Thanksgiving comes up from time to time in the Chet and Bernie series. Here, from Dog On It, is what I believe is the first mention.

A guy with big shoulders and a gun on his hip led us across vast green lawns to a huge swimming pool. On a deck chair by the pool lay a fat old man in a tiny bathing suit. His skin was oiled and deeply tanned, just about the color and texture of a turkey Leda had left too long in the oven one Thanksgiving. I tried not to look.

    Eeeewwww! Poor Chet. Good thing his retinas weren’t burned out by that image. I always shudder when I read it. When I worked at Warner Bros. there was a manager who looked just like that. Fortunately, he didn’t wear tiny bathing suits into the office.

    Hobbit: I hope TLK is okay.

    Good day to all!

    Good day to everyone!
    Hope everyone has their turkey day plans made and are looking forward to it with baited breath, unless of course you’re having fish in which case you would have baity breath.

    I hope this rain on top of ice stops so it will be safe for me to go out and join family on Thanksgiving.

    There are many things to be Thankful for. Spence, the C&B books and this here blog. As they say, “I hope you and yours have a good night (and a delicious Thursday).”

    Heading out to my garage to do some sorting. I was supposed to be doing it when I got up this morning but I kept delaying. Off I go…
