Can you see that little red ball? Miss Penny speaking, I had so much fun, Susan said it’s called a radish; what kind of name is that? It came to me from the sky, well not quite but from above my head, the kitchen counter. Susan was making a salad, yuck, veggies and things she says are good for you. I’ll stick to chicken and kibble. But this little red ball rolled around the floor and it had a little tail, Susan said it was the root, that I could grab with my teeth and throw it in the air and let it bounce and roll. I accidentally bit into it and what a shock I got, it burned my mouth so I spit it out. It rolled under the cupboard and I let it stay there. It was fun while it lasted. Susan is a little cranky, although she laughed at my radish antics, she had a new cover made for Christmas at lavender Cottage and I think the designer screwed up and now Susan’s worried she won’t have the books ready for Ottawa Book Expo on Oct 20th. However, there is good news she finished the first draft of book three of the Lavender Cottage Series. Doubts and rumours plague Katie and Piers’ romance. Will the love birds marry or part ways forever? Aren’t I naughty teasing you? If it helps, we do get the answer in this book. Susan’s searching for a title; what do you think of  Believing Truth or Lies ? It probably won’t be published until after Christmas, it has to be edited, formatted and a cover designed—I hope she has better luck with this book.
