Meet Harvey!


December 1st, 2022 Posted 7:51 am

The random number generator speaks: “Harvey!” That makes Harvey December’s Friend of the Month over on the FB page. Harvey will be the profile pic for the entire month – as soon as IT shows up – and Harvey’s human companion gets a signed copy of Bark To The Future, the most recent Chet and Bernie novel. Next month this could be you – or anyone you share this post with. Just send a pic to the FB page. R#G does the rest!

First, an announcement. My appearance at 5 ET today at RJ Julia Booksellers in Middletown CT has been postponed due to this storm we’ve got coming through today. I feel bad about it but with the wind and rain forecast there’s really no choice. I will be at Yellow Umbrella Books in lovely Chatham Mass. this Saturday from 1-3 ET.
And now – Last day of the month, meaning last day of eligibility for anyone who wants to be Chet’s December Friend of the Month to post a pic on the FB page. Winner gets to be the profile pic (where Samwise is now) and the winner’s human companion gets a signed copy of the latest Chet and Bernie mystery – in this case Bark To The Future. Just send in a pic. The random number generator (below) does the rest! Do you know anyone who has a good candidate hanging out at home? Perhaps share this post with them.

The Holidays!

“But is it an appropriate treat for Chet?”
She reached into a pocket of her elf jacket and took out a Slim Jim. Sometimes there’s just too much all at once. At least for me. Appropriate was what, again? Elves didn’t know what Slim Jims were? And those were just for starters.

Mrs. Plansky turned to Jeanine. “Paying for what?”

“The TV in the lounge,” Jeanine said, “but I don’t know where he got the idea there’d be a charge. No one would have told him that. It’s covered by our insurance.”

“He broke the TV?”

Jeanine nodded. “With a beer bottle.”

“He threw it that hard?”

Jeanine shook her head. “He wheeled right up to the screen and used the bottle like a club. Have you met Mr. Blucher?”

“I don’t think so.”

“He’s new. That’s who the argument was with. Naturally a staff member was on scene, serving refreshments and such, but it all happened very quick.”

“Dad’s ninety-eight. How could it have been quick?”
