Back in the Porsche, driving away from the tiny box canyon, all by ourselves on a dirt track, me riding shotgun: what’s better than this? Also, I had the feeling we were getting somewhere. We had the two rifles that had fallen from above; we had a piece of the old biplane wing with some numbers on it; we had the gold bar. All that had to be good, right?

“Hey, Chet, give me a little space, big guy.” I did, for as long as I could. Then I noticed I’d kind of slid back over to the middle, nice and close toBernie. I was in such a good mood! Bernie laughed and gave me a pat. He was in a good mood too. “How about we pay a visit on Freddie Dancer?” he said.

Sounded good. We don’t like  getting shot at, me and Bernie.

    It sure is odd that every time I read the name "Freddie Dancer" somewhere in the distance I seem to catch the sound of the theme from Jaws. You know. That would be the one where the Great White is catching the scent of a new victim.

    or maybe it's the theme from Get Smart….

    Well Chet if you ever convince Bernie that the adventures of you two should Go Hollywood you'll have lots of musical references to use!

    Hey Chet, this is a bit off topic from your post, just wanted to let you know that the small, independently-owned bookstore I work for lets your guys come in and we even have peanut butter flavored biscuits for you (and fresh, cold water)! Also, your book is doing very well for us; I'm really looking forward to to "Thereby Hangs a Tail!"

    Gus and Wally signing in here, the two Jack Russell Terr—sts who run Miss Jan's household. We wish we could visit Jenn's store! All bookstores should allow us four-legged ones on accountabecause we have a big influence on what our hoomans purchase. That would be anything with a picture of a dog on it (like Dog On It). She has promised to read us a chapter every day of Thereby Hangs a Tail when it comes out. When again is that??
