Matt1: One more day and my phone will stop ringing!

Rush: So, tonight, the PONIES rule!

Rush: Yes, matt!

Matt1: 15 calls today and 8 voicemails…..OUT of control!

Rush: WOW!

Rush: We just don’t answer unless we recognize the number!

Matt1: FL is a key State, but still

Rush: Yes it is!

Matt1: Me either

Rush: And CA is a forgone conclusion.

Matt1: Sadly

Rush: Yes…

Rush: But…there will be IOWA in our future.

Matt1: Soon!

Rush: Just don’t let outsiders moving in change your state!

Matt1: Are you ready for the colder weather there?

Rush: I remember the 2018 elections seeing a truck dropping off boxes of ballots at the corrupt pricinct in FL!

Rush: We will survive!

Rush: Rachel and I will be driving out at Christmas time.

Rush: (Second daughter)

Matt1: New Gov fired a few people in that election

Rush: YES! Rightly so!

Rush: OURS might have HIRED them!

Matt1: lol

Rush: I expect LOTS of cheating in this election.

Matt1: When are you going out in Dec?

Rush: I have actually been losing sleep over the prospects…

Matt1: I think PA is the State to watch

Rush: Yes, December, but not moving in then.

Matt1: Before the holiday?

Rush: Just taking the first load of things and then doing a week of interior painting.

Rush: Leaving Dec. 20.

Rush: The plan is to power through and get there in two days.

Matt1: Fun! It will be good bonding too!

Rush: First planned stop: Dalhart, TX.

Rush: Then from there, go the rest of the way.

Rush: !5 hours each day.

Matt1: Yikes

Rush: Now, i am not sure about road conditions then!

Rush: We did it in two days this summer.

Rush: 12 and 18 hours.

Rush: Of course, marie was sharing the driving.

Matt1: Drive home is always the roughest though

Matt1: Welcome back….I see you brought the colder wearther….

Rush: Understandable!

Matt1: I’m cued

Rush: Hard to believe that this is our 20th Melbourne Cup in 21 years!

Rush: It seems we missed one one year.

Matt1: Hmmm

Rush: I think that was the year I was mixed up with the date of the race, and it was already run by by the time of our Chat!

Rush: Part of our “lore,” I guess!

Matt1: That was the ONLY year I was going to win too!

Hounder: We appear to have brought the cool with us.

Rush: 2009, I believe!

Rush: Good for frozen orange juice, Hounder!

Rush: Well…

Godwinshelley2: I could not wear a white suit and do that experiment

HonoluLou: Rush, did you call me (haha)

Louise: SPLAT!

Rush: LOU: πŸ™‚

Len Freeman: Horse racing beats murderl..

Hounder: I couldn’t wear a white suit and stay clean

Louise: Nice white suits

Rush: And, as we shall see…it might just attract “same.”

HonoluLou: Is that Bing Crosby? Oh sorry, it’s Son #1…the hat had me confused.

Rush: “Smart fly keep out of gravy.”

Rush: Note this year’s coin above…

HonoluLou: There’s your coin, aye Rush.

PaulM: i JUST got here

HonoluLou: Actual Coin? Really?

Rush: Well…then I guess I was on time!

Rush: πŸ™‚

Godwinshelley2: We haven’t distributed any horses yet, Paul.

Godwinshelley2: 5:30

HonoluLou: Louise, I read your great article on gambling…very deep!

Godwinshelley2: 6:00


Louise: Thanks HL

Matt1: Bad Avalanche!

Godwinshelley2: So, Lou, what is the deadline?

Len Freeman: Frankie Darro — really could ride.

Godwinshelley2: Teamed with Mantan Moreland in a series of films

Rush: Yes, Len?

Rush: Yes, GS!

PaulM: that coin looks like a Walking Liberty half dollar

Rush: Yes, it is.

Len Freeman: He and Junior Coughlin, the other main jockey in this, ,were both regulars in the serials.

HonoluLou: GS, I like to get a 1st draft to Mr. Glick by 15 December. Rush approves the input, articles and final product as our fearless leader.

Louise: My copy of this film is beautiful: very sharp.

Rush: (blushes…)

Godwinshelley2: Will think about it, Lou

Rush: Think…then do, please!

Rush: πŸ™‚

HonoluLou: GS, T.Y.S.M.

Godwinshelley2: So you need it before Dec 15 since you have to organize it, edit it, and proof it

Rush: A fatal voyage…

Matt1: <tin can>

HonoluLou: They shoot horses don’t they?

Rush: They used to.

Phil & Mrs Phil: Right on it Matt.

Rush: They used to trip them, too….

Rush: That’s where I look away.

HonoluLou: and send them to the glue factory, I believe!

Godwinshelley2: Was that actor in CC in London?

Rush: Nice mirror use in this shot.

Rush: Yes!

Rush: He played “Lake.”

Phil & Mrs Phil: Yes GS. As the head stud groom

Rush: The horse groom.

Len Freeman: The actor also plays the pursur in the first Mr. Moto film

Rush: He is also in “Behind That Curtain>’

Rush: I have a similar lamp on my desk.

Rush: Lollipop.

HonoluLou: Ah, didn’t Lollypop place in one of your polls?

Rush: In reality, horses can and do have “companion animals.”

Rush: Lou, you have become the resident expert in our Polls!

Rush: Yes.

Rush: By my count, we have had about 200 polls since 2003.

HonoluLou: I read that somewhere, Rush πŸ™‚

Rush: Lou authored the present poll question! Please make your choice!

Hounder: Did I miss anything? Mom thought her bedroom was taking on water.

Len Freeman: ?!

Godwinshelley2: Flooding?

Rush: Nice tie-in with the splatter sequence earlier.

HonoluLou: SEPTEMBER 2003:
Which Charlie Chan movie animal is your favorite? Winner: Oscar, the lion (Charlie Chan in Honolulu) 38%

Dona: Yes Rush

Louise: Yes another chance for suit splatter

Rush: No, Hounder, no water effects that I can note!

Rush: Yes, Louise!

Hounder: She thought so but there’s no rce and it’

Rush: Lollipop!!!

Louise: Lollipop and Avalanche: not great names for animals!

Hounder: Water source and it isn’t raining

Hounder: She was asleeep

Rush: A dream?

Rush: Winch shoe.

Godwinshelley2: There was a washer flooding event in the back (my) bedroom at my parents home this summer. Actually it was like the plagues of Egypt back there for awhile – water, insects. I was worried that I was the first born.

Rush: πŸ™‚

Dona: lol GS

Louise: GS!!!

HonoluLou: HaHa.

Rush: A domestic disater, GS!

Hounder: I think so. Lol@gs

Rush: “All forgotten, like last year’s bird’s nest.”

Louise: Hah! I just found a bird’s nest in one of my bushes!

Rush: If Mike were here, I could ask him what the music was that we just heard.

Rush: It will soon be forgotten, Louise!

HonoluLou: Rush πŸ™‚

HonoluLou: Yeah, like last years bird nest πŸ™‚

Louise: Cabin boy outfit

Rush: The SLAP!

Rush: Yes.

Godwinshelley2: Wasn’t that “For it was Mary, Mary, plain as any name could be”

HonoluLou: A Happy Coat, I have one!

Rush: Unless one’s name IS Mary!

Godwinshelley2: Wasn’t that the song?

Godwinshelley2: But played slower

Rush: And help, Lee DOES!

Rush: Yes, GS?

Rush: AH! TYSM, then!

Godwinshelley2: Didn’t someone say they wanted to know what music that was they were playing

johnr has joined this room

Rush: I will look for that melody.

Matt1: Hello John!

Dona: Hi John

Louise: some soft focus here

HonoluLou: Hi John

Cdirus: Hi John!

Godwinshelley2: It was from Yankee Doodle Dandy

Rush: JOHN!

Rush: Welcome!

Hounder: Hi john

HonoluLou: Louise, 5 will get you 10, he quits gambling πŸ™‚

HonoluLou: Oh, the old last time promise!

Rush: I’ll wait until 15 before the hour to make the first drawing of the horses.

johnr: johnr

Rush: LOU: πŸ™‚

johnr: Good to be here once again

Rush: I am reading “The Chinese Parrot,” and Charlie Chan in the guise of a Chinese servant, requiring the exaggerated Chinese accent Lee just showed us, bemoans his necessity to do so.

Rush: I am always a sucker for these moonlit ocean scenes!

HonoluLou: That is a great read Rush.

Rush: Yes.

Louise: I like when Lee does these goofy disguises

Rush: I have time to read at times during my Visiting Angels job.

HonoluLou: β€œIf you’ve ever read a mystery story you know that a detective never works so hard as when he’s on vacation. He’s like the postman who goes for a long walk on his day off.”

HonoluLou: The Chinese Parrot

Rush: I actually just read that line in the same story, Lou!

Louise: I have some sarsaparilla tea!

Hounder: Lol@lou

HonoluLou: Italians are psychic…or is that Chinese πŸ™‚

Rush: “Sarsapirilla.”

Rush: BOTH!

Rush: And, a wife of ANY ethnicity!

HonoluLou: Rush, before I forget do you have the name of the student who read with Mr. Hong and I for Earl’s 126th? If so send it to me. T.Y.S.M.

Rush: Was he known to Steve, perhaps?

HonoluLou: Ah, OK.

Rush: Okay…time for the first round of picks!

Louise: ready!

Godwinshelley2: Yahoo

Matt1: Ready!

Rush: Phil and Mrs. Phil will count as one family?

HonoluLou: Where are the names?

Dona: Here we go.

Rush: That way, we have the perfect number for 24 horses. If there is a late arrival, they get MY hores.

Rush: I have them in a felt Chan hat!

Louise: FIRE!

Len Freeman: OK

HonoluLou: Oh, OK.

Rush: I will go by the way our names are listed…

Rush: ou will be getting another in a few minutes…

Godwinshelley2: Len, who is the favorite?

Louise: good question GS

Louise: another gadget

Len Freeman: Anthony Van Dyke and Surprise Baby

Rush: If I have the favorite, I can trade if you like.

Rush: It seems suspicious the Matt and I drew those horses, but I assure that it ia by chance!

Dona: I see no reason to Rush

HonoluLou: Hmmm!

Len Freeman: Luck of the draw (Fix! Fix!)

Rush: Here is one of those displays of technology.

Cdirus: In the Kentucky Derby you never bet on the favorite

Cdirus: They usually don’t do too well

Rush: Well, my horse will probably end up fouling!

Dona: lol

Len Freeman: If Dashing comes in I’ll be upon lots more that 50 Cents!

Rush: :0

Rush: Okay…time for the next draw….

Matt1: Wahoo!

Rush: I will begin at the bottom of our list this time…

Louise: ready, again…

Rush: Len gets: Warning

Godwinshelley2: Lou – is this article written for folks who already know Chan, or for folks new to Chan – to help me understand how much explanation is needed.

HonoluLou: Wow, quick thinking Charlie!

Rush: YES!

Rush: john gets: Stratum Albion

Hounder: BRB dog walk

Godwinshelley2: That looks like a jumble word

Rush: Paul gets: Finche

HonoluLou: GS, mostly though for persons familiar (or wanting to be) with our detective.

Rush: CD gets: Oceanex

Cdirus: OK

Len Freeman: Warning — well the trainer’s named Freeman so that’s a promising note.

Godwinshelley2: ok

johnr: Stratum Albion! Sounds English!

Rush: Phil and Mrs. Phil get: The Chosen One

Rush: Dona gets: Prince of Leogrance

Dona: I get 2 princes. MMMMMM

Rush: Lou gets: Twighlight Paynebt

Cdirus: I got 2 mares

Godwinshelley2: If this were poker, Dona!!

HonoluLou: GS, the audience is John Q. Public, but primarily mystery fans at all levels. Hope that helps. Here’s the link to our previous two Annual Newsletters:

Rush: Hounder gets: Mustajeer

Godwinshelley2: I’ll check them out a little later – too exciting getting our horses right now

HonoluLou: For sure!

Rush: Louise gets: Steel Prince

Louise: lost track of the movie waiting for the horses

Cdirus: Wow, 3 princes in this race!

Louise: Steel Prince: I met him once!

Rush: GS gets: Russian Camelot

Godwinshelley2: Wow – Russian Camelot

Godwinshelley2: Maybe that is why Ashrun

Godwinshelley2: Ohh that sounds mysterious

Matt1: TYSM!

Louise: Great name Matt

Matt1: I like it!

Rush: Rush gets: Vow and declare

HonoluLou: The ole spitball in the face, trick!

Rush: That’s our field for this year!

Cdirus: Last year’s winner Rush

Rush: The race runs about an hour and a half after our Chan

Hounder: They have some great names for horses

Rush: Not me last year.

Matt1: Not me….ever!

Len Freeman: So we’ll wait for the results (where have I heard that before)…

Cdirus: No Vow and Declare

Dona: Me either

Rush: I think I won once a LONG time ago!

Rush: Fireworks!

Hounder: Those horses are amazingly calm with all the kerfuffle going on around then

Rush: That would probably cause havoc with the horses!

Godwinshelley2: Wow – Chan hits a fellow security guy

Cdirus: Nowadays the whole place would be locked down

Dona: I think this is the only movie I remember Charlie socking someone

Rush: Bye-bye laundry truck!

Rush: Dona, I think you are correct.

HonoluLou: Yeah, and he hit a good guy!

Rush: Yes!

Godwinshelley2: For all the right reasons

Godwinshelley2: Of course Chan shoots a bad guy in Behind that Curtain

HonoluLou: True, True, GS!

Rush: “Blackton” guard.

Rush: Play on “Pinkerton”

Rush: Gang is BUSTED.

HonoluLou: Look at all those people! Ah, Helloooo…COVID ya know!

Rush: These scenes shot at Santa Anita race track in Glendale, CA.

Louise: Those were the days…crowds close together

Rush: Sigh….

Rush: They are OFF!

Godwinshelley2: Of course, there were things like “Test your Lung Power” machines in sideshows where folks would blow in them – with no cleaning between

HonoluLou: GS πŸ™‚

Dona: ugh

Godwinshelley2: Hello TB

Rush: Warning: trip line at the finish….

Rush: Last time I looked was more than ten years ago!

HonoluLou: Dirty trick, that!

Louise: Ewwww GS

Cdirus: Rush, King of Leogrances has been scratched

Godwinshelley2: I know – the things we didn’t know back then

PaulM has left this room


Godwinshelley2: Yikes – why was KL scratched?

Matt1: Ugh

Godwinshelley2: I looked up at the wrong time – saw the trip

Rush: rEALLY, cd?

Matt1: Me too

Len Freeman has left this room

Louise: Why would they use such a large dart!


Rush: Cap lock…sorry!

Dona: lol

Rush: Message remains the same, though!

Len Freeman has joined this room

HonoluLou: Rush, how could you!

HonoluLou: πŸ™‚

Godwinshelley2: Looks like KL came up lame after vet checked him out

Cdirus: According to the link I posted 

Rush: We accept it as fact, then.

HonoluLou: I don’t like his attitude!

Rush: He doth over-protest.

Louise: I’m lost and confused…by the movie and the conversation here!

Godwinshelley2: This is a pocket film – isn’t that the second time something was slipped into a pocket

Dona: I’m confussed.

Rush: Suspects are gathered.

Louise: Me too, Dona

Rush: The hammer drops!

Len Freeman: lots of pocket stuffing

Rush: YES!

HonoluLou: LF, Yep.

Rush: “Cold-blooded murder no joke.”

HonoluLou: Contradiction please…the old wet spot gave it away!

Hounder: That’s a wild hunting plaid cape.

Godwinshelley2: Lots of Plaid in Chan films

Godwinshelley2: Especially in the Monograms

Rush: Yes.

Rush: Not to be taken literally….!


Matt1: Great film

Dona: YAY!!!!!

Godwinshelley2: Ugh Chan – that last furniture statement makes me thing of Soylent Green
