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.

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.
