Post Mortem


April 30th, 2011 Posted 10:01 am

“How did the talk go?” says Spence.

“No one threw anything,” Admin says.

“Always a good sign.”

It was? Not to me. I almost always like when people throw things. Because then I go get them! Dudes throwing knives? That’s a little different. Once there was this perp, name escaping me at the moment, who had a real pointy nose that reminded me of a knife and he turned out to be good with knives, kind of an interesting something or other. But Bernie can be quick, and he shifted his head just in time, the knife sticking deep into the wall of the shed. After that the pointy-nose dude – what’s that expression? – got what was coming to him. That’s how we do things here at the Little Detective Agency.

From Admin: Here’s Ian once more, Friend of the Month. Ian’s human associate can get in touch with Spence (spence.quinn@gmail) and the prize – a signed copy of To Fetch A Thief – will be winging its way.

Welcome Tigro (who has good taste in literature), Becca, Daisy.

Why no post? Too busy! Running around in circles is a kind of busy. Here’s Ian again, Friend of the Month. Soon he’ll be in a special place over to the side for the whole month. As soon as Ian’s human companion emails Spence ( with a mailing address, a signed copy of To Fetch A Thief will be on the way.

Today at 2, Dennis Public Library, Dennis MA: Spence and Admin, rare joint appearance.

Welcome Rufus, Melody, Leia, Billy.

Here is Ian! The first Friend of the Month at! Selected by a random number generator, whatever that might be. Bernie explained it all to Charlie last night. It went on and on. Anyway, congratulations, Ian! Whoever sent in Ian’s photo, please email Spence a mailing address so he can get you your prize – a signed copy of To Fetch A Thief ( Also, Ian’s picture will be on display in a special place over on the right for the month of May.

Spence says not to forget that there are two ways to win because there’s also a Friend of the Month over at my FB page. This month’s FB winner will be announced today. Spence also says that if you’ve already sent in a photo at either place you’re automatically eligible for future months. If you’re not here or on the FB page already, just send in a picture, as the story-loving dude and Marlon and Bailey did today (welcome!).

Note from Admin to Melanie: will be in touch re Snowhook patch soon. (And many thanks)


Science Marches On


April 27th, 2011 Posted 8:53 am

“Picking the Friend of the Month today?” says Admin.

“As soon as we eradicate these bugs,” says Spence. Bugs? I don’t see any, don’t hear them either, and bugs can be pretty noisy, a fact humans may be missing.

“How are you going to do it?” Admin says

“Random number generator,” Spence says.

“Can’t beat science.”

“You say that in a scary way, like it beats us.”

Admin grins. Don’t see that every day.

Welcome Bond, James Bond.

Sorry about the bug problems. Should be fixed soon.
