Tour Talk (Cont’d)

“You’ll be in Denver on Thursday for The Sound and the Furry?” Admin says.

“Tattered Cover,” says Spence. “The Highland Ranch location. I’m really looking forward to it. The Tattered Cover is one of the best-known and most important indie bookstores in the country.”

“I understand there’ll be a pop quiz at every stop, with Chet and Bernie stress balls for prizes?”

“Especially if you can get me that list of questions.”

“Don’t rush me,” says Admin. “How about this one: What was the only case Chet and Bernie failed to solve?

TATTERED COVER BOOKSTORE Highland Ranch Location 9315 Dorchester Street Highlands Ranch, CO 80129 – Thursday, 7:30 PM.

    I have never ordered a paw-printed copy from any of the bookstores that Spencer visited, because I was so sure that one day I’d get to meet him in person. Now, I am thinking maybe I will order TFATF from one of the bookstores on this here tour.
    AJ, Thanks for posting the photo of The Little Detective Agency, Alaska Division, in action. It reminded me of something I forgot to tell you. When I was at that special doc, he began to examine me, and then looked up at the ‘rents in surprise. He asked “Is he an athlete?” heh heh heh! AJ, put me on your team! I am an Athlete!!!!

    Hmmm, I do remember the reference, but not the incident. Must ponder when I am more awake . .

    Good Morning All!

    Dima! Good to hear from you . .

    You guys can read AJ’s message from last night. Very nice.

    I thought we needed another look at that Detective Agency is action . .

    Have a good trip Spence.

    Amazon sent an email that the novel has shipped and I should receive it tomorrow. I ordered a copy for my Kindle. I’ll probably receive that one first.

    Thank you for the photo AJ.

    Good morning all.

    Rio! I miss you. Please don’t sob. You’ll make me sob too.

    Grizz and I held the pups of the Detective Agency when we were in Alaska. Look at ’em now!!!

    Gooood morning, everyone! Tomorrow is the BIG day. Mom doesn’t know if she wants to read TSATF before going to Hotlanta. We liked the foto of the “babies”…3/4 of the Little Detective Agency, AK. Only Little missing and Chet and Bernie look like 2 peas in a pod 🙂 Glad the pack has reassembled, hope LouLou and LuLu have a nice day. Rio, enjoy the farm. Beau, enjoy Bumstuff, IA. OFA, get packin’.

    Have a masterful Monday!

    I am at the brink of my endurance with Loulou. I “Rowf” at her every chance I get.

  14. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    9:59 am on September 9th, 2013

    I wonder if Spence was referring to the Astrid case……

  15. Kat
    10:01 am on September 9th, 2013

    Poor Princess. Why don’t your 2-leggeds understand that there can only be one pampered Prima Donna per family?

  16. Barb & Maggie
    10:02 am on September 9th, 2013

    That is quite a princess bed!

    We think the case they didn’t solve was the broom closet case involving a missing child. Later Bernie took matters in his own hands and settled the score. Good for Bernie.

    Rio, have fun with ole Pepper.

    Hot and humid here today, much like Iowa.

  17. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    10:07 am on September 9th, 2013

    No, I’m certain it was the Astrid case. It was definitely unsolved.

  18. Barb & Maggie
    10:08 am on September 9th, 2013

    You have a good point there, Wolfie.

  19. Tupper and Gilly
    10:14 am on September 9th, 2013

    Morning all. It’s a manic Monday here with the last bit of packing and vacation prep. Mama has to go give blood to a lab, for whatever reason. We could understand if it was a bloodhound…..

    Oh- and tomorrow – we are going to the BEACH. To eat LOBSTERS. Without the Wrotten Kats!

  20. Siber-H
    10:39 am on September 9th, 2013

    Spence, Wishing you a successful and fun book tour.

    A.J. Thanks for the photo and the report. I see a bright future for the Little Detective Agency pups.

    Princess Sam and Loulou…I knew this was going to be interesting.

    Good Morning All

  21. Masquers
    10:54 am on September 9th, 2013

    Hmm…unsolved case…I haven’t a clue. Is there a cheat sheet?
    I must have a stress ball!
    Riö! Spence is there and you are not. Sob!sob!sob!
    It’s a masterful Monday for some, a manic Monday for others…try to keep it together, folks.

  22. Macy the min-pin
    11:01 am on September 9th, 2013

    I was looking at a regional speech difference chart. What do you call those tiny lobster like critters in your area?

  23. Barb & Maggie
    11:06 am on September 9th, 2013

    Macy, we call them crawdads. Some people call them crayfish.

  24. Rose
    11:10 am on September 9th, 2013

    Macy, they are also known as langoustines.

  25. B. Stover
    11:12 am on September 9th, 2013

    Barb is correct. The case is mentioned in Dog Who Knew Too Much and Fistful of Collars. (The Astrid case was never finished let alone solved.)

  26. Siber-H
    11:17 am on September 9th, 2013

    Macy, We don’t have any of those little critters here.

  27. Herd of Hounds
    11:21 am on September 9th, 2013

    Aren’t they sometimes called langostinos too?

  28. Melanie
    11:33 am on September 9th, 2013

    Staff, please check SDD.

    Hmmm, still haven’t had time to even ponder a bit. Manic Masterful Monday here.

    First it was a laid back Monday until Zoë realized the Pack’s collars were missing. They go neck nekked in the house because their collars can rub wrong on some of them. Zoë was searching high and low. I finally finished my coco and breakfast. I thought about the last time they had them on . . Friday and Zoë was tired when they came in from the walk / run. I wandered about a bit. Light Bulb went off (the old fashion kind, not the new twirly ones). The Pack had their “don’t shoot me, I’m not a bear” orange vests on. Sure enough the collars were with the vests.

    After that? I have been having a Masterful Monday and GETTING THINGS DONE.

    Woo Hoo!

  29. Barb & Maggie
    11:36 am on September 9th, 2013

    We have never heard those two lang names before.

    Yea! We win the prize. What is our prize? Do we get a stress ball? I want to sink my teeth into one of those things!

    We love the picture of the two Detective Agency guys. My how they have grown!

  30. Melanie
    11:37 am on September 9th, 2013

    Oh, about lobsters.

    When I lived above Boston, the guys were in grade school, and they did a lot of reporting on the area there.

    When Salem was first settled (we lived in the area that all the drunks, pirates and Native American’s were put, now a different town) the lobsters were SIX FEET LONG.

    Laws were passed that jails could only feed the prisoners lobsters 3 x a week.

    Be careful T&G!

  31. Rose
    11:39 am on September 9th, 2013

    HOH: Si. A veces se llaman langostinos.

  32. Herd of Hounds
    11:43 am on September 9th, 2013

    Rose: Creamos que si. A veces pensamos que somos brillantes!

  33. Herd of Hounds
    11:53 am on September 9th, 2013

    And for all ya’ll rest of ya…Rose and we be brilliant! (Wowser, mixed metaphors and linguistics!)

  34. Dima
    12:01 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Think we call them crawfish, but I have never had any

    I can’t believe youse all are not super-impressed with my athleticism. 🙂

  35. Howlers
    12:06 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Here is a photo of Karen Ramstead’s Sibe team. They are all members of our Tribe! Isn’t this a cool photo?

  36. Melanie
    12:14 pm on September 9th, 2013

    When OTAS was young we got crawfish and cooked them up. He took them as toys until they got a bit smelly.

    Howers, that is a beautiful photograph.
    Dima, you are wonderful.

    This is for B.Stover . .

  37. BearSpiritDog
    12:18 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Love that Photo of Karen’s Sibe Team! Did we hear right…she will NOT be running in the 2014 Iditarod?
    Dima the Athlete?

  38. Dima the Athlete
    12:47 pm on September 9th, 2013

    BSD, Karen told me she is doing the Iditarod 2014. She wanted me me me on her team, but I had to turn her down, for two reasons. First, my <3 belongs to Snowhook and I'm awaiting a call from The Giant, and Second, she is going to be using Purple Ganglines! Imagine, Studly Me in purple! Gah!

  39. Siber-H
    12:48 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Dima, I am super impressed with your athletic abilities. Us Siber guys have to stick together.

    Love the pretty photo of Karen’s team. It is cute the way the two dogs are looking back at the camera.

    Bear, Karen didn’t run the Iditarod last year and I don’t think she will this year. I will double check for you.
    As you guys now know, it costs a fortune to run the Iditarod plus a year of HARD work.

  40. Siber-H
    12:53 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Dima is correct! Karen has signed up for the Iditarod 2014. Mike Ellis has not. I hope he does the Yukon Quest.

  41. Luna
    12:55 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Dima: I’ve never doubted your athleticism. Thank you for your loyalty and waiting at the ready to be on the team.

    My mama left me in charge as usual. AJ is the runner up in the event I’m unable to fulfill my in-charge duties. In regards to LouLou, Princess Sam’s nemesis, I’ve told the thieves two things: 1) she is not a squeaky toy so don’t try it. One must be gentle with one so small, and 2) they are not to corrupt her

    My Mama is waiting for the last leg of her flight to begin. She may be incommunicado while she is at the top of the world. Head bumps to all youse.

  42. Siber-H
    12:56 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Mike Ellis has signed up for the Yukon Quest!!! WOO WOO

  43. Barb & Maggie
    12:56 pm on September 9th, 2013

    When Barb was a kid, she and her BF Tina caught some crawdads in a drainage ditch which was no doubt very dirty. They took them to Tina’s house and cooked them like lobsters. Then they dipped the tails in catsup and ate them. Barb says she still gags when she thinks about it.

    Dima, Did the vet ask if you were an athlete because you are so physically fit?

    Melanie 6-foot long lobsters?

  44. Dima the Athlete
    1:02 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Maggie, Pop thinks he assumed I am an athlete because of my nice low blood pressure. Mom is sure it is due to the muscles I built up on all those hikes in The Smoky Mountains.
    They were laughing too much to ask, because they once had a friend, who was a jerk and a braggert. But he was also asked at the doc’s if he was an athlete. We never heard the end of that.

  45. Staff
    1:09 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Melanie I just got a message from Clarkson and I replied to him. Do you want me to reply to you instead? Or check his SDD. ;-D

  46. Princess Sam
    1:14 pm on September 9th, 2013

    MagPie, Loulou is in my bed and those are my toys. Mommy calls them hand-me-downs since I haven’t used them in over two years. I call them MINE!

  47. Tupper and Gilly
    1:30 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Sammie – we sympathize. After all, we have to share attention with those two Wrotten Kats. Maybe we should tell Lefty and Pancho that they ARE squeaky toys, and have at ’em.

    Melanie – good for you! Could you now engage your brain and tell us where we put our swim bags with our swim shoes in them?

    Dima – of course they asked if you were an athlete. Why do you seem surprised? Any Sibers who can patrol your whole property, rid it of the dreaded woodchuck and skunk menace, and keep those girls in line – well, that spells athlete to us.

    Mama says if she finds a 6′ lobster, she is leaving the beach. FAST! Who knows – it might be coming after her and the Storyteller for revenge.

    Love the pics of the Detective team members and of Karen’s sibes.

    When we lived in Southern Indiana we had crawdads as well as the blue tailed skinks. The crawdads would build sand colored towers of mud in the yard and lurk at the bottom of them. If you pulled up a long piece of grassy weed you could stick it down in there and they would bite it and hang on and you could pull them out.
    As far as I remember we didn’t do anything with them once they were out. Unless my brother Chris used them as bait. That is a possibility.

  51. Masquers
    1:49 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Melanie: We found your link very interesting. I know Prof B did too.
    B&M: Yes, the photo yesterday of Judy was incredible. She certainly does not look to be 70 years old…more like late fifties, early sixties.

  52. Rose
    1:51 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Luna, since you are in charge, would you me me over so I can play with my VBFF? I have a picture of the two of you on my screensaver at work.

    It is good to know Mike Ellis has signed up for the Yukon Quest.

    Mom just knows that when Judy and Jake named the puppy they were thinking…”thought the clock says seven thirty, it’s really after 10, looks like Lulu’s been repairing it again! Though you’re wild as any Lulu and you’re just as hard to tame, little Lulu, i love you-lu just the same.”

    Melanie: Thank you for that link. The interview was fascinating. I’d love to hear an entire play with the original pronunciation. And I’d love to see the Globe Theater–how beautiful…and big!

    By the way, purple has always been considered the color of royalty.

    Finally, to give you a sense of how big Li’l Teddy has grown (it must have been all the hot wings and beer at AC), here is a picture of him with his dad. Teddy now weighs in at 31 pounds.

    Sammie, I sympathize with you, girlfriend! One of my brothers, Tig, is trying to unseat me as CCIC! Well, let me tell you, the fur has been flying, much hissing, yowling, fighting! NO, I tell you, NO! I will NOT go lightly into the night. I will fight and fight some more. It matters not to me if it is 2 or 3 in the morning. Mom and Dad will just have to understand. A girl has to do what a girl has to do. Sammie, you must be strong and make sure that little girl shows you the proper respect. LouLou, indeed! Sleeping in your bed and playing with your toys.
    Fight on!!!!! I hope that MPM is treating you to your soft boiled egg and chapstick.

    3:19 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Teddy has grown so much! He is still incredibly cute, and his dad is handsome too. Great picutes.

    Sammy, Is the bed a hand-me-down too, or just the toys? Are you still using the bed, or is that little upstart using it now?

    Kelly just called and Judy called her to tell her little 34 lb. LuLu jumped up on the counter and ate the entire left over pizza they had brought home yesterday. There was about 3/4 of a large pizza in the box. If I did that, and I’m an 80 pounder, I would have the poops today!

    HOH, We saw that pool picture on facebookie, and we just knew it had to have come from you! Great photo!

  74. Howlers
    4:13 pm on September 9th, 2013

    How did little LuLu get a counter-surfing class already? Was there a Siber school?

  75. Melanie
    4:15 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Those who won The Newf Pack items? They have been shipped! Woo Yoo! I got it done the first day possible!

    Teddy Ruff Rider, thirty one pounds? You sure you don’t have some Newf in there somewhere?

    LuLu is a counter surfer! Awesome. As others have replied this is not unusual for those dogs who have had worms for a while. We had to take back on of our pups at 2 years old. The person had too many family, business and health issues to take care of her properly. Lots of loving, but she had tape worms.

    She never got over wanting to eat and eat and eat and eat . .

    I know there were other things I was going to say, but I’m going to rest now.

  76. Trigger
    4:32 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Howlers: Just like Chet and Bernie of the Little Detective litter are proving to be Iditarod naturals, it seems LuLu has taken to counter-surfing with gusto as well. She is a canine prodigy.

  77. Barb & Maggie
    4:35 pm on September 9th, 2013

    LuLu is built for jumping. When she was here yesterday she jumped up on our patio table. They should take her to an agility class, because she is fast!

    Does anyone know anyone who has done the blood test to check a dog’s genetic background? We have heard that it is around $125. Is it fairly accurate? Jim and Judy have a few $$, so they can afford it. We think LuLu has either some Boxer or Bull Terrier background, but are curious to see if we are right.

    Barb, I don’t know personally much about the genetic blood test for dogs, but I have read that many people are surprised when the see the test results. Mom says she would check with the vet to learn which companies that do the test are the most reliable.

    Royals! A package arrived today for me, me, me! Truth be told, only one item was for moi (a delicious surprise) the other 2 items were for my mom. Bear is oooing and aaahing over them, saying the auction photos did not do them justice.
    BSD & I have worked together to get Mom the purrfect birthday gift.
    Thank you, thank you, Golinka, for your beautiful craftsmanship and also for my delicious treat. ^..^

    Barb, If Jim and Judy have those $$$, get them interested in Snowhook!

    Rio, we are caught up on Burn Notice, with only one more episode to go. It is INTENSE!

    Oh, We almost forgot. Here is something to jazz up your evening:

    6:43 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Riö: No more feeling sorry for your pug self I see. But poor Beau must be suffering.
    Breaking Bad? no worries…there will be no spoilers coming from here…we haven’t watched it either.
    Are you into Low Winter Sun as well?

  92. Howlers

    OMD! OMD! OMD!
    Mom just came in with the mail, and guess what? She got the MOST BEEEEAUTIFUL necklaces from T&G’s mama. Holy mackeral Annie, they are gorgeous. Way better than they looked on the web even.

    I agree, B. Stover. Excellent actor.

    We have a space heater going. Unbelievable. Tomorrow it’s supposed to be near 80 degrees.

    Tomorrow is acupuncture day. i am in the morning, and Zoë’s appointment is in the afternoon.

    Time to clean the kitchen. Tonight was crab rolls. Much like lobster rolls, but different.

    Wolfie: The Howler’s video reminded us of that Great Book you loaned us a long whilest ago.

  97. Tupper and Gilly
    8:11 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Masquers and Howlers – whew – glad the necklaces are there, and that your Moms like them. It is hard to photograph necklaces without all the fancy-schmancy lighting and studio props. We are just glad your Moms took a chance on them. (and you are welcome for the treats. Some of them were stolen from the private stash of certain Wrotten Kats, but they’ll never know)

    The dancing dogs video – yeah, so what. We can dance perfectly with Mama whenever she wants. She just picks us up and boogies, and we are with her every single step. tee hee

  98. Howlers
    8:15 pm on September 9th, 2013

    T&G, Mom is still twirling. And also, she gave us something yummy that is supposed to be for checkups?

  99. Melanie
    8:28 pm on September 9th, 2013

    I think those dogs are made for dancing!

    Those are to make your pearly whites sparkle as bright as your eyes. We love ’em.

    Gramp took Mama and the Storyteller out for dinner since they are about to leave for the BEACH. But did they take us? No, they did not. So we got our revenge by getting into the trash, strewing it all about the house, and then yurping it up in Gramp’s den.

    Mama was just SOOOOO happy to come home after a long day, and a nice dinner to find our “artwork”.

  101. Tupper and Gilly
    8:32 pm on September 9th, 2013

    We are going to say good night now – early bedtime so we can leave early tomorrow. Did we mention that we are going WITH Mama and the Storyteller to the BEACH? To eat LOBSTERS!

    Woo hooo!

    We will talk to you all from Oceanside.


  102. BearSpiritDog
    8:41 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Tupper&Gilly: Artwork. Is that something youse ought to be doing when tomorrow is BEACH DAY? Your Mama could change her mind you know and leave you home with them Wrotten Kats.

    We just finished dinner, and we wanted to ask The Royals where they get these treats. We love them.

    Well, if you read this, T&G, HAVE A GREAT TIME AT THE BEACH…with LOBSTERS!

    OMD! We just watched Aatu. We love that video! And talking about athletes…how about the way that girl could actually get her leg up and over that Newf! Thanks, Melanie. We needed that.

    On that note, we must say good night. Pop has been working all night, and Mom is the one on call, so she must get sleep while she can. Did we remember to say welcome to I/T to Rio’s friend?

  110. Barb & Maggie
    9:16 pm on September 9th, 2013

    T & G, Have a great time and eat some LOBSTERS for us. We love Lobsters. Just not the 6 foot long ones! We also got our package in the mail with the finger puppets. They are adorable. Who knitted them?

    Rio, Enjoy your steak and your time with Pepper. Hope Beau survives the heat.

    We are saying good night too.

  111. BearSpiritDog

  112. Barb & Maggie
    9:28 pm on September 9th, 2013

    One more thing – Rio, did you know that Beau is in the bread basket of the United States?

    Also, tomorrow is the day that New Yorkers vote for their new mayor. Mr. Weiner has about 7% of the vote, but he thinks he is going to win. His wife has been absent from the recent campaign. hahahahaha

    Sweet dreams everyone.

  113. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:35 pm on September 9th, 2013

    Bread!…Beau mentioned he was surrounded by corn fields, which he is allergic too, but he never once mentioned bread baskets…heh!heh!

  114. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:40 pm on September 9th, 2013
