I forgot those commercials, Brian/David!

I wonder how much that little old lady got paid for doing them.

Story with Mila during our dinner party last night.

We had her in the spare bedroom at first while the guests were here...they are also dobe lovers - they lost their rescue just a little time after we lost Molly in March....

Back to the story - I heard a noise so I went to check on her and she wasn't in the room. I went to the master bedroom, bath, closet not there either. I started to worry. I went back to the first bedroom(computer/piano room actually) and looked again. I did not see her. Worry escalated. I looked harder. She was under my digital piano. I called her and she wouldn't come. I got on the floor and called she slowly came out. I gave her lots of petting and calm words.

The noise was the dad-blasted smoke detector battery alarm was chirping. She was very afraid of that. I took her outside and it was dark-ish by then and she wouldn't leave my side very far. Went back inside and she greeted the guests. She did very well with them! And they invited her to their house for the next dinner

This morning as I was in here looking at DT....she came to the door and I could tell she was not too happy. I got back to the floor and she came slowly in. I went and got treats and let her eat them in here. I think she is ok now but will have to watch out for the darn smoke detectors. Our other dobes did not like them either when they chirped.

Chicken piccata is one of those dishes I love and somehow it never occurs to me to make it.

(I confess that I tend to make lots of soups, stews and that sort of thing because--I don't have to cook anything for several days that way--just heat up whatever is still in the refrigerator, in the microwave and lo and behold--dinner, or lunch and occasionally breakfast.)

RAIN--this is the PNW--the rain (since climate presently is acting as if it is November not October is endless)--it was raining last night when I let the dogs out after dinner. Boy they didn't want to go out in the yard--huddled under the little canopy over the back door--I put on a rain jacket and made them go out with--what a bunch of whiney, pouty Dobermans.

Let them out again at 10:00pm when the elderly bitch Jersey (and the other elderly bitch--me) get some meds--it was raining--the only one who really wanted to go out was Clark who was hoping for another late night escape into the dark, wet, cold yard. Ridiculous cat.

Got up at 6:00am--let the dogs out (guess what) it was raining--and even though there is a break in the cloud cover right no--it's raining. Everything over 5,500 feet is getting snow--Timberline got 18 inches last night and they are predicting about that much more today.

Just looked in the bedroom--Clark has taken over Toad's personal big dog bed--the cats, if they have a chance really like to rush and take over any dog bed that a dog has occupied long enough to warm up.

That's entirely enough of the PNW weather and cat report--I'll go balance my check book now (ugh!).

ABTLH

PS Glad you got home safely Lady Di. And Kenny--I think no news is probably good news when it comes to puppies.

How can you and Scott possibly be alive after an all night drive?



Oh! I forgot! You didn't snore on the way home.

I can't travel that way.

I exclaim "I am done! Find a motel, I need a beer and some TV!"

I hate traveling. I have fun once I get there but am all grumpy on the trip to and from.

Guess I really am getting old. When I was younger and invincible, I didn't mind traveling, but at my own pace. Too many schedules to adhere to these days.

I am with Mila! I hate technology!

I lost Google Chrome this morning and can't get it back.

Geek Squad here I come!

I even managed to screw up trying to clean the vacuum filters. I can't get the pieces back together. Mister is going to be irritated with me when he gets home from his side job and I ask him to fix it. I was on a mission, too! My intention was to vacuum and steam clean the hell out of the carpet today!

Fail!

Yep! That's pretty much how I cook and then I get scolded by The Mister.

I am supposed to cut my recipes in half, supposedly. Not sure how that can happen. For example, I use 4 different kinds of beans in my chili. Am I supposed to store half cans of beans somewhere?

He doesn't eat leftovers very well. Yes I could freeze everything, but it never tastes as good after freezing.

I think you're doing pretty good if you get around to reheating your leftovers instead of just eating them cold straight out of the fridge. But if you're reheating the meal, it still counts as cooking.

Katana was typically a very polite bed sleeper...she did her obligatory circle down toward the foot of the bed and then collapsed straight down onto her feet and legs. Caesar used to do the circle (between us, of course) and then flop down on his side with his feet in the dip he had made and his body on top of one of us. Then he'd roll over on his back in the middle of it all and push his feet out in both directions.

To the point of this story--one night we woke up to Katana trampling on our pillows and faces, trying to shove herself between the tops of our heads and the bed's headboard.

Wha.....Oh, the smoke alarm is chirping.

A little quiz:
How many of you actually check the smoke alarm's battery regularly and replace it every year vs how many of you simply wait until it does its low battery alert. Fess up...

Obviously I let them chirp!!! Darn things are on non-battery power as well! While we do lose power occasionally it isn't that often...."famous last words - odds are wouldn't have a fire with no electricity" but then again someone may try to build a fire if power is down too long or candles probably more likely...

Luckily DB, we don't get the amount of rain you do, but amazingly we have the same "whiney, pouty Dobermans" as you do!

Whiney, Pouty Dobermans (and mutt) in Rain

I'm fessing up!

What is a smoke alarm?

I will consider checking and changing batteries when we start using the wood burning stove. Which we haven't used since I bought the place.

Guilty as charged.

Nice story, Moe, we had similar guests on two occasions just recently, 9 relatives stayed overnight and 2 relatives just stayed 5 days. Eva and Spock are getting to really love guests as there are many more hands to give them scratching and attention and they show off too...

Spock loves to sit on couch with guests, in this case my wife's nephew, where he started out just sitting next to Ben like this...

Ben Sitting on "Spock's Sofa"




...but ended up in full belly up position after a while (pic from earlier occasion)


...Spock in Full "Belly Up" Position




My wife's sister-inlaw is terrified of dogs, especially the Dobes, but last time made the sleepover here and watched the Dobes show off for everyone in backyard- through the window!
She got to see even a 3 y/o toddler having fun petting and interacting with Spock, Eva and Lanah. We just told his mom to not have little boy run in backyard or he might getting knocked over by over exhuberant Dobes...

He doesn't eat leftovers very well. Yes I could freeze everything, but it never tastes as good after freezing.

Holy cow Denny! You use canned beans in your chili? I don't think I'd even know how to make chili with canned beans. Since I've been making chili in a Crock Pot for the last um (let's see--since 1967--how many years is that) and before that it was stove top and I didn't make it often because you had to keep stirring it so it didn't burn everything on the bottom.

Not eating leftovers is a guy thing--but I noticed years ago that all of the guys I knew that claimed to hate leftovers generally had their head in my refrigerator after they'd been in the house for more than 12 minutes looking so see if there were any unclaimed leftovers there.

I did have a couple of roommates who had worked in restaurants when they were going to school and didn't know how to cook anything in small quantities so they produced meals and lots of leftovers. That was fine with me and with one of them--he liked his own leftovers enough to leave threatening notes on them in the fridge--"MY LEFTOVER WHATER DO NOT TOUCH OR YOU WILL DIE!"

It's still raining--Toad went and looked out the window--leaving a warm spot in the dog bed--Leon promptly climbed into is causing a lot more whining and pouting on the part of Toad--who then tried to arrange his large self around Leon--he finally stepped on Leon and made him squawk--that's enough for me--this room is cold--I'm going back to bed for a nap--Leon can come with me--he's allowed on the bed.

Toad can have his own bed back.

Later ya'll...
