This and That


"This used to be your blanket and pillow? Mine now!"

Muffin's looking a little scruffy in this photo, but I love the pose. She gets groomed on Friday, so I'll have to post a sleeker photo next week.

Anyone in the U.S. have special plans for the Fourth of July weekend? I'm taking a four-day weekend since my sister and her family from New Mexico are planning to be in Lincoln on Friday. We're also having a get-together to share fireworks and a potluck with some of our neighbors on Saturday. I think the actual Fourth might be a little quiet. I'm really excited about the four-day weekend, though.

I hope I get to enjoy the weekend because I have an emergency appointment with the dentist tomorrow morning. I have the absolute worst luck with my teeth. My mom and I brush and floss more than anyone I know, and we have so many problems with our teeth. I'm blaming genetics--and hoping Maya has Herb's teeth. The latest is a broken lower back tooth, and I'm just assuming from the way the tooth looks that this is a root canal/crown procedure in the making. Joy and thrills--pain and lots of money.

Did you have a favorite character, or one that spoke to you the most? Who and why?
The father with the burned hands is the one who stayed with me the most after reading the book.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
