More Good News!!!

Mojo is flying high today. Her book, “Deadly Gamble”, is a finalist for the coveted RITA award from Romance Writers of America!

Me, I’m flying high, too. The workmen are here to lay the new floors, and Bernice, Sadie and I still haven’t left for the lake. This place will be a regular beehive of activity in the next half hour, so it’s time for us to hit the road.

Tomorrow, notes from the lake.

Home Sweet Home(s)

As much as I love to travel, it’s so good to be home. The dogs and I will be moving to the lake house on Sunday afternoon, as crews are coming to install hardwood floors in the living room, dining room, and upstairs hallway. Yorkie Bernice and I do not function well around saws and nail guns, so we’re out of here. The ‘girls’ love the lake–sleeping in their canoe beds, sniffing around the pool, pressing wet noses against the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the lake. Last time we visited, Bernice trotted happily across the pool cover without even making a dent. Sadie, the porky Beagle, tried to do the same and got stuck. Fortunately, the cover held, but Say-Say was discombuberated, to say the least. Niece/assistant Jenni had to perform a belly-flat rescue.

Next week: tales from Lake Linda.
