Underneath the Tree?

Do Chet and Bernie novels make a nice holiday gift? You make the call! But Christmas does come up from time to time. Here’s a  little something from Of Mutts And Men, the most recent. (And they can be read in any order!)

Bernie took a deep breath. “Nice air,” he said.

That was interesting. Did it mean Bernie found some air nice and some not nice? What made this air nice to him? I took a casual sniff, breathed in a river of scents, way too many to even get started on now. But there was lots of pinon pine aroma, a bit like chestnuts roasted at Christmas – before the fire extinguisher comes out – and also the smell of hot asphalt, rising from the Valley floor. So Bernie liked that mix, pinon pine and hot asphalt? I’d have to remember that.

    Chet is making me laugh, as always!

    I am thinking the air may not be too nice if you are hiding from a thunderstorm in a closet and Rio is in there with you! Heh! :^)

    Good day to all!
