What’s Wrong With Tin Futures?

“She was dancing in a show at the Silver Dollar,” Foster was saying. “Under the name of Ethel – didn’t want to use her real name, which was Astrid Jason – but I didn’t know that at the time.”

“Ethel seems like a strange choice for a chorus girl,” Bernie said.

Chorus girls? My ears pricked up. They don’t match, by the way, something I found out not too long ago. Is it a problem? Not for me. But back to chorus girls – were they at all like Autumn and Tulip, those nice young ladies who worked for Livia Moon at her Friendly Coffee And More place in Pottsdale, which is one of the nicest parts of the whole Valley? The And More part was behind a door at the back, and what went on there I’m not too sure about. All I know is that Autumn and Tulip are excellent patters. Is that in To Fetch A Thief or somewhere else?

“Strange how?” said Foster.

“Ethel?” said Bernie. “Kind of old-fashioned. Not sexy.”

“The surname she used was Ready,” Foster said. “Ethel Ready.”

“Oh,” said Bernie.

    I said a four-letter word when I first saw this title.

    More people and a new place mentioned by Chet! Now, what does "ethel ready" mean (other than the obvious). Any connection to bootleg alcohol (I'm really asking).

    Stover – I think I said the same word! And I don't understand the Ethel Ready implications either.

    I'm glad we're back to the story! Makes me want to chase a butterfly or two!

    Soes anyone understant what Chet meant when he said that chorus girls don't match?

    I'm confused. I think I'll take a nap and see if I can't dream up some answers!

    Snort!…. I said ‘Crap’ when I first saw it….. and then I chuckled… heh! … I’m thinking the girls from ‘Friendly Coffee And More’ (what a great name!) must be in To Fetch A Thief… grunt!… There was a store called ‘Tennis And Other Racquets’ in Nerve Damage…I had to chuckle over that one too!… snicker!

    Oh Boy, Mom got all excited when she read "More about Tin Futures" – we all know how she is! We are a little confused on the Ethel Ready thing, too. Is that sorta like Ever Ready?

  8. Riö - The Evil
    6:04 am on May 10th, 2010

    Cough!… I think it means Ethel was Ready For Anything… snort! … Barb may be the only one who was actually excited about talking Tin Futures again… heh!

    Wolfie: Chet was referring to his ears when he said they don't match. I think this is a blog story and not a tease for TFAT. Chet and Bernie are arrested in Mexico in that novel.

    I have to finish grading exams.

    Mom just started Reality Check this morning. She had to go see the kids and grands for Mom's Day, so I got stuck at that boarding place all weekend. Not my favorite. I was glad to get back home- looks like the chickens survived fine without me.

    Rio, you laff at little Princessy me but I have a problem that you sure don't have. It's not chickens – it's hawks! I can't go outside alone because one of those big nasty birds will grab me and fly off. That should have been a problem for Princess too, although the book didn't mention it.

    Also, since I'm too small to go out in the winter snow, I use a puppy piddle pad. I sort of never get to go outside.

  14. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    7:05 am on May 10th, 2010

    (Blushing with embarrassment) Oh. I get it now. I love the fact that Chet's ears don't match!

  15. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    7:15 am on May 10th, 2010

    Poor Sam. You mean that you NEVER get to go outside and Chase Butterflies? NEVER? OMG!

    We know all about piddle pads here. Teddy uses them at night because she is old.

    Mom and I have been looking for a dog with ears that don't match since we read Chet's first book. Because we go to the adoption events and dog parks, we see a lot of dogs. So far, the search has been like the quest for the tower of chew strips. We can't find a dog with ears that don't match. Chet is, indeed, one of a kind.

    They are going to have to use hair color on the dog/dogs that play Chet in the movie.

    And speaking of four letter words – geeze, the flower pot thing failed and it looks like they're going to try a smaller flower pot.

    Rio – if you would have let the Pack take care of things, that gusher would have been stopped a long time ago.

    210,000 gallons a day = well, a lot. I can't count that high.

    Little Sam: I drove up to Alaska and on the front page of a small time newspaper was an article about a couple and their small dog. They'd stopped to get gas and let the little dog out when suddenly an eagle swooped down and grabbed that little dog and flew away. I'm glad you're careful about the hawks.

  22. Riö - The Evil
    8:20 am on May 10th, 2010

    Wow!… I thought Sam was exaggerating (again) about the Hawks… snort!… Be careful little Sammie!… grunt!… We don’t want to be reading about your demise on the front page of Princess Weekly….wheeze!

    There is a true story about an owl grabbing a cat in my neighborhood. A cop witnessed it. The cat surely weighed more than our little Princess. Just stay in the house, Sam.

  25. Riö - The Evil
    8:38 am on May 10th, 2010

    Swoop!…. I’d pay to see an owl try and carry AbbieTheKat off!… heh!… I bet even a hawk would have a hard time with that!… snicker!

    I also finished Bullet Point. It was excellent but I was not anticipating that ending and am wondering if I missed some clues besides the suddenly changed fingers and nail.

    Col. Bob's son is Ray Jason.

    **Potential spoiler alert**

    Wolfie's mom here:

    Stover – I felt the same way. Although I liked Wyatt initially, he made such poor decisions that I felt increasingly detached as the book progressed. My sons are nearly his age, and I tended to see things through the perspective of Wyatt's mom and Dan's aunt. He was obviously wounded but also self centered and oblivious to anyone else's feelings.

    I didn't like Greer either. I'm sorry, but I didn't. I know we were supposed to like her but I was unable to relate and there were way too many coincidences. I felt empty at the end of the book.

  33. Siberian Husky
    10:05 am on May 10th, 2010

    Rio, I will occassionally yark or woo-woo, but not even that very often. Here we go again, but, in general, it seems that the Siberian girls woo-woo more than the guys. My dear friend Molly talks a lot- it is mostly a woo-woo. Molly talks back to her mom when she gets in trouble, which gets my mom to laughing, and then both Molly and my mom get in trouble. I stay out of all that girl stuff.

  34. Riö - The Evil
    10:18 am on May 10th, 2010

    Yark!?… Whats a ‘Yark’?…. snort!… Which do you do more of, Yarking or Woo Wooing?…. cough!

  35. Sam
    10:25 am on May 10th, 2010

    I'm so excited to be a Godparent! Should my Mom be knitting little booties? Oh wait – 8 puppies x 4 feet – perhaps not.

    SPOILER ALERT for Bullet Point.

    Wolfie's mom: I didn't like Greer much because she was so changeable and often jealous. It was easy to believe that she had left with Van. I did like Wyatt probably because I thought of him as a young Hamlet trying to find answers and wondering should he "trust the ghost." What surprised me was Sonny and what he does to Greer and the others, even Wyatt at the end. How could he change so much after he learns about Charlene, or didn't he really change? Did we not really know him, which also means Greer's father didn't know him. I think the reconciliation at the end with Rusty (who seemed to change suddenly also, but that might again be narrative perspective changing) shows maturity on the part of Wyatt and there seems to be some optimism at the end rather than total tragedy (as in Hamlet).

    10:35 am on May 10th, 2010

    lol A yark is similar to a bark, but it is a yark. I don't do much of either. I am a pretty silent guy. My tribe does not bark at strangers that come to the door, mailmen, robbers, serial killers, or even other dogs.

    I do woo-woo at Molly when she arrives at the dog park because I am glad to see her. The joke at the park is that I am the only dog at the park that is happy to see her because she is such a poop head. I like my women a little wild.

  39. Riö - The Evil
    10:40 am on May 10th, 2010

    Wild!…. Don’t be getting any ideas about my Bess!…. snort!…. I wonder what a Newf puppy looks like anyway?…. grunt!… I guess I will find out in a few months… heh!

    Rio, I keep forgetting to say: In the tags on the right, there is a Martin Ramirez. Don't know if it's spelled the same as….Manny is it? He was part of the Greed case but he wasn't a perp.

    Hey everyone; back from vacation in Vermont. Had a great time, it was very cool every day except one, and got in a lot of hiking with my mom and dad, culminating with a five miler to the South Peak of Mount Tom on Thursday (actually ten miles for me, because I have four legs, not two, like my mom and dad). I'm in really great shape now Rio, so ready for the next mission, whenever. Tried to get my dad to divert to Danvers on the way back (even reprogrammed his Garmin Nuvi GPS) but he said we didn't have time. Maybe when we go back in October. Also, if anyone is interested, found a great interview with SQ/PA on the Barnes & Noble web page (just plug in DOI or THAT, and click on the tab labelled "Meet the Writer" about half-way down), including his favorite books and movies. Interesting observation about "Chinatown" the movie, which may explain Bernie's fascination with the acquifer. Tried to keep up with everything last week, but my dad's Blackberry just doesn't cut it. Glad that Chet is focusing again on the Colonel Bob situation; not too keen on tin futures anyway. Wookie

    12:47 pm on May 10th, 2010

    Stover, I am definately saying that Siberian Huskies are not guard dogs. Because of the eye makeup, some of us may look a little mean, but we are not. We are the worst of the worst when it comes to being a guard dog. A lot of the bad guys don't know that, though, cause we look somewhat wolf-like. We are pussy cats with humans and other dogs, but our peace with the natural world ends there.

    poop-head…ornery, full of mischief, always getting in trouble,sometimes a bully with other dogs, but not actually dog-aggressive.

    Rio, it was a dog that mom had a long time ago that got shat upon by the chicken. It wasn't Molly.

  50. Siberian Husky
    12:49 pm on May 10th, 2010

    Wait, wait, wait. Alaska? You didn't leave me in Alaska, or I wouldn't be here right now. Ha. Well, you almost did. I jumped in quickly. I need to get bigger, that's my new main goal in life, to get bigger. And we were…somewhere. I don't really know where we all were, but we went to places bought a lot of things, though we weren't in Branford…or…where ever we live…

    Anyways, I got A LOT of treats, and, sadly, a mini pool. And they ACTUALLY put me in it, telling me that I NEED to swim. I mean, what am I? A duck? I think not! I don't like water…What's been going on with posts? More on C-Bob? And what's with Sammie? She got carried away by an eagle or something? Well, that's never a good thing…

  53. Siberian Husky
    1:27 pm on May 10th, 2010

    Siber H.: I went to Alaska in 1993 – you weren't born yet. I'd probably not be able to handle a spirited dog like you because I'm a beginner when it comes to dogs.

    Lexi: Welcome back. Have you grown?

    Wookie: Welcome back. I've seen lots of your cousins on my daily ride around the lakes. Thanks for the tip of the interview with PA/SQ.

    Melanie: Grace is going to make us all siber god-parents? Yippee. Pass out the chewie treats to everyone.

  56. Lexi

    Lexi and Wookie – Welcome back! We missed you!

    Melanie and Gracie – Congratulations! When is the happy day? Can't wait to see photos. I betcha Newfie puppies are cute, cute, cute!!

    And Melanie – does this make you a grandma? Or…?? Mom said that when Teddy came to live with her, she was "with pups". Puppy daddy was apparently a Rotweiler, and Ted hated being a mom. She took one look at all 12 of them and said – euw, and mom and dad had to take over. After that, everybody gets an operation just as soon as they are hold enough. Mom said that she never wants to sit in front of a grocery store giving away pups to total strangers. She said that she always looked at the peoples teeth before she handed any over.

    Oh, and Lexi, some of us wanted to go on a Mission and plug up the big oil gusher but Rio thought it was too dangerous. He is right, of course, but it is so hard to sit by idly while, well, you know. Oil. Lot's oil. It is breaking our hearts. Even Bernie was in a bad mood because of it.

    Hey!!!

    I just heard on the news that Haines is donating 50 million pairs of panty hose to help the oil spill. Apparently they are filled with hair and they sop up the oil.

    Hair, we have lots of hair!!! Finally, something we can do to help!! Now, all we need is an address. Maybe something like:

    To: Big, nasty oil spill

    Somewhere in the ocean

    USA

    That should work. I'm going to have my mom start brushing me now!

    Good point, Stover, but they have lots of fireplaces and lots of Staff. I saw Camelot once, and although I didn't see anyone chasing you-know-whats, there was some significant frolicking happening there.

  70. B. Stover

    So Wolfie likes to frolic? And Rio hasn't explained how he claps.

  71. Siberian Husky

    The grooming salons at Petco are collecting their pet hair and sending it to help with the oil spill.

  72. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    4:40 pm on May 10th, 2010

    I love to frolic, but not today. Me and mom are in bed, listening to the rain, watching TV and eating junk food. Well, it's mostly mom eating junk food. She doesn't share much because she says that cheese puffs aren't healthy for puppy dogs. Sigh.

  74. Wolfie Wigglebutt

    4:48 pm on May 10th, 2010

    Go to the website of Matter of Trust to read all about how they are collecting both pet and human hair to help make the booms that contain the oil. They are getting hair and fur donations from all over the world.

    My thought exactly, Rio. Dogs to the Rescue! It is shedding time for most of us dogs, us huskies for sure.

    4:50 pm on May 10th, 2010

    Who was it that said to clap if you believe? Wendy in Peter Pan?

    Shed if you believe! The nation within the nation can save the day!

    Peter Pan? I think you're right.

    I can't remember….did it work? I think it must have.

    I don't shed, I get clipped, and I'm a big (fierce) dog so there's a lot of hair. My groomer is keeping my hair from my last cut to send.

    He says it to an audience of young kids. When I was a kid I always clapped. And yes Tinkerbell was saved.

    Mollypop! Ms Fierceness herself! You are helping to save the ocean! Yay!!

    I wonder if Teddy's groomer saved her hair? She had a LOT!

    Wow! Some of Mollie's hair is going to the gulf. Wouldn't it be cool if some hair from all of us could go to help contain the oil spill. I'm not going to the groomers even for this–they can come here to brush or mom can brush. No Bath!

    Now that I think of it, I always clapped too. I believed.

    Now, I'm not so sure.

    This baseball game is something else tonight. I know what Rio is doing-chewing his toenails just like I am.

    Hello all,

    Just spent another travel day and had to nap again at the end of it. All is well at our farm although it is raining here. Lovely visit with Dawson and her family. AbbietheKitty and Alice Johnson were very happy I had returned. Alice kept running around and jumping on things. Abbie had some lap time with the hubby.

    He also 'forgot' 24. Tooo bad. Guess you guys will have to HULU.

    OMG! Rio, you sure picked an exciting night to miss 24! We knew Chloe would end up helping Jack!! Tell us you DVR'd the episode or will be able to watch it on-line!! Mom and Dad had complained that the last few seasons Jack kinda got "wussified" (you know, developed a conscience). Well…Jack's back!!!! Back to doing anything it takes to get the answers! Super Bad-Ass tonight. Only 2 weeks left and it's all over. Bummer. Thanks goodness there is more Chet & Bernie to come.

    Congrats to Gracie and it was good to read something from everyone tonight. Except…was Abbie and Alice here today?

    Goodnight Gracie,

    And Gus and BooBear too. We weren't here most of the day. Just about 3 minutes before your last post.

    Congratulations to the little mother, Gracie!

    Nice to hear from Wookie and Siber-H. I knew exactly what S-H meant with the woo woo and the yark. I can just hear it.

    Welcome back little Lexi.

    Sorry about the beer Rio, you know how it makes you! Soooo sleepy. :-)

    See you all tomorrow.

    Hey Guys!

    There was an English king called Ethelred the Unready! It is amazing what you can find out reading Romance novels!

    ~Staff,

    (who napped too much and now is up very late reading)
