Heads Or Tails

Heads we reveal the meaning of life. Tails it’s a snippet from Of Mutts and Men, the most recent Chet and Bernie novel. Here we go and it’s … tails. (Ha!)

Wendell’s RV, with the beautiful waterfall on the side, was in a middle row between a smashed-up truck cab and a pile of motorcycle parts, some of them red-stained. A group of women had a big shaved-head dude backed up against the RV. The women were all new to me, but the dude was Itsy Bitsy Litzenberger, a perp at one time and now the junior assistant attendant of the whole shed experience, which just shows you. He saw us coming and called out over the heads of the women.

“Bernie! Help!”

“Hey, Itsy,” Bernie said. “What’s going on?”

The women all wheeled around. We had an old one, a not-quite-so old one, and a younger one than that, although you couldn’t call her young. They all wore yoga pants and gold watches. I sensed trouble.

    Great instincts, Chet! Any woman wearing yoga pants when not doing yoga is trouble with a capital T! :^)

    Create a good day!

    I’m also wondering what yoga pants are.

    Good day to all.

    Oooo…I was so hoping to learn the meaning of life. Mr. Big seems to think it involves my life revolving around his; in other words, keeping his kibble bowl full and salmon.

    Today I had a bit of sunshine which was so welcome. It is the little things that make one happy.

    Did anyone watch the new All Creatures Great and Small series on PBS? I taped it Sunday evening but haven’t watched it.

    Hobbit and Rio. We watched it here. For devotees of the original (and we are here) the best I can say is that the jury is still out. The Herriot character is not bad but we did not particularly like how Sigfried is portrayed. We will watch again, but so far not the same. Although looking forward to Diana Rigg as Mrs Pumphrey (her last role before she died).

    Sigfried!..In what little preview I have seen, Sigfried did not look ole enough…grunt!
