We Have A Title!

“And, and – ” says Admin.

“The new Chet and Bernie novel, coming July 28,” Spence says, “is called SCENTS AND SENSIBILITY.”

“You thought that up all by yourself?”

“Wish you didn’t sound so surprised.”

Here are a couple pre-order links (Amazon and Books A Million). More to come.

    Ummm, Spence, we already heard that and then had a discussion about it yesterday. Consensus was that we love the title and are glad that it is coming out in July. I think I remember that a certain someone was upset about having to read if first on FB.

    Anyway good morning and Happy Voting Day. Going to leave in a few minutes and go to the polling place before work.

    Have a great day!

    Good morning, everyone! Yes Rio, you were right about the timing of the announcement, but logically there are several thousand Facebookie folks and we are only in the low hundreds. Don’t like it, but…
    Am off to toddler Tuesday at the library then bank, dof food and DDD meds. Doesn’t that sound like a fun filled, exciting day?
    Have a titilating Tuesday!

    GAH…not dof food…DOG food.
    Morning, Barb and flock.

    Checked posts from last night. Those are some nice looking Christmas Cactus in the picture from Staff.

    HOH, I would rather have my day than yours!

    Cactus? All I see is Riö and Alice having a chat. It looks like they are both miffed about something.
    Scents and Sensibility is on pre-order. You can be assured Amazon will somehow misplace my order and I’ll have to re-order come July 2015.
    A dental appointment looms on the morning horizon for someone here. Early voting was done last week.
    We shall return later today.
    Hope everyone has a good morning, which continues on into the day ahead.

    Just got back from voting. They had already had over 100 people at my little polling place. I asked my neighbor if they were using the same place this year and she said she didn’t know because she never votes. Duh!

    Masquers, you didn’t see the pretty plants in the window?

    Now off to work.

    I love the wordplay of the new title. It reminds me of one of my favorite figures of speech, zeugma. (The use of a word to refer to two or more words in different senses.) “He lost his glasses and his temper.”

    Good morning all.

    SQ will be doing a summer book tour! Wonder how he likes hot and humid….I just know he will swing by Houston again.

    Rio, is there a special email address we are supposed to send our photos and descriptions of auction/boutique items?

    Off to work an election polling place and will be gone 15-16 hours. I will be able to come home briefly a couple of times to check on cats/kittens/dog. Up at 5 am –certainly the earliest I’ve been up since retirement.

    VOTE, VOTE, VOTE…. (well, only vote once). 🙂

    Zeugma!…I like zeugma a lot too…snort!…I just never knew it had a name…heh!heh!

    Title!…What did I tell youse guys?…hmmm…We are last on the ole Totem Pole in the world of Social Media…grunt!

  11. B.Stover
    10:45 am on November 4th, 2014

    Zeugma is derived from the Greek for “joining.”

    By the way, Chet’s Facebook page has 6,172 “likes” which I assume means friends or followers.

  12. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:05 am on November 4th, 2014

    facebookie!…I bet most of that large number is from guys hitting the “Like” button more than once…heh!…Nobody can have that many friends. I mean One is Enough…grunt!

  13. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:10 am on November 4th, 2014

    BooBear!… I will be sending out detailed information regarding the Auction Items descriptions, photoz and where to send all that information as soon as I find out myself…snort!…November is already flying by at warp speed…wheeze!

  14. B.Stover
    11:21 am on November 4th, 2014

    There are currently 1,079 “friends” on Spence’s Facebook page.

  15. Siber-H
    11:41 am on November 4th, 2014

    Old news, but I will say it again…I really, really like the new title.
    Spence knows we would gripe if he didn’t post the news here even if it always appears first on facebookie.
    I am happy to learn so far ahead of time the book’s release date…looking forward to seeing the book’s cover. I hope we get another e-story before the new book.

    Hobbit, There is a Chicago saying, “Vote early and often”. Refers to the corruption in many of the Chicago wards.

    B&flock, We can thank Mayor Daley for your quote! Done at library and now going on errands now.

    Greetings all. Home from working check-in at the polls. It was BUSY! This was the busiest we have ever seen our little precinct. Our ward captain said he had never seen the voting machine with a four digit number for votes cast – but today there was over 600 before noon. And evening is the busiest shift.

    Rio – we look at things this way. FB is Spencer’s business outreach. WE are his “family”. He’ll never get a quilt from his FB followers. He’ll never have a calendar of FB dogs and kats. And facebookies may be facebookies, but WE are PLUNDERERS!

    And if he can get some of his FB’ers to support Snowhook, all will be forgiven. sniff

    Good day, All.

    Good on T&G.
    Keep on facebooking, Spence!

    1:55 pm on November 4th, 2014

    T&G, you put in a much more palatable way than did, you wordsmith, you.
    BUT, now that mom finally got home, we have found that she forgot DDD’s meds at the farm-a-see-ah. BBsoonj 🙁

  24. Riö -The Evil Pug
    3:11 pm on November 4th, 2014

    Blog-times!…Oh, so you are under the influence that Spencer still likes the blog?…snort!…I’m more of a blog half-empty instead of half-full kind of guy. I am missing the evidence to prove your “family” theory…sneeze!

  25. Herd of Hounds
    4:06 pm on November 4th, 2014

    Oops, just got home from errands and ???? Will go back and see what we have missed or if reading every other word.

    Test!…Blog bugs …gah!

  27. Tupper and Gilly
    4:41 pm on November 4th, 2014

    We can’t get on the blog by computer, only by phone.

    Hmmm – Rio- do you think it’s a conspiracy. Well no matter little Pug friend. You will always be part of our family.

  28. Riö -The Evil Pug
    4:43 pm on November 4th, 2014

    Re-Post!…Let me try this again…grump!

    MIA!….Here are things that are missing from the half-full blog ….grunt!

    No more Pop Quizzes.
    No more continuing blog stories.
    No more fun giveaways . Remember the Little Detective Agency cards?
    No more contests where pawtographed books are given out as the prize.
    No more Friends of Chet.
    No more FOM – which actually doesn’t bother me because I never won anyways.

    Wheeze! … I know HE IS BUSY ….grunt!….I’m just saying I miss these things…sniff!

    Memories!…. Remember when Spence or Admin used to post a quip down-blow every now and again? Heck, remember when Chet used to actually post on his blog? Remember when we all used to have interesting conversations? …snuffle! …There is one good thing – Alice doesn’t post here very much anymore….bless!

    Dear Ms Wose. Just to let you know our wonderful sparkly calendars did arrive today and they are magnificent. Thank you so much for including Princess Zeta as part of the calendar; she will get her very own copy this Saturday when we meet for our play date. And getting it on this very special day for my dad makes it even more wonderful. Thank you again.
    Your BFF Teddy RR.

    Couldn’t watch the link. Again it said we need QuickTime. Does everyone else have QuickTime except us?

  49. Herd of Hounds
    6:41 pm on November 4th, 2014

    Barb, Maggie-pie and Lucy Ball, Don’t know anything about “quick time” but we got to watch Alice talk 🙂

  50. Siber-H
    6:45 pm on November 4th, 2014

    Barb, I don’t have quick time, and I am not going to download it.

  51. Mollypop's Mom
    6:46 pm on November 4th, 2014

    Oh Rio, are we now old and worthless, turning into blog-dust? Sob.

  52. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    6:50 pm on November 4th, 2014

    HOH, We get a notice that says “QuickTime Player needs your permission to run”. What the hell is QuickTime?

  53. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    6:53 pm on November 4th, 2014

    The message about QuickTime has a box with a puzzle piece in it. If we click on it, nothing happens. This pisses me off.

  56. Tupper and Gilly
    7:42 pm on November 4th, 2014

    Barb – Quick Time is just a media player – no worries. We can’t play the video id we are on IE. If we open the blog using Chrome, it plays just fine. Do you have a Chrome option? It is also safe to download that.

    For Rio and MPM:

  57. Belle Starr
    7:45 pm on November 4th, 2014

    Sparkles! The Giant is my most favorite person in all the world.

  58. Barb, Maggie and Lucy

    T & G, we are using Chrome, not IE.

  59. Tupper and Gilly
    8:14 pm on November 4th, 2014

    Barb – hmmm – not sure why the QuickTime won’t run for you. Maybe MPM can translate the computer speak.

  60. Riö -The Evil Pug
    8:19 pm on November 4th, 2014

    Quicktime!…I believe we went through all this just a few weeks ago…grunt!….I swear. The dust bowl is coming sooooon!

    About computer problems: my career of 48 years was on the big IBM mainframe. Even in the last 10 years any problems I had with the PC on my desktop was taken care of by desktop services. At that time I was still in the world of Microsoft. After I retired I had yet another Microsoft-based PC go belly up like with little feet up in the air. In disgust I said it’s time to get rid of spinning disk drives that constantly fail, so I got a Mac Air with a solid state drive. this is so stable, it makes me wonder why I suffered so long.

  62. Mollypop's Mom
    8:57 pm on November 4th, 2014

    So Barb, if QuickTime needs your permission to run, do you have a way to give it permission? Or is it just not installed?

  63. Herd of Hounds
    9:13 pm on November 4th, 2014

    Glad y’all had quick time info. We just know we can see those things on the iPaw and ifone. Had trouble on old pos.

  64. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:13 pm on November 4th, 2014

    I went off the blog and Googled QuickTime, then clicked install. I guess it worked, because then I was able to view the Woody Guthrie link.

  65. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:15 pm on November 4th, 2014

    Rio, I think you are right. I think I bitched about QuickTime once before. But why can some folks see it and we could not?

  66. Herd of Hounds
    9:22 pm on November 4th, 2014

    We think the problem you had is a mystery of the inner web!

  67. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:27 pm on November 4th, 2014

    HoHo!…I think you need to stay out of a few conversations where you really do not have anything to offer for help…grump!

    Barb!…I’m proud of you for going out and Googling information…snort!

  68. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    10:02 pm on November 4th, 2014

    Rio I am so glad that you still want me to be a part of the blog. Heh. Did you love my beautiful ‘hat’ in that video? It is actually a bit of laundry aid called a color catcher. Staff used it on some sheets that Dawson dyed a lovely lavender. She didn’t want the dye to run onto other fabrics. I think it is ME ME ME.

    Staff made me put this photo up. It is disgusting. Really! But Staff looks funny with a tail mustache.
