Colorado author Lynda Hilburn will be here tomorrow! Her vampire series has just been released in the U.K. so we're all celebrating her exciting news. I read The Vampire Shrink when it first came out in the U.S. so I can say with authority that if you like super sexy vampire love stories, you'll really like this novel.
Katie Kitten bit me so hard on the back of the hand on Monday that I had to visit the doctor and get an antibiotic. Since I've had little cat bites and scratches before with no problem, I was surprised to learn that cat bites can be very dangerous. Mine, of course, was a puncture wound, the worst kind. And since it's on the non-meaty side of my hand, it hurts like the devil.
It seems that Katie doesn't like being waked up from a very sound sleep by me attempting to remove her from my lap. I'll go about this a little more carefully in the future.
Speaking of cats, have you ever watched the Mean Kitty videos on You Tube? Try The Mean Kitty Song.
My grapes are ready to pick. I plan to make wine this year. I have Concord grapes, so my wine always tastes like Welch's grape juice. I'm thinking of mixing in another fruit, just for fun. Any suggestions?
What I'm Reading
I'm down to the last few pages of The Ledge, a mountain climbing story that terrifies and inspires. When Jim Davidson and his climbing partner Mike Price were coming down from Mount Ranier, they slipped into a huge crevasse and landed on a tiny ledge part way down. Mike did not survive the fall. The story of Jim's struggle to climb the crevasse wall is nothing short of astounding. The will to live, the strength we can call on when faced with disaster, and the horror of survivor's guilt make this a gripping memoir written by Jim Davidson and Kevin Vaughan. Highly recommended.
I don't know which book from my stacks and shelves I'll read next. So many books, so little time.
