Mrs. P

Mrs. Plansky turned to Jeanine. “Paying for what?”

“The TV in the lounge,” Jeanine said, “but I don’t know where he got the idea there’d be a charge. No one would have told him that. It’s covered by our insurance.”

“He broke the TV?”

Jeanine nodded. “With a beer bottle.”

“He threw it that hard?”

Jeanine shook her head. “He wheeled right up to the screen and used the bottle like a club. Have you met Mr. Blucher?”

“I don’t think so.”

“He’s new. That’s who the argument was with. Naturally a staff member was on scene, serving refreshments and such, but it all happened very quick.”

“Dad’s ninety-eight. How could it have been quick?”

    Good morning everyone!
    When I started reading I got a bit confused but suddenly a light went on and it all made as much sense as it possibly could. Love the juxtapositions in it.

    Newsflash!… It is now official, we have airplane reservations and hotel reservations for Anchorage in the first two weeks of March. We are going to be at the 50th anniversary running of the Iditarod! If anyone else is going to be in the neighborhood then let us know. The DDD and I are looking forward to March.

    HOH: there was an article in the paper about the decline of long-distance mushing. Sprint racing is still doing well with a number of racers but applicants for the Iditarod and Yukon Quest are declining along with major sponsors and prize monies. Theories include increasing costs due to inflation and the fact that younger mushers are not entering the field. Training is too intensive and time-consuming on top of working to make money to support a kennel.

    Tonight I get on a plane and eventually wake up in Florida where I will be on a tour for a couple of weeks. Then I visit Bluecat relatives in Indiana. I conclude the month of December on Jekyll Island off of Georgia. This is the longest I’ve been away from my kitties but I have a good live-in pet sitter.

    Dawson!…We are halfway thru Fredrick Backman’s new book, “Winners”….whew!…This book is like reading 2 books. Seriously…yelp!…But we actually just started reading it yesterday and it is incredibly hard to put down…chuffle!…
    The only other author I can compare Fredrick with is the Charming Mr. Abrahams even though their style is completely different. It’s hard to explain. Just pure Genius in their craft…snorkel!
