Chetspeak on Sunday

We got off the elevator, found ourselves at the back of a court room. Iā€™d been in court rooms before, even been exhibit A for my buddy Judge Jaramillo, down in the Valley, but never one this small. It had only two benches on either side of a narrow aisle, then two long desks, and in front of that and raised up on a dais another desk, at which Judge Stringer was sitting. He wore a black robe and looked real tired. At each of the two desks sat a group of two people, their backs to us. One of those people was Bernie. He was wearing an orange jumpsuit! This was the worst moment of my life.

    Good Morning to All on Chetspeak Sunday. Have a Happy Egg Day!

    We are Re-reading the entire Chet & Bernie Mysteries waiting for the 9th, but haven’t gotten to the one with Chet in Court and Bernie in an Orange Jumpsuit.

    In the field in front of my house I just discovered the largest dandelions I’ve ever seen. They are very beautiful. My mom used to make dandelion wine which is quite good.

    B: That was moi. BSD doesn’t indulge, but he is looking for a good recipe for dandelion salad if you have it.

    Sorry Bear but she never gave me the recipe.

    Thanks for letting me know, B.

    Doesn’t Anyone Else have any Dandelion Recipes?

    B: In Lieu of the Recipe can you take a Photo?

    Bear: My camera is not working–I need a new battery. (I’m certainly not much help am I….) There are several recipes for dandelion wine online. (By the way, “dandelion” is Latin for lion’s tooth…neat!) The ones in the field are about two or three inches in diameter. Usually they are about one inch.

    Masquers: Dandelion wine sounds quite refreshing. Here is a recipe:

    I hope there aren’t too many ads along with this link.

    Wherever Rio is, I hope his soft, warm bed with all his baseball toys in all the right places has been unpacked.

    Fun!…I always thought hitting the road with my little knapsack and harmonica would be fun!fun!fun!…sniff!…But after this trip I ain’t going no where no how, never….wheeze!…Except away from this house by golly. 2 + 1 kids is two + one too much for me and Beau…grunt!…But that is the tip of the story. They are just annoying, it’s so much more my friend and her mother have had to deal with which is the true horror story…wuffle!…If I was to tell you the tail it would curl yer toenails and make your teeth hurt…snuffle!…So it best be kept for another time when I am not so tired and aggravated….huffle!grumble!fart!

    RIO! No soft, warm bed…THE HORROR!

    Oh no!
    Bernie in an orange jumpsuit?! It couldn’t get any worse than that.

    Rio: I am upset that you don’t have a nice soft warm bed with all your toys in all the right spots but even more worried about your friend and her mother who have been having a tortuous time on the road. I just cut my toenails and they will not curl so I’m glad you are not to tell us the gruesome tale tonight. 2 + 1 kids is definitely annoying. Hang in there.

    I have no dandelion recipes but I do think they are beautiful.

    Super busy weekend! Friday night crawfish boil supporting local police, Saturday garage sale with neighbors and plant shopping today with a friend. You tell me when Mom was supposed to fit in quality time with fur-babies!

    If it weren’t for lovely green weeds, mom would have a dirt yard.
    BooBear, you poor ignored critters.
