Now: Friend of the Month


February 29th, 2012 Posted 8:46 am

“I jumped the gun yesterday,” Admin says.

“No harm done,” says Spence. “It’s like the Spanish Inquisition – who expects a leap day? But now we can safely say this is the last day to upload a picture to the Friends of Chet gallery in order to be eligible for March Friend of the Month.”

“Chosen by the random number generator, which should be back from the shop momentarily.”

“Winner is displayed over in the special place on the right for the entire month – where George is now – and winner’s human companion gets a signed copy of The Dog Who Knew Too Much.”

“How do you think most people deal with the leap day thing?” Spence says. “Treat it as a normal work day or as a gift of freedom?”

“Wasn’t there a movie about  a couple who met only on leap days?” Admin says.

“Last day of the month,” Admin says. “Time to get your Friends of Chet photos uploaded so you’ll be – “

“Um,” says Spence, raising his hand.

“Admin?” Spence says. “Check the calendar.”

Admin checks the calendar. “To quote Emily Litella,” he says: “Never mind.”

“How about a sneak peek at A Fistful of Collars?” Spence says.

“Too soon,” says Admin.

“In that case, maybe we shouldn’t mention it at all.”

“Then I wouldn’t be me,” says Admin.

“We’re in Orlando next weekend?” Admin says.

“Sleuthfest, Friday and Saturday,” Spence says. “We’re both on panels, three in all, I think. It takes place at the Royal Plaza Hotel, which I believe is in Walt Disney World.”



“I was just thinking about Donald Duck versus Daffy Duck, the whole Disney/Warner Brothers discussion.”

“You met Chuck Jones at some point?”

“Had drinks with him on several occasions,” Admin says. “Once he drew me Bugs Bunny with a codfish. A codfish codpiece, actually.”

“We’ve veered off-topic.”

“Call it mental off-roading.”

Welcome Hezzie.
