doctor!

    Bella, check SDD.

    I hope Riö’s friend is having a great mountain get away.

  29. Masquers
    1:28 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Bella: I love how you have set up the boutique, with the clever titles…ie: RTEP & NOSWAD.
    Can’t wait til Rose hears the good news!
    About that replacement for the kat coasters that were snatched out from under our very nose; can we pick something more expensive and pay the difference?
    The Seattle International Film Festival opened this weekend – always a fun time.

  30. B.Stover
    1:33 pm on May 27th, 2012

    I just ordered a hoodie.

    Mollypop’s Mom: Hope you feel better.

    Masquers: Will you be seeing any of the films?

  31. Siber-H
    1:54 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Gus&BooBear, Good for you guys for taking in the little one, and for being willing to trade quilling with Rose.

    Melanie, I have read while drying the phone, take the battery out.

  32. Melanie
    2:07 pm on May 27th, 2012

    The batter is out The phone is almost dry. Still a little humidity on the screen.

    I am on a roll! Heartwarm shots given.

    Whew, going to veg now.

    2:28 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Hello all. We are taking it easy after a scary night and morning of awful thunder storms. Mom and Pop were ready to take “Nannie” to their frienfs’ for a Sunday morning ride, but those storms once again got in the way. So now they have rescheduled the ride for tomorrow. Meantime, they must now Do the chores they were planning for tomorrow. They are going out with other friends for dinner and outdoors music later. We are hoping for no storms to hit while we are alone.

    G&BB, we think your taking care of a scared little kitty is wonderful.

  34. Barb & Maggie
    2:38 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Molly’s mom had perfect medicine – Sam and popcorn.

    Barb will put a check in the mail on Tuesday, Rebecca, correct payee this time! Snicker.

    Going to go grill a burger and read a little Lisa Scottoline. We read her book that was on the boutique and it was very good. But of course, all her books are good.

  35. Masquers
    2:50 pm on May 27th, 2012

    B: There is an exceptional movie line-up this year at the festival. We would love to, at least, sample on or two.

    Maggie: Which movie did you and Barb watch last night?

  36. Barb & Maggie
    3:38 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Masquers, We watched Contagion. I would give it a c+ – B-. Lot of well know stars, but it was not exceptional.

  37. Melanie
    3:52 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Sniff, sniff, sniff . . . guess who’s wedding pictures are now on line?
    Sniff. If you’d like to see them (there are some 260 or so) send me an email and I’ll send you the link.

    Great way to veg. . .

    BelleStarr, what happened to your big pillow that you let your two-legged and red beard use?

  41. BearSpiritDog
    4:27 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Melanie: Thank you!

  42. Mollypop's Mom
    4:47 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Masquers – Since you already have the hoodie, how does the size run? Also, any shrinkage after washing to allow for?

  43. Masquers
    5:27 pm on May 27th, 2012

    MollysMom: I bought it for Mom in her regular size, a medium, and it fits puurfectly. So far she has only tried washing it in cold water. Before purchasing, Rebecca was able to give me some helpful input, as she and AJ have been wearing their hoodies for a while now.

  44. Tupper and Gilly
    5:29 pm on May 27th, 2012

    from Amalia – Rio, you can come sit on my lap if you think you can push Tupper out of the way. And if you promise not to f-rt.

    Thanks again for all the good wishes. We have had some sales today and lots of “I’ll be back tomorrow”s. So we are keeping positive thoughts.

    No horrifically rude people so far this year, but a few that would make Darwin question his theory. One middle- aged, nicely dressed woman came into the booth and spent quite a few minutes looking around. Then she came over to my chair, leaned in close and confided “I met an Indian once”. And then she walked away. Maybe it was the sound of my jaw hitting the floor…..

    So another half hour to go and then dinner and bed and tomorrow we get to do it all again. Yippee!

    Melanie – the best way to dry the phone out is to bury it in raw rice of course the better way is to not drop it IN water.

    Hope everyone is healthy, happy and safe from bad weather.

  46. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    6:20 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Hi everyone. Very busy day here in Chevy Chase. Mom and dad were completely cleaning the screened in porch so that it can be reprinted (probably next weekend’s project). The first step was removing all the latticework they had to put in around the bottom panels of all the screens because of that unfortunate incident several years ago when me and my pal Casey did some serious wrestling on the screened in porch and managed to rip apart most of the screens. That was during my young and rambunctious phase.

    Our tomato plants are doing good; blossoms on a number of them already and a couple are already more than 3 feet tall.

    B — there was a great article in today’s NYT about proper comma usage, called The Most Comma Mistakes. It is in the Sunday Review section. Talks a lot about those nefarious comma splices that you despise.

    Dad’s been doing some window shopping in the Musher Mercantile and will be ordering a bunch of stuff in the next day or so.


  47. Barb & Maggie
    6:20 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Amalia, Hope tomorrow is a gang buster day. We are experiencing extreme heat, hope you are not. Have fun tonight at dinner. Eat something yummy for desert.

    Barb pulled green onions (eat you heart out Rio), cilantro and lettuce. Looks like we are having some chicken tacos with lots of fresh veggies tonight.

  48. Snowhook Bella
    6:29 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Rio: Did your friend enjoy her hike?

    G&BB: That is very nice of you to offer the dream project to Rose. I have it noted accordingly. We have a Big Mac and now a Lil Mac on this here blog.

    MollysMom: The hoodies and long-sleeve t-shirts fit pretty close to size. I’m a solid medium so that is what I ordered in the Dog Box t-shirt; for me, I wouldn’t go larger, I wouldn’t go smaller. I did order a large in the hoodie because I like to wear that type of thing big. I ordered AJ an XL because of his height. It’s roomy around his middle. I wouldn’t go bigger for him. They are sized for minimal shrinkage that might take place. I can’t tell the difference between the pre and post wash sizing.

  49. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:35 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Tired!…I think she enjoyed her day out very much….sniff!…She’s very tired but managed to water all the potted flowers outside just now…snort!…Niether Beau or I got wet…heh!

  50. Snowhook Bella
    6:53 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Rio: I’ll have you know that only one, count ’em one, dozen flower piece is all that remains of your wonderful quilling projects in the MMSB!

  51. Barb & Maggie
    6:54 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Wookie, We got our garden in early this year. Have been enjoying several things already. Your tomatoes are way ahead of ours, however. We do have a few with blooms, but the plants are only about a foot high. When do you put yours in and how big are they when you first plant? What kind did you do this year?

  52. Masquers
    7:00 pm on May 27th, 2012

    T&G: The Darwin remark made us laugh. You never know when people are going to do or say something completely off the wall.
    Good advice about Melanie’s phone. We remember hearing it somewhere. The rice supposedly absorbs the moisture.
    Wookie: We are going to check out the NY Times article…it sounds interesting.

  53. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    7:04 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Mom and dad are back from the hardware store. Mom bought some chais at a yard sale and is painting them a deep dark red. (And I won’t mention how many years ago she bought those chairs either!)

  54. Gus & BooBear
    7:06 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Well, lilMac is now here and in a very large kennel with a box, food, water and covered bed so he can feel safe. He was very good on the ride home (about an hour) but when Mom took him out of the carrier, he did hiss until she cuddled him up to her. He was okay with the petting but is still very unsure of things. He is in his hidey hole bed but not overly upset, just scoping things out. Hopefully, he will adjust quickly and soon be able to join the genpop (general population for those not in the know). We will post a pic as soon as we can get one.


  55. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:10 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Mountains!….Here is a photo from today when her and a friend were at Rocky Mountain National Park ….snort!…It was a tad windy but beautiful!…heh!

    Wookie!….Looks like we might be able to watch your baseball team play tonight on ESPN….snort!…Washington vs Atlanta at 6:00pm my time…wheeze!….I have been informed we will be out walking tonight for part of it…grunt!…I thought she was tired of walking…grumble!

  59. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:27 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Rose!…She had a great day, I can tell…heh!…She’s not mad at anyone any more…sniff!…Thank goodness!

  60. Gus & BooBear
    7:28 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Rio, is that your friend or your friend’s friend in the picture? Love the pictures of the mountains!

  61. BearSpiritDog
    7:30 pm on May 27th, 2012

    SnowBella: We were checking out the offerings in the Boutique and zoomed in on the photo of Annabelle & Twig. Looks like she’s happy to be retired…just look at that smile!

    Barb&Magpie: Enjoy the “fruits” of your labor from your Magic Garden. The tomatoes aren’t quite ready, but will be soon. Our grandpa was a big connoisseur of the veggie/fruit. Unfortunately, we didn’t inherit any of his talents.

    Rio: Beautiful pictures!

  62. B.Stover
    7:34 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Those mountains are gorgeous Rio.

    Thank you Wookie. I’ll look at the article.

    Those mountain pictures make me miss Montana.
    Gus & BooBear: Awww, lilMac seems as if he will soon be right at home.
    We had a scorcher today. I planted a zuchini and some lavender. I have 4 tomatoes but they are what Barb calls the “boring” kind, because Dad insisted. They are a little over a foot tall and have a few flowers. I did not start from seed, they are from the garden store. I planted some beets from seed. They are 2 inches tall and fighting the weeds and Staff’s walking onions for survival.

  65. Tupper and Gilly
    8:08 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Home at last and where they are supposed to be – on the couch with us! Even if they didn’t bring us a doggie bag. (they went to a sushi bar, so we don’t really care about the doggie bag part, but boy, are Basil and Sage pissed!)

    Hey Rio – those were beautiful pictures. Hope your friend had a lovely time. But as far as sitting on our Mama’s lap – we need to talk….

    Welcome to little Mac – don’t worry little one. All the dogs on this here blog are gentle and will protect scared little kittens. And Basil and Sage send purrs.

  66. Rose
    8:17 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Rio, I’m glad your friend enjoyed her day. Hiking among those gorgeous mountains would make anyone’s day better!

  67. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:43 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Walking!…heh!snort!heh!….Well, we proved our point tonight that separate walks are the only way to go…chorkel!….Beau and I twirled around her on our “together walk” and made her look like a fool in front of all the neighbors….heh!…She was tied up good and tight there for a while…chuffle!….Teamwork Rules!

  68. Melanie
    8:51 pm on May 27th, 2012

    Riö, I don’t know, mountains are supposed to have trees and green stuff on them. You sure those aren’t mutant clouds? snicker

    Ahh, Dawson? Speaking of mutants . . walking onions?

    Can’t remember anymore. My body says, “Quit now!”


  69. Barb & Maggie
    8:52 pm on May 27th, 2012

    That beautiful outing was just what your friend needed today, Rio. I am not talking about the one she had with you and Beau.

    T & G’s mom and dad, hope your day tomorrow is great and financially eventful too. Stay away from the Darwin rejects!

    Melanie: Those onions are walking all over my baby beets. Staff planted those onions…actually I think they walked here from N.Dakota. By the way, great story about Patsy’s namesake this morning.
    Staff: That was a very cute video with the little kitty.
    Wookie: Nice article about comma’s in the NYTimes. I especially like the last paragraph.

    Dawson, We sent some onion seeds to Staff last year. I wonder if those are the same. We called them bunching onions because they spread.

    Signing off here. The computer has too many windows open and is acting up. That, in turn, is making Someone here stress out.
    We have the 3rd Boardwalk Empire DVD from Netflix, so that will be the entertainment for the evening.
    Nite all – Bear

    Barb and Maggie, The onions I planted are, I think, just like the ones you sent me. The ones I planted were from a friend of mine in North Dakota. His first name was Merlin and he was a magician with plants.
    I looked them up on the web and they are called: Perennial white topset onions, walking onions, Egyptian onions, winter onions, shallots, multiplier onions and scallions are common names for these onions. These onions can be planted and left in the ground year round.
    Here is a link with more info and a picture…

    Mine from Merlin look just like that picture and are hardy here in North Dakota, zone 3.
