WHAT's Up with THIS????

BUTT Furst....    Something strange has been going on with Blogger...   We read blogs directly from our dashboard...    and SOME of Your Blogs are suddenly NOT showing up.   It started (FUR US) with noticing that Lily had not posted.. and when we CHECKED   she HAD butt they were not on our dashboard... and NOW we discovered that Goose's Post from Friday had not shown up fur us.         Of course if they don't SHOW we don't realize there really WAS a post...         SO furends...   if you have a post up... and we Don't comment.... it is NOT that we are ignoring you or being rude... it is beclaws we didn't receive it on our dashboard...  
     We did go in yesterday and delete some blogs that are no longer posting... THAT may help.   Since we Follow a LOT of Blogs...           We do NOT intend to switch to that Feedly or other types of reader...  IF we can avoid it...    we are not big on Change here on the hill.  Just sayin.

Our mom and dad say they have NEVER seen a wooly bear caterpillar in JANUARY before...   THIS is one Wild and WHACKY winter...    What was he doing out the other day... just AFTER the Polar Vortex DEEP FREEZE???  

AND WHY does he look so STRANGE??....  another Once in a lifetime thingy...
THESE furst two pictures are from back on October 2nd, 2013 .   The first pic has the guys head facing RIGHT...   See how BLACK that is... ???    No Brown until you get a ways back    Then the long brown and the SHORT Butt...   That is supposed to mean that we would have a HARD beginning to our winter season.... and this guy was RIGHT about that part.    We had 4 inches of Snow on November 12th..      

 Butt see THEN he pawdicted a not so bad WINTER... butt he surely has been WRONG about THAT... REMEMBER the Polar Vortex that even caused Frost Quakes???    
 WELL now..... CHECK this NEW GUY OUT.....     He is CRAZY...  he showed up on our deck Carpeting the other day...   when we actually had a WARM (45°F)  day... HE is facing to the RIGHT... and you can see his little black face... butt THEN... he has a BROWN STRIPE... and then a Small Black Jacket and a LONG Brown middle...    NEVER have seen a Wooly Bear with a JACKET on.      
Do you see the little white spots on him?    It was starting to Sprinkle.. and that is what they are... TINY drops of rain.   
    All we know is that it has gotten VERY cold again...and the weather blabbers are even saying that the Polar Vortex is gonna be coming back down AGAIN... just not QUITE as cold...   later this week.
    SO   We are gonna have some WINTER FUN with Cussin Francine and Little Ernestine.

PeeS...... be SURE to get all your thingys in to the Hosts for the DANCE....    MANY have DEAD LIONS and you don't want to be left out...  in the Cold...

Hmm, he are a strange looking little dude. I think I would try barkin' em. Course dat are what I try with most everything.

easyweimaraner said...

I always thought they fall in hibernation to turn into a butterfly in spring. Maybe that's the caterpillar of Alice in Wonderland? btw: is the caterpillar sitting on spaghettis in the first two pictures?

Molly The Wally said...

Oh no the weather blabbers are saying you are getting the vortex back. Yikes. Stay warm pals. Have a serene Sunday and get on some big easy today.
Best wishes Molly

Yikes to that creeepy crawler. It's COLD and snowing. It's in the news that we exceeded the amount of snow this year. You guys stay safe and Stay Warm. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Lovable Lily said...

We totally agree that Blogger is being a real Bugger! We can only post from Mommy's smart phone (which some days is not too smart!) Then trying to put a picture in the post from the phone is a royal pain in the you know where. Doesn't make any of us happy.

That little fuzzy furend of yours is tooooo cute! We too thought you picked him up and put him in a bowl of spaghetti. That would be some mighty good protein. We hope that he is able to stay warm in your cold weather. We had a frost this morning here in brr chilly Florida. Doesn't look like we'll be wearing our bikini's anytime soon.

Hugs,
Lily Belle & Muffin

We hate it when blogger does silly things like that. Funny caterpillar he seems mixed up! Lee and Phod

We have noticed lots of non blogger blogs (the word press ones) don't show up in the dashboard anymore and when if they do they show posted 10 minutes ago when they posted a day or two before. Have you tried Bloglovin - it is free and covers all the blogs.

That is one weird looking caterpillar but at least he has a wooly coat to keep him warm :)

Millie and Walter said...

One of our mom's Facebook friends posted a picture of a woolly caterpillar last week too. We had temps around 50 but we too have never seen one of those out this time or year. Nutty!

Bouncing Bertie said...

Wow, that was a very interesting post Frankie. What a fine wee guy that furry chappie is.
Toodle pip!

That was a strange looking caterpillar almost as strange as snakeapillar.

Mollie said...

We have those hairy bears here, we are finding caterpillars and it's too cold for them. Is he eating your spaghetti ? BOL xxooxxx

Mollie and Alfie

GOOSE said...

Thanks for letting us know about the blogger thingy. And thanks for checking in on us and letting us know. That caterpillar is cool. I think he has a jacket on because it is cold. hehhehhe. Have a beautiful Sunday.
Blessings,
Goose

Murphy said...

We have the same exact blog problem. But all of ours disappeared! Sometimes they come back after a day. We have been reading them from our own sidebar but we know a few of them do not show up there either. Mom is totally grossed out by caterpillars so I had to scroll past the photos really fast or she would gag. she's weird like that.

Your Pals,

Murphy & Stanley

Mitch and Molly said...

We found a wooly caterpillar the other day. He sneaked inside on some firewood that dad brought in and we found him crawling on the floor. He is one smart little guy to try to stay warm only our evil mom tossed him back outside into the cold!

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly

The Army of Four said...

Yeah, we're having the same issue with the blogger feed. Whatcha gonna do, right?

Madi and Mom said...

Wooly bully I loved that song from way back in the 60's. MOL

We aren't big on change down here in Dixie either. We have noticed some blogs only allow comments with funky sign in things now too. We cannot leave comments on them.
Hugs madi your bfff

Blogger issues
For the last few days I have not been able to add a new gadget to my page in particular the button for the QoH.
I get to the gadget page but cannot scroll down to where the picture icon is located. And also on some blogs when I tried to scroll down to leave a comment I cannot so I have to click on 'jump to comments' link at the top of the comment page. On yours I don't have that problem!! I was hoping it would go away but it still there.
Hugs Cecilia

Bocci said...

Thanks for reposting what the woolies' original prediction was-we had forgotten. Yep, we'll sure be looking forward to spring!

Bailey Be Good! said...

Nala doesn't love the cold, but I think I LIKE it! Teehee!

Thanks so much for always visiting me... it really means so much. :)

Woofs & huggies, <3

Jans Funny Farm said...

Hmmm, why do some of you have dead lions?

Amazing how things can disappear when you least expect it. Glad you caught on to what was happening to your friends' blog posts.

Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...

We were just thinking about that catepillar the other day.

Sagira said...

Sorry to hear your blog digest is messed up. Your caterpillar friend is cute.

scotsmad said...

Now, who's better at predicting...a groundhog or woolly bear? We'll have to see. That is a strange caterpillar for sure.

We've been getting two Lily posts at the same time..don't know what's up with blogger. We sometimes have problems commenting...FRUSTRATING!

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Dexter said...

I'm curious about the background for the first fuzzy. Is that noodles? But I digress. My momma has maxed out on winter already and with the polar cortex coming back, I fear she might be canceling walkies. That's the worst.

Kisses,
Dexter

P.S. We use Feedly and actually like it, but it took a bit of getting used to.

Taffy said...

I think the wooly must be very confused! Or, maybe he thought it was spring after that polar vortex. It sure was cold! I've been MIA and haven't read anything about the dance yet....I gotta go see what needs to be done.

Jazzi said...

That looks like a crazy little guy

Berts Blog said...

Well your fuzzy friend is just as confused about this weather as we are.
Hey, have you ever tried to eat one of those little critters.
I wonder how that would feel in my mouth......(not that I would ever eat one)

Ruby said...

That is one tasty lookin' dude!! Um, I mean, CUTE little dude!!
Blogger has been VERY temperamental lately!!! I gots an email from Google sayin' they are switchin' Dashboards. Maybe that has something to do with the squirrel snot in the bloggies...
Kisses,
Ruby ♥

Wallace Wright-Parkin said...

How bizarre guys!! Make sure you keep warm, ok?
Wally & Sammy

Sarge said...

Wow, those little guys are all messed up this time! Maybe they gave up weather forecasting and are switching over to fashion instead. BOL Gee, they should at least warn everyone so we don't figure our Winter from them. Butt, I could plan my wardrobe instead. BOL
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, Pol Comm

LetterstoAndrew said...

Dang those wooly bears! Maybe he is saying we will have snow, then a looooong break without snow and then more snow. Maybe he has been taking lessons from the ground hog who never seems to know what winter is doing!

And please for the love of dog, how do you know which end is it's face?

marley said...
