Columbus Day Post: Down Mexico Way (From To Fetch A Thief)

I’ve been in dives before – that comes with the job – but never one as divey at La Pulqueria. Dark and smoky with walls stained brown and a floor that stuck to my paws with every step, plus a smell of human urine that was off the charts, if off the charts means the most powerful I’ve ever come across, except for that one time on the freeway when a truck carrying a load of portable toilets wrecked right in front of us.

There was one customer at the bar, slumped over it and motionless, his hand around a glass, drool coming from the corner of his mouth. We stood as far from him as possible. The bartender approached. She was hefty, wore a low-cut top and gold hoop earrings that touched her shoulders, looked kind of puffy and tired.

“Pulque?” she said.

“Cerveza, por favor,” said Bernie.

She opened a bottle, took a glass off a shelf and set them on the bar, said something in that Mexican way I didn’t understand. Bernie laid a greenback on the bar. The bartender seemed to perk up. She said something else. Bernie said something that made her laugh. Did it also make her lean forward, giving Bernie an even lower-cut view? Bernie tried and failed not to look; I’d seen that happen many times. He raised the bottle as though to fill the glass, then paused.

“Salud,” he said.

“Salud,” said the bartender.

Bernie drank, but right from the bottle. I couldn’t help noticing the fly at the bottom of the glass. Bernie was fussy about things like that. That was one difference between us. There may be others, but none came to mind at that moment.

    Sigh. Another day without finding out what — if anything — happened to Astrid. Col. Bob — haven't you gotten to the Dry Gulch yet???

    Whats a fly in your glass when you have Newf hair in your food?

    Obviously CB is not taking the helicopter to Dry Gulch. Maybe he has a Porche like Bernie's?

    Been watching the migration. Very pretty. Did get to see the cranes here and there.

    Hi Kirby!

    Hey, Melanie! I'll be signing off for now, too. Mom and my girl are going to do some running around — don't know why they call it that, they're taking their cars! — before Mom heads to work and my girl heads back to college. Nobody here but us kats and dogs!

    I second Kirby's sigh. Went to the crane site and had a crane's eye view but didn't see any cranes. I probably have to get on earlier.

    Rio is sufficiently scary. Especially when he grins.

    What a weekend we had! Mom and I are both sort of brain-dead or maybe just dead tired. I've been trying to get caught up on everything we missed.

    We loved it when all people came and now we love it even more that they have all gone.

    Sam get left home all alone. She may be crabby today, the little diva.

    We think SQ deserves a holiday like most of the nation (not Mom…she still had to work today) so we understand why no Astrid and CB today. But maybe tomorrow?? Or how about a whole new story, Chet? Maybe about ur younger days?

  10. Barb & Maggie
    5:58 am on October 11th, 2010

    Hi everyone. My girls Baye and Lily are still here so things are a little crazy.

    Last night they had Cheetos, pizza and ice cream. Barb said that's what Grangmas are for. She also said something about junk food, but I thought the Cheetos and pizza crust were great!

    Will catch up later after things settle down.

    Scary!…We didn’t know that movie was going to turn all X-Files on us….grunt!…We thought it was a psychological thriller…sniff! ….The ending ruined it as is the case with most movies.

    Needle!… My friend had to get a flu shot this morning… heh!… Apparently they have combined the 2 different shots into one shot so she got the N1-thing whether she wanted it or not… grunt! …Now she will complain all day that her arm is sore…boohoo!

  12. Mollypop
    6:56 am on October 11th, 2010

    Mom got her flu shot last week and didn't have the usual sore arm. Maybe this one was kinder and gentler or Mom is older and tougher. Ha ha – oops – here she comes. Bye.

    Mom just finished To Fetch A Thief this weekend. She said this was a very dangerous case and both Bernie and Chet got roughed up a lot. Bernie, maybe you should take Chet to the vet to get checked out — and maybe you should go to the doctor, too!

    We hope both of you are OK.

    Best wishes,

    Max & Buddy

    I'm back. We had a great trip but missed Chet and all of you

    and the baseball games. I have tried to catch up on all the posts I missed. I'm glad that Dan got out of that hospital and is safely back in rehab. That was scary and like something out of the X-Files.

    I didn't pollute, Rio. Mom believes in "leave no trace camping." She always travels with poop bags. We left the San Juan Mountains in good shape and ready for their long winter's sleep.

    Macy, the Rangers have one more chance Under the Dome…I'll be cheering for them.

    Why do we celebrate Columbus Day when the Vikings got to North America first?

    Welcome back SH!! Glad you had a good time. I'm glad you had a good weekend also Mollypop.

    Welcome Max and Buddy.

    Did you guys think that X-Files was scary??

  20. Siber-H
    7:42 am on October 11th, 2010

    Thanks for your welcome back Gus&BooBear and Molly. I may end up rooting for the Yankees, Molly (don't read this Rio) I will really be rooting for the Yankees if the Rays beat the Rangers, and the Yankees and the Rays play each other. Baseball gets confusing this time of year.

  21. Mollypop
    7:48 am on October 11th, 2010

    Confusing? Nah. I have been very focused for months. How could that be confusing? Try to see it my way.

  22. Riö - The Evil
    7:49 am on October 11th, 2010

    SiberH!…Remember our guy Brad Hawpe is on the Ray’s team….snort!…That’s why I am rooting for them…snarl!…and Never for the Yankees… grunt!

  23. Siber-H
    7:55 am on October 11th, 2010

    Stover, no, mom didn't think the X-Files was scary. She will read a horror novel, but only by the very best writers, which means the horror books she reads are few and far between.

    Thanks, too, for your welcome back.

  24. Siber-H
    8:01 am on October 11th, 2010

    Rio, I am torn. I know Brad Hawpe is with the Rays now, but if the Rays beat the Rangers, I will be really unhappy with them. I also have a hard time respecting a team that plays Under a Dome when it is a beautiful day outside. Baseball is suppose to be an outdoors sport.

  25. Melanie
    8:06 am on October 11th, 2010

    Hi all, Back up the mountain. Usually the drivers down there are as scary as a horror film, but they were relatively mild today. Welcome back to all our merry Wanderers!!

    Have a nephew who loved the X-Files, would watch them even when he was little. The only thing that scared him was the theme music before the show started!

    I also have a niece who I took to see "Jurasic Park" with lots of the cousins. I'd look over during the scary parts and she'd have her head in the chair and her butt in the air. Funny looking! She wouldn't let me take her out though.

    Dan is happy. My sister went to visit him today. I sent a picture of YSAS's new haircut, an almost crew cut for the new play, and a picture of OTAS's beardless face.

    Snicker. OTAS's F told him she had never seen his chin so while she was at work, he shaved leaving one of those soul patches under the lip. When she saw him she was speechless! Then started crying and laughing. I'm just glad he still has a chin under there. . .

    I love the X-Files….tv series not movie.

    Here is a word of the day. I wasn't familiar with it until seeing it just now. It applies to many of my students.

    Metrophobia

  28. Staff
    8:25 am on October 11th, 2010

    my guess is Metrophobia – a fear of large cities.

  29. Staff
    8:26 am on October 11th, 2010

    Hahahahaha BStover,

    I just looked it up. Funny!

  30. Melanie
    8:29 am on October 11th, 2010

    That is funny, B.Stover!!!

    I was also thinking along the lines with Staff. So nice to be surprised!

    8:30 am on October 11th, 2010

    Welcome Max and Buddy! Just a word of warning, but if Rio growls at you, don't take it personally. He can be a bit of a grump face. He almost scared me off the first time I posted!

    He has a soft and kind heart, though, and some powerful pug prayers indeed.

    Mom just finished TFAT yesterday. (She wanted to wait for the signed copy). Chet the Jet was fabulous!

    Bee, I'm glad you didn't mean emetrophobia, lol!

    Siber H: Welcome home. C. Harris blogged to you that the snow had fallen up there where she lives. I thought you might've headed up there to see it.

    B.Stover: Metrophobia – Like Staff I thought fear of cities.

    Columbus or the Vikings – there were people living in America before either of those landed here.

    It is Canadian Thanksgiving (we had the supper last night though) and so we loll around eating turkey sandwiches, pecan tarts and such. Yummy. Going for a walk now.

    Hello to Max and Buddy.

    Wolfie: Gag!

    9:10 am on October 11th, 2010

    Phobias!…. I don’t fear anything….grunt! … But that’s why I can’t leave the yard….grump!… Max and Buddy are one time posters – they won’t be back, take my word for it… snort!… We don’t get knew-comers around this here blog very often… sniff!…The last two brave enough to stick around were Kirby and Min Pin….wheeze!… I wonder why that is? …. snuffle!

    9:22 am on October 11th, 2010

    Rio – A lot of Canadians spent their Thanksgiving holiday right here with me. No offense, but I was wishing they (and lots of others) would just go home. Mom went to the chair lift with a couple of her guests. They had a band, a cookout and rock climbing up on the mountain. The line went from the chair lift, over the bridge, across the plaza, up the stairs to the upper plaza, and then out to the road! They guessed about 1,000 people in this line. Now if the Canadians just left, maybe Mom could have gotten up there. snicker.

  39. Siber-H
    9:25 am on October 11th, 2010

    Thanks Dawson, I'll go back and look for C.Harris's posts about the snow. If I had known that it was already snowing up there, we could have taken a little side trip on the way home. I could have convinced mom that it wouldn't be much out of our way.

    I'm going to look up Stover's word now.

    Welcome to Max and Buddy!

  40. Riö - The Evil
    9:25 am on October 11th, 2010

    Geese!….Those Canadians are just like their geese!…grunt!…They always want to be down here even though they have their own mountains to ski on and sidewalks to poop on!…sniff!

  41. Mollypop
    9:38 am on October 11th, 2010

    Here's a shot of the chair lift. Mom hoped to show all the people who gave up waiting and walked up the Mardi Gras trail, but the chairs make it hard to see all the walkers. It is 4,400 ft. to the top and no Ski Patrol to help if you get stuck half way.

    Another benefit of being a dual citizen is two Thanksgivings and twice as much to be thankful for.

    10:25 am on October 11th, 2010

    My dear cousin MPop, so I'm a crabby little diva, huh? I'll show you. I'm going to nip you in the ankles.

    My whole family left me home to come to that dopey Fall Festival. I had water, kibble, and a piddle pad. A friend of my Girl's stopped to see if I was alive or dead! Geez.

  45. Melanie
    10:26 am on October 11th, 2010

    Dawson: what is the typical Thanksgiving meal for our Northern Neighbors. (being much more polite than a certain pug)

  46. B.Stover
    10:30 am on October 11th, 2010

    Rio: What other country would you want to share three thousand miles of border with? (Note that sentence structure everyone.)

    Sam: I think that was awful. You should nip some ankles.

  47. Melanie
    10:35 am on October 11th, 2010

    B.Stover: I feel odd with you using that sentence structure. I'm wondering if the world is falling apart.

  48. B.Stover
    10:36 am on October 11th, 2010

    I just tried looking up my word of the day and it isn't in any of my dictionaries including the OED. It may be in a medical dictionary but I don't have one. I read it online.

    SH: Could you find it?

  49. B.Stover
    10:36 am on October 11th, 2010

    Melanie: That is something up with which we will not put.

  50. Siber-H
    10:44 am on October 11th, 2010

    Sam, They could have carried you around at the Fall Festival. You weigh less than a lot of womens' purses filled with useless junk, and you are a lot cuter.

    Molly, When is the snow suppose to arrive for the winter sports?

  51. Siber-H
    10:48 am on October 11th, 2010

    Stover, I was amazed because I googled the word and it came right up. It wasn't in my little dictionary, so I thought I'd give the internet a try before I went to another room and got a bigger dictionary.

  52. Riö - The Evil
    10:53 am on October 11th, 2010

    Stover!… I don’t like sharing anything with anyone!…grunt!

    Rio: LOL…but you have no choice regarding the US and Canadian border.

  54. Melanie
    11:08 am on October 11th, 2010

    Think I'm going to watch the two previous episodes of Rubicon to see if I can figure it out.

    11:16 am on October 11th, 2010

    Geeze!….I am bracing myself for Rubicon tonight!…snort!…It sounds like a real puzzler!…sniff!sniff! …I think we will watch both episodes back to back (hopefully) – per Stover’s warning… grunt!

  57. Mollypop
    11:19 am on October 11th, 2010

    Siber-H – You can unpack from your trip before you come to visit me. Skiing will start the end of November if the ground gets cold enough to keep the snow they make. We've had such a hot summer and it's been in the 70's, I don't know how that's going to happen.

    Here's a picture so you can see winter is not on its way yet. That's a golf cart right about where the sled dogs run.

    Looked up Rubicon on Netflix and saw they had the first season. Unfortunately, it's not available yet.

    Very pretty, MollyPop! Here at the top of the mountain (hills really) our leaves are almost gone. In the valleys they are two weeks behind us.

  59. Mollypop
    12:00 pm on October 11th, 2010

    Rio – One more thing about how mobbed we were. Were these the Canadians again? (Mom says I'm a troublemaker.) There's an Inn down the hill that was running a shuttle bus into town. It was a distance of .8 miles and it was taking 45 minutes. Of course, people got off and walked.

    The road coming from the North (must be Canadians) had a stretch of 18 miles and people who finally arrived said it took 2-1/2 hours.

  60. Siber-H
    12:34 pm on October 11th, 2010

    Molly, I can tell from that picture that the land is just waiting for the arrival of the snow and the sled dogs.

    The trees are pretty. No trees turning here yet at my elevation…almost 6,000 ft.

  61. Riö - The Evil
    12:35 pm on October 11th, 2010

    Festivals!…Maybe they don’t know how to put on their own Festivals up there in Canada…snort!…Or maybe they are tired of the squirrel skinning and frying pan throwing competitions that seem to prevail at Canadian run Events…grunt!…They are starved for real entertainment so they have to leave their own country for the real deal…yeesh! ….Their border is way too close to our country… dammit!

  62. B.Stover
    12:45 pm on October 11th, 2010

    I don't understand. Isn't having loads of people at the fall festival good for business?

  63. Mollypop
    1:09 pm on October 11th, 2010

    B. – It was great for business! Even for the hundreds of dogs that come here. Dog treats galore! Mom was annoyed that all there were was long lines. It was hard to get an ice cream cone.

    The whole town was shut down with arts and crafts and stuff. Food! Dogs! I have no complaints.

  64. Mollypop
    1:19 pm on October 11th, 2010

    Before you call the SPCA about poor little Sammie – she's exaggerating. Her family was here, but not her Mom. She had to wait for Sam's boy to get out of work. They left Sam at 5:30 p.m., had a sitter come to watch TV with her later, and then Sam did sleep overnight alone. She has a special closet she likes to sleep in when no one is home. Then in the morning, after a late breakfast, the family minus Sam's Mom left for the Bill's game while her Mom hurried home to the little diva.

    And remember, because Sam is so little and the hawks are waiting for her, she always uses a piddle pad.

  65. Mollypop
    1:21 pm on October 11th, 2010

    Rio – We didn't skin any fuzzbutts, although that would have been fun, and no frying pans were thrown. Of course, Dawson wasn't here.

    1:23 pm on October 11th, 2010

    Poor Sam! Why were you forced to miss it? It sounds like dogs (and we're sure princesses) were welcome. They left you in solitary !!

  67. Sam
    1:42 pm on October 11th, 2010

    G&BB, My family is very mean. You have no idea the things I have to put up with. They said that since I only weigh 6 pounds, this would be too much for me. (Supposedly for my safety, if I can believe that.)

    Yes, I did hear there were huge dogs there. Newfs even. And lots of Bernese Mountain dogs. Actually, I think I'm that same size so what's the problem? Dog abuse, I say.

  68. Melanie

    Dawson,

    Oh my. You reminded me of your pecan tarts. YUM-O

    They are so delicious. Wish I had about 6 right now.

  70. B.Stover
    2:56 pm on October 11th, 2010

    Dawson: Are pecan tarts similar to pecan pie? Sounds delicious.

  71. Sam

    Dawson, I've been through a terrible time and some pecan tarts would make me feel so much better. Send some now!

  72. Melanie

How else will you get the exposure you need for the big film deals…heh! …I’d be smokin’ a cigar right now if I had one…sneeze!…Whose yer Agent anyways???…cough! cough!

    3:45 pm on October 11th, 2010

    Siber-H: it's been snowing for days! Stood in line and got my winter tires on my vehicle on Saturday. Didn't I say I'd wait until the last moment and have to stand in line? Was there when the shop opened and waited ninety minutes. But today there were travel advisories and a lot of vehicles off the road. People are good at helping but geez, slow down! I wish employers would listen to the radio when it is telling people to stay home. Of course, school never closes. No snow days for us. Still walking my dogs. Why they are molting this time of year when they need to build up their fur coats is a mystery. Thinking of you….

  75. Barb & Maggie
    3:48 pm on October 11th, 2010

    Well the girls are gone and things are calming down. Barb and I are pooped out! Gus Gus came out to play with me today, and we had a great time. Tomorrow we will be back to normal. Tonight, it is early bedtime for us.

    Melanie: I'd have answered sooner but I was out enjoying the absolutely beautiful fall day. Very unusual for this time of year. We have the same Thanksgiving fare that you do as in: turkey with cranberry sauce, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, pumpkin pie (only this year it was pumpkin cheesecake – delish). At the Long Term Care celebration we also had moose ribs and marrow bones – my very favorite.

  79. dawson

    Staff: If you ate 6 tarts you would have a tummy ache.

    B.Stover: The tarts are like miniature pecan pies only the pastry is made of butter, cream cheese and flour.

    Thanks for thinking of me C.Harris. The snow must be beautiful. Wish I were there. They have school closings here if there is one inch of it on the ground and then the poor kids have to make-up the snowdays in the late spring heat.

    I don't know why us huskies shed again this time of year, but we do. I am and so are other huskies that I know.

    I bet they drive better in the snow up where you live than they do here. They don't slow down either here…wrecks everywhere, especially the 18-wheelers on the interstates.

    We had 75 degress and sunshine here today. The humans love it…sled dogs, not so much, but it is better than 100 degrees.

    I did see some snow in Colorado, but it was only sticking to the very high peaks.

    Siber-H – I have an idea for you. That picture I showed you where the sled dogs will be when snow comes – well you could come and practice by pulling golf carts. Right on the same spot.

    That would work, Molly. That would be fun. Heck, they use ATV's to train and condition sled dogs so why not a golf cart. I bet us sled dogs could get the golfers to the next hole quicker than the motor on the golf cart can. We could also get the people on the chair lift to the top quicker than the old pokey chair lift. That might make all the lines move faster.

    SiberH!…This is entirely up to Sammie and not her big cousin…heh!…Please stay out of my business buster. Here is an old song written just for you pal!…heh!heh!

    I'm Mister Snow

    I'm Mister Icicle

    I'm Mister Ten Below

    Friends call me Snow Miser

    What ever I touch

    Turns to snow in my clutch

    I'm too much!

    That poem could lead to metrophobia, Rio. I'm just joking..the poem is pretty good. I'm touched..no one has ever written a poem for me before.

    Am I the only one watching the baseball game? Thinking of Wolfie and Mollie (ABP) while watching it.

    Early!….It’s a bit early but we both agreed it’s a good night to go read in bed…snort!… Not sure what we are reading and it doesn’t matter cuz I always fall asleep really quickly when I am on the big bed…sigh!…I like to get way down under the covers towards the end of the bed…snuffle!… Although, I do tend to snore just a little bitty bit down there…grunt! …I feel safe and warm…heh!…Night all! ..cough!sneeze!snort!…ahhhh!

    PS: I did not write that poem for you!…heh!…Its been around for years and years!…snorkel!snort!snore…wheeze..

    Rubicon: I think the guy was a suicide bomber since he wrote those letters beforehand. He's the one they've been looking for. I'm assuming he blew up his boat near the oil rig???

    The important scene was in last week's episode when Will went to Katherine's by the back way. He told her about all the boards that those guys were on. They planned these things (including the current one) for money. Remember when Will said that oil prices skyrocketed after one of the incidents. "They hide in plain sight" and they're using API.

    Who would have thought that I'd have an opportunity to use the new word I learned today so soon.

    Good Night Friends

    Mom is going to read in bed and I am crashing.

    Hawaii 5-0 started out pretty good tonight, but we thought ended up lame. Hope it's better next week.

    Sammie, still think your people should have taken you to the festival. They could (and SHOULD)have carried you to protect you from the big dogs. If Rio had already been your agent, he could have gotten you LOTS of exposure there in preparation for any upcoming auditions (like for the Chet & Bernie movie!!)

    I’m guessing that metrophobia is derived from the Italian metro meaning meter.

    Hey everybody! I didn't get to post last night, and it's all Mom's fault! When she hurt her elbow and had to go to the doctor, her blood pressure was sky high! The doctor said she had to get it down — lose some weight and watch her salt. So now she and Dad are getting up at 5:30 and walking for an hour every morning. She's also reading every label for sodium — driving Dad nuts!

    Anyway, she was so tired last night she fell asleep on the couch and didn't turn on the computer for me when she got home from work. So now I'm catching up from all of yesterday.

    Not to worry about this mutt having metrophobia — and I think I proved that in an earlier post!!!

    Siber-H: Welcome home — back where you belong!

    Max & Buddy: Welcome to you as well! I hope you stick around. We need some new blood around here. Some of the old blood is getting mighty tiresome!

    Rio: Stop that! The reason not everyone sticks around is that you scare them off! You need to be nicer, at least at first. After that you can be your usual pug self!!!
