Wolves Cry?

“Hey,” says Spence. “Here’s a story out of Rockford, Illinois, where twins were delivered by C-section, one at 11:59 December 31st 2010 and the second on the stroke of midnight, 2011. So they have different birthdays – weren’t even born in the same year.”

“Been there,” says Admin. “Done that.”

“In Crying Wolf?”

“Right. But no C-section.”

Wolves cry? Howling, sure, but crying? I don’t get it.

From Crying Wolf:

One more vacation note. There was a birthday party for the twins on the thirty-first. Boats overflowed the natural harbor, four or five planes landed, perhaps a hundred party goers came in all, although not Mr. Zorn, en route to Zurich, or possibly Lahore. Nat learned that Grace had been born on the thirty-first, at 11:53 P.M., but Izzie hadn’t arrived until 12:13 A.M, on the first. They hadn’t been born on the same day, not even in the same year.

    Chet, you keep showing me some of our expressions and this makes me wonder how we came up with them. I haven’t read Crying Wolf.

    I think Crying Wolf came from that story of the boy shepherd who cried “wolf” because it was fun to see all the villagers rush to help, then when the wolf really came no one would believe it was for real. I think they all got eaten up.

    Peter and the wolf, isn’t that where the saying started?

    We live about an hour from Rockford, so that story has been in the news here. The c-section was planned and so was the birthing time. Story is that doctors thought it would be nice for the babies to have separate b-days, but personally, we wonder if they did it for publicity.

    Melanie, Is the Raven Dan’s totem. I can look it up in my Indian lore book if you want. It has all the animal totems listed.

    Sam: (Haven’t heard from you for a while. Welcome back!) You are correct. The expression is from the Aesop fable.

    Good morning all.

    Hi B, I didn’t get to do much posting over the Christmas holidays because a certain Poodle Head was here. She hogs the computer.

    Wolves!…. Crying Wolf was a very good book…snort!… A real sociopath or psychopath was one of the characters…grunt!.. What’s the difference between sociopath and psychopath? Whatever it is, the Charming Mr. Abrahams sure can write that kind of character…sniff!…Makes one wonder sometimes how come he is so good at nailing deranged personalities….wheeze!

  8. Melanie
    11:36 am on January 4th, 2011

    Good Morning All, I have now been punctured (on purpose). Working on the right side muscles that are rebelling against the cane.

    Sam: Poodle Head? snicker

    Morning B. Stover: like the poem, how many of us bought into THAT fairy tale?

    Barb & MagPie: Dan’s raven is a Zuni Fetish. Made of jet with a turquoise eye. I don’t know how that differs from totems.

    Riö: An interesting question . . . from http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-the-difference-between-a-psychopath-and-a-sociopath.htm . . .

    Blurred lines here. Both manifest around the age of 15 with perhaps some animal cruelty. They don’t care about other people’s feelings and are all ME! Me! ME! Me!

    (Unlike a certain Pug, who is also about ME!, but has a heart of gold)

    Sociopaths are “thought” to live on the fringes of society because they are more impulsive and their thought processes are less organized.

    Psychopaths are “thought” to be very intelligent and very manipulative.

    The book I just finished on my KINDLE!, The Forest has a psychopath in it. Very charming, manipulative and didn’t care about anyone but what the character could get of them.

    PA does psychopaths very well.

    Melanie – Now that Dan is all set up with his iPad, it needs to get registered to your Amazon account where your Kindle is also registered. That will allow you both to read any of the books that were purchase on that account.

  10. Mollypop
    11:50 am on January 4th, 2011

    Melanie – Mom did this a long time ago and she doesn’t quite remember how, but she’s going to test it out later by setting up her iPod.

    So to start, on the iPad you go to apps and download the free Amazon Kindle app. It will probably ask for the email of your Amazon account. If so, that’s all you do.

    You can check that it registered the iPad by going to Amazon, Your Account, Digital Content, Manage Your Kindle. It will show your list of books and devices.

    I’ll let you know how it goes later when Mom does the iPod.

    Melanie, In Native American societies, the spirit guides usually take the form of different animals. A totem is your spirit guide, which empowers and protects you. It can be used to help you heal and grow. Of course the Native Americans practiced a nature-based religion, rather than a Christian religion, but every religion has Spirit Beings of one form or another.

    Many religions have over laping beliefs, so maybe they can be blended, no matter what your main religion happens to be. We like to think that there is room for animal totems in our current world.

  12. Melanie
    12:21 pm on January 4th, 2011

    MollyPop: Tried, didn’t figure it out. Will have to try again later.

    Barb & MagPie: What does the Raven stand for? I know of the trickster, but some say knowledge. I think.

    Getting ready to go see Dan. Will take awhile. Have to buy the keyboard, set it up and such.

    2:23 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Melanie, At work right now, so will have to look it up at home to give you more details, but some of the qualities are same as the crow, since they are related. Know it is smart, very verbal, good speaking skills, magical, and the Winter season and Winter Solstice are the more powerful times for someone with the Raven for a totem. Also, Raven helps you go into the darkness and emerge into the light with more energy. You are right, the Raven is also associated with intelligence.

    to chet the dog and the plunderers:
    Yes, I’m actually writing you. I have loved all the good wishes from you over the a past several months. They seem to be working. On Feb 18, I will be going home from rehab. Melanie will have recovered from her surgery on her knee Feb. 14 and we will be celebrating at home. This note is a learning process, my first on the ipad. I’ll write more regularly later. Raven.

    Totem!….What the heck is this hooey about?…snort!… My friend needs a real live person to help her get through this season of misery…grunt!…Exhausted and depressed, she just plunders on. This morning her and her mother went to the bank to settle some of grandmas’s accounts. Still more to do later once all the final bills are paid…sniff!…The nursing home lost grandma’s very expensive little pair of shoes that her mom bought for grandma as a Christmas present. So they had to stop there to get someone to find them or else!!….dammit!….Well, miracles do happen because they did find them. They fit my friends feet perfectly, because her and grandma have the exact same feet….sniff! ….Then it was grocery store time. With all the ice and slush it’s a nightmare doing anything around town…snort!….Glad I stayed home and slept in my warm soft bed…heh!

    Hey!….I’m hungry!…yeep!….yeep!

    Hi Dan. It’s very nice to have you posting.

    Melanie: All of us bought into THAT fairytale.

    Just got back from the doctor. I’m having more tests as a process of elimination–x-ray, blood work and something called a dimensional echo which I haven’t had done yet. If it’s anything like an MRI I won’t like it because I don’t like being in enclosed spaces.

    It is blowing and snowing here.

    Hi Raven Dan! Welcome to Chet’s Blog. This is Wolfie here, feeling grateful that I did not accidently turn you into an elf when I was blurring good health wishes into your toffee. That would have been SO embarrassing. (Blush)

    My son Cody was born 2 minutes ahead of Chad, also by C Section, and he has never let Chad live it down. Especially since he’s always been about an inch taller.

    I feel sorry for the younger twin.

    Moderation!…My comment of 3:07 is still being moderated….grump!…What the heck is up with that? I wonder if it will just vaporize eventually…snort!….Dumb blog bugs!

    Stover!… I sure hope they can find out what is wrong with your lungs…wheeze!…None of it sounds like fun at all…snuff!…What do you and Melanie mean by buying into the fairytale in THAT?…grunt!

    The word crafty comes to mind when thinking about crows and ravens.

    4:13 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Melanie/Dan – On the iPad go to apps, press on the magnifying glass to search, enter amazon kindle, and the the app will be listed. Press install. It will ask for your Amazon email and password, and you’re in.

    It’s so simple a Min-Pin could do it.

  23. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:19 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Crafty!…Does Dan do crafty stuff like my friend does?…snort!… I’d like to see some of his projects…heh!

  24. B.Stover
    4:25 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Rio: Sorry. Melanie and I were emphasizing not referring to SQ’s THAT. I put a rewrite of the Grimm’s fairytale “Cinderella” (written by Anne Sexton) on my blog this morning.

  25. Siber-H
    4:48 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Welcome Dan!!! All of us here will be celebrating with you guys.

    Mollypop, I notice you didn’t say it is so simple even a Husky could do it. I’m just teasing.

    Stover, I don’t think they could get mom to do an MRI. She doesn’t like enclosed spaces either.

    Melanie, Dan’s Raven Fetish must be from Zuni Pueblo here in NM.
    Zuni Pueblo is the most interesting Pueblo in this state. In one of Tony Hillerman’s books they go to Zuni Pueblo. Wookie would remember which book it is. There is no hope of my mom remembering.

    Dan. It is so great to have a real author join us as one of the plunderers here at Chet’s Blog. In fact, my dad is one of your biggest fans. In addition to having read the wonderful For Love of Puppies that Melanie made available, my dad has gotten both Second Chance and White Wings from Amazon and thought that Second Chance was a truly remarkable novel that he just adored. He hasn’t had a chance to read White Wings yet, but that is at the top of his “To Read” list. (He also knows about the on-line novel, Sightings, and plans on reading that after White Wings.) He will be so excited when I tell you that you have now officially joined us. I also got him an iPad as a Christmas present (with a little help from mom), so he is learning how to use it at the same time you are. This is really cool. Wookie

  27. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    5:01 pm on January 4th, 2011

    SiberH — I think it is Dance Hall of the Dead, which was the second Hillerman novel, and one that just featured Joe Leaphorn. Wookie

  28. Mollie (a black poodle)
    5:07 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Welcome Dan/Raven! I am so glad you are feeling OK. I bet you can hardly wait until Feb. 18. You will have the IPAD to keep you busy until then.

  29. Macy the Min-Pin
    5:18 pm on January 4th, 2011

    PoodleHead…oh no you dit nt!!! I have always heard that poodle hair is poufy to cover up the fact that their craniums (and hence their brains)are so small.

    Back to the psycho/socio paths..sociopaths are generally easier to detect, as they do not have any regard for trying to cover up their ways. Psychopaths can go undetected for years due to their ability to blend in to different situations.

    To all who need MRIs, from mom..the trick is to close your eyes before you go in and convince yourself that the open sky is before you. Also, some machines have a lighted panel in front of your face that makes it look like you are looking through a window (on a REALLY cloudy day). Also, listening to music takes your mind off the whole process a little.

  30. B.Stover
    5:31 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Macy: Thank you. I looked it up. It’s not an MRI. It’s a type of ultra sound of the heart.

    6:02 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Bee, Echo is short for echocardiogram, right?

  32. Melanie
    6:27 pm on January 4th, 2011

    B.Stover: Sorry to hear about the tests. May they all turn out great and you just need to go to FL where there is warmth.

    Dan loves the wireless keyboard that now works with his iPad. His fingers work with that better than the on the screen.

    Both of us were zonked when he was writing on the blog. It’s JANUARY 14th for me and JANUARY 18th for him.

    He had done PT, then OT and just before I got there they had him climbing stairs!

    6:50 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Melanie!…don’t you dare disparage my pal Dan!…snort!… We all knew it was Jan. and not the other month! It sounds like he is doing very well in PT. What’s OT btw?….grunt!

    Staff!…My friend says she has put more stuff on the basket O’ flowers and wonders if you would like to critique it again for her…snort!…She says it might need more stuff, but she can add but not take away once it’s glued down…sniff!.

    Well, Put it up here then you little pugster. I bet that the vase isn’t near as boxy with the stems dropping down. Here is hoping she curved it out so it is partly on the vase and partly out of the ‘box’

    Welcome to the blog Raven.
    We have been waiting for that slacker Melanie to get you all hooked up. Thankfully now you will be able to blog for her when she is ‘in hospital’. Or ‘out’ of it at home.

    They love to give ultrasounds to kidney patients.
    All I can say is take some wet wipes and your own towel. They smear that goo on your body and then give you a few paper towels as if that would do the job of cleaning up the pints of goo all over you.
    And it is sticky!

    Welcome Dan! My mom was excited but kinda nervous about starting her new job, so she decided to take your book, For the Love of Puppies with her to work. She spent her lunch hour for the first two weeks with you and Zoe and Melanie and the newfs. She said she felt like she had a friend with her, even tho she was meeting a whole bunch of new people at the busy place. So glad to have you joining us plunderers.

  41. Barb & Maggie
    7:33 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Rio, maybe you were being moderated because you called totems hooey. We here on the blog are supposed to be open minded towards other policical/religious/cultural ideas. Just because you don’t want a totem, doesn’t mean someone else might find the idea worth thinking about. I think the idea of animals as Spirit Guides is an interesting concept. Maybe Dawson’s moose was her totem for awhile.

  42. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:37 pm on January 4th, 2011

    MagPie!… I don’t know if you’ve met me yet or not, but I am not an open-minded Pug…grunt!…Hooey! (if this is moderated then you were right!…heh!)

  43. Melanie
    7:40 pm on January 4th, 2011

    This brings up the thought that MAYBE Riö is a totem . . .

    Faithfulness and Protection

    The Dog is a symbol of the small becoming the great.
    People with this totem have great spirit
    and a great ability to love.
    It takes a lot to break a dog spirit.

    People with a Dog totem are usually helping others or serving humanity in some way.
    Dog medicine embodies the loving gentleness of best friend and the fierce energy of protector.
    You will have a deep understanding and compassion of human shortcomings.

    Study the quality of the breed of dog that has entered your life:
    is it a hunter, a protector, a companion, playful?
    Each of these qualities will give you insight into the qualities needed for your own life.

    A Dog totem is a great spirit booster.

    This Kat thinks y’all have dog totems. Your dogs are totems, like Siber-H said.

    No moose is a totem for me. My totem would be turtle or raven.
    We have many, many ravens here, especially in the winter. In the summer they prefer the bush, but in winter they move into town where the scavenging is more lucrative. We feed them occasionally to enjoy the show of 20 or so ravens interacting or if the weather gets very cold. We used dried bread drizzled with bacon grease.

  47. Barb & Maggie
    8:01 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Maybe Rio is really a fetish instead of a totem. He could be carried around in someone’s pocket, or hung around the neck. Then he would be rubbed to create peace, tranquility or power as needed. I think a Pug Fetish would be a good thing.

  48. dawson
    8:03 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Bluecat: That makes perfect sense to me…and that would mean Rio is a totem…

    B&M: Yes that is what the test is.

    Bluecat and/or B&M: How does one know what one’s totem is?

    The Riö . . .

    (Commercial style)

    Have a pain in the neck that just won’t go away?
    Or perhaps a small pest or problem that nags at you all day?
    Maybe you are plagued with the “Pain in the Butt?

    If you have these troubles, The Riö is the thing for you!
    Just rub it on the head and that pain in the neck will disappear.
    Small pests will run when you show them The Riö.
    Pains in the Butt will magically vanish when you rub The Riö’s tummy.

    Just $19.95 (curly tail not included)

    The information in this ad was not been approved by the FDA or the FFC or FBI.
    Also The Riö may not leave the yard.

  56. Barb & Maggie
    8:32 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Melanie, Love your commercial. I think we could sell a bazillion of those little Rios.

  57. Melanie
    8:38 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Thanks Barb & MagPie,

    Umm, I’ve never had tests that B. Stover is going to have. Are the whips standard issue?

  58. LizF
    8:39 pm on January 4th, 2011

    SH is right, that is lovely what you posted, Bluecat.

    Macy sorry i didn’t wish your mum happy birthday yesterday! I had a brain freeze I guess. I hope she and you enjoyed the day.

    B – wet whips, woohoo!

  59. Staff
    8:39 pm on January 4th, 2011

    I want some wet whips too. I was laughing at it also.

    I think I could use a little Rio. I think he might have a little trouble with head or tummy hair if we all rubbed him as much as I think we might. Of course if we used wet whips then it might be easier on his fur.


  60. Mollie (a black poodle)
    8:39 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Barb&Maggie: I think I read somewhere (maybe in a Hillerman or Thurlo book)that you should have a dream and whatever animal comes up in your dream is your Totem. Maybe as Bluecat suggested we all have a dog as our totem. Interesting ideas.

  61. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:40 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Molly!…Besides misspelling “wipe”, I think she misspelled ‘towel’…snort!

    Melanie!…heh!snort!heh!…Do I get a cut on the profits?…snort!…heh!

  62. Siber-H
    8:55 pm on January 4th, 2011

    I’m laughing at both Melanie’s commercial and Stover’s typos. You guys, I’d bet a hundred bucks that Stover didn’t misspell those words, they are typos. Now, with me, you never know. I sometimes don’t know myself.

  63. Barb & Maggie
    9:00 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Dawson, A turtle would actually be a good totem for you. The turtle is associated with the power of female energies. A turtle is the symbol of the primal mother or Mother Earth. It is associated with longevity – long life and groundedness.

    Bee, From what little I know about a totem, you do not choose it, rather it chooses you. You can have different totems at different times in your life . As Mollie said, it can come to you in a dream. You can also observe and see if a certain animal is suddenly more prevelent in your life, then study and see what it is trying to teach you. You can have more than one totem at a time. Each can bring you different things.

    Bluecat, what else?

    That’s one of the things I love about this blog. It takes us our of our mundane daily routine, and make us think about things in other dimensions.

  64. Barb & Maggie
    9:04 pm on January 4th, 2011

    Another thing I like about this blog is that it makes me laugh. Can anyone picture Bee using a wet whip? Maybe on her students when she tells them they are SOL.

  65. Melanie
    9:06 pm on January 4th, 2011

    (Melanie taking a bow)
    Thank you, thank you very much . . .

    The Riö would bring profits to us all! Split evenly between the Plunderers and, of course, Chet.

    I am going to dream, hopefully of my animal totem and NOT what I dreamed last night which had my computer hacked and destroyed.

    Melanie has left the building . . .

    I think wet whips would be more effective than wet wipes.

    B&M: Thank you for that explanation.

    Rio, We watched some of it too–one guy weighs 507, and he already lost a ton before he came on there. I think they said he was 648 last year. Holy moly!

    Ok, only goats in my book are mountain goats, not domestic, but here is a little bit: Cycle of Power, Late Fall, early Winter. If a goat has shown up in your life, you may need to stretch towards new heights. It can help you to trust in your ability to land on your own 2 feet(or 4). You may want to initiate new moves. It can help you stay focused and protect you from severe conditions. It is not unusual for a mountain goat to show up as a temporary totem when conditions become difficult and we fear slipping back. Its energies help us to regain balance, perspective and to continue the climb. It will soon be time to begin new climbs and new endevors. (From Animal Speak, The Spiritual & Magical Powers of Creatures Great and Small, from B & N). That’s all, folks!

    Mayhem!…Tonight for the first time in ages we are watching prime time TV…snort!…So we have to endure the commercials. There is one that is absolutely brilliant. An insurance company has a character called, “Mayhem” and he demonstrates why one should have car insurance. It’s very good….grunt!….He looks like Mayhem would look like…heh!

    MagPie!…Are you making all that nonsense up about goats?…cough!…I thought all they did was eat garbage and steal mail…grunt!

    Rio, I told you that information was about Mountain Goats, not marauding, mail eating goats. Those would be an entirely differnt totem, for sure.

    We have seen that Mayhem guy – there are several senarios, and they are all good.

    We are going to go read a bit of Wailing Wind, and then off to bed. Good night!

    I think Mountain Goats are alright fellows. There is a sub- species of goat out there that causes all the mayhem.

    Good Night Everyone!

    SiberH!….I think you meant to say “subversive” species of goats, breed entirely for the purpose of marauding and mail swiping…grunt!…It might be in the Plunderers best interest to find and infiltrate their community…sniff!…It would be smelly, dirty work, but I think some of you might be up to the task…wheeze!…To bad there are no horses who like to post on this here blog. That would be a perfect undercover agent for this insidious task…gruffle!

    Goodnight!…From Headquarters Central…heh!…All the squirrels are finally back at work ridding the good state of Rhode Island of bed bugs…sniff!…There was a huge outbreak after The Hill Billy gang played a birthday gig at some huge mansion on the ocean front…sniff!..Yawn!…Night all!
