Dry Gulch (More)

Ray came over to where we were sitting. Human fear has a smell and I was smelling it big time.

“What are you doing here, Ray?” Bernie said.

“My … dad sent me.”

“Colonel Bob?”

Ray nodded.

“I thought you weren’t on speaking terms,” Bernie said.

Ray shrugged. That’s a human thing I always watch for. It can mean a few things, usually not good.

“When’s he coming here?” Bernie said.

“That’s the thing – he got … tied up temporarily. He’d like it if you came to him.”

Bernie gave Ray a long look. “Where’s that?” he said.

“I can show you.”

Bernie nodded. Then he did something surprising: He reached out and unbuttoned the top buttons of Ray’s shirt. I’d seen wires before: that’s basic in this business. Ray was wearing one.

    Holy Moly . .

    Wires? Maybe the Detectives in Las Vegas are a "bit" upset with Bernie???

    Maybe the detectives are in on Albie's death and that's how they knew to get there?

    Pondering here . . .

    Oh, Good Morning Kirby!

    Good morning, Melanie! I meant to tell you yesterday, I'm glad Dan is home and that his Patriots won. Mom and Dad used to live up in Massachusetts (at Fort Devens), so they root for New England as long as they're not playing the Panthers. (Not that the Panthers have done anything worth rooting about!)

    I'm just pondering here.

    Good morning Melanie and Kirby and everyone.

    Good morning, everyone.

    This case is taking another strange turn. We here are befuddled!

    We saved the last chapter of Dan's book to read today. Barb showed off the autographs Saturday, but it takes some of the fun out of it when the say "What are tin futures" and give you a puzzled look. So many inside jokes on this blog. We sort of have our own language.

    Who is he wearing this wire for? Col Bob? The Vegas police? Someone we don't know about…nope not that, that isn't fair.


    On a different note, the cranes are flying right now.

  9. Staff
    5:12 am on October 18th, 2010

    The roofer is pounding right over my head so I will go downstairs for lunch now.


  10. Mollypop
    5:21 am on October 18th, 2010

    Staff – Thank you for that crane alert. We saw them flying and landing, then just kind of milling around. It was wonderful!

    The poor Kats.

  11. B.Stover
    5:24 am on October 18th, 2010

    I'm wondering if Col. Bob is literally tied up. Chet smells lots of fear on Ray. Who else uses wires? I don't think it's the police. And why do "they" want Bernie?

  12. Kirby T. Penworthy
    5:41 am on October 18th, 2010

    Was Albie "connected"? Maybe the Mob has Col. Bob "tied up" and Ray's supposed to see what Bernie knows. Although I don't know how concerned Ray would be about CB.

    Or maybe someone — Foster? — has Astrid, and Ray has to find out what Bernie's up to or someone will "off" Astrid. I think Ray would be more scared of that.

    Or maybe Albie was being investigated by the Feds, and now that he's out of the picture the Feds want to know who else was in his organization, and since Bernie's been known to visit him a time or two — not to mention finding his body — he's been fingered. And they're threatening Ray with an IRS audit so he'll cooperate, and since he's been cheating on his taxes, he's afraid. He's very afraid.

    Or maybe…the possibilities are endless, and I've gotta quit now because Mom is going to work and cutting off my computer time. Phooey!!!

  13. Melanie
    5:44 am on October 18th, 2010

    In apropo of nothing on the blog at this point . . .

    A mom of one of those darling little pups wrote this morning . .

    Ok, so this one is very scary. Sawyer came around the corner and took a flying leap while I was in the bathroom and flushed the toilet while he was airborne and while it was being used. Just picture that!

    Puppies are still puppies even though they weigh 65 pounds!!!

  14. Kirby T. Penworthy
    5:45 am on October 18th, 2010

    Oh,and Staff, they reroofed my house last summer. Mom was lucky because she got to go to work. But me, I was stuck here all day listening to the pounding, the pounding, the incessant pounding! But after awhile it finally cessed, so keep you earplugs in and it'll be over before you know it!

    Hi, Bee, Barb & Maggie and Mollypop! I'm sorry I don't have time to chat, but Mom's ready to pull the plug!

  15. Riö - The Evil
    5:48 am on October 18th, 2010

    Wired!… So Ray rides off with Tulip and the next thing we know he is wired (with a bomb??) and fearful…. snort!… I am having a hard time imagining anyone over-taking Col. Bob and tying him up, but if Astrid’s life is in danger I could see him surrendering to save her and his son….growl… Whoever they are want to get Bernie too …sniff!sniff!… I still don’t smell a motive for all this fowl play….grump!

  16. Barb & Maggie
    5:48 am on October 18th, 2010

    Did we know Ray was cheating on his taxes? We don't think Ray is there willingly. He is being forced.

    Staff, Are you sure it's time for lunch?

  17. Riö - The Evil
    5:49 am on October 18th, 2010

    Melanie!…snort! heh! snort!….That is a funny picture….heh! …I didn’t know Newfies could fly!…snort!

  18. B.Stover
    5:50 am on October 18th, 2010

    We have to back up a minute. Ray knew that Bernie was at the Dry Gulch. It seems to me the only person who could tell him that is Col. Bob. I think that Ray could be afraid for Col. B as well as for Astrid.

  19. Melanie
    5:51 am on October 18th, 2010

    Fowl play did you say?

    When did the chickens get in on this?

    Does the Dry Gulch do Hot Chicken Wings?

  20. B.Stover
    5:52 am on October 18th, 2010

    Another thing, Col. B is in the military…right?

  21. Melanie
    5:52 am on October 18th, 2010

    Riö, Puppy Newfs can be great leapers. On to counters, to tables and into sinks we knew of, but a fly by toilet flushing Newf is a new one to us!

  22. B.Stover
    6:03 am on October 18th, 2010

    Rio: I took the wire to mean wire tapping. You're right, motive is the thing we have to figure out: Why was Albie killed? Why was Ratko killed? Why were their bodies hidden? Why was Ray set up?

  23. Riö - The Evil
    6:13 am on October 18th, 2010

    Snort!… Fly-By-Flushing!….HEH!…Melanie, you were the last person I thought would catch the “fowl play” phrase!…wheeze!… I thought MagPie would see that one…heh!

  24. Riö - The Evil
    6:21 am on October 18th, 2010

    Stover!…Bernie only unbuttoned the top two buttons on Ray’s shirt!… snort!… Lord knows what that dude is wired to…sniff!sniff!… I can’t smell bombs. I wonder if Chet can?….grunt!

  25. Mollypop
    6:30 am on October 18th, 2010

    Yes, Chet can smell explosives.

  26. Mollypop
    6:31 am on October 18th, 2010

    Rio – Maybe you could too if you just try harder.

  27. dawson
    6:42 am on October 18th, 2010


    I'm flamboozled.

    Melanie: A fly-by toilet-flushing 65 pound Newf puppy would be quite scary, especially if you haven't had your coffee yet.

  28. Riö - The Evil
    7:00 am on October 18th, 2010

    Try Harder!… Said the poodle with the long nose….snort!… It’s all I can do to get enough air each time I breath ….snort !…Sniffing for bombs would require a large nostril capacity and specialized training… grump!

  29. B.Stover
    7:05 am on October 18th, 2010

    Mollypop is right. Since Chet went to K-9 school (and almost passed) he would be able to smell a bomb.

  30. dawson
    7:25 am on October 18th, 2010

    Fuggidabout a bomb – Chet would have smelled it.

    Bob is a colonel – that means military. Remember, Bernie saved CB's life when they were both in the service in a desert.

  31. B.Stover
    7:28 am on October 18th, 2010

    I know that Col. B is in the military. I couldn't remember if he had retired. I don't think he had. He was on duty in THAT.

  32. Siber-H
    7:34 am on October 18th, 2010

    Rio is correct…It takes specialized training to become a bomb sniffing dog. A dog that has been trained to be a police dog and find and go after the perps is not the same as a dog that has been trained to find explosives.

    I may have a long nose, but I wouldn't know the difference between TNT and a rose.

  33. dawson
    7:37 am on October 18th, 2010


    I think CB is still in the military – don't remember him retiring.

  34. B.Stover
    7:38 am on October 18th, 2010

    My problem is that I think a bomb would be a bit theatrical. However, if it is a bomb, why?

  35. Siber-H
    7:45 am on October 18th, 2010

    In real life, bad guys have put bombs on people in order to control them and get them to do what they want. That happened with a pizza delivery guys ten or more years ago and the poor guy wound up dead. The bad guys were trying to get him to committ some sort of robbery.

  36. Riö - The Evil
    7:56 am on October 18th, 2010

    Specialized!…. Now take butt sniffing, I can do that….snort!… I had expert training from Cassie The Butt Sniffing Dog back in the day….snuff!… And I can snuffle out my hidden treat every day…. gruff!

    Tapped!… If Ray is only wired for sound does it mean someone wants to make sure Ray doesn’t tell Bernie what he knows?… snort!…Or are they trying to find out if Col. Bob hired Bernie to find Astrid? …grunt!….I didn’t think he could make this story interesting again, but he has done it!….wheeze!

  37. Melanie
    8:25 am on October 18th, 2010

    Siber-H: You could tell the difference between a rose and a bomb, it's that you aren't trained to care!

    8:29 am on October 18th, 2010


    I just got my (and Dawson's) book from Dan and Zoe and Melanie. Dawson's is tucked in the special 'take to Minneapolis' box with TFAT so it won't get forgotten. Now I have something to read this afternoon.

    They should be done with the roofing today. Yippeee! Alice is in the back of the walk-in closet under the long clothes. Abbie has gone into hiding somewhere but I can't find her. Right now it is quiet because it is lunch time here on the prairie. However they will be up and at it again soon. The cats don't believe in lunch breaks and are staying in hiding.

    And you guys were right. I went for breakfast, not lunch earlier. Can't fool you at all.

  39. B.Stover
    8:31 am on October 18th, 2010

    Hey Melanie. That's interesting. Do you know how they train bomb- sniffing dogs to care that it's a bomb?

    We need to back up again guys. This began with Astrid going missing (or running off to protect herself). That part can't be solved until we solve other things. What was the motive for killing Albie? I think we need to start there.

  40. Riö - The Evil
    8:44 am on October 18th, 2010

    Motive!….Right after lunch!…snort!

  41. Mollie (a black pood
    8:48 am on October 18th, 2010

    The plot thickens… I guess when Ray said Col. Bob is tied up, that he really is tied up. At least Bernie and Chet are back on the case. However, I need the flow chart to remember the case.

  42. Melanie
    8:48 am on October 18th, 2010

    Pondering here . . .

    Lots of treats and fun, B.Stover!

  43. Siber-H
    8:54 am on October 18th, 2010

    Melanie, the problem with us Huskies is that we could never be trained to care.

    Wish we had a video of the Newf puppy flush-by. That is funny.

    I'm glad you explained yourself about breakfast/lunch, Staff, because I was just telling mom that we should schedule our meals like you do.

  47. Gus and BooBear
    9:32 am on October 18th, 2010

    Wow! Y'all wanted the Astrid case back and it's back with a whole new twist. What's going on here?! We know CB can't be a bad guy because Chet would have sniffed that out in THAT. Somehow Foster comes to mind ( well, mostly because all others are dead)….

  48. Gus and BooBear
    9:36 am on October 18th, 2010

    Sam, u look like a Halloween princess! Mom bought our brother Linus a pirate hat. We felt sorry for him.

    Would have loved to see the fly by newf flush!

    9:44 am on October 18th, 2010

    melanie, I do not think there is enough coffee in the world to prepare you for a fly-by flushing, especially if you were on the thone at the time, hehe, no flushing problems in the yard, but Annie especially likes to kick the grass back when she is finished doing her business, mom and dad call that flushing, dog style.

    Mom was almost late for work this morning because she could not leave until she finished Dan's book. We both thought it was wonderful, even the teary parts. Mom really identified with your diagnosis problems, as she went through the same type of aggravation including a liver biopsy, but luckily did not have hepatitis, so she is back in hypochondriac status. Boo.

  50. Barb & Maggie
    10:01 am on October 18th, 2010

    Rio, I did not catch "Fowl Play" because Barb shut the computer off and left for awhile. I always notice references to chickens, bacon and rats!

    Cute little Jackson (18 months) climbed up on the lawn tractor Saturday to play, as little boy humans like to do. Later Josh asked Barb if she had put the key up for safe keeping. She had not, and the key has not been seen since. So a trip to the Farm and Fleet was required this morning. It was a learning experience. I should have done a better job of herding him, I guess.

    Wish you had a video of the fly-by, but guess it couldn't be done without serious exposure of the person on the throne.


  51. Sam
    10:03 am on October 18th, 2010

    Tonight is the first game Molly is going to be able to watch. She's been on trips and had a lot of company. Now finally getting it all back together again. A long walk and then a long nap. She ought to be in fine fettle to cheer her Yankees on to victory tonight.

    Aunt Mollysmom said she is doing the same thing but adding a swim before dinner.

  52. B.Stover

    Stover!…Where did you get the info about the basement casino?….snort! … I don’t remember that part…sniff! …We may not have time to watch Rubicon tonight, what with the game starting at 6:00…grunt!

    Melanie!…Does Dan have any allergies?…snort!

    10:49 am on October 18th, 2010

    Kirby..you are a Kinsey Milhone fan too! We have read all her books, we like her note card system. And our late great-uncle's favorite saying was "curiouser and curiouser". If you read some of PSQA's interviews he talks about weak sentences that have to have a connector like AND. Now we are very self conscious whenever we do that. He says that if an author writes that way he just puts the book down.

  58. B.Stover
    11:03 am on October 18th, 2010

    Rio: The casino in the basement is in the post of June 14, "A Close Call" just before they find Albie in the freezer.

    Melanie: What would the "feds" motives be?

  59. Siber-H
    11:03 am on October 18th, 2010

    Gus&BooBear? Where did your mom find a pirate hat? I want one because this city is having a Halloween costume party for dogs. With more eyemake up on and a pirate hat, I could go as Johnny Depp.

  60. B.Stover
    11:16 am on October 18th, 2010

    I'm pondering whether Astrid is victim or villain.

  63. Barb & Maggie
    11:40 am on October 18th, 2010

    We finished Dan's book and loved it. It was more special since we know all the people involved. Barb is going to loan it to her daughter, but will keep the bookmark here. Too many little people there who could lose it (or decide to keep it). Thanks again!

    Are they playing in New York today?

  64. Siber-H
    11:57 am on October 18th, 2010

    Yeah Stover, I remembered you said he was a trickster.

    Mom said she could probably go in one of those Halloween shops that sprout up this time of year and find me a pirate hat.

    Yes, Barb and Maggie, the game will be played in NY tonight. Cliff Lee will be pitching!

  65. B.Stover

  68. Sam
    1:01 pm on October 18th, 2010

    Alice is soooo beautiful, she should be showing off all of the time – even when she has to go hiding. As you all know, Alice is my Ultimate Diva and I learned so much from her on our last Mission.

  69. Sam

    Siber-H, I have to be careful in case my family thinks they can now put me in dresses and stuff. Who knows where this could lead.

    My Girl came back from her college tour with the big idea that I need to wear a college sweat shirt when I come to visit and for sporting events. Well, we'll just see about that.

  71. Siber-H
    2:04 pm on October 18th, 2010

    Alice looks very striking (but pissed) in her shirt. Sam, I think a sweatshirt would be ok, very casual and youthful, but I would start nipping ankles if the family tried to go any further.

  72. Barb & Maggie
    2:34 pm on October 18th, 2010

    Siber-H, Yes, we think you nailed it. Alice looks adorable, but she is not a happy kat!

    Alice!… I bet her paw, the one not shown in the photo, has all her claws out to their full extent!….heh!… She is so pissed off you can see it in her yellow hypnotic eyes!…snort!…Don’t look too close or too long though! Poor Alice is being used as a human dress-up doll…snorkel!

    Money laundering sounds like a lovely motive, but who's? I so think that Ray is trying to warn Bernie with his words (without warning the people who are sending him in with the wire)

    I agree with Mr Husky. You must never think the Yankees are beaten. They have amazing powers. and if they get thru the 8th inning ahead they have…..MARIANO….

    What a guy.

    But Lee is looking really good today. Really good.

    Nobody has posted about the game in 30 whole minutes. What's happening?

    I was at a store today that had chicken costumes for kats. I almost bought one to send to Staff, but I just can't torture animals.

    On the subject of costumes. Two years ago, before I lived here, Belle had an Indian maiden costume. Mom thinks it would be cute to have me wear it this year. hmmmm, we will have to think about that. It might get me all pinned up, not as serious as getting all poodled up.

    Be careful, guys. We can't take the Yankees for granted. We must not wake the sleeping giant. After all, they have the best team money can buy. But the Rangers have heart!! And they are leading the series!

    SiberH, mom got Linus's pirate hat at Petsmart. It's really a dog hat, but don't tell Linus that. We'll try to get his pic tomorrow in costume and post it. We bet you would look like Capt Jack Sparrow with the hat and your eyeliner. Linus just looks like a mad, fat cat in his hat.
