Titles, Anybody?

Ms. Publicist reminds us that you have a chance to name the next Chet and Bernie mystery. All we know about it is it takes place mostly in the Big Easy and nearby bayou country. Please email spencerquinntitles@gmail.com with your title ideas in the subject line. That way we’ll have them all in one place – and no one can steal your ideas! Not that anyone would ever do that!

Welcome Jake, Gracie Pretzelpants, Oliver & Abbey, Brady, Penny.

    Staff! Snow! Sounds like fun!!!

    Rio! I hope you, your friend and Beau are sleeping in this morning.

    Terry, I would LOVE to see the Yankees in a playoff game at the Stadium…Tix are so expensive, guess the living room will have to do.

    Sammie and MollyPop’s Mom: Yipee!

    I haven’t been able to think of a title. Remember I liked “To Bark, Perchance to Bite.”

    Good morning all.

    We are trying so hard to come up with a good title. So far, no go.

    Mr.Staff posted this on facebook last night. If you need an explanation of the Ex-cub factor we can provide it.

    “The MLB network guy predicted that the Oakland would beat Texas because of the infamous ex-Cub factor. Texas has more ex-Cubs than Oakland- and the starting pitcher and catcher for Texas today were both ex-Cubs. Not only that – they were Cubs this year. Current score is 12-5 Oakland.”

    Thank you, Staff.
    I think we all needed the Ode To Joy.

    B: You are so right!

    Terry: Saw your post from last night. Yuji is waiting for you up-top this morning.

    Hi Steve!

    Good Morning All.

    Good morning all. No great book titles coming forth from here either.

    The tree in front of our window has turned a most amazing yellow gold, breathtaking, but now the leaves are starting to fall. Bummer.

    Macy, Very well said last night about the Rangers. I still haven’t recovered from last year’s World Series and now the Rangers go and do this.

    Good Morning Everyone!

    Tip-Top! …Of the morning!…snort!… We three are all very happy and what’s this?….sniff!….My friend is actually sitting in a chair reading a book without someone nagging her to do something else….snort!….Her mother did call a while ago and said the big bus was running late so she has another couple of hours on that darned thing….wheeze!….But she is doing well only very, very tired because she did not sleep like she was planning to during the night-ride through Nebraska….grunt!….Now back to The Fury Of Rachel Monette!!!!

  16. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:00 am on October 4th, 2012

    Title!…Yee gads!…snort!…I have to think of a title for the next Chet and Bernie adventure….wheeze!….I wonder what Stover came up with?…wuffle!…And what do you win if your title is picked? Do you win a free trip or cash?….chuffle!

    Thank you Staff. Raven would have loved that. I’ve put it on Facebook for him.

    This is from YSAS’s Facebook page . . (I hadn’t heard this one)

    So since I will be dead on tv on CBS’s Elementary. I figured I would share two stories. One tonight and one after the show tomorrow.

    The first day I worked I was in make up most of the day. For all the evidence photos and test wounds
    When they were applying the autopsy scars on my chest I felt the make up lady pull a few hairs. No problem I’m a man I won’t say anything. Later when the day was done she went to remove the scars and found that she actually stitched me, TWICE. Same spot both sides. Ouch. But lol.

    Enjoy the show everyone.

    11:13 am on October 4th, 2012

    We will be watching!

  19. B.Stover
    11:13 am on October 4th, 2012

    Rio: I won’t tell what my suggested title is until after the new title is announced. (It wasn’t “To Bark, Perchance to Bite.”)

  20. B.Stover
    11:15 am on October 4th, 2012

    I think that make-up lady should be more careful.

  21. BearSpiritDog
    11:46 am on October 4th, 2012

    Poor YSAS. Ouch! But it was worth it. You are a Star!
    Melanie: We all will be watching tonight!

    Titles? My mind is blank. It must be due to hunger.

  23. Staff
    12:27 pm on October 4th, 2012

    I sent in a title also.

    Now what channel is Elementary on? I bet Dad doesn’t get it.

    12:29 pm on October 4th, 2012

    12:36 pm on October 4th, 2012

    I am going to “rest my eyes” with a relaxation cd. I hope this will allow me to stay up and watch and use the iPaw at the same time to play with youse guys.

    Books!…My friend and I are organizing her small bookcase in our very small bedroom…sniff!…We found out that we have duplicate copies of Alexander McCall Smith’s The Tears of The Giraffe and Morality For Beautiful Girls…snort!…If any of youse guys want these books my friend said she will mail them to you…sneeze!…First come first served!…heh!

  27. OleyHowlers

    We just set up our DVR to record dead YSAS. Probably can’t stay up that late on a weeknight.

  28. Siber-H
    12:50 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Elementary comes on at 9 here. What times does it come on in the Eastern Time Zone?

  29. OleyHowlers
    12:53 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Mom says DirectTV lists it at 10:00 here on the East Coast.

    Nine and Ten are late for us hard working Sibers. I will make sure to get a good nap this afternoon.

  32. Masquers
    1:06 pm on October 4th, 2012

    We are bringing something most everyone likes…Salmon bon bons.
    And I overheard BSD saying he is bringing steaks…very rare.
    The question is: will he be able to stay awake? Here on the West Coast Elementary is on at 10 o’clock…pretty late for that guy.
    Moi? I wouldn’t miss it for the world! Kat naps are my secret.

  33. B.Stover
    1:10 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Yes, Elementary is on at 10:01 PM EST. (And you can do it Melanie.)

    I’m making rice pudding so it smells like cinnamon here.

  34. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:10 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Nap!…My friend mentioned the “N” word too…heh!….We wouldn’t miss seeing Clarkson tonight for anything….Wooooo!

    1:38 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Dear Staff – thank you so much for that link to “Ode to Joy” It brought (happy) tears to our eyes.

    After the poetry bout, our brains can’t come up with a title. How about “Chet and Bernie in the Big Easy”?

  36. SnowBella
    2:15 pm on October 4th, 2012

    We only get a few channels, and only one of those channels comes in clear. SiberH, I am planning on bringing the canned salmon I received in my recent visit to a village on the Yukon.

  37. Siber-H
    2:26 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Oh Boy! Thanks Rebecca, Two different ways to enjoy salmon tonight. I will bring green chili stew made with this year’s crop of Hatch Green Chili.

  38. B.Stover
    2:32 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Here’s the finished poem (but changes can be made):

  40. Barb & Maggie
    2:38 pm on October 4th, 2012

    I think I saw Hatch green chilis at Fresh Market. I asked if they had tahini paste (used in making hummus) and they had 3 choices!

    I got a big hunk of salmon there last week during their 2-for-1 sale, and cut it into serving pieces. We still have a couple in the freezer, so I could bake them with a little lemon, butter and dill and Maggie can bring them to the party. Three ways to enjoy salmon.

    In the deep bowels of earth, shadows played upon the rocks.
    Lit by luminescent flickerings of myriad tiny forms–
    The sprites aglow, attending to their tasks
    Intently guarded, yet joyful
    Untouched by details beyond their bounds
    Moving to the music of crystalline drops
    Rolling gently from chandeliered pendulums of stone,
    They saw their shapes in dark and light
    Course together in the bowels of the earth.

    In the deep indigo of sky, light sparkled upon the clouds–
    The stars’ luster patterns the approaching dawn,
    Still beauty in the rain and foggy dark,
    Awaiting the arrival of the autumn moon
    The light of gathering harvest’s gold,
    The final dance before winter’s sleep
    When indigo turns to slate.

    Aurora edging toward the promise of rising sun–
    Rising, rising like the phoenix bringing forth a new season.
    Flowers slowly lifting dew-dampened heads
    Unfurling colors, emblazoning the meadow with perfumed pennants.
    Birds and insects greeting each other with song and buzz.
    The sprites now aglow with summer sun
    Dancing to the music of time.

    3:03 pm on October 4th, 2012

    OH WOW! Youse guys are good!

    I have now napped. Zoë’s cake has been picked up (celebrating on Sunday). Patsy is still asleep.

    10:00! Okay, I can do this. This is going to be a rolling party if the 10:00 time continues through the states.

    So NO hints about what is going on from us Easterners, to the midwesterners, to the mountaineers to the coasterers to the Alaskaers.

    Food sounds awesome. We will be bringing lobster.

  43. Barb & Maggie
    3:37 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Melanie, The show is on here at 9:00, so we will be watching it at the same time. The description says “Holmes investigates the murder of a young man who was shot while entering his apartment”. Assuming he is already dead when the show starts. I would think it would be difficult to stay perfectly still and not breath or flutter one’s eyes. Clarkson must be a really good actor!

  44. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:44 pm on October 4th, 2012

    I’m bringing a bottle of Cahors to the party and four butterscotch pies and four chocolate cream pies.

    So, we have Bloody Mary’s and Road Kill and Boot Reer(?) for snackies. I don’t remember anyone actually signing up for hot wings.

    Since we are all watching from our own homes, we may not actually need a potluck, but if each person makes one dish, we can blurrrrrrr them cross country and have lots of variety. The menu is looking pretty skimpy, I must say.

    Happy birthday to Wolfie’s pop! Sixty is twice as nice as thirty, I’m sure of it.

    We are all packed for the Shew this weekend. And since we have a big night of tv watching ahead of us, we are going out for pizza. So we will bring 20 pizzas to the party tonight. Half will be gluten free.

    Bee – thank you for being the Poem Keeper. We really like it.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY WOLFIE’s DAD!!!!!

    5:35 pm on October 4th, 2012

    We are bringing food to tonight’s Dead Guy party, tho we probably can’t stay awake until the end. What are we bringing you ask? Why, Meashka’s week-old DEAD fuzzbutt, and we plan to bring a fresh groundhog possum. And the beer of the day…Rogue’s Dead Guy Ale, of course!

    Happy Birthday, Wolfie’s Dad!

    Contributors to the poem are T&G, Macy, Wolfie, Staff, Howlers, Rio and me. I hope I didn’t forget anyone. I have contributions by lines in my notebook. Fun!

  68. Melanie
    6:56 pm on October 4th, 2012

    YSAS asked if Wolfie could blur by and pick up the 20pounds of the venison jerky he just finished up. He wishes he could be at the party, but he will be texting to a certain someone during the show. She had to fly home to be in a wedding.

    Wings!…Someones making Wings, right?…snort!…And someone is going to pick up me and Beau, right? The Beaus-mobile is still locked up in the pound…grunt!

  70. Melanie
    7:09 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Wölfie, Happy Birthday to your Pa.

    Riö, I had bought the 40 lobsters before I remembered the wings. I’m sorry. I have cleaned out the lobsters and then made them into little tiny cakes.

    So I’m bringing loads of Lobsta Cakes.

  71. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:11 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Lobsta!…Melanie, I’m not sure I like lobsta or mot…sniff!…I’ve never eaten it before…grunt!…Just like moose, I’ve never eaten a moose before either…urp!

  72. B.Stover
    7:21 pm on October 4th, 2012

    I’m watching the show Numbers and they made this statement about baseball: It is the most statistically driven sport in the world. Why is that? (A real question.)

  73. SnowBella
    7:22 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Where is the party? Are we all meeting a Melanie’s or another location. If I remember one of recent parties was held on Admin’s roof.

  74. Beau - The Black Pug
    7:22 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Sneeze!… I have a title too. The Big Sneezy….yup!

  75. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:25 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Location!…I think it should be somewhere out in the Wild Wild West because it will be earlier in time…sniff!…Hey, what about here? Her mother is gone and my friend is busy catching up on all the reading she has been denied over the past year and 5 months…heh!

  76. Barb & Maggie
    7:28 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Moose probably tastes like deer, right? Well aged fuzzbutts taste like chicken. Barb remembers eating it fried when she was a little girl. Lobsta tastes like lobsta, nothing compares.

    Spoiler alert – this is a bit gross. Barb heard this anthropologist on a tv interview once, who had dined with a primative tribe of cannibals. He indulged in the meal and said it tasted like pork!

  77. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:28 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Stats!….Yes, baseball fans love to play the numbers game…heh!heh!….Everything is recorded and studied with intense interest…snort!

    7:29 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Mr.Staff sent me this photo of our yard at the farm this morning. He was then told to go out and gently shake the snow off the forsythia (left) and the french lilac (right). He said they are standing up nicely now.

    7:32 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Since I live in Buffalo, I will be bringing wings. They’re from Duffs, one of the best. They won’t be like the copies that are available elsewhere.

  81. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:38 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Sammie!…Bless you!…snort!snort!…Real wings comin’ my way!…Wooooooo!…Someone here made her kick-@ass spaghetti sauce without any help at all from someone else. She said it was quite enjoyable….wuffle!…We are going to eat!eat!eat! soon!….chuffle!

  82. B.Stover
    7:39 pm on October 4th, 2012

    But why are statistics of interest in baseball…as opposed to basketball or football or, or, or…..

    BSTover,
    That is an interesting question. I don’t know if anyone knows why for sure. It would make a good psychology master’s paper. Maybe because years ago when it all started they kept records And maybe the type of people who like baseball are part history junkies and part sports fans. The stats get really intricate and convoluted. There are many books about baseball stats.

    see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_James

    Remember earlier this year when the Red Sox had the 17 inning game with the Orioles and they both used a regular player as the pitcher when the real pitchers were all used up? Well everyone was all excited because (according to the Washington Post) “That’s when Davis wrote his own chapter in history, becoming the first player to go 0-for-8 from the plate and earn a win in 107 years.”

    Stats. They love them.

    7:54 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Sports!….I think all sports enjoy statistics because it is a way to track how well a player is doing. Most fans of any sport likes see their favorite player’s stats. …snort!… Maybe baseball has more things they keep track of then other sports. I don’t know. I do know it is a big part of baseball player’s salaries, but this is true of all the other sports too….heh!

    NO PIE FOR YOU!

  88. Siber-H
    7:57 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Stover, This is only a guess, but it could be because baseball is so much more complicated than the other sports, and it an older sport. Also, the history of baseball is sacred, but that is not true of the other sports.

    The SNOW!! I am so jealous! That is a decent amount of snow for this time of year.

  89. OleyHowlers

    But time to bring out the Lederhosen for Oktoberfest. Heh.

    8:16 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Fellow Sibers!

    That is it! That is where we will have the party. Who wants to be the first to tell Mr. Staff?

  93. Staff
    8:18 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Me me me. I will email him to get ready right now! I haven’t seen Abbie and Alice for a whole week!

    Sasha’s house-calling vet was here. She drew blood, and cleaned up a sore. Sasha was mortified. We are getting a prescription filled for pain meds. We will not do anything else until we get the results of the tests.

    Meashka wanted to grab that vet by the pant-leg for hurting her little big sis.

    Baseball is “sacred”? (_______–what am I thinking?)

    Thanks for all of the stats info guys. No pie for me.

  98. Masquers
    8:24 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Baseball is America’s pastime and the most attended sporting event. More kids grow up playing baseball than any other sport.
    I, for one, am looking forward to a big slice of B’s chocolate cream pie.

    New title? My brain is already spinning out of control, and thick smoke is coming out my ears. We’ll be in touch.

    Got back to Long Island this evening after a full week in Phoenix.
    Have started a memorial web page for dad, which is ironic in a sense – I could never get him to go near a computer.

  100. Mollypop's Mom
    8:49 pm on October 4th, 2012

    OHowlers – Does your fake possum look anything like this?

  101. Melanie
    8:50 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Terry, let us know where the page is that you are doing for your father.

    I think I might some virtual coffee to help stay awake.

  102. BearSpiritDog
    8:57 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Terry: I’ll bet I know one little guy who was happy to see you.

    Melanie: Won’t you join us in a cup of hot chocolate?

  103. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:59 pm on October 4th, 2012

    MollysMom!…That guy is just playing possum…snort!

  104. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:00 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Melanie!…Its 7:00 here so doesn’t the show start any minute for youse gusy on the east coast?…grunt!…You can do it! Its your beloved Son (playing dead)…sniff!

  105. Terry Ballard
    9:04 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Melanie – sure thing. It’s at http://terryballard.org/shb/shbrip.html

    Bear – Donna said that every night he’d be at the head of the stairs watching the door. When I walked in the door at 5, he went absolutely crackerdogs. Nothin like a dog.

    Don’t remember if I told youse this, but Rescue Ink started putting some of my cat closeups on their Facebook pages, and had a gazillion shares. Tomorrow I get to see if any of this led to an adoption.

    Good night Chet

    9:08 pm on October 4th, 2012

    SiberH: I just popped the top onto salmon.

  107. B.Stover
    9:09 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Rio: It’s just after 9 here. Elementary starts at 10:01.

  108. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:10 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Rebecca!…Whaaat???…sniff!

  109. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:12 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Mountain-time!…It starts at 9:00pm here. I guess SiberH already told youse guys that. I wonder why it starts later on the eastern half of the country…sniff!…Makes no sense to me. I’m just glad I will get to see it again on ONDEMAND…heh!

  110. Melanie
    9:12 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Thanks Terry. I will check it out tomorrow.

    Salmon have pot tops?

  111. Tupper and Gilly
    9:21 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Ummm – we may be a few minutes late to the party. We are still waiting for the pizzas. We went to pick them up and right away noticed there wasn’t any Salmon, Possum or Dead Mouse pizza. The guy thought we were kidding.
    So, now they are making the right pizzas. And the good news is they are going to give us the salami, pepperoni and shredded mozzarella ones anyway.
    There’s enough pizza for everyone to have seconds, thirds, fourths etc.

  112. Staff
    9:29 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Maggie has agreed to go to bed 15 minutes early so I can get down for the start of the show. The dead guys are always in the first part. Mr.Staff told me that.
    And I will have time to blur over to the farm and nag Mr.Staff about not dusting or vacuuming or any of that stuff.

    Whoo Hooo

  113. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:37 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Staff!…Very good point! Important to be watching right from the very start because the dead guy usually does appear first…heh!heh!…Then we can spend the whole party trying to figure out who killed Clarkson…wheeze!…I wonder if he even knows?….hmmmm.

  114. BearSpiritDog
    9:42 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Three hours, eighteen minutes to go until shew time.

  115. Barb & Maggie
    9:43 pm on October 4th, 2012

    MPM, That is NOT an Opossum. Looks like a groundhog or woodchuck to us.

  116. SnowBella
    9:54 pm on October 4th, 2012

    As I gift, I was given a jar of salmon caught from the Yukon River. The jar top pops when you open it for the first time. I promised SiberH I would share.

    Staff: Does Mr. Staff know about the party yet? Someone keeps looking from behind the curtains to the back yard and shaking his head.

  117. Siber-H
    9:54 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Bear has the longest wait of all of us.

    I am having some of Rebecca’s Salmon now…Alaska Salmon!

  118. Siber-H
    9:56 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Will the Dead Body be on display throught the program or just at the beginning?

  119. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:57 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Pizza!…sniff!…What kinds are these again?…snort!…Hey, look. Thank dawg there is pepperoni….heh!

  120. Melanie
    9:57 pm on October 4th, 2012

    I am too nervous to eat!

  121. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:58 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Spit!…SiberH! What a question just as I was eating a piece of pizza…gah!

  122. Melanie
    9:58 pm on October 4th, 2012

    YSAS just called. He was making sure I was awake.

  123. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:59 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Melanie!….Momanager, you probably got Clarkson this gig, didn’t you?…heh!heh!…Enjoy it! Don’t be nervous! He will be awesome!…chuffle!

  124. Tupper and Gilly
    10:00 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Here we go!
    Yay YSAS!!!

  125. Melanie
    10:00 pm on October 4th, 2012

    One of his roommates said it was going to be weird to see him dead and yet be with him alive.

  126. SnowBella
    10:01 pm on October 4th, 2012

    The snow in Mr. Staff’s yard is great. Every time Rio tries to make a snow angel, it shows up with horns and a spiked tail.

  127. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:02 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Interest!… I have to watch an hour of A Person Of Interest before we get to see Clarkson playing dead…sniff!…Never seen this show before…huffle!

  128. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:02 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Rebecca!…Heh!snort!…You must mean Beau, not myself…sniff!

  129. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:03 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Wellll!…Have you seen him? Have you seen him?…snort!

  130. Melanie
    10:04 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Yes, Rio, I did get him this gig. Look!,

  131. Princess Sam
    10:05 pm on October 4th, 2012

    I saw him!

  132. SnowBella
    10:05 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Rio: Somehow, and I’m not sure how, Beau made his way inside the house and is now peeking outside and shaking his head along with Mr. Staff.

  133. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:07 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Wuffle!…SiberH and I have to wait for 52 minutes yet…sniff!…Somehow we can party with youse guys, but we cannot view the show at the same time…heh!…Wierd but true.

  134. B.Stover
    10:08 pm on October 4th, 2012

    I saw him!

  135. Melanie
    10:09 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Zoe came down when they first showed him. He sure looks dead.
    Sniff, I am so proud!

  136. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    10:09 pm on October 4th, 2012

    What a great dead guy. We saw him too. And please pass the salmon. Wookie

  137. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:09 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Beau!…He hates snow even worse than I do….heh!…He also hates Kats, so I hope AbbieTheFat and Alice are hiding…heh!heh!…Although, Alice could hypnotise Beau pretty easily…sniff!

  138. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:11 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Waiting!…This waiting for the Dead-Guy is killing me…huffle!

  139. B.Stover
    10:11 pm on October 4th, 2012

    He’s on the first six minutes and his name is Casey.

  140. Melanie
    10:12 pm on October 4th, 2012

    He has a name!

  141. Beau - The Black Pug
    10:12 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Sneeze!…All this snow. Not my bag….sniff!…I smell Kats.

  142. Melanie
    10:13 pm on October 4th, 2012

    He will also be at the morgue.

  143. Tupper and Gilly
    10:13 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Mr DeMille – YSAS is ready for his close up.
    What a great dead guy!

  144. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:14 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Six!…Minutes! Holy Crap!…snort!…This is way bigger and better than most dead guys get…wheeze!

  145. Staff
    10:15 pm on October 4th, 2012

    I saw the dead guy. Don’t miss the beginning.

    Mr.Staff has always been a little wary of the bloggers. I guess he didn’t believe me when I told him about the husky’s playing in the snow. snicker.

    If anyone is too cold just come right in the house.

  146. Siber-H
    10:15 pm on October 4th, 2012

    What a wonderful location for a party!

    Does YSAS know that all of us are watching?

  147. B.Stover
    10:15 pm on October 4th, 2012

    There’s a picture of him on Sherlock’s computer.

  148. Melanie
    10:16 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Okay, I can eat something. Where is that pie? His morgue pics were just on.

  149. Melanie
    10:17 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Yes. He knows. He loves his fans.

  150. SnowBella
    10:18 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Somebody, not me, should toast our YSAS and his momager!

  151. Melanie
    10:20 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Patsy is mad at me because we haven’t gone to bed.

  152. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:21 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Wow!…Wow!…Wow!…I’m so excited and I haven’t even seen him yet…snort!snort!….Melanie, how does he feel about his “performance”? (ask him when you talk to him next)…heh!

  153. SnowBella
    10:21 pm on October 4th, 2012

    If I’m not mistaken, Natasha and B just pulled up in a sports car with the top down.

  154. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    10:22 pm on October 4th, 2012

    I forget how to make Bloody Mary’s. I know it has tomater juice and celery, but what is the other liquid? Dr Pepper? Mountain Dew? Or possibly milk?

    Pondering…….

  155. Melanie
    10:23 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Who gave Grace the ale? She’s chancing her tail. Whoops, she got and is now walking sideways.

  156. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:26 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Rebecca!…Yea, but was the roof down on the car?…heh!

  157. Melanie
    10:26 pm on October 4th, 2012

    I will be talking to him after the show.

  158. SnowBella
    10:26 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Melanie: I think that was my fault. I was trying to keep it out of Belle’s reach. I forgot to account for the height difference between newf and not newf.

  159. Melanie
    10:27 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Well, that was a shocker!

  160. SnowBella
    10:27 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Rio: one word—no!

  161. Staff
    10:28 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Oh he gets to be in the morgue too? Wow they must have really liked him.

    He was perfectly dead.

    Hey! Look at all the pies! Yum yum yum. Abbie is in the bon bons

  162. Siber-H
    10:29 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Rebecca? What kind of sports car are they driving?

  163. SnowBella
    10:30 pm on October 4th, 2012

    SiberH: Fast.

  164. Siber-H
    10:32 pm on October 4th, 2012

    hmmm Maybe I had better find Natasha and talk to her.

  165. Barb & Maggie
    10:32 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Casey McGinnis. They got the Irish part right. We could totally tell it was him.

  166. Tupper and Gilly
    10:34 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Here’s to the best dead guy-AND live guy we know. Thank Dog he has a GREAT Mom who raised him well, with love and without selling him to a traveling circus when he was little!

  167. Melanie
    10:36 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Well, now I don’t know if he will be in the morgue since they already used them.

  168. Melanie
    10:38 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Many times the circus looked good.

  169. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:38 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Tupper!…heh!snort!heh!…I bet all great actors were a pain in the @ss as children…snorkel!

  170. BearSpiritDog
    10:39 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Six minutes on screen in the opening scenes and later at the morgue too. Wow! Excellent momanagerial work, Melanie.
    Gah! That hot chocolate is putting me to sleep. It was supposed to have the opposite effect. Wait…aren’t you supposed to drink hot milk when you want to sleep?
    I will stay awake. I will. I will!!!
    Two and a half hours and counting.
    Hmm…maybe if I have a snack…..some of Siber-H’s green chili stew perhaps. And a root beer float and a large slice of pie.

  171. Melanie
    10:42 pm on October 4th, 2012

    It’s been a long time since I’ve had to sit through so many commercials.

  172. Masquers
    10:45 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Did anyone bring a flashlight? We are here on the Darkside or is it the Darkest Side? Riö?
    Commercials! So irritating.

  173. Masquers
    10:48 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Look who stuffed himself and fell asleep in the corner.

  174. SnowBella
    10:50 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Masquers: I have a flashlight and extra batteries. I also brought my mushing headlamp. It’s so bright, we might be able to land planes if it comes to it.

    To the circus!!!!

  175. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:52 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Bear!…Oh no!…heh!…Somehow we expected that…sniff!…Less than 10 minutes before SiberH and I see Clarkson!!!

  176. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:55 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Maskers!…We ran across the “official” Darkside names today when we were sorting through books…sniff!…Its downstairs and we are not leaving our seats right now to go get it…heh!…I will post it again later…heh!

  177. Melanie
    10:56 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Way cool. Now I’m waiting to see if he got credit.

  178. SnowBella
    10:58 pm on October 4th, 2012

    I ran out of the fixings for root beer floats, but can make boot reer floats if any one is interested.

  179. SnowBella
    10:59 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Melanie: please tell YSAS we here at the kennel are so very proud of him!

  180. Melanie
    11:01 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Nope. Not on the tv. I will have to see if he is on the credit on IMDb tomorrow. Be back in a minute. Going to call you know who.

  181. Staff
    11:03 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Rio it is worth it. He is dead for a long time. He gets stared at forever. He is amazing.

    Gotta go to bed. So tired.

    Hope you all have fun at the farm. Enjoy yourselves.

  182. Melanie
    11:08 pm on October 4th, 2012

    I asked him if he thought “he done good”. He said he looked good and dead.
    He said thank you for the support and there’s another story on his Facebook page. I am going to sleep. Have fun you guys on the next watch.
    Send the Pack home if they get to rowdy.
    TTFN

  183. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:09 pm on October 4th, 2012

    CLARKSON!…WoooooHoooo!…I saw him then I saw him again and again….snort!snort!…Close-ups too!…wheeze!….He was perfectly dead. I hope to see him again and again at the morgue and on the computer…gasp!…I’m overly excited right now and that pepperoni pizza is giving me pug-burn…sniffle!…Commercials SUCK!..heh!…Clarkson is the best!

  184. Masquers
    11:17 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Looking forward to seeing that list.
    Riö! It’s only 8:00 here. You and Siber are one hour ahead of me. How cum it’s on at nine there? You’ll be off to bed early. Damit!

    Melanie: It’s hard to see the credits after the show. They run them by so fast.

  185. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:21 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Watching!….Still watching here…snort!…Waiting for the morgue scene…heh!heh!…Dead Guy Party is rockin’!….Woooooo!

  186. SnowBella
    11:26 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Umm…Melanie, the pack passed rowdy about an hour ago. This party is starting to gear up. Mr. Staff looks a little upset about having nine Newfs on his roof, but what are you going to do?

  187. Masquers
    11:27 pm on October 4th, 2012

    We are watching Last Resort on the other TV in the bedroom. This one doesn’t have ABC on it. I’ll be back here when it’s over.
    Grabbing a couple of bon bons first before Abbie and Alice clean them out.
    BB in half an hour.

  188. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:30 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Casey!…McMannis!…snorkel!…The mystery becomes even deeper as another body is found…wheeze!…Gimmeeee more food and drink! Where is Beau at anyways? Not on the roof I hope…sniff!…He hates heights.

  189. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:43 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Bon-Bons….snort!…Where is everyone? Even SiberH is no where to be seen, or smelt…sniff!…I hope he didn’t fall asleep yet…heh!…This is a really good mystery so far…heh!…Clarkson! Woooooooooo!

  190. SnowBella
    11:43 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Rio: I have some hotwings, courtesy of our resident princess, with your name on them.

  191. Macy the Min-pin
    11:47 pm on October 4th, 2012

    I did not see the morgue scene. When was it? I liked him when he was alive with the girls in the picture. Wooooohoooo. Two degrees of separation.

  192. SnowBella
    11:47 pm on October 4th, 2012

    Rio: It looks like Beau is on top of Franklin and doing fine. I don’t have the heart to tell him tha Franklin is on the roof.

  193. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:01 am on October 5th, 2012

    Morgue!…We somehow missed the morgue scene too…grump!…What the hell….sniff!…Anyways, it was a great episode and Clarkson was terrific!…heh!…All you west coast and Alaskan guys have a lot to look forward to, sans commercials…wheeze!

  194. Siber-H
    12:02 am on October 5th, 2012

    I made it! I am still awake! I saw him!

    This dead body role will lead to even bigger and better roles for Clarkson.

    Mr. Staff, Thank you for a lovely party in the snow. The food was, as always, the best.

    I have pigged out and I’m sleepy now.

    Night All

  195. Masquers
    12:05 am on October 5th, 2012

    Riö: Did you watch Person of Interest? I’ve never seen it before. It’s on now.
    One more hour.

  196. Masquers
    12:06 am on October 5th, 2012

    Night Siber.

  197. Masquers
    12:08 am on October 5th, 2012

    I thought I just saw Agent Patsy in disguise.

  198. Masquers
    12:33 am on October 5th, 2012

    Still here. Tell me it’s Friday night.

  199. Macy the Min-Pin
    12:22 am on October 6th, 2012

    Masques, it s Friday morning almost as good.

    I love the CHET AND BERNIE mystery books. I got the first book, DOG ON IT, only a few weeks ago from my aunt & uncle for my 37th birthday & have since read the first book as well as the 2nd, 3rd, & 4th books on my NOOK. I just started reading the 5th book on my NOOK yesterday. I think that the title for the 6th book should be something like BARKING MAD IN THE BIG EASY or maybe NUTCASES IN NEW ORLEANS.

    I love the CHET AND BERNIE mystery books. I got the first book, DOG ON IT, only a few months ago from my aunt & uncle for my 37th birthday & have since read the first book as well as the 2nd, 3rd, & 4th books on my NOOK. I just started reading the 5th book on my NOOK yesterday. I think that the title for the 6th book should be something like BARKING MAD IN THE BIG EASY or maybe NUTCASES IN NEW ORLEANS.
