Chet And Bernie In Action (More): From A Cat Was Involved

And meanwhile, up above me, the other dude was circling around Bernie real quick and crablike, throwing punches and landing every one—pop pop pop. Oh, no. Bernie wasn’t a fighter? What a disappointment! The dude must have realized that. He smiled—what nice teeth he had, big for a human—wound up and swung a from-the-heels roundhouse directly at Bernie’s head. That was when Bernie moved, so fast and smooth it was hard to see: he ducked under the dude’s fist, stepped in and belted him bang on the point of his chin. There was a bonecracking thud and the dude’s eyes rolled right up. He keeled over and lay still. Some of those big beautiful teeth fluttered out.

At the same time, my guy was making whimpering noises I didn’t like. I shook my head a bit, sinking my teeth in deeper. Bernie knelt beside me. “Chet? That should do it.”

    Good morning! We just love it when Bernie beats up a perp!

    I love it when Chet grabs a perp by the pant leg. Of course, that’s not what is involved in this scene. (ACWI is 99 cents–in case people read the above as 99 dollars. Why isn’t there a “cent” symbol on my keyboard?)

    Good morning all.

    B.Stover: Glad you were able to see the promo!
    Beau: You need a better dismount.
    Tenzing: Please do not teach the climbing of ladders to the Pack.
    Staff: Emily the Kat sounds great. We had a Kat that liked to climb the chimney. Then cry all night on the roof and wait for Dan to climb out of the second story window onto the roof and then she’d back away from him.

    Off to pick up Jesse. Social Worker is coming today. I’ll be back at some point.

    Great admiration here for Tenzing. That ladder climb was quite the accomplishment.
    On the other hand…those kats are just crazy!

    Yay for more of ACWI and a new day.

    Well, as usual, Mom’s going to run errands before work, so I’m outta here! Hopefully, I’ll be back sometime before midnight!

    Sentence!…One of my favorite sentences from the whole story is, “Some of those big beautiful teeth fluttered out.”…snort!…Fluttered out! I love it…chorkel!…Makes me almost laugh out loud everytime I read it…heh!

    I hope Macy’s mom has a great first day at work!

  17. Siber-H
    1:46 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Well, then, We will just have our own blog party.

    Hi Rebecca! Take care of the cold. I am glad you are staying home today.

    Rebecca, I hope you are under the quilt, and that Tenzing is making a good pillow.

    2:38 pm on August 27th, 2012

    I’ve been working on a project which involved taking pictures and then figuring out how to insert them into a Word document. Whew….I need a break.

  24. Rose
    2:44 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Sammie, please let us know how MollyPop’s Mom is doing.

  25. Melanie
    2:50 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Okay, whew . . Back for a minute. The social worker visit went well. It was long but good. Had lunch, worked on YSAS’s stuff and now the people with the O2, shower bench and lift chair are here.


  26. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:09 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Melanie!…I have a question. If we want to contribute to Clarksons Production but do not want to do it over the internet, can Beau send all his treat money to you directly?….snort!

  27. Melanie
    3:33 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Beau’s treat money? Does Beau know about this???? And yes, he may.

    Dan now has a leather lift chair. That sucker can take him right up to a standing position! Learned about the O2. Shower bench is coming tomorrow.

    YSAS sent the video to his agent. SHE LOVED IT! Maybe she’ll send him in for the correct roles now.

    Molly’s Mom had her second cataract surgery and it went great. I didn’t get my egg until Mommy brought her back with an egg mcmuffin that got put on a gluten free roll. Wose, it’s nice you’re asking bout Molly’s Mom, but what about me? Didn’t anyone care about whether I got my egg?

  29. BearSpiritDog
    4:12 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Dawson: Your package is in St.Paul…should reach you by tomorrow…Heh.

    Sammie: Ditto to what Wose said.

    Melanie and SnowBella: Feel better

    5:14 pm on August 27th, 2012

    From the Royals’ Mum and Da,
    I doubt that I will be on the blog tonight. I would appreciate it if you would let folks know that we are home safe and sound, that we had a good show, and that I will be back when I can communicate in a comprehensible fashion.

    They had to spend 30 minutes just playing Tupper and Gilly when they got home!

  31. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:21 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Melanie!…What kind of production costs are Clarkson and his pals facing with this project?….snort!…I’m trying to get a feel for how much of Beau’s treatie money I should steal borrow….grunt!

  32. Wose
    5:38 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Sammie, I hope you can forgive me. I do care when you get your egg on your kibble, it makes me happy, because it makes you happy.

  33. Princess Sam
    5:42 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Aw Wose, can I come live with you?

  34. Masquers
    6:05 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Sammie: Of course we care! Happy to hear the surgery went well and Aunt Mollys Mom is home (at your house). Take good care of her.
    Howlers: Us too. Can’t wait to hear about Barb & Maggie’s new house. Maybe she will be able to check in this evening.

  35. B.Stover
    6:14 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Sam: Good news about Mollypop’s Mom and I’m glad that you got your egg.

  36. Wose
    6:17 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Sammie, you are always welcome at my house!

  37. OleyHowlers
    6:24 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Sam, thanks for letting us know about Aunt MolysMom. And thanks for the sacrifices you are making for her. We hope she is back to making your egg kibble soon.

  38. Melanie
    6:28 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Sam, it’s too bad you didn’t get a request in to Barb and MagPie for one of the hens. Then every morning you could have a fresh egg!

    MollyPop’s Mom, have you noticed a difference with the first eye? How long does it take to be able to see with the other?

    Riö, I have kept my paws off this production (except for the website and the youtube). So I have no idea what they are looking for. I do know it is expensive to do.

    Torn!…Now we are torn. Do we finish reading The Charming Mr. Abrahams very first book or do we stop and start reading Spencer’s very latest book?….wheeze!…Its a wonderful dilema for sure!…snorkel!

    7:57 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Mom here, survived the first day…thought about quitting about half way through…decided to go back tomorrow…so..tired..I know the chaos will lessen. It has to. We have 30 kids in a room designed for 22 and not enough activities for everyone. I was under the impression that the director had things sorted out. She does not. I spent too many years in the schools not to know that you cannot let 6 and 7 year olds figure out what to do for themselves. Especially not 30 of them. My group is the first graders, and I only have 12, but we have to share the room with 18 second graders. They were supposed to have some gym time, but no one ever called us…repeat to self, IT WILL GET BETTER. Oh and the guy in charge of the second graders is 20 and has never worked with kids AT ALL. itwillgetbetter, itwillgetbetter, itwillgetbetter…

  46. B.Stover
    8:02 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Macy’s mom: You will get them sorted out. It sounds like they really need you.

    I’m glad the book came Rio.

  47. OleyHowlers
    8:14 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Twirling for Rio.
    Macy, we agree with Bee.

    Plunderers, we are in need of prayers and positive thoughts here. Shiek had a bad day. Not quite as bad as last Monday, but has not eaten and very lethargic. We gave him Bantomine this morning, and it seemed to help. But when Pop brought him in after work, he laid right down. He was still down when Mom got home shortly after. She was in there talking and petting, and he still didn’t get up. Mom talked to the v e t this evening, and he suggested another dose of Bantomine. So when she went up to the barn, he was lying very still, flat out. Mom and Pop couldn’t get him up! Finally after she almost called for the v e t, he got up and she gave him the med. He seems a little better now, but we aren’t sure. This is bizarre, since he has been excellent all week, and Mom had that great ride on him. But here is the key we think: both last night, and last Sunday, we gave him carrots. We think he can’t chew them anymore and swallowed too large a piece. Poor guy is never getting another carrot.

  48. SnowBella
    8:30 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Howlers: Done. Please tuck the quilt around your mom and over Shiek’s back.

    Macy: I tell new employees the the first week, especially the first day, isn’t always the best. You don’t know anyone, don’t know the routine, and you will wonder what you’re doing. I then tell them that, it does indeed get better. Reflect on the parts of your day that you did enjoy or did well. Itwillgetbetter, itwillgetbetter, itwillgetbetter.

  49. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:31 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Decision!…We decided not to read one word tonight…sniff!…We may even wait till the weekend, if someone can last that long. We will continue to read The Fury Of Rachel Monette…snort!…This book was written in 1979 – everyone work out how old you were and what you were doing at the time The Charming Mr. Abrahams published his first book…heh!

    Sheik!…Even though I’m not sround horses unless we go out to the farm where her friend lives, I do hope Sheik recovers from those nasty carrots…grunt!…Beau loves those things….gah!

  50. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:41 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Dip!…Wow, my friend is cooking her Hot Spicey Chili Cheese Dip to take to the busy-damned-place tomorrow…sneeze!…Because everyone will be working their @sses off all day and maybe night they were told to bring food in…grunt!…That place has some nerve, let me tell you!…grump!….Her cheesey dip is awesome and people begged her to bring it…sniff!

    Game!!! ….ON! The Dodgers…wooo!hoooo!

  52. Melanie
    8:50 pm on August 27th, 2012

    OleyHowlers, Our quilt can stretch over everyone who needs it and still get tucked in. Sometimes I think it is like my bedcovers (when I was a child) and used it for a hideaway and sometimes it’s like a beautiful meadow to play in and still be protected. May Shiek continue to feel better.

    Macy, First day of school is always (insert word here). You will prevail!

    Riö, congratulation! What a decision . . .

    Golinka called, talking and yawning. They are very glad to be home and going to bed. She will “see” you all tomorrow. She did say her next big trip is VACATION.

    I’m outta here. Acupuncture tomorrow morning!

  54. SnowBella
    8:53 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Good night, Melanie.

    I hope Golinka had several bare shelves at the end of the reely long shew.

    Rio: I’m craving your friend’s dip and I’ve never tasted it.

  55. Melanie
    8:55 pm on August 27th, 2012

    One more thing. i was giving Zoë a hug tonight and opened my eyes to find myself nose to “nose” with a daddy long legs spider. I caught it carefully in my hand and asked Zoë if this was something she wanted on her back.

    She said no, snicker. I let it go outside.

    TTFN really

    O.Howlers: PlunderPrayers are surrounding you and Shiek. Keep the Quilt tucked around him tonight. It has to be those darn carrots.

  58. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:03 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Crave!…Rebecca, there is one lady at the busy-damned-place who is as disgruntled if not more, than my friend, who craves this artery clogging dip…heh!…Here are the ingredients as far as I can tell from sitting on the floor looking up.

    1 large package (brick) of processed cheese(!) cut into cubes
    1/2 brick of cheddar cheese cut into cubes
    1 can of Tomatoes with Jalapenos
    1 small can of hot chopped Jalapenos
    1/2 cup of Hot Picante Sauce (or more if you want)
    1 lb of cooked hamburger
    1 tablespoon of dry mustard.

    Throw it all in a crockpot and let it melt/cook together. Enjoy over a plate of taco chips or eat it by the spoonful…heh!burp!

  59. Siber-H

    I’m following the game. The Rockies can beat the Dodgers. They have done it this summer.
    I just read that Tulo could be back in the lineup soon.

    Sheik, feeel better, please. Your family loves you.

    Oh boy, that looks good, Rio. My mom, the dummy, could do that.

    Macy’s Mom, It will get easier and less tiring.

    Pit-Bully!…Well,…gasp!…we had a near miss with a Pit-Bully tonight…sniff!…He was standing in the middle of the street with his kids playing ball and then we came along…grunt!…He stared us down. The kids got him onto the other side of the street. My friend asked if he was a “baby”….wheeze!…I thought for sure a fight would break out, but the kid just said, “Yes, he is eight months old.”….snort!…He was way bigger and broader than Beau and I strapped together side by side….gasp!…We could have been murdered tonight, yes indeed it was a near miss…snuffle!

  63. Staff
    10:35 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Plunder prayers for Shiek. Sure hope he is better in the morning. Thank goodness that Beau and Rio are home safe.

    10:52 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Last night I could not get mom to bed at all, but tonight she didn’t even make it to the news. Aren’t they cute when they are asleep?

    I guess I better get in there and make sure she stays in bed. Niters y’all.

  66. Siber-H
    10:55 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Mom has two friends that have tried to talk her into picking another baseball team to cheer for. Mom just says, no, baseball fans do not do that.
    But, Rio is correct. It is very draining.
    The Rockies are ahead by two runs now. This does not meant they will win the game.

  67. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:59 pm on August 27th, 2012

  69. Siber-H
    11:06 pm on August 27th, 2012

    Rio, We do not like near misses with Pit-bullies. We have seen to much go on at the dog park. My mom, and Molly the Husky’s mom, and the pitbull’s owner had to pull one off of Molly once. It wasn’t easy to do. The pitbull had been at the dog park for awhile and he seemed to be just fine until all of a sudden he attacked Molly. This may not be a nice thing to say, but thankfully it was the pitbull’s owner who received the most bites from the pitbull. His arms were bleeding pretty badly.
    Molly came out of it just fine because my mom and her mom jumped in it to protect her.

  70. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:16 pm on August 27th, 2012

    SiberH!…I know! I don’t like coming close to those guys…sniff!…Beau has no idea about them. He wanted to go meet and greet…grump!…Luckily, the pit-bullie was a youngster and did not feel protective of the street were walking on…grunt!…But he will grow up and those kids better not keep letting him out free without a leash on…grumble!

  71. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:24 pm on August 27th, 2012

    What!?… I’m told we all have to go up to bed really soon because someone here has a very large, long day ahead of her…sniff!…What the hell? The game is not over yet. At least the Rockies are ahead by 4 runs!!…Wooo….I bet we get to listen to the rest of the game on the radio in the bedroom…Yes!….Goodnight!
