    Good morning, everyone! Hey Coco, nice color on your hoodie, one of our favorites.
    friday, Friday FRIDAY! It doesn’t get much better 🙂

    Happy trails to the Awesome Dawson!
    Happy sales to The Royal Mum and the Storyteller!

    AJ, I think ‘lil Rose is the Black and Tan dog, right! I hope she gets to be your bestest lead dog ever!

    Lots of talking to people I know and strangers last night. I am completely exhausted!

    Yesterday was my last visit to the Unemployment Office. They look over the proof of what jobs I had searched for, and told me my checks will be cut off in about another month.

    I guess it is time to shine up the old tin cup…..

    Good Friday morning all. Yeah, the color purple has special meaning around here!

    Barb is off to the car dealer for some sort of recall on her Ford Escape. Something to do with faulty power steering, but luckily she has not had a problem so far.

    Coco is a real cutie!

    Cocoa, Very, very kool purple hoodie.
    enough said…I am a kat after all.
    HOH & everyone, happy Friday ^..^

    RIO! If I showed up on your friend’s door step, would she take me in, like she took in Beau!

    Hello Everyone–Conan here, I got to this keyboard out of sheer desperation. I was taken to the bad place yesterday, forced to stand on the scale despite my best efforts to foil their plans–then darkness. Now I’m back at home with NO HAIR and a horrible cone of shame that keeps getting stuck on things when I try to go through doors or climb into bed.
    Edgar and Ms. Pretty are looking at me like they don’t know me. Edgar especially doesn’t seem to like the cone (Haha! He should try living inside one!)
    My lady (and I’m wondering if I can ever trust her again) says I have arthritis in my knees and had to have a cyst on my jaw removed but that I’m doing very very well. I don’t feel very very well though. AND she’s late getting my breakfast (it’s also hard to eat with the cone.) Can someone rescue me?

    Hello All–It’s been a weird and expensive week, and I still have meds to pick up–for both Ms. Pretty and Conan (I see he’s learned to access the blog).
    Wose–I sympathize, and since I’m down about a thousand dollars (OK I’m rounding) this week, perhaps you’d like to come in with me on a super-sized dogloo instead of conventional housing.
    I did have the foresight to lay in a supply of champagne and oatmeal cookies with which to toast and celebrate our Purple friend’s life. Not sure how to transport–everyone here is sulking.
    Coco–Love the hoodie.
    Dear supportive friends (and thanks for tying the quilt around Conan)–Love you all. Back after altering the nation’s income distribution single-handedly.

    10:16 am on July 25th, 2014

    Conan, you poor thing! A cone of shame! People sneaking up on you when you are not looking. I am sure you will feel better when you take the dancing giraffe pills.

    One more thing–I was too distraught to mark Raymond Chandler’s birthday on the 23rd, so am doing so now with the attached.

    Coco is a cutie. (To be honest, I could do without the hoodie.)

    I hope Conan starts to feel better.

    Rose: Just take a few deep breaths. You’ll find something soon.

    Good morning all.

    Conan: Kudos to you for Accessing the Blog this morning.
    We are very sorry to hear of Your Ordeal yesterday. That Cone is the Worst! But your Mom is the Best.

    Wose: We have every confidence Something Good is in your near future.
    Please check your SDD when able.

    We just returned from getting wonderfluffed. It is a wonder we and our fluff are still alive. We even had to be subjected to nails being clipped!!! Conan, we understand how you feel. We will never trust our mom again either.
    At least we are not in cones. Those are the worst. Hope you get yours off soon, Conan.

  13. T.C.
    11:25 am on July 25th, 2014

    It’s here!!! It’s here!!! Mommy and I got our cooking apron! It is even more fabulous than it looked on the auction page!!! I am so very glad I bid and won. And…that Lurker included a massive number of recipes for treats for me me me! Mommy and I will be making those together. Thanks, LL!

  14. kat
    11:30 am on July 25th, 2014

    And….I got the nightlight I bid on. I am now hoping every day there will be new packages in the mail for me me me! Momma says that will not happen.
    It is amazing how this nightlight is even cooler in person. It is 3-D. Only thing is that it looks just like Teddy and so I feel bad. I feel that I should indeed be sending this to my pal Teddy.

  15. Billy's Buddy
    11:55 am on July 25th, 2014

    T.C: So happy the apron and recipes arrived. Have fun!

    Good morning, All!

    Rose and Conan, thinking of youse.

  16. Wose-the small and meek
    11:55 am on July 25th, 2014

    BSD: Checked and responded.

    T.C.: I hope you will put a picture of your mommy in her new apron and you baking treats!

    KAT: I saw the perfect bling for your collar. Is your collar really green?

  17. Kat
    12:11 pm on July 25th, 2014

    I only wear green, Wose. I have a neon green invisible fence collar. I have hunter green travel and slip collars. I also have a hunter green harness for hiking.

    Coco! Chase cats, do you? Try chasing this one Amigo!

  20. Herd of Hounds
    1:04 pm on July 25th, 2014

    WE prefer to chase squirrels and chipmunks (and an occasional birdie but mom frowns on that).

  21. Barb & Maggie
    1:11 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Back from the car dealer and errands.

    We got these wonderful disposable clean up pads as a free sample at the vets awhile back. They are by Bissel and are called Stomp and Go. The vet says the come in boxes of 20 and are $50.00. That is $2.50 per “accident clean up” which seems expensive. Has anyone else used them or do you know of a source? They work well and are super convenient, but we are not spending 50 bucks!

  22. Siber-H
    1:39 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Conan, Hope you feel better soon, pal. My mom says for you not to give your mom too much trouble.

    Barb, The pads are new to us. Fifty Bucks!!
    I would check and see if Amazon sells them.

    Kat, Green is my mom’s favorite color. I think you would look very pretty in green.

    Wose, Hugs and be good to yourself.

  23. Barb & Maggie
    1:53 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Conan, You are on the road to recovery. Conan will be coneless soon.

    Siber, Great suggestion! They do carry them and much cheaper if you buy them as an add-on to another order.

  24. Riö -The Evil Pug
    3:19 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Rose!…I am sure if you showed up on our doorstop dressed in a Pug Suit my friend would take you in…snort!…Practice your snorting, chorkeling, grunting, twirling, yeeeping, burping and farting techniques. I’m sure with a little practice you can pull off being one of us…heh!heh!…But remember, all the toyz are mine, all the food is mine, and you will never ever get to sleep in my warm soft bed. No matter how much you beg…grunt!

  25. Riö -The Evil Pug
    3:21 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Maskers!…Turn your Tracker attention to your SDD right now!…snort!…Just remember – things could change…heh!heh!

  26. Kat
    3:25 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Siber! My momma’s favorite color is green too! How about that.
    And, yes I do look very pretty in green. It matches that little spot in my one eye that Momma still likes to say is green.

  27. Masquers
    3:34 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Rose! This is big! There may actually be fotoz of me, me, me (and Bear. sniff) on the way to you, you, you!

    Riö: At my post…coordinates set…over and out.

  28. Dawson
    3:37 pm on July 25th, 2014

    The plane is ready to board! Whew! I barely made it here on time. Wonder what I forfot to bring.

    Conan: I feel for you, buddy! Hope that collar comes off asap.

  29. Siber-H
    3:42 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Are we going to track Dawson? Tracking is fun!

  30. c.hobbit
    3:43 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Conan: it sounds like you have a very special collar that costs $1,000. Wowzer! Remember, if you play your cards right –and I am sure you will– you might get some extra treaties out of the deal. It could be that Edgar and Ms Pretty are smelling the icky scent of antiseptic on you and are avoiding you.

    Hello all. It looks like I have another 2 half-days of painting: a second coat on the ceiling and the new client doesn’t like the accent wall and asked me to repaint it.

  31. BearSpiritDog
    3:55 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Dawson! Thank Dog you made it!

    C.Hobbit: What’s this? a New Client? Have I been reading every other word again?

  32. Diane C.
    4:03 pm on July 25th, 2014

    B and M–I found various sized pkgs of Stomp and go on Amazon–you might also try Drs. Foster and Smith.

  33. Teddy Ruff Rider
    4:06 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Kat — thank you of thinking of me and your kind offer, but I would feel really bad if you were deprived of the wonderful nightlight that you bid on and won in the big auction. It would be much better for you to keep it and then you can always think of me when it is on. Also, mum’s the word, as this is not something that Zeta needs to know about. She can be a little jealous at times (per yesterday’s post).

  34. Wose-the small and meek
    4:11 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Masquers, Photos! Be still my beating heart!

    Hobbit: What this about re-painting?

    Kat: I bet green not only sets off your beautiful eyes, but also your lovely, red fur.

    Safe trip, Awesome!

    Wonder when our Pixie leaves the top of the world?

  35. Diane C.
    4:15 pm on July 25th, 2014

    …and had I bothered to read all the way through I owuld have seen that others did the Amazon search, too. (Also a quite affordable source for glucosamine and turmeric chewies recommended for arthritic four-leggeds.)
    O’H–Any chance of a photo of your wonderfluffed selves?
    Actually, any pictures of any prize recipients (with prizes) would be a treat…
    Anyone–(Still a little slow, as usual) Is Hubbard squash a summer or winter squash.
    HOH–I used to abbreviate FPS as s/he/it and anyone who wanted to chortle about it could do so. Quietly.
    Question: What is the worst thing that could happen if I took the cone of shame off Mr. C. early? Stitches are on the outside of his jaw near his mouth, and while he could theoretically scratch there, I’ve never seen him do so. He’s not big on scratching.

    BSD: when my father died, my sister and I inherited his shares in a computer store (which he founded in the 1980s), an office building and 4 apartments. My sister (the CPA) does the accounting, I do the painting and cleanup, my nephew manages the computer store and the properties and my niece documents everything. One of the office suites was empty this month for refurbishing and a new client just rented it. In the next two months there will be vacancies at the apartments so I expect to do a lot of painting. Since I no longer paint 8-10 hours a day, it drags out.

    4:16 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Safe and fun travels, Dawson!

    Treasures! More treasures delivered from HOH and CHobbit.

    Bone cookie cutters, great recipes, yogurt frosting mix, and cat tote!

    Christmas in July, as they say.

  38. Siber-H
    4:24 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Diane, I don’t think any of us are qualified to answer your question about the cone. My mom would call the vet with that question.

    The big box pet stores have “soft” cones for sale. Mom doesn’t know anymore about them except to say they exist, and are suppose to be much easier for the dog to deal with.

  39. Barb & Maggie
    4:30 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Diane, Hubbard is a winter squash, has a hard shell and keeps much longer than summer squash. Good thing, huh?

    I will check Fosters. I have bought GLC 1000 thru Amazon and they have it for a good price. It is around $43.00 but the girls get only 1/4 tsp a day so it really lasts. Anything over $35 is free shipping too. I have been buying the Premium Edge salmon and potato dog food thru Amazon too, as I can’t find it around here.

  40. Barb & Maggie
    4:31 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Diane, Any chance the other dogs would bother the stitches?

  41. Masquers

    4:58 pm on July 25th, 2014

    RIO! I think I can swing the pug thing. Since I make most of those noises anyway, I think I would just need the suit. Since you won’t share, I will have to bring Mr. Carrot and ‘Lil Carrot with me.

  43. Masquers
    5:14 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Late departure but Dawson should be landing in Dawson Creek very shortly.

  44. Dawson
    5:16 pm on July 25th, 2014

    I have safely landed in Dawson Creek to complete the first leg of our trip. Next we fly to Vancouver and I hope to get a nap on the way.

  45. Masquers
    5:27 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Hey, Dawson! The temperature is a balmy 72 degrees on Vancouver Island. WoooHooo!

  46. Herd of Hounds
    5:29 pm on July 25th, 2014

    sob, Sob, SOB. Dawson is traveling and we won’t hear much from her over the next 2 weeks. Billy’s Buddy, glad your package got there on time 🙂

  47. Staff
    5:53 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Maybe Dawson can go to a coffee shop with internet access and let us know she is having fun. Just occasionally. We will miss her.

    CHobbit. I am looking forward to pics of your Mom’s machine. Also put the serial number on that post. Then I can tell more about it.

  48. Diane C.
    6:35 pm on July 25th, 2014

    SiberH–thanks for the information. If he doesn’t seem more comfortable after today I will look into it.
    B and M–Unless he gets into a scrap with Edgar (and they’re both too busy trying to beat the heat at the moment) I don’t think so–thanks for brining up something I should ponder further.

  49. Miss Pretty
    6:38 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Conan is wearing this stupid mind-control device (or possibly a space helmet) for some reason. I didn’t even recognize him until I got close enough to sniff under his tail–same old Conan! I thought he was working under cover–or pretending to–at first, but he doesn’t seem to be enjoying it much.
    I don’t know if he can read, but I’ll tell him about your nice messages (except that bad pun from Rio, but who knows, maybe he’d think it was funny).

  50. c.hobbit

    Greetings from the wilds of Rhode Island. Our tent is up and waterproof. Our tables are in place with table covers. The rest of the physical plant is done. Now we just have to be back on the show grounds at the crack of dawn to set up the jewelry.
    This is one of our really big shews and we are looking forward to it. The Storyteller’s favorite part of the show is the ice cream stand across the street where they sell Frozen Pudding ice cream.

    Conan – we feel for you, buddy, we really do. As long as you have that cone, maybe you can get your mom to fill it with ice cream.

  52. Wose-the small and meek
    7:22 pm on July 25th, 2014

    T & G, Is that anything like frozen custard? There is a place in St. Louis call Ted Drews that sells frozen custard. In the summer the lines are around the block! It is that yummy!

    Good luck at the shew!

    Rose, I am sure your don’t make ALL those noises!

    Barb-frozen pudding is an extra rich, nutmeg/rum flavored ice cream with raisins and sometimes other dried fruit in it.

    The other night the Storyteller got a mascarpone, sweet Italian cream and blueberry ice cream. I admit to having a bite of that….oh my!

  63. Barb & Maggie
    8:42 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Barb has been having a Weight Watcher’s frozen ice cream bar for her late night snack. I think she would gladly trade it for some of the Storyteller’s frozen pudding!

  64. Kat
    8:50 pm on July 25th, 2014

    Ice cream! Don’t get me started. Someone around here decided they needed to cut back on ice cream, and somehow that means I must cut back. Go figure. I am a skinny, undernourished husky girl.

    Time for me to tuck myself in bed, and drag the rest of the family with me. Tomorrow is a really big day for us.

  65. Dawson
    8:51 pm on July 25th, 2014

    My mama is back home. I’ve tucked her under the Quilt along with Conan and ML.

    Conan: I apologize for the sparkles and glitter Belle Starr added to your cone. I turned my back for a couple of seconds and there you have it.

    ML: If you are staying over at sleep away camp, the Thieves insist on bringing you the fixings for s’mores. I will stay with you in case you get home sick or someone tells scary stories whilst holding the flash light under their chin.

    Last one or first the next morning–The whole frozen custard/pudding thing sounds fabulous (and I’m guessing not Low Fat Foods–did you see what I did there, BSD?). Does one need an ice-cream maker to do that rum/nutmeg thing (which sounds fabulous)?
    Luna–No need to apologize, I think Conan licked the sparkles off during one of his many naps. I put Pretty’s Dance-Hall Girl hair ornament (which she gets from the groomer) on her so she wouldn’t be jealous. Edgar remains somewhat aloof but I’m trying to make it up to him.
    Belle Starr–thank you.
    Dawson–Travel safely and stay hydrated (harder than you’d think while airborne for long stretches). So many people of this blog seem to travel so much (or am I just conflating many people’s journeys?).
    I just let Edgar lick the screen–big handsome Lhasa kiss to all.
