Franky and the Fourth Amendment

“Here’s the fourth amendment,” Admin says: “‘The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.'”

“So,” says Spence, “it looks to me that once Franky had sniffed out the fact of pot being in the house, the cops should have gotten a warrant, now having probable cause, and then made the bust.”

“Sounds right to me,” Admin says. “We’ll see what the Supremes say.”

“Might be fun to be a judge.”

“Better than a miner, to quote that old sketch.”

“What sketch is that?”

“You know.”

“I don’t.”

“Those Brits.”

“The Beatles?”

“No. You know – those funny guys.”

“The Beatles were pretty funny.”

“Which one was your favorite?”

“Let’s not start.”

    Well, we still think if the dog alerted, and they got a warrant, then they did it correctly.

    What Brits are they talking about? Monty Python maybe. They were funny, in a British sort of way.

    The much talked about MB planner has been shipped by Granny’s Gifts. Yea! You guys were a big help. Next year, Barb will scurry right out to the local Hallmark store and snag one ASAP!

    Wolfie, Just want to say that I hope I did not hurt or offend you or Mary in any way when I said I thought Pot should be legalized. I was not recommending using it, or any other drugs. I just thought that if the criminal element was removed it might make a positive difference. I do not think the more serious drugs should be legalized, such as crack, meth or heroin.

    Let’s face it, pot is readily available whether legal or not.

    I know you hate the stuff, and would feel that way about anything that so gravely affected your boy’s lives. So, again, if I made you feel bad, I am sorry. I wish them only the best.

    Good Morning B&M: Happy New Year!! Glad your planner is on it’s way. A lot of Plunderers like me, love researching things! It’s so much easier now with the internet.

    SpemI have no idea what sketch Spence and Admin are talking about, but my favorite Beatle is Paul. :)

    MagPie, I also think pot should be legalized. My Mommy says anytime she decides she wants to start smoking pot, she can just ask the first teenager she sees walking down the street where to get some. Since anyone seems to be able to get it, then it should be taxed and regulated like cigarettes are. I’d like to see the criminal drug dealers out of it and free up some much needed jail space. Many real criminals are let out onto our streets because there is not enough room in our jails.

    My thinking is that the problem comes in with the phrase “unreasonable searches and seizures”. The question is what is unreasonable.

    Anyhoo, loved the Beatles, especially how their music was always moving forward. Was not one of the FANS. My sister-in-law took me to see a “fake” Beatles group. The FANS were there. Huh?

    Lost my breakfast this morning. As in I THOuGHT I had put it where the Pack couldn’t reach it. HA! They tried to act innocent, but there was a great deal of licking of jowls.

    Will post the link in a bit for the race.

    This is for Riö.

    Love the Pugboat. Rio, I think you should reconsider on the photo with Beau. We know
    you’d be the better looking one, though I’m sure Beau is very handsome too.

    Sketch!….Does anyone know which sketch Admin is talking about this morning?…grunt!….The funny Brits could be Monty Python. There was also Black Adder which was pretty hilarious too…heh!

  10. Barb & Maggie
    10:44 am on January 5th, 2012

    Rio, In an earlier post we also said Monty Python. Guess they are the most well known.

    Sam, thanks for the comments. Thats what we were thinking too. The jails are over crowded and many times people are released who should not be.

    Did anyone see the morning news about the 18 year old mom from Oklahoma who shot the intruded who was breaking into her home with a 12″ butcher knife? She called 911 and asked if she could shoot, and was told she could not unless they entered her home. When the 2 men broke in she shot, and it is considered justified. Her husband died of cancer on Christmas day and she has a 3 month old baby. Wow, how many people would be that calm in the face of that!

    No offence taken, not at all. In a way, it makes sense to legalize pot. I don’t know how effective the govt can be in taxing the stuff though. Here in California, most of the weed is grown by Mexican cartels. They grow huge farms, often on forest service property, and ruin the land by the chemicals used. At the phone company, drug agents give lectures to the outside crews on what to be on the lookout for thier own safety. The farmers are illegal aliens, and they are armed and dangerous.

    I see the Pugboat is from Webster, NY – not far from here. They probably do their boating on Lake Ontario while I do most of mine on Lake Erie. We do have regattas on Lake Ontario at least once a summer and it’s hard to get there. It’s a short distance but those pesky Niagara Falls are in the way. Taking a boat through the locks in an experience.

    The Fourth Amendment – a most important one.

    We, too, think the British group must be Monty Python.

    Hello all,
    Dawson posted about a new show called Arctic Air last night. We would love to see that, but Mom says we don’t get CBC on our directtv. Do you think it will be available on Amazon Prime?
    There are so many Brit comedies that we love, but Monty Python is not one of them. Nor is Benny Hill.
    We are not sure who the Beatles are…isn’t that something we eat in summer? But Mom says her favorite one was John. whatever.

    Howlers & B: John our fav too.

    Barb&Magpie: Calendars & planners are an obsession with Nana. Certain wall calendars are a must and if they are not purchased in a timely manner become difficult to find. We learned long ago not to depend on getting a wanted item as a gift. Even though hints are dropped frequently, somehow the gift day comes and goes and the treasured item does not appear.
    A Critique: The movie vs the book. We thought the book was much better as it was well researched. The author has included many incidents based on true stories which are woven throughout the book. We think the movie was well done, but found ourselves in a constant state of comparison. Whereas, The Help seemed to follow the book, this movie tended to veer off. Pondering whether it would have been better to have done this in reverse order…movie first, then book.
    What are your thoughts?

    Wookie’s post yesterday was very good about the legal aspects of the case.
    I still stand by Franky.

    Mom was more a Rolling Stones fan than a Beatles fan…their music, not them, except for the drummer who raises old English Sheepdogs.

    Beau!….Here’s a sappy story about Beau. What a kiss-up he’s becoming…sniff!… One morning after my friend drug herself out of bed and went down the hall to take a shower, Beau got up and somehow found one of her new bedroom slippers….snort!… She puts them away so no accidents will happen…heh!…Anyway, he found one and took it down the hall and laid it up against the bathroom door….grunt!… Her mother saw him do it and thought it was “so cute!”….grumble!… And of course when she came out of the bathroom and heard the story, she fawned over him….grump!…Now, if I’d have known that’s all it takes to get a couple more pats in the morning…Naawww!…I still wouldn’t do it…snuff!

  24. Chet The Dog

    Admin and Spence are smacking their heads. Not each other’s heads, but their own. “We’re idiots,” they’re saying. “The cops did get a warrant after Franky sniffed out the pot. Wookie’s dad is completely right, of course, what with Franky providing probable cause. Can’t we even read the article properly? What happened to our IQ?” Smack smack.

  25. Snowhook Bella

  27. Barb & Maggie
    3:21 pm on January 5th, 2012

    Bear, Comments noted on the Christmas gift idea. We didn’t think is was a subtle hint, it was a detailed description of planner, but it still backfired. So, you are right, we will not offer it up next year as a request (and we will probably end up with 3!)

    Book vs movie: we usually like to read the book first so guess we have a bias that way. Agree that The Help followed the book more closely than Water did. Camel’s foot problem was not really explained much at all in the movie, and that was a real life issue. We liked the book better than the movie – it had more research detail whereas the movie focused more on the love relationship. Do you agree?

  28. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Behavior!… Like some mornings Beau will refuse to go outside when he gets up….snort!… He sits under the kitchen table and stars at those two while they are trying to coax him out….heh!….Finally her mother always gives up and goes for the treat jar. Suddenly, he decides he will go out if he gets a treat….grunt!…There’s not a whole lot I can teach this guy…chorkel!

    Rio: You must admit – that WAS a neat trick with the slipper.

    Melanie: Another great video. Keep ’em coming!

    Barb&Magpie: We agree. The movie left out important details and also changed a lot of things. The love story was a major theme in both, but there was a lot more going on that was not dealt with in the film. As a rule, reading the book first is recommended because the author is allowed the time to go into background & character development. Final verdict: the movie was good – the book was excellent.

    THE MINER’S SKETCH

    The following bit was performed by the late Peter Cook as part of
    Beyond the Fringe, a satirical British revue from the early ’60s. Mr.
    Cook often performed this monologue sitting on a small stool. He
    always delivered it deadpan, staring blankly into the crowd:

    I could’ve been a judge, but I never ‘ad the Latin… I never ‘ad the
    Latin to get through the rigorous judging exams. They’re very
    rigorous, the judging exams, very rigorous indeed. They’re noted for their rigor. People come out of them saying, “My God, what a rigorous exam!” And so I become a miner instead. I managed to get through the mining exams. They’re not very rigorous. They’re no rigor involved really. There’s a complete lack of rigor involved in the mining exams.
    They only ask you one question. They say, “Who are you?” And I got 75 percent on that. Of course it’s quite interesting, gettin’ out lumps of coal all day. It’s quite interesting. You’re given complete freedom to do what you like, an absolute free ‘and, provided you get out a two-ton of coal every day. But the method you do it, you can use any method open to you. Hackin’ and hewin’ is the normal one. Some people prefer the hackin’, others the hewin’. Some people do the combination.
    I’m a combination man myself. I do the hack an’ hew both. Then there’s running at the coal face with your ‘ead – one of the worst methods, know as the Bad Method of getting out coal. There there’s scrabblin’ at it with you bare ‘ands, the Almost as Bad Method of getting out coal. And there’s myriad others.

    It’s quite a varied life you ‘ave down there. The trouble with it is,
    the people! They’re extremely boring conversationalists, extremely
    boring. All they talk about is what goes on in the mine. Extremely
    boring! If you’re searching for a word to describe what goes on, down the mine, “boring” would spring to your lips. They go on and on! If ever you want to hear a boring conversation, just pop down the mine, there it’ll be. Things like:

    “Hello, I’ve found a bit of coal.”

    “Have you really?”

    “Yes, no doubt about it. This black substance is coal all right.”

    “Jolly good, the very thing we’re looking for.”

    It’s just not enough to keep the mind alive, is it? I sought solace in
    the printed page, quite frankly. I’m quite interested in the world of
    literature… But the trouble is, all this knowledge I’ve got out of,
    is useless – useless as regards to judging. They require Latin for it.
    I wish I’d ‘ad it because it’s safer work, judging, than mining.
    You’re not troubled by falling coal, for one thing… You get judges
    remarking on it. They say, “Hello, no much coal falling these days!”

    And what’s more, being a miner, as soon as you’re too old and tired and ill and sick and stupid to do your job properly, you ‘ave to go.
    But the very opposite applies to judges – so all in all, I’d rather
    have been a judge than a miner

    Intense ear rubs stop tails. Then as you finish . . . the tails start up again.

    8:22 pm on January 5th, 2012

    Dawson, That was vey clever, and also clever of you to find it.

    I agree with Wookie. I alway issue red alerts when the mailman drives up to the mailbox, although my barking always keeps him in his car and out of my yard. My other valuable red alert is when the disposal truck comes and they try to steal our good stuff that Barb forgot and left out at the road. I always jump up and down at the window (like Iggy) and then they get scared and drive away.

    Wow!
    What a tough little Corgi. Billings is where A Catty Librarian lives.
    Rio et al: I had to research about the judge and the miner. I hadn’t heard of Peter Cook but I did recognize his face when I saw his picture.
    The quote I liked best was, “I am blind–but I am able to read thanks to a wonderful new system known as “broil”…I’m sorry, I’ll just feel that again.”
    B.Stover: I did like the book very much. I did have some trouble at the beginning of the book because of Woolf’s run-on sentences. They were so long that I forgot by the time I got to the end of the sentence what she was talking about at the beginning. I actually had to break a few of them into sections! Either I got used to them or she settled down in the second and third parts.

  60. B.Stover

    That Ole is one tough little Corgi! Not only did he get out, but he found his way back to the motel. Not even their home, just a place they had stayed the night before! That is impressive.

All of us are totally supportive of AJ the Giant, Rebecca and the A-Team this year more than ever! ….snort!… I know it would have been even more special and fun to have an On The Spot Reporter and my friend is so very sorry about not being able to fulfill that position….wuffle!….But you guys know how awesome Rebeccer writes…heh!…She will keep us up to snuff! on all the action. I am pug certain of it!…chorkel! …So do not feel bad about the non-trip. Feel excited and happy that we are all a very big part of The Great Iditarod this year….snorkel!…I know I am!…Woooooooooooo!

    Stunned here with mouth agape. We are speechless with this stunning revelation.
    Rio and friend, this is very sad news for everyone.
    We know much you were looking forward to this trip.

    Rio – if it will make you feel any better, we volunteer to package up the Kats and mail them to Alaska to be the on site reporters.
    Bella – can we please have the address of a really remote post office in a really cold part of Alaska? Maybe one that AJ will be racing thru? That way the Kats could really be a part of the deal – we are sure that they wouldn’t mind being out there in the cold icey snow. Just cuz they are currently indoor-only Kats – surely they would welcome a breath of fresh air.
    Truly – this is an altruistic offer….just don’t anyone tell Mama. You know her – she gets all choked up over stuff like this.

    Rio. I know how difficult that decision must have been for your friend. Life is full of tough decisions, and while I feel bad for her that she will not be able to go (at least this year), it is not a decision that was made lightly and I am sure it was one that required serious and careful thought on her part. It sounds as though you are helping support her in this. That is exactly the right thing to do and I know how much she must appreciate that. And whether she is there or not, all of us Plunderers are now part of the Snowhook support structure and we will be rooting them on every mile of the race. Wookie

    Yes and we wouldn’t be as much a part of it without Rio and his friend egging us on all the time after Mr.Husky started us off.

    Thanks Rio
    Thanks friend
    Thanks Mr.Husky

    Night all

    I just returned home from doing hot yoga with my brother and saw the sad news that I knew was going to announced sooner or later.

    My heart hurts. It’s a selfish hurt—I was so looking forward to meeting a real life Plunderer from this here blog. Like Wookie said, it isn’t a decision that Rio’s friend made lightly. It wasn’t meant to be, but Rio’s friend along with all the other Plunderers have a standing, tail wagging invitation to join us for this and future races.

    You may not know it, but last March the Plunderers held me up during the late night hours when I watched, worried, wondered and waited. Many times since then, I’ve been held up, supported by and enriched by the Plunderers. The support you have shown the Kennel is more than I ever dreamed, and it is in the spirit of friendship and gratitude, that the invitation is made to each of you to share in the race experience whether it includes a trip North to Alaska or in spirit.

    Rio: You honor me by complimenting my writing especially as I tried to do some writing lately and have let my inner editor get the better of me.
