Chetspeak on Sunday

“This must be Chet,” said Mayor Trimble. “What a handsome dog!” The mayor turned out to be a round little guy with more than one chin, very big ears and a string tie. In short, what wasn’t to like? “Happen to have some nice rawhide chews,” he said. “Can he have one?”

Bernie sighed, for no reason that I could come up with.

What a mayor did, exactly, was anybody’s guess, but one thing for sure: we had the best mayor around. Soon I was lying on the floor at Mayor Trimble’s side, working on a rawhide chew, tough and tasty, just the way I liked. The mayor introduced everybody – “’Course you already know Cal Luxton, head of security, and this is Vera Cobb, chief of staff.” Then came handshaking, hello hellos, and nobody took a single sniff of nobody, all very human, and everyone sat down.

Mayor Trimble rocked back in his chair. “Pleasure to have this opportunity to renew our friendship, Bernie.”

“Is that what we had?” Bernie said.

“Any mistakes were mine,” the mayor said. “Real or imagined. I should have patched things up long ago. Everything goes by so goddamn fast. Agreed?”

“That everything goes by fast?” Bernie said. “I won’t argue.”

– from A Fistful of Collars. Next week’s Chetspeak will be from The Sound and the Furry (coming Sept. 10).

Welcome Josh, Peck o’ Parrots, Gracie, Gracie & Molly, Helena (and her knee-length tongue).

    Good morning, everyone! Grrrreat, Chetspeak (gotta love it) and Egg Day except the OH are on a vehement vacation so don’t know if eggs are in thier future. BooBear and family are in our thoughts. Wolfie, stay safe, smoke-free and cool. Our lady, the giant, Tenzing and the pack, hold to each other and you will feel all of us there too. Everyone else…

    Let’s all have a solid Sunday!

    Beautiful morning and Chetspeak. Can life get any better? You tell me.

    The wheelbarrow 1/2 of the way full of peaches is now out front with a sign that says Free Peaches. It is now 1/4 the way full.

    We still have peaches on the tree!

    Today I need to fill another gutter with compost. The strawberries are sending out roots. All over the place . .

    A message from Golinka this morning . .

    “They just told us there were 56 THOUSAND people here yesterday. No wonder there was no internet access.
    We are exhausted but in good sports. Not looking forward to packing up tonight since we can’t even START to pack until 11pm. We do have less to pack.
    Please tell the blog hi for me. I know I won’t have any chance to be on at all until tomorrow night at the very earliest.”

    She also mentioned something about last day and cotton candy . .

    ARRGGG. “spirits” not “sports”. My error not hers.

    HOH. I do seem to be doing well with “some” things. My pumpkin plant and 2 of my 3 squash plants died. Have no idea why.

    Must look at what kind of soil they like.

    Beeeautiful day here…nighttime temps down to 55 but inside it stays around 70…nice!
    Hey, Riö, another night of Breaking Bad coming up. WoooHooo.
    Melanie: Do youse watch it too? or just your guys……
    Anyone else?

    10:51 am on August 25th, 2013

    Spence: Thanks for the Chetspeak. I’m looking forward to next weeks sneak peek.

    My one sunflower that survived from seed is blooming.

    I have not watched BB from the beginning but they had a marathon of season 4 and season 5 so I watched those and now I’m hooked. Since I leave in two weeks, I suppose I’m going to miss the last few episodes.

    Masquers, it’s my guys that watch that. Not me. There are times when they are up and insist that I watch something that is not my usual forte. They then tell me when to shut my eyes.

    Have not watched “The Bridge”, and I am definitely not going to start watching that.

    Dawson. Yea! A sunflower!

    We are enjoying “Heat of the Sun”. Which takes place in Kenya. I goofed the first time I wrote about it. BBC mini series. 1999.

  16. Masquers
    11:34 am on August 25th, 2013

    Movies! We watched a good one last night: Dark Side of the Sun…starring a very young Brad Pitt…circa late 90’s. It takes place in Yugoslavia.
    Dawson: Good to know we have someone else addicted to BB.
    Hurray for your tenacious sunflower!

    HofH. Your apology to Lewis Carroll reminded me of a great parody of Jabberwocky that I saw in Mad Magazine once and which I still remember to this day. It began as follows:

    ‘Twas Brillo and the GE Stoves
    Did Procter Gamble in the Glade
    All Pillsbury were the Tastee Loaves
    And in a Minute Maid

  18. Barb & Maggie
    11:50 am on August 25th, 2013

    We do not watch BB or The Bridge. Will not start. Know you guys like it, but it seems to dark, intense and violent for Barb’s taste.

    Wookie/Teddy’s Dad. That is funny, but we have no clue about Jabberwocky.

  19. B. Stover
    11:56 am on August 25th, 2013

    Barb: Jabberwocky is a nonsense poem from Through the Looking Glass. (All of the Alice stories scared me as a kid.)

  20. BearSpiritDog
    12:00 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Barb&Magpie: On BB it is the Brilliant Writing, Acting and Directing that we like. The Bridge…not so much.

    Wookie’s Dad: Love your limerick from Mad Magazine.
    Mad Magazine was the Greatest! We remember one showing the left side of a guys face all old and wrinkly…the right side looking normal…the results of driving in a car with the sun coming in through the window on the driver’s side.

    Chetspeak from the new book next Sunday!! We love all the Chetspeak.

    I have never watched an episode of Breaking Bad. However, I have followed it here on the blog and in my newspaper, which has given it a lot of coverage. My newspaper would like all of you Breaking Bad fans to know that you are only seeing one side of Albuquerque in Breaking Bad…the seedy side.

    When this final season is over with and Rio has seen the last episode, will one of you Breaking Bad fans please tell me what happens to Walter White.

    BTW…The cast and crew of Breaking Bad always interacted with the community here and did a lot of charity work and giving to charities while they were filming here. They have been the favorite of any production that has filmed here.

    Lefty, the thief from Snowhook, up top.

    I have received my passport envelope back from Melanie. Also 7 other envelopes with “Born to Drool” balloons, pictures, a card and Newf hair! What a fun collection. Open to suggestions as to what I should do with Newf hair. (Braid it and put it in a locket?)

    Thoughts of peace for BooBear and family.
    Thoughts of strength for Tenzing and Snowhook.

    Dawson: Head bumps to you. You warm the cockles of my heart.

    We received some good news from the vet yesterday. They received some of my lab results and it shows I don’t have clotting issues. My Lady says this is a relief because there was great concern about clotting issues given the amount of blood. Three, count ’em, three rugs were harmed—D.E.A.D.—in the making of my last health episode.

    The Giant took my Lady on a date yesterday to the state fair on account of my Lady getting free passes for volunteering for something or other. They had a good time just wandering around, but crowds are not for them. My Lady had fair food for the first time—delish. After their date, they went rug shopping, but I forget why.

  26. BooBear
    1:08 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Well!!! Mom thinks she should have more days of peace after losing Gus BUT I have to establish my position has CCIC (Chief Cat in Charge) in this household now that Gussy is gone. Yes, that does involve alot of hissing, spitting and in general, being a be-acht!! But some of these boys (Putter, Lefty–named after a certain thief at Snowhook, Tig and Tucker)seem to think they have a certain “gender right.” Well, since any gender bits have been removed, I THINK NOT!!! The fight is on!!!!

  27. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:14 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Be-acht!…snort!…Wow, Boobee is coming out fighting…heh!snort!heh!….I like it!

    Bridge!….I am so relieved you guys did not see the episode I saw last night. There are things I cannot get out of my mind that are so very bad…gah!…That was it for me. Shock for the sake of shock does not make a writer great….sniff!

    Mr.Tenzing!…Relief is what I feel after reading your Rug-Report…snort!…I am also glad that the Giants got to step out for the day and have some fun and fair food…slurp!…These guys are going to go have some Mexican food after all the laundry is done. I get to sit here and smell Beau. He really needs a bath but the groomer is out of town this weekend…groan!…There is no way I am going all the way to Iowa with him smelling like old pee…sniff!gah!

  28. Melanie
    1:20 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Dear Tenzing, I understand your Lady’s worry when she saw the blood. YSAS, always dramatic, had a bad cough when he was about seven. My brother was visiting, Thank Dog. I heard YSAS screaming in the bathroom. I opened the door to – yes, just like your Lady – a slaughter house scene. I was getting ready to rush him to the hospital when my brother said not to worry. It was just a bloody nose.

    It was. AND, it was one of those things I wold prefer not to remember in detail. snicker.

    Dawson, it took forever for the Newfs to get all that together. Well, not the hair that was the easiest. Hope you enjoy the stamps.

    The compost got soaked after the last two storms. Methinks the tarp I am using to cover it has sprung a few holes. Now I need to let it dry before putting in the runners. Then I can water it again. Makes no sense, but what am I going to do?

    Now I have to find my natural allergy stuff. I can’t see out of my left eye.

    What is “fair food”? I’m thinking of cotton candy.

    1:27 pm on August 25th, 2013

    You tell’em BooBear. We all know what the word stands for.
    Boys, I’m taking charge here!

    AJ and SnowBella. Wonderful date night. Fair food. Sigh, the smell of grease, onions and garlic. Wow, wouldn’t Chet love a State Fair.

    It is the last day of our town’s fair. Very big thing here. Zoë and I were thinking of going but instead of $5 per car it is now $10 per person. That is just to get in!

    Quiet day at home instead. Except our sneezing.

  31. BearSpiritDog
    1:32 pm on August 25th, 2013

    The Bridge apparently has No Competition with the likes of YSAS and Tenzing.
    Sorry about the Rugs, SnowBella.
    And, as for YSAS…Melanie, It looks as though he always did have a touch of the Dramatic.
    As to you…Arr, Arr Me Hearty.

    1:33 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Melanie: I was so excited about all the goodies that I completely forgot about stamps, heh heh, although I did notice a butterfly stamp on one of the envelopes.

    I am going to try a recipe called Boumiano from Jane Gregson’s Vegetable Book (I love this book). It calls for eggplant, which I just purchased at the farmer’s market, tomatoes, garlic and anchovies. I am going to add mushrooms. Oh boy! Also making cream of mushroom with wild rice soup today. Too hot to go outside.

  33. BearSpiritDog

    Tenzing: Thank Dog for the positive sounding lab report! My Prayer is for your condition to go into remission for a long while.

    BooBear: You tell ’em!

    Now…Off to the Kitchen.

    Melanie!…That is incredibly interesting!…zow!

    Meer-Kats!….Their little faces look so human-like…snort!…I bet I would like having a Meer-Kat as a friend and a secret-agent…heh!heh!

    Bear!…I know you did not ask me, but I am going to tell you anyways…sniff!…This morning my friend ordered the latest Robbie Forester on her Kindle…heh!…We got to chapter 4 before her mother started bothering us….grunt!

  48. Masquers

    3:25 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Bear, No it was not about a Kindle pre-order. It was just a general announcement about the release of The Sound and The Fury.
    I always want a hard copy of Chet’s books rather than the e-book

  51. BearSpiritDog
    3:28 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Rio: Gah. Nothing more Annoying than being bothered when reading a good book.
    Thinking of your Upcoming Trip to Iowa…This will be a First for Beau, right?…Hope he likes Car-Rides. Snicker.

    Thanks, Siber-H, I’m with on that. The Hard Cover is a Keeper.

    3:37 pm on August 25th, 2013

    BEAR!…heh!…You did come back after your trip to the kitchen!…chorkel!…Beau used to live in Tennessee, so he has been around the block…sniff!…But I am not sure if he has ever been in Iowa before…grunt!

    4:10 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Rio: The scene where Walter was at Jesse’s saying, “You have to believe me, Mike is ok”, was very interesting. Jesse’s body language made me think Jesse does NOT for a second believe Walter. Not sure if Walter believed Jesse but those two do not trust each other and will both be planning against the other. And then there is Hank.
    And the flash forward scene with Walter, still alive (and sporting hair), retrieving the ricin at the devastated homestead. Hmmm.

    Dawson!…Yes, when Walt said, “You have to believe me…” I knew immediately that Walt will kill Jesse if he becomes a problem. And Jesse, has become a problem….Yeeep!…I wish he would have thrown some of that money into my back yard…grunt!

  65. Siber-H
    4:29 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Rio! I am so ready for the auction!!

  66. Melanie
    4:46 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Siber-H, the auction items are unbelievable! And . . Should be something in everyone’s price range. That will help if you have over used your mom’s credit card.

    I retreated to my rooms after doing the gutter. I don’t know what is in the air, but it is my enemy.

    I don’t remember if I’ve told the blog that I have special screens that cut down on the allergens coming in . . It also keeps the dust in if I haven’t dusted for awhile. Guess what? Sneezing everywhere.

    I moved my rooms around last year before the poop hit the fan. I am just getting things back in order. I was cleaning out a desk drawer and came upon a package of fishing hooks. Huh? I haven’t fished in YEARS.

    I’m keeping them for OTAS. He’s the only one who fishes right now.

    4:55 pm on August 25th, 2013

    SiberH!…You might be ready for the Auction but I don’t think the Bid O’ Matic POS is ready…grunt!….I was trying to show Teddy how to start it the other day and all it did was blow smoke up our butts…wheeze!

  68. Barb & Maggie
    5:45 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Barb just told her bro Dave that SQ is going to be in Durham, NC for a book signing. Dave is going to try to go if it fits with his doctoring schedule. Barb has given him all the books in the series. Last one we had signed to Riley his Chessie.

    When Jack was here on Friday, I kept following him from room to room cuz I love him. He got up on the big easy chair and said “Maggie, two paws up” so I put my front feet up on the chair. Then he said “Maggie, four paws up”, so I jumped all the way on the chair (I really don’t know the 4 paws command). Then he looked at Barb and said “does she know 2 paws down?” Barb laughed and I stayed on the chair.

  69. Siber-H
    5:50 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Rio, It will all work out. I am sure. The thought of me spending money will motivitate you to great technical achievements at Auction Central
    Teddy is still a youngster so don’t overwork the little guy.

  70. dawson
    6:10 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Rio: That smoke will be coming out Teddies ears before the Auction is over. Don’t break the little fellow.

    I only got the eggplant dish half done and I quit. It just got too hot to be turning the oven on for the baking part. I didn’t even start the soup. Instead I cut up cantaloupe and watermelon from the farmer’s market and we can eat left-over borscht. Or Hebrew Nationals and beans. Or ice cream and cookies.

    I forgot to mention this morning how glad I am that Mr. Tenzing got a good report from the vet. Mom is forever grateful for the care he showed Gus while they were sharing the quilt.

    Auction this coming weekend. Auction Central, will it be starting on Friday or on Saturday. Inquiring minds want to know.

    I have to go back to the vet tomorrow for more lab work, whatever that is, but my Lady says I’m acting more myself. I don’t fee tip top, but I always feel like Tenzing.

    Yesterday at the fair, the Giant and my Lady went to see the animals. My Lady insisted. She saw something she couldn’t resist. Before the Giant knew it, my Lady was crouched down, reaching through the fencing and petting a baby piglet. My Lady looked to her left and saw a two year-old doing the same thing. To her right was a four year-old also doing the same thing. Her pride was gone. However, it was long gone the day she and I met.

    My Lady is sorting through all the wonderful auction items. Wowser!

    Tenzing!…Is my Auction Item (made by my friend) in the big gaggle of Auction Items??…sniff!…I hope it did not get lost in the rush when everyone was sending in stuff all at the same time…wheeze!

    Tenzing!…Petting a piglet is sort of like petting Beau. They are both smelly and fat….heh!

    Tenzing, if your Lady ever finds her pride let me know. I lost mine years ago. In fact, about the time I had my guys.

    It is hard to have pride when you are walking down the grocery aisle with your fingers in your ears. Dog, YSAS NEVER stopped talking.

    Anyhoo, it is time to go upstairs. Not going to get as wonderfully cold again tonight. Nothing wrong with 56 degrees though.

    HOH, Looks like your mom is having fun with her iPad. snicker.

    8:46 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Melanie: I wonder if her pride and your pride is stored safely away with Junior’s eyebrows and Teddy’s blog voice. Pancho and Lefty pleade innocence on all counts.

    Rio: Yes, your most wonderful item made it to the auction house. The delivery guys tried to buy it flat out, but my Lady said no. There are so many wonderful itmes. My Lady is holding back some Snowhook items just as CHH held back items.

    Tenzing- Lab work? I thought you were a Husky. Next thing we know, you will be getting a Kat Scan.

    Pre-notice, dad is opening an online knife shop. Keep up in mind for all your knifing and flashlighting needs.

    Staff: You are such a tender caregiver. I like that about you.

    HOH: Wrens! Wren will they listen? 🙂

    I hope the only packing Golinka and the Storyteller have to do tonight is a very heavy wallet from selling all their wonderful wares.

    9:40 pm on August 25th, 2013

    9:43 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Princess Sam: There are some secrets that aren’t meant to be kept. This is one of them. Your new cousin is adorable. The secrets that are meant to be kept?—Those walk the line of who exactly is responsible for eating the Giant’s antique, leather bound French books, or who ate my Lady’s favorite chapstick.

  103. Herd of Hounds
    9:51 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Sammie: what a cute cousin! She will do so well with Bob.

  104. Belle Starr
    9:51 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Maybe Wose and I can get the one on the left without anyone knowing. I won’t tell my Two-legged if she won’t tell my Two-legged.

  105. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:56 pm on August 25th, 2013

    My Lady better get cracking on repairing the gavel and the Bid-O-Matic 3000. Both took quite a beating during the last auction. It could be that one was used to, er, repair the other.

    Project!…Someone got a really good start on another major project today…snort!…Can anyone guess what it will be???..sniff!

  121. Tenzing
    11:14 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Rio: My guess is wonderful. Am I close?

  122. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:18 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Answer!…”Experimental”…snort-of!…heh!…She is looking at some of the Experts Pieces and trying to teach herself the techniques, because those guys do NOT SHARE…sniff!…She is using cut up egg cartons to form the pieces. I’m sure the “Experts” have a better way, but she can not think of one. Plus chickens have been on her mind lately…heh!

  123. Tenzing
    11:23 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Chickens! My Lady saw chickens yesterday, too. She thought of Chicken Lady Barb and the Howlers and their little chicks. She did not find herself shoulder to shoulder with toddlers to pet the chickens. Apparently, she only saves that reaction for Beau-like creatures.

  124. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:24 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Question!…Would youse all like to see how this major project comes together over a long period of time??…sniff!…She says she will photograph the entire process because it is a “Next Level” sort of thing for her…chuffle!…So it will be a learning experience in both or multiple senses if youse all want to watch it happen…grunt!…More work says me. But then again, Barb, I am only a Pug. ..heh!

  125. Tenzing
    11:31 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Rio: The entire Kennel says yes and we number more than two!

  126. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:41 pm on August 25th, 2013

    Okay!….What you see is what you get!…snort!….This will be over a long time and not all detail will be photographed as that is just crazy to even think about…heh!…You will see “progress” as I am very sure you are not wanting to know HOW to do this….chorkel!…Maybe you (Snowhook Kennel) are interested in how it all comes together…sniff!…Not me. Let’s just say I warned youse all, so no complaining over the next who knows how long ….grunt!

    Staff, dad is a flashlight hoarder too. I have already warned him that he can’t keep every one he buys. The merch has been trickling in. We are having a hard time being excited over every. single. knife, flashlight that comes in, but he has ordered some pink ones. One flashlight is smaller than mom’s pinky, but it will knock your eyes out. IOHO the website is not quite ready for company, but we will post as soon as it is.

    Brainnnsss, need brainnnnnnsss. In more than one way!

    “lab work” snicker. Macy, I had heard of Kat Scans, but not lab work . . Next time I have to get my blood drawn should be a hoot.

    In Harry Potter, when Harry, Hermione, and Ron go on the “lamb” (snort!) Hermione has a purse that carries “everything”, I wonder if that is where our pride and Junior’s eyebrows have gotten to. There are days that in my purse with a bottom, I can’t find what I know is in there.
