Beginnings: Christmas in July!

On Sundays we do beginnings. Today: Santa 365, one of the Chet and Bernie e-shorts. It starts like so:

“There’s no Santa Claus,” Charlie said.

“Who told you that?” said Bernie.


“Who’s Esmé?”

“At school.”

“Well,” said Bernie, “everyone has their own opinion.”

“It’s not an opinion, Dad,” said Charlie. “It’s a scientific fact.”


“From a scientist.”

“Any scientist in particular?”

“Groucho Marx.”

“Esmé told you that?”


“Know much about Groucho Marx?”

Charlie shrugged his skinny little shoulders. “He was a scientist and he said there ain’t no Santa Claus.”

“What do Esmé’s parents do?”

“Drive her to school. Pick her up.”

“I meant for a living.”

“Like you’re a private eye?”

“Yeah. Like that.”

“I don’t think they’re private eyes,” Charlie said.

“Why not?”

“They’re rich.”

    This beginning always makes me laugh, and it is my favorite C&B cover!

    Could use a little Christmas weather in this neck of the woods, it is really hot and humid!

    Staff: We have mourning doves on our complex, which is why it is probably called “Dove Court.” :^)

    Good day to all!

    Hot here, and soon to be hotter. Oh well. I could have stayed in Arizona.
