On Sunday we do beginnings, taking a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel, including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker™. As a kind of a shout out to Roger Federer, let’s do a book where tennis plays a role. There are a few, including The Tutor, Lights Out, Thereby Hangs a Tail, and – coming next summer! Mrs. Plansky’s Revenge. And there’s this one, A Perfect Crime:

Thursday, the best day of the week – the day of all days that Francie was predisposed to say yes. But here in the artist’s studio, with its view of the Dorchester gas tank superimposed on the harbor beyond, she couldn’t bring herself to do it. The problem was she hated the paintings.

    Another beginning that pulls you right in.

    RIO! My pleasure to post your photos. The Curly Tail Cottage…Snorkel…I love that name! Your Friend made a great choice with the colors, if I do say so myself. It really makes the trim pop, and I think a black door is a very sleek look. Makes the Curly Tail look a little like a craftsman house. Sounds like the team that did the job really went above and beyond with the work they did.

    Create a good day!

    OFA is a master of the hook.

    Rio: The Curly Tail Cottage looks an awful lot like Mother Jail. You must of had the same architect. We love the color so much so that we gave up getting it out of Howie’s fur. Our Lady would not stand for this…so therefore, she gave Howie a haircut.

    Happy Rosh Hashanah to all.

    It is also World Largest Pet Walk day.

    Hat tip to our pharmacists and research administrators.

    Now I think I’ll go out and get a quesadilla, then maybe have some butterbrot. Sorry, I’m allergic to lobster.

    And being a daughter, today is my day.

    It’s buttered bread. Not really healthy for little puggies or dogs in general. But I suppose a little bite couldn’t hurt.
