Brando The Cat: From A Fistful Of Collars (Sneak Peek)

We drove deeper into the desert, Bernie at the wheel, Thad riding shotgun with Brando on his lap, me still in back. After not too long, Bernie turned off the blacktop and followed a dirt track up toward some big red rocks, a track that petered out before we got there. Bernie stopped the car.

“What’s going on?” Thad said.

“Want to see something interesting?” Bernie said.

“Like what?” Thad checked his watch.

“Let’s make it a surprise.”

“I hate surprises.”

Bernie smiled, one of those smiles of his that’s just for himself—and me, of course, goes without saying—and we all piled out of the car, me hitting the ground first. We walked up toward the red rocks, me in the lead, then Bernie, Thad, and Brando, actually moving under his own power. Once—this was back on our trip to San Diego—Bernie said that the fog came in on little cat feet, a remark that I’d never been able to forget no matter how hard I’d tried, and that was how Brando moved along, like he was made of cloud, weighing nothing, although in fact he looked pudgy to me.

– From A Fistful of Collars, coming Tuesday from Atria Books.

Welcome new friends: Sasha, Hunter.

Tomorrow at 3PM – Spencer Quinn talks and signs the first available copies of A Fistful of Collars in the whole universe (and all the other universes if it turns out they exist) at Titcomb’s Bookshop in Sandwich, Mass.

    Most of our Kats did walk like fog. Then came Cricket.

    Landed like a lead balloon and when he walked through the house, you could not only hear him but feel the vibrations in the floor.

    He was a GREAT purrer though.

    Good morning Melanie and all.

    Oh boy!
    I love the “Bernie smiled…” sentence. Absolutely love it!

    Top o the morning to Melanie and B.Stover.

    Melanie your Cricket reminds me of the Cricket from Down Under. Hey Cricket and Liz. Hope you’re feeling tip top.

    Just finished last night’s comments. Mirrors.

    The Pack is not bothered by mirrors. They just think it’s one of the others.

    Good morning all
    It was before our time but Mama had a Kat whose name started out to be Oreo. But he ended up just being called “Thud” for the sound he made when he jumped off anything. The vet explained that his ankle bones were malformed or backwards or something.
    He too was a great purrer.

    Mama is sputtering all over the place. The plan was that they would spend the weekend packing and get on the road first thing Monday. But last night Dad mentioned that he had offered to work both today and tomorrow as they were “shorthanded”. Sheesh – cant anyone else in that place EVER do the extra days. Dad is just a soft touch. So Mama gets to spend the whole weekend packing by herself

    But the big news is there are severe and dangerous thunderstorms headed for this area later today. Awww geee. Maybe the silly concert will get rained out (paws crossed)

    10:48 am on September 8th, 2012

    T&G, we have those thunderstorms now. They should be gone by 2 pm and on their way to you. There were a lot of benefit Walks that had to be canceled this morning.

    Greetings All!

    Mirrors! UGH! I hate mirrors, and spend very little time looking into them.

    ATLAS SHRUGGED was never shown here in Wstchester, although the Prof and I did see the trailer when we saw the movie 2016. I think a lot of it has to do with politics and Miss Rand’s view of the world. I have not read the book….I’m scared because it is way honkin’ big, and I need a telescope to read the print, but I have read THE FOUNTAINHEAD. (twice)

    Rats! This here IPad can be frustrating!

    Annabelle, I appreciate any and all efforts you make at trying to get my VBFF to pose for a picture , so that Your Lady can snap a few shots! She’s a crazy kid, that one, which is why I love her!

    Hopefully, GLAD will accept my commission .

    …”the fog came in on little kat feet”…we love that expression!
    T&G: Severe & dangerous thunderstorms is too big a price to pay we say. Who knows…maybe the concert will be fun…or not.
    Rose: Mom read Atlas Shrugged 3 times! The movie, Part I is on Amazon Prime. We saw it on DVD when it first came out and liked it.
    Two more days!!!

    We here at the Mr.Staff house can’t wait to read about Brando. And about Chet and Bernie too. I wonder if Brando will ever be in another C&B book. (((sigh))) Probably not.

    More mirrors….Beau, I think you are a cutie!

    Wolfie: the Prof and I enjoyed the film very much. It is based on the book of the same name, written by D’nesh D’souza. (Forgive me, because I am absolutely sure I did not spell his name correctly). It was extremely interesting, and frightening how Mr. D’souza was able to link back Obama’s extreme and radical leftist policies to his father, the countries that he grew up in (Kenya, Indonesia) and how Barack felt about the colonialism of those countries. This was all based on Obama’s book Memories of My Father. (Hope I got the title right). Both he , his mother, and father were linked to extreme radical underground groups.

    Oh, and you know his brother and sister that were at the DNC? They both cleaned up quite nicely for the event. Well, his brother lives in a hut in Kenya, and when his mother died, his sister called him to ask him to come, he refused. So much for loving your mom.

    Anyway, Prof and I have our own political opinions, but I would recommend that this film be seen before anyone votes, and shown be shown in schools and colleges, before students get indoctrinated to only radical leftist ideas.

    Sorry for standing on the soapbox….

    I am going to remind everyone that early on in the blog we realized that if we talked about our political views we would descend into one of those blogs that doesn’t get along. We have so many things we do agree on that it would be a shame to focus on the things that divide us.

    Please, political views can be shared off the blog.

    Costume!…Whew!…I think someone finally finished all those things she didn’t do last weekend on her costume for the big Murder Mystery Party we are going to in about an hour….heh!…The pants, the shoes, the other part of the shirt. She found something to hang over her belt to hook her pouch full of gold coins on and how to attach the sword will have to be figured out after everything else is on…heh!…I’m not wearing anything by the way…sniff!

    Well, we do feel sorry for the organizers of the concert, and for the entertainers if the storms come. It is a fund raiser for Canines for Wounded Vets, which is the local VFW’s cause for this year.
    We already paid for our (most expensive, reserved seat) tickets, so if we can’t go, it won’t lessen the incoming money. We are sure that there will be a lot of people who will really enjoy the concert – more power to them. Its just that rowdy beer drinking crowds with overly loud music, sitting in folding chairs in the rain for 5 hours is NOT the way we would choose to spend a Saturday evening.
    We would rather watch a Rockies game. There! Does that tell you anything about our level of desperation?

    I told my two legged I was going to share my political views. She said, “Don’t you dare.” I am ignoring her. My political views are very simple: I vote pug. For everything. I even have a fancy pin that says as much. The pin used to be worded like this:

    For everything!

    Lefty got a hold of it and now it just says:


    I wear it anyways.

    Oops! My two legged is coming. If she asks. I was trying to get Rio a copy of Spence’s next, next book.

    Well, since we anointed B.Stover as Ruler and that’s for life, I guess I will vote for Put for Everything Else. Unless the Pack asks. Then I voted for Patsy.

    Under a tornado watch. I would imagine that OleyHowlers, Wose and MollyPop’s Mom are also.

    Melanie: Try as we may, try as we might, we can never remember the difference between “watch” and “warning”. I mean…should we be on the watch for it vs being warned about the potentially of it coming?
    Stay safe everyone!

  32. B.Stover

    Bear: A tornado watch means that there is a possibility of one developing. A tornado warning means that one has been sighted.

    Hey Everybody!
    We have been really really busy around here. But now we are all indoors, except for Pop who is on a food-shopping trip. Mom says Leslie is coming here. We love Leslie. She is our good friend Cherokee’s mom and Kat’s godmom.

    Oh, Mom just told us that it is not that Leslie. She said the Leslie coming here is a bad Leslie. Wonder why Pop is getting food for her then.

    Thanks, Staff. 🙂

    One word of caution is to never blindly believe that one’s story (book or movie) is
    “based” on a book. Read the darn book yourself.

    Please accept my sincerest apology.

    I loved the stories about Thud and Cricket this morning. A Catty Librarian’s cat, Elliot, is does not walk on foggy little kitten toes.
    C.Harris: Brrr! Was that the first frost of the year?
    Extremely windy here. I’m using the wind to help me rake leaves into the neighbor’s yard.

    Rose: No matter what our beliefs we are all friends. You certainly did not offend anyone here. In our family we agree that sometimes we don’t see eye to eye and that’s the end of it. It would be a very boring world if we all held the same opinions.
    CHobbit: 30 degrees is your nighttime/early morning temperature right? Please tell me it gets up into the 40s during the day.

    Dawson…no, it has frosted before but this one was a hard frost. No more flowers. I had to find my windshield scraper before heading out for errands. Fortunately, I had gone through my tub of gloves & mittens and pulled a few out for my car. Once winter hits I carry a big bag of cold-weather gear at all times with enough to share as needed. I am always prepared to be stuck somewhere on the road or off the road. My emergency rations are a couple of candy bars 🙂

  48. Gus & BooBear
    6:01 pm on September 8th, 2012

    We just posted a long post and it went to the ethernet. Didn’t say it was in moderation and when we hit submit again, it says we already said that.

    C.Hobbit, do you find that you get colder now that you have lost all the weight? Mom says that she is always warm because of her few extra pounds of fluffage (lol!)

  49. Staff
    6:05 pm on September 8th, 2012

    Dear Rose,
    This was discussed a long time before you started posting and so there was no way for you to know. We all have the right to our beliefs. Early on we did have political discussions on the blog and we realized that we are all over the spectrum politically. So we try to leave that outside and we concentrate on the things that bring us together.

    I am with Macy on the endless campaigning. I am terrifically bored with it too.

    I treasure you and every member of this ‘literary community’ and love the way we come together and help each other. I hope we all continue doing so. We are all really special.

  50. Gus & BooBear
    6:06 pm on September 8th, 2012

    Wose, we were not offended at all by your post. We found it very interesting which shows which way our political thinking is. But, like Staff said, we do try not to get into political discussions here to keep the peace. But Wolfie did ask, and you merely answered. So no one is upset. You are such a caring and generous person and not one of your friends here would get mad at you!!

  51. Melanie
    6:09 pm on September 8th, 2012

    Hey Gus & BooBear, same thing happened to me.

    Had a tornado southwest of us, but it has now dissipated. Thank Dog. Still have severe thunderstorms warning. Keeping an eye on the radar.

    I think the weather has affected Dan and the Pack. I know it has with me. Dan slept most of the day and is now going to bed. The Pack has slept, getting up only to bark and large trucks. I have been sleep walking. snicker.

    Tomorrow the weather is supposed to be beautiful. I will be working in the garden. Harvesting some onions (thanks you Barb and MagPie), and cutting the squash plants that have given up the ghost. The tomatoes are still doing fine. As is my giant pumpkin.

  52. B.Stover
    6:14 pm on September 8th, 2012

    Well, everybody decided to stay home tonight and miss the concert. The weather forecast is way scary, what with tornados and severe thunderstorms. The sky is getting blacker by the minute and everyone is getting jumpy. We do want to sat tho that Callie recently got a Thunder Shirt which she has been wearing most of the day. And she is MUCH calmer than she normally is with a low pressure system and a storm in the air.

  58. Melanie
    7:04 pm on September 8th, 2012

    Dawson, it is still in the tree, but I had to put a board under it to help hold it up. I’ll try to take a picture of it tomorrow.

    I HAVE SO GOT TO GET TO ALASKA! Northern Lights . . . Can’t remember if I’ve written this before . .

    On Dan and Zoë’s frist date in Chicago they were walking by the Lake and they saw the Northern Lights. That is when Dan knew he was going to marry Zoe. She was 17. (She started college at 16)

    Snowbella? Do youse guys howl at the Lights?
    Can you feel them? Do they make a sound?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

I am not looking forward to being “plunged into darkness” when I go back home in the middle of October. My full spectrum lights will be needed this winter. C.Harris or Snowbella may be able to tell us how fast the daylight is dwindling.

    Ok, we are not imagining it. Mom’s rant was at the very end of Sept 7, which spilled over into Sept 8, which now that I think about it is today, so I guess it was yesterday. Owww, I think I sprained my brain. Oh well, pizza is here!!

    B.Stover, a Thundershirt is worn by a dog that holds the dog comfortably and a little bit tight. This calms them down. Rose (four legged not two legged) has one that she wears when she gets hyper. It’s like it keeps her centered.

    Here’s a picture of one. I have one with Rose, but heaven knows where it is.

    We are very fortunate to have friends like Mick and Jodi, the people not the pups. Earlier this week, AJ’s vehicle broke down while he was in town. Mick and Jodi towed him back to their house and I drove in to bring him home. Mick, person not pup, found and installed a new alternator. We paid him for the part, but he wouldn’t take any payment for his time. Now, Mick is out here helping AJ run electricity to Rio’s cabin. Will he accept payment? Nope, but we did buy him a pack of his favorite beer. Burp!

    Rio: I thought you were dead! I’m glad you weren’t the killer.
    Or the victim.
    Snowbella: Hip hip hooray for Mick and Jodi!
    My eyelids are getting very heavy.

    My family watched The Hunger Games movie and thought it was well done – for a movie. Time is limited and the movie was 2 hours and 20 minutes. So like usual, we like to read the book first.

    I’m with Masquers, I can’t find hide nor hair of the glue stick rant? Is there a blog bug among us?

    Rio: I am so glad your friend had her camera ready and shared the photos. We saw a pug at the hardware store today, but Tenzing and I didn’t get a chance to pet him.

    Our renter is moved in and has her team set up in the kennel we established for her dogs. Between the two teams, we have 72 dogs on our property.

    I am heading up to CHH’s neck of the woods tomorrow for work.

    trend of US jobs outsourced to companies in developing countries.

    Expert packers and movers have well trained and expert workers for the
    packing and shifting of customers belongings. A move is not easy; it is hard for the entire family as there
    are many new things to adjust to, many things to give up and of course plenty of details
    to take care of. Another point to be considered here is that the local businesses
    know the target customers better than multi national companies, as they
    have their roots here in this county of Florida and thereby

    better. As soon as you’ve looked at all the principals, it’s time to have a trip to the self-storage
