Good morning! Ready to get back to the real world? I am. Holidays are too exhausting!

If you didn’t read John Grogan’s piece in yesterday’s PARADE magazine, you have to dig it out and read it. (Or just click here: I found a link).
(You may recall–Grogan is the author of MARLEY AND ME, a wonderful movie and an even better book.) He told the story of how his family moved and he went back to the old house and dug up Marley, then re-buried him in his family’s current home . . . which, incidentally, the success of the Marley projects made possible.
Maybe it’s because we’re trying to move that the story struck me, but I found myself blubbering in my breakfast cereal again. I don’t like weeping at breakfast, it makes my cereal taste funny. But it’s a great article, and well worth reading.
(For the record, I have Justus and Sadie in urns. Where I go, they go.)
Wanted to tell you today about Cheryl Wyatt’s latest book, A SOLDIER’S DEVOTION. If you like inspirational romance, I think you’ll like this one!


ISBN-10: 0373875754 Publisher: Steeple Hill (January 1, 2010)

U.S. Air Force pararescue jumper Vince Reardon was headed to a lifesaving mission. Until a too-pretty lawyer crashed her fancy car into his motorcycle—sidelining him for two weeks. Vince can barely accept Valentina Russo’s heartfelt apologies. Ever since his brother was wrongly convicted—and killed in prison—Vince has lost respect for lawyers. But wait—is that Val volunteering at his refuge for underprivileged kids? If Vince isn’t careful, this lady of the law might just earn his respect and his heart.


Born Valentine’s Day on a naval base, Cheryl Wyatt writes military and rescue romance. Her Steeple Hill debuts earned RT Top Picks plus #1 and #4 on eHarlequin’s Top 10 Most-Blogged-About-Books, lists including NYT Bestsellers. She is a Reviewers Choice Award Nominee.


Have a great back-to-work day!

    I was just glad to know the dog was buried in a bag!

    My kids’ piano teacher’s little dog finally died of old age, and she had him freeze-dried and stuffed. He’s sitting on her bed. That’s way too weird for me!

    Linda, that’s hilarious about the dog! LOL. I had to retype this post because I thought your name was Mocha for a moment. I knew someone once with that name. Glad you stopped by.

    Angie, thank you!
