Santa’s On The Roof!

SANTA 365, that is. Today is pub date for the new C&B e-short.Here’s what Book-Splot says:
‘Santa 365’ is a great read to get you in the holiday spirit . . . and then steal away some of that cheer. With Chet’s brilliant and humorous observations and narration style, this is a read for fans of the series or new readers.

    Just like Santa coming down the chimney, it was downloaded to my Kindle overnight!

    Prayers for Amalia and Leonard! We know all will be A-OK!!

    Yeah for the new short story. Mom won’t get to read it until later in the weekend. Too much pre-holiday stuff to get done.

    Thinking on the Storyteller and the Royal Mum today.

    I have not yet downloaded “Santa 365”, but I will! I just don’t know if I should read it now, or at Christmas. Decisions, decisions.

    Cool GOOGLE doodle today.

    Golinka: Did you notice a couple of extra nurses when the surgery team came for the Storyteller? Belle Stare and I will stay in the OR with him. The surgeon has already been made aware of my firm but loving paw and has been informed that the Storyteller is special so he best not mess up. The surgeon was a bit surprised to find that a couple of nurses were our kind. As a result, Belle Starr and I are wearing full body fur nets. It’s a small sacrifice to stay with the Storyteller.

    I can’t figure out how to download this. I am so frustrated I could scream. I don’t have Kindle, I have Nook. HELP!

    10:25 am on November 24th, 2015

    I wish I could help, Colette, but I am unfamiliar with the Nook?

    WhooooHooooo! Santa 365 is in my mailbox!

    Colette Verdun: I don’t have a kindle or a nook but I had to download the kindle app from amazon, then order the book. It will be sent to your computer.

    Prayers for strength going to Golinka and the Storyteller today.

    Dear Family – once again your pawrayers have been answered with a resounding “yes!”
    The surgeon just came out and said they decided to go with a smaller procedure, that instead of removing two broken pieces, they decided to leave them in but stabilize them with a plate, more modern screws, and we think hockey tape may or may not have been involved.
    The best news is that toes are wiggling. So no damage to the spinal column. The Storyteller will be walking on his own again soon!!!
    In case you don’t know, woo hooing very loudly in the surgical waiting room is frowned upon. So please, if you are somewhere that won’t cause stares or calls to police, please give a top volume “woo hoo” for me
    And thanks.

    10:51 am on November 24th, 2015

    Whoo Hooing done here. I scared the cats…snicker.

    Rose The decision about now or at Christmas. No problem. Choose BOTH!.

    It was on my Kindle at 11:55 last night. I was in bed. I read the first two pages to MR.Staff. Laugh out Loud funny. I love Esme already! heh heh heh That is not a spoiler. (I haven’t read any further than 2 pages)

  13. Staff
    10:53 am on November 24th, 2015

    I have it from an authoritative source that it was pink sparkly duct tape.

  14. Luna
    10:59 am on November 24th, 2015

    Golinka: Woo and hoo!

    More to Golinka: In addition to Belle Starr being part of the surgical team, there was also a third. The Creator was in the OR, too. The Creator was running a few minutes behind schedule what with being very busy these days.

    Staff: It’s like you were in the OR, too. The surgeon didn’t batt an eye lash when Belle Starr handss him sparkly duct tape instead of a scalpel. He took my firm but loving paw lecture to heart. I like this surgeon.

  15. dawson
    11:01 am on November 24th, 2015

    A loud and resounding Whoooohooooing is in progress.

    Thanks Golinka for letting us know. Big hugs!

    Colette: Sorry, I know the above information does not get the ebook onto your Nook. It does send it to your email on a tablet or your desk computer. I feel your frustration and have been there with these e books. Good luck! I know I have also used Adobe Digital Books to get a previous ebook but as I recall that was also frustrating.

    11:06 am on November 24th, 2015

    Typos! Gah!

    Golinka: The Thieves are revving up the wheelchairs in hopes to help the Storyteller wake up.

    I hear from the operating room that the odor of eau-de-skunk wafting from Zeus is bringing the Storyteller around rather faster than normal.

    11:26 am on November 24th, 2015

    Mom’s really loud WHOOO-HOO! got her into a little trouble in the library. An explanation to the librarians brought 4 more whoo-hoos for the Storyteller. Break is over so mom had to go back to work. Way to go Storyteller!

    11:29 am on November 24th, 2015

    WOO HOO!

    Yay for hockey tape and Plunderer Prayer and the Creator, not necessarily in that order.

    365 is here 🙂

    Nothing like sparkles and hockey tape to make a surgery successful!

    12:06 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Another WooHoo from the West Coast and a Yay! Nothing like an extra Yay!

    Funny in two pages, Staff? I’m in! Did not pre-order but hopefully Santa 365 isn’t all sold out….Ha! Silly me, sold out is so 20 years ago.

  23. ALR
    12:10 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Done. How quick was that? Quick as a Storyteller’s recovery!

  24. Wolfie
    12:23 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Woo-hoo for the Storyteller! What a wonderful Thanksgiving gift!

    Thank you to all who assisted, especially the Creator and the Healer!

  27. Wolfie

    1:09 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Ummm- there seems to be a bit of a kerfuffle at the hospital. Seems the OR cleaning g team wants to know who was shedding, and the dietary department is trying to figure out how Slim Jims got onto the menu choice list.

    And apparently two of the wheelchairs now have Racing stripes.

    Done in pink glitter.

  30. Masquers
    1:09 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Pink sparkly duct tape…never leave home without it. Heh.

    Wolfie: I have missed you on the blog! I can not tell you how happy I will be to receive Wolfie’s Best Toffee! Grizz will be even happier!

  32. Luna

  35. Luna, Belle Starr, and One & All

    What’s this? There has been antics in the hospital and we missed it? Gah!

    wOOhOO for the Storyteller and for Wolfie’s toffee!!! Best candy EVER!

    To those who mentioned a Nook download problem, I had the same difficulty. I thought that there was an issue because my credit card had changed, but I re-ordered the book for download and I received an email from B&N saying that it was “Out of Stock”. Yes, it said that, and, yes, there’s a mystery I’m not sure Chet and Bernie could solve.

    So, Amazon Kindle to the rescue!

    2:07 pm on November 24th, 2015

    I have not eaten a piece of candy since I started my healthy eating May 1st. I think I am going to be making a change, at least short-term. No one can pass up the World’s Best Toffee!

    Another YAY coming out of northern Illinois for The Storyteller and his bride.

  40. Masquers
    2:13 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Colette and Charles: Amazon is always our go-to-place with no problems thus far.

    BML: You are made the right decision. The holidays are special.

  41. Masquers

    You also could contact Barnes and Noble for assistance.

    Did I hear mention of Wolfie’s toffee? Oh my!

  43. ALR
    2:33 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Charles Bryan…..and here I thought sold out was a thing of the past, and then B&N comes up with “out of stock”! Funny

  44. Masquers
    2:35 pm on November 24th, 2015

    BML: Gah. How about “you have made”.

    2:43 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Masquers, I know what you meant.

  46. Wose-the small and meek
    2:52 pm on November 24th, 2015

    I have a nook, and had pre-ordered “Santa 365.” I could not download it, so I called nook support. Because I had purchased the book with cash at a brick and mortar B&N, support told me I had to go to the store. I called the store, and one of the booksellers was kind enough to help me out. He suggested I “archive” the book. I did, thought I lost it, but it reappeared. Don’t know how I did it, but it is done. I was told that there is a new software update, but since I still read paper books, I just turned on my nook this morning…not sure about the update.

  47. Wose-the small and meek

    For all youse Kindle owners. I am thinking about buying the Kindle 6″ advertised at $49.99. Any thoughts?

  48. Staff
    3:07 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Just checking back in after reading Christmas 365. This is my review.
    It is a fun book to read. I recommend it highly. I especially liked meeting Bernie’s Mom. She seems like a free spirit.

    (I was tempted, Queen B, but refrained!)

  49. B.Stover
    3:24 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Rose: I have a Kindle 7 that looks much like the Kindle 6. I love it and I paid much more than $49. The 6 is not back-lit as the 7 is so you would have to have a light on at night.

    Thank you Staff!

  50. Tupper's Mama
    4:55 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Heading back to the hospital. We will pass on all your woo hoos on to the Storyteller.

    Belle Starr – not the IV pole, my dear. Pink sparkles are not good for the drip counter.

  51. Linda
    5:07 pm on November 24th, 2015

    T&G’s Mama: Woo-hoo from Wisconsin!

    Staff: Woo-hoo for the review!

    Wolfie: Woo-hoo for the toffee!

    Everyone else: Woo-hoo just because!

  52. Belle Starr
    5:17 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Golinka: Duly noted on the sparkles and IV drip. I don’t mean to cause alarm, but they had to take the Christmas decorations off the Storyteller for the surgery. When you see him, please tell him not to worry and that I will be by later this afternoon to re-decorate him.

    Bare to the worlt! When that Damn Pixie had emergency back surgery she made the anesthesiologist and the surgeon promise to make sure she was good and out before they flipped her over and bared her backside for the surgery. I think the Storyteller demanded the same promise today. He and these Damn Pixie have matching scars and bent hardware.

  53. Wose-the small and meek
    7:01 pm on November 24th, 2015

    HRH,B: Thanks for the Kindle info. I am guessing that this particular Kindle probably compares to the original nook black and white, which I own.

    Staff: Great review!

    Belle Starr: With all that metal inside the Storyteller and the Pixie, do magnets stick on their backs? Are metal detectors set off in airports? Heh! heh!

  54. Masquers
    7:22 pm on November 24th, 2015

    or….contact Chet and Bernie for assistance.

  55. Masquers
    7:26 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Here we are already on the flip side…that last kat nap has me feeling like I’m missing a beat of the drum.

  56. Tupper's Mama
    7:37 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Wose – hmmm. Maybe that explains why the Storyteller and Bella have such a magnetic attraction.

    8:59 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Creator, Our prayer is one of gratitude, one of healing. Thank you for the Storyteller. By his existence, he is special. He is kind. He is caring. He is guided. Because of this, he is special.

    Creator, thank you for holding him in your hands during the surgery. We ask the same be true for his recovery. Please be with him to mend his body quickly and properly. In the early days, please help him to sleep and heal. In the days to come, please help him to regain strength and heal. In the days far from now, please help him to improve and heal.

    Creator, Pain is hard on those who love us. While you tend to the Storyteller’s physical well being, please tend to Amalia’s heart. Please calm her, please comfort her.

    Creator, Thank you for the Storyteller. Please be with him, guide and direct him, watch over and protect him, calm and comfort him, help and heal him.

    He is special.

    No getting out until he gets in a couple of those infamous wheelchair races.
    Bad news about your Kindle, Riõ.

    9:59 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Amen to the prayer. I am just now home from school. The upside to assigning multi-faceted projects to students is that they get engaged and have fun doing the work. The downside is correcting and grading! I vowed to stay until I completed the work.
    I am saving the book until December, which is not that far away.

  85. Riõ - The Evil Pug
    11:34 pm on November 24th, 2015

    Leonard!…We all here are praying you have a very restful night at the Hospital (unheard of) but we are very hopeful this will happen. Beau’s knobby-knees are proof!…snort!

    Golinka!…Please get some good sleep in your own bed and let both spice-dawgs in bed with you tonight…sniff!…You need them and they need youse!…wuffle!

    Thieves!…Just stand down! Stand Down!…grunt!

  86. Thieves!
    12:40 am on November 25th, 2015

    Rio: Stand down. Heh!

    Beau: We have no doubt that your knobbly-kneed pug prayers has already done wonders for the Storyteller. Our Lady says, “Oh, to have such faith as a certain black pug!” She makes no mention of the faith of certain thieves.

    Nighty noodles.
