Living with a children's author isn't as easy as it looks!


We’ve have had some sunshine come into our blog lately!  Look how happy I am…

Yes, that’s my happy face!

First, we received the You Make Me Shine Award from our friend Bassa, our favorite Caucasian Shepherd Dog.  She has a really cool blog and talks about her view of the world in exotic Tbilisi, in The Republic of Georgia.  Thanks, Bassa and Tall Person!  You make me shine, too! 

More shining happiness came from our friend AngelsWhisper who sent us the Sunshine Award.  AngelsWhisper has a couple of snarky cats.  I love snarky, but I don’t love cats.  I do love the comments AngelsWhisper leaves on our blog.  Thanks, AngelsWhisper, you’re fun.  Our Sunshine Award answers are here.

Mom had some sunny things happen, too.  She was featured on the blog of a crafty artist named Autumn, who has a blog and a business called BiblioBags.  Not only did Autumn talk some about Mom, but she also made an awesome purse out of Mom’s book, Keep Your Ear on the Ball.  I hope Mom puts gum in there, soon.  I’m pretty sure I can squeeze my bony little head in and get some.

Mom also sent a story to her new best friends at Rate Your Story, and her story got a score of two.  TWO!  That’s one away from ONE, which is the best score.  Mom loves having a two, because now she can fix up the story a little more, talk about it with her writing group named DavidLaurieandOtherDavid, and send it out to some publishers.  Then we can wait for the mailman to bring us a happy letter.  I don’t love the mailman, but I do love happy letters and sunshine.

    • Thanks, Collies and Chuck. Mom said if she even had ONE more of me she’d start drinking. I’m afraid of my water bowl, so I would NOT start drinking, even if there were a million more of me.

      Love and licks,

  13. […] I have never had gum and Mom says I never will, but I’m pretty sure I love it. Gum hides in Mom’s purse sometimes and once in a while it’s in the grocery bag, or in drawers that I can’t […]
