Well Mom next time you may do the reading ;-) Love the hat and trench coat look .
Bedtime at Max Collin’s house.
When a man’s partner is killed he’s supposed to do something about it. It doesn’t make any difference what you thought of him. He was your partner and you’re supposed to do something about it.Yup, she’s gonna kill him!
Not quite the detective that Marlowe is, are you, Dad?
Yes, she’s going to remind you to take your hat off indoors.
Is this the same dad from Feb 3? He really wants out of this marriage doesn’t he?
Never read with your back to the door.
If Marlowe is there, can Scrooge be far behind? Oliver good Twist to a story.
Sorry, Frank and Earnest had a Dickens joke and I can’t get off it.
I never thought of using The Big Sleep this way, but it makes a kind of sense.
this is why I wasn’t allowed to read bedtime stories to my son (i kinda gravitated toward H P Lovecraft)
More my speed than Ulysses, if i’m honest…
At least it wasn’t Spilane.
“God, but it was fun! It was the way I liked it. No arguing, no talking to the stupid peasants. I just walked into that room with a tommy gun and shot their guts out. They never thought that there were people like me in this country. They figured us all to be soft as horse manure and just as stupid.” — One Lonely Night
Switch to something more tame for the young one. How about Where the Wild Things Are?
This is the kind of bedtime story Calvin would like!
A funny toon never the less!
Mommy is such a downer.
Did he buy her the clown doll? That’s more sus than the story
Dad needs to stick to the Hardy Boys.
Didja take a peek outta the High Window?
♪ but she just wants to lay in bed all night reading raymond chandler…
Would you prefer a black widow or a tarantula on your angel food cake, sweetie?
