Holiday Weekend!

How nice! And in my mind the start of the holiday season. Speaking of which (just supposing there’s someone on your list who likes to read) here’s a snippet from It’s A Wonderful Woof, coming Oct. 19, meaning we’re still in the eligibility period for Macmillan’s promotion.

“Does Christmas have some undermining affect on the rational mind?” Bernie said. “Not necessarily a bad thing, maybe even a rebalancing.”

He fumbled under his seat, perhaps forgetting that he’d fumbled in the very same way quite recently, coming up with nada, cigarette-wise, not even a half-crushed stub, which was exactly what went down now. As for what he was talking about, I was hoping it was over, although I’d never allow myself to have a thought like that. Bernie could talk about whatever he wanted, and anyone who tried to stop him, including me, would have to deal with me! And in no uncertain terms!

Bernie glanced my way. “What’s up?”

Nothing. Nothing was up.

“That was one strange bark,” he said.

Bark? I’d heard no bark.

    I can’t wait to read the new book.

    My next-door neighbor tippy tapped on my door last night. It turns out that Mr. Big has been scoring an extra breakfast and dinner from her when she lays out food for a stray that she feeds. She said that he was “too chubby to be a stray, but I thought I would track down its owner.“

    Color me MORTIFIED!
    Color Mr. Big EXTRA FATSO … definitely not just “chubby”
