Willie McCovey, one of our favorite ball players, and his name will live for a long time, partly on account of McCovey Cove.

And here’s Willie McCovey in his prime. Did anyone hit the ball harder?

“Son?” said Bernie. “I thought you had twin daughters.”

“I do,” said Colonel Bob. We were in the bar at the Dry Gulch Saloon and Steak House, the patio part, one of my favorite places. We’re partners in the Little Detective Agency, me and Bernie, maybe something I should mention from time to time, and this is a time, so how about now? Colonel Bob is an old pal of Bernie’s from the war, but I only got to know him later – that’s all in Thereby Hangs A Tail. Before Thereby Hangs A Tail was Dog On It. After Thereby Hangs A Tail comes To Fetch A Thief. There’s also the other guy. Some talk went on that he started a new book yesterday, a new kids series. About what? Not sure. I just know the first sentence, because Spence and Admin were batting it around yesterday. Not really batting like baseball, although there is a bat in To Fetch A Thief. Bernie’s hoping to get it after the trials because it’s a Willie McCovey model. Not sure who Willie McCovey is. A perp? Possibly. There’s Willie Mungrew, for example, now at Northern State Correctional, but also Willie McTell, who we listen to sometimes in the Porsche. Have I mentioned the Porsche recently? Maybe tomorrow.
