Grandma Gertie always said there's not a savory dish that can't be made tastier by just a touch of tarragon.

From Nuisance to Blessing

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive will be on sale September 28. It's available on for preorder now, for $10.08.

This book contains a story I initially called "Oh, Fudge...Another Nudge," about how Ken's furry Flour Mill mutt, Natty, dragged me into daily walks around Pend Oreille Loop. The vet, who is also my neighbor, told me Natty needed to lose some weight. Who doesn't, I thought to myself, but got out the leash. I've lost ten pounds...won't know how much Natty has shed until early December when he goes in for his shots.

The editors at Chicken Soup renamed the tale "From Nuisance to Blessing," which is how I described my change of attitude towards this particular animal. Now, despite that the temperature's edging toward 90, we're off for a trot, good old Natty and me.

  1. Color me green--with envy, that is. I'm so ashamed to see that I never responded to your note following my last comment. You wouldn't have had time to read it anyway, would you?

    If you could have fitted me into your suitcase for this trip you're on now, I'd have gone in a minute! Enjoy, become a sponge, and soak up all you can!
