Those Dog Days


Go ahead and read Bob’s column from 3/7/22. When I saw the first paragraph and a picture was mentioned, I went into full-on panic mode.

Thankfully Bob is still following the rules of the law layeth down upon him many, many years ago.

We were chugging along with the print edition and someone in Hollywood (who I’m still waiting to hear back from regarding my newest idea(s)) noticed. They bussed us out and wanted us to work on a tv show, something to do with six kids and a maid and I think there might have been parents.

Anyway, we tossed around some ideas, and it was Bob who came up with the idea that they were missing a dog. So, a dog was written into the show, and they were off and running.

Something happened between Bob and that original dog. I think it had to do with People Crackers and how one of them wouldn’t share with the other. After only a few episodes, the original dog was mysteriously replaced by another and we were told to leave Hollywood.

Some years later we were summoned back to Hollywood because someone needed help with a show about a dog and some kids that solved mysteries. Ideas were again tossed around and it was Bob who came up with the idea of bringing on a nephew of the main dog to pump up the ratings. It failed miserably and we were told to leave Hollywood again.

So I sued Bob and the ruling was that he couldn’t ever publish pictures of me facing the camera.


More Lunatic Ravings…

Stephen Johnson

The idea of building a website with Bob came from Stephen in the days of message boards and chat rooms. We settled on the name and the rest is history. Retired since he hit the ripe age of 25, he spends most his time doing odd-jobs around the house and digging thru trash bins for "stuff that's still good." Stephen has contributed several short stories and hosted the "Lunatic Ravings" column since the beginning (1999). The idea of writing weekly columns came from Stephen before blogs or blog sites ever existed. So, I guess that makes him THE FIRST BLOGGER IN THE WORLD!!!
