Leslie Thomas

Can’t recommend highly enough the books of Leslie Thomas. They are so human and wonderfully comic. Very loving outlook on the world. I’ve read the “Dangerous Davies” series and “The Adventures of Goodnight and Loving”.

Me and President Lincoln

My book just got listed with “The Pianist”, “The Soloist”, and “Angela’s Ashes” as a “Great Book About Extraordinary People” for a library event called “Great Books, Great Libraries”.
Yeah, me and Ben Franklin, Lincoln, and Martin Luther King.

Alexander McCall Smith

Finished the last of the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series last night. What a wonderful set of books. I bought them all and have them lined up where I can see them. Alexander McCall Smith did a great thing putting those out into the world. He’s my hero.

I still haven’t managed to get a photo of Snowflake smiling (will keep trying) but I found these on the internet that show what he/she does.

Fluffy Canine Snowflake Needs Home

This sweet guy/girl showed up on my porch Thursday and needs a nice home.
He/she seems to be a Great Pyrenees, beloved for being a guardian of livestock and home. Not a city dog.
