Happy Thanksgiving!

Rick Torres crouched under a strip of tape, came toward us, shook hands with Bernie. “Hey, Chet,” he said, and gave me a pat. “Lookin’ good. Is he still growing, Bernie?”

“Hardly seems possible,” Bernie said. “This is my son Charlie. Shake hands with Sergeant Torres, Charlie.”

Rick held out his hand. Charlie gazed down at the ground.

“I won’t bite,” Rick said. Of course he wouldn’t! Hardly any humans did, their little teeth not being much of a weapon. I did remember a perp named Clancy Green chomping on some other perp’s arm, but that was on a Halloween night, the only holiday I don’t like – Halloween brings out the worst in people, Bernie says. Thanksgiving is my favorite, except for that one time with the drumstick incident, maybe a story for another day.

    Spence. If you are listening I think I am detecting a groundswell of support for another short story. — perhaps you could call it The Curious Incident of the Drumstick in the Night. Inquiring minds definitely want to know more.

    And a Happy Thanksgiving to all, so sayeth Teddy RRR.

    Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

    I can report to the truth that I ate the stuffing Mother made yesterday. It was delish. I think Mother is sweet on Ole Doc. Why else would she leave it within my reach?

    I can also report that the Thieves who are still locked in Mother Jail paid me in Slim Jims for access to the TV remote. They’ve been watching Holiday Baking Championship. They have also been watching a Friend bake and cook and wotnot. They think she should go on the show. I think she should have me as her taste tester.

    RIO! I hope that photo of you found! It would be the most prized photo of the calendar! And what of Beau’s puppy picture?

    Attendant aspires that I looks like this for my calendar photo but no amount of brushing is turning me into a clean and smooth kitty. My fur is long and as my attendant says, “you look like something the cat drug home.” The bigger problem is that I turn my head away when the shutter clicks so there is a lot of blurry and unfocused images. Not to mention the occasional errant finger in the photo. Attendant is having another Coke & Boubon. Twice in three days. I sense a drinking problem developing.

    We have our paws in Beau’s puppy photo, but we are currently ensconced in Mother Jail. We are afraid to be on the outside until Beau forgets about the Beausmobile. Alice M. was released from Mother Jail shortly after our arrest. Something about good behavior and time served.
