The Word Project Steps Out

I am so excited- my book, "The Word Project: Odd & Obscure Words- Illustrated" has been featured on the blog: Brain Pickings! I am so chuffed about it that I am having a cup of tea (decaf Earl Grey) and some toast (Rye.) Some folks just know how to live.

Bundle Boy

Bundle Boy (1995-2011) 
My dear old boy, Bundle, died this morning at 2:20. He was a good cat and I will miss him. When I lost the house, etc. I had to have his 2 fellow cats, Pixel and Twyla, put down. They were both old and had a myriad of problems and the upheaval of the move was very hard on them. So my dear boy was the only cat who came with me and helped sustain me during the past 3 and a half years I have lived hereHe helped keep my heart open when all I wanted to do was shut down.
He was a good boy and struggled mightily against the ravages of time. As much as I will miss him I am glad he no longer has to struggle so.
