A Cat Was Involved

“Do we have a pub date for this e-original short story?” Admin says. “All about how Chet and Bernie met, if rumors are true?”

“August fourteenth, about a month before A Fistful of Collars,” says Spence. “I can’t address any rumors at this time.”

“And what’s the download price, if you don’t mind my asking?”

“Ninety-nine cents.”

“Seems reasonable, unless it’s one of those extra-short short stories.”

“It is not.”

“OK, then – when do I get to read it?”

“August fourteenth – didn’t we just cover that?”

Our condolences to Staff, Dawson and Catty Librarian.

Welcome Catherine, Athena, Kerby, Bear.

Admin: And don’t forget the pop quiz (see yesterday’s post). Entries accepted until high noon today ET, or even later! (Spence: huh?)

    Wha!?…What happened to June or July?…grunt!

    What would it be like to sit in an office all day with Spence and Admin? Pondering. The short-story sounds like fun.

    Good morning all.

    Stover!…You’d probably have to listen to that old-timey music they like so much…snort!…All day long.

    I’d have to do something about that music. Perhaps I could convince them to listen to classical or new age…….

    Stover!…Then you would have to listen to their constant bickering over the smallest things…heh!

    Good morning. August???? {sigh}

    Dawson, Staff, and Catty Librarian: Our mom went to one of those awful meetings last night and didn’t return until it was past our bedtimes. So we didn’t have our iPaw and didn’t read your news until this morning.

    We are so so sorry for all 3 of you and your parents. It is so hard to lose your sibling, but we are very glad that you all have each other and such wonderful memories. Please be at peace and be happy that Chris is now at peace.

    How will we get to read the story if we don’t have a nook? Will it show up on this here blog?

    Oh, good morning all.

    This is Melanie’s big packing day before she departs for the wedding. Exciting week for her family. Would love to hear part of the ceremony that Leonard is going to perform. Do you think Melanie or the Royal’s Mum will post it for us?

    Rio: I’d prefer the bickering over bluegrass.

  9. Staff
    10:11 am on May 9th, 2012

    Dear Friends,
    Thank you for your kind thoughts. They are much appreciated. It has been wonderful that the 4 of us (the TurtleMan is here too) are able to be together at this time. We are glad Chris’s struggle is over.

    How about Josh Hamilton’s four home runs in a single game last night in Baltimore. Even though he was on the opposing team (the Rangers), the Baltimore fans gave him a standing ovation when he took the field in the ninth inning after hitting the fourth. Pretty classy, huh. I bet Macy was twirling all night long.

    Wookie, those 4 homers brought back good memories of Michael Jack Schmidt for us.

    Here is a photo of Elliot the massage Kat hard at work. He refuses to actually touch the client, preferring to work on a lambskin draped over the form. (He thinks skin without fur is “icky”).

    Well, I now know why there was so much texting going on between Masquers and Belle Starr. I awoke this morning to a bit of commotion and a lot of very loud whispering downstairs. When I checked it out, I found three things: Belle Starr with a hanging flower basket hockey taped to her head, Masquers balancing and origami crane atop that lovely cat-dog head and Luna wearing a tasteful and age appropriate mother-of-the knucklehead corsage on her collar. “What are the three of you doing?”

    It seems Whitey-Lance did a bit of talking about the royal wedding he attended last year. Apparently, the girls felt slighted that they didn’t get to go last year. As it turns out, a plan was hatched to blur to newf pack wedding and snatch the opportunity to wear silly hats. Don’t worry, Rose, they weren’t going to leave you out; they selected a very large centerpiece for your hat. I hope you have a very strong neck.

    10:24 am on May 9th, 2012

    Dear Rio,
    Dad does not say much but Mom was unhappy that she could not help him or go to see him. I know we are all glad that he does not suffer any more.

  17. Staff
    10:27 am on May 9th, 2012

    Bella, I hope there will be pictures! Also I hope that centerpiece for dear Rose does not need water. That will make it extra heavy.

    Why is Admin encouraging more entries up until noon? He already has the winning entry – OURS!

    10:33 am on May 9th, 2012

    Staff: We realized too late the omission of your fourth sibling, the Turtleman, in our condolences to the family yesterday. To all the family, our best.

    Elliot: Very nice photo.

    August?!!!

    Rangers!…Wookie and Howlers, I have a feeling the Rangers are going to be Unstoppable this year…grunt!dammit!

  21. Rose
    10:35 am on May 9th, 2012

    Elliott is a very fine looking kat. Would love a massage from him.

    Oooo, I can’t wait to see my hat!

  24. B.Stover
    10:49 am on May 9th, 2012

    Elliot is beautiful.

  25. Snowhook Bella
    10:50 am on May 9th, 2012

    Natasha: I don’t think it is so much that the Smoochers were invited as they planned to crash, I mean, infiltrate the fancy spy event. As far as the hats, well, Belle Starr has a mind of her own.

  26. Masquers
    10:51 am on May 9th, 2012

    Damit! the kat is out of the bag. It was supposed to be a surprise.
    Actually I’m taking time off from my regular Jazz Gigs to play with my friends at the wedding reception. I’ll be looking very suave wearing a French Beret.
    Natasha & Siber! This wedding is shaping up to be the Grand Event of the season. Heh!

  27. Melanie
    10:52 am on May 9th, 2012

    GOOD DOG! What is going on NOW! (actually I love youse guys planning on coming to the wedding!)

    Off to Pack! I actually had to heat up the west wing because it was very damp. I’d like my clothes to be dry!

  28. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi
    10:54 am on May 9th, 2012

    What is a wedding? What is a hat? I want to be invited to the hat thing.

  30. Masquers
    11:02 am on May 9th, 2012

    Rose: Looking forward to seeing you and the Prof there. He may want to join us in a set.

  31. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:05 am on May 9th, 2012

    Hats!…Beau and I will go to the wedding but we are not wearing these hats she picked out for us…grump!

  32. Tupper and Gilly
    11:15 am on May 9th, 2012

    Rio – once Mama stopped laughing she said she would pay REAL money if you and Beau would show up in those outfits. Come on – think of the money you could raise for Snowhook!

    11:17 am on May 9th, 2012

    Hello everybody. Our girl Angie, who is staying with us while mom and dad are at the coast, left the laptop on when she went to work this am. Too bad there is no credit card available. We could have quite a day.

    Those pugs look like BLOOMING idiots, heh-heh.

    We send our best wishes to the happy couple, but will not be attending, since we have to make sure that the house is properly coated in dog hair for when m&d get home. I personally don’t shed, but I will be happy to assist the others in their efforts.

    I don’t know if mom saw the game last night. She is in Houston Astros territory. Woohoo Joshie!

    Oops, I am late for my mid-morning nap.

    Later, y’all.

  34. Rose
    11:27 am on May 9th, 2012

    Masquers, I’ll have the Prof bring his gypsy jazz guitar. He is always ready to play. I can’t wait to see the Smoochers in all their wedding finery.

    Macy, I hope you are enjoying yourself. I was thinking about you this morning when I saw the replay of Josh Hamilton’s 4 home runs! Wooohoooo!

    Rio, I think you and Beau missed Carnival, but I would pay lots for a picture of you and Beau dressed like that!!!

  35. Steve
    11:45 am on May 9th, 2012

    Rio – you look so unhappy in that flower hat.

  36. BearSpiritDog
    11:49 am on May 9th, 2012

    Contest entry submitted by someone here on our behalf. Now we wait.
    Tomorrow, at least, is closer than AUGUST. Humph!

    Rio: You and Beau. Smirk.

  37. Melanie
    12:17 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Okay, it’s after twelve. Not having any idea what Admin and Spence were talking about, and since I doubt ANYONE will steal my idea . .

    I did a mathematical proof.

    Snort.

    Love the picture Riö! Can I borrow the red one? I think it would look great with purpler.

    Time to clean the Element. Hose, simple green and a mop!

    BELLA CHECK SDD

  38. Siber-H
    12:18 pm on May 9th, 2012

    We are looking forward to the short story. All the rumors about what the story is about started on this blog.

    Cogratulations to Josh Hamilton!! I’m with Rio…The Rangers are on their way!
    Let us hope that the Rockies aren’t on their way to last place. GAH The Rockies need starting pitchers.

    Oh Dawg, Natasha wants to go to another wedding, Oh Dawg.
    At least this one is on this side of the Alantic and part of our blog family is in the wedding.

  39. Siber-H
    12:26 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Rio and Beau, tee hee I dare you guys to show up at the wedding looking like that. I would pay good money to Snowhook to see it.

  40. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:33 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Rebecca!…CHECK YOUR SDD ASAP!…Grunt!

  41. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:41 pm on May 9th, 2012

    SiberH!…Why don’t you pay good money to Snowhook and we’ll call it even?…snort!…When is the 2013 Iditarod Entrance Fee due anyways?….wheeze!

  42. Siber-H
    1:11 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Rio, I don’t know. Rebecca needs to tell us. Last year, remember, they paid the entrance fee early because there was a drawing and the chance of getting the entry fee returned.

  43. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:14 pm on May 9th, 2012

    SiberH!…Check your SDD, and be quick about it…grunt!

  44. Melanie
    1:16 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Element is cleaned out! Now has a fan in it. The weather is yucky. Very humid.

    While Patsy and I were on the ice run, The Pack escaped to the river. They had a very good time. They should smell perfect for the wedding crashing infiltration.

    Next. Fat Free French Vanilla yogurt and a piece of dry toast. Yum!

    Then it’s moving the stuff I’m taking to the west wing.

  45. B.Stover
    1:26 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Melanie,

    Buddy: Check and responded.

    T.C.: Now you need to check your SDD.

  50. T.C.
    2:10 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Howlers: Received and processed. This is fantastic news!

  51. Melanie
    2:11 pm on May 9th, 2012

    EVERYONE CHECK THEIR SDD!

    Steve and Terri, I would have sent this to you all also. But I don’t have your emails. Don’t worry though, you’ll know soon enough!

  52. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:16 pm on May 9th, 2012

    We love it! Perfect! It doesn’t get any better than this.

    Melanie, it’s a masterpiece!!!

  56. T.C.
    2:40 pm on May 9th, 2012

    sniff sniff sniff is right. The only ones who send us SDDs are the Howlers.

  57. OleyHowlers
    2:46 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Don’t feel sad, T. Buddy is the only one who sends us SDDs and his news is rather humdrum.

  58. Siber-H
    2:46 pm on May 9th, 2012

    TC: Did the Howlers get this SDD from Melanie?

  59. T.C.
    2:52 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Nope no SDD here.

  60. Rose
    2:56 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Masquers, would you have time to tango with me at the wedding???

  61. Melanie
    2:57 pm on May 9th, 2012

    I’m pretty sure I sent it to you T.C. Let me try again.

  62. B.Stover
    3:06 pm on May 9th, 2012

    It is wonderful Melanie.

    (I don’t know T.C.’s email address or I’d send it on.)

  63. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:06 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Howlers!…I definitely saw your email address on the big email Melanie sent out…grunt!…check “arabeq”

  64. Melanie
    3:06 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Okay, I had sent the email to T.C. and all, it didn’t get there. If you don’t get it, please let me know and I’ll send the email to you separately.

  65. OleyHowlers
    3:12 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Melanie resent and this time we received it. But we are having trouble viewing the video.

  66. bluecat
    3:33 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Melanie – you are incredibly talented. All of it made me cry. Amazing…

    We’ll be with you as you plunder off to the wedding weekend.

    Thanks to SQ for his support.

    Elliot – you are one beautiful Kat.

  67. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:38 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Love!…Elliot and BlueKat sitting in a tree. K-I-S-S-I-N-G…heh!snort!

  68. Melanie
    3:41 pm on May 9th, 2012

    OleyHowlers, try changing the quality to a lower level.

  69. Snowhook Bella
    3:45 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Move over Ken Burns! Melanie is something special, isn’t she? (whispering) When Melanie sent the first draft to us, I took it out to show AJ. He was working outside. He took a break and we sat on the deck watching it. I looked over and saw that his cheeks were wet. Was he crying? Of course not. “I…uh…just have sawdust in my eyes.” As strong of spirit and body a AJ is, he has a very soft spot in his heart for the dogs.

    Rose: The handbag that the Smoochers picked out for you looks very much like a watering can. Maybe Natahsa would be willing to lend you something more appropriate and less organic.

    Melanie: From our pack to your pack, they wouldn’t miss the big day for the world even if it means sneaking in the back door. Have fun!

    Rio: The first day to sign up for te race is the 30th of June. This will be the first year that I won’t be at the picnic with AJ. I will be across the country finishing up at a work conference. I told him he better stick around if they do a drawing to get your entrance fee back; you must be present to win. Snort!

  70. OleyHowlers
    3:52 pm on May 9th, 2012

    We will try that Melanie. Got to run now.

    HAVE A GREAT FANTASTIC TIME !!!

  71. Mollypop's Mom
    3:55 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Melanie – The video is wonderful! My outright sobbing is now down to just sniffing. It is so beautiful.

  72. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:56 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Entrance!…Fee!…snort!…I’m a tad concerned about that small thing….grunt!…We don’t have nearly enough Items turned in yet to cover this huge entrance fee…sniff!…Everybody please figure out something you can donate to the Store to raise some cash by June 30th…snort!

  73. BearSpiritDog
    4:18 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Sob! Melanie, it is a Masterpiece, A Work of Art.
    We are proud…So Proud. Sniff
    Can we offer it as a DVD for the Spring Boutique?
    We would pay BIG BUCKS for it.

  74. Melanie
    4:39 pm on May 9th, 2012

    hmmm, I don’t know BearSpiritDog.

    I do have some DVDs around here somewhere. I have yet to make a DVD with OS Lion. I’d be willing to try.

    Let me think on it. (snort! as if I’m going to be thinking about anything for the next 5 days!)

    While watching the video, we started out sniffing, then it was sobbing, but we stood up and cheered and clapped when we saw the wonderful photo of Anabelle. sniff

  77. Rose
    4:45 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Rio, do you know what the entrance fee is???

  78. Rose
    4:47 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Rio, you can SDD the answer if you’d like.

  79. Siber-H
    4:47 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Rose, set down…last year it was $3000.

  80. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:05 pm on May 9th, 2012

    3000!…I wonder if my friend would be able to make 120 5×7 projects between now and June 30th….snort!

  81. Siber-H
    5:07 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Well, Rio, They WOULD sell.

  82. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:23 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Busy!…She would be too busy to make 120 – maybe she could make 10 and I would sell them for 300.00 a piece…heh!heh!…She is shaking her head…sniff!

    Bear, your wise , handsome face is up top.

    Sammy, you must be soooo happy. I bet your girl is happy to be home with you!

    SiberH: I’ll see what I can do…..

    Rose: If I can take a break between sets, I would be honored to dance the tango with you.

  88. Siber-H
    6:19 pm on May 9th, 2012

    I hope Natasha doesn’t think we are going to dance the tango. ha ha ha

  89. BearSpiritDog

    We finally got to watch the amazing video. Mom and Pop are tearing. What a wonderful job The MIL did!
    Are we now allowed to share? Like on FB and stuff?

  91. BearSpiritDog
    7:55 pm on May 9th, 2012

    O.Howlers; Don’t quote me, but I think Melanie mentioned in her email she hoped everyone would share the video. We are trying to convince her to make a DVD.

    Kirby: Forgot to say…Great idea your mom’s library had with the Where the Wild Things Are theme. What a Special Place it must be!

  92. Princess Sam
    8:10 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Rio, I know I’m hours ahead of you watching American Idol so be sure to watch.. Philip Phillips is up first and is unbelievable!

    8:38 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Wow, Melanie, it is just amazing. You are just incredibly creative. Totally blown away, and a little teary-eyed too. My dad and I cheered at the end. Have a great time at the wedding. Wookie

    Well, I decided to dive back into the blog. I know I have missed a lot of happenings and meant to try and jump back on May 1st but here it is May 9th. I’ve been super busy heading into retirement and on an emotional roller coaster which I didn’t expect. Questions –can someone SDD me the answers (and recap some highlights of what I have missed these last 3-4 weeks):

    what is this DVD people are commenting about?
    I have some stuff ready to send to Rebecca for the store. Are these items for an auction or are we just to set a price? What date are we aiming for?

    Even though I haven’t been around, all of youse have been in my thoughts and thanks, Rio, for checking in with me.

  95. Rose
    8:56 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Masquers, I would be truly honored!

    Welcome back, Charris…You’ve been missed!

    SiberH: Would you dance the tango with me??

    Rebecca: I might start a fashion trend with my watering can pocket book.

    Sammy, are you and your girl all cuddled up? I’m happy for you!

  96. Melanie
    9:08 pm on May 9th, 2012

    CHarris: It’s a boutique not an auction so you set the price. Melanie made a video for Snowhook. She sent the link to our email addresses. Everyone is asking if she can make a dvd. She’s going to try after she gets back from her son’s wedding.

    Thank you Melanie and have a wonderful trip tomorrow.

    Happy for Sammy and glad C Harris checked in.

    Well, Rose, I would love to but neither you nor I want to listen to Natasha. Thank you for asking.

    CHarris, Woo Woo and welcome back. Stover just did an excellent job of condensing everything that has been going on. Plus, We have been talking about baseball a lot. Stover blocks all of that out.

    Could someone please SDD CHarris the video that Melanie sent us today? She will love it.

    Oh Good Grief, Natasha. I have never watched Dancing With the Stars in my entire life.

    I am speechless.

    GO ROCKIES!!!

    10:18 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Rockies!…How come the Rockies aren’t playing tonight?…wuffle!

  110. Siber-H
    10:27 pm on May 9th, 2012

    I don’t know because my newspaper said they were. I was getting ready to turn the tv on the game when I typed the GO ROCKIES post.

  111. Siber-H
    10:32 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Rio, The Rockies played the Padres today…must have been an afternoon game. Tomorrow, the Rockies play the Dodgers.
    Do you want me to tell you the final score of today’s game?

  112. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    10:32 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Rio and SiberH– That is because they played this afternoon. Won’t say more in case you want to watch a rerun. Wookie

  113. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:39 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Yes!…Because they are not going to replay it tonight…grump!

  114. Wookie of Chevy Chase

    Rio, the Rockies beat San Diego 6-2, with their new pitcher Christian Friedrich pitching six solid innings to win his debut and Jason Giambi and Wilin Rosario hit RBI doubles off the top of the fences at Petco Park. Wookie

    I just got home and it is blustery and cool. I’m going to do dog chores, come back in, light a fire and watch a certain video on YouTube.

    SiberH: You may have led a certain spy on at the last bash when you, uh, gave her a tour of your truck.

    CHH: Welcome back! We have missed you.

  116. Siber-H
    11:00 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Rebecca, I like Natasha, but I don’t dance. gah

    Perhaps there is hope for this new Rockies’ pitcher. I would have liked to have seen this game, but, oh no, the Albuquerque Journal got the time wrong.
    Thanks Wookie, You are more trustworthy than the newspaper.

    night all

    Wookie!…Thanks! I can sleep soundly tonight knowing the losing streak is over…snort!

    SiberH. I think I feel a song coming on, inspired by your last comment.

    “Your momma don’t dance and your daddy don’t rock and roll …”

    Kenny Loggins, a really great song writer/singer.

    Good night now.

    Melanie, we are going to watch the video now. Got the email at work and of course, YouTube is blocked on business computer.

    SiberH, Dancing with the Stars is really a great show! Mom loves it.

    Melanie, have a wonderful time at the wedding. You know we will be thinking of you and your family Saturday.

    Welcome back, C.Hobbit!!

    Just watched the video and WOW!! What a wonderful piece. Melanie, you have missed your calling.

    Go Snowhook!!

  122. C.Hobbit
    11:45 pm on May 9th, 2012

    Yes, I have the video in my email which I had also gotten behind on. If it is going to make me teary, I think I’ll wait to see it. It sounds beautiful so thank you Melanie.

    Siber – vhen you see Natasha in dress for vedding – it vill make your heart dance – just let your feet follow, and ve vill make pretty music together.

    Your Siber don’t dance
    And your Rio don’t rock and roll

    Your Siber don’t dance
    And your Rio don’t rock and roll

    When evening comes around
    And its time to go to town

    Where do you go
    To rock and roll

    Where do you go
    To rock and roll

  124. Snowhook Bella

    SiberH: Your job is quite simple on the dance floor—let your partner shine. And, if that slit gets any higher on Natasha’s dress no one will even notice that your paws aren’t moving to the beat. AJ isn’t much of a dancer either, but boy can he dip.

    Hey, y’all! I’m late coming to the dance tonight because Mom had a church council meeting, and then she and Dad had to move everything from the new refrigerator to the old refrigerator because the new refrigerator ain’t workin’ so hot — or maybe I should say it is working hot! The refrigerator was 60+, and the freezer was -16. Not good news either way. :( The new refrigerator is a stainless steel name brand with all the bells and whistles — only three years old. The old one was a cheap, no-name one that’s 15 years old. But it’s working just fine and the “new” one is acting like it’s on its last legs. Sigh….

    Melanie: Great video. It made Mom get all teary eyed, but not me. I’m too tough for that. Sniff…sniff. Danged allergies!

    CHobbit: Welcome back! Among the highlights that you’ve missed, we have to include Stovernia! Our new homeland was founded when Barb and/or Maggie misread something, thinking it said Stovernia. So we, of course, took that and plundered on with it! In Stovernia, Bee is the empress or queen or whatever she’s calling herself these days. Oh, wait. I think she decided on benevolent dictator. Any mention of that “b” sport that Spence is so fond of is greeted by a jail sentence, which actually isn’t so bad, because Bee serves her homemade pie to the prisoners. I can’t remember all the rules — if there’s more than two, we dogs are all hopeless — but I’m sure if you enter “Stovernia” into the search box, you be able to read the post Spence did about it.

    OK, Mom’s off to bed so I have to sign off. Good night, y’all!!!

    C.Hobbit Harris, you will notice a few photos look very familiar to you!

    Staff, Got meds!
    Siber-H, Got Dancing shoes!

    Everyone, Got To Go!

    I hope we’ll be able to get that story downloaded to the laptop (PDF format?) here. We don’t have any eReader or tablet or smartphone or …? Just the laptop and 11 year old digital camera. The camera is used mainly to take photos of beautiful me playing outside. Naturally!

    I’m looking forward to the juicy details of what happened to Chet … or rather, what Chet DID with a cat. Mind you, I like MY cat Flower quite a lot. She doesn’t get in my way and helps me with our job of keeping Mom warm when she lies on the couch to watch TV.
