What’s In A Name: Leda

Ms. Publicist: Fifteenth of the month, when we discuss names. Last time, Spence, in our discussion of Ms. Oxley, a minor character in A Fistful of Collars, you mentioned how important names were to you, and that you actually can’t write the character until you have the right name. How about this month we talk about a more important player in the Chet and Bernie series, namely – as it were, heh, heh – Leda?

Spence: That came to me right away – there were no other candidates for the name of Bernie’s ex-wife. At first, I was just attracted to the sound: strong, punchy, even a bit harsh. And of course if you had a South Boston accent that would be exactly how you’d say “leader.” That put me in mind of Orwell. So the name was carrying some connotative freight, but hidden so you don’t get hit over the head with it.

Ms. Publicist: Speaking of freight, we haven’t even come to the Greek mythology part yet.

Spence: An added bonus, that led directly to the swan fountain left behind by Leda on the back patio of Chet and Bernie’s place on Mesquite Road. Bernie – at least so far – hasn’t thought about the fact that in the myth Leda had a husband and that the swan was the seducer, and that therefore a stone reminder of her infidelity is splashing merrily away out back twenty-four seven.

Ms. Publicist: Will Bernie think about all that in some future book, say, The Sound and the Furry?

Spence: Good question!

Ms. Publicist: See you May 15, everybody, for our next installment of What’s In A Name!

    Happy birthday wishes to Senior and his Friend! Snort!

    Very interesting information about Leda. Personally, have never been wild about Greek mythology and Zesus, in the physical form of a swan, seducing Leda. Surprisingly, never got the connection with the fountain on the patio.

    Ptherwise, good morning everyone. Do you all have your taxes done?

    More rain here overnight. Will it ever end?

    The Boston accent part is interesting–“leader.” Orwell of 1984?

    Happy birthday Rio and friend.

    Good morning all.

    Yes, Happy birthday to Rio and friend. Glad she is taking the day off from the no-fun work place.

    Gooood morning everyone!
    Mom shared her Leda ideas while reading DOI. Said she learned it a loooong time ago. (Boy is she smart)
    Paws, tails and eyes are crossed here for those not up to snuff.
    RIO (& friend): Whoo hoo yodel howlllll to ya’ll. (Hear music and harmony)
    Name…Pookey. Back in ’92, mom & the Apprentice Old Fart (he hadn’t graduated to Old Fart back then) went from San Diego to Sacramento to visit dad’s bro. They met wolf hybrid pups (5 wks & rejected by mother). Picked one & drove 400+ miles home with the name debate. Dad always wanted a dog named Pookey. Mom'”We are not naming a wolf Pookey!” So, dad waited until he met a rescue pup named Pookey in 2006. She’s half Aussie Shep, half Chow. 1 blue eye, 1 gold eye and she IS her daddy’s girl.

    Peeking from a corner of the quilt:

    Happy birthday to the hunk of burning pug, Rio! May you have cake, and Slim Jims, and another win for the Rockies. I am sending you a gentle kiss of your pug lips. (Hope our crooked teeth don’t get caught). I would alos like to gently curl and uncurl your tail through my fingers.

    Rio’s Friend: Blow out all the candles, and may your wish come true. Hoping you have one helluva a birthday! May the Rockies keep winning!

    Greek myth is fun. From the seduction by Zeus, Leda gave birth to four children. (Some myths say that she laid eggs.) There is no agreement on this but some myths say that her husband, Tyndareus, King of Sparta, was the father of Clytemnestra. She married Agamemnon who led the Greek forces during the Trojan War. He sacrificed their daughter Iphigeneia to get the ships out of the doldrums. Clytemnestra and her lover Aegisthus kill him when he returns home with Cassandra, his war prize. This leads to their son, Orestes, killing his mother in revenge with the help of his sister Electra.

  8. O'Howlers
    9:37 am on April 15th, 2013

    Oh yeah. That stuff sounds “fun”, Bee.
    Happy Birthdays, Rio and Friend. Honestly, you share the same birthday?

    Names. Hmmm. Since Annie is still under the quilt, we will start with her. Her daddy’s name is All Psyched Upp, because his daddy is Reserve National Champion Padron’s Psyche. Annie’s mom’s name is Shai Ann because her daddy is National Champion Simeon Shai. So our Annie is named Psy Ann for both dad and mom. She calls herself Annie, pure and simple.

  9. Herd of Hounds
    9:38 am on April 15th, 2013

    Yep, the Greek myths put the FUN into dysFUNctinal!

  10. B. Stover
    9:43 am on April 15th, 2013

    The other three children are by Zeus: Helen (of Troy), who is married to Menelaus, brother of Agamemnon. She is abducted by Paris (for the full story see “The Judgment of Paris”) and taken to Troy–the beginning of the Trojan War. (Of course, the real reason for the Trojan War, if it occurred, was that the Greeks wanted a free trade route from west to east but Troy controlled the Hellespont, now called the Dardanelles.)

    The other two children of Zeus and Leda are Castor and Pollux, twins who are connected to the constellation Gemini based on several other myths.

    Fun right? I’ll stop now.

    35! Mom finally took Rio’s age quiz, and she is 35. Not bad considering she had to pick Errol Flynn because she can’t stand any of the other 3.

  13. Barb & Maggie
    9:52 am on April 15th, 2013

    Good one Sharon. We agree, family killing family is just too violent for us. And Leda laying eggs after the swan tryst, please!

  14. Barb & Maggie
    9:55 am on April 15th, 2013

    There is a chef on tv from a restaurant called The Girl and the Goat!

    Bee, This Greek mythology thing just shows how much more intellectual you are than Barb!

    OK, off the PT and a quick trip to Farm and Fleet.

    Happy birthday Rio and Friend. When you blow out the candles on the birthday cake, I wonder what your wishes will be. Maybe for the Rockies to win the World Series or for the busy place to blow up into 1 million pieces.

  16. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Birthday!…Snowing like a bastard and someone is not looking forward to having to go to the DMV this morning….grunt!

    Rose!…You naughty, naughty girl!…snort!

    Gift!…From her mother – A Thermos….cough!

    Gang!…Someone here says thanks for all the nice birthday wishes. We will try and have a good day even though it is snowing and has messed up all of the fun plans we had planned…sob!sniff!

  17. Tupper and Gilly
    10:52 am on April 15th, 2013

    Rio – HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you and your friend!

    HOH – that was a laugh out loud comment.

    Bee – who is Zeus? Who is Electra? Who is Menelaus? Who is Paris? Who is Cassandra? (tee hee – it was just too good to resist)

    We always thought that the names in Chet’s books gave us a good mental image of the characters. Personally, we have always seen Leda as petite, but tough, long painted fingernails, just a little too much eye make up and stirrup pants. With high heels.

    We did get the fountain thing in the first book, and have often wondered why the smartest guy in the room didn’t get it.

    Mama says she is off to the hospital to see how the fun and games are going today. Keeping paws crossed for Chato, Tenzing and anyone else snuggled under the quilt.

  18. Macy's mom
    11:07 am on April 15th, 2013

    T&G, it sounds like you see Leda as a Jersey Girl!

    Happy b-day to the snow-bound bunch.

    We have been keeping up, just nothing worth saying. Bleh

    Good morning y’all.

    Stop sniffing my UnderBits!

    Ve think is mythology stupid. Beautiful voman is seduced by glorified duck? Is almost as silly as idea of shove Newf into Corgi suit to go to Royal Vedding.

    Oh…vait a minute…….

  23. B. Stover
    11:28 am on April 15th, 2013

    The best thing about the Chet and Bernie series (besides the voice of Chet and the way his mind works, which causes those wonderful convoluted sentences) is the partnership between Chet and Bernie. That is why both Suzie and Leda are superfluous.

  24. Terry Ballard
    11:28 am on April 15th, 2013

    As for the naming of names, I’ll bet that I’m the only person here who was named after a cartoon. Those of us of a certain age will remember the series “Terry and the pirates.” That’s where Terry Lee Ballard came from. My dad found the address of Milt Caniff in New York, and was rewarded with a color portrait of Terry, signed to me by the author. That picture still hangs on the wall of my office/library room.

  25. B. Stover
    11:34 am on April 15th, 2013

    T&G: You shouldn’t ask a professor questions unless you want possible answers. I’m assuming yours are rhetorical.

    Stories (including the Greek myths) are depictions of human nature which is why I find them interesting.

  26. Macy's mom
    11:37 am on April 15th, 2013

    Sorry Corgis. I don’t know how to remove it.

  27. B. Stover
    11:54 am on April 15th, 2013

    There is nothing undignified about Macy’s pug and corgi picture. It seems to me that if humans had a dog’s keen sense of smell, that is the way we would learn and communicate also. (I remember smelling potpourri once and it immediately took me back to pots of white paste we had in elementary school.)

    Rio: Junior couldn’t sleep last night. He wanted to be the first to send birthday wishes. As for me an the rest of the team, we’re not the first but we are still sincere when we say: Pugs and kisses and happy birthday wishes!

  29. Melanie

    Did everyone hear that?

    Sniff!….Spencer and Admin did not say Happy Birthday to me…wuffle!….The said Happy Birthday to Melanie. How come I get the cold shoulders??….sniffle!…Was it something I said? Did?….grunt!

  31. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:31 pm on April 15th, 2013

    Storm!….It’s still snowing hard here. But the good news is the really bad storm is still on its way…grumble!…Her mother is already trying to get out of going to lunch – which is just fine with someone else…heh!

    Errands!…Now she is taking off in the snowstorm to do errands come hell or high water…grunt!

  32. Tupper and Gilly
    12:33 pm on April 15th, 2013

    Dear Bee – no the questions weren’t rhetorical, they were facetious. And silly.

    Melanie – hope you have recovered from the excitement of yesterday.

    The latest from the medical front – the Storyteller is now on a regular, full access diet. Of corse this morning, that meant reconstituted, powdered eggs. Yum.

    But he is making remarkable strides, both literally and figuratively. And while he will not be moved to rehab today, at least his IV has been removed, he has had a shower, and there is a possibility of human food from now on.
    Things are looking up.

  33. Herd of Hounds
    1:07 pm on April 15th, 2013

    T&G: Yeah for tha Storyteller!
    The difference between rhetorical and facetious? Rhett Butler and a fast fish. Oh and “facetious is one of 2 words in Engllish eith all five vowels in alpha sequence (for those who care).

  34. Melanie
    1:09 pm on April 15th, 2013

    They eat humans at that hospital? Jeez Louise.
    Get out of there as soon as you can, Storyteller!

    Names: i will start with RB Eleanor. Eleanor was named for the late Prez’s wife. She came to this village to give a speech about small businesses. At that time there was a paper mill across the street, a pond behind us, and the mill got it’s power from a water turbine.

    Eleanor Roosevelt wanted to rename our village to “Paper Mill Village”, but the name did not catch on. She gave the speech from our house, and it is thought that she stayed the night.

    Eleanor Woofevelt . .

    Spence always comes up with perfect names for people and animals.
    The name, Leda, just fits that woman.

    Happy Birthday to Rio and Friend. Husky Hugs and birthday kisses
    going out to Rio’s Friend. GO ROCKIES!!

    GO LEONARD! He is doing so well.

  36. Siber-H
    1:21 pm on April 15th, 2013

    Fellow Sibers, speaking of names….The name of your horse, Chato, caught my eye immediately. Was the horse named after the Apache Chief, Chato?
    Chato, the man, not the horse, is buried in NM.
    Let us know when you can what the vet says about Chato, the horse. Paws crossed the vet can help him.

    What also caught my eye immediately…Wookie’s Dad is going to see the Rockies play the Nats!! That will be a special game for Rio and I to watch.

    My first dog as a grown up was named Cinnamon because she had a black face with brown eyebrows. That started a tradition for a time of having a “spice” of some kind in my dogs names. My second dog had reddish-orange hair and was named Ginger.

  38. Herd of Hounds
    1:47 pm on April 15th, 2013

    We are really enjoying the first “official” day of “What’s in a Name”. Many people put more thought into their aminal’s names that into their 2 legger’s names. Case in point: mom. Her folks were sure she was a boy and going to be “Micheal Lawrence”. Oops, not a boy. What to do? Why not Micheala? No, lets choose “Sharon Kathleen Vermeulen”. Yikes, what a mouthful for a moniker!

  39. Rose
    2:27 pm on April 15th, 2013

    From under the quilt: Terry, I am of a certain age that I do remember Terry and the Pirates, especially when it was printed in the big color comic section of the New York Daily News on Sunday. Going back to my ham and Swedish fish sandwich.

    So happy to hear the great progress the Storyteller is making!!

    Mom just texted us. She and Pop are waiting for Chato,. We asked her about Chato’s name. She said he was named after a character in a Charles Bronson Western. He is a Mestizo, but we don’t know what that is. Mom and Pop did not name him. The only horse they named is Annie. The others are Abby and Ned.

    3:21 pm on April 15th, 2013

    Terry, that was a very interesting story about Terry and the Pirates.

    Barb’s first very own dog was a Welsh Terrier and she was named Wynderlyn Sylva. Her call name was Sibby. Barb saved her own money to buy Sibby by babysitting for .35 cents per hour. Yeah, now days babysitters get $8.00 per hour minimum. That was a lot of child care!

    Sox!…I wonder if Spencer is down there for the Red Sox opening day game?…sniff!… My paranoid mind hopes there are no other b-o-m-b-s planted for that big event….yeeeeep!…Be careful Spencer!

    Creator – there is so much hatred and anger in the hearts of humans. Please be with all of us today, help us to take hatred from our hearts and guide us in the ways to love every creature of your earth.

    Home is a good place. We just got home with Chato. He is, as supected, permanently blind in his right eye. He has glaucoma, but also his lens is behind his pupil and squashed down at the bottom. The pressure is what was making that eye bulge a little, so we need to give him 2 different meds 2 x a day, and then take him back for re-testing in a month. We are exhausted from this long day.
    It is not the Howlers’ uncle who lives in Boston; it is my nephew. In fact, all of those brothers live in the area, but he is the only one who lives in the city itself. My neice is probably on her way there now, because she is FBI. I’m trying to get an update from her.
    I will always remember where I was for this sad event: waiting and worrying about Chato at New Bolton.

    Most of the people we know in Boston are okay. Several we haven’t heard from, but it is school vacation, and hoefully, they have gone somewhere with their children and grandkids.

    Gah!…We are back to watching the coverage of the Boston Bombs and the stories are just getting worse and worse…sniffle!…Just Terrible!

    Storm!….A person my friend knows at the busy-place called to say the bony-fingered one wanted everyone to take their lap-tops home tonight so they could work if the office is closed due to the snow storm…grunt!…Well, if the office is closed it is considered a snow-day and the rule put down is NO WORKING FROM HOME ever….sniff!…So someone here is saying, “To hell with her!”…heh!…Hope!Hope! she stays home tomorrow…heh!

    We just got back from our favorite ice cream parlor. This was a totally unexpected treat!
    We learned that our cousin (we really thought he was our uncle) had tickets for the stands right across the street from where the first bomb went off. He decided to stay home and study for a test instead. His friend went though. He is fine.
    We also learned that Andy goes to the bar next door to the explosion for the last 10 years. His friend works there and says there were body parts all across the front of the bar. How awful is that!

    Think nothing of it, Rio. Misery does love company, you know.

    Mom said she was having a panic attack on their way home from Chato’s appointment. She was not hearing back from Andy and she had a terrible feeling. When he got word to her that he made it home safely, she was so relieved. But now she is feeling so sad for all those folks who didn’t get that relief yet.

    Misery!…hmmphf!….We need some relief of misery – turning the channel to the ballgame…sniff!…The New York Mets are playing here in the snow tonight…grunt!…I guess those guys are used to cold snowy weather, so it should be fine….heh!…Is Rose a Mets fan? I forget…grunt!

    It seems like we all have some connection. Kelly’s best friend, who lives near Birmingham, AL. was there with her husband and oldest son. Hilary had just finished the race and she was about a block away with her husband and Conner who is 16. They were looking at a college for him while they were in Boston. All are fine, but they said they heard it and felt it. Very scary.

  91. Melanie
    9:29 pm on April 15th, 2013

    Dear Creator,
    Please let your healing love help The Storyteller through this time of sickness.
    May you ease his fever.
    May you ease his fears.
    May you hold The Storyteller and Golinka safely in your hands.

  92. Melanie
    9:32 pm on April 15th, 2013

    Dear Plunderers, Our Storyteller is spiking a very high fever. Prayers are needed. They are trying to figure out what is going on.

  99. Melanie
    9:57 pm on April 15th, 2013

    Rio, I just finished talking to Golinka. She has settled into the reclining chair in The Storyteller’s room. The nurse and the doctor are both acquainted with what happens if they take a short cut. They are doing everything possible to figure out what is going on. I believe in order to avoid being dropped kicked down the hallway.
    The fever appears to have come on in an hour. He was fine, and then he was not.
    I am going to bed. My agreement with Golinka is she will call me if she needs me.
    I should know more tomorrow, but she might be on Chet’s Blog before I am.

    We are praying very hard for Leonard here in Chevy Chase. Thanks for the update Melanie.

  102. Tupper's Mama
    10:29 pm on April 15th, 2013

    Dear Family – little bit of a scary time here. Leonard’s foot suddenly started swelling and turning red. He said the sheets hurt. Then he started with a fever.
    The doctor suspects a blood clot. Leonard is having an ultrasound right now to see if this is the problem. This us one of the dangers after a surgery like this, but we thought we had avoided the danger because he was getting up and walking many times every day.
    The doctor will read the ultrasound right away and let us know. If it is a clot, he will be here in the hospital for a while.
    Sure glad there is a recliner chair. And glad we have a nice comforting quilt to pull up around us.

    10:36 pm on April 15th, 2013

    I have crawled out from under the quilt to thank my lucky stars that Beau and Rio were not under there at the same time…and to say Happy Birthday to Rio! I’m sorry to read that it hasn’t been the best day.

    Prayers being sent express to Storyteller and Golinka.

  104. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:38 pm on April 15th, 2013

    Golinka!….Awwwwww shoot! We here thought all that stuff was behind Leonard as well…sniff!…Goes to show we are not in charge of anything…snort!…As Leonard’s body heals different things will happen. Considering the incredible major surgery he just went threw, I bet other things will happen…wheeze!…Poor Golinka, at least she has a comfy chair…wuffle!

    I am glad the Leonard wasn’t yet transferred to the rehab place. I tend to think that hospitals discharge people too soon just for this reason. It is better to err on the side of caution. He is where he needs to be right now.

  107. Gus and BooBear
    10:56 pm on April 15th, 2013

    Prayers for the Storyteller from southeast Texas. Glad the doctors are on top of the situation and checking things out. We know Amalia won’t be getting much rest tonight.

    Amalia, We are all there with you and Leonard tonight. We love you. The two of you do so much for other people. We deeply appreciate your prayers, gentle words, and funny stories.

    The doctors will get this figured out.

    Ok – fever is back down. His leg is still swollen, but the nurse in tonight is the really really good one and she is going to be checking him a lot.
    She sent me home with assurances that all will be well and that she would call if there was any emergency.
    Leonard is sleeping. I will be too – right after I say my thank yous for all the prayers.
    G’night Family.

    I spoke with Jodi, the person not the puppy. She added her good thoughts and prayers for the Storyteller and Golinka. She also said she has been through a similar thing with Mick, the person not the puppy. She said she is sure they will get it figured out and the Storyteller will be fine. Jodi said that Cousin Bob needs to be under the quilt. I told her there was room and let her know Tenzing makes a great pillow.
