Poolside (3)

“Ray?” said Bernie. “Let’s not let this get any worse.”

Ray was still gazing at the gun in his hand like it was surprising him in some way. He looked at Bernie, then at me, and tossed the gun aside. It clattered on the tiles by Albie Rose’s pool. We went over. Bernie picked it up. He spun the barrel, ejected a round.

“Twenty-two long, Ray,” he said. His gaze went to the empty bottles of booze, the bloody towels. “What went on here?” he said.

Ray put his head in his hands. That’s something humans do from time to time. It means they’re not feeling tip-top. I myself was feeling tip-top at the moment. We were working on a case, getting paid, and all the guns in sight were in our possession.

“I don’t know,” Ray said. Perps said that kind of thing all the time. Take Smiley Frelish, for example, who’d said, “What money?” when we burst into his crib and found him counting big stacks of it, money that would have solved all our financial problems, but Bernie gave it back to the bank anyway. But forget all that. The point is that for some reason I was starting to like Ray.

    Heh!…Lexi and Sammie having a showdown for a part in a movie… ha!… You guys made me laugh right off the bat!…snort!…But what about poor Ray? Chet likes the guy so he must not be the bad guy in this bloody scenario…grunt!

    Lexi, Dahling, I am Princess. You could certainly be in the movie with me, but I AM Princess.

    "and all the guns in sight were in our possession"

    Wonderful! I can see why Chet is feeling tip-top! It is good to be the protectors with the plethora of projectile pieces!

    Oh Ray . . . How many times as a mom have I heard that comment . . .

    Now, Get Your Act Together, and find out what's going on. If you aren't the perp (another p word), Bernie and Chet will help! Just don't do anything dumb.

    Gracie ate a pound of hamburger in the middle of the night and then again this morning. All by herself!

    Just like Lexi swimming! All By Her Self! 🙂

    Staff: Sorry about the daisies, glad it wasn't you, Alice and Abbie would not be pleased and we don't want Kats on the Rampage.

    Riö, your fierce look just makes Bess want to kiss your nose!

    Melanie: That was the line that made me start laughing. Chet is so practical! (I like your alliteration also.) I'm glad that Chet likes Ray. I'm going to the doctor in a bit, hopefully to get meds.

    Staff – They just showed on TV the damage from that tornado. So scary and so close to where you were standing. Yikes! Glad you are safe.

    B. – Mom had a sinus infection last winter and she made a lot of funny noises and sounded just like Rio. I hope you feel better.

    I don't think that Ray killed Albie. I can't even begin to speculate who did, however. And where is Astrid? And I'm sure we haven't seen the end of Foster. Hmmm….pondering…!!

    Hurrah for Gracie!! I have been so worried about our little mama!

    Rio, give your friend a pug hug, okay?

    Chet: Ray probably reminds you of his father. You liked him too. I think he fed you a couple pounds of hamburger.

    Melanie: Couple pounds of hamburger should last for one feeding of those pups. And she ate it by herself – relief. Gracie could use the services of a wet-nurse to give her a break. Anybody know one?

    Staff: My big and little sister out looking at daisy's while a tornado rips up the town just blocks away. Staff has been in the middle of a tornado before, in Minnesota. I don't think Montana gets many tornadoes. Staff seems to attract them.

    I am pleased to report that the boys are doing great!! We have been busy and mom has been sharing her laptop with them, so we haven't been on line as often as we would like.

    Let's see…..both boys are playing jr varsity football, and are working out with the varsity team at 7:30 as well. Today they are applying for a summer job at Burger King, and they each have nice girlfriends who are clean and sober. They are doing their chores, being responsible, and we are having lots of fun together! Baxter, our part time job, adores them and sometimes I get a little jealous. (sad face)

    I think that mom is a little worried because they are doing so well, but I told her that I, Wolfie Wigglebutt am on duty, and I will take good care of them!

    Dawson – I volunteered Rio, but he wasn't thrilled with the idea of being a wet nurse.

    Sam! I'm Princess! And I have a million dresses to prove it! Aha! BAM. I won. 🙂

    Rio! I'm the Princess, right!? You're gonna say right and I know it! 🙂

    Holy Cow! Mom is reading the New York Times and they pointed to a bunch of youtube videos of Staff's tornado, which we now know she attracts.

    Go to youtube.com and type into the search field 'Tornado destroys MetraPark' and some scary videos come up. My oh my oh my.

  14. dawson
    5:57 am on June 21st, 2010

    WWWWW: We all know that Rio is NOT a wet nurse.

    That other tornado was in 1982. That was on a Sunday too! I do not believe that two tornadoes in 28 years can be called 'attracting tornadoes'.

    ~Wolfie, good to hear from you. Sending good vibes to the boys so they keep on the straight and narrow path.

    ~BStover, good luck with the meds. I hate sinus infections.

    ~Rio, good wishes to you for all the stuff you have to do. It is a lot of work. We will be thinking of you.

    ~Lexi and Sam…uh oh!

    ~Melanie, good news with Gracie. As long as she knows you are in her corner fighting for her she will be fine.

    Whew, time for breakfast here. Then maybe we will go out and do some laundry. Not at the laundromat that was sucked up by the tornado though. We will have to use a different one.


  16. dawson
    6:08 am on June 21st, 2010

    Lexi: My opinion. You don't become a princess just because you wear dresses. Sam does not need such finery – she is a natural princess.

    You, Lexi, are the Queen of Bob's. There is no shame in that.

  17. dawson
    6:16 am on June 21st, 2010

    Staff: I have never been in the middle of an actual tornado that knocked down huge trees all around the building I ran into moments before to avoid being sucked up. I have never watched the daisy's get hailed on while buildings were being demolished blocks away. I stand by my previous statement. By the way, was anyone hurt in that 1982 tornado? If not, at least you attract only non-fatal tornadoes. The only injury in this tornado was a guy who got hit on the head with a big hail-stone.

  18. Sam
    8:55 am on June 21st, 2010

    Rio, yesterday your friend said you had such good expressions that you could be in a movie.

    I read that and said Movie? Movie! Yes, Movie! I’m ready!

    Can I audition with you? We’d be so good together in a movie. I could do this before my Princess role – it’d be good practice.

  19. Lexi
    8:55 am on June 21st, 2010

    Hey! Chet! NO likey of the bad guy! BAD dog! Stay by Bernie and follow what he does. Be a good dog. Your all our role model! And GOOD morning! 🙂

  20. Lexi
    8:58 am on June 21st, 2010

    Hey Sam! We posted at the same time!! 🙂 Cool! But I want the role of Princess! I wanna be in a movie! Grr! Showdown!

  21. Riö - The Evil
    8:03 am on June 21st, 2010

    Showdown!… The only way to pick the one true Princess of The Blog is two have both contestants post their most Princess-like photos …snort!… Then we regular bloggers will vote on who should be our Princess… grunt!…Maybe we can email AbbieTheKat our vote so as not to cause hard feelings…sneeze!…She can keep count and declare the winner…wheeze!… Abbie?

  22. Lexi
    8:34 am on June 21st, 2010

    Hey! There ain't any rule against being BOTH Queen of Bobs AND Princess!! All of my Bobs even agree with me. Top THAT Sam!! Aha!! I, Lexi, declare myself as the princess!! 🙂 😛

  23. Lexi
    8:38 am on June 21st, 2010

    Fine Rio!!! I will send in a photo of me at my most princess like!! Tailwags and licks. Lexi-your future blog princess, and who is also holding the title as the Queen of Bobs.

    9:04 am on June 21st, 2010

    9:34 am on June 21st, 2010

    Rio, I am willing to judge the princess candidates. Every one should be allowed to participate. We will not discriminate.

    However I don't know if I can do this until Wednesday when AbbietheKitty and I are actually together again.

    I can, of course, mind meld with her if you all insist on immediate satisfaction.


    Submit your pictures.

    EEK!!! Do I have to vote in this girly Princess thing?

  31. Riö - The Evil
    9:45 am on June 21st, 2010

    SiberH!… It is the only way to shut them up about it…snort!…Once one is declared the Princess of The Blog then the bickering will stop… grunt!… Maybe.

  32. Riö - The Evil
    9:49 am on June 21st, 2010

    9:55 am on June 21st, 2010

    Melanie, tell Gracie that she has made us all very happy and relieved, and to keep it up.

    Wolfie, I am glad that things are going well. Don't be sad about Baxter. Love has no limits. You're their number one guy.

    Staff, terrible pictures coming out of Billings…glad you guys are okay. Billings is not a place one would expect a tornado, unlike Kansas or Oklahoma.

    I hope the doctor can help Stover. We don't want you to be sick.

  34. Melanie
    10:20 am on June 21st, 2010

    Oh, oh, vote for ONE Princess? Sounds like a Kat fight to me!

    Wölfie, I still worry about my boys and OTAS will be 31 in NINE days. Jeez.

    B. Stover, isn't just about right that you can get through the entire year and then you get sick?

    Grace ate some roast today and then a third of a can of dog food. She is looking better. She loves being with all TWELVE at the same time. They can't really feed that way; some two are always left out. Here's a picture of them all. They have already eaten and just having Mom time.

    Zonked out here. So Enjoy!

    10:32 am on June 21st, 2010

    Wow!…Each one of those little black balls of fur are going to grow into Giants!… holy cow!…snort!…The look on Gracie’s face says it all…wheeze!

  37. dawson
    10:33 am on June 21st, 2010

    Melanie: What a lovely picture of Grace and her puppies. She is such a good mother. She doesn't look too bad – just a little exhausted as you all must be. (Click on the picture to enlarge)

    Lexi: I don't see your picture.

  38. Riö - The Evil
    10:37 am on June 21st, 2010

    Bess!… I hope Bess is getting fed….snort!… It sounds like all the good stuff is going to Gracie…cough!… Poor Bess. She is probably as hungry as I am ALL THE TIME!… grunt!

    10:44 am on June 21st, 2010

    10:52 am on June 21st, 2010

    Good photo of Grqcie and the pups. Maybe getting to be with all of them at once will help Gracie's mood. I know Gracie is proud of those pups, as she should be.

  41. Melanie
    11:06 am on June 21st, 2010

    Lexi, I find I have to wait until I see the name or number of the picture right under where I have written. SO IT WOULD BE HERE!

    It takes awhile depending on how many pixels the photo is. Then I hit submit.

  42. Riö - The Evil
    11:16 am on June 21st, 2010

    Okay, read 'em and weep. I am a Maltese and I run with blurry legs and my head held in a determined position. I am Princess.

    Small disclaimer here: my family keeps getting my should-be long hair cut. It will grow in time for my audition.

  45. Sam
    11:46 am on June 21st, 2010

    Here is what a Maltese should look like – take notice of this family. This is a picture of that horrible shameless Babycakes.

    What a beautiful family Grace and her twelve pups make. She looks proud as she should.

    Thanks all for the well wishes. I now have meds and I hope they work. Mollypop: That was so funny about your mom when she had a sinus infection making funny noises that sound just like Rio! And that is so accurate! (Rio: You know that we love your sound effects. It's just that I prefer they come from you on the blog rather than from me in reality.)

  48. Riö - The Evil
    11:56 am on June 21st, 2010

    Hmmm!… Sammie, not to be judgmental in any way shape or form…heh!…How does this photo make you look Princess-like??…. snort!…To me it is a big room full of furniture and a little bitty white girl-dog that we can barely see because she hiding on the cough!…wheeze!… Maybe you should submit one that shows more of just you in a Princess-like pose? … cough!… I am only offering up a suggestion here, this is your competition… grunt!…Lexi is having issues even posting her photo…heh!

  49. B. Stover
    11:57 am on June 21st, 2010

    On Facebook Spence (today) answered a question about his writing methods. He is at work on his new middle-grade novel and said that "Robbie and Ashanti are in a sticky situation." I love the name Ashanti.

  50. B. Stover
    12:02 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Rio: I watched Through the Wormhole. It was very interesting. The theory of the Hawaiian surfer-physicist is fascinating. However, the "mental helmet" dude is totally unconvincing. (Whenever I want to irritate my physics professor friend, I ask him to explain what happened two minutes before the Big Bang. It works every time….HEE HEE.)

  51. Riö - The Evil
    12:04 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Stover!…yeah! You are back!…sniff!… I missed you my friend….grunt!…Guess what? Because someone doesn’t feel like doing anything after that visit to the Crematorium, we are watching a movie with Alan Cumming in it!…snort!… We can’t remember what it is supposed to be about, just that he is in it… heh! …I think it is called “Tin Man”… snorkel!…Not sure really.

  52. Siberian Husky
    12:08 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Sam, you are way cuter than Babycakes. I much prefer the natural look to the show dog look.

    That reminds me…I found a t-shirt in a magazine that says, "A Dirty Dog is a Happy Dog". Maybe I can get Molly to order it for me online, and I'll give it to my mom to wear.

  53. Riö - The Evil
    12:10 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Stover!… I wish Spencer would quit wasting his time on Facebook and keep trying to type out his next novel… snort!…We all know how long it takes him to type out one answer… good grief!… Then if you get someone who will not leave the poor guy alone well, look at all that time wasted that could have been spent on that sticky situation with his new characters… grumble!

  54. B. Stover
    12:21 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Rio: A writer can't write nonstop. He deserves breaks and "someone" asks interesting questions.

    I looked up Ashanti and it has many references, including a film with Michael Caine. In Hindi it means "mental or physical disturbance." Now I'm really intrigued. Spence said it has aspects of the paranormal.

    Tin Man is a science fiction version of Wizard of Oz…a miniseries in 2007. Let me know how it is.

  55. Mollypop
    12:45 pm on June 21st, 2010

    When my Mom still worked instead of lying around all day, her company outsourced some of its computer work to India. One of the guys who arrived on site was named Ashanti.

  56. Mollypop
    12:48 pm on June 21st, 2010

    My dear, dear Siber-H – when we go on our next mission, I will get you that shirt.

  57. Riö - The Evil
    12:55 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Stover!… The Wizard of Oz reference has explained a lot!… whew!… Alan Cumming just made his unique entrance!…zowey!…So over the top as Tin Man with a zipper down the middle of his head cause the bad sorceress stole his brain… snort!…This is going to be good! If they don’t mess it up that is…heh!

    Molly! … For a moment there I thought you had told SiberH that you will get him that “shirt” without the “r”… gasp!…Then I re-read more carefully and realized you meant shirt, with an ‘r’…heh! …Its been a long day…sniffle!

  58. Riö - The Evil
    1:18 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Stover!…Actually, if I remember my Wizard of Oz correctly, Alan plays the Scarecrow who has no brain….wheeze!…We just met the Tin Man who has no heart! …ahhhh!…We still need to meet the Cowardly Lion…yeep!…this is a lot darker than the original… Hey! … There is no Toto! What the heck!?….snort!

  59. Melanie
    1:40 pm on June 21st, 2010

    A "sticky situation?" Knowing PSQA that could mean a multitude of things.

    Honey, molasses, or in a basement with bad guys!!!

  60. Mollypop
    1:40 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Rio – How funny about the 'shirt' because when I first wrote it, the 'r' was missing.

  61. Riö - The Evil
    1:53 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Molly!…Maybe I am becoming like her…cough!… I know that someone here has dreams that come true… snort! …When she was a kid it was stronger than now… grunt! …Her whole family is kind of that way… wheeze!… Even her dad knew he would not make it to Fathers Day and said so to her mother last Monday…sniff!

    1:59 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Princesses!…So where is the big battle of the Princess of the Blog anyway?? …snort!… Do these two Girl-Pups really want the title or are they all fluff and stuff?…heh!.. Where’s the Photos?… grunt!…Where are the Speeches!?… wheeze!… I know if I wanted to be Prince of theBlog I would be campaigning my ass off right now…grunt!

    Do you think we should ask them questions like they do in the Miss America pageant? I guess that is with 2 legged's not 4 legged's so maybe not. Still, it would be fun.

    The Librarian took me to two stores today, a quilt shop and a "wild bird" store. Both had dogs guarding their establishments. I didn't go out and get the camera at the quilt store, but I couldn't resist 'Studly' at the wild bird Store. He was a doll.

    He sat up for a treat too. Smart doggie!

    In Tin Man I think OZ stands for Outer Zone. MMMM. How dark? I think the series was on the SyFy channel. The original was for children wasn't it.

    Oh…I have to tell everyone about a birthday card I saw in the drug store. A pug is sitting inside an empty pizza box; the top of the box is on his back. He is licking his lips and pieces of crust are all around. The inside says, "Self-discipline is over rated. Happy Birthday."

    We have been busy today, but enjoyed the pictures of everyone. Melanie, the puppies are growing, and glad Gracie is feeling better. Sam, we have a Maltese living down the road. He doesn't look like they do in the shows, but he is way cool, and Mom says he has a big dog personality packed into that little body. He also does lots of tricks that I don't do cause I think they are silly. He will dance and roll over for a piece of cheese!

    2:21 pm on June 21st, 2010

    AbbieTheKat!…That would be fun to ask those two questions… snort!snort!…but they are still pups and getting their attention for that long would be grueling… grunt!… I think Princess-like photos and a short speech should do the trick!…heh!

  69. Siberian Husky
    2:26 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Staff, I think asking the girls questions would be a whole lot of fun. A talent contest might also be nice. We need more information than just a photo when it comes time to vote.

    Stover, that birthday card is hilarious. Whoever designed it must personally know Rio.

If they are up to the task, then lets do the question and answer thing and then the Talent Show!….HA!… But strangely enough, they are missing!… snort!… Hopefully they are busy writing their speeches and posing for Princess-like photos…snorkel! heh! cough! gasp!…Too funny!…wheeze!

    Wookie!… We will need Wookie to MC the whole show!…heh!

    Well ladies, You see we are making it more difficult now.

    You must post a photo. We prefer a close-up.

    You must make a little speech telling us why you would be the best princess.

    We are thinking about the question to ask….

    Hmmm, Rio? Siber-H? Wookie? Dawson? BStover? Any ideas?

    Alice's idea is "What is the purpose of napping?

    Opinion!… I think we should give these little girl-pups some time to come up with their campaign…snort!…They need photo shoots and speech writers and then they need to practice their special talent!…heh!…Not to mention all the baths and grooming they will need to look their best!…wheeze!…So lets say Friday night we all gather and see what these two have prepared…. snort!… Lexi, Sammie? Does this sound acceptable to you guys? Or will you be ready sooner than Friday night?… grunt!

    Heh!…Feel free to shoot this idea down down down in a pit of fire!…snort!

    I like the Friday Night idea. It will give us time to figure out good questions too.

    God dammit! Sorry, but it just pisses me off that it's not working!!! Grr! I will try again right now so hold on to your OWN tails!!!!

    If this one doesn't work, then I'm going to bite me own tail…

    And possibly-HOPEFULLY-this one MAY work, too, if the first one did…

    Okay, I'm prepared to bite my own tail right now…so, hanging on with all paws crossed in some way…

    Friday night is good for the Pack!

    Questions? Pondering.

  78. Lexi
    2:58 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Did it work? Do you guys see my pictures? Well, I do. But, just making sure…??? :(……

    You are all barking (and meowing) up the wrong tree. I'm not in a contest to be A princess, I already am THE Princess – the one from Chet's book. In the movie, he is going to carry me by the nape of my neck, gently I hope. I will run with blurry legs and hold my head in a determined manner, which is already how I run, and, well, that's what is needed.

  80. Lexi
    3:00 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Well, if it DID actually work, then yes, Rio. We will be ready by TOMORROW night, in fact, to prepare our speeches and the other crap that you mentioned!!! 🙂 Imma win! You'll all see!! Haha!!! 😛

    Oh my God….I think I've become Megan…

  81. Lexi
    3:02 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Why am I always posting at the same time with someone else? Is this a blessing or is this a curse?

    Sam! He's going to be carrying ME!! Grr! I will hire the Pit-Bully on you and you won't look so Princessy anymore! Ha!

    Just kidding!!! 😛

    Or am I….??

  82. Riö - The Evil
    3:02 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Lexi!…Maybe Megan can help you post your photo!…snort!…I think she was able to on the Friends of Chet page….wheeze!cough!

  83. Lexi
    3:04 pm on June 21st, 2010

    And-just for the thousandth time-does anyone see my pictures up on the blog, or do I have to smash my computer until it works…??

  84. Lexi
    3:05 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Rio! She actually did help me with my photos. She says I'm a natural!

    Well, she said that I was a natural idiot and this was all stupid, but, she still said that I was a natural…

  85. Riö - The Evil
    3:05 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Gaaaa!!…Lexi!…quit posting the same time as I do…gasp!

  86. Melanie
    3:06 pm on June 21st, 2010

    I think you need to smash your computer until your photo appears!

    WE are going to the Dehler Ballpark in Billings to watch the opening day of the Season of the Billings Mustangs.

    Be back later.


  89. Lexi
    3:10 pm on June 21st, 2010

    I run with blurry…ish…legs! I hold my head up in a determined-'weird' as Megan calls it-way when out for walks. I am small-a Hobbit, Megan says, and then laughs(whats a Hobbit, by the way?).My full name-not kidding-is Lexi Eileen Jo Lee Glynn. The Eileen is for our grandma who is in critical condition right now, and the Jo Lee part is because Megan felt like adding it, said it sounded cool, and she wanted to name me Jo Lee when they first brought me home, but Mommy saved me and kept it at Lexi. 🙂 Yay Mommy!

    If that isn't Princess, then what is??

  90. Lexi
    3:12 pm on June 21st, 2010

    So my photos didn't appear at all?? Okay, where does Daddy keep the hammer…???

    This really better work or I'm gonna…do something bad!! Grr!

    Oh no! I'm going swimming later again!?

    FRANKLIN!! FRANKLIN!! Help me, Lord of all Fire Hydrants. I've done nothing wrong. Except, maybe eating too many treats, but, I mean, come on. They're irresistible!!

    Lexi – Earlier today you posted where your picture was.

    That needs to go below the 'Submit Comment' where it says 'Upload Files.' You can type it in like it is above or you can use the browse function to find it on your computer. That's what will put it in your comment – then you can hit submit.

    4:34 pm on June 21st, 2010

    Melanie!….Right now I am watching a show called “Lie To Me”….snort!… If I could see your face right now I would know whether you are being true…grunt!…But I will have to take your word and blame poor Rosie for trying to humiliate me in front of the whole gang…wheeze!… I don’t even know much about Rosie to tell you the TRUTH!…grunt!

    Rio, I need you to come to the party. Us guys have to stick together. We can talk baseball.

    Lexi, Read the instructions that Molly and Melanie posted for you. I don't understand why Lexi is seeing the photos and we aren't.

  105. Siberian Husky
    4:41 pm on June 21st, 2010

  106. Riö - The Evil

    Well, we are back from the ballpark in time to say goodnight. The Mustangs won their home opener 11 to 4. The most gifted player seemed to be the shortstop named Hamilton. It was a lot of fun and the Librarian and I both had two glasses of fresh squeezed lemonade.

    It was a great night. Much nicer than last night with its tornado.

    Tomorrow we start home.

    Good Night All

    I travelled in a 20 seater airplane down south to the big city of Prince George. I'm taking a course for 2 days so I'll have to check in on this hotel computer at night to see the Princess Debates, the Gracie updates, and, of course, Chet's latest blog.
