Plunderers Roll Up Their Sleeves?

“Might be a good idea to get back to the Astrid case,” Spence says.

“You think?” says Admin.

Uh-oh. Those dudes. They tend to get – what’s the word? – fractious? shirty? dyspeptic? I don’t know any of those words, although I know what a shirt is, having gnawed on several in the laundry pile. Also there are Bernie’s Hawaiian shirts. He looks so good in them! The other day Suzie gave him a shirt that wasn’t Hawaiian but he hasn’t worn it yet. In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s lost.

“But with the site revamp and all,” Spence says, “maybe there are some newbies. We should give the readership a sort of synopsis of events so far. Like – Colonel Bob hired C&B to etc. etc. and then they went to etc. and etc. happened and after that etc. etc. which brings us to etc.”

Admin gives him a long look. “Sounds to me like a job for the Plunderers.”

Spence smiles and gives Admin a fist bump. All of a sudden they’re getting along. Those dudes!

    Just how many revamps do you need??? Love the title of today’s post.

    Stover: I think Kirby’s chart is all that they would need. That should be revamp enough.

    And Kirby, make sure your mom knows that prayers and crossed paws abound here in Chevy Chase for her father and his upcoming surgery, per your message last night. Wookie

    In addition to the flow chart: I believe the last post containing the Astrid case was Nov. 9, “Homing In” when Bernie, Chet and Ray are turning off the freeway onto Mesquite Road. Ray is wired and wants to take Bernie to Col. Bob; Bernie has silently pointed to the turn off so knows beforehand where they are going; earlier Bernie wrote something on a napkin for Ray to read. Chet is glad because he feels that Bernie is in control and having fun; he’s wondering if they are going home.

    Here are the questions that I think need answers in order to solve the case:

    Primary Questions:

    -Where is Astrid?
    -What was the motive for killing Albie and why put his body in the freezer?
    -Why set up Ray for the murder of Albie (if he was set up)?
    -What is the motive for killing Ratko, wrapping up his body and hiding it in a closet at Cactus Heights where he was caretaker for Albie?

    Secondary Questions:

    -What is Foster’s part in this?
    -Who is the “other dude” mentioned by Foster? (Albie divorced Astrid because he thought she was interested in him; Foster laughed off Bernie’s comment about Foster being the other dude).
    -Why did Astrid ask Tulip to watch her suitcases; what was in the suitcases; where are they now?
    -Why does Ray hate Col. Bob–is it something Astrid has told him? What did the two say to one another in Bakersfield?
    -What did Bernie learn when he went to LA (Sept. 15 post)?
    -Where is Col. Bob?
    -How did Ray know that Bernie was at Dry Gulch?

    I am rolling up my sleeves, not to work, but in preparation to slug someone.

    Hi Wookie.

    Kirby: Please let us know how everything is going.

    Rio: I’m going to watch The Event this evening. I’ll let you know.

    There was an article in the Technology section of today’s NYTimes with the headline stating that the ultimate goal of start ups is “Becoming a Verb.” Cracking up.

    B. – “Becoming a Verb” – how funny, how true. How about a verb that becomes a noun, like “to read” has become?

    Becoming a verb – ” Im’ going to Google something”.

    Becoming a noun – “It’s a great read”.

    We think both are ok. Know that Bee has a problem with read being a noun, but it is so descriptive, and everyone understands.

    that stuff not interesing
    doing research today on what Chet smeelled
    that what importantt in case Will bark later

  9. B.Stover
    10:38 am on December 1st, 2010

    No No No!! Read as a noun is not descriptive. It would be descriptive to say, I like the book because the characters are so real; or, The plot is so convoluted that it is impossible to follow; or, The theme is good versus evil with a twist.

    Shirty!… Spencer and Admin suffer from indigestion causing them to be irritable and over-all bad tempered guys….snort! ….It all sounds like a ploy to buy more time to me. Good grief!

    Stover!….Didn’t you do a play by play breakdown of the Astrid case at one point?….grunt!…I’m wondering if you still have that info on hand?….sniff!… Maybe along with your great questions that need to be answered it will jog someone’s shirty memory….grunt!

    Bess!…Hi my Bess!…snorkel!

  12. Mollypop
    10:51 am on December 1st, 2010

    Bess – Stay on the computer all day. The storm that left here and is on the way to you is a nasty one. I know you have a lot of fur, but stay inside where it’s warm.

    10:51 am on December 1st, 2010

    Hey and Hi, Bess!

    Kirby, I’m another one that missed the post about your mom flying to Washington. Our thoughts and prayers go with her and her dad’s surgery. Hope all goes well.

    Rio, mom saw a license plate today with a frame around it that said, “If you can read this, you can hear my pug breathing”. Mom was right behind that car at a drive-up window. Following the car on the road, there is no way it could be read. It was so tiny.

    We are off to do stuff. I’m leaving it to some of you to catch up everyone on the Astrid story. sigh, I wouldn’t know where to start, but I will cheat and read what you guys post.

  14. Barb & Maggie
    10:53 am on December 1st, 2010

    We almost misread “shirty” heh.

    Ok, Bee, trying to cause trouble here….why is a noun becoming a verb ok, but a verb becoming a noun NOT ok?

    I followed Bess’s post perfectly!

  15. Barb & Maggie
    10:56 am on December 1st, 2010

    Hope all goes well with Kirby’s grandpa. We also missed the post about surgery, but then we have missed a few of the posts lately.

  16. B.Stover
    11:02 am on December 1st, 2010

    B&M: Very good question. A noun that becomes a verb becomes more powerful probably because it becomes an “action” word. A verb that is used as a noun is deprived of the power it had as an action word.

    MagPie!….Did Barb realize she was number 100 last night?…..heh!

  18. Barb & Maggie
    11:12 am on December 1st, 2010

    OK, Bee, that helps explain it.

    Rio, Barb did not realize that she was #100! Did you send her lots of slobbery pug kisses and earlobe nips? Guess we missed that. That was her first time, too!

  19. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:14 am on December 1st, 2010

    MagPie!…You can always go back and read last night’s posts….grunt!…You do know that, don’t you?…sniff!

  20. B.Stover
    11:15 am on December 1st, 2010

    Here is the post where Melanie’s and my summaries were used. Note that it goes way back to May 27, “Facts on the Ground (But Not Yet Under):

    What happens if some newcomer arrives today?” Admin says. “They’d be lost. Maybe we should go back to tin futures – we’ve hardly scratched the surface, as it were.”

    “You’re probably right,” Spence says. “But there have been some summaries of the case in the down-below section – what if we posted a couple of them?”

    “And then went back to tin futures?”

    “Can’t see any reason why not.”

    The Case:

    From Melanie:

    Back January 8th we had our first clue from Chet. “Colonel Bob and Bernie had a long talk, something about Colonel Bob’s son, Ray. Is Ray in trouble? Are we on a case?”

    Then nothing that mentions CB and his son until February 26th. Chet was going to actually tell us something, but it got complicated and there was an argument between the 3 two legged people.

    On March 12th, Chet wants to “get back to work on Colonel Bob’s son’s case.” He doesn’t want to sniff for bedbugs.

    March 17th, Bernie wants to go to Alaska but “If we weren’t so caught up in the Jason thing, we could make a quick trip up there. Alaska sounds good.’ the Jason thing, so hard to keep all the details straight. For starters, he’s Colonel Bob’s son. Ray’s his first name. The Jason part comes from this woman we’re also looking for.”

    Then on March 24th Chet wrote: Funny thing – the whole Colonel Bob case, Ray Jason, Astrid Jason, all that, is suddenly clear in my mind. I was going to post about that today, get everything straight, but Bernie says there’s too much digital wackiness going on, and if Bernie says so, then that’s that. Anyway, we’re headed for Vegas, on a hunch, Bernie says. That’s a little worrisome – last time we went to Vegas on a hunch, well, never mind.

    From B. Stover:

    As far as I can determine, this is what we know, and all that we know:

    1. Col. Bob met his son, Ray Jason, after Ray followed him in his car. This was in Bakersfield. Col. Bob gave Ray $300 from his ATM. We don’t know what either said to the other except that Ray hates Col. Bob.

    2. Astrid is missing and according to Bernie, Ray is also missing.

    3. For some reason (a “hunch”?) Bernie thought that he could get info on Astrid from Albie Rose in Vegas and he goes there and questions Albie. Albie wants to hire Bernie, who will have none of that. Albie was married to Tiffany who changed her name from Ethel which was an alias for Astrid. Foster first saw her at a show as Ethel the Ready. Albie is very jealous, asks why Foster knew Tiffany 3 was really Ethel. Albie was married eight times.

    4. Foster, dressed in all black, comes to Bernie’s house. He wants to sell Bernie information about Astrid; he knows nothing about Ray. He does not want to work for Albie any longer and has a new gig in LA. He says that Astrid/Tiffany 3 liked Albie and that Albie was wrong about the other dude.

    5. Bernie and Chet are meeting with Foster in an unfinished housing development somewhere, I think, in the desert near Vegas. The housing development for some reason has windowless houses. Foster trusts Bernie and I think Bernie feels sorry for Foster.

    6. Bernie has not told Foster or Albie who his client is. He has given Foster $1.000 and we will apparently learn next what Foster knows, probably a very tenuous assumption.

    good morning everyone. I have stolen MrStaff’s tiny netbook and am reading the blog in the doctor’s office. I am only about 6 hours early. Mr Staff had to come into Fargo at 9 a.m. and my appointment is at 2:50, but he wouldn’t have time to come back to get me so I got to come in early.

    I didn’t get a chance to read it at all yesterday so there was a lot of catching up to do.

    Jasper’s Mom, Sounds good to me. Here’s hoping.
    Dawson, Sorry about stepping on the mouse. But that is better than a mouse in the bed.
    Wolfie’s Mom, Have a safe trip.
    Rio, Too bad I am not at home. I could put up many pictures of Kats. But there are only a few on this little net book. Oh, also I don’t think we need a picture of that tiny little corkscrew you call a tail. Now is you had a lovely blonde plume of a tail it would be different thing.
    I did think that was a very repectful slobbery kiss you gave Barb last night.

  23. Barb & Maggie
    11:44 am on December 1st, 2010

    Rio, We just went back to yesterday’s late night posts. Yes, you did a good job on the kisses, while remaining some what subdued with regards to any chest stomping. Barb says that is greatly appreciated! She is taking it easy today, just basically sitting around the house. Thanks for last night.

    Arms and chest are sore, but they probably have been sore and the good drugs masked that. She wishes she had more, but the doc says NO! Party pooper!

    Corkscrew!… Staff there is no need for you to make fun of my tail…grunt!… At least I have one, whereas you do not…sniff!sniff!… Besides, Stover likes my tail, just ask her….heh!

  26. B.Stover
    12:10 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Yes, I’d like a picture of Rio’s tail.

    As a newbie to the blog I appreciated the recap, except it made my head hurt so I only read the first sentence. I am pretty sure recap is the word you meant, not revamp, which would involve changing things around, and that would be a REAL mess.

  28. Debbie LM
    12:20 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Stover – you are the best. Now Bernie and Chet can get on with the Astrid case – although if they haven’t solved it by now I hope they are on a per diem; otherwise that may be reason their finances are in such a mess, not the Hawaiian pants.

    Whew! We just got back from town – got red pepper and gouda soup. It’s a skating rink out there. That rain was torrential so there was flooding south of here. We’re on a ski hill so that’s hard to flood. Then we got up this morning to a beautiful winter wonderland, but driving is impossible.

    Sadie: Welcome! I, too, only read the first sentence of the recap. I may go back to it but right now it is making me dizzy.

    To Kirby, Barb and Maggie, Dan, Melanie and Zoe, Macy MinPin and all those recovering, in pain or about to go to surgery…prayers being sent that you all get better soon.

    B.Stover: Just went upstairs and found The Oxford Shakespeare Richard III.
    The intro is 132 pages long. BUT! It has all of YSAS’s notes in it. I don’t know if that will help as I want to go more of the historical aspect of this and his is the acting . . .

    Soon I will get to it.

    Reading the blog backwards . .

    MollyPop, I thought the radar said snow for you guys. Why the ice?

    Hi Sadie!

    Riö has a tail?

    What the ??? Rose? Bess?

    You guys get in here!

    Macy’s back! Hooray!

    Melanie – It was warm so it rained. When we got up, it was all white but still 35 degrees. Now it’s 30 degrees and that’s the worst for driving. The news showed trucks jack-knifed on the route that we will take tomorrow to Sam’s.

    1:03 pm on December 1st, 2010

    B.Stover: I finally was able to read the recap without getting dizzy (having breakfast helped). Thanks for bringing Spence and Admin up to date Yet Again on this case.
    Rio: I hope you are not going to make someone cry again. A welcome would not go amiss.

  35. Riö - The Evil Pug

  37. B.Stover
    1:14 pm on December 1st, 2010

    For a complete recap we need to have the flow chart put up again.

    Sadie: Are you really Macy? Recap is the correct word. However, you never know…there might be a revamp.

    Melanie: Acting notes would be interesting also. Let me know what you find out when you get to it. I’m still on Gilgamesh but will get back to Richard probably next week. I’m wondering if I can find In Search of Richard…was that the name…at Amazon.

    Hey Sadie! My little Texas friend…I’m glad to see you back.

    I think the pack should post more often. I understand what they are saying perfectly, but then us dogs understand one another better than you hunmans understand one another sometimes. I’m just speaking of in general, not here on the blog.

    I now know about Kirby’s mom, but has Wolfie’s mom gone somewhere also?

    Thanks again Rio and Mollypop…I have seen my photos on the blog.

    Agent Patsy here: Rose is still barking at people in raincoats. I think that girl has nothing between ears but static. After fainting, Bess decided to nap. I am reporting what Mac and Mattie have discovered.

    Chet smells lots of things. He is our HERO!

    Scents in order. .
    • Albie Rose smelled like old cheese left in the sun.
    • Colonel Bob’s boots smelled of deserts, but not Chet’s desert.
    • At the empty housing development Chet smelled something important but was called away by Bernie.
    • The money Bernie paid Foster smelled of the perfume that Tulip wears.
    • Chet does not like the smell of pink insulation. (This is Patsy breaking in here, I tried eating that stuff once. Not good and Melanie made me drink a lot of milk afterward and eat bread. That was okay though.)
    • At Albie’s house just before they find Albie in the freezer: “First, I smelled me, of course: old leather, salt and pepper, mink coats, and just a soupçon of tomato; and to be honest, a healthy dash of something male and funky. And then Bernie, the best-smelling human male I’d ever smelled: apples, bourbon, and also salt and pepper. There were similarities in our smells, just another great thing about Bernie. . . there were lots of chemical smells coming from the walls, and cleaning fluid smells, and wax smells, and flower smells, and air-conditioning smells, and copper smells, and -” Also “Lots of cooking had gone on here, plus there was a mouse on the loose.”
    • Chet did not smell Albie until the freezer was opened.
    • When they find a confused Ray at the pool, Chet can smell the blood on the towels and the booze on Ray.
    • At Tulip’s hotel room, Chet smells deer musk and mint, a scent worn by Foster. Chet is amazed that Tulip says she can smell it. Tulip says it’s the scent worn by Ratko Savic.
    • A Dead Ratko was the smell that Chet smelled at the housing development.
    • Lt. Stein smells like potatoes.
    • Then there’s this whole weird thing about Chet smelling a quilt???
    • Ray smells of human fear at the Dry Gluch. Chet can also smell steak tips but there is no time to eat.

    Whew, this was a lot of work. We, as one of the Packs, of the Nation within the Nation know that this will solve the case!

    Now for some steak tips!

    Agent Patsy out.

    I just received a book from Liz: Funny English Errors and Insights. Liz is the designer of the book and she sent it with a note on one of her cards: a pen and ink drawing the the Sumatran Tiger….beautiful! Here’s one example from the book:

    “Asked to write ‘cool’ and ‘collected’ in a sentence: The man was cool before the explosion but he was collected afterwards.”

    Here’s another: “Q: Define the first person. A: Adam.”

    Jeez, I’ve got a nutty Pack. The keyboard is all wet and yucky . .

    I found Patsy’s post and I think I found something very interesting.

    Tulip says that Ratko wears that scent that Chet smelled on Foster. Perhaps . . .

    Tulip and Foster are in on this together. I might be wrong on time here, but wasn’t Ratko dead before the suitcases went missing?

    Pondering . . .

    Melanie!…I have suspected Tulip all along…snort!…The matching cologne is very interesting. Tulip says that Ratkco wears it. But couldn’t it rub off on someone who doesn’t wear it if they were in close contact, say fighting? ….grunt!…How was Ratkco killed? I can’t remember. He was rolled up in plastic wasn’t he?…sniff!

  54. B.Stover
    3:36 pm on December 1st, 2010

    I don’t think we know how Ratko died. Here’s the post from Aug.31 when they discover his body. (I think the missing suitcases came before this.)

    I don’t like this,” Bernie said. “Not one bit.” He opened the closet door.

    It was a deep closet, with space for this long bubble-wrapped package lying on the floor. Once I walked across some bubble wrap and pop-pop-popping sounds happened. I don’t like bubble wrap. Inside this particular bubble wrap there was a human body, not alive – the smell proved that. The face was all pressed out of shape by the bubble wrap.

    “Damn it,” Bernie said. “It’s Astrid for sure.”

    He bent down, started unwrapping around the face part. I’d never seen Astrid, but this wasn’t her, because it wasn’t even a woman. It was a pointy-nosed man I’d seen before. My memory of perps’ faces, especially the faces of perps who’d tried a little knife play on us, was pretty good.

    “Ratko,” Bernie said.

    Sadie MUST be Macy. We hope so, because everyone wants her back. Right, Rio? You did say so up above. Did Macy ever mention living with another 4 legged?

    Hi B, hooray that it finally turned up! That potato one is my favourite, incidentally. I’m glad it’s giving you a giggle.

    HEY CHET! Tomorrow, 3 December, is Hawaiin Shirt Day here. Annual fundraising for a local cancer support group.

    I think Astrid killed Ratko.

    I’ll try to upload the book cover. NB Rio, the illustrations are mostly photographs, although I did some incidental, electronic ones.

    LizF – That is the perfect book to give B!

    Hello my friends. Mom is jumping and laughing and dancing and is getting ready to start blurring. The phone rang and she has another appointment with the State of Michigan on Friday at 12:30. Oh boy, now she’s doing some whooping thing combined with more hysterical laughing. That kind of thing gets me going. Yep, my paws are starting to jump…bye, bye, yeep, yeep.

    Jasper: Wonderful wonderful wonderful!!

    Hey Liz! Mollypop is right. I’m having fun! I love your card also.

    Jasper’s Mom – I’m sending Poodle Kisses, which are the very best kind. Way way better that that Pug slobber. This will bring you luck.

    Jasper, We are soooo happy for your mom! That means she is one of the top 2, right?

    5:36 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Jasper!… I am marking down the date and time so I can be sure to be saying powerful Pug prayers for you!…. woooooo! …I’m skipping, I’m skipping!,….snort!snort!

    5:42 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Rio – Be sure to take into account the different time zones so you won’t be late.

  67. Mollypop
    5:44 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Patsy – We should have had you involved much sooner. Yhe nose knows.

    Patsy – We should have had you involved much sooner. The nose knows.

    Yo Jasper! The Pack is wagging their tails so hard that dinner is flying off the table.
    Whoops! There it goes, but no worries, Patsy caught the duck and Mac the apples. We’re okay here.

    Now where Jasper and Mom live that is Central Time correct?

  70. Mollie (a black poodle)
    6:07 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Jasper: Congratulations to your Mom.

    I don’t think the Astrid case can be solved without the help of Melanie and B.Stover, and of course the famous flow chart. A very confusing case for sure.

  71. B.Stover
    6:08 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Michigan is in the Eastern Time Zone.

    6:22 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Way to go Jasper’s mom!!! She will be in our thoughts at 10:30 my time Friday morning. I’ll run extra laps at the dog park for her good luck!

    Excellent reporting Agent Patsy!

  73. Siber-H
    6:32 pm on December 1st, 2010

    I am not responsibe for the duplicate pictures of me in my Rockies cap on the Friends of Chet page. As you all know, I am innocent because I don’t know how to do the photos.

    Hey, there is a cat on my front porch!

  74. Mollypop
    6:34 pm on December 1st, 2010

    We are having a lake effect storm and it’s terrible because we’re not included. There’s a band of snow coming off Lake Erie that should be oscillating north and south but it is just standing still. It’s a narrow band, only 13 miles wide, but it’s dumping 2 -3 inches of snow an hour where they don’t want it and we do want it.

    The weather forecasters say it may move south to us over night. I think they never have a clue.

  75. Staff
    6:46 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Yahoo for Jasper’s Mom. I think it was the ‘force’ generated by this blog that helped her. She will do wonderful on Friday I know. Yay! Hooray!

    We will be cheering for you!

    Staff and Kats

    Welcome, Sadie the Designer Dog. I hope you are Macy returning but if you are not we welcome you.

  76. Siber-H
    6:53 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Molly, I’ll be curious tomorrow to find out if the snow did move south over you. We will think positive thoughts of snow.

  77. Melanie
    7:39 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Sadie: I don’t mind who you are . . . you are driving the Pug nuts. Power to you.

    MollyPop! I agree with you on the weather forecasters. . . We were supposed to end up with snow after all this rain and now they say no. They change their minds and pretend they never did.

    Mollie (ABP): Solved? Me thinks it needs to be written first!

    There’s more to be said, but I must rise at 5:30 am to Pack and Dan sit while Zoë goes off with Patsy and Bess to the vets. Just check ups and a few checks.

    So TTFN

    Jasper: Hoorah for your mom!
    B.Stover: What a fun book. Good on ya, LizF.
    Dad and Mom are listening to audio books with earphones. Dad is laughing out loud every minute or so…he is reading a Dortmunder novel by Donald Westlake. 🙂
    The huskies are multiplying. Siber H. is innocent.
    Dad’s laughter is getting louder. And is now almost constant.
    Do you think we will actually get a new installment of the Astrid case tomorrow? Thanks to those who have brought Spence up to date on the case.
    Thinking of Kirby’s grandpa. That is a long surgery.
    Barb and Maggie: Did you take it easy today?

  79. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:57 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Heh!…I’m still so damned happy about Jaspers gal getting into the top two!…wow!… This group does have power beyond what we even know!…heh!…Woooo!

    SiberH!…Quit complaining about how many photos there are of you….snort!… I know I have another one of you that I will try to post later…heh!…Relax and enjoy your new found fame! I bet Revlon or Maybeline will be offering you modeling contracts….cough!…Who knows, maybe Mary Kay herself will show up on your doorstep with a lucrative offer!…grunt!

  80. Barb & Maggie
    8:01 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Dawson, Barb took it easy today, and read on line that the arm pain is pretty standard after 2 weeks. She is going into the office tomorrow from noon till 5:00. Hope it isn’t too much for her. Nothing really hard – computer and phones mostly, but we will see.

  81. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:05 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Molly!…I can’t find that other photo of SiberH that he was thinking of putting on the Quilt, do you have it?…Heh!…Please post it if you do….grunt!

  82. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:06 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Skipped!…Dawson did not mention me in her ramblings tonight…sniff!…I feel neglected and ignored…grunt!

  83. dawson
    8:19 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Rio: I was going to mention you but only as a possible suspect for posting multiple pictures of Siber H. so I decided to keep my big mouth shut. First time you’ve given me heck for being quiet. Usually you are begging for that.

  84. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:20 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Sad!…She is out in the kitchen making hamburgers into the shape of hot dog buns…heh!.. I guess we are out of hamburger buns and she is improvising…snort!…,I just hope something falls apart and lands on the floor for me!…gruff!

    MagPie!…Tell Barb it is way too early for her to go back to work…sniff!…That’s just crazy talk…grump!

  85. Mollypop
    8:24 pm on December 1st, 2010

    I have 2 more Siber-H pictures.

    Rio’s right, more time off for Barb, I say. She seems to be doing remarkably well, wow!

  88. Mollypop
    8:28 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Notice again Siber-H’s mountain of toys. Poor neglected baby.

  89. dawson
    8:44 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Siber H. looks like he is protecting his toys from friends like Rio.

  90. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:45 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Toys!…That mountain of toys is very desirable to me!…grunt!…I do not have nearly that amount of baseball toys…sniff!…Maybe I need a bigger warm soft bed so I can have more toys….hmmm? …Thanks Molly, I will get these photos up soon!…heh!

  91. B.Stover
    8:47 pm on December 1st, 2010

    I like both pictures of SH.

    I agree that it’s too early for Barb to go back to work.

    Forgot to listen to The Event and I’m too tired now to watch it.

  92. Sam
    8:51 pm on December 1st, 2010

    My Mom and my girl want to know what brand of eyeliner Siber-H uses. They want to buy it.

  93. Siber-H
    8:54 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Who do you think will offer me the most money, Maybeline or Revlon? Isn’t Mary Kay for little old ladies, and I think Mary Kay, herself, has gone to Rainbow Bridge, and I really hate pink cars.

  94. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:22 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Score!… I knew my hypothesis was correct about the hotdog bun shaped hamburgers falling apart!…snort!… Almost half of one broke on its way to the bun and bounced off the stove and onto the floor….heh!…I had planted myself there knowing this would happen at any minute. It was the Grab and Gulp action…sniff!…But I burnt my tongue and now I can’t yeep…gruffle!… I go yee yee yee… ouch!

    Mary Kay!… I had no idea that MK had left this world…grunt!…I’m sure she looked beautiful doing it….snort!… That leaves Maybeline and Revlon in play, oh and don’t forget Cover Girl…cough!

  95. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:29 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Staff!… If I let her add the photo of me sleeping sitting up will you add AbbieTheKat squatting on her butt with her left paw out front?…heh!

  96. dawson
    9:42 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Poor Abigail. That’s kitty porn.

  97. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:47 pm on December 1st, 2010

    AbbieTheKat!….heh!snort!heh!…Dawson, I would never post that photo without Staff saying it was “OK”…heh!…It does look like she is posing for some filthy Kitty Galore magazine though…heh! heh!

  98. Barb & Maggie
    9:49 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Ok you guys, Barb is sort of obligated tomorrow for 5 hours, but if it is too hard, then she will beg off for the 5 hours on Friday. Then she doesn’t go in again till next Thursday. It is not heavy work, and it is just a 3 mile drive from our house.

    She is going to go to be shortly.

  99. Sam
    9:50 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Rio, you could be on the staff of the Inquirer, wanting pictures of people caught unawares and looking rather awful. No, no, not our Kats and Dogs. We are all too elegant for this yellow journalism.

  100. Barb & Maggie
    9:51 pm on December 1st, 2010

    That is go to bed, and we love the Siber pictures. I want some of those toys!

  101. dawson
    10:04 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Rio: I gave Staff an earful when I saw that picture. I think she sold it to get her new kidney.

  102. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:09 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Sammie!….I already said I would never post that photo on Friends of Chet (although it already has been posted here on the blog) without Staff’s OK…heh!… Does the Animal Inquirer pay lots of money? …sniff!…Oh Rockie!! Do you own a Kamera?…heh!

    Barb!…Goodnighty night!…snort! And Barb, you were 100 again 2 times in a row!…snort!…SLUUUURPPP!….SLOBBERRRR!….nip nip just a little bit…heh!…Off to bed you go all slobbered up!..wheeze!

  103. Siber-H
    10:13 pm on December 1st, 2010

    I really like the way they designed Friends of Chet. It is so much easier now to look at all the photos.

  104. Barb & Maggie
    10:18 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Wow, I can’t believe Barb and I did it again. I was going to ask why she gets all the kisses, but she needs them more than me right now. Thanks, Rio. She is going to grab a towel and then head for bed. See you guys tomorrow.

  105. dawson
    10:24 pm on December 1st, 2010

    I just cut 180 metoprolol tablets in half and my eyes have gone wonky. Goodnight everybody.

  106. Staff
    10:39 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Rio, I promised AbbietheKitty that I would never allow that picture to be published again. We are going to put up some of her nice ones soon. She is having a hard time, because she is a scaredy Kat, since we (the staff’s) are not there to cater to her every wish.
    Although I hear that she is training Dawson in on the tummy rub on the wool rug. Hehehehe

  107. Staff
    10:41 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Oh that picture of Cricket snoozing is just too cute for words. Thank you for putting it up on the friends of Chet.

  108. Siber-H
    10:44 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Good Night Barb and Dawson. Don’t overdo it Barb. It hasn’t been that long since surgery, but I am glad you are doing so well.
    Dawson, that is a lot of those tiny pink tablets, gasp.
    We are also going to sleep. nighty nite everyone

  109. LizF
    10:51 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Thanks Staff! She’d only been with me for about a week back then, so she was about 4 months old.

    Dawson, nice ‘Good on ya’, by the way – i did notice!

    Siber-H is a tres handsome dude.

  110. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:11 pm on December 1st, 2010

    Liz! …How is the older Cricket doing these days?…snuffle!… How are your commissions that are in front of mine coming along? You are almost done with them, right?…gruff! gruff!….yee!

    Cassie!…I posted a photo of Cassie the Butt Sniffing Dog…grunt!…Because she would have been a friend of Chet’s for sure!…snorkel!

  111. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:53 pm on December 1st, 2010

    G’Night!… Tomorrow is Trash Day!…heh!… I get to follow her out to the outer limits of my existence…snort!…This day is the only day of the week that I get very close to the so-called dreaded street…grunt!…I just don’t see what the problem is with me crossing over and snuffling around on those other guys lawns…grump!…This rule or law really ticks me off sometimes, especially on Trash Day…hmmmphf!…Good night all! …gruffle!

  112. Gus & BooBear
    12:31 am on December 2nd, 2010

    Just a quick thought for KirbyT’s grandpa. Hope his mom made the trip without any problem and that the surgery is smooth sailing.

    Congrats to Jasper’s mom. We will keep the cat prayers coming your way for Friday’s appointment.

    Someone asked is Macy MinPin had other 4 legged in her house. We think there are 4 other dogs. She was in the family way when she found her forever home and we know 2 of her babies still live there. We may be wrong about the total number, but she’s fusses about her kids sometimes. Hope it is Macy coming back though (not that you aren’t welcome, Sadie).

    B, we still think “read” makes a great noun.

  113. LizF
    1:25 am on December 2nd, 2010

    Rio, the older Cricket is still too cute but she has arthritis pretty badly. Off to the vet tomorrow – she HATES the vet.

    Commissions hmmm, yes, well at least i completed one for the exhibition today. Hooray!

    Rio why aren’t you allowed across the street?
