Chetspeak on Sunday

The perp looked around – what nasty little eyes he had! – and saw there was nowhere to go. We were in some kind of warehouse, big and shadowy, with a few grimy high-up windows and tall stacks of machine parts. I couldn’t remember how the warehouse fit in, exactly, or even what the whole case was all about; only knew beyond a doubt, from those nasty eyes and that sour end-of-the-line smell, a bit like those kosher pickles Bernie had with his BLT’s – I’d tried one; once was enough for the kosher pickles, although I always had time for a BLT – that this guy was the perp. I lunged forward and grabbed him by the pantleg. Case closed.

    I love the way Chet’s mind works (and the meandering sentences)!

    Good morning all.

    Home sweet home…but my luggage is lost somewhere. I had a nightmare with Air Canada arriving and Air Canada departing. Their security line is massive and obviously understaffed. There was a new employee that was very slow and targeting every carry on for search. 90 minutes in line and people let e jump some spaces because at some point I had 8 minutes to catch my flight. Plus my boarding pass had the dreaded SSSS code for extra screening. Then I had to clear customs and the guy was chatty. I barely made my flight which fortunately was 10 minutes delayed. When I boarded and agent said, “you are the one we are liking for” and had me step aside. The announcer was saying everyone should be on board and the gate was closing. Finally I was allowed to leave.. It turns out the SSS code also means your suitcase has to be pulled and searched. My suitcase never made it to Boston and is not in the system.

    All animals are fine and my new cat family is adorable. I had forgotten how small 10-day old kittens are. I gave my Houseitter the honor of naming them and she chose fish names: Guppy, Dolly, Flounder, etc. Weird.

    Ha!
    I remembered to put my name and address in the fields today.

    I feel better today and can stand and walk without collapsing into a quivering mess, which is always a plus. Still have a sore throat and congestion, fever and chills, but even that has moderated. Hooray! I’m gonna live!

    Brain is not quite with it though. I thought it was Monday and was getting ready to go out when the man-who-lives-in-this-house told me it was Sunday. Right again! That’s twice in one week! I am grateful for another day of rest and recuperation.

    CHobbitz: Oh no! I had that dreaded SSSS designation last time I flew too. What a pain, especially as it follows you through the whole trip, on every flight. Each leg they search all your luggage. One would think with a SSSS designation they would keep better track of your luggage! I’m glad you didn’t miss a flight.
    Welcome home! I like the names Guppy and Dolly, but Flounder is a definitely weird.

    CHobbitz, so glad you ar home even if sans luggage. Sounds like the Canada walking tour was wonderful…makes us want to sing the Canadian Railroad
    Trilogy. Your kitties are fortunate indeed to have you for a surrogate mom.
    Hope to see you in March.

    Just posted after adding name and email with a picture of mom’s Halloween fireplace. Submitted and got “thank you for your comment”. Refreshed and nothing was there. Sigh.

    Maybe there needs to be some updates? I am on a Windows 10 computer…

    Did someone mention Cheetos?

    I’m on a Windows 10 and I have to re-type name and address every time.

    Staff: Did you see the post where I hinted you should buy Their Wildest Dreams for me? It costs $130.00 on the amazon.ca site, GRUMP!

    Since I have 2 passports, I think what I did to earn the dreaded SSSS designation was show the wrong passport for the country I was in. It wouldn’t be so bad if they only checked you once but the searching through every piece of your luggage multiple times is nuts!

    It already dark at 7:30, I skipped a nap today and my back is relapsing a bit so I’m off to bed. I hope Ole Doc gets some Cheetos!
    I’m going to post while I don’t have to re-type the info. It is still there.

    Nighty noodle all.

    Dawson: You and me both.

    Noodles.
