    Happy New Year’s to LizF and Ruby from Down Under!

    I know where I won’t be going – Times Square where 1 million people will be crammed into pens – does that really sound like fun?

    Good morning Dawson and everyone! some neighbors get fireworks ???? for New Years. We don’t mind partying, but the boomers annoy us. Zeus, you could escort darling Darah Thea and her little sister, Tinker Belle if you are so inclined.
    Enjoy this last day of 2016 and may 2017 be bright and beautiful.

    Good morning! Darah, I will pick up you and Tinker at party time sharp. (There won,t be fireworks, will there?? I’m asking for someone else.)

    I won’t be doing what the people in the photo are doing. (I’m wondering when that was taken.)

    Good morning all.

    I see that party planning was going on late last night. I guess I had better warn Faye about the party. ahhh, cough cough. Keep any wine or beer hidden. She doesn’t like alcohol in the store. She is really sort of stern about that.

    Macy and Rio (and Beau) Be ready. Staff will be there just befoe the party starts. Keiko and Henry are looking forward to their first real party. they want to meet Masquers. I wonder if he will be around?

    Dawson, I heard that there may be as many as 2 Mil in New York. Probably a mil in Chicago. Personally (being a wimp) I wouldn’t want to be in any big crowds this year, even tho security is beefed up. Sad, but it is the world we live in.

    Quiet evening at home planned here. Tomorrow I get my new flat screen t v with the updated Comcast box. My son said I am a dinosaur because I still order dvds thru the mail! Guess I am going to have to go with the times!

    Grizz and I have just returned from mall walking and a visit to Starbucks. Lots of folks in both places. Because I like to keep ahead of things, birthday cards for family members were purchased for the 1st quarter of the year. Grizz will be turning 60 this year!

    Lucia and Bluecat: Thank you for the New Year card!

  11. BMALS
    4:57 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Wose, You are far more organized than I am with the card issue. I write all family birthdays in my planner at the beginning of the year, but am terrible about sending out cards.

    I have had my nappy and am ready to stay up late with the big folks tonight.

    Zeus sorry about the delay responding…had friends stop by for the afternoon and the S son showed up with a 5-6 week old puppy he found on the side of the road.
    We can reassure Zeus the fireworks will NOT happen while he is here!
    We are so excited ????.

    We have lived on Long Island for the past 26 years and have never once considered going to the Times Square event. We did go to the Macy’s parade maybe four times and that was challenging enough. We are all set with snacks, a few things to drink and things to watch. I like being old sometimes.

    The black-eyed peas are soaking for tomorrow’s dinner. I finished the snow shoveling (we finally got some snow) and am set up with water, tea and a cat. The world junior hockey game between the US and Canada is on (recorded so don’t tell me who won if you know) and I am set for a couple hours. I might still be up at midnight on the east coast but for sure I’ll be asleep by the time that hour strikes here.

    What!…Am I doing?…snort!…I’m waiting for my ride to the partee-down-quilt-shop in ND….chuffle!…I’ve arranged for Faye to be …ahem!…misplaced during the party. I hope Staff or Alice have the keys to the little shop o’ quilts…whooooHoooo!

    We just delivered a vat o’ beer to the quilt shop. Not to worry, we camouflaged it by paining ‘root!’ on the side of it.

    Dear Blog Family–As it is FINALLY raining a good solid amount here (and therefore everyone is worried about driving in the extreme weather) I will be joining those of you seeing 2016 out quietly. Edgar and Ms. Pretty will be having tomato AND meatish taco mix with their kibble and I will be alternating between Twilight Zone and Downton Abbey reruns.
    Tomorrow I can’t hike up Mt. Hollywood, but I’ll find something comparable to do.
    I’m reading a book called “Normal” by Warren Ellis, which has produced at least one sentence to enter alongside my other favorites.* Here’s little something to help y’all through your farewells to a challenging year: “Perhaps unwisely, he had voiced this concern while being helped up into a ridiculous SUV with the footprint of a tank and a front fender apparently designed to atomize houses on impact, and was told to “shut up” in a tone that strongly suggested the nurse knew how to murder people really well.”
    For those of you with dates, the above might be useful if conversation lags.

  19. Thieves!
    7:31 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Rio: When was the last time you needed keys? It’s like you don’t even know us. Heh.

  20. Diane C.
    7:34 pm on December 31st, 2016

    I hope and trust all of you under the quilt are starting to feel much better and don’t let up on the fluids. Ditto everyone at the quilt shop.
    *As you may or may not be aware, my all-time fave is T. Jefferson Parker’s “Shepherd felt an overwhelming desire to do something, but the feeling passed.”
    Words by which to live…sort of…

  21. Rio - The Evil Pug
    7:44 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Thieves!…((flat head smack!))….snort!…Of course I’m not worrit about getting into the quilt shop any longer. I hope you dropped Faye off in good health at the “other” shop we discussed earlier…wiffle!

    I just had some Chinese food and the fortune cookie message said The current year will bring you much happiness. I am taking that to be 2017, since there are only a few hours left of 2016.

    I am having some sparkling organic pear juice. Yummy!

    7:46 pm on December 31st, 2016

    DianeC, so good to hear from you and your plans. We too, are watching Downton
    Abbey. It is the first time. We of the Herd are accompanying the Zeus to the partay. The peeps and S son will partake of Hopping John at midnight . S son’s puppy, like most of we HOH is black and white.

  24. dawson
    7:58 pm on December 31st, 2016

    HOH: What a cute puppy! Someone is missing that little guy.

    DianeC: “…the feeling passed.” I love that quote too.

    I’ve ordered a huge dog food cake topped with balls. Meatballs and peanut butter balls and salmon balls. It should be delivered to the quilt shop right about…now. Happy New Year’s Eve everyone!

    Happy 2017 to all.

    When it rains, look for rainbows; when it’s dark, look for stars.

    BMALS – you’ll be happy with Netflix, by the way. It’s binge-worthy!
    There are many choices including British procedurals 🙂

  26. BMALS
    8:14 pm on December 31st, 2016

    HOH, Is that the puppy he found on the side of the road? Sorry, but that does not look like a 5 week old puppy! No way! Is it losing baby teeth yet?

    Bluecat, I have Netflix now, but it is the one where they send me movies in the mail. I have to switch to streaming.

    8:26 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Rio: Don’t beat your flat head up about it. That reminds us, we should ask Teddy’s Paw if the rest of the night can fall under attorney-Outlaw privilege.

  28. Herd of Hounds
    8:39 pm on December 31st, 2016

    BMALS, her teeth are much like Tinker’s. Hope Tinker and Darah are being polite for Zeus.

  31. Rio - The Evil Pug
    8:44 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Supper!…We had a nice supper of baked Alaskan cod, baked potato and green beans tonight….slurp!…Now I am good and ready for someone and their ride to come pick me up and take me to the quilt shop…snort!…Beau seems to think he is going too, so make extra room for him and his little clip-board. He is going to keep track of who is naughty or nice at tonight’s party…chuffle!

  32. Thieves!
    8:46 pm on December 31st, 2016

    HOH–Two handsome dudes in that photo.
    Dawson, the cake sounds fabulous–almost tempted to stick my head out the door, but…
    BMALS–I vote for 2017 as well (I wish I’d thought of Chinese, but oh well…)
    Bluecat, Thieves, Wose, Terry Ballard, Rio, Beau, B. Stover, Staff, Zeus and everyone else checking in previously or while I’m turning my brain into Malt-o-Meal in front of the TV–Happy new Year (whenever it hits your time zone). May you have a prosperous, healthy and happy 2017.

    Plus, here’s a little bit of tradition–I think it’s a bit late for Vienna at this point–they’re already in 2017.

    9:20 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Barb!…Someone here commiserates with you about leaving 2016 and going forward into the unknown…snort!

  38. BMALS
    9:23 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Rio, 2016 has not been a favorite around here. And it just claimed another one – William Christopher from Mash has died.

    HOH, I think your found pup is more like 10-12 weeks. I was asking about teeth because between 3-4 months they start losing baby teeth.

  39. Rio - The Evil Pug
    9:23 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Thieves!…Against his better black-pug judgement he is scratching out your names on the other side and putting them on the nice side….snort!…He still has the ability to Edit his little clip-board, so watch your paws at the partee-down-quilt-shop tonight boyz!…chuffle!

    9:50 pm on December 31st, 2016

    10:01 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Rio, not to worry. There is a whole kitchen area off to the left of that picture. Fridge, sink, microwave, 2 kitchen tables and a buffet table. Yup, we are ready!

    Here is another part of the store. Everyone is moving fabric like crazy because I told them that it might happen that food gets thrown! LOL

    10:15 pm on December 31st, 2016

    10:17 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Yikes!
    It would be just like 2016 to end with a blog bug. I had trouble connecting to the internet 20 minutes ago but all is well now.
    Here’s to all the Plunderer’s I got to meet in the last year…and all those I didn’t! Sip, sip, glug!

    10:21 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Careful with the virtual likker there Dawson. It is mighty powerful stuff. You want to be able to swim in the vat o beer later don’t you ???

    Hey! There is Macy the Min-Pin and who is that with her? Is that a Red-bone Hound I see? Yeep. I think that is what I would call canoodleing.

  64. Herd of Hounds
    10:23 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Wow, lots of friends here. Is that vat o’ beer big enough for everyone?

  65. Staff
    10:24 pm on December 31st, 2016

    That ladder, the one you can just see in the left side of the first picture. That ladder is 10 feet tall. So when you jump off it into the vat o beer it is going to be a YUGE splash.

  66. dawson
    10:30 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Staff: You don’t necessarily have to climb all the way to the top before you jump into the vat.
    I like to get my beer drinking done early!

  69. Beau - The Black Pug
    10:37 pm on December 31st, 2016

  70. Staff
    10:37 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Why is Alice chasing Beau? Has she gone bonkers? She used to be such a quiet feline. Tsk tsk tsk. Beau is hiding under the kitchen table. A useful place if you want scraps but sort of out in the open.

  71. BMALS
    10:38 pm on December 31st, 2016

    What a charming and tidy looking shop. All arranged by color. Love it!

    Snigglefritz!
    I wasn’t sitting far enough away from the vat! I’m soaked. Luckily there is lots of material here to wipe off with.

    Henry: My three cat friends elected to stay home. “No way!” they said, when I asked if they wanted to come.

    I am dolled up for my date with ML. Earlier today, when I was practicing for the mannequin challenge, my Lady clipped my nails. Don’t you just hate it when that happens?

    Here is a photo of me practicing. I think I nailed it.

    10:47 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Beau, If you look around you will see an area that has only black and white fabrics. It is about 20 feet from the vat 0 beer. You can blend in there and she will never find you.

  81. Zeus
    10:49 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Hey hey hey! Here I am, with not one, but TWO ladies. Does someone want to distract Tinker so I can get some alone time with Darrah?

  82. dawson
    10:49 pm on December 31st, 2016

    What the… Darah! Sheesh! You knocked the glass right out of my hand! Somebody give me a dry bolt of cloth. And another beer!

    Happy almost New Year, Gang. JUnior and I were able to get away without a chaperone, and we can stay as long as we like. The ‘rents returned from their party, where New Years was celebrated at 8:30. We did our traditional firepit burn of all the bad stuff from this year. That took a long time, as you can imagine. But now Momma is completely worn out and ready for bed. She lost her voice this afternoon, and had to spend the entire party yelling with her pathetic cackle. So therefore, she will have no idea when I get home. Let the fun begin!

  87. Macy the Party Pin

    Macy Party Pin, Where have you been? I picked you up in the jet and Mr. Redbone Hound was with you. Once we were here you two disappeared. Hmmmmmm. I wonder….

    You can try to act innocent, but, heh heh heh.

    Staff: Ooh! This must be that thick flannel you use to make those pillowcases. I love snuggling into that soft flannel at night! I could easily have a little nap but, no!

    Tinker: Drop it! Drop it, I said!

    Rio: I brought a sled full of hot wings for everyone at the party. I also loaded up the trailer with enough hot wings just for you. Help yourself.

    Beau: Here is a pen. Please put my name under the nice list. That’s s-n-o-w-b-e-l-l-a.

  106. dawson
    11:32 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Here Rio! This flannel is fit for a king!

    I ordered delivery of an assortment of tapas. That’s fancy schmancy for appetizers or or-dee-vors. Here they are now! Hot wings are in there somewhere. Slobber. More salmon bonbons too!

    I ordered enough for the quilting staff but maybe I should bring some to the front of the store so they don’t see the shenanigans going on back here. Luckily those quilters have one track minds and aren’t paying any attention to all the racket here in the back.

  107. dawson
    11:36 pm on December 31st, 2016

    SnowBella’s hot wings are hot – like the ones I had in Buffalo! It’s a good thing she got lots because the fancy-schmancy ones were gone in 2 shakes (there was only 12 of them and they were mild).

    Here Tinker! Wanna try a dive into the vat’o’beer! It’s a real fun experience, let me tell you!

  108. dawson
    11:40 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Here! I’ll throw a meatball up in the air over the vat and you see if you can catch it. Ready? Go!

  109. dawson

    Darah! Glug! Where’d you come from? Give the little guy a chance. Sheesh!

    Rio + hot wings = somebody crack a window

  111. Alice M. Johnson
    11:58 pm on December 31st, 2016

    Dawson, You are correct. The quilters have moved to the back room and are having a great time. Staff is in there somewhere. Probably behind a post.

    They do not care what is happening in the front of the store. Sometimes they do come into the kitchen area though…hmmmmm.

  112. dawson
    11:58 pm on December 31st, 2016

    A minute and a half to go!

  113. Herd of Hounds

    Whew! I am DOG tired. I hope someone cleans this place up before the quilters leave the back room. Now I think I know why Faye says no alcohol in the quilt store.

    Someone is going to have to wash and iron all those fabrics. And clean up the spilled beer. Yeep! Look at that layer of fur over everthing. Sticky fur. ACK!

    I am sure Faye will not notice a thing in the morning if YOU CLEAN IT ALL UP. Only when the party is done, of course.

    We are going to need some full body hair nets before we wash, fluff and fold.

    12:16 am on January 1st, 2017

    dawson, Over in the corner where Henry is hiding watching is some fabric fleece that is named Cuddle. You should try there! It is fab! I could nap with you.

    If Alice ever lets go of that Pug she is going to have to fly that Lear again. Good thing she refuses to get her long golden locks wet in the beer vat. She is rather fussy that way.

  127. Herd of Hounds
