Bernie tapped his fingers on the wheel and began to sing. “It came upon a midnight clear, bum bumpity bumpity bum.” Wow! What a great song, and brand new to me! Bernie has the best singing voice you’ve ever heard and sometimes accompanies himself on the ukulele, which he can do while he’s driving, no problem, although we didn’t have the ukulele today. Pretty much the only song he’d been singing recently was Death Don’t Have No Mercy. I liked this midnight clear one better, but anything Bernie wanted to sing was fine with me.

    Chet is making me laugh as usual.

    Good day to all.

    Good day to everyone!
    We wonder what Bernie would think if Chet sang along?

    Afternoon, friends! It’s getting harder and harder to live in Texas!
    NBC news reports that the Southlake ISD is telling its teachers that they can’t teach about the Holocaust without teaching opposing views!! OMD!!
    Southlake is a predominantly white wealthy area on the northwest side of Dallas. They also wouldn’t let teachers teach about systemic racism after the BLM movement. Said they weren’t racist so shouldn’t be taught to their kids.
    Sorry about the rant! But it made me so mad when I heard that.

    (BooBear’s Mom. Don’t count the teachers out. They all won’t be compliant. They are trained to teach and they will. Even if it means going to court.)

    Has anyone fantasized a Chet and Bernie movie? Or even a franchise of movies, like Indiana Jones or Fast and Furious? Has anyone though of who might be cast in those movies?

    As I’ve been reading the books, I am increasingly thinking of Owen Wilson playing Bernie. (he has the nose for it)

    Mliauppa! We have spent many hours in years past talking about a Chet and Bernie movie. Amazing how we all see Bernie differently. I think the final consensus was that Hollywood would ruin a great book.

    BooBear!…So what exactly are the opposing views to the Holocaust?? …gruffle!

    While I agree that Hollywood would never get it “right”, there are some upsides. One is that it would supply OFA with plenty of revenue to keep on writing and two it would bring more people to buying the books, thus keeping OFA with contracts with his publisher.

    I still see Owen Wilson in my head when I read. Not so much the voice, though.

    Río. The “opposing views” would be that it never happened and it’s all “fake news”. Brought to you by the “intelligent design” people.
