Not My birthday! Miss Penny speaking, as you all know I’m a princess but the lime light turned to Susan this week, which was very disconcerting. You guessed, it was Susan’s birthday and a big birthday. Wow! I’m not allowed to say how old, but in dog years, remember 7 years to 1 human year, she is 11.43 years old. I choose not comment on this picture. Delusional I think. Really! Susan who are you kidding? Maybe thirty years ago.
Um … not that old. I’m not sure what all the fuss is about except I’ve been locked in the office a lot while she goes galavanting to meet friends. One day it was to the park (we’re still under Covid restrictions) and get this I wasn’t included. I kid you not, she went to the park without me. She said I wasn’t allowed in that part of the park. So, I suggested she go to the part where I was allowed. But no, I was
abandoned in the office with the door closed, I hate the door closed. And then, the very next day, her actual birthday, I realized as the make-up and a new blouse went on she was off again. I tried to hide but I was unceremoniously shoved in the office, abandoned again. As if that was not bad enough, I had to put up with the phone jangling in my ears and people kept popping up on her laptop screen and … Yep, I, the princess, was ignored. I am contemplating what to do to get attention. Maybe I’ll chew a shoe or eat Milkbones in the bed. The problem is I get into trouble and she did give me extra cuddles last night. I heard rumblings there is a BBQ tonight and I’m included, now that’s exciting. I’m just teasing, well
sort of… I am miffed but I do wish Susan a Happy Birthday. Oh, here comes the evil eye, but there’s not much to add today. Susan has been working feverishly on advertising the second edition of Prelude to Sophie’s War, both ebook and print are now available on Amazon and Heart of Sophie’s War is available on preorder.

Now, that image is funny. All for now folks, see you next week.
