“Sometimes,” Bernie said, lowering his voice, “you just get a feeling.” He was so right! In fact, I get feelings all the time! We understand each other so well, me and Bernie. For example, right now I had a feeling that maybe there was a little scrap of something or other under the enormous gleaming cooking range in Albie Rose’s kitchen. I went over there and started pawing. And almost right away felt something. A little more pawing, and out it skittered. But not an old Dorrito, or strip of bacon, or filet mignon – filet mignon! a treat I’ve only encountered once, and we can’t go back there again – or any of the other possibilities on my mind. What rolled out from under Albie’s range wasn’t even food.

But I knew what it was, on account of being a pro at my job. You see shell cartridges from time to time in this business.

“What you got there, big guy?” Bernie said. He came over, picked up the cartridge, gave it a look. “Twenty-two long,” he said. “Good work, Chet.”

A breeze started up behind me. That would be my tail.

    Mayhem has been taking place in Albie's kitchen. Let's see…what could have happened. How often would Albie actually be in his kitchen….assuming he has maids, a cook, and a dining room where he'd actually eat (probably with a wall of glass doors leading to the pool and cabana)? MMMMM. I don't know what a "twenty-two long" means other than it's a gun. No title today. More questions.

    You and Bernie have such good instincts Chet. What happens now?

    Rio: Regarding putting two and two together and Col. Bob: The problem as I see it is that Col. B may know nothing about Albie. He knows Foster asked for money and told Bernie to "Just do it." I think Col. Bob is a good guy, that he knew nothing about Astrid's problems–whatever they may be–until Ray talked to him, and that he now wants to help both A and R. We don't have enough details though.

    Everyone certainly had an exciting time last night with sports. Congrats to Chicago and sorry about the Rockies.

    Could that be a date? January 5th, 1946?

    I figure Chet just forgot to label the post, but really have no idea what it means.

    I suppose we must google it.

    Gun!… So a twenty-two caliber rifle may have been fired in Albie’s kitchen!… wow!…No blood, no bodies, I wonder what happened… grunt!… Is Albie running down the street in his Speedo trying to escape?….heh!

  6. B. Stover
    5:23 am on June 10th, 2010

    What would happen if you fired a rifle inside a kitchen?

    I think someone would notice Albie in his Speedo Rio. LOL

    5:40 am on June 10th, 2010

    Rio, Sorry about the Rockies. I hope your friend likes her new place.

    There are some baby Peregrine falcons on a roof top in downtown Chicago. They are going to band them and they are being named for Black Hawk players. One is being named for Antte Niomi, the goalie. Cool or what? Peregrines eat pigeons. I wonder if they taste like chickens!

    This is me after the game last night. Mom calls this look "Wild and Crazy Maggie"

    Interesting that it is a rifle cartridge instead of a handgun. Maybe someone was shooting at skunks like they do in my neighborhood (not my mom), but they use a twenty-two short. Even in the summertime, you can't hear the shot.

    woo-woo Cute picture, Maggie…great teeth.

  11. Siberian Husky
    6:23 am on June 10th, 2010

    wait a minute..there are hands guns that use a twenty-two long, so we can't assume that it was a rifle.

  12. Siberian Husky
    6:26 am on June 10th, 2010

    typo..that should be handguns not hands guns. My mother took me to the groomer yesterday, and I am still recovering from the trama and shock. This is not an April's Fools joke.

    Stover, I was going to go fire a 22 rifle in the kitchen to get you an answer to your question, but mom put a stop to it. Mom is on my "no fun" list right now.

  15. B. Stover
    6:43 am on June 10th, 2010

    Groomers and dentists…two of the painful necessities of life.

    Okay folks. What kind of gun do we have here…twenty-two long? Can you hear the shot with a .22 long/short handgun or rifle?

  16. Riö - The Evil
    6:44 am on June 10th, 2010

    Snicker!…We’ll just call you SiberHussy till you air-out!… heh!… Okay, I was thinking a 22 Rifle, but it could have been a handgun. That makes more sense actually because it would be a lot easier to conceal…snort!

  17. B. Stover
    6:45 am on June 10th, 2010

    SH: Please don't fire guns in the kitchen or elsewhere. (Now I'm on your "no fun" list too.)

  18. Debbie LM
    6:51 am on June 10th, 2010

    Great – I google it and come up with a website that will let me turn my "glock" into a 22 long rifle. A killing machine. Shudder. Chet stay alert! I'm scared of what nasties you might find with that type of weapon.

  19. Riö - The Evil

    Alice Johnson has her own post name now.

  21. B. Stover
    6:59 am on June 10th, 2010

    I think that Foster cares too much about his own well-being to risk taking any kind of shot at Albie.

    Finally!…Alice Johnson finally figured out how to get her name up there!…Woooo!

  23. B. Stover
    7:05 am on June 10th, 2010

    We have a shell cartridge of a .22 long but no blood. Where's the bullet? Perhaps Ray came to Albie's with a gun to try to find where Astrid is. Perhaps he needed the money from Col. B to buy the gun.

  24. Siberian Husky
    7:06 am on June 10th, 2010

    Stover, I'm sure the neighbors couldn't hear it whether it was a rifle or a handgun. I suspect it was a handgun.

    but, but, but, Stover, this is the Wild Wild West.

  25. Siberian Husky
    7:07 am on June 10th, 2010

    Stover, the bullet is in whoever got shot.

  26. B. Stover

    Good work Rio on the 1546.

  27. B. Stover
    7:08 am on June 10th, 2010

    But, SH, there's no blood.

  28. B. Stover
    7:11 am on June 10th, 2010

    SH: I don't care if it's the wild wild west. I would hope that we've gotten beyond the age of cowboys and shoot-outs. However, I'm probably wrong.

  29. Riö - The Evil
    7:12 am on June 10th, 2010

  33. B. Stover
    7:33 am on June 10th, 2010

    Okay, what's the difference between shell and cartridge? (So it's a rifle–cartridge–and not a gun–shell??)

    And Alice Johnson has an umlaut.

  34. Siberian Husky
    7:36 am on June 10th, 2010

    You can say that again, Rio

    A cartridge means that it is a round of ammunition that has never been fired.

  35. B. Stover
    7:48 am on June 10th, 2010

    Curiouser and curiouser. So, we don't know if it's a handgun or rifle, only that a unfired bullet (if that's the correct term) was found under the cooking range.

  36. Sam

    I think Alice Johnson doesn't want to be out-blinged by Rio. Besides, she is a very elegant Kat.

  41. Siberian Husky
    8:04 am on June 10th, 2010

    It could mean anything now…like someone was going out to the range to go target shooting, put cartridges in their pocket, and one fell out. Or, maybe someone was planning to shoot somone, and dropped a cartridge while loading their gun. Since this is a Chet and Bernie mystery, I'll go with my second guess.

  42. ÄbbietheKitty
    8:06 am on June 10th, 2010

    Or maybe someone was interrupted while trying to load a gun. Someone whose former enforcer has left him in the lurch.

    Someone who is missing from his home now.

  43. Riö - The Evil
    8:12 am on June 10th, 2010

    Siber-H – Why would your mother take you to the groomer's?

  52. Wookie of Chevy Chas
    11:26 am on June 10th, 2010

    SiberH — Deer poop works really good for that too, if you can find some. A little bit of my misspent youth coming back. Wookie

  53. Siberian Husky
    11:40 am on June 10th, 2010

    Molly, my mom reasons were: 1. I was a dirty dog 2. to get all the dead hair out of me (I am blowing my coat) so I would feel better and stay cooler. Mom says the groomer does a better job of all of this than she does. 3. Depending upon her mood, mom would rather pay someone to struggle with me than do it herself. I fought the brave fight. The groomer's husband had to help her. I don't bite, but I sure can kick when anyone tickles me. I only kicked the groomer a couple of times. I think I behaved very well.

  54. Siberian Husky
    11:42 am on June 10th, 2010

    Deer poop is great, Wookie! Much better than something like rabbit poop.

    My favorite line today?

    "A breeze started up behind me. That would be my tail." That always seems to happen when Chet does a great job.

    Been busy. Had to start supplemental feeding. Will probably continue through a couple of days. Takes a lot of time bottle feeding 12 pups.

    Here's a pic to the cyber-God parents. . . for some reason they like to be upside down. I have taken some cute ones of them nursing, but don't want to start Riö cringing again.

    Melanie – Now the pups can be named Red Lynn, Pink Lynn, Yellow Lynn, etc, which I'm sure you want to do. But what do you do for 12 colors?

  62. Siberian Husky
    12:35 pm on June 10th, 2010

    CUTE!!! I don't know how Melanie comes up with names for all of them, but I like the names she has given the ten adult Newfs.

    I have the same questions Rio does in his above post.

    1:04 pm on June 10th, 2010

    Melanie, They are very, very cute. And easy to handle (except for the supplemental feedings) at this age. Mom read a Nicholas Sparks book last year, wherein he had the vet. character tell the owner of a pregnant dog just to leave her alone and she would handle the birthing process all by herself. Then the woman character went out the next morning to check things out in the garage and found puppy poop, urine, etc all over the entire garage from the puppies, who had traveled all over the place at 8 hours old. Plus he said the foul smell almost knocked her out. Mom was so appalled over his lack of puppy research that she wrote to him. Mr. Sparks must not have appreciate her helpful comments because he never responded. Oh well!

  69. Riö - The Evil
    1:24 pm on June 10th, 2010

    Uh oh!… My friend came home earlier after packing up busy season in a bag, and we have been watching the game…snort!… Now she is in a really bad mood cuz they lost again to a team the Rockies should have wiped off the face of the field… crap!… What is wrong with our boys this summer???…shoot!

  70. Melanie
    1:33 pm on June 10th, 2010

    Barb and Magpie are right. The pups can squirm all over the whelping box right after they are born. We had to have two people travel back from the vets. One to drive and the other to make sure the pups didn't squirm out of the boxes.

    The pups eyes open at 14 days. I think their hearing starts at one week. Breeders consider the pups at three weeks old have a "second birth." They become what people consider pups to be, fun, playful (slow motion to begin with) and noticing people.

    If we run out of yarn, we use two colors together! What we need are little quilts for each pup to wear like a cape!

    Barb and Magpie, all of that in 8 hours??? Just how many puppies were there? They don't even poop for a while. Jeez.

  71. Barb & Maggie
    2:00 pm on June 10th, 2010

    Melanie, Barb wrote Mr. Sparks that no responsible vet would tell someone to levae their dog alone to have her litter. They would say to observe, help any pup in trouble, clear the membrane if necessary, call vet if mama was having trouble with delivery, etc. Then she explained that there should be some sort of whelping box for mom and puppies. And since the pups can't see or hear, they wouldn't be trotting all over the garage. In addition, since mama keeps everything cleaned up for several weeks, there is no "horrible stench that made her gag". Mr. Sparks has lived with several dogs, but guess he didn't know too much about newborn puppies. It was all so distracting that she had trouble concentrating on the story line.

  72. Barb & Maggie
    2:09 pm on June 10th, 2010

    Oh and one more thing. This pregnant dog, who was supposed to be the main character's best friend and constant companion was about ready to deliver, and the character didn't know she had gotten bred, or was pregnant! Wow how did that happen? Mr. A and Mr. Q do alot more research than that! That is why all their books are such a good read.

  75. Melanie
    2:36 pm on June 10th, 2010

    Snort! She didn't know when her dog was in HEAT? Lordy, Lordy, Lordy.

    I thought the vet had said the thing about leaving the dog in the garage in order for something in the plot to be proven wrong. Remind me NOT to read that book. I don't think I could get past that. . .

    How on earth someone could miss a dog being in heat????

  76. Barb & Maggie

  78. Melanie
    3:09 pm on June 10th, 2010

    Just had to look it up!

    • READ (noun)

    The noun READ has 1 sense:

    1. something that is read

    Familiarity information: READ used as a noun is very rare.

    Also:" A Good Read is one of BBC Radio 4's longest running programmes where two guests and the main presenter (Sue MacGregor or Kate Mosse) choose their favourite book."

Popcorn!..heh!

    3:17 pm on June 10th, 2010

    The dog in the book shouldn't have been having puppies in the first place. It would be a better world for dogs if, even in novels, dog owners would spay and neuter their pets.

    This statement, of course, does not apply to responsible breeders like Melanie.

    Mom is going through a really disgusted period about this subject right now because she has an acquaintance whose cat just had unplanned (careless) kittens and their 6 year old, 100lb dog, mixed breed, has never been neutered. The dog gets out from time to time.

    You can't fix stupid.

  83. Barb & Maggie
    3:27 pm on June 10th, 2010

    This character thought her neighbors's neutered Boxer was the father of the pups. Guess she never notice that he was missing the family jewels! And we know that "read" is normally a noun. Thanks for the backup, Melanie. But some words can be different parts of speech. There is one word, which shall go unmentioned,(but some of us might have used it at one time or another), which can be a noun, verb, adverb or adjective. That is really multi-purpose, dont'cha think?

  84. B. Stover
    3:28 pm on June 10th, 2010

    "The Cringe" is funny. Is the Sherlock Holmes movie good? I can get it On Demand but will have to pay for it.

    Melanie. I checked with my mom, the quilter extraordinaire, and she said she thought the quilt idea for each of the Newf puppies sounded terrific and she could definitely make a quilt for each of the pups; we would just need to know the colors you would like. She could certainly make some virtual ones for the shower, but she would also be willing to send you real ones, so that you could give one to each new owner when they pick up their Newf puppy. And of course, I would have to test each one before she sent them to you, just to make sure that they each have the Wookie seal of approval. Wookie (and Wookie's mom)

    I wonder what is up with Samantha Lynn? She seems to be trying to tease Miss Alice Johnson. Alice doesn't tease well. Watch out Sam. You are just supposed to do 'her' bidding quietly and without any fuss.

    I thought you were trained in on the last mission. Don't make me use the 'eyes' on you.

    Sherlock!… So far we are totally enjoying it, we love Robert Downey as Holmes, who would have thought?… snort!… He’s sort of an action Sherlock, but the movie has a great style and so far has not over-done the violence….grunt!…A guy who does busy season with my friend is very picky about movies and he is the one who raved about this movie… snicker!…Boy, does she like to give him a hard time….heh! … Some of the stories I hear, that poor guy!… ha!… I think she only picks on the people she really likes, and ignores the ones she doesn’t… hey!… Maybe that’s why I am always being picked on too!.. mmmmm

    Wookie, what a generous offer. You and your mom are making me cry. I think the virtual puppy quilts would be great. Otherwise it would be a great deal of work for your mom!

    I will tell Zoë of your offer and she will cry too. We will tell every puppy owner that their puppy is Wookie approved (also cyber-Godparents approved).

    Wookie!…. Wow! You really are a nice guy and a great Agent! …YEEP!GROWL!….aaaach, its lightning and thundering here Very loudly!….snort!… Anyway, could your mom make me a quilt too???… Just wondering…sniff!…No pressure… None at all.

    Rio, We are going to request Sherlock Holmes from Netflix, based on your recommendation. Thanks

    Barb&Maggie: No problem. It's just a pet peeve of mine, like a nail scratching a blackboard. I don't know why.

    I'm going to have to watch Sherlock Holmes I think. I've saw the previews several times and I really like Jude Law. Jeremy Brett is my favorite Sherlock.

    Good night all, puppies sleeping with full bellies. Need to get rest while I can.

    Wookie, thanks again!

    Stover!…Are you kidding?… snort!… WE LOVE JUDE LAW! … woooo!…Ever since someone saw him in “The Garden of Good and Evil”… wow!

    B. – Is the use of 'read' as a noun offputting to you?

    Actually, the word offputting is offputting to me.

    I don't like it either.

    Honest. My Mom keeps a supply of small quilts on hand and she and I think that the smell of their Mom Gracie on the little quilts would help them miss her less. Can we get an address for you on your website? Wookie

  101. Barb & Maggie
    5:24 pm on June 10th, 2010

    Wookie, you and your mom are too sweet.

    Rio and Bee, OK, we could have said "It could have been a good book" instead of a "good read". But what if we said "We are really late, we need to book". In other words, using book as a verb. Any nails on the chalkboard? We thought read as a noun was accepted in literary circles. We are feeling very offputting right now.

  102. Riö - The Evil
    5:25 pm on June 10th, 2010

    Wookie! … I would suggest you do not give out addresses and other personal info on this website OR on Melanies website…. Snort!… Now, there is one known email address, AbbieTheKitty has that maybe she can help you guys connect with each other.. grunt!…Remember, there are a lot of “Lurkers”… cough!…All I say is be very, very careful giving out personal info… wheeze!

    I totally agree with Rio, but there has to be a way.

    Wow!.. Sherlock Holmes just got better and better until it became one of our favorites!…snort!… Amazing how they re-created old-time London (digitally I am sure), but it looked very real!…gruff!…Well worth watching, it is kind of long, but I wanted it to go on forever!…heh!

  106. Barb & Maggie
    5:37 pm on June 10th, 2010

    Maybe we are feeling offput, I don't know. And we are going to move Sherlock Holmes up to # 1 on our Nexflix requests. Gawd, Rio, you should be in sales!

    MagPie!…”We are really late, we need to book” ..Wha?!… I’ve heard of “Book ‘em Danno”, but not ‘We need to book’….snort!…sorry!

  108. Riö - The Evil
    5:47 pm on June 10th, 2010

    OH OH!… Barb and MagPie! Please, after you watch Sherlock Holmes, please tell me what the last 3 words Sherlock says at the very end!… snort!.. We replayed and replayed, but we could not decipher what he said….crap!… So Please, Please, if you can understand the words, please tell me what he said… many thanks!… Wheeze!

    Maybe it's a midwest thang, Rio. We have to get bookin, we need to book. Means to get going, ya know. Not close to booking someone.

  110. Barb & Maggie
    5:59 pm on June 10th, 2010

    Then there is the bookin-ass, which is to really, really get going! Don't they talk like that in the wild wild west?

    Yes, I have heard that expression many times…have used it myself. It has been around for awhile.

  112. Riö - The Evil
    6:07 pm on June 10th, 2010

    Siberh!…Do we talk like that and I just don’t know about it???…huh?… booking-ass?…heh!heh!

    I'm gonna need to book on out of here and get some sleep. Huskie kisses to everyone from the powder puff.

    6:16 pm on June 10th, 2010

    Okay!… Mr. Siberh!.. Book on out of here!..heh! … See you tomorrow maybe?.. snort!

  115. Riö - The Evil
    6:19 pm on June 10th, 2010

    Bookin-Ass’… It doesn’t really roll off my tongue, so I probably won’t use it at all…ever…. heh!

  116. Siberian Husky
    6:23 pm on June 10th, 2010

    Rio, I don't know I don't think people use it like they once did. It was in fashion long before you and I were born. This may be why you have never heard it.

  117. Riö - The Evil
    6:39 pm on June 10th, 2010

    Siberh!…I hope tomorrow you won’t smell so much like a powder-puff!..heh!.. I like you a lot anyway, no matter what you smell like … snort!

  118. Barb & Maggie
    6:40 pm on June 10th, 2010

    SiberH, Hope you are smelling more like yourself soon. Mom is old, so she probably doesn't think bookin-ass has been around all that long. We are going to book off to beddy-by. Good night all. Sweet dreams, Newfie pups.

    I think I will get into bed and read a book. No rush though.

    tee hee goodnight all.
