Beginnings

On Sunday we do beginnings, taking a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel, including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker™. How about Their Wildest Dreams, the first book where I got interested in writing about Arizona?

Mackie dreaded the mail. That was new, one of the many new things in her life, none good.

    Good morning all!
    “Captivating caper”. We love alliterations. Sometimes we can even double alliterate.
    For instance, the definition of an alliteration is: several successive similar sounds.
    Grey and rainy here but the heat has broken. Hope everyone has a lovely day.

    Greetings!

    HOH: Your definition made me think of Sylvester the Cat…Suffering succotash!

    RIO! I am going to start reading “Falling” tomorrow. We will have to compare notes for sure.

    ***** ANNOUNCEMENT *****

    I have been collecting pictures for a 2022 edition of The Plunder On! calendar from some of the ones that have been posted on the blog. If you would like, you can also send photos to me via my SDD, or post on this blog no later than October 1st. Once that deadline arrives, I will begin to assemble the calendar.

    With that being said, if you would like to have a copy of the Plunder On! calendar, please let me know by October 1st, so that I may have a final count on how many calendars I will need to order. You can post your request here, or send me an SDD. The cost is $25. Once I receive your payment, I will get the calendar out to you as quickly as possible.

    Enjoy your Sunday!
