Rush: Better late than….

Rich-Maine: Yes mda…..he has one suit!

Godwinshelley2: If you have a wife and 14 kids (with some in college) you don’t buy a lot of new suits

Rush: I am lost without Matt, I guess!

mda19083: yes gs

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: I’m wearing my 1937 suit as we speak. Fox is wearing 1937 fur. We’re ready for Willkie.

mda19083: fox fur angel?

Nothere: You are here Rush. Not that I’d know :-" :-"

Rush: TYSM!

Rich-Maine: Does government pay for his assistant?

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Imagine being an ordinary employee at that bank, & after noticing for years you could see the contents of the safe without opening it, you come down with, well—

Rush: Never joke about bank robbery in a bank….especially with a guard around!

Rush: This is my favorite Monogram Chan movie.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: President Willkie?

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: I

Nothere: Just quietly put a note on the safe. Please do not lock tongight.

Louise: Why Rush?

Rush: It’s got just about everything monogram has to offer!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: I’d like to see Charlie in a barbershop-quartet outfit, with striped suit & straw hat. And the cane, of course.

Rush: Good flashbacks….gimmicks….a “noirish” use of shadows….

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Damn.

Louise: Nice lighting on CC

Rush: YES!

mda19083: rafferty dunham and black – sounds like a law firm

Godwinshelley2: My secretary moonlights as a Drum Majorette

Louise: I can’t decide what to call the front of her dress

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: She looks like a majorette in that dress.

Nothere: With a baton?

Phil: Now let me in the danged safety deposit room.

Godwinshelley2: Yes

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Hey, we all noticed that!

Louise: Majorette it is!

Rich-Maine: Yes she dances nightly in the vault

Rush: This one also has a case that has its beginnings back in the past…

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Ah-HA.

Rush: Yes, Rich!

mda19083: that’s some vault

Nothere: Now thats a door.

mda19083: great minds think alike nt

Nothere: I bow to Mda’s superior and first comment.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Hope Same. Didn’t she write that novel about the flyboy and the majorette?

Rush: Indeed!

HonoluLou: This may be why he only made a couple more movies!

Phil: Radium is extraordinarily deadly.

mda19083: age before beauty

Rich-Maine: Everybody comes to Joe’s

Rush: Seems so!

Hounder: I know it is deadly internally

mda19083: eat at joe’s and get gas

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Thanks for the health tip, Phil. I’ll keep out of the bank.

Louise: That wallpaper looks like the front of the majorette outfit

Nothere: Hey they did remember Charlie is a cop.

HonoluLou: Louise…brilliant observation!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Some gunsel’s gonna reach into that box and—

mda19083: this jukebox thing is odd

Rush: We can continue the Biggers birthday celebration through next week, as it actually fell right between two Mondays….!

mda19083: in my humble opinion

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: The photography here is DEFINITELY more mature, DEFINITELY headed into the noir. Wish the series had gone longer!

Rush: Yes, MDA.

Nothere: Uh oh. Mrs. Chan has competition. At least till Charlie mentions the 14 kids.

Louise: Yes, the noir lighting is fab

Rich-Maine: Yes far better quality

Phil: Hey uh..there’s a guy..with a gun..

Phil: Behind YOU!

mda19083: mrs bigger had a baby – who is bigger – mrs bigger or mrs bigger’s baby?

Rush: It is odd in that the “DJ” sees the customers but the customers can only hear her.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Chum.

Louise: I made popcorn again…goes well with noir lighting

HonoluLou: Earl would have been 138, August 26th!

Rush: All that technology just so she can see the person requesting the music.

Rich-Maine: A magic device rush

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: I’ll fake a cake!

Rush: Yes!

Phil: Well I’ll be 64 on the 29th!

Rich-Maine: Third degree!

Nothere: And somehow still plays the wrong record.

Rush: And he left us far too early.

HonoluLou: Your almost halfway there Phil.

mda19083: party at phil’s on the 29th

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Phil: Happy birthday, youngster!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: 8/29 is 55th anniversary of Beatles’ last live show.

Phil: I still feel pretty young – but isn’t that what we all say?


Nothere: So what kind of cake do you want Phil?

Hounder: Happy birthday phil

Rush: True, Phil!

Phil: Yellow cake, buttercreme icing. Flavor’s up to you.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: He’s got the fearful shuffles.

mda19083: happy birthday phil

Phil: Thanks all. Thanks Lou and MDA.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: She bought a pie in that hat the day before. Ate the pie. Wore the pan.

Hounder: Lol@angel


Rich-Maine: Oh yes waxy!

mda19083: yes rush!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth:wizard: :wizard: :wizard:

Phil: That hat is matched only by the crow worn at dinner in CC in London.

Rush: CC plays matchmaker here!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: You and CC will stand for that day at the apex of sartorial splendour, with a “u”.

Rush: She has a “protective mesh”

Rich-Maine: A 3 way?

Nothere: Chrlie is always playing match maker.

HonoluLou: Oh, will you marry me.

Phil: WHOA! – Rich

Rush: 🙂

Phil: Getting crazy in here tonight.

Nothere: Hey Dan. Do you want to marry Lou?

DanVenture: Lou?

Louise: Which Lou???

Phil: Good to see you DV.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Louise, your disguise won’t hold up long in here.

DanVenture: Guess I need to get caught up on the chat!

Louise: Phil is a mere baby

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: No you turn! You sit down!

Hounder: Hi dan

Phil: ???? I think I said something about 64th – on the 29th.

Rush: The “NO U-TURN” running gag…

mda19083: who’s on first

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Phil’s youth radiates all the way here.

Louise: dog house for the boys

DanVenture: Woah! 50!! Egads, is like this an senior moment or what??

Phil: Just call me Radiator

Nothere: Radiator

Phil: Get your hands off me dude!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: “Egads” reveal venerability. Expect Okey-Doke next.

Rich-Maine: Sewers!

Godwinshelley2: The Smile comment ALMOST makes up for his FURNITURE saying about women.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: BB and Young Chan are so hip.

Phil: Hmmm they’re recording artists.

Rush: Talking their way out of the bank!

HonoluLou: Hands off!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: A hard-boiled Chinee!

HonoluLou: Wow! I’m really lagging here. Sorry.

Nothere: Let’s go to the sewer! Uhm nah.

Louise: COMP LETE Laundry is confusing

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: sHE’S HIP.

Nothere: Unlike a pants only laundry?

Rush: Bowery Boys routine here…

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: I only see half a laundry.

Rich-Maine: Sewer connecting to laundry……what a concept

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Notty—walk up, save 2 pairs of pants.

Phil: Kinda lame.

HonoluLou: Pretty sneaky…not!

HonoluLou: Good thing the room is soundproof.

Rush: I just tested a “publish” at Tripod which hosts our Website….no luck!

Phil: Let’s make a little bit more noise so the woman out front can hear us.

Rush: It has been doing that since yeasterday, and I don’t know what’s going on.

Nothere: How weird is their life when this is like the 12th secret passage they found?

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: It’s heavy water. That’s why it’s down there.

Rush: Ther site may look the same for a while….

Godwinshelley2: Maybe time to call their IT dept

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: “Knew” in the Biblical sense?

Rush: I sent a request to them yesterday, and i will see if and what the answer is.

Phil: Did you clear your cache Rush?

HonoluLou: I’d hate to be the camera man, riding in the boat to film them.

Rush: I think that all is on very shakey ground right now!

Phil: All of what Rush?

Rush: Phil, how does one do that, please?

Godwinshelley2: poor BB – always the corpse magnet

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Clara Bow was in IT. In her shop she was THE IT girl.

HonoluLou: Yuk!

Rush: Internet Explorer, the ONLY browser that really works with Tripod is leaving us in June.

Rush: After that…?

Rich-Maine: Rush, try using different browser.

mda19083: let’s play tag – you’re IT

Godwinshelley2: So what is Tripod doing?

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: You mean “June” 10 months hence?

Rush: I have tried others, and the only way to fully edit is through HTML.

Rush: Yes, Angel.

Phil: Give me a second Rush.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Whatever shall we do?

Rich-Maine: I use Wix to host our site.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: If only there WAS a second Rush!

Rush: I am searching for alternatives, but it might mean rebuilding everything basically from scratch.

Hounder: How disappointing rush

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: We hate scratch.

Louise: I use Word Press for all my websites. Excellent program and hosting.

Godwinshelley2: That’s the problem with software – it is never stable – always changing

Rush: We have accumulated nearly 1,000 pages of material here over 20 years.

Rush: Yes, Louise!

Rich-Maine: Wow Rush!

Rush: We might go there.

HonoluLou: I agree Louise. Rush, my site it WordPress, too.

mda19083: connect the dots

Louise: As I have said before Rush, if it is exposted it can be imported into a new program.

Hounder: Oh no rush so much work to redo or be lost.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Rush, can you download it & archive, maybe actually print? I would hate to have our Museum go poof.

Rush: Do you know if we would be able to transfer what we have here…over to WordPress?

Louise: I have about 15 websites on WordPress

Nothere: <Tin Can> Late but not as llateas the body.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: They oughta call her “sister” at some point. It’s not a movie till somebody calls a moll “sister”.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Lovely, Rita.

Louise: True, wax

Hounder: I have no suggestions. Only gratitude for the work you have done and continue to do for us.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Those doity rats are cleaning up in that laundry.

HonoluLou: Rush, no idea, but worth asking.

Rush: I am trying to work with my sister-in-law on this as well, when she has the time.

Nothere: Listen up you mugs.

Rush: True, Lou!

Louise: Yes, Rush it can be done and WrdPress has lots of tuturials and lots of help too.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Zuckerberg would say “Partly Insane”.

Rush: HM! Maybe you and I can talk again on this, Louise!

Phil: Rush I’m running Firefox and it looks rather convoluted to try to talk you through the process for IE.

Rich-Maine: 2 doors!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: “Do not sell bearskin before shooting bare”. Might need to wear bearskin.

Rush: I know you started me off a couple years ago…but life got busy!

Rush: “Thank you Mr. Chan….Thank you VERY much!”

Louise: Alas life gets in the way of website production!

Rush: Indeed!

Nothere: Well you ccan sell the bear skin first. But you better have a gun and know where to find a bear first.

Rush: And Tripod has been so easy to use for someone like me!

mda19083: life is what happens when you are making other plans

Rich-Maine: White suit climbing into sewer but not a mark on him!

Rush: Yes, MDA! Apt quote!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: We’re going to the mountains. Ask if we’re gonna hunt bare.

Rush: 🙂

mda19083: john lennon – i believe

Louise: So I also do the website for our local arts center and they have it designed on Weebly. Awful program but I have been making it work by tweaking what it can do. It is fun.

Rush: It was.

Nothere: Dirt daring to touch Chan;’s suit? It would be arrested.

Rich-Maine: I hope not bare…..

mda19083: the majorette

Rush: Yes, NT!

Rich-Maine: Yes NT, not a speck

DanVenture: FWIW: I see there’s a service to migrate sites from Tripod to WordPress:

Louise: “Police do not read Emily Post.” You have to be of a certain age to understand that.

Rich-Maine: Aha Dan!

Louise: Cool Dan! I would chip in to pay for that!

Rich-Maine: Back to Joe’s

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Notty, would it were so simple. The soap moguls have been dogging us with the false paradigm of textile rehabilitationism. Washing Machine wants its payoffs. No one will ARREST dirt, no one.

mda19083: i recommend the beef stew

Rush: TYSM, DV!!!!

Rich-Maine: Stew is still fresh!

Rush: I just took a peek!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: mda: make ours a double. A double-dog double.

Rush: Masterful find!!!!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Strange place for music.

Rush: I will definitely look into this!

Hounder: Nice find dan!

mda19083: juke box hero

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Maybe you can do migration in Fall, Rush?

Louise: If you do it Rush, please let us know so we can all help pay for it. Right gang?

Godwinshelley2: yes

mda19083: yes – count me in

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: A FINE retort!

HonoluLou: Louise, correct on my account.

Phil: Yeah, I’d be willing to donate.

Rich-Maine: Absolutely! Set up a PayPal!

Nothere: Got stars in his eyes.

Godwinshelley2: even if we have to put on a show to come up with dough

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: DASS RIGHT, Louise! Even if Fox must sell fur!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: My uncle lived in Hidden Spring.

mda19083: tetragene?

Louise: I could sell my Chan DVDs…wait, no, that would defeat the purpose!

Phil: Better hope it’s not boobytrapped.

mda19083: it’s alexa

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Louise, NO! I’ll sell my watch to buy you a comb, so you don’t have to comb the ads for a buyer or Boyer!!

DanVenture: Happy to contribute as well.

Louise: GS: we put on a show every week!

Hounder: I’ll help some

Nothere: Ah yes the bookcase secret passage. Are there any bookcases withouit one, or do they cost extra?

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Something wrong with that jukebox business model.

Godwinshelley2: It made me think of the Andy Hardy films – they always put on a show for cash

Rush: NT: 🙂

Louise: yes GS exactly what I thought

mda19083: yes gs – we can put on a show

Louise: I love our Chan family

Rush: CC should have cautioned FIRST, then mention pressing the button!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: I’ve got it, Mickey / Ethel !!! Let’s do a show!!

Nothere: I can tell jokes. And not just my face.

HonoluLou: So nobody has pressed the return since the last guy?

Godwinshelley2: Yes Rush – i expected an “oops – too late – I pushed it

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Rush, good catch! But they ALWAYS do that!

Phil: This chick thinks she can just walk out on CC.

Rush: DV…you made my night!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: We thought he’d take off his wingtips & press button with toe.

HonoluLou: Rush, I sent you an email in January on migrating to WordPress. I’ll send it again if you like?

Hounder: Ok i accidentally hit the emotional button. Now how do I make the go away?


mda19083: NT 🙂

Rush: Yes, GS!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: H: Click anywhere outside the emoji box.

Rush: Please do, Lou!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Gimme a big brown stew & a handful of pudding. And a napkin.

HonoluLou: 10-4, Mr. Glick 🙂

Hounder: Thanks angel. Compueters are not my friend

DanVenture: You can see how many friends you have here, Rush!

Phil: And a cup of joe.

Rush: I must have missed that email…which does not surprise me!

Louise: Yes Dan

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Joe Java, comin’ up!

Rush: January was an INSANE month!

Louise:wizard: :wizard: :wizard: It’s a magical group

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: “Pentamite”? What, they’re horning in/out on Tetragene? I got stock i Tetragene! What gives?

Rush: Need a brake job, Mr. Chan…

Godwinshelley2: Why was Charlie DRIVING the chauffeur

Rush: That’;s the first time we see CC driving since “The Black camel” I believe!

Phil: Tetragene, as you may remember, is a deadly gas.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: But a gas, gas, gas!

mda19083: 🙂

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Bank prexy suffering a REAL Seizure.

Rush: Recalls a ‘Stones song, Angel…

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: TYSM

Rich-Maine: Government in charge of vault….but my pearls!

Nothere: Sorry Angel but Tetragine is old hat. Pentamite is the in thing.

Godwinshelley2: jumping jack flas

Rush: The radium test device…

Godwinshelley2: flash

Phil: Yeah Charlie’s really throwing his weight around on this one.

Rush: Yep!

HonoluLou: Rush, I just sent it’s called Castillo for migrating from ANY site to wordpress. Maybe Louise can help as she seems very knowledgable? Why don’t you forward the email to her. Louise, sorry for taking that liberty.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Notty! What am i going to do with all this Tetragene? Let it air out?

Rich-Maine: Hold your breath waxy!

mda19083: tetragene? i prefer mapuchari

Rush: Yes, Lou, and I’ll get it out to my wife’s sister, too. She owns a website design company.

HonoluLou: Oops, called Callisto (not Castillo)

Phil: Put it in a balloon, take a deep breath of it and see if your voice sounds funny.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Funnier than now?

Rich-Maine: 🙂

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Funny how? Do i amuse you?

mda19083: 🙂

Phil: No..tell do I amuse you?

Rush: If I can’t make changes to this site for next week…I will email any info for our movie,, etc.

Nothere: Uhm Yeah sure. You amuse us all Angel. No one finds you annoying.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: All Good Fellows here, even the dames!

Rush: If you are not on our email list, please send a message to:

Louise: HonoluLou: take all the liberties you want! I am happy to help.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Notty—WAIT—Was that the Hindenburg i heard?

Phil: La cosa nostra

Rush: Pentalite

Rush: That’ll wreck the plumbing!

Godwinshelley2: If this was a serial, the explosion would have been – tune in next week

Rich-Maine: Big bang theory

Rush: Yes, GS!!!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: I will agree, Pentalite is a blast. A coming thing for our new, dynamic postwar era. Send me 2 boxes, i’ll try it.

Phil: Being in a sewer that blast wave would have blown their eardrums WAY out.

Rich-Maine: Poor Tommy

Rush: Tommy and BB are certainly taking one for the Chan team in this one!

mda19083: oh no

Nothere: Charlie Chan in 15 chapters of Adenture and Excitment.

Phil: Oh they’re in the poop now.

Rich-Maine: Trapped like rats

Rush: 🙂

Rush: Yes.

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Supervisor was brought to States in Operation Paperclip. Ran communications in region of Stalag 13.

Rush: BB takes this really well.

Rich-Maine: She knows code!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: “Mysterious” tube? At THIS point?

Godwinshelley2: Wow – must have been shorthand morse code

Rush: CC just sent out a LENGTHY message!

HonoluLou: Louise, thank you. I just forwarded Rush an email from Jane Friedman, back in January. However, if you want to copy and paste here’s the link:

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Phil: If so, Beano could be tossed down.

Rich-Maine: Could he be briefed!

HonoluLou[9b7aed8500] (for Louise)

Rush: I would just say: “SOS”!!!!

Phil: Well if I was trapped in a sewer I can assure you beano WOULD BE appropriate!

Louise: Cool HL

Rich-Maine: They charge by the word!

wax angel w/wax fox teeth: Rich: Briefed? Or boxered?

Godwinshelley2: I was told that braille was alot like shorthand – cutting out unnecessary letters – wonder if morse code was like that
