What's going on at our home!

My last posting told of Linda's brother not doing well and in hospice care.  A couple of days ago we learned he does not have kidney failure.  However, he does have two heart values that are malfunctioning and they do not want to operate.  When he called yesterday, he sounded better than I have heard in months so we are up in the air about what will happen.

Meanwhile, we are progressing with our plans to put our house on the market in the early summer next year and we will purchase a home in the Boise/Meridian areas of Idaho.  Our western families are happy we are coming and we have promised our two sons on the east coast we would be out for two months every summer.

Life goes on!

A lot has been going on in our household

Linda's brother who is 77 is not doing well and is at home with hospice care.  It has been hard for her. Linda is dealing with right knee problems and Mac is still growing in leaps and bounds.  He is currently 8 months old and weighs 60 lbs.  His vet cut his food intake so he doesn't get heavy.  The weather here in New Hampshire has been the hottest weather for the longest period of time, well into the twenty days mark.  I've lived here since 1966 and have never seen this long a period of hot and humid weather.  My eighth book "Blackest of Fridays" came out in May and I have been busy doing book signings at various Barnes and Noble stores and libraries.

Six and a half months

Mac came to us at the age of 3-1/2 months.  He is currently 6-1/2 months.  When he arrived he liked to sit on Linda's lap, he weighed 30 lbs.  He still likes to sit on Linda's lap but weighs 52 lbs.  Here is an update of our puppy.

Mac is clear of parasites

Our six month old lab-mix has had a bout with parasites for the last six weeks.  The second round of medications and I feel the holistic oils I began giving him have cleared him of any parasites.  I learned about the holistic oils from my massage therapist.  She had used it on her dog after three rounds of dewormers didn't work.  The book she showed me about various  holistic oils said this particular one helped remove parasites.  Did it do the trick, I'm not sure, but now our dog is clear of the parasites and is going to be free to mingle with other dogs.

Wow fifty-two pounds

This past Wednesday, Mac had to receive his Lyme disease booster.  He's had a series of the necessary puppy shots and still loves to visit the vet's office.  They tend to spoil him.  On the scale Mac weighed in at 52 lbs.  His first vet visit six weeks ago he was 34, next visit 43, third visit 47.  They keep checking his weight to make sure they are giving him the proper heart worm and flea and tick control products.  I believe he will top out between 80 to 100 lbs.  Our big baby and he's only 5-1/2 months old.

They're Here!

If you followed the Boston Marathon bombing closely and enjoy police thrillers, my eighth book will keep you spell bound.  No there is no marathon bombing in it.  However, there is enough to keep you on the edge of your seat until you finish the 444 page book.  Go to and order an autographed copy.
