Sneak Peek: The Iggy Chronicles, Volume 1

Bernie himself has a beautiful voice, although you couldn’t always call it soft. It softened now. “How about we take it from the top?” he said. And right then I knew that everything was cool, taking it from the top being one of our best techniques at the Little Detective Agency. Another good one is me grabbing the perp by the pant leg, how our cases usually end. “When did you first notice that Iggy was missing?”

“When Edna woke me this morning. Iggy usually sleeps at the foot of the bed but he wasn’t there.”

“Edna’s back home from the hospital?” Bernie said. “Good news.”

“They let her out yesterday,” said Mr. Parsons. “Home isn’t home without her. But … “

Mr. Parsons got a faraway look in his eyes. Bernie waited. I waited with him. Waiting was a big part of our job, but were we on the job? And if so, who was paying? Our finances were a mess, going all the way back to the Hawaiian pants episode – of which we now had a warehouse-full down in South Pedroia, having sold not one pair – followed not long after by the tin futures play, gone bad because of an earthquake in Bolivia, or maybe because the earthquake hadn’t happened, the details growing hazy in my mind. Hey! Did that mean there’d come a day I didn’t remember the tin futures at all? Right away I was back to feeling tip top.

– from the Iggy Chronicles, Volume 1, an e-short story coming on Tuesday, Aug. 13; meaning soon!

Welcome Bluebell, Freckles.

    I can’t wait for Tuesday!! I’m excited to read about Iggy’s adventure!

    Gooood morning, everyone. Mom said she’s going to climb out for a bit today and try to pay some b*#ls and go to the bank to start the “North to Alaska” fund.

    Wowser ICV1 as SneakPeek (which rhymes with Chetspeak).

    Everyone have a Fab Four Friday (44 yrs ago today) and mom will try to have a vertical viernes.

    We can’t wait either. But have to figure out how to get it, since Barb still has her old phone, that has no features other than allowing her to send and receive phone calls. She doesn’t even text. Her phone company, U.S. Cell has sold out, so she will be switching and updating her phone to something from this century. Then she can order Iggy like everyone else.

    Lovely day here, but a little on the cool side. Lyla is coming later this morning and she and Barb are heading up to Kelly’s to see the kids and meet little Sam – or not so little Sam.

    Good morning all.

    Spencer Quinn: The sneak peek has whetted my appetite for more, more, more.

    BStover: Whetted is a word, right?

    JoeE: You’re up early. Waiting for the ebook? I’m with Barb. It’ll take me that long to figure out how to get the ebook onto my little netbook.

    Dogomine: That is the best cat walk ever! (From last night’s post)

    Good morning! Mom is working from home today. I sit in the cube next to hers. I do my best work when she is here.
    EEK! Mom was so sure she had pre-ordered both ICV1 and TSATF. I just looked it up on her Amazon account. Sure enough, TSATF was pre-ordered, but I didn’t see ICV1. I ordered it for her. She will be so happy. And I don’t even need to let her know she forgot. See why humans love their cats?

    Dawson: Yes, “whet” is a word, derived from Old English hwettan.

    Rio: Does your friend like Broadchurch?

    You guys were cracking me up with all of your cat banter last night, especially Masquers’ reminder that cats were worshipped in ancient Egypt.

    It is also International World’s Indigenous People’s Day. Now that’s a mouthful. Happy Day to Amalia and the Storyteller. Have a great day at the Bazaar.

  15. Barb & Maggie
    10:20 am on August 9th, 2013

    Hope you all have a nice day. Barb is leaving shortly for the lake and a day of playing with most of the Grands. BBML

    10:28 am on August 9th, 2013

    LOVE the section of the Iggy story! We wonder if SQ will be as non-breed specific about Iggy as he has been about Chet. Just enough to get a general idea and then let the imagination fill in the details!

    BooBear here…Gus had to go to the v e t yesterday afternoon. He has decided he doesn’t need to eat very much. Mom and Dad are pretty worried. Doc has us trying something for 5 days and if that doesn’t increase his appetite, it’s back for bloodwork.

    Dawson – thank you. And we wish a happy WIPD to all. Celebrate by embracing a tradition of your background – maybe cook something traditional to your ethnic background, research what traditions are for your heritage, whatever connects you to this earth and to where your people originally came from.

    We are having a wonderful time, surrounded by good friends, good music, beautiful art and an incredible museum.

    We mentioned the two story glass walls and ceiling in this venue. This morning the rain was coming down in torrents. Being in this huge glassed in room was like being inside a waterfall. Everyone just stopped what they were doing to watch.

    What a magical way to start the day.

  19. Masquers
    11:01 am on August 9th, 2013

    BooBear: Sorry to hear Gus is having problems. Paws crossed the doc has the answer.

    Hi, Steve!

    11:03 am on August 9th, 2013

    Wet Friday Morning to you All! I think we are getting O’Howler’s weather today.

    I remember in one of our OFA’s descriptions of Iggy, Iggy’s jowls were going up and down as he jumped at the window. Hmmm. . now I wonder why I would remember something about jowls? snicker

    Happy Day to Golinka and the Storyteller. (very glad their show is INSIDE)

    HI JOE! Nice to “see” you again.

    And Steve and Moe! Howdy!

    I am looking forward to reading about Iggy. It will be in our “Cloud” ready to get to our Kindles.

    Gus? You must eat. Everyone is watching your every spoonful.

  21. BearSpiritDog
    11:04 am on August 9th, 2013

    Royal Mum: Your Beautiful Description has given the rest of us a Magical start to our day too. Good Fortune cannot be far behind.

    Put today on the calendar, mom has been up and dressed for 4 hrs and has accomplished her goals. While she naps we want to say: 1) Have loved the puddies and puppies and plants, 2)HRH B, let’s not forget words like “katatonic” and “katapult” (heh, heh) AND B&M, enjoy the grands and Best of sales to Golinka.

  23. Melanie
    11:10 am on August 9th, 2013

    Golinka and Storyteller, The Raven would have loved to be where you are . . He would go sit under the tin overhang behind the house when it rained. It reminded him of the house where he grew up. It was in Flint, MI.

    Barb&MagPie: I will try to find a news article I read about Irish Nannies in the US. They are not happy. Sounds a lot like what you are going through.

  24. O'Howlers
    11:16 am on August 9th, 2013

    Howdy! We finally pried T.C. away from the computer keys. T&G’s mama made us not hate rain so much. And Melanie, we also have a “tin roof” …actually steel but the sound is magnificent when it rains hard like it did last night.

    Nice to know HOH got dressed. We wish Mom would.

    GUS: Please please please eat!

    Good Morning All!

    Don’t be fooled by the lack of people in the seats. They are all over the venue, shopping their little hearts out.

  30. Masquers
    12:29 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Golinka! It worked purrfectly and it’s beautiful!
    Thank you for sharing with us.

  31. O'Howlers
    12:59 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Thanks for posting that video, A. Beautiful, and it brought back a happy memory here.

  32. Masquers
    1:03 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Amalia & Leonard: Shop til they drop…that’s what we like to hear…especially when they are sampling the wares of our favorite artisans.

  33. Herd of Hounds
    1:09 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Gus: You are in our thoughts.

    Golinka: Beautiful setting, fluid motion.

    4 days to ICV1…we are having trouble waiting.

  34. BearSpiritDog
    1:11 pm on August 9th, 2013

    4 Days! Is that more than two?

  35. Rose
    1:26 pm on August 9th, 2013

    BooBear: I am sending strong prayers that Gus will feel tip-top soon. I will keep him close to me under the quilt.

    Mom is twirling about her latest project, which of course has to do with those silly chickies. Pop is picking up a 10x5x6′ “dog” kennel. It has a shade cover on the top. Pop is putting a pair of wheels used for boat launchers on one end. They will pop up out of the way when the kennel is where they want it. They also got a “50 Gallon Mobile Chest” that has a handle that extends for easy wheeling those chicks around the yard to their rolling kennel. Pop is cutting openings in the top and side of the chest, and covering the openings with hardware mesh. Hey! Those darn chicks are getting our entire yard, bit by bit.
    Pictures when everything is assembled.

  37. Herd of Hounds
    1:54 pm on August 9th, 2013

    BSD: We know it is because our mom told us that the HOH is four and so is the POP (who cares about sushi!)

  38. Melanie
    2:04 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Hey O’Howler’s! Your Ma and Pa are making a chicken tractor. I saw them in VA when we lived there.

  39. Siber-H
    2:06 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Oh, for crying out loud. Maybe there is such a thing as a Siber tractor.

  40. Melanie
    2:06 pm on August 9th, 2013

    HOH, I think you should sneak Darah in with your mom. Not as a service dog . . Just sneak her in, and watch the fun begin!

  41. O'Howlers
    2:09 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Melanie, it can’t be a tractor, because it won’t have an engine or cut grass or spread manure or bale hay.
    Siber, sigh. Tell us about it.

  42. BearSpiritDog
    2:11 pm on August 9th, 2013

    O’Howlers: We hear tell these things are Predator Proof. Oh, no!

  43. Herd of Hounds
    2:12 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Melanie: Sharon here (in her best teacher voice) Not funny! The little angels already did that 🙁 Darah is learning “Go get you bone”. Ah…diversion 🙂

  44. Siber-H
    2:18 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Fellow Sibers, You could pull the chicken tractor around. tee hee
    You guys could give the chickens the ride of their lives.

  45. O'Howlers
    2:32 pm on August 9th, 2013

    OMD! Great idea, Siber! After all, we do need to practice our pulling skills in case Snowhook should need us…

  46. Tupper and Gilly
    3:08 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Ghost chickens, and now chicken tractors. Good grief.

    We admit it. We are not awaiting ICV1.
    We are not howling in anticipation. And we are not preordering it either.

    It seems that a very generous Famous Author brought Mama a signed copy when they visited on the beautiful Cape. So she read it to us. Youse guys are gonna LOVE it!

    For once we are ahead of the game.

    3:12 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Siber-H, I did look up Siber Tractors images for the fun of it. DON’T! None are there, but there are pictures of neeked ladies. Jeeze Louise. Not as bad as when I did research on the ANIMAL with the big teeth, flat tail and eats trees.

    That one I should have figured out before I googled it. So naive.

  49. Melanie
    3:13 pm on August 9th, 2013

    WHAT? And your BFF didn’t even get to glimpse it?

    Pondering revenge . .

  50. O'Howlers
    3:18 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Well, just wait ’til you see ours, Melanie. It will be De-Luxe! We especially love the really big chest they will use to move those gals around here. We Sibes are feeling R-E-S-P-E-C-T !

    Realized we had been a bit remiss on the Teddy photo front, so a couple of visual updates. The first will be Teddy on his favorite resting spot — the airconditioning vent in the great room. The second is Teddy surveying his empire (the back patio and beyond) from the windows in the great room. He is now having regular morning play dates with two doodles in the neighborhood (a golden doodle named Train and a labridoodle named Truffle). The three of them are a riot together, and Teddy loves running with the big dogs.

  52. Wookie's dad
    3:58 pm on August 9th, 2013

    and here’s the other picture:

  54. O'Howlers
    4:47 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Aww, Teddy is looking great. Thanks for posting, Wookie’s Dad!

  55. Siber-H
    5:10 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Thanks for the pictures, Wookies Dad. Teddy is beyond adorable. We think he is going to grow up to be a big guy.

  56. BearSpiritDog
    5:27 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Great photos of Teddy! We can’t get enough of the little guy.

  57. Melanie
    5:37 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Look at that fuzzy pup! Wonderful, Wöökie’s Dad, he must keep you guys running.



  58. B. Stover

    Melanie: Pizza? I’ll be right over.

    6:24 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Wookie’s Dad – Teddy is too cute. Fuzzy and roly-poly.

    Leavin’ on a jet plane in the morning. It seems a dream. ICVI is ordered and we’ll read it while at sea off the coast of Alaska. The only thing better would be meeting Bella and AJ and CHobbit. Perhaps another time.

    Take care of each other; we’ll miss you and will be thinking of you all.

  61. c.hobbit
    6:34 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Bluecat: have a great trip! It will be filled with beautiful vistas and will go fast. I’ve always wanted to go to your end port–someday.

    I’ve been ignoring the signs of the end of summer and the start of fall for over a week now. Can’t ignore the yellowing leaves, cooler night temperatures, increasing darkness. I no longer finish watering/mowing the lawn than I have to rake up bags of leaves! Hopefully a couple of more weeks before the raking starts. Anchorage is a couple of weeks behind in terms of yellowing of leaves.

  62. Pancho & Lefty
    6:35 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Wookie’s dad: The doodle costumes as much more comfortable them we originally thought they might be. The tail fell off of Pancho’s doodle disguise and we wonder if quilter extrodinaire, Wookie’s mom would be willing to fix it?

    BlueKat: Yes! Another time. Have a wonderful adventure!

  63. BearSpiritDog
    6:39 pm on August 9th, 2013

    C.Hobbit: We were thinking the same thing…isn’t it too Early for Cooler Nighttime Temperatures? It’s only the first week in August for Pete’s sake!
    Sorry to hear you haven’t found a solution to the Travel Problem for your canine pal.

    BlueCat: Have a Wonderful Trip!

  64. Gus and BooBear
    6:47 pm on August 9th, 2013

    We’ve been tallying the total number of Plunderers going north to Alaska for the great race. Have we left anyone out?
    Mom and Dad
    Oley Howler’s Mom and Pop
    Staff and Mr Staff
    Mollypop’s Mom
    Sharon and Daddy Dawg
    Maggie’s Barb
    And a maybe from Macy’s Mom and Dad
    And a maybe from Rio’s friend

    This is going to be great!!!!

    7:31 pm on August 9th, 2013

    BlueKat, sniff . . I thought I was going to have enough time to drive across country and hide in your luggage. Oh well, next time.

    Please take LOTS of photos. If you don’t want to put them up on the blog you can send them to me, me, me!

    Take care and Fly Safe.

    Happy Sails to you

Your Maw and Paw are going to have so much fun and they will be awestruck with the beauty of Alaska….snort!…My friend went on a cruise once this exact same time of year and she has always had a big soft spot for Alaska ever since. Maybe that is why she quills her little heart out for friends up there with a special kennel!…heh!…Anyways, they are going to have the time of their lives!…snort!…Blu-Kat, I hope you are somewhere special and someone is feeding you too much while they are away….snorkel!

  73. Tenzing
    8:49 pm on August 9th, 2013

    BooBear: There has been some discussion here about Gus. First, he needs to be under the quilt. Have I mention I make a great pillow? Wose is here and she brough Swedish fish. Delish. This brings me to my second point of discussion—you need to eat pal, plain and simple. No eating makes your maw and paw worrit.

  74. Tenzing
    8:52 pm on August 9th, 2013

    I must be as tired as my Lady. Typos! Oh, so many typos. Gah!

  75. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:54 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Puss N’ Boots!….Listen to Mr Tenzing…sniff!…He has been through it all and he knows. But my question is, why do you need to be told to eat?…snort!…Quit counting those calories, you are slim and trim enough…heh!…Just chow down pal!… chuffle!

  76. Annabelle
    8:57 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Maybe Gus is holding out for something salmon flavored. Why just this week, I supervised while Yummy Chummies were given to the team. What a treat! Two for Wyatt, one for me. Two for Orion, one for me. Two for Pancho, one for me, me, me. It was great.

  78. Barb & Maggie
    9:24 pm on August 9th, 2013

    We are thinking about Gus. Could we send some pounds your way?
    Gotta eat, big guy!

    We will be back tomorrow. Long day today, but fun. Kelly said 3 dogs is a lot, maybe two is better as far as chaos level. It will get easier after Sam is house broken. He is a cutie! He is now 32 lbs.

  79. SnowBella
    9:39 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Rio, have you watched the season finale of The Killing yet??? OMD!!! Mom is half way through it and it just turned a big big corner without slowing down. You and your friend have GOT to watch it!!!

    Gus here—I’m trying, guys. I don’t want to have to go back to the v e t again but I don’t want to eat. Mom is getting very worried about me.

  87. Annabelle
    10:00 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Rio: Required—that’s the key word, isn’t it? If it were up to me it would Yummy Chummies for Annabelle all the time.

    Rio: The Giant’s birthday is the same day as a certain E-story is released. I like your motto. I definitely think the Giant has gotten better with age. I think I’m going to go into town this weekend and get him an ice cream cake. It’s his favorite.

  95. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:29 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Ice-cream!…Wow!…And cake?…sniff!…What could be better than that? Holy Alaskan Birthday Cake!…Wooooo!

  96. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:31 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Cake!….If I were living my dream in that little cabin in the woods there, I would get me some of that cake, somehow, someway….yeeep!yeeep!

  97. SnowBella
    10:33 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Rio: If you were living your dream in your little cabin in the woods, we make sure you got a corner piece of that cake.

  98. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:40 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Rebecca!…You do not understand. When it comes to cake and/or cookies, I will be getting the cake and AJ will get the corner piece…heh!heh!…Somehow, someway…snort!

  99. SnowBella

    11:06 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Right!…Old Poot my @ss!..sniff!…Anonymous beings who post links alone with no explanation or introduction are beings to be wary of in my book-of-pug…grunt!

  103. BearSpiritDog

    11:11 pm on August 9th, 2013

    MIA!…Macy has not even been on the blog for days now…sniff!…Why would a real “friend” of hers show up without her being here?…Hmmmmm??

  107. Masquers
    11:12 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Of course, you are right to be wary of suspicious links, but oh my……..

    Sorry Puglet. I’m having trouble sleeping. I’m awake for a moment or two.

    Dogomine, friend of our Macy, that is amazing video. Why that Kat is just behaving is beyond me.

    The Giant is going to have a birthday. Will he be having ice cream cake?

    Does the entire Pack get to have a treat?

    Inquiring (and exhausted) minds want to now.

    Trying this sleeping thing again.

  110. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:17 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Melanie!…Why does she get up and post when she is not really awake?…grunt!…This is a FOUR year old question of mine…sniff!…I do believe she is a bone-a-fried Sleep-Blogger…wheeze!

  111. SnowBella
    11:22 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Melanie: The pack can blur over. We better get another, nay ten more cakes if the pack if helping the Giant celebrate.

    Rio: Is your Book of Pug in audio version, yet? I could listen to it on my commute.

    Katdog & BSD: Good to see you on this here blog. You’ve been away far too much, for far too long.

  112. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:23 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Out!…As Melanie said earlier, “I am outta here!”…grunt!…But then she came back as a zombie to post, but not me, when I am gone, I am gone, I am gone! You all can click on any damned links you want but don’t say I didn’t warn youse….grump!

  113. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Night, night.

  116. Staff
    11:25 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Mr.Staff is away at a Bluegrass Concert today through (maybe) Sunday (unless it rains, he is in a tent). Staff has spent many hours playing with beets and onions in the garden and the kitchen. Everything is ready to heat up and can tomorrow. Beet Pickles by noon. I love ’em. Mr.Staff, not so much. Sniff.

    Gus we are saying prayers for you. I hope the quilt helps. Remember Tenzing is a pillow.

    Sharon. Four hours! Way to go. What is this obsession people have with getting dressed. I change my pj’s every night so they are fresh and clean. That is all you really need. I just love living in the country where I can go out in the garden in my pj’s. Mr.Staff likes it for another more manly reason but I won’t discuss that here.

    Teddy looks like a fluffy pillow too. Such a cutie! Thanks for the pictures Wookie’s Dad.

    Dawson, if you download Amazon Kindle Cloud Player onto your netbook you can read the Iggy Chronicles on it. You have to order Iggy from Amazon.

    OMD Amalia. You have read a copy of the Iggy Chronicles already! And you didn’t let Melanie. Oh-oh.

    Those monarch eggs I collected have hatched and are growing so fast that I had to go out and get more milkweed twice today. They are just about the size (2″) to make their ‘j’ shape and turn into chrysalises. Six of them made it out of the eggs.

  117. SnowBella
    11:29 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Staff: I suspect Mr. Staff’s manly reason is the same reason the Giant appreciates living on 20 acres.

    I can’t wait for the Iggy Chronicles. Our Iggy is growing like a weed. He is the largest in the litter and the one with the least amount of manners. He is a love bug.

  118. Staff
    11:35 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Welcome back Dogomine, I remember you posting before. I remember you introducing yourself and saying you were a friend of Macy’s. Rio has been reading every other word. snicker.

    I must go to bed and rest up for tomorrow’s canning marathon. Nighty beet pickles all. (Except Liz, Good morning beet pickles to her.)

  119. Staff
    11:40 pm on August 9th, 2013

    The Turtleman sent me this picture of Dawson and the neighbors tree earlier. I didn’t see it until just now. Yikes.

    11:48 pm on August 9th, 2013

    The kat in the video lived with an elderly lady who showed her love by feeding. and feeding. and feeding until the poor cat weighed over 40 lbs. Apparently they could not tell he was a boy until he lost some weight. Poor guy!

    Macy’s mom is in a bummed cycle and doesn’t have anything to say, so she asked me to pop in and say hey. Hey

  121. Melanie
    11:50 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Dawson and a tree. I bet she likes them more in their upright and locked position.
    snicker . .

    Sorry Riö, I know I tell you I’m out of here and then I come back. So rude of me.

    Have tried everything to sleep. I am now trying some Sleepytime tea. Maybe that will help.

    The video that Dogomine put up is wonderful. I am just amazed that a Kat is doing this. I have seen dogs and horses, but Kats?

    Hopefully this will be the last time I post tonight. I hate it when fronts come through. One of the many reasons I want to live in a Hobbit hole. I’m hoping I wouldn’t feel the change in the weather pressure as much.

  122. Melanie
    11:52 pm on August 9th, 2013

    Hi Dogomine, Please tell Miss Macy we are missing her. She does put up some funny pictures.

    40 pounds of Kat. That is a lot of Kat. That’s like the Newfoundlands of Kats.
