Friend of the Month Reminder


April 29th, 2017 Posted 8:03 am

“Almost the end of the month already?” Spence says.

“Time marches on, and at an accelerating pace,” says Admin. “The universe is expanding at an accelerating pace, so it’s no surprise. But more important, it’s time for the friend of the month reminder. All you out there have to do is upload your friend to the friends gallery on Chet’s FB page. The random number generator – “

“Patent pending.”

” – does the rest. The winning friend photo is displayed for the entire month in the prominent place on the FB page. And the winning friend’s human companion gets a free signed and paw-printed copy of the latest Chet and Bernie mystery, in this case SCENTS AND SENSIBILITY.”

No moon. That always makes the stars brighter, at least in my opinion. Bernie and I are out on the patio, just gazing.

“There’s this new theory, big guy,” he says. “All about multiple universes. Ours would be just one of many. And I mean many. In this multiverse system there’d be so many that it’s a dead certainty that there’d be another universe identical to ours. See the implications?”

If implications were out there, I was missing them. The stars looked the same as always.

“The implication,” Bernie said, “is that in this other universe at this very moment, another Chet and Bernie are doing exactly what we are, gazing at the stars and having a conversation about us.”

Another Chet and Bernie? We’ve been working pretty hard lately, and when that happens Bernie doesn’t get enough sleep. I’ll have to keep an eye on him.

This Universe: Good Enough


February 25th, 2010 Posted 8:38 am

“Here’s a story out of Germany,” Bernie says. “Seems the cops came looking for this perp at his place in some town near Cologne. Some pal of the perp – holding the perp’s dog, key point – opened the door and said the perp wasn’t home. But then he put the dog down, and the dog – no names in the story, but possibly a Jack Russell – ran right to a little cupboard and started wagging his tail. The cops opened the cupboard and – well, you know the rest.”

I do?

Bernie gives me a look. “Kind of like us, Chet, but in an alternate universe, all upside down and backwards.”

Alternate universe? Forget about it.

Admin: Thanks, Kathy Z.

A Scary Universe


December 16th, 2009 Posted 8:36 am

Bernie takes a look at yestersday’s post. “Nudie Cohn and Abraham Lincoln showing up together on the same page?” he says. “How often does that happen?” He pours some more coffee. I like that smell, although water is my drink. “Imagine,” he says, “some alternate universe where Nudie Cohn and Lincoln actually meet each other.”

Alternate universe? This was new. Bernie talks about the universe a lot, galaxies, stars, and big big numbers, way more than two. Alternate universe? You tell me.

“Suppose, for example,” Bernie says, “that in this alternate universe Nudie Cohn sold Lincoln one of his suits, the Porter Wagoner kind, and Lincoln wore it when he gave the Gettysburg Address. Would history have been different?”


Bernie smacks his head. That hardly ever happens. “What am I talking about?” he says. “Let’s get to work, big guy.”

I’m at the door.

Note to C. Harris: Working away on book #3. Maybe a scene from it will get posted tomorrow.
