“Hi out there, everybody,” Spence says. “You’ll note a slight redesign of the blog.”

“Time marches on,” says Admin. “And only in one direction. Einstein explained why that had to be.”

“Um, right. Anyway, we hope people like it.”

“Are you going to tell them about the upcoming – “


Welcome Ginger.

Tonight at 7, Plymouth Public Library, Plymouth MA: Spencer Quinn and Peter Abrahams.

    Good morning, y’all! Is the slight redesign moving the book covers up top? Anything else? If that’s it, I can live with it!

    I wonder what Spence was going to say. Upcoming contest, maybe?
    Or upcoming short story (about Ingrid)?

    Still cold but sunny here. Tomorrow should be better.

    Barb is going to visit her friend Amy this morning. She has a litter of ES puppies that Barb wants to play with. She said something about puppy breath. Is that a good thing?

    Scottoline’s new book Come Home is really good so far, but then we have liked all of her books.

    Good morning, Maggie! Any chance Barb will bring a puppy home to play with you?

    Nice Redesign!
    ‘Morning All.

  5. Barb & Maggie

    Kirby, Barb says that’s a negative. She is just going to get a puppy-breath fix. The pups are 6 weeks old and all have been reserved already. I would love to have a new squeak toy, I mean puppy, but Barb says she is too old.

  6. Kirby T. Penworthy
    9:13 am on April 23rd, 2012

    Maggie: I think Barb’s age is irrelevant — after all, it would be your puppy, not hers!

  7. B.Stover
    9:19 am on April 23rd, 2012

    The problem with the redesign is that we have to scroll down to the middle of the page to get to “Recent Posts.” Why do we need the cover of the upcoming book on top? Grump.

    Good morning all.

    B: What did you think of Tinker,Tailor,Solider,Spy? (assuming you did see it)

    When we refreshed, there was Moe and Jack up above. Jack looks like a tri-color ES, which is what these puppies are.

    Kirby, Barb is not buying into the argument! Incidently, some older kids like the Judy Blume books.

    BTW, we haven’t heard from Steve lately have we? Or Terri?

  11. BearSpiritDog
    9:42 am on April 23rd, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: We noticed the absence of Steve & Terri also. Perhaps they are in lurking mode?

    Greetings All!

    What about the upcoming…..?

    Wondering if Rio ever went to sleep last night, what with his new computer and all.

    Rebecca: How are the new additions doing? And where are the pictures? 🙂

    Get out the shovels and snow plows. We’re in the middle of a big snow storm, for crying out loud!

  14. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:00 am on April 23rd, 2012

    Books!… I think the idea of having the books at the top is good Marketing strategy….snort!….After all Spencer is trying to sell as many books as he can to put food on the table for his family…sniff!…And I hear Admin eats a lot….grunt!

    Crying!….Sammie, I’d be crying in my beer too if it was snowing here…snort!….Beau and I have been enjoying the hell outta the back yard these days…wheeze!… He’s been showing me stuff I’d never bothered to check out before. Youngster!…grunt!….First he pees on it then I pee on it then he pees on it, etc. and on and on.….sniff!….We have loads of fun all day long…heh!

  15. B.Stover
    10:12 am on April 23rd, 2012

    I think putting the books on the top of the page is ridiculous marketing strategy since it’s far too obvious. The way it’s set up it takes up too much room. It’s too bad that marketing is taking over the blog.

    Sorry about the snow Sam.

  16. B.Stover
    10:14 am on April 23rd, 2012

    Bear: I haven’t watched Tinker Tailor yet. Did you like it?

  17. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:16 am on April 23rd, 2012

    Initially!…grunt!…I think people come here to find out more about the author and other books about Chet ….snort!…Not to talk to us per say …sniff!

  18. B.Stover
    10:20 am on April 23rd, 2012

    Happy birthday Shakespeare. (448th anniversary.)

  19. B.Stover
    10:26 am on April 23rd, 2012

    The books are advertised rather exuberantly on Chet’s Facebook page. Why do they have to be advertised here. (That’s not really a question.)

  20. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:30 am on April 23rd, 2012

    Spencer!…I guess to really know the reason for the change we would have to hear from Spencer about the re-design…snort!

    Short!…I hope he is hinting at the short story up above…heh!…That MCD(mind control device) is really doing its job if thats the case! Never ever has there been a Chet and Bernie short story before! Good thing Admin never moves the Quilt…heh!heh!

    Good morning. We are wondering where DOI is.

  23. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:35 am on April 23rd, 2012

    Discussion!….Boy oh boy what I would give to be able to listen to this discussion….snort!…Maybe it would help me organize my Mission Notes better…sniff!

    Author Panel
    Kate Flora, Katherine Hall Page &
    Peter Abrahams
    will discuss writing styles, character development
    and publishing challenges.

    The new design of the blog looks very nice. It isn’t a very big change.

    I’m crying because there is no snow here…high of 86 degrees. I hope it isn’t that wet, heavy snow you guys are getting, but I’m afraid it might be.

    Rio, Be prepared. There may be no Rockies game tonight because of the weather back there.
    The Yankees and the Rangers play each other tonight in Texas. That will be a good game.

    We haven’t heard from CHarris in awhile either. I’m worried about her.

    Yipe! It is snowing like it should have done this winter. It’s snowing so hard I can barely see out the window. We’re supposed to get a foot of snow.

    Last Friday, a mere three days ago, it was 76 degrees and I was reading, swimming and basking in the sun at the pool.

  27. Siber-H
    10:40 am on April 23rd, 2012

    Fellow Sibers? I’m wondering who DOI is?

  28. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:42 am on April 23rd, 2012

    Weather!…grunt!…Well, with the nice weather we are having here I’m sure my friend has something planned for us to do if the game is rained/snowed out…dammit!

  29. OleyHowlers
    10:49 am on April 23rd, 2012

    Sorry, Siber. We are wondering why Dog On It is not at the top of the page, along with the other books.

    Are the Rockies playing in Pittsburgh today?

  31. Kirby T. Penworthy
    11:03 am on April 23rd, 2012

    Drats! I like all three of those authors. Mom is taking tonight off from work to go to a friend’s chamber music concert — maybe I can get her to take me up to Massachusetts instead?

  32. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:05 am on April 23rd, 2012

    Aye!…Matie!…snort!…The Rockies vs The Pirates – weather permitting…grunt!

  33. Siber-H
    11:13 am on April 23rd, 2012

    Oh, yes, That’s it Howlers. Thanks. I was trying to fit a missing plunderer into the DOI.

  34. Mollypop's Mom
    11:18 am on April 23rd, 2012

    We need WeatherKat to help us out here. I looked at Intellicast and it looks like Pittsburgh is having heavy rain, and if the temp stays warm enough, it won’t turn to snow like we’re getting. Of course, they could be flooded out, there’s so much rain.

    The storm is stalled over us and with the counter clockwise motion is picking up water from Lakes Ontario and Erie.

  35. OleyHowlers
    11:22 am on April 23rd, 2012

    Forecast is calling for Pittsburgh to get 12-18 inches of snow today.

    Mom’s turning off the computer and leaving for work, so I’m outta here for now. Maybe I’ll be back after our trip to Massachusetts???

  38. Siber-H
    11:48 am on April 23rd, 2012

    There might not be a Rockies game tomorrow either, gasp…12 to 18 inces of snow.

    I’ll watch the Yankees-Rangers game tonight then.

    I hope Kirby can make it to MA.

    Hi everyone – we have some serious news to share.

    Dan is on his way to the hospital for some medical assistance. He has been having some problems this weekend and his doctor thought it best since they do live way out in the country away from the hospital.
    We don’t know too much more at the moment – Melanie just called us to say that she and Martha were in the car on their way to the hospital too.
    She asked for prayers for all of them, and said she will be in touch later to let us know how he is doing.

    We are going to start the prayers off here:

    Creator – we thank you for the gift of friendship and support. In hard times, we know the love our friends send us helps us survive our troubles.
    Creator – we ask you to help us send our love and support to Melanie, Zoe, Martha and Dan. We ask you to hold Dan gently and keep him free of pain. We ask you to hold Melanie, Zoe and Martha gently and give them comfort and strength.
    Creator, we thank you for the gift of friendship – we know that the love we send our friends will be felt in their hearts.

  41. Siber-H
    12:15 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    Amen, T&G You said it beautifully and better than I ever could. Prayers for Dan and his family are in our hearts. Thank you Creator for the gifts of friendship and love.

  42. OleyHowlers
    12:24 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    Amen. Thank you for letting us know about Dan, T&G, and for the beautiful prayer.

  43. Rose
    12:28 pm on April 23rd, 2012


    Strong healing prayers for Dan and his family. They are always close in our hearts. Just as we share in your pain, we share in our prayers that our Creator will look after Dan, and gently embrace Zoe, Martha, and Melanie in his loving, healing arms.

    I thank you creator for bringing me to this blog that is rich in friendship and love.

    I will continue to pray for Dan throughout the day.

  44. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:29 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    Dan!…Oh me oh my…sniffle!…Lord of All Creation, I ask that you give Dan comfort, strength and healing. I hold him very dear in my heart and want the best for him. Please give Zoe, Melanie and Martha guidance and ease their worries and fear. Amen.

  45. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:53 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    Stress!…I wonder how much more stress Melanie and Zoe can take…wuffle!…It just never gets any easier for those guys.

    1:18 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    Strong prayers here for Dan and for Melanie and Zoe too. I think T&G, Rose and Rio said it so well, there is nothing else to add. It does appear as though the quilt is getting a lot of use these days.

    Sending much love and support to Dan, Zoe, Melanie and Martha. Strong prayers Dan will be safe and well taken care of, pain free under the quilt.

  51. Snowhook Bella
    2:21 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    My heart is heavy with thoughts of Dan an worry for Zoe, Melanie and Martha. I don’t know what to do to offer comfort, but I do know that knowing Plunderers were praying with one intent at the same time during the race offered me comfort. I know we’ve said prayers already individually and probably have continued to do so, yet would anyone else like to enlist the PSPT (Plunderer Standard Prayer Time) with me tonight for Dan the Man and his family?

    Wookie: You are correct that the quilt has had a lot I use lately. I think it is a very resilient and well made quilt, yet do you think master quilters like your mom, Staff and Jasper’s mom could repair those frayed edges and worn sections? Would you be up for servin as Quality Assurance Supervisor?

  52. Barb & Maggie
    2:24 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    T & G, Thank you for the info on Dan. Our thoughts and prayers will be with him and his family.

  53. Rose
    2:26 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    Hey, has anyone looked over to the right at the Facebookie post?

    Masquers, my dear friend, I’m glad you made it safely home. I miss you and the other Smoochers already. Oh, before, I forget, the Prof asked that you bring your jazz guitar next time. He would like to trade some licks with you.

    With your healing powers, the Smoochers might consider tucking Dan gently under the quilt, and keep him company.

  54. Steve
    3:02 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    You will have to tell me what lurking mode is, so I will know if I’m in it. I’m just laying low, learning.

    3:06 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    Rebecca, We will be with you at prayertime. That is a great idea!

    ummm Rose I looked over at the facebookie page after you mentioned it. Could this be the story of how Chet got kicked out of cop K-9 school?

  56. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    3:08 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    Bella, I vote yes.

    I am worried.

  57. Siber-H
    3:11 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    Steve, Lurking is just reading and not saying anything…exactly what you are doing. Glad you showed up!
    I lurk sometimes at some of the off the wall comments on the videos at youtube.

  58. Snowhook Bella
    3:12 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    SiberH: Was it kicked out or unknowingly opted out of formal education?

    Okay—9pm EST (aka PSPT) prayers will be offered. I think we can use Stinky Mama’s prayer from this morning.

  59. Siber-H
    3:15 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    Could it be both Rebecca?

    Hi Rose! As Rio knows, I also play a kool sax.

    MollysMom: WeatherKat is looking into the strange weather phenomenon of late and will report back.

    Bella: We here are on board for the PSPT at 9 pm EDT.

    Steve: Lurk away, but don’t forget to drop by for a Hey now and then.

    Speaking of kats, my two and four legged told me today that Masquers is a Kat—whatever that means. If it means I could get more tummies and adored more if I were a Kat, I only have one thing to say: meow!

  72. Riö – The Evil Pug

    Rio, We thought you would like Andy C. We just got a call that New Tricks is in at our library. Havta finsh up Come Home first, but when we order thru the library loan they are for 4 weeks instead of 2, so we have plenty of time! Good deal.

    Hope we hear from Melanie soon.

  74. Rose
    5:11 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    Masquers: I am mistaken. I thought you were a jazz guitarist! No worries—-your sax would blend in well with the Prof’s Gypsy Jazz Duo!

    Rio: You must be in your glory, tippy-tapping away on your new computer.

    Belle: You are adored just as you are!!!!

    Hi everyone – we just heard from Melanie. she thanks you all for your prayers and support and love.
    Dan has been admitted to the hospital while they try to figure out why so many things are going wrong all of a sudden. He will be undergoing a number of tests, and then will probably be going to the nursing home to be watched over by medical people until everything is resolved.

    Melanie is exhausted of course. I did tell her that we will be doing a prayer tonight for all of them, and she was very grateful. She will be home in a while, and will probably need to eat, and fill Zoe in and maybe take a nap. She may or may not be on the blog tonight, but she knows that we are all here and we are all sending all the good that we can muster.

    So – guess we’ll be seeing most of youse guys at 9 EST. Talk to you then.

  77. Rose
    6:01 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    T&G: I may not make the prayer time (since that is past my bedtime), but I will be sending the stongest of prayers to Dan and the family.

    Rose, Sadly, that kat is in our Humane Society’s shelter. The poor kat has been all over the news here. It will get adopted and have a better life.

    Thanks for letting know, T&G. I know Melanie is exhausted.

  81. Rose
    6:53 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    SiberH: Poor kat! That fact that he is in your state got by me…I couldn’t get over how big he was. I’m sure he will find a forever home.

  82. Masquers
    7:21 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    Poor guy has to go on a diet first. Wonder what that old gal fed him?
    Bella: Now that my kat identity is out of the bag, so to speak, I hope Belle Starr isn’t having any second thoughts about our unusual friendship.

  83. Melanie
    7:48 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    Thank you for all your prayers and for the Circle tonight.

  84. Belle Starr
    8:33 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    I just received an update from Luna from the quilt. It seems she along with the Newf Pack have the quilt surrounded and narry a member of Dan the Man’s clan has even peeked out from under the quilt. I told her with nine Newfs and a Luna who would dare? She reports that Tenzing is diligently keeping Melanie’s feet warm from his spot on top of the quilt. Her feet are probably sweating and asleep, but Luna says he refuses to leave Melanie unattended. Tenzing said someone made mention of toast yesterday but so far he hasn’t seen any signs of toast, not even a crumb. He didn’t think it was a good time to bring it up. Belle Starr is at home in the Kennel. She lacks a calming presence that is sometimes needed.

    Masquers: I think Belle Starr is still a little uncertain of the difference between kats and dogs. She says you both have paws, tails and fur although your bark sounds a little funny. As far as she can tell is that kats like jazz.

  85. OleyHowlers
    8:34 pm on April 23rd, 2012

    Melanie, we are all holding you tight within the circle.

    Masquers, what unusual friendship? We here have a cat and a Kat in our midst, and they are both part of our pack and the best of friends to us huskies.

    Creator – we thank you for this day upon your earth. We are surrounded by your wonders, from the smallest singing bird to the magnificent mountains reaching into the sky. We open our eyes and our hearts to see all that is beautiful and let that beauty fill our souls.

    Creator – on this day, one of our family has trouble seeing the beauty around him. His body is weary, for he has endured so much. His heart is weary, for it has had to work so hard. His eyes are weary, for he has been looking at his life.

    We come to you with love and support for our friend. We ask you to hold Dan gently in your hands, and bring him back to the beauty of your ways. We ask you to clear his mind of the clouds that keep beauty from him. We ask you to give him the strength to find his way back to the path of beauty. Only you know what Dan’s journey will be – we ask that no matter which way he travels, it will be in peace and in beauty.

    We ask you to bring back to Dan the joy he felt when he held his babies in his arms for the first time. We ask you to bring back to him the love he felt when he took Zoe’s hand in marriage.
    We ask you to bring Dan back to the pride he felt when his first book was published, and the courage he felt when he served in the military, or flew his plane over the Alaskan wilderness.
    We ask you to bring him back to the happiness he had when he took his family out on their boat, and the laughter he had when playing with a yardful of romping puppies.
    We ask you to bring back to Dan the sense of wonder he felt when he viewed the world from the top of the fire tower, and the interest he had while leaning about life in Japan.
    We ask you to bring back to Dan the sense of peaceful happiness and contentment that encompassed him as he sat at the head of his family’s holiday table, surrounded by love and laughter and abundance.

    As these memories of beauty lift Dan, let them also comfort and support Melanie, Zoe and Martha. Let their hearts not be weighed down, but be filled with happy memories. Let them be at peace, give them tranquility, and let them rest easy.

    Creator – we have simple bodies that grow old and weary in time. We will be grateful for the time we spend walking on your beautiful earth. We ask that you let us keep until our very last breath, all the things that remind us of the beauty we have had.

    Creator – as night falls over your beautiful world, we thank you for this day upon earth. We are surrounded by your wonders, from the tiniest chirping cricket to the vastness of the star filled sky. We open our eyes and our hearts to see all that is beautiful and let that beauty fill our hearts, and our spirits and our souls.

    Dan!…Me and my friend were sitting here re-reading parts of For The Love Of Puppies…sniffle!…There is a paragraph that has always stuck with me. Dan is writing about the time he and Ellie are watching the river after a really big storm ….sniff!…”There’s something foreboding about the waters violence that holds me here as if it has a message about the future I can’t quite read.” Dan Monteque

    Thank you for that quote, Rio. Hope Dan is resting peacefully tonight. Glad he is in a safe place.

    Good night, all.

    Getting to the blog late today. Staff is still packing and shopping for the return to the farm.

    So sorry to hear about Dan. What a lovely prayer from Amalia. We will be adding our little bit to it. The bit that says. “Yes, that is what I was thinking.”

    I was so upset that I just needed to let off a little steam. So I pushed Dawson’s container of dental floss off the counter into my water. It didn’t float. Now I am laying on her bed feeling smug. Sometimes you just need a little action to make you feel better. heh heh heh.

    We liked the quote from Dan’s book. Rio, you are the lucky one to be holding it in your little pug paws. Thanks for sharing.

    Alice! When I first read your quip, thought Staff had written it. I’m thinking: Now why did she knock Dawson’s floss into the water?…strange way for a two-legged to let off steam. Now I realize it was you that did the deed, it makes purfect sense. lol.

    Yes Masquers. It was me, Alice M. Johnson.

    Staff wants me to ask where the Suds in Your Eye’s book (by Mary Lasswell) has gotten to. She thinks if no one else wants it, it can be sent home.

    Also Dawson’s copy of White Wings is to be sent to Staff after Rio reads it. Lots of books traveling across the US.

    Alice’s actions make me realize that I run with a dangerous cloud.

    Night all. Peace to each.
