Ain’t Over Till It’s Over

Freddie Dancer got taken away in a cruiser. Lt. Stine found a warrant for Trimmer – he’d shoplifted some hair-growth products – and they took him away, too. Kelo and Portia went off arguing with each other.

We kept the Martin Ramirez painting, the strange one with tunnels and trains. “I like this painting,” Bernie said; I did, too. “But we’re going to sell it, take a fee for our time, and give the rest to an animal shelter.” Our finances are a mess; have I mentioned that already?

So – that was that, except one day soon after we got a call. “Hi,” said a woman, her voice coming over the speaker, “I’m the great grandaughter of Addie Kline.”

“Who’s she?” said Bernie.

“She was the twin sister of Betty Kline. Betty was a Hollywood script girl back in the silent movie days.”

“Well, well, well,” said Bernie.

Request from Admin: Suppose you had to come up with a brief testimonial for a TV ad for the Little Detective Agency – any ideas?

    There's always radio, newspapers, blogs, and the yellow pages.

    Admin gave us a homework assignment.

    Are there any "Mad Men" in this blogosphere?

    I guess I missed a bunch too.

    It's a quiet day here. Raining and raining. Wojo's tired from his ordeal of yesterday, so he's napping. I've got a big ol' pot of beef stew simmering in the dutch oven, and on the stove, a stock pot going with bones left over from a chicken baked yesterday. Wojo sampled the raw stew meat for me. He says it's good. I bet he'll like stew gravy even better.

    Ad: "Mr. Little is smart and efficient, and his personable 'staff' is enthusiastic. First-rate service, all the way. The Little Detective Agency– Little solutions for big problems."

    Ad: The Little Detective Agency gives you two P.I.s for the price of one: Bernie–a hero in the film noir tradition: tough and thoughtful, courageous and sensitive, incorruptible and not easily fooled; and his Zen dog, Chet–wise, fast and practical; he grabs perps by the pant legs. End of case.
