Down on the Border

Mexico came up this week on account of Cinco de Mayo and we posted a little snippet from To Fetch A Thief. Mexico factors into the Chet and Bernie series and so do border towns. This is from Heart of Barkness:

Tesabe looked to be very small, with just one paved street and a few dirt roads running off it. We rode up a steep, curving hill, not seeing a single human, member of the nation within, or even a chicken, and this was the kind of place where you’d expect a chicken or two. I didn’t even hear any buzzing flies. They called this a border town?

    Good day to everyone!
    Maybe it’s a border town because it borders on being a town.

    Today!…Me and my friend got a few things done in the garden…snort!…Finally the weather is warming up a bit. Her and I were able to get the bird bath out of the patio and hammered into place between the hostas, which are just coming up!..snuffle!…Beau’s hosta, the one he peed on everyday, is really coming out. It will be a monster this year!…yeep!…Then using the dolly we were able to move the concrete statue of a little boy and a frog sitting on a bowl into place under the bird bath…wheeze!…That thing weighs a TON!…grunt!.. She will put some colorful plants in the boys bowl. Then she and I went to a garden center and she bought potting soil (15.00 a bag these days!) and some geraniums and 4 Celebrity tomato plants…gurgle!…Why is everything so expensive?? She said she did not have any extra money to buy me a slim jim…grump!
