Suzie’s the Best

Suzie came over. She’s a reporter for the Valley Tribune. Bernie likes her and so do I. She smells great. We sat out on the patio. “Think Chet would like a rawhide chew toy?” she said, reaching into her bag.

“You can bet the ranch,” Bernie said.

Ranch? Suzie had a ranch? News to me. But then out came the chew toy and I got pretty busy for a while.

“Making any headway on the Greed case?” Suzie said, or something like that.

“Maybe a little,” Bernie said. “It started a long time ago with a coverup.”

“Coverup of what?” said Suzie.

“A killing,” Bernie said. “An accidental killing, but a killing just the same.”

“Who got killed?”

“Still working on that,” Bernie said. “But the killers were Louis B. Mayer and Erich von Stroheim.”

    Gus and Wally here on a glorious finally cooler summer day. We are the two Jack Russells who run Miss Jan's Retirement Home, Orphanage and Rehabilitation Center for Challenged Equines, otherwise, Chet, known as a "ranch." Now you don't like horses (but you might like ours) and horses live on ranches and some ranches do indeed get bet. Or bought. Or that last might be farm, as in "bought the…." Get Bernie to explain, we think it relates. Anyway, Chet, we wanted you to know last night we had a BBQ in your honor and hid (buried) a ceremonial BBQ'd boneless porkchop even though both of us wanted it really really bad but Miss Jan said it is better to share, not that the horses have learned THAT lesson yet. But we Jack Russells are of a Higher Order so we did that for you, Chet.

    Hey Gus and Wally…are you anywhere near Portland, Oregon? I ask because we have been unreasonably hot here and finally got a cool morning today. I am fearful of the buried porkchop. Chet should have a BBQ in his honor every day, though!

    Gus and Wally would like ALR to know that they have heard Miss Jan say we live in a place called Harrisburg which she says is north of Ewwwwwwwwwgene. We find that fascinating because that place is said with wrinkled nose sort of like we do when we detect something worth rolling in.

    Ahh, what a coincidence! A work friend of mine is going to a class reunion in Harrisburg this weekend. She has been recently reunited with her highschool boyfriend. Knowing a few details, I am not sure I approve….but there will be some tongue wagging tonight! I know, tongues are for lapping and tails are for wagging!

    I love that country down there where you are. I do believe Miss Jan could easily take you on a jaunt east of Springfield right along the McKenzie River and right up McKenzie Pass to the beautiful Metolius! The fish will be jumping for the flies this evening.
