Christmas Shopping …

… seems to have already begun. Here’s a short story stuffer for your digital stocking. You don’t need to have read the Chet and Bernie series to understand it. In fact, it could even serve as an introduction to the world of C&B. (The next C&B novel, HEART OF BARKNESS, comes out July 2.)

    What could be better than a C&B book or SS under the tree!

    Christmas shopping here is done!

    Create a good day!

    Good morning Wose and everyone. C&B as stocking stuffers, a great idea.
    Mellow Monday to all.

    Dawson, here’s the link to the Buffalo News birthday article.

    Pat’s sister, Erica Kane (Mom must have loved Susan Lucci), works for Ellicott Development and frequently shows apartments in my building. She looks just like Pat but has long blonde hair.

    The Chet and Bernie short stories rock!

    Mollypop’s and Loulou’s Mom: Thanks for the interesting article! Erica Kane!

    I found an old book of Dad’s – logic puzzles. Here’s one that seems easy (because I looked at the answer already which bypassed that brain exploding action):

    Buying Dog Biscuits –
    A salesman packs his dog biscuits in boxes containing 16, 17, 23, 24, 39, and 40 lbs. respectively, and he will not sell them in any other way, or break into a box. A customer asked to be supplied with 100 pounds of the biscuits.
    Could you have carried out the order? If not, how near could you have got to making up the 100 lbs.? Of course, he has an ample supply of boxes of each size.

    Hmmm…Pondering Dawson’s riddle. All these riddles are hurting my pointy head.

    Dawson: How about this:
    one 40 Pound Box
    One 39 Pound Box
    One 23 Pound Box

    Total Weight = 102 Pounds

    BearSpiritDog: That is awfully close, isn’t it? The book comes up with a different answer though. Heh! Answer will be given…tomorrow!

    Wose: I sent a check out to you today. By dogsled. Don’t hold your breath! I will send the current addresses you need by email this week.

    Dawson: If the Thieves! are part of that dogsled, I might never see the check! :^)

    Hint: The correct answer does add up exactly to 100.

    Wose: Lol!

    Why would anyone want just 100 pounds of dog biscuits? It doesn’t make sense. We prefer logic problems that are realistic.
