Book News

A recent Amazon reviewer of Of Mutts and Men wrote: “I could read 500 Chet the Dog books and still want more.” 500 is possibly not in the cards, but how about two (2!) more Chet and Bernie novels in 2021? The first – and I might as well reveal the title, since the book is already available for preorder – is Tender Is The Bite, coming June 1. The second – no title yet – is a holiday/Christmas novel, coming some time in the fall of 2021. More to come on both.

To all of you out there who enjoy C&B: I’m very grateful for your support.

    Hobbit: Thanks for the Bible cliff notes a couple of days ago. What kind of intel do you have on a guy named Moses? He seems to be part of a sub-plot, but we haven paid close enough attention.

    Thank dog for this joyful news!

    Looking at the reports from the burning West, I’ve never been more grateful for our cool, soggy summer.

    Stay safe everyone.

    THIEVES: RE MOSES. Here is a Cliff Notes Recap:

    Moses: Chosen Prophet of the Lord and author of the Torah: the first 5 books of the Hebrew Bible. (Thieves, pay attention)

    In Egypt: A river; a baby (psst…he is Moses).
    Found, rescued and raised by Pharaoh’s daughter. YAY!
    God commands Exodus by Israelites. Moses is to lead them.
    Ten Plagues on Pharaoh’s people. OW! (see separate Cliff Notes)
    Pharaoh lets them leave — but later chases them.
    At the Red Sea: A miracle! Israelites cross, Egyptians drown.
    Moses climbs mountain. God gives Moses the 10 Commandments (see separate Cliff Notes)
    Moses climbs down mountain. Finds Israelites worshiping Golden Calf. GASP!
    God mad!!! Moses mad!!!
    Breaks tablets of 10 Commandments. Punish Israelites.
    Moses makes new tablets. Israelites arrive at border of Canaan.
    Israelites afraid— but not Moses! Israelites want to return to Egypt. BOO!
    Israelites rebel against God and Moses. A bad decision!
    God mad!!! Moses mad!!!
    Payback: Israelites forced to wonder lost for 40 years. Only one thing to eat: manna.
    Moses leads them to the banks of the Jordan River.
    At last they have arrived. {{{SIGH}}}
    Moses climbs mountain to view promised land. Dies on top, 120 years old.
    The children of Israelites inherit the Promised Land

    [my review: such a good read (sorry B. Stover) with a sad/happy ending]

    HOH: Editing is the key to success. I think OFA even said to get rid of all unnecessary words.

    Thieves: I know you will ask about manna. Think of it as an endless supply of Slim Jims replenished daily.

    Hobbit: Wheeze! Youse lost us at “Thieves, pay attention,” but we regained interest at the mention of a golden calf. So therefore, we are certain the endless supply of Slim Jim manna comes from said cow.

    Genesis chapter 1, verse 1 is a beast to get through in bible study.

    Beau: Our last comment isn’t directed at you as a teacher, but we think if OFA wrote the beginning it would be much more enjoyable.

    Thieves: I can see why Beau is exasperated with youse. I had already given you the Cliff Notes version of Genesis chapter 1, verses 1-31. 31 verses reduced to 7 words. [God. There is nothing. There is everything.]
    It is admirable that Beau never gives up teaching truly his most recalcitrant students. A true teacher!

    Hobbit: Who’s to say we aren’t exasperated with him. The dedication on that guy really makes it hard to do our job.
