When You’re A Pro

The man puffed a pretty little smoke ball into the air. I got a crazy urge to fetch it! Instead I let it drift away and disappear. We were on the job, after all, and if you’re a pro you behave like a pro. Better to know what the job is, of course, but not necessary. That’s what being a pro is all about. Hey! What a thought! All of a sudden I understood my work like never before.

    Of course Chet is a pro. He knows his job is to close cases by grabbing the perp.
    A good day to all!

    No doubt you are a pro Chet!

    If I am not mistaken, Friend is celebrating a birthday today. I believe Rio celebrates his birthday today too. Hope there are hot wings, green chili, and a big vat ‘o beer for youse! Sending you many happy returns of the day!

    A gray, rainy day in this neck of the woods.

    Good day to all!

    Happy birthday, Friend! Under the cover of dark, we not only delivered a vat o’ beer, but we also set up a bouncy castle in Rio’s backyard. We didn’t want Mother to notice, so we opted to rent a camouflage bouncy castle.

    Wose: It’s all fun and games until you realize that it doesn’t camouflage the bouncer. So therefore…Mother could see us taking it for a test bounce.

    WATP: Uh, could youse send us a file hidden in a cake? We were so focused on the bouncy castle that we forgot to bring a birthday cake. Plus, friend will get a file that she never knew she wanted or needed?

    Burp!…My friend told me to thank youse all for your kind birthday wishes…snorkel!…Since I got a Vat O’ Beer from those Thieves she decided to stop off and buy herself a bottle of sparkling wine…gag!…She also bought us a cake but I’m not allowed to have any of that. I wish those Thieves would have brought some hot wings to go with the beer…gurgle!

    Yes. It is tax day (some years) and therefore it is Rio’s and friend’s birthday.

    Happy Birthday!

    A bouncy castle may at one time have sounded like fun but these days sounds like nausea. I will wear my camo outfit in case I can’t resist. Save me so

    I will lift a glass of wine to the birthday festivities. it sounds like the birthday dinner will be scrumptious even if Friend has to cook the meal herself instead of being waited on hand and foot.

    Cheers everyone!

    Happy Birthday Friend.
    We are getting ready to video chat with the sister’s tonight.
    Keiko just saw a doe walk through the side yard. It made her sit up alert and professional. She likes to watch them.

    Friend stuck the landing! We give it a 10 out of 10 for not being panned and a 10 out of 10 for not spilling any beer out of the red solo cup.

    Last chance to support the animals of San Diego County.


    Diana and I will be walking tomorrow on our own. My Mom had an accident six weeks ago so she and Dolly won’t be joining us. I’ll take some photos of us on our walk and post them to our SD Humane page.

    It’s Southern California. Since we’ll be sticking close to home mostly concrete so nothing very picturesque. But we shall walk proudly. Weather forecast is sunny and about 70 degrees. Yes, I know. But for the sake of charity we will suffer through it.
