Hello from Florida. What a month this has been. The weather turned warm and our pool is now active again.
As you can see, my friends in the picture are smiling big. The little lady on the right is Irene Curran, age 91, who is the sweetheart of Port Charlotte. What a great lady she is and a very good friend.
Jayne Spofford on my right is a lovely lady who tap dances. Her energy level goes on forever. When we dance, I try not to stand to close to her for she is so enthusiastic that my steps seem sluggish compared to hers. How I wish I had that much energy. Jayne is a very good friend who has edited some of my work and is a strong supporter of my writing. Dance on, Jayne.
This month I am pushing forward with my private investigator, Dan Mulligan on my next novel, WHITE POWDER. It is beginning to fall into place and the mystery is getting quite involved. Hopefully, I will have the story finished by September and then on its way to an agent.
The sad news this month is that we lost our wonderful rottweiller, Queenie. She was actually a big wuss who thought herself a Chihuahua. But at 122 pounds, there is nothing she could crawl under to hide that big body and sitting in my lap was out of the question, even though she tired many times. Now she is running the field of dreams with others like her.
It's time to dash to a party.
Stop by again and join me in reading. Grab a book, settle back, and enjoy the day. Easter is here and it's a beautiful time. See you all next month.

Summer is here
The humidity and warm mornings spell summer here in Florida. Flowers are blooming as well as the weeds. The roses outside the pool screen are beautiful as are the orchids on my lanai. The hard part is staying up with the weeds and caring for the pool---both summertime jobs that keep me busy several days of the week. So a lovely swim in the pool helps to cool down the body after a good job of caring for the yard.
The mockingbirds are back, flitting about the trees, singing a medley of songs. They are quite entertaining. I love to listen to them.
So grab yourself a good book and pour a tall glass of iced tea. What, you don't have a great book to read? Look no further.
