Friend of the Month Reminder


July 31st, 2012 Posted 6:51 am

“Did July go by in a hurry or is it just me?” Spence says.

“Possibly the earth’s rotation speed increased and everyone was too busy to notice,” Admin says.

“What could raise the rotation speed?”

“The approach of a black hole, for one thing. But it’s time to remind everyone that today’s the last day of eligibility for August’s Friend of the Month contest. All you have to do is upload a photo to the Friends of Chet gallery. The random # generator does the rest! If you’re already in the gallery you’re eligible till the cows come home.”

“Don’t they come home every night?”

“Prize is a signed copy of The Dog Who Knew Too Much and the winning Friend of the Month is displayed for the entire month in the special place over on the right where Quito is now. It’s easy, it’s fun, and we’ll throw in a vegematic slicer.*”

Here are two new friends: Twizzle and dining dude. 

*an an actual lie re the slicer.


Peace on Earth

“And what about other planets?” Bernie says. “Any idea of the number of stars in just our own galaxy?” I love when Bernie talks like this, but what it means – I’ll leave that to you.

Merry Christmas to everybody, plus happy Festivus (to Diane B.), and great holidays all around.


Planet Earth

“Here’s something out of South Boston,” Bernie says. “This woman wants to start an overnight dog hotel, complete with massage, acupuncture and hydrotherapy.” Don’t know anything about those last two, but massage sounds nice. “It would create 17 jobs and provide training for 100 dogs. Sounds good to me. But the neighbors are up in arms. They’re making a big fuss about noise and smell.”

Noise and smell? Are any creatures noisier than humans, no offense? And as for smells, humans create way more than we do in the nation within the nation. Ever been to the dump, for example? I have no problem with the dump myself, always enjoy a visit there. Once we dug up an old computer and on it Bernie found all this evidence that sent a whole mess of perps up to Northern State Correctional. But where were we?

“Sometimes I think,” Bernie says, “that a whole bunch of people think this planet’s just for them.”

Yeah, that’s where we were.
