Beginnings (Repeat)

On the road with some computer issues, so here’s a beginnings repeat.

On Sunday we’ve been doing beginnings – all the Chet and Bernie’s (as part of Chetspeak) – and now taking on all the Peter Abrahams novels in chronological order. Here, from 1998, #9 – A PERFECT CRIME. said: “An extraordinary high-water mark in the art of suspense … He even creates a shower scene – unbearably frightening, excruciatingly long, and the blackest of black comedy – that will make you forget the one in Psycho.”

Thursday, the best day of the week – the day of all days that Francie was predisposed to say yes. But here in the artist’s studio, with its view of the Dorchester gas tank superimposed on the harbor beyond, she couldn’t bring herself to do it. The problem was she hated the paintings.

    We are curious which IDs W&Ts Paw used. When we checked where we left them, all were there with a thank you note, a Slim Jim for a tip and an IOU for the forthcoming hitching up of his legal briefs.

    The wedding was great. Beau and Luna, having been Restored to Prime, danced the night away. Who knew that pug could cut a rug! Rio won the dance off against the newly wed, Belle Starr was in sparkle bliss until the crown filed a restraining not order, and Nigel showed LouLou a good time once he let down his ears. Charlie filled B’s handbag with food to snack on during the blur home. Before the night was through, Dawson found Ole Doc asleep atop a throne, his goal of the big bed all but forgotten. As for us, we were well behaved gentledogs just as you would expect. LouLou’s maw did leave us a note when we returned LouLou—-in near mint condition—- to her place. It suggested that we check-in to Mother Jail. Don’t mind if we do. We want to see the Doc shaped bread Friend makes first paw.
