Have you heard of ‘burrs’ or perhaps I should say felt burrs, Miss Penny speaking? They are little round things covered in hooks, the seeds of the Burdock plant, and they stick to everything including me. During our walk the other day I got covered in them. I had one hanging from my face, several in my paws. Susan pulls them out and that stings a bit, but I know it’s for the best. But, we missed one. I was in agony with this thing digging into my tummy. It twisted into my fur so the fur pulled every time I moved and the little hooks of the burr dug into my skin. I hardly had a wink of sleep as it was morning before Susan found it. She had to cut it out. Oh, what a relief! Can you guess what happened next? Yep, the groomers! Kind of like adding insult to injury. Now, I’m cold, I had a lovely long coat, but it was getting mattered and those burrs were a problem. Although I say it myself, I look glamorous. Susan’s catching up with admin work and getting ready for the Small Press Book Fair, signings to finish the year off.
Remembrance Day! I love history but not always the effect it has on people. Researching WW1 for Prelude to Sophie’s War I became painfully aware of the stubbornness of powerful men that took so many lives, not just soldiers but innocent Londoners. Prelude to Sophie’s War tells of those innocent lives changed forever https://books2read.com/u/mgG0M0
