Santa Fe

“So,” says Admin, “going to Santa Fe for the Left Coast Crime convention?”

“Apparently the hotel is full,” Spence says.

“And there’s just the one hotel in Santa Fe?”

“The fun of these things is all the readers and writers crammed together in one place.”

“Sounds swell,” Admin says.

Uh-oh. They’re glaring at each other again. Also this is one of those strange days when they’re looking very different from each other. There must be better human jobs than theirs – private eye work, for one! What could possibly beat bringing perps to justice? The expression on their faces when they realize they’re going down: we always get a kick out of that, me and Bernie.

“Wookie posted an interesting comment about Santa Fe yesterday,” Spence says. “Actually made me want to go there, even if it’s not what it used to be.”

“Who’s stopping you?” says Admin.

Spence doesn’t answer. He’s back to tapping away on the computer. Humans: sometimes I think they drew the short straw,whatever that means. And no offense.

    Is he or isn’t he….going to Santa Fe? I’ll have to go back to see what Wookie said.

    Good morning Chet and everyone.

    I think it’s the sopaipillas that Spence is interested in.

    Spence, I really hope you decide to go. For one thing, the Loretto Chapel is within walking distance of the hotel., which is famous for a mystery staircase. mom really loves Ghost Ranch, which was the summer home of Geogia O’Keffe.
    It is an hour or two away, but it is one of the most beautiful places on earth, IHHO.

    Weird!… What bugs me is, why did Spencer receive that email about being nominated AFTER the hotel was already booked full?….snort!….Doesn’t this bug anyone else?….grump!

    Good morning all – We agree that Spence really should go to Santa Fe, especially if he has never been. La Fonda is nice, but we think it would be good too to be able to get away from the crowds at the end of the day, or be able to sit down for a cup of coffee without being surrounded by adoring fans, of which we are sure that Spence has many. The ElDorado is also lovely, and right around the corner of the plaza from LaFonda.
    Come on Spence – you gotta go… some of us are waiting to live vicariously as you sample soppapillas and green chili

    10:46 am on January 25th, 2011

    Oh and by the way, The King’s Speech got 12 Oscar nominations! Told ya that the Corgis in the movie would make a difference!

  8. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:16 am on January 25th, 2011

    Movie!….Are there any Kats in that movie? ….grunt!

    West!…I think Spencer and gang should visit the Wild Wild West too…sniff!…There are other hotels that serve green chili….snort!… Then he could meet SiberH!…woooo!

  9. Basil and Sage
    11:59 am on January 25th, 2011

    No Kats IN the movie – Kats don’t act – they DIRECT

  10. Siber-H
    12:09 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Perhaps Spence received the email awhile before he actually told us about it. My dad and even my mom do that kind of stuff from time to time.

    Don’t forget yummy red chili when mentioning green chili. Dogs love Soppapillas! We had some just a couple of days ago.

    I think Chet and Bernie should get to Santa Fe so they could catch that dude that is robbing people at gunpoint in the downtown area. The cops aren’t having any luck.

    There are many fine hotels in Santa Fe.

  11. Melanie
    12:36 pm on January 25th, 2011

    There might be, of course, a reason why Spence does not want to go . . .

    Maybe he has to finish Book FOUR???

    Still, he needs a break. I bet all the people there in Cape Cod need a break. Considering we are having another snow storm. And the Eastern part of MA is getting hit worse than we are.

    12:41 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Spence: I hate to interrupt your tap, tap, tapping but…some rooms at the La Fonda have opened up. If you really want to go stay with all those writer types, you can.

  13. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:50 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Hotel!… I sent Rockie the Undercover Squirrel and his Hill Billy friends to do a little bed bug sniffing at the La Fonda hotel!…heh!… No bed bugs have been found, but they have managed to scare away a few guests to make room for Spencer, Chet and Bernie!…snort!

  14. Melanie
    1:09 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Riö, did Rocky and friends see any of the ghosts?

  15. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:19 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Ghosts!…. No, but they have seen a few goats down there….heh!

  16. Tupper and Gilly
    2:13 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Goats??? Goats????Do they need to be herded…huh,huh? Do they?

    Melanie!…How’s your knee today anyways?…snort!…Down Tupper!…down!

  18. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:03 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Books!…So my friend told me that her friend at the not-so-busy place, the one who couldn’t finish a book to save her life….snort!….she has blazed through two of the Charming Mr. Abrahams books already and is asking for another one….yeep!

  19. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:11 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Bah!… I don’t know if anyone cares or not, but the Edgar Awards website finally put up last year’s photos….sniff!

  20. B.Stover
    4:12 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Yes Melanie, how is your knee?

  21. B.Stover
    4:18 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Thanks Rio. I saw two of Spence.

  22. Siber-H
    4:20 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Rio, I care, so thanks. It took them awhile to get those photos up there.

    Melanie, How is your knee?

  23. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:24 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Stover!… That isn’t Spencer at the Awards, that is the Charming Mr. Abrahams….grunt!

  24. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:12 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Party!….Did everyone get invited to a party except for me?…snort!

  25. Siber-H
    5:55 pm on January 25th, 2011

    I’m here.

  26. Mollypop
    5:57 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Hi everybody, I’m back at Sam’s and it has warmed up like crazy. It was reported to be -26 near here the night before and I woke up to 28 degrees this morning. Back to ski country tomorrow. Mom got her refresher training so anybody need a backboard or a leg splint?

  27. Mollypop
    5:59 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Oh, and Mom will cut your $500 ski jacket off if necessary.

  28. B.Stover
    6:08 pm on January 25th, 2011

    It’s warmer here also Mollypop. Do people really pay $500 for a ski jacket?

  29. Melanie
    6:16 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Knee: Saw the acupuncturist today. Drove myself. He wants me to come in next week too and see if he can work on the swelling.

    Tomorrow I see the surgeon. I’m not driving; my nephew will be driving me.

    MollyPop: after doing 5 stairs today, up and down, I think I could use the splint. Not having a $500 ski jacket, she doesn’t have to worry about that.

  30. Kirby T. Penworthy
    6:56 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Hey y’all! I think Spence should do the Left Coast thing, especially since something has opened up at La Fonda. He already came down South and to Texas so several Plunderers could see him. So he needs to continue his national tour — or perhaps he should make that an international tour for all the out-of-country Plunderers!!!

    Melanie, are you on crutches, or just walking with a big brace?

  31. Mollypop
    6:57 pm on January 25th, 2011

    B. Ski jackets can be very expensive. Bogner can be way over $1000. Then you fall down, maybe blood or broken bone and here comes Mom with the scissors.

  32. Melanie
    7:09 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Kriby T: Graduated from a walker to a cane yesterday.

  33. Melanie
    7:10 pm on January 25th, 2011

    MollyPop: Does your mom enjoy using the scissors on more expensive jackets? Or will just any jacket do?

  34. B.Stover
    7:27 pm on January 25th, 2011

    It sounds like Mollypop’s mom enjoys cutting up expensive jackets.

  35. Mollypop
    7:27 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Mom has never had to do any of that. It’s part of the training.

  36. Mollypop
    7:31 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Mom is an Outdoor First Responder. She has to know what to do in an emergency and, thankfully, has never had to do it.

  37. Melanie
    7:32 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Okay. Sort of hoping she enjoyed it!

    Off to the other room to put my knee up. See you guys tomorrow after the appointment.

    I hope a good resolution comes out with the West Coast area. I think that March would be a great time to get out of the North East. Everyone south of us starts talking about Spring and we still can get snow storms.

    Maybe the Cape is different though.

  38. Siber-H
    7:45 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Mollypop, A historic ski lodge just outside of Buffalo burned to the ground. I was surprised that it made our local news.

  39. Mollypop
    7:54 pm on January 25th, 2011

    SiberH, I am surprised that made your news. It was a small ski area but old, sort of quaint.

  40. Mollypop
    7:57 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Melanie, what’s with your weather for tomorrow and why aren’t we getting it?

  41. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:16 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Open!…. Is anyone else watching The Australian Open?….snort!… I’m guessing this is where Liz is at today…heh!….In fact I think I see her there as a line judge…wooo!

    SiberH! … New Mexico must be reaching for news stories…sniff!… If Chet, Bernie and Spencer show up in March the media will go wild!…snort!

  42. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:29 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Speech!… In about 30 minutes or so we will turn over to hear the State of the Union Address….snort!… We’ve heard rumors that the President is evolving into a Republican…heh!…She says we need to see this for ourselves…snort! …I’m thinking is this like the movie The Fly where bits and parts of him fall off and the star character becomes something else, not really a fly, but some sort of a monster instead…grunt!

  43. Siber-H
    8:36 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Rio, I will be surprised if the local news covers that event at all. They would rather report on drive-bys and bank robberies. I hope I am wrong.
    I imagine they reported on the ski lodge burning because it was a good visual for them.

    If Chet can’t make the awards, I wonder if I could accept the award for him. I am, after all, the same species. They would almost have to let me take part in the banquet if I were Chet’s representative.

  44. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:46 pm on January 25th, 2011

    SiberH!…This is true! You could accept the award for him and give a short but sweet Husky speech like this …woooo!wooooo!woooooWOOOwooooo!…yark!yark!yark!…yank-woo-awl!!… Then you will have to deliver the award to Spencer…heh!…You could pull a sled and all the Kats could pile in and go with you…snuff!…I would go, but I’m not supposed to leave my yard…wheeze!

  45. Siber-H
    9:06 pm on January 25th, 2011

    uh, I don’t think I should be seen pulling any cats in a sled. I could detour a little and stop and pick up Macy since you don’t want to go.

  46. Barb & Maggie
    9:09 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Melanie, Good luck with the doctor. We are turning on the speech. BBL

  47. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:09 pm on January 25th, 2011

    President!….I sure hope this is a good speech tonight…sniff!…This country needs something strong and encouraging to hang onto….snort!

    Macy!…SiberH and MinPin sitting in a tree….L-I-C-K-I-N-G!…heh!

  48. Wolfie
    9:15 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Where is everyone tonight? There are only 44 posts!

  49. Siber-H
    9:15 pm on January 25th, 2011

    changing the subject…I was looking at customer reviews on Amazon of the movie, The Fan –“Baseball has never so thrilling as it is in this film”

  50. Siber-H
    9:16 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Wolfie, sorry..It isn’t you that I’m changing the subject on.

  51. Wolfie
    9:18 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Rio, I think it is a great idea for SiberH to accept the award if Spence decides not to attend. I hope he decides to go, though. It would be a nice way to honor Chet and Bernie.

  52. Wolfie
    9:21 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Siber I know that.

    I wonder what Mr Speaker is thinking about. He seems like he is daydreaming.
    We think it’s a good speech, but we like the POTUS.

  53. Wolfie
    9:23 pm on January 25th, 2011

    I’ll be glad when Dr. Bee gets her tests over with. I am worried.

  54. Siber-H
    9:27 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Me too, Wolfie. I hope they can get Stover all well soon.
    I’m glad Melanie sees the doctor tomorrow.

  55. B.Stover
    9:27 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Thank you Wolfie. I’ll be glad too.

    Speaker!…He looks sour and mad to us here…snort!… Maybe his sunburn is hurting…sniff!…So far so good for the speech!…wooo!

  57. B.Stover
    9:30 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Thank you SH.

  58. Macy the Min-Pin
    9:53 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Yes, please Mr. Husky please stop by here.

    Macy’s mom here – I don’t want to bring down the tone of the blog but you guys are about they only ones I have to talk to. Yesterday, through mostly the bad moods of customers, I was fired from the big yellow box. After 9 years. I am in shock and Macy may not have much to say. I would think that eventually a person would run out of tears, but not yet. I just wanted to share the burden to help lighten it. Thank you all so much.

  59. Tupper and Gilly
    10:02 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Macy’s mom – oh dear, how terrible for you! Is there any chance for an appeal to a higher authority? It does seem like 9 years ought to count for some kind of respect.
    Our Mama got fired a couple of years ago, just cuz she wouldn’t spy on another employee for her supervisor. But it turned out to be the best thing ever. She had never been on unemployment before, but she signed up. So, she had an income, AND she had some time to gather her thoughts, AND she was eligible for all kinds of training at the unemployment center, AND it made her realize that if the job was corrupt, it was better to not be part of it.
    And don’t think that just because you were “fired”, you can’t get unemployment…unless you were fired for stealing, or arson or some absolute criminal charge, you can file for an exception.
    Please don’t cry – the Plunderer’s will be on your side.

  60. B.Stover
    10:09 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Macy’s mom: That’s awful. They obviously don’t know what they’re doing. And there are other jobs out there. You may even find one that you like better.

  61. Barb & Maggie
    10:13 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Macy, I believe your mom can apply for unemployment. If you quit, then you cannot, unless you can prove unusual circumstances. Not nice to do that to you after 9 years. Everyone here will have fingers and paws crossed for you.

    Wolfie, we also like the POTUS, and yes, the Speaker looks a little sour.

  62. dawson
    10:14 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Macy MinPin’s Mom: I’m sure you feel awful and I feel for you. Seems there is no loyalty for long term employees who bend over backwards for their bosses. That boss made a mistake, pure and simple.

  63. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:22 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Speech!… That was a very, very good speech!…snort!… The President was even able to make the Speaker of the House feel good…heh!.. We here have not backed the Pres in the first two years, but now we are finding ourselves respecting him a lot more in the way he is bringing both political parties together….snort!… We hope it lasts and we hope all of his optimism comes true…sniff!….We here are optimistic too, at least right now..sniff!

  64. Macy the Min-Pin
    10:22 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Thank you for the kind words. My husband has already started the unemployment application. I on the other hand, just sit and cry or am zoned out on meds. It seems like the only way to keep from going completely over the edge. In my mind, there are just not that many opportunities for a “woman of a certain age”. The thought of becoming a cashier at Wal-Mart makes me want to stick my head in the oven, which is also pointless, as it is electric.

  65. Mollypop
    10:23 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Macy’s Mom, this is a big mistake on their part. Nine years! Tupper and Gully have said it best. When one door closes another one opens. We are a great support group for you.

  66. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:26 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Fired!….What the hell? ….snort!… She’s the one who goes into work when she should be home sick in bed!…grump!… MinPin, what happened? Were grumpy customers complaining about something she had no control over?…sniff!….This is sad news indeed, and we are very sorry to hear this MinPin…snuff!… To work somewhere for nine years and suddenly be fired, it’s just not right….sob!

  67. LizF
    10:30 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Macy’s mom, I’m glad to see a glimmer of humour in there. Keep your chin up girl, as T&G said, there’s probably a better job a little way ahead. Take heart. (I hear you on the age-working thing though…)

    Happy Australia Day everyone! We get a holiday so i was at the movies this morning (The Dilemma – it was shite, don’t waste your time). It’s HOT – going to be 100 this afternoon.

    I’m glad it was a good speech.

  68. Siber-H
    10:33 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Macy’s mom, I am so sorry. You are in our prayers and our love goes out to you. All of us are with you in this. These things so often have a way of working out for the best. You are an intelligent lady, and I think there is a better job waiting somewhere for you. Husky Hugs

  69. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:34 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Job!….MinPin remember to tell your gal that we here are completely responsible for Jasper’s gal getting her dream job after being out of work for over a year!…snort!…So you know she is in good hands with us here…heh!…We will make sure she gets an awesome job, something that she Really loves and is interested in doing!…gruff!… Somewhere where she will be really happy and her strengths are rewarded and needed very badly…snorkel!…She needs to take it easy for awhile and get completely healthy and think about what she would really like to do…sniffle!…Things will fall into place at the right time for her…wheeze!

  70. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:39 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Liz!…Please tell me you did not eat Vegemite today at some point in honor of Australia Day!…grunt!…Oh, and how did you manage to get away from the tennis court so early?…heh

  71. Siber-H
    10:40 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Macy’s mom…It is normal to feel completely down and wiped out at times like this, but I know that in time you will feel better. I have faith in you that you will be ready to take on the world when the time is right for you.

  72. santafetraveler
    10:48 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Glad to have Left Coast Crime coming to Santa Fe. If you are coming early or staying after the event, find out want’s going on in town at There’s a lot to see and do.

  73. Barb & Maggie
    10:54 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Everyone is offering good words of advise. You will feel better in a couple of days, when the shock wears off a little. If you go on unemployment, that will give you enough money coming in to enable you to take your time and find just the right place for you.

  74. C. Harris
    10:59 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Macy’s mom: sorry to hear your bad news. Nothing really to add but keep us posted in the days ahead as you pursue other options. We are on your side and will send you our thoughts and prayers and positive energies. Pamper yourself if you can to make yourself feel better. Someday you will look back on this time with different emotions. Unless it was absolutely the best job in the world with the best boss and best people and you absolutely loved it, you are just reacting to the shock of being fired–not of losing that particular job. If that makes sense.

  75. LizF
    11:02 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Rio, no I didn’t eat Vegemite today! Not because i don’t LOVE it though – it’s not good for me, being a yeast extract. But it’s soooo good! Have you tried it? on hot buttery toast, just a light lick of Vego? Mmmmmm.

    Macy’s mom, this is the place you’ve been going in to work even when you’ve been so sick? That always sounded bad.

  76. B.Stover

    Good night all.

  77. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:08 pm on January 25th, 2011

    Liz!…Because it is Australia Day and because there are American sports casters there reporting on it, they had them try a bite of Vegemite on toast and both of them gagged on it…heh!…saying it was the most horrible thing. …snort!…In return the Australian sports guy had a bite and loved it and then said Peanut Butter and Jelly made him want to puke…wheeze!….I’m curious, what do you think of a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich?…heh!

  78. Barb & Maggie
    11:10 pm on January 25th, 2011

    C Harris had some good points. This probably was not the end- all be-all job, and you will find something you love. They obviously did not appreciate your devotion.

    Good night, and a better day tomorrow for all.

  79. Riö - The Evil Pug

    11:18 pm on January 25th, 2011

    I’ve never had peanut butter and jelly! Even when we were on holiday in the US, noone offered it to me. It might well make me puke. I like PB though.

    Who’s playing in the tennis? I should go have a look. SInce it’s a holiday i’m working in the studio.

    M’sM, also, don’t look too far down the track, try not to bring in all of the future ‘I’ll never get another job, I’m too old’ thoughts into the Now. Take it day by day. Get over the shock.

    Liz! Right now they are showing us Murray vs Dolgopolov…heh! …He, Murray is barely ahead by one game. He is ranked 1 in Britian and 5th in the World…sniff! …We are not familiar with this Dolgopolov, although he looks alot like a girl…snort!…5-6 close very close. …sniff!

    So, who wants to work at a big orange box, anyway? Macy’s mom, you deserve way better than that! I will keep you in my Wolfie prayers. Take care. When God closes a door he opens a window.

    Hey Rio – could you say that Vegamite to Americans is like Lord of the Rings to Kats…just not to their taste?
    Macy’s Mom – just one last thought – the next time that you were scheduled to be at work, take that time to do something just for you! Paint your nails or call a friend who makes you laugh or do a crossword puzzle – just anything that YOU want to do that you wouldn’t be able to do if you were at work. And then toast yourself – you know, “here’s to me!” kind of toast.
    And never mind that “woman of a certain age” stuff…you are younger today than you will ever be again.
    Our Mama sends lots of support, but now she wants us to go to bed. Stay in touch.

    Dear Macy,
    Please give your Mom lots of hugs for us Kats and Staff. We think that once she gets over the shock of the firing she will have time to realize that a job where you get no credit for coming in sick is a job that you are better off out of. Tell her to take the unemployment and rest up and get better. Then look at her options.
    I think this might be God’s way of getting her healthy.
    Love and licks,
    Abbie and Alice

    Vegemite!…Liz, am I spelling it wrong?…sniff!…This learned flavor could be compared to the Lord Of the Rings trilogy I suspect…sniff!…Because the love of the story comes from reading the books…heh!…Possibly, the love of Vegemite comes from it being fed to people from toddler on….snort! …A comparison between a beloved series of novels and a sandwich spread is hard to make…gruffle!

    Tennis!…Murray is still battling on against his girl-like opponent…heh!

    You are spelling it right, yes – good pug. I agree, we are conditioned into it. But the reason i don’t like LOTR is that I tried to read the books when I was young, early teens, and tried and tried and just couldn’t get into them. I suspect it’s because they are SO male – so few female characters and the few there are spend very little time in the story. The movies, on the other hand, I thought were very well done.

    Yes, comparing them to a spread is a bit silly. I should compare it to, say, root beer. Do you drink that??

    Liz!…Well! Forget everything!…I can figure out what LOTR means you traitor….snuff!…You and the Kats have a good time together pal..grump!

    Liz!…I do not drink root beer…sniff!…I have been banned from beer altogether from an insipid poster by the name of “Lil Lexi”, but she never ever shows up…grump!…So why the hell am I still…?…sniff!…Anyway, Liz, I do not drink root beer, ever…grump!

    Bed!…Goodnight! My warm soft bed with all my baseball toys is waiting for me to snuggle into…heh!…Tennis will go on, and we will watch what we can later…snort!

    Lord of All Creation, tonight we bring Macy’s mom before you. We ask You to bring solace to her aching heart, and we ask you to work miracles within her life. We thank You for creating an opening for the good things that will be coming to her.

    Rio: I have tried several times in my (longish) life to read LOTR and I just couldn’t get into it–never could keep track of the strange names enough to keep the story going. And yet middle school and high school students start with The Hobbit and love it and go on to read all the rest. The students also loved the movies when they came out.

    Thank you all for the kind words. I know I will return for days to read them. Today I was just zonked out on sedatives, which at least got me through the day. They are starting to wear off now and the pain is more than I wish to deal with, so It is off to narco-dreamland for me. I really don’t know what I would do without your support. –Macy’s mom loves the bloggers
