Plans/No Plans

We’ve been taking a peek under the hood on the writing of the Chet and Bernie series.  Let’s give the last (and very sensible) word to reader Paulette Sweeney, who writes: “I don’t care how they are written as long as they are.” The spirit that made America great!

The next C&B is all written (“and available for preorder!” – Mrs. Publicist’s pushy mom).

    I think Paulette nailed it perfectly. Well said.

    From last night, the conversation veered from ferrets and politics to weasels and the legal profession, one I know quite well (for references, please contact The Thieves, aka “lovable miscreants”). There are so many comments to make, but I will leave it at this, keeping with the animal motif. You can tell a successful lawyer by the fact that their suit coat is so well tailored that the dorsal fin is practically invisible.

    WATP: You made me laugh out loud!

    You said it, Paulette! :^)

    A good day to all!

    I agree–well said Paulette. And WATP is making me laugh also.

    Good day to all.

    Hi, guys. Haven’t dropped in for a couple of weeks. Had to let my sweet BooBear cross the bridge last week. Kitty doctor said I was making the right choice but still hard to make. I could tell she was declining quickly. I am comforted by the knowledge that Teddy and Wookie were going to escort her. I think I need to commission some artwork of two golden retrievers walking away with a small yellow kitty walking between them.

    In regards to All Creatures Great and Small….the new series on PBS is great. I have never seen the old series, but have loved this one. I was very excited to see it renewed for another season.

    Stay safe, friends.

    Good day all.
    That’s one of the things you got a love about this blog. You can laugh and cry at the same time. We think Paulette hit the nail on the head. With Hank walkie and Teddy’s paw for his humor and insight. Our heart goes out to Boo Bear’s mom. Just know you did the right thing.
    Three statements and laughter and tears.

    BooBear’s Maw: Your sweet BooBear was indeed escorted by Wookie and Teddy across the Bridge. Your sweet BooBear was welcomed by all—-Gus was at the front of the line. Please know that earthly constraints are no longer a concern. BooBear is Restored to Prime. The Veil will remain thin. Ease your heart. We will take it from here.

    Boo’s Maw: Did we offer to escort Boo Across the Bridge? You tell us. Was there a lot of throat clearing by Wookie and Teddy when we made the offer? Did Beau hang his head? Did Luna grab us by the scruff with her firm, but loving paw when we placed a few claw on the Bridge? We have no idea. We do recall a commotion of some sort when we insisted that we were up for such an important job.

    More to Boo’s Maw: Being corrupted by a kat is more enjoyable that we anticipated. We can only image it is because you trained her well. Well done.

    WATP: We are always available to provide a testimonial of your work. We barely even notice your dorsal fin anymore —- according to Luna, it’s not polite to stare.

    BooBear’s Mom — head bumps and purrs.

    WATP — my boy is an attorney. His roommate in undergrad kept ferrets. Coincidence? I think not.

    BooBear’s Mom: I will miss your lovely girl. She was always a bright light on this blog. I can think of no better escorts than Wookie and Teddy, goldens just like Boo.

    What other kat has a day named after them in their honor? Only Boo Bear. Every Friday will still be a Happy Book Bear day!!
    Boo Bear will be a legend on this here blog for years to come.

    Sadie is wise to me hiding medicine in food, in pill pockets, in peanut butter, etc. What is the best way to give a dog medicine? She has two pills to take that I cut in half to make it easier. One is to be taken am and pm. Then she has a capsule that she is to take am and pm. The powder is bitter….

    Hobbit: There is only one sure fire way—-Slather the pill in hot wing sauce with a beer chaser. It is just as nature intended.
