Another Beauty Snippet

“What’s all that panting? Thirsty?”

Not in the least. And then extremely.

We parked by what looked like a glass-fronted store in  a strip mall. Bernie read the sign. “’Frontier Gazette. News you can trust since 1901.’” He filled my portable water bowl and I lapped it all up, then he refilled it and I lapped it all up again, and after that I gave myself a real good shake, some water droplets flying from my mouth and making tiny rainbows in the air. There’s all kinds of beauty in life. Thatwas my thought as we entered what had to be the office of the Frontier Gazette, if I was following things right.

A reader wrote to say she likes this little snippet from Of Mutts and Men, the latest Chet and Bernie novel:

Smoke rose into the light beam and mixed with the dust motes up in the golden air. There’s all kinds of beauty in life.

(Thank you, reader!)
