Friend of the Month Reminder

“Last day of the month,” Spence says. “Last day for uploading a photo into the Friends of Chet gallery if you want to be eligible for Friend of the Month. Friend of the Month gets to be prominently displayed where Raksha is now, and the human companion receives a signed copy of the latest Chet and Bernie mystery, in this case The Dog Who Knew Too Much. The random number generator – if we can get it put back together – makes the decision. This month sure went fast, Admin. Do you think time can actually speed up?”

“Relatively?” says Admin. “Yes. Einstein proved that. And also slow down. Maybe if you reached the speed of light you could just about stop it, but you can never reach the speed of light, because as you go faster your mass increases, slowing you down.”

“So to lose weight go slow?”

“Don’t think it works that way.”

Welcome two potential buddies, Koko, Pearl.

    Good morning, all!

    Dreary, chilly, rainy day here. We are feeling tip top, but Pop not so much. He has the tummy virus that Mom had last week. Kat tried to help by walking on his belly, and now we are all outside in the rain.

    Howlers, we are howling ourselves at the picture of what took place…

    Interior: man in bed, moaning. Husky puppy watches in concern.

    Dog thought…dad seems to need my healing touch to his tummy.

    Cut to outdoors. Four Huskies stand in the rain, three of them looking dejectedly at the fourth.

    Oley, Sorry to hear about Pop getting that nasty bug. Hope his goes away faster than your mom’s did.

    Busy morning here, getting ready for a 2:00 showing. This is the guy that had all the questions last week. Hoping we get some sunsine by noon. Right now it is cloudy and windy.

    Rio, Sorry about your friend’s problems. Hard to find renters who really care about your place like you do.

    Later, gotta help with poop patrol.

    We are hiring Macy to write the screenplay when our lives are made into a movie.

    O.Howlers: That is a funny picture Macy has painted. Poor Kat.

    Barb&Magpie: Paws, fingers and tails crossed for you here. Let this be the one!

    A Good Saturday to Everyone.

    Card!…Hey! Look at the new Chet and Bernie business card…snort!…Now Spencer has one of his own and he doesn’t have to share with Bernie anymore…heh!…Kool! My freind says she could quill that card…snorkle!

  7. B.Stover
    9:19 am on March 31st, 2012

    I like the new business card. (I have a copy of the other one.)

    Good morning all.

  8. Barb & Maggie
    9:33 am on March 31st, 2012

    We have the other business card too, the yellow one. Really like the new one. Do you think we will be able to order some?

    Macy, we have enjoyed the beautiful pictures of the Bluebonnets. We don’t have those up here in the north country.

  9. Siber-H
    9:37 am on March 31st, 2012

    Good Morning All

    Macy, That is funny.
    Fellow Sibers: Hope your pop feels beter soon.
    Staff; Cool photo last night. Maybe I could apply for a job there but then I would have to pay income taxes.

    I like the new business card, too. Rio, if your friend could quill the card…fund raising for snowhook?

  10. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    9:37 am on March 31st, 2012

    Good Morning, everyone.

    Howlers, tell your mom and dad that you are going to freeze to death if you aren’t allowed to come inside RIGHT NOW!!!

    We have the old card too. It is posted in mom’s cubicle at work, along with our Snowhook calendar.

  11. Rose
    9:40 am on March 31st, 2012

    Greetings All!

    Oh: Sorry to hear about your pop. I think Kat meant well….

    Rio: Sorry to hear about your house. We are at a time where people have lost respect for themselves, and others. The Prof and I are very good tennants.

    I’d like the new card too!

    Mom spoke to the intake director and so far, Chad is doing well.
    From past experience I know that he can fake it for 2-3 weeks. After that, things will get real. We’ll see.

    Chad’s drinking buddy told Cody that he is picking up Chad on June 25. Snort!

  13. Barb & Maggie
    10:11 am on March 31st, 2012

    Wolfie, Chad will probably need to make new friends if he is to stay clean and sober. If the treatment works, he probably won’t want his drinking buddy to pick him up. Paws crossed.

    We heard that the big lotto winner (640 mil) is from Maryland. Could it be Wookie? If so, do you think he will share with me his new BFF?

  14. Melanie
    10:13 am on March 31st, 2012

    Good Morning all! Nice to have a laugh to start the morning! Thanks Macie and OleyHowlers.

    Soooo, Let’s see … we need to send a Newf Pack to intercept a certain CDB so pick up will not take place. The Newfs are figuring out which dog will sit on the perp.

    Riö, Pig Sty. How unfortunate. Snigglefritz. Carpola.

    Alice, I didn’t realize you were an Account Kat.

    YSAS and Zoe have taken the Pack off for the Walk/Run. Dan is writing.


  15. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    10:25 am on March 31st, 2012

    Melanie, mom is being dense. What is a CDB?

  16. OleyHowlers
    10:27 am on March 31st, 2012

    Wofie, we think that is a Chad’s Drinking Buddy.

    and not to worry…Mom let us all in out of the rain. We are now sticking close to Pop.

  17. Melanie
    10:32 am on March 31st, 2012

    Yes, OleyHowlers you are correct.

    AJ, on his Facebook, has his experiences and thoughts about the trouble on the ice written up. Very good.

    I’ve printed it out for Dan. I could also email it to people who aren’t FBookies.

    10:37 am on March 31st, 2012

    This kid is 17 and knows everything. It would serve him right!

    Hi everyone. It’s a cold, rainy, icky day here. Since Mama can’t work on her bear, and she is at the “waiting” stage with her clay – she is doing ( dum da da dummmm) her paperwork stuff. Yuck. She has to get hotel rooms for all their upcoming shows and schedule plains, trains and automobiles.
    She does find good deals, but it takes such a loooong time.

  21. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    10:42 am on March 31st, 2012

    Melanie, I just read it. What a great story and my respect for AJ grows with every single post. He is an excellent writer; he took me out on the ice and I could feel the cold wind as he mulled over his options.

  22. Melanie
    11:28 am on March 31st, 2012

    I love how the dogs come up to him for a huddle cuddle.

  23. OleyHowlers
    12:06 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Yes. Huddle cuddles always seem to work.

  24. Masquers

    Thank you for sharing this story, AJ.

    Your friends reflect who you are.
    When you change your reflection
    Changes also. As Chad changes
    His old friends will fall away.

  26. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    1:06 pm on March 31st, 2012

    That is what I am praying for.

    Chad’s best childhood friend went to prison, came home, found God, kept the same friends, and is now serving 8 years for selling meth. It happens.

  27. Terri
    1:10 pm on March 31st, 2012

    WOOF WOOF! I’m having fun playing with my toys in the sunny back yard. Nice temperature for playing … 45°F / 7°C.

    We are going to Montreal tomorrow for a birthday party. I love parties coz I get to see/lick more people.

    I hope you all feel well and can get outside to play in the sunshine soon!

  28. Terri
    1:14 pm on March 31st, 2012

    P.S. Earth Hour tonight!

  29. Tupper and Gilly
    1:18 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Score! Mama got a beautiful hotel on Cape Cod, right next to their show, right on the water. She got a suite with bedroom, living room, kitchenette, on the first floor.
    For $110.00 a night! (decent hotels in the area usually start at about $179 a night and good hotels are about $249.00)

    Now on to the show in Rhode Island…

  30. Barb & Maggie
    1:22 pm on March 31st, 2012

    We will be back later, gotta scoot for the showing in a few minutes.

    Wolfie, that is a sad story about Chad’s friend. I mentioned this before, but Barb has a cousin raised in a super conservative, religious home who got 5 years for operating a meth lab in the old family homestead (been in the family since mid 1800s). He got arrested over the years for minor offenses, but kept the same bad-news friends. Hopefully when he gets out soon he will be a changed person. His dad has emotionally supported him thru all the years in prison.

  31. BearSpiritDog
    1:55 pm on March 31st, 2012

    As the old saying goes: With friends like that, who needs enemies.
    The very good news is: Chad went into the program of his own free will. Our prayer is he will meet others he can relate to on a whole new level and if he turns his life around his brother will follow suit.

    Royal Mum: The hotel on the Cape sounds fabulous! Good job!

    Barb&Magpie: When you report back I want to hear Good News!

  32. BearSpiritDog
    1:58 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Terri: Yes! Earth Hour at 8:30 pm tonight. Thanks for the reminder.

    Acronyms!…People who use acronyms when they don’t have to are on my SOL list big time…grunt!

    Handy!…Someones brother is here fixing all the stuff that neither her or her mother can fix …grunt!heh!…Her brother had me and Beau really going there for awhile. He was on the other side of the fence where we could only see his hand underneath digging at the dirt…Yeep!Yeep!…Beau and I went crazy digging under that there fence along with him…Woooooo!Weeeee!…Dirt in the eyes, ears and nose…gah!…I don’t know how SiberH does it…sneeze!cough!

  34. Terri
    2:38 pm on March 31st, 2012

    WOW !!! A signed copy of a Chet & Bernie mystery !!! I’m not clear on the rules though. If I’m already a friend of Chet, can I add another picture or is that cheating? I supose my little pal Flower could add her picture?

  35. Siber-H
    2:40 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Rio, All you have to do is come back in the house and all the dirt automatically falls off of you. It is like magic.

  36. Rose
    2:47 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Melanie: Would you kindly e-mail me a copy of A.J.’s account?

    T&G: Great news on the room in Cape Cod!!

    Wolfe: I hope Chad will finally realize that he can live a better life than he has been. Praying for him and your family.

  37. Rose
    2:50 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Terri: That would not be cheating. There are some on this blog who have many pictures of themselves as Chet’s friend. Just makes the odds better. 🙂

  38. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    2:55 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Barb and Maggie –Sorry to report no big payoff here. Drat (could have bought lots of treats). Dad did splurge (or is that splort, not sure) and bought ten changes ($10) and actually matched the mega ball twice, which will get him $4 back, which is better than nothing, but that still leave him out $6 from where he started. Sheesh. (And who says dogs can’t do math.) Oh well . . . Wookie

  39. Melanie
    2:59 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Will catch up later after YSAS goes to the musical. Just had to share something that we saw at our small store near us.

  40. Tupper and Gilly
    3:10 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Melanie – isn’t that dog truck cool? We keep seeing it all over the place. And the dogs look SO happy all the time.

    Terri – you have as good a chance as any of us once your picture is in FOC. Good luck – although both Rio and Princess Sam have big plans to be selected this time.

    Mama crashed her big computer with all the travel sites, hotel sites and coupon sites all up at the same time. The poor old dinosaur computer just wheezed and seized and freezed (sorry Bee – but it does rhyme) So now she has to reboot and set the poor old thing up again – and this time not do more than two sites at once.

    We have everything that we can cross all crossed for Barb’s showing. She has such a pretty little farmhouse, we can’t imagine why no one has scooped it up yet.

    Rio – we are so glad that you are taking Beau under your wing and teaching him the finer points of pugdom. Maybe someday, maybe he will be as wonderful as you. But heaven forbid that he get selected as FOM before you…..

  41. Barb & Maggie
    3:16 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Hey you guys, BFF is a very common acronym. Everyone knows that is best friends forever. People are always saying they are BFFs. So there.

    House showing went very well, realtor said the house is charming and the lady loved it. Guess the couple is going to talk over the weekend and get back to the realtor Monday. Even if it is a no go, the realtor liked it, so she would be more likly to show it again to another client.

  42. OleyHowlers
    3:49 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Barb, we are very happy that your showing went so well. It used to bethat everyone wanted old farmhouses; when did people change to wanting nothing but new? Mom says she could never live in a new house.

    We think Rio must have been referring to CDB (which we like and hope will stick) and not BFF which of course everyone knows.

  43. Buddy
    3:54 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Terri, of course Floower should be a FOC. I…yes moi moi moi…won first ever FOM!!!

  44. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    4:00 pm on March 31st, 2012

    It is cold and cloudy and rainy here. Darn. I guess mom will have finish her book instead of working in the yard this afternoon.

  45. B.Stover
    4:10 pm on March 31st, 2012

    The purpose of writing is usually to communicate something. Acronyms often defeat that purpose so why use them.

  46. Steve
    4:12 pm on March 31st, 2012

    I thought BFF was best furry friend. The neighbor kid’s mom asked if we would take care of his ferret while he was on spring break. It has a little harness and leash and my wife takes it for walks. They look silly.

  47. OleyHowlers
    4:14 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Mom and Annie call each other BFF, and we don’t think Annie is calling Mom furry.

  48. Siber-H
    5:33 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Barb, This sounds promising! Hope so!

    Best Furry Friend does make good sense if you are talking about a non-human BFF. I am my mom’s Best Furry Friend.

    duh What does CDB mean?

    That is a neat dog truck! I think it is towing ATVs

  49. BearSpiritDog
    5:38 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Best Furry Friend. Sounds good to me!

  50. Alice M. Johnson
    5:39 pm on March 31st, 2012

    thanks for mentioning earth hour Terry. I don’t know how much we can do with my parents needing every bit of light they can have to see. Both are legally blind. But we can turn off all the ones we don’t usually use.

    AND! I will take the ice ball out of the downstairs freezer and put it out in the front with a candle in it. Dawson and I were going to make lots of ice luminaries this winter but it never was cold enough long enough to make them. A very weird winter for Minnesota.

  51. Siber-H
    5:40 pm on March 31st, 2012

    5:50 pm on March 31st, 2012

    That picture is of the sled dogs that are with a Wilderness adventure group here in the Hills. They are well behaved and cute as buttons! They also like us because we smell great. In fact, most dogs follow us around because the two legged part of the pack smell like the four legged part of the pack.

    Steve: I am really glad that my guys never got a ferret. We had turtles, hurt birds, cats, dogs, iguanas, fish and and and … but no snakes or ferrets!

  54. Melanie
    5:55 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Siber-H, check under your other name’s SDD

    Staff, I was wondering how Alice lit the candle …

  55. Terri
    5:59 pm on March 31st, 2012

    I wonder if a ferret would be fun to play with? I tried playing with a field rat one time but he turned around and ran at me. I backed up coz he was scary! OK, I guess I shouldn’t have mentioned that. Now Chet will think I’m a big baby 🙁

    I just came in from running and fetching my toy for a while on the green grass. Imagine! Green grass in March.

  62. Barb & Maggie
    6:43 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Cape Cod sounds like a wonderful place to visit. You know who would be surprised we if all showed up en masse at his doorstep, wouldn’t he!

    We are going to relax and watch a movie tonight. After scurrying around to have everything looking good for the showing, we are pooped!

    Tomorrow it will be 75-80 degrees, so will be a good day to hang out and play outside.

  63. Wookie of Chevy Chase

  64. Barb & Maggie
    6:54 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Oley, You are right about the country homes. When Barb bought this place 7 yrs ago, everyone wanted the little 5-acre farmette with the classic farmhouse. Now, the 2nd-home market has dried up and the retirees are waiting longer to retire, so this place is a harder sell.

    Rio, Is your friend going to say anything to the renters about how messy the house was?

  65. Riö – The Evil Pug

    7:00 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Question!….Here’s a question from my friend…grunt!…She wants to know if everyone is going to cancel their Mastercard / Visa cards because of the big humungous security breach on a ton of peoples’ personal information…wheeze!

  67. Melanie
    7:10 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Please check SDDs

    I’ve gotten hooked on “George Gently” BBC police drama set in the 1960s.

    YSAS was watching part of one with me and he said, “Not only is the young cop been in Harry Potter films as Stan Shunpike, he was in “Midsummer Night’s Dream” as Puck when we saw it in London. AND we got to talk to him after the play!

    There was another actor in one of the episodes and he was Arthur Weasley!

    Cool. . . Oh, Netflix streaming.

  68. Melanie
    7:13 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Riö, what are they saying about that company which got hacked? Do they know how or whose credit cards were hacked?

  69. Siber-H
    7:15 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Rio, We are not going to cancel it right now. We only have one credit card. Mom says we are taking a wait and see what happens attitude about this. I know we would not be responsible for any unauthorized charges on it, but it would still be a hassle to deal with. These security breaches are getting tiresome.
    We would have immediately closed out our account in one bank that was threatening to add a monthly charge for using the debit card, but that bank backed away from that idea.

  70. Gus & BooBear
    7:46 pm on March 31st, 2012

    I am going off to check on the credit card thingy. Many times over the past year when I tell Mr.Staff something, or say to him, “Oh yeah, I heard about that.” he will ask me know I know.

    I nearly always can tell him. They told me about it on Chet’s Blog. Snicker.

  74. Staff
    8:01 pm on March 31st, 2012

    Oh, and Rio. Yes they are. I haven’t told them yet because riding in the car for 6 hours is not their most favorite thing. So keep it quiet OK?

    He says he’s glad to be where the climate suits his clothes.

    Anyone want to guess what song that’s from???

  80. Mollypop's Mom
    8:22 pm on March 31st, 2012

    As fas as I can find, the stolen data was the info on the magnetic stripe. That means someone could make a card like yours. You need to check your accounts every day or so and be on the alert for a very small charge, usually under a dollar. The thieves do that to make sure they have it right, then they make a big hit. If that happens, you call the credit card company and they immediately cancel the card and send you a new one.

    If it turns out that more data was stolen than what was on the magnetic stripe, then it’s time to put a freeze on your credit reports. That is a must!

  81. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:31 pm on March 31st, 2012

    MollysMom!…Thanks! Thats the info we needed…grunt!…Even so someone here is trying to figure out a way to go credit-cardless…sniff!… If it werent for the Quilling Superstore and Netflix it would be a no-brainer…wuffle!

    We’ve seen those little amounts show up on our cards – first a small withdrawal, then sometimes a small deposit and then WHAMO! you get his with a huge bill. That only happened to us once – after that, we learned to check a LOT…and our bank is really good about notifying us anytime our cards are in jeopardy.

    And, you aren’t responsible for fraudulent charges in a case like this hacking either.

    Rio – ok, come on down to Cape Cod with us – the suite has a fold out couch in the living room. But no Beau farts, ok?

    Turns out we didn’t win the kajillion multi-state lottery thingie last night, or we would have just bought the whole dam hotel and flown all the Plunderers in to show up en massa at Spence’s house!

    I’m going where the sun keeps shining
    Thru’ the pouring rain,
    Going where the weather suits my clothes,
    Backing off of the North East wind,
    Sailing on summer breeze
    And skipping over the ocean like a stone.
