I was thinking – as other mystery writers surely have – about Dashiell Hammett the other day, and that suddenly led me to Asta! Anyone seen any of the Thin Man movies (based on Hammett’s book?) Any other movie dogs you like?

    Interesting article.

    Rose: To answer your question from yesterday–No, I did not need fake ID to pre-order Paws and Claws. LOL!

    B: :^)

    I have seen all the “Thin Man” movies. In fact, I have the boxed set. A few years ago, Grizz and I saw “The Thin Man” on the big screen…What a treat!

    I love “Lassie Come Home.” It always makes me cry like a baby.

    Other film dogs I love…Toto and Uggie!

    Belle Starr: Thank you for your update. Prayers continue to go out to youse and the Hobbit for your safety.

    Create a good day!

    Hi, guys! Mom is back from her gamboling trip and catching up. OMD! The fires in Alaska. How sad and scary. Prayers for all in that great state.

    Can’t wait for the new book. Mom pre-ordered a while back but the waiting is hard.

    At the risk of veering off topic but not knowing how else to ask: are there still monthly Friends of Chet; and if so how does one submit an entry? (I am not one of the People of the Book) Thanks to all!

    Wose! Well, Mom didn’t lose all her gamboling budget but that’s only because she stopped early and just enjoyed visiting with her friends. Had a great time, but didn’t come home rich. Typical trip for her, heh!

    Beau: We would like to point out that we didn’t lose any money gamboling with BooBear’s maw. This has to be a mark in our favor.
