Beginnings

On Sunday we take a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel, including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker. How about – since I recently saw something about elephants – To Fetch A Thief? An elephant named Peanut plays an important role.

“I smell trouble,” Bernie said.

Better stop right there. Not that I doubt Bernie. The truth is I believe everything he says. And he has a nice big nose for a human. But what’s that saying? Not much.

It’s a fact that trouble has a smell – human trouble especially, sour and penetrating – but Bernie had never smelled trouble before, or if so he hadn’t mentioned it, and Bernie mentioned all kinds of things to me. We’re partners in the Little Detective Agency, me and Bernie, Bernie’s last name being Little. I’m Chet, pure and simple.

    Greetings!

    This week:

    Daylight Savings Time
    Full Worm Moon tomorrow
    Friday the 13th…

    Coincidence???

    We here do not like Daylight Savings Time, so we are grumping along with Rio.

    Good luck to all those running the Iditarod!

    Make it a good day!

    I agree with Rose–I do not like Daylight Savings Time.

    Rio: I have not seen the AMC show you mentioned the other day.
    It sounds interesting.

    Good morning all.

    Stover!…Are you referring to “Dispatches From Elsewhere”??…snort!…I’ve watched 2 episodes and I am still scratching my head. I really like all the actors except for Sally Field. I don’t like her character yet….sniff!…Maybe there is more to her but right now…bah!…The main male (the first one) I like a lot and I know I have seen him somewhere before but I cannot place him. He is perfect for his part…snuffle!…Watch and tell me what you think is going on, because I’m at a loss. It is entertaining…heh!
