Bernie plays the ukulele. He has a real nice one that he loves. Once we had to pawn it at Mr. Singh’s, not a good day. I think that’s in Thereby Hangs A Tail, which comes after Dog On It, but Bernie says not to mention it on account of being so far in the future, so I won’t. When It’s Sleepy Time Down South is my favorite, but I also like Stardust and Up A Lazy River. We have rivers here in the Valley – and out in the desert, too – but they’re all dry. Bernie says that when Coronado came through here some of them flowed year-round. Bernie’s no fan of Coronado. Who is Coronado, exactly? Kind of a mystery, but that’s what we do, me and Bernie, solve mysteries. It’s pretty clear Coronado’s some kind of perp, meaning one day I’ll be grabbing him by the pantleg. Case closed.

    Ah, some on Chet. You let us know that another book about your adventures is coming out and we won’t know when! How can I tell Mom when to get the book to read it out loud to me – well maybe mom and dad were reading it to each other before bed each night BUT I listened too right between the crunching on my night time you get some too? Yummy. I also came from a shelter and had 6 homes before this, my forever home. Have lived here a long time and love it – long walks in the woods, car rides with my head out the window and turkey – have you ever had turkey! Wow. Well hungry now, gotta go and nudge mom for dinner. Hope to meet you Chet when you come to autograph your next book.
