5.0 out of 5 stars -Best Chet and Bernie yet! –  January 16, 2015

If you love a dog, you’ll love Chet. Quinn had to spent a considerable amount of time imaging what it must be like to be a smart-a– dog, because he seems to nail the type on the head (Chet would have trouble with that metaphor). In this, the sixth book of the series, Bernie and Chet leave the Valley to find a missing inventor in Louisiana. Chet adapts to the change seamlessly, and finds his new environment just as exciting as the desert. Quinn has a way of smoothly laying out one complication after another, until the whole case takes on an entirely different slant. Colombian drug cartels, Eco-terrorists, down home Cajins and a tough wearing cowboy boots mix up the commotion. And then there’s a truly sinister non-human antagonist that only someone like Chet would have a prayer at beating (but not without the help of a tough, old, one-eyed woman named Mami).

If you share your life with a dog, you’ll find everything that’s great about him/her in Chet, and Chet just might clue you into what your own special partner is thinking. If you read only one Chet and Bernie mystery, let it be The Sound and the Furry.

    A cold, but sunny day here in Westchester! I am getting ready to go to my head shrinking appointment, and then the Prof and I plan to see “American Sniper.”

    BooBear: Please let your mom know that I received an e-mail from her that was sent to my spam folder.

    May everyone enjoy their Saturday!

    Review was long, but we really liked it. I like the word seamlessly. Must remember to incorporate that into conversations.

    LouLou, you have a busy morning and an important job.

    Wose, when we first saw the previews for American Sniper, we didn’t realize that it was the true story of Chris Kyle. How sad that he lived through all that and then was killed by a young man he was trying to help, who may have had PTSD.

    Good morning. It is still morning here.

    After dancing with Admin and the giraffes last night I decided I didn’t need to have pain killers while I was asleep. So I slept all night but this morning…ouch! I am back on the pills so I will be “el stupido” today but pain free. I won’t operate any machinery.

    I will be a lazybones along with the beautiful FOoD, Blondie and LucyLou. They are good company to keep.

    Happy Birthday to Griz and to the Storyteller who looks decades younger than 80! And many more!

    DianeC: Thank you for your kind offer but no. The mail service up to here is often questionable and for something that is perishable, I would not risk it.

    Rio: Tell your friend that we do get some chiles here. Like jalapenos. And then the occasional batch of other kinds. So when a batch of any kind of chiles comes in, I will buy them and try to make your green chile recipe. I could use all jalapenos but I think that would be way too hot. Wouldn’t it?

  25. Pepe le Pew
    1:34 pm on January 17th, 2015

    1:59 pm on January 17th, 2015

    Dawson!…Jalapenos would be great! She uses hot chilies with some habaneros, which are one of the hottest chilies you can find….snort!…It is the tomato mixture that has the habaneros in it. So I think jalapenos mixed with other chilies will be right up your alley-way!…chuffle!

    Does anyone know what “ghost peppers” are? We keep hearing about them all of a sudden.

  29. Staff
    2:10 pm on January 17th, 2015

    Dawson? Well you don’t really use the roof of your mouth anyway so if you burn it up, so what!

    I was going to use Anaheim Chilies. But they are not hot at all.

    Rio does your friend use chili’s without the seeds? I can do that.

    By the way, Dawson, your family wants to know what was cut? We are out of the loop.

  31. Herd of Hounds
    2:30 pm on January 17th, 2015

    A ghost pepper used to be considered the world’s hottest pepper. Its name varies from place to place but usually has ghost in it. It looks like an elongated habanero pepper.Great for searing your tonsils or clearing your sinuses or making sure your taste buds will never work again.

    LouLou: Upright, alert…and something else, I forget just now. Keep an eye on those pearls!

    Pepe le Pew: I don’t know who to believe but cooking 2 pounds of jalapenos will require some ventilation. That I do know.

    I just saw a young lad walking outside wearing a t shirt with his coat tied around his waist. It is only 27 degrees F. but the sun is shining brightly.

  34. O'Howlers
    2:41 pm on January 17th, 2015

    Howdy, All! We just caught up on last evening and this morning’s posts. Dawson? What cuts?
    Jalapenos are the mild peppers we use when we run out of habaneros. From what we know, ghost peppers are not something to be considered.
    It is now time for us all to take a nap.

    Very nice long review.

    I am checking in with you all to let you know everything is okay with us. The two-legged that lives here is extra busy and I have been outside sunbathing. It is a beautiful spring like day.

    Spence, I hope you are well on your say to a speedy recovery.

    I received an SDD from both Staff and BooBear. I have no idea what the SDDs are about, but I am not clicking on any links.

    Wose, Let us know if you and Grizz liked American Sniper. We want to see it.

    SiberH: Enjoy the Spring like day. That is only a dream here, although it is unseasonably warm.

    I keep forgetting what I got on here to say. Sheesh! I got distracted by a Spring like day.

    Oh yeah!
    Rio: Did the hot-shot’s wife make your green chile recipe? Did she give you a review?

    Mr. Husky, You are right to be safe on the computer but what I sent you was a link about an e-book that I thought you might be interested in. It is on sale right now at Simon and Schuster.

    The Heart Of Everything That Is by Bob Drury.

  43. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:21 pm on January 17th, 2015

    Recipe!…She pretty much used my friend’s recipe as a base and then did everything different….snort!…She used a pork roast and cooked it in a pressure cooker. She made her own chicken broth, and used fresh tomatoes and a little bit of habanero pepper. The actual green chilies they could only find were mild. So her version came out MOST EXCELLENT according to the hotshot, but it was not spicy enough for him….grunt!…So once she finds the hot green chilies I think she will have a great recipe….snorkel!

  44. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:23 pm on January 17th, 2015

    At this age, it’s all embarrassing! I did have a “spinal”, which was interesting and tingly. They did cut below the waist and above the knees but no bones were involved. Ouch! Time for more pills and a lay-down. The rest I will leave to your imagination. Heh, heh.

    OK, Dawson, we will leave it at that. No sense in over-sharing. We are glad you are feeling a little better.

    Just finished on line ordering some garden seeds from Seeds of Change. All organic, of course. We like to order from the smaller companies, rather than Burpee. Is it springtime yet? I think Siber
    said it was. Once the package arrives, we will re-mail the 3 tomato varieties to our hippie friend Gary to start for our garden.

    Happiest of birthdays to the Storyteller!

    Awesome, hope you are feeling tip-top soon.

    Siber-H: “American Sniper” was a great film. In fact, I will stick my neck out and say that it is the best film Clint Eastwood has directed. Bradley Cooper was phenomenal as Chris Kyle. In my humble opinion, it would be a tragedy if he does not win the Best Actor Academy Award.

    I will be buying the book tomorrow on our Sunday visit to Barnes and Noble.

    I made hummus for the first time today. It was gobbled up by the Turtleman and Mr.Fireslippers and thier wives. There was a little left so on the advice of the Turtleman I sauted some onions, garlic and thinly sliced and diced ham in olive oil and added some of the hummus and some chicken stock and made a soup for Dad.

    He said it was ‘different’. Here different is not a compliment. I did sort of follow a recipe so asked if he thought some sour cream would help. He is eating it so I guess it is OK.

  65. Herd of Hounds
    7:32 pm on January 17th, 2015

    Staff, we here in TN love hummus since mom learned to make it form a transplanted Isreali. Easy, tasty (we put olive oil and lemon juice to dip with it). WE also like baba granouj (sp?) which is a baked eggplant dip.

    Dawson–How about: http://www.sandiaseed.com/? Grow your own? (Indoors, obviously)There’s also: https://www.mohotta.com/ a company whose catalogs I used to almost literally devour. They no longer have as interesting an array of desriptions (one used to close with the words “Stand up straight and don’t slouch”) but the array of product–including ghost pepper items is truly impressive.

    My news–Had a little touchup to the face today and now look like I was punched in both eyes by someone holding a knife. Although I was gone for 4 hours, NO ONE was indiscreet in the house, so we all get treats tonight (I will share mine with some giraffe friends).

    HOH–Baked potato w/ baba ganoush!!! Yes!!! (I was actually desperately hunting for some pre-made in the mideastern part of Anaheim yesterday and saw a woman with a face veil for the very first time (in real life in the U.S.–not on TV or in a movie) Got a great deal on the baba, too.

  74. Herd of Hounds
    8:44 pm on January 17th, 2015

    Diane, the best thing about baba granouj, or hummus or any middleastern
    dish is that they are so imbedd in the cuilture that almost ALL Med cultures claim to have invented the dish and so perhaps they ALL really did.

    I love hummus. Not so sure about hummus soup.

  76. Staff
    9:10 pm on January 17th, 2015

    HOH I used Olive oil, lemon juice and zest, garlic, tahini and garbanzo beans, of course. My secret ingredient was ripe green olives. I suspect that is what made the soup different. But it sure made the hummus great! There is some left.

    Dad did eat all the soup so it must not have been too bad. It tasted good to me but my taster is wonky so therefore…

  77. Staff
    9:28 pm on January 17th, 2015

    I have several recipes for garbanzo bean soup and they were quite similar to the hummus. It wasn’t very far a stretch.

    By the way the book is making me laugh out loud! Thank you.

    I decorated Grizz this morning in Happy Birthday Sparkles this morning while he was still sleeping. Bedazzling the StoryTeller for his birthday has not been so easy. The leather on his braids must make him more aerodynamic because he’s gotten away every time. I will wait until he distracted by surprises to do my work with ribbons and bows. Until then, happy birthday to Grizz and the StoryTeller!

    Diane, just say: you should see the other guy! That’s what mom said in the ER when she had an infected tear duct and her faceswelled up like a balloon.
    The hajib (women’s veil) is seen here more now than a decade ago. 2 winters ago mom tried wrapping her head that way during a really cold spell. Toasty warm but OMD the looks! Hard to see how some women (especially menopausal ones) don’t melt!

    What a great party! And we pulled off the surprise part which is very difficult with someone as intuitive as the Storyteller.
    We couldn’t say anything about this before because someone is known to lurk on the blog. But we can tell you the story now. We have been planning this for a while, at a local restaurant. Made reservations, and then THIS Thursday, the restaurant called and CANCELLED our reservation because they were overbooked. WHAT???? I have people coming from out of state, invitations are out and have been accepted. Yeep!!!!
    So, we went to our favorite sushi place and asked them if they could host a party at the last minute. They said yes, so we had to contact everyone and switch things.
    A bunch of people came down from the Storyteller’s reservation and brought him a ceremonial headdress designating him as an honored elder.
    But we did it. This morning Gramp offered to take us “out for dinner”. I said we should dress up because it was a birthday. We got to the restaurant and the whole gang in the back half started singing Happy Birthday – and everyone else in the restaurant joined in.
    Pictures coming up.

    Ya gotta love BelleStar’s enthusiasm! We’ve been wracking (sounds painful) our collective brains but can’t figure out how to help. I, LLtheL, have crash cart down pat but no hospital is involved. Darah is a great newfie-table if you could keep him in one spot. Pookie isn’t any help and Blondie is snoring so loudly, the window is rattling! Let us know if we can help otherwise mom is going to drag us off to bed 🙁

    The bows and ribbons I have pale in comparison to a ceremonial headdress.

    The cake was designed by our “daughter” Jenn. It is a representation of an Iroquois wampum belt.

    It looks like a great time and a special memory. T&G’s Mama should be proud to have pulled it off in the face of adversity! Our own pink bulldozer and her Storyteller 🙂

    What fun the birthday party was! Leonard was surprised and quite moved that so many came to honor him. Zoe was invited to attend, but my brother and his family were visiting from Maine, so she stayed home. A good time was had by all!

    What a beautiful moment. Can’t believe he is 80! Thought that must be a mistake, as he looks more like 65. Thank you for posting some great pictures.

    Night all.

    Tupper’s Mama: Congratulations for throwing a great surprise party for the Storyteller and congratulations to the Storyteller for being an honored Elder. The headdress is amazing and the Storyteller wears it with dignity and pride. I would love a piece of the Iroquois wampum belt cake!
