“Did anyone throw anything?” Admin says.
“Not only no to that,” says Spence, “but afterwards some of them bought me a beer.”
“Next time I’m coming too.”

Welcome Charlie from Toronto – any other members of the nation within from north of the border out there?

I like to watch Bernie shave. All that lather on his face: that used to get me going but now I’ve got it under control, pretty much. Sometimes when Bernie’s shaving he gets this look in his eye and says things that are not so easy to understand. Like today:

“Know something, Chet? If I ever start that microbrewing company, I’ll call the beer Nagila. That way the jingle’s already done, just waiting for the product.” Huh? Not the microbrewing idea again? Then he starts singing, “Have a Nagila, have a Nagila.”

I don’t get it, but didn’t he look into the start-up costs and say it was too risky? Our finances!

Why? Because I just couldn’t make up my mind. Does that ever happen to you? First I was going to get back to the story of Colonel Bob’s son. Have I actually even started it? But it’s pretty complicated, and while I was sorting that out, this discussion broke out between Bernie, Spence, and Admin. Those hardly ever happen and they never go well. Bernie had a glass of bourbon, Spence had a beer, and Admin drank water. Hey! Just like me. Admin and I have something in common! I’ll try to think of more in-common things. Maybe some other  time. But meanwhile this discussion was all about killer whales. It got a little heated, for example, Admin saying, “Notice the killer part, right in their name? Combine that with the equivalent of locking them up in a tiny cell and what have you got?” I didn’t know, had no idea what was going on. Then I remembered that Bernie said there’s some kind of question down below about Nance. Nance? Isn’t she breaking rocks in the hot sun long about now? What comes first, the trial or the rock breaking?

See how confusing this is? So no post today. What’s that over there? A nice little patch of sun on the rug? Hard to resist. In fact, impossible.

Happy Labor Day

Bernie says it’s Labor Day and we’re kicking back. Some of the guys from Metro PD are coming over. A keg of beer just got delivered. The driver turned out to be Canadian. “Hey,” Bernie said to him, “did you know Labor Day started in Canada?”

“Eh?” said the Canadian guy.

Bernie laughed and laughed. If something was funny I didn’t get it. Was it possible Bernie had downed a quick one already?

“And no wearing white after today,” Bernie said after the beer track drove away. Was he saying that to me? I never wear white. I have two collars, the brown leather one for everyday, the black leather one for dress-up. Bernie was starting to worry me. I went over and sat on his feet. He laughed again and said, “Good boy.”
