Abby Lab here - now that Grandpa's house sold and the 87 tons of stuff in it is sold or given to charity, Mom is taking 3 weeks off from Squirrel Headquarters to finish her 5th book. With all the noisy house renovations that Dad has been working on these last six months she's not been able to write on the weekends and by the time she gets off work she says her muse is dead.
So blogging will just be a couple of times a week until mid March but drop in on Facebook if you are on there (we are on as L.B. Johnson - with the photo being the Barkley book).
On the plus side, I get my favorite dog walker a LOT more often!
