Fresh From The Oven

Here’s a little passage that got written yesterday:

“In silent movies note cards explain the tricky bits,” Bernie said, as we drove back into the Valley. “Where do we get our note cards?”

What’s worse than Bernie having a problem and me not being able to help? I couldn’t think of anything. For movies, you can try sitting on the remote, which boosts the sound amazingly, as I knew from experience, but other than that I had nothing to offer.

(This will appear in the Chet and Bernie novel after Of Mutts and Men. A rather long time to wait – but not for the latter! Of Mutts and Men comes out 7/7! And there’s a preorder offer where you get the new C&B short story, The Iggy Papers, for free. See link below.)

    Better Chet sat on the remote rather than chewing it up or hiding / burying it.

    Mr. Big and I are engaged in a test of wills over his diet. He actually likes his new diet kibble but was obnoxiously demanding more every hour by crinkling the plastic bag. It was like nails on a chalkboard and I would give him a few more kibbles. I woke this morning to this. Mr. Big can’t be thwarted !

    I am raising two German Shepard mixes, Charlie Jr. and Mercy. Mercy ate two remotes in about as many days. Under the guidance of my firm but loving paw, that has been corrected. Now, the Giant and Milady don’t leave remotes in jaws reach of Mercy. All my pupils are coming along nicely.

    Thieves!…I do believe I have seen those Thieves lurking around the Hostas…sniff!sniff!…Yes, I am sure of it! But there is no sign of a fresh Vat O’ Beer. This is very mysterious….cough!…What could this mean? To me, I mean?…wheeze!

    Fresh!…I could really do with a fresh Vat O’ Beer by golly…grunt!…My friend offered the guy who was cutting up and taking away some big chunks of wood a beer. I about had a heart attack!…gah!…Luckily, he said chainsaws and beers do not mix…heh!heh!…My friend said she knew he would refuse in this time of little beer….chorkel!

    Rio: We have indeed been amongst the hostas. Beau believes idle paws are the devil’s workshop so he assigned us to weeding. It is possible we found Beau’s last nerve during a misdeed during bible study.

    More to Rio: The German Shepard mixes won’t pull sleds although they do free-run along side the team from time to time. Wee is teaching everything they need to know about being guard dogs. They are terrified of him. We all are. Heh.

    Mercy and Charlie Jr. are intimidating in appearance. Wee is the real muscle. Instead of being on the glacier this summer with the Giant, Wee is on the ground to keep an eye on our Lady and continue training Mercy and Charlie Jr. Last summer, people snuck onto the property uninvited, unannounced and unwelcome while our Lady was alone on the property. Wee is on the job—-upright, alert, a real pro.
