Our roses have just begun to bloom–no, that picture was from last year. There’s another month to go before peak blossom time but I can’t wait. This year promises to be a glorious blooming frenzy (do blossoms frenzy?). As of last Friday the laptop gurus said my computer was FIXED and being shipped home so by the time you read this, I hope to have the laptop back. That means I can sit outside on the patio, amidst all the bloom-icity, while continuing the draft of the next thriller. Yeee-haw!
I want to encourage y’all to subscribe (if you haven’t already) to my PET PEEVES newsletter. There’ll be some extreee-spashun news in the middle of April and it will be announced there first. 🙂
Remember that tonight (and EVERY Monday night!) you can listen and call in with your pet questions on CAT CRAZY radio show.
Monday Mentions is the mash-up-day of all the neato-torpedo writer links and videos, pet schtuff and bling and writer-icity crappiocca collected over the past week. Check out the SQUEEE! cute pet-astic videos at the bottom, too. For new followers to the blog, welcome! and you can expect more cat and dog specific schtuff later in the week on Wednesday and Friday.
