The other day someone with a lot of experience in social media asked how I handled sniping, quarreling, ad hominemism, and just plain viciousness on this blog – and was amazed when I told him that in all these years there hadn’t been any. Very unusual, he said. Why did I think that was? As is so often the case, I had no answer, but to all of you out there: Thanks!

    We have fun on Chet’s Blog. My favorite part is when we get posts from characters in the novels, as we did yesterday.

    Good morning all.

    Our favorite is when we need an alibi and Teddy’s Paw hitches up his legal briefs and says something like, “Mother, it couldn’t have possibly been my clients. They were behaving themselves on the blog during the misdeed in question.”

    Hey, nice picture OFA! Where was it taken?

    Spent this morning at the dentist getting some permanent crowns put in.

    Further to if a pet could sing, what would he/she sound like…When I saw the picture of “Way Too Big” Mr. Big the other day, I imagine he would sound like B.B. King if he could sing. :^)

    Rio, I am sorry you have been grumpy. Shall I send Alice down in the Lear Jet to cheer you up? She would do it if I bribed her with Whisker Lickin’s.
    A lot of Whicker Lickin’s.
    I haven’t been starting any seeds this year. I can’t believe it is the 9th of March, my father’s 95th birthday if he was still with us, and we have 2 feet of snow in the yard and about 6-8 more inches this weekend! Then another storm due on Wednesday! Sheesh!
    Like Rio I wonder if it will ever go away. At least “they” are saying it is dry snow and so they don’t think it will flood in Fargo this year. Of course they said that last week when it was February. Now it is March and snowing like crazy.

    Warm fuzzy thoughts going out to Amalia, Leonard, Gramps and the cats and dogs. Glad to hear the good news.
