Bob And Ray And Bakersfield

“So one day – this was in Bakersfield,” said Colonel Bob, “I pulled over and let the traffic pass. Third car  went by,  just an ordinary econobox, driver looking straight ahead. But the sight of him gave me a shock, no other word for it.”


“He looked just like me, Bernie,” said Colonel Bob. “Me at twenty-five.”

“And then?” Bernie said.

“He pulled over and parked a few spaces ahead. There was no one in between. He just sat there, watching me in the rearview mirror. Finally I got out of the car, walked up, tapped on his window. ‘Something on your mind?’ I said. He turned to me. See this tooth with the little chip missing?”

Colonel Bob pulled up his lip, showing his front teeth. The most interesting thing that had happened all day! Human teeth! What a huge subject. No time to go into it now, but bottom line you’ve got to feel a little sorry for them.

“He had exactly the same thing, Bernie. Little chip, right here. ‘Yeah,’ he said, ‘I got something on my mind – hate for you.'”

Admin seems annoyed today. He read Spence this note from Buzzie Bavasi, something about The Fan, whatever that is  – “Thanks for getting the baseball right.”

    Hey, Chet. How is that even possible? One reasonable explanation would be that that is C-Bob's twin, but given the different ages, that isn't possible.

    Gulp!…. I sure wouldn’t want to be the one Admin is annoyed with today….snort!… I do believe I have been given the baseball nod ….Gruff!… So go suck eggs Dawson!… heh!… Just think, seven long months of non-stop fun…heh!

    Hey!… Look there’s lil’ Lexi!… snort!… Col. Bob and Ray could be twins if they live in different dimensions I suppose….grunt!…But more likely they are father and son….wheeze!… and the “hate” part might be because of Col. Bob’s absence during Ray’s childhood….gasp!

    Oh come on now… Definitely a time paradox going on here!

    But old CB better not do anything against young CB or he'll just pop right out of existence.

    Hmmm, any Bakersfield "sound" songs about time?

    Rio, still haven't had time to check The Tutor yet, but I do sort of remember that Wolf Dog might be right about that Zippy. But don't you call someone Zippy on the blog? Does that mean you know that dogs' habits?

    Things to contemplate during the change in innings.

    Today was heart warm shots. The Pack lines up for those, they love the treats after they get their shots.

    Franklin keeps getting back in line.

    Franklin!… What a riot that guy is!… heh!… and so good with computers too!…snort!… Say, how is Bess doing?… gasp!… what’s she been up to these days?…grunt!… Has she seen any good movies lately?… wheeze!

    Hmmm… I wonder where Stover is?… snort!… She has been pleading for more of Col. Bob and Ray all week….grunt!…. I hope she is okay…gasp!… I hope she hasn’t been trapped out there on Facebook….yikes!

    Chet you are so funny: "The most interesting thing that had happened all day!" Problem: A chipped tooth isn't genetic. However, I do want more Col. Bob story.

    Thanks for the concern Rio. I had errands to run. I don't understand why Admin is annoyed about the note. It's a compliment to the novel. (I'm not joking–I really don't understand.) Dawson is so funny!

    On April 30 the U.S. Postal Service will be issuing stamps that will help pet shelters. The stamps have dogs and/or cats pictured.

    The plot thickens with CB and his son. Can't wait for more deatils. It takes CB as long to tell a story as Chet. But no complaint from us about Chet…his asides are as good as the main story

  12. Melanie
    7:38 am on April 10th, 2010

    Thanks Dawson!

    I don't know about the son??? Same tooth chipped?? Any other scifi readers out there?

    Rio, don't you watch Fringe?

    Bess has been outside in this gorgeous weather. Really gorgeous for the Pack today because the sun is out and it's 46 degrees and breezy. Tad chilly for us humans.

    She was watching ACG&S with us the other night and there was a hunting hound pack on. She wanted to join in. Bit scary for the computer.

    Stover thinks I'm funny!? That is a compliment right? Although I have been utterly serious about what I've been saying?

    And how is Rosie Dog? Is she wading in the creek yet..or is it still a river?

  14. B. Stover
    8:35 am on April 10th, 2010

    Yes B. Stover: I have had to capitulate once again to the Commander, the more pugnacious one, due obviously, to being pure pug body and soul, whereas I only have a pug nose. So. Detroit Tigers against the Colorado Rockies in the Series.

    Those Tigers will have to go over the Twins to get there Yppiz!

    ~~Maybe Admin. is taking a little annoyed that PA 'got the Baseball right' in The Fan because Admin got the Baseball wrong in his/her World Series Predictions. S/he had the Red Sox and the Twins in the World Series, ahem, which can't happen 'cause they are both American League. And because s/he got caught out in it and had to revise his/her World Series pick. Publicly in Chet's blog. teehee

    Dawson, the river is STILL too high for Rosie, though we also have a red flag for forest fires.

    The underbrush and dead leaves are very dry, even though we had a lot of rain. As I remember it (though Rio knows that isn't my strong point) the air and sun are actually sucking up the moisture from the underbrush and since there are no leaves out yet there is no shade to keep the moisture in. Whew . .

    Well, this was a nice break. Now back to work. Now I'm taking pictures of some illustrations from oldest son Rob. Have to send jpegs off of them.

    Of course, I can't find one of the illustrations that has to go. Bummer.

    Someday I hope my children will take all their STUFF out of the house and move it to where they are. Maybe? Hopefully? Does any one know if they actually move out?

    I can't talk, I still live here with my parents!!

    When we were in our 30's our Mom started mailing stuff to us. It was funny. One of the son's in law was really annoyed at having to find places to store stuff.

    Dawson: If I remember correctly, the Tigers won in 1984 ("The Roar of '84.") And that is the extent of my baseball knowledge.

    12:10 pm on April 10th, 2010

    If he said "See this little gap between my teeth…." now that could be genetic. But a chip? That sounds like an accident. I think we need more details. Hey Rio, I hit Submit on the first try!

    Hey everyone. Great day here in Maryland; went on a five mile hike with my mom and dad along the C&O Canal (it was actually ten miles for me cause I have four feet, not two, as I always tell them). Life just doesn't get any better than that. And Rio, baseball talk is just fine for me, so go for it. In fact, my dad keeps trying to convince my mom that baseball is actually a metaphor for life. Something about batting averages and the infield fly rule. If he says so, it must be true, although I haven't a clue what a metaphor is. Also, if you don't mind, I would like to adopt the Rockies as my team and root for them too; otherwise I'm just stuck with the Washington Nationals, which isn't a whole lot to root for.

    Special note to Wolfie and Sam. I had a post on Thursday (5:00 PM) for you regarding The Art of Racing in the Rain and another good author named David Rosenfelt that you might have missed because it got moderated for a long time before it got posted (I think it may have been because Spence and Admin may have hit the bars after that library gig on Thursday). If any event, if you didn't see it, check it out. Roger, ten four and all that good sign off stuff — Wookie.

    Chet, there must be a time warp – doo doo doo doo – I hear the music. Col. Bob is looking at himself from years ago.

  30. B. Stover
    12:57 pm on April 10th, 2010

    None of you will like this so you can just chalk it up to my perverse perspective. Since "metaphor" has come up: Any sport is a substitute for war. It goes back to the Middle Ages when nobles held tournaments during war-less periods to keep their knights occupied and, thus, controlled. Okay….go back to your baseball.

  31. Siberian Husky
    1:33 pm on April 10th, 2010

    I want to move to the Yukon. Dawson has got me going again.

    I have read The Art of Racing in the Rain and David Rosenfelt's books. Enjoyed them all very much while waiting on Chet's books to come out. Chet is my most, all time, very favorite dog. He's real.

    Good deal Wookie, I am also rooting for the Rockies. They are the closest major league team to me, but they don't get much media coverage here. Rio will have to keep us informed.

    Now, I am really looking forward to reading The Fan. I'm still saving it.

    Bless Chet's little canine heart-we have more of the Col. Bob story today. None of my or Chet's teeth are chipped–good thing. You humans can't do much with your teeth. They are, shall we say, puny.

    Nice!… we just got home from visiting those out-of –towners…gasp!… thank goodness they will be leaving tomorrow morning…snort!… So we turn on the Masters just in time to see Tiger miss an incredibly easy put… HEH!… That pretty much made my day!…

    Stover!… That metaphor made a lot of sense back in the days…snort!… but does it also apply to the Olympic sports?….hmmmm…those were started by the Greeks I believe….grunt!

  33. Sam
    1:36 pm on April 10th, 2010

    Wooks – Thank you for pointing out that post. Mom will be reading one of those. We would have missed that!

  34. B. Stover
    2:10 pm on April 10th, 2010

    The ancient Greek Olympic games were used to demonstrate political dominance among city-states. According to one myth, when the games stopped being held there was constant war so they were started again to bring peace back.

  35. Rio - The Evil Pug
    2:24 pm on April 10th, 2010

    Aaaah!… So it all ties together…. Snort!… Very interesting Stover. This may explain why sports are so deeply ingrained in our souls… grunt! … Or maybe just mine…. Heh!

  36. Rio - The Evil Pug
    2:31 pm on April 10th, 2010

    Wookie!… Of course you are very welcome to become an honorary Rockies Fan!… snort!… I will be very proud to have you by my side rooting for the team this season!… grunt!… They play again in about 30 minutes or so….heh!

    Ray!… Does anyone have any other theories about why Ray is following his dad and carrying around all this hate for Col Bob?… snort!… There is the obvious explanation of course, but is that really what Spence would be getting at?…. grunt!… I believe there is more to it… wheeze!… but, an idea just hasn’t come to me yet!

  37. Barb & Maggie
    2:39 pm on April 10th, 2010

    OK, here is a personal beef of mine and mom's. A "sport" should have equally trained, equally equipped teams who have the same goals. And everyone should be there voluntarily. So why is hunting called a sport? Only one side is going to win, and one side is going to lose, big time. Question of the day!

  38. Sam
    3:11 pm on April 10th, 2010

    MagPie – I'm with you on this. It doesn't seem like a fun thing to do, to go out and shoot animals.

  39. Rio - The Evil Pug
    3:45 pm on April 10th, 2010

    Hunting!… Well it’s definitely not a sport on our list here…snort! … We definitely do not admire that behavior…. Wheeze!… I know my friends would not be caught dead with a gun! ….sniff!… As long as us guys don’t ever become the hunted… grunt!… Then things could get a bit touchy around here if that happened….snarl!… They like me a lot even if they complain about my habits, smells and noises… heh!… I can tell sometimes.

    I must be the oldest one in this select group because when I saw the title I though of…well, Bob and Ray.

    Did no one else think this???

    No one?


    Here is a link for some easy listening of Bob and Ray.
    They like Baseball too, but I didn't find any baseball videos.

    Okay!… Well, my dear MagPie, hunting isn’t spiking any discussion… snort!… The theory of Col.Bob’s son and his hatred of his father isn’t bringing forth any comments… wheeze!… I’m sort of at a lose… But, I do have my Rockies!…heh!.. This is going to be good … They are fighting back ( war-like Stover ). Wookie after last nights romp this is going to be something!…eeeeeeee!

    Please…All, Jump over the baseball and go beyond it!… snort!… Lots to be discussed… don’t let me and Wookie bog you down… BEER HERE please!.. (Molly will like that – where is she anyway?)

    But!… It seems Alice is “a foot”…heh!… Maybe baseball is waking up her War-Like nature… wheeze!

    Mom has been watching all the videos of border collies that are on Chet's site today. I'm not watching. I could get a complex. There is a video of a border collie putting clothes in a washing machine. Not my job.

  46. Siberian Husky
    4:40 pm on April 10th, 2010

    what are we suppose to be discussing?

    I think hunting should be left to the wolves.

    This is a close game so far, Rio

  47. Rio - The Evil Pug
    4:51 pm on April 10th, 2010

    4-3 so far snowdog!

    Heh!.. “a foot”… reminds me!… We did get to see some of the movie, ‘Sherlock Holmes’, today…. Snort!… Not the Sherlock I am familiar with, but a very interesting style portraying him and Watson… Action Packed Sherlock for sure!…wheeze!… not what the author initially imagined I suspect…gasp!… I actually only got to see about half of the movie – so I am left wanting to know what happens… Netflixs!… will deliver that answer soon!

    Rio. Thanks for letting join the Rockies cheering section. I'll root hard, I promise. And congratulations on yesterday's win at the home opener — seven to zippy (sorry, Dawson, I couldn't resist) was quite impressive, although looks like tonight's game is a bit of a nail-biter. In any event, after yesterday's game you must have been so happy it would have been like walking on sunshine (do I feel a song coming on? –hmmm). Wookie

    I'm walking on sunshine , wooah

    I'm walking on sunshine, woooah

    I'm walking on sunshine, woooah

    and don't it feel good!!

  50. Wookie of Chevy Chas
    4:56 pm on April 10th, 2010

    Stover. I checked with my dad further on this metaphor stuff. He said he really didn't mean it that profoundly (or maybe more profoundly — it all depends). The reason he sees baseball as a metaphor for life, is that when things are not going well, you need to remember that being a .400 batter in baseball is absolutely terrific even though you get on base less times than you don't, and that can apply to life experiences as well. As to the infield fly rule, that stands for the principle that you need to treat others fairly and equitably and not try to take advantage of them. He says there was even a great law review article written once called "The Common Law Origins of the In-field Fly Rule," but that may be getting a bit much for this blog. In any event, I need to go root for the Rockies now. Wookie

    Whew, don't have time to catch up on the blog, just got back from "Any Thing Goes" high school musical.

    Very good. Great tap dancing. Great singing.

    Went up to "Billy" and shook his hand. Said you don't know me, but I had to shake the hand of the person who will be the last on the school stage who shared it with my son. Told him he did a great job. He asked what play and I said "Oliver" and that my son had been Fagan. Of course, this guy is now a Senior and when he was in Oliver he was one of Fagan's 9 year old boys! So youngest acting son is now an "old guy." There will be lots of teasing tomorrow.

    I did mention the 30 years old and mailing stuff, Abbie's staff. Zoë thought it was a great idea! 4 1/2 more years. Hopefully by then he'll have his own apartment.

    Guess where my mom is RIGHT NOW??????


    Yes, indeedy. She has a BOLO for econobox drivers with a chipped front tooth. So far, no luck, but she did drive by Merle Haggard's road.

    She thinks that CB had a one night stand, begat a son, unbeknowst to him. Trampy mom told the son lies about his father, son believed the lies, beleived the lies, and is now seeking retribution. Or maybe he's just looking for Merle Haggard's dentist.

    Wow, great game, guys!!! I'm sorry you lost. Remember, the season is still young.

    Mom and Dad are going to St George to visit my boys, and I have to stay here and babysit Teddy, my sweet old,deaf, smiley buddy.

    It isn't fair. But on the plus side, mom put a big bag of Chicken Jerky on the counter for the dog sitter. I love treat!!!

    Y'all go to bed too early,

    Night ya'll


    Woof dog

    My goodness Rio are we going to have to go through this all summer? I am worn out already.
    On the other hand one of the best games I have been to in a long time was a 14 inning one that ended after 12:00 at the Dome last year. I wonder if I can get a hot dog and some pop corn or is it too late?

    On to the lucky 13th. I don’t know if I am allowed up this late. Alice killed the mouse by dropping it on the floor and Staff had to get a new battery for it. Luckily it came back to life. Bad Alice Johnson!
