Most Recent Thanksgiving Reference in the Chet And Bernie Series

“Hello and goodbye,” said Ramon.

He was leaving? I had just enough time to think: good news. And then Ramon had a knife in his hand. There are all sorts of knives – for butter, for steak, for carving the turkey on Thanksgiving. This particular kind of knife – all steel, thin and flat, with a round hole at the top of the grip – was a kind I’d seen before – and seen in action – on a visit to Otis DeWayne, our weapons expert. What Ramon had in his hand was a throwing knife, which he now drew back behind his ear with the same soft easy grip Otis had used before letting it go and popping a pink balloon hanging from a branch in his yard. Pop went the balloon, shriveling down to nothing, and the knife sank deep and quivering into the tree. Those liquidy dark eyes locked on Bernie. Shriveling down to nothing? No!

– from A Fistful of Collars.

Welcome Becket, Odin & Mr. Claus, eager pup.

    Chet, I’m glad you didn’t like the idea of Bernie “Shriveling down to nothing?”

    Good morning all. Lake effect snow, 24 degrees, wind chill 10 degrees.

    Thanks for the snow, MollyPop’s Mom and Sam! BTW, the ski area looked like it was on fire. Pretty cool.

    Jeeze, those Irish must have really celebrated all night.

    I found this video on another site that I look at. This is the ultimate girl toy. At least from my point of view and you guys know I’m a bit geeky. After watching the video I checked out her Kickstarter account and not only is she fully funded, she has almost doubled her funding!

    We don’t have snow yet here in Buffalo. Well, actually I’m in Amherst which is a northern suburb. The snow is still to the south but is starting to shift north. It could stay with Molly’s Mom and I’d be happy.

    Melanie, we watched that video. What a wonderful, fun-looking toy! We wanted to buy that for our cousin Kendall for Christmas, but the estimated delivery date is April 2013. We’ll keep it in mind for her birthday.

    We Howlers are tippy toeing around because the rents had a Late Night! Wooooo!

    Good going Chet.

    A sprinkling of snow here.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning all. Barb is heading out for a quick trip to the grocery. She is going to make some cookies today and needs baking soda and pecans.

    Melanie, I know this is trival, but Barb said last night that a CSA is “community sustainable agriculture”. Actually, it is “community supported agriculture” (which is sutainable).
    Kelly was involved in one last year and found that she got to try a lot of veggies that she didn’t usually buy. Usually you sign up for the season, pay a set price, then go pick up your boxed seasonal veggies once a week. It was fun.

    Packing!…My friend has been busy packing up all her little projects in little boxes..snort!…Beau and I are helping. He always ends up with tape on his head…heh!…I like to sniffle around the boxes and blow snot into them. So all youse guys who bought stuff might have an extra surprise when you open the package…chufffle!

    Greetings!

    MollyPop’s Mom, your picture from last night is beautiful!

    Rio! Now I am going to have to go back and watch all our Hitchcock films and look for Chet references. As the others said, Hitch is always spotted within the first ten minutes of his films. Rio! I hope there are no pug boogers in my box. Remember, You are my very best pug friend.

    Oleys: Whoooooohoooooooo!

    11:32 am on November 25th, 2012

    MagPie, my sister did an extra deal so she is also getting root vegetables through February. Very nice.

    OleyHowlers, she got her funding in two months and then started production. Totally awesome.

    Trying to rest today. So, of course, YSAS calls because he’s on break and wants me to do things with headshots. This is the same time Zoë comes in to ask for help doing something and the entire Pack decides to bark at some person practicing cross country skiing on our road. Do they go out to bark? Noooooo.

    So everyone is now settled and I’m going to try to rest again. snicker

    We’re back! Kind of…at least in body, if not in mind.

    Howlers! Congrats on the big win!
    Mollys Mom: Snow! Wooooo!

    Okay. That’s all the excitement I can take for now. Time for a kat nap.

    Does “cyber Monday” refer to online shopping? (Good grief!)

    Welcome back Masquers.

    OOOO Pomegranate Jelly. YUM. thanks Wolfie! Rebecca I have been doing some more shopping.

  14. Mollypop's Mom
    12:47 pm on November 25th, 2012

    B., Cyber Monday is online and is an extension of Black Friday shopping, only now people have gone back to work and are ordering from their desks. Most places offer free shipping.

    This is the busiest Internet day of the year and also when many web sites crash because they weren’t adequately prepared for the load.

    This is where mom and her mom are going this afternoon. In Texas we have to get our snow where we can find it. This was our girl Angie’s Mother’s Day gift to them both. The Bass Performance Hall is quite posh, or so I’ve heard. Nobody has invited me.

    The FWSO’s annual holiday pops, with favorite Christmas carols, a bell choir, a family sing-along, a cameo by Santa, and snow in Bass Hall.

    Maybe soon they will take us four-leggeds to Fort Woof. We already missed Barktoberfest. Fort Woof is the big dog park. Maybe Santa Paws will be there.

    It doesn’t get any better than this.

    Siber-H – Here is a home snow maker for your backyard. No assembly required. Just connect the hose and make your own snow.

    Macy, is this the Bass Hall of which you write? I like the figures tooting their horns.
    Sounds like a wonderful time.

    My luggage is still traveling {{{sigh}}}. The planes returning to Alaska are full and my suitcases don’t make it on due to “weight and balance issues.” Today and tomorrow are heavy travel days so I am not hopeful. I would be fine but I need my medicines.

    It is hard going from +65 to -30 and I need to re-acclimate my body to an Alaskan winter all over again. Right now I am wearing two layers and that is *inside* a heated house! Off to light a candle for my luggage….

  20. Melanie
    1:39 pm on November 25th, 2012

    C.Hobbit, we will put out a candle for your luggage. Jeeze Louise, maybe they could send it by dog sled.

  21. Masquers
    1:45 pm on November 25th, 2012

    C.Hobbit: Adding a lighted candle to yours and Melanie’s.
    After spending a good portion of a vacation without, Mom has now vowed never again to trust the airlines with her luggage. It is now carry-on or nothing.

  22. Siber-H
    1:45 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Mollypop’s Mom, Wow! I want one! It is only $395.00
    Maybe mom wouldn’t notice that charge on her credit card.
    I could just hide it from her in the garage and bring it out on the few days it is cold enough here to make snow. I would just explain to her that a little cloud came over and dumped that snow in our backyard.

  23. Siber-H
    1:51 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Masquers, Welcome back!

    We will also light a candle for C.Harris’s luggage, and T&G’s gramp’s glasses.

    Fellow Sibers and Rio, I read last night’s posts. I am going to watch the next football game the Irish play.

  24. Barb & Maggie
    1:54 pm on November 25th, 2012

    We are also going to relax for a bit. Got the cookie baking supplies, have the butter out to soften, and have painted the kitchen cabinet island. We think it looks great. Will wait to post a shot when the new counter top is installed around 11/5 or 6.

    Are finishing up Grisham’s King of Torts. A pretty good read. Hahahha, Bee.

  25. Melanie
    2:10 pm on November 25th, 2012

    I wish I had as much energy as Barb.

    Siber-H, it is a known fact that clouds will dump snow only in one yard. I say go for it.

    Resting now. Feels good.

    YSAS is working today. Wanted me to send some emails ASAP. I reminded him it was Sunday and the end of Thanksgiving weekend and perhaps, just perhaps, these people weren’t working.

    I don’t have to write the emails until later. snicker

    GAH!…My friend looks frazzled…sniff!sniff!…Her mother went with her to my other house. All my friend wanted to do was put some wood glue on a part of the frame around a window sill…grunt!…Well her mother pulled the curtain bracket out of the wall when she pulled (yanked) the curtains back and then continued to muck up the bracket with the wood glue ….wheeze!…Finally they got it back in place but have to let it all dry before she can GO OVER AGAIN and put the curtains back up…grump!…Then to add to the misery they went to the grocery store where her mother took FOREVER! She is the worst person to go shopping with….grump! …So half the day is shot and nothing has been done and someone is very grumpy indeed.

  27. B.Stover
    2:15 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Thank you Mollypop’s Mom.

    B&M: Sigh….

  28. Mollypop's Mom
    2:23 pm on November 25th, 2012

    I took a little walk to get some fresh air. The snow is over my boots making it hard walking. Everyone here is waiting to ski! If this keeps up, maybe by the weekend.

  29. Melanie
    2:33 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Where’s Dawson? Is she sleeping in? Did she have a mishap with a moose? Is she shoveling snow?

    Anywoof, Dawson, please check your SDD.

  30. SnowBella
    2:35 pm on November 25th, 2012

    We’ll add our blow torch for CHarris’ luggage.

    I have it on good advice from a certain Pug that I am to come up for air from building the auction site. I can’t seem to get the right polish on the auction gavel. Plus, the tanker of kawfee has been delayed on it’s way to auction central. On the plus side, the tanker of beer and tractor trailer of hot wings is right on schedule.

  31. Masquers
    2:55 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Ah, yes…the glasses for Gramp.
    T&G: Are they coming anytime soon?

    Bella: Once again. A fine job. You deserve a break today.

  32. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    3:16 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Wow, Melanie, mom has a whole crop of 4 and 5 year old great nieces! Goldie’s will make perfect birthday presents!

  33. Barb & Maggie
    3:18 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Off to do some cookie making. These are chocolate chip, so Barb says they are off limits for moi.

    It is freezing outside and a little boy just went by on a scooter wearing shorts and a tee shirt! Whoa!

  34. BearSpiritDog
    3:34 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: Obviously those young’uns have a different thermostat setting.

    Game!…GAH!…Now her mother wants to go back to my other house and help someone hang the curtains…grump!…Plus, she wants to go before the football game is over and that is making my friend mad…grung!…There is 2 minutes left to play – but she is already backing her car out of the garage…yeesh!…Her mother does not understand football time…heh!

  37. Kat
    4:01 pm on November 25th, 2012

    We here have just put candles in every single window. Hope that helps C.Hobbit find her luggage. Mom also put out a really big pot of all RED flowers by the door! For me me me!
    Our living room is full of boxes and rolled up newspapers and stuff. Furniture has been rearranged. It’s crazy! Mom said this all happened last year, but I don’t remember.

  38. Barb & Maggie
    4:17 pm on November 25th, 2012

    We will light a candle too. Nice smelling one called White Barn.

    First 2 doz cookies in the oven. Changed to oatmeal raisin instead. Yum.

  39. SnowBella
    4:22 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Melanie: it is like you have a hidden camera focused on the auction house.

  40. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:35 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Projects!…Well, those two came back from my other house and no one seemed to upset, so I guess they got the job done with no mishaps this time…grunt!… On the other paw, one of her precious almost half-way done projects got some snot on it. By Accident!…sneeze!…She says it is irrepairable and she will have to start over. I do believe she has moved from Grumpy to downright Mad…yeep!

  41. c.hobbit
    4:37 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Blow out your candles! I just got a call that my luggage is due into Fairbanks in 3 hours.

    Rebecca: I sent a bunch of emails to you of possible auction/store items. I know the photos are late. It is okay to save them until “next time.” My digital camera was in the wayward luggage so I took photos with my phone = not the greatest.

  42. SnowBella
    4:40 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Rio: I don’t want you to stress about auction items. Snot happens.

    Chh: Items received! Thanks!

  43. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:57 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Rebecca!…I’m not stressing out..snort!…But you should see my friend. The look in her one good eye was scary…wheeze!

    The Grey Cup, named after Lord Grey.

    A hockey game would be nice.

  56. SnowBella
    6:44 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Saving pennies for the auction is a good idea. Oh, you should see the items. Annabelle, curled on her new favorite spot (the couch) and I have decided to sit on our auction paddle so as not to bid on the items. Woowee!

  57. B.Stover
    6:58 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Dawson: Is that Lord Grey as in Earl Grey…the one the tea is named after?

  58. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:05 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Auction!… Rebecca! Are the Items for the Auction really, really, really great!!?…snort!snort!…I only know a few of them and they are unbelievable….heh!…Luckily, or unfortunately I am not able to bid on any of the items, unless someone wants to volunteer to be my Proxy Bidder….wheeze!

  59. Mollypop's Mom
    7:15 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Rio – I think your friend should cover the snort mark with a small bead or jewel.

  60. Siber-H
    7:25 pm on November 25th, 2012

    It might take more than a small bead or jewel to cover the snort mark.

    Yes, a hockey game would be nice. Baseball has disappeared into the darkness and the Formula One Racing season ended today.

  61. Annabelle
    7:36 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Rio: From where I sit on the couch—if you don’t have one, you really should get one—the auction items are wonderful! My Lady says all of us at Snowhook are not to bid or serve even as proxy so it doesn’t look like we are upping the bids. But, let me tell you, the things I’ve seen being loaded into the auction house by the Giant are wonderful. There is even an item that says ‘Top Secret.’

  62. Princess Sam
    7:37 pm on November 25th, 2012

    We want to see the team our new Sabre’s owner is putting together. This is a hockey town with no hockey. It’s a big problem here.

  63. dawson
    7:37 pm on November 25th, 2012

    BStover: Yes. Very good!

    OleyHowlers: Is it Meashka or Misha?

  64. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:55 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Secret!….Top Secret!?…wheeze!…I might have a small idea as to what that is…chuffle!puffle!…But I can’t snort a word about it because it is big time Top Secret!!….shhhhhh!

  65. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:01 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Dawson!…Dawson!…Dawson!….wheeze!…I found the Grey Cup on our TV…heh!…How about that?…snort!…So we here might watch it. What team are you rooting for anyways?…grunt!…SiberH might want to get in on this action. Check out NBCSP Siber ole buddy…heh!

  66. Melanie
    8:04 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Top Secret . . pondering . . Umm, how long to we open the doors. Don’t snort at me Riö, I’ve been glutened.

  71. Mollypop's Mom
    8:14 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Melanie – How did you get glutened? My gosh, I have a lot to learn, if it can happen to a pro like you.

  72. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:18 pm on November 25th, 2012

    MollysMom!…My freind says she cannot put a bead or a jewel on the spot where the snot landed…grunt!…She says it’s all over for that project….yeep!…She says this as she looks right at me too…gasp!

    Gordan!…Lightfoot is performing!….snort! I’ve never seen him before…wooooo!…(((old)))

  73. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:31 pm on November 25th, 2012

  74. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:37 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Funny!…This is very funny because EVEN Melanie does not know what the Top Secret Auction Item is …heh!heh!heh!heh!…And she sees everything before anyone else does. She even sees stuff before Rebecca…snort!…But not this! Not this Top Secret auction item – that is why she was ‘pondering’….Wooooo!…Funny!

  75. Princess Sam
    8:38 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Rio, what if its your friends mother and you’re being framed?

  76. Annabelle
    8:53 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Rio: The Top Secret item is in a fancy breifcase that My Lady promptly handcuffed to the Giant. This will have to do until we get installed in the safe at Auction Central, and even then the dogs of Snowhook and the Newf Pack will stand guard.

  77. Wose
    8:56 pm on November 25th, 2012

    TOP SECRET!? This will be keeping me up all night………

    Hello all – its been quite a day around here. Getting the tree up, doing some shopping, doing some work in the Mud Room, and trying to keep track of Gramp. Tell ya what, for a guy who can’t see – he’s awful hard to keep up with.
    Anyway, we will be back tomorrow – we have to take Gramp to the eye doctor first thing to check his prescription and try to get his proper glasses on a rush order. MAma and Dad are leaving Friday for a show, and won’t be home til Monday – but not if Gramp can’t see….
    Mama says we are too short to be seeing eye dogs.

  82. Siber-H
    9:10 pm on November 25th, 2012

    I don’t have TSN!!! Gordon Lightfoot!!
    I am all bummed out.

  83. Siber-H
    9:13 pm on November 25th, 2012

    Rio, Gordon Lightfoot was pretty good looking when he was younger. (mom says)
    He must be 70 yeard old or more now.

    What Rio, you aren’t watching Liz and Dick?

    We here can’t bear to watch two hours of Lindsey Lohan, so we are watching Cesar Millan’s story on NatGeoWild.

    For those who like Downton Abbey, there is a special about the making of the show on PBS called “Downton Abbey Revisited.”

    Rio, Lindsay Lohan is playing Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime movie. Grant Bowler plays Richard Burton. Guess filming was a nightmare. The girl is a train wreck. They did a good job of making her look like Liz, and they say Grant Bowler does an excellent job.

    Isn’t Downton Abbey coming back on in January?

    Rio: Who won the Grey Cup? I got pulled away and, oh yeah, I’m not paying attention to sports anymore since that disastrous World Series. I didn’t see Gordon Lightfoot but I was spared the “Beeb”.

    I will see what I can do about getting some details from AJ about that briefcase handcuffed to his wrist, but his being the strong and silent type isn’t in our favor.

    Dawson!…The Beeb was the reason we turned the channel real quick like so I don’t know who won the game…heh!…We’ve been re-watching A Time To Bark with Kevin Spacey and Keifer Sutherland – our two favorite male actors…heh!heh!

    Drat!…No one around – not even the west-coasters tonight…grunt!…My friend is absolutely dreading going to the busy-place tomorrow….sniff!…She hates it so much. It used to be a good place to go, but now it is screwed up and miserable…grunt!…Now it is just a place to collect a pay-check. This is not how she likes to think of her job. Not how she likes to spend her days….grunt!…I say, call it Quits and stay home with us!…wuffle!…We can be fun, sort of…snort!

    Pug careful what you wish for. When mom was home all day it was exhausting trying to keep her entertained all day. She totally disrupted my nap schedule.

    Melanie thanks for the picture of the Bass Hall. Mom and her mom had a very nice time. They had box seats and mom kept thinking that she should wave to the people on the floor. Luckily her mom made her behave. The snow falling on the singalong finale was quite festive.

    Dad decided he should drive the ladies to Fort Worth, so he and Belle went to Fort Woof while they waited. Dad said Belle never left his side so it sort of defeated the purpose of going to the dog park. Belle is picky who she hangs out with.

    Macy: I am so glad you had a good time. I’d say head bumps to you from Tenzing, but it would push over in one swoop. We can’t have that.

    Orion isn’t feeling tip top tonight, so I’ve tucked the quilt around him. He is snuggled in the straw Sheik left behind.

    Night noodle to all youse.
