“So let’s go!” says Admin. “Now! This very minute!”

“Can’t today,” Spence says.

“Don’t tell me you’re still writing Scents and Sensibility?”

“Aren’t you the one who always says that books don’t write themselves?”

And here are Michelle’s pals Biggie, Ozzie, Milton, Obie, Oscar.

    Maybe there could be a meeting at Chet’s Diner at some point in the future.

    Thank you Michelle for the photo. Cute picture of your buddies, even tho it is photoshopped.

    Good morning, B&M&L and everyone! Chet’s Diner, whooda thunk? We bet they serve the kind of things Chet and Bernie would love (us too). Hey to Michelle’s friends.
    Having a wet, windy Wednesday here. Hope yours is a welcoming Wednesday.

    Admin and Spence are in great form! Wonder what the house specialty is at Chet’s Diner.

    Good morning all.

    HRH B, we found several reviews for Chet’s diner but also a minute and a half You Tube video.We couldn’t get the sound but it looks like standard diner fare (meatloaf, sandwiches, pies). It has been around for 50 years. That’s not bad in the food industry.

    We keep hoping to find time to go to Northborough because that is where the closest Wegman’s store is for us.
    So, when we go, we know where we will have lunch!

    Good morning everyone. Let’s all hope for a good day for everybody.

    There is a cute video of a Briard dog riding a bike over on Chet’s F B page. They are so cute, we want one!

    Briards are a herding dog too.

    Thank you for the info HOH. A restaurant being around for fifty years is a good sign! We have such a restaurant here and when my brother was in town we went there. Their specialty is corned beef and it is delish!

    Tupper’s Mama: Let us know if you have lunch at Chet’s Diner.

    If we don’t get to eat at Chet’s Diner someday, we are going to be in a Very Bad Mood.

    A meat loaf dinner at Chet’s might be a really good choice. With mashed potatoes and green beans.

    Last night we ordered Moo Shu pork with pancakes. First time we ever had that and it was yummy.

    Hello All–
    Chet’s Diner–I think it should figure in a future book, maybe (and Chet could eat there for free).
    Off for my 11-hour day…be well, everyone.

    Wednesday! It’s Not Wet or Wild but a Brry 33 Degrees.

    Bear, it feels like a warm Spring day here on our farm. We want the cold. Mom says be careful what we wish for, because that cold is on the way. We’ll believe it when we feel it.

    Greetings!

    I am wondering if Chet’s Diner serves steak tips….

  18. Herd of Hounds
    11:40 am on November 12th, 2014

    Wose, the menu board is on the You Tube video but it went by so fast we didn’t get to see much of it so cannot tell you :(

    Meat Loaf Dinner!

    11:59 am on November 12th, 2014

    Today’s special at Chet’s Diner- kielbasa and eggs, served with a side of baked beans and cornbread. Bottomless coffee.
    Chet and Bernie would both be in heaven.

    12:08 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Slobber!…Now I am hungry for lunch but no one is making a move to the refrigerator…grunt!…I will do the sit-in-front-till-someone-notices trick. Then I will YEEEEP and twirl till I get some food!..heh!

  22. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    1:20 pm on November 12th, 2014

    We here like kielbasa cooked on top of sauerkraut, served with a side of mashed potatoes.

  23. Riö -The Evil Pug
    1:52 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Diners!…I found a book called, “Diners Of New England” and was able to get this tidbit of information on Chet’s Diner…snort!

    Riö: Thanks for the information on Chet’s Diner. I know BSD appreciates it…although maybe not the early closing hours. But I guess when you are in your golden years you can do as you damn well please.

    There is apparently a Worchester Lunch Car at Henry Ford Museum (in Dearborn) that serves food. Interesting.

    The Google Doodle today is celebrating the “first controlled touchdown on a comet nucleus.”

  28. Masquers
    2:47 pm on November 12th, 2014

    B: Touchdown! kool!

  29. B.Stover
    3:02 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Masquers: Yes, it is cool! There is a story about it on CNN.

  30. Siber-H
    3:26 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Congratulations to the Europeans for a successful landing on the comet!

    I love authentic looking diners like Chet’s Diner.

  31. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    3:49 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Thanks for posting the interior shot of Chet’s. They close at 11:00 am but they serve meatloaf and corned beef? That is a little early for lunch. Corned beef could be for hash and eggs, but meatloaf is pretty much a lunch or dinner staple, right?

    Thank You Abbie! What a nice surprise. My Rockies hat! Melanie gave me that hat, sniff.

    Speaking of F.O.O.D.
    Barb, I would happily eat meatloaf for breakfast.

  40. Riö -The Evil Pug
    4:51 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Meatloaf!….The old lady who owns and runs Chet’s Diner only cooks breakfast not lunch…snort!

    Oh no! We have a lake-effect snow advisory. I hate when that happens. Lake Erie is 50° and the storms come down the lake, pick up the warm water and dump it on us when they reach land. We here in the Buffalo area always give a big sigh of relief when the lake freezes.

  42. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    5:37 pm on November 12th, 2014

    It was snowing like crazy when we arrived in Buffalo in March.

    Rio, Someone said their menu mentioned meatloaf sandwiches.

  43. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    5:39 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Sorry, that was meatloaf, sandwiches and pies. According to HOH.

  44. O'Howlers
    5:43 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Youse guys are making us very hungry, we would love a meatloaf sammich right about now. There is a roast in the crock pot that smells delish.
    Siber! FOOD! How appropriate.

  45. BearSpiritDog
    5:44 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Maybe it was an Old Menu.

  46. Riö -The Evil Pug
    6:10 pm on November 12th, 2014

    MagPie!…Regard the source of your information….snort!

  47. Riö -The Evil Pug
    6:27 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Menu!…Maybe it was a menu for another Chet’s Diner. I mean there could be multitudes of them in the world…grunt!…Here a Chet, there a Chet, everywhere a Chet!Chet!…snort!

  48. Herd of Hounds
    6:44 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Dear Rio, mom just got home so couldn’t defend herself till now. The information came from a You Tube video for a news station in the area. There was no date on the article as as we said earlier, we couldn’t get the sound to work. Video did show meatloaf and gravy and showed the afore mentioned menu board. Perhaps it was made before the hours were cut back.

  49. Herd of Hounds
    6:46 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Whoo hoo! Mom spent most of today with the adopted son working on a secret Snowhook project. Oh, boy, watch out boutique :)

  50. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    6:48 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Rio, LOL, or maybe it was an old menu from when she was open for breakfast and lunch.

    All this talk of food is making us hungry too. Soaking chicken strips in buttermilk, then frying them (something we don’t do often). Herbed rice and baked butternut squash.

  51. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    6:54 pm on November 12th, 2014

    BSD, you watch a lot of the same movies as we do. Did you see Blue Jasmine? Cate Blanchett did a great job in this Woody Allen directed film, but I must say, we couldn’t like her character.

  52. BearSpiritDog
    7:07 pm on November 12th, 2014

    O’Howlers: Crock Pot Dinners are the Best!

    Barb,Magpie,Lucy: We did like the Movie. But since it was so long ago, memory fails as to how likeable a character Jasmine was. We do remember being impressed with the acting.

  53. Tupper's Mama
    7:31 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Oh how we wish Chet’s diner was local and open 24/7.
    Or that we lived closer to Barb, Maggie and Lucy – chicken strips are our guilty pleasure/comfort food.

    We will have things in the auction – we promise. But everything is packed up at our studio right now. We will find time VERY SOON to go get pictures of items. And a Bear will be involved, as per our pledge of last year.

    Thanks to Michelle for giving us the info about Chet’s Diner. I love the interior also. Love to sit at the counter and talk to everyone sitting there.
    Meatloaf can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner (supper). So can corned beef hash. Yum! Comfort food.

    Amazing news about The landing on a comet!

    Awesome one, it will be 26*F here tonight anf tomorrow night (44 in the days), 36 Fri. and Sat. then 26 again on Monday night with a 90% chance for showers. GAH This is one chilling trends :( Hopefully the ground is still too warm if the sky gets any ideas about that white shiitake.
    Billy’s Buddy, you may keep that white stuff, thank you very much.

    8:32 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Mouse!…Didn’t Dawson have a wonky mouse the last time this sorta stuff started happening?…heh!…I think she double and triple clicks on the wonky mouse really fast – maybe she has a finger tick…snort!

  65. Basil and Sage
    8:37 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Wonky mouse? Wonky mouse, did you say? Is that anything like a catnip mousie? If it is, we’re your Kats. We’ll rassle that old wonky mouse till it acts right, yes we will!

  66. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    8:48 pm on November 12th, 2014

    It wasn’t a true triple. The last one had an additional completed sentence.

    If we click after already posting, it says Duplicate post…you already said that.

    8:49 pm on November 12th, 2014

    I may have mentioned this before, but in case I didn’t I want to alert you to a new app for smart phones. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks and hope that
    you’ll check it out. The app can be found at http://www.wooftrax.com. It’s called “walking the dog”. Once you download it and install in on your phone, you can open the app each time you go out for a walk with your dog. It keeps track of your route, your distance walked, and your speed. Then the sponsors of the app make a donation to a shelter of your choice for every mile walked. Use the app and spread the word about it to any dog walkers you know. There probably isn’t a shelter in the country that doesn’t need more money

  68. BearSpiritDog
    9:01 pm on November 12th, 2014

    TYB: Thanks for the Reminder about that Cool App.
    Someone had a really Good Idea to connect to Shelters.

  69. Bodyguard Meashka
    9:02 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Tyb, Mom used that app on our hike Sunday, while Pop used out MapMyRide app. At the end, the Walking the Dog app had a much abbreviated version of our hike. Mom said that maybe it doesn’t work well on a hike in the state forrest, but would work if we were walking in a neighborhood.

    Speaking of walking, Mom and I just got back from a late night walk on our pitch dark country roads. It was windy and we were walking past cornfields. The corn stalks were blowing and making lots of noise. Mom told me that she would have wet her pants out there in the scary dark if I weren’t with her. But she is never scarit when Meashka is on the job.

  70. Dawson
    9:07 pm on November 12th, 2014

    Rio: I did not click submit before I finished writing my post. I don’t have a “wonky mouse” or a “finger tick”. Get your facts straight before you post.

    Rio you are too funny with your grumpiness. Watch out though. Dawson has the ‘arm of death’. She could scare us older ones when she was a tiny little curly haired blond kiddo.

  78. Barb, Maggie and Lucy

  84. Tenzing
    12:05 am on November 13th, 2014

    A Katty: From my experience at least two of the Pretty Sisters Three play a mean game of cards so therefore…the third sister should stop by the Quilt once in a while to let me win a paw or two.

    Nighty and noodles.

  85. Staff
    12:56 am on November 13th, 2014

    I don’t gloat. I may throw my hands in the air and wiggle around on the chair and say “YEAH” quite loudly though.

    Congrats on the high score Dawson. I hope you have gotten that winning stuff out of your system. Or at least leave it in Montana.

  86. Staff
    12:57 am on November 13th, 2014

    Good eye Barb, Maggie & Lucy! Baby Oscar had to be Photoshopped in because after about 125 tries he was still trying to jump our of the car! Chef’s is open for dinner on Friday evenings. We were there during the Lenten season and they had an awesome fish and chips special!

    Can’t wait to see Dawson here in Minneapolis.
    Bored by her card score though.
    We will see if her luck holds when she gets here.
