It means a great deal to me. It's lonely sometimes writing in this little room. Not lonely in that I always have a hound to hug at the ready. Lonely in that I'm writing this book and little stories and sometimes I wonder who the heck I think I am!!!
That's why your lovely, kind words made me smile a bit.
So. It was time to do the drawing for the give away of Mama Pajama Tells A Story. I asked Delia if she would oversee the procedure, and testify that it was on the up and up.
Hmmmm. I'll take that as a NO.
Then I asked Swede William. Due to Lindy Loo's seriously seductive state, I thought maybe he could use a distraction.
I'm pretty sure he said, "Oh yes, Dear Servant. I'd just LOVE to help out any way I can!"

I love your blog and check every day for new stories. I've laughed and cried with you, and now feel we're practically related! Thanks for sharing your whippets with us.
This is fun! I don't know Carolyn in Tulsa and I didn't know you were reading!!! Cool beans! So please email me your address and how you would like me to sign the book and I'll get it on it's way to you!
Thank you all again for hanging in there with me this year. Sunday was my sister Martha's birthday. Her doctors just smile and shake their heads. No one dreamed she would celebrate this birthday. But she did, and she did in her own home. She is my hero. She is facing some tough, tough concepts: her oncologist has told her there will be no further treatment. My job - as I see it - is (1) to listen to her (really listen) and (2) to make her laugh. So far I've been able to do both, with the help of the whippets. The story of William to the Rescue When I Misplaced Lindy Loo made her snort.
