Beginnings (More)

On Sundays we’ve been doing beginnings – all the Peter Abrahams books in chronological order, including those written under the Spencer Quinn pen name. Here from 2017 – #36, BOW WOW, third in the Bowser and Birdie middle-grade series (available at no extra charge to adults with fake ID). As with the Chet and Bernie series, the B&B’s can be read in any order.

[“Spencer Quinn speaks two languages — suspense and dog — fluently.” – Stephen King]

A car beeped outside our house at 19 Gentilly Lane. Beep beep. The beep beep of a horn hurts my ears in a way you probably wouldn’t understand, since my sense of hearing is a lot different from yours. I didn’t say better than yours, so don’t be upset. But just between you and me, it is better! I hear sounds humans don’t hear all time! For example, that drip drip drip, right now, under the kitchen sink? Down in the cupboard with all the cleaning supplies, including some tasty sponges? But never mind the sponges. The point is someone should do something to stop that drip drip drip – except they won’t because they don’t even hear it. There’s going to be a big puddly mess, and soon!

    Good morning everyone. We loved the B&B books almost as much as the C&B books.
    Sox in game 4. 8:15 EDT is game 5, could be a late night in the east.
    Happy Chetspeak, Egg Day, Beginnings and Sunday.
    Enjoy yourselves.

    Greetings!

    I am laughing at the “drip, drip, drip under the kitchen sink.” We have had many drips under our kitchen sink where our cleaning supplies and sponges are, and never heard them until a small lake had formed under the pipe. Bowser is right!

    Congrats to the Sox on their come from behind win!

    Good Sunday to all!

    Mary: I started an entire kennel based on sneaking and wotnot. It is the foundation of any solid master plan.

    Before the riddles and my nap…I did like the Book of Mormon although there have been patron complaints every show. I do it again tonight. People are very nice and it is fascinating what they choose to wear–anything from jeans and t-shirt to evening dress. One couple dressed as Mormon missionaries with fake black name tags. Ushers are not allowed to make any comments about the show even if it is positive (grounds for dismissal). A patron on the way out asked how I like it and I responded, “did YOU like it–that’s the important thing.” Ushers wear white shirts and black pants; male ushers wear same but with black ties. We kind of looked like missionaries ourselves.

    Oh my,
    I am so tired. I have been at a quilt retreat since Wednesday. I slept at home as it was at the local quilt shop. And now, on this coming Wednesday I go to ANOTHER retreat. This one about 1.5 hours away so I can’t forget anything.
    I have been packing for a week but only quilting stuff.

    Rio I have no clue about #5 and #6. Drat. I figured out the first 4.

    Tomorrow I get a new washing machine and a new dishwasher. The dishwasher has been dead for several years at least. The washing machine makes a loud thumping when it spins and it is over 20 years old so we will NOT be repairing it.

    I have to move stuff around in the kitchen so the guys (I am assuming guys) can get in to do the work. I am excited about this great event.

    Nighty noodles all.

    Dawson. Let me know if you get this. Otherwise I shall have to call you….

    Some of the retreaters this week were from Canada. They are taking a package back with them to mail from Winnepeg. They won’t be going until tomorrow so the mail will still be some time coming.

    I replaced the popcorn fabric that was borrowed by your friends and added a few more half yards that I liked. Hope you enjoy them.

    My brain cannot figure out the quiz answers until I read the answer and then they seem obvious. I know I’ve heard the cowboy one before…
