Yum Yum Saturday

Greetings friends and fans! This is The Daily Bone and I'm your doggie reporter 
Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

You have probably noticed I haven't posted a Saturday Yum Yum report recently. My esteemed and late associate Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel would not be very happy about this. So here's my report!

Ghostwriter's good friend and coworker Gigi, who is from the Philippines, made some coconut sticky rice rolled in banana leaves. At first I didn't know what they were.

But when ghostwriter unrolled them … Wow! They smelled amazing! I only got a tiny pinch to taste because ghostwriter and Dad ate them all up. They said it was just the right chewy texture, and the coconut taste was subtle. The banana leaf gave it a hint of green tea flavor.

Moving on, here are some more traditional dinners in our house. We're gradually changing over to our winter menu as the days get cooler. 

Spaghetti with grilled sausage, and steamed vegetables. 

Rotisserie  chicken from Wegmans, bread and butter, and fresh green beans.

Grilled steak, asparagus, and wild rice.

I found a few funnies about food too. 

Mother Goose and Grim

Red and Rover

I think Joey dog would have approved of this report!

And Now For Something Totally Different

Hello everybody. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

We checked back to see what was happening exactly two years ago on this day. Surprisingly, it was almost the same as what ghostwriter did yesterday! Worked a double overnight shift! (She needs to stop doing those!) So without further ado, here it is! 


This is The Unofficial Daily Bone and you know who I am by now! OK. Ghostwriter is now brain dead, flat-lining, kaput, zonked, and zombified. She had to cover that midnight shift at work, and hasn't slept since Saturday night. So here's our chance to slip something totally different into our doggie blog.

First up, in the spirit of Halloween and "The Bone" we pick every day, here's a funny joke: 

For you science geeks out there, here's a recent, and spooky photo of the Sun: 

For our doggie friends who like to dig: 

Maybe that's why this thing was parked in our driveway last summer …

Here are Dad and Joey dog being silly:

Surprise! It's not a spider! 

Wow! Look at the new National Geographic Magazine cover! 

And finally, a video that has nothing to do with doggies and everything to do with zombies. 

Don't worry ghostwriter. I wrote The Daily Bone for you this evening. You just go to bed and get some sleep.

Getting back to October 20, 2016, I have a few more unauthorized items I'd like to show you. 

Our Joanna human defrosted her freezer and found a frozen head in there! 

Wooooo! Scary! 

And … here is what Dad posted on FB about ghostwriter:

This was my wife after working a double eve/nite shift! I laid low!

Oh, oh! Dad's in trouble now!

Now for my final item, here is another hint of where ghostwriter went to in Chicago:

Go To Sleep Already!

Hello. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your concerned doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

Ghostwriter worked a double overnight shift. She left the house at 2:30PM yesterday and didn't come home until 8AM today! Now she is a zombie. I think the humans are terrible sleepers! You might think that there isn't much to do on midnight shift at the nursing home. But all night long people are putting on their call lights, or climbing out of bed, or needing to go to the bathroom, or thinking it's time to get up. They should take lessons from us doggies and kitty cats. We can sleep any time, any where!  Here's a picture of Tibie cat asleep on top of his cat tree:


Well, there's not much going on around here today, needless to say. But outside, Autumn has finally arrived. The leaves on the trees are turning all kinds of colors, and are starting to fall down.

The moon has been out too. (Hi Princess!)

Late last night.

Early this morning.

During the day, the sky was brilliant blue. 

It was a really nice day and ghostwriter is still awake (36 hours and counting!) 

Go to sleep already! 

Oh, I almost forgot. Here's a hint of where ghostwriter went in Chicago last week:

Home At Last!

Hello. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your newly liberated doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

My humans went away for a few days. While they were away I had to stay at a doggie prison spa. I've never been to a place like that before. But I had my own room with my bed and my toys and a place to go out when I needed to and my spaniel water bowl and my yum yum dinner and treats. There were lots of other doggies there too, and we did lots of barking.

My humans went to Chicago for a convention. I will tell you more about that later this week. But I'll give you a hint: it involves a kind of squeaky toy that isn't a squeaky toy. That means I'm not allowed to play with it even though it looks like a squeaky toy to me! 

Ghostwriter said they flew on a jet. 

Above the clouds!

And the airport at Chicago is very big, and very, very busy! 

She said she saw jets from all over the world there: the UAE, Azerbaijan, Japan, Korea, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Qatar, to name a few. The hotel they stayed at was close to the airport, and she could look out the window all day and night and see jets coming down, sometimes every two or three minutes! 

Dad finally got himself a deep dish Chicago style pizza! Too bad he wasn't allowed to bring a piece home for me. 

Looks delicious!

And now we're all extremely tired!
