Tony La Russa

“Love those baseball lifers like Tony La Russa,” says Admin.

“He’s something special,” Spence says. “Did you know about his animal rescue foundation?”

“I did not.”

“Here’s a link to how it all got started.”

Thanks to Mollie (a black poodle).

    Does anyone else think it’s ironic that an animal rescue organization spurred by a kat is named ARF?!

  5. OleyHowlers
    9:24 am on October 24th, 2011

    Good morning, all! Kirby, we Howlers think any organization spurred by Kat would have a name closer to H-O-W-L. Just sayin’

    Good morning, and good article. We like LaRussa. Glad he rescued Evie 20 years ago. Hope she had a good life.

    Totally agree, Kirby. Arf, arf!

    Great article and acompaning video about La Russa & ARF. Thanks for the link Chet & Molly!

    What a wonderful video and thanks to both Mollie and Spence for bringing it to our attention. I wonder if Rally Squirrel could wind up there some day (of course we know it is really Rockie and he will most likely head off with his hillbilly gang once the season is over; I think Commander Rio still has future plans for him as the marauding goats are still out there somewhere).

    Dear Wookie,
    You bet we are still out here. And just waiting for the next round of packages to be mailed.

    p.s. We are Rangers fans

    11:26 am on October 24th, 2011

    Gah!…. I should have known The Marauding Goats are Rangers fans….snort!….That just takes the cake…sniff!

    11:35 am on October 24th, 2011

    Dear Rio
    Yes, we will take your cake. And eat it too!

    Okay, I admit it – that was pretty funny, MG’s

  18. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:43 am on October 24th, 2011

    Cake!…I set them up for that one…sniff!

    That was a pop-up, Rio.

    12:53 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Rio: The MG’s got you bad…or good. Anyways, they got you.

    I’m back on the fence and leaning towards the Cardinals now because:
    Texas won, tying the series;
    Tony LaRussa started ARF because of a kat;
    The MG’s are surely on the wrong side;
    There is an embroidered picture of a cardinal on my bed right now.
    All of these are signs to me that Texas may not be the right team.

    12:57 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Welcome Dawson!!!

  22. Melanie
    1:41 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Good Afternoon. Awesome Dude to start a foundation named ARF.

    Hmm. . . Remind me never to go bowling with Jasper’s Mom!

  23. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:58 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Switch!…Hitter!… I do believe Dawson will be for whichever team actually wins the World Series…snort!…She’s changed her mind so much it doesn’t even matter where her loyalties lie…sniff!

  24. OleyHowlers
    2:41 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Actually, Dawson is not switching to the team who seems to have momentum. She can’t be accused of bandwagon-jumping, just open to new possibilities.

  25. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:46 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Band-wagging!…Is that what you call it? Band-wagging?…heh!… Since the teams are tied and that teenage pitcher Holland is back in his hole, the momentum could go either way tonight….snort!….Oh, I can’t wait to see who scores the first run…sniff!

  26. Barb & Maggie
    2:46 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Our four goats are safely behind the fence, so they are not part of the MGs. Anyway they are definitely Cardinal fans!

    Wonder how the weekend visit to her girl’s college went for Sammy and MollyPop’s mom. I’m sure she wowed everyone in the dorm with that new sweater. Can’t wait to hear about the trip.

    Okay, Nana finally told me what U-Pee means. Sounds like heads will roll when Jasper’s mom shows up. I wouldn’t want to be one of those guys!

  28. Tupper and Gilly
    3:20 pm on October 24th, 2011

    We have one thing to say


    (sent from CLLand)

    Do we know if the MGs are available for contract removals?

    Where the heck did today go?

  30. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:23 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Golinka!….heh!…This sounds serious! I hope Stinky Mama tells us what happened today with the Crazy One….snort!

  31. dawson
    4:15 pm on October 24th, 2011

    It is called “sitting on a fence”.
    I can understand how the concept would be hard for you to grasp.

    Never has a pug
    sat upon a fence.
    It’s an impossibility
    and it makes no sense.

    Why would a pug
    do such a thing?
    It’s an improbability,
    They’d just as soon take wing.

    When pugs fly,
    Then they may well perch
    with incredibility
    upon a slat of birch.

  32. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:21 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Fly!….When us Pugs Fly that’s when the Texas Rangers are going to win the World Series….Wooooooo!…snort!snort!….Get off the fence Dawson and stake a claim…grunt!….Just like Admin did. Bless his heart. …heh!

    4:54 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Great poem Dawson.
    On the fence, or not, if
    You are leaning St.Louie way.
    That’s good enough for us.

    5:13 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Wow, great poem Dawson.

    Went for my checkup today and my Cholesterol is great and my blood pressure is great and my blood sugar is good and my kidneys, all three of them are normal!!!so I am a happy camper.

    Got my flu shot and also had a mammogram. Another doctors appt tomorrow and then a massage and I should be good to go for another 3 months.


    Thanks for being there for me during the last year all you Plunderers. You were a great help during that exciting time in my life, and having the quilt to work on was a big help too. Hugs to you all.

    Baseball tonight and here at the farm I can have my computer at a little vintage sewing machine desk right behind the sofa and watch and blog at the same time! Maybe I will even have popcorn!
    I feel great!

    5:26 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Greetings All:

    Hey, Dawson…You are a poet, and I didn’t know it! 🙂

    Is baseball still being played?

    Tony LaRussa is a good guy in my book!

  37. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:29 pm on October 24th, 2011

    La Russa!…. He deserves another World Series win in my book…heh!….My tail is tingling and thinks he is going to get it this year….Wooooooo!

    Rebecca: Luna, Belle, and I are safely ensconced here in the apartment. “Don’t leave the key outside the door,” Belle reminded me. “Lock the doors and windows,” said Luna.
    Chicken pot pie on the menu today.

  39. Rose
    6:03 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Abbie: Glad to hear that you are in the best of health!

    Masquers: The Prof touched down in Utah alittle before 5, NY time. He said the scenery and mountains are beautiful.

    Speaking of mountains, the weather forecast said there might be a possibility of a little “white stuff” in the Katskills tonight.

  40. Barb & Maggie
    6:06 pm on October 24th, 2011

    I am going to take a wild guess here, and say that above post was from Mrs. Staff. Glad things are going well.

    Barb has to have all those 1 year checkups too. Hope things will go as well for her.

  41. Masquers
    6:17 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Another big game tonight to break the 2-2 tie. The next 2 games will be played at Arlington, so the Cardinals had better get busy if they want to play back in St.Louis.
    Did you get my last minute message last night telling you to pack his umbrella? Only 20% chance of rain, but better safe than sorry. Hoping the Prof will have a good trip.
    Chicken pot pie sounds yummy. The girls will love it.

  42. B.Stover
    6:20 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Staff: That is great news.

  43. Rose
    6:32 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Masquers: Yep, got it. The Prof always keeps an umbrella in the car, so I’m sure he put it in his carry-on.

    The girls and I are licking our lips. The pot pie was delish! To me, the secret of a good pot pie is the crust. It must be golden-brown and flaky, and so it was!

    Just kidding about baseball being played. The season was over for me when the Yankees lost…….

  44. Barb & Maggie
    7:12 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Barb talked to her sister today who still lives in STL, where Barb grew up. Her son,(Barb’s nephew) got a call last night from a business associate. He had a super good seat for the game tonight in Texas, and had a last minute conflict. So he offered the seat to Soctt for nothing! Scott got a last minute flight down there today and will be attending the game tonight. He is soooo excited! Hope he brings the team good luck.

  45. Barb & Maggie
    7:21 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Have a feeling from reading T & G’s mums post, that the CL didn’t chage her mind on all the date changes that she was considering last week.

  46. Gus & BooBear
    7:33 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Good News, Staff!!!(Do you really have 3 kidneys now? We assumed that they would remove the ones that weren’t working to make room for the new one.)

    Ahem, GO RANGERS !!!!!!!!!!

  47. BearSpiritDog
    7:34 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Abbie: That is a great health report for Staff. Nothing better than feeling tip top!

    Tupper&Gilly: Tell your mum to post as soon as she gets home from CL Land. Wonder what CL is up to now.

    Barb&Magpie: Scott is a lucky dog that’s for sure. He must be sooo excited! Nana’s sister and family have lived in St.Louis now for the past 10 years or so. They moved there from University Place, WA (near Tacoma)

  48. Gus & BooBear
    7:35 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Oh! Also, Melanie worked her magic on our pictures for the MMCS items. Now Mom has to spiff up the description, decide on a price and forward to Rebecca! Can’t wait to see what all is going to be for sale.

    And, GO RANGERS!!!!!!!

  49. Melanie
    7:35 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Ohhhhhh, Staff had the good news. I was wondering how on earth a Kat gets a mammogram.

    I really have no idea what I’ve done today. I worked all day. Hmmmmm. . .

  50. Barb & Maggie
    7:51 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Bear, Where do they live in St. Louis? Barb grew up in Affton, which is a south suburb. Her niece lives in Affton, and her sister has lived in Webster Groves and Manchester. Now moved farther west to St. Peters, which is a suburb that didn’t even exist when Barb lived there. She still loves St. Louis- used to go there about 3 times a year till her mom passed away.

    Melanie, we have days like that too!

  51. dawson
    7:55 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Melanie: A kat mammogram. Ouch ouch ouch ouch, ouch ouch ouch and ouch! Yeeeow!

    8:08 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Oops. Just felt so good I posted without checking and AbbietheKitty had left her info on the computer. You can’t trust these Kats!

    I knew you would see it immediately Rio!

    Thanks everyone!

    We had homemade tomato soup for supper tonight. Yum.

    For all you puzzle fans out there, there is an AP called Astra Jigsaw. There are various collections that you can purchase (100 jigsaws for $3.99) and you can also determine the difficulty. Mom is hooked, and best of all, there are no pieces to lose. We especially like the Art puzzles.

  56. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:31 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Bases!….Two Cards on base and one out!…heh!….The Cardinals are looking a lot more aggressive tonight….YeeeHawww!…

  57. Jasper the Poodle
    8:32 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Jasper’s mom here. Congrats Staff. I’d much rather have 2 boobs mammo’d than all the boobies that a kat has.

    Spent the day driving from Lansing to Marquette. Check out the pics on my Facebookie. Nice pic of the Mighty Mac, and Big Mac, nicknames for the Mackinaw Bridge. Drove along the north side of Lake Michigan for awhile, then headed north some more, and drove along the south side of Lake Superior. Can you tell by the pics that Superior is much bluer that Lake Michigan? I think it’s because Superior is always so much colder than the other lakes, it’s also the deepest Great Lake as well. Any maybe that’s all just a load of hooey, but I do think temp has an effect on color. Anyone have some input about that?

    Still saw some decent color on the trees. Hit a weird patch after Grayling…about 20 miles where there were no leaves on the trees at all, then back to “normal” where the leaves are past color peak, but still on the trees. Wonder if some kind of freaky wind blew thru and caused all the leaves to fall off. Plenty of leaves still on the trees here in the You Pee, but the only color left is some yellow, rust and the dark brown of oak tree leaves. There are many, many, many different types of pines in the UP, but one type of pine tree is completely yellow instead of green. Very strange, never saw that before.

    Anywhoo, I’m settled in here in my nice hotel, had some Domino’s and sippin’ a Diet Coke. I’m getting caught up on internet land, gonna play some Words With Friends, and settle in with a J.D. Robb book.

    Work! Yes, I did enjoy the drive, but I am here to work, and tomorrow I will indeed WORK. I have 3 meetings tomorrow with employees. I will have to discharge someone from employment tomorrow, ’cause that’s what happens when you stick your hand in the till. EE is bringing a lawyer to the mtg. Hope she brings a cashier’s check to replace the $$ that she stole. (HEH!) Police detectives have already turned over the case to the prosecuting attorney. Hope to have some news about that tomorrow. My part only involves work rule and policy violations as it relates to the employer. My job is to represent the employer’s interests, since I work in HR. The criminal aspect is something that I’m not involved in, except to provide information and witness testimony.

    The other meetings tomorrow have to do with shenanegans. It all starts with a mercedes convertable that is titled in another state, but the owner’s SIL wants to drive it in MI during the short summer in the UP. SIL is employed by the State of MI. Stupid SIL (SS) puts a 30-day temp plate on the merc conv. The owner of the merc conv also owns a mercedes station wagon. SS renews the plate on the Merc SW, then transfers that plate to the merc conv, then purchases a new plate for the SW. The problem with this whole thing (here’s the shenanegan part) is that the cost to plate the SW is half the cost to plate the conv. AND…it is against the rules for SS to use her knowledge about plating vehicles to avoid paying fees. Clear as mud? Yeah.

    So that’s what I’m dealing with tomorrow. Plus, don’t forget one employee will have an attorney, and one will have a union rep. So put that in the pot and stir it up too.

    This is only part I of the shenegans…(But wait, there’s more!)but that’s a story for another day…

    One day at a time.

  66. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    9:07 pm on October 24th, 2011

    Jasper’s mom. Are you familiar with a great mystery series written by Steve Hamilton that is set in the U.P. The main character is a former Detroit cop named Alex McKnight and the first book in the series is called A Cold Day in Paradise. The books really give a great feel for the U.P., and are very good mysteries too. Some colorful characters throughout. Highly recommended. Wookie

    Hey, Wookie, thanks for the recommendation on the books. Will have to try those.

    Jasper’s Mom: Jeez Louise! What total idiots. Good luck tomorrow. Your pictures were beautiful!

    Dawson: “Ouch . . .” snickering

    BStover: What I know about apps. Your computer can’t work ’em but your other smart stuff can.

    Speaking of the opposite of smart. Our cell phone went missing. I looked everywhere for it before I told Zoë. I looked in my purse, my jacket pockets, the Subaru and the Honda. Everywhere we usually keep the phone.

    Told Zoë. I called the number and we went around the house listening. Nothing.
    Zoë checked her purse, her pockets, everywhere we usually keep the phone and the cars. Nothing.

    I decided to blame my sister. Only because she was the only one to visit yesterday. I usually blame my guys even if they haven’t been to the house for months.

    I go out to the Honda to pick up Jesse. The cell phone is on the front passenger seat. In PLAIN SIGHT.

    Rolling eyes here.

    Hi Gang!
    We’re here in time to see the Rangers kick some Cardinal butts!

    As to the CL – well, lets just say that if she had been on the Titanic – she would have been arranging the deck chairs as the boat slid under the waves.
    And yet – she would undoubtably been picked up by one of the lifeboats – somehow the silly cow always comes thru. Usually on the backs of those who throw themselves out of the lifeboats to save her.
    Still waiting for that winning lottery ticket.

    Staff – thrilled to hear the good medical reports.
    Dawson – the Kat mammogram made me laugh out loud.
    Macy – GO RANGERS!

    Yup, AP stands for application. Not sure if it should be capped or not. I should have mentioned that it is for the ipaw folks.

    I am rooting for the cardinals because they are prettier than rangers.

    Mama says she would rather see Rangers than birds in a locker room. We think so too – our Daddy used to be a Park Ranger, and he’s pretty cute.

    Jasper’s mom: Which is worse? An attorney or a Union rep? With the facts as you’ve stated I don’t see how either can help the employees.

    Dawson – she is still biting her nails about her project. When it is fired, it takes 12 hours to fire, and 12 hours at least to cool down, and then it gets delivered back to her from the kiln. So she won’t know until Wednesday at the earliest.
    A hint? Ok – a number of Plunderers asked about a certain type of donation. Mama took that idea and ran with it. Kind of. At least keep that phrase in mind..”ran with it”.

    What the…? A pitcher being used just for one intentional walk? Is this the World Series? A lousy game by both teams, really. So many bobbled balls, bad throws, mental errors.
    And where is Siber H? Is he missing all the “fun”?

    Saw that one – carpola!

    Ooooh…Now that was a great play. Strike out Pujols and make the throw to 2nd for a double play. You gotta like that Pujols, though. He’s a class act all the way.

    Come on Macy – sing it loud – NA PO LI!!!

    That’s the game. Now the Rangers only have to win one more.
    (It could all end on Wednesday B.)

    Oooo I still want little Nicky Punto to get a World Series ring but the Cards have got to buckle down to do it.

    Congrats to the Texas team and their supporters on the blog

    Hello Plunderers! Today was the first of a two day conference on community building that my boss invited me to attend. I’ve been thinking a lot about the community we find here at Chet’s. I thought I would share a video that the facilitator, who is from South Africa shared at the conference.
