Sweet Dreams, Baby

I had a dream. We were down in Mexico, me and Bernie. This was on the Peanut case, but the dream was all about Lola – those strange little watchful eyes of hers! – and this time nothing got thrown at me, and no one yelled, “Perro malo!” Whatever that happened to mean. It was great to be south of the border down Mexico way, even if it was just a dream.

I opened my eyes. Bernie was saying, “And then?”

Colonel Bob shrugged. The human shrug is interesting – I always watch for it. “I went to an ATM and withdrew my max – three hundred bucks – and gave it to him.”

“And that was the last time you saw Ray?”


Hey! Was this about Ray Jason, Bakersfield, all that? Had I missed something? I went over to Bernie. He scratched between my ears. That felt great. I didn’t have a worry in the world.

    I hope my mentioning Lola from Damn Yankees didn't cause Chet to think of her and miss critical information about the Colonel Bob case. Chet, Lola isn't that important. You need to pay attention. Wooks

    Rio. The Lola from Chet's dream is Lola the she dog that Chet met in Mexico on a case with Bernie in what may have been an early preview of TFAT that Chet blogged about early this year (but I don't remember exactly when). However good it started, like some of Chet's misadventures, it ended poorly, at least for Chet. Meanwhile, Lola from Damn YanKees was, well, just Lola (Gwen Virdon, I think), the seductive temptress of Satan himself. Hmmm, maybe there is a link afterall. Wookie

    Ray Jason is missing. We may be getting to the case.

    Rio: If you want to read about the Lola incident, go to the December 1 blog.

    Gus&BooBear: During the school year (other than reading for classes), I only read two or three books a month. During summer months I read a bit more. I'm a slow reader…….but I don't watch baseball.

    Rio. With an eye towards a modicum of discretion, let's just say it was semi-requited love interrupted by Lola's human mom by throwing things at Chet and calling him a "perro malo" (bad dog). Enough said. Wookie, Master of Discretion

    Wha!?… Are you kidding me?… snort!…. Chet you old son of a gun!… heh!… No wonder he was dreaming about Lola. I can almost forgive him for missing out on the conversation…wheeze!

    Wookie!… Did you see my post about putting up some more photo’s of yourself?…. grunt!… Not the ones where you are in disguise please… grunt!

    Rio. I'm actually on a recon mission today (you remember which one, don't you) and am posting from my Blackberry) but will try to post something once I return. I need to post in on Friends of Chet as well, so I can get into the slide show. Wookie

    Melanie! Hope your dad is okay! And do the doctors not know what it is that's wrong with him, or are just being meanie faces and not telling you? Because you have a right to know!

    Hey, Rio! Let's go attack the doctors until they tell Melanie what's up!

    That Mexico business reminds me of a Toby Keith song…but that’s a story for another day.

    Melanie!… wanted something funny!… snort!… Well, I have a story, I’ve been racking my brain and I finally remembered something about an old pal of mine …wheeze!

    When I was just a pup, my friend also had another older dog. She was so great! She taught me lots of tricks on how to get way more food than one could imagine. Her name was Cassie. My friend called her Miss Moo, because she was so fat and she was black and white spotted like a cow! No surprise there!

    Anyway, there was one trick she could not teach me because I was so short. Cassie was a Butt Snuffer. Nothing she liked better than to sniff human butts. She could sneak up behind any given person and sniff their butt for as long as she wanted and they never knew. She had a very gentle touch, just like a pickpocket.

    Well, many a morning my friend would drop me and Cassie off to be looked after by her mom and dad while she worked. Nothing gave me more joy than to see ole Cassie lift up mom’s bathrobe unbeknownst to mom, and sniff her butt! Literally lift mom’s bathrobe up get right in there! Heh!

    One day… HA!.. I will never forget it, my friend was there to pick me and Cassie up from her mom and dads house and their lovely neighbor, Jo, came over to just ask something quick. She was wearing a skirt! Right in front of my friend, her mom and me, Cassie snuck around back of Jo and lifted her skirt up and Sniffed her Butt!

    Jo had no idea! It took every ounce of strength we all had not to burst out laughing right there! Cassie had great timing too, she knew when to abandon the task. When Jo left we were all on the floor laughing our butts off!

    Jasper!…. Don’t mince words!….snort!… just tell us how you feel…. sneeze!… If what you are saying is true, then there is no reason to think there might be some little Chet juniors running around in Mexico… grunt!

    Ha! Rio! Funny story! I'm still laughing! You guys should've gotten a Dog-Sniffing-Butt Repelent!

    Well, if anyone knows anything else funny, we could use it.
    Dan’s appendix has ruptured and he’s being operated on now.
    He’s 81.

    Melanie!…I am saying a prayer for your dad right now…. Sniff!… Hang in there and try not to worry too much… snort!

    4:51 pm on April 12th, 2010

    Oh THANK YOU Rio!! What a wonderful butt sniffing dog! I guess you'd have to lift pant legs and sniff ankles.

    I just heard. Dad is out of surgery. Staying the night in ICU because of his heart (just in case)

    He's going up to room around 10:30, Zoë, my mom, and Martha, my sister, are staying until they can see him.

    Then they'll be coming home.


    Thanks to all of you. Reading your comments of thoughts and prayers and crossed paws have helped a lot!

    Melanie!… You are so very welcome!… snort!… You know I love a good excuse to tell a story. Heh! … The one I wrote for you is a True Story….grunt!… That’s the amazingly funny thing… gasp!… Cassie, aka Miss Moo!, was quite a girl… sniff!.. We all loved her very much, and we all miss her very much too… snuff!

    Melanie, we know it late after a long day. So glad to hear that your dad made it through the surgery. The great one up there must be wondering who is so special to be getting all the dog and cat prayers today. Paws & claws crossed for a speedy recovery. The Newfs are probably a little lost at home!

    Rio, about 24…its time for Jack to nut up and kick some serious butt!! Don't like seeing him sad but we know he's fixing to turn on the trouble. Do you think the Ex-president is up to some funny business with the Russians?

    And Chet…day dreaming about his one night stand down Mexico way!
