Chetspeak on Sunday

Bernie reached out again and … oh, no: gave Napoleon a pat? All that did was make Napoleon growl. A pleasant development, and just in time to stop me from pushing in between. And then Napoleon made an up-from-under head twisting motion and I realized he wanted … more.

“Ooomph,” said Bernie. “Easy there, big guy. Sit down for a minute.”

I sat down, if sitting down could include butt not actually in contact with ground. As for how much time a minute was, my impression had always been hardly any at all.

“Chet! We’re working here.”

This was work? The case had something to do with Bernie patting Napoleon? I wasn’t seeing that, not the least little bit. But it was the kind of thing Bernie would know. I sat back down, my butt practically grazing the ground.

    Greetings!

    I love the line “butt grazing the ground” too! :^)

    A sunny day here in this neck of the woods. The 2 to 5 inches of snow predicted for yesterday did not materialize.

    C.Hobbitz: I was laughing at your pictures from yesterday’s post. Who’s a good dog and kitty indeed. :^)

    Congratulations to Dr. Joe! He’s the man!

    Create a good day!

    I’m glad even the Red Lantern made it back in time for the banquet.

    Thanks for the humorous Chetspeak today!

    I talked to Staff a couple days ago and she says her paw is doing excellent.

    Those pesky commas: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/16/us/oxford-comma-lawsuit.html?emc=edit_cnda_20170318&nl=canada-today&nlid=67633338&te=1

    Dawson, you know an Iditarod reporter’s job is never done. Just ask the foundation dog, Ole Doc, the stability (with sparkles) Belle Starr, the pillar of news, Wee Nigel and the sidekick, Beaumez!

    And Dawson, we like the “thoughtfully and Sparingly”.

    Excitement, Mr. Tom Turkey and his 3 lovely ladies just strolled through our front
    yard. The audacity! You would think our peeps fed them or something. Uh? Oh, oh, mom said she and the DDD feed lots of wild critters.

    Mom has tried to reach anyone at Iditarod via phone but there are no answers. Handy to have it on a late afternoon Sunday. Don’t know what else to do.

    BSD, look, they moved the 2 cameras from the burled arch and are now in the civic center, one on the room and one on the stage. A true technological achievement…meow.

    Thanks for posting that video, HOH. We are wondering why Joe said that line about lots of young people in the room who he is not encouraged by. Or did we hear that incorrectly?
