Here is the place for comments. If you send me something you want
printed, I'll print it here.
Amy Hunter: Uncle Rich needs MORE Dockers??!!
Betty Hunter: What about A1? Anonymous
Rich Judge: Please add jeans to my list so Amy will quit picking on me.
Al Harvey: A-1 is in hiding. He got caught throwing rocks at neighbor cats. Pat does not cook moth ball candies. She eats them. The thermometer is for the occasion when I am inspired to cook a roast.
Joan Harvey: Tippy and Sidney certainly enjoyed the pet list and want to know if they get to go out shopping again this year.
Duke Schnolis: Bogart the ever playful is glad to join the pet exchange.
Katy Hunter: Aunt Pat, did you really think we didnt know John Wayne was in The Quiet Man?
Bogart Schnolis: I gratefully accept the fact that I'm the cutest dog ever. (translated by Duke)
Duke Schnolis: Hey, do we have a price limit on the pet exchange? Bogart wants to know how much of his allowance he'll have to forfeit for Madison.
Duke Schnolis: Betty suggested $5 for the dog exchange. Any thoughts?
Amy Hunter: Lauren...has informed me that Jazmine's name is spelled incorrectly on the list. I think the names came from Uncle Rich, who first lost the names and then spelled his own dog's name wrong. I don't think he should be in charge of the grab bags (pets or not) from now on.
Buzz Hunter: Where can one purchase a toy or rawhide that is shaped and flavored like an ear of corn? I know that is Duchess's preference, but I am having a hard time finding anything of that nature at the finer pet stores here in town. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You and Happy Holidays, Buzz
Marc Schnolis: It's nice tos ee so many of my family members getting ready to give me business as soon as I'm out of here.
Rich Judge: I asked my dog how to spell her name, and she said S-M-0-K-E-Y then she went out and barked at an airplane.
Rich Judge: To Amy: I have asked for more jeans and promise to never again mention dockers.
Joan Harvey: I am so glad to see that we again have a pet exchange. Sidney is so excited!!!! Sid went right out and selected Bogart's gift.... and caused quite a stir in the store. Tippy is such a snob, she has her own personal shopper. But she will be happy to participate in the exchange.
Katy Hunter: Look who's whose become a fairweather Cubs fan since he's married a young lady named Lynn from the north side.
Duke Schnolis: Sorry for the shutdown, gang. I don't know why that happened, but thanks for all of the email!
Duke Schnolis: I've been out sick for the past three or four days, so I apologize for any delays in the updates. I'll get right on it tomorrow morning when I get into to work.
Betty Hunter (a suggestion): Could the people Email the parents/spouses/significant others the information on what has been purchased so we can buy from what's left on the list?
Lynn Schnolis: In his absence, I will speak for Mike(who is unable to comment at the moment) that he still shows preference for the White Sox, despite my influence.
Duchess Schnolis: Is Schultz II a cat or a dog? The only small, soft toys with a bell in them that I can find are for cats!
Rich Judge: Katy, please clarify exactly where the Bannan Republic is. Do we need a passport to get there just to buy cologne? Sounds like a central African country to me.
Schultzie Harvey II: I wish to report that i am a dog not an .....ugh.....cat. i would love a bag of snausages. i am only allowed one a day as there are some humans here that say that i have a gas problem if i eat too many of them. I heard that uncle rich has the same problem.
Anonymous: Guess who has actually purchased a pair of dockers to give to their name? Uncle Rich, the ball is now in your court.
Tom Judge: Harriet (Hairy-It) wonders about all those canines on the list and only one feline to break the monotony. Can't some one at least have goldfish or a parakeet?
Duke Schnolis: I wanted to put "Lazy"--my pet rock--on there, but he was voted down. I mentioned it was discrimination against non-living pets, but he didn't object when I told him so I dropped the issue.
Amy Hunter: The Hunter's have their aluminum pole up for the Holidays, and are busy practicing for the feats of strength. I think most of us have aired our grievances on this web page. Happy Festivus!!
Anonymous: I think the Hunter's should not let Amy on the computer when she has been up all night working and comes home in a silly mood.
Gloria Judge: Don't Kevin and John want anything for Christmas? Or have they been bad? Also, it was another Judge Family moment at Betty's house on Sunday.....the guys were watching "Christmas Vacation" laughing at the sames lines every year, Katy was calling Carol a "cookie rookie" and Amy was just laughing at anything (She's been working too hard).
Joan Harvey: I am under the impression that Harriet is a cat. (I apologize if I am wrong). I wanted to let you know that Tippy is a cat. She is a snotty one at that. There are also other animals that live in this house. We also have Huckle the hamster and Joey the mouse.
Well, here it is---the newly established Pet Exchange. The pet listed on the left will be giving a gift to the pet listed on the right. Questions? Send 'em my way.
