April Fools

“Chet could do a post but say there’s no post,” Spence says.

“Or not do a post and say there is one,” says Admin.

“Or we could just leave a blank space,” says Spence.

“Or take down the whole thing,” says Admin.

“And sue the publisher,” says Spence.

“And invite Putin to take over the whole series,” says Admin.

“And change everything into cyrillic from now on,” says Spence.

“Who would win in an arm-wrestle between Putin and Obama?” says Admin.

“We could say they’ll be arm-wrestling live on the blog tomorrow,” says Spence.

“Hey, let’s say it,” says Admin. “Live, on chetthedog tomorrow: Obama arm-wrestles Putin. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind event.”

    Spence and Admin aren't getting along. "It was just an April Fool's joke," Spence says. "That no one seemed to get," says Admin. No idea what they're talking about. Arm-wrestling? Bernie's a great arm-wrestler, never loses. Is this Putin dude a perp? Heads up, Mr. Putin.

    Putin is not a perp. He has agreed to sign the nuclear arms reduction treaty.

    Obama won the arm wrestle. He is a great president.

    Cool, an arm wrestling match. Nice. Who are you voting for to win, Rio? I'm voting for Putin. whoever that is…

    Great?… gag!

    Chet!…No action today buddy?… grump!…What’s going on?….sniff…We’ve been out and about town buying stuff…snort!… I think I’m being punished for having such a good time last night…drat!…Maybe I better read what I said last night….mmmmm!… I may have offended everybody and now they are mad and taking it out on poor Chet!…grunt!

    I went or a swim this morning, then had a bath and my teeth brushed this afternoon. Mom says I can do the Iditarod next year.

    Been OUTSIDE! Sun, warmth, lovely dogs. Not a picture of the dogs today though. Here's a close up of the river!

    I still think that Spence and Admin were out partying with Rio.

    and I still can't type. gag, cough, sputter–No, I am not turning into a pug. The wind is blowing over 50 mph here, dust and sand blowing around. In some places the visibility is less than a mile. Springtime in the desert.

    My gosh Melanie. That is just what mom needed on a day like today. Is that the creek? It looks like the Bering Sea.

    I just read above it. It is your river. That is a pretty photograph with the way the light is on the water.

    Siber-H!…. went for a swim?? …. How unusual for him…snort!….Wind is blowing like a bastard here too….grunt!…Ruining a nice sunny day with dust and dirt!…gag!

    Chet: Let Spence and Admin know that we did know it was an April Fool's joke but there were too many threats: such as Admin saying the blog would be closed down. You'll have to grap him by the pant legs and give him a piece of OUR minds.

    I agree with Irma, Obama is a great president. Rio, I'm glad that you had fun last night whatever the celebration was and I'm also glad that you didn't sing. It's 77 here, sunny, with a light, soft breeze and the birds (sorry Chet, etc.) are celebrating.

    Melanie: Lovely water.

    So!… Did anyone have any good April Fools jokes played on them today?… snort!… I mean besides the one Spencer and Admin tried to pull… heh!… Or did anyone pull off a clever joke?…grunt!….I would have been really pushing it if I tried to pull anything today…wheeze!… so I have been on my best behavior all day… boring!

    Way to go! All you April-foolers. And I believed all of you. Never again will I be so gullible. Nice white water, Melanie. Or is that more April-foolery?

    Wow!… I was outside doing my business and then there was a great big flash of Lightning and then Thunder roared!…yeek!… I ran inside as quick as I could… yelp!….Now its raining outside and flashing and booming…snort! …

    HI all,

    I might stay awake a little tonight. I totally believed the post except for admin saying to take the blog down. So NOT going to happen. Chet is way too popular.

    ~~And Rio, If I were sneaking around with Admin and spying on you and Wookie and Siber-H you would never know. I am quite a sneaky little cat. And quiet too. Not a noisy snuffly pug type. I could be right beside you and you would never know.

    I don't like thunder, but right now I' be willing to trade some blowing sand for thunder and rain. I'm beginning to feel like I'm in a movie about the French Foreign Legion. gasp, cough, sputter, gag

    The book, "The Worst Hard Times", about the dust bowl in the thirties is an excellent book. I wonder why I thought of that book today.

    Hmmm!…. I just watched Alice’s video…. Snort!… Where are You in the video Alice?… grunt!… It’s just a a lot of highway and water… snicker!… Not very imaginative at all!… heh…I was hoping to see you in action!…grunt!

    Alice!… How did you get your video out on the Video Page anyway?…snort!

    ~Rio, I started The Tutor today and I know why you said I would like it. Ruby is definitely the precursor to Ingrid in the Echo Falls books. I am only on page 47 though so I still have a ways to go. In the beginning PA thanks his daughter Rosie "whose responses, while less patient perhaps and no doubt deservedly so, were exactly what I needed every time."

    ~~Alice's staff

    PS Alice posted for you but her post is being moderated. She put in a honking big picture of herself! She also put in the link to her video. I will probably be asleep before it gets up.

    ~Rio, dahling,

    I have no idea how it happened.

    I do have an account at Youtube and I think Alice went there and clicked upload and chose the video. I know she had to do it twice because the first time the video was not the right type.

    She won't tell me how she got the right type, but she was using Windows Movie Maker and I think she had to save it with a different extention. She saved it to my desktop so she could find it when youtube was browsing for the link. That is what she does with all her cute photo's.

    I have no idea if she could ever figure it out again. With all these negative comments she might not try again.

    She seems rather upset about it. She sneaked out of the house today and rolled in dirt. She was caught immediately, well, after she rolled in dirt.

    Cousin Molly told me to watch out for her and to wear these special glasses.

  33. Rio - The Evil Pug
    4:11 pm on April 1st, 2010

    Alert!….Everybody put your glasses on!… snort!… Just in case her photo shows up!…grunt!… She could be up to something and trying to hypnotize us all for some strange reason…wheeze!…Even though we are all minding our own business right now…gulp!

  34. AbbietheKitty
    4:12 pm on April 1st, 2010

    It is too late for Mollypop. I have her bamboozled. She is under my influence for sure. She always forgets her glasses.

    Heh heh heh

    SiberH…you sure fooled the kats!!! We were wondering if the blog had entered bizarro world and everything that is before is not now and everything that is not before now is!

    4:29 pm on April 1st, 2010

    Oh Gus & BB – That's it! I'm in Bizarro World.

    If Alice likes to roll in dirt, she can't be all bad. I didn't think cats did that sort of stuff.

  38. Mollypop
    4:32 pm on April 1st, 2010

    But Alice – Thanks to the Admin/Moderator being so slow and your Staff's warning, I do have the special glasses on, so mesmerize away. You won't get me this time. Ha ha.

    Wow!… Puss N’ Boots are talking Science Fiction speak …snort!… Or like Dr. Who or something…whoa!!… Or maybe Back to The Future… hmmm!.

    We do drift in and out of Bizarro World, don't we. Ever wonder what someone who had just read the books and in all innocence came to Chet's blog and started reading our posts would think.

  41. Rio - The Evil Pug
    4:51 pm on April 1st, 2010

    Heh!… Well, remember Boo?… the Pug!… He stuck around for maybe one day and we scared his butt off real quick!… heh!… Poor Chet will only have us here till someone very very very brave can break in and crack the code!…snort!

    4:56 pm on April 1st, 2010

    Abbie!… I didn’t mean to upset Alice over the artistic quality of her video….snort!… I was just upset that I didn’t get a glimpse of her in the car!… heh!… Seeing her “live” would mean a lot to me…sniff!…for some reason…heh!…

    Dusty Alice!…snicker!

    It's not like I feel sorry for you Rio. But there is a very strange video on youtube. Put out by Drewietube. Christmas 2007. Maybe you can find it if you search out drewietube and type in 'mom gives Alice a ride'. (Alice is such a lazypaws)



  44. Rio - The Evil Pug
    5:59 pm on April 1st, 2010

    WhoooHoo!… I just saw Alice as she looked 2 years & 3 months ago!… heh!… Right there was that infamous Fluffy Tail!..heh!.. And beautiful fake colored fur!… wow!… I still don’t know how she got her video out there on Chet’s Page!… grunt!… Not that I’m looking to be there. I’m just curious!…snorkel!

    Well!… tired is not even close to describing me right now…snort!..That bathtub was not a very good bed last night!… grunt!… So I am off to my real bed for a good nights sleep!…sigh!…Take care everyone and see ya’ all tomorrow!… wheeze!
