#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller

The winners are…

Crystal, Maggie Arnold, and Sam.  Please send your snail mail addresses to me at llmfb@msn.com, and I’ll send each of you a signed book.

I had such a good writing day yesterday–Casey and Walker both amaze me continually–and I’m looking forward to another excellent day.  (All prayed up and ready to roll.)  :)  I’m on a pretty tight schedule this time around, but that’s okay, because I’m loving every minute of this story.  My goal is to finish four chapters each week, and then have Friday, Saturday and Sunday free. 

One of my Goodwill books is “Everyday Grace” by Mary Ann Williamson.  I read a chapter each morning, during my devotional time, and it’s excellent stuff.  (I don’t think it was an accident that I found this particular book when I did.)  :)  It’s a funny thing, how you can try to read a book, and it makes no real sense to you, so you put it aside, only to pick it up months or years later, read it, and feel as though a light bulb has been switched on in your head!

Yesterday I cooked corned beef and cabbage and Wendy and Jeremy joined me for supper–like me, they love the stuff!–and Jenni was here, too, though she brought a Subway sandwich.  :)  For some weird reason, nobody on the Triple L crew seems to like this dish except me.

Yorkie Bernice got a trim, courtesy of Jeremy.  She’s such a cutie and she’s doing better these days–not so gimpy.  She’s 12, but still pretty perky if her hip isn’t hurting.  (I can identify.)  Like Tom T. Hall, I love “old dogs and children and watermelon (shiraz) wine.”

Walker adopted a dog in yesterday’s chapter–said it resembled a “wad of dryer lint with legs and eyeballs.” 

Wish I’d thought of that.  :)

    Please go to website for Springtime, Inc. for herbal remedies that will help the Yorkie with her hip problems – it has worked for many animals in the past – thanks!!

Working on my latest as well, soon too be published and is in the hands of publisher. I have read every book you have wriiten, I believe. Once I discovered one of your books, I couldn’t stop until I read them all. Enjoy this day it is beautiful, but chilly here. Linda

    Just finished the Mojo series and loved it, but is it me and I need to be hit over the head to know if Tucker will come back. Maybe it’s wishful thinking. Will there ever be more in the series?
    I’m into the McKettricks now and am enjoying them. So thanks for the good read and have a great day :wink:

    I love the dogs in your stories. The cats too, but especially the dogs. We have three in our house. My son has a mini doxie named Tiger Lily. She’s grumpy and getting old but has the most soulful eyes and likes nothing in the world as much as snuggling up in a warm lap. My daughter has a Pomeranian who is the most joyous dog I’ve ever known in a long history of dogs. He is just beside himself with glee whenever we come home. He hops into any available lap and looks at you like there never was a human more important or more worthy of his devotion. I have a Border Collie that my family bought for me who is incredibly smart and loyal and herds everything from the other dogs to the shoes not stowed away in the closets. He is my constant companion even resting on the rug when I take a shower and sleeping with his head on the other pillow in my king size bed. Since I don’t have a Slade Barlow or Hutch Carmody to snuggle with, he is the next best thing. When I read your books I feel guilty for not providing a home to a homeless pet. I love that you call attention to the need for good homes for animals that need our love and protection. When I was a child we had a dog from a shelter who had been abused. She was a Cocker Spaniel and mystery dog mix who was terrified of loud noises. She was such a loveable dog. Every night she would tirelessly follow me up the stairs and lay beside me until I went to sleep each night of my childhood as if it were his special job. She lived to be 18. I can’t really remember a time without a dog in my life. I also love cats and my Fritz and Abby, both American shorthair orange striped cats, died this past year and a half at the ages of 21 and 22 respectfully. They were members of the family. I look forward to meeting each of your animal characters almost as much as the human ones.
