Turning Over an Old Leaf

“Any New Year’s resolutions this year?” Spence says.

“I resolve,” says Admin, “to be exactly the same in every respect all the way down to the microscopic level. Or more so.”

“I’m betting you can do it.”

    Good morning. Did everyone make resolutions? Any fun ones out there? I think Admin will succeed with his.

    How is YSAS this morning?

    Good morning, Barb and Maggie, and Spence and Admin.
    We just got caught up on last night’s posts. Apparently YSAS has a viral infection. Must be a bad one. Also, when we awoke, there was no Kat. Just a note that said “vacation over. Off to NYC with Luna and fellow smoochers.”

    Hello SK Lurker!

    Viral!…My friends young nephew had a virus in his gut that they say causes bleeding ulcers…groan!…He’s been on very strong antibiotics and almost has it kicked…grunt!…What’s up with all the really young people getting so sick these days? Old dawgs like me hardly ever get sick. Knock on Beau’s head…sniff!

    Good Morning OHs, and B&M!

    One of the Smoochers, Belle Starr is up top.

    Sigh! The party’s over. Back to the busy place.

    Hope YSAS is feeling better.

    Good day to all youse guys out there. (you too SK Lurker) :^)

    I’m turning over an old leaf and staying exactly the same also. Snort…as someone would say.

    I hope YSAS is better.

    Good morning all.

    Leaf!…You couldn’t change me even if you tried….snort!…I’m set in my pugnacious ways…heh!

    Monkey!…The monkey on that show I was watching last night was hilarious…heh!…Too bad it was cancelled. I will watch the remaining shows that On Demand are offering though…heh!

    Stormy Kromer Lurker: I love my Stormy Kromer caps also (winter: black wool; fall: yellow cord). Just got back from a walk with flaps down. (It’s 12 degrees here.)

    Luna is making me laugh. I hope they got their jello.

  8. Princess Sam
    10:26 am on January 2nd, 2013

    I’m keeping an eye on YSAS since I’m on top. Luna is so clever – I even have a Dr. Sam name tag. If the infection is a virus then antibiotics won’t work. Keeping the patient hydrated is important. We’re waiting for further diagnosis.

    My brother is reading A Fistful of Collars. (I got him started on the Chet and Bernie mysteries a few years ago.) He thinks that it is a more “internal, psychological mystery” than the others. I’ll have to reread it and consider this. (My brother was a school librarian before he retired.)

    Sam: You and the smoochers do good work.

  10. Rose
    10:50 am on January 2nd, 2013

    Sammie, I know you and the rest of the Smoochers will stay on top of things, and make sure YSAS is getting the best of care.

    I never make resolutions.

    Fat fluffy flakes of snow are floating gently down. No wind at all.

    Maggie’s obituary that we would have liked to have in the paper is on our blog. The cost to put it in the paper would have been over 800.00. I can’t believe the cost of obits! We could have put in a Classified for a lot less! heh. We cut it down to 16 lines for the paper. And no pictures either.

    I am glad Dr.Sam is on the job. Those lurkers are sure tough. It is amazing that Masquers can hold Sam up this long…

  12. Kat
    11:16 am on January 2nd, 2013

    That Masquers is one Fat Cat, I’m here to say. Oh my aching shoulders. Plus, someone up there keeps rutsching a lot.

    Though admitted to the hospital, his room is the hallway. Luckily, SO waved down a “Dr. Sam” who moved him to a much quieter end of the hall. Very crowded. They only people who got rooms were those who needed heart monitors.

    There was a very strange disappearance of numerous jello containers. They were found scattered about under gurneys – empty. The theft was blamed on ROUS. snicker

    Anywoof, I have had 4 hours of sleep, YSAS has had two hours of sleep and SO has had naps. TWELVE straight hours of splorting. His wheezing? He’s strained the muscles in his chest.

    IVs of fluids, magnesium and electrolytes. With any luck, he should be out of there today. I think SO said something about hiding from the world for a few days.

    More on my morning later.

    11:22 am on January 2nd, 2013

    Good Morning Everyone

    I do not make New Year’s resolutions. Dogs have no need of them. We are perfect

    YSAS You are in our thoughts and we are wishing you a speedy recovery.

  15. BearSpiritDog
    11:25 am on January 2nd, 2013

    Staff: We just finished reading your beautiful tribute to Maggie. What an Amazing person! She, Full of Fun & Life, taught her children well.

    It is good to hear YSAS was finally admitted to the hospital, but in our opinion it took much longer than it should have taken. Judging by the Plunderer reports, many have been attacked by this virus. We hope he will be feeling much better by the end of the day. Healing prayers continue to be sent his way.

  16. Tupper and Gilly
    11:29 am on January 2nd, 2013

    Staff and Dawson – that was indeed a beautiful tribute to your Mom. She was truly remarkable, and has obviously passed that quality on to her daughters.

    Just talked to Melanie – she is actually able to laugh this morning – a sure sign that YSAS is doing well. He is due to be released today.

    My, but there is always some excitement up on that hill

  17. Siber-H
    11:33 am on January 2nd, 2013

    Staff, Maggie’s obiturary is very moving and beautiful. Thank you for sharing it with us.
    We did not know the newspapers charged for an obiturary. That is an outrageous sum of money.

  18. Melanie
    11:34 am on January 2nd, 2013

    Where the heck are you reading the Maggie’s Tribute?

    Slight change in YSAS. They are NOT sending him into the wilds today. He has Viral gastroenteritis. If you look it up he has all the symptoms. They want to make sure he can eat and drink without throwing up before they send him home.

    SO will not take a break. Smoochers, please give her some energy!

    Have some phone calls to make. BBL

    (Does anyone know what ROUS stands for? Hint: It’s from a movie.

  19. Princess Sam
    11:41 am on January 2nd, 2013

    YSAS’s diagnosis is Hillary Gastro-Clinton-itis. Dr. Sam out.

  20. Masquers
    11:41 am on January 2nd, 2013

    Kat, stop complaining. Let me tell you…Little Sammie is not so “little”.

  21. Tupper and Gilly
    11:43 am on January 2nd, 2013

    Melanie – click on Staff’s name to get to her blog.
    ( now we KNOW how tired you are- snort)

  22. dawson
    11:43 am on January 2nd, 2013

    No resolutions here.

    I didn’t know there was a charge for obituaries, either. I guess I thought they were done free as a public service. Not even close.

    Sending healing thoughts to YSAS and SO. I hope he will be heading home soon.

  23. Siber-H
    12:01 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Melanie, lol Stover and I do not know ROUS stands for.

    It is a good thing, I’m sure, they are keeping YSAS another day.
    Try to get some rest now, Melanie.

  24. B. Stover
    12:04 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    I think the US in ROUS stands for “Usual Suspects” but I don’t know what the RO stands for.

  25. BearSpiritDog
    12:11 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    We don’t know what ROUS is either…..

  26. Melanie
    12:38 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Hot showers with no phone calls nor dogs is very nice.

    From the movie, “The Princes Bride”?

    Masquers, I am not plump, I’m fluffy!

    Ear scritches to our favorite YSAS from the middle of the mitten. Mom is home just for a little bit on her lunch to snuggle with me!me!me!

    Staff, that is a lovely tribute to your mother.

  30. Riö – The Evil Pug

    ROUS!…heh!snort!heh!…Now I know what Melanie is talking about…snort!

    Staff, that is beautiful. Go Maggie!

  32. Melanie
    1:09 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Riö, I’m happy you got it. I hate explaining my sense of humor.

  33. Tyb
    1:11 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Happy New Year Everyone. According to the urban dictionary ROUS stands for Rodents Of an Unusual Size. I didn’t see how it was used, so I can’t tell whether that explanation works for you.

  34. BearSpiritDog
    1:30 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    TYB, Happiest of New Years to You!

    Rats! Since it was more than 2 days ago, I don’t remember the Princess Bride.

  35. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:31 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Rebecca!…Please check your SDD…snort!…On the double or even triple…heh!

  36. OleyHowlers
    1:36 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Staff and Dawson, we just read Maggie’s obit. What an extraordinary woman. Now we understand why you two turned out so generous and such very good daughters and sisters.
    No idea whar ROUS is, but if it has to do with a certain 2 Kats, and 2 from the far north, and 1 skier-in-training, then we know it spells Trouble.

  37. Melanie
    1:36 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    It is Rodents Of an Unusual Size! It’s right as Westley and Buttercup go into the Fire Swamp and Buttercup asks about the R O T S’s. Westley says he doesn’t think that they exist when WHAM, one takes him down.

    Love that movie.

    Taking a nap now. Just talked to YSAS. They might let him have something to drink in the next hour.

  38. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:38 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Clarkson!…Maybe they will give him a Double Bloody Mary…snort!

  39. Masquers
    1:43 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Dr. Sam: Fluffy indeed.
    btw: The hospital staff seems quite impressed. The white whiskers add just the right touch. Thank Kat no one is questioning our disguise. Must say though…getting pretty sick of jello!

  40. Wookie's Dad
    1:44 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Staff — what an elegant tribute to your mom. Maggie was quite a lady.
    I googled ROUS to find out what it meant — a little scary for hospitals though. Sounds as though YSAS will soon be on the road to recovery, with a little assistance navigating any speedbumps by SO and Dr. Sam.

  41. B. Stover
    1:46 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    I’ve decided to ban acronyms from Stovernia.

    SiberH: What should the punishment be for those who use them?

  42. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    1:54 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Mom goes back to her busy place on Friday. Right now she and dad are in Yosemite for a few days.

    Poor YSAS!

    Hallo SK Lurker. Very nice of you to pop in!

  43. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:04 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Wolfie!…That’s right, suck-up to the Lurker…snort!

  44. Siber-H
    2:10 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Stover, The punishment would be no pie for 24 hours.

  45. B. Stover
    2:39 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Excellent Siber-H. So be it!

  46. OleyHowlers
    3:06 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Siber, That’s not the way things roll in Stovenia.

  47. BearSpiritDog
    3:11 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    No pie! Perhaps just this once you could let it slide. Melanie is under a lot of stress and didn’t know what she was saying. As SnowBella will tell you…cheesecake (and pie) are excellent stress relievers.

  48. B. Stover
    3:25 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Melanie knew what she was saying because she “snickered” afterward.

  49. Melanie
    3:25 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    No pie? No pie? I am saddened with the thought of no pie. Sigh. May I have some cheesecake, please? Just not New York style for now.

    Zoe is now going in for a transfusion. Very anemic. The doctor was impressed by how well she’s been doing in therapy on one third the amount of iron she should have in her system. Zoe figures if she can do this much, imagine how much she will be able to do with the correct amount in her.

    Hmm. Nap-tus Interruotous. Guess I’ll feed the Pack.

  50. Melanie
    3:27 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Heh, heh, heh

  51. B. Stover
    3:48 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    LOL. Pig-Latin? Okay….cheesecake coming up.

    Zoe’s transfusion is to give her more iron?

  52. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:50 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Pie!…So is it No Pie for everyone if someone slips up and uses an acronym, or just the guy who messed up?…grunt!

  53. BearSpiritDog
    3:51 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    But, B, the “rules” had not yet been set when the dastardly deed was done.
    We plead for leniency!

  54. Mollypop's Mom
    3:52 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    B. – I have to ask for a dispensation from the acronym law. After a 40-year career in the computer software field, it’s the way I know how to speak.

  55. BearSpiritDog
    3:53 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    (and pie for everyone)

  56. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:54 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Stover!…She just messed up!…heh!

  57. Barb & Maggie
    3:56 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Maggie was a remarkable lady. We didn’t realize that she was 93. She was born the same year as Barb’s mom who passed in 2001.
    Amazing that she was a WAC and then worked with the COs in the Vietnam War.

  58. Staff
    3:58 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    UhOh. Melanie I had one of those transfusions. I hope they have the bucket and the toilet close by afterwards. Of course it could be just me….yeep.

    Thank you all for the kind words about the tribute to Maggie. The Catty Librarian, Elliot’s Mom, wrote it. Now you know where Elliot got his name. I think it is a great tribute. She was the strongest little old lady and had a great sense of humor. sniff. We all loved her very much.

  59. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:16 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Staff!…I play cards the same way Maggie did…snort!

  60. dawson
    4:25 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    SnowBella: I finally felt strong enough to read your post about Maggie meeting up with those who went before her. I knew I would bawl my eyes out and, yes, I am a puddle of tears but I do thank you for your heartfelt words.

  61. B. Stover
    4:38 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Rio: The law applies only to the one who uses the acronym.

    Mollypop’s Mom: I don’t remember you ever using acronyms here.

    Bear: Is gluten-free cheesecake lenient enough? And remember, it’s only for 24 hours.

  62. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:43 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Stover!…You used an acronym up above…heh!…No pie for you!

  63. Melanie
    4:49 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Hmmm . . If I had a brain (after the last few weeks, months years I would try to do an entire comment in acronyms. No worries about that!

    TPTB (sorry, B. just had to do it) have decided Zoë’s transfusion will be on Friday. She will have no more PT until Saturday.

    No word on YSAS’s Magical Hospital Tour (as SO puts it), but if you want to see YSAS’s looking like poop I have that picture!

  64. Barb & Maggie
    5:02 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    I think I got that one Melanie – The Powers That Be. Sometimes we get a serious brain cramp trying to figure out your posts!

  65. B. Stover
    5:08 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Oh dear….I guess LOL is an acronym. No pie for me.

  66. B. Stover
    5:09 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Since I get no pie anyway, I have to LOL at Barb’s brain cramp!

  67. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:23 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Poop!…I want to see Clarkson looking like poop!…snort!

    Hey B., what about SOL?

  69. OleyHowlers
    5:51 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    We forgot to tell youse … Yesterday while in the barn, Mom peeked in the “ups stall”. That is the extra stall where the bikes live and where UPS, FEDEX, and USPS are instructed to leave packages due to a certain paper-chewing Kat. Guess what? There was a package there for me me me and me! It must have been delivered on Monday and nobody remembered to look, because yesterday was a holiday. What do you think was in that package? The most amazing book ever: Born to Run, autographed by Albert Lewis and Justin Savidis!!!!! This book is awesome. So many gorgeous athletes with such big personalities. Wow.

  70. B. Stover
    6:12 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Sam: SOL is an acronym…but I like it. I learned it here.

  71. Basil and Sage
    6:24 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Whew! That was a close one. Mama just got an email from the shelter that had the Corgi in New York. They did find him a home already, so Mama and Dad don’t have to worry about him. Thank goodness! What on the he k do we need with ANOTHER stinkin’ Corgi.

    ( But Mama is just a little bit sad)

  72. T.C.
    6:30 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    What is SOL?

    (Whispering) B&S, don’t let down your defenses…I’ll bet there are other corgis in need of a home.

  73. Siber-H
    6:37 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    T.C. SOL means poop out of luck

  74. T.C.
    6:40 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Oh duh. Mommy and Daddy do say that one all the time, but I was thinking it was different here..similar to lol or something. Thanks Siber.

  75. Melanie
    6:57 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Here is my poor guy. Now that the splorting has stopped, there is a different problem . . He is up to jello, but jello isn’t up to him. He is leaving extra containers around for a certain doctor.

  76. Mollypop's Mom
    7:06 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    T.C. – A couple of years ago Prof. B. didn’t know what SOL meant. (Nothing new there.) We taught her. A bit later we were having major blog problems so we went on another great mission. B. told Mike Baker he was SOL and attacked him with Melanie’s cane.

    I love this blog!

    7:41 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Thanks, MollysMom. That was befor my (blog)time.

    By the way, Mommy said she deserves the same acronym dispensation as you since she spent almost as many (33) years in the same field. Youse guys are ancient. Tee hee.

  82. B. Stover
    7:43 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    7:57 pm on January 2nd, 2013

    Just talked to YSAS before I got up the stairs. The jello wasn’t working or working too well. They decided to help with digestion they would try yogurt. He threw up again. Sigh. Now they don’t know if they’ll let him out tomorrow.

    OK – so now that we have the Windows 8 in the computer, and it thought it was too good to talk to our old printer, and we went out and got a new wireless printer….
    tonight was the Big Installation Night. There was a document in email that we absolutely had to get printed out. We unpacked the gigunda printer, got it all unwrapped and all the tape off each and every little nether section, got the ink cartridges installed and started following the instructions to introduce the printer to the computer. AS PER THE INSTRUCTIONS – we inserted the CD into the computer and tried to install the software, only to get the message that this PRINTER was now too good for the COMPUTER! GAH, GAH and double GAH!
    Mama was ready to go kick some Staples techie butt, when she had a brainstorm, and told the computer that there was no installation disc and to connect anyway. And the computer did it! And we printed out the invoice. HA! Take that, you snide little tech expert!
    Next thing you know we will have this bloody 8 thing figured out.

    Question!…Does anyone know the rules about “Media Mail”?…snort!…Specifically, if I send like 3 or 4 books via media mail, can I box them up or do they have to be in padded envelopes?…grunt!

    Temperatures!….Finally, if we can believe our weatherman, temperatures are going to rise to the balmy Alaskan temperatures by this friday and the weekend…grunt!…It has been so cold here for so long I do not remember warmness outside…sniff!…Inside, it’s like an oven cause her mother is always cold…grunt!…Another reason we stay downstairs as much as possible.

    Rio: I’ve only sent media mail in boxes before. The book I sent to the Howlers—the one they just got today—was boxed. I sent it out way before the holidays and was told it should get there on Christmas Eve. Lies!

    More to Rio: Check your SDD.

    Media Mail can be packaged any way. It just can’t have anything but media in it. No letters or other non media items.

    At least it is that way in Clifford. heh.

    We are still with YSAS, but we may have to change our disguise from Dr. Sam, to what? I don’t know. We ran into a bit of a problem with our latest attempt to get some nourishment. We’ve moved on from jello to pudding. Pudding is great stuff. As a paw reached out for the pudding, Dr. Sam’s masked slipped revealing her adorable, but non-human face. We made a run for it. If it weren’t for the velcro I don’t know what would have happened. We almost left Masquers and Sam in the other hallway as we rounded the corner. The extra-sticky velcro was worth the investment. We love YSAS and are happy to serve, but this mission isn’t without it’s perils. But for the grace of good grammar, go I…
