Chetspeak on Sunday

“Hey, Chet, a little space, buddy.”

Oops. I was way over on Bernie’s side. I shifted closer to my door.

“And ease up on the drooling.”

Drooling? Me? I moved over as far as I could and sat stiffly the rest of the way, back straight, eyes forward, aloof. I wasn’t alone in the drooling department, had seen Bernie drooling in his sleep more than once, and Leda, too, Bernie’s ex-wife, meaning humans drooled, big time. But had I ever made the slightest fuss about it, or thought less of them? You tell me.

    Chet, send Bernie over here if he talks about you drooling again. He will never complaina bout you again.

    I remember each of our Pack first day of drooling. We were so proud. When pups it is a small drip. As adults? The spigot is goin full blast.

    Good morning. I do not drool but I have seen Newfie drool up close and personal. There are no words to describe it.

    When Gus has long hanging drools and then shakes his head…..well lets just say the drool flys, and doesn’t always land in the best spot.

    Gooood morning, everyone! Wow, a sumptious Sunday. We just hope ya’ll are ok after that rousing party, and Mealnie, lovely cake.

    Chetspeak and Egg Day, life doesn’t get much better. Darah isn’t quite big enough for a pillow, yet, but she awakens 2 leggers well with either 1) SNORES or 2) a LARGE, soggy paw 🙁 She is the mistress of “projectile slobber.

    Melanie, we had to laugh at you and the “vapors”. Mom has a perfect fan for you. She tooook it to the game due to the heat! It was passed out by a local TV station, heavy cardstock on a tongue depresser.

    Gus is very good. One of our Ladies (Ellie) was able to shake her head and the drool splatter would go 20 feet.

    I am so proud of Darah. She is headed for being an ALPHA in Newfdom.

    You are welcome for your cake. I hope you got a piece.

    HEY, YOU KATS . .

    Melanie: I don’t remember anything about chickens – it wasn’t me. Sure, I brung ’em to begin with but when I went to sleep they were singing along with the kats…and even with the Sibers. That’s the last thing I remember…being serenaded to sleep with the jazz getting better and better.

    Redbone: I did make it off the roof. Luna came by and blurred me home early this morning. She gave me a short lecture and a long disappointed look. She told me it is okay to fly with the pugs at night as long as I can soar with the sled dogs the next morning. Then she told me to get chores done first thing, but not before she gave me my sunglasses and told everyone to keep quiet.

    Charlie: The Divine Comedy isn’t funny but Dante had fun writing it especially the Inferno. He put people he didn’t like in the lower circles…and some of them were still alive.

  37. Charlie
    2:59 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    B: Dante may be a good writer, but I think he needed help with his titles.

    Melanie: We’ll be right over. I will use two extra sets of water wings—a wing for each leg and a wing for each ear.

  40. B. Stover
    3:23 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    Dante claimed that the Divine Comedy was a poem of redemption–that sinners could still redeem themselves. I’ve always considered it a poem of revenge. Dante was exiled from Florence (probably for political reasons) and wrote the poem while in exile. (There was an order that he and others of his party be killed if they ever set foot in Florence.) He called the church (catholic at the time–“universal”) a “harlot” and was considered a heretic. He put seven popes in the Inferno.

  41. Pancho & Lefty
    3:26 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    What’s this? Sinners can still redeem themselves? This is good news. Good news indeed.

  42. B. Stover
    3:31 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    Charlie: You also need to consider the three parts of the Divine Comedy: Interno, Purgatorio, (Dante is guided by the “shade” of Virgil) and Paradiso. He ends being guided by Beatrice (she represents “divine revelation” and is probably based on a woman Dante loved from afar) through Paradise.

  43. B. Stover
    3:32 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    That should be “Inferno.”

  44. Herd of Hounds

    We don’t think we want to get into the pool full of Newfs and water-wing wearing Huskies. But if you need us, we’ll be Under the Boardwalk. Out of the sun. Under the boardwalk, we’ll be havin some fun.
    Just in case anyone wants to join us.

    Bee – Mama has a game she plays in her mind when someone has truly angered her. She calls it Fantasy Island, and she plots out the most dastardly revenge schemes. Some of them are truly brilliant, but of course she would never actually do them. She LOVES the idea that Dante wrote his enemies into circles of h e l l. That’s a new idea for Mama’s game. (Of course nowadays there are all kinds of libel laws….sigh)

    3:57 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    T&G: Perhaps your mom could use aliases instead of real names. I think it would be fun to read her finished product.

    Dante wrote the poem in Italian rather than Latin so that more people could read it and not just those who were educated (universities taught in Latin then).

Once I am back in Clifford I will mail them at our little post office that is only open for 2 hours every M-F. Barb, the chicken spice book jars will be shipped after I arrive home also.

    Speaking of missions, the ‘rents just successfully got those dang chicks moved from the Love Shack to theTaj Mahal a.k.a. washing machine carton. First, they were put into the Big Box with a minimal amount of sand. Moving that sand out of the old box to muck buckets was hard labor. Then the chicks went into the muck buckets while the taj mahal got put into place. Then those girls were moved back into their new digs. Now they are running around trying to figure out what happened. It has been reported that some of them are very upset that they can no longer escape to big adventures.

    Riö, Dawson threw the first hen. She “says” she doesn’t remember any of it. I don’t believe that. She was snorting and laughing while she took aim. I think the Herbs got it the worst. I don’t think ever seen Kats levitate before . . snicker . . laughing . .

    So glad that some of the Plunderer Pack had a good time in the pool and under the ladder. I have just finished cleaning the pool . . Lots of fur!

    Was it sorta like throwing a frying pan, Dawson? Maybe about the same weight.

    We will NOT watch that guy. Several of his relatives have fallen to their deaths. Too much for us. Barb has a terrible fear of heights. She does not even like to drive over bridges!

    MagPie, the walk is televised with a ten second time delay. I thought it was stupid when he walked over Niagara Falls and I think this is stupid too. If he falls no one is going to see it and they shouldn’t. So what’s to watch really.

    Sammie!…You are taking this all very personally…sniff!…This is what the guy does for a living. He walks the wire and makes a LOT of money. My friend drives the high-way twice a day and makes NO money – everyone puts themselves in danger by the nature of living…sniff!….Look at Chet and Bernie, for example.

    We won’t watch the Wallenda show off. We figure that if he makes it – good for him. If he doesn’t, there will be replay after replay, ad nauseum.

    But we are going to check out the new game show – think it’s called “WhoDunnit” or some such. It is like those dinner theater murder mysteries, but this is a game show to see who can figure out who the murderer is. Sounds like it could be fun – or not. We will see.

    And then we might go outside and take a peak at the sky. We’ve heard it said that There’s a Bad Moon On The Rise.
    Take it away HOH….

    WhoDunnit!…That sounds very interesting, maybe more than this walk – but when does that show start?…grunt!…Maybe we can watch both…heh!heh!

    Show!…We found it – it is on at 8:00pm here on channel 7 …grunt!….That sounds like fun. I hope they do not ruin it with Reality Melodrama…sneeze!

    Cooper!… Not the guy from Twin Peaks??….sniff!..We will watch him anytime…heh!

    Fascinating!….Learning how they put the Wire up for Nick W. and stabalized it is fascinating…grunt!

    Show!…So did they check out the show or not…grunt!…Not a word about it before they scrambled off to bed…sniff!

    Twin Peaks? Don’t think so, Rio.

    Nap!….yawn!…I fell asleep waiting for Nick to walk the 2 inch wire…snort!…He still has not started… heh!

    Cooper!…Remember Agent Cooper from Twin Peaks?…sniff!…If this show is about that Cawfee Drinking Agent Cooper, then we are all in…heh!…Actually saw Dale Cooper on the Good Wife this season. Same quirky guy…chorkel!

    Melanie: I wear my mosquito net everyday while I do dog chores. It is a life saver. I’ve started playing around with making my own in fun Belle Starr colors.

    9:30 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    Nick!…Walking to the start of the Walk…heh!…His wife says he is a Dad first and a Daredevil second…snort!…Baloney!

  110. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:35 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    Next!…yeeep!…He should finally start walking out into and onto air…yeeep!…Very scary. I think The Middle is the most scary for some reason…wheeze!

  111. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:39 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    OMG!….He has a camera on him so we can see “down” at what he sees…yeeeeepp!

    My dog and I were outside today for about an hour. Sadie was watching me do some painting. I kept spraying myself down and looked over at Sadie and saw her head covered in mosquitoes. I remembered a vet told me to spray my hand and then gently pat the dog so that is what I did. My own head (mostly face) has picked up a few more bites. The mosquitoes also hitch a ride on clothes and come inside the house. The mosquitoes have been so bad this summer that some stores are sold out of bug dope. It is strange that they winter over at -50 and -60.

    CHobbit!…That is how my friend gets that nasty smelling stuff on us…grunt!….She sprays her hand and then acts like she wants to pet me and Beau..grump!

    Unbelievable!…. WIND!…He is way out there now and the wind is high… GASP!…. The cable is quivering more than they expected…GASP!…Lord watch over this fool…snort!

  114. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:50 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    Breathtaking!….Utterly breathtaking!…wheeze!…He is Halfway and, and, and holy cow! …gasp!

  115. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:52 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    Tense!….When the wire quivers (or sumthing) too much he actually kneels down and waits….gah!…How can he do that??

  116. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:57 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    Prayer!….We are all praying for him now….He is so close to being safe….snort!…The wind has been really high…gah…He is so close to being safe…wheeze!

  117. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:01 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    Scarier!…It is even scarier now because he is so close and …gasp!…He trotted to the end….wheeze!…MADE IT!…Damn fool!…He made it!…sob!sob!…

    Bella, just be careful not to put any rhinestones in the way of your vision. Perhaps they could cascade done your back?

    C. Hobbit. Our state bird is not the mosquito, but it certainly seems that way this year. I have moved my evening walk into during the day. Hotter, but I’m not hitting myself constantly.

    Rio: Thank you for you play-by-play! You pay for the whole seat, but you only need the edge the way you commentate.

    CHH: You can tell someone is from outside when they ask, “What happen to your face,” as they see all the mosquito bites on your face.

    Rio, We are actually glad to hear that he made it. This is supposed to be the zenith of his career, but we were afraid he would not make it across. Can’t imagine anyone doing such a crazy thing, but he is 7th generation of high wire walkers.

    Now off to bed for us. Nighty noodles.

    Good morning everybody’ I can’t believe I am up and ready to go and the sun is not even up yet. Rise and shine y’all.

  122. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:31 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    Easy!…It was not “easy” for him…snort!…There were many concerns. He had to stop a couple of times because the wire was quivering too much…He had serious visual problems – can’t think of the word he used…the rocks vs the pendulums swinging and the wire moving. He did not relax up there at all…tense!

  123. SnowBella
    10:32 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    Umm…Macy…we are in the p.m, not the a.m. I think you may have slept the day away.

  124. Melanie
    10:38 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    Wishing I could be like Macy. Not though, so I’ll sleep now.

  125. Macy
    10:51 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    Oops. I guess no one around here is going to stay up with me so I guess I will call it (another) night. Great party!!!

  126. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:55 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    Rose!….Where in the World is Rose?…sniff!…She has been missing. Did I over-look a vacation notice or sumthing?…grunt!

  127. SnowBella
    10:59 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    Macy: Sweet min-pin dreams

    Rio: I was wondering the same thing.

  128. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:04 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    WhoDunnit!….Oh my gosh. This show could get quite dramatic…heh!…It started off sort of lame, but I think the fact the same people remain on the show and those who do not do well in solving the crime are targeted for “removal” in yet another murder mystery that the remaining guests have to solve…heh!heh!…This could get interesting…sniff!…Another sort of survival show I guess…grunt!

  129. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:06 pm on June 23rd, 2013

    ROSE!….Come Home!…snort!…We miss you!

    Good night Macy, Barb, Melanie,

    Snowbella and CHobbit,
    Gosh I know Dawson talks about her troubles with bugs when she is home. She has some funny stories about grilling and watching the neighbor try to work outdoors. She is in bed though so you won’t get to hear them. I am going to finish some more packing. The car is a lot more full than when I came.

    Nighty noodle all youse.

    Come home Rose.
