Chetspeak on Sunday

Sniff sniff sniffing gets your nostrils quivering real fast, a nice feeling, as you might not know, the human sense of smell – even in huge-nosed dudes and gals – always turning out to be shockingly weak, in my experience. Take Bernie, for example, and his lovely big nose, somewhat crooked, although he plans to get it fixed when he’s sure no more dustups are in his future, which I hope is never, on account of how satisfying it is to see that sweet uppercut of his, followed by some perp toppling limp to the floor, all set for me to grab him by the pant leg, meaning case closed, closing cases being what we do at the Little Detective Agency. Little on account of Bernie’s last name being Little. I’m Chet, pure and simple. As for Bernie’s big crooked nose: What’s it for? Just beauty? Is that enough? I tried to think about that, got as far as: Why not? Hey! Beauty was enough! And of course Bernie’s the most beautiful human I’ve ever seen. Hold onto that fact, if nothing else.

    Good morning all. Happy Chetspeak!

    Stopped at the library yesterday on the way home from a family party for Jack’s 8th B-Day. Picked up the newest Rosenfelt book, Twelve Dogs of Christmas. The librarian said that she loved the author and the Andy Carpenter series. I told her I had read all of them and mentioned that she might like the C&B series, too. She said that she was a big fan and had read all of those as well. We were kindred spirits!

    Greetings!

    I am laughing at today’s Chetspeak. Chet certainly knows noses. :^)

    Grizz transferred my pictures from my phone. Thursday, I took a stroll down Fifth Avenue. This one is at Grand Army Plaza at the Plaza Hotel.

    An azalea bush on the property where I live. My mom loved azaleas. I always think of her when I see them.

    BMALS: Here you go. I took a picture of the plaque at the monument, but it isn’t big enough to read.

    Wose, love ❤️ all the fotos but got a real hoot out of “Rexy” and saw a couple of handbags I could really enjoy! (If I only had a fortune.)

    HOH: The flagship store has a collection of vintage bags and clothing on display…it’s really interesting to look at all the different bags.

    Gold leaf on the statue, rather time consuming and expensive I bet!

    BMALS: I can’t even imagine the man hours it must take to clean the statue.

    And the first peonies to bloom here in Chevy Chase . . .

    Ah, the peony, it has history back to the Greeks. The helper of the god of medicine was favored by Zeus for being brighter than the god. We like the way it looks.

    I have 4 peonies, each a different variety. Mine are still about 1-2 weeks away from blooming. I love them! My new dwarf crabapple from last year, is looking glorious this year.

    This is the dwarf crab. It is covered with blossoms.

    BMALS: Very pretty!

    Question for those of you who are familiar with flowers. I took this picture when I went to the Guggenheim. Does anyone know what kind of flower this is?

    Could be a hydrangea. They are usually blue or pink but the leaves look like hydrangea.

    BMALS: Thanks. They are so pretty.

    Thank you. It is a small tree that will fill out but will mature at only 10′.

    Wose, BMALS is right, it is a hydrangea variation. Oak Leaf hydrangeas come in white but there have been several hybrids in the past few years.

    Hi, guys! Busy weekend for Mom. She is still working on plants and stuff outside. We aren’t crazy about that since it keeps her outside and us staring out the window. Yesterday she decided she could dig up the root ball of a palm that froze during our only freezing weather this past winter. Holy kat! That was a chore. It took her several hours. The bed was very muddy under the surface so it was very heavy mud she was working with. She almost gave up several times but persevered! I am proud to say the ground gave birth to a root ball about 24 inches in diameter with a gazillion roots and about 1000 pounds of mud! She is woman hear her roar!,

    Love,love, love all the pictures everyone posted over the weekend. Wose, you never bore us and we are quite proud of your day-cations.

    BMALS, is Baye the younger daughter or the older one? Is she the one that is horse crazy?

    All the lovely pictures of flowers are making me jealous. I do have a 2″ stub visible where my peony will be. I did plant some pansies. They can take the cold. Otherwise all I have here are garden chives, not yet blooming, and the white and blue scilla that I planted last fall.

    sniff.
