As you know I’m a dog, sort of and when it suits me, Miss Penny speaking. Now, I’m a smart dog, we all know that. I can’t talk, not yet at least, but one day I’ll surprise Susan and answer her. Hee! Wouldn’t that be fun? Okay, back to my point. It’s the word zoom that has me confused. I am known to zoom around the park, zoom up a tree following squirrels, well not quite I get stuck at the bottom. The cars zoom by on Carling Avenue and Susan zooms into me when she’s taking pictures. Here’s my question, how can Susan have a zoom meeting? That’s what she’s doing today, having a Zoom meeting with the Historical Writing Ladies. No, they don’t zoom down the road nor do they zoom in the park and they certainly don’t chase squirrels up a tree; mind you, there’s a thought, they are taller than me and might catch a squirrel. I can’t say I’ve ever seen Susan climb a tree. However, pictures are involved because their pictures appear on Susan’s laptop; moving talking pictures. Now, this is very disconcerting. I know these ladies; they come to the house and drink tea, eat cakes and talk about writing, which involves petting me and sharing the cake with me. Do you see what I’m saying? If they are inside Susan’s laptop, Zooming, I can hear them but I don’t get petted and I don’t get cake. Does this have something to do with the corona thing? I guess so, Susan is nodding yes and it is time to tell you what she’s been up to this week.

The Amazon ad thing continues and that’s getting boring. But, this is exciting, Susan has designed a new cover for The Blue Pendant and if her readers like it she’ll redesign the other covers for the Sackville Hotel Trilogy (she already did a new cover for the box set). My parting wish today is for mothers, my own mom lives in Quebec.

So here’s a big Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers.
